1823 A Windfall From the Sky
Peach Blossom Dock was the place where she first met Rong Xiu.
It was an extremely special place. Although that place also belonged to the God Residence Realm, the realm barrier was weak, and the space was extremely unstable. From time to time, it would be destroyed by spatial turbulence. If one wasn’t careful, they would die inside.
It was extremely dangerous. Therefore, there had never been any aristocratic families guarding that place. After all, staying alive was the most important thing.
If they had to face life and death danger all the time and couldn’t obtain any benefits from going to a place, then what was the point of going?
Peach Blossom Dock was such a place. There were no natural treasures or peerless opportunities there. There were only rolling mountains and large peach blossom forests.
For some reason, the peach blossoms at Peach Blossom Dock didn’t bloom and wither according to season. Moreover, the flowering period was very long. Sometimes, they would be in full bloom for several years. Because of this, the world gave it an extremely beautiful name—Peach Blossom Dock.
However, Peach Blossom Dock wasn’t deserted. On the contrary, there were a lot of people there. This was because many people from outside the God Residence Realm would choose to go to Peach Blossom Dock when there was no other way to pass through the barrier.
Compared to other places, Peach Blossom Dock had almost no threshold and was very easy to enter. Of course, if they made this decision, it didn’t mean that cultivators could really enter the God Residence Realm smoothly.
Peach Blossom Dock was dangerous everywhere. From the moment someone entered to the moment they successfully walked out and officially became a person in the God Residence Realm, there was less than a 1% chance. But even so, there were still people trying.
In addition, for the people in the God Residence Realm, Peach Blossom Dock was an absolute area without any jurisdiction. It was very suitable for those who had nowhere to go.
There was abundant natural energy there; logically speaking, it was very suitable for cultivation. But because of the unstable space and the fact that nobody could figure out a way to solve this problem, Peach Blossom Dock was gradually abandoned.
In the God Residence Realm, all the aristocratic families that could develop needed a stable and powerful place to cultivate. Peach Blossom Dock clearly didn’t meet this condition.
In short, Peach Blossom Dock was very chaotic and dangerous. It was definitely a place where good and bad people mixed together.
Ever since they left that place, they had never returned.
“How did San San get there?” Chu Liuyue was very shocked. “Why didn’t you mention this before?”
Cen Yi smiled faintly. “This is his own choice. I’ve advised him once, but you know his personality. In the past few years, he’s spent most of his time in Peach Blossom Dock and will send a letter back from time to time. Overall, he’s doing quite well, so I let him be. I didn’t mention it to you earlier because I happened to be in time for your wedding, so I wanted to tell you after your wedding. It’s the same. In addition, this matter is actually not that important. As for the details… You’ll know after reading the letter.”
He took out a letter from his pocket and handed it over. It was a very thick letter.
Taking it, Chu Liuyue opened the letter and shook out a few pieces of paper. At a glance, they were filled with dense small words.
The sight of it gave her a headache. She couldn’t help but say, “It’s been so many years. Why hasn’t he changed his habit of nagging?”
She and the Thirteen Yue Guard had a unique way of contacting each other. Generally speaking, they didn’t write much. Even if they really wanted to write, a few sentences were usually enough.
Only San San liked to write letters. He had to write down all the big and small matters.
His letters were never less than five pieces of paper each time.
Cen Yi smiled. “He always has been like this, you know.”
Chu Liuyue tidied up the letter and read it carefully.
This was indeed San San’s handwriting.
As she read, her expression changed and gradually became serious. When she saw the last one, she finally gasped. “What—what did San San do at Peach Blossom Dock?”
Cen Yi raised his chin and smiled. “Master, you personally taught San San how to settle scores. Can’t you tell what he’s doing?”
Of course, Chu Liuyue could tell!
The first part of this letter was still very normal. It explained what he had eaten and drunk for the past month and how much he missed his master and the Thirteen Yue Guard. But toward the end, there were strings of numbers.
Chu Liuyue looked at it a second time in disbelief and realized that it was an account book!
San San had actually opened a shop in Peach Blossom Dock, and this letter recorded the profits of the shop!
Looking at the final surplus—the almost jaw-dropping number—her mind went blank for a moment.
“Did he open a shop or rob someone?”
One had to know that Chu Liuyue was considered rich now. She first obtained a lot of money from her ancestor, and later, Rong Xiu sent her a Cosmic Ring. Her current wealth was considered not bad in the entire God Residence Realm.
For her to be so shocked, it was obvious how terrifying the number on the letter was.
The most infuriating thing was that San San seemed to know that Cen Yi and the others were coming to the Sky-Cloud Empire to attend her wedding ceremony. He also knew that Cen Yi would show her this letter later, so she specially wrote a message to Chu Liuyue in the end.
The general meaning was that Peach Blossom Dock was too far away from the Sky-Cloud Empire. He really couldn’t come over in such a short period of time.
In addition, business in the shop hadn’t been good recently. He felt very guilty about making little money this month and planned to work hard during this period to increase his profits.
Finally, Chu Liuyue was invited to visit to show his determination to work hard.
Looking at the last few sentences, the corners of Chu Liuyue’s eyes twitched. That is considered little money… That is considered bad business… What has San San experienced in the past few years at Peach Blossom Dock?!
“San San said that now that you’ve decided to stay in the God Residence Realm, it’s time to buy some businesses. He’s already chosen a few places for you to pick. Of course, if you have anything else you like, it’s up to you.” Cen Yi lowered his head slightly, his attitude respectful.
Chu Liuyue held her forehead and did not speak for a while.
She had to take her time. She felt a little dizzy from the impact of money.
