“The second plan, the difficult thing is to collect the materials. If we work hard, maybe we can still make it someday. You don’t need to worry about making it. I promised you, so I will try my best to. Divine wrath doesn’t scare me. Materials for Yin Dan are difficult to find, but we don’t need to despair about it…”
Ye Xiao said, “The inner core of the spiritual beast, I am sure I can get it. It all depends on man effort. We don’t need to worry too much about the first step. I can promise about the inner core. The other eight, I don’t have confidence now. However, there is something we can do… There is a realm beyond Land of Han-Yang, Qing-Yun Realm. In Qing-Yun Realm, there are three martial courts. Every once in a hundred years, the martial courts will open. At that time, there will be people from the netherworld and also from the heaven’s realm… Everybody will show up and keep themselves informed. They will exchange their materials for other’s…”
“I think we can get these things there. It is nearly impossible for people in the Yang World, but for people from netherworld and heaven’s realm, it may not be that hard.”
Ye Xiao said, “That’s it. Two plans, both are not easy.”
Zhao Pingtian took a long breath out and spoke with a sad face, “Today I have learned that the universe is so abroad. I have always thought that I was strong enough to ignore everything and every man, but it turns out I am nothing but a complete joke. There truly is heavens beyond another…”
“Rou-Er, when will I be able to see you and be together with you…”
He sighed with a long breath.
The girl in the grey fog looked at him obsessively, as if she was weeping.
“With your current cultivation level, you’re just one step away from the Qing-Yun Realm. When you get to Qing-Yun Realm, with your potential, I believe it will only take you three hundred years to reach Dao Origin Stage!”
Ye Xiao blandly spoke, “In Land of Han-Yang, it sounds impossible to reach it, but when you are in Qing-Yun Realm, you will understand it may not be that difficult to do. It just looks difficult. If you can survive in the martial world that is full of killings, living on, step by step, you will eventually make it! I believe with your determination, it won’t be too long!”
Zhao Pingtian was spirited. He took a deep breath in and said word by word, “If only things will go as you say. No matter how hard it is, I will do it for my Rou-Er!”
Ye Xiao seriously said, “But there may be some uncertainty, or should I say guarantee…”
“What uncertainty? What guarantee?” Zhao Pingtian asked.
“First, you accidentally make Rou-Er’s body and Yin Fruit merge together, but it will only last for a hundred years. It is better than the Yang Fruit though. After a hundred years, if she still hasn’t reincarnated, she will vanish because the Yin Fruit will be used up…”
When he said so, Zhao Pingtian and Rou-Er were both stunned. Ye Xiao bitterly smiled, “I haven’t finished yet, please don’t panic. I said there is uncertainty. It is not a bad news. I just want to tell you that I have a way to make the Yin Fruit last forever. Every once in a while, I will make some Soul Protection Dan beads. That will make sure Rou-Er stays.”
“In the first hundred years, one dan bead will bring her ten years. It won’t last forever though. As time passes, the efficacy will be reduced. About a hundred years later, she will have to take two dan beads at a time for ten years. Two hundred years later, she will need three…”
Ye Xiao said, “It is not such a big problem though. Quantity can save quality anyway. We will just need to make more dan beads and collect more materials. It won’t be a problem for Ling-Bao Hall!”
Zhao Pingtian’s face changed and changed again. After a while, he said, “I really appreciate your kindness, Feng Monarch. I am a happy man no matter how many difficulties I will encounter, no matter how many dangers stand before me, if I can see Rou-Er for even just one time. I don’t care if I need to spend three hundred years, even five hundred years, a century…”
Ye Xiao smiled. “Brother Zhao, you are making the standard a bit too low though. It is more than this… Much more…”
Zhao Pingtian was shocked. He said, “What do you mean? Did I mistake something?!”
Ye Xiao shook his head and said, “I mean Brother Zhao you are asking for little. Don’t you remember what I said? I said if any of the two plans works, you and Rou-Er can be together forever! If you just want to see her for once, we don’t need neither of these plans!”
Zhao Pingtian was shocked. He spoke with a shaking voice, “Feng Monarch, do you have other method that can bring Rou-Er to my sight?”
Ye Xiao nodded and said with a smile, “It is not so difficult to just let you see her as long as we do the right thing in the right time and the right place. Every 15th July in lunar calendar, the Yang World has most yin qi in the year. We just need to find a place where there is an enormous amount of yin qi and Rou-Er takes a Soul Restraint Dan bead in advance. Rou-Er will be able to show up in this world for two hours!”
“Then you can see the one you love the most… There is something we need to be careful about though. You have to remember that you cannot get too close to her. She is still a spirit. You are a man with strong yang qi. If your yang qi clashes with the yin qi, it will make other spirits form into a tide of spirits. They will very possibly whirl Rou-Er away with them to the netherworld… That will be a disaster!”
“Really? So I can see Rou-Er on 15th July?” Zhao Pingtian couldn’t believe it. He kept asking!
“More than once. You can use this method every year. In other words, you and Rou-Er can meet once every year for two hours!” Ye Xiao spoke with a smile.
“Every year? Two hours? Are you serious?” Zhao Pingtian was breathless. His pupils dilated three times because of excitement. He was apparently stimulated by Ye Xiao’s shocking news.
“So I can see her before I reach Dao Origin Stage? I… I…” Zhao Pingtian’s face turned red. He didn’t know where to put his hands and feet now. The surprise truly made him lose his mind.
In the grey fog, Rou-Er was looking at Ye Xiao with excitement too.
Rou-Er was now a soul. She knew much more about the netherworld than Ye Xiao. She knew that Ye Xiao was being honest. It was a practical way he said. She was even happier than Zhao Pingtian, as she knew she would be able to talk to her beloved once again.
