Chapter 52: Spirit Fruit! Xiao Qingge’s Choice!
Li Ran rubbed his chin as he looked at Yue Jianli’s fleeting figure.
“Really white~ but the problem is that it’s a little small and needs more development…”
It was indeed as he had expected.
Yue Jianli was very strong. She was simply not on the same level as Song Qingsong.
That torrential rain sword was definitely not her strongest trump card, but it was enough to cut an ordinary Golden Core Realm cultivator into meat paste.
“That sword is quite famous as well, and its quality is extremely high. At the very least, it isn’t inferior to the Yun Ling Spear, it’s probably just slightly inferior to the spear.”
Li Ran lowered his head and looked around. There were broken walls and ruins around him.
He couldn’t help but shake his head. “A woman’s destructive power is scary. A good medicinal garden was reduced to this…”
Li Ran felt that he had forgotten something. “Where is Sun Qing?!”
He had forgotten about this girl, she wouldn’t have been killed by the sword, right?
Li Ran patrolled around the shattered ground.
“I’m here!” Xiao Qingge poked her head out from a hiding spot behind the withered tree.”
Li Ran heaved a sigh of relief and landed in front of her.
Although her face was covered in dust, she was not injured at all. Her clothes were unscathed.
“Your luck is good enough, how else can you avoid such torrential rain?” Li Ran said with surprise.
Xiao Qingge smiled and said, “I noticed the moment you started fighting, so I hid behind this Spirit Fruit Tree. No matter how crazed Yue Jianli was, she would subconsciously avoid hurting this immortal material.”
“Smart.” Li Ran gave a thumbs up.
“Hehe, I’m an expert in hiding,” Xiao Qingge proudly replied.
To be able to survive alone for five days in the Grand Myriad Mountain Range, one had to rely on one’s adaptability and sixth sense.
“You said just now that this is a Spirit Fruit Tree?” Li Ran asked.
“Mm.” Xiao Qingge nodded. “According to the Immortal Record, the Spirit Fruit is full of life, yet it grows on the withered tree. It can be deciphered into the meaning that one’s life and death are intertwined to each other.”
“As for this Spirit Fruit Tree, in the hundred meters radius, not even a single spirit herb can grow. It’s probably because the Spirit Fruit Tree has taken the vitality of the surrounding place.” She wasn’t someone who would rashly intrude into the secret realm and had made sufficient preparations.
“You know quite a lot… Then do you know how to pluck this thing off?” Li Ran asked.
“Spirit Fruit is different from other immortal materials, it doesn’t require any techniques, even mortals could easily harvest it… It’s just that it has a small requirement for the pickers.” Xiao Qingge replied.
“What requirements?” Li Ran said curiously.
Xiao Qingge became a little bashful as she stated in a shy tone, “The Spirit Fruit is abundant in Yang essence. It can only be picked from the place where one’s Yin essence is still present. Otherwise, most of its medicinal properties will be lost…”
“It has such a monstrous request?” Li Ran sized up Xiao Qingge. “Can you do it?”
“If not, I’ll catch Yue Jianli and make her pick the fruit.”
That girl had a cold expression on her face. She obviously wasn’t interested in men, and her vital yin was, for sure, intact.
“Of course, I can do it!” Xiao Qingge stomped her feet in embarrassment, “I’m not that kind of woman!”
“Alright, please begin your performance.”
Huu~ Xiao Qingge calmed down and carefully picked the fruit.
The instant the fruit left the branch, the entire withered tree collapsed and instantly turned into ash.
The mission was completed.
As for where the dust would fly, it would all depend on a good fortune if the next living Spirit Fruit can emerge.
Xiao Qingge held the Spirit Fruit in her hands; she could feel the vigorous life within it.
This was what she had risked her life to find. It was also the key to whether she could recover her talent and re-embark on the path of cultivation.
She looked at the fruit and then Li Ran. She reached out her hand and said, “Here you go.”
“Ah?” Li Ran was stunned. “Isn’t this what you’re looking for? Why are you giving it to me?”
Xiao Qingge shook her head. “This Spirit Fruit isn’t mine, it’s yours.”
“If it weren’t for you, I would’ve already turned to a corpse in the wilderness. I wouldn’t have had the chance to enter the secret realm, and I wouldn’t have been able to reach this level.”
“Therefore, this Spirit Fruit should belong to you.”
Li Ran scratched his head and said, “But you picked this fruit.”
“Without me, you would have other methods to pick the fruit,” Xiao Qingge replied. “It has nothing to do with me.”
Li Ran smiled, “Alright, then it’s mine. Can’t I give it to you?”
After getting along with Xiao Qingge for the past few days, he witnessed her unyielding spirit despite being on the verge of death several times. Even this made him gasp in admiration at her persistence and strength.
Even if it was from the fruit of his success, this fruit should still belong to her.
Xiao Qingge was silent for a long time and said seriously, “I still can’t take it.”
“Why? Don’t you risk your life for it?” He really couldn’t understand.
Xiao Qingge stuffed the spirit fruit into his hand, her eyes filled with tenderness.
“The inheritance is about to occur, a fierce battle is unavoidable. Even though you’re very strong, this is an ancient emperor’s inheritance. You can not underestimate the severity of the upcoming trials.”
“Song Qingsong is clever and cunning, Yue Jianli had her secrets. What if something unexpected were to happen…”
“You can save your life at the critical moment if you keep the Spirit Fruit.”
Li Ran looked at the tenderness in her eyes, and his heart suddenly felt a bit awkward. “Then what will you do?”
Xiao Qingge smiled and gently pressed against his chest. She listened to the vigorous heartbeat.
“Only if you live will all the things I’ve done be meaningful.”
“If you can successfully walk out of the secret realm, and this fruit has not been used yet, then come to Wuyang City to find me.”
“I’ll be waiting for you…”
