Chapter 243: Collusion

"The reason you told me this information isn’t just to trade for your freedom, am I right?"

Ling Xian faintly smiled. Directly staring at the beautiful lady before him, he seemed to be able to see right through her.

"Hmm?"

The Demonic Fairy raised an eyebrow, she didn’t expect Ling Xian to see through her intention right away. However, now that he pointed her out, she went with the flow and admitted, "You’re right. Half of the reason why I told you is to regain my freedom. But the other half…"

Before she could finish talking, Ling Xian interrupted her, "The other reason is that you want me to fight against the House of Zi Yang. Then, you would be the one to catch the fish in the muddled water."

"Originally, I did think of that. But I have changed my mind since then." Qin Yan Ge’s lips quivered, then a bright smile crawled up her lovely face. In that second, the entire home brightened.

"Changed your mind…" Ling Xian played with the teacup in his hand with a grin, "You want to collude, am I right?"

"How smart."

Qin Yan Ge praised, "That’s right. Our target is the Yellow Fruit of Mystery. With a common target, we naturally can form a collusion."

"It is necessary that we collude. If it’s really as you say, then when the Palace of Fortune opens its doors, the House of Zi Yang will do everything in its power to snatch everything in that entire place," Ling Xian analyzed the situation. "When that happens, neither of us will have any hope of acquiring the Yellow Fruit of Mystery. Collusion is our only way."

"Yes. The reason why I agreed to become the Supreme Headmaster of Zi Yang House is to investigate just how much capability this House really had." Qin Yan Ge softly sighed. "The result of my investigation is that I need a partner."

"What you mean is that other than the abilities the House of Zi Yang displays on the surface, it has hidden sources of power as well?" Ling Xian frowned.

"Yes, that part is clear. Other than Zi Dong Lai, the completion leveled cultivator, there are at least two other completion leveled cultivators. As to whether or not there are original leveled cultivators… I am not too sure," Qin Yan Ge spoke slowly.

The atmosphere grew heavy.

Three completion leveled!

This teamwork can be said to be highly overpowering. Ling Xian was only a foundational, even if he were now a completion leveled cultivator, he would still feel the pressure.

"Three completion leveled…"

Ling Xian’s heart fell, "It appears that it will be difficult to acquire the Yellow Fruit of Mystery."

"If we collude, there is a sliver of hope," Qin Yan Ge felt the same amount of pressure.

"That is our only way. The Yellow Fruit of Mystery is far too tempting. Even if it costs my life, I do not want to give it up." Ling Xian nodded, his expression serious.

To become undefeatable, he must break through to the undefeatable realm of the foundational level!

Because that was the only way to ensure his cultivation foundation is deeply rooted. Only after achieving that, will Ling Xian become a pioneer that paves a new path in this cultivation journey!

For all that, the Yellow Fruit of Mystery is a must!

"Good. Then from now on, we are officially in a collusion." Qin Yan Ge grinned from ear to ear.

"I accept. But we must establish one thing first. If there happens to only be one Yellow Fruit of Mystery, how should we divide that among ourselves?" Ling Xian faintly smiled.

"Um…"

Qin Yan Ge raised an eyebrow and thought about it for a while, "Half each?"

"That is a fair solution. But what if the effects of the medicine also halves, wouldn’t that mean all our efforts are down the drain?" Ling Xian’s brows furrowed.

The Demonic Fairy lifted an eyebrow, "Then how do you think we should split it?"

"We can decide after we get our hands on it. It isn’t for sure that there is a Yellow Fruit of Mystery inside the Palace of Fortune. It also isn’t for sure that we can get our hands on it." Ling Xian smiled and did not linger on this topic any longer.

The Demonic Fairy was a little startled and unsettled, uncertain whether or not this collusion was good or bad.

After all, Ling Xian is more capable than her and had a higher intelligence.

With her personality, since she has decided to collude, she will not regret the decision. Even if she was a little unsettled, she had to continue living with her decision.

Sensing Qin Yan Ge’s abnormal expression, Ling Xian understood. He smiled. "The Demonic Fairy, you are worried that after acquiring the Yellow Fruit of Mystery I would target you?"

"Yes. I do not know you that well after all," Qin Yan Ge admitted without any second thoughts.

Ling Xian lost his composure and laughed. "Don’t worry. I am not that small of a person."

"No small person would admit that they are small," Qin Yan Ge said.

"If you really want to think of me that way, then I have nothing else to say." Ling Xian shook his head, finding it hard to believe that the Demonic Fairy had such little trust in him.

He also felt far too lazy to explain himself. As time goes on, his actions will prove his character.

What kind of person Ling Xian was, the test of time will tell!

"We will have to do this step by step. You are the most suitable partner I can think of." Qin Yan Ge sighed deeply. To break through to the undefeatable realm of the foundational level, she had to go down this steep and dangerous path.

No matter how untrusting she was of Ling Xian, she had to continue walking down this path.

[I sure hope the righteousness isn’t something he has been faking.] Qin Yan Ge thought to herself. Remembering the heroic ways Ling Xian fought the battle the other day, her eyes shone with color.

A person with such a big heart and so much pride… how bad can he be?

Just then, a crisp voice suddenly appeared from outside the door.

"Master, my respectful Master, I haven’t seen you in three months, I’ve missed you to death!"

Yun Meng busted through the door of Ling Xian’s home; Yun Yan was following behind her. However, compared to Yun Meng, her pace was a lot slower, much more ladylike and graceful.

"You have guests. I shall leave. Remember what we agreed on for what will happen in two months."

Seeing the two sisters, Qin Yan Ge frowned and walked out of Ling Xian’s home.

"Master, why is the Demonic Fairy here? Did she really come to be your servant?" Yun Meng’s little mouth parted, her eyes full of shock.

Yun Yan felt the same way. Watching Qin Yan Ge’s back, her profile was ridden with shock and complexity.

"She was merely here to visit."

Ling Xian brushed off the comment quickly and patted Yun Meng’s little head, "It’s been three months, and you haven’t visited me. What made you come today?"

"Hehe, I was afraid of interrupting your training," Yun Meng stuck out her tongue, a little guilty.

"You sure have a way with your words," Ling Xian chuckled and shifted his gaze to Yun Meng, "How have things been? Have you gotten used to living here?"

"It’s been well. Thank you for asking," Yun Yan beamed happily. Staring at the handsome young man, she felt her cheeks flush with color.

"You… Even if things aren’t going well, you will say it’s going well." Ling Xian shook his head, "Yun Yan, if you ever run into any trouble, come and find me. Don’t try to handle everything yourself because you are afraid you would trouble me."

"Okay, Master, I will." Yun Yan nodded lightly, the red in her cheeks deepened.

"Hehe, Master, my sister is too shy to say anything, but today, we really are in need of your help." Yun Meng has an outgoing personality. Before Ling Xian, she always speaks what’s on her mind without thinking it over.

"I knew that you wouldn’t come find me if you didn’t need anything," Ling Xian patted Yun Meng’s little head and smiled, "Tell me, what do you need?"
