This place was a valley surrounded by mountain ranges.

Among the valley, spiritual medicines and flowers of all shapes bloomed. The scenery was absolutely stunning.

A white foggy mist twirled around a cabin. Ling Xian lied flat on a stone bed with his eyes squeezed shut. He was not moving and was in a state of unconsciousness.

His slightly frowning brows demonstrated the pain he was currently in.

However, compared to his weakened state from that day, he has improved a lot. It was apparent how powerful that golden colored blood drop was.

Inside the cabin, the lady in white stood tall and stared at the five colored skies outside. It was unknown what she was thinking about.

"Ugh…"

A faint moaning noise interrupted the silence as Ling Xian slowly gained consciousness. He innocently opened his eyes and checked out his surroundings.

"Where… is this?"

The lady in white slowly turned around, and her graceful face displayed a slight grin, "You have awakened a day earlier than I anticipated. You sure have a strong physique."

"I am assuming you brought me here."

Ling Xian’s brows locked tightly together as he tried to remember exactly what happened. He slowly started to remember getting extremely hurt and passing out.

Then, using his spiritual energy, he checked out his internal organs and realized that he was not at all hurt. It was as if he never experienced the great battles.

This overwhelmed Ling Xian. He, in fact, did inflict those injuries. How could he be completely okay right now?

Suddenly, he remembered something and asked with a frown, "You saved me?"

"That’s right. Other than me, who else can save you around here?" the lady in white spoke with her airy voice and in her elegant ways, beautiful like a fairy.

"That’s true. To have had such bad injuries… even spiritual medicine may not have cured me." Ling Xian nodded and smiled. "Thank you."

"Your thanks is not at all said from the bottom of your heart." The lady in white had a calm expression, and one cannot tell her emotions from it at all.

"Then how do I thank you?" Ling Xian smiled and hopped off the bed. He then bowed down deeply at the beauty with a grin. "Fairy, how is this then?"

"It will do."

The lady in white managed to squeeze a smile. In that instant, all flowers lost their pedals, and the moon lost its shine.

Astonishment flashed across Ling Xian’s starry eyes. Though he has encountered countless beauties in his life, he was still somewhat dazzled.

Out of all the women he has met, by their faces alone, only the Untainted was comparable to the beauty before him now. Even Lin Qing Yi and the Demonic Fairy would pale in comparison.

However, if temperament was considered as well, then those two would be placed just as high.

"No matter what, I do have to thank you properly." Ling Xian faintly smiled. He was a grateful person. No matter what the reason was for the lady in white to help him, she did save him. That was undeniable.

The beauty shook her head slightly. "Don’t take it too seriously. I helped you because I saw your shocking potential. You had the ability to kill that person and helped me regain control over the Medicinal Garden of Immortality."

"Thanks to you, after you defeated that person, I silently regained 20% of the area he overtook. He no longer has the strength to bully others using the garden anymore." The lady in white smiled brightly out of happiness.

"That’s good. When I breakthrough to the foundational undefeatable realm, I will pick him out." Ling Xian nodded. He suddenly remembered Lu Chao Xian and Fang Yun, and he asked, "Oh right, how are my two friends?"

"I brought them here as well. Wait here."

The lady in white whispered before disappearing on the spot, causing Ling Xian’s pupils to restrict. "Telepathy. This lady sure has scary capabilities."

Before long, the beauty returned to the cabin with one man in each hand.

It was Lu Chao Xian and Fang Yun. When they saw Ling Xian, excitement crawled up their brows.

"Hehe, brother! To see you alive is an amazing feeling." Fang Yun chuckled, tears brimming in his eyes.

Noticing the tears in Fang Yun’s eyes, Ling Xian’s heart warmed knowing that he truly cared about him. He laughed, "What are you saying? Seeing me alive? You want me dead?"

"I heard from this lady that you first fought against Di Tian, then battled the seven Heaven’s Favorites of the same level. To still be alive is not an easy feat!"

Fang Yun exclaimed as he stared at Ling Xian admiringly. "Under these conditions, you killed four of them. That is far too heaven-defying."

"Yeah, faced with the seven Heaven’s Favorites’ alliance, you ended up killing four of them and scared the rest away. Such beast moves will shock all 36 islands." Lu Chao Xian sighed deeply, feeling more and more useless about himself as he realized there was no way for him to catch up to Ling Xian.

"I was only able to hold on because I had beliefs."

Ling Xian’s expression was normal without a trace of arrogance. He was not about to get cocky over this incident.

"Hehe, that is still beastly. Brother, I am very certain that I want to follow you now." Fang Yun’s face was calculative. "I can't wait for the day you rule the world. When it happens, who will bully me?"

"Don’t dream such a dream. The day may come when Ling Xian rules the world, but you will never be able to walk anywhere you want to walk." Lu Chao Xian poured cold water on Fang Yun's farfetched dream ruthlessly.

"Pfftt, you are just jealous." Fang Yun smirked and walked before Ling Xian. Shyly, he said, "Brother, if you need anything at all, let me know. I promise to complete it for your flawlessly."

"You…"

Ling Xian laughed while shaking his head, "Alright, seeing that you are all safe, I will no longer worry. You should leave for now. I need to rest my body a little."

Hearing this, Lu Chao Xian and Fang Yun nodded and walked out of the cabin.

"You want to attempt to break through to the undefeatable realm of the foundational level?" the lady in white suddenly asked.

Ling Xian softly smiled, "Yeah. It wasn’t easy getting the Yellow Fruit of Mystery. It’s better to try and breakthrough earlier than later."

"That is good. Breaking through earlier means I can regain my control earlier." The lady in white nodded, "Don’t worry. While you enlighten yourself, I will set up a protective array over this place so nobody can interrupt you."

"Thank you." Ling Xian showed his respect with a smile.

"No need for that. Okay, you can begin now." The lady in white waved her hand and walked out the room. Casually, she set up an array to stop others from entering.

"Now I can start my breakthrough."

Watching the lady in white leave, Ling Xian’s eyes glossed over with heat. Using his mental strength, the Fruit of Mystery appeared in midair.

This item was completely mud yellow and was surrounded by two bands of mysterious spiritual energy. It appeared cryptic and strange.

This was the highly ranked Yellow Fruit of Mystery that could help foundational cultivators break through to the undefeatable realm and allow them to walk further on this journey of cultivation.

In other words, this item was priceless and could drive all foundational cultivators insane.

"I finally got my hands on the Yellow Fruit of Mystery."

Staring at the very yellow fruit, Ling Xian’s lips curled. With this fruit, he could now enter the realm countless cultivators dream of entering.

The undefeatable realm!

Just like the undefeatable realm of the meditational stage, this was a realm occupied by victors. Those in this realm gets to enjoy being the best of their generation and will have no opponents!

Therefore, all the cultivators dreamed of entering the undefeatable realm. This not only meant they would be undefeatable amongst peers of the same level, but it also meant they would have a sturdy foundation. With this foundation, once they reach the completion level, they will unlock their true potential and realize the true advantages of being in the undefeatable realm.

Sadly, after the incident that changed the course of nature, nobody has been able to enter the undefeatable realm. Even those scary devils whose talent were out of the world were unable to achieve this.

If anyone could enter the undefeatable realm, with Ling Xian’s talent, he would’ve made it a long time ago.

Only with the aid of external items, such as the Yellow Fruit of Mystery, could cultivators break through. The top two people from the Hidden Dragon List entered the realm using this method.

"The real and true foundational undefeatable realm, I have been waiting for this for a long time."

Ling Xian’s cheeks were flushed. No longer hesitating, he sat on the stone bed in a lotus position. Waving around his hand, the entire Yellow Fruit of Mystery was consumed by him.

The fruit entered his stomach and immediately dissolved. The purest form of spiritual medicine washed over his organs and veins.

Instantly, Ling Xian frowned as he felt his body being burned by flames like he was being baked in an oven.

Drops of sweat rolled off his forehead and instantly evaporated.

Ling Xian’s face and body were all bright red. Above his head was a giant cloud of redness that hung in midair.

"Is this the pain that I must endure?"

Ling Xian’s brows were tightly locked together as he gritted his teeth in the face of this excruciating pain.

However, this pain was far too severe. Even with his iron-hard strong will, he couldn’t help but to clench his fist and grit his teeth in pain.

"Endure! It would waste everything else you’ve done!"

Ling Xian gritted his teeth hard, knowing full well that he cannot give up now or else he would have wasted a Yellow Fruit of Mystery and maybe even lose his life.

For this reason, he endured the pain and held on. Swearing that he won’t give up.

What could he do? He had to endure no matter what. This was a price he had to pay if he wanted to enter the foundational undefeatable realm. Nobody can skip this step.

"Endure, you have to make it through this."

Ling Xian continued his deep frown as he breathed through the pain. He had no strength to defend against this with his spiritual energy and could only allow this heat to rip through his heart and lungs.

Luckily, this agony didn’t continue for much longer. After 15 minutes, it disappeared without a trace.

"Phew… The burning pain finally passed." Ling Xian exhaled. Sweat had soaked through his clothes.

However, before he could even finish breathing, he inhaled again.

Another round of agony had slammed into him. This time, it was not a burning pain, but instead, he was thrown into an icy hell.

Instantly, the temperature in the air dropped below freezing point.

Waves of coldness washed over him as he felt himself fall into a snow mountain. His brows frosted over and all his sweat were frozen in that instant.

"After experiencing being burned alive, I am now hit with frigid coldness. I really…" Ling Xian scorned, unsure of what to say.

He could only hold onto his body and pray that this round of pain will pass by.

After another 15 minutes, this round of coldness finally subsided, and the air returned to normal.

Bands of Yin and Yang swirled out of Ling Xian’s body and wrapped tightly around him like a cocoon.

Then, Heaven and Earth fell into silence with the exception of one man’s heavy breathing. He was waiting to be reborn, to metamorphose into a butterfly.
