To those of the rich and famous, where one lives and what one eats is of great importance. This is because to those people, these types of things are associated with their own pride and face.

Living in the storage room of the ship, for example, was something many would feel highly dissatisfied with.

However, Ling Xian did not care at all. He has always been low maintenance, and since he was once at the bottom of the food chain, he did not care about those superficial things.

After all, now that a completion leveled cultivator was living here, who dares to disregard this place?

Who dares to call this place a mere storage room.

If those people out there knew that Ling Xian was staying here, they would be begging him to switch rooms with them so that they could stay in the room he once stayed.

This was the advantage brought by capability!

"You… you live here?" Bai Xiao Qi's eyes were full of awe. She never would've thought that a completion leveled cultivator so high above others would live in such a small and ugly room.

Ling Xian grinned lightly. "What, I can't stay here?"

"No, that is not what I meant. I just think…" Bai Xiao Qi stuttered.

"You think it doesn't match my status." Ling Xian chuckled, "Real wealth comes from the soul, from the bones, and should not be reflected through expensive clothing."

"Um…"

Bai Xiao Qi was a little startled. In the Bai Clan, she had always been the pearl in everyone's palm. As a result, she has lived luxuriously and truly believed that she was a princess. After hearing what Ling Xian had to say, she became a little enlightened and realized that she wasn't truly that precious.

"You seem to understand a little now."

Ling Xian concealed a smile. "Everyone is born equal. This means nobody is born rich. Even those born into extraordinary families are not truly high above others. They are simply a little too lucky."

Bai Xiao Qi frowned and nodded as if she understood.

"Alright, let's not talk about this anymore." Ling Xian then asked, "Why did you follow me?"

As he brought this up, Bai Xiao Qi became a little uncomfortable. The fact was that she doesn't even know why she came in. She simply felt hot-headed and followed Ling Xian.

Her face flushed red, and she found herself an excuse, "Nothing much. I just wanted to thank you."

"There is no need. I simply did what I wanted to do. It wasn't exactly to save you." Ling Xian waved his hand and moved his gaze. He then muttered to himself, "It is getting late."

What he meant by this is that Bai Xiao Qi should leave.

Coincidentally, Bai Xiao Qi understood it. Thus she was angered. "What kind of person are you? I came to thank you, yet you want me to go away. Do you hate me that much?"

"This isn't about hate. Since you have nothing else to talk about, why are you still here?" Ling Xian shook his head.

Bai Xiao Qi stomped her feet and hissed, "How petty. My idol would never treat me the way you are treating me."

"Then hurry up and go find your idol." Ling Xian laughed, suddenly finding joy in bullying this cute girl.

"Hmmph, if I know where he is, would I be wasting my time with you?" Bai Xiao Qi mumbled, "Nobody has ever told me to go away in my life."

"Everything has its first. You had your first today," Ling Xian said with a smile.

"You!"

Bai Xiao Qi's face was puffy with redness. She brandished her pink fist angrily, "Damn you! I would be teaching you a lesson right now if I could beat you!"

"Haha…" Ling Xian continued to tease, "But, you can't beat me can you?"

"Ah! I could die from being so angry!" Bai Xiao Qi continued to stomp her feet as she became more annoyed at Ling Xian. She has never been this annoyed at anyone.

Together with this annoyance, she also felt thankful and curious.

It was because of this she chose to continue to stay there. Otherwise, with her temper, she would've left a long time ago.

"If you are dying from being angry, why are you still breathing?"

Ling Xian teased. With his mature personality, he rarely joked with others. However, he was a 20 something year old young man. Faced with a girl like this, he was tempted to joke around.

"Why are you so annoying?" Bai Xiao Qi gritted her teeth from fury. "Do you dare to tell me your name? After I reach Trading Island, I will find someone to teach you a lesson."

"Why wouldn't I dare?"

Ling Xian's lips curled up and spoke out the pseudonym he used once before, "Remember it well. My name is Xian Ling."

"Your last name is Xian?" Bai Xiao Qi was startled, thinking that this name was a dashing one. Then, her brows lifted and suspiciously looked at Ling Xian. She then grumbled, "Your name is similar to my idol's name."

However, she didn't think much about it. After all, the world is highly populated, and many people share the same names.

Because she was grumbling, Ling Xian didn't hear her clearly and asked again, "What are you mumbling about?"

"Hmmph, I am saying how you are a jerk, a meanie!" Bai Xiao Qi's pouting face and her soft mumbling emphasized her cuteness.

"How am I a jerk now? I told you my name didn't I?" Ling Xian taunted.

"Hehe, you are dead."

Bai Xiao Qi made an expression that was of pure ill intention. But because her face was far too cute, nobody could feel any negativity from her. At the very most, people would think she was about to pull a prank.

"Now that I know your name, I will find someone to take care of you after we arrive at Trading Island."

Ling Xian shook his head lightly. "Alright, then I will be waiting for your visit."

"Hehe, just you wait." Bai Xiao Qi brandished her little fist again before running to the door. She looked back, stuck out her tongue, then finally left the storage part of the ship.

"What an interesting young girl."

Ling Xian shook his head laughing, and did not think about this incident again. He said to himself, "I will now wait for a quiet arrival to Trading Island."

He then closed his eyes and began training.

Though this short period of time was rather useless when one uses it to train. But cultivation was like drops of water, only after many drops fall, is a puddle made. Nobody ever gets anywhere in one shot.

Especially after reaching the completion level, even for a rare genius like Ling Xian, there was no way to even step up a tiny step in a short period of time. Most completion leveled cultivators would take decades of time to march up a step.

For this reason, every second is precious when it comes to training.

Ling Xian's dream of one day being above nine heavens is something that requires one to train every second of the day.

Just like that, time passed by slowly but surely. It wasn't long before three days passed.

The busiest and wealthiest island, the Trading Island, was now within reach.
