Ling Yuefeng listened to his wife mention all the effects of the tea and looked at his with a hungry gaze as he held the cup of tea close to him.
'Such magical tea!'
He slowly took a sip, and it was indeed as his wife said.
He felt like he was breaking through to the next cultivation rank already! It was so amazing that he couldn't stop himself from finishing the whole cup of tea.
Ling Yuefeng instantly broke through to the next rank of the Emperor Profound Realm without any obstacles.
With a happy look, Ling Yuefeng turned to look at Sora and said, "I need more of this! Can you give me more? I will repay everything, I will even offer you double of what you may ask!"
Sora smiled hearing Ling Yuefeng, he shook his head and said, "The tea is not up for sale. It's a very limited amount which I can only bring out for guests."
Smiling, Sora continued to drink his tea calmly as he talked with Xuanyuan Yufeng.
"I take it that you also fell in love with the 'A Fairy's Pure Love'," said Sora as he looked at Xuanyuan Yufeng with a smile.
"I did! If I could drink this daily, I'd be happy for the rest of my life..." said Xuanyuan Yufeng. She leaned in close with her eyes fixed on Sora and a small blush encroached upon her face.
Sora continued to drink his tea before suggesting to Xuanyuan Yufeng in a voice only she could hear, "How about you visit me occasionally and you can have more of this tea."
"Really?" she asked with a happy tone.
"Indeed, I will be here to personally receive you and let you drink this tea," Sora said.
He laid back on his chair and glimpsed at Ling Yuefeng, who was talking with Feng Qianhui, with a smirk.
"That's great. I'll be sure to come here often," said Xuanyuan Yufeng as she happily drank her tea.
"So what brings the Grand Palace Mistress of Frozen Cloud Immortal Palace to this Wasteland of Death," asked Ling Yuefeng as his eyes remained fixed on Chu Yuechan.
Feng Qianhui frowned at what Ling Yuefeng was doing and just simply answered, "I don't see why Heavenly Sword Villa's Sect Master should know why I am here."
Ling Yuefeng sent Feng Qianhui a brief look before saying, "I supposed you must be here because of the mountains then."
"Who knows. People have different ambitions and reasons as to the stuff they do," said Feng Qianhui as she sipped from her tea.
Ling Yuefeng looked at Feng Qianhui for a moment before turning to Chu Yuechan.
"What a coincidence to see you here dear Chu Yuechan," said Ling Yuefeng with a smile.
Chu Yuechan ignored Ling Yuefeng and continued drinking her tea as well.
She had already dealt with Ling Yuefeng in the past. Every time they would meet, he would try to court her, yet he would never gain as much as a single glance.
Feng Qianhui gave a calm smile seeing what Chu Yuechan was doing and focused back on Sora. She talked with him and Xuanyuan Yufeng.
"Ah! How rude of me Senior Sora," fl.u.s.teredly said Xuanyuan Yufeng as she stood up and bowed. "I have forgotten to introduce my children that I left in the other carriage."
Sora smiled and said, "No worries. Bring them over here."
"Yes," charmingly smiled Xuanyuan Yufeng before heading over to the carriage and opening the door herself.
"Come on out," she said.
Two figures stepped out of the carriage slowly, revealing a young boy and a young man.
Sora looked at the two of them for a second before smiling and nodding.
"What exceptional children you have. Their attitudes and mannerisms are great," said Sora, praising Xuanyuan Yufeng's children.
"Greetings, I am Ling Yun and this is my younger brother Ling Jie," said the young man as he introduced himself and his younger brother.
"Good," nodded Sora. "Have a cup of tea, you both must be exhausted from your journey."
"Go on," urged Xuanyuan Yufeng with a smile.
"Thank you," said Ling Yun as he took a cup of tea and drank it. Ling Jie followed his movements and thanked Sora too before taking a cup of tea.
"You two a good kids. I would like it if you got to know my twins," said Sora with a small smile as he rubbed his chin and thought of Ichijo and Koji.
"I would be glad to meet your children," said Ling Yun with a respectful smile.
"Yeah! I can have spars with them!" said Ling Jie with a wide smile as he gripped the handle of the sword hanging at his waist.
"Good," said Sora with a nod.
'I doubt they are much of a match for them though. They have been training their axe and bow skills for over 30 years now," thought Sora as he compared his children to Ling Yun and Ling Jie.
'They even have me as their teacher!'
"I hope you both can have many spars and increase each other's skills and experience," said Sora with a light chuckle.
"Yes Senior!" said Ling Jie with a wide smile.
'This kid is so innocent and naive,' thought Sora with a shake of his head. 'He's a good kid nonetheless.'
"Heavenly Sword Villa and Frozen Cloud Immortal Palace, you both are far from 'home'," said an arrogant voice from where the carriages were.
Sora sat down and looked at the young man who appeared before him and the rest.
"Fen Duanhun, it's nice to see you here," said Ling Yuefeng as he stood up and greeted Fen Duanhun.
"Why are you here? Are you here to look at the mysterious mountains as well?" Ling Yuefeng gestured for Fen Duanhun to sit down.
"Have some tea young man," said Sora as he passed a cup of tea to Fen Duanhun. "This one is the new master of the Wasteland of Death."
Sora picked up his cup of tea and looked at the man before him with an amused look.
'He's a nice man,' thought Sora as he made a quick summary of the man in his head. Sora looked behind the man and squinted his eyes, 'On the other hand, his son is too ambitious for his own good'
Sora looked at Fen Juecheng, Fen Duanhun's son, for a couple of seconds before focusing on Fen Duanhun.
"I see, I am Fen Duanhun, clan master of Burning Heaven Clan," he said.
"Nice to meet you," said Sora as he gestured for Fen Duanhun to sit before him. "I see you have made your way here from a long distance, just like my two group of guests."
"I have come from far away to find out why these mountains have appeared," said Fen Duanhun. "Since you said you are the master of these lands, would you happen to know why these mountains appeared and why the whole area is filled with a large amount of life-force?"
"Of course I know why all this has happened here," said Sora with a light smile.
'Huhu, this man is pretending to know something he obviously has no idea of,' snickered Ling Yuefeng inside his heart.
"Would you mind if you show some proof?" quietly asked Fen Duanhun with a kind voice.
"When you're asking so nicely, of course I have to show," chuckled Sora as he looked around before turning to look back at Fen Duanhun. "Pay close attention to this, young man."
Everyone around Sora focused on him instantaneously, waiting for him to do something big. Fen Juecheng and Ling Yuefeng both laughed in contempt as they waited for Sora to make a fool of himself before the women.
'Should I make it flashy? Nah, no need for that,' thought Sora as he just waved his hand and used his Void/Nothingness Law energy in his eyes and activated Izanagi. He made a mountain rivaling the sizes of the other mountains right before him and the rest.
As soon as it was created, it was filled with an abundance of life force, healthy plants and trees, clear steaming rivers and ponds, and animals.
The area was filled with silence as everyone looked at the huge mountain with shock.
"He made a mountain with just a wave of his hand" said Ling Yuefeng with a hint of fear in his voice. He looked at Sora and stumbled back as he thanked the heavens that Sora had spared him before.
Feng Qianhui, Chu Yuechan, and Chu Yueli already knew that Sora could create something easily like that. However, it still surprised them seeing him in action rather than just going off on words.
"Amazing" they all thought as they looked at Sora.
"How was that?"
Sora's voice made its way into their ears and they finally came back to reality as they looked at him with amazed looks.
"You don't need any more proof, right?" asked Sora as he looked at Fen Duanhun.
"N-no Senior! Thank you so much for the demonstration!" Fen Duanhun said with a stutter.
"That's nice to hear," said Sora.
Shortly after, two more guests had arrived and Sora was rather displeased by the people already.
The Xiao Sect, no matter how hard he tried looking for a shred of goodwill or good nature, he found none in the people that came to look for him. He can only hope that there children and future generation are better than the past generation.
Heavenly Spear Thunderfire Fortress was even worse!
Sora was really looking forward to them making a 'mishap' and he would have to kill them then and there. Unlike the Xiao Sect, the Heavenly Spear Thunderfire Fortress had an even worse arrogant attitude that was apparent in all the members of their sects.
Getting tired with everything, Sora respectfully had all of them leave.
He invited the Frozen Cloud Immortal Palace to come join him anytime at his sect. He also invited Xuanyuan Yufeng and her children to his sect to drink some tea and have the children spar against each other.
In this way, he made three allies.
On a scale of 1 to 10 from won't help at all to will always be there to help...
Frozen Cloud Immortal Palace, was an 8.
Even if they only knew each other for only two days, it was enough for Sora to have their trust placed on him. It also needs more time for it to be a 10 as well, since not everything is easy like that.
Heavenly Sword Villa was a 7.
Ling Yuefeng was afraid of Sora and would never try to make something bad happen to Sora or his sect. However, the 7 wasn't because of Ling Yuefeng's fear, but from Xuanyuan Yufeng's monitoring and possible pleading.
Since Sora had invited her to come occasionally for tea and she had fallen for Sora's charms, no way would she be willing to let Sora go that easily.
The last one, Burning Heaven Clan was also a 8.
Fen Duanhun is an inherently nice man, it was only his son that was dark. Sora had a way to fix that without Fen Duanhun knowing.
He could just hypnotize the man or make him realize something, but he will leave that for another day.
"I need this Heavenly Crystal Palace to get going," said Sora as he brought Ophis over to him and sat her on his lap.
"How will you do that, master?" asked Jasmine. She stopped training and sat beside Sora, grabbing a cup of tea as well.
Sora smiled and said, "I know a multitude of people who can easily help with that."
"Why is everything about you so mysterious, master?"
Jasmine looked at Sora with a discerning gaze before sighing and just asking. She scratched her pretty little head with confus.e.m.e.nt as she drank the wonderful tea.
"Because I'm not from here," said Sora as he caressed Ophis and Jasmine at the same time with a warm smile.
'And I don't belong anywhere.'
