Ever since Song Shuhang had gotten the crocodile leg, he wanted to go look for Immortal Fairy Bie Xue and have her cook it into something delicious.
Immortal Fairy Bie Xue narrowed her eyes into a smile. “You’re quite smart… To tell you the truth, in the entire world of cultivators, there are no more than ten immortal chefs who can handle this crocodile leg.”
Monster beasts and spiritual beasts were very different from ordinary beasts as they couldn’t be roasted or eaten directly. Spiritual beasts weren’t that bad… but monster beasts had ‘monster energy’ in their bodies, which was completely different from a cultivator’s true qi or spiritual energy.
If one were to directly consume a monster beast, they would explode and die if they couldn’t handle the monster energy. Therefore, when it came to precious monster beast ingredients, it was best to look for an immortal chef to turn it into a proper immortal dish.
“However, I’ll be needing a part of this crocodile leg, around two-thirds of it,” Immortal Fairy Bie Xue said.
This crocodile leg was very big, so one-third of it should be enough for Song Shuhang to eat to his heart’s content.
“Alright. Then, Senior Bie Xue can keep two-thirds of the crocodile leg as a reward.” Song Shuhang nodded.
He just wanted to have a taste of this ‘crocodile leg’. If it was possible, he would even keep some of it and give to those fellow daoists he had a good relationship with.
“This crocodile leg is very precious. As a senior, I can’t take advantage of you,” Immortal Fairy Bie Xue said. “So, we’ll do it like this: besides making a dish from this crocodile leg, I’ll make a table’s worth of ordinary spiritual dishes that can be consumed by ordinary people.”
Immortal Fairy Bie Xue could use ordinary ingredients together with some ingredients from the world of cultivators to create a table of delicacies that even ordinary people could eat.
“Then, I won’t be polite,” Song Shuhang said—it was perfect as he had promised to bring back some lunch for Tubo and the others.
If it were Immortal Fairy Bie Xue’s dishes, then his three roommates would definitely be elated to be able to eat such delicacies.
‘Shi’, who was sitting behind Song Shuhang, silently swallowed her saliva—for the first time, she felt that it was truly not that bad to hang out with Senior Brother Song Shuhang.
Immortal Fairy Bie Xue’s cooking was something that most cultivators would be able to enjoy only at the ‘Immortal Feast’. Yet, it seemed as though there was always a chance to get a taste of Immortal Fairy Bie Xue’s cooking when following Senior Brother Song Shuhang…
“In that case, come here and drive the immortal boat. As for the destination, look at the navigator, I’ve already set it. I’ll deal with this crocodile leg in the meanwhile,” Immortal Fairy Bie Xue said as she lifted the crocodile leg.
Before monster beasts could be used as ingredients, there was a series of tedious but necessary steps to transform the monster energy inside their meat into something edible.
“How long will it take?” Song Shuhang asked.
“Hm, let’s just see. This is the first time I’m dealing with such a crocodile leg. Generally speaking, it takes about one day to refine the monster energy of monster beasts of the Sixth Stage Realm and above,” Immortal Fairy Bie Xue said.
” Immortal Fairy, my meaning was, how long you’ll be occupied with that crocodile leg? Because I’m not very skilled when it comes to driving an immortal boat,” Song Shuhang said.
He had seen several of his seniors drive an immortal boat, and knew about some of the steps to operate it, but he wasn’t very familiar with the process overall.
Immortal Fairy Bie Xue said, “Not long. You just earnestly drive the immortal boat. Once I’m done dealing with this, I’ll handle the immortal boat.” After saying this much, she grabbed the crocodile leg and entered the cabin in the rear portion of the boat so that she could deal with it.
Immortal Fairy Bie Xue really had a relaxed attitude.
“Senior Brother Shuhang, you won’t flip the vehicle, right?” Loli Shi asked in a small voice.
“Don’t worry, your senior brother actually has driven an immortal boat before. Moreover, I even have a pilot’s license, and being in the air doesn’t bother me.” Song Shuhang then added, “Also, we’re flying at a low altitude, so even if we do flip over, the fall wouldn’t hurt much.”
Loli Shi silently nodded her head.
At this time, just as Immortal Fairy Bie Xue’s immortal boat was heading toward the Frenzied Strength Imparter, Daoist Priest Horizon…
A man in a black and white daoist robe stood in mid-air.
He looked handsome, with a figure that was tall and thin and an otherworldly temperament. His long hair was tied up by a headband. At first glance, he appeared to be a dragon amongst men.
Besides that… it was unclear whether it was an illusion or not, but the otherworldly man seemed to have a faint semblance to ‘Venerable White’.
“Has Immortal Fairy Bie Xue still not come?” the otherworldly man asked lightly.
Behind the otherworldly man, a man with a simple and honest face replied, “Young Master, Immortal Fairy seems to have gone to pick up a little friend, and it took her some time.”
“How long until she arrives?” The otherworldly man seemed to have a tinge of nervousness on his face. Nevertheless, he did his best to keep himself calm.
“Immortal Fairy is estimated to arrive in two minutes,” the simple-looking man replied.
“Great, prepare the flowers. When her immortal boat arrives, the flower road must be laid. This time, I’ll definitely convince Immortal Fairy to become my wife,” the otherworldly man said.
He was a suitor of Immortal Fairy Bie Xue. He’d been making his moves ever since he had heard that Immortal Fairy Bie Xue was looking for a companion.
He had proposed to Immortal Fairy Bie Xue several times, but Immortal Fairy never responded to him.
Later, he asked around, and acquired information that, in the past, Immortal Fairy Bie Xue was interested in the most handsome man in the world of cultivators, ‘True Monarch White’.
After knowing that ‘True Monarch White’ was Immortal Fairy Bie Xue’s type, he had been deliberately cultivating himself to become like ‘True Monarch White’.
Years later, standing in mid-air, he now looked very similar to ‘True Monarch White’.
[The current me is definitely Immortal Fairy Bie Xue’s type. Moreover, I’ve heard that Immortal Fairy Bie Xue never again invited True Monarch White at her ‘Immortal Feast’ since after he rejected her marriage proposal. Therefore, there’s no chance of anything happening between her and True Monarch White. Now, it’s time for me to enter into action and conquer Immortal Fairy Bie Xue,] the otherworldly man silently said to himself.
At this moment, the simple-looking man said, “Young Master, Immortal Fairy Bie Xue’s immortal boat is approaching.”
“Great, lay the flower road and start the music,” the otherworldly man ordered.
In the following moment, numerous flower petals drifted down, forming a flower road in the sky—these petals weren’t actual flower petals, but rather the effect of a magical technique.
Then, melodious music rang out.
The corners of the otherworldly man’s mouth slightly rose, revealing a smile that he believed looked best. Then, he went to welcome the immortal boat.
Song Shuhang, who was driving the immortal boat, was dumbstruck—the sudden emergence of the flower road scared him. He almost thought that there was someone making a surprise attack against the immortal boat.
Then, the music rang. It seemed to have come from the nearby clouds; it was obvious that there was a band hidden in the clouds.
Then, a man with an otherworldly temperament appeared, blocking the immortal boat’s path.
Song Shuhang felt a sense of familiarity when he saw the man, but he clearly knew that this was his first time meeting with this man.
The other party was capable of treading on the air, and so was obviously a cultivator of the Fifth Stage Spiritual Emperor Realm or above. When did the Jiangnan area become so lively that Fifth Stage Spiritual Emperors were suddenly appearing everywhere? After all, Fifth Stage Spiritual Emperors could become elders in medium-sized sects, so they weren’t common in the least.
Just as Song Shuhang was thinking to himself, the man with the otherworldly temperament in front of him suddenly spoke in a deep voice. He said, “Fairy Bie Xue, this is ‘Eternity’. We meet again.”
Song Shuhang turned his head toward the kitchen, and shouted, “Senior Bie Xue, someone’s looking for you.”
“I’m busy, don’t bother me,” Immortal Fairy Bie Xue replied.
“…” Song Shuhang.
Not far from them, Eternity said affectionately, “Fairy Bie Xue, time flows like running water. In the blink of an eye, four years have passed. However, Immortal Fairy, your appearance and your every action were imprinted into my mind, accompanying me during each lonely night.”
Song Shuhang felt goosebumps all over his body. “Senior Bie Xue, how should I respond to him?” Truly sickening, what was he trying to say by saying that he recalled Immortal Fairy Bie Xue during each lonely night?
“Handle it yourself, stop bothering me. Otherwise, don’t blame me for getting angry,” Immortal Fairy Bie Xue said angrily.
Song Shuhang became confused. What do you mean handle it myself? This person is confessing to you! How am I supposed to handle that?
“Four years after we’ve parted, I have a poem for you, Fairy Bie Xue.” At this moment, Eternity coughed, and began to recite. “Ah~ Fairy Bie Xue, if you are the blue sky~ Then I am the white clouds in the sky that embellish it. If you are the bright moon, then I am the stars filling the sky, just like how the stars encircle the moon, I shall serve as a contrast for you. If you are a flower, then I’ll be the hardworking honeybee, flying and dancing around you to collect honey. Ah~ I love you so much!”
What a moron! Song Shuhang said inwardly.
This kind of crappy poem… Where did this guy get it from? Even those junior high students who wrote love letters wouldn’t use such a format.
Just as Song Shuhang was thinking this, the simple-looking man behind Eternity was trying to suppress his laughter, enduring as hard as he could.
After Eternity finished reading the poem, that man rubbed his face, and was finally able to return to his usual simple smile. Afterward, he quietly moved beside Eternity.
“Young Master, Young Master, you read the wrong poem. You should’ve read the [A Poem for Immortal Fairy Bie Xue].” The man smiled innocently.
“Ah?” Eternity’s face showed confusion.
Song Shuhang looked at the simple-looking man, and felt that there was something wrong.
“Didn’t I just read [A Poem for Immortal Fairy Bie Xue]?” Eternity said doubtfully.
“Nope, Young Master. What you read just now was a love letter originally intended for Immortal Fairy Bie Xue,” the simple-looking man said seriously.
“…” Eternity asked, “Then, what about that [A Poem for Immortal Fairy Bie Xue]?”
“It should have been carefully stored away by you Young Master. Nobody has ever seen it. I also don’t know how the poem looks like,” the simple-looking man said.
“F*ck, it doesn’t matter anymore.” Eternity waved his hand, and shouted at the immortal boat, “Immortal Fairy Bie Xue, I love you, I love you so much. Day and night I think of you, please become my wife!”
“No.” Immortal Fairy Bie Xue’s voice rang out from the immortal boat.
Eternity asked, “Did my confession fail again?”
“Yes, Young Master. Your confession failed again… but it doesn’t matter, you can turn your sadness into motivation. Look, your heavenly tribulation of the Sixth Stage Realm is approaching. You should go make preparations for it. If you are able to become a Sixth Stage True Monarch, then your chances of winning over Immortal Fairy will increase greatly,” the simple-looking man said earnestly.
