"Earth Embryo Level, 100 years old. God Wheel Level, 150 years old. These numbers are rough estimates. Some people who have reached God Wheel Level are able to live to 160 years old as well, " the empress said casually.
Following which, she looked at Ren Baqian and asked, "Are you worried?"
"I'm worried that I can't be by Your Majesty's side for too long," Ren Baqian smiled and replied.
The empress turned silent. After a while, she replied, "I'm not too sure about [Ruyi Visualization], but I don't think it differs too much from ordinary Dayao martial arts. Things will become clearer once you have attained Earth Embryo Level and obtain full control of your body. Anyway, you don't need to think too much about this. Even though there aren't many artifacts that can extend life in this world, they still can be found."
"But everyone in the court seems so young," Ren Baqian continued.
This fact puzzled Ren Baqian. If a person who had attained Kismet Heaven could live up to 140 years old, there should still be some officials who were born in the founding years of Dayao in the court now. However, most of the officials he saw were younger than fifty years old. There were extremely few elderly officials like the Great Elder and the Junior Elder. They should also be younger than eighty years old.
"They left fifty years ago. The first emperor of Dayao, a few officials, and a few warriors that fought during the founding years of Dayao," the empress explained.
"Where have they gone?" Ren Baqian asked.
"I don't know, no one knows. I guess they might have gone to Sixty Thousand Mountains. If I can attain Longevity Heaven, I might be able to find out where have they gone," the empress continued.
"Longevity Heaven huh," Ren Baqian thought to himself. Longevity Heaven allowed one to live to the age of three hundred years old, which would be nine hundred years old on Earth.
He did not know how long he could live.
However, he knew he didn't need to be so pessimistic. That was because he was travelling between the two worlds. If he spent six days here, twelve days on Earth would pass. If he spent ten years here, twenty years on Earth would pass. By then, the technology on Earth would be much more advanced. There might even be some technologies that could extend life.
If he spent another thirty years here, sixty years on Earth would have passed. By then, the technological level on Earth would reach unprecedented heights.
When that day arrived, he might be able to extend his life by a few hundred years or clone his own body.
Therefore, there was no need for him to think much on it right now. All he needed to do was to train hard and survive.
However, by the time he was forty-three years old, Wannian would be sixty years old on Earth.
His parents would be approximately ninety years old.
He felt pity for them. He hoped that the technologies on Earth could develop faster.
"Your Majesty, I obtained this at Mount Liucui. I have no use for it, so I decided to bring it back and gift it to you." Ren Baqian took out a small pouch and passed it to the empress.
The empress took it with surprise. She opened it and realized there was a slightly withered, small white-colored flower.
Beneath the flower, there was the colorful sand.
"This flower was pure and sparkling when I saw it that day. Even though it was grown in the mountain, it still looked exceptionally extraordinary. Therefore, I feel that it suits you very well. It's a pity that it has withered slightly after so many days," Ren Baqian spoke with a slight tinge of regret.
The corner of the empress's mouth curled up slightly. She took out the white-colored flower from the pouch, placed it before her face and sniffed it. Then, she cast a glance at Ren Baqian and said smilingly, "I have this magnolia in my imperial garden."
With a look of surprise on his face, Ren Baqian said, "From the flower's unrivalled charm, I still thought it was the king of all flowers and that it must be extremely rare."
However, right now, there was a white-colored flower fluttering in the wind only ten meters ahead of him.
The empress did not care about Ren Baqian's cheap trick. She played with flower for a while before putting it back into the pouch.
"You're quite fortunate to find cloud crystals," the empress said.
"It's dropped from the sky," Ren Baqian smiled and replied. Then, he told the empress about how the flower hawk wanted to seize him and how the cloud crystals were found after Teng Ji slashed open the flower hawk's body. However, he did not tell her that he was drenched in blood and innards as it was far too disgusting.
"You have to work harder on your cultivation, otherwise, you will always be in danger," the empress said.
Ren Baqian nodded his head. He also knew what he should he do. Recently, his strength had increased slightly again. He now had the strength of someone who weighed 73 kilograms. He had completely absorbed the effects of that medicinal bath.
"Go back and cultivate first. If it weren't for this trip, you would be having your third medicinal bath," the empress said, "Come and have dinner with me at Yangxin Palace after you have finished your cultivation."
"I shall take my leave." Ren Baqian stood up, gave a bow, and left the palace. Later, he wanted to take the medicinal bath and properly store all the TNT.
He had initially been prepared to use the TNT on the mines. However, since he did not use them, he brought them back.
If the 40 kg of TNT accidentally came into contact with fire, they would blow up Pingle Park and the residences around it entirely.
There were three rooms in Pingle Park. Usually, two of the rooms were for palace maids. However, since Ren Baqian did not have any palace maids, those two rooms were empty.
His belongings had been sent to his room. He brought the TNT to the room next door and found a spot to keep them. Then, he asked someone to prepare the medicinal bath for him.
After his cultivation session in the medicinal bath had ended, even though he was still tired, he felt much better than the previous session. At least he did not feel so worn out that he had to lie on the bed and sleep immediately.
Looking at the time, Ren Baqian sat on the chair and took a nap. After an hour, he realized the sky was about to darken. He quickly rushed to Yangxin Palace to find the empress.
The empress was lying on a couch reading a book. Not far away from the wooden couch, there was a table that had a hotpot, some sliced meat, and vegetables on it.
"Your Majesty, sorry for being late," Ren Baqian apologized.
"It's alright," the empress waved her hand and replied.
Following which, Ren Baqian put the base ingredients into the hotpot and added some firewood to the fire.
Halfway through the meal, when Ren Baqian looked at the empress eating silently with her head lowered, he thought of the day where the empress was sitting at the sofa watching news while he was making breakfast. His heart jolted as he said, "Your Majesty, do you want to visit Earth with me again?"
This time was different from the last time. Last time around, he accidentally bought the empress to Earth. This time around, he took the initiative to invite her there.
It was significantly different this time around.
This also showed that Ren Baqian had no intention to hide anything.
Actually, there was no need for him to hide anything now.
What was the point of hiding anything when the empress had already been to Earth before?
When the empress heard Ren Baqian's words, she raised her head to look at him and nodded.
Even though she looked very calm on the surface, she actually felt joy deep down. And because of this, she looked even calmer.
After finishing her meal, the empress summoned Xin Zhe and said, "I will be away for one day. Don't worry, if anyone wants to see me, tell them I'm in the middle of a training and I won't be seeing anyone."
"Your Majesty, let me follow you," Xin Zhe quickly said.
"Do you think anyone in this world can hurt me?" The empress waved her hand and dismissed Xin Zhe.
Even though Xin Zhe was unwilling to let empress go somewhere alone, she couldn't disobey her, and all she could do was leave the palace hall.
