But it was only a theory.
Jiang Lan didn’t have a choice. For the current him, not choosing was the best choice.
Before long, he returned to the Netherworld Cave.
He already knew the general situation.
These few hundred years actually did not affect him.
The engagement was indeed an engagement, but the wedding was to be held after Ao Longyu became an immortal, which was after she became an adult.
Of course, he also wanted to achieve immortality.
If he failed to become an immortal in the end, then the engagement would be invalid.
The marriage alliance was proposed by Kunlun, and the Dragon Race had no choice but to agree. However, the prerequisite for the marriage between the two parties to take place was proposed by the Dragon Race.
Kunlun had no choice but to accept it.
After all, none of them really wanted to fight.
When the sandpiper and the clam fight, the fisherman benefits.
Everyone wanted a win-win situation.
Because Kunlun had Ao Longyu, the Jade Pool Goddess, the benefits were long-lasting for Kunlun. On the other side, the Dragon Race would also obtaine a lot of other benefits from this deal.
As for Ao Longyu’s own wishes, they were nothing in the face of these two great powers.
Of course, no one dared to push her too hard.
It was not like the Goddess would not die.
“I need to ascend to become an immortal.”
Jiang Lan stood in front of the vegetative egg and muttered to herself.
Only after becoming an immortal would he marry Ao Longyu.
From his cultivation on the surface, he actually had a long time.
Under normal circumstances, six hundred years was the fastest time a normal person could achieve immortality.
As the Jade Pool Goddess, Ao Longyu should need around four to five hundred years.
The Jade Pool’s essence of all living things could provide her with sufficient resources. In addition to her Dragon Race’s talent, it wasn’t too much for her to reach adulthood in four to five hundred years.
As for him, becoming an immortal in seven to eight hundred years was relatively normal, even with his master’s help.
Thus, in theory, he still had five hundred years.
At that time, perhaps he might be able to take the initiative and decide whether to get married or not.
That was unless he couldn’t be invincible in Kunlun.
But Ao Longyu…
Jiang Lan didn’t know much of her, but she didn’t particularly hate her either.
After that, he stopped thinking about it and poured the spirit liquid onto the Udumbara Flower and the vegetative egg.
This was something he continually did over the years.
He was also very happy to be able to raise both the vegetative egg and the Udumbara Flower.
After doing all of this, Jiang Lan began to cultivate. With his epiphany today, his cultivation had become very smooth.
It was much better than before.
The Goddess Diagram was naturally activated by him to aid him in his cultivation.
Early in the morning, before dawn.
Jiang Lan stood up and carried the vegetative egg and Udumbara Flower out of the Netherworld Cave.
He intended to bring them out for a sunbath.
The Udumbara Flower and vegetative egg had stayed in the Netherworld Cave for a long time. He figured out that they needed some exposure to sunlight.
Although the Udumbara Flower looked dispirited, it had not died after so many years. Perhaps the Udumbara Flower was in fact happy.
He was not a Udumbara Flower, so how could he know what the Udumbara Flower was like when it was feeling happy?
A dispirited appearance could also be an expression of joy.
After placing the flower pot in the courtyard, Jiang Lan fought with himself in the mirror world.
After failing, he left the Ninth Summit and headed to the old inn.
He should not be late this time.
He did not have the habit of being late. Previously, he did not know that there was a time to meet.
Furthermore, he had to deal with Feng Ji. That was why he was slightly late.
When Jiang Lan arrived at the inn, he found that the door was still closed.
The sun was not too bright at the moment.
“I can’t believe the innkeeper hasn’t opened the door.”
Jiang Lan was a bit surprised, but he didn’t think too much about it. He quietly stood at the entrance, waiting for the inn to open.
But after waiting for a while, footsteps came from behind.
The footsteps were very light.
Out of caution, Jiang Lan turned around and saw that it was a little girl.
She was wearing a blue and white outfit with a high ponytail. She had bright eyes and white teeth and looked quite pretty.
However, her eyes were slightly red, as if she had been crying for a long time.
Jiang Lan remembered that he had seen this little girl somewhere before.
However, he didn’t think too much about it. After all, they didn’t really know each other.
He had examined her carefully as he wanted to be vigilant and to ensure his own safety.
Then, he continued to wait at the door.
However, not long after he turned around, he saw that the little girl had also come to the door, standing right opposite him.
Xiao Yu took out a recording bead and a book and gave them to Jiang Lan with reddened eyes.
Jiang Lan took a glance and expressed his confusion.
He never said no to what was supposed to be his.
But he did not like to be given things he did not deserve.
That was unless the thing was given by his master.
In the future, he would fulfill his duty and perform to his master’s expectations in return.
He would take over the Ninth Summit and guard the entrance to the Netherworld.
After which, he would find the next successor.
From then on, he could roam the Grand Desolate World freely.
That was if he was not married.
“Thirty years ago.” Xiao Yu lifted her head and explained to Jiang Lan.
“Junior Brother, you gave me a recording Dharma treasure. As repayment, these are for you. However, I have never seen Junior Brother leave the mountain in the past thirty years. Thus, I’ve waited until now to give these to you. ”
Jiang Lan managed to recall the affair after the other party told him about the details.
At that time, his mind was fully on Feng Ji, so he didn’t pay much attention to the recording Dharma treasure.
However, he realized that this Senior Sister of his was quite stubborn.
“Thank you, Senior Sister.”
Jiang Lan took the bead and the book.
He looked at them briefly. The bead was an empty recording Dharma treasure, and the book was a cultivation technique called Thousand Thunder Sutra. There was also a spell inside it called Heavenly Thunder Descent.
The cultivation technique was written using normal language while Heavenly Thunder Descent was written in two languages.
One was the normal language, while the other was the Dragon Language.
He had obtained this spell from signing in before. It seemed that he could use it openly in the future from now on.
Kunlun should also have this spell but it was just that he had yet to notice it.
There were so many books and spells in the Ninth Summit, it was impossible for him to have read all of them.
Furthermore, the resources in Kunlun were on a whole different level when compared to the resources in the Ninth Summit.
Xiao Yu watched as Jiang Lan kept the items and didn’t say anything else.
The two of them stood quietly at the door, waiting for the door to open.
It was unusually quiet.
Jiang Lan was a bit surprised. He originally thought that this Senior Sister would leave after delivering the goods.
“When the boss mentioned ‘you guys’ yesterday, he wasn’t referring to one of the eight people but to Senior Sister Xiao Yu?” Jiang Lan guessed.
However, there was no need to think too much about it.
Jiang Lan came here because on the surface, his cultivation was about to break through to the Essence Soul Realm. His master was the one who had asked him to come.
Meanwhile, he himself wished to obtain something that could help him achieve immortality.
He was very close to becoming an immortal. He was currently a mid-stage Void Refinement cultivator.
The door opened.
“You guys are here?” The innkeeper saw Jiang Lan and Xiao Yu immediately after opening the doors.
“Sorry for disturbing you, Senior.”
Jiang Lan and Xiao Yu said in unison.
“You guys are quite tacit.” The innkeeper said casually.
“The price of the wines is at the counter. Take a look for yourselves. There is no standard price for the tea and peanuts. It depends on whether the customer is willing to pay.” The innkeeper walked out of the inn with the basket on his back and said.
“You guys should barely be able to handle it in the morning. By the way, remember to clean up. I’ll tell you two more details when I get back in the afternoon. ”
After speaking, Jiang Lan and Xiao Yu watched as the boss left the inn.
After that, they walked into the inn. However, the inn was a little messy at the moment. There were many wine bottles and peanuts on the ground. It seemed like someone had been drinking here for the entire night.
Xiao Yu did not know what to do.
Jiang Lan took a glance and knew that this Senior Sister of his had never done such a thing.
“I will clean up the place. Senior Sister can go check the price of the wine first so that you can deal with the customers who are buying the wine later,” Jiang Lan said softly.
