Jiang Lan looked at the few people who entered and felt a little puzzled.
If what these people said was true, then it was extremely likely that the Heavenly Human Race had sent people here because of Feng Ji’s death.
Then, he felt that it was impossible that this was the case.
“They have come too quickly. Feng Ji had just died yesterday. How could they know so quickly? Even if they have discovered his death, it would take more than a day for them to come here from the Central Plains. ”
Kunlun was located in the Western Wasteland, extremely far from where the Heavenly Human Race was at.
Jiang Lan had some guesses.
The other party might not have known that Feng Ji was dead. They might have come here because of something else.
However, there was also a high chance they were here for him.
He might have overestimated himself. However, when it came to danger, he could not take any chances. He had to be more careful.
As for the demons, their intentions probably had nothing to do with him.
But now that Ao Longyu was engaged to him and the Dragon Race was at war with the Demon Race.
He could also have become part of this conflict unknowingly.
“Looks like getting engaged to Senior Sister Ao is really troublesome.”
Jiang Lan felt a little helpless, but since he had promised his master, he couldn’t go back on his word now.
And… the weak him couldn’t say no.
Xiao Yu stood on the chair and looked at the person.
This time, there were four people, two men and two women.
“Eh, it’s someone else?”
One of the female cultivators looked at Xiao Yu in surprise.
This was because Xiao Yu was very cute.
Of course, these people didn’t dare act impudently at all. Being cute didn’t mean that the other party was weak. None of the people in the inn were weak.
That youth previously was even more so.
The current young lady should be the same.
If one looked normal and had a normal height, then perhaps that person might be weak.
Like Jiang Lan who was beside Xiao Yu.
“We’re here to take Senior Brother Lu Jian’s good wine. This is his token.”
A male disciple took out a teacup carved from wood.
Xiao Yu looked at the teacup but did not say anything. Instead, she handed the wine over and kept the teacup.
That person thanked him and left with the others.
“Speaking of which, why did the employees of the inn change?”
They were somewhat amazed when they went out.
“I seem to have heard from some Senior Brothers that the inn was recruiting weaker disciples from the various summits. I wonder if that’s true.”
“If that’s true, then the two in there—”
“Shh, what if it’s fake news?”
They didn’t say anything else and quickly left.
Jiang Lan watched these people leave without feeling anything.
He was indeed the Ninth Summit’s worst disciple. His master had said the same thing about him previously.
Thirty years ago, he still thought of himself as the most outstanding disciple.
Times have indeed changed.
Xiao Yu did not care. She did not know what these people were talking about either.
She just happened to come here on that day and drank a cup of tea that made her cry for a while. Then, she was asked to stay and help.
This was agreed upon by her master.
At noon, Jiang Lan finally felt no more pain. He informed Xiao Yu and walked to the backyard.
Firstly, he wanted to see if the Pixiu had returned.
Secondly, he wanted to see if he could sign in in the backyard.
He had yet to sign in today.
The inn was not a simple place. Although it did not have a path of the Great Dao, the things he would receive by signing in here should not be bad.
Especially since his master had asked him to come here to seek a breakthrough opportunity.
Even though it was just for a breakthrough to the Essence Soul Realm, Jiang Lan’s actual situation was slightly different. Perhaps he might even gain the chance to achieve immortality.
He wasn’t worried about reaching the perfected Void Refinement Realm. What he was truly worried about was the final barrier to becoming an immortal.
He needed to enter the void to search for the gate to immortality, open it, and undergo a tribulation.
Jiang Lan needed to make sufficient preparations, but he had yet to get something that would aid him in achieving immortality through signing in.
He had prepared some array formations and healing pills for the tribulation.
Perhaps the tribulation part was the easiest for him.
When he arrived at the backyard, Jiang Lan carefully observed it. There was a small stream here, as well as a rather large warehouse and farmland.
There was a tree at the end of the field.
It was a willow tree.
Its falling branches swayed with the wind.
Jiang Lan stood in front of the willow tree. His heart was calm, and he felt as if the air here was cleaner.
“System, I will sign in here.”
[Signed in successfully. Congratulations to the host for obtaining the gift of the Great Dao. You have obtained the Heavenly Treasure Dao Comprehension Tea.]
Dao Comprehension Tea: Refined from the leaves of a tea tree that takes root in the paths of the Great Dao. Drink it and you will be blessed. It will help you comprehend the Dao, facilitate your cultivation, and allow you to comprehend the world.
Dao Comprehension Tea?
Jiang Lan was surprised.
He actually managed to get Dao Comprehension Tea here.
“Could this willow tree be a Dao Comprehension Tea Tree?”
Jiang Lan suddenly had some guesses.
However, he felt that this was not the case. There were no paths of the Great Dao here.
Besides, willow trees were not tea trees.
Jiang Lan didn’t linger any longer and turned around to leave.
The Dao Comprehension Tea’s effect should be around the same as that of the Daoist Scripture. Although it could not compare at all, it should be of some help when he was learning.
For example, when he was studying formations and learning the Kunlun spell techniques.
It was also useful for cultivation.
“Based on the introduction, it doesn’t seem to be of much use for my immortal ascension. At most, it can help a bit when I look for the gate of immortality.”
Jiang Lan had no regrets.
It was good enough for him to find something that could aid him in becoming an immortal.
This sort of thing could not be rushed.
The Creation of Heaven and Earth could only be chanced upon by luck.
The Great Dao had never bestowed the same item on him.
He should be patient and wait a little longer.
If he still couldn’t get what he needed, he would take a trip to other important places in Kunlun.
When he returned to the inn, the innkeeper had already returned.
The innkeeper stood at the counter, preparing some good wine.
“What did you see in the backyard?” The innkeeper looked up at Jiang Lan and asked casually.
“A willow tree,” Jiang Lan answered truthfully.
The innkeeper hadn’t said that he couldn’t go to the backyard, so he probably hadn’t offended him.
The innkeeper did not mind and said to Xiao Yu.
“Go and check out the backyard.”
Xiao Yu nodded and walked towards the backyard.
Jiang Lan came to the counter and placed the wine cup properly.
“Why are you suddenly short of people?” Jiang Lan was curious.
“You want to ask where that brat went?” The innkeeper placed a piece of ice in the wine and asked Jiang Lan.
Jiang Lan nodded.
He didn’t hate that youth.
So he wanted to ask about his whereabouts.
“He went into seclusion.” The innkeeper looked a little helpless.
Jiang Lan could understand this. He often went into seclusion himself, and time passed very easily inside.
Years and decades passed in the blink of an eye.
He was already like this as an ordinary person, let alone a youth with Qiong Qi’s influence.
The other party had plenty of time.
A hundred years had not changed anything for him.
At this moment, Xiao Yu returned.
“What did you see?” The innkeeper asked.
Xiaoyu looked at Jiang Lan hesitantly.
“I didn’t see the willow tree, but I did see a spirit spring.”
“Alright, you two can go back now. There are new things to do tomorrow. Remember not to be late.” The innkeeper smiled and said.
After a pause, he said.
“By the way, bring some peanuts back as your salary for today.”
Jiang Lan and Xiao Yu had no objections. They each took some peanuts and left.
After the two of them left, the innkeeper, who had his head lowered, looked up.
“Quite an interesting pair.”
Then, the innkeeper looked at the wine glasses, wine bottles and teacups.
“They’re all safe and sound. I wonder if it was done by one of them or the both of them.”
The innkeeper then smiled.
“We’ll find out tomorrow.”
