Chapter 139 – News of Immortal Mountain
Ye Fan nibbled on the ice cream and looked at the few people in front of him.
Mu Lan had heard a lot of Ye Fan’s deeds, but this was the first time she saw Ye Fan.
Seeing Ye Fan who had a cone in one hand and ice cream in the other, Mu Lan felt that Ye Fan’s image of being tall and majestic in her mind collapsed all of a sudden. This guy, who the elders kept praising for being powerful and talented, she can’t even find the breath of an expert all over his body.
“Young Master Ye, have you really abolished Yang Qianshan?” Mu Lan asked suspiciously.
Ye Fan said suspiciously, “Yang Qianshan, who is that?”
Mu Lianping hurriedly said, “Young Master Ye, it’s the one who injured Young Master Bai during the ancient martial arts exchange meeting.”
Ye Fan ate half of the ice cream in one bite, “You said that old guy, I should have finished him off, he actually dared to injure Yunxi.”
“Unfortunately, Yunxi wouldn’t let me kill someone, saying that I would get into trouble. I should have finished him off then, getting into trouble would be getting into trouble, what’s the big deal?”
Ye Fan clenched his fist, a sound of bones crunching reverberated in the middle of the hall, Mu Lan was scared stiff by Ye Fan’s sudden outburst of aura.
Mu Shiyu frowned, and secretly said: This Young Master Ye is really not an ordinary person. His momentum is not much weaker than that of the Patriarch, but the Patriarch has already entered the eighth level of vital energy!
“Young Master Ye, you are so powerful, is it because you like cultivation very much and have been working hard since you were young?” Mu Li asked.
“I like to cultivate? Cultivation is so hard, I don’t like it at all.” Ye Fan shook his head gloomily.
“You don’t like training, what do you like then Young Master Ye?” Mu Lan rolled her eyes in her heart and said to herself: Ye Fan is really good at pretending, if he didn’t practice hard since he was a child, how could Ye Fan be so powerful!
“What do I like? I like my wife the most!” Ye Fan said intoxicated.
Mu Lianping: “…” Young Master Ye, you really don’t need to show your affection all the time.
“Young Master Ye, you are really affectionate and loyal to Third Young Master Bai!” Mu Shiyu said with a smile.
Ye Fan hummed and said, “That’s what it should be!”
“Young Master Ye, is there something you’re looking for us to do?” Mu Li asked.
“It’s like this, Yunxi said that you guys came over to protect the Bai family members, and you can’t be allowed to do white work, so here are a few contracts, take a look at them.”
Ye Fan handed several documents in his hand to several people.
“Yunxi intends to hire you at an annual salary of five million. In addition, three great recovery pills are paid each year, one great recovery pill is a deposit, and the other two are settled at the end of the year. If the performance is good, there will be bonuses.”
Mu Lianping frowned. Five million yuan was generally less attractive to ancient martial arts practitioners, but the attraction of Great Recovery Pill was even greater.
Mu Lianping had brought back a batch of great recovery pills before, and the clansmen knew the quality of the pills given by Ye Fan.
There were a lot of medicinal pills that were taken back before, but in order to deal with the Yang family’s attack, the patriarch gave all the medicinal pills to everyone. This time, facing the Yang family’s attack, the Mu family was able to win, on the one hand, because the patriarch broke through the eighth level, on the other hand, because of the progress of the clan’s cultivation.
The spirit flame fruit in the Mu family’s inventory has already been exchanged, and it is no longer possible to exchange the spirit flame fruit with Ye Fan for the Great Recovery Pill.
Apart from Spirit Flame Fruit, there seems to be nothing in the Mu family that can make Ye Fan tempted.
With Ye Fan’s personality, it is difficult to obtain benefits from him without giving something to exchange.
A year of protection in exchange for three Great Recovery Pills is definitely not a loss. If the news spread, there should be many ancient martial arts practitioners willing to do it.
“I’m willing to sign,” Mu Lianping said.
Ye Fan nodded and said, “Look at it clearly again, if you don’t do well, you will be fined three times as much.”
Mu Lianping looked at Ye Fan and said suspiciously, “Young Master Ye, is this contract drawn up by Young Master Bai?”
Ye Fan nodded and said, “Yes, that’s right, however, the triple fine was added by me.”
Mu Lianping: “…” He knew it! Young Master Bai is not so harsh.
“What if we don’t do well and can’t pay the fine?” Mu Shiyu asked.
“Then I’ll beat you into a meat pie!” Ye Fan said viciously.
Mu Shiyu: “…”
“Young Master Ye, did you only add one?” Mu Lianping asked.
“Yes, except for this one, the other regulations were drawn up by Yunxi. Although I only added one, what I added is the key!”
Mu Lianping: “…” Fortunately, there is only one.
“Young Master Ye, there are several ancient martial arts forces that secretly formed a sea expedition alliance, do you know?” Mu Shiyu asked tentatively.
Ye Fan shook his head and said, “Not really. How did you know?”
“My Mu family is also in the sea expedition alliance.”
Ye Fan nodded and said, “So that’s how it is! Your Mu family knows the route, huh? There is only a map ah!”
“We roughly know the route. It was calculated by an astrologer hired by everyone for one billion yuan to spend a year of life.”
Ye Fan rolled his eyes and said, “Astrologists are really good at making money! Just talk some nonsense, and you can earn a billion.”
“That’s the successor of a very famous astrologer, the successor of Lai Buyi. If it wasn’t for everyone’s request at the same time, he wouldn’t take,” Mu Lan defended.
“Lai Buyi, who is that?” Ye Fan said in confusion.
“Lai Buyi is a famous Feng Shui master in ancient times. It is rumored that he has the power to fly over the clouds and ride the fog, and to overturn rivers and seas,” Mu Li said.
Ye Fan smiled indifferently and said, “I see, another great dancer.”
Mu Lan: “…”
“Young Master Ye, the world is huge and full of wonders. Although your strength is high, it’s not surprising that other people in this world have some strange abilities.” Mu Li, an admirer of Master Lai, heard Ye Fan’s words and could not help but retort.
Mu Shiyu glared at Mu Li, who was holding his neck, looking resigned.
Mu Li originally thought that Ye Fan would be unhappy when he said that, but he didn’t expect Ye Fan to nod his head in agreement.
“That’s right, although there are a lot of swashbuckling guys in this world, there are still experts. I met one before, and he said that Yunxi and I were a match made in heaven, and he wanted us to get married as soon as possible. It’s so accurate,” Ye Fan said with a bright face.
Mu Lianping rolled his eyes and secretly said: On the streets, you can find any fortune teller, and they can figure this out just by looking at your stickiness to Young Master Bai!
“The astrologer said that the Immortal Mountain is on the back of a mysterious turtle, and the mysterious turtle moves around with the Immortal Mountain on its back, so it is difficult to find it,” Mu Li said.
“Mysterious turtle? Xuanwu?” Ye Fan asked.
“Yes, it is rumored that the four ancient divine beasts, Qinglong (Green Dragon), Bai Ze (White Tiger), Zhuque (Vermillion Bird), and Xuanwu (Black Tortoise) have already soared and left the earth, but the descendants of Xuanwu have stayed and lived in seclusion in the sea for various reasons,” Mu Shiyu said.
Ye Fan squinted his eyes, most of the turtles are slow, but there are also some turtles that are very ferocious.
In the ancient books of the Immortal Cultivation World, a turtle was recorded. This turtle was known as the Immortal Swallowing Turtle. It had cultivation in the Nascent Soul stage. Its back was covered with trees and flowers, floating in the sea, disguised as a floating island. The size of the Immortal Swallowing Turtle was huge. It is in a deep sleep most of the time, and when it wakes up, it eats all the resting cultivators on its back.
Once, the Immortal Swallowing Turtle had been sleeping for two hundred years, and a sect started a sect on its back. As a result, when the turtle woke up, it devoured the entire sect on its back.
“If the turtle is really the descendant of Xuanwu, then it’s better if you can’t find it when you go out to sea. If you find it, you might get eaten by it,” Ye Fan said.
Mu Li blinked and said, “Eaten by it?”
Ye Fan nodded and said, “Yeah! Humans are in the recipes of many beasts. That turtle that can carry the Immortal Mountain everywhere should be very large, I’m afraid it’s already tens of thousands of years old. After so long, it must have entered the Innate stage! Basically, there is no chance of winning against such a big guy?”
“In this case, isn’t it very dangerous for those who go to sea?” Mu Li asked.
Ye Fan blinked, thought about it, and said, “It’s not very dangerous.”
“Didn’t you say that tortoise is dangerous?” Mu Li asked.
Ye Fan grinned, smiled, and said: “The premise is that they have to find the turtle! If they can’t find it, it’s just empty talk! I think they most likely can’t find it.”
Ye Fan hummed and swallowed the whole cone, showing a satisfied look on his face.
Mu Li: “…”
“I heard that Young Master Ye bought that picture of Immortal Mountain painting. Young Master Ye is also interested in the Immortal Mountain?” Mu Lan asked.
Ye Fan nodded and said, “Yes, of course there is interest.”
“Young Master Ye, aren’t you going to find the Immortal Mountain?” Mu Lan asked.
Ye Fan shook his head and said, “Not for now, I’ll wait until the time is ripe.”
“When is the time considered ripe?” Mu Shiyu couldn’t help but ask.
Ye Fan inclined his head, thought about it, and said, “It’s hard to say.”
No matter what, he has to wait until he reaches the ninth level of Qi cultivation. He is only at the seventh level. It is hard to say when he will be able to level up in the future. It mainly depends on the chance.
There are many people who want to cheat medicine pills from him, but when it comes to exchanging, they are so stingy.
With his current cultivation, if he wants to go up, he needs a spiritual ingredient of the same level as the hundreds of years of spirit flame fruit. Most people definitely do not have this level of spiritual ingredient, and it is estimated that few ancient martial artists have it.
Ye Fan groped his chin and thought of the tomb of the zombie princess. Although he heard that the Taoist priests of Mao Mountain had already been there, maybe they didn’t search it clean!
Mu Lan followed Mu Lianping out, “Brother Ping, is this how Young Master Ye always speaks?”
Mu Lianping nodded and said, “Yes! What’s wrong?”
“It always feels a little strange,” Mu Lan said.
Mu Lianping smiled bitterly and said, “Just get used to it.” At the beginning, when he and his grandfather heard Ye Fan boast, he also felt he was weird. Today’s Ye Fan is normal enough.
“Brother Ping, is it the same when Young Master Ye talks to the Bai family?” Mu Li asked.
Mu Lianping nodded and said, “I heard, it’s no different. Before, Old Man Bai angrily used a broom to drive Young Master Ye out.”
“Old Man Bai is so courageous,” Mu Lan couldn’t help saying.
Ye Fan can even kill people from the seventh level of the ancient martial arts. Old Man Bai, a weak old man, dares to swing a broom to Young Master Ye!
“And then what happened?” Mu Li asked.
Mu Lianping shrugged and said, “Young Master Ye took out a peace talisman and put it on Old Man Bai, making him fall asleep.”
“And Old Man Bai can still accept Ye Fan as his grandson-in-law?” Mu Shiyu said in surprise.
Mu Lianping smiled and said, “Young Master Ye likes Young Master Bai so much, so it’s okay even if Old Man Bai disagrees.” Mu Lianping rubbed his nose, embarrassed to say that Young Master Ye didn’t think that Old Man Bai didn’t like him and wanted to chase him away with a broom, but felt that Old Man Bai had gone mad because of senile dementia!
