Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
Bai Jinfei’s palace was not far away. It was located in the bamboo forest.
Soon, Lu Li arrived in front of the palace.
It was a very luxurious palace. The walls were made of pure gold, and the tiles were made of jade.
Under the sunlight, it reflected a dazzling light.
Just as he approached the palace, a beautiful young girl who was guarding the front door of the palace came up to him. She bowed and said delicately, “Hello, Master Lu. Does Master Lu have something to ask of my Young Master?”
She should be Bai Jinfei’s servant.
Lu Li nodded. “Yes, please pass the message.”
“Master Lu, please wait for a moment.”
The girl nodded slightly.
After saying that, she took out a bell from her sleeve and gently shook it 3 times.
Ring. Ring. Ring.
The clear sound of the bell rang in all directions.
Not long after, the red door slowly opened. Bai Jinfei walked out quickly and said with a smile, “Junior Brother Lu, Congratulations!”
“Oh? Why are you so happy?”
Lu Li was stunned.
“You’ve been training hard for the past month. Now that you’ve done your cultivation, you must have made a huge breakthrough in your techniques. This is something to be happy about, right? Eh, Junior Brother, you’ve broken through to the third level of the qi refinement realm? My god! You’re so talented!”
Bai Jinfei exclaimed in surprise.
Why his words sound so strange?
Lu Li frowned slightly and said coldly, “Senior Brother Bai, I only broke through to the third level of the qi refinement realm in a month. My cultivation speed is so slow that I think I’m the worst disciple in the entire Netherworld Ghost sect. Senior Brother, why are you making fun of me? If you don’t welcome me, I’ll just leave.”
After saying that, he turned around and left without any hesitation.
Bai Jinfei took a look and quickly stopped him, blocking his way. He cupped his hands and said with an apologetic smile, “Junior Brother, you misunderstood. How about this, why don’t we enjoy some wine in my place. Let’s enjoy some beautiful ladies and their dances while listening to my explanation?”
Lu Li pondered for a moment and nodded.
He did not care about drinking wine.
The main reason was that Lu Li wanted to enjoy some beautiful ladies and lift his mood.
“Hahaha, Junior Brother. Please, come in.”
Bai Jinfei laughed and led Lu Li into his palace.
Once they entered the palace, Lu Li saw a huge wine pool in front of him.
This wine pool was enormous and thick mist was floating up from the pool.
As Lu Li inhaled, a wave of intoxicating wine fragrance, mixed with a woman’s delicate fragrance immediately entered his lungs.
Faintly, through the thick mist, he could vaguely see some graceful and sexy figures swimming the wine pool.
At this moment, Bai Jinfei who was beside him clapped his hands.
A gust of wind blew over, and the thick mist disappeared.
Immediately, Lu Li saw 20 stunning and sexy ladies in front of him.
They were all gorgeous women. Their clothes were very thin and wet.
When they saw the Lu Li, some of these stunning women covered their faces in embarrassment and dived into the pond like mermaids. Some of them slowly swam toward Lu Li as they tried to use their charming eyes to seduce him.
“Junior Brother, what do you think?”
Bai Jinfei asked with a smile.
The light in his eyes was as sharp as an arrow as he kept staring at Lu Li’s expression.
An ordinary person would have already been excited when they saw such a wonderful scene.
However, Lu Li’s expression was extremely calm. He glanced at the ladies and frowned slightly. “Not bad. However, I have a question.”
“Oh? Junior Brother Lu, is there anything you want to ask me?” Bai Jinfei was a little curious.
“If they secretly pee in the wine pool, do you think others will notice about it? And is the wine in the wine pool still drinkable?”
Lu Li asked solemnly.
Bai Jinfei’s smile froze, and his eyes were wide open.
‘What was the main point of his question?’
‘I just wanted to show you my ladies! How did you come up with such a ridiculous thought?’
The ladies in the pool also bit their lips lightly as their faces full of shame and anger.
The atmosphere became very awkward, and Lu Li also stopped talking.
Bai Jinfei just wanted to use this scene to scare him and create a psychological deterrent. At the same time, he wanted to test Lu Li’s character.
However, that was just a small scene for Lu Li. He was already used to it.
“Ahem, okay. You don’t need to mind these small problems. Junior Brother Lu, please.” Bai Jinfei calmed himself down and said quickly.
Lu Li did not hesitate anymore.
Then, the 2 of them passed through the wine pool and entered the main hall of the palace.
It was a magnificent and grand hall with silver stone pillars and jade carvings. It was exuding an elegant feeling.
“Junior Brother Lu, take a seat,” Bai Jinfei sat on the main seat and said with a smile.
Lu Li did not stand on ceremony and directly sat on the white jade chair on the upper left.
Bai Jinfei clapped his hands again.
Soon, many beautiful ladies came out from behind the beaded curtains of the side doors on both sides of the hall. They were all wearing black and gold embroidered clothes and white veils.
They waved their sleeves as they began to dance gracefully in the hall.
At the same time, the music of the zither and flute sounded from all around. The rhythm was clear and melodious.
Another servant served tea and spirit fruits. Then, she held a jade fan and slowly fanned them.
They were enjoying their life like an emperor.
“Junior Brother, try this tea. It’s made by Young Lady Yun Ying herself. It has a faint fragrance.” Bai Jinfei raised the teacup and said with a smile.
Lu Li raised the teacup as if he wanted to take a sip. Suddenly, he thought of something and put down the teacup. He then asked, “Senior Brother, you haven’t explained what you said just now?”
“Junior Brother, I was really praising you just now! You’re cultivating the Heavenly Blood-Devouring Technique, right? Within a month, you actually cultivated the Heavenly Blood-Devouring Technique to the third level without consuming any spirit blood. Your talent is second to none in the sect!”
Bai Jinfei gave him a thumbs up.
“Senior Brother, how did you know that I didn’t consume any spirit blood?”
Lu Li asked back.
“Hahaha, Junior Brother, you’ve been in your pavilion for almost a month, and you don’t have a lot of money. A bottle of spirit blood can cost a lot of spirit stones. How could you possibly be able to afford it. Therefore, you can only rely on your own hard work to forcefully cultivate it and raise your realm. I’m very impressed! Your cultivation method is even more righteous than the Buddhist and Daoist sects! If it wasn’t for your low level realm, I would’ve suspected that you were a spy sent by the good ones.”
Bai Jinfei praised Lu Li.
Bai Jinfei did not mean it, but Lu Li was offended.
Lu Li’s heart suddenly sank.
His Senior Brother was right. Lu Li was a righteous person and had a compassionate heart. He did not like to cause any troubles. His even used orthodox method to cultivate his demonic techniques. If the Netherworld Ghost sect were to investigate the spies in the future, would he not be the first to be suspected?
At that time, they would only kill him. They would not have any mercy. Hence, Lu Li was extremely anxious!
Bai Jinfei’s words made him realize something!
Lu Li suddenly came to a realization, and a chill ran down his spine.
Luckily, he had discovered it early!
Thus, in the future, he had to pretend to be a member of the Demonic sect!
How to be considered as a member of the Demonic sect?
Lu Li pondered, and he thought of something.
‘Do whatever he wants! He’s the almighty and the strongest!’
‘Those who defy him will die! Those who obey him will die as well!’
Thinking of this, Lu Li leaned back slightly. He leaned on the chair, and smiled at Bai Jinfei. “Senior Brother, you shouldn’t say such things. I was recruited by Demonic Devil. If I was a spy, then you’re saying that our Master was a spy as well?”
When Bai Jinfei heard this, his expression changed slightly, and he said with an awkward smile, “Hahaha, it was just a joke. Junior Brother, please don’t take it to heart.”
“You shouldn’t joke about that. However, you’re right. My cultivation is indeed too slow, so I want to get a bottle of spirit blood now.”
Lu Li did not waste any time and went straight to the point.
“Oh? You want to borrow some spirit stones to buy spirit blood?”
Bai Jinfei’s eyes lit up.
Lu Li took out the Ghost-Raising Tower and placed it on the jade table beside him. “I’m here to sell something.”
“Sell something? Eh, isn’t this the Ghost-Raising Tower that our Master uses when he’s in the qi refinement stage? You want to sell it? Aren’t you afraid that Master will be furious?”
Bai Jinfei was a little surprised.
“Of course not. I don’t dare to sell our Master’s Ghost-Raising Tower. I’m selling the spirit ghost inside.” Lu Li channeled his mana into the Ghost-Raising Tower.
The Ghost-Raising Tower emitted a circle of golden light as it slowly rotated and floated up.
Through the small hole in the tower, one could clearly see that a ball of ghostly qi that was shimmering with golden light. It was shrinking in the corner of the tower.
It was a low-grade spirit ghost.
