Evil Emperor's Wild Consort - chapter-439
At an inconspicuous stall, an old man with his eyes closed stayed
unmoving like a mountain. He didn’t even bother to look at the women who
were standing in front of his stall.
“Excuse me, sir,” A woman next to Rongyue suppressed her anger and said,
“We are from the Medicine Order and this is the disciple of our Order
Master. Her name is Rongyue and she is also the number one genius in the
Medicine Order. Can you sell this fruit to us?”
When she finished speaking, the old man finally opened his eyes. He
lifted his eyelids and said, “It’s not for sale!”
The woman’s face changed greatly and her every feature overflowed with
rage. Just as she was about to vent her great irritation, a luxurious and
jade-white hand reached out to her, preventing her impulses.
Only then did the woman calm down.
No matter the circumstances, this was still a part of Cloud City and not
any other place. Not everything that the Medicine Order fancies can be
fought over at will.
But this old man certainly does not know what’s good for him, she
thought, junior sister Rongyue merely wished to have this holy spirit
fruit out of the kindness of her own heart yet he’s acting so
“Elder Jiu, would you be willing to trade this holy spirit fruit with me?
I, Rongyue, shall agree to whatever you wish.”
Hearing the way Rongyue had just addressed the man, the expression on the
woman’s face (which was initially full of contempt with the intention to
teach the old man a lesson) changed greatly. She bit her lips forcefully
and kept her mouth shut.
It would seem that this inconspicuous-looking old man was actually Elder
Jiu from the Courts of Hell! If she were to ever offend the Courts of
Hell, not even the Order Master can save her!
“Little girl, you’re certainly very sharp. You actually recognized this
feeble old man,” The old man smiled coldly and his yellow robes fluttered
gently in the wind. His eyes were filled with an icy chill, “Since you
were able to recognize me, little girl, then I’ll give you a chance! You
want this holy spirit fruit? It’s very simple. Show me something that
will move my heart!”
Rongyue frowned with indifference. Honestly, she had received the news
that the holy spirit fruit would make an appearance in the trade fair but
she certainly had not expected that Elder Jiu of the Courts of Hell would
be the one to put it on display!
The Courts of Hell is part of the Three Great Authorities and has had
strained relations with the Immortal Realm in the past. The Medicine
Order, however, has been trying to establish a good rapport with the
Immortal Realm. It would seem that obtaining the holy spirit fruit would
be no easy feat at this time.
“Elder Jiu, perhaps you could name an object? As long as it is of the
same value as the holy spirit fruit, I shall obtain it for you no matter
Elder Jiu smiled coldly, “I’ve heard that the Medicine Order dedicates
itself to the progress of medicinal skills. Coincidentally, I’ve been
suffering from an old affliction. If you are able to cure me of my
illness, then this holy spirit fruit shall belong to you.”
“Elder Jiu, are you joking with me?” Rongyue smiled and said, “The
previous Order Master had given you his diagnosis years ago. Your veins
are blocked, Elder Jiu and as a result, no power can flow into your
system. If even the old Order Master was unable to cure you, how could I
possibly stand a chance?”
“If you can’t do it, then you can get out of the way! Don’t get in the
way of my trade with other people!” Elder Jiu grew extremely irritated
upon hearing her answer. Based on his position as an elder of the Courts
of Hell, the reason why he had joined the trade fair was to use the holy
spirit fruit to entice a strong cultivator to heal his affliction.
If I were to remain in this state, unable to break through, my lifespan
might end in just two years! He thought.
For in the current state of the mainland, they can not afford to lose
anymore Martial Emperors. Otherwise, they will no longer be able to
resist the infiltration of the demonic spirits.
Rongyue was angered by Elder Jiu’s words. She was hindered by the
latter’s respected position so she forcibly suppressed her fury and
quietly stood aside, smiling coldly at the passers-by in the plaza.
I’d certainly like to see if anyone can actually cure his affliction! She
