Zhou Shu looked at the person standing in front of him and was somewhat surprised.
He wasn’t familiar with this person, but he had quite an impression of him.
It was the waiter from the old wine tavern.
“We are not buying wine now. We don’t need to care about you,” Lu Qian said.
The cultivation of a perfected Foundation Establishment cultivator appeared faintly, as if she wanted to exert pressure on Jiang Lan.
Yes, standing in front of them was Jiang Lan.
He did not know the others. If he spoke to them rashly, it would easily cause unnecessary conflict.
Since he had met with the two of them before, there shouldn’t be much of a problem.
However, from the tone of these two people, their resentment towards him due to the wine purchasing incident was still there.
It was mostly because of Xiao Yu.
“I would like to ask the two of you for a favor,” Jiang Lan said softly.
“We’re not free. Don’t block us,” Lu Qian said directly.
“Junior Sister, wait.” Zhou Shu looked at Jiang Lan and said.
“I’m in a good mood after advancing to the Golden Core Realm today. Tell me what you need first. I’ll see if I can help.”
Lu Qian wasn’t pleased, but she didn’t say anything. She was a nobody anyway. She couldn’t go against Zhou Shu’s opinion.
“I haven’t been out for a long time. I have no money on me. I want to use a spirit stone to exchange for five copper coins.” Jiang Lan looked at the two of them and said calmly.
If they were unwilling, he would not say anything more.
He could just change to another one.
“I don’t have copper coins, but I do have gold. Here you go.” Zhou Shu threw a piece of gold to Jiang Lan.
“I am pretty happy today so I shall reward you with a piece of gold, you’re welcome.”
Jiang Lan, who was holding the gold, fell silent and asked again.
“Do you have any silver?”
“Your appetite isn’t small.” As he spoke, Zhou Shu gave Jiang Lan some silver pieces.
Then, he decided to leave.
“I’ll treat it as doing a good deed today.”
“Be more polite next time you see us.” Lu Qian said to Jiang Lan before leaving with Zhou Shu.
However, just as they were about to leave, they were stopped by Jiang Lan again.
Then, he placed a spirit stone in Zhou Shu’s hand and said softly,
“Here is your spirit stone.”
Jiang Lan then turned around and left.
Zhou Shu looked at Jiang Lan who left and said in surprise.
“What’s with this person? He didn’t even want free gold? ”
“We seem to have made a profit,” said Lu Qian.
“Then we were tipped by him? I feel insulted.”
The two of them were a bit angry, but they still had things to do today, so they didn’t want to lower themselves to Jiang Lan’s level.
And then they went elsewhere.
“I heard that a victor is about to be decided between the Dragon Race and the Demon Race. I wonder if it will affect us. If it’s going to affect us negatively, we’ll be doomed.”
“I don’t know, but it was a shame to have missed that ceremony. I’ve never even seen the Goddess.”
“Those who went out on missions all felt that it had been a pity. However, we were too weak back then. We might not be able to see them even if we didn’t go out.”
“True. Maybe we’ll get a chance to meet again.”
The two of them chatted and gradually left.
Jiang Lan immediately returned to the place which sold candied fruits and successfully bought two sticks of candied fruits.
After placing the candied fruits in the red gourd, he decided to also buy something for his master.
After walking around, he did not find anything suitable.
In the end, he decided to buy a bottle of good wine for his master.
As well as another two pounds of beef with soy sauce.
At the old wine tavern.
The youth cleaned the floor and said.
“Grandfather, I heard that the Heavenly Human Race and the Heavenly Feather Phoenix Race are fighting. Is that true?”
“It’s just a small fight. They will not fight to death.” The boss prepared the good wine in his hand and said.
“Can I go over and take a look?” The youth tried to ask.
“To go and die?” The boss said without looking up.
“I am now extremely strong, even a Human Immortal might not be able to do anything to me.” The youth said.
The boss looked up at the youth and smiled.
“You are still at the bottom of the Grand Desolate World. You are useless even as cannon fodder. You can gain freedom when you complete the previous agreement.”
After saying that, the boss lowered his head and continued to prepare his good wine.
The young man wanted to say something, but before he could say anything, the old man cut him off.
“The little girl from the Heavenly Feather Phoenix Race doesn’t fancy you. Don’t think too much about it.”
The youth was confused.
He was not convinced. After all, once he entered Big Brother’s mind, his grandpa would not stop him from doing whatever he wanted.
Just as the youth was thinking about how to enter Jiang Lan’s mind, he saw Jiang Lan appear at the entrance.
Yes, Jiang Lan had returned.
It had been two months since he had gone shopping in Flat Sky City.
The candied fruits were sealed by his spell. It would not spoil.
After greeting the youth, Jiang Lan came to the counter.
“Boss, a pot of good wine.”
He then paid with a spirit stone.
“Are you here for the spiritual inn?” The shop owner collected the spirit stone and asked calmly.
“I hope Boss can give me some pointers.” Jiang Lan bowed respectfully.
“Here’s your wine.” The boss pushed a pot of good wine to Jiang Lan.
Then, he took out a book and handed it over.
“There’s a price to be paid for making an old man like me guide you. This thing doesn’t seem like much, but you can’t pay the price. I have asked your master to pay for it.
Don’t worry, it won’t affect your master much. I found him the day after you left. It is already paid for.”
Jiang Lan was a little surprised, but he still accepted the book.
After thanking him, Jiang Lan turned around and left.
He had to go back and ask his master what price he had paid.
Next time, he couldn’t come to the inn owner to ask for guidance again. Even if he did, he had to make things clear. He would be the one who paid the price.
Having grown up, he could handle many things by himself.
He did not need to tire his master out.
Jiang Lan left. The youth didn’t have time to prepare the peanuts.
“Grandpa, I think I’ll be able to enter Big Brother’s mind in another two years. When the time comes, ask him to come to the shop,” said the youth suddenly.
The boss looked at the young man meaningfully.
His grandson’s courage was commendable.
Then, he looked at Jiang Lan who had left.
“His essence, energy, and spirit are different now. This training must have been fruitful for him. Every time I see him, I feel like he’s improved by a lot. I wonder what future accomplishments he will have.”
After leaving the inn, Jiang Lan headed straight for the Ninth Summit.
He had been away for more than four years.
It had been a long time.
Xiao Yu’s Dragon Slaying Sword’ Sword Intent should have run out too. He did not know if it would affect her.
He had intended to return within three years, but it was a pity that he was a year late.
There were no obstacles along the way. Jiang Lan returned to the Ninth Summit and arrived before the peach forest.
He walked in step by step. He planned to go back and take a look at the courtyard before meeting his master. Then, he would inform Xiao Yu that he was back.
However, when he arrived near the courtyard.
He realized that he had encountered the blooming season.
The surrounding flowers began to bloom.
Soon, he saw a beautiful figure squatting among the flowers.
She was dressed in a blue and white outfit with a simple high ponytail, looking delicate and pretty.
Soon, Xiao Yu turned to look at him.
The moment she saw Jiang Lan, she smiled.
Under the sunlight, her smile looked very lovely.
“The flowers in the courtyard are going to bloom. I thought that they were waiting for the right time to arrive before they fully bloomed. I didn’t expect that they were actually waiting for your return. ”
Flowers bloomed in the courtyard, and a refreshing fragrance wafted through the air.
A gentle breeze stirred the flowers and small droplets of raindrops fell from the tip of the petals. Even Jiang Lan’s state of mind was affected.
He looked at Xiao Yu with a smile and said.
“Senior Sister, long time no see.”
