Chapter 213 – The Regeneration Jade Lotus
Ye Xiao was also lost in thoughts when he heard Bing Xin-Yue. It took him a while to get back to his mind and he said, “In fact it belongs to you. So of course you can. I will give it back to you.”
And then he flipped his hand and a crystal white lotus appeared. The stem of the lotus was still black, yet the flower was already snow white.
It looked like it would never get stained.
Even the stamen was white.
“It turns out to be such a high-quality Regeneration Jade Lotus. That is so unbelievable…” Bing Xin-Yu’s eyes lit up and she hurriedly stood up. She walked close to Ye Xiao staring at the lotus obsessively. She couldn’t even contain the excitement inside her heart.
“When Chu-Chu got this Regeneration Ink Lotus, she told me that… she had carved two words on the stem by using the special method of our sect…”
Ye Xiao was stunned and said, “Two words? How come I never know it?”
Bing Xin-Yue smiled and reached her hand to the stem of that Regeneration Jade Lotus. While doing that, her hand emitted a stream of energy that had a sense of cold power. She poured it to the stem, and after a while, two words appeared on it.
“It is that Regeneration Ink Lotus that she gave you!” Bing Xin-Yue took a breath of relief. She closed her eyes and two lines of tears were going down along her cheeks from her eyes. She said, “My master… She finally has hope…”
Ye Xiao was a bit annoyed hearing about it though. [What the hell is she talking about? Who the hell does she think she is! Would I even think about replacing their stupid Regeneration Ink Lotus with a Regeneration Jade Lotus?!]
When he saw Bing Xin-Yue weep, he was, however, moved by the true emotions between them. He sighed.
The Misty Cloud Palace truly had a tough time. What those people did deserved everybody’s respect.
They would actually rather die to keep the others alive.
No matter if they were doing it for their masters or disciples, they still gave their lives out anyway.
Every single person in their sect did this…
He thought that there might be less men who could do what they were doing.
Such ladies were truly heroic and admiring. The truth was that all their people followed the same rule doing it. How admirable!
“Master Feng, from the moment you started to develop the Regeneration Ink Lotus till it became the Regeneration Jade Lotus, it has only been about a month. Is it right?” Bing Xin-Yue looked at Ye Xiao with shiny eyes.
“Yes, it is indeed…” Ye Xiao thought for a while and said, “I, Feng, always value promises the most. Since I had promised, I naturally would try my best to keep it. I know that it is the only thing that can save your lives. So surely, I should do my best on it. Although it was just one Regeneration Ink Lotus, I have spent all my precious resources on it. I made it eventually, yet it truly had costed me way too much.”
He sighed, “Well luckily, that Regeneration Ink Lotus was quite close to upgrading. It only needed one tiny step. Otherwise, I wouldn’t have done it.”
“Resources? Too much? How come?” Bing Xin-Yue asked.
“The resources I was talking included a massive amount of spiritual jades and many other treasures… And there were some special minerals too. I used all these materials to set a special array that could absorb spiritual energies. And I pour some Rootless Spring Water under the lotus and put it right at the confluence of all the spiritual energy streams in the world…”
Ye Xiao continued, “Well, even though I have done whatever I can and spent everything I have, I still couldn’t make the entire lotus turn into white color. It should be a failure. I feel ashamed that I couldn’t have a perfect outcome.”
Bing Xin-Yue smiled softly and said, “Master Feng, you are being too humble on this. It is already extremely fast. I am already shocked by seeing such a result. Maybe you don’t understand the true problem in this thing. In fact, even if the Regeneration Saint Garden still exists in a good condition, it will still take us fifty years to develop a Regeneration Ink Lotus into a Regeneration Jade Lotus.”
She smiled bitterly and continued, “To develop the Regeneration Jade Lotus into a Renascence Jade Lotus, it will take us five hundred years. And you, you actually just spent a month to turn a Regeneration Ink Lotus into a high-quality Regeneration Jade Lotus. I think as long as we do it right, it will just take us a short period of time to turn it into a Renascence Jade Lotus. If you really feel ashamed about it, we, the Misty Cloud Palace, which has been studying it for generations after generations, should be much more ashamed than you!”
“Fifty years? Five hundred?” Ye Xiao was shocked.
He felt regret inside his mind.
[Oh… It turns out I still have made it too short… I should have said something much longer than one month.
I am not trying to ask for more praise or reward. In fact, I just don’t want to be captured and become their lotus developing specialist…
In fact, even if he wanted to say a longer time than one month, he couldn’t! It had only been more than a month since he left Wen-Ren Chu-Chu the last time. No matter what he wanted to make up, he couldn’t make the time longer than one month!
“I wonder… How long would it take if Master Feng begin to work on developing this Regeneration Jade Lotus into a Renascence Jade Lotus?” Bing Xin-Yue asked with expectations.
“There are not enough materials for me to get to it though.” Ye Xiao smiled and said.
“Not enough materials…” Bing Xin-Yue murmured and asked, “What you said about lacking materials, you mean in the Land of Han-Yang, right? It doesn’t include our materials, right? That means the Land of Han-Yang doesn’t have enough materials for you to do it. However, we may have enough materials for you to do it, right?”
“That’s right.” Ye Xiao nodded.
“What if we have enough materials?” Bing Xin-Yue kept asking.
“If we have enough materials… If there will be no accident…” Ye Xiao thought for a while and said, “It will take me three to five years to develop a lotus about this size!”
“Three to five years…” Bing Xin-Yue’s face turned dark and she spoke loudly.
“Hmm. Three to five years are necessary. This Regeneration Jade Lotus has been developed by me. Although it is already high quality, it still needs more careful development to become totally white. To upgrade into a Renascence Jade Lotus, it will never succeed without three to five years time!” Ye Xiao said in a deep voice.
“No… No… Master, you didn’t understand me. What I meant was… You actually just need three to five years to do it? It is actually just such a short time?” Bing Xin-Yue said with an embarrassed bearings.
[Fxck it! Did I make it too short again?] Ye Xiao thought and then he said, “What I said is specially about this very Regeneration Jade Lotus though. As long as there are enough materials, it can become a Renascence Jade Lotus for sure! As for the other lotuses, that will be a different thing.”
“What do you mean?”
