Fortunately, Fairy Feng was able to make it in time. Otherwise, another Spirit Plant would have been hoed by Ye Wen like a weed.
Fairy Feng was stunned as she stared at Ye Wen. The other party was also looking at her with a calm expression, as if what she had done was only right and proper.
Her expression was incomparably excited as she spoke in the blink of an eye, "Ignorant junior, who told you to pick them?"
A smile flashed across Ye Feng's eyes. "Of course it's you. Let me remind you, you just said that I can dispose of any of the medicinal ingredients that I picked from a spirit plant that's at the first to third level of the spirit rank."
His expression gradually became solemn as he continued, "I think it's better if I say that fairy doesn't mean anything."
Fairy Feng's face froze for a moment before turning red. She clearly remembered how she had bragged about herself earlier due to her carelessness.
If it was only Fairy Feng and Ye Feng, then she would have shamelessly played the fool for the sake of her personal benefits. It wouldn't have been a big deal.
However, since Wang Tianzhi had gathered so many people to watch, she had no way to refute him.
Benefits are important and reputations are equally valuable.
Therefore, she didn't know how to respond to Ye Wen's glare.
Seeing this, Wang Tianzhi knew that he had made up for it this time. He was filled with hatred, and could only make up for it more or less. He immediately spoke loudly from afar.
"Ye Zifeng, you should be more or less fine. This medicine mountain's spirit strains were all nurtured by the fairy's blood and sweat. You have to let bygones be bygones."
Ye Wen's eyes lit up. He knew that Wang Tianzi would only ask a question about time, so he smiled faintly.
"Compared to this, Wang Tian Zhi, I didn't think that you would be so rude to Fairy Feng."
Wang Tianzhi's heart trembled. "What's wrong with me?" He was sincere towards Fairy Feng and wholeheartedly tried to help her. How could he possibly be rude to her?
"Because, according to what you said, it means that you want me, a mere Qi Condensation Disciple, to spare the life of a true disciple of the Celestial Sect of Wonders. Do you want me to forgive you?"
Ye Wen's words were loud and clear, and it was as if stone after stone was falling into Wang Tianzhi's heart.
Upon hearing Ye Feng's words, everyone nodded their heads in agreement.
As for the others, because they had come to watch the show, they couldn't wait to see a beautiful woman like her embarrass herself, so they helped Ye Qiu.
After all, they were the ones who had bought the gold coins, so they couldn't restrict their actions.
Wang Tian Zhi was stunned when he heard this. He couldn't help but curse in his heart, "Ye Feng, you …"
"You are forcing me."
"So what if I force you. Alright, I won't tell you any more. Time is of the essence. I don't know if I'll be able to gather all the medicinal ingredients required by Thousand Herbs Peak in the entire morning."
He used the ten thousand contribution points of the Wind King Dagger and the five thousand contribution points of the Golden Thread. Before he officially faced off against the enemy, the Sickle that he used to cut down the spirit plant was truly a "God Equipment".
"You just said …"
"If we're going to finish all of them, then …" Fairy Feng's charming face immediately became extremely ugly to behold.
Looking at Ye Feng's unwavering expression, it did not seem like he was joking.
If he was given any time, he might really cut off the entire Medicine Peak.
"Of course, but rest assured, fairy maiden. Zi Feng will definitely abide by the rules. If he collects any wrong spirit plant, he will definitely compensate fairy ten times the market price."
It would have been great if Ye Wen had picked the wrong medicine, but after observing for a while, Fairy Feng saw that Ye Zifeng's blade had landed on a spirit plant of the first to third ranks.
It could be said that not a single strike was superfluous.
The corner of her mouth started to twitch. The astonishment in her heart was evident from her words.
"It can't be, this …"
"Do you really know these Spiritual Grade Spirit Stones?"
To her, this discovery was akin to a disaster.
This meant that she would either admit her mistake and lower her head to change the rules, or allow Ye Zifeng to sweep away all the spirit plants that she had painstakingly cultivated. She could only hope that he would make a mistake while busy.
"Enough, Ye Zifeng. Tell me, what do you want in order to change the rules?"
Wang Tian Zhi's expression was calm as he looked at Ye Wen with a darkened face. Since Fairy Feng didn't say anything, he could only shoulder his own responsibility.
Ye Wen glanced at him with a smile. "It's fine, why should I change the rules? Although spirit strains of the first to the third level of the spirit rank are not precious, they are, after all, small in number and can accumulate a certain amount. It's pretty good to use it for alchemy."
Wang Tian Zhi licked his lips. He had fought with Ye Zifeng for a period of time, and if he knew that the other party was doing this for their own benefit, he would show that he was the only one.
"Don't worry, of course I'll give you some benefits." He took out a silver ring that exuded scarlet fire spirit energy from his space jade pendant and said, "Ye Zifeng, if you agree to change the rules, this silver ring, which can block three attacks from a Martial Disciple, will be given to you as a gift."
However, Ye Feng did not even look at the magical treasure. He raised his head and said with a smile.
"Wang Tian Zhi, you seem to have misunderstood me."
Wang Tianzhi was stunned and asked, "What do you mean?"
"Although I don't mind using some magical equipment from my opponent, that will depend on my mood. Therefore, this doesn't mean that a mere magical equipment can bribe me and cause me to change my mind."
"Then what do you want to do?" Wang Tian Zhi's eyes widened. He had always thought that Ye Feng was a person who coveted treasures, but now it seemed that he would have to rely on his mood.
Ye Feng smiled as he stared in Fairy Feng's direction. "If you want to change the rules, that's fine. No problem, but Fairy Feng, Zi Feng is anxious to break through. If I win, I hope that Fairy can give me some precious medicinal ingredients and arrange a place for me to train at Herb Peak so as to help me break through."
Compared to the first to the third level of the spirit rank, what Ye Feng desired was a higher grade spirit plant and a more suitable place for cultivation. For Ye Wen, who was already at the advanced Qi Refining stage, the two could be said to be indispensable.
He had spent a great deal of effort in his heart, not hoping to humiliate the other party without cause, but to raise his cultivation level.
Fairy Feng stared at him for a moment before nodding. "Cultivation of one's self is the most important thing in every Martial Spirit Continent. This request is not excessive. I can promise you this. As for the upper limit of the number of precious medicinal ingredients, I've already made it clear to you that you can't ask for more than three."
This time, she had learned to be a little smarter. Even though she felt that she would not lose, she had still decided on the numbers.
Wang Tian Zhi's heart skipped a beat, "No way, Fairy, I can't allow this."
If Fairy Feng agreed to Ye Feng's request to cultivate in Herb Mountain, then wouldn't Ye Feng have a great chance to get close to her in the next three months?
Wang Tian Zhi had never been very confident in chasing after Fairy Feng, but now, he felt that his chances of succeeding were rather slim.
Fairy Feng gave a cold snort as she glared at Wang Tianzhi. "How can I not be of service? How laughable. I don't need anyone else to interfere in my work."
Wang Tian Zhi was surprised for a moment before his face turned ashen.
Since he had kindly offered himself to Fairy Feng, not only did she not appreciate his kindness, she had instead become angry with him. Naturally, he was extremely aggrieved in his heart.
"Haha, fairies sure are straightforward." Ye Feng laughed loudly.
It wasn't that he didn't care about his own profits, but when multiple interests appeared at the same time, he naturally had to choose a more suitable one. He couldn't just blindly grab one of them; therefore, he didn't think much of Wang Tianzhi, but rather of the opportunity to make a breakthrough.
On the other side, Liu Bingqian watched from afar as a look of admiration flashed across her beautiful eyes. She felt a sense of pride for Ye Feng in her heart.
It must be known that Ye Zifeng had only been in the Celestial Sect of Wonders for a short period of time, yet he was able to force a person of the Celestial Sect of Wonders to such a degree.
"Alright, then next, we'll change the rules and take some specific elixirs instead. The first priority will be the winner."
Hearing Fairy Feng change the rules, the crowd went silent for a moment before they began to discuss again in unison.
"Fairy, what you're doing isn't kind. At the very least, you're the master of Thousand Herbs Peak. You're still very familiar with some specific medicinal herbs."
"That's right, a friend from the Martial House. I think it's better if you don't compete in this match. Right now, you should just accept it and earn a good reputation."
This was because, if Ye Feng were to stop at this moment, his ability to gather medicinal plants would be spread by the people in front of him and gain quite a good reputation. Therefore, what that person said was not completely without reason.
"How is it? Can you do it? If you aren't satisfied, I can think of a way to change it." Fairy Feng frowned. Seeing Ye Zifeng remain silent for a long time, she didn't say anything.
Clearly, she also felt that her proposal was unfair to him.
"No." After muttering to himself irresolutely for a moment, Ye Wen lifted his head and smiled. "I think this plan is fine. However, I am still at the Qi Refining stage and my legs are not as strong as yours …"
"What?" Everyone was extremely surprised. Some of them even wanted to try and persuade Ye Yifeng a few more times.
The conversation between the two of them had already continued.
"If my legs aren't as strong as mine, then why don't I just stand there and let you go …"
"The time it takes to burn half an incense stick."
Ye Wen smiled slightly, paused for a moment, and then continued, "Fine. Then you tell me, what exactly are the spirit medicines that you're going to pick this time?" 5 Best Chinese Romance Books of 2020 So Far
