However, when Meng Xiaoyao said this, it was like a serious order to them, so they no longer hesitated and obeyed promptly. They simply said farewell and walked down the southwest hillside after turning around and thanking Alex.

Although Yu Xuening couldn't understand English, she could figure out what was going on. When she noticed Meng Xiaoyao was ready to go, she snorted and abruptly stopped him.

Meng Xiaoyao knew what Yu Xuening meant without asking, and smiled, "Little Xue, don’t you understand?”

"These people here have nothing to do with me, but there is one thing I want to ask clearly. Otherwise, it is self-contradictory that you can sit back and ignore it like this," Yu Xuening said.

Meng Xiaoyao raised his eyebrows, "Why do you say so?"

"Why build up such a protracted game, waiting for Yang Chen to play so much for you, when you are so casual and easy-going about things? Why don't you just go away, leave the earth alone, and let the human race die?" Yu Xuening's tone was a little arrogant.

"After I passed through that gate 50,000 years ago, all my thoughts and ideas are based on what I have realized, not bound by the cause and effect of heaven and earth," Meng Xiaoyao stated with a smile. "I don't have to explain how to deal with it to anyone, and I have my own judgement."

Yu Xuening squinted her eyes, a trace of annoyance flashed on her beautiful face, and she gritted her  teeth, "I am tired of hearing your excuses.”

"Why are you so worked up for, Little Xue? You have concealed what I wrote and my numerous arrangements in front of Yang Chen since you are in the Tongtian Pagoda, which shows you have already agreed with my method. Is it necessary for individuals like you and me to quarrel about something so insignificant?" exclaimed Meng Xiaoyao

Yu Xuening laughed with a silver bell-like sound, as though she believed Meng Xiaoyao was overconfident. "You only predicted it half right. I agree with your deployment, and while it is not entirely understood, I can comprehend your expectations. However, I am willing to do this not because I believe in you, but because I believe in my own vision. That dumb boy Yang Chen will eventually make you realize that your years of comprehension may not be fully accurate."

"Oh, my expectations for Yang Chen are also a little higher given the fact that you can create such statements about him," Meng Xiaoyao stated quietly.

Yu Xuening rolled her eyes at him and she disappeared from the slope in a flash.

In this scene, Alex, who was beside him, was so frightened that he fell to his knees and worshiped loudly, thinking that it was a god descending to earth!

And in the next instant, what almost followed everyone's ears was the sound of an explosion from the sea.

Those warships with reinforced iron frames, like behemoths in the sea, made a series of roars...

Yu Xuening sank these European troops with just a little means!

That being done, Yu Xuening's figure returned to the mountain again, and turned her head towards Meng Xiaoyao, "If you want to give up on them, that’s your choice, but I won’t.”

Meng Xiaoyao didn't bother about her actions. As if watching a little girl fooling around, he didn't take it too seriously, and said, "The days here are coming to an end, so let's go to my residence now. There is a little guest there, she can't be left alone or she will inevitably feel unwelcome.” 

This made Yu Xuening a little puzzled, and she didn't ask any more questions. She then followed Meng Xiaoyao and his two other apprentices and left the island. 

...

In a small world that was extremely quiet, there were birds singing and flowers and bushes everywhere. 

The air was filled with the fragrance of nature, the temperature was comfortable and the sun was shining.

In the center of a piece of grass, there were several ingenious wooden pavilions and lofts, surrounded by waterside flowers, and some exotic flowers and plants that were planted on several acres of small land.

And precisely in such a quaint place, a white woman in an amber color dress was sitting on the edge of a stone platform outside the building, holding a roll of objects similar to bamboo slips in her hand, but if you look closely, it was a jade slip.

On these turquoise jades, various golden runes were glimmering, and the runes recorded a huge amount of information that could be extracted by putting in True Yuan.

The white woman looked at this jade slip with great enthusiasm. On the stone table beside her, there were quite a few other copies.

The picture in the courtyard outside the pavilion changed, and four figures appeared after flashing like a water mirror. It was Meng Xiaoyao, Yu Xuening, and the other two apprentices. 

Yu Xuening was fascinated by this side of the world and grinned, "Meng Xiaoyao, you seem to be having a good time, eh... Sure enough, after passing through that door, you can create a stable place for yourself... I intend to test the power of the great old immortals in the future..."

"You could have done it long ago if you wanted to, you don't have to mock me like this," Meng Xiaoyao said and smiled, walking towards the white woman.

At this time, the white woman who had been burying her head at the jade slip also noticed their approach and after frowning, she put down the jade slip and looked at Meng Xiaoyao with a complicated expression.

"Senior," She sounded pretty respectful. 

Meng Xiaoyao said with a smile, "Jane, did you get anything from reading these jade slips?"

This white beauty was Jane who was brought here by Yang Yuansu.

"I imagined that a Chinese master like you should follow the laws of heaven and be more naive towards scientific knowledge," Jane replied, with an indescribable wry smile, pursed lips, and paused for a long time. "However, the scientific research and knowledge reserves of the elders astounded me greatly..."

The jade slips she read before were selected from Meng Xiaoyao's study, and he allowed her to read them.

These jade slips were not secret manuals of exercises, but Meng Xiaoyao's achievements and ideas in various scientific researches, all of which were the technology of this era.

Meng Xiaoyao said as it should be, "That's natural. If you live like me for tens of thousands of years, you will always start to learn all kinds of things. Your comprehension in science is way higher than mine, I am just relying on the accumulation of age and years to overwhelm you, but in terms of future creativity, I am still inferior.”

"Senior, you’re flattering me," Jane smiled and said.

Meng Xiaoyao shook his head and continued, "If you weren't as amazing as I stated, I wouldn't 'flatter' you. Plus, you're a hidden gem and an unexpected variable, therefore I wouldn't allow you to come and remain with me during this time."

After listening to Jane, although she knew it was a compliment, she laughed more bitterly and helplessly.

Yu Xuening, who had been listening, was in a daze. She didn't know much about the concept of science, and she wondered, "What are you talking about, why is this beautiful girl a variable?"

Meng Xiaoyao turned back and said, "Little Xue, this little girl is not simple. If Yang Chen, with his understanding and personality, will become the key to affecting the fate of this human catastrophe... Then, this little girl is someone who can rely on her brain to affect the outcome of this catastrophe. I have no choice but to separate her from Yang Chen, otherwise, with her assistance, maybe it won't be able to stimulate Yang Chen's true limit."

Yu Xuening froze, looking up and down at Jane, and didn't seem to believe it.

Jane also looked at Yu Xuening curiously. Like what they said, beauties always pay special attention to each other.

"You’re kidding, right? Although this little girl looks good, her cultivation is barely approaching the Tribulation Passing Stage. Hmm... Her comprehension and root bones are excellent indeed, but there is still a gap with Yang Chen’s frantic qualifications. You must know that if the kid is working hard now, it will not be a problem to double his strength. How can this little girl... become the key?"

When Jane heard this, she asked excitedly, "What? Senior...you... Do you know Yang Chen? Has he come back? Where is he now?!"

Yu Xuening thought for a while, remembering that Yang Chen seemed to be looking for a woman, and couldn't help giggling, "It turned out to be you… You are that kid’s confidante who was kidnapped and taken away? Hehe, don't worry, he's all right. It’s just that he’s kinda unhappy that he can’t find you I suppose.”

Jane breathed a sigh of relief, she looked a little anxious yet helpless at the same time. 

"Don't worry too much, Yang Chen already knows that you are safe and sound, he has more important things now, and he needs to make a choice. When everything is settled, I will naturally let you out," Meng Xiaoyao comforted her. 

Jane nodded, but her concerns were clearly unabated. She got increasingly concerned about Yang Chen's fate as she gradually realized the truth of everything, because... this cannot be solved rationally.

Yu Xuening also showed a trace of excitement, she didn't plan to go out and will stay in this place and wait for the result.
