Li Yundong wiped his hands and walked out of the kitchen. As expected, he saw Wan Zhenyuan standing in the living room in a suit and leather shoes with a small suitcase in his hand. The little foxes in the room looked at this uninvited guest with vigilance and confusion.
"Master Wan!" Although Li Yundong did not know the purpose of Wan Zhenyuan's visit, he still cupped his hands. He smiled politely and said, "How have you been since the Taoist assembly?"
Wan Zhenyuan waved his hand and said with a wry smile, "Zhenren Li, don't be so genteel. There are no outsiders here. You don't need to be so polite."
Li Yundong smiled and said, "Then why are you here, Master Wan?"
Wan Zhenyuan looked around and saw that the living room was full of people, all looking at him with bright eyes. He thought for a moment and said, "Zhenren Li, can we find a quiet place to talk?"
Li Yundong smiled and said, "How about going to my room?"
Wan Zhenyuan slightly saluted. "Amitayus, please lead the way, Zhenren Li."
Li Yundong went to the room with Wan Zhenyuan under everyone's curious gaze. After closing the door, he asked, "Master Wan, there are only the two of us here. What's the matter? Can you tell me now?"
However, Wan Zhenyuan was not in a hurry. He looked around and said with a smile, "Zhenren Li, you are so carefree! In this paradise, beauty is all around you, and you are as happy as a Shenxian!"
Li Yundong remained calm and said nothing. He just stared at Wan Zhenyuan.
After looking around for a while, Wan Zhenyuan found that Li Yundong wasn't answering, so he coughed a little awkwardly and said, "Zhenren Li, let's get straight to the point! I came here to ask you for help!"
Li Yundong smiled slightly and said, "Master Wan, you really know how to joke. As the largest sect in the External Alchemy, your Gezao Sect has plenty of money and influence. Is there anything you can't solve? You need to come and ask me for help?"
Wan Zhenyuan raised his head and laughed. "Zhenren Li, you can't say that. As the saying goes, Fengshui revolves around the world. Who never needs to beg for help?"
Li Yundong smiled and said, "Well, Master Wan, what can I do for you?"
Wan Zhenyuan nodded slightly. He stroked his goatee with one hand and said with a smile, "Zhenren Li, if what I know is right, the Heavenly Jindan Technique should be with you?"
Li Yundong was shocked and thought to himself. "It's really coming!"
Li Yundong nodded and said, "Yes, that's right!"
Wan Zhenyuan laughed. "Then Zhenren Li, I, Wan Zhenyuan, have a presumptuous request... Well, could you lend me the Heavenly Jindan Technique?"
Li Yundong frowned slightly. Seeing this, Wan Zhenyuan immediately said, "Don't worry, Zhenren Li. I will never use it against you! If you have any requirements, just tell me! As long as I can do it, I will fulfill your request!"
Li Yundong laughed in his heart. "The best Immortal Pen in your hand has been taken, and I have stolen the Human Gold Core in the past. What good things do you have now? Even if you had something good, how could you guarantee that you wouldn't be robbed again?"
Li Yundong chuckled and said, "Master Wan, you must be joking. The Heavenly Jindan Technique is a secret of the Mystical Silver Fox. How can I decide on my own and lend it to others?"
Wan Zhenyuan stared at Li Yundong with his bright eyes. He suddenly smiled meaningfully and said, "Zhenren Li, since you have made yourself clear, let's talk frankly. I believe you also understand that the Heavenly Jindan Technique is not the original work of the Fox Zen School. It is the legacy of Cheng Pu, Mr. Niwan. By rights, it is a Taoist treasure, and our Gezao Sect is an orthodox Taoist sect. Generally speaking, I have a reason to ask to take a look."
Wan Zhenyuan saw Li Yundong's smile, and his expression was a little unfriendly. He immediately grinned and said, "Of course, since the Heavenly Jindan Technique can be passed down to this day, the Mystical Silver Fox has made a lot of contributions. The fact that the Fox Zen School has such a secret skill has been set in reality, so I specially came to make a deal with you, Zhenren Li!"
Li Yundong said with a smile, "What is a sure deal that won't be lost?"
Wan Zhenyuan laughed. "Zhenren Li, the Heavenly Jindan Technique is of no use to you now. You've already memorized what you ought to. But for us who haven't cultivated it before, it's priceless. If you lend it to me, I'm willing to give you the garden that was used in the Taoist assembly as a gift. What do you think?"
Li Yundong's heart slightly moved. He remembered that Su Chan had once said that she liked the garden and hoped to live in such a place in the future. At that time, he had thought that it was unlikely. After all, the land prices in Dongwu City were high, and this garden was located in the center of the city. It could not be bought without tens of millions of yuan. This Wan Zhenyuan was willing to spend tens of millions on buying the Heavenly Jindan Technique?
Not to mention other things, if he sold this garden, he would be rich! There would be no need to worry about the food problem at the Fox Zen School at all.
Li Yundong had come from a poor family and knew the hardships of making money very well. There was a huge sum of money in front of him. For a moment, no matter how strong Li Yundong's willpower was, he couldn't help but be affected.
However, Li Yundong had a good temper in the Spirit Space. Although there were waves in his heart, his expression was as deep as water.
Wan Zhenyuan saw that Li Yundong was calm and thought for a while. He thought that Li Yundong didn't like the garden, so he said with a smile, "Of course, Zhenren Li, you are so high and mighty, so you don't like it. However, I know that because of your lack of money, you don't live in Mount Tianlong anymore, so..."
Wan Zhenyuan smiled and took out a stack of documents from the small suitcase he carried with him. He said, "I rented Mount Tianlong again. As long as Zhenren Li agrees, I can transfer this document to you immediately, and the Fox Zen School will be able to return to the mountain today!"
Li Yundong was suddenly moved. He couldn't help but take a look at the stack of documents and be shocked in his heart. "Wan Zhenyuan is really good at trickery. To cater to my pleasure, he unexpectedly did this!"
Seeing that Li Yundong was indeed tempted, Wan Zhenyuan felt proud in his heart. He threw out another trump card and said, "Zhenren Li, if you think this is not enough, I still have something to exchange with you!"
Li Yundong calmed down slightly and asked, "What is it?"
Wan Zhenyuan smiled and said, "A Diyuan Jindan!"
When Li Yundong heard this, despite strong his willpower was, he couldn't keep calm anymore. He took a deep breath and said in surprise, "Diyuan Jindan? You have Diyuan Jindan?"
Wan Zhenyuan smiled and asked noncommittally, "So, Zhenren Li, are you willing to exchange for it?"
In Li Yundong's view, either of the two items that Wan Zhenyuan was offering was enough to exchange for the Heavenly Jindan Technique. Although the Heavenly Jindan Technique was a priceless treasure, it was only a rare treasure for cultivators who had not cultivated it. For Li Yundong, who had already cultivated it and had its copies, it just like a rare commodity.
However, Wan Zhenyuan was not only offering a garden worth tens of millions of yuan and Mount Tianlong for it, but also the Diyuan Jindan?
No matter how precious the Heavenly Jindan Technique is, it's still not as valuable as the Diyuan Jindan!
Moreover, Li Yundong had heard that Wan Zhenyuan wanted to refine the Diyuan Jindan, but he had failed because he was short of a guiding drug. But after a month, had he succeeded?
The other party's bid was too high and the conditions were ridiculously generous, making Li Yundong vigilant. He asked, "Master Wan, as far as I know, no one has ever refined a Diyuan Jindan since Liu Bowen in Ming Dynasty. Where did you refine it? Even if you could refine one, you must have other requirements besides the Heavenly Jindan Technique, right?"
Wan Zhenyuan chuckled and said, "You're right, Zhenren Li! I do have something else to ask of you!"
Li Yundong felt a little relieved when he heard Wan Zhenyuan admit it. He asked, "What's the matter?"
Wan Zhenyuan said, "I am refining the Diyuan Jindan now. As long as you're willing to give me the Heavenly Jindan Technique and find a guiding drug for me, I will give you the garden of Dongwu City and Mount Tianlong. On top of that, I will give you one Diyuan Jindan that will be refined in the future!"
Li Yundong was shocked, but he soon calmed down. "You'll give me one? What kind of elixir of life is the Diyuan Jindan? How many pills can you refine in one furnace? What will you do if there is only one pill?"
Wan Zhenyuan laughed and said, "Zhenren Li, you worry too much. If it was External Alchemy refining it, one Diyuan Jindan could be refined in one furnace, which would already be a great skill. However, when our Gezao Sect refines it, there will be at least two Diyuan Jindans in one furnace. Sometimes, there can even be nine Diyuan Jindans in one furnace!"
Li Yundong couldn't help but say with admiration, "Awesome, you really deserve to be the leader of External Alchemy! Good means and good magic!"
Wan Zhenyuan laughed proudly and said, "Thank you for your compliment, Zhenren Li. I don't dare to accept it!"
Li Yundong suddenly asked again, "But, Master Wan, what is this guiding drug? Where is it? Why are you ordering so many people to look for me?"
Wan Zhenyuan smiled and said, "Zhenren Li, I was expecting you to ask such a question. This tool is a 1,000-year-old snow lotus. It can only be found in the snow-exterminating sacred mountain in Tibet!"
Li Yundong asked in confusion, "Since you know what this guiding drug is and where it is, why don't you go and get it yourself?"
Wan Zhenyuan couldn't help sighing and said, "Zhenren Li, do you really not know, or are you only pretending not to know?"
Li Yundong cupped his hands and said, "Master Wan, please explain?"
Wan Zhenyuan stared at Li Yundong for a while before saying, "Zhenren Li, ever since the Manchu were in charge of the Qing government, the central plains of Buddhism and Taoism have been suppressed one after another. The power of the Cultivation World has been declining, and the power of Tibetan Buddhism has been flourishing. Although the power of Tibetan Buddhism returned to Tibet after the founding of the PRC, everyone knows that the three parties are secretly colluding with each other. This thousand-year-old snow lotus is the halidom of the Esoteric Sect in Tibet, and is growing up high on the sacred mountain. With the protection of the holy monk and the mountain god of the Esoteric Sect, do you think just anyone can go up there and take it away?"
Li Yundong became more and more surprised. He asked, "So, how do you know that I can do it?"
Wan Zhenyuan looked at Li Yundong meaningfully and said with a smile, "Zhenren Li, I heard that the newly found Banda Lam from the Esoteric Sect in Tibet... is your good friend!"
Li Yundong's heart suddenly froze. He suddenly shouted, "How did you know that?"
Wan Zhenyuan laughed and said, "Zhenren Li, when you were unknown in the past, no one knew what you did. Now that you are famous all over the world, you have nothing to hide. How could no one know?"
Li Yundong stared at Wan Zhenyuan doubtfully and asked, "You mean, I give you the Heavenly Jindan Technique and the 1,000-year-old snow lotus, and you'll give me the garden and Mount Tianlong in Dongwu City along with one Diyuan Jindan, right?"
Wan Zhenyuan smiled and said, "Yes! But, Zhenren Li, even if you don't go to get the 1,000-year-old snow lotus, I'll be willing to use the garden and the Mount Tianlong to exchange for the Heavenly Jindan Technique with you. As for the Diyuan Jindan, it depends on whether Zhenren Li is interested in it or not!"
Li Yundong couldn't help but fall into deep thought. He thought to himself. "Du Fei wants to exchange for the Heavenly Jindan Technique with me, and now Wan Zhenyuan also wants to trade with me, and the conditions are so generous!
"Could life really be so good?"
