Chapter 233: Strategy

“Senior, long time no see.”
At the edge of the cliff, the woman’s clothes were as white as snow as she stood gracefully like a fairy that had walked out of a painting. She was peerlessly gorgeous, causing others to be unable to help but be infatuated with her.
Even someone like Qin Jue became absent-minded for a moment.
“Why are you here?” After a while, Qin Jue finally reacted and subconsciously asked.
“Didn’t Senior say that I could come and find you?” The woman stuck out her tongue and said playfully.
The person who came was none other than Su Yan, who had once gone to the Sacred Land of the Central Continent with Qin Jue. It had been several months since they last saw each other.
At this moment, Su Yan was undoubtedly much gentler than when they first met. She no longer had the cold indifference that kept people at arm’s length. The spirit energy in her body was also faintly suffused with the aura of wind and lightning. Clearly, she had improved again.
“Uh… that’s right.”
Qin Jue was stunned for a moment before remembering that he had promised her that she could visit him at any time.
It was just that so much time had passed that Qin Jue had almost forgotten.
“Actually, this isn’t my first time here.”
The woman covered her mouth and chuckled. “But Senior wasn’t here the last time I was here,” she said.
Hearing this, Qin Jue smiled bitterly and said, “I probably went out to do something.”
If there were no accidents, when Su Yan came last time, he had probably left the Spirit Central World and was likely to be in either the Hell World or the Profound Mysteries Realm. Thus, it was normal for the other party to have missed him.
“How long have you been waiting here?”
Qin Jue changed the topic to avoid awkwardness.
“Uh… about an hour.”
Su Yan pondered.
Qin Jue heaved a sigh of relief, feeling glad that she hadn’t waited too long.
Nowadays, the Xuanyi Mountain Sect had already become the “sacred land” of the Southern Land, and no high-level cultivators dared to provoke it casually.
Therefore, Qin Jue didn’t pay much attention to the outside world. Otherwise, it would be impossible for him not to notice the woman.
“By the way, Senior, this is a gift I prepared for you.”
As if recalling something, Su Yan took out two pots of spirit wine from her storage ring and handed them to Qin Jue.
“Mm? Thousand-year-old spirit wine?”
Qin Jue was surprised. “Where did you get these?”
Even the spirit wine in the Archaic Mysteries Sect’s wine cellar was only a few hundred years old. So where did Su Yan get the thousand-year-old spirit wine from?
“Our previous sect master of the Thunder Breeze Sect likes to drink. He left these spirit wines behind in the past.”
In fact, there were some details that Su Yan left out. Even though she was the holy maiden of the Thunder Breeze Sect, she still needed the current sect master and elders’ permission to obtain these two pots of spirit wine.
Fortunately, after she advanced to the Supreme Stage, her status soared, and no one deliberately made things difficult for her.
“In that case, I’ll take these off your hands.”
Qin Jue took the spirit wine and took a deep breath, revealing an intoxicated expression.
Even before opening it, Qin Jue could already smell the rich fragrance inside. Unable to help himself, he quickly opened it and took a sip.
Unlike the thousand-year-old spirit wine in the Wuji Mystic Realm and the Spirit Clan, this pot of spirit wine was even more mellow and fragrant, with an endless aftertaste. It was also very sweet and tasted like fruit wine.
Even people who didn’t like to drink would be able to enjoy it. However, they probably wouldn’t be able to handle it.
“How is it?”
Qin Jue nodded solemnly.
“Haha, I knew it.”
Su Yan jumped up happily, her beautiful face full of joy.
If those Thunder Breeze Sect disciples knew that their goddess became so happy after hearing the praise of some man, who knew what they would think?
“Why don’t you have a sip too?”
Qin Jue smiled.
Su Yan’s eyes lit up as she nodded repeatedly.
Qin Jue :”…”
Suddenly, Qin Jue felt strange.
He felt as if he was leading a “little kid” astray.
However, since he had already offered it, how could Qin Jue go back on his word? He could only let Su Yan take a sip.
Su Yan was slightly surprised, as if she did not know that the spirit wine tasted like this.
“Yes, it should be brewed with spirit fruits.” Qin Jue said indifferently.
Although he did not know how to brew wine, no one could match Qin Jue’s ability to discern wine. No matter what wine it was, as long as he took a sip, he would be able to figure out the rough composition.
Su Yan suddenly understood.
“Ah, it’s you? Why are you here?”
At this moment, Yun Xi ended her cultivation and flew over from the side, her tone filled with hostility.
“Little fellow, I also prepared a gift for you.”
As soon as these words were spoken, Yun Xi immediately rushed in front of Su Yan. “What gift?”
“Of course it’s spirit wine!”
Su Yan took out two pots of spirit wine again and enticed.
Compared to the spirit wine given to Qin Jue, these two pots of spirit wine were only about a hundred years old, but they still emitted a nice fragrance.
“Wow, thank you!”
Without waiting for Su Yan to let go, Yun Xi directly seized two pots of spirit wine that were even bigger than her and ran to the side to drink it happily.
Qin Jue :”…”
Qin Jue realized that Yun Xi was a living example of how he had once led a “little kid” astray.
If the heavens could give Qin Jue another chance, he would absolutely not water Yun Xi with spirit wine again.
“Is there a reason for your visit?” Qin Jue shrugged his shoulders helplessly and asked.
“Yes… um, no?”
Qin Jue was somewhat dumbfounded, not knowing what Su Yan meant.
“No, no. No reason at all.”
After hesitating for a moment, Su Yan shook her head and said, “I came out this time just to see Senior.”
For a moment, Qin Jue didn’t know how to answer and could only change the topic again.
“Ahem, I have something for you too.”
As he spoke, Qin Jue took out a jade bracelet and handed it to Su Yan.
“What is this?”
Su Yan blushed and couldn’t help but think of the bronze mirror Qin Jue had given her last time.
“Legendary spirit artifact.”
Qin Jue explained, “If you wear it on your hand, it can help you resist three full-power attacks of a Legendary Stage expert. Every time it’s activated, the jade bracelet will send you hundreds of kilometers away from danger.”
Qin Jue had plundered this Legendary spirit artifact from the Spirit Clan. Since it was useless to him, he had always kept it in his storage ring. Now, it could be given to Su Yan.
“Ah! It’s too precious. I can’t take it.”
Su Yan was shocked. There were only two Legendary spirit artifacts in the entire Thunder Breeze Sect. How could she casually accept such a generous gift?
“Do you think I have the need for something like this?”
Su Yan was suddenly speechless.
“Put it on.”
After hesitating for a long time, Su Yan finally accepted the jade bracelet and wore it.
With this Legendary spirit artifact, as long as the other party was not at the Saint Stage, it basically meant that Su Yan would have an additional three lives.
“Thank you, Senior.”
Taking a deep breath, Su Yan said seriously, “Um… I’ll cook something for you to eat.”
Qin Jue was stunned. Why did the conversation suddenly shift to food?
“Uh… sure. I haven’t had breakfast yet anyway.” Qin Jue said muddle-headedly.
As soon as he finished speaking, a set of kitchen supplies and various fresh ingredients suddenly appeared in front of Su Yan. Clearly, she had come prepared.
In Qin Jue’s impression, as the holy maiden of the Thunder Breeze Sect and a high-level cultivator, it was likely that Su Yan was someone who didn’t know how to cook.
This was obvious from the time they spent in the Central Continent.
But what Qin Jue didn’t know was that after Su Yan returned to the sect this time, besides working hard in cultivation, she even deliberately learned how to cook in secret to woo Qin Jue!
