Chapter 370: What About a Cinerary Urn?
This was not Mystic Moon’s first time coming to Lin Yuan’s mansion. Although Mystic Moon would not come every other day, he would come once every half a month, so it had long been like a walk in a park.
However, since Hu Quan would be sleeping during the day and working hard at night, and Mystic Moon mostly came in the morning, this was the first time that Hu Quan saw him in person.
The two envoys of the Radiant Moon Palace, Cold Moon, and Mystic Moon were prestigious. Envoy Cold Moon handled external affairs, while Envoy Mystic Moon handled internal affairs. Therefore, they were very famous.
But to Envoy Mystic Moon, those with strength and status knew very few, but those top factions of the Radiance Federation were qualified to know about it. Hence, Hu Quan did not recognize Mystic Moon’s identity.
However, when Hu Quan saw him dressed in a silver robe, he seemed to have vaguely recalled a rumor inside his head that he could not quite remember.
Listen had figured out the close relationship between Mystic Moon and Lin Yuan. Lin Yuan called Hu Quan Uncle Hu before, mainly because of Hu Quan’s age. It was a polite way to address him.
But when Lin Yuan called this silver-robed man Uncle Mystic, it was also a kind of an uncle on a kin level even if there was no blood relationship between them. Otherwise, this silver-robed man would not have brought something to Lin Yuan on his master’s behalf.
Lin Yuan hurriedly picked up a teacup and poured a cup of Three Treasures Tea for Mystic Moon before giving it to him and saying, “Uncle Mystic, have a cup of tea.”
Mystic Moon took the teacup, and after just one sniff, he said in a clear voice, “Little Yuan, this Three Treasures Tea with plums smells good!”
Upon hearing that, Lin Yuan chuckled and replied, “Wen Yu brewed this. The plums that Uncle Mystic sent over last time were also added inside.”
When Mystic Moon heard that Wen Yu had brewed it, he said, “When you went to training, Wen Yu and Cai Cha learned a few days of the tea ceremony. I heard from Cai Cha that Wen Yu learned quite well.”
Mystic Moon’s words contained his appreciation for Wen Yu, and he clearly had great expectations of her.
As the Moon Envoy of the Radiant Moon Palace on the Leaning Moon Mountain, Mystic Moon was the Moon Empress’ envoy. It was not too much to say that he was the Radiant Moon Palace’s chief steward.
Wen Yu had been just a spirit attendant in the Radiant Moon Palace, so Mystic Moon had not paid attention to her.
Ever since Lin Yuan had chosen Wen Yu as his assistant, she had then appeared in Mystic Moon’s sight, and he also had contact with Wen Yu.
At first, Mystic Moon was in favor of sending two spirit attendants to Lin Yuan as assistants. Since Wen Yu had independently completed the mansion’s construction very well, Mystic Moon had seen her strong capability of doing things, which put off his intention to tell Lin Yuan about his suggestion.
However, Mystic Moon truly thought highly of her when Lin Yuan had gone out for training. At that time, she had visited the Radiant Moon Palace to find the Moon Empress to become stronger. After the Moon Empress had coached her about the ability of a Creation Master, she left Wen Yu to Mystic Moon and let him take her to learn about the Radiance Federation’s major factions.
At first, Mystic Moon had only listened to the Moon Empress’ order and guided Wen Yu, but the more he guided her, he discovered her resourcefulness that was far beyond ordinary people. This had allowed him to see the best in her besides her being a spirit qi professional and Creation Master.
As the Radiant Moon Palace’s Moon Envoy, Mystic Moon could not help but sigh at the strength of Wen Yu’s resourcefulness in terms of faction insights and resource deployment.
When she had been a spirit attendant, Wen Yu simply did not have the opportunity to show her talents. Now that she was Lin Yuan’s assistant, she had the chance to do so.
After Mystic Moon discovered Wen Yu’s talent in that area, he carefully taught her for a month. This was the reason that when Wen Yu returned to the mansion and played the Fey Battle Flag game, she had been able to take over the resources from the other five players, shocking Lin Yuan.
After Mystic Moon finished the tea in the teacup, he placed it on the table. Then he waved his hand and took out a small square box made of beeswax.
Mystic Moon gave it to Lin Yuan and said, “This is something small that your master made for you.”
Lin Yuan took the small square box and noticed that Mystic Moon had the intention to leave, so Lin Yuan said, “Uncle Mystic, sit here for a while. I’ll go wash some fruits for you to eat.”
After saying that, Lin Yuan went to the kitchen and did not give Mystic Moon any chance to refuse him. When Mystic Moon saw Lin Yuan like that, he could not help but laugh involuntarily.
Mystic Moon always felt that Lin Yuan was very competent and was not at all like an 18- or 19-year-old youth. But now, Lin Yuan had shown childish behavior, which let Mystic Moon know that Lin Yuan really treated him as a family.
When Lin Yuan had called Mystic Moon ‘Uncle Mystic’ outside the Radiant Moon Palace, besides treating Lin Yuan as the Radiant Moon Palace’s Young Lord and his young master, Mystic Moon also regarded Lin Yuan as his junior and nephew.
After Lin Yuan went to wash the fruits, only Mystic Moon, Hu Quan, and Listen were left in the large living room.
Mystic Moon looked at Hu Quan and Listen and said, “Let’s sit together.”
When Hu Quan and Listen saw Mystic Moon, they were a little formal, not only because Mystic Moon was Lin Yuan’s uncle. Rather, it was because of Mystic Moon’s clear and superior aura.
Such an aura was simply transcendent!
It was simply not something that ordinary people could have.
When Mystic Moon heard Hu Quan and Lin Yuan’s conversation earlier, he heard Hu Quan say he was a Class 5 Spirit Craftsman. Therefore, when he looked at Hu Quan, he could not help but also think highly of him.
Mystic Moon had heard Hu Quan say before that he wanted to build a fey carriage, so he could not help but ask, “What kind of material do you think is more suitable for the construction of the fey carriage?”
Hu Quan was a little surprised. Why would this silver-robed man in front of him ask him such a question?
However, since he had been asked, Hu Quan answered truthfully, “I think it would be the best if the main body of the fey carriage is made of completely jade-textured wood, with some rare metals.”
After Mystic Moon heard Hu Quan’s idea, he nodded in appreciation. The combination of completely jade-textured wood and rare metals was indeed very suitable for a fey carriage. It was not tacky and did not look shabby.
However, it was a little inferior to the coral stones faded from gemstone corals of Suzerain feys.
Then Mystic Moon asked, “Then how many flying feys pulling the fey carriage do you think are more suitable?”
Upon hearing that, Hu Quan thought for a moment and replied, “Actually, three flying feys are enough. If conditions allow, it is best to have five. Otherwise, having one is actually not bad.”
Hu Quan now had also set his heart on making a fey carriage. He wanted to make an item that could represent his peak achievement after becoming a Class 5 Spirit Craftsman.
Secondly, Hu Quan also wanted to repay Lin Yuan and contribute more to him.
However, this was not so much the case when Mystic Moon heard it. Mystic Moon nearly thought he had heard wrongly!
Was this still the same Class 5 Spirit Craftsman who just said he wanted to make a carriage out of completely jade-textured wood and rare metals and had great ideas?
Mystic Moon really wanted to pry open Hu Quan’s brain to take a look inside.
How poor and shabby had the first half of his life been that a Class 5 Spirit Craftsman would say one flying fey was enough to pull a fey carriage?
If only one flying fey was used to pull the fey carriage, then what was the significance of the fey carriage?
Wouldn’t such a fey carriage be a cinerary urn that could not move a few hundred meters in the sky?
