It was a white-haired old man in a white robe. He was sitting next to the snow pond with a fishing rod in his hand. He sat motionless, apparently either asleep or in a daze.
There was an ethereal air about him that made him seem to blend with heaven and earth, giving people a dreamlike feeling.
“Are you here? I’ve been waiting for you for a long time.” He slowly turned around, looking at Xuanyuan Mo Ze and Feng Jiu who stood not far away with a serene and amiable smile.
“How did Old Man Tianji know we were coming?” Feng Jiu asked with a smile, looking at the silver-haired old man in front of him. This old man is Mo Chen’s master. He even knew that she came from a different realm.
Old Man Tianji smiled. He looked at the couple and told them meaningfully. “Not only did I know that you’re coming, but also that you will meet a great disaster.”
Feng Jiu’s heart was flustered when she heard that. A great disaster?
She glanced at Xuanyuan Mo Ze and then at Old Man Tianji. “Please clarify, Old Man Tianji.”
But the Old Man Tianji shook his head with a smile. “The mysteries of heavens must not be revealed.”
Xuanyuan Mo Ze frowned at Old Man Tianji, “We are here for the 300-year-old Ice Core White Lotus Jade behind you.” If they listened to Old Man Tianji’s nonsensical jibber, Feng Jiu would be led to make a groundless conjecture.
Hearing Xuanyuan Mo Ze’s words, Old Man Tianji smiled, walked towards the snow pond and flew over to pick the 300-year-old Ice Core White Lotus Jade, then whirled back.
With a glance at the Ice Core White Lotus Jade in his hand, he walked slowly towards Xuanyuan Mo Ze and Feng Jiu and looked at them with a voiceless sigh. “The road ahead of you is not easy. It signals that the whole world will come to instability. Please take good care of yourself!”
After handing the Ice Core White Lotus Jade to Feng Jiu, he turned around and walked away slowly. Only a few words floated through the breeze and passed into their ears.
“It’s a blessing, not a disaster. It’s an inescapable disaster. Phoenix is reborn from ashes…”
Feng Jiu didn’t feel too good when she heard this statement and even a little irritated. These divinators who could read the stars and calculate one’s fate with their fingers, always liked to ramble about the beginning but leave you hanging at the end, acting all mysterious. Even for Feng Jiu and Xuanyuan Mo Ze, they too became restless after hearing his mysterious words.
Old Man Tianji was not an ordinary person. Since he said so, he must have his reason. But, what exactly was it?
Seeing this, Mo Chen gave them a slight smile. “Please don’t take offence. My master is like this. Since you’ve come all the way here, please stay!” He made a gesture for them to go ahead.
Xuanyuan Mo Ze initially had no intention to stay here. But when he thought of Feng Jiu rushing all the way here, he did not say anything against it but held her hand and walked forward.
“Don’t worry, such an old swindler likes to make things unnecessarily complicated.” He said slowly, not wanting her to worry too much about what Old Man Tianji had said.
Feng Jiu, who was still pondering the matter, couldn’t help laughing when she heard him call Old Man Tianji an old swindler. Her tense mood also eased a little and she glared at him with a disapproving smile.
“That’s Old Man Tianji. How can you call him an old swindler? It’s impolite.” She spoke apologetically towards Mo Chen.
Mo Chen’s refined countenance twitched slightly at Xuanyuan Mo Ze’s calling his master an old stick. Seeing Feng Jiu’s smirk, he had no choice but to smile.
