2516 One Month’s Time!
Lin Yuan did not waste any time and proceeded to ask the Earth’s Sacred Fruit, “If you don’t have to worry about resources, how long will it take you to produce your two fruits?”
When the Earth’s Sacred Fruit heard Lin Yuan’s question, it immediately replied, “If you can provide me with such pure elemental energy like you just did, and as much of it as I need, I will be able to bear fruits after the sun travels through the sky another 30 times!”
Elation immediately spread across Lin Yuan’s face.
The Earth’s Sacred Fruit’s fruits would be able to ripen so quickly!
If it could bear ripened fruits within a month, it meant that Lin Yuan would be able to gain another two Afterlife Realm experts within a month!
“All you need to do is be loyal to me. Not only will you not have to worry about resources, but I will also make sure you’ll be comfortable. Stick with Red Thorn! It won’t do anything to you unless you try something you ought not to.”
The Earth’s Sacred Fruit was not an honest creature. If it was, it would not have been able to take control of three pinnacle Samsara Realm Dictators who were all much stronger than it.
Lin Yuan could not feel assured leaving such a sly fellow in the hands of anyone, even Eternal Source. It would be better to keep it where he could see it.
The Earth’s Sacred Fruit trembled, but there was nothing it could do. It did not believe it could change his decision, so it had no choice but to resign itself.
After witnessing Lin Yuan’s strength, the Earth’s Sacred Fruit had wiped all schemes from its mind.
Furthermore, joining Lin Yuan would allow it to gain resources and protection. This seemed like a rather good decision.
“Yes, Lord! I will do as you say!”
After receiving the Earth’s Sacred Fruit’s response, Lin Yuan gave it numerous heavenly-maiden-grade elemental pearls to absorb at its own pace. He also told the Earth’s Sacred Fruit to inform him immediately once it was done with this batch so he could provide it with even more.
When the Earth’s Sacred Fruit saw the many heavenly-maiden-grade elemental pearls, it became certain that its own grade would be unaffected even if it gave its fruits to Lin Yuan. It would even be able to reach the Afterlife Realm itself and enter the next cycle of fruit-bearing.
But when it thought about its own situation, the Earth’s Sacred Fruit could not help but feel rather regretful.
Each time it produced fruits, its type would change. This meant that the type of elemental energy it needed to absorb would also change.
The Earth’s Sacred Fruit did not see this as a good thing.
Lin Yuan might possess pure earth-elemental energy, but there was no sign that he also possessed such pure elemental energy of other types.
The Earth’s Sacred Fruit decided to tell Lin Yuan about its situation.
This was not because it wanted Lin Yuan to know more about it but because it hoped that he would be able to obtain the type of elemental energy it needed before its next fruit-bearing cycle.
“Lord, my situation is rather special. After each time that I bear fruits, the type of elemental energy that I will need next will change. I hope that you will help me to make advance preparations. Otherwise, the speed at which I produce fruits will be affected!”
Eternal Source immediately understood what the Earth’s Sacred Fruit’s aim was. So did Lin Yuan.
An expression of surprised happiness immediately appeared on Lin Yuan’s face.
Ever since Lin Yuan attained the Earth’s Sacred Fruit’s loyalty, he had been pondering over an issue. It was the issue of the Earth’s Sacred Fruit’s type and, thus, whether he would only be able to allow Samsara Realm Dictators from the subterranean world to absorb the Earth’s Sacred Fruit’s fruits from now on.
If that were the case, it would lead to the faction of his subterranean subordinates gaining power. This would cause the Samsara Realm Dictators from other dimensional worlds to think he was biased.
This was not what Lin Yuan wanted.
Luckily, the Earth’s Sacred Fruit was different than what he originally thought.
If its type changed continuously, Lin Yuan would be able to use it on Dictators from every dimensional world.
Lin Yuan placed the Earth’s Sacred Fruit in the Spirit Lock spatial zone and shipped it to the marsh world.
He thought that Blue Umber and the three pinnacle Samsara Realm Dictators who had gone off to cleanse their bodies would be back not long after the Earth’s Sacred Fruit became loyal to him.
Yet, two whole days had passed, and there was still no sign of them.
Lin Yuan could not help but feel his patience waning.
Just how many impurities were there in their bodies that they needed such a long time to be fully cleansed?
Just as Lin Yuan was about to send Eternal Source out to investigate, Blue Umber led the three men back to him. Her face was pale as a sheet, and Lin Yuan thought she looked like someone who had just had a serious bout of stomach flu.
When Blue Umber saw Lin Yuan, her eyes filled with tears. She had initially intended to establish connections with the three men, but after witnessing such a repulsive sight, she had completely given up on her original intention.
After drinking the nectar that Lin Yuan had given them, the three men had started to vomit and were also afflicted by diarrhea. The body of water that Blue Umber had created had been completely contaminated by what they expelled from their bodies.
Blue Umber had assumed that it was her lucky day that she had been able to meet with them in private. But now, she saw herself as unlucky instead.
If Light Green Umber, who was extremely sensitive to cleanliness, had gone instead, she would have died on the spot.
Besides the repulsive sight, the smell had also been unbearable. However, Blue Umber had been unable to leave to escape it. She not only had to watch them, but she had to continue producing water as well. She was certain that the nightmarish experience would haunt her for at least the next century.
At first, the three of them had been embarrassed about vomiting and going through diarrhea in front of a female Samsara Realm Dictator. But it did not take long before they discovered just how beneficial this nectar Lin Yuan had given them was.
Not only were they cleansed of the impurities within their bodies, but they were now free of the Earth’s Sacred Fruit’s control as well. Their bodies were now completely clean.
They could clearly sense that their powers had increased drastically after all the impurities had been cleansed. Even their potential had been raised.
The three of them hurriedly thanked Lin Yuan.
“Lord, thank you for your reward. We will definitely be loyal to you!”
After Lin Yuan gave them the Possess Star Intelligent Dark Clouds, he said, “Gather all of the power from the subterranean world here in the hole in the ground. Then, begin gathering resources. A month later, I will return to check and reward you according to what you’ve achieved.”
The three of them immediately sprung to attention when they heard that Lin Yuan was going to reward them.
In a way, it could be said that the Silver Stamen Gold Luster Cassia nectar was also Lin Yuan’s reward for them. From the Silver Stamen Gold Luster Cassia nectar’s effects, the three of them knew that Lin Yuan’s rewards had to be extraordinary!
