"verdure glider, i am sure you have already found out why i have summoned you here. now that the high humans have regrouped, the time is ripe for us to initiate the war of the heavens. since you possess the will of the heavens, i hope you can take on this huge responsibility!" lu fu was a remnant soul. therefore, he could not be out for long and needed to get straight to the point.

"as you wish, young master!" jiang fei immediately nodded.
"very well! you may find zhao sheng now!" lu fu waved his hand as he turned into a white light and swiftly vanished.
"ding! the high humans' common leader, lu fu, has issued a key story quest to you: gather the nine cauldrons!"
as the system notification was heard, there was an additional quest in jiang fei's list of quests. story quests like these did not require players to physically accept. such quests were issued by force and could not be forfeited.
quest name: gather the nine cauldrons!
current stage: obtain the cauldron of charm from zhao sheng.
quest reward: unknown!
the quest descriptions were fairly simple. however, the information provided was more than enough for jiang fei.
"master, do you know where uncle zhao sheng might be?" jiang fei asked ou yezi after they had both left the grand palace.
"him? he might probably be in the garden at the back," ou yezi replied after some thought.
"master, will you go with me?" jiang fei tried to ask. if ou yezi showed up with jiang fei, zhao sheng would probably make it easier for jiang fei. after all, zhao sheng would definitely respect his older brother.
"this is your mission. if you can't even complete this, how will you take on the huge responsibility of the war of the heavens?" ou yezi waved his hand as he turned around and walked away.
"fine then. i'll do it myself!" jiang fei shrugged as he walked toward the garden in the wonderland in the clouds.
although jiang fei was not too familiar with the wonderland in the clouds, he had a small map to guide him which all players possessed. even if the map did not show him everything around him, it still worked well as long as jiang fei still possessed some sense of direction.
after making a few wrong turns, and having explored two-thirds of the wonderland in the clouds, jiang fei finally found the location of the garden.
after entering the garden, jiang fei noticed that a man was admiring the flowers at the center of the garden. this person was none other than zhao sheng whom jiang fei had met once in the past.
"uncle!" jiang fei called out from afar.
"shhh…" zhao sheng waved his hand at jiang fei, signaling for jiang fei to lower his voice.
"what's the matter, uncle? there's no one around here," jiang fei asked with a soft voice as he got closer to zhao sheng. jiang fei had scanned around to make sure that zhao sheng was the only person around. nobody else would be disturbed.
"i was afraid that you would wake my flowers up!" zhao sheng glared at jiang fei.
"wake flowers up? can flowers even hear?" jiang fei was dumbfounded. there was a peach tree in front of zhao sheng with lots of beautiful pink flowers hanging on each branch.
unexpectedly, as soon as jiang fei spoke, a few petals fell to the ground. the flower petals quickly turned into a gust of tornado which circled around jiang fei before falling to the ground. as soon as the petals dispersed, a beautiful woman appeared in front of jiang fei.
"tell me, young man. how could i possibly not hear you?" the woman pointed her finger at jiang fei's voice.
"this…" jiang fei was taken by surprise. he had no idea what was going on. however, jiang fei suddenly turned toward zhao sheng. "uncle, is this my aunt?"
as soon as jiang fei spoke, zhao sheng felt awkward. men and fairies were never supposed to be together. although he and peach blossom fairy were indeed a couple, it was inappropriate for jiang fei to blatantly point it out.
"ahh! young one, you are too sweet! come over here! i have a gift for you!" jiang fei's words had clearly pleased peach blossom fairy. she was initially upset at jiang fei. however, when she looked at jiang fei now, she was smiling from cheek to cheek.
peach of evolution (spiritual fruit, holy item)
consume: increase 4 levels immediately!
remark: you can only use it to advance to level 95!
"woah!" jiang fei nearly dropped the gift from peach blossom fairy. she was way too generous. although this was probably a fruit which she had cultivated on her own, it was still a holy item which probably did not come by easily.
in fact, the item had come to jiang fei at the best timing imaginable. he was currently at level 91. if he ate the peach now, he would reach level 95. it was an ideal scenario.
however, zhao sheng was still feeling awkward about the situation. the peach blossom fairy was using this opportunity to force him to marry her.
"tell me, when are you going to marry me?" peach blossom fairy asked as she grabbed at zhao sheng's collars.
"the time is not right yet…" zhao sheng replied awkwardly. he and the peach blossom fairy belonged to two different worlds. he was already under great pressure for being with her. if he married her openly, his status as one of the four sages of the heavens would be questioned by the masses.
"cut the crap. when will you marry me? give me an exact date!" this question had been bugging the peach blossom fairy for a very long time. now that she had a chance, she would not let it go easily.
"little bastard, you have put me in a difficult situation!" zhao sheng glared at jiang fei angrily. meanwhile, jiang fei pretended as if he did not know what was going on.
"we'll talk about this later. there's a young man in front of us!" zhao sheng laughed dismissively as he turned around to face jiang fei. "you must be here for the cauldron of the ancient kingdom. alright! complete the quest, and i will give it to you!"
"uncle, please tell me what to do!" jiang fei immediately nodded. he was indeed here for that sole purpose.
"do you know what cauldron i possess?" zhao sheng asked.
"yes! it's the cauldron of charm," jiang fei answered immediately.
"very well! i will test your charm!" zhao sheng smiled devilishly as he tossed a small cauldron over to jiang fei. "this is the cauldron of charm. i want you to get fifty girls to confess their love for you in front of the cauldron of charm within two hours. they must do so from the bottom of their hearts. otherwise, i will take the cauldron away!"
zhao sheng was clearly exacting revenge on jiang fei. if not for jiang fei's words, zhao sheng would not be under such pressure to marry peach blossom fairy. therefore, he had intentionally given jiang fei a difficult quest. within two hours? it was perhaps even difficult for a womanizer to accomplish the task with one woman, let alone fifty.
however, jiang fei did not seem concerned by the quest at all. "that's all? i thought it would be a very difficult quest!"
there were already close to fifty of the naga priestesses in the demon dragon fortress. on top of that, there were still other ladies like nina and hua mulan. gathering fifty of those women was too easy a task for jiang fei. he did not even have to make use of the saint's guard. therefore, this might be a difficult quest to others, but not to jiang fei.
"young man, stop boasting. if you can't complete it, i will take the cauldron away immediately!" zhao sheng laughed coldly.
"uncle, don't worry. this cauldron is mine now. you will never get it back!" jiang fei chuckled. before he left, he turned around once more. "uncle, aunt, have fun with your time together. remember to invite me to your wedding. i'll prepare congratulatory gifts for you!"
