Realm Lord Di Tai sank into a chair, exhaling deeply.
He looked so tired.
To recover the Immortal Tree’s seedlings, he had utilized every method at his disposal, using up almost all of his true energy and mental force.
But the seedlings remained dormant.
Inside Immortal Chef Little Store, Realm Lord Di Tai could finally relax his nerves and body. That was why he sank into a chair the moment he walked in.
Bu Fang and the restaurant had some magical power that could ease people’s minds, making them feel satisfied and comfortable.
Bu Fang said nothing and just walked into the kitchen.
After some time, he returned with a blue-and-white bowl, which he placed in front of Realm Lord Di Tai. Then, he went to get another one for himself.
The bowls contained Yellow Spring Helplessness Wine.
The cool wine reflected the radiant glow of the light inside the restaurant. Its rich aroma permeated every inch of their mouths, teasing their taste buds.
Realm Lord Di Tai opened his eyes. He looked at the wine with excitement in his eyes.
Realm Lord Di Tai’s compliment came from the bottom of his heart.
Bu Fang’s mouth twitched, but he said nothing. The Yellow Spring Helplessness Wine was the most delicious wine he had made.
If Realm Lord Di Tai did not look so exhausted, Bu Fang wouldn’t have offered him this wine. He didn’t have much of this wine, and the process of brewing it was not easy.
After pouring himself a bowl of wine, Bu Fang put the bottle away.
On the other side, Nethery pulled up a chair, sat down, and looked at Bu Fang.
Bu Fang thought for a moment, then he gave his bowl of wine to Nethery. After that, he poured himself another bowl.
The smell of wine filled the entire restaurant.
Taking a deep breath, Realm Lord Di Tai felt his mind lighten, which made his mood brighten up.
Picking up the wine bowl, he took a sip. The smooth fluid slid down his throat and into his stomach.
The incredibly good aroma lingered in the mouth, and Realm Lord Di Tai couldn’t help but immerse himself in it.
It had been a long time since he had had such good wine.
Bu Fang narrowed his eyes, but the corners of his lip curled up as he took a sip.
Sometimes, calming down and enjoying good wine was a cozy activity.
Nethery held her bowl of wine with both hands. She carefully took a sip, and her red lips parted slightly as she exhaled.
“We’ve got good wine. How come we don’t have anything to go with it?”
Bu Fang furrowed his brows first, then relaxed and smiled. He stood up and walked into the kitchen.
A moment later, the bell above the kitchen door jingled.
Bu Fang carried a dish of kimchi over and placed it onto the table.
“Try and see if this is good enough,” Bu Fang said.
Realm Lord Di Tai was curious. Immediately, he grabbed the chopsticks and picked up a small piece of kimchi.
The kimchi felt crunchy. It was sour and spicy too.
As his teeth sank into the kimchi, the sour juice oozed out. It swirled around his tongue, enveloping his taste buds.
He chewed and swallowed, enjoying the sour and spicy taste of the cabbage, which made every inch of his body feel refreshed.
Realm Lord Di Tai narrowed his eyes in bliss. Having a piece of kimchi and a sip of good wine, this feeling was so awesome that he had no words to describe it.
The three did not say anything more. They just drank the good wine and munched on the kimchi. The atmosphere was quite calm and leisurely.
Xixi pulled out a chair and sat aside, watching the other three enjoy themselves. Her eyes were filled with curiosity.
A long while later, they finally finished their wine and kimchi.
Bu Fang dropped his bowl and exhaled.
Nethery’s nose had become a little red. She enjoyed the spicy taste of the kimchi a lot. When she pulled up a chair, she looked pale, but now, she was blushing.
She looked somewhat cute now.
“Alright, we’ve eaten and drank. Let’s get down to business,” Bu Fang calmly said to Realm Lord Di Tai.
He knew that Realm Lord Di Tai had something important to say, which was why he had come to visit. Otherwise, he wouldn’t have come to find him at such a critical time for the Immortal Cooking Realm.
After eating and drinking his fill, Realm Lord Di Tai felt much better. He seemed to have recovered a bit of his vitality.
He smiled at Bu Fang and said, “Little Bu Bu, you understand me well. After drinking your wine, I figured something out…”
Realm Lord Di Tai rubbed his chin and moved his hand. A moment later, his hand began to emit a golden, sparkling light.
Within his hands were two golden Immortal Tree seedlings, which were filled with thick immortal energy.
The moment the seedlings appeared, the immortal energy swirled and began to permeate the restaurant. “The Immortal Tree’s seedlings?”
Bu Fang looked pensive as he observed Realm Lord Di Tai.
“These things… can’t live.” Realm Lord Di Tai glanced at Bu Fang, forcing a smile on his face.
“Didn’t you say that they’re the living ones?” Bu Fang frowned.
“They’re alive… but they’re not sprouting,” Realm Lord Di Tai replied, rubbing his sleek, golden hair as though he was dealing with a headache. “I feel that they’ve been damaged because of your Bursting Pissing Beef Meatball…”
“Don’t… We’re on the same side. Don’t wield your pot.” Bu Fang cocked his head to one side, looking at him.
He would never admit that the explosion his Bursting Pissing Beef Meatball had wrought was what damaged the Immortal Tree’s seedlings.
He had consulted Realm Lord Di Tai before he did that.
Back then, Realm Lord Di Tai had patted his chest, claiming that nothing would happen to the seedlings.
“Good… If so, just consider it a matter that has nothing to do with you. Anyway, Little Bu Bu… When will you make me several hundred Bursting Pissing Beef Meatballs? I’m going to conquer the universe,” Realm Lord Di Tai said.
“Okay, give me ten Immortal Tree seedlings in exchange,” Bu Fang expressionlessly said.
Realm Lord Di Tai almost vomited blood.
Ten Immortal Tree seedlings? Why don’t you just go to heaven?!
“If you don’t have them, don’t force it… No rush.” Bu Fang looked at Realm Lord Di Tai with disdain.
“Good, now let’s talk business. First, I wanted to embrace and build up some feelings, but you cut it off,” Realm Lord Di Tai said, stroking his hair.
“Spit it out.”
Realm Lord Di Tai nodded. “Okay.”
His hand trembled once, and a gray jar of wine appeared. He then placed the gray jar of wine on the table, blinking at Bu Fang as he did so.
“This wine is the one I’ve meticulously made. I want you to keep it here. Later, I’ll come here more frequently to enjoy some liquor!” said Realm Lord Di Tai. “This wine is as good as the one you’ve just treated us to!”
“Yeah?” Bu Fang was bewildered.
Is that it? That’s the matter he wished to discuss?
The corner of Bu Fang’s mouth twitched, but he remained silent.
He picked up the gray jar of wine and walked into the kitchen, pushing the curtain on the door and making the bell above jingle.
After putting Realm Lord Di Tai’s wine into the cabinet, Bu Fang turned around and walked back to the table.
“Did you keep it safe?” asked Realm Lord Di Tai.
Bu Fang nodded. “Yes, can we talk about business now?”
“Okay. Now that you have stored the wine, I can put my mind at ease. Even if the Immortal Cooking Realm is destroyed, the memory I leave behind will be safe here,” Realm Lord Di Tai said, smiling.
After a moment’s pause, he added, “Little Bu Bu, how do we resolve the issue with the Immortal Tree seedlings?”
Bu Fang said nothing. He just expressionlessly gazed at Realm Lord Di Tai.
Realm Lord Di Tai was filled with regret for a while. Then, he looked up at Bu Fang. “The only method available is to go to Earth Prison and find the Spring of Life. So, Little Bu Bu, can you help me and go there?”
“The Spring of Life?” Bu Fang’s brows furrowed.
Nethery, who was sitting at the side, also frowned. Her eyes turned even darker as she said, “The Spring of Life flows in one of the forbidden lands of Earth Prison, the God Vanishing Mountain. Even if a lesser god goes there, he will possibly die, and you’re asking Bu Fang to go there?”
Realm Lord Di Tai looked downcast. “It’s because I have no other options. The Immortal Cooking Realm can’t be without me. That’s why I can only ask Little Bu Bu for help.”
After a moment, his eyes brightened. “And, of course, Little Bu Bu can take that mangy dog with him. With the mangy dog accompanying him, I’m sure he will be able to take the water from the Spring of Life.”
Lord Dog, who was lying at a corner of the restaurant, yawned before saying, “If Lord Dog goes to the God Vanishing Mountain, you can forget about getting water from the Spring of Life. That crazy woman will destroy the entire place the moment she sees me. That’s why I, Lord Dog, will never enter the God Vanishing Mountain, even by half a step.”
Realm Lord Di Tai’s body stiffened.
“You mangy dog! You only stole the lingerie of that woman in the God Vanishing Mountain, didn’t you? What kind of grudge would exist between you guys?!”
“Shut up. You don’t need to know Lord Dog’s business! Hmph!” Lord Dog lowered his head and began to snore.
Realm Lord Di Tai’s mouth twitched.
“The Immortal Tree seedlings are all in deep sleep. Only the water from the Spring of Life can wake them up, but I can’t leave the Immortal Cooking Realm now.
“Now, the Sacred Realm experts from Nether Prison can’t enter the Immortal Cooking Realm because of the seal. However, as the Immortal Cooking Realm’s declines, the seal will be unable to hold them back. At that time, the Nether Prison will attack the Immortal Cooking Realm, and the entire realm will eventually be destroyed. Once the Immortal Tree’s spirit is conquered, we will have no hope left.
“That’s why I must stay and protect the Immortal Cooking Realm, in case those dogs and cats try to attack…”
Realm Lord Di Tai was sincere and told only the truth.
Unless the Immortal Tree seedlings recovered and sprouted, the Immortal Cooking Realm had to endure this danger.
Realm Lord Di Tai had no choice but to ask Bu Fang for help. The others couldn’t do it, including City Lord Meng Qi and City Lord Zou.
Bu Fang furrowed his brows. “You believe that I can take the water from the Spring of Life?”
“Of course, I believe in you, Little Bu Bu. It’s no different from using a dead horse!” Realm Lord Di Tai replied with confidence.
Bu Fang seemed speechless.
The restaurant was quiet.
Nethery remained silent. She had said all she should. The God Vanishing Mountain was a very dangerous place, a forbidden land in Earth Prison.
If Bu Fang wanted to go, she wouldn’t stop him.
Bu Fang rubbed his chin. Honestly, he didn’t want to go.
But he couldn’t just stand by and watch the Immortal Cooking Realm collapse. Besides, collecting the water from the Spring of Life would benefit him as well.
He, too, had an Immortal Tree seedling in his farmland, and Niu Han San couldn’t wake it up. That was why he might also need to use the water from the Spring of Life on it.
As Bu Fang mulled over it, the system’s solemn voice suddenly echoed in his mind.
“Current task: You have been invited to go to the God Vanishing Mountain in Earth Prison and collect water from the Spring of Life to revive the Immortal Tree seedlings. Task rewards: A fragment of God of Cooking Set; a seedling of Nine Revolution Great Path Tea.”
Bu Fang’s eyes shrank, and he immediately took a deep breath. He couldn’t believe that the system would speak up at this time.
Anyway, it was not the task that got his attention but the rewards.
A fragment of the God of Cooking Set? He hadn’t gathered all the pieces of the God of Cooking Set yet?
Bu Fang was a little bewildered.
He had thought that the White Tiger Heaven Stove was the last piece of the God of Cooking Set. Now, however, it seemed he had been wrong.
This revelation cheered Bu Fang up immensely.
The God of Cooking Set was important to him, so with this sort of reward, he had no complaints.
Moreover, there was another item in the reward list, the Nine Revolution Great Path Tea.
It sounded really awesome.
Rubbing his chin, Bu Fang was lost in thought.
Realm Lord Di Tai looked at Bu Fang expectantly. He had placed all his hope in him.
Suddenly, Bu Fang raised his head and looked at Realm Lord Di Tai. This caused the Realm Lord to shiver, and his breath came in short bursts.
“I agree… to go to Earth Prison’s God Vanishing Mountain to find the Spring of Life.”
Bu Fang’s eyes glowed as he looked at Realm Lord Di Tai.
“But I have a condition!”
