Soon after, the three of them entered a cave.
“Miss Zilan, why do you have to hide(1) if you want to save the orchid?” Sun Hao asked.
Hua Zilan sighed quietly, “Young Master may not know, what we want to save is my mother’s orchid!”
“My mother is the lord of the Hundred Flowers Valley, and regards this orchid as her life, and ordinary people are not allowed to approach this cave at all!”
“If she learnt that I’m bringing Young Master over, I’m afraid you will never be allowed to act!”
Hua Zilan sighed again when she said that.
“This orchid is now supported by formations, and dozens of elders take turns to infuse immortal power every day! However, the formation can’t stop the orchid’s withering. These days, my mother’s mental and physical strength have become haggard, and she looks like she aged thousands of years old!”
Having said that, Hua Zilan looked sad and lowered her head.
Sun Hao nodded slightly when he heard this.
I see! Hua Zilan is still a filial girl. Naturally there is no problem to help her. It just so happens that I also need to do some experimentation.
“Let’s go, Miss Zilan!” Sun Hao said.
“Young Master, thank you, please come inside!”
Hua Zilan led the way, and the three of them went inside.
“Not good!” Suddenly, Hua Zilan’s face changed drastically, and she moved back quickly. She took Sun Hao and Huang Rumeng and hid behind a stone.
“Hide!” Hua Zilan muttered some words and three talismans instantly ignited. Their figures disappeared.
“Valley Master, are you okay!” A voice came from inside the cave. Immediately afterward, a middle-aged woman helped a white-haired old woman and walked step by step.
“It’s okay, just let go!” The old woman waved her hand, indicating that she was okay. Suddenly, she stopped, looked at Sun Hao’s group location, and couldn’t help but frown slightly.
With a move of Huang Rumeng’s thoughts, three waves of qi enveloped the three of them. After taking a look, the old woman withdrew her gaze and walked out.
“Palace Master(2), what’s wrong with you?”
“It’s okay, it should be due to my lack of strength, let’s go!”
When the two of them disappeared, Sun Hao’s group gradually emerged.
Hua Zilan patted her chest, showing a look of fear, “Scared me to death, I was almost spotted by mother! No, mother shouldn’t be here to release her immortal power at this time! What happened?”
After thinking about it, Hua Zilan’s face changed slightly, and without thinking about it, she ran in. Sun Hao and Huang Rumeng followed closely behind.
After a while, they came to a cave. The cave was not big, but it was very smooth. A barrier shrouded the center and blocked everything. In the center of the barrier, there was a pond of a few meters in radius. An orchin was planted on a quare mount next to the pond.
A wave of immortal power poured into the orchid from all directions. The orchid looks verdant and full of vitality.
‘What should I do? Mother turned on the formation! There is no way I will be able to break it with my strength!’ Hua Zilan looked sad and worried.
At the moment she was stunned, she realized that Sun Hao had already reached the barrier.
“Young Master…” She just shouted but the formation was broken immediately.
Hua Zilan’s eyes widened, she couldn’t believe it.
‘It was physically broken? Young Master’s strength is too terrifying, right? The rumors are really true! So amazing!’ Hua Zilan looked at Sun Hao with a face full of worship.
Sun Hao didn’t know anything about everything behind him. At this moment, he stood in front of the orchid, frowning slightly.
“It looks verdant, but the roots are actually rotten. I think it won’t last long! Let it take root first, then water and fertilize it!”
After some thinking, Sun Hao had a plan. First, he took out a hoe, dug a few holes around the orchid, took the root powder, poured it into the hole, and then buried it with soil.
He was just done when the orchid instantly withered and turned yellow. Half of the green leaf was gone.
Sun Hao completely ignored this scene. Then, he took out the fertilizer, poured it into the soil, poured a half bottle of spring water, and stood up.
Hua Zilan stood on the spot, looking at the yellow orchid dumbfoundedly.
Two lines of tears unconsciously ran down the corner of her eyes.
It’s over, it’s over! The orchid is dead! When mother saw it, she would be overwhelmed with sadness. How can this be done?
Hua Zilan stood in place, her face tangled.
“Who is it?”
Hua Zilan was awakened by the loud shout. They saw an old white-haired woman came with dozens of elders hurriedly. This old white-haired woman was Hua Tong, Hua Zilan’s mother.
There was a wave of anger on their faces. Staring at Sun Hao and Huang Rumeng as if they were aboth to swallow them.
“Mother, it’s me, it has nothing to do with Young Master!”
Hua Zilan stood up straight and stood in front of Hua Tong.
Hua Tong looked at Hua Zilan, the corners of her mouth twitched, and her body trembled with anger.
“Unfilial child, unfilial child, do you know what sin you have done?”
Huatong pointed at Hua Zilan, her fingers trembled, she staggered and almost fell to the ground.
“Palace Master!” A group of elders lifted Huatong up, all worried.
“Mother!” Hua Zilan’s tears fell, holding Huatong, “Mother, are you okay?”
Afterwards, Hua Zilan whispered in Hua Tong’s ear, “Mother, that Young Master is…” She was not able to finish her sentence.
“Don’t call me mother!” Hua Tong directly interrupted the Hua Zilan.
“Do you know what disaster you’re getting into?” Hua Tong pointed at Hua Zilan, her voice trembling in agitation.
“Tie her up!” Hua Tong ordered softly. Several female elders rushed forward, and after a series of work, they tied Hua Zilan’s hands behind her back.
Hua Tong pointed at her right hand, and Hua Zilan was instantly sealed, unable to do anything. She couldn’t even utter a word.
Hua Tong turned around and walked towards Sun Hao with dozens of elders. There was no concealment of killing intent in her eyes. Hua Tong stood in front of Sun Hao, staring at him coldly.
“Since Hua Zilan brought you here, you shouldn’t be blamed! The little girl is reckless and has her own family law to deal with it!”
“However, you two, why do you come to my Flower Immortal Valley. What is your purpose?” Hua Tong looked at Sun Hao with surging cold killing intent.
Huang Rumeng was about to speak, but Sun Hao waved his hand to stop her. “Palace Master, the purpose is very simple, we are here to buy flowers! Miss Zilan is a filial girl. She is worried about her mother and wants to share some of her burden! I was very touched, so I was invited by Miss Zilan to help her save the orchid!”
Sun Hao’s expression was calm, and full of demeanor.
Since the other party did not use violence, naturally neither would he. Otherwise, maybe the Palace Master would already turn into a puff of smoke.
Huatong looked up to the sky and laughed, her voice filled with grief.
“Saving the orchids, whichever orchids you save, they will be given to you…”
Before she finished speaking, Hua Tong stood still, motionless. Her mouth opened widely, shaking up and down, without uttering a word for a long time.
The whole field was quiet in an instant.
Everyone was shocked.
