‘Lucky us! Lucky us!’
The Holy Emperor and Luo Shiyu silently cried in joy.
‘I knew bringing the expert the letter was the right decision! When the expert’s happy, anything he offers is a treasure!’
‘This ice is actually edible! And it has a faint yellow color!’
‘More importantly, this ice was made by the Ice-Crystal!’
‘This is definitely made with a special technique. It’s probably food for Immortals!’
Li Nianfan did not care about their reactions. He could not wait any longer. He licked his ice pop.
Instantly, a cooling feeling spread all over his body, refreshing his mind. One word—cool!
The ingredient he used to make the ice pop was tangerine. Its sweet and sour taste stimulated his taste buds. Li Nianfan closed his eyes, feeling the greatest pleasure in his mind and body.
This feeling…so nostalgic!
Seeing that Li Nianfan was enjoying himself so much, the Holy Emperor did not waste any more time. He raised the ice pop to his mouth.
Instantly, a dark chill washed over him. The Cold Qi had solidified, floating in front of his eyes. Even after cultivating for so many years, it still sent chills all over his body!
It was indeed the chill of the Ice-Crystal. So terrifying!
The Holy Emperor took a deep breath, he moved his Spiritual Qi to its peak. His face darkened, as if facing his greatest enemy.
This was the Ice-Crystal after all, very deadly! Of course, he had to be cautious!
After some mental preparation, he cautiously stuck out his tongue and touched the ice pop with the tip of his tongue.
At the point of contact, the Holy Emperor could feel an extreme chill surrounding his tongue. Instantly, his tongue was covered with white frost.
As he was about to use his Spiritual Qi to melt the frost, the chill from the ice pop intensified, almost freezing up all the Spiritual Qi inside his body. It even slowed down his transformation of Qi.
Then, his face changed color. Before he could even think, he felt his blood freeze. Layers of frost coated his vessels, making it difficult for him to breathe.
Though the changes on his face were not apparent, he had already frozen up like an ice sculpture on the inside!
How could the chill of the Ice-Crystal be so intense!?
His pupils dilated. He was beyond shocked and overwhelmed with intense terror as his life could vanish at any moment!
Besides thinking, he was unable to do anything else!
Just as his consciousness was about to freeze over as well, a sense of sour-sweetness suddenly burst in his mouth. This made him realize that the ice pop he licked had begun to melt inside his mouth. He felt as if he was bathing in an ice bath. It was no longer attacking his taste buds. Instead, it was like a refreshing breeze, making him feel relaxed.
Swiftly after, the cold melted liquid flowed down his throat, shivering his cells and cleansing every pore.
The Holy Emperor’s body jolted. He felt as if his entire body had been renewed. Even the parts in his body that had frozen melted like winter into spring. His vitality started to recover.
He could not help moaning as the fatigue in him instantly disappeared.
He swore that this ice pop was the most precious and delicious thing he had ever eaten. Even more precious than any elixir!
He took a deep breath and he could still feel the lingering icy feeling in his mouth. His Spiritual Qi not only recovered, but it became even stronger than before, making it easier for him to control.
His lips parted slightly. He did not know how to describe his current feelings.
The chill from the ice pop was able to freeze the Spiritual Qi inside his body!
At this instance, he felt joy from within!
So…this ice pop was a type of trial!
At first, it froze his body and made him feel the extreme chill of despair. Following that, the melted ice pop gradually became sweet and sour—delicious and nourishing—restoring his body to its peak!
From the first taste, one would feel an impending death, but if one were to persist through it, it would restore one’s vitality, along with many other benefits!
That’s right! A rainbow would only appear after a storm! One had to go through pain to understand how precious sweetness was.
There was no free lunch in the world! One had to have fearless courage to earn opportunities!
‘Mr. Li was obviously testing our hearts and souls! What a good and considerate man!’
By now, not only his Spiritual Qi, but he felt his mind had been baptized as well.
The Holy Emperor looked at his ice pop blankly. Who could have imagined this ordinary-looking food would contain such a huge opportunity in it!
Food of the Immortals! This was indeed the food of the Immortals!
His heart was beating rapidly as his respect for the ice pop intensified. He almost had no courage to continue eating. Although this ice pop was an opportunity, every lick would freeze his body to death. This required a huge amount of courage!
The taste was good, it was just rather risky.
The delicious food of the expert was indeed not that easy to eat!
The Holy Emperor stole a glimpse of Li Nianfan. He saw that he was eating it with a calm face. The ice pop in his hand was almost gone. He was even chewing the ice!
This struck more fear in the Holy Emperor as he looked at Li Nianfan with the utmost respect.
One small lick of the ice pop required him to withhold his entire cultivation, yet the expert felt nothing. He was even chewing it!
Terrifying! So terrifying!
Beside him, Luo Shiyu jolted as her face turned pale. She staggered.
She was the least cultivated so her experience was more intense than the others. The moment she licked it, she felt her consciousness freeze. If it was not for the final burst of delicious sour-sweetness, she would have turned into an ice-sculpture.
Luo Shiyu looked at the ice pop in her hand, confused by her love-hate relationship with this delicious food.
As for Daji, her reaction was more normal. Every once in a while, she would stick out her small tongue to lick it gently. Then, she would close her eyes as if she was savoring the taste.
Looking at the Holy Emperor and Luo Shiyu, Li Nianfan could not help saying, “The both of you are eating so slowly. The ice pop’s melting.”
‘Is Mr. Li looking down on our lack of cultivation…?’
The Holy Emperor toughened up and took a big lick of the ice pop. Instantly, his entire body froze up. A chilling wave washed over him, making him tremble. However, he did not dare to show his reaction and forced a smile instead. “Yum! So yummy!”
Luo Shiyu also took another lick. She did not lick as much as the Holy Emperor as she did not want to die from it.
Li Nianfan smiled and shook his head.
He thought it was probably their first time eating an ice pop, so they could not bite into it. He remembered his first time eating an ice pop back then. He wanted to take his time to enjoy it, so he only licked half of the ice pop while the other half melted, resulting in a mess.
