Chapter 1429: Tree of Life (3)
“Thank you.” Shen Yanxiao imitated Duan Xues smile to perfection.
“But I say, is it really okay for you to be like this right now I heard that the Elf King is about to choose a wife soon.
If you were to be selected…” Shi Dan did not finish her sentence but everyone knew that once the Elf King had chosen a wife, there was no turning back.
From Shi Dans point of view, Duan Xue had a gentle personality, and she was also very beautiful.
She was also well-mannered.
She could be considered as one of the best among the Saintesses.
“There are many Saintesses who are better than me.
He would not choose me.” Shen Yanxiao smiled.
Duan Xue was the candidate she had internally selected as her third aunt.
How could she let the Elf King snatch her away
“Just pay attention to yourself.
After the Elf King selects his wife, you can reveal your relationship with your lover.” Shi Dan smiled and said.
She had a lively personality and liked gentle women like Duan Xue.
Before the Elf King chose a wife, the Saintesses could not get married on their own.
However, once the Elf King got married, they could marry a male elf from the Silvermoon Guards.
After passing the last two checkpoints with Shi Dan, the spirit beasts and elves did not notice anything amiss with Shen Yanxiao.
Entering the area of the Tree of Life, Shen Yanxiao could see the huge tree right in front of her eyes.
It was so tall that she could not even see the top of the tree.
No wonder even Taotie said that the Tree of Life was huge.
At such a close distance, Shen Yanxiao could feel the purest life force surging in the air.
The life force here was even purer than the seventh floor of the Pure Spirit Tower.
Duan Xue and Shi Dan were responsible for irrigating the Tree of Life.
Every day, they would fetch water from the moonlight spring by the Tree of Life and irrigate the roots of the Tree of Life.
As the Tree of Life was huge, there were more than ten Saintesses responsible for irrigating it.
Shen Yanxiao tried her best to play the role of Duan Xue.
She knew that if any mistakes were to happen, she would not be the only one to suffer.
Even Duan Xue might be implicated.
After observing the Tree of Life at a close distance, Shen Yanxiao finally realized how huge it was.
At the same time, she carefully observed the situation of the Tree of Life.
On the canopy branches, she keenly noticed a few withered leaves.
Such a situation was absolutely abnormal on the Tree of Life.
“Have you noticed it too” Shi Dan stood by Shen Yanxiaos side and looked up at those withered leaves.
“What” Shen Yanxiao asked.
Shi Dan whispered, “The Tree of Life seems to be sick.”
“Why do you say that”
Shi Dan looked around.
Seeing that the other Saintesses were busy with their own things, she said in a small voice, “The Tree of Life has the most tenacious vitality among all the living beings in the world.
It has existed for tens of millions of years, and it had even existed before elves were born.
However, after so many years, I have never heard of any signs of wilting.
However, in the recent hundred or so years, some wilting leaves have begun to appear on the Tree of Life.
Shi Dan swallowed his saliva and said, “A hundred years ago, a magical beast hurt the Tree of Life, and that was why the Tree of Life was in such a state.
That magical beast is currently imprisoned in the dungeon.”
Shen Yanxiao narrowed her eyes.
The Tree of Life was so huge that Taotie could not hurt it with a single bite.
She did not think that the Tree of Life was sick because of Taotie.
