Chapter 5: Delivering Wine

Most of them were fruit wines.

Yellow wine came second.

There was less sake and white wine.

No matter what kind of wine it was, it was excellent in terms of taste and quality. Even Xiao s.h.i.+, who did not like to drink much, would drink a few cups of wine every day before cultivating after tasting this fine wine.

He was like this, so to those who loved wine as much as their lives, the value of these wines was even more obvious.

As long as Elder Qiu was fond of alcohol, he could use this wine to gain favorability from him!

But before that, Xiao s.h.i.+ planned to inquire about Elder Qiu first. At the very least, he had to understand the other party’s personality. After all, in such a chaotic world, there was no lack of overbearing and unreasonable people. If Elder Qiu had such a temperament, he would have to consider it carefully.

Xiao s.h.i.+ first asked the servant disciples who raised the Five-Colored Spirit Tail Sparrows in the forest. These servant disciples had more or less interacted with Elder Qiu and knew his temperament.

Then, Xiao s.h.i.+ began to inquire among the many outer sect disciples.

He realized that Elder Qiu had a good reputation in the sect. He was a Buddhist and would never rely on his status to bully the younger generation. Usually, even if he asked the servant disciples for wine, he would give them the corresponding reward.

He had a good character, but he was a little lazy and alcoholic.

However, Xiao s.h.i.+ was a cautious person. Just the information he obtained was not enough to completely rea.s.sure him. Therefore, he personally contacted Elder Qiu to verify the information he had obtained. Only when he found that the other party was indeed the same as the person he had found out did he feel relieved.

On this day, Xiao s.h.i.+ reported to Elder Qiu about the rearing of the Five-Colored Spirit Tail Sparrow as usual. Elder Qiu was napping on the bamboo chair and was not listening at all.

Xiao s.h.i.+ also knew that this report was only symbolic.

Elder Qiu would never respond, as long as he didn’t kill the Five-Colored Spirit Tail Sparrow. After reporting, Xiao s.h.i.+ did not leave immediately. He coughed lightly and spoke.

“Elder Qiu, I have a pot of wine in my hand. It tastes pretty good. Do you want to try it?”

As soon as he finished speaking, Elder Qiu, who had almost fallen asleep with his eyes closed, immediately opened them and sat up from the bamboo chair. “If you say that, I won’t be sleepy anymore!”

Elder Qiu looked at Xiao s.h.i.+ excitedly, not feeling sleepy at all. He was indeed an alcoholic.

Xiao s.h.i.+ laughed in his heart. He took out the fruit wine he had prepared and handed it over respectfully.

Elder Qiu received it with a smile. First, he uncorked the flask and sniffed it. He immediately perked up. As a veteran drunkard, he could tell from the smell that this pot of wine was very different from the wine he had drunk before.

This made Elder Qiu smile even more. He impatiently picked up the wine jug and took a small sip. As soon as the fruit wine entered his mouth, Elder Qiu’s eyes widened. He felt as if he had been electrocuted. He almost jumped out of his chair.

“This wine!!”

His breathing was rapid and his face was flushed red. His entire body was trembling from excessive excitement. After swallowing the fruit wine in his mouth, he picked up the wine pot and took another sip. He closed his eyes and carefully felt it.

After a long time, Elder Qiu’s eyes reopen with satisfaction, reminiscence, and regret.

“Good wine, really good wine!! This old man has drunk countless times in my life, but I’ve never tasted such delicious fruit wine!” He looked at Xiao s.h.i.+ curiously. “Where did you get this wine? Do you have more?”

Xiao s.h.i.+ smiled.

Elder Qiu’s reaction was exactly as he had expected. Even someone like him who didn’t like to drink was attracted to this fruit wine, let alone an experienced old drunkard. He had already thought of an excuse for Elder Qiu’s question.

“Before I joined the sect, I met an old man selling wine. This wine was bought from that old man at that time. If Elder Qiu likes it, I’ll bring another pot over tomorrow.”

Based on his previous investigations and interactions, Xiao s.h.i.+ already knew that Elder Qiu was not a rude and unreasonable person, so he did not mind revealing that he had more. If the other party had a barbaric and domineering personality, he would not be able to do this.

Such a person would not thank him for the fruit wine he offered. He would only s.n.a.t.c.h it away domineeringly.

This was also the main reason why Xiao s.h.i.+ specially spent time investigating the other party’s personality before offering the wine.

With Elder Qiu’s personality, even if he knew that he still had this fruit wine, he would not use his status as an elder to s.n.a.t.c.h it. He could use this to close the relations.h.i.+p between the two.

The next day, Xiao s.h.i.+ brought a pot of wine for Elder Qiu.

Although it was the same fruit wine, the taste was different from yesterday’s fruit wine.

Elder Qiu was full of praise for this. He tasted it in small mouthfuls and could not bear to drink it too quickly. At this moment, Xiao s.h.i.+ took out an exquisite wine gla.s.s and handed it to Elder Qiu, indicating that using this wine gla.s.s to taste the wine would be more artistic and stylish.

Elder Qiu received it with a bright gaze. He poured in a small cup and took a sip. He was surprised to find that drinking from such a wine cup was indeed different from drinking directly from a wine pot!

To a veteran drunkard like him, drinking was no longer just about the taste. What he drank was about the conception of life. This kind of wine gla.s.s made drinking rose in style, making him feel more comfortable drinking it.

Just like that, Xiao s.h.i.+ would bring a pot of wine to Elder Qiu every day. From the fruit wine at the beginning, to the yellow wine, to the sake and white wine.

It was different every day.

Moreover, the taste of each type of wine could make Elder Qiu unable to stop himself.

During this week, Elder Qiu had drunk all kinds of good wine that he had not drunk for most of his life. He was completely immersed in the joy brought by the wine.

Other than bringing wine to Elder Qiu every day, Xiao s.h.i.+ did not forget to capture the Piebald Worms. Although there were still no Martial-Level items dropped, he still tirelessly killed these Piebald Worms.

Now, more than half of the room was filled with all kinds of items. This made Xiao s.h.i.+ realize that as the number of items increased, he also had to consider the storage of items. Once his room was filled to the brim, there would be no more storage s.p.a.ce.

“If it really doesn’t work, I can only rent a house in the sect.”

Usually, outer sect disciples would each have a room. But he could also rent a house. Xiao s.h.i.+ felt that it was necessary for him to rent a house to store items now that he had more items.

A week pa.s.sed just like that.

Xiao s.h.i.+ continued to bring wine to Elder Qiu as usual. However, today, after Elder Qiu received the wine jug from Xiao s.h.i.+, he did not start drinking like usual.

He set the flask aside. He took a deep look at Xiao s.h.i.+ and said, “I’ve drunk a lot of your wine these days. I don’t like to owe people favors. Tell me, what do you want?”
