Aspiring to the Immortal Path Chapter 22: Learning From Nature

The young master was delighted. "Interesting, interesting! Why don't you do it and let me have a look, then?"

"I need materials to do it," Tang Jie replied.

"That's no problem. If you need anything, talk with Wen Qing. Tell him that I wanted it. How much time do you need?"

"Ten days to half a month."

"That's too slow!"

"If I had someone to help me, the work would go faster."

"Alright, I'll have a few of them help you. They'll listen to your orders." The young master waved his hand, handing over all his boy servants for Tang Jie to use.

Shi Mo and Shi Meng glanced at each other. How had they become Tang Jie's subordinates in the blink of an eye?

Tang Jie smirked as he bowed and answered, "Yes, Young Master!"

From that point, the boy servants of the Meditation Garden began to work for Tang Jie.

Shi Mo and Shi Meng had originally worried that Tang Jie would use this opportunity to deal with them, but Tang Jie did not. Rather, he used this opportunity to get closer to everyone.

Firming up one's own foundation would always be more important than striking out at one's opponents. Forgiving one's opponents would more easily win respect than beating them down. Tang Jie was well aware of this.

The young master no longer had the boy servants to mess around with, so whenever he was free he would come by to see how Tang Jie was doing, occasionally helping a little himself.

Of course, it actually would have been better if he hadn't helped, and he only added to their work, but nobody dared to question him. As for him, the more he played, the happier he became.

For a time, the garden became the most active place of the Meditation Garden, and it wasn't long before the flower statues began to rise. Tang Jie depicted all sorts of things: humans, toys, pavilions—he made this little flower garden into a world of its own, brimming with fun and interesting things.

Of course, Tang Jie considered what everyone could accept and didn't make anything too unreasonable. He mostly stuck to common objects.

Even so, once the work was done, the Wei Estate was given quite the shock. Even the venerable master, the venerable lady, the master, and the lady all came to take a look.

This was the first time Tang Jie was seeing the venerable master and his wife.

Patriarch Wei Danbai was a middle-aged man with a very dignified appearance, exuding power even when silent. This man placed a heavy emphasis on the rules, so he didn't much like this play from Tang Jie. But the venerable master was rather amused, believing that while this was somewhat playing to the crowd, it was also very clever. The old man had spent too long in this estate and had grown bored with it. Now that he had something so fresh and new, he naturally had to praise Ta

What's this? A possible love interest? Or is it too early for that sort of thing? The author already got me once with the childhood friend >_>
