He seemed to be very familiar with everything in the palace, and after passing through a massive hall and several long corridors, he arrived in a peaceful courtyard.
All types of exotic flowers and plants were growing inside the courtyard, and there were two women in palatial dresses standing beside the entrance with silver veils over their faces.
The women had skin as fair as jade, and they were very elegant, but their auras were quite ethereal and unfathomable.
"Greetings, I've come to pay the palace master a visit," the daoist priest said as he extended a polite salute toward the two women.
One of them women stepped gracefully off to the side to avoid his salute, and said, "We wouldn't dare to accept your salute, Master Li. Please go in; our palace master has been waiting for quite some time now."
"Hehe, then I'll be going on ahead," the daoist priest replied with a smile before entering the courtyard.
After passing through a fragrant garden of flowers, a small yet lush meadow appeared up ahead.

How about I retire and nominate you as my successor?" the woman asked, and even though she wore an amused expression, she gave off an indescribable sense of authority.
"Ahem, my grandmaster would never agree to something like that, Palace Master. Even though the region that our Golden Han Immortal Palace governs over is inconsequential in the context of the entire immortal region, it is the foundation of our Nine OriginDaoist Temple, and countless immortal citizens reside in this area, so the position of palace master can't just be handed down to anyone," the daoist priest replied as he shook his head vigorously.
"Hmph, you sure know how to flatter me. Your master and all of your martial uncles possess superior powers to mine; why aren't any of them the palace master? I did become a disciple of your grandmaster's later than they did, but I've already stayed in this immortal palace for over 100,000 years;
