Chapter 15 Dare To Play A Little Trick, And Even Dare To Go Overboard!
Fang Jinyu was sure of it because he remembered that the female lead, Su Yier, had an old bootlicker... An aged Nascent Soul stage Grandmaster who liked Su Yier had repeatedly warned her to be aware of a few things before she broke through the Nascent Soul stage. One of the warnings stated that if anything went wrong during the formation of the nascent soul and the breaking of one's core, one's nascent soul would escape and be split from the body. The worst case would be being directly reincarnated.
Although there was a problem with breaking the core to form the nascent soul, which would cause one to be unable to break through the Nascent Soul stage, one would still consider achieving the stage. Thus, heaven and earth would give cultivators who had reached such a stage three chances.
In other words, one could reincarnate three times.
The little girl in front of him looked like she had reincarnated after her core was broken when forming her nascent soul.
Fang Jinyu didn't have much to tell her. He only brought her back to Mount Xiaohe and taught her how to control the array outside the immortal estate. After that, he started his closed-door cultivation.
He had resided in his immortal estate for some time even though he had left Mount Xiaohe. Hence, he naturally would not abandon it.
Hence, Fang Jinyu had spent thousands of spirit stones to form an array.
It was called the mountain formation.
It used the power of the mountain to form a defense array, and Foundation Establishment stage cultivators could only break it.
The array just required enough spirit stones for maintenance. It didn't need the cultivator to use its inner energy to maintain the array. Hence, even mortals could use the formation.
According to Fang Jinyu's knowledge, such arrays would be used in the mortal world's imperial court, the residences of high officials, and the homes of aristocratic families.
Afterward, Fang Jinyu started his closed-door cultivation.
Back then, Fang Jinyu had never had the chance to try cultivating with the help of elixirs. However, he could finally experience the joy of cultivation after taking one elixir after another.
At the same time, he finally understood why the prices of the elixirs were so high.
Aside from hot sales, the elixirs' demand outstripped supply. The fundamental reason was that the cultivation base was the foundation of a cultivator! Although a good spirit tool was indeed powerful, would it help one's cultivation?
Cultivators often had to cultivate for a long time. However, the lifespan of a cultivator was limited. A cultivator's primary goal should be to increase its cultivation base significantly.
Half a month later, Fang Jinyu ended his closed-door cultivation.
Fang Jinyu had broken through rank 2 in the Foundation Establishment stage much earlier than he expected. His cultivation base wasn't high among the Foundation Establishment stage cultivators. However, it was considered a good result for a cultivator of his age without any background.
Many Foundation Establishment stage cultivators without any background could only break through to rank 2 in the Foundation Establishment stage in their seventies.
Afterward, Fang Jinyu sold a portion of the remaining Mini Entry-Level Elixir for spirit stones and gave the others to the Tianling Sect for merit points.
It was because those who wanted to borrow the prescription of a Foundation Establishment stage elixir and the corresponding right to exchange for spirit herbs had to do so in batches.
Fang Jinyu had only received the most basic of authorities.
It was also why Fang Jinyu didn't refine the better Spirit Summoning Elixir but instead refined the Mini Entry-Level Elixir, which was only suitable for the cultivators who ranked 1 in the Foundation Establishment stage. If Fang Jinyu wanted to refine the Spirit Summoning Elixir, he would have to increase the success rate of refining several pills similar to the Mini Entry-Level Elixir to 30%!
In other words, he had to become a standard Foundation Establishment Stage Alchemist.
After all, it was the fundamental reason why the Tianling Sect encouraged their disciples to cultivate alchemical skills and provided them with all kinds of conveniences and benefits!
Fang Jinyu exchanged some merit points because the spirit herbs needed to refine elixirs, like the Spirit Summoning Elixir, could only be exchanged for merit points.
In addition, cultivators who ranked 2 in the Foundation Establishment stage could only cultivate the great divine powers of the supreme wind-thunder scripture. The merit points could exchange most of the spiritual items required to cultivate the power.
As for the remaining items that he could not exchange for, Fang Jinyu was prepared to search for them in the Lingdu Secret Realm.
Half a month passed by quickly. Fang Jinyu had been waiting for the day of the opening of the Lingdu Secret Realm. He could not help but have a complicated feeling. The chance of entering the Lingdu Secret Realm had nearly killed him back then. But now, although he had indirectly offended a lovesick Core Formation stage cultivator, the other party couldn't do anything to him as long as he stayed in the Tianling Sect.
Nobody dared to disobey the rules set by the Nascent Soul stage Grandmaster.
When the sect leader summoned him, Fang Jinyu took the opportunity to ask and received an expected answer.
Moreover, the sect leader had also hinted that the Grandmaster wasn't in charge of the sect. The Grandmaster never interfered with the sect's management, was more easy-going, and did not put on any airs. He would even provide a few small opportunities to the Qi Condensation stage disciples when he was happy. However, there was a premise—disciples must not violate the rules set by the Grandmaster!
It involved an incident when the Nascent Soul stage Grandmaster was young, but the sect master didn't talk much about it.
Perhaps the sect master didn't know about the incident, or he didn't dare to say it.
The opening and closing of the Lingdu Secret Realm happened on the same day, so Fang Jinyu didn't have to prepare anything. Fang Jinyu arrived early without concealing his cultivation base. Then he activated the Discipline Pearl.
The Lingdu Secret Realm was located in the middle of two mountain peaks. Usually, nothing could be seen there. It was said that a Nascent Soul stage Grandmaster had accidentally obtained a magical item there and then built it up.
There were only a few people here at the moment. There were only three of them, and he knew two by chance.
It was because they were like the former Fang Jinyu. Their parents sacrificed themselves for the Tianling Sect.
However, the two were also different from the former Fang Jinyu. They both had some background in the sect. One married into an aristocratic family, and the other married a woman from an aristocratic family.
Because they both had Core Formation stage cultivators, the two aristocratic families were out of the ordinary.
Seeing that it was someone the former Fang Jinyu knew, Fang Jinyu thought about it and felt it would be rude not to greet them. Hence, he approached them and cupped his fists, saying, "Senior Brother Zhang, Senior Sister Xu."
"Greetings, Martial Uncle Fang." However, the two of them were shocked and quickly greeted him.
Although the two had the support of their noble family background, they didn't dare be arrogant toward a Foundation Establishment stage cultivator since they were just ranked 9 in the Qi Condensation stage unless they were the direct descendants of the aristocratic family.
"Please don't be so polite. Since we've known each other for seven or eight years, although we can't be considered playmates since childhood, we can still be considered friends, right?" Fang Jinyu said.
After all, it was easy to use polite words.
"In that case, we will call you Brother Fang. You will call us Junior Brother and Junior Sister, alright?" Xu Tingyu's eyes turned as she spoke gently.
Fang Jinyu didn't mind and said, "Alright!"
Seeing Fang Jinyu nod his head, Xu Tingyu could not help but reveal a look of joy. Then she asked, "Brother Fang, I heard you understood the storm raging technique and accumulated your inner energy to break through?"
They all knew the former Fang Jinyu had been rewarded with a high-tier magic spell. Moreover, the difference in inner energy between peers was clear once they showed their techniques.
The inner energy cultivated by the high-tier magic spell was undoubtedly better than the inner energy cultivated by low-tier magic spell.
Xu Tingyu's question piqued Zhang Wenye's interest. However, he remained silent and only looked at Fang Jinyu.
"You're right. I'm not exaggerating, but nobody in the sect understands the Qi Condensation stage storm raging technique as I do." By facing the two pairs of probing eyes, Fang Jinyu feigned arrogance. He intended to do it since there were rumors of such a breakthrough method, but it was only in the talks!
Fang Jinyu had done it to avoid unnecessary trouble and wanted to see if he could steal some of the opportunities. It had nothing to do with Su Yier, but it was closely related to her crazy master!
Fang Jinyu didn't dare take revenge publicly. A cultivator ranked 2 in the Foundation Establishment stage would be courageous and stupid to go against a Core Formation stage cultivator.
However, Fang Jinyu dared to play a little trick, and he even dared to go overboard!
