Chapter 42 Having More Female Leads
Chapter 42 Having More Female Leads
Ling Wutong nodded her tiny head half-understandingly when she heard Fang Jinyu's response. Afterward, she seemed to realize she had spoken to a strange man for too long. Her little face blushed again, and she said, "Senior Brother, since my cultivation base is low, it's not convenient for me to stay here. You can continue your conversation. My brother will be here soon."
"Alright. Take care, Junior Sister Ling."
Fang Jinyu nodded as his eyes twinkled. He started to feel curious about Ling Wutong and thought, "What exactly did this girl go through to become the detestable female antagonist as described in the book?"
"Don't tell me it's because love can easily make one's head go dizzy?!"
Fang Jinyu, a singleton, felt a chill in his heart.
Fang Jinyu pondered seriously, "Perhaps I can consider the ruthless cultivation method…"
The ruthless cultivation method wasn't heartless.
The ruthless cultivation method wasn't devoid of humanity. Instead, it was about abandoning all useless emotions.
If he developed any feelings, no matter if he was happy or sad, he could immediately cut them off with the wisdom sword.
However, he had a problem with the cultivation method.
It was difficult to refine the wisdom sword!
It was a virtual sword that was extremely particular about one's great wisdom. Hence, only those with great wisdom could refine it.
"The key point is that I don't know how to refine the wisdom sword."
Fang Jinyu couldn't help but sigh.
If Fang Jinyu had known, he would have practiced hard for three to five months to obtain gains from refining the wisdom sword!
At this moment, the aura of a great Core Formation stage cultivator descended.
Ling Xiaojiu was here.
The sword energy entered the hall one step before him, but it disappeared without a trace in a flash and didn't hurt anyone. In terms of swordsmanship, Ling Xiaojiu could be ranked in the top ten of the Nine Desolations.
It was once stated in the book that Ximen Jianyi's swordsmanship would fall short of Ling Xiaojiu's if he didn't recover his Nascent Soul stage magical power.
Ling Xiaojiu had already reached the pinnacle of swordsmanship.
Ling Xiaojiu stepped into the hall with a smile on his face right after the sword energy disappeared. Meanwhile, a beautiful lady who ranked 1 at the Foundation Establishment stage, stood beside him.
The lady was naturally charming, but she was as pure as snow.
Who else could it be but the female lead, Su Yier?
After all, other than Du Maner, no one else would be more beautiful than Su Yier. Whether it was Xin Qianqian or the slim Ling Wutong who had yet to mature, none of them could be prettier than Su Yier.
Fang Jinyu couldn't help but be shocked when he looked at Su Yier who still ranked 1 in the Foundation Establishment stage. He thought, "Surprisingly, Su Yier's cultivation base only ranks 1 in the Foundation Establishment stage?!"
"Although most of Su Yier's cultivation base comes from dual cultivation, she only copulated with Qin Haoyue once. Hence, she can't improve her cultivation base much. Therefore, she's still mainly relying on her luck. It seems like Du Maner has greatly diluted Su Yier's luck!"
Fang Jinyu couldn't help but feel a little happy when he confirmed his suspicions.
At the same time, Fang Jinyu came up with an idea.
Since Du Maner could slow down Su Yier's cultivation, what if there was another "Du Maner"?
Once Fang Jinyu had the thought, he couldn't suppress it anymore. He was aware that Du Maner's appearance was accidental and that he unintentionally assisted her, but he couldn't help but consider the advantages of having one more female lead!
When the female leads were dragging each other down and their cultivation was improving "slowly," he could break through to the Nascent Soul stage before them. At that time, wouldn't he be safer?
After all, the protagonists were dangerous creatures.
Just as Fang Jinyu's thoughts were running wild, he suddenly realized that the topic of conversation had once again shifted back to him. As he turned to look around, he noticed Holy Alchemist Lu giving him a mocking glance.
Fang Jinyu thought, "This fellow is indeed a lingering spirit!"
If he didn't rank 7 in the Foundation Establishment stage, Fang Jinyu would have found an opportunity to kill him.
With this thought in mind, Fang Jinyu cupped his fists and said, "Martial Uncle Ling, my alchemy skills are mediocre. I'm afraid I can't refine the Six Alloy Elixir."
Although Fang Jinyu was in a daze, he heard their conversation.
First, Ling Xiaojiu said that the alchemy furnace corresponding to the spirit talisman could be used to obtain a superior-tier spiritual alchemy furnace. However, they had to go to the Liudao Sect to refine a furnace of Six Alloy Elixirs if they wanted to obtain such an alchemy furnace. Otherwise, they would have to wait for three years before they could receive a high-tier spiritual alchemy furnace.
Fang Jinyu naturally didn't dare to agree with it since he had never even heard of the Six Alloy Elixirs. Other than him, several alchemists faced the same question. Hence, none of them dared to agree with it.
Holy Alchemist Lu, on the other hand, must have known the grade of the Six Alloy Elixirs and immediately suggested that Fang Jinyu refine them.
Holy Alchemist Lu said, "Junior Brother Fang, it's not right. No alchemist will have good skills when they just start refining elixirs, right? One must know that the most important thing for an alchemist is his talent! I heard that you just started learning alchemy a year ago, and now you're already able to refine the Core Spirit Elixir. Doesn't your improvement prove that you have great talent?"
Meanwhile, he was smiling gently while he spoke. It was as if they weren't opposing each other anymore. Holy Alchemist Lu acted like a senior who was sincerely guiding his junior brother.
However, Fang Jinyu felt his smile was even more fake than those who compete with each other in the entertainment industry.
Fang Jinyu felt Ling Xiaojiu should be able to tell that Holy Alchemist Lu was exaggerating the situation. Hence, he stopped talking. It was because the book stated that the Liudao Sect Leader was friendly with Ling Xiaojiu. Even when the two of them later fought over Su Yier, they did not turn against each other because of it.
Therefore, Ling Xiaojiu wouldn't let Fang Jinyu go and trick the Liudao Sect.
However, Fang Jinyu's thoughts were overturned by Ling Xiaojiu in the next second.
Ling Xiaojiu casually instructed, "Fellow Daoist Lu's words make sense. In that case, then, Martial Nephew Fang, you should go! A superior-tier spiritual alchemy furnace has always been a rare treasure. If it isn't for the Six Alloy Elixir, that guy wouldn't have been willing to take it out."
Perhaps it was because Su Yier was around, or perhaps it was because he was in a good mood, but Ling Xiaojiu seemed to be much more polite to him.
Fang Jinyu was caught off guard.
Fang Jinyu thought, "I'm wrong! I shouldn't have believed that this lovestruck lunatic has logical thinking!"
Holy Alchemist Lu couldn't help smiling.
However, Holy Alchemist Lu soon stopped smiling.
It was because Ling Xiaojiu continued, "There are ten sets of spirit herbs. However, you've only used three sets to refine 21 elixirs. With such a success rate, Fellow Daoist Lu's claim that you're talented in alchemy is completely true."
Fang Jinyu was shocked and widened his eyes.
Fang Jinyu thought, "Is this the power of a Core Formation stage cultivator?"
"How can he easily use his divine sense to find them out even if I've hidden them in different spiritual Hundred-Treasure Box?"
In contrast to Fang Jinyu's shock, the other alchemists were terrified after they heard Ling Xiaojiu's words! It was because they had used at least six sets of spirit herbs to refine 20 Core Spirit Elixirs!
Fang Jinyu only used three sets of spirit herbs and even refined an extra Core Spirit Elixirs… The experienced alchemists couldn't believe the situation! It was because they could only refine five elixirs at most in each batch!
