59 You’re Slacking Off?!
The moment Fang Jinyu received the Summoning Talisman, he realized the Nascent Soul stage Grandmaster of Mount Guiwang summoned him. He didn’t dare to hesitate and immediately rushed to Mount Guiwang.
When Fang Jinyu arrived at Mount Guiwang, he found a woman with a serious look on her face who was about to head up the peak.
“She ranked 9 in the Foundation Establishment stage?”
Fang Jinyu glanced at her and was certain that she had also been summoned by the Grandmaster.
As a result, Fang Jinyu didn’t rashly greet her but went up to Mount Guiwang with her.
The woman also sized up Fang Jinyu, and when she saw that he had ascended to Mount Guiwang, her eyes revealed a hint of surprise. However, she didn’t say anything.
Just like that, the two of them walked up to Mount Guiwang. Then, as the sea of clouds changed, they met the Nascent Soul stage Grandmaster.
“Great, you’re here. You two can get up now.” The Grandmaster was still the same as before, looking like a young man. It should be because he was in his thirties when he broke through the Core Formation stage, which made him forever look young.
The Grandmaster responded casually and began to explain why he had summoned Fang Jinyu and the woman.
“I asked you to come here to investigate the disciples who have left the sect in the past few days.”
“Yes.” Fang Jinyu and the woman responded in unison.
“You’ve damaged your foundation when you failed to break through to the Core Formation stage. This elixir can help you recover.” The Grandmaster took out an elixir and gave it to the woman. He then looked at Fang Jinyu and said, “This is a Lightning Strike Stone, but it’s a pity that a part of its spirituality has been damaged. However, if you find an outstanding weaponsmith, you can still get a middle-tier spirit tool or even a high-tier spirit tool.”
“Thank you so much, Grandmaster!”
Fang Jinyu couldn’t help but be overjoyed. He had been longing for a lightning-attribute spiritual item for a long time. He had not expected to obtain it from the Tianling Sect’s Nascent Soul stage Grandmaster!
The Nascent Soul stage Grandmaster said, “You don’t have to thank me. This is the reward you deserve for doing this. Since I’m giving you these in advance, I hope you won’t disappoint me in the end.”
Those with great luck were mysterious. Even a late-stage Nascent Soul cultivator like him didn’t dare to provoke them easily, let alone get involved with them.
Otherwise, if one’s luck wasn’t as good as the other party’s, one would be affected by the other party.
It was also the fundamental reason why the Nascent Soul stage Grandmaster would give the task reward in advance. After all, it was a difficult task.
Then, with a wave of his sleeve, the Nascent Soul stage Grandmaster sent Fang Jinyu and the woman off Mount Guiwang.
After Fang Jinyu sighed at the unfathomable methods of a Nascent Soul stage cultivator again in his heart, he looked at the woman and cupped his fists. “Senior Sister, how should I address you?”
“My surname is Jiao.” The woman glanced at Fang Jinyu, her expression still cold and distant, but she replied to him.
“So it’s Senior Sister Jiao.” Fang Jinyu’s heart skipped a beat when he heard it. The “genius detective” mentioned in the book was called Jiao Taohua. Since she hated her name, she would only say her surname when someone asked. She was a model example of an unlucky child who had been traumatized for life by her parents giving her random names.
The female cultivator who ranked 9 in the Foundation Establishment stage responded indifferently and turned to leave.
However, after walking for a while, she suddenly asked, “How should I address you, Junior Brother?”
At this point, Fang Jinyu was still certain that the female cultivator in front of him was the “genius detective”, Jiao Taohua. It was because other than her unwillingness to tell others her name, she was a complete mess in the ways of the world.
If it wasn’t for her talent, dual-attribute spiritual roots, and hard work in cultivation, as well as the many cultivation resources her parents had left her, she would have died for many years.
She might even be burnt into ashes. It was common practice in the cultivation world to destroy the corpse with a small fireball.
“Senior Sister Jiao, you can just call me Fang Jinyu.”
After getting Fang Jinyu’s response, Jiao Taohua nodded and flew away on her spirit tool.
Fang Jinyu shook his head slightly and thought, “Jiao Taohua’s behavior is exactly as described in the book.”
“Speaking of which, most of the descriptions in the book match up. Other than the change in the plot, the only deviation is that the Lich King is in the Nascent Soul stage… Eh? Nascent Soul stage?”
At this moment, Fang Jinyu realized the key point.
“However, I’m still not sure yet… If there’s another Nascent Soul stage cultivator who is different from the description in the book…” Fang Jinyu’s gaze turned to Mount Guiwang.
Although the top-notch Nascent Soul stage cultivator in the Nine Desolations has always been the book’s background character, he has been mentioned twice.
The first time, the Nascent Soul stage Grandmaster shouted, “Humans and demons can not coexist.”
The second time was seven or eight years later when another cultivation continent crashed into the Nine Desolations. The Nascent Soul stage cultivator went to investigate and then disappeared.
For the first point, although the Nascent Soul stage Grandmaster seemed to be very familiar with the Lich King, it couldn’t prove that they had a good relationship.
Furthermore, the Lich King could be said to be the traitor to the entire Lich tribe.
The Lich King was even acknowledged by the human cultivators after he betrayed the Lich tribe.
Therefore, even if the Nascent Soul stage Grandmaster and the Lich King were friends, it wouldn’t affect his standpoint that “Humans and demons can not coexist.”
As for the second point, Fang Jinyu could only wait until the other cultivation continent crashed into the Nine Desolations.
After all, it hadn’t happened yet.
After that, Fang Jinyu began to search for the sect’s information on smithing. He thought, “Why don’t I become a weaponsmith rather than asking others to refine spirit tools? After all, it’s just a matter of obtaining gains from the system!”
Fang Jinyu didn’t desire to obtain many spirit tools. After all, his forte was still his great divine powers. His myriad transformation technique and lifeless thunderstorm technique were enough for him to have a high status among the Foundation Establishment stage cultivators.
However, Fang Jinyu could use another general method if he had a suitable spirit tool.
In contrast to the multiple layers of authority that were set up for elixir refinement, refining spirit tools didn’t have as many obstacles. As long as one was in the Foundation Establishment stage, they could cultivate any spirit tool refinement technique they wanted.
In other words, the materials used in refining spirit tools had to be paid for out of their own pockets.
In addition, weaponsmiths couldn’t enjoy the same treatment as alchemists. They couldn’t sell spirit tools at the total cost of refining them.
Fang Jinyu focused on studying the spirit tool refining manual. As for the matter of investigating the disciples who had left the sect recently, the first person he thought of was Su Yier.
Even though Fang Jinyu didn’t have any concrete evidence, he had a feeling that the person the Nascent Soul stage Grandmaster was looking for was Su Yier!
After all, which of the other disciples of the sect would be as special as Su Yier?
Moreover, if it had nothing to do with the main character, could Su Yier still be called the main character?
Hence, Fang Jinyu planned to write down Su Yier’s name in a few days and hand it over to the Grandmaster.
Of course, before that, Fang Jinyu still had to act like he was seriously investigating the situation.
Fang Jinyu pretended to tour the Tianling Sect’s peaks while pretending to investigate after reading the manual and confirming that he lacked any talent for refining spirit tools. In reality, he was just taking a look at the scenery.
It wasn’t until Fang Jinyu met Jiao Taohua that the “genius detective” said something shocking. “Junior Brother Fang, how dare you slack off on a mission assigned by the Grandmaster?!”
