78 Carrying Her Grandmother Around
Fang Jinyu looked surprised. Before he could say anything, Xin Qianqian told him all the information about the “upper realm” outside of the Nine Desolations.
According to Xin Qianqian, the fluctuation of the spiritual energy in the Nine Desolations, which affected the harvest of the Foundation Establishment Fruits, and the bizarre death of a large number of Foundation Establishment Fruit trees not long ago, were all caused by the cultivators sent down by the “upper realm.”
“What’s their goal?” Fang Jinyu couldn’t help but feel puzzled.
The Foundation Establishment Fruit was only important to the Qi Condensation stage cultivators. Usually, the upper realm wouldn’t care about it at all.
Fang Jinyu could probably make up a story if Xin Qianqian mentioned that the upper realm came here to kill the Nascent Soul stage cultivators.
After all, Fang Jinyu had read a lot of novels before he transmigrated.
“The path of immortal cultivation starts with the Qi Condensation stage, but it doesn’t end with the Nascent Soul stage. Cultivators who rank above 9 in the Nascent Soul stage are the Incarnation stage cultivators. Cultivators who rank above 9 in the Incarnation stage are the Immortal Ascension stage cultivators.” Xin Qianqian whispered into Fang Jinyu’s ear and deliberately let out a soft breath after she finished.
Thus, Fang Jinyu pulled Xin Qianqian into his arms and held her down firmly to prevent her from continuing to cause trouble.
Fang Jinyu said, “You’re saying that a decrease in the number of Foundation Establishment stage cultivators is more beneficial to the Immortal Ascension stage cultivators?” It was a guess he had made.
“How can you relate the two of them? The decrease in the number of Foundation Establishment stage cultivators would damage the immortal path of the entire Nine Desolations because it was a crucial stage that connected the past and the future. Moreover, if there’s a problem with the immortal path of the Nine Desolations, the upper realm can connect with the Nine Desolations and leave behind inheritances and treasures here.” Xin Qianqian rolled her eyes at Fang Jinyu.
Xin Qianqian had asked her grandmother the same question at that time, and she had been severely despised by her grandmother.
“Just to leave an inheritance in the Nine Desolations?” Fang Jinyu couldn’t understand.
“Of course, they have a purpose! Senior brother, listen to me carefully.” Xin Qianqian was very unhappy that Fang Jinyu was pressing her down and made her hands couldn’t move freely. However, she continued and said.
“It’s not only an inheritance but also stopping the local inheritance in the Nine Desolations.”
“To be precise, it’s the upper realm’s immortal path that wants to invade the immortal path in the Nine Desolations.”
“It’s because the Nine Desolations is a new immortal cultivation land. It’s like a person in his prime who is full of vitality and full of hope. It’s also the reason Nine Desolations is generous enough to give everyone an immortal seed when they broke through the Core Formation stage.”
“Although the upper realm is vaster in their territory and stronger than the Nine Desolations, it’s not as vibrant as the Nine Desolations. Therefore, such a world won’t give its cultivators an immortal seed.”
“As for the immortal seed, it’s the foundation for breaking through the Incarnation stage.”
Fang Jinyu finally understood the situation. With fewer Foundation Establishment stage cultivators, there would naturally be fewer people who could break through to the Core Formation stage. When the people from the upper realm descended, they could take more immortal seeds away!
After all, no matter how generous the immortal path of the Nine Desolations was, they couldn’t give out too many immortal seeds. However, if the Nine Desolations had already accumulated a large number of immortal seeds before this, then it would be a different story.
Such a scheme was indeed worthy of being the scheme of the upper realm.
It was breathtaking.
Then, Fang Jinyu felt a sense of urgency. He had to break through to the Core Formation stage before the people from the upper realm descended!
Fang Jinyu couldn’t help but ask, “Junior sister, can you tell me how you know all this?”
Xin Qianqian said smilingly, “Well, it’s not impossible, but Senior Brother Fang, can you agree to marry into my family?”
Fang Jinyu said, “No problem.”
Fang Jinyu agreed immediately. After all, a son-in-law was a necessary label for an expert.
Moreover, it was very difficult for immortal cultivators to have offspring.
It was especially true for someone like Fang Jinyu, who had awakened his ancient authentic spirit Kui cattle bloodline and had already refined his spiritual fire. Most of the immortal cultivators’ descendants were born when they were in the Qi Condensation stage or the early-stage Foundation Establishment.
There were also examples of late-stage Foundation Establishment cultivators giving birth to children. However, not only were the cases extremely rare, but none of those late-stage Foundation Establishment cultivators had refined their spiritual fire without exception.
Xin Qianqian didn’t expect Fang Jinyu to agree so easily. However, she assumed right away that her Senior Brother Fang was too kind and sincere. She thought that he couldn’t bear to turn her down.
As such, even though Xin Qianqian’s grandmother had repeatedly objected to it, she told Fang Jinyu everything without hesitation.
Xin Qianqian told Fang Jinyu everything she and her grandmother knew.
It profoundly demonstrated what it meant to help an outsider.
Only then did Fang Jinyu realize that the thing that had triggered his fortune-telling technique was a wisp of her grandmother’s remnant soul in Xin Qianqian’s body. As for her grandmother, she was a cultivator from a sect in the upper realm. More than 100 years ago, she had come to the Nine Desolations under the orders of her master. In the end, something happened to the sect that she was in, and she had been implicated.
It was because one had to swear an oath before joining the sects in the upper realm.
The oath would definitely come true!
The oath that Xin Qianqian’s grandmother had made at that time was that if the sect was destroyed one day, she would die with the sect…
Hence, they died together.
However, it was also fortunate that she was in the Nine Desolations, which was a world away, and she had a chance to catch her breath.
Thus, she was lucky enough to leave behind a special remnant soul by using a secret technique. However, her remnant soul had also fallen into a deep sleep. She needed her descendant to break through the Foundation Establishment stage to wake her up.
As for Xin Qianqian, she had successfully broken through the Foundation Establishment stage just before her grandmother’s remnant soul dissipated!
While awakening her grandmother’s unique remnant soul, Xin Qianqian also saved her grandmother’s life.
Fang Jinyu’s eyes lit up.
Fang Jinyu thought, “No wonder the book didn’t mention Xin Qianqian’s grandmother! According to the time mentioned in the book, Xin Qianqian will need a few more years to break through the Foundation Establishment stage.”
By that time, Xin Qianqian’s grandmother had already disappeared.
“Doesn’t it mean that your grandmother has seen it all?” Fang Jinyu couldn’t help but point at himself and then at Xin Qianqian.
“Senior brother, don’t be shy. At grandmother’s age, what kind of tricks has she not experienced?” On the contrary, Xin Qianqian looked as if she didn’t care.
Hearing it, Fang Jinyu couldn’t help but think about it carefully and feel that Xin Qianqian’s words made sense.
“Senior brother, what do you want to do by reading these books?” At this moment, Xin Qianqian couldn’t help but ask again because her grandmother had mentioned this question in her mind several times.
Fang Jinyu saw that Xin Qianqian had even told him such a secret, so how could he keep it secret?
In any case, other than his gains from the system, there was nothing else that couldn’t be said.
Of course, if Xin Qianqian didn’t ask, Fang Jinyu wouldn’t take the initiative to tell her.
“When I saw that something had happened to the Foundation Establishment Fruit tree, I thought of how many fellow sect members and rogue cultivators would have to suffer the pain of not being able to break through. So, I wanted to try using other spirit herbs to make a new Foundation Establishment Elixir.” Fang Jinyu found a suitable excuse.
“Senior brother, will this work?” Xin Qianqian’s eyes widened in shock.
Fang Jinyu said confidently, “I have some clues at the moment, but I still need to compare a few kinds of spirit herbs, as well as the specific changes in the devil’s energy and the Liches’ energy.”
At this moment, unlike the inexperienced Xin Qianqian, her grandmother, who only had a wisp of soul left, was extremely shocked.
She knew that if Fang Jinyu succeeded, as long as he was still in the Nine Desolations, he would definitely become one of the most powerful Nascent Soul stage cultivators! It was just that the upper realm might curse the situation…
