106 Yes, That’s Right, Thanks to Me
Apart from the Sect Leader’s Hall on Mount Tianling and the Nascent Soul stage cultivators’ residence on Mount Guiwang, the rest of the 72 peaks of the Tianling Sect had simple buildings. Although it wasn’t considered poor, it wasn’t luxurious either.
The Tianling Sect didn’t even have a single “servant disciple,” which was common in other sects. Everyone who joined the sect had the same identity.
If one didn’t know how to cast spells and couldn’t afford Inedia Elixirs, then they would have to do the laundry and cook for themselves.
Yet, the Tianling Sect-affiliated aristocratic cultivation families’ homes were all superbly constructed. Their houses were extremely spacious, and they also kept a large number of servants and maids at their beck and call.
“Junior Brother Fang, this is the Ling family’s heaven mirror. I dare not say anything about its other powers, but when it comes to calming one’s mind and dispelling evil spirits, even those magical treasures can’t compare to it!”
The head of the Ling family, Ling Zhengxiao, smiled as he handed a superior-grade spirit tool to Fang Jinyu.
“Then I’ll have to thank Senior Brother Ling. I’ll owe the Ling family a favor for this.” After confirming that it was the mirror he wanted, Fang Jinyu nodded.
It was because the book once mentioned it.
It was said that by chance, while it was being refined, a rare and marvelous item was added to it. It made it that even if an Immortal Ascension stage cultivator returned, his soul would be temporarily suppressed and unable to truly return to his position for three hundred years!
Therefore, Fang Jinyu had come to the Ling family to borrow the superior-grade spirit tool.
Ling Zhengxiao said smilingly, “It’s fine. Junior Brother Fang, I still have to thank you for taking care of my niece, Wutong.”
“Is it Martial Niece Ling Wutong?”
Fang Jinyu immediately thought of the hapless cannon fodder in “Su Yier’s biography” and nodded in understanding.
It was because Fang Jinyu didn’t give Ling Wutong any special treatment.
However, since Ling Zhengxiao had said it, it was obvious that he wanted to give more resources to Ling Wutong.
Coincidentally, there was a trial that was very suitable for Ling Wutong to participate in.
It was personally set up by the Tianling Sect’s Nascent Soul stage Grandmaster and was called the cultivation demonstration. Only the outstanding disciples of the Tianling Sect could participate in the trial! As long as one completed the trial and didn’t die halfway through, they would be able to break through tank 9 in the Foundation Establishment stage within 40 years!
Ling Zhengxiao nodded but didn’t say anything.
The two of them had a tacit understanding, and a “dirty behind-the-scenes deal” was completed.
Fang Jinyu took the heaven mirror and left.
Soon after, a beautiful young lady with a lithe figure came to Ling Zhengxiao’s side. She bowed respectfully towards Ling Zhengxiao and spoke in a voice as clear as a skylark, “Uncle, thank you so much.”
“You don’t have to be so polite. As long as you can become a Core Formation stage cultivator in the future, that’s all that matters.” Ling Zhengxiao let out a soft sigh. Although the Ling family was wealthy and powerful, ten superior-grade spirit tools and training ten sword cultivators for the Tianling Sect would be enough to exhaust the Ling family’s resources for the next 500 years.
However, to shut the mouths of the other families and to let his son, Ling Xiaojiu, manage Mount Lingjian, he had to take it out!
Otherwise, even if the Grandmaster agreed, the other families would stop him.
Therefore, it also caused the Ling family’s internal resources to start to lack.
The resources that ordinary disciples needed were still fine. However, for someone like Ling Wutong, who had excellent potential and had a chance of becoming a Core Formation stage cultivator, the Ling family was already unable to provide her with the resources she needed.
There was a saying that, although no one could prove it, almost all the cultivators in the Nine Desolations agreed. The younger they were when they became Core Formation stage cultivators, the higher the grade of their core, and the higher the chance of breaking through the Nascent Soul stage in the future.
As soon as Fang Jinyu returned to Mount Xiaohe, he found that Du Maner was already waiting for him under the puppet’s reception, drinking tea.
“Junior Sister Du.”
“Sect Leader Fang, is there something important that you called me back for?” Du Maner put down her teacup and quickly stood up to bow.
“Here’s the situation. You should have heard about the sect’s recent cultivation demonstration, right? This is the token to participate in the cultivation demonstration.” Fang Jinyu took out a token and handed it to Du Maner.
As the sect leader, how could Fang Jinyu not have some special privileges? The Grandmaster had granted him 12 such tokens.
In total, it was one year.
Du Maner couldn’t hide her joy and said, “Sect Leader Fang, thank you so much!”
In the eyes of the Tianling Sect’s Foundation Establishment stage cultivators, the cultivation demonstration was as important as the Lingdu Secret Realm in the eyes of the Qi Condensation stage disciples. Du Maner was originally worried about how to get the qualification for the demonstration, so she went out to do a mission and wanted to exchange merit points for it. In the end, a bunch of things happened that made her feel strange…
“Oh right! Junior Sister Du, that little girl Qing Fu will most likely want to participate as well, so I’ll have to trouble you to take care of her when the time comes. I’ll let you use this heaven mirror first.”
Fang Jinyu had already prepared an excuse.
It was just that Fang Jinyu hadn’t told Qing Fu about it. However, it didn’t matter. As long as he told her some fun things about the cultivation demonstration, and she could beat Ximen Jianyi up openly, she would want to go.
“A superior-grade spirit tool?! Sect Leader Fang, thank you so much!” Du Maner was slightly surprised and subconsciously wanted to refuse, but then she thought about how that little girl, Qing Fu, really liked to appear and disappear like a ghost. If she wasn’t careful, she would disappear without a trace, so she nodded.
Du Maner took the mirror, and she was stunned.
It was because Du Maner suddenly felt a sense of relaxation, and what made her most astonished was that she saw the chastity sand on her wrist.
Du Maner wasn’t the only one. Fang Jinyu had seen it as well.
Fang Jinyu’s pupils immediately constricted because it wasn’t something created out of nothing. It was just the “illusory technique” that had been set on Du Maner was broken.
The heaven mirror lived up to the description in the book!
“Sect Leader Fang…” Du Maner couldn’t help but look at Fang Jinyu.
“What’s the matter, Junior Sister Du?”
“Sect Leader Fang, did you…” Du Maner was a little embarrassed, but she still bit the bullet and said, “Did you see the chastity sand on my wrist disappear?”
Fang Jinyu pretended to be deep in thought, then said, “I didn’t notice it before, but since you’ve mentioned it, I didn’t see it just now! The mirror, on the other hand, has the magical ability to calm one’s mind and drive away evil spirits. I think you must have encountered some kind of illusion before, right? Now, the mirror broke the illusion.”
When Du Maner heard it, she was instantly humiliated and angry. She roared, “He’s that kind of person?! He’s a Core Formation stage cultivator, how dare he be so shameless?!”
After Du Maner finished her words, she realized that she had accidentally offended Fang Jinyu. Hence, she quickly apologized, “Sect Leader Fang, I’m not talking about you. I’m talking about Chen Donglai!”
Afterward, Du Maner told Fang Jinyu about her and Chen Donglai’s encounter.
Meanwhile, Du Maner also took out the three-headed, six-armed ghost-faced Buddha she had obtained. She had already sensed its ability to obtain other people’s luck, but she now had serious doubts about it.
With the heaven mirror in her hand, Du Maner’s mind was clear. Many things that she thought were reasonable before were now full of flaws!
She was a woman who wanted to look down on the world!
Why would she care about love?
“Junior Sister Du, I seem to have some impression of this thing, but I can’t remember what it is.” Fang Jinyu deliberately frowned.
“Sect Leader Fang, then I’ll give this item to you. It’s just that I’ll have to borrow this heaven mirror for a while. I don’t know whether I still have that illusionary technique.” The more Du Maner thought about it, the more she felt that something was wrong. She was now filled with fear.
Furthermore, Du Maner had developed a hatred for Chen Donglai!
Du Maner thought, “How dare he plot against me?!”
“He had almost tainted my chastity!”
It was because after Du Maner believed that something had happened that night, she did have the intention to hand her future over to Chen Donglai.
“Luckily, Sect Leader Fang has lent me the heaven mirror so that I can discover it in time!”
