119 I Was Swindled Just Now, and You Want to Swindle Me Again?
Fang Jinyu only arrived in front of the immortal city through the killing spree.
It was because when Fang Jinyu wanted to get close to the immortal city, the creatures under the sea, whether they looked like fish or humans, all attacked him like crazy!
Of course, the result was that they were all “taught” by Fang Jinyu to be fish.
Strangely enough, when Fang Jinyu was less than 50 nautical miles away from the immortal city, the crazy underwater ambush suddenly disappeared.
It was as if someone could control the sea creatures.
Fang Jinyu arrived in front of the immortal city and glanced at the plaque hanging at the door. There were two big words on it—the Demon-extinguishing.
Since he was unfamiliar with the place, Fang Jinyu didn’t dare release his divine sense.
After all, the divine sense of a Core Formation stage cultivator contained the ability to “see through the void.” If he released his divine sense, it would be no different from public provocation.
However, just as Fang Jinyu was about to enter the Demon-extinguishing Immortal City, the guards at the door suddenly looked at him. After exchanging glances, one of the guards walked toward him.
“Senior, are you the one who came over on a private ascension ship and encountered an accident?” He was a Foundation Establishment stage guard. He simply cupped his fists and spoke to Fang Jinyu. However, although he didn’t seem polite, it wasn’t malice either. In his words, he deliberately emphasized the word “private.”
Fang Jinyu’s eyes flashed slightly, and he immediately understood the hidden meaning of the sentence—”Brother, you smuggled in here, right?”
However… the ascension ship?
Could this place be the upper realm?
Fang Jinyu couldn’t help but find it hard to believe because the spiritual energy here was too thin. He had thought that the previous sea area was an exception, but the spiritual energy in this immortal city was still very thin. It wasn’t even one-tenth of the spiritual energy in Utopia Immortal City.
With such dense spiritual energy, how could it be the upper realm that could give birth to an Immortal Ascension stage immortal Almighty?
Fang Jinyu would believe it even if one claimed it was the Nine Desolations mortal world.
Thoughts flew through his mind, but Fang Jinyu’s expression didn’t change. He only asked calmly, “Fellow Daoist, how did you know?”
The guard chuckled and said, “Senior, I don’t dare be addressed as your fellow Daoist. You might not know, but everyone who comes to our Demon-extinguishing Immortal City has to buy this token. Otherwise, they will be killed by the evil beast in the sea. You must have killed all the way here, right?”
“What are you trying to say?” Fang Jinyu’s expression was still calm.
Seeing Fang Jinyu like this, the guard didn’t dare continue pretending, so he quickly said, “Senior, on your way here, did you manage to obtain the Sin Beast’s sin core?”
Fang Jinyu nodded slightly.
Fang Jinyu did have some of the sin cores that the guard had mentioned. After he killed some of the stronger ones among the Sin Beasts, he found a crystal core that contained special energy in their bodies. Out of curiosity and to study them, he collected hundreds of them.
The guard said happily, “Senior, are you willing to sell it? There is a senior who is willing to pay a high price of 100 spirit stones to buy the cores of the Sin Beasts.”
When Fang Jinyu heard it, he couldn’t help but show a strange expression.
Fang Jinyu thought, “Am I hearing it right?”
“100 spirit stones for a Sin Beast’s sin core?”
Although Fang Jinyu had just arrived, he estimated that the energy in the sin cores should be worth one common Five-element Spirit Pearl for ten sin cores!
Moreover, using spirit stones to buy things from a Core Formation stage cultivator, was it really not considered insulting him?
Fang Jinyu was confused, but to obtain more information, he pretended to nod and said, “I don’t know much about this place. Tell me in detail. Also, get me another token. I’ll give you the spirit stones later.”
Hearing it, the guard laughed and said, “To be honest, I’ve already prepared it.”
After saying it, he took out a jade slip and a token.
The guard said, “Senior, just use your divine sense to sense it.”
Fang Jinyu took the two items. He placed his divine sense on them and indeed saw the information inside.
The jade slip recorded in detail the division of forces in the Demon-extinguishing Sea, as well as some sea areas controlled by immortal sects. Those were areas that rogue cultivators couldn’t go to, or they might die.
As for the token, it was an identity token.
However, what puzzled Fang Jinyu was that there was an extremely hidden positioning array hidden in this thing. Such an array formation could fool ordinary Core Formation stage cultivators, but it couldn’t fool Fang Jinyu, whose divine sense was far stronger than that of a late-stage Core Formation cultivator.
Therefore, after discovering that he could destroy the positioning array with just a touch of his powerful divine sense, Fang Jinyu directly used that trace of sorcery power to refine the token.
Seeing that Fang Jinyu had refined the token, the guard immediately heaved a sigh of relief.
At this moment, the other guards at the city gate were still watching. When they saw Fang Jinyu refine the token, they sighed helplessly and shook their heads slightly, as if they had lost some benefits.
At this moment, the guard quickened his pace. Soon, he led Fang Jinyu to a luxuriously decorated shop.
“Senior Lin, hurry up and come out. I’ve brought someone for you!”
The guard shouted.
“What are you wailing about? If you dare to scream again, I will break your legs.” An angry curse was heard. Then, Fang Jinyu saw a slightly wealthy old man walk out of the shop. With a slightly arrogant attitude, he glanced at Fang Jinyu contemptuously and snorted, “He’s a genuine Core Formation stage cultivator.”
After saying it, the old man raised his chin and nodded slightly at Fang Jinyu. “Take out the sin core! Don’t worry, I’m a famous character in this city, I won’t covet this bit of trash.”
Fang Jinyu’s gaze changed slightly. No matter what, he was still a Core Formation stage cultivator. Although the old man was a cultivator who ranked 3 in the Core Formation stage cultivator, was he not aware that he might be attacked to death?
However, out of curiosity, Fang Jinyu took out a sin core and threw it over.
When the old man saw Fang Jinyu’s attitude, he was furious. However, when he saw the sin core, he was stunned and said in shock, “High-grade sin core? It’s a Sin Octopus’ sin core?”
Fang Jinyu couldn’t help but find the situation even more strange. He thought, “Is it something worth being shocked about? Although the octopus-like thing has a little power and took me three lightning bolts to kill it, and it lasted for a total of three breaths, it was just so-so, right?”
“Isn’t it easy for a Core Formation stage cultivator to kill that thing?”
However, despite his curiosity, Fang Jinyu didn’t say it out loud.
At this moment, the old man’s eyes were burning with greed as he asked, “Do you have more? I want all of these sin cores! I’ll pay you 100 spirit stones each! I’ll give you spirit stones immediately! This time, we won’t owe you anything, and we don’t need to mortgage a portion of it!”
“Not for sale.”
Fang Jinyu raised his hand and snatched the sin core back.
100 spirit stones?
Fang Jinyu wouldn’t even pick up this thing if it was in the Tianling Sect!
Moreover, Fang Jinyu had hundreds of boxes of spirit stones in his portable storage space. Although it wasn’t much, there were still 200,000 to 300,000 spirit stones.
