153 As Long as He Doesn’t Make a Loss
At the Seven Immortals Island, outside the Fishery Sect, Xin Qianqian was in a great mood after sending out the second Ten Thousand Miles Letter in her hand.
There was also an immortal city here.
It’s called the Moongazer Immortal City.
In the past thousands of years, the Fishery Sect’s disciples who had left the sect would have their descendants living in the Moongazer Immortal City. Later on, even though some cultivation families had grown stronger and moved elsewhere, they still left their descendants in the Moongazer Immortal City.
Therefore, the Moongazer Immortal City was the city with the most cultivation families in the Cave Lake Realm.
In other immortal cities, there were at most a few hundred immortal cultivation families, and half of the families’ main combat forces were only Foundation Establishment stage cultivators. However, the Moongazer Immortal City was different. Not only were there thousands of families, but even the main combat forces of these families were at least Core Formation stage cultivators!
If someone could unite the aristocratic families in the Moongazer Immortal City, they would definitely be able to establish a great force that wasn’t inferior to the immortal sects in the 12 lands!
Of course, the prerequisite was that there had to be an Incarnation stage lord cultivator in charge.
Otherwise, it would be as futile as drawing water with a bamboo basket.
At this moment, Xin Qianqian, who was in a good mood, even gave the cultivator who led the way dozens of spirit stones.
It was because the cost of sending a Ten Thousand Miles Letter wasn’t cheap. If it were in the Nine Desolations, tens of thousands of spirit stones wouldn’t be much. However, she was now in the upper realm. Moreover, the spirit stones in the Nine Desolations had another name—Flawless Spirit Stones. Therefore, Xin Qianqian was careful. She sent the second Ten Thousand Miles Letter through another shop.
The person who led Xin Qianqian was a Qi Condensation stage cultivator. When he saw the dozens of spirit stones, he was instantly excited, and he quickly said, “Fairy, I wonder if there are any other places you want to go. I grew up in the Moongazer Immortal City since I was young. I don’t dare say that I’ve been everywhere, but I know all the shops and pavilions in the Moongazer Immortal City.”
“Not for now.” As Xin Qianqian spoke, she waved her hand lightly. Instantly, a superior-grade spiritual longsword flew out of her sleeve. She then took a step forward, and she turned into a stream of light as she flew into the depths of the clouds.
Seeing that his guest had left, the Qi Condensation stage cultivator prepared to wait at the city gate.
It was because he relied on running errands and leading the way to earn what he needed for his cultivation.
There was no basic salary in his industry. How much one could earn in a day depended on the tips given by the customers. However, because the Moongazer Immortal City was on the Seven Immortals Island, his line of work could be considered safe.
After all, it was better to have a big tree to lean on.
However, before the Qi Condensation stage cultivator could go far, he was stopped by a kind-looking Foundation Establishment stage cultivator.
Afterward, the Foundation Establishment stage cultivator asked something that was extremely inconsistent with his kind appearance, “Little Brat Xu, have you found out the identity of the female cultivator you just brought over?”
When the Qi Condensation stage cultivator saw the Foundation Establishment stage cultivator, he immediately felt afraid, so he quickly said, “Senior Lin, I’m not sure about this, but that fairy should have just arrived at the Moongazer Immortal City recently.”
“In this case, Little Brat Xu, take this. Use this to inform us when the next time she comes.” When the kind-looking Foundation Establishment stage cultivator heard his words, he immediately smiled and stuffed a low-grade spirit tool into the hands of the Qi Condensation stage cultivator.
Normally, the Qi Condensation stage cultivator would be overjoyed to obtain a spirit tool, but now his face turned pale.
“Why? You don’t want to?” The kind-looking Foundation Establishment stage cultivator was still smiling, but his tone suddenly turned cold.
As a rogue cultivator who was born and raised in the Moongazer Immortal City, how could the Qi Condensation stage cultivator not know what the other party was up to?
Moreover, because he and the other party’s daughter were childhood sweethearts, he knew very well that this group of people had already done many evil things. It was against his conscience.
The Foundation Establishment stage cultivator said coldly, “What are you hesitating about? Be quick! How many resources have these aristocratic family disciples taken from us rogue cultivators? If Xianer didn’t lack spirit stones, she would have broken through the Foundation Establishment stage long ago.”
When the Qi Condensation stage cultivator heard the other party mention “Xianer,” he lost his temper and could only nod.
Xianer was his childhood sweetheart.
It was because his childhood sweetheart, Xianer, was as beautiful as a fairy as her name suggested. Naturally, he had some thoughts about his childhood sweetheart.
After all, a gentleman was a good match for a graceful lady.
“That’s good. Little Brat Xu, as long as you do your job well, I won’t treat you unfairly. You know, your father and I are good friends. Back then, we almost joined the Fishery Sect. As long as this matter is successful, I will let Xianer guide you next time. After all, your appearance is not bad.” The Foundation Establishment stage cultivator nodded in satisfaction. His originally kind face was even more amiable.
However, when the Qi Condensation stage cultivator heard it, his face turned pale with fright. He said, “Xianer is also doing murder and robbery with you?”
“No. Even Xianer doesn’t know about this.” The Foundation Establishment stage cultivator denied it immediately and then quickly changed the topic. He said, “Isn’t Xianer learning alchemy? I want you to learn it too. If you learn it, at least you have a chance of breaking through the Foundation Establishment stage.”
When the Qi Condensation stage cultivator heard it, he immediately heaved a sigh of relief.
It was because if “Xianer” also did such a thing, he would doubt if she was still the “Xianer” he knew.
“Thank you, Senior Lin.”
The Foundation Establishment stage cultivator nodded and turned to leave.
After all, he was going to kill a late-stage Foundation Establishment cultivator. He had to plan carefully.
The Qi Condensation stage cultivator was unwilling to do such a thing. However, when he thought of his childhood sweetheart, Lin Xianer still lacked the spirit stones to buy Foundation Establishment Elixirs, he immediately decided to do it.
“In the cultivation world, the strong prey on the weak. I’m just obeying the heavens.”
When the Qi Condensation stage cultivator said it, he believed it.
However, the Qi Condensation stage cultivator waited for more than a month before he saw the female cultivator again. Alongside the female cultivator was a young man.
The young man was wearing an ancient, greenish-gray robe. If other cultivators were to wear it, they would look extremely ugly. However, the young man’s outfit made him look different.
It could only be said that good-looking people would look good in anything.
“Brother Xu, you’ve been looking at those two. Do you know them?” At this moment, a bell-like voice of a girl sounded in the ears of the Qi Condensation stage cultivator.
The Qi Condensation stage cultivator quickly turned around and saw a beautiful young girl. Her eyes were like a painting, and she was very beautiful.
The Qi Condensation stage cultivator was pleasantly surprised because he hadn’t seen his childhood sweetheart for a while. Now that he had seen her again, he was naturally very happy. However, in the next second, the Qi Condensation stage cultivator’s heart trembled.
It was because his childhood sweetheart was looking at the young man beside the female cultivator in a daze.
In an instant, jealousy and hatred welled up in his heart.
Therefore, the Qi Condensation stage cultivator said, “Xianer, I don’t know them, but I saw Senior Lin earlier…”
“You saw my father?”
The girl couldn’t help but frown.
Seeing that his childhood sweetheart had switched her attention, the Qi Condensation stage cultivator secretly injected his inner energy into the low-grade spirit tool.
He didn’t want “Xianer” to know what he was doing.
In his eyes, his “Xianer” was flawless and pure, like a lotus flower. He wouldn’t allow her to be tainted by such filth.
At this moment, Xin Qianqian’s eyes curved into crescents as she looked at the youth beside her with a smile.
“Senior brother, do you think we look like a pair of siblings now?”
Who else could the young man in a simple greenish-gray robe be other than Fang Jinyu? After he knew that Xin Qianqian was near the immortal sect of the Fishery Sect, he immediately rushed over.
Fortunately, there were many famous spirit creatures and spirit beasts in the hundred thousand miles of the sea of the Ying Land, so there were many merchant ships.
Therefore, Fang Jinyu first let Qing Fu take him on a short journey, then took a boat. After floating on the sea for more than half a month, they successfully arrived at Seven Immortals Island.
As for Qing Fu, she ran away halfway.
It was because she said that there was a cultivator who ranked 9 in the Incarnation stage in the Fishery Sect Immortal City, she didn’t dare get too close.
Fang Jinyu glanced at Xin Qianqian half-smilingly and said, “So, what are you trying to say?”
“Then why don’t you try calling me sister?”
Xin Qianqian was moved. There was a strange look in her black eyes. It was obvious that she didn’t just want Fang Jinyu to call her sister.
Fang Jinyu rolled his eyes at her and said, “I think it’s more appropriate for you to call me your father…”
How could Fang Jinyu not know what Xin Qianqian was thinking?
Xin Qianqian snorted lightly. However, a moment later, she tiptoed and moved closer to Fang Jinyu’s ear. Her lips opened slightly and moved slightly, spitting out two syllables.
Fang Jinyu was stunned.
Xin Qianqian pouted and urged, “Call me sister, or I’ll suffer a huge loss.”
However, at this moment, a kind-looking Foundation Establishment stage cultivator suddenly walked over. After a long distance, he called out, “Have you two just arrived at the Moongazer Immortal City?”
Upon seeing the person, Fang Jinyu immediately ignored Xin Qianqian. After all, it was fine as long as he didn’t lose out.
Fang Jinyu cupped his fists and said, “That’s right. Fellow Daoist, may I know what you want?”
When Fang Jinyu was outside, he naturally disguised himself as a Foundation Establishment stage cultivator again. Moreover, just like last time, he disguised himself as a middle-stage Foundation Establishment cultivator.
The Foundation Establishment stage cultivator said with a smile, “My name is Lin Chengxing, a local cultivator of the Moongazer Immortal City. I know all the places in the city, and I know all the ways. I wonder if there’s anything you two want to buy? If there is, I can lead the way for you.”
Fang Jinyu asked Xin Qianqian, “Is there anything you want to buy?”
Xin Qianqian glared at Fang Jinyu. She thought, “You don’t want to admit that you have taken advantage of me!”
“It’s too much!”
“Fellow Daoist Lin, we don’t have anything we want to buy for the time being.” Fang Jinyu shook his head at the Foundation Establishment stage cultivator.
“That’s fine. This is my contact information. If the two of you need anything, you can come and find me.” The kind-looking Foundation Establishment stage cultivator took out a talisman.
Fang Jinyu glanced at it and used his divine sense to see through it. Seeing that there was no problem, he kept it.
It was because cultivators like the Foundation Establishment stage cultivator in front of him were often seen in other immortal cities. Those who weren’t capable would help others run errands and lead the way. As for those who had some connections and were diligent, they were like the Foundation Establishment stage cultivator in front of Fang Jinyu.
