159 Having an “Exam” in His Dreams
Fang Jinyu, who was full of resentment, didn’t notice that there was a symbol condensed in the little girl’s two small hands behind her back.
The symbol corresponded to the “Yu” in the three words “Fang Jinyu.”
Different from Fang Jinyu’s shallow understanding, the immortal symbol “Yu” condensed by Qing Fu seemed to contain the creation of the world and the scene of the universe. It was like a wonderful transformation in a small world.
It already contained more than half the power of a complete immortal symbol!
When Fang Jinyu finally gained something from the system, Qing Fu also gained something, and her gains were even greater than Fang Jinyu’s.
It was because what Fang Jinyu had comprehended just now was the “Fang” immortal symbol that corresponded to his name.
Furthermore, due to Fang Jinyu’s limited knowledge, he couldn’t comprehend much from it. However, even so, Fang Jinyu’s signature great divine power increased in power.
The ship was still sailing on the hundred thousand miles of seas of the Ying Land. Fang Jinyu had also begun to cultivate because it would take another half a month to return to the land.
Naturally, Fang Jinyu wouldn’t waste time.
However, that night, Fang Jinyu had an unprecedented dream.
Fang Jinyu dreamed that he had become an examinee.
When Fang Jinyu realized that he was dreaming, there was already a pile of thick examination papers in front of him.
Looking around again, there were a few other figures, but they were too far away from him, so Fang Jinyu couldn’t see them clearly at all. He could only see their outlines.
Fang Jinyu was bewildered. After that, he looked at the test paper.
Instantly, Fang Jinyu’s expression became strange.
It was because there were not only questions on the test paper, but Fang Jinyu was also very familiar with the first question.
“If you are a judicial immortal officer, but your sister had an affair with a mortal and gave birth to a son, what would you do at this time?”
“Isn’t this Yang Erlang?”
When Fang Jinyu thought of this, he had a corresponding answer in mind. However, it couldn’t be said to be an answer. After all, it was the follow-up to the story.
Afterward, Fang Jinyu saw the answer to the first question on the paper—kill that mortal, suppress his sister, and let go of his innocent youngest son.
Fang Jinyu couldn’t help but look down and immediately saw the second question, “If you’re an immortal official on duty and were ordered to strictly guard the immortal palace and not allow anyone to go out, what would you do if a person who met the travel requirements within a certain hour wanted to go out?”
Fang Jinyu’s mouth twitched. It was because, after reading the question, he already had an answer in his heart. Therefore, his answer appeared below the question on the test paper—repeatedly dissuading him until a certain amount of time passed.
“If there are Lich Kings from the lower realm who refuse to be disciplined, as the immortal king of the immortal palace, how can you show your dignity?”
Fang Jinyu instantly thought of “Journey to the West.”
Hence, there was an answer to the question—summon that fellow to the upper realm. As long as he dared to go to the upper realm, the upper realm would give the fool a minor official position. If he didn’t dare, who gave him the courage to not obey discipline?
Just like that, the night passed. Fang Jinyu had also spent the entire night doing the test papers.
When Fang Jinyu woke up, the first thing he noticed was that the talisman-like invitation on his body was gone.
Fang Jinyu immediately thought of the strange dream he had last night.
“How did I break through rank 4 in the Core Formation stage? I’m about to break through rank 5 in the Core Formation stage?!” At this moment, Fang Jinyu discovered something that stunned him. His cultivation had soared by a level!
Fang Jinyu immediately called Qing Fu over.
“Did you notice anything wrong with me last night?”
“Yes!” Qing Fu nodded her little head, and her expression was very serious. She said, “I saw it with my own eyes!”
“What did you see?”
“A large number of immortal seeds ate a black dragon. After eating it, they probably found it not to be delicious, so they spat it out again. After that, the black dragon became you, Mother.” Qing Fu waved her small hands as she spoke. Her big eyes were filled with curiosity.
Fang Jinyu’s eyes widened and he thought, “What happened last night wasn’t a dream?”
“So, where did I go last night?”
However, Fang Jinyu couldn’t figure it out even after thinking about it for a few days. It was as if what he had encountered before was just a dream.
However, it was impossible.
However, what was the use of answering the questions that night?
A few days later, the ship finally reached the shore.
Fang Jinyu arrived at an immortal city. He was in a hurry and didn’t stop much along the way. Now that he had stopped, he went to take a look around the immortal city.
Afterward, Fang Jinyu met someone who intended to rob and kill him.
However, Fang Jinyu wasn’t hurt. Even if several middle-stage Core Formation cultivators appeared, they were all killed by him.
However, in the next few days, more and more people tried to kill Fang Jinyu. Even the late-stage Core Formation cultivators came. Hence, Fang Jinyu captured them because it was obvious that there was something wrong.
Fang Jinyu asked, “Who sent you to kill me? If you tell me, I can swear to let you go.”
When the late-stage Core Formation cultivator captured by Fang Jinyu heard it, he said, “You swear first. I can also swear that everything I say is true.”
Fang Jinyu heard it and said, “I will let you leave if the information you revealed is true. Otherwise, he will be punished by the heavens.”
The late-stage Core Formation cultivator immediately heaved a sigh of relief. After swearing that what he said was true, he quickly said, “Fellow Daoist, the one who put a bounty on your head is Ye Wenting of the Shenhua Sect.”
“Who is he?” Fang Jinyu asked directly because he had no idea who the other party was. It was even the first time he had heard the other party’s name.
“You don’t even know Ye Wenting?” The late-stage Core Formation cultivator was stunned.
He thought, “They don’t even know each other, so what’s the point of putting a bounty on this person’s head?”
“Moreover, the bounty is so high, though? It made me think that the person in front of me had slept with Ye Wenting’s companion, which led Ye Wenting to use a large sum of money to kill him.”
“Ye Wenting was born in the Ye family, one of the 17 great clans of the Shenhua Sect. He is a cultivator with lightning-attribute Tianling spiritual root. However, he was too anxious when he was breaking through the Core Formation stage, so he only formed a grade 2 core in the end. However, with the support of the Ye family’s Nascent Soul stage Grandmaster, Ye Wenting only used less than a hundred years to cultivate and rank 9 in the Core Formation stage.” The late-stage Core Formation cultivator told Fang Jinyu everything he knew.
Fang Jinyu frowned slightly. He didn’t know Ye Wenting, but he knew about the Ye family.
It was said that the Shenhua Sect had “five lords, 17 aristocratic families, and 282 families.”
The five lords were the five supreme families that had once had Incarnation stage lord cultivators.
The 17 aristocratic families were the ones with Nascent Soul stage cultivators in charge.
As for the “282 families,” it referred to families with Core Formation stage cultivators in charge.
The strength of these families formed more than half of the Shenhua Sect!
At the same time, they also controlled the higher-ups of the Shenhua Sect!
Afterward, Fang Jinyu rubbed his hands together.
As the purple-volt spiritual fire flashed, the late-stage Core Formation cultivator didn’t even have time to scream before he was turned into ashes. He couldn’t even leave behind his core.
However, the spirit beast that the late-stage Core Formation cultivator carried was still alive, and Fang Jinyu had deliberately set it free.
Fang Jinyu had said that he would let one live, but he didn’t say that he would let him go!
Spirit beasts were also living things!
The scene shocked Qing Fu, who was standing at the side. Then, she had a cute expression that said, “I’ve learned it.”
“What’s with your expression?” Fang Jinyu immediately fed the spirit beast an elixir because he was afraid that it would die. After that, he noticed the strange expression on the little girl’s face.
“Mother, you don’t seem to have any enmity with Ye Wenting. Why did he send people to kill you?” Of course, Qing Fu wouldn’t speak her mind.
“It’s because he failed to form a first-grade core.” Fang Jinyu had already figured out the reason.
In another ten years, the Shenhua Sect would be bestowed with the immortal seed.
As for Ye Wenting, who had a grade 2 core, no matter how high his cultivation was, he wouldn’t be qualified to obtain the immortal seed.
As for his cultivation of breaking through the Nascent Soul stage? He might have to compete with his Grandmaster for an immortal seed.
How could he defeat his Grandmaster?
Therefore, Fang Jinyu’s immortal seed spot became Ye Wenting’s first choice. It was because as long as Fang Jinyu died, the immortal seed that belonged to him would become ownerless. Any Core Formation stage cultivators of the sect could fight for it.
Fang Jinyu had expected it, but he didn’t expect the other party to make a move so early!
Thus, Fang Jinyu changed into a very ordinary person. The rest of the journey was indeed safe. There were no robberies or killings along the way.
Half a month later, Fang Jinyu successfully returned to the Shenhua Sect.
During this period, Fang Jinyu also found the platform where people offered the bounty—the Evil Trading Board!
It was said that it was a rare item that had been passed down from the immortal world. As long as someone placed a “reward” in it, they could make a “purchase request.” Those who met the “purchase request” could obtain a reward from the Evil Trading Board.
During this period, the “buyer” had to leave his personal information, and the “seller”, who was also the person who accepted the mission, couldn’t reveal the information of the “buyer” to outsiders unless they were in a life-or-death crisis.
Otherwise, he would suffer the evil curse!
It was said that there was once a “seller” who ranked 9 in the Nascent Soul stage who casually revealed the information of a “buyer” at that time to outsiders and was directly cursed to death by the evil curse!
Even the Nascent Soul stage cultivator couldn’t escape from the curse.
It could be said that it was a relatively reliable “platform” that considered both “buyers” and “sellers.”
However, Fang Jinyu didn’t intend to use the opportunity to put a bounty on “Ye Wenting.”
Although the Evil Trading Board was more reliable, no one would dare kill Ye Wenting, who was ranked 9 in the Core Formation stage. The reason why so many people had come to kill Fang Jinyu was that Ye Wenting had emphasized that he had no background and even pointed out that he was only a member of the Shenhua Sect’s Hall of Rites.
The Hall of Rites was a place that represented that its disciples had no strength or background, which meant that there wouldn’t be too much trouble after killing them. That was why so many middle-stage Core Formation “sellers” were tempted.
After Fang Jinyu returned, he started his closed-door cultivation.
After all, although the extraordinary book teased him, it also showed one thing—Murong Yun would no longer threaten him!
Therefore, Fang Jinyu resumed his usual cultivation routine.
Three years later, a talisman-like invitation appeared in front of Fang Jinyu.
