174 The Gourd Girl (Part 2)
The woman glanced at Fang Jinyu and couldn’t help but ask, “What spell are you cultivating? Can you tell me? I remember that when you first met Qianqian, you weren’t as handsome as you are now! Of course, it’s fine if you don’t want to tell me. But don’t call me your grandmother in the future. I look like I’m in my twenties, but you two are making me old.”
Fang Jinyu said, “A heavenly-merit immortal scripture.” After all, it was the upper realm. Although the heavenly-merit immortal scripture was rare, it was only the heavenly book that was rare. Immortal scriptures were preserved in various immortal sects.
For example, according to Fang Jinyu’s speculation, the Shenhua Sect had at least two immortal scriptures.
“The heavenly-merit immortal scripture? It turns out that the Nine Desolations has the heavenly-merit immortal scripture?!” Xin Qianqian’s grandmother couldn’t help but be stunned. She couldn’t believe that a lower realm without a path to the Incarnation stage would have the heavenly-merit immortal scripture.
“Yes.” Fang Jinyu nodded because Nine Desolations did have it. Otherwise, where did he get half of the heavenly book related to the lightning technique?
Afterward, Fang Jinyu asked, “Grandmother, what do you need?”
Fang Jinyu didn’t have any grade 8 or grade 9 heavenly materials or earthly treasures with him, but he had two grade 7 heavenly materials and earthly treasures, and they happened to be related to the soul. Hence, he believed that Xin Qianqian’s grandmother might be able to use them.
“I told you, don’t call me your grandmother. Look at me! I’m so young! I’m not old at all!” Xin Qianqian’s grandmother was about to jump up. Unfortunately, she has no legs now. Only her head could be manifested.
“Then how should I address you?” Fang Jinyu could only ask when he saw how persistent she was.
After all, in Fang Jinyu’s opinion, it was just a form of address!
“My full name is An Ruyin. If you don’t mind, you can just call me Sister An.” If it was the Fang Jinyu in the past who addressed An Ruyin as his grandmother, she might not have minded. But now, looking at Fang Jinyu’s peerless appearance and hearing him address her as his grandmother, she felt that she had suffered a huge loss!
“Sister An, what kind of heavenly materials and earthly treasures do you need?” Fang Jinyu followed An Ruyin’s advice and reminded her, “Right now, you and I are no longer in the Nine Desolations. We are in the upper realm.”
“The upper realm?”
An Ruyin was instantly stunned. After that, she was extremely shocked and said, “The upper realm has succeeded in preaching? Why is it so fast? But didn’t you already get the elixir to replace the Foundation Establishment Elixir?”
In An Ruyin’s opinion, when Fang Jinyu made the elixir that replaced the Foundation Establishment Elixir, the plan that the upper realm had painstakingly worked on for hundreds of thousands of years was completely in vain.
It was because affecting the foundation of an entire world of cultivators wasn’t something that could be done so casually.
One couldn’t just focus on the matter of the sharp decrease in the number of Foundation Establishment Fruits and the Foundation Establishment Fruit trees had suffered a great loss. It was because the origin of the matter involved nomological power!
Therefore, the initial setup had taken a lot of effort.
“That’s not it.”
Fang Jinyu briefly explained how he had come to the upper realm and didn’t forget to mention Xin Qianqian. “Qianqian is currently cultivating in the Fishery Sect. I met her more than ten years ago and discussed it with her. We will focus on cultivation first and contact each other when she breaks through rank 9 in the Foundation Establishment stage.”
When Fang Jinyu and Xin Qianqian got together, they were very compatible, but they also had a plain relationship. Their relationship was better than that of friends, but they weren’t like other couples who were always lovey-dovey and wanted to be close to each other all the time. At first, Fang Jinyu didn’t understand. However, after he went to the Moongazer Immortal City more than ten years ago, he understood everything.
If she had to choose between love and cultivating, Xin Qianqian would undoubtedly choose to cultivate!
As for Fang Jinyu… He would also make such a choice!
And more than ten years ago, Xin Qianqian had yet to send him a message. Presumably, she was most likely stuck at breaking through rank 9 in the Foundation Establishment stage.
It was normal.
After all, Xin Qianqian didn’t have a good aptitude for her spiritual roots. However, rank 9 meant perfection. Back then, even Fang Jinyu had to put in a lot of effort to break through rank 9 in the Foundation Establishment stage.
Fang Jinyu estimated that Xin Qianqian, who had average talent, would need about twenty years to reach the perfection stage of the Foundation Establishment stage.
“The Fishery Sect?”
An Ruyin was stunned again because since she was born in the upper realm, she knew very well what the Fishery Sect meant.
It was the most mysterious sect in the Cave Lake Realm!
“Wait? So, you haven’t seen each other for more than ten years?! It shouldn’t be like that! Did that girl abandon you after she joined the Fishery Sect?” At this point, An Ruyin suddenly felt a little angry and started to defend Fang Jinyu because, in her impression, Fang Jinyu was a kind and honest person.
Fang Jinyu glanced at An Ruyin and wasn’t surprised by her reaction.
It was also the reason why he would use the analogy of a ghost becoming a tiger’s servant after being eaten by it.
Even though An Ruyin wasn’t clear about her current state, she couldn’t help but think of Fang Jinyu. She would think for Fang Jinyu in every way and put him at the center of everything.
It was because her soul power originated from Fang Jinyu.
“Sister An, I’m at Shenhua Sect now.” Fang Jinyu interrupted An Ruyin’s wild thoughts.
“The Shenhua Sect?”
An Ruyin was stunned again.
Afterward, An Ruyin looked at Fang Jinyu with a resentful gaze and thought, “So it turns out that the two of you had each joined a top-notch immortal sect?”
It was no less than a major blow to An Ruyin, who used to be a disciple of the Cihang Sect.
The Cihang Sect shared the same origin as the Goddess Sect and they also had a stunning Incarnation stage cultivator—lord cultivator “Fairy Qing!” However, the Cihang Sect wasn’t powerful anymore, and their Grandmaster, Fairy Qing, was nowhere to be found.
An Ruyin said, “I need some Jade Locust Tree Wood. It can help me stabilize my body and transform my ghost body. However… If I had something of the same origin as the gourd, I don’t have to walk the ghost path.” It was also the reason she couldn’t help but speak.
“I do have some.”
Fang Jinyu took out a gourd seed. It was from the gourd-like magic treasure. There were originally many of them, and they were about to mature. Unfortunately, he had shattered them with his lightning-attribute mountain, leaving only three gourd seeds.
An Ruyin was instantly overjoyed. She didn’t know about the gourd magic treasure, but the gourd seeds had another name. They were called “Bloody Gourd Seed.”
The nickname was slightly bloody, but it was one of the few treasures in the world that could be used as the cultivator’s second body.
It was said that there was a type of lotus that could turn into a human body of flesh and blood, allowing the ones who died tragically to resume their cultivation path. Moreover, the “Bloody Gourd Seed” was only second to the lotus flower!
An Ruyin had only heard of it back then, but she had never seen it before.
An Ruyin didn’t expect that when she woke up this time, she could find the gourd magic treasure that had grown from the “Bloody Gourd Seed!”
Following that, under An Ruyin’s explanation, Fang Jinyu relied on his gains from the system to comprehend an extraordinary scripture. After that, he used a few grade-5 heavenly materials and earthly treasures as “mud” and began to nurture the “Bloody Gourd Seed.”
It was another time-consuming effort.
Therefore, when Fang Jinyu ended his closed-door seclusion, he first sent a Ten Thousand Miles Letter to Xin Qianqian. Afterward, he was going to see if he could collect some spiritual items that could be used to strengthen the “Bloody Gourd Seed.” However, at this moment, Fang Jinyu suddenly sensed some movement from the nameless mirror. Hence, he found a secluded place and took out the mirror.
Soon, there was movement in the mirror. Fang Jinyu thought it was his senior brother, Grandmaster Meng, but when he looked over, he saw a bird as black as a crow.
“Second brother?” Fang Jinyu was surprised.
Although the bird in the mirror had changed a lot and Fang Jinyu hadn’t seen it for more than ten years, he could still recognize it at a glance. It was the Jade Falcon Myna that had forced him to become sworn brothers with it—”San Sun.”
“Caw! Third brother, haha! I haven’t seen you for a while. I heard from the Grandmaster that you’re cultivating in the mystic realm. I can use this to contact you!” When San Sun saw Fang Jinyu, he couldn’t help but complain, “Isn’t this mirror a little too taxing on our inner energy? I feel that I can only last for two hours.”
Fang Jinyu asked, “Second Brother, have you broken through the Core Formation stage?”
“Caw! Third brother, you’re indeed the best. You can tell at a glance that I’ve successfully broken through the Core Formation stage!” Upon hearing Fang Jinyu’s words, San Sun was instantly overjoyed and thought, “Although this mirror requires too much inner energy, it’s worth it!”
It was because it had successfully shown off.
