171 This Is Called Extreme Joy Begets Sorrow
Dongfang Qiaoyu looked at Fang Jinyu, and the more she looked at him, the happier she became. She was fortunate enough to have seen Lord Cultivator Xia Yi from afar once, and that meeting has made her unforgettable ever since. She never expected to meet a junior brother who was as handsome as Xia Yi today!
Although she already had Senior Brother Chen Fanxing, she didn’t mind having such a good-looking junior brother!
Fang Jinyu was no stranger to Dongfang Qiaoyu’s gaze.
For example, before Fang Jinyu had a young man’s appearance, Yin Wujiu’s younger sister, Yin Xiaoxiao, had secretly sized him up many times. However, the strange thing was that when he went back this time, even though Yin Xiaoxiao had become thinner and had grown into a slim and elegant woman, she didn’t dare peek at Fang Jinyu as she did when she was young.
At this moment, Fang Jinyu was about to respond politely, but someone beat him to it and helped him “respond”, “Senior Sister Dongfang, this is Yin Wuyi. You just returned to the sect recently, so it’s normal that you don’t know him because he’s not a part of our community.”
The person who said it was the one who said that Fang Jinyu was wise to give up the immortal seed.
Dongfang Qiaoyu was stunned when she heard it. After all, everyone present was someone who could be bestowed with an immortal seed. Logically speaking, they were all people who were about to enter that community. How could Fang Jinyu not?
Chen Fanxing was already unhappy with Fang Jinyu because Dongfang Qiaoyu had taken the initiative to talk to him. However, he didn’t want to show it, lest his junior sister thinks that he was narrow-minded. Therefore, he pretended to be surprised and asked the man who had spoken, “Senior brother, what do you mean?”
Although Chen Fanxing didn’t know Fang Jinyu, he had cultivated for a hundred years longer than his junior sister, Dongfang Qiaoyu!
Therefore, he had more or less guessed the reason.
After all, the bestowment of an immortal seed happens once every hundred years. He had already experienced it once in his hundred years of cultivation.
At that time, there was also a person who could obtain an immortal seed, but he wasn’t able to enter the Immortal Rankings!
“Senior Brother Chen Fanxing, please don’t address me as your senior brother! I’m Chen Yao. Greetings, Senior Brother Chen Fanxing!” When the man heard Chen Fanxing’s words, he hurriedly cupped his fists and bowed.
It was because Chen Fanxing was the descendant of a sect’s lord cultivator.
Although there were many descendants of the lord cultivator, and 99% of them had never even seen the lord cultivator of their family, a cultivator who ranked 9 in the Core Formation stage and was about to obtain an immortal seed was more or less worthy of the lord cultivator’s attention.
The clan he belonged to was only a small family of the Shenhua Sect. Although his family had a Nascent Soul stage cultivator, he didn’t obtain the immortal seed, so they never announced the matter to the public.
The difference between having an immortal seed and not was something that the disciples of the Shenhua Sect knew very well.
The difference was just like heaven and earth!
“So it’s Junior Brother Chen Yao!” Chen Fanxing nodded. He came from a big family in the Shenhua Sect, so he naturally knew a little about small families with the same surname.
Chen Fanxing couldn’t help but pay attention to the outstanding figures in the small family.
Therefore, Chen Fanxing had heard of Chen Yao.
When Chen Yao saw that Chen Fanxing had heard of him, he was instantly delighted. Hence, he quickly said, “Senior Brother Chen Fanxing, Junior Brother Yin Wuyi has already given up his immortal seed.”
After all, they were all people from the same generation as Chen Fanxing, and many of their great divine powers weren’t weaker than his. However, because they didn’t manage to form a first-grade core, they lost the opportunity to be bestowed with an immortal seed.
However, from today on, these people who were in the same generation as him would be left behind by him.
Moreover, the gap between them would only get bigger and bigger. In the end, these people who were in the same generation as Chen Fanxing could only look up to him!
Chen Yao said, “It’s Senior Brother Ye Wenting.” Such information was hidden, but since he was qualified to come here and be bestowed with the immortal seed, it was naturally not difficult to find out about this.
He had his reasons for doing so.
The cultivators, who also had immortal seeds, formed their community. Only cultivators who also had immortal seeds could join. However, although they were all in the same community, their status was different.
After all, humans were creatures that liked to differentiate themselves!
Cultivators like them, who had just obtained immortal seeds, undoubtedly had the lowest status in the community of cultivators who had immortal seeds. As a result, newcomers would often either form a group or seek refuge with a regular member of the community.
As for Chen Yao’s idea, he had both.
Chen Yao wanted to make friends with a few people who were nominated to the Immortal Rankings at the same time to stabilize his position in the community of cultivators who had immortal seeds. At the same time, he also found the people he wanted to rely on.
It was Chen Fanxing, the so-called “Sword Sage!”
Although the cultivators who had immortal seeds were known as “little immortal kings,” only people like Chen Fanxing were truly qualified to receive such a title!
Someone like him, Chen Yao, wasn’t qualified!
“So it’s Junior Brother Ye!”
Chen Fanxing laughed. He naturally knew about Ye Wenting.
At this moment, Sun Wujing hurriedly said, “I felt sorry for Senior Brother Ye before, but now it’s the best that he’s a cultivator who has an immortal seed.”
As Sun Wujing said it, he looked at Fang Jinyu and raised his chin slightly, as if he were admiring “Fang Jinyu’s understanding” of the times. He said, “You did well. It would be a waste to let you take the immortal seed. It’s good that you know your place.”
When Fang Jinyu heard it, he finally decided to do something.
Fang Jinyu asked with a smile, “Senior Brother Sun, have you heard of a saying?”
“What?” Sun Wujing frowned and looked a little unfriendly because he didn’t like Fang Jinyu’s attitude when talking to him. In his opinion, a Core Formation stage cultivator without an immortal seed should speak to him respectfully!
“Extreme joy begets sorrow!”
Fang Jinyu said it faintly, and then he made his move.
With a wave of his hand, three bolts of lightning descended.
Sun Wujing was shocked, but it wasn’t because he was scared. It was just that he didn’t expect that “Yin Wuyi” would dare attack here!
Although the Shenhua Sect didn’t have any rules that forbade disciples from fighting at the Mount of Immortals and the degree of freedom for legacy disciples was very high, he was someone who was going to get an immortal seed. How could a disciple with such low status as Yin Wuyi, who was about to lose his immortal seed, dare attack him?
In an instant, Sun Wujing, who thought that he was being underestimated, was furious.
Then, naturally, there were no more stories.
Although Sun Wujing was about to obtain the immortal seed, he hadn’t obtained it yet, right?
The three bolts of lightning looked ordinary, but in fact, they were Fang Jinyu’s use of lighting techniques. In an instant, Sun Wujing fell to the ground, screaming.
However, it was nothing serious.
After all, as long as the cultivator’s Core Formation stage energy wasn’t extinguished, it would be difficult for Core Formation stage cultivators to be killed.
Moreover, Fang Jinyu only injured his body but didn’t hurt Sun Wujing’s Core Formation stage energy.
It was because the Shenhua Sect had a rule that as long as one didn’t hurt the other party’s Core Formation stage energy, no matter how two Core Formation stage cultivators fight in the Shenhua Sect, it could be defined as a spar between the same sect.
The Shenhua Sect even encourages its disciples to do it.
Unless there was a Nascent Soul stage or Incarnation stage cultivator, there were very few Core Formation stage cultivators who were punished without hurting the other party’s Core Formation stage energy.
“Senior Brother Sun, look, isn’t your extreme joy turning into sorrow?” Fang Jinyu said faintly. It made Chen Fanxing and the other three have strange expressions.
Among them, Chen Yao’s eyes were wide open because he was clear about Sun Wujing’s strength.
What’s the situation now?
Sun Wujing, a cultivator who ranked 9 in the Core Formation stage, had a first-grade core and a Tianling spiritual root, but he couldn’t even last one round before he was defeated by Yin Wuyi, who was a middle-stage Core Formation cultivator.
“Yin Wuyi, have you thought about the consequences of your actions?” At this moment, the female cultivator who had never spoken was the woman who had ignored him after learning that “Yin Wuyi” wouldn’t have an immortal seed.
At this moment, the woman looked at Fang Jinyu with an unfriendly expression.
After all, no matter what, Sun Wujing was about to be listed on the Immortal Rankings!
Therefore, it was worth her supporting Sun Wujing.
When she said it, she had already helped Sun Wujing up and fed him an elixir.
“Consequences? What consequences?”
Fang Jinyu asked in amusement. Not to mention that Sun Wujing hadn’t gotten his immortal seed, and even if he had, could he withstand the chain attack of “I’m good at hiding” and the nine-method transformation technique?
Fang Jinyu had just killed a late-stage Core Formation cultivator who had an immortal seed not long ago.
The current Fang Jinyu had a very accurate understanding of his strengths. Even if early-stage Nascent Soul cultivators came, they wouldn’t be able to do anything to him.
It was just that… Fang Jinyu couldn’t kill an early-stage Nascent Soul cultivator too.
The transformation between physical and virtual, gathering and dispersing by heart, was still an unsolvable problem for Fang Jinyu.
Unless the little girl was willing to help him.
“Senior Brother Sun is destined to have an immortal seed and become a cultivator who has an immortal seed. He will be nominated for the Immortal Rankings! As for you, although you have profound attainments in lightning techniques, in the eyes of a cultivator who has an immortal seed, you’re just a slightly stronger ant! You…” Before the female cultivator could finish her sentence, she screamed.
It was because three bolts of lightning had also landed on her.
Fang Jinyu said slowly, “Alright, then. Unknown senior sister, how about I, a slightly stronger ant, give you a shot?”
At this moment, be it Chen Fanxing or Chen Yao, they looked at “Junior Brother Yin Wuyi” as if they were looking at a lunatic.
When Dongfang Qiaoyu found out that “Yin Wuyi” couldn’t get the immortal seed, she felt that it was a pity because “Yin Wuyi” was no longer worthy of her.
However, at this moment, the little bit of regret in her heart was gone, leaving only her dumbfounded.
“Why? Do the three of you think so too?” Fang Jinyu looked at the three of them again. Since he had beaten two of them, he didn’t mind beating all of them as well!
When Fang Jinyu thought of it, he did the same.
“Junior Brother Yin Wuyi, I have no enmity with you…” When Dongfang Qiaoyu saw Fang Jinyu defeat Chen Fanxing and Chen Yao and make them lie on the ground, she couldn’t help but look at him with fear.
“Senior sister, you’re acquainted with them. You’ll be ostracized by them if you’re the only one who’s fine. So, I’m doing this for your good…”
As Fang Jinyu said it, he raised his hand and gave Dongfang Qiaoyu a shot.
Regardless they were the “Sword Sage” or the “best locksmith,” when they encountered Fang Jinyu, they were no different from the Foundation Establishment stage cultivators.
Fang Jinyu had a purpose for doing so.
After all, the matter of Fang Jinyu killing a disciple of the Zhudao Sect would be discovered sooner or later. Moreover, the fact that Han Feiyu and Yin Wuyi were the same person couldn’t be hidden anymore.
While Fang Jinyu was thinking about the matter, the upper realm’s immortal path had already begun to bestow immortal seeds. There were no strange phenomena, and only six points of light fell from the sky.
There were six immortal seeds!
It was similar to the “permit” given by the upper realm’s immortal path and contained some of the power of that path as well.
At this moment, an accident happened.
Other than Fang Jinyu’s immortal seed, which had entered his body, the other five were hovering above the five slightly charred Core Formation stage cultivators.
After that, the five immortal seeds surged into Fang Jinyu’s body.
