175 The Short Legged Qing Fu
Fang Jinyu understood the situation. The bird contacted him to “show off.”
It was probably because spirit birds and beasts weren’t aware of “gatherings.” Hence, after San Sun broke through the Core Formation stage, it didn’t have a suitable companion to exchange insights with for a while.
Thus, Fang Jinyu smiled and said, “Congratulations, Second Brother. I have a great divine power that I comprehended on my own. It’s the nine-method transformation technique. I’ll teach it to you as a token of my congratulatory gift.”
As a Jade Falcon Myna whose upper limit was only at the Qi Condensation stage could break through to the Core Formation stage, San Sun’s comprehension ability was naturally extraordinary. When it finished listening to the cultivation method of the nine-method transformation technique, it quickly understood the power of the great divine power. It was because many parts of it involved the subtle operation of the magic domain.
It was a great divine power related to magic domains!
Afterward, San Sun couldn’t help but ask, “Third brother, can I use the ancient authentic spirit Dangkang pig bloodline?”
Fang Jinyu was speechless.
Meanwhile, Fang Jinyu thought, “This bird indeed knows how to consider the benefits of being close to the source.”
Perhaps sensing Fang Jinyu’s strange expression, San Sun couldn’t help but feel embarrassed. Then, he didn’t forget to explain, “Isn’t it convenient to obtain it? Core Formation stage cultivators only need to consume a portion of their authentic energy to be able to differentiate some authentic spirit bloodlines.”
At this point, San Sun’s inner energy wasn’t enough to maintain the connection through the mirror, so he took the initiative to cut off the connection with the nameless mirror.
Fang Jinyu looked at the nameless mirror that had returned to normal. He casually put it away and then thought about the news that his sworn second brother had revealed to him.
It was about the ash immortals.
After all, Fang Jinyu had just seen a part of the scene related to it, so there was no reason not to take the opportunity to ask.
However, the news Fang Jinyu got surprised him.
It was because the region of the ash immortals that bordered the Nine Desolations had already disappeared. Moreover, when the black-and-white region disappeared, it brought away the devil’s realm and the City of Liches too!
It was especially true for the City of Liches. The entire stone city flew up and fell into the black-and-white land.
Right now, there are very few Liches in the Nine Desolations.
It was because only a portion of the Liches managed to escape in time!
Since the Fifth Lich King and the Eight Lich King of the City of Liches had a good relationship with Grandmaster Meng, their disciples who had escaped had joined the Tianling Sect.
The other Liches hid in the desolate forbidden land.
“When the City of Liches was about to enter the black-and-white land, a Nascent Soul stage Lich Grandmaster stepped in to stop it, but it was killed by a monster that rushed out of City of Liches’ inner city…”
“Could it be that the reason why the region of the ash immortals appeared was for the devil’s realm and the City of Liches?”
Fang Jinyu was deep in thought. Not only he, but many Nascent Soul stage and Core Formation stage cultivators in the Nine Desolations also had the same suspicions because the black-and-white land had appeared too suddenly and disappeared too suddenly.
After all, the inner city of the City of Liches had a monster rush out of it and kill a Nascent Soul stage cultivator!
Even a Nascent Soul stage cultivator that could transform between virtual and reality and gather and disperse at will couldn’t escape the monster’s attack! It could be said that it was the ceiling of Nine Desolations’ combat strength!
Afterward, Fang Jinyu continued to search for spiritual items.
It was hard to find high-tier heavenly materials and earthly treasures. However, ordinary spiritual items could be bought as long as one had spirit stones.
However, Fang Jinyu didn’t have many spirit stones with him. Although he had gained a lot from looting the corpses, it couldn’t withstand Fang Jinyu’s extravagant spending. Fortunately, earning spirit stones had never been difficult for him.
Fang Jinyu sold some talismans that could kill ordinary Core Formation stage cultivators, as well as some array-type spirit tools that could gather spiritual energy and help people cultivate. Therefore, he could soon buy the spiritual items he needed.
Afterward, Fang Jinyu began to use spiritual items to nourish the “Bloody Gourd Seed.” After half a year, the “Bloody Gourd Seed” finally sprouted. Following that, the “Bloody Gourd Seed” grew faster.
It took three days to grow its leaves, nine days to grow strong vines, and 17 days to bear fruit.
A month later, a bright yellow gourd fell from the gourd vine.
The gourd vines withered.
An Ruyin’s voice came from the bright yellow gourd. “Oh my goodness! I finally succeeded! I almost suffocated to death!”
Following the voice, a face appeared on the gourd.
It was An Ruyin.
However, anyone who saw the scene would have the first reaction of saying, “Monster!”
Therefore, when An Ruyin saw Xin Qianqian, Xin Qianqian also addressed her grandmother in the same way.
“You wretched girl!”
An Ruyin was furious and bounced back and forth as if she wanted to beat Xin Qianqian up.
“Why are you here?” In contrast, Fang Jinyu was surprised by Xin Qianqian’s arrival.
Xin Qianqian said happily to Fang Jinyu, “Hehe! Senior brother, I just wanted to give you a surprise! Look at me! I’m already ranked 9 in the Foundation Establishment stage!”
Xin Qianqian couldn’t gain anything from the system just like Fang Jinyu did. Therefore, even though she had the breakthrough secret technique An Ruyin had left behind, the elixirs to assist her cultivation, and the spiritual items that corresponded to her cultivation technique, it still took her more than ten years to break through rank 9 in the Foundation Establishment stage!
It was especially true when Xin Qianqian cultivated from rank 8 to rank 9 in the Foundation Establishment stage. Even if she worked hard in her cultivation day and night, there was a long time when it was as if she hadn’t cultivated at all.
If Fang Jinyu hadn’t sent her a Ten Thousand Miles Letter that told her that An Ruyin hadn’t only woken up but also gained a body to make her excited and broke through a part of the bottleneck, she might have needed several years of hard work to break through rank 9 in the Foundation Establishment stage.
Fang Jinyu asked, “Then how did you get here?”
“Senior brother, don’t you know? Every 30 years, the five great immortal sects would hold a competition between Foundation Establishment stage disciples. This time, it was the Shenhua Sect’s turn to be the host.”
Fang Jinyu only found out about it now.
Meanwhile, someone came to convey the sect leader’s decree and said, “Martial Uncle Han, the sect leader wants you to prepare for the opening performance before the competition.”
The person left after passing on the message, and it made Xin Qianqian curious. She asked, “Senior brother, what is your position in the Shenhua Sect?”
“The palace leader of the Hall of Rites.”
“Eh? The chief of a group of good-looking people?” Xin Qianqian instantly understood.
“Hit her!” An Ruyin took the opportunity to fan the flames.
However, An Ruyin failed because she was chased out by Fang Jinyu and Xin Qianqian.
After the incident, Fang Jinyu experienced the wonders of Xin Qianqian’s cultivation.
Fang Jinyu had broken through his cultivation base.
Fang Jinyu was now ranked 9 in the Core Formation stage!
Since the spell that Xin Qianqian cultivated was mutually beneficial, she also broke through the Core Formation stage.
The only pity was that Xin Qianqian was only a grade 2 core.
It made Fang Jinyu frown.
“Alright, alright, senior brother, you don’t have to be so sad. I’m already satisfied that my core has reached grade 2.” Fang Jinyu looked regretful. However, Xin Qianqian was very happy about it.
Xin Qianqian knew that she had ordinary talent, so she was satisfied to be able to form a grade 2 core.
Xin Qianqian continued to persuade Fang Jinyu, “Senior brother, even if you rank 9 in the Core Formation stage, I only have a small chance of forming a first-grade core. In fact, I still have a high chance of forming a grade 2 core.”
When Fang Jinyu heard it, he said, “I have a spiritual item called the Gold Core Elixir. It can help you form a first-grade core. I originally wanted to give it to you after the competition and when you’re going to start your closed-door cultivation. I can find two more spirit herbs to refine an elixir that can increase the cultivation of early-stage Core Formation cultivators. When the time comes, I’ll give it to you to help you stabilize your cultivation.”
It was Fang Jinyu’s original plan.
The competition was in three days, this bit of time wasn’t enough for Xin Qianqian to start her closed-door cultivation and form her core.
However, Fang Jinyu didn’t expect that he had only been separated from Xin Qianqian for a long time, but in the end, she had directly borrowed his inner energy to successfully break through her cultivation in one go.
Xin Qianqian’s little face was instantly stunned. Afterward, she couldn’t help but look at Fang Jinyu with a resentful gaze and purse her lips. “Senior brother, couldn’t you have endured it just now?”
“Can’t you tell me the characteristics of the spell you cultivate in detail?” Fang Jinyu refused to take the blame.
“I once said it when we are in the Moongazer Immortal City…” Xin Qianqian showed a bitter expression. After all, who would want to form a grade 2 core when they could form a first-grade core?!
“I also didn’t expect that the degree of mutual benefit from your spell would be so high…”
Fang Jinyu didn’t know what to say.
Thus, Fang Jinyu handed An Ruyin over to Xin Qianqian and walked out. He casually gave some instructions to the inner disciples of the Hall of Rites to prepare the opening performance before he went to call Qing Fu.
It was because Fang Jinyu couldn’t feel anything about the “unexpected surprise” he would know when he broke through the late-stage Core Formation that Qing Fu had mentioned before. However, he could sense it after he accidentally broke through rank 9 in the Core Formation stage.
“Mother, why are you looking for me?”
Qing Fu’s figure turned corporeal. Compared to ten years ago, not only did she not grow taller, she was even shorter. Fang Jinyu couldn’t help but stare at her speechlessly.
“Why did you become shorter?”
Fang Jinyu couldn’t help but stretch out his hand to gesture. Previously, Qing Fu could still reach his abdomen, but now, she was not even as tall as his legs.
Qing Fu could be considered to have become a really short person.
“Mother, can you not mention that?” The little girl looked unhappy and made a face at Fang Jinyu.
Fang Jinyu saw that Qing Fu’s cultivation base seemed to be higher than before, so he didn’t ask further. He guessed that she had come up with some “novel” secret technique and something went wrong, so he said, “I feel like I can break through the Nascent Soul stage at any time, but after I succeeded, I have to go somewhere. Do you know where that is?”
After Fang Jinyu broke through rank 9 in the Core Formation stage, he instantly sensed the seven immortal seeds in his body.
One of them was the largest, and the moment Fang Jinyu sensed it, it swallowed the other six immortal seeds in one gulp. Then, Fang Jinyu comprehended some of the nomological intent of the transformation between reality and virtuality.
At the same time, a strange piece of information appeared in Fang Jinyu’s mind.
Just as Fang Jinyu said, he had to go to an unknown area. As for what he was going to do, the information didn’t say anything, but it did tell him how to get there.
“Mother, you sensed it too?”
