Chapter 316 - 316 What a “Thief in the Heart”
316 What a “Thief in the Heart”
Shi Wushuang was naturally excited when she saw Fang Jinyu.
When she was excited, she wanted to express her feelings!
However, just as she raised her hands and wanted to take the opportunity to hug Fang Jinyu, a small head came over and stooped in front of Fang Jinyu, blocking her next move.
A certain little girl pretended to be old and said, “I saved you! Little girl!” She didn’t feel that it would be very inappropriate to say it.
Shi Wushuang couldn’t help but be stunned when she saw the exquisite and familiar face. She blinked in disbelief and shock, so she asked softly, “Sister Qing Fu, so many years have passed, but why are you still so young?”
Shi Wushuang and Qing Fu were naturally very familiar with each other. After all, they had been “breaking things” since they were young.
Yes, when the two of them were together back then, they had taken apart a lot of things.
At that time, Qing Fu had just come to the Cave Lake Realm, and she couldn’t help but be interested in the new things in this realm.
For example, the chariot that Elder Brother Yin Wujiu gave Fang Jinyu.
Fang Jinyu had only driven the chariot halfway when it was tormented by the two fellows. Although most of the reason was because of a certain little girl, Shi Wushuang also “contributed” a lot!
At this moment, Fang Jinyu, who had been silent at the side, quickly put Shi Wushuang down when he heard her words. After that, he picked up Qing Fu with one hand to prevent her from going up and beating Shi Wushuang up.
After all, Shi Wushuang had been locked up for more than 100 years. She looked normal now, but in reality, she was even weaker than a certain “Junior Sister Sun,” who had been invited to the apocalypse!
These words could perfectly show the essence of his senior brother, Grandmaster Meng—mentioning something that the other party didn’t want to.
However, what surprised Fang Jinyu was that a certain little girl didn’t have such thoughts. Instead, because of his sudden action, she was looking at him with a pair of bright eyes.
Her big black and white eyes looked confused as if she were asking, “Why are you hugging me?”
Thus, Fang Jinyu decisively let go.
Qing Fu naturally didn’t fall to the ground. She was an Immortal Ascension stage cultivator. She could command the four elements of the four seasons—wind, rain, thunder, and lightning—at will if she were in the “Fang Jinyu Realm.”
“I can also become older.” Qing Fu replied with a serious face. Afterward, she indeed “grew” a little. Her body grew a little taller, and for a moment, she looked like a young girl. However, she didn’t last long. In the blink of an eye, she was back to her original form, and she had short legs again.
She bounced back like stretched rubber.
Fang Jinyu, who was standing at the side, couldn’t help but raise his eyebrows and be speechless. He wanted to ask, “Where did you find this expired demon fruit?”
Shi Wushuang laughed out loud. After all, the scene was too funny.
Afterward, a certain little girl stretched out her fair and tender hand toward her and gently drew a circle. Shi Wushuang also had short legs as she laughed.
Fang Jinyu’s eyes widened when he saw the scene.
It was because Fang Jinyu realized that Shi Wushuang’s body had not only shrunk, but she had returned to her childhood!
Along with her cultivation.
However, Shi Wushuang wasn’t the same as when she was young, because Qing Fu left her some cultivation base, which was about rank 1 in the Qi Condensation stage. Although it didn’t seem to be much different from taking away all of her cultivation base…
“What great divine power is this?”
Fang Jinyu couldn’t help but ask. Qing Fu’s performance was simply reversing time!
Qing Fu explained, “When I was looking for a damaged immortal treasure, I accidentally found a bizarre battle mark. Out of curiosity, I carefully observed it and then comprehended this secret technique. However, I didn’t cultivate it to perfection because there was a problem.” Afterward, she tilted her head and looked at Fang Jinyu. She asked, “Mother, do you want to learn? I can teach you!”
These words were inexplicably familiar…
However, Fang Jinyu never cared about it, so he nodded decisively.
Why would Fang Jinyu refuse to learn such a powerful secret technique?
Afterward, Fang Jinyu realized that he had learned nothing. It wasn’t that he hadn’t learned anything. Since he could obtain gains from the system, there was nothing that he couldn’t understand unless it was a restriction in his cultivation stage.
“No wonder Qing Fu would say that there is a problem with this secret technique…”
Fang Jinyu had already cultivated the secret technique at the beginner stage, and it was precisely because he was at the beginner stage that he deeply understood what Qing Fu meant by “there was a problem.”
If Fang Jinyu wanted to use the secret technique, he would have to pay the price of his lifespan.
He had to pay twice his lifespan!
In other words, Qing Fu had consumed her lifespan to make Shi Wushuang small.
It could be said to be a different kind of secret lifespan exchange technique.
Qing Fu had paid 500 years of her lifespan to obtain 99% of Shi Wushuang’s cultivation base. Shi Wushuang had exchanged 99% of her cultivation base for more than 200 years of lifespan!
Apart from that, there was also a limit to one’s cultivation base when using the secret technique.
An Immortal Ascension stage cultivator like Qing Fu could use the secret technique on Core Formation stage cultivators. However, an Incarnation stage cultivator like Fang Jinyu could only use it against Qi Condensation stage cultivators…
As for those below the Incarnation stage?
They weren’t qualified to use the secret technique!
“Even if I cultivate this secret technique to perfection, it’s still useless.”
Fang Jinyu’s mouth twitched.
Although Fang Jinyu’s lifespan far exceeded that of other Incarnation stage cultivators due to his night dragon body and was almost as long as an Immortal Ascension stage cultivator, he couldn’t withstand the consumption of this secret technique!
From Fang Jinyu’s perspective, using this secret technique was completely harmful, and he couldn’t benefit from it.
It was a secret technique that would make him sacrifice himself to achieve others.
For the spellcaster, if there was no childhood sweetheart, fiancée, or three-year promise, then it was completely beneficial.
“Hey! I’m doing this for your sake! Look! Haven’t you recovered from the aftereffects of being trapped in that coffin by that malicious ghost?” A certain little girl was trying her best to fool another little girl.
At this moment, Fang Jinyu, Qing Fu, and Shi Wushuang had already left the Ancient Immortal’s Path.
“Master Xia” had left a message for his junior sister, Lord Cultivator Yuanyu, saying that the path could lead to the immortal realm! However, if the path led to the immortal realm, why didn’t that malicious ghost go?
There was no such thing as rejecting ghosts in the immortal realm.
Moreover, although not all ghosts could reincarnate to reduce the difficulty of advancing, Immortal Ascension stage ghosts were no different from living beings.
However, the malicious ghost that had captured Shi Wushuang wasn’t in the Immortal Ascension stage.
However, it wasn’t in the Incarnation stage either.
It was because the malicious ghost’s original form was the rotten wooden coffin. After being infected by the blood of the First Immortal, it developed consciousness. Under the corrosion of the corpse’s death energy, it turned into a malicious ghost.
Its innate strength was extremely powerful and was almost ranked 9 in the Incarnation stage. If the immortal corpse in the coffin hadn’t disappeared, the malicious ghost would have erupted with the strength of the Immortal Ascension stage cultivator.
It was what Qing Fu told Fang Jinyu.
Although Fang Jinyu had divine consciousness, he was unable to “see” it.
Fang Jinyu asked the little girl, “Why does that ghost care so much about Wushuang?”
At this moment, Shi Wushuang’s small face was frowning, full of distrust towards Qing Fu’s nonsense. Her body had only become smaller, not her intelligence. She wasn’t as gullible as she was back then.
Although the problem with her body had indeed been solved, the “Brother Feiyu” that she had been thinking about for so long… He was going to become her Uncle Feiyu again!
At this moment, a certain little girl who was feeling distressed because Shi Wushuang wasn’t easy to fool immediately left Shi Wushuang behind happily and went to Fang Jinyu. She said, “Mother, it’s because that malicious ghost also wants to reincarnate!”
Qing Fu could finally change the topic openly!
Fang Jinyu raised his eyebrows. It didn’t seem to be a difficult thing for high-level ghosts.
Especially in the netherworld. According to the ghost cultivators who had come over, reincarnation was a technique everyone in the netherworld knew. After all, the benefits of ghosts reincarnating were too many!
“For other ghosts, it’s not difficult to reincarnate as long as they have the corresponding secret technique and patience, but this malicious ghost can’t. It’s because it wasn’t originally a ghost. It had only been corroded by the immortal corpse’s death energy to this extent.” Although Fang Jinyu had only said two words, he couldn’t stop the little girl from prying into his thoughts!
“Is that why it needs a person who defies fate as a medium?” Fang Jinyu remembered the incarnation of the malicious ghost and the words it had said at the beginning.
“I don’t know about that! After all, I’ve never been a ghost before.” Qing Fu spread her hands and asked curiously, “Mother, what is a person who defies fate? Why can’t I tell?”
Qing Fu muttered to herself as her large, clear eyes glanced at Shi Wushuang.
Qing Fu didn’t see anything special about Shi Wushuang.
“The person who defied fate was what the ghost incarnation of that malicious ghost told me at the beginning. As for who the person who defied fate is, I’m not too sure either, but I have some guesses about it…” Fang Jinyu stopped talking when he said it. However, he presented the information he had obtained from the “immortal receiving officer” in detail in his heart.
Shi Wushuang was already able to possess spiritual roots and would also contribute to heaven and earth. Therefore, she was targeted by some people and they wanted to use her as a stepping stone for them to reincarnate.
With Fang Jinyu’s help, Shi Wushuang not only changed her fate, but she also managed to form a first-grade core.
It was both a form of compensation from the Immortal Palace and her efforts to change her fate.
It was because the chances of a Core Formation stage cultivator with a first-grade core breaking through the Nascent Soul stage were very high!
“So it’s like this…” Although Fang Jinyu didn’t say it out loud, a certain thief in his heart had already “heard” everything.
“Brother Feiyu, Sister Qing Fu, what are you two talking about?” Shi Wushuang came over curiously.
Since it was too troublesome to explain to Shi Wushuang, Fang Jinyu chose to let a little girl spy on his psychological changes. It wasn’t that Shi Wushuang couldn’t know it. After hearing Shi Wushuang’s question, Fang Jinyu said, “I’ll send you back to see Daoist Brother Yin Wujiu, who is also your father.”
