317 The Cultivator Who Ranks 1 in the Qi Condensation Stage Uses a Hundred Years
Yin Wujiu and his wife were still present because Shi Wushuang had given her parents a rare life-prolonging item that could be called a divine item at her “peak” times!
The item was called Concentric Living Wood.
It required the husband and wife to nurture it with their magical power for 30 years before it could take effect.
As long as the couple remained in love, no matter what kind of predicament they faced, they didn’t complain at all. After that, this extraordinary item could extend one’s life by 600 years!
From an investment point of view, it was a huge profit.
However, from the perspective of an immortal cultivator… It was no different from a weak item.
In the cultivation world, couples who were able to remain loving and never complain were usually people with extremely high status, who were born into great families, and whose cultivation bases weren’t low!
Otherwise, it would be useless if ordinary cultivators obtained it.
After all, there were too many temptations in the cultivation world!
It was especially true in the Cave Lake Realm, where spiritual energy was scarce!
The lack of spiritual energy wasn’t a problem for the aristocratic families who had secret realms, but it was fatal for ordinary cultivators who didn’t have any foundation. It led to the strong temptation of just a few spirit stones.
Even spirit stones were in such a situation, let alone elixirs, spirit tools, magic treasures, and other cultivation resources that were firmly controlled by the major families.
The temptation was getting stronger and stronger!
Under such harsh conditions, how many cultivators could meet the requirements of this extraordinary item?
It could only be said that there was a reason why Yin Wujiu and his wife could give birth to a daughter who almost became the true female lead. From their appearance, they looked like an old man and a young wife, but they had lived a life that didn’t match their current realm.
Yin Wujiu was still ranked 9 in the Core Formation stage.
As for his wife, she was still a Foundation Establishment stage cultivator. The difference was that she was now ranked 8 in the Foundation Establishment stage.
After all, she had already lived for hundreds of years. No matter how lacking her aptitude and resources were, she could still rely on the accumulation of time and effort to cultivate from rank 1 to rank 8 in the Foundation Establishment stage.
For breaking through rank 9 in the Foundation Establishment stage, it represented the perfection of a major realm. It wasn’t something that could be done just by desperately cultivating.
Now, the couple was no longer living in the Demon-extinguishing Immortal City.
As the object suppressed by the Zhudao Sect ran out, the Demon-extinguishing Sea gradually lost its former divine might. The few insufferably arrogant Sin Beast Kings in the sea area had also disappeared.
Without the danger in the Demon-extinguishing Sea, the Demon-extinguishing Immortal City would be useless.
Thus, Yin Wujiu brought his wife and found an even more remote place to live in seclusion. Since the spiritual energy in this place was almost nonexistent, the ones with the highest cultivation base were only a few cultivators who ranked 3 in the Qi Condensation stage.
There wasn’t even a middle-stage Qi Condensation cultivator.
Fang Jinyu had arrived silently, and Yin Wujiu and his wife were pleasantly surprised when they learned that “Han Feiyu” had broken through the Incarnation stage.
Because Fang Jinyu was very friendly, he still addressed them as “Fellow Daoists.”
“Fellow Daoist Han, who is this? Why does she look like my daughter?” Only then did Yin Wujiu notice a certain short-legged girl at the side.
“Father, it’s me!”
Shi Wushuang jumped up and down to greet him because she wasn’t as tall as the table.
Yin Wujiu and his wife were dumbfounded. After hundreds of years, why was their daughter growing smaller and smaller?
Fang Jinyu explained, “This is indeed Wushuang. She accidentally entered an ancient land and was trapped there for more than a hundred years. Not only did her Core Formation stage cultivation disappear, but her body also became smaller. Fortunately, it wasn’t just her body that became smaller, but her lifespan also recovered.”
Afterward, Yin Wujiu’s wife started to blame herself.
It was because Shi Wushuang’s encounter before she accidentally entered the land of the ancient immortals was caused by her helping her mother find a breakthrough spirit herb.
Back then, there was a shocking piece of news that someone had discovered a young Purple-golden Lightning Bamboo.
The Purple-golden Lightning Bamboo was a heaven-and-earth spiritual item, so there was naturally no need to elaborate.
If the spiritual item could be fed with one’s blood essence for a long time, it could even help one comprehend the essence of cultivation.
“I remember now. That Purple-golden Lightning Bamboo should have been snatched away by those people!” When Shi Wushuang heard her mother’s words, she couldn’t help but reveal a vexed expression.
Fang Jinyu said in surprise, “So, the news about the Purple-golden Lightning Bamboo is true?” After all, the spiritual item had always been in a legendary state.
Although Fang Jinyu had a bamboo slip made from Purple-golden Lightning Bamboo, how could it compare to a real spiritual item?
“That’s right! Brother Feiyu, you don’t know how despicable that person from the Taichu Sect is! The Purple-golden Lightning Bamboo appeared in the territory of the Taichu Sect, but the news still spread. Brother Feiyu, guess why?” Shi Wushuang nodded repeatedly. As she said it, she clenched her fists tightly.
“It’s nothing more than going back on your word and killing people to silence them. After that, it angered everyone…” Fang Jinyu shook his head slightly.
“Brother Feiyu, how did you know?” Shi Wushuang couldn’t help but be stunned because the truth was exactly as Fang Jinyu had said. The people from the Taichu Sect had originally gathered the rogue cultivators and promised that as long as they went in to explore, all the gains would be divided equally with them!
However, after discovering the Purple-golden Lightning Bamboo, the Taichu Sect’s attitude changed.
Or, more accurately, it was its attitude from the beginning.
It was just that, to make those rogue cultivators willing to risk their lives, the Taichu Sect had been putting on a show until now.
Fang Jinyu couldn’t help but laugh.
What’s so interesting about it? Back then, just because Fang Jinyu had no power in the immortal sect, wasn’t he bullied enough?
It was only because Fang Jinyu’s cultivation had broken through quickly that he had reduced a lot of encounters.
One had to know that the Tianling Sect had always had his senior brother, Grandmaster Meng, to maintain the balance!
If it were any other immortal sect, those aristocratic families would be the ones who were truly lawless!
The so-called righteous path was just a cover.
Then, Fang Jinyu told Yin Wujiu about other things. Although Yin Wujiu had lived in seclusion, he knew a lot about the cultivation world.
After all, cultivators loved to gossip.
Yin Wujiu said, “Fellow Daoist Han, you might not know this, but those Sin Beast Kings have disappeared, but they haven’t died yet. Someone once saw a Sin Beast King break through the Nascent Soul stage and join an immortal sect.” Fang Jinyu was asking about the whereabouts of the Sin Beast Kings after the Demon-extinguishing Sea disappeared.
Fang Jinyu nodded. It was within his expectations. After all, those Sin Beast Kings were more cunning than the previous ones. Not only did they take the initiative to attack the immortal cities because they were coerced by their subordinates, but some also discussed with the cultivators of the immortal cities in advance to betray the sin beasts.
After that, Fang Jinyu asked some other questions. Finally, he mentioned Yin Xiaoxiao. Only then did he know that the girl, who was initially round and then slim, had already aged.
It was because she had failed to break through the Core Formation stage.
A Foundation Establishment stage cultivator’s lifespan was less than 200 years. It was rare to see someone like Yin Wujiu’s wife, so she couldn’t be considered an example.
As Yin Xiaoxiao had never married, she had been cultivating with her brother, Yin Wujiu. After all, no matter how ordinary a Core Formation stage cultivator was, it was still possible for him to guide a Foundation Establishment stage cultivator.
The place where she was buried after she passed away was also nearby.
Knowing about Yin Xiaoxiao’s grave, Fang Jinyu had no reason not to pay his respects. Although it was only for the living, it was also a way to express his gratitude.
Fang Jinyu lit an incense stick and was about to leave when he suddenly realized that the grave was filled with Yin energy. Soon, a slender and elegant girl’s figure appeared.
The girl’s figure was not big. It was only the size of a human palm.
Ever since she appeared, she has been staring at Fang Jinyu.
“Is it formed by Yin Xiaoxiao’s obsession?” Fang Jinyu was surprised. After that, he thought about it and casually grabbed her in his hand.
At the same time, Fang Jinyu tapped her forehead.
Instantly, the ghost cultivation technique was reflected in it. What was different from the Nine Desolations’ “simplified” version was that the ghost cultivation technique that Fang Jinyu had “spread” was extremely complete, and it also contained several powerful ghost cultivation divine powers.
“Is this Xiaoxiao?”
Yin Wujiu had also arrived. His wife wasn’t here because she was talking to Shi Wushuang. After all, they hadn’t seen each other for many years.
Fang Jinyu said, “It’s her, and it’s not her. She has already forgotten everything. However, I taught her a ghost cultivation technique, so you don’t have to worry about her becoming a bloodthirsty ghost.” Afterward, he took out a spirit tool and placed it inside before handing it to Yin Wujiu.
Yin Wujiu reached out and took it. Even though he could tell who Yin Xiaoxiao’s obsession was for, he knew very well that his sister was indeed not worthy of an Incarnation stage lord cultivator, not to mention that she had already become a ghost.
From what he knew, “Han Feiyu” had always been an ascetic cultivator and had no interest in anything else.
After paying his respects to Yin Xiaoxiao, Fang Jinyu left with Shi Wushuang and his virtual body.
As for a certain little girl, she never appeared at all.
According to her opinion, she and Yin Wujiu weren’t familiar with each other, and she was “afraid of society,” so she didn’t go.
However, soon after Fang Jinyu left Yin Wujiu’s place of seclusion, Qing Fu’s figure suddenly appeared out of thin air. After that, she urged, “Mother, let’s go to that road again!”
“Didn’t you say that there was a problem with that road? We might not be able to enter the immortal realm even if we reach the end. Moreover, the immortal corpse that was originally buried in the rotten wooden coffin is still a huge hidden danger…”
Fang Jinyu said in confusion. These were the words that the little girl said at that time.
“So, we just have to go around in circles and not go anywhere else!”
Fang Jinyu asked in surprise, “Can you give me a reason?”
“I want to try and see if I can cut off a piece of that road so that I can bring it back.” A certain little girl was well-versed in the saying, “Things on the roadside belonged to nobody. Whoever finds them will get them.”
Fang Jinyu was speechless. He couldn’t believe that Qing Fu even wanted to tear down the Ancient Immortal’s Path!
However, what did it have to do with him?
Therefore, Fang Jinyu agreed. After all, he was only accompanying them to take a look. If Qing Fu wanted him to make a move, there was nothing he could do. Although the Incarnation stage cultivators could be considered op-notch experts in both the Nine Desolations and the Cave Lake Realm, on the Ancient Immortal’s Path…
He was most likely at the bottom.
Fang Jinyu said, “But before we go to that small path, let’s go to the nearby immortal gate first.” He was interested in the Purple-golden Lightning Bamboo.
After all, the spiritual item was originally found by the roadside.
