337 The Dejected Gourd
“The reincarnation-river scripture and the dream of a thousand-year reincarnation technique each have their own merits.” Fang Jinyu looked at reincarnation with some pity because he didn’t dare to stay here for long. Thus, he immediately used the divine power in the heavenly book, the fixed immortal traveler.
As the old saying goes, one shouldn’t do anything more than three times.
The old saying made sense because Fang Jinyu had gone back to the Nine Desolations this time. There were no more problems along the way.
It was different from when Fang Jinyu used Qing Fu’s magic treasure. When he returned to the Nine Desolations, there were no strange phenomena in the world. It was as if he had returned very naturally.
At this moment, Fang Jinyu appeared near an immortal city in the Nine Desolations. Although he had never been to the immortal city, he wasn’t unfamiliar with it. It was because there was a vast stretch of polluted water in this place. The stench underground was endless, and it could be said to be famous far and near. He had only passed by once in his early years, and he had a deep impression of it.
“Why are there so many people around here?” Fang Jinyu suddenly revealed a surprised expression. With a sweep of his gaze, he realized that dozens of miles away, at the core of the polluted water region, there were many Foundation Establishment stage and Core Formation stage cultivators gathered. There were even a few Nascent Soul stage cultivators hidden in the crowd.
“Is there a treasure?”
Fang Jinyu made a reasonable guess. Afterward, he released his divine consciousness and probed there, but he found that it wasn’t the same as his guesses.
Two female cultivators were going to have a duel there!
The reason they chose such a godforsaken place was because there were too many onlookers when the two female cultivators were fighting. There were even people who kept shouting, “The wife and the mistress, stop fighting,” so the duel had to be stopped midway.
Fang Jinyu was speechless.
After understanding what was going on, Fang Jinyu instantly lost interest. He took a step forward, and his figure suddenly became illusory. When his figure condensed again, he had already appeared on the Tianling Sect’s Mount Xiaohe.
“Eh? You’re back!”
The first to notice Fang Jinyu was An Ruyin.
At this moment, the gourd looked dejected. Fang Jinyu couldn’t help but lean forward curiously. He pressed his hand on her forehead and used his divine sense to look at her entire body. After that, Fang Jinyu was even more puzzled.
It was because she wasn’t sick.
Fang Jinyu asked with concern, “What’s wrong with you? Why do you look as if you’ve been dumped for hundreds of years?” After all, An Ruyin was formed from a portion of his divine sense back then.
“Yueer doesn’t want me anymore. She owes me a bunch of elixirs and hasn’t even refined them before she ran away with her little spirit beast.”
“Her spirit beast changed its name to Yellow Crane Tower?” Fang Jinyu couldn’t help but complain. It was a terrible and inexplicably familiar scene.
“What Yellow Crane Tower?” An Ruyin was naturally dumbfounded, but she immediately stopped thinking about it. She began to tell Fang Jinyu why she was unhappy.
It turned out that after Xiao Youyue formed a first-grade core, she started to learn alchemy because she had more time. After that, she unexpectedly discovered that her talent for alchemy wasn’t bad.
Thus, Xiao Youyue was dragged by An Ruyin to the “mini elixir realm” to help refine elixirs.
However, although it was said to be helping, in reality, Xiao Youyue was doing all the work of refining elixirs. The gourd was slacking off at the side and even said righteously that she was helping Xiao Youyue accumulate experience in alchemy.
However, An Ruyin hadn’t lived such a good life for a few years when Xiao Youyue disappeared.
Xiao Youyue was brought to the origin realm by her spirit beast, Ruyi.
“The origin realm?”
Fang Jinyu’s eyes flashed slightly, and he couldn’t help but think.
Could it be that Xiao Youyue’s luck had undergone a “qualitative” change after she formed a first-grade core? Was it the reason she had such an opportunity?
There was no doubt that the origin realm was a realm filled with mystery. If one could enter the origin realm to cultivate, even if they couldn’t kill their way out of the encirclement, they would be able to soar to the heavens as long as they could leave the origin realm one day.
After all, in the “hardworking expert realm,” the competition was fierce and the techniques were extraordinary!
Fang Jinyu asked, “Did she say when she would be back?”
“No! That furball even said that it had to protect Xiao Youyue to cultivate her primordial spirit…” When the gourd said it, it became even more depressed. Its entire body was filled with all kinds of “negative energy.”
Decadent, depressed, lazy, giving up on everything, depressed… It could be said that there were all kinds of emotions, but none of them were “positive.”
It was because the only thing that motivated the gourd was to reap without sowing and sit back and enjoy the fruits of others’ labor.
“Becoming an Incarnation stage cultivator?”
Fang Jinyu raised his eyebrows and asked, “Xiao Youyue’s spirit beast suddenly made such a move. Is it because the spirit beast has recovered its cultivation?”
“That’s right, that furball was with that ball in the land of refining the heavenly elixir for a while. After that furball gave the ball in the land of refining the heavenly elixir some secret alchemy techniques, it found a crystal and gave that furball. And after eating that crystal, not only did that furball recover its cultivation, it even broke through the Incarnation stage.”
The dejected gourd wasn’t telling a complete story, but it wasn’t difficult to understand what she meant. She had “invited the wolf into the house.”
Although it wasn’t the same, it was somewhat similar.
Fang Jinyu didn’t blame An Ruyin, because he felt that Xiao Youyue’s luck had played a crucial role in this matter.
After all, everything was too coincidental.
The spirit beast Ruyi kept trying to curry favor with Nanli’s second reincarnation and it got a strange item from it. What was more interesting was that not only did Fang Jinyu know about the strange crystal, but he also carried one with him as a collection.
However, such a mysterious crystal helped the spirit beast Ruyi break through the Incarnation stage in one go. To Fang Jinyu, it was just a rare grade 8 heavenly material and earthly treasure.
It was because there were over a hundred such strange crystals in the “mini elixir realm.”
Thinking of this, Fang Jinyu thought of something else, so he asked, “Are there any outstanding cultivators in the Nine Desolations now?”
Xiao Youyue had left the Nine Desolations for decades. In other words, there were only two “female leads” left in the Nine Desolates.
Afterward, Fang Jinyu heard the two names he wanted to hear.
“There are two female cultivators. One was Yi Yuaner, and the other was Chi Suzi. They used less than a hundred years to cultivate from rank 1 to rank 9 in the Core Formation stage. After that, they broke through the Nascent Soul stage without any obstacles…” When the dejected gourd said it, it became even more dejected. At the same time, Fang Jinyu could tell from her words that she was jealous.
It was because she relied on the “mini elixir realm” left behind by Fang Jinyu to break through rank 8 in the Core Formation stage.
“Without any obstacles…”
Fang Jinyu’s expression changed slightly. He remembered that when he was in the polluted water area, he had sensed two Nascent Soul stage cultivators nearby who hadn’t undergone the lightning tribulation.
“It can’t be such a coincidence, right?”
“Besides, did Yi Yuaner and Chi Suzi break through the Nascent Soul stage through trickery?”
Thus, Fang Jinyu quickly released his divine consciousness.
With a thought, Fang Jinyu’s divine consciousness crossed a distance of tens of millions of miles and directly locked onto the polluted water area.
“These two guys don’t play by the rules because of their cheating!” Yi Yuaner and Chi Suzi hadn’t undergone the lightning tribulation, but they were stronger than the Nascent Soul stage cultivators who had undergone the lightning tribulation with their cheats!
Therefore, Fang Jinyu raised his hand and pointed at the void.
Fang Jinyu made up for the lack of lightning tribulation for the two “female leads!”
“Tang Sanzang has 81 difficulties, but he has to undergo all the difficulties. Although the two of you cheat, it’s better to be down-to-earth…”
