As expected of the reincarnation of the Golden Cicada. There was no fear in him, even when facing a dragon like himself. Instead, he was curious.
"My lord, can you give me a bite of your dragon meat? I heard that I could grow taller after having some dragon meat." Tang Sanzang said as he extended his pudgy hand and stroked Jiang Fengs dragon claw. Because at his height, he was only as tall as his claw.
"Roar. You eat meat even when youre a monk? Dont you know who I am? Arent you afraid that I would eat you?" Jiang Feng said to Tang Sanzang.
"Even when the meat and wine pass through my stomach, Buddha remains flowing within my heart. As per my understanding, Buddhism does not have so many restrictions. In my heart, Buddhism is bliss, and to achieve bliss I must be free. I will do whatever I want. That is Buddhism. Those proud and proper Buddhists couldnt do what they wanted to do. And is that not in itself lying?" Tang Sanzang could understand the beast tongue.
He then continued in his baby talk tone, "And you wont eat me. Because you need me!"
Oh my. This kids understanding of Buddhism is quite unique. Thats why in mythology it is said that Tang Sanzangs understanding of Buddhism is far beyond Buddhas.
Looking at the little Tang Sanzang in front of him, Jiang Feng smiled.
"Then, tell me. Why am I in need of you?" Asked Jiang Feng.
"I do not know. But I do know that you will ask me for something!" Tang Sanzang shook his head and said.
Jiang Feng extended his dragon head and narrowed his eyes in front of Tang Sanzang. Jiang Feng then thought to himself, Looks like I do have something that I need to ask of him. I wonder if this little kid can use the Cleansing Mantra to break the curse on Xiao Longnu.
As he thought of that, he took out the Qiankun Gourd and released Xiao Longnu from within. She polymorphed into human form and walked to the front of Tang Sanzang.
"Little monk, can you help me break the curse on her?" Jiang Feng asked Tang Sanzang.
"It is difficult to break the curse. While my Cleansing Mantra can cleanse the curse little by little, it will need some time. If you are willing to let her stay by my side and give me the time I need, I will break the curse on her!" Tang Sanzang said as he stroked his chin after scanning her.
"How much time?" Asked Jiang Feng.
"At least three months!" Tang Sanzang said.
"Alright." Jiang Feng then turned to Xiao Longnu and said, "Xiao Longnu, stay by Tang Sanzangs side for the next three months and let him cleanse the curse on you. I will take this time to go to the Five Fingers Mountain and see if I can get some Moon Essence from Violetglow. If I have them, I will come to you."
"Yes," Xiao Longnu nodded.
"It is not convenient for My Lady to enter Jinshan Temple with me. Take this, and I would be able to bring you back to the temple." Seeing that Xiao Longnu had agreed, he took out a pill and gave it to her.
She accepted the pill, looked at it, and frowned. However, she took the pill in the end.
In the next moment, Xiao Longnu returned to her White Dragon form. Next, she coiled within the air and fell onto the Earth. When she landed on the ground, she became a white horse.
"White Dragon Horse!" Jiang Feng exclaimed in surprise after seeing her transformation and seemingly remembered something.
"Alright, I have promised you to break the curse on her. This counts as a request from you. Now, slice me some dragon meat from you," Tang Sanzang said to Jiang Feng.
"Oh, hell no!" Jiang Feng rolled his eyes at him.
"Its fine if you dont give me some, then I wont help her return to her dragon form," Tang Sanzang said and gave him a sly smile, showing his dimples.
Jiang Feng was speechless when he heard Tang Sanzang. He did not expect a kid this small to be so smart. As expected of the reincarnation of the most intelligent Golden Cicada.
However, he would never cut a piece of meat from himself. His sense of pain was very high, it would be extremely excruciating for him to cut a piece of himself out.
Luckily, he still had the Earthcover Dragon meat that he transmuted from last time.
Helplessly, he took out a piece of Earthcover Dragon meat from his spatial bracelet and gave it to Tang Sanzang.
"Ho, I did not expect you to have Divine Dragon Meat. This is good business. Come, let us go to the mountain," Little Tang Sanzang put away the dragon meat and headed back to the mountain, shaking his buttocks. Then, he turned to Jiang Feng with a smile on his face. "My Lord, you will still request for things from me. I await the next time you come to me. Also, the aura of resentment on you is very heavy. Do not be enraged easily or there would be numerous woes afterward."
With that, Little Tang Sanzang clasped his hands together and closed his eyes as he recited a Buddhist Sutra. He looked cute, and not at all like the sly little child from a few moments before.
As he recited the sutra, a green mist began to enshroud Xiao Longnu, cleansing the curse within her body.
"Damn, this little kid who hasnt even grown up is so cocky!" Seeing Tang Sanzang leaving as he rode on Xiao Longnu, Jiang Feng rolled his eyes.
But at the same time, he knew that Tang Sanzang was not a plot quest. If not, he would have triggered it just now.
After letting Xiao Longnu stay by Tang Sanzangs side, he then rode on the Monster Cloud and headed toward the Five Fingers Mountain.
Disappointingly, Violetglow completely ignored him and would not give him any Moon Essence.
Looks like Xiao Longnu will have to remain by Tang Sanzangs side for the time being. I hope I can find some Divine Dragon Blood to break the curse on her, Jiang Feng thought to himself as he fruitlessly left the Five Fingers Mountain by riding on the Monster Cloud.
Even though Xiao Longnu had been cursed, her power was still not considered weak and she could help him with some of his problems.
However, he had also hoped that Xiao Longnu could have her curse broken so that she could return to her previous state, being at the peak of the Immortal Level. Then, she would be able to help him with the Uproar in the Heaven plot quest.
"I should find the remaining Donghuang Bell fragments, and transmute some more evolution pills as well as finding more Divine Dragon blood."
With his followers revived and him obtaining the Ancient City, he needed to increase his power at this stage and find the other Donghuang Bell fragments.
Once players had reached level 30, they could change their class a second time. After this class change, all their stats would be increased by 30%. As players could easily find equipment, once a player had reached level 40 and gotten a set of White-Silver Equipment or higher, their stats would surpass his.
If he were to stop fusing or evolving, his power would not grow. Unlike the players, their power could continuously grow as long as they level up.
In order to find the Donghuang Bell fragments, he would need to use the Divine Fate Compass.
With that in mind, he took out the Divine Fate Compass and was ready to use it to find the Donghuang Bell fragments.
"Treasure Hunt!" After he took out the compass, he then used the Treasure Hunt ability.
Next, the Divine Fate Compass began to turn, and Shen Luos image soon began to appear on the compass.
"Master, please tell me the kind of treasures that you seek, or we can seek one randomly!" Shen Luo said.
"Donghuang Bell fragments!"
Shen Luo closed her eyes and sat with her legs crossed on the Divine Fate Compass.
The compass rotated and the runes on it floated upward, shooting out in all directions after turning into rays of light.
Not long after, Shen Luo opened her eyes and said to Jiang Feng, "There are three Donghuang Bell fragments nearby. One is near Sun Wukongs body at the Five Fingers Mountain, its coordinate is 4523.9341. The other two are located around 50km to the west of the Five Fingers Mountain, at the Battlefield of the Divines and Infernals. Their coordinates are 124243.3533 and 4232.04312."
"Battlefield of the Divines and Infernals?" Jiang Feng was slightly surprised and quickly opened the map to have a look.
Only to see that there was no "Battlefield of the Divines and Infernals" on the map. That meant that like the Five Fingers Mountain, it was located in a special area. It could only be accessed if someone were to lead him.
I wont be able to grab the fragment near Sun Wukongs body for now. If thats the case, I should go to the Battlefield of the Divines and Infernals. Since its called the Battlefield of the Divines and Infernals, that must be the place where they had a great conflict ten thousand years ago. Perhaps, there are even some treasures inside! With that in mind, he immediately put away the Divine Fate Compass and headed to the West as he rode on the Monster Cloud.
Since Shen Luo had given him the coordinates, that meant that he might be able to find the entrance to the Battlefield of the Divines and Infernals. As he thought of the existence of treasures within the battlefield, and perhaps even primordial artifacts, he became extremely giddy.
