Lü Chuyi had no idea that, instead of it being Su Yu’s request, the little kylin had decided to transform on its own! However, the misunderstanding was purely coincidental.
“I know it is a live spirit. The question I am asking is, why did his spiritual pet transform into your appearance? Could he have acquired feelings for you after having spent some time with you?” Gu Taixu stared at Su Yu in an unfriendly manner.
Lü Chuyi’s facial expression turned somewhat unnatural. She pushed away her hair from her face, then tucked it behind her ear and said, “Perhaps…”
Gu Taixu slapped his palm on the circular ring and a coldness flashed in his eyes. His abrupt action did not match his elegant composure at all!
He trusted Lü Chuyi and did not think that she would do anything unforgivable behind his back. So, he wasn’t angry at her. Instead, he was upset at the fact that, in all of the Eighteen Blessed and Heavenly Lands, everyone knew that Lü Chuyi belonged to him, yet this man still dared to show his affections for her!
Seeing his intense reaction, Lü Chuyi hesitated momentarily, then said in a weak tone, “Brother Taixu, forget it. I believe he did not really mean anything by it. Let me talk to him personally. It would not be appropriate for you to deal with this personally, as it would only harm your image.”
Gu Taixu heard her words and calmed down slightly. Indeed, if he were to personally deal with this, the audience would only mock him for it.
“Alright.” After agreeing with her, Gu Taixu approached the three Almighty Divine Master Yin-Yang old men who had come from the Purple Cloud Palace. He then said, “Yin-Yang Seniors, are you certain that the Real Spirit Divine Egg that was stolen by Divine Master Tu Mo is now here in the Mysterious Heavenly Divine Pavilion?”
Gu Taixu was very concerned about this. The Yin-Yang old man who he had spoken to was the Almighty Divine Master who had cast the circular ring that held the gap in the sky open. He had a head full of white hair and his left eye was pitch black, while his right eye was white as snow. This made his eyes look extremely odd.
He was a disciple of the True Man of the Purple Cloud. As such, he had very strong capabilities and had reached the frightening level of a Later Stage Almighty Divine Master.
“Junior, there is no need to be concerned. My eyes are able to see past all of Yin and Yang. I can even communicate with dead spirits. In fact, I have confirmation from the dead spirit in the Mysterious Heavenly Divine Pavilion that Divine Master Tu Mo fell in the Mysterious Heavenly Divine Pavilion. The Real Spirit Divine Egg that he stole from the Master is also in the Mysterious Heavenly Divine Pavilion,” the Yin-Yang old man said.
He then added, “In fact, we have news that Red Blood Palace’s Mo Tianxuan gave orders to Soul Seizing Palace to find Divine Master Tu Mo’s remains. However, the two people who were sent by Mo Tianxuan have both gone missing. Neither Soul Seizing Palace’s Chou Zeming nor Red Blood Palace’s Shangguan Qinger appeared at the Exchange Festival. I think there must have been some accident. Hence, we are uncertain as to whether they have found the remains of Divine Master Tu Mo.”
Hearing this, Gu Taixu frowned deeply. “The Real Spirit Divine Egg is the most important thing now! Even if we do not get it ourselves, we cannot allow Red Blood Palace to get it!”
As they spoke, the two simultaneously looked at the three Divine Masters. Their bodies were covered with a demonic energy, so it was difficult to see their figures clearly.
Seeing how Gu Taixu’s attention had been diverted, Lü Chuyi let out a sigh of relief. Her beautiful pupils shifted gently and, through the circular ring, she secretly observed Su Yu.
On the Divine Sparrow Stage, the first disciple had been selected. He stepped forward to face the crowd.
As he flipped his palm, he retrieved a golden fruit from his bosom. It was the Incredible Feather Spiritual Pomegranate!
Within its gold color, there was a milder shade of green. This meant it had not fully ripened. Compared to the Incredible Feather Spiritual Pomegranate that Su Yu had cultivated for eighty years, it was at least two levels lower.
“This is an Incredible Feather Spiritual Pomegranate! I want to exchange it for two crystals, and I will not accept anything less!” As soon as he spoke, a large number of people below the stage began to show interest in the item, commenting among themselves…
“Tsk tsk. Only two crystals! It is only in a place like the Mysterious Heavenly Divine Pavilion that someone would so desperately want to get rid of it in exchange for two crystals. If it were in Jiuzhou, it would at least demand a price of three crystals!”
“I want it!”
“Hold on! I want it too! I will give you an additional crystal fragment for it!”
“Two crystals and two fragments!”
Finally, the newly ripened Incredible Feather Spiritual Pomegranate was sold for two crystals and nine additional crystal fragments. Su Yu, who was observing from the side, finally understood the usage and value of crystals at an auction such as this.
He had now discovered that crystals were not only used for Vital Energy, but that they could even be used as a form of currency! This discovery made Su Yu very happy.
This was because, in order for Ling Xiaotian to recover, it would require a large amount of Vital Energy, and according to Yun Yazi, the only way to save him in the Zhenlong Continent was to breakthrough as a Fairy. However, there was a better way now, which was to collect a large number of crystals that contained the Vital Energy!
However, in Jiuzhou, crystals were very expensive items. They were divided into three categories, which included primary crystals, intermediate crystals, and advanced crystals. Usually, the intermediate crystals contained very strong Vital Energy, which would not be used as currency, only for cultivation.
The advanced crystals were rare items in Jiuzhou, so they were also very hard to come by. Hence, it was only the primary crystals that were used as currency, and even then, most people tried to limit their use, as they could still be used for cultivation.
Therefore, the most abundant form of currency were the crystal fragments. It took ten crystal fragments to equal a complete crystal. People mostly used such fragments to trade.
As he was finally understanding all of this, Su Yu was filled with excitement and anticipation. He had collected quite a few treasures in the Mysterious Heavenly Divine Pavilion, and he wondered how many crystals he could exchange them for!
“The second person is Jin Chen!” Sheng Xuelian called out.
As Jin Chen came to the front, he held a jade box, his face revealing a mysterious smile. “I am sure everyone here still remembers clearly the big battle that occurred just four days ago?”
His words caused the audience to turn silent, everyone showing looks of fear on their faces. This was because four days ago, disastrous flames and disastrous thunder had appeared in their land, and there was a great demonic energy that filled the air, as well as the scent of a bloody sea.
The epic scene had shaken the entire Mysterious Heavenly Divine Pavilion. It was almost like the world was about to end!
Sheng Xuelian squinted her eyes, her gaze landing on the jade box in Jin Chen’s hands. She then said, “We have only a limited amount of time. Hurry up!”
