All of a sudden, the woman looked in surprise at her belly and exclaimed, “My injuries!”
She was clear about the state of her injuries. She was attacked by the central prefecture’s King projection, and a part of his power was left in her body, which prevented her injuries from healing and caused them to become even worse as time passed.
She had even lost consciousness, and even if the five All Creation Old Monsters didn’t hunt her down, she knew that she would still die due to her grave injuries. However, suddenly, her injuries had been healed completely!
Did that old lecher treat my injuries? The woman’s mind raced, as she now understood why he had removed her clothes! After she understood that it was all just a misunderstanding, most of her anger disappeared.
Who is he really? He’s just a trifling Level Two Fairy, yet he was able to get rid of the power that was left by the central prefecture’s king! It’s really shocking! The woman was really shocked by this as she thought of it!
On her own, she would have needed, at the very least, a month to get rid of that remnant power, but Su Yu had cleared it completely in such a short period of time, and all while she was still unconscious! The woman felt like Su Yu’s true status was quite mysterious and was surely not that of an ordinary Level Two Fairy’s!
She tried revolving her Vital Energy, and when she verified that the inside of her body was also in good condition, the woman finally relaxed. However, when she stopped revolving her Vital Energy, a look of surprise appeared on her face. She then extended her fair hand, and wisps of a black fog started rising up from her palm.
If Su Yu was present, he surely would have recognized it instantly. This was the black fog that Su Yu had found extremely difficult to clear. Su Yu had just absorbed a wisp of it, so a great amount of it was still inside the woman’s body.
“How’s this possible? A wisp of the Ghost Prison’s Great Emperor’s extreme evil ghost energy was cleared!” Delight appeared suddenly on the woman’s face as she realized what had happened.
The extreme evil ghost energy was known to be a taboo-like power, and only a single person possessed it… The Ghost Prison’s Great Emperor! In the humans’ and ghosts’ great war 100 years ago, the Ghost Prison’s Great Emperor had used ten Underworld Pearls and his extreme evil ghost energy to crush all of Jiuzhou’s experts. Among the myriad experts of Jiuzhou, only the past central prefecture’s king, Shen Yichen, was capable of fighting him.
Whenever the extremely evil ghost energy was mentioned, the expressions of all of the All Creation Old Monsters that had participated in the past battle would turn grave. This was because, back then, many All Creation Old Monsters were killed by the Ghost Prison’s Great Emperor. Hence, they were all aware that All Creation experts were just like frail ants compared to the Ghost Prison’s Great Emperor.
The ghost energy that was left in the woman’s body was from this past great battle. The extremely evil ghost energy had spread to her and invaded her body. During the past 100 years, she had tried everything, while using all of her knowledge as an All Creation Old Monster to deal with it, but it was useless.
The extremely evil ghost energy was still in her body, and she had to constantly suppress. Otherwise, the desire to kill would overtake her mind and she would turn into a ghost! It was because of this that she hadn’t had any time to cultivate in the past 100 years, so she was obliged to cope with the extremely evil ghost energy at all times.
Also, her cultivation hadn’t increased at all, so it was still at the same level as it had been 100 years ago. As such, she had already given up hope. She felt like it would be impossible to get rid of it, that is, unless a person whose power surpassed the Ghost Prison’s Great Emperor’s appeared in Jiuzhou.
However, she got a nice surprise on this day. While she was unconscious for a short time, a part of the extremely evil ghost energy in her body was cleared by a mysterious old man! She couldn’t help but wonder whether this old man was really just a Level Two Fairy, and the more she mulled it over, the more she felt like she had probably run into a great expert!
After all, it would be impossible for even her to escape five All Creation Old Monsters, let alone a trifling Fairy! Moreover, he was still capable of getting rid of the central prefecture’s king’s power so quickly! And… He had even cleared a part of the Ghost Prison’s Great Emperor’s power!
After she summarized these points in her mind, she came to the conclusion that there was a fifty percent chance that she had run into a great expert who was living in seclusion. As the woman, Tianxuan, thought of this, her anger disappeared, while gratitude, as well as some guilt, welled up in her heart.
She then said, “Senior, many thanks for helping me. I really can’t thank you enough.”
As she thought about what had happened, she felt remorseful. It was probably her actions that had angered that senior. Thus, he had cleared just a wisp of the extremely evil ghost energy in her body before leaving her.
If she had kept her calm back then, an entirely different scene would have unfolded. She ended up missing a good chance for nothing, so it was natural that she regretted it now.
I wonder how can I find that senior again? The woman thought as she sighed softly. Her heart was filled with gratitude for that mysterious old man.
“I just cared about my safety, and I almost implicated him, but he didn’t get angry, but instead helped me selflessly. He’s surely a person of virtue and prestige, who is living in seclusion,” the woman then muttered softly.
All of a sudden, a breeze blew at her, causing her sleeves to flutter. She was startled by it and reached to her sleeves subconsciously, only to find them empty.
Her expression stiffened as she asked, “Where is my Flying Guillotine?”
She then remembered clearly that she had hidden the Flying Guillotine in her sleeves before she had fainted, so even when she fell down, the guillotine should have still followed her. Hence, the only possible explanation for its absences was that it had been taken by someone!
Moreover, this thief had to be someone who possessed outstanding techniques that were capable of fettering the Flying Guillotine! That person could be none other than that old man!
After she returned to her senses, the woman’s face became flushed. The senior living in seclusion, who she considered to be a person of virtue and prestige, was unexpectedly just a thief!
She unexpectedly spouted a mouthful of blood upon this realization. She was infuriated!
She clenched her fists, gritted her teeth, and emitted a deafening and angry shout, “Old lecher, I won’t forgive you for this!”
Su Yu was oblivious to everything that had just occurred here. As such, he didn’t know that he had infuriated an All Creation Old Monster to the point that she had puked blood.
At this moment, he had just finished swallowing two Primordial Chaos Vital Pills. A single fourth grade Primordial Chaos Vital Pill possessed great medicinal energy and also expanded his Energy Sea quickly, but it still didn’t manage to expand it to the Level Three Fairy Realm, even after a long while.
Thus, he was left without a choice, and he could only swallow the fifth grade Primordial Chaos Vital Pill that the small kylin had made. This pill was considered a rare high grade pill among all of the spirit pills, and its continued energy was far greater than the fourth grade Primordial Chaos Vital Pill’s.
After he swallowed it, he felt like his Energy Sea erupted and rose drastically. When the medicinal energy dispersed, the size of the Outer and Inner Dantians in Su Yu’s body also rose, vastly surpassing a Level Three Fairy’s. In fact, they almost reached the Level Four Fairy Realm!
The combination of his Outer and Inner Dantians’ Vital Energy caused the quantity of his Vital Energy to rival a Level Five Fairy’s! When he advanced to the Level Three Fairy Realm, Su Yu’s fleshly body’s power increased exponentially. If he used his First Dragon’s body power, it would increase even more!
As for his Soul Power, it only increased a slight amount. So, if he just depended on his cultivation advancement alone, his soul’s power’s growth would be quite slow.
“Who knows when he will deliver the Heart Refining Mortal Dust Liquid’s seeds to me?” Su Yu was concerned about this ancient elixir, as it could help middle-stage Fairies raise their cultivations.
However, what was most important now was that it could strengthen one’s soul power. Now that he had already advanced to the Level Three Fairy Realm, he could go back to the sanctum and get the Nine Suns Cosmos Sword Formation! Su Yu was filled with expectation as he thought of this book.
After 10 days had passed, Su Yu returned to the sanctum and discovered that the sanctum was still flourishing as much as it had been before. When he passed by the side of the Carp Leaping Over Dragon Gate, he was surprised to discover that it had been activated, and many people were trying it! There were even some people among them whose powers had reached the Divine Master Realm!
“Even the inner sanctum’s disciples came here?” Su Yu couldn’t understand it, and he wondered… What could they possibly get from taking part in the Carp Leaping Over Dragon Gate’s trial?
Besides proving their potentials, they could only get a Fishdragon Badge and a special privilege. They couldn’t get any other benefits.
Moreover, they still had to pay 100,000 merit points to challenge the Carp Leaping Over Dragon Gate. Such a sum was astronomical, even for inner sanctum’s disciples.
Su Yu was greatly puzzled by this, and he couldn’t understand why they cared about the Carp Leaping Over Dragon Gate at all. But, what surprised him even more was that he saw the little demoness, Gongsun Wuxie, in a Dragon Pillar!
She was now standing in the 50th layer, and she couldn’t take another step, even after a long while. In the end, she gritted her teeth and gave up, while panting with rage. It seemed like she was quite dejected.
“The 50th layer! It seems like it was her phantom image that was once left there?” Su Yu muttered to himself.
The 50th layer was the layer that the little demoness had reached in the past, but Su Yu had surpassed her later and extinguished her phantom image, which was then replaced by Su Yu’s own phantom image. He really didn’t expect that the little demoness was also obsessed with the Carp Leaping Over Dragon Gate!
He immediately flew to her and called out her name, “Wuxie!”
When Gongsun Wuxie heard someone calling her, she didn’t turn her head as she asked angrily, “What are you shouting for? I’m not in a good mood right now.”
However, a second later, her ears twitched slightly and she turned her head around suddenly. When she saw Su Yu, she rolled her gem-like blue eyes and a smile blossomed on her previously dejected face.
She then pounced at him like a bird and hugged his arm, while she said amid a fit of giggles, “Brother Yuxian, you finally came back! Did you miss me?”
The corners of Su Yu’s mouth couldn’t help but twitch when he witnessed her smiling face. He wondered… What kind of devious scheme is this lassie concocting now?
“Brother Yuxian, I don’t have any merit points, so can you lend me some? Please!” Gongsun Wuxie pulled Su Yu’s arm as she asked pitifully.
Borrowing merit points now? Su Yu really felt like this little demoness was up to no good now!
“Why don’t you look for Bai Shanliang and the others, then ask them instead?” Su Yu asked.
Gongsun Wuxie pouted as she leaned in and said intimately, “It’s because it’s you, and I trust you the most!”
Su Yu smiled, then asked, “How much do you want to borrow?”
“Umm… How about 100,000?” Gongsun Wuxie wasn’t reserved at all, and she immediately stated a big number.
Su Yu revealed a faint smile as he said, “I can give it to you, but you must first set a Heart Oath Scroll. Moreover, you must pay it back to me in full within a month, along with ten percent interest. This deal is quite fair, as if you took a loan from the loan providers in the black market, you would end up paying, at the very least, twenty percent interest.”
Upon hearing this, Gongsun Wuxie’s small face stiffened. “Brother Yuxian, don’t you see how close we are? Do you still need a Heart Oath Scroll from me? Don’t you trust me?”
Su Yu replied, without giving it a thought. “I don’t trust you at all, obviously. After all, the very first time that we met, you almost caused me to end up beaten to death by Bing Wuxin! So, why would I trust you? So, will you set a Heart Oath Scroll or not?”
Gongsun Wuxie pouted and put her hands on her waist. She then puffed out her cheeks and glared at him ferociously as she said, “B*stard! Mark my words… It won’t end up like this!”
After she spoke, she quickly stormed out. Su Yu just smiled in response. It seemed like the little demoness was being hostile to him for some unknown reasons. He really didn’t know when or how he had offended her.
Is it because I extinguished the phantom image that she left in the Carp Leaping Over Dragon Gate? And… Why is she so obsessed with the Carp Leaping Over Dragon Gate? Su Yu gradually got lost in his thoughts as he watched her leave.
After half a day had passed, he returned to the Demon Mountain. All four demons had left their residences, so there wasn’t anyone in the middle of the mountain.
So, only Su Yu’s central residence had someone in it. At that moment, Zi Xuan was sitting in the courtyard, and when she detected Su Yu’s aura, she looked at him with a reproachful look and asked, “Why didn’t you come back sooner?”
