“Although conflicts will still occur between the All Creation Old Monster, who can recommend people, it’s better than the chaos which would otherwise unfold,” Gongsun Wuxie said.
As a matter of fact, the more outstanding a genius was, the easier it would be for him to get a powerful All Creation Old Monster’s protection, and it would also let him enter the Glittering Jewel Wonderland safely. This was protection dedicated to only outstanding geniuses.
Su Yu said, “It means then, that it’s Palace Mistress Mo who will lead us there, and recommend us.” There was no All Creation Old Monster in Jiuzhou Continent who dared to provoke Palace Mistress Mo.
“Is it only All Creation Realm Old Monsters who are allowed to recommend people? What if Mortal Fairies like the Prefecture’s King, and the Severed Fairy Cliff’s Master went there personally?” Su Yu asked.
Gongsun Wuxie said, “It won’t happen. The Glittering Jewel Wonderland possesses a special suppression power, which will prevent all Mortal Fairies from getting into the million-mile-radius around it. If they approach it, they would be expelled. There’s no exception to this rule.”
“Even though the Glittering Jewel Mortal Fairy died many years ago, she’s still Jiuzhou Continent’s oldest Mortal Fairy, and lived for several tens of thousands of years. Even though she’s already dead, the power left by her is still not something the likes of the Nine Prefectures’ Kings can resist.”
Su Yu hadn’t heard many rumors about the Glittering Jewel Mortal Fairy, but that wouldn’t prevent respect welling up in his heart for this old Mortal Fairy. The reason why he respected her was that she had protected Jiuzhou Continent for several tens of thousands of years, and even after she died, she still hadn’t forgotten Jiuzhou’s human clan.
“In two months and three days, countless experts will appear, and many outstanding heroes will emerge in large numbers.” Su Yu’s eyes flickered. He only knew two apex geniuses: the Eighteen Blessed and Heavenly Lands’ number one genius, Gu Taixu, and the Heavenly Knife Region’s number one genius, Bi Lingtian. Jiuzhou had around forty-five regions, and should have forty-five apex geniuses, at the very least. Every one of them should be a powerful person, and almost invincible when facing someone of the same realm. Competing against them would surely be difficult.
If he didn’t prepare well in the next two months, even if he ended up getting into the Glittering Jewel Wonderland, he wouldn’t manage to contend with them, and it would be difficult for him to help Gongsun Wuxie get the Glittering Jewel Fairy Cane.
Moreover, Yun Yazi still hoped for Su Yu to take the object that had been left behind by the Glittering Jewel Mortal Fairy. If he didn’t possess absolute power, it would be difficult for him to manage it. He must quickly increase his cultivation level!
“I plan to go into secluded cultivation for the next two months,” Gongsun Wuxie said with her eyes shining like a pair of bright candles.
She suddenly said, “Well, by the way, my aunt said that she had already prepared the Vital Energy of five hundred Level Five Divine Masters, and she’s now transporting it over. She will surely manage to deliver it to you in the next two months.”
Su Yu’s eyes lit up. Would he finally get it? He had a big chunk of the Glittering Jewel Mortal Fairy’s divine crystal, which contained a part of her memory, and he needed a large amount of Vital Energy to open it. Five hundred Level Five Divine Masters’ Vital Energy should be enough to achieve it, and if he could manage to get any benefits from the divine crystal, it would be the best possible outcome.
“Fine. I will also go into secluded cultivation,” Su Yu said, even though he still didn’t know where he would carry this out. The illusory fighting room was already packed with people. Moreover, he would need to stop his cultivation after a short while each time to pay merit points, and he couldn’t cultivate peacefully for a long time.
It was at this moment that a cry echoed as Bing Wuxin woke up. She looked at the two people who were talking, and asked, “Where is Jinmu?”
Gongsun Wuxie had a guilty conscience and chuckled to hide it. “Well, he has already been killed by brother Yuxian. He took revenge for you.”
Bing Wuxin stroked the back of her head, and asked once again, “Who sneak-attacked me?”
“It was Deputy Region Master Xiao. That guy is really treacherous and sinister.” Gongsun Wuxie ran over to Bing Wuxin, and started massaging her shoulders, while she said, “He took advantage of the fact that we were distracted to mount a sneak-attack on both of us. However, it was fortunate that I managed to notice it early, and blocked most of his attack’s might.”
Bing Wuxin was still slightly muddle-headed. “Wasn’t he beaten by us until he had only his Soul Body left? How did he use such an attack?”
“Well… He… he took medicine. That’s right; he must have taken medicine,” Gongsun Wuxie said firmly.
Bing Wuxin mulled it over for a moment, but didn’t worry about it too much. She was just about to stand, but noticed the pendant hung around Gongsun Wuxie’s neck out of the corner of her eye. “A high-grade fire crystal? When did you get it?”
“Brother Yuxian has gifted it to me.” Su Yu did not know what Gongsun Wuxie’s motives were in telling her this. She had stated its origin deliberately. Her eyes were shining brightly, and it seemed like she was showing it off. It also seemed as though she was trying to provoke Bing Wuxin.
Bing Wuxin looked at Su Yu and said, “Do you know how precious high-grade crystals are? Even I don’t have more than several pieces.”
Su Yu replied, “I know, but so what?”
Bing Wuxin felt aggrieved for some unknown reason, and she felt quite frustrated. Why had he given it to Gongsun Wuxie, and not to her? Su Yu had given her three million merit points, and he was obviously in love with her, so why was he now trying to win another woman’s heart? Did this mean that he still loved Gongsun Wuxie?
The more she thought about this matter, the more difficult it was for her to keep her cool. As she looked at the high-grade crystal hanging around Gongsun Wuxie’s neck, she felt like her own treasure had just been stolen from her. However, she had gotten along well with Gongsun Wuxie for many years, and she quickly repressed the anger which had welled up in her heart.
Bing Wuxin stood up, and calmly pushed away Gongsun Wuxie’s hand which was supporting her. “I will go back to treat my injuries, and I will also go into secluded cultivation,” she said coldly. “Let’s meet again in two months.” She quickly left.
Gongsun Wuxie stared at Bing Wuxin’s retreating figure, while wearing a faint smile “Brother Su Yu, congratulations! It seems to me like sister Wuxin will fall in love with you.”
Su Yu shook his head, and said, “She just cares about the Sword Dao, and has a firm martial heart. I think that it’s difficult for such a woman to fall in love.”
“Hehe, Brother Su Yu, you don’t understand women.” Gongsun Wuxie spoke like an adult. “Women are strange creatures, and the more outstanding a person, and the more a man would pursue her of his own accord, the more difficult it would be to get her interested in him. That’s especially the case for someone like Bing Wuxin. She cares about the Sword Dao, and she’s a proud and aloof woman. She won’t fall in love easily, and it’s possible she’ll never care about anyone.”
“However, if she noticed that such a man was about to leave her, and throw himself into the embrace of another outstanding woman, she will start to care about him, and notice how outstanding he is, before unknowingly ending up falling in love with him. Brother Su Yu, I was trying to help you a moment ago. If I just let it continue like this, she won’t fall in love with you, even after you get married.”
Such an argument seemed reasonable, but since it was stated by Gongsun Wuxie, it seemed strange and odd. She was also in love with Su Yu, yet she wasn’t trying to drive Bing Wuxin away. Instead, she wanted to help them get together. What were her motives behind such actions?
“Fine. I will go into secluded cultivation, and get ready for the Glittering Jewel Wonderland’s exploration. I must learn how to use the objects I have just obtained.” Gongsun Wuxie knew what Su Yu would ask, hence why she tried to evade it deliberately. She waved her hand at him leisurely, and went back to her house where she quickly started secluded cultivation.
Su Yu was dumbfounded. It seemed like he must look for a good time to tell them this affair’s whole story.
Just as he was starting to consider where he should carry out his secluded cultivation, two sharp-looking guards rushed into the Demon Mountain, and held Su Yu. “Palace Mistress Mo has given the order. Take a trip there with us.”
Mo Tianxuan? Su Yu was irritated. Had this woman found some clues to lead her to suspect him once again? It seemed like he must find a way of sorting this out once and for all, and completely dispel her doubts and suspicions, or else, she would sooner or later bring trouble to him.
Moreover, the true trouble would be in the future. If he didn’t have Yun Yazi’s protection, he wouldn’t manage to hide anything from her if she used Soul Search on him once again.
