Chapter 1061: Rapid Development, Meteoric Rise
Translator: Sparrow Translations Editor: Sparrow Translations
In the Wasteland Valley, Li Kuiyin laughed as she looked at Shi Tianhao, “Oh yes, Tianhao, you are already all grown up and you have achieved much in your progress. Furthermore, your foundation is also already stabilized. Do you have in mind a lady that can be a Daoist couple with you?”
Shi Tianhao chuckled as he heard her words, “No, I don’t really think it’s necessary too.
Gu Lei laughed too, “Do you really not mind, or has your age already passed before you fully matured?”
“Previously, my grandfather once mentioned that he wanted me to get a wife as soon as possible. But I wouldn’t feel good towards the family of the lady if I did that, thus I stalled till now.” Shi Tianhao replied, “At this stage, I don’t really have any intention anymore.”
He spoke in a very relaxed manner, but his gaze did not have any signs of jubilance. On the other hand, he seemed to be worried.
Gu Lei and Li Kuiyin were silent as they heard his words. As they were familiar with Shi Tianhao, they naturally knew that the whereabouts of his parents were still unknown.
And after his grandfather entered the Void Battleground again, his whereabouts also became unknown. Even the original head of the Shi Family, Shi Wu, had also entered the Void Battleground. But even there was not much news from him.
The special characteristic of the Void Battleground was that it left people very unsure of whether they were. It was especially difficult for them if they wanted to find someone.
Shi Tianhao spent most of his time in the Void Battleground all these years. He even remained there for quite some time before, only returning just before Lin Feng came back from the Spirit Sea. As they met, they entered the Starry Sea together.
Without any surprises, Shi Tianhao would enter the Void Battleground to find his parents again after he settled all his stuff on Mount Yujing.
He had been walking this long path for quite some time and he would continue doing so until he had a clear result.
At this point, void space cracked open and a human figure walked out from the crack. He was decked in purple which was covered by a long, white robe. He looked very scholarly, revealing his identity as Zhu Yi.
After Zhu Yi revealed himself, he clasped his hands towards Gu Lei and Li Kuiyin, “I was busy. When I received news, I was delayed by a little. Apologies to have made the both of you wait for me.”
Besides Shi Tianhao as their good friend, Gu Lei and Li Kuiyin also shared a rather good relationship with Zhu Yi. Furthermore, Gu Lei was much more familiar with Zhu Yi. Comparatively, Li Kuiyin was closer to Shi Tianhao.
After meeting Zhu Yi, Gu Lei had the intention of changing the topic. He laughed and said, “Come to think about it, Tianhao made his juniors rush to the front.”
As he said, he opened his palm out wide and retrieved a flashing, purplish coin, “This came from a disciple from my sect who asked me to pass it to Comrade Zhu Yi’s disciple. It has the effect of bridging communication and can be used repeatedly.”
Shi Tianhao laughed as he saw this, “Oh, it’s for Yang Tie.”
He looked at Gu Lei and Li Kuiyin, “But for something as secretive as this, shouldn’t it be passed secretly and concealed from us elders?”
Li Kuiyin laughed, “Shaolan is a very open person. Even for something like this, she doesn’t need us to view her in the light of a little girl. She is undergoing her own cultivation now and it will last for some time. She can’t leave the Purple Clouds Peak, thus she requested ask to bring it over for her.”
Gu Lei laughed, “What openness? She’s only a tomboy. I wonder what Yang Tie sees in her.”
Zhu Yi laughed slightly too and received the coin over, “Shaolan indeed has the behavior of a man.”
He thought of something and after a while, Yang Tie came to the Wasteland Valley. He greeted Zhu Yi and Shi Tianhao first, “Greetings to Master and Seventh Junior Uncle.”
After greeting his own elders, Yang Tie turned to Gu Lei and Li Kuiyin and bowed towards them, “Elder Gu, Elder Li.”
Gu Lei looked at him and smiled, “Your cultivation has improved once more. I’m afraid that even if the two of us combine together, we may not be able to win you.”
He spoke very steadily and honestly, and had no intention of making it awkward for Yang Tie. Yang Tie responded with a respectful bow and he said humbly, “Elder, your words are too kind. I still need more training though.”
Zhu Yi laughed as he passed the coin to Yang Tie. Yang Tie was stunned and Li Kuiyin chuckled, “That little brat from my sect asked us to pass this to you.”
Yang Tie remained serious as he heard her words. Very soon, he turned a little shy. After receiving the coin over, he paused for a moment before asking, “Is Senior Shaolan doing fine?”
Zhu Yi pointed at the coin in his hand and said, “You can ask her yourself. Go.”
Zhu Yi waved Yang Tie off. As Yang Tie looked at the coin, he was instantly enlightened, and he smiled, “No rush. Master, you have not seen Elder Gu and Elder Li for some time. I shall stand at one side as all of you converse. If there are any instructions, I can carry them out immediately.”
Shi Tianhao laughed, “It’s fine with Zhenting around. Go and do what you need to do.”
After seeing Zhu Yi nodding his head, Yang Tie bowed and said, “Yes, I shall take my leave.”
As they looked at Yang Tie’s back figure as he left, Gu Lei and Li Kuiyin laughed, “He is indeed quite a steady person.”
Was Yang Tie not rushed and unbothered? He was very rushed and very bothered. He just did not reveal that in front of Gu Lei and Li Kuiyin. But as he left the Wasteland Valley, they became more obvious.
But he was able to control himself previously. He took his job more seriously than his personal stuff.
“Sorry to have made ourselves a laughing stock.” Zhu Yi laughed as he said. Gu Lei and Li Kuiyin shook their heads together, “No, no. Although he’s young, he’s already very accomplished.”
Gu Lei said, “We came here because we found a new strip of Thunder Jade crystal mine in the Fangyu World. I believe that your sect needs this Thunder Jade.”
“Oh?” Zhu Yi and Shi Tianhao looked at each other before nodding their heads.
The Fangyu World was a Middle World like the Ancient Yuantian World. It was controlled by different powers, who held different parts of the world. Originally, the Samsara Sect had a share in it.
After the Anti-Celestial Sect War, the Samsara Sect divided the land and compensated the Celestial Sect of Wonders to redeem some of their members. Thus, the Celestial Sect of Wonders obtained a share of the Fangyu World.
As a show of his gratitude, Lin Feng passed control of the share that they obtained to the Purple Clouds Sect.
Gu Lei’s words referred to a new strip of crystal mine found on this plot of land.
The Thunder Jade was a rare treasure. To a cultivator cultivating thunder spells, it was very useful.
Gu Lei and Li Kuiyin naturally did not rush over just to pass something from their disciple to them. Regarding this strip of Thunder Jade crystal mine, they had to discuss with the Celestial Sect of Wonders too.
The Celestial Sect of Wonders had already transferred control of the land to the Purple Clouds Sect, thus logically, they had nothing to do with the land already. Whatever the Purple Clouds Sect wanted to do with it, they could decide for themselves.
But over these few years, the resources produced in the Fangyu World had been supplied to the Celestial Sect of Wonders in great amount all these years by the Purple Clouds Sect.
It’s not a surprise for the Purple Clouds Sect to tell the Celestial Sect of Wonders of this new Thunder Jade mine.
Of course, this was the Purple Clouds Sect expressing their goodwill too. After the discussion of the way of karma previously, it was natural for the Purple Clouds Sect to take some action.
It might not be the case that they were set on coming to Mount Kunlun to seek advice. But it was a good thing for them to further the relationship between themselves and the Celestial Sect of Wonders.
Lin Feng was clearly aware of this, but he was unbothered. This was a very common situation.
In the future days, the situation in Mount Kunlun and the Divine Lands regained normalcy and peace again.
The only thing worth mentioning was that Shi Tianhao brought Huang Zhenting and a bunch of Wasteland Valley disciples to the Barren Expanses, taking control of the valley that Huang Zhenting and Shi Yang found. This valley was going to be the new alternative residence of Shi Tianhao.
And what was beyond the expectations of everyone was that the demons kept one closed eye with regards to this matter. This was a huge difference as compared to their reaction to Mount Taihua of the Great Void Sect.
A huge discussion was going on in the Divine Lands at this point. Many believed that Shi Tianhao took control of a remote area without any significant value, thus the demons did not want to start a conflict with the Celestial Sect of Wonders out of nothing.
There were also others who reckoned that as compared to the Great Void Sect, the demons were more afraid of Lin Feng and the Celestial Sect of Wonders.
There were even those who thought that the demons were more afraid of the Great Void Sect, thus they were more concerned about their actions. On the other hand, they viewed Shi Tianhao and the Celestial Sect of Wonders as less of a threat, hence they did not bother about them.
The thing was, there were many guesses abound in the Divine Lands right now.
Because of the special environment and geography of the valley, Shi Tianhao had to hold the fort at his new alternative residence currently. As a result, he had to delay his travels to the Void Battleground to find his relatives. But this wouldn’t take too long either. With the Cang Heaven Spell Blade around with him, Shi Tianhao could leave after a short period of time.
And on Mount Yujing, Lin Feng continued to move between the Starry Sea and the Divine Lands. He cultivated spells and figured out his own mantras as well as other moves that were incomplete.
The Crucible of the Divine Lands ostracized Xiao Yan, which meant that Lin Feng had to cultivate pills on his own most of the time. Although he used up quite some time, it managed to improve Lin Feng’s standard of cultivating pills.
A huge amount of resources was converted to pills through the Crucible of the Divine Lands. Not only were they supplied to the disciples of the Celestial Sect of Wonders, they were also provided to the Purple Clouds Sect and other allies of the Celestial Sect of Wonders. This was another avenue which allowed the Celestial Sect of Wonders to unite the various powers in the Divine Lands.
Xiao Yan and the rest were also guiding their disciples as they cultivated on their own. The Celestial Sect of Wonders entered another period of rapid progress.
As time passed, after Tang Jun, Zhou Yuncong, Han Yang, Ying Luozha, Huang Zhenting and Yang Tie all formed their Nascent Souls. Yan Yunqing, Zhuge Wanqiu, Zhao Huan, Sun Xueer, Ke Jing and Yan Wuwei all reached the Advanced Aurous Core Stage too and the Nascent Soul Stage was within sight!
The second-generation disciples and third-generation disciples improved rapidly. The Nascent Soul Stage and Aurous Core Stage descendants of the Celestial Sect of Wonders were on the verge of experiencing a meteoric rise.
