Chapter 375: Self-Invitation
Translator: Sparrow Translations Editor: Sparrow Translations
Lin Feng looked at Jun Zining calmly, “Are you from the Jun Family in the Ancient Yuantian World?”
Jun Zining nodded her head and looked at Lin Feng cautiously. After seeing that Lin Feng was not angry and was friendly, she heaved a sigh of relief.
“My name is Jun Zining. I am from the Jun Family.” Jun Zining answered truthfully. “But I can also really be considered half a Purple Clouds Sect disciple. I am different from the rest in my family. I once trained at the Purple Clouds Sect for a year.”
Lin Feng looked at her and asked slowly, “From what I know, the Yang Family and the Luo Family are arch-enemies. Although they are not friendly with the Jun Family, they do not bother you normally. But why were they giving you problems just now?”
Jun Zining replied hurriedly, “And I had to ask you for help.”
“I came with a companion to the Divine Lands for leisure purposes. On the way, we met with an attack from the Yang Family cultivators and we got lost from each other. She is now seriously injured now and her life is in danger. Please take mercy on her and save her.”
Lin Feng asked, “She is from the Luo Family?”
Jun Zining nodded her head repeatedly, “Yes, her name is Luo Qingwu. I have known her since I was young. Oh, talking about that, she followed me for a stroll this time but did not want to be attacked by the Yang Family.”
Lin Feng nodded his head. If she did not follow Jun Zining to the Divine Lands, Luo Qingwu would not have met with such a difficulty. And if Luo Qingwu did not draw the attention of the Yang Family, Jun Zining would not have been attacked too. It was unclear who had burdened who.
From Jun Zining’s description, Lin Feng knew that although the Luo Family had the protection of a Nascent Soul Stage elder, he was unable to resist the attack of two Nascent Soul Stage elders from the Yang Family. Because of his carelessness, Yang Xu could hurt Luo Qingwu.
After the both of them had lost contact, Jun Zining relied on the Great Teleportation Talisman to escape. But she was eventually hunted down by the Yang Family, as she had set a rendezvous point with Luo Qingwu before they lost contact with each other.
Lin Feng raised his brows and thought, “From what she says about Luo Qingwu being close to her since young, I can tell that she treats her as her younger sister. Luo Qingwu must be younger than her.”
“Why is the Yang Family so concerned about such a small girl? Furthermore, for a small girl like her, why is she fine after fighting Yang Xu? With his prowess, he could have easily crushed her. There are a lot of suspicious points here.”
Lin Feng looked at Jun Zining and asked, “For Luo Qingwu, the Yang Family activated two Nascent Soul Stage elders to kill her?”
Jun Zining shook her head, “Qingwu is only part of the reason. The other part of the reason was because they wanted to kill the Sixth Grandmaster of the Luo Family, who was protecting us.”
“This is more credible.” Lin Feng nodded his head slightly. From what he learnt from Jieyu, the 7 families in the Ancient Yuantian World were highly skilled. All of them had a Nascent Soul Stage Grandmaster to hold the fort.
But for a Middle World such as the Ancient Yuantian World, there was a big problem. There were no Void Lightning Tribulations. As a result, when the Aurous Core Stage cultivators were about to form the Nascent Soul, they would meet with an obstacle. They had no choice but to travel across the time tunnel into the Divine Lands to overcome the Lightning Tribulations.
This was also a main method used by the great powers in the Divine Lands to restrict the Ancient Yuantian World.
The direct result was that the number of Nascent Soul Stage cultivators in the Ancient Yuantian World was very little. Regardless of whatever aristocratic family, losing a Nascent Soul Stage Grandmaster was a very disastrous thing.
For the Yang Family, it was the perfect opportunity to kill Luo Dan, the Nascent Soul Stage Grandmaster that was escorting Luo Qingwu and Jun Zining.
However, Luo Qingwu was also a main target.
“It’s also a widely known matter in the Ancient Yuantain World, it should be fine to say it out, shouldn’t it?” Jun Zining hesitated for a moment and said, “They wanted to kill the Sixth Grandmaster of the Luo Family and use the chance to get rid of Qingwu. She has an innate talent. Since she was born, her body contained a piece of the Heavenly Yin Spiritual Pearl.”
Lin Feng was really curious now, “Oh? The Heavenly Yin Spiritual Pearl?”
After checking with the system, Lin Feng found out that the Heavenly Yin Spiritual Pearl was like Xiao Budian’s Supreme Spiritual Altar. It was birthed and bred in the Heavens and was a spiritual item that was innate within a human’s body.
This pearl naturally gathered the purest Xuanyin air around its owner’s surroundings to nourish the owner. This enabled the owner to cultivate Yin type mantras very easily and with higher efficiency than a normal person. It was only second to a pure Yin body and was the second most powerful substance to cultivate Yin type mantras.
Although a person who possessed the Heavenly Yin Spiritual Pearl was not innately in the intermediate stage of the Foundation Establishment Stage like Xiao Budian’s Supreme Spiritual Altar, he could use the pearl as its core to form the spiritual altar in the future when he was trying to create an aura sea. A first-grade spiritual altar would be formed with hundred percent certainty.
From previous accounts of the accumulation of Xuanyin air by the pearl and the owner’s Determination and Intelligence, there was a possibility to even reach a Supreme Spiritual Altar.
With such an Innate Ability, it was unbelievable.
A hundred percent first-grade spiritual altar signified a hundred percent first-grade crucible. In the future, with the support of the elders and with nothing going wrong, it was almost certain to form a Purple Pill.
Forming a Purple Pill from the Aurous Core was succeeded by the Tribulations of the Yin Fire and the Yin Wind and then the Void Lightning Tribulations. If one’s Determination and Intelligence could follow with the cultivation and there was support from the elders, Luo Qingwu would reach the Nascent Soul Stage.
The stronger the foundation, the smoother the path in the future. With Luo Qingwu’s talent, she would be well taken care by the Luo Family. Every step she took would be stable. After she forms the Nascent Soul, she would still have unlimited potential to be unearthed.
Although she was a girl, she would become the future pillar of the Luo Family if she did not die early.
And if the Yang Family had such an opportunity to kill her, they would not let it go.
Lin Feng nodded his head slightly and thought of something suddenly. He asked Jun Zining unintentionally, “To survive under the hands of a Nascent Soul Stage cultivator, what is the cultivation of Luo Qingwu now?”
Jun Zining was worried and only hoped that Lin Feng would save her now. Whatever Lin Feng asked her, she replied immediately, “She is only 9 years old now and she is in the 8th level in the Qi Cultivation Stage.”
Lin Feng followed with, “How long has she cultivated for? What about you?”
Jun Zining gave Lin Feng a weird look, but still answered honestly, “She has cultivated for 2 years. I started a little late. I am only in my 3rd year.”
Lin Feng calculated quickly. From this, he could tell that Luo Qingwu’s other talents were not lacking compared to her Innate Talent.
It was obvious from a parallel comparison. Xiao Yan started when he was 8. At 12, he finished the Qi Cultivation Stage, causing a huge uproar, even catching the attention of the Great Void Sect.
Jun Zining was in the 11th level of the Qi Cultivation Stage. To reach there in 3 years meant that she was not that far from Xiao Yan.
She was not as talented as him, but the material treatments she had received and the quality of her cultivation was much better than Xiao Yan. Hence, their speed was nearly the same.
When the material conditions were different, there was bound to be a huge influence. Xiao Zhener had already reached the Foundation Establishment Stage at this age.
Whereas for Luo Qingwu, to reach the 8th level of the Qi Cultivation Stage in 2 years, it meant that she was faster than Jun Zining and Xiao Yan by a little.
From Jun Zining’s tone, Lin Feng could tell that she was very pampered in the Jun Family. She was even sent to the Purple Clouds Sect for a year. It meant that the resources she possessed was roughly the same as Luo Qingwu.
From this perspective, Luo Qingwu’s talent was above Jun Zining.
The total score of Jun Zining’s four statistics were 28. Luo Qingwu’s statistics were bound to be even higher.
“Will it reach 30?” Lin Feng thought in his head. If it reaches 30, she fulfils the criteria to be his Immediate Disciple.
It was rare to reach 30 and one could be considered a freak to be that standard. Even in the Great Void Sect, where the talents gathered, it was a rare sight.
In a normal sect or family, for someone to reach that standard, he would be touted as their future pillar. They could even enable them to achieve significant progress and find their footing in a greater stage.
At this point, Lin Feng decided. He could not let this person go easily. Furthermore, she was in trouble. There was no better opportunity.
But she was from the Luo Family, a distinguished family in the field of cultivation. She was pampered since young, hence she would be extremely attached to her family. Even if he accepted her as a disciple, it would be difficult to keep her here.
If someone exerted his influence on her through the Luo Family, it would be disadvantageous to the Celestial Sect of Wonders. Lin Feng would be shooting his own foot then.
Lin Feng would not ask her to betray her family to be with the Celestial Sect of Wonders. But he would at least want her to be neutral in her support towards both sides.
“There are still many things to be planned.” Lin Feng thought. “After meeting her, let me assess the situation before making a decision.”
Jun Zining looked at Lin Feng uncomfortably, as if she was waiting on her fate. She did not dare to rush or plead anymore, as she did not want him to feel annoyed.
“If it was not possible, try contacting the elders of the Purple Clouds Sect. But I am afraid this will delay the time.”
Jun Zining was thinking of what to do until she saw Lin Feng looking over.
Lin Feng said, “Forget it, since we are destined to meet, let me give you a hand.”
Jun Zining was elated and wanted to tell Lin Feng about the destination hurriedly. Lin Feng laughed while shaking his head, “There is no need to.”
He expanded his supernatural awareness to the extremes and crossed time and space to examine the mountains within Mount Kunlun.
After doing a vast search across the area, he did not find anything. He then controlled Mount Yujing to shift time and space again and did a blanket search. After searching a few areas, he made a discovery.
It was a gravely injured Nascent Soul Stage cultivator who was moving with a lady in red with difficulty. The lady was also gravely injured and her life was on the line.
Lin Feng was a little surprised that Liang Gan and Chu Yang was also in the area. Compared to when he was at Mount Yujing, Liang Gan’s entourage was now much larger than before.
They were resting at the moment and Chu Yang drifted from the big group for some reason. He was finding something worriedly.
