Ai Jingting’s eyes lit up when she saw Lin Shen.
“Senior Brother Lin, 1 was wondering why the voice outside was so familiar when I heard it in the pill room. I thought it was you. I was right!”
Lin Shen smiled when he heard this. “1 didn’t disturb your pill refinement, did I?”
“Of course not.” Ai Jingting smiled. “Senior Brother Lin, you’re here to get the pills, right? I’ve already prepared them. The pills are in the pill room. Please come with me.”
Lin Shen smiled and walked into the courtyard. He walked side by side with Ai Jingting toward the pill room and casually asked,
“Speaking of which, has anything happened recently? On the way here, I felt that there was something wrong with the way those disciples looked at me.”
Ai Jingting glanced at him and smiled. “Senior Brother Lin must have been cultivating in seclusion recently.”
Seeing Lin Shen nod, she continued, “No wonder. You still don’t know, right? When the news of you severely injuring the Blood Sea Sect cultivator master spread to the sect, it caused quite a stir. Many Elders expressed their intention to take you in as their disciple, including a few Mystic Light Stage elders!”
After a cultivator forged the spirit meridians and broke through the cage of the mortal world, they would become a Spirit Nurturing Stage cultivator master.
Above the Spirit Nurturing Stage was the Mystic Light Stage.
A Mystic Light Stage cultivator master was one of the top few capable members in the Nine Suns Sect!
All of them were archimandrites or pavilion masters, and their status was second only to the Sect Master.
To any academy disciple, such a person was a high and mighty figure who was out of their reach!
To be accepted as a disciple by a Mystic Light Stage cultivator master would be equivalent to reaching the heavens in a single step. One would probably wake up laughing in their dreams!
Toward the end, Ai Jingting’s tone was filled with emotion.
Although her Master held a high position in the sect, she was still inferior to Mystic Light realm cultivator masters.
Those were the core members of the sect!
Such a top-notch cultivator master might not even take in a disciple once in ten to twenty years. It was rare for them to show the intention to take in a disciple this time around!
However, on second thought, with Lin Shen’s talent and strength, it didn’t seem strange that those Mystic Light Stage cultivator masters showed their interest.
After all, no one in the thousands of years since Nine Suns Sect was established had been able to severely injure a cultivator master when they were at the Bright Aperture Stage!
No wonder even Mystic Light Stage cultivator masters were tempted by such a peerless genius!
After hearing Ai Jingting’s explanation, Lin Shen finally understood.
That was why those people’s attitudes toward him changed so abruptly. It turned out that they were affected by this news.
“Taking in a disciple…”
Lin Shen’s eyes flickered.
There were many obstacles in the path of cultivation. If one had someone to guide them, they would be able to avoid many detours.
Although he had a clone and his cultivation speed far exceeded that of ordinary people, it seemed good if someone could lead the way.
Moreover, with a master, it would be much easier to obtain cultivation techniques and resources.
After his thoughts wandered for a moment, Lin Shen shook his head and threw this matter to the back of his mind.
The most important thing now was to forge the spirit meridians and advance to a cultivator master.
As for getting a Master, it wasn’t up to him. He could think about it later.
After changing the topic, Lin Shen asked about the spirit cave.
“I don’t know much about the spirit cave. I only heard that the sect has sent a large number of people into the spirit cave and is competing with the Blood Sea Sect for ownership. It has already become a battlefield, and 1 don’t know when it will end.” Ai Jingting shook her head slightly.
Lin Shen nodded and was deep in thought.
This kind of battle involving two sects was far more serious than when they attacked the Tiger Tribe.
Facing the weak Tiger Tribe, the sect would even let the academy’s disciples participate in the battle as a form of training.
However, when their opponent became a colossus like the Blood Sea Sect, they couldn’t do that anymore.
In the war between the two sects, the disciples of the academy, especially the disciples of the lower house, would only be cannon fodder if they participated.
Unless the sect leaders had lost their minds, they wouldn’t send the disciples of the academy who had yet to mature to their deaths.
Furthermore, there were many Enlightening Stage demons in the spirit cave. Cultivators who weren’t at the Bright Aperture Stage couldn’t move inside, and most of the academy disciples didn’t have that cultivation level.
Therefore, the battle in the spirit cave shouldn’t have much to do with Lin Shen for the time being.
Before long, the two of them had already arrived at the pill room.
Ai Jingting took out a token and deactivated the restriction. She opened a drawer from the cabinet that occupied an entire wall. It was filled with more than ten bottles of pills.
“Senior Brother Lin, there are 15 bottles of Cast Spirit Pills here and a total of 180 pills.”
“Thank you, Junior Sister Ai!”
Lin Shen waved his hand and put all the pills into his storage ring.
180 Cast Spirit Pills didn’t seem like much, but that was relative to his gains in the spirit cave.
Such an experience could only be chanced upon by luck.
Ordinary cultivators at the ninth level of the Bright Aperture Stage would be considered lucky if they could refine a bottle of Cast Spirit Pills with the spirit dust they collected after a trip to the spirit cave.
180 Cast Spirit Pills was already an extremely huge number!
Otherwise, so many cultivators wouldn’t have been stuck at the ninth level of the Bright Aperture Stage for so many years while forging spirit meridians.
Poor aptitude was one thing, but Cast Spirit Pills were also one of the main reasons.
Ai Jingting’s eyes lit up as she watched Lin Shen put away the Cast Spirit Pills.
The news of Lin Shen starting to condense a spirit meridian had long spread throughout the entire Nine Yang Academy, and even the entire sect.
Now, many people were guessing what grade of spirit meridian Lin Shen could forge.
Most people thought that Lin Shen could at least forge a third-grade spirit meridian.
Don’t underestimate a third-grade spirit meridian.
Those who could attain a third-grade spirit meridian could almost all advance to the Mystic Light Stage in the future as long as nothing unexpected happened.
Almost all the Mystic Light Stage cultivator masters of the Nine Suns Sect had third-grade spirit meridians..
