Cultivate, Sign In, And Be Rewarded Handsomely Novel - Chapter 427
Translator: Henyee Translations Editor: Henyee Translations
The Changping Mountain Range was vast and three hundred miles deep from north to south. The spiritual energy was dense and the soil was fertile. There were even several large spirit mines below.
The fertile land of this resource did not belong to any large family. Instead, it was occupied by a group of itinerant cultivators.
Wang Lan seemed to be very familiar with this place. He did not encounter any obstacles along the way with Li Yuanqing.
They slowly arrived at a very ordinary mountain in the depths of the mountain range.
If Li Yuanqing was to go in and look for it, he would probably miss such an ordinary mountain because he could not see anything special about it.
“Senior, could it be here?”
Li Yuanqing and Wang Lan stood at the foot of the mountain. Wang Lan was looking up at the mountain peak with emotion.
“This mountain looks extremely ordinary. The density of spiritual energy is not top-notch. It can even be said to be a little sparse. Why did that senior choose this place?”
When Wang Lan heard Li Yuanqing’s confusion, he revealed a rare smile. “He’s like this. He abandoned all the distracting thoughts in this world to be so open-minded.”
Wang Lan was very emotional, but Li Yuanqing could not understand.
What cultivators pursued was nothing more than powerful strength. It was said that cultivating the heart was a very profound knowledge. However, no matter what, the acquisition of spiritual energy from the body was the most important.
“Let’s go up. He’s already waiting.”
As Wang Lan spoke, he took the lead and stepped onto the mountain.
Li Yuanqing had just taken a step when a familiar voice suddenly appeared in his mind.
[Congratulations for signing in successfully to the Changping Mountain Range and obtaining a reward!]
[Reward One: Spiritual Energy Infusion!]
[Reward Two: Immortal World Weapon Refinement Manual!]
Li Yuanqing looked up at Wang Lan, who had already walked hundreds of feet forward. This was not a good time to inject spiritual energy.
Although Li Yuanqing urgently needed to obtain a large amount of energy, this opportunity was indeed too rash.
“Choose Reward Two!”
[Congratulations on obtaining it. Immortal World Weapon Refinement Manual has been released.]
Li Yuanqing’s eyes flashed, and a very thick book appeared in front of him. He casually opened a chapter and looked in the middle. On it was a spear burning with flames. He casually waved his hand and put the thick book away. Wang Lan, who was in front, happened to turn around and look at him.
“What’s wrong? Aren’t you coming over?”
“Senior, don’t worry about me. I’ll follow.”
“Follow closely. The array formations inside are complicated. It’s not as simple as you think.”
“Thank you for your advice, Senior. I’ll be right there.”
Li Yuanqing put away the book and did not delay. He rushed towards Wang Lan.
After the two of them went up the mountain, they kept walking on some very strange paths. They stopped walking on the paths at the side and kept burrowing into the deep bushes.
The strange thing was that although the bushes looked very lush outside, they seemed to have blocked the road.
However, once he walked in, he felt that the space to his left and right seemed to have become much wider, as if the plants had split up on their own.
Li Yuanqing looked at the path under his feet as he walked. He was very interested in this array formation.
He had discovered some traces of the array formation the moment he entered. However, the designer of this array formation was very skilled. The overall design was very obscure and did not stand out.
Although Li Yuanqing’s attainments in array formations could be unparalleled in the lower realm, it was not enough in the Immortal World. He could only be considered an entry-level array master.
He tried his best to look, but the more he looked, the more difficult it became. His footsteps slowed down greatly. In the end, he simply stopped and did not waste his energy.
The two of them walked up the mountain along the nonexistent path. Li Yuanqing did not know how long they had been walking. He felt that they had been inside for a long time, and the fog outside gradually became thicker.
Only then did Li Yuanqing remember that when they walked in just now, the mountain looked clear and bright. The sunlight shone on this place and illuminated the plants on it.
However, after walking up step by step, the appearance completely changed. This mountain was no longer the one he had seen just now.
The peak of the mountain looked so high from the bottom of the mountain just now. It still looked so high when he was halfway up the mountain. It was as if its position had been stuck above their heads and had never moved.
Li Yuanqing was even more curious about the designer of this array formation. He wondered what kind of array formation master could design such a smooth and silent array formation.
Suddenly, a gust of wind blew in front of them and hit the two of them and the plant beside them.
The flowers, plants, and branches twisted crazily, swinging long vines at the two of them.
Wang Lan did not dodge. He did not even have a spiritual energy shield on his body. He allowed the branches to slap his body with a crisp sound.
Li Yuanqing was better off standing behind Wang Lan. However, the senior in front had not summoned his shield. He was embarrassed to do so, so he could only endure it carefully.
A moment later, the wind suddenly increased in intensity and attacked the two of them with those branches.
Wang Lan looked up in the direction of the wind and suddenly shouted, “Huo Feng, it’s been so many years. Are you still unwilling to see me?”
The wind in front of him gradually calmed.
Li Yuanqing curiously stuck out half of his head and looked ahead. It turned out that the fellow inside was called Huo Feng. It seemed like the two of them still had some grudges, but it was not too serious. Otherwise, how could he invite him out?
A seal suddenly turned around and spun in front of the two of them, blowing gently across their faces.
Li Yuanqing felt a very hot breath caress his face. Then, a voice sounded in his ear, as if it was brought by the wind.
“Leave. You’re not welcome here.”
That person’s voice was very cold, directly rejecting the two of them.
Not only did Wang Lan not retreat, but he also took a step forward. A violent wind formed under his feet, as if it wanted to blow him away. He puffed out his chest fearlessly and looked straight at the deepest part of the fog.
“Huo Feng! You’ve always thought of yourself as righteous. Now that a large number of itinerant cultivators are controlled by the evil sects and are schemed against to be refined into corpse puppets, how can you watch from the sidelines and say such decisive words?”
The wind under Wang Lan’s feet weakened a lot, but the words of the person in front were still cold.
“Wang Lan, don’t give me that. I know very well what kind of person you are. If those itinerant cultivators had such threats, why would you be so concerned?”
“Huo Feng, I was wrong back then, but it’s been more than a thousand years. Can’t you let those things go?”
“Don’t tell me this. Please leave. Whatever you’re saying has nothing to do with me.”
Wang Lan seemed to have expected him to say this. He pushed Li Yuanqing to the front and pointed at him. “I know you don’t believe me, but this young man discovered these things. He has already been targeted by the Divine Fire Sect. If no one protects him, he will definitely die. I can leave, but I want to leave him here. It’s up to you whether you want to help him or not.”
Li Yuanqing looked at Wang Lan in confusion. This was not the plot that they had discussed in advance. He had not mentioned it at all just now.
Why did he sell him out after coming here? Aren’t they a team? Why did he want to leave him here?
Li Yuanqing did not even know what kind of person that person was.
“Don’t give me that. No matter what you do, your matters have nothing to do with me.”
However, Wang Lan acted as if he did not hear him and pressed Li Yuanqing down. He turned around and retreated, disappearing in a short while.
After he left, he only left a sentence in Li Yuanqing’s ear. “This Senior Huo Feng is soft-hearted. You just have to report the truth. He will uphold justice for you.”
Li Yuanqing really did not expect such a plot.
Wang Lan had changed quickly. Initially, he said that he was here to meet an old friend. He did not expect them to meet like this.
Li Yuanqing looked at the path that had disappeared behind him and his face could not help but twitch.
At this moment, a small path suddenly appeared in the bamboo forest behind.
A voice behind him said to him, “If you want to leave, leave now. I have an old grudge with Wang Lan. I don’t want to implicate others with this. I think these things have nothing to do with you.”
However, at this point, how could Li Yuanqing leave just like that? If he left just like that, he would still be on the list of the Divine Fire Sect.
Moreover, those people from the Divine Fire Sect were still secretly doing those things.
Li Yuanqing slowly turned around and looked into the depths of the fog. He slowly sat down cross-legged.
“Senior, I really have something to ask of you today. I hope you can help me.”
“If anything happens to you, you can look for the elders of your sect. Why did you come to my deep forest to ask for help?”
Li Yuanqing explained, “I’m a lowly person in the sect, so I might not be able to see the seniors in the sect. Moreover, this matter is so urgent. If Senior can save me, why do you have to stand by and do nothing?”
“Why did you come to me when you can’t see the elders of the sect?”
“The Divine Fire Sect secretly tricked people into going there and killed them in front of everyone. They also used the evil corpse refinement technique to make them into puppets. If I don’t find someone to say this, I’m afraid my conscience will be uneasy.”
A handful of dust flew out of the thick fog and swept towards Li Yuanqing’s face.
This time, Li Yuanqing felt dizzy. When he woke up, he realized that he was no longer where he was just now.
The bamboo forest was originally behind him, but now, it was in front of him.
“Go back with Wang Lan. I don’t have anything to do with the mortal world anymore.”
“Senior, your Dharma treasure is really refined meticulously.”
Li Yuanqing suddenly turned his attention to the horsetail whisk.
Huo Feng paused for a moment and chuckled. “Young friend, you’re quite interested in weapon refinement?”
Li Yuanqing replied humbly, “Although I’m not proficient in it, I know a thing or two. I think that although Senior had spent a large amount of materials for your Dharma treasure and your refinement methods are extremely brilliant, it’s still a step away and lacks some spirituality.”
This time, Huo Feng was puzzled. He had only thrown out one move just now. He did not expect this little fellow to be able to see so much.
“You said that my whisk lacks spirituality. Isn’t that very strange? Do you know my identity?”
“If I’m not wrong, you have a deep relationship with the Fire Refinement Pavilion, right?”
“What a joke. There are many people in the entire Immortal World who have a deep relationship with the Fire Refinement Pavilion. Who am I to say that?”
“I dare to guess that Senior is an elder of the Fire Refinement Pavilion.”
Huo Feng fell silent again. After a long time, he snorted coldly and said unhappily, “This old fellow has already said everything. He asked you to come and make fun of me. Forget it, forget it. Go back. I won’t interfere in this matter.”
Huo Feng thought that Li Yuanqing and Wang Lan had already colluded with each other. He blew another handful of dust past Li Yuanqing and retreated. It was unknown how far away he was, but he was about to reach the foot of the mountain.
“Senior, don’t you want to know how to complete this last step?”
The horsetail whisk suddenly stopped in front of Li Yuanqing. Its white and soft animal fur was distinct and very transparent.
The whisk slowly lowered, revealing an old man with white hair and a youthful face.
This old man had a head of white hair that scattered behind him. He was wearing a pure white Daoist robe with the edge of an alchemy furnace drawn on it.
However, the difference between the alchemy furnace of the Fire Refinement Pavilion and the Alchemy Pavilion was that the opening above it was wider. The empty space inside was like a cylinder, and the hole above the alchemy furnace of the Alchemy Pavilion was even smaller. It wanted to completely gather the medicinal effect in the furnace.
The old man slowly put down the horsetail whisk and sized Li Yuanqing up from left to right. His tall nose heaved a sigh of relief. Li Yuanqing could even see the two wisps of white aura spreading in the air.
“You’re speaking rudely at such a young age. Do you know what happens to people who spout nonsense in front of me?”
Li Yuanqing hurriedly bowed to the old man and explained, “Senior, I’m not lying to you. I naturally have my reasons.”
“What good logic. I don’t believe that you can see the crux of my horsetail whisk in just two glances.”
The old man seemed to be very confident. He casually placed the floating dust on his arm and looked at Li Yuanqing coldly.
“What if I’m lucky enough to see through it?”
“Then I’ll do as you say!”
