Chapter 1170 Top Ten Treasure
"You know what this treasure is?" Yuan became excited after seeing her surprised reaction.
She nodded and proceeded to mumble in a dazed voice, "If I am correct, this should be the Primordial Crystal. It's an exceedingly powerful resource that was thought to be extinct in the Nine Heavens."
"There are many legends that surround this treasure. Some say it will give one immortality. Some say it will give the carrier ultimate strength. Some even say that it will directly make you a god."
"Do you know what it actually does?" Yuan asked.
She shook her head, "Unfortunately, I only recognize it due to the void-like energy within. Even then, I am not 100 percent certain that this is the Primordial Crystal."
Feng Yuxiang turned to look at Jin Xi and continued, "Perhaps she might know about it, since she should have existed when the Primordial Crystal was still available."
Jin Xi quickly nodded and said, "Of course, I have heard of the Primordial Crystal. The biggest families and sects in the Divine Heaven would often fight each other whenever one is found."
"The Primordial Crystal is mostly known for three things— improve talent, evolve bloodlines, and even change one's physique. Its effect is different for every individual, and there's really no telling what will happen to one until they absorb it. Regardless, it'll change a person's life for the better and was even deemed one of top 10 treasures in the entire Divine Realm."
"Wow, to think it was a top 10 treasure…" Feng Yuxiang mumbled in a dazed voice.
This is the first time she's held a treasure that was once considered as one of the best treasures in the entire world.
There are tens of thousands of unique treasures in the cultivation world, and to be considered in the top ten, one can only imagine its effects.
"Congratulations, Young Master. With this treasure, you'll become even more powerful!" Feng Yuxiang handed the crystal back to him with a smile on her face.
"Should I consume this now or later?" He wondered out loud.
"Just so you know, it takes a tremendous amount of time to absorb the crystal. Most people go into seclusion and don't come out for another thousand years, some even taking ten thousand years." Jin Xi warned him.
"I guess that answers my question…" Yuan stored the Primordial Crystal in his spatial ring.
"Now I only need to find three more keys…"
Once they were ready, they started moving again.
However, they came to another halt shortly after.
"Hm? Isn't this the garden from before? Why is it here?" Yuan initially thought that he'd traveled back to where he came from, but upon looking at the surroundings, that wasn't possible.
The only explanation was that the garden had teleported to this location somehow, or it was a different garden that looked exactly the same as the previous one.
Jin Xi sighed after seeing the garden, and she turned to look at Yuan with a perplexed expression.
'This must be the reason why the Master wanted me to guide him…' She sighed inwardly.
She then said, "This is the Fateful Garden. It doesn't have a set location and will teleport around without any set schedule. Nobody before you has ever managed to encounter it, and the fact that you encountered it twice could only mean one thing."
"If this is related to my fate then there must be a key in there." Yuan said as he entered the garden once again.
And sure enough, under the pavilion, there was a single black key resting on the table.
Yuan wondered if this was a trap due to how easy and free it seemed.
Seeing his hesitation, Jin Xi said, "You can relax. Encountering the Fateful Garden twice is its trial in itself."
"Oh, really?" Yuan immediately picked up the key.
"Now I just need 2 more keys."
"One." Jin Xi suddenly said.
"Huh?" Yuan looked at her with raised eyebrows.
Jin Xi raised her hand and showed him a white key resting on her palm.
"Where did you get that?" Yuan asked.
"I had it with me this entire time."
"What? And you're giving it to me just now?" Yuan was dumbfounded.𝒇𝙧𝐞ℯ𝒘e𝚋n𝚘𝙫𝐞𝑙. c𝐨m
"I had to make sure you were worthy of it."
"Thanks." Yuan went to grab the key, but Jin Xi suddenly closed her hand.
"Before I give you this key, I want you to tell me the truth," she said.
"I don't recall lying to you." Yuan raised an eyebrow.
"I am going to ask you this now— Are you related to the Master?" Jin Xi stared at him intensively with a serious face.
Yuan smiled and said, "Would you believe me if I said that I am the masked man?"
Jin Xi wasn't sure how to respond. She has never seen the masked man's face before, but she felt a familiar feeling from Yuan ever since she met him. Perhaps that was her instincts telling her his identity.
"So you're trying to tell me that you are his reincarnation." Jin Xi frowned slightly.
"That's exactly what I am saying. You can believe me or not." He smiled.
"I see… So that's what you look like…" Jin Xi mumbled with a gentle smile on her face, acting a little out of character.
She then pointed in a certain direction and said, "Go that way. You will find the Master's— your residence there."
"Oh? So you're finally being cooperative—" Yuan suddenly stopped speaking, as Jin Xi's body suddenly started glowing.
"Thank you for seeing me again… I… I love you, Tian Xin…"
Jin Xi's body immediately dissipated into countless fragments before disappearing into thin air.
"Tian Xin… That is the masked man's name— the Lord's name, huh." Yuan stared at the empty air where Jin Xi stood just moments ago.
"Thank you, Jin Xi. I will make sure to take care of you in this life as well." Yuan gave a courteous bow before going in the direction Jin Xi pointed at.
