Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
[Age 82, you received a special medicinal pill, and after consuming it, a large amount of spirit energy poured into your body. You felt that you could try to break through to the ninth layer of the Qi Refining stage, but in order to be more stable, you decided to continue delaying.]
[Age 85, you passed by a small town and discovered that the town was suffering from the plague. You decided to lend a hand.]
[You accidentally discovered that the plague in the small town was caused by a devil cultivator. You realized that you were in big trouble.]
[You were drawn into the whirlpool of trouble.]
[Age 86. The devil cultivator that you destroyed was furious from embarrassment. He vowed to kill you as soon as possible. The other party was at the fifth layer of the Foundation Establishment stage. You were not a match for him. At the critical moment, Hou Yingyun appeared and blocked the fatal blow for you, but she paid with her life.]
[You took the opportunity to escape. Although you survived, you paid the price of an arm.]
[Age 87. For some unknown reason, you were found by that Devil cultivator.]
[You are no match for him.]
[You are dead.]
[Age: 87 years, 9 months, 17 days]
I am still not cautious enough. I am still not careful enough.
Chen Qianxue was able to face her death in the simulated Immortal life calmly.
As long as she died too many times, she would get used to it. If she failed too many times, she would not be afraid of failure anymore.
She just felt that she was still not careful enough. She should continue to straighten her attitude.
She should never do things that she should not do. She could not help others casually.
If she helped them, something would happen.
She had to be steady!
“Perhaps… if I simulate five or six more times, I can break through to the Foundation Establishment realm in the simulated Immortal life.”
Chen Qianxue shook her head. “Forget it. It’s useless to think too much now.”
“What will happen in the simulated Immortal cultivation…”
“I have no way to predict it.”
[Chen Qianxue has survived for 87 years, 09 months, and 17 days in the simulated Immortal cultivation. You have received the following rewards –]
[Reward 1: Spirit Accumulation Pill (after consuming it, a large amount of spiritual energy will flow into your body)]
[Reward 2: Caution (being conscientious)]
[Reward 3: Cultivation of the seventh level of the Qi Refinement stage (directly breaking through to the seventh level of the Qi Refinement stage)]
Was there a need to hesitate?
“I choose 3!”
His own strength was the root of everything. Bai Yi did not hesitate to choose the seventh level of the Qi Refinement stage.
He also suddenly realized that every time he broke through, It was Chen Qianxue’s calculation reward that allowed him to do so.
Chen Qianxue’s life in the simulation of Immortal cultivation was indeed not exciting enough. Moreover, due to the root of her bones, her cultivation was slow.
She was only at the eighth level of the Qi Refinement stage in her eighties.
The settlement reward for him was only at the seventh level of the Qi Refinement stage.
However, she was stable enough!
It was because of Chen Qianxue’s steadiness that she was able to break the previous record every time. This also benefited Bai Yi, the boss behind the scenes.
The Chen Residence.
Chen Qianxue also received her settlement reward. Looking at the Spirit Accumulation Pill in her palm, which was overflowing with pill fragrance, she couldn’t help but raise her eyebrows slightly, her expression was slightly strange. “Isn’t this the Spirit Accumulation Pill that I got when I was 82 years old?”
“It’s also considered a pretty good reward… this pill has quite an effect even for those in the Foundation Establishment stage. In the Immortal cultivation world, the reward price for this pill is estimated to be ten low-grade spirit stones.”
“If it was exchanged for money in the secular world, I’m afraid I wouldn’t be able to buy this pill without 10,000 taels of gold.”
She swallowed the Spirit Accumulation Pill without hesitation.
Just in time. She had just broken through to the second layer of the Foundation Establishment stage. At that time, in order to successfully break through, she had almost used up all the pills she had on her, leaving only some for healing.
This Spirit Accumulation Pill was just enough to allow her to slightly stabilize her cultivation at the second layer of the Foundation Establishment stage.
As for the reward this time…
Chen Qianxue was quite satisfied.
She knew very well that every time she simulated Immortal cultivation, it was extremely boring.
It did not have anything to do with the word ‘exciting’.
To be able to obtain this kind of reward was beyond her expectations.
Chen Qianxue’s side was calm, while Qin Jiao’s side was unwilling. Bai Yi’s side was happily waiting for the reward.
Except for the Li Clan in Qinghe County.
In the Li Clan’s mansion.
An old man with a white beard and eyebrows sat on the main seat, while the head of the Li Clan, Li Heshan, could only sit beside this old man.
The status of both parties was obvious at a glance.
Li Heshan’s attitude was very humble, and he spoke in the tone of a junior, he also said weakly with slight hesitation, “Grandpa, you just came down from the Spirit Sword Sect, and you want to deal with that Bai Yi? It’s the birthday of Chen Clan’s Old Master, and the other party wants to hold a banquet for nine days and nine nights. Only three or four days have passed…”
“If we make a move on Bai Yi at this time, will the matter blow up? Once that Holy Maiden finds out, the other party might be displeased.”
The white-bearded and white-browed old man was Li Heshan’s grandfather, and also the Li Clan’s current backer in the immortal cultivation world.
He also came from the Spirit Sword Sect like Chen Qianxue.
Unlike the identity of Holy Maiden Chen Qianxue, he was only a deacon of the Spirit Sword Sect.
Moreover, he was an outer deacon.
“Nine days and nine nights?” The old man frowned. “That kid from the Chen Clan is just celebrating his birthday, and he actually made such a big fuss?”
From his frown, it could be seen that he hesitated.
After all… He could not afford to offend Chen Qianxue.
Not only was Chen Qianxue’s status countless times higher than his, her cultivation was also much stronger than his.
He was only at the ninth level of the Qi Refinement stage.
As for Chen Qianxue?
She had already reached the Foundation Establishment stage!
However, the old man quickly said, “It doesn’t matter. So what if we host a banquet for nine days and nine nights? Is that Immortal cultivator called Bai Yi close to the Chen Clan’s Residence?”
Li Heshan thought for a moment and replied, “It’s quite far. For an ordinary person to walk, they would need to walk for the time it takes two incense sticks to burn.”
“That’s good then!” The old man’s furrowed brows relaxed.
After that, he let out a cold snort, and his tone was cold and sinister. “A mere itinerant cultivator dares to bully my Li Clan? He killed a member of the Li Clan, yet he still dares to stay in Qinghe County openly. How audacious!”
He glared at Li Heshan. “You don’t even know that the other party is an Immortal cultivator, yet you send people to provoke him. Do you want the Li Clanto fall into eternal damnation?”
“If the other party was just a bit stronger, even this old man wouldn’t be able to protect you, unworthy descendants!”
Li Heshan could only reveal a trace of an embarrassed smile.
It was hard to imagine what sort of scene would appear on the face of a Clan Leader.
The old man continued, “You said that the cultivator named Bai Yi’s sword was unstable when he was controlling it to kill. That means that the other party must have just broken through to the fifth level of the Qi Refinement not long ago. I’m afraid that he hasn’t even stabilized his stage yet.”
“A loose cultivator who broke through to the fifth level of the Qi Refinement stage at such a young age.”
He narrowed his eyes, and a hint of suspicion flashed through his eyes. “Either he has someone backing him, or he has obtained some kind of treasure.”
The probability of someone backing him was not high.
If there was someone backing him… would he still suffer such humiliation? He would have slaughtered the Li Clan long ago. When he returned to the Li Clan from the mountain, all he would see was a pile of corpses.
In other words… It was very likely that he had obtained some treasure!
For example, a precious medicinal pill? Or a Cultivation Method? Or an inheritance?
The old man could not help but become restless. He had already been stuck at the ninth layer of the Qi Refinement stage for a long time, and his lifespan was slowly slipping away. It seemed that he would not be able to live for long.
He urgently needed to break through to a higher realm in order to obtain a longer lifespan.
If he wanted to break through, he needed resources.
The resources of the Spirit Sword Sect were unable to satisfy him. He was stuck at a bottleneck.
