Chapter 42: Let Me Tell You a Secret, I’m Investigating Prodigies

“Chivalrous people?”

“Who wouldn’t want to snatch the Fire Cat King’s spirit core from you? That thing is almost worth 100 million, right?”

“They think of money as dirt?”

Shangguan Yan could not believe it and felt that Gong Ziliang was hiding something. The matter was definitely not so simple.

“They’re the people of the City Lord of the Green Cloud City, Bai Qingfeng. Do you think they’ll fight with such an ordinary and handsome person like me?”

“However, at that time, they indeed said that my bones were exquisite and my talent was extraordinary, so they gave me this Fire Cat King’s spirit core. They said that I could either sell it or absorb it myself to directly enter the Qi Refinement Realm.”

To be honest, when Gong Ziliang said this, even he felt that it sounded fake.

However, the truth was almost like this. Bai Qingfeng indeed said that his bones were exquisite and his talent was extraordinary. Bai Chuxia also said that the Fire Cat King’s spirit core could be sold for 100 million. If he absorbed it himself, he could also step into the Qi Refinement Realm.

Therefore, he was not lying.

Gong Ziliang felt very convinced in his mind.

“Damn! Young Master, you’re good. You even know the City Lord of Green Cloud City, Senior Bai Qingfeng. Introduce him to me someday. Cough cough, I’m definitely not doing this for the spirit core. Yes, really.”

“However, speaking of which, I’m really envious of you. You broke through to the Qi Refinement Realm on a trip down the mountain and could still meet Senior Bai Qingfeng. I ate a high-grade Yellow-rank Spirit Essence Pill and only reached the tenth-stage Martial Body Realm. Now, I don’t feel like I can break through at all. As expected, I’m doomed.”

Gong Ziliang had taught him many of the popular phrases in his previous life, including his favorite “Damn, you son of a watermelon!” in the past.

When Gong Ziliang heard this, his body trembled slightly.

“High-grade Yellow-rank Spirit Essence Pill?”

“Damn, where did you get this high-grade Spirit Essence Pill? Don’t tell me you went to steal it? You’ve changed, son. You’ve changed!” Gong Ziliang said in disbelief.

He could absorb the Fire Cat King’s spirit core because of the augmentation of the Legendary System.

Even normally, it was difficult to obtain a medium-grade Yellow-rank medicinal pill. What he usually ate were low-grade medicinal pills.

In the end?

As soon as he returned, he heard that Shangguan Yan had swallowed a high-grade Yellow-rank medicinal pill, Spirit Essence Pill!

However, the main point was that this guy actually did not break through to the Qi Refinement Realm. Wouldn’t this be a joke if word got out?

One had to know that Shangguan Yan’s original cultivation level was at the ninth-stage Martial Body Realm. In the end, after consuming a high-grade Yellow-rank Spirit Essence Pill, he only rose by one stage when he reached the tenth-stage Martial Body Realm.

Tsk, tsk, tsk…

Could it be that this thing’s physique was a bottomless pit?

One high-grade Yellow-rank Spirit Essence Pill was equivalent to 100 wisps of spiritual qi gathered together.

Logically speaking, it was basically not a problem for him to break through from the ninth-stage Martial Body Realm to the Qi Refinement Realm. This was because when he broke through from the tenth-stage Martial Body Realm to the Qi Refinement Realm, he only needed 49 spirit stones.

Could it be that he had to spend money? He had to spend more than a thousand spirit stones?

No way!

Even if he wanted to spend money, according to the savings Shangguan Yan earned in the Profound Heaven Sect, it was simply not enough.

Although the ingots in Gong Ziliang’s game bag could be exchanged for spiritual qi, they could not be absorbed by Shangguan Yan.

Only when he reached Level 60 or VIP 5 could he activate the Sale Function and change the items to non-binding.

At this moment, Shangguan Yan looked at Gong Ziliang’s expression and grinned, secretly amused.

Then, after looking around, he leaned close to Gong Ziliang and whispered, “Young Master, let me tell you something. I told you this secretly. Others don’t know, so don’t tell anyone.”

“A few days ago, First Elder Liu suddenly came to find me for nothing. He said that he wanted me to be a spy in the outer sect and secretly investigate a hidden prodigy of our Profound Heaven Sect.”

“This high-grade Yellow-rank Spirit Essence Pill is First Elder Liu’s reward for me.”

“Moreover, First Elder Liu also said that as long as I find him, he can give me a Profound-rank martial technique. Hehe, don’t tell anyone.”

When he heard this, the corners of Gong Ziliang’s mouth twitched.

First Elder Liu?

Secret spy?

Find the hidden prodigy?

What was this?

Had he watched too many dramas?

“What’s going on?” Gong Ziliang asked curiously.

Why did it feel a little familiar?

He had to understand more about such interesting gossip.

After all… cough cough… The cultivation journey was originally boring. He had to listen to some interesting gossip to amuse himself.

Shangguan Yan’s expression immediately changed, and he pretended to lean back very carefully as he looked at Gong Ziliang and said, “What do you want to do? Why are you asking about this? This is the sect’s secret, I can’t tell you!”

When he heard this, Gong Ziliang directly patted Shangguan Yan’s head and was almost angered to the point of spitting blood and sending him away. He said, “You’re f*cking toxic, you know? You told me this yourself, and you still claim I’m asking around?”

“Oh…” Shangguan Yan’s expression changed again. He revealed an apologetic expression and replied, “I’m sorry, I let slip. I really can’t tell you the details, but there’s something I can tell you secretly.”

“Three days ago, on a night, there was a storm and lightning…”

Shangguan Yan had just started when he was directly stopped by Gong Ziliang. “Stop, stop, stop. I was still in the sect three days ago. Where did the rain and electricity come from that night?”

“I’m sorry, you’re exaggerating. I was just trying to create a tense atmosphere. Alright, alright, I’ll tell you.”

Shangguan Yan smiled awkwardly and continued, “On the night three days ago, the sky was originally very normal, but suddenly, a phenomenon appeared in the sky. A golden light shot into the sky from the back of our outer sect. The fluctuation of spiritual qi immediately attracted the attention of the elders and Sect Master, Xuan Guangzi.”

“It’s said that a golden dragon rose from the light and roared at the black cloud vortex. I heard from First Elder Liu… what it is… a high-grade Divine Body that’s rarely seen in a thousand years!”

“With the appearance of this high-grade Divine Body that’s rarely seen in a thousand years, our Profound Heaven Sect has a chance to be listed as a high-grade sect. Therefore, when Sect Master Xuan Guangzi and the elders wanted to protect this high-grade Divine Body, the phenomenon in the sky disappeared.”

“This is also what First Elder Liu asked me to investigate.”

“The phenomenon has disappeared so the high-grade Divine Body has failed to awaken. The possessor is very weak now and will definitely fall ill. He let me secretly investigate. As long as I find out who has fallen ill these few days or whose cultivation level has improved at lightning speed.”

“That person is most likely the one they want!”

Gong Ziliang was slightly stunned. When he heard this, why did he feel that this was talking about himself?

Wasn’t the night three days ago when the Legendary System was just activated?

At that moment, a dark cloud vortex and golden light appeared above his head…

Good lord!

Gong Ziliang was shocked.. It turned out that Shangguan Yan wanted to investigate him!
