Profound Sky Sect’s Treasury
From different Sects? Since they are all from different sects, why are they gathered together?
Su Yun stood up, and secretly sized them all up before speaking: “We are from the Snow Jade Palace, I am Wu Yun, and she is Wu Qing’er. Today we are here to gather some ingredients for our Master.”
“Gather ingredients? Snow Jade Palace?”
His eyes flashed with a look of distrust, but Qing’er took out a translucent badge, and showed it to them.
The middle aged lady in simple clothes saw it and nodded her head: “That’s right, that is truly the Snow Jade Palace’s disciples badge, I recognize it.”
“But since when did Snow Jade Palace begin to accept male disciples?” The ninth stage Spirit Soul Realm expert asked.
“This year.” Su Yun lied: “But coming back to this, you guys, why are you all in Black Prison Forest? And you are all from different sects? Why would people from different sects gather together?”
The question he asked was important, and prior to it, Qing’er was somewhat unable to restrain a smile from Su Yun’s nonsense, but when he asked these questions, Qing’er’s face also became serious.
The ninth stage Spirit Soul cultivator had accidentally let it slip that they were all from different sects, and to be inside the Black Prison Forest, there had to be a reason. Although it did not matter to Su Yun and Qing’er, but since they had met with them, they had to be careful.
The ninth stage Spirit Soul cultivator frowned, he could not see through Su Yun’s cultivation, but he could roughly guess Qing’er’s strength. From her Profound Spirit Qi, he could feel that she was around the sixth or seventh stage of the Spirit Soul Realm, and compared to the rest, she was naturally much stronger, but facing him, she was still rather lacking.
Just then, the seductive and alluring lady smiled and stood forward.
“Hey hey hey, everyone everyone, stop making it so tense, we are all brought together here from thousands of li away by fate, so shouldn’t it count for something that we all met here? Since it is fate, we can make friends! Come come come, the two of you, let me introduce us. This old fashioned man is called De Zhen, he dresses like an old fashioned person, but he is a ninth stage Spirit Soul Realm expert! And this man with a braid behind is Zhang Hu, that guy is called Li Fu Zai, this is Liu Jie, you can call her Big Sister Liu, and last but not least, I am called Cong Hong Chang, and as what Master De Zhen said, we are all from different sects, and the goal for us being here today, hehe, truth be told, we are looking for treasure.”
“Looking for treasure?”
Su Yun pretended to reveal a look of astonishment, but he quietly looked at the other people’s expressions. When Cong Hong Chang said that, it caused them all to be unhappy, all of their expressions seemed to be gloomy, and from that, It seemed that Cong Hong Chang was speaking the truth.
“Young Master, they are looking for treasure, I think that we should not join them to avoid more side issues from coming up.” Qing’er lightly pulled on Su Yun’s sleeves and said softly.
She was not a greedy person, treasures were like passing smoke to her, she prefered to be safe and sound with Su Yun.
Su Yun nodded his head, he agreed with Qing’er and was about to speak.
But then, Cong Hong Chang spoke again.
“Big brother Wu Yun, you might not know, but this treasure deposit, is a treasure deposit left by the ancestor of the Profound Sky Sect. Do you know of the Profound Sky Sect? That is one of the largest great sects in the continent. It is said that the treasure deposit holds countless of powerful treasures and pills of the Profound Sky Sect, and even unique consummate techniques that are only for the Sect Masters. If we are able to find this treasure deposit, we will be free from worries for our entire life! Right now I am the only one who knows of this treasure deposit, but just I alone am not enough to look for it, so on the road, I invited Master Zhen De, Master Zhang Hu, and Li Fu Zai along with Big Sister Liu. I did not know any of them previously, and it is because of this matter that we met. But right now we are still lacking two people, if you two would not mind, why not join us to look for the treasure deposit?”
Hearing that, Su Yun’s astonished face immediately got replaced by shock.
“What did you say? Profound Sky Sect’s Treasures?”
“Where did you get the news regarding this treasure?”
“Big Sister Qing’er, you don’t have to know about this, it is also considered my little secret.” Cong Hong Chang laughed, she was not as powerful as Qing’er, although she was older, but she still called Qing’er big sister: “But I can tell all of you, that the matter regarding this treasure is absolutely true, and not only that, I also know that inside this Treasure Deposit, is a grand plan regarding Profound Sky Sect, but what it is about, that I do not know.”
“Who cares what grand plan it is, what is important is that we obtain those treasures, what do we cultivators lack the most? Isn’t it good treasures and good pills? Once we find the treasure deposit, we will share them equally, and then take our separate roads! So stop delaying. If you guys are not willing then fine, anyway we have sufficient people, with or without you guys, it doesn’t make any difference.”
Zhang Hu shouted coarsely, he was impatient, as though he was unhappy that Cong Hong Chang had invited two more to join them. Having more people meant having to divide the loot further.
“Big Brother Zhang Hu, you cannot speak like that. According to the information that I have regarding the treasure deposit, it requires us to have two more people to join for it to be possible, it isn’t enough to do it by ourselves.”
“I will take the position of two then!”
“Big Sister Qing’er has a sixth stage Spirit Soul Realm cultivation though!” Cong Hong Chang laughed and said.
Zhang Hu: “…”
At their cultivation level, it was not strange for them to have treasures that can see through cultivation levels, and upon going out, they had to be careful who they were looking at. If they come across a master who disguises himself as a pig but eats tigers, then they would die without knowing anything.
“Honestly though, Big Brother Wu Yun, what cultivation realm are you in? Why can’t I see your strength?”
Cong Hong Chang giggled as she asked.
“My cultivation level is low, but I am wearing a screening treasure, that is why you are unable to tell.” Su Yun said casually.
“I see, so when you go out, to prevent anything from happening, when other people cannot see your cultivation level, they would not dare to do anything to you right?” Cong Hong Chang laughed and expressed understanding.
However, the rest appeared to be looking down on him, because majority of the cultivators who used treasures to hide their cultivation were the weaker cultivators. The experts despised such actions, and if they were able to intimidate cultivators stronger than them, it would earn themselves respect.
Cong Hong Chang looked at Su Yun with her bright big eyes, and asked: “Then, are the two of you interested in joining us to look for Profound Sky Sect’s Treasure Deposit?”
Hearing that, Su Yun lowered his head and started pondering.
“Young Master.” Seeing that Su Yun did not reject them directly, Qing’er was confused, so she asked: “Are you interested in the Treasure Deposit?”
“Who doesn’t like treasures? But Qing’er, you said it before, you’re not willing to mix in with them, and I truly want to refuse them, but when she said that the treasure belongs to Profound Sky Sect, and that it conceals a grand plan of theirs, I became interested.” Su Yun took a breath: “Qing’er, do you remember that Su Family originally wanted to marry you into the Profound Sky Sect’s Sect Leader’s son Tian She? I feel that the marriage is not that simple, if the Su Family was prepared to marry you to Tian She, why did they conduct training and groomed you? Was it to show the well matched link between the two? With the Su Family’s strength, no matter how hard they try to groom a patriarch’s daughter, it is unable to match up against Profound Sky Sect’s son, so I feel that they have another purpose. And since Profound Sky Sect is not willing to let us go, I want to see if we can find any clues through this treasure deposit, especially the grand plan that Cong Hong Chang spoke of, if we are lucky there will be some connection, and if we do stumble upon some clues, wouldn’t it be easier for us in the future to handle the Profound Sky Sect?”
Hearing that, Qing’er nodded: “Young Master is right, although we can hide, we cannot hide forever. Ultimately, we have to deal with the Profound Sky Sect. Since it is so, then we should join them.”
Hearing her confirmation, Su Yun did not think further, and said: “Since everyone invited us so passionately, I think we will stay in the Black Prison Forest with you guys!”
“That’s great! That means we have reached the required number of people.”
Cong Hong Chang revealed a happy expression.
“But come to think of it, Miss Cong, this is a fortuitous event, why did you not look for your close friends to help? Why look for strangers? Or is it more convenient to do it with strangers, than benefit your close friends?”
Just then, Su Yun asked.
That is a good question. Cong Hong Chang obviously knew that Su Yun would ask that, and revealed an alluring smile and said: “Initially, I had truly thought about asking my close friends to help, but after thinking about it for a few nights, I decided that strangers are more appropriate, because I do not want to see my close friends betray me.”
She spoke till there, and stopped.
But the people around understood what she meant. In front of such a large sum of wealth, a human’s heart would change, she did not want to see the people she cared about betray her for the sake of wealth, so to prevent such a thing from happening, she would rather team up with strangers.
Her train of thought was good, but in truth, her reason was still far-fetched.
“However, I do like to take advantage of strangers!” Cong Hong Chang with her bright eyes looking straight at Su Yun, suddenly perked up her snow white twin peaks, and giggled.
Seeing that, Qing’er immediately pulled onto Su Yun’s arm, looking at Cong Hong Chang as though she was looking at her greatest nemesis.
Her actions caused Cong Hong Chang to laugh.
After they had decided to join the group, they moved out.
The surprising thing was, although Cong Hong Chang was the one who held the information regarding the treasure deposit, the leader of the group was the one with the highest cultivation, De Zhen.
De Zhen maintained his indifferent expression the whole time, and before they did something, there would be a discussion and everyone would state their opinion before deciding.
But after interacting with them for a while, Su Yun realised that Zhang Hu and Li Fu Zai had a strange hostility against him, which made him puzzled. What have I done to provoke them?
“Black Prison Forest is Mongol West’s largest forest, and it is said that there are two massive Dragon Forest Regions inside the forest itself. Inside the Dragon Forest Regions, there is an abundance of Dragon Forest Trees, which is an uncommon material, if we can find these two Dragon Forest Regions, we can still profit from it. However, comparing it to the treasure deposit, the Dragon Forest Regions are simply not enough! According to the information I have, the Profound Sky Sect’s treasure deposit is inside one of the two Dragon Forest Regions.”
As Cong Hong Chang explained, everyone were nodding their heads. Liu Jiu had a unique mystical technique, and was able to easily navigate inside the forest, she found the accurate direction, and immediately everyone sped forward.
Black Prison was the biggest forest in the Mongol West Zone, and was also the most dangerous forest with many ferocious beasts lurking in it. Everyone knew how to fly, but in order to not attract the ferocious beasts, they could only travel by foot.
After travelling for an unknown period of time.
Bursts of wind swept past their ears.
Wind in the forest?
Everyone could sense something amiss, perspiration dripping down their heads.
Amongst the tall and strong trees, floated pale white mists.
“There’s something! Young Master, be careful!”
Qing’er who was always following behind Su Yun’s face changed, she immediately appeared in front of Su Yun, her eyes looking around cautiously.
Seeing that, Su Yun laughed involuntarily.
