Chapter 102: Black Cloth Bag
With just a wink, Han Weiwei instantly understood him and started her performance. Due to their compatible mutual coordination, and also the fact that the Whitejade Crane was indeed pretty unsuitable for riding, Wei Suo didn’t argue with this beauty. Instead, he started interrogating her. “Did something go wrong in your mind, why did you come here so late at night?”
“It’s because of you.” The stammering Han Weiwei finally depressedly reply.
“Wa! Wei Suo, you guys really are in cahoots!” The old man yelped in mischief.
“Cahoots your head.” Wei Suo rolled his eyes. “How is it because of me?”
“It’s all because you said i’m a big bully, treating spiritual stones like rocks.” Han Weiwei pouted. “It just so happened when I was moody, I started quarrelling with a slut. That slut looked as if she was in that ‘700 spiritual stones’ business, her robe was so short her butt was leaking out. Then someone said I was a spoilt princess of the Precious Treasure Pavilion, if I wasn’t from the Precious Treasure Pavilion I would be nothing. What, I can’t even earn my own spiritual stones for cultivation? Don’t even talk about spiritual stones, I was so frustrated I wanted to instantly earn a pile of spiritual stones and slap that slut’s face with it. That’s how I end up with the idea of killing some demonic beasts.”
“Can you stop bringing up that 700 spiritual stones thing. I just wanted to see what that was about that’s all, but you misunderstood me straightaway.” Wei Suo frustratedly glared at Han Weiwei. “Clearly, you showed some sense of shrewdness and intellect when cooperating just now. Why can you really be an idiot sometimes? Even if you wanted to prove yourself, you shouldn’t try earning spiritual stones at night, right?”
Feeling wronged, Han Weiwei sought to rebut him. “But I had a lot of powerful things on me; with my Cyan Bamboo Sword and other artifacts, slaying some demonic beasts wouldn’t be a problem.”
“Wouldn’t be a problem? How much do you even know about the outside world. Many Heavenly Circuit Stage cultivators, even those level 3-4 and above, do not even dare to lurk around at night. And yet you say there’s no problem?” Wei Suo scoffed, and continued. “But what happened to you? Based on your cultivation and your artifacts, how did you end up in such a sorry state with those wolves?”
“How would I know my luck would be so bad. The first creature I met was a twin-headed canine.” Han Weiwei’s face turned sour. “That dog was enormous, stinky and drooling all over. Such a sickening filth.”
“Twin-headed canine? You met a twin-headed canine here in Ashbone mountain?” Wei Suo’s face changed.
It couldn’t be determined if this beauty’s luck was good or bad.
Twin-headed Canine. This name indeed sounded pretty ordinary, but it was actually a demonic beast that could release fire and thunder element attacks. It was a level 5 beast, and not at all inferior to an Elder Mind Devouring Bug.
Actually, a level 5 demonic beast that had powerful magical powers, should’ve already been discovered by strong cultivators near Spirit Peak City. It should’ve been exterminated long ago. Within the Heavenly Dome, this kind of level 5 demonic beast should’ve been a rare existence.
“There were two of them.” Han Weiwei miserably pouted.
“Two?” Wei SUo almost choked on his saliva. “Then how did you escape?”
“I had a Rank 3 Blink talisman.” Han Weiwei batted her eyelid. “It was just that my luck was exceedingly bad; one blink and I ended up inside the nest of those Wolfbats, that’s how I ended up being pursued.”
“A Twin-headed Canine normally feasts on Thunder Niter, it seems like there’s a Thunder Niter ore mine here within Ashbone Mountain.” The old man spoke to Wei Suo. “That’s a useful information. Even though a Twin-headed Canine appears vile, its flesh is very nourishing to a cultivator. It can revitalize the cultivator’s body, and is extremely beneficial in cultivation. Seems like we need to plan, and swiftly kill those two Twin-headed Canine before consuming them. You have to treat this little beauty a little better to find where she met those two dogs.”
(TN: Niter is a type of salt)
“Oh right.” Han Weiwei suddenly recalled something as she asked Wei Suo. “Didn’t you mention that person you were chasing was very important to you? Who is he?”
Upon bringing up cultivator Chen, Wei Suo’s expression instantly turned ugly. “He was a good friend of my parents last time. 10 years ago, my parents went away with from the Heavenly Dome, but they never came back after.”
“That means, he…..” Han weiwei suddenly realized the severity of the matter, her face turned awkward.
“Forget it. This is fate, we can’t explain it. It’s like how you encountered two Twin-headed Canine when others cannot even find one normally.” Seeing Han Weiwei’s apologetic look, Wei Suo waved his hands as he opened up the black cloth bag cultivator Chen threw at him.
“What is he trying to say?” The old man’s face turned slightly dark as he whispered into Wei Suo’s ears.
The worst scenario happened, the black cloth bag did not have a single explanation about matters concerning his parents. As for the black cloth, Wei Suo had examined it thoroughly, it was merely an ordinary cloth; it had no marks or hidden traces nor words.
That meant that when cultivator Chen said it could explain things, it was a complete lie.
However, the thing inside the black cloth bag was indeed rather suspicious.
Yellow Elemental Essence. That Yellow Elemental Essence that caught Wei Suo’s eyes previously was inside the bag. Apart from it, there was a spiritual stones pouch, a pellet bottle and a warmly glowing, faint blue magic pearl.
Wei Suo opened the spiritual stones pouch. Within it were 25 high quality spiritual stones.
25 high quality spiritual stones, that was equivalent to 2,500 low quality spiritual stones. After opening the pellet bottle, a strange fragrance dispersed out.
Han Weiwei looked at the pellet with a widened, shocked eyes. This was a pellet Wei Suo had seen numerous times.
Within the pellet bottle, was shockingly a pellet that only Ji Ya could concoct back in Spirit Peak City. A Thought Division Stage cultivator could instantly advance a level after consuming it, yet its side effect would be devastating to a cultivator’s Divine Sea and body. In the next 5 years, the cultivator wouldn’t be able to advance at all. It was the United Void Pellet.
As for that faint blue pearl, it was a magic pearl formed inside an advanced level 6 Blue Water Toad demonic beast. The magic pearl had a unique water isolation functionality, when entering any water body, it could isolate the water away by 6-7 metres. With such a water isolation method, one could easily dive underwater to hunt water elemental demonic beasts.
A water elemental demonic beast had gentler internal medicinal properties, and were suitable to concoct advanced pellet medicines.
Such an isolating water magic pearl was indeed rarer than an authentic spirit artifact, its value would certainly surge within a grand auction. It would be worth at least over 20,000 low quality spiritual stones.
This object obviously had no explanations with regards to Wei Suo’s parents.
But the value of it was exceedingly high, and cultivator Chen even left him the Yellow Elemental Essence; even his spiritual stones pouch was given to him. What did this mean?
Wei Suo gazed at these preciously objects in a daze. Was he just feeling guilty, and trying to make amends to me?
In the past, if Wei Suo was presented a thousand low quality spiritual stones, he would be over the moon already. But now, Wei Suo’s heart felt an unfathomably deep loneliness, not a single thread of excitement was present.
“Then what should we do? Do you want to find him?” Han Weiwei’s heart was feeling awfully terrible compared to Wei Suo. What Wei Suo didn’t know was, her parents were already not around. Hence, she could understand how Wei Suo was feeling much more than others. Especially when a matter was stalled for so long, but suddenly hints had surfaced, yet it just vanished once again.
“Go where to find him? Right now, as long as he hides anywhere quietly in this mountain, we won’t be able to locate him. Moreover, I don’t wish to encounter any creatures like the Twin-headed Canine or Thunder Owls type of creatures.” Wei Suo shook his head, walking over to the red robed cultivator’s corpse. “Let’s first dispose of this matter. Didn’t he mention the person seeking my life would come to collect me? If you don’t want any more trouble, hurry up and return to Spirit Peak City.”
“I want to see who is trying to kill you.” Han Weiwei shook her head as she walked beside Wei Suo.
Wei Suo didn’t reply, he concentrated on searching the corpse’s body.
But to his disappointment; even though he had a black Treasure Receiving Pocket, there was actually not a single offensive-type artifact apart from his already wrecked, formidable flying sword.
Furthermore, when they crossed hands previously, all his defensive-type shields had already been expended fully. Hence, his Treasure Receiving Pocket was utterly devoid of artifacts, apart from several average talismans, there were only 2 pellet bottles and one spiritual stones pouch.
Within the pellet bottle, one was filled with dozens of energy recovering pellets. The other was filled with Golden Spirit Pellets. It seemed like this red robed cultivator used Golden Spirit Pellets to cultivate.
The Spiritual stones pouch wasn’t swelling at all. Seeing such thin proceeds, even the old man had to console Wei Suo. “It’s fine, although his flying sword is wrecked, its base can be reforged, and is worth at least 7-8 thousand spiritual stones alone.”
But once he opened the spiritual stone pouch, the old man and Wei Suo suddenly turned ecstatic.
Within his pouch, was shockingly purely high grade spiritual stones, a total of 70 pieces! It was even higher than what the red robed cultivator mentioned previously of 5-6 thousand low quality spiritual stones.
Apart from those spiritual stones, there was another tiny jade strip.
“Thunderclap Sword Art!”
The contents of the jade strip, was actually a rare sword art. Wei Suo didn’t bother looking in detail as he delightedly stored it. Then he flew towards the direction of the 5 wolfbats that he slayed previously.
