Chapter 120: Final preparations
An alluring fragrance permeated Wei Suo’s entire Heaven Grade residence.
In a huge boiling copper pot, fragrance assimilated out of the dense frothing golden soup. A silky tender ‘Dog meat’ pleasing to the eye, causing one to reflexively lick the fingers.
3 days later, the flavour of the ‘Dog meat’ stew had reached its pinnacle. Moreover, the flesh of a Twin-headed Canine was honestly a delicious delicacy.
If one could indulge in this ‘Dog meat’ stew with two cups of matured wine, the flavour would be pure bliss.
However, Wei Suo was forcefully swallowing it down in anguish.
It couldn’t be help. No matter how good something tasted, consecutively eating it for 3 days was totally unbearable. When a cultivator reaches Divine Sea stage level 2, he could go without food for 10 days to half a month. But once he consumes something, his digestive abilities wasn’t something ordinary mortals could fathom……..for example, when an ordinary person consumes a kilo of meat, 1 day may not be enough to digest it. Yet for a Heavenly-circuit cultivator like Wei Suo, it just needed 2 incense sticks of time to digest.
Hence, within the 3 days, Wei Suo had been eating furiously like a stuffed duck.
Fortunately, the Spirit fruit garden hadn’t been completely decimated by Han Weiwei, and there were still several fruit trees, allowing Wei Suo a change of flavour every now and then. If not, he certainly have to eat while vomiting.
An oxen-sized Twin-headed Canine was really massive. Even after 3 consecutive days, the pot wasn’t empty yet.
This caused Wei Suo to be on the verge of tears…….
However, the efficacy of the ‘Dog meat’ stew was certainly excellent. 3 days later, Wei Suo could distinctly feel his qi and blood transforming exuberantly. Moreover, his body tempering had improved as well. Even refining cultivation resources became livelier and was faster than usual.
The faster one could absorb spiritual energy, the faster one’s speed of cultivation. This was akin to raising one’s innate potential.
Every cultivator had unique innate potential. In the cultivation world, there was a saying that different cultivators possessed different spirit roots. For a cultivator with fire spirit roots, they could learn fire elemental skill techniques quicker. Moreover, when releasing fire elemental skills, one’s ferocity would be amplified compared to normal cultivators. Similarly were cultivators with water spirit roots or wind spirit roots, the faster the speed of training water or wind elemental skills. The best innate potential was heaven spirit roots, one who possessed frightening talents in all elements, even one’s rate of absorbing spirit energy was faster than the norm……these heavenly gifted individuals were candidates that powerful sects sought out. Once they joined a sect, they would immediately be converted into an elite disciple to nurture.
For example, Shui Ling’er that was hailed as the number one beauty of Heavenly Profound continent. She was a cultivator with water spirit roots.
Although Wei Suo’s innate potential wasn’t considered bad compared to cultivators with Heaven spirit roots, there was a stark difference.
Although Wei Suo wanted to vomit, he didn’t stop eating. Because, he was afraid once he stopped, he would never touch this ‘Dog meat’ stew ever again.
Finally, after another day,Wei Suo finally cleaned up the entire ‘Dog meat’ stew…….
Stuffing himself with several fruits, he finally eliminated the nauseous sensation. Wei Suo then headed for the Spirit hot springs to soak. After relaxing and feeling gratified for finally finishing a meal, he finally returned to the room for testing skills and artifacts.
Upon entering the room, Wei Suo immediately noticed. Soaking inside the faint greenish Nurturing Demon liquid, the Mind Devouring Bug had grown rounder again.
It was completely obvious that this Mind Devouring Bug had overshadowed Han Weiwei’s own, and even appeared more menacing.
As he strolled forward to examine it closely, Wei Suo’s eyes flickered with surprise.
Apart from its rounder big head, this Mind Devouring Bug seemed to have become slightly translucent……
Which indicated that the most crucial concealment abilities of a Mind Devouring Bug, was gradually displaying itself.
If a dozen days later, this Mind Devouring Bug could thoroughly conceal itself, and was powerful enough to walk carefree and unburdened under the sunlight after smearing Murong Chen’s special medicinal liquid; then it would be tremendously useful to Wei Suo in the Sky Valley.
After closer observations of the Mind Devouring Bug and the Nurturing Demon liquid, Wei Suo’s delight splitted into worry as well.
The faint greenish Nurturing Demon liquid hadn’t evaporated much. Besides, it was recorded inside the Beasts Slaving booklet that the Nurturing Demon liquid would slowly seep into the Mind Devouring Bug’s body. It wasn’t like absorbing the yellow-elemental essence fluid……and after 3 days, the luster of the Nurturing Demon liquid had clearly faded more. It was obvious there wasn’t much medicinal strength left.
With 9-clover vermillion fruit, frozen-tip flower, red-caterpillar fungus and a level 3 water elemental demonic pellet to concoct a batch of Nurturing Demon liquid that was worth a hundred low grade spiritual stones. It could be used for 5 days.
However, with its current luster, the Nurturing Demon liquid could probably last another 2 days. But as the medicinal strength became more sparse, the growth of the Mind Devouring Bug would decline.
Slightly grumbling, Wei Suo willed the Mind Devouring Bug to crawl out from the jade basin. He then poured the Nurturing Demon liquid into several bottles. Then he poured a new batch of Nurturing Demon liquid.
Beforehand, he had already prepared a total of 6 batches of Nurturing Demon liquid. The reason he did this was to urge the Mind Devouring Bug to quickly advance a level before entering Sky Valley. Anyway, the old liquid wasn’t fully wasted yet, in the future he could still utilize it to bathe the Mind Devouring Bug. It wasn’t considered a waste…..
After changing a new batch of Nurturing Demon liquid, Wei Suo tossed the two dog heads of the Twin-headed canine beside the jade basin, allowing the Mind Devouring Bug free reign over it. He then left the room directly and returned to his quarters. He began focusing on comprehending the last stance of the ‘Golden Serpent Thunder Technique’ , primarily on the vast area of effect skill ‘Chaotic Dance of the Golden Serpents’.
As for the Mind Devouring Bug enjoying its meal, he had completely zero interest. Besides, he could just check up on the Mind Devouring Bug 3 days later……..
3 days later, after mastering his proficiency in the ‘Chaotic Dance of the Golden Serpents’, Wei Suo once again walked into the Mind Devouring Bug’s residence.
The two dog heads had already been made empty shell ration packs. Sleeping soundly inside the Nurturing Demon liquid, the Mind Devouring Bug only grew rounder slightly, its entire body was clearly blurry and transparent.
In the following intervals of 3 days, Wei Suo would enter to change the Nurturing Demon liquid.
After 9 days passed, before changing the fifth batch of Nurturing Demon liquid, the Mind Devouring Bug that no longer grew much in size actually shedded its skin. After shedding, its exterior was covered in faint silvery glitters, as though it was completely concealed.
This caused Wei Suo to jump for joy, as he changed to the 6th batch of Nurturing Demon liquid. Wei Suo once again exited the room…….
When Wei Suo returned, he did so carrying a stove over.
After several hours, Wei Suo carried a huge vase of earthen colored fluid into the Mind Devouring Bug’s room. He then swapped it with the bland looking Nurturing Demon liquid.
Appearing like a silvery light illusion, the Mind Devouring Bug started absorbing enthusiastically after leaping into the earthen colored fluid.
Having sensed the excitement of the Mind Devouring Bug he was controlling, Wei Suo brimmed with joy. His lips curled into a bitter smile.
This earthen colored fluid, was a stronger Nurturing Demon liquid recorded in the Beasts Slaving booklet.
At present, it could be seen how effective the recorded recipe in the Beasts Slaving booklet was. Such a medicinal fluid would certainly allow the Mind Devouring Bug to mature rapidly……
However, it required 3 times the effort and resources to prepare this Nurturing Demon liquid. This batch alone exhausted 300 low grade spiritual stones.
At this moment, there was still 5 days before the Five-colored venom miasma would disperse from Sky Valley.
Feeling a little anxious, Wei suo prepared a total of 3 batches of this earthen Nurturing Demon liquid; changing it daily. Until the final batch, then the Mind Devouring Bug shed its outer later once again!
This time, Wei Suo nervously observed the entire process of the Mind Devouring Bug shedding its skin.
When its prior skin cracked into tiny crevices, allowing the newly matured Mind Devouring Bug to poke out; Wei Suo couldn’t help exclaiming loudly. “Granny! I’ve finally done it!”
This time, the Mind Devouring Bug was completely invisible. Even Wei Suo could only sense its presence there, but could no longer see it!
Under Wei Suo’s command, the completely covert Mind Devouring Bug thrusted against the Thousand Refinement Silver in the room. Following the light ding, a tiny concavity appeared on the Thousand Refinement Silver.
Such a might was barely satisfactory. Even Wei Suo’s ‘Cyan Water Blades’ when he was at Divine Sea stage level 2 wasn’t as poor. It couldn’t even break through a half-spirit class defensive artifact.
At present, this Mind Devouring Bug didn’t know how to utilize its divine-sense to attack, it could be said to be weak. However, Wei Suo wasn’t the least bit disappointed. Besides, this was only a Mind Devouring Bug that had only been born a month ago. Being able to utterly disappear was already satisfactory. As for the display of might, it was sufficient to break a bone. It could do fine as a sneak attack in certain critical scenarios.
After testing the Mind Devouring Bug’s bone thruster assault, Wei Suo allowed it to continue bathing inside the earthen colored Nurturing Demon liquid. He then returned to his quarters, and began scribbling silver talisman symbols on a palm-sized cyan talismanic paper.
This talisman was a special recording talisman, specially used for inscripting certain secrets. The silver talisman symbols would automatically conceal the words for 15 days. Once 15 days passed, the silver writings would automatically appear.
After Wei Suo very seriously scribbled a chunk of things onto two talismanic papers, he then stored them into this Treasure Receiving Pocket. Then he headed out of his Heaven Grade residence towards Han Weiwei’s residence.
