Chapter 121: Blemished robe
According to their prior agreement after tugging the summoning gold thread, a sneaky looking Han Weiwei popped her head from a blue door. Waving to Wei Suo, she signalled him in.
“Let’s talk inside, I told my senior sister I went into closed door cultivation to breakthrough to the Heavenly Circuit stage.”
Wei Suo nodded and strolled inside the blue door. Han Weiwei finally sighed as she asked Wei Suo, “Why, what good news have you brought today?”
Wei Suo didn’t answer her straightforwardly, but asked a question instead, “Found news of the Amethyst-Fox rose yet?”
“Nope, possibly not even the entire Spirit Peak City has one.” Han Weiwei shook her head in dejection. “I’ve already released news in preparation to purchase with a massive fortune. However, such a spirit medicine was only auctioned once in High Heaven City, and was valued at 100,000 low grade spiritual stones. I cannot afford it as of now, perhaps I’ll gather some spiritual stones from the Precious Treasure Pavilion next time, and slowly accumulate more spiritual stones. Besides, spending a fortune of spiritual stones won’t hurt my senior sister, but if my cultivation doesn’t advance a stage even after 5 years, my senior sister will be devastated. Moreover…..”
“Moreover what?” Hearing Han Weiwei pausing suddenly, Wei Suo couldn’t help asking.
“Forget it, even If i told you, you won’t understand it. My senior sister is a great concoction master, pretty much many guys are dying to marry her. Amongst those guys, two possess the strength to acquire an Amethyst-Fox rose, but my senior sister loathes them.” Han Weiwei glanced at Wei Suo and continued. “Because of that, I really don’t wish for my senior sister to know I’ve consumed a United Void pellet.”
Wei Suo nodded in understanding. Although he hadn’t seen her before, Ji Ya was hailed as Spirit Peak city’s number 1 beauty. Just using one’s buttocks to think, he could imagine many pursuers with high status and prominence. “Sounds like you and your senior sister have an excellent relationship?” Wei Suo nodded as he jealously added in that line. Ever since he was 13, there wasn’t a single kin by his side.
“Of course, my parents have long passed away. My senior sister has always been taking care of me since I was young. Initially my senior sister’s cultivation talents are better than mine, and was even a fire spirit-root cultivator. Yet after seeing my inadequacy in concoction, she chose to become a concoction master for the Precious Treasure Pavilion. She was already a Heavenly Circuit stage cultivator long ago, if not for her decision to focus on alchemy and lacking time to cultivate, she would have probably trained to Thought Division stage by now.” Upon hearing Wei Suo raising the topic of Ji Ya, Han Weiwei became slightly saddened. “I must earn more spiritual stones and increase my cultivation quicker. Once my personal cultivator is sufficient, then my senior sister wouldn’t have such a hard time.”
“Ji Ya is a fire spirit-root Heavenly Circuit stage cultivator?” Wei Suo was instantly baffled after hearing that Spirit Peak City’s ice beauty was actually a fire spirit-root disposition cultivator. He reckoned that only a handful in Spirit Peak City knew about this. After listening to Han Weiwei, Wei Suo’s impression towards she and Ji Ya soared favourably. To a cultivator, cultivation was everything. Only a handful in this era would willingly forsake their cultivation for others.
“Right, what’s your reason for being here?” Han Weiwei recalled the matter after seeing Wei Suo pondering deeply. She gazed at Wei Suo with her misty long eyelashes and asked.
“These two are for you.” Wei Suo produced two Recording talismans and handed them to Han Weiwei.
Lacking knowledge and experience, Han Weiwei suspiciously asked, “What’s this?”
“It’s a recording talisman, roughly similarly to that ‘Recording-Cyan talisman’ of your Precious-Treasure Pavilion. But my cultivation isn’t enough, and I cannot use those jade talismans.” Wei Suo gazed at Han Weiwei and explained. “I need to leave to a distant place for certain matters. If I don’t return after 15 days, keep one of these talismans with you. Then help me hand the other to Nangong Yuqing.”
“Wei Suo, you aren’t going to part forever right?” Han Weiwei gazed at Wei Suo, filled with doubts. “I can tell something is wrong with your words, what atrocious dangers are you getting involved in again?”
Wei Suo observed Han Weiwei. “I’m just afraid of the unexpected. Just previously we almost died hunting for the Twin-headed canines. To cultivators, dangers are part of us. Even for me, without slight confidence, I wouldn’t risk all.”
Han Weiwei nodded in agreeableness. “That’s likely it. A cowardly wretched guy like you, wouldn’t possibly surface at places without assurance.”
“Wakao!” Hearing Han Weiwei’s words, Wei Suo almost slammed his head into the floor and cried out. “Cut the crap. Just say if you want it, I’ve marked down several beneficial details onto the talismans.”
“Yes, of course I want it.” Han Weiwei swiftly received the recording talismans with a cheery face, and added. “Wei Suo couldn’t have possibly written a love letter to Nangong Yuqing right? I won’t die from the mushy cringiness right. I say first, I definitely cannot resist the urge to peep.”
“……” Wei Suo was utterly speechless. In the end letter, it showed how does she wishes. Then, he turned and left.
After taking two steps, Han Weiwei immediately called out from behind. “Wei Suo, I’m only going to safekeep the two recording talismans for 15 days, you better return to collect it. If you aren’t back within 15 days, I’m serious about being a peeping tom. Right, I heard about something else. There’s a place called Sky Valley outside of Heaven Dome, and it is coincidentally opened now. I originally wanted to ask you if you have any interest in testing our luck there.”
“I got it.” Wei Suo didn’t look back and only waved his hand. “That place is too dangerous. If you wish to keep your life, then settle down a little. When I’m back, we’ll earn more spiritual stones.” After speaking, Wei Suo headed out of her Heaven Grade residence with a complicated heart.
In actual fact, the contents of both recording talismans were exactly identical, recording the concoction methods of his Fireball talisman and Heaven Mending pellet.
The reason Wei Suo did this was because he had no other kin in this world. Only Nangong Yuqing and the perky ass beauty were friends that had gone through life and death scenarios with him. If he really died in Sky Valley, he might as well leave an inheritance for them. Besides, Han Weiwei’s cultivation was stalled, and the Heaven Mending pellet could still allow her cultivation technique to advance.
Right now, Han Weiwei was merely training in a high-rank Profound level true-energy cultivation technique. Within the 5 years, she could use the Heaven-Mending pellet to raise her cultivation technique level, which is equivalent to advancing a stage. This could be considered a sliver of consolation to her.
Yet on the contrary, if Wei Suo safely returned, he would definitely retrieve the two recording talismans. Besides, one could share trials and tribulations in the cultivation world, but sharing fortunes was another level. Moreover, if an accident were to happen to Han Weiwei or Nangong Yuqing and the concoction methods were leaked, then Wei Suo’s current cultivation superiority would vanish from the face of the earth; it would be disastrous.
Unless the two of them became Dao companions with him and had a different relationship, that would involve a whole new discussion.
Thinking till here, Wei Suo’s emotions soared mischievously, because he felt no matter Nangong Yuqing or Han Weiwei, these two beauties were both of decent standards.
Furthermore, Wei Suo wasn’t heading there to fight it out, he was prepared to be constantly running and fleeing, plundering any good fortunes on the way. Thus, he had zero intentions of bringing Han WeiWei nor the two dummy brothers along.
With a true spirit class defensive and offensive artifact, a concealing artifact robe, a flying magic treasure, a Divine-peach jade that allowed him to venture into decaying aurora areas. As long as he didn’t encounter a specialized assassin, a Thought Division stage cultivator who similarly had a Divinespead jade, then Wei Suo had great confidence of his escaping capabilities. If he brought Han Weiwei and the rest along, they would in turn become burdens.
As of now, whether it was the Ninepeaks’s Murong Chen, or the Golden Jade pavilion, both forged artifacts had been completed.
A half hour later. Disguised in wholesome deceptiveness, even consuming a Disguise pellet, Wei Suo strolled out of the Golden Jade Pavilion brimming with joy. After taking a detour, he returned to the city north and marched into the doors of the Ninepeaks.
Master Ouyang, introduced by Golden Jade Pavilion’s Shopkeer Tian, was indeed correct. The back carapace of the Elder Scarlet beetle was indeed forged into a true spirit class defensive shield.
The forged shield from the elder Scarlet beetle’s carapace had astonishing thickness, able to guard Wei Suo’s entire front.
Moreover, its crude unpolished sore surface released a menacing air. Apart from its defensive capabilities being of true spirit class, its intrinsic nature of fire element was even stimulated by Master Ouyang’s formation array.
When casting out this magic shield, its surface would exhibit a thin inferno, any poor naked strikes against it would result in backlash burn damages. Due to it being forged from an elder Scarlet beetle’s carapace, and this was Wei Suo’s first true spirit class shield, and so he named it ‘Scarlet-shell Shield’ .
Since there wasn’t a problem with that defensive artifact, the next up was Murong Chen’s forged concealment robe.
“Senior Li.” Wei Suo entered the entrance of the Ninepeaks. The tan skinned attendant upon noticing Wei Suo, immediately respectfully greeted him; then respectfully and cautiously continuing, “Our shopmaster has been awaiting senior’s arrival. Does senior wish to purchase anything else, or should we head over to meet our shopmaster?”
“Just bring me to see your boss.” Answering him naturally, Wei Suo once again stepped into Murong Chen’s room at the backyard.
“Brother Li. To be frank, there were certain slip-ups while forging your robe.” Observing Wei Suo, Murong Chen started with an apologetic statement. “It could only be said to be a half success.”
“A half success?” Wei Suo’s expression changed slightly. This concealment robe had indeed occupied a large priority in his heart by now.
“That is indeed so.” Feeling apologetic, Murong Chen started unfolding and tidying it, and finally handed a faintly shimmering silver robe to Wei Suo. “While forging the robe, I had intended to forge a concealment yet infused with half-spirit class defensive nature magic robe. When i was forging it, I discovered that the elder Mind Devouring Bug’s carapace contains unique properties of deflecting certain powers from skills. However because of that, a problem occurred and the forging failed, instead, it damaged the original defensive capabilities. Therefore, though this robe still possesses its invisible characteristics, its defense is beneath half-spirit class; and cannot block the assaults from half-spirit class artifacts.”
“Hu.” His expression rather downcast, Wei Suo sighed bitterly.
“I’m extremely sorry for failing on my part.” Murong Chen humbly continued. For this robe, I’ll only charge 40% of my forging fees.”
“Alright.” Wei Suo immediately nodded in agreement.
Since Murong Chen had already warned him of non-hundred percent success rate beforehand, and that the robe had already been forged, being bitter about it was pointless. Now, he only had to be more cautious while utilizing it, preventing the opponent from striking first.
