Chapter 130: Mythical Underworld Immortal Lotus, Beauty beyond words
Wei Suo stood silently at the entrance of the ravine.
Rather than a ravine, it was more accurate to describe it as an earthen pit as the Sky Valley itself was shaped like a colossal cavern mountain valley.
Based on the simple map that Wei Suo held in hand, after passing through the pit, he would reach the place where the Purple Cloud Ginseng grew.
This pit was exceedingly flat, devoid of any giant trees or scattered rocks; and the ground was filled with short unique shrubs that sprouted black needle-leaves. This kind of shrubs bore fruits that emitted faint white glows in the dark.
After a muttering slightly to himself, Wei Suo pulled on his Concealment Robe and slowly sauntered into the circular pit that was at least a few kilometers……
The reason why Wei Suo chose to travel through directly, was precisely due to the flat terrain resulting in a lack of cover, there wouldn’t be any powerful traps present for cultivators. After entering with his Concealment Robe, he only had to walk for a distance. And by walking cautiously slow, no one would be able to tell that someone had passed through this part of the valley.
The further Wei Suo strolled, the colder it became. When there was only a few metres between him and the centre of the pit, Wei Suo’s face completely changed and his body couldn’t stop shivering.
Waves of shockingly icy winds seemingly threatened to enter his bones, so much so that even if he used true elemental energy, he still couldn’t resist.
“Land of Extreme Chilling Yin! This here is unexpectedly the rarely seen ‘Land of Extreme Chilling Yin’!” At this point, the green robed Old Man’s voice resounded in Wei Suo’s ears, and he shrieked, “Look over there! Hurry up and take a look there! It’s a Mythical Underworld Immortal Lotus!”
“Wei Suo, quickly harvest it! Ahhh! A Mythical Underworld Immortal Lotus surprisingly grew here. This is something that can directly modify a cultivator’s physique for the better, it’s a Heavenly Spirit Medicine that can allow the cultivator to form an Ice Spiritual Root disposition!”
“How do I harvest it?” Trembling, Wei Suo slowly retreated a few meters backward instead……
Under the constant yelling of the green robed Old Man, Wei Suo saw a place near the centre of the pit strangely emitting whiffs of deathly cold air, its surrounding was covered by bluish-black solid ice. Within the centre of that place grew a bluish-black 7 leaves lotus, as if it was an ice sculpture. Under the constantly blows of the deathly cold air, the ice sculpture-like leaves swayed slightly.
Mythical Underworld Immortal Lotus! Heavenly Spirit Medicine! One that could allow the cultivator to form an Ice Spiritual Root!
With the green robe Old Man spastic outcries, how would Wei Suo not know the value of this spirit medicine…….
These so-called Spiritual Roots of the Cultivation World, referred to possessing terrific innate talent in the respective fields. All of them were genius-level characters, with various major Sects fighting over such ‘treasures’.
Ice Spiritual Root. It represented one’s speed of cultivation in Ice elemental Martial or Cultivation Technique, would vastly outclass ordinary cultivators. As long as he could find a suitable Ice element Martial or Cultivation Technique, his rate of cultivation would frequently be 2-3 folds that of the average cultivator.
Moreover, having an ‘Immortal’ as part of the spirit medicine’s name, what else could it represent?
Such a Mythical Underworld Immortal Lotus, if one auctioned it at any city, it would possibly fetch a price of at least a few hundred thousand Low Grade Spiritual Stones, alluring countless cultivators to spectate the auction site.
That was because, such a Spirit Medicine was still useful even for Thought Division Stage cultivators and even Golden Pellet Stage and above.
Who would be simply contented, and feel their aptitude was sufficient?
Many powerful cultivators already desired greatly for all sorts of spirit medicines, ones that could elevate them to a cultivator possessing a Heavenly Spiritual Root……
But at this point in time, the more Wei Suo understood the value of the Spirit Medicines, the more he became depressed!
A treasure right under his eyes, yet he couldn’t do anything about it!
Previously, when he had taken a step forward, he had already tested that with his current cultivation, even if he used all the fire element artifacts he had, it would at most allow him to trudge forward for few dozen of steps. Anymore, he reckoned his true elemental energy, blood, and qi would be completely frozen and ultimately result in death. Yet even putting his life at stake, he still wouldn’t be able to reach the Mythical Underworld Immortal Lotus.
“Ah! Ah! Ah! This is killing me! Seeing yet unattainable! If only you had trained to Thought Division Stage 2 or 3, and with a Yang artifact, you would’ve been able to harvest that Mythical Underworld Immortal Lotus! This is a treasure that even tens of thousands of major sect disciples cannot see in a decades!”
“The Mythical Underworld Immortal Lotus requires a hundred years before it scarcely forms. If any major Sect members were to discover it this time, it will definitely be plundered from you. It is useless even if you come again ten years later when this valley reopens!”
The green robed Old Man was frustrated to the point of releasing unceasingly crazed yelling…….
“Your sister!” Wei Suo couldn’t resist employing Liu Sanbao’s curse.
The more the green robed Old Man shouted, the more frustrated he got.
But what else could he do?
Wei Suo grinded his teeth and took a few deep breaths, he firmly hardened his heart to stop peeping at the Mythical Underworld Immortal Lotus. Forcefully turning his head, he shunned away from this ultimate land of chilling yin. Then, he took a slow detour and passed through this pit, one that was a stunning Land of Extreme Chilling Yin……
After distancing from the Mythical Underworld Immortal Lotus for a few hundred meters, Wei Suo rotated his True Elemental Energy, and slowly dispersed the chill stored within his body.
However at this moment, Wei Suo suddenly froze entirely!
It was because near the place he started previously, right at the outskirts of this earthen pit, 2 cultivators had shockingly appeared!
The 2 Cultivators were enshrouded in black robes, and their faces could not be seen.
“What’s up?” The green robed Old Man, who was still complaining occasionally, realized the sudden change in Wei Suo. Based on the green robed Old Man’s current elemental energy, he could at most sense within a radius of around 165.5 meters. Beyond that, it was purely based on his Divine Sense, and he was akin to a blind man; not even comparable to the lowest grade Cultivator.
Wei Suo didn’t dare to even reply to the green robed Old Man softly, and only stood still, without a single movement as he activated his Secret Concealment Art……
This was because when he had stealthily used his Aura Determine Technique to sweep past the 2 black robe cultivators, one of them was at Heavenly Circuit Stage level 3, while the other couldn’t be determined. He could barely see a fiery light surrounding his body; evidently, he was minimally a frightening Heavenly Circuit Stage level 4 or 5 cultivator!
Moreover, right now, the 2 cultivators were seemingly here for the Mythical Underworld Immortal Lotus. Blatantly heading straight for where he passed through previously.
Within mere moments, the 2 cultivators who could cause Wei Suo to palpitate, were already less than 20 meters away from the pit where the Mythical Underworld Immortal Lotus grew.
That place, the place where Wei Suo felt a deathly chilliness to his bones. With every step he took, it required the full utilization of his True Elemental Energy……
“Indeed, this place contains a Mythical Underworld Immortal Lotus.” The cultivator with the higher cultivation stopped and heaved heavily. “The chilling yin climate of this area has exceeded my expectation, even if you consumed a Fire Essence Pellet, you might not be able to resist it.”
“I will definitely pluck this Mythical Underworld Immortal Lotus.” A peculiar and determined voice drifted from the mouth of the other Heavenly Circuit Stage 3 black robed cultivator.
A cold yet sweet voice; it was actually a female cultivator.
“What you’ve decided on, nobody can obstruct.” The black robed male cultivator silently nodded his head and said, “Since that’s the case, I will guarantee no one will enter the pit during this time, so try your best.”
The black robed female nodded.
Wei Suo witnessed the male black robed cultivator stretched out his hand, as four small black flags flew out from his hand… …
What gave Wei Suo cold sweat was that one of the tiny black flag with a silver cloud design flew over Wei Suo’s head, and landed within 15 metres from him. If the flag had struck him, he would’ve surely been discovered. By then, if they were to fight, he would surely be destroyed by the 2 cultivators whose cultivation had exceeded him vastly, so much so that it couldn’t be probed out.
Within seconds, the four tiny black flags released clumps of silverish black energy clouds, expectedly morphing into a tremendously thick giant shade. From the outside, it was completely impossible for one to view the contents regarding the two black robed cultivators and Wei Suo; and the same could be said for inside.
Wei Suo was panic-stricken as he deliberated; if the 2 cultivators were to notice me and silence me here, no one would see a thing from the outside.
What slightly comforted him was, after activating the four flags, the black robed male nodded towards the female and turned to head out of the black smokescreen… …
“Dugu Yu Yun”. At this moment, the black robed female cultivator suddenly called out, “If I fail to harvest this Mythical Underworld Immortal Lotus, just follow up on what I’ve arranged before, sell away all my properties and bring my junior sister away from Spirit Peak City.”
“Roger.” The black robed male slightly shook, “I only hope she will understand your efforts.”
“She will.” The black robed female’s cold and firm voice echoed over.
The black robed male took a last glance at her, without a word, he penetrated out of the smokescreen, and disappeared from Wei Suo’s vision.
“Hurry and leave, hurry and leave.” Wei Suo had originally hoped that nobody would discover the Mythical Underworld Immortal Lotus; but at this point, he just hoped both of them would hurry up and harvest this Mythical Underworld Immortal Lotus and leave. Best refraining from leaving him hanging. Of course, Wei Suo couldn’t jump out abruptly and raise a sign stating that he was just passing by, ‘you carry on with your busy affairs, I’ll take my leave first’. What if they were like the green robed youth, and were cold blooded killers. Then Wei Suo would be in grave trouble. These two cultivators were obviously stronger than the green robed youth by not just a level.
Hence Wei Suo had to stand completely still, observing without stirring any movements.
The black robed female stretched out her hand. Suddenly, she activated a bright yellow Jade pendant. It floated above her head, immediately forming a faint yellow light screen around her, filled with blazing Yang energy.
This Jade Pendant, was exactly what the Old Man had mentioned before, a Yang artifact that could block out some Chilling Yin Air.
It looked like the two cultivators were indeed prepared beforehand, and were here especially for the Mythical Underworld Immortal Lotus.
This female cultivator advanced further by several tens of steps; yet even with the faint yellow light screen, a layer of frost still condensed on her black robe, causing her to involuntarily shiver.
What came next was something that completely caught Wei Suo off guard.
The female cultivator retrieved a blazing red pellet, that was seemingly flowing with golden flames; sliding and swallowing it. At the same time, she slowly removed her black robe.
An astonishing, out of this world beautiful face appeared in Wei Suo eyes.
With beautiful hair flowing like a waterfall, elegant eyes and cherry lips, and snowy white skin, this girl was now clad in a simple violet palace dress. Despite that, her beauty was simply suffocating.
Moreover, over her ultimately perfect face, revealed a natural icy arrogance that could repel others a thousand li away; causing her to appear more noble and pure, as if she was a fairy that came from the heavens.
By this point, after removing the exterior black robe, she actually proceeded to slowly loosen her violet palace dress, and stripped it.
