“If only this is a set of Fire Cloud Treasured Clothes and not a Fire Phoenix Dudou, oh how great that would be!”
Inside a small house located in the city’s western district, Wei Suo howled in grief as he looked to the Fire Phoenix Dudou that he had washed clean. Fire Phoenix Dudous and Fire Cloud Treasured Clothes were very famous in the Heavenly Profound Continent. They were both things that the Silver Star City’s Fire Cloud Sect’s famous artifact craftsman Wei Huoling made. They were both made from Fire Silk, Cloud Embroidered Stone and Fire Phoenix Feather. The defensive ability of the Fire Cloud Treasured Clothes was more or less the same as the Fire Phoenix Dudou. The Fire Cloud and Fire Phoenix that they respectively emit, both possessed defense equivalent to level two defensive technique talismans. They were both capable of blocking a level one Heavenly Circuit Stage skill technique attack. Furthermore, as long as one possessed enough True Elemental Energy, after the Fire Cloud or Fire Phoenix wears out, one could once again instill True Elemental Energy into the Fire Cloud Treasured Clothes or the Fire Phoenix Dudou to send forth a new Fire Cloud or Fire Phoenix.
It was said that both the Fire Phoenix Dudou and the Fire Cloud Treasured Clothes were made through imitating the Magical Treasure Fire Unicorn Robe. They could both be considered as Imitation Magical Treasures.
The Single Horned Thunder Viper was likely capable of digesting even stones. However, the Fire Phoenix Dudou before Wei Suo appeared to be practically new. Each and every silk embroidery on it was emitting an enticing shine. On top of that, the Fire Phoenix Dudou was extremely soft to the touch. From this, one could tell how exceptional the materials used to create this Fire Phoenix Dudou was.
Thinking about the scene of this Fire Phoenix Dudou being worn by a great beauty like Shui Ling’er, Wei Suo began to violently gulp down his saliva.
If this sort of Fire Phoenix Dudou was brought to auction in the Golden Jade Pavilion, it would likely sell for at least a thousand Low Quality Spiritual Stones. Furthermore, this sort of item was also something that one might not be able to find to purchase even if one possessed the money. In the market place, they were extremely rare. Currently, what Wei Suo lacked the most was a powerful defensive skill technique and a defensive Magical Treasure. If he had a more powerful defensive artifact when he encountered the Single Horned Thunder Viper, he would not have to end up in such a sorry state. However, even if Wei Suo was to obtain a powerful defensive skill technique, with his current martial prowess of level three Divine Sea Stage, the defensive skill technique that he could cast would be inferior in power than even the Earth Shield Treasured Talisman that he had before. Thus, an Imitation Magical Treasure like the Fire Phoenix Dudou was extremely suited for his needs.
Unfortunately, the Fire Phoenix Dudou was a female undergarment clothing. The Fire Cloud Treasure Clothes was the male clothing. Wei Suo was an obvious man. If he was to wear such a sexy dudou underneath his clothes, it would truly be a bit too vile.
“Forget about it. With your current martial prowess, you should already thank the heavens that you survived against a level four mid-level demonic beast like the Single Horned Thunder Viper.” The green gowned old man who had grown accustomed to Wei Suo’s loud, vulgar laughter and howls of grief, looked to Wei Suo with a gaze of disapproval and said, “For you to be able to discover such a piece of clothing that could barely pass as a half Spirit Level Magical Treasure in the stomach of the Single Horned Thunder Viper, you’re already surprisingly lucky. Yet, you’re here being picky about it, howling in grief and all.”
Wei Suo thought about what the green gowned old man had said and agreed in his heart. Thus, he stopped his howls of grief and began to inspect the harvest that he made today.
From the Ten Thousand Serpents Valley, he managed to harvest six Ironthread Serpents, three Flesh Winged Scaled Serpents and a Single Horned Thunder Viper that almost took his life. When he returned to the Spirit Peak City, Wei Suo had sold all of them to the Golden Jade Pavilion. Due to the fact that the people from the Golden Jade Pavilion had thought him to be someone from the Iron Policy, they did not find it strange for a cultivator of Wei Suo’s level to bring over a level four demonic beast.
The six Ironthread Serpents only managed to sell for a total of ten Low Quality Spiritual Stones. The three Flesh Winged Scaled Serpents sold for a total of a hundred and fifty Low Quality Spiritual Stones. After Wei Suo carefully examined the Single Horned Thunder Viper and discovered that there were no other things inside of it, he sold it with its Demon Pellet for a total of two hundred fifty Low Quality Spiritual Stones. In total, Wei Suo had managed to sell his harvest for a total of four hundred and ten Low Quality Spiritual Stones.
Wei Suo began to count the amount of Fireball Talismans he had. He discovered that he had used several tens of Fireball Talismans in the Ten Thousand Serpents Valley. Currently, only eighty plus Fireball Talismans remained on him.
However, after taking into consideration of the cost of these Fireball Talismans, a level two Golden Bell Spiritual Talisman, the Cold Ice Talismans and various others items he used, Wei Suo had only managed to make a profit of three hundred and several tens of Low Quality Spiritual Stones. If he did not take into consideration of the Fire Phoenix Dudou that he luckily obtained, then he could also be considered as having struck a small pile of gold. With the guidance of an extremely old and experienced itinerant like the green gowned old man, it was likely that Wei Suo’s speed at earning Spiritual Stones was something that no cultivator of his level could compete against.
“Level four Divine Sea Stage, oh you evil thing!” After counting his Spiritual Stones like a miser, Wei Suo picked up a Mid Quality Spiritual Stones and prepared to begin his cultivation. After all, he had consumed his True Elemental Energy quite violently today. The effect of his cultivation ought to be pretty good. “What’s this?” However, right at this moment, a shining purple-red lump of something suddenly shined out from Wei Suo’s clothes.
“Nangong Yuqing seeks me? Why does she seek me at such a time?”
Subconsciously, Wei Suo felt that location in his clothes that was shining. However, he was immediately surprised. That was because the things that were emitting the purple-red light was exactly the three Transmission Jade Talismans given to him by Nangong Yuqing.
The sky outside was already pitch-black. However, after Wei Suo was surprised for a moment, he immediately stood up.
“What are you doing?” The green gowned old man immediately opened his eyes wide. That was because he discovered that Wei Suo was rapidly stripped off the cyan colored plain clothing that he wore, picked up the Fire Phoenix Dudou and was moving it around his body as if trying to figure out what was the most appropriate method for him to wear it.
“What else could I be doing? I’m wearing this. After all, I just so happened to be missing this sort of defensive Magical Treasure. If I was to wear this inside, no one can see it anyways.” Said Wei Suo while he began wearing the Fire Phoenix Dudou.
“Fuck, really you…” Seeing the dudou wearing Wei Suo, the green gowned old man grew completely speechless. In all these years that he had lived, he had never seen any man wearing such a sexy female cultivator’s undergarment. The green gowned old man had decided in his mind that if anyone was to ask him about Wei Suo in the future, he would definitely reply with saying that he didn’t know him. This was truly too shameful.
“Vulgar, truly vulgar.” Wei Suo who wore his cyan colored ordinary clothes back on and left the house, also felt that he was pretty vile. He also felt not used to wearing a silky smooth female cultivator’s dudou. However, once he thought about that or his life, he immediately determined that his life was more important. Wei Suo decided to thicken his skin and wear the female undergarment and then change to another one in the future when he found something more suitable.
Thinking that Nangong Yuqing must definitely have an important matter for her to seek out Wei Suo at such a time, Wei Suo rushed like the wind toward the meeting location that they had decided upon: the biggest bulletin board at the northern city district’s market.
“Selling high quality Lust Sea Relation Mending Pellets. They are capable of allowing you and your spouse to reach the peak climax where each wave of climax would be more intense than the previous…”
“Long term purchasing level three Devil Pellet for high price. Also selling all kinds of technique talismans. Reasonable price, cheating neither old nor young…”
“Due to urgently needing Spiritual Stones, thus I’m selling for cheap a skill technique book…”
All kinds of information was posted on the largest bulletin board at the city’s northern district. Wei Suo stood before the bulletin board and looked left and right. However, he was unable to find Nangong Yuqing at all.
“Is your surname Wei?” Just when Wei Suo was suspecting if Nangong Yuqing was flaking him, a seven or eight year old looking little girl wearing flower printed clothes who seemed to be from a shop around here, ran over to him and asked.
In a daze, Wei Suo looked to this little girl. “I am surnamed Wei, what about it?”
“In that case, what is your name?” This little girl who had a bunches hairstyle and a slightly runny nose asked in a very serious manner.
“My name is Wei Suo. Exactly what’s the matter?”
“Wei Suo, that should be correct.” The little girl immediately grew happy. She then complained. “What took you so long to come? I have already waited for you for a long time now now.”
“You’ve waited for me for a long time?” Wei Suo was struck dumb.
“That’s right.” The bunches hairstyle little girl gave Wei Suo a side eye. “A beautiful older sister asked me to wait for you here. She asked me to hand this to you. Who would’ve imagined that it would take you so long to come.”
Hearing what this bunches hairstyle snot-nosed little girl said, Wei Suo knew right away that it was definitely Nangong Yuqing who asked her to wait for him here. After Wei Suo received the little sheepskin scroll from the dissatisfied little girl and looked into it, he discovered that Nangong Yuqing said she needed to collect an item and wanted him to help her. It stated for him to go to the Sheep Bone Mountain’s Rock Maggot Karst Cave to meet up with her.
“It’s already night, yet she still wants to go and collect something?’
Looking at the little scroll that Nangong Yuqing had left for him, Wei Suo was unable to contain himself from muttering. Wei Suo also knew of the Sheep Bone Mountain. It was located a thousand and two hundred miles to the east of the Spirit Peak City. Due to the fact that the mountain stones at that place appeared like white colored sheep bones, the place ended up being called the Sheep Bone Mountain. Sheep Bone Mountain composed of a very large range of area. There was five or six mountain ranges. The Rock Maggot Karst Cave was a large karst cave in the southernmost mountain range of the Sheep Bone Mountain. There were underground rivers and stalactite in the karst cave. On top of that, there were a demonic beast that specialized on eating rotten flesh as food, the level two demonic beast Rock Maggots. The appearance of these Rock Maggots was like a silkworm that was enlarged several times. However, their skin was capable of petrification. When fighting against enemies, this sort of Rock Maggots’ original soft skin would turn similar to that of stalactite-like solution, forming a layer of rock on their surface. The Rock Maggots were also capable of spitting this sort of solution out of their mouths to solidify their enemies within this sort of rock-like shell.
“Entering a cave on top of that? Generally, it’s the male cultivators who are more interested in entering caves. Why would a great beauty like her go and try to enter such a filthy cave at such a late time?”
Going to the Sheep Bone Mountain’s Rock Maggot Karst Cave was not difficult. There was a conveying array in the Spirit Peak City that was connected directly to the Sheep Bone Mountain. For cultivators, the sight and judgement that they would have at night were all greatly limited. For many of the demonic beasts, on the other hand, would have much better eyesight and perception than the cultivators at night. On top of that, there were many demonic beasts that specialized in acting at night that would come out. Leaving the city at night was several times more dangerous than leaving it in the morning. This was also the reason why many cultivators were willing to pay Spiritual Stones so as to stay the night in the Spirit Peak City. For the interconnected caves, they were even more dark and gloomy. The situation at those location was even more complicated at night. After pondering for a moment in his heart, Wei Suo asked this bunches hairstyle little girl. “There are so many people passing by here. Why did you immediately came to me and ask if I am Wei Suo? How did you know that I am Wei Suo?”
“That beautiful older sister had told me about it.” The little girl took a glance at Wei Suo. “She said Wei Suo has a crew cut hairstyle and have a wretched appearance.”
“…” Wei Suo became speechless. He had nothing to say to this little girl. He rubbed his nose and immediately started to rapidly run toward the conveying array that connected the Spirit Peak City’s eastern city district with the Sheep Bone Mountain.
