“Fuck, I’ve been softhearted! It’s not easy to make that many Fireball Talismans.”
Seeing the back view of Nangong Yuqing who was walking away, Wei Suo howled in his heart.
However, although he was howling, Wei Suo who was a money grubber did not feel any regret in his heart. After watching Nangong Yuqing’s back view disappear from his sight, Wei Suo began to walk toward the northern city district.
In the Spirit Peak City, the more powerful and robust shops like the Golden Jade Pavilion were all gathered in the southern city district. As for the shops in the free market located in the northern city district, they were all small shops like the one owned by the Old Fox that Wei Suo frequently visited. However, the Heavenly Profound Continent had always had a notion of revering the north. Thus, this Spirit Peak City was also seated from north looking down on the south. Being built on a mountain, the highest region of the city was located in the northern city district. As for the peak, it was the Heaven’s First Sect’s monastery main gate where ordinary cultivators were not allowed in.
Furthermore, located above the free market of city’s northern district were cultivator dwellings that were many times better than Wei Suo’s little stone house in the western city district. In simpler terms, the western city district was the ghettos of Spirit Peak City. It was the place where low level cultivators would gather at. As for the northern city district, it was where high level cultivators gathered at.
As for the residences of the cultivators in the northern city district, the higher north they are, the better the building and environment they would be. Merely, the amount of Spiritual Stones required to rent such a place would also increase.
Currently, the most important matter for Wei Suo was concocting Heaven Mending Pellets. Having purchased fifteen Cyan Beetle’s Demon Pellets, Wei Suo had already gathered all of the materials needed to concoct Heaven Mending Pellets with. Merely, he still lacked one final thing to concoct Heaven Mending Pellets. That was, the Earth Fire Furnace.
For some high level cultivators, they would be able to drive specialized pellet furnaces to use when crafting artifacts or concocting pellets. For even higher level cultivators, if they were only concocting ordinary Pellet Medicine or making ordinary artifacts, they would even be able to use True Flame Skill Technique and use the True Flame to craft artifact or concoct Pellet Medicine. However, Wei Suo’s cultivation level was low and he didn’t know the True Flame Skill Technique. Thus, if he wanted to concoct the Heaven Mending Pellets, he must use an Earth Fire Furnace.
The reason why Wei Suo was currently walking toward the northern city district was because he wanted to find a new living place that had an Earth Fire Furnace built in.
Due to the fact that many areas in the northern city district were blocked off by several sects, when Wei Suo had gone to the northern city district in the past, he had only gone to the free market and not many other places. Thus, he only managed to find the location of the Heaven First Sect’s Soul Heart Hall that was in charge of renting out residences.
Wei Suo walked up a flight of limestone steps that did not have any sign before it. After he walked up the steps, he saw a two-storey tall hall. This hall had the same appearance as all of the other Heaven’s First Sect’s halls that contained their conveying arrays. It was also golden in color and appeared very imposing.
“Level three Divine Sea Stage? It seemed that they’re external disciples of the Heaven’s First Sect.”
Once he walked into the Soul Heart Hall, Wei Suo immediately saw two Heaven’s First Sect’s disciples wearing ordinary blue robes and several cultivators that wore different colored clothes but seemed to be together. Wei Suo inspected them with his Aura Determining Technique and discovered that only one of them, a middle aged cultivator who wore a Profound Iron Armor, was a level higher than him. He was a level five Divine Sea Stage cultivator. As for the rest, their cultivation levels were all about the same as his. Some were even a bit weaker. As for the two Heaven’s First Sect’s disciples in charge of receiving the guests, they were merely level three Divine Sea Stage.
Those cultivators were currently before a slightly fat and shot Heaven’s First Sect’s disciple and paying him Spiritual Stones. They seemed to have come here to rent a residence. Seeing Wei Suo’s arrival, the other Heaven’s First Sect disciple who had a pointed and slender face and appeared to be extremely sharp immediately walked over to Wei Suo. He asked, “May I ask what might have brought brother, you, to the Soul Heart Hall?”
Wei Suo knew that this sort of place was actually more or less the same as ordinary stores. Merely, for other stores, one would pay Spiritual Stones in exchange for technique talismans, Magical Treasures, Pellet Medicines and the like. However, for this place, one would exchange Spiritual Stones for a place to cultivate and live. Thus, Wei Suo bluntly said to the disciple, “I wish to find a residence with an Earth Fire Furnace.”
“A residence with an Earth Fire Furnace?” Once Wei Suo said those words, the gazes of all the other cultivators immediately and uniformly all landed on him. The amount of Spiritual Stones one would have to pay to rent a location with an Earth Fire Furnace was very considerable. A cultivator that could live in such a residence was most definitely no ordinary person. As for these couple cultivators, they could be considered to be doing pretty well. However, none of them were rich enough to live in a place with an Earth Fire Furnace.
“You wish to find a residence with an Earth Fire Furnace?” This pointed and slender faced sharp looking Heaven’s First Sect’s disciple also repeated what Wei Suo said in suspicion. After that, he immediately said, “Currently, there are a total of two residences with Earth Fire Furnace. The first residence comes with a Spirit Field that one could grow ordinary Spiritual Herbs at. The second residence does not come with a Spirit Field. As for the one that comes with a Spirit Field, it cost eighty Low Quality Spiritual Stones monthly. As for the one that does not come with a Spirit Field, it costs fifty Low Quality Spiritual Stones monthly. Which residence do you wish to rent?”
Wei Suo grew silent for a moment. He knew that having a Spirit Field was extremely useful. That was because he would be able to grow some Spiritual Herbs that he gathered in the Spirit Field. However, after considering that he did not have a lot of Spiritual Stones on him and that he did not have the ability nor the time to grow Spiritual Herbs, Wei Suo decided upon that fifty Low Quality Spiritual Stones a month residence that did not come with a Spirit Field.
“I’ll take that fifty Low Quality Spiritual Stones monthly residence.” However, right when Wei Suo was planning to speak, a deep and cold voice sounded from behind him.
A red robed and cunning looking middle aged skinny cultivator was standing not far behind Wei Suo.
“It’s him?” Wei Suo was slightly startled. This cunning looking middle aged skinny cultivator was the same one that he had seen in the auction. It was the cultivator who bidded for eight hundred Low Quality Spiritual Stones to buy the Silver Dipper Essence and then ended up giving up after fearing the consequences from a mysterious competitor from the second floor’s honored guest box.
“What, is there any complaint?” Seeing that Wei Suo was sizing him up, this red clothed cunning looking cultivator coldly glanced at Wei Suo. Suddenly, six lumps of red colored light shined in his body. Furthermore, the six lumps of light seemed to be connected together with threads of light. It seemed that the lights were flowing through each other unendingly. A powerful and deeply cold oppression immediately started to emit out from his body.
“A Heavenly Circuit Stage cultivator!” The expressions on all the other cultivators in the Soul Heart Hall immediately changed.
This extremely cunning and fierce looking red clothed skinny cultivator was evidently a level one Heavenly Circuit Stage cultivator. Furthermore, it was he who displayed his martial prowess. Thus, everyone present was able to tell his martial prowess.
“Senior.” The two Heaven’s First Sect’s disciples immediately displayed flattering and respectful expressions on their faces. The Heaven’s First Sect’s disciple who was receiving Wei Suo immediately said, “Senior, do you wish to rent the residence with the Earth Fire Furnace? If Senior wished to rent it, then there would naturally be no problem at all.” While he said that, this Heaven’s First Sect’s disciple would even occasionally glance at Wei Suo. It was clear that he was trying to tell Wei Suo, a low level cultivator, to be tactful and not to fight with the red clothed cultivator.
According to principle, since Wei Suo was the first one to come, if they were to really dispute over it and alarmed the people from the Heaven’s First Sect, this cheaper residence would be given to Wei Suo. However, this cunning and dangerous looking red clothed Heavenly Circuit Stage cultivator appeared like someone who might attack Wei Suo in the dark. With Wei Suo’s current strength, he was no match for such an individual. Furthermore, from the actions that this man displayed in the auction and his demand for the residence with the Earth Fire Furnace, this man appeared to be some cultivator who might know how to craft artifacts or even craft Flying Swords. Thus, his might would be several times stronger.
At this moment, faced with this Heaven Circuit Stage cultivator that he couldn’t afford to offend, Wei Suo could only bear the anger within his heart without saying anything. He merely urged in his heart that he must definitely give this guy a payback in the future.
Seeing Wei Suo’s appearance of keeping silent with his head down, this red clothed cunning and dangerous looking cultivator thought Wei Suo to be the same as the other cultivators and was afraid of him. Immediately, he laughed complacently. After he paid the fifty Low Quality Spiritual Stones, he received a jade slip that would allow him to enter into the residence and left the Soul Heart Hall.
“There’s one left, do you want it?” Once the red clothed cunning and dangerous looking cultivator left the place, the pointy faced sharp looking Heaven’s First Sect’s disciple immediately changed his expression and turned to ask Wei Suo.
“I do!” Since there was only a single residence left, Wei Suo naturally had no other choice but to take it. Without wasting any time, he took out eighty Low Quality Spiritual Stones and received the jade slip that allowed entrance into the residence from the other Heaven First Sect’s disciple. After he listened to the long-winded details about what to take note of in the residence from said disciple, he left the Soul Heart Palace without even bothering to look back.
Looking up ahead, those residences were all located among many trees and flowers. However, as he walked through the pathway and grew closer to these residences, Wei Suo discovered that a thick fog had filled the air. He was unable to see the houses within the forest before him.
Residences with Earth Fire Furnace and Spirit Field, they could be considered as being pretty decent in the northern city district. Wei Suo followed the mountain road and walked past four to five other houses before he arrived at his new residence.
Before him was a quiet forest filled with Spirit Fog. There was a white pebble road extending into his residence. Before the entrance was a black stele. On the stone stele carved an ancient character. Behind the stone stele was a number that corresponded with Wei Suo’s jade slip, ‘23.’
“If the residences constructed by the Heaven’s First Sect were separated into four different quality levels, Heaven, Earth, Profound and Spirit, like martial techniques, then I reckon that this sort of residence should be able to be ranked as a level two residence.”
Wei Suo was thinking like so. He then placed the jade slip that he held in his hand on the black stone stele. The black stone stele shined and then the Spirit Fog that covered the place all dissipated.
Once Wei Suo walked into his new residence, his mood immediately grew better. The unhappiness that he had from the red clothed cunning and dangerous looking cultivator had instantly disappeared.
It turned out that what was before Wei Suo’s eyes was a small ravine. Not only was there quite a bit of flowers and plants growing in the ravine, it also appeared to be extremely peaceful. Furthermore, there was a waterfall coming down from a cliff on the side. A several tens of feet deep clear pond was located below the waterfall. There were even some fish swimming about within the pond.
To the side of the clear pond was a small Spirit Field. Located alongside the mountain wall was a little courtyard.
This sort of place was many, many times better than Wei Suo’s previous residence, the little stone house that had nothing in it.
