Chapter 94: Sky Valley, Divine Peach Jade
A hundred Golden Spirit Pellets, two hundred Cyan Beetle Demon Pellets!
Even the tanned assistant had a drastic change in expression.
“What a joke!” That wealthy male cultivator couldn’t stand this ridiculous turn of events. “Even the Golden Jade Pavilion and the Precious Treasure Pavilion wouldn’t be able to produce such a ridiculous amount of Cyan Beetle Demon Pellets at one go. You must have calculated this shop wouldn’t store such a massive amount to be able to spout such rubbish.”
“Exactly so, a hundred Golden Spirit Pellets would require at least over ten thousand low quality spiritual stones; in addition to so many Cyan Beetle Demon Pellet, do you even have that much spiritual stones?” The busty woman sneered.
“Hmm, is that so?” Wei Suo leisurely fished out a pouch from his Treasure Receiving Pocket.
“Wahh!” The busty female gasped in shocked as her jaw dropped, instantly choking on her previous words. Even the wealthy male and the shop assistants were dumbstruck.
Within Wei Suo’s pouch, stored purely white high quality spiritual stones. A whole pouch of them, totalling at least 300!
300 high quality spiritual stones, that was equivalent to over 30,000 low quality spiritual stones.
“Why?” Wei Suo teased. “Is it possible this isn’t enough to buy a hundred Golden Spirit Pellets and 200 Cyan Beetle Demon Pellets?”
“No-no, that’s enough, more than enough.” The jug-eared assistant fought back the shock as he aggressively nodded; wiping away a layer of sweat on his forehead. “Such a massive amount, I’m afraid our Nine Peaks shop isn’t able to produce it.”
“HAHA, a hundred Golden Spirit Pellets, 200 Cyan Beetle Demon Pellets, so refreshing indeed! Wei Suo, so many Golden Spirit Pellets and Cyan Beetle demon pellets is enough for you to breakthrough to the Heavenly Circuit stage. Your Purple Mystique True Technique can also rise by another level.” The old man ecstatically erupted with laughter.
Wei Suo gazed at the jug-eared assistant. “How long do you all need to gather everything?”
“I’m unable to decide, I’m afraid senior you have to meet our shopowner to decide.” That jug-eared assistant fearfully and sincerely replied, even changing his greetings to senior.
“That’s fine.” Wei Suo nodded. “Anyway, I have other matters to find your Master Mu.”
“Senior, please follow me.” The assistant swung his head round, disregarding the couple as he led Wei Suo ahead.
An awkward expression forged onto the female and male cultivator’s face, they were unable to offer a single word. Even the female cultivator no long pasted herself onto the male.
Wei Suo completely ignored the two as he followed the assistant. Before the two entered, he had already probed with his aura determining technique. That male only had the cultivation of a Divine Sea stage level 5, and that busty female was only at level 4. In addition to their reaction, Wei Suo could confirm they weren’t wealthy overlords, and their background probably wasn’t great either.
The jug-eared assistant led Wei Suo to the Nine Peak’s backyard. It was like he suddenly made a resolution as he halted abruptly, retrieving something from his bosom and handed over to Wei Suo.
“What’s this?” Wei Suo was slightly confused. The assistant had handed to him a half palm sized peach-red colored rock. It wasn’t heavy, but its texture was exceptionally sleep, as though it had been dipped in oil.
“This is the Divine Peach Jade.” The assistant offered, while feeling his heartache. “It can protect the cultivator when entering the Sky Valley. You’ll be able to enter the Sky Valley soon. I was already prepared to use this Divine Peach Jade to try my luck within the Sky Valley. Since I’ve offended senior previously, I hope Senior can be magnanimous and not mind this blind junior. This jade is for senior, I hope senior can put in some good words for me to the shop owner.”
“Divine Peach Jade?” Wei Suo was rather moved.
Wei Suo reckoned this shop assistant was worried he may report to the shop owner, and he would have to bear the consequences. Thus, he wanted to mend the pen after the sheeps were lost, and made amends to Wei Suo. But this Divine Peach Jade and Sky Valley, indeed had a huge history.
The Sky Valley was a mountain valley at the Sky dome, within it grew countless rare spirit medicines. From the south side of Spirit Peak city, going from Wei Suo’s Cyan Wind Mound; taking into account Wei Suo’s current speed, he probably could reach within half a day. There were even records of that mountain valley in Spirit Peak City.
But occasionally, highly toxic fumes would envelope that mountain region; even a Divine Light screen wouldn’t be able to block off the Five-colored Venom Miasma. Cultivators would die upon interaction, this thick poison is even heaven defying. Even formidable antidote spirit pellets would be unable to make a difference, not to mention gathering other spirit medicines.
Only within a short time frame every 10 years, would the Five-colored Venom Miasma disperse completely. Cultivators and demonic beasts would then be allowed access. However, within the Sky Valley, corrupt aurora beams would randomly strike many regions. Those cultivators who were struck by these auroras, would instantly disintegrate.
Therefore, whenever the poison fumes dispersed every 10 years, there would be a massive stream of cultivators and demonic beasts entering. But, many would perish within.
Later on, a cultivator discovered this so-called Divine Peach Jade, it could repel the surrounding corrupt aurora beams, and allow the cultivator to enter those corrupted regions. But these Divine Peach Jade were exceedingly rare. Every time the Five-colored venom miasma disperses, most cultivators trying their luck wouldn’t be in possession of one. Wei Suo had heard of the Sky Valley before, yet he hadn’t thought of attempting his luck over there. He hadn’t concerned himself with even entering in the future, and didn’t come across this Divine Peach Jade before.
“Kid, this is definitely a genuine Divine Peach Jade. But that Sky Valley? I haven’t heard of that before. It should be a new place one of the later cultivators discovered.” The old man communicated to him, naturally he was extremely well-versed in this Divine Peach Jade.
“When will the Five-colored Venom Miasma completely disperse, when can I enter?” Wei Suo emotionlessly accepted the Divine Peach Jade as he asked.
Witnessing Wei Suo accepting his jade, the jug-eared assistant became solemn and earnestly replied, “According to this junior’s information, it should be roughly half a month later before entering.” After pausing a moment, the jug-eared assistant immediately switched to his flatteries. “In view of senior’s cultivation, you’ll definitely reap huge benefits there.”
Wei Suo’s lips secretly curled up; underneath the assistant’s glib tongue, his heart was definitely wishing Wei Suo would perish within the Sky Valley. Yet he astutely accepted it, half a month later, if his cultivation managed to break through to the Heaven Circuit Stage, and his Purple Mystique True Technique would improve by another level; then he might really try his luck at the Sky Valley. Hence, he secretly curled his lips and nodded. “Since you’ve gifted me such a valuable object, I naturally wouldn’t report you to your Master, I’ll even add in some good words.”
“Many thanks to Senior!” The jug-eared assistant turned delighted, as he continued to lead Wei Suo to a room at the backyard. He announced loudly, “Master, this senior has brought a huge business to our Nine Peaks shop. I am unable to make any calls, so I’ve brought him here. Also, he has other matters to consult Master.”
“Hmm, is that so? Then hurry up and invite him in.” A warm voice drifted out of the room.
“An expert at the Heavenly Circuit Stage level 1.”
As Wei Suo entered the room, he realized Murong Chen appeared to be a scholarly looking middle aged male, wearing a blue garment. Yet his gaze looked experienced; there was no way he was just 30 – 40 years old, probably using some sort of Facelock technique. After he probed with his aura determining technique, Wei Suo was extremely amazed at the cultivation level of this master blacksmith who was pretty renowned in Spirit Peak City.
“This one here is the owner, Murong Chen. May I know how to address this young one? I heard you have matters to find me?” Murong Chen swept a look across Wei Suo, as he politely greeted him.
“This one is surnamed Li.” Wei Suo conjured up a fake name. “I wish to purchase 100 Golden Spirit Pellets and 200 Cyan Beetle Demon Pellets from the shop owner.”
“So many Golden Spirit Pellets and Cyan Beetle Demon Pellets?” Murong Chen exposed a hard to believe expression, but his professionalism prevented him from asking Wei Suo his reasons. He only gazed at Wei Suo. “Such a huge amount, it is indeed hard for our Nine Peaks to produce it at one go.”
Wei Suo asked, “Then how many are you able to provide, and when is the latest you can gather everything?”
“I guess we could amass 70 Golden Spirit Pellets. As for the Cyan Beetle demon pellets, i’m afraid we only have 60, but it isn’t hard to find them; we should be able to gather them within latest 3 days.” Murong Chen straightforwardly offered. “Every Golden Spirit Pellet is 110 low quality spiritual stones, and the Cyan Beetle Demon Pellet is 50 spiritual stones. Since our Li brother is so generous, we can offer a slight discount. For such a huge quantity of 200, I have to find other ways to amass it. Therefore, I can only offer you at most 55 low quality spiritual stones per pellet, what do you think brother Li?”
“No problem.” Wei Suo nodded. “I’ll buy whatever pellets you have now first, as for the rest, let’s follow according to your Nine Peaks’ regulation and I’ll place a down payment. When you’ve gathered everything, I’ll come back to buy them.”
Murong Chen glanced at Wei Suo with a complicated look. “Brother Li, these two items can be easily bought as well. Perhaps it is for other matters that you’ve come to our Nine Peaks shop?”
“Yes, indeed I have other matters to consult with you.” Wei Suo glanced at the jug-eared assistant beside. “But it’s better if less people knows about this.”
Murong Chen nodded as he ordered his shop assistant. “Go off first, and prepare the Golden Spirit Pellets and Cyan Beetle Demon Pellets that we have.”
The jug-eared assistant respectfully offered his farewells before leaving.
But when he walked out into the backyard, the jug-eared assistant frustratedly spat onto the ground. “What rotten luck! If I didn’t manage to obtain 2 Divine Peach Jade from that old bumpkin, I would’ve made a huge loss today. You clearly possess so many spiritual stones, yet you wear like a beggar, causing me to be tricked. Let’s see if your luck is good when you go to the Sky Valley. But if your luck runs out and get into danger, your daddy here will surely add to your misery!”
If Wei Suo had heard this assistant’s words, he would’ve definitely cursed unrestrainedly at him.
Actually, the reason for him being afraid of Wei Suo telling on him, was because he was normally a dirty shop assistant. Apart from his fixed salary of spiritual stones, he would also seize the opportunity to trick inexperienced customers. During their transactions, he would purposely raise the prices for his own benefits, in this manner, his salary would normally vastly exceed the fix salary.
If Murong Chen fired him, with his level 4 Divine Sea stage cultivation, he wouldn’t be able to find such a lucrative job elsewhere. He was rotten to the core, and even managed to get his hands on two Divine Peach Jades. In his heart, he definitely had the intentions of going over to the Sky Valley to attempt his luck.
