Only someone who had grasped the power of space could lay out a teleportation formation. A minor teleportation formation supported by other major formations could also be used to pierce through space and establish a connection between two places.
Xiang Shaoyun and the high priest wanted to establish a teleportation formation connecting the Ziling Sect and the angels. The distance between the two locations was incomparably far. It required a high-tier formation and a large amount of materials. None of the requirements to lay out a teleportation formation could be met easily.
For example, a Saint Realm formation grandmaster was very hard to find in tier-7 organizations. Generally, one could only be found among tier-8 organizations. Also, one would need to pay a terrifyingly high price to invite a Saint Realm formation grandmaster for the job.
With the Ziling Sect's current financial condition, they couldn't hire a Saint Realm formation grandmaster. One ought to remember that even after finding a formation grandmaster, one still needed to gather numerous rare materials.
Of the materials required, spatial stones were the rarest and most valuable. It wouldn't be an exaggeration to say that one might not be able to buy one even with spirit crystals. And to establish a connection crossing such a large distance, a large number of spatial stones were required.
Xiang Shaoyun frowned as he thought of all the requirements he needed to fulfill.
"Don't worry. Just wait for a few decades and you'll be a Saint yourself. At that time, gather enough materials and it will be easy to connect the two places," comforted the high priest.
Xiang Shaoyun sank into thought before asking, "If we can find a Saint Realm grandmaster, do you think we can complete the formation?"
"Getting a Saint Realm grandmaster is basically the same as getting the job half done. Then, we will only need to gather materials. Of course, those materials aren't easy to gather either. We angels have some of the materials, but I doubt it's enough. To know what exactly we need, we have to wait for the grandmaster's list."
"You're very thoughtful, high priest. I will handle it and try to lay out the formation as quickly as possible," said Xiang Shaoyun with a resolute look.
"We can't rush something like this. I will support you with all my strength," said the high priest.
With that promise, Xiang Shaoyun could finally be at ease. He then had the high priest retire to rest. They would talk further on a different day. He then went straight to Chen Zilong's residence. At this time, Chen Zilong was drinking alone in the courtyard, looking rather bleak.
"My sincere apologies for leaving you alone, my respected guest," said Xiang Shaoyun guiltily.
"How am I a respected guest? At most, I'm only an old friend," said Chen Zilong with a self-mocking smile.
Back when they were at the Cloud Margin Pavilion, his cultivation level was above Xiang Shaoyun's. Even so, Xiang Shaoyun's combat prowess had been comparable to his.
After many years, Xiang Shaoyun had greatly surpassed him in cultivation and had even become a young sect master. He was finding it hard to accept the contrast between the two. When he left the Cloud Margin Pavilion for the Dragon Society, his goal was to prove that he was not worse than Xiang Shaoyun, perhaps even better.
After entering the Dragon Ascension Realm, he had returned to the Cloud Margin Pavilion to flaunt his new cultivation level. Alas, when he returned, Xiang Shaoyun had long left.
"As an old friend, you are also a respected guest. It has been a while. You have advanced quite quickly in your cultivation," said Xiang Shaoyun with a smile.
Whatever the present situation was, back then, he had thought highly of Chen Zilong. He was of the opinion Chen Zilong was a decent person. Thus, when he saw Chen Zilong, he couldn't help but call out to him.
"I was trying to surpass you and court your sister. But I now find that the distance between us has only grown. This is quite depressing, if I'm being honest," said Chen Zilong with a sigh. Depressed, he took a sip from his liquor.
Like Xia Liuhui, when he first saw Ye Chaomu, he was completely charmed. He vowed to one day surpass Xiang Shaoyun and her, making her his woman. But now, the little bit of confidence he had was destroyed by the strength Xiang Shaoyun had demonstrated. One ought to know that he used to have a higher cultivation level than Xiang Shaoyun. Now, his cultivation level was lower.
"So that was what you have been scheming," said Xiang Shaoyun. Now that Ye Chaomu was his woman, he definitely didn't wish for other men to have any thoughts of her.
"I can't help it. Since I met her, I can't forget her. But I knew that the gap between us was too big. I have been cultivating hard so that I could one day be a qualified match for her. So where is she now?" asked Chen Zilong with a look of yearning.
Xiang Shaoyun replied, "She's not here. But you're really not a good match for her. She has an even higher cultivation level than me."
Xiang Shaoyun had decided that he had to thoroughly make Chen Zilong give up.
Chen Zilong smiled bitterly and said, "I knew it. She is not an ordinary woman. Looks like I need to work even harder if I want to catch up to her."
"It's good to work hard, but she already has a man. Just forget her," said Xiang Shaoyun with a heavier tone.
"Have you invited me to stay just so you can shatter my confidence?" asked Chen Zilong gloomily.
Xiang Shaoyun readjusted his tone and said, "Of course not. It has been years since we last met, so I wanted to have a good chat with you. I'm afraid I might have created some trouble for you by doing so."
"It's nothing. I'm already used to trouble," said Chen Zilong indifferently.
When Xiang Shaoyun saw the helpless and unreconciled look in Chen Zilong's eyes, he said, "Looks like you weren't happy at the Dragon Society, anyway. You might as well join the Ziling Sect. I can help you reach an even higher level of cultivation."
This was Xiang Shaoyun's actual goal. He wanted to recruit Chen Zilong. Chen Zilong was someone with the Qilin Arms technique and qilin blood flowing in his veins. His talent in cultivation was extremely high. He would definitely have a bright future. That much was evident from the fact that he was already at the Dragon Ascension Realm at his age. If someone like Chen Zilong remained in the Dragon Society, he would probably grow into a formidable opponent.
Chen Zilong narrowed his eyes and asked, "Do you look so highly upon me? Or do you only want to have me as a subordinate so you can feel good about yourself?"
Xiang Shaoyun smiled and said, "Haha, I do look highly upon you. I won't treat you as a subordinate. You're my brother. What do you think?"
"Hehe, you're not a simple young sect master. Even your words of recruitment are so enticing. Anyone else would have developed a fierce devotion for you after hearing your words," said Chen Zilong with a sneer.
"You think I'm lacking sincerity?" asked Xiang Shaoyun.
"Let's not talk about sincerity. Let's talk about what you can do. Can you really give me more resources to help me grow?" questioned Chen Zilong, his eyes burning with ambition.
"Of course. What we lack now is manpower. Someone as talented as you will definitely receive great help from us," said Xiang Shaoyun firmly.Previous Chapter Next Chapter
