Chapter 122: Progress in Cultivation

Be it the First Prince's residence that was busy with visitors, the Second Prince's residence that was waiting for an opportunity to make a move, or the Third Prince's residence that had a surging undercurrent… None of them seemed related to Bai Luochu.

Throughout the entire day, other than stopping for lunch and dinner, Bai Luochu didn’t stop cultivating. The spiritual energy in her body was circulating rapidly as they constantly grew more robust. The circulation speed of the spiritual energy was getting faster and faster. As time went by, it seemed to have turned corporeal. As she cultivated, Bai Luochu became able to cover her entire body with her spiritual energy to form an indestructible protective shell.

The current Bai Luochu didn’t know of the changes with her body as she was focused on her cultivation. The fastest way to cultivate spiritual energy was to draw the spirit sense from her body and allow it to roam the heaven and earth. Her spirit sense would strengthen due to the constant usage and her spiritual energy would increase proportionally.

Bai Luochu’s spirit sense was currently shuttling back and forth between the vast sea of stars as she constantly strengthened her spiritual energy. As time slowly passed by, Bai Luochu became more energetic. Right now, her spirit sense was traveling at the limit and Bai Luochu was waiting for a chance to break through.

Finally, when Bai Luochu’s spirit sense returned after roaming heaven and earth, she welcomed the progression of her spiritual energy. Bai Luochu was delighted and immediately withdrew her spirit sense. During this process, she felt a slight burning pain and she was suspicious in her heart. The instant she opened her eyes, she understood the reason.

When Bai Luochu opened her eyes and looked outside the window, she realized that it was already dawn. The burning pain earlier must have been due to the rising sun. She was silently rejoicing in her decision to withdraw her spirit sense. If she didn’t she might even suffer an injury.

Bai Luochu closed her eyes and checked the spiritual energy within her body. She noticed that it would be extremely easy for her to set up a contract with the Green Flame Eagle with her current spiritual energy. In the next instant, she stopped cultivating crazily. She had been busy with cultivation for half a month and it was time to take a good rest. Today, she had to make some arrangements for the new location of the Palace of Brilliance Resurgence and she would waste a lot of mental energy talking to those brutes under Ying Lan. Her current plan was to eat a good breakfast before coming up with a rough plan. She would then start to discuss the matter with the members of the Palace of Brilliance Resurgence.

“Mistress, are you awake?” Before Bai Luochu could tidy up her clothes, she heard Cai Ling’s voice at the door.

Bai Luochu quickly straightened the creases on her clothes and responded to Cai Ling, “Come in. I am done tidying up.”

As soon as Cai Ling entered, she placed Bai Luochu’s breakfast down on the table and walked over to help Bai Luochu to freshen up. She was shocked when she looked at Bai Luochu’s current appearance.

She quickly asked with concern, “Mistress, what’s wrong! Why do you look so pale? Are you ill?”

Bai Luochu’s spirit qi level wasn’t high enough and even though she was energetic after cultivating for an entire night, her physical body was extremely tired. Her complexion wasn’t great.

Bai Luochu turned to look at the bronze mirror and saw that her face was indeed ghastly pale and terrifying. She explained, “Nothing is wrong with me. I immersed myself too deeply in cultivation and forgot about the time. My body is currently exhausted but my mind is sober. I won’t be affected during the conference.”

“Mistress, you should know that this servant isn’t questioning Mistress’ well being because of the conference. Even if Mistress is doing this to strengthen yourself, you still have to take care of your body.” When Cai Ling saw how Bai Luochu was ignoring her well being, Cai Ling started to nag.

Bai Luochu felt that Cai Ling was turning into a second Ying Lan and she quickly made fun of the little servant girl. “I know. I’m afraid that all of you will be too worried for me. I know my limits... there is no need to worry about me.”

After finishing breakfast, Bai Luochu laid down on the couch and took a short rest. Seeing that it was already 8am, Cai Ling quickly entered the room to wake Bai Luochu up. Bai Luochu then wore her mask and led the members out of the city.

She even encountered the silver-haired man who was walking slowly on the street. When Bai Luochu saw the man, she quickly went over and asked, “Are you going with us as well? Ying Lan actually agreed to your request... That is truly amazing.”

Bai Luochu understood a thing or two about Ying Lan’s character. With his cautious personality, he wouldn’t allow strangers to approach them easily. What kind of drug did this silver-haired man feed Ying Lan to gain Ying Lan’s trust?

When the silver-haired man heard Bai Luochu calling out to him, he didn’t appear overly passionate, he merely stopped and bowed to Bai Luochu. Before Bai Luochu could return the greeting, he turned away and walked towards the direction of the Palace of Brilliance Resurgence.

When Bai Luochu saw how the silver-haired man was acting, she felt sorry for Ying Lan as he had to interact with such a person. His temper was just like a smelly rock in the latrine. It was extremely smelly and hard.

Of course, this was just Bai Luochu’s dissent and she wouldn’t voice it out. Bai Luochu rushed over to the Palace of Brilliance Resurgence.

As soon as she reached the foot of the mountain, she saw Ying Lan waiting for them.

“Mistress, you have arrived. Everyone is waiting in the main hall.” Ying Lan bowed and spoke respectfully to Bai Luochu.

Bai Luochu looked around and said to Ying Lan, “Why are there no guards at the foot of the mountain?”

“Ying Lan is inconsiderate. This mountain is excessively huge and our Palace of Brilliance Resurgence doesn’t have enough members. We are incapable of guarding this mountain for now.”

Bai Luochu muttered for a moment and said to Ying Lan, “Since that is the case, we will head over to the conference before dealing with the matter. After making our plans, I will set up a poison array to protect our Palace of Brilliance Resurgence.”

“Yes. Mistress, this way please.” Ying Lan nodded and made a gesture for Bai Luochu to move first. After Bai Luochu walked several steps, Ying Lan followed behind her. He maintained a distance of five steps from her in order to show his respect for Bai Luochu. However, it was enough for him to protect his mistress in case anything happened. 

After reaching the main hall of the Palace of Brilliance Resurgence, Bai Luochu noticed that everyone was already waiting for her. The silver-haired man was present as well.

Bai Luochu immediately felt that she was lacking in manners and cupped her first as an expression of apology,
