The pond has dried up for who knows how many years? How could there be a fish in there?
Feng Feiyun wanted to scold the fruit for shouting and alerting the enemies. However, once he got there, he actually saw a silver fish hiding beneath a shimmering boulder.
It was only an inch long and had two heads. The scales were tiny yet exquisite - the same for its tail.
“This isn’t a fish, it’s a silver crescent water.” Feiyun used his heavenly gaze to see through the fish, becoming startled in the process.
This pond must have been filled with silver crescent water once. However, only a tiny bit of the water was left. If it were several decades later, nothing would be left.
The fish seemed to be able to hear him and tried to go below the sands.
“Uncle, it’s alive!” The fruit also entered the sands and came out with the fish a while later.
Feiyun took out a jade box and stored the fish inside. The fish suddenly turned into two drops of water afterward.
He put it away and said: “This is one of the seven-colored springs. They are capable of gestating saint-level alchemy ingredients but have been lost since antiquity. Who would have thought there would be two drops here?”
“Oh, I see, they’re extremely useful for Nirvana cultivators.” The fruit said.
Feiyun’s expression changed since he hadn't heard of this before. He hurriedly asked: “How do you know this?”
“I don’t know, I think I just know, or am I just guessing?” The fruit became confused.
A black line appeared on Feiyun’s forehead out of frustration.
“If you consider your body a sacred tree and use that water for gestation, it’ll be very helpful during the next rebirth. Remember, seven-colored springs represent life force.” It suddenly said.
“Who told you this?” Feiyun thought that this made sense.
“I don’t know, what a weird feeling…” The fruit became muddle-headed once more.
Feiyun frowned again and didn’t want to experiment just yet.
“Since there’s silver crescent water here, there might be more types in the other ponds, let’s hurry.” He felt someone coming over and wanted to run to the next pond.
“He’s over here!” A female genius spotted his shadow.
The girl had a delicate and tall figure with sapphire blue hair, wearing a layered white dress. A talisman with a blue glow was attached to her arm, allowing her to move quickly like a phantom.
She made it to the dried pond and didn’t see Feiyun.
“Oh? Where did he go?” Her gorgeous and shimmering eyes scouted the area but couldn’t see any sign of him.
“Looking for me?” His voice came from behind.
She immediately turned around and unleashed a palm strike, only to hit the air.
Suddenly, an aura appeared behind her and caught her off guard, putting her into the dried pond.
“You…” Her fair complexion became covered in mud and sand. Her long hair became disorderly and her nose was aching.
“You want to kill me too?” He posed with his spear and coldly uttered.
“Because you offended the young city lord.” She stood up and channeled energy, pushing off the dirty specks and becoming cool again.
“Xiao Tianyue? Haha, do you know how I offended him?” He wasn’t in a hurry to kill her just yet.
“I don’t know and don’t care, only that he wants to kill you so I want to kill you too. Plus, killing a lowly half-demon like you is the same as killing a servant.” Her eyes turned cold as her long hair fluttered to the wind.
He has grown used to dealing with these nobles and didn’t become angry. He smiled and said: “I took his concubine during their marriage ceremony.”
“So you’re the one who did it?” She became surprised.
“See, so you actually owe me one. Now there’s a spot for you to become his concubine.” He added.
“Shameless scum, what are you saying?! He’s my third uncle!” She became furious with fire in her eyes, feeling like her lungs were exploding.
“Oh, my bad, my bad.” He apologized right away like a gentleman.
“Wretched half-demon, always harboring dirty thoughts!” She gritted her teeth and summoned a long sword for a direct thrust.
She was actually stronger than the fourth-level demon he killed earlier. Despite her spirit energy being suppressed, she still managed to fight evenly against him.
The talisman on her arm was at the emergence level so it improved her physical strength. Each slash was destructive with energy waves leaving deep gaps on the surface of the pond.
“I rarely kill women, don’t force me.” Feiyun’s smile gradually disappeared as he became serious.
“I’ve never killed a half-demon, don’t force me.” She retorted while being astounded.
In the past, she thought that half-demons were weak and inferior to even slaves. On the other hand, this half-demon could compete with her. In fact, she would be losing without the help of the talisman.
They suddenly heard several gusts of wind. The demon experts heard the commotion and arrived - a total of five shadows brimming with strength.
“Boom!” Feiyun stopped wasting time and activated his beast physique, instantly sending her flying by pushing with his spear. She fell down the pond for the second time.
“Damn you, half-demon!” She got up and stomped her foot. Nonetheless, she knew that the demons were coming and attached a speed talisman on her long legs, becoming a phantom to escape.
Meanwhile, Feiyun made it to the next dried pond. The fruit has been waiting here with three little fish.
“Uncle, why are they red now?” It asked.
Feiyun put the three fish into a different box and said: “Crimson flame water, another type.”
He paused for a moment before asking: “Laoshi, these water types can really help the rebirth process?”
“Didn’t you have one earlier, you want to do it again?” It stared at Feiyun.
“I have no other choice, the enemies are too strong so I need to reach the next level to survive, no, to kill all of them.” He was confident in killing the girl earlier. However, her ace cards might cause serious injuries and that would be unacceptable given the perilous circumstances.
The cultivators here were all descendants of famous cultivators. The weakest was still the son of a domain lord. As for the demons, they were just as strong.
Thus, he needed to take the risk of gaining more power.
“You’re only at the early stage of the third level and haven’t consolidated yet, the probability of death for the fourth rebirth is 99.7%.” It responded.
“That’s a pretty exact number.” He stared at it.
“I’m just spewing bullshit.” The fruit became confused again, not knowing why it knew so much.
The fourth rebirth was far harder than the third. That’s why most died during this process.
For humans and cultivators, reaching the fourth level meant having a ticket to enter the realm of Heaven’s Emergence.
Of course, this ticket didn’t mean having a free entry. Some still died afterward.
“I’m not saying I want to reach the fourth level right now.” He knew how serious it was. One wrong step would result in certain death. Even a reincarnated saint wouldn’t carelessly do this.
“What do you mean then?” The fruit asked.
“Take me to the most dangerous place in Undying Hall. I have a method to reach the peak stage.” He responded.
“The most dangerous? It should have the highest aura of the saint, I think that’s where my grandpa is too.” The fruit’s spiritual awareness was incredible.
It began leading him towards that direction - the place where the saint used to meditate.Previous Chapter Next Chapter
