Ever since he thought of the Samadhi Dao Fire of the immortal, Buddhist and fiend, Su Zimo had already begun to cultivate in that direction and comprehend it.
Although the Scarlet Flame Heart Sutra was an immortal sect cultivation technique, the first thing Su Zimo comprehended was the Dao fire of Buddhism.
That was only logical.
The black-haired Essence Spirit was infused with the sacred item of the Buddhist monasteries, the Saraca Flower.
As for the Saraca Flower, it was a flower of flames to begin with.
Coupled with the fact that Su Zimo cultivated the top cultivation techniques of the Buddhist monasteries, be it the Mystic Dharmic Lotus Sutra or the Great Day Rulai Sutra, they were all supreme secret manuals of the Buddhist monasteries.
At the bottom of the Dragon Burial Valley, Su Zimo comprehended Zen and chanted sutras for 20 years, accumulating a solid foundation.
It was only logical that he could condense a Buddhist Dao fire.
The scene that Nangong Ling and the other two saw was only Su Zimo exchanging blows with Wu Yuan. With a casual flick of his finger, the Dao fire of the Buddhist monasteries was formed and it looked casual.
What the three of them could not see was a black-haired Essence Spirit chanting sutras in Su Zimo’s consciousness.
The illusory image of a great Buddha appeared and the sound of Sanskrit filled the air. It was vast and sacred, lasting and deafening!
The black-haired Essence Spirit had already deduced the immortal sect’s cultivation technique to its limits before condensing that golden Buddhist Dao fire.
The Hellfire that Wu Yuan cultivated leaned towards sinister darkness.
Legend has it that the Hellfire originated from the sinister purgatory beneath the Nine Hells!
It was truly difficult to tell who would be the victor if an Immortal Dao Fire was used to fight the Hellfire.
On the other hand, the Dao fire of the Buddhist monasteries was sacred and flawless. It was vast and could suppress the Nine Hells and transcend the netherworld. It was a natural counter to the Hellfire!
Therefore, the moment the Hellfire and Buddhist Dao fire clashed, the Hellfire was suppressed!
While chatting idly with Ru Xuan, the four of them arrived at Hundred Refinement Sect unknowingly.
At the entrance stood a gigantic tripod that was dozens of feet tall. It looked majestic and magnificent!
Su Zimo’s group of four arrived at the entrance of the mountain and looked up at the gigantic tripod. All of them could feel how insignificant they were.
There were many Hundred Refinement Sect cultivators guarding the entrance. Most of them were at Foundation Establishment realm and there were even two or three Golden Cores.
When they saw Nangong Ling and the other two, the cultivators revealed respectful expressions and greeted them with cupped fists.
“Greetings, Senior Brother Nangong, Senior Sister Liu and Senior Sister Ru Xuan.”
“Seniors, you have returned. How was your trip?”
Ru Xuan chattered like a child in front of Su Zimo.
However, in front of these sect disciples, she was still more normal and restrained.
“You guys can leave. There’s nothing much.”
Ru Xuan put on the airs of a senior sister and waved her sleeves with an indifferent expression.
One of the Golden Cores glanced at Su Zimo curiously and asked instinctively, “Fellow Daoist, you are…”
Liu Hanyan and Ru Xuan did not react much.
However, Nangong Ling looked embarrassed.
He was already extremely unwilling to acknowledge Su Zimo as his Uncle-Master to begin with and was even more afraid that others would know about it.
Nangong Ling’s face darkened when he heard that person’s question and snapped, “Why are you asking so much? Go back and guard the sect properly!”
The person was lambasted for nothing and had a confused expression, not knowing what mistake he had made.
When Nangong Ling saw that the person was not leaving, he glared and said coldly, “Why? Do I even have to inform you about somebody I brought back?”
The person shrank his neck and retreated hurriedly.
Su Zimo found it funny and did not interfere.
After the four of them entered the Hundred Refinement Sect, Nangong Ling was afraid that he would meet someone he knew and ask him the same question. Therefore, he found an excuse and fled far away.
With the accompaniment Liu Hanyan and Ru Xuan, the three of them traveled smoothly.
However, during this period of time, many cultivators looked over with envious gazes.
Hundred Refinement Sect was unlike Elixir Yang Sect or Thousand Crane Sect.
Hundred Refinement Sect specialized in weapon refinement and they had to go through a lot of tempering. As such, most of the people in the sect were men and there were very few women.
However, Liu Hanyan and Ru Xuan were rare beauties.
Be it the junior or senior brothers, many of them admired the both of them.
When they saw the two of them accompanying a burly man to tour the sect, everyone felt like they were looking at a bull trampling on peonies.
“Who is that?!”
“I’ve never seen him before. He looks unfamiliar.”
“I don’t know why, but I feel like beating him up just by looking at him!”
Although their discussions were soft, Su Zimo heard them clearly.
He merely smiled indifferently.
He had already completed his mission by sending Dao Lord Extreme Fire safely.
Three months later, he would be attending the Thousand Crane Tea Banquet and would not be able to stay in Hundred Refinement Sect for long.
Even if people were dissatisfied, there would be no conflict.
It was no wonder why Hundred Refinement Sect was a major sect with a long history – its foundation far surpassed Ethereal Peak!
Immortal mountains towered within the sect and green water surrounded them. The buildings were grand and ancient.
Every single tile and brick was made with extreme precision and could be considered as divine workmanship.
Within the sect, there were all sorts of buildings that gave off a metallic feel.
Liu Hanyan and Ru Xuan brought Su Zimo to circle around before settling down in a cave abode.
For the following period of time, Su Zimo rarely left his cave abode.
He merely took out the Heaven Slaying Sword Art and tried to comprehend it daily.
This sword art was not to be underestimated. If he could comprehend it as soon as possible, it would be a huge boost to his combat strength!
Although he rarely left his cave abode, Liu Hanyan and Ru Xuan visited him frequently.
Su Zimo could sense that the two women were extremely curious about him.
Only, Ru Xuan’s curiosity was fully expressed upfront.
However, Liu Hanyan kept it in her heart in secret.
During this period of time, through casual chats with the two women, Su Zimo deduced that Hundred Refinement Sect had done everything they could to prepare for Dao Lord Extreme Fire’s reconstruction of his body.
According to the two women, many experts of the sect came out of seclusion during this period of time. From Void Reversion Dao Beings to Dharma Characteristic Dao Lords, there were often experts of the sect who went out to collect top-grade materials.
In fact, the two of even heard that Conjoint Body Mighty Figures of the sect had appeared, but they did not know the reason why.
Experts of Hundred Refinement Sect also made frequent major moves and took action in the major trading workshops and auction houses, spending huge amounts of money to purchase some rare materials.
There were also cultivators from Elixir Yang Sect who purchased large amounts of spirit liquids and elixirs.
Dao Lord Extreme Fire’s return was still a secret.
At the very least, Liu Hanyan and Ru Xuan did not know the reason.
Dao Lord Extreme Fire was only an expert at the Dharma Characteristic realm. However, Su Zimo had not expected that the former’s return 5,000 years later would be valued so highly by the sect!
Even Conjoint Body Mighty Figures of the sect came forth for him.
This was the first time Su Zimo realized that Dao Lord Extreme Fire was far from simple.
He was happy for Dao Lord Extreme Fire and worried at the same time.
The stronger Dao Lord Extreme Fire was, the more the news must not be leaked.
That was because if anyone heard that Dao Lord Extreme Fire had revived, they would definitely be plotting something!
Not everyone hoped for Dao Lord Extreme Fire to be alive!
Three months later was the Thousand Crane Tea Banquet and a fight for weapon refinement. It was as though everything was happening at the same time.
Although the cultivation world was still rather peaceful right now, Su Zimo could sense that a storm was brewing!
