However, when the two arrived at the mountain where Chen Chen was temporarily staying, they did not find him. It was only when they met the nearby disciples that they found out that “Tian Yun” had gone to visit Lian Yang early on, which surprised Sect Master Jin.
Mo Ying explained in a low voice, “Sect Master, Senior Tian Yun and Uncle-Master Lian were like old friends at first sight, and now they even call each other brothers. It’s understandable that he often goes to visit Uncle-Master Lian.
“If it weren’t for this, I wouldn’t have the face to ask him. After all… the price to ask him to explain isn’t small!”
Speaking up to this point, Mo Ying recalled all of his assets, and a hint of heartache flashed across his eyes.
“I see.” Sect Master Jin nodded slightly, and a pensive look flashed across his eyes.
A moment later, the two of them arrived at Lian Yang’s little house.
Surprisingly, compared to the weak Lian Yang from before, Lian Yang was much more energetic now. Even his hair had turned a lot darker. He was drinking with Tian Yun!
Sect Master Jin and Mo Ying looked at each other in disbelief.
It had only been a day. wasn’t Lian Yang’s recovery too fast?
Seeing Sect Master and his troublesome martial nephew’s shocked expressions, lian Yang explained helplessly, “Brother Zhang went to Yi city a few days ago and bought a lot of pills. Some of them increased my lifespan. Now that I’ve encountered such a thing, brother Zhang has taken out some similar pills for me.”
Sect Master Jin and Mo Ying were even more shocked when they heard this. As the saying goes, if you were to be solicitous for no reason, you were either evil or stealing.
Wasn’t Tian Yun too good to Lian Yang? Even if they were blood brothers, it shouldn’t be to this extent, right?
Chen Chen saw through the thoughts of the two of them. He smiled indifferently and said, “The two of you may not know this, but I often deduce the secrets of the heavens and will lose my lifespan from time to time. Therefore, I always keep similar medicinal pills by my side. Now, it’s just a coincidence.”
“Brother Lian is my good friend and he helped me refine a Dharma treasure. It’s fine if I don’t have such medicinal pills by my side, but since I have them, why would I be stingy?”
Chen Chen spoke righteously.
If one really wanted to get close to someone, one could only care about them moderately in the beginning. If one went beyond that limit, it would only arouse the vigilance of others.
As an experienced veteran, Chen Chen naturally understood this principle.
Now, it was even easier for him to tell such a lie. At the same time, he also managed to cover up the lie that he was an unworldly expert.
Actually, everyone would tell lies. However, there were very few who could completely cover it up.
When Lian Yang heard this, he was extremely touched. In fact, it was precisely because brother Zhang said that there was such a pill that he reluctantly accepted it.
If he really went to buy it for him, how could he be embarrassed? How could he have the cheek to do it?
“Fellow Daoist, you’re so righteous!”
Sect Master Jin praised him, and unknowingly, he also had a good impression of this guest elder.
At this time, Lian Yang seemed to have thought of something and said anxiously, “Senior Brother, is it possible that I can’t get 100 Spirit Crystals? If I can’t get it, I can actually refine some dharma treasures now.”
“No, no, it’s not possible! It’s just 100 Spirit Crystals.”
Sect Master Jin said as he scratched his big bald head. Seeing this scene, Lian Yang immediately smiled bitterly.
“Senior Brother, you can’t help but scratch your head when you lie.”
Sect Master Jin’s expression turned serious when he heard that and shook his head repeatedly, “Absolutely not! Absolutely not!”
Lian Yang did not look at him anymore, but looked at Mo Ying. A trace of pity flashed in Mo Ying’s eyes, and then he quickly turned his head.
Seeing this scene, Lian Yang suddenly laughed and said, “Senior Brother, I’ve committed such a mistake. What pride do I still care about? You don’t have to hide it from me. I won’t do anything stupid, and I won’t be unable to recover.
“I will take responsibility for what I’ve done wrong. If I can’t take responsibility in a short time, then I will take responsibility until I die.”
Lian Yang’s words were sonorous and forceful, and his eyes were even more resolute.
It had to be said that this person was a responsible person.
Seeing this, Sect Master Jin became more convinced. After hesitating for a moment, he told him about how the reputation of the Golden Saint Sect had been ruined and how their business had been greatly affected.
Even though Lian Yang was mentally prepared, he still couldn’t help but beat his chest and stomp his feet after hearing it. He blamed himself.
“Uncle-Master, we came here to look for Senior Tian Yun. Let’s see if he can point out a way for us…” Mo Ying looked at Chen Chen, and her eyes were full of a pleading gaze.
When Lian Yang heard this, he recalled Chen Chen’s amazing technique and immediately looked at Chen Chen. Then, with a plop, he actually knelt down.
“Brother Zhang, if you can point us in the right direction, my life will be yours from now on!”
When Chen Chen heard this, his brows twitched. Then, he faintly sighed and said, “Brother Lian, you can get up.”
At this moment, Sect Master Jin also bowed slightly and said, “Fellow Daoist, please lend a hand to our golden saint sect. If you can protect our golden saint sect, I am willing to acknowledge you as the Grand Supreme Guest Elder. From now on, you will be on equal footing with me!”
Chen Chen was speechless.
Grand Supreme Guest Elder? All he wanted to do was to refine artifacts.
However, this was indeed a good opportunity for him.
In the upper realm, artifacts were very important. As a future top expert, he needed a sect to forge artifacts for him. Only then would he be able to make a name for himself.
With this thought in mind, Chen Chen stood up and helped Lian Yang Up. He said in a very serious tone, “This matter is not easy, but it is not completely impossible.”
“Please speak, Fellow Daoist.” Sect Master Jin came over.
Chen Chen originally wanted to pretend to calculate and then pretend to lose his life, but he quickly gave up the idea.
After a moment of silence, he smiled and said, “How about this? My sect actually needs a large number of dharma treasures. How about I talk to my sect and ask some low-level disciples to purchase the dharma treasures of the Golden Saint Sect?”
“This…” Sect Master Jin’s expression froze, and the disappointment in his eyes disappeared.
A sect… was absolutely unable to satisfy the Golden Saint Sect’s needs.
There were so many artifact masters in the Golden Saint Sect. Even if they refined a dharma treasure every ten days, it would be enough to fully equip all the low-level disciples of a sect in just one month.
This method could only solve the urgent problem at most.
But even so, he was still very grateful to Tian Yun.
Persuading his own sect to come and buy the Golden Saint Sect’s dharma treasure required a lot of prestige and also a lot of responsibility.
Just as he was about to open his mouth to thank him, Chen Chen suddenly licked his lips and revealed a faint smile.
“There’s another treasure in my sect that consumes a lot of energy to refine. If the Golden Saint sect is willing to take this order and maintain the sect’s development in the next few years to provide for the disciples to cultivate, there should be no need to worry.”
Upon hearing this, Sect Master Jin and Lian Yang looked at each other in disbelief.
Just a single treasure could make the sect worry less for a few years. Did Tian Yun have no idea how many Spirit Stones a sect consumed in a year?
The list Lian Yang accepted from the Evil Fiend Hall disciple wasn’t small, but if converted into Spirit Stones, it would at most make Lian Yang worry less for a few years.
Compared to a sect, it was just a drop in the ocean.
“Uh, Fellow Daoist Tian Yun, your sect, is it refining immortal artifacts? Our Golden Saint Sect… doesn’t have the ability.”
Sect Master Jin scratched his head, looking a little embarrassed.
Chen Chen shook his head slightly and said softly, “You’ve forgotten that there is a material for refining artifacts in this world, and the price to refine a dharma treasure is unlimited…”
Upon hearing this, Sect Master Jin and Lian Yang were shocked. Their eyes flashed with astonishment, and then they cried out in unison!
“Omni Divine Gold?!”
