Half an hour later, Chen Chen helped Zhao Xiaoya to the bed.
At this moment, the ethereality in her body had returned to being calm. Although she did not succeed in breaking through to the middle stage of the foundation building realm, her cultivation was preserved.
Looking at Zhao Xiaoya, who was staring straight at him from the bed, Chen Chen behaved like a decent gentleman.
“I have already informed your grandfather; he will be here soon. I still have something to do, so I gotta get going.”
“Senior Brother Chen Chen, wait…”
“Thank you for saving my life, Senior Brother…”
“You don’t need to thank me. I was just passing by. Goodbye!”
After saying that, Chen Chen walked out.
However, he was secretly sighing.
Having lived through two lifetimes, he naturally had some understanding of women. Generally, if a woman suddenly began to speak in a higher pitched voice, it basically meant that she had developed an interest.
Besides, Zhao Xiaoya’s voice was extremely coquettish. Previously, she gifted him a special red ginseng too. That meant that she was already interested in him!
‘Horrible! I’m only 16 years old but I’m already irresistibly charming. What’s going to happen when I turn 20?’ Chen Chen thought to himself helplessly before quickly leaving the courtyard.
He had no idea that Zhao Xiaoya only snapped back to her senses a long time after he left.
Recalling what had just happened, she found it a little dreamy.
At this moment, her obsession with the Tianyun Divine Thunder Technique had been completely eradicated as a new obsession appeared in her mind.
“I can’t practice the Tianyun Divine Thunder Technique, but it’s the same if my man practices it… I must win the heart of this man!”
After Chen Chen left the Heavenly Sword Peak, he inexplicably shivered, carefully looking around. He then quickly sped towards the Heavenly Tranquil Peak.
After meeting up with Zhang Ji, the two arrived at the foot of the main peak.
Hu Xian’er was very dutiful, still guarding the place at this time. There were also several spirit birds lying beside her, which she had caught at some point in time.
“Rest and recuperate here tonight. Have some food. I feel a little cold,” Chen Chen said to everyone.
The silence lasted all the way to the next day.
Chen Chen woke up from meditation and looked at Zhang Ji, who was still meditating at the side, the light in his eyes flickering slightly.
“Brother, the Heavenly Elixir Peak’s Alchemy Elder has offended me and I want to give him a warning!”
“Huh? Elder!” Zhang Ji had a look of dismay on his face as he couldn’t help Chen Chen warn the elder.
To his astonishment, Chen Chen suddenly took out a fallopia multiflora and placed it in his hand.
“Brother, when the time comes, throw this into his elixir cauldron to scare him.”
“Is… Is that possible?”
Zhang Ji got a great shock, thinking, ‘Randomly tossing something into the elixir cauldron is not a trivial matter. It might cause me to get kicked out of the clan…’
“Don’t worry, I’ll protect you. He won’t dare do anything to you,” Chen Chen said while handing a token to Zhang Ji.
Of course, he wasn’t asking Zhang Ji to make trouble. Rather, he felt that it would be better to give Zhang Ji that opportunity.
If he told the foolish Zhang Ji the situation clearly, he might believe it but the truth was just too exaggerated. After all, it was beyond the scope of treasure hunting and was somewhat like clairvoyance.
“Okay!” Zhang Ji gritted his teeth and agreed.
This was the first dangerous thing that Chen Chen had asked him to do, he couldn’t reject it at all. He would not hesitate, even if it got expelled from the Tianyun Clan!
“Great! Get going! Remember to do it at the right time! Don’t make a mistake!”
“Don’t worry, brother! I will do a good job!” Zhang Ji put away the fallopia multiflora, turned around, and walked towards the Heavenly Elixir Peak, looking like a suave, brave man all the while.
Staring at his back, the corners of Chen Chen’s mouth curled slightly.
That was all he could do for Zhang Ji. He reckoned that Zhang Ji should be able to grasp the opportunity, which was akin to being a peeping Tom.
After Zhang Ji left, Chen Chen looked at the progress in Little Yellow’s digging. He then hurried towards the Sky Peak at the edge of the Tianyun Mountains.
Chen Chen had checked up on the 100,000-year-old Heavenly Spirit Bell Stalagmite, which could be found there. Its value was not inferior to the Heavenly Spirit Bell Stalagmite.
More importantly, it was useful to him now. Although the Earthly Flame Heavenly Heart Lotus was very valuable, he could only use it after his status of cultivation increased.
Hence, strictly speaking, among the thousands of opportunities this time, the 100,000-year-old Heavenly Spirit Bell Stalagmite was the most precious to him.
As Chen Chen rushed to the sky peak, he felt a long-lost sense of excitement.
After having seen so many heavenly treasures, ordinary treasures no longer enticed or excited him.
However, the 100,000-year-old Heavenly Spirit Bell Stalagmite was different. According to the introduction in books, it could increase one’s status of cultivation and even change one’s constitution…
Such a heavenly treasure was just like the primeval spirit fruit: rare and only existing in legends.
After taking a deep breath, Chen Chen began to dig through the mountain.
Zhang Ji would never be able to find the treasures hidden in the mountains.
Unless the mountain collapsed and the sea rocks decayed someday, the treasure would forever remain hidden.
A large hole then appeared in Chen Chen’s sight, about 20 meters below ground.
“This is it!”
Chen Chen forced himself to suppress the excitement in his heart, beginning to dig. Through the light, a strange scene was reflected in his eyes.
There was a hollow cave inside a mountain, covering an area of about a hundred square meters. It was three meters high and the top of the cave was covered in white stalactites. At a glance, they looked like waves.
It was just like an inverted sea in the cave, an incredibly magical sight.
Even more amazingly, the waves moved from the edges to the center in an unruly manner.
On the sharp edge of the largest stalactite in the center of the area, there was a shiny drop of liquid that was suspended quietly, looking as if it would drip down at any moment.
“100-thousand-year-old Heavenly Spirit Bell Stalagmite… It takes forever to form even a single drop of this!”
Chen Chen was amazed, restless to go up and lick it immediately.
In fact, he went to do just that. Although it would be a little unsightly, it was fortunate that no one would see him.
However, as soon as he went over, the Heavenly Spirit Bell Stalagmite suddenly dropped down.
“Shit! Don’t!” Chen Chen exclaimed. If it dripped onto the ground, it would be too unsightly for him to lick it!
However, he didn’t have the time to stop it, the drop of 100,000-thousand-year-old Heavenly Spirit Bell Stalagmite dripping onto the ground.
The thing is, it disappeared after dropping to the ground!
Seeing this scene, Chen Chen felt a chill in his heart, wishing that he had superpowers to stick his tongue several meters far.
Chen Chen anxiously walked towards the stalactite and began to carefully observe the ground, wanting to see if it could still be salvaged.
“It dripped into the hole…”
Touching the ground, Chen Chen was very indignant.
It turned out that there was a hole below the 100,000-year-old Heavenly Spirit Bell Stalagmite and the reason it disappeared was because it had dripped into the hole.
“I’ll dig it out if I have to dig 300 feet into the ground.”
Chen Chen was not one to resign himself to fate. Hence, he picked up the iron pickaxe and began to dig.
Soon, the tiny hole grew as large as the size of a fist.
Looking into the hole, Chen Chen was dazzled, almost fainting!
There was a whole new world under that hole!
Right below him, there was a one-cubic-meter-sized concave pool of 100,000-year-old Heavenly Spirit Bell Stalagmite…
At this moment, Chen Chen couldn’t help but think of the layout of the Tianyun Clan.
The spirit meridians of Tianyun Clan were below the main peak, and to the right of the main peak, there were great peaks that had an abundance of ethereality. Most of the Tianyun Clan disciples were active in the peaks to the right of the main peak.
In contrast, ethereality was scarce in the main peak to the left.
That seemed very unreasonable, because the distance between the left and right spirit meridians was the same.
At last, Chen Chen understood.
It was because the ethereality of the main peak to the left had been absorbed by the wonderful thing above, which was similar to the heaven and earth array. Finally, it was condensed into the Heavenly Spirit Bell Stalagmite.
The pool of Heavenly Spirit Bell Stalagmite below was likely to be the result of the condensation of half of the ethereality of Tianyun Mountains over hundreds of millions of years!
