Due to Nie Tian’s clowning, Mu Biqiong didn’t get a straight answer.
Nie Tian knew perfectly well that the demonic flowers inside of her had only behaved so strangely because they were attracted to his unique bloodline.
His bloodline was probably also why he had been able to obtain the Wood Thriving Formation.
Furthermore, his Blood Essence, which also contained his bloodline power, had also had incredible effects on the Bone Blood Demon and the Flame Dragon Armor, allowing these two ‘dead things’ to reawaken their life force.
The Frost Blood Python had been after his unique bloodline as well.
He started to have a feeling that his unique bloodline could somehow breathe life into things.
Of course, he wouldn’t tell Mu Biqiong about this incredible trait of his bloodline. Therefore, he had intentionally messed with her to anger and distract her.
Getting more and more angry, Mu Biqiong panted heavily, her ample chest going up and down in a very charming way.
The reason why she was so keen to learn about the secret of Nie Tian’s body was because she wanted to know why the coexisting flowers inside of her would want her to get intimate with Nie Tian, of all people, so badly.
Besides, this was the first time the coexisting flowers had reached a mutual understanding on a matter. There must be a reason behind it.
She also believed that, like the coexisting flowers had told her, her mating with Nie Tian would most likely benefit her and the coexisting flowers to great extents.
She was so bent on figuring out the reason because then she would be able to take precautions accordingly to prevent similar things from happening again.
She hadn’t refined all of the wood power essence she had absorbed from the Fortune Well yet. Once she did, she would have a good chance at advancing to the Profound realm. However, the chance of her being possessed by the coexisting flowers again would also rise.
She was worried that the coexisting flowers would bewitch Nie Tian again.
If Yin Yanan hadn’t shown up and commanded the Frost Blood Python to stop them with its frost power last time, the coexisting flowers might have already gotten what they wanted.
Their success would mean letting Nie Tian ruin her chastity, which she had held onto for many years.
The thought that what had happened might be repeated once she was possessed by the coexisting flowers again put her in a bad mood.
Seeing Nie Tian’s rascally face, she could only get even more upset and angry.
Eventually, Mu Biqiong left in anger.
This time, she chose a location very far from Nie Tian to practice cultivation, lest there be some mishap and the coexisting flowers throw her at Nie Tian again, stripped of all garments.
Two weeks passed...
After a period of wholehearted cultivation, Nie Tian had finally filled his spiritual core and three vortexes of different powers to the brim.
However, he was still far from being ready to break through into the Profound realm. He would still need to spend a long time refining his spiritual core and expanding his three vortexes.
Unlike the powers from the Fortune Wells, the powers he absorbed from his spiritual materials didn’t contain the so-called ‘fortune power’.
Since his efficiency of refining his spiritual core and vortexes with regular spiritual power was fairly low, he would have to refine them bit by bit over a long period of time.
Meanwhile, Yin Yanan and Mu Biqiong had failed to achieve breakthroughs in their cultivation as well when the three of them reconvened.
After picking Nie Tian and Mu Biqiong up on her air-transportation spiritual tool, Yin Yanan asked Nie Tian, “Do we keep traveling along the outermost ring of the Shatter Battlefield?”
Nie Tian nodded. “I guess we don’t have a better choice. I wonder if there are other magical places like the Fortune Wells in the outermost ring of the Shatter Battlefield. We should have asked Chai Longge and his sister about it. It looks like we’ll have to go back to traveling aimlessly like headless flies.”
Yin Yanan curled her lips. “Those two were too cowardly. They were nothing but a burden to us.”
Back when Qiu Ji had first showed up, Chai Longge and his sister had only urged them to leave, but hadn’t stood by their side in their moment of need.
Their decision had put ill feelings in Yin Yanan and Mu Biqiong’s hearts, making them unwilling to travel with them anymore.
Even though the brother-sister pair were chosen ones from the Martial Spirit Sect, they weren’t strong enough to win Yin Yanan and Mu Biqiong’s respect.
“So let’s continue traveling along the outermost ring of the Shatter Battlefield then, and see what we can find,” Nie Tian said.
Their air-transportation spiritual tool then flew out.
The three of them cultivated in silence for a long while before Yin Yanan suddenly turned to Nie Tian and said with a slightly embarrassed expression, “Well, Nie Tian...”
Nie Tian opened his eyes. “What?”
“Do you still have soul crystals left on you?” Yin Yanan asked.
“I do,” Nie Tian answered.
Yin Yanan seemed somewhat hesitant as she asked, “Could you give me another three? I’ll make it up to you. If you want my Silicon Silver, you can have it all. All I want is three more soul crystals.”
Mu Biqiong overheard her in the middle of her cultivation and opened her eyes, which also shone with the light of desire.
“What do you need them for?” Nie Tian asked.
With a bitter smile, Yin Yanan said, “The inadequate refinement of my true soul is what’s stopping me from breaking through into the middle Profound realm. I’ve already refined my spiritual core and frost power to the point where they’re ready for my next breakthrough in cultivation. A large part of that had to do with the frost power I absorbed from the Fortune Well. However, from now on, my future breakthroughs in cultivation will largely be related to the development of my true soul.
“As you know, it’s very difficult and consuming to refine true souls. Since we didn’t gain any fortune from the Fortune Well that spewed pure soul power, it’ll take me a long time to finish the process.
“But your soul crystals contain pure soul power too, which will help greatly speed up the process, allowing me to break the shackles on my cultivation and advance to the middle Profound realm within a short time.”
At this moment, Mu Biqiong chimed in, “My poorly refined true soul is also what’s keeping me from making my breakthrough.”
Eyes narrowed, Nie Tian said with an expressionless face, “From the look of it, soul materials like soul crystals are indeed more precious than all sorts of spiritual materials.”
The girls fixed Nie Tian with tensed, confirming looks simultaneously.
“I do have some soul crystals left on me, but they’re too hard to find, and I have a great need for them myself,” Nie Tian said.
The girls let out weak sighs, frustration filling their eyes, as if they had expected that Nie Tian wouldn’t agree to their request so easily.
WHOOSH! WHOOSH! WHOOSH!
Six soul crystals suddenly flew out of Nie Tian’s ring of holding, and came to float before Yin Yanan and Mu Biqiong.
The girls’ expressions flickered as their eyes were filled with surprise, but then deep confusion.
Nie Tian chuckled. “As precious as they are, I’m a man who’s generous with my women.”
The girls were dumbfounded. “Your women?”
Nie Tian waved his hand casually. “Go ahead. Take them. I’ve kissed and felt both of you up. It’s only a matter of time before you two become mine.”
Mu Biqiong fixed Yin Yanan with a surprised look, and asked, “You... too?”
Yin Yanan’s face flushed slightly as she said, “Don’t listen to him!”
However, she recovered her calm face in the next moment, and squarely grabbed three of the soul crystals. With a womanly chuckle, she said to Nie Tian, “You’re quite ballsy for harboring such intentions towards me. Alright. Don’t say that I refuse to give you any opportunities. I’ll let you have me when your cultivation base rises beyond mine.”
“Deal!” Nie Tian said with a broad laugh.
Yin Yanan laughed aloud. “It’s too bad that you practice multiple attributes. Even though your battle prowess far exceeds that of most cultivators at your level, the speed at which your cultivation base advances is greatly limited. There’s no way that your cultivation base will surpass mine. You might as well give up now.”
Nie Tian was full of smiles. “That’s not necessarily true.”
“Fine, I shall wait for the day when your cultivation base surpasses mine.” As an unusually fierce woman, Yin Yanan just dared to say anything.
Nie Tian then turned to Mu Biqiong and asked with a smile, “What about you?! In my opinion, you might as well listen to the coexisting flowers inside of you. They might be plants, but they’re obviously smarter than you, as they’ve long since realized that I’m a perfect match for you.”
“They’re not me!” Mu Biqiong said coldly.
With these words, she reached out and grabbed the three remaining soul crystals that were floating before her.
Afterwards, she closed her eyes, ignoring Nie Tian’s ridicule.
“Three soul crystals, and you think I’ll stop detesting you?” She said with her eyes closed. “It’s far from enough! I’ll find similar soul crystals in the future to pay you back.”
Nie Tian didn’t say anything, a sneer appearing at the corner of his mouth.
With a strange look in her eyes, Yin Yanan said in a soft voice, “You’re so pathetic. Jiang Feng wanted you to take initiatives with Nie Tian, and the flowers inside of you forced you into his arms... It doesn’t feel good to be controlled by others, right? The way I see it, if you can’t resist them, you might as well give in and do what you’re told.”
“My life is in my hands. Don’t you worry about me!” Mu Biqiong said coldly.
The three of them fell silent again.
Seven days passed...
While their air-transportation spiritual tool was passing through a region, several Profound realm Qi warriors approached them on air-transportation spiritual tools, and shouted at them from afar, “The Water Moon Sect has marked this region as a forbidden region. Please go around it!”
“The Water Moon Sect?”
