Book 8 Chapter 21 Dreamy Cloud White Fruit
“Martial Immortal? Emptiness Realm?”
Teng Qingshan was very confused as he stared at the Dreamy Cloud Martial Immortal. Although Teng Qingshan didn’t know much about the Emptiness Realm, he knew one thing: the indication of one stepping into the Emptiness Realm was the ability to communicate with the heavens and the earth, and the possession of an endless amount of True Origin! However, Teng Qingshan was not able to communicate with the heavens and the earth, and he did not have endless amount of Internal Supreme Force.
“Senior, I haven’t reached the Emptiness Realm. Why did you……” Teng Qingshan looked at the Dreamy Cloud Martial Immortal in confusion.
“Eh?” The Dreamy Cloud Martial Immortal froze and immediately burst out in laughter. “Qingshan, reaching the Emptiness Realm is a good thing. Why are you hiding this? Why? Do you think I can’t tell? The power of your spear is definitely not something that a Golden Dan Innate Expert can perform.
“The spear power of an expert that has just entered the Emptiness Realm Experts is not much stronger than yours,” The Dreamy Cloud Martial Immortal said.
As the Dreamy Cloud Martial Immortal continued speaking, his expression changed. He scrutinized Teng Qingshan for a while. Then when he saw that Teng Qingshan’s expression did not appear to be fake, he asked in shock, “Why? Are you really not an Emptiness Realm Expert?”
“Senior, I know that experts who have reached the Emptiness Realm are able to communicate with the heavens and the earth and possess an endless amount of True Origin,” Teng Qingshan shook his head as he answered. “However, I haven’t reach the Emptiness Realm.”
” The Dreamy Cloud Martial Immortal scrutinized Teng Qingshan and said, “Qingshan, that strike of yours must contain the understanding of the Dao of Water. Its power is very close to that of a Novice Emptiness Realm Expert.”
Teng Qingshan understood that somewhat.
The explosive force of a Golden Dan Innate Expert should be around eight hundred thousand, while he already possessed an explosive force of one million and six hundred thousand! It was twice as much! Teng Qingshan was totally not on the same level as a Golden Dan Innate Expert. Teng Qingshan knew that… the Emptiness Realm Experts were also divided into different cultivation rankings. The Dao of the Heavens was vast. The experts only stepped into the Emptiness Realm after they had attained small achievements in the understanding of the Dao of the Heavens.
The Transcendent Emptiness Realm Experts were the only ones who comprehended the Dao of the Heavens fully.
There was a great difference between Novice Emptiness Realm Experts and Transcendent Emptiness Realm Experts. Since the Dreamy Cloud Martial Immortal was not able to fly, it was obvious he had not reached the Transcendent Emptiness Realm.
“The Novice Emptiness Realm is the lowest cultivation rank of the Emptiness Realm! According to what the Dreamy Cloud Martial Immortal said, the explosive force of a Novice Emptiness Realm Expert is almost the same as mine. This means that the explosive force of a Novice Emptiness Realm Expert is twice the explosive force of a Golden Dan Innate Expert, and that is not strange at all.
“Even before I stepped into the Emptiness Realm, I already possessed such strength. Once I step into the Emptiness Realm, I will probably be stronger than the other ordinary Novice Emptiness Realm Experts!”
Teng Qingshan felt a sense of joy.
If one was a level higher in the beginning, they would always be one level higher! The cultivation of the Internal Martial Arts had strengthened Teng Qingshan’s body. When he reaches the Emptiness Realm in the future, he would become the first Emptiness Realm Expert in the history of the Internal Martial Arts. He would also be stronger than the ordinary Emptiness Realm Expert.
“Alright. Let’s not talk about this.”
The Dreamy Cloud Martial Immortal smiled and said, “Let’s sit down and talk about what’s important.”
Teng Qingshan and the Dreamy Cloud Martial Immortal sat opposite each other.
“Whether you are an Emptiness Realm Expert or not, it is true that besides me and the Emptiness Realm Expert of the Tianfeng Clan, no one in Duanmu Continent can win against you.” The Dreamy Cloud Martial Immortal ascertained, “Besides the Emptiness Realm Demonic Beast, the rest of the demonic beasts in the Dreamy Cloud Swampland are no match against you. ”
“This time, I’ve asked you, Qingshan, to come help search for a Spiritual Medicine. No harm will come to you.” The Dreamy Cloud Martial Immortal said with a smile.
“Senior, did you say Emptiness Realm Demonic Beast?” Teng Qingshan was slightly surprised. “There’s an Emptiness Realm Demonic Beast in the Dreamy Cloud Swampland?”
The Dreamy Cloud Martial Immortal sighed and said, “In the past, Duanmu Deity, the existence which had emerged into this world and conquered it with a thunder blade, mounted a Divine Beast, Dark Elegant Horse. It is a demonic beast that has reached the Emptiness Realm. Although it does not have wings, the Dark Elegant Horse can still fly in the air. It’s obvious that the Dark Elegant Horse is a Divine Beast that has reached the Transcendent Emptiness Realm.”
“Ever since Duanmu Deity passed away and the Dark Elegant Horse lost its master, the Divine Beast has been residing in the Three Thousand Li Dreamy Cloud Swampland. I have entered the Dreamy Cloud Swampland over a hundred times and have seen the Dark Elegant Horse a few times.” As the Dreamy Cloud Martial Immortal spoke, a peculiar and colorful glow shone in his eyes.
Dark Elegant Horse!
It was the mount of the Thunder Blade Deity, Duanmu Yu. Duanmu Yu was a figure of the same level as Emperor Yu. Thus, it was not weird at all that…… the other Emptiness Realm Experts desired to subdue his mount….
“Dark Elegant Horse!” The Dreamy Cloud Martial Immortal sighed and said, “This Divine Bast is full of pride. Besides Duanmu Deity, no one has ever subdued it.”
“One could say that the Divine Beast, Dark Elegant Horse, is the ruler of the Dreamy Cloud Swampland!” The Dreamy Cloud Martial Immortal exclaimed in admiration.
When Teng Qingshan heard this, he too had a desire for the Dark Elegant Horse.
Of course, Teng Qingshan just wanted to see the Transcendent Emptiness Realm Divine Beast. He didn’t dare to arrogantly think that he had the capability to subdue the Dark Elegant Horse. During the incident at the Great Yan Mountain of Yangzhou, the demonic dragon, Violet Rain, had emerged and a disaster occurred. The innate experts of many Supreme Sects had been killed and the Silver Dragon Army of Qing Hu Island lost over ten thousand soldiers.
Although Teng Qingshan hadn’t seen it with his own eyes, he had obtained the information from Li Jun when he met her.
As the Goddess of the God of Heaven Mountain, it was not weird for Li Jun to know this information.
“Senior, you asked me to help you find a medicine. What Spiritual Medicine should I be searching for? Where is this Spiritual Medicine? The Dreamy Cloud Swampland has a length of three thousand Li. Please don’t tell me you want me to search for it blindly?” Teng Qingshan knew very clearly that the Dreamy Cloud Swampland had an area of three thousand Li as well as a harsh environment. It would probably take several dozen hours to traverse the Dreamy Cloud Swampland.
However, Teng Qingshan wasn’t going to traverse the Dreamy Cloud Swampland. He was going to search for the medicine, and he needed to search for it carefully! Thus, his travelling speed would naturally be slow. Travelling a distance of three thousand Li slowly would take ten to fifteen days.
However, most importantly—
The Dreamy Cloud Swampland had a length of three thousand Li and the width of one thousand Li. Even if one travelled back and forth a thousand times, it was still impossible to traverse every part of the Dreamy Cloud Swampland.
“Haha…… Don’t worry. I won’t make you run around blindly.” The Dreamy Cloud Martial Immortal laughed and said, “I think you know that although the most treacherous zones in Duanmu Continent have endless disasters and are extremely dangerous, the heavens are fair. The three most treacherous zones have three Spiritual Treasures!”
“In the Dreamy Cloud Swampland, there’s the Dreamy Cloud White Fruit, while in the Blazing Flame Territory, there’s the Blazing Flame Red Lotus, and in Tianfeng Canyon, there’s the Tianfeng Aqua Bead.” The Dreamy Cloud Martial Immortal said with a smile, “This time, I need you to find the Dreamy Cloud White Fruit.”
Teng Qingshan froze.
Dreamy Cloud White Fruit? Blazing Flame Red Lotus? Tianfeng Aqua Bead? Teng Qingshan had never heard of these three Spiritual Treasures.
“Senior, can you tell me about these three Spiritual Treasures? I really don’t know anything about them.” Teng Qingshan asked shamelessly. He knew too little about Duanmu Continent.
“Eh?” The Dreamy Cloud Martial Immortal was very astonished as he remarked, “Your instructor didn’t even tell you these…”
“These three Greatest Spiritual Treasures have different magical effects! Although there are many Spiritual Treasures in the three treacherous zones, these three are the best! Of the three, the Tianfeng Aqua Bead is a droplet nurtured by the extremely cold Tianfeng Valley. This droplet is completely green and doesn’t freeze even in the icy cold Tianfeng Valley. If someone consumed it, the channels in his entire body would open up, and his body would possess a great strength of one hundred thousand Jin. In other words, the body of the person who consumed it would morph into a perfect body.” The Dreamy Cloud Martial Immortal said in admiration.
Teng Qingshan froze.
A great strength of one hundred thousand Jin? All the meridians and channels in the body would open up?
This… was too terrifying!
“The Blazing Flame Red Lotus is even more marvelous. The seeds of the Blazing Flame Red Lotus are desired by all clans. If one consumed one lotus seed, their ‘Spirit’ would increase rapidly. If an inner strength expert at the peak of the Postliminary Realm consumed one lotus seed, he would most likely reach the Innate Realm.” The Dreamy Cloud Martial Immortal continued saying, “In the past several thousand years, nine red lotuses have been found. Of the nine Red Lotuses, there are the Three Leaves Red Lotus, Four Leaves Red Lotus, and Five Leaves Red Lotus, and also the Seven Leaves Red Lotus. The nine Red Lotuses had a total of 42 seeds. According to record of history, of the 42 experts who ate the lotus seeds, only one of them failed to reach the Innate Realm, while the other 42 experts all reached it!”
When Teng Qingshan heard, he was so shock that his eyes widened.
The Blazing Flame Red Lotus which could create Innate Experts? Among the 42 experts who consumed the seeds, 41 experts had succeeded? This had a high probability of success!
Of course, the history of several thousand years only had an addition of 41 innate experts. If the average was counted, the birth of innate experts would be less than one in a hundred years.
However, whether it’s the Blazing Flame Red Lotus or the Tianfeng Aqua Bead, the effects shown were really too astonishing.
”The heavens are indeed fair. Duanmu Continent has a great number of disasters, yet it actually also has such nature-defying Spiritual Treasures.” Teng Qingshan sighed in admiration. In the Land of Nine Prefectures, Teng Qingshan had not really found any Spiritual Treasures which could be compared with the Blazing Flame Red Lotus and the Tianfeng Aqua Bead.
Of course, the Grass of Immortality could! However, the Grass of Immortality was related to the Undying Phoenix. Its existence had nothing to do with the Land of Nine Prefectures.
“The third item, Dreamy Cloud White Fruit.” The Dreamy Cloud Martial Immortal continued saying, “The Dreamy Cloud White Fruit has the appearance of an infant, and it has the phenomenal effect of reviving flesh and bones.”
Hearing that the Dreamy Cloud White Fruit had the appearance of an infant, Teng Qingshan couldn’t help but recall the Ginseng Fruit mentioned in the myth of his previous world.
“Reviving flesh and bones? Senior, perhaps, it is able to revive even the dead?” Teng Qingshan was amazed.
“Haha, the Dreamy Cloud White Fruit is extremely magical.” The Dreamy Cloud Martial Immortal laughed and said, “Qingshan, you should know. If a person’s vital body part is heavily wounded, and he loses his vitality, his ‘Spirit’ will dispersed and the person will die.”
“As for this Dreamy Cloud White Fruit? Even if you were heavily injured… For example, if someone pierced a hole on your chest and even crushed your heart and lungs, according to reason, you would lose your vitality and would definitely die. However…… if you consume this Dreamy Cloud White Fruit before your Spirit dispersed, even if your heart and lungs were crushed, they will grow back! The hole on your chest would also recover. Even if someone hacked your waist and cut off half of your body, if you eat this Dreamy Cloud White Fruit, the other half of the body will grow back!”
When Teng Qingshan heard this, he was greatly astonished.
Revive the flesh and bones of a person?
It wasn’t a rumor!
“If only I had the Dreamy Cloud White Fruit.” Teng Qingshan felt his heart ache as he thought to himself.
If he had the Dreamy Cloud White Fruit when Qing Qing had been about to die, does that mean that Qing Qing might have been able to survive?
Qing Qing had already been dead for several years.
“Of course, if the person is already dead and his Spirit has already dispersed, the fruit would be useless to him.” The Dreamy Cloud Martial Immortal shook his head and said, “Yiyun, the most excellent one of the Mu Clan’s youngest generation, reached the innate realm at the young age of twenty-nine years old. When he was nineteen years old, someone had cut his limbs off. Who would have thought that he would actually endure the pressure and even reach the Innate Realm now!”
“Losing a pair of limbs does affect one’s ability greatly. Therefore, I prepare to find the Dreamy Cloud White Fruit for him and help him grow another pair of limbs.”
A thought struck Teng Qingshan, and his heart palpitated once.
“My father’s legs are broken. He must have experienced many inconveniences in life and is probably suffering greatly. If I can bring one Dreamy Cloud White Fruit back to the Land of the Nine Prefectures…” Teng Qingshan could feel his blood boil in his veins as he thought of this.
