Chapter 878: Investigation
With the Eastern Unicorn Hall as a witness, this trade was conducted successfully. Only then did the single-horned middleaged man relax. He was too nervous. Ever since he had miraculously gotten the ‘Scarlet Cloud Pomegranate Core’, he was always apprehensive. He even felt that ‘Myriad Ancient Sacred World’ was too dangerous since killings were too common. He did not mind paying the price, spending more than a million years to travel to the Eastern Unicorn Sacred World.
The Eastern Unicorn Sacred World was a more orderly place than the Seven Star Oceanic Sacred World.
Before the transaction succeeded, he was really nervous. Even though he asked for a price of ‘5,000 Origin World Rocks’, in reality, he had never seen 100 Origin World Rocks before in his life!
‘With these Origin World Rocks, I can start implementing my plan. By then, I should be able to grow stronger swiftly.’ The single-horned middleaged man thought. He had many plans, ‘Peng’er, your uncle teacher will have to spend some time to cultivate. I’ll definitely come back… within one trillion years to the Green Peng Sect! By then, I’ll become the strongest expert in Green Peng Sect and control it!’
Myriad Ancient Sacred World, especially in the region governed by World Ancestor, was too dangerous. It was not appropriate for him to cultivate and grow.
After Xue Ying got the news of that brat, he could not help but ask, “How long have you been away from the Green Peng Sect?”
“A couple of millions of years.” The single-horned middleaged man said.
“Are you certain Yun Peng is still at the Green Peng Sect?” Xue Ying asked.
The single-horned middleaged man was stunned momentarily: “He should be.”
“I think you should investigate a little.” Xue Ying chuckled as he looked towards the branch hall master over at the Eastern Unicorn Hall, “Qi Fu Hall Master, I believe investigating the whereabouts of this brat called Yun Peng shouldn’t be something hard for your Eastern Unicorn Hall right?”
“One Origin World Rock.” This Qi Fu Hall Master beamed.
“Alright.” The single-horned middleaged man immediately replied.
Just one Origin World Rock>
He was currently wealthy, so he did not care about this little amount.
Xue Ying accompanied the single-horned middleaged man in drinking. They were waiting for news coming from the side of Eastern Unicorn Hall. Behind the Eastern Unicorn Hall were the Blade Emperor City, the Void God Palace, Stars City, Ancestor Bone Palace, of which there should be some ancient cultivators who could easily investigate the situation of Green Peng Sect located far away in the Myriad Ancient Sacred World.
After a moment later.
“The brat called Yun Peng isn’t within the Green Peng Sect.” Qi Fu Hall Master said, “I will even give you a piece of information for free. During the investigation of the Green Peng Sect, we discovered that disciples were talking about a group of disciples being kidnapped. Yun Peng was one of them.”
The single-horned middleaged man felt his heart hanging in worry. After hearing that he had been kidnapped did he breath out a sigh of relief since he was still alive. He added: “Where is he located now?”
“How would I know?” Qi Fu Hall Master shook his head, “I do not know his exact location. It isn’t that easy to ascertain it.”
“It is possible.” Xue Ying mentioned.
Just like in the Great Void Heaven Temple, as they were trying to investigate who the assassin was that attacked Xue Ying, if not for the Myriad World Tavern Master hindering them, they should be able to find out who the perpetrator was.
Qi Fu Hall Master glanced at Xue Ying before nodding, “Right. It is possible for us to investigate it, but it is comparatively more troublesome. It will cost 200 Origin World Rocks per investigation.”
“200 Origin World Rocks?” The single-horned middleaged man widened his eyes.
He spent just 10 Origin World Rocks to travel from the Myriad Ancient Sacred World to here! Those experts who passed through the fourth level Star Pagoda would usually not have more than 200 Origin World Rocks including all the treasures they had, and this was the cost of just finding the whereabouts of a cultivator?
“You can certainly decline.” Qi Fu Hall Master chuckled.
“Investigate!” The single-horned middleaged man gritted his teeth.
This was the person he cared the most. He must investigate it.
This time, they waited for a long time.
Two hours later, Qi Fu Hall Master finally replied: “We’ve checked things through. The brat called Yun Peng is currently a slave within Ancient Myriad Sacred World’s ‘Golden Eclipse Nation’s Devil Eye God Prefecture residence.”
“Golden Eclipse Nation? Slave?” The single-horned middleaged man felt his expression turning slightly pale.
The Golden Eclipse Nation.
That was a superpower within the domain governed by World Ancestor in the Myriad Ancient Sacred World. The Golden Eclipse King was even one of the personal disciples of ‘World Ancestor’.
“I’ll be able to arrive at Golden Eclipse Nation and save this brat called Yun Peng within one year.” Xue Ying said.
“You are çonfident of it?” The single-horned middleaged man looked towards Xue Ying with excitement. From how he sees it, with the identity of the Golden Eclipse King as a ‘personal disciple of the World Ancestor’, he would be able to sweep his way across the Myriad Ancient Sacred World.
Xue Ying chuckled.
This brat might be lucky to get such a good treasure, but his understanding of the higher-ups in the three great sacred worlds was too lacking.
“I am confident.” Xue Ying replied.
Once the transaction is settled, Xue Ying personally left the Eastern Unicorn Sacred World and went back to his hometown cosmos.
Within his hometown cosmos, inside the Black Fog Sea Monarch residence.
“Jing Qiu, Jing Qiu.” Xue Ying immediately shouted to his wife when he returned.
Jing Qiu turned around with a smile, “Xue Ying, you came back so quickly? I heard you mention that is is something joyous. Previously, you did not explain to me what exactly is this joyous matter?”
“Hahaha…” Xue Ying could not help but laugh.
It was a momentous matter.
Acquiring this Scarlet Cloud Pomegranate Core was not an easy task!
Firstly, it was because he had reached a certain level of combat power. On the other aspect, he was fortunate to enter the treasure cove of Monarch Nine Cloud! If not for the treasure cove, how was he able to afford the Scarlet Cloud Pomengranate Core? If he depended on himself to save up this amount, Xue Ying did not know when he would have enough.
“What exactly is this joyous matter? Quickly tell me!” Jing Qiu could not help but probe him.
Xue Ying smiled. He flipped his hand, causing a palace hall to appear from nothingness. It landed on the grass and occupied an area of 50 kilometers.
Jing Qiu felt that the aura emanating from this palace hall was extraordinary. Just the unseen aura ripples stifled her.
“Come in with me.” Xue Ying brought his wife into this palace hall.
“From today on, you will be cultivating inside.” Xue Ying chuckled. He flipped his hand, bringing out a black jade bottle. He then hurled it right into a cavity within the hall wall. It was jammed exactly right in that hole. “Weng”, the surface of the black jade bottle started forming golden patterns, causing veined lines to extend across the entire hall. Soon after, a mild fragrance began pervading the place.
When one inhaled this fragrance, his soul would become incomparably calm.
“This fragrance will be able to persist for 380 million years.” Xue Ying said before flipping his hand once again, bringing out the jade container. Opening it up, this container directly let out a sweet scent that resembled that of a tender ‘green bamboo shoot’. Even though it might seem like bamboo, one would be able to spot the difference after thoroughly inspecting it. There were many clear patterns stacked on top of its surface.
“Eat it.” Xue Ying looked towards his wife.
Jing Qiu had just breathed in the sweet scent coming from within the jade container when she felt chiming in her soul. At that moment, her comprehension and pondering abilities had reached an exaggerated stage. It was practically similar to the past when she had enlightenment flashes.
She knew that her husband had left his hometown cosmos for the sake of finding treasures so that they could transcend. And now, Qing Yao and Dong Bo Yu had both transcended by themselves, leaving only her!
The joyous matter mentioned by her husband should likely be referring to this treasure.
“Mn.” Jing Qiu picked it up. She lightly bit on the fruit. It was crunchy, and the moment it entered her mouth, it immediately transformed into green energy that fused into her body. She felt an even more soul-provoking feeling than before when he had smelled the sweet scent, causing her soul to tremble.
“Quickly, finish eating it.” Xue Ying urged her.
Jing Qiu took two mouthfuls to finish the fruit.
She did not know how precious this treasure was that she ate! If one had gone to exchange this Scarlet Cloud Pomegranate Core… it was possible to trade it with a puppet lifeform comparable in strength with the ‘Black Wild Dog’ from the Starting Ground. Creating a cosmos might not even be as pricey as this Scarlet Cloud Pomegranate Core! Some of the newer Primal Chaos realm giants could not afford this even if they were to sell all their treasures.
