Chapter 1217 – Dragon Pearl
But just as Qin Yu turned, he saw Dragini blocking his way with a bright smile. “Ah, junior-apprentice brother Qin Yu ate so fast. That’s good, there are some matters I hope to speak to you about. Sometimes, I can be a bit impulsive. How about we toast each other and forget about what happened in the past?”
Qin Yu gnashed his teeth together. This d.a.m.ned Dragini, she clearly just didn’t want him to leave. What bulls.h.i.+t ‘forgetting about the past’ was she blabbing about?
Feeling the eyes around him gathering on him, Qin Yu covered his belly and forced out a smile, “My apologies, but because of a recent cultivation issue, my stomach feels uncomfortable. Once I solve this issue I will definitely return to drink some wine with sister Dragini.”
He was about to pa.s.s around her but was suddenly grabbed by the hand. Dragini said in a louder voice, “Your stomach is feeling uncomfortable? The higher cultivation a person has, the more they understand the condition of their own body. But it is exactly for this reason that even small problems are worth taking seriously. Junior-apprentice brother Qin, you cannot be negligent!
“Everyone, does anyone have a pill that can treat upset stomachs? Hurry up and take out a few, otherwise junior-apprentice brother Qin will have to leave the stage ahead of time.”
Qin Yu immediately understood that he wouldn’t be able to walk away today!
He glared at Dragini. This woman was looking at him with smug satisfaction, as if saying to hit her if he wasn’t happy!
She was simply asking for a punch to the face!
Endure it, don’t attack, otherwise you will fall for her trap!
Qin Yu to a deep breath. He pulled back his hand and said, “There’s no need to trouble you. It’s just a small problem. I can hold it in.”
He turned around and sat down in his seat.
Dragini had a look of fake concern on her face, “Junior-apprentice brother Qin, if you are really feeling uncomfortable, you should take medicine as soon as possible. I heard that there are many junior-apprentice brothers and sisters who want to have a friendly spar with the peach garden’s new Ninth Mister. After all, what kind of character is the Spring Master? The disciple that he personally chose must be outstanding.”
As she finished speaking, she swept her eyes around and said, “If anyone wants to have a spar with junior-apprentice brother Qin, you should pay attention to his condition ahead of time. He isn’t feeling well right now, so is it fine to challenge him like this?”
She was clearly provoking everyone!
And she also blocked off the possibility of him using the excuse of feeling unwell to withdraw from today’s matter.
Qin Yu secretly clenched his teeth. He really couldn’t figure out what he had done for her to keep pestering him like a lingering disease.
Xu s.h.i.+ was the first to stand up. He lifted a hand and light surged on his palm. A jade bottle appeared.
“Your Highness Dragini is correct. I very much hope to spar with junior-apprentice brother Qin today, but I cannot take advantage of him.”
“These pills are a secret medicine of my Xu Family and their effect is quite good. Taking them should be enough to cure junior-apprentice brother Qin’s upset stomach.”
Another person stood up, his smile wide and bright. “If junior-apprentice brother Qin feels that is not enough, my Sunflaw Family also has some medicines that you can take.”
“Hahaha, it’s just a trivial upset stomach, so why do you two need to make such a big deal out of it? Do you really think the peach garden doesn’t have suitable medicine?” This third person smiled as he spoke, much more sinister than the others and clearly with no intention of taking anything out.
Of course, the meaning was the same. Running away is impossible, so obediently stand there and let us beat you up!
Qin Yu darkly sighed. As he thought, being a s.h.i.+eld wasn’t an easy job. These three were vigorously chasing after him, and with this idiot Dragini adding fuel to the flames, there was nowhere he could hide.
He swept his eyes around and immediately caught a few different kinds of looks. There were those that were confused, those that were surprised, but most of all…there were those who were suppressing their laughs and gloating.
Rice Paper…Ruan Jing…Soaring Sky…Zhou Lei…
These four cultivators had now gathered. Without a single one missing, they were all at the East Sea Dragon Palace.
They had met during the spirit body incident in the Land of Disorder. Strictly speaking, Qin Yu was only a pa.s.ser-by to them. Both sides had numerous conflicts, and Soaring Sky even brutally attacked Qin Yu, forcing him to use his s.p.a.ce Laws that initiated the chaos later.
But in the end, they had crossed adversity together and experienced a life and death danger. Moreover, together they had killed the Sly Fate Clan’s Soul Hook, becoming people who stood on the same boat.
Their relations.h.i.+p was a little complicated. Yet, as a result, it gave birth to a strange sense of intimacy in the hearts of these people.
After leaving the Endless Sea, Qin Yu broke off connections with the four. Even though they didn’t have much contact with each other, they still learned about Qin Yu entering Peach Blossom Spring.
Honestly, this was within their expectations. Qin Yu’s talent was heaven-defying and he also accomplished an incredible feat in the Endless Sea – he killed off all the sea monsters and broke the curse that the spirit body had placed on him before its death!
When they first learned of this, even Soaring Sky who had the coldest and most indifferent personality couldn’t help but drop his jaw.
They personally crossed the Endless Sea and had killed numerous monster beasts in the sea. A single one wasn’t a big deal. With a bit of effort, they could even kill a thousand and more.
But how many sea monsters were there in the vast Endless Sea? No one had ever counted, but even a fool knew it must be an astronomical number.
Killing them all off? What a joke. Just thinking about it made their arms and legs feel tired.
But Qin Yu had done it!
Although they had no idea what the exact process was, this accomplishment in itself was already sufficiently amazing.
So, the four cultivators actually weren’t worried about the current situation Qin Yu was in.
On the contrary, it was those impatient and eager fellows in the grand hall that didn’t understand what sort of freakish monster they were provoking right now.
Beat up Qin Yu and have him lament his actions, and then have him fall to the ground and lose all face and honor? Hoho…such a possibility never existed to begin with.
Now, how much these people looked forward to it was how much they would be humiliated in the future. This peach garden’s Ninth Mister was destined to become famous today.
So they only needed to watch from the side and allow Qin Yu to expose his prowess.
Sensing Qin Yu glancing at them, the four all lowered their heads at the same time. Their meaning was – please don’t look for me, even if you do I cannot help you.
This was the combat compet.i.tion at the Dragon Saint’s longevity feast. No matter how many twists and turns there were, once it began, real swords and spears would be drawn. Anyone who dared to use minor methods would only be bringing disaster on themselves.
Qin Yu also realized this. He withdrew his eyes and hesitated for a moment. Then, he leaned over and whispered some words into Peachy’s ear. He originally thought that she wouldn’t agree, but to his surprise, she nodded.
Although the scope was small, it didn’t escape Qin Yu’s eyes. He relaxed a little. In this crucial moment, Peachy really was thinking of him. With her help, things would be much simpler.
Behind the crystal wall, the Dragon Saint’s eyes flashed with a sharp light. As a True Saint who had reached the other sh.o.r.e, this entire place was covered in his Great Dao and he sensed everything.
Qin Yu spoke quietly and used a concealing method, but this didn’t affect him at all.
So when Qin Yu spoke to Peachy, he clearly heard everything. His first response was that this boy didn’t care about face at all. Then, his second response was that he thought this boy was a rare talent.
In this world, the most useless and burdensome thing was the so-called face. Yet, the majority of people in the world couldn’t leap out of the pit that was face.
In today’s situation, Qin Yu could do something so shameless. It could be seen that he didn’t care about things like face or honor at all.
Only those that didn’t care about face, or didn’t even care about honor, could live longer than others. However, if anyone were to ask the Lord Dragon Saint how he knew of this, then they would definitely take a beating.
In short, the giant and dignified eyes that watched from behind the crystal wall looked at Qin Yu with favor. Even rarer, there was also some impatience. He wanted to see just what depths this boy Qin Yu was hiding within him.
With a light cough, the grand hall fell silent. From behind the crystal wall, the Dragon Saint’s laughter rang out, “You kids seem to be impatient already. Then, don’t delay further. Begin.”
As he spoke, a giant dragon claw appeared from behind the crystal wall. The longest and sharpest claw lightly knocked on the wall.
The dragon claw knocked on the crystal wall, but it was the s.p.a.ce in the hall that broke open. Then, a crack appeared and a dragon pearl flew out.
That’s right, it was a dragon pearl.
The reason one could see this with one glance was because in this ball that was the size of several adult fists put together, there was the phantom of a giant dragon roaring.
The Dragon Clan cultivated for a lifetime, and most of their essence was contained in their dragon pearl.
So many years ago, hunting down giant dragons and stealing their dragon pearls was something that formidable cultivators liked to do.
However, after the Dragon Saint crossed the sea and became a True Saint, few incidents of dragon hunting occurred again. Of course, the exact process didn’t need to be explained, but in short it was incredibly b.l.o.o.d.y and violent.
By himself, the Dragon Saint guarded the Dragon Clan and gave them s.p.a.ce to live. If this were any other place, even if a dragon pearl appeared, no one would dare to touch it. Of course, today was an exception as this was a dragon pearl that the Dragon Saint took out himself.
“This dragon pearl comes from a giant golden dragon that used to follow me, and is what was left over after he died in battle. The dragon soul has dissipated long ago. I am taking this out as the prize today. The golden dragon race is most known for their formidable mortal bodies. I personally gathered this dragon pearl. Even though that golden dragon died in battle, over half of its blood and flesh essence is maintained.
“Above an Origin G.o.d is looking at the sea, and after looking at the sea is stepping into it. But the Sea of Bitterness is boundless, with wild waves and great winds. You must have a formidable mortal body to withstand it. Otherwise, in the endless sea where you cannot see the other sh.o.r.e, you will have your mortal body corrupted and ruined by the waters before you even have a chance to rush over to it.”
The Dragon Saint knocked on the crystal wall again and the s.p.a.ce crack opened once more, swallowing up the dragon pearl. “This is today’s prize. Any junior who has a streak of three wins can take it away.”
In the hall, everyone’s eyes lit up with burning heat. They never thought that the Dragon Saint who was renowned for being miserly and cheap would actually take out something so precious.
As the Dragon Saint said, how difficult was crossing the sea? They were well aware of this as disciples of Saints.
If they could obtain this dragon pearl and refine its essence into their mortal bodies, that was the equivalent of offsetting around 30% of the difficulty of crossing the sea.
An Origin G.o.d could be considered an absolute powerhouse in the myriad heavens and infinite worlds. But the cultivators that came to the East Sea today were all disciples of Saints. And for them to be able to partic.i.p.ate in this longevity feast, they were excellent even amongst the disciples of Saints.
These people all had a high field of vision. They simply didn’t care about anything at the Origin G.o.d realm or below. What they aimed for was the supreme Saint path!
So to them, this dragon pearl left behind by a giant golden dragon held an intense attraction.
