Chapter 438: Spells’ Origin Note Scroll
Translator: Noodletown Translated Editor: Noodletown Translated
A bright beam of green light suddenly dropped from the sky in front of Hao Ren. Then, an old lady who was wearing a simple green robe appeared.
She stood firmly on the tiles, and her clothes were tidy and did not flutter at all.
“Grandma!” Hao Ren said in awe and surprise.
“Humph. Who was the person that wanted to get rid of our Yujia?” Old Grandma looked at Hao Ren and Zhao Kuo coldly and said.
“I said it!” Zhao Kuo stood up and said.
“Humph,” old Grandma snorted and showed her displeasure.
It was just a light sound, but both Zhao Kuo and Hao Ren were in so much pain that their heads felt like they were going to explode. They felt like there was a needle that was poked into the back of their heads.
Old Grandma glanced at Hao Ren and saw that his face was swollen.
“I don’t have many shortcomings, but one of them is being overly protective,” old Grandma said.
Zhao Kuo was just about to argue with her when a sudden strong gust of power came toward him, and he felt like his mouth was stuffed by nature essence and couldn’t control his body. Then, he fell backward.
During the whole process, old Grandma stood still and didn’t even moving a single finger.
Old Grandma stood firmly in front of Hao Ren and said, “If you don’t treat Yujia well, you will pay for it!”
“Oh…” Hao Ren couldn’t say anything.
One was a dragon cultivator who had high chances of charging into the Heavenly Dragon Realm, and the other was a Soul Formation Realm cultivator. What else could he say?
“I put a dharma note in Yujia’s shoulders, so no one at the Dragon God Shrine would dare to hurt her. However, I still can’t prevent other people from bullying her.” Old Grandma took out an ancient book from her sleeve and said, “Give this book to Yujia. Even though her talent in cultivation is poor, she still got to the Foundation Establishment Realm through hard work.”
Hao Ren took the book and looked at it. On it, it said [Spells’ Origin Note Scroll] in ancient characters.
He put the scroll that had a ton of nature essence into his necklace. After thinking it over, he asked, “Yujia is at the dragon palace. Why don’t you give it to her yourself?”
“That girl is compassionate and emotional. I’m afraid of seeing her cry, so it is better if I don’t see her,” Old Grandma responded.
Hao Ren nodded; he knew that Xie Yujia had missed Old Grandma who taught her dearly.
Hao Ren thought that he had the potential to be a delivery agent. After all, Zhao Haoran asked him to deliver the Black Dragon Spike and old Grandma asked him to deliver the scroll.
“Didn’t you put on a great show at the Dragon God Shrine? I see that your realm has reached new heights,” Old Grandma said.
“I reached the mid-tier Gen-level,” Hao Ren responded honestly.
Mid-tier Gen-level was impressive amongst the new generations, but it was nothing in front of a Soul Formation Realm cultivator.
“You think exhausting yourself to transform into a dragon is fun?” Old Grandma took out a white elixir pill and threw it toward Hao Ren. “It might look as if your realm improved, but your meridian is secretly wounded in reality. I know the youngsters like to climb up the ladder quickly, but you also have to be careful!”
“This is a Marrow Transformation Pill, and it can heal your meridians. At Yujia’s current realm, she couldn’t make it. Cultivation needs to be steady; I don’t want to see Yujia becoming a widow at such a young age!” Old Grandma stared at Hao Ren and said.
“Widow…” Hao Ren’s face turned bright red when he heard this word.
It looked like this Soul Formation Realm cultivator was hard selling Yujia, and Hao Ren couldn’t escape the fact that he was going to marry Yujia!
Hao Ren hurried and swallowed the pill as Old Grandma stared at him. She could easily kill him since she was at a Soul Formation Realm cultivator and wouldn’t need to poison him through the pill.
This pill was the legendary level 9 golden pill. It was so rare that it was like a myth! It was called a golden pill because it was so rare, not because it was golden in color.
Once he swallowed the golden pill, Hao Ren felt warm inside and filled with energy. This pill was much more potent than the level 4 pill Xie Yujia made.
“Pa, pa, pa, pa…” Suddenly, the newer openings that appeared within Hao Ren’s dragon core abruptly closed, and the nature essence in those openings condensed and froze.
“I had helped you open tens of openings before, and now that they’re closed. I’ll count it as that I took back what I give you. The dragon core is your foundation. If you only rush to elevate your realm, your dragon core will collapse eventually,” old Grandma said.
Hao Ren was a bit shocked. He quickly used his Light Splitting Sword Shadow Scroll, and the pain that his meridian experienced when he used nature essence all disappeared. He thought that it was the sequela of a fierce battle; never did he know that it was the sign that his foundation was shaking.
This little elixir pill helped heal all the unseen injuries that Hao Ren had accumulated through battles. Although he was healed, his realm fell from mid-tier to low-tier Gen-level.
It just wasn’t realistic to assume that by fighting continuously, his realm could rapidly increase while causing him no harm. In fact, his dragon core was injured, and his meridian had wounds that were hard to detect!
Old Grandma didn’t tell Hao Ren that it was a level 9 elixir pill. She just glanced at Hao Ren and said, “I need to go to Eight Heaven and cultivate, and I don’t know when I’ll come out again. However, if I find that when I finish cultivating, something happened to Yujia, you’d be responsible. Even Lu Lili and Lu Linlin can’t stop me from hunting you down!”
Once she finished her words, a beam of green light rose into the sky.
There were no signs that old Grandma came to the roof of Profound Cultivation Palace.
Zhao Kuo stepped on the corners of the pagoda and climbed back up to the top of Profound Cultivation Palace.
“Old Witch. I’ll defeat you one day!” Zhao Kuo looked up to the sky and shouted at the beam of green light.
He had fallen to the ground and was paralyzed for a moment. He had spent a lot of energy climbing back up the rooftop, but old Grandma had left.
Hao Ren, who was standing next to Zhao Kuo, was sweating profusely. He thought, “Zhao Kuo is extremely brave to curse at a Soul Formation Realm cultivator!”
Suddenly, a beam of green light flew toward the Profound Cultivation Palace.
Zhao Kuo used his hands to block it, but he was hit by it again and pushed backward.
He landed on a team of patrolling soldiers, and five to six poor soldiers who were wearing armor were knocked to the ground.
When the soldiers saw it was Zhao Kuo, they quickly lifted him.
Zhao Kuo was in a bad mood and kept cursing.
Hao Ren stood on the roof of the Profound Cultivation Palace, and he turned around and looked at the fading green light and thought, “Old Grandma isn’t a tolerant person as well…”
After such a commotion, the dawn arrived.
A white beam of light was approaching the main gate of the East Ocean Dragon Palace.
“Who is it!” A general protecting the main gate said in a loud voice.
“Su Han from the Dragon God Shrine!” Su Han said her name and rushed into the East Ocean Dragon Palace.
Zhao Guang was still in his pajamas in the palace, reading documents.
“Dragon King, Su Han from the Dragon God Shrine wants to see you!” A guard shouted from the outside.
Zhao Guang stopped working and looked up as he asked, “Where is Fuma and Zhao Kuo?”
“They were drinking at the rooftop of the Profound Cultivation Palace last night, and they’re now at the practice field, watching the soldiers’ morning training,” the guard responded.
“They’re getting pretty close now.” Zhao Guang said to himself.
Then, he said loudly, “Take Su Han to the Yangxin Palace, and then get Premier Xia, Elder Lu, Elder Sun, and Elder Xingyue over here.”
“As you wish!” The guard quickly left.
Moments later, many were gathering at the Yangxin Palace. Zhao Yanzi, who was still half asleep, was dragged over by Zhao Hongyu. Xie Yujia, Lu Linlin, and Lu Lili were also brought over by Zhao Hongyu.
Su Han stood there quietly; she was waiting for Hao Ren.
Half a minute later, Hao Ren and Zhao Kuo both arrived at the Yangxin Palace.
Su Han finally moved.
Before she could reach Hao Ren, Lu Lili and Lu Linlin rushed over to him like butterflies. “Gongzi!”
Hao Ren was about to block them, but Lu Linlin stopped and asked in surprise, “Gongzi, what happened to your face?”
On Hao Ren’s face were two strip bruises, and the corner of his left eye was also a bit swollen.
As Hao Ren didn’t know how to explain it, Lu Linlin and Lu Lili had already started to inspect Hao Ren’s entire body. Lu Lili even opened Hao Ren’s shirt and discovered rows of bite marks on his shoulders.
“Who did this to Gongzi!” Lu Lili who was pure and simple asked immediately; she was mad.
Zhao Yanzi, who was standing next to Zhao Hongyu, woke up from her half-asleep state. Her face turned bright red, and she felt guilty.
Zhao Hongyu turned back and looked at Zhao Yanzi, and Zhao Yanzi’s face turned even redder.
Hao Ren, the most embarrassed of all, quickly put his shirt back on.
“Su Han, are you looking for me?” he asked.
“Yeah.” Su Han nodded lightly. She threw a token at Hao Ren and said, “This is the token for inspectors of the Dragon God Shrine. Because you showed exceptional performance during the exams, they promoted you to a level 3 inspector.”
Hao Ren caught the heavy token and felt his forehead burn a bit.
A three dark golden flames symbol lit up and then disappeared on Hao Ren’s forehead. This meant that Hao Ren was no longer an assisting inspector but an official inspector now.
Hao Ren held the token and sensed the auras in the palace more clearly. He could tell the realm of each person from their lights and strong auras. For instance, Premier Xia was top-tier Xun-level while Elder Lu and Elder Sun were low-tier Kun-level.
It looked like the token of inspectors were also a dharma treasures.
“There are still many other uses for the token. I’ll explain them to you in the future.” Su Han took out a golden box from her bracelet and said, “Here’s the Seven-Core Five-Color Lotus that you mentioned.”
When Su Han said those words, Zhao Kuo’s eyes brightened up.
Hao Ren noticed it and knew that Zhao Kuo entered the Dragon God Shrine’s general exams to get the Seven-Core Five-Color Lotus while practicing his skills.
Not only did Zhao Kuo stare at the treasure, Lu Linlin and Lu Lili also got excited. As long as Hao Ren possessed this treasure, his probability of getting to peak Qian-level increased drastically. He could also pass by the Heavenly Tribulation easier and increase levels quicker. As long as Hao Ren had this treasure, he could become a Heavenly Dragon, and they could stay by his side forever!
Hao Ren took the golden box from Su Han and carefully opened it.
Inside the box was a normal, grey lotus flower.
It was the size of the tip of the pinky finger, and one couldn’t sense nature essence from it. In other words, it looked like a withered lotus.
It looked much different from what Hao Ren had imagined. Its plain appearance was also why no inspector took it.
“Linlin, Lili, come over and look at this for me,” Hao Ren said.
“Ok!” Lu Linlin and Lu Lili went over speedily. They looked down on Hao Ren’s hands and carefully inspected the box before looking up and saying in a cheery tone, “Congratulations, Gongzi! This is the genuine Seven-Core Five-Color Lotus.”
“Ok…” Hao Ren closed to box with a satisfied look on his face. Then, he turned to Zhao Kuo and said, “Uncle Kuo, this is for you.”
Zhao Kuo had seen many things in his life, but he was shocked at this moment.
Lu Linlin and Lu Lili were also shocked. The Seven-Core Five-Color Lotus was an extremely rare treasure. They had looked everywhere and only discover one at the Dragon God Shrine.
Hao Ren’s act of gifting the Seven-Core Five-Color Lotus was equivalent to gifting his own future to Zhao Kuo!
On this treacherous journey of cultivation, cultivators took every opportunity they got and would even risk their lives to get ahead. Normally, no one would do what Hao Ren did and gift their chances away!
“Third Uncle!” Hao Ren shouted.
Zhao Kuo woke up from his shock after hearing Hao Ren’s shout. He looked at Hao Ren and saw the bruises on Hao Ren’s face again. He thought, “I beat him up last night, and he is still giving such a rare treasure to me?”
“Gongzi!” The Lu Sisters couldn’t just take the Seven-Core Five-Color Lotus away from Hao Ren, so they tried to stop him by shouting.
“Third Uncle is the one who has the most hope in charging into the Heavenly Dragon Realm. Giving the Seven-Core Five-Color Lotus to him is the better decision,” Hao Ren said.
“Well, since you’ve put it that way, I’ll take it with gratitude.” Zhao Kuo took the golden box from Hao Ren.
Lu Linlin and Lu Lili looked frustrated, and they pouted for a long time.
They tried so hard to get the Seven-Core Five-Color Lotus for Hao Ren, but he just gave it out as a favor.
“Why did you make me get this thing for you? What is it really?” Su Han asked Hao Ren.
Hao Ren didn’t respond, but the frustrated Lu Sisters responded before Hao Ren could, “This is the best-suited mystic crystal for Gongzi!”
Su Han didn’t know what this lotus was for, but her eyes opened wide after hearing the Lu Sisters’ explanation; she was shocked as well.
Any dragon cultivator was willing to sacrifice their everything for an excellent mystic crystal, but Hao Ren just gifted it away!
Other than Su Han, Zhao Guang, Zhao Hongyu, Elder Lu, Elder Sun, and Elder Xingyue all looked at Hao Ren in surprise.
“Third Uncle. If you can’t get to the Heavenly Dragon Realm, you’d be wasting this great treasure,” Hao Ren joked.
“Humph! I don’t need you to tell me!” Zhao Kuo put the golden box back into his storage ring.
Although Zhao Kuo didn’t say thanks, the gratitude was written in his heart. He owed Hao Ren his life for this.
Su Han calmed down and looked at Hao Ren. “There’s another thing. The Dragon God Shrine demoted Qin Shaoyang and sent him off to the cold and remote Northwest territory again. That’s why from now on, you and I will be the inspectors in charge of the East Ocean City.”
