“Fortunately, I accidentally obtained Gusta’s fleshly core deep underground on the Desolate Plane, or increasing my Chaotic Force really would not be easy,” Jian Chen thought. Of course, the Tian Yuan clan had become wealthy enough to support his increase to the limits of the fifteenth layer after inheriting part of the wealth from several peak organisations on the Cloud Plane.
However, if he did that, the Tian Yuan clan would definitely have to pay a tremendous price. It would directly impede the development of the entire clan.
Possessing Gusta’s fleshly core made things completely different. Not only was there no reason for him to worry about a lack of energy, but the energy in the fleshly core was even enough for him to last until the sixteenth or even seventeenth layer.
After all, this was all the energy within a Ninth Heavenly Layer Grand Prime. It was more than enough to satisfy his Chaotic Body right now.
Jian Chen sat there without moving at all. He was solemn like a meditating monk. Only the fleshly core he held in his hand constantly seeped out with extremely-pure energy, which Jian Chen rapidly absorbed subsequently.
The chaotic neidan in his dantian immediately began to swell up at a visible rate. The Chaotic Force inside grew more and more abundant.
On the nameless star, there was nothing like the passage of days or seasons. Everything seemed the same. As a result, it was virtually impossible to sense the passage of time.
Jian Chen was completely engrossed in cultivation. He forgot about time and forgot about himself. He lost all contact with the outside world.
This place was extremely safe. When he cultivated here, there was absolutely no reason for him to be like how he was in the past, constantly remaining cautious of the outside world.
With that, even Jian Chen himself had no idea how much time had passed. However, the chaotic neidan in his dantian had already swelled to half the size of its peak state. The Chaotic Force inside was extremely abundant.
At this moment, Jian Chen, who was completely engrossed in his cultivation, seemed to sense the tugging of a mysterious power, which forced him to rouse instinctively.
As soon as he opened his eyes, he saw a disheveled, beggar-like old man covered in dirt sitting in front of him. His eyes that seemed as deep as the starry sky stared straight at him.
“Greetings, senior Wind!” Jian Chen stowed Gusta’s fleshly core away and immediately clasped his fist and bowed at the old man.
Senior Wind said nothing. Instead, he opened his hand, and the fleshly core that Jian Chen had just stored away in his Space Ring immediately appeared above senior Wind’s hand.
Senior Wind stared at the fleshly core in his hand, and his gaze became mixed for a moment. He gently murmured with his hoarse voice, “Gusta… After so many years, I’d actually still come across a trace of you…”
Senior Wind’s emotions rippled slightly. He stared at Gusta’s fleshly core for a while, and only then did he look at Jian Chen. He said hoarsely, “Where did you obtain Gusta’s fleshly core?”
“Deep underground on the Desolate Plane…” Jian Chen began describing everything he had seen underground on the Desolate Plane without holding back any of the details, including the Bloodtear Grand Exalt’s arrival. He hid absolutely nothing.
However, when he recalled the indescribable pressure that the Bloodtear Grand Exalt gave off when he first encountered him, he could not help but shiver from the depths of his soul.
He had encountered more than one Grand Exalt so far. Back then in the Neptunean Divine Palace, he had merged with a sliver of the Samsaric Immortal Exalt’s soul. However, the Samsaric Immortal Exalt had intentionally concealed his aura, which was why the pressure of a Grand Exalt he felt from the Samsaric Immortal Exalt was not as great as the Bloodtear Grand Exalt.
That was the case despite the fact that he had also been facing a clone of the Bloodtear Grand Exalt back then.
“Stop thinking!” Suddenly, senior Wind barked aloud. His voice was like rolling thunder, making Jian Chen’s head rumble. His soul leapt up violently, and all of his thoughts were interrupted.
The Wind Venerable was solemn. “Remember, when you mention a Grand Exalt’s name, you must never, ever think about them, or the Grand Exalt will sense it. If you’re weak and your contact with the ways is shallow, Grand Exalts might not necessarily sense it. However, your cultivation has already reached the Primordial realm, and your contact with the ways is already quite deep. If you mentioned the Grand Exalt’s name and think about the Grand Exalt, it will resonate with the heavenly ways unknowingly, allowing the Grand Exalt to sense it.”
“The names of Grand Exalts cannot be mentioned without good cause. However, once it is mentioned, you must hide yourself and sever all connections…”
“Yes, senior Wind. I understand now.” Jian Chen accepted that with a modest mindset. At the same time, he became even more fearful towards people of that cultivation realm.
“Senior Wind, is the realm that Grand Exalts reside in above the realm of Grand Primes?” Jian Chen asked. He had never been able to get an answer to questions like this from the sword spirits. In the past, the sword spirits had once said that Grand Exalts were also Grand Primes.
But afterwards, as his strength increased and he climbed higher and higher, coming into contact with a vaster and vaster world, Jian Chen gradually began to develop doubts. He doubted whether so-called Grand Exalts had actually surpassed the realm of Grand Primes and stepped into a higher level.
He had been in contact with both Grand Exalts, sovereigns of the world that had become embodiments of the heavenly ways, as well as Ninth Heavenly Layer Grand Primes. However, the two gave Jian Chen the feeling that they were experts of completely different realms.
Jian Chen’s question made senior Wind sink into a lengthy period of silence. Only after a long time did senior Wind suck in a deep breath. His eyes shone with a strange light as he stared at Jian Chen, saying, “Actually, you should ask the Azulet sword spirits this question. After all, they have once accompanied a Grand Exalt, so they obviously have the most say over this.”
Senior Wind pointed out the existence of the sword spirits so frankly that Jian Chen immediately became shocked. His expression changed rapidly.
Senior Wind seemed to notice how nervous Jian Chen felt. He could not help but chuckle. “You don’t have to be so nervous. We, the Spiritsages, don’t have any irreconcilable grievances with the Immortals’ World. Although the Spiritsages had once participated in a war against the Immortals’ World, you can only call it a small skirmish when you compare it to the losses the various major organisations of the Saints’ World have caused us.”
“We can even let go of our great grievance with the Saints’ World, so let alone the Immortals’ World…”
“Of course, that’s only limited to our Spiritsages. Our Spiritsages can forgive the Immortals’ World, but that doesn’t mean the other organisations of the Saints’ World can. As a result, you still have to hide them carefully in front of others.”
Senior Wind spoke sincerely. His tone was amiable and extremely friendly.
“Senior Wind, can all Ninth Heavenly Layer Grand Primes detect the existence of the sword spirits?” Jian Chen’s heart tightened as he asked the question that worried him the most.
Senior Wind shook his head. “No, definitely not. Your cultivation realm can no longer be considered as low. Coupled with how the sword spirits are hiding themselves, probably no one can detect their existences apart from Grand Exalts. The reason why I can detect their existences is because I’m a little different from the past now.”
