Tempered Immortal - Chapter 232: Wood Spirit Fruit
“This is the sect master’s order. There must be a deeper meaning in it. As juniors, we don’t need to think too much. Just do your jobs well.” The one who spoke was a square-faced cultivator, and judging from the position he’s sitting in, he should be their leader.
“Yes, Senior Brother!” The fair-skinned cultivator quickly shut up and didn’t dare to say anything more.
Then the ball of light shook and no longer paid attention to Lin Xuan. A different scene appeared, and another Foundation Establishment Stage cultivator was introduced…
Following the young woman who claimed to be Zhang Xiaodie, they walked for about several hundred meters. The front suddenly brightened up, and an oval hall came into view.
Although it was in the depth of the mountain, the four walls of the hall were inlaid with fist-sized luminous pearls, illuminating the place as if it was daytime.
Lin Xuan nodded as she moved aside, he scanned the hall with his Spiritual Sense and frowned slightly.
There was nothing in the hall. However, there were dozens of cultivators wearing different clothes and colors, each one’s cultivation base was not weak, and all were in the Foundation Establishment Stage.
Those people heard the footsteps and looked over.
Their expressions were not friendly and even faintly contained hostility.
When Lin Xuan saw this scene, he murmured awkwardly in his heart, but on the surface, he of course wouldn’t show it. And when he carefully looked around, he actually saw an acquaintance.
At this time, the young man was waving at him excitedly.
Lin Xuan also walked over with a smile on his face. His behavior attracted the attention of the nearby cultivators. Because everyone here was cold and silent, while the two were in contrast.
However, after seeing that the two were only in the Foundation Establishment Initial Stage, the others turned their heads with sarcasm and ignored them.
“Lin Xuan, I didn’t expect you to come here too.” Tian Xiaojian sounded very affectionate as if he were a friend he hadn’t seen for many years.
“Same here,” Lin Xuan also smiled very eagerly.
“Haha, I just wanted to broaden my horizons. The trade fair set up for experts at the Foundation Establishment Stage is different from that for the higher level cultivators. Coincidentally, I have some savings with me and hope that I can buy the things I like,” Tian Xiaojian scratched his head and said shyly.
Lin Xuan’s heart skipped a beat, and he asked in surprise, “Are all the cultivators here to attend the advanced level trade fair?”
“I guess so. But as far as I know, only three Foundation Establishment Stage cultivators are allowed to enter each time.”
“Three?” Lin Xuan frowned, there were tons of people in front of him.
Seeing his expression, Tian Xiaojian smiled slightly. “Of course, it is necessary to go through some screening. However, the conditions proposed by the Heavenly Vision Sect each time are different. I wonder what tricks they’ll play this year.”
While the two were talking about it, they heard a bang. The stone door in front of them opened and a person walked out.
This person was about forty years old, he wore a yellow robe, had thick eyebrows and big eyes. He possessed an imposing aura, and his cultivation base was at the Foundation Establishment Stage Great Perfection.
He glanced at everyone in the hall and cupped his fists.
“My name is Zhou Hai. Welcome to Heavenly Vision Mountain. Since everyone is here, you must want to participate in the Trade Fair for Core Formation Stage Seniors. “
“Although we want to meet your requirements, the Cultivation World is a place where strength is the most important. If we let you all join in, it would be too crowded. I’m afraid that the Core Formation Stage seniors who come from afar will be dissatisfied, so According to the rules of the past, only three lucky fellows can be selected. “
As Zhou Hai said here. He paused and looked at everyone’s reaction. As a result, a few cultivators showed surprise and dissatisfaction. The others all were expressionless. It seemed that most of the people here had already known the rules. Seeing that the other cultivators were all silent, those few people shut up wisely.
“Well, since you have no objection, then I will tell you the conditions for this screening.”
At this critical moment, all the cultivators’ expressions became solemn and they listened carefully. Of course, one or two of them might have had something to rely on, showing a look of indifference.
Although Lin Xuan also stared ahead, he could see everyone’s reactions from the corner of his eyes.
Zhou Hai flipped his right hand over, and a fist-sized fruit appeared in the palm of his hand. The fruit looked a bit like a pear of the mortal world, but its outer layer was blue and looked unremarkable. And only a faint amount of Spiritual Qi was emitted from it.
“This is called the Wood Spirit Fruit. It’s not a treasure of Heaven and Earth, and can only slightly strengthen your body after eating it. However, although the Wood Spirit Fruit is ordinary, it’s something that is unique only to my Heavenly Vision Mountain. It’s absolutely not available in the outside world.”
All the cultivators were startled. They didn’t know why Zhou Hai suddenly took out the Wood Spirit Fruit, but they didn’t open their mouths and waited quietly for the other party to continue.
“In a while, I will randomly divide you all into three groups. Each person in a group will be sent to the place with several Wood Spirit Fruits in each area. Everyone’s task is to try to collect as many of them as possible. The time limit is three hours, and the person who picks the most in each group will get to enter the exchange. Of course, In addition to searching for other Wood Spirit Fruits, each Fellow Daoist should also pay attention to not being robbed of their fruits by others. Otherwise, it will also be counted as a loss.”
Hearing the last sentence, all the cultivators looked at each other and their faces became very gloomy. Although Zhou Hai’s words were euphemistic, the meaning was very obvious.
Don’t let your fruits be taken by others. In other words. you can grab someone else’s things at will.
It was obvious that they wanted everyone to kill each other?
Was there a mistake? It was just a qualification to participate in the Trade Fair, and they were not vying for any Magic Artifacts or Spirit Tools. How could they risk their lives for it?
Although the Cultivation World is bloody, this reason was too outrageous. Was there a conspiracy?
