Chapter 390: Wan Sha Appears in The Flesh
‘The news has not been released yet," said Wanli Mingxuan. He had actually already gotten some news, apparently saying that one of them was a Wicked Patriarch. However, he had spent a lot of money to obtain such valuable information — he could not possibly give this away so easily with his glib talk, even if it were his benefactor. Rules were rules!
"That's a pity," said Yun Jiuge, putting on a pained look as if missing the chance to rob the Magic Cauldron.
"If Junior Yun Jiu really wants to know, I can help you make some inquiries," said Wanli Mingxuan, seeing that her appearance seemed genuine. He was willing to divulge some information to her, but at a price.
"No need for that. I'm not in the mood to pursue this matter right now." Yun Jiuge put down the teacup in her hand and looked directly at Wanli Mingxuan saying, "In fact, I came this time to ask if Senior Wanli has ever heard of the Fiendish Corpse Secret Realm?"
"The Fiendish Corpse Secret Realm only opens once every 100 years. Every Devilish Sect and Black Magic Sect will send their Elite Disciples to raid the Fiendish Corpse to collect the Fiendish Pearls. But you're still at the eighth level of the Qi Refining Stage, so it won't be your turn to go!" Wanli Mingxuan's expression was calm. There was nothing unusual.
"It's reasonable to say that I shouldn't go. But I can't defy Elder Mo Hua and Elder Bai Gu if they nominate me to go!" Yun Jiuge smiled bitterly.
"Clearly, they want to give you a hard time!" Wanli Mingxuan's face was full of sympathy.
Although Yun Jiuge had the protection of a Thousand-year-old Living Corpse, her days were difficult from being targeted by the Sect Elders.
"Yes, that's why I came to make discreet inquiries with Senior. Has Senior been in this Fiendish Corpse Secret Realm before?" Yun Jiuge asked again.
"I haven't been in it either. But I've heard from other Seniors who previously entered that the Fiendish Corpse is very difficult to deal with. You must go in a team to be safe, and you have to be cautious too." The Elders of the Yin Corpse Sect had already made it clear that they wanted to make life difficult for Yun Jiuge, so the team sent out would likely be detrimental to her too.
"Will we run into each other if we get into the Secret Realm?" asked Yun Jiuge, who was looking for reinforcements.
"The Secret Realm is very big so I can't say for sure. If we do encounter each other, I'll definitely cover you," Wanli Mingxuan said earnestly.
It was thanks to Yun Jiuge's help that he could come out of the Secret Realm. So naturally he would help if he could.
Besides, their Black Fiend Sect cultivated mainly Fiends. No matter how good Yun Jiuge's Thousand-year-old Living Corpse was, there was no conflict of interest and thus no danger. They only had to kill the Fiendish Corpses.
"I thank Senior Wanli in advance then. When will you return to the Yin Spiritual Mountains? Shall we travel together?" Yun Jiuge invited.
"I still have some matters to attend to here. If Junior Yun Jiu is anxious to go back, please go ahead first!" Wanli Mingxuan shook his head as he spoke. As the Young Master of Wanbao Building, it was better that he showed himself more.
"Sure. By the way, I came this time under the pretext of a Spiritual Retreat and sneaked out. Senior Wanli, please don't let this news get out," Yun Jiuge exhorted.
"Don't worry, I won't let it slip," said Wanli Mingxuan while nodding.
"Are you going back to Yin Corpse Sect now?" Zi Shang asked Yun Jiuge.
"Yeah, the earlier I go back to detoxify, the quicker my Cultivation can improve," replied Yun Jiuge. She was determined to obtain the last section of the treasure map in Fiendish Corpse Secret Realm.
Moreover, she had been on the road for a while. She was worried that something would go wrong at Yin Corpse Sect.
"Okay." Zi Shang unconditionally supported Yun Jiuge's decision.
Over at the Shi Clan in Zhong Province.
Mistress Shi sat on the throne with Yu Sha at her side. Together, they looked on at a middle-aged Scribe who was tied up tightly.
"Mistress Shi, I really haven't seen the Magic Cauldron in the Ruins. I've been trapped inside the Labyrinth the entire time. If the Ruins had not suddenly toppled over, I would not even be able to leave."
The Wicked Patriarch was wounded all over and drenched with blood. He was on his last breath.
At this moment, he was filled with endless regret. When he first heard that the Liu Sisters had come to Zhong Province, he rushed over without second thoughts. Not only did he not capture them, he got himself into such an unlucky situation.
"Grandmother, this man is dishonest. We'd better use the Soul Searching Technique!" Yu Sha said softly, standing next to Mistress Shi.
"Fine." Mistress Shi was also tired of listening to the Wicked Patriarch's useless words.
She was about to reach out to extract the Wicked Patriarch's soul when Yu Sha pulled her sleeves to stop her. Yu Sha took the initiative to tell Mistress Shi, "Grandmother, I recently made some headway in my Calamity Skills. Let me try!"
"Okay, I'll let you try then," Mistress Shi replied, greatly gratified.
Although her granddaughter's Cultivation was one level lower than the Wicked Patriarch's, there was no harm letting her try since Mistress Shi was at her side watching over.
Yu Sha slowly walked toward the Wicked Patriarch. Her pink dress was like a lotus swaying in the water. Her beautiful and delicate face wore a faint smile.
The Wicked Patriarch in the past always liked to torture beautiful young ladies like herself. But now when he saw Yu Sha, he felt terrified from the depths of his heart. He repeatedly begged for mercy saying, "Mistress Shi, I really didn't rob the Magic Cauldron. If you don't believe me, I can pledge an Inner Demon Oath. I'm willing to sign a Master and Servant Contract with you, as long as it's not…"
The Wicked Patriarch's eyes bulged out, and the rest of his words were stuck in the throat.
Yu Sha stood not far from where the Wicked Patriarch was. Her white as jade hands emitted black Fiendish Qi and a black aperture floated above. The Wicked Patriarch's soul was struggling frantically in the aperture.
"Good girl, it seems that your strength has greatly improved by training in the Ruins this time!" Mistress Shi looked pleasantly surprised. To manipulate a soul in the air required extremely precise controlling abilities. Even she herself could not easily do so.
Yu Sha did not respond to her grandmother's words. She squeezed the Wicked Patriarch's soul carefully to search for the information she wanted. Finally, it showed her the scene where Yun Jiuge made her appearance.
How did Goddess become a man?
Yu Sha slowly opened her eyes and the corners of her mouth revealed a slight smile. It was just right that her own body was female. Perfect.
"What is it? Any news of the Magic Cauldron?" Mistress Shi asked beside her.
"No news, he was really trapped in the Labyrinth the entire time," Yu Sha said as her fingers slightly moved and erased the scene with Yun Jiuge before she handed it to Mistress Shi.
"Well, I knew the man was pretending," said Mistress Shi after she searched the soul of the Wicked Patriarch and stuffed it into her Dragon Head Walking Stick.
"Grandmother is right in saying that. No evildoer would commit a deed with his own true face and that Wicked Patriarch doesn't have that ability anyway," Yu Sha echoed the words of Mistress Shi. In her mind she already knew that the Magic Cauldron had already made off with its owner.
"Never mind, let's put aside the Magic Cauldron. The most important thing now is for you to focus on the Fiendish Corpse Secret Realm. Our Shi clan only obtained two Amulets this time. Once you go inside, look for a safe place to kill more Fiendish Corpses. As long as you can obtain enough Fiendish Pearls, it won't be a problem for you to advance to Middle Foundation Establishment Stage after that," said Mistress Shi. She was not paying attention to her granddaughter's transformation and began to talk about the benefits of getting into the Fiendish Corpse Secret Realm.
Since the Fiendish Corpse Secret Realm only opened once in 100 years, it was extremely hard to get a few entrance Amulets from a few major Devilish Sects. But for those who could, the benefits were huge, especially the likes of the Shi clan which cultivated Fiendish Qi.
Mistress Shi herself only successfully completed her Core Formation after she had come out from the Fiendish Corpse Secret Realm back then.
The Magic Cauldron in the Ruins, however important, was still not as important as the Fiendish Corpse Secret Realm.
"Grandmother, rest assured that I will do well." The corners of Yu Sha's mouth curled up into a charming smile. Goddess, we'll meet again in the Fiendish Corpse Secret Realm.
