After a while, the old man with a kind face spoke first,
“Liu Ming, I didn’t expect you to gain so much. According to the rules, you can keep 1/3 of these treasures. In addition, you have made a great contribution to the sect this time, so you can choose 3 additional items. “
When Liu Ming was delighted at first, he immediately understood the hidden meaning of those words. His joyful face turned awkward.
Since these old sect guys said such words, it was not as simple as it seemed.
Sure enough, the old man with thick white eyebrows said,
“In my opinion, this Spirit Nurture Cauldron and 3 purple yuan fruit should be handed over to the sect. Nephew Liu is at the Pseudo Pellet State, and many of these spiritual herbs are very helpful for you to advance to the Real Pellet State. You can keep more of them. What do you think?”
Hearing this, Liu Ming couldn’t help but feel bitter in his heart. He didn’t expect to keep this Spirit Nurture Cauldron, but he obtained these purple yuan fruits at the risk of his own life. If it weren’t for the limited effect of eating directly and taking a long time to digest, he had already eaten them on the spot.
“Although these 12 beads are still embryos, they seem to be quite extraordinary. You also seem to have forcibly sacrificial refine 1 of them, but it’s still a semi-finished product. It is not easy to forge them all. Why don’t you hand them over… As for this Hell Ghost Yin Tree, it is quite suitable for you who practice the yin attribute technique, so I’ll leave it to you.” The old man with a kind face stroked his sleeve robe and said to Liu Ming.
Immortal Tian Ge and Elder Han didn’t say anything after hearing about it. They just turned to look at Liu Ming.
When Liu Ming heard that the old man with a kind face wanted to keep the Mountain River Pearl Embryos, he was anxious.
If he hadn’t seen the power of Mountain River Pearl before, he might still consider it, but how could he hand them over to the sect now?
As for the Hell Ghost Yin Tree, although Liu Ming also valued it very much, compared with Mountain River Pearl, the difference was a world apart. The demand for pure yin qi was not as important as he had almost mastered the Dragon Tiger Hell Prison.
“Liu Ming, if you have any other ideas, just say.” Immortal Tian Ge seemed to see through Liu Ming’s thoughts, and he asked.
“Reporting to sect master, I’m willing to hand over this Spirit Nurture Cauldron, but I want to keep these 12 beads.” Liu Ming said without any ambiguity.
“It would be fine if it’s just 1 bead, but this whole set of 12 embryos is really rare, so its value is very high… In addition, according to Tianci’s words, this Spirit Nurture Cauldron is related to an agreement with the Nature Work Sect. We still have to discuss with them on how to handle this treasure…” The old man with thick white eyebrows said after hesitating for a while.
“In this case, disciple is willing to give up the Hell Ghost Yin Tree, the star sandstone, and the extra 3 treasures. I just want to keep these 12 bead embryos, 2 purple yuan fruits, demonic crystal bead, some spiritual herbs that assist in advancing to the Real Pellet State and some dead beastkin eggs.” Liu Ming adde dfirmly after thinking about it.
Liu Ming knew very well that if he didn’t fight for it at this time, it would be impossible to get these items back when they fell into their hands.
The demonic crystal bead that could identify the talent of demons, since there were no real demons in the Middle Sky Continent, this bead was not very useful. Therefore, these old guys would not reject it.
When Immortal Tian Ge and Elder Han heard the words, they did not speak, but they looked at the other 2 and exchanged a glance.
“Since that’s what you have in mind, then we will discuss it later.” After the old man with a kind face looked at the old man with thick white eyebrows, they put down the things in their hands and walked toward the other treasures.
Because the Spirit Nurture Cauldron and other things were too dazzling, they didn’t pay much attention to the rest. After hearing Liu Ming’s words, they only remembered to check the rest carefully.
The 2 old men stopped in front of the pile of treasures, looked at them carefully and chatted with sound transmission.
When the old man with thick white eyebrows saw one of the dark and dull spiritual herb, his eyes flashed with joy. He immediately took it in his hand and checked it. The old man with a kind face also looked excited.
This was a gray spiritual herb that was about a foot long. At first glance, it looked like it was withered. There were hundreds of branches and leaves. There were some spirit patterns on the leaves, which were shimmering faintly.
When Liu Ming saw this, he couldn’t help but be overjoyed. This spiritual herb should come from Blood Ancestor’s avatar’s storage ring. Because he was in a hurry at the time, he didn’t have time to check what it was. Judging from the faces of the 2 old men, it should be a rare spiritual herb.
In this way, there would be more hope to keep the Mountain River Pearls and the purple yuan fruits.
After another half a quarter of an hour, the 2 old men finally finished checking the pile of materials.
“Nephew Liu, we have made a decision after we discussed it. If you leave all the materials here, you can take this set of 12 bead embryos, the spiritual herbs to assist in advancing to the Real Pellet State and those dead beastkin eggs. As for purple yuan fruit, we will leave 1 for you. After all, you are still young. How about I give you an extra 1 million contribution points as the reward for submitting such bountiful resources.” In the end, the old man with thick white eyebrows looked at Liu Ming faintly and said so.
Liu Ming only felt a faint sense of oppression. He couldn’t look directly into the eyes of the old man for a while. It seemed that there was no room for negotiation in this decision.
Although he only got 1 purple yuan fruit, he still got the 12 Mountain River Pearl Embryos which made him breathe a sigh of relief.
After all, in comparison, Mountain River Pearls were more important to him. As for the 1 million contribution points, it was quite timely for Liu Ming. Although he had already collected enough contributions to enter the Evil Ghost Way, with this extra 1 million points, he could make more adequate preparations before entering.
“Thanks to the 2 grand elders.” After much consideration, Liu Ming nodded in agreement.
The old man with a kind face and the old man with thick white eyebrows nodded in satisfaction after hearing the words.
Immortal Tian Ge and Elder Han looked at each other with a smile.
Although if they forced it with their status, the disciples would have to agree with it, this would a little inappropriate. Therefore, if Liu Ming could accept the deal voluntarily, it would be best.
After Liu Ming cupped his fists at them, he waved and collected a few spiritual herbs, purple yuan fruit, demonic crystal bead, and the Mountain River Pearl Embryoes into the Sumeru Ring.
When he collected the dead eggs of the three crown golden chicken, almost no one bat an eye at it as if they didn’t about this at all.
Seeing this, Liu Ming couldn’t help frowning secretly.
Even these Celestial State masters are unable to detect the strangeness of this egg, could it be that Xie’er and Fei’er made a mistake?
This thought was fleeting. He still decided to go to the place where spiritual beasts were raised in the sect to ask about it, then he would make another plan.
“By the way, you can also take some of these spirit gathering stones.” At this moment, Immortal Tian Ge said and waved his sleeves. A dozen green spirit stones flew toward Liu Ming.
Seeing this, Liu Ming naturally would not refuse. After thanking, he kept them into the Sumeru Ring.
After seeing Liu Ming collected the things, the old man with thick white eyebrows nodded with satisfaction to him. He flicked his sleeve and launched a green light into Liu Ming’s sect token.
The token trembled slightly. The sect contribution points on it had been increased by 1 million more.
“Thank you, grand elder!” Liu Ming cupped his fist respectfully at him, then he said goodbye to several elders and Immortal Tian Ge and left the underground hall.
In the following time, Long Yanfei also showed her gain in front of the 3 elders and Immortal Tian Ge. Although there were a few nice items, they were nothing compared to Liu Ming’s.
As an encouragement, the elders gave a high evaluation to Long Yanfei’s trip to the ruins, and they especially rewarded some elixirs that had some auxiliary effects on advancing to the Real Pellet State before sending her away.
After Long Yanfei left, they discussed for a while. Elder Han and Immortal Tian Ge also left after taking part of the items.
After a while, the underground main hall became empty, leaving only the 2 old men.
“Senior fellow apprentice, I didn’t expect Liu Ming to bring us such a big surprise. It seems that it was the most correct decision for you and me to let him enter the ruins.” The old man with thick white eyebrows said with a smile.
“This is also a chance for you and me. Our lifespan is only a few hundred years at most, and he actually found this spiritual herb that prolongs lifespan. The few gray li herbs are also rare healing elixir. If our old injuries are healed, maybe we have a chance to break through to the Mystic Comprehending State.” The old man with a kind face also laughed excitedly.
“As for the Spirit Nurture Cauldron, what do you think about it?” The old man with thick white eyebrows said with a gloomy face.
“This cauldron is a real treasure cauldron, which can increase the spirituality of the magic weapon. We can use it to refine our magic weapons first. Although this cauldron was promised to be handed over to the Nature Work Sect, the other party has not fulfilled the promise to send the corresponding resources. What’s more, this cauldron is not a treasure of the Nature Work Sect. Now it falls into our hands, I’m afraid that the resources agreed at that time are no longer enough. You and I don’t have to worry about it, just let those Mystic Comprehending State master’s juniors and master’s seniors decide on this.” The old man with a kind face said.
“Senior fellow apprentice is really wise. We should hurriedly refine these few gray li herbs into gray spirit pill.”
After they happily discussed, they disappeared from the underground main hall in 2 green lights.
TL: When can he forge the complete set of Mountain River Pearl though?
