“They are surnamed Ji?” Meng Qi was stunned for a moment.
“Yes.” Yun Qingyan gave her a slight glance before sweeping his eyes over the still unconscious devil cultivator. Meng Qi’s medicine took effect quite fast. Yun Qingyan remembered that this medicine was made using the formula she got from that Xue clan youngster.
“Let’s go and get the nether iron.” Yun Qingyan said again.
“Yes.” Meng Qi nodded. Her gaze swept across the unconscious woman’s face. This person’s spiritual sea had been broken into pieces, but her life was temporarily not in danger, so it would be no problem to leave her alone for a while. Moreover, if Meng Qi really wanted to completely repair her spiritual sea, she had to make the Five Spirits Cauldron first.
Meng Qi didn’t ask any more questions. Although she had just heard the same surname as Ji Wujiong, there were so many Ji surnames in the world, like a cultivator named Ji Wenyuan she once met before. Quickly putting the thought behind, Meng Qi turned her gaze towards the rockery hill ahead.
“The nether iron should be in the belly of the hill.” Yun Qingyan proceeded to walk ahead. Like a carving knife, the five primal aura in the Starfallen Sea had been crashing to the shore for hundreds, maybe even thousands, of years, creating the rockery hill before them.
In no time, Yun Qingyan arrived in front of the hill. He raised his head slightly, looking at the bare hill ahead.
Meng Qi also walked next to him, standing side by side.
Yun Qingyan glanced at her, then turned his gaze back to the rockery hill. He looked at the not-so-high hill before them and said to Meng Qi, “Some arrays don’t have to be drawn on the ground, as long as they have enough spiritual aura to form.”
“Huh?” Meng Qi was startled. Before she could react, Yun Qingyan had begun his movements. The man raised his right hand, brushing his slender fingers lightly. Wherever Yun Qingyan’s fingers passed, a very faint light remained in the air. His movement was fast but not too fast, just enough for Meng Qi to watch clearly, as if he was deliberately setting his speed to match her. But he was not slow either. In a blink of an eye, a complete array was formed mid-air.
Just like when facing a master swordsman. No matter how fast he stroked his sword, one could see the trace of light his movement left behind. However, no matter how clearly one could see the trace of light, the sword itself was too fast to avoid.
Yun Qingyan took out a few spirit stones.
Meng Qi: “…Profound-grade spirit stones!”
Meng Qi herself had used profound-grade spirit stones in her arrays a few times before, but those were during a crisis where she had no other choice. In a normal situation, using seventh or eighth-grade spirit stones was already luxurious enough.
The array made of faint white light was immediately activated by the spirit stones, releasing a brilliant light. When Yun Qingyan raised his fingers, the white light rushed towards the hill at lightning speed.
Is he going to…
Before Meng Qi could finish her thought, there was a loud ‘bang.’ Most of the hill was blown up, flying countless rock shards into the air.
At the same time, Meng Qi felt a touch. Yun Qingyan’s hand wrapped around her waist, backing her away and protecting her from the blast.
…It turns out that Sovereign Qingyan wants to blow up the hill!
Yun Qingyan put Meng Qi down, took a step forward, and half covered her body behind his back. Meng Qi tilted her head slightly and looked ahead. All of these happened in the blink of an eye. The rockery hill was blasted into countless pieces and fell haphazardly into the Starfallen Sea. The five primal aura surged up violently, as if wanting to devour everything. In just a moment, all the falling rocks were completely engulfed, and the Starfallen Sea returned to its initial calmness.
Meng Qi couldn’t help but be stunned. Her eyesight was good, and thus she clearly saw what happened to the falling rocks after they made contact with the Starfallen Sea. Instead of sinking to the bottom of the sea, they were completely devoured by the five primal aura in an instant, probably becoming a part of the Starfallen Sea thereafter.
Meng Qi swallowed her saliva. She initially thought it was good to have such an abundant source of five primal aura, but after watching this scene, she finally understood why any excessive thing would bring harm.
“No wonder Sovereign Qingyan said that too much five primal aura can tear apart a spiritual sea instead of healing it.” Meng Qi raised her head to look at Yun Qingyan and murmured, “When too much five primal aura gathered, their effect is too intense.”
Yun Qingyan nodded slightly and continued walking towards the rockery hill that was almost completely leveled by him. Meng Qi hurriedly followed behind, looking at the surroundings with amazement.
Sovereign Qingyan is really amazing!
Meng Qi knew well how powerful this person was, but every time she witnessed his mightiness, she couldn’t help but be amazed again and again. ‘With a lift of his finger, he levels the entire mountain’ — this sentence was still an understatement.
Countless black stones with metallic lusters were scattered at the foot of the leveled hill. Meng Qi walked towards the black stones and leaned over to take a closer look. These stones were actually brown in color, but they were inlaid by many black crystals about the size of a thumb, with sharp edges and corners.
“Is this the nether iron?”
“Yes.” Yun Qingyan replied, “These much should be enough for you.”
“I understand.” Meng Qi promptly took out the medical knife from her storage bag. This silver knife looked fragile, but was actually quite tough and sharp.
“Try using the Yinyue Sword Technique.” Yun Qingyan instructed.
“Okay.” Meng Qi replied. When swinging the knife, she used the moves she learned from the Yinyue Sword Technique. Sure enough, the moment Meng Qi’s knife made contact with the stones, the nether irons embedded in it were excavated intact.
“Although this technique is useless to defend yourself against enemies, it is still barely useful for mining.” Yun Qingyan’s tone was indifferent, “Meng Qi, since you can use arrays, you don’t need to learn sword techniques or attack spells to defend yourself. The arrays are enough for you.”
“I understand.” Meng Qi continued to dig out all the nether iron she could see. She happily put them all away in her storage space, and only then did she remember to say: “Sovereign Qingyan, I will clean these irons before sending them to you.”
“They are useless for me.” Yun Qingyan said, “You should keep them all to refine the Five Spirits Cauldron.”
“Thank you, Sovereign Qingyan.” Meng Qi bowed respectfully.
