“Staying here for a long time?” The black-robed woman stared blankly at Meng Qi, “But I…”
“Repairing spiritual sea is not an easy task.” Meng Qi continued, “With my current ability, it will take quite a time before I can do it.”
“Re-repairing… spiritual sea?” The woman repeated Meng Qi’s words in a daze. She knew the meaning of each of the words, but why was it so difficult to understand the whole sentence?!
The woman looked up at Meng Qi in disbelief, “Can… can my spiritual sea really be repaired?” Her throat was dry, and her voice was so hoarse that she could barely speak, but there was obvious excitement in her voice: “But my spiritual sea has been shattered into pieces, all my aura is gone, and even my inner core has ceased to function.”
“I can’t give a guarantee, but I can try it.” Meng Qi said.
“T-thank you very much, Miss!” The black-robed woman’s lips trembled slightly, and her eyes reddened. She had a strong mentality and had experienced countless adversities before, but facing the destruction of her spiritual sea, her heart could no longer maintain its usual calmness. Now, Meng Qi had given her hope. Although she knew that this hope was so small, it was equivalent to a glimmer of light inside pitch darkness, and she would definitely do anything she could to chase after the light.
“My name is Yewu.” The black-robed woman said, “May I know your name, Miss?”
“Meng Qi.” Meng Qi replied. She got out of bed and said, “I’ll try my best. You stay here and recuperate.”
“Excuse me, Miss Meng Qi…” Yewu asked, “Where am I now?”
“I can only tell you that we are still in the Starfallen Sea.” Meng Qi said, “Since I call you Yewu, you call me just by Meng Qi. No need to be so polite.”
“Okay, Meng Qi.” Yewu replied.
Now that the matter had temporarily settled, Meng Qi’s mind finally turned to other things. She suddenly had a heart palpitation, as if she had forgotten something important…
Right! Beyond The Heaven! She had promised Sikong Xing and the others that she would go to Beyond the Heaven once every twelve hours to report her safety!
Meng Qi quickly looked around. Yewu’s condition was still so bad that she couldn’t let her move room. “Have a good rest.” Meng Qi said, “I still have something to do.”
Leaving those words, Meng Qi turned around and left the room.
After returning to the manor, Yun Qingyan returned to his room. There were indeed other rooms in the manor, but without asking for Yun Qingyan’s permission, Meng Qi didn’t dare to use them. With this thought in mind, she knocked on the opposite door.
After a knock, the door opened without a sound. “Come in,” Yun Qingyan’s voice came from the room.
Meng Qi hurriedly walked in. When she entered, she was met with the white-robed man sitting on the bed, pointing at both the sky and the ground with his fingers. Faint starlights poured into his body from the tips of his fingers, making him look very mystical.
“Meng Qi?” Yun Qingyan opened his eyes. The starlights kept pouring down. Inside the pair of azure eyes, stars in the form of the Big Dipper constellation twinkled brilliantly.
Is he in the middle of cultivation? Meng Qi stared blankly.
“What’s the matter?” Yun Qingyan slowly closed his eyes again.
“Sovereign Qingyan.” Meng Qi hurriedly closed the door behind her and said, “Yewu… I mean, the injured devil realm’s war maiden — is currently resting in my room. Can I use another room?” Meng Qi hid nothing from Yun Qingyan: “I have to go to Beyond The Heaven.”
“Oh?” Yun Qingyan opened his eyes slightly, “You can use this room.”
Meng Qi: “…Okay.”
Choosing a place farthest from Yun Qingyan, Meng Qi took out the Beyond The Heaven jade slip. All in all, it’s probably better if she stayed here — or so Meng Qi thought. Although it was unlikely for Yun Qingyan to encounter any problems and even more unlikely for her to be able to give any significant help, she felt more at ease staying by his side.
Meng Qi held the jade slip and slowly closed her eyes. After a flash of light, she was already standing outside Beyond The Heaven City.
In the room, Yun Qingyan snorted coldly, and the movement of the starlights around his body became more intense. He opened his eyes quietly and looked at Meng Qi.
Going to Beyond The Heaven again and in such a hurry? Who is she going to see?
Chu Tianfeng? Or Qin Xiumo?
After arriving at Beyond The Heaven, Meng Qi first sent a message to Xue Jinwen and the others via her nameplate, reporting her safety. Except for this, Meng Qi had another purpose for coming to Beyond The Heaven, which was to find the remaining materials she needed to refine the Five Spirits Cauldron. Among the five materials, except for the nether iron and the Buddhist sand that could be found in the Starfallen Sea, the remaining blazing feather, azure dragon crystal, and primeval chaos vine were all rare treasures that could only be found in either Devil Realm or the Demon Realm. Having once bought a blazing feather at the Heaven Auction House, Meng Qi decided to try her luck first to see whether she could find the three remaining materials from the same place.
The teleportation array instantly sent Meng Qi to the floating island of the Heaven Auction House. At this time, the floating island was quiet because the auction was only held once a month, with additional auctions sometimes held when special or extremely rare items became available.
Meng Qi walked all the way without encountering a single cultivator. It was also empty outside the auction house, with only a staff in charge standing outside the building. When the staff saw Meng Qi, he was obviously startled, but he quickly went to greet her with a smile: “Good afternoon, Fellow Daoist. Is there anything I can help you with?”
“Yes.” Meng Qi nodded: “Excuse me, but when will the next auction be held? Can I know in advance if the items I need will be auctioned?”
“Well…” The man pondered, looking Meng Qi up and down. The girl looked very young, dressed in a simple blue robe that made her very slender, even a bit thin. From her face alone, she looked to be only seventeen or eighteen, making her but just a little girl. However, the fact that she could get here without being stopped proved that her identity was definitely not ordinary.
The man quickly smiled again: “Of course you can.” As he spoke, he took out a bamboo slip and said, “Fellow Daoist, please inform us of the items you need. If any of those got auctioned in one of the three auction houses, we would notify you in advance.”
“Okay.” Meng Qi took the bamboo slip and wrote the blazing feather, azure dragon crystal, and primeval chaos vine on it. After pondering for a while, she also added the spirit devouring grass and the everyday fruit needed to refine the Starlight.
Meng Qi returned the bamboo slip to the man and smiled, “Thank you, Fellow Daoist.”
“You’re welcome.” The man smiled and said, “Does Fellow Taoist know? This service needs you to pay a certain amount of spirit points.”
“Huh?” Meng Qi indeed didn’t know. From Xue Jinwen, she learned the various usage of spirit points, but she didn’t expect that the points could even be used on such a convenient service. Meng Qi felt a little remorseful. If she had known this earlier, she would have come here from the beginning!
