Chapter 2791: The Glazed Fruit of Scarlet Blood
“This vice hall master is here. Hahaha, I only came to get an understanding of what was going on, to see whether your organisations outside could actually fulfil our fifth divine hall’s request or not, but I never thought you would’ve already brought it in. The Hundred Saint City really hasn’t disappointed us.”
Just as the envoy from the Heavenly Lightning clan was about to venture to the capital city of the Darkstar race to invite over the upper echelon of the fifth divine hall, clear laughter suddenly rang out from outside the Pantheon Divine Hall. It possessed immense power and great dignity, accompanied by the pressure that belonged to the Primordial realm.
Jian Chen recognised the voice instantly to be the weakest out of the three vice hall masters of the fifth divine hall, Bing Yuan.
It was exactly because he was the weakest in the fifth divine hall that he ran errands for various matters. He was basically tasked with all the miscellaneous matters in the fifth divine hall that required someone important to handle.
The eyes of the prodigies from the Heavenly Lightning clan and the Jade Pill sect lit up. Lei Yun could not help but laugh aloud. “So it’s sir vice hall master! We’ve failed to welcome you from afar, so please forgive us.”
Before Lei Yun had even finished talking, an extra person appeared in the Pantheon Divine Hall silently. He was a vice hall master of the fifth divine hall, Bing Yuan.
Apart from Jian Chen, no one present sensed Bing Yuan’s arrival, much less when he entered the Pantheon Divine Hall. When everyone discovered Bing Yuan’s existence, they found him standing there at perfect ease, as if he had stood there for a very long time already.
Bing Yuan ignored all the prodigies present. The moment he appeared in the divine hall, his gaze had been fixed on Lei Yun. He did not even look at the other people.
It was as if the cultivators within the Hundred Saint City were absolutely nothing in his eyes. If it were not for completing the mission his hall master had given him, he would not even want any contact with these cultivators.
“What our fifth divine hall requires are heavenly resources or pills that have reached God Tier and can heal the soul. Has the item your Heavenly Lightning clan brought in really fulfilled our request?” Bing Yuan’s gaze was locked on Lei Yun. He slowly released the pressure of the Primordial realm, crushing down on Lei Yun like a mountain.
Although it seemed like a reminder, it was actually a warning. It was for everyone to understand that it was fine if they could produce nothing, but if they were to produce something, it had to satisfy the fifth divine hall. After all, the fifth divine hall was not an existence that could be toyed with.
All Lei Yun felt was a suffocating feeling. He was unable to breathe normally. His face immediately paled slightly.
He was just an early Godking, and he had broken through recently. Now that he had to endure the pressure of a Primordial realm expert, he felt much more strained than anyone else.
“Don’t worry, vice hall master. The item from our Heavenly Lightning clan definitely won’t disappoint you.” Lei Yun used everything within him to speak with great difficulty.
“Oh? Then I’ll have to wait and see. I hope you don’t disappoint me.” Bing Yuan slowly withdrew his pressure as his eyes shone with a sliver of eagerness.
None of the prodigies in the Pantheon Divine Hall said anything. All of their gazes gathered on Lei Yun, flickering with various thoughts.
For a moment, Lei Yun had become the point of focus.
Under everyone’s gazes, Lei Yun could not help but become slightly complacent. Afterwards, he patiently pulled out a jade box around a meter long from his Space Ring.
The moment the jade box appeared, the senses of over a hundred souls wrapped around it. As the jade box was not covered in any high level formation that could block out the senses of the soul, they easily penetrated the box.
However, when the owners of these senses detected what was in there, they were all slightly taken aback before becoming perplexed and confused.
Bing Yuan had sent in the senses of his soul too. He had also sensed the item in the jade box clearly, and he was also taken aback at first. However, his face then sank. Just when he was about to erupt with fury, Lei Yun’s voice rang out, “Please hold on, vice hall master. What you see right now is incomplete. Please wait a moment, vice hall master, and prepare to witness an unbelievable miracle.”
With that, Bing Yuan’s eyes shone. His eyes were filled with doubt as he stood to one side and remained silent.
Everyone in the Pantheon Divine Hall, including Jian Chen, became slightly curious, as they already knew that the heavenly resource in Lei Yun’s jade box had not reached God Tier. Instead, it had only reached the ninth grade of the Truth Tier.
If they were outside, then they could nurture it further and evolve it to God Tier. However, that would require an extremely lengthy amount of time, calculated in tens of millennia or even longer.
However, they were in the Darkstar World right now. Even if they ignored the limiting environment of the Darkstar World, which made it unsuitable for growing heavenly resources of the Saints’ World, could the fifth divine hall really wait that long for it to evolve?
“Don’t tell me the Heavenly Lightning clan has a way to make this ninth grade Truth Tier heavenly resource reach God Tier in an extremely short amount of time?”
Jian Chen was filled with doubt too. As a Primordial realm expert, he possessed vast knowledge, so he completely understood the difficulties of such a matter.
In the Saints’ World that was filled with experts, existences of great power and mastery could indeed complete some impossible feats if they were willing to pay the price, but this was the Darkstar World, a place affected by countless limitations.
Matters that could be achieved in the Saints’ World could not necessarily be achieved in the Darkstar World.
At this moment, Lei Yun opened the jade box and took out a small tree that was less than a meter tall. There was only a single, cherry-sized, red fruit on the tiny tree. It shone resplendently; it was almost crystalline, like a gemstone.
“The Glazed Fruit of Scarlet Blood. This is indeed a heavenly resource that can heal the soul. Though, I’m just very curious about how you’ll elevate this ninth grade Truth Tier Glazed Fruit of Scarlet Blood to God Tier, Lei Yun…” said Ping Yisheng of the Empirelotus Sword sect.
“Looking at its maturity, you’ll probably need several dozen millennia at the very least if you want this Glazed Fruit of Scarlet Blood to evolve into a God Tier heavenly resource,” said the leader of the Heaven’s sect.
Lei Yun smiled mysteriously and did not answer them. Instead, he pulled out another wooden box from his Space Ring, placing it carefully on the table. He performed a great bow in pure respect and sincerity towards the wooden box before opening it, removing three white fist-sized pieces of jade from within.
He placed the three pieces of jade around the Glazed Fruit of Scarlet Blood before taking out some blood-red soil from his Space Ring. He scattered the soil onto the three pieces of jade.
“Soil of Divine Blood!”
The moment the blood-red soil appeared, a series of cries immediately rang out in the Pantheon Divine Hall. All of them looked at the Soil of Divine Blood greedily.
The Heavenly Crane clan was not the only one that required the Soil of Divine Blood. Many peak organisations in the Saints’ World were in desperate need of it too, as all pills that were related to vitality and vital energies would undergo a qualitative transformation if the Soil of Divine Blood were added to their refinement process.
As a matter of fact, the Soil of Divine Blood was a primary, crucial material to some legendary, God Tier pills of higher grades.
