Chapter 1588: Nine Floors of Treasury
“You want to borrow the Star Sects power to antagonize the Luminaries, dont you” Xing Chen saw right through Lu Yuns intentions and dismantled his plan. “The sect will not involve ourselves with the conflicts of others.”
She waved a hand and left with Xing Heng.
Lu Yun rubbed his nose. Xing Chen was certainly a decisive character and left no room for discussion whatsoever. Brief contemplation, however, quickly provided the reason for her behavior.
She knew his identity and how hed broken free of his destiny. Shed wanted Xing Lan to stay by his side for a while and indirectly alter her destiny as well. However, hed shut his door in the girls face.
Xing Chen… seems to have a bit of a temper. Shed purposefully taken Xing Heng away when she discovered the situation here.
Lu Yun chuckled ruefully, not minding the matter. The Luminaries was worth keeping a watchful eye out for, but his primary goal for the moment was to disseminate dao.
“The Tome of Life and Death exorcized the resentment and curse from the withered wood, which means Im no longer a walking sack of misfortune.” Lu Yun stared off in the direction that Xing Chen had departed in. “But that isnt very reassuring either. Who knows what might happen to the book after its digested such a terrifying amount of bitterness and curse I should probably stay away from forming deep relationships for a while.
“Lets find a Principal Seventh Rank Lotus next and raise my soul force to grandmaster level.” He headed in the direction of Mount Buzhou.
The mountain was situated in the center of the World Star. Last time, itd seemed that Xing Shenzuo had brought Lu Yun to Mount Buzhou when hed actually done so under Ah Zhis control.
“Wait.” Lu Yun suddenly stopped. “The pair of eyes in Xing Wuliangs pupils isnt Xing Chens either. Whos borrowing his eyes to observe the Tomb of the Hallowed Emperor”
If it wasnt Ah Zhi, Xing Shenzuo, or Xing Chen, it would seem that powerhouses abounded in this sect. He hadnt even been able to determine how many Nihil World Sovereigns were present.
“I need to get my hands on a soul weapon after my soul force reaches grandmaster level.” Lu Yun continued making his way to the mountain.
Mount Buzhou was incredibly large. Hed visited Ah Zhis residence on his prior trip; the sects treasury was located on the same mountain. Since the Principal Seventh Rank Lotus was an incredibly precious spirit root, it should be stored there.
The Star Sects treasury was a massive tower nine floors tall. Each floor was a real world. It wasnt under heavy guard, just protected by its own rules. People could access the floors they had clearance for and would be blocked from entry if they werent authorized.
If there came an enemy so strong that the rules couldnt hold them off, death would be the only ending for any sect heavyweights that rushed to it. Ah Zhi had set the rules; simple Nihil World Sovereigns couldnt break them. Only someone whod set foot into sequence like her could force them open.
Lu Yun smoothly walked in without challenge.
“Thats strange… why does it feel like Ive been to someplace similar before” He found his surroundings oddly familiar when he observed the first floor.
Treasures and natural ingredients abounded on the first floor; connate treasures were dumped in piles like trash. He almost thought that hed returned to the world of treasures Yun Zhongzhi had created in the Tomb of the Hallowed Emperor.
Such was the accumulation of the entire sect throughout its long and illustrious history. However, Lu Yun wasnt gazing upon the wealth, but the world that comprised of the first floor. He found it so very familiar, like hed once been here.
“When did inner disciples have the right to enter the treasury” A surprised voice sounded in Lu Yuns ears. He turned around to see a young girl dressed in blue robes, sizing him up with curious bright eyes and gleaming teeth.
There was more than one treasury in the sect and each one was open to disciples. But this was the Mount Buzhou treasury; only genius disciples or sect elders had the authorization to enter. This treasury ordinarily saw very little foot traffic, so it was quite an unusual sight to see a regular inner disciple visit.
The young girl was also a supplemental grandmaster, but her cultivation level was only at the true nihil realm and she was very far away from World Manifest. Despite that, Lu Yun was highly surprised to discover that her soul force was more than ten times stronger than Xing Hengs.
“Who are you I dont think Ive seen you around before,” she asked when she saw that she had Lu Yuns attention.
“Inner disciple Feng Feifan greets this senior sister.” Lu Yun raised cupped fists.
“So youre Feng Feifan! Youre the one who shut his door in senior sister Xing Lans face!” the girl blurted out.
Lu Yuns cheek twitched with awkwardness. So that had become the story of him not inviting Xing Lan inside It seemed to eliciting a sizable repercussion.
“Thats me.” Lu Yun nodded.
“Im Su He, a true disciple of Xing Chen Mountain. Xing Lan is my senior sister,” the young girl introduced herself with a smile.
“Su He” Lu Yun paused. “Thats strange, all of the other true disciples have Xing as their surname. So why do you…”
“Because Im a World Star native,” Su He chuckled. “People born on the World Star are disciples at birth. We dont need to change our names even after we gain a master.
“Ah, yes, junior brother Feifan, youre in a lot of trouble. Senior brother Xing Lingkong says hes going to teach you a lesson after you turned senior sister Xing Lan down!” the girl continued gleefully. “Senior brothers always known that senior sister is a girl and fell in love with her a long time ago. He wont let you get away with insulting her.”
Lu Yun held his forehead.
“Do you know where the Principal Seventh Rank Lotus is” He couldnt be bothered with these things.
“The Principal Seventh Rank Lotus Its on the eighth floor, but only elders have the right to enter. You…” Su Heng trailed off; Lu Yun had already vanished.
“Hes really gone to the eighth floor” She blinked with incredulity. “They say that senior brother Xing Wuliang brought junior brother Feng Feifan back from the Eastern Planes. Theres a lot of people in the sect whove joined the Luminaries… they probably want to do something to him, dont they
“Senior brother Xing Lingkong…” Su He blushed when she thought of the handsome, dashing, and princely senior brother.
“Eh Wait wait, he really entered the eighth floor How” Her jaw dropped when Lu Yun didnt return to the first floor. “Hes not martial uncle Xing Shenzuos bastard son, is he And the martial uncle didnt accept him as a disciple because he didnt want to start gossip…” The girls mind roved in wild flights of fancy.-
