Hundreds of kilometers away, Bi Lin took out a Mystical Thunder Sword from her Heaven-Earth Pouch and slashed it toward a massive, towering tree .
At this point, something strange happened . The skyscraping tree grew countless vines that flapped and unfurled toward Bi Lin .
“Little tree, be obedient . Big Sis will be gentle . ” Bi Lin was beaming all over but the Thunder Sword in her hands did not slow down in the slightest . Bolts of thunder and lightning spun around and turned into blades that sliced down .
“Zap zap zap”– the branches of the massive, towering tree were instantly torn apart .
When they broke apart, the splintered branches swiftly shrank back and condensed into a black seed .
This black seed tried to flee with astonishing speed and had covered dozens of kilometers in an instant .
However, how could its speed possibly compare to Bi Lin who was a Boundless Stage powerhouse?
With a “swoosh”, Bi Lin turned into a flash of thunder and appeared beside the seed . With a swipe of her right hand, she had seized this black seed .
“I didn’t expect that the Soul Pagoda’s fifth level would have something like the Tree Spirit . Today’s harvest isn’t bad indeed . ” A satisfied grin stretched across Bi Lin’s lips as she eyed the black seed in her hand . The black seed kept jumping, trying to escape but it could not struggle free from the binds of a Boundless Stage fighter . She closed her right hand and kept it safely . With a sweep of her Psyche, she saw that Ye Chen and Little Wingsy had swept up the bodies of the six Daemon King Rank Spirit Beasts .
“There’s so much treasure in the Soul Pagoda’s fifth level, but these two little boys only took a few Spirit Beasts’ bodies . ” Bi Lin shook her head, thinking that Ye Chen and Little Wingsy were rather undiscerning . However, she did not know that secret technique jade slips were concealed within the bodies of these Spirit Beasts . She assumed that these Spirit Beasts were like the rest, whose core metals were Tianyuan ancient coins .
Bi Lin’s Astral Body filled the entire fifth level of the Soul Pagoda . Something purple glinted and reflected in her eyes and her mouth twitched upward in a slight smirk .
No matter where Ye Chen and Little Wingsy went, they could feel that ever-present Psyche . The Psyche of a Grand Supreme combatant was too formidable, practically filling up the entire Soul Pagoda . When would Ye Chen be able to reach such a powerful attainment level?
Ye Chen and Little Wingsy were about to collect the other spirit artifacts when Bi Lin’s voice rang out crisp and clear beside their ears . “Little boys, we’re going to the Soul Pagoda’s sixth level now . Big Sis has gotten almost all of the spirit artifacts on the fifth level . ”
They could hear from Bi Lin’s tone that she was quite satisfied at her haul .
Ye Chen felt rather despondent . He had only gathered a few Spirit Beast’s bodies . From the looks of it, Bi Lin must have collected quite a few treasures .
“Little boy, do you want Big Sis to give you some good items?” Bi Lin’s gently teasing voice drifted past Ye Chen’s ear like the murmuring of sweet nothings between lovers .
“There’s no need for that . Many thanks, Big Sis,” Ye Chen hurriedly responded . When the fox preaches, take care of your geese . Who knew what this woman was really plotting? Plus, even if Ye Chen wanted something, Bi Lin would not possibly give him the truly good stuff .
“Swoosh swoosh swoosh”– three thunder flashes disappeared within the large black door at the end of the Soul Pagoda’s fifth level .
Just as Bi Lin, Ye Chen, and Little Wingsy entered the sixth level of the Soul Pagoda, another group entered the fifth level . It was Cang Lu, Fu Yu, and the rest . Furthermore, there were Daemon King and Godly Venerable experts from other factions .
Among the various major factions that had come to the Soul Pagoda, the two strongest individuals were Bi Lin and Cang Lu . These factions did not expect that so many treasures would show up in the Soul Pagoda and had only sent a few powerhouses . When they later discovered the abnormal situation in the Soul Pagoda, it was too late . They hurriedly reported to their headquarters but the dispatched powerhouses would not be arriving for some time .
The moment Cang Lu entered the Soul Pagoda’s fifth level and saw the state of things, his face instantly darkened . He looked across the distance . The corpses of Spirit Beasts were littered everywhere . Peerless Powers could not fill the entire Soul Pagoda’s fifth level with their Psyche like how Grand Supreme fighters could, but their eyes were still extremely penetrating, able to see everything for dozens of kilometers around .
All the treasures had been looted clean!
“D*mn woman! I’m pissed off!” Cang Lu was in a rage . He had been behind Bi Lin by one step . Plus, Bi Lin had the secret technique, Thunder Flash of the Thunder Beast Clan . He had arrived too late . All the good stuff had been seized by Bi Lin!
“I’ll go and stop that woman . The rest of you, catch up!”
“Yes, Grand Supreme Elder!” Fu Yu and Liu Ming immediately bobbed their heads .
“Zoom”– Cang Lu’s figure flashed and he turned into a streak of white light, cutting through the air .
When they saw Cang Lu leaving, both Fu Yu and Liu Ming followed close behind . The Godly Venerable and Daemon King fighters from the other factions exchanged glances and ran after him too . Backup from headquarters had not arrived yet . Thus, they could not possibly win against the likes of the Tribunal Council and the Thunder Beast lineage . Even so, for every bite the Tribunal Council and the Thunder Beasts took, they would at least get some crumbs!
“Let’s go!””Whoosh whoosh whoosh”– these Godly Venerable and Daemon King fighters raced off too .
Bi Lin’s expression turned serious the moment she entered the sixth level of the Soul Pagoda . She was not as laid-back as before . Her Psyche had detected some scary presences . Not even she would dare to act rashly .
“Little boys, you have to be careful . The sixth level of the Soul Pagoda has at least two energies that aren’t inferior to me . Luckily, they don’t seem interested in us and are in deep sleep by one side . If they’re startled awake, a vicious battle is bound to happen . That old Cang Lu from the Tribunal Council must be close to the sixth level of the Soul Pagoda, so Big Sis wouldn’t dare to start a fight with them . Follow carefully behind Big Sis!” Bi Lin turned back and warned Ye Chen and Little Wingsy . “I’ve discovered some Cosmic Stones . Keep up!”
More Cosmic Stones? Ye Chen raised his eyebrow . These Cosmic Stones were definitely great for assisting in cultivation and it had minimal side effects . Even fighters at Grand Supreme or Peerless Attainment Level could use Cosmic Stones to advance their cultivation . Although a Cosmic Stone had less effect on them, a large number of Cosmic Stones stacked together would still have a considerably powerful effect .
“Whoosh whoosh whoosh”, three thunderbolts flashed across the sky .
As they were flying, Ye Chen saw a gigantic light pillar in front which stood tall and straight . Wisps of white luminance fluttered around the light pillar . One could say that the number of Cosmic Stones here was truly astonishing .
There were more than a hundred – no, a few hundred Cosmic Stones or possibly even more!
Even powerhouses at Grand Supreme and Peerless Attainment Levels, upon seeing so many Cosmic Stones, would inevitably be tempted . These hundreds of Cosmic Stones might possibly boost them by a small attainment level!
After reaching Grand Supreme or Peerless Attainment Level, it was exceedingly difficult for one’s cultivation to progress any further . Many were stuck at Boundless Attainment level for decades or even over a century, unable to break through and ultimately dying of old age . Boundless Stage, Transcendent Stage, and Preeminent Stage had thirty grades in total . Advancing by each grade was as challenging as scaling the heavens . Cultivation by itself was insufficient . One would also require the aid of other items like powerful physics, various super spirit artifacts, Cosmic Stones, and so on . Compared to physics and spirit artifacts, these Cosmic Stones were definitely the most precious type of item . This was because other than their relatively strong effects, their side effects were minimal .
However, there were too few Cosmic Stones . Those that existed before had been used up by ancient fighters . Not even Bi Lin would imagine that so many Cosmic Stones would appear on the sixth level of the Soul Pagoda .
“These Cosmic Stones are too important . Big Sis will grab them then!” Bi Lin shot a look at Ye Chen and Little Wingsy then raced toward the distant light pillar .
Ye Chen held Little Wingsy back and did not approach the light pillar . He knew that if he had competed against Bi Lin for the Cosmic Stones, it would be a suicide mission . Even a Grand Supreme fighter, after seeing so many Cosmic Stones, would be unable to repress their greed and desire .
Bi Lin was taking all these Cosmic Stones and Ye Chen had no way of objecting . After all, his cultivation base was a long way off from Bi Lin’s . He still had a degree of self-awareness . Even though Bi Lin did not seem to be malicious toward Ye Chen and Little Wingsy for now, if it came down to a matter of immense profit, she might actually act against them .
Each level of the Soul Pagoda was an enormous space . Above them was pitch darkness and one could not see the far end . The distant light pillar was dozens of kilometers tall, with no sight of its tip . Cosmic Stones circled and twirled around the light pillar . Their numbers were inconceivable .
This was surely a matchless fearsome fortune . With all these Cosmic Stones, one could exchange them for a few hundred countries!
To fighters at the peak, even the vast swathes of the homeland were not more important than one’s own strength!
Bi Lin’s right hand stretched out and numerous Cosmic Stones flew into her palm . She circled the pillar and ascended, swiftly collecting more than ten Cosmic Stones .
There was nothing else more rousing than this .
“Little boys, you may each take ten Cosmic Stones . Any more than that would be a large fortune but also a catastrophe for you . ” Bi Lin’s clear voice rang out beside the ears of Ye Chen and Little Wingsy . “There are so many Cosmic Stones here anyway . ”
Ye Chen looked toward Bi Lin’s figure which was flashing like a thunderbolt . Bi Lin did not seem to be speaking insincerely . She could very well keep all the Cosmic Stones for herself without giving a thought to Ye Chen and Little Wingsy’s feelings at all as they were no match for her . However, Bi Lin allowed Ye Chen and Little Wingsy to take ten each . This was a tremendous favor, even though there were over hundreds of Cosmic Stones here!
As Bi Lin collected the Cosmic Stones, she looked over at the entrance of the Soul Pagoda’s sixth level . This light pillar was more than dozens of kilometers tall . She had to fly around it and ascend, gathering the Cosmic Stones one by one . These Cosmic Stones seemed to have grown legs . As she collected them, they would evade and hide by their own accord . Collecting so many Cosmic Stones was time-consuming . Moreover, that old man Cang Lu must be arriving soon . She could not collect so many anyway, so it did not matter much if she let Ye Chen and Little Wingsy take a few .
As soon as Bi Lin spoke, a figure appeared at the entrance of the Soul Pagoda’s sixth level . It was an old man with long hair and beard . When he saw Bi Lin who was gathering the Cosmic Stones, he snarled furiously . His sleeves fluttered without wind, his Celestial Chi condensed into palm energy, and he charged at Bi Lin with his palm .
“Cunning woman, stop right there!” Cang Lu barked angrily . If he did not stop Bi Lin, who knew how many Cosmic Stones would fall into her hands?
