My Girlfriend From Turquoise Pond Requests My Help After My Millennium Seclusio Novel - Chapter 156
Chapter 156: Only One Step Away From Immortality
Jiang Lan never stopped cultivating.
Other than the necessary cultivation, he would also read books.
There were many books in the Ninth Summit.
He would try his best to read on as many topics as he can.
However, he still read books on array formations the most.
Over the years, the number of array formations in the Ninth Summit had increased.
Many of the old array formation modules had been replaced.
However, the number of array formations that were in the open was decreasing.
Xiao Yu would come every three years, and every time, she would ask Jiang Lan to integrate the wooden sword with his Dragon Slaying Sword’s Sword Intent.
However, no matter how many times she tried, she was unable to learn the Dragon Slaying Sword.
Jiang Lan had already given up on persuading Xiao Yu to give up on the Dragon Slaying Sword.
Instead, he just replenished the Dragon Slaying Sword’s Sword Intent in the wooden sword every time Xiao Yu looked for him.
Six years passed in a flash.
The eruption of the Netherworld Entrance had reached its peak.
On this day, Jiang Lan was cultivating. He felt that cultivating at this time would be much faster than in the past when he just had the Goddess Diagram and the elixirs that he had gotten from signing in.
As long as he could make use of this period of three years fully, he would definitely be able to perfect his Void Refinement within the next few years, making him a person who reached the perfected Void Refinement Realm within two hundred years since he had started cultivation. In fact, he would even be able to consolidate his cultivation base.
But the demons should be attacking anytime soon.
Any later and it would be meaningless.
Jiang Lan remained vigilant, but he wasn’t too worried.
He had prepared a lot over the years.
The Ninth Summit was not that easy to enter.
Under normal circumstances, no one would approach the Ninth Summit. This was the entrance to the Netherworld.
Getting close to it was the same as asking for death.
If one was not careful, one would be plagued by inner demons.
Furthermore, the entrance to the Netherworld was not simple to begin with. There would definitely be powerhouses watching over it too.
They understood the importance of this place too.
However, if the person who wanted to infiltrate was already prepared to die, then that would be a different story.
There were many people in this world who were afraid of death, but there were definitely many who weren’t too.
Some lived for faith.
However, he had killed many demons before. If these people were cautious enough, they would probably give up.
However, the demons had done so much in the past one to two hundred years. They could do anything.
It was unrealistic to expect them to be cautious and not cause trouble.
Jiang Lan wasn’t worried, but he didn’t let down his guard either.
He would not let his guard down.
He had been like this all these years.
He did not underestimate his enemies or anyone else.
As long as he was sure that the other party was an enemy, he would not show mercy.
He would try his best to kill him in one blow.
While he was cultivating, footsteps suddenly entered Jiang Lan’s mind.
The next moment, he opened his eyes.
Then, he looked around.
The source of the voice wasn’t from outside the Netherworld Cave, but from within it.
The moment he sensed this, his strength started to circulate and he was on guard.
However, he did not see anyone in the Netherworld Cave.
Footsteps sounded again.
Jiang Lan turned his attention to the well that connected to the Netherworld, which was also the entrance to the Netherworld.
“A creature has walked out from the entrance to the Netherworld?”
The moment he noticed this, Jiang Lan stood up and stared at the entrance to the Netherworld.
He remembered that when the entrance to the Netherworld erupted, some Netherworld beings might appear.
The creatures that appeared shouldn’t be strong.
He stared at the entrance to the Netherworld but didn’t move. He was just waiting for the Netherworld Race to appear.
He waited a long time.
However, the footsteps still came closer from afar. They did not really appear at the exit of the Netherworld, nor did any creatures appear in the Netherworld Cave.
“Aren’t you curious?”
A sudden voice appeared in Jiang Lan’s mind.
“Don’t you want to know what’s at the other side of the entrance to the Netherworld? There is unimaginable power here. One look is enough for you to become an immortal.”
Jiang Lan’s heart didn’t waver when he heard these voices.
He sat cross-legged and began cultivating.
The mirror in his heart began to light up.
The voice that suddenly appeared began to dissipate.
Although the footsteps were still there, they could no longer affect him.
His heart would no longer be affected. The reason why there were signs of inner demons invading his heart was entirely due to the influence of footsteps.
This eruption was much stronger than the previous one.
However, he was no longer the same person he was a hundred years ago.
As Jiang Lan was cultivating, the sounds of footsteps continued to be heard.
It no longer affected him.
If his mental state was lacking, he would definitely not force himself to stay here.
Sometimes, acting with haste brought about adverse results.
But now, he was not struggling.
Of course, it was still possible for the Netherworld Race to walk out.
He also needed to guard against this.
This would occupy some of his attention, but it was not a big problem.
Time flowed like water.
During the three years of explosive growth, Jiang Lan gave up on reading and focused on increasing his cultivation.
Such opportunities only appeared once every hundred years.
Reading books was naturally not as important as cultivating.
And because of the eruption of the Netherworld’s entrance, the items that he had obtained from signing in had also increased in quality.
It was another form of assistance to his cultivation.
He should be able to perfect his Void Refinement in another ten years.
If he did so, he would have only spent two hundred years in becoming a Void Refinement powerhouse from a mere mortal.
Mo Zhengdong sat at the peak of the Ninth Summit.
He naturally knew that Xiao Yu would occasionally come to the Ninth Summit.
This was something to be happy about.
Xiao Yu did not harbor any ill feelings towards his disciple.
Instead, she wanted to develop their relationship in a better direction.
Perhaps it was because she had decided that it was impossible to change, but Xiao Yu’s actions were indeed likable.
His disciple probably understood as well.
He should know what to do.
As his master, he could not teach Jiang Lan about romance between two parties.
He could only let Jiang Lan do it himself.
All he could do was help Jiang Lan become an immortal and help Jiang Lan get married as soon as possible.
He had thought that he would have to wait for a long time.
But recently, for some reason, he felt that he had to make preparations in advance.
“But he’s only at the early-stage Essence Soul Realm. After some time, he will at most reach the mid-stage Essence Soul Realm. I don’t know if it’s good or bad.”
Mo Zhengdong could not be sure.
However, the eruption of the Netherworld Entrance could no longer affect Jiang Lan. This meant that Jiang Lan had almost grown up.
The only thing he was lacking was cultivation.
Mo Zhengdong sat at the peak of the Ninth Summit.
He began to wait.
It was still not time for him to act.
Apart from the days that Xiao Yu came, Jiang Lan almost never left the Netherworld Cave.
He was trying his best to break through to the perfected Void Refinement Realm.
On the surface, his cultivation level was at the mid-stage Essence Soul Realm.
At this moment, he had to rely on the power that seeped out from the Netherworld’s Entrance.
Only by doing so would he be able to advance his cultivation in the shortest time possible.
The sun rose and the clouds changed.
Luminescent rain fell from the sky, plain and bleak.
This year, the first yellow leaf of the Ninth Summit began to fall, and the energy in Jiang Lan’s body began to surge.
After the yellow leaf landed on the ground, his aura returned to normal.
This year was Jiang Lan’s 190th year in Kunlun.
It had been forty years since the engagement.
This year, he had successfully broken through to the perfected Void Refinement Realm.
He was only one step away from becoming an immortal.
Jiang Lan welcomed the autumn wind and walked out of the Netherworld Cave.
On the surface, his cultivation level was now at the early-stage Essence Soul Realm, while his hidden cultivation level was at the mid-stage Essence Soul Realm.
His real cultivation base was at the perfected Void Refinement Realm.
“The ten years of lectures and the eruption of the Netherworld’s Entrance has allowed me to perfect my Void Refinement twenty years in advance. However, it’s still too difficult to take the final step of becoming an immortal.”
Jiang Lan walked towards the main hall step by step. He wanted to read some books to calm himself down.
After a few years, he planned to go out.
He wanted to find the opportunity to become an immortal.
To do that, he had to sign in elsewhere.
He had already signed in across the entirety of the Ninth Summit.
Yet, he still could not find the opportunity to become an immortal.
