“Time flies when cultivating here at this period.”
Jiang Lan couldn’t help but sigh as he faced the eruption of the Netherworld’s entrance.
If he could enter the Netherworld to train, his training speed would be unimaginable.
Unfortunately, even if he was allowed to enter casually, he would not choose to go there to cultivate.
This was because he would be severely affected.
If he chose to do that, the plan would only backfire on him.
Furthermore, it would affect his immortal path.
Not long after, Jiang Lan stood up and planned to leave the Netherworld Cave. He would build a house at the entrance of the cave and cultivate.
This should only last for a year or two.
At the same time, he would guard the entrance to the Netherworld to see if any Netherworld beings would come out.
However, just as Jiang Lan got up, he felt someone enter the Netherworld Cave.
It was his master.
Mo Zhengdong walked in.
The moment he entered, he saw Jiang Lan.
The entrance to the Netherworld Aura eruption had reached its highest peak.
He was worried that Jiang Lan would be trapped within it.
Thus, he had specially come over.
It seemed like he was overthinking.
At this moment, Jiang Lan was already planning to retreat.
“Master!” Jiang Lan called out.
“The eruption has already reached its peak. How do you feel?” Mo Zhengdong asked Jiang Lan.
“It’s a bit dangerous,” Jiang Lan said with a serious expression.
It was indeed dangerous.
Otherwise, he wouldn’t have chosen to leave this place.
Mo Zhengdong nodded. This disciple of his knew his limits.
Then, without saying anything, he walked towards the well.
Jiang Lan stood where he was and didn’t follow him. That well wasn’t something he could look at right now.
Although he was curious about the well, he was not strong enough.
When he was strong enough, he would look into it.
He needed to become an immortal.
Although it was still very far away.
But it was much closer than before.
It was still out of reach for the current him.
Jiang Lan looked at his master standing in front of the well. From his angle, he could see his master’s side profile.
His master had an expression of calmness.
It was as if this well’s threat had not exceeded what he expected.
Mo Zhengdong did not take another look. He only took a glance before turning around and leaving.
“Let’s go. Looks like nothing will come out this time,” Mo Zhengdong said as he approached Jiang Lan.
Jiang Lan nodded and followed.
Although he did not understand why his master was so certain, he knew that his master was right.
“Are you sure you want to continue training at the entrance of the Netherworld Cave?”
At the entrance to the Netherworld Cave, Mo Zhengdong looked at Jiang Lan and said.
“You are the disciple with the highest potential to inherit the Ninth Summit. You should not be guarding the entrance to the Netherworld Cave.”
Jiang Lan was silent.
He only wanted to cultivate.
Besides, it seemed like there were no other powerful disciples competing for the Ninth Summit.
Mo Zhengdong smiled at Jiang Lan.
“Same old rules. Come to me once a month so that I can check if you have any inner demons.”
“Many thanks, Master.” Jiang Lan bowed his head in thanks.
Jiang Lan was very worried about himself during the eruption process.
This was especially so after being placed in the previous situation.
If something really went wrong, at least his master could discover it as soon as possible.
Then, Jiang Lan built a small wooden hut at the entrance of the Netherworld Cave.
He sat inside and focused on cultivating.
During this period of time, he would go to the peak of the Ninth Summit every month.
After that, he would water the vegetative egg and take care of the Ninth Summit’s roads.
To ensure that the Ninth Summit did not look abandoned.
There were no changes to the vegetative egg. It was still a potted plant.
Jiang Lan’s cultivation progress had always been at its peak.
Three years later, the eruption of the Netherworld ended.
Jiang Lan moved into the Netherworld Cave again.
This time, he brought the vegetative egg with him.
Currently, his cultivation was still at the mid-stage Essence Soul Realm, only a step away from the late-stage.
During this period of time, Jiang Lan had specially gone into the Netherworld Cave to sign in whenever he could.
The eruption would most likely make the rewards much better.
And it was indeed proven true.
Be it pills, Dharma treasures, or cultivation techniques, they were better than before.
This also greatly increased Jiang Lan’s cultivation speed.
During this period of time, Jiang Lan had never left the Ninth Summit. He had always lived on the Ninth Summit.
Doing what he had to do, what he had to do.
Twenty years later.
The bead Ao Longyu had given him shattered.
The absorption of all the essence within was complete.
At this moment, Jiang Lan had already stepped into the late-stage Essence Soul Realm.
However, the shattering of the pearl meant that his cultivation had temporarily come to an end. After leaving the Netherworld Cave, Jiang Lan walked around the Ninth Summit.
It was mainly to calm himself down.
Then he read some books.
And learned of some array formations.
He also watered his vegetative egg.
He rarely heard of any news regarding what was happening outside the Ninth Summit.
However, he would occasionally hear his master say that the disciples of the other peaks were cultivating diligently.
They seemed to be going to participate in some sort of gathering or competition.
Jiang Lan was worried for a while.
He was afraid that his master would say that every summit was required to send an outstanding disciple to attend.
After all, there was no disciple more outstanding than him in the Ninth Summit.
After taking care of some of the paths in the Ninth Summit, Jiang Lan returned to the Netherworld Cave.
“The bead Senior Sister Ao gave me has already been used up. After so many years, I don’t think anyone will think about it anymore. ”
There were also some benefits to using up the bead.
On the surface, his cultivation had reached the late-stage Golden Core Realm.
Theoretically, he wanted it to be at the mid-stage Golden Core Realm, but that bead had already been used up. If his cultivation didn’t increase by a huge margin, it wouldn’t make sense.
However, it was still better for him to stay at the late-stage Golden Core Realm on the surface for a longer period of time.
“I’ll have to use the Goddess Diagram for my future cultivation. After so many years, the accumulated essence in it shouldn’t be lacking anymore.”
After sitting down cross-legged, Jiang Lan opened the Jade Pool Goddess Diagram in his mind.
He intended to cultivate using it.
But this time, Jiang Lan didn’t see the dragon by the lake.
Then, he looked at the lake.
Neither was there anyone there.
Or rather, Ao Longyu was nowhere to be seen on the diagram.
“Has she disappeared?”
