Chapter 11: Can You Lend Me Your Red Gourd?
Translator: Atlas Studios Editor: Atlas Studios
Mo Zhengdong shook his head at Jiang Lan’s words.
“Once your cultivation has reached a certain level, you will be able to understand this better.”
Jiang Lan nodded slightly.
This was very normal.
He looked like he was only at the Qi Refinement stage right now.
Even a true genius at his supposed stage wouldn’t know the secrets of Kunlun Mountain so easily, let alone someone like him who didn’t look like a genius.
“Get ready, then you can head to the Third Summit. This time, your cultivation level might be the weakest.
After entering, it will be a test of your cultivation.
So don’t show off your abilities, “Mo Zhengdong said seriously.
Although the mystic realms had many benefits, opportunities also meant danger.
The slightest carelessness could lead to an eternal damnation.
“I will follow Master’s instructions.” Jiang Lan naturally wouldn’t lower his guard.
He could relax by himself, but once there were more people, he couldn’t do so.
He had too many secrets.
Being exposed would be a crisis for him.
Therefore, he will keep a low profile.
After leaving the mountain peak, Jiang Lan returned to his residence.
He made some simple preparations.
He wore his red gourd and left the Ninth Summit.
The little gourd was his storage treasure, so he just had to bring this with him.
This way, even if he took out a treasure from the system, no one would say anything.
The Third Summit was not close to the Ninth Summit. However, as Jiang Lan appeared to be at the ninth-stage of the Qi Refinement realm, it would not take too much time for him to get there.
When he arrived at the Third Summit, Jiang Lan discovered that there were actually many female disciples here.
Speaking of which, he didn’t know much about the other peaks in Kunlun.
He only knew that the First Summit was the strongest peak.
Every summit master had their own responsibilities.
His master’s duty was to guard the entrance to the Netherworld.
This could be his responsibility in the future.
“Ordinary disciples are not allowed into the Third Summit.” When Jiang Lan reached the entrance, he was suddenly stopped by two beautiful women.
“I am Jiang Lan of the Ninth Summit. I am under the orders of my master to enter the mystic realm of the Third Summit.” As he spoke, Jiang Lan took out a jade tablet.
“This is my identity jade tablet.”
“He’s really from the Ninth Summit.” The two of them were slightly surprised.
Thereafter, they could only make way for him.
When Jiang Lan had walked up, the two women started chatting curiously.
“Didn’t they say that there’s no one from the Ninth Summit?”
“That’s right. I also heard that the disciples of the Ninth Summit never stay for long. I remember that the Ninth Summit hasn’t taken in any disciples in the past few years.”
“I have no clue, but that’s what all those senior brothers and sisters say.”
Jiang Lan continued upwards.
Indeed, the Ninth Summit had not accepted any disciples in the past few years.
This was good too.
He felt at ease when he’s alone. If there were more disciples, his master might have asked him to help teach them.
However, it would be very difficult for anyone to remain on the Ninth Summit.
He had always been facing the Netherworld Aura. Sometimes, he would be able to sense the strangeness in the aura. If his temperament was lacking, he would have fallen into a bottomless abyss.
Soon, Jiang Lan arrived at the place as per his master’s instructions. It was halfway up the Third Summit.
There was a small plaza with seven or eight people.
There were both men and women.
All of them had very high cultivation levels.
The weakest has already perfected the Foundation Establishment realm, while the strongest was at the Golden Core realm.
And there were more than one of them.
“There’s another one. Looks like there are seven of us. But…” A white-clothed youth looked at Jiang Lan, somewhat surprised.
“Which summit are you from, Junior Brother?” Yan Jin looked at Jiang Lan curiously.
To be able to come here, they must have been ordered by their masters.
But this person’s cultivation level was too low.
He had only perfected the Qi Refinement stage.
“I’m Jiang Lan, a disciple of the Ninth Summit. Greetings, Senior Brother.” Jiang Lan spoke in a neither servile nor overbearing manner.
Yan Li was surprised.
“So he’s the junior brother of the Ninth Summit. No wonder.”
Yan Li then looked at another Golden Core cultivator.
“Junior Sister Ao. With the disciple of the Ninth Summit, the number of people is just right. I’ll leave this team to you.”
Standing by the side, Ao Longyu nodded slightly.
Under Yan Li’s guidance, Jiang Lan walked to Ao Longyu’s team.
“Every team has a leader. They are all Golden Core disciples of the various summits.
They won’t interfere too much, but it’s best if you don’t go too far away. It’s easy to fall into danger,” Yan Li told Jiang Lan.
Jiang Lan naturally expressed his gratitude towards this.
However, if a Golden Core cultivator could lead a team, then there shouldn’t be much of a danger inside.
Jiang Lan dispelled this thought as soon as it appeared.
No one said that Golden Core cultivators could roam freely inside.
One needed to be vigilant when facing the unknown.
“After entering, you have a week to a month’s time.
Please be sufficiently prepared.” When Jiang Lan joined the group, Ao Longyu reminded everyone.
Jiang Lan glanced at the other party. Her features were exquisite, and she had the appearance of a female beauty that could captivate even the birds and beasts.
However, there wasn’t much emotion in her eyes. She was proud and cold.
“Her surname is Ao? Is she related to the Dragon race?” This question flashed through Jiang Lan’s mind.
Of course, it was just pure speculation. There was no evidence, and he had no intention of asking.
“Junior Brother, I heard that you obtained five Dharma treasures three years ago.
I remember that there’s a red gourd out of the five. That’s a pretty good storage Dharma treasure, right? “At this moment, a young man nudged Jiang Lan and said with a smile,
“Your cultivation level is weak. It’s dangerous for you to enter. You might lose your treasure,
Why don’t you lend it to us first? We can keep it safe for you.”
Jiang Lan turned to look at the young man beside him. He was a short-haired man with rough facial features and a hint of wildness in his eyes.
“A cultivator who has perfected the Foundation Establishment, and has the strength of one bull.” This thought flashed across Jiang Lan’s mind.
Jiang Lan remained silent.
But at this moment, he felt a cold glint.
A long sword shone not far in front of Jiang Lan, or rather, it was aimed directly at the short-haired man.
At this moment, Jiang Lan could feel the power within the sword. It was a flash of blue light, and it was extremely powerful.
“Junior Brother Xin Jiao, if this junior brother’s red gourd is lost in the mystic realm, I’ll take it as you’re the one who took it.
Do you understand? “A crisp and pleasant voice was heard.
It was Ao Longyu.
This sword intimidated Xin Jiao. He snorted coldly and did not say anything else.
Jiang Lan looked at the senior sister in surprise.
But when he looked over, that senior sister had already sheathed her sword and walked forward.
“The others aren’t surprised. From the looks of it, it wasn’t a sudden action for her.
Does this senior sister love to be nosy?”
Then, Jiang Lan and the others followed along, ready to enter the mystic realm.
Jiang Lan didn’t relax.
Ever since those two people who appeared three years ago, he realized that not all of his fellow disciples were on the same side.
