Chapter 56: Ancient Forbidden Ground, Mysterious Wooden Tablet

Daoist Nine Cauldrons noticed Su Qi as soon as he appeared and asked in surprise, “Is this your disciple?”

Han Jue shook his head and said, “No, he’s just my servant.”

Su Qi wanted to say something but eventually chose to remain silent.

Daoist Nine Cauldrons carefully sized him up, and his eyes lit up. “This child’s potential is very good. It’s truly a waste of his talent to be your servant. Why don’t you follow me overseas and seek the Great Dao?”

Han Jue frowned and his heart skipped a beat.

Oh, ancestor!

You’re courting death!

Daoist Nine Cauldrons looked at Su Qi and asked with a smile, “Boy, are you willing? I’m the founder of the Jade Pure Sect. This is a great opportunity!”

He directly skipped Han Jue because he already knew his personality.

This kid was most afraid of trouble.

If he could take Su Qi away, Han Jue might be grateful to him.

Su Qi was excited when he heard that.

Han Jue couldn’t help but say, “Ancestor, this child’s situation is special. It’s best not to accept him.”

What could he say?

Tell him that Su Qi was a jinx?

Who would believe that?

Daoist Nine Cauldrons asked with a faint smile, “Why? Are you unwilling to let him go?”

Su Qi immediately said, “Thank you for your kind intentions, ancestor. I want to stay here.”

He wasn’t stupid. Daoist Nine Cauldrons was the founder. He actually came to visit Han Jue personally with such a status.

What did that mean?

Han Jue’s status was not low!

He might even be on par with Daoist Nine Cauldrons!

“Fine.” Daoist Nine Cauldrons smiled, not angry.

He walked to Han Jue’s side and sat down. He smiled and said, “Young friend, I’ve already gone to all the sects in the Great Yan Cultivation World. In the future, the Jade Pure Sect will no longer be in danger. You can cultivate in peace.”

Han Jue smiled and said, “Ancestor is truly the ancestor. How impressive. I’m very amazed.”

Daoist Nine Cauldrons stroked his beard and laughed, clearly enjoying the flattery.

“When I went out this time, I discovered an Ancient Forbidden Ground. There are abundant resources inside. I plan to take it for myself and make it the cultivation ground of the Jade Pure Sect. This forbidden ground has just been discovered. There might be many treasures inside. Do you want to take a look?”

Han Jue raised his eyebrows after hearing this.

Ancient Forbidden Ground?

One word instantly appeared in his mind.

Danger!

Could it be the forbidden area that Zhou Fan had fallen into previously?

Han Jue hurriedly shook his head and said, “Forget it, let’s give a chance to the other disciples of the sect.”

Daoist Nine Cauldrons shook his head and laughed.

This kid is really afraid of death.

This was also good. The other disciples were too rash. It was better for the sect to have a cultivator like Han Jue guarding it.

Daoist Nine Cauldrons continued with a smile, “In twenty years, I will have to leave. The Heavenly Immortal Abode is about to open. I’m prepared to enter to pursue the Great Dao. Let me tell you, the Heavenly Immortal Abode has an extraordinary background. Every hundred years, disciples who ascended to become immortals would appear…”

He began to talk.

Han Jue found it familiar.

Wait!

Wasn’t this what Xuan Qingjun wanted to give him the first time she came to him?

Heavenly Immortal Abode Token!

He had rejected her back then.

From the looks of it, the Heavenly Immortal Abode was indeed formidable. Even an eighth-level Void Amalgamation Realm cultivator like Daoist Nine Cauldrons wanted to enter it.

Han Jue listened patiently.

Su Qi also listened.

After a long time…

“Hahaha, when I come back next time, I might already be at the Body Integration Realm. My grand disciple said that you have outstanding potential and can catch up to me in a few hundred years. At that time, you and I will fight and see who is stronger.” Daoist Nine Cauldrons smiled proudly.

Han Jue was speechless.

He suddenly realized that Daoist Nine Cauldrons’ personality was different from what he had imagined.

This fellow had the heart to show off.

That made sense. Daoist Nine Cauldrons’s return this time could be said to be extremely sensational. He even suppressed the top cultivation of the Great Yan Cultivation World. Such a person would definitely have a high-profile temperament.

Han Jue shook his head and smiled. “Even if you give me a few thousand years, I won’t be able to catch up to you!”

Daoist Nine Cauldrons was delighted.

[Daoist Nine Cauldrons has a good impression of you. Current favorability: 1 star]

He finally had a good impression of him!

Han Jue had been wondering why Daoist Nine Cauldrons didn’t have a good impression of him when he had contributed so much to the sect.

It turned out that he wanted to hear flattery!

Daoist Nine Cauldrons was finally satisfied.

He was just passing by when he came to look for Han Jue.

He was shocked to discover that his prestige in the sect was not the highest.

He couldn’t compare to the Deity Slaying Elder!

Daoist Nine Cauldrons had led the Jade Pure Sect to greater heights, but the Deity Slaying Elder had saved the sect. There was indeed a gap between the two.

In addition, Daoist Nine Cauldrons was too high-profile. He often walked around the inner sect and almost all the disciples had seen him. As for the Deity Slaying Elder, other than Jade Serene Peak, most of the disciples had never seen him. He had always been very mysterious.

Under such circumstances, the disciples worshiped the mysterious Deity Slaying Elder even more.

After posturing, Daoist Nine Cauldrons left in satisfaction.

Han Jue didn’t think too much and continued cultivating.

Time flew.

Ten years passed quickly.

While the Jade Pure Sect was growing rapidly, Han Jue had been cultivating silently.

His cultivation level had broken through to the sixth level of the Soul Formation Realm.

He used the simulation trial to fight Daoist Nine Cauldrons again.

This time, he lasted for an hour.

But he still lost!

Han Jue sighed.

Daoist Nine Cauldrons, who was at the eighth level of the Void Amalgamation Realm, was very strong.

In a bad mood, Han Jue prepared to go out and wander around.

He suddenly recalled that Daoist Nine Cauldrons had already come into contact with Su Qi. Would he encounter bad luck?

He immediately opened the emails.

[Your good friend Mo Fuchou was attacked by demons.]
[Your good friend Mo Zhu was attacked by demons.]
[Your good friend Daoist Nine Cauldrons encountered a mental demon during cultivation.]
[Your good friend Daoist Nine Cauldrons was attacked by a mental demon, reducing his cultivation by 100 years.]
[Your good friend Zhou Fan is dead. His soul was recalled by a mighty figure. He has been reborn.]

Han Jue was amused.

Daoist Nine Cauldrons had truly gotten unlucky.

As for Zhou Fan, this experience was the protagonist’s life!

Han Jue shook his head and laughed. His mood improved and he got up to leave.

Su Qi was still cultivating.

Han Jue didn’t teach him anything. He had been cultivating with the foundational Qi absorption technique until today and had never taken any Youth Retaining Pills. Now, he was already mature and was no longer the elegant youth from before.

Xing Hongxuan went out a few years ago and had just returned less than three days ago. Han Jue decided to visit her.

This was the first time Han Jue came to her cave abode.

Xing Hongxuan was so excited that she stood up to welcome him.

After the two of them entered the cave abode, Xing Hongxuan waved her hand and used the Formation Array to close the entrance.

Han Jue sized up her cave abode. Although it was a cave abode, it had a unique charm. There were many paintings hanging on the wall, and the bed was a white jade boulder. It was spotlessly white.

Xing Hongxuan immediately hugged his arm and pulled him to the table. She smiled and said, “Husband, you came at the right time. A few years ago, I went to the Ancient Forbidden Ground and obtained quite a number of treasures there. You can take a look and see what you like.”

She waved her right hand and treasures appeared on the table.

There were jades, equipment, natural treasures, and so on. They were all very small.

Han Jue sat down and scanned them with his divine sense.

He merely glanced at them.

Although Xing Hongxuan was already a Golden Core Realm cultivator, what treasures could she find?

“Eh?” Han Jue suddenly exclaimed.

His gaze landed on a wooden tablet that looked like a memorial tablet.

Xing Hongxuan noticed his expression and smiled smugly. “How about it? If you like it, you can take it. Everything I have is also yours.”

Han Jue ignored her and picked up the wooden tablet.

There were no words on it. It looked very ordinary.

However, Han Jue could sense a faint spiritual will inside.

It was very weak!

Ordinary Soul Formation Realm cultivators might not even notice.

Han Jue closed his eyes and probed with his divine sense.

Boom—

A powerful divine sense broke through the spiritual will in the wooden token. Immediately after, a memory surged into Han Jue’s mind.

Xing Hongxuan raised her hands and looked at him.

It had been a long time since she had seen him so close.

Why was this face so handsome?

Xing Hongxuan was no longer young and often went out to train. She could be said to be experienced and knowledgeable. However, no matter how many talented people she saw, she still thought that Han Jue was the best.

He was indeed the man she fell in love with at first sight.
