Sovereign to Immortality Chapter 13
The next morning, just after dawn, Yang Junshan carried a mulberry bow and a short sword with a cold light at his waist. He hung two jugs of iron arrows on the back of the small horse-carry beast and followed his father, accompanied by Han Xiumei, his younger brother and younger sister, all the way out of the village.
There were also a few people in the village whose spiritual holes had been detected. They were all the same age and needed to go to the Hundred Sparrows Mountain to find immortal spirits. They were brought to the village by the adults of their families,all of them greeted to Yang Junshan when they saw him.
Yang Junshan’s appearance was obviously out of everyone’s expectation. Yang Tiangang came from Qingshi Town’s Yang’s family, and this was not a secret in the village. In their opinion, the Yang family of Chenyu County could be considered famous, the Hundred Sparrow Mountain had been plundered twice,they should have not paid attention to the rest of immortal spirits there.
Some of the villagers looked at each other. Could it be that the rumor from Chenyu County was true, that Yang Tiangang’s family was not welcomed by the whole family? As a direct descendant of the family, Yang Junshan couldn’t even get a piece of immortal spirit item from the family?
The thought flashed in villagers’ head,but they still kept respect for Yang tiangang. After all, his position was established three years ago. Although Yang Tiangang had been very strong in the village, he had been fair in his handling of the situation, and many people were gradually convinced of him. This was also the reason why an outsider of the Yang family was able to quickly gain a foothold in the village.
The three teenagers who were going together to the Hundred Sparrows Mountain were more or less the same age as Yang Junshan, and they were very familiar with him. The one on the left was a slightly shorter but stocky boy named Hao Zhuang, one of Zhang Huzi’s henchmen, and he looked at Yang Junshan with a bit of fear in his eyes.
The other was a thirteen-year-old girl called Xu Jing, a member of the Xu family from the village. He heard that she had three immortal spiritual holes in her body, and like Zhang Hu, she also had a third-grade cultivation talent. However, it was said that Xu Jing had a immortal spiritual holes behind her ears, so they were very valuable.
The amount of immortal spiritual holes in one’s body determined a person’s training talent, but the location of the immortal spiritual holes in the body also determined the possibility of a cultivator being born with a supernatural talent technique. Among these, the probability of the immortal spiritual holes giving birth to a supernatural technique was extremely high.
It was also because of this,the little girl could be considered arrogant in the village, even in the eyes of the village’s head young master like Yang Junshan. Even the son of the Xu family’s leader, Xu Lei, had to give in to her.
There were rumors that the Xu family’s leader, Xu Sanniang, had already arranged a marriage between her son and Xu Jing. Once the two of them reached adulthood, they would form an alliance, also because of Xu Jing’s talent.
Even though this Xu Sanniang was the only Warrior Realm cultivator of the Xu Family, even though she had a high prestige in the Xu Family, she didn’t recruit a son-in-law from the Xu Family. As her only son, Xu Lei wasn’t very liked by the elders of the Xu Family, and Xu Sanniang wanted to pave the way for her son to control the Xu Family. She was the perfect candidate to be her daughter-in-law.
Yang Junshan naturally knew about this matter, and he also knew that Xu Jing’s arrogance was far above Xu Sanniang’s expectation. Although she had already made an engagement with Xu Lei, after this trip to Hundred Sparrows Mountain, she would attract the attention of the disciples of the Heaven-Shaking Sect.
The third youngster looked a lot older than Yang Junshan and the others. Yang Junshan recognized this person’s name as Su Baozhang, and was three years older than Yang Junshan.
Originally, at his age, he had already missed out on his best Spirit Summoning stage, but Yang Junshan knew that this person’s family was poor. Three years ago, he had obviously missed the opening of the Hundred Sparrows Mountain Enclosure, and this time, he had saved a lot of jade coins in exchange for a qualification to go to the Hundred Sparrows Mountain.
Although Su Baozhang rejected the invitation for three years, he still had such an opportunity. Moreover, this opportunity was extremely precious compared to some people, and many people did not even have the chance to obtain an immortal soul despite their cultivation aptitude. They could only rely on the simple and crude Qi Method to accumulate the spiritual energy in their body bit by bit until they successfully summoned their spirits. He had lost count of how much time had passed.
The population of the village was about five or six thousand, so it was only natural that there would not be only these four teenagers between the ages of twelve and fifteen. However, most of the youths of the same age would not have any training talent after passing the test, and even if they could barely get it, they would not be able to afford the expensive jade coins needed to enter the Fairy Spirit Arena.
Of course, families like Zhang Hu Zi’s and Xu Lei’s had already prepared some immortal treasures for them, so they naturally wouldn’t take any more risks. Originally, Yang Junshan didn’t need to go, but in his previous life, he didn’t even think much of that medium-grade immortal soil yellowstone, so he naturally didn’t think much of it in this life.
In his previous life, Yang Junshan also went to the Hundred Sparrows Mountain with the four people in front of him, but after entering the mountain, they went their separate ways. In the end, Yang Junshan came back in a sorry state, and besides Xu Jing, Su Baozhang was even worse than Yang Junshan.
Upon seeing that the people from our village had arrived, Yangtian nodded and said, “Let’s go, don’t miss the hour!”
In each of the six counties of Yu County, there was an enclosure for the Vibrant Heaven Sect to raise immortal spirits. These enclosures would open once every three years, and each opening was for the first round of harvests by the disciples of the Vibrant Heaven Sect. The best immortal spirits in these three years would naturally fall into the hands of the disciples of the Vibrant Heaven Sect.
After the Heaven-Shaking Sect, the disciples of the famous sects and noble clans in Yu County entered for the second time. After the rest of the immortal souls were collected, it was the third group’s turn to enter the enclosure. Yang Junshan and the rest were the last group of people to enter the ring.
However, after two batches of harvests, there weren’t many left in the field. Even if there were any that remained, they were mostly abandoned items that the first two groups of people looked down on, mostly low quality ones. Being able to obtain a medium quality immortal spirit was considered a blessing to the heavens.
Even so, the competition for the third set of entrances was still extremely intense in the entire Yu County. Although the third set of entrances were aimed at the entire county, the disciples guarding the ring used the limited number of immortals in the ring as a reason to limit the number of entrants. Other than the assigned number of entrances to the towns and villages, the remaining entrances were used to exchange for jade coins. The higher the price, the better.
For example, the village originally only had three entry slots into the arena. Apart from Yang Junshan, the other two slots were in the hands of Hao Zhuang and Xu Jing. Behind these two slots were the other two forces of the village besides the village head.
As for Su Baozhang’s quota, Yang Junshan naturally knew that it was not something that could be exchanged with just jade coins, especially for a weak family like Su Baozhang, who was only fifteen years old and whose whole family had saved up a fortune of jade coins, but had no other choice. Yang Junshan couldn’t bear to find a way to exchange such a quota for Su Baozhang’s quota, especially for a poor family like Su Baozhang.
In his previous life, Su Baozhang wanted to follow Yang Junshan to help him find a fairy, but was rejected by the proud and arrogant Yang Junshan. After that, Yang Junshan was disappointed to find a low-grade immortal spirit, but Su Baojian was also satisfied with a low-grade immortal spirit.
The village was about two hundred miles away from the Hundred Sparrow Mountain, and the distance between the village and the village was about half an hour. However, the entire village was only two horses, and the parents who had accompanied them to the village hired a big carriage, which meant that it would take them at least four hours to get to the Hundred Sparrows Mountain.
Along the way, Yang Tiangang and his son slowed down their pace so that the carriage could catch up with them. However, the other people in the carriage were not as comfortable as the carriage, although the drivers were very skilled, but after two hundred miles, even if the people in the carriage had some cultivation base, they would still lose a third of their spirit.
Everyone hurried along the way. They bumped into two or three groups of village cultivators who were heading towards the Hundred Sparrows Mountain. Yang Tiangang was familiar with most of them, so he went along with them.
Normally, it was surrounded by the huge formation set up by the Heaven-Shaking Sect. Looking up from the foot of the mountain, the entire mountain was covered in clouds and mist, and only when the formation was activated would one be able to take a look at the entire area. There were also disciples of the Heaven-Shaking Sect on guard duty, and only three times every three years, the disciples of the Heaven-Shaking Sect would be able to activate it. For the three groups of cultivators to enter and leave.
Mengyu County had five towns and twenty-five villages, each village had an average of four or five twelve-to fifteen-year-old cultivators. In addition to the secretly issued placings, this third wave of cultivators had a total of around two hundred people.
Nearly two hundred youths gathered at the foot of the Hundred Sparrows Mountain. In addition, the number of villagers, young parents, and other people who came with them almost reached four hundred. In addition, there were also some carriages and horses.
