Sovereign To Immortality – C14 – The Jade Ring
Although Yang Junshan was only twelve years old, exercising of Wild Bull Fist made his strength increased. The mulberry bow in his hand was already soft, not to mention that the two quivers of Iron Feather Arrows in his hand were much heavier than the ordinary Bamboo Feather Arrows,if not using strong bow, it would be difficult to reach even 30 feet range.
“Dad,I’ll use your engraved bow!”
Yang Tiangang had just dug a pot of tobacco, he seemed not to be surprised at all. He laughed, ” You think you can pull it off?”
Yang Junshan saw that his father had expected this, understood immediately. Yang Tiangang had probably already thought of the need for a thirty decalitres of bow for Iron Feather arrows, otherwise, with his Warrior Realm cultivation level, he would be able to pull out six or seven decalitre bows, so why would he need to hang a thirty decalitre of bow on the back of a Horse-carry beast?
However, Yang Junshan didn’t know that there was another reason as well. When he was practicing boxing yesterday morning, Yang Tiangang had guessed the progress of his boxing technique from the crisp sound of the bones in his body. He had expected his strength to be able to draw the thirty decalitre of bow.
Yang Junshan had an eager expression on his face as he said, “I want to have a try!”
While Yang Junshan was asking his father for the bow, he had already attracted the attention of a few other teenagers around. However, these teenagers obviously did not think that Yang Junshan was able to pull out the bow, and their expressions were full of disdain and ridicule. Some of them even secretly hoped that Yang Junshan beinjure by the bow, and thus, then he would quit, so that there would be one less competitor.
However, under the undisguised gloating eyes of many of his age,Yang Junshan had already taken off his engraved bow from the back of the Horse-carry beast. Seeing this, Su Baozhang quickly stepped forward and said in a low voice, “Junshan, this time, it’s better to conserve your energy and not waste your energy on useless things, in order to prevent others from finding out your own background!”
Sure enough, Su Baozhang was a kind and honest man just like in his previous incarnation. However, Yang Junshan had his own considerations, he turned around and said in a low voice, “Brother Baozhang, don’t worry, I have confidence!”
Su Baozhang was stunned for a moment. He then realized that even Yang Tiangangdid not try to stop Yang Junshan from pulling the bow. Naturally, he had a deeper meaning behind his actions. Thus, he nodded his head and moved aside to watch Yang Junshan drawing the bow.
Yang Junshan lowered his waist and gathered his energy. He held the bow with one hand and pulled the bowstring with the other. With a shout, his arms forcefully pulled the bow 70% open.
What great strength!
All of a sudden, the youths who were watching Yang Junshan drew his bow sucked in a breath of cold air, and all of them had the same thought in their minds, even though Su Baozhang had practiced for three years more than Yang Junshan, he still felt unbelievable after seeing the strength of Yang Junshan.
This was not the end. Yang Junshan slowly let out a breath, and the carved bow slowly released. Following that, Yang Junshan sucked in a deep breath, and once again forcefully pulled the bow away.
After drawing his bow three times, each time he pulled back seventy percent, even though Yang Junshan’s strength had increased greatly, he was still sweating and gasping. Among the three teenagers from the same village, Su Baozhang’s expression was full of surprise and admiration, but most of them were still full of respect; Hao Zhuang’s face did not look too good, and his gaze towards Yang Junshan was filled with fear. Following that, she let out a cold snort, turned her face away and raised herhead up high with an arrogant and lovable look on her face.
Yang Junshan looked at the expressions of the crowd and laughed. He rubbed his fingers that were aching from the bowstring, then turned to face Yang Tiangang and asked, “Father, how was it?”
Yang Tiangang said:”Just so-so.” Then threw an object at Yang Junshan.
Yang Junshan caught the thing,his eyes light up at it, it was a jade ring with spiritual light shining. This jade ring was entirely made of spirit jade, and was made of a lot of raw materials. The amount of spirit jade used to carve this ring was equivalent to three jade coins, not to mention there were a few simple runes on this jade ring, but Yang Junshan could tell that these runes were actually a simple storing power array. To be able to save some strength while Yang Junshan was drawing his bow, this way, he would not be able to make his arms sore and weak in just three times without any strength left in them.
Yang Junshan knew that this jade ring was one of the things his father often carried on his fingers. It was one of the few things his grandfather had left for his father.
This time, even Xu Jing saw the large piece of Spirit Jade Ring in Yang Junshan’s hands, her face also flashed with envy. However, she quickly turned away and deliberately avoided looking at Yang Junshan.
In fact, even Yang Junshan was quite surprised. In his previous incarnation, when he came to Hundred Sparrows Mountain, although Yang Tiangang also carried a carved bow, Yang Junshan did not even have the strength to draw thirty decalitres of bows at that time, so he naturally did not think about the significance of Yang Tiangangbringing a bow.
However, Yang Junshan never thought that his father would give him such a quasi-magic tool. Although this jade ring couldn’t be compared to a real magic weapon, a few simple runes could not only help increase his strength, but also replenish the small amount of spiritual energy in his body.
Yang Junshan was fully prepared. At this time, he was only waiting for the disciples of the Heaven-Shaking Sect who were on duty to activate the grand sealing formation.
However, at this time, a clamor came from a mountain entrance not far from where Yang Junshan and the others were resting. Everyone looked up and saw a group of people escorted by two young and young cattle were walking towards the square in front of the entrance of the Hundred Sparrows Mountain Range.
“It’s the father and son of Zhang Chenghong and Zhang Yueming from Huangyuan Town!” The one who spoke was the nearby village of Tumeng Village, Zhenmeng Mountain. Like Yang Tiangang, he was also a Warrior Realm cultivation.
“This Zhang Chenghong is terrible, but he has a good son. He actually has a second-grade talent and has four spiritual cavities. It is said that he has already attracted the attention of the Heaven-Shaking Sect, and once he successfully summons a spirit, he will enter the Heaven-Shaking Sect as an inner disciple.” Another Martial Mortal Realm cultivator sighed.
Everyone exclaimed when they heard of this. The faces of almost all the youngsters were full of envy. Even that arrogant girl Xu Jing was no exception. Yang Junshan’s new limelight was not even worth mentioning.
A puzzled expression appeared on Yang Tiangang’s face as he said, “What are father and son doing here? With that child’s second-grade talent, are they still worried that he doesn’t have an immortal spirit good?”
Meng Shan laughed and said: “Old Yang, although your old Yang family is considered a Prominent Class, but in this Mengyu County, your Old Yang’s information is not very well-informed!”
Yang Tiangang did not mind and asked curiously, “Oh, did Brother Meng know the reason?Please tell me!”
Meng Shan said, “It’s said that Zhang Chenghong’s son has already been taught a precious technique by an expert of the Heaven-Shaking Sect. Hunting down immortal spirits is just a rule of the Heaven-Shaking Sect, and in fact, what kind of immortal spirits do they have prepared for this child?”
Yang Tiangang suddenly understood and said, “So that’s how it is. However, since it’s just a small event, and today there are nearly two hundred youths entering the mountain, isn’t the Heaven-Shaking Sect afraid that others will snatch this child’s chance?Even if the Heaven-Shaking Sect was fully prepared, they wouldn’t let this child compete against two hundred people!”
Not only did Yang Tiangang’s words voice voice out his own doubts, they also answered some of the teenagers’ questions. However, Yang Junshan was not one of them, and if anyoneof them wanted to fight the Heavenly Sect to prepare a celestial treasure for Zhang Yueming, he would not risk his life, and even if he did, he would not be able to get it.
Sure enough, another village was looking at the surrounding youths with a hint of warning, sneering, “If I wasn’t so well-prepared, how could the Heaven Shaking Sect be like this?” “If you really want to reach out to Zhang Yueming, you’re really courting death. Don’t forget, we can’t enter the ring unless it’s a warrior Realm cultivator from the Heaven-Shaking Sect!”
Meng Shan was also rather surprised by this. He said, “Don’t you know that there’s something fishy going on here, Brother Yang?Could it be that Mengyu County and Chenyu County are not the same?”
Yang Tiangang said, “If Mengyu County discovered such a young man, they would also want to take such a walk, but they would directly place the child in the first group of cultivators entering the ring. This is also the reason why I was puzzled.”
Meng Shan sighed and said, “Brother Yang, you don’t know about this. ChenyuCounty can’t compare to the other five counties of Yu County. Not only is there not a lot of people, but the children with superior talent haven’t appeared for years, let alone the children who directly attracted the attention of the Heaven-Shaking Sect. This is why our county has never been able to hold its head up when compared to the other five counties in Yu County!”
Meng Shan paused for a moment before continuing, “Because this child has alerted the county governor this time, not only will this Zhang Yueming make a smooth journey, without any accidents, he will also make a beautiful and wonderful journey. If we follow Brother Yang’s way of talking about Mengyu, although we can be considered to have taken care of this child, but in the event that the outcome of the match is poor, we will be able to defeat him.What about a medium grade celestial spirit or something like that? One must know that among the first group of disciples to enter the arena, which one isn’t of extraordinary talent? Even if this country bumpkin were to be casually suppressed, no one would care, and no one would dare to not care, right?”
Meng Shan’s explanation woke up Yang Tiangang. Although some of the youths weren’t satisfied, they were disappointed when they heard Yang Tiangang’s words. “According to what Brother Meng said, this kid, Zhang Yueming, is at least a high-grade Immortal Spirits.”
High-grade Immortal Spirits!
Everyone was surprised again, the scarcity of immortal spirits was the first threshold that limited the number of cultivators. It was said that even the Heaven Shaking Sect was unable to popularize high grade immortal spirits, and the famous clans in the county could only collect as many intermediate grade immortal spirits as possible. For wild cultivators like them, they would be satisfied just by harvesting a low grade immortal spirit for cultivation.
