Surely he hadn’t met with an accident? 

Thinking of that possibility, Su Mujin couldn’t sit by any longer, and decided to jump into the tarn to search for Gu Feng.
It wasn’t long before he saw Gu Feng lying still and silent on the bottom of the pool.
Su Mujin was so frightened that his heart nearly stopped.
He urgently rushed over, gathered up Gu Feng, and swam to the surface.

Coming out of the water, Su Mujin checked for Gu Feng’s breath. Still breathing, thankfully Shixiong is okay.
After using an art to dry Gu Feng off, Su Mujin began to cultivate.
Otherwise, he’d remain too weak and be unable to assist his shixiong.

When Gu Feng finally woke, three days had already passed.
Just as he regained consciousness, he became aware of a person rushing toward him and throwing themselves into his arms. What the hell? Gu Feng was dumbfounded.

“Shixiong, the past few days you scared me nearly to death.
I was so worried you’d never wake up again.” Su Mujin nestled in Gu Feng’s embrace, and his voice choked up as he began to cry. 

Gu Feng, “.

Gu Feng silently despaired.
Despite his past experience, today he was a domineering and tenacious man.
What kind of demeanor was he supposed to show this loudly wailing child? After adopting Su Mujin, it seemed that Su Mujin’s true disposition had veered toward that of a young girl.
Where had Gu Feng gone wrong?

Wait, how did this frightening sense of remorse suddenly arise?

“Hey, I’m alright.
Don’t waste time crying.
You should be cultivating instead.” Gu Feng wiped away Su Mujin’s tears, and patted his back. 

Regardless, he himself picked up this kid — who else was there to coax him? Such a clingy child.
What a hassle!

Su Mujin obediently released Gu Feng and went back to cultivating.
He felt his face begin to flush anew, and his heart beat rapidly.
It was true, Shixiong must have poisoned him once again.
How rude!

If Gu Feng knew Su Mujin’s internal dialogue at this moment, I’m afraid he’d spit up blood in anger.
But right now he had no time to spend understanding Su Mujin, because he was completely engrossed in digesting the information in his spiritual awareness.

Gu Feng was delirious with delight.
He had stumbled upon a Celestial grade cultivation manual, which was the highest classification for cultivation materials.
He was extremely excited, for this cultivation technique required one to cultivate all five spiritual roots, and seemed to be custom made for Gu Feng! 

The cultivation manual was titled ‘Spirit-Devouring Celestial Method.’ Using this technique, all five types of spiritual qi could be absorbed without aftereffects.
It was common knowledge that if a person wanted to make use of lingyao, they usually needed an alchemist to refine it into a pill before it could be consumed.
However, after practicing the aforementioned technique, Gu Feng could now directly consume lingyao without experiencing adverse side-effects.
There was just one downside to this cultivation method — when absorbing qi, one must carefully balance all five of the elements, or else risk a gruesome death.

That wasn’t even an issue for Gu Feng.
He could use the abundant qi in the spiritual tarn to fuel his cultivation, as it already contained all five elements in equilibrium.
At long last he could see his wish for revenge begin to come within reach.

He had previously planned for the two of them to build their foundations first, and then he would take Su Mujin to a secret realm to gain experience.
But now he could see there was no need.
Based on his memories, a secret realm containing spiritual ruins would open up in five year’s time.

In ancient times, immortals had perished within those spiritual ruins, leaving behind their hermitage.
Only cultivators who had yet to reach the nascent soul period were qualified to enter.
His previous incarnation had been in closed door cultivation when the spiritual ruins had appeared, so he had missed out on the opportunity.
It was rumored that within the ruins were myriad lingyao, cultivation manuals, and treasures of the highest rank.
Of course, such incredible gains also came with great danger.
Previously, nearly all the cultivators in the foundation building period who had entered the ruins failed to gain anything, and not a few golden core stage cultivators also perished.
But, if a cultivator managed to obtain one of the treasures within and come out alive, then their future was boundless. 

Gu Feng hadn’t originally planned to take Su Mujin to the spiritual ruins because he couldn’t guarantee that he had the capability to achieve the cultivation stage of golden core within five years, and it was far too dangerous to allow Su Mujin to go alone.
But with this cultivation method, it would be a piece of cake for him to reach the golden core stage within that limited time frame, so now they could proceed with entering the spiritual ruins.

“Xiao Jin, for the next five years, we’ll stay here and cultivate.
I’m going to go out and buy some supplies. Now that your gege is rich, is there anything you’d like me to get for you?” Gu Feng felt elated to the point that, as he was speaking, he began to float off the ground.


“Gege?” Su Mujin’s attention was completely focused on this single word.

“What? Is there a problem? We’re not strangers, so you should be calling me gege already!” Gu Feng dispensed with decorum in his excitement, his speech becoming more and more unrestrained. 

“N-no, it’s not a problem .
I don’t need anything.
Gege should leave now so you can return as soon as possible.” Su Mujin felt extremely vexed, as the impairment caused by his poisoning seemed to be hindering him more and more frequently.

Gu Feng didn’t insist.
It was clear that Su Mujin would be fine on his own for a bit.
In order to prevent the recurrence of last time’s awkward incident, Gu Feng left in a rush, quickly purchasing what he needed before instantly returning.
He didn’t want to remain in the outside world a second longer than necessary.

“Here you go.
Cultivation manuals, various pills — including a foundation building pill — are within.
Gege treats you well, eh .
.” Gu Feng spoke as he tossed a storage ring to Su Mujin.

“Yeah .
Gege treats me the best.” Su Mujin pounced on Gu Feng and hugged him.
He spoke directly into Gu Feng’s ear, deliberately emphasizing the word ‘Gege.’ 

Gu Feng’s face turned red. This kid! Why was he always pulling this sort of bathetic stunt?

In a flash, five years passed by while they cultivated .
