As he carried the broken books with the cloth, Chufeng happily returned back to the tavern.
The current Sumei was not angry and pouting anymore. Instead, there was a sweet smile hung on her face and she was also happy as well.
“Oi, did you find a treasure within this pile of rotten books?” After entering the room, Sumei smiled and said.
“So you were acting just now.”
Seeing the weird Sumei, Chufeng figured out that she was intentionally acting like that. She obviously discovered Chufeng’s intentions.
“If you said nothing and gave a Spiritual Bead to him, that old man would certainly raise the price. If I didn’t try to oppose you, how would you get it so easily?”
“That’s right, what treasure did you get? Hurry up and show it to me.” Sumei was very impatient and took the books off from Chufeng’s shoulder.
After rummaging through the pile book, finally, he picked one out. The book was also covered with dust, but it was obviously different from the others.
Although the book was shabby, it was still undamaged. It gave an unadorned feeling just by looking at it. In Chufeng’s hands, he could feel that the book’s materials were special.
Chufeng used his hand to wipe the book, and after the dust was cleared, a few words appeared. “Secret Spirit Techniques”!
Sumei grabbed the “Secret Spirit Techniques”. After cleaning it with detail for a while, she said with a bit of shock, “If this ‘Secret Spirit Techniques’ is real, then you’ve earned quite a profit.”
“Although this Secret Spirit Techniques can only be used by people with the Spirit power, the market price is absolutely no lower than 1000 Spiritual Beads. Strange. Why would that old guy hide such a good thing under the books? Ah! I know. That old guy must not know how to read.”
“That expensive?” Hearing Sumei’s words, Chufeng was shocked at first, but following that was huge happiness. It meant that this time, he picked up a huge deal.
“But, let’s take a core disciple in the Green Dragon School that has the Spirit power as an example. Although he has the Spirit power, he does not have the cultivation methods. If you sold this Secret Spirit Techniques to him, he would give an even high price because this thing is a precious treasure that is in high demand yet is lacking in merchandise.” Sumei said as if she was proud of herself.
“Haha, after I finish using this, wouldn’t I earn a lot when I sell it out?” Chufeng was crazily happy. 1000 Spiritual Beads could probably break him straight into the Origin realm.
“This secret book is just some controlling techniques for the Spirit power and not the cultivating methods for a World Spiritist.”
“If you can truly grasp the power of the Boundary Formation and became a World Spiritist, at that time, many schools will ask you to join them. The offerings that the schools will give you would be enough for you to become a real rich person.”
“Do you know how much our World Spiritist in the Green Dragon School gets?”
“Every month, he gets one Profound Bead. One Profound Bead is equivalent to 1000 Origin Beads, and one Origin Bead is equivalent to 1000 Spiritual Beads. Which means, every month, he can get 1 million Spiritual Beads from the Green Dragon School.” Sumei explained.
“My Gods, 1 million Spiritual Beads every month? That’s unbelieveable.” Chufeng was endlessly stunned. Today, to him, one Spiritual Bead was already extremely precious. He didn’t even dare to think of 1 million.
“Even so, that World Spiritist only reluctantly accepted it. If it wasn’t because he had his eyes on our treasures in our Green Dragon School, he would not be a guest elder in the Green Dragon School.”
“Treasures? What treasures?” Chufeng was filled with curiosity.
“You know the Thousand Bone Graveyard in the Spiritual Medicine Mountain? People guessed that there are treasures in that Thousand Bone Graveyard. And that World Spiritist came here for those treasures.” Sumei continued to explain.
“So it’s that place.” Chufeng was stunned once again. He never would have thought that there would be treasures in that dark and scary forest.
But after some careful thinking, he could understand that. After all, the Spirit power that he had today did not come with his birth. It was gained from the Thousand Bone Graveyard. So, he felt that perhaps the Thousand Bone Graveyard really did have treasures.
“What’s wrong? Why do you have this expression?”
“It’s nothing.” Chufeng hurriedly shook his head. He couldn’t tell Sumei that he was trapped in the Thousand Bone Graveyard, saw a glowing old man in there, and even got the Spirit power from that place right? That was too outrageous so Chufeng couldn’t easily tell other people.
“Okay, I can see that you really want to try this Secret Spirit Techniques so I won’t bother you anymore.”
Sumei returned the Secret Spirit Techniques to Chufeng and also took out something from her waist purse to give to Chufeng, “Here, this is your reward for going out for a walk with me!”
Looking at it, Chufeng discovered that in Sumei’s palm, there was a sack-like thing. But it was obvious not a normal sack because the materials were very special and it was filled with symbols on the surface.
After looking at that item, Chufeng instantly took in a breath of cool air and exclaimed, “A Heaven and Earth Sack?”
[TN: Heaven and Earth Sack -> HE Sack]
The HE Sack. Although the size of the sack was not big, the heavens and the earth were contained within it. It could store all sorts of items without any extra weight. It was the magical equipment for storing items.
But the creation of the HE sack was extremely complicated so the price was extremely high. It was not something normal people could use.
Chu Yuanba wanted to buy one before, but at the end, because the price was too high, he gave up on it. So, to Chufeng, this was an item of extravagance yet Sumei was giving it to him.
“What are you looking at? Go and cultivate.” Sumei put the HE sack in Chufeng’s hands and prepared to leave.
“Sumei, why are you so good to me?” Holding the HE sack in his hands, Chufeng’s gaze towards Sumei was filled with appreciation.
“No reason. It’s just that every member of the Wings Alliance has one and only you don’t. So, it’s to avoid you being in a poor state. In a few days when the tomb opens, you can’t be carrying two huge bags like what you did at the Spiritual Medicine Hunt right? If it came to that, it would be strange if no one robbed you.”
Sumei smiled and didn’t give Chufeng an answer. But, just as she left the room, she looked back and said, “If you don’t understand why, then you can take it as me trying to rope you in.”
After saying that, Sumei left. Looking at the door that was slowly closing, Chufeng felt a wave of warmth in his heart. Regardless of the reason, Sumei really treated him well.
Sitting cross-legged on the bed, Chufeng impatiently opened the Secret Spirit Techniques. Only then did he confirm that they really were techniques that helped the user to control the Spirit power.
It could let the Spirit power wander and observe objects in detail. As long as the Spirit power was strong enough, even if someone hid their aura, he could still look through their true strength.
The ones who used it well could disturb the awareness of an opponent with a formless Spirit power. It had unimaginable uses in battle.
In short, the Secret Spirit Techniques book was certainly a good thing. To Chufeng, it would have great uses in the future.
