Chapter 591 An Eye for an Eye
Saionji Tsunekatsu quickly made a seal with his hands. His ring finger and little finger curled up, and his thumb, index finger, and middle finger stretched out straight. The tips of his fingers faced each other and pressed down on the ground. Zhenqi flowed all through his body, and soon a red dot of cinnabar appeared between his eyebrows. The red dot cast a red light, which just happened to s.h.i.+ne into the center of his fingers.
In an instant, a white mist appeared within the frame of Saionji Tsunekatsu's fingers. In the white mist, the scene of Kris, Ling Yue, and the others talking in the room clearly appeared.
Saionji Tsunekatsu snorted coldly. As he thought about it, the white mist quickly changed again, transforming to show the scene of the room in which Li Yundong and the others were.
However, after searching around, Saionji Tsunekatsu still couldn't find Li Yundong. He was startled for a while until he found another room. However, even after looking through almost all the rooms in the building, he still couldn't find Li Yundong.
Saionji Tsunekatsu was shocked. He stayed where he was and looked at the man next to him, who was also stunned. He couldn't help saying, "Tobaku, what should we do? Where is Li Yundong?"
Tobaku was also stunned and said, "Chang Sheng, haven't we been keeping an eye on the door and not seen him come out? Does he know how to become invisible?"
Saionji Tsunekatsu said angrily, "If you live in the downtown area, why do you use this kind of shady magic?"
Tobaku said with a frightened face, "Chang Sheng, if we can't complete the task, what should we do? Masako Tachibana has put the burden of responsibility on us... so..."
Saionji Tsunekatsu looked gloomy and gritted his teeth. Tobaku suddenly asked tentatively, "Chang Sheng, why don't we... kidnap one of Li Yundong's subordinates and force him to go with us?"
Saionji Tsunekatsu immediately turned his head and scolded, "Fool! What the h.e.l.l are you thinking! Didn't you see that that woman was very powerful just now? Although I am sure that I can defeat her and send a challenge letter to their home without anyone knowing, I am not sure that I can take a living person away right before her eyes without anyone noticing! If there is a conflict and the local government is made aware, how will it end?"
The monks of Zhenyan Tantrism were divided into 16 levels. Among them, the monks were the highest-ranking, and their divine power and mastery of the Buddhist doctrines were extremely powerful and abnormal. Saionji Tsunekatsu had received the t.i.tle of the 12th-level young monk at a young age. Not only was he allowed to wear a purple-gold ca.s.sock, but his status and strength were far above those of the ninth-level monk, Tobaku. As soon as he scolded him, Tobaku's face immediately turned red. He didn't dare to refute and repeatedly admitted his mistake.
After Saionji Tsunekatsu reprimanded him, his eyes flickered, and he was thinking about how to deal with the situation unwillingly. However, the voice coming from the frame of his fingers suddenly attracted his attention.
After entering the Fox Zen School with Kris, Ling Yue curiously looked her up and down and asked, "Has Sect Leader accepted you as his disciple?"
Kris shook her head. "No, I am just a t.i.tular disciple."
Ling Yue, like Su Chan, thought that Li Yundong shouldn't have accepted a foreign student as a disciple, but she couldn't question Li Yundong's decision, so she hid her qualms.
At this time, Kris was still thinking about the two j.a.panese people at the door, so she asked, "Why have these two j.a.panese guys been guarding the door all this time?"
Ling Yue pursed her lips and said, "Leader made that Tachibana Wakako girl cry and beat her up, annoying her followers. Her mother was unhappy, so she wrote a challenge letter to ask the leader of the sect for a one-on-one fight. But Leader has been meditating in seclusion, so how can anyone see him? Let alone have him go to j.a.pan."
She asked curiously, "Meditating in seclusion?" Since she had witnessed all kinds of magical deeds from Li Yundong last time, she had slowly become interested in the mysterious magical powers of the East. After returning home, she had also read a lot of books about it, so she also knew what meditating in seclusion meant.
Kris became more and more curious as she looked around the room. With a perplexed expression, she said, "Seclusion here? Are you kidding? Isn't secluding yourself about finding a quiet place where no one can disturb you?"
Ling Yue glanced at Kris in surprise and thought to herself, "This foreigner's Chinese is decent, and on top of that she actually knows the meaning of meditating in seclusion?"
Ling Yue was surprised. She couldn't help but smile and say, "Of course I couldn't do it here. This place is part of the secular world and is pretty noisy. How could it be suitable for that purpose?"
Kris asked in confusion, "Then where did Li Yundong go? I heard from the j.a.panese people outside that he hasn't come out."
Ling Yue laughed and said, "I can't tell you that, it's a secret. It would be bad if people knew that he was in seclusion and went to disturb him. Moreover, these two j.a.panese are so stupid that they only know how to stand outside the main door like a pair of lemons. Don't they know that we never use the main door?"
Kris opened her mouth wide and asked in surprise, "You don't use the main door? Then what do you use?"
Ling Yue pointed to the balcony and laughed. "Don't you know that Chinese people like to use back doors?" Her words were double-edged and humorous. Everyone in the Fox Zen School laughed.
However, Kris didn't find it funny at all. Her gaze was strange as she walked to the balcony. After looking left and right, she inwardly shook her head.
At this time, the little fox who had returned to the sofa shouted to Ling Yue, "Hey, Ling Yue s.h.i.+jie, I'm trying to watch TV here! Get out of the way!"
Ling Yue and the little foxes had been watching TV all this time. They had been hara.s.sed by Saionji Tsunekatsu to the point that they could no longer bear it, so they had left it all behind for a while. At this time, she was reminded by her fellow disciples from the same sect, so she immediately sat to one side with great enthusiasm and asked, "Which episode is it? Hey? Why are you watching the news? Who changed the channel? I don't want to watch this garbage. Change it quickly, change the channel quickly!"
The little foxes were about to change their seats when they heard Kris suddenly shout in alarm, "Don't change, wait! Look, look, what's this?"
The little foxes first shot strange looks at Kris, only to see her rus.h.i.+ng to the TV with a face lit up with excitement, pointing at the TV and shouting.
Kris's unusual behavior caused everyone to look at her. Even the usually cold and indifferent Ao Wushuang couldn't help but turn her head to stare. However, when Ao Wushuang looked at her, she was so shocked that her entire body trembled and her eyes went wide.
On the TV screen that Kris was frantically pointing at, a reporter was interviewing a man dressed as a villager. The man was holding a purple-gold furnace tripod about three feet long in his arms. The tripod was surrounded by a white mist. At first glance, one could tell that it was no ordinary object. If it was not the medicine king tripod, what else could it be?
Even though Ao Wushuang was used to unexpected turns of events, she couldn't help but exclaim, "The Medicine King Tripod?"
Hearing the words "Medicine King Tripod", all the people in the Fox Zen School were shocked. Cao Yi and Liu Yuehong stared at the TV with their eyes wide. The little foxes were even more shocked and said, "No way, such a supreme pill-refining magic treasure like the Medicine King Tripod is on the news!? What, what the h.e.l.l is going on? How could such an important powerful magical weapon have been picked up by this guy?"
After the battle at Tiandu Peak, Kris's impression of the Diyuan Jindan and Medicine King Tripod was extremely deep. In her opinion, it was precisely because of these two mysterious eastern treasures that a terrifying battle had broken out in the first place, and her fate had changed completely from that moment on.
Ling Yue stared at the Medicine King Tripod with her eyes wide open and said in surprise, "Is that the legendary powerful magical weapon used by the medicine king Sun Simiao? Is this really happening?"
The little foxes also came up to the TV one after another. They couldn't wait to set their eyes on the screen and carefully look at the legendary powerful magical weapon up close. After a moment, they sighed and said, "Oh, the Medicine King Tripod is so beautiful!"
"Yes, this guy is holding the Medicine King Tripod. Isn't he afraid of landing himself in trouble?"
"Tsk, you're so stupid. Can't you see that he's found all these reporters? Now that this has been broadcast, everyone in the world knows that he has the Medicine King Tripod. Now, even cultivators who want to kill him will be wary of him."
"That's right, s.h.i.+jie. You're so smart!"
The little foxes chattered. At this time, the cameras turned to an old expert. The old expert had silver hair and was seriously expounding upon his opinion and theories regarding the cultural relic that the villager had picked up.
When Ao Wushuang heard the expert deduce the origin of this antique relic with a vague sentence, she couldn't help frowning and whispering, "What are you doing, making such a big fuss?"
She was full of doubts, but soon the picture changed again and returned to the presenter, who said, "The villagers in Mount Huangshan's scenic area are claiming that this treasure is his family heirloom. On the first day of its discovery, someone offered three million yuan to buy it from him, but this bid was turned down. Now the villagers say that they want to auction the treasure. Only the highest bidder will be able to get their hands on it..."
Hearing this, the people in the room suddenly burst into an uproar!
Ling Yue was shocked and said, "What? This person is actually auctioning the Medicine King Tripod? Isn't that ridiculous? How much will it cost to buy it?"
Cao Yi stamped her feet repeatedly and said, "d.a.m.n it, Leader is meditating in seclusion, and we have no way to tell him the news. What should we do?"
At this time, almost everyone looked at Ao Wushuang, viewing her as the decision-maker of the hour.
Ao Wushuang pondered for a while before announcing in a low voice, "Don't panic. Such a treasure can't be auctioned in a short time. Even if they want to sell it, they'll have to prepare for it for a while. I hope Leader will come out of seclusion before everything is settled!"
But Ling Yue said with a sad face, "Oh, it's not easy for the Leader to come out of seclusion! We don't lack anything now except money! Where are we going to raise the money to win at this auction? Are we going to sell the Disanxian?"
The other little foxes immediately shook their heads like rattle drums. "No, no, no. If you sell that, we won't have any pocket money to spend!"
Cao Yi also shook her head and said, "Selling the shop wouldn't bring in enough cash anyway. This Medicine King Tripod will definitely sell for a tremendous price. I'm afraid... we can't afford it!"
Next to them all, Kris was absorbed in listening. She suddenly said in a probing tone, "If you're short of money... I can lend you a bit."
"You?" Everyone's gaze s.h.i.+fted towards Kris in unison.
Kris hesitated for a moment, then bit her lips and firmly nodded. "Mm, there's still a few million left!"
Everyone gasped. "A few million! That's not a small amount! How could the Leader of the sect have chosen a rich woman as his disciple?"
However, Ao Wushuang shook her head and said, "A few million yuan is not enough! If a powerful magical weapon like the Medicine King Tripod got sold for only a few million yuan, you'd really look down on us Chinese cultivators. Let's not talk about other sects, such as the Zhengyi School, Quanzhen Dragon Sect, External Alchemy, and even the Jinshan Sect. Their financial resources are beyond our imagination!"
Kris said in a troubled manner, "But I only have this much. What should I do?"
Ao Wushuang thought for a moment before saying, "Let's raise money before Leader comes out of his seclusion. I'll think of a way to raise as much as I can. We can only take it one step at a time. The rest is up to fate."
At this time, when Saionji Tsunekatsu, who was outside the door, heard this, he suddenly stood up. Tobaku, who was next to him, also jumped up and cursed, "d.a.m.n it, we have been guarding the front, but Li Yundong actually ran away from behind! Is he just a cowardly rodent?"
However, Saionji Tsunekatsu's eyes flickered and he did not answer. After a long time, he suddenly turned his head and said to Tobaku, "Tobaku, immediately report to Masako Tachibana. Tell her that the supreme pill-refining powerful magical weapon of the Chinese cultivation world, the Medicine King Tripod, has appeared! She will definitely be interested when she finds out about this news! With the financial resources of our Zhenyan Tantrism sect, if they come to partic.i.p.ate in the auction, they will definitely be captured! At that time, whether they take this powerful magical weapon as their own or lure Li Yundong to Mount Kōya, no doubt he will not be able to escape!"
Hearing these words, Tobaku was overjoyed. "Chang Sheng, this is a good idea! Two birds with one stone! You truly deserve to be the youngest, most promising monk!"
Saionji Tsunekatsu snorted and said, "Let's go. I'd like to see the look on Li Yundong's face when he sees that the supreme powerful magical weapon of the Chinese cultivation world has fallen into our hands!"
After that, he sneered and left with a swish of his sleeves.
At this time, on Mount Tianlong, which was thousands of miles away from Tiannan City, Li Yundong, Su Chan, Zi Yuan, and Zhou Qin had all just entered into the deepest state of seclusion.
