Just like how it was possible to see further the higher up one was, someone who possessed senior Wind’s level of cultivation obviously stood at the apex of the universe, so he had an extremely good understanding of just how powerful Chaotic Force was.
In his knowledge, Chaotic Force was a supreme power that no one could control. Even though there were people who cultivated Chaotic Force in the world, the Chaotic Force they possessed was all fake Chaotic Force, without a single exception. It could not be regarded as true Chaotic Force at all.
But at this moment, he actually sensed the hint of a presence that belonged to true Chaotic Force from Jian Chen’s droplet of essence blood, which obviously filled him with shock.
The appearance of a sliver of true Chaotic Force had completely overturned his knowledge of the world, his understanding of the universe, and his beliefs about the great ways.
True Chaotic Force had actually appeared on a cultivator. To senior Wind, that was something that should never, ever happen.
Senior Wind was left shocked for a good while before finally returning to his senses. He sucked in a deep breath and slowly calmed himself down. Afterwards, his gaze towards Jian Chen underwent an overwhelming change.
What kind of gaze was that?
He seemed like he was looking at a monster, yet it was also like he had just discovered a brand-new continent. It was filled with various forms of intrigue and disbelief.
“J- just how did you achieve it?” Senior Wind asked.
“When I fused the swords last time, I suffered a backlash from Chaotic Force, but I didn’t die in the end. It was also at that time that a strand of true Chaotic Force fused with my body.” Jian Chen hid nothing and told him the truth, as he also understood something like that could only work on him. It could not be replicated.
“Fused the swords… Fused the swords… The previous master of the Azulet swords died in the end exactly because of fusing the swords…” Senior Wind murmured. As if he had recalled some matters and legends of the past, he became dazed.
“Senior Wind, is my chaotic essence blood effective or not?” Jian Chen returned to the main topic of interest in a hurry. He knew senior Wind would not stay sane for too long, so he was afraid of running out of time before they could even achieve anything if this continued.
The Wind Venerable looked at Jian Chen. He sighed gently. “I didn’t think that I, the Wind Venerable who shook up the Saints’ World, would actually require help from a junior at the end of the day. The matters of the world are truly unpredictable…”
“So be it. I’ll try your special chaotic essence blood then and see if it’ll be of any help to me.” The Wind Venerable touched the chaotic essence blood gently with his finger, and it immediately merged into his body.
Afterwards, the Wind Venerable sat down with his legs crossed and closed his eyes as if he had entered a meditative state.
Jian Chen stared straight at the Wind Venerable, waiting there patiently. He was filled with anticipation.
He knew that even if the Wind Venerable was not doomed like the sword spirits had described him to be, he only had a success rate of thirty percent, which was still too low.
As a result, he also hoped that his chaotic essence blood would help the Wind Venerable resolve his problems.
“I hope the sword spirits aren’t wrong this time,” Jian Chen thought. After learning about the Artifact Soul race, he realised that the sword spirits were not all-knowing and all-capable, so only when he received direct confirmation from senior Wind could he truly stop worrying about whether his chaotic essence blood was of any help to senior Wind.
Jian Chen did not wait for long. Roughly five minutes later, senior Wind opened his eyes slowly. His gaze became extremely sharp, brimming with vigour, together with an undisguisable sense of elation and joy.
“Senior Wind, how is it?” Jian Chen immediately asked.
Senior Wind laughed aloud and said, “My little friend Jian Chen, you really are my saviour. I never thought your chaotic essence blood can actually help me merge with the artifact.”
Jian Chen became overjoyed with that. His heart in his throat completely settled down.
“What’s actually helpful to me should be the presence of the strand of Chaotic Force. Even though the presence is weak, it’s still on too high of a level after all. It can suppress the artifact from a certain respect.” Reaching there, the Wind Venerable frowned again. “But to me, a single droplet of essence blood is still nowhere near enough…”
“You have nothing to worry about, senior Wind. All that matters is it’s useful to you. You don’t have to worry about the chaotic essence blood either. I’ll provide it to you no matter how much you require,” Jian Chen said with great generosity. Although essence blood was extremely limited to all cultivators, he could always slowly recover it once he exhausted it.
The only problem was it would heavily sap the cultivator’s vigour, and it would take a long time to recover.
The Wind Venerable stared at Jian Chen sternly. “Jian Chen, do you know just how great of a loss it’ll cause you?”
“To other experts, severely depleting their essence blood will indeed affect them greatly, and they’ll recover extremely slowly too, but you can’t forget that I cultivate the Chaotic Body, senior Wind. The greatest advantage of the Chaotic Body is possessing an extremely startling recovery rate in all aspects. Losing some essence blood is nothing to me,” Jian Chen objected.
“Alright, alright. If that’s the case, I’ll have to trouble you for the next period of time.” Senior Wind did not act pretentiously. He gladly accepted his offer.
Jian Chen smiled with ease. Enduring the feeling of weakness, he handed another twenty droplets of chaotic essence blood to the Wind Venerable at once.
The loss of twenty droplets of essence blood immediately made him pale. His face became slightly haggard as if his vigour was heavily sapped.
However, Jian Chen did not care about this. He endured the feeling of weakness and said, “Senior Wind, I can only provide you with some chaotic essence blood every now and then. I also need time to recover.”
Senior Wind gazed at Jian Chen deeply. His expression was extremely mixed, but he said nothing at all. After taking out a great pile of various high quality God Tier pills and heavenly resources for recovery from his Space Ring and handing them to Jian Chen, he waved his hand and left with Jian Chen’s twenty droplets of chaotic essence blood.
Ever since they arrived on the nameless planet, this was the first time senior Wind had left while still sane.
After senior Wind left, Shen Jian and Sacredfeather both looked at Jian Chen. They were doubtful and curious.
Not only were they unable to hear anything from Jian Chen and senior Wind’s conversation earlier, but even space had been disturbed, blurring the scene inside. As such, they could not see what was going on either.
“Jian Chen, what’s going on with senior Wind?” Shen Jian asked. Ever since he met senior Wind, this was the first time he had seen senior Wind behave in such an abnormal fashion.
“Brother, why is your vigour sapped?” Sacredfeather stared at Jian Chen’s pale face curiously.
Jian Chen smiled mysteriously and said, “You don’t have to ask any more questions. All you have to know is that I’ve already found the way to save senior Wind. The day when senior Wind completely recovers isn’t far off.”
