CSG - Chapter 3101: Explosive Growth of the Soul

Time trickled by silently. In the blink of an eye, a good part of the year had passed already. Only three months remained before Jian Chen returned to the Tian Yuan clan.

Jian Chen did not remain in the Watercloud Hall during this final period of time. Instead, he summoned everyone who had originally ventured to the Saints’ World with him from the Tian Yuan Continent.

Shangguan Mu’er, Qing Yixuan, Nubis, Xiao Jin, and Xiao Ling all gathered together.

They were the only ones who remained with the Tian Yuan clan now after coming to the Saints’ World together back then.

Shen Jian and Sacredfeather were cultivating with the Wind Venerable, while Rui Jin, Hong Lian, and Hei Yu had left the Tian Yuan clan a long time ago. Jian Chen had owed a great favour to them back then on the Tian Yuan Continent. No one knew where they had gone.

As for the people from the World of Forsaken Saints who had followed the Spiritking, Shen Jian, up from the lower world like Xiong Zhong and Cheng Jingyun, they had left the Tian Yuan clan a long time ago too.

They had left the Cloud Plane to wander the Saints’ World alone.

Kai Ya had died to the Elder of Mountains and Seas many years ago.

Fairy Hao Yue was heavily injured and in the Heavenly Palace of Bisheng right now. Even Jian Chen did not know how she was faring.

As for uncle Houston, Jian Chen had learnt from Mo Tianyun that he had been accepted as a disciple by the master of the Empyrean Demon Orb. He had spent the past few years cultivating in seclusion within the Empyrean Demon Orb.

The five people before him were all that remained by Jian Chen’s side.

“Jian Chen, I won’t be going to the Saints’ World. I’ve basically been reduced to a cripple, so it’s inconvenient for me to move around outside. I don’t really have any attachments to the lower world either, so it’s best if I spend my time in peace in the Tian Yuan clan,” Nubis sat back in the chair lazily and said in an unconcerned manner.

Jian Chen nodded. He looked at Nubis and said solemnly, “Nubis, don’t worry. I’ll definitely find a Sovereign Fruit of the Dragon God this time so that you can make a complete recovery.”

“I don’t plan on returning either. I have no attachments to the lower world, so even if I go back, it’s pointless,” said Qing Yixuan. She was indifferent.

“Fair enough. The resources on the Tian Yuan Continent are scarce, nowhere near as abundant as the Saints’ World. If you go to the Tian Yuan Continent, it’ll only get in the way of your cultivation.” Jian Chen looked at Qing Yixuan and showed a sliver of delight. “Qing Yixuan, you should be reaching the Primordial realm soon.”

Qing Yixuan had only come to the Saints’ World recently, but she had obtained the swordmaster Yun Chi’s golden core of Laws of the Sword, so her progress in the recent years could only be described as swift and vigorous. Her future accomplishments would be limitless too.

Noticing Jian Chen’s delight, Qing Yixuan immediately felt strange inside. She shot a glance at Jian Chen in displeasure and snorted. “Don’t look at me like that. Don’t forget, I’m a few thousand years older than you.”

Jian Chen smiled and asked, “Mu’er, Xiao Jin, Xiao Ling, what about you? Are you ready to go down with me?”

“Ah! Do you even need to ask me? Both master and big brother Jian Chen are going, so of course, I have to come along. Hmph, big brother Jian Chen, you and master are not allowed to abandon Xiao Ling and leave by yourselves, or Xiao Ling will ignore you in the future,” said Xiao Ling. As for Xiao Jin, Jian Chen knew the answer without even asking him. These two natural spirits never seemed to have separated ever since they had met each other.

“You don’t need to ask me. I’ll be coming along no matter what. We already have a footing in the Saints’ World now, so I’ll bring Xiao Bao up with us this time.” That was Shangguan Mu’er’s resolve.

“Jian Chen, I might not be able to return to the Tian Yuan Continent. In three days’ time, I need to return to the Heavenly Palace of Bisheng for secluded cultivation. It might be a very long time before I see you again.” Ming Dong was dejected. He seemed completely unwilling.

“I’m only still attached to one person on the Tian Yuan Continent, which is the great elder of Mercury City, uncle Tian. My brother, you have to bring uncle Tian up with you this time.”

Three days later, the eighth majesty of the Heavenly Palace of Bisheng, Bai Rong, came to the Tian Yuan clan personally and forcefully took the reluctant Ming Dong away. Ming Xie and Yun Xiaoyan left soon afterwards.

In the blink of an eye, another month had passed. Only two months remained before they headed off for the Tian Yuan Continent. Mo Tianyun returned with Ning Shuang.

As soon as he saw Jian Chen, Mo Tianyun frowned. Despite Jian Chen doing his best to hide it, how could he fool the eyes of an expert like Mo Tianyun with his feebleness?

“What happened? How did you end up like this?” Mo Tianyun asked with a frown.

“In order to give fairy Hao Yue a chance at survival, I attempted the Bridge of Life and Death from the Heavenly Palace of Bisheng, so I paid a price.”

“And how did it turn out?”

“Fortunately, everything worked out. Fairy Hao Yue’s wounds should not be a concern anymore.” Jian Chen smiled with ease.

Mo Tianyun nodded. He scanned Jian Chen carefully with his sharp gaze as if he was trying to understand Jian Chen inside and out.

“Your soul is far too injured. It might affect our trip to the Xuanhuang Microcosm. After all, opening up the Xuanhuang Microcosm requires your assistance. But it’s fine. The issue with your soul isn’t that difficult to deal with.” As Mo Tianyun said that, a puresoul immediately appeared out of thin air.

“This is the puresoul refined from the Saint of Grand Harmony’s soul. It’s also what I promised to you back then. It’s basically perfect for you right now.”

“The injuries to your soul are extremely severe. The very foundations are already damaged. Under this state, there are only a very small number of resources in the world that can still heal you, but puresouls happen to be one of them.”

Mo Tianyun pressed down on the top of Jian Chen’s head gently, and the puresoul immediately merged with his soul. At the same time, he said, “Refine it quickly!”

Jian Chen immediately felt a cluster of extremely pure power surge into his soul. The puresoul to Jian Chen’s feeble soul was like sudden irrigation to a parched rice field. Not only did the puresoul revive its vitality, it even began to prosper and flourish too.

Jian Chen subconsciously closed his eyes and began to dismiss his thoughts, focusing on absorbing the puresoul.

The puresoul turned into a ball of pure and tremendous energy, rapidly merging with Jian Chen’s soul. Immediately, he began to recover at an unbelievable rate.

The puresoul did not do something as simple as heal Jian Chen’s soul. It touched on the very structure of his soul, repairing and consolidating its foundations.

After all, this was a puresoul refined from a Grand Prime. The energy it contained was nowhere close to what its original master’s soul possessed, but it triumphed in quality. Such a tremendous and high level puresoul obviously brought immeasurable benefits to Jian Chen’s soul.

The energy from the puresoul was rapidly depleted. Jian Chen’s damaged foundations were completely repaired in an extremely short amount of time.

After repairing the foundations, quite a bit of the energy still remained. Without a master, it all merged with Jian Chen’s soul, causing his soul to swell up at a visible rate.

Very soon, his feeble soul that was less than a third of its peak condition had recovered to a half of its peak condition.

However, it did not stop there. His soul continued to grow and recover, getting closer and closer to its peak condition.

Mo Tianyun remained right by his side during this process. His eyes remained glued to Jian Chen, constantly paying attention to the changes in his soul and the situation of his recovery.

However, his frown gradually deepened. He murmured to himself, “His soul has merged with a sliver of true Chaotic Force, so it’s different from regular cultivators’. As a result, when it recovers, the amount of puresouls it requires is far more than other cultivations. I originally thought this puresoul alone could completely cure all of the problems and make his soul grow drastically. As it seems, I was too optimistic.”

With a flip of his hand, another puresoul appeared, also of quite a high grade. Not only was the quality of the energy inside high, but the quantity was alarming too.

This had also been refined from a Grand Prime’s soul!

“I refined this puresoul from a Grand Prime from the Ice Pole Plane. He wasn’t as powerful as the Saint of Grand Harmony, but it’s more complete than the Saint of Grand Harmony’s puresoul. I’ll give them both to you today.” As he said that, Mo Tianyun sent the second Grand Prime’s puresoul into Jian Chen’s head without any hesitation.

With the second puresoul, the rate at which Jian Chen’s soul grew immediately increased abruptly. Very soon, his soul had completely returned to its peak condition.

However, the energy within the puresouls did not run out. After making a full recovery, his soul continued to grow, becoming stronger and stronger, larger and larger. It climbed towards a higher realm in an unstoppable manner.

Suddenly, there was a rumble in Jian Chen’s soul. At that moment, his soul seemed to overcome some kind of restraint. It experienced a qualitative change, stepping into a whole new realm.

Chaotic Prime!

At this moment, Jian Chen’s soul had broken through to Chaotic Prime before everything else! It was currently at the First Heavenly Layer of Chaotic Prime.

However, that was not the end! His soul continued to grow rapidly. Not only did it continue, but the rate of absorption almost became two or three times greater than before with his soul’s breakthrough and as his soul strengthened.

Boom!

Abruptly, Jian Chen’s soul shook. He made another breakthrough, reaching the Second Heavenly Layer of Chaotic Prime with his soul!

He still did not stop. There was still energy remaining in the puresoul, which merged with Jian Chen’s soul at an even faster rate.

The Third Heavenly Layer of Chaotic Prime.

The Fourth Heavenly Layer of Chaotic Prime.

The Fifth Heavenly Layer of Chaotic Prime.

Finally, after reaching the Fifth Heavenly Layer of Chaotic Prime, the two puresouls from Grand Primes ran out of all of their energy.
