Nine Evolutions of the True Spirit Chapter 43 - Chen Lian

When it came to the most famous mystic instrument forger on Di Kun Island, that would naturally be Old Man Chen’s Smith Shop.

Back when he was still just a young man, Old Man Chen was fortunate enough to acquire a Mystic-class low-grade spirit fire—Pebbly Jade Fire. With the help of the spirit fire, Old Man Chen’s smithery skills improved greatly and he gradually made his fame. However, when word of his spirit fire leaked out, he started gaining unwanted attention.

Just when the younger Old Man Chen was at a loss and didn’t know what to do, a cultivator whose damaged life-weapon he helped repair then stood out. After his recovery, the cultivator had advanced into the Core Forging Realm and became an Enlightened Master as well as a core disciple in Zhen Ling Sect. The cultivator was grateful for Old Man Chen’s help and announced that the forger was under his protection, which saved Old Man Chen from being targeted.

After that, the aforementioned Enlightened Master was then assigned to Di Kun Island and Old Man Chen also opened his smith shop here. With the help of Pebbly Jade Fire, coupled with his exquisite craftsmanship, his business bloomed.

As Old Man Chen grew increasingly famous, his original name was forgotten and everyone just started calling him Old Man Chen.

Lu Ping arrived at Old Man Chen’s smith shop and spotted a young man inside. The young man looked to be in his twenties and was clad in a Zhen Ling Sect uniform.

The young man smiled gently. “Spare the formalities. I’ve just advanced not long ago myself. I’m your senior in the side hall, perhaps just a batch earlier than you. Are you here to craft a mystic instrument?”

Even when the young man was humble, Lu Ping still didn’t dare to address him as his senior martial brother. He replied politely, “That’s right, this junior is here to ask Mister Chen to help me craft an armored vest and to also upgrade a mystic instrument.”

The young man looked at Lu Ping who still spoke formally and smiled. “I am Chen Lian, son of the Old Man Chen you seek. Please call me Senior Martial Brother Chen, I’m still not used to being addressed as a master immortal yet. My father is in the middle of forging a mystic instrument in the smithy. You’ll have to wait until he’s done.”

Seeing that the young man wasn’t someone who took such customs seriously, Lu Ping felt that he would be overdoing it if he kept refusing. Hence, he said, “Thank you, Senior Martial Brother Chen. Then, I’ll wait here.”

After that, the duo sat down and talked about interesting stories that happened in the side hall. Some time later, an old man with white hair and a red face walked out from the smithy behind the shop. Spotting them, he said to Chen Lian, “You’re back?”

Chen Lian chuckled. “Well, isn’t the auction about to happen? I estimate tha
