Chapter 0151 – Instant Rise in Spiritual Consciousness
Ning Cheng suddenly looked at Meng Jing Xiu in a very strange manner as he thought of how this thing was related, but he still gave an ‘En’ sound and replied, “I often carry people on my back, counting you, it would be the fifth person for me to carry on my back.”
When Meng Jing Xiu asked about this matter, Ning Cheng was once again reminded of Ning Ruo Lan, he had carried her on his back innumerable times, now he simply was at a loss.
But a pale and weak looking ray of light suddenly interrupted Ning Cheng’s thoughts, this weak ray of light swept towards the side of Ning Cheng. But this weak ray of light gave Ning Cheng a sense of extreme danger, Ning Cheng did not think of anything else, and immediately started to descend.
Because Ning Cheng suddenly started to descend without any warning, Meng Jing Xiu involuntarily jerked her head to the side, directly looking at the endless Killing Intent emanating from the endlessly deep chasm. If she was an ordinary cultivator, then she would have already screamed and fainted on the spot. Meng Jing Xiu’s face immediately turned pale, she knew that once she fell into that black hole of a chasm, then it was certain death for her.
At this point Ning Cheng’s feet landed on a stone brick that was not larger than a foot wide, while his posture was ramrod straight while the stone brick made an angle of 45 degrees with the slope. But even though his feet were on the stone brick, it was as if he had stuck his feet into it, preventing him from falling into the deep ravine.
Ning Cheng had just jumped down, when that light ray just grazed past Ning Cheng’s nose, it even cut a few strands of Ning Cheng’s hair as they danced by him in the wind.
When this ray of light finally went past, Ning Cheng was once again standing atop the brick, but this time his forehead was covered with tiny beads of sweat.
“Senior Apprentice Brother Ning, that ray of light seemed to have been formed from a trace of Killing Intent……” Meng Jing Xiu spoke with a small voice in Ning Cheng’s ear.
Ning Cheng also spoke in a sinking voice, “Just now the Killing Intent present here had formed into an Axe Trace, I think that this is something that came from the black hole like deep valley, I did not think that we had to take precautions against the Axe Traces formed from the Killing Intent. It seems that wanting to leave from this place will be very difficult.”
There was still a sentence that Ning Cheng did not speak. Just now that single Axe Trace formed from Killing Intent had taken the form of a weak ray of light formed out of Killing Intent. Once he met this kind of an Axe Trace formed from the Killing Intent but without the form of the ray of light formed from the Killing Intent, then it would really be difficult for him to dodge.
“Senior Apprentice Brother Ning, I believe that even the heavens will never bar one’s way, looking here this place is certainly made artificially. There definitely must be a way for a person to come out of this artificial arrangement, otherwise it would absolutely be impossible for that exceptional person to get out. If the way out for that person was really cut out, then there really would not be this green brick for us to stop and rest.” Meng Jing Xiu consoled Ning Cheng.
Ning Cheng shook his head and said, “Here not all the things are completely man made, like these green bricks below our feet. Perhaps these are a part of a large Array Formation that was arranged out here, but as for the Killing Intent that is coming from the depths of the chasm, maybe it is something that had already existed here since before. I doubt that this person had built his Immortal Mansion here, as this chasm seems to be only a bottomless black hole.”
“Just what kind of use does this chasm even have?” Meng Jing Xiu had almost forgotten the situation that she and Ning Cheng were in.
“You can use it to cultivate Killing Intent, and it would even be more effective than trying to cultivate Killing Intent outside, but my experience is limited, as such I have yet to figure out what other uses are there for this chasm.” Ning Cheng said, as he looked at this chasm, he felt that cultivating one’s Killing Intent in this place would give the best result.
Just as Ning Cheng was speaking. Several Axe Traces condensed from Killing Intent swept towards them, moreover among them there were even one or two that did not form any rays of light.
Fortunately, Ning Cheng was extremely cautious. And as such he was able to evade these rays of Axe Traces.
Meng Jing Xiu who was strapped to Ning Cheng’s back was already very clear, that the things here were not as simple as she had made it out to be. She suddenly said, “Big Brother Ning, if you put me down, will you be able to leave this place?”
Ning Cheng laughed, “Junior Apprentice Sister Jing Xiu, you simply think too much. I am a person who will never abandon my own friends, much less a junior sister from the Academy where I am a Senior Apprentice Brother. If you want to go out, then everybody will go out together, if you cannot go out, then I will also stay together with you here. Besides, this place is filled with Axe Shadows formed with Killing Intent, even if we wanted to leave, just where can we go from here?”
Meng Jing Xiu was silent, she suddenly found that she was the one who did not understand Ning Cheng the most.
Ning Cheng also did not speak again, as he continued to stretch out his Spiritual Consciousness, and tried to resist the gloomy Killing Intent coming from within the depths of this chasm, moreover he also had to be prepared and was always on the lookout in the surroundings for the Axe Traces made from Killing Intent.
The two people finally turned silent, Meng Jing Xiu was silent because she was thinking of some other things, while Ning Cheng was silent because he was putting his entire mind at dealing with those Axe Traces condensed from Killing Intent which did not have any tell-tale signs.
After an unknown amount of time, Meng Jing Xiu once again opened her mouth and suddenly said, “Senior Apprentice Brother Ning, what would happen if we can’t get out?”
Ning Cheng was silent for a good long while and then replied, “At the moment I am not sure if we would be able to get out or not, but until the last moment, I will never give up.”
Meng Jing Xiu made an ‘en’ sound, and asked again, “Senior Apprentice Brother Ning, you said that you had carried five people on your back, were all of them girls?”
“That is true.” Ning Cheng truthfully answered.
“Are they all your friends?” Meng Jing Xiu once again asked.
Ning Cheng said after a moment of thought, “Accurately speaking two of them cannot be regarded as my friends, and the remaining three are my friends, moreover you also know two of them.”
“Who are they?” Meng Jing Xiu seemed to be insistent on questioning, as if she had repressed those question to the back of her mind for a long time.
“They are Yue Ying and Ji Luo Fei, you should have already known about them, other than them there was a little nun by the name of An Yi, a lovely and cute girl.” Just as Ning Cheng was reminded of An Yi, his mind turned into a blank sheet of paper, he did not know what had become of An Yi now.
“Then who among those are not considered as your friend?”
Ning Cheng then immediately remembered Ning Ruo Lan and Ji Luo Fei, and his heart immediately started missing them, but he still casually replied, “They are my sister Ning Ruo Lan and my fiancée Ji Luo Fei, they are my family.”
If one must say who were his closest family, then Ning Cheng could easily say that they were Ning Ruo Lan and Ji Luo Fei. As long as he could get out of this place, then he could go see Ji Luo Fei, but as for Ruo Lan, there was a possibility that he may never be able to see her again.
Hearing Ning Cheng mention his younger sister and fiancée, the emotions between them seemed to have some fluctuations. Meng Jing Xiu was tactful and did not continue to ask more questions, and started thinking of her own affairs.
After a long silence, Ning Cheng suddenly gave out a surprised sound.
“What happened, Senior Apprentice Brother Ning?” Meng Jing Xiu quickly asked.
Ning Cheng was pleasantly surprised and said, “I understand, here not only one can comprehend the Axe Intent, this place can also be used to cultivate the Axe Intent, moreover it can also be helpful in cultivating one’s Spiritual Consciousness, unexpectedly this world actually has such a good place.”
Thinking of Meng Jing Xiu’s cultivation, Ning Cheng once again said, “My Spiritual Consciousness has been in constant use, but even though my Spiritual Consciousness is getting exhausted, but I am still able to continue extending my Spiritual Consciousness. Moreover, there is a special kind of aura here, after your Spiritual Consciousness is extended to a certain extent, the aura here will actively take the initiative to nourish one’s Spiritual Consciousness. In other words, it will allow you to continuously cultivate one’s Spiritual Consciousness, I’m sure that my own Spiritual Consciousness has already grown a lot.”
After such a long time, Ning Cheng felt his Spiritual Consciousness has definitely grown a lot, if felt that if he cultivated here for a long term, then wouldn’t his Spiritual Consciousness become so strong that it could even go against the heavens? Here this place really prevented Spiritual Consciousness to extend to a farther place, but initially he had stopped trying to extend his Spiritual Consciousness in this place, if he could extend his own Spiritual Consciousness to stretch farther, then wouldn’t it not mean that his Spiritual Consciousness had increased?
Meng Jing Xiu quickly put aside her messy ideas, and learning from Ning Cheng quickly extended out her own Spiritual Sense. Sure enough, she also felt that there was a gentle aura that was nourishing her Spiritual Sense.
“This kind of aura that nourishes the Spiritual Consciousness, also contains a hint of Killing Intent, it should be a cultivator who specialized in using Spiritual Consciousness to attack, who had ended up finding this place, and used it to cultivate his Spiritual Consciousness. Junior Apprentice Sister Jing Xiu, you cultivate your own Spiritual Sense, I will cultivate my Spiritual Consciousness. If my Spiritual Consciousness can finally extend to a farther distance, then it is possible that we can even find a place to exit from.” Ning Cheng spoke out his own viewpoint.
Meng Jing Xiu did not wait for the reminder from Ning Cheng and immediately extended her Spiritual Sense, and started to cultivate. Meng Jing Xiu was not a naive cultivator, of course, she knew of the powerful benefits of Spiritual Consciousness.
Time slowly passed by as Ning Cheng and Meng Jing Xiu slowly cultivated, Ning Cheng continued to avoid some of the Axe Trace formed from Killing Intent while also constantly trying to extend the scope of his Spiritual Consciousness.
After a long time, Ning Cheng’s Spiritual Consciousness suddenly touched upon an invisible barrier.
“Ka” A sound of breaking was transmitted from Ning Cheng’s Sea of Consciousness, Ning Cheng’s Spiritual Consciousness felt as if it suddenly broke through this barrier, and extended out to a whole new world.
A similar green bricked platform appeared in the middle of Ning Cheng’s Spiritual Consciousness, Ning Cheng immediately became pleased in his heart, and hurriedly spoke, “I found the nice place to stop for some rest, we’ll stay there for a while.”
Ning Cheng did not wait for Meng Jing Xiu to reply, and immediately took out a Flying Sword and immediately started flying on it towards the green brick platform that he had seen a moment ago.
A powerful suction force created from the Killing Intent present there almost pulled Ning Cheng along with the Flying Sword into the depths of the valley. Fortunately, Ning Cheng’s Spiritual Consciousness could not be compared to before, as it had advanced by more than one grade. Under the influence of his True Essence and the superimposition of his Spiritual Consciousness, the Flying Sword quickly got rid of this powerful suction force, and in just a twinkling of an eye arrived at that place.
Ning Cheng, at this moment, was standing on the newly discovered platform, and once more found out that his Spiritual Consciousness was prevented from extending far, this made Ning Cheng more and more affirmative, that this place was definitely to purify and cultivate one’s Spiritual Consciousness.
Over the past three days, Ning Cheng did not know how many times he had encountered such a brick platform, but he affirmed that once he left this place, his Spiritual Consciousness would once again double in strength.
His Spiritual Consciousness was already strong, then if it doubled once again, then just how powerful would it be?
Ning Cheng suddenly felt looking forward to clashing with that the gloomy Killing Intent in the chasm all around them, his Spiritual Consciousness was strong, but it did not mean that his real strength was also strong, what he needed at this moment most was real strength.
When Ning Cheng once again dropped atop a green square platform, that Axe Trace formed from the Killing Intent once again swept towards them. This kind of Axe Trace formed from the Killing Intent, Ning Cheng had already got accustomed to it, as in the past several days, he simply did not know how many times he had experienced this kind of Axe Trace formed from the Killing Intent, moreover although these swept towards him several times but he only received minor injuries.
But Ning Cheng soon found that there was something different, this time this particular Axe Trace formed from Killing Intent and the Axe Trace formed from the Killing Intent from earlier were completely different, this Axe Trace formed from the Killing Intent did not just brush past him like the previous times, but rather it seemed to have directly locked onto him. Ning Cheng had clearly avoided this Axe Trace formed from the Killing Intent, but that Killing Intent inside it seemed to have a will of its own as it actually circled back in an instant, and brushed past Ning Cheng’s waist, leaving behind a wound that was not light.
Ning Cheng’s True Essence was in constant circulation in his body, so when the wound suddenly broke open, the blood that was already rapidly circulating throughout his body instantly sputtered out. Ning Cheng did not know if he was actually hurt or not, as he stood there blankly on top of the brick platform, as if he was thinking of an extremely important affair.
