Chapter 429

The River-Mountain Qian-Kun Painting flew out of the Dragon God Shrine and headed toward the East Ocean Dragon Palace .

Little White turned into its puppy form, and it bit Hao Ren's heel and made a series of excited squeaky noises . Even though it was excited, it still made sounds to complain to Hao Ren about not including it in such a tense battle .

It hadn't developed its full intelligence yet, but it was much Congminger than other pets . It knew that Qin Shaoyang was the bad guy and was happy for Hao Ren when he defeated Qin Shaoyang .

Premier Xia also threw Hao Ren an admiring look . But since he stood beside Zhao Kuo who just lost to Hao Ren, he couldn't really praise Hao Ren at the moment .

Although it was the first time they attended the Dragon God Shrine's general exam, Hao Ren had won the East Ocean Dragon Palace a lot of pride . Zhao Hongyu was so excited that her face was flushed .

However, she wasn't overwhelmed by the victory . She thought for a second and asked Hao Ren, "When did you reach peak Qian-level, Ren? The black sword you used is the old dragon king's weapon which he carries with him at all times . How come he offered it to you?"

Zhao Hongyu was wise, but she never thought that the old dragon king already passed away .

Zhao Kuo's face was gloomy as he kept quiet .

"Auntie, I'll explain it to you in detail when we get back to the East Ocean Dragon Palace," Hao Ren didn't really know how to explain this to her . However, he knew that Zhao Guang and the others would find out about Zhao Haoran sooner or later .

He fought a hard battle against Zhao Kuo to prove himself, and Zhao Kuo didn't want to lose to the younger generation either . Therefore, the battle got more and more intense . As a result, Hao Ren's meridians were damaged, causing the spiritual core which stored Zhao Haoran's 1,000-year cultivation strength to leak .

Hao Ren depended on his nature essence to keep the spiritual core under control . However, since he consumed all his nature essence and tried to defeat Zhao Kuo, Zhao Haoran's 1,000-year cultivation strength was accidentally released .

At this moment, the 1,000-year cultivation strength was dashing around in Hao Ren's body and made him feel like death was better than living .

The fact that he could still reply calmly was all because of his willpower .

"Ok . . . " Zhao Hongyu thought that Hao Ren must be tired after the back-to-back battles, so she didn't keep asking even though she had many more questions .

Hao Ren crossed his legs and sat down . He regulated his breath and frowned . Zhao Haoran's strength was indeed overly powerful, and he wasn't able to control it as a mid-tier Gen-level cultivator .

On the other hand, if Hao Ren were on Zhen-level, only touching this strength would have killed him!

"Humph!" Zhao Kuo snorted . His face was pale, but he wasn't actually injured that bad .

In this battle, Hao Ren showed his strength and won some prestige .

In fact, both Hao Ren and Zhao Kuo wanted to defeat each other, and Zhao Yanzi was the key here .

Zhao Kuo wanted to prove that Hao Ren was too weak, and Hao Ren tried to show that he wasn't weak at all . Deep in their hearts, what they were fighting over was Zhao Yanzi!

"Gongzi . . . " Lu Linlin and Lu Lili sat on Hao Ren's sides . They put their hands on Hao Ren's shoulders to help him recover .

With their help as Qian-level cultivators, Zhao Haoran's 1,000-year cultivation strength slowly got under Hao Ren's control .

Zhao Yanzi looked at Hao Ren and then at Zhao Kuo . She thought for a bit and picked Little White up before sitting down in a corner of the River-Mountain Qian-Kun Painting .

Xie Yujia breathed out deeply while standing on the edge of the River-Mountain Qian-Kun Painting . She finally felt relieved as she looked at the clouds floating under her feet .

Each of Hao Ren's battle was alarmingly dangerous, and Xie Yujia paid attention to each of Hao Ren's movements from the side of the arena . She was undoubtedly nervous for him .

Xie Yujia was exhausted now that Hao Ren had won, and she felt like she was the one battling the entire time .

Zhen Congming sat on the River-Mountain Qian-Kun Painting with his back facing everyone else . He took out a piece of paper and a pencil from his storage space and started doodling .

He had always wanted to take a look at the Dragon God Shrine, but he never got the chance to .

When Hao Ren attended the Dragon God Shrine's general exam, Zhen Congming tagged along with Zhao Guang and the others . He had no interest in the battles of the 'low-leveled' cultivators except for when Hao Ren and Zhao Kuo battled . In the meantime, he had been scanning around the Dragon God Shrine the entire time .

The Dragon God Shrine could be considered as the supreme headquarters of the Dragon Tribe, and the amount of resources they possessed were even greater than the four ocean dragon palaces .

Zhen Congming stayed in the East Ocean Dragon Palace with Qiu Niu for the time being . As shameless as he was, he didn't want to take advantage of the East Ocean Dragon Palace . When he exploited the West Ocean Dragon Palace last time, he obtained a lot of stuff, but nothing was rare . He used the most precious items and made a flight dharma treasure with them .

However, the Dragon God Shrine was different . Since Zhen Congming was not a dragon cultivator in the first place, and he was not familiar with the Dragon God Shrine either, the famous Dragon God Shrine was like a mountain of treasures to him .

Zhen Congming's white paper slowly showed some complex lines . He added tons of symbols and comments, and it looked even more complicated than a mathematical reasoning problem and stricter than an architectural blueprint .

Even the most famous scientist in the world wouldn't be able to understand his drawing . However, for Zhen Congming, the challenging courses at universities, such as Linear Algebra and Advanced Mathematics, were only of the kindergarten level!

Zhen Congming was a master who could overturn the most complicated math theory and physics law in the world!

If he were to learn to program, he would be the best hacker in the world!

He calculated and restored over 600 array formations outside the Dragon God Shrine within an hour! That was ridiculous . . . Zhen Congming was a little arrogant, but his intelligence was the best of the best .

The River-Mountain Qian-Kun Painting flew over the clouds as everybody kept quiet . They were either meditating or buried in their own thoughts .

"We are here," Zhao Hongyu said abruptly .

Hao Ren opened his eyes and found himself above the ocean already . The port of the East Ocean City was only a couple of kilometers away .

Under Lu Linlin and Lu Lili's help, the exploding nature essence in his body finally returned to the spiritual core in the Qihai Acupoint . Then, he sealed it up with force .

"Congratulations! Gongzi!" The twins stood up beside Hao Ren and said in a pleasant voice .

Although they were both at Qian-level, Zhao Haoran's 1,000-year cultivation strength was of peak Qian-level . Now that they had completed sealing that strength, they both were sweaty and tired . Their soft silky dresses were both half soaked .

Hao Ren clenched his fists and stood up . The dragon core near his dantian felt very refreshing, and he now had 178 openings .

Zhao Haoran's 1,000-year cultivation strength dashed through Hao Ren's body, and he put the spiritual core in its place slowly afterward . In fact, it was like rinsing Hao Ren's body with the nature essence of peak Qian-level, and the benefits were tremendous .

In a sense, three Qian-level cultivators battled in Hao Ren's body, and he certainly sweated more than Lu Linlin and Lu Lili .

But instead of Lu Linlin and Lu Lili's crystal-clear sweat, his sweat was black and smelly!

The twins looked at Hao Ren from the sides, not showing disgust at his stinky sweat at all .

Hao Ren looked down at the layer of dirty stuff on top of his skin, knowing that his physical condition had significantly improved again!

That was what Lu Linlin and Lu Lili congratulated him on!

"Eww, so stinky!" Zhao Yanzi sniffed the smell from Hao Ren in her sleep, and she couldn't help but complain as she held Little White in her arms .

"Hehe, please take a shower, Gongzi!" Lu Linlin pushed Hao Ren off the River-Mountain Qian-Kun Painting with her beautiful hands .

Hao Ren fell from over a hundred meters into the rough ocean!

Hao Ren would've cried out in a panic if it were before, but he wasn't worried at all now!


Hao Ren fell into the ocean, and the waves he splashed up were immediately swallowed by other waves . His body was incredibly strong after being tempered by the heavenly lightning .

Hao Ren moved his legs and swam a few meters under the water . He knew how to swim because he lived by the beach, and he was way more flexible and powerful than before . With a little kick, Hao Ren moved quickly under the water like a tuna fish .

Water rinsed off the dirt on Hao Ren's skin, and it made it much easier for his pores to breath .

Then, Hao Ren took one of the two robes that were on his front and back and wore it before dashing out of the water on his sword energies


Hao Ren was refreshed . He hopped directly onto the River-Mountain Qian-Kun Painting that was a few hundred meters above the ocean, and his face was no longer dirty . Instead, his clean face looked handsome under his wet hair .

The subtle salty scent of the ocean replaced the stinky smell .

"Gongzi got more handsome!" Lu Linlin took the opportunity to flatter Hao Ren . Lu Lili covered her mouth as she laughed while looking at Hao Ren in admiration .

Xie Yujia lightly smiled at Hao Ren; she didn't say anything .

"Handsome, handsome, handsome! What's the point of being handsome? Handsome can't feed him!" Zhao Yanzi shouted, but she couldn't help but glimpse at Hao Ren .

"Let's get back to the East Ocean Dragon Palace as soon as possible, Auntie . We need to talk about some important issues," Hao Ren said to Zhao Hongyu .

He circulated the fire-elemental nature essence according to the Light Splitting Sword Shadow Scroll, and it dried his soaked robe immediately .

"Ok!" Zhao Hongyu nodded . As she made a hand gesture, the River-Mountain Qian-Kun Painting sped up and created an energy sphere .

Splash! They dived into the ocean .
