Su Luo saw that the little divine dragon was also at wits’ end . Her brows knitted: “Just wait a minute, I keep feeling——”
Then, right at this moment, the little divine dragon’s expression suddenly changed .
The little divine dragon suddenly threw himself at Zi Yan .
Zi Yan was immediately overwhelmed somewhat by such favor .
This little guy had always been cold and indifferent towards her . At present, it was a rare thing for him to voluntarily enter into her lap .
Zi Yan’s mood immediately became very good: “Come, come over to Big Sister’s side…”
Before she finished speaking, the little divine dragon had brushed past her . His finger was pointing straight at the target – that stone Zi Yan was sitting on .
“Really doesn’t give one face ah… . ” Zi Yan poked at the little divine dragon’s head and also rubbed her own head .
However, compared to Zi Yan, Su Luo had a much better understanding of the little divine dragon’s temperament .
Able to make the little divine dragon’s pair of eyes shine brightly like that, he had definitely seen a treasure!
At this moment, the little divine dragon had just extended his two sharp claws . He was scratching at the stone beneath Zi Yan .
Immediately, stone fragments swirled in the air, filling the whole sky .
Zi Yan hurriedly jumped up, because if she hadn’t jumped up, the little divine dragon might have also scratched apart her butt .
Seeing the little divine dragon so excited, a bright light immediately flashed through Su Luo’s eyes . Could it be that the treasure was hidden inside these ordinary stones?
Su Luo carefully looked at that stone . All of a sudden, she let out an ‘oh’ sound of surprise . Her eyes suddenly lit up .
Oh! Just a moment ago, she really was almost fooled . These stones had an outward appearance that made them seem like ordinary stones . However, in fact, these stones had great origins!
“Zi Yan, quickly come and see!” Su Luo pulled Zi Yan up with one hand and pointed at that stone .
“What are you doing? What’s so good about this stone… I say, is it because your family’s little divine dragon has nothing better to do? To unexpectedly run over to shave a stone?” Zi Yan had an expression full of doubt .
She simply didn’t know that the little divine dragon had a special treasure hunting ability . Therefore, she was very puzzled by his behavior .
“Your luck truly isn’t bad, the moment you sat down, you sat on a treasure . ” Su Luo said in annoyance .
Zi Yan was really… Even the little divine dragon was helping her dig out the treasure . Unexpectedly, she still didn’t know… Could this be the legendary a fool’s luck?
“Treasure? Where?” Zi Yan had an expression full of disbelief .
Su Luo’s gaze was looking at that stone .
It seemed as if Zi Yan was choking . She pointed at that stone, “You’re saying this one?”
Su Luo nodded her head in a deadly earnest manner .
Zi Yan with a ‘pfft’ sound, laughed out loud: “Too funny, how could a treasure be inside this stone? I really don’t believe it . ”
Su Luo was all smiles as she responded: “Since you don’t believe it, then if a treasure really emerges from inside, then you must gift it to me . ”
Zi Yan slapped her chest, vouching for it: “Sure, if a treasure really emerges from inside, I won’t raise any objections and immediately——”
Zi Yan saw that curve hooking up in the corner of Su Luo’s mouth and those eyes still containing a smile as before . In a split second, she quivered!
Su Luo was as cunning as a little fox, maybe something would really come from inside . She must not be deceived by Su Luo, this cunning little fox!
Consequently, with the words at the tip of her tongue, Zi Yan forcibly changed it: “If a treasure really emerges from inside, I, without demur, will keep it for myself!”
Su Luo let out a ‘pfft’ sound of laugher: “You miser, at least you turned around quickly . Otherwise, you certainly wouldn’t have a share in this treasure . Do you know what this stone is?”
“What?” Wasn’t it just a shining white stone? Not much different from those stones in the surrounding mountains . It was basically, exactly the same .
“We have been deceived by the external appearance of this stone . I tell you, in fact, this stone’s external appearance only looks like a stone . ”

“In fact, this is actually a crystal stone’s source stone . “ Su Luo shook her head slowly, her expression carrying a trace of astonishment, “If it weren’t for the zealousness the little divine dragon displayed, before this, I really hadn’t taken notice of it . “
“A crystal stone’s source stone?” Zi Yan, having heard what was said, was startled . Afterwards, she carefully sized up that stone, “I’ve seen a crystal stone’s source stone before, but this doesn’t look like it . ”
“So that’s to say, this is an even higher grade, sealed source stone . ” There was a trace of graveness in Su Luo’s expression, “Reportedly, what’s sealed inside isn’t a crystal stone, but something else . ”
“Eh?” Zi Yan found it hard to believe . She hadn’t even heard of something like it before .
“Therefore, let’s take a look, in the end, what would appear from inside of it . ” Su Luo stooped to crouch down in front of that sealed stone that was over fifty kilograms in weight .
Su Luo raised her head and was all smiles as she looked at Zi Yan, waving her palm: “This hand of mine is the famous Little Black Hand, are you certain you want me to break it open? At that time, when a hideous messy thing comes out, you better not blame me . ”
“Little Black Hand (1)? Isn’t this hand of yours the famous Little Red Hand (2)?” Zi Yan firmly did not believe it .
“Who did you hear that from . ”
To ask unintentionally versus to ask with intent . A trace of unnaturalness flashed across Zi Yan’s complexion . She compelled herself to act normal: “If your luck was bad, how could you have paid your respects under Grandmaster Rong Yun’s door?”
Hearing that, Su Luo thought for a bit and also felt that this was right .
That matter of her becoming a formal disciple, was all carried out in public . The twists and turns of the road with many crooks and bends . In the end, she really did manage to pay her respects to him .
This matter had been spread extremely wide . It wasn’t difficult for Zi Yan to also know it .
“Then alright, I open it, then I’ll open it . ” An excited radiance flashed across Su Luo’s eyes .
She had never opened a sealed source stone before .
Su Luo took out that “Yan Hua” dagger and took the sealed source stone’s measure in front of it .
Zi Yan nervously crouched on the other side and unblinkingly watched the sealed stone, afraid to miss a little bit of news .
After Su Luo finished taking its measure to find a position, holding her breath with rapt attention, she raised her hand and brought the blade down .
The dagger directly cut down .
A piece of shining white stone fell to the floor .
“Nothing . ” Zi Yan said in disappointment .
Su Luo’s expression was still as calm as water . She raised the dagger and sliced down once again .
“There’s still nothing . ” Zi Yan spread out both hands .
Su Luo’s expression carried an even more bit of graveness .
Because in the wake of having sliced off two pieces of waste material, it was now already getting closer and closer to the core .
Starting from now, every cut had to be done gently and cautiously . There could not be a little bit of a mistake .
The dagger then peeled with three consecutive cuts .
In a blink of an eye, only one third of the original size of that huge, sealed source stone remained .
Just at this time, a strong scent came out from inside the source stone .
“As expected, there is something!” Zi Yan’s eyes suddenly lit up . She urged Su Luo, “Quickly, quickly, quickly . ”
“I can’t hurry it up anymore . ” At this moment, Su Luo’s forehead was already covered in a layer of fine beaded sweat . Her pair of eyes was as bright as stars, as she concentrated all her attention on that rock .
The final cut…
Su Luo took a deep breath, then she opened her eyes again . Her eyes were a sheet of pure cold and quiet .
Just at this moment, the dagger in Su Luo’s hands cut horizontally across .
“Slide——” A sound rang .
The two thumbs thick of source stone was evenly sliced across .
The cut was tidy .
Like slicing tofu .
A happy expression flashed through Zi Yan’s eyes . Not waiting for Su Luo to speak, she grabbed and tore open the stone that was cut: “I really want to see, just what exactly is concealed inside this sealed source stone . ”
The source stone was torn open and a cavity appeared in it .
And inside the cavity, a blue, fat and plump living creature was laying there .
One could only see its pair of eyes were tightly closed, and its two chubby little hands, clenched into fists, were placed on its own chest .
1) Little Black Hand… very bad luck, 2) Little Red Hand… very lucky .
