“Moshuang is fine. Hurry up and go collect your qualification jade card so you can enter the Small Central Planet,” said Xian Ze hurriedly.
Di Jiu was both Huan Mingzi’s and Xian Ze’s chosen one. The Small Central Planet was the best place for improving one’s strength. As long as Di Jiu didn’t fall after entering, he would definitely advance by leaps and bounds.
Huan Mingzi also signaled at Di Jiu to hurry up and collect the jade card.
Thus, Di Jiu ended up on the circular platform. He was now quite well-known in the Small Central World, so a number of cultivators came over to greet him the moment he walked up to the stage.
Only the best Itinerant Cultivators could go there to get a jade card.
“Di Jiu—132 points…” The cultivator in charge of giving out the qualification jade cards looked up at Di Jiu after seeing his score and asked, “How many qualification jade cards do you need?”
Di Jiu bowed and replied, “I need 13.”
His score from the Five Continent Dao Pagoda could either be used in exchange for qualification jade cards or to strike a deal with the sects. Now that the Small Central Planet was about to open, it was obviously better to exchange his score for qualification jade cards.
When they saw Di Jiu collect 13 qualification jade cards for entering the Small Central Planet, many cultivators turned red with envy. Di Jiu alone could get 13 cards, when they couldn’t get any. It was a pity that they couldn’t snatch any. Even the True Form cultivators couldn’t.
“Not bad, not bad…” repeated Huan Mingzi a few times when he saw Di Jiu get 13 jade cards. Then, he rubbed his palms together. “Di Jiu, give the excess jade cards to me. I’ll help you exchange them for some cultivating resources.”
Di Jiu handed three jade cards to Huan Mingzi and said, “Sir, I only have three extra jade cards.”
“Three it is, then. I’ll have to leave for a while.” Huan Mingzi took the jade cards and left quickly. The jade cards for entering the Small Central Planet were priceless treasures.
“Brother Di Jiu, I didn’t expect that you would actually reach the 90th level of the Five Continent Dao Pagoda. Congratulations!” Huan Mingzi had just left when Fu Che, along with Liang Guqing and Bei Shitao, came over to congratulate Di Jiu.
Di Jiu had already noticed that Fu Che and the rest had come to the Small World Planet Square too. However, he hadn’t tried to find them because he was planning on killing the sect masters of the five large sects. Fu Che and the others were now inner sect disciples of the Mirage Sword Sect. Thus, he wouldn’t know what to say to them even if he found them.
Although it was obvious that he had offended the Genesis Sect, Fu Che still treated him like a friend. Di Jiu naturally reciprocated this friendship.
“Brother Fu, Junior Sister Liang, Brother Bei, it’s been a long time since we last met. Congratulations on your cultivation improvement.” Di Jiu walked over and greeted them very warmly.
He was no match for these geniuses. Fu Che and the other two could attain the fifth-stage Essence Soul Realm or even the sixth-stage Essence Soul Realm in a mere few years. This was already considered remarkable. Almost everyone had advanced by two to three stages. The disciples of the large sects obviously had an important heritage.
Liang Guqing, who seemed elated, said, “I told you that Big Brother Di would not ignore us.”
In their eyes, Di Jiu was now on an entirely different level from them. Although they were currently inner sect disciples of the Mirage Sword Sect, their position in the Mirage Sword Sect was awkward—they were weaker than even the outer sect disciples when it came to using the sect’s resources.
“You are an earnest man, Brother Di. I did not make a mistake in befriending you. The three of us came here only to watch. We will leave this place once the Small Central Planet opens. I don’t know if we will meet again in the future, so we came over to say hi,” Fu Che said with a sigh.
Di Jiu’s cultivation level used to be about the same as theirs. Now, Di Jiu was clearly very far ahead of them.
Di Jiu, who was puzzled, asked, “Do you need to return to your sect?”
Fu Che shook his head and said in a low voice, “Large sects are like that. There is no cultivation assurance, especially for people like us who have only joined the sect halfway. This time, I plan on bringing along Guqing and Shitao to search other places and see if we can find any opportunities. We do not plan to return to the sect.”
Di Jiu smiled and said, “No need to go anywhere else. We will go to the Small Central Planet together later.”
Di Jiu took out three qualification jade cards and gave them to Fu Che and the others. He had already set aside these qualification jade cards for them. If they hadn’t turned up in time, he would have just sold them to someone else.
“Ah…” Fu Che, who hadn’t expected that Di Jiu would give him something so valuable, rejected the offer immediately. “This is too much, I can’t accept it. We didn’t come here to ask for jade cards to enter the Small Central Planet.”
Fu Che was telling the truth. This jade card was too valuable. He, Di Jiu and the others had merely teamed up once.
Di Jiu patted Fu Che. “No matter how valuable a jade card is, it’s not as valuable as friendship. Take them, all three of you. If we hadn’t met, I would still have burned them to ashes. I have another jade card here. Please do me a favor and help me give this to Gai Shitian from the Azure Sect.”
Gai Shitian, who was the first friend that Di Jiu had made after coming to the Small Central Planet, had also come to the Small Central Planet Square. Di Jiu knew very well why Gai Shitian hadn’t come over to say hello—he belonged to the Azure Sect. Now that Di Jiu had offended the Genesis Sect, Gai Shitian definitely wouldn’t dare come over to greet him.
When Fu Che saw that Di Jiu had a pile of jade cards in his hands, he didn’t reject his offer again. He knew that this was an excellent chance for the three of them. If they didn’t enter the Small Central Planet, they might get stuck in the Essence Soul Realm for the rest of their lives or at best attain the Void Spirit Realm. Once they entered the Small Central Planet, they would stand a great chance of advancing to another tier.
As soon as Fu Che and the other two put away the jade cards, Di Jiu handed the rest of the jade cards to Geng Ji and the others. Then, he asked, “What happened to Moshuang?”
Wei Shanshan had been worried about Jing Moshuang. Actually, only she and Jing Moshuang had been disciples of the Galaxy Sect. Jing Moshuang had planned on rebuilding the Galaxy Sect and coming to the Small Central World to set up a sect. Thus, when Di Jiu asked about Jing Moshuang, she quickly told him that Han Qingyi had taken her away.
Di Jiu knew this woman. Although she was very powerful, the people supporting her were even more powerful. Why had Han Qingyi chosen Jing Moshuang as her cultivation companion? Jing Moshuang’s qualifications weren’t that good.
However, Di Jiu had experienced many things before. When he tweaked his way of thinking, he instantly understood Han Qingyi’s motive. Jing Moshuang had most likely been dragged into this because of him—this was about the Plane Split Talisman.
Han Qingyi, who had been very enthusiastic about the Plane Split Talisman, had wanted the ones he had. However, he had already used up both Plane Split Talismans.
“Don’t worry, Junior Sister Shanshan. Once I get out of the Small Central Planet, I will join the True Province Genius Tournament and bring back Moshuang by hook or by crook. I totally agree that the Galaxy Sect should be rebuilt on the Small Central World. I will give you my assistance.” Di Jiu gave Wei Shanshan a definite answer.
Back on the Polar Night Continent, Di Jiu had initially not been interested in rebuilding the Galaxy Sect. Firstly, he knew that the Galaxy Sect wouldn’t thrive on the Polar Night Continent. Secondly, he didn’t have that much time. However, if Jing Moshuang was willing to rebuild the Galaxy Sect, he would naturally help out.
“You wish to enter the True Province Genius Tournament?” asked Xian Ze, who had been wanting to speak to Di Jiu in private. Upon hearing that Di Jiu would join the True Province Genius Tournament, he got so agitated that his hands started trembling a little. He had gone there to find Di Jiu precisely because he wanted to ask him to take part in the True Province Genius Tournament.
“Yes. I indeed want to join the True Province Genius Tournament,” replied Di Jiu respectfully.
Xian Ze rubbed his hands. He got more and more excited as he said, “I came to find you precisely for this…”
Di Jiu raised his hands and set up a restriction. “Don’t tell me that you want to go to the Immortal World too?”
“Yes, yes…” said Xian Ze immediately. “I know that this is too much to ask, but I have to go to the Immortal World. You know how chaotic the Night Star Continent is now. I’m most grateful that you remerged the Polar Night Continent and the Half-Screen Continent, which had been split from the Night Star Continent. However, this reunion wasn’t supported by the Law, so it is like water without a source or a tree without roots.”
“In the past, the Night Star Continent used to be a famous existence among the five star continents. Now, it can’t even produce a Pioneer Sea Realm cultivator, which is tragic. If this goes on, the Night Star Continent will disappear completely in the vast universe. No cultivators on the Night Star Continent can enter the Immortal World anymore. I’m hoping to be the person to convey this message and ask experts to come and repair the Night Star Continent.”
By the time Di Jiu finished listening to Xian Ze, he was overcome with emotion. He deeply respected Xian Ze. Xian Ze could have left the Polar Night Continent long ago, yet he had stayed to maintain the order.
His master, Qian Fenghua, had stayed back on the Night Star Continent to repair it because he had cracked it by accident. However, things were different for Xian Ze. Xian Ze had wholeheartedly wanted to repair the Night Star Continent because he didn’t want it to disappear into nothingness.
“Sir, if I can get a good ranking in the True Province Genius Tournament and there are two positions, I will definitely leave one open for you.” Di Jiu bowed respectfully. He had also promised to keep a position for Huan Mingzi.
“Good, good, good…” repeated Xian Ze continuously, feeling very agitated.
Boom! A loud sound startled everybody on the square. Suddenly, a colorful pathway shot down from the Small Central Planet like a beam of light. Actually, it was a beam of light.
“The Small World Planet is open!” As excited voices rang out, the cultivators who could enter the Small World Planet realized that their opportunity had come.
