Eternal Cultivation of AlchemyChapter 1206 Reasons
Alex waited with bated breath as he felt the spiritual sense of the senior in front of him tear into his body.
To pull something out of someone else's space, one either had to have a very strong understanding of a specific type of space dao that related to space in a confined form or simply have strength way higher than the one that you were stealing from.
It seemed to him that the senior in front of him was not aware of the Dao, and was thus forced to use the brute force method of stealing from another Soul space.
'There is still some Space dao in there,' Alex thought. He could sense the space aura that came along with the senior's senses.
The man wasn't lying when he said that this was going to hurt. Alex could feel the ripping pain in his chest, but he didn't let it show on his face.
Fortunately, the pain wasn't at a level where he couldn't tolerate it at all. Although, he did feel it at a spiritual level, which was quite weird. It was most likely because the senior was using his spiritual sense to look into him.
Alex suddenly heard a thud and quickly looked in the direction of the sound to find a sword there. It was a dark, metallic sword with sparkling bits available sparingly all around it.
Before he could say anything, something else appeared there. A cauldron.
Alex recognized the cauldron as one of the ones that the mad immortal had given him so he could practice making pills with pill veins. He had stopped using those cauldrons after he had prepared Memory and had stored everything in his storage after that.
A small box popped out as well, one which included some type of ingredients. Then a pill, and then a formation plate.
One after another, items started popping out of his soul space.
Something else popped out that caught Alex's attention. It was a Saint rank Whip of crimson color that Alex hadn't seen in over 2 decades.
'My Whip,' he thought. He hadn't had much use for the whip anymore, but he still found it quite nostalgic to see something that he had thought he had lost forever.
Then, the white mask fell out. The Saint-ranked mask was not only something he had been missing for the past decade and a half, but it was also something that he had needed to improve his spiritual power. Please visit 𝒊𝓃𝗻𝘳𝘦𝐚𝐝 𝒄o𝓶
Unfortunately, without the mask, he had fallen a lot behind in his spiritual strength. Thankfully, now that he had it, he could continue again.
A few more pills, ingredients, and other items popped out as well after that, but the rate at which they were coming out had slowed down to a point where it simply felt like nothing was coming out at all.
One last thing popped out and Alex shuddered as the spiritual sense from the senior reeled out from within him.
"Sigh, it's so massive that I can't believe it took me so much time to bring everything out," he said as he took a deep breath. "I still can't believe how vast your soul space is."
Alex took some deep breaths to calm the headache he got from the spiritual pain. It took him a few seconds to bring it down to a level where he could ignore it completely.
"I'm sure there are still a few things I missed because I couldn't reach for them, but I got out everything I could," the man said.
Alex nodded. "I'm still missing a few things. Some swords, the World Tree seed, another—" he paused when his eyes fell on something.
"Hmm?" he pulled the item next to him. It was the final item that had come out of his soul space, which he seemed to have missed.
"Oh, I still have this," he thought to himself when he saw it.
"What's that?" Scarlet asked, looking at his hand.
"It's a medallion," Alex said. "It gives me authority over a secret realm in the Western Continent. I actually forgot this thing even existed, to be honest."
"It's something important then?" the snake asked.
"Uhh… not really," Alex said. "I should have grown past the point where something like this could be useful to me. Although…"
He remembered something that he had nearly forgotten. "Now that I think about it, I still have some business in that secret realm," he said. "Thank you, senior, for getting this all out for me."
"It's alright. It's barely any work at all," he said as he looked around. "You do have quite a few alchemy ingredients, I must say. Is the Alchemy God's Knowledge helping you well?"
Alex was taken aback a bit. "Senior, you know that I have the Alchemy God's Knowledge?" he asked.
"Of course," the man said. "I knew that the person with the Sun God's body had taken the Alchemy God's Knowledge. It was the only skill I was certain no one would be able to use. Yet you somehow managed to take it, so I was surprised."
"Oh… was I not supposed to get it?" Alex asked.
"No, no. I just never expected someone to fulfill the requirements given how rare it is," the man said. "A person had to be born with all 7 spiritual roots for them to even hope to learn this technique."
"I see," Alex said. "Are 7 spiritual roots that rare in all the realms?"
"I would say they are as rare as Celestial-grade body constitutions," the man said.
"Then… was the Alchemy god born with 7 spiritual roots, just like me?" Alex asked.
"I do not know if he did or not," the senior said. "The Alchemy god your knowledge comes from died in the Eternal War a couple hundred thousand years ago, so not much information about his early days remains, I'm afraid."
"I see," Alex said.
'Was he a different one from the Alchemy god Godslayer said he killed?' he couldn't help but wonder.
"Sigh, I remember a time when I looked forward to meeting you just because you managed to learn that skill. Looking back at it, however, that reason gets pushed down to like 3rd on the list of reasons why I wanted to meet you after everything else."
"Oh, what are the other 2 reasons?" Alex asked.
"Well, the 2nd reason is because of your Celestial grade body that you managed to evolve after eating a Nine Yang Divine Fruit," the man said.
"And the main reason being?" Alex asked.
The man looked at him and smiled slightly. "No need to hurry. You'll find out in due time."
Alex waited for him to speak some more, but the man simply stayed quiet. The sudden silence in the group felt a bit awkward, so Alex started collecting the rest of his stuff that had fallen around him.
He took everything and put it inside his storage ring. After he was done, he turned to the senior. "Do I have to return this ring to you, senior?" he asked.
"You can if you want to," the man said. "But I was planning on letting you keep it until you can use your soul space properly."
