    "It was also because of the treasures bestowed by the sect," Yi Xiao quipped. "That's how we managed to succeed in the kill."

    "I had only restrained Water God." Qin Yun said humbly. Matters regarding sword intent had to be kept secret. The fewer that knew about it, the better.

    The beautiful middle-aged woman, Daoist Red Jade shook her head. "There's no need to be humble. To kill Water God before the Connate realm was done risking your lives! A slight mishap and you would have lost your lives. The two of you are young and have limitless potential, yet you had done such things. You have won my respect."

    "I'm also very impressed. After all, the both of you have saved millions of people in Grand Dominance County. The merits you accrued are immense." Palatial Lord Essence Charm said with a smile. "As for that water ape, its strength is rather ordinary on the shore but it possessed an ancient water ape bloodline. The moment it enters the water, its strength will not only increase severalfold, but its control of water also leaves us cultivators in the dust. Just a Connate False Core realm water ape has caused such a crisis. It's no wonder that the terrifying water ape of ancient times had wreaked havoc in the world."

    "Both of you, have a seat. Don't keep standing." Palatial Lord Essence Charm said with a smile.

    Qin Yun and Yi Xiao obediently took their seats.

    In front of Palatial Lord Essence Charm, they remained extremely humble.

    Even the Misty Rain Sword Intent that Qin Yun was most pleased about was nothing to a Connate Golden Core cultivator. Every Connate Golden Core cultivator had to grasp the charms of the Heavenly Dao or they would not have achieved their Golden Core! There were even many of them who had insights into the Heavenly Dao that were more profound than Qin Yun's. They had been cultivating for long periods of time and had cultivated the top Dharma spells with powerful Dharma treasures in hand. That was all sufficient to repress the light providence shone on a person or party.

    Only with a Connate Golden Core expert, capable of holding down the fort, could a sect be considered a top cultivation sect.

    Such a figure could kill a county governor and receive only a slight admonishment from the imperial government and the Inspector Heavenly Alliance. Unless the imperial government was provoked, it would not easily lose decorum with a Connate Golden Core expert!

    "That water ape had a Dual Modal Waterheart Pearl," said Daoist Red Jade with a smile. "With it, a Dual Modal Waterheart Array could be set up. Complemented by the water ape's talent in the water element, it allowed the water ape to sense everything in a five-kilometer radius with the array. If any living creature were to cross the boundary, they were detected. It's even possible to determine the creature's strength. And this Dual Modal Waterheart Array uses water vapor to permeate the surroundings. When cultivators like us come flying from a high altitude to kill him, he would sense us ahead of time. Immediately, he would escape into the Lanyang River."

    "This Dual Modal Waterheart Pearl is extremely useful for a junior of mine. My young friends, is it possible for you to separate from it?" Palatial Lord Essence Charm said with a smile, "Of course, I will not take any advantage of you. If there's anything you would like to exchange for it, feel free to let me know."

    Qin Yun and Yi Xiao exchanged looks.

    The array set up by the Dual Modal Waterheart Pearl could only be so acutely sensed by someone with a heaven-defying bloodline like the water ape. The treasure itself was an eighth-grade Dharma treasure, something that Qin Yun had not much use for.

    "Senior Essence Charm, this is the Dual Modal Waterheart Pearl." Qin Yun removed the Cosmic Bag from his waist and took out a dark blue bead from inside.

    After Water God's death, the treasures in the Cosmic Bag had been carefully identified by Qin Yun and Yi Xiao. They had managed to do so for about ninety percent of the items but there a few items whose value could not be determined. After all, Water God had a huge influence. His stash was in no way inferior to someone at the Connate True Core realm. The sixth-grade Dharma treasure, the Blackwater Oxhorn Trident, was in Yi Xiao's hands, while the rest were with Qin Yun.

    Qin Yun had carried the treasures along with him. He did not dare leave them at home.

    "There are some materials I need for the cultivation of my Intrinsic Flying Sword." Qin Yun immediately handed the Dual Modal Waterheart Pearl over. "It will be great if there's any Frost Soul Spiritual Liquid or Smokelike Water."

    Palatial Lord Essence Charm laughed the moment he heard that. With a beckon of his hand, the Dual Modal Waterheart Pearl appeared in his hand. After examining it, he said with a smile, "That's quite a coincidence. I happen to have some Smokelike Water with me. I'll give it to you." As he said that, a transparent green bottle appeared in his hand. There were droplets of water flowing in the bottle like they were a mist that was stirring and billowing.

    Qin Yun's eyes lit up.

    For his Intrinsic Flying Sword to reach the seventh-grade, there wasn't a high requirement for metal-elemental items. All it needed was large quantities of them! However, the demands of water-elemental items were much higher and extremely rare. In fact, that was only for the seventh-grade.

    Dharma treasures had a total of nine grades.

    Eighth and ninth-grades were most common. The higher the grade, the harder it was to raise it. Despite all the accumulation he had, Water God's Blackwater Oxhorn Trident was only a sixth-grade Dharma treasure! Daoist Red Jade had cultivated for more than a century; yet, her Crimson Fire Gourd was only a fifth-grade Dharma treasure.

    The green bottle was thrown at Qin Yun to which he caught. After taking a look, he immediately said, "There's too much Smokelike Water."

    "It has already been given." Palatial Lord Essence Charm said with a chuckle.

    "Just accept it. A few of Old Man Essence Charm's leg hair is thicker than your waist." Daoist Red Jade said with a laugh.

    Palatial Lord Essence Charm immediately glared at her.

    Only then did Daoist Red Jade cover her mouth as she laughed.

    "By risking your lives, it was for countless citizens." Palatial Lord Essence Charm added. "Leave it at that. In the future, don't risk your lives in such a manner. Both of you are very young with bright futures ahead of you. It's best you enter the Connate realm as early as possible!"

    "Yes." Qin Yun and Yi Xiao listened to his advice attentively.

    "Alright, I have something on tonight. I'll be out. Red Jade, inform me if there's anything." Palatial Lord Essence Charm stood up.

    Daoist Red Jade stood up as well and nodded. "Don't go too far out. You are needed in Grand Dominance."

    "Don't worry. I'll be in Grand Dominance."

    As he smiled, Palatial Lord Essence Charm walked out. Once he was out in the yard, he transformed into a lightning bolt and instantly disappeared into the sky.

    "He has cultivated his Lightning Dharma to the stage of being able to transform into lightning. How fascinating." Yi Xiao could not help but mutter when she saw that. She too cultivated in Lightning Dharma.

    "Years ago, Scenic Mountain Sect was ranked equal to your Divine Firmament Lightning Dharma. It was also an orthodox sect of talisman amulets. Its Dharma Lightning isn't much different from your Divine Firmament Chapter's. Even a rotten ship has three pounds of nails. The Scenic Mountain Sect still enjoys quite a good foundation." Daoist Red Jade said, "I'm tired too, so I'll take my leave. You can come to County Governor Manor to look for me if there's anything during this period." With that said, she headed out too.


    The county governor, Qin Yun, and Yi Xiao were walking alongside each other in County Governor Manor.

    "Qin Yun, Yi Xiao." The county governor said with a laugh. "Both of you are really my lucky stars. You helped me retrieve the spirit fruit and helped me kill Water God. Although I did not do a thing, Water God, who had wrecked havoc in Grand Dominance County for two centuries, was killed under my watch. This is very good for me politically. In the coming months, I will likely be promoted. When the time comes, I'll be leaving Grand Dominance as well."

    Yi Xiao immediately said, "Uncle Wen, congratulations on your promotion."

    "Lord County Governor, congratulations on your promotion." Qin Yun said with a smile as well.

    "Haha..." The county governor laughed. "Speaking of which, I'm more envious of cultivators like you. One person is able to match an entire army. Your longevities are the envy of us mortals. For example, Senior Essence Charm had lived for more than three centuries.

    Yi Xiao said with a smile, "There are countless mortals in Grand Dominance County that envies you, Uncle Wen."

    "Indeed. There is always a limit to one's desires. A man should be contented." The county governor chuckled. "Yi Xiao, there's nothing much for me to talk about you. Qin Yun, with your present status... the manor your father built might seem rather small. I had just prepared a manor for you. Tomorrow morning, Wen Chong will bring you there! Consider it a tiny gift before I leave."

    Qin Yun did not reject it. Instead, he immediately said, "Thank you, I'll be accepting it."

    Qin Yun was rather sentimental when it came to the old Qin Manor. After all, he had grown up there in his youth. However, it was indeed a little cramp at the moment! There was insufficient space for him to practice his flying sword arts. In the future, he would face stronger enemies as he grew stronger. He would need to set up array formations to protect the family but space would be a concern. Even if the county governor had not arranged for it, he would have purchased one himself. After all, his Cosmic Bag had more than a million taels of silver.

    "Haha." The county governor looked at Qin Yun and then Yi Xiao. He patted Qin Yun on the shoulder before leaving.

    He felt that Qin Yun and Yi Xiao had become closer after they dealt with Water God.

    However, he had reminded Qin Yun once, so there was no need for him to repeat his exhortations.
