The soul burial tree was still there.
In other words, the spirit ghost was still inside.
Lu Li was delighted, but he did not rush over to cut down the soul burial tree and capture the spirit ghost inside.
It was too obvious, and it would attract suspicion.
“Oh right! The Heavenly Blood-Devouring Technique can devour everything. I wonder if it can devour the pure ghostly qi inside the soul burial tree and raise my realm?”
Lu Li suddenly thought of something as he stopped and muttered to himself.
After saying that, he took a step forward and floated up the nearest hill like a ghost. He landed in front of a soul burial tree.
Then, he threw a punch.
A huge force exploded.
The soul burial tree was smashed into pieces on the spot and collapsed with a loud bang.
At the moment when the tree collapsed, a ball of cold, white air suddenly burst out from the trunk and moved in all directions.
That was the pure ghostly qi that the soul burial tree had absorbed over the years.
Lu Li came over and took a deep breath.
All the pure ghostly qi was swallowed by him and then devoured by the Heavenly Blood-Devouring Technique.
“It only has this little pure ghostly qi in it? Could it be that the smaller the soul burial tree is, the more pure ghostly qi it has accumulated?”
Lu Li was not satisfied and turned his head to look around.
In the next moment, he set his eyes on the soul burial tree where the spirit ghost was.
Then, Lu Li took a step forward and walked down the hill. He sped toward the small hill where the spirit ghost was and reached the top in just a few steps.
Standing in front of the seven-foot-tall soul burial tree, he did not hesitate at all. He grabbed the trunk with his huge hands as he forcefully torn it apart.
A clear sound rang out.
The soul burial tree was torn apart.
Then, Lu Li casually threw the upper half of the tree and leaned his head over, wanting to absorb the pure ghostly qi that was spewing out from the trunk.
Suddenly, he seemed to have discovered something and exclaimed in surprise.
He saw that there was no pure ghostly qi spewing out from the trunk. Instead, a ball of black smoke actually floated out from the trunk.
That ball had the size of a fist. It was formed from pure ghostly qi. It was slowly rotating too.
While the ghostly qi was lingering, there were still traces of golden light flashing.
On a closer look, there seemed to be a fair and chubby baby’s soul curled up inside the ball of black smoke.
This was a spirit ghost!
There really was a spirit ghost!
Lu Li was overjoyed. Without saying anything, he took out the Ghost-Raising Tower and circulated his magic power, crazily pouring it into the Ghost-Raising Tower.
The black Ghost-Raising Tower floated up and released rays of golden light. They wrapped around the spirit ghost and were about to put it into the tower.
At this moment, the spirit ghost seemed to be awakened! It opened its eyes!
Its eyes were as red as blood!
Suddenly, an invisible sound wave was released from the smoke and shook away the golden light of the Ghost-Raising Tower.
This was the innate ability of the spirit ghost!
Then, the smoke wrapped around the baby’s soul and flew into the sky.
It wanted to escape!
“Running away from me? Stay here!”
Lu Li was prepared. He opened his mouth wide and let out a loud roar.
His roar was very powerful, like thunder exploding, shaking the air.
The sound wave visible to the naked eye was like ripples spreading rapidly, hitting the black smoke in the sky.
Immediately, the black smoke trembled violently and dissipated.
It became extremely thin.
The baby’s soul inside seemed to be intimidated by the loud roar and did not dare to escape.
Immediately, Lu Li controlled the Ghost-Raising Tower. It flew into the sky, emitting a golden light that formed a large net that covered the spirit ghost.
A golden light flashed. The spirit ghost had already disappeared as it was pulled into the Ghost-Raising Tower.
“Hahaha! This is really an unexpected surprise! I actually caught a low-grade spirit ghost!”
Lu Li waved his large hand and withdrew the Ghost-Raising Tower as he laughed.
Following that, his expression became solemn. Without saying anything else, he turned around and ran.
Clearly, he was afraid that someone would jump out and snatch his spirit ghost.
“Tsk tsk, this kid is really lucky. He even managed to find a spirit ghost after running out of spirit stones to cultivate his techniques.”
Just as Lu Li turned around and left, a red-haired man appeared in the gloomy sky. He shook his head and sighed.
“Isn’t that even better? I’ve always liked men who are lucky.”
Following that, a charming and beautiful woman appeared out of thin air beside him. She gently stroked her hair, she said with a charming smile, “Moreover, this little fellow’s running posture is exactly the same as Pervert Wang. He jumped out the window and ran away hurriedly when my husband returned home back then. It’s exactly the same, and I miss it. Don’t you think so, my lovely husband and Pervert Wang?”
As she spoke, she suddenly lowered her head and touched her stomach.
Upon seeing this scene, the red-haired man’s expression changed drastically. As if he had recalled something terrible, he immediately teleported and disappeared.
He did not want to be eaten by the sinister widow and become the resentful and malicious soul in her stomach that would never be reincarnated.
At this time, Lu Li had already returned to his pavilion, and he went straight to the top floor.
Under the sunlight, Lu Li sat on the huge jade bed and began to cultivate his Purple Clouds Sun Refining Sutra.
He held the Ghost-Raising Tower in his hand and carefully felt it.
In his senses, an extremely weak golden ghostly qi appeared within the Ghost-Raising Tower.
It was a low-grade spirit ghost!
This low-grade spirit ghost seemed to have been greatly shocked. It hid in a corner of the Ghost-Raising Tower and did not move at all.
The ghostly qi around its body also became very faint.
It seemed as if it would disappear at any time.
However, at this time, wisps of black ghostly qi floated from the bottom of the Ghost-Raising Tower and automatically merged with the low-grade spirit ghost, enriching and nourishing the the ghost spirit.
The spirit ghost gradually formed its ghostly qi.
Only then did Lu Li relax.
Fortunately, his Ghost-Raising Tower was able to help the injured spirit ghost to recover and become stronger. Otherwise, when its qi disappeared, the spirit ghost would also die under the great power of heaven and earth.
With that, the 10,000 low-grade spirit stones would be gone.
Yes. Lu Li decided to sell the low-grade spirit ghost.
The reason was very simple.
He was now so poor that he did not have the time, energy, and money to nurture the low-grade spirit ghost.
Secondly, he was broke.
He needed a large amount of low-grade spirit stones to quickly increase his cultivation speed and strength.
Most importantly, his Heavenly Blood-Devouring Technique also knew how to help him find spirit ghosts to supplement his expenses. Perhaps next time, he would directly find a middle-grade spirit ghost! Maybe even a high-grade spirit ghost!
Spirit ghosts were classified into 4 grades: low-grade, middle-grade, high-grade, and top-grade.
Low-grade spirit ghosts could only cultivate to the foundation stage at most.
Middle-grade spirit ghosts had a small chance of advancing to the Jin Dan stage.
High-grade spirit ghosts had a high chance of cultivating to the Jin Dan stage, and even had a slight chance of advancing to the Demigod stage!
As for the top-grade spirit ghosts, it was said that they could become god, or even higher levels.
The method to determine the grade of a spirit ghost was also very simple. The higher the grade, the richer the golden light around the body of the spirit ghost.
Once a legendary top-grade spirit ghost was born, its golden light would illuminate a hundred miles away! It would be terrifying and shocking!
Naturally, the higher the grade, the rarer it was.
The entire Netherworld Ghost sect had been established for more than 300 years, but only 3 top-grade spirit ghost and 20 top-grade spirit ghost had appeared.
“I hope that the next time I go out with my Heavenly Blood-Devouring Technique, I can find a middle-grade spirit ghost. That would be awesome.”
Lu Li was not greedy and secretly prayed for it to come true.
A middle-grade spirit ghost was equivalent to a spiritual tool of a Jin Dan stage cultivator.
It worth about 10,000 middle-grade spirit stones.
In other words, it was 1,000,000 low-grade spirit stones.
If he really found a middle-grade spirit ghost, then he could reach Jin Dan stage without worrying about the amount of spirit stones he had.
“But… who should I sell this low-grade spirit ghost to?”
Lu Li frowned.
Suddenly, 2 figures immediately appeared in his mind.
The green-clothed girl, Lu He. The other was a white-clothed Young Master, his Eighth Senior Brother, Bai Jinfei.
Should he offer it to Demonic Devil to obtain even greater benefits?
However, in the next moment, Lu Li immediately wiped away all his thoughts.
This was the Demonic sect.
The people in Demonic sect were ruthless and selfish. If Demonic Devil really took his spirit ghost and did not reward him with anything, then there was nothing he could do.
At that time, he would only lose a spirit ghost for nothing.
Lu He, that woman, was too cunning and powerful. If he looked for her, he would be easily tricked.
Therefore, he could only sell it to Bai Jinfei!
After all, they were from the same sect.
Moreover… that man seemed to have some connections. Perhaps he could get a few Buddhist cultivation techniques from Lu Li too.
Lu Li made up his mind after thinking for a while. Then, he took the Ghost-Raising Tower and left his pavilion as he headed straight to Bai Jinfei’s palace.
