A Will Eternal - chapter-102
Months flew by. Bai Xiaochun quickly became very familiar with the areas
on Fragrant Cloud Peak set aside for the Inner Sect. Eventually, the
novelty of being an Inner Sect disciple began to wear off.
He spent most of his time in his immortal’s cave, either practicing
cultivation or concocting medicine in his personal medicine concocting
workshop. By this point, he had created quite a few Aphrodisiac Pills.
He was happy. His purpose in practicing cultivation was to live forever,
and the higher his cultivation base grew, the greater his longevity
His main interest was concocting spirit medicines. After all, he still
dreamed of concocting a pill that could help him live forever. In order
to make that dream come true, he constantly worked with spirit medicine.
However, the cruel reality of the situation was that after a few months
passed, he found that, to his bitterness, he had run out of medicinal
Even though the prize for taking first place in the Chosen battles had
been 10,000 spirit stones, the ingredients for tier-3 spirit medicines
weren’t sold in the market outside the sect. He could only rely on
people from the cultivator clans to find them for him, and the prices
The best thing to do was build up enough merit points to be able to
acquire the ingredients from the sect.
“Merit points….” he thought as he sat there in his immortal’s cave,
frowning. What he lacked most was merit points. After some hesitation, he
left his immortal’s cave and went to the Mission Stele set aside for
Inner Sect disciples.
Back in the Outer Sect, the Missions Office had always been packed, but
the Inner Sect was different. Inner Sect disciples were all very busy,
and viewed their time as precious. Only a few people could be seen in the
area. Bai Xiaochun strolled up and stood in front of the stele, trying to
pick a mission.
“That one’s way too dangerous!” he muttered. “That one doesn’t
give enough merit points! I don’t want any long-term missions….”
Eventually, his eyes came to rest on a mission assigned by one of the
sect elders, which called for Lifestealer cores. For every core provided,
1,000 merit points would be rewarded.

It even provided the most common location to find Lifestealers, which was
in the Wildweed Mountains a short distance from the Spirit Stream Sect.
Muttering to himself in thought, Bai Xiaochun recalled the description of
Lifestealers from the fourth volume of spirit creatures. Actually, they
weren’t wild beasts, but rather, a miraculous parasitic life form.
They would select a host, a wild beast of some sort, which they would
then cause to grow a second head. When the second head was fully formed,
the beast would then wither up and die, and the matured Lifestealer would
transform into a Ninedays Finch.
During the parasitic phase of its life, it was extremely useful as an
ingredient in various types of medicines. However, once it matured and
exploded out from the second head, becoming a Ninedays Finch, it was
completely useless. Furthermore, Ninedays Finches only lived for nine
days, after which they would die, producing a new Lifestealer. The
Lifestealer would then select a new host, and the process would begin
It was almost like the cycle of reincarnation….
Lifestealers were very rare, and in some ways, they lived forever,
eternally reincarnating over and over again.
Bai Xiaochun clearly remembered how impressed he had been the first time
he read about Lifestealers in the fourth volume of spirit creatures.
“The hard part of this mission is actually finding the Lifestealers.
The Wildweed Mountains are too vast. It would be way too annoying to try
to find them one by one. Accumulating merit points that way would be a
waste of time.”
After doing some more research into the Wildweed Mountains, he confirmed
that despite how vast they were, most animals were under the Foundation
Eventually, he decided to accept the mission. However, he didn’t
immediately set forth from the sect. First, he returned to his immortal’s
cave to make a few preparations. Finally, he hopped onto the Golden Crow
Sword and shot off into the distance.

The Wildweed Mountains weren’t very far from the Spirit Stream Sect.
Considering his speed when using the Golden Crow Sword, it would only
take a day of travel to reach them. Unfortunately, due to the fact that
his current cultivation base was too low to be able to fly for a long
time, he had to alternate between flying and running. Four days later, he
finally reached the Wildweed Mountains.
A majestic scene spread out in front of him, with lushly vegetated
mountains rising up in all directions. It was like a never-ending jungle,
from within which rose the cries of various birds and beasts.
Instead of going to search for Lifestealers, he explored the mountains
for about half a month until he found a valley which acted as a natural
pathway between two main parts of the jungle. There, he settled down in
the branches of a tall tree and peered down into the valley below.
“Using normal search methods would be a waste of time, and would rely
on blind luck. Even with fortune on my side, I might only find one. If I
don’t get lucky, I might not be able to find a single one in a month.
“It’s time to show off how smart I am.” Sticking his chin up, he
blurred into motion, shooting off into the distance.
The next day, he stood at the top of a mountain, feeling the direction of
the wind. Just as he was about to produce an Aphrodisiac Pill, he
suddenly thought of something, and called out at the top of his lungs,
“Is anyone around?! Are there any disciples from the Spirit Stream Sect
here?!” From the high-pitched tone of his cry, it almost sounded like
he was crying out for help.
Some distance away, a figure could be seen in the jungle, fighting with a
wild beast. It was an icily arrogant young man wearing the robe of an
Inner Sect disciple of the Spirit Stream Sect. When he heard Bai
Xiaochun’s cry, a look of scorn appeared in his eyes.
“Another disciple with a weak cultivation base who’s overestimated
himself and is now crying out for help. Only the strong should come out
into the Wildweed Mountains.” He arrogantly chose not to even attempt
to help out. Although the sect emphasized teamwork, some people were
naturally unsociable, and that couldn’t be avoided.
After crying out a few times but getting no response, Bai Xiaochun felt a
bit more at ease. With that, he tossed out the Aphrodisiac Pill. Moments
later, a popping sound could be heard as the pill exploded, transforming
into a fine powder which was carried off by the wind.

Soon, the animals some distance away, regardless of what they were doing,
caught the scent of the powder in the wind and began to tremble. Eyes
bloodshot, they began to howl at the tops of their lungs.
As soon as the howling sounds rose up, two wings popped out behind Bai
Xiaochun, and he sped away.
The arrogant disciple from earlier suddenly noticed that the beast he was
fighting had begun trembling. Its eyes turned red, and, howling, it
pounced toward him. Badly frightened, the young man took to flight.
Unfortunately, no matter what he did, the beast only continued to howl
and chase him down. Its eyes were bright red, and it seemed to have gone
mad. Shocked, the young man fled for his life until he had no choice but
to cry out for help.
By that time, Bai Xiaochun was too far away to hear….
Six hours later in another windy area, Bai Xiaochun cried out a few
times, waited for a bit, and seeing that no one responded, threw out
another Aphrodisiac Pill.
Soon, the howls of beasts rose up.
For the following two days, he ceaselessly traveled in a set perimeter
around the valley he’d picked, throwing out Aphrodisiac Pills. He
quickly covered a large area, within which all of the animals were going
mad, howling at the tops of their lungs and lunging around violently.
Seeing that he’d reached a point where things were almost beyond his
control, Bai Xiaochun flew back to the valley he’d selected. Eyes
shining, he waved the Golden Crow Sword to cut open a small path in the
trees, then pulled out a bunch of Pheromone Pills and crushed them. Soon,
a fragrant aroma began to spread out.

He was very careful not to get any of the powder on himself, and even as
he backed away, changed into a new set of clothes just to be safe. Then
he perched above the valley and looked down toward the path he’d
“Alright, lovely beasts… hurry up,” he said, humming a little tune
as he waited eagerly.
Time passed. The aroma of the Pheromone Pill slowly spread out, and the
beasts which had been affected by the Aphrodisiac Pill slowly began to go
more and more crazy. Howling, they began to charge toward the valley at
top speed, more and more of them, like a surging tide that caused the
ground to quake.
Soon, the first wave of beasts was closing in, and Bai Xiaochun rose to
his feet and looked down with rapt attention at the valley below. In the
blink of an eye, a vast group of strange beasts could be seen charging
down the path he’d created. Bai Xiaochun’s eyes went wide at the sight
of so many creatures. But then, his eyes glittered, and his right hand
flashed with an incantation gesture. Instantly, the Golden Crow Sword
flew out toward a fierce-looking tiger.
Shockingly, a second head was growing out of the tiger’s back. Golden
light flickered, and the second head exploded. A core flew out, which Bai
Xiaochun expertly grabbed ahold of and then threw into his bag of
holding. Next, the golden light flashed toward another two-headed
The flood of beasts lasted for about two hours, and the valley was almost
completely destroyed in the process. Bai Xiaochun was radiant with
delight. His sword flashed over and over again, and by the time the flood
of beasts had dispersed, he was delighted to find that he had collected
ten Lifestealer cores.
“Bai Xiaochun’s wits come out on top again!” Looking very pleased,
he stored the cores safely in his bag of holding and then blurred into
motion, heading off to another part of the Wildweed Mountains.
Not very long after he left, a young man could be seen in the jungle. His
clothes were tattered, and he seemed to be in a very sorry state. He was
shaking, and even had trouble walking. A blank look could be seen in his
eyes that very closely resembled the look which had appeared in Beihan
Lie’s eyes not so long ago….
Tears streamed down his cheeks as he muttered, “What’s going on in the
Wildweed Mountains…? What’s going on with the world…? The beasts
here don’t eat people, they… I… I…”

Days flew by. Bai Xiaochun used the Aphrodisiac Pill to throw the
Wildweed Mountains into complete chaos. Everywhere he went, the beasts
would go mad. Of course, before throwing the pills out into the air, he
would always call out to make sure he was alone.
Occasionally disciples would respond, and when they did, he would
carefully explain his plan, ask them to leave, and give them a
Lifestealer core as compensation. He would also ask them to spread word
to other disciples to stay away. Most of the disciples that saw him
recognized him, and would flee, trembling in fear.
