Chapter 147: Demon’s Tao Conferment Bamboo Slips
“A pen? A volume of bamboo slips on the left hand?” Bai Ze’s voice sounded in his mind suddenly.
After hearing Jiang Yun’s words, Bai Ze was pretty excited. “Hey boy, is that statue holds a volume of bamboo slips on the left hand and a pen in its right hand?”
Jiang Yun knew that Bai Ze couldn’t see the world outside but only through his own Divine Sense.
Yesterday, in order to help him to absorb the Demonic Energy on the Against-Demon Bridge, Bai Ze had been completely exhausted. Therefore, he couldn’t use his Divine Sense now.
So he simply described the statue in Luo’s house and the bamboo slips that just emerged with colorful light.
After listening to Jiang Yun’s description, Bai Ze was in silence.
Jiang Yun quietly waited for a moment. When he had thought that Bai Ze would not speak again, there was a sudden scream in his mind!
“Ah!!! Demon’s Tao Conferment Bamboo Slips! It must be the Demon’s Tao Conferment Bamboo Slips!”
This sudden scream almost shattered Jiang Yun’s mind. Jiang Yun hurriedly shook his head and said, “Bai Ze, can you lower your voice?!”
However, regardless of Jiang Yun’s words, Bai Ze continued screaming, “Boy, your luck is really marvelous! How come both the Demon Refining Pen and the Demon’s Tao Conferment Bamboo Slips have showed up in front of you?!”
Jiang Yun shook his head helplessly.
Having gotten along with Bai Ze for such a long period of time, Jiang Yun clearly knew that Bai Ze had one big problem; he was very easy to get excited. Jiang Yun frowned and asked, “What is the Demon’s Tao Conferment Bamboo Slips? What use does it have?”
“To bestow Tao on demons!”
Bai Ze hurriedly continued explaining, “Because the demon is different from human beings. Their hopes of achieving the Tao is extremely hard to come true; but a Demon Forgemaster can directly confer Tao on the demon!
“As long as the Demon Forgemaster write down the name of the demon that he wants to confer onto the bamboo slips, then the demon can achieve the Tao! Therefore, this volume of bamboo slips is called the Demon’s Tao Conferment Bamboo Slips!
“In short, the Demon’s Tao Conferment Bamboo Slips is the same as the imperial edict of the emperor in your humanity, which once announces something, it would make it done and couldn’t be changed anymore!
“You should know that there are countless of demons who want their names to appear on the Demon’s Tao Conferment Bamboo Slips!
“Kid, no matter what method you use, you must get the Demon’s Tao Conferment Bamboo Slips!
“The Demon Refining Pen, the Demon’s Tao Conferment Bamboo Slips, the Demon-Refining Nine Seals! Kid, you are about to collect them all! If you can’t confer on me, I will not let you go even if I become a ghost!”
Bai Ze’s explanation made Jiang Yun totally stunned. He was not shocked by the appearance of the Demon’s Tao Conferment Bamboo Slips, but by the strong power of a Demon Forgemaster.
It was known that all the spiritual beings including humankind and demons were cultivating for finding and achieving the way to their own Tao.
However, Demon Forgemasters could have the ability to directly confer Tao on demons, and the only thing they needed to do was just to write the name of the demon on the bamboo slips!
It sounded too miraculous to believe it.
“It’s not as simple as you think!” Apparently Bai Ze knew Jiang Yun’s thoughts at the moment. He once again explained, “If you want to confer Tao on the demon, first you must first enlighten yourself and achieve your own Tao; and you must have enough strength. Otherwise, you can’t even leave a mark on the Demon’s Tao Conferment Bamboo Slips.”
Jiang Yun dumbfounded. This was too difficult for the present him to get Tao enlightenment. He couldn’t even dream about it, let alone to say it.
“Don’t be too discouraged. As far as I know, there was a Blood-Robe Demon Forgemaster who seemed not getting Tao enlightenment. But he wore a blood robe, walked through thousands of Words with one hand holding a pen and another holding the Demon’s Tao Conferment Bamboo Slips, and conferred Tao on the demon.”
Jiang Yun pointed at the statue and asked, “The man you said isn’t the ancestor of Luo’s family, is he?!”
“Bullshit!” Bai Ze said in an angry voice, “What a noble person the Blood-Robe Demon Forgemaster is! How come such a little Luo family’s ancestor be comparable to him?! What’s more, the Blood-Robe Demon Forgemaster isn’t from your world at all.
“As for the statue in Luo’s house… In fact, all the families that did demon refining would carve statues like this one, which are actually based on the image of the Blood-Robe Demon Forgemaster.”
Jiang Yun nodded. In his mind emerged a man in a blood robe. A man who was free and wild; a man who was detached. Jiang Yun could not help but yearn for being like one day.
Withdrawing his thoughts, Jiang Yun asked another important question, “Then, why would the Demon Refining Pen and the Demon’s Tao Conferment Bamboo Slips show up in our world? It’s really incredible!”
“It can only be owed to destiny! In fact, the Demon Refining Pen can be refined only if you have the ability; but the Demon’s Tao Conferment Bamboo Slips is the one and only. It cannot be modeled. It has been passed down from the ancient times. Well, I suspect that the Demon’s Tao Conferment Bamboo Slips that Luo family owns should be incomplete.”
“Not a complete one? Then should I still grab it?”
Bai Ze’s tone had once again become excited, “Of course you should! Even if it’s not complete, even if it’s just a piece of bamboo slip, you have to grab it!”
“But I may not have the ability!”
“You can enter first and just wait for the chance. After all, you are now a Demon Forgemaster, and you have more advantages than others. Just try your best. If you really have no chance to grab it, let’s make a plan B later!”
“Well, alright. It can only be like this!”
With the end of the discussion between Jiang Yun and Bai Ze, the Demon’s Tao Conferment Bamboo Slips disappeared from the statue. But everyone was still in a state of excitement.
Originally they had regarded the meeting with masters of the Grand Medicine Sect as the biggest gain through this trip to Luo family.
They had never expected that Luo Qing would even be willing to open the Demon-Refining World and allow every force to send one person to enter it.
Although there were many dangers in the Demon-Refining World, people who had the qualifications to come to Luo family naturally were not the weaker. In fact, many of them were in the Blessing Land Realm. Hence, everyone was full of confidence.
This was a big opportunity for them!
Each force immediately began to secretly discuss who should be dispatched to enter the world. Only Jiang Yun and Xiao Zheng were calm.
Jiang Yun came to Luo family alone, and he didn’t need to discuss with anyone. As long as Luo family allowed, he would definitely enter it. But looking at Xiao Zheng’s appearance, he seemed to have no interest in the Demon-Refining World.
At this time, Luo BaiChuan went to the front of everyone and said loudly, “My guests! The Demon-Refining World will not be open until the three masters of Grand Medicine Sect have finished recruiting. Therefore, please be calm, and let’s welcome master Xiao!”
Xiao Zheng didn’t like such occasion at all. But since Liu Hao still hid himself in his room and refused to come out, while Xie XiaoYong was too young to represent the Grand Medicine Sect in such an occasion, he could only stand out.
Walking to the front of the crowd, Xiao Zheng said with a cold face, “I believe everyone knows the purpose of our coming this time.
“We are entrusted by our sect, and are going to recruit a few disciples who are interested in cultivating medicinal Tao. However, the Grand Medicine Sect has always been strict in recruiting. Therefore, I will arrange a small test first.”
