Chapter 0941: Furnace Sand’s Changes
Shui Yueke fell silent. If she didn’t have a deep hatred, she would have definitely joined Yan Ji and Ning Cheng. But she couldn’t, she wanted revenge, and for that, she had to find a place to shape her dao. One day, she would definitely find a way to fight against 9-Revolving Sacred Dao Pond to avenge her sister Shui Yuexin and her family.
“Senior Apprentice Sister Yan Ji, how about this. This place is still too close to 9-Revolving Sacred Dao Pond. Let’s fly for a few months straight. If Ning Cheng still doesn’t wake up by then, I’ll look for a place to shape my dao.” Shui Yueke quickly decided. If Ning Cheng couldn’t wake up in a few months, then I’m afraid he wouldn’t wake up at all.
Without people from 9-Revolving Sacred Dao Pond chasing after them, Yan Ji should be more than enough to care for Ning Cheng. But if the 9-Revolving Sacred Dao Sect decided to pursue Yan Ji or herself, even adding a few hundred of her would be of no help. She had to go shape her dao and reach Dao Sculpting Realm. Without shaping her dao, how could she even think of taking revenge for her sister?
Furnace Sands. It wasn’t an item but the name of a place.
Rumour has it that Furnace Sands got its name because a powerful Pill Sage had once used this place to refine pills. The Pill Sage ultimately failed the refinement, ruining the pills in the furnace due to underestimating the difficulty of refining those pills. Moreover, the materials in the furnace were all top-grade heavenly treasures, and this Pill Saint could no longer collect the materials to begin another refinement. As such, in a fit of rage, the Pill Sage smashed the entire furnace.
What’s more, when the Pill Sage had started to refine the pills, he had absorbed more than 90% of the spirit aura from the surrounding area. Therefore, when he smashed the furnace, the terrifying temperatures scorched the area, turning it into an actual barren land.
Since then, this place had become devoid of spiritual plants and even normal life.
After countless years had passed, some life slowly returned to this place, and some low-level spiritual grasses started to appear. However, the spirit energy here still remained incredibly thin.
Therefore, cultivators who couldn’t cultivate or be unable to advance slowly migrated to this place. Eventually, a settlement formed in this area. The people here all had low cultivation, and the settlement even had ordinary people with no cultivation.
In the Grand Essence Realm, having no cultivation meant certain death. As such, one would rarely find a place with ordinary people in the Grand Essence Realm. Let alone a place where ordinary people lived with cultivators with low cultivation.
Furnace Sands was one such place. However, most people here were descendants of cultivators who could not cultivate or raise their cultivation level.
If one looked at the entire Furnace Sands from above, it would look like a relatively large village with irregular misshapen buildings everywhere. Even the medicine shops, spiritual herb stores and weapon stalls looked humble. If a cultivator suddenly decided to come to Furnace Sands, he would never believe that such a place existed in the Grand Essence Realm. He would definitely think that this place was nothing more than one corner of the lowest level of a true cultivation interface.
But this place was indeed within the Grand Essence Realm, only at the edge of the Grand Essence Realm.
The sun had already started to set in the west.
One could see many figures starting to return one after another from afar. These were primarily ordinary people and low-level cultivators who had ventured to the Black and White Mountains searching for cultivation resources.
Those with high cultivation levels usually didn’t return every day but stayed in the Black and White Mountain Range, returning only once or twice a month for supplies.
A woman in grey came from afar, the gradually sloping sunset dragging her figure long. One could also see a sleeping figure secured to her by what looked like a string on her back.
Her hair looked a little dishevelled by the evening breeze, but the small locks of hair beside her veiled face added a little more softness to her beauty.
All the people who lived in Furnace Sands knew this woman in grey and knew Yan Ji’s strength.
Yes, this woman in grey was none other than Yan Ji. Shui Yueke stayed with her for six months. But she had to leave to shape her dao. From then on, Yan Ji led Ning Cheng to a remote place till they arrived at Furnace Sands.
Furnace Sands lacked in spirit aura, which also meant that strong people would usually never come here. As such, this was the most suitable place to live for Yan Ji right now.
Counting up, Yan Ji had been in Furnace Sands for three years by now. And in these three years, she never left Ning Cheng alone. Even when she went to the Black and White Mountains searching for cultivation resources, she never put Ning Cheng down.
Thanks to that one Sacred Marrow Fruit, Yan Ji had advanced to the middle stage of Life and Death Realm, even in a place with barely any spirit aura.
In Furnace Sands, Yan Ji’s cultivation wasn’t the highest, but she definitely belonged to the strongest within Furnace Sands. As such, very few people came to provoke her. As for any unenlightened people that came over to trouble her, she didn’t hesitate to kill them.
Yan Ji had travelled alone from the starry sky to the void, from one celestial river to another. Even coming to the Grand Essence Realm, she didn’t rely on anyone for anything. With her own strength, Yan Ji had managed to reach the Live and Death Realm. She no longer kept count of the number of life and death experiences she had faced along the way. It also meant that she had a wealth of combat experience and wasn’t afraid of cultivators of the same rank. Even those above her level, she wasn’t scared to fight them.
Therefore, coming to a corner like Furnace Sands naturally wouldn’t make her fear ordinary foot soldiers.

Initially, Yan Ji wanted to rush to the late-stage Life and Death Realm before leaving Black and White Mountain to search for an even more secluded area. However, she started to feel a faint fluctuation in Ning Cheng’s aura. Moreover, this aura fluctuation was growing stronger and stronger with each passing day.
