Chapter 3: Yinhai. 

At night, in a secluded alley.

Yin Xiu faced a young man whose eyes were blank and dull, and had a slightly dazed expression on his face.

After a moment, after taking a deep breath, Yin Xiu pointed his eyebrows (frowning in a good way) at the youth in front of him, and then disappeared from the youth in an instant.

The young man also regained his senses in a moment. He looked around with a slight suspicion in his eyes, before finally shaking his head and walking out of the alley.

"Unexpectedly, in this short period of eighty years, the world has undergone such a major change. It's not even an exaggeration to say that the world was changing in each passing day." On the top of a tall building, Yin Xiu put his arms around his chest, as he quietly overlooked the brightly lit city. In this nightly scene, he was silently talking to himself.

Moments ago, he looked though the memory of that young man with 'soul search', and now has a very clear understanding of the situation of the current Earth. As he processed the information, Yin Xiu couldn't help but sigh. The Earth had changed so much in the eighty years after he left.

"In the past eighty years, the entire country of China has gone through so many catastrophes and great changes. I don't know how's little brother doing... Nor the situation of his descendants (relatives/family)."

Yin Xiu could not be sure about this.

With a light sigh, Yin Xiu stretched out his hand to hug Xiaoman that was on his shoulders. Looking at the brightly lit night view of the modern city, he whispered: "Let’s go back and take a look."

As soon as his voice sounded, Yin Xiu's body suddenly fell from the building. He was floating in the air. At the same time, an ancient-looking long sword appeared at his feet. With a faint light flashing, the long sword supported Yin Xiu like a rocket that had ignited a booster and flew away instantly towards the distant night...

Yinhai City.

A very faint light faintly flew in from a far distance in the dark night sky. The light was so weak that people on the ground could barely see it with naked eyes.

It was a mysterious power that even the city's securities and their radars couldn't detect the approaching luminous object.

"Yinhai, I'm finally back after eighty years!"

Yin Xiu who stood on the sword was suspended at an altitude of several hundred meters, overlooking the city of Yinhai at his feet, with a surge of blood in his heart. After being away from his hometown, and now finally returning, his heart that has become extremely silent after nearly a hundred years of cultivation, was faintly ignited and activated at this moment.

It's a pity that the Yinhai City today and the Yinhai City in Yin Xiu's memory were completely different. The city had undergone earth-shaking changes. The old and quaint buildings from 80 years ago have been replaced by many tall buildings. The neon lights light up the whole city blooming with modern brilliance amidst the breath of the dark night.

Also because of such earth-shaking changes, although Yin Xiu's spiritual sense enveloped the entire Yinhai City, he was unable to find out where his home was.   

"This is the south gate of the old city, so the east gate (still of the old city) is probably located near this 'Fengyu Building'. It's about eight to nine miles away from the east gate... "

Yin Xiu slowly identified the location of his original home. The current Yinhai City is much larger than it was eighty years ago. If he wants to find the location of his original home, he has to do a good screening and comparison. Fortunately, he finally found a reference object, which is the preserved south gate of the old city.

"If there is no accident (that had happened after he left), it should be that area..."   

The sword under Yin Xiu's feet moved suddenly again, and in the blink of an eye he flew to an area locked by his spiritual sense. There he found a deserted place. 

Yin Xiu controlled the sword and landed slowly. It was past eleven o'clock late at night, and there were few pedestrians on the road. Yin Xiu walked on the street, looking at the completely unfamiliar buildings and environment around him, it was difficult for him to tell where his original home was. He nonetheless continued to search the small area near him, trying hard to find some familiar references.

After about a few minutes, Yin Xiu was startled. Immediately afterwards, a complex expression of joy and disappointment appeared on his face.

"Yinhai University? Unexpectedly, it has become a university. It seems that little brother and his descendants is no longer here..."

Yin Xiu muttered to himself in a daze. His right hand couldn't help stroking Xiaoman who was in his arms.

As if feeling the faint disappointment in Yin Xiu's heart, Xiaoman stuck his head out and looked up at Yin Xiu.

"Gaj!" It squeaked twice, as if he was comforting Yin Xiu.

Yin Xiu looked down at Xiaoman as he couldn't help smiling, he said, "Don't worry, I more or less already expected it."

After speaking, Yin Xiu patted Xiaoman's head twice.

Withdrawing his spiritual sense, Yin Xiu stepped forward towards 'Yinhai University'.

The reason why he determined that it was his former home was because Yin Xiu discovered that a cedar tree planted in his yard was in Yinhai University.

Not long after, Yin Xiu came to the gate of Yinhai University.

At this time, the gate of Yinhai University was closed, and two security guards were standing guard at the gate.

Yin Xiu took a look at the entrance of Yinhai University and left. He prepared to wait until dawn before going in for a look.


Under an overpass not far from Yinhai University, Yin Xiu sat quietly in a dark corner, meditating and breathing. He is now at the peak Xiantian cultivation base, and he doesn't need to cultivate deliberately anymore. But even though that was the case and his cultivation now will not increase the true essence in his body. Yin Xiu still did so because he just wants to mediate.

As far as his current cultivation base is concerned, the thin spiritual energy on Earth means that he has to cultivate for ten and a half days without stopping if he really wants to increase his true essence by a bit, which is really inefficient.

If one day his cultivation level can really break through to Disaster Realm (Level), and wants to improve his true essence further, he will have to rely on the spirit stones he brought back from the Cultivation world!

There are a lot of spirit stones in his storage ring. And among them were mainly high-grade spirit stones, with a small amount of middle-grade spirit stones and very few low-grade spirit stones and top-grade spirit stones.

With Yin Xiu's cultivation at the peak of Xiantian, he is a top-level figure in the cultivation world. It was really simple for him to collect some spirit stones.   Only those treasures that can be met and cannot be found, even for a person of his level, is obtained by luck and opportunity. As for other things, such as spirit stones or more ordinary elixir and refining materials, there is no shortage at all, basically you can get as many as you want with strength.

Before returning to Earth, Yin Xiu deliberately collected some spirit stones. It is for the purpose that in the future, if he can truly achieve a breakthrough on Earth, and if his cultivation base breaks through Disaster Realm, he would have enough spirit stones to cultivate with and improve his true essence.
