Chapter 857 The Compliant Golden-Hooped Rod (2)
This time, the grotto-heaven that Ji Lutian brought him to was naturally not the Xu Ling Grotto-Heaven.
The place they arrived at was the Sima Grotto-Heaven, where Zheng Chengan was.
It was also where Great Xia was moving to.
Ji Lutian and Zhou Shu silently entered the Sima Grotto-Heaven without alerting Zheng Chengan or anyone else.
Now that the entrance of the Sima Grotto-Heaven was wide open, countless humans were constantly migrating in. With their abilities, they could naturally blend in with the crowd.
The two of them walked in the Sima Grotto-Heaven. As they walked, Ji Lutian gave Zhou Shu an introduction to the Sima Grotto-Heaven.
"The Sima Grotto-Heaven was one of the top thirty-six Grotto-Heavens back then. Its territory is so large that it's not smaller than Great Qin's," Ji Lutian said. "There are mountains and rivers here, and it can easily accommodate billions of humans. The human race has nothing to worry about."
"Mr. Ji, I'm a little curious. Since the Sima Grotto-Heaven is still here, the master of the Sima Grotto-Heaven should still be alive, right? Why hasn't he appeared?"
"He is indeed still alive, but he can't just show up whenever he wants. Even the masters of grotto-heavens don't have longevity that lasts as long as heaven and earth. Therefore, unless necessary, they will enter seclusion and sleep to slow down the pa.s.sage of their lives," Ji Lutian said casually.
"Are you going to ask me how w.a.n.g Xuanyi does it?" Ji Lutian smiled. "w.a.n.g Xuanyi is different. You'll find out in the future."
Zhou Shu rolled his eyes unhappily. You've already said it halfway, but you're still keeping me in suspense. I won't ask.
"That's the land the Sima Grotto-Heaven has a.s.signed to Great Xia." Ji Lutian pointed at a river valley. "Although it's only as big as the two states of the Ten Nations in the past, it won't be a problem to survive."
Zhou Shu nodded. They were already living under someone else's roof. How high could their expectations be?
This was already not bad.
"Mr. Ji, let's get down to business." Zhou Shu didn't go over to greet the people of Great Xia. Instead, he looked at Ji Lutian.
"You're right. Business is more important." Ji Lutian nodded. He activated his movement technique and sped forward.
A moment later, the two of them arrived at a beautiful place.
Zhou Shu subconsciously sized up his surroundings.
He had thought that he would see what he had seen at the bottom of the Endless Sea, but there were no volcanoes here, nor were there any signs of forging.
"There's no need to look. Let's find a master for the Compliant Golden-Hooped Rod first. We need a helper where we're going next," Ji Lutian said with a smile.
He took a few steps forward and stomped slightly, causing the ground to tremble.
"Brother Zheng, come out and meet guests," Ji Lutian said.
Zhou Shu: "…"
The ground shook. Suddenly, a person appeared in front of them as if he had grown out of the ground.
"Ji Lutian? You're a guest? Even if you're a guest, you're an evil guest." The person who emerged from the ground was a man with a white beard and hair. He was handsome and had a youthful appearance.
"Brother Zheng, what are you saying? I haven't offended you, right?" The smile on Ji Lutian's face didn't change. "If you don't welcome me now, you'll regret it later."
"I'll regret it? If I regret it, I'll be your grandson." The man looked sage-like, but his words were the complete opposite of his image. He rolled his eyes.
Zhou Shu was speechless. If the Compliant Golden-Hooped Rod fell into the hands of this grandson… although it did have something to do with surnamed Sun.
Although he didn't know who this man was, this was the Sima Grotto-Heaven, and his surname was Zheng. More likely than not, he was Zheng Chengan's elder.
Moreover, Ji Lutian had previously said that he was forging divine weapons to compensate the Grotto-heaven realm experts of the human race for cutting down their cultivation.
The man in front of him was definitely at the Grotto-Heaven realm. The Compliant Golden-Hooped Rod wouldn't be wasted in his hands.
While Ji Lutian and the man surnamed Zheng were bickering, these thoughts had already flashed through Zhou Shu's mind.
"I'm not going to waste my breath with you. I'm here to give you a divine weapon," Ji Lutian said. "If you don't like it, I'll give it to someone else."

The man surnamed Zheng's expression froze slightly. He looked at Ji Lutian. "You haven't given up?"
Zheng Jingyun raised his hand and grabbed the Compliant Golden-Hooped Rod. His arm sank slightly, and a strange expression flashed across his face.
What a heavy rod!
"This is the Compliant Golden-Hooped Rod. It can be big or small. It can change according to your wishes," Ji Lutian said. "This Compliant Golden-Hooped Rod is also known as the Sea-Pacifying G.o.dly Pillar. It can even calm the endless storm over the Endless Sea."
Veins popped out on Zhou Shu's forehead as he mentioned calming the Endless Sea. He had never said this before.
Although the Compliant Golden-Hooped Rod was also called the Sea-Pacifying G.o.dly Pillar and indeed had the effect of calming the sea, although he didn't dare to say that it was impossible to stabilize the endless storm above the Endless Sea, the person who could do it had to be strong enough.
Ji Lutian was bragging!
But this had nothing to do with Zhou Shu, so he naturally wouldn't expose him.
Zheng Jingyun wasn't a fool, so he naturally wouldn't believe him so easily. He circulated the spiritual essence in his body and injected it into the Compliant Golden-Hooped Rod to sense its power.
"Did you personally forge this Compliant Golden-Hooped Rod?" Zheng Jingyun asked solemnly.
"No." Ji Lutian shook his head. "This Compliant Golden-Hooped Rod was forged from otherworldly divine iron. I placed the otherworldly divine iron in the fire of the earth's core and smelted it for ten thousand years. I also risked my face to invite the most talented forger in the world and spent countless heavenly treasures to forge it."
Ji Lutian said in a deep voice, "Brother Zheng, as long as you sever your Grotto-Heaven realm cultivation, this Compliant Golden-Hooped Rod will be yours."
Zheng Jingyun's pupils constricted slightly. "This Compliant Golden-Hooped Rod is indeed a good connate divine weapon, but in terms of strength, can it be stronger than the Heavenly Hub of the Red Water Heaven of Dan Mountain?"
Ji Lutian said, "The Heavenly Hub is already broken. In this world, the Compliant Golden-Hooped Rod is the divine weapon with the strongest offensive power."
Zheng Jingyun shook his head. "Not necessarily. It's not even a grotto-heaven divine weapon."
Ji Lutian said seriously, "It's indeed not a grotto-heaven divine weapon, but its main material has been immersed in the Endless Sea for tens of thousands of years. On the Endless Sea, whoever holds the Compliant Golden-Hooped Rod is invincible!"
