Chapter 19 – Territorial refurbishment
The Thunder-Yang Tree had finished growing and its tree roots had occupied the entire Crescent Mountain.
However, right now, the reconstruction of the domain has only just begun!
At the center of Crescent Mountain, within a narrow space, there was a small pond of spiritual water, which Zhang Han needed.
Thus, the tree roots of Thunder-Yang Tree trembled continuously, seemingly just like an octopus brandishing its tentacles.
The tree roots directly moved the narrow space to right below the Thunder-Yang Tree.
As for the other tree roots, they were sweeping and trembling within the underground, seemingly just like they were opening up tunnels.
Not long after, within the inside of Crescent Mountain, a winding corridor shape space was built.
A branch of the Thunder-Yang Tree plunged into the spiritual water and absorbed all of the spiritual water.
In the next moment, the tree roots that were within the winding corridor shape cave suddenly released out water.
Those water, all of it were spiritual water! In a moment, the entire winding corridor shape cave was filled with spiritual water.
And right below the Thunder-Yang Tree, at the tree roots part, drips of water were slowly dripping downwards.
The water droplets had a milky white color and were sparkling and translucent.
This water was rank 1 spiritual treasure, Pure-Yang Water!
Zhang Hans mouth lightly spat out a word.
Immediately, Thunder-Yang Tree began to operate.
At the mountaintop of Crescent Mountain, all of the precipitous terrains swelled upward.
After smoothening out to a moderate level, then did the change stop.
At the surroundings of Crescent Mountain, the ground started trembling, at the 3 sides of the mountain, the ground terrain started to rise upwards, forming a small scale steep cliff which was 3 meters tall.
At the direction towards Crescent Gulf, the road there did not change at all.
The reason why Zhang Han made those small-scale steep cliff was to prevent other people from coming to Crescent Mountain!
Crescent Mountain has already been occupied by me and you people still want to come here to climb mountain Go to other places instead!
The exterior appearance reconstruction had been finished.
Right now, all that was left were the specific details.
Zhang Han pressed his palm onto Thunder-Yang Tree and closed his eyes.
He was able to feel and sense everything that was within Crescent Mountain.
A grass, a wood, a granule, a stone, all of it were within his mind.
The current situation of Crescent Mountain right now was that there were a lot of trees and very little space.
But this was a small later.
Zhang Han used his own consciousness to connect to Thunder-Yang Trees energy and began another part of the reconstruction.
In the middle of Crescent Mountain, the ground rolled continuously and the trees began to move outwards in all directions.
In a moment, a large vacant space appeared in the middle of Crescent Mountain, while the trees were all situated all around the large vacant space, seemingly just like a perimeter wall that was formed around the large vacant space.
The trees were densely packed together, especially the side that was near the road, where trees stood in great numbers, seemingly just like a city wall.
At the 3 other sides of Crescent Mountain, the gap of each trees was also very short, and furthermore, under Zhang Hans control, the branches of all the different trees extended downwards, forming a big net.
Therefore, even if someone was to climb over the 3 meters tall steep cliff, when faced against those messy and hard branches, even if they wanted to climb up to the mountaintop of Crescent Mountain, they would also have to spend a large amount of time.
In addition, normally when trees were assembled at the edge of a mountain and were crowded together, it was disadvantageous for the trees to grow.
But at Crescent Mountain, under the nourishment of spiritual soil, there was no disadvantageous for the trees to grow at all.
Even if the trees were all packed too closely, it wouldnt even matter too.
But, if the trees were all packed too closely together, the aesthetic of it would be somewhat unpleasing to the eyes.
If this kind of transformation was to be seen by someone else, they would surely shout out load that a miracle was happening in front of their eyes.
Although no human was able to see it, a dog was able to see it.
It was the Chinese rural dog that had come into contact with Zhang Han once.
Seeing that the trees there were around him continuously moving around, the dog had already been frightened dumb and was shivering its body as it stood on the ground.
After a while, the moving of the trees stopped and the dog that was standing on the ground saw Zhang Han who was below the huge tree that was situated at the mountaintop.
“It is him”
The doggys memory was very good.
With just a look, it recognized Zhang Han.
After mustering up its courage, the dog quietly walked towards Zhang Han.
After walking up to the point that it was approximately 10 meters away from Zhang Han, it sat on the ground at looked at Zhang Han curiously.
Towards the arrival of the doggy, Zhang Han was naturally well aware.
However, he did not bother about the dog and continued reconstructing Crescent Mountain.
Right now, all that was left was to make the areas.
At Crescent Mountain, there was not only tall trees, there was also quite a few flowers and plants.
There was even a few hollies that was normally used for the purpose of making fence at city neighborhood.
Within cities, holly was commonly seen.
Sometimes, holly was even able to seen at the roadside.
The growth of holly was somewhat tiny, with a height growth of about 1 meter.
The holly that could be seen within cities were normally trimmed nicely, and was a nice sight to look at.
Upon seeing the holly, Zhang Han decided to use holly to separate out each different area.
However…the amount of holly was just too little!
Using the energy that the Thunder-Yang Tree released out right now as it occupied the land, transplanting the holly and making it grow was just a matter of a blink of an eye.
Zhang Han lightly said.
Immediately, all of the weeds that were growing on the ground were all plucked out and blew away by the cold breeze.
Within a few breathes, all of the weeds were cleaned out.
The few hollies flew into the sky, then fell into the different spots that Zhang Han wanted to it be planted at.
The holly grew out one by one, just like dominoes, spreading outwards in all of the different areas, forming 3 big areas at the back of the mountain.
At the direction that Zhang Han was facing against, the left side was the planting area, the middle was the poultry area, and the right side was the pet area.
All of the flowers that were at the back of the mountain, like the Chinese redbuds, few roses, moutan peony, frangipanis that were a cross between yellow and white, and so on other flowers, were all moved to the left area of the front of the mountain.
The was a limit to the Thunder-Yang Trees energy, therefore, Zhang Han could only first reconstruct the back of the mountain for the first reconstruction.
As for the front of the mountain, that would have to wait for the second reconstruction.
Originally, the second reconstruction would need 2 to 3 year time.
But with the nourishment of Pure-Yang Water, the amount time would be reduced.
Furthermore, the Thunder-Yang Wood did not need 5 years that long amount of time to grow.
Towards Zhang Han, this was indeed an extremely good news.
“Sweet scent grass!”
Zhang Han palm was still pressed onto Thunder-Yang Tree, as he lightly said out 3 words.
Immediately, from within the leaves of the Thunder-Yang Tree, seeds of sweet scent grass were sprinkled out.
Apart from the planting area, the seeds of sweet scent grass were sprinkled out to everywhere else.
Sweet scent grass was a very common grass in the Cultivation World.
Its growth was not big, and was able to grow to become just like the lawn of a football field.
As its name implies, the main thing it could do was release out a sweet scent, which could help improve the air of a domain.
Its use was equivalent to an air purifier!
Sweet scent grass could not even be counted as a rank 1 spiritual treasure.
But back then, Zhang Han would still always store some sweet scent grass seeds within Thunder-Yang Tree, for the use of planting it every time when he changed a domain.
Evidently, the use of sweet scent grass right now was quite useful.
After finish planting sweet scent grass, Zhang Han planted Yuanqing Tree 10 meters away from Thunder-Yang Tree, then used holly to surround around the Yuanqing Tree.
Right now, Yuanqing Tree was still a small tree, just like a small poplar tree.
According to its growth speed, it was reckoned that within a year, it would be able to grow out Yuanqing Fruit.
When that time comes, Zhang Han would be able to refine Yuan Cultivation Pill and reach the Foundation Establishment Realm.
At Foundation Establishment Realm, Zhang Han would be able to release out spiritual strength from his body and use some small abilities.
When that time comes, it would also mean that Zhang Han was able to stand firmly at Earth.
“Thats right, heaven fragrant wood also have to be planted.”
Thus, Zhang Han used holly to make a small circle right beside Yuanqing Tree and placed heaven fragrant wood within the circle.
Heaven fragrant wood was a tree trunk.
The usefulness of heaven fragrant wood could be either said to be big or small.
For its usefulness to be small, it was because that heaven fragrant wood could only be used when cooking food, and for its usefulness to be big, it was because that the food that was made with the used of heaven fragrant wood was indeed very fragrant!
After finishing settling those things, it was time to subdivide the 3 areas.
“The planting area will temporarily be split into crop area and orchard area.
The few fruit tree saplings that I have collected cannot be planted currently.
The amount of energy those few fruit tree saplings need to absorbs is just too much already.
I will preserve this area first then.”
After Zhang Han pondered, the holly grew once again and split the planting area into 2.
“What should I plant in the crop area There are rice, wheat, corn, soybean, broad bean and so on other things…I will consider planting rice and wheat first for now.”
The Thunder-Yang Tree operated once again.
At the back area of the planting area, the soil started protruding upwards, forming a piece of rice field.
“Thats right, I have to make a vegetable area too.”
The holly grew once again, separating out a vegetable area in the planting area.
There were much more choices for what vegetables to grow.
The lowest minimal was to let Meng Meng eat all different kind of vegetables.
For the vegetables that were grown in Crescent Mountain, there was no such thing as being picky because all the vegetables would definitely taste good.
“Nutrition must be balanced!”
Zhang Han was very satisfied with the areas he split apart in the planting area.
The next was the poultry area.
“There needs to be a pond to use for raising fish.
In addition, Meng Meng has to drink milk, eat chicken meat, duck meat, fish meat, goat meat and so on other things.
Lets split into a small, middle and big body type poultry areas then.”
Followed by Zhang Hans thoughts, the holly began growing once again and split the poultry area into different areas.
Within the most inner side of the poultry area, the ground of the pond area concaved downwards, forming a pond that was 5 meters deep.
At the poultry area, a separate 3 meters deep small pond was able made for the poultry and cattle to drink water and swim at.
“For the pet area, I can only consider some adorable dogs and cats right now, which are able to accompany Meng Meng play.
For tigers and lions, those can be set aside for now.
I will first make a pond in the pet area.”
For the pet area, it was much simpler.
All there was to do was to make a long rectangular pond.
After subdividing finish, a trace of satisfaction flashed across Zhang Hans face.
Although it was not the best, it could only be like this for now.
“Oh, thats right, I still have to build house for them to be protected from the rain.”
Zhang Han almost forgot about this matter.
The energy of the Thunder-Yang Tree was used once again.
The tall trees that were in the distant flew into the air one by one.
While it was flying, the trees were shaved and became a plank.
Planks after planks landed onto each different areas and formed into a few different houses.
The house of the chickens was a chicken coop, where it was half a meter high away from the ground.
The weeds that were swept away by the breeze, some of it flew back and was placed into each of the chicken coops.
With weeds, the chickens would be able to make its own nest.
The ducks, gooses and other animals all have their own houses.
Those houses were all situated near the edge of the forest, seemingly somewhat neat.
Of course, the dogs and cats have their own houses too.
The row of houses was just like a bunch of personal small villas
“Although it does look neat, the aesthetic doesnt seem to be enough.” Zhang Han muttered to himself.
Using his own conscious to control the Thunder-Yang Trees energy again, a bunch of green leaves covered the top of all the small houses, seemingly just like houses which were piled up by leaves.
The use of the leaves was not only for aesthetic, but it was also able to prevent the rain from soaking the wood below.
“This times reconstruction is more or less finished.”
Zhang Han smiled slightly, then took a deep breath.
The Thunder-Yang Tree emitted out a deep noise and half of the spiritual water within the mountain cave was absorbed by Thunder-Yang Tree.
On the leaves of the Thunder-Yang Tree, droplets of water enveloped the entire Crescent Mountain.
Seemingly just like a light rainfall.
The energy of Thunder-Yang Tree cleansed Crescent Mountain one time after another time, all the way until the soil transformed into spiritual soil.
At the ground of Crescent Mountain, sweet scent grass broke out through the ground.
Apart from the planting area, the rest of Crescent Mountain was covered by an entire sheet of green color.
In a moment, Crescent Mountain was brimming with full of vitality!
Advanced to Qi Refining Realm
At the front of the mountain, flowers after flowers withered down very quickly.
But afterward, just like a phoenix being rebirth, those flowers were rebirth.
After blossoming once again, the color of those flowers was much more penetrating and the shape of the petals of the flowers was much more perfect looking.
Compared to before, the flowers right now could be said to have practically transformed into the king of flowers.
The bunch of flowers were gorgeous and pulled onto the heart of others, while at the same time attracting the gaze from others.
“Only left with meat grass now.”
Zhang Hans consciousness moved.
At the tree trunk of Thunder-Yang Tree, a bunch of meat grass seeds flew whistling towards the poultry area and pet area.
The meat grass seeds landed on the inner side of both of the areas.
As soon as the seeds were seeded into the ground, within after 2 seconds, they germinated out of the ground, then 5 seconds later, a white color bud that was as big as a glass sphere was formed on the top of each of the meat grass.
Looking from afar, the meat grass looked just like the enlarged form of the ear of wheat.
Meat grass belonged to rank 1 spiritual treasure.
The purpose of meat grass was to be used as the fodder of animals.
When eating it, there would be a vegetable kind of fragrant.
But when chewing it, it tasted like meat.
After chewing for a bit, the taste somewhat tasted like red braised pork.
This was also known by Zhang Han because of him tasting the meat grass out of curiosity.
However, Zhang Han also only took a bite.
After all, meat grass was a fodder.
Just knowing how it tasted like was enough.
After finishing with the meat grass, the first transformation of the land had also come to an end.
However, from the total amount of energy that the Thunder-Yang Tree could release for the first time, there was still half of it left.
Of course, those energy were for Zhang Han to promote to Qi Refining Realm.
Zhang Han tightly closed his eyes as he moved his right hand away from the Thunder-Yang Tree, then raised both of his hands up high.
At this time, the rural dog which was at one side was looking at Zhang Han confusedly.
If it was able to speak, it would definitely say:
“What is this stupid person doing”
However, it did not have the high level of thought process of a human after all, thus it was only confusedly looking at Zhang Han.
However, the image at the next moment scared the rural dog, causing it to quiver from its head to foot.
It was seen that the Thunder-Yang Tree suddenly emitted out a faint serene light.
At this moment, every piece of leaf was just like jadeite.
Strands of gentle multicolored light continuously gathered together, then formed into a light beam in the end as it shot towards Zhang Han and entered into Zhang Hans body.
Zhang Han felt as if he heard the sound of thunder.
Within Zhang Hans body, the energy of the Thunder-Yang Tree transformed into a sharp sword and continuously opened access to one meridian after another.
In wuxia novels, eight extraordinary meridians were paid particular attention to.
People who were able to open all eight extraordinary meridians were counted as a genius.
But right now, after Zhang Han opened up all the eight extraordinary meridians, the rest of the energy was beginning to continuously strengthen the twelve meridians of the human body.
(Eight extraordinary meridians are supposed to be hidden from the normal human body and the twelve meridians seem to be the meridians which connect from the hand to feet.
The twelve meridians flow in a full circle.)
The eight extraordinary meridians did not directly subordinate to the inner organs and also did not have a content list to match with, thus was thereby called extraordinary.
The use of the eight extraordinary meridians was its function of being able to revolve qi and blood circulation and adjusting of the twelve meridians.
After the meridians were opened, the strands of energy of the Thunder-Yang Tree gathered into the meridians.
At the start, the energy was frantic, causing Zhang Han to feel as if his body was going to burst.
At this time, what Zhang Han needed to do was to revolve the cultivation technique and refine all those energy, turning all those energy into his own spiritual strength!
“Should I still cultivate Treasure Hunting Technique this time”
Zhang Han muttered.
In his previous life, he had countless treasures and relied too much on treasures.
Thus later on, during time for the Heavenly Tribulation, he was not able to withstand the attack from the Nine Heaven God Thunder!
Right now, Zhang Han was hesitating.
“Or not, how about I cultivate Five Phase Technique In the future, after I finish cultivating into Five Phase Sage Body, I suppose that I would be able to smoothly overcome the Nine Heaven God Thunder right”
“Actually, Green Wood Monarch Technique is okay too.
The recovery strength of Green Wood Monarch Body is much more frightening and is known as the undying body.
It would definitely be able to overcome the Nine Heaven God Thunder.”
Zhang Han was somewhat hesitant.
Cultivation technique was very important, as it concerned ones strength growth.
In the big Cultivation World, cultivation techniques were split into ranks of 3, 6 and 9.
Treasure Hunting Technique was a cultivation technique which Zhang Han created after he had researched about cultivation for 300years and got a sudden moment of enlightenment.
The use of Treasure Hunting Technique was not small at all.
It was even the main reason that Zhang Han was able to get X amount of treasures.
For example, Treasure Hunting Technique was able to power-up Concealing Technique.
The Concealing Technique that was power-up afterward was known as God Concealing Technique.
Not only was God Concealing Technique able to let Zhang Hans body become completely concealed, it was even able to cause mighty experts in the Tribulation Realm to not be able to detect Zhang Han.
The effect of Treasure Hunting Technique was that it was able to power-up other techniques that were used for treasure hunting, like for example, speed, breaking formations, concealing and so on.
However, Treasure Hunting Techniques biggest effect was that it was able to power-up Treasure Smelling Nose, which was also the reason why Zhang Han did not want to give up on cultivating Treasure Hunting Technique.
“Forget it, I should just cultivate Treasure Hunting Technique.
It could be said that I am starting all over again this time.
Worst come to worst, I could just spend a bit more resources to attain Sage Corporeal Body.
Treasures are still after all the fundamental for cultivating!”
After hesitating for up to less than a minute, Zhang Han made up his mind.
Sat down cross-legged, Zhang Han started revolving Treasure Hunting Technique.
The energy within Zhang Hans body was slowly being refined and beginning to go in a cycle according to Treasure Hunting Techniques directions.
At this current moment, a smear of morning sun slowly raised up from the east, while a human and a dog were quietly sitting under Thunder-Yang Tree, revealing a warm image.
At Yunyin Garden, within Zi Yans house.
“Big sister Yan, are we going to work It is only 7 am right now.” Zhou Fei yawned.
Normally, she would sleep until 8 am.
“Lets go to work earlier today and pick finish the songs.
Tomorrow we will accompany Meng Meng to Ocean Park to play for a day.” Zi Yan said calmly.
“You can leave me out.
I will be at the company tomorrow planning out the music videos according to the songs.” Zhou Fei shook her head.
“You are not going” Zi Yan was slightly dazed.
“I go for what To be a light bulb I am not going to come along with you family of three.” Zhou Fei said petulantly.
“Who is a family of three” Zi Yan lightly spat.
(Not literally spitting, just a simple light gesture.)
“Tsk, big sister Yan, it is not that I am saying nonsense, just take a look at you right now, continuingly saying Meng Meng, Meng Meng, Meng Meng.
Meng Meng was the name that that fellow thought out.
Also, yesterday when that fellow said to go Ocean Park, you didnt even reject all and had a total look of a wife who was obedient to all of her husbands requests.
Those few years when we were at North America, you have never been like this.” Zhou Fei pouted her mouth and said.
“Dont anyhow speak nonsense!” Zi Yan glared at Zhou Fei.
Zhou Fei was well-behaved this time and did not continue speaking.
After coming downstairs, they entered black color Mercedes-Benz S600L.
The total cost of this car was close to 3million rmb.
It was the car that Zi Yan used when she was working.
Most of the time, Zhou Fei would be the one driving.
Sitting at the back of the car, Zi Yans gaze was looking outside the window, seemingly somewhat absent-minded.
A family of three going to Ocean Park huh……
Just what is my attitude towards Zhang Han
In the beginning, Zi Yan thought that her heart treated Zhang Han as a total passer-by.
However, the fact was that it wasnt the case!
It seems that, when facing against Zhang Han, she who was always tranquil and even-tempered would always not able to remain calm.
All of Zhang Hans words and actions did indeed had some influence on Zi Yan.
“Perhaps it is because of Meng Meng……”
Zi Yan lightly sighed in her heart.
Only this kind of explanation was able to convince her.
Because Zhang Han was Meng Mengs father, therefore she was not able to be indifferent towards him.
“This is definitely not romance.”
The romance in Zi Yans heart was not like this.
No matter which women, all of them would have a perfect prince charming in their heart.
The prince charming in Zi Yans heart was much more inclined to someone who was multi-talented, elegant, refined in manner, possesses both talent and virtue, and also have a passable appearance.
It was not someone like Zhang Han this down and out big young master who has a bad temper and also thought that my performing career was…what was that again that he said
‘A mere celebrity on the TV screen, it is nothing but an actor that could be casually invited with money.”
What kind of words were those Just thinking about it was enough to make Zi Yan become angry.
Especially when they were fighting, that fellow even said,if you want to stay in this messy entertainment industry, it is impossible for me to be together with you.
Please, when did I said that I wanted to be together with you Who would ever like a rigid brain who has a bad temper
Zhang Hans figure flashed pass Zi Yans mind, and as she recalled of those words, in a moment, an obscure flame of anger raised up in her heart!
“Big sister Yan Big sister Yan”
Zi Yan only reacted after Zhou Fei called out to her a couple of times.
“Ah” Zi Yan was in a daze.
“What were you thinking about We have reached the company already!” Zhou Fei said speechlessly.
“Oh, lets go then.”
“I am not going to think of that rigid brain, time to go to work!” Zi Yan thought to herself in her heart.
The sun gradually raised, and people left their home in succession to begin their either busy or leisure day.
As for Zhang Han, he sat under the Thunder-Yang Tree for an entire day.
All the way until it the sky gradually became dark, Zhang Han then finally turned those energy into his own and advanced to Qi Refining Realm.
And during this day, that Chinese rural dog was running back and forth around the Crescent Mountain which was now just like a public square.
It strolled around at each of the different areas, ate the meat grass which just grown out not long ago and walked around every doghouse in a circle for a few times as it wagged its tail back and forth excitedly.
Under Thunder-Yang Tree, when Zhang Han opened both of his eyes, a trace of radiance flashed across his eyes.
As he stood up, the bones in his entire body started making cracking sounds.
At this moment, he had been reborn!
Although it was only the Qi Refining Realm, but Zhang Han had the strength of easily close to 500kg.
Also, when using spiritual qi, his speed would become very fast, becoming able to immediately surpass those famous sprinters or long distance runners.
Although Zhang Han had this kind of strength, he would not compete against them.
Cough, cough, be low-profile.
There would be no pleasure in striving over victory with a bunch of insects!
“Woof, woof, woof……”
Suddenly, the sound of the barking of a dog could be heard.
Zhang Hans gaze congealed as he said in a deep tone:
“Which insect dare to bark in front of me”
Turning his head over, Zhang Han saw the Chinese rural dog who wanted to save him back then was barking behind him.
“Haha, so it is you!” Zhang Han smiled faintly.
He had known that it was this dog from the start.
Those words that he spoke just now were merely but a joke he made to celebrate himselfentering into cultivating for the first time.
The Chinese rural dog went up to Zhang Hans foot, displaying a boot-licking image.
Zhang Han looked at the dog and muttered to himself, then shook his head and said, “Forget about it, you had a kind heart towards me, and also have fate with me.
From now on, you will be my domains little housekeeper who helps me look after and protect the domain!”
Zhang Hans words had decided that this dog would become very capable in the future.
“Never thought that Pure-Yang Water would be used by you this little fellow first.” Zhang Han shook his head, then stretched out his hand and touched the Thunder-Yang Tree.
Suddenly, Zhang Han expression paused for a moment, followed by him laughing out involuntarily, “Your luck sure is good!”
After a day had passed, Thunder-Yang Tree would soon enter into silent, which meant that it would not be able to release out energy anymore.
However,soon means that Thunder-Yang Tree still had not yet entered into silent yet!
“Housekeeper…seems like I will have to use up some capital.”
Zhang Han lightly took in a breath, then pressed both his hands onto the Thunder-Yang Tree.
Spiritual strength continuously gathered within Thunder-Yang Tree.
Suddenly, a strand of white crystal water droplets floated out from Thunder-Yang Tree.
The water droplets were like a string of necklace, floating towards the forehead of the Chinese rural dog.
When the water droplets reached the dogs forehead, the water droplets turned into dots of starlight as it entered into the dogs forehead.
