“There’s the Spring of Regeneration…” Isaac pointed to a location shrouded by mist not far away from them. Jared stared at the Spring of Regeneration in front of him, noticing that the spiritual energy in the area was superior to most other places. However, multiple guards suddenly jumped out from the sides, blocking his way just as he was about to step forward.
“I brought him here. Let him in…” Isaac instructed. The guards immediately greeted Isaac with a bow before moving to the side. As for Jared, he walked over to the Spring of Regeneration with his eyes glued on the clear spring water. Fishes were swimming freely in it.
Then, he put his hands in the Spring of Regeneration, trying to determine why the spring was so raved about. To his surprise, Jared didn’t notice any difference after feeling the water. A thought flashed across his mind.
Yes, the spiritual energy is much more potent here, but besides that, the Spring of Regeneration seems to be a typical spring to me! Jared watched the Spring of Regeneration flow as he wondered whether the legend and tales about this place were all lies.
It looks so ordinary and unassuming. Are they sure this spring water can mend broken bones? Isaac noticed Jared’s skepticism and chuckled. “Does it seem like typical spring water to you?
Jared nodded without speaking. Isaac flashed him a smile. He reached out and grabbed at something mid-air. Just then, a fish flew into his hand as it struggled endlessly. Next, Isaac fiercely bit a huge chunk of the fish’s body off.
His action shocked Jared, who stared at Isaac in disbelief. Oh my god! He’s eating raw fish meat in such a cruel way. How is he an alchemist that is keen on saving others’ lives?
On the other hand, Matthew was unperturbed. by what he saw as he looked at Jared with a faint smile. Isaac threw the fish back into the spring water. Even though the fish had lost a big chunk of its flesh, it swam inside the water without showing any signs of weakness.
Jared was baffled, for he had no idea what Isaac was trying to show him. Is this his way of showing me his cruelty? Matthew reminded Jared then, “Jared, take a look at the fish.”
Jared shifted his attention to the wounded fish. At a speed visible to the naked eye, the fish’s missing flesh healed while it swam around. Around ten minutes later, the fish looked fine, returning to its original unhurt state.
The sight before him made Jared gape in amazement. “Well? Do you believe in the Spring of Regeneration now?” Isaac stated disdainfully as he took in the obvious disbelief on Jared’s face.
Jared didn’t respond to Isaac’s remark. Instead, he put his hand into the spring water again as he closed his eyes and slowed his breathing. The man focused all his mental energy on the water body, and his spiritual sense transformed into a pool of spring water, flowing along with the Spring of Regeneration..
Soon, he scrunched up his eyebrows as he opened his eyes. Noticing the look on Jared’s face, Matthew questioned, “Is something wrong, Jared?”
“Oh, no…” Jared smiled, shaking his head. Then, he asked, “Mr. Campbell, do you know where this spring water came from and where it’s flowing toward?”
Matthew shook his head. He explained, “The spring water flows out of the base of Kazillion Mountains. As for where it’s headed, I can’t answer that question because I don’t know. The spring water vanishes after coming in contact with Messy Rock Hill up ahead. Nobody knows where it goes. That’s not to say nobody was curious, though. Some went to Messy Rock Hill to investigate, but no one got an actual answer. Besides, those who went to Messy Rock Hill returned with a side effect. Their cultivation reached a stagnant stage, and no matter what they did, they couldn’t break through it. In the end, no one wanted to know where the Spring of Regeneration was flowing to anymore.”
Meanwhile, Jared’s curiosity was piqued by the mention of Messy Rock Hill.
