The other party naturally did not recognize the current Jiang Li.

Even if they recognized Jiang Li, the original owner, the Hidden Rock cultivator who had his personality modified would only think that he was an enemy.

The only solution was to change their personalities again.

“Sorry, Sir, our shopkeeper is very busy. I’m afraid he’s not free… The waiter will bring you to a private room upstairs. Please wait a moment, the shopkeeper will be here soon.”

The cultivator behind the counter spoke halfway. His expression stiffened for a moment before he suddenly changed his words.

That was because Jiang Li was holding a small coffin in his hand. At this moment, the coffin lid slid open a little.

The fifth clone, who could already control his body, immediately controlled this cultivator and made him understand that the person in front of him was his master.

The Nine Nether Wood in the graveyard had already fallen into his hands. The control of these Hidden Rock cultivators naturally returned to Jiang Li’s hands.

However, Jiang Li was no longer blindly trusting the parasitized puppets like before.

As a Spiritual Root of Heaven and Earth, the Nine Nether Wood had its own unique points. However, if he encountered other existences of the same level or with deeper roots, they might discover him and crack his control.

Not to mention anything else, the Mu family’s patriarch should also have the ability to destroy the seed of the Nine Nether Earth Fruit.

This time, he had suffered a huge loss. He had to be more careful in the future.

Jiang Li followed the shop assistant upstairs. The hidden cultivator behind the counter immediately ran back to inform Yan Hong.

He was not asked to wait, and nothing unexpected happened. In next to no time, a figure that was similarly wrapped in tree vines pushed open the door and walked in.

Wasn’t this chubby guy the missing Yan Hong?

Yan Hong looked at Jiang Li. From his appearance, he still did not understand the situation.

Jiang Li waved his hand. Through his fifth clone, he suppressed the intense soul modification effect of the spiritual root seed on Yan Hong, causing his mind to slowly recover and regain his rationality.

Yan Hong’s originally normal expression suddenly became stunned.

His eyes gradually filled with a layer of confusion, and his breathing became more and more rapid. Then, he suddenly woke up from his drowning state.

His entire body shook as he looked around in confusion.

“What… what’s going on… what happened!”

After eating the Nine Nether Earth Fruit, Yan Hong felt as if he had fallen asleep and had a dream that he could not wake up from for a long time.

He actually had blurry memories of everything that had happened during this period of time. If he recalled carefully, he could recall everything, but he always had a strange feeling as if he had never experienced this.

It was as if he had never been the one controlling his body. This feeling made him feel at a loss.

He had just woken up and his blood pressure had increased to at least 500.

Then, he could not stand still. His entire body immediately went limp on the ground, trembling uncontrollably.

He was terrified of everything he had experienced.

This was also the reason why Jiang Li had never wanted Yan Hong to consume the Nine Nether Earth Fruit to increase his cultivation.

Although the Nine Nether Earth Fruit was precious, the growth speed of this spiritual fruit was actually very fast.

As long as they absorbed the origin of demon beasts or cultivators, their lives and cultivation would quickly grow.

To Jiang Li who held the Nine Nether Wood Branch, it was really nothing.

Jiang Li ran deep into the mountains and caught a few demons before using the parasitism of his spiritual root to extract one. It would only take a day or two to produce one.

With Jiang Li’s relationship with Yan Hong, it actually did not take much effort to get him one or two pills to increase his cultivation.

However, the effect of changing one’s rationality was too terrifying.

Jiang Li was unwilling to let Yan Hong become his puppet.

However, due to a freak combination of factors, Yan Hong still ate the Nine Nether Earth Fruit and was controlled by others for such a long time.

Regarding this, Jiang Li could only light a few Concentration Incenses and stick them beside Yan Hong to make him feel better.

“Jiang… Jiang Li, is that you?”

After an hour passed, Yan Hong finally recovered from his shock, and then he raised his head to look at Jiang Li.

As expected of Jiang Li’s good friend. Even if his disguise was not removed, he still recognized him.

Of course, he was a mere Qi Refinement cultivator without any background or status. Only Jiang Li could enter the Ten Directions Region to save him.

Jiang Li nodded, switched back to his original appearance, and sat by his side.

“How is it? Do you feel better?”

How could the terrible feeling of his personality being tampered with be so easy to accept? Yan Hong only barely nodded and forced himself to maintain his rationality.

“Jiang Li, what exactly happened to me?”

Yan Hong held his chest tightly as he asked Jiang Li with a trembling voice. However, at the very least, his tongue was no longer tied up.

“What captured you was a tree demon. It’s the huge tree demon that appeared in the Mother River back then. It has the ability to influence people’s minds.”

“After the last battle, that tree demon lost half of its origin. This time, it’s probably back to take revenge on the Great Mountain Alliance.”

“They didn’t find me, but they found you instead.”

Jiang Li hesitated for a moment before telling him about the Nine Nether Wood.

However, the big secret that he knew was nothing in Yan Hong’s eyes.

There were many methods to control people in the cultivation world. Yan Hong was only a Qi Refinement cultivator previously. He could easily find a large number of people who could control him through unorthodox methods.

If he wanted to control a Qi Refinement cultivator, with Jiang Li’s current level, he would probably only need to draw a black talisman.

Although that kind of control was far inferior to the power of the spiritual root seed, it was not much different in Yan Hong’s perspective.

Therefore, even if Jiang Li told him this, he did not take it too seriously.

To him, how different were Nascent Soul, Soul Formation, Earth Immortal, and even True Gods? They were all existences that could slap him to death.

“I see. Jiang Li, how did you find me? Also, will I still remain like that in the future?”

Yan Hong did not probe deeper. In his eyes, there were too many such figures. He was not concerned about the origins of that tree demon.

What he cared about was whether he would return to that state in the future. If that was the case, he might as well let Jiang Li kill him…

“Don’t worry, I’ve already helped you take revenge. That guy is indeed powerful. However, since I can find your location, that tree demon has naturally fallen into my hands.”

“However, your suffering is not without benefits. Congratulations, Yan Hong. You’re now a proper Golden Core cultivator.”

The Nine Nether Wood in the graveyard had fed Yan Hong the Nine Nether Earth Fruit. The powerful effect of the Spiritual Root Fruit of Heaven and Earth had allowed him to obtain a cultivation level that others might not be able to reach in their lifetime in an extremely short period of time, causing him to have a lifespan of 500 years.

He only had an empty cultivation base and the spell techniques he knew were still at the Qi Refinement realm.

Moreover, his cultivation had not been polished, and his mind was still at its original level. He could only use about 20% of his cultivation.

His true combat strength was probably only slightly better than a Foundation Establishment cultivator.

If he wanted to polish his cultivation bit by bit, it would take at least a hundred years of hard work.

However, to Yan Hong, it was a huge opportunity. Moreover, with his Golden Core cultivation, although he did not have any combat strength, he could barely qualify as a businessman.

Without this cultivation, no one would take a fancy to him.

Now, he could help Jiang Li again.
