Chapter 795: Poor!
Originally, Su Yizhi did not wish to tell Ling Chuxi about this matter because he didn’t want her to worry, but no matter what, Ling Chuxi was the sect master of the Golden Pill Sect, so she had to know.
“So fast?” Ling Chuxi asked in surprise. She knew about the Su family’s property. The wealth amassed by their countless generations was enough to rival a country, but she never thought that it had only taken a couple of days of rebuilding the sect to use up half of it. Wasn’t the price of things in this realm a little too expensive?
“Although our gold notes are usable in the Sacred Realm of Sects, the best currency is still crystals. This realm has a lot of treasures, but only crystals can be used to buy them. Without crystals, whatever amount of silver or gold you have is useless.
“However, crystals aren’t so easily obtained. Even the lowest grade white crystal is worth thousands of white silver. The higher grades are even more expensive. As for the purple Jade Crystal, Ink Jade Crystal and the like, those are priceless. Even money can’t buy them,” Su Yizhi explained.
Only now did Ling Chuxi understand. Even a piece of the lowest grade white crystal was a thousand taels of white silver. It was easy to imagine the cost of other higher grade crystals.
“Then where do the other sects get so much money from?” Ling Chuxi asked curiously.
“Sects usually have some businesses and can more or less earn some crystals through that. For the great sects like the Celestial Sect, besides having businesses under their sect, they also have their own crystal mine veins. Otherwise, they could not have grown into a large-scale sect,” Su Yizhi answered.
“Then we also need to think of a way,” Ling Chuxi murmured contemplatively. If a sect wanted to do well in the long run, it needed money.
Why was it that although these sects’ disciples were young, their cultivation far surpassed the strength of people in the various countries, sometimes even more than those old cultivators? Was it really because each of them had outstanding innate talent? Of course not!
It was because of the abundance of spiritual qi in the Sacred Realm of Sects, and also because of the cultivation methods that the sects used, which had been tempered by thousands of years of experience and were far stronger than the world’s cultivation methods. However, the most important point was that these young disciples had been bathed in various spiritual herbs that could cleanse their meridians and improve their constitution. Thus, when they cultivated, it was only natural that they were much faster than other people.
If the Golden Pill Sect wanted to have a good standing in the Sacred Realm of Sects, they needed to nurture their young disciples. However, those spiritual herbs and special liquids all needed money. No matter how rich the Su family was, digging into their family reserves without bringing in new income was not rational.
Furthermore, the Golden Pill Sect had just been rebuilt, so their overall cultivation was still weak. It would be good if they could hire experts to be the sect’s special guests and protect it during critical times. It was a method used by some small sects, but it also required money. Even if the Su family used all their wealth in exchange for crystals, how many experts could they hire, and how many days would that last?
After coming to the Golden Pill Sect, Ling Chuxi had fallen in love with its beautiful, ethereal scenery, and after interacting with the Su family’s disciples for so long, she had become attached to them. She naturally had hoped for the Golden Pill Sect to be able to stand firmly on its own and grow stronger, but when it came to money, she was helpless. With the money she had won in the past from various gambling houses, she could be considered rich in the countries, but compared to the Su family, it wasn’t enough.
Hence, when the word ‘money’ was mentioned, Ling Chuxi felt troubled. She truly never thought that there would be a time when she would be bothered by finances.
