Absolute Great Teacher - Chapter 955
“Oh, right. Teacher, how did you do it?”
Qin Yaoguang and the others were very interested.
“Me? It was just good luck. My heart was dug away, but I didn’t die even after a minute had passed. This was clearly not normal so I must be in an illusion.”
Sun Mo explained.
However, this wasn’t the real answer.
Why was this darkness species named the ‘Homeward-Bound Ginseng’?
Because as the name implied, it had the ability to allow one to see three types of dreams: the past, the present, and the future.
In the encyclopedia Sun Mo obtained, the recorded information was precisely this.
This ginseng could allow the consumer to have an additional life. This also meant that if one encountered an attack that they would surely die from, their injuries could instantly recover.
Ginsengs were originally wondrous medicines used to extend life. The older the ginseng was, the stronger its effects would be. There were even rumors saying that 1,000-year-old ginseng could transform into spirits.
The higher the level of a darkness secret species was, the stronger its self-preservation methods would be.
If the fragrance emitted by this ginseng was smelled by animals or humans, they would enter a beautiful dream and experience the best life ever, not willing to wake up.
As they immersed themselves in the dreamscape, they would have no idea that they had turned into nutrient sources for the plant.
When they smelled the fragrance, they would first enter the ‘present’ dream. If the illusion broke, they would experience the ‘past’ dream, and after the illusion broke again, they would enter the ‘future’ dream.
For Sun Mo, after he discovered that he didn’t die and knew that what he was facing was an illusion, he immediately experienced his past. The young and inexperienced love, as well as the yearning for the future was truly a memorable one.
Also, his blissful life in the future was so perfect, the story of a life-winner. Others would surely be unable to extricate themselves.
But Sun Mo was different.
His soul came from the modern era.
The effect from the Homeward-Bound Ginseng was simple. Its fragrance would enter the pores of the person’s body. The past, present, and future illusions would be crafted based on what the body had and wanted to experience.
Hence, a modern soul like Sun Mo was like an observer. Staring at his original body in the dreams, he naturally felt nothing for them.
If the dream was crafted in a way that allowed Sun Mo to have a huge villa in the modern world, many luxurious cars, a beautiful and virtuous wife, with plenty of hot mistresses and him becoming the headmaster or even the minister of education, Sun Mo definitely wouldn’t be able to wake up.
After all, Sun Mo was also a human and wanted to lead a successful modern life.
“In any case, we have to suppress our desires.”
Sun Mo casually made a statement and concluded it. Because these words weren’t from the bottom of his heart, Priceless Advice didn’t activate.
“Teacher, how should we dig this ginseng out? Would it run away?”
Xianyu Wei was worried.
In the Nine Provinces, people believed that ginseng could become spirits after living for a long time.
“I feel that this should already be a grandpa ginseng.”
Qin Yaoguang guessed.
“Can you not say something so disgusting?”
Sun Mo was speechless. (You say that it is a grandpa, so how can I eat it in the future?)
“Sun Mo, hurry and keep it!”
Murong Mingyue urged.
This was a good item, and there might be unexpected changes to the situation if they kept dragging things on.
“Don’t worry, it can’t run…”
Sun Mo grabbed a few plant tubes and exerted force to pull the ginseng out.
The moment the ginseng left the soil, it directly let out a baby-like cry.
Xianyu Wei jumped in fright. “Just like this?”
Sun Mo grew joyful.
Usually, there would be ferocious beasts that had awakened their intelligence guarding heavenly ingredients or earthly treasures. This ginseng was no exception. However, its defensive effect was too strong, and the surrounding ferocious beasts had all become its nutrients.
Lian Fangcao stared at this Homeward-Bound Ginseng that looked like a radish before turning her gaze back to Sun Mo, feeling impressed in her heart.
Was this the strength of intelligence?
The Homeward-Bound Ginseng had such a powerful effect, but Lian Fangcao didn’t covet it despite her having the capabilities to seize it given her strength.
“Ah, the ginseng whiskers!”
Xianyu Wei jumped into the pit and attentively checked the soil, wanting to dig out the remaining ginseng whiskers.
After the ginseng was plucked by Sun Mo, the others gradually started to wake up from their dreams.
“Boohoohoo, Mother, I don’t want to die!”
“Wife, I’m wrong. I will definitely treat you better in the future!”
“Beauty, don’t run. Come, let us play a kissing game.”
The last sentence was spoken by Yang Xuecai, and this caused Sun Mo to be somewhat taken aback. (I didn’t expect an old man like you to still be so playful.)
“Ah? Lu Wuyin is dead!”
Zhang Shihua saw Lu Wuyin’s body and was initially happy. But then he started frowning in disbelief. “What happened? Who killed him?”
Everyone’s gazes naturally turned toward Sun Mo. Besides, from the looks of things, the teachers and students from the Central Province Academy had woken up long ago.
“Teacher Sun, was that fellow killed by you?”
Yang Xuecai walked over to inspect the corpse.
After Sun Mo spoke, the ginseng that he had just placed inside his bag suddenly started crying.
“Eh? There’s a baby in such a place?”
Huang Chao was bewildered.
The distance was near and everyone’s hearing wasn’t bad either. Hence, they directly looked at Sun Mo.
“Do you have something in your bag?”
After Zhang Shihua asked, his eyes brightened. “Could that be the darkness secret treasure?”
Sun Mo smiled but didn’t reply.
Zhang Shihua felt like a cat was scratching his heart. However, he was embarrassed to ask further. But Yang Xuecai was ultimately a 6-star great teacher and his knowledge was very broad.
“Is it the Homeward-Bound Ginseng? Earlier, I experienced three dream states. In addition to the baby cries and the wooden sculptures in the surroundings, I am correct, right?”
Yang Xuecai looked at Sun Mo. When he saw Xianyu Wei digging the pit, he was even more certain.
“Teacher Sun, why don’t you take it out and allow everyone to broaden their horizons?” Yang Xuecai urged.
“Teacher, is this ginseng very impressive?’ Liang Weiyuan asked.
“This ginseng can give the consumer an additional life.”
After Yang Xuecai finished speaking, everyone gasped in surprise.
“Teacher Sun, why don’t you take it out and show it to everyone? Are you afraid we might snatch it?”
Yang Xuecai urged.
“Sorry. If you guys want to take a look, you can come to the Central Province Academy for a tour in the future.”
Sun Mo rejected.
The group of people were disappointed and suddenly felt very regretful. Why were they not students of the Central Province Academy?
“Teacher, can that ginseng really give the consumer an additional life?”
Wang Zhou was curious.
There was no need to conceal this. After all, after the competition ended, the Saint Gate still had to examine it.
With this item, the academy might be able to ascend to the ‘B’ grade this year.
“Teacher, I found a few ginseng whiskers!”
Xianyu Wei bragged.
When the others heard this, they came to their senses and immediately ran toward the large pit. Even a great teacher like Huang Chao was no exception.
There was no solution to it. It was something good.
Since they didn’t have a chance to get the ginseng, it wasn’t bad if they could taste a few whiskers as well.
Yang Xuecai looked at Sun Mo while hearing the baby-like crying sounds. After that, he stared at Xianyu Wei and clenched his fists.
“There’s only one chance. I cannot miss it.”
After Yang Xuecai decided, he spoke in a mocking tone and walked toward the pit. “Let me take a look at the ginseng whiskers.”
Sun Mo didn’t care for these whiskers.
Xianyu Wei replied. But just when she was heading back and passing by Yang Xuecai, her neck was grabbed by him..
