Running for a while inside the forest, Luke assessed his surroundings carefully to search for any demonic beasts. Fifteen minutes later, Luke encountered a boulder in the middle of the forest while there were corpses of many animals right beside the boulder. Approaching the place, Luke held his chin in contemplation as he recalled a demonic beast with a similar habit he saw right now. Shortly, a shadow of a being moved by itself inside of the tree's shadows. As it got closer to Luke, a pair of eyes glowed in an amber color as it made a smile on its face. On the next moment, the being leaped out from the shadows while it opened its jaw and readied its claws. Jumping to the side as if Luke had expected the sudden ambush, Luke could see the being's form was a panther that was sneaking behind his back and trying to attack him. Spinning his body after his feet had landed on the ground, Luke sent a roundhouse kick towards the panther's head. Growling in displeasure after it had found its
*Roaarr!* *Roaarr!*Series of roars could be heard while eight more dog-like lion beasts leaped out of the bushes and pointed their gaze towards Luke. Then, they started to encircle Luke and the first beast which called for help began to growl in confidence while it bared its fangs.
Somewhere, five days later in a forest filled with blackened mist. Any ordinary human without strong Lingqi would have their body poisoned and their mind befuddled with hallucinations. This place was located right under the mountain called the Snake's Fang. The first layer of entrance to the Three Headed Crimson Serpent sect. Traversing this forest alone was a young man wearing traveler 's clothes and a hay backpack on his back. The young man calmly walked in the forest while his gaze wandered around the area. His gesture sensed to be vigilant, with his eyes observing if there was any disturbance around him. After he had walked for twenty minutes, he finally had reached the foot of the mountain. Covering his body behind a nearby tree to hide, he took a look at the settlement that had resided in this ominous region as if it was nothing. It was a village, but the village was unusually bigger than the usual village with a tower made of stone that could reach thirty floors high and was e
"Next!" Shouting the same phrase loudly for the past ten hours, the guard had a bored expression on his face while he and his colleagues recorded the influx of newcomers to Xiutia'a village. At times, the guards would have been surprised by the guests that came as there were some famous figures in ranks of the wandering cultivators. However, most of the time, it usually was those kids that were still in the beginning phase to the cultivation journey that had been sent by their respective schools, or unknown, wandering cultivators that tried to leech unto some big sect's resources to raise their cultivation. "Next!" Finally, the guards would inspect the last person on the row and their shift would come to an end for today. Soon their gaze landed into a young man that wore shabby clothes that have holes in some parts, along without any single weapon on his body and if one sniffed carefully, they would smell a faint, unique scent coming out of the young man's body. Frowning their eye
*Knock* *Knock* "I'm coming!" Walking to the door of his room, Luke takes a double look at his appearance to search for anything that he has forgotten. Seeing that he was ready for the day, Luke nodded slightly and put up his backpack, while opening the door. In front of the door, there was a young woman with yellow clothes and a sword on her back. Noticing that Luke had finally showed up, she giggled and said, "Hey, sleepy head. Come down, we are waiting for you." Smiling, Luke nodded his head while following the woman's lead towards downstairs. After the woman, Luke and her companion talk together last night, they have introduced themselves as two disciples of the same school that was recruited by a senior in the Three Headed Serpent sect. Although they didn't want to tell more about this senior or how they met with him, they shifted the conversation as asking Luke's reason as to why he wanted to join the sect. Giving out an excuse just to only raise his cultivation, Luk
"Hyaak!"Shouting out loud, a middle aged man wearing armor threw his fist to the dark boulder in front of him. Leaving a 4cm fist mark on the boulder, a young man wearing a crimson robe on the side only briefly glanced at the result and said curtly, "Pass. Next!"Similar occurrence was happening in all fifteen lines in the public square. They
Right after the signal to start the battle had sounded, people began to pull out their own weapons and went into a full frontal battle of groups. Moreover, the bigger groups started to assault those whose group was much smaller than them, including Luke's group.Frowning his eyebrows, Luke saw four people, with two of them holding a mace and the other two wielding swords, had decided to charge at him at the same time. Trying to say it as softly as possible, Luke chanted acceleration magic while guiding his magic power unto his legs.
Two days later. Luke stood one the deck area of a gigantic ship. Looking at the floor below him, Luke was trying to imagine how much it would cost if this ship was made of real jade material. "It is made of jade." Surprised at the unexpected familiar voice beside him, Luke faced the smiling Han Tue who had approached him from his back. Pointing his index finger to the ship, Han Tue continued, "Not only is it made of jade, but this one is a real flying artifact. It cost a huge fortune to buy it, let alone for a customized version." "How do you know what I think? Do you have the technique to read someone's mind?" Luke asked Han Tue who was chuckling after he had heard Luke's words. "Your expression says it all, you know. I don't need to be a fortune teller to read you." Answered Han Tue nonchalantly. After knowing each other more in the past few days, the three of them were getting a little closer as they started to joke around with each other. Following the event after the asses
