Chapter 103: What are you thinking of?
Within the pitch-dark forest, a red glimmer appeared like a firefly.
Upon going closer, one would realize that faint glimmer was actually a palm-sized paper crane. This paper crane was made with talisman paper with distinct symbols drawn over it.
Behind this flying red paper crane was a young cultivator wearing a cloud patterned light yellow robe. He had a sharp chin.
Suddenly, the red paper crane halted, expiring into a ball of flame dissipating as ashes.
The young cultivator stopped, turning to scour his environment in bewilderment.
“Withdraw your talisman crane. Say, I was wondering how did he notify you to retrieve the goods.”
“And here I was thinking who wants to kill me. So it’s you, Liu Anting.”
An arrogant snort, Wei Suo exposed his figure expressionlessly.
That young cultivator dressed in light yellow robe, was shockingly that Liu Anting that fell out with Wei Suo over Huang Yiyi.
“You didn’t die?” Seeing Wei Suo’s figure, Liu Anting couldn’t help gasping in disbelief.
“Sorry to disappoint, but indeed I’m not dead. A pity your trip was in vain.” Wei Suo smirked.
Liu Anting had a drastic change in expression, swinging his head around.
“Finding your assassin?” Wei Suo stared at Liu Anting. “He should’ve been a Heavenly Circuit Stage cultivator; abandoning him in the wilderness isn’t respectful, so I buried him. Somewhere beneath your foot now.”
“What!” Liu Anting jumped up as though jolted by lightning. He called out in disbelief, “Just a mere Divine Sea Stage cultivator like you, how did you manage to kill a Heavenly Circuit Stage cultivator!”
“I only said a few honest words, and you actually wanted to kill me.” Wei Suo sneered coldly. “You could’ve said it that time, but how many Heavenly Circuit Stage cultivators died by my hands already?”
Liu Anting was unable to keep calm, his face leaked out a sinister expression, forming a technique shield that was glowing white.
“Devouring Spirit Shield?”
Witnessing that same white glowing shield, Wei Suo’s eyes glimmered. Liu Anting actually had that identical Devouring Spirit Shield. Wei Suo completely welcomed more artifact shields, besides, his Profound Iron Shield had one side cut off by that red robed cultivator previously. His eyes glimmered with sparks as he murmured to him. “This artifact shield, I’m taking it.”
“You want my Devouring Spirit Shield? Then exchange it for your life!” Liu Anting boomed out, shifting his hands in position to execute an iron bowl looking artifact in his hand. As he revealed his hands, a path of green ray shot out from his brows, piercing directly into Wei Suo’s forehead without obstruction.
Wei Suo didn’t even have time to activate his bronze screen to block, nothing obstructed the ray.
“Taste my Despondent thrust!”
Seeing green ray piercing into Wei Suo, Liu Anting sneered maliciously.
However, his sneer was short lived. Wei Suo wiped off the cold sweat from his forehead, a bronze lightscreen immediately appeared around him. He looked completely fine.
“Liu Anting, I was too careless, you actually possess a psyche piercing technique.” After forming his bronze lightscreen, Wei Suo flicked his hands as he released a golden net, threatening to envelop Liu Anting.
(TN: Psyche is the mental awareness of a person)
“Impossible.” Yelling out, Liu Anting’s face changed drastically as he casted a divine light type defensive skill, releasing a white light canopy around him in defiance to Wei Suo’s Golden Serpent Net. “Just a cultivator weaker than me, it’s impossible that your psyche is stronger than mine. You shouldn’t be able to block my Despondent thrust.”
“Forgive me, I too am a Divine Sea Stage level 5. In fact, my cultivation is slightly stronger than yours.” The arrogant Wei Suo continued to unleash another Golden Serpent Net. “Watch out behind!”
Liu Anting thought Wei Suo was trying to trick him, thinking of activating his artifact against Wei Suo.
Simultaneously, a white icy dragon crashed against his divine light screen behind, its chilling frost utterly rendering Liu Anting motionless.
“Swish!” A dull golden spear impaled into Liu Anting’s chest, as blood gushed out but immediately turned frozen.
The cultivator trying to murder Wei Suo, was in turn exterminated mercilessly by Wei Suo.
“Idiot!” Wei Suo couldn’t resist the urge to swear at him while searching his corpse.
Apart from that iron bowl half-spirit artifact, Liu Anting didn’t possess any other artifacts on him. The spiritual stones pouch on him only had roughly a thousand pieces.
Of course there was still that valuable Devouring Spirit Shield. Thus, the profits from him was considered fine.
But with just this cultivation and artifacts and he thought of killing Wei Suo, he was overestimating himself.
However, this incident warned Wei Suo that he shouldn’t simply leave Spirit Peak City. Just one casual night, he was already a target for assassination. If not for Han Weiwei helping him, he may not have been able to deal with that red robed cultivator.
“What kind of feud did he have with you, why did he try to assassinate you?” Walking over, Han Weiwei curiously asked.
In one night alone, she had encountered two Twin-headed Canines, chased by 5 Wolf-bats to the mountain valley, partnered Wei Suo in killing off a Heavenly Circuit Stage cultivator and a Divine Sea Stage level 5 cultivator. To Han Weiwei, this was indeed quite nerve wrecking.
“It was because I didn’t save the female cultivator he liked.” Briefly explaining about the feud between him and Liu Anting, he only omitted the part about Huang Yiyi stripping naked.
“Pui! Pui! Pui!”
Han Weiwei was initially too reluctant to return the broadsword she found favour in; but after hearing that the broadsword was from that pervert Liu Sanbao, she immediately stuffed it back into Wei Suo’s hands, wanting to wash her hand immediately.
“Do you have a Treasure Receiving Pocket?” Seeing Han Weiwei’s forlorn expression, Wei Sup felt slightly better as he asked.
“What.” Han Weiwei replied. “I only have one, what do you want to store?”
“Store those 5 Wolfbats.” Han Weiwei glanced at Han Weiwei. “Today you have suffered quite a lot, besides, those 5 Wolfbats were lured out by you, so it belongs to you. If you didn’t coordinate with me, I wouldn’t have been able to kill those two. I already have several artifact weapons; I’ll be taking the Devouring Spirit Shield, you can keep the rest of the spiritual stones and that iron bowl.”
“No need, no need.” Hearing Wei Suo, Han Weiwei immediately waved away her small hands. “You can take everything, I don’t need them.”
Originally feeling rather heartache, Wei Suo still shook his head. “Give me everything? You are still not treating spiritual stones like spiritual stones.”
“What do you want? It’s because you rescued me causing yourself to be unable to chase up to that man. It isn’t right for me to accept everything.” Han Weiwei batted her eyes at Wei Suo. “That 15,000 spiritual stones I used to buy the Spirit Controlling Technique previously, was gained from pellets refined by myself. Also, my luck was pretty good on one time; some idiot wanted to scam me with some random herbs, but he was an ignorant fool. He didn’t recognize the herbs he thought to be worthless were actually Purpleheart grass that could be concocted into a fiery poison with the demonic pellet of a level 8 Humane Flaming Spider. Hence, I profited greatly earning 6-7000 spiritual stones. Do you know a Humane Flaming Spider’s demonic pellet cannot be concocted into pellet medicine, but only with a Purpleheart grass can it be transformed into a fiery poison. Those Purpleheart grass were auctioned off at Lingyun City.”
“Dog shit luck!” Seeing the conceited Han Weiwei, Wei Suo instantly judged her.
Lingyun City was one of the top 10 cities in the Heavenly Profound Continent, situated in the middle region. Even Wei Suo hadn’t visited there before.
“You also know concoction?” Wei Suo casually asked, as he cursed her extremely luck internally.
Han Weiwei blushed as she bashfully replied, “Not those high level ones, but certain energy recovery pellets are still manageable.”
Wei Suo couldn’t help sighing. “You already obtained so many spiritual stones through sheer luck, but spent it all because of those 2 Rock Tailed Wall Lizards, don’t you feel wasted?”
“Who asked you to strip your pants lecherously in front of me.” Han Weiwei slyly shook her head as she earnestly replied. “I won’t do it again, I’ll be a stingy one next time and strive hard to earn spiritual stones. I’ll definitely pay for my own things in the future.”
“Sure or not?” Wei Suo suspiciously glared at Han Weiwei.
“Of course I’m sure.” Han Weiwei nodded. “Fine, I’ll take two of the Wolfbats. Anyway, my Cyan Bamboo Sword is ruined, even though that iron bowl is exceedingly ugly, I’ll use it for now. Then I won’t decline that guy’s spiritual stones either, are you happy?”
“No way?!” Wei Suo wailed tragically. “You just said you didn’t want everything, now you want it all?”
Han Weiwei laughed delightedly. “Didn’t you lecture me so, I was just enlightened that’s all.”
“Fine fine fine.” Wei Suo tossed out the 2 Wolfbats and everything else on Liu Anting. He then asked Han weiwei abruptly, “You really wish to earn spiritual stones yourself, and not rely on your senior sister and the Precious Treasure Pavilion?”
“Of course I’m serious.” Han Weiwei nodded in resolution. “I’m determined.”
Wei Suo glanced deeply into Han Weiwei. “Then do you wish to earn a load of spiritual stones now?”
Han Weiwei was slightly taken aback, grabbing her collar tightly as she shook her head furiously. “What are you thinking of, if you dare to spurt rubbish I’ll retaliate.”
“What are you thinking about?” Wei Suo wanted to cry from the misunderstanding. “I just want you to follow me to deal with a pack of Scarlet beetles, you can probably earn some spiritual stones.”
“Go!” Han Weiwei blushed slightly as she nodded her head aggressively. “Of course I’ll go!”
