Chapter 111: Enter and Die?
“Say, are you sure it’s this place?” As long as one had enough spiritual stones to activate the transportation array, only a short time would be required to travel from Spirit Peak City to Ashbone Mount. The time required for Wei Suo and Han Weiwei to arrive here, was even shorter than walking from his Heaven Grade residence to the west of Spirit Peak City. However, upon reaching the vicinity that Han Weiwei suffered the assaults from the Twin-headed Canine, they became slightly dumbstruck.
There were two groups of people quarrelling intensively.
1 against 3. On one side was a burly chap with thick eyebrows and big eyes, he was wearing an embroidered dress. On the other side was a short, crossed eye cultivator dressed in a maroon robe, a roly-poly looking cultivator clad in a shabby grey robe, and a square faced cultivator; tall with muscles bulging, wearing a chain vest……
Straightforwardly saying, the muscular square faced cultivator’s muscles were really bloody thick. His first impression was that of all brawns without brains.
It was the cross-eyed cultivator that was currently arguing frenziedly with the opposing. The square faced cultivator occasionally giggled at the crossed-eye cultivator.
Clearly wearing a robe made from a low grade level 4, Firefox, the cross-eyed cultivator raged out, “You can’t even recite the password ‘unenterable pond, unenterable cave’, then naturally I can’t let you in.”
The thick brows brute stubbornly lashed back. “Based on what can’t I enter? You think you’re a Heaven’s First Sect elder? Even if you are from the Heaven’s First Sect, this place isn’t Spirit Peak City. Based on what are you denying me?”
“How can such a person be hopelessly muddled. I’ve already told you there are powerful demonic beasts inside, if you enter it is simply courting death. Furthermore, based on the fact that our cultivations aren’t beneath yours, and we even have a Heavenly Circuit stage cultivator supervising inside, even if you want to force your way in, it would be impossible…..” The cross-eyed cultivator was on fire, his darks seemed to be squeezed into a pile. “You either detour now, or tell us the password. I recite it again, ‘unenterable pond’, what is the next line!?”
The thick brows brute frowned, about to implode within. But after observing the 3 cultivators, he hesitated for a long while before helplessly muttering. “Fine, the next line of the password should be ‘enter and die’ right?”
Wei Suo and Han Weiwei were already slightly speechless, but after hearing the exchange of words between the cross-eyed cultivator and the thick brows brute, they both wanted to plant their heads into the floor…..
“Who are you guys?” At this moment, the cross-eyed cultivator who had the sharpest eyes realized Wei Suo and Han Weiwei’s figures appearing from the mountain forest.
“Us?” Wei Suo had already used his aura determining technique to determine that the 4 ahead were all Divine Sea stage level 5 cultivators. Although their cultivation base was pretty good, it was nothing to the current Wei Suo. Hence, Wei Suo wasn’t very worried but only silently laughed and replied, “We too wish to enter into the mountain valley.”
“Not possible, this valley is our territory. If you wish to enter, you must be one of us by stating the password.” The cross-eyed cultivator rejected.
Wei Suo tacitly laughed and continued, “Sure, the password is ‘Enterable pond, enterable cave’ right?”
“So you’re one of us?” The cross-eyed cultivator was taken aback…….
“Heavenly Circuit stage cultivator!”
When the gap between them closed up, the thick brows brute scanned Wei Suo. In a flash, his expression slightly changed.
“Heavenly Circuit stage cultivator?!” Not only the thick brows brute, even the crossed-eye cultivator and the other 2 had a change of expression.
“Senior!” After a momentary shock, the crossed-eye cultivator immediately changed his greeting but he instantly became worried. “Since senior is a Heavenly Circuit stage cultivator, then junior cannot allow senior in.”
Wei Suo and Han Weiwei were intrigued, they couldn’t help asking, “Why is this so?”
“Because senior is definitely not one of ours, we only have one Heavenly Circuit stage cultivator, and that person is already inside……” The cross-eyed cultivator smiled bitterly. “We have discovered a high level demonic beast inside, and are currently searching for them. If Senior is to enter and coincidentally encounter that demonic beast, and steal it; then this trip would’ve been wasted. Since we rushed here from Falling Moon City, the array transportation fee was considerably huge.”
“A Falling Moon City cultivator?” Wei Suo was slightly shocked, he never expected these people weren’t from Spirit Peak City. Instead, they were like Ye Xiao Zheng and Ye Gu Wei, cultivators from Falling Moon City.
“Why, just based on you discovering traces of a demonic beast first, you think you can just colonize this valley and not let others enter?” The thick brows brute spoke in place of Wei Suo.
The cross-eyed cultivator replied. “According to the regulations, since we found it first, it’s naturally ours. But if you can guarantee you are just passing through, then I can report on your behalf, and allow you to pass…..”
The thick brows cultivator pursed his lips. In the Heavenly Profound Continent, although most areas do have a regulation – if a party slays a demonic beast first, then other cultivators cannot snatch it away. However, in actual fact, the wild belonged to the laws of the jungle, whoever had bigger fists or larger backing, would call the shots. Most people wouldn’t even adhere to that regulation, putting self interests first.
“You found it first?” Wei Suo didn’t want to dispute, he only laughed. “The demonic beast you’re referring to are the two Twin-headed Canines, no? We already discovered it a month ago, and were just thinking of bringing them back today.”
“WHAT!” The cross-eyed cultivator’s face instantly changed. It was obvious the demonic beast he was referring to was indeed that Twin-headed Canine. “This matter, junior isn’t able to determine, I ask for senior to wait a moment.” After speaking respectfully, the cross-eyed cultivator fished out a talismanic paper. Blowing it, a fiery arrow was released, catapulting towards the sky.
After a brief pause, a handsome and bright youthly cultivator in white robes, flew over.
“Heavenly Circuit stage cultivator!” Observing him, Wei Suo felt his heart shudder a little, because this guy had the same cultivation as him. However, it seemed like he had been in the Heavenly Circuit stage level 1 for a long while already. Moreover, his cultivation was a high grade Profound level cultivation technique. The icy cold aura emitting from his white robe was heavy, appearing like it was at least a half-spirit class. A cultivator like him, unless necessary, wasn’t one that Wei Suo wanted to be implicated with.
Upon witnessing Wei Suo and Han Weiwei, the youth cultivator who was floating in midair with his flying skill technique, leaked out a suspicious gaze. After landing in front of the cross-eyed cultivator, he cusped his hand to Wei Suo. “I am Feng Zhiyou, how may I address you…..”
“Surnamed Li.” Wei Suo shot a look at Han Weiwei. Since he had already decided to disguise as Li Honglin, then before dealing with him, he would allow him to bear every heinous crime Wei Suo committed.
“I’m surnamed Wei.” But what caused Wei Suo to almost faint, was the 3 words Han Weiwei offered with a slight sneer.
“I’m surnamed Zhu,” Wei Suo had completely no relations to that thick brows cultivator, yet he hesitated a moment before reporting his surname.
“So it’s brother Li.” At this moment, the cross-eyed cultivator had already reported clearly to Feng Zhiyou. Feng Zhiyou nodded as he calmly continued, “Since brother Li knew about the Twin-headed Canine, naturally brother Li had already discovered it beforehand. How about we join hands to slay those two Twin-headed Canines? Besides, by joining forces, it would be safer…..”
Han Weiwei glanced at Wei Suo. Wei Suo whispered several words before nodding. Besides, he already knew of their intentions, since such a large group had travelled from Falling Moon City to here, they surely wouldn’t give up on the Twin-headed Canines. A coordinated hunting was their best choice now.
“Then what will the arrangements be once we slay the two Twin-headed Canines?” Without waiting for Wei Suo to speak, Han Weiwei, her mind filled with spiritual stones, spoke up.
“This….” Feng Zhiyou turned solemn for a moment. “How about we distribute according to headcount?”
“How many of you are there?” Han Weiwei asked.
“Including me, we have nine.” Feng Zhiyou chirped.
“No way.” Han Weiwei shook her head and pouted. “Then wouldn’t that be equivalent to us only getting two paws…..”
Wei Suo stared at Han Weiwei with praise. He couldn’t not admit that this beauty had times of brilliance, indeed worthy of coming from the Precious Treasure pavilion; a profiteering potential.
“Then how do you think we should distribute?” Feng Zhiyou stroked his brows gently.
“At least 50/50.” Han Weiwei mercilessly replied. “If not just based on headcount, I can anytime order a group of people from Spirit Peak City. At that time, we would have at least 30 – 40 people, you won’t even get two paws.”
“That’s right!” Thick brows cultivator Zhu raised his chest and chimed in. After speaking, he gently offered Wei Suo. “Senior, count me in. I, Haodai, can help you fill the slots. What I want isn’t much, I’ll do it for only 70 – 80 low grade spiritual stones.”
“70!” Without changing his expression, Wei Suo answered cultivator Zhu.
“Good, deal!” The thick brow brute smiled heartily.
The cross-eyed cultivator and the muscular cultivator had a blank face. Obviously that thick brow brute wasn’t with Wei Suo, why did they suddenly turn familiar and become brothers?
“50 percent?” Feng Zhiyou frowned. His words carried a chill as he spoke, “As long as you can demonstrate your strength, that is possible. For 50 percent, you must at least have two half-spirit class offensive artifacts and defensive artifacts.”
“That’s fine.” Wei Suo emotionlessly nodded towards Han Weiwei. Without uttering more rubbish, Han Weiwei released two magic shields. One was the Cloudbone shield that Wei Suo had earlier, and the other, Devouring Spirit shield. Wei Suo’s hand twitched, producing that yellow tiny hatchet and silver print he obtained from Wen Daoge. These two objects were both half-spirit artifacts, and they didn’t belong to the strongest defensive or offensive artifacts they had on hand. Letting others see wasn’t much.
“Good!” Then its 50/50.” Observing that Wei Suo and Han Weiwei very casually produced those items, Feng Zhiyou slightly frowned but he agreed without hesitation.
“Aowu~~~” At this moment, within the depths of the valley, a howl drifted over. It was more deafening and rough than a wolf’s howl.
Flutter flutter flutter! Many birds and even certain low level flying demonic beasts inside the forest were startled to flight.
“Twin-headed Canine!” Han Weiwei’s face sank slightly.
“Go!” Feng Zhiyou had a mixed expression, as he flew towards the source of that howl.
