Bing was quite excited.
The familiar scenery, led him to recall his youth.
There was a gigantic red cliff, the cliff was roughly twenty metres high, as red as rust, texture was exceptionally solid, like a lone warrior, silently standing tall in the wilderness.
Floating to the side of the huge rock, Bing lightly touched the red cliff, with a myriad of thoughts, he muttered: “You’re still the same as last time…”
Tang Tian listened blankly, but he did not say a word.
Bing struggled to exit his thoughts, restored his tranquil state and said: “The Martial Spirit Chamber definitely has troubling places, so you have to regularly make reference objects that will act to identify places. This red stone, we used to call it the Red Sentinel. If we continue walking forward, we will enter the Hunting Spirit Region, luckily this place does not differ much from my past.”
Following Bing forward, Tang Tian suddenly felt the surroundings quickly become very cold. In the midst of the wilderness, a stone forest appeared before Tang Tian. There were weird stone figurines, all erected upwards, the faces were deathly pale, and a sinister feel to the forest caused it to be extremely terrifying.
“Careful.” Bing reminded Tang Tian.
Tang Tian did not say anything, and summoned his Blue Peacock and Fornax Fire, ready for battle. He knew his power was still weak, so he had to raise his awareness to a hundred and twenty percent.
Suddenly, Tang Tian sensed something, and he quickly punched out to his side.
His fist hit something soft, a grey shadow banged onto the opposite stone wall, and shot back towards him.
The small thing was not injured, and was very lively, and Tang Tian finally saw that it was a fist sized small Spirit General. Tang Tian was stunned, he had never seen such a small Spirit General before, and although it was very small, it had a neat armor on, and looked realistic.
The small Spirit General squeaked once, and suddenly shot towards Tang Tian. It used the small bow in its hands to propel itself high up, and smashed towards Tang Tian.
Tang Tian quivered, immediately reacting against it, against the incoming small Spirit General, he threw out a punch!
This punch definitely smashed onto it, the small Spirit General flew back at an even faster speed, rooting deep into a rock, forming a “大” word in the rock.
(TN: It looks like a human figure)
“What… what is that thing?” Tang Tian swallowed saliva, and asked with much difficulty.
“Oh, a Sprout Spirit General.” Bing said casually: “This place is filled with them, they are basically the lowest level of Spirit Generals that evolved. These ancient broken Martial Spirit pieces, after a long time, will transform into Spirit Generals. Sprout Spirit Generals are the weakest, they are all around the second or third level around there. But you still have to be careful, they are hard to destroy.”
Just as Bing finished talking, Bang, the Sprout Spirit General dropped out from the stone, ‘wow’d once, and raised the bow and arrow in its hands, shua shua shua! A few arrows were shot towards Tang Tian.
Tang Tian laughed and cried, as the Sprout Spirit General shot out arrows like small toothpicks, but he still raised his fist, and threw a punch over.
The toothpick sized grey arrows immediately crumbled.
The Sprout Spirit General was angry, as it screeched out in anger, jumped high up and raised its small bow again, split in two and smashed towards Tang Tian.
It was yet again smashed in mid air.
It got drilled into another stone.
“Ignore it, all these small things are not threatening, but are yet difficult to destroy. Oh, you can also swallow it, it is very effective.” Bing said.
Tang Tian thought for awhile, and placed the small figure into his mouth, it’s small hands and legs struggling inside his mouth, immediately a burst of evil chill was burst off, he shook his head: “Just forget about it!”
“Then let’s go!” Bing took the lead and moved.
Tang Tian was about to take another step, as his senses warned him yet again, and he instantly turned behind and threw a punch!
The punch hit something!
The Sprout Spirit General was once again thrown into the air.
Tang Tian felt a headache, it was as Uncle Bing had said, this toy was not done yet! Without saying a thing, he started running, attempting to break away from this difficult brat.
Just as he starting running two steps, from the corner of his eyes, he glanced at the rock to the side, a small figure was pursuing closely behind. The Sprout Spirit General was like a bullet round, from one stone dashing to the next at an extremely fast speed. It noticed that Tang Tian was watching it, and it raised the bow in its hands, aiming at Tang Tian fiercely.
Tang Tian revealed his wrist, and a ray of dark light shot out, flying in the sky.
Small Qian Kun Spring Loaded Arrow!
Right on target!
Tang Tian was overjoyed at the unexpected power, he was merely testing out the power of the spring loaded arrow, such a rough tree trunk, was penetrated through completely, the annoying thing had nowhere else to run!
But what happened next shocked Tang Tian.
The Sprout Spirit General was actually flipped up by the spring loaded arrow.
In the next moment, an angry squeal was heard, like a rabid dog wildly running from behind the stone, coming closer. As the Sprout Spirit General once again appeared on the rock, its face was completely red from holding back its anger, as it used the bow and arrow with all its might, adopting a posture like it was going to rush forward.
Tang Tian was completely dumbfounded, shouldn’t it penetrate? Why did it get flipped?
And please, can you not be more stubborn than me…
“If you wish to have a pet, you can throw a spirit nucleus to it.” Bing shot a glance and said.
Spirit nucleus! Tang Tian who was already unable to put up with the annoyance any longer, without saying a word threw a Green Sandalwood Ape spirit nucleus out.
The Sprout Spirit General’s expression froze, its small nose moved up and down twice, and the initially red face of anger immediately dissipated, shua shua shua a few times, and it rushed to the spirit nucleus, its eyes squinting into a line, it placed its bow and arrow to the back, and carried the spirit nucleus with both hands.
Tang Tian exhaled a breath.
If it were a normal day, to waste a spirit nucleus would cause him to feel heartache, but being chased by this little thing had caused Tang Tian to feel helpless, and to use a spirit nucleus to resolve the issue, left him being able to breath again.
Literally money will make the Devil turn millstones, these Sprout Spirit Generals can really eat a lot!
Tang Tian picked up his frame of mind, lifted his legs and proceeded to move forward.
Pu, pu, pu sounds were heard.
Tang Tian stretched his head to look, only to see the Sprout Spirit General hugging on to the spirit nucleus, and rushing to follow Tang Tian. Tang Tian withdrew, shooing it with both hands: “I have given you the spirit nucleus already, what more do you want from following me?”
“Squeak, squeak, squeak, squeak!”
The Sprout Spirit General let go of the spirit nucleus in its hands, with incomparable emotions on its face, both of its hands continuously gestured.
“Oh, he says he recognizes you as his owner.” Bing who was at the side, seemingly familiar, calmly translated for Tang Tian.
“Recognize me as the owner?” Tang Tian looked distracted, his fingers pointing to his nose.
“En, Sprout Spirit Generals are the easiest to bribe, once you throw a spirit nucleus to them, means they have been bought. To act as pets are quite good, they are really clever.” Bing was clearly familiar with them.
Tang Tian shook his head like a rattle drum: “Forget about it, I already have a problem taking care of myself, and you still want me to have a pet! I don’t want it!”
The Sprout Spirit General pouted, with teardrops like little beads of pearls, drip, drip, drip dripping down. It cried, and at the same time fumingly used its small hands to wipe tears away.
Tang Tian opened his mouth wide, he was stumped.
“Oh, as long as you accept this Sprout Spirit General, the other small generals will not disturb you.” Bing said.
Tang Tian immediately reacted, his mind suddenly imagining countless Sprout Spirit Generals rushing forth to him and quivered, he immediately changed his mind: “Then ok, you can just follow me!”
The Sprout Spirit General’s tears were gone, and it instantly became happy, it grovelled while carrying the spirit nucleus, and suddenly rushed up like a bullet forming an arc ray, landing on Tang Tian’s shoulders.
Tang Tian was slightly uncomfortable, he had never reared a pet before.
“Give him a name.” Bing said.
Tang Tian frowned and thought for awhile: “Let’s call him Yaya.”
Bing’s tone was immediately filled with ridicule: “In the army of the past, those that called them Yaya, even if there wasn’t a thousand, there was at least eight hundred.”
Tang Tian rolled his eyes: “But there is only one now.”
Bing stopped talking.
Tang Tian suddenly realised, what he just said was not appropriate and immediately apologized: “Uncle Bing, I’m sorry.”
“What is there to be sorry about?” Uncle Bing’s tone was flat as usual: “No matter how strong an army is, it will eventually disappear. What thing in this world can last forever? This is the natural laws, but as long as we leave our mark in this era, that is enough.”
Tang Tian was silent.
Very quickly, they passed through the stone forest, and arrived in front of ruins.
Gazing at the ruins for a short moment, Bing said: “Go in.”
Far away behind a piece of rock, suddenly appeared a few people.
“As expected, they have entered the ruins!” One of them, who was a tall and skinny male said, his head was wrapped in a purple scarf, with a malicious expression.
“Boss really has incredible foresight!”
“Boss can even predict this kind of thing, you’re too powerful!”
The others in the group all had faces of surprise, they did not think that the young man would really enter the ruins.
The purple scarfed leader’s face did not seem the least bit pleased: “All of you be more alert, that kid’s Spirit General is very powerful. The Panda Bandit Group fell under his hands, we must not suffer the same setback!”
“Don’t worry boss! The Panda Bandit Group was just three idiots, how can they compare to us!” A muscular man patted his chest and said.
The purple scarfed leader laughed coldly: “You say they are idiots, then you guys are the same as them.”
Embarrassment was spread across the muscular man’s face.
The purple scarfed leader’s face and expression fluctuated indefinitely. Since a long time ago, the ruins were considered mysterious, many people had ventured in to explore, but only very few came out alive. The purple scarfed leader accidentally found out that the ruins used to be a military base for the Southern Cross Army. What made him palpitate more with eagerness was that inside the military base, was a location of military weapons warehouse.
Southern Cross Army’s military weapons warehouse!
This discovery made him so excited that his whole body went numb, if this news was spread out, it would have attracted a reign of terror. Unless it was his own underlings, partners, he did not reveal and leak any of this information.
That era of the Three Big Armies which Southern Cross Army was a part of, they were most well known for their unmatchable bronze mechanics. Southern Cross Army was publicly known as the pinnacle and pioneers of the machinery age, but the machinery was later known as the Scorpio Dynasty’s machinery, in fact went on a decline.
Military weapons warehouse!
Even if they fished up just a single piece, it could be considered that they struck gold.
What he did not realise was, what he had just discovered, was that someone was seen riding on a Bronze Mechanical Ostrich running wildly!
Bronze Mechanical Ostrich, was also a Southern Cross Army symbol.
He immediately guessed that, that person must have definitely gotten it out from the same ruins!
This brat most definitely would not expect that, the mantis stalks the cicada, but the eurasian siskin is behind them!
His face expressed a cold laugh.
