Chapter 128: Find Him, Kill Him!
Translator: Atlas Studios Editor: Atlas Studios
Night fell, and the moon resembled a hook.
Compared to other places, the nights in the Demon Beast Mountain Range seemed exceptionally cold.
From time to time, the roars of fiend beasts would ring out from afar, intimidating everyone.
However, at this moment, Stone Village was extremely lively. The enormous Kui Deer had long been broken down into countless pieces. Half of it was stored, and the other half was used to roast and cook soup, emitting an enticing fragrance.
Although this village was almost isolated from the world, its handling of food was not inferior to those chefs outside.
After all, living in such a place, besides having special requirements for food, there was nothing else to ask for.
Facing Stone Village’s enthusiastic hospitality, Qin Jue naturally didn’t want to eat and drink for nothing.. He took out spirit fruits and spirit wine from his storage ring and enjoyed them with everyone.
Most of these spirit fruits were only at level one or two, and the spirit wine was also only several dozen years old. He didn’t have to worry about their low cultivation and their inability to consume them.
“How powerful. He can actually create so many things out of thin air.”
“Yeah, yeah. Too strong.”
“Didn’t the patriarch say that only the legendary Saint Stage experts are capable of doing something like this? Could he be a Saint Stage expert?”
“What do you guys know? Didn’t you see that those things flew out of the ring? This is called a storage ring. There are many of them in the outside world, and they can be used to store things.”
“How do you know?”
“The patriarch told me, of course.”
Because of the protection of the stone tablet, besides hunting fiend beasts, these villagers had almost never left Stone Village, so they were unaware of what was happening in the outside world.
All the news regarding the outside world basically came from the old man. He was also the only person who had ever left Stone Village.
However, that was decades ago.
“Haha, Little Brother, what is your spirit wine made of? It’s countless times better than the wine we brewed ourselves.”
“That’s right, that’s right. And it even increases our cultivation.”
“It smells like spirit fruit.”
After the burly men in the village drank the spirit wine, they gradually let loose and surrounded Qin Jue as they cheerfully said.
To be honest, Qin Jue was still quite uncomfortable being surrounded by a group of men. After all, he was an out-and-out straight man.
Moreover, he had collected these spirit wines from other places, so how could he explain how they were made?
Fortunately, Shi Tian ran over with a large piece of beast meat and broke the awkwardness. “Um… I still don’t know your name.”
Qin Jue heaved a sigh of relief and said, “Qin Jue.”
Shi Tian nodded and said seriously, “Can you tell me about the outside world?”
After saying this, Shi Tian had a hopeful expression, like a child who was thirsty for knowledge.
Qin Jue agreed without hesitation. Firstly, it was to avoid those burly men. Secondly, in this situation, even an idiot could tell that Shi Tian was definitely not ordinary, right?
“What do you want to know?”
Qin Jue said indifferently.
“I want to know about everything out there.”
Shi Tian took a bite of the beast meat, his mouth full of oil.
Shaking his head with a bitter smile, Qin Jue sighed and said, “I come from the Southern Land, so I can only tell you some things about the Southern Land.”
In these half a month, Qin Jue had crossed half of the Sacred Land of the Central Continent and come into contact with many forces and cities.
However, he had only casually browsed through most places. The region he knew best was still the Southern Land.
Therefore, Qin Jue started speaking frankly and confidently, telling the youth everything he knew. In fact, Qin Jue also knew very little about the Spirit Central World. After all, he did only stay in the Xuanyi Mountain Sect for 10 years.
Unexpectedly, not only did Qin Jue’s description make Shi Tian listen with relish, but even other youths surrounded him, including the drunk burly men and the old man. They also sat down and listened patiently.
They had lived in the Demon Beast Mountain Range for decades. From the elders to the children, they were all filled with curiosity about the outside world. Now that they had finally met someone who came from the outside world, how could they miss this opportunity?
For a moment, Qin Jue felt as if he was a professor teaching students.
“So this is what the outside world is like? It doesn’t seem to be much safer than our Demonic Beast Mountain Range.”
An adult cultivator sighed.
“Yeah, yeah. It seems like it’s safer to stay here.”
Another person chimed in.
Qin Jue :”…”
Even though he was a bit speechless, when he thought about it carefully, it did seem to be the case. Even though he had to constantly be on guard against fiend beasts here, as long as he entered the range of Stone Village, he would be absolutely safe.
In the outside world, however, if one was careless, they could be wiped out by other factions and die. Furthermore, they had no place to hide.
“I want to go out and take a look.”
At this moment, the youth’s firm voice sounded as if a new door had been opened to him. His tone was filled with anticipation.
In an instant, everyone looked at Shi Tian and said in surprise and uncertainty, “Little Tian, you want to go to the outside world? It’s very dangerous outside.”
“That’s right. This young brother also said that there are bad people everywhere in the outside world.”
“In my opinion, Little Tian is only 15 years old and is already the most powerful cultivator in our village. It might not be a bad thing for him to go out on an adventure.”
“Indeed. With Little Tian’s talent, he should be a super genius even in the outside world, right?”
Everyone discussed animatedly because of Shi Tian’s decision.
The residents of Stone Village were all very simple. A portion of them didn’t want Shi Tian to leave because they were afraid that he would encounter danger outside.
Another group that supported Shi Tian believed that he was talented and would not be in any danger.
In fact, no matter where one put him, a 15-year-old Heaven Stage cultivator would be a top genius, even in the Eight Great Sacred Lands.
At this moment, everyone still didn’t realize what impact Qin Jue’s words had on the youth, nor did they know what kind of a person the youth would become in the future.
The old man tapped the walking stick in his hand and said seriously, “Shi Tian, are you sure you want to go to the outside world?”
Hearing this, Shi Tian did not hesitate at all and nodded heavily. “Yes!”
“Aren’t you afraid of the danger outside?”
“Hahaha, good! As expected of a man of our Stone Village. That’s the right way to act!”
The old man said happily. Who would have thought that the old man had waited several years to hear Shi Tian say this!
Back then, the old man and a few experts from the village went out to travel. In the end, they suffered heavy casualties, and only he returned alive. He even fell ill.
For decades, the old man had never thought about revenge. Now, he finally saw hope!
“Shi Tian, I can agree to let you leave the village and head to the outside world, but I want you to promise me one thing.”
Taking a deep breath, the old man said solemnly.
The old man had buried this matter in his heart for decades and had never told anyone about it. Now, he wanted to say it in front of the entire village!
“What is it?”
Shi Tian said with a smile.
“Find a person named Chen Beixuan and kill him!”
The old man’s eyes were blood-red as he gritted his teeth.
Qin Jue: “???”
What was going on?
Why was the plot different from what he expected?
Did something go wrong?
