Martial God Conqueror - Chapter 40
Can't Open the Storage Pouch
After he threw that sentence to Shen Yan, Du Shaofu looked at Guo Ming and Zhu Xue. “I’m leaving. Wild Beast Mountains is very dangerous, better leave quickly.”
Leaving that sentence Du Shaofu turned around and left.
Cherry lips slightly parted as if wanted to say something due to hesitation, in the end, no words came out. Her eyebrows dropped looking a little dejected, the feeling of loss apparent in her eyes.
“Kid, what do you think you are! If you ever fall into my hands in the future…” Shen Yan stared angrily at the straight tall back, dissatisfied and there’s a cold gleamed in his eyes. That kid actually dared to brush him off, if and when there’s an opportunity later to teach him a lesson, it mustn’t be missed.
Lu Kun’s expression was unbearably grim. Those from White Panther Hunting Group either died or fled. He and his brothers can’t deal with both Blacknether Sect and Mystical Talisman House at the same time. Thus he immediately signaled the disciples to leave.
“Where are you going, chase after them quickly,” Seeing this Shen Yan hollered, there are treasure on Lu Kun too.
“Lu Kun’s very strong, and most of us are injured. Even if we want to deal with that guy we must heal first. Moreover, even though we are in the outer edge of Wild Beast Mountains, however, recently there have been too many high-level Wicked Beasts roaming around, we should be more careful.”
Lin Boguang had no intention to chase at all, although they have more people but still not enough to guarantee to do harm to Lu Kun. Not only that, he had no desire to be used as a tool by others.
“We should look for a safe place to heal our injuries; we can avenge our brothers in the future.”
Zhu Xue said in a clear voice. She, Guo Ming and most of the disciples, some of the injuries are severe. Especially they are currently in Wild Beast Mountains; it is not the best time to deal with Lu Kun. Anyway, the Lu Kun now can’t bring them any more harm.
“There’ll be a day, where I absolutely will not let him go.” Guo Ming said through gritted teeth, this time he can only give up.
Since everyone has no intention to pursue, Shen Yan relented. He alone is incapable to handle Lu Kun. Shen Yan’s heart longed for the Golden-winged Garuda and the Demonic Purpleflame Phoenix’s feather picked up by Lu Kun. Both are an immeasurable treasure.
The mountain peaks elegantly link like a path into the vast horizon.
At a corner of the forest upon a massive boulder, there’s a Demonic Scales Tiger the size of a kitten next to Du Shaofu, and he’s not in the least worried some wicked beats will sneak up on him or other dangers.
Taking out the storage pouch he got from Skinny Tiger’s body, Du Shaofu checked it carefully. He heard about storage pouch, in the entire Du Clan, only Eldest Uncle and Second Uncle each has one. The cheapest for one of this storage pouches cost a hefty several thousands xuanbi, clearly proofs how expensive it is. Definitely not something ordinary folks could afford on a whim.
“How to open this thing?”
After he fiddled with the pouch for half a day, Du Shaofu encountered a difficult problem. This storage bag is sealed, and he doesn’t know how to open it, which depressed him. As the head of the White Panther Hunting Group, surely there will be a lot of good things on him, and probably it even contains martial skills and elixirs. But, pity this storage cannot be open, and he had no idea at all.
“Little Brother, you won’t be able to open this storage bag, an expert also won’t be able to open it. If you open it by force, the things inside will be destroyed.”
Suddenly a voice sounded in Du Shaofu’s ears, Du ShaoFu’s eyes widened in surprise, instantly retreated a few steps back, his eyes looked towards his chest as his body shivered slightly.
The Demon Scale Tiger beside Du Shaofu also perked up its ears, its eyes squinted as it fixed it’s stare at Du Shaofu’s chest.
One human and one beast’s eyes introspectively stared at the chest area where a thumb-sized little tower floats out from his bosom; the very same little tower Du Shaofu took from Du Clan’s Martial Collection Building. Not too long ago, his clothes, the Violent Stone Demon Wolf’s blood essence, and the base-building dans turned to ashes from the purple-colored flame, only this little tower and a strange animal bone managed to survive.
While the little tower was floating out, rays of brilliant light shined from the little tower, and vague runes flickered as the space around rippled with unusual fluctuations. Rolling smoke gushed out from the little tower, finally condensed into a transparent image of a youth.
This see-through youth looked about twelve to thirteen years old, very thin judging by the silhouette of the image. Extremely thin. Super thin. Basically, he’s just skin wrapped over bones, with sunken cheeks, and his eyebrow is an inverted eight (八) character, and triangle shaped eyes on a wretched looking face.
A twelve, thirteen-year-old youth with an immature but wretched face; the more people look at him the more uncomfortable they will be. It truly makes a person to wonder how could there be such a face in the world. The only words to describe the transparent youth would be ‘extremely wretched’ to truly capture the entirety of the surreal youth in front.
“Hello Little Brother, can I get to know you?”
The wretched see-through youth smiled and floated gently before Du Shaofu. If would have been better if he didn’t smile, the moment he smiled his wretched face look worse than crying. The small triangle shaped eyes weren't balanced and coordinated in the first place, now the small eyes are lost somewhere in his face, if babies or small kids were to see this wretched face, their first reaction is to cry.
And this youth actually called Du Shaofu little brother when he look just little past ten.
“What do you want to do; don’t come over.”
This transparent youth is really too wretched looking that Du Shaofu couldn’t resist to retreat back a few steps, thinking, surely this guy in front wouldn’t have special interests, would he? If the wretched youth dare to make a move on him, he will castrate him! But, it suddenly crossed his mind that he is stronger than the youth in front. Thus he puffed up his chest and felt braver. “Who are you, how did you appear from the little tower?”
“Little Brother, you don’t need to be afraid. Allow me to introduce myself. My family name is Zhen, my name is Qingchun.”
The wretched looking youth introduced himself like a‘great elder’ with a scholarly tone, but it couldn’t disguise the child-like voice.
“Really(Zhen) pure (Qingchun)?” Du Shaofu observed the wretched looking youth, as if unable to figure out why would there be such a name?
“It’s the distinguish (Zhen), and Qingchun is the fragrance from alcohol; not the Qingchun as in Qingchun (pure).”
When Zhen Qingchun was shaking his and explaining, the more his ‘great elder’ like trait came out, however, that juvenile face really makes him feel awkward.
The Demon Scale Tiger growled at Zhen Qingchun but it too was a little frightened for as its kitten-sized body reverted to its original enormity. Its hill-sized body focused solely on Zhen Qingchun, low growls coming from its mouth.
“A Mai-ling level Demon Scale Tiger? Eii, seems like a variation with signs of ancestors genes. Good, good, useful if trained well.” Zhen Qingchun was surprised seeing the Demon Scale Tiger, but then he simply waved his hand. “Just an early Mai-ling level, if it was before. you don’t even have the qualification to become my mount. Quickly stand down.”
The Demon Scale Tiger ignored Zhen Qingchun’s words, growled at Zhen Qingchun however in its eyes are traces of fear.
“Why were you in that little tower?”
Du Shaofu calmed down as he moved to the front of the Demon Scale Tiger, signaled it to be quiet, but his eyes remained vigilant.
“This tower is not an ordinary item and I’m not an ordinary person.”
Zhen Qingchun’s eyes flickered unnoticeably when he looked at Du Shaofu. “Let’s put it this way, my identity is very distinguished and have an exceptional origin. As you can see, I’m a spirit body that’s proof of my cultivation. Due to a mishap during practice that my spirit entered the little tower…’
“You really are a strong expert with an exceptional background?”
Du Shaofu interrupted Zhen Qingchun’s explanation. His eyes roamed curiously over the transparent wretched figure of a youth. He knows very little regarding spirit body, only those legendary strong experts could condensed a spirit body which is the same to having an extra life, however, the know-how to this method are unattainable to ordinary warriors.
“Of course I’m a strong expert, I have extraordinary bearing!” Zhen Qingchun nodded his head enthusiastically, exclaimed with a very loud voice.
“But you look like a snot-nosed kid.”
Zhen Qingchun was at a loss for words. His inverted triangle brows scrunched together, and he looked at Du Shaofu, and said, “That’s because of the accident that happened during my practice, frankly, I’m several hundred years old. Once I’ve healed, my looks will restore.”
“Then, do you have Heaven rank exercise law?” Du Shaofu raised an eyebrow, asked Zhen Qingchun.
When Zhen Qingchun heard this, his transparent face deflated. Then, he showed the smile that would frighten a little kid to tears at Du Shaofu. “About this, I do have it; but since I’m away from home, I don’t have it on me ah.”
“Did you bring any high-grade martial skills? Or some good elixirs or dans also can.” Du Shaofu looked expectantly at Zhen Qingchun, anticipating his answer.
“This… I also didn’t bring any.”
The smile Zhen Qingchun squeezed out with much effort stiffened on his face. The direction of this conversation differed greatly from what he imagined. In his imagination, once he revealed himself and this little brat sees him, he will immediately beg him to take him as his disciple, and at that time… But, the little brat in front of him simply do not follow the script he wrote; only knew how to ask for benefits and not in the slightest interested in him, which caused him to feel depressed.
