“Ahhh! Don’t say it out loud!” Bai Xiaochun was panicking. He knew this rabbit’s hobbies. His body charged out in a flash, and the wings on his back rapidly swept outwards so he could chase.
However, this rabbit was too fast, and he could only hear its voice echo from the distance.
“Ahhh! Don’t say it out loud!”
After he chased the rabbit for a long time, Bai Xiaochun found out, to his despair, that his cultivation of the tenth layer of Qi Condensation actually… couldn’t catch up to this rabbit. The quickness of its speed was unimaginable, as if there was a god helping it.
“It’s over, it’s over…” Bai Xiaochun blankly watched the rabbit vanish within the blink of an eye. His body trembled, and he seemed to have been struck by thunder. Even during his dreams, he had never thought that this damned parrot rabbit would actually be like a nightmare and also come to the North Bank.
“What I said just now, how much has that rabbit heard?” Bai Xiaochun forcefully grabbed his hair; he was about to cry. This parrot rabbit that would appear and disappear unpredictably made Bai Xiaochun insane. If it continued on like this, he felt that he would definitely have a mental trauma in the future, so much that he might as well just stay silent from now on.
He had already regretted it many times. At the start, why would he give the rabbit a strange pill and create this parrot rabbit that would make him gnash his teeth?
“That damned rabbit. It shouldn’t have heard anything; it mustn’t have heard anything. If not, it would’ve started parroting when it was running earlier!” Bai Xiaochun was restless, and he wanted to cry but had no tears. Now, he was worriedly comforting himself. He couldn’t do anything but comfort himself. If he couldn’t catch that parrot rabbit, then it would be like a pill furnace that could explode at any time. Once it explodes, then it would be world-shaking.
Bai Xiaochun was nervous and hurriedly returned to the pavilion. He tidied up his travelling equipment. He hurriedly made preparations to escape the North Bank and return to the South Bank at any moment as he anxiously looked at the Rearing Beast Flower.
“Only three days! After three days, it can birth the strongest combat beast!” Bai Xiaochun’s eyeballs were red. When he anxiously waited, the Nocturnal Beast had dragged another combat beast again. Bai Xiaochun hurriedly blocked it and strictly warned the Nocturnal Beast to not come to dedicate itself again, and that there was no need to bring the combat beasts anymore.
The Nocturnal Beast was immediately discontent and bared its teeth towards Bai Xiaochun, putting on a violent appearance. Bai Xiaochun’s heart suddenly shook as he let out a dry cough.
“It’s not impossible… so, the North Bank has a rabbit that appears and disappears unpreditably, and likes to parrot. Go catch it for me!”
The Nocturnal Beast had confusion clouding its eyes. Bai Xiaochun used sign language and also spoke. Finally, the Nocturnal Beast seemed to have understood him. With a flash, it turned around and became a shadow that charged into the distance.
Expectation appeared in Bai Xiaochun’s eyes as he looked at the Nocturnal Beast that had ran into the distance.
“Good luck. If you really manage to catch that rabbit, then I’ll help you find another Rearing Beast Seed, even if I have to fight for it!” The moment Bai Xiaochun thought of how terrifyiing the parrot rabbit was, he sighed again and returned to the courtyard, anxiously waiting.
Time passed, and soon, the day ended.
Throughout the day, Bai Xiaochun always had his ears on full alert, listening to the sounds outside. Looking at the disciples of the North Bank, he could see that they were all in action during these days to find the reason behind the changes in their combat beasts. Bai Xiaochun was the main suspect in this case, and many people came over to him to look around. Fortunately, Bai Xiaochun had covered the Rearing Beast Flower, and as long as no one approached the back of the courtyard, no one could see it.
Although the disciples of the North Bank suspected him, in addition to the fact that Bai Xiaochun had went out at night, the fact that his speed was extremely fast, and also because he didn’t make any mistakes, the disciples of the North Bank could only leave due to a lack of evidence.
Bai Xiaochun’s heart actually got even more nervous. Another day passed, and the North Bank, from the beginning until the end, could not find the reason for the change that occured to their combat beasts. And so, their investigation got even more strict, especially those combat beasts that were frequently agitated, which caused countless cries of surprise and bellows.
“Just what in the world is this!”
“Could it be that there is an epidemic? It doesn’t seem like it. There shouldn’t be an epidemic like this!”
“This is fishy, too fishy!”
The upheaval in the North Bank finally and gradually exploded. A large amount of outer sect disciples participated in it, and the inner sect disciples also made a move. Even the Ancestors appeared. Finally, half a day before the Rearing Beast Flower would bear fruit, the North Bank found a trail with the full force investigation of the sect.
“The Nocturnal Beast that formerly belonged to Beihan Lie!”
“During these days, this beast would quietly appear and rapidly drag away a combat beast to some unknown area! After the beasts that got dragged away returned, they would have a strange expression!”
“Find that beast!”
The disciples of the North Bank were all burning with rage, and one by one, they made a move. They covered the mountains and plains, and searched throughout the sect. With this kind of effort, they quickly found the Nocturnal Beast in the area behind the mountain. At the same time, they also found a rabbit.
The speed of this rabbit was amazingly quick, and it was currently dashing away. The Nocturnal Beast behind it used all of its force to chase after it. One dog and one rabbit were hurriedly running about under the gazes of the disciples of the North Bank.
If it was merely this, then it would be nothing much. Quickly, a sound, that made the complexions of all the disciples of the North Bank change, impressively came out of the mouth of the rabbit that was getting chased.
“Junior Sister Meixiang, I, with the identity of the Ancestor of the Ghost Tooth Mountain, vow to absolutely never let Li Qinghou get away with it!”
“Elder Sun, you’re so bad…”
“Haha, this pill’s not bad. I, Bai Xiaochun, really am a genius, now even a rabbit knows how to speak!”
“My, Bai Xiaochun’s, strongest combat beast is about to be born. Humph! disciples of the North Bank, tremble!”
“It’s fine if you guys don’t lend me your beasts, but you also slandered me… Just wait until you guys find out the reason behind the anomalies of your combat beasts, and after you know that your combat beasts have already dedicated their Hereditary Blood in here... by that time, I, Bai Xiaochun, will have already returned to the South Bank! Hahahahaha!”
Following the rabbit running away, and following the colourful words that echoed out, all of the surrounding disciples of the North Bank that had came here were dumbstruck. At the start, they were still slightly muddled, but when it got to the end, all of the people here thoroughly understood. This strange and exotic rabbit was the creation of Bai Xiaochun, and it loved to parrot!
When the rabbit said everything, the bodies of all of the disciples of the North Bank shook. One by one, they widely opened their eyes, and their breathing got faster. They stared at that rabbit that was getting chased by the Nocturnal Beast, while it was shouting and rapidly running into the distance.
“The dedication of the Hereditary Blood?”
“After finding out the reason why the combat beasts are agitated, Bai Xiaochun had already left the North Bank?”
“Bai Xiaochun!” The disciples of the North Bank all shouted, especially those disciples who had agitated combat beasts during these past few days; at the moment, they were the most depressed. They unleashed their full speed and charged directly to the Hundred Beasts Courtyard with a world-shaking booming sound.
With the rabbit running around, its sharp words continuously echoed out. Quickly, it had spread around the North Bank, and slowly, the disciples of the North Bank heard it. They all opened their eyes widely and quickly shouted out with rage, shaking the heavens and earth in the North Bank.
“So it was his fault! He’s still thinking of running back to the South Bank?”
“Down with Bai Xiaochun!”
The disciples of the North Bank were all mad. The outer sect, the inner sect, and many elders also appeared, and they all charged towards the Hundred Beasts Courtyard.
At the same time, within the North Bank, when the rabbit, which appeared and disappeared unpredictably, had finally shaken off the Nocturnal Beast, it was suddenly stopped. In front of it, an old monkey had soundlessly and tracelessly appeared with an imposing expression. It stared at the rabbit while exuding killing intent and the vicissitudes of life.
“Rabbit, who in the world are you?”
The expression of the rabbit instantly turned imposing as it stared at the old monkey. The vicissitudes of life also appeared on its body, as well as killing intent. It solemnly spoke, “Rabbit, who in the world are you?”
The old monkey’s eyes flashed with a harsh look and directly went after the rabbit. A harsh look also flashed in the rabbit’s eyes, and it instantly escaped. One monkey and one rabbit, vanished within the blink of an eye.
Within the Hundred Beasts Courtyard, Bai Xiaochun was currently nervously waiting. After four hours, his strongest combat beast would be born. But just at this moment, an intense booming sound suddenly echoed from outside. Following the echo of the booming sound, many figures that had exuded an extremely vigorous killing intent rapidly approached.
“Bai Xiaochun!” The disciples of the North Bank all carried flames of anger and instantly approached. They unexpectedly attacked the pavillion’s formation array, and the loud sounds shook the heavens. When the pavilion’s formation array shook at high-speed, Bai Xiaochun immediately opened his eyes widely, and his heart dropped.
“What are you guys trying to do! I am the Honourable disciple; I am the Sect Head’s Junior Brother, I…”
“It’s useless no matter who you are!” The disciples of the North Bank were impulsive, and currently, they had strength in numbers. With a loud roar, they attacked the pavilion’s formation array, and quickly, the formation array let out -Ka Ka- sound. Under the bombardment of the countless disciples here, it looked as if it was going to break down in a moment.
Bai Xiaochun’s scalp was numb. He discovered that the disciples of the North Bank were too savage. The South Bank had only throwed stones at him, but the North Bank unexpectedly wanted to actually make a move. If the formation array really broke, each man could use a finger, and they could jab him into meat paste.
“Murder!” Bai Xiaochun let out a miserable shriek and hurriedly retreated. In his heart, an unlimited amount of grievances rose up in his heart. These disciples of the North Bank were bullying people too much. First, it was the provocative letters and slander. Now, he had merely let those beasts dedicate themselves for a bit, and as a result, they actually wanted to get rid of him.
It was at that moment when he retreated that a booming sound echoed out. The formation array collapsed, and the several tens of thousands disciples of the North Bank, who held a burning rage, were about to charge in. But suddenly, four cold snorts suddenly echoed from the sky. The ancestors of the North Bank’s four mountains descended, blocking the disciples of the North Bank that were driven mad.
The old woman from the Iricdaceae Mountain swept her gaze towards the disciples of the North Bank that were present.
“Ancestor, we…” Some disciples were unwilling to accept this interruption and were about to speak.
“Shut up! You people have besieged the Hundred Beasts Courtyard. What a scandal!” The old woman from the Iricdaceae Mountain shouted, and her voice was like thunder. It shook all of the disciples, and they all turned nervous.
“Right, you guys have besieged the Hundred Beasts Courtyard, too outrageous!” Bai Xiaochun also relaxed and strictly spoke from inside the pavillion.
“You shut up too!” The old woman turned her head and ferociously glared at Bai Xiaochun. She was about to continue speaking, when suddenly, her eyes widened; her gaze fell on the Rearing Beast Flower in the back courtyard. She took a deep breath, and the bodies of the three other Ancestors also trembled. They simultaneously looked at the Rearing Beast Flower and quickly cried out.
“Rearing Beast Seed!”
