“Don’t move!” Xuanyue said .
As a result, Li Qingshan moved like his life depended on it . He even extended his hand towards his head to grab her, but she was extremely agile, so he could not grab her at all . A while later, she said, “Alright!” Afterwards, she took out a bronze mirror and shone it at Li Qingshan .
All Li Qingshan saw were two characters engraved on his left and right horns, ‘North’ and ‘Moon’ .
“I’ll add some colour and meowke it stand out a bit meowre . That’ll be our promeowse!” Xuanyue snickered .
“You can go die!” Li Qingshan was utterly furious .
When the sky began to light up, they found a natural cave to rest in .
Li Qingshan extended his hand with a cold face . “Spiritual pill!”
Xuanyue smiled . “Be good, don’t be angry . Here, open your mouth!” She held a spiritual pill between her fingers, refusing to place it in Li Qingshan’s hand .
The two of them stared at each other . A while later, Li Qingshan opened his mouth and suddenly bit at her hand . His long, pale-white teeth were sharp like knives . Let alone her slender wrist, he could even bite through steel .
Xuanyue reeled her hand back, but all Li Qingshan bit down on was the spiritual pill . Afterwards, she rubbed Li Qingshan’s head . “How vicious!”
Li Qingshan ate the spiritual pill and meditated by himself, continuing the cultivation of the Spirit Turtle’s Method of Sea Suppression . Aside from that, he would hold the mirror and examine the two words etched onto his horns, constantly groaning and sighing to himself . He wondered whether he could remove it .
Right now, he had no idea that the two engraved words did not represent just a promise, but the name of a great Daemon King .
As a result, for the next few days, the three of them rested during the day and travelled at night . Whenever she was bored, Xuanyue would take joy in toying around with Li Qingshan . Although Li Qingshan resisted, it was useless . He could only accept it in the end .
As long as his source of spiritual pills never rang out, his cultivation would grow day by day anyway . Was he supposed to be afraid that there would not be a day when he would reverse the situation?
During these days, Li Qingshan had also learnt a lot about daemons from Xuanyue . Daemons who had yet to condense a daemon core usually had low intelligence . They could only be regarded as powerful wild beasts known as daemonic beasts . Only when they condensed an inner core could they be regarded as daemons .
The ten Daemon Kings all ruled over their own regions, and they had countless Daemon Commanders and Daemon Generals under their command . Although the division of their territory was slightly different from the human administrative divisions, there was some resemblance . The Daemon King of the Green province was the Dragon King of Ink Sea .
Xuan Yue was a daemon who had reached Daemon General . She had already become so powerful despite having just stepped into the domain of the powerful in this world . Li Qingshan struggled to imagine just how powerful Daemon Commanders and Daemon Kings who were even greater than her would be . His heart felt like it had been set alight . Whether he be a human or a daemon, he just wanted to be the strongest . Only then would he avoid being tread on by others .
Currently, Xuanyue hummed to herself as she stood on Li Qingshan’s head, holding onto his two horns and looking into the distance .
Li Qingshan could not help but imagine a sight where he held her in his hand and listened to her gently refer to him as ‘master’ . His lower abdomen was set alight once more, but it was not all fighting spirit .
With his lofty ambitions, Li Qingshan was surging with the flame of desire . Just as he was in the middle of his fantasy, a fishy gust of wind swept over from the treetops . A huge mouth lunged towards him, but Xuanyue, who was currently hidden away, was directly in its way . She casually swung her hand . “Your reaction is too slow!” She produced a silver arc in the air .
A snake head the size of a water jar fell down, and blood sprayed everywhere . It was actually a huge python hidden in the woods .
Li Qingshan avoided the blood and raised his head to see the snake’s body coiled around the tree . It was several meters in length and coloured just like the bark . He would have never discovered it if he had not looked carefully . He felt like he was living through the movie ‘Anaconda’ . Although he had seen many strange things in the past, he still could not help but sigh in amazement . The world actually possessed such strange, terrifying creatures . If it made it to a human village, it could easily slaughter all of them .
Li Qingshan could sniff daemon qi from the snake’s body, so he knew this was a so-called daemonic beast . He had read his share of wuxia novels in the past, so he immediately climbed up the tree to retrieve the snake’s gallbladder . Only then did he discover just how tough the snake’s skin was . Even without the support of daemon qi, it took him quite some effort to get through it . He could imagine just how terrifying this daemonic beast was when it was still alive . Unfortunately, it had chosen the wrong target to attack, which was why it was slain in a single stroke by Xuanyue .
Grabbing the dark-coloured, fishy gallbladder, Li Qingshan swallowed it in one gulp with his eyes shut, ready to accept the pain of cultivation . Xiao An watched on with a shocked gaze .
“Why are you eating the venom sac?” Xuanyue asked in confusion .
“What! The venom sac!?” Li Qingshan’s expression changed . His darkened face turned even darker . His heartbeat sped up as the venom attacked his heart . Basically, Li Qingshan had never done something like removing a snake’s gallbladder even with his two lives combined, so how was he supposed to learn everything all by himself, becoming a survival expert just from transmigrating?
“Meowhahaha!” Xuanyue collapsed on the group in laughter when she saw how Li Qingshan collapsed on the ground from the venom . Then she fished out a round ball from the snake’s body and shoved it into Li Qingshan’s mouth . “Here . That’s the gallbladder . ”
Li Qingshan’s entire body had already seized up . He swallowed the gallbladder with difficulty, and the venom only eased up slightly . Xuanyue took out a pill from her bell . “Here’s a Detoxifying pill!”
Li Qingshan laid there for a while, waiting for the effects of the pill to gradually kick in . Only then did he sit up . He said to the worried Xiao An, “I’m fine . ”
Xuanyue took out another pill and gave it to him . “Here’s your reward!”
“Because it was just too funny . You need to work harder in the future and make your meowster happy . ”
As a result, Li Qingshan accepted the pill with a darkened expression .
Xiao An spat out the Blood Flames of Corpse Incineration and burnt the huge python very quickly, basically avenging Li Qingshan .
The blood flames burned away all of the python’s flesh, only leaving behind a set of bones . It circled through the air and returned to Xiao An’s mouth . The vitality of these daemonic beasts was powerful and vigorous . Even the vitality of a hundred people could not match a single beast’s, so it was extremely beneficial to his Path of White Bone and Great Beauty .
Xuanyue was stunned by the sight . “So that’s what you eat, Li’l Whitey!”
Li Qingshan saw all of this, so he thought of finding more prey for him .
As they ventured deeper into the Boundless mountains, the trees grew taller . Li Qingshan actually felt insignificant very frequently despite his stature that towered at ten feet .
The daemonic beasts they encountered along the way increased as well . Various types that had only appeared in legends and his imagination would be presented right in front of him .
Huge birds with wingspans of over thirty meters flew in the sky while wind and lightning crackled around them . Spiders as large as tables with a skull on their backs would spin webs as large as soccer pitches between over a dozen trees .
