Chapter 69 – Ice City
Fortunately, the snowy and Red Sun City was close to each other, therefore Feng Hao did not have to spend a lot of time on the road. In addition, he was able to take a shortcut past the magic beast mountain range. Three days later, his eyes were greeted by a vast expanse of whiteness.
Bone chilling wind, looking around the whole heaven and earth was filled with white snow. In the air, vast amounts of snowflakes floated from the sky as if the heat of the sun was unable to spread on the lands.
Perhaps due to being closer to the snowy region, the weather became colder and the falling snowflakes added thick layers of snow under one's feet. With the cold wind blowing, the coldness increased. This caused Feng Hao to quickly circulate his Wu Yuan to expel the cold air.
Continuing on moving forward, there was a sudden change in his body that made Feng Hao stop on his feet.
It was common sense to say that in such a tough environment, no one should be feeling comfortable. However, just now Feng Hao was stunned. The moment he stepped on the snow, the red medicine dan above Shen Nong Medicine Canon began emitting ripples of energy, it was very comfortable.
Slightly being stunned, Feng Hao bent down and stretched out his hand in front of him to grab a handful of snow. He chuckled for a while, then he seemed to realize something as he softly spoke: "Is there a problem with the climate in this place?"
"En, you are right. Due to the climate, the ice attribute Wu Yuan is rich, allowing it to invade your body. Naturally, the medicine dan resisted."
Within the ring, Old Fen faintly laughed.
"So it turns out to be that way."
Slightly nodding, Feng Hao breathed a sigh of relief. He patted down on the exquisite Medicine Master robe on his body, then stepped forward towards to the distant ice crystal like city.
Gradually approaching the city, the amount of passersby increased more and more. These passersby were for the most part men wearing thick hides wrapping around their body and they also wore fur hats. The only thing that was left to be shown outside was their faces. Occasionally, he would see a few women. They wore similar clothing as the men but much less so. The women here were not as subtle in their clothing like those from Red Sun City who were shy. They wore warm skin tight animal hides and hanging on their necks were scarfs. They gave a certain different charm and bearing.
These passerby seeing Feng Hao dressed in a thin Medicine Master robe cast looks of awe. They gave way for him and were extremely polite. Along the way, there were even some good looking women that cast out flirtatious gazes, their meaning was self-evident.
On the way, Feng Hao was also quite embarrassed. He did not expect that the women here would be so bold. Smacking his lips, he finally saw the sheer size of the city in the snowy region. On top of the gate, there were two crystal like writings carved on the wall. Under the light of the sun, it unexpectedly reflected a colorful light, it was very beautiful.
Softly reading the words, Feng Hao smiled and slowly walked towards the city gate.
At the city gate, there were more than ten guards that were wearing thick armor with spears on their hands. They would yell at the pedestrians to pay city entrance taxes, these soldiers were very cold. Seeing that they were armed to the teeth, Feng Hao could not help but be stunned.
The defense here, how can it be more rigid than a big city like Red Sun City?
Perhaps it was due to the cold weather, the guarding soldiers were standing in the cold causing them to be irritable. They were not polite as they scolded the people and constantly urged them to quickly move.
Moving towards the city gate, listening to the soldiers run their mouths cursing, Feng hao frowned. He shook his head and walked straight to the entrance. In the Heaven Martial Continent, Medicine Masters have a noble occupation that enjoyed great treatment from everyone. When it comes to going through city gates, they would be exempt from paying the toll. Although Medicine Masters never really care for money, it was still useful to have the status to gain more benefits.
"He! Boy, I did not see you there…"
Looking to his side and seeing no one, he saw Feng Hao going in straight with no regard. As he was about to scold Feng Hao, he suddenly saw the robe that he was wearing. He instantly withdrawn his angry expression and quickly flattered with a smile: "Lord, do you want to go inside the city?"
His footsteps did not stop. Feng Hao just slowly shot a glance to the soldier then brushed past everyone else going inside the city walls.
Seeing that Feng Hao did not pay any attention to him offending earlier, the face of the soldier turned into a blissful face. He swallowed a mouthful of saliva and hurriedly with respect yelled: "Lord, recently this snowy region has become unstable. Going outside the Ice City you, should be careful!"
His pace slow down hearing the unexpected news. Feng Hao nodded faintly then slowly disappeared in the walls dark tunnel.
"Fuck, if people were to know that I almost offended a yellow ranked Medicine Master, my head still being intact would be strange."
Looking at Feng Hao's disappearing figure, the soldier thoroughly breathed in. He wiped his cold sweat and went back to his post. Perhaps due to the close scare, he controlled his anger better and did not dare curse everyone indiscriminately.
Slowly walking out of the dim wall tunnel, what appeared in one’s eyes was snow-like city structures. One would see inside flickering and somewhat odd buildings, Feng Hao's horizon was somewhat broadened.
Standing on the street, Feng Hao swept the road with his eyes and a moment later he asked with a stunned heart: "Master, there seems to be no Medicine Master Guild ah? Where am I supposed to collect the spirit medicines?"
"Idiot, you want me to teach you every little thing? Isn't there medicine store in the city?"
In the ring, Old Fen can only helplessly scold.
"Eh… oh, yes."
Awkwardly laughing, Feng Hao dryly smiled: "I almost forgot, the city market should have spirit medicines of sale."
At the beginning, he also bought spirit medicines in the city market of Magnolia City. It has been some time so he forgot of the existence of the city market.
"First go to the city market to collect as much as you can, if they are lacking, go think of another way."
Old Fen explained, "These spirit medicines in the snowy region should be very common. However, remember that if you fail getting everything, do not try refining a yi crystal."
Hearing Old Fen talk about the matter, Feng Hao helplessly nodded. He sighed and conveniently stopped a passerby to ask for the city market.
The man that was stopped by Feng Hao initially had a resisting expression, however, when he saw Feng Hao dressed in a Medicine Master robe his resisting face quickly disappeared. He politely pointed out the location of the city market to Feng Hao. Before saying his goodbye, the man also earnestly pointed out the situation of the city.
Saying his thanks, Feng Hao looked down on the Medicine Master robe he was wearing. He shook his head. He had to say, this Medicine Master robe was truly useful.
Sighing in his heart, Feng Hao quickly turned the corner then walked towards the direction as told by the passerby.
