Finally, the opening day arrived. At least a few hundred people would be entering along with Qin Wushuang. Inwardly, Qin Wushuang was surprised. Regardless of the motive of these people for entering the Dispersed Praying Mountain, more people meant more potential enemies.
When he arrived at the entrance, Qin Wushuang felt two cold stares was observing him from the back. Without turning his head, he knew these people must be that Zhu Dazhong and Young Master Zhao.
Qin Wushuang was not worried. As long as he entered the Dispersed Praying Mountain, he would be like a fish in the sea and a bird flying freely in the sky. He would not even fear Zhu Dazhong.
To use the geographical terrain and all other means, Qin Wushuang believed that he would be capable of dealing with Zhu Dazhong. Currently, he was rather curious about the purpose behind Zhu Dazhong's visit to this Dispersed Praying Mountain. Could he also be looking for the Spiritual Infant Fruits?
And among these hundreds of people, how many had also come in search of the Spiritual Infant Fruits?
Of course, Qin Wushuang knew that the Spiritual Infant Fruits was only one of the miraculous medicines in the Dispersed Praying Mountain. Although it might be rare, it was not the only one.
If one did not have such special needs, the others would not have came here to search for this fruit.
When the entrance had opened, groups of people continuously charged into the Dispersed Praying Mountain. In a flash, they had disappeared into the sea of forests.
Qin Wushuang was not an exception. Once he had entered, he travelled fast into the hidden places.
Earlier, he had collected many information about the Dispersed Praying Mountain. Thus, he was not confused when he entered. According to the information, the Spiritual Infant Fruits usually grew in remote places.
"This Spiritual Infant Fruits usually grows every few hundred years. It is extremely difficult to find it unless I possess great luck, otherwise this trip will be hopeless one." Inwardly, Qin Wushuang knew the reality. However, he was not depressed. As long as there was a glimmer of hope, he would not give up.
Qin Wushuang planned to search each one of those places where history had recorded the appearance of the Spiritual Infant Fruits. Although this was a somewhat stupid method, it was the only clue he had.
Otherwise, searching randomly would be the same as finding a needle in the ocean. He would not even be able to travel through the entire Dispersed Praying Mountain in three years.
After walked for three or five days, Qin Wushuang arrived at a valley. The information showed that in this mountain valley, the Spiritual Infant Fruits had appeared once about more than a thousand years ago.
The exact location was in that underground karst cave beneath the fault in the valley. Qin Wushuang started walking towards the bottom of the valley with the map.
As he climbed down, the tree vine appeared extremely thick since there were no signs of habitation. This allowed Qin Wushuang to have a lot of places to lean against. Of course, it also increased a the difficulty of finding that karst cave.
Although it was troublesome, after a moment, Qin Wushuang still found that entrance to the karst cave. He did not dare to go in recklessly. Instead, he let out the white sable and instructed it to go search inside the karst cave.
After waiting for about fifteen minutes outside the cave, that white sable ran out with a somewhat depressed expression.
"You didn't find it?" Qin Wushuang was disappointed.
He followed with that white sable. This karst cave was not very big and it was enough to explore the entire thing in about fifteen minutes. Qin Wushuang did not ignore any of the plants. However, none of them appeared the same as the Spiritual Infant Fruits recorded in the books.
After searching for a few times, Qin Wushuang was somew
hat disappointed and exited from the karst cave. He knew that this first place did not have Spiritual Infant Fruits.
He made his way back up the valley and just as he was about to leave, he suddenly noticed two figures approaching rapidly below the mountain road. Qin Wushuang was surprised and a strange thought immediately emerged in his head: "Indeed, only enemies cross paths. Could these two have come in search of the Spiritual Infant fruits?"
Zhu Dazhong and that Young Master Zhao were together. Obviously, that Young Master Zhao was much weaker and Zhu Dazhong was matching his speed. This way, they did not arrive as quick as Qin Wushuang.
Qin Wushuang immediately hid his body within the forest. In a moment, that Zhu Dazhong and Young Master Zhao arrived on the scene.
Young Master Zhao said: "Head Zhu, this is the place, right?"
Zhu Dazhong nodded to verify after looking at it for a moment: "This is the place."
"Let's go down." Young Master Zhao was impatient.
"Hold on." Zhu Dazhong was extremely cunning as he observed the surroundings. He shook his head after looking around: "Someone had came here before!"
"Someone came?" Young Master Zhao said: "Whatever. There are more than eighty thousand adventurers in this Dispersed Praying mountain. It's not strange that someone else came here before us."
Zhu Dazhong smiled bitterly. Inwardly, he felt that this guys truly had no skills. How did he make it to the Middle Stage, did he truly rely on luck and fortune accumulated by his ancestors?
He explained patiently: "In this Dispersed Praying Mountain, we are all competitors and maybe even enemies. We must be cautious of each step we take."
However, Young Master Zhao was impatient: "Head Zhu, if we have to be wary about every step we take, I am afraid that there will be no hope of healing the injury to my grandfather's dantian."
Zhu Dazhong shook his head helplessly: "Then what do you say?"
"We can go down directly, let's go by two separate paths. Even if something is to happen, we can look after each other."
Zhu Dazhong said: "That's not necessary, it's not necessary for both of us to go down to explore." After he finished speaking, he pulled out a rodent spiritual beast. It appeared hairy with its eyes circling on its cheeky face, it seemed sly.
"Go, go find the entrance of that karst cave."
After Zhu Dazhong had instructed it, that rodent rushed out with a creaking sound. In a moment, it had arrived at the deep valley along the tree vine.
"Ha ha, Head Zhu, you had such a good thing." Young Master Zhao laughed: "Head Zhu, last time the Mysteries Archaic Sect talked about my compensation. I didn't want anything, why don't you prepare me a rodent spiritual beast? I don't need a high level one, just Advanced Stage is enough!"
Zhu Dazhong almost spat out a mouthful of blood. How many Advanced Stage spiritual beast had the sect nurtured? Even the five Heads did not have one Advanced beast per person. The rarity of these Advanced Stage spiritual beasts was quite apparent.
He smiled bitterly: "Young Master Zhao, it's not easy to find an Advanced Stage Spiritual Beast. If you really like it, I will give you a Middle Stage Spiritual Beast."
"Middle Stage? Head Zhu, you are too cheap?"
Zhu Dazhong could only explain: "Young Master Zhao, the Archaic sect only has three Advanced Stage beasts. I am afraid this number does not even compare to your Nine Palace Faction."
Young Master Zhao was disappointed: "In the Nine Palace, only the three Leaders have Advanced Stage Spiritual combat beasts. The other Advanced Stage beasts do not have contract owners. They only exist as combat forces for the Nine Palace Faction. Wouldn't it be intimidating if I can make a contract with an Advanced Stage beast?"
Zhu Dazhong did not dare to respond to his words. Indeed, this fastidious yet incompetent young master left him speechless. If he knew it was going to be like this, he should have acted alone. It would be much better than serving this young master.
Qin Wushuang, who was hiding in the dark did not let out his spiritual sense. However, he still heard everything between these two.
Inwardly, while feeling shocked, he was also joyful: "So that Elder Zhao Heng's dantian got injured. Although it seemed that the power of the Spiritual Graceful Bow did not work at that time, it still managed to injure him. He was in a rush to escape and exacerbated the severity of his injuries. Great! This way, my teacher should feel somewhat better."
While he calculated, Qin Wushuang was considering whether he should kill these two. He was confident that as long as he could use the Spiritual Graceful Bow to launch a sneak attack, he would have eighty or ninety percent chance to kill this Zhu Dazhong.
When Zhu Dazhong died, how could he not do whatever he wanted to this grandson of Zhao Heng?
He remembered how that Zhu Dazhong had intended to kill him at the sheer cliff near the border. Thinking about this, Qin Wushuang was extremely angered. And this Zhu Dazhong was one of the accomplices who had harmed his teacher. It made Qin Wushuang even more determined to kill him.
Now, noticing that he was not on guard, he was already thinking about this matter.
"For sneak attacks, I must succeed in one try. Or else, it would be extremely difficult to kill him. It will be the same as killing Zhang Baidang. There is only one chance…" Qin Wushuang thought inwardly.
At this moment, a white light flashed in the valley as that spiritual mouse suddenly rushed out. Without question, the expression of the spiritual mouse also appeared extremely depressed. It talked a bunch. Naturally, Qin Wushuang understood everything. This spiritual mouse told Zhu Dazhong that there was a karst cave below. It was not big and there weren't any spiritual fruits or vines.
Zhu Dazhong was somewhat disappointed as he said: "Young Master Zhao, it seems we must change locations."
Young Master Zhao said depressingly: "This place doesn't have any Spiritual Infant Fruits?"
Zhu Dazhong said: "After all, Spiritual Infant Fruits are not ordinary fruits, they are natural born medicine and born from nature. Although this place had it before, it does not mean it would have it now. Besides, there are many places that had borne Spiritual Infant Fruits. Let's go search each place. Perhaps, we can encounter some good luck."
Zhu Dazhong's idea was the same as Qin Wushuang. He was also planning to search one location after another.
However, Qin Wushuang thought: "The next place? If I let you reach the next place, then I don't deserve to be a disciple of the Stargaze Palace! Today, I will kill this Zhu Dazhong, and collect some interest. As for the greater grudge of the Nine Palace and the Archaic Mysteries, I will repay it slowly in the future…"
Zhu Dazhong was extremely cunning. He threw the spiritual mouse and instructed it to stay at the rear!
Hearing his instruction, Qin Wushuang cursed: "Such cunning old fox, letting this spiritual mouse stay at the rear, how could I carry out the assassination?"
Initially, Zhu Dazhong had sensed that someone had already come. Being a careful person, he did not wish others who were also seeking the Spiritual Infant Fruits to track them. Thus, he left this spiritual mouse to stay at the rear. Once there were some movements, he could make the corresponding plan immediately!
Feeling helpless, Qin Wushuang could only suppress the anger and hatred inside him. That spiritual mouse only rushed away from the grassland when Zhu Dazhong and Young Master Zhao had disappeared from view.
Although Qin Wushuang's sneak attack plan had been interrupted. He had gained even more determination: "Zhu Dazhong is an Advanced Stage Warrior and a head of a sect. Being a cunning figure, it would be rather strange if I had successfully launched a sneak attack this easily. Great, I will play with him along the way!"
