Standing in front of the wooden house and looking into the distance, a few miles from here there was a river with billowing waves.
The river was almost a hundred meters wide, and there was a bridge floating on top of the river. On the other side of the bridge there was a dirt path leading into the deep forest, leading into an unknown destination. On this side of the bridge, there were a few archer towers made from wood and dirt standing solid. The bridge that was dozens of meters away from the riverbank had two leather straps on it; this was a suspension bridge.
On the other side of the bridge, there was a green mountain that resembled a natural barrier. Two mountain ridges extended like two long arms gently hugging on a flat land spanning dozens of miles. The mountain landscape was cliffy, and underneath the gigantic trees, there was fully-grown wild grass with poison sticks. Even a mouse could not get past this unharmed.
A natural green river was in front, and behind there was a huge green mountain. This small piece of land had fertile soil with both grass and trees growing. Two small streams flowed across the land; this was indeed a rich land suitable for homes. Not far away from the wooden house where Wu Qi had slept, there was a few hundred loosely built wooden houses both big and small, surrounded by trees. In between these houses there were farmlands spread evenly. A few dogs were playfully chasing the deer-like animal with a single horn on its head.
The man who delivered food and clothes to Wu Qi was squatting in front of a red flower bush not far from the house, digging a white tree root while puffing hard. When he heard the sound Wu Qi made when he came out from the house, the man hastily put the tree root into the beast skin bag tied onto his waist, then he turned around and smiled at Wu Qi.
“Red Flower Cane, it is used specifically to cure all kinds of internal wounds, and it helps women who have lost too much blood. Hehe, looks like brother won’t need this.”
Wu Qi nodded his head thankfully, and then he asked, “What is little brother’s great name? Wu Qi wishes to thank you for saving my life.”
The ripped man was startled for a moment, and then he suddenly smiled, “Wu Qi? That name sure is weird. Great name? You are ruining my appetite by speaking like a book. My name is Doggie. Great name, I do not have a great name yet. When I become an adult at 16, I’ll let the elder give me a name!”
Walking towards Wu Qi, he slapped Wu Qi with some force, and then he dragged him to the front of the village, towards the direction of the suspension bridge.
While Doggie was walking, he kept boasting about the night before yesterday and the miraculous effect of the illuminate tiger’s blood that his dad had fed Wu Qi. According to his words, the blood of the illuminate tiger could bring the dead back to life, it could cure all kinds of diseases and wound. It was simply an almighty medicine.
Wu Qi just smiled while listening to Doggie’s boasting. He looked up and down at the surrounding scenery while making some judgments in his mind quietly.
The level of productivity here was not high; it could even be described as low. All the men here were full of strength. He saw a few women who went to carry water from the river, the buckets they carried had a diameter of more than one meter, and it was the size of about two small water urns.
Everyone here were equipped with all sorts. A group of kids was practicing skills on a small piece of flat land in the middle of the village. The weapons in their hands were real and sharp. Looking at the size of the blades and pikes, it seemed weigh at least 20-30 kg, and this group of kids who were only about 7-8 years old could swing these weapons as if they were nothing.
After some quick thinking, Wu Qi quietly circulated a skill found within the ‘Chapter Source of Water’, and then he injected the Innate Water Energy into his eyes. A thin layer of blue amber immediately covered both eyes. Looking at those kids who were practicing with pikes and blades once again, to Wu Qi’s surprise, these children’s bodies was filled with qi and blood, as well as some pretty strong internal energy that was circulating within their bodies.
These kids were in theory able compare with the elite members of the Underhand Sect’s Greedy Wolf Group. The internal energy within their body is worth at least 3 to 5 years of hard practice.
Wu Qi suddenly gasped; he discovered that the thickness of the natural energies contained within the air was incredible.
The ‘Scroll of Stealing’ covers almost everything. Within it was an endless amount of profound content. There was also a section about natural energies highlighted within the ‘Scroll of Stealing’. Natural energy is the foundation for all cultivators; the higher level its thickness, the more benefits for the cultivator.
The natural energies on Earth was long gone because of the modern industries’ mass productions of items, Earth was just like a wasteland of natural energies.
“Men, kill all! Women, rob all! Kids, eat all! My children, march!”
