Book 7 Chapter 9 Voracious
On the shore of Iron Leaf Island, Teng Qingshan and Li Jun had no solution at the moment. The Blackgale Divine Condor soared proudly high up in the dark sky as it occasionally emitted screeches. Although the Blackgale Divine Condor didn’t have the capability to kill Teng Qingshan, it was still pleased to see Teng Qingshan suffer.
“Big Brother Teng, I will try again!” Li Jun didn’t want to give up. She lifted her head and emitted a loud screech.
Seeing Li Jun’s determined look, Teng Qingshan suddenly grinned.
“Screech~~” The Blackgale Divine Condor emitted a proud high-pitched screech and continued spiralling high up in the sky.
Teng Qingshan casted a glance at the Divine Condor. He understood that the Divine Condor was doing it intentionally.
“Little Jun.” Teng Qingshan opened his mouth.
“Eh?” Li Jun stared at Teng Qingshan.
“Forget about the condor. If we can’t tame it, then there’s no need to insist.” Teng Qingshan glanced at the Blackgale Divine Condor and continued, “The Blackglae Divine Condor is obviously trying to make us mad! It probably hates us because I pierced its wing with my spear. It’s also very difficult to subdue a Golden Dan innate demonic beast. We shouldn’t force it.”
Teng Qingshan did have the thought of subduing the Blackgale Divine Condor earlier.
If they were able to subdue the beast, it would be a very good thing. However, if they couldn’t tame it, then there was no need to force it! Demonic beasts had their own pride. How was it possible for them to yield that easily?
“Yes.” Li Jun nodded and said, “Martial Uncle once said that he expended extremely great effort to subdue Blacky, White and the Red-Eyed Snow Lion.”
“Let’s go back on the boat!”
Teng Qingshan lifted the fish net and carried it on his back. With one hand holding the Reincarnation Spear, he headed into the sea waters while Li Jun followed closely behind.
“Screech~~~” “Screech~~~” Seeing that they were leaving, the Blackgale Divine Condor, which was spiralling in a high altitude, immediately emitted screeches.
“Big Brother Teng, the Blackgale Divine Condor wants us to talk with it again..” Li Jun smiled.
“Ignore it.” Teng Qingshan didn’t even bother to look back.
Li Jun nodded in response and replied, “I know. It is doing it intentionally! It wants to make fun of us.” As they walked into the sea water, Teng Qinghsan immediately submerged himself into the water. As for Li Jun, the seawater around her immediately moved away, allowing her to breathe easily. Hearing the deep roars of the Thunderwhale behind, Li Jun climbed up the Thunderwhale’s back with ease.
Although Teng Qingshan was holding items weighing over one thousand jins, his strong legs still allowed him to swim faraway with a single kick.
Teng Qingshan leaped to the back of a thunderwhale.
The King of Thunderwhales at the side stared at Teng Qingshan with its huge gold-colored eyes as it emitted deep roars. The Blackgale Divine Condor spiralling in a high altitude still made screeching sounds as it tried to draw Teng Qingshan and Li Jun’s attention.
“Big Brother Teng.” Li Jun was full of smiles as she said, “The Blackgale Divine Condor is mocking us! Also, the King of Thunderwhales told us to give the thunderwhales seventy percent of the Iron Leaf Fruits.”
“Be patient. We will head up the boat soon.” Teng Qingshan smiled
Seeing the human who stood on the back of its subordinate, the King of Thunderwhales chose to remain silent. It knew that the human was an expert at the same level as it.
Numerous demonic beasts popped their heads out from the bush beside the shore of the Iron Leaf Island and gazed at the departing human standing on the back of a thunderwhale. There were even many flying demonic beasts in midair. All of the ordinary demonic beast remembered the appearance of the human expert that came to this Iron Leaf Island, gathered all the Iron Leaf Fruits, and even injured the master of the Iron Leaf Island, the Blackgale Divine Condor.
A group of reefs.
Teng Qingshan held Li Jun and jumped ten zhangs high, descending directly on the deck of the tungsten wood vessel.
“Roar~~” The King of Thunderwhales lifted his head and emitted a deep roar towards Teng Qingshan.
“Big Brother Teng, it is asking us to give it the Iron Leaf Fruits.” Li Jun explained.
“How? Throw it into the sea?” Teng Qingshan asked and said, “The Iron Leaf Fruits are very heavy. They will sink to the bottom immediately.”
After conversing with the King of Thunderwhales, Li Jun nodded and said, “Big Brother Teng, it is asking us to throw the Iron Leaf Fruit into the sea. The Thunderwhales will bring the Iron Leaf Fruits away.”
Teng Qingshan opened the fish net and pushed thirty to forty percent of the Iron Leaf Fruits onto the tungsten wood vessel. “Clang!” “Clang!” “Clang!” The Iron Leaf Fruits hit the floor of the deck like jadeite balls. The floor of the deck was made with tungsten wood that was harder and tougher than steel.
As the two clashed, the clear and loud sound produced resonated above the seas.
“King of Thunderwhales, all of these belong to you!” Teng Qingshan held the big fish net which was filled with a great amount of Iron Leaf Fruits.
Over thirty thunderwhales on the surface of the water lifted their heads. As The King of Thunderwhales stared at the great amount of Iron Leaf Fruits, joy and surprise filled its enormous gold-colored eyes.
“Catch!” Teng Qingshan laughed before he forcefully shook the fish net, causing a few hundred azure-colored fruits to fly up into the sky; they flew a total of seven to eight zhangs high up in the sky.
It was as if the sky was raining fruits. The few hundred fruits all fell into the sea. “Pa! Pa! Pa!” They smashed onto the water surface one after the other, causing splashes of snowy white waves.
“Phew!” The King of Thunderwhales opened its huge mouth and forcefully inhaled.
It was as if a cyclone appeared out of nowhere, producing a powerful torrent of air which engulfed the seawater in the surroundings as it rushed into King of Thunderwhales’ mouth. The large amount of seawater and the Iron Leaf Fruits that dropped into the seawater surged into the King of Thunderwhales’ mouth. Simultaneously, a dozen thunderwhales flipped their tails and dived into the depths of the waters to avoid losing any Iron Leaf Fruit.
“The boat is swaying and it is moving towards its mouth!” Li Jun cried out in shock. Because of the strong surging water, even the tungsten wood vessel became unstable as it moved towards the mouth of the King of Thunderwhales.
“The King of Thunderwhale is messing with me.” Teng Qingshan stood on the deck. Yet, he didn’t seem anxious at all.
The tungsten wood vessel drifted along with the surging water for a distance of around seven to eight zhangs. Suddenly, the tungsten wood vessel stopped moving. It stopped around ten zhangs away from the enormous mouth of the King of Thunderwhales; the iron rope of the tungsten wood vessel was still tied to the dorsal fin of a thunderwhale.
The thunderwhale was pulling the tungsten wood vessel, thus, how was it possible for the tungsten wood vessel to fall into the King of Thunderwhales’ mouth?
At the moment, the iron rope, which was as thick as an arm, was stretched into a straight line, forcefully stopping the tungsten wood vessel.
After a while—
The King of Thunderwhales stopped swallowing, and the seawater in the surroundings regained its calmness while the tungsten wood vessel drifted slowly with the flow of the seawater.
“Roar~~” The King of Thunderwhales excitedly roared, and the over thirty thunderwhales beside it also emitted an excited roar in response. Each of them stared at Teng Qingshan who stood on the bow of the tungsten wood vessel.
“Big Brother Teng, the King of Thunderwhales is very grateful.” Li Jun said with a smile, “It said that for a thousand years, this was the first time they got so many Iron Leaf Fruits in one go.
Teng Qingshan stared at the King of Thunderwhales amidst the sea and smiled, “Looks like the Iron Leaf Fruit is really very important to the Thunderwhales.”
Teng Qingshan jumped off the tungsten wood vessel and descended on the back of a thunderwhale. He then untied the iron rope on the thunderwhale’s dorsal fin.
Teng Qingshan and the King of Thunderwhales glanced at each other. The King of Thunderwhales then nodded towards Teng Qingshan. It then emitted a loud roar, and the over thirty thunderwhales all flapped their tails, causing a huge, white splash of water as they dived into the sea and left in a hurry.
“PaPa!” With the iron rope in hand, Teng Qingshan stomped the water twice and leapt up the deck.
Teng Qingshan and Li Jun stared at each other and smiled. Teng Qingshan then moved the huge long oars and piloted the tungsten wood vessel out of this region full of reefs.
“Walla~~~” After Teng Qingshan steered the tungsten wood vessel out of the region with groups of reefs, he hoisted the sail up.
A dark shadow in the distance darted towards the tungsten wood vessel.
“Eh?” Teng Qingshan frowned and looked over while Li Jun also noticed the dark shadow.
“Screech~~~” A loud screech came from the sky ahead of Teng Qingshan.
After scrutinizing for a while, Teng Qingshan noticed that the dark shadow was a big grey-colored eagle with the length of one zhang. It was only slightly smaller than the Blackgale Divine Condor. The feathers on the lower part of the grey-colored eagle’s body and the feathers on its neck were completely white, while the area between its eyes and brows were gold-colored.
It was a very handsome eagle.
“The demonic beast, Whole Gale Eagle.” With one glance, Teng Qingshan immediately recognized the demonic beast, “Among the eagle type demonic beasts, the Whole Gale Eagle was considered rather ordinary. Even the most powerful one of the Whole Gale Eagles could only reach the Hollow Dan of the Innate Realm and can only puff knife-like wind.” Teng Qingshan’s view of this world has broaden.
Indeed, Hollow Dan Innate Demonic Beast posed no threat to him.
“Screech~~Screech~~” The condor repeatedly screeched.
“Little Jun, what is it saying?” Teng Qingshan stared at Li Jun beside him. As Li Jun listened, her face revealed astonishment.
“Li Jun?” Teng Qingshan shouted.
Li Jun then came to her senses and blinked her eyes as she stared at Teng Qingshan. She then answered, “Big Brother Teng, I just heard what it said and I couldn’t believe it.”
“What did it say?” Teng Qingshan asked in confusion.
“It said…” Li Jun stared Teng Qingshan, “It hopes that we can give it some Iron Leaf Fruits.”
“For what? Why should we give it?” Teng Qingshan curiously asked.
Li Jun had a weird expression as she said, “The Whole Gale Eagle said that if we give it one Iron Leaf Fruit, it will be with us for one month and obey our words.” Teng Qingshan looked up at the Whole Gale Eagle and was very surprised. Demonic beasts were normally full of pride, but this Whole Gale Eagle was quite interesting.
“Ask it why.” Teng Qingshan was very confused.
He didn’t dare to believe it easily. If the Whole Gale Eagle ate a bunch of Iron Leaf Fruits and ran away with the flap of its wings, Teng Qingshan and Li Jun could only watch helplessly.
Because they couldn’t fly!
Li Jun began conversing with the Whole Gale Eagle in the sky, and the screeches they produced sounded very melodious.
Teng Qingshan stared at this scene and thought to himself, “The speed of the Whole Gale Eagle is extremely fast. If it travelled with us, it could carry Little Jun in the sky… I wouldn’t need it to battle. Its use would be similar to the use of the Blackgale Divine Condor! It would be a good thing if it travelled with us.”
After a while—
“Big Brother Teng.” Li Jun stared at Teng Qingshan and said with a smile, “The Iron Leaf Fruit has no use to Golden Dan Innate Demonic Beasts, but it is very useful to weak demonic beasts and has some use to Hollow Dan Innate Demonic Beasts.”
“On the Iron Leaf Island, the Blackgale Divine Condor controlled the Iron Leaf Fruit Tree and many demonic beasts obeyed it. The Blackgale Divine Condor would occasionally give the other demonic beasts one or two fruits. However, the Whole Gale Eagle was not very sociable and even fought with a few birds. These years, it wasn’t able to get even one fruit. Plus, it said that staying on this island was boring, thus, it wanted to travel with us while getting some fruits to eat.
When Teng Qingshan heard her, he couldn’t help but laugh as he said, “Looks like this Whole Gale Eagle doesn’t have a good relationship with the other demonic beasts.”
