Book 9 Chapter 32 Scarlet Fruit Wine
“In the past, when Qingyu drank the Scarlet Fruit Wine, her strength increased by two-to-three-thousand Jin. Qinghu also drank the Scarlet Fruit Wine and his strength increased by eight thousand Jin.” When Teng Qingshan drank the Scarlet Fruit Wine, his strength increased by twenty thousand Jin. The effect of the Scarlet Fruit Wine obviously had something to do with the constitution of the consumer.
“However, it’s also weird that the Scarlet Fruit Wine is not recorded in the book,” Teng Qingshan thought to himself.
Actually, it wasn’t weird at all. The Postliminary Realm Experts only went to the Steeled Arm Monkey Mountain to pluck the Scarlet Fruit. None of them had the audacity to enter the lair of the monkeys. Even the ordinary Golden Dan Innate Experts would feel terrified if they were to face a large number of monkeys as well as the Monkey King. Only the Emptiness Realm Experts dared to charge into the lair of the monkeys, but the number of Emptiness Realm Experts were too few in the Land of the Nine Prefectures.
Would the Emptiness Realm Experts go to the Steeled Arm Monkey Mountain? They didn’t even know the existence of the ‘Scarlet Fruit Wine.’
Even if they did, the Emptiness Realm Experts might not even care as the Scarlet Fruit Wine would only increase their strength by two-to-three-thousand Jin.
“However, the Scarlet Fruit Wine is different for me!”
“I will need it when I establish a sect that cultivates Internal Martial Arts. A strong physique is one of the requirements for cultivators of the Internal Martial Arts. Cultivators with a stronger physique will absorb the Scarlet Fruit Wine even more effectively, resulting in the drastic acceleration of one’s fist art.” Teng Qingshan was still pondering when Xue Xin- who was at the side- whispered, “Teacher..Teacher.. Their discussion ended.”
“Oh.” Teng Qingshan smiled.
“Haha. Old Third of the Wang Clan, we won’t be sending you off,” Yang Dong said. His laughter resonated.
“Let’s head over,” Teng Qingshan instructed. Immediately, Xue Xin followed Teng Qingshan and approached.
Under the light of the torches, Yang Dong’s eyes beamed with valiance. He observed the survived members of the Nine Wolf Gang which he had just taken in and declared, “Brothers, the Xiong Shou Gang is not the gang with the most members in this Tai Ah Mountain Range. However, the members of this gang are the most courageous men in the entire mountain range! We are also known to be best at protecting our own members even if they are at fault!”
“I won’t say much. If you are part of our gang, then you are my brother.”
“Of course, the Xiong Shou Gang requires you all to be as ferocious as beasts. We want courageous men. We don’t want any weak bitches.” Yang Dong guffawed, “Now, let’s go drink together. The warm beds, busty girls, and big jars of good wine I have prepared are just waiting for you guys.”
Immediately, clamors and cheers echoed in the vicinity. The cheers of the gang members were like the howls of beasts.
“Let’s go.” Yang Dong waved his hand. Immediately, a big group of people followed him.
“Junior Martial Brother.” The person who had been quiet at the side spoke. It was most ferocious-looking man in the entire Xiong Shou Gang—Teng Shou. He nudged Yang Dong’s arm as he called out.
Yang Dong froze for a second. His eyes followed the direction in which Teng Shou was pointing towards. Under the light of the torches, two figures could vaguely be seen.
When Yang Dong saw who was approaching, he immediately felt elated as he called out, “Teacher!”
“Yang Zi, lead the way for them first. The Great Leader and I will come later,” Yang Dong instructed.
“Alright. Great Leader, Second Leader. You two better come soon, otherwise, the other brothers will finish the wine and meat.”
“Got it!” Yang Dong shouted as he waved his hand.
Now, Yang Dong apparently sounded slightly like a native of Yangzhou. When the big group of people left, Yang Dong and Teng Shou paced towards Teng Qingshan.
“Teacher.” Yang Dong and Teng Shou bowed respectfully.
Teng Qingshan stared at the two disciples and smiled. He pointed at Xue Xin, who was beside him and said, “Ah Dong and Ah Shou, the person beside me is your Third Junior Martial Brother. His name is Xue Xin.” He then turned to Xue Xin and introduced, “Xue Xin, they are your Senior Martial Brothers… The smaller one is your Second Senior Martial Brother, Yang Dong, while this is your Great Martial Brother, Teng Shou.”
“This Junior Martial Brother greets Great Martial Brother and Second Senior Martial Brother,” Xue Xin immediately greeted respectfully.
As always, Teng Shou was very quiet. He only responded with a nod. The corners of his mouth quirked up slightly. It seemed as though he was smiling.
“Haha, Third Junior Martial Brother,” Yang Dong said warmly as he gave Xue Xin a hug. “Third Junior Martial Brother, we are brothers now. If there’s anything you need, just tell me. I will settle everything for you.” Yang Dong sounded just like a bandit. He had joined the bandit gang since he was young, and now, he had returned to his former self.
“Hmph.” Teng Qingshan frowned.
Yang Dong shuddered slightly. He glanced at Teng Qingshan and laughed ingratiatingly as he greeted, “Teacher.”
“Alright,” Teng Qingshan then responded and proceeded to question, “How is the Xiong Shou Gang?”
“The Xiong Shou Gang has merely around three thousand members. However, our gang is now the most intrepid and strongest gang in the entire Tai Ah Mountain Range.” Yang Dong beamed proudly and said, “Teacher, you didn’t see it with your own eyes… During the battle that made the Xiong Shou Gang famous, Great Martial Brother was exceedingly fierce. He even ate human meat! Those people were so scared that they almost peed their pants. Now, if Xiong Shou- the name of the Great Leader of the Xiong Shou Gang- was mentioned, almost everyone in the Tai Ah Mountain Range would know.
Teng Qingshan froze.
Ate human meat?
His brows knitted as he fixed his eyes upon Teng Shou.
“Teacher.” Teng Shou lowered his head before Teng Qingshan.
Teng Qingshan sighed. His great disciple had been a slave that grew up amongst beasts. His habits should be the same as that of the beasts and he had probably eaten human meat in the past. During this battle which pushed the Xiong Shou Gang into fame, his great disciple probably killed people to the point where he had lost his mind, which was why he ate human meat.
“Don’t ever eat human meat again,” Teng Qingshan ordered strictly.
“Understood, Teacher.” Teng Shou didn’t dare to argue.
Of the three disciples accepted by Teng Qingshan, the Great Disciple was loved the most by Teng Qingshan.
“Ah Shou, how is your fist art?” Teng Qingshan inquired, “How is your Junior Martial Brother’s sword art?” Teng Qingshan wouldn’t ask Yang Dong. Of the three disciples he had, Yang Dong was the most cunning.
Teng Shou answered honestly, “Teacher, I still feel that something is missing from my fist art. However, I now possess a physical strength of over two hundred thousand Jin.”
“Good,” Teng Qingshan nodded with satisfaction. The Great Disciple’s Internal Martial Art was improving at an extremely rapid speed. He was indeed making fast progress.
“Two hundred thousand Jin?” At the side, the third disciple Xue Xin was secretly shocked. He stealthily glanced at the Great Martial Brother in disbelief. He couldn’t believe that this young-looking Great Martial Brother would really be this powerful.
“Second Disciple’s sword art had made great progress.” Teng Shou continued answering, “Even I would suffer if I wasn’t careful. Second Junior Martial Brother practiced his sword art arduously every morning and night.”
At the side, Yang Dong secretly flicked a glance at Teng Qingshan. Seeing that Teng Qingshan finally gave him a smile, Yang Dong then felt a sense of relief.
“You guys did well.” Teng Qingshan nodded with a smile as he said, “Alright, I should be leaving then… By the way, Ah Dong, Ah Shou. I am living in the Nine Wolf Island situated to the west of the Tai Ah Mountain Range. You guys can find me there if you need me.”
“The Nine Wolf Island?” Teng Shou and Yang Dong felt surprised and delighted at the same time.
“Teacher.” Yang Dong couldn’t help but exclaimed in shock, “The Silver Dragon Guards were the ones that eradicated the Nine Wolf Gang. Was it because of you? But Teacher, you and Qing Hu island seem to be…” Yang Dong and Teng Shou knew well that Teng Qingshan held a deep grudge against the Qing Hu Island. This time, they had returned just to target Qing Hu Island.
“Yes,” Teng Qingshan nodded as he replied, “I have another identity name ‘Jing Yi’ now.”
“The Jing Yi who had stirred up a ruckus in Qing Hu Island?” Yang Dong and Teng Shou both appeared shocked. They had heard of the rumors of Jing Yi recently, but they had no idea that Jing Yi was actually Teng Qingshan. Teng Qingshan did not tell those two about what he had been doing.
“Alright. Be at ease here.” Teng Qingshan instructed, “If you need anything, just find me on the island. Remember to visit me in three or four days.”
“Understood Teacher,” Yang Dong and Teng Shou answered.
Immediately, Teng Qingshan lifted his head and emitted a high-pitched whistle.
“Rumble~~” A fierce stream of air gushed down from a high altitude. Teng Qingshan grabbed Xue Xin and leaped a height of seventy-to-eighty Zhang. He then descended on the back of the Six Legged Bladelike Chi, who was rocketing downwards. The wings of the Six Legged Bladelike Chi flapped as it then streaked across the sky and soared towards the Nine Wolf Island.
On that very same night, Teng Qingshan dwelled on the Nine Wolf Island. As for Xue Xin, he lived in the house beside Teng Qingshan’s residence.
It was very late at night and was a completely silent on the Nine Wolf Island and only the sounds of the waves beating against the shore could be heard.
Within the serene house whereTeng Qingshan dwelled:
Dressed in loose inner garments, Teng Qingshan’s face beamed with joy. He dashed out of the room and looked up at the sky.
“Screech~~” A loud bird cry sounded up high.
A snowy white divine condor plummeted down from a high altitude. The huge Divine Condor’s entire body was white and only the feathers on its head were fiery red in color. A lady, dressed in a light blue cloak, sat cross-legged on its back. Beside this snowy white divine condor was an enormous condor that appeared very inconspicuous in the dark night.
TLN: Divine Eagles will now be changed to Divine Condors. Sorry for any inconveniences caused.
A strong gust of wind blew as the black and white Divine Condors descended in the courtyard.
“Qingshan.” Li Jun leaped off the Divine Condor. She ran over in excitement and hugged Teng Qingshan.
“Little Jun.” Teng Qingshan held his wife in his arms.
After days of not seeing Little Jun, Teng Qingshan felt that he really missed Little Jun. As the saying went, absence makes the heart grow fonder… Immediately, they embraced each other closely and drowned in the carnal pleasure for quite a long time.
On the bed:
Teng Qingshan leaned on the bed frame, while Li Jun laid in his arms.
“Little Jun, how did you find this place?” It was only at this moment, Teng Qingshan asked.
“Didn’t you tell me that you were going to fight the Qing Hu Island? And so, I knew that Jing Yi was you.” Li Jun snorted naughtily and continued explaining, “I went to the Jing Residence in Wuan County, but I didn’t find you there. Following this, I recalled that the Silver Dragon Guards of the Qing Hu Island were going to attack the Nine Wolf Island… When I received news of Qing Hu Island’s actions, I wondered why they attacked the Nine Wolf Island without any reason. Coincidentally, it happened right after you stirred up a ruckus in Qing Hu Island! Moreover, you weren’t in the Jing Residence, so I thought you might be here. Therefore, I rode White and rapidly flew over here.
Teng Qingshan couldn’t help but erupt in laughter.
“It’s good that you came.” Teng Qingshan grinned and said, “Coincidentally, there’s something I need you to help me with.”
“What is it?” Li Jun asked puzzledly.
“Do you remember when I settled you down in Wuan County City in the past, I went to the Desolate Land?” Teng Qingshan laughed and said, “The reason why I went to the Desolate Land was so I could go to the Steeled Arm Monkey Mountain and search for the Scarlet Fruit! I also told you about the entire process of my search for the Scarlet Fruit and my voyage in the North Sea.”
“Are you talking about those monkeys that dwelled within the Steeled Arm Monkey Mountain?” Li Jun nodded quickly. She knew well that Teng Qingshan encountered a crisis that time. In order to save himself, Teng Qingshan leapt off the cliff and almost died.
“Yes, I am going to collect the Scarlet Fruit Wine.” Teng Qingshan smiled and said, “There is a stone pit filled with a great amount of Scarlet Fruit Wine. I don’t know how long those monkeys had been accumulating the Scarlet Fruit Wine.”
“Scarlet Fruit Wine. What a good idea!” Li Jun’s eyes beamed as she exclaimed.
“Now that you are here, it makes everything even better.” Teng Qingshan pondered and said, “That Golden Eyed Monkey King…is very powerful. With my skills and your understanding of the Language of Beasts, we can try to tame this Golden Eyed Monkey King. If we manage to subdue this Golden Eyed Monkey King, all the monkeys would yield. At that time, we can even find out how it knew the secret recipe of the Scarlet Fruit Wine.
