“So what are you doing here at Korin Tower? Don’t tell me that you have come to see an old friend. Because I don’t think you’re that kind of person!” Holding the staff in his hands, Korin took two-steps forward and stared fiercely at Xiaya. Every time this Xiaya looks for him, his purpose doesn’t seem to be pure ah!
“You can’t say that!”
He laughed embarrassedly as if his cover was blown. Xiaya’s expression was somewhat stiff as he swayed his finger in the air, and a dimensional door appeared in the air, before a large amount of packed fresh seafood fell down from inside.
Immediately, seafood’s fishy smell pervaded the Korin Tower.
“Immortal Korin, look I have brought you all these seafood as a gift.” Xiaya pointed at the ground full of seafood.
Korin dropped his staff and moved closer to the fish seafood in front of him. His nose sniffed as he repeatedly praised: “Hahaha, I haven’t smelled fresh fish for a long time.”
Korin had not left Korin Tower for hundreds of years and had almost forgotten the taste of fish. At this time, as he suddenly saw all kinds of big fishes, he was extremely excited.
With a cough, Korin said in a solemn tone: “Cough, cough, good. I have seen your sincerity, there are seldom any people who still think about this old man…”
“Well, can Immortal Korin let me have a look at the senzu beans plant? Of course, I’m not trying to take away senzu beans, I just want to take a look.”
Korin shoot a glance at Xiaya, but he had already collected so many fresh fishes from Xiaya, so he couldn’t be unhelpful. As they say, if you receive something from someone, then you would naturally have to give back something*. Anyway, senzu beans plant was not some secret, so he nodded.
[TL: *After dinner comes the reckoning.]
“Come with me!”
Then, Korin led the way as he headed to the second floor of the Korin Tower, by passing through winding passageway hanging outside the tower. Xiaya and Korin came to the oblate spheroid building on second floor of the Korin Tower.
This is where Korin lives and train martial artists, so the area here compared to the first floor was bigger. An exquisitely shaped water pot was placed at the center of a stone block.
“This is where Korin had trained Son Goku in the original work.”
Observing this, Xiaya quickly reacted.
Korin Tower’s second floor was quite spacious compared to the first floor, but based on Korin Tower’s oblate spheroid shape, Xiaya speculates that Korin Tower should still have a hidden third floor.
At this time, Xiaya noticed three big water jars lined up in a corner. He had also noticed these three water jars when he first came to Korin Tower several years ago.
His thoughts couldn’t help but fly around, he remembered that Korin uses water jars to observe the lower realms, could it be this three? Legend has it that they can be used to observe past, present, and future; three different scenes.
“What are those three water jars?” Xiaya asked.
“Oh, the two, left and right, are just filled with ordinary drinking water. While I use the middle jar to observe the lower realm.”
Korin stroked his whiskers while grabbing a fish with his hand. Devouring it in two to three bites, he answered without caring at all.
So, it turns out they do not have the capability to look at past and future!
After hearing him, Xiaya nodded, indeed, predicting future is a very mysterious thing, how can it be easily revealed? Ceasing his thinking, Xiaya looked at Korin with shining eyes and asked him where senzu beans were planted.
At that time, Korin’s body agilely jumped up, and the staff in his hand struck a dark gold stone pillar in the tower, and then his body flips over, his staff slightly touching the roof. A 1m square passageway suddenly opened on the smooth ceiling.
Sure enough, there really is some secret inside! Xiaya’s eyes flashed with a slight gleam, and then unperturbedly followed behind Korin.
“Follow me up there, senzu beans are planted above!”
Korin’s obese body entered the third floor of Korin Tower, and Xiaya immediately followed next and entered the hidden third floor.
Upon entering, Xiaya discovered that the third floor was much more spacious than he imagined. Somehow, bright sunshine was shining down from the roof of the opaque tower. At the center of the tower’s roof, there was a sacred blue stone cone hanging down while small glittering and translucent liquid drops dripped down from above, falling into the glass pot underneath.
“The glass pot contains Ultra Divine Water. It is not easy to condensate Ultra Divine Water. In one year, I can only get about a small pot’s worth. Therefore, the output of Senzu Beans has never increased.”
That small pot contains Ultra Divine Water? Hearing him, Xiaya couldn’t help but become somewhat curious. He stepped forward wanting to see what Ultra Divine Water looked like. He saw that Ultra Divine Water was clear and glistening with a purple speck. Smelling, he understood that it was no different from ordinary drinking water.
However, this Ultra Divine Water was produced by condensing the Ki of gods over many years, and it can draw out potential, but for ordinary people, it was a highly toxic substance.
Senzu Beans are planted using Ultra Divine Water to irrigate. No wonder, Senzu Bean has such a magical effects. So, Senzu Bean’s planting is also a knowledge. It is indeed not an easy task to transform the highly toxic Ultra Divine Water into healing medicine.
“Be careful, this Ultra Divine Water is highly toxic, ordinary people can not recklessly touch it.” Korin glanced at Xiaya and kindly reminded.
Hearing him, Xiaya put back the Ultra Divine Water to its original place and turned around to look for the place where Senzu Beans were planted. However, he looked around everywhere but did not find the whereabouts of Senzu Beans.
“So, Immortal Korin, where are your Senzu Beans planted?”
“Come with me. Senzu Beans are planted in a place where the sunshine is most abundant.”
Korin responded and then went behind a screen where Xiaya saw a small piece of land that had been plowed. It was only a one or two square meters in size, and around it, few flower pots which had Senzu Beans growing on it were placed.
Senzu Beans beanpole was much shorter than a legumes plant. A few dewdrops were attached to the emerald green leaves, seemingly looking lifelike under the sunshine, emitting sparkling green and fresh luster. On the branches, there were blooming purple flowers, and some already have formed pods.
However, the amount was very little!
“The output of Senzu Beans is indeed too little. In addition to irrigating with Ultra Divine Water, I need to continuously moisten them with fresh water. Planting process is very tedious. In one year, the output is only 100!”
Whenever he thinks of the more than 70,000 Senzu Beans that Xiaya took away, Korin can’t help but feel regret. It was the accumulated stockpile of more than 800 years, which was taken away by Xiaya all at once. In these recent few years, he had only been able to harvest a few hundred Senzu Beans.
However, he had personally given them all away, so regretting now was useless.
Feeling the helplessness in Korin’s tone, Xiaya brightly smiled. He had really gotten a big advantage in getting so many Senzu Beans. However, since he had already obtained this advantage in his hand, how can he still give it back.
“More than one hundred in a year is already a lot, so long as Immortal Korin can grow for a few years, the output will quickly accumulate.” Xiaya comforted with a smile on his face.
“It’s easy for you to say that!” Korin unhappily retorted.
Xiaya spoke with a smirk: “Recently, in the human world, there is something getting popular called Hoi-Poi Capsule which can be used to preserve food. Next time, I will bring you some.”
“Oh, I have also heard of that thing. You’d better fill it with fish next time you come.”
Korin’s eyes suddenly lit up and quickly said. After he finished speaking, he felt that he had lost his expert’s demeanor, so he immediately closed his mouth.
Regardless of whether it is Korin or something else, as long as it is a cat, it would like to eat fish. Xiaya snickered in his heart. However he ignored the fact that Korin has already not gone down the Korin Tower for hundreds of years, so he naturally cannot imagine Korin’s yearning for fish.
Xiaya looks at Korin, regarding his request he naturally promised as it was only a trivial matter for him.
After seeing senzu bean’s plant, Xiaya even more pines for mass planting senzu beans.
After all, there are many Saiyans on Planet Hongshan and senzu beans may be needed at any time. If the method of planting senzu beans can be popularized, then Planet Hongshan can also mass produce senzu beans. Then, they can use senzu beans as a strategic reserve or would also be good as a reward, but the premise is that Senzu Beans can be mass produced.
This is a tricky problem. Korin’s senzu beans are grown as if it was a small workshop, meticulous and yet cannot increase output.
The key point is still the problem of growing environment of Senzu Beans. Ultra Divine Water is condensed from the supernatural power, which I am afraid cannot be replaced by using ordinary scientific and technological means. Without Ultra Divine Water, there is no need to talk about growing senzu beans. Thinking of this, Xiaya’s eyebrows furrowed.
It seems that the mass planting of senzu beans has a long way to go and would not be realized for a while.
Then, Xiaya tossed these worries to the back of his head and again followed Korin back to the second floor. After seeing Korin carefully storing away all the seafood on the ground, Xiaya then chatted with him about training.
Xiaya's current skills have already exceeded Korin’s imagination, and his martial arts concept has also formulated its own set of theories. However, as an eminent teacher, Xiaya believes that Korin’s several hundred years experienced insights must be unique. Perhaps, Korin can see some problems that he had overlooked.
The so-called a leaf before the eye shuts out Mount Tai*, it is often easy to overlook some details which are a common-sense. Sometimes, one needs to accept others opinions.
[TL: * Have one’s view of the important overshadowed by the trival]
Korin’s personal strength may not be strong, but it is precisely because of that he has been deeply working hard on his foundation for many years. Therefore, the accumulated theoretical knowledge cannot be ignored and Xiaya had looked for Korin. Then, as expected, under Korin’s sorting out, Xiaya found some things which he had overlooked, then he focused on these problems and one by one corrected them, making his martial arts more smooth and perfect.
After saying goodbye to Korin, Xiaya jumped off the Korin Tower and flew in the direction of West City.
Looking at Xiaya's receding back, Korin stood beside the fence of Korin Tower and looked at the vast clear sky with narrowed eyes, "Xiaya, this guy is getting more and more unfathomable like a sea, except for the waves in the sea, its boundary cannot be seen at all.”
In a remote village, a rugged trail snaked up and down around a mountain.
This is a simple village that is far away from the hustle and bustle of the city.
At this time, a series of smashing sounds broke the tranquility of the mountain village. A group of bandits was swinging broadswords everywhere, burning, robbing and pillaging. The innocent villagers were dying under the bandit’s cruel broadswords.
“Old man, where are you running away? Quickly hand over the thing you are holding!” A muscular man with a sinister face attacked at a hunched old man, cutting down several times with the sword before snatching the bundle which that old man firmly held in his arms with the other hand.
“Grandpa, Grandpa!” A mournful cry appeared, and a blue-haired little girl rushed towards the old man who had fallen to the ground while bitterly crying.
When the bandits saw this, they cruelly laughed “ha ha ha”, and opened the bundle they had snatched to check it out. Inside was a wooden can, shaking it, they could hear the sound of coins rattling from inside.
“Hahaha, there is a lot of money! Hey, little girl don’t cry, and let us see if you have any such cans!" Several bandits glanced at each other, and while licking their lips, picked up the bloody swords and walked forward. Under the sunshine shining down, the chilly knife glimmered with a frigid dazzling gleam.
With tears in her eyes, the blue-haired girl hatefully looked at the bandits, somehow her silky blue hair suddenly turned into gold, and a fierce expression appeared in her eyes.
Those bandits were startled by the sudden changes in the little girl. The bandit leader took a step back and then spat out feeling embarrassed. He then stormed towards the little girl, turning angry from embarrassment.
At that time a bang sound appeared. Unexpectedly, that little girl abruptly agilely hit that bandit leader, knocking him to the ground, and then she dashed into a small wooden house.
“What are you looking at? Hurry up and catch that little girl for me, pei!" The bandit leader fiercely berated. Those subordinates complexions were icy as they revealed a cruel glint and then rushed towards the small wooden house while yelling and screaming.
At this time, the door of the wooden house was opened, and the bandits rushed forward, fearing that their prey would be robbed by others. But suddenly the bandits revealed a terrified expression and every one of them retreated backward.
They saw the little girl walk out holding a long submachine gun that was same as her height.
“What are you afraid of? She is just a little girl, she wouldn’t know how to shoot!”
The bandit leader continued berating, but his subordinates were hesitant after seeing the submachine gun and didn’t dare to rashly step forward.
A furious expression flashed through his eyes, the bandit leader was very displeased. His cruel eyes stared at his subordinates, and then he himself stepped forward. "Little girl, obediently put down the thing in your hand, maybe I can still leave you with an intact corpse, otherwise……”
His obscene eyes perversely swept over the girl’s body. What a pity, this little girl is still a bit small, her body hasn’t grown enough. Otherwise,… hehe, that bandit leader let his imagination run wild.
“Pei! Calling me a little girl, but still, dare to look at me with such eyes!” Suddenly, the little girl whose hair had turned blond exploded out with words completely unsuitable for her age, she then spat out, raised the machine gun with both hands and began to fire!
Du du du, a intense gunfire sounds appeared and a half-inch fire snake was ejected from the barrel, the bandit leader had no time to react before he was turned into a sieve by the crackling bullets, miserably falling to the ground.
“Not good, that little girl has really fired, leader has been shot dead!”
Suddenly, the crowd became agitated. The bandits were completely frightened, how can a broadsword fight against a machine gun. So, with a mournful cry, everyone died under the blond girl’s gun.
After shooting the whole group of bandits dead, the blonde girl walked over in front of her grandpa’s corpse. There was a sad look in her eyes. “Old man, you weren’t willing to prepare more pistols. If I hadn’t hid a machine gun before, I would also have to follow you to Underworld.”
“Humph, these bandits have all been finished off by me, it could be considered to be revenge for you, achoo…” The girl sneezed and her hair turned blue again. The girl was full of fear as she looked at the bloody machine gun in her hand and corpses everywhere.
Clang! Throwing the machine gun on the ground, the blue-haired girl fell to the ground and burst into tears.
At night, the blue-haired girl dug up a grave for her family members and then dealing with the stuff, prepared to leave the mountain village. A cold wind blew, the girl shrank her neck, her thin body couldn’t resist the cold of the night.
West City, one of the most prosperous cities on earth.
The headquarters of Capsule Corporation which was a worldwide corporation is located here.
Under the warm sunshine and clear breeze, Xiaya's figure landed on a street of the city. The people on both sides of the street were continuously coming and going, while floating cars were moving at high speed. Everyone turned a blind eye to the sudden appearance of Xiaya.
They do not seem to know that there was suddenly one more person in their midst.
Xiaya was walking on the asphalt paved road, he smelled the air permeating the city, but does not find the smell of industrial waste’s pollution.
“It seems that this West City has development pretty good, it is free from the environmental pollution from city construction!” Xiaya deduced, clear in his heart.
Generally speaking, a city’s development is often accompanied by damage to the environment. This is a relatively low-level development model, and West City was clearly free from this stage. From seeing the greenery on both sides of the road, humans here were conscious and avoids environmental damage.
West City was even more prosperous than it was three years ago.
Easily finding Bulma’s home, Xiaya sneaked into the small warehouse in the backyard, and quietly returned the 2-star ball to its original spot before preparing to leave.
