Chapter 2: Bloodthirsty Gu
Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
Penta-Poison Gu? It sounded like a Gu refined from five poisons.
But what was the situation with this Bloodthirsty Gu?
Zhou Feng began to calculate in his heart which Gu he should choose to plant in his body.
If one used the Penta-Poison Gu’s name as a reference, it must be a Gu refined from five poisons.!!
Zhou Feng had also come into contact with some information about Gu in his previous life. However, he was in the dark as to what kind of Gu this Bloodthirsty Gu was.
Since Zhou Feng had no information, he could only make blind guesses.
Most importantly… when would he be able to eat!?
After waiting for a while, the huge stream of people in the front dissipated bit by bit.
The people in the front had already finished planting the Gu, and they were taken to different places.
Finally, it was Zhou Feng’s turn.
Zhou Feng was about to say that he wanted to choose the Penta-Poison Gu, but someone interrupted him before he could say anything.
“His foundation is not bad! I want this person.”
A 1.9-meter-tall man gave him a simple glance, causing Zhou Feng to swallow his words.
Then, an extremely small blood-red worm flew to Zhou Feng’s wrist and bit it lightly.
The skin on his wrist was instantly bitten open, and the Bloodthirsty Gu drilled in and moved slowly along the blood vessels.
That feeling was simply terrifying.
Zhou Feng saw a protrusion in his arm with his own eyes—it was slowly crawling toward his heart!
This Gu-planting process was considered completed.
After planting the Gu, Zhou Feng walked to the side.
During the whole process, he had not even had the chance to choose. They had forcefully planted the Bloodthirst Gu in his body.
Zhou Feng had no other choice but to stand at the side and wait.
‘Wait! Why am I feeling dizzy?’
Zhou Feng felt that his body was not using much strength, yet he almost fainted on the ground.
At the same time, his stomach began to growl.
What was going on?
If he had reached the stage of numbness and had been too hungry earlier, then he now felt that his stomach was going to swallow him up.
The cells in his body seemed to be shouting, “I want to eat!”
“There are almost enough people!”
Wei He glanced at the people in the queue behind him and found that they were all as thin as sticks. There was not even a good seedling.
In addition to the lack of resources recently, they could only train so many people this year. Thus, the Bloodthirsty Gu faction left.
As for the person in charge of the Penta-Poison Gu faction, he did not mind. He did not reject anyone and planted the Penta-Poison Gu in everyone behind him.
Wei He, the brawny man who had planted the Bloodthirsty Gu in Zhou Feng, would be their instructor from today onward.
At present, he was leading the group he had selected up the mountain.
Zhou Feng endured his hunger and started to observe his surroundings. He discovered that the people who had joined the Bloodthirsty Gu faction were all tall and brawny. Even the skinny Zhou Feng had a thick skeleton.
As for the Penta-Poison Gu faction, there were no selection criteria. There were all kinds of people among them, fat, short, tall, skinny, and so on.
“No! Why is my hand so cold!?” Zhou Feng touched his hand and found it was very cold.
At the same time, his vision turned dark. This seemed to be a symptom of anemia!
‘I should not be anemic! What’s going on?’
Zhou Feng immediately placed his suspicion on the Bloodthirsty Gu that had just taken root in his body.
‘The Bloodthirsty Gu is sucking my blood!?’
Zhou Feng reached a shocking conclusion.
This Bloodthirsty Gu was really like its name. It directly sucked human blood!
No wonder the Bloodthirsty Gu faction chose people who were taller and stronger. If they were weaker, they would not be able to withstand it.
That’s right! This Bloodthirsty Gu was a type of Gu that absorbed Blood Qi to grow.
Every time the Bloodthirsty Gu absorbed a certain amount of Blood Qi, it would send purer Blood Qi back to its host.
This purer Blood Qi could produce a large amount of Blood Qi to the host’s body.
However, this was only the beginning.
If this Bloodthirsty Gu only had benefits and no disadvantages, then it would not be planted in Zhou Feng and the other new disciples.
This Bloodthirsty Gu was like a vampire. At the start, the Blood Qi it absorbed would be relatively small, still within an acceptable range. As the Bloodthirsty Gu grew, however, the speed at which it absorbed Blood Qi would also become faster and faster.
Under such circumstances, one could only cultivate with techniques that strengthened their Blood Qi to counter the Bloodthirsty Gu’s absorption speed.
Unfortunately, no matter how much one cultivated or supplemented it, they would not be able to resist the Bloodthirsty Gu’s absorption speed one day. In the end, the Bloodthirsty Gu would suck them dry.
When the host died, the Bloodthirsty Gu, as a symbiotic Gu, would also die instantly. The dead Bloodthirsty Gu was an excellent tonic after using a special refining method. It could also become a unique pill.
At that time, whether one used to refine other pills or directly swallowed it, it would be a good choice.
Of course, this Bloodthirsty Pill was the best food for similar Bloodthirsty Gu.
After a Bloodthirsty Gu swallowed enough Bloodthirsty Pills, it would become a Bloodthirsty Gu King.
As for the Penta-Poison Gu, they were similar, directly using these new disciples as nourishment.
Zhou Feng was not interested in any of this right now because the Bloodthirsty Gu was constantly absorbing his heart’s blood and Qi.
He was already starving to death, and if he did not eat, he would faint from low blood sugar.
Meanwhile, the other people who had just acquired the Bloodthirsty Gu did not fare any better. Their faces were pale, looking dispirited.
Fortunately, Wei He had already predicted this would happen. Well, it could be said that all the new disciples would face this situation every year.
“Come! This is a Blood Replenishing Pill! Everyone will take one!”
Wei He took a gourd from somewhere and poured dark red pills out of the gourd.
Zhou Feng, who had taken the Blood Replenishing Pill, did not suspect whether it was poisonous or not and directly swallowed it.
After ingesting the Blood Replenishing Pill, pure Qi and blood flowed into his limbs and bones. His growling stomach was slightly alleviated as well.
Nevertheless, Zhou Feng could still feel that the Bloodthirsty Gu in the center of his heart was still absorbing his Blood Qi.
“All of you will go to get your tokens and clothes later! Most of you will receive the Bloodthirsty Gu’s first reverse-feeding tonight!
“Don’t be too surprised. This is a normal phenomenon!”
Wei He looked around and started to explain some things.
From today onward, they could be considered as the Tri-Gu Sect’s outer disciples.
Zhou Feng knew very little about this world, so he listened seriously.
He gave a simple summary of Wei He’s words.
In simple terms, once one became the Tri-Gu Sect’s outer disciple, they could start cultivating.
After Zhou Feng received his clothes and token, he would be able to obtain a cultivation technique.
The most important thing was that he could eat for free. Joining the Bloodthirsty Gu faction had one great benefit, which was to have a dining hall.
They could eat all they wanted in the dining hall, free of charge!
‘This is no different than raising us like pigs, isn’t it!?’
At that thought, coupled with the Bloodthirsty Gu’s crazy absorption of Blood Qi, Zhou Feng’s expression turned slightly ugly.
He used his clever little brain to think.
‘In an evil sect, you can eat and drink for free? How could there be such a free meal in the world?
‘Isn’t this just raising pigs? Once they are fat, you kill them!’
