Chapter 8: Parkour Event, Heavenly Path?

As he walked on the streets and listened to the peddlers shouting about their good things, passersby discussed among themselves, and Gong Ziliang also watched the show.
“Come, come, come. Candied haw for sale, I won’t charge if it’s not delicious.”
“Candy art, candy art, you can buy delicious candy characters!”
“Steamed buns! Fresh and juicy buns, three for one copper coin. Come over and try them!”!!
“Miss, look at this hairpin. It’s simply a perfect match for you. Each hairpin only costs one copper coin.”
“Little brother, I see that your bones are exquisite and your foundation is extraordinary. You are a martial arts genius that is hard to come by in a hundred years. I have a martial arts secret manual here. I think I am fated to sell it to you at half price. In the future, the mission to save the world will be completed by you!”
Halfway through, Gong Ziliang suddenly saw a beggar dressed in tattered clothes by the roadside. He held a tattered book in his hand and looked at Gong Ziliang. His eyes were filled with hope, as if Gong Ziliang was the person who was meant to save the world.
Gong Ziliang sized up this beggar from head to toe. He had dirty long hair, dirty clothes, dirty shirt, and dirty shorts. He cursed in his heart: F*ck, this old man, you’re in the wrong show!
The most outrageous thing was that the ‘martial arts secret manual’ in the beggar’s hand actually wrote: Sunflower Manual…
Gong Ziliang rolled his eyes. Just as he walked away, he heard this beggar tricking another little brother. The problem was… that little brother really bought it!
This was too realistic.
When Gong Ziliang continued walking forward, he suddenly saw a black-clothed man in the alley. His face was covered, and he actually stretched out his palm to knock out a little boy. After that, he used a sack to carry him away.
This continuous action was not sloppy at all. It was very fast, and it was obvious that it was professional.
Gong Ziliang’s conscience jolted. He actually kidnapped children in broad daylight!
Even if everyone else could ignore this, Gong Ziliang could not endure it. He hated this kind of trash the most.
Therefore, when Gong Ziliang saw that the black-clothed man was about to leave with the sack, he immediately chased after him.
The black-clothed person sensed something and immediately quickened his footsteps. With his understanding of Cloud Glow City, he knew all the small paths that could dodge the pursuit of others.
That’s right, the black-clothed person was so confident.
However, in the eyes of Gong Ziliang, who was at the sixth-stage Martial Body Realm, this was all a dream.
Gong Ziliang immediately shouted, “Kid, why do you have to steal children? I think you’re tired of living!”
“Don’t think that just because you’re a cultivator that you want to uphold justice. I advise you not to meddle in other people’s business. Otherwise, you’ll face a fatal calamity!”
The black-clothed person said fiercely and secretly glanced at Gong Ziliang behind him.
Someone from the Profound Heaven Sect?
Could it be…
Damn you! Why did it have to be someone from the Profound Heaven Sect?
When the black-clothed person confirmed that Gong Ziliang was from the Profound Heaven Sect, his heart almost stopped.
The people he did not want to see and could not see were those from the medium-grade sect, the Profound Heaven Sect.
The man in black cursed. As soon as he finished speaking, he kicked his feet hard and jumped onto the roof. He ran quickly on the roof and jumped over one house after another.
“This is it?”
Gong Ziliang smiled disdainfully and followed the black-clothed person up to the roof, following closely behind.
As a sixth-stage Martial Body cultivator, it was a piece of cake for him to face this kind of flying. Running on the roof was no different from running on flat ground. He could even run faster.
After all, he had personally seen this black-clothed man use a burlap bag to lure this little boy away. Moreover, he had even spoken ruthlessly to Gong Ziliang. He could not take this lying down.
At this moment, the pleasant female voice of the Legendary System suddenly sounded in Gong Ziliang’s ears.
[Ding! The Parkour Event on Thursday will begin in 1 minute. Please be prepared!]
As Gong Ziliang chased after the black-clothed person, he was still thinking, what the heck was this Parkour Event? Could it be the “Parkour Everyday” game that he knew in his previous life?
Out of curiosity, Gong Ziliang summoned the game interface. He immediately discovered that under the golden “event” icon, there was a minute countdown in red words.
After clicking on one, it was divided into five choices.
They were the Gold Farming Event every night at 8pm, the Parkour Event every Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday, as well as the Bubble Point Event every Monday, Wednesday and Friday.
There was also another powerful sounding one, World Boss Event!
The fifth column was: Soon!
He clicked on it. The system did not forget to remind him to level up. There was another important thing. Yes, he had to charge more money!
What Gong Ziliang was thinking was, could this activity be like a gold farming event that would send him into the game world?
“Am I chasing pointlessly now?” Gong Ziliang asked himself.
At this moment, the voice of the Legendary System sounded in his ears again.
[Today’s parkour location is: White Cloud Kingdom’s Cloud Glow City.]
[If you run around casually (parkour) in Cloud Glow City, you can directly obtain experience, copper coins, ingots, equipment, and items!]
[The Parkour Event will last for ten minutes…]
Upon seeing this, Gong Ziliang was overjoyed. As long as he ran around casually, he could directly obtain experience, currency, and so on. Furthermore, it would last for an entire ten minutes.
If he wasted a large amount of experience in these ten minutes, would he still be far from breaking through to the seventh-stage Martial Body Realm?
Moreover, this Parkour Event was really timely. Now, Gong Ziliang was chasing after the black-clothed person and running on the roof. Wasn’t this basically considered parkour?
Heaven was really helping him!
One minute passed very quickly. At this moment, a notification sounded in Gong Ziliang’s mind.
[Ding! The Parkour Event has begun. It will last for ten minutes. Start!]
Not long after, the notification sound gradually sounded.
[Ding! You obtained 10 ingots from participating in the Parkour Event.]
[Ding! You obtained 10,000 copper coins from participating in the Parkour Event.]
[Ding! You have obtained 1% current level EXP from participating in the Parkour Event.]
[Ding! You obtained 10 Small Revitalizing Pills from participating in the Parkour Event.]
[Ding! You have obtained a low-level Experience Pill from participating in the Parkour Event.]
Listening to the words of the girl voice of the Legendary System, Gong Ziliang felt very happy!
Originally, he wanted to quickly knock down the black-clothed man in front of him and save the boy, but now…
Gong Ziliang wanted to wait for ten minutes before going to deal with the black-clothed person after this Parkour Event ended.
After all, free stuff was really good!
As the two of them ran on the roof, they attracted the attention of ordinary people. Of course, there were also the guards of Cloud Glow City.
“Look, look, those two are so awesome!”
“There’s nothing they can’t do. This is what a cultivator should be!”
“Why do I feel that they’re even more powerful than the guards of our Cloud Glow City? Every action of theirs is so light, especially that young man behind them. He’s quite handsome.”
(Gong Ziliang’s inner thought: Hmm? I feel like someone is praising me behind my back!)
“This outfit looks like it’s from some righteous sect. His movements are light like a dragonfly touching the water. Although it’s strange, I feel like he’s chasing after the black-clothed person in front.”
“Nonsense. He’s wearing a black night suit in broad daylight and covering his face. He’s either a fool or doing something bad.”
“Eh! That’s quite reasonable. That young man is definitely upholding justice.”
“Wait! That black-clothed man is still carrying a sack, and that handsome guy is chasing after him. Could it be… someone from the Heavenly Path?”
“What! Those bastards from the Heavenly Path are here again?!”
