Chapter Ch11 - Gathering of Spiritual Qi
Yan Tianhen’s face changed immediately. He clenched his fist in secret and pretended to be calm as he said, “Those two tiger cubs have already been sold.”
Han Yanran was aghast and almost jumped up in shock. She widened her eyes and said, “Impossible! He already promised my Gege, how could he have sold them?”
“They’ve really been sold.” The colour of Yan Tianhen’s face changed and his heart stopped, “They were sold for a thousand gold, if you don’t believe me you can ask around at the demonic beast marketplace if anyone had taken in two tiger cubs.”
“They are a pair of demonic beast twins, and yet they were only sold for a thousand gold? Is there something wrong with Lin Xuanzhi’s brain?!” Han Yanran cried out.
You must know, a pair of amethyst white tiger cubs – even if they were the lowest level of demonic beasts – could be sold up to ten thousand gold!
But, Lin Xuanzhi only sold them for a thousand! If his brain didn’t have a problem, then what else could it be?
Yan Tianhen couldn’t stand hearing someone speak badly of Lin Xuanzhi, so he angrily said, “He didn’t sell them, I did.”
Han Yanran was stunned, then immediately turned to anger as she said, “Who do you think you are, you actually dared to sell my brother’s things? Who gave you the guts?”
“I wanted to save Dage, but I didn’t have money, and who said that they belong to your brother?” Yan Tianhen clenched his fist and fiercely glared at Han Yanran, “Don’t think I don’t know who brought my Dage to the martial hall, you guys better stop leading my Dage astray!
“How’s that any of my business.” Han Yanran felt a bit guilty, but still appeared righteous as she said, “You better redeem those cubs for me as soon as possible, or else!”
“If you have the ability then you go redeem them, I don’t have any money.” Yan Tianhen said.
Han Yanran unsheathed her sword and pointed it at Yan Tianhen as she scowled, “Do you believe that I’ll kill you right now?”
Yan Tianhen tilted his head and said, “Even if you kill me, I still won’t have the money to redeem them.”
Han Yanran thought to herself, even though she couldn’t really kill this ugly clown right now, but teaching him a lesson was still reasonable.
Anyway Lin Xuanzhi hates this damn lame kid too, this could be considered as her helping Lin Xuanzhi get rid of a thorn in his heart. Maybe Lin Xuanzhi would be so happy about it and even casually gift her some elixirs.
You must know, even though Lin Xuanzhi had turned into trash, an emaciated camel is still bigger than a horse.
Just as Han Yuran lifted her long sword and prepared to stab Yan Tianhen’s thigh with it, suddenly the air around them became turbulent and the surrounding Qi all rushed towards the same direction —
“Hu hu hu–”
Yan Tianhen suddenly raised his head and looked towards the main room in the yard.
The spiritual Qi appeared like it was being sucked in by a huge suction cup, and it was rushing towards the main room like crazy. Even Yan Tianhen could feel his body involuntarily absorbing quite a bit of spiritual Qi.
But this was too unbelievable!
You must know, spiritual Qi will only exhibit this kind of aggregation at places where there are spiritual stones, gathering spirit formations or ley lines.
Or, if someone was about to advance and thus had to absorb spiritual Qi like a madman, or it could occur when a top-grade medicinal pill or a top-grade magic tool was about to be born.
But Lin Xuanzhi’s current state obviously had no relationship with any of these situations.
The crazy aggregation of spiritual Qi did not last for long. When the spiritual Qi started to settle, Yan Tianhen immediately ran towards the main room.
A “ji ya”1 sounded, the door was opened by someone from within.
Dressed in a snow white robe, Lin Xuanzhi held a bright, jade-coloured hairpin in his hand and slowly walked out.
“Dage!” Yan Tianhen’s face broke out into a smile.
Lin Xuanzhi looked at Yan Tianhen’s face, and calmly said, “Have you eaten?”
Yan Tianhen shook his head, “I was waiting for Dage to eat together.”
Lin Xuanzhi, “I told you to eat your meals.”
Yan Tianhen rubbed his nose like a child who had just done something wrong, and quietly said, “But I was worried about Dage, so I had no appetite, I’m sorry.”
Lin Xuanzhi couldn’t bear to blame him, he had said those words purely because he was worried about Yan Tianhen.
Because of Yan Tianhen’s body, his cultivation level was still stuck at Refining Qi first layer and was 18 000 miles away from being able to fast, so he had to eat at least two meals a day or else his body would collapse.
