Chapter 67: Sikong Chuyu
“Two left, but both with low difficulty. It will only take maybe two days.” Ye Shang said.
He had a very good impression of Sikong since she was not only glamorous, she also showed her goodwill when he had a conflict with Ao Lie in front of Tianji Tower.
“After you are finished with them, take some rest because there won’t be any new task in the second half of the month.” Sikong said with a smile.
Looking at the smiling Si Kong, Ye Shang was a little distracted, mainly because Sikong was too beautiful.
“What are you thinking?” Sikong looked at Ye Shang, who was totally distracted, waved her hand in front of him.
“Nothing, just wondering why your family gave you such a name. Girls rarely have such a name.” Ye Shang changed the topic.
“Do you know my name? It shouldn’t be!” Sikong was somewhat puzzled.
“Didn’t you mention that you are called Sikong?” Ye Shang was also puzzled since Sikong clearly had told him her name.
“Oh, Sikong is my last name, not my full name.” Hearing Ye Shang’s words, Sikong understood that Ye Shang mistook her surname for her full name.
“Well, I see.” Ye Shang nodded and also felt that such a beauty should not have a common name.
“My name is Sikong Chuyu.” Sikong Chuyu said with a smile.
“What a beautiful name.” Ye Shang said with a smile.
“Your name is also pretty nice.” Sikong Chuyu said and poured herself a cup of tea.
“Really? I’m actually an orphan, so it wasn’t my parents who gave me this name. Well, thank you for the tea, Master Sikong. I have to leave.” Ye Shang took a deep breath, then got up and said.
Looking at the back of Ye Shang, Sikong Chuyu called Enforcer Dong. “Send someone to investigate the origins of Ye Shang, remember not to be hostile.”
After returning to the inn, Ye Shang took out the two bear legs, one for Zhang Dechang and the other one for his dinner with Mo Chen.
“How was everything?” Mo Chen arrived at the side of Ye Shang and asked.
“It was a bit complicated with the task of Huang Yu. Her family asked me quite a lot of stuff.” Ye Shang said.
“It was inevitable that they wanted to figure it out since she just got kidnapped by the bandits. We’ve been fighting and traveling these few days, you should take some rest for a few days and improve your cultivation base.” Mo Chen said.
“Okay, Martial Brother. I know that someone surnamed Si, but anyone surnamed Sikong?” asked Ye Shang.
“Do you mean by the woman in Tianji Tower with an unknown cultivation base?” Mo Chen was quite impressed with Sikong Chuyu not only due to her beautiful appearance but also because she had a high cultivation base.
“Yes, that is her last name, not the name.” Ye Shang said.
“How do you know?” Mo Chen asked curiously.
“Her name is Sikong Chuyu.” Ye Shang said.
“Good name. I have never heard of this surname. But it is very strange that she told you her name. If you were not young, I would have thought she might be interested in you. Thirteenth, grow up!” Mo Chen smiled and said.
Ye Shang shook his head and went back to cultivate since he had to reach Soul-CondensationStage as soon as possible, in addition, his cultivation of Myriad Dao Treasured Tome was not far from the Stage 7 of Blood Quenching Realm.
After cultivating for two days, Ye Shang continued with the tasks, and Mo Chen told him that he wouldn’t follow him this time, but in fact he had been far behind Ye Shang all the time.
After 3 and a half days, Ye Shang returned to Danding City as he finished the last 2 tasks.
Completing the tasks, Ye Shang started chatting with Sikong Chuyu. “Master Sikong, in Tianji Tower, how much does it cost for the core pill?”
“Do you want to exchange your points for core pills? Well, the price is not high, but I have a suggestion, do you want to hear?” Sikong looked at Ye Shang and gave him a cup of tea.
“Of course I have to listen to your advice.” Ye Shang nodded.
“Your points almost allow you to change your token to a bronze token. If you can have the bronze token, the points required for the core pills will be reduced to 25%. At present, you’re at Stage 9 of Qi-Refining, and you don’t even need the core pill to breakthrough to the initial Soul-Condensation Stage, so you can try changing to the new token during this period of time.” Sikong Chuyu said her suggestion.
“Very nice opinion. If I exchanged for 3 core pills with the bronze token, it would save me quite a lot of points.” Ye Shang thought about it.
“3 is a bit too much. In theory, it is not a problem to take 3, but it’s not a good thing if the cultivation base is raised too fast. Just exchange for 1 or 2. Don’t reach the limit.” Sikong Chuyu suggested.
“Okay, I see. Thank you, Master Sikong.” Ye Shang clasped hands to Sikong Chuyu.
“Just call me Sikong. Don’t be too polite. Remember to come early at the beginning of every month, for more good tasks, that will make it much easier to advance towards the bronze token.” Sikong Chuyu said with a smile as she knew that Ye Shang had done all the tasks he picked.
Clasping hands to her again, Ye Shang left.
“This guy has got talent.” Enforcer Dong appeared next to Sikong Chuyu.
“Of course, if there is no accident, after a few years, his name will be widely-known in Dongxuan Area.” Sikong Chuyu said.
“We got the results. Master, take a look.” Enforcer Dong handed a file to Sikong Chuyu.
“Age 14, Orphan, and raised by the village head of Zhuyuan Village near Tiannan City. He was a hunter without any cultivation base a few months ago. It could be said that he was the best hunter in Zhuyuan Village.” Giving the file to Sikong, she introduced the information.
“Reaching Level 9 of Qi-Refining Stage from nothing in just 4 months, even if he has abundant resources, the speed is still unbelievably incredible. Not only that, the physical strength of his body is really high as well. Even without Qi, he could kill an opponent at the same level as his. However, the most shocking point is his fighting instincts. Considering the fight he had at the door of our tower and the marks on bodies of the bloodthirsty wolf king and the iron bear king, he seems to be born for fighting.” Sikong Chuyu said.
“The Medicine Valley got a treasure, right? By the way, when will you go back?” Enforcer Dong asked.
“Go back? Why? Do what I don’t like according to my family’s arrangement?” Sikong Chuyu looked indifferent.
“But you can’t hide for too long, Master” Enforcer Dong said.
“It doesn’t matter. I know what my family thinks currently. Despite knowing that I came out, my parents didn’t stop me. I will prove my worth, and then my family won’t say anything like that to me again.” Sikong Chuyu said.
Returning to the inn, Ye Shang began to cultivate as he planned to cultivate the Myriad Dao Treasured Tome to Stage 7 of Blood Quenching Realm.
