Chapter 152: B*stard Son
Clip clop clip clop!
Five Fire Cloud Horses galloped along the grasslands, and Qi Ying sat upon one of them.
The two Blood God Alliance members had gone off on their own, while Qi Ying stayed with Qin Mu and Qi Shun’s group.
Qi Ying wasn’t really interested in obtaining any inheritances. All he wanted was to get some useful treasures.
He was mainly looking for pills, but most of the pills that could be found in the mystic realm had already gone bad long ago, so there wasn’t much point in searching for them.
As such, it was better to travel with Qin Mu and Qi Shun.
Both of them were among the most powerful beings in the Dragon Metamorphosis Mystic Realm, and with them by his side, he wouldn’t have to worry about his own safety.
Furthermore, they were searching for the dragon vein, which was also what Qi Ying wanted to find.
Perhaps if they were lucky, they would all be able to find and obtain inheritances from the dragon vein.
Aside from that, Qi Ying also wanted to communicate with Qin Mu and Qi Shun, so he could get to know them better.
Mother Yu had told him to stay away from nobles as much as possible, but in reality, there were instances where interaction with such people was simply unavoidable.
Furthermore, Qi Ying wanted to ask Qin Mu about Qin Susu.
“Susu has been in a pretty bad mood recently, but she’s completely fine otherwise. She would be really happy to learn about how fast your cultivation base is progressing!” Qin Mu continued in his brutally honest fashion, “To be honest, in the beginning, I was also one of the people that thought you were trash, and didn’t deserve Susu. But then, I thought deeper about it, and realized that even though you’re only at the Eighth Energy Martial Stage, you had no cultivation base at all just a few months ago! At your rate of progression, I believe that you’ll be able to catch up to the Black Class prodigies very soon. Trust me, if you can tap into your potential and continue to become more powerful, many members from our Qin family will be swayed onto your side, so you better cultivate hard!”
Qi Shun chuckled upon hearing that, “Are you that eager to give your little sister away?”
Qin Mu harrumphed in response, “What give away? There’s mutual love between the two of them! Remember those fairy tales that we read as children? Many of them were about an underdog falling in love with a noble young mistress, and together, they overcame countless hardships to be together. Even though fairy tales are not to be taken seriously, I still believe that hard work will always pay dividends.” Qin Mu paused there, and a forlorn expression appeared on his face before he continued, “I wonder when I’ll have a woman to love me…”
Qi Ying almost burst into laughter upon hearing that. “Young Master Qin, I’m sure it won’t be a difficult task for you to find a woman to love you! Countless women in the kingdom want to marry themselves into the Qin family! Truth be told, back when I was at the Celestial River County, a lot of the female disciples were constantly saying things like ‘I really want to go and live in the capital; even if I have to marry an old doorkeeper from the Qin family to achieve that goal, it would be worth it!’.”
Qin Mu suddenly put on a serious expression and responded in a solemn voice, “That won’t do! Our old doorkeeper already has twelve wives; if another comes along, they’re going to have serious lodging problems!”
Everyone else burst into laughter.
Qi Shun then continued, “Don’t change the subject. Qi Ying, let me fill you in… Last year, the savage tribes sent someone to our Yun Xiao Academy for a tournament, and Young Master Qin Mu represented the Fifth Spirit Martial Stage disciples… He was then completely destroyed by the princess of the savages! After that, he fell in love with her, but she’s been giving him the cold shoulder this entire time! Haha!”
“Shut up, you b*stard!”
Qin Mu was enraged and immediately unleashed a dragon-shaped fist projection.
However, Qi Shun opened his mouth and swallowed the fist projection before patting his stomach. “Tastes a little like sashimi! But it’s not very fresh!”
Qi Ying was dumbfounded.
On one hand, he was shocked by Qi Shun’s ability.
‘Are all Qi family members this insane?’
On the other hand, he was taken aback by the fact that Qin Mu was infatuated with a savage princess… Back when Qi Ying was fighting at the Colosseum, he had seen many savages, and all of them reminded him of grizzly bears. They were burly and hirsute beings that had legs as thick as a normal person’s waist! Qin Mu sure had unique tastes!
Thus, they continued on their journey, and time passed by quickly amid chatter and laughter. Qi Ying asked them how they planned on finding the dragon vein, to which both of them replied that they didn’t know. They were simply going to run around in the Dragon Metamorphosis Mystic Realm, hoping that luck would be on their side. In any case, there was a time limit of half a month, and they would do their best to find the dragon vein during that period. Even if they failed to do so, it wouldn’t be too much of a concern.
After all, both of them had supreme aptitudes already, and an inheritance from the dragon vein would only be the icing on top of the cake.
With Qin Mu and Qi Shun by his side, Qi Ying could finally open up his heart. He talked about his past, from his experiences on the Nameless Mountain, to the Colosseum and the Celestial River County; everyone was stunned by his recount.
All of them had gathered information on Qi Ying, but they didn’t think much of it. Their only impression was that his rate of progression was quite extraordinary.
However, it was a completely different experience when listening to Qi Ying revealing specific details about his past. They heard about how he had protected Qin Susu from a pack of ferocious wolves, back when all of the beasts were rioting on the Nameless Mountain, and how Master Thirteen had saved him right before he was about to be killed by the Duan family…
Just hearing about those stories was quite a thrilling experience!
All of them had lived in the capital for all their lives, and they had undergone extremely strict training and trials. However, they couldn’t understand what it was like for an underprivileged warrior to fight his way from the bottom. They had never experienced the hardships of not having a powerful family to rely on, and having to risk their lives just to earn cultivation resources…
Qin Mu immediately offered his opinion, “F*ck that! I would never fight in the Colosseum! It would be like performing for the audience as a circus freak! Having said that though, I really do admire you for your courage!”
Qi Ying told them everything aside from his rather unsightly experiences with Lu Feifei.
Who knew what Qin Mu would think if he were to reveal those details?
Qi Shun was also clicking his tongue in wonder. “What a difficult past you’ve led. I’m glad that I never had to suffer those ordeals, but at the same time, I’m a little envious that you were able to experience so much more than us. Just your upbringing alone is a lot more treacherous than ours… Abandoned baby… I’m beginning to think you’re a b*stard son of someone from our Qi family!”
Qi Ying heaved a forlorn sigh. “It would be great if that really were the case. If I were a member of the Qi family, people like Chu Bixue wouldn’t dare to mess with me!”
Time flew and several days passed by in the blink of an eye.
Before they knew it, they had already been in the Dragon Metamorphosis Mystic Realm for nine days.
On that day, Qi Ying’s group arrived beside a long river. The river flowed down from a ten-thousand-feet tall mountain. The summit was enshrouded under a layer of cloud and mist, giving it a sense of mystery and intrigue.
