Chapter 45: Brother Hei
He was gasping for breath as every muscle in his body was in pain. He even received a few more ferocious wounds and was bleeding profusely.
He was surrounded by the carcasses of beasts that he had killed, and without exception, all thirty beasts that had beset him were dead.
If this scene was seen by any other disciples in the sect, Jiang Yun will definitely be regarded as a god in the earth.
The killing of nearly thirty beasts at level seven and above by himself was equivalent to killing nearly thirty cultivators above the seventh level of the Meridians Unclogged Realm, including several of them being at level eight or nine.
This was simply impossible, as even for the inner disciples may not be able to do the same. Because this required for a person to not only have powerful strength as a reliance, but also a need for rich combat experience as a support.
And all this, Jiang Yun had.
However, in order to kill the nearly 30 fierce beasts, he also used a variety of means. Whether it was physical strength or spiritual power, his body was once again in the state of exhaustion.
Jiang Yun did not look at the dead beasts on the ground at all, but continued to patrol around because until now, the unknown existence that had just issued orders to these beasts had not appeared.
And that unknown existence may be his biggest enemy, it was very likely that it was related to the death of Lu XiaoYu.
While he silently waited for a moment to see that there was nothing strange around, Jiang Yun simply sit cross-legged and with eyes closed, his brain recalled the words in Meridians Unclogged Instructions. As he absorbed the spiritual power from the environment, which activated all of his senses to the extreme, as waited for that unknown existence.
Unfortunately, Jiang Yun did not know that as he sat down, there was a dark mist silhouette of a man high in the air that was not far behind him.
A grim voice came from the fog, “What a great body, it must be good to chew! Hey hey, the Seeking-Tao Sect sent me two good disciples this time, what a pity.”
When the voice fell, the fog-like silhouette suddenly disappeared from its place. When it reappeared, it was already in front of Jiang Yun. However, his keen and remarkable senses were of no use at this moment.
The fog exploded like a bomb as it immediately covered Jiang Yun’s body completely.
Then, in the mist, something quietly rolled as it condensed into a hair thick black thread, squeezed towards Jiang Yun’s nine orifices.
From a distance, it looked like the fog suddenly turned into a bunch of insects, trying to squeeze into Jiang Yun’s body desperately.
However, as soon as these black lines touched Jiang Yun’s body, they were suddenly all ejected as if there was some powerful force inside his body preventing the black line from entering.
The sudden change stopped the rolling fog as the black lines were all still. Until a moment later, the grim voice resounded, “No wonder I thought that this kid was a little familiar. It’s him! Of course, you can stop me! F**k, it’s a pity to not be able to eat him, I might get trouble by that guy if I eat him.”
The fog began to rise and fall, and it seemed to show the hesitation and entanglement of the voice of the owner. It was not until a long time later that the voice began to ring again, “F**k, it would not mean so much for me to not eat another one, I shall do him a favor! But I must let him remember this, or it will be meaningless.”
As the sound fell, the fog suddenly began to shrink. It not only released Jiang Yun’s body, but also condensed a thin old man dressed in black before him.
Jiang Yun suddenly opened his eyes and as he saw the old man in front of him, his body jumped up as he quickly stepped backward. At the same time, his face displayed a strange expression, “Who are you?”
Since the other side could appear in front of him silently, his power was absolutely much stronger than his. He most likely was the previously unknown existence who drove the beasts at him.
The thin old man touched his dry, bark-like cheek, “Hey, hey now, I am your friend’s friend!”
““A friend of my friend?”
Jiang Yun’s mind was running very fast. He had very few friends. Apart from the villagers in Jiang village, only DongFang Bo, his elder sister, and Lu XiaoYu could be called his friends.
Hesitating for a while, Jiang Yun frowned and asked, “You know my elder brother?”
In Jiang Yun’s opinion, it was absolutely impossible to be anyone in Jiang village, and Lu XiaoYu also should not have such a strong friend. Since this forest was close to the Seeking-Tao Sect, then the other side can only be the friend of DongFang Bo.
“Is he your elder brother?” The old man was a bit surprised, but then nodded his head and said, “Yes, your brother and I have known each other for a long time.”
Hearing these words, Jiang Yu trusted a little about his identity, but he was still alert as he spoke with some distance, “My name is Jiang Yun. Although elder brother is not my real brother, elder brother treats me very kindly. Since you are a friend of my elder brother, you also are my friend naturally, so how should I address you?”
The old man smirked a little and said, “You can call me as Old Hei (Black in Chinese).”
Jiang Yun didn’t really care about his name, and even didn’t ask whether he was the person who drove the beasts at him. With a flick of his wrist, a sachet appeared in his palm as he asked hurriedly, “Brother Hei, have you seen the owner of this sachet? She is a little girl of about 12 or 13 years old, a factotum disciple of the Seeking-Tao Sect just like me.”
“Brother Hei?” He twitched at the corners of his mouth, as he obviously also felt extremely strange to the words of Jiang Yun, but after looking at the sachet, he nodded and said, “I have seen her.”
Jiang Yun felt his breathing quicken, “Is she still alive?”
The man murmured in mind, “She is still alive, but already in my belly, is he asking me to vomit her out?”
After a moment’s hesitation, he asked, “You tell me first, what’s that little girl got to do with you?”
“She’s my sister!”
The muscles on his face couldn’t help but twitch again, and in his heart, he even had the idea of crying. “Although he made me take care of this boy, he did not tell me that this boy had a sister. This is really a big loss, buy one get one free!”
“But since he already bought one, another was not a big deal at all.”
Thinking of this, Old Hei suddenly reached out his hand and pointed to the place behind Jiang Yun, “She is still alive, but a little weak. In the hollow of that tree.”
Jiang Yun was so surprised and pleased that he even forgot to thank him. He immediately turned around and flew in the direction indicated by Old Hei.
He was so excited that he did not see that at the moment when he turned around, Old Hei’s figure exploded silently and became a black mist again. He suddenly disappeared into the ground and appeared at the side of a hole in the tree. And soon, a figure appeared in the rolling fog.
