If one were to say he had been forced, but to be more direct, Ji Yunwei was thrown out of the Myriad Beasts Demonic Forest.
He couldnt even see Ah Jiu, much less say anything else.
However, Ji Yunwei also wanted some face.
Ji Yunwei already did not know what to do next. On one hand, he was worried that the Nine-Tailed Fox would hurt his family. On the other hand, he was deeply worried about both his and the Nine-Tailed Foxs future.
Ever since a big demonic beast had dominated the Myriad Beasts Demonic Forest and also the news of it creating the current barrier predicament had been spread far and wide, Ji Yunwei had begun to worry whether this rumour would cause the Nine-Tailed Fox to be a target and suppressed. At that thought, Ji Yunweis heart, one may as well say, had shattered.
Lin Xuanzhi thought for a moment, "Tomorrow, we will travel to the Myriad Beasts Demonic Forest to take a look. If we have the chance to encounter the Nine-Tailed Fox, Id like to ask him what else he still remembers."
Ji Yunwei looked at Lin Xuanzhi solemnly, "Ah Jiu still remembers you. But he didnt mention anything about you, as if he had been abstained from talking about it. Though Im not sure why, but I think it is better for you to ask clearly. This way, you might be able to prepare in advance and do everything possible to avoid it, if any mishap were to happen in the future."
Lin Xuanzhi nodded, while thinking to himself: he knows better than anyone as to what misfortune he had experienced in his previous life.
Lin Xuanzhis line of sight uncontrollably shifted towards Yan Tianhen.
What worried him right now was that if Yan Tianhen was to go to the Myriad Beasts Demonic Forest and had accidentally possessed the memories of his previous life, then what should he do?
The Nine-Tailed Fox was certainly someone Lin Xuanzhi wanted to meet personally. Moreover, when it comes to this matter, as of right now, it had become far more important than searching for that magic treasure in the centre of the Great Demon-Sealing Array.
Ji Yunwei pressed a hand to his aching forehead, "If you wish to enter the forest tomorrow, I will accompany you. After all, when it comes to the Myriad Beasts Demonic Forest, I am slightly more familiar with it."
Yan Tianhen smiled, "Brother Ji is too modest. How can you be considered as being only slightly familiar with it? Since you were young, you have been hunting in the Myriad Beasts Demonic Forest, so you must definitely be very familiar with it."
Ji Yunwei looked at Yan Tianhen, perplexed. "Im afraid both of you dont know that the current terrain and state in the Myriad Beasts Demonic Forest are completely different. In a short period of two months, the trees in the Myriad Beasts Demonic Forest had grown wildly and just like that, it would already be impossible to search for the original route."
The Myriad Beasts Demonic Forest was now beyond recognition.
This had long come into Lin Xuanzhis mind.
After all, all living things depended on spiritual Qi for their growth, especially in the cultivation world.
It seemed that the spiritual Qi dissipation had brought about an excellent enhancement to the life forms in the Myriad Beasts Demonic Forest. It would not be long before new forms of spiritual plants would be sprouted and mutated demonic beasts be confiscated.
Their cultivation was unimpeded, but only if they didnt venture deep enough. Furthermore, the Myriad Beasts Demonic Forest, for some unknown reason, was increasingly rich in spiritual Qi, which did not dissipate.
Yan Tianhens eyes brightened, "This is good ah. If its me, I would have long gone to cultivate in the Myriad Beasts Demonic Forest."
The reason why the Nine Lands was called the Upper Realm was because the spiritual Qi there was the most abundant. That was also why when cultivators of the Nine Lands cultivate, it would naturally soar rapidly, seemingly like fish in water.
Ji Yunwei shook his head lightly, "How would there be good things that are so readily available? If human cultivators could advance so rapidly, then both the demonic beasts and devils could as well. Moreover, the Myriad Beasts Demonic Forest is the territory of beasts and their cultivation speed far exceeds that of human cultivators."
Speaking till this point, Ji Yunwei let out a soft sigh and then continued, "Actually, when it comes to the early formation of Myriad Beasts Demonic Forests barrier, it brings about more advantages to the entire West Continent. Otherwise, once the demonic beasts have cultivated to a certain point, with no barrier to obstruct them, Im afraid the first thing theyd do would be to wipe out the entire Qi City."
In the end, both the demonic beasts and humans had racial differences.
Across the Five Continents, the Ji family ranked first in controlling beasts, because the family could tame these demonic beasts.
However, amongst those that they had tamed, only a small portion had been raised and trained by them.
When Yan Tianhen imagined the scene of demonic beasts and monsters rampaging through Qi City, he couldnt help feeling a little scared. Rubbing his arms, he said, "It seems that the existence of this barrier is absolutely necessary."
After taking a stroll outside and also pulling another efficient help into the group, Lin Xuanzhi and Yan Tianhen could no longer stay there. They bought a lot of crafting materials and spiritual herbs in Qi Citys commercial street before heading back together.
Arriving at the inn, Lin Xuanzhi saw Liu Mengchen and Qing Zhu had also returned together.
Although Qing Zhu had been really cold towards Liu Mengchen, he could not drive him away since the mans skin was thicker than the city wall. Wherever Qing Zhu went, Liu Mengchen stuck to him, as if he was like a tail, and did not give the person any chance to breathe.
Qing Zhu was simple-minded, even if he was angry, he would just directly hit them. However, when it comes to his verbal attacks, it was absolutely useless. That was why he could not drive away Liu Mengchen, who had a higher cultivation. In the end, Qing Zhu simply let him do whatever he liked.
Upon seeing Lin Xuanzhi and Yan Tianhen, Qing Zhu stood up from his chair, "Earlier, I went around the perimeters of the Myriad Beasts Demonic Forest to inspect it. They said that the current appearance of the Myriad Beasts Demonic Forest is beyond recognition. However, there is also good news, which is that the Myriad Beasts Demonic Forest is rich in Spiritual Qi. Hence, its beneficial to ones cultivation."
Lin Xuanzhi nodded, "Its the same as what we have gathered."
Liu Mengchen looked at Qing Zhu, "I have already told you these things before. Why do you have to ask personally again?"
Qing Zhu replied, "I can only believe half of what you say. If I dont verify these matters personally, I would never believe them."
Liu Mengchen was slightly distressed, "What I have said previously about the Great Demon-Sealing Array, it seems that you dont really believe it."
Qing Zhu said with a cold face, "I do somewhat believe about the matter of the Great Demon-Sealing Array, but youve definitely omitted a very crucial part in whatever happened to you at the bottom of the valley."
Liu Mengchen smiled bitterly, "Zhuer, if you want to know about these matters, I can tell you right now, but you always refuse to talk to me."
"Then its better you keep it to yourself." Qing Zhu did not give him any face at all.
Liu Mengchen could only sigh, "How about I tell you once weve gotten out of the Myriad Beasts Demonic Forest?"
Qing Zhu shook Liu Mengchens hand off his wrist and answered resistantly, "Theres no need for that.
Once we leave the Myriad Beasts Demonic Forest, both of us will go our separate ways and never be in contact with each other. I wont blame you for trying to scheme against me in the beginning. Also, you dont have to follow me so humbly anymore. Lets consider it as if we didnt know each other from the beginning."
"Thats not possible." Liu Mengchen shook his head," How can I not make up for the losses you have suffered?"
Qing Zhu looked at Liu Mengchen, "If you really want to make it up to me, then just give me back what youve taken from me."
Liu Mengchen was stunned, as he opened his mouth and did not make a sound.
"Heh" Qing Zhu sneered, "Thats just it? A fox may turn grey, but never kind. You should go, I dont want to see you."
Liu Mengchen looked somewhat lost. His eyes faintly held some sadness that was difficult to control.
Lin Xuanzhi and Yan Tianhen looked on with embarrassment. Just as they were thinking of kicking Liu Mengchen out of the room, then someone had been knocking on the door from the outside.
The shopkeeper came over with a young man.
Knowing that these people were all friends of their young owner, the shopkeeper said very politely, "As soon as this guest had entered the inn, he then wanted to find a guest with the Liu surname. I looked at the register and found out that one of you has Liu as his surname."
There was no need for the shopkeeper to continue any more, as Liu Mengchen and Qing Zhu had already seen this unexpected guest.
With some surprise in his expression, Liu Mengchen stepped forward and asked, "Linfeng, why are you here?"
Qing Zhus expression changed a few times. His eyes bore into Xiao Linfeng, without blinking and he clenched his fist slightly. It seemed as if he wanted to kill people without restraint.
Xiao Linfeng, however, smiled brightly and clasped his hands in greeting towards Liu Mengchen. "Why, you have left seclusion so quickly and didnt even send a word. Then now you want to enter the Myriad Beasts Demonic Forest and still dont allow me to join you?"
Liu Mengchen smiled, "I naturally will welcome you."
Xiao Linfeng definitely did not regard himself as an outsider, as he walked right in to look for some water to drink. After pouring himself a glass, he gulped it down, then wiped his mouth with the back of his hand and sighed, "Damn it, I had been travelling hurriedly throughout the whole journey here. It definitely wasnt easy to catch up with you all before you entered the forest. I couldnt even stop to drink water."
Qing Zhu watched Xiao Linfengs natural yet unstopping movements and could not help saying, "The cup you used was mine."
Xiao Linfeng froze for a moment, then looked at the cup and his lips raised in a smile, "So thats why it smells so good. Dont worry, you dont repulse me."
Qing Zhu, "."
Damn it, I am very disgusted with you!
Qing Zhu wanted to flip the table, while Liu Mengchens face darkened by several degrees in an instant.
Xiao Linfeng had actually walked right in and began flirting with his person.
If it was not because he was used to Xiao Linfeng acting casually, Liu Mengchen would have thought Xiao Linfeng was really deliberately flirting with Qing Zhu.
With a shocked face, Yan Tianhen also looked at this strange person, whom he had no idea where he had come from. In that instance, he forgot to ask who he was.
However, Xiao Linfeng took the initiative to introduce himself.
"Xiao Linfeng, 28 this year and I believe Ill still look this way in the future." Xiao Linfeng touched his face and smiled heartily. "I was originally a worldly mortal, a swordsman roaming the cultivation world. It was by chance that I had eaten an Inquiring Immortals spiritual grass, so now I became a cultivator!"
Qing Zhus face darkened, as he stretched out his foot and ruthlessly stomped on Xiao Linfengs foot.
Xiao Linfeng was caught off guard when his foot was stepped on, even his complexion had changed a little. It was until Qing Zhu moved his foot away, that Xiao Linfeng held his foot while jumping around, "Little beauty, you are so good-looking, how could you be so cruel? You almost broke my foot with your stomp. Are you planning to carry me on your back from now on? But thats okay too, I can save my strength this way."
