TQWWF ch 30.2 - A Pleasant Surprise

“Dad, are these uncharted territory?” asked Cheng Xiao Xiao as they walked on.

“You are exactly right. This ancient forest goes way deep, the beasts here are very powerful and had many different herbs. At the same time, these aren’t beasts that you everyday hunters can handle. I have only been here a few times. After all, we are just hunting for food, any wild animals will do, there is no need to come here to battle these vicious beasts.”

“Dad, have you seen mythical beasts?”


“Mythical beasts? The vicious beasts here can be considered as mythical beasts. They are more vicious and smarter than your normal beasts. Granted, if anything, they are on the lower end of the scale. I have heard that mythical beasts at the highest end can transform into human form. But these are legends, I have only heard of them.”

“Oh, so what’s the strongest mythical beast that you have encountered like?”

“The strongest mythical beast? The strongest mythical beast that I have seen was more powerful than a level 10 martial master!”

“Martial artist? Dad, what is a martial master?”

“Those who cultivate has different levels – martial apprentice, martial scholar, martial master, martial spiritualist, martial king, martial emperor, and martial monarch. Martial emperor and martial monarch only exist in legends. The strongest martial artists in Dafeng Country are merely martial king.”

The two chatted as they walked on and Cheng Xiao Xiao learned more as they go. She didn’t expect that each of these category further subdivided into ten levels, similar to that in her old novels.

From her father’s words, she learned that he was only a martial scholar before. But Yuteng’s healing power allowed him to achieve martial master. A martial master was already pretty high up in terms of ability in Dafeng Country.

After four hours of walking, Cheng Biyuan stopped. Looking at the mountain range in front of them, quietness surrounded them. Yet a surge of viciousness came at them from afar.

This was Cheng Xiao Xiao’s first time experiencing the magnificent of high mountains. She looked afar and saw clouds, fog, and all the mountains joining together. The vegetation was thick, and old, ancient trees rising up into the sky. In the midst of the fog, one could almost make out the roaring of vicious beasts.

“Xiao Xiao, are you afraid?” asked Cheng Biyuan with a smile.

Cheng Xiao Xiao smiled, “No, not with you around!”

She was somewhat buttering up to her father, but that aside, her father was a martial master and she has the dimension. There was nothing to be afraid about. Not to mention that little Yuteng was closeby, her safety was more or less guaranteed.

“Good, then let’s go!” Cheng Biyuan had a bright smile. Cheng Xiao Xiao’s buttering up had worked wonders.

“Okay!”

The two of them walked deeper into the mountain ranges.

“SSSSSsssss!”

A strange noice and Cheng Biyuan stopped in his steps. A bright, silvery light came bearing down from an ancient wood like a metal arrow!

“Be careful!”

A low cry from Cheng Biyuan and Cheng Xiao Xiao ducked to one side. She saw her father reached out and caught the silver bolt with two fingers right before it reached his face.

“SSSsssssss….”

A small, long, and silver snake curled around the father’s fingers. It let out a piercing noise but it couldn’t attack with it’s head being stuck between the fingers.

“Xiao Xiao, this is silver jade snake. It likes to hide and attack people from inside the tree. It looks soft but it’s hard like steel. It’s equivalent to a level three martial apprentice. But it’s most deadly weapon was its poison from it’s mouth. They are very toxic, even a little bit can kill a person. Do you want it inside the dimension?” Cheng Biyuan gave Cheng Xiao Xiao a brief explanation of the snake.

Cheng Xiao Xiao figured she already had a bandit krait, what’s another silver jade snake? She nodded, “Dad, let met collect it into the dimension. It could make a good assistant!”

“Up to you!”


Little Yuteng flashed out, waved her arm, and the silver snaked disappeared from inside Cheng Biyuan’s grip.

  2. Imagine confronting her, and she unleashes an army of snakes from her dimension, even if they're weak alone, 1000 of them would be overwhelming.
