Book 6 Chapter 36 Goddess
Teng Qingshan also stared at the purple-cloaked man on horseback.
“It seems that this man is quite hostile towards me.” At the moment, Teng Qingshan was confident that he could deal with any expert that had reached the level of a Golden Dan innate expert.
“You are the Fifth Godly General?” A cold voice rang out.
Beside Teng Qingshan elegantly stood Li Jun, dressed in a purple fur coat, icily staring at the slightly plump man across from her and said, “I wonder, why is the Fifth Godly General here?”
When Teng Qingshan heard this, he dubiously thought, “How strong is the Godly General?”
The Fifth Godly General, Eriqier, looked deeply at Li Jun and replied, “Goddess! This Huhe is the infamous Demon Arada of the Great Prairie! Because of this fact, it is natural for the God of Heaven Mountain to bestow punishment! Why do you ask? Perhaps he is someone of relation to you?”
“He is my friend!” Li Jun knitted her brows as she said, “Fifth Godly General, what Demon Arada? The Demon Arada is just a myth……While my friend may have killed some people, it’s because those people deserved to die! On this Great Prairie, the strong rule supreme while the weak grovel underneath. Out here, the only law that is in effect is the law of the jungle, the survival of the fittest! Are the hands of the Godly Generals not stained with blood? So are you saying that if someone kills many people, that automatically makes him the Demon Arada?! This sure is funny!”
Li Jun’s eyes were as sharp as a sword as she cast a fierce glare at the Fifth Godly General before continuing, “Fifth Godly General, I hope you won’t be here disturbing me while I tame these demonic beasts.”
The Fifth Godly General, Eriqier, remained silent as he sat atop his mount.
“Okay then. I won’t be disturbing you, the Goddess, and your friend.” As soon as Eriqier finished his sentence, he turned his mount and spurred the horse on! “Jia!” The Blood Dragon Horse Vermillion Wind Beast neighed and immediately began accelerating, transforming into a blurry blood-red figure that quickly disappeared on the horizon of the vast Great Prairie.
Teng Qingshan and Li Jun watched the Fifth Godly General leave.
“Little Jun, who is this Fifth Godly General?” Teng Qingshan asked in surprise and curiosity. Actually, Teng Qingshan felt even more puzzled regarding her title as the so-called Goddess.
Li Jun smiled calmly as she replied, “On the God of Heaven Mountain, besides the superior God of Heaven, those that are a level below the God of Heaven in authority are called the Godly Generals. Each Godly General has the strength of a Golden Dan Innate Expert! As for the Fifth Godly General, I do not know much of him, as I have only met him once in my short time in the God of Heaven Mountain…..However, I do know that the Fifth Godly General, Eriqier, one of the Eight Supreme Godly Generals, is now an expert second to only the First Godly General.”
“Eight Supreme Godly Generals? And every single one of them is a Golden Dan innate expert?” Teng Qingshan was astonished when he heard this claim.
Originally, Teng Qingshan guessed that, according to the situation in the northern region of the prairie, the ability of the God of Heaven Mountain was on par with the Eight Supreme Sects of the Nine Prefectures! However, when he found out just how powerful the God of Heaven Mountain was, he was still involuntarily shocked on the inside!
“Big Brother Teng, my sect is really powerful. If you join my sect, then even the Eight Supreme Sects wouldn’t be able to kill you.” Li Jun stared at Teng Qingshan as she said, “Just join my sect. I will tell them about it and it will be fine.”
When Li Jun saw Teng Qingshan’s eyes, she immediately understood Teng Qingshan’s decision.
Although Teng Qingshan may have declared to have betrayed and left the Gui Yuan Sect…..That was because he was forced by the desperate situation. He did it out of consideration for Gui Yuan Sect, but in Teng Qingshan’s heart…..Teng Qingshan still saw himself as a member of the Gui Yuan Sect.
“How powerful is your sect?” Teng Qingshan asked curiously.
“This is a great secret,” Li Jun answered with a mysterious smile, “However, I can let you in on one thing…..The God of Heaven Mountain is just a branch of my sect!”
When Teng Qingshan heard, his facial expression changed drastically.
Just a branch?
The ability of the God of Heaven Mountain could be compared to Xiao Yao Palace or Qing Hu island! Although it may not be as powerful as either the Ying Family and Emperor Yu’s Hall, it was still plenty strong! However, who would have ever guessed that the God of Heaven Mountain was just a branch of a larger tree!
“Therefore, that is why I said that as long as Big Brother Teng join my sect, Big Brother Teng would no longer have worry about being pursued by anyone.” Li Jun said.
“Now, I am not worried.”
Teng Qingshan smiled calmly, “Little Jun, say no more. Looking at the whole wide world…there are probably no Golden Dan innate experts out there that can kill me!” Although his attacking power was slightly weak, Teng Qingshan was confident that no one would be able to pierce through the defense of the Transmutation Unity Law Spear Art!
If Teng Qingshan could stall for enough time, then he could absolutely wait until his opponent used up all of their Innate True Origin, allowing him to kill his adversary! In terms of endurance then even if all of the Golden Dan innate experts in this world were to combine their endurance into one, they would still not be able to surpass Teng Qingshan’s!
“Also, did he just call you Goddess?” Teng Qingshan looked at Li Jun with a smile.
Li Jun smiled, “I have only obeyed the order of my Martial Uncle to come here in order come up with ways to care for and tame these demonic beasts…As such, I am treated as the future number one beast trainer in my sect. While those Golden Dan innate experts may all have high statuses, there are only three people who are able to tame demonic beasts: me, Martial Brother Wan, and Martial Uncle Wu Hou. Therefore, my status surpassed theirs. Those Godly Generals… Hmph…I am too lazy to bother with them.
Teng Qingshan immediately understood Li Jun’s status!
Being able to communicate with the demonic beasts was indeed a very terrifying ability!
In this world, there are just too many demonic beasts! Many human experts in this world were able to defeat demonic beasts, but because they couldn’t communicate with the demonic beasts, it was almost impossible for them to tame one!
Through only the power of communication, it was possible for one to know what was on the demonic beast’s mind, and to provide for the needs of the demonic beast so that it could be tamed, and be a part of one’s own personal force!
“Tsk. Tsk….There are many demonic beasts in this world. If anyone could defeat an Emptiness Realm demonic beast and use it for their own wants and needs, then….” As Teng Qingshan thought this, he sighed in awe.
An Emptiness Realm demonic beast!
Most Emptiness Realm demonic beasts had lifespans longer than that of humans. Some could even live for thousands of years. If one ever acquired an Emptiness Realm demonic beast as a partner and a friend, then one would be free to do whatever they wanted.
“A Godly Thunderbolt Hawk, an Emptiness Realm demonic beast, attacked the Xiao Yao Palace last time. Was that Godly Thunderbolt Hawk tamed?” Teng Qingshan couldn’t help but recall that one incident.
“Taming an Emptiness Realm demonic beast is extremely difficult! With the inflated pride of an Emptiness Realm demonic beast, one would have to completely surpass the demonic beast in terms of martial force! Surpassing the beast in terms of force might be possible, defeating an Emptiness Realm Demonic Beast, however……” Teng Qingshan shook his head.
Teng Qingshan was still far from defeating an Emptiness Realm demonic beast.
Maybe it would only possible to fight an Emptiness Realm demonic beast if Teng Qingshan was at the level of an Emptiness Realm Expert.
Looking at Li Jun, who had already grown up, Teng Qingshan sighed, “Seeing that you are able to disrespect even the Godly Generals that have reached the Golden Dan innate realm, I am now at ease! However, I still have things to do…..So let’s part here.”
Li Jun’s facial expression changed slightly.
“Big Brother Teng, why are you in such a hurry?” Li Jun asked.
“I just want to comprehend the mysteries of the Heavens and the Earth, and break the chains of the mundane to reach an even higher level! Therefore, I will venture the world……I want to sail the sea and explore the earth with no central purpose.” Teng Qingshan smiled and said, “I will travel for a minimum of two to three years to a maximum of ten years.”
As for the Northern Sea Continent, Teng Qingshan did not want to do anything unnecessary.
“That long?” Li Jun smiled and urged, “Big Brother Teng, if you want to comprehend the Heavens and the Earth to achieve a breakthrough on the Martial Way, you don’t have to sail the seas…..Isn’t it the same if you explore the vast lands of the Great Prairie?”
Teng Qingshan remained silent, shaking his head.
Seeing Teng Qingshan’s expression, Li Jun understood that he had made up his mind, and that nobody would be able to sway him. The Li Jun today……was no longer the weak little girl of the past.
She was now honored as the Goddess of the God of Heaven Mountain, and only the God of Heaven was of a higher status than her. She didn’t even care about those Godly Generals.
With her revered position, even her field of vision was different.
“Why does he still want to be alone…….” Li Jun clearly remembered the information gathered on Teng Qingshan and couldn’t help but feel nervous and anxious. However, she still nodded and said, “Sailing the seas for a few years…is good, but won’t you be worried about parents in your extended absence?”
Teng Qingshan froze.
Indeed, family was what he valued the most.
“Plus, Big Brother Teng, you have been on the run for over half a year, and thus, you probably don’t know much about your parents’ current situation, right?” Li Jun said.
Hearing her words, Teng Qingshan’s facial expression suddenly twisted as he stared at Li Jun. “Little Jun, did something happen to my parents?” asked Teng Qingshan.
Li Jun shook her head and smiled, “I was just saying……Regarding the news of your parents and relatives, I myself am not quite sure. However, I think you should check up on your family before sailing the seas.”
“Yes,” Teng Qingshan nodded in agreement.
Although Teng Qingshan was worried about his parents, his sister, and the people of Teng Jia Village and Gui Yuan Sect for the past six months, because his whole heart was set on fleeing, he had no way of knowing what happened to them.
“Little Jun, this God of Heaven Mountain should have information regarding my relatives, right?” Teng Qingshan’s eyes brightened in expectation as he looked at Li Jun.
“Big Brother Teng, what I meant was that you should accompany me to the God of Heaven Mountain and I will order my subordinate to gather information of your relatives and Gui Yuan Sect here. This way, you will be able to sail the seas in peace! Plus, I can stay with you for a few more days.” Li Jun smiled.
When Teng Qingshan heard this, he shook his head in helplessness.
Actually, Teng Qingshan could feel Li Jun’s thoughts…..Li Jun was the Goddess that was even indifferent to the Godly Generals, yet she was still very good to Teng Qingshan to the point that she even told Teng Qingshan the secrets of her sect.
Most importantly…….Li Jun did say that she was going to give Teng Qingshan information, but it was only because she wanted to stay with Teng Qingshan for a few more days. When Teng Qingshan saved Li Jun in the past, he could already feel that the lonely, weak little girl had held feelings for him, the only one that could help her! Now that Li Jun’s status was elevated, she hid that affection for him even deeper.
However, Teng Qingshan could still feel it!
“While she may look exactly like Little Cat, she is not Little Cat.” Teng Qingshan knew this point clearly. Although his heart does still palpitate occasionally when facing Little Jun due to the uncanny resemblance.
“Little Cat and Qingqing and all the other people that loved me all died!” Teng Qingshan sighed secretly, “I should just stay alone in this life……that would be good as well!”
“I should spend less time with Little Jun to avoid wasting her time.”
If Little Cat’s death was a huge blow to Teng Qingshan, then the death of Qingqing, who had melted Teng Qingshan’s icy heart with her innocence and sincerity, was an even larger blow, causing a thicker and harder layer of ice to form around Teng Qingshan’s cold heart.
“God of Heaven Mountain?” Teng Qingshan looked at Li Jun as he asked, “If I go with you, you won’t get into trouble, right?”
“No!” Li Jun smiled confidently and said, “No one dares to give me any trouble.”
Teng Qingshan nodded and said, “That’s good then. I will go to the God of Heaven Mountain with you!” Although Teng Qingshan did not want to spend too much time with Little Jun, he was still very worried about his parents, sister, and relatives.
He would set sail alone after he knew how his parents, sister, and relatives were doing…….
