Chapter 48: Chapter 48 – Breakthrough to the Enlightening Stage

Seeing how tragic the Hegemon-Scaled Black Dragon looked, Little Jiang Xue stared at him and asked, “You killed him just like that?”

This was a Fifth Rank powerful demon…

It was a being that could destroy cities and overturn kingdoms!

She felt that this couldn’t be real. Not only her, but even Huang Lianxin had the same feeling.

Only Northern Valiant Sword heaved a sigh of relief.

He admired him in his heart. Sword God Zhou indeed, such decisiveness, totally not afraid of the threat.

The Three-Eyed Drought Rodent went to the little black snake’s side and sniffed, then it took a bite of the head of the snake and was about to eat it…

Zhou Xuanji quickly kicked it away. He then squatted down and looked at the small snake with hesitation.

He felt that this thing was not thoroughly dead yet.

Should he kill him or not?

He looked back at Northern Valiant Sword and asked, “How long does it usually take for a powerful demon to be reborn from nirvana?”

He wanted to ask the snake about the old man in black.

Without clarifying this issue, he really felt suffocated in his heart.

Northern Valiant Sword said, “It would at least take a dozen years. Since cultivation requires training, after all.”

He felt as though his heart skipped a beat. Just when he praised Sword God Zhou, the young master became compassionate towards the snake?

Zhou Xuanji immediately took out a fine rope, then he called the Three-Eyed Drought Rodent over and tied the small snake together with the rodent’s foot.

He then used his spirit energy to extend the snake’s breath.

After a short while…

The snake opened its eyes gradually. It was suffering because its entire body was in pain. It looked at Zhou Xuanji and said, “I…”

“Ptooey!”

Zhou Xuanji spat saliva at it. For its small size, it was as though a tub of water was poured onto its head.

The small snake was furious. The indescribable disgust almost made it faint.

“I am…”

“You… how can you humiliate me like this…”

“Ahhh…”

“…”

The small snake laid in the puddle of saliva and dared not move. It was in total despair.

At this moment, he would rather be dead.

Little Jiang Xue walked over and patted Zhou Xuanji’s shoulder and said, “Can you not be so disgusting?”

Zhou Xuanji grinned and said, “If I don’t teach him a lesson, he will really think that he’s some heavenly king who cannot be touched.”

Northern Valiant Sword and Huang Lianxin walked over too. Seeing how he humiliated the small snake, they were speechless.

“Why did you decide to let it live?”

Little Jiang Xue asked curiously. Previously, although Zhou Xuanji was ruthless in stomping on it, the snake was also very fortunate to survive the stomp.

Zhou Xuanji replied, “I want to ask it about that day. You don’t want us to be followed by some mysterious enemy either right?”

The three nodded. They thought about the decapitated head of the old man and shivered in fear.

After that, Zhou Xuanji threw the small snake into the river. Its tail was tied together with the rodent’s foot. As long as the rodent was not thrown into the river, it would not sink.

After resting for two days, they continued their journey.

The small snake’s injuries recovered gradually. But regarding the old man in black, he refused to talk, so Zhou Xuanji decided to starve it for some time.

After five days…

They returned to the Green River Village.

It was still isolated from the world. The villagers enjoyed their everyday living, and the place was peaceful.

As Zhou Xuanji and Little Jiang Xue returned, the villagers were very hospitable. They all remembered them.

That year after Shen Hua died, the Fang Clan did not investigate further. The villagers did not spread the news about it either. It was apparent how insignificant Shen Hua was.

Little Jiang Xue felt a little sad when she knew that after she left, her grandma would not return at all.

Zhou Xuanji, on the other hand, decided to stay in Green River Village for a year, and then they would leave for the Great Zhou Empire.

There were no objections.

During the days that followed, he began to teach the Tri-Source Vein Severing Sword to Northern Valiant Sword.

The Tri-Source Vein Severing Sword did not solely belong to Xiao Jinghong, so it was permissible to teach it to others.

Northern Valiant Sword was pleasantly surprised. He knew how powerful the Tri-Source Vein Severing Sword was.

On that day, Northern Valiant Sword and Huang Lianxin built three wooden huts. They each stayed in one, while Little Jiang Xue and Zhou Xuanji shared one hut.

After the third day, they settled down in Green River Village.

The small snake could no longer persevere. It laid on the ground fatigued and said, “I… submit… give me something to eat… and I will tell you about Li Chimei…”

Zhou Xuanji smiled. He took out a small piece of jerky and left it by its mouth with a glass of water.

The small snake began eating with difficulty.

It only finished the jerky after half an hour, during which the Three-Eyed Rodent kept disturbing it. If not for its powerlessness, it would have cursed and sworn against the stinking rat.

“Tell me honestly, including your background.”

Zhou Xuanji laid on Little Jiang Xue’s thighs and said sluggishly, enjoying the shoulder massage.

The small snake raised its head, “My name is Hegemon-Scaled Back Dragon. We were life-and-death friends with Li Chimei. We used to wander across the world, and to each corner of the Great Zhou. We have been to the Great Shang, to the seven mountains. How carefree and happy we were…” it recounted.

“Tell me the important things!” Zhou Xuanji said impatiently.

The small snake quickly cut to the chase, “At eight years old, Lady Zhao Xuan escaped from the Great Zhou and Li Chimei accepted a bounty from the Empress of Great Zhou, to catch the son of Lady Zhao Xuan alive. He searched for eight years.”

“However, he still could not find Lady Zhao Xuan. We encountered a curse when we were deep into the Gulan Forest. Li Chimei lost his mind and became crazy.”

“Not long ago, Li Chimei had his eyes on you and followed you all the way. But we encountered Xiao Jinghong… If he were not crazy, how could Xiao Jinghong be able to kill him!”

As he spoke about it, the snake’s anger grew.

Zhou Xuanji was stunned, and so was Little Jiang Xue.

Xiao Jinghong?

Could it be that the Sword Noble was secretly protecting them?

“What a nice student,” Zhou Xuanji sighed in amazement.

The alternate world was good, indeed, unlike on earth where the teacher-disciple relationship was just a play.

Here, being one’s teacher for one day meant being one’s father for life.

Although Xiao Jinghong learned sword techniques from many, he only went through the real ritual of making someone his teacher once, and that person was Zhou Xuanji.

“Disciple?”

The small snake was lost, it did not understand.

“So, Li Chimei’s death and your severe injuries, were all by Xiao Jinghong?”

Zhou Xuanji asked. As he spoke, he pointed to his waist, indicating Little Jiang Xue to massage there.

“That’s right!”

The small snake said indignantly, as though it wanted to fight Xiao Jinghong with its life.

“Okay, that should be it. From today onwards, you are my pet, are you okay with that?”

Zhou Xuanji asked sluggishly. A Fifth Rank powerful demon, how can he let it go that easily?

After the small snake recovered to its peak, Zhou Xuanji would have the power to face it in battle.

The little snake stuck out its forked-tongue out and asked, “What if I’m not willing?”

“Deep-fried snake jerky, have you tried it before?”

The small snake’s body shivered. It cursed in its heart. How ruthless this kid was!

He must have been possessed by some devil!

For the sake of survival.

The small snake could only submit to him.

Now, a Fifth Rank demon was added to Zhou Xuanji’s party.

He still kept the small snake tied with the Three-Eyed Rodent, just in case the snake might flee.

The following days were rather peaceful.

Three months later, Zhou Xuanji broke through to Foundation Building Level Ten.

After reaching ten years of age, his bones became more and more mature, and he progressed much faster in his cultivation. Little Jiang Xue was too.

Ten to twenty years old was the golden period for cultivation. It was a critical stage to build one’s foundation.

Four months passed.

Zhou Xuanji broke through to the Enlightening Stage!

“Analyzed that the Sword Owner has reached the Enlightening Stage. Gacha started!”

Ding! Congratulations, the Sword Owner obtained [Gold]…”
