“The ancestor is amazing!”
“Of course. He has never let down the people of the South Continent!”
At a restaurant in the South Continent…
As the prenatal qi grew stronger, the beasts from many parts of the South Continent also started gaining prenatal qi.
At a table, a group of people were eating beast meat and drinking spirit wine.
The warriors in the restaurant were under the influence of alcohol. Their faces were flushed and they seemed excited.
In the middle of the restaurant, a fat man spoke loudly, “The ancestor is still alive. I saw him the other day and we drank some wine together.”
“If you really went drinking with him, why would you still come here to drink?”
Everyone booed him.
“When I was drinking with him, I didn’t know that he was the master!”
“Huh! What a bragger! Then how did you find out later on?”
“That’s a secret,” said the fat man as he took a sip of wine.
“You sure know how to spin a story!”
No one believed him and they turned away in disbelief.
Recently, a lot of people were going around and bragging about their experiences.
Even when facing the people of Zhongzhou, they would proudly claim that they knew the ancestor personally.
They just wanted other people to be envious of them.
“I’m not bragging,” said the fat man anxiously.
“Some people say that the ancestor and the Zhongzhou guy died together.”
“They don’t know what they’re talking about!”
In the corner, a woman suddenly stood up and stared at the fat man. “What do you mean? The ancestor is still alive?” she asked.
The fat man noticed how beautiful this woman was, and his eyes lit up as he puffed out his chest.
“Are you sure about this?” The young woman looked at him expectedly.
Just then, a young warrior interrupted the conversation. “Miss, don’t listen to his nonsense. He’s just bragging! Think about it. The old man from the Qianyuan Sacred Ground is so powerful. The ancestor is already a hero for being able to fight that old thing for so long. But he might have been killed by the people in the Temple of War People.”
He couldn’t understand why this fat man was bragging, and he was annoyed that his bragging had attracted the attention of a beautiful young woman.
He wasn’t going to let this fat guy steal the limelight.
“Don’t say that about the ancestor!”
The South Continent people in the restaurant jumped up to their feet.
The girl had suddenly drawn a sword against the young man’s neck.
“What…what’s wrong…” The young man broke out into cold sweat.
“I will spare your ignorant life today. Fatty, why do you say the ancestor is still alive?”
The girl pointed her sword at the fat man.
Her eyes were filled with a cold, murderous gaze.
“It’s very simple! If the man from the Qianyuan Sacred Ground is dead, the other party must still be alive.” Beads of sweat appeared on the fat man’s forehead.
The sweat dripped down his neck.
“You better hope you’re right!”
After the girl left, the restaurant fell silent.
After a while, all that was heard was the sound of chewing.
The girl headed back to the hall, her head filled with confusion.
“A’mu, Sir may still be alive!”
In the hall, A’mu lay on the ground, drunk. His eyes were dull and he was muttering to himself.
Hearing Bailian’s words, A’mu suddenly got up from the ground and said in a hoarse voice, “Bailian, where did you hear this from?”
“After the battle, if the old man was dead, Sir is likely to be alive,” Bailian said.
A’mu thought about it for a moment, then his frustrated expression faded. “That seems possible!”
“Then where shall we start looking for Sir?”
“If he doesn’t want to be found, how can we find him? Besides, we’ve faced so many difficulties in the South Continent.” A’mu came to this realization, and his face fell.
Even if Sir was alive, he might be badly injured.
“If Sir is not here, what should we do?” Bai Lian cried out anxiously.
Somewhere in the South Continent…
Li Mu stood at the top of the mountain, looking at the sky.
The red sun rose in the horizon.
In the distance was a long river.
“Looking at beautiful scenery always makes me feel so happy.”
He reached out his hand and a jade plate suddenly appeared.
Li Mu took in a deep breath as he stared at the contents etched on the jade plate.
Based on the records found in Qianyuan Sacred Ground, the body of the demon was at the foot of this mountain.
The river and mountain scenery was really picturesque.
But such a disgusting thing was buried underneath it all.
At noon, Li Mu leaped off the cliff.
Surrounded by sword qi, he quickly drilled a big hole under the cliff.
After a long time had passed, he found himself standing in a large pit.
There was a large box, wrapped up in more than thirty bronze and iron chains.
Li Mu easily slashed the chains and opened the box.
Black qi erupted from the opened box. There was a head inside.
It had pointed ears, blue eyes and a black face.
It looked similar to the disgusting blood bats in Australia he had seen in his previous life.
He summoned thunder and lightning, blasting the demon’s head into pieces.
Li Mu was left standing in another pit.
At the same time, prenatal qi started flooding the South Continent.
“Was it a bat or a human?”
The demon gave Li Mu the feeling that it was not human.
After having encountered so many demons, Li Mu felt that this was a new species.
They would definitely evolve after sucking so much human blood.
But would they change so much that they became a new species?
Li Mu had never encountered something like this before.
In another part of the world…
A jade plate shattered in the middle of a cave.
There was a faint sound coming from the dark cave.
“The Fifth Prince!”
“Who did this?”
“Twenty thousand years ago, His Highness stubbornly went to the part of the world with the human race and never returned.”
“The human race again! Damn it! Gather everyone. I am going to destroy all the humans.” The roar echoed in the cave.
Countless blue and green eyes lit up in the cave.
Soon, the sound of flapping wings filled the cave.
Suddenly, a human-like webbed figure appeared at the entrance of the cave.
After destroying the old demon, Li Mu had stayed on the top of the mountain for half a year.
“Curiosity killed the cat! I am already an invincible master in this part of the world. Why can’t I just live happily ever after?”
He was still very curious.
So, he went to the East Continent.
He had many questions to ask Xu Xiao.
The last demon in the East Continent had disappeared after Xu Xiao attacked it.
Peace was restored in the world.
As if nothing had ever happened.
The East Continent was ready for a fresh start after the attack by the demons.
Li Mu appeared in an attic in Muyang City, .
As usual, he booked an entire restaurant for drinking at, while listening to the warriors’ chatter.
After half a month, Li Mu released a little essence.
Xu Xiao appeared in the attic.
“Senior,” Xu Xiao said respectfully.
“I’m bored, so I summoned you to have a chat.”
“If this is what you want, of course I will obey,” said Xu Xiao.
Li Mu pointed to the seat in front of him. “Take a seat,” he said.
After settling down, Xu Xiao craned his neck and asked, “Senior, did you kill the old man from Qianyuan Sacred Ground?”
“Yes.” Li Mu admitted.
There were so few masters in this part of the world.
It was impossible for him to deny it.
It was better for him to admit it and gain Xu Xiao’s respect. More importantly, it would give him an opportunity to ask more questions.
“Senior, you’re truly amazing! You actually managed to kill that old man. I can’t believe it,” said Xu Xiao excitedly.
“Did you doubt my abilities?”
“Of course not. You must be very powerful to be able to shatter the bones of the demon,” Xu Xiao hurriedly said.
Li Mu nodded. “I want to know about the origin of your Xu Family, including the city where you were from in the past.”
