Chapter 10: Second Lottery Chance
Translator: Sparrow_ Editor: Sparrow_, Yuui
Lin Feng worked really hard: fighting the Yu family’s cultivators, tricking Murong Yanran and co., battling fiercely with the old peach tree. Finally, it’s time to reap the harvests.
Looking at Xiao Budian, who was following behind him, Lin Feng was unprecedentedly happy.
After bidding farewell to the people of Stone Village and inquiring about the way to Wu Zhou City, Lin Feng took Xiao Budian and hit the road.
At Wu Zhou, there was still Xiao Yan, a potential MC, waiting for him.
From Stone Village to Wu Zhou, one must go through the vast mountains and traverse the primitive jungles.
These primitive jungles were definitely not like those on Earth. Only people who have seen them could understand this point.
Giant trees shroud the sky and cover the sun. Every year they create an astronomical number of fallen leaves. In this damp and humid area, the defoliation cannot turn into dry soil. Instead, they will go through a very long decaying process, become a flat marsh. Coupled with the moist soil, the jungles were like deathtraps.
The bugs in the jungle were many times bigger than on Earth. Swarms of hovering mosquitos were practically like flocks and flocks of birds!
The tree trunks on the side were intertwined with some old green vines, layer after layer; circle after circle. But once when Lin Feng walked past, a dark green snake suddenly sprang out from the tree vines!
Lin Feng had to admit, trekking in this primitive jungle alone would be a very dangerous matter.
But now, with Xiao Budian, everything was different.
Despite barely being 4 years old, having grown up in the mountains, Xiao Budian was a veteran of jungle life.
With Xiao Budian leading, Lin Feng could leisurely use the time to check out his own Super Founder System as he walked.
After Xiao Budian became his disciple, a new disciple system appeared in the system.
In the disciple system’s name list, there’s still only just Xiao Budian.
Name: Shi Tianhao
Age: 3 years 07 months
Current Level: Qi Disciple Level 2
Potential Attributes: Bone Root → 10; Comprehension → 8; Will → 8; Luck → 8
Note: He has a very strong body; far superior to regular Qi Disciple level 2 cultivators.
Recommended Teaching Plan: Thunder class Tao techniques are recommended. In terms of skills, he can train in both spells and martial arts.
Lin Feng nodded his head in satisfaction; he can perfectly pass Xiao Budian the Nine Heavens Thunder Technique.
He entered into the lottery system again. When he took Xiao Budian in as his disciple, the system rewarded him with a lottery chance.
The dice system and the wheel system, Lin Feng looked at all of the randomly chosen lottery prizes and was slightly disappointed. There was nothing particularly good, he could only place his hopes on the mystery chest.
After winning the Northern Aurora Sword, Lin Feng believed that this mystery chest was actually equivalent to a special big prize and would usually give a good item.
This time Lin Feng chose the wheel system.
In the void, 18 grids formed a round circle. 15 items were placed within together with a mystery chest with a question mark. There also also two empty spaces.
“Chest, chest, chest… Start!”
With a thought, a dot of light appeared in the wheel and started spinning rapidly around the wheel.
Approximately two rounds later, the dot of light’s speed slowed down. Lin Feng closely stared at the light spot, calculating where it would stop in his heart.
The further the dot of light went, the slower it became. It was also getting increasingly closer to the mystery chest.
The three possible items were: the Flame Saber spell, the Evil Suppression Talisman and the mystery chest.
Flame Saber was at a higher level compared to common spells like Fireball and Palm Thunder. It was perfect for Lin Feng who was currently at the Qi Disciple stage. Spells that are too high leveled have high demands and would, instead, not be so easy to use.
The Evil Suppression Talisman was a very versatile talisman. It specially destroys demons and spirits. Even though it’s just a one-time use item, it was more useful than Flame Saber, if it was used properly.
These two item were both in the trading system and they both required a couple hundred trading points.
But their appeal evidently could not compete with the mystery chest.
The light dot arrived at Flame Saber, seemingly wanting to stop. Lin Feng held his breath, not daring to release any sounds but he was constantly yelling in his heart, “Past, past, past!”
As if hearing Lin Feng’s thoughts, the dot of light slowly moved past Flame Saber and arrived at the grid of the Evil Suppression Talisman.
“Past again, past again, past again!”
The dot of light did not disappoint, moving past the Evil Suppression Talisman as Lin Feng had wished.
Lin Feng was delighted in his heart, “My luck is pretty good, a total of two lotteries and I got the special prize each time.”
“Could it be that my luck is also very high?” Lin Feng delightfully thought in his heart. But just as the corners of his eyes glanced towards the wheel, he was almost scared to death.
The light dot was actually still moving and was about to move past the mystery chest.
Lin Feng was immediately anxious, “Stop! Stop! Stop… F*ck!”
The dot of light finally shakily stopped, but it had already passed the mystery chest and landed on the grid after it.
Lin Feng looked over and felt blank.
Spirit Calming Grass.
Has the effect of calming and stabilizing one’s soul and is the main material of the Soul Anchoring Pill. They are extremely rare and are hard to find.
Lin Feng frowned, his gaze freezing on the Spirit Calming Grass that had already fallen into his hands.
A thought flash across his mind, this Spirit Calming Grass might actually have a great use towards him.
But this thought was very hazy. Lin Feng hastily entered the trading system and found the Soul Anchoring Pill and looked at the description.
The Soul Anchoring Pill was useless to regular people but could allow spirits and ghosts who had lost their physical bodies to stabilize their spiritual bodies. They could travel long distances during the day, wander for 10 thousand miles and not damage or break their souls.
Lin Feng pondered for a moment, gradually having an idea but it was still not clear. He needed some time to plan things out. He put the Spirit Calming Grass away and continued to look through the trading system.
After taking Xiao Budian in as his disciple, he was also rewarded 500 trading point which was even more than the initial capital the novice gift provided him.
Lin Feng prepared to trade for a skill: a spell or some martial art.
For Tao techniques, he already had the Nine Heavens Thunder Technique. For magic items, he had the Northern Aurora Sword. He wasn’t really in an urgent need of them. On the contrary, in terms of spells, even though the power of Nine Heaven Thunder Summoning is extraordinary, it had too many restrictions and too many inconveniences during actual combat.
Ultimately, Nine Heaven Thunder Summoning was a formation technique. The user had to plant the spell formation in advance and then draw on the power of the world with the aid of the formation.
But everything has its advantages and disadvantages. The power of formations was great but planting the formation was not easy. Furthermore, spell formations are dead and cannot be moved. Setting up the spell formation also required many materials and time. When encountering sudden situations, it would be very easy to be taken by surprise.
Thus, Lin Feng decided to trade for a spell; he had his eyes on a spell called Cloud Dragon Disappearance.
Escape techniques were very important for cultivators. If one is skilled in escape techniques, they could run away if they are weaker, or chase after the opponent if they are stronger.
Cloud Dragon Disappearance was actually a branch of a greater escape technique. It’s called “Dragon Escape” and it included Cloud Dragon Disappearance, Shadow Dragon Escape, Water Dragon Escape, etc.
However, it would require too many trading points for the entire Dragon Escape spell, and this was not what Lin Feng could afford. He could only take a step back. After seriously considerations, he chose the Cloud Dragon Disappearance branch.
The Cloud Dragon Disappearing Technique allowed short bursts of movement and quick dodging while in small areas. The practitioner’s feet would move like snakes and dragons; it was like riding on a cloud and the opponent won’t even be able to touch the corner of your clothes. It had great value in practical combat.
His consciousness backed out of the system and discovered that Xiao Budian was staring at him in anticipation, “Master, when can I learn Tao techniques with you?”
Lin Feng lightly smiled and patted his head, “Relax, you are Master’s senior disciple, how could Master forget about you?”
Xiao Budian’s black eyes turned big, “Master, I don’t want to be the senior disciple. I… I want to be the youngest disciple.”
Looking at Xiao Budian, who was like a porcelain doll with rosy red lips and pretty white teeth, Lin Feng was a bit confused, “Don’t worry, even though you are still young, you have entered the sect the longest, there won’t be any no problem in you being the eldest disciple. In the future when Master takes in disciples, they’ll all have to quietly be your juniors.”
Xiao Budian grabbed Lin Feng’s hand and shook it, “But Master, I really want to be the youngest disciple.”
Lin Feng said curiously, “Why?”
The tips of Xiao Budian’s feet grinded the ground as he lowered his head in embarrassment, ” Back in the village, it was always the youngest child who got doted on…In the village, I was the youngest child so everybody adored me the most…”
Lin Feng looked dumbfounded at the mischievous Xiao Budian in front of him. After a long time, Lin Feng said in a half-angry, half-joking tone, “You little imp, I don’t know if I should call you smart or foolish. That’s in your Stone Village, not every place is the same.”
“On the contrary, there are places where the younger ones get bullied.”
Lin Feng looked at Xiao Budian with a faint smile, “Have you thought about this clearly? There’s no problem if you want to be the smallest. Don’t regret it when your seniors tell you to go get washing water or scrub the toilet.”
Xiao Budian’s eyes turned big, holding onto Lin Feng’s hand and shaking it as he grinned. He said smilingly, “I’ll get washing water, scrub the toilet and massage the shoulders for Master. With Master around, Xiao Budian being so well behaved, surely my seniors won’t trouble me.”
Lin Feng looked at the little imp in front of him and went silent for a short while. In the end, he let out a laugh and poked Xiao Budian’s forehead, “Oh you…”
Xiao Budian revealed an innocent smile and laughed.
