Chapter 320 – Lightning’s Disciple
He was stepping on a steel blade that had a length of 1.6 meters, a handle that was 30 centimeters, and the width of the blade was 15 centimeters. The steel blade looked ordinary but it definitely wasn’t simple!
There was a bright golden glow surrounding the blade while it was mixed with a lighter yellow internal energy. Because the golden glow was too bright, one wouldn’t notice where his internal energy was. Where did he get this steel blade from?
While flying through the Chaotic Star Sea, his speed wasn’t fast but when compared to the modern airplanes, there was no difference.
“I wonder how master is… and this place is so vast, how on earth am I going to search for him?” This person looked around at a loss, but didn’t stop flying and kept flying forward.
This place had a lot of planets and most of them were the size of meteorites. Some of them were only about the size of your average city. This person happened to stop at a planet that wasn’t that big and looked down.
“This place isn’t too bad, there’s green grass and a river!” One could see the fields of green were the vegetation and the blue lines were the water which wasn’t hard to tell. This person was quite interested in the area and started slowly descending.
“Stop! Who are you?” A voice cried out. Just as he landed, he quickly turned around and noticed a youth that was about eleven or twelve years old. Although he was young, his body looked quite sturdy and much more muscular than normal kids of his age. One could see this youth purse his lips together as he stared at the newly arrived person with caution.
“There are people here?” This person was suddenly surprised as he revealed a shameless smile. “Little friend, are there any adults around? I want to ask for directions.”
“Ask for directions? Where did you come from?” Ask the youth. Although this person in front of him gave him the goose bumps from the smile, at least he didn’t look too despicable.
“I came from a very very far away place.”
The youth pursed his lips and raised his head in thought for a while before saying: “Follow me. Don’t even think of having any evil thoughts because my two uncles are very powerful.”
“Uh…” This person blinked a few times but still followed behind the youth.
This place gave one the feeling of a rural village. With mountains and vast plains of grass, it gave one a feeling of returning to nature. As they continued walking, this person noticed some unknown animals in large quantities. They were all surrounded by wooden fences which meant these animals were domesticated. If he didn’t guess wrong, these animals were grown for their meat. But since these were unknown to him, it would probably be hard for him to swallow their meat so it’s best not to care about them for now.
“Uncle! Uncle! There’s an outsider that’s arrived here!” This youth was yelling towards a place that looked like a village off in the distance. This was a small town with not a lot of inhabitants, but it looked very peaceful and quiet and completely different from what this person heard about the Chaotic Star Sea.
A simple and honest looking middle aged man with a small moustache came out. He was wearing a light blue long robe and had a smile on his face but it wasn’t difficult to see that his eyes were filled with vigilance. “Friend, what is your purpose for coming to our Yanrong Town?”
After seeing an adult of this place, this person finally cleared his throat and turned serious. “I am here to inquire about dao er¹.”
“Dao Er? Who’s Dao Er?” The middle-aged man seemed to be at a loss, unable to understand the words of this person.
“Uh…” While scratching his head, cold sweat started dripping down this person’s back. After thinking for a bit and changing his speech pattern, “I’m hoping to inquire about a place.”
“Please go ahead.” The middle-aged man politely said.
“Can you please tell me how to get to the Immortal World? I’m in a hurry to locate a friend.” This person said.
The middle-aged man was a bit surprised, “Why would this friend want to go to the Immortal World? Please don’t blame this one for reminding you but the Immortal World isn’t a place where one can easily get to. From what I can tell, this friend only has the strength at the early Gold Core stage. Wanting to safely traverse the depths of the Chaotic Star Sea to reach the Immortal World is not an easy feat! I once had a friend that until now, I haven’t heard any news from. I have no idea if he succeeded in entering the Immortal World or has halfway… sigh. In short, this friend here must seriously reconsider this.”
“It looks like the Immortal World is definitely not an easy place to reach. It seems like that guy from the Violet Gold Hall didn’t lie to me.” This person mumbled.
“Violet Gold Hall? Friend, you’re speaking about the famous Violet Gold Hall?” The middle-aged man exclaimed with wide eyes.
“Right, are there any problems with that?”
The middle-aged man cleared his throat, “The Violet Gold Hall is one of the five great Sects, how come you are familiar with them?”
After thinking for a bit, this person felt there was no need to hide it. “Back then, there were a bunch of Sects from the Immortal World who travelled to my place in search for my master. They wanted to win him over but were rejected by him. Later, a person from the Violet Gold Hall said that once I’ve cultivated my Gold Core, I could find him and join his Sect. He will then help me in locating my master.” This person rubbed his chin as he spoke while recalling his memory.
“The ring on your finger, where did you get it from?!” The middle-aged lost control and exclaimed out loud because the tattered looking ring looked very familiar and he was sure he had seen it before somewhere.
“This? This ring and my master’s ring are a pair, but it was in the hands of the Pope before. I had to personally go there and persuade the Pope for a long time before he would give it to me. What about it? Do you recognize it?” This person asked unconsciously but didn’t realize he would get an unexpected result.
“Is your master called Lightning?” The middle-aged man asked.
This person racked his brains in pondering this name but quickly came to a conclusion. A joyous expression was immediately revealed on his face!
“Yes! Yes! Master had once used the name Lightning. It’s the same name he used in the United States when he joined the Bounty Hunters Guild! It has to be master! It has to be him!”
Although he didn’t know what this person was saying about United States or something bounty hunter, it was clear the two of them were talking about the same person.
“This is great! I never imagined I would encounter brother Lightning’s disciple! My name is Tian Ye; may I know your great name?”
“Quick, quick! All my fellow brothers and sister in town, our benefactor’s family has come to our small town! Everyone quickly come out to meet him!” This person started yelling in happiness towards the town. In a short dozens of seconds, the main road was filled with the townsfolk. Even though there weren’t a lot of people, there were still several dozens of them. The most eye-catching group was a bunch of beautiful young girls whose eyes were filled with passion, immediately causing Liu Hao to start drooling.
“Brother Tian Ye!” A crude yell was heard causing everyone to turn around.
Liu Hao’s eyebrows went up as he said to himself: “Oh crap, this guy’s image is too f*cking chic!”
With fiery red hair, and even his eyebrows and beard were red. The clothes he wore also matched the color of his hair… he was simply a walking flame!
“Brother Yanrong, come meet this person who is brother Lightning’s disciple.”
Yanrong strutted over past the crowd and grabbed onto Liu Hao’s hand. Liu Hao started sweating again – aren’t these people a little over friendly?”
¹ – He’s looking for directions so he started speaking in formal ancient speech.
