Chapter 295: Bloodline
Translator: Dragon Boat Translation Editor: Dragon Boat Translation
The fleeting sword pearl resembled the their own sect’s Zhongyuan Sword, but Zeng Zaiwen couldn’t be certain. He didn’t know whether the person who had saved him and Mo Yuanfei was a friend or foe.
So now, the wisest choice was to stand still, trying not to provoke this powerful individual.
A blur flashed next to the fallen monster, eventually coalescing into a figure. It was none other than Chen Fei, who had rushed over upon hearing the commotion from a distance.
In the eyes of Zeng Zaiwen and Mo Yuanfei, the unbeatable monster couldn’t even withstand a single one of Chen Fei’s sword pearls. This demonstrated a tremendous gap in strength.
Chen… Master Chen!”
Seeing Chen Fei’s appearance, the unease in Zeng Zaiwen’s heart finally dissipated. He let out a heavy sigh of relief, and Mo Yuanfei beside him did the same.
“Are you okay?”
Chen Fei glanced at Zeng Zaiwen and Mo Yuanfei. Their conditions were far from good, one severely injured and incapacitated, the other with only a fraction of his strength left.
If Chen Fei had arrived even slightly later, the two of them would probably have been beaten to a pulp by this monster.
“Thank you, Master Chen, for intervening to save us. We’re alright!”
Zeng Zaiwen quickly expressed his gratitude, then took out a healing pill and popped it into his mouth. He glanced at Chen Fei for approval and, seeing no objection, limped over to sit down on a nearby rock.
Mo Yuanfei, after thanking Chen Fei, began healing his own injuries while sneakily observing Chen Fei’s figure.
In the eyes of disciples, Chen Fei was a legendary figure. Mo Yuanfei still remembered the scene when Chen Fei challenged Zeng Zaiwen in Zeng Zaiwen’s courtyard on the True Transmission Peak.
It had been three years since then, but Mo Yuanfei still vividly recalled that moment. Not for any particular reason, but because during that encounter, he had mocked Chen Fei a few times, laughing at him for overestimating his abilities.
Now, in hindsight, Mo Yuanfei knew he had been shortsighted.
Because from that point onwards, Chen Fei had embarked on his path to greatness. He went from being a True Transmission disciple to competing at the peak of the Immortal Cloud Sword Sect, ultimately becoming a formidable cultivator in the Aperture Tempering realm. Recently, he even defeated his former rival, Shen Tucang.
Step by step, Chen Fei had made an unwavering ascent.
Seeing Chen Fei again now, and being rescued by him, Mo Yuanfei’s emotions were complex. He couldn’t explain it clearly, but he felt a mixture of shame and profound admiration for Chen Fei.
Mo Yuanfei felt this way, and so did Zeng Zaiwen. Mo Yuanfei had merely been an observer initially, but Zeng Zaiwen had directly faced Chen Fei in combat.
The defeat in that battle had initially been hard for Zeng Zaiwen to accept, leaving him despondent for a while. However, as Chen Fei continued to rise, Zeng Zaiwen eventually came to terms with his loss, accepting the outcome.
With so many True Transmission disciples in the Immortal Cloud Sword Sect unable to defeat Chen Fei, Zeng Zaiwen reasoned that losing to him was perfectly normal.
Chen Fei gazed at the corpse of the ape-like monster on the ground and extended his right hand forward. The monster core flew out from the creature’s body.
Crystal clear and brimming with immense energy, this was the essence of the ape-like monster. However, for Chen Fei at his current level, its utility was limited.
If he were still in the Body Refining realm, he could have used this monster core to temper his body and accelerate his cultivation progress. But now, this monster core seemed rather unnecessary.
It couldn’t enhance his cultivation of elemental power, provided no assistance to his core soul energy, and as for body refinement, Chen Fei’s physique had already reached a point where a mere First-tier monster core wouldn’t make a noticeable difference.
Its sole purpose might be to sell it.
Chen Fei waved his right hand, sweeping the monster’s corpse in front of both Zeng Zaiwen and Mo Yuanfei. The body of a monster was highly valuable to cultivators in the Body Refining realm.
Since Chen Fei had already taken the monster core, this optional ape-like monster’s flesh held little significance for him.
Zeng Zaiwen and Mo Yuanfei looked at Chen Fei in surprise. While they had been the ones injured, it was clear that their weakness had nothing to do with the rights to acquire items—they were just not strong enough.
“There don’t seem to be any other immediate dangers nearby. Be cautious on your own,” Chen Fei said before his figure transformed into a blur and disappeared.
“Farewell, Master Chen!” Zeng Zaiwen quickly stood up and spoke, but when he looked up again, Chen Fei was nowhere to be seen.
“Let’s deal with the ape-like monster’s corpse first; otherwise, the scent might attract other monsters,” Zeng Zaiwen said as he approached the corpse with his blade in hand. Mo Yuanfei, unable to rest, came over as well, wearing an involuntary smile on his face.
For cultivators in the Aperture Tempering realm, this First-tier monster was more of a hindrance than a benefit. However, for Zeng Zaiwen and Mo Yuanfei, it represented a valuable opportunity. Not only could it help alleviate their injuries, but it could also provide a slight boost to their cultivation.
Chen Fei’s figure flickered as he ran toward the location of the Baka Cave. Along the way, he occasionally stopped to gather spirit herbs. As for the numerous common herbs, unless their age was exceptionally high, Chen Fei wouldn’t even pause to collect them.
Compared to the past, Chen Fei’s mindset and perspective had certainly changed.
After circling around for a while, Chen Fei gradually aligned with the terrain of the previous mystic realm, and the Baka Cave grew closer. Meanwhile, his harvest of spirit herbs increased, with no less than ten in just a short hour.
Although they were all relatively common spirit herbs without the ability to enhance mental power, Chen Fei was still delighted. After all, it was money, and substantial money at that. Finding a windfall like this made anyone happy.
After nearly an incense stick’s worth of time, Chen Fei finally arrived at the entrance of the Baka Cave.
Compared to the past, there had been significant changes in this area, but fortunately, the entrance to the cave remained intact.
Chen Fei took a few steps forward, but when he was about ten meters away, he couldn’t help but pause. Inside the cave, there were living creatures, and more than one.
Baka was known to live alone, and the creatures’ auras within the cave were completely different from Baka’s. Moreover, Chen Fei had a vague feeling that the creatures’ auras inside the cave seemed strangely familiar to him.
Chen Fei gently tapped the ground with his Qianyuan Sword. The entire ground suddenly trembled, and a force traveled through the ground, reaching directly into the cave, producing a muffled sound.
Instantly, a pair of crimson eyes appeared at the cave entrance, glaring at Chen Fei with a fierce and cold-blooded gaze.
Seeing those pair of eyes, Chen Fei was momentarily taken aback and finally remembered why he found this aura somewhat familiar—it was the same as those rabbit demons he had encountered before.
Chen Fei had a deep impression of these rabbit demons because of their unique bloodline. In the Aperture Tempering realm, they might not be invincible, but if you didn’t understand the nature of their bloodline, you could easily be severely restrained by them.
Almost damage-free recovery and increasing resistance to the harm they inflicted, these abilities made them incredibly challenging opponents for ordinary Aperture Tempering realm cultivators. The longer the battle, the more it favored the rabbit demons.
How could rabbit demons be in Baka’s cave, and where had Baka gone?
A thought crossed Chen Fei’s mind, but unfortunately, there was no one to provide him with an answer.
Chen Fei looked at the rabbit demon in front of the cave. He pointed his sword towards the ground, sending an even stronger force into the cave.
The rabbit demon at the cave entrance had a weak aura, and judging by its eyes, it didn’t seem particularly intelligent, so communication was likely impossible.
However, inside the cave, Chen Fei sensed a much stronger aura, nearly reaching the level of the Second-tier. It was on par with the ape demon he had encountered earlier—a creature that had reached the level of Second-tier demons but was lacking something to cultivator fully evolve.
For a cultivator to break through to the Aperture Tempering realm was an extremely difficult feat. Similarly, for a First-tier monster to advance to the Second-tier was a significant challenge.
Of course, because of the benefits of this mystic realm itself, the creatures here had a much easier time making breakthroughs, making it simpler for them.
The rabbit demon in front of the cave felt Chen Fei’s attack, but before it could leap at Chen Fei, it was suddenly suppressed by a tremendous force field. It struggled weakly on the ground, unable to move.
The cave quivered continuously due to Chen Fei’s force. Considering this was once Baka’s residence, Chen Fei was cautious not to exert too much force, as it might collapse the cave entirely with a single powerful strike.
One by one, the rabbit demons began to bounce out of the cave, only to be immediately immobilized by the powerful elemental force field.
In just a short while, more than a dozen rabbit demons emerged from the cave. Chen Fei stopped shaking the cave when the one with the strength of a First-tier apex rabbit demon appeared.
This First-tier apex rabbit demon emitted a hissing sound, much like the hiss of a snake. It was clearly wary of Chen Fei but unwilling to be disposed of so easily.
The other less intelligent rabbit demons were struggling fiercely, even if it meant tearing their flesh and blood apart.
Chen Fei attempted to use his core soul energy to transmit an image of Baka into the mind of the First-tier apex rabbit demon. The rabbit demon’s body trembled but didn’t provide any direct response.
Chen Fei furrowed his brow slightly and used his elemental force to sweep these rabbit demons aside, then jumped into the cave.
He had been curious about this cave but hadn’t dared to enter directly before.
Now, as he entered it for the first time, he discovered that it was a natural limestone cave with an opening at the top. Beneath the cave, Chen Fei saw a large area of abandoned medicinal fields.
“Did Baka grow all these herbs himself?”
Chen Fei’s expression changed slightly as he approached the medicinal fields. It was clear that the fields had been abandoned for quite some time, indicating that Baka hadn’t been back in a long while.
These rabbit demons likely discovered this place and migrated here.
“Where would Bacca go if he’s not living in his own cave?”
Chen Fei stood up, his brow furrowing slightly, and he questioned the rabbit demons outside, but he couldn’t elicit any useful information.
“Hmm? What’s this?”
As Chen Fei was about to leave, he suddenly noticed a small section of dark green mountain wall out of the corner of his eye. Compared to the other mountain walls, this one had an unusual color, and there were some cracks on it.
Chen Fei swiftly approached this section of the mountain wall, and a faint, somewhat pungent odor reached his nostrils. It was slightly discomforting, and an ordinary person exposed to it for an extended period might experience severe discomfort.
“A Zhongyuan Force Field? Who from the Primordial Sword Sect is down below?”
A voice suddenly came from outside. Chen Fei gazed at the mountain wall, used his elemental force to extract a small piece, and tucked it into his sleeve. Then, his figure flashed, and he appeared outside the cave..
