Killing God - Chapter 256
Chapter 256 Worship
Mountain Bear Hall?
Shen Shi instantly thought of the reason why he was somewhat familiar with this name. It was the first time he had entered the mountain range. On the mountain path, he had encountered a young man and woman who seemed to be from one of the four great families of Liuyun City, the Xu Clan. There was a slight conflict between them for some strange reason. At that time, there seemed to be a few cultivators from Mountain Bear Hall standing by and watching.
Later, when he left, although he did not know what had happened, he could clearly hear a scream coming from behind as he walked. Shen Shi still didn’t know what happened after that day, but he didn’t think it would be a peaceful and beautiful thing. However, he had never met those people before, and the people from the Xu Clan also had conflicts with him, so Shen Shi didn’t intend to meddle in other people’s affairs.
However, today, he suddenly heard the name of the Shanxiong Hall sect. He couldn’t help but feel a slight shock in his heart. He stopped and looked at the cultivator Xie Feiguang who had suddenly appeared from the side. He looked to be in his early twenties. He was of medium build, had straight features, and had a smile hanging on his lips. At first glance, he didn’t have a bad impression of his attitude.
However, when the two brothers were chatting, they were suddenly blocked in front of them. They were both shocked. In addition, there were many cultivators gathered in and out of Gaoling City, and the cultivation world was filled with dangers. Therefore, the two of them had expressions of vigilance on their faces almost at the same time. The thin man took a step back and frowned.
“What Mountain Bear Hall? I have never heard of it. What do you mean by blocking the path of our Senior Brothers and Senior Brothers?”
Jie Feiguang smiled and said without being angry, “It was me who took the liberty of forgiving you two. However, I truly have no other thoughts. I only love beast pets the most in my life. In addition, I also have some beast control techniques in my sect. That’s why I accidentally overheard Senior Brother talking about the strange demonic pig. I couldn’t help but be overjoyed and rashly disturbed.”
Hearing what he said, the bearded and skinny fellow disciple’s complexion became slightly better. However, Shen Shi, who was standing at the side, intentionally or unintentionally stopped, his expression immediately darkened as he coldly looked at Xie Feiguang.
However, although the thin junior apprentice-brother’s expression had softened a little, he clearly did not have any confidence in Xie Feiguang, a stranger he had just met. He had been wandering around in the cultivation world these days. No matter if it was a sect disciple or a rogue cultivator, those with a bit of brains would not believe others easily. Therefore, he looked at the hostility and retreated slightly, but did not say anything else. He only said indifferently, “Senior Brother and I still have things to attend to, so I won’t disturb you.”
Apparently, the bearded Senior Brother Chen had the same intentions as his Junior Brother. He glanced at Xie Feiguang unhappily, and then the two of them stepped forward, preparing to bypass Xie Feiguang and continue walking forward. However, they had only taken a step when Jie Feiguang suddenly reached out to stop them.
At this moment, the skinny man and Senior Brother Chen’s expressions changed drastically. Just as Xie Feiguang was about to shout angrily, Feiguang suddenly took out a sparkling spirit crystal from his bosom and handed it over. He smiled and said, “Don’t worry, brother. I also know that it’s inappropriate to ask so rashly. If you two don’t mind, this spirit crystal will be used as a fee for me to buy this information from you. Is that good?”
The skinny man paused and hesitated for a moment before turning to look at Senior Brother Chen. Obviously, he was somewhat tempted. After all, that was just a scene he had accidentally witnessed. It would be useless if he didn’t go to his own home. However, if he could obtain spirit crystals, wouldn’t it be an unexpected windfall?
The bearded Senior Brother Chen looked older than his Junior Brother. Although he immediately stopped, he rolled his eyes and stretched out three fingers. He said, “Three, I’ll have Junior Brother tell you where the black pig is.”
Jie Feiguang’s expression changed slightly, as if he was a little unhappy. Spirit crystals were necessary for all cultivators to cultivate. They could even be used as money for buying and selling all kinds of spirit materials. Therefore, there were few cultivators who didn’t value spirit crystals unless they were proud children from wealthy families.
And a piece of news that didn’t sound very reliable was actually asking for three spirit crystals. This price was indeed a bit expensive. The skinny man standing beside Senior Brother Chen seemed to be hesitating. Instead, he became anxious. He seemed to be a little afraid that this wronged person would retreat. After waiting for a while for Flying Light to speak, he hurriedly said, “Well, let’s each take a step back. How about buying two spirit crystals for this piece of news?” “I’m not afraid to tell you that the black pig is indeed different from the others. If it can control thousands of mountain pigs, it must be a high-grade demonic beast with a mutated bloodline. If you can take it as a beast pet, you will definitely not be disappointed.”
Xie Feiguang pondered for a moment before nodding. He took out a spirit crystal from his bosom and handed it to the skinny man. “Alright, then I’ll bet once.”
The bearded Senior Brother Chen seemed to be somewhat dissatisfied. He looked at the thin man with some complaints, but the thin man happily took the spirit crystal. He didn’t care about his Senior Brother at all. Then, he dragged Xie Feiguang to a secluded corner of the road and whispered to him for a while.
Xie Feiguang stood beside the skinny man and listened attentively for a while. His expression was indifferent. Occasionally, he would ask the skinny man in a low voice as if he was confirming something. In the end, he seemed to have finally gotten the information he wanted. He nodded to show that he understood. Then, he cupped his hands towards the two of them and left without saying a word.
The skinny man who had unexpectedly made a fortune on the road looked very happy. He held the two spirit crystals and laughed while Senior Brother Chen complained, “Why are you in such a hurry? I think that fellow is very anxious. Perhaps he will really give three spirit crystals after a while.”
The skinny man laughed, but waved his hand and said, “Content is always happiness, contentment is always happiness …”
Before they could finish speaking, another figure suddenly appeared in front of them. The two of them raised their heads in shock and saw an unfamiliar young man standing in front of them. He expressionlessly stretched out his palm and two spirit crystals rolled in his palm.
“I want to hear what you said to that person just now.”
Shen Shi said indifferently.
In the mountains of the high hills, deep in the mountains and forests.
From the outside, this vast, verdant and lush forest was still calm and vibrant. It was no different from usual. However, on the other side of the forest, on the vast territory of demonic beasts beneath the mountains and trees, tremendous changes had taken place.
The wild boars and demonic beasts that used to be at the bottom of the food chain of demonic beasts had once run into ferocious beasts all day long. The raptors, who had been able to survive for thousands of years only by giving birth to many cubs, had now become the rulers of this mountain forest.
Almost all of the high-grade demonic beasts were either killed or chased out of this territory in the vast forest area of dozens of mountaintops. All that remained were wild beasts that posed no threat to the wild boars. Perhaps these unintelligent wild boars and demonic beasts did not have the emotions of breathing out the pain and depression of countless ancestors, but even if it was just instinct, they had occupied this forest that was now like heaven. Every day of every pig demon seemed to be spent in carnival.
Then, all the grey earth pigs, fire-striped pigs, and mountain pigs, from young to young, from male to female, were now completely devoted to prostrating under the feet of the black pig that looked like a heavenly deity, although this strange black pig king looked different from most of the wild boars and demonic beasts in this mountain forest.
Pig-type demonic beasts were omnivorous. Sometimes, they would eat wild fruits and tender leaves, but most of the time, they still ate meat. The strange Black Pig King actually never ate meat, only eating grass, and all sorts of strange spiritual herbs.
Pig demons usually live in their own caves, However, the black pig never slept in the cave. It seemed to like the height of the mountain peak. Thus, after leading the wild boars to drive away the ferocious beasts and unify the mountain forest, the black pig king obediently occupied the highest mountain here. It turned out that this was the territory of the two incomparably ferocious Dark King Tigers.
After the wild boars and demonic beasts became the masters of this mountain forest, every day, pig demons would plunder the nest of those originally high-grade demonic beasts. Then, they would send the items they found to the highest mountain and pile them up in front of the Black Pig King, carefully treating them as sacrifices.
There were many good things in these offerings. There were all kinds of delicious meat and even a lot of nourishing demonic beast flesh, which made the pig demons drool. However, for some reason, the Black Pig King was not interested in this at all. All of them waved their hooves and gave it to the pigs below.
The pig demons were puzzled. However, although their brains were often rather stupid, out of respect for the Black Pig King, one of the hundreds of wild boars finally opened its aperture. One time, it found some spirit herbs from a high-grade demon beast’s nest and sent them over.
The Black Pig King pig, Yan Dayue, was overjoyed. He immediately accepted it and distributed more demonic beast meat to this enlightened mountain pig the next time he distributed the offerings.
When the wild boars saw this scene, they immediately felt an epiphany. They screamed and turned around to run. The wild boar demonic beast was a low-grade demonic beast that had yet to develop its intelligence, He was hardly interested in spirit herbs, but high-grade demonic beasts were different. Normally, not only would he recognize spirit herbs that were rich in spirit energy, he would also eat them from time to time. When there was more than enough spirit herbs, he would even store them in his nest. In fact, if a high-grade spirit herb suddenly appeared in a certain place, there would often be many high-grade demonic beasts competing for it.
So in the nests of those high-grade demonic beasts, The amount of spirit herbs stored was quite large. However, under the current situation, as all the wild boars and demonic beasts were happily moving, countless spirit herbs were found or dug out from the nests of those demonic beasts, and piles after piles of spirit herbs were sent to the highest mountain without any money. Normally, after sending so many spirit herbs over, the Black Pig Throne should have been piled up into a small mountain. However, for some reason, the spirit herbs mysteriously disappeared not long after they were sent over, and it was unknown where they ended up.
However, the Black Pig King laughed happily and proudly. From then on, he would often reverberate in the mountains. Every day, he would eat and sleep while salivating while hugging spiritual herbs. It seemed that he had been leisurely living like this.
Until one day, when Xiao Hei was lying on his stomach and was about to fall asleep, he suddenly heard a commotion from the pig demons at the foot of the mountain. Xiao Hei chewed on the residual roots of the spiritual herbs in his mouth and wiped the saliva off his mouth. He raised his head and looked down. Suddenly, he stood up in shock.
Suddenly, a few strange shadows floated past the forest below the mountain. They were full of shadows and carried a bit of cold and gloomy death intent. Surprisingly, they were actually a few skeletal ghosts, roaring in the forest with their teeth and claws open.
