Chapter 40: Tortoise Had Grown Up
Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
In the year 563, winter, December.
The White Shirt Angel who had gone missing for three years had appeared once again.
The building located at Mt. Baifeng was named White Shirt Palace.
The huge door was opened and it accepted all the prodigies in the entire world.
The world was shocked by its existence. Lots of overwhelming organizations had come forth to congratulate them.
Even though White Shirt Palace was just built.
There was only one person, a mountain, a thatching, and nothing else.
However, that did not stop the prodigies in the world from pursuing it.
Because as long as it was that person, that was all that mattered!
That person could replace numerous famous tutors.
That person could overwhelm a clan.
That person was a King!
It was that point that mattered.
As for other issues, they could just prepare for it themselves.
In a blink of an eye, ten years had passed.
In the Xia kingdom, there was the Snow Empress standing guard that terrified the other clans.
Within the kingdom, there was the White Shirt Empress, solving the mysteries of cultivating, training prodigies, and strengthening the prowess of the Xia clan.
It was a prosperous scene.
Ten years had passed and Chu He’s Golden Ninth Turns had attained the Ninth Level of the Fourth Turn and was heading toward the Fifth Turn.
His Golden Manifestation of Buddha’s Form had also successfully reached the third level. When it was unleashed, it was just like a Buddha that could eliminate enemies even hundreds of miles away!
The tortoise was holding a table cloth in a dull manner and was done cleaning the book depository.
More than ten years had passed and it had already completed cultivating to the Precelestial Ninth Level. It was currently starting to accumulate experience.
Its head got larger and its appearance was constantly changing. Last time, it was a little tortoise, now it looked like an elephant.
Last time, it could clean up the place pretty easily, but currently, it had to twist around like a fat man trying to tidy up a cramped room. One glance was enough to make one feel sorry for it.
However, that was its method of accumulating experience. Once it cultivated to a point, it would use its experience to breakthrough. When that happened, it would be able to change its body size into whatever size it wanted to.
If not, with the way it was increasing in size, perhaps the book depository would not be able to take it in!
The space was small and the tortoise was huge.
If it was not for Chu He placing lots of spells in the book depository, the entire book depository would have collapsed if it was careless for a moment and did not restrain its strength.
“This is getting ridiculous. It’s just a simple clean-up, and it’s making such a ruckus.”
Chu He looked at the huge tortoise disdainfully.
‘Its head is so big and it’s stroking it doesn’t feel nice. Besides, it’s getting uglier the bigger it becomes.’
The huge tortoise had a bitter expression.
‘Is it my fault?’
‘I didn’t wish for this either!’
‘I am also suffering!’
‘With such a small area, it’s making me uncomfortable to even turn around. It’s torture to put a cloth on my head to clean up.’
‘Besides, this place is already so clean, why do I insist on cleaning it every day?’
‘Now, the owner doesn’t even order me to do it anymore.’
‘Why is it that the first thing that I do after waking up every day is to get a cloth and start cleaning up?’
‘What is the reason behind it?’
The huge tortoise suddenly was dumbfounded and started thinking hard about it.
“Why do I have a feeling that this tortoise is about to have depression?”
Chu He looked at the huge tortoise who was starting to daydream again. He felt that it should head out to relax once in a while!
Since the time it gained intelligence, the tortoise had been staying in the book depository and had never been to the outside world. It was just like an Atlantic canary being reared in a cage, which sooner or later would face some problems.
That was the tortoise who was going to keep him company and see who had the longest lifespan.
He would not allow it to die under any other circumstances.
Besides, its size was quite big currently and the most important thing was that it had yet to reach its limit.
Right now, he needed to consider where he should move this tortoise to.
It was obviously a big no on the inner grounds of the Xia clan!
With its huge body, even if it did not cause any trouble, it would surely get hunted by the foreign clan, which would be rather troublesome.
As for other clans, it would not be able to mix with them well as it was also a foreign clan.
As for the surroundings of the Xia clan, there was no such thing as a tortoise clan that he had heard of before.
“Wait a minute, tortoise!”
Chu He slapped his forehead.
Since the day the huge tortoise was taken care of by Chu He, it had left the water and even sunbathed for the entire day, making Chu He nearly forget that strictly, it originated from a marine clan.
‘This makes things easier.’
He would just look for a huge river, or a huge ocean and that would get things settled.
“Come, Lil Lu, I’ll bring you back home and have a look.”
Not caring if the tortoise agreed or not, Chu He immediately grabbed onto its neck that was thicker than a water bucket. He dragged it along and blinked out of the book depository. Then, they blasted to the sky.
It was a huge river that crossed the four commanderies of the Xia kingdom, and within the inner grounds of the Lin commandery, there was a river.
Chu He held the huge tortoise, and after spending a minute, he came to the borders of Blue Rover.
Then, he tapped on the huge tortoise’s head and said, “Lil Lu, this is your old home. For the next few years to come, you’ll be going back home and staying there. Enjoy playing around and relax your mind. Off you go.”
The huge tortoise was dumbfounded.
‘What is the meaning of this?’
‘What is going on?’
‘Why should I go down?’
He did not budge an inch. Its big eyes stared straight at Chu He and looked into his eyes.
Chu He could not tolerate its petty bitterness and kicked it into the river.
An awkward incident occurred!
It was as if the huge tortoise was afraid of the water, and was struggling in the water with all its might, just like a dry duck falling into the water. With its massive body size and the two big fleshy claws flapping like wings, it looked utterly ridiculous.
“You’re a tortoise—not a chicken! Why are you afraid of water? The huge river is your home! Stop struggling around. Relax, take a deep breath, and move all your claws together.”
Chu He stood by the shore and shouted to guide the huge tortoise to swim. In the meantime, he even made a gesture while teaching.
He had never taught other people to swim, let alone teaching a tortoise to swim.
He had no experience in it and could only teach according to his frog style that he used to swim with.
“Chi chi chi!”
The huge tortoise opened its mouth and kept letting out bubbles.
It really looked like an ordinary human that fell into the water.
Chu He looked at it till his eyelids were twitching.
‘Can this fella really survive in water?’
However, fortunately, a tortoise would still be a tortoise.
It was familiar with the water as it was an inborn sense.
After struggling for some time, the huge tortoise was able to move around in the water normally.
Its four claws exerted strength at the same time like a dog paddling.
Very soon, it was moving just like a tiny electronic motor.
Swoosh, and it had returned to the shore.
Then, its claw that was thicker than Chu He’s thigh, yanked into Chu He’s pants.
The tortoise that was thicker than a water bucket shook with all its might.
At that moment, it had come to an understanding—Chu He intended to ditch it outside.
“Don’t put on a pitiful look. I’m just letting you go out to relax, not ditching you! Just go in and wait. Wait till your body has become the largest size, and after you’ve broken through, and become smaller, come back to the book depository.”
“Don’t worry, I’ll always come and visit you! It’s just this much distance, I’ll just take this walk at the riverbank as an experience to get some fresh air!”
“Remember, when I didn’t come, you got to be a good boy and stay in the river and don’t simply come up the shore, and you’re not allowed to injure anyone!” Chu He said.
Currently, the huge tortoise had very high intelligence, at least the intelligence of an 11 to 12-year-old child. Hence, it could understand Chu He’s comments.
Finally, under Chu He’s pestering, it swam back into the water grudgingly.
“Chi chi chi!”
After its entire body was submerged in the water, its neck stuck out and turned around and called out to Chu He.
“Don’t worry, I’ll always come and visit you!”
Chu He said with a smile.
‘This brat even knows to remind me to keep to my words.’
