Chapter 40 Target, Black Clouds Town
“It’s up to you.” Quan Guang handed two books to Liu Jiang and noted down 30 merit points.
After taking the booklet, Liu Jiang asked, “Are there any earth-level spells or martial techniques?”
Quan Guang shook his head and said, “Earth-level spells are too rare. Our Inspection Bureau doesn’t have them, but there’s a very powerful Earth-level spell in the Eastern Mountain Inspectorate called the Earth Escape Technique. After entering the sect, one can easily escape through the ground. It’s very powerful, but it’s very expensive. It costs 800 merit points.”
Earth Escape Technique.
Liu Jiang’s eyes lit up.
With the Earth Escape Technique, his life-saving ability would be greatly improved.
This world was too dangerous. Demons were wreaking havoc and running rampant. Even if he stayed at home, he might be captured and eaten by demons one day.
Moreover, the Ten Thousand Demon Kingdom was eyeing them covetously. Perhaps they would send an army one day and destroy the kingdom.
He did not feel safe. Only by becoming stronger and learning powerful life-saving techniques would he feel at ease.
He had to obtain the Earth Escape Technique as soon as possible.
However, 800 merit points was not cheap at all.
He caught two spies from the Ten Thousand Demon Kingdom and was rewarded with 200 merit points.
Capturing ordinary demons gave very little merit points.
A one or two-star Bronze demon only gave him one merit point.
Previously, Zhao Laoxiu had casually given him an Earth-level technique book. He had thought that it was cheap.
He did not expect it to be so expensive.
Zhao Laoxiu was really generous.
Then let’s raise my cultivation level first.
Liu Jiang thought to himself.
After returning to the captain’s office, Liu Jiang began to refine the fruits. First, he refined four meridian opening fruits.
Then he refined 11 energy fruits and raised his cultivation to the peak of three-star bronze. He was just 12 energy fruits away from advancing to four-star bronze.
He used another 16 epiphany fruits to comprehend the Lightning Inducing Technique.
The Lightning Inducing Technique still required 5 epiphany fruits.
On the Treasure Tree, there were 47 madness fruits, 45 intelligence subduing fruits, and 9 dreamscape fruits.
The spirit controlling fruit from fear needed more than 6.83 million points to mature.
Today, I actually gathered more than 700,000 points of fear. At this rate, the spirit controlling fruit will be completely ripe in about 10 days.
Liu Jiang was looking forward to it.
When the spirit controlling fruits ripened, he would start capturing spiritual beasts.
He wondered what kind of spiritual beast his first one would be.
Liu Jiang looked at the time and realized that it was already noon.
As soon as he walked out of the Bureau, Yang Yue, who was standing at the door, jogged over.
She said crisply, “Jiang Jiang, what do you want to eat for lunch? I’ll treat you.”
“I’m not hungry…” Liu Jiang refused decisively.
Resentment from Yang Yue, +1210, +…
Yang Yue felt extremely aggrieved, but she still forced a smile and said, “Then let’s have dinner together tonight.”
“I’m not hungry at night.”
Resentment from Yang Yue, +1410, +…
“What about tomorrow?”
“I’m not hungry tomorrow!”
Resentment from Yang Yue, +1520, +…
Yang Yue’s expression was very ugly. She did not expect Liu Jiang to reject her so bluntly. In the past, Liu Jiang had always listened to her.
She wanted to say something else, but she realized that Liu Jiang had already walked away.
She spewed resentment at Liu Jiang again.
An epiphany fruit quietly ripened.
Liu Jiang: “…”
Suddenly, Tian Li stopped Liu Jiang and strode out of the door.
“What’s the matter, Fairy Sister?” Liu Jiang looked at Tian Li’s threatening manner and said happily.
Joy from Tian Li, +1420, +…
“You’re so glib-tongued,” Tian Li scolded jokingly. Then she said seriously, “Liu Jiang, let’s have lunch together.”
With that, she pursed her lips slightly, feeling a little nervous.
“Alright, I just want to eat.” Liu Jiang chuckled.
Joy from Tian Li +1630, +…
Yang Yue, who was not far away, exploded in anger when she heard Liu Jiang’s words.
He had just said that he was not hungry, but now he was going to eat with Tian Li.
She felt even more regretful. It was all her fault for pushing Liu Jiang away when he treated her so well in the past.
She was filled with regret.
Resentment from Yang Yue, +1520, +…, regret, +1650, +…
Come and read on our website wuxia worldsite. Thanks
A dreamscape fruit quietly ripened.
There were 10 dreamscape fruits.
“The fish at Immortal Guest House is quite delicious. Let’s go eat fish. How about that?” Tian Li asked Liu Jiang.
“Sure,” Liu Jiang said happily.
Joy from Tian Li, +999, +…
An energy fruit ripened.
Resentment from Yang Yue, +1420, +… regret, +1520, +…
Liu Jiang and Tian Li chatted and laughed as they walked to the Immortal Guest House.
On the way, Liu Jiang continued to distribute money and gathered a lot of joy.
Along the way, he spent eight taels of silver.
Tian Li looked sideways. She did not expect Liu Jiang to be such a prodigal.
Along the way.
Liu Jiang bought whatever he saw. He even gave big tips.
He gave 10 copper coins for something that cost a bronze coin.
He had no need for it. He just bought it and gave it to someone else.
Sometimes, he was quite loving. For example, he bought all the candied fruits and gave them to a group of children.
However, no matter how rich his family was, he could not afford to squander like that.
In just a short while, he had spent eight taels of silver.
Her monthly salary was only five taels.
Her monthly salary for almost two months was gone just like that.
Tian Li’s heart ached.
However, Liu Jiang did not mind at all.
Instead, he was very happy.
He collected another six energy fruits-a total of seven now.
He only needed five more energy fruits to reach four-star bronze.
If one’s cultivation level was high, one could catch any demon and obtain a huge reward.
Therefore, to him, strength was the most important thing
When they arrived at the Immortal Guest House, Liu Jiang saw the customers inside.
Recalling a small scene from a movie in his previous life, he said loudly, “Everyone, have a good meal today. It’s my treat today.”
“They’re from the Inspection Bureau…”
“Thank you, thank you…”
There was an uproar. Everyone was quite happy.
Liu Jiang looked at the joy that instantly exceeded 80,000 yuan and sighed inwardly.
Indeed, one had to be rich.
With money, he could gain emotional power faster.
“Liu Jiang, are you like this every day?” Tian Li could not help but ask curiously.
“No, I just made a contribution recently and got a reward. My hands are itching with money,” Liu Jiang said happily.
Tian Li’s face darkened.
She had thought that Liu Jiang’s family was rich. If he had too much money, he would not be able to spend it all.
He had been rewarded recently.
What a prodigal.
The rewards would be gone in no time.
“It’s not good for you to spend money like this. You might as well buy cultivation resources. At least buy a spiritual weapon,” Tian Li advised.
“I like to see others happy,” Liu Jiang said happily.
However, when Tian Li heard Liu Jiang’s words, she was stunned.
Her heartstrings seemed to be tugged gently.
What a good person.
Admiration from Tian Li, +1,400, +…
A merchant caravan was driving with a carriage along the main road.
There were 11 of them in the group.
“Sir, we should choose that town,” a man who looked like a waiter said softly.
Simpleton Pig, who had transformed into a shopkeeper, looked at the map in his hand and pointed at Black Clouds Town, which was not far from Eastern Mountain County.
The waiter asked curiously, “Sir, there are many people in Black Clouds Town. It’s only 100 miles away from the Eastern Mountain Inspectorate. The experts of the Eastern Mountain Inspectorate can arrive in less than 10 minutes. Although there are no experts in Black Clouds Town, it’s not the best choice. Should we choose a new target?”
Simpleton Pig said calmly, “Only by destroying all the humans in a town under the nose of the Eastern Mountain Inspectorate will it have the effect of making them fly into a rage out of humiliation. Only then can we vent our anger for our companions who were captured.”
Simpleton Pig paused for a moment before continuing, “Moreover, the 11 of us Bronze-level experts will be able to kill everyone in a few minutes and leave calmly.”
“You’re wise, Sir,” the waiter flattered.
“Let’s hurry. When we reach the town, we still have to investigate and ensure that there are no Silver-level experts.”
