News of this battle was soon a hot topic between the Disciples in High Heaven Pavilion. There were even others seeking out those present at the scene to hear the details. If not for Su Mu’s status, then the news would have long since been spread to the ends of the earth. However since Su Mu was involved, the Disciples could only hide it inside their stomachs and discreetly talk about it.

In Yang Kai’s small hut, the situation had finally calmed down.

Looking at the sky, Yang Kai became depressed. Because Su Mu had come to cause trouble, he had lost precious time to practice the tempered body record. It was truly regrettable.

Taking out his spare pair of clothes, Yang Kai then went to the small pond beside his hut. Taking off his tattered clothes, he prepared to take a bath. These past few days he had been wondering the mountain and then he had fought the Flower Patterned Spider, these two things combined had really made him stank.

Stealthily, Xia Ning Chang tip toed to the side of the hut, for she wanted to learn the true cultivation level of this Fellow Brother. Yet, when she turned around the corner, all that met her eyes were a pair of white buttocks. Yang Kai had already become stark naked, not a stitch of clothing remained and he was in the position to dive into the water.

Xia Ning Chang’s small face immediately flushed a bright red. Although her cultivation was very high, she was still an innocent female. Not even mentioning buttocks, she hadn’t even seen a male’s thigh. How could she possibly endure this scene?

[This is too much!] Xia Ning Chang’s heart had begun to thump erratically and she quickly hid herself.

[Why… why must fate play me like this?] Tears streamed down that pitiful girl’s face after she realized that there was no time to uncover his secret. Stamping her foot, she disappeared in a flash.

[That stinking Disciple! Those entrance examinations conducted by the teachers were too lax. Disciples stripping stark naked in broad daylight is simply too shameless. Far too shameless!]

In the pond, Yang Kai was washing his body and inspecting it.

He had discovered that ever since he started to practice the Tempered Body Record, his muscles had become sturdier and more robust. Although he was still thin, he was thin in the right places.

Additionally, the wounds from yesterday’s battle with the Flower Patterned Spider had already become scars. Only the arm wound from the flower patterned spider’s leg had yet to fully heal and still transmitted some pain to him.

After all, it had penetrated through his arm, so it couldn’t possibly heal that quickly. But it wasn’t as severe as he had imagined, give it a few days and it should be completely healed.

Thinking over that life and death battle with the spider, caused Yang Kai to be excited. Not knowing why, the more dangerous the situation he was in, the more enthusiastic and excited he became. He unexpectedly had this type of character, was he unconsciously a masochist and after living a bit more than ten years, he had suddenly awakened his desires?

(Silavin: I suspected as much…)

 

When he thought of that, he promptly inhaled a large breath and submerged himself in the pond; only resurfacing after a while later.

Although there were many things for him to complete, Yang Kai still went to take a shower. After dressing himself, he began his sweeping.

After all, this was his assigned work in High Heaven Pavilion. And since he was assigned this job, he must complete it to the best of his ability.

While sweeping, Yang Kai clearly felt that the gazes from his Fellow Disciples were strange. They were full of doubt, for they were the ones who had witnessed his battle earlier in the morning. They didn’t understand how Yang Kai had been able to knock Zhou Hu out.

Yang Kai calmly and honestly continued with his work.

Completing his sweeping, Yang Kai returned to his wooden hut and opened his bag. From within, he took out the herbs he had collected, taking the Three Leaved Chaos Spirit Flower and the Dead Jedi Tree Grass out and placing the other extra herbs back into the bag.

These extra herbs were completely useless to Yang Kai, but he could at least sell them to the Contribution Hall for some contribution points.

Wrapping up the herbs, he left but quickly halted. Reconsidering, he went back and changed his clothes, wearing his tattered, blood-stained ones he also dirtied his face bit before leaving again.

In the Contribution Hall, Treasurer Meng was sitting behind the counter while holding a teapot, crossing his legs while sipping the tea he merrily hummed a tuned.

Suddenly a human figure could be seen at the hall entrance. Old man Meng spiritlessly lifted up his head to see, and just as he was about to scold that brat who dared to come here, his eyes widened. So early in the morning and someone dared to disturb his peace and quiet. Yet, when he saw Yang Kai battered and exhausted walking in. His tattered clothes which could no longer be considered clothes, his two legs were clearly seen, and so were his leg hairs.

(Erza: Yea, I’m confused as you are, leg hairs……O.o)

 

The two female Disciples at the entrance saw this and shrieked out in shock at this vagabond, quickly retreating.

(Silavin: Pretty sure those hairs were just something that spilled out.)

 

When one questioned Treasurer Meng’s self-control, they would realize that after he entered the mountain, and then descended into the seas, he would remain impassive. Even if there was a massacre that occurred in ten cities, would not be enough for him to bat an eye. Yet, at that very moment, he sprayed out his mouthful of tea.

“Little Yang Kai, what is with your appearance?” Old Man Meng nearly went into a frenzy, quickly standing up. Dumbstruck, he looked at Yang Kai.

Rushing to the counter, Yang Kai then inhaled a large gulp of air before replying: “I have returned!”

“Experienced many hardships right?” Treasurer Meng felt pity for Yang Kai. Just a few days ago when he had come to his place, he was still healthy, yet from a single trip to Black Wind Mountains, he had become like this. He was not like a human or even a ghost, this was too tragic.

“*En…*, I was in danger.” Nodding his head, Yang Kai didn’t waste any more words. Hurriedly he opened up his bag and pointed to the herbs inside: “But my harvest was not bad, Treasurer Meng, will the Contribution Hall accept these herbs?”

Looking at the herbs, Treasurer Meng’s eyebrows rose.

They were only ordinary grade lower level herbs and practically had no worth. These herbs were too plentiful in the Contribution hall, even if he accepted, there would be no place to put them.

Just as he was about to reject the herbs, Treasurer Meng saw the expectation in Yang Kai’s eyes and then looked again at his attire. Seeing this, his heart had softened: “Oh, we will accept. For every two herbs, I will give you one contribution point.”

“Okay, then please count them.” Without bargaining, Yang Kai pushed the bag forward.

Treasurer Meng went to count the number of herbs. There were thirty-two herbs, a total of sixteen contribution points. Immediately he went to record this into his account book.

“You were in Black Wind Mountains for an entire three days, yet you only found this much?” Treasurer Meng casually asked.

“Being able to obtain this is considered good.” Yang Kai said while carefully looking around.

“Keke, it’s not bad.” Treasurer Meng couldn’t bear to pour cold water on Yang Kai, after all, he knew of the difficulties he faced. Although this child’s natural aptitude was not good, he was willing to work hard. Nowadays, these type of hard working youngsters were a rare sight. It’s such a shame that his aptitude was so poor. It was the only fatal downside, for it destined him to have no major achievements.

As he was thinking about this, he saw how Yang Kai’s eyes were darting around and couldn’t help but asked curiously: “What are you looking at?”

Mysteriously, Yang Kai leaned forward and said in a low voice: “Treasurer Meng, in this trip to the mountain I seem to have found some incredible thing.”

Seeing Yang Kai’s cautiousness, Treasurer Meng also felt that this thing was something uncommon. He also became more serious and said in a low voice: “What thing?”

“I don’t know. I have brought it back to let you see it. You are experienced and knowledgeable, so you should definitely be able to recognize it.” As he said this, he went to touch his butt and took out another bag. Carefully he placed it on the counter.
