This time, out of the goodness in his heart, Treasurer Meng gave Yang Kai a few extra clippings of the herbs, but he still refused to let go of the matters pertaining to his cultivation. He constantly asked Yang Kai, how the boy had managed to improve his strength so quickly.
It looked like the news of Yang Kai beating Su Mu’s underlings had even reached Treasurer Meng’s ears.
Towards Treasurer Meng, Yang Kai still had a reasonably good impression. Although the old man was a bit crazy and thick skinned, he was very likable when measured by Yang Kai’s standards.
(Silavin: Fucking 180 when compared to the time he was looking at this Old Man as a pervert! Maybe Yang Kai does like to get close to people that hurt him : / – in this case his pockets.)
This situation wasn’t easily explained, so Yang Kai could only say that when he was in Black Wind Mountains, he ate a special fruit which allowed him to gain enlightenment on how to cultivate.
After contemplating for a while, Treasurer Meng thought back to the time period when Yang Kai entered the mountains and his current behavior. This explanation was the most reasonable and believable explanation, so Treasurer had no choice but to accept it.
Exiting the Contribution Hall, Yang Kai was deeply worried.
All of his contribution points had been used to purchase these herbs and by his estimation, they would only last him three to four days. Afterwards, what would he use to get these herbs?
Even though he was able to earn two contribution points from his daily challenges, these points could only be accessed on the eighth day of every month. With his calculations, he would need to wait twenty days. How could he possibly wait until then?
Without being able to think of a solution, Yang Kai became depressed and could only continue training.
A few days passed by in a blur, and Yang Kai’s Tempered Body Sixth Stage cultivation began to stabilize and he marched towards the Seventh Stage.
In comparison to Yang Kai’s good mood, Su Mu’s followers felt like they were thrown into a flaming abyss. These past few days, Yang Kai would come to find them and cause trouble, causing them to feel vexed beyond compare. They couldn’t contend against him in strength and couldn’t hide from him, it was stifling beyond compare.
While Su Mu personally held some confidence at his chance of victory should he fight Yang Kai, unfortunately for the others the gap between them and Yang Kai was too large. They couldn’t challenge him — Su Mu still thought that Yang Kai was at the Tempered Body Fourth or Fifth stage.
Su Mu knew that this could continue no longer. If it continued any longer, then all his underlings would leave.
Thinking for a while, Su Mu prepared to do something heartless and called-up all the High Heaven Pavilion Disciples who had been beaten by Yang Kai. Speaking with a frown on his face, he said, “Tonight, we shall raid Yang Kai’s hut and wipe away all shame you have suffered!”
Since they couldn’t win by following the rules, they won’t follow them at all!
Everyone jumped up, startled. “A raid?”
*En* Su Mu nodded his head.
“This isn’t good.” Li Yun Tian was hesitant: “Although that guy Yang Kai is a bit dishonest, he at least openly challenged and defeated us all. If the news of us mounting a sneak attack got out, we would be unable to escape punishment.”
Li Yun Tian’s statements got the agreement of all the people present.
Su Mu indignantly replied. “But he is simply too much! He has completely disregarded us Fellow Disciples and comes at us every day. If we don’t give him a proper lesson, who knows how long this ferocious act will continue. Regardless, tonight I will definitely go cause some trouble for him. All those willing to do so, follow me, as for those who are unwilling I won’t force you. If anything were to happen, I swear that I, Su Mu will bear all consequences and won’t involve you.”
Su Mu’s words were sincere, and even if they still felt that it wasn’t honorable, they couldn’t refute his position. After all, Su Mu had promised to carry all the consequences on his shoulders, showing the utmost benevolence.
Thinking for a bit, Li Yun Tian spoke, “This is also good. If this succeeds, then we will be able to teach that bastard that we aren’t so easily provoked. Young master Su, this time; this Disciple will put his life on the line and join you!”
“We’ll go.” The remaining people chorused.
Nodding and smiling, Su Mu cried out. “That’s right!”
That night, with everybody’s spirit trembling in excitement they gathered in Su Mu’s room waiting until sunset.
“Is everybody ready?” Su Mu inquired.
They nodded their heads.
“Good. This time we must make this moment unforgettable for that bastard!” Su Mu shouted while putting a black cloth over his face, leaving only a slim gap from which his evil gaze leaked out. Their emotions roused, the others followed suit.
“Set off!” Calling for action, Su Mu issued the move out order.
Ten or so shadows flashed out of his room, quickly merging into the night’s darkness.
During the night, High Heaven Pavilion had Disciples posted about patrolling the premises. Unfortunately, Su Mu and his group were High Heaven Pavilion Disciples too and were all too familiar with the patrol routes, allowing them to easily avoid these patrols.
Otherwise, why would a family thief be hard to ward against? Su Mu’s current actions were a model example of this saying.
Shortly, Su Mu’s group gathered in front of Yang Kai’s small wooden hut. Standing about ten to twenty feet away, they suppressed the sounds of their breathing, their indignation flared at the memory of the injustice they had suffered.
“There are no lights inside the hut; Yang Kai must be asleep already.” Calming his heart, Su Mu turned his head to face Li Yun Tian at his side: “Yang Kai’s strength isn’t weak. So later you and I will hold him down, while everyone else beats him, remember to use all your strength.”
“Okay.” Li Yun Tian nodded his head.
“As long as it’s not life threatening, you can hit however you want.” Su Mu reminded, and they all promised.
“Go!” Waving his hand, Su Mu shot towards the wooden hut. Ten shadows flickered against the night, rushing onwards. Those who cultivated could run without making the slightest noise, they just needed to suppress the noise of their breathing to hide their presence. With their imaginations running wild, all their spirits rose as they thought about how Yang Kai would look injured and bloody.
These past few days, they were tormented miserably by Yang Kai.
Even though they were still around ten feet away, the cold gleam in Su Mu’s eyes became more intense and his lips couldn’t help but curve upwards.
As the distance shrunk, the wooden hut’s wooden door could be seen, in the blink of an eye, Su Mu had already started to reach out to push open the door.
Suddenly, a sweet fragrance entered his nose. Smelling this fragrance, Su Mu felt that this fragrance was very strange. It didn’t smell very nice, nor did it smell very bad, it truly was a fragrance that he had never smelt before.
Although he was a bit suspicious, Su Mu didn’t give it any more thought and continued to charge forwards.
Stepping forward, Su Mu’s body became soft, he narrowly avoided falling. Breaking out in cold sweat, Su Mu recalled just moments ago it felt like all his strength had been sucked out from him. His brain buzzing he became mind became muddled, tiredly he steadied himself.
Taking another step caused Su Mu to directly fall to the ground, nose first. Then two warm streams flowed down from his nose filling his mouth with the metallic taste of blood.
*Pa, pa, pa……..* A series of sounds were converged towards the wooden hut originating from the High Heaven Pavilion Disciples that had followed Su Mu. One by one, each of them, like Su Mu, fell to the ground. Each of them felt weak and powerless, all had bloody noses and battered looks. Their anguished wailing resounded out in the quiet night, making it all the livelier.
“What’s the matter?” Struggling greatly, Su Mu turned his head towards Li Yun Tian and asked.
Li Yun Tian struggled to drag himself back upright, but he was powerless and could only lay on the ground gasping for breath. This expression was horrendously ugly, hesitatingly he spoke. “Young master Su, I’m afraid that we have been poisoned.”
“Poisoned?” Su Mu turned pale in fright.
“In addition, it’s a very powerful poison…..” Trembling, Li Yun Tian reached out with his hand: “Young……master Su, I’m afraid that I can’t hold on any longer. You…..you must get revenge for me!”
After he finished passing on his last will and testament, Li Yun Tian’s head fell and he ceased all movement.
Overwhelmed by shock, Su Mu desperately and repeatedly called out his name. But no matter how many times he called out, he couldn’t wake him. When he turned his head around again, he saw that of the Brothers that he had brought with him, none had escaped. All without exception were lying still, making no sound.
(Erza: You would think that Yang Kai would have sensed or at least heard all this noise by now. Wot?ლ(ಠ_ಠლ) ED: Honey badger don’t give a f***.)
An indescribable sense of panic and mourning filled his heart, unexpectedly, Su Mu’s was able to calm his mind in this situation.
This was the territory of High Heaven Pavilion, how could they be poisoned? And this poison’s effect was this potent, not even three breaths had passed before their lives were taken, one by one.
(Erza: WOOAAHHH! This is fresh, first time MC’s op training killed others. Looking forward to future story arcs now! Aren’t you? ^^)
