I’m alive guys! Got all caught up with CD. And then to my shock and horror I learned that it’s apparently almost over? Last volume or something? I could’ve waited one more month before reading and it might have been completely finished. Now I have to wait for it everyday…
Anyways, I’m more back now. Almost completely back.
After he had taken the map, Valencia had pulled out the map of the Heng Mountain Range that he was carrying. This map was drawn by the Imperial Crown Mercenary Group earlier. The level of detail on it was incredible, and it also had been drawn by an artist. The entire thing was very vivid.
(TN: Err, I’m not sure if it was a typo, but the author did not include a “Duan” character there. I swear I didn’t just a word.)
But there were dissimilarities.
After all, the Heng Mountain Range saw large battles in it every day. There were people fighting people, people fighting spirit beasts, and spirit beasts fighting spirit beasts. Thus, the damage done was extreme, but overall, the map was about 90% accurate regarding the geography.
“Captain, these two maps side by side, the spot on the map is that small cave in front of us.” That arrogant young man pointed at the cave.
Valencia nodded, “Everyone be careful. I remember this area had a variation spirit beast. It could spit out poisonous gas. Archers ready yourselves. You guys over there will go with me and help lure the spirit beast out and then kill it.”
Very quickly approximately a hundred people got into their positions.
Thirteen archers hid themselves outside the cave. Each one nocked their arrows, aiming at the cave entrance.
Valencia then took some of his more powerful men and carefully inched into the cave. They had also seen that there was a bend in the cave.
They walked around the bend.
Valencia put up a finger.
The people following him immediately sidled up to the cave wall. Valencia also placed his back against the wall, sneakily peeking inside, trying to see if the spirit beast was inside.
“Huh? The spirit beast isn’t here.” Valencia said in surprise.
The others with him immediately walked in, discovering that the place was a mess, but the air didn’t have the spirit beasts’ odor, and instead, had refreshing air.
“Everyone search together,” Valencia looked left and right, commanding the others to search.
The seven or eight people with him began to look.
Things were scattered everywhere.
But they didn’t find anything.
“Captain, the map shows that it’s here. Maybe the thing we’re looking for is inside the mountain or buried in the ground. Also, the predecessors before us liked to play with mechanisms. We need to search the entire place inch by inch and check everything at least.” The arrogant young man said.
Valencia said: “It looks this that’s the case. Go bring 60 more people in. Everyone will divide into a region. In that spot, they will dig for three feet and bring out what they find.”
“Yes.” The arrogant young man immediately headed out to gather people.
Instantly sixty people were in there, but the cave didn’t seem crowded. Valencia personally gave each person a region to start searching in.
Very quickly, these people were enthusiastically searching.
After about three or four minutes after, among the group of the first seven or eight people, someone held their stomach and exclaimed: “Ai yao, my stomach… Ah!” He hadn’t even finished speaking before he felt like he couldn’t hold it in and let it all out.
(TN: Think of ai yao as哎吆 as something similar to “Oh man”)
Following that were more continuous shouts.
Each cry was more jubilant than the next, clutching their stomachs and letting loose. Valencia had just frowned and was preparing to scold them when he felt his own stomach started making “gululu” sounds, and it wasn’t the sound for hunger.
His face’s color changed and ran out.
At that moment, Xie Ao Yu and Qin Yueyi were once again working together.
Except the two of them were both holding a few spirit beasts, and they were all the same type of spirit beast. In his left hand was five or six fire rabbits with long ears, in his right were five or six wind bird claws.
“It stinks.” Qin Yueyi wrinkled her cute nose.
“It’s already started.” Xie Ao Yu laughed, “We’ll act according to the plan.”
Qin Yue whispered: “Xiao Bai, come with me.”
Xiao Bai also let out a rare devilish human expression, but the expression just made it look even cuter. It trotted alongside Qin Yueyi and went over.
Xie Ao Yu and Qin Yueyi then went in opposite directions.
He came to a dense patch of grass, then tossed those fire rabbits onto the ground. The fire rabbits all lay paralyzed on the ground.
After a little while, Xiao Bai ran over.
At Qin Yueyi’s position, there was a flame that was fiercely burning, and there was also a large wind blowing, and that wind was aimed at the cave.
“Xiao Bai, let them breathe fire.” Xie Ao Yu said.
Xiao Bai began talking to the fire rabbits.
Those fire rabbits immediately became energetic, and each one immediately spat out a fireball. The fireballs created by the fire rabbits was very weak, but that wasn’t all there was to it. There was a lot of grass around and many of them were dried weeds.
A large fire suddenly began to fiercely burn.
Xie Ao Yu then threw out the wind birds. Under Xiao Bai’s beast talk commands, those wind birds began to let out a cry, beginning to cast a wind spell…Mad Wind Technique.
(TN: 狂风术 y’all know the drill.)
The direction was naturally also towards the cave.
Once the blaze had reached a certain degree, under the mad wind, it suddenly spread out everywhere, and the speed was incomparably fast. Xie Ao Yu then quietly left, meeting up with Qin Yueyi about two hundred meters away at a small mountain.
They hadn’t noticed Xiao Bai.
Once the two left, Xiao Bai let out its original appearance, opened its mouth and emitted a fireball.
The fireball it spat out was about as large as a millstone, it was like a fire-type spell. Even the gravel on the ground and the dirt all ignited.
Then it opened its mouth again and a large wind came out of its mouth.
The mad wind blew, the flames grew even larger, and the speed at which it spread was astonishing.
After that, it ran back to the others.
Returning to Xie Ao Yu’s side, it once again returned to its cute small beast appearance.
“Look quickly, they’ve discovered the large fire and are running away. Haha, they’re all running with their pants down.” Qin Yueyi pointed in the direction, excitedly shouting out.
Under the large fire, those people who were uncontrollably leaking didn’t have any method to use their qi to defend or run away, and could only waddle with their two legs.
At this time, Qin Yueyi’s Unstoppable Diarrhea began to show the extent of its evilness.
There was no way to hold it back. It entirely displayed its unstoppable abilities as the diarrhea flowed out uncontrollably. If a person squatted, they could forget about getting back up. But one could imagine, against the large fire and trying to escape for their lives, it was quite a sight.
Xie Ao Yu smiled evilly: “This time the Imperial Crown Mercenary group will really be known across the continent.”
“Big devil.” Qin Yueyi smiled so much her eyes were squinted, her two small fangs showing, an unspeakable cuteness, “I’ve finally found a friend!”
Looking at Qin Yueyi, inside Xie Ao Yu’s head, a phrase came to mind unbidden… partners in crime.
He shook his head, tossing away the idea, but Xie Ao Yu discovered, this phrase was firmly engraved in his mind. He couldn’t help but bitterly laugh, “Let’s go and find the Amethyst Spirit Water. This time there shouldn’t be anyone trying to bother us.”
Qin Yueyi picked up Xiao Bai, excitedly saying: “Let’s move out!”
(TN: Autobots rolling out. Although in this case it’s more like Decepticons.)
The youthful boy and girl went past the mountains and past two rivers before they arrived at the place that Qin Yueyi said the Amethysts Spirit Water was located. It was a small pool.
