Qin Tian’s sudden rose in fame had caused many to be either shocked or frustrated.
At night, a candle flickered in one of Qin Clan’s courtyard.
“This Dan is known as the Burning Sun Dan, consuming it will allow you to double your strength for a period of time. You must always bring it along.”
“Father, don’t worry. I will definitely make sure Qin Tian will never come out the Autumn Hunting Event alive!”
“Kun’er, you can only take this Dan as your last resort.”
“This child understands.”
Qin Xiangtian eye twitched. He wasn’t sure whether giving Qin Kun the Burning Sun Dan was the correct choice. Although the Burning Sun Dan is able to double the user’s strength, it also comes with side effects. It shortens the user’s lifespan. Also once the strength enhancing effect dissipated, the user will be weakened to the point of nearly collapsing. Therefore the opponent must die or the user will not be able to bear the consequences.
Against Qin Tian, he had his reasons to kill.
However, Qin Tian had now became Qin Clan’s focus of protection. It would be impossible for him to kill Qin Tian other than during the Autumn Hunting Event.
Qin Tian’s current cultivation is at the Sixth Rank Warrior. Qin Kun, who is at the Seventh Rank Warrior, under the Burning Sun Dan’s effect shouldn’t find it difficult when killing Qin Tian.
Three days later, in the Qin Clan’s secret Martial Arts Field.
This field is usually reserved for the Qin Clan’s elites to train, no ordinary people are qualified to enter.
Currently, Qin Zhantian was standing on the stage and was looking at all the younger generations who were at least a Fifth Ranked Warrior. His heart lamented. All these youngsters are carrying Qin Clan’s blood. In the future, they would either become Qin Clan’s cornerstone or bring Qin Clan great achievements.
“How many will be able to come out alive?” Qin Zhantian asks himself.
Qin Tian was quietly standing at one corner. He was worried that he would succumb to his bloodlust and lose control of himself to fight the BOSS, Qin Xiangtian. For three whole days, Qin Tian had always been thinking on how to kill Qin Xiangtian.
Though it seemed similar to playing games, he was actually facing a real person who also, like him, has IQ. Against this type of BOSS, Qin Tian didn’t dare to be reckless. He had to plan and make preparations, one step at a time.
Qin Zhantian excitedly spoke a few sentences to express his enthusiasm before announcing the first prize of the Autumn Hunting Event.
Everyone was full of fighting spirit, just like after injecting chicken blood.
(TL: injecting chicken blood (打了鸡血): feeling high with excitement)
On the surface, the Autumn Hunting Event is like a game, but in actual fact it is an event for massacre as it does not have any rules.
Endless killing for three whole days.
This is a test for the younger generations to baptise their spirit. If anyone is lucky enough to survive the ordeal, that person will become a worthy candidate to be nurtured and cultivated into someone who may qualifies to be the Clan’s Patriarch.
To survive, one must be cruel.
This is the only law to survival.
The hunting ground is located at the mountain range near the border of Kunlun Mountain. In the mountain range, thick miasma spreads out among the forest and cries of monsters can be heard from time to time, warning intruders of danger and to have them stir clear from there.
After entering the hunting ground, fifty-seven Qin Clan members dispersed to go their separate ways. Many go alone, while the rest in groups.
Looking at the dark forest from the entrance, Qin Tian laughed coldly,” The hunting has begun……”
“Hey, let’s go together, I’m…I’m…I’m a little scared……”
A weak voice called out.
Qin Tian was shocked when he saw a shivering girl some distance away from him. When he was about to reject, the system sounded in his mind. ‘Accept Yun Man’s party invite. Quest reward is 100 experience, 50 Qigong, 20 survival.’
“I say, what’s wrong with the system. When did it starts giving out party invites? She isn’t even a player!”
Qin Tian could not understand. That girl would be a burden if he brought her along as she would not only affect his killing speed, there’s danger of his secret cultivation method being exposed.
However, he would be punished if he did not accept it. Without a choice, his mind answered the system, ‘Accept’, while he lightly replied to Yun Man, “Alright”.
Yun Man happily jumped up and naively asked,” Really? Great! Hee hee……”
Qin Tian shook his head and sighed.
Looking at Yun Man’s delicate egg face and slender legs, Qin Tian is pleasantly relieved that during his killing journey he is accompanied by a beauty.
Along the way, the two would occasionally hear sounds of strange insects. This greatly alarmed Yun Man. In fright, she would hide behind Qin Tian. Only after recovering would she shows her violent side. She would stomp those insects to death, leaving none alive. Nobody knows whether she is afraid or hate those insects.
As the two were currently at the border of Kunlun Mountain, this area is not heavily infested with monsters so the journey was very smooth. However Yun Man’s sporadic outburst of energy was giving Qin Tian a huge headache.
Yun Man’s every actions were very childlike, but cute.
If this was the previous world, Qin Tian might bring her to a scenery place to nurture her feelings for him. They could chitchat about their own life and dream. However, their current situation is different. Who knows what will happen in the next second.
As the two gradually proceeded deeper, the trees became more and more dense and gloomy.
“Hey, can’t we go a little slower? I’m scared.” Yun Man softly asks.
Qin Tian’s clear-cut answer with no hint of pity cause Yun Man to feel wronged. She pout her little mouth and stares fiercely at Qin Tian.
A rough wheeze was heard before it was followed by several screams.
Qin Tian’s expression changed. He halted and listened for a moment and said to Yun Man,” Stay close to me, don’t go missing.”
“Hey, what are you doing?”
Before Yun Man could finish, Qin Tian had already sprung forward like a cheetah and was maneuvering with ease.
Yun Man was dumbfounded. Her two big eyes became watery and she begun to angrily stomp on the ground. Only after noticing the surrounding was shrouded in darkness was she frightened. She immediately chased after Qin Tian.
Qin Tian did not increase his speed by a lot. For those who were able to join in the Autumn Hunting Event, they were of at least Fifth Ranked Warriors. He believed Yun Man would be able to catch up to him easily.
It’s easy but it still requires time.
However in a few breathes, Yun Man had unexpectedly caught up to Qin Tian. Her steps were very graceful which seemed to be floating, just like a fairy stepping on clouds.
“Heng, what are you looking at……”
Qin Tian was slightly startled and he secretly thought, “This lass’s strength isn’t that simple ah.”
Ferocious Tiger King, Rank 2, is 10 feet long and its whole body is full of fiery red stripes. It is extremely powerful and its body is harder than steel. The only way to kill it is to aim for its head, but its terrifying speed makes aiming difficult.
Qin Shan, Qin Niu and Qin Hu formed a ‘品’ word and surrounded it. One of the Ferocious Tiger King’s eye was already blinded, thus it had already reached its dead end.
The three people’s faces were filled with joy.Qin Niu giggled, “So much for a Rank 2 monster!”
“Haha, that is so……”
“Shan bro, a Rank 2 monster is 5 points, how are we supposed to split it?”
“Split what? Let’s kill it first before deciding.”
The three attacked together but the power backing the attacks weren’t as powerful as before. Qin Tian, who was hiding, was able to understand the situation. The three were conserving their strength as they were not trust each other.
It was a matter of time before they starts to kill each other.
“Da Niu, why aren’t you using more strength? You’re only using the third layer of your Reckless Bull Vigor, what are you doing ah……”
“Your Mother ah, stop talking about me. Da Shan is also doing the same.”
At that moment the Ferocious Tiger King gave a roar while fiercely scratching the ground before pouncing at Qin Hu. On seeing the approaching Ferocious Tiger King, colours drained from Qin Hu’s face and he immediately shouted, “Save me……”
However both Qin Shan and Qin Hu just let out a cold sneer. Save you? Dream on!
With a bite, Qin Hu’s neck was broken by the Ferocious Tiger King. Blood splattered in all directions.
“Da Niu, I’ll take two points and you’ll take three. You kill it!”
Qin Niu gathered his Qigong and the tenth layer of the Reckless Bull Vigor burst out. Both fist that seem like they were able to split open the mountain were heavily slammed on the head of the Ferocious Tiger King. The Ferocious Tiger King was knocked over and collapsed on the ground. It was at death’s door.
“Haha, Da Niu, the tenth layer of the Reckless Bull Vigor is indeed powerful.” Qin Shan put both hands behind his back, and slowly walked towards Qin Niu.
In the darkness, Qin Tian laughed coldly and thought, “So greedy.”
When Qin Shan was close, both of his hands suddenly moved and an overbearing Qigong was shot out. Qin Niu on the other hand just coldly laughed and said, “You are still far from my level.”
When Qin Shan was approaching, Qin Niu had already readied his Qigong and was preparing for the kill.
Both palms met but the force blew them back and the recoil caused them to vomit blood.
