The Immortal's Poison - chapter-145
There were no booths on the second floor. There were no karaoke boxes or
bar counters either. There were only maze-like walls of different lengths
arranged in no particular order. On every wall, there was a painting
drawn with thick ink and heavy colors which Wen Leyang could not
decipher. It was as if there was a splash of ink which was simply spread
out using a brush into a graffiti. Every wall was filled with the intense
and full emotions, pure emotion, nothing else.
There were quite a number of people on the second floor as well. However,
unlike the surging wildness downstairs, the men and women here were
talking in hushed tones under the influence of alcohol. Occasionally,
they would laugh in a low voice, unrevealingly invoking a flirt in the
Wen Leyang was not afraid of a crowd, he was afraid if there was nobody
there. He did not know how to conceal his own breath like a true
cultivator’s skill, hence he could not evade a cultivator’s
telegnosis ability. However, he would appear as a normal person to a
cultivator. The more people there are, the easier he could get away.
Ji Fei and Shui Jing’s telegnosis abilities were not as sharp as the
little supreme leader Liu Zheng. The most they could tell was that
someone was approaching. They could not detect that the person
approaching them was their mentor. Wen Leyang put on his mask, it could
at least help him when he comes face to face with Ji Fei. He slowly
followed the wall and finally came to a stop in front of the only door.
Old monk Ji Fei’s loud cloud-reaching heroic laugh could be heard from
the inside, “I didn’t think that this is truly Painting Ton’s
establishment. Pray tell, how should I address you, sir and Lord Leyang
The inerasable flippant and superiority of Beijing dialect was in stark
contrast with Leyang Tian’s body shape, “Leyang Wen? That is my
brother, my name is Leyang Tian. You can call me Tangtang, don’t
‘sir’ me, it’s quite uncomfortable.”
The monk coughed, sickened by Tangtang.
Old monk Ji Fei’s voice was solemn and deep, “Tang… Brother Leyang, I
think you know what kind of place Painting Town is right?” The old monk
could not find in himself to call this black gorilla Tangtang.
Leyang Tian replied with a hint of displeasure, “What are you saying? How
can I not know about our house? We, Painting Town have been rogue
cultivators for many generations. Although we are not extremely famous,
we have been around for thousands of years.”
The monk Shui Jing asked in a low, muffled voice, “Then how come you’re
Leyang Tian’s sounded slightly depressed, “I have been weak since I was
little, I could not train in the Heaven’s cultivation. I wasn’t much
use in the family. I simply asked some money from my big brother and did
some business in Shanghai, just for fun.”

Leyang was silently amused. It was his first time hearing a sturdy person
saying that his body was weak.
The old monk Ji Fei hummed and opened his mouth again after some time,
“Are there any Leyang family elites that cultivate in the Heaven’s
Leyang Tian’s voice had some baffled flavor in it, “Of course not. This
is only a commercial business, it has nothing to do with the Heaven’s
cultivation. What do you mean by that?”
The old monk made loud clicking sounds, giving Wen Leyang goosebumps at
the door, “I see… Then this complicates things. I’m afraid this
Leyang Tian’s tone was the same as his big brother Leyang Wen, friendly
and seasoned, “You two are friends of my brother, then you’re
Tangtang’s friends as well, which makes you friends of Painting Town.
Tangtang is not a disciple in the cultivation world but I cannot sit idly
by if anything were to happen back home. Please don’t keep me out of
the loop! If there’s any real danger, Tangtang reckons that he can
handle it.” As he was saying this, a slamming sound came from inside the
room. Leyang Tian had placed something on the table.
The monk exclaimed in surprise, “This thing looks very odd.”
The old monk Ji Fei exhaled in a weathered fashion, “Child, this cannot
do!” The short-statured Leyang Wen was not around, the old monk had
raised his own seniority.
Leyang Tian laughed, “Master monk, if this will not do, what will?”
The slurping of tea was heard. It was unclear whether it was the fat monk
or the old monk.
After a while, the old monk’s voice could be heard again, saying
earnestly, “Firstly, you can’t face a true elite cultivator with a
handgun. Secondly, no cultivator would ever use a gun. If you fire this,
the face of the whole Painting Town would be thrown down the drain!”
Visit lightnovel_world_.com for a better experience Wen Leyang understood
at this point, that Leyang Tian had placed a gun on the table. Then he
thought about the old monk’s words. It seems that Xiaoyi was already
infamous in the cultivation world.
Leyang Tian’s tone lost its original flippancy, “I beg that the two of
you be more straightforward. What happened to Painting Town?”
The old monk was still beating around the bush, unwilling to get to the
point, “Then I’ll ask you again. Regarding your family, how much do you
Leyang Tian seemed to get slightly impatient, “There are only my brother
and I in the current Painting Town’s generation! Although Tangtang does
not even have an ounce of true cultivation skill, you don’t have to
keep my family’s matters from me…”
The monk Shui Jing suddenly opened his mouth to interrupt Leyang Tian’s
words, “Then how about the matters regarding your family and the World
Sect?” His voice was cold and stern.
Leyang Tian’s voice also deepened abruptly, “What you two immortals
mean to say is what ties do we, Painting Town, have with the World Sect?”
As he was saying this, Leyang Tian sneered, “You two had better be nice
with your mouths. If these rumors were to reach outside ears, Painting
Town would become the shooting target of all.”
There were three factions of true cultivators under the heavens. The
first one is the right cultivation path headed by the Five Blessings.
Their power was the greatest. They were highly skilled and had a great
number of disciples. They were the ultimate leaders of the cultivation
world. The second is the wicked faction. They had been greatly weakened
by the right cultivation paths thousands of years ago. They are now lying
low in the world. However, they had been stirring starting a few years
ago. Not long ago, when One Word Palace’s Third Elder Wei died on Mount
Emei, the conflict between the right and the wicked became more intense.
However, no particularly outstanding elite had shown their face from
among the World Sect. The third faction was the rogue cultivators.
Although they were great in numbers, they were a motley crowd. A few
outstanding ones like Red Grandaunt, Giant Bull and others were a far cry
from the proper elites of the Five Blessings. Painting Town had silently
become the leader of the rogue cultivators, but they had a hard time on
Mount Emei, greatly decreasing their popularity.
In the battle between the right and the wicked, the rogue cultivators had
been strictly neutral on the surface. Of course, with their abilities,
meddling in the battle between the right and the wicked was like a rabbit
wanting to join in the war between two brown bears.
Even if Painting Town was the first among rogue cultivators, if they had
ties with the World Sect, they were bound to be attacked mercilessly by
One Word Palace, Eyang Sect and other hardliners.
But Painting Town’s actions in the Gold-Consuming Lair and City God
Temple of Shanghai had left Wen Leyang uncertain. Moreover, just a few
moments earlier, a hundred cultivators were mercilessly exterminated by
witchcraft. One could even guess by using the buttons on one’s clothes,
that Painting Town was no mere rogue cultivator family as seen on the

snorted, “Right cultivation path or wicked path, these have nothing to do
with us rogue cultivators. If Painting Town had any ties with the wicked
path, us brothers would turn a blind eye. However, this time, we came
here because of the past relationship between us brothers and Leyang Wen.
There’s something that we must tell you.” As he was saying this, there
was a ruffling sound. The monk seemed to take something out before
saying, “This is for you!”
The room fell silent instantly.
The Poison of Life and Death inside Wen Leyang’s body flowed quickly.
Ji Fei and Shui Jing seemed to know the ties that Painting Town had with
the World Sect and made this visit on purpose. Wen Leyang was worried
that the black gorilla Leyang Tian would launch an attack. A person, who
could kill a hundred cultivators without making a sound, could easily
pinch Ji Fei Shui Jing to death. It would be as easy as raising an arm.
After a while, Leyang Tian suddenly opened his mouth, “May the two
immortals show mercy! Please tell me the cause and consequences of the
The old monk grunted and ordered the monk, “Junior, you say it.”
The fat monk was quite aware and he spoke right after he replied, “Ten
days ago, when us brothers were in Jiaxing City, we had inadvertently
noticed a few adversaries, the ox noses of Eyang Sect!”
The old monk Ji Fei had been with the fat monk for many years now, but he
had not gotten used to him calling other Taoist priests as ox noses. He
managed a cold grunt from his throat.
Leyang Tian’s voice was slightly hesitant, “Eyang Sect is one of the
Five Blessings right? Had those priests bore a grudge against you two
immortals?” Listening to his tone, he seemed to not understand the
current cultivation world at all. He even needed confirmation on the
famous Eyang Sect.
The old monk Ji Fei continued the conversation, “It’s not that they
bore a grudge against us, but they did not treat our close kin rightly.
At that time, a few shady Eyang Sect priests were spotted by us brothers,
and we followed them…”
Leyang Tian suddenly interrupted the old monk’s speech, “Do you two
know this person?”

Old monk Ji Fei exclaimed with surprise and smiled without warning, “Of
course, it’s Andy Lau!”
He squinted his eyes and muttered, “This frame looks familiar.”
Wen Leyang was astonished then he was shocked. He had hoped to be lucky
in his heart. Maybe they were looking at Liu Zheng… Then he lifted his
head and saw a camera, pointing at him dead-on.
Leyang Tian laughed loudly, “Cultivator or elite, how could you not check
if there’s a CCTV on top of you? You’re worse than a burglar! Andy
Lau, if you’re not bent on running then come in!”
Wen Leyang hesitated slightly before pushing the door open and went in.
He removed his mask.
Leyang Tian was leaning on a big fat sofa. He chuckled as he looked at
Wen Leyang. He had wanted to open his mouth but Ji Fei and Shui Jing
jumped while giving astonished cries, “Y-y-you… have come from Mount
Qilian to Shanghai?”
The two monks last saw Wen Leyang when the Five Blessings gathered
together to combat the Weeping Buddha at Wen Village. After that, Wen
Leyang had brought a group to Mount Qilian. After these two brothers had
made a small fortune with First Uncle Wen Tunhai, they went traveling.
They did not know that Wen Leyang had left the Gold-Consuming Lair.
Leyang Tian was slightly startled. He pointed at Wen Leyang and asked old
monk Ji Fei, “You guys know each other?”
Ji Fei nodded, “He was our… the close kin that we mentioned.”
Leyang Tian was still smiling, “Then we’re one family.” However, his
gaze towards Wen Leyang did not have an ounce of friendliness.
Visit lightnovel_world_.com for a better experience Wen Leyang raised his
hand and pointed at the roof, “The people outside have nothing to do with
me. I came here to ask some questions.”
Leyang Tian looked at Wen Leyang with bright eyes. He was neither
friendly nor hostile, “Thank goodness they had nothing to do with you.”
Ji Fei was quick to sense that something was amiss but Wen Leyang was his
reassurance. He smiled widely at Leyang Tian, “What, there were
cultivators outside? Child, you don’t understand the methods of the
Heaven’s Cultivation, but worry not!”
Leyang Tian nodded without saying a word, suddenly inattentive. He turned
his head as he frowned slightly. He returned to normal after a few
seconds and asked Wen Leyang, “The people out there were truly unrelated
Wen Leyang did not understand why he would say this. He nodded, “We only
came in a pair.”
Leyang Tian picked up the phone on the table. He pressed a button and
said two words, “Come here!” After a while, a burly youngster knocked on
the door. Leyang Tian picked up the handgun and went out. He whispered an
order to the youngster and shoved the gun into the youngster’s chest.
The handgun’s shape was odd. The barrel was very long.
When Leyang Tian returned, he bid Wen Leyang to sit down with a smile. He
toyed endlessly with a black jade talisman in his hand as he spoke to Ji
Fei, “May the two immortals please continue.”
Fat monk Shui Jing knew his manners. He first glanced at Wen Leyang.
Wen Leyang was flattered. He nodded quickly.
Visit lightnovel_world_.com for a better experience Ji Fei and Shui Jing
had been strolling about in Jiangnan when they inadvertently saw a few
gloomy looking Eyang Sect disciples. They were curious and followed them.
They discovered that they were hunting a person from the World Sect’s
wicked faction. This wicked faction person had suffered grievous wounds.
The two parties, one chasing, the other running eventually died off
The two monks waited until all of them laid down. They braved themselves
and moved in closer. They did not expect that the person from the wicked
faction had not died completely and could recognize the both of them. The
person knew that they were rogue cultivators.
Before the wicked faction person died, he insisted on asking a favor of
Ji Fei and Shui Jing, requesting them to bring a jade talisman to
Painting Town in Shanghai and give it to the people of Leyang family.
If this had happened earlier, Ji Fei and Shui Jing would most probably
have thrown the jade talisman down a drain and run away as far as they
However, the brothers had a different perspective from before. They were
the saviors of the big and small rabbit demon. If they really had any
trouble, they would only need to run to Great Mercy Temple and all will
be well. They did not need to take the battle between the right and the
wicked to heart. Moreover, Leyang Wen had indeed acted honorably with the
both of them. Hence, they brought the jade talisman to Painting Town in
However, the two monks had been cautious. They had inquired if there were
any Leyang Town cultivators here beforehand, only then did they dare to
bravely take out the jade talisman and talk about the whole incident. If
Leyang Wen was present, they would have kept their mouths shut. They
could not guarantee that Painting Town would kill them to cover up.
The whole incident from its beginning to its end was nothing complicated.
Ji Fei and Shui Jing had come to Painting Town to help deliver an object
from a dead World Sect disciple to the Leyang family. However, due to the
involvement of the relationship between World Sect and Painting Town, it
had become somewhat dangerous.
After the fat monk Shui Jing finished, old monk Ji Fei opened his mouth
earnestly, “Leyang Tian, you don’t understand the methods of the
Heaven’s cultivation. It would be best if you let your brother handle
these things. After all, the dangers of the cultivation world…”
He had not finished when a sharp ‘pa’ sound came suddenly from
downstairs, followed by a furious howl akin to a tiger’s roar!
A few seconds later, a cacophony of panicked screams erupted in the whole
Leyang Tian comfortably stretched his limbs and opened his mouth
absent-mindedly, “The immortal had been worried for nothing. Heaven’s
cultivators may not be superior to others. Before god’s punishment,
they are nothing but leather sacks. After god’s punishment, they might
not even be leather sacks. Mortals have the methods of mortals. That
youngster just now was not even trained in Wushu but he still managed to
kill a cultivator. It seems that this cultivator is quite skilled.”
Visit lightnovel_world_.com for a better experience Wen Leyang let out a
strange cry and wanted to jump up. Leyang Tian was startled with a jump,
his fat palms waving about, “What’re you getting excited about?”
With a boom, the wooden doors of the room shattered to pieces. The little
supreme leader Liu Zheng appeared at the door. When he saw that Wen
Leyang was unscathed, he let out a relieved sigh, “Thank goodness
you’re alright.” Liu Zheng was carrying his newly bought backpack,
which contained the blunderbuss and his flying sword.
Wen Leyang asked Liu Zheng, “What happened?”
Liu Zheng sighed and pointed at his temple, “The supreme leader of Eyang
Sect, the enlightened person San Wei just died. He got shot here.”
Leyang Tian smiled easily, “Desert Eagle, nine millimeters. It could even
penetrate a normal steel board, what more a soft temple? No matter the
person, if they had an extra iron lump in their heads, they won’t be
able to live anymore, no?” Then, with a movement, he bulged his eyes,
“The person who died was a supreme leader of the Five Blessings?”
The old monk Ji Fei’s face was full of shock. He stood up with a thump,
“Impossible. Is San Wei out of his mind? Allowing others to freely fire
The fire weapons created by modern technology had always been at odds
with magical powers refined using ancient methods. Cultivators fear the
powerful impact of fire weapons, but a Heaven’s cultivator may rely on
his telegnosis ability. Especially short-range weapons like handguns, it
would be useless against an elite, such as the enlightened person San
Wei. San Wei’s telegnosis ability would have kept an eye on his
surroundings at all times. If a person takes out a gun, he would not have
the time to raise it and pull the trigger before being killed by him.
Leyang Tian answered old monk Ji Fei’s question with a smile, “Painting
Town has other talents. We can conceal the shooter from San Wei’s
telegnosis ability.” As he was saying this, he heaved a sigh. He looked
at Wen Leyang and little supreme leader Liu Zheng, “Now that that’s
settled. Tell me what you came to say!”
