The Immortal's Poison - chapter-163
The roar was thunderous. It came from the base of the mountain. A thick
rage and discontent were suppressed within the loud and sonorous voice.
Everyone in the village seemed to have angry expressions at the same
time. Grand Elder Wen noticed that there was a strange expression on Wen
Leyang’s face. He asked in a low voice, “What, you know that person?”
Wen Leyang smiled bitterly and nodded, “The voice is right, but the
sentence, not quite.”
Wen Leyang was not the only one who was puzzled. Among the crowd, Xiaoyi,
Bushuo Buzuo, Chi Maojiu and Luo Wanggen all had the same expressions as
him. They could all recognize the voice’s master, it was the ugly youth
who made their acquaintance at the edge of the Gold-Consuming Lair, Qin
After a while, Qin Zhui’s voice came from the mountain’s base again,
it was still as strong and sonorous, “How evil is the East Wind, thinning
the thick joy. With my chest full of sadness, I have lived miserably in
the years after we parted. Thinking back, it was all a mistake, mistake,
After the first ‘mistake’, countless crows in the mountain were
startled by the enthralling roar and flew in all directions.
After the second ’mistake’, the crows wailed. Their bodies shuddered
as they tried to fly high.
After the third ‘mistake’, the roar like a surprise thunder abruptly
vanished. The messy cawing which had just started in the skies also
vanished, leaving behind a silence akin to death.
Only a few people with sharp ears like Wen Leyang and Bu Le could hear
the sounds of falling objects far away. Who knows how many crows had
shook to their deaths in mid-air!
Wen Leyang’s expression became more peculiar. He said to the few elders
beside him, “This poem… The way he recited is even more unlike him!”

had been training to use his sword to enter the force. When he had
completed his training he met Wen Leyang’s group who was about to enter
the Gold-Consuming Lair. He ran over and ‘competed’ without saying a
word. That was how they had met. Although it was not like meeting a long
lost friend, they left good impressions on the other’s part. To Wen
Leyang, Qin Zhui was a man with profound cultivation base, honorable,
rough and reckless. He did not think that this man would be reciting a
poem at the base of the mountain, scaring a mountain-full of crows to
The brothers Bushuo and Buzuo went in front of Fourth Elder Wen, asking
if they should bring men down the mountain to stop him. Wen Leyang shook
his head at the elders, “This man shouldn’t be our enemy!”
Wen Buzuo chimed in, “I think so too. But we may know his face and not
his heart. There are also some uncertainties in this situation…”
Fourth Elder Wen simply waved a hand and dismissed him.
Not long later, amidst the heavy but swift footsteps, a burly young man
who looked to be the same age as Wen Leyang appeared at the village’s
entrance. It really was the ugly man Qin Zhui. When he appeared, Xiaoyi
exclaimed out of surprise in a low voice, “Qin Zhui, what happened to
Wen Leyang also felt a chill in his heart! He had met Qin Zhui not long
ago in the City God Temple of Shanghai, he did not look like this.
Although Qin Zhui had a big mouth, small eyes and nostrils which pointed
to the sky, ugly as hell, his person was straightforward and did not
bother about trifles. He always had a neat air about him. But now, his
face was yellowish, his cheeks and eye sockets sunken, his lips full of
dry cracks, even his brows had a thin layer of clear frost! They had
parted for not more than thirty days, but he looked thirty years older.
Wen Leyang also asked Qin Zhui with eyes full of shock, “What… what
happened to you?”
Qin Zhui turned and flashed an ugly smile towards XIaoyi, perhaps in
greeting, but he ignored Wen Leyang. His gaze scanned the crowd and
suddenly froze. He oddly opened his mouth, his voice was jerky like two
pieces of dried cowhide were rubbing together, “I went to One Word
Palace, then I found out… If that was the case, then why did you have
to say those words during that time…” Qin Zhui stammered for half a
day. He suddenly shook his head forcefully and changed his tone, “I’ve
come as promised. If I win, you come with me!”
As he was saying this, he lightly detached the Tang knife from his back.

knife in his hand, the decadence of senescence was completely swept away.
In an instant, his whole person turned biting cold. Compared to the
happy-go-lucky, gallant Qin Zhui back in the Gold-Consuming Lair, he was
less pure now and was more merciless!
His mannerism was imposing, but he did not conceal the longing in his
Well-behaved child Luo Wanggen explained to the disciples of Wen Bucao
beside him in a low voice, “This man just likes to fight…”
Little Chi Maojiu was brighter than Luo Wanggen, “Didn’t you hear him
say that if he wins, he’ll go with him? He didn’t seem to come here
merely looking for a fight. There must be something else to this.” Chi
Maojiu put on a professional frown, acting steady, but his face was full
of irrepressible excitement.
A quiet and beautiful voice, with a hint of stupefied cold, came softly
from among the crowd, “Nobody takes the words they said when they were
Low, surprised cries sounded. The womenfolk of the Wen family village and
Wen Buzuo’s gazes were lit up by the flames of gossip, making their
faces light up. The one who answered was impressively the beloved
daughter of One Word Palace who had wanted to marry Wen Leyang no matter
Qin Zhui’s eyes were visibly bloodshot, turning into a ferocious red
color. His voice was still like dried hides rubbing together, but another
blood-dripping sound was mixed into it now, “You don’t take it
seriously, but I do!”
As he said this, his sturdy body suddenly leaped high, doing a somersault
in mid-air. Then, the Tang knife in his hand brought with it a fury that
was unacceptable to the eyes and slashed mercilessly towards the empty
space at the village entrance! The instant he slashed, the world seemed
to turn into a fragile soap bubble, fracturing noiselessly but
tragically. Under the biting cold of the blade, the knife was the sky,
the knife was the earth, the knife was the dominator of all!
There were no booming blasting sounds under the ferocious blade, even
when the knife had made contact with the ground, nothing seemed to have
happened. Old demon rabbit squinted his eyes abruptly. He said to the
people around him in a low voice, “He can execute and retrieve with ease,
not even stirring up a cloud of dust. The force of this one slash was all
dispersed in the air. From substance to void, the blade followed the
wind. Hehe, when did such a master appear among the young ones?”
After Qin Zhui made that slash, he stood back up on his original spot.
His expressions had calmed down tremendously. He turned and looked at Wen
Leyang, “Thanks to you, I have learned Force-Hide from Force-Enter.”
During that time in the Gold-Consuming Lair, Wen Leyang had repeated Guo
Huan’s words and instructed Qin Zhui in a grand fashion. During that
time, nobody would have expected Qin Zhui to realize everything so
Visit lightnovelworld.com for a better experience Wen Leyang chuckled and
nodded, “Congratulations!” The issue between Qin Zhui and Nineteen was
unrelated to him. As long as Qin Zhui does not kill Nineteen in a fit of
madness, he would not interfere.
Old demon rabbit Bu Le was a great expert in cultivation. Although he did
not cultivate ‘Force magical power’, he knew about the theories
behind it. He swayed his head and exclaimed, “Enter the Force, melting
the world into the blade, turning the blade into the world; Hide the
Force, melting the blade into the world, with one slash, the world is the
blade! Although these two levels sound awkward, they cannot be compared
with each other.”
When the monk Bu Le looked at Qin Zhui again, his gaze was full of
genuine keenness. His greatest hobby was to recruit disciples. When he
saw a promising new shoot, he could not help but feel especially elated.
Wen Leyang was not interested in other people’s method of practice. He
was even less interested in Qin Zhui’s cultivation base. What he was
interested in right now was to know what had conspired between Qin Zhui
Qin Zhui had a dried-up appearance and his gaze was unfocused. He was
looking at Nineteen with a complicated expression, but when he heard old
demon rabbit Bu Le’s words, his eyes lit up suddenly. As if suddenly
forgetting about Nineteen he turned and looked at Bu Le. “You know about
the Force? Then let me ask you, after Force-Enter comes Force-Hide, after
Force-Hide is Force-Void, but what is Force-Void?”
In an instant, the onlookers all had anxious expressions. All of them
were silently cursing in their hearts. Wen Leyang also did not know
whether to laugh or to cry. He knew that Qin Zhui was a martial maniac,
but he had not expected him to be as maniacal as this. Once he heard the
method of practice of his magical power, he tossed Nineteen who wrenched
his heart to the back of his mind.
A layer of irritation surfaced on Nineteen’s initially stoic face.
Maybe her pride was wounded.
When old demon rabbit heard Qin Zhui’s words, a puzzled expression
surfaced on his face, “Who told you that Force-Void comes after
Force-Hide? If there is no Force then what will you be refining?”
Qin Zhui’s spirits had seemingly plunged into his cultivation all of a
sudden. He looked at Wen Leyang again, “Is Force-Void really the one that
comes after Force-Hide?”
Wen Leyang smiled bitterly with playful eyes. How should he know if it
was right or wrong? Guo Huan was the one who told him about Force-Hide
and Force-Void. If it was before, he would have nodded confidently and
told Qin Zhui, “It is Force-Void. Go and train.” He did not dare to say
so now. Guo Huan had been lying to him from the start. Wen Leyang dared
not believe everything that he said anymore.

after muttering for a while, “I think, after Force-Hide, should be
Force-Break. If you have the time, think through it carefully!”
Qin Zhui stood riveted on the spot. He hit his head lightly on the hilt
of the Tang knife. After a few minutes, he suddenly lifted his head. His
gaze was full of infatuation and excitement, with a tinge of puzzlement.
He bowed deeply towards old demon rabbit, a genuine joy apparent in his
tone, “Many thanks for the old god’s enlightenment! This junior has
learned something here, if there’s anything you want me to do, I’ll
not refuse!” As he said this, he gave a small wooden bell that was used
for communication to old demon rabbit. He turned and descended the
mountain with a great laugh.
Everyone was bug-eyes. Qin Zhui was leaving? Just like that?
Nineteen had saved Ah Dan and Mumu during the battle with the Weeping
Buddha. She also had an exquisite idea. She had mingled wonderfully with
everyone while she was resting her wounds in Wen family village. Half a
month ago when Wen Leyang ascended the mountain with his wounds, she
truly did show that she could risk her life. Although her motives for
staying in Wen family village to marry Wen Leyang no matter what was very
suspicious, everyone had given her some face. Even the four elders did
not show any signs of repulsion towards her. That was why even Wen Buzuo
was shy to call out to Qin Zhui…
Wen Nine and Wen Thirteen who had always been silly were not silly now.
They moved close to Nineteen and asked in hushed tones, “He’s… he’s
leaving just like that?” There was an unconcealable disappointment in
Ninteen’s face was full of anger. She stamped her foot forcefully,
“He’s always been like this. Later, after he thought it through,
he’ll come back…” She had not finished when an angry yell echoed from
outside the village. Qin Zhui brandished his Tang knife and came running
back with exasperation. He entered the village, pointed rudely at old
demon rabbit Bu Le’s nose and cursed, “The old man’s intentions are
too evil! You almost deceived me!”
Everyone let out a relieved sigh. Seeing that Qin Zhui had returned, they
were genuinely happy.
Old demon rabbit almost vomited blood. He angrily waved his sleeve, “You
are a vile man. I shan’t argue with the like of you!”
