The Immortal's Poison - chapter-24
The red-clothed girl looked at Wen Xiaoyi with surprise, she hesitated
for a moment then explained to Wen Leyang, “The Yin Chi is the most
incisive type of corpse vermin, it lives by hiding within a corpse on
most days and it is capable of manipulating corpses. However, if it were
controlling a dead serpent of that enormous size, it ought to not be a
being of this mortal world anymore.” By her reckoning, since Wen Leyang
had returned the Necromancy Seal to her without her asking for it, they
were now considered as comrades.
Wen Leyang nodded his head, “The one that bit me was only a foot long.
Its entire body was pitch black but where its eyes should be there were
only two white scales.”
Little Chili Pepper nodded her head as well, “It sounds like that Yin Chi
was already evolving into a spirit. During the process, it will look for
a more fearsome corpse to seek shelter in and continue to cultivate its
energy until its entire body has been covered with white scales. By then,
it would have evolved into an immortal snake spirit.” She smiled gently
as she was saying that, “These are all but legends. The Luo family had
been manipulating corpses for generations so we may know about these
things in detail more than others. My estimation is that the Yin Chi was
living in an ancient corpse, only then would it be able to manipulate the
corpse, yet it would not be possible to lure the corpse on its own
Wen Leyang said in his heart that his Eighth Generation Ancestor had
become a reanimated corpse because of it.
Little Chili Pepper saw the disbelief in Wen Leyang’s eyes and frowned
as she asked, “What happened? Was another corpse reanimated at that
time?” Her focused expression melted from a scorching-hot charm into a
different kind of alluring beauty.
Both Wen Leyang and Wen Xiaoyi nodded their heads together.
Little Chili Pepper shook her head in confusion, “That should be
impossible, unless… unless there was something else that had triggered
the corpse’s instincts, something like… items with celestial Yang
The old monk Ji Fei roared with laughter and he patted Wen Leyang’s
shoulder with a snide look, “You are still a virgin, boy… ouch!” As he
was halfway through his speech, he uttered a heart-wrenching cry and held
up his trembling hand, his entire palm had swelled up bigger than his
head in an instant.
Little Chili Pepper laughed heartily, feeling tremendously relieved from
her vented hatred, “How dare you simply touch the shoulder of Wen
Wen Leyang nodded to Little Chili Pepper while laughing, “I have now
understood the matter.” Immediately he extended a finger and swiped once
past the old monk’s inner palm. Ji Fei felt a jet of refreshing
sensation that penetrated straight into his bone marrow as the unbearable
agonizing pain from earlier vanished in the blink of an eye.

that ‘You’ve Got Me’ is a poisonous bug of celestial Yang force.
After making a scene for more than half a day it turned out that his
Eighth Generation Ancestor had been aroused by Wen Leyang himself. Fourth
Grandfather had known that he was carrying a Buddha’s Light Bug with
him when he entered the Red Leaves Forest, hence he had warned Wen Leyang
to not enter the Life Trademark.
Little Chili Pepper, however, does not know that he is carrying a
Buddha’s Light Bug on his body. She shook her head immediately and
said, “That’s still impossible. Even if you are a male virgin that is
not considered celestial Yang force…” She realized what she had been
saying and her pretty face blushed scarlet in a moment. Her appearance
may have been courageous and forceful but in reality, she was a little
maiden who had seldom descended from the mountain. She had always just
practiced martial arts in Crow Ridge and even her studies were personally
guided by the elders at home. However, the standard of living at Crow
Ridge is much higher than at the Wen family village as they’ve even
installed Broadband lines at the houses there.
Little Chili Pepper dared not bother Wen Leyang anymore so she turned
back to the two monks and diverged the topic of the conversation, “Tell
me quick, how are you going to compensate me for my precious treasures?
As for the respected Laozi’s trousers… I don’t want that!”
The fat monk’s face looked gloomy as he replied with a melancholic
voice, “Nevertheless you should decide on another form of compensation as
the both of us don’t have any money.”
Little Chili Pepper gave a ‘humph’ and said, “Who cares about money
anyways! You should compensate me with your very own magic weapons! Give
me the things that you had showed off so flashily before! I want the old
monk’s silver flying sword and your golden small inverted bell!” She
thought that she had finally seen through the two monks; although they
were dreadfully skilled, they still possessed a gentleman’s manner of
conceding to their defeat. They also had not made another attempt at
escaping ever since Wen Leyang blocked their way, so she took the chance
to demand her compensation at an exorbitant price.
Little Chili Pepper’s had expected some amount of grumbling and
protest, but she did not expect the two monks to procure these treasures
from their pockets almost immediately. Though they both had a sour and
unwilling expression as they toyed with the items in their hands and
asked, “These items… do you really want this?”
“Absolutely!” Little Chili Pepper answered with surprise but she was firm
with her decision.
“Take it then!”
The two monks abruptly shouted at once and simultaneously tossed their
magic weapons into the air. Their earlier boisterous manner had been
swept away, in the blink of an eye, they turned savage and ferocious!
The little silver sword swept forward as fast as electricity while the
small inverted bell rang ceaselessly, in a split second, a dark murderous
intent and the solemn glow of divine light entangled and soared towards

had never thought that the two monks would so violently lay down their
killing hands all of a sudden and she was completely unprepared to dodge
the attack. She could only watch as the flying sword swooped downwards in
a murderous arc and the small inverted bell grew as big as a house in
just a moment. There was a weapon above and below her and the two smashed
Little Chili Pepper did not even have the opportunity to curse at them,
she helplessly watched as her death approached when, all of a sudden, a
blurred shadow flashed before her eyes and a not-so strong-built but
sturdy enough body was shielding her from the attacks.
There was a loud bang that echoed through the mountain; Wen Xiaoyi had
fired another shot.
Wen Leyang shouted as he threw a punch, the strength from his entire body
was concentrated onto his fist. The sensation of the power generated from
the poison tempered into his body appeared once again as the skin on his
arm and fist wound itself up tightly and released a heavy blow of
strength. Wen Leyang felt that within the grasp of his hands were a pair
of iron fists!
The two magic weapons that appeared to be greeting the double fists
abruptly changed their course. They cut through an unbelievable
trajectory and shot angrily towards the empty space on the ground on the
both sides of the two companies.
Wen Leyang’s fist missed the target and as if the air could not bear
the strength exerted by the powerful punch, with a rush the atmosphere
rippled with gray and white light as it erupted with a loud bang!
Little Chili Pepper did not see the one punch that Wen Leyang had thrown
that seemed to have shattered the air, but from the awe-struck gazes of
the fat monk and the old monk, she could read the taste of terror in them.
The two magic weapons crashed into a distant stretch of mountain forest
not exceeding tens of meters away from the fight. The sound of a screech
that was more unpleasant to the ears than a gray owl’s wail soared up
towards the sky as the outline of a sand-colored human figure appeared
from the soil which had been plowed into furrows by the magic weapons.
The figure wriggled and wrenched itself free like to a mud catfish.
Neither Wen Leyang nor Little Chili Pepper were aware that someone had
been hiding not too far away from where they were. Though the fight had
nothing to do with this new person, somehow they were the recipient of Ji
Fei and Shui Jing’s attacks.
This content is taken from lightnov_elwor__ld_.comBoth the shoulders of
the yellow-shirt person had been badly mutilated, fresh blood gushed out
in streams and both of its arms had completely disappeared. It had
reacted to the sudden surprise attack and used both its arms to block the
magic weapons. Its body, however, did not stop for even a moment and kept
twisting about. After each twist, it would disappear into the air, and
almost concurrently it would reappear again ten feet away. It swiftly
escaped down the mountain in this bizarre manner.
The two monks roared loudly and as they could not stand to have their old
faces blackened again by the big-muzzled blunderbuss, they took the
opportunity and chased after the disappearing figure.
Everything happened in such a short moment that by the time Little Chili
Pepper had finally recovered her senses, the three persons had already
vanished down the mountainside without a trace.
Wen Leyang stuck his tongue out towards sheepishly and said to Wen
Xiaoyi, with his heart still throbbing with adrenalin, “Luckily I did not
manage to catch it!” The formidable force released from the two monk’s
magic weapons cannot be compared to the magic weapons from the Sun
Dynasty Palace. Not too far from where the two weapons had met the earth,
the trees had all been charred into charcoal and a deep pit the size of a
house had been dug into the mountainside.
The two monks had appeared in a rather baffling manner and then they had
disappeared without a sign. They left behind a trio of people all
standing at the same spot, staring speechlessly at one another.
Little Chili Pepper cracked a smile at Wen Leyang and her passionate
smile immediately melted the air, “Are you really a descendant of the Wen
Wen Leyang roared in laughter as he nodded his head.
Little Chili Pepper hesitated for a moment and finally gave in to the
‘try or die’ sentiment in her, “Many thanks to Wen… comrade Wen for
your helping hand earlier.”
Wen Leyang’s cheeks felt like they were burning as he waved his hands
around in a flustered manner. He wanted to say something conversational
in return but ended up stuttered for almost half a day before he could
finally blurt out, “It’s fine, you can just call me Wen Leyang.”
Wen Xiaoyi chuckled as she chimed in, “He has a nickname called Little

Little Chili Pepper giggled charmingly, “That nickname really suits you!”
Wen Xiaoyi continued to pester her, “How about you? What’s your name?”
“My name is Luo…” Little Chili Pepper suddenly blushed scarlet and she
skipped her own name and said, “I am the Inner Disciple of Crow Ridge and
my siblings call me by the nickname ‘Mumu’!”
Wen Leyang was stunned; he found her nickname very pleasant to the ears
and it was not as peppery as he expected. However, he did not know that
the nickname had originated from the word ‘tigress’, implying a
character of fierceness and ferocity, and it had gradually evolved into
The undead toddler seemed to have become bored and his plump body hobbled
and walked away. Wen Xiaoyi was full of curiosity and cautiously followed
behind the baby corpse. Wen Leyang looked towards Wen Xiaoyi out of
Little Chili Pepper, or Mumu, laughed and said, “Don’t worry, Ah Dan
will not harm others in normal times. Little Taiyang, the reason you are
here at Mount Emei, is it for…” She then lowered her voice and asked
conspiratorially, “The ancient cave at Zhanyan Peak?”
Wen Leyang raised his eyebrows slightly and nodded his head in
“So the Wen family had also heard about the incident that happened at
Zhanyan Peak four months ago?”
Wen Leyang did not answer the question but he asked a question in reply,
“Did you come to Mount Emei because of the incident at Zhanyan Peak too?”
Little Chili Pepper shook her head and an anxious expression melted into
her scorching gaze and burning-hot red lips, turning her worry into
