The Strongest System - chapter-104
The scene in front of the peak’s gate did not bother Lin Fan at all.
Man, it was not even any of his business. Now that the fiasco was over,
it was time to scoot.
But for the disciples camping in front of the gate, each of their
expressions were worse than the other. Some of them were saddened beyond
words while some sighed continuously, expressing their helplessness.
Back at his own sect, Lin Fan came back to Zhang Ergou and Feng Bujue,
who were getting along pretty nicely.
Based on cultivation bases, Feng Bujue’s was way superior compared to
Zhang Ergou, just like heaven and earth. But Feng Bujue was actually
referring to Zhang Ergou as the senior brother?!?
This fact astonished Lin Fan, and he wondered what tactic Zhang Ergou had
employed for this outcome.
Arrival of night…
Zhang Ergou and Feng Bujue had long returned to rest in their wooden
shed. Lin Fan stared at the night sky with a deep gaze which revealed his
hollowness, and let out a slight sigh.
“Things like stealing are indeed deplorable and not befitting a man such
as Yours Truly. But for the sake of regaining my fellow junior
disciples’ manhood, I guess it’s understandable” Lin Fan consoled
himself in his heart before leaping out into the darkness without a trace.
Danding Peak, Medicinal Herb Garden’s Disciple Resting Shed…
What Lin Fan did not know was that ever since the appearance of the giant
ark, Glory Sect had been in a state of tension.
The forbidden ground expedition this time round had cost Glory Sect a
“Senior brother! I heard that in this recent expedition, we lost eight of
our most talented inner sect disciples! Senior Brother Zong was totally
unable to fight back, and to make things worse, Senior Brother Tianyu had
his cultivation foundation utterly destroyed by the enemy sect’s
disciple. He is currently in a state of limbo, from which he may just
become a vegetable!”
“Senior Elder Jin came to the medicinal field and picked a few herbs,
seemingly to use for cultivation of pills to stabilize Senior Brother
Tianyu’s conditions. I wonder if it’ll work”
“Sigh, this is probably Glory Sect’s first loss in a hundred years. I
wonder which disciple’s sect it was who could suppress Senior Brother
“Go to sleep, this level of affairs is beyond our status. We just have to
guard the medicinal field properly”
The lights in the house gradually dimmed into darkness, blending with the
And at this point, Lin Fan’s presence slowly crept into the medicinal
field. In that vast field, blended within the darkness, he did seem kind
If it was a man lacking in courage, he might be scared out of his wits.
At this point, Lin Fan could only rely on the effects of the herbs to
‘’Ding…congratulations on discovering Zhu Lanxiang herb.”
“Zhu Lan Xiang: Soothing effect, useful in boosting blood circulation.”
Lin Fan gently touched a herb, and the description promptly popped up
inside his mind. But, this herb didn’t seem useful to Lin Fan. Hence he
tossed it away and touched another herb.
“Ding…congratulations on discovering Stone Flower herb.”
“Stone Flower: Strong effect, useful in training of the body.”
Herb after herb, touch after touch, Lin Fan could only shake his head in
Unsuitable. Thoroughly unsuitable.
There wasn’t even anything that was close. Could it be that in this
huge medicinal field, there wasn’t even a single herb that could relate?
But, looking at a large amount of ground he had not covered, Lin Fan
eased a little and continued searching.
Tonight’s moonlight was mild and intermittent, occasionally hiding
behind the clouds of the night sky. And in this vast medicinal field, a
figure was sneakily committing a heist. It was just that he couldn’t be
seen in the eyes of others.
“Ding…congratulations on discovering Intense Yang Grass.”
“Intense Yang Grass: Strong effect, useful in boosting Qi and vitality.”
At this moment, Lin Fan stopped. This Intense Yang Grass contained just
three blades of leaves, a bright red rhizome but was otherwise bald.
“This might just do it.”
Lin Fan garnered that this vitality boosting herb might be pretty
beneficial in boosting that aspect of a man.
Following this, Lin Fan continued his search for herbs. Obtaining the
first reliable herb was a shot of confidence to him. This medicinal field
definitely had the herbs he was looking for.
Dawn gradually arrived…
For the disciples guarding the medicinal field, work went on as usual
when the sun rose daily.
A few disciples carried buckets of water along with hoes, ready to loosen
the magical soil of the field. Just as humans needed to breathe, so did
the soil of the field.
“Ahh…Senior brother! You guys… please come quickly!” A voice shouted
from the other end.
The various disciples who were each doing their own stuff were puzzled at
this voice, promptly rushing over, “What’s wrong?”
“Senior Brothers…take a look.” proclaimed the trembling, white-faced
disciple, pointing at the patch he was manning.
“This…” The disciples who ran over from the voice stood dumbstruck over
the sight in front of them.
The huge area of the medicinal field in front of them… Empty.
It was as if dogs had excavated and rummaged through the entire field,
that was the miserable state of the field.
“How…could this be? It was fine yesterday! How could it turn like this
overnight!?” The disciples stuttered with shock all over their faces.
This was the most important place of Danding Peak! What would they do if
the Senior Elder knew that the entire land was excavated due to their
Everyone looked at each other, lost for words.
“Senior Brothers! Please head over, there’s trouble over here!”
At this moment, yet another call of distress emerged from another side of
the medicinal field.
Everyone’s face changed immediately. Could it be?
When they arrived at the scene, all they saw was a barren plot of land,
devoid of any sort of medicinal herb. Their hearts, which were pumping
furiously initially, gave up and died internally.
Dead…we’re dead meat.
The whole batch of medicinal herbs was all stolen! The consequences will
be dire, extremely dire.
This thief was too vicious!
“Hurry up and check! What other herbs are we missing?” A Senior Brother
in charge of the medicinal field roared.
Not long after, all the disciples gathered back.
“Senior Brother, field number one lost Intense Yang Grass! Field number
two lost Green Fairy Grass! Field number three lost Lively Root Grass…”
Hearing the various reports, the senior brother in charge of the fields
grew totally white. Spurting out whatever blood he had left, he collapsed.
Lin Fan had no idea that his scavenging of herbs would cause panic among
tons of people.
At this moment, he was just waking up from his restful slumber. He
entered dreamland shortly after returning from the previous night’s
adventure. As for cultivating pills, Lin Fan was in no hurry. He could
slowly take his time to explore the procedures after he was awake.
The herbs he had swept from last night were more than sufficient for his
At this moment, Lin Fan pulled out an Intense Yang Grass, a Green Fairy
Grass and a Lively Root Grass.
In the medicinal field, only these 3 herbs were more suited to his needs.
The thought of what the pills would come out to be made him bubble with
Meanwhile, Feng Bujue and Zhang Ergou were cultivating themselves within
their own houses. As they both possessed the Suyuan Pills provided by Lin
Fan, they were able to enhance their cultivation rate. Furthermore, Feng
Bujue was not a selfish guy, so he would naturally teach the Martial arts
and Mental arts he knew to Zhang Ergou.
As to when master Lin would pass down some skills to them, while they had
expectations within their hearts, seeing his casual attitude about it,
they were in no hurry to push the topic.
In their eyes, master Lin would definitely teach them one day.
And just at this moment, a roar came out from master Lin in his wooden
Feng Bujue and Zhang Ergou opened their eyes in shock and rushed promptly
towards master Lin’s wooden house.
For things like Intense Yang Grass, it’d be easier for you guys to think
of it in terms of Yin & Yang, the chinese concept for Female and Male
energies. Hence many things that boost virility in the chinese culture
are called boosting of the “Yang Qi”, where Qi is a term defining the
metaphorical energy each of us have within our bodies!
