The Strongest System - chapter-1104
In a village somewhere…
This was a place where mortals resided.
On the surface of the ocean, the cool ocean breeze gusted gently as a
figure lay there. Covered by seaweed from head to toe, he was just there
to have the seawaters slap against his body as it wished.
Wave after another…
No one knew if this person had died.
But, that figure moved all of a sudden! Slowly, he stood up from the
beach. However, after taking a single step, he collapsed into a fall
before picking himself up once more and heading over into the distance
In the village, billows of smoke were spouting out of the chimneys of the
houses there. Every single household was just that peaceful.
At the entrance of the village, children were surrounding a strange
“It’s the Seaweed Monster…!”
“Hurry up and hit the Seaweed Monster! He’s walking toward us now!”
This group of children was holding on to tree branches that were only as
thick as their thumbs.
When those tree branches made contact with the figure, it was as though
they were repelled away by some form of power as they snapped apart
Seeing a situation as such, those children broke out into sad boohoos as
they ran back into the village. They wanted to tell the adults that
someone had bullied them.
When the villagers rushed over to the entrance and caught sight of that
strange figure, all of them froze up. They did not know what sort of a
being this was, but he gave off a strange feeling.
“What are you? We’re only an extremely normal village here…!” A
bold and muscular young man gripped a tool tightly in his hands while
asking out nervously.
There was no reply.
However, everyone could sense that this person before them was extremely
dangerous. No one would dare to get on the wrong side of him.
They knew that there were Immortals in this world; they had once caught
sight of Immortals flying up in the sky above their village. However, it
did not cross any of their minds that this could be an Immortal.
Suddenly, the villagers saw the person before them wobbling unsteadily
before collapsing over onto the ground as though he had just died.
A long time later…
The villagers were still standing there without making any moves. It was
as though they were waiting for something. Not knowing just who in the
world this person before them was, all of them felt extremely afraid.
At this moment, an elderly man clutching onto a walking stick wobbled
over. He looked at that person draped in seaweed from head to toe and
deliberated for a short while.
All the surrounding villagers were waiting patiently, as though they were
waiting for this elderly man to speak up.
“Carry him into the village.” The elderly man croaked with a hoarse
All the young men in the village nodded their heads. They then approached
the person carefully to have him carried into the village.
Within a house…
The villagers were surrounding the entire place outside. Some of them
tiptoed while others snuck in secretly — everyone just wanted to catch
a sight of who this strange person really was, or what he was up to.
Why would he just arrive at the village entrance, standing there for no
reason before fainting over?
When the doctor of the village caught sight of the situation of the body
of this mysterious man, all of the curiously observing villagers heaved
in a deep, cold breath.
Some of the children were even shocked into tears.
At the area of his chest was a deep wound that had penetrated all the way
through. In fact, they could even make out that beating heart within his
body! However, the mysterious thing was that there wasn’t even a single
drop of blood flowing out at all!
“Just what sort of a person is he? How could he still be alive after
sustaining such a grave injury?” The doctor from the village gasped out
in astonishment. His chest wasn’t the only place that was penetrated;
there were signs of injuries on other parts of his body. Given such a
grave injury, if it were any of them in the same situation, they would
have long died.
The elderly Village Chief turned around to the people outside and said,
“Bring the children away first.”
Since the Village Chief had commanded, all the men in the village would
naturally not defy his orders. They then brought their children away.
“Just try your best.” The elderly man told the doctor.
The elderly doctor nodded his head. This was the first time he was coming
across an injury as such. And even if he had seen something similar, none
of them were like this man, whose heart was still beating and breath
From time to time, the men in the village would go out and hunt for some
beasts out in the wild; they too would get injured. If they had an injury
as such, they would have died long ago.
Soon, everyone dispersed from the area
The doctor was boiling some medicine and preparing to treat this
It wasn’t that the Village Chief had not considered the fact that
someone like this might be a bad person. But, when he looked at the
appearance of this man, he looked rather young in age, and didn’t seem
like a bad person at all. At the same time, they were all kind hearted
souls, and could not just sit by idly. Therefore, they could only try
their best for him.
A few days later…
The doctor would come by thrice a day to check on the situation of this
young man. He could not help but feel astonished over how strong of a
lifeforce this young man possessed. He had way too much tenacity and
grit! And when he smeared some medicine over this person’s wounds, they
would dry up without any time!
When they fed him porridge, they could even witness how the porridge
dissipated out the moment it entered his body!
This man was simply way too mystifying!
The villagers had just been discussing about this mysterious man the
entire time. The appearance of this mysterious young man had caused
everyone in the village to feel extremely curious. They were even talking
about him when they were out in the fields farming.
Yet another few days later…On a path out in the fields…
A young man stood there blankly as though he was despondent while looking
at the villagers go about their farming.
The children who were skipping all around the muddy fields surrounded
this mysterious young man while chirping out cheerily.
That was the name of the young man. No one in the village knew who this
young man was, or what he was called. Therefore, they decided to just
name him Seaweed then.
The reason was that he was covered in seaweed from head to toe when the
villagers first caught sight of him.
At the start, all the men of the village were rather fearful toward this
young man. But later on, they discovered that this young man didn’t
seem as though he could really speak. At the same time, he seemed rather
dim-witted. Even if they shouted out at him, he would only turn around
gently and look at them.
Not only that, that look of his was completely lifeless, as though his
soul had been sucked out of him.
At the same time, that gaping wound at his chest was still ever so
prominent. It would even emit some black smoke from time to time, looking
“Seaweed, why can’t you speak at all?” A small little girl wearing
pink clothes and two pigtails on her head hopped around happily while
looking up at Seaweed, seeming rather perplexed over this person.
“Seaweed doesn’t know how to speak. He only knows how to sleep.”
Another child replied.
Yet another few days went by…
By now, the villagers were long used to this young man. At the same time,
they felt that this young man was extremely strange. That was because the
young man would often head out to stand in the courtyard while raising
his head to look up into the sky. Every single time he did that, he would
continue standing all the way till night-time, without feeling sleepy at
In fact, he didn’t even know how to eat. His mouth would only open up
when someone brought food over to his mouth.
The village was conducting a ritual.
Because this was the drought season, all of the plants in the fields were
nearly dying now. Even though they could head out to other places to look
for more sources of water, all of those places were dozens of miles away,
which was really far for them. At the same time, the journey would be
fraught with dangers. This was something that posed an extreme difficulty
for the villagers.
Somewhere not too far from the village, there were villagers kneeling
down and bowing to pray to a sculpture that was made out of mud.
“Please bless us with wind and rain.”
The young man stood there, taking everything that was happening into his
eyes. Suddenly, his gaze flashed out with a glint for a brief moment
before disappearing once more.
That mouth of his that had never once taken the initiative to open on its
own started moving out, as though he was being moved by the chants of the
The moment his mouth opened, the entire sky started to howl with a gust.
That initially scorching sky was covered by a dark cloud right away.
There was no thunder.
No warning signs.
A downpour just descended upon them immediately.
When the villagers caught sight of this, all of them were emotional.
“Rain is here! The rain is here…!”
