True Martial World - chapter-49
Yi Yun could no longer wait. He poured the sauces he had prepared earlier
and tore off a pheasant leg and bit down.
The skin was crisp and the flesh juicy. The meat was tender, and oil
oozed out with each bite. His mouth was full of fragrance.
It had to be said that the fat elder’s unknown pheasant was absolutely
delicious. It was no wonder that even after roasting it to such a
pathetic state, he was still able to enjoy it.
Besides, the meat included a stream of pure energy. As it entered Yi
Yun’s stomach, this energy spread throughout Yi Yun’s body, giving
him a sense of warmth that was indescribably comfortable.
The old man’s wine was also extremely special. After baking in salt,
the alcoholic taste had not evaporated. It had seeped into the pheasants
flesh, giving it an intoxicating aroma.
The wine contained even purer energy, refreshing Yi Yun’s entire body
till his pores opened.
Lin Xintong looked curiously at Yi Yun. Just from the smell and
appearance, it was easy to guess that it tasted great.
This kid was at most twelve and he has such skills?
“Sister Fairy, do you want some?” Yi Yun’s words were extremely
sweet. He knew that the girl’s stature was extraordinary. The old man
had treated her as the apple of his eyes, so although Yi Yun didn’t
know her name, there was no harm calling her Sister Fairy.
“Eh…” Lin Xintong hesitated, but seeing Yi Yun tear off an
untouched drumstick for her, she was unsure what to do.

After hesitating a moment, she accepted it and took a small bite.
It was indeed delicious!
In comparison, this would make her master’s “Black Charred
The girl took out a handkerchief, wiped her mouth and thanked him with a
She had never tried such a way of cooking and the taste was very unique.
Although Lin Xintong lead an austere life, and was not obsessed with
food, but having been out in the wilderness for training, and having been
eating the bitter “Black Charred Pheasant” daily, she had reached her
Although the girl appreciated it, she did not exaggerate in her praise.
But the fat elder was different. He was a greedy glutton. Despite him
reaching the state where he could avoid grain many years back, he had
never succumbed to it. He made sure to have four meals a day, breakfast,
lunch, dinner and supper.
Usually, he would be supplied with food and drink at home; it tasted
good, and was sufficient to satiate his taste buds. But now with him out
with his disciple, it was tough on him. He was already sick of eating ash
His greed had led to him salivating, but he could not lower his status to
ask from Yi Yun. As Yi Yun did not seem to have any intention at giving
him some of the pheasant, the fat elder was unhappy. This kid was such an
ingrate, did he forget who gave him the pheasant and wine?

“I didn’t expect that you could cook. I have tasted all the world’s
delicacies, so I am definitely an authority when it comes to taste! Come
on, kid, I’ll appraise you, and see how good is your culinary skills.
I’ll give you pointers if there’s any room for improvement.” As he
said that, a greasy fat hand stained with soot stretched before him. He
had not even wiped his hands from eating the roasted pheasant!
Yi Yun wanted to avoid by instinct, but for some reason, although the fat
hand’s speed wasn’t fast, he was unable to evade it. In the end, a
small portion of the pheasant was teared off. Two cream of the crop wings
Yi Yun cursed in his heart. But at this time, the fat elder had already
bit down, as he looked sardonically at Yi Yun, which read, “You think
you could avoid my moves with your little abilities?”
As he bit down, the grease exploded and fragrance filled his mouth. The
fat elder’s eyes lit up!
The meat was of course delicious, but the most important thing was the
taste of alcohol.
In fact, the old man had eaten lots of delicious delicacies, but this was
the first time seeing such an approach.
Having the alcohol absorbed into the meat, it made it even tastier!
He was not only a glutton, but also an alcoholic. It had never crossed
his mind that alcohol could be used in this way. Alcohol and pheasant,
two distinct and delicious tastes when combined could be so unbelievable!

In contrast, the roasted pheasant he previously made was only fit for
Although the old man had already finished a pheasant previously, and the
unknown pheasant was extremely large in size, but having learned the
Elephant Swallowing Technique, Yi Yun knew that the meat was extremely
resistant to digestion. A normal person could survive on a drumstick for
days without going hungry.
Having eaten one and a half, the old man had no indications of being full.
Although he looked refined eating the pheasant, the old man’s speed was
surprisingly fast. He finished half a pheasant in about a minute, leaving
only a pile of bones.
The bones, even the delicate rib bones were eaten clean, putting a dog to
The old man was not bothered about Yi Yun’s surprised gaze, and calmly
wiped the oil off his mouth saying, “The taste is passable. If you
improve further, you will catch up to my roasted pheasant.”
Yi Yun nearly choked upon hearing the old man’s brazen claims. What
sort of person was he? It felt like his stature was extraordinary, but
why was he so shameful?
The old man pretended not to notice Yi Yun’s despising glare and looked
at the salt baked pheasant in Yi Yun’s hands saying, “Why aren’t
you eating, are you full?”
“No!” Yi Yun was shocked, he quickly shook his head and attacked the
salt baked-pheasant in his hands.

What a joke. If he was slower by a second, or even in a blink of an eye,
the pheasant in his hands could have turned to a pile of bones.
Besides being tasty, the meat was great nourishment for the body. Yi Yun
felt his originally empty body fill up with energy in a short while. It
made his blood begin to stir, and made him grow stronger.
Could this pheasant be a descendent of some ancient bird desolate beast?
Yi Yun came to an acceptance that with rich people eating this kind of
foods daily, their strength was bound to increase at rapid paces.
He was initially feeling joyous from completing his Tempered Body, but he
had already calmed down.
His starting point was considered low. Even if he made a meteoric rise in
a small tribe, but in a big tribe, it would have been nothing
spectacular. He still had a long road ahead.
“Hey, from what I see, you have some culinary skills, and it can be
considered fate that we got to know each other…” Saying that, the fat
elder touched his ring.
This was the second time Yi Yun heard these words, and was already immune
to it. He calmly wiped his mouth, waiting for the fat elder to take
“Hehe, Kid, take this to buy some sweets,” said the fat elder as he
took out two golden ingots from his ring. It looked like it weighed half

This was the first time Yi Yun was seeing golden ingots. Back on Earth,
he had only seen gold plates displayed in the glass cases of banks, but
they were not this big.
Yi Yun could not help taking another glance.
“Come, I still have over a twenty chickens. You can cook it, and I’ll
give you these two gold ingots. Then, you can buy lots of sweets,” said
the old man happily. Although he did not admit verbally, he knew that his
culinary skills were nothing compared to Yi Yun. Yi Yun’s salt-baked
pheasant, especially combined with the alcohol and the meat fragrance had
made the fat elder’s mouth water.
Upon hearing this, Yi Yun curled his mouth. In the Cloud Wilderness, gold
ingots were only pleasant to the eye, but they were of no use.
On Earth, these two large gold pieces would have been enough to buy a
lifetime’s worth of food. But in this world, food was very expensive,
especially in the Cloud Wilderness. Even with gold ingots, one might not
be able to buy anything. If he were to use gold to exchange with Lian
Chengyu for food, it would be throwing himself to the wolves.
“I don’t want gold,” said Yi Yun who was unmoved. This old man had
initially given him bronze coins, and now he gave gold. It was clear he
was treating Yi Yun as some kid who got lucky, and not someone who
practiced martial arts. “Sir, don’t you know that the outcome would
be disastrous if a kid carries gold into the streets?”
“Eh?” choked the fat elder. Thoughts such as even if Yi Yun
couldn’t use it, he could have given it to his parents floated into the
Lin Xintong who was by the fat elder’s side looked at Yi Yun with
surprise. The principle of an innocent man gets into trouble because of
his wealth was simple, but as a twelve year old child, he was not only
unmoved by the gold, but he said it as a matter of fact. It was pretty
“Then what do you want?” said the fat elder as he kept the gold.
“I only want one item from you Sir,” Yi Yun said it slowly and calmly
as he looked the fat elder in the eye.
The fat elder said with interest, “Say it.”
“Little me can tell that Sir is some extraordinary person. You must be
someone of a high standing and exceptional status, with…”
“Alright, cut the flattery.” The fat elder looked at Yi Yun with a
despicable look. This kid sure was odd.
“Oh…I’m not sucking up to you, I’m just expressing my admiration
towards you. You can have all that and admired by many, including me,
because…Sir you have the strength!”
“In this wilderness, those with strength will be honored by others!”
“So little me will make a request with great courage for one item, that
Yi Yun said those words with confidence. Although he had said it slowly,
it entered straight into the ears, giving the fat elder a shock.
Lin Xintong blinked her pair of beautiful eyes and looked at Yi Yun with
surprise. What Yi Yun had said was very simple, but when her master had
asked him what he wanted, he had said those words to express his desire
of becoming strong. This was unlike how kids speak without thought.
