Episode 37

(Gains in the beast mountain)

Austin closed his eyes as he did the Fish Swimming Pace, and easily dodged all of the Scarlet Sword Boar's attacks. He could even feel the smallest of the Boar's movements effortlessly.     

No matter how ferociously the Scarlet Sword Boar attacked, it couldn't touch Austin at all.    

 In the end, the Scarlet Sword Boar got worn out and stopped. It simply stared at Austin with its dazed scarlet eyes.   

  It couldn't understand why this human in front of it could move so fast, and every time it tried to hit him, he dodged it in an incomprehensible manner.     Suddenly, Austin opened his eyes. His heart felt lighter than ever before.     

The incredible power of the Wind-commanding Skill took him by surprise. All he needed to do was to feel the wind, and now the Scarlet Sword Boar seemed like a little toddler rather than a vicious beast.   

A cold laugh escaped Austin's lips.    

 "Nice game, right? But it's about to end."    
There was a sudden flash of white as Austin pointed his sword at the Scarlet Sword Boar, his eyes sharp.     

Now it was time to put an end to it.    

 The animal's blood boiled with rage as it seemed to know what Austin meant to do as well.     

Its scarlet, bloodshot eyes had gone mad. The bristles on its body stood on their ends and hardened into steel needle-like points. Moreover, it grew larger in size which made it even more powerful and aggressive.     

With a flash of the sword, Austin attacked first.   

The Scarlet Sword Boar opened its mouth and roared. It kicked the ground hard with its heavy feet and pounced upon Austin like a rocket.     

When they got closer to each other, Austin suddenly smirked. He bent down and got under the Scarlet Sword Boar.     A beautiful arch formed in the air as he wielded his sword.    

 It was called Cloud Swordsmanship, a second grade swordsmanship that Austin learned at the Sun Sect.     

There was a ripping sound of something being cut open.     

Blood spurted out from the boar's body all over the place, and its innards and other body parts burst out and got scattered everywhere.   

  Then, there was a loud crash.     

The earth seemed to quake when the oversized Scarlet Sword Boar fell down heavily on the clearing. Its impact made a deep pit on the ground.   

Although the Scarlet Sword Boar's skin was as hard as steel, it had a weakness: its lower abdomen was soft and vulnerable.     

Of course, Austin knew that. However, he didn't directly attack its weak spot until the end as he wanted to practice his skills. Otherwise, the beast would've been dead as soon as the fight started.  

   After a while, Austin pulled his sword back and stared into the depths of the Beast Mountain. The deeper he went into the mountain, the more dangerous it would become.     

But, there were always opportunities in where the danger was. Only when he would've made it there would he gain what he wanted.    

 This wasn't Austin's first time to descend to the depths of the Beast Mountain, but he hadn't reached its deadliest place before.   

The sun shone brightly on the tall, thick grass and wild bushes. It was Austin's third day in the forest.     

He withdrew his sword from the head of a one-horned diabolic wolf.     

Following a flash of white, a pale beast core suddenly appeared from the wet, red hole on the diabolic wolf's head.    

 Over the past three days, Austin had killed seven or eight Monster Beasts and a Demonic Beast, but none of them had a beast core.     

Finally, he came across this level one, one-horned diabolic wolf. It was ferocious, bloodthirsty, and moved much faster than the Scarlet Sword Boar he had met on his first day. The wolf moved probably four or five times faster.    

 However, Austin had entered the third stage of Wind-commanding Skill, Using the Wind. After having mastered the first two skills—Feeling the Wind and Knowing the Wind, everything had gone well with the third one.   

In just two days, Austin had started to get the hang of the bodily movement skill of Using the Wind.     

Although it would still take a lot of time to fully master it, what he had learned now was already much stronger than the Fish Swimming Pace of the Sun Sect.    

 After less than twenty rounds, the one-horned diabolic wolf was dead.     

Austin took the pale beast core and held it in his palm.     

A level one diabolic beast's core could be exchanged for ten vital energy crystals. 

    He put the beast core into his Space Ring, then cleaned up the blood on his sword.     

After that, he cut down the sharp, hard black horn on the wolf's head and put it into the Space Ring as well.   

There were plenty of valuable things in diabolic beasts. For instance, this diabolic wolf's horn could be used to refine weapons or medicine.    

 If he could sell it after he went back home, it would be worth at least one or two vital energy crystals.     

However, his expression suddenly changed after he finished cleaning everything up.     

His spiritual sense told him that there were over ten one-horned diabolic wolves two hundred meters away from him!     

At their head was the largest wolf, which sauntered intimidatingly. It was most likely the leader of the pack.     

To Austin's surprise, it was a level two one-horned diabolic wolf while the others were all level one.   

He was still at the periphery of the Beast Mountain. He hadn't reached its center yet, but how come a level two diabolic beast had shown up?     

If it wasn't for his spiritual sense, he would've been in real trouble by now. He was so lucky to have found them out in time!    

 If it were other disciples who were stuck in this situation, most of them would probably die.   

  As for Austin himself, he didn't think he was powerful enough to beat the wolf pack too. A wolf pack led by a level two one-horned diabolic wolf was terrifying. 

    However, he was shocked that the level two one-horned diabolic wolf seemed to know what happened just now, and rushed in his direction with the pack following behind.    

 When one is losing, running away is the best choice—as the old saying goes.   

A sudden gust of wind blew, and Austin immediately floated in the air like a withered leaf, then disappeared in the depths of the woods in no time.     

The one-horned diabolic wolf smelled the blood and led his pack to where Austin was, immediately after he was gone.     

Their eyes burned viciously when they saw the dead, bloody one-horned diabolic wolf.    

 All of them began to howl.    

 The bloodcurdling sound spread throughout the thick forest.    

 Austin was already far away from the wolves at that time. When he heard their howls, he couldn't help but look back and chuckle. As the old saying goes, a wise man does not fight when the odds are against him.    

 Meanwhile, the level two one-horned diabolic wolf smelled the air around it and looked in Austin's direction, its eyes maliciously sharp.   

Austin had been pushing his way through the thick forests towards the center of the Beast Mountain for several days in a row.    

 He was always on the lookout for danger and fought against monster beasts, demonic beasts, and diabolic beasts one by one.     

During his adventure, he often came across some outer disciples who came to practice their skills, and none of them fought alone—they were all in a team.  

   When they met Austin—who traveled and fought alone, their reactions were varied. Some of them were amazed or admired him while others laughed at him.    

 However, most of these outer disciples were newcomers to the Sun Sect and had been members for only less than three years.    

 Although most of the new ones had heard about the legendary Austin—who had become the first outer disciple and later became known as an idiot, they didn't know how he looked like.   

Every outer disciple who had been in the Sun Sect for a long time had already been through the dangerous adventure in the Beast Mountain.     

Those who had succeeded were promoted to an inner disciple, some even core disciple. Others left the Sun Sect to seek further development. Meanwhile, those who hadn't made any progress in a long time already gave up and refused to go to the Beast Mountain anymore.    

 Only the newcomers would be here.     There were two or three teams that previously invited Austin to join them, but he politely declined.     

Although Austin was only on the fourth level of Energy Gathering Realm, he had two best cards—Wind-commanding Skill and spiritual sense.   

With his spiritual sense, Austin could know the level of the beasts that he would meet from far away. If it was an easy one, then he would go ahead and kill it; otherwise, he would run away.   

  And with his Wind-commanding Skill—a fifth grade bodily movement skill, he could easily beat most of the level one or two demonic beasts and diabolic beasts.     

He would only feel a little stressed when he was faced with demonic beasts or diabolic beasts that were famous for their speed.     

That was why Austin didn't want to be in a team.     

The gains would be split after the fight was over, and what he would've gotten would be much less.   

Besides, it wasn't always convenient to be in a team. One had to spend a lot of time waiting or covering for others.
