Episode 34

(Setting Off A Treacherous Adventure (1)

It was widely known that Beast Mountain was a dangerous place in the Prime Martial World. Specifically, it was a small ridge that stretched from the side of the Grand Desolation Mountain.     

Most of the creatures living in Beast Mountain were low-level monster beasts, demonic beasts, and diabolic beasts.     But for many disciples who were merely at the first or second level, those beasts posed quite a threat.     

These beasts were born stronger than human beings. Some that descended from special bloodlines also possessed magic power.     

However, disciples knew that danger often came with risks as well as opportunities.   

Cultivators could hunt in the Beast Mountain for the cores of the beasts that lived there. They could also collect assorted herbs and use them during their practice, or else, trade them for other resources that their training required.     

Moreover, actual combat with various beasts was one of the most efficient ways to improve one's cultivation base. 

    It could be said that practicing at Beast Mountain was a must for all low-ranked disciples of Sun Sect.     

During their stay at Beast Mountain, some disciples found surprises and opportunities, while others lost their lives.     

At this moment, a small group of five young men and two women arrived at the front entrance of Beast Mountain.

  The two people walking in the front were a man and a woman. The man was named Marvin Su. He was tall and handsome. As he cooled himself with a fan made of white jade, he looked quite elegant.   

The woman was Lara Tang. She was also tall and slim. On this day, she had chosen to wear delicate makeup. She appeared as noble and graceful as a princess. Obviously, the two were taking the lead.     

Two years ago, Lara Tang joined Sun Sect and became an outer disciple. She was from quite a powerful family in the region where Sun Sect was located. 

    Since childhood, she was favored by her parents like a spoiled princess. With the unconditional support of her family, Lara Tang started practicing martial arts at a very young age. By the age of fifteen, she had reached the fifth level of the Energy Gathering Realm.    

 Attributable to her powerful family background, her gifts, as well as her outstanding beauty and grace, Lara Tang was a popular girl among the Sun Sect's outer disciples. Many of the male outer disciples fancied her.   

One of them was Marvin Su, who was standing beside her.    

 It was only his third year at the sect as an outer disciple. However, he was extremely talented and had made tremendous progress.     

He had already defeated several of his seniors and become a celebrity among the outer disciples.     

Rumor had it that his cultivation base had reached the seventh or eighth level and that it was only a matter of time before he was promoted to inner disciple status.    

 At the news that Lara Tang was eager to hone her skills at Beast Mountain, Marvin Su volunteered to be her escort. 

    With his cultivation base, Marvin Su could easily handle most of the dangers in Beast Mountain.     

After Marvin Su decided to accompany Lara Tang, the other five outer disciples joined them. Escorted by such high ranked cultivators, these five disciples felt that their safety in the mountain could be guaranteed, and so they also headed for Beast Mountain as part of the team.   

Although a majority of the beasts in Beast Mountain were at the first or second level and not formidable, their numbers could be overwhelming. It was a known fact that most beasts traveled or lived in groups.    

 Once beasts attacked together, it would be highly risky for a cultivator to battle them on his own. Therefore, the outer disciples would usually form a team before going to the Beast Mountain. 

    "Look! Beast Mountain is right ahead of us," exclaimed Lara Tang jubilantly.   

  Lara Tang seemed quite excited as she studied Beast Mountain that was covered in thick forests. Even though they were standing at the entrance, the group could hear the roars of the wild animals within.   

It was her first time practicing at Beast Mountain. And yet, she didn't fear it. Instead, she seemed to look forward to the experience.     

Since Lara Tang was already at the fifth-level of the Energy Gathering Realm, she was not reckless. Adding that she was with six other outer disciples and the strong Marvin Su was also on her team as her loyal protector, she really had nothing to fear.    

 Now, all she wished for was to enter Beast Mountain, demonstrate her talents, and bring back a ton of treasures to show off.     

Marvin Su stood beside Lara Tang and waved his fan with a smile. The complacency he felt seemed to convey that he already knew how it would all work out.     

After all, he had been to Beast Mountain several times. Nothing in it was threatening to him anymore.   

Meanwhile, the other five outer disciples seemed tense and cautious.   

  Considering that many outer disciples died in the mountain every year, there was still a very real possibility that these five disciples, who were all at the fourth level of the Energy Gathering Realm, might get hurt or worse. And so, they dared not be overconfident.    

 At the sight of the grave expressions of their faces, Lara Tang could not help but snicker. Then, she said scornfully, "A bunch of cowards. Scared even before you step into the mountain."    

A fork in the road appeared as the seven disciples rounded a hill.     

A towering tree stood at the fork. Its numerous branches extended very far, and its leaves were green and thick. From afar, it looked like a gigantic umbrella.   

  Under the tree sat a middle-aged man with his legs crossed. He seemed rather ordinary in linen clothes.   

His eyes were closed, and his body was still as if he were a statue.   

Next to him stood a young man around seventeen in a grey-and-white robe. That was Austin.
