Episode 23

(I will go to the beast mountain)

Roger said confidently and laughed heartily.     

"I'm currently on par with Philemon and the others, and they are my rightful opponents. Not a nobody just at level three of Energy Gathering Realm. I won't kill Austin, but he should be punished.

 Tell your men to give Austin as much trouble as they can. I won't let him lead a comfortable life!"    

"Yes, sir! I'll convey your instruction to my men immediately. We won't give Austin a chance to make trouble again!" the young man said respectfully.     

"You may leave now. I'm going to take the time to practice. I intended to attend the Five Sects Competition in the next two years, so I must take my time. If you don't have anything important, don't come and bother me," Roger ordered.   

"Yes, sir! May you succeed and defeat Philemon soon!" the young man said in flattery.     

Roger nodded, enjoying being flattered very much. He shook his sleeve and then a small black bag flew out. He handed it to the young man and said, "Take it. If you're loyal to me all the time, you'll get a lot of benefits when I succeed."    

Roger then closed his eyes and continued with his meditation.     

The young man politely took the small black bag and pinched it. A look of joy appeared on his face. Knowing that he shouldn't stay there any longer, he immediately stepped out from the cave.     
Meanwhile, in another cave of the Sun Mountain, two young women sat face to face.    

 One of them was at the age of fifteen or sixteen years old. She had a delicate facial profile and starry eyes, and her frame was slim and lithe.   

If Austin were here, he would have immediately recognized that this girl was Denali.     

The young woman sitting in front of Denali had coiled her beautiful hair in a bun. With crescent brows, beautiful eyes, a small nose, and slim frame, she looked incredibly charming.    

 However, with an emotionless face, she looked as cold as ice. Even the temperature in the cave seemed had dropped more due to her coldness.     

"A grunt disciple named Austin saved your life, is that right? But he is a man of mental deficiency. So, how could that even be possible?" the young woman asked emotionlessly.     

"Yes. That night, the rogue brought me to a glade and was about to rape me. 

Fortunately, Austin showed up in time and saved me."    

Denali's face turned pale at the thought of what had happened to her that night.

   "A mentally disabled grunt disciple named Austin? I think I know this guy. 

But I'm not so sure if we're talking about the same person. The man I know used to be an outer disciple, and he became a grunt disciple after he got some mental problems," the young woman said coldly.     
"Yes! It's said that Austin was degraded to a grunt disciple from an outer disciple. So you know him too?"    

Denali cried out.    

 "Of course, I do! He used to rank first among tens of thousands of outer disciples, so everyone knew him. I used to admire him, too," the young woman continued.     

Denali was a little surprised because she never expected that Austin used to be such a powerful and known man.    

 Thinking of how amazing Austin had been, the young woman lost in her thoughts.     

"However, it's said that he suddenly went crazy. How did he save you? Does it mean he's pretending to be crazy? But why has he played a fool and let everybody bully him for three years?   

He must have been planning something big. Otherwise, he wouldn't have endured so many humiliations! Denali, I know he saved you and you owe him your life. But whatever happens, do not contact him again! He can be a scheming person," the young woman reminded.     

"He might have his own reasons. We didn't do anything to him before, so I think he won't do anything to harm us. 

Don't you think so?"    

Denali asked cautiously. The young woman was her cousin, and Denali had always respected and feared her cousin since she was a child, and she seldom disobeyed her wishes.     

In spite of that, it was hard for her to consider Austin as an evil man after he had saved her.   

"Denali, you're naive and you can't understand how dangerous people can be. Since your dad entrusted me to take care of you, I'm responsible for your safety. Just do as I told you!" the young woman said coldly, seemingly a little annoyed.     

Denali dared not to protest her again. "I understand," she answered in a low voice.    

 "Let's stop talking about him, shall we? I might attend the Five Sects Competition in the next two years on behalf of our sect, so I need time to practice. You should also try your best to improve your cultivation level in vital energy. That's the most important thing," the woman added.    

 "I will do my best!" Denali answered obediently.     

When Denali heard that her cousin would attend the Five Sects Competition on behalf of their sect, she couldn't help admiring her.   

Those who were qualified to attend the competition were the best disciples in their sects. Being qualified meant that they could get more resources and training opportunities than those average disciples.     

The young woman seemed very satisfied with Denali's obedience. She took out a bag of vital energy crystals and two magic pills and then gave them to Denali.    

 "I had a hard time getting the Energy-boosting Elixirs from my master. They are very useful, so don't waste them."    When Denali heard that these magic pills were Energy-boosting Elixirs, she got extremely excited.    

 The Energy-boosting Elixir would be helpful to the cultivators at Energy Gathering Realm for improving their competence. Denali was confident that with these two magic pills, she would break through soon.    

Meanwhile, on the bank of the Clearing Lake...   

"Achoo! Achoo!"


Austin sneezed several times.     

"Tin, sneezing means someone is missing you or talking about you."    "Nonsense!"    

Austin protested with his lips twitched.    

The sun shone beautifully, and the sunlight scattered on the grassland not far away from the Clearing Lake. Austin and Evan lay side by side on the grassland.   

  With a piece of grass in his mouth, Austin looked at the white clouds forming different shapes on the pure blue sky above them.     

"Evan, I'm going to practice in the Beast Mountain."   

 Austin firmly said.   

"The Beast Mountain? Tin, you'd better think twice. It's said the Beast Mountain is a very dangerous place. Many outer disciples of Sun Sect had died there in the previous years."    

Evan was genuinely worried. The Beast Mountain was well-known for being dangerous among the lower-rank disciples.    

 "I don't care. If there's no risk, there's no gain. I know that the Beast Mountain is dangerous, but it will be quite helpful for my cultivation. I'm sure I would improve much faster there than if I stay here."

  When Austin was an outer disciple before, he had gone to the Beast Mountain several times for practicing cultivation, so he was familiar with it. 

That was why he was confident that he would be safe on the mountain.    

 "However, only outer disciples or higher-ranked disciples could go to the Beast Mountain for cultivation. If a grunt disciple wants to go there, he must ask his supervisor for approval first," Evan said, with a confused look. 

The chance was slim for a grunt disciple's application for cultivation on the Beast Mountain to be approved.   

After all, with the competence of the Sun Sect grunt disciples, almost none of them could survive the Beast Mountain.     
Given the situation, Sun Sect wouldn't allow the grunt disciples to cultivate on the Beast Mountain unless they got approval from their supervisors.     

"Don't forget that money talks! Trust me, my application would be approved."    

Austin looked quite confident.     

The Grunt Disciple Administration Hall was the place where the supervisors of the grunt disciples worked. It had many rooms, each assigned to a supervisor.  

   A chubby supervisor with a big belly named Farry was sitting in one of the rooms.   

He was known as the 'Exploiter' among the grunt disciples under his administration.    

 Farry was greedy and had tried all his efforts to exploit the grunt disciples who were under his administration.  

 Furthermore, he acted like the big boss. All the grunt disciples were forced to follow his orders even if the orders were unreasonable at times.     

In the room, a female grunt disciple with heavy make-up and a plump figure was serving him.     

He was upset in the past days because a grunt disciple named Austin had got into trouble.     

There were several thousands of grunt disciples in Sun Sect, so generally, no one would care whether a grunt disciple lived or died.     

And a grunt disciple with a mental problem like Austin was of little importance.
