Episode 13

(The price pay for eavesdropping)

Being one of the key disciples of Peripatetic Sect, Gilbert had awe-inspiring strength. Over the years, he also accumulated a substantial fortune from his prestigious status.     

He possessed a dozen of medium-grade spiritual weapons, one top-grade spiritual weapon, and a manual on a seventh-grade martial arts skill. Those items were certainly of great value.  

   "That seventh-grade martial arts skill is called Overlord Body-Refining Formula that can enhance the corporeal body. 

When a cultivator masters it, his or her body will be as strong as steel. And the cultivator's strength will be overwhelming, too.     

The first chapter of the Overlord Body-Refining Formula introduces a potion that a cultivator must make before he starts practicing this skill. The potion requires a wide range of ingredients. The cultivator should gather all the ingredients and boil them in water in a furnace, and then bathe in it.   

My elder brother was trying to collect those ingredients for many years. So far, he had found everything except for the sap of the vigor tree.    

 However, Scott poisoned my older brother and took away the manual of the Overlord Body-Refining Formula. Then, he came to this Grand Desolation Mountain with that bitch Barbara when he learned that there were some vigor trees growing here.     

That's why I brought the three of you here. I hope you can help me work out a plan to kill that Scott!     

Now that I've told you everything, it's up to you if you'd like to help me.    

 If you assist me, I will be more than willing to share those treasures with you. You can have three-fifths of them, while I take two-fifths.   

And I promise, after we kill Scott, you can have me as you like. What do you say?" 

   Upon hearing that tantalizing offer, the three men were suddenly intrigued. They could not help but lick their parched lips and measured up Lois's well-developed desirable figure.     

Then, Nigel shouted out of the blue. "Deal! Damn it! No pain, no gain. I'm not a guy who's afraid of getting into trouble. Whatever, you can count me in!"  

  Elton and Lyle both agreed. "Great then, it's settled!" exclaimed Lois.    

 After finally talking the three men into it, she was quite overjoyed.     

She then gave a broad smile, "Perfect! Now, let's waste no time. We'd better set off for that area with vigor trees at once!"  

Elton, the one who had the least control over his lust, suddenly grabbed Lois's plump buttocks and breathed, "Sugar, seeing you swing your cute butt like that makes me want to take you right here, right now."    

He grinned obscenely.     

"Now is not the time. We have a real business to do. When I get my revenge, you can do anything to me as you like."    As they flirted, they walked their way to kill Scott and Barbara as Lois planned.     

When Austin thought that the group was already gone, he finally decided to slide off from the huge tree.    

 "Bastard! Do you really think we didn't notice you were eavesdropping?"    

With a gale of laughter, the four who Austin thought were gone came back in a flash and cornered Austin.     

'What the fuck? How did they notice me?' Austin complained to himself.   

Austin complained to himself.     

He now started to believe that the group was extraordinary cultivators at Earth Realm.     

The four who made an unexpected return immediately drew out their weapons and surrounded Austin. Their vital energies were surging and ready to burst out at any moment now. Their killing intent also targeted Austin.   

  Being besieged by the four powerful warriors at the Earth Realm, Austin felt his breathing became heavier.     

He was helpless sensing the absolute gap between their strength levels. There was no chance that he could escape his death this time.    

 'So, should I just surrender?' Austin started to consider.     

He was sure that they would kill him because he heard their murdering plan.

   'No, I will not surrender. No matter what, I will take my chances! Let them try!'    

At that moment, Austin could think of nothing but that thought. He mustered all his vital energy and wrapped it around him while his eyes were gleaming, trying to find the most suited way out.    

 As Lois and the other three men saw Austin activated his vital energy, their tense faces instantly relaxed.     

Nigel even withdrew his weapon and let out a sneer.     

"This punk turned out to be just a seventh-level moron. What a false alarm!"    

Lois also covered her mouth and sniggered.     

"He is just a kid," she commented.    

 Meanwhile, Austin looked around searching for a weak spot in their besiege. However, as they surrounded him, their vital energy formed invisible walls that he could not break.   

Under a desperate circumstance, Austin was starting to hope he could beg for a quick death. This negative mindset was a result of the huge difference between their cultivation bases.     

When confronted by one practitioner at the Earth Realm, Austin might be able to put up a good fight.    

 But now there were four of them, and three of them were already at the medium stage of the Earth Realm, it would be quite a challenge for him. He was merely at the seventh level of the Energy Gathering Realm and obviously a no match for them. His strength was a far cry from theirs.    

 Therefore, he felt rather hopeless when they caught him.    

 After discovering Austin's level, Nigel's and Elton's looks were a mix of disdain, contempt, and cruelty.   

Nigel then spoke with a jeer, "I wonder which sect this kid is in. Perhaps he needs his head examined. Otherwise, how come he came to the region full of third-level diabolic beasts. We have serious business today. Let's finish him off and get this over with now!"   

 Lois and Lyle both let out a giggle and nodded.     

Then, Lois grinned at Austin showing her shining teeth before murmuring in a soft tone, "Poor little kid, you don't give us a choice. You heard things you should never have heard. If you have any last words to say, just tell me... But I can't promise to make your last wish come true!"   

 "You bitch!" Austin cursed, forcing himself to calm down.    

 Despite the striking disparity in strength, he would not place himself at the mercy of his opponents.     

Taking advantage of the moment that they relaxed their vigilance to taunt him, Austin leaped up and cast his Wind-commanding Skill. As if possessed by the God of Wind, he crossed ten meters with one step and easily skimmed past the four like a streak of smoke.   

"What just happened?"    

"How can he be so fast?"  

  When the four saw Austin's astonishingly brisk movements, they were all taken aback and could not help but exclaim with surprise.    

 However, just as Austin slipped through the gap between two opponents and was about to break through the blockade, something unexpected happened.    

 "Ghost Shadow Rope!"    

Nigel abruptly gave a howl before making a quick grab on Austin. 

Simultaneously, a set of menacing yellow vital energy shot out from his palm. It instantly turned into a long rope and twined around Austin's feet.   

All at once, Austin's ankles were reined tightly by a powerful force. He was trapped like a helpless swimmer who got entangled by water plants.    

 'Vital energy materialization?" Austin gasped.     

UWhen a cultivator reached the Earth Realm, his vital energy could leave the body and attack. Varied combat techniques came with vital energy in different shapes.    

 By comparison, a warrior at the Energy Gathering Realm could never separate his vital energy from his body. The most he could manage was to attach the vital energy to his weapons.   

  Hence, the ability to separate and substantialize the vital energy was the symbol of cultivators at the Earth Realm.   

  "Planning to escape? How could you a silly kid at the Energy Gathering Realm escape the four Earth Realm warriors just like that?"  

Nigel snorted, feeling quite smug about their power.     

"Get back!"    

With a flick, that vital energy string controlled by Nigel hauled Austin back. 

Austin fell heavily onto the ground. He was rather woolly-headed, and his vital energy also became disordered by the sudden change.
