Episode 30

(The girl who ran)

Austin's guess was correct. The scene just now was being replayed several times in her mind. It was not the first time she had seen murder, but it was the first time for her to witness such a bloody and cruel scene. Therefore, she could not calm down in a moment and needed some time to regain her consciousness.

Seeing Austin's glance at her, she felt her heart almost stop beating and a terrified look came back to her face once more.

Only at this moment did she understand what kind of person she had dragged into her troubles now. Maybe the words 'murder maniac' could best describe him now!

'Has she been scared out of her wits?' Austin frowned slightly. He used the Wind-commanding Skill and with a single jump, moved to the young girl's side in just a few seconds.

The young girl walked backwards to keep away from Austin. Her long eyelashes kept shaking as if she was seeing the ultimate definition of fear.

"Don't kill me, please! I beg you!" Seeing her pitiful and frightened expression, Austin smiled secretly in his heart, 'What a scared little rabbit!'

"Why did you frame me up just now? Tell me! Be quick!"

Austin intended to scare her, and asked her fiercely, showing an angry look on his face.

"I...... I...... I did not do that on purpose. I don't want to die! You...... Please don't kill me! Wahhhh...…"

The young girl suddenly started crying loudly in fear. Seeing her weeping so loud, Austin squinted his eyes and felt speechless.

'What the hell did this girl mean by shedding tears? She was a big girl now, why was she crying without a reason?'

"That's fine. Now please don't cry. I was kidding just now!" Austin tried to comfort her but did not meet much success.

"Look at me! Do you think I am such a bad person! I won't kill you!" Austin tried his best to gently say these words but the young girl did not stop crying. Austin looked around and tried to say other things to calm her down. However, besides saying 'don't cry', he did not know what else he could say.

He felt like he was coaxing a little kid of four or five years old.

The girl kept on crying for a long time before she finally stopped.

"Are you serious? You won't kill me, right?" She sobbed.

"Yes, of course. I won't kill you. I am not a random murderer or a serial killer."

Austin shrugged his shoulders and started to examine the wound on her neck.

"There's a cut on your neck. Are you feeling well?"

The girl forced a smile and replied, "That's all right. I have healing drugs my grandfather prepared for me. Once smeared on the cut, the wound would be healed soon, and it won't leave any scar." Then, she pulled out a small jade bottle about the size of her thumb from her pockets and unscrewed the lid.

Immediately a refreshing fragrance of some medicine drifted away into the air.
The young girl took out a little bit of some green ointment from the jade bottle with her fingernails and put it on the injury she had sustained. Soon, the cut from the sword was stuttering away at a rate which was fast enough to be visible to the naked eye.

And then it vanished totally within half a minute. It disappeared without any trace at all and her skin turned back to its previous state.

"Wow, what an amazing drug! The effect is really impressive!" Austin marveled.

"Of course. An alchemist sent this to my grandfather when he came to ask him to create an array."

The girl's face lit up with pride.

"Your grandfather can set up an array?" Austin asked curiously and in amazement.

Generally speaking, only array experts could form an array. Therefore, these array experts, pill refiners, and weapon refiners were considered as the noblest professionals and received a high social status in the world.

In the world of martial artists, the status of such array masters was not lower than most supreme warriors with extremely high cultivation bases.

"Yes, and the arrays my grandfather made are very powerful! If I had not lost the defensive array flags my grandfather had given me, I would never have been afraid of those people!"

'It seems that the young girl's grandfather is a very good array expert.' Austin thought to himself.

"Then, where is your grandfather? Why isn't he with you? What are you doing out here alone? Besides, did you really steal something from those people? If not, why did they chase you so hard just now?" Austin gushed forth several questions at once. Even though the young girl looked innocent, he wanted to know the root cause behind her problems to understand what had happened. Besides, he had killed so many people just now and he did not want to have done that for no reason.

"Err, that is a long story," The young girl sighed and told him, "My grandfather is amazing in all aspects. There is just one thing that I do not agree with him. He always keeps me under his strict control and does not let me leave home. I have never been to the outer world ever since I was born. Therefore, I am really interested in seeing the world with my own eyes without any restrictions.

A month ago, when my grandfather was cultivating in seclusion to study a set of incomplete arrays, I secretly ran out of home. I had heard that there were several fierce monsters and beasts in the Grand Desolation Mountain. It sounded very interesting when I heard it, so I came here.

However, I lost all my money and other packages, including some defensive array flags my grandfather had given to me. Everything was lost.

But I still needed food and clothing and any accommodation and transportation I needed also required money. So, when I came across those people bathing in the lake, I stole all of their money. They did not look like good people anyway. However, they discovered the theft midway and gave chase." The young girl explained all the details as if Austin was a big brother to her.

Austin felt speechless again after hearing this young girl's story. To his surprise, this young girl was just a naughty girl running away from home.

He carefully looked at her, only to find that the girl had a fresh and firm skin and her dressing sense was also very good. In fact, were it not for the blood, her clothes would have been luxurious.

Although she looked smart and lovely, she also had a unique and noble temperament, which only existed in young ladies from big families.

It wouldn't have been wrong to say that besides her outstanding array expert grandfather, the girl must have come from an extraordinary family.

Alas! This little girl must have been spoon-fed ever since she was born. She was also very bold to run away from home like that and wander around alone. What was more, how had she been daring enough to come to this dangerous Grand Desolation Mountain?
Austin had found at the very beginning that the girl's cultivation base was seventh level of Energy Gathering Realm.

Such vital energy and cultivation base, together with her scanty experience of the outer world clearly said that it was very dangerous for her to be traveling around the outer areas of Grand Desolation Mountain.
