Duo Ji was still somewhat lacking in terms of acc.u.mulation, and he did not have enough high quality herbs. Thus, it wouldn’t be that easy for him to enter the Heaven Battling Realm. In fact, just reaching peak Soul Foundation Realm was a result of his hard work. His severed arm had also affected his overall strength, and he had been feeling for a while that reaching the Heaven Battling Realm would be impossible.
The world was filled with countless cultivators, and those capable of entering the Heaven Battling Realm were usually geniuses among geniuses. On top of talent, great luck was also required. It was a common sight to see someone who was stuck at the Soul Foundation Realm until death.
Duo Ji had initially accepted that he would be stuck as well. However, the lifebone flower Xiang Shaoyun gave him let him see hope once again. Not only could the lifebone flower regrow his severed arm, but it could also reforge his bones and help him greatly in forging a set of saintly bones. Perhaps he could really step into the next realm.
Duo Ji did not stand on ceremony and accepted the lifebone flower from Xiang Shaoyun. He was going to find a silent place to absorb the lifebone flower. He couldn’t wait to regrow his arm.
“Old drunkard, wait.” Xiang Shaoyun stopped him before rus.h.i.+ng back into the hamlet. He brought out Guo Po.
Guo Po was completely confused as to what his master was trying to do.
“Guo Po, this is Grandpa Duo Ji. Look at him. He has a missing arm, right?” said Xiang Shaoyun as he pointed at Duo Ji.
Guo Po saluted Duo Ji before his gaze focused on the empty sleeve hanging from Duo Ji’s shoulder, confirming that the old man had a severed arm. Duo Ji did not understand what Xiang Shaoyun was trying to do, but he understood after hearing the subsequent words.
“And now, Grandpa Duo Ji is going to regrow his arm. Do you believe that?” asked Xiang Shaoyun.
“I-Is that true?” Guo Po asked in disbelief.
Instead of answering Guo Po, Xiang Shaoyun said, “Go, old drunkard. We will leave after Little Mu arrives. Try to make it fast.”
Duo Ji then left. Only then did Xiang Shaoyun answer, “Soon, you will see Grandpa Duo Ji with a new arm.”
He brought Guo Po back into the hamlet.
“Liuhui, look after Guo Po for me. I am leaving the hamlet for a few days. If Little Mu arrives, tell her to wait for me,” said Xiang Shaoyun.
“Where are you going, boss?” Xia Liuhui asked.
“I’m looking for Little White,” said Xiang Shaoyun. After telling Tuoba Wan’er and Gong Qinyin about him leaving, he left for the Hundred Beasts Mountain Range with Money, the turtle, and the toad.
Du Xuanhao and Han Pojun were all left behind. Xiang Shaoyun did not intend to bring them with him since having too many people with him might backfire. In fact, he was already thinking of going to the Hundred Beasts Mountain Range when they were at the Martial Hall Palace. However, he did not want to make Ye Chaomu wait. Now that he knew that Ye Chaomu hadn’t arrived yet, he had some time to go look for Little White.
It had been years since he had seen Little White, and he greatly missed his white tiger brother. Little White had probably become a powerful existence among the beasts. Back then when Xiang Shaoyun had first left for Bloodsin City, Little White had Jin Wo escort him. Subsequently, after Xiang Shaoyun joined the Dragon Phoenix Academy, he sent Jin Wo back to the Hundred Beasts Mountain Range.
Jin Wo had most likely returned to Little White. He wondered if Little White still remembered this human brother he once had.
The Hundred Beasts Mountain Range was covered in a lush forest. As the wind gently brushed past, the trees swayed about and their leaves rustled. It was a pleasant scene, as though the trees were welcoming the arrival of an honored guest.
But when one approached, sounds of beast roars would ring in the air, planting fear in one’s heart. Demonic beast hunters could be seen occasionally in the forest. While hunting for beasts, they also searched for any natural treasures they might find.
Xiang Shaoyun was a peak Emperor, and he was still constantly growing in strength. Thus, he no longer trembled in fear the moment he stepped foot in the outer perimeter of the Hundred Beasts Mountain Range.
Instead, he felt melancholic. He saw his self from once upon a time searching for the earth star spring within the Hundred Beasts Mountain Range. He also saw his first meeting with Little White and the times he had encountered numerous dangers in the mountain range. Everything felt like yesterday, and a warm feeling rose in his heart as he recalled everything.
Seated atop Money, Xiang Shaoyun brought the turtle and toad deep into the Hundred Beasts Mountain Range.
The turtle asked, “Young master, which clan’s territory is this? I can sense a powerful aura surrounding this place.”
The toad said, “This is definitely the territory of demonic beasts. Turtle, you’re getting too cowardly. With our strength, whatever clan that is here will need to show us respect.”
“What do you know? The true royalties are the strongest clans of the demonic beasts. If we enter their territory without permission, we would die horribly,” said the turtle solemnly. It was rare to see him so serious.
He was right. The demonic beasts placed great importance on territories. Anyone intruding upon their territories would receive a strong pushback.
“Um. This is probably the territory of the white tigers. You don’t have to worry. A brother of mine is a white tiger, so he will look after you,” said Xiang Shaoyun proudly.
The white tigers were one of the strongest demonic beast clans. In fact, a regular person would probably be honored just to get a chance to meet one. Thus, having a white tiger as his brother was definitely something worthy of pride.
“White tiger!” Both the turtle and the toad looked fearful the moment the white tigers were mentioned.
Although they were isolated from the rest of the world in the secret s.p.a.ce, one of the strong points of demonic beasts was their bloodline inheritance. The bloodline inheritance included the awakening of memories, allowing each beast to know the relations.h.i.+p between the various beasts. Thus, it was impossible that the two wouldn’t know about the white tigers.
As they went deeper into the forest, powerful Demon Kings and Demon Emperors started appearing. The Hundred Beasts Mountain Range received its name due to the sheer number of beasts in the area. The strongest of the beasts resided deep within the Hundred Beasts Mountain Range, and what Xiang Shaoyun was doing was essentially intruding upon their territory. Therefore, the beasts were naturally furious.
If it wasn’t for the two Demon Sovereigns by Xiang Shaoyun’s side, he would have already faced and suffered powerful attacks.
Roars rang in the air, and numerous pairs of ferocious eyes glared at the group as though the beasts were warning them with their glares. As the roars resounded, some movement finally came from the depths of the Hundred Beasts Mountain Range.
A Demon Sovereign tiger dashed out, followed by more than 10 Demon Emperors. These beasts were the elites of the Hundred Beasts Mountain Range, and they were here to face the intruders. Jin Wo was among them.
“Where are you from? You dare intrude upon our Hundred Beasts Mountain Range?” roared the leading tiger ferocious before he even arrived.
“Calm your anger, senior tiger. I am a friend of a tiger prince. Please pa.s.s on the message that Xiang Shaoyun is here,” said Xiang Shaoyun politely.
