Fifth young miss Is A Scourge - Chapter 3
“Sigh” a small sigh escaped her lips as she sat down in lotus position. Thanks to the original Huo Ran’s memories, when she tried absorbing the water element, it was done smoothly.
According to Huo Ran’s memories, there are three levels of cultivation. Qi gathering apprentice are level one to nine, once you breakthrough, you would enter Qi gathering master and there are one to five levels. Above that was Qi gathering grandmaster with levels one to three.
Another breakthrough and one would ascend to the higher realm, but for hundreds of years, no one had been heard to have ascended yet.
There are also four types of basic elements: earth, fire, wind and water. Huo Ran belonged to the most gentle element; water, so it’s really beneficial for her to cultivate next to a water source.
Cultivators are not rare but one would only be able to obtain one’s element is to cultivate to Qi gathering apprentice level three are definitely few.
Currently, Huo Ran is at Qi gathering apprentice level 5, which is not bad for the age of 15. Regardless though, she was still called no. 1 trash in the empire.
People are simply narrow minded, she is who she is and her father is her father. So what if her father is more talented than her at his youth, she is still stronger than 60% of their empire’s population!
Next time she sees people calling her trash, she would beat them up and see who’s trash!
She tried to calm her mind and circulated her energy in her body until she felt a bit better. When she opened her eyes, the skies had already turned dark, it’s dangerous to venture more now that it’s dark, beasts would probably be looking for food now.
Circulating energy actually helps her heal herself, most of her skin injuries are healed…her face though… do they have to be so ruthless on a “dead” person?!?
She can move more swiftly now, she didn’t follow the river but turned left instead till she saw stone walls. She didn’t like the feeling of being surrounded by trees, who knows, someone might sneak behind her.
She rested against a stone wall, although it was cold, she didn’t dare to light a fire in a forest with beasts whose strength is unknown. She can only sleep sitting against the wall while thinking, she suffered too much hardship just by being here today!
She fell asleep thinking of ways to get revenge not only on original Huo Ran’s behalf, but also revenge for herself for this hardship. The current Huo Ran isn’t afraid of hardship, but that doesn’t mean she’s willing to bear it.
The next day, Huo Ran didn’t wander aimlessly. Since in the middle of the forest were mountains, that means going further means the soil will be high, she has higher chances of finding civilization as long as she follows the flow of the river.
When she heard a rustle from the bushes, she immediately went on guard. Although she hadn’t met any beast, it doesn’t mean there isn’t any. The forest isn’t called demonic beast forest for nothing.
Before she could react, a fully grown white rabbit merged from the bushes. It was cute. It has red eyes and horns that’s similar to a deer.
The two stared at each other for a while. It seems it was unafraid as it fearlessly hopped towards her.
Huo Ran was surprised. She avoided the rabbit who was hopping by her feet, it wasn’t fast but it wasn’t slow either.
She tried not to drool looking at the hopping “food”. She hadn’t eaten for two days, unfortunately, she didn’t have a knife nor anything sharp to chop the rabbit.
“Alright that’s enough playing” Huo Ran picked up the rabbit and hugged it. Although she couldn’t eat it, it can become her friend in her journey.
The rabbit was stunned, the rabbit is actually a level 7 demonic beast. It was equivalent to someone who’s at Qi gathering master level 2!
It uses its appearance to bait its enemies then kill them!
Also the reason why there aren’t any beasts around, the reason was because of the rabbit she was comfortably hugging!
She smiled happily at it, “let’s go! Come with me and I won’t treat you unfairly.” Regardless of whether the rabbit’s willing or unwilling, she bought it with her!
The rabbit opened its mouth and was about to bite her arm, the naive Huo Ran who found an apple tree, shoved an apple to its open mouth.
The rabbit was surprised and found the apple sweet. It thought- “forget it, this apple is sweet. I’ll let her off this time”
Source of food was rare, so Huo Ran took as much as she could from the trees before departing.
During the day, she would walk and during the night, she would cultivate. For some reason whenever she cultivates, even if she doesn’t sleep, she would be energized the next morning.
It was strange but at the same time, fascinating. She was still oblivious about the fact that the rabbit would protect her in the middle of the night.
Soon, her face was healed and three days had already passed. She finally found signs of humans.
