Becoming God With Spirits - Chapter 59
Zhou Kai, who didn’t care about the little evil spirit’s distorted, ugly expression at all, gave the photo to Mi Xue and said, “The two of you stay here and rest well. I’ll go over with this little guy. Remember, if I’m not back by dawn, burn this photo.”
Upon hearing that, the little evil spirit, who had lingering evil intent and wanted to say something, froze immediately.
F*ck! Why is there such a shameless person on earth?
Mi Xue was a little worried. “Brother, isn’t it too dangerous for you to go alone? Why don’t we notify the branch and do it together?”
Zhou Kai laughed. “They obviously don’t want us to join them. Why treat them nicely when they’re going to give us the cold shoulder? You guys don’t have to worry about my safety. I won’t do something I’m not confident about.”
Xu Lei, who was very confident in Zhou Kai, said, “Brother, pay attention to your safety. Mi Xue and I will wait for your return. If you’re not back by dawn, we’ll definitely burn the photo.”
Xu Lei cast a glance at the little evil spirit, threatening it with his gaze not to cause any trouble.
The little evil spirit looked at him coldly.
What are you looking at?
“Alright then. I’m leaving.”
Zhou Kai pulled out his long saber and took it with him.
The little evil spirit followed him, feeling sullen yet helpless.
Its situation was very simple. It had yet to break free from the control of the curse but it had the protection of his parents’ spirits. When it lost their protection, it would become one of countless sunken evil spirits that had lost their wisdom under the control of the curse.
Anything with any wisdom wouldn’t want to become a puppet that couldn’t be reincarnated and would be under someone’s control even if they died.
However, being threatened was also a form of humiliation!
B*stard, just you wait. If I don’t kill you and render you unable to be reincarnated, I won’t be called Chen Pi anymore.
After going out, Zhou Kai put away the little evil spirit full of malicious thoughts. He then left the village and headed straight to the back of the mountain.
It was brightly lit along the way, and there was a team of armed soldiers on patrol.
Zhou Kai took out his token and passed through three checkpoints before reaching the foot of the mountain.
A figure then stopped Zhou Kai.
“You’re from the Anyang branch, you’re not trained in magic, and you practice martial arts. You even have an evil spirit with you. Are you cultivating a little spirit? You’re using unpromising evil magic. Has the Kuidou lineage currently fallen to this level?”
Without needing Zhou Kai to say a word, this person had seen through him.
Zhou Kai wasn’t surprised. He looked at the other person and realized it was a woman.
Her long hair was twined up and hanging down to her waist, and she was wearing a white ancient dress that accentuated her slender figure.
The lady, who seemed to be young and pretty, gave off the feeling that she had been through a lot, especially when one looked at her eyes. They were unfathomable and they seemed to see through everything.
After sizing her up, Zhou Kai said calmly, “Don’t they have the right to survey the ground fissure anyway?”
The woman looked deeply at Zhou Kai and grinned a few moments later. “There is no such rule. The participants of the mission can enter at will. However, are you sure you want to go? Negative energy and evil spirits are lurking in the ground fissure. Even an expert with 20 years’ worth of skills wouldn’t dare to enter alone. You’d throw away your life for the sake of merit?”
Zhou Kai answered seriously, “Since I’m here, I can’t let you make me retreat by scaring me off. I currently represent the Anyang branch.”
The woman nodded. “Your courage is commendable. Go ahead then. For the sake of the chief, I can give you a small reminder. The Earth Dragon frees itself, trees are extinct in the southeast, and the Yin Dragon will be in the northwest. Turn back when you encounter water… Ugh…”
Before the woman could finish her words, Zhou Kai strode past her. She was advising him as a senior, so she was instantly stunned.
As she watched Zhou Kai disappear into the forest, the woman was speechless before she smiled. “After being here for two days, I’ve finally met an interesting newbie. His fate seems normal, and he will not face any calamities. He will be safe this time.”
Meanwhile, Zhou Kai walked with big strides and ignored the bragging woman behind him.
She’s talking about a load of crap! Southeast and northwest? I don’t understand anything she said!
I don’t like people who babble nonsense. Who is she trying to fool?
I have the protection of Big Boss Ding-Dong and I’m not afraid of evil anomalies. Turn back at the sight of water? I’ve encountered water and jumped down to have a bath before. Would you believe that?
After crossing the mountain top, Zhou Kai released the little evil spirit and said, “Lead the way.”
The little evil spirit didn’t say a word and turned around to lead the way. However, when its back faced Zhou Kai, its expression turned crazy and malevolent.
After over half an hour of journey, Zhou Kai saw a canyon.
It was a huge crevice in the reclining mountain. Nobody knew how long it was at night, but one could see twists and turns and the cliff was dark and steep.
“This is the mouth of the cliff. There was a deep valley here in the past. Some time ago, when the villagers jumped in, it became wider,” the little evil spirit calmly told him as it looked at Zhou Kai when it got there and stopped.
Zhou Kai looked down. Well, it’s so deep that I can’t see the bottom. Nobody would survive a jump down there.
“Don’t tell me that jumping down is my only choice if I want to go down?” Zhou Kai looked at the little evil spirit.
The little evil spirit replied, “People used to climb down with ropes to explore, but I’ve never seen one do it. After I died, Xu Sanqiang threw my corpse down. The villagers also jumped down from this place.”
Zhou Kai said, “I got it. Let’s go back.”
He then turned to leave.
The little evil spirit was stunned. “You’re not going down?”
Without turning his head around, Zhou Kai answered, “I’m not going down. I’m going back to burn the photo.”
Little evil spirit: [○・`Д́・○]
“I remember now. There’s another way down.” The little evil spirit quickly went forward to stop Zhou Kai, feeling very sullen.
Zhou Kai laughed. “Can you be more careful? Has the evil intent devoured your brain? Your photo is in the hands of my people, yet you’re talking nonsense and refusing to cooperate with me? Do you think you can escape this way?”
The little evil spirit was silent.
As an evil spirit that the curse had forcibly transformed, it could maintain its wisdom for various reasons.
However, an evil spirit was an evil spirit. Its main focus was evil intent. With the slightest evil thought, it wouldn’t be able to get out of it. This was what an anomaly was.
“This was a warning. From now on, you will behave yourself. If there’s something I am not satisfied with again, you’ll be deemed useless. You know what happens to useless things,” Zhou Kai said coldly, his words full of threat.
Sensing Zhou Kai’s evil intent, the little evil spirit’s body curled up with evil intent hidden in its heart.
“Let’s go. We shouldn’t waste time,” Zhou Kai, who didn’t want to say anything else, instructed.
The little evil spirit quickly turned around and continued to walk.
After they turned around the mountain top, a steep slope appeared before them. Although it seemed dangerous, it was much better than the cliff. At the very least, they could go down that slope.
Zhou Kai held his saber in one hand and grabbed the little evil spirit with the other one. His figure plundered and went down the slope in a half-slanted manner.
The Eight Forms of Violent Battle contained the technique of forest battle, which included walking in the dangerous terrain of a mountain.
Even though Zhou Kai had never practiced it before, he walked over with familiar footsteps. His figure nimbly went down to the bottom of the canyon with the aid of pieces of protruding objects.
When he landed but had yet to stand properly, the Ding-Dong sound was heard.
