The Black Water Gutter was the dirtiest and most chaotic area of Windmill Town. Beggars, vagrants, thieves, and wanted criminals were all hiding here. The government repeatedly wanted to settle this place and give Windmill Town peace.
However, every time after clearing the Black Water Gutter, it would not be long before the place was filled with residents again.
Unless the government could exterminate the beggars, vagrants, thieves, and other shady professions, the Black Water Gutter would only reappear again and again.
In the end, the government gave up on managing the Black Water Gutter and let the people inside run their own course.
After Lu Yu walked into the Black Water Gutter, he subconsciously held his breath and walked carefully, afraid that he would step on some unknown object.
The deeper he went, the more dilapidated the buildings became. There were only a few dilapidated walls at the back.
From time to time, he could see homeless people huddled under the dilapidated walls. During the day, they could use the dilapidated walls to block the scorching sun, and at night, they could also use the dilapidated walls to block the cold night wind.
Many homeless people chose to stay here because they could find food here.
All the rubbish in the town was thrown into the Black Water Gutter. Gradually, the Black Water Gutter turned into a garbage dump. They could find some food and clothing here and barely survive.
After entering the Black Water Gutter, Lu Yu quickened his steps. The person following behind him also quickened his steps.
Lu Yu walked around the complicated shacks and dilapidated houses. Soon, he shook off the person behind him and hid. Next, he only needed to observe the stalker in clean clothes in the Black Water Gutter and determined which fraction was the stalker belonged to.
The stalker was particularly eye-catching in the Black Water Gutter. Although he was wearing normal clothes, that was still the most eye-catching outfit in the Black Water Gutter.
After searching for a few times, the stalker still couldn’t find Lu Yu. After the stalker left the Black Water Gutter, Lu Yu secretly followed him and found that the stalker was actually from the Divine Weapon Pavilion.
“You lost him?” the Divine Weapon Pavilion shopkeeper looked at his subordinate and frowned.
He had already reported Lu Yu’s information to the headquarter, and the next thing he needed to do was to wait for the headquarters’ response.
Recently, Windmill Town had not been peaceful, and there had been conflicts between the underground gangs and the Han Residence. However, Lu Yu was a member of the Han Residence. The Divine Weapon Pavilion shopkeeper had sent people to follow and protect Lu Yu, so that he could protect him in the name of the Divine Weapon Pavilion at a critical moment.
Although the Divine Weapon Pavilion had a high status in the entire Great Zhou Empire, they didn’t have much influence in a small place like Windmill Town.
Windmill Town was too remote, and it was not an important place. It could not receive the attention of the higher-ups, so the Divine Weapon Pavilion’s influence here was very weak. The strongest person here was the shopkeeper himself.
If he were to get involved in this matter, he could not protect himself and Lu Yu at the same time, unless he used the name of the Divine Weapon Pavilion.
“Sigh, off you go! We won’t get involved in this matter. The rest will depend on Lu Yu’s luck.” The Divine Weapon Pavilion’s shopkeeper sighed helplessly. The higher-ups hadn’t given a reply yet, so he couldn’t interfere casually.
Lu Yu discovered that the stalker was the Divine Weapon Pavilion’s employee. After the stalker returned to the Divine Weapon Pavilion, he stayed on the first floor to receive customers and didn’t have any intention of following Lu Yu.
After observing for a while, Lu Yu was very puzzled, “What did the Divine Weapon Pavilion’s shopkeeper want? Did he give up?”
Lu Yu always felt that there was something wrong. As he walked, he thought about it. Even when he returned to the Ji Min Hall, he still couldn’t figure out what exactly was wrong.
After returning to the small courtyard, he cultivated the Fierce Tiger Fist Style in AFK mode. This question had always been on his mind.
During lunch, Lu Yu was surprised to find two roasted chickens on the table. They looked like they had just been roasted.
He looked at Little Tail, who still had traces of smoke on her face, and asked, “You roasted them?”
“Yes.” Little Tail nodded slightly. She looked at Lu Yu as if she was waiting for his evaluation.
Lu Yu tore off a drumstick, took a few bites, and said, “The taste is a little bland. Put more chili next time.”
Little Tail quickly wrote it down and prepared to put more chili next time she roasted the chicken.
Looking at Little Tail, Lu Yu said, “You like to cook. Do you want me to find a cooking teacher for you? You can be a chef in the future.”
Lu Yu was making plans for Little Tail’s future. If she were to leave him, she would need to have a skill to live a better life.
Although Lu Yu knew how to cook, it was better to leave the teaching of cooking to a professional.
Suddenly, Lu Yu was stunned. He put down the chopsticks in his hand. A professional? A professional… he felt like he had caught the key.
Little Tail saw that Lu Yu suddenly stopped eating and was at a loss. Was the chicken she had roasted not delicious?
Lu Yu walked around the courtyard and unknowingly arrived at the entrance of the Ji Min Hall. When he raised his head, he saw the inconspicuous entrance of the alley opposite him.
The scenes of him discovering the stalker twice was constantly being compared in Lu Yu’s mind. He had a stronger feeling that something was not right.
Suddenly, the image in his mind locked onto the blurry figure in the dark alley back then.
Professional! This word flashed through Lu Yu’s mind like a bolt of lightning that split the darkness. He understood what he felt was wrong.
The first time, he discovered the stalker accidentally. Moreover, the moment he found out the stalker, the stalker had disappeared.
Today, he could clearly sense the presence of the stalker in the crowd. It was obvious that the stalker he met today had a bad stalking skill. He could even sense that the stalker was following him.
In fact, when Lu Yu saw the person for the first time, he was not even sure if the person was watching him. Perhaps it was just an ordinary person who was passing by. This meant that person’s surveillance skills were very good. It would not attract his attention. It was impossible for him to be easily discovered like today.
When Lu Yu thought of this, he felt a chill down his spine. What was going on? Who was the one spying on him?
When he looked outside, he felt that there were eyes staring at him everywhere. Lu Yu shook his head vigorously and patted his head. He was a little paranoid.
However, he could now confirm that other than the Divine Weapon Pavilion, there was another group of people spying on him.
Thinking of what happened last night, Lu Yu suspected that the Wild Wolf Sect was watching him.
If there was no one watching him, how would the Wild Wolf Sect know which room Han Yu was in?
Realizing that the Wild Wolf Sect was watching him, Lu Yu felt a sense of danger. The chief of the Wild Wolf Sect was a qi cultivating realm martial art cultivator. With his current strength, he was definitely not a match for them.
Moreover, he had already used his Hundred Forged Greatsword to strengthen it, so he had temporarily lost his trump card. If he were to be attacked by the members of the Wild Wolf Sect at this time, the consequences would be unimaginable.
With his strength, it would be no problem for him to deal with a martial art cultivator at the fifth level of the body refining realm, but it would be a little difficult for him to deal with a martial art cultivator at the sixth level.
If Lu Yu had the Hundred Forged Greatsword in his hand, he would even dare to fight the opponent who was at the seventh level of the body refining realm.
Therefore, Lu Yu decided to first avoid the limelight and hide.
“My strength is still too weak!” Lu Yu sighed. He went back to the courtyard and called Little Tail. He planned to bring all the stuff and leave Windmill Town.
When he didn’t have any trump card in his hand, he always felt a little flustered. After the Hundred Forged Greatsword was strengthened, he would return to Windmill Town by himself!
After taking some marching balls from the shopkeeper of the Ji Min Hall, he brought Little Tail and quietly left Windmill Town. He told the shopkeeper that he was going out to look for traces of the Wild Wolf Gang.
He found an abandoned house in the mountains and stayed there temporarily. Lu Yu had found this place when he was looking for wild beasts. There was a river not far away, so he would not have any problems living there in the short term.
After letting Little Tail tidy up the house, Lu Yu made good use of his time to cultivate. He planned to cultivate all the moves of the Fierce Tiger Fist Style to the highest level. In this way, he had the confidence to deal with a martial art cultivator at the sixth level of the body refining realm.
He treated the trees in the forest as an imaginary enemy and practiced the Fierce Tiger Fist Style. The terrain in the forest was uneven, and there were many obstacles, which further promoted the changeability of the fist technique and improved his ability to adapt to sudden changes.
The experience bar of the moves increased at a fast speed. It would not be long before the Fierce Tiger Style could reach the ‘perfected’ level.
While he was cultivating, Lu Yu caught a few wild rabbits and cooked them as food for Little Tail. He also cut the broken trees with a knife to plug the air leakage in the house.
Around the house, he hung the cheap bells on the surrounding trees with strings as a warning.
Although Lu Yu did not think that the people who were spying on him could track him here, it did not stop him from doing a good job of guarding the area around his residence.
One reason why he brought Little Tail out was because he was afraid that the Wild Wolf Sect would attack her and force him to show himself. He would not leave such burden behind.
Another reason was to let Little Tail help him with his daily chores, such as washing clothes and cooking.
This was also to train Little Tail’s ability. The more she knew, the easier it would be for her to find a job. This was how Lu Yu persuaded himself to bring Little Tail.
After several days of hard work, Lu Yu finally cultivated Fierce Tiger Fist Style to ‘perfected’ level. His every move was filled with the aura of a fierce tiger.
After reaching the peak of the Fierce Tiger Fist Style, Lu Yu could intimidate the wild rabbit with just a look, making it highly nervous. All the muscles in its body were tense, and its body was stiff and unable to move.
However, Lu Yu found that the wild rabbit that was paralyzed by his stare didn’t taste good. So, when he was catching the rabbit, he still used his hands to catch it instead of staring at it.
After breaking through, Lu Yu consolidated his realm in the forest for half a day, ensuring that he could perform the Fierce Tiger Fist Style at ‘perfected’ level.
When he felt that it was about time, Lu Yu went to look for Little Tail and prepared to return to Windmill Town to see if his Hundred Forged Greatsword had been strengthened.
He could not find Little Tail in the wooden house, so he walked towards the river.
Little Tail was not in the wooden house. She must had gone to fill water.
After taking a few steps, he saw Little Tail stumbling towards her. She looked very panicked and even threw away the jar that was used to hold water.
“There’s someone… The Wild Wolf Sect…” she ran too fast and was too nervous. She suddenly stuttered and only managed to speak after a long time.
Lu Yu reacted quickly and asked, “The Wild Wolf Sect?”
Little Tail nodded vigorously and pointed towards the river.
“Don’t talk. Wait for me in the house. I’ll go and take a look.” After Lu Yu said that, he walked towards the river carefully.
The river was the only water source in this area. So, it was normal for the members of the Wild Wolf Sect appeared here if their lair was nearby.
Lu Yu did not expect that he would run into members of the Wild Wolf Sect in here. However, it was fortunate that his place was still a distance away from the river.

Not far from the river, Lu Yu saw two men using water sacs to fill water. There were quite a few water sacs. It seemed that they were the representatives sent by others to fill water.
“You go ahead and load some. I’m going to take a piss.”
One man suddenly put the water sacs on the ground and walked away while untying his belt.
The man who was still filling the water shouted, “Go further away. Don’t let us drink your piss!”
“Got it! I’ll drink the water here too.” As he said that, the man lifted the leaves in front of him and went into the forest..
