Xianxia: Started With 9999 Luck Value - Chapter 27
“As expected of an intermediate cultivator. However, you’re in the water now. Are you sure you can defeat me?!”
The large octopus on the other side also spoke.
Shiji was an intelligent magical beast and could speak.
Not every magical beast on this continent could speak.
Some powerful magical beasts did not have the intelligence and did not know how to use the common language of the continent.
“You haven’t answered my question just now, bastard!”
Zhang Yang’s gaze swept over Shiji one by one. He was looking for Hu Tao’s position.
“Are you looking for that little girl? Don’t worry, she’s not dead yet,” Shiji said with a smile.
When Zhang Yang and the others arrived at the shore, he had already noticed Zhang Yang.
Cultivators were one of the treasures of magical beasts. This was something that all intelligent magical beasts on the continent knew.
Zhang Yang’s strength was only that of a mid-level cultivator. Therefore, Shiji had some confidence in defeating Zhang Yang.
However, without 100% confidence, the intelligent demonic beasts would not dare to take the treasures of humans for themselves.
Just like the demons on the road to the west, Sun Wukong had not even caught them yet.
How could he dare touch this piece of Tang Sanzang’s flesh first?
“Since you know, then why don’t you hand over Hu Tao!”
Zhang Yang’s words were filled with an aura that could not be rejected.
Shiji seemed to be comparing Zhang Yang’s strength with his own, and for a moment, he did not dare to act rashly.
Just now, he had easily dragged Zhang Yang into the bottom of the lake. He thought that Zhang Yang’s strength was very weak, but he did not expect him to be so strong.
He had easily broken the tentacle in the water.
Moreover, human cultivators were the most vengeful. If he did not kill this cultivator this time, when he returned to human society, the one who would die would be him.
After weighing the pros and cons, he replied, “Respected human cultivator, please forgive my vulgar words just now. I will return your people to you now.”
Ishimaki took Hu Tao out from behind.
This time, Hu Tao was wrapped in a bubble, so she did not drown to death.
After taking Hu Tao and carefully observing that he was fine, Zhang Yang once again admired the Lucky Lamb. She really did not die.
“Great human cultivator, your people have been returned to you. We are even now.”
Shiji said respectfully.
“Even? Who is even with you? Now you only have two options!
“One, be my follower, or two, be buried at the bottom of this lake forever.”
Zhang Yang used his wind control ability to send Hu Tao up, then looked at Shiji.
How could it be so easy to ask for the forgiveness of a human cultivator?
“No! You don’t keep your words!”
Shiji roared at Zhang Yang. His body moved in anger, stirring up a whirlpool.
“I don’t keep my words? When will I, Zhang Yang, promise you that I will return Hu Tao and forgive you?”
Zhang Yang did not agree with Shiji from the beginning to the end. It was just Shiji’s wishful thinking.
“Ah! I want you to pay the price, human!”
The stone-talon was completely furious. What did it matter if he was a middle-stage human cultivator?! He was the young stone-talon!
Five tentacles suddenly attacked Zhang Yang like stone pillars.
Zhang Yang looked at the attacking tentacles and was not afraid. The sparks in his hands were ready to be continued.
When he said that, Zhang Yang knew that stone-talon would definitely be unhappy.
“In the water, your fire won’t work, hahaha!”
When Shiji saw the faint red light in Zhang Yang’s hand, he knew that his opponent was going to use fire-bending technique to attack.
“Fire? When did I say I was going to use fire-bending technique to attack!”
A mix of white electric currents appeared in Zhang Yang’s hand, making a sizzling sound.
“Lightning? No! You are not a single element cultivator!”
Shiji widened his eyes in disbelief. Why would this middle-rank human cultivator use the lightning control technique? This did not make sense!
Thunder rumbled in Zhang Yang’s hand. Then, like a wild horse, it flew toward Shiji.
The lightning transformed into a lightning dragon as it charged forward. With a dragon’s roar, it crashed into Shiji’s body.
The violent lightning filled Shiji’s body, and for a moment, the dazzling lightning illuminated everything at the bottom of the lake.
Even the golden treasure pile behind Shiji was illuminated to the point that it was sparkling.
Shiji groaned in pain, and all the tentacles on his body curled up together. His entire body seemed to have shrunk.
“I’ll give you one last chance! Live or die!”
The wood bending technique in Zhang Yang’s hand was ready.
“Live! Great cultivator, no! Great prince Zhang Yang! You are my lifelong pursuit! Wherever your hands point to, I will fight for you!”
Shiji originally wanted to argue that he could not kill him, but the green fluorescent light in Zhang Yang’s hand almost scared him to death.
It was one thing for an intermediate cultivator to know the lightning bending technique, but how could he even know the wood bending technique?
In order to save his life, Shiji hurriedly recited the master-servant oath.
After reciting the master-servant oath, Shiji was forbidden to betray him for the rest of his life. Otherwise, he would be punished by the god of laws.
Every master-servant oath was different. The main thing was that it depended on how well the person involved complimented their master.
“Wouldn’t it be much easier if I had done this earlier?”
Zhang Yang put away the sparkling green light in his hand. After being out for so many days, he finally received a family member.
Moreover, this family member was not a flower vase like Hu Tao, but possessed real combat strength.
After seeing the green light in Zhang Yang’s hand disappear, Shiji heaved a sigh of relief. He was almost done for.
How could a middle-level human cultivator be so powerful!
“Respected master, this is my greeting gift to you.”
Since he had already promised Zhang Yang and made the master-servant oath, Shiji simply handed over the pile of glittering treasures behind him to Zhang Yang.
Shiji did not particularly like treasures. What he liked was to collect the spoils of war from his prey.
However, as he had stayed at the bottom of the lake for a long time, Shiji had accumulated this small pile of treasures.
Zhang Yang smiled happily. This was treasure that belonged to him.
After sending all the treasures into the spirit ring, he swam up with Shiji.
On the shore…
Zhang Xue’er woke up Hu Tao who was in the bubble and hurriedly asked about the situation below.
However, the unconscious Hu Tao did not know anything.
Right now, Zhang Xue’er wanted to dive into the water to find out what was going on.
Right at this moment, there was movement on the surface of the water. Zhang Yang’s valiant body flew out from the water.
Zhang Xue’er’s worries turned into joy. Her brother had finally returned.
However, immediately after, Zhang Xue’er discovered the tentacles behind Zhang Yang’s figure.
“Brother, be careful!”
Without knowing anything, Zhang Xue’er used her trump card against the tentacles and they froze.
