Chapter 8



Mount Tydol was a vast and mysterious mountain range filled with many kinds of unusual plants and strange beasts . There are many varieties of spiritual herbs and plants scattered about the rough grassy terrain, with spirit fruits growing from humongous ancient trees . Their branches have become so large that they appeared to have blocked off the sky as they stretched across the wild forestry deep within the mountain range .

Roar! The cries of various essence beasts were heard faintly resounding throughout the entire region, further increasing the wild and untamed atmosphere .

The sky was getting bleak, as water drops started to fall from the clouds . One drop of water fell on top of a colossal tree towering the area, it slid down a large leaf the size of two men, finally, dripping on Feng Yu, who was hiding underneath the tree .

Pat!

"It seems that it's about to start raining," Feng Yu said while wiping the raindrop from his forehead .

He was silently perched on top of a large branch . His form camouflaged by many gigantic leaves . Occasionally, his ears would make a slight twitching motion as he carefully scouted the region . Soon, his gaze became fixed towards a specific location within a dense field of tall grass . Shortly after, a figure became visible, swiftly making its way through the tall thickets with high speed and skill . It was a panther moving carefully and with agility . This panther was three meters tall, five meters in length, with purples stripes covering its black skin .

Strangely enough, despite its massive frame, it made no sound as it swiftly made its way through the shrubs . Very quickly, it arrived at Feng Yu's location . It seemed to have picked up his scent as it carefully sniffed the region . An intelligent gleam shined in its dark eyes .

Swish! "Scorching Mantis Strike!" Seeing an opening, Feng Yu quickly launched an attack utilizing the first stance of the <Blazing Mantis Palm Arts> .

As if sensing the danger beforehand, the panther promptly evaded by leaping backward leaving an afterimage in its wake demonstrating astounding flexibility . Sensing that its opponent's cultivation was no stronger than itself, it immediately repositioned itself into an attack posture and gave off a loud roar while dashing towards Feng Yu .

Rooaarrr! Swoosh!

"Shit! It's fast!" Feeling a bit surprised by the panther's speed, Feng Yu frowned while grumbling . However, he didn't dare let his guard down either . He quickly got into the 'Mantis Stance' preparing to counterattack the panther's speedy assault .

A cunning glint gleamed in the panther's eyes as it made a mocking expression . With a slight shake of its body, another afterimage appeared . This afterimage then branched off into multiple similar afterimages agilely traversing the distance while shuffling amongst each other creating an illusive scene .



Swish! Swish! Swish!

"Hmph . . . Such a cunning cat . Are you forcing me into a frontal assault? It seems that your specialty is quite exquisite indeed . Sadly, you're underestimating me too much!" Feng Yu inwardly praised its Movement Technique while sneering . He dashed towards the images of the panther utilizing his <Lightning Flash Steps> Movement Skill .

Flash! Flash! Flash!

After a series of lines similar to lightning, Feng Yu's figure abruptly appeared within the center of the panther's afterimages . As if in slow motion, he lifted his hands slowly and began swiping his palms out in a fluid style, leaving many remnant outlines after each swipe . Soon, his hands became blurry due to the speed of his palm attacks . They struck all the images of the panther instantly dispersing the illusion ability caused by its stunning movement speed .

A look of shock appeared in the panther's eyes as it swiftly started to retreat .

Seeing this act, Feng Yu mocked, "HA! You're too late!" With another flash, he quickly disappeared from the panther's field of vision leaving only a bright trailing line of lightning .

Before the panther could react, a flash of red light swept across its neck all the way towards its sternum .

Like a ghost, Feng Yu appeared below its underbelly with his back facing the front of the panther, while sustaining the Mantis Attack Stance . He crouched on the ground, with one leg in front of the other . His right hand was positioned towards the ground while his left hand was held high above his head with its palm curved over . Droplets of blood dripped from the index finger onto his right palm and then to the ground .

Pat . Pat . Pat .

Roooaaaarrr! Looking at the undefended prey in front of him, the panther roared in rage preparing to unleash its most powerful method .

Puff! A line of blood appeared trailing from the back of its neck all the way to front . The panther panicked and wanted to run away, but the situation was already decided .


Soon the light in the panther's eyes faded away, and its head flew from its body, leaving traces of burn marks on the ripped surface . Bloodshot forth like a geyser, spraying around the green grass and covering the area in shades of bloody red . The pungent scent of blood began to linger throughout the air .

Wiping the blood off his hands, Feng Yu then said in a disappointed manner, "It seems I'm still far away from achieving insights into the third stance . I imbued my 'Blurry Mantis Palms' with the strength of fire essence to the Complete State finally . However, I don't have a slight clue as to how to execute the Third Move: Blazing Palm Wave . Sigh, it's only been four days since I started hunting; there should still be plenty of time . "

"This purple striped Black Panther should be my 5th Five-Star Tier 1 Essence Beast . Now that I've warmed up, I should go try some stronger creatures . "

Essence Beasts are creatures that could cultivate using the essences of heaven and earth . These beasts are no less intelligent than human beings . Like cultivators, they are divided into different tiers according to the strength . Tier 1 Essence Beasts have the strength of a Body Training realm expert, ranging from low levels to high levels using the 'Star Ranking System . '

Generally, from 1 Star to 9 Star would be the same as the 1st Tier to 9th Tier of each corresponding martial cultivation realm . Tier 1 - Tier 4 beasts are usually referred to as Essence Beasts, while Tier 5 to Tier 8 beasts are referred to as Supreme Beasts .

There are stories of another type of creature that is unable to be categorized as merely 'Beast Kind,' but that is a story from a distant and ancient time .

The rain was falling harshly within the mountain range, and the thunder echoed throughout the surroundings . The liveliness of the environment disappeared due to the gloomy atmosphere of nature once again revealing its might .

FLASH! KA-BANG!

A flash of lightning struck a distant location; instantly destroying a large rock hidden within the forestry of the steep mountainside . Shortly after, however, another three flashes of lightning appeared swiftly traversing through the region, leaving a long trailing line for each ray .

Flash! Flash! Flash!

Feng Yu's form was flashing from location to location within the mountain's forest . Each flash took him 15 meters away from the last . This was a sign that he had reached the perfection in the simple stage in the <Lightning Flash Steps> movement skill .

He soon arrived at an area with a dense collection of trees . Carefully making his way through the branches of the trees, Feng Yu saw a field in front of him hidden away from the outside due to trees .

"Oh, there should be a good place to take a rest from this awful weather . Hmm, maybe I should give it a quick inspection first to be sure," After making a quick decision, Feng Yu then headed towards the field .

Hou! Hou! Hou!

As he drew closer to the area, sounds of apes could be heard within the field .

"There are creatures here . I should be a little more cautious . " Swiftly he flashed and vanished into a shrubbery the size of a fully-grown man .

Now the field was in full view . Looking through the dense shrubbery in front of him, he saw a community of apes playing around in a small lake . These apes had beautiful silver fur and had long muscular arms . A few of the young apes were eating fruit and lying on the ground while the elder apes were mixing collected fruits into a large jar carefully .

Soon the smell of liquor drifted towards the surroundings . Taking a quick whiff, Feng Yu instantly became excited .

"Monkey Liquor! What great luck! To come here at such a time when it's about to be brewed . Hmm, that color, these must be Silver Furred Apes . "

Curious, Feng Yu wanted to try out the strength of these Silver Furred Ape's but decided against it . His priority now was to steal the Jar of Monkey Liquor .

Monkey Liquor is said to be a rare medicinal alcohol created by 'Ape Kind . ' Not only is it capable of healing severe injuries, but it could also help one build a firmer foundation, making a practitioner experience more natural breakthroughs in lower cultivation realms .

"With this liquor, I should be able to stabilize my foundation at a quicker pace and clear up the hidden effects of the multiple realm breakthroughs I had back at the clan," Feng Yu said as he calmed his thoughts and carefully observed the situation .

Soon the Monkey Liquor was completed, and all the Silver Furred Apes began to shout excitedly as they gathered around the Jar .

ROOOAAAARRRR!

As the saying goes, 'Birds Die in Search of Food . ' Like birds, many animals share the same basic instinct . Suddenly, a Gigantic Red Tiger that was 10 meters in height and 15 meters long appeared with a golden crown that had nine stars shining brightly on its forehead . It lifted its head and roared towards the sky demonstrating its prestige for a moment, soon after, it charged towards the area of elder apes with the Jar of monkey liquor . A look of greed was gleaming in its eyes as it stared at the jar of monkey liquor .

Feng Yu called out in shock, "Golden Crown Red Tiger King!"

Hou! Hou! Hou!!

The apes were furious; they rushed out in an attempt to block the Red Tiger King but were soon ripped to shreds with a swipe of its humongous paws .

Still shocked, Feng Yu pondered, "A 9 Star Tier 1 Essence Beast like this is willing to fight these Silver Furred Apes for the Monkey Liquor . Could it be on the verge of a breakthrough towards Tier 2?"

Smashing away all the weaker Silver Furred Apes, the Tiger King was excited because it was about to reach the Monkey Liquor .

"RED TIGER, HOW DARE YOU!"

Suddenly the essences of heaven and earth became chaotic once again as a voice echoed across the perimeter .

WHOOSH! BOOM!

An Ancient Tree, 50 meters tall requiring at least 35 men to surround it with their arms, was instantly snapped in half . The figure that appeared was like that of a Silver Furred Ape but was golden in color . It had a height of 30 meters with arms as thick as large water barrels . There were nine stars also shining brightly on its chest . It gave off a primordial aura of ancient and supreme might .

"GOLDEN FURRED APE KING!" Feng Yu was stricken with fear .

As if sharing the same shock as Feng Yu, the Golden Crown Tiger King looked with an expression of terror on its face .
