C6 Gu Xin'er's Reward
Knowing that he couldn't avoid it, Meng Fann slightly clenched his fist, lifting his head to look into Gu Xin'er's eyes, and said faintly, "Yes. It seems like Xin has come out to cultivate too. You're so hardworking. I wonder what realm you have reached!"
Hearing this, Gu Xin'er blinked her eyes and said softly.
"Brother Meng Fann , I have already reached the fifth tier of the Body Refining Realm. How is it? Am I amazing?"
Fifth tier of the Body Refining Realm!
Meng Fann nodded, but he couldn't help but sigh within him. He didn't expect Gu Xin'er to have reached the fifth tier of the Body Refining Realm as well because Gu Xin'er didn't really like to cultivate. When he thought of this, Meng Fann's smile slightly revealed a hint of bitterness as he said faintly.
"Xin is a Qi Essence cultivation genius!"
Seeing Meng Fann's bitter smile, Gu Xin'er's expression stiffened. She immediately reacted and grabbed the corner of her clothes with her small hand as she said softly.
"Sorry, Brother Meng Fann , I..."
Meng Fann shook his head. The moment when he wanted to reach out and touch Gu Xin'er's hair as he did in the past, he held back his hand. He only replied calmly, "The more powerful you are, the happier I am. Don't forget, both of us grew up together!"
Gu Xin'er nodded when she heard Meng Fann's words. She then looked at Meng Fann while biting her lips gently as if she had hidden bitterness.
"But Brother Meng Fann , it has been two years since you last came to play with Xin!"
Meng Fann suddenly cleared his throat and explained himself instantly, "I need to cultivate as I'm not talented as you do, Xin!"
Gu Xin'er forced a smile and said in a low voice.
"I also need to work hard in my cultivation too. Father said that the importance of talent and Spirit Herbs only come after the heart of cultivation. In this aspect, I still need to learn from Brother Meng Fann and Big Sister. I've has already fallen behind her by a lot, and the Clans Tournament is around the corner. Not only do I need to cultivate, but I also need to collect the Azure Snakes as well!"
Upon hearing these two words, Meng Fann's body trembled. The so-called Clans Tournament that Gu Xin'er spoke of was an important competition that only happened once a year in Wu Town. At that time, all of the Young Generation of Wu Town would participate.
This tournament held a lot of weight in Wu Town. If he could enter the top 20, he would surely receive a lot of rewards. Moreover, it was rumored that the winners would receive the Spirit Herbs which were second grade and above.
After some calculations, Meng Fann knew that there was only one month left until the Clans Tournament. However, for Meng Fann, being in the top 20 was merely just a dream.
Meng Fann put on a bitter smile, hesitating for a moment before saying in a low voice.
"Collecting the Azure Snake. Are you still cultivating the technique that your father passed you?"
Gu Xin'er nodded. Looking at the beautiful young girl in front of him, Meng Fann frowned slightly. There may not be many people who knew about this secret, but Meng Fann was one of her playmates since childhood.
The cultivation technique that Gu Xin'er cultivated was the Qi Essence Cultivation Technique's fragment that the mayor, Gu Yuan, had specially prepared for her. This Qi Essence Cultivation Technique was incomplete, and its origin was extremely mysterious. Furthermore, the tier of the cultivation technique was unknown, yet Gu Yuan insisted Gu Xin'er cultivate this technique.
Meng Fann was also unclear about this mysterious cultivation technique, but since it was Gu Yuan who had asked Gu Xin'er to cultivate it, then it must not be an ordinary cultivation technique.
The requirements to cultivate this cultivation technique were extremely bizarre as the first condition was to absorb the energy from the Demonic Core within the Devil Beast's body. Hence, Gu Xin'er had been capturing the most basic tier 1 Devil Beast, Azure Snake, all these years.
Scratching his head, Meng Fann suddenly asked.
"Are you sure you can do it?"
Although Tier 1 Devil Beast, the Azure Snake did not possess a destructive power, it was a challenge for Gu Xin'er because she was born with a kind nature. Even though she could easily capture the Azure Snake with her strength, sometimes her conscience stopped her from doing so. Thus, during their childhood times, it was Meng Fann who caught her the Azure Snake during her cultivation. But later on, Meng Fann slowly distanced himself from her.
Seeing Meng Fann's teasing, Gu Xin'er's pretty face blushed while said with a hint of resentment, "Even if I can't do it, no one will help me!"
As soon as she finished speaking, there was an indescribable feeling of blame, which caused Meng Fann to laugh bitterly. It seemed that his deliberate alienation made Gu Xin'er have a lot of resentment towards him. After pondering for a moment, Meng Fann gritted his teeth and said.
"Ten days later. At that time, when the Azure Snakes on the mountain will be active, they will come down from the mountain unceasingly. By the time, wait for me at this place, I'll catch some for you. How about it?"
Hearing this, Gu Xin'er's eyes twinkled with joyfulness as she hurriedly asked, "Really?"
Meng Fann nodded and said faintly, "When have I ever lied to you?"
Gu Xin'er snorted, looking at Meng Fann, and said softly, "Alright. Remember your promise to me when the time comes. Don't forget. How about this, I'll pay you your salary in advance."
A bitter smile appeared on Meng Fann's face as he looked at Gu Xin'er helplessly, not knowing what this little girl wanted. However, at this time, Gu Xin'er's fair jade-like hand moved. She solemnly took out an item from her bosom and handed it to Meng Fann. It was a black scroll, she handed it to Meng Fann without saying anything.
Immediately, Gu Xin'er's pretty face blushed as she turned around and left, leaving behind a shadow of a beautiful figure in Meng Fann's eyes. After she ran far away, Gu Xin'er's lively voice passed his ears.
"Brother Meng Fann, you have to do your best. I've heard about the incident between you and Lei Tao. That annoying guy is definitely not as good as Brother Meng Fann. I believe that Brother Meng Fann will definitely bring glory to Clans Competition!"
Meng Fann's pupils slightly contracted as he looked into the distance. Glory? Currently, in the entire Wu Town, only Gu Xin'er, his mother and a few others still had hope for him, who had mediocre talent.
Shaking his head, Meng Fann immediately opened the scroll that Gu Xin'er left behind. The moment he read the line of small words written on the scroll, his entire body trembled and his small face was filled with astonishment.
This was because it was clearly written on the scroll — Mid Tier Qi Essence Cultivation Technique, Iron Palm!
