“How interesting…” A man walked out from behind a tree and sneered. His eyes were filled with disdain.
Qin Yang, 18 years old, was the only son of one of the eight great elders, Qin Kuang, and was a Seventh-Ranked Warrior. He looked like a harmless man, but in reality, he was sinister and strategical. He often used a borrowed knife to kill, which meant the old men looked at him as an importance to the family.
“Qin Yang, what do you want?” Qin Shan, one hand on his chest and the other on the ground, stood up slowly. He looked at Qin Yang and a trace of fear appeared in his heart.
He had some basic knowledge about Qin Yang. The phrase ‘the mantis stalks the cicada, unaware of the oriole behind,’ was only one of the tricks up Qin Shan’s sleeve, but he never expected this to happen to himself. [to pursue a narrow gain while neglecting a greater danger]
At that moment, Qin Niu coughed a few times. He stood up with great difficulty and secretly gathered his Qigong, getting ready.
“The both of you should really save yourselves the trouble. Seeing the state you are in right now, do you both still think you’ll be able to defeat me? Haha…”
Qin Yang walked towards the side of the Ferocious Tiger King. Looking at the tiger, who was still panting heavily, he laughed coldly. “The five points… I’ll be taking them.”
After finishing his sentence, he took out the steel sword behind his back, and struck the tiger down.
Holding on to the fierce tiger king’s head while smiling, he took out a wooden plate. In an instant, the head disappeared.
The wooden plate was Tianyuan continent’s most roughly crafted. Its storage space was very limited and not really done well. It did not need a drop of blood to recognize its master, so anyone could use it.
Everyone participating in the Autumn Hunting event had received one to store the head of the killed monsters. However, there was a bloodier reason behind them as well. They made people contend against one another. Just by killing another and taking their wooden plates, the killer would receive everything inside.
None of the wooden plates were numbered and they looked the same, in order to prevent outsiders from seeking revenge after the hunt.
Qin Shan and Qin Niu could only watch Qin Yang silently as he took the five points for himself. They did not have much strength left, and secretly scolded themselves in their heart. This only happened because they were too greedy!
Qin Yang was not in a hurry to leave after gaining the five points, and walked towards Qin Shan. He exposed a death-like smile and said, “The Qin clan does not need trash like you.”
“Qin Yang, what do you think you’re doing? Aren’t you afraid that…” Before Qin Shan could finish speaking, Qin Yang waved his sword. The edge of the sword contained Qigong and it directly chopped off Qin Shan’s head.
After killing Qin Shan, Qin Yang turned his head to look at Qin Niu.
At that moment, Qin Niu scurried away crazily. He was only a Fifth-Ranked Warrior, and is seriously injured to boot! How would he be able to defeat Qin Yang alone?
“Please let me go this once, I beg of you. If you let me go, I’ll leave this event immediately, please…”
“Begging me? Haha… You don’t even have the qualifications to beg me.”
Qin Yang jumped and stayed in the air for a moment before landing on a branch and using it as a spring. He jumped again. In the air, both his hands were holding onto the handle. Both his eyes seemed to be protruding out as he let out an arrogant cold sneer.
Qin Niu’s body split into two. Blood splattered in the surroundings, and his intestines landed onto the ground. The scene was extremely gruesome, and Qin Tian felt nauseous after seeing that.
“Haha. As I’ve said before, the Qin clan does not need waste.” Qin Yang licked the fresh blood off of his sword and let out a smile. He then dashed quickly into the forest.
“Too f**king sick!” Qin Tian couldn’t help but blurt out. One wouldn’t really feel much about seeing the scene just now if it was in the movies from his previous life. However, with it happening right in front of him, he would have vomited if not for his self-control.
‘What? Is the little girl not afraid at all?’ To be scared to death after seeing colourful insects, how could she not be afraid and cling onto him when looking at the bloody scene?
Qin Tian turned his head and looked at Yun Man, only to be dumbfounded.
Yun Man had buried her head under her knees and stood motionlessly, like how an ostrich would bury its head in the soft ground in the face of danger.
“Wei. Wei.” Qin Tian said twice softly, but Yun Man made no reaction.
Not having a choice, Qin Tian pushed her. Her body toppled over and she fainted.
“I dare say this can’t be right, right? She fainted?”
No wonder she hadn’t reacted! She had already fainted. Qin Tian looked at the unconscious Yun Man dumbfoundedly and cursed in his mind. ‘F**k, what is the system even thinking? Wanting me to carry her, isn’t this just giving me more burden?’
Was this to increase the difficulty of the game? By bringing a new person?
F**k this sh**!
Qin Tian was not in the mood to ponder anymore. Since they were now a team, he had to bring Yun Man along. Looking at her appearance now, she still carried a bit of cuteness. Qin Tian shook his head before carrying her. Slowly, he treaded slowly towards the border of the Kunlun mountain range.
From the day he had blocked Qin Xiangtian’s shadowless move, most of the Qigong he had accumulated was depleted. The amount of Qigong Qin Tian had managed to accumulate during the three days in the slaughterhouse was not even near 3000, and thus he could only use the Heavenly Dragon Form Scripture a few times. To Qin Tian, Qigong was very precious and had to be used properly. No Qigong could be wasted.
The only thing he could do now to replenish his Qigong was maximize the number of monsters he hunted. If not, when he met Qin Kun, he would definitely lose, no matter how abnormal he may be.
Sunset. In a blink of an eye, the sky was getting darker.
The darkness was the monsters’ feeding time, and the hunt fed them even more with the bodies of the contestants. In most situations, people would find a safe place to rest and await dawn.
Those at the Warrior Realm had night vision, but it only reached up to 10 meters. Monsters, on the other hand, could see better in the darkness than they could in the day. (TL: I’m not sure if it’s all or some, so please keep an open mind as you read. Thank you)
In the darkness, silence filled the surroundings. In addition to one’s vision, one’s reaction speed was also extremely important. However, a human’s reaction speed was only 1/10th of many of the monsters in the mountain.
Therefore at night, it would be good if one did not roam about aimlessly, or he might accidentally lose his life.
The night was dark, and the dim moonlight could not shine through the dense leaves of the trees. The wind blew, and the leaves made rustling sounds…
“Wu…o…o…o…” The cry of Green Teeth Wolves sounded in the night sky, and the whole forest shook in fear.
It had begun. The hunt had begun.
In the trees, a black shadow could be seen moving.
He was like an eagle searching for a prey, constantly looking around while roaming, as if he was the master of the night.
He was Qin Tian, the hunter in the night.
