The Autumn Hunt’s objective: to score points by collecting monster heads.
A rank 1 monster was worth 3 points; a rank 2 was worth 5 points; a rank 3 was worth 10 points; a rank 4 was worth 50 points; and a rank 5 monster that had condensed a core was worth 1000 points. However, in the entire time the Autumn Hunting event had been held, no one was able to kill a rank 5 monster.
Qin Tian and Yun Man killed thirty-six monsters in half an hour, with most of them being rank 2 monsters. They managed to get around 150 points in total.
This was a lucrative amount of points and anyone who saw it would be filled with jealousy.
However, Qin Tian cared not for those points. He looked at Yun Man and said, “You can have all of these heads.”
“Never! I’ll have to cut all of their heads off! That’s so bloody and cruel. I’m too afraid to do that.” Yun Man said softly as she retreated to a side, completely without the fierce demeanor from before. It was as if they were two different people.
Qin Tian looked at Yun Man seriously and understood from her expression that she had no need for any of these. He sliced the Green Tooth Wolf’s head off and dumped it into his wooden plate.
“That’s so cruel and violent! Bloody too!” Yun Man pinched her nose and again took a few steps back. Seeing the bloody forest, she could not help but think of the scene when Qin Yang killed Qin Shan and suddenly felt frightened.
While he was harvesting the heads, Qin Tian secretly glanced at a tree and whispered to himself, “You can really endure.”
When Qin Tian was surrounded by a group of monsters, he saw a shadowy figure hidden among the leaves of the tree. Although that person had hidden his presence very well, he was still found out. That was all thanks to some of the monsters looking up into the tree with a fierce glint, making Qin Tian realize that there was someone hiding up there. As for who that person was, he had no clue.
After gathering more than thirty heads, Qin Tian suddenly fell onto the ground and his face became pale. His head was covered in sweat and he started to breathe heavily.
He beckoned to Yun Man and said, “Just now, I was bitten by the Smallpox Spider and now my whole leg is paralyzed. Do you have any Dans against poison?”
Qin Tian had half of his body on the ground. His face showed that he was enduring an intense pain. One hand grabbed his leg, and the other hit it without stopping. Dark blood flowed out of his leg continuously, like the spider had secreted a deadly venom
“I… you… Why didn’t you say so earlier!” Yun Man became anxious and hurried towards him. Standing near him, she saw that his entire leg had become black, and became a little worried, “Let me carry you to the cave.”
“I can’t make it anymore, my… my leg has completely lost…” Qin Tian panted like a cow and his face became as white as paper.
His pained face made Yun Man so anxious that she almost cried. Seeing his pained face, she did not know what to do. She did not have any Dans for poison as she did not know that the event would actually be so dangerous. If she had known that it would be this dangerous, she would definitely not have participated.
“It’s alright. Just be on alert and protect me. I’ll use my Qigong to force the poison out. Don’t let anyone bother me.” Qin Tian said loudly while secretly eyeing the tree.
After saying that, Qin Tian sat down and meditated with full concentration.
“Okay. Okay. Force the poison out quickly. I’ll protect you.” Yun Man became vigilant and did not dare neglect her duty.
“Haha… the Heavens are helping me, haha…” Qin Yang jumped and landed on the ground. With a cold smile, he walked towards Qin Tian with a sword in his hand.
“You… you…” When Yun Man saw Qin Yang, her face became pale and the scene of the murder committed by Qin Yang continued to replay in her head, making her whole body shudder.
She was truly scared.
Qin Yang licked his lips, and looked at Yun Man filthily. “Never did I expect you to have hidden your true abilities for so long. A small little outer disciple… To have such a deep cultivation… you really did hide it well. If you follow me today, I’ll recommend you to an elder after the Autumn Hunting Event, and you’ll be able to become an elite in the Qin family. How ‘bout it? If you follow me, you won’t have to be afraid of anything anymore. In the Qin family, and even in Qinghe city, no one will dare to bully you.”
Qin Yang walked towards her, one step at a time. Looking at her trembling body, his despicable smile became even more intense. Whatever happened in the Autumn Hunting Event, the Qin family will not act on it.
They wouldn’t care if one kills another, let alone rape. Especially since he was someone whom the elders of the court valued and the son of a great elder. Thus, who would dare to go against him?
“You… don’t come closer! I… I’ll strike first if you do!” Yun Man gathered up her courage and said. She then looked at the boy beside her and started to feel anxious.
At this point in time, Qin Tian, who was sitting cross-legged with both his eyes closed, started to emit a faint amount of Qigong. The beads of sweat on his forehead were like soybeans. It was as if he had reached a critical moment.
“Haha…” Qin Yang increased his speed and shook his sword. He knew that his opportunity was slipping away. He had already seen Yun Man’s strength. If both of them were to fight it out, he was afraid that the winner would be hard to determine. When Qin Tian woke up, he would completely lose.
What he wanted to do now was end Qin Tian’s life with a strike. Others could be dealt with slowly. Seeing Yun Man’s delicate little face, he started to have some evil thoughts. After finishing off all of the problems, he would find a nice place and enjoy himself.
The more he thought about it, the greater his smile became. He made Yun Man retreat one step at a time. With his right hand holding onto a sword, he silently activated his Qigong.
The sword exuded a dominating aura, making Yun Man’s heart panic. Unable to make any judgement, she started to hate herself. She didn’t dare to fight against another human, so why did she even bother cultivating in the first place?
The reason Yun Man had never gotten the Qin family’s attention was because she did not dare fight people. She was afraid to harm people and the scene of others fighting. She was unable to restrain that fear in her heart.
She shot out the ribbons in her hand, both reaching further than ten feet. Qin Yang was startled, but soon sneered. The ribbons did not contain any power and were just like any ordinary ribbon, graceful and beautiful, but impotent.
“Little beauty, don’t be scared. Brother will dote on you later.” Qin Yang seemed to have seen through Yun Man, and he became more and more excited. He did not even consider the meditating Qin Tian as someone who could pose much of a threat.
To him, Qin Tian was already a dead man. With just a chop, Qin Tian’s head would fall.
Yun Man stood in front of Qin Tian. He could smell the fragrance of her body, very fresh, very comfortable…
“So, who’s the oriole now?” The edge of Qin Tian’s mouth lifted slightly, revealing a smile.
