Afternoon, inside the cave.
Yun Man woke up. Seeing Qin Tian sitting at the entrance of the cave, she heaved a sigh of relief.
“You’re finally awake.” Qin Tian turned his head and smiled.
Her face was cherry red and she felt a little embarrassed. Secretly, she blamed herself. Wasn’t it only a fight? It was a little bloody, yet she wasn’t able to handle it.
Every time she had to fight with someone, she would always worry about injuring her opponent. Her heart would always ache whenever she saw someone injured. It had been that way since young, and she was unable to find any reason for it.
This was a world where the strong were respected. No one would show kindness to their enemies, yet she could not fight back. Even in the midst of a life and death situation, her heart would only think about not harming others.
After spending a day with Yun Man, Qin Tian realized that it was psychological and that she was born like this. To worry about those injured, and to worry about injuring others. He could not understand the reason behind it. However, there was one thing which he could be assured of: she would never stab him in the back.
“Let’s go kill some monsters.” Qin Tian stood up and walked out of the entrance.
“Wait for me!” Yun Man quickly got up and followed behind him.
“Hu… hu… hu…” [the sound of someone breathing.]
“Qin Tian, I won’t let you off! Just you wait, I’ll definitely make mincemeat out of you to vent my anger!”
Full of cold sweat, Qin Yang leaned against a tree and panted heavily. The shirt around his chest was dyed with blood. Upon seeing it, both his eyes flashed with anger and hatred.
He had fled far away without stopping, while his blood continued to flow out. The injury was deep and his bone could be seen.
Only when he had used up all his Qigong did he stop fleeing. He was currently like a stray dog, which was extremely embarrassing to him. Never had he been so embarrassed all his life. The anger in his chest made him forget all about the pain. All he felt was a sense of deep hatred and anger.
He took out a healing Dan and sat down to meditate after taking it. He had to recover his Qigong as soon as possible. Being in the forest infested with countless of monsters without Qigong was the same as being a bird without wings.
“Yo, isn’t this Qin Yang?”
In an instant, Qin Yang’s eyes opened. He endured the pain from his wounds and stood up. “Qin Kun…”
The person who had arrived was Qin Kun, who was struggling to find Qin Tian to quench his thirst for revenge.
Behind Qin Kun were five of the Qin Family’s outer disciples, who were all bought off by him. As long as they were able to kill Qin Tian, they would all be able to get a low-rank ability and have the qualifications to become one of Qin Family’s elites.
The temptation was hard to resist. Six against one, they believed the task to be an easy one.
Looking at Qin Yang’s appearance, Qin Kun laughed. “How rare it is to see you humiliated, who have you met? Was it the abnormal Qin Feng?”
Though both of their parents were the Qin Family’s great elders, they rarely came in contact with each other. They had never interfered with each other’s business, but to see Qin Yang covered in blood, he couldn’t help but ridicule him a bit.
However, he felt a little puzzled. Others may not know, but Qin Yang’s cultivation was above his. Qin Yang was very calculative, and always doing things carefully. Since he was little, he had never suffered loss, so his appearance now was an incredible sight.
The only dangerous person in this Autumn Hunting Event was Qin Feng. Could Qin Yang really have met that abnormal man?
Qin Yang did not answer. He was pondering on whether Qin Kun would kill him.
Killing in the Autumn Hunting event was considered something normal. If he were to die, nothing could be done about it even if his father knew. It was the rule laid down by their ancestors: no matter what happens inside, none can interfere.
“Rest assured, I won’t kill you.” Qin Kun knew what Qin Yang was worried about. Without killing Qin Tian, he would not waste his Qigong. Qin Yang may look injured, but who knew whether it was a trap or not. A sinister person like him could do anything to accomplish his goals.
After hearing what Qin Kun said, Qin Yang tightened his guard and became more alert. There were some mistakes which he did not want to commit a second time.
“We won’t bother you anymore.” Qin Kun looked at Qin Yang and felt a little disdain. “Let’s go.”
“Wait.” Qin Yang was relieved, now that he had determined he would not be killed by Qin Kun. Since he did not try to kill him, they could form a temporary alliance since they both shared a common goal.
Qin Yang already knew that Qin Kun had been defeated in one move in the martial arts field by Qin Tian. From his understanding of Qin Kun, he knew that Qin Kun would never swallow that humiliation.
With Qin Xiangtian always trying to make things difficult for Qin Tian, he knew that Qin Kun had come to the Autumn Hunting Event with only one goal – to kill Qin Tian.
Obviously, Qin Yang’s hate for Qin Tian is no less than that of Qin Kun’s.
Qin Kun turned his head and asked, “Is there any problem?”
“I know the whereabouts of Qin Tian.” Qin Yang exposed a glowering smile. After adding Qin Kun’s strength to his, killing Qin Tian would become very easy.
He had wanted to recover first, before finding an opportunity to attack, but now, it seemed like that wasn’t necessary anymore.
Qin Kun’s strength was somewhat on par with his, and with the addition of five more ranked-five warriors, killing Qin Tian would definitely be a small task.
Thus, Qin Yang voiced his opinion on forming an alliance.
“An enemy of my enemy is my friend.” Both Qin Kun and he had the same goal, and to make the plan foolproof, forming an alliance was essential.
However, to Qin Tian, it was a serious threat.
With that, Qin Yang joined the team of six. Qin Kun guarded Qin Yang while he recovered his strength.
Every disciple who had joined the event were all below Spirit Formation Realm. This alliance of two Seventh-Rank Warriors might make them the strongest group in the Autumn Hunting Event.
In a tree hole not far away from Qin Yang, a pair of eyes disappeared into the darkness.
That man hiding in the darkness was Qin Fang, a Ninth-Rank Warrior with Qigong at the eighth layer. He was Qin Family’s strongest member who was below the Spirit Formation Realm.
He had gotten used to resting during the day and hunting monsters at the night.
He had clearly heard the conversation between Qin Kun and Qin Yang. Though it was against his principles, he did not want to interfere.
His aim was to be the first in this event, and he had accumulated more than a 1000 points. As long as he spent his remaining time hunting monsters and getting a 1000 more points, he was sure that no one would be able to exceed him.
Regarding other things, he didn’t have the mood to care nor the time to do so.
“Qin Family, ai…” In the darkness, Qin Feng helplessly shook his head but let out a bitter smile. He was very unhappy with the current situation of the Qin Family, but he knew that he could only change it if he became stronger.
Words needed to be backed with strength.
There were still three years left. In those three years, he had to reach the Spirit Refining Realm, or there would be no chance left.
In three years time, Qin Feng would be 18 years old, and it would be his final chance to take the assessment. If he came in first, he would be eligible to fight for a chance to become the patriarch.
If he was successful, he would become the next patriarch.
That was his aim.
