Chapter 863: The Sword That Breaks Through The Sky (5)
Ming Shu fell onto a tree. Before she could get up, a black shadow slammed into her and her waist almost broke. It was the python.
She slid down from the tree and pulled the python down too.
This is food!
I can’t lose it!
She didn’t see anyone from the Wuji Sword Sect around her. She didn’t even see any rocks from the cliff.
This place was a little strange.
She was in a dense forest. The trees were not tall and they had a standard distance between them.
A white jade pavement was laid out in front of her.
Ming Shu squatted down to take a look. It was real white jade. It even had reiki in it.
To a cultivator, white jade was useless. However, a white jade that had reiki was worthy.
I must have bumped into a rich person.
“Who are you?”
A young voice sounded behind Ming Shu. She turned around and saw a little child wearing a blackish green robe standing on the white jade pavement.
The child had two buns on his head and his round face looked puzzled.
“What is this place?” Ming Shu asked without answering him.
“It is a hidden paradise.” The child’s eyes turned into half-moons. He was really cute. “Did you come from outside?”
“How do you know that I came from outside?”
“Things kept dropping down,” the child answered naturally.
“What about those people that fell together with me?”
“Maybe they landed in different places. Are they your friends? I can help you look for them. This place is huge.”
Ming Shu understood now. Everyone fell down, but landed in different places.
“No need.” Ming Shu smiled at the little child. “They are not my friends.”
The child was stunned for a moment. However, he didn’t probe further. He suggested leading the way for Ming Shu to leave.
Ming Shu nodded her head. She dragged the python and followed the little child.
The child stared at the giant python speechless. He didn’t want Ming Shu to bring such a huge thing along with her, but when he saw Ming Shu’s smiling face, he couldn’t say a single word.
The child said that this was a hidden paradise.
Ming Shu walked out of the forest with the child and saw a white jade palace standing not far away. The words “Hidden Paradise” on the palace were extremely striking.
The child brought Ming Shu into the white jade palace.
There were many children in the white jade palace. They were all white and round, the kind of shape that looked really delicious.
Ming Shu scanned the main hall. She retracted her gaze naturally and then caught up with the child.
The child guided Ming Shu along the corridor and explained to her in a cute voice, “Our master is meditating behind closed doors now. However, he asked us to take care of anyone that dropped down and then send you all out after a while.”
“Is your master trying to increase his power as a demon?”
The child looked at Ming Shu curiously. “My master is a cultivator. He cannot become a demon.”
Ming Shu suddenly bent down and smiled. “Oh? Then why do you have a demonic aura around you?”
Only the protagonists would find a kind old man to impart skills when they fell off the cliff. For people like her, they would only meet demons.
The child: “…”
He was stunned for a moment before he looked down at himself and groaned with frustration. “I am already trying my best to suppress my demonic aura. How did you still manage to sense it? Sob, my master will scold me.”
“Don’t worry, he won’t.” Ming Shu wanted to touch his head.
The child realized what Ming Shu wanted to do and raised his hand to attack her.
However, he was not Ming Shu’s match at all.
The child noticed that the situation was disadvantageous for him and changed into his true form. He wanted to escape.
Ming Shu grabbed his tail and picked him up from the floor.
“A Dragon Li cat?”
The huge amount of reiki from the white jade made it easy for people to neglect the demonic aura on the child’s body.
Most people would be distracted by the white jade and ignored the harmless-looking little boy.
Ming Shu listened to the child but she never believed him.
“I wonder if a Dragon Li cat is good to eat?” Ming Shu touched her chin and muttered to herself.
“Sob, aren’t you human? Why are you eating demons?” The Dragon Li cat was shocked.
“I am just learning from you. Demon eats humans so humans can eat demons too,” Ming Shu said logically. “What is wrong with that?”
“You, you, you…”
The Dragon Li cat was stunned. It had never met a human that wanted to eat a demon.
“Where were you going to take me just now?” Ming Shu demanded and grabbed the Dragon Li cat.
“…” The Dragon Li cat covered its mouth and kept quiet.
Ming Shu didn’t force it. She held it in her hand and walked into a courtyard.
There was no one else here except for the children. It provided Ming Shu with a good location.
“Do you know how to barbecue meat?”
The Dragon Li cat stared at Ming Shu in fear. She… She wants me to barbecue myself?
Ming Shu placed the Dragon Li cat in front of the python. “Barbecue this.”
The Dragon Li cat: “…” She dragged this all the way here so that she can eat it?
Ming Shu had already released it so the Dragon Li cat turned back into a child. The exit of the courtyard was just behind him. Should he run?
The girl in red smiled at him mysteriously.
The child sobbed and stood in front of the python unwillingly.
There was a lot of meat on the python. The child’s hand was sore from all the barbecuing, but the girl in red still didn’t seem full.
Why can she eat so much…
Ming Shu asked the child again, “Where did you want to bring me to? If you don’t tell me, I will barbecue you.”
The child glanced at the plight of the python and sobbed, “To the pond at the back.”
“Why do you want to bring me to the pond? To have a party?”
What is a party?
The little child didn’t understand what Ming Shu was saying. He said with his eyes full of tears, “I will push… push you all into the pond. I don’t know… We don’t know what will happen to you all. We were caught and brought here. Sob.”
The child cried as he spoke. They were all demons living nearby. They were caught by their master and brought here to wait for people to fall down.
Because they could turn themselves into children who looked really innocent, the people that fell down would not suspect them.
They just needed to make them drink some tea and then throw the person into the pond.
“What is in the pond?”
“A… A sword,” the child said.
Most people used a sword in this world so swords were common.
Ming Shu filled her stomach and asked the child to bring her to see the sword.
The child didn’t dare to protest so he led the way.
The pond was in another courtyard.
The child looked over the wall. He shrunk his head back after a while. “My… master is inside.”
Ming Shu looked over the wall too. There was a person inside. The person had a lascivious air around him.
It was a man but he didn’t look like a man at all. He was wearing a thin layer of clothes and he twisted his waist as he walked. His chest was flat.
He walked in circles around the pond. The pond was bubbling and a black sword floated in the middle of it.
Ming Shu felt that the television shows she watched were all fake. Those swords were always stabbed into the ground or filled with a powerful aura.
This sword just floated in the pond as if someone had casually tossed it in.
