Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
“I’ll leave both of you here,” The old man said solemnly as he glanced at Hu Jie and Zhu Lang, “Cultivate diligently at the Latent Dragon Camp… You’ll benefit greatly if you become one of the Thirteen Gangsters.”
“Qing Rong, shall we?” As they wondered what the Thirteen Gangsters were, the old man looked at Lin Qing Rong, and the solemnity on his face was replaced with a smile.
Lin Qing Rong nodded at the old man before he looked at Duan Ling Tian and Guo Li solemnly. “Duan Ling Tian, Guo Li… The words Elder Liu said are similar to what I want to say to both of you. Do well and fight to become one of the Thirteen Gangsters.” As soon as Lin Qing Rong finished speaking, he left with the old man after they looked at the loft at the side of the high platform. He did not even wait for Duan Ling Tian and Guo Li to respond.
It was, ‘Easy come, and easy go’ for them.
No matter if it were Guo Li, Hu Jie or Zhu Lang, three of them frowned again with a dark expression on their faces after Lin Qing Rong and the old man left. This was because it was just too foul-smelling here.
On the other hand, Duan Ling Tian was the only one who looked calm. It seemed as though he had already adapted to the foul-smelling environment.
“Hi! It’s Duan Ling Tian, right? Don’t… Don’t you think it’s really stinky here?” Zhu Lang’s personality was similar to his name that meant ‘wave’. He was sociable and took the initiative to greet Duan Ling Tian.
“So what if it’s stinky? Don’t we have to stay here no matter what?” Duan Ling Tian shook his head and walked toward the Latent Dragon Camp alone. He was walking toward the dilapidated cottages in the barren land… That was where the manure pit was closest to.
The stench there was even more horrible and unbearable, causing people to stop moving forward.
Guo Li clenched her teeth and went after Duan Ling Tian.
Hu Jie and Zhu Lang looked at each other and saw a hint of helplessness in each other’s eyes. They also went after them subsequently.
Soon after, the four of them arrived at the area with the dilapidated cottages.
They saw many young people similar to them there… Those young people looked as young as they were. Duan Ling Tian discovered their age to be between 28 years old and 30 years old through Divine Eye.
There were some who were above thirty years of age. The oldest one was only 37 years old.
‘Seems like I can be considered as elderly in this Latent Dragon Camp,’ Duan Ling Tian mocked himself inwardly.
Although he knew he was one of the oldest here because he came from Mortal Continent, he felt uneasy. It was a subconscious feeling.
‘The Early Stage of the Mortal Shedding Stage at only 21 years old?’ Duan Ling Tian discovered the youngest among them was at the Early Stage of the Mortal Shedding Stage just like him.
As for the others, the weakest one was at the Early Stage of the Mortal Shedding Stage while some of them were at the Intermediate Stage of the Mortal Shedding Stage… He did not see anyone at the Mastery Stage of the Mortal Shedding Stage at all.
‘So these are the geniuses of Dao Martial Saint Land?’ Duan Ling Tian thought to himself.
The 21-year-old at the Early Stage of the Mortal Shedding Stage really shocked him.
He recalled when he was 21 years old… It seemed like he was still at Darkhan Dynasty. His cultivation base was not worth mentioning at all. It could not compare to the 21-year-old at the Early Stage of the Mortal Shedding Stage.
‘Dao Martial Saint Land’s cultivation environment is insane,’ Duan Ling Tian could not help but exclaim inwardly.
Meanwhile, these young people were scattered around the dilapidated cottages. It appeared as though they had already adapted to the environment here.
“There are more newcomers.” There were both men and women among this group of young people, and they looked at Duan Ling Tian and the other three in an amused manner when they walked in…
Naturally, most of them had their eyes on Guo Li, Hu Jie, and Zhu Lang who were currently frowning, especially Guo Li. Many eyes were looking at her desirously. After all, she was a natural and elegant beauty. It was natural that she stood among all the ladies here. Therefore, she was at the center of attention.
“What a beauty!” Many of them softly exclaimed as their eyes shone. Many of them also walked out of the dilapidated cottages and stared at her unabashedly. They were staring at her like a male wolf in heat.
It caused Guo Li to feel uneasy.
Duan Ling Tian slowed down so she could walk behind him because he seemed to have noticed her unease. He blocked their sight with his body.
“Thank you,” Guo Li thanked Duan Ling Tian softly when she noticed his intention.
Hu Jie and Zhu Lang who were walking at the side noticed that Duan Ling Tian’s simple gesture had earned himself the beauty’s gratitude… They exchanged a glance before copying him. They quickened their footsteps and walked shoulder to shoulder with him. Currently, the three of them blocked all the eyes that were looking at Guo Li.
At this moment, the look from the staring eyes changed from desirous to resentful. It seemed as though they wanted to beat up Duan Ling Tian and the other two.
“Hmph! Such a shame that these geniuses come from Mound Hill City’s border… Don’t they have any virtue?” Hu Jie said with disdain after he scoffed softly.
Everyone who came to the Latent Dragon Camp wanted to change their fate… In the border areas of Mound Hill City, they could either depend on ninth-rate forces or unrated forces.
If they did not pass the challenges in the City Governor’s Estate, they would never be successful in life. They might even be killed one day in the future.
The Master City Governor of the City Governor’s Estate of Mound Hill City was keen about cultivating talents. Apart from adding new blood to the City Governor’s Estate, the founding of Latent Dragon Camp also set a bright path for many.
They could change their fate here, and they might be able to raise their status!
“Do we really have to stay here?” Hu Jie’s expression darkened when they were approaching the dilapidated cottages. However, he knew there was no way he could escape from staying here after seeing the young people walking out of the dilapidated cottages.
Guo Li and Zhu Lang’s expression did not look too good as well.
‘Hmm? All of the cottages out here… are taken? We can only choose from the cottages near the manure pit?’ Duan Ling Tian discovered something soon after.
Those who arrived earlier than them occupied the cottages near the entrance… Although the environment was the same, the stench was not as strong there.
“Shit! There are no more cottages outside?” Zhu Lang could not help but curse when he noticed this.
“If you want to take the cottages outside, you’ll have to defeat the people who had taken them first. You’ll have to get rid of them to conquer their lair,” a young man said. It appeared he had heard Zhu Lang’s words.
“We can do that?” Duan Ling Tian and the other three were stunned. “We can fight in this Latent Dragon Camp?”
“Fighting isn’t prohibited in the Latent Dragon Camp… You won’t be punished as long as you don’t kill or cripple someone,” someone explained when they noticed the dubious expression on their faces.
“Is that so?” Duan Ling Tian mumbled softly before Guo Li and the other two regained their senses. He walked toward the cottage near the entrance on his own accord and looked at the occupant of the cottage.
23 years old, Early Stage of the Mortal Shedding Stage.
That was the cottage occupant’s cultivation base.
Although he was only at the Early Stage of the Mortal Shedding Stage, the fact that he was able to stay in the cottage near the entrance proved that he was powerful. He had a slight smile on his face when he saw Duan Ling Tian approaching him. “What? You’re here to fight for my cottage?”
“I’ll try.” Duan Ling Tian nodded.
Subsequently, the young man at the Early Stage of the Mortal Shedding Stage attacked Duan Ling Tian as everyone watched on. Although he did not hold back when he came at Duan Ling Tian, the young man was defeated with just a blow from him.
“The Intermediate Stage of the Mortal Shedding Stage?” The young man gasped when he was defeated. He did not say much. After glancing at Duan Ling Tian, he went into the cottage close to the manure pit.
He would only stand a chance of challenging the occupant of the cottage after he had healed himself.
“Duan Ling Tian, you did great!” Zhu Lang could not help but give Duan Ling Tian a thumbs up when he saw how quickly he took over the cottage. At the same time, he looked around and discovered the occupants from the other cottages were standing near the entrance.
Zhu Lang was very fortunate. The young man he fought was also at the Early Stage of the Mortal Shedding Stage. He defeated that person with two to three hits and took over the cottage close to the entrance.
“Hu Jie, let’s see what you what got.” After his victory, Zhu Lang looked at Hu Jie with a smile. The both of them came from Storm Town, and they had always competed with each other. It was only natural that they would compete with each other now.
“Hmph!” Hu Jie scoffed softly and found himself an opponent.
His opponent was also a young man at the Intermediate Stage of the Mortal Shedding Stage. They were well-matched in the beginning, but he was defeated later.
“How dare you attempt to take my cottage with this pathetic ability of yours? You must be looking of death.” The young man who defeated Hu Jie glared at him fiercely. “If we’re not in the Latent Dragon Camp, I’ll definitely cripple you even if I don’t kill you… Get lost!”
Hu Jie’s expression was terrible. However, he could only suppress his embarrassment and back off since he was no match for that person.
“What? Do you want my cottage too, beautiful?” The young man who defeated Hu Jie soon noticed Guo Li was looking at him. He had a lecherous look on his face. “I’ll give you my cottage and look for another one if you spend the night with me… What do you think?” The young man’s words were shameless.
Guo Li’s face seemed to have been covered with a layer of frost when she heard his words.
Even Duan Ling Tian could not help but frown. There were people of such quality in the Latent Dragon Camp as well?
Guo Li charged out as the judgemental eyes stared at her one after another. She was charging toward the young man who had defeated Hu Jie. She responded to his question with her action.
Guo Li accelerated her speed. The young man’s face turned solemn when she arrived before him.
He realized the beauty he had verbally teased earlier seemed to be even more powerful than Hu Jie.
The young man did not underestimate her and attacked first when she was close to him. However, he soon discovered his ability was lacking compared to her.
Guo Li defeated him in within three hits.
Perhaps all women were petty. Guo Li stepped on the young man’s chest after defeating him and said coldly, “That’s all you got?”
The young man looked wretched. He only felt embarrassed at this moment. Unfortunately, there was nothing he could do about it.
Who was to blame for the fact that he was no match for Guo Li?
“So powerful!” Guo Li’s ability stunned many of them.
