Chapter 1: Freak Xie Aoyu
As the sunset, there was a teen named Xie Aoyu, laying on the summit of mount Langya, his head supported by both his hand, holding a strand of grass in his mouth. His legs were crossed as he looks upon the burning clouds in the sky.
He spits out the strand of grass in his mouth.
“Am I, Xie Aoyu, going to be useless my entire life?” Xie Aoyu muttered to himself.
Bearing the halo of being the son of Langya City number 1 expert, Xie Qian, Xie Aoyu has received countless attention since he was young. The moment he was born, there were experts from Xie family who looked into his physique, as well as his cultivation talent.
The result was absolutely shocking.
Now only was his physique was great, cultivation talent was high, definitely better when compared to Xie Qian. For this reason, Xie family put all their resources into him and made him the hope of Xie family.
However, the heaven didn’t follow what the people wished for.
He started cultivating ever since he was 7, from then Xie Aoyu received blows after blows. His cultivation was tough and his family used the best medicine on him, but others cultivate Battle Qi in a year, what about him?
As of now, he is already 16 years old but not even a single trace of Battle Qi could be found within his body.
As a result, when he was 10, Xie Qian went to everywhere in the Qi Ao continent and paid visits to highly skilled experts, hoping they could find the root of Xie Aoyu’s special constitution and where the problem lies.
The result was disappointing.
No matter who it was, be it the so-called first-rate Emperor level experts in the entire continent or the most mystical medicine masters, all of them determined that Xie Aoyu’s physique and cultivation talent are of the best. Some Emperor level experts even claimed that if he could cultivate Battle Qi, he would reach Emperor level if anything bad didn’t happen.
From then on, Xie Aoyu was known as an absolute freak.
‘Do I really have to give up?’ Xie Aoyu thought to himself. Ever since he was young, he was determined to become like his father, Xie Qian, standing at the peak of martial arts. Even under the countless amount of blows and setbacks he receives, he wouldn’t give up, every day was cultivating, crazily cultivating. His physique was trained to a point where most warriors would be jealous, but he still did not have a strand of Battle Qi.
Looking at the setting sun, Xie Aoyu rose up and left with disappointment.
“Ding Ding Ding”
Just as he was walking halfway down the mountain, he heard a collision of weapons colliding and people yelling.
Due to not having any Battle Qi, Xie Aoyu knows deep within himself that if the strength of a battling person was too high, their Battle Qi ripples could kill him. So, he quickly found a place to hide.
He hid behind a mountain rock.
The moment he hid, he heard a pitiful scream. Xie Aoyu raised his head to see a middle-aged man running towards him. He was stabbed through his chest by a sword from behind and he heavily fell on the ground.
The person behind him was panting roughly, his whole body covered in wounds. Surprisingly he did not pick up his weapon, Instead, he went to he went to search the body of the now deceased man, seemingly looking for something. As he was rummaging about, his face expressed immense joy as he pulled out a small fine box from the bosom of the fallen man, but it is completely covered in blood, “Haha, I finally found…”
A sharp dagger stabbed into that person’s chest. The now falling man said while vomiting blood, “I… I.. Even if I die, you… you… you are coming with me.”
The man who had a dagger in his heart loosened his hand and the little box fell to the ground.
The box opened, a dazzling purple, golden and green color ball came rolling out. It gave off a thick fragrance, and Xie Aoyu realizing two men just fought over this color ball, thus quickly procedded to pick the ball.
Even under the strong smell of blood from the two corpses, the ball still gave off a great fragrance, completely masking the smell of the environment.
“What a great smell.” Xie Aoyu said placing it in front of his nose and sniffing it.
Intoxicated by the flavor, when the 3-colored ball came in contact with his lips, it melted instantly and formed into clear, tiny stream as it entered his throat.
Xie Aoyu was in shock, immediately tried to vomit. After all, he could not determine whether it was poisonous or not since there were many things that were poison and also had a great smell to it.
However, after throwing up a while by stick his fingers in his throat, nothing came out.
Also, he clearly felt that stream diluted after it entered his throat. It formed countless more streams as it flows throughout his body, making him feel incomparably comfortable. The last stream was gathered on the position of his left chest.
Xie Aoyu immediately rips off his clothes to see, everything was normal.
After moving about for a while, nothing felt wrong.
He then checks on the two corpses, nothing was on their body. They did not even have any storage equipment like a spatial ring. The only thing that attracted his attention was that both men had a soaring white tiger tattoo on their left wrist. It was quite vivid and lifelike, at first glance, it looks like it was real.
Xie Aoyu mumbled a bit and left with questions. He did not want to stay there, leaving the two corpse, who knew if they had partners coming their way.
As he entered Langya city, unknowingly dozens of men appeared in front of the spot he left with the two corpses.
One of them was wearing golden clothing. Without any emotion, he picked up and small box and said, “Search!”
People behind him started searching immediately.
They search their surrounding many times, almost completely overturning the place.
“Lord, there’s nothing.”
The face of the golden clothed man twitched, “Capture every human and beast you see in the vicinity, search one by one, if you can’t find it,” Speaking to this point, he suddenly paused, “If you can’t find it, don’t think of leaving here, alive!”
Those people shivered and started searching again.
The golden clothed man looked at the faraway Langya city, while the breeze swept by, his left wrist appearing to have a white tiger tattoo, “I hope that lord won’t kill me as I am tackling the Emperor level.”
As they were searching, the one who had the 3-colored ball, Xie Aoyu, already entered Langya city.
Entering Langya city, Xie Aoyu felt uncomfortable.
If one had to same, the person who was the most popular in Langya city, it wouldn’t be the number 1 expert Xie Qian, or city lord of Langya, not even the peerless beauty and alchemist master, Zi Yan, but the freak, Xie Aoyu.
Having incomparable talent, his meridian channel since birth was wide, virtually no impurities that prevented cultivation, yet he could not create Battle Qi. In addition to having the halo of being the son of Langya city number 1 expert, even if he didn’t want to be recognized, it would be near impossible. So, every time when he is on the street, Xie Aoyu always see and feels people gazing at him.
“Ahh, screw it. I, Xie Aoyu, am a man. Why would I be bothered about what others think of me.” Xie Aoyu consoled himself in his heart
But at the bottom of his heart, a strong bitterness surged out.
He did not want to admit his defeat.
“Isn’t this our Xie family most famous, well known, super talented genius?” An eccentric voice came sounding from behind.
Xie Aoyu frowned and ignored it as he continues walking forward.
From his back, a person sped up his pace, blocking off Xie Aoyu from the front, widening his hand, “Genius Xie, don’t run so fast, can’t you hear young master Zhe calling you?”
Xie Aoyu sighed, the first to speak, his name was Xie Zhe, he is the only son of one of old Xie Kun. One of the Xie family elders. They were Xie Aoyu’s sworn enemies because they always did not see eye to eye with Xie Aoyu. The one who blocked him in front was the henchman of Xie Kun, a dog to be exact, Xie family distant relative, Xie Gang.
“Genius Xie, why are you running so fast? Why don’t you give us trash, a chance to make favors with you?” Xie Zhe fakely smiled as he walks in front of Xie Aoyu.
“What do you want?” Xie Aoyu replied coldly.
Xie Zhe laughed, “Nothing much, I was just running short on money. Genius Xie lend me some money.”
“Don’t have any.” Xie Aoyu said, taking his leave.
“Hmm?” Coldness flashed through Xie Zhe’s eyes.
Xie Gang widens his hands to block off Xie Aoyu’s path, “Genius Xie, if you are willing to borrow us some money, I’m afraid it will be uncomfortable for you.”
Xie Aoyu was enraged, gripping his fist tightly.
“Why? Do you want to fight? Haha, Genius Xie, just you yourself alone, won’t have the qualification to fight us.” Xie Zhe curls his lips as he said mockingly. He extended one finger, “Do you believe that one of my fingers can stab you to your death, useless trash that can’t even cultivate a single strand of Battle Qi.”
The anger and humiliation within Xie Aoyu flared.
