Chapter 237 Old Jiang Disappeared
Han Fei took a breath. The Sea Quelling Painting was definitely involved with a big secret. Was it an extremely precious treasure? Han Fei took out the box with the three words “Sea Quelling Painting” on it and Jiang Qin’s eyeballs almost popped out.
Han Fei hurriedly said, “Sister Qin, let’s not be excited first. Let’s check if there is anything in the box.”
Jiang Qin grunted and took the box over. Her hands flashed with spiritual energy and the magic array on the box gleamed. With a pop, the box opened.
But as Han Fei expected, the box was empty.
Jiang Qin breathed a sigh of relief and murmured, “I thought too much. How can the Sea Quelling Painting be here?”
She calmed down and said, “If the Sea Quelling Painting is here, the Heavenly Water Village would have long been flattened by countless strong masters who would have scoured the area.”
Han Fei sighed. “Sister Qin, look at this.”
Han Fei took out the fish skin. When Jiang Qin saw the content on it, she suddenly lunged to her feet and looked somber.
Han Fei asked curiously, “Sister Qin, the fish skin says that the Sea Quelling Painting is in the Bone Yard. Where is the Bone Yard? Is it in the level-three fishery?”
Jiang Qin’s face kept changing and said after a long while, “No, it is outside the level-three fishery.”
Han Fei asked in surprise, “Is it the Unknown Place?”
Jiang Qin nodded slightly, then put away the fish skin, and said indifferently, “Let’s go back!”
Without a word, Han Fei steered the fishing boat to fly back to the Heavenly Water Village, and Jiang Qin stood on the deck with her hands clenched into fists. Obviously, she was dealing with internal strife.
After quite a while, Jiang Qin said, “What did you encounter below? When I arrived, there seemed to be traces of a fierce fight.”
“Well! I met a big centipede that could absorb spiritual energy. We fought all the way from the deck to the bottom of the ship, and then into a hole, where I found this sword. When I pulled out the sword, you came.”
Jiang Qin nodded slightly. “It must be a Spirit Absorbing Centipede. You’re unlucky. That thing’s defense is amazing but its attack power is not strong. Now the seal has been removed and it should have run to the level-two fishery. Don’t worry.”
Han Fei didn’t speak. Hoho, Sister Qin, what you don’t know is that it has become a tail for Nine Tails.
Jiang Qin glanced back at Han Fei. “Have you become an advanced great fishing master?”
Han Fei smiled. “I found some stones with a lot of spiritual energy in it, so I cultivated a bit and then made a breakthrough.”
Jiang Qin: “…” When Jiang Qin saw the stones in Han Fei’s hand, she asked with a frown, “Low-quality spiritual stones? With a Spirit Absorbing Centipede, why hadn’t the spiritual energy in these stones been sucked up?”
Han Fei lied. “I found them in a strange box.” Han Fei didn’t feel guilty at all. After all, he couldn’t just tell Jiang Qin that he could also suck spiritual energy and even store spiritual energy! Jiang Qin did not pay much attention to it. She tried to calm down, looked at Han Fei and said seriously, “Don’t tell anyone about the Sea Quelling Painting. Note that it is anyone, including your classmates and teachers in the Fourth Academy, understood?”
Han Fei scratched his head. “Sister Qin, what on earth is the Sea Quelling Painting?”
“You don’t have to know. I had thought they went to explore a secret realm and got stuck in it. But now, I found that I was wrong. They actually went to find the painting… Han Fei, there are some things that you shall never try, even if you have the opportunity to go to the Unknown Place.”
Han Fei was confused. What she said seemed to be very important, but he didn’t understand at all, so he felt nothing but bewilderment by her words.
Jiang Qin said to Han Fei, “Now I don’t ask anything of you. You don’t have to look for him for me. This matter is more complicated than I thought.”
Han Fei blinked. “Sister Qin, are you going to this Bone Yard yourself?”
Jiang Qin didn’t answer but just said, “Just leave this matter alone. Go back to school early after resting in the village for a few days! As far as I know, the comprehensive strength of you guys is far from enough. Don’t think you’re already invincible because you’ve explored the level-two fishery. You haven’t even gone to the level-three fishery
Han Fei blinked again. Is she driving me away?
Back in the Heavenly Water Village, Han Fei happened to see He Xiaoyu, Wang Baiyu, and Xia Wushuang preparing to go to sea.
Seeing Han Fei from afar, He Xiaoyu quickly called him, “Han Fei!”
Han Fei naturally saw them, but he didn’t have the time to talk to them. The Sea Quelling Painting must be very important. The damn Old Jiang still had a lot not to teach him yet. What if Jiang Qin and Old Jiang were gone? Where could he find them then?
Han Fei just waved at them, saying, “Sorry, I have something to tend to. See you later!”
He hurriedly followed Jiang Qin to the plantation.
The smile on He Xiaoyu’s face disappeared and her hands fell down, and she snorted. “Asshole, he didn’t even bother to say hello to
Wang Baiyu frowned. “Han Fei seems to be in a hurry. He must have something urgent to deal with. Let’s ask him to have a meal with us later.”
This was just a little interlude and Han Fei had soon forgotten about it.
As soon as Jiang Qin came back, she threw the fish skin to Old Jiang. Old Jiang picked up the fish skin map and then, the lazy look on his face was gone.
Old Jiang narrowed his eyes and looked at Han Fei. “Did you find it? What else did you find?”
Han Fei spread his hands. “Nothing else! Oh, there were also three corpses but they were already bones, so I didn’t bring them back.”
Jiang Qin stared at Han Fei. “Why didn’t you say this earlier?”
Han Fei was helpless. “But you didn’t ask
Old Jiang waved his hand. “Well, he can’t be among them. Now I don’t know if he is in the Bone Yard or… Forget it. Han Fei, make some good dishes tonight. Don’t forget the dumplings you made the other day. Make more of them.”
Han Fei blinked. “Grandpa, why do I have a feeling that you’re going to leave?”
Old Jiang grunted. “Leave here? Where can I go? I just want to eat some good food.”
Han Fei didn’t quite believe him. “OK, shall I also make a hot pot?”
“Sure! And the Drunken Shrimp…”
At night, Han Fei made eight dishes and a large basin of dumplings. In fact, as a cultivator, he could definitely eat the food up. If he wanted, he could quickly digest it and then continue to eat.
But eating was a pleasure. He didn’t want to eat too much.
But it was different tonight. Old Jiang said, “Han Fei, drink some liquor with me.”
Han Fei was surprised. “Are you willing to share with me?”
Old Jiang laughed. “I know how you make wine. Do you think I’m afraid you’ll drink my liquor up?”
Jiang Qin only ate for a while and then went back to her room, leaving Old Jiang and Han Fei drinking together.
After drinking for a while, Han Fei asked, “Grandpa, do you still have any particularly powerful combat skills for spirit gatherers left to teach me? I learned the healing techniques in school. You didn’t teach me
Old Jiang gave a loud belch and said lazily, “No, no, I don’t have any combat skills left! Your strength depends on how you use the combat skills you’ve learned. Practice makes perfect.”
Han Fei didn’t believe him at all. This old man often lied.
In the end, a table of dishes and a big pot of hot pot were eaten clean by the two of them, and Han Fei gradually felt sleepy. The liquor was really strong!
The next day.
Han Fei stretched himself, yawned, and got up from the bed, muttering, “Grandpa, we can’t drink so much next time! I’m still a kid and I haven’t grown up.”
Han Fei walked out the door rubbing his eyes, only to find that Old Jiang was not lying on the recliner. The table outside the house was still messy, and no one cleaned it up.
Han Fei called out and shocked the liquor out of his body with spiritual energy. He walked around the house and found no one.
The point was that the vinegar tank was also gone, to which Han Fei didn’t know what to say.
When Han Fei found a fish skin and a jade slip on the messy table, he couldn’t help cursing, “Asshole, old bastard, didn’t you say you wouldn’t leave? You’re too much! You shameless…”
