Chapter 7: Berserk Yak, A Small Test
Translator: Dragon Boat Translation Editor: Dragon Boat Translation
Lin Bai wandered around the outer perimeter. For some reason, other than the wild boars at the beginning, there were only small animals behind him. He did not even have the interest to fight.
His gaze could not help but fall into the depths of the dense forest, with a hint of eagerness.
“Should I go take a look around the inner area?”
It was said that risk and opportunity coexisted. With his current strength, even if he could not win, it should not be a problem for him to run. Moreover, he would not go too deep into the forest.
After Lin Bai made up his mind, he walked along the path towards the inner area.
It had probably been a long time since anyone had walked this path. The traces left by the footsteps on the ground were almost indistinct. In addition to the cover of dead branches and leaves, it looked no different from the other areas.
The deeper they went, the taller the trees became, almost blocking out the sun and sky. The light inside was dim, and the intertwined vegetation interweaved together, like an unknown giant beast opening its bloody mouth.
The faint roar of a beast could be heard. Those who were slightly more timid might have already started to retreat, but Lin Bai’s footsteps were neither fast nor slow.
Suddenly, he frowned.
A few deep pits appeared not far in front of him. He walked over to take a look and said uncertainly,
“It should be the footprints left by the golden iron bull or the one-horned winged horse.”
These marks looked like they had been there for a few days, and the soil beside them had long dried up. It was likely that he would not bump into them.
After all, with his current strength, it would still be a little tricky to deal with these marks. Even so, Lin Bai did not dare to let his guard down. He was even more alert.
“Hiss Hiss –”
At this moment, Little Green suddenly stood up. Its small eyes were fixed in the southeast direction. Its body was like a tight bowstring, and its head was slightly lowered. This was the state of an attack made when it was in danger.
Lin Bai followed its line of sight. In the green leaves, a pair of scarlet beast eyes had unknowingly appeared. The cold glint and bloodlust in its eyes made people shudder.
He did not know how long it had been hiding here. Now that it had been discovered by Lin Bai, it no longer hid itself.
Accompanied by a furious roar, the ground trembled violently. The creature rampaged, and the trees cracked. A yak that was as big as an elephant rushed out.
Even Lin Bai felt a great pressure. This was actually a berserk Yak! The violent aura was even worse than the wild boar and the Howling Moon Sky Wolf from before.
His eyes focused, and his gaze was unprecedentedly serious. “It probably has a cultivation state of Houtian realm level five or even more.”
Those who had gone mad could reach level six to seven. Even now, Lin Bai could not retreat. The surroundings were full of shrubs and withered vines, and the terrain was very disadvantageous to him.
Moreover, the speed of the berserk yak was even faster. If he was caught by it, the battle would be even more passive. It would be better to take the initiative to attack.
Lin Bai did not dare to underestimate it and immediately assumed a battle stance. It was as if the yak had been angered by his actions. The yak kicked its front hooves, and instantly shot out like a sharp sword. Its speed was so fast that it was difficult to catch it with the naked eye.
Fortunately, Lin Bai was already prepared. His figure flashed, and he narrowly avoided it.
Its blood-red eyes stared at Lin Bai, and it kept breathing out air from its nose. The hooves of the berserk yak stomped on the ground, and a huge rock was instantly smashed into pieces.
One could imagine that if this attack landed on him, he would be either dead or crippled.
“As expected of a beast at Houtian sixth stage. Its strength is indeed not to be underestimated.”
Lin Bai’s eyes did not show any signs of retreat. Instead, there was a burning desire to fight. “It’s my turn now.”
The moment he finished speaking, Lin Bai moved like the wind. His five fingers formed into claws as he clawed towards the Yak’s eyes.
The berserk yak was just like the wild boar from before. Its skin was rough and its flesh was thick. Its defense was difficult to break through. Only its eyes were its weakest point. Lin Bai circled around the yak’s side at lightning speed, dodging the sharp horns that were flashing with cold light.
A miserable and furious cry sounded startling the birds in the forest.
The yak had never suffered such a serious injury before. Even if it wasn’t a local overlord, it was at least an existence that could do whatever it wanted in this area.
It turned around and wanted to use its horn to pierce the guts of this audacious human.
Lin Bai was prepared to fight, but he saw the yak’s huge body suddenly stop in place. Upon closer inspection, it was actually still trembling.
The originally berserk yak was now like a frightened little quail.
His gaze landed on his shoulder. Greenie’s eyes were like jade, suddenly emitting a green light that enveloped the yak’s body. Although it was small, it couldn’t be ignored.
This was the pressure that came from the depths of the bloodline. Even if Little Green was weak now, the Azure Dragon bloodline could crush everything.
Lin Bai was a little surprised. He didn’t expect this skill to be so useful. Little Green was only at Houtian state level 3, but it could actually make a Houtian level 6 berserk yak so afraid.
Taking advantage of this opportunity, he exerted his strength and grabbed the yak’s horn. He poured all the spiritual energy in his body into it as though he was trying to topple a mountain.
The indestructible horn actually broke in a crack.
The berserk yak already had a sense of fear. It realized that this was a tough bone that was not easy to gnaw on. It raised its iron hooves and wanted to escape. However, Lin Bai would not let it leave so easily.
One punch after another landed on the yak’s body. Its elephant-like body crashed to the ground, and another wave of dust flew up.
Lin Bai panted slightly. He looked at the lifeless berserk yak on the ground, and his expression was a little excited.
One had to know that this was a ferocious beast at Houtian level 6, and he was only at Houtian level 3 now. He had crossed three realms in a row and killed the yak without any injuries. No one would dare believe him if he told them this story.
He slowly exhaled a mouthful of turbid air. The hearty battle did not exhaust him. On the contrary, he felt refreshed, as if something in his heart had relaxed.
Lin Bai hurriedly sat cross-legged and began to circulate the Octane Blast cultivation method. Countless spiritual energies surrounded him and impatiently drilled into his body.
When he opened his eyes again, his entire body was filled with a cold aura. It was as if as long as he waved his hand, he would be able to move mountains and fill the seas.
“This trip to the misty forest was indeed not in vain. I can only make greater progress in actual combat.”
He had cultivated the Octane Blast to the fourth level. Both he and Little Green had broken through to Houtian level 4. It could be said that they had made a qualitative leap.
Little Green hissed and hissed. Sensing its joy, Lin Bai smiled and patted its little head. “You’ve done great this time.”
Little Green had played an important role in killing the yak. This time, it had comprehended a new skill, [ soaring cloud ] , which could greatly increase its own and its speed.
Whether it was to escape or to pursue the enemy, it was a very good choice.
