The blond man rubbed his shoulder. He said angrily, “Rascal, are you blind?!”
He was scolding Qin Chuan.
Qin Chuan shrugged innocently and said, “You were the one who bumped into me.”
“Don’t you know how to dodge?” the man shot back fiercely.
Qin Chuan replied calmly, “I don’t have eyes on the back of my head.”
The blond was furious.
The people around them felt pity for Qin Chuan.
The blond man walked forward and grabbed Qin Chuan’s collar. “Rascal, do you know who I am?”
Qin Chuan replied indifferently, “Do I need to know?”
“You…” The blond was furious. He raised his fist, positioning himself to hit Qin Chuan.
At this moment, Qin Chuan’s number was suddenly called.
Qin Chuan casually pushed the man tugging at his clothes, and he was sent flying like a ball.
Qin Chuan didn’t use any force. Otherwise, the man’s life would have been in danger.
However, Qin Chuan’s push was still quite solid.
The blond man fell to the ground with a loud thud, pathetic.
Everyone watching was dumbfounded.
Qin Chuan didn’t pay much attention to him. As if nothing had happened, he went to the counter and handed his ticket to the shop assistant.
The staff made no comments either. She tossed the ticket into the wastepaper basket, put the roasted duck into a bag, and placed it on the counter.
Qin Chuan took out his only 100 yuan note and waited for his change.
At this moment, the blond man suddenly appeared behind him.
He was prepared to punch Qin Chuan in the face.
Qin Chuan was stunned. Just as he was about to retaliate, he suddenly remembered that he was no longer an ordinary person. If he were to fight, he might accidentally kill someone, and that would mean trouble.
So, Qin Chuan’s only option was to dodge.
The man’s punch missed.
He was exasperated and wanted to swing another punch.
Qin Chuan still didn’t retaliate, doing his best to avoid him.
After a while, all the man’s strikes missed.
The blond panted. One of his hands held the corner of the table and the other hand was on his waist.
“Damn you. I dare you to stop dodging!”
Qin Chuan laughed helplessly.
If I don’t dodge, you’d be dead.
At this moment, an uncle walked over.
The uncle whispered into Qin Chuan’s ear, “Young man, ignore this hooligan.
“He’s not worth your trouble. Just take your things and leave!”
While this man had good intentions, Qin Chuan wasn’t a pushover.
If others kept challenging his boundaries, then he wouldn’t be polite.
So, Qin Chuan took his roasted duck and left the restaurant.
The blond man immediately shouted, “Rascal, stay if you dare.”
He wanted to chase after Qin Chuan, but he had clearly fallen hard from Qin Chuan’s earlier push.
Qin Chuan opened up the paper bag. In no time, only the bones of the duck were left.
Qin Chuan patted his stomach, and he leaned back on the sofa with a satisfied look on his face. He had completely forgotten about the earlier conflict in the restaurant.
The next day, at the foot of Mountain Hu.
Qin Chuan thought that he had arrived early.
Unexpectedly, some folks were already there.
There were also some unfamiliar faces.
After everyone had gathered, Qin Chuan checked the Immortal Cultivation Register.
There were now more than 50 cultivators.
Although the majority of them were old, this did not affect the cultivation.
Qin Chuan welcomed the elderly.
If they were all youngsters, there would be another huge problem in management.
Today, Wang Zhixing was here.
Qin Chuan saw him frowning. He seemed to have something on his mind.
“Grandpa Wang, is there something on your mind?” Qin Chuan walked over to him.
Wang Zhixing glanced at him, seemingly thinking.
After a while, Wang Zhixing spoke up, “Qin Chuan, are you hiding something from me?”
Qin Chuan was stunned, he didn’t understand why the other party would ask such a question.
Wang Zhixing smiled. “I know you have your own troubles, so I can understand if you don’t want to talk about it.
“However, all the people you’ve gathered right now are all elderly. If something happens, can you take responsibility?
“Actually, this isn’t entirely your fault. I’m partly responsible.
“So don’t worry. If something happens in the future, I will help you. I won’t let you take the blame.”
After Qin Chuan heard this, he was really confused.
Wang Zhixing had been absent yesterday because he had been thinking.
Ever since he ended the call with his old friend, he was convinced that Qin Chuan was using cultivation as a guise to grab people for his trials.
The reason he did not expose him was because of his own selfish motives.
It was because he had really become younger, and his stamina had also improved.
Humans have emotions and desires, and a great educator like Wang Zhixing was no exception.
At his age, he had already experienced everything that he should have experienced.
To be honest, the moment his wife had left, his heart had also left with her.
His children had their own families, and he didn’t want to disturb them.
It wasn’t like he liked being alone but that was his only choice.
But, after meeting Qin Chuan and coming into contact with the so-called cultivation training class, he felt like he had another choice.
During the breathing exercise, he was extremely relaxed. With all his worries and desires pushed away, he was able to clear his mind and enjoyed the session.
Even though he knew that all of this was an illusion created by the drug, he would rather be trapped here.
So, he didn’t want to expose Qin Chuan.
He also felt that a smart person like Qin Chuan should know what he was talking about.
Unfortunately, Qin Chuan did not.
Qin Chuan was simple. He wouldn’t try and think about something he didn’t understand.
That was too taxing on his brain.
As a human, living simply is the best.
“Grandpa Wang, do you still want to continue cultivating?”
Qin Chuan had tossed everything Wang Zhixing had said to the back of his mind.
Wang Zhixing, similarly, did not continue their previous topic.
He knew that the reason Qin Chuan asked if he still wanted to cultivate was because he couldn’t ask him to continue using the psychoactive drug.
After all, the side effects were quite dangerous.
However, he had a solution. His ‘cultivation’, naturally, had to continue.
Hence, he immediately agreed.
A few minutes later.
At the same forest, they felt the same sensation.
After a moment of dizziness, everyone appeared in the sect.
The seniors consciously headed to the training hall to meditate and do their breathing exercise.
The newcomers were led to prepare for cultivation.
Time passed quickly, and the day was about to end.
Today, eight people managed to draw Qi into their bodies.
Although he didn’t manage to unlock any achievements, Qin Chuan was still satisfied.
After sending off the elderly, Qin Chuan returned home again.
As he passed by the roast duck restaurant, the alluring aroma of the meat made him drool.
But with the money he had… it was affecting him. He couldn’t even afford a roast duck.
“Forget it, I’ll just appreciate the smell and pretend that I’ve eaten it.”
Qin Chuan stood there for a few minutes and left.
As soon as he left, a group of people arrived.
The leader was a bald man, followed by a group of underlings. The blond man from yesterday was among them.
He was wrapped in plaster, holding a cane and limping.
After Qin Chuan left yesterday, the man’s lower back hurt terribly, so he specially went to a clinic.
Unexpectedly, his hip joint was injured.
He was so angry that he approached his boss, the bald man.
“Brother, he’s the one who left me in this state.” The blond man pointed at Qin Chuan’s back.
The bald man didn’t say anything else. With a wave of his hand, his lackeys immediately chased Qin Chuan.
