Chapter 316: Nameless Village
Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
They left Fallen Town.
Li Nianfan brought Nanan and Dragin to head toward the Southwest. Blackie was responsible to lead the way.
The others were more active than Li Nianfan. They were jumping around and were thrilled like they were out on a road trip.
‘Two kids and a dog, all heartless beings. My life is the hardest.’
However, Li Nianfan felt relaxed seeing them like that.
The more they headed southwest, the more they could feel a ghastly aura.
The ghastly aura came from desolation.
They had walked for a long while but they could not see anybody. They only saw beasts occasionally.
However, it could not be helped. The traffic in the Immortal Realm was lousy. Apart from crowded areas, most places were unexplored since it was dangerous. The Immortal Realm naturally did not have tourism industries.
Nanan suddenly sparked up and said, “Brother Nianfan, a bunch of wolves are staring at us. I’ll go kill them.”
Li Nianfan could tell the little girl sounded excited.
Maybe it was because of her past but Nanan was a natural fighter. She was not scared of trouble at all.
“Don’t.” Li Nianfan looked at the sky, “The sky wants us to be nice. Just get the leader of the wolves, it’s time to eat.”
Nanan could not wait. She immediately flew away.
Dragin jogged over with her short legs. She followed along with ‘tap tap tap’ sounds.
“Dragin…” Li Nianfan hurriedly called on her.
Dragin stopped and said coquettishly, “Brother, I want to capture wolves too.”
“Wait until next time.”
Li Nianfan said, “Don’t go together… Look out for me too.”
‘Who would protect me if you two are gone? Do you want me to rely on my silly dog?’
“Oh, I understand.” Dragin nodded and smiled happily.
‘Brother is worry about us, he is scared that we will run into danger.’
Li Nianfan suddenly felt like the Monk.
He walked in the realm of ghosts and monsters and needed people to protect him because he was an ordinary man. His goal was also to go in a direction with a purpose.
The Monk relied on his students while Li Nianfan relied on two little girls. Nanan went off with the wolves.
He wondered if there would be vixens to seduce him.
Oh yeah, he seemed to be missing a ride.
Soon, Nanan came back with a big dead wolf. However, she had a huge black bear on her other hand, it was way bigger than her but she was able to carry it.
The black bear was not at peace. It was quivering in fear.
When it dropped to the floor, it hurriedly covered its head with its paws. It cowered and trembled.
Li Nianfan was taken aback. “What’s going on with this bear?”
Nanan sneered, “When I’m catching the wolf, it roared at me. You wanted me to only kill the wolf but I was angry so I captured it too.”
‘What a…good and powerful reason. Alright, we even have a ride.’
It was a long journey so relying on feet was unrealistic.
Li Nianfan smiled and said, “Good, we can ride on it.”
Everyone had a meal and then they were on the road again.
They were on the road for three days. Nanan and Dragin were busy because they kept being disturbed by demons on the way. However, they did not see any ghosts.
It was in the afternoon on that day.
Nanan suddenly flew in from afar. She said happily, “Brother Nianfan, there’s a village upfront.”
“Oh? Then we should hurry up. Let’s be there before sunset.”
Li Nianfan had sparkles in his eyes. He sat on the big bear and yelled ‘go’. They immediately sped up.
After half an hour, an old village peaked from the horizon. There were thin veils of smoke over there.
They were out camping and eating in the middle of nowhere. They suddenly saw a village and felt familiarity.
The village was mostly built with wood. It had simple fencing around it. There was a big door frame at the center. The entrance did not write the name of the village. It was the Nameless Village.
The entrance was naturally not guarded. However, Dragin and Nanan were quite noisy, they attracted a lot of attention.
Someone panicked inside the village. The villagers were frightened and on guard.
“Don’t worry, everyone. This bear won’t hurt anyone.”
Li Nianfan smiled and leaped down from the bear. He patted its shoulder. “Thanks for accompanying us along the way, you can go now.”
The black bear growled. He lingered then left.
Li Nianfan kept smiling as he saluted the villagers. “Hello everyone, we are siblings who passed by this area. It’s getting dark. We wish to stay here for the night, I wonder if it’s convenient?”
Li Nianfan was with two little girls. The combination easily made the villagers relaxed.
Suddenly, an elder walked out. He might be the Chief. He carefully asked, “May I ask, are you three…Immortals?”
They saw that Li Nianfan and the girls came here riding a bear. They must be extraordinary.
Li Nianfan was too lazy to explain. He said, “Not Immortals, but cultivators.”
Suddenly, he visibly felt that everyone looked at them differently. It was not out of respect. It was complex. Everyone looked at them with various emotions.
The vibe was instantly weird.
“Since you’re cultivators, please, welcome in.”
The elder moved aside with a friendly attitude. He said, “My humble village does not have inns. I can only find somebody’s place for your temporary stay.”
Li Nianfan said, “No worries, thanks.”
However, no surrounding villagers responded. A lot of them stepped backward.
Li Nianfan felt awkward.
Nanan scrunched her nose and sneered. She did not look happy at all. She was about to jump on it. “I’ll go find a place!”
A thirty-year-old woman walked over to say, “I have rooms in my house. Why don’t you all stay at my place?”
“Thanks…lady!” Li Nianfan immediately saluted.
“Please follow me, cultivators.” The lady walked to lead the way.
Li Nianfan followed and asked quietly, “May I ask you something, lady? Is your village in trouble? My two sisters and I have been powerful cultivators since young, we can deal with some small demons.”
Li Nianfan felt more like the Monk.
The lady went pale. She shook her head and said, “No, don’t overthink it.”
Li Nianfan did not say anything else.
Soon, they were at a village house. The house was built from soil and wood. It was simply built but it was nice. In comparison with the other houses in the village, the house was considered half a mansion.
The door opened.
It smelled like alcohol.
A middle-aged man laid on the floor, pouring alcohol into his mouth with his face flushed. He was quite drunk.
He saw that the lady had returned. He stared at her and asked, “Did you bring the stuff back?”
The lady passed over a small package to him. Li Nianfan noticed that it had a small Ginseng in it.
“Why so little?”
The middle-aged man instantly looked displeased. He then noticed the outsiders. He frowned and asked, “Who are they?”
The lady looked uncomfortable. She hurriedly replied, “Passerby, they are here to stay for the night.”
“Stay for the night? Are they going to pay?”
Li Nianfan took out a crushed piece of silver without saying anything.
Silver money was nothing to him. There were too many ways to get it.
The middle-aged man was instantly pleased. He took the money, held the alcohol jar, and could not wait to get out.
