Chapter 32

The peppercorn that could replace the macked pepper, the scarlet heart pepper that was spicier than the millet pepper, the white spirit fruit that tasted sweet and sour.

Ji Ruo crushed all of them and placed them into the empty holes of the tree stumps.
Then, he started to marinate the small fish.

Liang Shixian told Ji Ruo not to be so arrogant, but when he was looking for ‘seasonings,’ he found some fruits that could be used as substitutes for scallions, ginger, and garlic.

“Meow, meow, meow! (Master, are you still not done? Hurry, hurry, hurry!)”

Luo Qian was lying on Ji Ruo’s head.
She was looking at the colorful fish in the hollow of the tree trunk with longing eyes.
She was getting impatient.

A strange aroma entered her nose, and Luo Qian could not wait any longer.

“Don’t worry, it’ll be even more delicious after marinating.
It’s definitely a delicacy you’ve never tasted before,” Ji Ruo said with a smile.

Ji Ruo had no idea how these small fish grew, but the bones in their bodies became crispy under high temperatures.
When Luo Qian ate the first fish, Ji Ruo observed that the bones of these small fish could be crushed with a pinch of her fingers after they were cooked.
They must taste good.

He slashed the small fish one by one, making them delicious.
“Ah, no.
The cute little fish is more flavorful when marinated,” he mused.

“Let’s marinate it for about half an hour,” Ji Ruo said, glancing at his watch.

This was a device specially made for the martial arts examination.
It was originally used to record scores and send out distress signals.

But now that the Myriad Beast Mountain’s secret realm had changed, the basic network of the secret realm built by humans had long been scrapped.
This watch could be considered to lost half its function.

Ji Ruo could only look at the time and record his scores.
There was no internet for him to upload data.
If he recorded too many scores, it would easily fill up the memory of this device.
Therefore, Ji Ruo could only use this device to look at the time for now.

While they were waiting, Ji Ruo continued to teach Liang Shixian Thunderbolt Flash.

In essence, Thunderbolt Flash could only be considered an ordinary sword drawing skill, but when used in conjunction with a special breathing technique, its power could not be underestimated.

Other things aside, if Liang Shixian could learn and use the breathing technique in a short period of time, then the survival rate of the two of them in this secret realm would definitely increase greatly.
Although in this case, even if it increased greatly, the overall survival rate would still be very low.

“Meow, meow, meow! (Master, you can go by yourself.
I want to stay with my fish!)”

“Okay, but don’t eat it secretly.
It’s easy to get diarrhea if you eat raw food,” Ji Ruo said as he put Luo Qian down.

Luo Qian squatted by the tree stump and looked at the more than twenty small fish in the hole.
They were colorful and looked very delicious.
Luo Qian drooled.


It turned to look at Ji Ruo and Liang Shixian, who were engrossed in teaching and learning respectively.
Luo Qian suddenly thought, “There’s so much fish, it should be fine to secretly eat a little… No! Master said that I can’t eat it secretly.
Maybe just a little bit to try the taste…”

After making sure that Ji Ruo and the others were not looking at it, Luo Qian carefully reached out its claws.
She hesitated for a while and picked up a piece of scarlet heart pepper instead of the fish.

“I’m just trying it out, it’s not stealing.”

It convinced itself and swallowed the scarlet heart pepper.
“Uh! This taste…”

Luo Qian jumped off the stump and ran around in a panic.
It ran to the tree demons and meowed anxiously, as if it was running to tell them something.

“Meow! Meow! Meow! (Spicy! Spicy! It’s so spicy!)”

When Ji Ruo came back half an hour later, he saw Luo Qian lying on the ground with a sorrowful look.
He chuckled.
“Didn’t I tell you that you’ll have diarrhea if you eat raw food? All right, it’s almost marinated to the point where the taste can be felt.
Just wait a moment, we can start eating soon.

Luo Qian said weakly.
“Meow! (I’m not eating anymore, I’m not eating anymore.
It’s so spicy that I’m dying.)”

Ji Ruo smiled and ran to the stream to wash his hands.
Then, he came back and grabbed a small fish from the hole in the tree stump.
He put his hands together.

A red light glowed on Ji Ruo’s palms, and the temperature suddenly increased.

The temperature of Iron Sand Palm at the mastery level was extremely high.
In theory, it was not something that a martial apprentice could control.

If Ji Ruo was already in the pulsing realm, Iron Sand Palm could even burn with raging flames.

However, it was not too bad now.
With his palms together, it could be considered a double-frying pan in a sense.


The marinated fish was caught between two sides of his palm.
The high temperature cooked the fish by force, and the alluring fragrance slowly wafted in the air.
Even Liang Shixian could not help but gulp his saliva.

Never in his wildest dreams would he have thought that he would be able to eat grilled fish in the secret realm of Myriad Beast Mountain.

Ji Ruo roasted one for Luo Qian.

The little fellow was still a little scared at first, but it could not resist the alluring fragrance and took a bite carefully.

Its eyes glowed as it sat up and pointed at the grilled fish, its upper limbs gesturing wildly.
“Meow, meow, meow! (Master, this is too delicious!)”

Ji Ruo smiled.
Then, he started to cook the fish faster.
The two people and the cat ate until their mouths were full of oil.
They did not even let go of the bones.

Luo Qian lay on the ground, rubbing its round belly, and said in satisfaction, “Meow! (So comfortable.)”

Ji Ruo took a look.
“Okay, it’s a female cat.
I don’t know if it can be raised into a cat girl.”

After eating and drinking to his heart’s content, he picked some spiritual fruits for dessert.
Ji Ruo asked Liang Shixian to help him stand up the tree demon that he had cut down earlier and put it back on the tree stump.

Liang Shixian was speechless and asked, “Are you really going to put it back in?”

He thought to himself, ‘You’ve already hollowed out its body, so why should you put it back?’

“You can’t let our tree demon brother sleep on the ground, can we? It’s easy to catch a cold if you sleep on the floor.”

Liang Shixian was at a loss for words.

The two of them worked together and placed the tree trunk back in place.

Liang Shixian looked at the obvious knife marks on the tree trunk and asked, “If it wakes up at night, I’m afraid it won’t be able to leave.”

The feet of a tree demon were the roots of a tree.
The so-called uprooting from the ground referred to the migration of tree demons.

“This is indeed a problem.” Ji Ruo touched his chin.

Ji Ruo thought for a while and picked up some mud from the ground.
He ran to the stream and wet it.
Then he ran back and smeared the mud on the ‘wound’ of the trunk.
He clapped his hands and said, “This is fine.”

It was a slight pity that such an exquisite first aid method did not trigger the achievement.

Liang Shixian was rendered speechless by his actions once again.

“What are we doing now?” Liang Shixian asked.

Ji Ruo thought for a while, “Should we take a nap? The tree demons will migrate for an entire night.
If we don’t take a nap, I’m afraid we won’t be able to hold on.”

“Indeed.” Liang Shixian agreed.
“Then, you should sleep first.
I’ll keep watch for you.
It’ll be my turn later.”

“That’s so troublesome.

Ji Ruo suddenly picked up Luo Qian and asked, “Little Luo Qian, we’re going to sleep now.
Can you help us keep watch? You can sleep after we wake up tonight.

Little Luo Qian patted its chest and said, “Meow! (Master, don’t worry.
Leave it to me!)”

“All right.” Ji Ruo looked at Liang Shixian.”That’s enough.
Go to sleep.”

Liang Shixian was at a loss for words.

He glanced at Luo Qian thoughtfully and mused, “This cat seemed to have high intelligence.”

“Boom boom boom!”

Suddenly, a series of explosions came from the forest in the distance.
Ji Ruo quickly climbed onto the tallest tree and looked toward the source of the sound.

He was at least a few dozen miles away from the explosion, and it had come from the top of the mountain.

Thick smoke billowed as a terrifying demonic aura and spiritual aura swept across the area.

“Ribbit! (Damned human!)”

Author remark: This demon had been croaking all day long.
