The Fengling Continent was a world dominated by magic and douqi. There were many strange races on the continent as humans occupy most of the world. In the middle of the continent was a perilous forest, an area that most ordinary people couldn’t set foot on.
The Magical Beast Forest was a paradise for adventurers and had an inexhaustible source of energy for people to use. Even if they lived far away, many cultivators would come to train, resulting in a relatively competitive place. One could not imagine how much danger this place was.
Therefore, people would generally enter the forest in a team.
If one fell behind the others, then that person would meet a tragic end. Unless one’s strength could one-handedly sweep through an army or perhaps had extremely good luck, then that would most likely be the case.
West of the Magical Beast Forest, Inner Clearing.
There were towering trees, numerous weeds, and a variety of beautiful forests containing magical beasts. After an evening and during the morning, the forest’s fog would rush forth, almost making the area completely pitch-dark.
A beautiful young lady in an appealing dress sat on a big branch, leaning against the tree. A pair of long legs, similar to pure white snow, were exposed to the air and chilled by the cold. Her eyes were shut, her breathing was even, and she slept comfortably.
Although she didn’t know what the tree’s species was, it was extraordinarily large and sufficient for her to lie down. At that moment, the leaves rustled, and a giant snake with a thick waist slithered from a different big tree to the position where the beautiful girl slept.
Its head was coarse with water sacks, and a pair of golden pupils coldly stared at its sleeping prey.
The snaked appeared nearby and aimed for the sleeping body since it could only completely bite its prey at a short distance.
As it readied itself, it listened to the sound of snoring. Suddenly, the giant snake pounced at a rapidly fast speed. At this moment, the sleeping beautiful girl opened her eyes, revealing a pair of red pupils. Her hands subconsciously caught the head of the snake, preventing her from being bitten.
The snake’s most deadly weapon was strangling, especially for non-toxic pythons. It would then quickly bite the enemy, and then exhaust all of its prey’s strength until its prey suffocated and died. This was its normal procedure of attacking foes.
The python’s attack was similar to an ordinary giant python’s. It quickly wrapped around its prey with its huge body, including the trunk which the prey laid down on.
The giant python’s speed was fast. After a bang, the branches of the tree were broken. As it opened its maws to gobble its enemy, it had discovered that its mouth could not move.
“Unexpectedly, a fifth-level magical beast attacked me!” The beautiful girl’s red eyes flashed a terrifying light as an intense violet aura burst out from her body. With her bare hands, she sliced the python into two as a pungent smell spread from its flesh.
The beautiful girl with red pupils dropped onto the ground, gasping with huge mouthfuls of air. Her blood-red eyes were restored to its original color. Holding a sword in her hand, she walked to the dead python, cut it apart, and excavated a bloody stone from its skull.
The sun had risen. Through the gaps between the leaves, sunlight fell onto the beautiful girl’s figure. The girl was tall and her clothes were sexy. Her long black hair was tied up, she wore a black leather coat and tight black shorts, and on her feet were a pair of refined boots.
The breasts on her chest were tightly squeezed together in order to hide them. Her long white legs were exposed to the air, thereby enhancing her sex appeal.
“Not bad!” At this time, a palm-sized creature suddenly emerged from the underbrush. Wearing a green dress, this creature had a human figure and six thin and transparent wings. However, other than those wings, it looked like an ordinary human.
But it was clearly a miniature version of a human.
If one took a closer look, then one could notice that her face was very beautiful as she was a child.
The beautiful girl glanced at the creature with an ecstatic expression. She looked around but didn’t see the person she wanted to see. She couldn’t help but sigh. “MM, how come you’re alone? Where is my Elder Sister? Is she in any danger?”
(TLN: MM is Chinese slang for mèimèi (妹妹 or 美美 or 美妹 or 美眉), little sister, young girl, pretty girl.)
“What MM, I’m Qian Qian!” The miniature child was dissatisfied with that title. She flapped its wings and landed on the beautiful girl’s head. She crossed her arms across her chest and slowly answered, “Don’t worry, the host is fine!”
The beautiful girl also calmed down. She quickly packed up her items, left the tree, and found a safe location. She withdrew water from the storage space and washed her hands. She took the miniature girl off of her head and placed her on her palm. She asked, “Where is Elder Sister? Why did you leave her side?”
The miniature girl in her palm glared at her with dissatisfaction. As she continued to cross her arms, she replied, “The host was worried that it would be dangerous for you since you were alone, so she allowed me to come with you. I didn’t expect to witness such a thrilling scene when I found you.”
She snorted, pointing her finger at the beautiful girl’s cheek as she screamed, “Zi Linglong, you just know how dangerous the fifth-level golden-eyed red-tailed python is. By becoming venomous, it could advance to becoming a sixth-level magical beast. If it did, then you would have met a tragic end.”
“Yeesh!” She suddenly screamed, “Zi Linglong, did you just have a breakthrough and became a seventh-level swordsman?”
“Yes.” The beautiful girl smiled and nodded.
These two people were the six years older Zi Linglong and System Qian Qian. While training in the Magical Beast Forest, they accidentally provoked the ant wave, causing the team to disperse while escaping. Later, Long Shiyan was worried that Zi Linglong could not cope with the dangers of the Magical Beast Forest. After making threats and promises, System Qian Qian went off to find Zi Linglong.
Zi Linglong was found slightly far away from the others.
“Is this amusing to you?!” System Qian Qian placed her hand at her small waist and poked Zi Linglong’s cheek with her finger. “A seven-level swordsman is almost equivalent to a fifth-level magical beast. Are you making fun of me? Aaah! You’re really no good at all!” She placed both hands on her hips as she resented Zi Linglong for making progress so quickly.
Zi Linglong didn’t care about being questioned. She frowned and leaned against a big stone. She said softly, “I was sleeping at the time. I didn’t know that a magical beast would attack me. Fortunately, I woke up during the most dangerous moment, otherwise, I’m not sure what would have become of me.”
“You are so annoying!” System Qian Qian sighed helplessly. “It’s very dangerous for people to be in this forest. We have to go back to the host and leave, or else she will be worried. But your current location is a bit far from over there. I have no problem flying over here, but it will be troublesome for you to go there.” She was discontent.
Zi Linglong raised her beautiful eyebrows and said to her, “Then, you should go back to report that I am safe and sound. I temporarily won’t be doing anything for a while…”
“No!” Waiting for her to finish, System Qian Qian interrupted her words as Zi Linglong wrinkled her lovely eyebrows. “There are several assassins in the vicinity. Although you performed well in school, how can you deal with them? You’re still a student and your vigilance is insufficient. It’s too dangerous to stay here alone.”
The roads in the jungle were complicated, and there were no safe trails to walk in. In order to cross the jungle, the best way was to quickly climb from tree to tree.
“I’ll shake you, MM. Where are you taking me?” Zi Linglong held a long sword and cut through a third-level python before she continued to follow her.
System Qian Qian halted her wings and stopped trembling. Rotating its body, she yelled at Zi Linglong, “I said that you’re allowed to shake me! You don’t believe that I care about you.”
Zi Linglong smirked as she chuckled. She replied, “Don’t get me wrong, you can just disregard my words.” After she said that, she reached out and let System Qian Qian fall on top of her palm.
System Qian Qian enjoyed her gentle caressing, and she couldn’t help but sigh. Human beings were such wonderful creatures. When she thought about the times when she was still a pearl, she didn’t know how much abuse she had suffered. But after she evolved, their two’s chins almost fell off in surprise. For a long time, they were speechless.
Needless to say, the attitude of these two people changed rapidly towards it. Even if she did something wrong, she only received a light punishment. It was really strange and she could not adapt to this new treatment right away. What was even more strange was that she always felt like something was missing.
“There are a large number of assassins nearby. Those three idiots, including that foolish Edgar, are not too far from our current position. I think we should join them first and then go to the host.” System Qian Qian paused and said, “Once we integrate with their team, the assassins won’t dare to make a move on you. As for the magical beasts, as long as you don’t encounter a powerful one, it’s not impossible to complete this school assessment.”
“Edgar and the two other people…” Zi Linglong’s pupils shrunk. “Qian Qian, do you mean that Elder Sister is also alone right now?”
System Qian Qian rolled her eyes and snorted. “I believe that the host is safer while being alone than when you’re alone. If she was in danger, she could rely on her skills to survive for a long time. Don’t belittle her experience! It’s extremely rich whereas you’re just like a newborn chick! Your skills are useless.”
“How could Elder Sister survive alone? Sleeping at night is very dangerous. If she met a magical beast like I just did a moment ago…”
“That’s the very reason why she told me to come over and find you!” System Qian Qian continued to give her a supercilious look. “In fact, I really didn’t want to come over. I don’t know why we are driving each other crazy, but you can rest assured since the host can enter her storage space at night. During the day, with her current combat power, not many would dare to make a move on her.”
Zi Linglong was relieved.
“You are needlessly worried. Now, the most important thing for you to do is to hurry and find those three idiots, and then quickly band together. I feel that those three’s breathing are faint and one of them is about to die. Hurry up, if they die, your sister might blame me.” System Qian Qian closed its eyes, her face was serious.
Zi Linglong’s expression changed as she concentrated on changing the color of her beautiful pupil. She had only been paying attention to her sister and did not know that the others were in danger. She only now realized she didn’t understand teamwork well enough! Without saying any more, she took System Qian Qian and departed quickly, disappearing into the depths of the jungle.
