Chapter 15 Xiao Ai’s Determination

Gong-Shu Jie's attitude was humble and respectful, completely different from that of a mighty Master Wuzhu in the old people's stories.

The little girl who witnessed everything was a bit stunned by this. In the old people's stories, when demons encountered the city's Master Wuzhu, they could only run away with their tails between their legs.

If Shuisheng village was not remote and was blessed with a Master Wuzhu, the white wolf in the mountain would not dare to bully people at all...... The old people occasionally discussed the white wolf like this.

Therefore, Xiao Ai always believed that compared to a Master Wuzhu, the Lord Mountain God was weak. This was the reason why she hurriedly headed here.

But now the girl found that the situation was not quite the same as the old people had said.

It was clear that the Lord Mountain God was more powerful than this Master Wuzhu facing the Lord Mountain God. Although she did not know the world too much, she could distinguish between the strong and the weak.

Now seeing the friendly conversation between the Lord Mountain God and this Master Wuzhu, the girl was completely sure of one thing. That is, the village elders were all talking nonsense! They didn't know the Lord Mountain God at all.

They said that the Lord Mountain God settled in the mountain to oppress mortals, forcing everyone to offer incense and sacrifices. And he was a man-eating demon.

However, after the village people sacrificed her to the Lord Mountain God, he did not want to eat her at all. He just let her go. And on her way back to the village, the Lord Mountain God ordered the monkeys to follow and take care of her.

On the contrary, the village adults, after seeing her return to the village, they tied her up and sent her back to the mountain, and scolded her for being greedy and afraid of death. In the end, it was the Lord Mountain God who did her justice.

And now, this Master Wuzhu also did not make a move to subdue the demon.

How could the Lord Mountain God be a vicious demon that eats people!

The real Lord Mountain God was definitely not like the village adults said.

And she decided that after returning to the village, she must find a way to eliminate everyone's prejudice of the Lord Mountain God, to let everyone understand that the Lord Mountain God was not as terrible as they thought.

She made this decision with firmness of will.

At this time, Lu Heng and Gong-Shu Jie's conversation also came to a conclusion. The black-robed Wuzhu bowed his hand, "In that case, I will go back to pursue the devil seed."

The huge white wolf nodded calmly, "Please, Wuzhu Gong-Shu."

Seeing Gong-Shu Jie rising from the wind and disappearing from view, Lu Heng finally sighed with relief.

The conversation with Gong-Shu Jie did not involve anything important. Both sides were wary of each other, so what they talked about was basically related to the devil seed that Gong-Shu Jie was hunting.

The devil seed was in the vicinity of Thousand Needles City, and after it was defeated by Gong-Shu Jie, it fled to this direction. Now Gong-Shu Jie has lost it, he could only feel that the devil seed was hiding near the Cold Feather Mountain.

Gong-Shu Jie thought that the devil seed was scared by the spiral clouds over the Cold Feather Mountain and did not dare to appear. It may hide in the body of some living creature.

Next, he had to chase around the Cold Feather Mountain for a long time, so he told Lu Heng in advance and wanted to get Lu Heng's permission. After Lu Heng allowed him to pursue in the mountain, he left the Mountain God Temple.

The conversation between them was not long, but Lu Heng still had a general idea of this black-robed Wuzhu. He thought that Gong-Shu Jie's thinking circuit seemed a bit different from normal people. 

During the conversation, Gong-Shu Jie gave Lu Heng the feeling that he was somewhat similar to some kind of nerd who stayed at home all the time, almost insulated from socializing, and not very good at communicating with strangers. So Gong-Shu Jie wanted to ask but did not directly ask Lu Heng's origin. He was just like a topic terminator.

No wonder this guy behaved so cautiously, it seemed he was also clear about his weakness of not being good with words, and was afraid to accidentally offend Lu Heng.

Shaking his head, Lu Heng then lowered his head to look at the girl at his feet.

In the process of his conversation with Gong-Shu Jie, the little girl had been standing at his feet, not moving, very well behaved.

Now seeing Lu Heng look down, the girl kowtowed quickly to salute. But Lu Heng's front paw flicked and a breeze blew, and the girl could not kneel down.

"There is no need to kneel in front of me," Lu Heng said, "and no need to kneel in the future."

The girl froze for a moment, feeling the invisible breeze in the air that restricted her movement, and nodded her head.

Lu Heng then began to ask, "Wuzhu Gong-Shu said he met you outside the mountain about an hour ago......that is, after you met Wuzhu Gong-Shu, you immediately came into the mountain to inform me. Were you afraid that I will be killed by Wuzhu Gong-Shu?"

The girl subconsciously nodded, but then hastily shook her head.

"No, I knows that Lord Mountain God is divinely powerful, surely ......"

"Okay, stop it," Lu Heng interrupted the girl and said, "Stop these fake words. Even if you really said something to make me angry, I will not eat you. Even if I want to eat people to cultivate, you are not enough to fill the gap between my teeth."

Lu Heng's words were the truth.

Since he used the heavenly thunder to cultivate in the past six months, his body size had become larger and larger. Originally he was only two meters high, but now he was taller than the Mountain God Temple. This little girl was small enough for him to swallow in one gulp.

Xiao Ai then timidly smiled and lowered her head.

Lu Heng looked at her, thought about it and said, "You are not afraid of me, it is a bit surprising. I thought all the people in your Shuisheng village were the same. Okay, take out the mountain god sign, I'll give you something."

Hearing Lu Heng's command, the girl hurriedly took off the mountain god sign and respectfully handed it to the Mountain God.

But Lu Heng did not take it, he just looked down at the small mountain god sign, slowly inhaled a breath and then exhaled. A ray of wish power along with the wind went into the mountain god sign.

Xiao Ai saw a flash of emerald green light, and then the mountain god sign no longer felt cold. The girl was a little surprised, though she did not know what happened.

Lu Heng also did not explain, "You can go back. With this mountain god sign, the mountain beasts will not attack you."

After saying that, Lu Heng dived into the ground again and continued to cultivate. He had not yet absorbed the thunderbolt power in his body. He just barely stabilized it, so he had no time to delay.

As for the wish power he gave the little girl, it would enable the little girl to be less sick. Lu Heng did not mind giving her some rewards because of her good intention.

Anyway, he would not use the wish power from now on.
