“It’s the monkeys,” as the little girl murmured, the adults’ expressions changed.
In this dark forest, even the experienced hunter Wang Laoliu was not sure what was following behind them. But the girl was very sure that it was monkeys. Everyone had just left the Mountain God Temple and Lord Mountain God seemed intent on defending this little girl.
The village chief silently paused his cane and decided to talk to the girl’s eldest uncle, Cripple Ai. He would not let Cripple Ai’s family bully this homeless girl.
Thinking of this, the old village chief said, “Well, let’s go.”
He glanced at the young men around him and said, “Whether it’s a monkey or a tiger, they won’t rush over after seeing so many people. Just stay close and don’t stray off alone.”
Everyone subconsciously obeyed the village chief, and put away the anxiety and nervousness in their hearts temporarily to continue the journey. While walking in the forest, everyone was much closer, fearing that they would be separated and then caught by a beast.
As the villagers gradually left the Cold Feather Mountain, shortly afterwards Lu Heng inside Mountain God Temple also received the news back from the monkeys.
The group of villagers had gone down and no one was bullying the little girl.
This news gave Lu Heng some peace of mind.
He was really worried that the little girl named Xiao Ai would be bullied by the villagers when she returned, so he deliberately said some words to take care of the girl before he drove away villagers.
After all, the reason why this little girl was sacrificed was the original wolf demon’s need. Now that Lu Heng has crossed over, the matter was more or less associated with him. It was great that this problem could be resolved, otherwise he would feel guilty.
Now that this matter was perfectly resolved, Lu Heng went to practice once again after diving into the ground.
However, today he was different from the original wolf demon, he no longer absorbed the spiritual energy in the earth veins. The previously absorbed thunderbolt power surged among his limbs and bones, filling up Lu Heng’s body to the point of exploding. And he digested this power incomparably slowly, trying to absorb the thunderbolt power completely.
But in the process of absorption, Lu Heng gradually felt his limit, because the power from the thunderbolt could not simply be directly refined into magic power.
This thunderbolt power was completely different from the earth vein aura. It was stubborn like an unchanging iron stone; no matter how Lu Heng knocked and refined, he could not change its thunderbolt nature.
The good thing was that Lu Heng, after some experimenting, discovered that this special lightning power behaved similarly to his demon power. It seemed to use the same type of magic.
So Lu Heng had no choice and could only continue to digest the thunderbolt power and store it as a new “demon power”.
Gradually, the power in his body was divided into three distinct types: The demonic power that was cultivated for two hundred years, the incense wish power that was accumulated for eighty years by the offerings of the mountain people, and the new thunderbolt power.
Among these three powers, the thunderbolt power had the least amount, but it gave Lu Heng the strongest and most frightening feeling, like a heart-stopping sensation.
Although the amount of strength was huge, 200 year of cultivated demonic power which had been slowly gained by the previous wolf demon was completely lackluster when compared to this heavenly thunder power.
Therefore, Lu Heng felt that he might be able to try a new direction of cultivation.
For example, with the absorption of thunder power as the main way of cultivation, he may be able to come out of a completely different path from the demons……
Ten days later, Lu Heng, who had finally absorbed all the thunder power in his body, emerged from the ground.
Now the thunder power in his body had grown much stronger. Although in terms of quantity, it was still far from the two hundred years’ demon power, Lu Heng was confident in it.
And during these ten days, he finally repaired his cracked body completely, so he could move freely and no longer had to guard this Mountain God Temple.
He raised his head to the sky and gave a long howl. The long wolf whistle spread far away in the mountain, stirring up countless echoes, just like a group of wolves howling.
This funny echo made Lu Heng laugh.
He was in a very good mood after his first successful practice.
He ran directly through the mountains, not using the Mountain God’s power to shrink the ground, but running wildly like an ordinary beast.
The two-meter-tall white giant wolf was like a silver lightning bolt, hurriedly passing through the mountain paths and cliff walls. All the birds and beasts seen along the way were scared and scattered, and the quiet mountain immediately became lively.
In the end, after stirring up half the lives of Cold Feather Mountain, Lu Heng finally arrived at his destination, the largest river in the mountain.
The river was about three feet wide and passes through Shuisheng Village and Cold Feather Mountain, and finally disappeared at the other end of Cold Feather Mountain. Not only did it support the villagers of Shuisheng Village, but it was also an important source of drinking water for the beasts in the mountain.
When Lu Heng walked to the river, the beasts that were originally lying on the river drinking water all fled in fear. Now only Lu Heng could be seen on both sides of this large river.
But he did not care, just standing at the riverside and looking down at his own reflection in the river. In the reflection of the river, the silvery-white giant wolf was awe-inspiring and heroic, just like the beasts of myth and legend, without the slightest hint belonging to the demons and evil spirits.
This body was not bad. Lu Heng said in his heart.
But he didn’t come here to enjoy his appearance. After standing by the river and looking at it for a while, Lu Heng then opened his mouth wide and took a deep breath at the river in front of him.
Then, the power of Mountain God was activated. Instantly the river churned, and one after another fish fluttered and leaped up from the river, flying towards Lu Heng’s mouth.
One, two, three…… These leaping river fish, regardless of their size, instantly disappeared into the white wolf’s terrifying blood mouth, without the action of chewing.
After eating fifty river fish, Lu Heng was finally stuffed. And he stop the power of Mountain God, the river that was rippling and churning finally calmed down.
Under the bright sunshine, Lu Heng, who had eaten and drank enough, was in a good mood.
As a wolf demon that had cultivated for two hundred years, although Lu Heng could go on without food for a long time, the maintenance of the demon body would become difficult if he did not eat all the time.
He actually did not like this way of eating.
But there was no restaurant in this Cold Feather Mountain. Even if he went down to the Shuisheng village to find offerings, he thought the offerings made by the villagers were only enough to stuff his teeth.
“Being a demon is so hard. I need to hurry up and cultivate a human form so that I can eat a big meal.” He thought.
Lu Heng turned away, and his pace was as slow as an old man walking in the park. It took a long time to return to Mountain God Temple.
Then, Lu Heng started a new round of cultivation.
