World Defying Dan God - Chapter 1
Dark clouds that shined with lightning covered the sky. A heavy rain is about to fall.
Inside Wohu City, Chen Xiang while looking up the sky muttered to himself: ’’I cannot delay any longer, I have to quickly find a good spirit herb, and otherwise it will be very hard to get another opportunity.’’
Chen Xiang had just turned sixteen this year, his build was more robust than others of similar age. Although he has a handsome face and youthful countenance, his eyes gave away maturity that is not present in others of his age.
Chen Xiang must pick up herbs for himself this time, although his grandfather is patriarch of the Chen family, he doesn't have any spiritual vein. He is incapable of practicing any martial arts. Therefore since childhood he has been diligently training his own body and also frequently going out to train secretly, he even once fought a tiger type beast. Although he is young, the amount of life and death experiences Chen endured made his state of mind far superior compared to his peers.
’’Isn't this Chen Xiang? It's going to rain heavily, will you still be able to exercise in this weather?’’ an old steward asked while coming towards him. Seeing the amount of hard work Chen Xiang did every day, the old steward could not help but admire him. However a sliver of regret could be seen in his gaze.
Chen Xiang worked very hard and practiced every day for six years. But he still remains in the 3rd level of Mortal martial realm, and other children of Chen family of similar age have already entered into the 4th level of mortal martial realm, and some have even reached 5th level.
This is all because he doesn't have any spiritual veins, therefore the family doesn't attach any importance to him, and he is only treated as an ordinary member of the Chen family.
Although he doesn't have any spiritual veins, he was never discouraged by it, and had been diligently training himself, at least the process of trying still allowed him to feel a sense of accomplishment.
’’Old Ma, I was just going to pick some herbs.’’ Chen Xiang laughed and ran up to the old steward. He even grabbed the steward's whip.
’’Useless, you do not have any spiritual veins, no matter how hard you practice you still won't be able to advance!’’ That old steward shook his head with a sigh.
Regarding such words, he has heard it all his life, but he still insisted that in any event he will not give up.
’’Xiang Er, don't go, today's weather is no good!’’ At this time, a middle-aged man arrived.
Chen Xiang while curling up his lips, said: ’’Father, picking herbs in rainy days is a good opportunity, at least no one will try to snatch them.’’
The middle-aged man was Chen Xiang's father, Chen Tianhu, a very famous and formidable martial artist and also one of the most promising candidates in the Chen family to inherit the position of patriarch. Though his son was somewhat crippled, he had always encouraged Chen Xiang, and also from time to time provided him with some precious pills. But it still didn't have any effect on Chen Xiang.
’’Here.’’ Chen Tianhu smiled helplessly and threw a small box towards Chen Xiang.
Chen Xiang took the box without looking inside, he knew that inside it was a pill. He said with a smile ’’Thank you dad, now I don't need to steal the chickens that Old man Ma has raised for his health.’’
That comment made the steward's whole face bitter and astringent, he didn't think that his chickens had already been targeted.
Looking at the vanishing back of Chen Xiang, Chen Tianhu can only let out a Sigh, although he has a very high status within the Chen Family, the elders in charge of managing the pills were very strict as they are precious resources for practicing, and he can only save some of them and give it to Chen Xiang. But their therapeutic effect actually was not that significant as they were too few in number to affect Chen Xiang.
What father doesn't hope for his son to become successful in life? But Chen Tianhu does not have any other methods, all he can do is acquire some pills for Chen Xiang.
'Immortal devil cliff'. This is a very desolate place, at this moment a teenager with a bare chest is climbing down the cliff.
Under the heavy downpour, Chen Xiang was actually climbing down the cliff! This is a very dangerous matter, as the 'Immortal devil cliff' is very deep and below is filled with a type of black Qi that gave off the feeling of death, therefore many people don't want to approach this place.
But Chen Xiang actually came here to pick some herbs and was gradually descending the ravine slowly approaching the bottom. If others were to know about this, they would laugh at him for being a madman. At the place where birds don't even shit and perennial filled with death Qi, it was hardly an ideal location for spirit herbs.
Chen Xiang was not stupid, he knew that this 'Immortal devil cliff' had been present for many, many years and is always filled with death Qi. And no one knows since when.
According to common sense, this lethargic place doesn't have any spirit herbs, but Chen Xiang actually doesn't believe that, he knows when things reach to extreme there is bound to have some reasons, he believes this escarpment certainly must have a legendary spirit herb.
'Hell Spirit Grass' This spirit herb sounds to be very deadly, but it is a very strange herb which makes a dead skeleton regrow its flesh and is a very effective spirit herb, ordinarily grown in an ancient battlefield or cemeteries where the death Qi is abundant.
Only on rainy days will the black Qi sink due to rainfall, so Chen Xiang was able to see some of the deep precipice, he wanted to go deep into this place so that he can search for 'Hell Spirit Grass'.
Although he does not need 'Hell spirit grass', but if he got this sacred herb, he can trade it for many precious pills, which will allow him to be free from his current predicament and have formidable strength.
Raindrops continuously falls on Chen Xiang, making him feel very uncomfortable while also making the rocks on the cliff-side very slippery. This makes him even more cautious, carefully climbing down the cliff so as not to fall.
Nobody knows what is at the bottom of the 'Immortal devil cliff', there have been many who have gone down, but the number of people that have climbed back up was zero, to fall down means death!
Two hours pass and the rain continued to fall. Chen Xiang has been exercising for many years and just by relying on his strong body, he went down several dozen feet down into the deep precipice.
Chen Xiang found a good temporary shelter, at this time he carefully observed his surroundings, suddenly, he saw something which made his heart beat excitedly.
'Hell spirit grass!' Chen Xiang excitingly shouted, gazing straight down below he saw something similar to a white sesame seed cake. He was confident this was the legendary 'Hell spirit grass'.
The whole ravine was filled with Black Death Qi, and to top it all off the color of Hell spirit grass grass and the cliff was the same, and itt made this herb very difficult to spot.
Chen Xiang was very excited, he calmed himself down while resting for a moment before slowly climbing down again.
Not too long after Chen Xiang arrived next to that 'Hell spirit grass'. He swallowed his saliva while looking at the white 'Hell spirit grass' that has the size similar to a washing bowl, and he could feel the vigorous life force emitted by the 'Hell spirit grass'.
Chen Xiang can only pick the 'Hell sprit grass' with one hand. He estimated that this 'Hell spirit grass' has been growing for more than a thousand years. Selling it in the auction will earn him an astronomical sum.
Chen Xiang picked the spirit grass up after quite a bit of effort, putting it inside his storage pouch, he grinned: ’’Haha! It's time for this daddy's salted fish to stand up from failure!’’
[PF: i feel he's talking about his fish instead of saying he is a fish, i hope he's not calling himself a salted fish anyways.]
[TLN: 老子咸鱼翻身的时候到了 it actually translated as above and here MC is referring himself as father]
So long as he sells this 'Hell spirit grass', he will be able to purchase a lot of good rank pills, then he will be able to advance by leaps and bounds!*
[PF: argghhhhh repetition over 9000!]
The rain was gradually easing up, Chen Xiang is very content right now, so he does not continue to search the huge cliff, instead chooses to climb back up. After all his strength is very limited, climbing up was also very hard and dangerous.
Climbing for more than half an hour, suddenly the precipice started to slightly tremble and shake!
Chen Xiang's heart was palpitating then immediately became heavy with a bad premonition. As he looked above he saw many small stones falling from the cliff-side. They fell into the bottomless precipice, while the original slightly trembling cliff started to shake more severely.
’’Damn, I finally got the 'Hell spirit grass' god you cannot joke with me ah!’’ The sudden cliff shake could not help but make Chen Xiang curse bitterly.
He wanted to remain calm so he made himself clinch onto the rugged cliff, otherwise he would fall down from the shock.
Escalating tremors made Chen Xiang gradually feel despair. As he looked up again he saw a giant piece of rock falling towards him meanwhile the rock he was holding also started to crack down.
’’God, I just got the Hell spirit grass, you brought me down to hell, are you f**king with me!’’ Chen Xiang could not help but curse , but also this time, the black Qi started to rise up, suddenly the rock split making Chen Xiang fall...........
’’Ah -’’ Chen Xiang's body fell into the abyss filled with black Qi, unwillingness tinged in his shout......
In unknown amount of time later Chen Xiang finally opened his eyes. He could unexpectedly see light within the abyss, and what astonished him the most is that water was present here. He was also able to breathe!
Chen Xiang floated to the surface, he saw he was present in a pool shining with a holy-like white aura.
What shocked Chen Xiang even more is that not far from him unexpectedly there are two stunning girls with long hair sitting on the ground.
And even more shocking than before was that these two celestial beauties were bare naked! The two perfect flawless jade bodies are unreservedly visible in front of him!
[PF: ( ͡°͜ʖ ͡°) ]
Those two with red face were like meticulously carved jade statues, without the slightest flaw. Their twin peaks were abundant alongside their thin and tender waists. They were beautiful and breath-taking ...... this was Chen Xiang's first time seeing women as beautiful as them.*
The fragrant and stunning scene had a great impact on Chen Xiang, making him fully petrified, his whole face flushed red and his heart and breathing seemed to have stopped!
The two girls hunkered down and looked at each other, after some time they finally found Chen Xiang but they totally disregarded him, and seeing this Chen Xiang had a despised kind of feeling, as he was totally disregarded by the two beauties.
After a period of absent-mindedness, Chen Xiang was able to see that the abyss is devastated. While many cracks and pits still visible, broken stones are scattered on the ground Aside from broken stones there are pieces of scattered white silk, from the looks of it a battle had been fought here. He speculated that it was these two girls that were the cause of the battle and therefore lead to torn clothes.
Chen Xiang although did not know about why these two stunning alluring girls fought here in this abyss, but he has seen that the two women are quite formidable, and there strength is beyond the scope of his knowledge, even able to shake the earth and move mountains with their power.
’’These two are the roots of troubles, they even shook the cliff and plunged me down, but fortunately I had some good luck and did not die!’’ Chen Xiang scolded in his heart, but he was curious about these two mysterious girls.
Chen Xiang while watching the two with flawless jade body, slowly walked towards the two women.
The abyss next to the 'Immortal devil cliff' is called hell, but this time for Chen Xiang this hell is similar to a celestial realm. There is a deep pool filled with a holy white aura and the most important is that beside this pool there are two stunning naked girls.
Only at this time the two girl realized that not far from them a pair of fiery red eyes glancing at them, feeling both shame and anger started to rise inside their heart.
