Chapter 61: Generosity

Translator: Sparrow Translations Editor: Sparrow Translations

’’Stop talking...’’ Ji Guang frantically reminded. But it was too late, the Winged Sea Leopard had

already heard Ding Bu'Er's voice. With this, it kicked the other lucky survivor to one side, and

pounced in Mo Wuji's direction.

’’Everyone attack!’’ As the snarling Winged Sea Leopard sprang towards them, Ji Guang

instinctively raised his glistening blade, facing his rabid foe with fiery defiance in his eyes. Gao

Juan and the injured Sun Liyan followed suit. Although Ding Bu'Er was weaker than the rest,

but he had caused this situation to develop, hence he rushed forward without hesitation too.

Out of the five of them, only Mo Wuji hung back. Not only did he hang back, but he stood

completely still. He did so not out of the fear of death, but he was observing the surroundings

ever since he heard Ji Guang describe the Arrow Shooting Beast. The combined effort of four

men should be able to keep the Winged Sea Leopard under control, so it meant little if he did not

participate. Instead, Mo Wuji expressed greater concern for the Arrow Shooting Beast that hurt

Sun Liyan. Direct attacks are easy to dodge, but it's much harder to avoid sneak attacks. The

presence of a camouflaged Arrow Shooting Beast worried Mo Wuji more.

Indeed the events played out almost exactly as what Mo Wuji predicted it to be: Ji Guang and Co.

basically absorbed the attacks of the Winged Sea Leopard. While the Winged Sea Leopard

possessed a high level of brute strength, it lacked mobility. Out of the four that surrounded it,

three of them, excluding Ding Bu'Er, were battle-hardened with plenty of experience. Taking

advantage of this, they fought to a standstill with the Winged Sea Leopard. However, gaps

began to show in their offensive. The Winged Sea Leopard seized the opportunity and leveraged

on its size to charge ferociously at them. Sun Liyan's injuries acted up, and within a few

minutes Ding Bu'Er's lack of strength started to show. Unable to stand up against the force that

hit him, Ding Bu'Er was knocked back and left a gap behind. The Winged Sea Leopard saw this,

and snapped at the opportunity, biting at Ding Bu'Er.

Unfortunately, Ding Bu'Er's repetitive moves had no way of adapting to the situation. As he was

about to be eaten by the Winged Sea Leopard, Mo Wuji let go of all restraint and was about to

leap forward. At that moment, a black shadow shot forth like an arrow, piercing through the air

towards Ji Guang.

Once Mo Wuji noticed that Ji Guang was also heading to rescue Ding Bu'Er, he immediately

turned around to face the arrow. Now he could focus on blocking the sneak attack.

’’Ding!’’ The jet black arrow deflected off Mo Wuji's drawn blade. Fortunately, he was already at

Channel Opening Stage Level One, thus he could dissipate the great force that accompanied the

arrow. If he were in his pre-cultivation state, this force would have been sufficient to blow him

away.

After successfully shielding Ji Guang from the black arrow, Mo Wuji kicked hard against the

ground, directly pouncing at a piece of exposed coral. He observed the jet black arrow

originating from this particular piece. Putting one and one together, he inferred that this was

the Arrow Shooting Beast. Against such a vile and cunning creature, fighting from a distance

would be looking for death.

Being Channel Opening Stage Level 1, coupled with 27 opened meridians, although he had not

progressed to the next level, Mo Wuji's explosiveness was off the charts. A distance of over 10m

was covered in a second. His long blade tore through the air with a whoosh.

The unexpected attack caught the Arrow Shooting Beast by surprise. Never had it considered

the possibility that Mo Wuji could block its arrow. Combined with the fast reaction time of Mo

Wuji, the beast could only watch helplessly as the blade cut through its flesh.

While the cut appeared on the coral, but there was the sensation of slashing through flesh. A

stream of fresh blood flowed out, and the coral transformed into a shadow once again,

disappearing from under the blade.

Other than the slight breeze that followed, Mo Wuji did not sense any trace of the Arrow

Shooting Beast anymore. Right below where the piece of coral was, lay a puddle of striking red

blood. Guessing that the Arrow Shooting Beast would not emerge again, he swiftly turned to

help Ji Guang and Co., and at this instant he heard the Winged Sea Leopard let out a violent roar.

Ji Guang's curved sword had severed off the Winged Sea Leopard's lower jaw, and fresh blood

spurted out of the wound. Full of rage, the Winged Sea Leopard lost its composure, with the two

blades of Gao Juan and Sun Liyan protruding out of the back of its neck subsequently. The giant

carcass of the animal fell, crushing a large piece of coral on the ground.

Ji Guang paid no attention to the slain Winged Sea Leopard, but instead walked in front of Mo

Wuji, thanking Mo Wuji with a bow, and said, ’’Brother Mo, thank you for saving my life again.’’

He knew that Mo Wuji helped him to deflect the arrow from the Arrow Shooting Beast while he

was busy saving Ding Bu'Er's life. That arrow could have gone through his neck, fatally

wounding him.

’’Brother Ji, since everyone's part of the team, it's natural for us to look out for each other.

Moreover, if it weren't for you, Bu'Er would likely be dead by now.’’ Mo Wuji replied with a

smile. But deep down everyone understood that it was Ji Guang that saved himself. If Ji Guang

did not step out to save Ding Bu'Er, then Mo Wuji definitely would not have gone to help Ji

Guang block the arrow, instead choosing to go to the aid of Ding Bu'Er.

’’Brother Mo, I'll be your friend from now on.. I previously thought that you were trying to take

advantage of us, but it looks like I've been too narrow minded. If it were not for you hiding

behind, waiting for the Arrow Shooting Beast, Brother Ji would not have survived this ordeal.’’

The silent Sun Liyan finally took the initiative to speak to Mo Wuji.

’’Let's conclude the niceties here, and focus on searching for the Winged Sea Leopard eggs.’’ Ji

Guang gestured to the team, and took point in the search.

It did not take much effort for them to find a coral cave with a smooth platform. The cave was

gigantic, with a height and breadth of over 3.2m. Even before taking a step into the cave, all five

of them could smell a fishy odor. ’’This is the place!’’ Ji Guang exclaimed, ’’This cave should be a

temporary nest for Winged Sea Leopards to hatch its eggs. They will abandon the cave and leave

within four months.’’ The five entered one by one, and quickly approached the deepest recesses

of the cave. A towering nest made of an assortment of beast fur welcomed them in the depths of

the cave. Six eggs lay snugly in the centre of the nest.

These should be the eggs of a winged sea leopard, but what puzzled Mo Wuji was that five out of

the six egg was around the size of a volleyball, but the sixth was only a third the size of the

others. On top of that, the five large eggs had beautiful black and white stripes on them, while

the small egg was dirt yellow, with the appearance of a slightly larger chicken egg. ’’Our luck is

quite good time time, each of us gets one large egg. That puny one shouldn't be a Winged Sea

Leopard's egg, it might be something the Winged Sea Leopard picked up elsewhere. Does

everyone agree if we give that to Brother Mo too?’’ Ji Guang immediately settled the distribution

of the loot.

Ding Bu'Er and Mo Wuji naturally had no objections; Sun Liyan and Gao Juan agreed as well.

They were completely aware of Mo Wuji's level of strength. Moreover, they owed a great part to

Mo Wuji for them to be able to reach this far safely.

Unexpectedly, Mo Wuji laughed and said, ’’No need for that, I'll only take this small egg. Bu'Er

gets one large egg, while you three split four eggs among yourselves. After all, it was Brother Ji

that led us to this location.’’ After completing his sentence, he swiped the small egg and kept it

away. His objectives had been met long ago anyway. Without Ji Guang, he wouldn't have been

able to find this place, much less open 27 meridians on the way here. If he also did not have the

service disciple token that Qin Xiangyu gave him, Mo Wuji would have not gone against

common sense to choose the small egg only, but keep one of each. After all, with a Winged Sea

Leopard's egg, he might have been able to become a service disciple. Since he now possessed

the token of a service disciple, the Winged Sea Leopard's egg no longer had any value to him. So

why not give it to Ji Guang instead. Sometimes being taken advantage of is not necessarily a bad

thing; this was a precious life lesson that Mo Wuji had learnt.

Even if he brought the Winged Sea Leopard's egg back with him, he would not bother to hatch

it. Killing the Winged Sea Leopard, and hatching its descendents to use as a ride. The whole

notion made Mo Wuji feel uncomfortable. Although he did not take part in the killing of the

Winged Sea Leopard, he felt the same nonetheless.

’’Okay, thank you Brother Mo for your generosity. You'll be my friend from now on, so if there's

anything that you need me to help me, please don't hold back.’’ Ji Guang graciously accepted Mo

Wuji's act of generosity, after all a single Winged Sea Leopard's egg was not enough for him.

Mo Wuji only got the chance to get a Winged Sea Leopard's egg only because he had made

greater contributions than Ji Guang, and as Ji Guang owed his survival to Mo Wuji.
