At the moment the tree was collapsing, a giant appeared out of nowhere. Han Jinclicked his tiptoes on the arm of the giant and landed safely after turning his body over with the help of it. He scampered away without delay, leaving the giant there, pounding its arms down heavily on the dying bear.
The bear of Earth was extremely tired out with only few breaths left. It had no strength to fight back anymore and just stayed there, enduring the thump of the giant.
The thorns had disappeared, wild oxen thudded down on the ground one after anotherwith leaves, sand and detritus flying everywhere. They didn’t get up until a moment later. However, no matter how sharp the thorns were, and even though the oxen were still dizzy and staggering, only one was punctured through in its belly, all the other oxen were not hurt a bit owing to their exceptional advantage of thick skin.
But the fight in front of them confused them. They moved forward slowly. Han Jin run another ten metersor more awaywhen he found no ox was running after him, and hid himself behind a big tree before hesummoned his wooden army calling charm.
The mighty bear of Earth breathed its last breath and finally fell down in the pool of blood, surrounded by the howling wild oxen, which were hitting it with their heads and treading on its body as if it was their toy. Two of themdashed to the calf and kept licking it with tongues. But the calf didn’t react at all.
A moment later, one of the wild oxen let out a long grievous roar and turned around to the depth of the woods. The other oxen all followed it and disappeared in the woods.
“What a waste…” Han Jincracked a bitter smile. He had never expected those wild and aggressive oxen would turn totally different after the death of the bear of Earth, otherwise, he would not waste his wooden army calling charm at all!
Whiz! Sound came from the branches suddenly and Sunier jumped down from the tree.”What are these holy animals?” Han Jin asked in a low voice.
“Iron Bull, seventh grade holy animal.” Sunier replied with her eyes sweeping across Han Jin up and down:”Are you all right?”
“Seventh grade holy animal?”Han Jin opened his eyes widely and rushed to the bear before his words died away. He kicked it to make sure it had been dead. “Sunier!” he cried.
At this time, Moxinke went out from the other side of the woods, and when he saw the body of the bear in front of Han Jin, he couldn’t help but shouting:”Isn’t it the bear of Earth that had beenshot blind in one eye by you, Sunier?!”
“Well.” Sunier walked over it in slow pace and smiled at Han Jin after looking at it for a moment:”You must be very happy now, aren’t you?” She knew that Han Jin could not only absorb energy from magic crystals, but also from food. He had once told her that the higher grade the holy animal was, the more energy its meat would be. Thus, as an eighth grade holy animal, the bearmust have energy more than an ordinary magic crystal.
“So this is really the bear of Earth,an eighth grade holy animal?”Han Jinasked with his eyes flashing. Usually he was the last one that would talk crap, but now, he was too excited to believe it and must make sure by himself.
Moxinke strode over to it and after a roaring, he pierced his long sword into the chest of the bear. A yellow magic crystal the size of half a fist appeared in front of them. Han Jin stared at it unblinkingly with the thoughts in his inner heart heaving and subsiding. Energy! He thought to himself. Moxinke had thousands of Jia’s energy, which had already drew Han Jin’s admiration greatly. Now, the energy contained in this yellow magic crystal could be counted by unit of xuan! As for how much it exactly contained, Han Jain couldn’t figure it out because the energy he owned at present was far less than that contained in the magic crystal.
Moxinke passed it to Sunier, who took it carefully and said with smile after observing it for a while:”It’s more money-worth than ten times of all we’ve got from this woods.”
“Yes, we’ve made a great fortune again!” Moxinke laughed.
“How I wish we canmake a fortune like this everyday.” Sunier said and put it into her space ring:”Moxinke, try to take the bear back.”She said.
“Don’t bother.”Han Jin waved his hand. The standing giant strode over to him and threw the bear of Earth onto its back with its two hands grabbing at it.
“What’s this?”Sunier showed an amazed look suddenly and walked to the calf. She stared at it intently for a while and said:”It’s still alive.”
“Then take it with us, too.”
“Wait.”Sunier waved her hand:”Release a magic for it first!”
“What magic?” Han Jin was stunned.
“The one that you often released for Moxinke.”
“Why?” Han Jin seemed a bit reluctant.
“Although Iron Bulls are seventh grade holy animals, they are not very aggressive and they never take the initiative to attack others. If they have this calf to take care of, they will not move to other place. Which means, we will have good neighbors.”
“Good for what?”
“If wecome across any holy animal that we can’t deal with in the future, we can lead it to the territory of the Iron Bulls…Do you understand?”
Han Jin looked at Sunier skeptically. But he knew Sunier was very experienced in living in woods. Anyway, a charm of spiritrefreshment would only cost him thirty yuan’s energy. There was no need for him to act stingily. He waved his arm and drew a charm in the air,which was then infused into the body of the calf soundlessly.
They waited there for a long time, but the calf had no reaction at all. Sunier turned it over and saw a deep wound on the other side of its neck. The wound was so deep that even the bone could be seen.”It was hurt too seriously.” She sighed.
“Are you sure it can bringus great benefits, Sunier?” Han Jin asked slowly.
“Of course, as long as you can save it.”
“Then let me have another try.” After saying this, hemoved his finger in the air again. This time his action was extremely slow. The charm he was making was a medium-grade Art of Tao to release sacrificial materials for holy animals. Friars often use this art to cure their holy animals or help them in cultivation. Luckily, Han Jin was a master of miscellaneous knowledge. He knew a little about almost all of the arts of Tao. As for which art he would be concentrated on in the future, that was quite another matter.
The charm was finally finished after a long time. Strange symbols that could beseen by naked eyes were floating in the air and emitting faint white light. Han Jin let out a sigh of relieve and roared in a low and ponderous voice: “Go!”
Dazzling light appeared from the charm and wrapped the calf into it. When the white lightdispersed, the hooves of the calf suddenly trembled.
“It’s so effective! You… you can be a pastor.”Sunier said in exultation:”Hold the calf up, Moxinke. Be gentle!Let me bind up for it.”
Han Jin shrugged his shoulders. He wishedSunier was right. The charm of sacrificial materials for holy animals costed him more than two thousand yuan’s energy, and he didn’t want it to be a bad bargain.
