After reuniting with Zhi Xuan, the killers of the Mingyin Society disappeared, and the three were able to heal and rest in the inn, planning to enter the Kunlun Immortal Boundary.

After Yun Xi healed their injuries, he requested that Jiang Chao Ge give him the other half of the jade pendant.

Jiang Chao Ge just remembered that he promised Yun Xi to accompany him to Kunlun City and he would give him the jade, but he was really reluctant to let Yun Xi go.
So he pushed Yun Xi into a chair and said earnestly  “Yun Xi, when you get the jade pendant, where would you go, return to Qianlai City? Or Yingcheng?”

“Go back to my teacher.” As Yun Xi spoke, he turned his gaze to the side.
He is not used to looking into other people’s eyes, which makes him nervous and anxious.

“Is your teacher unable to protect himself, so you still look for him? Don’t you understand, your teacher gave me half of the Dragon Fish Jade, which means you follow me.”

“He didn’t say that.”

“Then what did he say?”

“He said that the jade pendant was in your hands, and I should go get it.”

“That’s all?”

Yun Xi nodded.

Jiang Chao Ge rubbed his hands together: “Don’t you understand what your teacher meant?”

Yun Xi frowned: “There is no other meaning.”

“It’s nothing else.
Why did he give me the jade? Isn’t it for you to help me?”

“I have already helped you.” Yun Xi lowered his head, “Give me the jade.”

“What if I don’t give it?” Jiang Chao Ge asked tentatively.

Yun Xi whispered aggrieved.

Jiang Chao Ge shook his head and said with a dry smile: “Oh, I’m joking, why wouldn’t I give it to you.
But if you just leave, how am I going to tell you about the other world? I have so many stories and I’ll teach you about new and strange things, so that you will never get tired of listening to it for the rest of your life.
You will be able to make things that other spirit tool masters can’t.”

Yun Xi was a little tempted, but hesitated, looking at him with suspicion.

“Well, I can teach you to make a few things from the other world over the next few days.”

Yun Xi’s eyes lit up: “Alright.”

“If you think it’s fun, you can accompany us to Kunlun Immortal Boundary, and I will tell you everything I know, and together we can make powerful weapons.”

“What kind of weapons?”

“I’ll tell you later.” Jiang Chao Ge patted him on the shoulder, and dragged Zhi Xuan to go shopping.

He bought materials such as magnets and needles to make compasses, as well as materials for making gunpowder like sulfur and charcoal, which were easy to obtain.
But Tianleng Continent had never opened a saltpeter mine, and they didn’t even know it existed.
However, it didn’t stop him.
He took a broken bowl from the inn and sneaked into several pig farms at night, scraping off a layer of white substance from the soil around the pigsty walls.
He collected a small amount of saltpeter overnight.
This amount of saltpeter was only enough to make a single firework, but it didn’t matter, he just wanted to show Yun Xi.

Back at the inn, Zhi Xuan squatted at the door like a puppy, waiting for him, and greeted him as soon as he saw him, “Why are you so smelly! Where have you been?”

Jiang Chao Ge laughed and said, “I went to clean the pigsty, that’s why I didn’t let you come.”

Zhi Xuan rolled his eyes at him, “Don’t hug me if you smell so bad.”

“I didn’t want to hug you either, come on and let’s go inside.”

Zhi Xuan followed him, the threshold of the building was too high for his short legs, which made it difficult for him to go in.
Jiang Chao Ge grabbed his arm and lifted him up, and he went over easily.
He seemed to find it fun and couldn’t help but laugh, but he immediately put on a serious face, “Go take a shower, you smell terrible.”

“Okay, I’ll go right away.” Jiang Chao Ge organized the things he bought, took a change of clothes and went to the bathroom.

The best thing about this inn is that there is an independent bathroom, and there are several bathtubs of different heights and sizes.
At this time, the night is still a bit cold, and it is just right to light up the fire.
As soon as he filled the water and lit the stove, Zhi Xuan came in, “I want to wash too.”

“Didn’t I just bathe you yesterday, it’s freezing, and your hair isn’t easy to dry, so you don’t need to bathe every day.”

“No, your stench must have spread to me.” Zhi Xuan wrinkled his nose and sniffed, “It stinks.”

Jiang Chao Ge smiled helplessly: “Sometimes it’s not a good thing to have a keen sense of smell.” He put Zhi Xuan into the shallow bathtub, and gently bathed his little predecessor.

Zhi Xuan raised his face, staring at Jiang Chao Ge intently.

Jiang Chao Ge said, “What are you looking at?”

“Looking at you.”

“Watch what I do.”

“I can watch it if I want.”

Jiang Chao Ge smiled.

Zhi Xuan asked: “Why don’t you take off your clothes?”

“Aren’t I bathing you first?”

Zhi Xuan scooped up some bath water and whipped it at him.

Jiang Chao Ge couldn’t dodge in time and his front became soaking wet.
He grimaced and looked at Zhi Xuan, “Why are you so bratty?”

Zhi Xuan’s shining golden pupils stared straight at him, and he ordered in a commanding tone, “Take them off.”

Jiang Chao Ge narrowed his eyes and said calmly, “I’ll give you a bath first.”

Suddenly, little bean Zhi Xuan unexpectedly transformed into an adult, water rushing out of the tub and spilling all over the ground.
Jiang Chao Ge was also splashed with water and stumbled backwards, falling onto his butt.
He stared at Zhi Xuan’s muscular bare chest, strong and slender waist, feeling nervous and dry-mouthed.
He tried to maintain his composure and said, “What are you doing? I just managed to heat the water.” 

Zhi Xuan stood up in the tub, his wet hair hanging down.
He took two steps forward and squatted in front of Jiang Chao Ge’s tall figure, his slender fingers pinching his collar.
He said softly, “Take off your clothes.”

Jiang Chao Ge grabbed his hand: “Zhi Xuan, stop making trouble.”

“I’m not making trouble, I want to bathe with you.”

“We always bathe together.”

“I want to look like this, and bathe with you.”

Jiang Chao Ge’s scalp tingled and he felt the urge to run away.
He had never seen Zhi Xuan like this before, even though they were the same person.
Facing a child and facing an adult man were two completely different things.

Zhi Xuan didn’t wait for his response, and reached out to pull his clothes.

Jiang Chao Ge pushed his hand away, and struggled to get up from the ground.
Zhi Xuan became upset, and threw himself on Jiang Chao Ge’s, his wet body immediately soaking Jiang Chao Ge’s even more, and yanked at his clothes.

Jiang Chao Ge became a little scared, he pushed Zhi Xuan hard, and said sharply: “Stop making trouble!”

Zhi Xuan was taken aback, with strands of hair draped over his forehead.
He looked lost for a moment, his expression swiftly changed to look a bit embarrassed.

Jiang Chao Ge thought that Zhi Xuan would get angry, but Zhi Xuan said in a very soft voice, “You are my female beast.”

Jiang Chao Ge said stiffly, “I’m not.”

“You are.”

“I’m not.”

“I have been waiting for you for tens of thousands of years,” Zhi Xuan stared at him without blinking.
“Yin Chuan said that my female beast may not really exist.
Not every exotic beast has the luck to see its own female beast.
I also once thought that it did not exist, but I think you are the one.”

Jiang Chao Ge said with some difficulty: “I really…”

“How do you know you’re not?”

Jiang Chao Ge didn’t know how to answer.

Zhi Xuan leaned over, hugged Jiang Chao Ge in his arms, and whispered: “Aren’t you willing to be my female beast?”

Jiang Chao Ge felt that his heart was violently hit, and he trembled.
Some chaotic voices in his mind were shouting, making him dizzy.
Zhi Xuan’s lonely tone made him feel uncomfortable all over.
Only Zhi Xuan could do such a direct, primitive, and unadorned way of courtship.
Zhi Xuan was essentially still an animal without human ethics and norms, doing whatever it wanted without reservation.
On the other hand, it was also sincere, never concealing anything.
This made Jiang Chaoge’s eloquence useless and it was difficult to resist.

Zhi Xuan tightened his arms: “Be my female beast, I will protect you for the rest of my life.”

Jiang Chao Ge felt his throat was blocked by something, whether it was rejection or acceptance, he couldn’t say.
He had heard all kinds of true and false confessions in his life, but Zhi Xuan’s words were the most unexpected, but extraordinarily sincere.

After waiting for a long time without a response, Zhi Xuan became impatient and said, “Just promise me! Anyway, you will mate with me, and then you will not only be my servant, but also my female beast.”

Jiang Chao Ge sighed: “Those are two different things, aren’t they.”

“It’s the same thing.”

Jiang Chao Ge said, “If we mate, does that make you my female beast? Then how many female beasts does Su Han have?”

Zhi Xuan said angrily, “Don’t compare me with that lustful beast!”

“Hey, you’ve learned another idiom.”

“Don’t change the subject!”

Jiang Chao Ge said helplessly, “Zhi Xuan, maybe we should wait until we see Yin Chuan before making any decisions.” He had no other choice but to rely on Yin Chuan, hoping that he had read thousands of books and could wake up Zhi Xuan.
After all, they were not only different species but also both males, so he couldn’t be his female beast.

Zhi Xuan snorted: “Alright, let Yin Chuan tell you.”

“Then can you let me go now.”

Zhi Xuan reluctantly released him.

Jiang Chao Ge glanced under Zhi Xuan, the size of his pillar was huge and intimidating.
Zhi Xuan didn’t have the slightest sense of shame, so he let Jiang Chao Ge look at it generously, who was terrified and quickly fled the room.

Zhi Xuan looked down and murmured: “Obviously I have a reaction to him.”

The next day, Jiang Chao Ge made a simple compass and gunpowder, and called the others to the outside to watch.

He made two small firecrackers using gunpowder, as materials were scarce.
However, it should be enough to scare these naive creatures.
He lit the fuse and threw the firecrackers into a box made of woven grass.
With a loud bang, the firecrackers blew a big hole in the box, startling the onlookers.
Some of the more sensitive beast creatures were so frightened that their fur almost stood on end.

Yu Ren Shu exclaimed in surprise, “What kind of sorcery is this?”

“It’s not any kind of sorcery.
This is one of the modern weapons in my world, called gunpowder.
I only made a small one as the materials were not enough, but with enough materials, it can blow up a wall that is one meter thick,” Jiang Chao Ge explained calmly.

Yun Xi’s eyes widened: “Really?”


Yu Ren Shu’s expression turned fearful, “Are you the only one who knows this kind of evil technique?”

“In our world, many people know about this, but I’m not sure about other people from different worlds,” Jiang Chao Ge replied, “Making simple gunpowder is relatively easy, but many ordinary people couldn’t be bothered to learn about it.
In addition, it’s easy to hurt oneself while making it.
He was trained by real bomb experts, so if he had enough materials, he could even make timed remote-controlled bombs.
Unfortunately, there was no chance of doing that in this world.

Yu Renshu had an anxious look on his face and said, “If this sorcery were to be learned by overseas foreign races, it would be a disaster for Tianleng Continent.” He suddenly remembered something and looked at Long Xiang.

Long Xiang glared at him and said, “Well, I’ve already seen it.
Why don’t you just kill me?”

Yu Ren Shu said: “I won’t kill you, but I hope that if one day you return to your hometown, you won’t spread this sorcery around.”

“I don’t even know where my hometown is.
Even if it were to spread, it wouldn’t be because of me,” Long Xiang retorted.

“Don’t argue, you two,” Jiang Chao Ge interrupted.
“I won’t tell you how to make gunpowder.”

Yun Xi walked over to him and looked at him eagerly, “Big brother, will you tell me?”

Jiang Chao Ge pulled out a simple compass and another small firecracker, held them in his palm, smiled and said, “If you accompany us to the Kunlun Immortal Boundary, I’ll have more useful and fun things to tell you.”

Yun Xi slowly stretched out a hand, grabbed the compass and small firecrackers, then quickly retreated to the corner, cherishing and examining them carefully.

Jiang Chao Ge reached into his pocket and took out the jade pendant, tossing it to Yun Xi.
“I keep my word.
I’ll give this to you too.
Tomorrow we’ll set off to the Kunlun Immortal Boundary.
If you don’t leave, then you’ll have to follow us.”

Yun Xi held the jade and nodded.

Jiang Chao Ge got up to leave, but Yun Xi suddenly grabbed his clothing, “How are you going to go to Kunlun Immortal Boundary?”

“We’ll go the same way we came,” Jiang Chao Ge replied.

“The Kunlun Immortal Boundary is always extremely cold and surrounded by fog.
Once you enter, it’s easy to get lost and never come back out again,” Yun Xi warned.

“That’s why I have prepared enough supplies.
With one divine-level exotic beast and two heaven-level exotic beasts, we shouldn’t get lost,” Jiang Chao Ge explained confidently.

Yun Xi  looked at him blankly for a few seconds before saying, “Actually, you guys don’t know anything and don’t have any plans, do you?”

Realizing he was exposed, Jiang Chao Ge felt embarrassed and replied, “Well, we’ve never been there before.”

“Have you never read books before?”

“What are you trying to say?”

Yun Xi stood up and brushed off his clothes.
“I’m going home.”

Jiang Chao Ge grabbed his collar.
“Come back here.
Don’t be so secretive.
If you know something, help us out.”

Yun Xi pushed Jiang Chao Ge’s hand away, and backed away: “I’m still young, so I don’t really want to die.”

Ruan Qiansu interjected, “Are you worried about the fog in Kunlun Immortal Boundary.
It’s said that the fog not only causes people to lose their way, but can also produce hallucinations, trapping people to their death.”

Zhi Xuan yawned, “That’s just fog.
I’ve stayed in it for hundreds of thousands of years, and I haven’t lost my way.”

Jiang Chao Ge exclaimed happily, “Yes, we have Zhi Xuan leading the way, we definitely won’t get lost.”

Yun Xi’s expression eased slightly, hesitated for a moment, and said, “Okay, I’ll go with you guys.”

Jiang Chao Ge laughed out loud, “Great!”

Yun Xi stretched out his hand: “Give me the whale storage bag, I want to check the supplies.”

Jiang Chao Ge handed it to him.

Yun Xi summoned out the storage bag, burrowed into it, and freaked out two seconds later, “Why is it so messy inside!”

“There are a lot of things.”

“We need to organize it! We have to organize it!” Yun Xi’s face turned red, rolled up his sleeves, and started moving things out.

Everyone looked at each other in confusion, and reluctantly helped Yun Xi with the preparations.

Yun Xi sorted out and counted the supplies, went out to purchase some things he deemed necessary, categorized and recorded everything, kept personal belongings separate, and triple-checked everything.
He spent the whole day working hard, while the others were too tired and went back to sleep.
He continued to diligently sort things out.

Jiang Chao Ge woke up twice in the middle of the night, as Yun Xi kept asking him about items, and eventually kicked him out after disturbing him the second time.

Due to Yun Xi’s persistence, their journey was postponed for two days before they could set off.

Going out from the west gate of Kunlun City led them into a continuous stretch of Kunlun Mountains.
Some joked that the west gate of Kunlun City was the gateway to the Western Heaven, and once they left, it would be difficult to return.
Usually only hunters enter or exit here, but they wouldn’t go too far into the mountains.
If anyone knew they were going to the Kunlun Immortal Boundary, they would probably think they were crazy.

Yu Ren Shu sat on Tian Rong’s neck, looking at the mist enveloping the Kunlun Mountains.
“The Kunlun Immortal Boundary has always been a sacred land in the Tianleng Continent, and is one of the most mysterious places.
No one has ever truly explored this mountain range.
Entering the Kunlun Immortal Boundary is like entering another world.
Who knows what’s inside or what’s going to happen? We might be lucky and find the Yin Chuan quickly, or it could take years, even a lifetime, and we might not even make it out alive.” He looked at everyone.
“Are you all prepared?”

Yun Xi blinked, “I, I think I’d better go back home.”

Jiang Chao Ge pulled him back.
“It’s too late to say that now.

Long Xiang said, “I’ll follow Brother Jiang.”

Ruan Qiansu smiled and said, “I’ve long since stopped hesitating.”

Yu Renshu chuckled, “That’s right, I have no other choice.
Entering the Kunlun Immortal Boundary at least allows me to evade the pursuit of the Mingyin Society and the Blood Slayer Sect.”

Jiang Chao Ge took a deep breath, “Let’s go.”

Tian Rong and Zui You jumped up and rushed towards the majestic and stretching Kunlun Mountains ahead.

“Do you guys not know where Bai Ze is?” Yun Xi widened his eyes, looking incredulous.

Jiang Chao Ge shrugged.
“That’s why we’re looking for it.”

“The Kunlun Mountains are boundless, and most places have not been explored.
It’s probably no longer part of the Tianleng Kingdom and is more of an unknown foreign world.
You don’t know where the weapon is, how can you find it?”

Zhi Xuan said, “If we get close, I can smell it.”

“How close?”

Zhi Xuan thought for a while, “Within a few dozen miles.”

Yun Xi’s voice changed, “That’s tantamount to finding a needle in a haystack.”

Zhi Xuan glared at him fiercely.
“Human, how dare you speak disrespectfully to me.”

Yun Xi curled up and said darkly, “I want to go home.”

Jiang Chao Ge laughed, “Don’t be so pessimistic, I believe we will definitely find it.” In fact, he wasn’t as optimistic as he was portraying, Yun Xi was right, they were looking for a needle in a haystack, but what they needed right now was hope, and they must not give up easily.

The next day, Yun Xi didn’t speak.
When he was silent, he was easily ignored by others.
Although he had an aggrieved appearance like he was being trafficked, he didn’t get the slightest sympathy.

After the sun went down, they entered the foggy mountain range, which was rumored to be a place where people were devoured without leaving any bones behind.
The darkness of night, in addition to thick fog, made the visibility extremely low, making it practically impossible to move forward, so they had to rest in place.

“Why is this mountain so quiet?” Tian Rong said worriedly, “Since entering the fog, we haven’t heard any strange beasts.”

“The fog also affects hearing.” Jiang Chao Ge explained.

“It’s true, there’s nothing.” Zhi Xuan said, “There are no strange beasts near.”

Long Xiang furrowed his brow, “It’s abnormal, those who are on night watch should be extra careful.”

Jiang Chao Ge said, “Zhi Xuan, you used to live in Kunlun Immortal Boundary with Yin Chuan for a long time, don’t you remember this place?”

“I traveled thousands of miles a day back then, and I can cover the road you have traveled in one step.
How can I remember?”

“Then how do you lead the way?” Yun Xi said softly.

Zhi Xuan thought for a moment.
“In the past, I always ran towards the Kunlun Immortal Boundary and I could smell Yin Chuan, then I could find him following the scent.
But I can no longer run, nor can I smell him… so I won’t lead you.
Find him yourselves.” He finished speaking and drank his wine alone.

Everyone was stunned by his audacity.
The scene was so quiet, you could hear a pin drop.
They looked at each other and found a trace of confusion in each other’s eyes.

Yun Xi hugged his knees tightly and sniffled, “I want to go home.”

Long Xiang whispered, “Is it possible we are lost?”

Ruan Qiansu rubbed her cold cheeks and sighed, “No, we didn’t have a route to start with.
How can we be lost?”

Yun Xi buried his face in his knees, his body curling into a ball.

Yu Ren Shu said confidently, “Don’t be afraid, a man’s ambitions extend beyond the four corners of the world.
Whether there is a path or not, we can always find a way out.”

Jiang Chao Ge loved Yu Ren Shu’s heroic spirit, even in the face of adversity, he could still inspire confidence in others.

Zui You poked Long Xiang’s cheek and said, “If we can’t get out, I’ll stay here with you until we grow old.”

Long Xiang shook his head, “No, I want to go out and find my hometown.”

“Then grow up quickly.” Zui You looked at him expectantly.

“What does that have to do with me growing up?”

Zui You licked his lips, smiled and said nothing.

After chatting for a while, except for those on night watch duty, everyone went back to their tents to rest.

Jiang Chao Ge whispered to Zhi Xuan, “Do you really not remember anything about this mountain?”

Zhi Xuan glanced at him, hesitant to speak.

Jiang Chao Ge said, “Zhi Xuan, I know you won’t lie, I can see you just don’t want to say, it doesn’t matter if you don’t tell them, just tell me.”

“I don’t want to tell you, because I’m afraid you will be scared stupid.”

“Am I that timid?”

“Thousands of years ago, Kunlun Mountain was said to have thousands of types of fierce and bloodthirsty exotic beasts due to the constant snow, making hunting difficult.
There were also several human exotic tribes in Kunlun Mountain who practiced witchcraft and some dark arts.
Yin Chuan was constantly guarding Kunlun Mountain, which made it relatively peaceful.
Once he leaves, the mountain range will be filled with bloodshed.
It has been thousands of years since then, and I don’t know what it looks like now.
All I know is that Kunlun Mountain at that time was definitely more dangerous than the outside world.”

Jiang Chao Ge nodded.
“Since we have already entered, let’s be prepared.
Besides, we have you, what do we have to be afraid of, right?”

Zhi Xuan frowned slightly.
“The so-called twelve ancient beasts are indeed the most formidable, but there were also many powerful beasts with thousands of years of cultivation in Kunlun Mountain back then.
If there are many of them, they can be as powerful as us in battle.
I hope that after thousands of years, they have already turned into dust, otherwise…”

Jiang Chao Ge’s heart sank, and he suddenly felt genuine fear of this mysterious mountain range.

Majestic Feathers- I changed Zuzong to predecessor, thanks to Editor Ducky finding a non-awkward word for ancestor.
