Grasping Evil - 4
You can cure my poison!?
Inside the Si Fan Palace, the icy palace of Old Monster Han where he had always lived alone. No one had ever been allowed to step inside, but now, Ning Fan was an exception.
Ning Fan pushed the door to go outside where the moonlight shone and then stretched his back.
He wore a white robe and cloud shoes with his hair tied upward and was covered by a black dao cape. The clear juxtaposition between black and white clearly accentuated his handsome and noble appearance.
He was clearly a young man, but his eyes contained the gleaming hint of an old monster.
He closed his eyes to remember the Immortal Emperor’s inheritance. Inside the memories were many cluttered manuals that he could study, but there was only one legitimate cultivation merit law.
The “Yin Yang Transformation” left behind by the Immortal Emperor, Ancient Chaos Grand Emperor, in the legends!
This merit law was divided into ten levels and separated into Yin and Yang. He needed to cultivate those two together. After completing one level, one’s cultivation would increase by a huge amount. With the magical property of the Yin Yang Locket, when performing dual cultivation with a female, one could improve their cultivation as well.
Ning Fan estimated that if he cultivated step by step, he would need several dozen years to reach the Harmonious Spirit realm. But if he used the “Yin Yang Transformation” and had sex with women, he would be able to reach the ninth level of the Vein Opening realm in less than half a year. And if he successfully completed the first level of the “Yin Yang Transformation”, then his cultivation could even reach the Harmonious Spirit realm.
Ning Fan opened his eyes in which contained a flashing brilliance. With the Yin Yang Locket along with the Yin Yang Transformation, he would one day become a Void Fragmentation expert and freely rampage within the Rain Immortal World!
In order to cultivate the Yin Yang Transformation, he needed to combine the Dao with women. On one hand, he needed to devour flames and use Yang to feed the Yin, to achieve a harmonious balance.
In the first level, he only needed to freely perform sexual intercourse ninety-nine times with women along with swallowing nine different mortal flames.
The second level required ninety-nine sessions with Nascent Soul cultivators, as well as devouring nine hundred and ninety-nine mortal flames.
The third level dictated for him to have sex with Void Fragmentation cultivators ninety-nine times, along with obtaining nine immortal flames.
After reaching the third level of the Yin Yang Transformation, he could use the sealed world within the Yin Yang Locket — the Mysterious Yin World.
The mysterious girl was trapped inside the Mysterious Yin World. Once Ning Fan reached the third level, he could free her. However, Ning Fan didn’t think that he could reach the Void Fragmentation realm within several hundred years, so to be able to have sex with Void Fragmentation cultivators was impossible at the moment.
He smiled and lifted his finger. It emanated a black flame along with the roar of a dragon. This flame was the combination of several hundred mortal flames, becoming a fire dragon. However, it was killed by Ning Fan’s locket at the All Pleasure Sect.
This flame belonged to the old monster. Even if Ning Fan’s cultivation was still shallow, with the help of this flame, he could easily kill cultivators below the Harmonious Spirit realm like he would kill insects. This was a hidden ace card, and he couldn’t easily let others find out about it.
At the very least, he didn’t need to worry about finding mortal flames before the second level. What was left was the intercourse with women, then he would successfully breakthrough the first level.
Ning Fan turned around and Zhihe was still sleeping. He was hesitating in his mind.
“Intercourse with Zhihe would allow for me to break through the first level, and my cultivation would greatly increase, but… She is still too young…”
After his experience of witnessing cruelty and murderous scenes, his heart already became stone-like. However, Zhihe was the one who saved him twice during his despair. How could he be willing to hurt her?
“I will not leave this girl for the rest of my life. However, there are matters that can't be rushed. I need to wait till she is a bit older…”
Ning Fan contemplated outside while Zhihe was waking up and started to quietly cry.
She finally woke up. She saved Ning Fan twice. The first time was with her jade locket and buns. The second time, she lost her purity.
However, when she woke up, she found that Ning Fan had left her alone, and she felt a bit uncomfortable. As for the reason why, she didn’t know. She was captured by the All Pleasure Sect when she was nine, so she had no contact with men and didn’t understand romance. Today, she was twelve and lost her purity to Ning Fan. It had nothing to do with love, she just didn’t want to see Ning Fan die.
But when she opened her eyes and didn’t see him, she was annoyed. Ning Fan should be here with her at the moment, but so what if he was? She already lost her virginity and it would never come back.
Confused and lost. That was the best way to describe the current Zhihe.
Zhihe’s figure was slender and white yet covered in wounds. She gently pushed away the silk pillow and left the bed. However, her lower body was in pain and she couldn’t stand straight and fell to the ground.
A thin person caught her. She was naked, but the other party didn’t have any sexual desire.
“Just woke up?”
Ning Fan warmly smiled.
“Ah, Big Brother, do not look! I’m not wearing clothes!”
Zhihe was flustered being in Ning Fan’s embrace. Her originally weakened body became even more powerless.
She didn’t understand or know why romantic love was a wonderful and enjoyable thing. Last night, she was left only with painful sensations.
“Okay, I am not watching.”
Ning Fan closed his eyes and carried her back to the bed while his fingers were groping her body.
Ning Fan’s gentleness comforted Zhihe. However, being groped by him, she was very embarrassed and said:
“Big Brother, don’t… don’t do this... Zhihe is becoming strange…”
“I am healing your wounds and opening your veins so that the bruised blood can travel freely. Sleep well and you will be able to walk again tomorrow.”
This massaging technique was from the third memory of the Immortal Emperor. It was meant to massage women who just had their first sexual experience, allowing their blood in their lower body to move as well as removing the swelling and pain.
Ning Fan’s technique was extremely magical. If the old monster was here, he would surely be shocked. In the time it took to for one incense to burn, Zhihe’s face was flushed red and she was breathing in a strange manner. She felt warm throughout her entire body, and the pain near her groin was slowly lessening.
She looked at Ning Fan and thought it was an illusion. After one night, Ning Fan became different, but now he exuded an aura that made others feel safe.
“Big Brother, you are kind…”
Zhihe comfortably fell asleep with a sweet smile on her face.
Ning Fan covered her up with the silk blanket and carefully observed her features for the first time.
Her young hairstyle that represented her virginity was disheveled. Her oval face was somewhat feminine, causing others to adore her. Under her lashes, her bright eyes were closed— she was in deep sleep.
“Without her, I would have died twice. This Ning Fan, this worthless life is unable to return the favor. I can only promise you that as long as I am here, I will protect you. No one in the Rain Immortal World will ever hurt you!”
His palm gently caressed the sleeping face of Zhihe in a gentle and loving manner.
He had just finished speaking and an unrestrained laughter came from the outside:
“Haha! A true man, worthy of being my disciple! Those last words, this old man likes them a lot. My veins were destroyed and in this life, I cannot break through to the Gold Core realm. However, my disciple will one day rampage this Rain Immortal World! Haha, truly an interesting young guy, rampaging the Rain Immortal World!”
Ning Fan frowned. The one laughing loudly outside was by no doubt Old Monster Han. He did not have a favorable opinion towards him. However, he didn’t have any hateful sentiment for him either.
He opened the door and came out with eyes as calm as the water surface. This gaze was met by the old monster, and he became surprised. This calm person staring at him was not a young man, but also an old monster. An old monster stronger than him by many times.
‘Strange, this little son of a bitch, since when did his eyes become ferocious like the little Dugu girl!? Could it be that he is also from the Sword World? How is this possible? Haha, I must be imagining it.’
The more he stared, the more satisfied he became with Ning Fan. With both arms clasped in front of his chest, he continuously nodded his head:
“When I said I wanted to kill you, do you bear any grievances towards me?”
“How could Ning Fan dare to hate master.”
Even though Ning Fan had the memories of an Immortal Emperor, his cultivation was still shallow and naturally, he didn’t dare to provoke the old monster. Plus, he was also speaking the truth. His hatred towards the old man was non-existent.
“Aizzzz, don’t hate this old man. This is the rule established by the master of my master… established by our Black Evil Sect’s ancestor. My cultivation merit law is called the “Black Evil Law”, an Immemorial Merit Law that only Immemorial Evil Veins could cultivate. You are also an Immemorial Evil Vein. Once you reach the Harmonious Spirit realm, I will pass this merit law to you.”
The old monster laughed while Ning Fan frowned. Could it be that this old monster really wanted him as a disciple?
“Remember, the Immemorial Evil Vein is a secret and cannot be leaked out. Back then, I was young and foolish. I relied on my Immemorial Evil Vein and caused trouble everywhere and was crippled by others. It was the same as dying… Hmph, anyway, you cannot let other people know about the secret evil vein in your body. Otherwise, I will not care for your life.”
The old monster’s expression was cold, but it also had a glint of hidden sadness. Ning Fan had the insight of an Immortal Emperor, so he was able to discern it.
“Remember, you need to protect women who have slept with you well. Don’t learn from me… This little girl was poisoned by the female scorpions of the All Pleasure Sect, and it is quite a dangerous poison. This is the antidote. Wait until she wakes up and feed it to her. This Old Man had to kill all the way to the righteous Great Void Sect and was chased by those idiots for three days just for your woman… We won’t talk about this anymore. Oh right, one last thing to remember, the ‘Seven Apricot Manual’, you better return it to me soon after reading it. If you ruin even one page, I will chop you into mincemeat!”
He threw a small jade container to Ning Fan and laughed before he turned around and left. However, his shadow carried a faint sense of loneliness.
Ning Fan accepted the jade container and opened the cork to smell the pill energy inside. He was a bit surprised:
“Void Origin Dan? This dan could cure all poisons of the Gold Core realm!”
Ning Fan did not expect that Old Monster Han who kept saying that he would kill him would run all the way to the Great Void Sect to steal such a valuable antidote to cure Zhihe.
Running away for three days… The old monster said it like it was nothing, but Ning Fan knew how dangerous it was. By stealing this dan, he probably was chased by Gold Core experts for several days.
This old monster was a merciless killer, but in the end, he was quite good to Ning Fan.
Ning Fan didn’t believe that the old monster considered him as a disciple at first sight, so there had to be another reason.
However, since the old monster showed kindness to him, he naturally wanted to do a thing or two back.
“Wait a second.”
Ning Fan called the old monster back.
“What? I have to go recover. Wait till tomorrow.”
The old monster was quite impatient.
“I have a lost method, it could cure the poison in your veins.”
Ning Fan said calmly.
“What did you say?”
Shock appeared in the eyes of the old monster. He only told Ning Fan that his cultivation was destroyed, how could Ning Fan know that his cultivation was destroyed because his veins were poisoned?
He joined the Sinister Sparrow Sect because the sect master was a talented doctor. But after healing him for dozens of years, he could only suppress the poison and not complete the detoxification.
This poison was like maggots in his bones, even a Gold Core Void Origin Dan would not be able to cure it, how could Ning Fan have the ability to cure him?
The old monster glared suspiciously at Ning Fan as his thoughts were spinning.
However, this brat knew that he was poisoned with just a glance — too strange. Maybe Ning Fan actually had a way to cure his poison.
This felt ridiculous, but what if it was true…
The old man’s thoughts were rotating everywhere. He looked at Ning Fan’s eyes, and it was as calm as the water inside an ancient well. It did not look like deceit nor arrogance.
“I haven’t met him for three days, but how did this brat become a calm old monster like this…”
The old monster was still hesitating, but Ning Fan spoke again:
“Absolute Yin — an immemorial poison. It is harmless to ordinary people and only work against the Immemorial Evil Vein. The poisoned one’s veins would be shut. Starting from the initial poisoning, their cultivation would continuously decrease until death. The early stage of this poison would allow one to be very spirited, then their personality would slowly become ferocious and will not be able to be quelled without killing. In the end, the Yin poison will devour the heart, and even the devils and gods would not be able to save them.”
Ning Fan’s voice was calm, but to the old monster, it was as if the thunders were exploding. His poison... Even the sect master of the Sinister Sparrow Sect didn’t know about it. How could a junior like Ning Fan recognize it with just a glance?
He didn’t know what the “Absolute Yin” poison was, but Ning Fan’s description of the signs were exactly correct to his own situation!
“You can truly cure my poison? Who on earth are you? How do you know a secret that even the sect master does not?”
The old monster gripped Ning Fan’s shoulders and his voice became emotional while remaining alert.
“I am an Immemorial Evil Vein cultivator. I knew some immemorial secret writings, is this really so strange? Don’t look at my shallow cultivation. Before I was captured by the All Pleasure Sect, I was a renowned doctor and cured many immortals. If master doesn’t believe me, you can look inside my soul memories…”
Ning Fan slightly smiled.
Soul Scouring was a technique used to read someone’s memories. However, it had many adverse effects. It could cause someone to become mentally damaged, or even turn them into an idiot.
Ning Fan’s words were to test and see if the old monster was truly kind towards him or if it was all pretension. If the old monster truly read his soul memory, then he had a method to make the old man not even have time for regret.
It was because he knew the weakness of the Absolute Yin poison. Under the moonlight, the Yin force was at its strongest and Old Monster Han would not be able to use his energy.
The old man at this moment only had the power of an eighth level Opening Vein cultivator. If this old man tried to kill Ning Fan, then he could use the black fire and kill the old man at any time!
Ning Fan does not want to owe anyone kindness, but he also didn’t want to be calculated against!
However, the old man having heard Ning Fan bringing up Soul Scouring calmed down and his expression sank like steel. He trusted three parts of Ning Fan while he didn’t believe the other seven. However, he couldn’t Soul Scour his own disciple. This was not something he could do.
“I am a disciple of the Black Evil Sect. If our disciples do not follow the Evil Dao, the masters can kill them. However, if the disciples follow the Evil Dao, then the masters will not hurt the disciples. Since you are my disciple, if you don’t listen, then I will immediately kill you. But you have not made a mistake, so I will not read your soul memory. If someone even dares to make a move against you, I will protect you! Because you are my disciple!”
Finished speaking, he saw that Ning Fan was smiling without saying anything. He was a smart person and immediately understood the intention of Ning Fan, so he started laughing as well.
“Little Brat, curing the poison is really important to me… I will take revenge for her… Vengeance for her… If you really have a way to cure my poison, go ahead and tell me your demands!”
“I want to become the young master of Seven Apricot City!”
Ning Fan smiled. Since he had decided to cultivate the Evil Dao, he would start cultivating at Seven Apricot City.
“So be it! From today on, your words are everything in Seven Apricot City! Nine thousand seven hundred and fifty-two evil cultivators will be controlled by you. Medicinal dans, magical treasures, cauldrons, immortal jade — you can use them freely!”
The old man agreed, and his heart was even more satisfied with Ning Fan.
He dared to raise a condition with him just like a devil! Unfortunately, Ning Fan was still a little cautious of him, and there was still a distance. “Aizzz, it seemed like it would take some time before he can really view me as a master.”
“But maybe, I have gotten an extraordinary genius for the Evil Dao! Half a year later, during the entrance examination, I’m afraid those other old men’s eyes will drop to the floor! Haha, just by thinking about the shocked gazes of those old men, I am quite excited! But, why does this little son of a bitch want to become the young master of the city? What is he trying to do? He should be able to manage those bast*rds, right?”
