Martial God Conqueror - Chapter 60
“You can stop dreaming about restoring to strength, I may not become a Spirit Talisman Master, but I can still cultivate. Whereby you, without my help I believe it would be very difficult for you to heal.” Du Shaofu totally wasn’t threatened by Zhen Qingchun.
“We can go our separate ways.”
Zhen Qingchun also wasn’t someone easily messed with; he had lived for so long and won’t be led by the nose by some snot-nosed kid, staring at Du Shaofu, he stated: “Today if you don’t worship me as your Master, don’t think I’ll teach you a thing!”
“Don’t speak so absolutely.”
Du Shaofu smiled looking at Zhen Qingchun in front of him, “We have no fate to be master- disciples, but we could be sworn brothers. Looking at your baby face, so young that I look older than you, I become Big Brother and you Little Brother, what do you think?” “Zhen Qingchun, Little Brother, don’t return to the little tower, being sworn brothers is also very good ah.”
“If it’s such a big deal, how about on odd days you’re Big Brother, and on even days I’m Big Brother. Like this is good, you don’t eat any loss…”
Three hours later, in a mountain valley behind the Du Clan’s compound Du Shaofu knelt down respectfully looking up towards the sky, said, “Heavens above, and the vast Earth below, today I, Du Shaofu vow at this moment to be Zhen Qingchun’s sworn brother. To be brothers that adore each other; the Big Brother has the responsibility to take care of the Little Brother, cherish Little Brother, and concern Little Brother, whereby Little Brother will after Big Brother depending on the circumstances. For better or for worse; the violator punish by lightning strike, pus grows on the scalp, pimples on the feet, and have hemorrhoids in the middle of the butt.”
“Du Shaofu, what is the meaning of ‘Big Brother has the responsibility to take care of the Little Brother, cherish Little Brother, and concern Little Brother, whereby Little Brother will after Big Brother depending on the circumstances?”
Zhen Qingchun also knelt down on the ground, gave Du Shaofu a fierce glare; in three hours' time, being bombarded with Du Shaofu’s many persuasive reasons he finally gave in and accepted being sworn brothers. The only thing he won was no matter odd days or even days he was still the Big Brother.
However, at the moment Zhen Qingchun only felt wronged, absolutely wronged. What was his identity, if this were leaked out, it didn’t matter he recovered his strength, his old face would be too embarrassed to go out and meet people.
Du Shaofu’s head turned to the side and looked at Zhen Qingchun, chuckling and rushed, “Brother Qingchun, quickly vow; elder brother of course have to take care of the younger brother, don’t worry you won’t be at a disadvantage.”
Zhen Qingchun was speechless. Helplessly, he followed Du Shaofu’s action and kowtowed three times to the sky, and went through his vows till he arrived at ‘pus grows on the scalp, pimples on the feet, and have hemorrhoids in the middle of the butt’ he wanted to drill into a hole.
“Vows are done, from now onwards we are brothers; and from now onwards I’m envious towards you.”
Du Shaofu stood up, and there was a smile in his eyes; he felt he lose too much if he worshiped Zhen Qingchun as Master, but it made Zhen Qingchun unwilling, and he was afraid Zhen Qingchun wouldn’t teach him seriously. But things are different now, after making such a nasty vow, he was sure Zhen Qingchun wouldn't pit him.
“Envy me what?’ Zhen Qingchun stood up, aggrieved and feeling wronged evident on his transparent face.
“Envy that you’re my sworn Big Brother, envy you have a sworn Little Brother like me, envy ah.”
A long time later, from Zhen Qingchun’s aggrieved face came out two words: “Go die!”
Du Shaofu didn’t mind it, and was smiling as he looked at Zhen Qingchun, “Brother Qingchun, we already are sworn brothers, as the Big Brother won’t be so stingy as not to give a meeting gift right; you really don’t have any good weapon or martial skill, elixirs also can I don’t mind.”
Scowling at Du Shaofu, Zhen Qingchun pretended not to hear, and changed the topic saying, “Tomorrow, go and buy some things; the things for enhancing your spirit root is useless to you, so you need to search for some other elixirs as I want you to progress faster in your martial cultivation. And from tomorrow onwards, I will teach you alchemy and array so you can refine some medicine to assist your cultivation. Only when you are strong enough that you can help me find things, relying just on your xuanqi can’t help me recover.”
Du Shaofu’s returned to its usual calmness; he needed to become strong, continuously become strong…
Morning the next day, Du Shaofu once again arrived in the Du Clan store and bought many expensive elixirs and other materials according to the list Zhen Qingchun gave him, and what he has in the xuanbi card was far from enough. Once again, Du Shaofu’s hand went into his storage bag while enduring heart bleed and sold off many items before he successfully made his purchase.
On the streets of Stone City were bustling since early morning.
When Du Shaofu left the store, exiting the marketplace his path was blocked by a group of young men and women. It seems like it was premeditated; each one of their breathing was little quick as if knowing he was here and rushed over immediately.
Amongst the group was a twenty-something young man with a bunch of expensive, beautiful delicate accessories hanging down from his embroidered robes. His features were quite looked albeit a little pale in the face, giving the impression of being frail, was checking Du Shaofu with indifference, asking “You are that Du Clan’s Du Shaofu?”
Du Shaofu titled his head to look at the crowd, and within them was a few familiar faces, he had seen them at some point when he was small. This group of people should be from the Bai Family; Du Shaofu looked at the young man, “Bai Tianming, any matter?”
“Xiaolu, this guy should be that Du Shaofu, we’ve seen him when we were little.”
The frail looking young man didn’t answer Du Shaofu’s question, instead, he warmly spoke to a young woman, around eighteen years old next to him.
The young woman was looking at Du Shaofu even before that. She had a pretty face with fine features; her lips pressed together in a smile at Du Shaofu. Then, a low snort sounded, a said, “Big Brother An Long actually said he’s first amongst our Five Families’ younger generation; Humph, in my opinion, the man that Ye Zhijin’s interested in is only so much. Someone that was a fool for ten years, how strong can he be.” The young woman’s voice was sullen and harsh to the ear, making people uncomfortable.
“Xiao Lu, of course Ye Zhijin can’t compare to you, even An Long is spouting nonsense.” Bai Tianming kept very close to the young woman.
“Bai Tianming, don’t you insult Big Brother An Long!” The young woman’s expression changed abruptly.
“Xiao Lu, didn’t An Long say this kid is the first amongst the Five Families younger generation, I will prove to you now, An Long was spouting nonsense.” Bai Tianming was startled when he heard the young woman’s angry warning, and then it was as if his frail face was layered with black paint, looking gloomy.
“Humph, you just want to teach this Du Shaofu a lesson!”
The young woman raised her head a little, looking at Du Shaofu, curled her lips in disdained, and turned to the gloomy Bai Tianming saying, “If you lose to him, then never appear beside me again.”
“I’ll make him kneel down, begging for mercy!”
Bai Tianming’s gaze fell on Du Shaofu as if all his discontent, and grievance were caused by Du Shaofu. The corner of his lips curved up, a touch of cruelty flashed across the frail, soft face, “Du Shaofu, everybody say you are number one among the younger generation, today I will let them know how shallow An Long and Ye Zhijin’s judgment.”
