1358 Travelling together

    She took out a piece of fruit from the space and ate it while staring at the young man. She looked up to the sky from time to time. Later that morning, she saw him begin to stir and slowly awaken.

    "Ah! Don't kill me, don't kill me..."

    As soon as the young man woke up, he let out a cry of surprise and tried frantically to escape. His pale face was filled with fear and terror.

    "Who's going to kill you?" Feng Jiu yawned. "Now that you're awake, I have to go." She didn't want to stay in this hellhole any longer.

    At this time, the young man looked at the little beggar's tattered clothes, messy hair and his face all grey. He breathed out softly and looked around. Seeing that all his guards were dead, his eyes reddened.

    "And the old witch? Is she...is she still here?" His heart quivered at the thought of the previous scene. Even his teeth chattered as he spoke.

    "I didn't see her. I just walked in here and saw all the guards were dead. When I opened the water tank, I found you alive, then rescued you."

    Feng Jiu patted her clothes and stretched out her waist. "I'm leaving. There's nothing to eat nor a single person here." With that, she walked away.

    "Don't! You, please wait for me." The young man was surprised and quickly followed.

    Feng Jiu didn't stop until she got out of the town. She breathed a sigh of relief and glanced back, feeling that her life was almost lost in this place.

    "Little beggar, thank you for rescuing me." The young man trotted alongside Feng Jiu.

    Feng Jiu kept going forward. "I'm not interested in verbal thanks. If you want to thank me, please give me something useful."

    "Take me home, then! I'll get someone to thank you when I get home. I'll also buy you a good meal." He thought that the little beggar looked so petite due to not having enough to eat at regular times.

    Feng Jiu glanced at him and asked, "Where is your home?" She would stop by if it was on her way. But if it's not, she felt disinclined to do so.

    "It's the Pill Sun City, nearby the Pill Sun Sect." The youngster answered.

    "Pill Sun, ah? That's okay, then! I'll take you along. But, remember to thank me with lots of money." It's on the way, anyway.

    When he heard her answer, the young man's heart was overjoyed. He spoke in a hurry, "Don't worry. As long as you take me home, I'll let my family give you ten thousand gold coins. By the way, my name is Zhu Yue. Little beggar, what's your name?"

    "Just call me Little Beggar." Feng Jiu answered carelessly.

    "Little Beggar, what is your cultivation level? Why can't I see through?"

    He was at least a Golden Core cultivator, but he could not see the little beggar's cultivation level. Moreover, the little beggar didn't look like ordinary little beggars, but more like those loose cultivators. This was one of the reasons why he wanted the little beggar to send him back. After all, there was someone around to protect him.

    Feng Jiu didn't answer him. Instead, she turned around and saw an ox cart coming from behind. Her eyes brightened. This time, she could rest without having to walk by herself.

    Then she walked quickly to the middle of the road and held out her hand to stop the cart. "Uncle, take us for a ride!"

    When the old man saw the small beggar with a young master in brocade clothes, he was stupefied for a moment before saying, "Come on up if you don't disdain it!"
