Ninth In the World - Chapter 753
Chapter 753: The Quiet Mountain Village
Translator: Atlas Studios Editor: Atlas Studios
In just five days, Di Jiu was able to take the divine crystals out of his Ninth World to cultivate.
Thanks to the divine crystals, all sorts of healing pills, and the Creation Wood, Di Jiu’s injuries rapidly recuperated. When he had taken out the Reincarnation Bridge and forcefully locked the two Dao Integration cultivators with a superior cultivation level to his, his Spiritual Sea had gotten injured. In other words, if he had not had a Sacred Body and a Spiritual Sea stronger than an ordinary cultivator’s, he would probably have lost more than just a leg in that battle.
No matter how fast Di Jiu’s terrifying injuries recuperated, it was still a long process. This was because he cultivated the Nomological Dao and had the Ninth World. Otherwise, when his cultivation level was a little bit higher, the pressure of Heaven and Earth could crush him to death.
Di Jiu was glad he had landed in this mountain village, where it was quiet and peaceful and there were no interruptions. Although everyone in the mountain village knew that he was a little weird, as he had been hiding in the house and he rarely came out, nobody said anything. The middle-aged hunter who had brought him back had also brought some dried food over the course of a few days.
Di Jiu knew that it was time for him to take a walk outside and spend some time to dispel the doubts of the villagers.
However, he really did not have the time to go out. He was now recuperating at every moment. Even though he had come to a mortal planet, he still did not dare be careless. Nuo La and Nie Changping were not people to mess with. If the two of them chased him down to this place, he was afraid that they would also turn this mortal planet into scraps.
Di Jiu was recuperating like mad at every moment. However, the villagers of this small village called Jia He Town were pleasantly surprised to find that some sick people in their village had begun to recover. Among them was a man who had been bedridden for eleven years and possessed deep in the forest of Jia He Town.
The crops planted by the villagers were also much better than they had been in previous years. Since the mountain fields had not been fertile in the past few years, the villagers needed to hunt some wild animals in the depths of the Jia He Town Forest in the distance during their free time to supplement food. Even if they did not do that now, their current crops would be enough.
In addition to the crops, the plants on the outer periphery of the Jia He Town became lusher. Even some hares and wild boars appeared in several surrounding mountain forests.
In fact, the Jia He Town Village had been around for so many years that the prey around it had been basically wiped out. Otherwise, Di Jiu would not have met the hunter several kilometers away from the Jia He Town last time.
Many villagers sensed that these changes were somewhat related to Di Jiu’s arrival.
However, no one believed that this was caused by Di Jiu because they had found a huge humanoid meteorite not far from where Di Jiu had appeared.
According to the middle-aged hunter who had brought Di Jiu back, Di Jiu had appeared in front of this huge meteorite. The villagers of the Jia He Town Village were well aware of the situation near the Jia He Town Forest and were sure that the humanoid meteorite had not existed before Di Jiu had come.
Now that both Di Jiu and the humanoid meteorite were present, it meant that supernatural entities had taken shelter in the Jia He Town.
Although this humanoid meteorite was more than a dozen feet tall and five feet wide, they still managed to drag it back to the Jia He Town.
During Di Jiu’s seclusion to recuperate, they even constructed a temple and offered this meteorite up.
After more than half a month of continuous seclusion, Di Jiu finally stopped and tried to have a walk outside.
This was a mortal mountain village. If he never appeared, he could not continue to stay there. Thus, Di Jiu went out to have a walk.
In just half a month, his injury had not recuperated even a little. However, he believed that it would be better if he recuperated here than alone in the forest.
That was because of the life-force and Qi.
After reaching second-step Primordial Dao, he had long understood the Dao laws of Heaven and Earth. He cultivated the Heaven Earth Nomological Dao, which was not a Dao without life-force. As his Dao technique deepened, he had a deeper understanding of life and life-force.
Very few people lived in this small village, yet it was peaceful and quiet. Most importantly, there was a group of people who pursued a better life here. They were kind, hard-working, and optimistic!
All these factors affected Di Jiu’s Dao, which had been derived from the Ninth Dao Law right from the beginning. It had never been an ordinary thing, as it was an epoch-making existence.
Now that Di Jiu had ended up in this ordinary small mountain village, he felt these ordinary people thrive and his Dao gradually transformed and incorporated a very common life aura, the pursuit of the beauty of the most ordinary tranquility, and the most basic survival.
The villagers of the Jia He Town were very enthusiastic. Everyone greeted Di Jiu whenever they met him. Even though they did not know Di Jiu’s name, where he came from, or where he was going, none of them went to take a look at his broken leg. In their eyes, Di Jiu was no different from a normal person.
Di Jiu would stop and talk to any villagers who greeted him.
Even the most common words would present Di Jiu with a new harvest or insight. Although this was completely different from the insight obtained during cultivation, it also made Di Jiu feel indispensable.
In just over two hours, Di Jiu already knew the name of this mountain village as well as that the middle-aged hunter who had rescued him was called Gui Hai.
Di Jiu did not ask which emperor this village belonged to, as he would soon leave this place. These things were not important to him.
In the evening, the Jia He Town contained a certain kind of tranquility. The setting sun was obliquely shining from the distant treetops, falling on Di Jiu’s body and making him feel unreal.
He looked up at the sun, which was about to fall deep into the forest, and suddenly thought that if he had restored his cultivation level, he could even have opened his palm to make the sunset always happen in this position. The sun, the stars, or the planet could be in his possession.
Immediately, he smiled. Humans went through joy and sorrow, while the moon was cloudy and clear and went through waxing and waning. This was in accordance with the Dao Qi Circulation.
“Big Brother, this is for you…” A somewhat timid voice spoke behind Di Jiu.
Di Jiu looked back to see a young girl with a long braid. She had a slightly dark complexion, but her looks were not worse than those of the beauties in the Cultivation World. It surprised Di Jiu that there was such a beautiful woman there.
Di Jiu saw the young girl holding a crutch. Obviously, that was for him, as he was now only using a wooden stick. Not only had the crutch been made very delicately, but the handle and the front end were also wrapped in cloth.
The girl holding the crutch had rough hands with some cracks and calluses on them, which made Di Jiu a bit absent-minded.
“Big Brother, I’m giving this to you. It’s not well-made…” the girl said again upon seeing Di Jiu not say anything for a long time.
Di Jiu took the crutch, smiled, and said, “Thank you. This crutch is very good.”
“No, Big Brother, I should be thanking you. My dad went hunting in the forest and was chased by a ferocious tiger. In the end, he was assailed by evil spirits and remained bedridden for more than ten years. My dad got better after you came and he can now walk.” When the girl finished speaking, she bowed before Di Jiu.
Di Jiu immediately understood that the overflowing Divine Spirit Qi during his cultivation should have led to this situation. This was a trivial matter in his opinion. When he was about to say that her father was lucky, a shout came from a distance. “Gan Rou, your mother is calling you!”
The girl turned quickly, looked at Di Jiu with a blush, and said, “Big Brother, my name is Gan Rou. If you need my help with anything, just ask Uncle Gui Hai to send me a letter.”
“Alright. My name is Di Jiu. You can also find me if you need anything.” Di Jiu waved his hands at Gan Rou.
While watching Gan Rou leave in a hurry, Di Jiu suddenly remembered the past. He had felt like this for Zhen Man at the time. Di Jiu knew very well that Gan Ruo was different. She definitely would not fall in love with a person she had met for the first time without a leg. She must just have been a little flustered because she had been talking to an unfamiliar man.
