“Peacock roasted with divine flames?!”
All the people were dumbfounded. After a moment of silence, they broke out into an uproar. They could not believe that Bu Fang really cooked the peacock, and he even did it the way teriyaki chicken was cooked!
The peacock, lying in the silver lotus flower, attracted everyone’s attention. It seemed to have come back to life and was emitting bright golden light. With a bird cry, its golden tail spread, dazzling the eyes and looking very beautiful.
“It’s so beautiful…”
“Is this really a dish?”
“I can feel the peacock’s warm breath…”
While the people were moaning and exclaiming, White Tiger’s eyes flickered, his upthrust white hair unmoving as the wind blew at them. Nethery and the others were already intoxicated by the aroma.
Was the dish done? Yes, Bu Fang said so…
He lifted his hand and put his fingers together. Energy burst out of his fingertips, turning into an invisible knife, and he used it to cut the peacock’s belly open.
A clattering sound could be heard as glaze-like liquid flowed out of the peacock, accompanied by many transparent pearls. These were no ordinary pearls, but beads formed by mixing the peacock’s spiritual energy and all the ingredients Bu Fang had shoved into its belly. They were soft, delicious, and intoxicating.
The peacock’s flesh was very thick, much thicker than that of chicken and duck. As it was cut open, the juicy meat was revealed, emitting a rich aroma and wisps of hot steam. One could even see the flesh shiver. A look at it was enough to whet one’s appetite.
Bu Fang glanced at White Tiger. The next moment, he grabbed one of the peacock’s legs and gave it a twist. The springy skin stretched and tore as the leg was being pulled away, while glinting grease spilled and a strong fragrance filled the air.
An uproar exploded out in an instant. It was a beautiful sight that attracted all eyes.
As the leg was separated from the body, a delicious aroma permeated the air and filled the hearts of those who smelled it with desire. They felt as though the tasty peacock leg was floating right before their eyes, inviting them to give it a bite.
Bu Fang handed the leg to White Tiger, who took it without hesitation and sniffed it with a greedy look.
“This is the price you have to pay for beating me! Now you are nothing but a meal to me!” White Tiger said with hatred. Then, he raised his chin, shoved the leg into his mouth, and gave it a bite. Grease spat as a large chunk of peacock meat was pulled into his mouth.
“Hmm?!” White Tiger’s eyes grew big, and his upthrust hair softened, drooping from his head. “It’s delicious!” He narrowed his eyes and chewed, savoring the intoxicating flavor of the peacock meat as it kept changing in his mouth.
He felt as though he was flying. His wings were spread as he glided across the blue sky, and everything in the world was flashing by under him. It was a feeling that he could not describe. He felt as if he had transformed into a peacock and was flying proudly in the sky with his head held high.
White Tiger’s boyish heart had been melted by the delicious meat!
A faint smile brushed Bu Fang’s lips as he watched. The properties of those ingredients had been incorporated into the peacock meat, and because of that, the tough meat had turned as tender as the flesh of a newborn chick.
He tore off another peacock leg. After fighting all the Gods of India, he was already a little hungry, so he planned to reward himself. Just as he was about to shove the leg into his mouth, however, he felt a pair of eyes stare at it…
At some point, Nethery had come over and hovered at his side, staring at him and the peacock leg with a sad, hesitant look in her eyes.
Bu Fang paused. He glanced at her, then at the peacock leg. After a moment of hesitation, he opened his mouth, bit into the leg, and tore off a chunk of flesh. Hot juice spilled as the tender meat was swallowed by him. A savory smell exploded out in his mouth, together with powerful spiritual energy.
When Nethery saw Bu Fang take the bite, her red lips parted slightly, and she felt her heart ache a little. Between food and her, Bu Fang had chosen the former without hesitation. That made her angry, and the sad look in her eyes deepened.
“You haven’t finished the grilled wing,” Bu Fang said, looking at Nethery.
She showed him a cold, sad face. “I want to eat peacock meat!” she said.
Foxy was jumping and squeaking on Nethery’s shoulder, protesting. She wanted to eat the meat as well. As for Shrimpy, it was spitting bubbles on the other shoulder. With its Buddha-nature, it was contented to have something to eat.
Bu Fang grinned. The next moment, he thrust out the energy knife, cut off the peacock wing, and gave it to Nethery. With a shake of his hand, he removed the tail and threw it to Foxy…
As countless cultivators and people around the world watched, the three of them began to enjoy the peacock meat in the sky.
White Tiger’s heart was about to melt. He felt that he was no longer a tiger but a peacock who came from the north, and he yearned for freedom.
Nethery was nibbling at the wing, and her dissatisfaction with Bu Fang had gone. As for Foxy, she was holding the peacock tail with a confused look on her face. Shrimpy was spitting bubbles, keeping its Buddha-nature.
Xiao Ai, Chief Luo, and the others did not know whether to laugh or cry. As they had expected, any battle that was fought by Bu Fang would eventually turn into a cooking show.
“Senior’s strength is indeed unfathomable, but his cooking skills are… equally awesome!”
“Yeah! Those are all rare divine beasts, and yet they were turned into food by Senior!”
“Senior Bu has become the spiritual leader of all the gluttons, a bright star rising from the horizon!”
The aroma filled the air, intoxicating those who smelled it.
Suddenly, a cry that sounded like a hawk rang out, resonating through the skies. It was a powerful voice that could only be let out by a free soul.
That gave Bu Fang pause, took Nethery and Foxy aback, and startled Xiao Ai, Chief Luo, and the others. They all looked up. There, at the horizon, they saw a shadow moving fast. In just the blink of an eye, it had approached them, moving like a lightning bolt. It was so fast that before its wings had flapped once, it was already closing in on them.
“It’s so fast!”
“Eh… It looks like a bird! There’s actually a bird who dares to appear before Senior Bu?”
All the people were struck dumb. They did not know that there was a bird who could fly so fast in the world. In just a flash, it had closed in from the distant horizon. It was almost like teleporting!
Bu Fang was surprised too. Narrowing his eyes, he glanced at the bird.
With a whizzing sound and a flash of light, the Empyrean Kun1 approached.
‘Oh?’ Bu Fang paused as he found that the bird’s sharp claws were grabbing toward the peacock in his hand. ‘This bird also wants to eat peacock meat?’ He was somewhat speechless. ‘Hmm… A Kun Bird…’ He managed to recognize the bird with one glance.
The Kun Bird was very famous. In legends and myths, it was a terrible divine beast with fearsome strength, and it could soar ninety thousand miles into the sky with just one swing of its wings.
Like a beam of light, the Kun Bird shot over, intending to snatch the peacock meat from Bu Fang’s hand. Its plan was simple: snatch the meat and flee as far as it could. Its instincts told it that the human being was very strong, and it trusted that.
It did not have to fight him, though. It would leave the fighting to the Empyrean Fairy. All it had to do was… snatch the meat and fly away. The aromatic meat made it difficult for it to suppress its appetite. It thought the meat smelled as delicious as dragon meat…
The Kun Bird was too fast. It zoomed past Bu Fang, and the peacock head was in its mouth, which was still connected to the neck and half of the body. Then, it threw its head back, flung the peacock into the air, and swallowed it in one gulp.
As it had expected, no one could keep up with its speed. So, it would be safe as long as it did not fight the human being head-on.
“How does it taste?” An indifferent voice rang out suddenly, startling the Kun Bird. It turned its head and immediately saw a man, who knelt on one knee on its back and grabbed a handful of feathers near its neck. His face was expressionless as his striped red-and-white robe flapped noisily in the wind.
The Kun Bird shuddered with fear. ‘When did this human come on my back? How could he keep up with my speed?!’ At this moment, it was a little panicked, like a kid who was caught stealing sweets.
Without hesitation, it turned, flapped its wings, and soared into the sky, heading toward the dark clouds with flashing purple lightning bolts. With a whiz, it sped into the rumbling thunder tribulation!
The people down below were all struck dumb by its incredible speed.
“That’s the Kun Bird in legends!”
“There is a fish in the Northern Oblivion named Kun…”
“Heavens… I can’t believe the Kun Bird actually exists! Its speed is even faster than rockets!”
The people were stunned as they watched the Kun Bird rush into the clouds and vanish in an instant.
Suddenly, a graceful figure came into sight, walking step by step across the sky as flowers fell from above. She was a very beautiful lady.
Soon, she came up to Nethery, who was eating the peacock leg. Hovering midair, she looked up at the Kun Bird and Bu Fang, who had gone into the clouds, then fixed her eyes on Nethery.
“Although you are an evil girl, you are a special one… If you are not that evil man’s partner, I don’t mind taking you in as my disciple, but… Well, you can still submit to me and be my maid. You will acquire unmatched virtue to wash away your sin,” said the Empyrean Fairy as she looked indifferently at Nethery.
Nethery tore off a piece of meat from the leg. Her red lips were stained with grease as she kept chewing, ignoring the strange woman before her.
Her nonchalant attitude made the Empyrean Fairy narrow her eyes. Even an Immortal Emperor would not dare to ignore her, and yet this evil girl was giving her the cold shoulder.
She had decided to capture Nethery with force. As an expert who was just one step away from becoming an Immortal Emperor, she could clearly sense the strange energy in Nethery, and she was eager to acquire it. She had an intuition that the energy could help her step into the realm of Immortal Emperor!
The purple thunder rumbled in the sky. With a miserable howl, the Kun Bird plunged toward the ground. A figure stood on its back, and the bird felt as if it was carrying Mount Kunlun, which was so heavy that it could not flap its wings to fly higher.
The Empyrean Fairy narrowed her eyes and glanced at them.
Soon, the Kun Bird stopped falling. Standing on its back, Bu Fang stared at the Empyrean Fair and said faintly, “What did you say just now? Who do you want to take in as a maid?”
