Hide in the Banished Palace and Level Up To A Big Boss - Chapter 146
Half a month after the Bat Clan was destroyed, the other clans remained peaceful.
All the disputes between the various clans suddenly ceased.
They all knew—a clan that was almost as powerful as them had just been annihilated.
It was hard for the other clans to accept that something like this could happen.
What was even more unacceptable was that the Bat Clan was destroyed by the low-level human race.
Things were going to change!
“But what can we do if we are unhappy with this? Who would dare to provoke the human race?”
“Don’t pick a fight with them. Everyone knows what happens if you make trouble with the human race.”
In all the cities throughout Fenglan, the atmosphere tense and grim.
Things were especially weird in public places like restaurants. When humans walked in a restaurant, the atmosphere would change and become very awkward.
“Our human race has finally made a stand for itself.”
Several humans had just entered a restaurant. They scanned the room and raised their eyebrows defiantly.
“The Zhou family won’t tell us his whereabouts.”
Several of them sighed.
They had come here to find the True Realm master from the Zhou family to see if he could do something for the human race.
But they had received news that the person they were looking for was busy destroying the Bat Clan at the moment.
“Forget it. Whatever he’s doing is indirectly helping us fulfil the expectations of our clan. Our mission is complete.”
“This is good news! Ever since the Bat Clan was destroyed, no other clan dares to scold us.”
“They hide when they see us and don’t want to be associated with us.”
In Niuti Village…
A young man randomly appeared one day.
Alone, the young man, Li Mu, chose a place at the back of the mountain and built a small three-story house.
The shape of the house looked strange.
The ground floor was made of large stones, the second floor was made of blue bricks, and the third floor was made of wood.
This three-story building was a very strange building in the eyes of the villagers.
Each floor of the three-story building had a different style.
The polished tiles on the first floor were completely different from the stones used to build ordinary stone houses.
The second floor was made of blue brick, and the third floor was made of wood.
Both the structure and the layout of the house were different from what the villagers had ever seen before.
“Where did the stranger get the stone from? You see the floor is covered with stone, and it is so smooth that it glows. An even though the table has no pattern, it’s so smooth too.”
This was an eye-opener for the villagers.
After returning to the village and telling the other what they had just seen, many other villagers of the villagers occasionally went to the house to ask for a drink.
A few of these villagers sat together and bragged about their experiences.
The more they talked about it, the more people wanted to see this strange building. So they came to the house one after another.
At the third floor, Li Mu was lying on the wooden bed and looking out the window at the rainy night.
It had been a long time since he was so comfortable.
“Congratulations to the host for successfully checking in at the Land of Demon Slayers. You are rewarded with 800 years of power.”
He casually absorbed the new skills as he laid in bed and listened to the sound of rain outside.
Li Mu had discovered the Land of Demon Slayers accidentally.
It contained two small villages surrounded by vast mountains.
The scenery of the mountains was beautiful.
It was a completely different sight compared the desert he had just escaped.
There were many rewards for checking in, and he could also enjoy a beautiful view.
Li Mu regarded this place as somewhere he could check-in in the long-term.
He had originally planned to dig a cave in the mountain.
But when he thought about how he was going to live here for a long time, he decided to build a house on the side of this unowned mountain.
This was a weird building which combined the architecture of his previous life with the architectural style of his current life.
The first floor was designed in a Western style while the third floor was decorated in a Chinese style.
In addition to the three floors above ground, there were also three basements underground.
“Sigh! It’s a pity that there are no movies or video games here. Otherwise, this villa would be perfect.”
Once, he had seen a villa worth more than 100 million yuan in Peng City. It contained everything you could imagine.
Now, he too owned such a villa.
But there were no sports car, private massage room, or movie theater.
“Why is it called the Land of Demon Slayers? Since the demons have been destroyed, why are there still so many rewards for checking in here?”
Li Mu headed to the third floor basement.
In addition to the practice room, there was also a private library that contained the books he had collected over the years.
He picked out two biographies then went to the pantry on the second floor of the basement. He settled down and read the biographies while sipping tea.
Meanwhile, a middle-aged man and a young master wearing a cape was on the small road.
Behind the young master were five or six thugs.
Other than the young man holding an umbrella, the others were all dressed in capes.
“Young Master Li, why don’t you go take a look? The house seems really luxurious and it’s definitely much more beautiful than yours.”
“If you dare to lie to me, I will take your daughter away,” said the young man wearing a cape. He was picturing the daughter of a middle-aged man in his mind.
As soon as they reached the small path that led to Li Mu’s house, their expressions changed.
The cobblestone road was covered with strange flowers and weeds on both sides of the road.
It looked completely different from the messy woods surrounding it.
It was very beautiful, especially after the rain.
Young Master Li took a deep breath.
“The wood is so fragrant and the flowers are so whimsical. It’s really like a fairyland!”
“Young Master Li, this way please!”
They followed the path and passed through the quiet woods until they reached the small, strange building.
“Although it looks rather weird, I have never seen such a beautiful house in my life.”
They stood in front of the house, mouths agape in awe.
The colorful crystal windows gleamed in the sun.
It was three stories tall, and each floor was covered in huge, crystal floor-to-ceiling windows.
Just the crystal windows alone were enough to stun any onlookers.
After a long time, Young Master Li stopped staring and said, “Servant Kun, go in and take a look.”
The young man behind him also stopped staring and walked over to the door. He raised his fist.
In the pantry, Li Mu put down the scroll and waved his hand, opening the door automatically.
A figure stood at the door.
“Are you the owner of this house?” Servant Kun glanced at Li Mu, then turned around, and said, “Young Master Li, this way please!”
Without waiting for a response, they pushed open the gate and entered the house.
Li Mu frowned.
Two months after the house was built, the villagers nearby kept coming over to ask for a drink. He had grown accustomed to it.
So Li Mu wasn’t surprised when he heard the footsteps.
But these people did not look like villagers.
Since when were there warriors in the village?
“This table is not bad! It’s beautiful! It’s very smooth, just like the floor.”
The people strolled around Li Mu’s house as if they were taking a walk at the garden.
Li Mu had polished the tables and the floor with paraffin wax.
These things were very common in his previous life, but here they were very unusual.
“What is this? It shines!”
“The wall is smoother than my mirror.” Young Master Li stroked the tiles on the wall.
“Young Master Li, since you like it so much, why don’t we build one ourselves?” Servant Kun asked tentatively.
“It will be so expensive to build one! It uses such a large piece of crystal. I think this is good!”
Servant Kun immediately understood what he meant. He strode to Li Mu and said, “Congratulations. Young Master Li has taken a fancy to your house. Here’s five silver coins. Young Master Li will buy the house.”
Li Mu was stunned.
He wanted to buy his house for just five silver coins?
What a bully!
Li Mu shook his head. “It’s not for sale.”
Five silver coins wasn’t even enough for his meal!
“Hey! Do you have any sense? Five silver coins is already a lot for someone like you. Do you know who owns this mountain?”
