The three brothers Qin Yu, Hou Fei, Hei Yu each wore a black long robe, and were flying in the air over the endless sea. Following behind the three brothers were four large Divine Beasts transformed into their human forms — Ink Qilin, and the three brothers Shi Xin, Shi Bing, and Shi Zhan.
From afar, the Qianlong Continent had already appeared in their field of vision.
Within mere moments, Qin Yu and his two brothers had flown into the Qianlong Continent.
Since the matter of auctioning the Sundering The Heavens Diagrams had been arranged, Qin Yu wanted to return to the Qianlong Continent before his Nine of Nine Heavenly Tribulations began, and meet up with the people close to him. After all, the distance to the date of his Heavenly Tribulations had be getting closer. Nine of Nine Heavenly Tribulations. Even Qin Yu could also feel the pressure.
As the strong breeze brushed against him, a brief smile appeared on Qin Yu’s face.
That was because the capital of the Qin Dynasty was before him.
The previous capital had already been destroyed, which was why the current royal Qin Dynasty had relocated, and had shifted directly to the largest city to the furthest east — the capital city of Yan. When comparing the liveliness of the activities to the previous capital, the capital city of Yan would absolutely not be in any way less busy. Currently, the capital city of Yan had also been renamed to ‘capital city’.
The three brothers Qin Yu, Hou Fei, and Hei Yu, along with the four large Divine Beasts in human form who were behind them, entered into the capital city.
Walking along the streets of the capital city, and surrounded by beautiful girls, there were gentlemen from wealthy families, gifted scholars who abstained themselves from pleasures, and even peddlers who were playing chess. Similarly, there were several lovely children…… While looking at such scenes, Qin Yu’s heart felt peaceful. He loved such bustling atmospheres.
Qin Yu, Hou Fei, Hei Yu, the three of them all wore black long robes on their bodies. Meanwhile, the demeanour of Qin Yu and Hei Yu’s stern faces made the surrounding people feel that those three people were definitely people of high importance. Especially Shi Xin, Shi Zhan…… and the other two Divine Beasts who became servants that were following behind them. Even the servants had such imposing presences, therefore they could imagine the high statuses of their masters.
“Big Brother, there are still about two more months to your Nine of Nine Heavenly Tribulations, where and how do you intend to challenge it huh?” Hou Fei looked at the surrounding scenery, while using Sound Transfer and inquired at the same time.
Qin Yu considered for a short while, then replied using Sound Transfer, “There is no need to be anxious. In short, when the time comes, I will just find any island to the south of Qianlong Continent and challenge it there.”
Qin Yu did not really mind the location to challenge the Heavenly Tribulations.
After all, since he currently had no matters on hand, his body felt light. Instead, Qin Yu enjoyed observing the scene of ordinary people going about their daily lives as he strolled the streets.
“Big Brother, are we going to the Yu Royal Mansion?” Hei Yu asked in a soft tone.
Qin Yu shook his head while smiling, and used Sound Transfer, “There is no need to be anxious. The news of me returning was only recently sent to the Stellar Tower. My Royal Father and Eldest Brother should be preparing to leave Stellar Tower right now. Having spent this period of time at the Stellar Tower, I estimate that both of them should still be unused to it. Luckily, they should not encounter any dangers if they leave now. Currently, with the Emissaries of the various realms in the Mortal Realm, no one will run over to Qianlong Continent and cause trouble.”
There was still another point that Qin Yu did not say.
Who would have nothing else better to do than to run over to the Qianlong Continent and cause his relatives trouble? Moreover, he was currently at the Qianlong Continent and possessed the Qingyu Immortal Mansion. Qin Yu could completely guarantee that no one would be able to cause harm to his relatives. To those that would be bored enough to make a move against them, Qin Yu would definitely not be merciful.
“All right, let’s not talk about other matters. Since Royal Father and Eldest Brother are both temporarily still not back, and there’s a drinking house ahead, let’s continue to talk about it after we have drunk our fill. Although the delicious wine at Qingyu Immortal Mansion are not bad, they are only delicious liquor in the end after all, and still cannot compare to the strong liquors of the Mortal Realm.”
The three brothers all used Sound Transfer to communicate amongst themselves, after all, some words were not suitable to be heard by mortal people.
Soon, the three men began walking towards the drinking house, while Shi Xin, Shi Zhan and the others immediately followed after them and entered the drinking house.
“Brother Yang, who is the drinking god that you were speaking about?”
“He is the darkly tanned and burly person who is sitting at the south eastern corner. Yes, that is him. He came and began drinking from morning. Since then until now, a complete six hours have already passed, and he had already completely drunk ten large earthen jars of Raging Fire Knife Liquor, and several tens of plates of beef.”
“What a large burly man, I am afraid he’s at least two heads taller than me. What did you just say? Ten large earthen jars, is it that earthen jar? How can that be, is his stomach a bottomless hole?”
As he stepped into the drinking house, Qin Yu heard an interesting thing.
It seemed that a burly man who could especially hold his liquor had appeared within the drinking house. Moreover, he was also drinking the strongest ‘Raging Fire Knife Liquor’. That kind of liquor, even young and burly men would collapse after drinking three large bowls. Yet, that darkly tanned and burly man had instead drunk ten large earthen jars of it.
Not the ordinary liquor jugs, but the large jars used by drinking houses to store their liquor. That large jar was at least twelve kilograms, and ten of those jars were at least a total of one hundred and twenty kilograms. In the eyes of ordinary people, that could indeed be called as something frightening.
Qin Yu and his two brothers casually chose a table and sat down, while Shi Xin and the other three great Divine Beasts also chose a table and sat down.
Ten large earthen jars of Raging Fire Knife Liquor?
To a martial expert of Qin Yu’s calibre, what were ten large jars? Even if it was a hundred large jars, he could also directly drink them up like how a whale swallows rivers.
“Shopkeeper, also bring us three brothers ten large earthen jars of Raging Fire Knife Liquor,” as if Hou Fei was afraid that the world would not be in chaos, he laughed loudly and placed his order.
Immediately, the people on the entire floor of the drinking house turned and looked at Hou Fei and his two brothers.
A plump, middle aged man promptly jogged over with a pleasant smile on his face, “My three guests, I think that this must be the first time the three of you are drinking the Raging Fire Knife Liquor yes? The alcohol content of the Raging Fire Knife Liquor is extremely potent. Don’t even mention a large jar, even if it was a small jug, a muscular man might even collapse after drinking that much.”
“Stop spewing nonsense, are you afraid that us brothers do not have money? When I ask you to bring them, then go and bring them,” Hou Fei turned over a hand, and in it was a gold ingot.
A gold ingot of five hundred grams.
Although the Raging Fire Knife Liquor was extremely potent, it could not be counted as a good liquor of the finest grade. Instead, several liquors which were not that strong such as the ‘White Jade Clear Spring’, ‘Bamboo Leaf Fragrance’ and the other liquors’ prices were frighteningly expensive. Even if it were ten large earthen jars of Raging Fire Knife Liquor, only five hundred grams of silver pieces would be sufficient.
A gold ingot of five hundred grams, was enough to buy up all the Raging Fire Knife Liquor in the drinking house.
There was a glint in the fat shopkeeper’s eyes, and he busily smiled, “My three guests are naturally rich people, the money is naturally enough.”
“The money is enough, but you still won’t bring the liquor?” Hou Fei was getting a little impatient.
“Yes, yes, waiter, quickly go and bring the liquor,” the fats on the plump shopkeeper’s face quivered as he busily gave instructions to his waiter. Instead, he was silently thinking in his mind, “Drink then, even if you were to get drunk, it’s not my problem. You can’t drink that much but instead want to boast and show off. Can people even drink ten large earthen jars of Raging Fire Knife Liquor huh?”
When his thoughts ended there, the fat shopkeeper unintentionally glanced a look towards the darkly tanned and burly man.
That large burly person, was just beginning to drink his eleventh large earthen jar of liquor. He had been drinking for such a long time, yet no one had seen that man leave the table for even half a step.
“Is he even human?” The fat shopkeeper whispered within his own mind, but his face instead presented a delighted smile while he returned to his position behind the counter.
“Shopkeeper, also give us four brothers ten large earthen jars of Raging Fire Knife Liquor,” Shi Zhan also shouted out his order.
Ink Qilin and the other three large Divine Beasts too, soon felt like drinking without restraint.
However, that shout had instead shocked the entire drinking house.
Every single customer turned and looked towards Shi Zhan’s table.
“What is going on today, quite a number of people had arrived in such a short time, and all of them wanted to drink ten large earthen jars of Raging Fire Knife Liquor in one breath. Don’t tell me that they can really finish all of it?”
“That darkly tanned and burly person is really capable. As for the people at the other two table who came later, I estimate that they are just acting on impulse.”
A discussion had begun in the midst of the entire drinking house.
The plump shopkeeper once again ran over unsteadily, “My four guests, I am very ashamed that our drinking house did not expect to have this many people who wanted to drink the Raging Fire Knife Liquor today. Now, our drinking house only has nine large earthen jars of Raging Fire Knife Liquor remaining. We really do not have any more stock.”
The plump shopkeeper also felt very helpless.
On a normal day, it would not be considered bad to be able to sell ten large earthen jars of Raging Fire Knife Liquor. However, there were people at three tables who each wanted ten large earthen jars of Raging Fire Knife Liquor that very day.
“No more?” Shi Zhan was startled.
“There are only nine large earthen jars of Raging Fire Knife Liquor remaining. How about this, my four guests, why don’t you take your time and drink slowly while I immediately instruct my waiter to deliver a few tens of jars back? I believe that nine large earthen jars of Raging Fire Knife Liquor will still require some time to finish. That period of time would be enough for the waiter to buy the liquor back.” That shopkeeper was also really pitiful.
Shi Zhan looked at his own brothers, and could only nod his head in the end.
Hou Fei also, only chuckled, but did not say anything else.
“Fei Fei, Xiao Hei, drink up,” Qin Yu raised a large bowl.
The three brothers raised and touched their bowls against each others’, then in a very relaxed manner, promptly drank it down in one breath.
A large bowl of Raging Fire Knife Liquor flowed into their bellies, and the three of them instead felt their entire body become warm and extremely comfortable.
Currently, the people at the ground floor of the drinking house had begun to increase, and most of the tables had their seats completely occupied. Although those people claimed to be having their meals, most of them were slowly eating and drinking, while at the same time focusing their attentions at Qin Yu’s table, Shi Xin’s table, and the darkly tanned and burly man’s table.
They really wanted to see if there were that many people who could hold their liquor.
As time passed……
The people at the drinking house were all shocked.
“The table with those three brothers were really incredible, I could only see the three brothers chatting and joking while drinking their liquor. It was like drinking water. After only this much time, those three brothers had already drunk eight large earthen jars. Moreover, those three people looked no different from when they had not started drinking the liquor.”
“Ah, that table with the four people are also very incredible. The nine large earthen jars of potent liquor are almost finished.”
The people in the drinking house all discussed amongst themselves in soft voices. They also knew that criticising others loudly was very impolite, which was why they only used soft voices to discuss amongst themselves. After all, having so many drinking experts who suddenly appeared one after another was a little too astounding.
They might not be drunk, but how could their stomach withstand it?
The shopkeeper of the drinking house currently had beads of sweat appearing on his forehead.
The table with those four people had almost finished drinking their nine large earthen jars, but the waiter still had not returned with the liquor.
“Shopkeeper, where’s the liquor? Didn’t you say that when we finish drinking, the waiter will deliver the liquor back?” Shi Zhan frowned with a slight hint of anger.
The fat shopkeeper busily greeted them in reply, “Please wait for a little while, the waiter will soon be right back, soon.”
That fat shopkeeper had read countless people throughout his life, and could naturally see that those people who could drink that much alcohol, simply based on their demeanour, none of them were people that he could afford to offend. Moreover, simply by looking at how well those people could hold their liquor, he knew that none of them were ordinary men.
The fat shopkeeper did not dare to offend even a single one of them.
After a brief moment —
“Shopkeeper, another ten large earthen jars. Ah, the taste of this liquor is really not bad,” Hou Fei shouted.
“My guest, sorry to trouble you but please wait for a moment,” the plump shopkeeper respectfully replied as compared to his previous unflustered attitude. Although his face was smiling as he greeted and replied to the guests, his mind was instead continuously berating in anger, “Damn it, it’s time to change a waiter, such a long time has passed and he still hasn’t delivered the liquor here. If I anger this group of people before my eyes, it might be even possible that they will tear down my drinking house.”
The fat shopkeeper’s guess was very accurate.
Out of those eight people who could drink and hold their liquor, any single one of them could transform his drinking house into broken pieces within the time it took to wave a hand.
The fat shopkeeper’s eyes gleamed. The figure of the waiter at a distance made him relax a breath, “My dear guests, the waiter has already returned, the liquor will immediately be sent to everyone’s sides.” That fat shopkeeper instantly began ordering his workers within the drinking house to begin carrying the liquor in.
The liquor was drunk from the middle of the afternoon until night, after which another round began from the night to the early afternoon of the very next day.
Qin Yu and his two brothers at one table, Shi Xin and the other three great Divine Beasts at another table, and the darkly tanned and burly man at the last table.
The people at those three tables were continuously drinking. Even while late at night, that fat shopkeeper only closed the main doors to the drinking house and continued to let the men at those three tables drink.
Qin Yu and his two brothers, and Shi Xin and the other three great Divine Beasts were still all right since they could chat with each other, while that darkly tanned and burly man was, instead, alone. From the beginning to the end, that darkly tanned and burly man did not even speak a single sentence.
Early afternoon, the sunny rays of light shone through the open main doors of the drinking house.
“How satisfied, I did not expect to be able to drink such good liquor in a place with ordinary people,” that darkly tanned and burly man stood up, he…… had finally ate and drank his fill.
There were already quite a few guests in the early afternoon of that drinking house. Almost all of the guests knew how much liquor that darkly tanned and burly man had drunk.
A full forty large earthen jars!
While at the other two tables, one had emptied sixty large earthen jars, and the other had emptied seventy large earthen jars.
What a frightening group of people!
“Indeed, he is not an ordinary man,” a slight smile flashed across Qin Yu’s eyes, while at the same time he used his Spiritual Awareness to investigate for a moment. Qin Yu’s eyes lit up, “Is he a Loose Devil, Loose Demon, or Loose Immortal?”
Qin Yu had rarely used his Spiritual Awareness on the Qianlong Continent, but when he had earlier used his Spiritual Awareness once, Qin Yu instead found that…… he actually could not discern that darkly tanned and burly man.
The darkly tanned and burly man walked towards Qin Yu’s table.
He did not realise earlier, but at the moment when that darkly tanned and burly man stood in front of him, Qin Yu then found that, that man had a terrifying presence. “As if a mountain was set down over me. Such a thick and dignified atmosphere, he definitely is an expert, whose capabilities are not beneath Zong Jue’s.”
“Hey, kid, you look very pleasing to my eyes,” the darkly tanned and burly man grinned and looked at Hou Fei.
“Me?” Hou Fei alarmingly pointed at himself.
The darkly tanned and burly man nodded, “My name is Man Gan, you can address me as Big Brother Man Gan.”
Qin Yu suddenly noticed something — the man called Man Gan before him, the pupils of his eyes were actually purple!
“Big Brother, damn it, I only have one Big Brother, who are you to call yourself my Big Brother?” Hou Fei definitely disdained that idea.
A glimmer of light flashed across Man Gan’s purple eyes, the smile on his face vanished without a trace, and his facial expression completely cooled down.
