One who is unaccountably solicitous is hiding evil intentions.*
*TL note: wú shì xiàn yīn qín, fēi jiān jí dào: one who is unaccountably solicitous is hiding evil intentions (idiom)
Qin Xiaotian is not just some three-year-old child; how could he be that easy to coax?
If he were as pitiful as he was yesterday, it would be understandable if someone gave him candy.
Today, he was obviously brought by someone.
The woman chose to approach Qin Xiaotian when Mu Qianqian and Lan Shuang were distracted. The motivation was too obvious.
Well, this candy is likely to be problematic!
Poison? Revenge? Or is it child trafficking?
If it were child trafficking, this woman did not look like a trafficker!
If it were poison for revenge, she lacks hatred and enmity. First, Qin Xiaotian never met this woman, so it’s not possible for her to have hatred towards someone she didn’t know, even more so towards a child. Unless… she was instructed.
So, who would instruct her to do such a nasty thing?
It’s not been long ever since he arrived in this world, and the only person who he had offended was Zhao Song.
He basically guessed the beginning and end of things.
Qin Xiaotian’s little head melon finished analyzing.
Qin Xiaotian sneered from the bottom of his heart, and his bright eyes revealed infinite coldness.
Qin Xiaotian took the medicine pill, didn’t think about it, and ate it in one bite.
Hmph, did you think you can kill me by poisoning? What an ignorant and poor fellow! I am a powerful existence with this system. You guys are too desperate after experiencing a little beating!
Qin Xiaotian had just taken the medicine pill, and the system prompt sounded in his mind.
“Ding! Congratulations to the host for leveling up. The current level is LV4!”
“Ding! Congratulations to the host for leveling up. The current level is LV5!”
“Ding! Congratulations to the host for leveling up. The current level is LV6!”
“Ding! The host’s cultivation base has break through the Qi Refining 6th Layer!”
“Ding! Congratulations to the host for learning Myriad Poisons Destroying Soul Palm!”
【Myriad Poisons Destroying Soul Palm: The palm from yin to poison. Leveling this skill requires taking highly toxic substances from the world to make your body into a body of all poisons. With a palm out, there will be no grass within a hundred miles, the poisonous gas spreads and invades the bone marrow, and the infected will die within seven steps! 】
Qin Xiaotian eyes shined. He did not expect that eating a poison could realize such an incredible secret skill.
Even the cultivation base is leveled up three times.
When the woman saw Qin Xiaotian taking the pill, her heart suddenly rose, but she had to relent when she remembered the threat from the people behind the scene.
This world respects the strong, and the life of the weak is like an ant, which can only be slaughtered by humans.
This child is very naive, innocent, and has no precautions against strangers.
If she wasn’t threatened, she would not harm an innocent child.
A flash of tears flashed in the woman’s eyes, and then she strode away.
After a while, she disappeared into the crowd.
In the restaurant’s attic diagonally opposite the clothing store, Zhao Song and the others, who were observing in the dark, revealed a puzzled look.
“No way. Logically speaking, the Seven-Step Soul Killing Pill’s effect should have already occurred. Why is that little brat still alive?”
“Young Master Song, there is nothing wrong with the pill, right? Is it fake?” One of the henchmen wondered.
“Absolutely not. I only got the Seven-Step Soul Killing Pill for a lot of money. The source is absolutely reliable. It originally was intended to deal with several competitors in the academy. It really was a waste to use it on that little brat!” Zhao Song said fiercely.
“Could it be Ning Shao, that cheap person secretly changed the poison pill?” Another henchman guessed.
“How is that possible?! That cheap person’s entire family is in the hands of the Young Master. As long as the Young Master orders it, that cheap person’s family, even the chicken or the dog will not remain. How could she betray Young Master Song?”
“Is there really something wrong with the pill?” Zhao Song frowned.
But at this moment, the two henchmen who were still secretly monitoring Qin Xiaotian suddenly discovered that the little brat had disappeared.
“Huh? Why did the little brat suddenly disappear?”
“Damn it! What are you doing here?! Go look for him!” (Zhao Song)
“You don’t have to look for me. The brat is here!” A child’s voice rang suddenly in the room, and it appeared very abruptly, with a hint of weirdness.
The Zhao Song group turned their heads in a timely manner and saw that the brat was standing behind them for some unknown time.
The atmosphere is depressing and suffocating.
“It’s really you trash. The souls of the deceased have not yet dispersed. And it seems… this Qin Xiaotian himself has to send them back to the West**, lest you some scum will be a disaster in the future!”
**TL note: in this sentence, the word west is written as “guī xī”. And the Chinese meaning “to die” is also written “guī xī”. The word guī xī has a literary meaning “to return West” or “to the Western Paradise”. In this sentence, Qin Xiaotian used the meaning of guī xī to play a word.
The words “sending people back to the West” were uttered from a five or six-year-old child, which seemed absurd. But Qin Xiaotian’s tone is so cold that it’s even worse than that of adults.
The Zhao Song group involuntarily showed a hint of fear.
“H-huh! I am the son of the Zhao family. My father is the contemporary Patriarch of the Zhao family, a Foundation Establishment Stage expert. The ancestors of the Zhao family are a peerless powerhouse in the Jin Dan period***. If you little bastard dares to hurt me- oh, countless masters in my Zhao family will surely thwart you!”
***TL note: Jurchen Jin dynasty (1115-1234). The Jin dynasty, officially known as The Great Jin, lasted from 1115 to 1234 as one of the last dynasties in Chinese history to predate the Mongol conquest of China.
“Heheh. A threat? Did you think that you can bluff around in front of me? Please, not only your ancestors from the Jin Dan period, even from your brothers from Yuan Ying period**** are here; I can kill all of them today!”
****TL note: Yuan or Mongol dynasty (1279-1368). The Yuan dynasty, officially known as the Great Yuan, was a successor state to the Mongol Empire after its division and a ruling dynasty of China established by Kublai Khan, leader of the Mongol Borjigin clan, lasting from 1271 to 1368.
As soon as Qin Xiaotian finished speaking, he slapped his palm out without hesitation.
They saw a thick black air on the palm of the white and tender child’s hand.
This black energy is absorbing the wind around it, and it condenses into a massive ball in the blink of an eye.
With a loud noise, the balcony of the restaurant was shattered under that giant ball.
This black gas even carries a terrifying power of corrosion.
The Zhao Song group turned on the body protector for the first time.
But, what they didn’t know was that this black gas eroded the body protector Astral Qi in the blink of an eye and penetrated into their veins and blood.
“This… How is this possible?! With only one day, how could he grow so strong?!”
“Wait! This black gas is poisonous!”
“This… This is the poison of the Seven-Step Soul Killing Pill! This is impossible, impossible!” Zhao Song snarled loudly.
Remembering the terrifying toxicity of the Seven-Step Soul Killing Pill, the fear in Zhao Song’s heart could no longer be concealed.
He has even started screaming in despair.
“Do you know to be scared now? But it’s too late. In this world, there are always people you can’t afford to offend. Do you think this small kid is too young to bully? Wrong. Don’t forget in the next life; the brat that you can’t ever afford to offend!” Qin Xiaotian shook his head calmly.
At this point, the three Zhao Songs already felt that their internal organs within the body began to rot at an incredible rate.
There was a stench from all over their body… the stench of death spreads all over their body.
