Chapter 311 Heaven Treasure, Plum Blossom
“Bang!” When the hyena’s paws fell to the ground and its body twisted with the influence of inertia, it was about to hit Fang Qiu with great strength. However, Fang Qiu swiftly held out his right fist to fiercely punch on the hyena’s right leg, which was still moving in the air.
A loud noise was heard.
With the impact of Fang Qiu’s fierce blow, the giant hyena wasn’t able to change its direction but forced to turn back.
Because of the hit, the hyena’s body was completely twisted.
The hyena immediately lowered the forepart of its body, baring its teeth and snarling wildly at Fang Qiu.
“Hmm?” Fang Qiu raised his eyebrows.
One of the hyena’s hind legs curled up and trembled. It must be seriously injured.
“Still here?” Looking at the giant hyena staying in the same place, Fang Qiu was a bit surprised.
Generally, this kind of creature certainly had consciousness. They were more sensitive than ordinary beasts when they confronted danger.
Like the big toad Fang Qiu met before, it knew that it couldn’t beat Fang Qiu, so it immediately hid in the depths of the swamp.
But this hyena was different. Knowing that it couldn’t defeat Fang Qiu, it still chose to confront him and didn’t intend to escape even if it was injured, which made Fang Qiu confuse.
“It doesn’t look like it is out of control. If it did, it wouldn’t have scared away by me on the road before. Since it’s not mad, why doesn’t it run?”
“These creatures cherish their lives. After all, there are only one or two of them which could reach this level. But it doesn’t go mad or run away after getting hit. There must be a reason that it even dares to risk its life. What can it be?” Fang Qiu murmured to himself.
Fang Qiu looked around when he was confused, only to find that there was nothing special.
“Maybe it still has something to do here,” Fang Qiu pondered.
It occurred to him that this was where the hyena stopped for the first time while Fang Qiu was running after it.
In other words, the hyena wanted to stop Fang Qiu from going further because there was something that this beast needed to protect in the mountains!
With that in mind, Fang Qiu narrowed his eyes and revealed his power.
He had completely given out the guru’s power towards the hyena.
“Woo…” Sensing a burst of strength from Fang Qiu, the giant hyena growled in a low voice.
“Hmm,” Fang Qiu snorted.
All of a sudden, the giant hyena shouted, turned around, and ran to the other side of the mountain peak.
Seeing that, Fang Qiu smiled. That was what he wanted.
He wanted to see what the hyena was protecting and what made it so bold to attack humans?
The hyena’s right hind leg trembled and it didn’t even touch the ground while running.
Fang Qiu followed behind.
Running for a while, Fang Qiu found that the peak of the mountain was surprisingly wide. Although the ground was somewhat uneven and the surrounding area was covered with trees, it looked quite broad at first glance. It seemed more spacious especially when it was covered with snow.
Following the giant hyena, Fang Qiu didn’t get closer or attack it.
The giant hyena would turn around to bark at Fang Qiu after running for a while, but it didn’t dare to attack him.
It couldn’t beat Fang Qiu even if it weren’t injured, let alone now that it broke its right leg.
Under the force of the huge pressure, the giant hyena took Fang Qiu to the other side of the mountain.
The ground was flat with snow.
There were no trees or anything for miles around.
“Howl!” When they got there, the huge hyena suddenly turned around and crawled back to roar wildly at Fang Qiu. This time, the hyena seemed to be quite anxious. While it was roaring, it kept jumping wildly back and forth.
“Here?” Seeing that the hyena acted differently, Fang Qiu started to search the area.
However, he didn’t find anything special after searching for a while.
The snow fell heavily to the ground, but there were no other plants except the grass which was covered by the snow.
“No!” Fang Qiu raised his eyebrows.
Looking behind the giant hyena, it was a cliff!
There was no way out for the hyena.
“There are roads on both sides, and it can easily escape by taking other roads. Why does it have to run towards this cliff?” Fang Qiu pondered.
Fang Qiu suddenly came up with an idea.
He made a move and continued to approach the hyena step by step.
The shout of the hyena became louder.
It became more anxious and jumped back and forth wildly, trying to stop Fang Qiu from getting closer.
However, Fang Qiu didn’t stop. He kept moving forward.
With each step, the force of guru would be severely suppressed on the hyena.
Under such pressure, the giant hyena had to keep moving backward.
When the hyena had to retreat to the edge of the cliff and was about to fall down, it roared wildly and retreated to the other side.
Getting closer to the edge of the cliff, Fang Qiu looked down the cliff.
Unexpectedly, there was a blood-red flower under the cliff.
The flower was the size of a ping-pong ball, growing on a dried root and emitting strong vitality. There was a faint blood-red layer around the flower.
As Fang Qiu saw the flower, his eyes widened in surprise.
The plum blossom ranked No. 36 on the List of Heaven Treasure.
It was different from Earth Treasure.
Whether you could find the Heaven Treasure depended on your luck. You could find Earth Treasure through using the geographical knowledge and the sense of energy. However, there was no way to find the Heaven Treasure. You could only find it by chance.
When the Heaven Treasure grew, it would be covered by a shroud of energy that stored its own power and the energy from heaven and earth.
Therefore, it was likely that those who didn’t know about the Heaven Treasure wouldn’t notice even if it showed up.
However, the more effort people needed to spend finding this treasure, the more powerful the effect they could get, which was much stronger than the Earth Treasure.
The effect of Heaven Treasure was much stronger than that of Earth Treasure because it absorbed the energy from heaven and earth.
The color of the plum blossom made it look like a beautiful rose.
As Fang Qiu took a closer look, he found that there were five petals on the blossom, four of which had fully unfolded while the last one still curled up.
Fang Qiu remembered how it was described in the book.
No.36: plum blossom!
Growing in winter, the plum blossom gathered the energy from heaven and earth with blood-red bud. It would be extremely bright when it bloomed.
Obviously, the blood-red color of it showed that this plum blossom hadn’t bloomed completely.
At this moment, Fang Qiu finally realized why the giant hyena acted strangely.
It was because of the plum blossom.
The Earth Treasure might not be valuable to such beasts because they lived in places where humans couldn’t reach. Those places had plenty of rare species, including the Earth Treasure which could give off energy. As long as the beasts were close to the treasures, they would certainly be able to sense the presence of the Earth Treasure, so they must take quite a few treasures.
After all, it was impossible for an ordinary beast to mutate like this without eating a few treasures.
Compared with the Earth Treasure, the lure of the Heaven Treasure to these beasts was much stronger. Firstly, it was not easy to obtain the Heaven Treasure. Secondly, these treasures contained the essence of heaven and earth, which was many times purer than that of the Earth Treasure.
Most importantly, many Heaven Treasures could strengthen tendons and bones. It could help humans reborn and change beasts thoroughly and made them become stronger!
There was no doubt that this was an extreme attraction to strange beasts!
Fang Qiu knew that the reason why the hyena hurt people was that it had made the area within several kilometers as its own territory. In order to protect the plum blossom and wait for it to bloom, it would attack anyone who entered its territory.
That road they took was right in the area.
That was why the accident occurred.
Fang Qiu was excited. If it had not been for the giant hyena’s desire to protect its treasure and made the road become its territory, the police wouldn’t have blocked the road, and he would never discover the plum blossom.
Suddenly, the giant hyena roared fiercely.
It went mad when it saw that Fang Qiu discovered the plum blossom.
In the meantime, Fang Qiu also noticed that the fifth leaf of the plum blossom was slowly stretching. At this rate, the flower would bloom soon.
After jumping back and forth for a while, the crazy hyena couldn’t control itself anymore. It directly pounced on Fang Qiu.
“Go to hell!” Fang Qiu snorted coldly.
He couldn’t improve his strength anymore. The battle just now had already enhanced his power to a peak. His meridians also reached a limit. With the plum blossom there, Fang Qiu didn’t hesitate anymore, so he channeled all his strength.
“Whoosh.” He instantly disappeared in front of the hyena.
Losing sight of its target, the giant hyena looked around alertly.
At the next moment, Fang Qiu suddenly appeared over the head of the giant hyena, reaching out his finger of the right hand and touching the hyena’s head.
“Bang!” There was a sound of an explosion.
The strong internal Qi burst from Fang Qiu’s fingertip.
The hyena shivered and instantly crumpled to the ground, dead.
Although it didn’t seem to be injured from the way it looked, Fang Qiu’s strike had already crashed all the organs of its body.
This time, Fang Qiu showed no mercy.
He didn’t kill the toad before because the toad hadn’t hurt anyone and had been hiding in the swamp, but this hyena was different.
It had hurt people, smelled and even eaten human flesh and blood, causing its natural fear of humans to disappear.
There was a chance that it might take humans as its food.
Since it had such ferocity, Fang Qiu had no intention of keeping it alive in the first place.
