SBIV: Chapter-11

After taking a glance Jiang Shao Cai only recognized that the terrain on the island was distributed in an array. 

It just so happened that the islanders had four surnames, and their settlements were arranged in the north, south, east, and west. 

Jiang Shao Cai sneered. 

Nangong, Dongfang, Beiguo, and Ximen were clearly the surnames given to these people by those who built the island for the convenience of management. 

These so-called four big families were not islanders at all, but the jailers who stayed on Tianjue Island to guard and suppress Jiang Shao Cai.

Tianjue Island was at the end of the sky and the origin of the sea.

Seeing the place, there was a cold smile on Jiang Shao Cai’s pale lips, but Mu Yun Gui didn’t notice the abnormality. 

She was earnestly looking forward to going home.

“It’s the time of curfew and the flying boat may be out of service. Will there still be the last boat??”

Jiang Shao Cai glanced at Mu Yun Gui, and frowningly asked, “What are you talking about?”

“Go home.” Mu Yun Gui sighed and said, “Let’s go to the dock to try your luck first.”

Jiang Shao Cai looked at her in surprise and asked, “Why don’t you fly with the sword??”

Hearing it, Mu Yun Gui’s eyebrows twitched, and she immediately looked at Jiang Shao Cai with a look like looking at protected animals.

“Flying with the sword?! What age are you from? Who still uses such an old-fashioned way of traveling??”

Jiang Shao Cai was obstructed.

After a long time, he incredulously asked, “Old-fashioned??”

“The aura is precious, and not a single bit can be wasted. What’s more, there are many monsters in the sea, sky, and forest. Flying with swords is simply to deliver yourself as a meal to them…”

“Here boats are used for traveling. They are safer and cheaper. Why do you want to fly by yourself??” Mu Yun Gui said while beckoning Jiang Shao Cai to follow her.

Mu Yun Gui smiled and said, “Let’s go, let’s go to the dock first.”

Jiang Shao Cai stared at the bright smiling face of the little girl in front, wondering what was so funny about escaping from those low-level monsters.

No, if she wasn’t following him right now, maybe she wouldn’t be able to escape at all.

When Mu Yun turned and saw that he was not following her, she stepped forward, pulled him, and said, “Hurry up, we have to live here if we don’t leave now.”

Jiang Shao Cai was dragged away, thinking that this era might really have changed.

Ten thousand years ago, hundred cultivation schools were competing, Taoism was prosperous, and everything in the world was human cultivation resources. 

But now, spiritual energy was exhausted, the demons were rampant, and the status of humans and other monsters was reversed. Humans had become the food of other creatures. 

In this era, there was still a silly white sweet girl who was courageous enough. She dared to say that he was old-fashioned.

Mu Yun Gui was lucky enough to catch the last boat. When she boarded the ship, Jiang Shao Cai found that Mu Yun Gui did not use the spirit stone to pay, but used a black iron card. 

She gently swiped it at the entrance, and the ship door automatically opened.

Mu Yun Gui turned around and reminded him, “I paid for two people, and you can get on the boat.”

The cabin of the boat was similar to Jiang Shao Cai’s memory, but the space was much wider. 

The wooden seats were all replaced with metal and the windows were sealed with a material that Jiang Shao Cai had never seen before. 

These windows couldn’t be open, but could still transmit light.

Jiang Shao Cai quickly glanced around and asked, “There is no boatman??”

Hearing him asking a strange question again, Mu Yun Gui sighed.

“People are precious now, there is no need for them on the boat. If humans were recruited, I am afraid they would be more expensive than the boat.”

Then how could the boat sail?? 

Before Jiang Shao Cai finished thinking about it, he found that Mu Yun Gui had clicked on the button next to her seat. 

Then, a short puppet slowly moved to Mu Yun Gui and Jiang Shao Cai, and opened his mouth to say— 

“Today is the eighth day of March and the weather’s fine. The levels of wind and waves in the inland sea are suitable for going out to sea. There are strong local winds in the open sea, so don’t go if you want to live.”

Seeing the puppet, Jiang Shao Cai raised his eyebrows and couldn’t help but hold the puppet’s head to take a look.

“How do you speak??”

In the past, there were puppets in the cultivation world, but those puppets had extremely low talents. 

Those puppets were cumbersome and rigid. They couldn’t even do the simplest movements. 

But the one in front of him was delicate and light, and could even speak.

Talking puppet??

The world building is actually pretty cool. The current era may have lost their spirituality by a lot but they made up for it with practicality and ingenuity, so even Jiang Shao Cai is learning new stuff now.
