Thunder Martial

Chapter 1 - Brother

Translated by Lesyt Team: wigglexixixi
Edited by Ilesyt


The cold wind was sharp as a blade. It regarded all living things in the world as meat on a chopping board. Throughout a thousand miles of snowstorm, the wind used heaven and earth as an oven, refining it into silver.

The falling snow steadily came to a halt; the wind still undecidedly wavering.

Within a serene and secluded valley capped with brilliant white snow, two youths—whose bodies had already been covered with frost—treaded through the flurry of snow as they traveled. Their ages were not that high, around 16 and 17.

Within the deep valley, the uneven surface of the ground made it a bumpy journey. With the thick snow covering the ground, it made travelling here a huge inconvenience. However, the two youths ran as fast as flying. As they traveled, their nimble figures made them appear similar to fishes swimming through water.

“Zi Chen, you did not mistakenly see it, right? Don’t make us run an errand in this immensely cold weather for nothing!” One of the youths suddenly spoke up as they sped along their course.

“Rest assured, Zhao Can, I saw it with my own two eyes. There is no way I could be wrong!” The youth named Zi Chen solemnly vowed.

“If that’s the case, then good!” Zhao Can nodded his head.

Both of them sped up, crossing over from one valley to another, the snowfall getting heavier and heavier as they traveled.

Within a serene and secluded valley devoid of any civilization, there were rarely any trace of footprints. Throughout this giant expanse of snow, only the cold winter and quietness prevailed.

However, on the same day and at the same time, there were actually another two figures speeding through the snow.

“Hey, hey, it’s very ironic. Who would have thought that Zi Chen, who has the reputation among the Outer Sect disciples of being extremely cautious and careful, would actually die here!”

These two people were both wearing green clothes. Outside their green garments was a layer of animal skin to bind them, very similar to that of the previous two youths.

“It is as they say: ‘One may know a person for a long time without understanding his true nature’. He could also be described as ‘incautious in making friends’!” The other youth coldly laughed.

Both of them quickly faded away into the heavy snow.

The color of the sky was getting darker. Zi Chen, who was leading at the front of the road, suddenly came to a halt.

“Have we finally arrived?” Seeing Zi Chen suddenly stop, Zhao Can’s eyes flickered with a radiance as he impatiently asked.

“Not yet, there is still some distance that needs to be covered. Let’s eat something first, then find a place with a shelter to avoid the snow, and rest for a day before we continue travelling tomorrow.” Zi Chen brushed away the snow accumulated on his body.

On their backs, they were both carrying a cloth bag. Zi Chen took some food out from his bag to eat.

Zhao Can absentmindedly ate his rations, then hesitated for a while before finally saying, “Zi Chen, with the cold weather and frozen ground, I feel that we should proceed with our journey earlier!”

“Why, are you afraid that someone will come and rob us? You can be at ease! The place we are at is so remote that even fierce beasts may not necessarily be able to be find us. Otherwise that Snow Ginseng would not still be in the possession of a rank five, fierce beast.” Grabbing some clean snow from the floor, Zi Chen stuffed it into his mouth. The penetrating chill extended towards Zi Chen’s heart and bone, which caused  him to tremble for a bit.

“We must take caution in everything. After all, it is a 500 year old Snow Ginseng, which is why we should be more careful. What if the ice bear suddenly woke up from his sleep and started eating the Snow Ginseng?” Zhao Can stated with concern.

“This should be very unlikely… right…?” Zi Chen was also starting to hesitate.

The possibility of this kind of thing happening is very low, but the chance that it may happen could not be eliminated either.

“Alright, let’s continue on our journey then!”

To raise insurance that no problem will arise from obtaining the Snow Ginseng, Zi Chen hesitated no more and decided to hasten their journey. This allowed Zhao Can to finally be able to relax a bit, as he let out a loose breath.

Going against the cold wind and snowstorm, both of them once again set forward to their destination.

Some time after the two of them had left, two figures had appeared at the same spot.

“They recently stopped here. What a close call, fortunately we ate some rations and got delayed for a bit.” Gazing upon the deep, messy footprints on the ground, the expression on both their faces changed.

If not for the fact that they had ate some rations and got delayed for a while, the two of them might have been discovered already.

“We should slow down our speed and wait for Zhao Can to signal us!”

A night with only silence prevailed.

Early morning, on the second day, bright light shone down from the sky and cold wind whistled. The whistling speed of the cold wind prompted piercing noises, yet the snow was falling faster.

Zi Chen and Zhao Can currently stood on a mountain top.

“Have we finally reached it?” The gaze in Zhao Can’s eyes burned feverently.

“Yeah!” Zi Chen nodded his head, his eyes  contained a trace of excitement. He used his finger to point towards the mountain top ahead and said: “It’s just at the front. The day I was searching for spiritual medicine around here, I unintentionally found it. Just over that mountain top, after reaching the valley, we will finally arrive.”

The two of them were Outer Sect Disciples who belonged to the Ling Wu Sect. They have put in a lot of effort in the past several years just so that they will, one day, be able to advance into Inner Sect Disciples. At the present, one Snow Ginseng is already enough for the both of them to, once again, make a breakthrough in their current strength and enter into the Inner Sect to learn higher rank martial skills and techniques as well as receive more cultivation resources.

As far as they were concerned, to be able to enter the Inner Sect was the goal of every Outer Sect Disciple in the Ling Wu Sect. Now that Zi Chen’s goal is only a mountain away, he felt emotionally excited.

“Take out the bewitching powder right now, let’s prepare to set off.” Zi Chen loudly shouted: “I, Ling Wu Sect’s Inner Sect disciple Zi Chen, am coming now!”

“Ha ha, I, Zhao Can, am coming as well!”

Zhao Can laughed loudly as he walked towards Zi Chen’s side and extended his arm, seemingly wanting to have a brotherly hug.

Zi Chen, too, laughed happily and spread out his arms.

One step, two steps, three steps… Zhao Can walked towards Zi Chen and his eyes, in between the laughter, suddenly flashed a cold glint. The hands that were supposed to embrace Zi Chen suddenly flared with a dim white light.

This is Zhen Qi.

“Bang!”

The change came too suddenly. Zi Chen could not even react before being hit with a great amount of Zhen Qi and pushed to the back, falling down from the summit and leaving a big human shaped imprint on the thick, accumulated snow.

Zhao Can’s sneak attack on Zi Chen made him sustain injuries in a flash.

“Splurt!”

A mouthful of fresh blood was spit out by Zi Chen, causing his complexion to turn deathly pale.

“YOU!”

Zi Chen looked towards Zhao Can, wanting to say something. But at that moment, Zhao Can’s eyes flickered with a cold glint and moved towards Zi Chen while circulating the Zhen Qi within his body as he used his palm to hit Zi Chen’s dantian.

“Pop!’

A sound like that of air being torn echoed out as whirling Zhen Qi wreaked havoc in Zi Chen’s dantian and vessels. Zi Chen’s vessels suffered damage and his dantian was crippled.

Fast, it all happened just too fast. It was so fast that Zi Chen did not even have the chance to react all.

After Zhao Can sneakily attacked Zi Chen, he quickly added another blow to Zi Chen, further crippling him. While all of this happened, Zi Chen was only able to say a single word, “You.”

Zi Chen coughed out a big mouthful of blood. In his eyes, as he was about die, only dejection could be seen. Years of hard work and bitter cultivation of Zhen Qi was all destroyed just like this. He was no different from a crippled person right now.

Yet the person who crippled him was his friend, his brother!

The previous viciousness and mercilessness on Zhao Can’s face suddenly diminished, to be replaced with a bit of guilt and shame as he said softly: “Zi Chen, you must not blame me.”

“Why…Why…For what reason…?”

Zi Chen collapsed on the ground, eyes filled with despair as he was shocked that this happened. He could not believe that Zhao Can, the person who he had viewed as his very own brother, had plotted against him.

“Because he wants to find a supporter to support on. He wants to be able to mix around in the Inner Sect as smooth as possible and rise to power!”

At that moment, a sudden voice had resounded from below the peak of the mountain. Immediately following up were two figures who had just ran and jumped a few times, and already reached the peak where Zi Chen and Zhao Can were at.

“The two of you came rather early.” Zhao Can said coldly upon seeing the two of them arrive.

“Hey, hey. Originally we wanted to wait for your signal before coming, but while we were at the side of the mountain, we saw you already started dealing with him so we just came up.” One of them said while laughing.

“Supp…Supporter? Don’t tell me that being able to enter into the Inner Sect is still not enough for you Zhao Can?” Zi Chen uttered with a face full of despair and remorse. Zi Chen regretted having called upon Zhao Can to come with him, regretted that he and Zhao Can were friend, and regretted that he had treated  Zhao Can as his own brother this whole entire time.

“Of course it is not enough. Becoming Inner Sect disciples, other than receiving more cultivation resources, the rest is all the same as Outer Sect disciples where there are both disputes and conflicts.”

Zhao Can’s guilty expression had already became tranquil, and he said indifferently: “Originally my purpose and goal was to enter into the Inner Sect. If there were no incidents, I would then have been able to enter into the Inner Sect two years later. But because of your Snow Ginseng, I had to advance by plan by two years.”

“Competition within the Inner Sect is tough. There are many disciples who have died within the Inner Sect due to getting schemed on, offending the wrong people, and losing fights. If I entered Inner Sect, perhaps I may need to be cautious and timid for a few years before being able to find a supporter to lean on. But your Snow Ginseng is useful to Wang Xiong Senior, he can back me up so I could save another few years.

“To be able to save a few years of time, not worry about gaining respect from others, and even cultivate peacefully is such a huge benefit. In exchange for it, I simply need you to die. You tell me, when presented with such a huge benefit, did you think I won’t take it for myself?” Zhao Can had an evil grin on his face and in his eyes.

Within Zi Chen’s eyes were pain and suffering, “I was the one who found the Snow Ginseng! I was also the one who called you here, and yet you actually harmed me instead, I have wrongly trusted you Zhao Can!”

“That’s right! That’s why it is said that in this world, no one can be trusted. Sometimes your kin may even harm you, let alone friends, right Zi Chen? The thing that happened today is just a lesson for you, but sadly, you will never have the chance to learn from this lesson anymore!” Zhao Can said coldly.

Zi Chen did not say anything, his entire life was already finished because he trusted  the wrong person whom he had mistaken as his own brother.

“Let’s go!” Gazing towards the pitiful Zi Chen, only a sneer is visible on Zhao Can’s face.

“Go? You are just going to let him go? You only crippled his dantian and miracles still exists in this world. Dantian may be crippled, but when coming upon a miracle, there is still a chance to recover.” One of the youth bantered.

“What you said is reasonable. To cut off grass, you need to eliminate the roots!” Zhao Can suddenly turned back with a dense killing intent hidden in his eyes.

“Zhao Can, we are brothers.” Zi Chen’s heart thoroughly turned cold as ice and snow as he spoke.

“That’s right. Brothers are meant to be betrayed when there’s a benefit.” Zhao Can’s eyes had no more mercy, only cold killing intent.

“Chi!”

A cold light flashed and a short dagger stabbed into Zi Chen’s abdomen, which pierced through his dantian. Dark red blood flew out from his stomach and soaked his clothing.

Zi Chen’s eyes suddenly opened wide, a gale of cold wind passed by and his breathing momentarily stopped.

Zi Chen’s life force had dissipated.

Zhao Can indifferently pulled out his dagger and kicked Zi Chen off the summit of the mountain.

“Let’s go!”

Using the snow to wipe away the blood on his dagger, Zhao Can turned around and walked down the mountain.

Zhao Can’s viciousness and merciless attitude made the 2 other youths not able to resist trembling for a bit. Both of them looked at one another and saw fear in each  other’s eyes.
