Aspiring to the Immortal Path Chapter 418: Splitting Up

Translated by: Hypersheep325

"You now have two choices. The first is to keep the stele and stay here, underground, until the Beast Refining Gate's people eventually find you and then slowly slice you to pieces. The second choice is to give the stele to me, after which point this entire matter will cease to have anything to do with you."

Tang Jie spoke to Lin Baicang as he held the stone stele.

Lin Baicang bitterly smiled. "Do I even have a right to choose? The Beast Refining Gate will fly up into the heavens and dig down into the earth to find me in order to get back this suppressing treasure. While it might be nice, it's not my good fortune to enjoy it. If you want it, then you can have it."

Tang Jie hadn't expected Lin Baicang to be this agreeable. "Are you not afraid that I'll just leave you behind after I get it? So long as the Beast Refining Gate doesn't know that it's with me, they'll still chase after you."

Lin Baicang laughed. "You really think you can fool them? Let me tell you the truth. From the moment you interacted with me, my scent was on you, and you became unable to escape. Don't forget what the Beast Refining Gate is best at: raising beasts! They have the best hunting dogs in the world, that can track you through your scent! Why do you think I hid underground and didn't dare to come out? Only in this underground maze can I cut off my scent. Unless you're like me and hide underground forever, you'll be chased down the moment you leave! Hahahaha!"

Lin Baicang laughed like a madman. "Thus, if you want to take this stone stele, then, by all means, take it away. Once they kill you and seize the stone stele, their pursuit against me will weaken, and I might even be able to escape."

Tang Jie sucked in a cold breath. "If I leave now, how long will it take for them to find me?"

Lin Baicang cocked his head and thought it over. "The Beast Refining Gate has a kind of dog with a long nose that excels in tracking through scent. So long as they are given a scent to follow, they can sense it from fifty kilometers away. But you have only some of my scent, so they shouldn't be that sensitive. However, I can't be too specific on the details. Let's halve the distance. So long as you don't get within twenty-five kilometers of them, you should have no problem. But you forced me to show myself in the village, so the Beast Refining Gate has probably sent half its people there. I haven't appeared at all in this period of time, but then I suddenly appeared today, and considering the fuss that you've been raising recently, the Beast Refining Gate has probably been watching you for ages, waiting until you met up with me. Thus, today's meeting was in their calculations since long ago. So long as they gather all their people and start closing in… haha, it will be very difficult to avoid their search!"

"What about in the sky? The sky is so vast that twenty-five kilometers is nothing up there."

"You think I don't know how to fly? It's useless." Lin Baicang
