3 Cloud Mountain City

The journey from Eagle Trail Town to Cloud Mountain City was a long and treacherous one that usually took travelers around three months. However, Han Cai and his father managed to cover the distance in just two and a half months, thanks to Han Dai's resourcefulness.

As one of the business pillars of the Han household, Han Cai's father was a busy man who had to return to Eagle Trail Town as soon as possible to attend to his business. The family business heavily depended on him, and although his brothers could manage it, they were not as business-savvy as he was. Therefore, they decided to travel quickly and with minimal stops.

They traveled in a large carriage and rarely stayed in inns at night, instead sleeping in the carriage. They only stopped to eat or change horses. This allowed them to cover more ground each day, but it also made the journey more tiring and uncomfortable.

To ensure their safety, they were accompanied by four guards from the Han household, who were trained in martial arts. These guards were experienced fighters who could protect them from any potential dangers on the road. The guards were also able to help with the carriage and the horses, making the journey more efficient.

The journey was not without its challenges, however. They had to navigate through rough terrain, including mountains and valleys, and had to contend with harsh weather conditions, including heavy rain and snow. They also had to be cautious of bandits and other dangers that lurked on the road.

Despite these challenges, Han Cai's father was determined to reach Cloud Mountain City as quickly as possible, and they pushed on.

Finally, after two and a half months of traveling, they arrived at Cloud Mountain City on a sunny summer day. Cloud Mountain City was located in the North of Yin country, which was mostly known for its cold weather. The city would mostly experience cold weather most of the year, with only two months of sunny days like this.

Cloud Mountain City, a bustling metropolis located in the Yin country, was known for its proximity to the Sky Soaring Sect. The city was considered medium-sized in the world of Xianxia, but its population of around one million was quite large compared to modern cities. This was due to the fact that many people moved to the city to be closer to the sect and to take advantage of the opportunities it offered.

The city itself was quite spacious, with wide streets and tall buildings. The architecture was a blend of traditional and modern styles, with many buildings featuring intricate carvings and sculptures. The city was surrounded by lush greenery, with parks and gardens dotted throughout. The city was also surrounded by mountains, which provided a picturesque backdrop to the urban landscape.

One of the main features of Cloud Mountain City was the Sky Soaring Sect, which loomed large over the city. The sect was a powerful force in the city, both politically and culturally. Many of the city's residents were sect members or had a connection to the sect in some way. The sect also played a major role in the city's economy, as many businesses and industries were based on the sect and its teachings.

The city was also home to a large number of merchants and traders. The city's markets and bazaars are always bustling with activity, as merchants sell everything from herbs and spices to weapons and armor. The city was also known for its artisans, who create intricate and beautiful works of art, from pottery to jewelry.

Cloud Mountain City also had a rich cultural scene, with many festivals and events held throughout the year. The most notable of these was the annual Sky Soaring Sect tournament, which attracted thousands of visitors from all over the world. The tournament was a showcase of martial arts and spiritual cultivation, and was a chance for the best disciples from various factions to compete against one another.

The city also had a strong sense of community and was a melting pot of different cultures and backgrounds. Many of the citizens are from different regions or countries, but they all come together to make the city a vibrant and diverse place.

Carriage brought Han Cai and his father near an inn. His father booked two rooms in the inn, one for himself and Han. The Second room was for the guards to rest. His father told Han Cai to go get rest in the room he was going to meet the mayor immediately . When Han Cai got to the room first he had a long shower and then he crashed on the bed. For a 10 year old who had lived in the comfort of a luxury home for most of his life to have a rough journey of 2 and half months in a carriage was very burdening for his body. He was glad that he had a system during the journey when he felt that he could not take it anymore he increased his constitution by 0.5 which cost him 75 points so he can loosen the burden on his body. Still Han Cai felt his whole body was sore.

When Han Cai woke up, it was already evening. His father was still not back from the mayor's office. Han Cai had a newfound respect for his father now, his father had the same rough two-and-a-half-month journey with him, but instead of getting some rest, he went directly to settle all the details with the mayor. That's one hard-working, responsible man.

Han Cai's father was a chubby sly, looking businessman. Who would believe such a fat, sly looking man would be so hard-working. Han Cai was sure even in his earlier life, when he was not 10 years old, he couldn't be as hard-working and committed as his father.
