Transcending the Nine Heavens - Chapter 55 18,000 Years Isn't Long
At the same time, the tip of the sword emitted an extremely unusual force that continuously nourished Chu Yang’s meridians. All of a sudden, the power of Golden Blood Root, which had been quietly protecting his meridians, awoke. Coupled with the force of the Nine Tribulations Sword, it became fully integrated into Chu Yang’s meridians.
After just one round of meditation, the tip of the sword emitted a strong force, expanding Chu Yang’s meridians and creating a high-spirited feeling for him.
Externally, Chu Yang’s clothes fluttered continuously. A faint black mist appeared to be released from his mouth and nose. Immediately, Chu Yang felt relaxed.
Manager Gao stood opposite him with his eyes and mouth wide open. He was immensely stunned!
“What did I just witness?” He thought.
“Oh, God…! Help me… I must be sick! My eyes must be acting up…”
This kid just sat down and entered the meditative state instantly. However, that’s not the main highlight. How could he recover after less than one round of meditation? Furthermore, how could he have a breakthrough in less than the time it takes one to finish a pot of tea? How could this be true?
Witnessing this uncanny phenomenon, the famous Great Fire Saber Master was left delirious…
Chu Yang opened his eyes slowly. The aura of a sharp sword appeared to flash in his eyes before he returned to his normal self.
The moment he opened his eyes, the hostage and Manager Gao, who were both staring at him, instantly felt a sharp pain. It was almost as if their eyes were pierced with a burning needle.
Although they were both fearless men, they couldn’t help but have a feeling of terror from within after seeing Chu Yang in his state!
It felt as if they had encountered an ancient demon that had just been freed from its prison, bringing along with it the force to destroy both heaven and earth.
It was another breakthrough: Martial Warrior grade four!
If Manager Gao had known that Chu Yang had advanced from Martial Pupil to Martial Warrior grade one just four to five days ago, his eyes would have most probably popped out of their sockets. Thereafter, he would most likely get high blood pressure and die from a blood clot…
“You’re able to have a breakthrough just like this? I give up!” Manager Gao rolled his eyes while his hands could not stop trembling. He stared at Chu Yang with much jealousy.
He thought, “We’re both humans. This is so unfair! Each time I had a breakthrough, it felt so like my skin was being peeled off. Yet, it looked as if he was enjoying his breakthrough…”
“How do you feel?” Manager Gao asked furiously. His head was boiling.
“I only had a breakthrough of one grade.” Chu Yang frowned, “How can it be this slow? This can’t be right…”
Manager Gao was stunned and his body shook, “When was your last breakthrough?” He thought to himself, “Maybe this kid had been stuck in a bottleneck for many years. It would make sense if that’s the case.”
Chu Yang scratched his head and rolled his eyes as he pondered for a moment. Then, he answered with a hint of uncertainty, “Probably four to five days ago. I thought it was a little strange since it’s taken a little too long this time around…”
Manager Gao’s eyes widened and his lips trembled as he pointed his finger at Chu Yang shakily. Suddenly, he sat on the ground. His face had become abnormally swollen and red. It appeared as though all of his blood had rushed up to his head.
After a short while, he stood up, albeit still dizzy. With a pale face, he turned and walked away. His steps were slightly unstable.
Chu Yang was dumbfounded and asked, “Manager Gao, are you alright?”
Manager Gao appeared to be in a dream state as he murmured, “I am going to bed. I am hallucinating because I have not slept for days…”
The masked man shook his head and said in earnest, “Previously, at Iron Cloud Citadel, I have witnessed punks who acted as if they were filthy rich by treating money like dirt. They deserved a good beating because of their attitude. I thought that they were putting on a show. However, I have seen what true acting is like today. With your great acting ability, those punks should be bowing to you and calling you great master!”
Chu Yang remained silent.
He thought to himself, “I was simply telling the truth! I remember that in my previous lifetime, I did not just breakthrough one grade at a time, but instead multiple grades at the speed of a flying arrow! But… This breakthrough felt distinctly different!”
“Cultivation is about quality. The ultimate way is to go slow and strong! You must take it a step at a time, whilst understanding and retaining each step of the way. In your previous life, did you enjoy soaring like that, you fool? If it weren’t for me helping you, you would have failed a long time ago. Do you remember why you weren’t able to reach the peak in your previous life? It was precisely because you had overlooked this mandatory process of gaining insights with each step!”
“If you wish to take everything in one massive bite, you will end up choking to death! Do you understand, idiot?” An arrogant voice rang in his head.
Chu Yang finally understood everything. It was true that cultivation in martial arts was akin to growing up and maturing in life. From youth to adulthood, a person has to learn and understand slowly as time went by for that was the correct way. If there were an elixir to transform a newborn into a thirty-year-old, would he truly be able to have the mind of a thirty-year-old?
It was no wonder that even the most powerful person was only able to advance one step at a time. Hence, Nine Tribulations Sword wanted to slow me down so that I can fully comprehend everything with time.
“You are now only a drop of ink! (Insignificant when compared to a book) Why not try finding some supplements? If you continue growing at the pace of a turtle, when will you become great?”
“Supplements?” Chu Yang was puzzled, “What supplements?”
“For instance, Seven-Star White Magnolia, Nine-Leaf Spirit Root, and Purple Air Spirit Star… They can all be used… There are more… You can also use Purple Crystal Jade, Legendary Gold Iron, Star Steel, Nightmare Silver, and Diamond Sand. Eighteen thousand pounds of each should suffice…”
Chu Yang’s arms and legs trembled as he stumbled to the ground!
Unable to restrain himself, he cursed, “Motherf*****! What you do you think those supplements are, vegetables?! They are all legendary herbs! To be able to gather 0.1 pounds is already considered fortunate, yet you want me to get eighteen thousand pounds? Are you insane?!”
Although Manager Gao and Du Shi were already a distance away, they could hear Chu Yang roaring in anger. They immediately turned around to see what the commotion was about.
The hostage faced Chu Yang and cried out with rage, “Insolent brat! I want to eat a couple pounds of beef! Do you have any idea how hungry I am? You…! Motherf*****! Is this how you’re going to treat your prisoner? Brat, what legendary herbs? Is beef considered legendary in your family? I have never met such an incompetent peasant!”
It turned out that the hostage was hungry and had decided to give Chu Yang his requests, or rather, demands…
Chu Yang turned around, gritted his teeth and bellowed, “Shut up! I will strip you and feed the horses aphrodisiac!”
In an instant, Chu Yang’s eyes glimmered with fury.
Chu Yang’s words left the man shaking. His face turned pale and his mouth opened in distress. He dared not show any of his internal frustration. It was then that he finally realized that he had fallen into the hands of a scoundrel…
Could an ordinary person have said such things?
“These supplements are required once Nine Tribulations Sword levels up.” The voice chuckled heartily in Chu Yang’s mind, “Little brat, allow me to share with you a piece of good news. Hence, you will get a little surprise before you open the Nine Tribulations Sword Interspace. You are indeed useless, for you have yet to discover the wide array of abilities of Nine Tribulations Sword after such a long period of time!”
“Nine Tribulations Sword Interspace?” Chu Yang asked, dumbfounded.
“Exactly, Nine Tribulations Sword Interspace!”
“Wait! So you… You are not a sword spirit?” Chu Yang asked.
“Yes, I belong to Nine Tribulations Sword. However… I am currently unable to be one with Nine Tribulations Sword.” The voice was filled with sorrow, “Damn bastard! It was difficult enough to find a sword master, why did he have to separate the spirit from the sword? Damn, damn…”
“Who?” Chu Yang felt his heart beat quickly. Was the sword spirit actually cursing the unknown person who created Nine Tribulations Sword?
“I have forgotten who he was.” The voice let out a sigh and continued, “Once you get all nine of the sword fragments, the sword and spirit can finally become one. This will then allow me to fully recover. ”
“You must search patiently. Those fragments are not difficult to find. There are many around this world.”
“But… What if I’m not lucky enough to find them?” Chu Yang asked meekly.
“Nine Tribulations Sword is indestructible. Just take your time to search for the fragments, even if it takes you eighteen thousand years.”
Upon finishing his sentence, the sword spirit did not speak another word.
“Ah… Eighteen thousand years…” Chu Yang felt his head spinning as his eyes were seeing spots.
