Chapter 104: Wow, Chinese Kung Fu!
Translator: GodBrandy Editor: Kurisu
Afternoon 1 pm, College Town, 3rd School District. The abandoned school building.
Before this building was demolished by the school or discovered by others, it was a pretty good location for training.
As usual, Song Shuhang completed a set of ❮Basic Buddhist Fist Technique❯, and allowed his body’s qi and blood to boil before executing ❮True Self Meditation Scripture❯ to direct a strand of qi and blood into his Heart Aperture.
First Stage was separated into six different smaller realms: Opening Heart Aperture, Eye Aperture, Nose Aperture, Ear Aperture, Mouth Aperture, and lastly, the jump through dragon gate.
Additionally, opening of Heart Aperture was commonly referred to as Hundred Days Foundation Establishment.
Also, jumping through dragon gate was the checkpoint between First Stage and Second Stage. If a cultivator was successful in clearing it, it’d be like a fish transforming into a dragon as he advanced to Second Stage Realm; if he was unsuccessful, it’d deplete all his qi and blood, his realm dropping back to Mouth Aperture Realm. At that time, he could only once again accumulate sufficient qi and blood to attempt jumping over the mysterious dragon gate.
Song Shuhang’s current progress was at ‘Opening Heart Aperture’.
On average, opening the Heart Aperture required about 100 days without any external assistance.
During the first thirty days, one could only accumulate one strand of qi and blood on average, but as the cultivator’s physique was continuously strengthened and he could train everyday, the accumulated qi and blood amount would gradually increase. The amount of qi and blood every person could obtain everyday varied between three to ten strands.
In order to fill one’s Heart Aperture, it would approximately require three hundred strands of qi and blood.
The strand of qi and blood obtained by some gifted cultivators every time they cultivated was much better compared to those obtained by average cultivators. Additionally, some of the carefully selected geniuses in the sects only required one hundred seventy strands of qi and blood to open their Heart Aperture.
There were also some gifted cultivators who obtained more strands of qi and blood everyday that could open their Heart Aperture ahead of time.
This was the difference between talents of quality and quantity, and both were talents that sects greatly valued.
Song Shuhang had only accumulated his fourth strand of qi and blood, and still had a long distance before opening his Heart Aperture.
After resting for a moment, he took out a small bottle from his pocket and poured out a qi and blood pill.
The faint medicinal cent assailed his nostrils.
The quality of qi and blood pills obtained from Altar Master was so good that even Medicine Master had said they met the standard requirements. It was much better compared to the lowest quality qi and blood pills, and every pill could be used repeatedly.
After taking out qi and blood pill and putting it into his mouth, he did not swallow it, but used his saliva to dissolve the qi and blood pill before swallowing the dissolved liquid.
With the quality of this batch of qi and blood pills, if Song Shuhang had swallowed it in one go, it’d be somewhat of a waste. If it was swallowed into his stomach, even good quality qi and blood pill could only recover Song Shuhang’s body state once. The excess qi and blood would only overflow and scatter in vain, thus being wasted.
Whereas if the qi and blood pill was contained in his mouth and he took it out after his body’s condition had recovered, as long as he finished the pill within three days, it would not affect the medicinal quality. This was the same method as the one used to consume ‘Fasting Pill’.
Around seventeen minutes later, Song Shuhang took out the half-consumed large qi and blood pill as his three energies had recovered to the peak condition!
‘To recover my blood, qi, and mental power once in seventeen minutes, on average I can cultivate ❮Basic Buddhist Fist Technique❯ and ❮True Self Meditation Scripture❯ once in forty minutes. Apart for eating, drinking, discharging, and sleeping, I would be able to cultivate eighteen strands of qi and blood by training for twelve to fourteen hours a day!’
If he had sufficient qi and blood pill supply, by cultivating day and night, he only required half a month to complete his Hundred Days Foundation Establishment!
Comparing half a month with a hundred days, he had shortened the duration by six times in one go!
‘Wealth results in paradise land, no wonder the word wealth was placed in front.
If I were to exclude time to attend lessons and socialize, I can at least spend six hours everyday for cultivation. With sufficient qi and blood pill supply, it’ll only take me a month to complete my Foundation Establishment!’
Thinking of here, Shuhang’s whole being started boiling.
However, shortly after, he sighed again, discouraged—he only had two bottles of qi and blood pills, a total of twenty-six pills. Although the quality was slightly higher, he could only use one pill three times on average. Even if he cultivated five to six hours, he could only maintain that pace for eight or nine days.
It was still too little.
Before obtaining qi and blood pill, he was at peace with himself, without carrying any hopes for it.
However, now that he had obtained some and tasted the sweet taste of it… his thirst for qi and blood pill turned unstoppable.
I guess there’s only True Monarch White’s task that is my option.
I should quickly arrange for driving lessons and receive True Monarch White coming out from his closed-door cultivation. At that time, perhaps I might be able to obtain some qi and blood pill from this senior. Furthermore… within this week’s time, I can appear more within the group and maybe I could receive some tasks from the seniors.
Perhaps I can really complete my Hundred Day Foundation Establishment in a month’s time?
Once he thought of this, his enthusiasm surged forth in one go!
“Basic Fist One!”
“Basic Fist Two!”
Under a joyful frame of mind, every fist strike of this set of ❮Basic Buddhist Fist Technique❯ forged ahead with the vigor and vitality of a mighty tiger.
When he executed it until Basic Fist Seven… Song Shuhang’s entire being had blended into the world of Fist Techniques, with his mind moving with the fist, and his fist moving at will!
Not caring about what was happening around him, there was only he himself and the ❮Basic Buddhist Fist Technique❯ in his eyes!
“Pa!” with every fist that struck, the air seemed to have burst!
The wind whistled from the strike, and before the fist strike landed, the pressure had already arrived!
After finishing ❮Basic Buddhist Fist Technique❯, he immediately activated ❮True Self Meditation Scripture❯ to deposit the qi and blood strand into his Heart Aperture. That was the fifth qi and blood stand!
After resting for a moment, he placed that ‘qi and blood pill’ into his mouth to recover his energy.
Afterwards, he was able to start his training from the beginning.
It was awesome!
This sort of feeling was like an important raid in a pay-to-win game—normal players could enter only once a day, but RMB players could once again repeat the raid through paying, and wildly snatch items until their hands go soft!
For a cultivator opening their Heart Aperture, qi and blood pill was just like a pass to reset the entry count!
Time passed quickly…
It was already 5 pm in the afternoon in the blink of an eye.
The second day of the sports event was approaching its end.
Numerous parents who came to visit the sports event had dispersed, with some accompanying their children to have dinner, and some leisurely strolling around Jiangnan College Town alone.
Joseph belonged to the latter as during the afternoon, he had been ruthlessly abandoned by his daughter and was leisurely strolling around Jiangnan College Town alone. And to think he had gotten a leave with great difficulty just to make a trip to China and see his cute daughter…
Unknowingly, while strolling, he came to an abandoned school building. Joseph who was tired from touring around had wanted to quietly rest for a while here, but just then, he suddenly heard weird sounds come from the building.
Joseph was a curious person, and since young, he loved China’s martial arts movies. He liked the powerful Kung Fu the main character had and the adventures encountered, and he especially loved those fortuitous meeting scenes whereby the lead falls from a cliff.
After he stealthily climbed up the abandoned school building, he saw the scene he yearned for day and night!
A young lad was currently training his fist strikes in the spacious school building. The young lad was sweating profusely and had not noticed him coming. Seemingly, there was only him and that miraculous fist technique in that lad’s world!
Yes, that miraculous fist technique!
When that neither thick nor solid fist striked out, clear and distinct blasting sounds sounded in the air. “Pa pa pa!”
Every fist strike had the power to crack open a stone tablet!
The young lad’s foodwork was even more wonderful. He could feel two conflicting yet perfectly blended attributes of dexterity and heaviness from the lad’s body.
His jump was as lithe as a swallow, while his attack was as heavy as mountain!
‘Wow, Chinese Kung Fu!’ Joseph inwardly exclaimed. It was real Chinese Kung Fu, not the type shown in movies!
