Chapter 11: Master Is Strong
Translator: Sparrow_ Editor: Sparrow_, Yuui
As he dropped from the eldest disciple of the sect straight down to the youngest disciple, Xiao Budian Was all smiles as though he had picked up a huge bargain.
Lin Feng secretly let out a sigh of relief. Xiao Budian actually solved a big problem for him by doing this.
If he took in more disciples in the future, and if they knew that a little 4 year old kid was their senior, they would definitely have concerns and reservations.
Lin Feng looked at Xiao Budian smilingly and thought, “Atta boy! For you being so understanding, master will pamper you well.”
Actually, it didn’t matter whether Xiao Budian was the eldest disciple or the youngest disciple, he was Lin Feng’s only disciple at the moment and Lin Feng can only experience the pleasure of being a teacher from him.
Soon, Lin Feng became secretly depressed. He discovered that Xiao Budian’s comprehension in cultivation was extremely high; he was able to see how things will develop from a single clue and was able to infer many things from a single fact. Even a high grade Tao technique like the Nine Heavens Thunder Technique was learnt by Xiao Budian easily.
He did not even require much effort to learn the Cloud Dragon Disappearing Technique.
Xiao Budian’s comprehension of 8 did not seem eye-catching when compared to his maxed level bone root of 10.
But in reality? A comprehension of 8 was one in a million. He was simply a super genius.
Lin Feng didn’t even need to guide him. Teaching Xiao Budian was like stuffing a duck. He just needed to chuck everything in and Xiao Budian could figure it out on his own.
Lin Feng sighed about the extraordinariness of an MC and felt a pressure as big as a mountain.
He needed to rapidly increase his own strength. It would be too shameful if any of his disciples ended up stronger than him.
Lin Feng clearly understood that for MCs like Xiao Budian in front of him and Xiao Yan in Wu Zhou City, their lives were destined to be on the path of the strong; the path filled with thorns and fire.
They would be like giant magnets, attracting all kinds of savage, cunning, powerful, or sinister enemies from all over the world who would fly to them like moths to a flame.
Of course, after these chains of soul-stirring and earth shaking battles, Xiao Budian and co. would be destined to write their own legacies. The problem was, what role would he, Lin Feng, play in their story?
Looking at the current situation, he could only be considered a mentor of initiation.
And there were usually two types of ending for mentors of initiation.
One: They would be an important figure or even a spiritual pillar for the MC. But they would usually die and ignite the MC’s inner potential, allowing them to upend the heavens.
Old grandpas weren’t omnipotent. On the contrary, old grandpas were usually in an undesirable state in which was they could meet the MC when he is still weak and insignificant. Even if the old grandpas don’t die, they might be captured by the MC’s arch-enemy to be used as a bargaining chip. They would be tortured and chained as they waited for the MC to save them.
Two: They would play the role of a guide; initiating the MC into the path of the strong. Afterwards, there’ll be higher-levelled masters or big sects who would take care of the MC.
The first was a cannon fodder, the second was just a bystander.
Evidently, Lin Feng would not accept being either.
There’s only one way to avoid these two circumstances, and which was for him to get stronger.
Even though they were hurrying towards Wu Zhou, Lin Feng grabbed hold of every possible moment to train and increase his strength.
The Heaven Thunder Moon Jade was simply a priceless treasure for the current Lin Feng. By absorbing the pure thunder energy within, Lin Feng’s training speed became many times faster.
If he did not need to use the Heaven Thunder Moon Jade as the Northern Aurora Sword’s energy source, Lin Feng would simply suck it dry.
Xiao Budian was also training diligently. However, during his training, Xiao Budian also had some other thoughts.
Lin Feng looked at the blushing Xiao Budian could not help but being a little dazed, “Are you sure?”
Xiao Budian lowered his head in embarrassment, “Eyah… It’s not like I have to drink it, I just like to drink it, like… like how grandpa likes to drink alcohol!”
It was as though he had came up with an amazing reason; Xiao Budian immediately became energetic and looked at Lin Feng expectantly with a pair of black, shining eyes.
But Lin Feng had a throbbing headache. He didn’t think that an MC like Xiao Budian, actually hasn’t cut off from milk at three and a half years old.
After recalling that there were some adults on Earth who still drank milk, Lin Feng felt at ease, “Fine then, drinking milk is beneficial to the body’s health.”
The difficulty of hunting instantly rose up. Now, Lin Feng had to find a female beast at the lactation period and it had to be caught alive.
After searching for several days, Lin Feng finally captured a five-pawed violet gold leopard.
This was an abnormal species. It has an extra paw below its stomach which allows it to run like the wind and can travel on cliffs as easily as walking on flat land. It could also spit out fire and lightning from its mouth.
It wasn’t hard for Lin Feng to kill this mother leopard, but wanting to subdue her and have her obediently provide animal milk for Xiao Budian required great technical skills.
In the end, Lin Feng was tired of its dawdling and directly held its cub hostage. Under Lin Feng’s despicable blackmailing, the mother leopard finally submitted.
And so Lin Feng and Xiao Budian also gained a mount. When travelling, they would sit on the five-pawed violet gold leopard. When resting, Xiao Budian would be delightfully muzzled below the mother leopard’s belly.
After a couple of days, the five-pawed violet gold leopard was finally released. It was not Lin Feng showing mercy. Actually, Xiao Budian wanted to change flavours.
Xiao Budian spoke plausibly, “Hundred animal milk is actually the most delicious, it’s a lot better than the taste of a single animal’s milk.”
Lin Feng knocked on his little head, “You brat, this mouth of yours is not only gluttonous, it’s also very picky. Right now there’s no hundred animal milk, we’ll switch around the single ones.” Lin Feng could not help but sigh; not only did he have to be a master, he also had to be a nanny.
The master and disciple pair travelled through the mountains and would soon emerge from the mountain range. Wu Zhou City was close to the mountain range.
Over the past month, Lin Feng advanced from Qi Disciple level 4 to the peak of Qi Disciple level 6 with the help of the Heaven Thunder Moon Jade. Now, he could deal with those at the level of Qi Disciple level 7.
In comparison, Xiao Budian had advanced from Qi Disciple level 2 to Qi Disciple level 4.
Lin Feng was a bit speechless, “Even after using the Heaven Thunder Moon Jade, dammit…”
“We’ve already reached the periphery of the mountain range, we’ll probably get out of the mountains in just a few days.” Lin Feng gathered his thoughts and started to slowly immerse his mind in training, “I’ll strive to reach Qi Disciple level 7 before we leave the mountains.”
Lin Feng quietly did breathing exercises, constantly drawing energy from the outside world and bringing it into his body.
The energy stored in his dantian was constantly being refined and purified. It then flowed in the veins of his entire body, nourishing his soul and altering his body.
After the energy circulated throughout his entire body 36 times, Lin Feng’s eyes suddenly opened. All of the energy gathered together and charged towards the seventh nerve point under the drive of the mana in the first six nerve points.
Following the constant passage of time, Lin Feng gradually felt a slight feeling of exhaustion but the seventh nerve point still had no signs of movement. This was a very dangerous signal, it means that Lin Feng’s attempt could very likely end in failure.
If he failed, he would need to start over from the beginning and gather mana to break his seventh nerve point..
“Success or failure! It’s time to take the shot!” A thin layer of sweat appeared on his head but Lin Feng’s expression was filled with determination. His mind linked with the Heaven Thunder Moon Jade and he absorbed thunder energy from within it to charge at the nerve point.
Lin Feng didn’t use brute force. Instead, he turned the mana and energy in his body into a type of spiral.
The spiral shaped energy acted as the main force and attacked from the front. At the same time, Lin Feng carefully pulled out a few slivers of weak energy and used them to slowly massage the nerve point from the side. This massage caused the nerve point to slowly loosen.
Under the simultaneous attacks from front and sides, there was finally a change to the seventh nerve point right before Lin Feng was about drain his mana!
The invisible barrier, which was constantly obstructing the circulation of the mana and energy, collapsed. The energy in Lin Feng’s body roared downwards, entering into the seventh nerve point.
An abundance of energy circled in the nerve point, as if it were a constantly revolving stardust universe. Here, energy was constantly being converted into Lin Feng’s own mana.
Qi Disciple level 7, complete.
Lin Feng’s face revealed a smile. He exhaled a long breath and discharged all of the impure air out of his body.
After doing some breathing exercises to nourish the newly opened nerve point, Lin Feng stood up and stretched, “It wasn’t easy this time! Hehe, at least I succeeded.”
As Lin Feng was basking in his happiness when he found that Xiao Budian had disappeared.
He helplessly sighed. Xiao Budian who was not even four years old and was exactly like a naughty child. He was always jumping around and was not willing to calm down for an instant. Who know’s what mischief he was up to now.
After Xiao Budian mastered Cloud Dragon Disappearing Technique, all of the birds and beasts in the forest suffered a calamity.
While Lin Feng was in the middle of breaking through the seventh nerve point, Xiao Budian had his mind hooked away by a beautiful, yellow sparrow.
Xiao Budian pursued the yellow sparrow deep into the woods. The yellow sparrow didn’t look big but it was an abnormal species. It’s flying speed was like lightning. The Qi Disciple level 4 Xiao Budian pounced at it a couple times but was still unable to grab it.
Xiao Budian was not discouraged and thought of Lin Feng’s teachings, “Recklessness and impatience are useless. Attentively examine the target and you’ll naturally have it in the bag.”
Xiao Budian no longer pounced blindly. Instead, he patiently observed the yellow sparrow’s flight pattern. After a moment, Xiao Budian suddenly jumped up. With his Qi Disciple level 4 mana surging in his tiny body, he instantly arrived in front of the yellow bird.
It was too late for the yellow sparrow to run away and it was grabbed by Xiao Budian.
Xiao Budian laughed happily as he shook the yellow sparrow’s feathers. He was in the middle of playing happily when he suddenly sensed something. Turning his head, he saw a red robed youth looking at him with an expression of shock.
