    B1C17: The Yuchang sword

    Qin De cannot believe this outcome. Xu Yuan also finds it very unbelievable. But how could the people at Misty Villa dare to deceive Qin De?

    Your Highness Xu Yuan looks at Qin De.

    Qin De has calmed down. He ponders for a while then stares at Xu Yuan and says: Those 3 internal experts who secretly protect Yuer can return now. From now on, no one has to protect Yuer in secret! Qin De looks into the sky through the window. With a faint smile he mumbles: Yuer has grown up. He no longer needs to stay under my wing. What he needs is to experience hardships. And eventually he will flap his wings to hover over the 9 levels of the sky!

    Your Highness, should we let Xiao Yu participate in the plan? asks Xu Yuan suddenly.

    Qin Des face hardens. He says directly without any hesitation: No. Xiao Yus power is not bad, but in the middle of a battle with the participation of several hundred thousand soldiers or even 1 million soldiers, if surrounded, an individual is simply of no use. Only when the individual has reached the Xiantian level, will he be able to save his little life in the middle of a large army. Moreover, Yuer has never marshaled soldiers. Therefore he has to reach the Xiantian level. Otherwise he definitely cant take part in the plan.

    Yes! Xu Yuan replies.

    Xu Yuan, it is Jing Yis death anniversary in a few days, right? Qin De is suddenly upset. Standing at one side, Xu Yuan nods and keeps silent.


    Qin Yu trains nonstop assiduously. Late at night, he circulates internal energy using the Ancestral Dragon Art to make the energy fuse with his flesh and bones, enhancing the toughness and flexibility of the flesh and skin of his whole body. During the daytime he works hard to train his body. At the same time, he practices close-quarters offence and continuously perfects his body-maneuvering skill and practices the Yu Clan's One Sword. Every day, only the nearly 6 hours during which he soaks in the hot spring is his time for sleep and rest.

    Time goes by as he keeps training fiercely like that. In the blink of an eye, Qin Yu has turned 13.

    Late at night, the sky is full of visible stars. At the moment, Qin Yu is taking a rare break from practicing his internal technique and absorbing internal energy. He is looking into the starry sky. There is an extremely intimidating black eagle beside him. This black eagle is not like ordinary eagles. It looks even faster and fiercer.

    Regardless of the crown-resembling golden feathers atop its head, the shiny black feathers, or the cold-light-radiating pointed beak and sharp claws, Qin Yu is amazed by Xiao Heis capabilities. But he still has not found out what kind of bird Xiao Hei actually is.

    Xiao Hei, I took you in when I was 7. Its been 6 years but Ive never been clear about what kind of bird you are. Are you an eagle? Qin Yu strokes Xiao Heis head and says amiably.

    Xiao Hei enjoys Qin Yus caresses very much. Its sharp eyes look at Qin Yu and radiate an intense attachment.

    The limit training has been going on for 5 years.

    Qin Yus body has been experiencing world-shattering transformations. If Zhao Yunxing came here, he would definitely find it hard to believe. After all, internal energy fusing with his flesh has allowed Qin Yus body to transform even faster. He has been undergoing limit training for only 5 years, but these 5 years can be comparable to ordinary peoples 10 years of limit training.

    In addition, he has been helped by the special hot spring at Misty Villa, by medical expert Weng Xian, who has been massaging him and applying medicinal wine for him, and by the various precious medicinal meals which he obtained thanks to East Vanquishing Princes powerful influence. Of course the most important thing is Qin Yu himself has been trying very hard.

    It does not matter what the circumstances are, individual effort is still the most important thing.

    Qin Yu has been training with the same resolution every day for the last 5 years. This has made 13-year-old Qin Yu an external expert. Qin Yu is currently about 1.7 m tall. His bodys muscles work in harmony and are streamlined. Just by looking at his body, other people will probably think about the words explosive power and speed involuntarily.

    Xiao Hei, Ive been at Misty Villa for 7 years. Father has also visited me 4 times. Qin Yu looks into the starry sky. His eyes are calm.

    During the 5 years of limit training, Qin Yus mind has also been trained. Even an ordinary person would mature a lot mentally if put in this kind of situation. As Qin Yu grew, he also slowly understood his father and noticed some matters.

    Father actually cares about me. I can feel that. Since hes always been working hard to handle that plan, hes had no time for me. Big brother and second brother are also taking part in that plan. Only I am living in comfort nonchalantly at Misty Villa. Qin Yus eyes have a hint of powerlessness.

    I dont know what that plan is. Father has never told me either. I see father overworking like that but I cant offer him any help. Qin Yu shakes his head and says with a forced smile.

    Qin Yu does not even know what the plan is, how can he help?

    Moreover, his father Qin De has simply not told him anything about it.

    Father is with the army in the wilderness. Big brother is also there. Second brother went there too. Theyve been trying hard to carry out that mysterious plan and yet I cant help in anything. Qin Yu still remembers the last time Qin De visited him he said -- Yuer, dont ask. When you become a Xiantian expert, father will let you take part in this plan.

    Oh well, Xiantian! Qin Yu turns skywards and sighs. Then he bursts out laughing: All right, lets forget about it. So what if I cant join the plan? Training hard is the most important thing.

    Qin Yus face has an utterly unconcerned expression. But does he think so from the bottom of his heart?

    Qin Yu raises his head and looks into the starry sky. Xiao Hei beside him is also looking up.

    As the night passes slowly, a human and an eagle watch the sky quietly. Suddenly -- the sky brightens. One after another, a number of meteors flash through the sky. At first sight, there are at least several tens of them. This is exactly a meteor shower.

    Its a meteor shower!

    Qin Yu shouts in a pleasant surprise. His face is full of excitement. It is extremely hard to come across a meteor shower. At least Qin Yu has never seen one before. He has only heard about its enchantment and gorgeousness from Lian Yan.

    Sure enough --

    Every single one of the meteors is so dazzling and effulgent. They outshine all the stars in the sky. Each meteor is radiating the last light rays of its life and burning the last bits of its energy, producing a thrilling radiance.

    Qin Yu is watching calmly. Various hints of mystery appear in his eyes.

    Meteors -- even though their lives are short, they radiate the brightest lights. They are dazzling. As for human, not even a Xiantian expert can live longer than several hundred years. Instead of living my whole life in mediocrity, why dont I learn from the meteors? In my limited life, Ill burn my passion of life and stimulate the blood in my veins, making my life radiate the most dazzling light. Only in this way will I die with no regret.

    Seeing the meteors disappear successively, Qin Yu cannot help saying emotionally.

    The limit training has been burning that passion at the bottom of his heart, causing him to love the feeling of blood boiling even more. This is also the reason why he chose close-quarters combat. And at this moment, when he sees the meteor shower, he gains some more understanding of himself.

    Xiao Hei, I havent visited Yan City for about a half year. Lets go for a stroll in Yan City tomorrow. By the way, Im going to fetch that short sword -- the Yuchang sword -- from the Princes mansion, says Qin Yu while stroking Xiao Heis head. Xiao Hei looks at Qin Yu then utters a cry which resounds through the sky. It is obviously very excited.

    The Yuchang sword is a short sword which is made of meteoric metals. As Qin Yu has been practicing the Yu Clan's One Sword, it is the most suitable to use this kind of short sword. Having heard about the swords story from Lian Yan, Qin Yu has decided to fetch that Yuchang sword from the mansion.

    The sky is gradually getting darker. This is the darkness before dawn breaks. Qin Yu waits until it starts to get light then returns to Yan City.

    B1C18: First kills of fury (1)


    Qin Yu, dressed in fitted black clothes, is galloping along the highway on tall black horse, heading directly for Yan City alone. In the sky above his head, a black eagle is soaring with wings spread. It is Qin Yus pet Xiao Hei.

    Feeling strong winds blowing on him, Qin Yus face is full of enjoyment.

    Ha-ha, this feeling is really invigorating. After taking off those 200 jin of weights, my whole body feels light as if its floating. Qin Yu excitedly props his hands against the horse and does a high flip on its back. He spreads his arms, feeling the strong winds, and falls down precisely on the horses back.

    He started training when he was 8 and has been undergoing limit training for 5 years. He has almost never wasted any time. In addition, the flesh of his whole body has been continuously absorbing internal energy and transforming. Therefore, his 5 years of training is at least equal to ordinary peoples 10 years of limit training. Qin Yu already became a veritable external expert.

    His body-maneuvering skill is light, elegant and effective. His speed is fast like a cunning hare. His explosiveness, strength and so on all cannot be matched by those of ordinary experts.

    Hah! Hah! Qin Yu accelerates in excitement. The horse gallops more vigorously and in an instant there is only a trail of dust left on the highway while his silhouette has already disappeared toward its far end.


    As the horse gallops, the scenery on the sides of the road is quickly left behind Qin Yu. He suddenly decelerates and stops. Then he gets off the horse and runs directly toward a village. Qin Yu goes to town for a stroll twice every year. The first time he went to town from Misty Villa, he had a drink of water in this village and became friends with some local children.

    Xiao Shan, Xiao Lu, calls Qin Yu as soon as he reaches the entrance of the village.

    Xiao Yu. A robust youth with an iron shovel in his hands runs out in excitement. This youth is bare-chested, revealing his chunks of muscle. These muscles contain in them an explosive strength. This is none other than Qin Yus good friend Tie Shan, who just turned 16 this year.

    Brother Yu. A little girl with a ponytail also runs out and abruptly embraces Qin Yu. This little girl is Tie Shans little sister Xiao Lu, who is only 8 this year.

    Xiao Yu, how are you? Some villagers around him also enthusiastically greet him. They all know Qin Yu fairly well. After all, he has visited here several times. Qin Yu is dressed differently from normal people but he treats other people extremely nicely. And this is the reason why the villagers like Qin Yu.

    Xiao Lu, Da Shan, I havent come here for about a half year. How are you doing? inquires Qin Yu after them with a smiling expression as he strokes Xiao Lus head tenderly.

    Were doing fine. Tie Shan says laughingly. Next to him, Xiao Lu, with her big round black eyes brightening, suddenly says: Brother Yu, are you thirsty? Im going to fetch water. As she finishes saying, she runs directly towards her home without waiting for Qin Yu to reply.

    When Qin Yu first came to this village at that time, it was because he was thirsty and wanted a drink of water.

    Da Shan, Im going to town right now. If you want to buy something, Ill help you buy it, asks Qin Yu. As soon as Tie Shan hears that, he thinks for a while and says with an uncomfortable smile: I want to buy a somewhat good battle knife. Ive saved nearly enough money to buy one.

    Theres no need to mention your savings. Ill buy one and give it to you as a present. Qin Yu says laughingly while patting Tie Shans shoulder. Tie Shan is a bit stupefied. Then he says immediately: How is it going to be alright? A good battle knife is very expensive. How can

    Brother Yu, water. Xiao Lu runs up to him while holding a bowl of water.

    Qin Yu receives the water. With his eyes narrowed, he smiles and looks at Xiao Lu: You couldnt have done me a favor for no reason. Say it. What do you want your brother Yu to do for you? In a glance Qin Yu sees through the mind of this crafty little girl Xiao Lu.

    Oops Im caught! Xiao Lu winks her big eyes several times and blushes. Then she says uncomfortably: Brother Yu, I want a cloth doll. That kind with a big red flower embroidered on the head!

    Qin Yu laughingly squeezes Xiao Lus nose once and says: I got it. A cloth doll with a big red flower embroidered on the head right? Dont worry. Ill definitely buy it for you. Qin Yu likes this little girl Xiao Lu very much. When he first came here, she was only 5 years old.

    After drinking the water, Qin Yu returns the bowl to Xiao Lu and says to her and Tie Shan: Da Shan, Xiao Lu, Im going first. When I get back Im going to bring you the things you want.

    Xiao Yu, this money. Tie Shan is holding some copper coins in his hands, not knowing what to say. However, Qin Yu is already running to the horse. After a jump, which is about 2 to 3 m high, he sits firmly on the horses back. Then, after a neigh of the horse, Qin Yu disappears in front of them.

    Good bye, brother Yu. Xiao Lu immediately waves her little hand.

    After entering Yan City, Qin Yu goes directly to the East Vanquishing Prince mansion.

    Uncle Li, help me take care of the horse! With a push of the hands, Qin Yu immediately jumps into the air from the horses back. Then he does a flip and falls down. His movements are extremely fast. A black eagle, which has been staying in the sky, dives down and stands directly on Qin Yus shoulder. It is Xiao Hei.

    When the 2 men who are guarding the East Vanquishing Prince mansion see Qin Yu, they immediately kneel down and say respectfully: Third Prince.

    Every time Qin Yu went to Yan City he returned to the Princes mansion so the people in the mansion all know him and know that he comes to the mansion perhaps because he wants to see if his father is at home or not.

    The mansions Manager Ge Min immediately walks out with a smiling expression: Xiao Yu, His Highness has not returned yet. Ge Men says immediately. He knows every time Qin Yu returned to the mansion he wanted to inquire after the Prince so he tells him in advance this time.

    Oh. Qin Yu is slightly dejected. Then he says with a smile: Grandpa Ge, take me to the Weapon Storing Warehouse.

    Then you follow me, says Ge Min with a smile.

    The Weapon Storing Warehouse is not something ordinary people can enter. The mansion has several secret places such as the Weapon Storing Warehouse and the Secret-Book Archive. But there are some people who can enter these places as they wish. They are Prince Qin De, the 3 younger princes, Xu Yuan, Lian Yan and the mansions manager. Not even the vice-manager of the mansion is eligible to come into these places.

    They go through various pavilions, terraces, towers, richly ornamented structures, winding corridors and paths, and one courtyard after another.

    The princely mansion occupies a very large area. Only after following Ge Min for a long time does Qin Yu come into a secret underground warehouse. This secret underground warehouse is called the Weapon Storing Warehouse. Each and every weapon in this warehouse is an outstanding one.

    Xiao Yu, you can choose whichever weapon you want. Im leaving first, says Ge Min laughingly.

    Grandpa Ge, please help me prepare a battle knife, a black iron battle knife! Also, prepare a cloth doll for me. Just remember one thing -- the doll must have a big red flower embroidered on its head. Qin Yu hurriedly entrusts those things to Ge Min. Yan City is very big. Qin Yu knows where to buy a battle knife, but he does not know where to buy a cloth doll. Therefore, it is easiest to let the mansions people prepare them.

    Ge Min is startled: A cloth doll? And even with an embroidered big red flower? He examines Qin Yu all over several times. However, no matter how Ge Min looks at him, he cannot imagine that Qin Yu who has the same height as his actually likes cloth dolls. But because Qin Yu asked him to do so, he cannot refuse either.

    Alright, Xiao Yu, because you like cloth dolls, and even like embroidered big red flowers, Ill send someone to buy one for you, says Ge Min laughingly. After that he walks out of the Weapon Storing Warehouse immediately.

    This Qin Yu is stupefied for a moment. I like cloth dolls, and even like embroidered big red flowers? Only after a while can he react. He immediately turns around and says hurriedly: Grandpa Ge But by this time Ge Min has already left.

    There is nothing Qin Yu can do. What is the matter? He himself is unexpectedly mistaken for a lover of dolls with big red flowers embroidered on the heads.

    Its not important. Qin Yu gives an unconcerned laugh then starts to look for that Yuchang sword carefully. This Weapon Storing Warehouse has several tens weapons, which all belong to the so-called Xian grade of goods. Most of them are made from some good minerals taken from the Wilderness.

    Generally, weapons are divided into mundane-grade ones and Xian-grade ones.

    Mundane-grade items are made from or of minerals and materials which can be found easily on the Qian Long continent. Xian-grade items are extremely hard to acquire. They either are found in the Wilderness or are weapons made from or of materials taken from the bodies of the Wildernesss magical beasts. Of course, the mundane grade is divided into high, middle and low. Likewise, the Xian grade is divided into high Xian grade, middle Xian grade and low Xian grade.

    The Yuchang sword is a low Xian-grade short sword. However, among all the weapons it is the only short sword.

    Yuchang sword, says Qin Yu as he looks at the short sword before him. This sword is 1 cun wide and a bit over 7 cun long. It is pitch-black and unnoticeable. It is very hard to see a sword which is so black. Perhaps this is the special characteristic of the meteoric metals?

    Qin Yu is holding the short sword. This pitch-black Yuchang sword basically does not reflect light. If it is used to kill someone in the dark, it will be absolutely difficult for the target to detect it.


    Qin Yu makes a very rapid movement with his hand. As he finishes the Yuchang sword has already disappeared completely. It has disappeared in his hand.

    Qin Yu has been practicing the Concealing Sword, Drawing Sword principle of the Yu Clan's One Sword for about 2 years. He has almost mastered the Concealing Sword move. When he conceals the short sword, other people basically have no way to detect it. Moreover, this Yuchang sword is only a bit longer than 7 cun, it does not affect Qin Yus close-quarters combat at all.

    Suddenly Qin Yu right hand makes a movement. 2 sharp noises can be heard in the air but Qin Yus right hand is still empty as before.

    If there was an expert here, he would have been able to see that in a moment just now the Yuchang sword appeared in Qin Yu hand, he made 2 extremely fast cuts with it then it instantly disappeared in his hand. His speed was extremely fast. This goes to show the speed of Concealing Sword.

    The sword concealing method of the Yu Clan's One Sword is really outstanding but the Concealing Sword part in the Ancestral Dragon Art book says it will take 10 years to reach my current level in Concealing Sword while I only needed 2 years to achieve it. It looks like the description in the Ancestral Dragon Art book isnt completely correct. Qin Yu sighs and says emotionally.

    He was wrong.

    Ordinary experts will really need 10 years, but the flesh on Qin Yus body has been absorbing internal energy so its flexibility and toughness have become extremely high. Moreover, Qin Yu often trains the speed and sensitivity of his fingers, giving him an exceptionally good control of his muscles. With good muscle flexibility and muscle toughness, add to that a good control of muscles, and Qin Yu can easily conceal the Yuchang sword by means of his muscles. How could ordinary experts train their bodies to this extent?

    It is very normal that his 2 years of practicing the Concealing Sword is equal to ordinary peoples 10 years. It can be seen from this that Zhao Yunxing was absolutely right when he said Qin Yu had to train to have a perfect body first then practice offensive techniques later.

    Grinding the ax does not harm the firewood chopping skill -- It is this principle!

    There are other weapons in the Weapon Storing Warehouse such as knives, spears, sticks and so on but Qin Yu simply does not care about them.

    Itd be better if there was a pair of gloves to enhance the knuckles offensive force. Qin Yu looks around carefully. Even though his knuckles have a powerful offensive force, and are also extremely tough, he cannot fight users of extremely good weapons with bare hands. If his knuckles are protected by a good pair of gloves then he will be able to fight them.

    B1C19: First kills of fury (2)

    After searching for a while, Qin Yu gives up sorrowfully. There is a pair of gloves in the Weapon Storing Warehouse but they do not have separate parts for each finger. Qin Yu simply does not like this kind of gloves because if he were to put them on, he would not be able to use some attacking techniques.

    Alright, Ill make them when I obtain good minerals and materials later. Qin Yu has no choice but to console himself. Then he leaves the Weapon Storing Warehouse.


    Horse hooves are running very fast, as if flying. More than 100 horsemen are galloping at top speed on the highway. The leader is a barbarous man who is about 2 m tall and extremely muscular. This man is dressed in a black robe. His whole body is covered in it. His eyes radiate cold rays of light, looking very eerie.


    The leading barbarous man suddenly makes a wave with his hand and utters a cold shout. Immediately, the troop of over 100 horsemen suddenly stops.

    Third bro, lead a group of horsemen and seize all the money and women of this village. Ill give you 5 minutes. Second bro and I will be some way ahead. Well wait for you at Mount Louting over there. The leading horse man instantly gives his order.

    This is just a small village. 5 minutes? This is too much time. Big brother, dont worry! Brothers, go. A very thin one-eyed man with a long narrow scimitar hung on his back utters a loud shout and leads 50 men toward the village not far from there.

    Then the barbarous muscular man leads the 2 remaining groups of horsemen and heads directly for Mount Luoting.

    Tie Shan, wearing no clothes on the top half of his robust body, is digging the ground in front of the village. Beads of sweat have stood out on his strong back. On one side of him, Xiao Lu is watching the roadside flowers. She is moving her eyes around and indulging in a fantasy.

    Big brother, when will brother Yu return? Xiao Lu looks into the sky. There is a layer of dark clouds in it. The weather is obviously not very nice.

    Tie Shan says with a smile: Xiao Lu, dont worry. Xiao Yu wont forget. At this moment, Tie Shan cannot help remembering he asked Qin Yu to help him buy a battle knife. Tie Shan usually likes to practice martial arts in his spare time. What he wishes for the most is a sharp battle knife.

    Ah, horses, brother Yu has come. Xiao Lu becomes excited as she looks into the distance.

    Tie Shan feels the fierce vibrations on the ground: Wrong, its not one person. He takes a careful look and only sees that several tens people are coming at full gallop in the distance. An idea springs to his mind. He cannot help feeling so frightened that he is out of his wits.

    Run fast, Xiao Lu! Tie Shan grabs Xiao Lu in a movement and rushes toward the village then turns his head around to take a look. At this moment, several tens mounted bandits have drawn near the village. Every one of them is holding a battle knife in his hand. Tie Shan immediately shouts to the village: Mounted bandits are here! Mounted bandits are here!

    Mounted bandits are even more fearsome than ordinary bandits. Because they ride horses, they come without any warning and go without a trace. In addition, they are also more bloodthirsty. Ordinary bandits economize to avoid running short of money, therefore they only rob the surrounding villages a bit. However, it is common for mounted bandits to slaughter a whole village.

    Mounted bandits are here!

    The whole village gets panicky. All the strong adults stay in their rooms with weapons in their hands, whether iron shovels or firewood chopping knives, while children, old people and women hide behind them.

    Hah! The one-eyed man suddenly urges his horse to accelerate. His eye radiates ice-cold rays of light. The horse runs very fast and will catch up with Tie Shan very soon. All the people in the village fear for Tie Shan and his little sister. But none of them dares to come forward.

    There is still a 500 m distance between Tie Shan and the village but the galloping one-eyed man is only 10 m from his back now. With a flash of a light, the long narrow scimitar appears in the one-eyed mans hand. His eye shines with a hint of bloodthirstiness.

    Stop. Suddenly, a robust man charges forward. It is Tie Shans father.

    A hint of coldness appears at the corners of the one-eyed mans mouth. His wrist suddenly makes a movement. The long narrow scimitar immediately spins out of his hand and slashes at Tie Shan like a bolt of lightning. Tie Shan is paying attention to his back. Seeing what is happening, he immediately does a very quick roll on the ground. Luckily he usually trains himself in martial arts so he successfully dodges this blow.

    The one-eyed mans face changes color. Stop! Following a cold humph, with a push of his legs, he jumps high into the air from the horses back. The spinning scimitar has unexpectedly spun back and he gets hold of it in a grab with no difficulty.


    A light flashes. Tie Shan hurriedly does a roll and barely avoids that blow of the scimitar. But --

    Ah! Xiao Lu utters a miserable cry. Tie Shan lowers his head to take a look and sees that Xiao Lus right arm has been cut off. The severed arm is lying at her side. Xiao Lu is in so much pain that her face has turned very white. Just now when Tie Shan was dodging the scimitar, that arm of Xiao Lu in his bosom stuck out and was cut off by chance. Only at this moment does Tie Shans father reach them. Seeing what has just happened, the corners of his eyes wish to crack.


    The scimitar flashes through Tie Shans father and his head flies up. He has been killed in an instant. How can a peasant compare with the number three man of a troop of mounted bandits?

    All of you listen. Bring out all the money and young women and Ill spare your hamlet. Otherwise Ill slaughter everyone, says the one-eyed man with a cold laugh. His hand is holding that scimitar which is dripping with blood.

    All the other mounted bandits ride forward and look down at the villagers.


    A gust of wind suddenly blows. An iron shovel fiercely smashes down onto the head of a mounted bandit with an extremely strong force, creating a very resounding noise. Bang! The head of that mounted bandit is smashed. His blood splatters over a large area on the ground. With a ferocious, distorted expression on his face, Tie Shan is holding an iron shovel in his hands, his arms muscles twisting together. He looks at the mounted bandits before him in hatred.

    Oh, you really killed a brother among us. Brothers, lets slaughter this village. Only the women can be left alive. The one-eyed man says dully. By now he has become angry.

    The other mounted bandits are also angry. In their eyes, a normal village is nothing but a piece of fish meat. Who could have thought a brother among them would die here?

    Father, Xiao Lu. Because his father has been killed and his sisters arm has been severed, Tie Shan cannot think calmly at all. There is only rage in his mind. At the moment he only wants revenge. With the corners of his eyes nearly cracking, he looks at the one-eyed man before him.

    Severed arms fly. Blood splatters.

    The one-eyed man murders one villager after another with ease. Those villagers dying blows do not pose any threat to him. How can ordinary people compare with an internal expert?

    One after another, the villagers Tie Shan knew well in the past have been murdered like this, such as his own big uncle and his big uncles wife. Tie Shans eyes are very red. He is staring so hard that the corners of his eyes have cracked.

    Come, come to kill me. Tie Shan lifts the battle knife on the body of the mounted bandit he killed and slashes at the one-eyed man. But that one-eyed man seems to be playing with Tie Shan. Instead of killing him, he uses a smart art of lightness to kill other people easily while letting Tie Shan chase after him nonstop.

    Seeing the people he knows well being murdered successively, Tie Shan is in so much pain that he wants to go crazy.


    Suddenly -- a thunderous shout resounds through the whole yard. Everyone is startled and stops for a moment.

    Holding a black iron battle knife in one hand and a cloth doll in the other, Qin Yu thus appears on the yard.

    The one-eyed man takes a look at Qin Yu. He slightly narrows his eye then says with a smile: Hello, friend. I am Bai San, the number three man of the Black Wind mounted bandit troop. People call me Scimitar San. May I ask who you are? This Bai San is also an internal expert. He knows in a glance that the juvenile before him is not an ordinary person.

    Xiao Lu. Qin Yu looks at Xiao Lu, whose right arm has been cut off. His heart aches with pity. Fortunately, Qin Yu is proficient in the art of medicine. He immediately pokes some acupoints to stop the wounded arm from bleeding.

    Xiao Lu slowly opens her eyes. Seeing Qin Yu, a faint smiling expression appears on her very while face: Brother Yu. When Xiao Lu sees the bodies of father and of other villagers she knew well around her, her tears cannot help streaming out of her eyes.

    Father, big uncle, uncle!

    Xiao Lus tears keeps rolling down. At the same time, she convulses. The pain of having an arm cut off is really too terrifying to a little girl.

    Seeing that many of the villagers who greeted him warmly a half day ago have died, the sanguinary determination contained in the blood of the Qin clans people starts to boil in Qin Yus veins. His eyes start to blaze with anger.

    Qin Yu carefully puts the cloth doll beside Xiao Lu then he suddenly stands up and throws the black iron battle knife in his hand to Tie Shan: Da Shan, catch the knife. Tie Shan immediately receives the black iron battle knife in a grab. As a fight is going on, a black iron battle knife comes in very useful.

    Qin Yu sees a little severed arm on one side. He knows it is Xiao Lus severed arm. From now on, Xiao Lu will forever be a disabled person.

    The one-eyed man Bai San promptly says laughingly: Friend, youre an expert at any rate. Why bother fighting us Black Wind for a bunch of ordinary people? Instead, you can pick one that you like from these women. What do you think?

    Bai San can see that Qin Yu is an expert. Experts generally have their masters or schools behind them so Bai San does not want to casually offend them. Moreover, in his eye, the juvenile before him is no pushover. If he is to kill this juvenile, he does not know how many mounted bandits will die in the process.

    Youll Qin Yu coldly looks at the several tens mounted bandits in front of him, all die! Qin Yu forcefully utters these few words through his teeth.

    Suddenly --

    Qin Yu appears beside a mounted bandit. His hand changes into a claw and grabs the bandits throat in a movement. Qin Yu coldly looks at the mounted bandit, whose eyes are filled with terror and astonishment. He exerts the strength of his hand and the bandit immediately dies with a clack.

    At the same time, Qin Yu charges toward another mounted bandit like a flash. His legs move like rolling thunder. He performs a fierce kick across the sky. His leg pierces the air and lands heavily on the bandits head. With a bang, the head is smashed. One more mounted bandit is dead.

    Brothers, dont hold back. Kill! By now Bai San has become angry. All the mounted bandits charge at Qin Yu murderously at once.

    Qin Yu is very fast. He gets away with just a swaying movement of his body.

    Bang! Qin Yu sends a man flying with a heavy kick. Then he crushes the opponents head immediately with a high cleaving kick.

    Clack! Qin Yu raises his tiptoes and kicks a bandit directly in the throat. The bandit is killed in one kick.

    Hah! Qin Yu shouts loudly. His spear hand strike, which has the most powerful penetrating force, hits an opponent in the stomach. His internal organs are immediately ruptured. That mounted bandit stares until his eyes are round like a ball. He is already dead.

    Bang! Qin Yu turns around and executes a kick. His tiptoes hit a vital point of a mounted bandits spine. The bandit is immediately paralyzed stock-still on the ground.

    With his profound body-maneuvering skill, Qin Yu moves like the wind and attacks extremely fast using his legs and fists. Not even a single mounted bandit is able to withstand his attack. In general, he kills an opponent with only one move. And it takes him at most 2 blows to kill an opponent.

    Because his blows hit vital points, they are extremely devastating.

    Qin Yu has planned everything perfectly since the beginning of his training. Today he can lift an over 100 jin weight and hold it in the air with one arm. Normally he can caper freely with 200 jin of weights on his body. The offensive force of his fists and legs has become extremely formidable. They can absolutely hit a person to death with ease.

    In addition, thanks to Qin Yus body-maneuvering skill, wind is no longer a hindrance to him. Because he fused the art of Qi Men Dun Jia with it, add to that his bodys agility and explosiveness, his body-maneuvering skill has become something with which these men have absolutely no hope of keeping up.

    How is this possible? How is this possible?

    Holding his scimitar, the one-eyed man is watching the scene before him in stupefaction.

    A silhouette is moving at a terrifying speed --

    His fists are fast like lightning. His legs are as stable as a mountain!

    When a punch is thrown, someone falls down. When a kick is executed, someone is sent flying!

    Each dead mounted bandit was killed in an instant. After a short period of a half minute, nearly half of the 50 mounted bandits have been killed.

    Stop. Fight me! The one-eyed man very quickly uses his art of lightness to pursue Qin Yu.

    But Qin Yus body-maneuvering skill is too profound for him. With a swaying movement, which is very strange yet at the same time seems to contain some profound principles, he gets away several meters. The one-eyed man Bai San simply cannot keep up with him. Bai San raises his scimitar and chases after him like a mad man. But he fails to touch even a corner of Qin Yus clothes.

    As he keeps chasing, he sees one mounted bandit after another gets killed with his eyes wide opened.

    Fight me. Dont run if you have skill. Dont run!!! Bai San yells madly. But even if he yells more it will still be useless. The mounted bandits are killed successively. Even though some mounted bandits try to flee on their horses, their attempts prove to be pointless.

    Because Qin Yu is even much faster than horses.

    Qin Yu jumps into the air and performs a tornado kick which ruthlessly hits a panic-stricken mounted bandit in a side of the head -- it is exactly the temple. The mounted bandits head is crushed on the spot. He falls down onto the ground and dies instantly. Qin Yu lands lightly as if floating and coldly looks at the last mounted bandit -- Bai San.

    In a mere minute, 50 mounted bandits are all dead except for one -- Bai San, the number three man of the Black Wind mounted bandit troop.

    Bai San is holding his scimitar. His only eye glitters nonstop while his throat utters low yowls. In a mere minute, his subordinates are all dead. The Black Wind mounted bandit troop has lost a third of its power, how would Bai San not become terrified?

    Die! Using his lightness art, Bai San charges at Qin Yu at top speed. The scimitar in his hand radiates ice-cold rays of light.

    Qin Yu stands stock-still and watches Bai San charging. Bai Sans eye has reddened. The entire internal energy of his body is bursting forth and the scimitar in his hand is radiating rays of light. His body has also reached the maximum speed. He comes up to Qin Yus face in just a moment. Seeing that Qin Yu still does not make a movement, all of the surviving villagers around become worried. But at this moment --

    In just a swinging movement of his body, Qin Yu has unexpectedly arrived at Bai Sans side. From there he directly hits Bai Sans knee with a kick.

    Clack! The sides of the knee have the weakest resistance and therefore it is smashed in an instant. Ah! Bai San immediately utters a miserable cry. His body shakes. At the same time Qin Yus right hand forms a claw and catches hold of Bai Sans wrist in a grab. The powerful strength of the fingers is suddenly exerted.

    Along with the sound of bones being shattered, Bai Sans right wrist is completely destroyed.


    Using a spear hand strike, Qin Yu directly hits a vital point on Bai Sans throat. He focuses his entire power on the tip of the spear hand and explosively sends forth the most powerful penetrating force he is capable of. After a clear sound is heard, Bai San, with his eyes popping, falls down on the ground with a loud sound. He can never get up again.

    In just a bit over a minute, an entire 50 strong group of the Black Wind mounted bandit troop has been exterminated!

    B1C20: Life or death (1)

    Various horse neighs rise nonstop. Because the mounted bandits are all dead, these horses get confused. They scatter and gallop away, creating tumbling clouds of dust which cover the former battlefield for a while. The dust enfolds Qin Yu in the middle of the battlefield.

    The living villagers all look at the blur of Qin Yus body in the middle of the dust in astonishment. Originally, in the eyes of them, Qin Yu was only a kind-hearted polite juvenile. Who could believe that just now this juvenile annihilated an entire group of mounted bandits which they think was extremely terrifying in just a little while. The mounted bandits could not even put up any kinds of resistance.

    Everybodys eyes all focus on Qin Yu. But at this moment, he is gasping for breath with his head held low.

    No one knows what Qin Yu is thinking. Because he is gasping for breath with his head held low, no one sees his facial expression. They have no way to imagine the turmoil in Qin Yus heart at the moment. Even though he was extremely resolute when he was killing the bandits, this is after all the first time he has ever killed someone.

    The first time!

    Qin Yu treats people very sincerely so it is very difficult for him to have an intention of killing someone. Just moments ago, because he saw that lovely Xiao Lu had had her arm cut off and that several tens pure and simple villagers had been killed, his killing intent surged up. In the heat of his fury, he killed every single mounted bandit.

    Did I do the right thing? Qin Yus mind is a bit terrified.

    Even though he is strong-willed, after all he is still only a 13 year old juvenile, only a juvenile. If a juvenile who normally treats people sincerely and kindly killed 50 people in one go, even if he was more strong-willed than Qin Yu is, he would still become terrified.

    Qin Yus body cannot help starting to tremble.

    Xiao Yu. Tie Shan runs up to Qin Yu and strokes his shoulders. Qin Yu raises his head. His eyes are having a hint of irresolution.

    Xiao Yu, I know what you are feeling because this is also the first time Ive killed someone. But you must understand they were fiends. They deserved to die. If you hadnt killed them, they wouldve slaughtered the whole village. Killing an evil man can save 100 people. Evil men of this kind should be killed. Moreover, they should be exterminated! Tie Shan says while staring at Qin Yu. The bottom of his heart is still filled with hatred as before. The death of his father and the severed arm of his sister have made him even more furious at those mounted bandits.

    Qin Yus body slightly shakes once.

    Killing an evil man can save 100 people. Qin Yu mumbles to himself. His head is being held low as before.

    Tie Shan cannot see the expression on head-bowing Qin Yus face so he does not know what Qin Yu is thinking. After a while, Qin Yu finally raises his head. His eyes are shining brilliantly. He turns to Tie Shan on his side and says: Thank you, Da Shan. I think I already understand.

    Suddenly, Qin Yu has a faint smile on his face: Da Shan, why havent you quickly gone help other people?

    Ah, youre right. Tie Shans mind has also been completely clouded by hatred. After being reminded by Qin Yu, he immediately starts to help the seriously injured villagers together with the other villagers.

    In Xiao Lus home,

    With a very white face, Xiao Lu is lying on the bed. Qin Yu is quietly watching her from a side of the bed. With a very complicated expression he thinks: Xiao Lu, sorry. I was late. Sorry. Im really sorry. After getting the black iron battle knife and the cloth doll in the princely mansion, he went for a good stroll in Yan City before returning.

    If he had come back a bit faster, perhaps Xiao Lu would not have had her arm cut off.

    Im sorry. As soon as Qin Yu remembers how Xiao Lu held a bowl of tea in both hands and gave it to him to drink, his heart aches and his eyes are full of mournfulness.

    Suddenly --

    Qin Yu stands up. His eyes glitter with startling cold rays of light. Staring outside the window, Qin Yus resolute face emits an indescribable radiance: Father, big brother and second brother said, there are 10 billion people on the Qian Long continent, including all kinds of people. I mustnt take advantage of anyones benevolence and should treat people sincerely. But these few malicious people ought to be killed, killed until none of them is left!!!

    Qin Yus eyes are blazing.

    Qin Zheng, Qin Feng and East Vanquishing Prince Qin De have all been worried about Qin Yu because he is too kind-hearted and on the Qian Long continent where only the fittest survive he will be at a big disadvantage with this kind of mindset. But Qin De, Qin Zheng and Qin Feng also believe that Qin Yu will grasp how to conduct in society because in the history of the Qin clan there has never been anyone who is so kind-hearted. The Qin clans people all have a sanguinary determination in the depths of their veins.

    But the fight just now really made my blood boil with excitement. Qin Yus eyes glitter. His head is full of the scenes of the fight just now -- used the minimum amounts of power, hit the most vital points, made every bit of strength explosively send forth the most powerful offensive force, used the top speed, directly killed the opponents.

    In close-quarters combat, life or death is decided quickly in a moment.

    Among them, only the one-eyed man was a bit difficult. The other men were too weak. Only by fighting experts of the same level as mine can I experience the passion of fighting. Unleashing the most powerful fighting power on the border between life and death, burning the passion of life this is just like a meteor. Qin Yu recalls the sight of the meteors.

    At this moment Tie Shan enters the room. He goes directly to the side of Xiao Lus bed then looks at her little face. Their mother passed away when she was giving birth to Xiao Lu due to difficult labor. Now that their father is also dead, Xiao Lu has become Tie Shans only one relative.

    Xiao Lu, Im sorry. Big brother is really sorry. Tie Shan gently strokes Xiao Lus face. His expression is very mournful.

    Da Shan. Qin Yu walks to Tie Shans side and pats his shoulder to console him. They both tenderly look at Xiao Lu, who is still sleeping deeply. They cannot imagine how she will take all of this after she wakes up.


    At the moment, the Black Wind mounted bandit troop is taking a rest at Mount Luoting not far from the village.

    Big brother, it seems wrong. Why hasnt that brat Bai San come? Its been a long time. A middle-aged man whose body is fully covered in a black robe comes to that barbarous mans side and says with a frown. This middle-aged man is none other than Gu Ming, the number two of the Black Wind mounted bandit troop. His internal energy is very profound. It is said that he has reached the late phase of the Houtian level. He is far superior to the third brother of the Black Wind mounted bandit troop.

    The barbarous man has a very strong and large body. His muscles are also extremely developed. In theory, a person of a muscular build is simple-minded. But even the second brother Gu Ming of the Black Wind mounted bandit troop is extremely frightened of this big brother, not only because he is powerful, but also because he has a savage heart.

    Wu Tuan, the big brother of the Black Wind mounted bandit troop, has reached the peak of the Houtian level. His internal energy is exceptionally terrifying. The third brother Bai San could not even take a strike from him.

    Humph! Wu Tuan utters a cold humph and stands up. Suddenly he gives the rock beside him a slap. That rock shakes once then completely shatters into pieces with a boom. Countless rock fragments scatter over a wide area on the ground. In terms of overall power, this Wu Tuan can be comparable to the 8 external experts from whom Qin Yu could choose his master at that time. He is much more powerful than the current Qin Yu. It can be thought that the Black Wind mounted bandit troops notoriety has been gained by Wu Tuan alone.

    Cold rays of light radiate from the eyes of black-robed Wu Tuan.

    Trash, this piece of trash Bai San has really wasted so much time. Everybody follows me to take a look and see what has happened! After Wu Tuan gets on his horse, he immediately gives an order. His voice sounds extremely chilling. Following the order, 100 mounted bandits including the second brother Gu Ming mount their horses at once.


    Wu Tuan gives an order and 100 mounted bandits immediately urge the horses to accelerate. They head for that village, which was just struck by disaster, at a gallop

    B1C21: Life or death (2)

    With his arms crossed on his chest, Qin Yu is watching the boundless sky through the window. A black eagle is quietly standing on his shoulder. Not long ago, when he was on the way back after leaving Yan City, the black eagle went to somewhere else. It only returned for a short while ago. Qin Yu knows the black eagle went to look for food. At Misty Villa, it is out to look for food during most of the time of a day.

    Mounted bandits are here again!

    Various terrifying noises come in from outside the village. Qin Yu cannot help frowning. His feet can feel clearly the faint vibrations on the ground.

    Mounted bandits are coming again! Tie Shan beside Xiao Lu suddenly stands up as soon as he hears that. He catches the black iron battle knife beside him in a grab. Qin Yu is already going toward the door of the room: Da Shan, very many people are coming. Perhaps there are about 100 of them! As Qin Yu finishes saying, he has disappeared. The black eagle on his shoulder soars high into the sky.

    Tie Shan immediately grasps the black iron battle knife. He charges toward the outside of the village while burning with killing intent.

    Outside the village,

    The barbarous-looking black-robed Wu Tuan goes to the side of Bai Sans corpse and examines it carefully.

    Oh, who couldve thought this small place actually had an external expert. Wu Tuan slightly raises the corners of his mouth and cast a disdainful look at those villagers before him. Those villagers have become extremely frightened. The axes and choppers in their hands are also trembling.

    Wu Tuan gives a disdainful laugh then he glances over them. Suddenly his eyes totally focus on Qin Yu, who has just appeared, and carefully examine the clothes on Qin Yus body. Wu Tuan bursts out laughing: Amigo, it seems you dont live in this small village.

    Even though the style of Qin Yus clothes is common, Wu Tuan is shrewd and he can tell in a glance that Qin Yus clothes are made from extremely valuable materials and cannot be worn by ordinary people.

    Correct, replies Qin Yu. Youre the leader of the Black Wind mounted bandit troop?

    Smart, is it you who killed Bai San? Wu Tuan points at the body at his feet and asks in a very unconcerned manner. Qin Yu slightly nods. Seeing Qin Yus nod, Wu Tuan smiles broadly but the look in his eyes turns ice-cold.

    Knowing he was in our Black Wind mounted bandit troop, you still dared to do him in? The energy on Wu Tuans body unexpectedly surges. The black robe he is wearing flutters in the air at once, revealing the terrifying muscles on Wu Tuans body. Brothers, what should we do? Wu Tuan looks at the men behind him.

    Kill! All of the mounted bandits have become extremely furious after seeing those 50 corpses. At this moment they all raise their battle knives.

    Wu Tuan looks at Qin Yu: Little brother, we two will play with each other. The loser will die, alright?

    Qin Yus body slightly moves. His whole body emits cracking sounds. His 10 fingers slightly curl up. With blazing eyes, he looks at Wu Tuan in front of him: You must be stronger than that Bai San, right? Dont disappoint me.

    Second bro, slaughter this village. Let me play with this brat. Wu Tuan gives the order very nonchalantly.

    Yes, big brother!

    Gu Mings eyes immediately shine. He says with excitement: Brothers, slaughter this village. Remember, leave some women alive. Ha-ha, lets roll! A flexible sword suddenly appears in Gu Mings hand. He stands aside and watches Wu Tuan and Qin Yu. He unexpectedly does not intend to take part in the forthcoming massacre. In his eyes, killing the ordinary people in the village is simply not worthy of the participation of a late-phase Houtian expert like him.

    What? Slaughter the village? Qin Yu is shocked. His mind immediately becomes very anxious.

    No matter what, I wont let them massacre the village. To catch the bandits, first catch the leader. Ill kill this big brother first and talk later. Qin Yu makes a dash. Like a floating cotton fiber in a breeze, his body follows a fantastic path of movement and arrives at Wu Tuans face.

    Very fast speed, very exquisite body-maneuvering skill, thinks Wu Tuan to himself, secretly startled. But his body remains motionless.


    A low sweeping kick is executed. Qin Yu usually trains the strength of his legs under the waterfall, add to that he often does weight-carrying deep squats or weight-carrying long-distance running, therefore his legs has been experiencing the largest strength training load possible. On Qin Yus whole body, legs are the parts with the most powerful offensive force.

    Right in his first attempt, Qin Yu uses his strongest strike.


    Qin Yus right leg ruthlessly hits Wu Tuans foot. What? Qin Yus face suddenly changes color greatly. A terrifying stream of energy suddenly transfers to his leg from Wu Tuans foot. Not only does it ward off Qin Yus strike easily, it also proceeds to attack Qin Yu.

    Go die! Using a high cleaving kick, Wu Tuan slashes his leg downward like a big chopper. Qin Yu immediately makes a push with his hands and his whole body shoots up into the air like a bird. Soon afterwards he does a flip and runs away.

    Wu Tuans leg fiercely smashes onto the ground, creating a resounding thunderous noise and causing a lot of dust to fly up. When the dust has disappeared, a large hole is revealed before everybodys eyes. Since a mere kick was already so powerful, Wu Tuans real power, no doubt, is extremely terrifying.

    Rotten brat. Wu Tuan suddenly rages.


    Qin Yu extends his hand and forms a claw. He immediately grabs and breaks a vital point of a mounted bandits spine. His body continuously makes dashes. Agile like a catkin in a breeze, and fast like lightning, Qin Yus body, whose flexibility and toughness have reached a very high level through training, performs his body-maneuvering skill perfectly. He flashes back and forth through various mounted bandits.

    One strike -- someone dies!

    Basically, no time is wasted. Wherever he goes to, the mounted bandits at that place will only die.

    That guy is so terrifying. Having practiced his internal technique to that extent, according to Grandpa Lian, he should be one of those experts who have reached the peak of internal practice. Perhaps hes in the same league as the 8 external experts at that time. He is really too strong. My attack simply cant break his defense. Qin Yu is shaken up. I must take care of these normal mounted bandit first.

    Qin Yus original plan was to catch the bandits, first catch the leader but it later failed. Worried that too many villagers will be killed, he has decided to annihilate the normal mounted bandits first.

    All the normal mounted bandits have become extremely frightened. This juvenile is really too terrifying. He can destroy anyone of them with a strike whereas they are not internal experts. These normal mounted bandits are much weaker than Bai San in overall power. Even Bai San was killed by Qin Yu with ease, then how can these men put up any resistance?

    Brothers, lets kill him together. A mounted bandit shouts loudly. The other mounted bandits suddenly come to their senses and stop bother themselves with killing villagers. Then so many people join together and attack Qin Yu.

    Be careful, shouts Tie Shan hurriedly. The other villagers who are watching also fear for Qin Yu.

    But Qin Yu gives an unconcerned smile.

    Attack together? When the speed of my body-maneuvering skill reaches its limit, I wouldnt get a tiny scratch even if surrounded by a large army. Now there are no more than several tens mounted bandits, what do they amount to? Qin Yus body charges into the middle of the mounted bandits like lightning.

    Even though these mounted bandits hurriedly slash at him in a chaotic manner, Qin Yu avoids their strikes with no difficulty. Every time he executes a kick or throws a punch, he can kill a mounted bandit with ease.

    Brat, if you have skill then dont hide. Wu Tuan rushes at him at a very fast speed.

    This fellow is too strong. Its better to get away first. Qin Yu spreads his body and greatly increases the range of his movements. From the periphery of the crowd he successively kills the normal mounted bandits. Even though Wu Tuans overall power is very great, in terms of body-maneuvering skills, he seems to be inferior to Qin Yu.

    Second bro, quickly come here! Wu Tuan shouts loudly.

    That Gu Ming immediately charges forward. Unlike in the other aspects, his lightness art and body-maneuvering skill are a bit better than Wu Tuans. But facing Qin Yus unusual body-maneuvering skill, he still cannot do anything. He sees Qin Yu in front of him but at the next moment Qin Yu has gone several meters away to one side.


    With his eyes wide opened, a mounted bandit utters a miserable shrill scream but his head immediately flies into the air because Qin Yus extremely fast piercing kick has unexpectedly decapitated him outright. This is the last normal mounted bandit. In just about 5 minutes, nearly 100 mounted bandits have been annihilated.

    Qin Yu had to slow his attack speed down to this extent mostly because there have been 2 great experts Wu Tuan and Gu Ming around him.


    Qin Yu makes a push with his feet. His body shoots up into the sky. Unexpectedly he jumps onto a fork of a tree outside the village and stands on the trees fork. Qin Yu coldly looks at the 2 great experts below him.

    This bastard dared to kill all of my brothers. Ill definitely tear him apart!!! Wu Tuan is extremely furious. His entire power bursts forth. The black robe on his body is unexpectedly blown up into rags, which drift up in the air. There are various visible streams of energy revolving around Wu Tuans body. The muscles of his whole body are still vibrating.

    Impertinent Bull Power -- even though it is an internal technique, it is one which combines muscle strength with internal methodology. In addition to being born with great strength, Wu Tuan has been practicing the Impertinent Bull Power. Therefore, thanks to the combination of internal and external strengths, he has really reached the peak of the Houtian level. His overall power is terrifyingly strong.

    Big brother, let me cut him up alive! Gu Mings eyes radiate with coldness and cruelty. His internal energy is rolling in his body. In terms of internal energy alone, he and Wu Tuan are on a par. Only thanks to the combination of internal energy and physical strength can Wu Tuan be more powerful than he is. How can ordinary people like Bai San compare with these 2 great experts?

    Looking at the 2 great experts before him, Qin Yu complains bitterly to himself: That big brother of the mounted bandits has reached the peak of the Houtian level and can compare with the 8 external experts at that time. This flexible-sword-wielding second brother of the mounted bandits isnt far from him in power. Moreover his weapon is the flexible sword of the heterodox schools. If he channels internal energy into it, his attack will definitely be extremely odd.

    B1C22: Life or death (3)

    It doesnt matter which one of them Ill fight head-on, I wont have much chance of winning. In a short while, Qin Yu makes a comparison between their power levels. At the present he also does not know what he should do. After all he is still no more than a 13 year old juvenile. Even though he can be considered an external expert, he is still far from reaching the level of external great-masters such as Zhao Yunxing.

    The only things on which Qin Yu can depend are his body-maneuvering skill and close-quarters offensive techniques which he has researched and figured out on his own.

    Die, brat! Gu Ming shouts furiously. His eyes radiate ice-cold rays of light. He straightens his sword tightly and points it at Qin Yu. His whole body shoots up into the sky like an arrow leaving a bow and flies directly toward the tree fork where Qin Yu is standing.

    Qin Yus body immediately moves. Agile like a monkey, he moves around the big tree down onto the ground.

    Stay where you are! Gu Ming immediately charges down from the tree fork. However Qin Yu gives a cold laugh: Never knew a mounted bandit leader can also use a sneak attack. As he is saying, he has already gone away 10 meters. The place where he was standing just now has been smashed into a large hole by Wu Tuan with a kick.

    You actually knew I was attacking from behind. Youve got some skill. Wu Tuan raises his eyebrows.

    But Qin Yu feels confident. What are the principles of his body-maneuvering skill? They are to feel winds forces, and to turn wind resistance into assistance. It can be said that even with his eyes closed Qin Yu can still use his body to feel the wind forces around him easily.

    Whenever a person around him makes a movement, it causes the wind to change and naturally Qin Yu can detect that. This is also the secret of how, when Qin Yu was being ganged up on by a lot of people, he could still evade easily and kill fast like a wave of the hand.

    Want to sneak up on me? Dream on! Qin Yu stares at the 2 big enemies. He is extremely furious.

    Second bro, this brats body-maneuvering skill is strange, lets attack together! Wu Tuan gives an order. Gu Ming and Wu Tuan immediately activate the internal energy in their bodies and charge toward Qin Yu together at top speeds. At their top speeds Gu Ming and Wu Tuan cause strong winds but Qin Yu is the contrary.

    He makes swinging movements with his body in a very skillful and relaxed manner. Even though his speed is fast, he is creating very few sounds of wind. Only someone near him can hear the sounds.

    My body-maneuvering skill is not completed yet. If it was completed, I would be fast like lightning without causing any wind. Qin Yu secretly sighs. But at this moment he hears the sharp sounds of the winds caused by the 2 men at his back. Qin Yu gives a disdainful smile. In just a while, he has already gone away several hundred meters, leaving the 2 men far behind him.

    Dont run! Wu Tuan and Gu Ming are extremely furious but they can do nothing. In front of them, Qin Yus whole body is powerful like a hunting leopard and nimble like a cunning hare. They cannot even hear the wind sounds caused by the very fast movements of his whole body.

    Hey, two old farts, catch me if you can, says Qin Yu laughingly. Taking on 2 opponents, he has no chance of winning. Therefore he can only depend on his body-maneuvering skill.

    Qin Yu runs away. The 2 men at his back hurriedly chase after him, but the more they chase the more furious and exasperated they get. They simply have no way to catch up with Qin Yu. Furthermore, as they chase him, the distance between them and Qin Yu grows longer. Qin Yu continuously mocks them with words. Suddenly --

    Brat, if you keep running Ill slaughter the whole village. Wu Tuan suddenly shouts loudly. As if struck by lightning, Qin Yus body stops moving.

    What do you want to do! Qin Yu slowly turns around and coldly looks at the 2 men not far from him.

    Ha-ha, finally youve stopped running. Wu Tuan raises his head and says with loud laughs. Then he stares at Qin Yu like a poisonous scorpion: You still asked what I want to do? You killed those 100 brothers of mine and you still asked what I want to do? Ha-ha-ha, this is really laughable, man!!!

    Gu Ming beside him laughs coldly while looking at Qin Yu.

    Just keep running. You can run yourself, but those villagers wont get away. This small village also has several hundred people. Itll be very easy to kill them all. Why arent you running, brat? asks Wu Tuan while looking at Qin Yu. He seems very doubtful.

    Seeing the expression on Wu Tuans face, Qin Yu has only 1 word to describe him in his mind -- psycho!

    Xiao Yu, quickly run, dont care about us. Quickly run! Tie Shan shouts loudly. He is so worried that his whole face has reddened. Just now he saw Wu Tuan smash a large hole into the ground with a mere kick. Then he saw that Qin Yu had no intention of killing him in one blow as he did ordinary mounted bandits. Instead, Qin Yu kept running. Therefore, he knows that Qin Yu is obviously no match for these 2 mounted bandit leaders.

    Qin Yus face is expressionless. He only stares at Wu Tuan and Gu Ming before him.

    Youre very good, very chivalrous, right? Who couldve thought you wouldnt run because of these worthless people? Wu Tuan clenches his fists, creating various cracking sounds immediately. He laughs coldly while looking at Qin Yu: Brat, youre very righteous. I dont want you to tie your own hands and surrender. I only want you to stop running and have a fight with me.

    Cut the crap! If you want to fight me then fight me! Qin Yus face is still expressionless as before.

    Wu Tuan is startled. Then he laughs out loud: I respect you. Youre a little juvenile but youre so righteous and chivalrous. Too bad, chivalrous men will all die in the end. As he is saying he takes one step after another toward Qin Yu.

    Qin Yus mind is calm. He focuses all of his attention on Wu Tuans body. He knows Wu Tuans overall power is far superior to his therefore he must be calm and must get hold of the enemys weak points. He has no choice but to wait for the opponent to make a mistake to deliver a fatal blow.

    Ha-ha, taste my fist! Wu Tuan has come near Qin Yu. Suddenly his body charges ferociously at him like a buffalo. The internal energy of the peak-Houtian Impertinent Bull Power internal technique inside his body completely bursts forth. All of his muscles bulge out and his blue veins stick out even more. There are various streams of energy revolving around his right fist. No one can have any doubts about the power of this fist.

    Qin Yu suddenly narrows his eyes. His body suddenly flies up with the wind like a butterfly. At the same time he extends his hand, forms a claw and fiercely grabs the joint of Wu Tuans right wrist.

    Break for me! Qin Yu violently opens his eyes and utters a furious shout! At the same time the power of his right claws fingers totally bursts forth. His terrifying finger strength as a result of 5 years of limit training can easily rend a brick in a grab of a hand. Qin Yus finger strength is undoubtedly very great. At this moment, the place Qin Yu is grabbing is exactly the joint of the right wrist.

    Humph! Wu Tuan gives a cold laugh.

    What?! Qin Yu feels that his 5 fingers are attacked by a powerful sphere of energy and they tingle as if he is getting an electric shock. No good! Qin Yu simply has no time to continue to attack. He immediately squats down at a very fast speed and throws a palm strike at the ground with his left hand. His whole body springs up from the ground obliquely and escapes to one side.


    Wu Tuans heavy leg whizzes to the place where Qin Yu was at a moment ago. If Qin Yu had been a bit slower, he would have been hit by Wu Tuans kick.

    Qin Yus face suddenly changes color. He also immediately makes a dash. Feeling an acute pain coming instantly from his left shoulder, he makes 2 more dashes. After getting away 10 meters, he turns around and coldly looks at Gu Ming, who has just sneaked up on him.

    So dangerous. Qin Yu stares at Gu Ming. However, his left shoulder is hurting terribly and also leaking blood nonstop.

    When he just escaped from Wu Tuans attack a moment ago, that Gu Ming had already prepared a sneak attack. Soon after Qin Yu stood still, Gu Mings flexible sword, aimed directly at a vital point of his heart, also reached his back. Luckily Qin Yus body made a movement sideways and therefore this fatal sword blow only pierced his left shoulder.

    Your reaction was really quite fast. Even this couldnt kill you. Gu Ming sticks out his tongue and has a taste of the blood on his sword. Then with his eyes wide opened, he says in excitement: Your blood tastes really good. Very fresh and clean, without another taste mixed into it. You must be a virgin boy, right?

    But Qin Yu is thinking about how to deal with these 2 men.

    Even though his own power is pretty good, he cannot compare with Wu Tuan, who has been practicing the Impertinent Bull Power to the peak of the Houtian level and was born with great strength. That man Gu Ming is even more like a poisonous snake. That flexible sword can attack sneakily at any time.

    Dont run. If you run Ill slaughter the villagers. Wu Tuan walks up to him while laughing menacingly.

    Looking at Wu Tuan in front of him then looking at those pitiful villagers, who do not seem to have any power to resist, Qin Yu cannot help clenching his fists. But he feels the continual burning pains coming from his left shoulder. At least his left hands offence will be negatively affected.

    Speed, that Wu Tuans speed is slower than mine. Use speed. Qin Yu secretly decides.

    Die, brat! Wu Tuan gives a cold laugh and suddenly smashes his bulrush-fan-like big hand down. Agile like a monkey, Qin Yu moves to one side and throws a punch at Wu Tuans armpit with his entire power. Wu Tuan easily blocks this blow simply by withdrawing his arm.

    Bam! Qin Yus right fist hits Wu Tuans shoulder but it seems to have hit a rock.

    Your attack is too weak, says Wu Tuan disdainfully. Indeed, the Impertinent Bull Power fuses his internal energy with his muscle strength so his defense is extremely strong. He is as effective in defense as one who has reached the peak of the Violent Training of the Thirteen Great Protectors. Qin Yus attack basically cannot break his defense.

    Bang! Bang! Bang! Bang! Bang!

    Qin Yus whole body is moving extremely fast. With his hands, he uses various forms of hand strikes such as punches, knife hand strikes, and spear hand strikes to try to attack different vital points nonstop. But Wu Tuans defense is too terrifying. He carefully protects the points which are truly fatal. As for the other places such as joints, Qin Yu is simply unable to overcome their defense.

    Die! While Qin Yu is facing Wu Tuan, a cold light suddenly flashes in his eye. His killing blow is finally executed. He has been waiting for this opportunity -- an opportunity to attack a vital point. The Yu Clan's One Sword must kill the enemy in one hit because if the first strike fails, the second strike will encounter the enemys preparations.

    What?! Wu Tuan can only feel a shaft of black light flashing by --

    Yu Clan's One Sword, Concealing Sword -- Drawing Sword!

    When Qin Yu was delivering a knife hand strike with his right hand, a black short sword suddenly appeared in his hand. This happened so fast that Wu Tuan was not even allowed any time to react. The Yuchang sword turned into a shaft of black light and directly slashed at Wu Tuans throat. The Impertinent Bull Power energy inside Wu Tuans body automatically bursts forth, but the Yuchang sword is definitely not an ordinary sword. It is one of the Xian-grade swords, albeit only low Xian-grade. The Yuchang sword easily cuts through Wu Tuans Impertinent Bull Power energy and slits hit throat!

    Pu! Blood splatters. Wu Tuans eyes are full of unwillingness. Originally he could kill this brat with ease. He was only playing with Qin Yu. In his eyes, this brat simply had no way to even scratch his defense. But by playing with Qin Yu, he threw his own life away in the end -- He has been killed by a juvenile.

    Die! Gu Ming, who has been waiting for a chance, utters a loud shout. When Qin Yus Yuchang sword has just slit Wu Tuans throat, Gu Mings flexible sword has already reached his back. Qin Yu simply has no time to dodge. It looks like he will get killed soon.

    Gu Mings eyes are filled with cruelty and bloodthirstiness. All of the villagers become terrified. At this moment Qin Yu does not even have enough time to think. Gu Mings eyes even radiate excitement as he knows the juvenile before him will die at his hands.


    Suddenly a pair of sharp claws descends from the sky and ruthlessly grabs Gu Mings head. Gu Ming has his whole body pulled up into the air and dies on the spot. At the same time, a series of eagle cries resound through the sky. At this moment, Qin Yu is looking at the body of Wu Tuan, who died due to having his throat slit, in front of him. Then, as he looks at the body of Gu Ming, whose head was crushed by a grab, he gets frightened in retrospect.

    He looks up. Xiao Hei is looking at him with its sharp eyes.

    Thank you, Xiao Hei.

    Qin Yu lets out a deep sigh. Only at this moment does his back break a cold sweat while his heart skips a beat. He was a hairs breadth away from being killed. There is no way to describe clearly the feeling of struggling on the border between life and death. Qin Yus heart has also changed gradually.

    Perhaps I should modify my training methods a bit. Looking into the boundless sky, Qin Yu secretly makes a decision. In this battle Qin Yu killed 150 men and, moreover, he almost died. Other people simply cannot imagine the effects that this battle has on Qin Yu.

    Book 2: Meteoric Tear

    B2C1: Qin Yu after 8 years (1)

    Time goes by. It has been 3 years since that great battle between only one person and more than 100 mounted bandits at the hamlet. Qin Yu has also changed from an 8 year old kid who clenched his teeth to train very hard into a real 16-year-old external expert. 16 years old is the standard age at which a person is considered an adult on the Qian Long continent.

    Xiao Lu was seriously injured and Qin Yu took her to Misty Villa to recuperate. Tie Shan was also taken to Misty Villa to start to train in martial arts under the guidance of the experts at Misty Villa. The father and mother of the two had both passed away so they moved into Misty Villa free of burdens, only that they often return to the village to take a look.

    Breezes are blowing and sweeping fallen leaves up in the air. Outside the main entrance of Misty Villa, 2 guards are chatting to each other in a relatively relaxed manner.

    Xiao Tian, this time Third Prince seems to have been out for a half month without returning, right? A guard with a relatively advanced age looks at the 20-something year old guard on the other side of the entrance and says laughingly.

    The young guard nods and says with a smile: Since Third Prince returned 3 years ago, he has often gone out. Its usual for him to go out for 10 days or a half month. But Third Prince has been trying real hard in practice. Every time he returns from the outside world, he stays at Misty Villa for a few days, but he even spends every single one of those days to train desperately until it is late. Saying up to here, the young guard sighs emotionally.

    The elderly guard shakes his head and says: Xiao Tian, you dont know about this. Youve been here for only a few years so you still dont know how hard-working Third Prince actually is in training. At that time Third Prince was just 8 year old but his training then was so terrifying that us crack soldiers couldnt even bear to see it. 8 year old, you couldnt have imagined. At age 8, the kids of the other families are all playing but Third Prince trained from dawn till dusk. That kind of training mustve been much more painful than the training of the Fierce Tiger Corps!

    The young guard nods.

    All of the crack soldiers and servants at Misty Villa have liked and felt sorry for Qin Yu since the beginning. After seeing his limit training, these crack soldiers and servants even started to admire him in their minds. But for the last 3 years, East Vanquishing Prince Qin De has only visited Misty Villa once.

    Xiao Tian, see, Third Prince has returned! The elderly guards eyes suddenly brighten as he points high toward the sky and says. The young guard also looks up promptly.

    High in the sky, a huge black eagle is soaring with wings spread. This black eagle is even over one size bigger than a normal eagle. The golden feathers on its head look like a crown. The eagle glances over various places down below with its lightning-like sharp eyes, radiating an extremely startling haughtiness. Its sharp claws shine with ice-cold rays of light. No one can have any doubts about their sharpness.

    Such a huge eagle perhaps will be taller than even humans when it stands upright on the ground.

    A black-clad young man is sitting with legs crossed on this black eagle, only that the eagle is flying too high so for the moment no one on the ground can see clearly how this young man looks.

    Suddenly the huge black eagle dives down. The young man on back of the eagle also stands up. At this moment, the guards below can totally see the appearance of the young man. He is about 1.8 m tall and has well-defined facial features. There is always an amicable smiling expression on his face. However he is only wearing a black undershirt made from special materials and a pair of black pants. That black undershirt makes the young mans muscles completely stand out.

    Xiao Hei, you can go find food yourself, says the young man as he pats the black eagles back in a friendly manner. From approximately 100 m high in the air, he unexpectedly jumps off the back of the eagle directly and dives down at an extremely fast speed. His body is like a bolt of lightning and he lands on the ground in just a moment. He dived down at such an extreme speed yet he did not cause any sounds of wind.

    Third Prince! The two guards kneel down and say respectfully at once.

    Uncle Lan, ATian, you are on duty today? All right, Ill come in first. Lets talk later. Qin Yu says to the 2 guards with laughter. He does not insist that these guards, who he knows well, should not kneel down because he also understands that this is a rule of the princely mansion.

    Qin Yu heads directly for the west garden. The servants he meets on the way are all pleasantly surprised.

    Hah, training hard outside is still not as comfortable as staying at the villa. Qin Yu takes off the black undershirt on his body and throws it onto the ground, creating a bang. The noise of the undershirt smashing on the ground is unusually loud, as if a mass of iron has been smashed down.

    This undershirt is made of black gold threads and is strangely heavy. Black gold is extremely valuable, 100 times as valuable as gold. Forging experts were asked to pull black gold into threads then make an undershirt with them. This 100 jin black gold undershirt therefore is a priceless item. The last time Qin De visited Misty Villa, he gave it to Qin Yu. Even if the black gold undershirt could not protect the body, it is still an exceptionally useful piece of equipment for weight-carrying training. Qin Yu naturally was very delighted to receive it.

    Having taken off the guards on his arms and legs, Qin Yu relaxes his entire body.

    A pair of black iron arm guards and a pair of black iron leg guards, added to that a black gold undershirt, and the total weight reaches 300 jin. Qin Yu never took them off even when he was out training hard or went to sleep. But at this moment he is going into the hot spring to take a bath. Without the 300 jin of weights on his body, Qin Yu feels very comfortable.

    Ha-ha, hot spring, Ive missed you to death! Qin Yu laughs out loud and says. Wearing only a pair of shorts and with nothing on the top half of his robust body, he jumps into the hot spring.

    Phew, it feels good, really good. Qin Yu lets out a deep sigh comfortably. Even though Misty Villas hot spring can transform a body fantastically Qin Yu has often soaked in it since he was little and therefore it can no longer improve his body. However its fatigue-relieving effect is still as good as before.

    When he has been soaking in the hot spring for a half hour, Lian Yan comes to the west garden.

    Xiao Yu, I knew you would come here once you returned. Almost your entire body has become relaxed, right? Its time to get out. However Lian Yan has been specifically waiting for a half hour. Only after estimating that Qin Yus whole body has become all but relaxed does he come here.

    Wait a minute, Grandpa Lian. Qin Yu washes the black gold undershirt, leg guards and arm guards on the shore of the hot spring then rushes directly into a room beside the hot spring. It is a locker room. In a short while, Qin Yu, having changed completely into clean clothes, comes out.

    As Lian Yan looks at Qin Yu, his eyes are filled with kindness. Seeing that Qin Yu has become an adult from a kid, Lian Yans heart is full of satisfaction.

    Xiao Yu, it is your sixteenth birthday in 3 months. At that time your father will invite a lot of guests to the princely mansion and carry out a ceremony of adulthood for you. You must remember this. Dont stroll about outside so far that you wont be back in time for the ceremony of adulthood, says Lian Yan with a smile.

    Dont worry. How can I forget my own birthday? Ceremony of adulthood, therell surely be a shocking number of people in the princely mansion at that time. Qin Yu says with emotion. He remembers his second brothers ceremony of adulthood 4 years ago. At that time there were also so many people that he was shocked.

    Theres no need to mention it. This is the ceremony of adulthood for a son of East Vanquishing Princes. Even the emperor will send people to attend it. Most of the rich and powerful people in the whole Chu kingdom will also come, says Lian Yan with a laugh, but also with a hint of haughtiness. After all East Vanquishing Prince has a high status in the Chu kingdom. It can be said that he is second only to the Chu emperor. Alright, Xiao Yu, I wont trouble you anymore. Ah, Xiao Shan and Xiao Lu both have returned to the village for a visit. Youre really unlucky with your return this time.

    Well, I even found it strange just now. Every time I returned before, Xiao Lu immediately came to find me. But today she hasnt come yet. So thats the reason. Qin Yu nods and says laughingly. Then Lian Yan leaves. Qin Yu immediately goes to his familiar training ground.

    On one side of the training ground, there are various blue rocks. The smallest of them weighs only 100 jin, but the heaviest is over 1000 jin.


    Qin Yus eyes suddenly brighten. Uttering a low shout and using a kick with his tiptoes, he unexpectedly sends a 300 jin blue rock flying 7 or 8 meters up in the air. Qin Yu extends his right hand and with only this hand he grabs and stops this 300 jin blue rock completely. After holding the rock in the air for about 10 seconds, he makes a shaking movement with his right hand and conveniently throws it to one side.

    Supporting 300 jin with one arm while carrying weights is almost my current limit. Qin Yu secretly makes a judgment.

    Because his arm can lift 300 jin, when he throws a punch, the offensive force of the punch will be really terrifying. It can even be heavier than 1000 jin. After all, what weight an arm can lift and the offensive force of a punch are totally different things. Today, if Qin Yu encountered Wu Tuan again, he would definitely be able to kill Wu Tuan without resorting to the Yuchang sword.

    Still wearing weights on his body, Qin Yu goes into the middle of the sandbag formation. Sandbags are hung all around him. If a sandbag moves, the other sandbags will move as well. Therefore the sensitivity requirement of training with them is very high.


    Qin Yu suddenly throws a punch. The sandbag he hit immediately moves. The other sandbags also move. The sandbags around Qin Yu ram into each other. Qin Yu, however, closes his eyes with a smile. His fists easily punch any sandbag which approaches him.

    If the truth be told, Qin Yus speed at the moment is not fast at all, but he is still warding off the attack of all the sandbags.

    He can do this thanks to his profound body-maneuvering skill. Whenever a sandbag comes at him, it causes changes in the wind. Depending on the changes of the wind, Qin Yu can easily ward off every single strike of the sandbags. In fact, at the moment Qin Yu would not be able to move faster even if he wanted to because he is carrying 300 jin of weights. If he could still move like lightning under these conditions, he would be too terrifying.

    Bang! Bang! Bang! Bang! Bang! Bang!

    Following a series of explosive noises, every sandbag has been burst by Qin Yu with a single punch. At this moment, Qin Yu finally opens his eyes. There is a hint of a satisfied smile on his face. The body-maneuvering skill I created myself -- the Seven North Stars Moonlight Dance -- is really not bad after its completion.

    At this moment Qin Yu remembers the battle that night -- how he himself killed the opponent with the Yuchang sword in the moonlight. Because this body-maneuvering skill uses the Seven North Stars principle of Qi Men Dun Jia as its foundation, and it was completed in the moonlight, it has been named the Seven North Stars Moonlight Dance. After this body-maneuvering skill was completed, not only can Qin Yu confuse the enemy with the effects of Qi Men Dun Jia, he also does not experience any wind resistance and does not cause any wind noises when moving.

    B2C2: Qin Yu after 8 years (2)

    A month later, on a street of a city, it is already late at night so there is not a soul to be seen. The cold winds, which are sharp like knives, cause sumptuously-dressed Hao Tan, who is standing in the middle of the street, to narrow his eyes uncontrollably. His entire attention is being focused on a silvery-masked man before him.

    This silvery-masked man is about 1.75 m tall and is standing with his arms crossed on the street. The silvery mask only reveals his mouth, nose and eyes.

    Hao Tan, quickly prepare well, Ill get started soon, says the silvery-masked man with an ice-cold voice.

    Oh, since when have the Heavenly Nets silver card assassins been so righteous? Hao Tan says with a cold laugh. Silver card assassins, only the assassins who have killed peak-Houtian experts can have the qualifications to get a silvery mask. Too bad assassins all hide in the dark and use sneak attacks. If you had sneaked up on me, you mightve been successful, but you intercepted me on the street

    Hao Tan is confident. His power has reached the peak of the Houtian level. A silver card assassin is also a peak-Houtian expert so the two of them are on a par. This assassin before him must be out of his head to have intercepted him openly. Hao Tan thus feels confident.

    This is bad. Who holds such a grudge against me that he issued a mission to kill me at the Heavenly Net? If its true then this is terrible. Hao Tans head cannot help breaking a cold sweat.

    The Heavenly Net is undoubtedly the number one assassination organization. Its history is longer than 1000 years and its influence has spread throughout the whole Qian Long continent. Its foundation is even more profound than that of the 3 big dynasties. The 3 big dynasties also have no way to find out who the leader of this Heavenly Net organization is. The Heavenly Net is powerful, and no one has ever had any doubts about this.

    The Heavenly Net is divided into Inner Net and Outer Net.

    The Inner Net is made up of the assassins whom the Heavenly Net trains by itself and who are absolutely loyal to the Heavenly Net. The Outer Net consists of some mercenary experts. These experts do not want to pledge allegiance to and join the Heavenly Net therefore they have become members of the Outer Net.

    The membership of the Outer Net is very complicated. Even a great master might be one of its members. But it does not matter who a member is, they do not know the identities of the other Outer Net members. Even the Heavenly Net itself has never investigated the real identities of the Outer Net members.

    The assassins are divided into gold card, silver card and copper card. Copper card assassins are the ones who can kill middle-phase Houtian experts. Silver card assassins are the ones who can kill peak Houtian experts. And gold card assassins are the ones who can kill Xiantian experts.

    The 2 great systems Inner Net and Outer Net of the Heavenly Net have enabled the organization to become an extremely terrifying entity. The Chu kingdom, the biggest kingdom on the Qian Long continent, has no more than approximately 100 Xiantian experts altogether but the Heavenly Nets Outer Net already has over 20 gold card assassins. As for the Inner Net, no one knows how many gold card assassins there are in it. But no one doubts that the Inner Nets experts are very fearsome.

    This is the Heavenly Net, an assassin organization with more than 1000 years of uninterrupted history and more influence on the Qian Long continent than any of the 3 big dynasties has.

    Because his own name has appeared on the mission board of the Heavenly Net, Hao Tan is worried.

    Are you ready? says the silvery-masked man indifferently. Hao Tan immediately focuses his entire attention on the silver card assassin before him. His internal energy starts to circulate at a very fast speed. In an instant he is ready to deliver the most powerful strike.

    The corners of the silvery-mask mans mouth slightly curve up all of a sudden. He is smiling.


    2 afterimages of the silvery-masked mans entire body unexpectedly appear all of a sudden. One afterimage is ahead of the other. One is on the right hand side and the other is on the left. In a moment, a strong gust of air has reached Hao Tans face, causing his hair to flutter up. Hao Tan cannot help narrowing his eyes.

    What a frightening speed! Hao Tan is startled. Only by concentrating energy in his eyes can he barely see the mans shape. Unable to see anything else, Hao Tan starts to attack the shape in front of him madly. The various silhouettes of his legs spread all over the air and attack the whole body of the silvery-masked man.

    Ah! Hao Tan suddenly feels an acute pain in his right foot. He cannot help uttering a miserable shout with his eyes protruding. At the same time he hears a clack sound of bones being broken while his whole body is sent flying. It subsequently smashes fiercely onto a wall on one side of the street.

    The silvery-masked mans frosty voice rises: Your speed is still alright, but your explosiveness is too bad!

    In a mere moment, the silvery-masked man actually broke Hao Tans right ankle directly.

    Humph. With one hand Hao Tan props himself against the wall and stands up. He looks at the silvery-masked man in front of him with hatred: Your fingers are really strong. Your speed is also very fast. Too bad theyre not enough for you to kill me. Hao Tan could feel how strong the enemys fingers are. They even broke the defense of his internal energy in a grab.

    Really? The corners of the silvery-masked man curve up again. At the same time, his body becomes a blur and creates another afterimage.

    Hao Tan immediately opens his eyes wide like 2 balls. His entire bodys internal energy is completely activated. He stares at the silvery-masked man with all of his attention: It doesnt matter if my lifespan will greatly decrease, I must execute this one strike. There is a hint of ruthlessness in Hao Tans eyes. His face becomes pasty at once.

    The silvery-masked man seems to also notice Hao Tans changes but he continues to attack.

    Soul-Destroying Claw!

    Hao Tan suddenly shouts loudly. His whole face becomes savage. His 2 claws attack the silvery-masked man before him at an extremely fast speed. The speed of the claws has reached a terrifying level. There are even various black streams of energy between the 2 claws which connect them to each other.

    Both of them have excellent claw techniques but it seems Hao Tans Soul-Destroying Claw is more freakish. In terms of speed, he is inferior to the silvery-masked man. He cannot even touch his enemy, but

    Gotcha! A black stream of energy has unexpectedly tied the silvery-masked mans hands up in front of Hao Tan, who has become extremely excited: Ha-ha, I can see that youre fast. But even if you were faster, would you be as fast as my Soul-Destroying Silks? Your 2 hands have been tied up, now prepare to die. Ha-ha, huh? Why arent you using internal energy to resist?

    Hao Tan looks doubtfully at the silvery-masked man.

    You got excited to soon.

    A shaft of black light flashes by.

    How can? Hao Tans eyes pop out of his head then he falls down powerlessly with a loud thud.

    That claw technique was really fantastic. It even generated a silk-like kind of energy. The silvery-masked man takes off his silvery mask. He is an unfamiliar man. This mans body suddenly stirs repeatedly while emitting cracking sounds. The body unexpectedly becomes taller and his face also starts to change.

    After a short while, the silvery-masked man who is about 1.75 m tall has changed into 1.8 m tall Qin Yu.

    If someone saw this scene, they would surely be extremely shocked. Just now Qin Yu used the Appearance and Bone Changing art, which can be considered the peak of disguising arts. By means of controlling the muscles and bones of the whole body, the Appearance and Bone Changing art allows the user to alter his face and height.

    Generally, only Xiantian experts can manage to change their appearances thanks to Xiantian energy, which means, in the eyes of other people, the Appearance and Bone Changing art can only be used by Xiantian experts.

    However Qin Yu has been trying hard to control his entire bodys muscles and bones since he started training as a little kid. He has been training for 8 years and, moreover, has often been absorbing internal energy into his flesh and bones, therefore the flexibility and toughness of his whole bodys muscles and bones have reached a shocking level. Depending on his muscles and bones alone, Qin Yu can still change his appearance.

    Evildoers will cause their own violent deaths! When Qin Yu has taken Hao Tans head, his body shoots up into the air. There seems to be something high up on one side. It is none other than Xiao Hei. There is a small box on its body. Qin Yu puts the head into the box then sits down on Xiao Hei.

    Xiao Hei, lets go! Qin Yu warmly pats Xiao Heis neck.

    Xiao Hei immediately utters a happy cry and soars into the sky.

    Sitting on Xiao Heis back, Qin Yu looks down at the boundless ground below then looks up and feels the strong winds of the late night.

    Following the great battle that day, Qin Yu determined to practice outside through fighting. His targets were mostly some evildoers. After a period of time, Qin Yu joined the Outer Net of the Heavenly Net and became an assassin named Liu Xing! The targets of the missions he has chosen were all evildoers who had provoked the fury of both Heaven and men.

    In this way, firstly, he can eliminate some scums and, secondly, he can practice real close-quarters combat techniques as well.

    Xiao Hei, after turning in this mission, well return to Misty Villa directly. Lets go! says Qin Yu laughingly. Uttering a cry, the black eagle speeds up greatly at once and flies eastward like a beam of light.

    B2C3: Secrets (1)

    The East Vanquishing Prince mansion in Yan City today is decorated with lanterns and streamers. It is only the early morning at the moment but there is already heavy traffic on the outside of the mansion. Rich and powerful people, aristocrats and noblemen from every part of the whole Chu kingdom all exchange cordial greetings then enter the mansion carrying their gifts and invitation cards.

    Today is the ceremony of adulthood for Qin Yu, the third son of East Vanquishing Princes.

    In terms of importance, there is very little difference between a ceremony of adulthood and a wedding ceremony on the Qian Long continent. Compared to them, a birthday is not important at all. When Qin Yu celebrated his 10th birthday, some people in the princely mansion only congratulated him a bit. However, to prepare for his ceremony of adulthood, invitation cards were sent out extensively. Even the Chu emperor may attend it. 8 years ago, when the ceremony of adulthood for Qin Yus big brother Qin Feng was held, the Chu emperor Xiang Guang personally gave him his compliments.

    In the morning, the 3 brothers Qin Feng, Qin Zheng and Qin Yu come to the outside of Qin Des room together to send their father their greetings. Among the 3 brothers, the big brother Qin Feng is the tallest, about 1.9 m. His body has an air of chilliness and his face rarely has a smiling expression. Only when he is with his brothers can he smile. Qin Zheng and Qin Yu are nearly as tall as each other. Their heights are common.

    Your son pays his respects to father.

    As soon as the 3 brothers see Qin De, they kneel down and greet politely.

    Looking at the 3 sons before him, Qin De feels delighted because they are all handsome and refined. His eldest son Qin Feng chose the path of martial arts. Not only is he a general in the army, he also became a Xiantian expert last year. His name has become known very quickly. There are no more than 100 Xiantian experts in the whole Chu kingdom so to become a Xiantian expert at the age of 23 is an extremely outstanding achievement.

    His 2nd son Qin Zheng is better than even Qin De in such areas as governance, politics and so on. Today, his 2nd son is in charge of nearly all the matters of the 3 Eastern region counties, whether important or simple.

    As for his 3rd son Qin Yu Qin De casts a look at Qin Yu. Seeing Qin Yu, Qin De cannot help feeling a bit guilty in his mind.

    No matter how he practices external techniques, at best he can only reach the peak of the Houtian level. Since he cant become a Xiantian expert, his path is a dead end after all. Qin De secretly sighs. In Qin Des view, his 3rd son Qin Yu will not have much chance of success even if he worked harder.

    If he can reach Zhao Yunxings level, even though it isnt the Xiantian level, his offensive force will be as good as that of an early-phase Xiantian expert. What a pity it will take him 30 years to reach that level. Until now Yuer has been training for 8 years, so there are still 22 years to go.

    Too bad, Qin De does not know that Qin Yus flesh has been absorbing internal energy and that he has been improving fast, much faster than Zhao Yunxings estimation.

    All of you stand up first, says Qin Du with a smile. Then he looks at Qin Yu and says: Yuer, today is your ceremony of adulthood, a big day of your life. After this day youll be an adult and, whatever happens, youll have to strive to face it on your own.

    Dont worry, father. Qin Yu nods and says with a smile.

    Facing his life alone? Qin Yu has been soaring in all directions on his black eagle alone for 3 years. Thanks to the speed of the black eagle, he has roamed around nearly the entire Chu kingdom. Having experienced many things, Qin Yu has already gained his own understanding of life.

    All right, there are already many guests outside at the moment, all of you follow me to greet them. As Qin De is saying he goes out first. The 3 brothers Qin Feng, Qin Zheng and Qin Yu also go out after him.

    Today, the East Vanquishing Prince mansion is extremely noisy. Every aristocrat, nobleman, and also magnate and the like comes forward to congratulate. These people of course show absolute respect for East Vanquishing Prince in front of him. However, there are still 2 other princes with the same level of authority as East Vanquishing Prince. One is South Vanquishing Prince and the other is North Vanquishing Prince.

    South Vanquishing Prince Mu Lan of the 3 Southern region counties personally congratulates Qin Yu. North Vanquishing Prince Shangguan Hong of the 2 Northern region counties also congratulates Qin Yu personally. The 4 Western region counties are under the complete control of the Xiang royal clan. This time Emperor Xiang Guang does not come personally. Instead, he let his own younger brother Xiang Shuo congratulate Qin Yu.

    Qin Yu does not know how many tables have been set for the feast and how many guests there are in the end. But he knows one thing, that is, the gifts he received have filled 2 whole rooms, and therefore he can imagine how large the number of the guests is. After all, this is the ceremony of adulthood for a son of East Vanquishing Princes.

    After a noisy day, late at night, the princely mansion is very quiet because all of the guests have left.

    In a secret room,

    Qin Yu has never entered this secret room. It is already after midnight at the moment. There are only 5 people in the secret room: Qin De, Qin Feng, Qin Zheng, Qin Yu and Xu Yuan. Except for Qin Yu, who has a doubtful expression on his face, the other people all seem to know something.

    Qin De first goes to an armchair and sits down then he waves his hands and tells the other people: Everybody sit down first. Qin Yu and the other 3 people also sit down around the long table. Xu Yuan, who is still holding a folding fan, slightly smiles at Qin Yu.

    Father, what do you let me come here for? asks Qin Yu. At the moment his mind is still in a fog.

    Qin De calmly nods and says: Yuer, havent you always been wondering what your father is doing and what plans Im carrying out? Indeed, Ive been concealing quite a few things from you. Today you already turned 16 so Ill tell you some secrets.

    Qin Yus eyes immediately brighten.

    He knew early that his father is carrying out some plans. He has also been wondering why Qin De has never told him anything. Now, having heard his fathers words, he realizes there seems to be many things he himself does not know about. But today his father has finally decided to tell him about them.

    Yuer, do you know that in the history of the Qian Long continent there was once a dynasty which unified the whole Qian Long continent? Qin De asks Qin Yu.

    Qin Yu says with a smile: This goes without saying. A long time ago, the Qian Long continent had always been in a state of fragmentation. It was not until 3000 years ago that the whole Qian Long continent was brought into a state of unprecedented unity. It was none other than the Qin dynasty which unified the whole Qian Long continent. Qin Shi Huang Ying Zhengs famous name is still reverberating like thunder, only that the Qin dynasty was too short-lived. 100 years after its unification of the continent it fell to pieces. Then the Ying clan of the Qin dynasty was eliminated completely.

    Qin De slightly nods and says: The 1st secret Ill tell you today is ... our Qin clan is made up of Qin Shi Huangs direct descendants!

    Qin Yu only feels as if his head has been struck by a series of thunderbolts. For the moment he was dumbfounded.

    Only after a long time has Qin Yu become a bit more clear-headed. He looks at his father in disbelief then looks at his big brother, second brother and Uncle Xu Yuan. But all of these people are all looking at Qin Yu. He totally understands the implication in their eyes.

    Shouldnt Qin Shi Huangs direct descendants have the last name Ying? Even though Qin Yu is somewhat stirred, he still asks.

    Qin De shakes his head and says with a sigh: After the destruction of the Qin dynasty, people in the whole world tried to eliminate the Ying clan, how could we still dare to use the last name Ying? We changed out last name to Qin also to prevent us from forgetting that Qin Shi Huang was our ancestor. Yuer, you may know that our Qin clans heirloom internal technique wasnt called the Ancestral Dragon Art originally, but it was called the Shi Huang Ancestral Dragon Art. Yuer, remember that the blood flows in the veins of the Qin clans people is the same as Qin Shi Huangs. Qin Des eyes radiate sharp rays of light.

    B2C4: Secrets (2)

    Qin Yus mind is in turmoil uncontrollably.

    In the mind of every person on the Qian Long continent, Qin Shi Huang represents supremacy. Not only did he unify all the lands, his personal power also reached a very high level. In both controlling power and personal power, Qin Shi Huang reached his limits and no one could even remotely compare with him. Now Qin Yu has just discovered that he himself is actually a descendant of Qin Shi Huang, how can he not be shaken up?

    Yuer, as a descendant of Shi Huang, you mustnt forget the glories of the Qin dynasty. Yuer, do you know how Shi Huang died? asks Qin De while staring at Qin Yu.

    Qin Yu recalls what he has read in books and says: Qin Shi Huangs internal energy was extremely profound. It is said that he reached the Shangxian level. In theory he wouldve lived more than 1000 years but later he was killed by Xiang Yu, the West Chu Conqueror and a peerlessly powerful man. He was also the 1st emperor Xiang Yu of our Chu dynasty.

    Yes, it was Xiang Yu, the Conqueror of West Chu. Qin Des eyes radiate dazzling rays of light. The 4 Western region counties were all strongholds of the Xiang clan. It had been running them for more than 1000 years. It got rich thanks to the 4 Western region counties and started to fight for the control of all the lands. Among Shangxian-level experts at that time, Xiang Yu was known as the number one. The West Chu Conqueror Xiang Yu killed our ancestor. If Shi Huang had not died, how would our Qin dynasty have possibly been destroyed? But

    Qin De says with a cold laugh: But 1 year later, that West Chu Conqueror was also killed by the combined effort of 2 great Shangxian experts of the Qin dynasty. His jindan was destroyed and he died after falling into a river.

    Even though the Chu dynasty was founded by the West Chu Conqueror Xiang Yu, Xiang Yu himself could not enjoy the high position and great wealth of a peacetime emperor.

    As descendants of Shi Huang, the few of us must restore Shi Huangs glory. But we cant rush things. We must select a target. At that time the number one culprit in the Qin dynastys destruction was the Xiang clan. Therefore the 1st thing we must do is exterminate the Xiang clan to take control of the whole Chu kingdom. Qin Des eyes radiate terrifying rays of light.

    To exterminate the Xiang clan to take control of the entire Chu kingdom,

    At this moment, Qin Yu is trying hard to calm down. What Qin De has said to day is really too shocking to Qin Yu.

    Xiang Yu killed Qin Shi Huang and destroyed the Qin dynasty. Then top experts of the Qin dynasty joined forces and killed the West Chu Conqueror Xiang Yu. Otherwise, with Xiang Yus terrifying might and the real power of the Xiang clans great army, he would have possibly eliminated the other 2 powers and unified the entire Qian Long continent. Because of this, today the Qian Long continent is divided into 3 kingdoms.

    Qin Zheng puts a hand on Qin Yus shoulder. Qin Yu turns his head and looks at his 2nd brother. Qin Zheng says cordially while staring at Qin Yu: 3rd brother, big brother and I, and father as well, have always been trying hard for so many years because of this goal. Third brother, remember that we are descendants of Qin Shi Huang and we must restore Shi Huangs glory.

    Qin De, Qin Feng, Qin Zheng and Xu Yuan beside them all look at Qin Yu.

    Seeing the look in his fathers eyes, Qin Yu thinks for a while then finally nods.

    In 5 years, everything will be ready. At that time our Qin clan will spring into action. Well definitely eliminate the Xiang clan and unify the whole Chu kingdom in due course. At this moment, Qin Des body automatically radiates killing intent. His eyes also radiate very astonishing rays of light.

    After hearing, Qin Yu raises his eyebrows because he too knows the situation in the entire Chu kingdom.

    The Chu kingdom is mostly divided up between 4 big clans. First is the Xiang royal clan. It totally controls the 4 Western region counties and has charge of 800,000 troops. The 200,000 strong armored cavalry of the Xiang clan is very well-known.

    Second is the Qin clan of the 3 Eastern region counties, which has charge of 600,000 troops. The 50,000 strong Fierce Tiger Corps in its army is held in awe by every entity of power. However, because the Qin clan has 200,000 troops stationed at the Black Water mountain range to keep the number one bandit headquarters under threat, it actually has only 400,000 troops to deploy.

    Third is the Mu clan of the 3 Southern region counties with 500,000 troops. Fourth is the Shangguan clan of the 2 Northern region counties with 400,000 troops in total.

    This is because in the beginning the Xiang royal clan made a regulation that every county can only recruit 200,000 troops. The whole Chu kingdom is made up of 12 counties, which are divided up between the 4 big clans. However, the other 2 big clans border the Xiang clan and they both have satisfactory relations with the Xiang clan.

    Father, if we are to eliminate the Xiang clan wont the other 2 big clans hinder us? Moreover, even if they dont hinder us, if after we have eliminated the Xiang clan, they take advantage of our forces heavy losses to eliminate us, what should we do? In a short while, Qin Yu sees the problem.

    Qin De slightly smiles.

    However Qin Zheng says to Qin Yu: 3rd brother, dont worry about this matter. Of those 2 big clans, the Mu clan is very loyal to the Xiang clan. But the Shangguan clan of the 2 Northern region counties is a fence-sitter. It should be easy to draw it in. Moreover on the surface our Qin clan has 600,000 troops, but weve been around for so many years, how can we only have that many?

    Qin Yu shakes his head and says: No, 2nd brother, as the Xiang royal clan is ruling, it must have an intelligence agency to supervise the kingdom. Our Qin clan has 600,000 soldiers, if we want to recruit more troops, say, only 100,000 more, well have to prepare an awful lot of food, armor, weapons, and so on for them, and it will really be too hard for us to hide this from the investigation of the Xiang clans intelligence agency. Also, the Mu clan is loyal to the Xiang clan, so theyll have 7 counties together. That Shangguan clan is a fence-sitter, but it definitely wont depend on us. After all, our power is still inferior to the Xiang clans.

    Qin Yu is somewhat unconvinced by his own familys plan to unify the Chu kingdom.

    Moreover, the Black Water mountain range is the number 1 bandit headquarters. On the surface those bandits claim there are 200,000 of them but no outsider knows how many bandits they actually have. 200,000 troops of our forces must be deployed to deter them. Otherwise, the 3 Eastern region counties will be in chaos once so many bandits rush every place of the region like locusts. Therefore, well be able to use only 400,000 troops. Even if we have 100,000 troops in secret, therell be merely 500,000 troops in total. How are we going to fight the Xiang clan? Our Fierce Tiger Corps is formidable, but the 50,000 Fierce Tiger soldiers are equivalent to 230,000 troops at best. The 200,000 armored cavalrymen of the Xiang clan are really no pushover, says Qin Yu again.

    In a short while, he has found many problems.

    Moreover, if there is a civil war in the Chu kingdom, the Han and the Ming dynasties definitely wont cause any trouble? If these 2 big dynasties come on the scene, therell be real chaos, says Qin Yu again. Having said this, it is obvious he cannot imagine how his own clan will unify the entire Chu kingdom.

    Qin De, Qin Zheng and Qin Feng all looks at Qin Yu with a smile.

    Not bad, Yuer, I couldnt have imagined that you had a pretty good view of the overall situation and would think about so many matters in such a short time. But war is not as simple as you think at all. Its definitely not just to compare who has more power. Such matters as army provisions, military operations and so on are all very complicated. Moreover, the 4 big clans of the Chu kingdom are not what they look like. Dont worry, our Qin clan has been preparing for several hundred years. Various plans specified early on what to do. Wait till 5 years later, youll see how well destroy the Xiang clan, says Qin De resolutely.

    But Qin Yu looks at his father doubtfully.

    He cannot understand how his father can be so confident when of the 4 big clans, the Mu clan and the Xiang clan are on the same side, and the Shangguan clan will definitely not rely on the Qin clan. So what if they have been preparing for several hundred years? Could it be several hundred years of preparation would turn 600,000 troops into 800,000 troops? Moreover, the troops stationed at the Black Water mountain range cannot be mobilized. Otherwise, the 3 Eastern region counties will be plunged into chaos, which will really be terrible. After all, this region is the base of the Qin clan.

    Dont worry, your father has taken everything into consideration, says Qin De with a smile.

    Qin Yu does not know what his father is thinking, but in his view, it will be very difficult for the Qin clan to unify the entire Chu kingdom. After all, the Han and Ming dynasties both are not incompetent. However, seeing the look in his fathers eyes puts Qin Yus mind at ease a lot.

    B2C5: Meteoric Tear (1)

    The Qin clans people have been subjects of the Chu kingdom for several hundred years without putting their plans into action. Why, after several hundred years, have they decided to spring into action?

    Wondering about this point, Qin Yu looks at Qin De and asks doubtfully: Father, our Qin clan hasnt done anything for the last several hundred years. Why must we spring into action 5 years later? Could it be well really need several hundred years of preparation to destroy the Xiang clan? If were going to fight, why dont we take action early? Qin Yu is naturally not convinced that this is right.

    Yuer. Qin Des face suddenly looks a bit upset. Now that you asked, Ill tell you another secret.

    At this moment, big brother Qin Feng looks even colder. There is also no smiling expression on the face of second brother Qin Zheng while Xu Yuan stops waving his fan. Qin Yu also feels that the whole atmosphere in the secret room has changed. He knows the matter his father is about to mention is unusually important.

    Qin Des look seems to be able to go through space-time. He says in an indistinct voice: Yuer, 14 years ago, when your big brother turned 10, your mother died. On that day, a very large fire broke out. In the past I told you that your mother died in the fire. But the truth is your mother was murdered!!! The muscles on Qin Des face all start to tremble. There are only sorrow and hatred in his eyes.

    Bang! Qin Yu feels as if there is a series of explosions in his head. His face suddenly turns very pale.

    Mother was murdered? For the moment, Qin Yus mind is in complete chaos. He lost his mother when he was 2. 2 years old, at that time he was still very little and simply could not remember his mothers appearance.

    Thinking about mother,

    The first thing emerges in Qin Yus mind is that picture. Not long after he was born, when he was just one-month old, a painter was asked to draw that picture. In the picture, there is a young married woman holding a baby. The young married woman is smiling at the baby in her bosom. Her loving eyes are emitting a motherly radiance.

    When Qin Yu was very little, there were countless times when he stood foolishly viewing the picture and said to himself: This is my mother, while his mind tried hard to remember his mothers appearance. There were many times when his mothers appearance lingered on in his dreams. Whenever Qin Yu saw other children with their mothers in Yan City, he wished his mother had been living. How he wished his mother had been alive as well! When he was very little, he wept to his father time after time, asking for his mother.

    As he gradually grew, Qin Yu did not weep asking for his mother anymore. Every time little Qin Yu thought about his mother, he watched the stars, because Grandpa Lian had said deceased people would go up into the sky and become stars. This is also one of the reasons why Qin Yu likes to watch the stars.

    Now that little Qin Yu has become an adult. But at this moment, he is unexpectedly told that his mother did not die because of the fire and, moreover, she was murdered.

    Who killed my mother?! Qin Yu stares at Qin De and shouts. His eyes have reddened.

    His only mother -- That pulsating emotion at the bottom of his soul -- The picture of mother in Qin Yus mind suddenly shatters into pieces like glass. A stream of wrath erupts from the depths of his soul and reaches his chest in an instant. This is hatred. This is absolute wrath!

    Who? In the end who murdered my mother?! The muscles of Qin Yus hands all start to tremble. His whole body has started to boil!

    Qin Fengs and Qin Zhengs eyes also radiate hatred.

    Could it be As if a ray of light suddenly flashes through Qin Yus mind, he immediately suspects one possibility. He stares at his father: Father, could it be mothers murderer is Xiang clans? Yes, it mustve been so.

    Yes, its Xiang clans. Moreover, the murderer is the current Chu emperor Xiang Guang. Its he who murdered your mother. Also, your big brother witnessed this incident with his own eyes, says Qin De in an ice-cold voice. For the moment, there is a complete silence in the secret room.

    Xiang Guang, he thought that after driving Jing Yi to death then faking a fire what he did will be shrouded in absolute secrecy. He thought he had put me off the scent and I would never discover what happened. But he didnt know Fenger, 10 year old at that time, was in Jing Yis room. Qin Des killing intent surges up.

    At that time, if it hadnt been for Uncle Feng, I wouldve died and no one wouldve known the truth about mothers death, says Qin Feng coldly.

    Everything has come to light.

    Everything has been made clear.

    Even though the Qin clans people are Qin Shi Huangs descendants, for the last several hundred years, they have had complete control over the 3 Eastern region counties and have been enjoying life without worrying about things. Quite a few ancestors of the Qin clan advocated for a peaceful life. After all, it would be too difficult for them to usurp the Chu dynasty and the Qin clan would possibly be finished instead. For the last several hundred years, the Qin clan has always been unable to make up its mind to give up its current lifestyle and overthrow the Chu dynasty. However, the death of the wife of the current clan head Qin De caused him to make up his mind. Therefore, 14 years ago, Qin De started to arrange a seizure of power, and he even set in motion some plans prepared several hundred years before.

    Father, I want to join the army. Ill definitely avenge mothers death! Qin Yu says resolutely while looking at Qin De. There are only 2 ways for him to seek revenge. First is to use assassination. Second is to use the army to destroy the Xiang clan directly then it will be easy to kill Xiang Guang.

    Assassinate Xiang Guang?

    Qin Yu thought about it for a while then gave up. As the Chu emperor, Xiang Guang is protected closely by countless experts. Even a Xiantian expert will have absolutely no chance of killing him. Needless to say, Qin Yu practices external techniques. Therefore, he has no choice but to join Qin Des plan.

    Nonsense! Qin De stares at Qin Yu and reproves him. Youre just a boy. You havent learned the art of war or the art of ruling. How will you lead the army?

    Then Ill be a vanguard soldier. Ill be a small soldier, replies Qin Yu immediately. He understands he knows nothing about leading soldiers in combat but he cannot bear the thought of standing idly by on one side. After all, this is a blood feud over the murder of his mother.

    A vanguard soldier? A small soldier? Qin De shakes his head and says: If we are to destroy the Xiang clan in a war, the soldiers will have to be mobilized by the hundred thousand. On the battlefield, after the soldiers are lined up, you basically wont even see the ends of a row. With so many people fighting together closely, what will be the use of you? As long as youre not a Xiantian expert, you wont be able to save your own little life in the middle of a large army!

    Qin Yu is speechless.

    But He wants to dispute.

    Qin De walks to his side, strokes his shoulder and says sincerely: Yuer, you must understand, youre a son of the Qin clan. The blood of our Qin clan absolutely doesnt tolerate mistakes. Your big brother is a general and has also reached the Xiantian level, so Im certainly not worried about him. Your 2nd brother will stay far back from the front line to handle political affairs so Im not worried about him either. You want to become a vanguard soldier, if you were to die, how would I explain it to the ancestors? How would I explain it to your deceased mother?

    Yuer, dont be stubborn. If you joined the army, you would only make me more worried about you. Yuer, youve become an adult, you must learn to consider the big picture, says Qin De while staring at Qin Yu.

    Qin Yu thinks for a while.

    He understands he himself cannot help in handling political affairs. If he became a normal vanguard soldier, his father would be negatively affected when marshaling forces because he would not be able to ignore his own son in a certain troop.

    Moreover, the offensive power of an individual like him would be negligible in the middle of a large army.

    Qin Yu has made a judgment in his mind. If he joined the usurpation plan, he would be of no use. Worse still, he would have negative effects on it.

    Father, I already understand. I wont become a hindrance to all of you, says Qin Yu with a nod. Then he turns around and leaves immediately. Seeing Qin Yu leaving, Qin De cannot help feeling unhappy. Qin Feng, Qin Zheng and Xu Yuan all stand up and follow his back with their eyes.

    When Qin Yu reaches the door, he suddenly stops, turns around, looks at the other people and says: Father, big brother, second brother, Uncle Xu, please avenge my mothers death.

    Third brother, dont worry, well definitely eliminate the Xiang clan, says 2nd brother Qin Zheng resolutely. Qin Feng also nods solemnly to Qin Yu. Xu Yuan and Qin De also look at Qin Yu to let him totally understand their intentions.

    Thank you! As Qin Yu finishes saying, he goes out of the secret room directly without looking back and gets in the corridor. It is already late at night. The sky is filled with countless visible stars. The cold winds of the late night are blowing, causing Qin Yus whole body to slightly tremble uncontrollably.

    Qin Yu suddenly turns around and looks at that room beside the corridor. The secret room is under the ground of that room. Perhaps father and the others are discussing some important plans but I cant offer them any help. Qin Yu smiles bitterly then turns around and leaves immediately.

    B2C6: Meteoric Tear (2)

    In the morning of the next day, Qin Yu leaves the princely mansion alone and returns to Misty Villa. Only Xiao Hei goes with him.

    After getting back to Misty Villa, Qin Yu trains even harder. In his plan, even the time for him to go out to execute assassination missions is sharply reduced. Most of his time is spent on improving his power nonstop. When Qin De hears about this he can only smile bitterly. He does not know what to say.

    Late at night a half month later,

    Qin Yu walks out from his room and stand in the middle of the courtyard. Making a swaying movement with his body, he gets to the top of the room in a flash. Sitting on the top of the room, Qin Yu watches the boundless sky in silence. Xiao Hei also stays quietly beside him.

    Misty Villa is located on the side of the mountain. On the top of the room, Qin Yu can even see a cliff not far from there. One cold wind after another reaches him from the depths next to the cliff but Qin Yu feels nothing.

    Xiao Hei, I feel that Im too useless, extremely useless. Qin Yu looks at Xiao Hei beside him and says in a low voice.

    With its shiny black eyes fixed on Qin Yu, Xiao Hei spreads its huge wings and puts them around Qin Yu as if it is consoling him.

    Looking into the sky, Qin Yu says in a voice which is a bit indistinct and a bit bitter: When I was little, I thought father didnt care about me, so I trained very hard only for him to spend more time with me. When I grew up, I discovered father truly cared about me. But he has his own business and doesnt have time to stay with me. To destroy the Xiang clan to avenge mothers death is indeed very difficult. Father, big brother and 2nd brother have always been trying hard, but I

    But Im absolutely useless. Im not proficient in political affairs. And I cant command troops either. My body doesnt have any internal energy so Ill be of no use in the middle of a large army. Qin Yu cannot help clenching his fists. Actually I want to help father as well. Actually, I also want to make myself a bit useful to them. Any bit will do.

    He hates the fact that he cannot power up at once.

    He hates himself, hates himself for being useless.

    Qin Yu is an adult now but since childhood, he has always felt lonesome. Even though he can feel that his father cares about him, in 10 whole years between age 6 and 16, the time he and his father met does not amount to more than 1 month.

    He does not hate his father. He only hates himself for being useless.

    Now that he already knows what his father is doing, he wants to do something. He also wants to help his father, but he really cannot help in anything.

    In fathers eyes, perhaps Im a burden. The Xiantian level, when will I reach it? At the moment my power is improving very fast but to reach the peak of external practice itll take me at least 5 or 6 more years, sighs Qin Yu.

    After a long time, he suddenly stands up and lets out a deep sigh. His eyes glitter with resolution.

    Big brother, 2nd brother, father, all of you are trying hard nonstop to prepare for the war 5 years later. Therefore in the next 5 years Ill train hard as well. At least in 5 years Ill reach the level of Master Zhao Yunxing, reach the peak of the Houtian level. Qin Yu sets himself a goal.

    Merit, anyone living in the world should have merit. At least, they must be of some merit in the eyes of their parents, otherwise their life will be a waste. Qin Yu does not like to depend on his fathers status like a profligate son of a rich family. He wants to achieve something worthwhile. At the minimum being able to help his father will be enough.

    The Qian Long continent is extremely large. However, the ocean beyond the boundary of the Qian Long continent is ten to hundred times as large as it is. Suddenly --

    The boundless ocean heaves up and down violently. There is not a hurricane at the moment so how can it be heaving up and down without a reason like this? At the same time, the holy energy in the whole world starts to shake in an instant. The ocean waves surge to 100 zhang high then smash down with a loud noise. All of the martial art practitioners in the world can feel that the worlds holy energy has become so chaotic that for the moment they simply cannot absorb any of it.


    In the sky, an exceptionally bright meteor suddenly appears out of thin air and flashes toward the Qian Long continent in an oblique straight line at an extremely fast speed. It is even making sharp buzzing sounds. In a short while, the meteor has disappeared. Then the holy energy in the world reverts to its stable state. The boundless ocean also goes back to normal.

    Meteor! Qin Yu sees a meteor coming through the sky at an extremely fast speed in the distance. He immediately watches it carefully from the top of the room. That meteor unexpectedly comes directly toward Qin Yu. With his eyes brightening, he says laughingly: Impossible. This meteor cant be flying directly to Misty Villa.

    Qin Yu, however, knows that some meteoric metals have mostly been created by the meteors which have landed on the ground.

    Maybe I can still find a big chunk of meteoric metals. Qin Yu thinks to himself. But Qin Yu is somewhat disappointed because when that meteor is halfway down in the air and when there is still a very long distance between it and him it disappears.

    Forget about it. But I was pretty lucky to be able to see a meteor. Qin Yu slightly smiles. Then he takes a leap to get down from the top of the room. But when he is leaping, his eyes suddenly brighten.

    What is that? Qin Yu vaguely sees a light shining faintly in the west garden. He cannot help feeling doubtful. He immediately goes to the west garden. After entering the west garden, he searches carefully in all directions but he does not find anything unusual.

    He takes several steps on the side of the hot spring. Suddenly he notices a gleaming light on the ground.

    Whats that? Qin Yu vaguely sees a crystalline object on the ground. He squats down and looks carefully. It is a red crystal which looks like a pendant gem. After picking it up and putting on his hand, he sees that this crystal has the shape of a tear.

    A blood-red crystal in the shape of a tear, it should be a piece of glass. Qin Yu looks at the crystal in his palm. His mind unconsciously takes a liking to this piece of glass.

    Lets embed this piece of glass in something to dress it up. A necklace will be pretty good. Xiao Lu will definitely like it very much. Hmm, if so what should it be called? Qin Yu frowns and thinks. Then his eyes brighten: Ah, I got it after watching a meteor and it has a tear shape so lets call it the Meteoric Tear.

    The Meteoric Tear, Qin Yu is very satisfied with this name.

    Qin Yu even tries it a bit on his chest then he nods in satisfaction. But suddenly Qin Yus hand feels a bit lighter. The piece of glass he found just now has unexpectedly disappeared strangely. It was right in the palm of Qin Yus hand, yet it has just disappeared like that.

    Qin Yus eyes cannot help popping out of his head.

    What the hell has happened? Qin Yu is shocked. He has never seen such an odd occurrence.

    An object in his hand has disappeared without a reason as if it has never existed. But he is absolutely certain that just now he found a blood-red crystal in the shape of a tear and he even named it the Meteoric Tear.

    How come I cant see it? Could it be some Xiantian expert or Shangxian took it directly using telekinesis? Qin Yu ponders. No, it couldnt. I was grasping it in the palm of my hand. Even if someone had used telekinesis, I wouldve felt that piece of glass moving in my hand. Could it be it just disappeared without a reason?

    Qin Yu cannot imagine what kind of magic power can move an object away in such an inexplicable manner.

    Not even Shangxian have this kind of magic power for certain. Moreover, why would such a super expert play tricks on me in the middle of the night? He is filled with bewilderment.

    In the west garden, bewildered Qin Yu thus ponders for a long time. Then, after finding absolutely no reason, he has no choice but to leave the west garden in bewilderment.

    B2C7: Leaping through the sky (1)

    Ive never felt so good, so fresh and cool. Qin Yu stretches his sluggish waist and takes a fresh and clean breath. Suddenly his eyes flash with fierceness. Alright, lets start to try hard. In 5 years Ill definitely reach the peak of the Houtian level.

    His heart is full of enthusiasm. He immediately starts his morning training session.

    Qin Yu has always been carrying 300 jin of weights on his body. He thus runs out of Misty Villa and heads directly for the foot of the mountain. From the foot of the mountain, he runs up to its peak. Then he runs from the peak down to the foot of the mountain again. He keeps running back and forth like that.

    As usual, Qin Yu wants to run nonstop until he has no strength left to run. Only then will he stop.

    Phew! Qin Yu is constantly gasping for breath. One after another, beads of sweat are falling down from his chin. At this moment he has reached his limit. Because he runs like this every day, he already knew his limits early. But who could have thought today he would unexpectedly run 1 more lap than yesterday? Moreover he is not completely exhausted yet.

    Even though at this moment he is extremely tired, he feels very excited: My condition today is really not bad. If I can improve like this every day, I soon wont be far from reaching the level where I can lift 800 jin with 1 arm and deflect weapons with my body. It seems Heaven is helping me. Qin Yu cannot help giving a faint smile.

    Qin Yu can feel clearly the reactions of his entire bodys muscles. He also knows at this moment he has reached his physical limit the first time.

    Suddenly --

    An extremely comfortable clear stream of energy starts to flow to every place in his entire body. Qin Yu feels that his entire bodys muscles, which have reached their limits, vying with each other to absorb this clear stream as if they are a thirsty traveller in the desert who can drink water all of a sudden

    Qin Yu is completely dumbfounded. He can feel clearly that his body, which has reached its physical limit, and his muscles, which are tired and aching, are suddenly recovering quickly. He can feel his whole bodys muscles regaining strength and they are even being enhanced to some extent.

    Whats going on? Qin Yu suddenly stops. Where does this clear stream of mysterious power come from? What is really going on?

    This is too strange. Qin Yu has been training for 8 years but he has never experienced anything like this. Every time he reached his physical limit, he had to try hard to overcome them. But today, who could have thought a mysterious stream of energy would suddenly appear? Qin Yu basically did not feel its existence in his channels, as if it disregarded the channels. Instead, it directly spread throughout his body. When his muscles absorbed this clear stream, they also became stronger.

    Qin Yu frowns deeply while pondering about the sudden appearance of this clear stream. But after thinking for a long time, he still does not know how this could happen.

    Lets continue to train. Lets see what will happen when I reach my physical limit again. Qin Yu immediately continues to run. This time he even runs a longer distance than he did last time. In todays morning training session, Qin Yu has run a longer aggregate distance than he ever did in any previous session.

    Ive finally reached it! Qin Yu feels that he has reached his physical limit again. Even though his legs are still running very fast, his mind and energy are mostly concentrated on the inside of his body.

    A stream of energy starts to be generated

    Its the chest. Qin Yus eyes brighten. The source of that mysterious energy is in the chest. Qin Yu feels clearly how comfortable it is when this stream of energy spreads throughout his body. This feeling is more comfortable than how he feels while soaking in the hot spring, and much more comfortable than how he feels while massaged by Old Dr. Weng Xian.

    Qin Yu suddenly pulls open the black gold undershirt, which covers his chest. He stares at his chest --

    There is a faint mark on the chest. If he had not looked carefully, he would not have noticed this mark. It has the shape of none other than the Meteoric Tear. But there were never any marks on Qin Yus chest. He remembers very well he did not see it while soaking in the hot spring yesterday, but now it is here.

    The Meteoric Tear, yesterday evenings Meteoric Tear!

    Qin Yus eyes pop out of his head. He is so astonished that he is basically speechless. The sudden disappearance of the Meteoric Tear yesterday shocked him and made him doubtful for a long time. But now, with the appearance of the Meteoric-Tear-shaped mark on his chest, Qin Yu cannot help thinking about one matter.

    Could the clear stream of mysterious power appeared just now have something to do with this mark? Is this mark related to the mysterious Meteoric Tear yesterday? Qin Yu simply has no way to know everything about what is going on.

    But he is not a country bumpkin. As East Vanquishing Princes son, he knows that some rare treasures in the world can fuse with the body. Objects which are superior to both mundane-grade and Xian-grade weapons and are equal to Shangxians weapons can fuse with the body.

    But Qin Yu has never heard of a crystal which can fuse with the body. However, as soon as he thinks about what happened just now, he knows

    He has struck it rich!

    Limit training

    is to break through the bodys limits time after time. But every time a limit is broken through, the bodys flesh and bones are put under a great deal of stress and will require various recovery methods later. In the past, Qin Yu would try to persist until he surpassed his limits, and when it was impossible for him to go on, he would have to use various recovery methods such as soaking in the hot spring, applying medicinal wine and so on.

    However, now that he has the fantastic clear stream of energy, Qin Yu will not have to waste time on recovery. He can transcend his limits nonstop. Moreover, when that clear stream fuses with his flesh, it seems to also enhance his fleshs capabilities.

    Heaven is helping me. Heaven is helping me! Qin Yu clenches his fists. His eyes radiate a shocking fierceness. Even Heaven is helping me. At first I thought itd take me 5 or 6 years to reach Master Zhao Yunxings level, but with this Meteoric Tear, perhaps 2 years will be enough!

    Qin Yus eyes glitter with excitement.

    From his childhood to his adulthood, in his fathers eyes, he has always been inferior to his big brother and 2nd brother. Not only can big brother lead troops in battle, he is also a Xiantian expert. And 2nd brother is proficient in governance. Only he, the 3rd brother, born with a dantian which cannot accumulate internal energy, is the most useless.

    However the Meteoric Tear has given him an opportunity.

    An opportunity to change his life,

    Father, Im not useless. I dont want to hide and live shamefully behind your backs. Ill let you know that Im as good as big brother and 2nd brother. The most resounding sounds rise in his mind. At this moment, his great ambition soars as high as the sky.

    Alright, lets start training!

    Qin Yu starts his training immediately.

    He trains like crazy, much crazier than in the past. Even if Zhao Yunxing came here personally, he would be scared stiff upon seeing how Qin Yu is training. The reason is that Qin Yus current training does not take into account his bodys endurance. He is totally torturing himself!

    However, other people simply cannot know that every time Qin Yu reaches a physical limit, that mysterious clear stream will permeate through his muscles and relieve their fatigue. And whenever he transcends a limit, the muscles become stronger. As Qin Yu can continuously surpass his limits, he is improving extremely fast, like a shooting star leaping through the sky.

    In the evening, Qin Yu returns to Misty Villa. His face is full of confidence. He has been going through a day of mad training, with the training load being over 10 times as heavy as in the past, however at this moment his entire bodys muscles are unexpectedly still full of vitality.

    B2C8: Leaping through the sky (2)

    That night, Qin Yu sits with legs crossed in his room.

    Every night he executes the Ancestral Dragon Arts technique to turn the worlds holy energy into internal energy then, as it automatically disperses, lets his entire bodys muscles absorb some of this internal energy. Tonight is the same. Qin Yu executes the Ancestral Dragon Art again.

    If there were an observer, he would see

    Various endless streams of the worlds holy energy start to whirl around Qin Yu at a very fast speed. Their number is shockingly large. Because there are too many of them, these holy energy streams unexpectedly form a blue mist. It looks as if Qin Yus entire body is wrapped in a hazy layer of blue mist. His body is only a blur through the blue mist.

    Materialization of holy energy!

    The materialization of holy energy according to legend!

    If an internal expert or a Xiantian expert saw this, they would be scared stiff. Holy energy absorption speed naturally represents a persons power improvement speed. And when the materialization of holy energy is achieved, the practice speed of that person will reach a terrifying level.

    According to legend, Shangxians holy energy absorption is at a level where the holy energy is materialized. And even Xiantian experts are definitely below this level.

    At the moment, however, the materialization of holy energy is happening on the body of a young man who is only 16 and practices external techniques.

    At this moment Qin Yus face is very red. His body is slightly trembling, as if he has received a very great provocation. Beads of sweat have even stuck out on his forehead. The expression on his face shows that he is both in pain and shocked. However, the surging holy energy is still entering Qin Yus body nonstop.

    Why is this happening? So much holy energy. Qin Yu is so shocked that he is speechless.

    When he executed the Ancestral Dragon Art, the holy energy in his vicinity was very obedient and let itself be absorbed by him at a very fast speed. But because it was too obedient and too easy to maneuver Qin Yu has unexpectedly absorbed an amount of holy energy over 10 times as much as usual in a short while.

    Could that Meteoric Tear be the reason? Qin Yu automatically thinks about this. But he immediately smiles bitterly: My goodness, youre killing me!

    At this moment, the surging holy energy in his body starts to roll into his channels. If a footpath which can only accommodate 3 people walking abreast is suddenly walked on by people 10 abreast and, moreover, the number of people taking this footpath increases nonstop, it is easy to imagine how overcrowded it will become.

    At this moment, the channels in Qin Yus body are exceptionally overcrowded. The amount of holy energy which far exceeds those of the past is totally clogging his channels.

    Absorbing too much holy energy isnt a good thing. What should I do now? Qin Yu can feel continual tearing pains in his channels. He makes every effort to circulate the holy energy in the channels. But because there is too much holy energy, even starting to keep it under control is hard for him.

    This is like how while an instructor can still easily control the movements of 100 people he will not be able to direct the movements of 1000 people by himself.

    So painful, will I die because of the channels breaking into pieces? Qin Yu smiles bitterly in his mind. At first I thought this mysterious Meteoric Tear was a treasure. Now it seems to be a disaster for me instead. So much holy energy is already enough to squeeze into my channels until they break.

    Qin Yu can feel that every place of the channels in his entire body is in continuous pain.

    Qin Yus channels have adapted themselves to those smaller amounts of holy energy of the past, but todays amount has increased to 10 times the normal amounts, so how can they endure it? His channels have been overfilled. Moreover, they seem to be about to break apart because of that. Qin Yu can only see everything happening without being able to do anything.

    Fizz, fizz ~~~

    A place of his channels finally can no longer endure the pressure of the squeezing and starts to tear.

    No good! Qin Yus face immediately goes very pale.

    Fizz, fizz~~~ In a short while, the channels in his entire body continuously tear in every place.

    Father, I thought I was still of some use and would be able to help you. But now it looks like Im completely useless as before. Qin Yu is disappointed. However, despite facing death, he has absolutely neither fear nor sorrow.

    Maybe father will grieve for me after I die? For some odd reason, Qin Yu unexpectedly thinks about this.

    However, while he is having a bee in his bonnet, the Meteoric Tear in his chest sends out various clear streams of energy which immediately flow throughout Qin Yus body. These mysterious clear streams have some unknown power which unexpectedly lets those tattered channels easily take shape again.

    Moreover, the newly formed channels are considerably wider than the previous ones.

    Ah. Qin Yu is astonished. He watches this scene in stupefaction.

    It seems the Meteoric Tear is not as simple as he thinks at all.

    However, because the current amount of holy energy is 10 times, or even over 10 times, larger than the normal amounts, the newly formed channels are still too narrow for it. In a short while, following the increasingly slower circulation of energy, the blockage in the channels becomes more and more serious, and the channels even tear again.

    This time Qin Yu does not despair. He attentively waits for those mysterious clear streams from the Meteoric Tear.

    As expected, the Meteoric Tear does not disappoint Qin Yu. Once again, a clear stream comes out from the Meteoric Tear with no difficulty and he can feel clearly that wherever it goes to the channels there recover quickly. After a short while, all of the channels have been formed again. This time they are even wider than before.

    Tearing -- Mending!

    Even though there is too much holy energy, after experiencing the Tearing -- Mending process continuously, the channels have finally become able to withstand it. Qin Yu finally succeeds. However, the pain of having his channels tearing again and again was much more terrifying than the pain of practicing external techniques.

    Various vigorous streams of internal energy swarm into his dantian then move outward in all directions. Like dry sandy soil, the flesh in Qin Yus entire body draws internal energy off nonstop. The more internal energy his flesh and bones absorb, the more formidable they become.

    However, as time goes by, the flesh and bones absorb less and less internal energy.

    After 4 hours, Qin Yu opens his eyes.

    Sure enough, just as I anticipated, when the training load increases, the flesh and bones become stronger and also absorb more internal energy. A day ago my training load increased to over 10 times the normal load, now Ive only been absorbing for 4 hours, but the amount of internal energy absorbed was already about 10 times larger than in the past. Qin Yus face is full of sweat.

    The pain of the channels tearing just now has caused his entire body to be drenched in sweat.

    After my flesh and bones absorbed so much internal energy, now I feel Qin Yu kicks fast and fiercely with his legs, causing whizzing wind sounds. He also punches continuously with his fists, splitting the air before him. Now I feel my entire body is full of power!

    Qin Yus eyes glitter with extreme excitement.

    After going through this one day of training, he can totally notice that his own improvement speed is extremely fast.

    2 years, will I need that much? There is a hint of a confident smile on the corners of his mouth. It is pointless to guess how long it will take to reach the peak of the Houtian level. He can only undergo real training and wait for the facts to speak for themselves.

    Time goes by.

    Qin Yu starts to train like crazy. He throws caution regarding daily training load to the winds and completely attacks the endurance limit of the human nerve. Even if Xiantian experts came to see how he trains, they would be horrified to death by this madman. This kind of training is suicide.

    With 300 jin of weights on his body, he holds high 2 huge rocks which weigh several hundred jin each using his hands. He thus runs at his fastest speed for 1 hour. Afterwards, he throws the rocks away and swims in the lake while carrying 300 jin of weights more than 100 round-trips. Then he repeats these forms of training

    This is totally beyond the human imagination. There is simply no way to explain it. Is this really what a person can endure?

    However, Qin Yu is happy and lively. His bodys toughness, flexibility and agility improve day by day. His eyes also become increasingly swifter and fiercer.

    Qin Yu always tests his arms strength while carrying 300 jin of weights. From lifting 300 jin with one arm, the weight he can lift with one arm continuously increases to 400 jin, 450 jin, 500 jin, 550 jin, 600 jin 700 jin However, even though his arms strength improves, there does not seem to be an upper limit on Qin Yus one-armed strength.

    A peak-Houtian expert has 700 to 800 jin of strength in one arm?

    To sum up, in just a year Qin Yus one-armed strength has surpassed this so-called peak of one-armed strength. His strength, agility and even his bodys attack resistance have all been continuously challenging the presumptive peaks of external practice on the Qian Long continent. Qin Yu is still improving very fast without showing any sign of deceleration. Moreover he does not feel any bit of Xiantian energy at all, which means he is still a Houtian expert.

    No one knows how great Qin Yus attributes will be at the peak of the Houtian level. In conclusion, the current Qin Yus achievements cannot be predicted using common sense. A miracle of external practice is being initiated by him

    B2C9: Rock within rock (1)

    Mount Dong Lan is 3000 m high. Such a high mountain is naturally thickly wooded. There are even wild beasts hiding in the depths of the forests on the mountain.

    However, at the moment, in a very remote wood on Mount Dong Lan, a silhouette of a man is moving back and forth extremely fast. He is agile like a panther and skillful like a monkey. In an instant he even leaps up several tens meters onto a tree fork then easily leaps from this tree fork to another.

    The most extraordinary thing is that while this man is moving extremely fast he does not cause any wind sounds at all.

    The silhouette suddenly dives down from several tens meters high like lightning. With a ferocious splash he gets into the small lake in the depths of the wood. The lake, which is clear and beautiful as if made from jade, immediately ripples. This nameless small lake is very clear and it is even possible to see clearly the cobblestones at the bottom of it.

    It feels really good. Qin Yu suddenly emerges from the bottom of the water. He spontaneously shakes his head, scattering water sprays around.

    Qin Yu has had the Meteoric Tear for one and a half years. A half year ago, his strength reached the level of Man Dong, a man born with great physical strength. His agility is even more peerless. And because normal weapons can no longer hurt him a bit, it is obvious how great his flexibility and toughness are.

    Even though Qin Yu is not wearing gloves, his fingers can still grab blue stones into pieces with ease. Moreover, his finger skin has not been hardened in the slightest. This is totally out of line with Zhao Yunxings theory. How can a persons fingers remain sensitive and become extremely tough at the same time?

    In theory, because Qin Yu has reached Zhao Yunxings level or has even surpassed it, he should have reached the so-called peak of the Houtian level.

    However Qin Yus various bodily capabilities are still improving at an extremely shocking speed. Feeling that his progress was too terrifying, he went directly into the depths of the forests to train lest the people at the villa chatter about him.

    In the depths of the forests, huge rocks are seen everywhere. Moreover, training here is even more beneficial to his Seven North Stars Moonlight Dance body-maneuvering skill. After all, there are basically no roads in the depths of the forests, only a great variety of obstacles. This kind of conditions is very useful for practicing body-maneuvering skill.

    In only 1 and a half years my one-armed strength has reached 1000 jin. If I talk about this Qin Yu gives a faint smile.

    The lifting strength of an arm and the impact force of a punch are totally different concepts. It is much more difficult to lift than to punch with one arm. If an arm can lift 1000 jin, the impact force it generates when throwing a punch will definitely exceed the weight of 10,000 jin. Even Man Dong, who is known by reputation as the strongest external expert, would be dumbfounded by such a terrifying force.

    For the last half year Ive almost never taken off these 300 jin of weights. How fast will I be after taking off these weights? Qin Yu thinks to himself. If other people heard about this, they would have no way to believe it.

    Just now in the wood, Qin Yu was moving back and forth extremely fast. His speed was even faster than those of ordinary external experts. However, this was merely his speed while carrying 300 jin of weights.

    Bang! Following several loud noises, the black iron arm guards and leg guards and the black gold undershirt have already been shed to one side.

    Ha-ha, lets try it now. Qin Yu suddenly shoots into the sky like an arrow leaving a bow. He leaps out of the water directly then makes a swinging movement with his body in a relaxed manner in midair. Unexpectedly he comes to rest! Yes, he comes to rest, albeit for only about 2 or 3 seconds.

    This is the subtlety of how Qin Yus body-maneuvering skill makes use of wind forces.

    Whizz! With a shaking movement of his body, Qin Yu dives down extremely fast and lands on the ground. Bang! Following a push with his feet, his entire body disappears with a shua noise. Then the large trees in the surroundings start to shake continuously. A vague noise is shuffling back and forth in the wood like lightning.


    Qin Yu suddenly appears beside the lake. His face looks extremely excited: After taking off 300 jin of weights, my speed has increased by more than 1 level. Really extremely fast, but Qin Yu frowns. Only that at such a fast speed, wind resistance becomes too terrifying. Even with my current level of the Seven North Stars Moonlight Dance, I still cant neutralize the resistance completely.

    The faster the speed is, the stronger wind resistance becomes. Qin Yus speed just now reached an unprecedented level. He could neutralize wind resistance with ease in the past, but with such a fast speed, he has no way to nullify wind resistance perfectly.

    Well, looks like Im not strong enough. I must keep trying hard. I even want to see what my limit is in the end. Qin Yus eyes are blazing with excitement and passion.


    Qin Yu continues to train hard in the depths of the forests on Mount Dong Lan.

    Late at night, in Hua Yang House of the imperial palace in the Chu dynastys capital,

    Hua Yang House is where Imperial Concubine Yu lives. Tonight the Chu emperor Xiang Guang is paying a visit to Imperial Concubine Yus Hua Yang House. After being intimate with each other, Xiang Guang and Imperial Concubine Yu have been sound asleep. The 2 ladies-in-waiting outside the door have been drowsing but they are still trying hard to keep their eyes opened.

    Xiang Guang, who has been sleeping deeply, suddenly starts to shake. Beads of sweat have stuck out on his forehead. It seems he is in a state of extreme panic and agitation.

    No. Dont. Dont Xiang Guang continuously says in a very low and confusing voice. It is simply impossible to hear clearly what he is saying. However, next, even Xiang Guangs entire body shakes and Imperial Concubine Yu beside him is woken up with a start.

    Your Majesty, Your Majesty, are you alright, Your Majesty? Seeing that Xiang Guangs face is very red, Imperial Concubine Yu cannot help panicking.

    Die! With his eyes still closed, Xiang Guang suddenly shouts and brandishes his arms, which immediately smash on Imperial Concubine Yus body.

    Bang! Imperial Concubine Yu is knocked down from the bed. Spitting out a mouthful of blood, she looks at Xiang Guang in disbelief because she is the imperial concubine the emperor pampers the most. At this moment Xiang Guang also wakes up. He sees that Imperial Concubine Yu has been seriously injured by himself but his expression is still frosty.

    Someone call an imperial doctor. After saying, Xiang Guang stops paying attention to Imperial Concubine Yu. He gets dressed and goes right past heavily-injured Imperial Concubine Yu without even looking at her.

    In a short while, Xiang Guang has appeared in the imperial study. A hawk-like hook-nosed man dressed in black is respectfully standing on one side.

    Yang Li is in charge of the 3 Eastern region counties, right? Xiang Guang asks coldly.

    Yes, Your Majesty. The hook-nosed man replies respectfully.

    Xiang Guang suddenly stands up, stares at the hook-nosed man and says: Integrate all the intelligence about Qin De then let me know. Also, increase the supervising force in the 3 Eastern region counties. I dont believe he only has 600,000 troops. You must investigate and ascertain what tricks he has up his sleeve. Yang Li has only found out so little info after so many years. Hes really useless. From now on, let Zhen Xu have charge of the entire secret service in the 3 Eastern region counties. Transfer Yang Li back.

    Yes! The hook-nosed man gets down on 1 knee and says.

    You can go. Xiang Guang dismisses him with a wave of a sleeve. The hook-nosed man bows then disappears directly in the imperial study with shaking movement of his body.

    Xiang Guang looks forward but his mind is thinking about something else.

    If I dont investigate and ascertain everything about Qin De, I wont be able to sleep and eat well. Xiang Guang has a recurring nightmare in which he is killed by Qin De. What he is worried about the most is that Qin De discovers that past incident so he wants to wipe out the Qin clan. However the Qin clan has been controlling the 3 Eastern region counties for several hundred years and therefore, to Xiang Guang, it is a deep-rooted problem which he cannot eliminate simply as he wishes.

    At the moment, Xiang Guangs tactic is to investigate Qin De clearly. If Qin De gives any indications of rebellion, he will mobilize the entire kingdoms forces to destroy the Qin clan. If Qin De is still unaware of that past incident and does not rebel against him then this matter will be over.

    This idiot Yang Li is completely useless. But Zhen Xu will surely find out everything. Qin De, you better not know about that incident. You should know your place as East Vanquishing Prince. If you really want to rebel, then Xiang Guangs eyes radiate ferocious cold rays of light.

    B2C10: Rock within rock (2)

    Beside a small lake in a wood on Mount Dong Lan,

    Its been 10 whole days. Qin Yu is resting his back against a huge rock. Holding a blade of grass in his mouth, he looks at the lake in front of him with a powerless expression on his face.

    Qin Yu is now 18 years old. For 10 whole years from age 8 to age 18, his body continuously improved and transformed. After obtaining the Meteoric Tear, he improved especially fast, like a meteor leaping through the sky. However, some time ago Qin Yu discovered that his progress started to slow down. And for the last 10 days, he has rarely seen any improvement.

    It looks like Ive finally reached the peak of my Houtian level! Qin Yu suddenly bursts out laughing: At the peak of the Houtian level, other people have 700 to 800 jin of strength in one arm. Today, with 300 jin of weights on my body, I can still lift a 1400 jin object with one arm. If I take off the weights, perhaps Ill be able to lift even 1500 jin.

    Agility Compared to his strength, his agility is even at a higher level. Relying on the body-maneuvering skill he created himself, he can even neutralize the wind resistance at his fastest speed. If Qin Yu moves with his entire power, his whole body will become a blur. Those with insufficient power will not even be able to see his silhouette.

    Strength, agility, sensitivity, bodys resistance, Qin Yu has reached an inhuman level in every aspect.

    In terms of strength alone, even Xiantian experts are far inferior to him. However, if Xiantian experts use the Xiantian internal energy in their bodies, it will be difficult for Qin Yu to defeat them. Those who have Xiantian energy are Xiantian experts. In spite of everything, they belong to the Xiantian level. Xiantian and Houtian are essentially different.

    After breaking through the peak of the Houtian level, I should be at the Xiantian level. But I practice external techniques. What must an external practitioner do to reach the Xiantian level? Qin Yu whispers. For the moment he cannot come up with any solutions. After all no one has ever reached the Xiantian level through body training.

    Suddenly a resounding eagle cry rises. Then the sharp whizzing sounds of an incoming gust of wind reach Qin Yu. A huge black eagle descends from the sky and lands beside him.

    Youve arrived, Xiao Hei. This time you unexpectedly went out for 3 whole days. Brat, I even thought youd forgotten me! Qin Yu strokes the black eagles crown cozily and says. Only he can stroke the black eagles crown. Other people simply cannot touch it.

    The black eagle is even one size larger than 2 years ago. It reaches 2 m in height by merely standing. Once it spreads its wings, Qin Yu can even turn his body round while lying on the back of the black eagle. The crown was pure golden in the past, but now there is a tint of red in it, which makes it look like a flame.

    The black eagle looks at Qin Yu resentfully and even flaps its wings hurriedly. As soon as Qin Yu sees this he laughs. He and the black eagle have been together for so many years so he can totally understand the meaning of every expression in the black eagles eyes.

    Alright, alright, you havent forgotten me. I misunderstood you, okay? says Qin Yu laughingly.

    Only now does the black eagle nod its head. Qin Yu cannot help giving a laugh.

    Xiao Hei, come, I havent fought you for a long time. Lets spar. As Qin Yu is saying, his body instantly charges toward the black eagle. He turns his hand into a claw and grabs at the eagle.

    The black eagle gives a shake of its big head as if it is in a jolly mood. With a wave of its wing, it easily blocks Qin Yus blow. When Qin Yus eagle claw smashes on the black eagles wing, it unexpectedly makes a noise which sounds as if it has just hit steel. Qin Yus fingers are even stronger than that Eagle Claw Kings, yet the offensive force of his fingers cannot hurt the black eagle.

    Your black feathers are already even comparable to black iron. Qin Yu retreats a step. Seeing that his fingers powerful offensive force could only leave a mark on some outermost feathers, he cannot help feeling powerless.

    The black eagles feathers are shiny black and extremely sharp. It wings are covered in a thick layer of feathers, but Qin Yus fingers offensive force could not even break a small area of the feathers, therefore it can be imagined how terrifying the black eagles defense is.

    The black eagle shakes its head proudly while flapping its wings in a disorderly manner.

    Dont be cocky. It looks like Ill have to use this one move. Qin Yu quickly takes off his black iron arm guards and leg guards and the black gold undershirt. He immediately feels light as if his entire body is a swan feather.

    The black eagles defense is awfully strong but its offence is even more shocking. Those 2 claws can even break black iron into pieces easily. They are definitely comparable to extremely good Xian-grade weapons. But the defense of Qin Yus body has difficulty withstanding even black iron weapons, not to mention the black eagles claws.

    Ha-ha, are you ready to be plucked? Qin Yus whole body starts to move like a flash.

    Yes, his only solution -- use speed!

    The black eagles speed in midair is fast. Its agility on the ground is also pretty good. But compared to Qin Yu, who has extraordinary agility, it is still a bit slower. However, only after taking off the 300 jin of weights did Qin Yu become faster than the black eagle.


    With a push of his feet, Qin Yus entire body turns into a blur. As soon as his feet touch the surrounding trees or rocks, he changes direction extremely fast. When he reaches his fastest speed, it looks as if he is attacking the black eagle from all directions at the same time.

    With a wave of its wings, the black eagle starts to move extremely fast as well. It can also change direction very easily with a wave of the wings. The eagles body is designed entirely for the sake of speed so the wind resistance it experiences is minimized.

    One man and one eagle are attacking each other extremely fast.

    Taste my Vigorous Diamond Finger! Qin Yus forefinger pierces the air like a sharp arrow and hits the black eagles chest hard. This is his strongest finger force but it can only damage a small area of the feathers, while there is a thick layer of feathers on the black eagles chest.

    The black eagle seems to be very angry. It unexpectedly redoubles its speed. In an instant, only various blurs can be seen at the site of the fight.

    Whoa, have you gone mad? Qin Yu shouts loudly. His speed has also reached its limit. Using the Seven North Stars Moonlight Dance, he looks like a dancer in the moonlight. He easily moves extremely fast beside the black eagle while attacking it nonstop with his hands. Even though the black eagles speed is fast, every strike it executes is spotted very early by Qin Yu. This is because the basis of Qin Yus body-maneuvering skill is to make use of wind forces, but every time the black eagle attacks the winds automatically change, which is also detected by Qin Yu.

    Suddenly --

    A resounding eagle cry rises. The black eagle has finally gone mad.

    Hoo hoo ~~~ It flaps its wings extremely fast like crazy. In an instant, a typhoon seems to have started at the site of the fight. All of the nearby trees are bent toward the ground by the wind. Then, with several clack sounds, some branches are continuously broken. Naturally, this terrifying wind speed adversely affects Qin Yus movements.

    Qin Yu gives a smile.

    Still the same old move. Qin Yus body rushes northward very fast. Having fought each other frequently, he and the eagle are extremely familiar with each others techniques. Therefore, upon encountering this skill of the black eagle, he wastes no time rushing to a place.

    The rocky forest!

    The rocky forests name says it all. This is a place where rocks stand in great numbers. However, because this place have gone through several great fights between Qin Yu and the black eagle, all of the smaller rocks have already been blown away or broken into pieces. Now there are only some huge rocks which weigh several thousand jin left.

    In the rocky forest,

    Qin Yu is shuffling back and forth in the rocky forest easily. The black eagle is chasing him like a black thunderbolt. In terms of speed alone, the eagle is actually just a bit inferior to Qin Yu. But it is much less sensitive than him. Qin Yu can easily change direction while moving. Even if he is running eastward extremely fast, he can turn westward in an instant.

    Bang! Bang! Bang! Bang! Bang!

    Qin Yu continuously attacks the black eagle with different forms of hand strikes including knife hand, fist and spear hand while the eagle attacks him using a combination of its beak and wings. Those sharp claws, however, are not used to attack because, after all, only by flying up can it attack Qin Yu with the claws. But if it flies up, Qin Yu will not be able to do anything other than get attacked passively as he cannot fly, and the fight will become boring.

    Bang! The black eagle makes a wave of a wing. After Qin Yu dodges the wing, it smashes on a huge rock on one side. Because the hardness of the eagles wings is really excellent, that wing actually shatters the huge rock.

    Qin Yu suddenly throws a palm strike at the eagles neck but the eagle flashes away with a movement of its wings. Qin Yus heavy palm strike then fiercely hits a huge rock. Naturally, that huge rock is broken into pieces by this palm strike because, whether in terms of force or in in terms of toughness, Qin Yus palm strike is even more formidable than that of the Iron Sand Palm expert among the 8 great external experts at that time.

    A man and an eagle keep fighting this way. It is really unlucky for the entire rocky forest because they blow up various huge rocks wherever they go to.

    Hah! Uttering a loud shout, Qin Yu suddenly shoots up into the air then strikes down toward the black eagle. At this moment, the eagle is resting its back against a huge rock and basically has no way to dodge. But with an easy movement of its wings, it, unbelievably, moves away sideways several meters. Qin Yus heavy palm strike therefore hits the huge rock the eagle was resting its back against.


    The rock is shattered, but Qin Yu stops moving.

    Xiao Hei, lets stop. When Qin Yus palm strike hit, he felt something wrong because there was an intense reaction from this huge rock. There were also reactions when he shattered other huge rocks before, but they were nothing special. However, this huge rocks reaction was really so tremendous that even his palm tingled.

    Hearing Qin Yus shout, the black eagle also comes to see in doubt.

    This what is this? Qin Yu looks at the flaming red rock before him in astonishment. No, it should be called a crystal rather than a rock. Can a rock which radiates flaming red rays of light still be called a rock?

    Who could have thought that after a 10,000 jin huge rock was shattered there would be a flaming red crystal inside? This crystal is very large, almost half as tall as Qin Yu, and is a near perfect cylinder. To be exact, it is a rod, only that this rod is much shorter and thicker than normal rods. It is as thick as a human thigh.

    Qin Yu holds this crystal with both hands and feels that it is warm.

    Oh, so heavy. He is amazed to discover that the crystal is unusually heavy. He immediately exerts the strength of his hands. Suddenly, with a low shout, he lifts the flaming red crystal up. Qin Yus eyes pop out of his head at once: Oh my goodness! Who couldve thought such a small cylinder would weigh about 2000 jin?

    B2C11: Forging grandmaster (1)

    What is this thing actually? Frowning, Qin Yu examines the flaming red crystal in his hands carefully. This crystal is unusually heavy and even radiates flaming red rays of light. The crystal itself is also warm.

    Qin Yu has seen quite a lot of treasures in the princely mansion and has also read many books at Misty Villa so there are only few treasures on the Qian Long continent he still does not know about. However, when it comes to this flaming red crystal, he has absolutely no idea what it is.

    Qin Yu drops the flaming red crystal. It causes a bang as it falls on the ground. Obviously it is shockingly heavy.

    Lets test its hardness first. This crystal is so heavy, moreover, that rock-shattering palm strike of mine couldnt break it, so it should be very hard. Qin Yu forms a claw with his hand then executes the Eagle Claw Art technique. He fiercely grabs at the flaming red crystal.

    A loud metallic noise rises. The flaming red crystal does not get even a scratch.

    Ss ~~ Qin Yu takes a deep cold breath. He feels the 5 attacking fingers tingling. That claw strike was executed with his entire power yet he could not even scratch the crystal therefore it is easy to imagine how great its hardness is. Qin Yu frowns and thinks. Suddenly he turns around and says: Xiao Hei, you come and test how hard this crystal is.

    Xiao Hei shakes its head a couple of times in excitement. With a wave of the wings, it flies up then dives down. Using those sharp claws it grabs at the crystal ruthlessly.

    A loud metallic clatter rises again but the crystal still does not get even a scratch. Xiao Hei lands on the ground and gives Qin Yu a wink, looking very disheartened as if it feels aggrieved because its claws have been defeated.

    Qin Yu is dumbstruck. Only after a long time do his eyes glitter with excitement: Ha-ha, I struck it rich. I struck it rich. Xiao Heis claws can even tear black iron easily like paper. Their hardness can match Xian-grade weapons. Since even his claws cant break the crystal, its at least a precious forging material. Well, lets test again with the Yuchang sword.


    Qin Yu makes a wave with a hand. A shaft of black light flashes by, hacking fiercely at the flaming red crystal. A clang is heard. Holding the Yuchang sword in his hand, Qin Yu looks at the flaming red crystal before him in excitement: Such a huge piece of first-class ore is definitely a priceless treasure. Perhaps it can even be forged into high-Xian-grade weapons.

    The Yuchang sword is a low-Xian-grade weapon.

    Ores have to undergo many complex processes to be finally forged into weapons. But weapons are much harder than the ores they are made from. For example, the meteorites from which the Yuchang sword was forged would definitely not be able to withstand the chops made with the sword. Even the Yuchang sword cannot leave a mark on this flaming red crystal therefore its hardness must be at a shocking level.

    Not even middle-Xian-grade ores can remain unblemished after being chopped at with the Yuchang sword, then how can this flaming red crystal?

    This is high-Xian-grade ore or perhaps even better. Qin Yus eyes shine. It is simply impossible for normal people to imagine how much a martial art expert craves for a first-rate weapon. Qin Yu, of course, has been dreaming about an absolutely excellent weapon.

    The crystal itself is already so much harder than the Yuchang sword, if it is forged into weapons, then

    Xiao Hei, lets return to the villa. Qin Yu takes off his coat and covers the flaming red crystal with it. Then he lifts the crystal up in a hug. He also knows that he cannot let everyone know about such a treasure as this crystal. Even though he does not mind, he knows the rules of the princely mansion. In the mansion, even weapons of the Yuchang swords caliber are kept in secret, not to mention this much more precious flaming red crystal.

    Hugging the 2000 jin crystal, Qin Yu immediately runs back to Misty Villa. Perhaps only he, who is so extraordinary, can carry this crystal.

    At Misty Villa, Qin Yu walks out from an underground secret room in a relaxed manner.

    Carrying 2000 jin back from the depths of the forest was really a bit tiring. With a smiling expression on his face, he moves his arms about. Having obtained such a treasure, Qin Yu is in high spirits: If father hears about this, hell definitely be delighted.

    With a smile, Qin Yu goes toward Lian Yans habitation. Suddenly 2 people are approaching him from behind. One of them is a young man who is a bit taller than Qin Yu. The other is a delicately pretty young girl dressed in green. The young man is very robust while the young girl has dainty facial features. The most attractive thing about her is that air of delicacy.

    Brother Yu. Seeing Qin Yu, the green-clad young girls eyes immediately brighten. She quickly runs up to him. Brother Yu, this time youve already gone out for almost several days. Why dont you see me for a while? The young girl mutters.

    Xiao Lu, wait until Im free, Ill definitely spend more time with you. Qin Yu tenderly strokes Xiao Lus head.

    This green-clad young girl is none other than Xiao Lu and the young man beside her is Tie Shan. The brother and sister have asked to become Lian Yans disciples. Xiao Lu does not like fighting or killing so she has only been practicing her internal technique and usually spends her time piping. The jade pipe on her waist was given to her as a present by Qin Yu.

    Youre always saying when you have free time, but youre always busy. Brother Yu, why cant you take a break? Xiao Lu looks a bit discontented. Her brother Yu usually says he will spend time with her when he is free, but heaven only knows when he will have free time.

    Take a break? Qin Yu is slightly startled. From age 8 to age 18, the number of breaks Qin Yu really took can be counted on the fingers of one hand. He has always had a single-minded determination to train hard so that he can help his father as soon as possible and become a capable assistant to his father.

    Xiao Lu, dont fool around. Tie Shan reproves her then turns to Qin Yu and says with a smile: Xiao Yu, youre looking for Master, right? Hes taking a rest in the courtyard.

    Good, then Ill go find Grandpa Lian first. Qin Yu bids them a farewell then goes toward Lian Yans place.

    Xiao Lu, however, follows his back with her eyes. She slightly wrinkles her nose and says: Brother Yu has always been busy. When will he ever have a rest? Xiao Lu has been staying at Misty Villa for nearly 5 years so she naturally knows how hard Qin Yu trains.

    Xiao Lu, dont say that. Xiao Yu is different from us. Even though hes East Vanquishing Princes 3rd son, he chose external practice, the most painful path in martial arts. I remember when I first came here I saw him shoving his hands into iron grains! Tie Shan seems to be recalling that scene he saw. Shoveling iron grains could only be used as a form of training after Qin Yus finger strength had reached a very high level. If he had used iron grains from the beginning, his fingers would have been finished.

    Tie Shans eyes are full of wonderment: Shoveling iron grains, his fingers mustve hurt as if pierced by needles. The nerves of the fingertips are linked with the heart. Xiao Lu, you simply cant imagine the pain he had to endure. However, finger strength training was only one of the numerous forms of limit training he underwent every day. From dawn till dusk, every form of training he did challenged the human bodys limits. His body has always been enduring the torment of defying limits. And hes been training like this since he was 8.

    Following Qin Yus back with his eyes, Tie Shan has nothing but admiration for him.

    Following Qin Yus back with her eyes, Xiao Lus eyes glisten.

    In her heart, brother Yu is always carefree, big-hearted, and warm like the Sun. However, this brother Yu, despite being East Vanquishing Princes son, has been experiencing those utmost tortures to the body since 8 years old.

    Despite having the Meteoric Tear, if Qin Yu wants to make use of its positive effects, he also has to train until reaching a physical limit. He has to train his fingers until they hurt as if broken off. He has to do deep squats until his legs have muscle cramps and his head is pounding Only when he reaches a physical limit will the Meteoric Tear release its fantastic power.

    If he wants to get something, he has to pay first.

    In order to reach his current level, Qin Yu has paid a lot, an awful lot.

    In Lian Yans courtyard, Lian Yan is lying in a deck chair, drinking tea and enjoying the tranquility of the moment.

    Grandpa Lian.

    As soon as he hears Qin Yus familiar voice, Lian Yan smiles to the point where his eyes start to narrow. He turns to Qin Yu and says with a smile: Xiao Yu, its so hard to see you. Its still light now, yet you already returned from training. Lian Yan is always unable to suppress his delight when he sees Qin Yu, just like how a grandpa can never help rejoicing at seeing his grandson.

    Qin Yu goes up to him through the door of the courtyard. He wants to find a forging expert to handle that flaming red crystal. Naturally, when he wants to find a forging expert, the 1st thing he thinks about is to ask Lian Yan.

    B2C12: Forging grandmaster (2)

    Grandpa Lian, Ive obtained an extremely precious piece of ore. According to my estimation, it should be a high-Xian-grade ore. Qin Yus first sentence makes Lian Yan suddenly jump up.

    Lian Yans eyes are full of astonishment. He looks at Qin Yu in disbelief. Only after a long time does he says: Xiao Yu, you cant joke about this matter. High-Xian-grade ores are what even Xiantian experts dream about. The weapons forged from them will definitely be marvelous. How can first-rate ores of this kind be obtained easily?

    To people on the Qian Long continent, weapons are simply divided into mundane-grade ones and Xian-grade ones. The Xian-grade is then divided into 3 sub-grades. And it is the same with ores. Even East Vanquishing Prince with such a great influence only has several tens weapons hidden in the Weapon Storing Warehouse. Most of them are low-Xian-grade, some are middle-Xian-grade, but only 2 of them are high-Xian-grade.

    Grandpa Lian, how can I deceive you? I made a chop with the Yuchang sword to test and couldnt even leave a mark. What can it be if its not high-Xian-grade? Qin Yu immediately explains.

    You couldnt even leave a mark when chopping with the Yuchang sword? Lian Yan understands, if even the Yuchang sword cannot leave a mark, this piece of ore is definitely high-Xian-grade. Xiao Yu, what does this piece of ore look like? How large is it, about the size of a fist?

    In general, the size of a piece of ore is inversely proportional to its value. If it is about the size of a fist, it will already be enough to forge such a weapon as a short sword or a short knife.

    A fist? Qin Yu says in surprise.

    The flaming red crystal he obtained is approximately 1 m high and as thick as a human thigh. It is much larger than a fist.

    Is it even smaller than a fist? Then it can only be made into a weapon such as a dagger and the like. But thats still pretty good. At least youll have a high-Xian-grade weapon. Lian Yan says laughingly. Only now does Qin Yu beside him understand what he means. He cannot help bursting out laughing.

    Youre wrong, Grandpa Lian. The piece of ore I found is very big and looks like a rod. It is 1 m high and as thick as a human thigh. Its much bigger than a fist, says Qin Yu while gesticulating with his hands.

    Lian Yans eyes immediately pop out of his head. His cheeks even redden.

    A rod even 1 m high?

    Lian Yan is not Qin Yu. He thinks about many other things. Such a large piece of ore, and even of the high Xian-grade, will probably be enough to make several tens weapons. And they will be the most marvelous weapons of the high Xian-grade, no less!

    Several tens weapons, what kind of idea is this?

    Of course its true. You neednt ask. Qin Yu feels at a loss when Lian Yan keeps asking again and again. However, he does not understand that this is because Lian Yan cannot believe what he said. If a pie was dropped from the sky, anybody would find it very hard to believe temporarily.

    Quick, let me have a look at it. Lian Yan immediately says to Qin Yu, who nods his agreement at once. He then hurries Lian Yan to that underground secret room.

    In the underground secret room, Lian Yans eyes glitter as he sees the flaming red crystal.

    The flaming red crystal radiates a light red glow. It is very lustrous and clear. And even the grain inside the crystal can be seen. As soon as Lian Yan sees the crystals appearance, he knows this piece of ore is a priceless treasure. When compared with it, pearls and agates pale into insignificance.

    Lian Yan gives his waist a pull. A purple flexible sword unexpectedly appears. He makes shaking movement with his hand and the purple flexible sword is straightened out perfectly at once. It then turns into a purple shaft of light and slashes at the flaming red crystal.

    As expected. Lian Yans eyes shine with fierceness as he stares directly at the flaming red crystal before him: Even my Purple Core flexible sword cannot damage it. Its definitely high Xian-grade. Lian Yan turns to Qin Yu on one side and says seriously: Xiao Yu, such a priceless treasure must be taken to the princely mansion at once. If you want any superb weapons, you can ask Mr. Hei, a forging grandmaster, to make them for you. With such a big crystal, after youve forged your weapons and suit of armor, therell surely be some remnants. I think giving your father the remnants is not a bad idea, dont you think?

    Hearing Lian Yans words, Qin Yu immediately understands everything.

    The weapons made from such a priceless piece of ore will definitely be superb weapons. If these weapons are sent to his father, his father will surely be able to unleash their power in war. And Qin Yu never cares about money or treasures.

    No problem, I only need a tenth of this flaming red crystal. Ill give father the rest. Qin Yu says with a smile.

    Looking at Qin Yu, Lian Yans eyes are full of approval: Xiao Yu, youre so young but youre not bewitched by such a priceless treasure. Your mind has really far surpassed ordinary peoples minds. When a person can stay unconcerned in front of such a priceless treasure, this persons mind definitely cannot be matched by those of ordinary people. If a martial artist wants to make breakthroughs, their mind must be well-matched to their martial prowess.

    Seeing the look in Lian Yans eyes, Qin Yu says: Grandpa Lian, dont look at me like that or Ill get embarrassed. He even looks very shy as he is saying. Seeing this, Lian Yan cannot help laughing out loud.

    A person must cultivate their mind. As he has gone through difficult times, Qin Yu is such a person. Every time he breaks through a limit, his mind is trained, and he has been doing limit training since 8 years old, therefore his mind is much tougher than ordinary peoples.

    Generally, people who are alone are independent and self-reliant. This is because if a person is usually alone they will naturally ponder.

    Pondering about life, pondering about their own values, the more they ponder, the more thoroughly they can understand things.

    Qin Yu is also like that. As a child, oftentimes he was alone and watched stars by himself. Later, after experiencing some events, his mind has fully matured. Now he totally understands what kind of person he should be -- To him, nothing in the world is as thick as blood or as important as family relationships. As far as money and treasures are concerned, if he already has enough to meet his basic needs, what is the use of having more? When 20,000 liang of silver are enough for a person to spend all their life, what is the point of wanting 100,000 liang? Therefore, he is naturally not greedy.

    People have dreams. Qin Yu also has a dream. To him, family love comes first and his dream comes second. As for his own life, without family love and dreams, living would be no different from being a zombie.

    Qin Yu likes the blood-boiling feeling he has after every time he breaks through a limit. He likes close-quarters combat and the intense emotions the moment life and death are decided. Qin Yus dream is to burn his passion of life like a meteor. To him, life must be blood-boiling like this

    Grandpa Lian, have you arranged for someone to deliver this flaming red crystal to the mansion? Qin Yu says with a smile.

    Right, Ill make arrangements immediately. Lian Yan says hurriedly. In dealing with serious matters, he must not relax his concentration a bit. He goes to make arrangements at once. Qin Yu takes a look at the flaming red crystal and thinks: I didnt think this crystal would be so useful to father. This can also be considered a benefit. Then he turns around and leaves the secret room while smiling.


    In a separate courtyard in the East Vanquishing Prince mansion, quite a few people have gathered together by this time, including East Vanquishing Princes 3 sons, Lian Yan and Manager Ge Min. There are also 3 bare-chested large men and a black-clad middle-aged man. All of them are looking at the flaming red crystal in the center.

    Is it possible to forge it, Mr. Hei? Lian Yan asks the black-clad middle-aged man.

    The black-clad middle-aged man does not reply. He goes up to the flaming red crystal, opens his eyes wide and carefully examines every place of the crystal. His attention is being concentrated highly. Seeing him acting like that, Qin Yu and the others on the side are all consciously unwilling to disturb this forging grandmaster.

    B2C13: Forging grandmaster (3)

    The black-clad middle-aged man examines for a long time, then, with his face full of extreme satisfaction, he turns to Qin Yu and exclaims in admiration: Originally I thought this kind of priceless treasure could only be seen in the Immense Wilderness, the most dangerous place in the world. But 3rd Prince found this priceless treasure on the ordinary Dong Lan Mountain. This is really unbelievable.

    I was just lucky, says Qin Yu with a smile.

    The black-clad middle-aged man turns to Lian Yan and says: Senior Lian, since Mount Dong Lan had such a priceless treasure, youve searched again in the surroundings of this crystal, havent you?

    Of course I searched. Lian Yan shakes his head and says with a sigh: But this kind of rare natural treasure can only be obtained by people with a predestined affinity with it. Xiao Yu found this treasure accidentally, but the several hundred experts I sent didnt see a bit of ore even after turning the whole rocky forest over and shattering all the huge rocks.

    But Qin Feng says: This flaming red crystal alone should already be enough for us. It was Xiao Yus destiny to find this flaming red crystal. So, when we searched again relentlessly, we shouldnt be disheartened despite getting nothing.

    Thats right. Ive never heard of such a big chunk of first-class ore. The black-clad middle-aged man stares at the flaming red crystal as if he is a cat looking at a fish.

    Mr. Hei, are you sure you can forge this flaming red crystal? Qin Yu on one side asks. All the other people immediately stare at this forging grandmaster. Forging is not simple at all. Even when good materials are ready, it still requires a good forging expert.

    East Vanquishing Prince actually had to pay a very high price in the past to obtain the services of this Mr. Hei. He has been staying in the princely mansion for over 10 years.

    Mr. Hei shakes his head. All the others are stupefied.

    I cant be certain without trying first. With a grab, Mr. Hei takes off his black gown, revealing the naked top half of his body. He cannot help smiling slightly. It is only because he is extremely excited that he smiles. Its been a long time since I was in action with my entire power.

    Bring me the Blue Flaming Water. Mr. Hei gives an order.

    Yes! A bare-chested large man immediately goes back to his room. After a while, he brings out a glass bottle. The bottle is containing a blue liquid. The strangest thing is that there is unexpectedly a light-colored layer of flames on the surface of this blue liquid.

    Mr. Hei receives the glass bottle. Suddenly his hands start to redden. A heat flow starts to permeate through the air.

    The eyes of the 3 bare-chested large men on one side all glitter.

    Master is finally getting into action. Its been a very long time since we saw he was this serious.

    Masters Sky Burning Art has already reached the highest level. How formidable it is in action, I wonder? The 3 large men are discussing with each other. These men are none other than Mr. Heis 3 personal disciples so naturally the East Vanquishing Prince mansion has placed emphasis on training them as well.

    Qin Yu, Qin Feng, Qin Zheng, Lian Yan and Ge Min are all also watching this Mr. Hei.

    Mr. Hei removes the glass bottles stopper. At the same time, he slightly tilts the bottle in his hand. The Blue Flaming Water immediately drops onto the flaming red crystal at once, causing a series of ss ss noises. The Blue Flaming Water is changing violently.

    This flaming red crystal is truly formidable. Even the Blue Flaming Water cant leave a mark on it. A disciple of Mr. Heis says in amazement.

    After a while, that Blue Flaming Water has turned into a membrane which completely covers the flaming red crystal.

    Humph! Mr. Hei utters a cold humph. His eyes suddenly glitter. His 2 hands immediately spew 2 streams of incandescent flames out directly onto the membrane on the surface of the flaming red crystal. That membrane is what the Blue Flaming Water changed into. However, the flaming red crystal unexpectedly remains unaffected.

    Martial brother, even Masters Sky Burning Flames coupled with the Blue Flaming Water couldnt leave a mark on it. How is this possible? A disciple of Mr. Heis is shocked.

    Not even high-Xian-grade crystals can remain intact under Masters Sky Burning Flames. This Another disciple also becomes doubtful.

    The excitement in Mr. Heis eyes heightens. Suddenly his face becomes very red then turns ashen. At the same time the flames on his hands start to shrink. However, the temperature in the courtyard suddenly increases.

    So strong. Qin Yu is shocked. He can totally feel how terrifying the flames are. In his mind, he has a feeling that he is definitely no match for Mr. Hei. He even feels that the air in the entire courtyard has started to vibrate because of the high temperature.

    Qin Yus guess is totally correct. Not only is this Mr. Hei a forging grandmaster, he has also reached the peak of the Xiantian level. He is one of the very best experts among East Vanquishing Princes subordinates.

    The special flames produced from Xiantian internal energy are much more formidable than ordinary flames. General Xian-grade ores can only be melted by flames like these. Qin Yu praises Mr. Hei highly in his mind. But as soon as he takes a look at that flaming red crystal, he is dumbfounded.

    Under such conditions, the flaming red crystal is still unimpaired.

    Humph! Mr. Heis face suddenly blackens. Bang! With a loud bang, Mr. Heis entire body sends forth flames, which even burn away all of his clothes, except for his shorts. This pair of shorts is unexpectedly made of black gold threads.

    Mr. Heis school obviously knew that when he utilized his internal energy to the utmost his whole body would send forth flames, therefore this black gold pair of shorts was passed down to him. Because they were knitted out of black gold threads, they are a real masterpiece. Only after saving for a long time did the elders in Mr. Heis school have that much black gold.

    That pair of shorts seems to be made of the same material as my black gold undershirt. Qin Yu thinks to himself.

    At the same time, the flames on Mr. Heis hands shrink even more, but they also become increasingly more incandescent. Heat waves start rolling in the entire courtyard one after another. All of the people around cannot help backing away a long distance.

    What flames! Even Xiantian experts bodies will be burnt up by them without leaving any ashes. Qin Yu praises highly in his mind. Such flames can even melt Xian-grade ores, not to mention the human body.

    Qin Yu and his 2 brothers, Lian Yan and the 3 disciples as well all stare at the flaming red crystal, hoping that this crystal can melt. If it cannot even be melted, how are they going to forge something out of it? As every second goes by, everybodys eyes totally focus on the flaming red crystal.

    Suddenly --

    Pu! Mr. Hei spits out a mouthful of blood. The color of his face changes from being black to very white. In an instant, the flames on his whole body disappear as well.

    Master! A disciple from behind immediately hands clothes to him. After getting dressed, Mr. Hei looks at the flaming red crystal and lets out a deep sigh. Then he turns around, looks at Qin Yu and the other people and says: Gentlemen, I have no way to deal with this flaming red crystal.

    Seeing that Mr. Heis face is so pale, everybody knows that this forging grandmaster has tried his best.

    How is this possible? Mr. Hei, didnt you forge this superb high-Xian-grade weapon for me some years ago? How come you cant even melt the crystal now? Qin Feng, grasping the battle knife on his waist, asks Mr. Hei. When Qin Feng reached the Xiantian level, in order to reward him, Qin De had a chunk of a high-Xian-grade ore forged into a superb weapon and gave it to Qin Feng.

    Mr. Hei looks at the battle knife, shakes his head and says with a smile: Idiot, you still dont get it? This is certainly because this flaming red crystal is already superior to the high Xian-grade.

    Startled, Qin Yu asks doubtfully: Could it be the highest grade of ores isnt the high Xian-grade? In Qin Yus mind, weapons are divided into mundane-grade ones and Xian-grade ones. In theory, the high Xian-grade should represent the best quality possible. How can there still be something ranked higher than the high Xian-grade?

    All of you know nothing. Mr. Heis eyes radiate loftiness.

    In the forging business, he is definitely a figure at the top of the pyramid.

    That so-called division of weapons into the mundane grade and the Xian grade only applies to us mortals. Im asking you, what weapons do Shangxian use? Humph, even a high-Xian-grade battle knife, when coming up against a Shangxians flying sword, will be pierced through easily like paper. There is a hint of loftiness on the corners of Mr. Heis mouth.

    Everybody present is immediately shocked.

    That is true. Because Shangxian can hover on the 9th level of the sky and kill an enemy from thousands of li away, what must the grade of their weapons be? Actually, Qin Yu and the others have heard that those flying swords can fly extremely far and kill someone from thousands of li away and, moreover, not even high Xian-grade weapons can withstand them.

    Mundane grade and Xian grade are merely terms coined by us mortals. The scope of our understanding is only that big. Its simply impossible for us to imagine the world of Shangxian. This flaming red crystal, if I guess correctly, should be a material to forge Shangxian weapons. Staring at the flaming red crystal, Mr. Hei says very firmly.

    Qin Yu looks at the flaming red crystal. It is still intact and emits a light red glow.

    Whats the use of this flaming red crystal? It cant even be melted, how can it be forged into weapons? Qin Feng shakes his head and says. Everybody, including Lian Yan and Qin Yu, has a powerless expression on his face. That is right. They cannot even melt it, how can they make weapons out of it?

    Qin Yu shakes his head and says with a smile: Forget it. When even Mr. Hei cant melt it, there arent any people in the world who can melt and forge it.

    Well, dont be so disappointed, Third Prince. I have no way to melt it. But theres still a real forging grandmaster who can melt and forge it, says Mr. Hei with a smile. Hearing this, everyone looks at him in doubt, including his 3 disciples.

    A real forging grandmaster?

    Theres still a forging grandmaster more capable than Mr. Hei? Qin Zheng says doubtfully. All the people present are looking at Mr. Hei in doubt.

    Mr. Hei says with a confident smile: All of you dont know about this so Ill tell you a secret, but dont spread it. Actually, not only is a Shangxian an invincible expert, at the same time he is definitely a forging expert as well.

    Oh? All of the people present know that Shangxian are invincible and that their flying swords can kill people very easily. However, they do not know anything about Shangxians level in forging.

    All Shangxian can use a kind of flame. That flame is much more formidable than the flame of my internal energy. With that kind of flame, wont it be very easy to forge a weapon? In fact, youll all understand if you think about it. Every Shangxian has at least a flying sword, but where do their flying swords come from? Could they be dropped from the sky, or are they forged? Mr. Hei says to everyone in a mysterious manner.

    Only now does everyone realize what he means.

    Right, Ill send for Shangxian Fengyuzi at once, says Lian Yan immediately.

    However, Qin Yu looks up and gives a whistle. He then looks at everyone and says: Xiao Hei has the fastest speed. Xiao Hei and I will go to invite Uncle Feng. In a moment, a beam of black light shoots down directly from the sky. It is none other than the black eagle. Qin Yu gets on its back like a flash. The black eagle then utters an eagle cry and flies outward directly extremely fast.

    B2C14: The Xiuzhen world (1)

    The Qian Long continent has a strangely large number of species of wild beasts. Quite a few people have tamed wild birds and beasts. However, these tamed birds and beasts in general are only loyal to their own masters, therefore other people basically cannot ride them and, moreover, it is difficult to domesticate wild beasts on a large scale. Ordinarily, their job is to help deliver messages or invitations as Qin Yu is doing.

    When war breaks out, most of those bird owners will become military intelligence personnel or form airborne raiding squadrons. There is a wide variety of ways to fight a battle on the Qian Long continent. The use of various kinds of birds and beasts makes the fighting even more colorful and unpredictable. Moreover, everyone in an army does internal practice. For example, in the army under East Vanquishing Princes command, any junior soldier who has joined the army for a year is eligible to practice the lowest consummate technique of the Five Consummate Military Combat Techniques. Every junior soldier in this army is powerful enough to kill 7 or 8 ordinary people. When a soldier has more military merit, he will have a higher status, which will also allow him to practice the higher levels of the Five Consummate Military Combat Techniques.

    On the Qian Long continent, when war breaks out, urgently recruited soldiers simply cannot compare with regular soldiers. At least in terms of quality, they are so much inferior to regular soldiers. A 200,000 strong regular corps can eliminate a large army of 1,000,000 ordinary people who have been enlisted forcibly.

    Sitting on the back of the black eagle, Qin Yu looks down at the ground. In a short while he has already gone out of Yan City.

    In terms of speed, it seems Ive never heard of any kind of bird which can match the black eagle. Qin Yu strokes the black eagles neck while smiling.

    The speed of the black eagle is astonishingly fast. At least according to Qin Yus knowledge, there are no birds as fast as the black eagle. After all, eagles are already always extremely fast, and Qin Yus black eagle is a special kind of eagle which is even 2 or 3 times faster than ordinary eagles.

    The black eagle dives down, heading directly for a thatched cottage. This thatched cottage is exactly where Fengyuzi usually lives. There is a lake in its surroundings. The area around the cottage is very quiet. Since it shows no signs of human habitation, no one will come to disturb him.

    At this moment, a Xian crane flies up from the lake nearby on one side of the house. It is none other than Fengyuzis transport. Fengyuzi himself is standing outside the thatched cottage. Looking up at Qin Yu, who is descending from the sky, he smiles broadly.

    Uncle Feng, shouts Qin Yu in excitement after jumping down directly from the back of the black eagle.

    Xiao Yu, why have you come to my place? Fengyuzi says with a smile. Fengyuzi himself is so much older than even Lian Yan but he and Qin De treat each other like brothers. He is the kind of person who does not regard age as important.

    When Qin Yu is about to say, he suddenly notices that Fengyuzis eyes are unexpectedly totally focusing on the black eagle.

    Uncle Feng, whats the matter? You know what Xiao Hei is, dont you? asks Qin Yu doubtfully. Fengyuzi is staring at the black eagle but the black eagle simply does not give him a look. After a long time, Fengyuzi shakes his head and says: Thats strange. Judging by the crown of its head, this seems to be a Golden Flame Eagle, the king of eagles. But not only does a Golden Flame Eagle have a flame-like golden crown, its entire bodys feathers are also golden. Moreover, it is covered in blazing flames while this black eagles body is pitch-black and its claws also have an ice-cold black color.

    For the present, Fengyuzi still cannot tell what it is.

    Moreover, the Golden Flame Eagle is extremely powerful. Even when its just a few years old, using its body-protecting golden flame alone it can already cope with Jindan-stage Xiuzhenists. But obviously this black eagle is equal to a Xiantian-level mortal at best. Its much weaker than a Golden Flame Eagle, says Fengyuzi while frowning.

    Hearing Fengyuzis words, Qin Yu also knows he cannot recognize what kind of bird the black eagle is either.

    Uncle Feng, you mentioned Jindan-stage Xiuzhenists or something, who are they? According to your meaning, they seem to be even more formidable than Xiantian experts. Arent Shangxian the ones superior to Xiantian experts? asks Qin Yu doubtfully.

    Ah Only now does Fengyuzi shift his attention away from the black eagle. Seeing Qin Yus doubtful expression, he shakes his head and says with a smile: Jindan-stage Xiuzhenists, I, your Uncle Feng, am a Jindan-stage Xiuzhenist.

    Uncle Feng? Qin Yu immediately frowns deeply.

    In his mind, Xiantian experts are already extremely formidable and Shangxian, who are superior to Xiantian experts, are invincible beings. Now that Qin Yu has heard Fengyuzi say he is only a Jindan-stage Xiuzhenist, he is wondering what Fengyuzi means. What is a Xiuzhenist? And what is the Jindan-stage?

    Fengyuzi says with a smile: Alright, lets talk about this later. Ah, why have you come to find me? You cant be here just to see your Uncle Feng, right?

    Only now does Qin Yu remember why he has come here. He quickly puts the matter regarding the Jindan stage and Xiuzhenists aside and says: Uncle Feng, I obtained a flaming red crystal. That crystal is too hard. Even Mr. Hei using his entire power couldnt leave a mark on it. Mr. Hei said

    What?! Fengyuzi suddenly says in astonishment.

    Qin Yu is startled by Fengyuzis amazement. In his mind, Fengyuzi is always collected with a smiling expression as if nothing in the world, not even world-shattering events, would be able to shock him. However, unexpectedly the eyes of this Shangxian are popping out of his head in front of Qin Yu.

    Even that brat with the last name Hei in the princely mansion couldnt leave a mark on it? Fengyuzi asks again to confirm.

    Qin Yu can only nod without understanding Fengyuzis meaning.

    Fengyuzis eyes immediately glitter: That brat Heis Sky Burning Art or something has reached the highest level, added to that his schools unique Blue Flaming Water, then even pretty good ores can be melted easily. But this flaming red crystal didnt even get scratched. What precious kind of ore is this flaming red crystal actually?

    Where is this flaming red crystal? Fengyuzi stares at Qin Yu and asks.

    In the princely mansion. Qin Yu immediately replies.

    Good, lets go now. Fengyuzi does not call the Xian crane. A flying sword suddenly appears under his feet and expands. He grabs Qin Yu and makes him also stand on the sword. Then, paying no attention to the black eagle, he thus flies directly toward Yan City.

    Uncle Feng, we want you to come to Qin Yu hurriedly says. Even though he came to ask Fengyuzi to forge the flaming red crystal, he has not told him about this yet.

    Fengyuzi says with a smile: You neednt say. I know why you came. That precious kind of ore simply isnt something any of you can forge. Only the Samadhi flame of Xiuzhenists can help forge it. Qin Yu also understands what Fengyuzi says. However, he is curious about what the Samadhi flame is.

    In just a while, Qin Yus attention has totally been shifted onto the flying sword. As for the black eagle, he is not worried about it. He knows the black eagle can find him easily. It does not matter where he is, the eagle can always find him. This is perhaps because a special telepathy has been formed between him and the eagle after being together for the last 11 years.

    So this is a flying sword. Qin Yu stares at the huge flying sword in wonderment.

    There are written talismans and markings on the sword. At the same time, the sword sends forth fierce gusts of air successively. In his mind, Qin Yu is certain that, if Fengyuzi wants to kill someone, the fierce sword air of his flying sword alone can put to death Xiantian-level experts.

    The flying sword is alterable in size, which is extremely marvelous. And it is very fast, even much faster than the black eagle.

    In only a short while, the 2 of them have already arrived in the princely mansion. Without waiting for Qin Yu to say anything, Fengyuzi lands directly on that courtyard. Seeing Fengyuzi, all the people in the courtyard including Qin Feng, Qin Zheng, Lian Yan and Mr. Hei hurriedly salute: It is an honor to see you, Shangxian.

    Fengyuzis eyes, however, are totally focusing on the flaming red crystal before him and shining very brightly.

    My heaven, it is In-rock Flaming iron. Fengyuzi remembers that, when he was still practicing in the Overseas Immortal Islands, an elder of his school was so happy after finding a chunk of In-rock Flaming iron in the depths of the ocean. A flying sword was then forged from it and given to a Yuanying-stage senior of his as a reward for meritorious service.

    But that In-rock Flaming iron chunk was not like the chunk of In-rock Flaming iron before him. It was only a tenth as large as this one.

    Whose is this? Fengyuzi immediately asks the people around.

    Xiao Yu accidentally found this on Mount Dong Lan. Lian Yan immediately replies. Fengyuzi turns to Qin Yu, his heart full of disbelief. He once spent a good few years searching in the Immense Wilderness but could only find ordinary ores.

    He has always thought that no place on the Qian Long continent other than the Wilderness has an ore of this caliber.

    Good, Ill forge this crystal. Xiao Yu, as the owner of this crystal, you are to decide what to do with it. So follow me. Fengyuzi makes a wave of his hand. A vigorous stream of energy instantly covers the flaming red crystal. The 2000 jin crystal thus flies up.

    Yes! Even though Qin Yu is doubtful, he still follows Fengyuzi.

    In the princely mansion, Fengyuzi has some specialized secret rooms. Without his permission, even East Vaquishing Prince Qin De cannot enter these rooms. At present, Fengyuzi takes Qin Yu into a secret room which is specifically used for forging holy objects.
