Chapter 8: Desire to Become Strong


As the delicious soup entered his stomach, Xiao s.h.i.+’s body felt warm. At this moment, there was a large bowl of meat soup in front of him. Inside was a stewed Five-Colored Spirit Tail Sparrow.

“It’s a pity that the taste is so-so.” Xiao s.h.i.+ shook his head.

It felt very different from the food that dropped from the kills. However, he also knew that the Five-Colored Spirit Tail Sparrow could mainly strengthen one’s body. The taste was not the key.

Xiao s.h.i.+ ate in big mouthfuls. Not only did he finish all the meat, he even chewed and swallowed the bones. He was in urgent need of improvement and did not want to waste it at all.

Although the Potential Pill had already made his apt.i.tude different from before, his apt.i.tude mainly determined the speed of his cultivation and breakthrough.

The strengthening of the physical body still required years of acc.u.mulation.

Fortunately, the dozens of Heavenly Cycles every day made his body stronger and stronger. He was not far from Martial Entry-Level Five.

Xiao s.h.i.+ made a rough judgment.

Under normal circ.u.mstances, he would reach the limit of Martial Entry-Level Four in about a week. Now that he had the Five-Colored Spirit Tail Sparrow, he could save time.

Not long after he finished the big bowl of meat soup, Xiao s.h.i.+ felt a warm current gus.h.i.+ng out from his heart and flowing throughout his body. It felt as if his entire body was soaking in a hot spring. It was extremely comfortable.

Under the flow of this heat, his physical body was strengthening at a visible speed. In an instant, he reached the limit of Martial Entry-Level Four.

“This kind of improvement… No wonder the Five-Colored Spirit Tail Sparrow is so expensive!”

Xiao s.h.i.+’s eyes were filled with excitement. He immediately began the fifth cycle. His astonis.h.i.+ng apt.i.tude allowed him to completely not feel any difficulty or obstruction in the circulation of the fifth cycle.

He easily completed the fifth circulation.

He had broken through in one go and officially stepped into Martial Entry-Level Five!

The difference between each stage of the Martial Entry-Level was mainly in the strength of the body. Now, Xiao s.h.i.+ could clearly feel the difference between his physical body and that of Martial Entry-Level Four.

Most importantly, at Martial Entry-Level Five, he had met the requirements for body tempering and could begin body tempering!

However, considering that using the Flame Phoenix Fruit to temper his body would have a certain degree of danger, the stronger his body was, the less dangerous it would be. Xiao s.h.i.+ felt that he could take a break first.

After all, he had just met the requirements for body tempering, so it was relatively dangerous.

It was best to continue strengthening his body and reduce the danger before tempering his body. That would be much safer.

“No hurry!”

To Xiao s.h.i.+, who had always prioritized safety, he did not want to take any risks. Therefore, in the following half a month, he spent most of his time on the Heavenly Cycles to continuously strengthen his body.

Besides, the killing of the Piebald Worms did not stop either. Now, other than the room he lived in being filled with many items, the room he rented was also getting more and more items.

As for contribution points, after he got rid of the Five-Colored Spirit Tail Sparrow’s feathers and blood, he had already acc.u.mulated five hundred points.

This contribution point was already higher than many outer sect disciples who often went out to carry out missions.

Just like that, he cultivated for more than half a month.

Xiao s.h.i.+’s physical body was much stronger than half a month ago. The danger of body tempering was greatly reduced. He made a preliminary judgment. He felt that this was the right time to temper his body.

Therefore, he decisively took out the Flame Phoenix Fruit and swallowed it without hesitation.

As the Flame Phoenix Fruit entered his stomach, a scorching heat immediately rose from Xiao s.h.i.+’s lower abdomen and spread throughout his entire body, making him feel as if his entire body was being burned by flames.

This feeling was very painful.

Every part of his body was in intense pain. Every piece of his flesh, every bone, and every meridian was burned by the flames. Although this kind of burn was strengthening and polis.h.i.+ng, the process was extremely painful.

It was a huge test of one’s will.

Xiao s.h.i.+’s body trembled and his expression was ferocious. From time to time, he would let out low roars of pain. He could feel that the flames in his body did not weaken with time. Instead, they became stronger and fiercer.

Under such continuous burning, his flesh, blood, and bones continued to tighten, and his meridians became more and more resilient. From the inside to the outside, they were rapidly improving in all aspects.

However, the pain was still intense. It had already reached a level that ordinary people could not tolerate.

This was a process that every body tempering cultivator had to go through.

Without a tenacious and powerful will, even if one had heavenly treasures, it would be difficult to persist in completing the body tempering.

As the flames in his body burned, Xiao s.h.i.+’s body lost a lot of weight at a speed visible to the naked eye. He was even a few centimeters shorter than before.

The condensation of his flesh, blood, and bones made his body smaller than before.

Even so, his body was much stronger than before. Every piece of flesh and blood contained an astonis.h.i.+ng surge of power. As time pa.s.sed, the body tempering quickly reached the final stage.

The flames burning in his body began to fuse into his flesh and bones. In the end, a flame mark formed between his eyebrows.

This was the mark of a successful body tempering!

However, Xiao s.h.i.+ chose to hide the symbol in his skin to prevent it from being exposed. At this stage, he could not let others know that he had completed his body tempering. After all, he could not explain the natural treasures needed for body tempering.

Xiao s.h.i.+ carefully sensed his body after body tempering. He realized that his physical strength had already reached the limit of Martial Entry-Level Five, and he could break through to Martial Entry-Level Six!

It directly rose to another level!

This made him very excited.

Originally, with his cultivation speed, he could only cultivate to Martial Entry-Level Six at most before he became a night patroller. But now, with the improvement after body tempering, he had a chance to break through to the seventh stage of the Martial Entry-Level!

Not only that, the success of body tempering also caused his body to have no limits to a certain extent. Even if he cultivated to the ninth stage of the Martial Entry-Level, he could still continue to strengthen his body.

“Not a bad experience!” Xiao s.h.i.+ clenched his fists excitedly. He did not stop for long. After successfully tempering his body, he immediately began the sixth cycle.

He wanted to break through from Martial Entry-Level Five to Martial Entry-Level Six.

Usually, before the outer sect disciples of the Red Tiger Sect became night patrollers, their cultivation was between Martial Entry-Level Two and Level Five.

Currently, Xiao s.h.i.+ has already surpa.s.sed most people. At the same time, the benefits of body tempering also made him look forward to the future body tempering.

“As long as a suitable natural treasure drops, I can continue to temper my body!”

Although the process of body tempering was very painful, the improvement brought about by body tempering was much faster than ordinary cultivation. It could be said to be the fastest way to increase his strength.

However, now that there were no Martial Entry-Level creatures to kill, it was very difficult to drop Martial-Level items.

Xiao s.h.i.+ could only place his hopes on the Piebald Worm. He continued to capture and kill Piebald Worms every day.

More than ten days pa.s.sed like this.

On this day, Xiao s.h.i.+ caught a bag of piebald worms as usual. However, on the way back, he heard bad news.

Fu Chen was dead!

It was suspected that he had encountered an evil spirit while carrying out a mission and was killed by it.

Xiao s.h.i.+’s heart sank.

Fu Chen had a good relations.h.i.+p with him.

Previously, when he asked him to carry out a mission with him, Xiao s.h.i.+ had specially instructed him to be more careful. He did not expect that the goodbye at that time would actually become a farewell.

Xiao s.h.i.+ sighed.

This was also the reason why he insisted on not going out to carry out missions. This world was too dangerous.

Evil spirits, natural disasters, wars, bandits…

Danger was everywhere!

Not to mention Martial Entry-Level martial artists, even Qi Martial Realm martial artists could not guarantee that they could escape unscathed in the face of these dangers.

Fu Chen’s death made Xiao s.h.i.+ feel very uncomfortable. Even though he knew that this was the norm in this world. Every day, many martial artists like Fu Chen would die outside. However, Fu Chen was still his first friend in this world.

Xiao s.h.i.+ felt sad. At the same time, his desire for strength grew stronger.

He knew that soon after becoming a night patroller, he would also face these dangers. If he wanted to survive, he had to have enough ability to protect himself.

“I have to become stronger!” Xiao s.h.i.+ clenched his fists.

There was no longer any joy or satisfaction after successfully tempering his body. There was only the desire for strength and the urgency to become stronger. He knew that he did not have much time left.

Other than killing Piebald Worms every day, the rest of the time was spent on the Heavenly Cycle.

A month later.

Xiao s.h.i.+ had already killed thousands of Piebald Worms! After killing so many Piebald Worms in a row, a Martial Entry-Level item finally dropped.

[Name: Inventory Bag]

[Type: Storage]

[Grade: Martial Entry-Level]

[Introduction: It has a large s.p.a.ce and can accommodate more items.]

[Remark: You don’t have to worry about having nowhere to store your items anymore.]

Although it was not an item to increase one’s strength, the storage bag was very useful to Xiao s.h.i.+. As the number of items increased, the things inside were almost unable to fit in, even though he had rented a room.

Moreover, the most troublesome thing was that when he went to be a night patroller, it would be very difficult to take away so many things.

Now that he had a storage bag, he did not have to worry about having too many items. After all, the s.p.a.ce inside this Martial Entry-Level storage bag was as big as a football field.

It was completely enough to accommodate these items.

Time flew by, three months pa.s.sed in a flash.

In the Red Tiger Sect’s square, many outer sect disciples were gathered. They were about to head to the Golden Cloud City under the arrangements of the sect to begin their night patrolling careers.
