Chapter 619: Leaving for Longevity Valley
As the boundless amount of energy flowed into Jian Chens body for him to refine into Chaotic Force, the amount of Chaotic force in his body grew bigger and bigger. As a result, the chaotic core he had formed in his dantian had slowly increased in size as well from a small soybean to a small fingernail size.
Following the creation of the chaotic core, Jian Chen felt his body be filled with an inexhaustible amount of energy. With a thought, he could easily control the Chaotic Force in his dantian to use as he pleased. He was no longer as powerless as he was before when he lost his Saint Force.
Oooh! Big brother, youre amazing! Youre absorbing energy so fast! Even faster than Little Spirit! And even with so much energy, big brother doesnt feel ill at all, super amazing! Little Spirit spoke as she observed how Jian Chen was doing with a look of surprise.
It had been unknown just how much time had transpired, but the core that was growing within Jian Chens body had only grown bigger and bigger. It was by now already the size of his thumb and was still accumulating energy to a degree where Jian Chen had previously thought to be impossible.
Right now, Jian Chen didnt even know just how much energy he had absorbed and processed. By now, the previously boundless amount of energy in Mercenary City had started to thin out to a considerable degree.
Oh! Big brother, youve already absorbed fifty thousand years worth of energy Little Spirit accumulated. When will you be done, soon enough, all the energy Little Spirit accumulated will be gone. Seeing the energy lessen, Little Spirit couldnt help but speak with a slightly pained look.
But Jian Chen had been completely entranced in his meditative mind state and had not heard Little Spirit. He knew that since Little Spirit was protecting this place, there would be no dangers here at all so he could focus completely on refining the energy. As thus, his guard was at its lowest point.
With the assistance of the sword spirits, a dreadful amount of energy was being absorbed at a constant fast rate. An unknown amount of time had gone on before the core in his dantian had grown to the size of an egg now. And the energy underneath Mercenary City was fewer than before.
As Jian Chen was basking in this completely euphoric feeling of his power being increased, the flow of energy into his body was suddenly stopped. Startled by this change in events, Jian Chen awoke from his meditative state.
As soon as he opened his eyes, Jian Chen could see the still transparent figure of Little Spirit. But on her face was a look of misery as she wailed.
Little Spirit, what happened? He asked in confusion.
Big brother, you cant absorb any more energy! Youve already absorbed almost all of the energy Little Spirit saved up for a hundred thousand years. If this goes on, then the seal wont hold any more! Little Spirited spoke pleadingly.
Seal? What seal? Jian Chen started. He had been shocked as he didnt think that to reach the Minor Achievement realm with the Chaotic Body, he would have absorbed a hundred thousand years worth of energy that Little Spirit stored up. If not for her, it would have taken an extremely long amount of time to reach the Minor Achievement realm by himself.
That was because a single strand of Chaotic Force was refined from a sea of vital energy of the world. It was tantamount to the strength of a single Saint Ruler.
Oops! Little Spirit clasped her mouth shut with both hands before shaking her head repeatedly. What seal! Big brother, you heard wrong!
Little Spirit, your big brother has exceptional hearing. You just said that if too much energy was absorbed, then the seal wouldnt be able to hold anymore. Little Spirit, what seal is this? Jian Chen gave a smile to her, but in his mind, he was extremely skeptical. Just how many secrets did Mercenary City have. Was there always a seal? What did this seal do?
Its nothing! Big brother, you misheard! Little Spirit didnt say anything! Little Spirit waved her hands while she tried to persuade him frantically.
Seeing Little Spirit act like this, Jian Chen couldnt find it in himself to ask anymore. Although he really wanted to know just what this seal did, seeing Little Spirit guard this secret so much caused him to think that he would be causing trouble for her if he persisted to ask.
It was all because of Little Spirits contributions that he was able to reach the Minor Achievement realm so quickly. As thus, he did not wish to do anything that would cause her difficulties.
Alright, Little Spirit. Your big brother heard wrongly just now. I dont know what this seal youre talking about is. Jian Chen smiled warmly. But still, he had looked around the place curiously. He had wanted to see something at the very least, but it was still pitch-dark. Even with the assistance of the glow from the azure and violet sword spirits, he was hardly able to see a short distance away. Everything was a blurry mess and nothing could be seen.
Beaming with joy, Little Spirit spoke afterwards, Big brother, Little Spirit can see that youve grown extremely strong now! You should be able to handle that baddy now! Let Little Spirit take you out of here then.
As she spoke, a barrier had already enveloped Jian Chens body and carried him back to his original room in the inn.
As soon as Jian Chen reappeared in the room, the tiger cub had jumped onto his shoulder in delight. Using its short paws, the cub wrapped itself around his neck and let out a slow mournful purr.
Petting the cub on its head and speaking several comforting words to it, Jian Chen spoke to the seemingly empty room. Little Spirit, just how long was I underneath the city for?
Just about fifteen days, big brother. Little Spirit spoke as she materialized in front of him.
Another month has gone by without my knowing. I didnt even feel two hours go by even. Jian Chen muttered in shock. But even with that said, his eyes suddenly widened in shock as he looked down at his entirely naked body. His clothes had long since been ruined from the tremendous amount of energy that had flowed past it.
Quickly putting on a new set of clothes, Jian Chen then inspected his body to see just how big of a difference the Chaotic Force had made.
After reaching the Minor Achievement realm, Jian Chen didnt feel any change in his physique. But his stature had clearly grown even more firm than before. The biggest change was the fact that his body contained even more power than before. This power was so dreadfully big that he felt as if a single punch could destroy a mountain.
Clenching his fist tightly, Jian Chen let a careless thrust forward with it. As the fist passed through the air, the space around it distorted slightly. The power in this one fist was enough to cause more stress on the space than what it could even handle. It was something that a Heaven Saint Master could only show after using a Heaven Tier Battle Skill, but he was able to replicate it with a single punch.
Wow! Big brothers amazing! If big brother meets that baddy again, then there wont be any more need for fear! Little Spirit spoke up excitedly.
Master, the strength of the Chaotic Body is far stronger than what you can believe. Youve reached the realm of Minor Achievement so the Chaotic Force is now distributed evenly through your body. Even if a Saint Ruler were to strike you, the amount of damage shouldnt be all that bad. Ziying spoke into his mind.
At Ziyings words, Jian CHen had felt extremely elated.
Saint Ruler of the Jiede clan. I, Jian Chen, swear to find you. And the Saint Ruler of the Sect of Dragon and Tiger, wash your neck and wait for me! Jian Chen smiled coldly. Now that he was at the realm of Minor Achievement, he had finally reached a level where fighting a Saint Ruler was possible. There was no longer any need to fear a Saint Ruler.
Afterwards, Jian Chen and Little Spirit said their farewells before Jian Chen brought the tiger cub with him out the room.
Sire Jian Chen.
Jian Chen, my friend.
As soon as Jian Chen went downstairs, a multitude of people came forward to greet him. Each one of them wished to pull Jian Chen into their group so that a good relationship could be formed between them.
Because of his actions in Mercenary City, practically every family and household had thought that Jian Chen had the support of a very powerful patron. Combined with his talents, he was someone that people would hold no expense to get to know. A connection with him would serve beautifully for them.
After wasting some time dealing with the crowd, Jian Chen gave a small smile and a few words before leaving with Hu Xiaotian away from the inn.
Soon enough, Jian Chen had left the city and had just overstepped the boundary of the barrier.
Big brother, you cant lie to Little Spirit! You have to come back within three years to see Little Spirit, or else Little Spirit will get angry! Little Spirit floated a meter high into the air as she sent off Jian Chen with a look of sadness. She was very unwilling to part with Jian Chen.
Little Spirit. Be at ease, as long as nothing major happens, your big brother will come back to see you. Jian Chen guaranteed again for the third time before stepping away into a blur. With his speed, he shot off towards the direction of Cross Mountains in no time at all.
The Illusionary Step was a Heaven Tier Battle Skill that Jian Chen had once used. It held no offensive power and only served to make one even faster than before. With that, Jian Chen had been able to escape the pursuit of a Heaven Saint Master even as an Earth Saint Master. But after the loss of his Saint Force, he had been unable to use the Illusionary Step. Though, with the Chaotic Force now being used instead of Saint Force, he could use the Illusionary Step once again.
Only prairies were around Mercenary City, but Jian Chen could be seen blurring past the prairies at tremendous speeds. Perhaps it was because of his Illusionary Step, but his speed now was far faster than what the power of flight could give him.
