Chapter 64: Arriving At The Destination
Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
As soon as they had got rid of the crisis with the Blast Sparrows, the sky darkened and the spaceship was brightly-lit.
During this hour, most of the passengers were having fun on the deck or on the entertainment floor.
In the bar, the people discussed the incident in which Li Yanxing had attacked the monsters just now. Those who did not know his identity knew his name very well now.
It was very noisy outside on each deck but Lin Huang had never left his room.
In the living room, he was practicing the sword technique he witnessed Li Yanxing performing against the Black Sparrow earlier. In fact, it took him more than an hour to imitate Li Yanxing's skill. However, he was not rewarded with any skill pieces.
It was not because of the level of Li Yanxing's technique was higher than that of Great Sword Scripture. It was due to the fact that he had only performed the technique once and Lin Huang had only watched it once as well. Unlike the Great Sword Scripture part 1, Scarface had practiced the same technique three times at each practice session and Lin Huang secretly watched it for a few days. He was given a very good reference standard with old Scarface. In addition, with the help of the calming tea, he could easily master the essence of the sword technique.
Besides, from his previous experience of obtaining The Great Sword Scripture pieces, he understood that being rewarded skill pieces did not depend on the similarity of movement. The most important part was he had to master the essence of the sword technique.
As long as he could master the essence of the technique, he would have a higher probability of being rewarded the skill pieces.
Lin Huang had brandished his sword for the 1,000th time. However, still, he could not imitate the technique.
He did not give up. He practiced again and again by recalling the scene when Li Yanxing slashed his sword.
The sky got darker as time passed. The liveliness of the spaceship remained the same. Despite there being few people on deck, they all joined the entertainment events on the first floor.
The bar was no longer as quiet as before and it played rock music into the night. It was so crowded and the people were dancing all around. After dancing for a while, some of the men had boners in their pants and immediately pulled the women with them to small rooms behind the bar. The moaning sounds of the woman and the heavy breathing sound of the man coming from the small rooms could be heard but the sounds were covered by the music played in the bar.
If Lin Huang were here, his doubts regarding the odd wine names would probably start making sense.
At midnight, the spaceship was still as lively as it was. However, Lin Huang had been practicing the technique for more than five hours in his room. Still, nothing was rewarded.
He was drenched in sweat. He stopped, exhausted.
"It's already 12 o'clock. I should sleep earlier tonight and wake up early tomorrow to practice," Lin Huang thought as he looked at the clock and kept his sword back in his storage space.
The level of the set of sword technique was Rare or even higher. If he were rewarded the complete set of skill pieces, he would gain another powerful sword combat skill. Even if the Rare sword skill had only one technique, which was the one that he saw, it would still be a great benefit to him.
He went to the toilet and had a bath. It was 12.40am and Lin Huang was lying in bed. In just a short while, he fell asleep.
At seven o'clock the next morning, Lin Huang woke up and went to the first floor for breakfast. After having his breakfast, he went back to his room and continued practicing the technique.
The Demonic Crystal Spaceship would normally take 28 hours to travel from foothold No.7C87 to foothold No.7C82. However, considering the time taken in which the spaceship stopped between footholds, it took approximately 29 hours to arrive.
Lin Huang got on board the spaceship the day before at nine o'clock in the morning. He estimated that the spaceship would arrive around one o'clock in the afternoon. He had approximately six hours to practice the sword technique.
The middle part of Lin Huang's living room had been emptied. All of the tables, chairs and other furniture were pushed against the wall or to the edge of the living room.
He began to practice with his sword. He did the same movement repeatedly barefooted in the middle of the living room, not feeling tired at all.
"This is wrong. Let's do it again! No, it's still wrong. Try again"
From around eight o'clock in the morning until 11 o'clock, Lin Huang could not recall how many times he had practiced. However, each time when he brandished with his sword, he would imagine a scene where he would compare his technique with the one performed by Li Yanxing, figuring out what he had missed out.
All of a sudden, his technique of wielding the sword shadowed Li Yanxing's movement as he had imagined. Lin Huang was shocked and soon, he heard a notification jingle coming from Xiao Hei.
"Congratulations, you have gained a Skill Card "Thunder Sword" pieces x1"
Lin Huang was stunned as he saw the notification. He asked, "Xiao Hei, if I was to collect and combine the "Thunder Sword" pieces into a Skill Card, will I be rewarded with only one skill or a whole set of skill technique?"
"You'll be rewarded a whole set of skill technique if you have collected a complete set of skill pieces," Xiao Hei replied.
Xiao Hei's answer was beyond Lin Huang's expectation.
"Are you sure? If so, why couldn't I obtain more skill pieces after I was rewarded with "The Great Sword Scripture part 1" Skill Card? According to what you said, I should be able to obtain pieces of "The Great Sword Scripture part 2" with part 1 skill that I have obtained." Lin Huang asked in doubt.
"This was because of "The Great Sword Scripture" had two different rarities for part 1 and part 2. You would not be able to master part 2 technique since its rarity is relatively higher. If they had the same rarity, you would be able to master it with 'The Great Sword Scripture part 1'. Conversely, if you were rewarded with a technique of higher rarity such as "The Great Sword Scripture part 2", similarly, you would be able to derive 'The Great Sword Scripture Part 1'. In short, one could derive a new technique with an existing technique of higher rarity or the same level of rarity. However, one would not be able to derive a new technique if its existing technique had a lower rarity," Xiao Hei explained.
After listening to Xiao Hei's detailed explanation, Lin Huang then realized that there was a rule like that with such skills. However, Lin Huang felt happy as his doubts were cleared.
This indicated that in most of the combat skills, he would only need to memorize a small part of the technique and practice it repeatedly. Eventually, he would be able to collect a complete set of Skill Card after he could grasp the essence of the technique, as long as the skill did not have skills of different rarities.
Lin Huang practiced even harder as he knew about this.
However, after an hour, he did not feel what he felt just now. He had yet to obtain the second skill piece. Lin Huang did not feel anxious about it, though. It was 12 o'clock in the afternoon now. In less than an hour, they would be getting off the spaceship.
He kept his sword and placed the furniture in its initial position. He took a bath and changed his clothes.
He tidied up the room, checked and made sure that he did not leave any belongings there and left the room. Going down the floating stairs, he headed towards the deck beside the ship's entrance. He could see that the spaceship was landing.
In just a few minutes, the spaceship landed at foothold No.7C82. Lin Huang scanned his ticket at the exit and the door automatically opened. Lin Huang stepped out of the spaceship
