Revolt against the Heavens – Chapter 22: Entering the Lunar marsh

Chapter 22: Entering the Lunar marsh

As the Huang family was mourning, Gu Lin, the former head of the Auction Hall was standing over the corpse of Gu Ouyang. The servant who had brought back Huang Longwei's corpse had also taken the other four with her.

He knew something like that was going to happen when he had failed to find his grandson a few days back. This idiot had attacked Chen Guo, but the boy had finished the job this time.

When he was younger, Gu Lin had lost his entire family, brutally murdered. The only one he had left was now lying with his head separated from his body. Gu Lin did not know how to react at all. Qi began to gush out of him. As a late 9th-grade Mortal, he was at the limit of being a Mortal Warrior. Even though he could not really control it, his Qi could sometimes exit his body.

This day, he felt like he had nothing more to lose in this life. His family was gone, his status was gone. The last thing that mattered was to send his grandson's murderer to join him in death. Gu Lin still had some hope of achieving something with his life. Even though he was 82, his cultivation could allow him to live at least until 300 years old. His cultivation talent was mediocre and he spent more time managing the auction hall and his grandson than training. But through these activities, he had the possibility of doing something that could matter. All this was now gone.

Right now, he decided to give it his all. He consumed many pills to forcefully increase his cultivation. To become a Mortal Warrior, he had to open specific points on his palms and the soles of his feet. Through the Myriad Cherry Blossom Hall, he was able to obtain medicines designed for that. The opening would not be very clean, but the points would be open nonetheless.

When he finally directed the medicinal essence to these points, he felt as if a dam had just broken down. All of his Qi could now willingly leave his body and be used outside. He launched a palm strike and a rock many meters away from him was reduced to dust.

Satisfied with this new-found power, he went back to his grandson's body.
