Revolt against the Heavens – Chapter 64: First month in the Wubei Sect

Chapter 64: First month in the Wubei Sect

Cao Yun wanted to buy some ingredients but reducing his points just before the end of the month would hurt his alloted resources. So he waited for a few days.

rNow that the conflict was over, he let Zhi Yin handle the negotiations. Wen Zhu even lowered their commission to 25% to compensate the harm done. Zhi Yin seemed pretty plain as she never showed any emotion. It was very hard to know what she was thinking. Even Ling Hui who idolized her could not figure it out. But she had a lot of ambitions. And thanks to Cao Yun, she now had gained a lot.

rAfter his interview with her, Wen Zhu was devastated. He would need some time to repair the damage. The reputation of the Dragon's Fire Faction was pretty low right now, and they had lost the most promising alchemist in the kingdom. On the other hand, they had gained a stable relationship with her and Cao Yun through this contract. Wen Zhu completely discarded the idea of recruiting Cao Yun. As long as they worked together, it wasn't so bad. Cao Yun had no desire to make alchemy his main occupation so he was no threat to their business as he even used them to sell his pills.

rOn the other hand, the two main factions who mostly focused on fighting did not like the new situation.

rChan Weifeng from the Red Cliff Faction was slowly worried. He was the faction leader of the greatest faction and yet he was worried by a first-year. He remembered how his faction had offended him over and over again because of some arrogant idiots. Deep down, he still hoped to gain Cao Yun to his faction, but it seemed to become more and more difficult. Now that his faction had strong ties with the Dragon's Fire Faction, he would be stupid to leave like that. Right now, he was certainly the most important member of the Heavenly Swallow Faction so he would get a better treatment there than with them.

rChan Weifeng did not want trouble with Cao Yun as he felt it was really unwise, either inside or later outside the sect. But on the other hand, if his sect grew too big too fast, he would also have a problem. What a conundrum!


rCao Yun was using his last day before the final training with Chief Instructor Peng to advance the cultivation he could not before.

rHe began by his Qi cultivation. His mind had worked so hard the last few days that controlling the flow of Qi was now as easy as breathing. In a matter of twenty minutes, he opened his sixth meridian, the Spleen Meridian. After this first month, he was halfway through in his 5th-grade Mortal stage. If he could keep up with this speed, in two more months, he would break through into the 6th-grade Mortal stage.

rHe was wondering whether or not he should use pills. They could speed up the process but he was already pretty fast and the toxins worried him a little. If he could better grasp the toxins minimization principle, that would be better. For now, he would wait. If his cultivation began to slow down, it could be a solution.

rFinally he could use the pill he had gone to such lengths to get, the Praying Demon Pill. It was a 1-star Human rank pill, very beneficial to the mind with a Fire element to it. This should prove really beneficial for his mind cultivation which was getting a bit too slow. Cao Yun had seen how useful it could be, so he wanted it to advance as soon as possible.

rAnd even if the threat of the Drop of Wrath had not appeared in a long time, he still saw it every time he got into his sea of consciousness. Every day, he was reminded that this time bomb was in him.

rCao Yun was ready for a very strong effect. This pill was 1-star Human rank, it was a totally different thing compared to the Frozen Heart pill. As soon as he took it in hand, he felt his mind getting heated. Even the Drop of Wrath seemed to react a little. Preparing his mind, he circulated his Yi, Zhi and Shen at their utmost and gulped down the pill.

rHe felt a fire rising in his stomach. It flowed down toward his belly and went all the way down to his coccyx. Afterwards, this fiery energy went back up through his spine. Even the skin of his back was hot. If he had taken off his clothes, his skin would have been red. Finally, the energy shot up in his head.

rWaves erupted in his sea of consciousness as his mind was getting excited. This pill could boost one's mind but it was very potent and with a lack control, it could even prove harmful. Of course, Cao Yun had a great control over his mind. He easily calmed down and condensed the medicinal essence into a fiery ball. It almost looked like there was a sun in his sea of consciousness.

rThe Drop of Wrath was reacting to the medicinal essence and tried to move closer to this fake sun. Fortunately, Cao Yun used his three characters of 'Sealing the Seven Demons in the Nine Peaks' to trap it. After a first unsuccessful attempt, the Drop of Wrath calmed back down.

rFocusing his mind, Cao Yun began to draw the Shen character with the medicinal effect of the pill infused in it. The character that appeared in his mind was not only red, but it was literally written in flames. In only one night, he broke through his bottleneck. He went all the way toward True Success, 64 repetitions. Along the next month, the medicinal energy would get thinner and thinner but he should be able to go all the way to Perfection.

rWhen he stopped cultivating, the Shen character in his sea of consciousness seemed to be surrounded by an extreme heat. The Drop of Wrath tried to put some distance between itself and the character. On the other hand, Yi and Zhi seemed to be even more attracted to it. These three characters were like planets orbiting around the Drop of Wrath, prisoner between them.


rThe next day was the group training with Chief Instructor Peng.

rThe day after, Cao Yun went back to the alchemy pavilion to thank his instructor.
