Revolt against the Heavens – Chapter 73: Guarding the Ten Thousand Directions

Chapter 73: Guarding the Ten Thousand Directions

Cao Yun asked Huang Cixi to send a message to the Dragon's Fire Faction requesting the materials needed for the Small Moon Closing pill. He was ready to exchange up to two True Essence Low-Level Qi Gathering pills for them, but would rather do so for only one. The more he could hide his real abilities, the better, especially with potential demonic cultivators going after him.

rIn the evening, he kept playing with Mei Ying before focusing on his mind cultivation. Once again, he had to balance his progress with agitating the Drop of Wrath. Every repetition, the Drop of Wrath tried to attack the Po character as though fire trying to melt down metal. Every one of his attempts gave Cao Yun the opportunity to strengthen his mental defense against the Drop of Wrath. Paradoxically, it was allowing him to better control it by being so violent. But the Drop of Wrath had no intelligence, it seemingly acted on instinct alone. So even though it was very dangerous and powerful, it wasn't that much of a threat to Cao Yun, as long as his mind stayed clear.

rHe also advanced his Qi cultivation and was happy to notice that he was absorbing even more Qi from the small spirit stones. Very soon, he would even be able to consume the entirety of a small spirit stone in a couple of days. All this Qi was sent toward his Lower Dantian. Then he circulated it according to the 'Cultivation of Wrath' to open up his last five meridians.

rAfter all that, he kept some time to train on 'Locking the Seven'. He discovered that the Po character was very useful as it made his Qi control a bit easier. The goal of the technique was to slow the heart down to one or two beats by minute. This was the Small Success, and the practitioner's heart would be around fifty times slower than normal. The True Success was one or two beats by hour. As it turned out, slowing the heart with this technique was very easy. The problem was keeping your body functioning thanks to your Qi. You had to control the flow of Qi to all your organs, and even move the blood yourself.

rRight now, Cao Yun was able to slow down to twenty beats by minute without any problem. He stayed in this state for more than three hours while circulating his Qi accordingly.


rIn the Coiling Silk Faction residence, Lu Meihan was talking with the man in black and purple.
