Chapter 29: New Spear
Retracting his hands, Ye Shang was very happy. The power of the Heaven Obscuring Palm was quite formidable while others could hardly compete with it without weapons.
However, Ye Shang also felt the shortcomings as he noticed his Qi had somewhat dispersed as he shattered the bamboo tree. When the Qi returned to his Dantian, only half of the Qi was left, which was unable to support him in using the technique again.
Ye Shang wasn’t satisfied with the result. Thinking about it, Ye Shang stretched out his left hand and urged the Internal Energy to flow to his left hand, he then cultivated the Internal Energy according to the route mentioned in the Heaven Obscuring Palm.
A red energy whirlpool circulated around his palm, and some inconspicuous amount of silver stars were vaguely visible inside the whirlpool.
After practicing for a while, Ye Shang stood up as he understood that it was possible to cultivate the Heaven Obscuring Palm with only the Internal Energy in his body, but he wasn’t able to accomplish it now since he had only achieved the 3rd Level of Blood Quenching Realm of the Myriad Dao Treasured Tome and the Internal Energy in his body was not sufficient enough to support the combat skill.
Although the effect was not obvious, Ye Shang was still very happy, after all, he found out that he could carry out the Heaven Obscuring Palm technique as long as the Internal Energy in his body increased.
When Ye Shang stopped practicing, Tian Yu came back with a green sheep.
Leaving the green sheep, Tian Yu came to the side of Ye Shang and rubbed its feathers against him, so Ye Shang started caressing its feathers.
Although the feathers of Tian Yu were as bright as white silk, it still liked Ye Shang to comb its feathers.
While Ye Shang was cleaning the feathers, the two servants came, bringing good wine and tea again.
“Thank you.” Although they were servants, Ye Shang was still very polite towards them.
“Master Ye is too polite, this is what we are meant to do. We need to roast the sheep now, please excuse us Master Ye.” The two servants went to work after bowing to Ye Shang.
What they didn’t know was that there was someone else hiding around, the strange fellow followed the servants, and entered the woods while maintaining some distance.
The old man in the green gown was sizing Ye Shang up since he was one of the enforcing elders of Taixuan Peak who had received the order to protect Ye Shang.
Although he couldn’t understand the leader’s order, he still was bound to obey his commands.
After feeding Tian Yu, Ye Shang went back to the bamboo house to cultivate, since the Heaven Obscuring Palm and Chasing Wind Spear Technique required improving his cultivation foundation, which made Ye Shang extremely eager to drench his hands with this new techniques.
As for the use of resources, Ye Shang didn’t even bother to save them. On the way to the Medicine Valley, he understood that he wouldn’t have to worry about the lack of resources as long as he enhanced his cultivation base.
Ye Shang took the Condensation Pill and a Blood Elixir, then began cultivating the Sheng Ding Scripture and the Myriad Dao Treasured Tome, meanwhile the old man in the green robe was meditating on a stout branch of an old tree.
After cultivating for another night, Ye Shang went out to the yard to practice the Heaven Obscuring Palm since he could only stretch his body with this as he didn’t have the black iron spear with him.
Seeing Ye Shang slap on the bamboo and smash it, the old man was stunned as he certainly knew what Ye Shang was training in, and that was the main combat skill of the peak leader Liu Yangyu.
At this moment, he finally understood why he had received the order to protect this little guy who was only at Level 5 of Qi-Refining stage, as no one had managed to learn this Second-Rank combat skill at Qi-Refining stage Level 5 in the Medicine Valley.
After practicing the Heaven Obscuring Palm with his Qi, Ye Shang went to practice it using his Internal Energy.
At the end of his cultivation, Tian Yu also came back and it had got a big guy this time, a black python as thick as a human waist.
The black python was still alive, but Tian Yu had bit its neck, its claws grasped the body of the python, and it directly landed on the yard.
Before landing on the yard, Tian Yu screamed towards Ye Shang. The black python took this opportunity to escape extremely fast, which irritated Tian Yu and made it angry, as it suddenly jumped and attacked its head, killing the Second-Rank black python with one blow.
“Good, you sure can now catch some nice prey. Remember not to provoke stronger ones in the future.” Ye Shang stepped forward and kicked off the body of the black python which weighed more than 300 pounds.
The old man in the green robe gasped seeing the scene before him.
Yesterday he had seen Tian Yu and considered it as an ordinary bird since he stayed a little far away and didn’t pay much attention to it, but today he clearly saw and found out that Tian Yu, was a Second-Rank demon, and was much stronger than other Second-Rank demons.
As for Ye Shang, he could kick off the body weighing more than 300 pounds several meters away with just a casual kick, he also had considerable strength. The old man finally understood why he could practice the Heaven Obscuring Palm despite being only at Qi-Refining Stage Level 5.
Seeing Ye Shang kicking the black python off, Tian Yu screamed, landed next to the black python, cut its belly with its beak, and took out a green gallbladder. Then it returned in front of Ye Shang and stretched its beak forward.
“You want to give this to me? No need, I know the snake gallbladder is good, but you can eat it!” Ye Shang patted Tian Yu’s head and said with a smile.
Thinking about it, Tian Yu swallowed the gallbladder of the black python.
Ye Shang cleaned Tian Yu, and when they came back, the two servants were already there to deal with the black python and clean up the house.
This time, Ye Shang did not ask them to roast the black python as he found a stone pot and stewed a piece of python.
The snake soup was very beneficial to the body as Grandpa Gu often cooked it in Zhuyuan Village.
Under Ye Shang’s guidance, the servants became very good at roasting the rest of it, the cooked black python meat looked very delicious.
The snake soup also smelled really good, even the old man in the green robe wished to try it, but Gong Xuan had ordered him to protect Ye Shang secretly, so he couldn’t expose his presence.
Ye Shang had the meat and the wine with the two servants.
After the servants left, Ye Shang took some medicinal resources and began to cultivate. He was improving very quickly, as he was almost at Qi-Refining Stage Level 6 now.
Cultivating while taking the Blood Elixirs, he had great progress in cultivating the Myriad Dao Treasured Tome as well, it didn’t seem like it would take that long to before he reached Level 4 of Blood Quenching Realm.
In the next 2 days, he cultivated quietly as no one came to disturb him, including Chu Ning and Tang Tian.
What he didn’t know was that Tang Tian and Chu Ning were suffering every day since Gong Xuan would punish them if he wasn’t satisfied with their progress every day.
One day, as he finished the cultivation of the Sheng Ding Scripture and the Myriad Dao Treasured Tome, Liu Yangyu and Gong Xuan appeared.
“Nice, you have improved a lot, since we last saw you. This is your new spear, try it.” Liu Yangyu took out a long spear from the storage ring.
The tip of the spear was shining with a faint glow, which looked entirely different from Ye Shang’s old one as it looked more glaring now. On the body of the spear, the gray and black grain texture made it look as if two spirit snakes were entwined together.
