TL-Note : Please bear in mind that a lot of Taoist cultivation technique’s, and Taoist theory was mentioned in this chapter. It was immensely hard for me, a non-Chinese to understand, and translate them. I did my best, but I still probably messed up a lot.

Chapter 23 : “Meng Xianji’s Martial Art”
Since he could see the path before him, he couldn’t wait to tread on it.
Hong Xiaobao immediately called for his servant girl to massage him according to those 18 acupoints. The girl sat near Hong Xiaobao and started to pressure 9 Primary Points, and 9 Secret Holes around his heart.
She knew that Ninth Prince Hong Xiaobao was unconventional, so she did not ask any questions, as she massaged him according to his instructions. Meanwhile, Hong Xiaobao tried to feel changes in his body.
After sometime, Jianpu wrinkled her brows slightly as she looked at Hong Xiaobao “Well …. This Ninth Prince is a little different, it seems ….”
“How is he different ?” Asked Qingqing.
“His heartbeat increased, it’s like a drum now…” Jianpu looked strangely at Hong Xiaobao. “How can it be ? He is just lying down there, why did his heartbeat suddenly increase ?”
After some time of thought she said, “It is a little unusual, but it’s probably nothing important.”
Practicing in such a place with full of people was a bit risky, especially around Jianpu whose wisdom was greater than normal people’s. It was lucky that she did not find out. She was only a little surprised and nothing more
Meanwhile, Hong Xiaobao had a beautiful feeling, as his power increased with his heartbeat. “Ha Ha Ha Ha ! Success, I finally succeeded !”
Meng Xianji said with a smile “How do you feel ?”
“I feel great !” This was his first official step on his martial path so he naturally felt amazing ! The feeling of power was addicting.
With his heart more powerful, and his blood refined, he felt as a reborn man!
He suddenly heard Meng Xianji say “Human heart is responsible for bodily functions, while the brain is responsible for one’s spirit. You already started to practice your body, so you can already be counted as a toddler.”
His heart could now pump more Blood Qi throughout his body, which meant more energy availabe for use. Hong Xiaobao couldn’t stop shivering. This new martial path was waiting for him just around the corner !
Now that he stepped into the martial arts threshold, his interest was high as ever, but he asked, “Your cultivation art isn’t so simple, isn’t it? In the long run, this Blood Qi will finally decline, which would mean my strength decreasing right ? If so, this Limitless Fortune Divine Art is pretty useless …”
He was feeling full of power right now, but without the continuous massage his power would surely decline, which would be an unpleasant outcome.
“You little bastard, would I teach you some useless skill ?” Meng Xianji cursed “What you just practised was only the foundation of my cultivation art. Any further thoughtless practice would be futile !”
Hong Xiaobao listen to him very carefully fearing that he would miss even a single detail.
“Every martial art relies on some kind of Qi. True Qi, is one of the many Qi’s. This True Qi, is in fact nothing more than an energy stored inside your meridians. And it will surge forward at a critical moment to help you defeat your enemy.”
“My Limitless Fortune Divine Art is great in this regard, because all the energy in one’s body lies in his blood !”
“No matter what we do, we must have energy for that, right ? If you move faster, your consumption of energy will grow. For normal people, they have fat tissue’s that serve as an energy storage. But martial artist’s consumption is on a whole new level comapred to normal people.So they use True Qi, that gives them energy, and store them in their meridians. But with your Greedy Wolf’s Body you are unable to produce, or have True Qi, so here’s where the Blood Qi comes in. But how would you store this kind of energy, you ask ? Well, these Secret Holes are there for something!”
“I get it now !” Hong Xiaobao understood it immediately “Human body is just like a city, right ? No matter which city it is, it’s main parts are always it’s avenue’s, just like 12 Primary Meridians! Eight Extraordinary Meridians are it’s alley, while these Secret Holes are just like a household ! And this Blood Qi is like city’s inhabitants ! When building a city, one must first look for a proper terrain for a house, then organise the construction. After that one could let inhabitants into these houses !”
“Ha Ha Ha Ha, Stinky brat you really did understand everything right off the bat ! “ Meng Xianji praised Hong Xiaobao “What you said just now was right, but you cannot store infinite amount of True Qi in your meridians [1. You know, how in a lot of xianxia/wuxia, you need to breakthrough/expand your meridians to store more energy ? Same principle], or it will lead to jamming your meridians [2. I don’t know, maybe it means Qi Deviation or something, but that’s just literally what’s in raws, so i am going to leave it as it is] . So their only one way to circulate their True Qi in a Micro-Cosmic Orbit [3. Taoist breathing technique, for more information check this]. Their strength was not bad, but the higher one’s cultivation, the higher one’s chance of faliling.”
“On the other hand, with my Limitless Fortune Divine Art you can store energy in these Secret Holes. It usually cannot be detected, and at the critical time it can accelerate your blood flow ! Moroever, you will not be be experiencing jammed meridians, because whenever we use more energy our blood flow will accelerate on it’s own to give us more energy.”
Hong Xiaobao was shocked. It is really powerful !
This ability, isn’t it simply invincible ?
“Strong, it’s really strong !” But Hong Xiaobao asked curiously “Now what ?”
“Very simple” Meng Xianji said with a smile “Your body is now capable of storing energy, coupled with your Greedy Wolf’s Body , and some moves from other fogies, in some time you could definitely kill that Ye Jinning bastard ! Nothing, Heaven or Earth, could keep him alive !”
“Ha Ha Ha Ha ! I like it ! When do we start practising ?” Hong Xiaobao was a little impatient. This cultivation art was really powerful, why would he waste his time, and not practice it ?
“Don’t worry, Stinky brat” Meng Xianji said “ Your Greedy Wolf’s Body already entered the Swallow the Heavens Phase, so it is not so important to practice this cultivation art further. Now that you achieved first threshold in my Limitless Fortune Divine Art, you can now start to control the blood in your body. This cultivation art’s all mysteries lie within your blood. Your blood transports all the energy in your body, so when you learn to control the blood, you’ll have the qualifications to carry on with your practice.”
Good, this Meng Xianji provided him the way, while other Grandfathers will provide him with a style. This dividement of work was very clear !
Following that Hong Xiaobao lied on his settee, while attempting to control the blood in his body using his consciousness.
Meng Xianji was right, no matter what action humans did, energy needed for it would be transported by blood. If he could not control his blood he could not achieve the peek of this cultivation art ! After all, True Qi was not endless, and meridians that held this True Qi, could not expand infinitely. Each expanding was more hard than another, and finally if your meridians were jammed, you would be paralyzed for life !
