Chapter 29 Long Chen's Shock
There were around seven or eight people in that group, and Long Chen could clearly see that the Grand Xias prince Xia Changfeng was amongst them. But what shocked Long Chen the most was that familiar face beside him.
That woman was very slender and fair, but her face always had a faint arrogance on it. It was the crazy woman Long Chen had encountered at the alchemist guild.
Why was she there And why did she seem so familiar with the Grand Xias prince Long Chen simply couldnt figure it out.
Their group entered an expensive teahouse just after he noticed them.
“One of those people is the fourth prince.” Chu Yao warned Long Chen as she had also seen those people.
“The fourth prince” He was supposed to be the most low-key prince. He never participated in the internal fights of the princes. But then why was he with the Grand Xias prince
“He has also changed his appearance, but his finger has a ring mark on it that he forgot to hide. He normally wears a dragon ring with a very distinctive pattern, so I easily recognize it,” said Chu Yao.
As a princess, she might have to act arrogant every day, but she was also very perceptive to the everyday habits of each prince; thus, she was easily able to see through the fourth princes disguise.
Long Chen felt a headache coming. Why would the fourth prince disguise himself He wanted to sneak in and use his divine sense to secretly eavesdrop.
However, the door was guarded by a dozen of the Grand Xias elite troops. Doing so would simply be too difficult. It was in the middle of the day, and trying to sneak in would be basically impossible. He gave up on that idea.
“Chu Yao, Im going to go back and prepare some ingredients that will resolve the foreign spiritual energies in your Dantain,” said Long Chen.
Despite being reluctant to part, she still obediently nodded her head.
Long Chen went directly home. As soon as he walked past the gate, a happy shout rang out.
Wilde was a small giant now, and he excitedly looked at Long Chen.
The current Wilde had become much livelier, and the thing that pleased Long Chen the most was that he was no longer as thin as he had been before.
His bare arms were clearly bigger, and some indistinct veins could be seen beneath the skin.
“Haha, have you been eating properly Wilde” Long Chen patted his sturdy arm.
“Brother Long, I eat till Im full every day. I feel like Ive become very strong now; thus, I want to be with brother Long so that I can protect you.” Wilde slapped his chest confidently, emitting a sound like a thunderous drum.
Long Chen nodded and brought Wilde into his own room. He then used his divine sense to examine Wildes body.
Despite nourishing them all this time and feeding them so much, still less than ten percent of Wildes cells were active.
And when he examined his four meridians, he noticed they had expanded a little. But most shocking of all was that there was what seemed to be a trace of spiritual qi within his Dantian.
“You learned how to cultivate” asked Long Chen.
“Brother Long, what is thiscultivating” asked Wilde with wide eyes.
Long Chen also didnt feel like trying to explain such a thing. Continuing his examination, he noticed that Wildes Dantian was deathly still, but there was still a steady flow of the worlds spiritual qi that was flowing into his Dantian.
“What an abnormal constitution; even without cultivating, it just automatically absorbs energy on its own.”
Long Chen sucked in a breath of cold air; this was something he had never encountered before. Wildes Dantian held a huge amount of spiritual qi, which meant that once his body was strong enough, he would be able to automatically absorb spiritual qi from heaven and earth to use.
If other martial artists were to learn of this, they would definitely go crazy. This meant that even when Wilde was sleeping or eating, he would still be incessantly cultivating.
“Wilde, Im going to teach you a few simple cultivation methods and how to use your Dantians qi.”
Due to how unique Wildes Dantian was, Long Chen decided not to teach him any Battle Skills. Wilde only had four meridians, which meant that he wouldnt be able to use any Battle Skills for now.
So Long Chen only taught him how to circulate his spiritual qi to his arms and legs, passively increasing their strength.
But Long Chen had still overestimated Wildes ability comprehension skills. Even something as simple as linking to his Dantian required six hours of Long Chens time to explain. Despite having Long Chens throat turn raw, Wilde was still mystified.
Long Chen knew he couldnt get angry. Wilde was listening to him completely innocently, so his belly full of anger was never released.
“Okay, how about this. Until you learn this, Ill work you to death.” Long Chen helplessly sighed.
“Im sorry brother Long, Im just too stupid. I could spend a lifetime without figuring this out.” Wilde dejectedly hung his head.
Wilde truly was too incompetent; he was unable to immerse himself even slightly within his Dantian. He couldnt even find where his Dantian was.
Long Chen was unwilling to resign himself to this result. Wildes physique was so powerful that it was frightening. If he had the assistance of his spiritual qi, the power which he could explode out with would be absolutely terrifying.
Long Chen felt that it was such a waste. He felt like a beggar who had a mountain of gold, yet still relied on begging to pass each day.
Suddenly, Long Chens eyes brightened. Placing his hand on Wildes back, he said, “Let me help you find your Dantian.”
His Spiritual Strength poured into Wildes Dantian. Since Wilde trusted Long Chen completely, there wasnt the slightest resistance. Long Chen easily merged his Spiritual Strength into Wildes Dantian.
Furthermore, even if Wilde had wanted to resist, he didnt know how to. But at least now Wilde had found the position of his Dantian.
“Now that youve found your Dantian, the next step is to immerse into it.”
“Use your intent to hook yourself into your Dantian.”
Long Chen sighed. But he still patiently controlled his temper. “Focus your entire mind onto your Dantian.”
“Oh, then what”
“Try to make it revolve.”
“Clockwise or counterclockwise”
Long Chen was practically speechless. “It doesnt matter. As long as it circulates, its fine.”
Now that he had found its position, Wilde slowly tried to control his Dantian. However, it was as if the Dantian werent even his and he was unable to move it at all.
“Youre not focused enough. Close your eyes and try again.”
Finally, under Long Chens great expectations, Wildes Dantian moved slightly. Although doing just that wasnt exactly using his Dantian, at least, he had found it and opened the path. Long Chen relaxed slightly.
“Good, next Ill use my Spiritual Strength to guide your Dantians qi for one cycle. Remember how Im doing this.”
After saying this, Long Chens Spiritual Strength circulated into Wildes Dantian. When Wildes Dantian felt Long Chens Spiritual Strength, it was as if it had been provoked and it immediately exploded out.
The originally completely calm Dantian immediately was like an erupting volcano, like angry waves trying to swallow the sky.
“Wilde, can you control your Dantian” Long Chen started to celebrate, but…
“No, I dont know what happened.” Wilde was completely shocked at the uprising of the spiritual qi within him.
“Dont be afraid, remember the path Im taking.”
Long Chen didnt feel like telling him the position of each one of his acupuncture points. He wouldnt be able to remember them anyways, so he skipped that. Having him remember the feeling of where they were was good enough.
Long Chen used his Spiritual Strength to draw Wildes Dantians qi into his arm. Long Chen wanted to go slowly and circulate it.
How could he have predicted that as soon as Wildes qi reached his arm, it became like a wild horse and refused to be controlled by Long Chen anymore Wild energy surged out.
Wilde felt a great power pass through his arm, so he instinctively punched out.
The entire roof was shaken into pieces; smoke and dust exploded out, revealing the starry sky above.
“What a berserk energy!”
Long Chen was extremely alarmed. All this had just been caused by the wind from Wildes fist, but it was already so frightening! If someone was hit by the actual fist, wouldnt they be smashed into pulp
Wilde was also stupefied at his own power. He had never thought he would have such strength.
Long Chen once more examined Wildes Dantian and found that the spiritual qi within had basically all been depleted.
“Wilde, go back and rest. Remember what Ive taught you and train every day. Dont goof off,” ordered Long Chen solemnly.
Wildes comprehension skills were already extremely low. If he was lazy as well, then even a divine immortal would be unable to teach him.
“Dont worry brother Long, Ill train like my life depends on it!” Wilde was filled with excitement now.
After Wilde left, Long Chen speechlessly looked at the roofless room. Just what secret was hidden within Wildes body
That fist had even shocked Long Chen. If that long-eyebrowed Blood Condensation expert was hit by it, it was doubtless that he would die.
But right now, ninety percent of Wildes cells were still dormant. If they were all awoken, even Long Chen would feel tremendous fear.
But thinking about Wildes simple and honest nature, Long Chen shook his head. Wilde was his brother, and the stronger he was, the better. There was no need to worry.
Taking out a piece of paper, he wrote down a list of forty-eight names of medicinal ingredients.
“Starfusing Pill, a second tier medicinal pill. Right now, I have no way of refining an upper grade second tier medicinal pill. Looks like I can only go to grandmaster Yun Qi. But first I need to collect all the medicinal ingredients.”
According to Long Chens recollections, the Starfusing Pill should be able to resolve the foreign spiritual energies within Chu Yaos body, but it had to be an upper grade pill.
The current Long Chens Pill Flame was too weak; despite how much talent he had in that regard, it was impossible for him to refine a high grade second tier pill with such a Pill Flame.
The next day, Long Chen left his house. Arriving at the alchemist guilds storeroom, he handed his list over.
What was outside Long Chens expectations was that all the ingredients could be found here except one of the main ingredients, the Starfusing Grass.
Starfusing Grass was an extremely precious treasure. It was something that could be used to refine many second tier pills, and in fact, most second tier pills actually required it in their pill formula, making it always in short supply.
Long Chen nodded. Only missing one ingredient was already better than what Long Chen had expected.
Collecting his ingredients and leaving the alchemist guild, Long Chen suddenly saw a certain figure. A slightly cruel smile appeared on his mouth.
