My Big Brother is Seeking Death Again - 43. Can't bring so much stuff
“You can try to practice first, and if there is something you do not understand, you can ask me again.” Brother is waiting for you oh ……(^ω^)
“Hmm.” Shi Xia nodded, recalled those moves, and habitually began to break down the generalization in the mind, drawing the movements step by step.
“This sword method only has three moves, but the main point is flexibility and versatility. The better you can perceive these moves, the stronger you will be.”
“Three moves? Isn’t there thirty-six moves?”
“Nonsense!” Bi Hong interjected, “Falling Star is my Master’s famous sword technique. Who in the immortal cultivation world doesn’t know that this sword technique only has three moves?”
“Did you see thirty-six moves in your mind earlier?” Chi Hou asked as he stepped forward.
“Yes.” Shi Xia recalled the images in her mind again. As expected, there are thirty-six moves. She directly picked up the wooden stick next to her and waved it. Although her movement wasn’t very fluent, she was able to show thirty-six moves.
“How is this possible?” Bi Hong looked surprised. He has seen his Master’s sword art before. The moves Shi Xia showed were very familiar to him, but why are there thirty-six moves? “Did I remember it wrong?”
“You didn’t remember it wrong.” Chi Hou nodded, his eyes brightened as he explained, “Falling Star indeed only has three moves, but each move is further divided into twelve stances. The thirty-six strokes that Xia Xia said are exactly what it looks like after dismantling the moves.”
“Dismantling the moves?” Bi Hong stared at Shi Xia with a disbelieving face, “She just got the sword moves, this is too fast!” The most difficult part of sword art is to understand the Sword Intent. Only when one has a thorough understanding of the sword techniques can they dismantle the stances. The more advanced the sword technique, the more complex it is. Some people can’t even dismantle a single sword move in their lifetime, and it only took her how long, three breaths?
“Is it hard?” Shi Xia looked anxious. She just decelerated, plus decomposition and then combined. If one has studied calculus, they will not find it difficult.
“Xia Xia has excellent sword skill and has comprehended the first hurdle of this sword art.” Chi Hou stroked her head with satisfaction. He had the urge to show her off all over the world. She’s really his sister, so great! (≧▽≦)/
The next two years, Shi Xia spent in sword practice desperately.
It has to be said that Chi Hou is a great teacher. He would carefully give her a thorough explanation at each move, and then let her rehearse it again by herself. And as soon as she made a move, he was able to point out even a millimeter of deviation. In this way, she practiced and corrected, practiced and corrected, and gradually comprehend the patterns. She slowly found the tricks, and finally, a year later, she could finally barely use the first move.
A year took to learn one move, then how would she give the high school exam of three moves in a year ah! Even after such a fast progress of sword learning, she was still a little worried about the time limit. After all, she didn’t have much time.
“You have just started to learn the sword, this is not easy to achieve.” Seeming to understand her frustration, Chi Hou comforted her, “There are millions of sword techniques, but that doesn’t mean just a slight variation makes them deviate from each move. The more you practice, naturally, the better your skill will be.”
“Okay.” Only then she regained some confidence, “By the way, Chi Hou, how long did it take you to learn this sword?” She was a little curious.
“Call me Brother!” He thought back carefully before saying, “About …… a month.”
“Uh ……” felt like a sword in the knee.
“All the techniques of the swords.”
“…… ” What happened to the encouragement before? I’m sure you said there’s no comparison, no deviation.
In order to improve her strength, Shi Xia spent all her energy on sword practice. And with Chi Hou as the perfect teacher, she was able to master the first two moves of Falling Star. However, she found a new problem. The same sword move, why when she and Chi Hou performed individually, it will have two completely different effects. He would just gently wave his sword and the space around a thousand miles radius would freeze. But no matter how fast she swung her sword, she could only see the sky full of sword shadows. Who knows where the sword actually went, she couldn’t find them anywhere anyway.
So she could only ask the idle Bi Hong for advice.
“That’s because there’s no Qi in your sword moves.” Bi Hong pointed to the sword in her hand and said, “Only when the sword moves are dissolved with spiritual energy can they have an astronomical effect. Otherwise, it’s just a simple sword move.”
Qi? Shi Xia took a deep breath, mobilized her spiritual energy into ice spiritual energy, and again swung her sword. Instantly, the effect of the sword moves changed. The shadows of the sword that only appeared when she waved her sword earlier, became a thousands of icicles and clattered everywhere before sticking on the wall and making holes on them. Indeed, the power has been enhanced a hundred times.
“Still not much.” She used her spiritual energy this time but she still couldn’t help but feel it’s nothing compared to Chi Hou. What is missing then?
“You’re only at the Foundation Establishment stage. Naturally you can not reach the same height as the master. This is already considered very good.” Bi Hong gave a rare compliment, “Besides, Master’s Sword Intent is very powerful. Even if he only swung an ordinary sword, its effect will still be amazingly powerful.”
“Sword intent?” Shi Xia was stunned, “What is that?”
“Sword Intent is the embodiment of a cultivator’s comprehension of the Sword Dao. Only those who have achieved great success in the sword art, or have a sense of the Sword Dao, will have the chance to produce Sword Intent.” Bi Hong looked at her, and waved his hand. Immediately, a giant golden spirit sword appeared in the air, “This is my Sword Intent. Each person’s understanding of the Sword Dao is different, so the form of the Sword Intent will also be different.”
Wow! Shi Xia stared at the giant sword that Bi Hong conjured up with excitement. Indeed, just by looking at it like this, she could feel the Qi running along the sword.
“Then how do I know if I have developed the Sword Intent?”
“When Sword Intent develops, a special stream of air will appear within your dantian.”
“Special air ……” Shi Xia closed her eyes and felt before saying, “Does it have a red glow?”
“Everyone’s airflow is different, and the colour is naturally …… Huh? What did you say!” Bi Hong was stunned and looked at her incredulously, “You, you, you …… are saying that you already have that airflow in your Dantian!”
“Yes!” Shi Xia nodded, “From the first day of sword practice, there was. But it was like only a tiny particle of sand, now it has grown into a ball.”
“……” Bi Hong was silent for five seconds, “Girl, are you still human?” Not so fast.
“I don’t care about such details. Quickly tell me, how can I turn this mass of Qi into Sword Intent?”
There’s no way you can’t care, okay! He had practiced for a whole fifty years before he developed his Sword Intent. His heart felt so tired, he felt like he had lost the world.
“You just have to channel that air into your Dantian and then imagine it taking shape and making the form you want your Sword Intent to be.”
“Then is it true that the more powerful the thing that is transformed, the stronger the Sword Intent will be?”
“Hmm. Sword Intent can be of any shape.”
“Then I have to choose the most powerful one!” Shi Xia closed her eyes and slowly drew out that red air in her Dantian. While forming the vague shape, she silently chanted in her heart. The most powerful thing, the most powerful, the most powerful ……
She only felt a slight heat in her heart, and in less than a moment, a red mass of gas began to float out of her body.
Bi Hong also couldn’t help but raise his head with anticipation, seriously looking into the ball of red gas in the air.
He saw that the red gas slowly converged and compressed and became more and more solid. Finally, the shape became clear with a round body and pointed tail, and it looked a bit like ……
“Radish?” Bi Hong froze, before howling with laughter, “Hahahahahahaha …… this is the most powerful thing you imagined? You imagined for half a day to change the Qi into a radish …… hahahahahahaha… …” He laughed so hard he couldn’t even stand straight. He also didn’t hesitate to launch a stream of mockeries towards her. He even grabbed the ‘Radish’ Sword Intent, while laughing, “How will you use this kind of Sword Intent? Will you throw it or smash it? Hahahahahahaha ……”
“How can it be so small?” Shi Xia frowned. This is not scientific at all.
“Even a bigger radish is useless!” Bi Hong continued to howl while pressing his belly.
“This is not a radish.”
“This round body with a pointed tail, what is it if not a radish? Twice as big as it won’t do you any good, okay?” Bi Hong teased her even more, “What exactly were you thinking when you just condensed your Sword Intent?”
What was she thinking about? Shi Xia recalled the image that flashed through her mind at the last moment. The most powerful weapon in the world, “probably …… atomic bomb?”
The next moment……
The entire Xiu Ling Peak jumped up high and shook three times. A ten feet high mushroom cloud rose in the sky.
Someone who was grasping the Sword Intent was directly blasted from a white fatty into a black fatty ……
A strong smell of roasted pig, or the kind of baked potato emitted from the whole peak.
Bi Hong stood up with his black face. He slowly turned his head at Shi Xia, opened his mouth and spat out a mouthful of black smoke.
“You didn’t say, your radish can fry ……”
“……” Can’t you hear me saying that it is not a radish?
He hates all the radishes in the world….
The day when the ‘Dreamless Realm’ will open finally arrived. Shi Xia finally learned only the first two moves of the Falling Star. Chi Hou firmly disagreed with her leaving, but still somehow figured out how she could go there and didn’t stop her further. Before she left, he stuffed a bunch of things to her as self-defense.
“This is an eighth-ranked magic talisman, which can withstand three times the full force of a Nascent Soul cultivator’s strike. There’s a dozen of them, keep them with you and use them when necessary.”
“This is a defensive magic weapon with a formation on it that cannot be broken by non-materialized God cultivators. I made five of them, which one do you want? Why don’t you just take them all with you?”
“This is the Nine Rebirth Soul Returning Pill. As long as you are alive even by one breath, you can’t be killed. One bottle may not be enough, how about bringing ten bottles?”
“This is the top grade magic clothes, with each layer filled with defensive formations on it. I prepared ten sets, don’t forget to change and bathe regularly. You can wash these too.”
“Brother! My own brother!” Shi Xia pressed his claws that were about to pull out more things from his storage ring and stuff into hers. He is not Zhen Bing anymore, why is his Doraemon mode still turned on? Did he forget to turn it off? Shi Xia looked at the mountains of things and said, “You see, everyone is going into the Secret Realm to have a wonderful adventure and find treasure. How can I take these treasures with me there? Is it necessary to show everyone how rich I am?”
Shi Xia persuaded him for a long time, and was finally able to restrain Chi Hou who was about to stuff a bunch of money to her. No wonder she did not see him in the past few days. He must be busy preparing these things.
In the end, she only chose a few magic talismans, a few bottles of emergency potions, and a spiritual sword she uses for the practice. Chi Hou see her off as she rushed down the mountain to leave for Secret Realm.
