Chapter 11: Great Strength
“You, you…” Lion Man Tong San looked at the large magic beast’s skeleton in disbelief. “Xue Ying, did you cut off and hide the meat? Where did you hide it?”
Tong San searched every corner of the dining room. He even kneeled on the ground and checked under the table and cabinet.
“Uncle Tong, I ate it all.” Xue Ying tried to convince him.
“You really ate it? It weighed more than 5,000 kilograms. You are so small, yet you ate it all?” Tong San stared at Xue Ying, “How can I believe this? Even a knight cannot eat more than 5,000 kilograms of meat in one go. Let alone you.”
Dong Bo Xue Ying felt helpless.
This was the first biological leap he had experienced; every one of his cells was craving energy. That was why he was able to eat so much. Even if he wanted to, he would not be able to eat so much in the future.
“Uncle Tong, look.” Dong Bo Xue Ying picked up a silver plate near him and suddenly squeezed it hard twice. The plate was compressed into a metal ball.
“This…” Tong San stared dumbfounded.
Dong Bo Xue Ying took the metal ball into his right hand. He squeezed it again and silver liquid flowed out from gaps between his fingers.
After that, Xue Ying folded and rubbed his hands. A silver stick appeared!
“How did you do that?” Tong San couldn’t believe it. Even he and Zong Ling could not do that. If he pressed hard, he could crack the plate and reshape it into a ball. Squeezing the metal until it flowed like a liquid, or even reforming it into a stick, was really terrifying.
“I said, I ate all the meat.” Dong Bo Xue Ying said, “Will you believe me now, Uncle Zong?”
“Sure, sure. I believe whatever you say. What on earth is going on? How did you suddenly become so powerful? This, this is simply… I cannot figure it out.” Tong San was quite confused. Usually, one could not skip ranks. The order progressed from Human rank to Earth rank, from Earth rank to Heaven rank, and then from Heaven rank to Meteor rank.
“You don’t have any Dou Qi, and you are not a Human Knight yet. How is this possible?” Tong San could hardly understand this.
“I am now!”
Dong Bo Xue Ying stood up, “Uncle Zong, wait a moment.”
As he said this, Dong Bo Xue Ying started practicing the fist technique in the spacious room. Each gesture and motion flowed like water. His body was filled with strength and flooded by energies from the heavens and earth. An amazing power emerged in his muscles, a power called… Dou Qi!
In fact, after he ate all of the meat, his body had already started generating some Dou Qi.
“Gurgle gurgle gurgle.”
As Dong Bo Xue Ying practiced the”Three Stages Flame Technique”, his body gathered more and more Dou Qi and imbued itself into his skin, muscles, and bones. The mysterious power of the heavens and the earth began to unceasingly enter his body while his body continuously transformed due to the Dou Qi… It was as if his body was a bottomless pit.
He kept practicing the Dou Qi technique over and over again.
In the beginning, Tong San was shocked and worried, but after some time passed, he was able to gradually calm down. However, four hours quickly passed by, and he began to feel somewhat powerless.
“Why are you still practicing?”
“How long do you plan on practicing?” Tong San looked at Dong Bo Xue Ying in puzzlement.
It must be said that practicing a Dou Qi technique more doesn’t necessarily mean greater gains! Before becoming a knight, only two or three practice sessions a day were needed as the the body would be unable to absorb anymore, but after becoming a knight… it still took a very long time for the Dou Qi to increase! There was a limit to the amount of Dou Qi that one can absorb each day. Therefore, the number of practices was limited too, but Dong Bo Xue Ying had already been practicing for more than four hours. This was clearly abnormal!
“Hong long long~~~” Dong Bo Xue Ying felt all of the Dou Qi within his body bubbling in excitement. At last, he could no longer absorb any more of the power of the heavens and the earth.
“I never would have thought I would breakthrough so quickly, and that I would become an Earth Knight the moment I broke through.” Dong Bo Xue Ying secretly said to himself. “Of course, it’s only natural that my Dou Qi has reached the rank of an Earth Knight. My physical strength already far surpasses that of an Earth Knight.”
According to the normal path…
When the body first produced a strand of Dou Qi, they would then become a Human Knight.
Afterwards, Dou Qi would begin appearing in their muscles and bones and gradually nourish them. The Dou Qi would grow more and more until it could finally be found throughout the muscles and bones. Only then would they become an Earth Knight!
After the Dou Qi covered the whole body, it would begin condensing within the abdomen into a Qi Ocean within the Dantian! This was the sign of a Heaven Knight!
, When Dou Qi condensed into a liquid and started flowing within the Dantian’s Qi Ocean, one would become a Meteor Knight. After liquefying the Dou Qi, a noticeable change would occur in the Dou Qi. It would no longer be fierce and hard. Rather, it would become both hard and soft. By mixing strength with gentleness, a Meteor Knight would be able to form a tenacious layer of Dou Qi on the surface of the body to protect themselves. This was the reason why Meteor Knights could simply ignore a barrage of countless arrows. While this Dou Qi layer had high defensive capabilities, it could also be used to nourish the body and strengthen it.
If the liquid Dou Qi condensed even further, it would form a false Dan. This form of Dou Qi was even more profound and powerful. It was so soft that it could enter the tender inner organs, causing the body to transform once again! This was the trait of a Silver Moon Knight.
But a Legend Knight?
They must reach the realm of being one with the heavens! When that moment came, they will be able to draw upon the power of the heavens and the earth! Only then would they truly be Legend Knights. A Legend Knight was completely different from a Silver Moon Knight. The gap was exceedingly astonishing. They could kill a Silver Moon Knight with a single strike! Legend Knights represented the very limits of mortals, . Only a few peak Legend Knights could even battle a Transcendent and survive.
They were the last step before becoming a Transcendent.
“My body’s muscles and bones are both perfect due to my needless nourishment of it. It was due to this that I could immediately reach the rank of an Earth Knight.” Dong Bo Xue Ying said to himself. “The next step is to establish the Dou Qi Spring. I must now slowly accumulate enough Dou Qi.”
“Xue Ying, Xue Ying.” Tong San began shouting as soon as he saw that Xue Ying had stopped.
“Haha. Uncle Tong, come with me.” Dong Bo Xue Ying said with a smile before immediately exiting the dining hall and leaping down from the building. Tong San swiftly followed him and jumped down.
It was extremely fast.
Two figures arrived at the empty martial grounds.
“Xue Ying, why have you come to the martial grounds?” Tong San asked in bewilderment.
“Don’t be so anxious Uncle Tong.” Saying this, Dong Bo Xue Ying ran to the side and picked up the spear he usually used. This spear weighed over 25 kilograms and could be considered the best spear within Snow Rock Mountain.
Dong Bo Xue Ying grasped the pike and fixed his attention on the alchemic dummy in front of him.
Tong San held his breath and watched attentively off to the side. He understood that his nephew wanted to reveal his strength. He wanted to see what level of strength Xue Ying had reached when putting his spear techniques to use.
The spear moved, becoming a mirage.
The afterimages of the spear collided with the alchemic dummy, repeatedly releasing a “pu, pu, pu” sound.
In an instant, Dong Bo Xue Ying had already stopped his spear.
“So fast! Xue Ying, your spear technique is so fast, now even I cannot block it.” Tong San was stunned by the speed of Dong Bo Xue Ying’s spear technique. Immediately after he looked at the alchemic dummy, and his eyes widened even more. Densely packed holes appeared on the body of the alchemic dummy, the large numbers of holes forming three words- ‘Isn’t this amazing’ !
“You’re able to pierce through it’s body?” Tong San asked, his eyes filled with astonishment.
Anyone under the Star rank would absolutely be unable to harm this alchemic dummy!
“Then I’ll let you see something even more amazing!” Dong Bo Xue Ying suddenly let the power within his body burst out; there was a faint red vapor surrounding him. A ferocious atmosphere erupted around him, terrifying Tong San. Dong Bo Xue Ying brandished his spear and struck the alchemic dummy. The spear bent into a ridiculous curve, and with a ‘peng’, the dummy trembled and cracked. Peng! With a second strike, the dummy immediately shattered, pieces of it flying everywhere. Only the lower half of the dummy was left.
“Peng!” The spear struck the alchemic dummy a third time at its foundation.
The entire spear fractured. The lower body of the dummy broke into pieces.
Dong Bo Xue Ying stared at the broken spear in his hand. It was a spear that he had used for a long time. He never thought his strength would have been able to break it.
“Brother I’m back!” little brother Qing Shi’s clear voice was heard.
Dong Bo Xue Ying lifted his head to look at the sky. It had turned dark.
“Uncle Tong, Qing Shi and Uncle Zong are back. Let’s go eat first. I’ll tell you and Uncle Zong everything after we eat.” Dong Bo Xue Ying said with a smile. Had it been anyone else who had come across this matter, perhaps they would still be baffled. Fortunately, Dong Bo Xue Ying had read many books, and there happened to be one book that had an extremely brief record of this.
