Book 8 Chapter 16 The Final Phase of the Supreme Force, A Perfect Body!
While Teng Qingshan was practicing fist art, he could distinctly feel that his body was going through an astonishing transformation. Back when he was in the Great Prairie, Teng Qingshan had already reached the Middle Phase of the Supreme Force. However, it had taken Teng Qingshan more than a year to reach from the Middle Phase of the Supreme Force to the Final Phase. He had only attained a breakthrough today!
As soon as Teng Qingshan attained a breakthrough, he could feel this astonishing transformation!
The powerful Supreme Force was like iron wires and tough silk, coursing through every part of Teng Qingshan’s body and hiding in every cell. His muscles, bones, tendons, and internal organs were all filled with this magical power, and this power was transforming!
It was becoming increasingly stronger and tougher!
Teng Qingshan could hear indistinctly the sounds of the transformation happening in his body after the unification of each Supreme Force and ‘Spirit’. This transformation caused the Supreme Force itself to become even more magical and marvelous. Simultaneously, it caused Teng Qingshan’s body, and even his tiny cells, to go through a complete transformation.
Originally, Teng Qingshan’s internal organs were much weaker in comparison to his the muscles and bones.
However, at this moment, the Supreme Force, which was like lightning and silk, vibrated in his internal organs, causing a transformation. The internal organs were also morphing at a rapid speed, becoming increasingly tougher and stronger! For example, even if Teng Qingshan’s heart wasn’t under the protection of the Supreme Force, ordinary people wouldn’t be able to pierce it with a blade.
From internal to external, Teng Qingshan’s body possessed no weak points!
Everything blended together well! This was the perfect body possessed only by those who had cultivated to the pinnacle of the Internal Martial Arts.
“The Spirit and Supreme Force actually complement one another. The breakthrough of my Supreme Force actually caused my Spirit to experience a transformation.” Teng Qingshan could feel the changes distinctly. For a very long time, Teng Qingshan had been unable to control the air with his ‘Spirit’ and eliminate air resistance!
However, after he reached the Final Phase of the Supreme Force, Teng Qingshan managed to do it.
The ‘Spirit’ in the Niwan Palace blended continually into the Supreme Force which had reached its pinnacle. As the Supreme Force reached a state of saturation and after the ‘Spirit’ blended with the Supreme Force, it returned to the Niwan Palace. However, just this process of entering the Apex Supreme Force and coming back out had already caused the ‘Spirit’ to undergo a transformation.
“One can only reach the Final Phase of the Supreme Force if one’s ‘Spirit’ is powerful enough!
“And one can only control air and eliminate air resistance when one reaches the Final Phase of the Supreme Force.
“These two complement one another!” Teng Qingshan exclaimed inwardly in admiration.
“No wonder! Between the Buddhist Sects and the Daoist Sects, the Buddhist Sect valued the ‘Spirit’ more. According to this reasoning, when the expert reached the middle phase of Arhat, the strength of the ‘Spirit’ should be similar to the strength of a ‘Spirit’ which belonged to a Daoist Sect’s Golden Dan Innate Expert. However, even though the Buddhist Sect has a higher requirement in regards to the strength of the ‘Spirit,’ a Buddhist Sect’s expert can only control air resistance at the Final Phase.
“Whereas, the Daoist Sect’s expert can only control air resistance at the stage of a Golden Dan of the Innate Realm.
“The same goes with the cultivators of the Internal Martial Arts. We can only eliminate air resistance when we reach the Final Phase of the Supreme Force.”
Teng Qingshan could feel this great joy surging in his heart.
As he reached the apex of the Internal Martial Arts’ Supreme Force, his internal and external body had now blended into one harmonious whole, reaching a perfect completion. The Supreme Force was extremely powerful, occasionally hiding within and coagulating on the surface of the body. One could say that in terms of body, Teng Qingshan had already reached the limit! If he made any more improvements, it would be improvements in the comprehension of the ‘Dao’!
When a Golden Dan Innate Expert and an Arhat Expert at the Final Phase reached the limit, the explosive strength of their body would reach around eight hundred thousand Jin.
As for Teng Qingshan, his body had unified with the Supreme Force, and he had reached the limit; his explosive strength would be around one million and six hundred thousand Jin!
It would be almost twice the amount of explosive strength of a Golden Dan Innate Expert and an Final Phase Arhat Expert!
“My body has reached its limit. Now, even the body of an Emptiness Realm Expert will not be as strong as mine.” Teng Qingshan knew this clearly. “I can no longer improve physically. Now, what I need to do is to comprehend the ‘Dao’.
The current Teng Qingshan could even cause the air to produce explosive sounds just by inhaling deeply.
His internal and external body had reached a completion. This was the limit of the body!
Teng Qingshan withdrew his strength and took a deep breath. The breath of air he inhaled and exhaled even shot a hole into the mountain wall.
“Big Brother Teng, you attained a breakthrough?” Li Jun walked over cheerfully.
“Teacher.” Teng Shou showed a sense of happiness as well. After being taught by Teng Qingshan, Teng Shou knew that…… after reaching the Grandmaster Realm of the Internal Martial Arts, the cultivation ranking would be divided into three levels: Beginning Phase; Middle Phase; and the Final Phase. In the first level, spots of twirling light flashed on the entire body. In the second level, the Supreme Force would coagulate into a ringlike form. In the third level, the Supreme Force would envelop the entire body!
“Haha, yes, I have attained breakthrough.” Teng Qingshan nodded with a smile.
“Big Brother Teng, this is a really happy occasion! Today…… Hmmm… I must make more food today.” Li Jun felt extremely happy for Teng Qingshan. At the side, Little Ping waved her arms about hastily and shouted, “Sister Jun, I will help.”
“Congratulations, Boss,” Old Wang said while laughing.
“Big Brother Teng,” Li Jun suddenly said softly.
“Eh?” Teng Qingshan looked at her.
“Big Brother Teng, didn’t you say you would subdue that Six Legged Bladelike Chi after you reach the Final Phase of Supreme Force?” Li Jun pointed at the other cave as she spoke. When Teng Qingshan heard this, his eyes lit up, and he turned to look at the other cave. Looking from his location, Teng Qingshan could even see the Six Legged Bladelike Chi which was lying in the cave and sleeping soundly.
The Six Legged Bladelike Chi was very good at sleeping. A month had passed since Teng Qingshan obtained this stone inscription, but the Six Legged Bladelike Chi had only woken up twice during this period.
“This Six Legged Bladelike Chi is extremely powerful. It can fly and escape underground. Its body’s defense is also extremely powerful,” Teng Qingshan praised secretly. “Additionally, the blade art that the six bladelike legs performed is also very marvelous. The Six Legged Bladelike Chi is the most suitable one to be my training partner. In the future, I can bring it to the Nine Prefectures, and it will be of great use!”
After Teng Qingshan encountered the God of Heaven Palace, he knew very clearly that…
In the Nine Prefectures, the eight Supreme Sects appeared to be the superior forces, but in actuality, there were forces which surged violently in the dark! Like the God of Heaven Palace which possessed extremely great ambition. Of course, Teng Qingshan himself was not willing to be ordinary!
“Hmph, Qing Hu Island! Qing Hu Island and Gui Yuan Sect both exist in one prefecture. How can there be two tigers in the land of one prefecture?” Teng Qingshan understood this very clearly in his heart and thought to himself, “In the future, the branch of Internal Martial Arts will flourish! Just an area of Jiangning County won’t be enough. Qing Hu Island has controlled Yangzhou for long enough. It is time for it to move!”
Teng Qingshan harbored great hatred within his heart!
How could he just drop the matter which caused Qing Qing’s death?
If he didn’t possess enough strength, every word he said would just be a prattle.
“Little Jun, you should all go outside now. Little Jun, you can talk to it after I am done fighting it,” Teng Qingshan said. Li Jun and the others nodded. “Screech~~Screech~~” Li Jun called Blue Luan, who was sleeping in its bed, to go out together. As for the Whole Gale Eagle? It was already outside.
Soon, Li Jun, Blue Luan, and the others had all left.
Teng Qingshan took the Reincarnation Spear, which had been leaning on the wall, and headed into the Six Legged Bladelike Chi’s lair.
“Dong! Dong! Dong!”
Teng Qingshan intentionally stepped forcefully on the ground, causing the earth to shake and surface of the rocky ground to crack. It was as though a giant was striding forward.
The sleeping Six Legged Bladelike Chi suddenly opened the pair of protruding eyes on its triangular head.
“Whew!” Simultaneously, it stood up. Its six legs leaned forward, preparing to leap out at any time. It opened its mouth and emitted deep roars which transmitted a peculiar fishy smell.
“Six Legged Bladelike Chi, how about you and I fight?” Teng Qingshan lifted his Reincarnation Spear and pointed at the Six Legged Bladelike Chi.
The Six Legged Bladelike Chi immediately roared furiously.
In the Six Legged Bladelike Chi’s opinion, a fight between itself and Teng Qingshan was meaningless.
“Hmph, are you afraid?” Teng Qingshan revealed a disdainful expression.
As expected, the proud Six Legged Bladelike Chi had been angered by Teng Qingshan’s attitude. It scuttled to the side at lightning speed, and simultaneously, it pushed opened a path through the mountain wall with its front legs as though it was pushing aside a tall underbrush. Its colossal body then darted out like a flash of lightning.
Teng Qingshan and the Six Legged Bladelike Chi had already fought many times.
If they fought in a narrow space, Teng Qingshan naturally had an advantage. Therefore, the Six Legged Bladelike had learned its lesson. “You, a human, wish to fight me? Sure, let’s go outside!” (This was what the Six Legged Bladelike Chi thought.)
The area outside the cave was spacious, and in this spacious area, the Six Legged Bladelike Chi was at a advantageous position. It could ravage Teng Qingshan easily.
“Hmph.” Teng Qingshan grinned as he held the Reincarnation Spear. Then he transformed into a streak of lightning and darted onto the path.
After the colossal body of the Six Legged Bladelike Chi darted out of the mountain wall, a human figure, much smaller than it was, darted out like lightning.
Teng Qingshan stood on a branch of a tree while the Six Legged Bladelike Chi floated amidst the forest. A faint cold glint flashed in the extremely small, black pupils on the triangular head of the Six Legged Bladelike Chi.
“During the previous fights outside, I have been in a disadvantageous position. However, this time…” Suddenly, Teng Qingshan’s entire body and the surface of his clothes were covered with a layer of earthy yellow. His head was also covered, and only a pair of eyes could be seen. It was though he was wearing a full suit of battle armor!
The Six Legged Bladelike Chi was astonished. Its two pairs of wings vibrated slightly, and the Six Legged Bladelike Chi ascended slightly.
It could tell that the human before its eyes had grown more powerful.
“Roar~~~” The Six Legged Bladelike Chi roared forcefully, and its two pairs of wings fluttered simultaneously. In an instant, the Six Legged Bladelike Chi, especially its two pairs of wings which were as thin as a cicada’s wings but extremely trenchant, transformed into a streak of golden flowing light. As the Six Legged Bladelike Chi flew in the forest, its wings slashed past the trees. It was as though those trees were had been slashed by a colossal and sharp blade!
The several dozen thick and strong trees collapsed, but the cross sections of those trees were all smooth and neat.
“Haha…” Teng Qingshan laughed and leaped forcefully into the air.
Simultaneously, he grabbed the Reincarnation Spear and lifted it up high as though he was lifting an axe. The instant before he clashed with the Six Legged Bladelike Chi, Teng Qingshan lashed out forcefully with the Reincarnation Spear. Teng Qingshan’s left and right hands were aligned with one at the top and one at the bottom (back-to-back), as he gripped the spear shaft and swung the Reincarnation Spear forward, slashing furiously—
The entire spear shaft illuminated with an earthy yellow glow.
“Roar~~~” Six Legged Bladelike Chi roared, and the two enormous sickle-like legs slashed toward Teng Qingshan.
Teng Qingshan slashed his Reincarnation Spear forward as well!
The instant the two clashed, Teng Qingshan’s right and left hand exerted an explosive strength.
The energy flew in all directions, causing trees to collapse, while Teng Qingshan and the Six Legged Bladelike Chi flew apart.
The powerful and strange force caused the two of the Six Legged Bladelike Chi’s legs to bend. Simultaneously, the force applied on its legs transmitted to its body. This caused the Six Legged Bladelike Chi to knock down over ten thick and strong trees before it finally came to a stop. A green liquid trickled out unexpectedly from the corner of the mouth on its triangular head, and astonishment and fear could be seen within the tiny black pupils in its pair of enormous eyes.
Meanwhile, Teng Qingshan had flown backwards. Then with a flip, he landed on the branch of a tree.
When he saw the bloodstain on the corner of the Six Legged Bladelike Chi’s mouth, Teng Qingshan revealed a smile and said, “Yes! The power of the fifth technique of the Five Elemental Spear Arts, Slashing Mountain, is not bad.”
