The crowd turned their heads and suddenly became quiet, not daring to make a sound. Even those elders in the hall suddenly became humble, saying, "Fairy, your esteemed arrival to the Xiao Family. What can we do for you..."
It was Mu Chengxue. She ignored everyone and only looked at Xiao Chen, saying, "I'm leaving."
Xiao Chen knew that she must come here to say something to him, and walked to her, whispering, "Let's talk outside."
The two people left the hall under the crowd's surprising eyes. In the square, Xiao Chen said, "Miss Mu, thank you very much."
Mu Chengxue shook her head and said, "Do you need me to warn them to not make things difficult for you in the future?"
Xiao Chen shook his head and said with a bitter smile, "No, thanks." Warning them would not help. After she left, those people would still do what they wanted to do.
"Do you need me to give you a layer of Mystic Skill? I don't know what your Onefold or Twofold means, but this layer of Mystic Skill can make sure that you are invincible in a month." Mu Chengxue looked at him and continued.
Xiao Chen knew why she wanted to help him this much because he once was a Cultivator too. He clearly knew that a Cultivator had to finish karma, otherwise, there would be consequences in his future cultivating. In the worst case, she would have an Inner Demon which would possess her and then lead her into the Devil's Practice.
Helping her break through the formation in that day was the Cause, while helping him in return was the Effect. If she could not finish the karma, she would definitely fail to Survive the Ordeal, and eventually, she would become a Rogue Immortal. Xiao Chen said, "Miss Mu, you don't owe me anything, really."
Mu Chengxue did not reply. Having walked for a few moments, she stopped and said, "Do you really want to cultivate, even if this will kill you someday in the future and make you doomed eternally."
Xiao Chen smiled and said bitterly, "I wish someone can kill me now. There's no need to wait."
"Alas, take it or leave it. It'll be hopeless for me to become an Immortal if I can't finish this karma..." Mu Chengxue sighed and suddenly punched at his chest.
"Puff!" Xiao Chen spurted out a mouthful of blood as he was sent flying. This punch almost broke all of his bones and muscles. The Xiao Family disciples shouted as they did not know what happened.
However, it was not over yet. Mu Chengxue infused 11 streams of Palm Strength into his body.
Xiao Chen could only hear some vague words, "Since I was a child, I'm able to see something that the others can't. You do have Spiritual Meridians, and you have full 12 Spiritual Meridians. It's just somebody had sealed them after your birth, and your Destiny was forcibly changed by some supreme magic power..."
"I now have spent 30% of my Life Span to unseal your Spiritual Meridians. It's on to you to change your Destiny. By the way, this Human World doesn't fit you. Come to Violet Manor someday. Maybe only in the Violet Manor can you solve the questions in your heart..."
When Xiao Chen heard the last word, he finally lost consciousness. When he woke up, he found himself lying on the bed with his father beside, who clearly had not slept for some days.
Xiao Yifan wept with joy upon seeing his son's waking up. Xiao Chen felt his head heavy and dizzy. In his dreams, he seemed to have heard Mu Chengxue's words many times. "You do have Spiritual Meridians. It's just somebody had sealed them after your birth..."
"Father, I'm fine now. Where's Miss Mu? Is she gone?" He got up and asked eagerly because he still had so many questions for Mu Chengxue.
"Is her surname Mu? Why did she hurt you that day?" Xiao Yifan also asked eagerly.
Xiao Chen shook his head and said, "No, she was not hurting me. She helped me..."
At this moment, he suddenly felt a faint fluctuation of Spiritual Qi around. This is the Spiritual Qi from heaven and earth that he was so familiar with back then!
He was extremely excited. When he saw his father's haggard face, he said, "I'm okay now, father. You must be tired, please go back and take some rest."
Xiao Yifan was still a bit concerned about his son. Although Xiao Chen's injuries used to cure themselves for no reason, he was hurt by an Immortal!
"I'm fine now, really. Don't worry about me anymore, father." Xiao Chen shook his head and said. He now really wanted to know if he really could feel the Spiritual Qi, and he had to do some qi circulation.
"Well, I'll let you take some rest then. I'll come by later."
Xiao Yifan sighed and left. At the door, he suddenly turned around and looked like he wanted to say something. Xiao Chen frowned and said, "Anything else, father?"
Xiao Yifan smiled and said, "It's okay. Uhh... The marriage between you and Huangfu Xin'er may be..." His voice dropped gradually.
"What about the marriage?" Xiao Chen asked, frowning.
"Nothing. You have a good rest." Xiao Yifan smiled and went out of the room.
Xiao Chen's eyebrows relaxed. Huangfu Family was one of the four major families, and the marriage between him and Huangfu Xin'er was made a long time ago. However, since Huangfu Family knew that he could not practice martial arts, they intended to cancel this marriage. Although they had not mentioned this issue in these years, they showed less courtesy to Xiao Family.
But this did not matter now. It's important to make sure if he really can cultivate now. He then immediately jumped up from the bed, rushed to the courtyard, sat down cross-legged, and started to run the Mystic Cyan Cultivation Method.
In a flash, the Spiritual Qi around him rushed into his body as if a heavy rain met a long-drought land. The 12 Spiritual Meridians glowed a faint white radiance.
"Hahaha..." Xiao Chen burst out laughing. "It's back! It's finally back!"
He then clenched his fist so tight that even cracked knuckles. Mu Chengxue's words rose in him again. Somebody deliberately sealed his Spiritual Meridian and even changed his Destiny. Who made him suffer for 16 years? He really wanted to tear that person apart into pieces now!
Mu Chengxue even spent 30% of her Life Span to save him. The Life Span was something more precious than a human's life. A human's life had a limit, and Cultivators too.
To become an Immortal, a Cultivator had to reach the next Realm in a limited period of time. If he failed to do so, he would lose the chance to become an Immortal in this life, and he had to spend the Fortune with an amount of a lifetime to go through the Samsara. Of course, he could not do this forever. When his Fortune ran out, his soul would completely vanish.
Xiao Chen let out a long sigh. It took 30% of Mu Chengxue's Life Span to get her karma even. She did not owe him anymore, but he owed her now. This was another karma, and he had to finish it himself in the future.
Flowers were blooming in the courtyard, and the breeze made Xiao Chen feel comfortable. He pondered for a moment and decided to reach Lv 1 Qi Refining Realm first.
He then continued to run the Mystic Cyan Cultivation Method. Mystic Cyan Sect was claimed to be the strongest sect in the Immortal's Practice, and its cultivation methods were so mystic and excellent. He had already borne those rhymes and pithy formulas in mind, so he did not even need to recall them as if the method could run itself.
One hour later, his body reached an excellent state. Now, even if he closed his eyes, he could still feel everything around him. He clearly saw those daffodils by the pond dancing with the wind and sending ripples on water. He clearly saw those carps got startled and quickly dived deep.
This was exactly a Cultivator unleashing his Divine Sense and observe the surroundings with his heart.
A moment later, Xiao Chen opened his eyes and stood up slowly. It normally took ordinary human months and even years to cultivate from Body Refining Realm to Lv 1 Qi Refining Realm. But with 12 Spiritual Meridians and his mastery of the Mystic Cyan Cultivation Method, it only took him less than one hour.
At this point, he just felt infinite power in his body. While slightly running the method, a stroke of white radiance from by True Qi appeared in his palm. He then slapped downward with that palm. The white radiance turned into a golden dragon and dashed to the ground. An earthshattering dragon roar resounded above Xiao Family.
It was like a volcano that had slept for a thousand years. When it erupted, it was unstoppable. The entire courtyard and half of the mountain started to shake. If he let this palm strength spread, it would instantly ravage this Purple Bine Pavilion. Xiao Chen led it toward a wall, which then instantly collapsed under the impact of the Palm Strength. The dust flew about for a long time.
This was Dragon Roar Palm, a basic palm style of the Mystic Cyan Sect. The Dragon Roar Palm had nine styles, and this was only the first one.
The dragon roar went away like muffled thunder. Many elders who were practicing martial arts felt this fierce power and immediately locked the source of it. They then rushed to the Purple Bine Pavilion.
They were all shocked when they saw several deep cracks on the ground, the completely collapsed wall, and Xiao Chen who stood among the scattering broken stones with his clothes dancing with the wind.
