Chapter 2 Sword Crystal
The color of the sky gradually began to darken. Lu Xuan lied on the ground, still motionless, looking as if he was dead.
After many hours had passed, Lu Xuan finally let out a painful groan, slowly waking up.
He was very lucky. At least in the past few hours, there hadn’t been any beasts that had passed by.
As he tried to move his limbs, a sharp pain passed by. Lu Xuan couldn’t help but let out a stifled groan. Although he had been in a coma for this period of time, he could guess what Long Yang had done. After checking his body, he discovered that he wasn’t missing any parts. Lu Xuan let out a breath. It wasn’t too bad.
The Long family’s servants had really hit heavily. They had hit so that everywhere hurt. Lu Xuan knew that in the near future, it would become difficult to walk, much less participate in the assessment.
Thinking about this, he helplessly laughed. Could this be heaven’s will? Right now, his injuries were so heavy that even his last hope had been extinguished.
At this time, the sky had become completely black. Today’s weather didn’t seem to very good. There wasn’t even a star in the sky. He faced his head upward as he lied down on the cold hard ground. Lu Xuan’s eyes shifted as he looked into the night sky, his mind in shambles.
Suddenly, there was a ray of light that streaked through the air, appearing in Lu Xuan’s line of sight.
It is said that if you tie a knot when you see a meteor, your wish will come true.
Lu Xuan subconsciously reached to grab something to tie into a knot, but let out a groan again. He forgot that his whole body was injured and that his hand couldn’t move, much less tie a knot.
At this time, Lu Xuan was suddenly startled. That wasn’t right, today there were no stars, how could there be a meteor?
He lifted his head again to look, and discovered that the “meteor” had become larger, and was actually still getting larger…
This thing was actually headed right towards him! Lu Xuan was greatly shaken! At that speed, if it really arrived at his location, wouldn’t that be an immediate death? Where would there be a path for survival?
He wanted to dodge, but even his pinky couldn’t move at this time, how could he dodge.
This “meteor” was getting closer and closer. This time, Lu Xuan finally saw its shape. Shockingly it had a sword-shaped light.
The sword-shaped light’s speed was incredibly fast. Just a few moment after Lu Xuan had seen it, it had already arrived in front of Lu Xuan’s eyes.
By this time, Lu Xuan had finally discovered that the thing emitting this sword-shaped light wasn’t a sword, but was a not very large sword-shaped crystal.
What was this thing? Who sent it out?
As these thoughts had just flashed through his mind, the sword-shaped crystal had already hit Lu Xuan’s body. At the moment when Lu Xuan thought that his body had been punctured by this sword-shaped crystal, strangely, when the crystal made contact with Lu Xuan’s skin, it instantly melted into his body, and then entered into Lu Xuan’s dantian, then once again reformed.
Having survived what seemed like certain death, Lu Xuan still didn’t have time to rejoice. The sword crystal that had invaded into his body unexpectedly shot out a sharp sword qi, starting from Lu Xuan’s dantian, it spread out to the rest of his body, stabbing all of Lu Xuan’s meridians.
“Ah!” As the piercing pain passed through, Lu Xuan couldn’t hold it in and let out a very loud tragic scream that spread throughout the wilderness. It seemed very strange.
The pain in his body had not decreased but had instead become more intense.
The scattered sword qi kept moving through Lu Xuan’s meridians, breaking through layers and layers of obstacles. This kind of torture was the world’s greatest pain.
For everyone who is born, at the start, most people will have blocked off meridians, although some, their meridians were completely open. Those people were called geniuses.
Due the fact that on Sky Sword Continent there was a mysterious force that experts called soul force, how clear the meridians were affected the speed and efficiency of soul force absorption, thus determining how talented one was at cultivating.
And in fact, during cultivation, there is a process that opens up the meridians. The more open the meridians are, the higher the realm one could reach.
An innate born clear meridians person, not only would they not have to clear their meridians, but they would have a very fast cultivation speed. If they wanted to reach a high realm, they could reach it almost unimpeded.
And if one’s talent wasn’t good, for those who were born with blocked meridians, if they wanted to reach a higher realm, they needed to cultivate more slowly, slowly clearing their meridians. For this reason, most people in their entire lives would not be able to clear their meridians.
At this time, the sword qi was forcing itself through Lu Xuan’s meridians. It should be known that every person’s talents were determined at birth. This was truly going against heaven!
Under normal circumstances, people who had their meridians forced through would in the end have their meridians burst and they would die, otherwise, all of the experts in Sky Sword Continent would help their sons and nephews clear their meridians, raising their talent.
Under the tremendous pain, Lu Xuan had no room to think of anything else. He felt as if his meridians exploding and dying would be more comfortable then right now.
But the strange thing was, this sword qi, although it kept breaking through Lu Xuan’s blocked meridians, Lu Xuan’s meridians showed no signs of damage.
In fact, the places where his meridians were blocked became wider. If things continued this way… his meridians would be cleared, as if someone had artificially cleared it.
Lu Xuan simply didn’t have the mental capacity to check his body’s situation. At that moment, his head only had one word in it, which was pain. From youth till now, even during the most bitter of times when cultivating, Lu Xuan still hadn’t experienced such pain.
His tragic scream became softer and softer, not because he wanted it to, but because his throat had become hoarse from the screams and could no longer scream.
The sword qi let out by the sword crystal obviously didn’t care about how Lu Xuan felt. It continued to travel through his body’s meridians. Part of the power penetrated into the meridians.
The torturous process lasted for nearly an hour. After the sword qi had cleared the last meridian blockage, it moved in a large circle, and then finally returned to within the sword crystal. Everything was calm.
Was it finally over? Lu Xuan desperately gasped for breath, his line of sight was scattered. He slowly gathered himself. He had no doubt that if this pain had continued for another period of time, he was afraid that he really have died from the pain.
During this hour of struggle, Lu Xuan had exhausted all of his strength. His forehead, cheeks, and body were drenched in sweat.
But he wasn’t concerned about that. Having survived that kind of pain, he was already thanking god. A few large drops of sweat rolled down his face. In order to not let it into his eye, Lu Xuan used some effort to raise his left hand to wipe his face.
But then, as Lu Xuan moved, raising his left hand before his eyes, there was disbelief in his eyes as he viewed his hand.
He clearly remembered that just before, he couldn’t even move a finger, but now, he could wipe off his sweat!
To make sure there wasn’t a mistake, Lu Xuan couldn’t help but try to exercise both hands. His hands nimbly moved. After that he got up. In his entire body, there wasn’t even a trace of discomfort.
Lu Xuan was finally sure. His injuries received from Long Yang had miraculously healed!
Calling it a miracle would be wrong. Lu Xuan knew that there was an 80-90% chance that it was the work of the mysterious sword-shaped crystal. There really was a rainbow after the storm. The ancients truly haven’t bullied me!
A happy face uncontrollably flashed by Lu Xuan’s face. He had originally thought that heaven wanted to crush his last hope. He hadn’t thought that, there’s always a way out. Despite the torture just now that was so painful he was going to die, but if he had known earlier that it could heal his injuries, then no matter what, Lu Xuan would grit his teeth and bear it.
Long Yang, Long Tai! Even if you guys have a backer behind you, so what? I will definitely pass the Wind Sword Sect assessment! As long as I live another day, you guys shouldn’t thing of succeeding!
Since his injuries were all good, Lu Xuan once again gushed out fighting spirit!
There were fifteen days until the assessment. Fifteen days, it was neither a long time nor a short time. If it was taken advantage of, his strength could possibly increase a step again.
Thing about this, Lu Xuan crossed his legs and began to circulating, seizing the time for cultivation.
After the torment just now, Lu Xuan was already exhausted, but he knew, this sort of situation would facilitate cultivating twice as fast with half the effort. Since his innate talent wasn’t that high, then he could only fight using effort.
Circulating his cultivation method , there a slight trace of soul force that was sucked into Lu Xuan’s body. At the same time, he also looked internally. The first thing he saw was the sword-shaped crystal that had almost killed him.
At this time, the sword crystal was slowly rotating in Lu Xuan’s dantian, no longer violent as before.
Although he didn’t understand the sword crystal’s origins, Lu Xuan felt like it definitely had an extraordinary background. Also, it had previously miraculously healed his injuries. That fact cemented Lu Xuan’s thinking.
But thinking about the inhuman pain, he also had a chilling feeling. He didn’t dare to provoke the sword crystal at all, so he let it sit quietly in his dantian. Taking care of circulating his cultivation method , the soul force that entered his body slowly circulated through his meridians.
As he circulated the cultivation method , the atmosphere’s soul force was sucked into Lu Xuan’s body in a steady stream, flowing through his meridians in a particular path.
But once he started circulating the cultivation method, Lu Xuan became even more surprised because he discovered today his soul force absorption rate was suddenly many times faster than before!
Before all his meridians were blocked, and now they had become very smooth.
