Chapter 142 - Courting One’s Own Death
Nineteenth Level of Hell.
Inside the white browed elder’s house.
The old man looked curiously at Luo Tian as his white brows scrunched up. He then mumbled to himself with a puzzled expression: “Impossible, simply impossible. No matter how much of a genius he is, there’s no way he can break through two levels in a mere six hours.”
Six hours, two levels!
Even the human race’s number one genius Murong Wanjian wasn’t able to accomplish this.
Not to mention Murong Wanjian, there wasn’t a single human in the entire history of the continent capable of accomplishing this!
Cultivating and breaking through a single level was already extremely difficult. But this freak in front of him broke through two levels in six hours. Was he still even human?
Breaking through was like playing a game for him?
Or did his eyesight go bad and he’s actually looking at a ghost?
Seeing how the old man was staring at him strangely for so long, Luo Tian started unconsciously taking steps backward before saying: “Old man, what are you doing? You know that I’m no homo right?”
The white browed elder cleared this throat. He couldn’t endure the curiosity anymore and asked: “Kid, how did you do it?”
“It’s very simple.”
“I accomplished it by killing them.” Luo Tian chuckled and naturally wouldn’t explain he had a gaming system inside him. This was something he would never tell anyone because such a secret was too huge.
The old man rolled his eyes at Luo Tian.
Luo Tian smiled and asked: “Do you have anything else old man? If there’s nothing else, I still have to quickly make more breakthroughs.”
There was still a lot of undying guards.
They were all experience points and profound energy!
Wasting time here was no difference than wasting your life away.
Luo Tian was feeling a surge of emotions. Ever since he transmigrated to this new world, he has never experienced such a refreshed feeling. And leveling at this place made him feel simply beyond amazing!
Looking outside at the sea of undying guards, Luo Tian was a little impatient to get back out there.
The old man exhaled softly before saying: “Of course I have my reasons for having you come back. I have decided to pass the dispelling Gu skill to you, but you have to promise that it can never be passed to a third person. This also includes the refining Gu skill!”
After saying that, the old man looked at Luo Tian in a serious manner.
Luo Tian was astonished by this and immediately became happy. He then said: “I hereby swear to the heavens that I will never pass the skill to another person.”
Luo Tian then said to himself: “Even if I want to pass this skill to someone else, there’s no way I can accomplish it anyways.”
Luo Tian also wanted to pass his cultivation skills to the fatty, but whenever he tries to send it out through his intent, it would just disappear. The way he gained skills was different to how people of the Tianxuan Continent trained, so he was probably the only one in this world to cultivate like this.
According to the video game terminology, his skills were non tradable and cannot be dropped!
He can only use it himself.
“You must listen carefully to the following mantra...” The old man said in a serious manner out loud before saying inside his heart: “To all the ancestors of the earth’s core race: In order to kill the villainous traitor Yin Shang, this disciple Bai Mei will have to be unfilial. This person before me is of moral character and is kind-hearted, and also a great benefactor of the earth’s core race. I hope that the ancestors will understand why I’m doing this.”
The old man known as Bai Mei prayed in his heart before glancing left and right. After ascertaining that no one was around, he then started narrating to Luo Tian about the skill.
Luo Tian listened carefully to every single word said.
Ten minutes later...
The system gave off an alert tone.
“Congratulations to player Luo Tian for cultivating the Dispelling Gu skill!”
Luo Tian was secretly overjoyed. From here on out, he would be able to make better use of his refining Gu skill. Especially the one called Ecstasy Gu; he will definitely get proficient in that and make good use of it. Luo Tian’s thought had somehow started becoming perverted...
He was thinking how once he activated that specific Gu skill; wouldn’t his victim die from pleasure if he couldn’t stop it?
Thinking about one’s manhood over exhausted until it shriveled up, Luo Tian felt a sudden chill on the back of his neck. Now that he had the dispelling Gu skill, such a thing would no longer need to be feared.
“Have you remembered everything clearly?” The old man asked.
Luo Tian nodded: “En!”
Bai Mei looked seriously at Luo Tian and asked with doubt: “You managed to remember everything even though I’ve only narrated it once? Apart from being fast at cultivation breakthroughs, could your comprehension speed also be extremely fast too? Are you even considered human?”
Luo Tian grinned and said: “There’s nothing I can do about it. When one is born good looking like me, learning things naturally come faster as well. Old man, if you don’t believe me, you can teach me a few more of your earth’s core race’s forbidden arts and see if I can memorize all of them.”
“You damn kid, quit trying to trick me out of anymore martial skill mantras.” Bai Mei no longer suspected Luo Tian upon seeing his current expression. His heart was filled with shock as he said to himself: “Sure enough, this kid is truly not ordinary. Maybe he can really save our earth’s core race, and perhaps… he may really be the person mentioned in the prophecy!”
“I really wish this was true!”
Bai Mei started sighing in his heart.
“I’ve already passed the dispelling Gu skill to you so when do you plan on saving those two?” Asked the old man in a helpless manner.
It wouldn’t be too difficult to save them with Luo Tian’s current spiritual strength.
The old man thought Luo Tian would begin immediately but Luo Tian was lost in thought before asking: “Old man, do you know when Yin Shang will come down again to look for you?”
Bai Mei replied: “Seven days later will be when our earth’s core race worships the heavens. Before the day of worship, he will definitely come down to take your three away. Why are you asking about this? And what does this have to do with saving those two?”
“The Gu insect inside them aren’t as strong as yours, but you still shouldn’t delay it for too long. The longer you drag it out, the harder it will be to remove it.”
Luo Tian nodded: “I understand.”
Luo Tian quickly ran out of the house to continue killing in the corpse sea. A series of Myriad Thunder Roar descended and a whole bunch of corpses toppled over.
The whole Nineteenth Level of Hell was enveloped in the sounds of thunder.
Bai Mei was dumbfounded as he couldn’t figure out what Luo Tian was doing. Watching Luo Tian’s demon like figure, he started mumbling to himself: “What on earth is this kid up to? How come I can’t figure it out at all?”
Apart from killing all these incomplete undying guards, Luo Tian also had to do something very important - raise the level of the dispelling Gu skill.
There’s a certain danger involved when dispelling Gu.
And it was dangerous for both parties.
Since his dispelling Gu skill level was so low, Luo Tian didn’t dare to save them yet. Only when he had enough confidence would he attempt it, or else he’d rather not even try.
The corpse sea was an environment that satisfied his needs. Each of these zombies here had a Gu insect inside their brains and was the ideal test subjects to practice the dispelling Gu skill. Before the next round of Myriad Thunder Roar’s descended, Luo Tian’s spiritual energy started moving to perform his dispelling Gu.
“Success! Proficiency rate +2.”
There were successes and there were failures; the whole process was unpredictable.
Luo Tian was rather anxious in his heart because seven days was just too short. If he could dispel the Gu poison in those two, the chance of killing Yin Shang would increase quite a bit. That’s why Luo Tian was trying to save them.
Someone at the peak of the Profound Spirit 9th rank was simply too strong.
He needed the help of those two!
After a full night and day, Luo Tian didn’t stop his training or pause to rest.
He had finally leveled the dispelling Gu skill to level 3!
His rate of success had reached 60%, and he had reached a 100% success rate when dispelling rank 1 Gu insects!
The moment he leveled up, Luo Tian rushed towards the direction of the white browed elder’s house.
Off at a distance, Luo Tian observed the white browed elder lying on the ground covered in blood. Next to him was a large sturdy looking guy with a pair of hammers angrily screaming at the old man.
The corner of Luo Tian’s eye twitched as killing intent was hiddenly building up within him. He then coldly harrumphed: “You’re courting your own death!”
