Cheeky Sword God - Chapter 10
Seeing Wu Chi’s elixir, Luo Kun despises him even more, and he grunted impatiently.
“Enough, I called you here not to listen to this stuff.”
“Oh, this isn’t what you wanted?” Wu Chi answered with grievance and carefully collected his elixir back.
Luo Kun had no patience to dally with him, and directly asked: “It is said that these days, you have been practicing the sword with Zhou Boyan, and she even taught you the Shadow Sword Technique.”
“Bah! What Shadow Sword Technique? I think she’s just playing with me. I used a lot of effort to make her teach me because I thought that the sword technique was very powerful but after learning it from her, the sword technique doesn’t seem to be powerful at all! So I don’t think what she taught me was the Shadow Sword Technique.”
Wu Chi shook his head, and bitterly complained, “That girl looks like a simple person on the surface. But, she is, in fact, very scheming.”
Luo Kun directly ignored this series of unnecessary complaints.
What he cared about was whether Wu Chi had learned the Shadow Sword Technique or not.
“Show me the sword technique, I can verify for you if the sword technique you learned is the Shadow Sword Technique or not.”
Hearing this, Wu Chi diverted his eyes from Luo Kun and replied, “Erm… Brother Luo, it’s not that I don’t want to show you the sword technique but my strength is really low, and I can’t remember the sword technique clearly.”
Speaking, Wu Chi cautiously looked at Luo Kun’s face, and then went on to say, “Well, maybe my talent is too bad. I can’t understand the profundity of the sword technique. She said that the Shadow Sword Technique is the key to gaining the recognition of the Shadow.”
Luo Kun’s eyes lit up. He was finally moved.
“Show me the sword technique! Don’t worry, if the sword technique is really the Shadow Sword Technique, I’ll reward you handsomely.”
“Of course!” While nodding his head, Wu Chi’s eyes slightly narrowed.
“But… Brother Luo, my memory is really bad, I really can’t remember the sword technique now. Maybe I should go learn it again and come back tomorrow to show the sword technique to you?”
Wu Chi’s intentions were instantly revealed.
Luo Kun became impatient, turned his wrist, and took out a jade bottle.
“Here is a Marrow Cleansing Elixir! You can easily break through from Marrow Cleansing to Transcendent Mortal with the help of this elixir! All you have to do is to show me the Shadow Sword Technique, and this elixir will be yours.”
Wu Chi stared at the tiny jade bottle with red eyes.
Compared with the Marrow Cleansing Elixir, those body-tempering elixirs were garbage! Only a prestigious school like Tian Shan could bring out this kind of elixir.
“Aha, excuse my poor memory! In fact, I can still remember the sword technique, only a little bit though, should I show you the sword technique now?”
Luo Kun snorted, and didn’t bother speaking.
With the Marrow Cleansing Elixir, Wu Chi’s ‘memory’ instantly improved.
He took out the sword from his waist, and began to show the Shadow Sword Technique. Although this sword technique was clumsy, people can still outline what kind of sword technique Wu Chi was showing.
Others had watched Wu Chi’s sword technique for fun, but under the eye of an expert, this sword technique was soon recognized by someone.
Of course, this expert was none other than Luo Kun.
With Luo Kun’s insight, almost at the moment when Wu Chi had just begun his move, he could already confirm that this sword technique must be the Shadow Sword Technique.
When Wu Chi had finished his sword technique, Luo Kun suddenly stood up and stared at Wu Chi intently.
“Brother Luo, as you can see, this is all I can remember.”
At the same time, Wu Chi’s eyes hardly ever moved from the jade bottle on the table.
Luo Kun swept his sleeves, and the jade bottle came flying at Wu Chi.
He then said in a deep voice, “Today, stay here and pass all the Shadow Sword Technique remaining moves to me. I will certainly reward you for this matter.”
“That…” Wu Chi seemed to have something to say, but it looked like he was feeling guilty, and he swallowed his next words.
“Didn’t you hear what Brother Luo had said?” Deng Mao sheathed his sword and directly threatened Wu Chi.
“How is that possible? It’s a blessing to me to be able to do something for Brother Luo, I’m just overjoyed.” Wu Chi answered with a smile. He immediately changed the topic and took a step back..
When Wu Chi had left, it was already late at night, and besides the Marrow Cleansing Elixir, he also took away 120 taels of gold.
A sneer rose from the corner of his lips, Wu Chi strode into the night.
“Such an idiot! Even if I had seriously teached you, do you really think that the Shadow Sword Technique can be easily learned? Do you also think that it’s easy to gain the sword’s recognition? What’s more, did you really think that I will teach you everything?”
Wu Chi deliberately stumbled a lot while performing his sword technique. When teaching the sword technique to Luo Kun, Wu Chi tore down several parts of the sword technique with the notion of him not remembering the sword technique clearly.
By this way, Luo Kun couldn’t really learn the Shadow Sword Technique, but because Wu Chi had tore down the sword technique into several messy parts, this created the impression that the sword technique was shrouded with mysteries, and made the person want to study it more.
Of course, for Wu Chi, the greatest advantage was that as long as Luo Kun still wanted to learn the Shadow Sword Technique, he wouldn’t kill him before he has completely learned the whole sword technique!
This was his own safety measure before he had come to Luo Kun.
As for the Marrow Cleansing Elixir and gold taels, those were just extras.
On the other side.
“Does this idiot really think that he can leave alive?”
His eyes flicked with murderous intent, Luo Kun sneered, “Of course, it’s obvious that I want to learn the Shadow Sword Technique, but did he think that I was going to let him live with the knowledge of the sword technique?”
“Just a coward. He thought he had received lots of benefits! Well, if he really was useless, I’d already have killed him.” Deng Mao shook his head and replied.
“Don’t worry. He will not be alive for long. The day of Zhou Yuanting’s burial is the day that he will die.” Luo Kun scornfully said, “Let people keep an eye on him. This sword technique is the real deal, if we can comprehend it, we can increase our chance of refining the Shadow.”
“In addition to the sword technique, the true value should still be the sword intent of the Shadow! Nevertheless, I’m afraid that with that kid’s talent, he may not even know what the sword intent is.”
“I don’t know what was going inside Miss Zhou’s mind. This important sword technique can even be taught to an outsider.”
Recalling Wu Chi’s sword technique, Deng Mao could not help exclaiming, “What’s more, to such a shameless person.”
“Maybe his flattery successfully lured her in. She’s the only daughter of Zhou Yuanting, and she might not know that people’s hearts are filled with evil. She’s just a foolish girl.” Shaking his head, Luo Kun continued, “When I get the divine sword, I will kill this kid in front of her.”
“Yes, although she is a little stupid, her beauty is a different matter. Her beauty can even lure you…” Laughing, Deng Mao added in.
“Brother Deng, are you also interested in…? Don’t worry, when the time comes, she will be our plaything.” Luo Kun said indifferently.
Without Zhou Yuanting’s protection, no matter how beautiful she was, she amounted to nothing more than a plaything in their eyes.
“Okay, this matter is not of importance, we should go ahead with our plan! Finding a way to get the Shadow is our first priority.”
In Wu Chi’s room.
After pouring out the Marrow Cleansing Elixir from the bottle, the room became filled with abundant spirit energy.
Looking at the elixir in his hand, Wu Chi could not help sigh.
If he didn’t choose to stay to deceive Luo Kun today, he was afraid that he would never have touched such elixir in his whole life.
Compared with the Iron Sword Group, Luo Kun, a disciple of Tian Shan, had everything.
Without hesitation, he happily swallowed the Marrow Cleansing Elixir, and he immediately began refining the elixir.
It had been too long since he was stuck in the Marrow Cleansing realm. In this situation, the more powerful he was, the more likely that he could survive. He couldn’t be lazy anymore.
But Wu Chi did not know that Luo Kun had no good intention when giving this elixir to him.
Although the elixir was precious, it could cause severe pain when it was taken alone. Usually you have to take this elixir with a pain-relieving drug.
If he couldn’t bear the pain during the refinement, the potency of the elixir can be greatly reduced, or in a worse case, his cultivation could be completely destroyed.
As the elixir was slowly refined by him, the terrible surge of spiritual storm rushed into Wu Chi’s body, and Wu Chi’s expression contorted in pain.
Over the years, his foundation was never strong to begin with, and now with the help of this elixir to refine his body and meridians, his entire foundation would undoubtedly be rebuilt.
It was for this reason that the pain would be much more excruciating than that of a normal person.
Of course, only when he had taken the elixir can he understand the gap between the disciples from an unknown school and those from a famous school like Tian Shan.
There was already such a huge difference in their foundation, no matter how high one’s realm is, the one with a weaker foundation would be weaker than their peers.
However, for Wu Chi, this pain was nothing.
This Marrow Cleansing Elixir was an opportunity he bought through gambling his life, how could he not seize this opportunity well?
It was nothing. Even if he were to face ten times the pain, he could also grind his teeth and persist.
It was true that Wu Chi was lazy, but he was never cowardly.
There was never a shortcut to practice!
He broke through the Marrow Cleansing stage overnight!
When Wu Chi reopened his eyes, the feeling of strength gave him a feeling of being isolated from the world.
The bottleneck that had been limiting him for so many years has finally been broken through!
From this moment on, Wu Chi really broke away from the shackles of ordinary people. He had become a true cultivator.
His clothes were painted with black blood from the purification of his marrow and his foundations were rebuilt.
Before today, Wu Chi had hardly thought of such an opportunity.
Successfully resisting the pain, Wu Chi naturally understood the danger behind the consumption of this elixir alone, and his heart became full of contempt.
“I was plotted against!”
The corner of his lips rose slightly, and Wu Chi looked out of the window at the dim light of the sky, whispering to himself.
“Luo Kun… I swear I’m going to kill you! Let’s see who will be the triumphant one!”
