The hunchbacked man took the scroll and unfurled it. He frowned as he looked at the black metal piece painting.
The elegant man continued, “This black metal piece doesn’t have any illustrations or text, but it possesses a mighty Godfiend aura. It’s much stronger than the remnant auras of a typical Godfiend legacy. We are ultimately mortals and limited in our knowledge. I’m afraid we might miss out on a treasure.”
“Then buy it.” The hunchbacked man frowned as he looked at the picture.
“The Blood Cloud Bandits want 100,000 taels of silver, not one tael less,” said the elegant man respectfully.
“What the heck? One hundred thousand taels for something we have no idea about? The Blood Cloud Bandits have really gone crazy.” The hunched man shook his head. “Alright, I’m aware of this matter. You may leave.”
“Then, do we buy it?” the elegant man asked.
“Are you paying for it?” The hunchbacked man glared.
“I understand,” said the elegant man respectfully. “I won’t make decisions on my own.” He immediately led the silver-haired elder away.
The two vice branch masters of the Eastcalm Branch had strange tempers, and their subordinates were quite afraid of them. On the contrary, the branch master was a lot more worthy of respect.
What the hell? So what if it’s a Godfiend legacy? We can’t accept a Godfiend legacy if we cultivate the Skydemon Dao. The hunchbacked man looked at the scroll in his hand and scoffed. He then threw it to the maidservant beside him. “When Second Brother Tu and Branch Master exit seclusion, let them take a look.”
“Yes,” said the maid respectfully.
After completing his cultivation and taking a medicinal bath, Meng Chuan’s spirit and body were restored to their peak states.
He came to his small courtyard and began the fourth part of his daily cultivation—Ultimate Saber Drawing Stance! Over the past year, he had pushed his Quintessential Energy to its limits every day, allowing his meridians to adapt slowly. His Godfiend body was very adaptable, and his meridians were very resilient as well. He could instantly unleash twelve times the amount of Quintessential Energy now that his meridians were wider and stronger.
The might of his attacks came from the combination of his technique, physical body, and his Quintessential Energy, and body potential to ultimately release tremendous might.
The strength of his saber art only doubled despite using twelve times the Quintessential Energy. In the past, this could be considered a killer move under the premise of not damaging one’s body! Meng Chuan was unwilling to use certain forbidden Godfiend arts. For example, the eldest son of the Yun family—Yun Fucheng—had used a forbidden technique without any preparation. Thus, damaging his foundation and leaving him with no hope of becoming a Godfiend.
Now that I have the Power of the Soul, I can try to push the limits of the Ultimate Saber Drawing Stance even further. His eyes lit up.
Following that, he focused his mind. With a powerful will, the invisible Power of the Soul immediately fused with his entire body. Quintessential Energy began to slowly flow through his meridians, organs, bones, and blood. All his senses heightened, and his control over his body immediately rose to an inconceivable level.
He was shocked by this feeling every time.
When would he be able to control his body to such extents without the aid of his Power of the Soul?
In an instant, fifteen times his Quintessential Energy erupted. Under the guidance of his Power of the Soul, the Quintessential Energy remained tolerable to his meridians. His body began to form large amounts of lightning, several times more than the usual density. When the lightning formed within his body, Meng Chuan’s speed reached an unimaginable level. Speed was the strength of his Lightning Divine Body. As he dug deeper into his body’s potential, his speed increased to a ludicrous degree.
Even his strength—which was one of his weaker traits—had increased several times.
A resplendent saber beam streaked across the sky as it tore through the air. The saber beam flew dozens of feet and struck the stone wall, leaving behind a mark.
The Power of the Soul disappeared, immediately stopping its insane expenditure. By only using the Power of the Soul when delivering an attack, he would use less of it up.
This attack expended about twenty percent of my Power of the Soul. Meng Chuan nodded slightly. It looks like five killer moves are my limit. Let’s try again.
He wanted to familiarize himself with his strongest killer move. He stared ahead, as though there was a demon in front of him. He wanted to slay this demon and to do so needed strong killing intent. Only by uniting his body and mind would the fusion be deeper.
He unleashed another terrifying saber beam.
He pursued the limits and perfection. When the Power of the Soul fused with his entire body, he tried to find a way to dig out more of his body’s potential. He felt like his body was like a massive iceberg, and what he dug out so far was just the tip of the iceberg. According to the Godfiend biographies, even the most powerful Godfiends wouldn’t dare say that they had already excavated their body’s potential to the limits.
As cultivation continued, one’s physical body would grow stronger.
He found the joy of not holding back absolutely delightful. With the addition of his Power of the Soul, he was even more absorbed with his training.
His strength converged as he prepared to strike. When he delivered a strike, all his strength would be unleashed under the Power of the Soul’s guidance. His will was like a blade, and the moment he struck out, he could kill all demons!
Boom! A terrifying aura coalesced around Meng Chuan’s body. His entire body seemed to become a saber. His body and Quintessential Energy united perfectly under the guidance of the “Force,” resulting in an even more terrifying eruption.
The saber flashed, leaving behind a crescent moon in the air. It was soul-stirring.
The saber beam was too fast, and the high-pressure slash formed a very sharp saber beam. It tore through the yard wall that was dozens of feet away, causing the wall to collapse.
Following that, he sheathed his saber and stood upright.
This is Force? Meng Chuan was rather surprised. He had predicted that he would be able to gain insights into Force within days, but he hadn’t expected to achieve Force as he was fusing the Power of the Soul with the Ultimate Saber Drawing Stance today. He had achieved Force with his fourth strike.
There were many descriptions regarding Force in the books. However, no matter how descriptive, he would only be able to understand Force the moment he grasped it.
Everything in the world had Force—mountains, water, earth, wind, fire, and sky. Even the entire world… had a Force! A truly powerful saber art required a Saber Force. With Saber Force, one would be like a saber. Under the control of the Saber Force, one’s body’s potential would be excavated deeper. One would even be able to use the Heaven and Earth powers to augment themselves.
Under the command of Force, one’s mastery of Quintessential Energy would become more exquisite. This allowed one to release Quintessential Energy outside their bodies when fighting.
What’s going on? This is Force?
Inside the Mirror Lake Meng Manor, Meng Dajiang and Liu Yebai rushed out of their rooms in shock. They all felt a Force appear within their manor. This made them panic because they knew that they were the only ones in the manor that had achieved Force. For a third person to suddenly use Force in the middle of the night? There was a high chance that the person was an intruder.
An enemy sneaked in? Or did he figure out Force? It’s from Chuan’er’s residence. Meng Dajiang and Liu Yebai were both anxious as they rushed over.
In the blink of an eye, the two of them rushed into Meng Chuan’s courtyard and saw him standing still dazedly with his saber sheathed. One of the walls of the courtyard had collapsed, and rubble was everywhere.
“Might I know which friend has come to my Meng Manor? Please show yourself!” Meng Dajiang immediately shouted when he saw this.
“I didn’t notice him; he’s quite good at hiding.” Liu Yebai secretly sent a voice transmission. “But he didn’t hurt Meng Chuan, so he probably isn’t hostile.”
Both of them were very cautious.
“Dad, Uncle Liu, there’s no one else.” After regaining his senses from embracing his achievement of Saber Force, Meng Chuan hurriedly informed Meng Dajiang and Liu Yebai.
“There’s no one else?” Meng Dajiang and Liu Yebai were both stunned.
“That unfamiliar Force just now was…?” Meng Dajiang looked at his son and had a bold guess in his heart! No, no, no. I must be overthinking things.
Meng Chuan nodded in acknowledgment. “I figured out the Saber Force.”
