Everybody fell silent. Meng Dajiang and Liu Yebai stared at Meng Chuan blankly, speechless.
A 16-year-old had comprehended the Force? A legendary genius was right in front of them?
Five patrolling guards also rushed to the small courtyard. They had also heard the wall collapsing, but their speed was clearly much slower than Meng Dajiang’s and Liu Yebai’s.
“Master,” said all five guards respectfully. The guard captain looked at the collapsed wall and couldn’t help but say, “This wall…”
“I was sparring with Chuan’er and accidentally damaged it.” Meng Dajiang returned to his senses and immediately instructed, “Arrange for someone to mend the walls tomorrow morning. Hurry up and leave.”
The five guards bowed respectfully and left. At the same time, they were rather perplexed. To destroy a wall in a sparring match? Master and Young Master sure are good at causing trouble.
Silence returned to the courtyard again. Meng Dajiang and Liu Yebai continued to stare at Meng Chuan.
“Dad, Uncle Liu.” Meng Chuan couldn’t help but say, “The two of you…”
“Dajiang, your son is extraordinary,” Liu Yebai whispered. “He figured out Force at the age of sixteen. Heavens, entering Archean Mountain is almost a certainty. If I had such a powerful son, I would wake up from my dreams in laughter!”
At this moment, Meng Dajiang suddenly thought of many things. His wife had instructed him to teach Meng Chuan personally while he practiced the saber. He had taught him every day since he was young, and the young Meng Chuan had trained seriously as well. His foundation was very solid, and he had taken one step at a time. When he was fifteen, he finally began to shine.
He had become the most outstanding member of the five Godfiend family clans.
At the age of sixteen, he had comprehended Force. This put him at the top of Eastcalm Prefecture.
Meng Dajiang’s eyes couldn’t help but redden. He knew very well how hardworking his son was. He smiled, and his eyes turned moist. “Very good, very good.”
“That’s all you can say?” Liu Yebai asked.
“Dad.” Meng Chuan looked at his father as well. He had been diligent in his cultivation. Apart from his oath to become a Godfiend to slay demons, he also wanted his father to feel proud. As a son, making his father proud was one of his desires.
Meng Dajiang smiled and immediately took out a flare. He triggered it, and the flare shot into the sky. It was very eye-catching in the dark.
The Meng family ancestral mansion.
“Oh?” Fairy Meng walked out of her building with her walking stick. She stared at the flare in the distant sky. She had personally given the distress flare to Meng Dajiang. It had her Quintessential Essence branding in it, allowing her to sense it once it was activated within fifty kilometers.
“Why would Dajiang suddenly request for help?” Although Fairy Meng was puzzled, she vanished from the yard.
In about half a minute, Fairy Meng arrived at Mirror Lake Meng Manor. She came to the small courtyard and saw the collapsed wall. She saw the father and son duo, as well as Liu Yebai.
“What happened?” Fairy Meng looked at the collapsed wall and felt a little puzzled. “Dajiang, you don’t seem to be suffering any injuries. Why did you suddenly request for help?”
She had only given only five people the distress flares; two people were Meng Chuan and Meng Dajiang.
“Aunt.” Meng Dajiang’s face was filled with uncontrollable joy. He whispered, “Chuan’er has figured out Saber Force.”
Fairy Meng was stunned for a moment before her eyes lit up. She looked at Meng Chuan and asked, “You have figured out Saber Force?”
“Yes, Grandaunt,” said Meng Chuan respectfully.
“Can you show it to me?” asked Fairy Meng.
Meng Chuan nodded his head and struck out with his palm. With the fusion of Saber Force, his Quintessential Energy cleaved out from his palm. A blurry saber beam that spanned ten feet in length sliced through the ground.
“Quintessential Energy Release.” Fairy Meng’s body trembled as she watched. Her eyes filled with excitement as she mumbled, “Great, great! Wonderful, just wonderful.”
Quintessential Energy was formless in the first place, so it couldn’t leave the body without a medium. But once Force guided it, it would be like a gentle stream of water forming a sharp “saber,” causing a qualitative change.𝑓𝙧𝚎𝑒𝔀𝙚𝑏𝑛𝑜vel. c૦m
More potential could be excavated if the body was fused with Saber Force.
Fairy Meng put down her walking stick and closed her eyes, muttering softly. “The ancestors have blessed us.”
Meng Chuan, Meng Dajiang, and Liu Yebai fell silent. They didn’t disturb Fairy Meng.
“Meng Chuan.” Fairy Meng opened her eyes and sat down on a stone bench. She smiled and said, “Come, have a seat.”
Meng Chuan sat down on the stone bench obediently.
Fairy Meng looked at Meng Chuan, her eyes filled with love. She said with a smile, “I wasn’t wrong about you. You figured out the Force at the age of sixteen. Even in the capital of the Great Zhou Dynasty, you will be considered a genius. As long as you don’t slack off for the next few years, you will definitely be able to enter Archean Mountain.”
“I definitely won’t slack off,” said Meng Chuan immediately.
“However, don’t be too proud. You must understand that there’s always someone better than you!” Fairy Meng said with a smile. “For example, the Fifth Young Master of King Calm Sea’s family. He is famous throughout the world. He reached the Unity realm at the age of ten. He comprehended Force at the age of thirteen and became a Godfiend when he was fifteen. Even the demons were afraid of his talent and offered a bounty for his assassination. Archean Mountain also placed great importance on him. When Fifth Young Master comprehended Force at the age of thirteen, he was immediately recruited into Archean Mountain.”
“I’ve read many Godfiend biographies.” Meng Chuan nodded. “But compared to those invincible Godfiends who left their names in history, my talent is ordinary. I won’t be proud.”
“Haha, good ambition. You actually compare yourself to those powerful Godfiends who left their names in history,” said Fairy Meng with a smile. “It’s good to have ambition, but it’s best to keep the news about you comprehending Force a secret for now. Let’s wait until next year to announce it. It will be much less shocking for a seventeen-year-old to comprehend Force.”
“Understood.” Meng Chuan nodded.
To comprehend Force at the age of sixteen made him a genius even in the capital. To comprehend Force at seventeen-years-old would make him more inferior. He could still be considered a genius in a prefecture—comparable to Patriarch Zhang.
If he only comprehended Force when he was eighteen or nineteen? It was already a question whether he could enter Archean Mountain or not. If he had comprehended Force when he was twenty years old? He would be at the level of Mei Yuanzhi—barely qualified to participate in the entrance examination—the chances of entering Archean Mountain were really slim.
“From today onwards, I will be staying here,” said Fairy Meng with a smile. “I will often come to train Chuan’er.”
“Aunt, your body…” Meng Dajiang was a little worried.
“Don’t worry. Sparring with you wouldn’t aggravate my injuries.” Fairy Meng smiled.
“Thank you, Grandaunt,” said Meng Chuan respectfully.
Fairy Meng glanced at Liu Yebai beside her and said, “Liu Yebai, you must keep Meng Chuan’s matter a secret.”
“I can vouch for Yebai with my life,” Meng Dajiang said.
“Fairy, don’t worry. I watched Chuan’er grow up. He’s like my own child. It will naturally be kept a secret,” said Liu Yebai.
Only then did Fairy Meng nod.
Meng Chuan continued to cultivate hard. True experts never stopped climbing higher. Decades were like days.
Seven days after Meng Chuan comprehended Force.
“Hmm, I sure had a good time eating.” Liu Qiyue was very pleased as she strolled around with Meng Chuan at night.
“It was my treat. How could you not be happy?” Meng Chuan pouted.
“What’s wrong with you, great Young Master Meng? Are two meals too much for you?” Liu Qiyue harrumphed.
“My family’s Cloud River Restaurant is the number one restaurant in Eastcalm Prefecture. Yet, you refused to eat there and chose other restaurants. I had to spend a lot of money at those restaurants.”
“No matter how delicious the Cloud River Restaurant is, you can’t always eat at that one restaurant, right?” Liu Qiyue said, “Alright, alright. I’ll treat you tomorrow. Will that do?”
“That’s more like it,” Meng Chuan said in satisfaction. Suddenly, his eyebrows rose, and he stared into the distance.
“What’s wrong?” Liu Qiyue was puzzled.
“Qiyue, you head back first. I saw a friend,” said Meng Chuan. “I’ll be back later.”
“Oh, sure. Don’t stay out too late.” Liu Qiyue nodded and left.
Meng Chuan looked into the distance. He could sense all life aura within half a kilometer. About a quarter kilometer away, he could sense two vicious and bloody auras. These auras were stained with many lives! Meng Chuan had once scrutinized the hands of an executioner. Even the bloody aura on those hands wasn’t as thick as these two auras.
This sort of bloody aura seemed to be filled with the screams of countless living beings. It was extremely unique in his senses, making him feel even more disgusted.
How many people have they killed to have such bloody auras? But these two auras aren’t too strong.
Meng Chuan strode forward.
He soon arrived outside a brothel.
Azure Cloud Brothel? Meng Chuan stared at the brothel in front of him. The lights inside were splendid, and there were many people inside. There was also pleasant laughter from women. Many wealthy businessmen were being led inside.
This is my first time entering a brothel. Meng Chuan walked in.
“Young Master, please,” the gigolo at the door said obsequiously.
Suddenly, the old procuress’s eyes widened. “Young Master Meng?”
“Young Master Meng?” Immediately, some of the brothel girls who were soliciting the guests turned their heads and saw Meng Chuan walking in.
“It’s Young Master Meng Chuan?” The atmosphere in the brothel instantly boiled. The women in the brothels were all infatuated with him as they passionately approached him.
