Chapter 216: Lack of Pure Qi

Here is Tuesday’s release. I have caught up on my sleep so I missed yesterday and overslept today 🙂 sorry xoxo

Editor: Hakubruh

Note: Pure Qi in the following chapters refers the the Pure Qi of heaven and earth that cultivators absorb during cultivation to strengthen themselves. Xuan Qi layer and above is where cultivators can control Pure Qi as energy to form attacks.




 

A horse-driven carriage was moving down an ancient road.

 

Three horses were pulling the carriage. Behind that carriage, there were many people riding horses and acting as guards.

 

“Neeeiiighh…”

 

The person driving the carriage pulled back on the reins and came to a stop.

 

Then, guards on the right and left of the carriage continued moving forwards. A person was lying on the ground. That person was wearing the armor of a soldier.

 

“Fu Bo, his heartbeat is normal, there is no irregularity at all. He’s alive but unconscious.” said one man to the driver of the carriage while checking the person’s body.

 

“Move him to the side of the road. We have to hurry.” said the driver of the carriage indifferently. The man was about to execute the order, but at that moment, a pair of lily-white hands opened the curtains of the carriage. A delicate face appeared from behind the curtains. It was a beautiful young girl, she was very young. Lights were flashing in her eyes.

 

“Fu Bo, how could a soldier end up here lying on the road?” asked the young woman whose voice was clear and limpid. Fu Bo shook his head and said: “I’m not sure, but in our country, Mo Yue, ordinary soldiers are not that strong. Except for soldiers whose rank is lieutenant or above, the others are not considered strong on the battlefield. That person must be extremely weak which would explain why he was abandoned on the road.”

 

“Oh.” said the young girl while slightly nodding. A light flashed in her eyes and she said: “Take him with us in the carriage.”

 

“Miss, this is not appropriate.” said Fu Bo who was surprised.

 

“It doesn’t matter, Fu Bo.” said the young girl while ignoring him and smiling. She then talked to the man who was standing at the soldiers side and said: “Carry him over here and put him inside the carriage.”

 

That guards glanced at Fu Bo. However, Fu Bo had no choice but to nod. The guards had no other choice but to carry the unconscious soldier into the carriage.

 

The carriage then slowly continued moving forwards. In the carriage, there was delicate young woman and young girl who was about ten years old. She was also very pretty.

 

“Zi Ling, why did you bring a stranger into the carriage?” asked the young woman. She was curiously looking at the young soldier lying down in the carriage. She could help but frown.

 

“Zi Yi, big sister, look, he looks so young, can you guess his age?” said the young beautiful little girl as if she hadn’t heard the original question. She looked very curious as well.

 

Zi Ling glanced at Zi Yi and slightly shook her head. She then looked at the lying young man and frowned. Suddenly, she looked perplexed.

 

“What a delicate and handsome young man.” thought Zi Yi while sighing. Even though that young man was unconscious, his face was delicate, he had dashing eyebrows and his cheeks looked extremely delicate. His entire body was covered with dust from the road.

 

That young man didn’t look like a soldier, why was he wearing armor?

 

“Zi Yi, sister, that young man and you seem to be the same age. He’s very handsome. You would be a perfect couple.” said Zi Ling.

 

“Don’t talk nonsense.” said Zi Yi.

 

“Zi Yi, sister, I’m just joking, I know that your husband would have to be stronger than you. You have already broken through to the third Ling Qi layer, you’re a genius. He’s very young and he’s a soldier, how could he be stronger than you?” said Zi Ling while smiling. Zi Yi was just shaking her head.

 

“Zi Ling, instead of talking about me, you should be talking about your cultivation, especially your sword skills.”

 

“Hee hee.” laughed Zi Ling.

 

Zi Ling then said: “Zi Yi, sister, why does Zi Qiong suddenly want to get married? I didn’t think that he had a girl he liked.”

 

When Zi Yi heard Zi Ling, she frowned and immediately said: “The day of the offerings for the gods and ancestors is approaching. Zi Qiong needs to be married to gain access to the forbidden area. Therefore, his wedding is a very normal thing. Concerning the girl, I heard that they’ve only known each other for a few days. Otherwise, I don’t much more than you.”

 

A light flashed in Zi Ling’s eyes and then she shook her head as a sign that she didn’t understand such complicated things.

 

But at that moment, the young man lying in the carriage moved his finger. Zi Ling was surprised and said: “He’s awake.”

 

Then, the young man’s hand started to move. Immediately after, he opened his eyes.

 

The young man’s eyes were big and beautiful but at that moment, his eyes revealed uncertainty.

 

That young man was Lin Feng.

 

On that day, after the conversation with Duan Xin Ye, he left her and walked for a great distance. He didn’t get the impression that something was wrong with his body but suddenly, he fainted and did not know what happened after that.

 

He had no idea what happened. He didn’t even know how many days had passed since that moment.

 

Zi Ling and Zi Yi were surprised when they saw Lin Feng. What a handsome young man! At that moment, his eyes were open as he laid on the floor of the carriage.

 

“Where am I?” asked Lin Feng while looking at the two girls. He looked perplexed.

 

“You’re awake. My name is Zi Ling. You were lying on the road and we accidentally came across you so we took you into our carriage.” said Zi Ling while blinking unceasingly. She then said: “Oh by the way, how did you faint on that road? And are you a soldier? What is your military ranking? How strong are you?” Zi Ling was unceasingly asking questions which cause Lin Feng’s mind to spin. He said in a weak voice: “Is it ok if I get up first?”

 

“Oh, ok.” said Zi Ling a bit embarrassed. Immediately after, Lin Feng, who was lying on the floor, stood up and sat down opposite the girl.

 

“My name is Lin Feng. I fainted because I was injured. I am just an ordinary soldier. My strength is…….”

 

While talking, Lin Feng tried to gather some of his pure Qi but then, he suddenly looked astonished. He just had the feeling that he was empty inside and there wasn’t even a trace of pure Qi.

 

“What’s wrong?”

 

Lin Feng’s heart was pounding. His eyes were turbulent. He remembered that he had become stronger. He should have become much stronger but at that moment, he surprisingly couldn’t manage to condense any pure Qi. There wasn’t any pure Qi inside of his body any longer.

 

“What’s wrong” asked Zi Ling when she saw that Lin Feng’s facial expression change so drastically. She then asked: “You were just about to tell us how strong you were?”

 

Lin Feng glanced at Zi Ling and immediately after, he closed his eyes. He could still clearly perceive everything around him.

 

Even without releasing the first layer of his Celestial Spirit, he was still able to perceive every part of his body, the muscles, the flesh and the blood vessels. He could perfectly sense everything that was happening within his body.

 

If Lin Feng wanted, he could perceive everything that was happening around him to a circumference of a thousand kilometres, the whole world would become an image within his mind.

 

“Indeed, I have become stronger and it even seems that my bones, flesh and muscles are much stronger than before.”

 

Lin Feng opened his eyes and used one hand to violently punch the palm of his other hand. He had gained impressive strength. Even though there was no pure Qi, while considering his body’s strength, he was much stronger than he was before. That meant that he now had a stronger constitution.

 

However, Lin Feng persistently tried to control pure Qi, but something was wrong, it seemed like there was absolutely no pure Qi within his body.

 

“What the hell has happened to me?” thought Lin Feng while frowning. He had become stronger but did not have any pure Qi, what was that supposed to mean?

 

Could it be that, after he became stronger and mastered his sword fusion, something strange happened to his body? Why would his pure Qi have run dry?

 

Lin Feng tried to absorb pure Qi into his body again but it would only circulate within his body, it wouldn’t penetrate inside or be absorbed. It seemed like the external world and the inside of his body were completely separated. Whatever he tried, it seemed like the universe did not agree.

 

Lin Feng had never heard of such a condition, let alone seen it. He didn’t understand what was happening to him.

 

Lin Feng was firmly frowning for a long time and then tried to relax. His cultivation was unlikely to have been crippled.

 

Maybe it was something good, maybe he had entered an unknown path on the road to cultivation.

 

While thinking that, Lin Feng felt a bit relieved. At that moment, there was no amazing energy inside of him but it wasn’t a bad thing. He still had the Qi that an ordinary person who did not practice cultivation would have. He even looked even more handsome.

 

“Why are you not talking?” asked Zi Ling while looking at Lin Feng after seeing that his facial expression didn’t stop changing while he remained silent.

 

Lin Feng raised his head and looked at Zi Ling, he then said: “It seems like I have no strength at all.”

 

“No strength?” sighed Zi Ling surprised. She had a strange expression on her face.

 

“A piece of trash then?” said Zi Yi straightforwardly. She frowned. A person who had no strength was obviously a piece of trash. In the continent, nobody could gain a high place within society if they weren’t strong. They would systematically thrown aside even if they were handsome.

 

At that moment, she looked at Lin Feng with disdain.

    thanks for the chapter

  2. Rai S Loki   •  

    Thank you for the chapter!!! 😀

  3. SVPP KILLER v2   •  

    This chapter went into a different direction all of a sudden. Thx btw 🙂

  4. Demize   •  

    So thats it? So much about the war and the plot behind curtains to just end fainting in the road….thats so friggin anti-climatic….and on top of that he just blamed the princess without hearing reasons or not even bothering to listen to her side of the story…

    This Mc is turning out to be a scumbag in the end…hopefully is just for a short time but what about the “clear mind” from listening to the music with his master….sigh so many questions

    • notsaneinthebrain   •     Author

      Her side of the story did not matter to him. She was either naive and endangered hundred of thousands for her own selfish reasons.

      Or she knew about the plot and was part of it.

      Either way, Lin Feng does not have to sit there and listen. He just risked his life fighting to the death with broken bones, only to find out it was all a set up from the beginning.

      I don’t think at that point, anything he could do would be rational, so it is better to do nothing.

      • Demize   •  

        Yeah it is justifiable that he was enraged by the new truth but how would the princess know that she was going to become a bloody sacrifice and on top of that being betrayed (cuz thats what happened or at least if she did really not know) by her own people?

        Taking all that aside such anti-climatic ending for this war arc was kinda…sad? Killjoy? Meh dont mind me q.q

      • nobody   •  

        This chapter feels like such an abrupt tangent from the preceding story line… Reminds me of the time when Lin Feng broke through the Ling Qi layer then died followed by a 20 year time skip and a new MC… You aren’t trolling us again, are you?

      • Seink   •  

        I think the princes was just a piece in the chess board.
        The second prince made her interested in Lin Feng,
        then he made Lin Feng her personal body guard,
        then gave the army control to the Duan Xian Ye,

        I think this could be the plan:
        Lin Feng would be near the princess, inside Duan Xian Ye’s camp,
        There the princess would be kidnapped by Duan Xian Ye’s men,
        Duan Xian Ye would blame Lin Feng and using this as an excuse create confusion inside the army,
        The enemy army would attack and deal great damage to Liu Can Lan’s army
        After Liu Can Lan’s defeat, if he was not dead, he would at least lose his position and Duan Xian Ye would take control of the whole army, then heroically save the princess from the enemy and make the enemy retreat, but thats only after Mo Jie go back to his capital and receive his reward for defeating Liu Can Lan.

        So my guess is that Liu Can Lan, Duan Xian Ye and the second prince are all working together ;p
        The princess is innocent and also has no power so she couldnt resist in any way.
        And Lin Feng is not so smart as he went to have tea in the middle of his personal enemy’s army’s camp. XD

        • Seink   •  

          So my guess is that Liu Can Lan, Duan Xian Ye and the second prince are all working together ;p

          made a mistake XD it should be:

          So my guess is that Mo Jie, Duan Xian Ye and the second prince are all working together ;p

  5. zack   •

  6. Maou   •

  7. Reright   •

  9. ekekee   •  

    Get enough sleeps to avoid pimples Bunny ;p

  10. eLeMeF   •  

    wtf????!

    Author makes Zi Yi seem like a nice person, who seemed to already recognise that the man who fainted on the road as a weak person, then she just suddenly has a complete transformation of her personality.

    • Takatathien   •  

      Read again, Zi Ling is the nice older girl who rescued him. Zi Yi is the 10 years old brat.

  11. AkuyaKibito   •  

    Maybe this was caused by the snake spirit and instead he now need to eat someone elses Pure Qi using the spirit?

  12. xfreakshow   •  

    its must be the imperial blood spirit the closed door

    • Somax   •  

      i was thinking the same and am actually surprised that you are the first one thinking about this in the comment

  13. Mossadegh   •  

    I’m gonna die laughing if he ends up fighting a Chu Feng over some arbitrary reason in the coming chapters.

    • TatsR   •  

      Took me a long time to understand xD

      • Pyro   •  

        took me half a second because I love both series

  14. TatsR   •  

    Thanks for the chapters, but this was anti-climatic as hell… Lin Feng is f*cked in so many ways and know this… let me guess he will spend a few chapters being called piece of trash like if those 200 chapters wasn`t enough -_- and then suddenly regain is strength…

    • ravelord   •  

      He didn’t really lost his strength, he still got alot stronger physic compared to before

      • TatsR   •  

        You know what i was trying to say -_- even in this way he will still get his ass handed lol since he lost his qi temporary, but what piss me off is the whole piece of trash thing, i once saw a review about the novel and the guy said the novel revolve around Lin Feng and his battle against the never ending bullying, i`m starting to think he was right…

    • kad   •  

      yep i was thinking the same .lol

  15. ravelord   •  

    Well, new plot is incoming, let’s see what he will do when they get to know his original country ^_^

  16. kenken   •  

    Thnx for the chapter

  17. Whale   •  

    It could be the same as Meng Hao from ISSTH, that he did something forbidden which caused the heaven and earth not to give their qi to him anymore.
    Or by fusing with a sword, he can no longer fuse with pure qi from heaven and earth, but rather from his sword or from the enemies he kills with his sword or smth similar

    • Seink   •  

      I think its just an after effect from his reckless usage of internal qi in the last battle.
      Take some pills, rest, flirt with some women and after a few days everything will go back to normal ;p

  18. Seink   •  

    Thanks for the translation!
    Plot armor ON.
    Def + 9999999999999

  20. Gkubro   •  

    the guy that’s getting married probably took the princess to marry her and did something to lin feng or he was already like that and just left his ass maybe princess begged to spare his life if she went willingly

      I hate it but i agree with you… i love the novel and some of his characters and i won`t drop it but seriously F*CK the author!

  26. ZaX   •  

    just think of all the people -> girls that will miss him. Thanks for the chapter

  27. Shinra   •  

    Feels like all Lin Feng do is always getting new enemy without even manage to finish even one. Even his cousin is still alive until now. All the people Lin Feng manage to kill is just some side villain that only appear for a few chapter. I wonder when Lin Feng gonna kill major villain and not some side villain.

    And its kinda good that the story finally enter new arc, coz its become kind of repetitive. Offend someone, fight. offend someone, fight. Without manage to completely take care of the problem of course.

  28. Mr. White   •  

    thanks! geez talk about rude, meeting someone and calling them trash

  29. niax   •  

    Ehh, after all the bs with the princess, he just leaves her?

    Should be no repercussions from that.
