Bai Feng's strength was something that a normal wooden door shouldn't be able to withstand. He had superhuman strength as a body cultivator, and he should have been able to dent in the door and rip it from its hinges easily.
However, the moment he transformed into a bodybuilder and shot a punch towards the door. He realized that something was amiss.
His fist collided with the door, and ripples started to appear in the surroundings. It was almost as if the whole shop was struck instead of the door.
The place started to shake as if an earthquake was happening, and Bai Feng's surroundings suddenly tilted to the side!
Bai Feng swore under his breath as he started falling. The whole place got tilted to the side, and this made him lose his footing. He tried to grab anything, so he wouldn't fall towards the darkening side of the shop, but the moment he tried to grab one of the pieces of furniture, he realized that they became extremely slippery.
Bai Feng was running rather quickly as he made his way to the restaurant with Mo Pian on his heels by a few tens of meters.At first, Mo Pian didn't really care about the race, but Bai Feng glanced back at him and stuck his tongue out at him before laughing and making his way even quicker to the restaurant, basically mocking Mo Pian.Mo Pian was rather amused by Bai Feng's attempt at inciting him to run quicker over this race, so he decided to play along.He increased his speed using the Qi in his body, but he didn't give it his all as he knew that he couldn't beat Bai Feng in a race from the characteristics of a body cultivator. But he did so anyway, so he could make Bai Feng happier.Bai Feng looked back at Mo Pian, who was slowly getting closer to him, but the muscles around his legs started to buff up as he increased his speed in an instant. He was still experimenting with his newly refined body, and he felt like this type of playing would help him le
Bai Feng felt his blood flow quicken under the water spirit's gaze. Was he thinking gibberish? There was no way she was talking about that type of playing. They just met! And his sister told him only married couples got to do that thing. He opened his mouth and asked: "What type of playing are you talking about? What games?" She smiled as she grabbed Bai Feng's hand and said: "Come with me. I want to show you something." Bai Feng didn't know what to make of this response. But he let himself be guided as she dragged him through the water even further down until they reached an underwater cave. There the water spirit helped him inside, and surprisingly there was oxygen in the cave so Bai Feng could stop keeping his breath. He started breathing normally, and as he glanced around, he saw that the cave was decorated with rather expensive pearls and pink-blue furniture. A king-sized bed stood in the middle of the cave. <
Mo Pian looked at the jewel that was hanging from the necklace at Bai Feng's neck. He knew that most likely, the water spirit dwelled in there now. The contract between him and her felt quite a mistake to him, so he voiced his opinion."Bai Feng, I did say this before, but with your luck, you would have been able to make a contract with a way better spirit compared to the water one. She is quite useless, and you should know that."Bai Feng didn't know what to say as he glanced down at the necklace. The jewel started to glow as Aura materialized from the jewel and glared at Mo Pian:"How do you know what I can do? And what I can't? You goddamn sickly bamboo pole?"She pointed at Mo Pian's nose as she said:"You would be smart to retract those words. Whatever gossips you heard around this sect doesn't show the true extent of my power!"Mo Pian snorted as he appeared in front of her and conjured a ki binding, making her unable to move."
The duo awaited the return of the peculiar elder while they chatted:"Pian, did you know anything about these badges, or is this news to you too?"Mo Pian shook his head as he looked at the door. Which leads to the stairs, and said:"I haven't been to this place before, even though I used to walk from casino to casino before. I have never gone to this place due to my lack of power, I broke through to the 5th level of the Qi apprentice realm a few weeks before you arrived at the restaurant, but I still didn't think about taking missions. They are too hard, and it's easier to make enough money to live with my job.""You never considered taking even the lowliest missions for those mission points you talked about?"Bai Feng's question struck at Mo Pian's sore spot as he said:"I did... but I was never able to. Let's leave it at that."Since Mo Pian didn't want to talk about it anymore, Bai Feng decided to stop the conversation.How
Bai Feng started to make his way towards the inner parts of the market towards a peculiar building that stood out. It had the mascot of a wooden fish, which had the words "fresh food ingredients" inscribed in it. That's where the middle-aged man's friends and business partners sold the things that Bai Feng needed. Atleast that's what the man told him. He had no other better leads. Chitong only told him about the ingredients, not where he could find them. The list of ingredients was rather peculiar, to the point that he knew that even Mo Pian would be stumped on where to get them. He had some knowledge of the ingredients from Chitong's jade slip, and the connection with Aura helped him, so he wasn't in the dark, and he knew that Chitong was trying to help him. Bai Feng entered the building and looked around. He saw meats stacked together on stalls that had little plaques with their origins and prices. The smell of so many meats together was quite nause
Bai Feng felt conflicted, he wanted to break through further so he wouldn't be left in the dust by his sister's progress, but he knew that if he rushed things along. He wouldn't end well.It was quite annoying. His progress wasn't delayed by the lack of ingredients nor wealth but by his own ability.If he wanted to, he could eat the food he made with the ingredients he got even now as he only needed a little bit of work with it. But could he withstand the Qi which would rush through his body?He almost couldn't withstand the breakthrough last time, and according to the jade slip and his guessing, the concoction he would make was way superior to the crocodile elf rib-eye steak that Mo Pian made.But Bai Feng shook his head. It wasn't the right thing to rush things even though he had a good reason to.He still didn't know much about his own cultivation path, and everyone around him didn't know either. It seemed that the body cultivation branch was ra
Bai Feng wasn't perturbed by the fact that he had to fight Mo Pian's visage. He was more annoyed than anything. Couldn't the fire tribulation just take the form of Chen Lingxi again?He launched himself directly at the fire person without any plan. His attacks were quick and precise, as he slowly learned how to fight over time.There wasn't anything that the fire Mo Pian could do to him. At first, his head disappeared, then one of his arms was blown away, while it continued to say the same words as before.Bai Feng thought that every tribulation should have been harder than the previous one, but it seemed he was wrong.This wasn't really a challenge at all.But the moment he finished his thoughts, he saw how another head popped out of the fire body, it was his sister, Mu An!Bai Feng frowned as he glanced at the fire body and said:"Hey... you can do a lot of things, try to imitate my friend, become one of the people that I have probl
Bai Feng's melancholic mood infected Mo Pian as well for some reason, as he felt just a little bit exhausted with a tinge of wanting to do nothing for a while, seemingly as if he didn't have any goal.Bai Feng sighed as he looked at the drifting clouds through the moving leaves at the top of the tree. A small ray of light went through the gap of the leaves, only for the leaves to move and cover it a split second later.Mo Pian didn't lean on the tree and sit down like Bai Feng was doing as he was keeping a hand on the tree while he looked at the day sky, which was filled with fluffy clouds- did Bai Feng really didn't have any goal that he could call his own?He could understand what Bai Feng was going through, somewhat. As he didn't use to have a goal for quite a long time, but it didn't affect him that much. Back then, he was still drifting through life, and he didn't care much about that aspect of it. Especially because he wasn't a cultivator back then.<
