Thunder Martial Chapter 28 - Thunderbold Finger
I suddenly don't want to exchange my contribution points for a movement technique and I feel that a martial technique is more practical. After she heard Zi Chen's words, Lin Xue blinked her eyes playfully as she said
I already have a rank one martial technique, so there is no need for another. Zi Chen was deeply moved, because he naturally knew what Lin Xue was up to. He shook his head
I didn't say that it was for you. I would like to practice this technique myself. Lin Xue chuckled
Then you should exchange it for a martial techniques that is more nimble, rather than this ‘Titan Fist'. Zi Chen felt his eyes become a bit fuzzy
You have offended a lot of people that you shouldn't have, and you don't have any more contribution points, as well as any rank two martial technique. You will be at a disadvantage and suffer. Lin Xue stuck out her tongue and her mood instantly sank and she said in a low voice
Rest assured, I have a rank one martial technique. Zi Chen confidently said
But everyone knows that it is a useless martial technique, and it is impossible to master it. Lin Xue said loudly
Since it is a martial technique, then there's no way that it can't be mastered. Believe me, I will be able to master the Thunderbolt Finger. Zi Chen's eyes were brimming with confidence and determination.
Now, you should go and exchange your contribution points for a movement technique. Zi Chen nodded as he said
Un Lin Xue cutely nodded.
This time, Lin Xue viewed some of the movement techniques carefully because she wanted to find one suitable for herself. After searching for half an hour, Lin Xue finally decided to get the Moving Cloud Step. This is a movement technique that is one rank higher than the Flowing Cloud Step, and is even more profound.
Zi Chen, since we're here, we might as well go to the third floor to have a look. Could it be the place where rank one martial techniques are kept? Lin Xue looked at the third floor and her eyes shone.
Alright, let us have a look. Regarding rank one martial techniques on the third floor, Zi Chen was also very curious.
Both of them went to the third floor
The area on the third floor wasn't big, only a dozen square meters. There were only a dozen copies of martial techniques. But the first thing that caught their eyes weren't the martial techniques, but the contribution points needed.
And the highest one actually costed 200 contribution points.
The Thunderbolt Finger costed 200 contribution points.
Currently, the space which held the Thunderbolt Finger was empty, and beside it was the Misty Step, which cost 100 contribution points. In addition, the other rank one martial techniques needed at least 50 contribution points.
Those rank one martial techniques were prepared for the core disciples. They could obtain them for free, but the inner sect disciples needed to exchange them with contribution points.
We would need to at least hand in several 500 year old spirit medicines in order obtain 50 contribution points.Lin Xue's words were somewhat sour.
200 contribution points. Zi Chen was completely shocked as he looked at the eye catching amount of contribution points on the Thunderbolt Fingers tag.
He didn't expect that the Thunderbolt Finger actually cost 200 contribution points, it was equivalent to 100 True Qi Pills. Who would trade for this widely acknowledged useless martial technique. Only the core disciples would try to learn it. If Zi Chen wanted to earn that amount of contribution points, then he would need dozens of years.
This time, Zi Chen knew that he really had hit the jackpot. He gained a martial technique worth 200 contribution points for no reason.
The amount of rank one martial techniques were not many, but it still made both of them dazed. Moreover, they could only look at them. The Misty Step had attracted Zi Chen and Lin Xue. It was a pity that they didn't have enough contribution points. They could only leave in the end.
The Moving Cloud Step needed ten contribution points. After she obtained it, the old man warned her that this could only be used for one month. The martial technique must be returned after one month, and it wasn't allowed to be taken out of the Ling Wu sect.
The time limit for a rank one martial technique was three months, a rank two martial technique was one month, and a rank three martial technique was one week.
Zi Chen, if you encounter any problem, look for me. I might be able to help you Lin Xue whispered before she left
Okay. Zi Chen nodded, he actually didn't reject this time.
Zi Chen only left after he saw that Lin Xue returned to her residence. This time when he returns, he must refine the remainder of the True Qi Pills, and strive to make another breakthrough. But there were only five True Qi Pills left, and most of them would be used to refine his body. So the hope of making a breakthrough wasn't big.
On his way back, a white clothed disciple suddenly stood in front of Zi Chen.
What's the matter? Zi Chen looked at this stranger puzzledly.
I will Introduce myself, my name is Luo Mu, you can call me senior brother Luo Mu. Luo Mu smiled faintly and said.
What's the matter? Zi Chen's words were still the same.
Hehehe, no big deal. I only wanted to borrow a few True Qi Pills from junior brother, and hoped that junior brother could give me some face. Luo Mu said.
Are you retarded? Do I even know you? Zi Chen looked at Luo Mu as if he was staring at an idiot. He turned around and left.
You insulted me. I want a battle with you, otherwise you must lend me the True Qi Pills. Luo Mu said.
Idiot. Zi Chen left in big strides. The True Qi Pills were not even sufficient for himself, how could he lend them to a stranger?
He said borrow, but he might as well have said snatch.
There were idiots every day, but there were a lot today.
Zi Chen met several ‘senior brothers' on his way back, moreover all of them threatened to borrow True Qi Pills.
Now that Zi Chen had tens of True Qi Pills, there would naturally be many people who knew about this. Therefore, there would also be many people that wanted to gain some benefits from Zi Chen.
Zi Chen didn't know the amount of times he had said the word ‘idiot' before he arrived at his own place. When they left, those who wanted to gain some benefits from him looked at him with hatred.
Hmph. No wonder you can't enter the core sect, so stingy. All of the ‘senior brothers' said coldly.
This was only a small incident.
Zi Chen returned to his residence, sat cross-legged, closed his eyes and calmed his mind. After calming down, he began to swallow the True Qi Pills, and another transformation began.
As a True Qi Pill was swallowed by Zi Chen, his heart throbbed and soon sent out a silver energy throughout his body. Zi Chen's body and True Qi transformed under the nourishment of this energy
After half a day, the five True Qi Pills were refined completely. Zi Chen's cultivation reached the late stage of the sixth layer of True Qi. There was quite some distance from the seventh layer of True Qi and his formidable physique was now comparable to a rank seven fierce beast. The distance to be comparable to a rank eight fierce beast wasn't far.
In the evening, a servant came to deliver his meal. Zi Chen simply ate some of it and then closed the door, and prepared to learn the rank one martial technique.
Without any True Qi Pills, it would be impossible for Zi Chen to make anymore breakthroughs unless he spends all his time on it. The only way to improve his battle power was to learn the rank one martial technique.
The Thunderbolt Finger.
In front of Zi Chen is the Thunderbolt Finger scroll. This is not a copy of the martial technique, but the original scroll of the technique. There were three large characters on the surface of the scroll, they looked like lighting snakes.
Zi Chen opened the martial technique, and a surge of lightning power burst forth. This was just a fragment which only recorded one move.
First Finger Of The Raging Thunder.
The move, the formula, was etched into Zi Chen's mind. He repeated it in his mind many times, and the True Qi within his body soon surged unceasingly, which stimulated the formula.
The formula of the technique was revolving, and a light flashed across his eyes. Zi Chen pointed his finger forward and the speed of his finger was very fast.
One finger pointed out in the blink of an eye, it had speed, but there wasn't any trace of thunder.
The first time was a failure.
Zi Chen wasn't depressed because this was known as the most useless martial technique and no matter how much of a genius he was, Iit is impossible for him to succeed and comprehend it on the first try.
Zi Chen pointed out his finger again as he searched for the feeling of turning a finger into a thunderbolt but he failed every time.
Once, twice, ten times, twenty times, a hundred times.
As night fell, the stars shone in the sky, the experiments which spanned over several hours ended in failure.
Zi Chen sat cross-legged, took a deep breath, and got rid of the dejected feeling within his heart and made himself enter an ethereal state of mind again.
A moment later, Zi Chen's breath became steady, his mind was empty and in an ethereal state. His consciousness entered into a thunder and lightning space.
In front, a vortex that was formed from thunder and lightning surged once more. And the thunder boy appeared from it slowly. The moment he saw the opposite party, there was a hint of joy in Zi Chen's eye.
The lightning was the boy and the boy was the lightning. When Zi Chen saw him, he knew he could get to see the true essence of the Thunderbolt Finger. Later, the thunder boy indifferently pointed out one finger towards Zi Chen.
At that moment, when Zi Chen saw the thunder boy lift his hand, there was a streak of lightning between his fingertips. When the lightning flashed with a speed that was as fast as lightning, it flew towards him.
In Zi Chen's eyes, there was a streak of lightning that came his way.
The lightning exploded in front of him and Zi Chen's vision was filled with a silver light. His consciousness dissipated from the thunder and lightning space.
The rays of starlight passed through his window and fell upon Zi Chen's tranquil face, they illuminated his facial features. Zi Chen suddenly opened his eyes, and lightning flashed across his eyes.
Zi Chen's eyes shone, he seemed to have gained some comprehension towards the Thunderbolt Finger, and when his True Qi surged, a silver light appeared on his finger.
During the evening, Zi Chen didn't rest, he was practicing the Thunderbolt Finger, but the harvest wasn't big.
Early in the morning, Zi Chen finally stood up after training all night
'This Thunderbolt Finger is indeed very difficult to train, and even if I saw the true essence, I have yet to make a breakthrough.' Zi Chen sighed in his heart.
Even he faced so many difficulties, what about the others who couldn't see its true essence and the power of lightning. It must have been difficult for them, therefore it was reasonable to call the Thunderbolt Finger a useless martial technique.
After he washed up, the servant delivered his meal. Zi Chen ate a couple of mouthfuls in a hurry and knocks soon resounded from outside.
Another ‘senior brother' came again and ordered to borrow his True Qi Pills. Regarding this, Zi Chen was very helpless.
The ‘senior brothers' came and left, which made Zi Chen very frustrated. He thought that Wang Xiong and the others would come and look for trouble again today, but after half a day passed by, Wang Xiong had yet to appear. This made Zi Chen somewhat surprised, but he also felt at ease for a bit.
Compared To Wang Xiong, these ‘senior brothers' that came to borrow things were easier to settle.
Today, Wang Xiong didn't appear because he was at senior brother Luo Men's place.
They were discussing on how to deal with Zi Chen.
Just use the simplest method, send him out to complete a task and then finish him outside, once and for all. Luo Men said indifferently.
Good, let us do it according to what senior brother said. I will personally go this time. Wang Xiong said after hesitating for a moment.
In order to please Luo Men, Wang Xiong would personally make a move even though he is at the eight layer of True Qi.
It was already late when Wang Xiong returned. Wang Xiong was preparing for tomorrow morning. He asked someone to tell Zi Chen to do some task outside the sect.
There is a task assigned for you. Early in the morning, a senior brother arrived outside Zi Chen's residence shouting
But after he shouted for quite a while, there was no response from inside the residence.
Until noon, the servant that delivered the food came once more and told the senior brother that Zi Chen had not appeared in the morning.
The door was then opened forcefully, and the residence was empty.
Damn it, he actually ran away. The senior brother was furious, and he went back to report to Wang Xiong.
