Vol.1 – Chapter 69 – Remembering the secluded clouds, the martial artist is not weaker than the cultivator

“The Youyun Continent, I once went there to train when I was young.”

“There is no longer a distinction between the cultivation world and the secular world. The people there are fierce. Even those who cannot cultivate will practice martial arts. The mountains are full of evil spirits, and there are often inexplicable ghosts and monsters.”

“The spiritual energy between heaven and earth there is much more abundant than in your continent. The cultivation world there is also much stronger than yours. Sects like the Qingxuan Sect are considered insignificant over there.”

“Although the Youyun Continent is extremely dangerous, it is also rich in natural treasures. There are even many ancient immortal family’s relics hidden in the mountains and wilds, encountering them would be a great fortuity.”

“For cultivators seeking the path to immortality, this is indeed a good place for cultivation and training. Just like my training back then, it greatly improved my cultivation by a large realm.”

The Fairy Lingyue recalled with some emotion.

“In this world, there is actually such a place.”

Hearing this, Xu Taiping couldn’t help but feel a sense of longing.

But soon, after carefully examining the teleportation token in his hand, he said somewhat regretfully, “But this token is only half. It might be difficult to find the other half.”

“You don’t need to worry about this. The teleportation token itself is also a magical treasure. Even if it is divided into dozens of pieces, they can still resonate with each other. I can teach you how to find it when the time comes.”

The Fairy Lingyue said confidently.

Upon hearing this, Xu Taiping was overjoyed, then he thanked the Fairy Lingyue and said to Baiyu, “Baiyu, I will take this thing. It is useful to me.”


Baiyu nodded with a dim look in his eyes.

At this moment, he was still immersed in the grief of losing his mother, and he had no mood to think about anything else, not even why Xu Taiping had the ability to fight the Peacock King.

Seeing this scene, Xu Taiping couldn’t help but feel a pang in his heart.

Having also lost his loved ones early on, he empathized with Baiyu’s current feelings.

“I’m sorry I couldn’t kill the Peacock King today.”

Xu Taiping said apologetically.

At the mention of the “Peacock King,” Baiyu’s eyes, which were originally dull, suddenly lit up again.

“No, fortunately, you didn’t kill it.”

Baiyu shook his head, then his eyes filled with anger as he said, “This way, I have the chance to avenge my mother and my clan myself!”

After saying this, his expression softened a bit, and then he raised his wings, lifted a drop of source demon blood containing profound spiritual power, and placed it in front of Xu Taiping, saying, “Taiping, thanks to you this time, not only did I see my mother, but I also inherited her source demon blood and demon pill. You must take this drop of source demon blood.”

After thinking for a moment, Xu Taiping did not accept the drop of source demon blood used to form a soul contract. Instead, he asked Baiyu very seriously, “Have you thought it through? I won’t force you to form a soul contract with me.”

“I have thought it through. If I can’t even keep this promise, I would be ashamed in front of my mother’s spirit in heaven.”

Baiyu’s tone was very firm.

Upon hearing this, Xu Taiping no longer hesitated, nodded, and reached out to catch the drop of source demon blood.

“From today, I, Baiyu, voluntarily serve as Xu Taiping’s spiritual pet for a century. From this day on, Xu Taiping is my master.”

Baiyu pledged.

“Baiyu, you and I are not master and servant. There is no need to address each other as such. This soul contract is just a promise.”

Xu Taiping shook his head.

Baiyu looked deeply at Xu Taiping, then nodded heavily and said, “From today, you, Xu Taiping, are my brother, sharing life and death together.”


Xu Taiping remembered when he was a child, he was quite envious of the children in the village who had siblings. He immediately smiled and nodded, “Okay.”

After settling Baiyu in the gourd for rest, Xu Taiping went to the backyard to practice boxing for a while, and then tried the Thousandfold Force that Fairy Lingyue had taught him today.

“The Thousandfold Force is a martial arts technique for exerting force. You can use it in conjunction with the Green Bull Fist. Don’t worry about it being exposed as an outer disciple’s technique.”

Seeing Xu Taiping’s Thousandfold Force becoming more and more proficient, Fairy Lingyue was also very happy and reminded him.

Xu Taiping nodded, then asked with some curiosity, “Sister Lingyue, I remember when Master Ziyang preached last time, he said that warriors are powerless in front of cultivators, but today I saw that your Thousandfold Force can actually suppress the Peacock King. It seems that martial cultivation is not as weak as he said.”

“It’s good that you noticed this.”

Fairy Lingyue smiled with satisfaction.”In the realm of true cultivation and physical refinement, once a certain level is reached, there is actually no distinction of superiority. It’s just that the spiritual energy in your world is too sparse, and there are too few heavenly materials and earthly treasures to nurture a respectable martial body.”

“In our world, the indestructible body of the demon race’s Great Sage and the diamond body of the human race are both top-tier formidable existences. There was once a martial fanatic from the demon race who, with just the body of a Great Sage, rampaged through most of the cultivation world, and even high-level cultivators couldn’t withstand a single punch from him.”

She casually began to introduce this to Xu Taiping as if they were chatting.

“Martial practitioners can actually rampage through most of the cultivation world?”

Xu Taiping found this somewhat inconceivable.

“It’s not that surprising.”

Fairy Lingyue nodded.

“Do you still remember the body forging technique I taught you two years ago, and the set of items I had you wear?”

She suddenly looked at Xu Taiping with a smile.

“Of course, I remember.”

Xu Taiping nodded.

He patted his abdomen and then his thigh, hearing a clear metallic sound, before continuing:

“I haven’t taken those items off in the past two years, except when bathing, and I’ve also been practicing that body forging technique every day without fail.”

“Although it was very painful to practice at the beginning, especially after putting on those items, even ordinary walking became extremely inconvenient. However, after adapting for two years, it has gotten much better.”

Two years ago, after Xu Taiping began taking Dragon Gall Bladder Wine and his physique was further strengthened, Fairy Lingyue taught him a body forging technique.

According to Fairy Lingyue, this body forging technique was quite rudimentary but very suitable for beginners to temper their muscles and bones.

So he persisted in practicing it for a full two years.

“Actually, I didn’t expect you to be able to persist, but after these two years, your muscles and bones have been tempered quite well. Once we go up the mountain, I will teach you another body forging technique that has been passed down from the ancient Human Emperor.”

Fairy Lingyue said with a sense of gratification.
