Chapter 13 – Xu Zong’s aspiration

Xu Zong in his previous life was a rather selfish person, not the kind who would do anything to achieve his goals, but he did have the common selfishness of wanting to strive for himself in society.

His family conditions were not very good in his previous life. His father was idle and his mother had a strong personality. After three small quarrels and five big quarrels, they finally divorced when Xu Zong was five years old, and he was given to his mother.

At the age of five, he had just started to understand things. The divorce of his parents had a huge impact on his values, causing him to have a different personality from ordinary people since childhood. He was introverted and isolated. It wasn’t until he grew up and entered society, after being beaten by society, that he gradually learned to be slick.

He smiled at people not because he liked it, but because he had no choice. He had long realized that in life, eight or nine out of ten things would not go as planned. It was better to live for oneself, to hell with houses, cars, getting married, having children. He wanted to be single and carefree for his whole life!

Even if he died and donated his property to children in mountainous areas, wouldn’t it be much better than working hard and living aimlessly for a lifetime?

At least someone would remember me after I died!

After being reincarnated, Xu Zong had considered it when he was very young. He knew that someone like him was not suitable to be a soldier, and he was destined not to follow in his parents’ footsteps. But unconsciously, his behavior and actions were somewhat influenced by his family background, and he became more restrained. He consciously adjusted his behavior to avoid disgracing his family. Otherwise, he would be much more reckless.

“I choose to join the martial arts school.”

Xu Zong almost didn’t hesitate and gave his answer.

“Are you sure?”

The president asked.

“Very sure.”

Xu Zong replied.

“Haha, good! If you choose to join the military, I would feel a bit regretful!”

The president’s voice finally relaxed and carried a hint of laughter.

“The military values collective combat and will put a lot of effort into training your collective combat ability, which will greatly limit your personal growth. But you don’t have to feel like you’re betraying your family background. Whether you become a warrior or a soldier, in the end, you can still contribute to the country and the people. When you become stronger in the future, become a war god or even a senator, helping the country with a word will be more useful than joining the military now.”

“In fact, many of our war gods and senators, although they haven’t joined the military, will still come back to help without hesitation when the country gives the order!”

That’s true.

Xu Zong showed a knowing smile. When I become a senator in the future, or even a powerful being in the universe, just a word from me will be much more effective than joining the military now!

Before that, his warrior career was like “sharpening a knife”!

“Thank you for your guidance, President.”

“I haven’t really guided you, it’s best if you can figure it out yourself.”

The president nodded slightly, apparently seeing that he was not caught up in self-doubt. It was necessary to keep a clear mind at all times.

“Wu Tong, you can teach him the Primal Energy cultivation method later. Within five days, it should further enhance Xu’s strength.”

“Don’t worry, President, I understand.”

The chief instructor, Wu Tong, nodded seriously.

“President, do I need to prepare anything?”

Xu Zong asked the screen.

“Just adjust yourself to the best state, I will handle everything else.”

After the president finished speaking, he was about to hang up the call.

“By the way, Xu, during the last two seconds of your previous test, your chest suddenly sank… Have you practiced Internal Martial Arts?”

The president noticed?

Xu Zong’s heart tightened, but after reacting, he felt that there was nothing he couldn’t say, so he honestly replied, “Yes, I have practiced a bit of Xingyi Quan.”

“Exactly! I read a novel before the Great Nirvana, and I have long admired our national martial arts. It’s a pity that I gave up because I was too old to achieve anything even if I continued practicing.”

The president’s interest was immediately aroused, and he asked enthusiastically, “What realm are you in now? Ming Jin, An Jin?”

“Ming Jin, An Jin?”

Xu Zong suddenly felt confused.

“Oh, no, if you can sink your chest by one centimeter, it’s not something that An Jin can achieve. Could it be that you have already stepped into Hua Jin?”

After the president asked, he vetoed his own speculation.

“Well, it’s not appropriate to say that. How about this, when you come to me in five days, we’ll discuss it in detail!”


Around noon, Xu Zong walked out of the gate of the Extreme Martial Arts School.

He had already received the Primal Energy cultivation method and passed the physical assessment. He only needed to participate in the special practical assessment after five days to obtain the identity of a warrior.

But his thoughts were immersed in the realm of Internal Martial Arts that the president mentioned just now.

Swallowed Star Xu Zong: “I seem to have discovered the truth @The Nine Cauldrons Xu Zong.”

The Nine Cauldrons Xu Zong: “?”

The Nine Cauldrons Xu Zong: “Why are you suddenly asking this?”

Swallowed Star Xu Zong: “In the Swallowed Star world, Internal Martial Arts does not distinguish between External Power, Internal Power, and Grandmaster. It is divided into Bright Power, Dark Power, and Transformation Power. In other words, the Internal Martial Arts in this world does not cultivate Internal Power!”

The Nine Cauldrons Xu Zong: “I see! So, the reason why the Internal Martial Arts in the Swallowed Star version cannot be used as a guiding technique is because it does not cultivate Internal Power and cannot absorb Primal Energy?”

Swallowed Star Xu Zong: “That’s right, but The Nine Cauldrons version of Internal Martial Arts does cultivate Internal Power, so the Internal Martial Arts in The Nine Cauldrons world can be used as a guiding technique, and it is a guiding technique that anyone can use without any threshold!”

Swallowed Star Xu Zong: “I think if I sell my version of Internal Martial Arts, I can make a fortune!”

The Nine Cauldrons Xu Zong: “9!”

After this incident, the two of them understood one thing very clearly.

Even if it was the same Internal Martial Arts, it could be divided into different versions based on the world, with different effects!

And depending on the world, even the same thing brought into the Swallowed Star world could have significantly different effects. For example, the Swallowed Star world does not cultivate meridians, and all the absorbed energy is used to strengthen the body and genes.

From this, it can be inferred.

Swallowed Star Xu Zong: “Different worlds may have different laws, there may be areas of convergence and areas that are completely incompatible, it depends on the similarity between the worlds!”

For example, both The Nine Cauldrons world and the Swallowed Star world are Tomato Flow worlds, so there must be many areas of compatibility between them. Many things and concepts can be used interchangeably. The Internal Martial Arts cultivated in The Nine Cauldrons world can be used as a guiding technique for cultivating Primal Energy in the Swallowed Star world.

But if it were a Potato Flow or Chen Dong Flow world, it might have a very low similarity, and a secret technique that works in one world might be very weak in another world, or it might not work at all!

Of course, the specific effects would depend on the specific world.

In the afternoon, Xu Zong, who returned home, immediately started trying the Primal Energy cultivation method given by the martial arts school.

In the Swallowed Star world, there was only one Primal Energy cultivation method, which was “Five Hearts Towards the Sky,” which was the one he had just received.

But there were countless guiding techniques, which were invented by numerous powerful beings such as war gods and senators.

Essentially, the Primal Energy cultivation method was equivalent to refining essence and transforming qi, while the guiding techniques were various methods. The more advanced the guiding technique, the better the effect of cultivating Primal Energy.

The “Five Hearts Towards the Sky” that Xu Zong had just received was the most basic and fundamental cultivation method, also known as the basic internal skill.

However, even for a warrior who was cultivating Primal Energy for the first time, the basic internal skill was completely sufficient because the first cultivation mainly depended on the hunger of the cells.

“No, I can’t cultivate this!”

After trying the Five Hearts Towards the Sky, Xu Zong reluctantly gave up. He had already used up the buff from the first cultivation half a month ago when he just learned the Twelve Forms. Now, cultivating the Five Hearts Towards the Sky, he couldn’t even taste a bit of buff!

And in terms of absorbing cosmic energy, the Five Hearts Towards the Sky was far inferior to the Twelve Forms, let alone comparing it with the Tiger Form Divine Art!

Swallowed Star Xu Zong: “By the way, how fast is the cultivation speed of the Tiger Form Divine Art? I have been busy cultivating the Five Elements Spear these past few days and haven’t had much time to cultivate the Tiger Form Divine Art.”

Swallowed Star Xu Zong: “@The Nine Cauldrons Xu Zong.”

The Nine Cauldrons Xu Zong: “Hmm? Oh, you’re asking about this. Well, you’ve asked the right person. I just cultivated it for ten days, and I estimate that my physical strength has increased by at least 10,000 jin!”

Swallowed Star Xu Zong: “Wow! That’s amazing!”

The Nine Cauldrons Xu Zong: “According to my cousin’s estimation, if I continue to cultivate the Tiger Form Divine Art for another twenty days, I will reach the limit of my physical strength… In total, I can enhance myself by 40,000 jin within a month, which is about 20 tons of strength!”

The Nine Cauldrons Xu Zong: “But my cousin doesn’t know that I have the talent of ‘no bottleneck in cultivation.’ When the time comes, it will shock him! Hehe!”

Swallowed Star Xu Zong: “I understand! I will temporarily put aside the Five Elements Spear and focus on cultivating the Tiger Form Divine Art these days!”

The Nine Cauldrons Xu Zong: “Why the rush? What are you going to do?”

Swallowed Star Xu Zong: “I’m going to participate in the practical assessment for warriors, and it’s a special channel. The death rate is said to be quite high.”

The Nine Cauldrons Xu Zong: “Goodness gracious, make sure to record a video then, so I can enjoy the scenery of the Swallowed Star world! By the way, the chat group has a video recording function. Just think it, and it will work. This small function doesn’t count towards the total functions. If I hadn’t studied it often, it would have been disabled.”

Swallowed Star Xu Zong: “OK!”

In the following days.

The Nine Cauldrons Xu Zong continued to practice the Tiger Form Divine Art and the Xingyi Five Elements Spear with Teng Qingshan in the Teng Family Village. He took over the task of transforming the Splitting Fist into the Splitting Spear. Every day, he shared Xu Zong’s talent and made progress that amazed Teng Qingshan.

By the way, the shared talent could only be maintained for a day at most, so The Nine Cauldrons Xu Zong had to log into the chat group every day to share Xu Zong’s talent.

Meanwhile, Xu Zong was completely immersed in the cultivation of the Tiger Form Divine Art, trying to achieve the greatest evolution before the practical assessment arrived.

In the blink of an eye, five days had passed.
