I Have Countless Legendary Swords!
Chapter 191 - Astral Projection Stage, Frost King Sword
Chapter 191 - Astral Projection Stage, Frost King Sword
Facing Lin Guanyu’s rude words, Emperor Yan of Zhou was expressionless.
He had not been able to deal with this brother-in-law of his this whole time.
It was because of Lin Guanyu and Merciful Melody Cliff that the Great Zhou’s Empress was able to act so arrogantly and wilfully, causing his harem to be so unpeaceful.
“What matter does Brother Lin have in Great Zhou?” Emperor Yan of Zhou asked calmly. This fellow had directly charged into the Great Zhou Palace and hadn’t taken him seriously at all.
He had to get rid of Lin Guanyu before he ascended.
“Zhou Xuanji will definitely come on the day of your ascension. When that time comes, I will kill him in Great Zhou,” Lin Guanyu said coldly. He was not afraid of offending Emperor Yan of Zhou at all.
Hearing this, the Ministers and Generals were sent into an uproar.
Was Zhou Xuanji going to come?
Xitan Changshi frowned as he asked, “Why will he come?”
Lin Guanyu pointed at Zhou Yalong and said, “Zhou Xuanji has a maidservant whose clan was slaughtered by Zhou Yalong. Out of the entire city of tens of thousands of people, only she survived.”
Hearing this, everyone’s expressions worsened, including Emperor Yan of Zhou’s.
Zhou Yalong’s eyes were wide as he hurriedly explained, “I killed people from the Ghost Emperor Clan, the descendants of Xinhao Sect’s Huang Ming. Apart from that, I’ve never committed a slaughter in a city before.”
Despite this, everyone continued to look at him with strange gazes.
This matter of slaughtering in a city was simply deranged.
If this kind of person became the Emperor, what kind of outrageous atrocities would he commit?
However, apart from Zhou Yalong, there was no one who could become the Emperor.
“You can reside in Great Zhou for now,” said Emperor Yan of Zhou. He did not look at Zhou Yalong and kept his gaze on Lin Guanyu.
Lin Guanyu gave a slight nod and stared back at Emperor Yan of Zhou, a trace of killing intent hidden in his eyes.
Beside the lake.
“Breathe fire!” Zhou Xuanji crossed his arms as he ordered.
The red Qilin standing on his shoulder stretched its head forwards and burped, sending out a puff of smoke.
Seeing this, Zhou Xuanji looked quite disdainful as he asked, “Why are you so weak?”
The red Qilin looked quite wronged and covered its head with its paws.
Daoya Old Man called out from the distance, “It was born only recently; don’t push it too much. When you were young, did anyone push you like this?”
Zhou Xuanji shot him a glance and replied, “I killed an Inner Pellet demonic cultivator when I was two years old; what do you think?”
Daoya Old Man was startled and did not know how to reply.
You win this time, boy!
Zhou Xuanji continued to train the red Qilin, and only let it off after an hour or so.
The little fellow felt quite aggrieved and ran to play with the Three-eyed Drought Rodent.
Zhou Xuanji shook his head and smiled before looking toward the horizon, and his thoughts floated to Great Zhou.
After thinking for a while, he continued to cultivate.
In the blink of an eye, one month passed, and Zhou Xuanji started to break through to the Astral Projection stage.
Everyone gathered over, holding their breath in anticipation.
“Once Revered Teacher breaks through to Astral Projection, he will become like a dragon soaring in the sky and he will be able to sweep across the world,” Xiao Jinghong said in worship. In the future, when they ran into the Xinhao Sect or Haoqi Alliance, they would no longer have to be worried.
The others nodded.
Daoya Old Man stroked his beard and said, “When he breaks through to Astral Projection, perhaps he will be able to enter the top 50 of the Northern Wilderness’ Top 100. When he breaks through to Great Realization, he will definitely be number one in the world.”
After saying this, he sighed with amazement.
This little monster—even though they saw Zhou Xuanji every day, whenever they thought about his talent and strength, they could not help but marvel.
Zhou Xuanji sat beside the lake, and waves of spirit energy flowed into his body.
Currently, he was examining the inside of his body.
For the Astral Projection stage, one had to open their nine acupoints and be able to project their Astral Spirit.
If one could project their Astral Spirit, it would be able to absorb spirit energy and become stronger.
He was currently opening the acupoints in his arms.
The nine acupoints were in one’s four limbs, head, abdomen, chest, and back.
There were twin acupoints in one’s back, but it was not as difficult to deal with as the acupoint in one’s heart.
Now that Zhou Xuanji had already reached the Flesh Sword level, opening his nine acupoints was not difficult.
It took him half the time of an incense stick to open an acupoint and seeing this, Daoya Old Man’s face could not help but spasm.
“I’m not going to watch anymore; this is too depressing.” Daoya Old Man turned and waved his hand as he left.
The others watched with great interest, so as to prepare for them breaking through to Astral Projection in the future.
“It doesn’t feel like breaking through to Astral Projection is very difficult,” Jiang Xue mumbled. The others felt the same way.
Chongming Demon Monarch slapped his hand against his head and said, “That’s just him. I’ve seen many cultivators turn into a whirlwind of blood and die as they tried to break through to Astral Projection.”
The Astral Projection stage was a big trial on the path of cultivation. No matter if it was humans or demons, their death rates were incredibly high when breaking through.
Given that Zhou Xuanji had a powerful body and the Tianxia Map protecting him, his life was not in danger at all.
Time continued to pass.
A while later, Zhou Xuanji suddenly opened his final acupoint. Following this, his body trembled as he felt himself flying up.
He looked down and found that his body was still on the ground, and everyone else was nervously looking at his body.
“So this is the projection of the Astral Spirit?” Zhou Xuanji was quite amazed and felt that he was incredibly light, unaffected by gravity.
He looked out and saw some solitary spirits and ghosts.
Some were at the bottom of the lake, some were floating above trees, and some were hidden within the grass.
“Damn, there are so many ghosts around us? And it’s broad daylight too… Aren’t they afraid of the light?” Zhou Xuanji yelled. No wonder why he always felt an eerie wind when he was trying to sleep at night.
Following this, he calmed himself down and started to fly about.
After he had projected his Astral Spirit, his speed became even faster.
He leaped over many mountains and lakes, and felt quite delighted.
The feeling of traveling about in spirit form was simply too refreshing, and he could not help but sigh in amazement as he recited, “The mayfly flies between the heavens and the earth, a mere grain within the vast sea; life passes in a flash, the Yangtze River is enviable for being endless; flying and roaming like an immortal, embracing the bright moon.”
Back where the others were, Jiang Xue looked at the unmoving Zhou Xuanji and asked nervously, “What’s wrong with him?”
“He projected his Astral Spirit. Don’t worry, he’ll be fine,” Chongming Demon Monarch explained, a look of amazement on his face.
God damn, this breakthrough looked as easy as drinking water.
A while later, Zhou Xuanji’s Astral Spirit returned to his body, and his spirit energy greatly increased.
“Analyzed that the Sword Owner has reached Astral Projection stage. Gacha begins!”
“Ding! Congratulations, the Sword Owner has obtained [Silver] Bookcutter Sword, [Amethyst] Frost King Sword, Ruyi Purple Cloud Robe!”
Zhou Xuanji’s eyes widened and he looked quite confused.
The Bookcutter Sword again?
Wasn’t it broken?
And, its grade had increased?
“There are multiple versions of some swords,” the Sword Spirit explained, which Zhou Xuanji felt was quite far-fetched.
However, he was quite pleased to obtain another Amethyst legendary sword.
More importantly, he could finally use the Heavenly Soul legendary sword!
The two swords’ information appeared in front of him, and he ignored the Bookcutter Sword’s information.
Sword Name: Frost King Sword
Description: Created from Ten Thousand Year Icy Flames, it contains boundless ice-attribute energy. It can absorb all snow and ice in the world and can freeze the surrounding 100 miles with a single slash.
Zhou Xuanji gave a pleased smile and started to stabilize his aura.
The others came over and surrounded him as they noisily asked questions.
A while later, Zhou Xuanji got up. After breaking through to the Astral Projection stage, he felt that his spirit energy had greatly increased and that his overall strength was more than five times greater than before.
