Realizing This Is A Wuxia World After Cultivating For 300 Years
Chapter 8 - Is This the Swordplay of an Ordinary Pugilistic World?
Chapter 7: Youre a Good Person!
Translator: Henyee Translations Editor: Henyee Translations
She was just a 14 year old girl.
One moment, she was practicing martial arts in her own courtyard. She could even smell the fragrance of her mothers cooking. The next moment, she appeared in another place or even another world.
How would she react?
Of course, it was a mixture of fear, terror, confusion, and various other emotions.
If it were an ordinary girl, she would have been scared silly on the spot.
But Jiang Qiqi was different.
She had been intelligent since she was young and was a famous prodigy.
At the age of 14, she was already helping out with the familys business and managing a shop alone.
If not for the fact that she had been weak and sickly since she was young and was a girl, she could have surpassed her father and completely controlled the family business.
Even so, she managed to make the shop she was in charge of the most prosperous one in the family.
It far surpassed her six brothers.
Hence, Jiang Qiqis ability to adapt to sudden situations was extremely strong.
When she realized that she had suddenly come to a strange place and was facing a stranger, she immediately thought of a way to deal with it.
It was best not to let the other party detect her fear when she was at a disadvantage.
If she showed fear, it would easily stimulate the other partys emotions and increase the psychological advantage of the other party, making him even more fearless.
This would undoubtedly speed up the rate at which she would suffer.
Of course, she did not want to offend the other party because of her words.
Hence, she began to heap on praises.
This was good, and that was good too!
In any case, as long as it was related to Cui Heng, she would praise him.
And as long as she started talking, she would go on and on.
It was so that the other partys thoughts would follow her initiative.
In Jiang Qiqis opinion, with Cui Hengs ability to teleport her here, there was no way she could resist his strength.
In such a situation, the best way was to win the other partys favor.
She would try her best to prevent herself from suffering any harm.
At the very least, it would be good if she could buy some time.
At the same time, she was probing for information on Cui Heng in her conversations.
She wanted to find a way to save herself from this situation.
However, Jiang Qiqi soon discovered that Cui Heng didnt seem to be falling for her words.
Not only did she fail to guide his thoughts, she didnt even get any valuable information. Instead, she was shocked by this magical house and almost couldnt hide her fear.
What happened next exceeded her expectations.
After dinner, Cui Heng arranged for her to stay in a bedroom but left without doing anything.
She couldnt figure out what this strange and magical person wanted to do.
She had even less idea why she was here.
All these emotions eventually gathered into fear.
Especially in this bedroom where she was alone, it made her emotions even more agitated.
Hence, she became like this.
After a long time.
Jiang Qiqi slowly raised her head. Her originally bright eyes were now red and swollen from crying.
She got off the bed and opened the curtains, only to realize that the moon was already hanging high in the sky.
The pitch-black night sky was like ink, and there were no stars that flickered, making the dark sky seem boundless.
In the middle of the night sky, the bright silver moonlight shone through the window and landed on her exquisite face.
This kind of night view caused a subtle change in Jiang Qiqis state of mind. Recalling Cui Hengs appearance during the day, she suddenly stopped crying and smiled. “Perhaps this Big Brother Immortal isnt a bad person.”
Regardless of whether she was consoling herself or finding a path for herself out of helplessness, she finally felt much more relaxed. What followed was a strong sense of fatigue and absent-mindedness.
Jiang Qiqi suddenly staggered two steps to the side.
She hurriedly held onto the windowsill.
Only then did she prevent herself from falling.
However, her breathing became hurried, and her charming face flushed unnaturally. Her petite body could not help but tremble, and her pair of small feet tensed up.
“Oh no, I didnt go home today, and I didnt take any medicine…” Jiang Qiqis consciousness started to fade.
Her body had been weak since young and she needed to take medicine every day to regulate her condition.
Furthermore, as long as her emotions fluctuated violently, it was very easy for her illness to act up. She would directly faint, and even her pulse would become extremely weak, like a dying person.
For the past few years, she had relied on practicing martial arts to calm her mind and stabilize her emotions. On the other hand, the medicine she took every day had the effect of alleviating this illness.
Her mood swings were unprecedentedly intense today. Furthermore, she did not take any medicine, so her condition worsened the moment it relapsed.
“Daddy, mommy, am I going to die?” Jiang Qiqis heart was filled with extreme sorrow and helplessness. She had already entered a semi-conscious state.
Right at this moment, she suddenly felt a warm sensation rising from her lower abdomen. In the blink of an eye, it flowed through her limbs and bones, making her feel as if she was soaking in a medicinal bath.
A moment later, Jiang Qiqi woke up. To her surprise, she didnt faint, and her condition didnt worsen either. In fact, she even felt much lighter, and her condition was unprecedentedly good.
It was as if the illness that had plagued her for more than ten years had completely disappeared.
It was too amazing!
“Was it because of the bowl of noodles I ate earlier?” She recalled the feeling just now and could confirm that it was this warm current that had saved her. This made her feel extremely guilty.
“That bowl of noodles was cooked by Big Brother Immortal for me. Im afraid he had long seen through my bodys problems, so he cooked those noodles for me to eat and cured my illness.
“I dont even know where my illness came from. My father and mother searched everywhere for famous doctors, but they couldnt find a way to cure it. Now, its just a bowl of noodles… Hes really a deity!”
At this point, she had already let down her guard greatly.
After all, if such a powerful Immortal had any evil intentions towards her, those little thoughts and machinations of hers would be useless.
Furthermore, this Immortal had treated her illness. He should be a good person.
“If thats the case, maybe Ill really be able to return in 12 days?”
Jiang Qiqis heart was filled with anticipation, and at the same time, the guilt she felt became even stronger. She felt more and more that she was judging a gentlemans character with a petty heart.
No, it should be using the heart of a little girl to measure the depths of an Immortal. She corrected herself again.
“Tomorrow morning, I will go and apologize to Big Brother Immortal.” Jiang Qiqi made up her mind and finally calmed down.
After adjusting her emotions, she felt that the bed and blanket here were actually very soft and comfortable. Before long, she fell asleep.
Actually, Cui Heng had not intended to use the bowl of noodles to treat Jiang Qiqis illness.
He really only cooked the two bowls of noodles for them to eat.
At that time, it just so happened to be time for his dinner as well. At most, he only had the intention of cooking more noodles since it was convenient.
The only special thing was that the noodles had been grown from the Beginners Farm. They contained a trace of subtle spiritual energy that could nourish the body.
For a Foundation Establishment cultivator like Cui Heng, that bit of spiritual qi could be said to be insignificant, almost nonexistent.
But to people like Jiang Qiqi who were weak since young, it was a life-saving medicine.
Even if it was not to the extent of completely recovering her body, it was enough to remove the pain from her illness.
Cui Heng spent the night in the cultivation room.
Although the Meditation Chamber gave him a 10% increase in cultivation speed, it was not very useful.
Now that he had completed the early-stage Foundation Establishment, he could only increase his Dharmic powers by a little from his usual cultivation.
It was not of much use to break through the early-stage Foundation Establishment.
“The problem I can feel now is that my Dharmic powers are not agile enough. I can only follow the cultivation technique step by step. This causes my Dao foundation to become like a pool of stagnant water. Its difficult to activate, so its naturally difficult to break through and become stronger.
“Although I have developed some simple circulation methods for my Dharmic powers, I can only barely make my Dharmic powers more flexible. The effects are limited.
“If only I knew Dharma spells, or some other means that could change the way my Dharmic powers operate, perhaps I could make my Dao foundation more flexible.”
Cui Heng was summarizing his cultivation experience and pondering about the method to break through.
The Beginners Immortal Cultivation Technique was indeed a beginners tutorial. There was really only training content and no spells.
He had been ruminating on this problem like this for quite some time, but he still had no clue on a solution.
Tonight was the same.
Cui Heng sat there until dawn, but he still didnt have any ideas.
He walked out of the cultivation chamber as usual, intending to head to the Beginners Farm to get some food for breakfast.
However, the moment he went downstairs, he saw the pure and pretty girl standing at the top of the stairs.
She seemed to be waiting for him.
“Big Brother Immortal!” Jiang Qiqis eyes instantly lit up when she saw Cui Heng coming down the stairs. She jogged over and took a deep breath before bowing repeatedly, mimicking the manner of the martial artists she had seen before. She said respectfully, “Please forgive this little girl for being rude yesterday.”
“…” Cui Heng was instantly stunned, then he laughed lightly. “What are you doing?”
“Ah, I-I… that, yesterday I treated you as a bad person.” Jiang Qiqi scratched the back of her head in embarrassment. “My mother said that girls should be more vigilant.”
“Haha, I see. Thats not wrong.” Cui Heng had actually seen through her thoughts yesterday, but he just didnt say it out loud. “Then am I a bad person?”
“You are a good person!” Jiang Qiqi said with incomparable seriousness.
However, just as she finished speaking, she shook her head and corrected him solemnly. “No, youre a good Immortal, a good Immortal big brother!”
“Then Ill be your Big Brother Immortal.” Cui Heng laughed heartily as he politely refused thegood person card.
“Big Brother Immortal, to express my apologies, how about I perform a sword dance for you?”
Jiang Qiqi seemed to feel that her verbal apology was not sincere enough, so she said, “This is the sword technique that an old Daoist priest taught me. Not only can it be used to nourish ones health and prolong ones life, its also very beautiful to watch.”
She had thought about how she should apologize last night.
Its just that a verbal apology was too weak.
However, she realized that she did not seem to have any special abilities. She couldnt possibly help Big Brother Immortal with matters of conducting business right?
In the end, after thinking about it, it seemed that only her sword dance could barely be considered a passable skill.
“I dont need a sword dance…” Cui Heng subconsciously wanted to refuse. Letting a 14 year old girl perform a sword dance for him felt a little like child abuse.
Although Jiang Qiqi was naturally beautiful, and her appearance and figure was rather mature, in his eyes, she was still a little girl.
However, before he could finish his words, an idea flashed in his mind. He suddenly asked Jiang Qiqi, “You said that this sword dance is actually a kind of nourishing sword skill. Can this be considered a kind of martial technique?”
