Chapter 43: Little Xiao is Definitely Ill
Translator: Atlas Studios Editor: Atlas Studios
However, one thing did not match.
It was said that after a high-grade Divine Body failed to awaken, the body would become weak and would definitely fall ill.
Gong Ziliang did not feel any discomfort in his body. Instead, he looked even more charming.
Apart from this, the other points were talking about Gong Ziliang.
However, from Shangguan Yan’s current reaction, it seemed that he did not target Gong Ziliang.
Another thing was…
“You’re talking nonsense again…” Gong Ziliang clicked his tongue and said.
Shangguan Yan’s expression changed again when he heard that. He smiled awkwardly and said, “Ah, this… I actually said it again. Look at my mouth.”
Looking at Shangguan Yan’s sloppy and talkative mouth, Gong Ziliang paused and was a little speechless.
Then, he poured another cup of water and drank it all. After a long trip, it was normal to be thirsty.
Then, he asked, “However, speaking of which, you’ve been secretly investigating for some time. Do you have any suspects?”
When he heard this, Shangguan Yan’s eyes immediately lit up. He nodded and said, “There is, but I still have to observe for a while. I’m a little unsure.”
“Who?” Gong Ziliang paused again. Could it be that Shangguan Yan had discovered him?
To advance from the Martial Body Realm to the Qi Refinement Realm in three days, this speed was truly shocking.
He poured another cup of water and pretended to drink it calmly.
Shangguan Yan raised his head to look at Lin Xiao’s residence outside the window and said very seriously, “Little Xiao!”
Gong Ziliang immediately choked and spat out the water he had just drunk.
Little Xiao? Lin Xiao?
Ever since we joined the Profound Heaven Sect, we had been doing chores like wood chopping and fire for who knows how long.
Now, you’re saying that he’s a genius?
What the heck!
At this moment, Gong Ziliang looked at Shangguan Yan as if he was looking at a fool.
Clearly, Gong Ziliang could not accept this answer at all, and he did not dare to believe that Lin Xiao was a genius.
If Lin Xiao was a genius, then what was Gong Ziliang?
Moreover, before Gong Ziliang activated the Legendary System, Lin Xiao’s realm was not even as high as his. He had only cultivated to the fourth-stage Martial Body Realm. However, he had felt the bottleneck to advance.
This could not mean that he, Lin Xiao, was a genius. There was definitely a mistake somewhere.
At this moment, Shangguan Yan gestured for Gong Ziliang to calm down, and he whispered while approaching, “I know you think I’m joking because you’re handsome and confident, but you have to listen to me carefully.”
As he spoke, Shangguan Yan’s eyes sank. He was extremely serious and solemn, and it seemed that this matter was really not simple.
Looking at this expression, Gong Ziliang was a little surprised. He did not seem to be brainless.
Shangguan Yan continued to ask, “Come, come, come. Let me ask you, do you still remember what Little Xiao’s original realm was?”
When he heard this, Gong Ziliang was stunned. He slowly said, “I remember that he’s at the fourth-stage Martial Body Realm. Moreover, he has even felt a bottleneck to advance to the fifth-stage Martial Body Realm.”
As soon as he finished speaking, Shangguan Yan hurriedly asked, “Right! But do you know that when I saw him in the morning… Guess what stage it was?”
“He advanced to the fifth-stage…?” Gong Ziliang was a little lacking in confidence now as he replied.
A few days ago, before activating the system, he had seen Lin Xiao. He was at the fourth-stage Martial Body Realm. It was impossible for someone to advance several stages in three or four days like him.
“Let me tell you, he’s now at the sixth-stage Martial Body Realm!”
Shangguan Yan was very surprised. To be honest, he could not believe that Lin Xiao’s improvement would be so fast.
Hearing this, Gong Ziliang was surprised.
He advanced two stages in just a few days! It was really too abnormal!
Could it be that he was like Gong Ziliang? Seriously…
It seemed that he too…
In less than a week, he had broken through from the fifth-stage Martial Body Realm to the second-stage Qi Refinement Realm. It seemed that he was the most abnormal one…
According to Shangguan Yan… Lin Xiao was a prodigy, so Gong Ziliang was definitely a prodigy too… right?
“What’s wrong? Why aren’t you saying anything? Are you shocked too?”
Seeing Gong Ziliang in a daze, the corners of Shangguan Yan’s mouth curled up slightly as he asked with a sinister smile.
“Yes… Perhaps Little Xiao had a fortuitous encounter. Look, when I came back from going down the mountain to enter the mortal realm, I also broke through to the Qi Refinement Realm. It’s normal.” Gong Ziliang replied with a dull expression.
When he heard this, Shangguan Yan’s expression froze before quickly changing.
All of them took off!
“If you were seriously ill, I would definitely hand over your name and think you’re the chosen one. However, you’re not ill while Little Xiao is.” Shangguan Yan said enviously.
Gong Ziliang leaned back and smiled thoughtfully. “I suspect that you’re scolding Little Xiao. Moreover, I have evidence. However, speaking of which, Little Xiao is sick?”
“Sigh!” Shangguan Yan sighed softly and said, “The matter started from that night three days ago. That day, Little Xiao went to the back mountain to train. After a long time, he became thirsty. Then, he drank a mouthful of water under the waterfall in the back mountain of our outer sect. Guess what happened in the end?”
“Don’t keep me waiting. Hurry up and say it!” Gong Ziliang said impatiently.
At the same time, he had a feeling that behind Shangguan Yan’s words, it seemed to be related to him.
This was because… hadn’t he charged funds into the system three days ago to activate the Legendary System? At the same time, after strengthening the Iron Bones, an unknown black liquid appeared on his body, and it was extremely smelly.
Then, he went to the back mountain waterfall to take a bath. As for Lin Xiao, he was drinking water under the waterfall. This…
‘What the heck!’
His bath water had special effects?
Gong Ziliang could not believe it.
“I heard that from Little Xiao.”
“That night, after he drank a few mouthfuls of water, he increasingly felt that the water did not taste right. It was bitter, astringent, and smelly. His entire condition became worse and worse.”
“When he returned to his residence, he fell asleep on the bed. Just like that, he slept until the next night!”
“During this sleep, no matter how we shouted for him, he did not wake up. However, his expression is very uncomfortable.”
“Oh, right, right!”
“When he returned, he was covered in a stench. If we say that he fell into a feces pit, everyone will definitely believe us.”
“When he woke up, he… Ahhhh… I’m so jealous. Little Xiao actually directly advanced to the fifth-stage Martial Body Realm!”
“However, just yesterday, he actually advanced to the sixth-stage Martial Body Realm!”
“The speed of his advancement is really too terrifying. As for me, I ate a high-grade Yellow-rank Spirit Essence Pill and actually failed to break through to the Qi Refinement Realm. Damn!”
Just as Shangguan Yan was complaining non-stop, a bang suddenly sounded from the house outside the window.
Then, a strong breeze blew past.. Spiritual qi visible to the naked eye surged into the outer sect courtyard from all directions and surged towards the eastern residence.
