Qin Chuan’s lecture reignited the old ladies’ fighting spirits.

It was a universal desire to look attractive, especially for people of their age.

Now, all the old women had grit their teeth, posing in a way where their five centers were facing the sky.

Qin Chuan felt heartened when he saw them working so hard.

In his eyes, these old ladies were his students.

Time slowly passed.

The old women were slowly getting used to things.

At first, they could only stay in the position for three to five minutes.

Now, most of them could do at least ten minutes. Some of the better ladies could even last for half an hour.

When Qin Chuan saw that the old ladies had no problem with meditating, he started to teach them the breathing technique.

Inhalation and exhalation were skills that cultivators had to master.

Without mastering this breathing technique, cultivating would be very arduous.

The so-called inhalation and exhalation was a special breathing method.

Qin Chuan taught them the breathing Evergreen Technique.

Since the Evergreen Technique was a stage one cultivation technique, the breathing technique was relatively simple.

After Qin Chuan finished demonstrating the technique, the old ladies were eager to give it a try.

They had all been consecrated by the sect and had their spirit roots awakened. Thus, they didn’t have much problem learning.

For a time, there were only the soothing sounds of breathing coming from the training hall.

The old ladies were hardworking and conscientious.

To master the breathing technique as quickly as possible, they completely forgot about the aching pain of meditation.

Qin Chuan looked satisfied and smiled.

At the same time, the old men who were bathing in the Spirit Spring were chatting and laughing.

They were lively as well.

As time passed, drastic changes took place in their bodies.

They finally understood why the old women wanted to stay.

It was because soaking in the Spirit Spring made one younger, not just look younger.

To elderly like them, they valued youth over anything else.

From time to time, they would look back at their younger selves.

They had all fantasized about turning back time and returning to their youth.

Presently, although time had not reversed, their bodies slowly grew younger.

Everything felt like a dream.

As they continued to soak, most of their hair had turned back to jet-black. Those who were bald or had a bald patch had grown hair.

Wang Zhixing was no longer as calm as before.

After discovering the changes in his body, he couldn’t help but doubt himself.

Is this not an illusion? Does this really exist?

If that is the case, how can it be explained using science?

He wanted to have a chat with his friend who studied neurology.

Two hours later, Qin Chuan appeared at the Spirit Spring.

When he saw how happy the old men were, he knew they wouldn’t want to leave either.

Because of this, Qin Chuan closed the Spirit Spring again.

Once the spring ran out of water, the old men grew just as agitated as the old women had been earlier.

Qin Chuan casually came up with a reason and said that there was a time limit to the Spirit Spring.

When the group heard that, they accepted it.

Moments later…

Qin Chuan brought the old men to the training hall.

The old men were very surprised to see the old ladies meditating.

“Young man, what are they doing?” an old man asked.

Qin Chuan replied, “Cultivation!”

“Cultivation?” The old men were confused.

Qin Chuan explained what cultivation was, as well as the benefits of it.

The old men were stunned after listening to him. They had thought that Qin Chuan was a fraud.

They still didn’t believe in cultivation.

But, when they saw the hard-working old ladies were, they recalled their small fight from earlier. It lit a competitive fire in the hearts of the old men.

Without waiting for Qin Chuan to arrange them, the old men sat down on their own.

Qin Chuan hurriedly said, “Sirs, meditating requires the soles of your feet, your palms and the top of your head to be facing the sky. Look at the ladies, they are all in this position.”

The old men took a look and said, “But that will be tiring!”

Qin Chuan replied, “But look at the ladies! They look happy and at peace. How is it tiring?”

The old men took a closer look. It was true.

Since they can do it, we can do it too. No, we have to be even better.

The old men were full of fighting spirit, and they forcefully bent their hands and feet.

For a time, cracking sounds could be heard in the training hall.

Upon seeing this scene, Qin Chuan didn’t know whether to laugh or cry.

He had to admit that competitiveness was a good motivating factor.

A few minutes later, the old men were meditating with their five centers facing the sky.

They looked pained, but they all persevered, gritting their teeth.

When Qin Chuan saw that their postures were up to standard, he then taught them the breathing technique.

The men were very eager to learn. After obtaining the breathing technique, they immediately tried it out.

Wang Zhixing had a Heavenly Spirit Root and was extremely gifted. He grasped the technique within 10 minutes.

Those old ladies had been practicing the breathing technique for more than two hours and had yet to master it.

From this, one could see the importance of spirit roots to cultivation.

Half an hour later, spiritual energy surrounded Wang Zhixing’s body, and threads of spiritual energy entered his body through his five centers.

“As expected of a Heavenly Spirit Root, he is already drawing Qi into his body. He can be considered a cultivator now.

“Haha! I’ve guided my first Immortal Cultivator.”

Other than joy, Qin Chuan also felt a sense of accomplishment.

At the same time, a system prompt sounded in his mind.

“Wang Zhixing succeeded in drawing Qi. Host has received 10 points.”

“Congratulations, host. You have unlocked an achievement, [The First Cultivator], reward: 10 supreme-grade Qi Gathering Pills.”

Qin Chuan’s eyes lit up. “That exists?”

Then, he asked, “System, does this mean that I get points when I successfully guide people to cultivate?”

“Yes! Furthermore, when Immortal Cultivators make a breakthrough, the host also receives points.

“So, if you wish to obtain more points, please pick up your pace and guide the entire nation to cultivate.”

Qin Chuan felt motivated.

He knew how important points were.

At this moment, everyone was seriously practicing the breathing technique.

Qin Chuan had nothing else to do.

He took out the 10 supreme-grade Qi Gathering Pills that he had just been rewarded.

[Qi Gathering Pill: Increases one’s True Qi and cultivation. The higher the quality, the better the effects.]

“Can this pill be swallowed?” Qin Chuan asked the system.

“Yes! You can also give it to the clone.”

Qin Chuan asked, “What’s the difference if I eat it or if the clone eats it?”

“As the saying goes, every good has its bad—every medicine has its side effects. If the host consumes a lot of the pills, your cultivation foundation might be affected.

“However, there are absolutely no side effects if the clone were to use it. The only difference is that there will be less of an enhancement effect compared to when the original host consumes the pill.”

Qin Chuan understood the pros and cons. He didn’t think any further and gave all the pills to his clone.

After the clone ate the 10 supreme-grade Qi Gathering Pills, the progress bar above the clone’s head lit up.

Qin Chuan’s cultivation level went from the third class of Qi Refinement to the eighth class.

Qin Chuan was shocked. He didn’t expect the advancement to be this great.

If he had a few more pills, he would have made a breakthrough.

There were Qi Gathering Pills in the Merchant Shop.

However, those of supreme grade were slightly more expensive.

One supreme-grade Qi Gathering Pill cost 500 points.

Qin Chuan only had 110 points now, so he couldn’t buy any right now.

He wasn’t in a hurry to raise his level.

Right now, he was mainly focused on his old students.

Some of them were Earth Spirit Roots—although not as good as Heaven Spirit Roots, they would be able to start drawing Qi into their bodies in a day.
