As Gu Qing Shan watched white goose flew away, he suddenly had a thought.
It couldn’t be that Bai Hua Fairy doesn’t want to cook that she took Qin Xiao Lou in as her disciple, right?
He quickly shook his head, telling himself he was thinking too much.
As Xiuxiu saw both white goose and second brother left, she tilted her head and asked: “Senior brother, how about coming to my place, I’ll make you some juice?”
“No, second brother is already motivated like that, so I myself need to work hard and cultivate too” Gu Qing Shan smiled and said
Xiuxiu heard that, tilted her head again, then suddenly: “Then, how about I and senior brother cultivate together?”
“Sure, you’re welcome to do so”
Looking at her fidgety state, Gu Qing Shan quickly agreed.
Having been encouraged, Xiuxiu put down her snack bowl and trotted across Gu Qing Shan.
“Senior brother, we’ll spar a bit ok?”
“I’m only qi training stage 6, so senior brother is stronger, please hold back ok?”
“I’ll do my best to be careful” Gu Qing Shan very seriously promised.
Having been assured by Gu Qing Shan, Xiuxiu relaxed herself.
“Then, I’ll go first” she said.
Gu Qing Shan swung his sword, entering a defensive stance and smiled: “Come”
Xiuxiu’s hands glowed a dark color as she made a hand seal.
Since she was a bit anxious, her hand seal couldn’t finish before the dark glow disappeared.
“Oops, I’ll try again” Xiuxiu panicked.
“No worries, remember to keep yourself steady when making hand seals, no need to think too much about other things” Gu Qing Shan guided her.
“Ah, ok, thank you senior brother” Xiuxiu once again made her hand seal.
The dark glow appeared again on her hands.
As he saw that, Gu Qing Shan was a bit curious.
Metal-Wood-Water-Fire-Earth, Wind-Lightning-Light-Dark-Sound, these are the 5 main Elements and mutated Elements.
Mutated Elements themselves are very rare, and Dark is one of the rarer of them.
There’s a specific way to use this Element’s spirit energy, and the results they bring are quite similar to God’s Chosen Skills.
Even more interestingly, even if two cultivators have the same Dark element and use the same hand seal, the results they get are very different.
Xiuxiu spent a total of 4 breaths to finally finish her hand seal.
Then she triggered it, saying: “Come!”
The space around started to warp and boil, like something was struggling, trying to get out.
A minute later, space really did crack open.
A grey, featureless bird flew out, headed straight to Gu Qing Shan.
Following the bird was another 20 other grey birds that looked just like it.
Gu Qing Shan shouted: “Come!”
He swung his sword, hitting one grey bird straight on.
It immediately broke apart into black smoke.
As Gu Qing Shan raised his sword, about to fight against the birds.
But the crack behind them widened.
Another flock of birds flew out from it.
After that were grey wild dogs, then grey tigers.
These are all monsters created through Dark element channeling the world’s essence.
Hordes of monsters rushed towards Gu Qing Shan.
As Gu Qing Shan’s inner sight passed through them, he couldn’t help but feel amazed.
Who knew, Xiuxiu’s spell was actually one to open the gate for an army of thousands, Gu Qing Shan have never seen such talent for Dark element spirit energy before.
Going by numbers alone, there are about over 1000 creatures here.
As for power, being hit by Dark element won’t hurt your body, but it’ll directly affect your soul vessel.
And the soul vessel being hurt is extremely troublesome.
To deal with such enormous amount of monsters, the best method would be his Secret Art: Water Flow Severance.
Once Water Flow Severance is unleashed, all the monsters are guaranteed to become dust.
But since Xiuxiu is standing behind them, if he doesn’t control it well, he might harm her.
Crescent Slash is fine too ———-but Gu Qing Shan doesn’t want to kill her, so he can use literally anything except that one.
Seeing the monsters rush him like that, Gu Qing Shan gritted his teeth, and ran away.
No choice, all his abilities are focused on swords play, if he can’t use powerful sword skills, he doesn’t have any spells to use, so he can only run.
The monsters gave chase.
Xiuxiu stood there, releasing her hand and questioned: “Where is senior brother going? Does he have something urgent to do?”
Gu Qing Shan brought the horde of monsters running around Bai Hua Palace.
Occasionally he would also stop, put away his sword and use the Night Rain to clear out some of the monsters that are too close.
After a while, when he saw the chance, he used his Secret Art to finish off the monsters at once.
“Xiuxiu, you’re really good” Gu Qing Shan walked back, breathing heavily.
“Am I? Thank you senior brother, actually I still know one more spell”
Being praised, Xiuxiu laughed happily.
Then she put her hands together, made another hand seal to cast a spell.
Since her mood was very good, her speed increased greatly. So fast that Gu Qing Shan couldn’t even say “Stop” in time.
Not even one breath later, her spell has already been unleashed.
Space cracked open again.
This time was different, as numerous dark grey demons jumped out from the crack in troves of hundreds.
Gu Qing Shan silently complained, then jumped forward, as his sword slashes turn into shadows, weaving between all of them, using a total of 700 slashes before he killed all the demons.
Xiuxiu opened her eyes wide: “Senior brother is also very strong”
Gu Qing Shan sat down on the spot, reluctantly smiled, so tired that he didn’t even want to speak.
At twilight, Qin Xiao Lou appeared again.
Just like every day, he made another full table of delicious food, laughing pridefully: “I knew you couldn’t bear to leave me”
Actually we just couldn’t bear to leave your spirit cooking, Gu Qing Shan and Xiuxiu silently retorted in their minds.
This night, Bai Hua Fairy also returned.
She sat at the top seat, while her disciples sat around, the entire sect having dinner together.
“Shifu, where did you go?” White goose asked.
“A few matters at the frontline, all the cultivator sects showed up to discuss a few things” Bai Hua Fairy answered.
Seeing that, Gu Qing Shan was extremely curious.
Splitting yourself into another person to talk to yourself, what exactly would that feel like?
Sadly, only Bai Hua Fairy possess such an unthinkable Divine Skill in the entire cultivation world.
As Shifu is here, all the disciples ate silently without saying anything.
After dinner, when Gu Qing Shan wanted to help Qin Xiao Lou clean the dishes, Bai Hua Fairy called them back.
“There’s one thing today that you all need to know”
They all stopped their feet.
Bai Hua Fairy said: “This year’s semester examination will come early”
“For what reason? The semester examination hasn’t changed for hundreds of years” Qin Xiao Lou asked in confusion.
“Because we lack people, or to be precise, we lack cultivators” Bai Hua Fairy answered.
All of them went silent.
This isn’t hard to understand, since all the cultivation sects banded together like this, there couldn’t be any other reason except to plan a counterattack and wipe out the demons once and for all.
They don’t have any other choice.
Because demons and demon beasts are an endless horde, while humanity only have so many cultivators, if the frontline war situation doesn’t stop and keep on going like this without recruiting any new blood, many smaller sects would soon be without disciples.
In the past life, this is one of the reasons why cultivation world fell in the first place.
But the bigger problem would have to be humanity’s high-tier fighting strength.
Qin Xiao Lou sighed: “There’s some new Sainted realm demon beasts every now and again, yet humanity only have a total of 3 Saints after so many years”
“I really wonder, is reaching Sainted realm so simple for demon beasts?” he asked in annoyance.
“That truly is strange” Bai Hua Fairy said as she thought deeply about something, “there’s another strange fact that you might not know if I didn’t tell you”
They all raised their heads.
“Sainted realm demon beasts mostly win through sheer numbers, one of them alone isn’t even a match for one of my hands”
“Sorrow and Xuanyuan both have the same feeling”
“Our hands are really tied ——-we are obviously stronger than they are, but there are simply too many of them that we can’t kill them all at once. Not to mention, we can never use all our strength, because as soon as we make any mistakes, and any of us were to die, humanity’s strength would greatly decrease, resulting in a very dangerous situation”
“Last time, to help Qing Shan save the two people, I used my flesh incarnation. But Sorrow and Xuanyuan doesn’t have this ability, so every time they go out, they must always put themselves in danger”
“That is also the reason why we Saints can’t easily act”
A nonchalant complaint from Bai Hua Fairy made Gu Qing Shan know another great secret that he didn’t know about in the past life.
