Chapter 120 - Ranking in the sect

Chapter 120 of 150 chapters

Xiuxiu didn’t hesitate at all, pulled out a communication talisman, spoke into it and sent it out.

Bai Hua Palace.

A flame flew into the Palace, landing right in front of Bai Hua Fairy.

“Something happened to Qing Shan!”

As soon as Bai Hua Fairy took the talisman, her face changed, then disappeared from the Palace.

“What? What happened?” Qin Xiao Lou only had enough time to ask that before seeing white goose also flying out.

He quickly dropped his utensils and also ran out.

Inside Orchid Hall, the rest of Bai Hua Sect stood around Gu Qing Shan.

Bai Hua Fairy took Gu Qing Shan’s hand, using spirit energy to circulate around his entire body, including his Dantian and Thought Sea, before returning.

“He’s fine, Xiuxiu” Bai Hua Fairy said.

“I, I saw that third brother—–“

“It’s not Xiuxiu’s fault, I was a bit too hasty, because there were no clear improvements, my face was a bit pale so it made Xiuxiu misunderstand” Gu Qing Shan quickly covered for her.

Seeing that it was just a false alarm, they all breathed out in relief.

“Come, let’s go eat breakfast” White goose urged everyone.

They all went out of Orchid Hall together.

Half-way there, suddenly they realized Gu Qing Shan was still sitting on the ground.


What’s happening with him?

“Qing Shan, tell me what happened to you?” Bai Hua Fairy asked with a serious face.

Because Shifu herself is asking that, Gu Qing Shan can’t not reply.

He sighed, then explained: “Yesterday I took the entire night to train with the speed technique”


“At first it was a bit hard, but I got used to it over time”


“I improved quite a bit with all the basic footwork”




“But this morning, I suddenly couldn’t remember how to walk anymore…”

Everyone’s expression became blank.

They were looking at Gu Qing Shan like some sort of weird animal.

So it’s like that, no wonder he just sat there with a frown, not moving one bit.

A strange silence filled the room.


Qin Xiao Lou was the first to break out in laughter.

White goose had already rolled on the floor laughing, his feet kicking the air.

Xiuxiu was empathetic: “Senior brother, it’s nothing to worry about, I believe you’ll very quickly be able to ——–pfft, ahahaha!”

“What are you laughing for! This is because he was training too seriously and got mesmerized!” Bai Hua Fairy glared angrily at her disciples.

Shifu, you’re also laughing, and laughing the most as well ———Gu Qing Shan silently complained in his mind.

“Hm, I did forget to tell you, while training this technique’s basic footwork, this will happen”

“Then Xiuxiu will be responsible to bring food for you during this time, after you fully comprehend the technique, you’ll naturally be able to remember how to walk” Bai Hua Fairy told him.

It can’t be helped, Gu Qing Shan sighed.

The rest of them stifled their laughter as they left.

Only Gu Qing Shan was left in Orchid Hall.

He mumbled: “This time I’ve really lost so much face. To think this technique actually made me became possessed like that”

Suddenly, a weak light appeared on the War God UI, there seems to be some sort of notification.

As Gu Qing Shan noticed, he quickly looked at the UI.

A line of text appeared on it.

“Because the user has tried so hard and showed clear comprehension of Ground Shrink, the cost for comprehending this Skill has been reduced”

“To comprehend Divine Skill: Ground Shrink, Soul Points cost: 998”

“Current Soul Points: 532/20”

…It only decreased by two.

Gu Qing Shan felt himself clearly exhausted and fell asleep.

After a few minutes he suddenly woke up.

He still doesn’t know what’s going on in Reality; and Anna’s safety is also not guaranteed.

How can he be depressed just because he couldn’t learn a skill quickly?

He stood up, and began training again.

At noon, Bai Hua Fairy and Xiuxiu went together to check up on him.

Seeing his progress, Bai Hua Fairy used herself as a model to teach him the details.

Having such a Shifu, Gu Qing Shan’s progress with the Skill was extremely rapid, many problems he had were quickly explained to him, speeding up his learning pace.

Time passed quickly, day after day. Before they knew it, 5 days had passed.

During lunch, Gu Qing Shan was able to walk by himself to Bai Hua Palace to eat.

Qin Xiao Lou was surprised: “You’re already here? That can’t be right, Shifu said that back then, when she learnt this Skill, she took ——–“

A loud bang was heard as Qin Xiao Lou was struck flying outside, crashed into a wall and slowly slid down.

Bai Hua Fairy said: “Qing Shan, do your best to learn, don’t let others distract you and affect your cultivation”

“Yes Shifu” Gu Qing Shan said.

After lunch, Gu Qing Shan returned to Orchid Hall to continue training.

After another two hours, the War God UI once again had a notification.

Gu Qing Shan stopped and looked at it.

“Because the user has tried so hard and showed clear comprehension of Ground Shrink, the cost for comprehending this Skill has been reduced”

“To comprehend Divine Skill: Ground Shrink, Soul Points cost: 532”

“Current Soul Points: 532/20”

“User has reached the requirements; do you want to comprehend it?”

Seeing those words, Gu Qing Shan was finally able to relax.

Finally, he can comprehend it.

Of course if he takes time and effort to continue training, he can keep reducing the cost more and more, but after so many days of constant practice, Gu Qing Shan couldn’t wait for it anymore.

“Comprehend” he didn’t even hesitate.

“532 Soul Points consumed, Current Soul Points: 0/20”

“Divine Skill: Ground Shrink, has been successfully comprehended, current progress: Primary”

“Ground Shrink (Primary): Using a special speed technique to ignore the constraints of space and immediately appear at appointed location within range”

“Current range: 3m”

After reading it through Gu Qing Shan sighed: “I can only use it in a radius of 3 meters, seems like Primary is still too weak, I’ll have to train more to raise the Skill’s level”

He then thought about his other Growth Skill, Shifting Flurry.

Both these skills require a player to constantly train it nonstop to be able to show its real power.

Gu Qing Shan looked again at his hourglass.

The sand was still falling very slowly.

Probably a few hours have passed in Reality.

“That’s fine then, if I temporarily can’t return anyways, I’ll just have to try my best and train!”

Gu Qing Shan decided just like that.

A few minutes later, he pulled out the Night Rain and began to practice archery.

And after he got tired with archery, he changed to practicing his speed technique, after he’s tired from speed technique, he’ll return to practicing archery.

For the next few days, Gu Qing Shan doesn’t even come to Bai Hua Palace to eat anymore.

If he’s hungry he eats Fasting Pills, if he’s tired he eats Spirit Pills to reduce his fatigue.

For ten days straight, he practiced like mad.

During that time, the rest of Bai Hua Sect also came to see him a few times.

After the final visit, everyone was sitting around the table.

Bai Hua Fairy thought a bit as she looked at Qin Xiao Lou, thinking: “Perhaps I should let Gu Qing Shan be the second brother…”

Qin Xiao Lou was frightened: “Shifu, you can’t mess up the ranking like that”

“Your cultivation isn’t high, you’re also not a sword cultivator like Qing Shan” Bai Hua Fairy said: “If one day you go out and gets bullied by someone, to call for help from your junior brother is too humiliating”

Qin Xiao Lou was stunned.

“Losing a fight and calling your junior brother to help out is pathetic, you’ll be ridiculed” Bai Hua Fairy slowly explained: “But if you instead call a senior brother to help, since a senior helping a junior is very normal, no one can say anything”

“That actually sounds… reasonable” Qin Xiao Lou crossed his arms, tilted his head and carefully thought about the pros and cons.
