Demon God

Chapter 6 - Being Reborn

Translated by Udeze
Edited by Ilesyt


It was already dark.

Xiao Han was in his stilt house at the base of the mountain where he lived.

“Whssss”

Xiao Han stood up unhurriedly, and stepped out from his medicinal herb bath barrel.

At today’s event, Xiao Han had suffered some heavy blow and was hit severely by Tu Yifei, a top novice disciple. But he also found out that not only did he survive, but he thoroughly understood the meaning of “invincibility”.

Xiao Han felt that the beatings he got from Tu Yifei were more like a blessing for him. His whole body was full of energy and he clearly felt that his strength was growing, and his body became as light as a swallow.

“Hahaha, with this amazing cultivation technique, my past problems are solved, the more I get hit, the more I become stronger; all the beatings I will receive from now on will be a source of my power, strengthening my muscles, skin and bones. Even my body becomes lighter. Finally I, Xiao Han, can show them what I really am.” Said Xiao Han to himself, while slightly exercising his body and throwing a light punch; and with only this small movement, the bones in his body produced a low sound of crackling and vaguely sounded like explosion like beans fried in the pan.

Additionally, after having a bath and washing all the filth from all over his body, Xiao Han saw that his skin became lighter and smoother than before.

When Xiao Han saw his chest, there were a few green bruises on it, they were the “gifts” from Tu Yifei. Xiao Han slightly touched the bruises and gritted his teeth as he felt the acute pain from the wounds.

Xiao Han inhaled a long breath and tried to circulate the energy according to the Golden Immortal Body technique, and started to meditate all the first 10 stances. A warm energy surged up from his heart and quickly flowed to the wounds on his body.

Gradually, Xiao Han saw his bruises and all swollen parts on his slowly fade, become smaller and finally dissipate. The whole recovery process could be seen by the naked eye…

“Hahaha”, Xiao Han laughed in a happy mood, he dressed up immediately and walked downstairs.

The moon was right above his head as the night was on its zenith… in the silence of the night, Xiao Han’s ears could hear a lot of snoring come from all the stilt houses around the circular open field. He could even hear some walking targets talk in their sleep.

“Huh? It seems like my hearing is a lot better than before.” Xiao Han secretly mused, he quickly left the open area and continued walking toward a small valley on the hillside, which was located between two hills.

There was a tower like rock and some peanut trees around the small valley, and sometimes the owls were crying and flying around the area.

Xiao Han braced his feet and bent his body, with his right fist suddenly punching out in the empty air. This stance was the initial move of The Bone Refining Bull Fist style. Then Xiao Han started exercising the complete set of Bone Refining Bull Fist in one breath.

In the past, when he exercised this fist style, his footwork was not steady and his punches were weak, it couldn’t even be considered as a movement from a martial arts technique. But tonight, every punch he performed emitted whip-like sounds in the air, and faint explosion-like sounds could be heard every time he changed his stances. Even thumb-sized stones under his feet were forcefully thrown in all directions, and hit the surrounding trees with a loud impact..

It was as if every inch of his muscles and his bones contained a powerful force that he couldn’t even fully utilize.

After exercising one full set of the fist style, Xiao Han held his breath, and stood motionlessly on one foot, with both of his hands raised up high above his shoulder. Eventually he tried to exercise the crane style.

“Boom…. bang ~~~ boom bang ~~~”

There were sounds emitting from under Xiao Han’s skin, the sound was like a explosion that was dampened by a cotton pillow! It seemed that the sound was caused by the movements of his muscles and his bones, the explosion-like sounds seemed dampened by his skin.

Every action that Xiao Han made, even if it was only slight movements, now emitted faint explosion-like sounds.

“Well, great, great… my skin became more resilient like leather, it seems like this is what the disciples said was the Skin and Meridian Strengthening Layer.” Xiao Han nodded again and again, confirming his discovery on his “new” body.

After some time, Xiao Han who was standing motionlessly for a while, suddenly rushed out toward the mountain peak. And then he launched three punches in sequal, his actions created the sound like a heavy object being pushed and grinded. Xiao Han let out a tiger-like roar as his fist hit a big branch from a thick tree in front of him. The trunk immediately cracked, and the big branch was broken apart while all the smaller branches on it were sent flying.

“I don’t know if I hit those novice disciples, could they be hurt by my punch?” Xiao Han let out his tongue and licked his lips.

Xiao Han didn’t tarry for long, as he repeatedly practiced a full set of Bone Refining Bull Fist, and continued improving his moves and technique, and finally he ended his practice session by exercising the 10 stances of the Golden Immortal Body cultivation technique.

 A few hours later, Xiao Han was sleeping in his stilt house, a happy and peaceful mind was reflected by the smile on his sleeping face.

Early in the morning, Xiao Han was doing the usual chores with other walking targets and went to the mountain peak training field to get beaten by novice disciples in training. But now, Xiao Han anticipated his usual “chores” more eagerly than before, since now the beatings for him were not something that made him fearful, but were a source of pleasure he was eagerly anticipating. Since it meant that his muscles and bones could be tempered and quenched, it was also his only chance to cleanse his marrow and harden his bones, and forcefully discharging more impurities within his body. (TN: our MC really become masochist)

It was like he had unlimited resources for cultivating martial arts. Thus even if he was severely beaten and constantly insulted after getting beaten in the mountain peak training field, he threw away all the distracting thoughts, put aside his self esteem and endured the insults and the beatings from all the disciples.

Every time he got a severe blows from novice disciples, Xiao Han deliberately let out a pig-like scream full of agony, and made all kind of awkward actions, so nobody was suspicious about his body’s special conditions.

Thus, Xiao Han’s practice schedule was set. That is, getting beaten by Cloud Rain Sect’s disciples during daytime, and practicing Bone Refining Bull Fist and Golden Immortal Body during night time. (TN: What a life!)

Three months later.

The night reached its peak…

At the mountain valley near the area where Xiao Han and other walking targets lived…

“Roar….!”

Xiao Han roared loudly, he was like a tiger rushing out into the dense jungle. His bones exuded an explosion like sound; his muscles were bulging and his skin was covered with layers of powerful Qi circulating all through his body like the Yangtze River, his aura was endlessly raising and exuded a terrifying pressure. At this time, if there were people around, they could feel that Xiao Han was as strong as a whale in the sea, while his movements and ferocity were like wolves and tiger. Xiao Han used one of his legs and furiously bombarded a big tree with kicks. Every time his legs moved; a piercing sound exuded, he kicked a thick tree a few more times until it broke and fell.

Then Xiao Han rushed and launched a series of punches to another big trees, while his feet moved in rapid movements, his footwork alone destroyed the surrounding grasses and vines. He was like a lumberjack hurricane, with hammer-like fists and axe-like legs, the big tree in front of him wasn’t sturdy enough for his powerful strikes. It was split and crashed down to the ground.

“Huff”

Xiao Han continued his practice and exercised the Bone Refining Bull Fist. Right now when he performed this technique, a raging bull illusion almost vividly manifested above his head.

If the other walking targets and the disciples saw his performance tonight, they wouldn’t even believe that he was Xiao Han, who was a half-dead walking target that usually gets beaten every day. His self confidence, his looks and his body exuded an entirely different powerful aura. If one was to compare the usual walking target Xiao Han in daytime and the current Xiao Han, it was like comparing the heaven and earth…

In these three months, Xiao Han bitterly got beaten during the daytime, and practiced his cultivation at night time, and now, he was no longer the originally half-dead walking target, but a whole different person. His muscles, his skins and his bone became very strong and contained tyrannical power, and although he still retained his slender body, his actual body mass was 3-4 times heavier than before.

“Bone explosions!”

Xiao Han shouted, and instantly, ring-shaped energy burst out from his body and bombarding the mountain surface, creating a big explosion.

“Bang!”

This explosion was like the effect “Qi Shi” and “Tu Yifei” had performed before, albeit much more powerful and faster, even the sounds of his bone explosions were much clearer than the two. The sudden explosion destroyed the mountain surface, and the sound was like millions of thunderbolts striking down, rocking the ground and causing a small landslide.

“Quack~~~Quack~~~Quack~~~”

A group of birds, nested in the woods near Xiao Han, flapped their wings, and flew high to other parts of the mountain. The remaining birds who were restless and made quacking noises, suddenly stopped as if there was some kind of threat approaching them.

Then…

“Bang! Bang! Bang! Bang!”

Xiao Han continuously emitted bone explosions one after another, he tirelessly concentrated his qi. His qi power turned the surrounding atmosphere around him chaotic. Pebbles and sand chaotically revolved around the newly created qi whirlpool. As Xiao Han became more immersed in concentrating his qi, the explosion sounds became louder and ring-like illusions were created around his body, they became more vivid as more layers of sound waves emerged one after another.

It was only after there were 200 bone explosion layers did Xiao Han stop.

“Huff~~~”, Xiao Han’s face was stiff, but satisfaction and exhilaration could be seen on his face. He let out a smile as he recalled his recent performance, “Great, 200 bone explosions, to think that I, Xiao Han, actually reached this level.”

Xiao Han knew from the novice disciple’s conversations that martial artist’s cultivation in Body Refining Realm was divided into several layers.

The Body Refining Realm.

The first layer was Muscle Strengthening Layer; many could only achieve this layer because they had external support from elixirs and medicinal herb, which was easy for disciples with strong backgrounds. Some other materials, such as medicinal herbs and pills, improved and enhanced the fitness and the muscles to a new height, thus laying a solid foundation to advance to the second layer,

The second layer was Skin and Meridian Strengthening Layer. Most Cloud Rain Sect’s novice disciples could attain the second layer by taking the sect’s Skin and Meridian Strengthening Pill. Only by achieving this state could they cultivate the third layer, The Bone Refining Layer.

Most novice disciples in Cloud Rain Sect’s could cross the first two layers, but the quality of their cultivation foundation was indicated by the amount of bone explosions they could produce.

A normal novice disciple with no strong background, no matter how hard and diligently he cultivated, could only reach twenty to thirty bone explosions. Only after cultivating for several years and reaching more than 50 bone explosions, could they continue to advance.

People such as Qi Shi and Tu Yifei were one of the few outstanding novice disciples from tens of thousands novice disciples in Cloud Rain Sect. Their cultivation had reached more than 90 bone explosions, which was only a step away from the peak of Body Refining Realm. And as in Qi Shi’s case, he could only reach this level by taking the Tiger Bone Strengthening Pill, despite his claim that he reached the level by his own efforts.

When one’s cultivation reached a 100 bone explosions, they could be said to have successfully crossed the Bone Refining Layer and could advance to cultivate the next cultivation realm, The Body Refining Realm.

However, the amount of bone explosions a person could achieve in Bone Refining Layer determined their cultivation’s future and the most important foundation in their martial path. Emitting explosion-like sounds and producing 100 bone explosions were the minimum threshold for martial artists that could be said to have successfully reached the peak of Bone Refining Layer. The quality of one’s cultivation was also determined by the resiliency of their muscles and skin, as well as the width of their meridians.

If one could produce more than a minimum threshold of a 100 bone explosions, such as 120 explosions, 150 or even more, it could be said that his foundation will be more solid, and he could advance further with no significant obstruction in their martial path. Of course this premise was not absolute, as some disciples may perhaps be mediocre in their first steps in the first layer of the Body Refining Realm, but there are many possibilities and occurrences that many may also became stronger and enhance their cultivation quality in the second and third layer, these situations have occurred for a number of times.

Xiao Han in this case, produced 200 bone explosions, far higher than this generation of Cloud Rain Sect’s top novice disciples.

“It would have been very convenient if I could become an outer disciple…” said Xiao Han. His brows twitched as he continued thinking.

“Today, from my exercise, it seems that I have hit a bottleneck. I have cultivated The Bone Refining Layer to the most extreme I could achieve, if I don’t enter the sect, become an outer disciple and acquire a cultivation technique for Body Purifying Realm, my martial path will be halted…”

In three months time, Xiao Han was badly beaten by many novice disciples, but as it was part of the Golden Immortal Body cultivation, he gladly took the beatings as it made all his muscles and skin be strengthened far more than other disciples. At the beginning, the beatings effect was very obvious, as it contributed a constant supply of energy he could absorb, even suffering from small punches and kicks gave its own benefits to his cultivation. But later as his muscles and bones became stronger, the beatings he got from the novice disciples only gave him less and less pain, eventually he could even ignore them. And in recent days, when he was hit by novice disciples, Xiao Han felt nothing, he could not even absorb the slightest power from it.

Moreover, when he cultivated the Golden Immortal Body technique by himself at night, the effect was far less than before, and it was getting weaker the more he exercised. Even if he diligently exercised every day and endured the boredom, the warm energy in his body just didn’t get stronger anymore.

Xiao Han realized that he must advance his cultivation to the next Body Refining Realm as his cultivation in the Bone Refining Realm had reached the topmost level.

“If I were to understand those disciples conversation, Body Refining Realm was considered as the true entry into the martial path, only then, various martial arts techniques could be exercised, and it’s said that they were far more powerful than this foundation realm. However I don’t have any knowledge about higher realms, and my identity forbids me to acquire martial arts technique to advance to the next realm.” Xiao Han rubbed his head with his hand.

“That Xue Jianfeng had completed his Bone Refining layer three years ago, and he became an outer disciple now, Today I think that I also cross the threshold in this realm and I need to advance to a higher realm, Moreover, I need medicinal herbs, elixirs, and acquire more advanced martial arts techniques. If I don’t become an outer disciple, the gap between me and him will grow larger, and my lifelong revenge will be harder to achieve.”

“As for my present strength, becoming an outer disciple should be very easy, what I don’t have right now is only a chance”, said Xiao Han while he walked toward his stilt house.
