He after quietly lying on the ground for more than an hour, Yang Kai stood up, although he had just used up all his strength.
An hour before, Yang Kai felt it was like a dream. He really could not believe this was true.
Quietly he punched himself and felt the pain.
“In the end what was it? I wonder what history this black book has…” He muttered to himself in helplessness.
Waiting until his heart stopped beating, he suddenly found himself somewhat different from before. For he couldn’t eat three, fulfilling meals a day, and every five days he would suffer beatings. Thus his body bones are weak, but now he clearly perceived that his bones were full of vitality. A surge of energy, filled with warmth, slowly circulated inside and outside, his body.
Moving slightly, the bones burst out a crystal-clear sound. Making it seem like a melody being played. And Yang Kai, who was hurt today, couldn’t feel that pain anymore.
Aware of this, Yang Kai quickly roll up his sleeves, and opened his clothes. Looking closely, he found that his body no longer had any bruises and injuries. They had all disappear! Even those old wounds were healed!
He felt as unblemished as a new-born baby!
Rubbing the places that previously held wounds, dead skin fell. This revealed the new tender skin underneath, like a baby’s but far healthier.
“I cry ……” He swallowed down a cold lump; thinking of that Golden Skeleton in his body had such strong recovery ability!
Then feeling his own strength and found that he was still at the Tempered Body Third Stage did no change. This discovery somewhat made him a little disappointed.
Rivers and allusions, with secrets known only to insiders, this type of story Yang Kai heard much during his childhood. He knew in world there are many men eligible to jump past the dragon gate, becoming powerful and famous.
But after all it’s just a story. [How many people can really be happy and gain such luck and results in this world? Those senior experts with greater strength, the more I could not bear to lower themselves with earth and buried. Always finding inheritor before death. I want to jump off a cliff drill a cave and encounter events, such unlikely things will happen?]
But the current problem had happened to him. That black book must have had some great background, and that Golden Skeleton must be extraordinary.
This can be said as his good fortune. It could also be said as fate.
The four sentences on the black book’s first page: Proud Gold Body, rules the fence, indomitable spirit, will it descend!
If he didn’t pick up the black book, but another picked it up, they too will treat it was garbage. Unable to prise open like Mt. Tai. Precisely because he picked it up, and used it as a pillow for a year, it felt his body’s unyielding and tough nature; unlocking the secrets of black book today.
In other words, this thing really is his first encounter, but it’s the first achievement that he obtained through his own hands. Thinking of this, Yang Kai suddenly burst out in comfort. [Isn’t this what they say, a mighty stead and a beautiful woman will be presented as a gift to the hero?]
“That black book.” Thinking of it suddenly, this book that was his pillow for over year. He wasn’t anxious to find out what it was nor how he found it.
Between being anxious, and somewhat weakened in the body, the black book abruptly appeared in front of Yang Kai, and snapped shut, falling to the ground.
He was stunned. Picking up the book, he furrowed his eyebrows while thinking hard. Struck by with an idea, a move from his hands the book disappeared. And a further move, made it appear again.
This scene was like a magic trick. One could see that Yang Kai’s face was very solemn, because he truly felt, that the black book could escape into his body with a single thought.
“This black book could it possibly be-be made from a Soulstone?!” After saying it, he nearly gave himself a fright.
Soulstone! This was considered a legendary gem.
Only when hundreds of millions of ghost gather in the abyss and with the help of vast amounts of human vitality, will it start to form.
Rumor has it, that this is how it was formed.
Inside the black stone, with misery of a hundred million lives, the living cannot enter, and green grass can only hope they can grow on it!
Those words were somewhat exaggerated. But for a Soulstone about 3.5cm x 3.5 cm to form, how many lives must be taken? The formation of this mythical rock was really cruel and bloody. What every life near it during its creation, will be dead within milliseconds.
Also the formation time is unimaginable, it could that up to a millennium or even ten millenniums.
Putting the formation process aside, this Soulstone can be considered a supreme treasure. That is because it has a very unique ability, for it can be melded with one’s body and also open up a dimension. This space is quite flexible; storing things will be no hassle.
Even though Yang Kai is only a Trial Disciple, a humble position, his experiences were not lacking. Not to mention, the story of the legendary Soulstone has been around more many years, anyone would know the story.
When he just obtained this black book, he didn’t think about this. Thinking about how the books went into his body, he thought about how the Gold Skeleton came out from the book. How could he not recognise the book’s material?
He immediately started sweating.
Soulstones were the things of legends, long extinct in the world. He didn’t think that he will be able to encounter one, let alone such a large one!
The legends only talked about 3.5cm x 3.5 cm sized Soulstones, for it was only found that large. Even at that size, it was priceless. But the only in front of him, was somehow made into a black book, that was 30 x 7 cm!
It’s value……was immeasurable!
If this news were to spread out, even if it’s the entire Han Dynasty, not mention a mere martial school, they will probably be crushed overnight to obtain it.
Yang Kai couldn’t help but feel his hands heat up. This heart had not forgotten the terror, but luckily it could be taken into his body. Otherwise he would be in great danger.
His body hiding this treasure, he swiftly escaped back into his hut. He dared not to be carelessly, while his heart beated madly.
He was becoming more and more excited, whilst also becoming more and more uneasy.
HIs strength was currently too low, so how could he guard this treasure? Even though the black book could be taken into his body, eliminating chances of being discovered. This didn’t lessen the worry in his heart.
Only practise, only the strong will be able to protect what is theirs! Thinking about what happened three years ago, Yang Kai’s eyes gradually calmed down.
All on his, without any support he came to this school. What is not for practise and strength?
Even though he obtained this book, he took it into his hands. On the first page was the proud Golden Body. Even though he didn’t know what use it had, it couldn’t be useless. This book also had so many pages; it couldn’t only possess this one Golden Skeleton?
