7 Killing a Ghost for the First Time

Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation

"System, activate the Cultivation Simulator."

[To enable the simulation, you may select only three of the following Cultivation Talents.]

[Currently available Cultivation Talents: "Medicinal Spirit Sacred Body", "Family Bloodline", "Taoist Five Thunders Ritual", "Pet Expert" …]

None of the talents that appeared this time were outstanding, so Zhao Hao just selected three of them at random again.

[Mahayana Holy Body (Red Talent): All your basic attributes increase by 300. This is a unique physique that is rarely seen in a million years. It is the strongest sacred body in the martial arts world. Your aptitude to practice all kinds of Cultivation Methods is the world's highest. Your attack power is twice the original attack power.]

[Born Arhat (Red Talent): All your basic attributes increase by 300. You were born an Arhat, a candidate for a Buddha. You can comprehend Buddhist divine skills on your own and cultivate all kinds of Buddhist Cultivation Methods.]

[Family Bloodline (Purple Talent): A random family bloodline, hence random specific effects.]

[Taoist Five Thunders Ritual (Purple Talent): Your attack has a 1% chance of unleashing the Five Thunders Mantra.]

[Pet Expert (Blue Talent): Your success rate of capturing pets increases by 50%.]

[The simulation starts now.]

[On the first day, you snuck into the dwelling of Widow Zhang and found an untitled sword-fighting manual. You started practicing it.]

[On the second day, you snuck into the residence of the village head and found a manual on the "Vajra Body Defending Divine Skill". You began cultivating the divine skill.]

[On the third day, you practiced the sword skills during the day and cultivated the Vajra Body Defending Divine Skill at night.]

[On the fourth day, a bandit attacked the village. You killed him effortlessly and obtained an Iron-Slashing Sword.]

[On the 15th day, your sword skills achieved sublimity. With your Cultivation Talent "Born Arhat", the sword-fighting technique you had learned automatically evolved into the "Arhat Demon Subjugation Sword-Fighting Technique". Your Vajra Body Defending Divine Skill reached perfection. With your Cultivation Talent "Born Arhat", it automatically evolved into the "Skills of the God Acala".]

[On the 16th day, you had already mastered two Buddhist Cultivation Methods. You decided to go to the mountain to take revenge. You first killed all the demons and the doppelgänger of the Evil God in the ruined temple. Then, you started hiding to observe the movements of the evil ghosts.]

[On the 17th day, you continued to make a careful observation for a day.]

[On the 18th day, you finally found an opportunity. Before any team of evil ghosts approached the Evil God temple, you entered it and killed the Evil God. Then, you began to wait. Sure enough, not long after, a team of evil ghosts arrived. With two Buddhist Cultivation Methods, you effortlessly killed the evil ghosts and blocked the sneak attack of the severed left leg. While blocking the attack, you accidentally triggered the Five Thunders Mantra. Rumbling thunders struck down, and the broken limb shattered. Suddenly, a series of wails and howls came from the depths of the mountains. You sensed danger and fled back to the village.]

[On the 19th day, over 100 evil ghosts came to the entrance to the village. The leader was a hanged ghost with a Cultivation Base of five hundred years. They did not seem to dare to enter, but they still surrounded the village. The leading hanged ghost asked the villagers to hand you over. The village head came to your place and fell into deep thought as he looked at the Buddhist symbol on your head. After a long time, he asked you to resolve the trouble you had caused yourself.]

[On the 20th day, the hanged ghost continued gathering more evil ghosts. There were already over 300 evil ghosts gathering outside the village. You did not want to implicate the villagers, so you held the Iron-Slashing Sword in your hand and charged into the crowd of evil ghosts. Using the Arhat Demon Subjugation Sword-Fighting Technique and the Skills of God Acala, you killed all the evil ghosts effortlessly, including the hanged ghost. However, you suddenly sensed danger. All the containers brought by the evil ghosts cracked open, and the severed body parts in them began to reassemble on their own. A male corpse with a missing left leg appeared in front of you. You fought with him for three days and three nights. In the end, you died from exhaustion.]

[This Cultivation Simulation is over. You can permanently retain a Cultivation Talent and extract it into the real world.]

[The Cultivation Simulation has ended. Simulation Time: 20 days. System Cooldown Time: 20 minutes.]

Zhao Hao squinted, thinking that he had collected more and more information.

Based on the information he had received so far, the dismembered male corpse seemed to be the big boss behind those evil ghosts. The male corpse was very powerful. Even though he had been missing a leg, they had still been neck and neck in the battle.

As for those evil ghosts and the newly appeared hanged ghost, Zhao Hao did not care about them as he could kill them with a flip of his hand.

"Hmm… I should kill as many evil ghosts as possible in the mountains. There are five severed body parts in total. As long as I destroy two or three of them, this male corpse shouldn't be a match for me anymore."

With his exceptionally high intelligence by virtue of his cultivation talents, Zhao Hao instantly thought of a solution.

Just as Zhao Hao was about to rest for a while before starting another simulation, Zhao Hao suddenly perceived an evil aura appearing somewhere not far from his house.

With the Cultivation Talent "Born Arhat", Zhao Hao was particularly sensitive to evil auras. Thus, he walked out of the house and directly headed toward the evil aura.

The place where Zhao Hao lived was only a prefecture-level city, and his place was in the suburbs. So, there were few tall buildings. Most of them were single-story houses.

After walking for about 1,000 meters, Zhao Hao saw a river in front of him. The river was not deep, and it was still in broad daylight. There was nothing wrong.

However, in Zhao Hao's eyes, there was a figure in the depths of the river. It stayed still in the water with no sound or movement at all.

"Eh? There's actually a ghost in this world?"

Zhao Hao thought that the evil aura he sensed emanated from this water ghost.

It was the first time Zhao Hao had ever seen a real water ghost, but he did not feel any fear in his heart. With the Cultivation Talents "Mahayana Holy Body" and "Born Arhat" forming his current physique, a mere water ghost was nothing to him.

He walked straight into the river and headed in the direction of the water ghost. Only when he got close enough did Zhao Hao realize something. Although the messy hair of the water ghost covered its face, he could still vaguely tell that it was a woman. He could not see her face clearly, though.

The eyes of the female ghost lit up when she saw someone approaching her. The evil aura on her became a little more intense, and she immediately reached out her hands to grab Zhao Hao.

"Hmph, I can see a lot of resentment on you, evil creature. You must've harmed many people. Let's see how I'm going to subdue you…"

Zhao Hao did not know any spells. He instinctively reached out his hand outright, but he grabbed the neck of the female water ghost at an extremely rapid speed.

[Ding! The Blue Cultivation Talent selection pool has expanded.]



Two big question marks appeared in the minds of Zhao Hao and the female water ghost at the same time.

Zhao Hao wondered how he could be so fast, how he caught a ghost with his bare hands, and why a Cultivation Talent could be captured from a ghost.

On the other hand, the female water ghost wondered how Zhao Hao could possibly see her and how she had been caught just like that.

The female water ghost instantly counterattacked. The hair on its back suddenly grew longer as it charged toward Zhao Hao. Zhao Hao became anxious, so he subconsciously tightened his grip on the female water ghost.


Zhao Hao crushed the female water ghost before she could respond to it.


"What? Did I just meet a fake ghost???" Zhao Hao was utterly baffled.
