Forget Our Resentment, Breaking Through To The Golden Core Realm

Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation

The corner of Chu Kuangren's lips twitched as he looked at that long whip and the expression Li Yao had on her face that said 'Senior Martial Brother, hurry up and whip me'.

Was it possible that this Li Yao had masochistic tendencies?

Truthfully speaking, the original owner of this body held resentment toward Li Yao in his heart. After all, he was bedridden for two days since the other party had seriously injured him. 

Chu Kuangren had transmigrated and the original owner's memories, so it made sense that he would not have a good impression of Li Yao.

However, he wasn't the original Chu Kuangren in the end, so his hatred toward Li Yao wasn't as strong as it previously was.

Chu Kuangren muttered irresolutely to himself for a moment before he raised his palm. He circulated his spirit energy and brought it down. This palm contained the overbearing sword qi unique to the Heavenly Crepe-myrtle Sword Art. Its might was enough to cut a mountain and split the earth apart.

Bang!

This palm struck Li Yao right in her chest.

Li Yao did not dodge nor hide. 

"I took a blow from your palm in the past, and you took one from me today. Let us forget about our past resentments from now on. You can go now."

He didn't hold back in the slightest when he attacked with his palm just now. He knew that at least four or five of her bones were broken from Li Yao's caved in chest. 

Fortunately, Li Yao wasn't weak either; she was at the Golden Core Realm. If that weren't the case, it wasn't impossible for her to die on the spot from the force.

Chu Kuangren thought that dealing with the matter this way should be good enough. Not only did he avenge the original owner of the body, but he also reflected the magnanimous side of him.

"Thank you for sparing my life, Martial Brother!"

Li Yao barely propped herself up. She knelt on the ground and kowtowed at him before she staggered away.

 "Young Master, your benevolence is exceptional," said Little Bing who was standing beside him.

She also heard about what Li Yao did to Chu Kuangren. Even if Chu Kuangren killed Li Yao on the spot, she wouldn't be surprised.

"This is benevolence?"

Chu Kuangren shook his head as he found this ridiculous.

It seemed like this world was already accustomed to something like killing people, so he, too, had to get used to it in the future.

Thankfully, he retained the memories of the person who originally owned this body so it would not be too difficult.

The matter with Li Yao was only a brief interlude.

Chu Kuangren continued immersing himself fully in his cultivation. One day, he actually heard that Li Yao released all of the handsome male companions she had collected.

It was as though her nature had completely changed after the beating he gave her with his palm.

Chu Kuangren never took this matter to heart.

A few days later.

A pillar of sword qi suddenly shot up into the air from Towering Heaven Daoist Palace.

The swords within a 50-kilometer radius of the Daoist Palace buzzed simultaneously!

The abrupt occurrence of this anomaly startled many people.

"It's another anomaly!"

"The aura is coming from Towering Heaven Daoist Palace, it's Chu Kuangren."

"Even if he has a Supreme Daoist Physique, this is too frightening, isn't it? There's been one strange occurrence practically every day! Is he even going to let people cultivate?"

Inside Longevity Hall located in Black Heaven Sect.

Honorable Xuan Qi abruptly opened his eyes. "This is a Golden Core aura. He actually broke through to the Golden Core Realm so quickly?" said Honorable Xuan Qi in a suspicious and doubtful tone.

.

Even if he had a Supreme Daoist Physique, this was too quick.

The strange occurrences left as fast as they came.

Chu Kuangren restrained his aura in the Daoist Palace. A stream of purple light flitted across his pupils as he slowly opened his eyes.

"I finally broke through to the Golden Core Realm," Chu Kuangren muttered.

.

He successfully went from being an ordinary martial artist at the Qi Refinement Realm to successfully making a breakthrough to the Golden Core Realm in less than ten days. This kind of advancement in realms was almost outrageous.

"Kuangren, come and see me."

At this moment, a voice rang in Chu Kuangren's ears.

It was Honorable Xuan Qi.

Chu Kuangren tidied himself up and went to Longevity Hall.

"Kuangren, you broke through to the Golden Core Realm already?" asked Honorable Xuan Qi as soon as they met each other.

"Yes, Master."

At first, Honorable Xuan Qi was only guessing. However, he couldn't help but reveal a hint of shock in his eyes after he heard it right from Chu Kuangren's mouth.

He had really broken through to the Golden Core Realm!

The speed at which he achieved this was too fast.

When he thought about it, he was an outstanding cultivation genius in the world himself, yet it took him close to two years to break through from the Qi Refinement Realm to the Golden Core Realm.

Chu Kuangren had done it in less than ten days!

This cultivation speed was simply terrifying!

"Master, are you alright?" asked Chu Kuangren when he saw the dumbfounded look on Honorable Xuan Qi's face.

"Cough, cough." Honorable Xuan Qi came back to his senses and said, "That's not bad, but you should avoid being arrogant and impatient by all means. Cultivation is like a boat going against the current; you will decline if you don't move forward. Your realm will advance at lightning speed in the early stages, but there are plenty of cultivators who can't advance a single step forward in the later stages. Rather than being fast, building a good foundation is of the utmost importance."

"Your disciple understands." Chu Kuangren nodded.

He had a Supreme Daoist Physique and was cultivating a Saint Technique as well. Even if he did not deliberately develop his foundation, he would have the finest one amongst those in the same realm.

"Since you've already broken through to the Golden Core Realm, head to Sword Mountain and find yourself a sword. You have the Exquisite Nine Orifices Sword Heart, so they will easily acknowledge you as their master even if they are sacred weapons. That's fine, as long as you don't move Sword Mountain away," Honorable Xuan Qi chuckled and said.

"Yes."

After that, Honorable Xuan Qi gave Chu Kuangren the directions to Sword Mountain.

Before returning to his Daoist Palace, Chu Kuangren listened to Honorable Xuan Qi and went to Sword Mountain as he planned to find a weapon that was suitable for him.

Sword Mountain was a valuable treasure of the Black Heaven Sect that was close to the level of Emperor Weapons. Countless precious and famous swords, and even sacred weapons, were kept on it.

He could feel sword qi pressuring him just by getting close to it.

Chu Kuangren arrived at the foot of Sword Mountain.

Even before he officially stepped inside, Sword Mountain trembled for him as though it was welcoming his arrival.

Many disciples clicked their tongues in wonder at this strange occurrence and there was no end to their envy.

"Sword Mountain has moved several times in over ten thousand years, but it has moved abnormally several times in a row now because of this Chu Kuangren. As expected of someone with a Supreme Daoist Physique."

"He's Chu Kuangren, the one who was newly promoted to the position of Lead Disciple. Sure enough, he really is exceptional. Look at his face and aura, he really is a dragon amongst humans."

"The speed of his advancement in rank from outer sect disciple straight to Lead Martial Brother is outrageous. Reaching heaven in a single bound is nothing more than this too."

"F*ck, there's actually someone who's even more handsome than I am in this world?"

Chu Kuangren resembled the most dazzling moon in the darkest of nights. No matter where he went, he grabbed the most attention.

"Sigh, I was exceedingly handsome even beforehand. With this Banished Immortal Aura added on to that, I reckon I won't be able to have peace wherever I go in the future."

Chu Kuangren shook his head.

This was even more tiring than being a celebrity like the heavenly idol and so on from his previous life.

Chu Kuangren ignored the disciples along the way as he headed straight for the peak of Sword Mountain. The closer he got to the peak, the higher the ranks of the swords.

All kinds of swords appeared before his eyes.

Epees, thin swords, broadswords, dual swords, flexible swords...

There were gorgeous ones or simple ones, and even strangely shaped ones... 

Chu Kuangren was dazzled looking at the swords.

Not only that, but he seemed to be able to sense the emotions of these swords. It was a kind of mysterious feeling that was difficult to put into words.

Every sword here was telling him that they wanted to get close to him.

"This Exquisite Nine Orifices Sword Heart really is impressive. This ability to get close to all of the swords in the world alone is enough to make countless sword cultivators yearn for it even in their dreams," Chu Kuangren couldn't help but say with some deep emotion.

Some swordsmen sought to attain the realm of fusion with a sword. This required extreme agreement and compatibility between the owner and the sword.

Chu Kuangren could have all the swords get close to him naturally. Fusing with a sword was like eating and drinking to him; it was too simple.

There were nine swords sunk in the limestone at the peak of Sword Mountain.

Every sword was exuding sword intent that was incomparably cold to the bone.

These nine swords were part of the Ten Great Sacred Swords in Black Heaven Sect. As for the tenth one, it was in the hands of Black Heaven Sect's Daoist Nan Gonghuang.
