Chapter 319 Double Enlightenment

From Zhou Wen’s careful observations, he found that the Dragon-Patterned Snakes were only acting on instinct . They were very different from the enlightenment he got from the stances of the dragons . However, for some reason, Zhou Wen found them somewhat similar .

As he killed the Dragon-Patterned Snake that approached Jiang Yan, he wondered why . Zhou Wen thought for a while before his eyes suddenly lit up as though he understood something .

A snake cultivates for a thousand years and transcends the tribulations to become a wyrm and a wyrm cultivates another thousand years to transcend the tribulations to become a dragon . The Dragon Transformation Art is about transforming a snake into a dragon . That means it’s not a dragon, so it naturally still retains a snake-like nature . I had forcefully imitated a dragon’s stance with Dragon Transformation Art, so it didn’t succeed . I always felt that my movement technique was lacking something . So this is what is lacking . Zhou Wen suddenly understood the problem of his movement technique .

Since he knew where the problem was, he now had to resolve it . It was not like before when he had no clue where to start .

To truly remove the influence of a snake and become the stance of a true dragon, I can only touch on the fundamentals . I need to make Dragon Transformation Art shed its mortality until it reaches the Dragon Transformation realm . As Zhou Wen engaged in battle with the snakes, he constantly used Dragon Transformation Art and kept trying to figure out the truth behind it .

There were two ways to raise a Primordial Energy Skill’s rank: One was to use Primordial Energy Skill Crystals to raise it . As long as the Primordial Energy Skill Crystal had a high rank, the absorption could directly raise the rank and reach Rank 9 .

Another method was to increase one’s familiarity and insight regarding the Primordial Energy Skill to raise the rank to a max of Rank 10 . Doing so was very difficult and slow . Apart from a few people like Lance, who was extremely talented and could comprehend the truth behind a Primordial Energy Skill until it reached Rank 10, the average person needed a lot of time to study and gain insight into it . It was much slower than using Primordial Energy Skill Crystals .

Dragon Transformation Art had a very low drop rate . To hope for a Rank 9 Dragon Transformation Art to drop would take ages Zhou Wen didn’t have the time to wait . Furthermore, what he needed wasn’t only Rank 9, but an extraordinary Rank 10 . Only by doing so could he truly match up to a dragon’s stance, allowing him to take on the stance of a true dragon .

As Zhou Wen observed the Dragon-Patterned Snake’s actions, stance, and habits, he recalled the stances of the nine black dragons and made comparisons . Gradually, he understood the differences between dragons and snakes .

Zhou Wen discovered that there were indeed many similarities between a dragon and a snake’s movement . It was no wonder snakes were called baby dragons in the East District . However, even though they were so similar, when humans saw a dragon, they would never mistake them for snakes . Apart from the differences in size, the most important difference between the two was the sublimity .

Zhou Wen constantly felt the difference between the sublimity of a snake and a dragon . It was a feeling that was impossible to describe using words . It could only be sensed with the heart and soul .

With the insight Zhou Weng gleaned, the way he moved didn’t change much . However, there was a slight difference in his movements . Every move seemed to have a flair to it .

Jiang Yan was focused on reading the tablet text, furrowing his eyebrows from time to time as if he was confused . Other times, he would reveal a look of enlightenment, appearing exhilarated .

However, not long after, Jiang Yan’s eyebrows furrowed deeper and tighter until they finally relaxed .

As Jiang Yan read the tablet text, he muttered to himself, “The Dragon Gate Twenty Pieces is representative of Chinese calligraphy from the Northern Wei dynasty-a classic piece of work from the Wei dynasty . It is forceful with its vertical and horizontal strokes, sharp like the edge of a blade . However, it’s not as squarish as a regular script . The words written on the top half and bottom half are in different scripts, and the sublimity in it is most difficult to grasp . Just changing the thickness of the stroke changes the script . To figure out something from the Dragon Gate Twenty Pieces and turn it into a technique is just too difficult . Just missing out part of the sublimity would make it lack greatly . ”

Jiang Yan thought about it but was unable to accurately grasp its sublimity .

Feeling a little impetuous, Jiang Yan knew that he couldn’t continue . Otherwise, with this mentality, he couldn’t reach a pure state of mind even if he had gained some insights .

Jiang Yan retracted his gaze and planned on resting for a while . He could read the tablet text again when his mind completely calmed down . If he couldn’t calm down, there was no harm in coming some other day .

He turned around and sat on a rock beside him . He took out the tea set that he had brought along with him . There was even a small brass charcoal furnace .

When he lit the charcoal furnace and heated the water, he brewed two cups of tea . Just as he was about to get Zhou Wen to drink it with him, his gaze landed on Zhou Wen and he couldn’t move his eyes away . He even forgot to take back his hand that was pouring tea . The tea in the teapot had overflowed the teacup, but Jiang Yan didn’t notice anything and just watched Zhou Wen’s fight with the Dragon-Patterned Snakes .

Instead of saying that Zhou Wen was fighting the Dragon-Patterned Snakes, it was more like a solo dance . His movement technique was vigorous and extraordinary with an indescribable sublimity to it .

Jiang Yan watched as he suddenly threw down the teapot in his hand, and ran to a stone wall . He reached out his finger and drew it across the stone wall .

His finger was like a blade as it tore through the wall . He wrote one word after another on it; the words looked like works from the Wei dynasty, but they were different .

Every stroke was like a knife’s slice, but they didn’t appear exceedingly sharp . They were straight and carefree .

“A thousand-year-long path for snakes, ten thousand years for a wyrm . The moment they show themselves, they would be flying dragons in the sky . ” When Jiang Yan finished writing the last word, Zhou Wen happened to let out a long cry as his body flew through the air, rising to the heavens like a dragon . His entire body seemed to have undergone a certain transformation .

The surrounding Dragon-Patterned Snakes retreated as though they were trembling . For a moment, no snake dared to attack Zhou Wenagain .

Although he didn’t take a look at the in-game information, Zhou Wen was certain that his Dragon Transformation Art had already broken through and reached Rank 10 . That feeling was indescribable .

“Junior, thanks to you, I managed to grasp something today,” Jiang Yan said with a smile .

Zhou Wen turned his head and saw the words Jiang Yan had carved on the wall . Although he wasn’t a connoisseur of calligraphy, he found them exuding a sense of familiarity . On careful thought, he understood that the words contained the insights of the movement technique he had just figured out .

“These words…” Zhou Wen asked with an odd expression as he looked at the words .

“This was what I wrote from observing your movement technique and the words on the Dragon Gate Twenty Pieces . It’s rather interesting . In the future, I’ll use it as my foundation and match it with the Dragon Gate Twenty Pieces to come up with a technique . Half the credit is yours . Why don’t you give it a name?” said Jiang Yan .

“I’m not good with names . It’s best you name it . ” Zhou Wen shook his head .

“There’s the word ‘dragon’ in Dragon Gate Twenty Pieces . Your movement technique has the bearing of a dragon, so it’s naturally necessary to have a dragon character . Together with our names, let’s call it ‘Dragon Wenyan . ” As Jiang Yan spoke, he reached out and wiped away the characters carved on the stone wall .
