Chapter 55: Heart Meditation’s Use

Translator: CKtalon Editor: CKtalon

Only when Gu Dian put the kitten aside did Zhou Wen see another three cats on the grass patch to the side . Two of them were kittens and one of them was an adult . Clearly, this group of four was a family . The mother cat was sunbathing in the sun with her three kittens .

By the side of the grass patch were two bowls . One of them had water in it and the other had cat food . It was obvious that they had been prepared by Gu Dian .

After putting down the kitten, the look in Gu Dian’s eyes turned extremely cold . He glared at Zhou Wen like a devil and coldly said, “You’re dead if I hear any rumors spreading . ”

His devil-like looks and bone-chilling voice would probably frighten Zhou Wen at any other time . However, the scene of Gu Dian raising the kitten high kept flashing across his eyes . Zhou Wen just couldn’t bring himself to feel any fear .

“Don’t worry . I’m not a gossipy person . ”

“That better be the case,” Gu Dian said coldly . Ignoring Zhou Wen, he bent down and picked up the two bowls . After taking another glance at the four cats who were frolicking on the grass, he turned and left .

After taking a few steps, Gu Dian stopped and said without turning his head . “Also, don’t you attempt to harm them; otherwise, you’re dead . ”

After saying that, Gu Dian took huge strides and left .

Li Xuan said that not only does Gu Dian look fierce, but that he’s extremely bad . It’s said that he’s willing to do anything awful as long as he’s paid . Now from the looks of it, he might not be as bad as the rumors say . To be so close to cats which are naturally wary of others, to the point of letting him get so close to the kittens, he’s probably not as evil as the rumors say . Zhou Wen glanced at the four cats and thought to himself .

In present times, animals like dogs and cats were no longer as cherished as in the past . After all, they were only for aesthetics . In contrast, Companion Beasts had magical powers . People were more willing to spend money on them .

In the past, all kinds of valuable pet cats and dogs had mostly turned into strays . They were no longer doted on by humans .

With the time changing, many things changed as well . In the past, figures who could fly or have tremendous strength were extolled for being capable of becoming Legendaries . Their tales were spread to this day because few humans in the past had such powers .

But in this day and age, it wasn’t difficult to have tremendous strength if one could advance to the Legendary stage . Now, almost everyone could become as legendary as those people from the past since the Legendary stage was no longer rare . As long as one cultivated hard, they would definitely advance to the Legendary stage as long as they weren’t without any aptitude .

However, to advance from the Legendary stage to the Epic stage wasn’t simple . This required talent, Primordial Energy Arts, resources, and the combination of all kinds of factors . It wasn’t achievable simply through hard work .

After all, those people who had their names put into the annals of history to be extolled in poems and songs were basically close to mythical existences .

Back when Zhou Wen cultivated Ascetic Meditation, he had planned on advancing to the Legendary stage during college . Such a speed made him a genius among humans .

However, his Ascetic Meditation had already been replaced by the Legendary stage . To advance to the Legendary stage with the Lost Immortal Sutra wasn’t a simple endeavor to begin with .

Zhou Wen had been repeatedly studying Lost Immortal Sutra recently and he discovered that it was very different from the typical Primordial Energy Art .

In typical Primordial Energy Arts like Ascetic Meditation, advancement was in fact breaking one’s shackles . Humans had the limits of their Strength, Speed, Constitution, and Primordial Energy shackled, so consuming no amount of supplements was of any use . The stats just wouldn’t continue rising .

Only after breaking those shackles would a human’s upper limits be unlocked . While being able to continue raising one’s stats, one would also obtain a Life Providence that was related to one’s aptitude . It was commonly known as Legendary Life Providence .

However, after Zhou Wen’s repeated studies of the Lost Immortal Sutra, he didn’t see any descriptions regarding the breaking of those shackles .

Therefore, Zhou Wen still hadn’t figured out how he could use the Lost Immortal Sutra to advance to the Legendary stage .

After going through quite a hassle to find the on-campus supermarket and buying the daily necessities he needed, he returned to his dorm to unpack it . Once he was done with all of that, he then began grinding .

Since it was unlikely for him to have any progress with Ant Nest any time soon, Zhou Wen chose to enter the Underground Buddha City .

He spent some time grinding the Buddha Heart Lotuses at the lotus pond, but not a single Companion Beast dropped . Instead, his Mutated Skeleton Ant was devoured by the gargantuan blood-colored Buddha Heart Lotus .

Zhou Wen then controlled the blood-colored avatar to Small Buddha Temple . Before climbing up the stone steps, Zhou Wen got the blood-colored avatar to activate his Primordial Energy Skill—Heart Meditation .

The stretch of road in front of Small Buddha Temple was extremely bizarre . Death seemed to be the only outcome no matter how he traversed it . He still hadn’t found the reason why that was the case .

Using Heart Meditation was a last-ditch effort . He felt that since Heart Meditation came from the Buddha Heart Lotus, it was possible that using it worked .

To Zhou Wen’s surprise, the blood-colored avatar, which would usually die once it arrived at a spot where it could see the Small Buddha Temple’s signboard, didn’t die this time . It could still move higher and progress forward .

Does Heart Meditation really work? Even Zhou Wen was surprised .

He made the blood-colored avatar proceed forward and indeed, nothing happened the entire way . However, Heart Meditation was a Primordial Energy Skill which expended Primordial Energy while it was in use, at a rate of two points a minute .

By climbing up the stone steps in such a way, there was still quite a distance from Small Buddha Temple before his Primordial Energy was completely drained .

The moment Heart Meditation wasn’t in effect, the blood-colored avatar collapsed to the ground and the game’s screen went black .

Since he knew that Heart Meditation worked, Zhou Wen eagerly revived the blood-colored avatar and made it come in front of the Small Buddha Temple’s stone passageway .

Zhou Wen activated Heart Meditation and made the blood-colored avatar run towards the Small Buddha Temple at full speed . However, it died once again when its Primordial Energy was drained about ten meters away from its destination .

With my present speed, the time Heart Meditation can be in effect isn’t enough for me to rush into Small Buddha Temple . Do I have to wait until I’ve advanced to the Legendary stage and have plenty of Primordial Energy before I can rush in with Heart Meditation? But I’ve no idea how long it will take before I advance to the Legendary stage…

Primordial Energy Skills like Heart Meditation that continuously expend Primordial Energy expend less Primordial Energy at higher ranks . I wonder if it’s the same with Heart Meditation? Currently, Heart Meditation is at Rank 7 . If I can grind a Rank 8 or Rank 9 Heart Meditation, perhaps I might have a chance of entering Small Buddha Temple .

Since he had nothing else to do, Zhou Wen continued grinding Buddha Heart Lotuses with a try-and-see attitude, hoping to receive something .

After repeated grinding, Zhou Wen realized a pattern . The blood-colored Buddha Heart Lotus was always submerged underwater in the beginning . Only after Zhou Wen cleaved some of the Buddha Heart Lotuses around the middle of the lotus pond would the blood-colored Buddha Heart Lotus rise above the water surface in rage .
