Passive Cultivation of Techniques: Training to Become Buddha in a Demonic Sect - Chapter 10
Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
That was a provocation.
Xiao Yan’s expression became even more vicious.
Although he did not know what Lu Li meant, it should not be anything good.
However, he turned his head to look at the Demonic Devil. Seeing that the Demonic Devil did not say anything, he could only put on a fake smile and said, “Sure, Junior Brother Lu. Please!”
Then, he took a step back.
At the same time, he thought to himself. ‘Hmph! I’ll see what ways are you going to die later!’
At this moment, Lu Li moved.
He swayed his body on the spot and actually split into 2 figures.
They were afterimages!
In the next moment, Lu Li continued to move in the hall like a ghost. He was as fast as lightning, and Xiao Yan could not see Lu Li’s real body at all.
For a moment, a gust of whirlwind blew up in the hall.
In the wind, the 4 afterimages of Lu Li had just formed and reappeared.
Moreover, they would always be 4 afterimages!
“Ghost Shadows! 4 afterimages!”
Xiao Yan’s expression changed greatly when he saw such a strange scene. He exclaimed, “This is a phenomenon that only occurs when the Ghostly Steps Technique has been trained to the fourth level. How is this possible?”
He was greatly shocked in his heart.
It had only been a month!
How did Lu Li manage to cultivate the Ghostly Steps Technique to the fourth level?
This was a realm that he had not reached even after cultivating it for 3 months!
How was this possible?
Could it be that his aptitude was really good to such an extent?
“Good! That’s enough!”
All of a sudden, Demonic Devil’s voice sounded.
Hearing this, Lu Li suddenly stopped and returned to his original spot. He cupped his hands and bowed to Demonic Devil.
The 4 afterimages slowly disappeared too.
“Not bad. Excellent. Well done!”
Demonic Devil was satisfied as he praised him. “Lu Li, I did not misjudge you! Your talent is excellent. In just a month, you have trained the Ghostly Steps Technique to the fourth level, ‘Ghost Shadows’! You are not inferior to my eldest disciple!”
“Thank you, master, for your compliment.”
Lu Li’s expression was calm. He was neither sad nor happy.
At that time, Demonic Devil said again, “Xiao Yan, you’re not bad either. I’m quite satisfied.”
“Thank you, Master, for your compliment.”
Xiao Yan hurriedly went forward to thank Demonic Devil.
In the next moment, Demonic Devil changed the topic. “However, I’m currently at a critical juncture in my cultivation, so I don’t have extra energy to recruit disciples for the time being. How about this? I’ll test both of you again a month later and check your cultivation. Whoever is stronger will be recruited as my core disciple. Oh right, this time, I’ll train in seclusion. So, be careful. If you die during this time, I won’t be bothered to collect your corpses and avenge you.”
Hearing this, Lu Li and Xiao Yan were both stunned.
His sentence seemed to have a hidden meaning?
Demonic Devil waved his hand.
Lu Li and Xiao Yan bowed again and left the cave.
The black stone door closed.
Black vines climbed up from the ground and blocked the entire black stone door.
The restriction had been triggered.
It seemed that Demonic Devil was going to seclude himself for a month.
Lu Li frowned slightly and turned around to leave.
“Junior Brother Lu, wait.”
At this moment, Xiao Yan spoke.
Before Lu Li could turn around, Xiao Yan opened his mouth and spat out a stream of thick and cold bloody qi. It was like a sharp arrow as it pierced straight into Lu Li’s back.
It was so fast that no one could react in time!
That was the blood-devouring demonic qi!
Moreover, that stream of blood-devouring demonic qi was thicker than the previous one.
Once a person was hit by the blood-devouring demonic qi, the person’s bloody qi would probably be sucked dry in the blink of an eye!
It was obvious that Xiao Yan did not show his full power just now!
It hit on Lu Li!
The blood-devouring demonic qi hit on Lu Li’s back and passed through it.
However, it was an afterimage!
In the next moment, Lu Li’s figure slowly appeared from a hundred feet away, and his expression was cold.
He had actually expected this!
“Senior Brother Xiao, what is the meaning of this? You actually attacked me. You’re going to harm a fellow disciple? Aren’t you afraid that Master will blame you?”
Lu Li’s gaze was slightly cold as he questioned in a deep voice.
“Damn it! You actually dodged it!”
Xiao Yan’s face was filled with viciousness. He waved his hand and recalled that streak of bloody qi. He then said coldly, “Lu Li, did you not hear clearly just now? Master will be in seclusion for a month. If we die, he won’t be bothered to collect our corpses and avenge us! Therefore, even if I kill you, Master won’t know! Even if he knows, I bet that Master won’t care! At that time, I will become his core disciple!”
As he spoke, he flipped his other hand, and a snow-white spirit talisman appeared in his palm.
There were 3 distorted blood-colored characters on the talisman.
It was a ghost-controlling talisman!
“This is a low-grade magic tool, Ghost-Controlling Talisman. A level 10 qi refinement malicious spirit is sealed inside. Lu Li, you can die now!”
A sinister smile appeared on Xiao Yan’s face.
“Is that so?”
Lu Li narrowed his eyes slightly.
“That’s right! Go to hell!”
Xiao Yan laughed maniacally and poured his magic power into the spirit talisman.
However, in an instant, his expression changed drastically.
His magic power seemed to be frozen by the frost, and its circulation was extremely sluggish.
This was… the poison of the Ice Grass?
When was he poisoned by the Ice Grass?
Before Xiao Yan could react.
The ground shook.
Heat wave covered the sky and earth.
Xiao Yan looked up and found that Lu Li had already rushed in front of him. His muscles were bulging, his clothes were torn, and he was emitting a bloody qi that was as hot as an oven.
The killing intent on his face was as cold as ice.
In the next moment, a huge fist was thrown out.
Lu Li’s power was so strong that it compressed the air and made a huge explosion sound.
That punch was enough to shatter anything!
“How can there be such a powerful force?”
Xiao Yan let out a strange cry.
However, he did not retreat even when he was in a life and death situation. With a swing of his hand, he controlled the blood-devouring demonic qi, and it pounced toward Lu Li.
Xiao Yan wanted to take Lu Li down with him! He wanted to risk his life!
That was the sound of Lu Li’s fist hitting Xiao Yan’s head.
That was the sound of Xiao Yan’s blood-devouring demonic qi hitting Lu Li’s chest.
The next moment.
Xiao Yan’s head exploded on the spot.
Like a watermelon being smashed by a giant hammer. Blood splattered in all directions.
Before Xiao Yan died, what he saw was the scene of the blood-devouring demonic qi being bounced back by Lu Li’s body.
How…could it be?
His blood-devouring demonic qi could not break his body?
Lu Li was on the first level of qi refinement realm.
Before Xiao Yan could figure it out, Lu Li turned his fist into a palm and hit his body again. His palm was like an eagle swooping down to catch a rabbit as he grabbed at Xiao Yan’s heart.
The huge palm grabbed at Xiao Yan’s heart.
Then, a powerful force burst out from the palm, shattering Xiao Yan’s internal organs and turning him into bloody foam.
In the blink of an eye, Xiao Yan’s brain exploded and his heart shattered.
Xiao Yan was dead.
The headless corpse fell limply to the ground, bleeding all over the floor.
Lu Li frowned slightly and withdrew his bloody hand.
A trace of disgust appeared in his heart, but he did not feel any guilt.
If Lu Li had not been careful, he would have been the one who had fallen to the ground and died.
In the Demonic Devil’s cave, the glass bottle that he had crushed just now contained a type of poisonous grass that he had found in the Demons Cave.
It was called the Ice Grass.
If this Ice Grass was kept in a sealed space, it would rot and turn into a colorless and tasteless poisonous gas.
After inhaling the poisonous gas, the magical power in one’s body would gradually freeze, condense, and slow down in circulation.
The effect of the Ice Grass was excellent.
However, it took a long time for it to take effect.
People with slightly higher cultivation levels would be able to notice it in an instant.
However, Xiao Yan was only at the fifth level of qi refinement realm, so he could not detect it at all.
He never expected that Lu Li would actually make the first move and release the poison in Demonic Devil’s cave.
Of course, Lu Li had released the poison in advance for the sake of his safety.
If Xiao Yan did not harm him, he would not kill him.
The system notification sounded in his mind.
[Your Heart-Shattering Palm Technique is abnormally excited because it’s your first time killing a cultivator. The effect of your cultivation has increased by 300%!]
[Progress increased by 10%!]
Just as the system finished speaking.
A loud bang sounded.
The black stone door behind Lu Li slowly opened again.
Demonic Devil was still sitting on the white bone chair. His blood-red eyes revealed an undisguised admiration.
The feeling… It felt like Ximen Qing met Pan Jinlian.
