Training Through The Game - Chapter 28

Lu Yu brought Little Tail back to the small courtyard. When Han Yu, who had been watching the small courtyard from upstairs, saw him, she became excited.
When she noticed the child who followed Lu Yu into the small courtyard, she was a little confused and wondered, “Who was that child?”
A guard who was responsible for protecting Han Yu enter the room. Han Yu pointed at Little Tail downstairs and asked, “Who is that child?”
Coincidentally, the guard who was responsible for protecting Han Yu was the one who brought Little Tail to take a bath. He replied truthfully, “That is the beggar that Mr. Lu brought back.”
“Beggar? Why is he bringing a beggar with him?” Han Yu muttered to herself.
When the guard heard this, he thought that she was asking him, so he replied, “I don’t know either, but that child is a girl.”
“A girl?” Han Yu looked confused.
After returning to the courtyard, Lu Yu went into his room and took out the Hundred Forged Greatsword from his backpack. He went into the courtyard and began to cultivate.
After a period of cultivation, Lu Yu realized that although his qi-blood had not increased, his strength had increased quite a bit. It was not as difficult to hold the Hundred Forged Greatsword as previous.
However, it was still difficult for him to swing the 300 kg greatsword freely.
After consuming one qi-blood pill and three body enhancing pills, he began to practice the Edgeless Blade Technique.
He had used up all the body enhancing pills long ago, and the body enhancing pills he had now were purchased from the system store.
Every time Lu Yu cultivated, he had to consume a pill that was worth more than 100 gold coins in order to maintain such a fast cultivation speed. This was something that an ordinary body refining realm martial art cultivator would not dare to imagine.
After all, a spirit weapon was only a little over a thousand gold coins. Lu Yu had consumed one-tenth of a spirit weapon in one cultivation session. With so much money, it was better to buy a spirit weapon to increase his own strength.
The sound of the wind created by the Hundred Forged Greatsword sounded very scary, but Little Tail was already used to it.
She wore the oil paper hat that Lu Yu bought for her and sat on the steps at the door. She quietly watched Lu Yu cultivate. From time to time, she looked at the sky, as if she missed her freedom in the past.
Little Tail actually did not miss the freedom of the past. She felt that her current life was very happy. She was very satisfied. She looked up at the sky because the old beggar had told her that after death, people would go up to the sky and become the stars in the sky.
She was looking at the star that the old beggar had become.
After cultivating the Edgeless Blade Technique, Lu Yu continued to cultivate the Fierce Tiger Fist Style.
This place was not suitable for cultivating Eight Steps Chasing Cicada. The courtyard was too small. With his current strength and the ‘highly skilled’ Eight Steps Chasing Cicada, he would hit the wall with just one step.
The Eight Step Chasing Cicada required 800 experience points to level up. If he had to spend time cultivating this technique, he might as well use the experience points directly to level up it. Every time he leveled up this technique, he would cultivate a few times and use it skillfully. He did not need to spend too much time on the Eight Step Chasing Cicada.
Looking at the increase speed of his realm experience bar, Lu Yu felt that if he put in a little more effort tonight, he would be able to level up to the fourth level of the body refining realm.
Han Yu opened the window and discovered that Lu Yu was still cultivating. She asked the guard outside curiously, “Is Lu Yu always so serious in his cultivation every day? Other than eating, why is he always cultivating?”
The guard replied, “Yes, Mr. Lu is the most hardworking person I’ve ever met. He’s cultivating almost every moment.”
Hearing this, Han Yu couldn’t help but feel ashamed in her heart. Under her father’s urging, she would find any chance to slack off. However, this Lu Yu was cultivating so diligently even when no one was forcing him.
In the AFK mode, Lu Yu was thinking about at what realm he should at to expose Yang Xiu. If he was too weak, he would be in danger. If he was too strong, it would be a waste of time.
He had to get this big gift bag from the Han Residence as soon as possible so that he could go to the Tianfeng Academy to look for Su Peng sooner.
After careful consideration, he felt that it was safer to cultivate to the qi cultivating realm because Yang Xiu might be at the qi cultivating realm. However, it would take him a very long time.
Ma Gang looked at the person who had climbed in through the window and said angrily, “Why are you come in through the window? Can’t you use the door?”
“I have important information.”
Ma Gang patted the woman who was lying in bed and said, “Get out.”
The woman hurriedly took her clothes and left the room. Her exposing body didn’t attract the attention of the two people in the room.
“Han Yu has left the Han Residence. She is now staying in the inn next to the Ji Min Hall.”
“What? Han Yu has left the Han Residence!” Ma Gang got out of bed excitedly.
“Cough, be careful. Don’t expose yourself like that. I’m leaving.” After saying that, the person jumped out of the window.
Ma Gang looked down and did not pay attention to this matter. The key was that Han Yu had come to Windmill Town.
If he could capture Han Yu and force Han Yaozu to hand over the cultivation technique, the others and him would not have to hide in that ghastly place deep in the mountains and forests.
He had forgotten about Lu Yu. The only reason he wanted to get rid of Lu Yu was because he might interfere with his actions. Now that his target had appeared, he did not care whether he was exposed or not.
He looked at the sky outside. It was still very bright. There was still a long time before night. However, Ma Gang could not hold it in anymore. He shouted to the outside, “Madam, find me another girl!”
Han Yu was bored and stayed in her room. She watched Lu Yu cultivated from morning to afternoon and then from afternoon to night. Other than eating, he cultivated all the time. She was so tired that she lost interest in observing him.
After eating, she laid on the bed early to rest.
Lu Yu had long noticed that Han Yu was staying in the opposite inn. Han Yu’s undisguised gaze could not be more obvious. However, Lu Yu could not be bothered with her.
After dinner, Lu Yu continued to cultivate the Fierce Tiger Fist Style. He was just a little bit away from leveling up. At worst, he could just stay up all night.
Otherwise, he would not be able to sleep well. After all, he was about to level up. He might even sleepwalk to cultivate.
It was late at night. The night in Windmill Town was very quiet. Occasionally, one could hear the shouts of the watchmen. The lights in the medicine shop were all extinguished. Lu Yu was cultivating the Fierce Tiger Fist Style in the darkness.
Although there were no lights, Lu Yu could clearly see the scenery in the courtyard. Cultivation enhanced one’s ability in all aspects. Even if there was no moonlight, Lu Yu could still see the night scene twenty to thirty meters away clearly.
He could see the things clearly in two to three meters around him. It was the same as seeing things in the shadows during the day.
[After hard training, your realm has broken through to the fourth level of the body refining realm. Qi-blood + 8]
Finally, he heard the system notification that he had missed for a long time.
The moment he broke through, Lu Yu felt a burst of pure qi-blood in his body. The qi-blood moistened his internal organs. Lu Yu let out a long breath of turbid air.
Not only that, the qi-blood that suddenly appeared when he broke through also surged to the surface of his body. Lu Yu could feel that his skin was becoming tougher and thicker.
The remaining qi-blood surged to his head. Lu Yu instantly felt that his vision was much clearer. Then, he saw a person appear in Han Yu’s room and wrap Han Yu in the blanket. That person lifted her up and prepared to leave through the window facing the courtyard.
Lu Yu frowned and sighed. He would rather not see this scene. He wished he was asleep, so he didn’t need to do the hassle.
Ma Gang, who was carrying Han Yu, jumped out of the inn. He did not expect that there would be someone who did not even turn on the lights at this time of night, some weirdo that still stood in the courtyard when everyone else had fallen asleep!
“F*ck, since you have seen me, then consider yourself unlucky!”
Carrying the blanket, he rushed towards Lu Yu. Only when he got close did he see clearly that the person in the courtyard was Lu Yu, whom he had originally wanted to kill.
Ma Gang immediately smiled and thought to himself, “Just nice, I’ve completed my mission to kill Lu Yu. I’m so lucky today!”
He punched Lu Yu with his bare hands. He thought that Lu Yu could not even withstand a single punch from him.
In the next second, he saw an extremely exaggerated weapon appear in Lu Yu’s hand. Before he could react, he saw that he was getting further and further away from Lu Yu.
Seeing that Ma Gang actually dared to run towards him barehanded, Lu Yu took out the Hundred Forged Greatsword without hesitation and struck out with Heaven’s Fall.
With the Hundred Forged Greatsword in hand, even if Lu Yu could not unleash the true power of Heaven’s Fall, it was definitely not something that Ma Gang, who was barehanded, could withstand.
At the moment of contact, Ma Gang’s arm was broken by the powerful force. In less than 0.1 seconds, his arm and back merged into one, turning into a pile of meat paste. He was directly sent flying by Heaven’s Fall.
[Kill a martial art cultivator at the sixth level of the body refining realm. Obtained 412 experience points]
Sixth level of the body refining realm! Lu Yu did not expect that Ma Gang was actually a martial art cultivator at the sixth level of the body refining realm. He now had a clearer understanding of the power of the Heaven’s Fall.
Under normal circumstances, if he wanted to deal with a martial art cultivator at the sixth level of the body refining realm, he had to go all out in order to have a chance of winning.
Even after his Fierce Tiger Fist Style had reached the ‘perfected’ level, he felt that he had a very small chance of winning against a martial cultivator at the sixth level of the body refining realm.
However, a martial cultivator at the sixth level of the body refining realm would not be able to withstand the Heaven’s Fall if the cultivator was unprepared. Lu Yu suspected that even a martial cultivator at the seventh level of the body refining realm might not be able to withstand it.
Moreover, when dealing with a martial skill like the Edgeless Blade Technique, the best choice was to dodge, not to take it head-on.
If Ma Gang had left some strength behind when he attacked Lu Yu, he might have chance to dodge the Heaven’s Fall.
Lu Yu looked at the blanket that had fallen to the ground and was somewhat impressed. Han Yu had not woken up yet despite of all the noises. He then found out that Han Yu had already fainted from the drug before she was rolled up.
He did not bother with her. She was wrapped up in the blanket anyway. She would not catch a cold if she slept here at night, and no one would dare to touch her tonight.
He returned to the courtyard and closed the door. After cultivating until so late, he also felt a little sleepy, so he lay on the bed and prepared to sleep.
He remembered that when his realm had risen, it seemed that his qi-blood had increased by a lot, much more than when his realm had risen in the past.
Lu Yu had once heard from Wang Qiang that there was a threshold between the sixth and seventh realm of the body refining realm, and it was a huge leap to cross it. From the looks of it, the third to fourth realm of the body refining realm was a small threshold, so it was reasonable to have such huge improvement.
He needed a total of 2,000 experience points to level up to fifth level. Now that he had 1,047 experience points, “Should I upgrade the Edgeless Blade Technique?”
What made him hesitate was that he did not know if upgrading the Edgeless Blade Technique would increase his realm.
He could not fall asleep as he kept thinking about it. He tossed and turned on the bed. Seeing that the sky was about to brighten, Lu Yu finally made a decision to upgrade the Edgeless Blade Technique!
[After painstaking cultivation, the Edgeless Blade Art has been upgraded to the second level. Qi-blood + 10]
“And then?” Lu Yu looked at this short and weak system notification and felt a little frustrated.
Upgrading the Edgeless Blade Art to the second level did indeed add a lot of qi-blood. It was equivalent to the full level of the Fierce Tiger Fist Style, but there was no increase in his realm.

The first half of the Edgeless Blade Art only had three levels. The first level could only be cultivated to the fourth level of the body refining realm, so there was no way to upgrade the realm.
If one cultivated to the fourth level of the body refining realm and was still unable to comprehend the second level of the Edgeless Blade Art, then they would be unable to continue cultivating to increase their qi-blood. This kind of situation was known as poor comprehension of the cultivator.
On the other hand, if one’s cultivation level was low but was able to comprehend a cultivation technique that far surpassed their current level, then they would be called as geniuses with high comprehension.
But what Lu Yu could do was just cheating!
Basically, no one could raise one’s realm by comprehending a cultivation technique. Those who were capable to do so were either geniuses or cheating..
