Translator: Nyoi-Bo Studio Editor: Nyoi-Bo Studio
When Lu Yu returned to the Han Residence, he did not return the Seventh Heaven of Ice and Fire’s jade plate to the Han Residence because he needed the legacy jade plate to find the later part of the cultivation technique.
In the beginning, he had thought of purchasing the later part of the cultivation technique through the system store.
He had indeed found the later part cultivation technique of the Seventh Heaven of Ice and Fire in the system store, but it showed that the stock was zero. He had also received a system notification that he could obtain the corresponding reward points by uploading the Seventh Heaven of Ice and Fire cultivation technique.
Moreover, Lu Yu found out that there were some items in the system store were unavailable as well.
They all had one characteristic, which they were marked as “unique” by the system.
Lu Yu found Butler Zhang and told him that he wanted to leave Windmill Town and head to Bei Feng City.
Butler Zhang was not surprised by Lu Yu’s request. When Lu Yu became a disciple with a different surname, he knew that this day would come sooner or later, but he did not expect it to come so soon.
He brought Lu Yu to find Han Yaozu. When they arrived, Han Yaozu was reprimanding Han Yu in the study room.
Seeing the two of them arrive, Han Yaozu let Han Yu leave the study and return to his small courtyard to reflect herself.
Han Yaozu knew that Lu Yu wanted to head to Bei Feng City and to study in Bei Feng Academy, so he said, “If you want to head to Bei Feng Academy for further studies, I have no objections. The Han Residence will also bear the tuition fees for your studies.”
“I only hope that you can remember that the Han Residence is your home, and that you are a member of the Han Residence. If the Han Residence is in trouble in the future, I hope that you can lend a hand.”
“Of course. I will never forget the gratitude of the Han Residence.” After saying that, Lu Yu thought of the legacy jade disk in his backpack and felt a little guilty.
Han Yaozu smiled, then sighed and said, “Actually, when you became a disciple of the Han family, I originally planned to teach you the Seventh Heaven of Ice and Fire cultivation technique.”
“But now that the cultivation technique has been snatched away by Yang Xiu, I can’t take out the other cultivation techniques of the Han Residence. But don’t worry about the cultivation technique. I will write a letter to Feng ‘er and ask him to help you choose a suitable cultivation technique.”
“Actually, it’s a good thing that you haven’t inherited the Seventh Heaven of Ice and Fire. After all, the cultivation requirements to cultivate Seventh Heaven of Ice and Fire are too harsh, and it wouldn’t be good to switch to other cultivation techniques in the future.”
The Seventh Heaven of Ice and Fire was once the Han family’s inherited cultivation technique. Along with the decline of the Han family, a portion of the cultivation technique of the Seventh Heaven of Ice and Fire was lost. Han family also lost the dual polarity land that was suitable for cultivating the Seventh Heaven of Ice and Fire.
It had been a long time since anyone had cultivated this inherited cultivation technique. On one hand, cultivating the Seventh Heaven of Ice and Fire required extremely high comprehension and harsh conditions. On the other hand, the Seventh Heaven of Ice and Fire was a dual-attribute cultivation technique, and it was a cultivation technique of the ice and fire attribute. After cultivating this cultivation technique, it was very difficult to find and switch to other cultivation techniques of the same attribute.
Unless one could find a later part of the Seventh Heaven of Ice and Fire cultivation technique, the possibility of finding other cultivation techniques of both ice and fire attribute was very slim. Switching to a single fire or single ice attribute cultivation technique would damage one’s cultivation and cause one’s realm to drop.
In the early years, the Han family was not as declining as it was now. When Han Yaozu’s grandfather was still alive, the Han family had once searched for the lost cultivation technique of Seventh Heaven of Ice and Fire. Unfortunately, they were unable to find it even after expending a huge amount of manpower and resources.
By the time of Han Yaozu’s generation, no one in the Han family had chosen to cultivate the Seventh Heaven of Ice and Fire. Without the later part of the cultivation technique, even if the Seventh Heaven of Ice and Fire was a ninth grade spirit class cultivation technique, continuing to cultivate it would only hinder one’s path of cultivation.
Moreover, the Han family had not been able to meet the requirements to cultivate the Seventh Heaven of Ice and Fire.
The reason why Han Yaozu said that he wanted to pass on the Seventh Heaven of Ice and Fire to Lu Yu was partly because Han Yaozu wanted to use the name of the Seventh Heaven of Ice and Fire as a ninth grade spirit grade cultivation technique to buy Lu Yu’s hearts. Besides, it was also to tell Lu Yu about the Han family’s past glory, to attract him to help the Han family revival.
On the other hand, although the Seventh Heaven of Ice and Fire was once the Han family’s inherited cultivation technique, no one could cultivate it now. By letting Lu Yu cultivating the Seventh Heaven of Ice and Fire, he could also see just how strong Lu Yu’s talent was.
If Lu Yu could comprehend the Seventh Heaven of Ice and Fire, Han Yaozu would support him without hesitation. In the records of the Han clan, every clan member who could cultivate the Seventh Heaven of Ice and Fire was a genius.
If Lu Yu was indeed a genius, the Han clan would have a chance to revive its glory, even if he was only a disciple with a different surname.
Han Yaozu believed that disciples with a different surname would remember the good of the Han clan when they became stronger. Han Yaozu believed in benefits. He used the glory and wealth of the Han clan to attract them, so that they would willing to help Han clan to revive.
Especially for those who cultivated the Seventh Heaven of Ice and Fire. If they wanted to break through, they had to go to the place where the two extremes of ice and fire met. Only the Han clan head knew where the place was.
For both debt and benefits, one would choose to help the Han clan revival.
Han Yaozu was helpless. If it wasn’t for the fact that the Han clan had not produced a genius-level clansman in the past hundred years, why would they place their hopes on outsiders?
After Han Yaozu agreed to Lu Yu’s request, he asked Lu Yu to wait in the Han Residence for another two days. He first wrote a letter to Han Feng who was in Bei Feng Academy, and then spent some money to make some connections and get a place for Lu Yu in Bei Feng Academy.
It wasn’t difficult to enter Bei Feng Academy. Even an ordinary person would be able to enter Bei Feng Academy through the annual academy recruitment.
The difficult part was staying in Bei Feng Academy for a long time. Bei Feng Academy adopted the force ranking elimination system, and every month, the students ranked at the bottom would be eliminated several times.
People spent money to enter Bei Feng Academy, but many of them would still be kicked out after a few months.
It was not yet time for the annual academy recruitment. If Lu Yu wanted to enter the academy now, Han Yaozu would have to spend even more money to buy a special quota for him.
The special quota was one of the sources of Bei Feng Academy’s income. Bei Feng Academy, which adopted the forced ranking elimination system, was not worried for those who entered through the special quota would lower their overall standard.
Without strength, they would be eliminated sooner or later. This was how Bei Feng Academy worked.
Two days later, Lu Yu received a notification from Han Yaozu. Han Yaozu had already arranged a quota for him to enter Bei Feng Academy. Han Yaozu also asked a few guards who had been to Bei Feng City to escort Lu Yu.
Lu Yu and a few other guards rode on their horses as they walked on the road leading to Bei Feng City. Lu Yu looked at the road that stretched endlessly and asked, “How far is it to Bei Feng City?”
One of the guards replied, “Windmill town is over 200 miles away from Bei Feng City. We’ve just passed the second town and should be over 100 miles away. We should be able to reach there in the afternoon.”
They still had to ride the horse for an entire day. Lu Yu felt like throwing up.
At first, riding a horse was quite fun. He was able to rely on his strong physique and control to sit firmly on the horse’s back during his first ride.
After riding for a while, Lu Yu felt a slight pain in his buttocks. However, he did not dare to relax as he was afraid of falling off the horse’s back.
Lu Yu thought that perhaps it was his first time riding a horse and he did not grasp the correct technique.
Along the journey, they had passed the many convoys. Then, they entered a desolate mountain. The road went around the mountain.
When they were halfway around, Lu Yu saw a beggar in his front. He was about to speed up to go pass the beggar. Suddenly, the beggar turned his head and scared Lu Yu so much that he forcefully pinched the horse.
The horse was in pain. It raised its body to shake off Lu Yu. Lu Yu hurriedly pulled the reins, wanting the horse to turn around.
In the end, both Lu Yu and the horse fell to the ground.
The beggar turned around and walked towards Lu Yu. He smiled and said, “Lu Yu, I didn’t expect that we meet here.”
When they got closer, a few guards who hurriedly dismounted to check on Lu Yu’s condition. But then, they realized that this beggar was Yang Xiu.
The few of them took out their weapons one after another and shouted, “Stop! Yang Xiu, you have betrayed the Han Residence and are already wanted by the Han Residence. Now, we will capture you and bring you back for interrogation.”
“Shut up!” Yang Xiu appeared to be very impatient in the face of the loud shouts of the few of them.
What he hated the most right now Han Residence. He wasted a year in the Han Residence and still didn’t get what he wanted.
Lu Yu shouted loudly, “Run! He is in the qi cultivating realm.”
The reason why he reminded the few of them to run was to create an opportunity for himself to escape. Only by running separately would he have a better chance to escape from Yang Xiu’s hands.
After hearing Lu Yu’s words, the few of them did not hesitate at all. They turned around and ran in different directions with all their strength.
However, Yang Xiu easily caught up with the three who had escaped. With a light palm, he killed the three of them in the forest. Their deaths were extremely tragic.
Yang Xiu’s Raging Flame Palm struck their bodies, and the fire attribute spiritual energy roasted their internal organs. The fire attribute spiritual energy wreaked havoc in their bodies, and they couldn’t move at all.
Lu Yu only ran for a short distance, but he felt a strong wind approaching from behind. Without any hesitation, he used the Eight Steps Chasing Cicada to move to the dense forest on the left.
“Eh! Interesting, you still have the ability to escape.” Yang Xiu turned around and chased after Lu Yu.
Lu Yu did not dare to stop for even a moment. He continuously cast Eight Steps Chasing Cicada. After he reached the sixth level of the body refining realm, his physique had improved quite a bit. This allowed him to use Eight Steps Chasing Cicada for many times in a row.
However, even if he continuously cast the technique, the distance between him and Yang Xiu was getting closer and closer. Seeing that his qi-blood were about to be depleted, Lu Yu had no choice but to turn around and face Yang Xiu.
Just as he was about to take out the Overlord Blade and fight to the death, Yang Xiu suddenly disappeared in front of his eyes. Following that, Lu Yu felt a palm strike on his back. A burning sensation spread from the place where he was hit to his body.
His qi-blood wanted to resist the invasion of the fire spiritual energy, but it was ignited by the fire spiritual energy instead and was quickly consumed.
Yang Xiu walked to Lu Yu who was lying on the ground and squatted down. He whispered in his ear, “Don’t worry! I won’t let you die so soon.”
As he said that, he pressed his palm on Lu Yu’s back and continuously transferred the spiritual energy in his body into Lu Yu’s body. A part of the spiritual energy helped the fire spiritual energy to enter Lu Yu’s body, and the other part helped Lu Yu stay awake, so that Lu Yu wouldn’t faint from the pain.
“Hahaha!” Yang Xiu stood up and looked at Lu Yu. He said cruelly, “With my spiritual energy, you won’t die in half an hour.”
“You will feel yourself being roasted bit by bit from within your body, and then die painfully.”
After seeing Lu Yu being roasted until he started to smoke, Yang Xiu left and headed towards the direction of Bei Feng City.
Lu Yu did not have any spiritual energy in his body, so he was unable to expel the fire attribute spiritual energy of Yang Xiu. He would definitely die.
Lying on the ground, Lu Yu was just about to forcefully exit the game to avoid death when he noticed that the button of Seventh Heaven of Ice and Fire had lit up.
He gritted his teeth and pressed the button to cultivate the Seventh Heaven of Ice and Fire in AFK mode.

Lu Yu felt the qi-blood in his body starting to circulate. Every time the qi-blood circulated, it would bring a trace of fire spiritual energy through his meridians.
The fire spiritual energy burned the meridians, and the qi-blood restored the meridians immediately. The cycle repeated, and the meridians became thicker and stronger. Even if they were burned by the fire spiritual energy, they would not be easily destroyed.
The speed of the qi-blood circulation became faster and faster. The raging fire spiritual energy in Lu Yu’s body seemed to have found an outlet, and it rushed into the meridians along the channel of the qi-blood circulation.
The meridians that had stabilized were burned again. The qi-blood and fire spiritual energy were about to be blocked in the burned meridians and trigger the explosion of the body.
Then, the qi-blood began to seep into the meridians, and the fire spiritual energy was also carried by the qi-blood into the body. The body were nourished by the qi-blood and could withstand the burning of the fire spiritual energy. Gradually, some impurities were burned out from the body..
