 Season 1

Episode 13

(The fifth grade martial arts skill(1)

Austin returned to his own hovel.     

As soon as he could breathe peacefully again, the first thing he did was to sit down on his feet and start his vital energy to heal his wounds and recover his strength.     

Although he was not hurt badly during the fight against Rafat Sun tonight, but there were still minor wounds all over his body which caused irritation every time he moved.     

The ones he had sustained on his belly however, were a bit severe. Fortunately for him, he had moved back just in time or his guts would have been pulled out mercilessly.    

 He had also collided with Rafat using his vital energy face to face and this had consumed most of it. His arms were still swollen from the effort.   

To be very honest, he had managed to live today by mere luck. Rafat had been badly hurt and was afraid to go all out against him. If he hadn't held back today, the result of the fight would have been too horrible to imagine—not that there would be anything left of Austin to imagine with.     

'I was too impulsive in my fights today. I should be more careful in the future.' Austin told himself.    

 Austin kept on meditating whilst sitting on his feet on the bed. Soon he was completely indulged in the movement of his vital energy and was lost to the world.    

 The energy flow in the air seemed to be controlled now. Following the path of the Purple Yang formula, the flow was now directed towards Austin and moving into his body with every breath he took. It would have been a magnificent sight if anyone was there to witness it.   

The entire night passed in his cultivation.     

He sat still for hours and hours and the next day, he suddenly opened his eyes and woke up from the meditation. His eyes looked bright and sharp now.     

The sun had already risen high in the sky and the strong and hot sunlight was seeping inside the room through the cracks of the hovel. Despite the uncomfortable ambiance, it was very bright inside.     

Although Austin hadn't slept all night, he didn't feel tired. On the contrary, he was energetic and refreshed.     

He could tell that the vital energy inside his body had turned a lot denser than before and whatever amount of it had been used last night was totally recovered now.    

 Another fact that made him joyous was that even though he used up almost all of his vital energy last night, it didn't have any bad influence on his cultivation skills. On the contrary, the speed at which he absorbed energy from the air had been improved greatly.   

It reminded Austin of his previous cultivation experience from his last life.  

   A warrior was supposed to go outside and experience difficulties. This was one of the most effective ways to help improve his strength.     

Just as a man's mind would be more sensitive after it was used to think about something for a long time, one's energy flow also got better with increased usage and practice.     

With this advice in mind, Austin decided to go to the surrounding area of the Grand Desolation Mountain and practice with some difficult situations to cultivate his skills.     

When he had been an outer disciple, he had met his first bottleneck when he was trying to break through the ninth level of the Energy Gathering Realm.     

Later on, he had gone to the surrounding areas of the Grand Desolation Mountain for a month. After he had come back, he was finally able to break through the bottleneck and up into the ninth level of the Energy Gathering Realm.   

Thinking about the thrilling experience he had had before in the Grand Desolation Mountain, Austin felt excited and wanted to go there again.    

 There was, however, something important and something unimportant to do right now. Before going to the Grand Desolation Mountain, he had to recover his strength completely and also regain his identity of an outer disciple.    

 In Sun Sect, only the outer disciples were allowed any opportunities to go to the Grand Desolation Mountain.    

 Jumping off his bed, Austin started to move his body by practicing some common movements--he rubbed his head, waved his arms and legs, shrugged his shoulders, and bent down. He was feeling so energetic right now that it was hard to stop.     

Then he raised his left hand and stared at the ring around his middle finger, stroking it lovingly with his fingers.   

This was one of the biggest prizes he had got last night, a space ring.     

He would have been satisfied with a space ring even if it was empty.     

It was easy to put in or take out something from the ring and he could control the process by his intent.    

 Legend had it that some specially-made space rings of a significantly high level could be attached to the spiritual sign of the owner.    

 If someone else wanted to use such a space ring, or attach his own signature to it, the spiritual sign of its original owner needed to be eliminated. 

Otherwise, the ring would stay shut.     However, the ring Austin had gotten last night was not of such a high level. Anyone could use it.     

And even if it had been so powerful, only a person who was in the Mysterious Realm or above possessed a unique spiritual sign and was able to attach it to something.   

If he hadn't reached the Mysterious Realm, he would not be able to make his own spiritual sign.     

This meant that Austin wouldn't have been able to open a space ring if it was such a high level.    

Others could not use it if he could not get rid of the spiritual sign of its original owner even if he got the space ring.    

 The idea was similar to that of a password.     

The higher level the warrior was at, the more methods he would have to open the ring or modify the attached spiritual sign. And these methods could not be learned by warriors at a lower level.    

 Austin focused his mind on the space ring.     

The next moment, a storage space of about five cubic meters appeared in his mind.   

The inside of the ring was filled with quite a lot of things and he had to rummage around.     

Austin focused his mind even more intently on the objects inside the space ring and all of the stuff flew out with crashing sounds.     

In that clutter, the first thing he noticed was something shiny. His heart started beating faster suddenly!     

It was a big fortune! ! !    

 Austin's face turned red at the sight of it and he almost forgot to breathe at that moment.    

 His eyes were shining, brighter than the fortune itself as if a hungry man had seen a dainty fare in front of him suddenly.
