No Way People Find Cultivation Difficult, Right? - Chapter 107
Somewhere in the Qingzhou region.
There was no one in the mountains.
Chen Yuan felt extremely upset because he had always liked getting things for free. He would take advantage whenever he could and just slack off. In the end, he was lulled into the Fiendcelestial Cult.
He thought that he could cultivate immortality for free, but to his surprise, his aptitude was too poor and he could only be in the bottom few.
Not to mention that he was in the doldrums. Now that he finally got a major task, he wanted to try his luck and gain some credit while slacking off.
However, he had somehow fallen into Ye Ping’s hands.
Chen Yuan was extremely miserable. ‘I’m just a copycat who follows the crowd, and yet I died at Ye Ping’s hands for no reason.’
Not only did he die, he even got chased around by Ye Ping. Be it when he was dead or alive, he was put through extreme misery.
After hearing Ye Ping’s words, Chen Yuan was even more upset.
He had no idea what Ye Ping meant.
However, he had to succumb now that Ye Ping had greater control.
With a look of dismay, Chen Yuan wept and said, “Exalted Immortal, only Dao experts can have the Golden Light of Expiation. We are heretical cultivators who will die as soon as we come into contact with the Golden Light of Expiation. Its power is hundreds of times more terrifying than the Four Thunder sword momentum.”
Chen Yuan dared not lie at all.
“Even more terrifying than the Four Thunder sword momentum?”
“Tell me in detail.”
Ye Ping was stunned. He knew that his Golden Light of Expiation was powerful and could expiate resentful spirits, but he didn’t expect it to be so incredible.
Chen Yuan froze in shock after hearing it.
He didn’t know if Ye Ping was genuinely a fool or just pretending to be one.
‘You can already condense the Golden Light of Expiation and yet you don’t know how powerful it is?’
“Exalted Immortal, are you serious?”
Chen Yuan asked miserably.
“Cut the crap, hurry up and tell me.”
Ye Ping really didn’t know how powerful his Golden Light of Expiation was, and in fact he didn’t even know how strong he really was.
If it wasn’t for the fact that he had instantly killed everyone with one move just now, Ye Ping would still think that his cultivation level was mediocre.
However, it was not that Ye Ping was foolish. He was just clueless.
It was just like how he felt that Su Changyu was more complicated than he seemed on the surface.
That was also the reason why Ye Ping did not have a clear idea about the division of realms. He just felt that there were powerhouses everywhere.
Hence, Ye Ping didn’t know if he was considered strong or not.
However, when he saw Ye Ping’s appearance, Chen Yuan dared not dawdle about any longer.
He hurriedly said, “Exalted Immortal, the Golden Light of Expiation is a supreme Mystical Ability for expiation that is specially used for dealing with demons. It’s a great lethal weapon for dealing with these sinister beings.”
“You’ll understand after I give you an example. You’re now a cultivator at the first level of Qi Refinement, and even heretical cultivators who have been Perfected would have to dodge and shun when they meet you. If you’re willing, you can expiate them with a single ray of Golden Light of Expiation.”
“Even if you encounter an evil cultivator of the Golden Core realm, they would at least be unable to do anything to you.”
“Exalted Immortal, do you understand now?”
Chen Yuan explained patiently.
“Even a Golden Core realm powerhouse can’t do anything to me? Doesn’t that mean that heretical cultivators below the Golden Core realm will probably die when they encounter me?”
Soon, Ye Ping was a little surprised.
“Exalted Immortal, it’s not probably but definitely.”
Chen Yuan’s eyes were full of certainty.
He inhaled sharply.
This time, Ye Ping was truly astonished.
He really didn’t expect the Golden Light of Expiation to be so powerful.
“Had I known this earlier, why did I run?”
Ye Ping muttered to himself.
After he said that, Chen Yuan was upset too.
‘Yeah if you said that you had the Golden Light of Expiation earlier, who would dare to chase after you? We don’t have a death wish.’
“How are my abilities then? You must tell me the truth. Ghosts who lie have to swallow a thousand needles.”
Ye Ping continued to ask.
All along, Ye Ping had been filled with doubt.
He often wondered if he was strong or not.
Theoretically speaking, he had entered the Immortal Sect less than three months ago, and anyone who had a brain would know that even a genius wouldn’t possibly become very strong after cultivating for just three months.
Besides, as a transmigrator who had read countless novels online, he definitely understood the logic that there would always be people who were stronger.
That was also the reason why Ye Ping often felt that his abilities were mediocre.
Now that he had caught someone who was rather informed, Ye Ping naturally had to question him. After all, the sect had never told him about those problems before.
That question made Chen Yuan feel terrible.
He was very curious as to why Ye Ping would ask such questions.
He managed to kill hundreds of Foundation Establishment Qi Refinement cultivators, and yet he still asked others if he was strong or not.
‘If you’re not strong, who is?’
‘Besides, you’re outrageously competent. You’re only at the first level of Qi Refinement, but you managed to cast the Four Thunder sword momentum. You’re even more brutal than a Foundation Establishment cultivator.’
Chen Yuan really did not want to answer this question.
However, for the sake of staying alive, he had no choice but to answer truthfully.
“Exalted Immortal, you’re outrageously competent. You’re incredible.”
Ye Ping was satisfied with Chen Yuan’s answer.
Ye Ping frowned as he felt like Chen Yuan was lying to him.
“Exalted Immortal, I’m really not fooling you. I might be a wastrel, but I’m at least at the seventh level of Qi Refinement.”
“The strike of your sword just now was deadlier than what a Foundation Establishment cultivator can cast. You can almost be considered a half-step Golden Core cultivator.”
“Exalted Immortal, there’s something I really don’t understand. You look just like a level-one Qi Refinement cultivator, but why are you so powerful?”
At this point, Chen Yuan thought about it and began to find it ridiculous.
Ye Ping managed to kill hundreds of high-level Qi Refinement cultivators and a few Foundation Establishment realm cultivators.
‘Does that make any sense at all?’
“Half-step Golden Core realm?”
Ye Ping was surprised. He knew that his real cultivation level was beyond the first level of Qi Refinement realm, but he didn’t expect to be a half-step Golden Core realm cultivator.
“Given that sword momentum just now, it’s not an exaggeration at all.”
“Exalted Immortal, pardon my bluntness. Don’t be upset, with your strength, you can totally dominate the Qingzhou Ancient City. Among the devotees you killed this time, only Lord Wei Lin is in the Golden Core realm while the rest are only in the Foundation Establishment realm. I don’t know why you tried to run.”
“Even if you were waiting for us to take the bait, you didn’t have to run hundreds of kilometers.”
“Besides, you also have the Golden Light of Expiation, and even Lord Wei Lin won’t dare to create trouble for you.”
Chen Yuan was on the brink of tears.
The more he talked about it, the more upset he felt.
Ye Ping was obviously so strong, but he concealed his abilities and even ran for such a long time. Wasn’t that tiring and senseless?
Chen Yuan sounded very upset.
At this point…
Ye Ping slipped into deep thought.
During this period of time, he had been curious about his abilities.
However, Su Changyu had never talked about it before.
The others didn’t either.
He finally got the chance to use the Sword Dao Meet to test his strength.
However, he didn’t expect to be lucky enough to have met two wastrels who were worse off than him.
If not for the massacre that he launched with a single strike of the sword just now, Ye Ping would have thought that his cultivation was ordinary.
However, after listening to Chen Yuan’s words, Ye Ping somehow had an illusion that he was very strong.
“However, if my abilities are far higher than the Fiendcelestial Cult followers like what you mentioned, why did my Senior Brother tell me to run?”
Ye Ping asked with a frown.
Chen Yuan was stunned after hearing his words.
‘How would I know why your senior brother told you to run?’
‘I’m not Mr. Know-it-all.’
Before Chen Yuan could shake his head, Ye Ping’s threatening voice immediately sounded.
“If you can’t give me a reason, I’ll assume you’re lying to me. If you lie to me, then I’ll kill you.”
Ye Ping was cowardly when facing humans.
However, he was domineering when facing ghosts.
Hearing these words, Chen Yuan really wanted to cry.
He obviously didn’t know why Ye Ping’s senior brother would tell him to run.
‘It’s over, it’s over, it’s over!’
‘I’m going to die, I’m going to die, I’m going to die!’
Just as Ye Ping condensed the Golden Light of Expiation.
All of a sudden, Chen Yuan thought of something while he was in extreme horror.
“Exalted Immortal, is your Senior Brother a Sword Immortal too?”
Chen Yuan asked.
Ye Ping nodded.
After receiving Ye Ping’s answer, Chen Yuan couldn’t help but immediately look like he had understood the situation.
He then gave him an answer.
“Exalted Immortal, I completely understand what your Senior Brother really wants to do.”
“He’s trying to get you to establish the sword intent.”
Chen Yuan said excitedly.
“Establish sword intent?”
For a moment, Ye Ping was a little surprised, not knowing what Chen Yuan meant.
“Exalted Immortal, it’s quite a coincidence actually. I was also a Sword Dao cultivator when I was alive and your attainments have obviously reached the peak.”
“If I guess correctly, you should be about to condense your sword intent, right?”
Chen Yuan asked.
Ye Ping nodded.
Chen Yuan continued to speak.
“It should be correct then.”
“Exalted Immortal, your Second Brother is just testing you. Sword cultivation is all about thorough sword intent.”
“The Sword Dao is all about having an unyielding Dao Heart and the courage to keep going forward in the face of all danger.”
“In other words, your Senior Brother might have told you to run on the surface, but he’s actually just testing you.”
Chen Yuan said excitedly.
Ye Ping was surprised.
“Yes, testing you.”
“Exalted Immortal, your Senior Brother is actually testing you to see what kind of choices you will make when you encounter danger.”
“Exalted Immortal, would a true Sword Dao cultivator choose to flee from the battlefield when he encounters danger?”
“Would a true peerless Sword Immortal choose to retreat in the face of setbacks?”
“Only the weak will choose to retreat.”
“A true powerhouse will brave through life-and-death situations.”
“Exalted Immortal, do you understand?”
Chen Yuan’s words struck a note in his heart.
Ye Ping was astonished.
‘Yes, true peerless powerhouses survive after braving through dangerous situations.’
‘Would true peerless Sword Immortals choose to retreat?’
Ye Ping suddenly thought about the fact that all the protagonists of the novels that he had read, had an indomitable spirit.
He was suddenly shocked.
He froze in place, unable to recover from the shock for a long time.
However, at the next moment, a gentle breeze suddenly blew over.
Soon, a voice suddenly sounded.
“Ah, Eldest Senior Brother, I’m enlightened.”
