Vol 14: Chapter 2-3.

*Correction from air blade to light blade.

After the meal, Zheng found the baby dragon to draw its blood. It was rather strange that the baby dragon would bite anyone other than Zheng and Lori when they want to touch it, although those tiny teeth were harmless. Its attitude toward Zheng was like that of a child attached to its parent. It would like his fingers and wag its tail.

The baby dragon looked pitiful but Zheng hardened his heart and drew a vial of blood which made it cried. That childlike expression grabbed the women’s sympathy. They surrounded it and consoled it.

They men didn’t have such compassion. They gathered around the vial and studied the blood. It should have the same effects despite coming off a baby dragon. Since they were in God’s dimension, any problem could be solved by a full body repair. So with a short discussion, they brought the three people who hadn’t bathed in dragon blood to the platform.

Zero was the first to get the injection. He held out his arm without a word. Zheng then injected a small vial into his arm. A few seconds later, Zero nodded. “Yes, it’s effective. Four stats jumped by 100 points each. Should I begin the full body repair now?”

The others said yes. Zero walked under God and chose the repair. Normally, the beam only last a moment on someone who looked as intact as him. But the beam was bright and lifted him up.

“Phew. The full body repair is effective. So there shouldn’t be any problem. Next up is Lan.” Seeing that Zero was fine, Zheng let out a sigh of relief and turned to Lan with a smile.

She closed her eyes and held out her shaking arm. “Be gentle. I am scared of needles.”

She was so cute but Zheng’s whole body tensed up. They weren’t the only two people on this platform. A group of men were staring at the two and one fiercer gaze from behind. Lori was there with the baby dragon in her arms the whole time. Zheng didn’t dare to make any mistake. He quickly injected the blood and pulled the syringe back. He was like a gentleman that wouldn’t even touch a woman’s hand.

Lan opened her eyes and gave him a mysterious look. Then she walked under God then chose the full body repair.

Seeing Zero and Lan got injected with dragon blood, Gando also held out his arm in excitement with a look screaming, stab me! Then Zheng extinguished his excitement.

“You are revived as a newbie without any points. You won’t have the points for a repair. If you want to die, its faster to just cut your throat. But a full body repair doesn’t cost much. We will have Lan pay for your repair after she’s done.”

Just like that, Gando also received the dragon blood and repair. Everyone came to Zheng’s basement. On the way there, Zheng reiterated all the information about the team including each member’s strength, Lan’s abilities, the members that would be revived, and their next movie.

He brought out the bear robot from the dimensional bag and said. “Gando, you are our weakest member right now. However, you have the talents on piloting machines. That was the reason we revived you in advance. Don’t waste this rank C reward. First of all, you need to be practiced with doing regular movements like running, jumping, rolling. You have to be practiced with them within three days. Then you will learn to use its weapons and the modified robot.”

Gando looked as though he was going to cry. He grabbed Zheng’s leg and said. “Leader, bro, please spare me. If I enter into battle with a robot like this, I would down the other team by making them laugh.”

Zheng sighed and shook his head. He took out the Gatling cannon and pointed at Gando’s head then said in a calm voice. “You can of course choose not to pilot it. Don’t worry, I won’t say any complains.” Who would need any words when there was such a big cannon pointing at the head?

Gando accepted his fate without any hesitation and ran toward the back of the robot. It opened up then he entered the cockpit. The start up was quick this time. Within just ten seconds, the robot was speaking in fumoffu.

Zheng thought for a bit then grabbed an electric shock stick from a cabinet nearby. He threw it over to Kampa and said. “Let him run five laps. Don’t worry about him. He has double a normal person’s physical stats and running with a robot. There won’t be any problems.”

Kampa nodded. As someone that came from the army, he had experience training new recruits. He carried the stick and chased after the robot. As soon as it slowed down, he would hit it with the stick. The pilot wouldn’t feel the pain from the hit but the electrical shock that came afterward made the robot scream and run faster.

Everyone shook their heads speechless then they all turned to Zheng. He wasn’t paying much attention to the robot as he brought out Tiger’s Soul. “Ok, don’t stare at the anime bear. Let’s test the power of Tiger’s Soul. It’s a tier B magical weapon so it shouldn’t be any worse than the EMP rifle. Hoho. After testing this weapon, I will teach the Chaotic Unity Qi to WangXia.”

Everyone’s attention focused on him. Their imaginations on this blade were wild since it was extremely cool looking blade and cost a rank B reward. This was also the team’s first magical weapon.

Leaving aside the bear running around the field, everyone came to the weapon testing site. Several alloy walls of different thickness stood there. The thickest one being ten meters and the thinnest was half a meter. Although these walls were not up to the level of high tech armored plates but they were enough for testing purposes.

Zheng stood in front of the five-meter-thick wall. His mind was in a tranquility as he recalled the difficulty he was in when he first entered this realm. Every step that followed was a hardship of its own accompanied by death on the side. Then his comrades dying one by one, the shock when Jie handed the position to him, and the rage and despair induced by team Devil.

He quickly noticed his emotional upheaval. That was probably caused by the influence of Tiger’s Soul which fitted the description of the weapon. He circulated his qi through his body and brought himself out of this downcast. Then the qi moved through his arms into Tiger’s Soul. A red light extended out from the blade and as more qi entered, the light was turning into a dark red and its sharpness seemingly increased. This light also grew from half a meter to one meter from the tip of Tiger’s Soul. Zheng stopped when he spent 70% of the qi.

He was a bit disappointed. The blade was only 1.6 meters. It was only over two meters with the light blade and so was the reach. In comparison, this range was less than the DD tier light saber without consideration of its power. Though that one was a high tech weapon instead of magical.

“Aye. This is already 70% of my qi.” Zheng sighed and swung the blade against the wall.

He wasn’t giving it much expectation but the instant he swung the blade, a huge force came from the blade to his arm. He activated his qi to hold onto the handle subconsciously. Then a strong wind swept through that gave him the feeling of a sword. He blinked and sweat covered his back. Just as he blinked, the light blade suddenly amplified. Yet, the wall was seemingly intact from the slash. There was no trace of any kind.

Zheng and the others were rather confused. A thought came to his mind and he touched the wall. It slid off in two and hit the ground with a loud impact. He could feel the ground trembled. The cut was smooth as a mirror. No one would believe such a smooth cut came from a sword.

As Zheng was shocked, an eight-meter-thick wall in the distance also had the top slid off with the same smooth cut.

  1. Kampa nodded. As someone that came from the army, he had experience training new recruits. He carried the stick and chased after the robot.

    That reminds me of my highschool gym teacher. That guy was bothered by my slow pacing during 2km runs to the point he just started chasing after me while yelling out words of encouragement, like “I’ll eat you alive” and so on. The two of us practically became a running joke for the class, the entire scene was hilarious even at the time.
