Chapter 20: The Soil That Covered In Iron Shield
Zhao Lingyu realised that the child hanging from his neck had a complicated expression. He immediately asked, “What’s wrong?”
What was wrong? My food gone! It was not easy for his injury to get improve by so much because he had been absorbing soil energy. He was also trying to grow taller, but he couldn’t absorb any soil energy… What was going on?
Ren Sheng thought about it angrily. Suddenly, his face froze.
The skill he gave Zhao Lingyu was one of the best amongst the body-cultivating techniques. After cultivating, he could have copper skin and iron bones . Even if the lightnings were strike down from the sky, he would only emit some sparks. Zhao Lingyu cultivated hard every day. Although he didn’t achieve great success, he had already cultivated very well. Now, wasn’t he using this copper skin and iron bone to contain all the soil energy in his body?
At first, he just wanted to help Zhao Lingyu become stronger, live longer, and recover his mobility. Unexpectedly, he eventually allowed his delicious food to gain a thick layer of iron sheets which could not be penetrated…
Ren Sheng feet wronged and resented that he didn’t understand this matter until now. There were even clues to this very early on!
The energy that can be absorbed from Zhao Lingyu had been reduced for a long time. Some days ago, he could only absorb soil energy from a fixed area. Were those other places not the areas Zhao Lingyu was cultivating?
He could only absorb more energy when Zhao Lingyu suppresses his power. He should have found out the problem long ago. However, since he was watching Zhao Lingyu’s battle video, he paid more and more attention to Zhao Lingyu. Sometimes, he would touch Zhao Lingyu and get distracted. He didn’t expect this…
“Are you uncomfortable anywhere?” Zhao Lingyu asked again. He gently reached out to hold Ren Sheng’s bottom, letting him sit on his arm — he also wanted to hold the person with other actions, but he couldn’t properly control his strength at the moment. So, he only dared to touch Ren Sheng with care, but dare not seize him, lest he accidentally hurt the child.
“No.” Ren Sheng said sullenly, while glancing at Zhao Lingyu.
He fed so many ginseng seeds for this person to cultivate. Now he was better, but this person had cultivated away all his soil energy. What could he do in the future?
What about stopping this man from cultivating? Although only a very small part could be absorbed now, it could still be absorbed after all. If Zhao Lingyu continued to cultivate like this…
However, if Zhao Lingyu didn’t cultivate, he wouldn’t become the magnificent marshal…
The more Ren Sheng thought about it, the more he felt aggrieved. He dug at Zhao Lingyu’s arm with his fingers.
If Ren Sheng was a demon like a tiger spirit, and his claws were very sharp and had been cultivated for a long time, it would not be difficult to make a mark on Zhao Lingyu. But he was a plant demon.
Among the many demons in the cultivation world, plant demons were the most useless. It was very difficult for them to gain spiritual awareness. They were also more stupid and weaker than ordinary demons after gaining spiritual awareness. At first, they could only resist enemies by their own characteristics. For example, the plant demons cultivated from those poisonous herbs were full of poison, and no one would dare to touch them.
But the characteristic of ginseng itself was nourishment…
He didn’t have much defense or attack power. It was only his speed that was pretty good, and he was very nourishing…
Ren Sheng spent a long time poking Zhao Lingyu’s body. He (RS) finally opened his (RS) mouth to bite him (ZL), leaving only two small teeth marks. It was far away from his goal of opening a gap in Zhao Lingyu.
Zhao Lingyu’s arm was tickled by Ren Sheng, but he was worried about injuring Ren Sheng and didn’t dare to take any action. He could only let Ren Sheng smear a lot of saliva on his arm, an expression torn between crying and laughing shown on his face.
“Your relationship is getting better and better.” Shen Qiushi said with relief when she saw the scene.
What better relationship? His teeth were sore now! This place with no spiritual power was so hateful that he can’t even use more powerful magic if he wanted to!
Ren Sheng angrily puffed up his face. He turned to see his saliva left on Zhao Lingyu’s arm, and worried about wasting it. So, he wiped it back with his hands and absorbed it again.
“I’m not hurt.” Zhao Lingyu, who was rubbed by the little hand several times, said immediately.
I just can’t bear to give you my saliva. I was not afraid of your pain! Ren Sheng would have liked to take another bite, but for his own teeth’s sake, he could only cease.
“Ren Sheng, the skill that you let me cultivate is very powerful. Now my strength and defenses are extraordinary.” Zhao Lingyu continued to say, while he touched Ren Sheng’s face gently with his empty hand. His skin was as resilient as before, but his defense increased by who knows how many times. As for strength… Look at those footprints one by one, and you could also get a general idea.
“Of course, look how powerful that technique is!” Ren Sheng raised his head, his face full of pride. Then, he got a little depressed — this skill was so powerful! How would he live in the future!
Zhao Lingyu didn’t know the reason why Ren Sheng was in a bad mood. But he knew that it was most likely to be related to his secret, “I can’t quite control my body now. Would you like to cultivate with me?”
“Hmph, it would be strange if you could control your body so quickly…” This kind of body cultivation skill was quick. Although, it was painful, but it was effective, and it would take time to adapt. Of course, even if it was a quick one, ordinary people couldn’t cultivate so fast——To have just enough powerful energy in the body, and also a personal ginseng demon supporting him… Zhao Lingyu was probably the only one from ancient times to the present.
Ren Sheng accompanied Zhao Lingyu to cultivate. At the same time, he thought hard about all kinds of magic art his master mentioned before, so as to find useful ones to teach Zhao Lingyu. In the end, he really couldn’t remember any. He also went through at the jade slips left by his master again.
Of course, during this period, while Zhao Lingyu was cultivating, he (RS) also didn’t forget to take advantage and put his hand on the area where he (ZL) was cultivating and desperately absorbed soil energy—if he still didn’t absorb it at this time, it would be too late!
Every time he thought of how he would have to go hungry in the future, he felt sad in his heart. Seeing a big piece of soil energy walking in front of him but not being able to take root in it, his mood became even worse. But Zhao Lingyu was cultivating so hard, and he (RS) was reluctant to make him (ZL) stop…
Zhao Lingyu, whose strength was still a little out of control, wielded an extremely heavy broadsword in the yard for two hours, then finally stopped. Looking at the hilt that was about to be broken by his own grip, he then walked towards Ren Sheng. As a result, before he could get closer, Ren Sheng had already jumped onto him. A pair of small hands touched him here and there, and even wiped away all his sweat.
His was sweating less and less now. So, it always made him feel that his body was a little abnormal, but Ren Sheng was even more abnormal. For example, right now, he could clearly feel that the place on his (ZL) body that was touched by his (RS) hands would become extremely dry. It was as if the sweat had been absorbed by Ren Sheng.
Not only that, he was much better these days, and Ren Sheng was particularly sticky to him. So, he also realised that Ren Sheng did not excrete at all.
Eating, drinking and pooping was something that every human had to do. There were many things he ate, but he never goes to the toilet.
Zhao Lingyu sighed and asked, “What cartoons did you watch today?”
“I watched Power Baby.” Ren Sheng, a little disappointed, took back his ‘tentacles’.
Zhao Lingyu had cultivated every part of his body, so much that even his sweat and excrement would not bring out soil energy. It was really too terrible!
However, he didn’t know why he just wanted to touch…
“You’ve seen a lot of these cartoons. Do you want to take some lessons?”
“I’m going to school?” Ren Sheng asked curiously.
“Of course not. It’s very dangerous for you to go to school now, but there are special courses on the Internet. I can be your guardian to take you there.” Zhao Lingyu said. Ren Sheng’s situation made him dare not let him out at all. So, he could only go on the virtual network to learn.
When Ren Sheng got to know more about the outside situation, then it would be time for him to talk openly with Ren Sheng….
 copper skin and iron bones literally means strong body
Awe Hidden Corner: I was wondering which part of the Zhou Lingyu’s body Ren Sheng touched. I can just think it was probably *cough* his
birdy ‘dantian’ for now. ﾍ(¬‿¬) Oh well. Happy New Year everyone
