I Can Enhance My Talents Using Unlimited Skill Points - Chapter 329
The sky had just turned bright.
On both sides of the river, the darkness gradually faded, revealing a large group of people camping there. From the sky, they looked like a swarm of ants in an ant nest.
“Mom, I want to go to the toilet.”
A fat teen took a wet towel from a middle-aged woman and washed his face.
“You already went there once in the middle of the night. Why are you still going now? Didn’t I tell you to drink less water?” the middle-aged woman asked.
“Look at the clouds in the sky. They’re so dense.” The fat teen pointed at the sky and explained, “It was hot and stuffy last night. My throat felt uncomfortable if I didn’t drink water.”
At this moment, a middle-aged man walked over after washing up.
The middle-aged man was wearing a training robe. Under the loose robe, his muscles were like those of a mouse, and his entire body was filled with an explosive power.
When the chubby young man saw the middle-aged man, his voice quickly became softer, afraid that he would be beaten up on the spot.
When the family who ran a small martial arts school heard that the crystal meditation technique was going to be publicly displayed, they hurriedly rushed to Jiangnan City. However, without a certain level of status, they could not book a hotel room.
It was all for the sake of this chance, which could almost be considered an opportunity that had fallen from the sky.
Combining the two possible chances to watch the demonstration in the morning and afternoon, the middle-aged man and woman planned their schedule in advance.
After all, if they missed this opportunity and later sought guidance from those who had mastered the crystal meditation technique, firstly, they would be far behind others in the queue, and secondly, they would no longer be able to learn it for free.
Moreover, there was no way to guarantee that the other party had really mastered the crystal meditation technique. In this day and age, there were countless scammers. It was very likely that their anxious feelings would be used against them and they would have spent their money for nothing.
The middle-aged man glared at the fat teen who was feeling uncomfortable and instructed, “Go and come back quickly. Be careful.”
After receiving permission, the fat teen quickly ran off.
The middle-aged man shook his head.
It was 8 am.
In the park by the river, a few raised platforms were suddenly opened up by the soldiers.
A group of older people had lined up beforehand to go up on the raised platforms. They sat down at the designated seats and one could tell at a glance that these people had the air of scholars.
The people on both sides of the river immediately became restless. It was obvious what kind of signal the experts and professors had sent. It was almost certain that the demonstration would happen this morning.
“Susu, the crystal meditation technique is about to be released to the entire society. Can’t you reveal something? Just tell me about the progress,”
a woman in her twenties continued to pester her after sitting down.
The woman’s name was Zhao Lei, and she was Wu Susu’s university classmate.
Both of them were talented young girls working in the academic field. They had graduated from the top academy in the Daxia Kingdom and were currently working at a research institute in the capital.
Wu Susu only nodded weakly and did not say anything else.
Zhao Lei held Wu Susu’s hand and asked, “Today is the day the crystal meditation technique is made public. Why are you always distracted? What exactly happened?”
Wu Susu explained, “I just didn’t rest well these past few days. I’m too tired.”
Zhao Lei could tell that the other party had something on her mind, but she did not want it to be revealed to anyone else. She said helplessly, “Alright then! You can lean on my shoulder and rest for a while. I’ll wake you up when it starts.”
“Yes, thank you.”
Wu Susu did not refuse. She leaned against Zhao Lei’s shoulder and quickly closed her eyes.
Her vision turned black, and she felt like the world was spinning, but also like she was weightless.
In the next moment, a human-shaped spirit opened its eyes.
After entering the spiritual world for the second time, Wu Susu looked up at the dark yellow ball floating in midair.
She did not know what the dark yellow ball was for the time being. She only knew that it was very comfortable to stay below it, and it felt like her body was soaking in a hot spring.
Next, Wu Susu could not help but size up her body again.
This spiritual body was formed from her consciousness. Other than the fact that it was not made of flesh and blood, it was no different from a real person. The lines of the figure were perfect.
This situation was completely different from what was recorded in the martial arts information.
Under normal circumstances, when one sensed the spiritual world for the first time, they should only see a ball of disorderly spiritual power, and they could only see and do nothing.
The first time she entered, she could control the human-shaped spiritual body at will and move around in her spiritual world.
Wu Susu suddenly thought of something, and the faces of the people in the outside world turned red.
She quickly shook off the distracting thoughts and controlled the threads of spiritual power to appear. She tried to cultivate the crystal meditation technique according to the sequence by which Chen Yiming had constructed the crystal.
However, even though she could control her spiritual power freely, Wu Susu’s martial arts experience was almost nil. What she had learned during the initial stages of her cultivation was completely useless to her now.
In the end, the crystal that was constructed could only take on the form in structure but not in spirit, so the power of purification naturally did not appear.
It was 10 am.
Half an hour ago, the clouds that had been brewing all night had finally let loose and rain had started to pour, accompanied by the sound of thunder.
The heavy rain continued for half an hour, but there were still no signs of it stopping. Many low-lying spots by the river had already been flooded, and the people waiting had no choice but to let the water reach their calves.
In the rain, complaints could be heard continuously. However, there were people all around them, so they could not change positions unless they took the initiative to leave the riverside and find a place to hide from the rain.
However, they were just complaining and would not do anything about it.
They had been waiting since the day before, and it was about to begin. How could they leave so easily?
Chen Yiming arrived in the vicinity of Jiangnan City.
Looking down from the sky, the river that ran through the entire city was filled with people on both sides. In the middle of the crowd, the people were almost standing right next to each other. There were probably tens of millions of people altogether.
Of course, most of them were ordinary people. They were just here to join in the fun.
Only a few people had truly reached the threshold to learn the crystal meditation technique.
Before he appeared, Chen Yiming decided to use his spiritual power to distort the air. Others could only see a blurry figure.
The reason was to make everyone focus on the crystal meditation technique and not on him.
Lightning flashed and thunder rumbled in the sky, and the thick rain blurred their vision.
Suddenly, countless people felt that they could not breathe properly. The beating of their hearts was more strenuous than usual, and they felt a huge pressure as if the sky was about to collapse.
“What exactly is happening here?”
This thought appeared in their minds.
The clouds in the sky were stirred up by an invisible force and quickly turned into a huge tornado.
Immediately after, the storm was gathered by an invisible force and sent into the tornado.
Finally, the sky cleared up and their vision became clear.
Countless people watched as all the rainwater flowed back into the river at the bottom of the huge tornado. They were stunned by the changes in the weather.
“Is this still the power of a human?”
“Oh my god, even the legendary immortals are only at this level!”
The people on both sides of the river immediately started to discuss that situation.
Most people only knew that the martial masters were guarding the Daxia Kingdom in a place that ordinary people could not see. Very few people had seen the destructive power of an attack at the level of a natural phenomenon with their own eyes.
It was no wonder why the martial masters were equated with nuclear bombs. Their power was simply terrifying and beyond the understanding of ordinary people.
Of course, the level of Chen Yiming’s attack this time was something that other martial masters couldn’t achieve in terms of both power and range.
The huge tornado gradually dissipated into the air.
Amidst the cries of countless people, the air in the middle of the river suddenly distorted. An ordinary-looking figure appeared there, as if he had walked out of another space.
Chen Yiming scanned the area with his spiritual power and realized that most of the people he knew were here. There were also many people he didn’t know who had powerful auras.
The four people from the capital, the four people from the no man’s land in the south, Wang Ronghui, the higher-ups of the provincial government, the court heads of the Myriad Phenomena Sect, the representatives of the Chen corporation, and the sect masters of many large provincial sects…
When his spiritual power swept across the area where Wu Susu was, that strange gaze made him feel extremely guilty. It seemed that his spying that day had most likely been exposed.
He thought to himself that he had to keep a distance from the provincial biological research institute in the future. As long as they did not meet head-on, nothing awkward would happen.
Chen Yiming said seriously, “As everyone knows, the source of internal force cultivation techniques can be traced back to the creatures from the otherworld. In essence, we have to comprehend similar cultivation techniques that humans can cultivate from their innate abilities.
The crystal meditation technique is the same. I came up with it from observing the spiritual talent of a human.”
His voice was like a huge bell ringing, spreading out in a mighty manner. Even the people more than 10 kilometers away felt their eardrums hurt from the impact.
Chen Yiming continued, “Let’s cut to the chase. I’ll try my best to demonstrate the construction of the crystal slowly so that everyone can see it clearly.
After that, the spiritual crystal can last for two to three days. Don’t be anxious if you don’t remember it all the first time. You have plenty of time to study it.”
As soon as he finished speaking,
countless people spontaneously applauded. The applause went from sparse to thunderous, echoing throughout Jiangnan City.
The elders and disciples of the Sword Clan on the balcony of the River View Hotel applauded as well.
When they saw the power that could change the weather earlier, no matter how unhappy they were, they did not dare to let it show. On top of that, there were many martial arts experts around them as well.
If word got out that they had said something wrong, they would bring down the Sword Clan.
Not long after, the figure in the sky started to move.
The figure extended a hand and waved his finger in the air.
At the same time, lines of spiritual power the size of fists began to extend in the air, moving from one node to another.
In order to let as many people as possible see it clearly, Chen Yiming deliberately enlarged the spiritual power crystal many times. The extent of magnification was equivalent to the original silk-like lines of spiritual power increasing to the size of a fist.
Fortunately, he had the Undying Body talent, which allowed him to quickly recover the spiritual power he had consumed. If it was any other martial master, they would not have the confidence to withstand such a high rate of spiritual power consumption.
A huge crystal gradually appeared in midair.
Such a scene left countless people dumbfounded. Just like how the weather had changed not long ago, it had changed their understanding time and time again, and their hearts had suffered another blow.
What a surprise!
What kind of spiritual power was needed to create the scene in front of them?
This was especially true for martial arts experts from the various regions. In the past, they could only understand the difference between them and Chen Yiming from his deeds. The difference between them already felt unimaginably huge.
However, compared to the current situation, their spiritual power was like the light of a firefly competing with the bright moon. They felt extremely small.
Time passed slowly.
After more than an hour, the huge spiritual crystal was formed.
The air distorted again, and the figure seemed to be walking towards another space before disappearing into the river.
Invisible ripples spread through the river below. The originally turbid river water became clear in the blink of an eye, and the impurities stuck together and sank to the bottom of the river.
Finally, a man-made phenomenon occurred. With the huge spiritual crystal as the boundary, the water upstream was turbid, and the water downstream was comparable to pure water.
On both sides of the river, countless people were discussing it as they watched the huge spiritual crystal and the purification power that changed the river.
“This is too magical. It’s simply a miracle.”
“He left just like that? There’s no explanation?”
“Sigh! It’s as good as not seeing it.”
“What did you expect? For him to teach you step by step?”
“This thing is similar to the concept diagram. If you know it, you know it. If you don’t, you don’t know it. You have to rely on yourself to comprehend it.”
Across the sea, in the office of the Sam Nation’s prime minister.
The president was unreliable. After receiving his call, he cursed under his breath and angrily pushed all the items on the desk to the ground.
The content of the call was that the Daxia Kingdom had arranged for a large number of martial arts experts to follow countless troops to sweep through Jiangnan City and the surrounding wilderness, not letting any suspicious people through.
The informants who had an important role in the development of the Sam Nation and the undercover martial arts experts who had been installed into their positions were basically useless.
The current predicament they were facing was that only their informants at the ordinary level had not been exposed. However, they could only look at the huge spiritual crystal and could not directly learn the crystal meditation technique.
The only thing they could do was to hold a camera and record the scene from afar. It was too difficult to use this to learn the crystal meditation technique.
They needed a genius among geniuses in martial arts comprehension, and on top of that, they would have to hope that a miracle would happen.
In reality, it was better to secretly send someone to contact the martial arts experts of the Daxia Kingdom who had learned the crystal meditation technique.
They would start from this point and try to learn it secretly at a price.
The only drawback was the time. It might take a month, a few months, half a year, or even a year to succeed.
In the government office in South Korea, the parliament was holding a meeting, and the discussion was very intense.
“There’s a huge problem with the Sam Nation. The deal we agreed to last time is completely unfulfilled. They’re still looking for reasons to delay it on their side. They can’t deliver the miracle blood at all.”
“Chen Yiming’s ancestors were in South Korea before. The blood of South Korea flows in his veins. We have to actively welcome him back.”
“Previously, South Korea’s hand was forced by the Sam Nation. We’ll immediately send someone to negotiate with the Daxia Kingdom and renew our friendship. We’ll get them to send someone over to guide us in learning the crystal meditation technique.”
The high-ranking government officials, representatives of the corporations, and military generals expressed their opinions enthusiastically.
Everyone subconsciously ignored the fact that South Korea had sent out diplomatic personnel some time ago, but was rejected by the Daxia Kingdom.
