Chapter 35 Five maps


 Chapter 35 Five maps

No matter how weak the power was, one more weapon meant one more assurance, that was why Chu Yunsheng needed bullets.


Yu Xiaohai was dazed for a second, he didn't know where did Chu Yunsheng took out that food, Chu Yunsheng became even more mysterious to him. He couldn't hold back his feelings, slowly his eyes turned red, it seemed like he was on the verge of crying. if it wasn't Chu Yunsheng he would have already lost his life.

Now Chu Yunsheng even gave him food as well, he knew how important the food was, he almost died for one biscuit. However He couldn't repay the trust right now, so he said:" Chu, don't worry, I'll make sure that they give you anything you need, I'll try to become stronger as well!”
 
Chu Yunsheng laughed:” don't be so serious, we are friends, I'm helping you now.  because I hope you will be able to help me in the future. Go! don't waste time here!”


After Yu Xiaohai left, Chu Yunsheng closed the door, he needed to find out what's wrong with the ancient book and the pendant.



But when he tried to find the pendant, he noticed the pendant was gone, he couldn't find it anywhere, it only left the necklace.  he remembered clearly that he tied the pendant to the ancient book. How come he could not find it now, did the book absorb it? He thought.


He looked at the ancient book again and noticed the cover of the book had changed. originally, it was just a plain grey colour, now there seemed to be a map on it, underneath the map, a few paragraphs of strange symbols slowly emerged.

it took Chu Yunsheng quite some time to finally and only roughly figured out what it meant:

The senior practitioner who was also the author of this book was dying because of a terrible injury. he was helped by the human tribes nearby at that time. When he predicted that after five thousand years, Tian Gui(sky Track) would return and the world would fall into endless chaos. He couldn't do anything but tell the human tribes to pass on the messages from generations to generations.

The human tribes were begging for solutions from him. In order to repay what they did for him, the senior practitioner made a book about all the skills he learned throughout his entire life, he also stored his lifetime collections and treasures in one place before he died.

He then passed the ancient book to the human tribe, the ancient book followed the human tribe from places to places, generations to generations, he was hoping that when Tian Gui returned, the person who had the ancient book would be able to learn everything in the book.

In case of his treasures were discovered too early, the senior practitioner separated the map into five pieces, and gave them to five different tribes. only after five thousand years, the owner of the book would receive the information about the treasures, he hoped that the owner of the book would take out his treasures and used it to fight the danger!

Once Sky track returned, it would unleash the World Original Qi which would activate the book, only at that time would the ancient book be able to help the book owner to find the maps. The Maps were sealed in five jades, once they were near the book, the book would signal the book owner the exact location.


This senior practitioner also wrote, originally he planned to use incantation to hide the maps inside the book, and the incantation would automatically activate after five thousand years later, it would save the time and reduce the risk of losing the maps, however, at that time Sky Track had been sealed, he was also heavily injured, and he couldn't restore his Ling Qi. That was why he couldn't cast any incantations, he could barely use his remaining Ling qi to seal the map inside the jade.

He also urged whoever had the book five thousand years later to find his collections as soon as possible, otherwise, once Tian Wai Xie Mo which was the great devil from outer space arrived at the earth, with human’s Qi cultivation speed, they would not stand a chance of fighting it.

There were few more paragraphs after this, but Chu Yunsheng couldn't figure it out. however, just this bit of information was already scary enough!

Tian Wai Xie Mo? What is that? Chu Yunsheng knew it was not the insects because the book had descriptions about the insect, they were just beasts from different dimensions. Those symbols the senior practitioner used to describe "Tian Wai Xie Mo" were entirely different. This was something he was sure of.

Maybe some creatures even more powerful, Chu Yunsheng thought. The ancient people and the modern people always have different views towards the same thing, sometimes it could be very misleading. Dark energy and  Yuan Qi was one of example.

Chu Yunsheng thought about that he could barely fight with a small number of red-shelled insects. but if the creature was so powerful that even the powerful senior practitioner also considered it as the great devil, how strong could it be?

One hand he rejoiced in secret at such a stroke of luck that he had the book, but on the other hands, he was scared of an unknown devil.

Who was this senior practitioner?

What was Ling Qi, was it not Yuan Qi?

And if he was so powerful, what could injure him?

Was it something even more terrifying?

Where could he find the rest of four maps?

What should he do now?

One question after another question, chu yun sheng could not stop thinking, but he also could not get an answer.

Maybe he was secretly satisfied with what he could do before in the apocalypse, but now it completely destroyed his confidence! He just found out how small and weak he still was!


Luckily he still had some time left, although it was not a lot, it didn’t mean that he did not have hope at all, otherwise the senior would not leave everything to him!

But in such big world, where could he find rest of four maps?

Chu Yunsheng still did not have any clue, so he stopped thinking about it, his priority right now was to become stronger, otherwise, if the maps were held by someone who was stronger than him, he would not be able to get it at all.

When he was about to store the book,  surprisingly the ancient book once again glowed in the dark.

Perhaps it just fully absorbed the first map, Chu Yunsheng thought.

Suddenly he noticed the ancient book was absorbing a tremendous amount of World Original Qi around him like the last time, it stirred up all the World Original qi in the three-dimensional space, he immediately sat down and started to circulate the cultivation cycles while holding the ancient book in this chest.

It was only around 30 second, but Chu Yunsheng was shocked to find out he had already restored 6 units of Yuan Qi. It was equivalent to the amount he had to non-stop circulate cultivation cycles for 73 hours!

All he could think of right now was how powerful the senior practitioner must have been!


Unfortunately, he could only come across such opportunity serendipitously, he could not control when the ancient book absorbed the World Original Qi, it was just pure luck.

Chu Yunsheng could not hold his excitement, he was worried earlier after he made a frost talisman for Yu Xiaohai, he only had one unit of Yuan Qi left before. but now, the problem was solved, although it was an accident, he was still happy about it.

Plus what he had before, now he had up to 7 units of Yuan Qi. Chu Yunsheng needed to plan his action more carefully this time. It was almost time for the retreat, if he did not have a few absorption talisman as the backup he did not feel safe at all.

He needed to keep 6 units of Yuan Qi to make a level two absorption talisman, So he could only use one unit of Yuan Qi to defend himself, but he also had four insect’s bodies, one absorption talisman was able to convert and stored 6 red shelled insect’s fire element, So he needed to have two more insect’s bodies to make a full flame patterned absorption talisman.

Because of the dangerous situations he had encountered in the past, he had to use many uncompleted absorption talismans, but now, he did not want to waste it anymore. With Yu Xiaohai’s help, he would be able to kill one, and Yu Xiaohai would be able to help him to freeze one. But they needed to hurry up collecting two insect bodies and preparing absorption talisman as soon as possible.


After Chu Yunsheng decided what he needed to do, he quickly packed up everything and went upstairs to look for Yu Xiaohai, the night was still long, and anything could happen, so he should not waste the time here.

Chu Yunsheng had not yet reached the roof, but he could still hear the voice coming from the upstairs,  “Young man, 10 bullets for one cookie is our bottom line! ” it was Gu Liming, the captain who Chu Yunsheng did not like the most.
