True Martial World - chapter-21
The Lian tribal clan’s elders’ compound late at night.
“Peng!” The door to the compound was pushed opened. A young man with
a complexion as clear as jade walked out.
“Chengyu, why did you come out?” The Patriarch stood up the moment he
saw the young man. Lian Chengyu had previously announced that he wanted
to isolate himself till the Tai Ah Divine Kingdom’s warrior selection
Yet it had been less than a month before Lian Chengyu came out of
“My cultivation met some problems…” Lian Chengyu’s expression
didn’t look good. He had planned to use two months to accumulate a
strong base before using the desolate bones essence to breakthrough to
the Purple Blood realm!
By doing so, his fundamentals will be strong, and having accumulated
sufficient amounts, when he breakthroughs into the Purple Blood realm, he
would reach the peak of the beginning stages of the Purple Blood realm.
Among the others in the beginning stages of the Purple Blood realm, he
would be able to keep his head up, and it would aid him in breaking
through to an even higher realm in the future. It would be very
Tai Ah Divine Kingdom’s warrior selection was particular about a
warrior’s fundamentals and cumulative progress. If Lian Chengyu could
meet all those requirements, he could get the recognition of the Tai Ah
Divine Kingdom’s officers during the warrior selection, and obtain
However, the circumstances did not permit so. After picking dry the Lian
Clan Herb Mountain, Lian Chengyu’s cultivation had a slow development
despite all the good herbs!
Lian Chengyu believed he had met his bottleneck.
In fact, the attitude towards martial arts mattered most when in
isolation. With a good attitude, strong confidence and perseverance, it
would be easy to break though.
When in self-doubt, thinking something was wrong with the cultivation
process, such as hitting a bottleneck, it would inevitably cause a loss
in momentum and make breaking through even tougher.
The psychological effect usually did not have significant effects, but
Lian Chengyu had originally lacked the resources for his cultivation, but
matters were made worse, causing Lian Chengyu’s progress to be even
slower. In the end, he chose to end his isolation prematurely.
By clearing his mind and taking a break before obtaining the desolate
bone essence, he could then re-isolate himself to breakthrough into the
Purple Blood realm.
This was Lian Chengyu’s plans. It was a reasonable plan. Sometimes it
happened that a breakthrough was not possible, but by taking a break
resulted in miraculous insight, resulting in a breakthrough unknowingly.
“How has the refinement process of the desolate bones been?” Lian
Chengyu asked the question that concerned him the most. This piece of
desolate bone was his entire fortune and life!
“Yes, it’s still going as planned, but… A few of the poor villagers
involved in the refining were poisoned a few days ago. I was originally
planning on letting them hang on a few days, but seeing they were doing
badly, I gave them some Blood Thinning Pills. They have all recovered by
now and will not affect the refinement.”
Lian Chengyu knitted his eyebrows upon hearing it, “These trash are
really useless. It’s just been a few days and they can’t take the
toxicity from the Frost Python desolate bones! After eating the Blood
Thinning Pills, it will overdraw on their vitality. Under such
circumstances, they will die before the refinement of the desolate bones
Lian Chengyu’s words were cold and inhumane. The Patriarch felt he was
going overboard and said, “Chengyu…You are asking for too much. These
people seldom eat a proper meal or wear proper clothes. How would they be
able to endure the toxin from the Frost Python? They have already
sacrificed themselves for the Lian tribe. In the future when you make
your meteoric rise, you must take care of their families.”
“Got it,” said Lian Chengyu with a straight face. “I’m only
worried about the refinement process and fear it will be delayed
unnecessarily. If these people died too early, it would affect the
refinement process. Grandpa, please send the order down to the tribe to
gather more help. The more the merrier. With more people, they can all
share in the toxicity of the Frost Python and last longer. Although the
Blood Thinning Pill isn’t a very expensive drug, but with most of our
money gone, we have to save every penny.”

Lian Chengyu said it lightly. The Patriarch sighed hearing this. He knew
that for every person recruited, another life was lost.
The pitiful poor even scrambled to join in the refining of the desolate
bone for the bacon.
“For the Lian tribe, I guess it has to be so…” exclaimed the
Patriarch “It’s such a pity. If we had a set of desolate bones
without any toxicity, there wouldn’t be so many deaths due to the
“A set of desolate bones without toxin?“ Lian Chengyu scoffed.
“With the finances of our tribe and that incomplete technique manual,
would we have been able to exchange for a set of desolate bones without
“Besides, the Frost Python desolate bones does not have toxin, it just
has a hard to dissipate frost Qi. Once it enters the body, it freezes the
organs, causing a person to lose his life. With a Desolate Heaven Master
he could easily dissipate the Frost Python’s Frost Qi. But why would a
Desolate Heaven Master be willing to help clear such a low-grade desolate
bone’s toxicity? There was no chance for them to come to our Lian
“Even the young masters of the big tribes were unwilling to use this
kinds of desolate bones. Only because this set of Frost Python desolate
bones was the cheapest I could get. Just like how a rich family will give
the remaining bones to feed the dogs, to the big tribes, I’m like a
wild dog waiting to eat their scraps!”
Lian Chengyu self-deprecating last words were said with his lips
twitching and fists clenched tightly, with his nails piercing into his
The young masters and mistresses of the large tribes could pick among the
desolate bones, not using those with side effects or low efficacy!

But for him, he had to go through all the trouble and sacrificing his
wealth just to obtain a rejected piece of Frost Python desolate bones!
Putting all hope on a set of desolate bones, which had immense side
effects, and risking his life to consume it was pathetic!
“Chengyu, it has been hard on you all these years. But you have to know
even the bright in the big tribes are few in number. There are even
plenty without the talent in the big tribes, they too don’t get much of
the desolate beast meat…” The Patriarch felt guilty. He knew Lian
Chengyu had great talent, but because the Lian tribal clan was too poor,
they were unable to nurture him. All these years, the Patriarch had known
that Lian Chengyu had a grudge towards the tribe despite him never
uttering a word.
It was hard for Lian Chengyu to listen to what the Patriarch had to say.
He answered, “Grandpa, don’t console me. Heaven is heartless,
treating all things as dogs. Since the world is unfair, I will use my own
strength to gain that fairness! Sooner or later, I will take control of
my life, and will take control of the lives of others! In the future, I
will have all the children of the big tribes at my feet!”
“I understand,” sighed the Patriarch. “Tomorrow I will pass the
order to gather more people to refine the desolate bones. I will not care
about the number of deaths. With more people, they can absorb more of the
Frost Qi…making it safer for you when you consume the desolate bones.”
The Patriarch knew that Lian Chengyu would not feel any remorse for the
poor who died for him.
Lian Chengyu hated the unfairness of the world. He felt he was extremely
unlucky, so how could he be bothered with the unluckiness of others?
To Lian Chengyu, the poor were like ants. Even Lian Chengyu saw himself
as a slightly bigger ant.
The survival of the fittest, this was a notion ingrained deep in Lian
Chengyu’s heart. Only by eating the smaller ants could he keep growing
till the point where he could control his own fate and the fate of
others, as a top expert.
