True Martial World - chapter-3
Before following Jiang Xiaorou, Yi Yun never expected that “home”
would look like this. When Yi Yun originally saw the sword bearer riding
that huge beast, he guessed that this world was one filled with flying
martial arts experts, with elites from all sorts of large clans.
Having tunneled through mysteriously, if he could be involved in a huge
clan or sect, he could even learn martial arts one day. Even if he lacked
talent, he would still be able to survive without worry.
But, seeing the ramshackled house in front of him, Yi Yun nearly
In the past, Yi Yun had gone to rural villages, the houses he saw there
were many times better than the house in front of him now.
This spartan house was made of mud and rocks. Besides a table, two
stools, two old beds and a stove, there was nothing else.
Jiang Xiaorou piggybacked Yi Yun into the house. Yi Yun was not
accustomed to being piggybacked by a young girl. He had struggled to get
down a few times, but his body was just too weak. Just a couple of steps
tired him out and then Jiang Xiaorou had to piggyback him again.
Yi Yun felt embarrassed that a man like him had to be given a piggyback
by such a young girl.
“Yun’er, you must be hungry…” Jiang Xiaorou said as she placed Yi
Yun on one of the wooden beds. Although she was sweating profusely, her
face was energetic. She was naturally happy that her younger brother had
come back from the dead.
Yi Yun looked at Jiang Xiaorou’s sweaty clothes. Although his body was
thin and light, the journey had been at least three or four miles. Jiang
Xiaorou, who was about fifteen years old, had to piggyback him
sporadically and she did not have it easy.
If it had been a fifteen-year-old girl from Earth, simply walking
empty-handed for three to five miles would have tired her out completely,
not to mention giving someone a piggyback ride.

“Yea… A… A bit.” Yi Yun moved his parched lips. These were the
first words that came out of his mouth ever since he had been transported
to this world. He originally thought that using a language that wasn’t
his would be difficult, if not impossible. But surprisingly, it was just
as easy as using his native language.
“I’ll prepare the meal,” Jiang Xiaorou said with a smile. She
delicately wiped the mud from Yi Yun’s face before pulling over a
pillow for Yi Yun to rest against and covered him with a thin blanket.
She covered Yi Yun in a deft and gentle manner, leaving Yi Yun in a
This girl was clearly not his sister, but due to her giving him a
piggyback as well as the meticulous care she gave him, he slowly began to
develop tender feelings for her.
Yi Yun wanted to help Jiang Xiaorou light the fire for the stove, but she
insisted that he stayed in bed.
“You’ve just recovered from a serious illness, take care to not catch
a cold. Lie down here, Sis will be back soon.” Jiang Xiaorou said as
she lifted a nearly empty bag of grain.
Fifteen minutes later, Jiang Xiaorou placed the broken wooden table in
front of the bed. On the table was a big bowl of rice porridge, two
unknown wild fruits and a bowl of boiled wild vegetables.
Yi Yun had been starving for days so his stomach started rumbling the
moment he saw the food.
Yi Yun was craving for pork or some roasted chicken, or duck and fish.
Just the thought of it churned Yi Yun’s stomach.
How can I satiate my extreme hunger with this?

He wolfed down a large mouthful of porridge. His empty stomach reacted by
making him even hungrier.
He ate a few mouths of porridge and some of the boiled oil-less
vegetables. The vegetables were so bitter that he even had trouble
swallowing more of the food despite his extreme hunger.
As Yi Yun had trouble swallowing such an unpalatable meal, he noticed
that Xiaorou was looking at him without eating; he curiously asked,
“Why aren’t you eating?”
“I ate just before I found you,” Jiang Xiaorou stammered as she
Yi Yun paused; he recalled that Jiang Xiaorou was at the graveyard at
around three in the afternoon, how could she have eaten by then?
It suddenly dawned on him that even food like this was probably not
What sort of world is this, with strong experts riding wild beasts, yet
there were poor people that starved?
Yi Yun pushed the bowl of porridge forward and stood up to go check the
grain bag in the corner of the house. As expected, the grain bag was

smaller in quantity. Because of his resurrection, Xiaorou had purposely
cooked more porridge for a weakened him to “nurse him up”.

“I’m full. You have some,” Yi Yun said as he pushed the bowl to
Jiang Xiaorou. On one hand, he had lost his appetite, while on the other
hand; he couldn’t accept that a girl had to abstain from eating just to
He lamented in his heart if it was still possible to return to his world
from this alternate world. If he really couldn’t, he wanted to find an
opportunity to train and become a soaring expert.
But from the looks of it, survival was an issue. He might even starve to
death before he researched anything.
“I’m not hungry,” Jiang Xiaorou stubbornly said. “Tomorrow is the
day that they hand out rations, we can get a piece of meat then. I’ll
prepare it for you.”
Jiang Xiaorou’s face blushed the moment she mentioned the handing out
of rations. It was clear that she highly anticipated it.
Yi Yun stayed silent. On Earth, he felt that life was tough. But compared
to this alternate world, that sort of life was incomparable. With
insufficient food and the constant danger of starvation, life was really
tough. It was really torturous to endure hunger.
In the middle of the night, a night breeze slowly blew as frogs hidden
within the pond grass croaked. Yi Yun was still awake. He leaned on the
bed, immersed in moonlight. He tossed and turned while holding the
mysterious Purple Crystal. It was all because of the Purple Crystal that
resulted in him climbing out of the collapsed mountain body. This small
crystal card was unquestionably a treasure. If he studied it, it could
potentially be beneficial in some way.
This alternate world was filled with dangers for normal people. But in
recollection, the middle-aged man riding the huge beast in the wilderness
had a commanding aura. Compared to the suffering people folk, the
differences were like Heaven and Earth.
“If I were to become an expert, I could be free. At the very least, I

Yi Yun touched his stomach as he recalled how he eventually managed to
give some of his dinner to Jiang Xiaorou. As he was still a growing
child, the porridge had long since been digested, he was already hungry
As he felt the emptiness of his stomach, the smooth and cold Purple
Crystal in his hand started to spread a faint coolness, as if…
Yi Yun suddenly noticed something. He bolted up from bed as he stared at
the Purple Crystal. An ecstatic smile crept upon his face.
Upon careful examination, Yi Yun noticed that tiny, faint purple dots of
light surrounded the Purple Crystal.
These light dots appeared out of nowhere and slowly floated into the
Purple Crystal before they disappeared, as if the Purple Crystal absorbed
them. This process carried on indefinitely as the Purple Crystal’s glow
became a bit more intense.
What is the meaning of this?
This discovery caused Yi Yun’s breathing to speed up.
As the Purple Crystal’s glow became brighter, Yi Yun felt the Purple
Crystal turn colder. This unique coolness traversed up both his arms,
into all his limbs, as if the miraculous light cleansed his body. It
absolutely refreshed him.

Yi Yun remembered this feeling. While he was digging his way out of the
cave, he felt this coolness whenever he was out of breath. It rejuvenated
him with strength whenever his body was failing him.
Yi Yun knew that, for a person to live and to move, it was due to energy
that was provided to the body, allowing it to renew itself.
Without eating, there would be no nutrition. Naturally there would not be
energy either, and will in the end result in starvation.
Completing such a long tunnel without eating or drinking for days, with
intense labor conditions requires an energy source. This coolness must be
the Purple Crystal providing him with life-giving energy.
Thinking carefully, when he originally discovered the Purple Crystal in
the cave, the Purple Crystal was emitting a faint glow like a night pearl.
However after tunnelling into this strange world, the Purple Crystal’s
glow had weakened. This could have been a result of energy depletion.
But now, the Purple Crystal’s glow was beginning to recharge and grow
stronger. What could be the energy source that was recharging the Purple
Yi Yun carefully observed and realized that these vague tiny dots formed
a surface leading out the window. It seemed like it… came from
Starlight was the energy source recharging the Purple Crystal?

Yi Yun thought for a while and jumped out of bed. He went to the stove
and dug out some burning coal. He lit a handful of grass and watched as
the yellow flames danced.
Yi Yun carefully placed the Purple Crystal in the burning fire.
Yi Yun’s theory was simple, if the Purple Crystal could absorb the
energy from starlight, it could perhaps absorb the energy from its
Fire, which is a form of energy in Yi Yun’s understanding was likely
stronger than starlight. If the Purple Crystal absorbed the energy in the
flames, it could be faster?
Yi Yun did not once consider the possibility that the flames could
destroy the Purple Crystal.
But, no matter how much Yi Yun burned the Purple Crystal, the Purple
Crystal showed no change, nor could he feel the Purple Crystal gain any
The Purple Crystal was like a block of ice which couldn’t melt. It was
cold to the touch even after the coal fire died down.
Yi Yun shook his head as he abandoned the experiment.
He decided to venture outside the house. The starlight outside would be
denser and could provide the Purple Crystal with more energy.

If the Purple Crystal was filled to the brim with energy, what sort of
changes could it bring?
Yi Yun eagerly anticipated the thought!
Yi Yun opened the house door and the courtyard door before carefully
closing them behind him. He was afraid to wake the sister up in the
adjacent room. But when Yi Yun walked into the courtyard, he was slightly
He saw a girl in green, sitting under a tree not far from him. She was
carefully polishing an arrowhead.
The cold arrowhead reflected the chilly moonlight onto the girl’s
delicate face, as if veiling her in a layer of silver yarn. By the
girl’s side flew dozens of fireflies, as if they were surrounding a
Yi Yun saw a shiny stack of arrows by Jiang Xiaorou’s side. Each arrow
was well manufactured with a sharp arrowhead.
Although Yi Yun didn’t know anything about weapons, he could appreciate
the elegance of these arrows.

“Yun’er, why did you get up? It’s very moist at night and your body
just recovered. Go back to bed quickly,” Jiang Xiaorou immediately
stood up with the intention of sending Yi Yun back into the house.
“Sis, why are there so many arrows?” a curious Yi Yun asked. Jiang
Xiaorou didn’t seem like she could string a bow.
“This is for the exchange of tomorrow’s rations. It has always been

did not have a single clue about the life of “Yi Yun”. All of his
memories were his own.

once, so there are some things I can’t remember…”
“You can’t remember?” a startled Jiang Xiaorou asked. Yi Yun had
fallen down from a mountain wall while picking herbs and broke his bones.
He had then laid bedridden for a while before he succumbed to his
injuries. He might have hurt his head back then.
Thinking of that, Jiang Xiaorou’s heart ached and worried. “Yun’er,
