True Martial World - chapter-33
“How old are you?” Zhang Yuxian looked at the first person–a short
but stocky man. The members of the warrior preparation were both stout
This man had a considerable status in the Lian tribal clan. Even among
the warrior preparation camp, he was one of the strongest. He felt
honored being the first to be examined by Zhang Yuxian and was dying of
“Lord, I’m twenty-six this year. I can raise a 400 lb stone roller.
I’m not bullshitting. Such a heavy rock can be lifted by me four to
five times like a toy. If the Lord wants to follow me, I’ll lift it to
show you!” This man introduced himself confidently. Zhang Yuxian did
not take notice of his self-boasting words, and silently placed his hand
on the man’s shoulder. He began to inject Yuan Qi in.
One who has “Opened Heaven’s Eyes” could see a person’s muscles,
meridians, bones with a glance, and from there determine if a person was
suitable for martial arts.
However, Zhang Yuxian had not reached such a realm. So his selection
method was to inject a person with a little Yuan Qi, and see how the
person’s body would absorb it.
Those who could absorb it well had a suitable constitution. Those who had
poor absorption had an unsuitable constitution.
After a short venture, Zhang Yuxian was speechless. Less than 10% of the
amount of Yuan Qi he had injected was absorbed by the man. It was about
This talent was too unbearable to see.
“Do you think you can defeat your enemies just because you can lift
rocks?” Zhang Yuxian stared into the man’s eyes saying, “Your
constitution is extremely common, it’s not suitable for martial arts.”
Zhang Yuxian’s words were like a bucket of cold water splashed on the
man’s face. The self-boasting man was confused.

Not suitable for martial arts? How could I not be suitable for martial
That man felt extremely disgruntled, but coming into contact with Zhang
Yuxian’s cold stare, he faded backwards like a defeated c*ckfighter.
I was always stronger than my peers since young. I could lift a 400 lbs
stone roller when I grew up. If I wasn’t suited for martial arts, would
I be able to lift the heavy stone roller? These thoughts swirled in the
man’s mind. He had been practicing martial arts for years, and to be
told by Zhang Yuxian that he was unsuitable for martial arts, negated all
his previous efforts.
Of course, he only kept that in his mind for he did not have the courage
to contradict Zhang Yuxian.
“Stay here for now,” Zhang Yuxian did not plan on sending him packing
immediately, but kept him there.
It was because Zhang Yuxian knew that he had to be mentally prepared when
making a selection in the wilderness. It was hard for these people to
become an expert under such poor environments.
A tribe without any experts would continue on from one generation to the
next, and it was very unlikely a prodigy could transpire out of that.
But very quickly, Zhang Yuxian realized that he had underestimated the
extent of the poor quality of men in the vast wilderness. He began to
understand that there was no such thing as worst, only worse.
As he went down the line, the self-boasting man from before was actually
considered not bad. As he reached the end, most of them could only absorb
6-7%, there were even some who could only absorb 4-5%.

It was a terrible sight.
Zhang Yuxian could only lower his standards. He finally decided that all
those who could absorb more than 6% could stay behind.
“You…I guess you barely qualify.” Zhang Yuxian looked helplessly at
a stout man, and could only describe it with the word “barely”.
As he probed down the line, his elimination rate was at about 50%.
With about forty warrior preparation camp members, there were only about
twenty who qualified under such standards, clearly missing the thirty
“Lord Zhang sure is strict. Those soldiers from the warrior preparation
camp are so strong, but half of them were eliminated.”
“Thankfully we didn’t go up, or it will be so humiliating.
A few men who had previously wanted to make an attempt after seeing Yi
Yun signing up felt lucky.
Under such elimination practices, only a very gifted person could be
And they could tell that Zhang Yuxian was not really satisfied by the
people who had passed. It was only because there was no one else to
choose that he had to pick a general among the dwarves.
Upon understanding this, the crowd began to be admire Lian Chengyu even
Only Lian Chengyu won the praise of “extremely not bad”.
“Yun-er…”, clasped Jiang Xiaorou’s tiny hands. She looked at Yi
Yun worriedly. She knew that Yi Yun had been secretly practicing martial
arts the past few days, but she did not think that his ability would rise
above the members of the warrior preparation camp.
If Zhang Yuxian would not even pick those men from the warrior
preparation camp, how would he choose Yi Yun?
Jiang Xiaorou was still standing in the middle of the square. Her
position was extremely awkward. The crowd’s eyes were on her. Her
brother was among the preliminary candidates. Jiang Xiaorou could neither
retreat, nor could she stand there.
Yi Yun noticed Jiang Xiaorou’s worried eyes and moved his mouth
slightly, “Sis Xiaorou, don’t worry. I’ll be fine.”
Zhao Tiezhu burst out into laughter after hearing Yi Yun’s words,
“You f**king bullshitter, I can pick any stray dog, and it would be
stronger than you. Lord Zhang would rather choose a dog as a disciple
rather than you!”
Facing the cynical mockery, Yi Yun could only stare coldly into Zhao
Tiezhu’s eyes saying, “You should just care for yourself, as for
myself, you don’t need to worry.”

“Ya hey! This kid sure got c*cky, to think he used those words against
me! If you were to be chosen today, I will uproot that large pagoda tree
by the village entrance and eat it, leaves and roots all.” Zhao Tiezhu
burst into laughter as he said that. At the same time, another man
standing beside Zhao Tiezhu, another warrior preparation camp member
echoed mockingly, “Then I’ll eat that big stone roller by the village
“Haha, you guys sure are humorous. I’ll join you guys by drinking all
the water in the East River.”
The men from the warrior preparation camp began to turn rowdy.
Yi Yun looked helplessly at these men and shrugged, “Whatever.”
At this time, Zhang Yuxian had already reached Zhao Tiezhu. Zhao Tiezhu
wiped off his smile and stood up straight.
Zhang Yuxian pressed on Zhao Tiezhu’s body and said “Twenty-eight?”
Zhao Tiezhu replied hastily, “The Lord sure has great eyes, little me
is indeed twenty-eight.”
Zhang Yuxian frowned for Zhao Tiezhu was also not satisfactory to him.
But considering that the numbers were too few, he reluctantly said, “I
guess you meet the minimum requirements. I will keep you to make up the
Zhang Yuxian began to reach the conclusion that having a Kingdom
selection in the Cloud Wilderness was a pointless endeavor.

Zhao Tiezhu heaved a sigh of relief, and shook his fists, “That’s
great! I passed!”
He was very excited and began demonstrating in front of Yi Yun. Although
he had barely met the minimum standard, he had still passed!
He was about to practice martial arts with the High Ambassador. When he
had a meteoric rise, he could marry multiple wives and walk towards the
peak of humanity, not something a weakling like Yi Yun could compare with.
At this time, Zhang Yuxian was in front of Yi Yun.
Everyone’s eyes were concentrated on Yi Yun’s body.
Lian Chengyu sneered, I want to see how you are going to get out of this!
That thought had bubbled into his mind, but he pricked it immediately. Yi
Yun was a mentally handicapped kid, so Yi Yun would be oblivious even if
he was humiliated.
A mentally handicapped kid did not need to wrap things up. Causing an
uproar was common. He might even mistake the jeers as compliments.
Lian Chengyu was speechless when his train of thought reached this
conclusion. It was akin to the quote that one should never argue with an
idiot, they will only bring you down to their level and beat you with

“Yi Yun, right?” as Zhang Yuxian stood before Yi Yun.
“Yes, mi Lord!”
“Have you never really practiced martial arts?”
Zhang Yuxian gave a wistful glance at Yi Yun. He was only at the Purple
Blood realm, and could not tell Yi Yun’s level, but he had felt that Yi
Yun’s body was hiding a power.
To be talented yet self-effacing!
“I’ve trained a bit,” Yi Yun chose his words wisely. Training by
stealing lessons was also considered training.
“Lord, this kid is lying!” Zhao Tiezhu began to snitch, “I can
attest to the fact that this kid has never practiced martial arts!”
Yi Yun looked at Zhao Tiezhu as if he was a retard, “How would you know
if I practiced martial arts? I’ve passed the tribal grounds multiple
times. I’ve also practiced some of what Instructor Yao had taught.”
Yi Yun openly admitted that he had practiced martial arts. This was to
prepare for the day when he had to reveal his real strength. It would
make people think he was a prodigy, lowering the risk of the discovery of
the Purple Crystal.

If not, he would be unable to explain where he got all his skills from.
“You secretly learned martial arts?” Hearing Yi Yun’s words, not
only did Zhao Tiezhu laugh, even the other members of the warrior
preparation camp were trying hard to hold it in. They did not dare be
audacious in front of Zhang Yuxian.
At this point, no one pursued his crime of secretly learning martial arts
by stealing lessons.
A member of the warrior preparation camp said, “Instructor Yao’s
“Dragon Rib Tiger Bone Fist” is so profound. We couldn’t even grasp
it by following his every move. You dull kid without any strength learned
it secretly? What could you have learned!”
Yi Yun could not be bothered to retort. He just wanted to leave the
impression that he had practiced martial arts. It could be used to
cushion the blow when he revealed his real strength.
Zhang Yuxian pondered as he placed his hand on Yi Yun’s shoulder,
slowly injecting his Yuan Qi.
Zhang Yuxian had not expected much. He had appreciated Yi Yun for his
bravery for it was rare for a kid to step forward under such
circumstances. Of course, appreciation was one thing, but the practice of
martial arts was not only about bravery.
The Yuan Qi Zhang Yuxian released into Yi Yun’s body completed a
circulation, and as he waited expectantly in receiving the Yuan Qi back
to see how much was absorbed…
He realized that the Yuan Qi he injected had disappeared without a trace!

“This is…” Zhang Yuxian stared, how could this be?
His brows began to jump as he refused to believe the situation he was in.
He injected another surge of Yuan Qi into Yi Yun’s body.
This burst of Yuan Qi entered Yi Yun’s meridians as if they had entered
a black hole. The moment it passed Yi Yun’s heart, it was absorbed by
the Purple Crystal, with not a drop left.
“You…” Zhang Yuxian was shocked. The Yuan Qi he had injected in Yi
Yun had been absorbed totally!?
Seeing Zhang Yuxian’s eyebrows jumping, Lian Chengyu did not know if
Zhang Yuxian had been angered. He walked to Zhang Yuxian’s side with a
Lian Chengyu’s thoughts revolved around the examination of the Lian
tribal clan Zhang Yuxian was conducting, but alas, an eccentric flower
like Yi Yun had messed it up.
Although he treated the lives of the Lian tribal clan as dirt, he did not
want the Lian tribal clan shamed in front of outsiders. It would result
in others thinking lowly of him.
Lian Chengyu reluctantly smiled, “Lord High Ambassador, the banquet has
been prepared. Shall we eat first?”
Lian Chengyu had wanted to divert Zhang Yuxian’s attention, wishing he
could cover up the incident with Yi Yun. But suddenly, Zhang Yuxian
grasped Yi Yun’s shoulders with both hands.
He measured up Yi Yun carefully.
A poor tribe in the vast wilderness could produce such a talent?
Besides, this youth in front of him had the courage and commitment
towards martial arts. He had proven himself by standing up in public.
Besides that, the youth had a hidden amount of power within himself. It
had sparked Zhang Yuxian’s interest.
“You are good, very good! I never thought that I would find such an
unpolished gem in a small tribe in the vast wilderness.” Zhang Yuxian
was not stingy with his compliments. His voice projected far and loud.
Beside Yi Yun was Zhao Tiezhu, who was ready to mock Yi Yun when he
failed to qualify. He suddenly widened his eyes like a rooster being
grabbed by the neck.
What did Lord Zhang just say, I did not hear wrongly!
Lian Chengyu who was gearing to lead Zhang Yuxian for a meal stood
dumbfounded. He was not sure how to react momentarily.

The outer ring of people who could not see the situation did not know
what had happened. Their interest was piqued after hearing Zhang Yuxian
“Who? Who received such a high compliment.” People in the outer ring
started jumping to catch a glimpse.
“You have a ‘Seamless Body’. Even a low grade Purple Blood Seamless
Body is extremely good! You will be appreciated even in a large tribe!”
The people, including Lian Chengyu did not know the term Seamless Body.
But this did not prevent them from understanding Zhang Yuxian’s

Yuxian’s compliments for Yi Yun had exceeded Lian Chengyu!
How could this be. Zhao Tiezhu felt like he had eaten a pound of shit,
leaving a spectacular expression on his face.

The other warrior preparation camp members were all dumbfounded. Their
mouths gaped open.
“Brother, he…” Jiang Xiaorou’s eyes were watery. She was the only
person who had wished that Yi Yun would amount to something. However,
happiness had came too suddenly that even she had trouble believing it.
She had seen Yi Yun’s growth since he was wearing diapers. She had
never felt that Yi Yun was talented. Was what Zhang Yuxian said true?
Jiang Xiaorou felt something iffy. Even Lian Chengyu’s evaluation was
weaker than her brother’s?
“This kid is a martial arts prodigy? How could this be!” Lian Chengyu
clenched his fists. He could not accept it.
Zhang Yuxian had favored Yi Yun even more!
Lian Chengyu was always the number one prodigy in the Lian tribal clan,
how could he tolerate someone exceeding him?
Besides, the other person was a young slave!
“This…Lord High Ambassador, you say this kid is a martial arts
prodigy? Could you have made a mistake…” Everyone doubted Zhang
Yuxian’s words but only Zhao Tiezhu could not keep it in and dumbly

Zhang Yuxian’s face turned solemn, and said coldly, “You doubt me?”
“Uh…” Zhao Tiezhu was shocked. He shook his head vigorously, “No,
I dare not, little me doesn’t dare.”
Zhang Yuxian gave a cold glance towards Zhao Tiezhu saying, “I have
limited time. In an hour, those who were selected, gather around here. I
will impart martial arts to you for three days!”
Saying that, Zhang Yuxian left. He had no interest in the welcoming
Zhao Tiezhu, Lian Chengyu and the rest of the warrior preparation camp
were staring with utter bewilderment.
They looked at Yi Yun as if he was a freak. They could not accept the
Yi Yun had passed the preliminaries. He had even received extremely high
compliments. How could that be?
“Yun-er!” Jiang Xiaorou had seen the glares Lian Chengyu and company
shot at Yi Yun. She rushed forward to pull Yi Yun by her side, worried
“I don’t believe it! I don’t believe it! That Lord said I was not
suitable for martial arts. He even said this kid was some gem, or what
body. I can lift a 400 lb stone roller. That kid doesn’t seem like he
can even hold a chicken firmly. I can’t be compared with him?”

That short stout man began shouting.
His words were met with astounding response.
“I can’t compare with that kid? I don’t believe it!”
“This kid sure has some sh*t good luck!”
The warrior preparation camp were originally full of confidence, but it
had been wiped clean during Zhang Yuxian’s preliminary examination. Yi
Yun was the only one who had received high compliments.
They were definitely disgruntled.
At this point, Zhao Tiezhu walked towards Yi Yun, saying, “Kiddo,
don’t be too proud. I’m not sure what was wrong with Lord Zhang. You
think we don’t know? You have been ill-ridden since young, like a
little chick. You can’t even lift a 50 lb rock weight. You almost died
picking herbs. Such a person as a martial arts prodigy? My foot!”
Zhao Tiezhu was not wrong. The children of Yi Yun’s age could lift 50
lb rock weights, and Yi Yun could barely lift 30 lbs a few months ago.
Yi Yun himself did not expect a “Seamless Body” assessment.

Yi Yun having the Purple Crystal and his keen senses from entering the
Meridians realm had already guessed what Zhang Yuxian was doing. He had
injected energy to test a person’s talent.
This energy was absorbed by the Purple Crystal, resulting in the
misunderstanding by Zhang Yuxian.
To be honest about his talent, his body’s innate talent was nothing out
of the ordinary. There was definitely no Seamless Body.
A real martial artist prodigy would not have such a poor constitution
like Yi Yun. If a body had a high affinity with energy, it would absorb
energy from the surroundings in an invisible manner, causing the body to

of disdain, “What? Disgruntled? If you are disgruntled, you can fight

throat. His remained silent as his eyes stared like a dead fish on the

statements. No one took responsibility for what they said. The words they

to make preparations for practicing martial arts with Lord Zhang. Also
