True Martial World - chapter-44
“Master, didn’t you say we were going to the northwestern divine
wilderness to kill the desolate beasts there? Why did we end up coming to
the Cloud Wilderness? The Cloud Wilderness is a barren heathland,
probably void of strong desolate beasts!” The young girl said with a
sweet and gentle voice.
“Northwestern divine wilderness…Sigh. You were born with Yin
Meridians and lack physical strength. Among the desolate beasts that roam
the Northwestern divine wilderness, there are some high level desolate
beasts. It will be tough for you to handle them,” the fat elder shook
“Alright, Xingtong, I’ll give you fifteen minutes to refine this
level six fierce beast into a desolate bone relic. As mentioned before,
this is to give you experience. Unless your life is in danger, I will not
interfere.” After the fat elder finished his words, he chose a big rock
to rest his buttocks, and began to look at the scenery.
The girl nodded her head. She rolled up her sleeves with a finger, then
she took out a bronze disk. The bronze disk was inscribed with dense
runes. The moment the disk appeared, it flew up into the sky and grew
larger. Very soon, the disk was about the size of a house. Following
that, the level six fierce beast was absorbed by the disk, turning into a
blinding white light.
In the white light, the fierce beast’s carcass seemed to burn up. Its
flesh melted and together with the essence from the blood, it seeped into
the bones. In a few seconds, the fierce beast had turned into a skeleton.
After a few more seconds, the skeleton also began to melt and started to
As this was going on, the girl’s fingers began to link up to form a
seal. Her fingers were long, and due to the fast movements of the sealing
process, finger shadows were formed. Series of sealing charms were sent
out by her, flying into the disk, combining with the beast’s bones.
In less than fifteen minutes, the entire beast’s bones had completely
melted, eventually reducing to a bone relic the size of a green bean. If
Lian Chengyu saw this scene, he would have yelped out in shock.
Desolate Heaven Master! This young girl was a Desolate Heaven Master! It
was hard to believe the girl had this fearsome ability of easily refining
a level six fierce beast in less than fifteen minutes. If this girl
wanted, refining the Lian tribal clan’s Frost Python desolate bones
would have been a breeze!
The bone relic fell into the palm of the girl who began frowning upon
seeing the bone relic. She was clearly not satisfied. “It’s still not
small enough.” The girl shook her head. Her goal was to reduce a six
grade fierce beast to the size of a rice grain in fifteen minutes.
Judging from the outcome, it seemed like she was still a distance away
from the goal.
“Xintong, don’t be too eager. You are the most talented Desolate
Heaven Master I’ve seen in all my years of walking the world, too
bad…” The fat elder said with a sigh. To be able to reduce a six
grade fierce beast to a relic the size of a rice grain within fifteen
minutes was not something he could have done at seventeen.

It was a pity that the girl named Xintong had Yin Meridians. Her skin was
so pale because of the Yin Meridians. Having Yin Meridians was an
extremely rare condition. It was a terminal illness that would only
appear in females.
A girl with Yin Meridians was weak to the cold. Even during the summer,
she would have to wear a coat. A normal person with Yin Meridians would
at most live to eighteen before falling into a slumber for two to three
days. As time went on, she would sleep longer and more frequently, to the
point of each slumber lasting nearly a year. Over time, her body’s
vitality would slowly wilt away, eventually leading to death.
But Xintong was born in the ancient Lin family clan, which had an old
heritage. With the support of the Lin family, she could consume fire
elemental desolate beast relics. With the fire elemental relics’ pure
Yang, she was able to combat the chilling cold within her body.
Although living a long life wasn’t a problem, for cultivation it was a
different story. A person born with Yin Meridians could never completely
open up her meridians during the Meridian realm. A latent danger would
result from this realm. It would also be harder to cultivate to a higher
realm, and the higher it was, the more difficult it was. Eventually, a
bottleneck was reached!
Although having Yin Meridians was a curse, there were always exceptions.
Legends told of a human Great Empress who had Yin Meridians during
ancient times. She had used her own strength to connect her meridians.
When the Yin Meridians were connected again, an unknown transformation
would happen. However, this was poorly documented in the history books.
Lin Xintong’s master was this fat elder. He had tried to connect up Lin
Xintong’s broken meridians, but from the ancient methods left by
Desolate Heaven Masters, none of them were successful. Those ancient
methods were arcane and obscure. Be it the ingredients or the refinement
techniques, they were too confusing for the old fat man, resulting in
abysmal results. The fat elder cared for his disciple and had tried all
sorts of methods while wandering the vast wilderness, but to no avail.
“Master, don’t sigh. Although I have Yin Meridians, with fire
elemental bone relics, I can live for at least three hundred years. I’m
much more blessed than other commoners.” The young girl having born
from a clan with ancient heritage never worried about her meals and had
seen all sorts of treasures. But over the years of wandering the
wilderness, her experience taught her the hardships of the world. She
knew how commoners struggled in this world. This made her sympathetic.
Indeed, although she had Yin Meridians, she was much more blessed than
the commoners by thousands of times.
The girl swallowed the bone relic that she had just completed refining. A
bone relic refined from fierce beasts was poorer in quality to a desolate
bone relic. However, few warriors actually ate desolate bone relics. It
was enough to eat fierce beast relics, as it took a long time to refine a
desolate bone relic.
“Up ahead, we will enter the territory of the Lian tribal clan. Hmm,
this Lian tribal clan is a small tribe of less than a thousand
households. We don’t really have to enter.” said the fat elder as he
took out a map made of rubber. He unfurled it and while looking at it
said happily, “This map is all thanks to the Tai Ah Divine Kingdom’s
Jin Long Wei. They created a new map. Originally the map of the Cloud
Wilderness had not been updated in eight hundred years. Many small tribes
had changed positions. An old map would not have all this indications.”
Lin Xintong looked at her master’s map, provoking a sense of doubt
within her. To make a map of the Cloud Wilderness was a thankless and
pointless job. Those small tribes were as many as the sand grains of the
five Ganges Rivers. It was unknown which tribe would collapse, giving
birth to a new one. Such a detailed map required a great deal of effort
to draw, but it would be useless in about a hundred years.
Connecting it to the recent ongoings of the Tai Ah Divine Kingdom in the
Cloud Wilderness, Lin Xintong asked, “Master, why did we travel from
afar to come to the Cloud Wilderness on purpose? Also, I heard that the
Tai Ah Divine Kingdom has sent the Jin Long Wei here, in preparation for
the warrior selection in the Cloud Wilderness soon. It requires a lot of
effort to hold a warrior selection in the vast wilderness, so why did the
Tai Ah Divine Kingdom do it?”
“Is the reason why we are here in the Cloud Wilderness related to the
Tai Ah Divine Kingdom’s selection?”
