True Martial World - chapter-54
Seeing the head, Yi Yun suddenly constricted his pupils.
This head was covered with red scales. It was unknown how such beautiful
scales were blackened.
Its head had three horns, sharp as a sword. It had sharp canine teeth and
two long and thin feelers. It didn’t look hideous, but even seemed to
possess some dignity.
Although it was already dead, its two green eyes still seemed to possess
a cold killing intent, giving a chilling feeling.
Yi Yun did not know why for besides the killing intent he felt coming
from the eyes of a dead fierce beast, he also felt a faint sense of
“Its called a Chi Lin beast!” came a faint voice. It was not the fat
elder but Lin Xintong.
To Yi Yun, Lin Xintong’s voice was soft and gentle like a pearlbush
Yi Yun was slightly stunned as he took a look at Lin Xintong. Ever since
he had met them, Lin Xintong had been extremely quiet except when they
sparred. She had never cut into his conversation with the old man.
Lin Xintong said, “Chi Lin beast is a desolate beast. Although its
desolate bone quality is not low, a Chi Lin beast’s strength is quite
weak among other desolate beasts. Chi Lin beasts are special. A small
portion of them would suddenly die at the prime of their life.”
“Oh?” Yi Yun dazed a moment. Suicide?
Lin Xintong carried on, “Rumor says that Chi Lin beasts have the blood
of the Fire Qi Lin. If they light up their body’s meridians, they can
transform into a real Fire Qi Lin amidst the fire.”
“But the current Chi Lin beasts have descended by an unknown number of
generations. Even if they really were the bloodline of the ancient Fire
Qi Lin, they would be extremely rare. So most normal Chi Lin beasts would
just lead a normal life for a few hundred years before they die of age.”
“However…some Chi Lin beasts do not share similar thoughts. From the
moment they were born, they would search and swallow all sorts of fire
elemental items. They would even swallow fire and gather a large amount
of fire energy within their body till their bodies cannot take it. They
would then explode into Chi Lin flames!”
“These Chi Lin beasts would then undergo the baptism of fire. In that
fire, they will search for their ancestor’s Fire Qi Lin bloodline.”
“But…they only have one outcome, and that is to burn to their deaths,
without any exception…”
“Sometimes I guess that they probably know it clearly that it is
impossible to awaken their ancestor’s bloodline within themselves. But
they would still not hesitate to do so, because although they could live
their lives peacefully for hundreds of years, they would rather ignite a
Chi Lin flame within themselves at their prime and die in the fire.”
Lin Xintong’s voice grew faint. The Chi Lin beast was a desolate beast
she knew for a very long time.
She felt like a Chi Lin beast. Having been born with Yin Meridians, she
was unable to break her curse. To be able to connect her broken
meridians, she had to be like the Chi Lin beasts who aimed to awaken
their ancient Fire Qi Lin bloodline.

It was as hard as ascending to heaven, and was equivalent to bringing
destruction on herself.
Was she to choose the life of a normal Chi Lin beast, and live an
ordinary life for hundreds of years before dying, or to choose to be the
brave ones among the Chi Lin beasts, to attempt at breaking the confines
of their destiny, without worrying about sacrificing their lives?
Actually Lin Xintong had already made up her mind in her heart…
Hearing Lin Xintong’s words, Yi Yun was silent.
Born to search for flames and choosing the fire elemental items that were
the hottest. Using them as food till they burned their bodies, and
eventually dying within the flames.
Even if they knew they had no chance of transforming into a Fire Qi Lin,
they were willing to chase this shiny dream at the expense of their life.
Because they were not willing to live amongst the weak. It could be
summarized with a phrase that is: “Unwilling to stay ordinary! “
Yes, unwilling to stay ordinary. Yi Yun too was unwilling to stay
ordinary. But he did not know that the gentle and weak Lin Xintong in
front of him shared similar thoughts.
“Sir, are you using the Chi Lin beast to encourage the younger
generation, or are you advising the younger generation to not be
overconfident to the point of burning one’s own fingers?” asked Yi
The source of this content is
The fat elder grunted in reply, “You think too much. What’s the point
of encouraging you with your constitution? I can at most tell you not to
be overconfident. In this world, there are plenty who practice martial
arts. Many have brought destruction on themselves. In order to obtain
more resources they have gone out into the wilderness by themselves
without knowing themselves and ended up in the stomachs of wild beasts!”
Although the fat elder had a vile tongue, his words had sincere advice
within. Yi Yun humbly said, “I’ve been educated.”
“Well…” Seeing Yi Yun’s attitude, the fat elder was very
satisfied. “The book Xintong left you is too good for you. Read it
well. Although I think you have a poor constitution, your perceptivity
still meets the mark. As for your ‘Dragon Rib Tiger Bone Fist’,
it’s so-so. Read Xintong’s book, and your strength should improve.”
Between the lines, the fat elder’s words were purposely disparaging
towards Yi Yun, but Yi Yun could tell that they were words of
encouragement, so he humbly accepted the advice.
“Ai, such a pity.” The fat elder shook his head and changed the
subject. “Oh, kid you may not know, but if you were to sell this book
in an ancient clan, and say that it has notes made by Xintong, I have no
idea how many young masters will be willing to make a high bid for it. To
these young masters, Xintong is…”
Lin Xintong grumpily interrupted the fat elder. For a particular reason,
she was indeed the pursuit of many sons of the big families in an ancient
clan. If not for her master taking her in as a disciple, she would have
already been betrothed.
After all, although Lin Xintong had excellent talent, due to her Yin
Meridians, her power was limited, so her life span was just a few hundred
A big family clan was very utilitarian. Everything was done for the
family’s interest. Clearly betrothing her would obtain the support of
another family, which further pushed the interests of the family clan.

“Forget it, forget it.” waved the fat elder’s hand. He changed
topics and said, “Hey kid. This Chi Lin beast’s head is yours. Chi
Lin beasts are a bit special. After it dies, the Yuan Qi within its body
will slowly emanate. It could do this for ten years. So if you were to
hide this head properly, you can still absorb its Yuan Qi without
refining it. It will depend on yourself how much you will be able to
From the fat elder’s point of view, Yi Yun was not capable of refining
the desolate bones. Also with Yi Yun’s foundation, it was unlikely he
would be able to digest the Chi Lin beast’s head. Letting the energy
emanate out and slowly absorbing it was the best method.
Of course this method was too slow. How could the sons from huge family
clans wait ten years?
“Kid, although I’ve already told you. I can guess that you will still
want to go out into the vast wilderness to gain experience. No matter.
I’ll write you a protective charm. When you reach the peak of Qi
Gatherer, this protective charm will be activated. It can protect your
life once. If one day we were fated to meet again, and you had not used
the protective charm, you can use it as a gift to me.”
“Eh? Why are you looking at me in that manner?” The fat elder asked
as he noticed Yi Yun’s eyes filled with suspicion.
Yi Yun did not expect that the old man was offering to give him some
benefit. The sun must have risen from the west.
But if he offered to give something, was it trustworthy?
