Soul Slayer Chronicle Chapter 16

One hour, two hours.

As time relentlessly moved forward, when the second day arrived, Jiang Xiaobai finally managed to pick up a book with great effort.

But regrettably, he couldn’t last more than thirty seconds.

Even so, he was already very satisfied.

After all, this gave him hope.

“Xiaobai, do you want to come with me to the West and East areas today?”

Half an hour later, Zhou Bin’s voice came through.

“Uh, I’m feeling a little uncomfortable, I want to rest some more!”

While opening his eyes, Jiang Xiaobai looked at Zhou Bin with a smile.

Right now, his focus was all on cultivating his ethereal soul.

“Alright then!”

Zhou Bin naturally had no objections.

Jiang Xiaobai was a formal disciple under Elder Huang and could freely manage his time, unlike Zhou Bin, who as a beast caretaker, had tasks to do every day.

As Zhou Bin left, a shadowy figure followed him.

Yes, that was his demon cultivator’s soul.

Since the alchemical soul could stay in the Medicinal Spirit Land, his demon cultivator’s soul could also remain in the Beast Spirit Land.

This way, even if he didn’t go to the East or West areas, he could still absorb the demonic energy gathering there.

And he himself could use all this ample time.

To cultivate both ethereal souls and to enhance his own cultivation.

To break through to the first layer of Qi refining as soon as possible!

Time passed, and a short week went by in the blink of an eye.

During this week, Jiang Xiaobai, aside from cultivating, was honing his two ethereal souls.

And through this week of honing, both his souls could withstand certain heavy objects.

Especially the alchemical soul, could now hold a book for more than three hours at a time.

So the number of books he’s read, he’s lost track of.

This may sound somewhat perverse, but it was true.

Because when facing alchemy knowledge, the alchemical soul could almost remember everything at a glance, imprinting it deep into memory.

Because of this, his reading volume was increasing exponentially.

As for cultivation, compared with the progress of the two souls, it was actually not as satisfactory.

This might also be due to his subpar spiritual roots.

During this week, there was some progress in his cultivation, but not much.

What was previously as thin as a pinky finger was now about the thickness of a thumb.

And this was after he had taken a medicinal pill given by Huang Linyuan.

Otherwise, his progress would have been even slower.

When would he reach the first layer of Qi refining!

Jiang Xiaobai felt the urgency in his heart.

After all, only after reaching the first layer of Qi refining, would Huang Linyuan be willing to teach him the Way of Beast Taming.

With a sigh, Jiang Xiaobai couldn’t help but think of alchemy.

Right, if he could make his own medicinal pills, that would be great.

Because with his current theoretical knowledge, creating a formula to boost his cultivation was no problem at all.

It’s just a pity.

However…

Jiang Xiaobai narrowed his eyes slightly.

If he could get to know an alchemist, then this issue could be resolved.

But alchemists are of noble status, not someone he could just get to know.

As he sighed inwardly, Zhou Bin’s voice rang out, “Xiaobai, you’ve been cooped up for a whole week now, how about going out for a walk today?”

Jiang Xiaobai looked up and found Zhou Bin staring at him.

“Xiaobai, cultivation is important, but so is maintaining the best state of mind!”

Zhou Bin spoke again.

Indeed, every day he left in the morning, Jiang Xiaobai would be sitting there.

When he returned, Jiang Xiaobai would still be sitting there, not even having moved from his spot.

And Jiang Xiaobai still had his afflictions, continuing this high intensity without break could make things worse.

Suddenly, Jiang Xiaobai thought of something, his eyes flickered, and he said to Zhou Bin, “Big Brother Zhou, I remember you mentioned that the waste grass here is all from the Medicinal Spirit Land?”

“That’s right!”

Zhou Bin spoke, “Every once in a while, we have to go and collect some!”

“Can we go and collect some today, I… I want to see the Medicinal Spirit Land!” Jiang Xiaobai urgently asked.

“It’s not impossible!”

Zhou Bin hesitated and then said, “Alright, I’ll take you there today! Consider it a break for you!”

“But, only after I’m done with my tasks!”

“Okay, I’ll accompany you!”

Jiang Xiaobai got up excitedly, following Zhou Bin out of their residence.

Arriving outside, Jiang Xiaobai couldn’t help but take a deep breath, almost feeling intoxicated!

That’s right, the air at Yunjian Sect was too good, compared to the secular world’s air, this was full of spiritual energy.

It took a good while before he calmed down.

After calming down, he felt a pain in his chest and couldn’t help coughing violently. Once recovered, Jiang Xiaobai wiped the blood from the corner of his mouth and said with a smile to Zhou Bin, “Big Brother Zhou, let’s go!”

Regarding Jiang Xiaobai’s condition, Zhou Bin couldn’t help but express his concern, “Xiaobai, are you okay?”

“It’s nothing, actually, my coughing frequency has decreased compared to before!”

Jiang Xiaobai showed a smile.

Indeed, these days, although he still coughed continuously, the frequency had noticeably decreased.

It seems that cultivation indeed was helping with his illness.

Zhou Bin’s lips moved, and in the end, he sighed and took the lead walking out.

Soon, the two, one after the other, arrived at the West area.

As soon as he got there, Jiang Xiaobai drew his demon cultivator’s soul back into his body.

He could clearly feel that this demon cultivator’s soul was more solid than before, perhaps due to continuously absorbing demonic energy.

Zhou Bin started introducing him to the surroundings.

Indeed, in his eyes, this was Jiang Xiaobai’s first time in the West area.

Little did he know, Jiang Xiaobai’s demon cultivator’s soul had followed Zhou Bin around the West area many times.

In fact, this place was similar in layout to the East area, just that the residences were noticeably more concentrated than in the East area.

“Xiaobai, you probably don’t know, but recently, things have been quite unusual!”

While Zhou Bin was feeding the beasts, he couldn’t help saying, “Normally, whether it’s the East or West area, the spirit beasts are quite fierce!”

“But starting a week ago, the spirit beasts here inexplicably became tame!”

Yes, he had been working at the Beast Spirit Land for over six years.

Every time he went to feed the spirit beasts, he would be frightened by their aggression.

In recent days, the spirit beasts became docile when he approached.

In all his six years, this was the first time he encountered such a situation, and it truly surprised him.

Jiang Xiaobai couldn’t help but snicker to himself.

This was because whenever Zhou Bin fed them, his ethereal soul would follow.

But of course, these were things he naturally couldn’t say, and he smiled back, “Maybe they’re getting used to you!”

“You don’t understand, these spirit beasts recognize their masters!”

Zhou Bin shook his head, doubting that was the reason.

After all these years, if it were just about familiarity, it definitely wouldn’t have waited until now, and if it were only one or two beasts that were different, it might be plausible, but for all the spirit beasts to suddenly change like this, it definitely wasn’t because of him.

The two chatted as they went their way through the West area feeding the spirit beasts and then came together to the East area.

When Jiang Xiaobai faced the wind lion beast like last time, he could see that it lowered its head upon seeing him, its gaze still carrying awe.

Jiang Xiaobai’s eyes showed a hint of surprise, and he couldn’t help but lightly pat the lion beast’s head.

Zhou Bin, watching by the side, couldn’t help but feel envious again.

An hour later, with the feeding in the East area finished, Zhou Bin smiled and said, “Xiaobai, before we go to the Medicinal Spirit Land, I’ll take you to a nice place first!”

“Oh?”

Jiang Xiaobai, curious at this, immediately nodded in agreement.

While leaving his demon cultivator’s soul behind, he closely followed Zhou Bin as they left the area.

As half an hour passed, the two gradually made their way towards the back mountains.

Following a distance into the forest, Jiang Xiaobai saw several wild fruit trees.

Red Patterned Fruit trees?

Jiang Xiaobai quickly thought of the name of these fruits, and his expression flickered.

He had seen many books in the Medicinal Spirit Land, so he recognized the trees.

Zhou Bin casually picked a few fruits and tossed them to Jiang Xiaobai, “Here, try these, these are good stuff!”

Jiang Xiaobai took a bite and found them crisp and sweet, his eyes showing surprise, “I must say, these fruits are really delicious!”

“They are delicious, but you can’t eat too many of them, no more than three per month. The reason being…”

Zhou Bin scratched his head as he said, “Elder Huang mentioned it a long time ago, but I’ve forgotten!”

“I know!”

Jiang Xiaobai looked at the Red Patterned Fruit and said, “The reason is that these fruits have mild toxicity. Eating a few can have a spirit-soothing effect, but eating too many will cause abdominal pain!”

“However, if this Red Patterned Fruit is combined with Rain Swallow Grass and Star Spirit Grass, the toxicity can be neutralized, and moreover, it can bring out the maximum spirit-soothing effect!”

After finishing, Jiang Xiaobai suddenly paused.

Then raising his head, he saw Zhou Bin staring at him in shock.
