Soul Slayer Chronicle Chapter 96

Soul Slayer Chronicle

“Underestimate?”

Shi Shujin looked at the solemn-faced Confucian Sword Ancestor with confusion: “What do you mean by this?”

The Confedian Sword Ancestor, hearing Shi Shujin’s inquiry, deepened his solemn expression: “It’s just a speculation, I dare not confirm it lightly!”

“Oh Ancestor, please speak quickly!”

At this moment, Shi Shujin was anxious, almost driven to scratch his head in impatience.

“It’s that this senior, I’m afraid… may not be cultivating for the first time!”

The Confucian Sword Ancestor looked deeply at Shi Shujin as he spoke.

Almost as soon as his words fell, Shi Shujin understood why the Confucian Sword Ancestor was in such a state.

Because even he himself tensed up.

Gulp…

Cold sweat appeared on Shi Shujin’s forehead as he said to the Confucian Sword Ancestor: “Ancestor, such a joke is not to be made!”

That’s right, he understood the meaning of the Confucian Sword Ancestor.

Meaning to say, Jiang Xiaobai had already undergone cultivation reincarnation long ago.

Before that, Jiang Xiaobai’s practice was all about Confucianism.

Originally, Jiang Xiaobai could have ascended onto the path of Confucianism, but instead, he began to learn the ways of the Sword Dao and the Alchemy Dao.

Now, in one of these paths, he had reached the step of transforming from immortal to mortal, hence undergoing a second cultivation reincarnation!

If it were explained this way, it really made sense.

After all, upon his first successful reincarnation, Jiang Xiaobai had already left pure Confucian cultivation essence in his body.

But then, a problem also arose.

Jiang Xiaobai’s age, they feared, must have reached unimaginable lengths.

A thousand years, ten thousand years, perhaps even longer.

This… was truly an ancient and formidable being!

“A joke?”

The Confucian Sword Ancestor gave Shi Shujin a glance and said: “Otherwise, how would you explain your respectful treatment towards him with the immortal ink?”

Shi Shujin did not speak.

Because only this explanation made sense.

The Sword Hall became silent at this moment.

Eventually, the Confucian Sword Ancestor broke the silence: “Regardless, since this senior can stay at our Yunjian Sect, it is a great blessing for our sect!”

One moment ago, the Confucian Sword Ancestor was talking seriously.

The next second, all of a sudden, he could not help but burst into laughter: “Haha, wonderful, wonderful indeed!”

Shi Shujin could not deny it.

Indeed, having such a revered individual in their sect was a fortune.

“Ah, I wonder what kind of karma you cultivated in your past life, Ancestor!”

Caught up in his sigh, Shi Shujin was about to say something more when he suddenly slapped his forehead: “I was almost led astray by you!”

Saying so, Shi Shujin stared at the Confucian Sword Ancestor and said: “Ancestor, no matter what, you must give me an explanation today!”

“What explanation?”

The Confucian Sword Ancestor asked with a smile upon hearing Shi Shujin’s words.

“You’re being evasive and not pointing it out to me!”

Shi Shujin spoke, “If I end up offending this senior because of this, what should the consequences be?”

The Confucian Sword Ancestor looked at Shi Shujin with even thicker amusement: “Even if you offend, it was your first meeting with him, and that has nothing to do with me!”

“The second time, that is today, although I did not point it out earlier, I at least aroused your attention!”

“This…”

Shi Shujin hesitated, still wanting to say something.

“But, who lets me, the Ancestor, be happy today?”

Indeed, he understood Shi Shujin’s intentions, and thus he lifted his hand and took out an exquisite brocade box.

Shi Shujin’s eyes lit up, and he was about to approach, but the Confucian Sword Ancestor held down the brocade box: “Shujin, although this volume is just a copied version, you understand its value!”

“Therefore, I can only lend it to you for half a month!”

“Moreover, the Ancestor has a condition…”

“Speak, Ancestor!”

Shi Shujin was helpless.

It seemed that the purpose of his visit was already seen through by the Confucian Sword Ancestor.

“The matter of paying respect with immortal ink must not be reported to the academy!”

The Confucian Sword Ancestor looked at Shi Shujin and added: “Also, if this senior has any matter with you, report it to me at once!”

Shi Shujin looked at the box being held down by the old Ancestor and finally nodded: “Agreed!”

Only then did the Confucian Sword Ancestor’s hand, full of smiles, let go of the box.

After receiving the brocade box, Shi Shujin spoke with eager eyes: “Then I’ll head back now!”

The volume was authored by a powerful figure in the academy.

Even as a copy, it remained a treasured object pursued by the disciples.

He had long coveted the copy held by the Confucian Sword Ancestor, and now he could finally peruse it.

Watching the hurried figure of Shi Shujin leave, the smile on the Confucian Sword Ancestor’s face grew thicker.

Today, he was really happy.

However, the most important thing now was to accomplish the big task.

That was the spiritual seed.

At this, the Confucian Sword Ancestor also left.

On the other side.

Jiang Xiaobai was immersed in the world of spirit talismans, unable to extricate himself for a long time.

When he had finished reading the book in his hand and placed it down, he casually glanced out the window and found that it was already dark.

Did time pass that quickly?

Surprise flitted across Jiang Xiaobai’s face.

Unknowingly.

Glancing back, he had absorbed half a shelf of books.

Of course, this portion might seem insignificant to the whole library, but it had given him a preliminary understanding of spirit talismans.

Spirit talismans were divided into two types.

The first type, the immediate spirit talisman, could only be used by Confucian cultivators, being drawn with the finger as the brush and spirit as the ink, manifesting on the spot.

The second type, the paper spirit talisman, could also only be drawn by Confucian cultivators, but the difference was that any cultivator could activate them.

Moreover, these talismans were supported by the artist’s will.

The stronger the will, the stronger the talisman.

This will stemmed from the author’s name, or their title.

Regarding this, he already had some ideas.

His name on the Sword Monument was Taibai; these spirit talismans, he would also inscribe with ‘Taibai.’

And the book he had just read contained some basic techniques.

Just right, after returning to the Yunjian Sect, he could try it himself.

Of course, he would need talisman paper and ink.

This wasn’t difficult; he could go down and ask Shi Shujin for some.

Thinking this, Jiang Xiaobai once again glanced at the sky, drawing out the spirit of Confucian cultivation from within his body.

Originally, he thought that just like the spirit of Alchemy cultivation, the spirit of Confucian cultivation would also need to practice before picking up a book.

But to his surprise, when the spirit of Confucian cultivation took out a book, it did so with ease.

“Could it be related to the multiple inundations of Confucian Qi?”

Jiang Xiaobai was a little surprised.

He received the teachings of Han Shufeng, and then was saluted by the Confucian Sword Ancestor three times.

A total of four times of Confucian Qi consecration had strengthened the spirit of Confucian cultivation.

It seems that although the consecration with Confucian Qi was somewhat uncomfortable, it did bring many benefits.

With a smile, Jiang Xiaobai left the spirit of Confucian cultivation to continue learning and headed downstairs himself…
