Chapter 239 Success
This time he drew at will, so he didn’t feel nervous.
Soon, the six ding-headed Stem-Branch pairs and six jia-headed Stem-Branch pairs charm were finished. At the moment of completion, Mu Yi felt the Qi in his body and his consciousness had blended together and entered the charm.
In seclusion, Mu Yi saw a giant soldier in golden armor. He looked very powerful and looked like a soldier from heaven coming down to earth. He was full of strong Qi. Then, the giant shrank into a rune and entered the six ding-headed Stem-Branch pairs and six jia-headed Stem-Branch pairs charm.
“I made it!”
It was intuition that at the moment when he saw the golden armor soldier, Mu Yi knew that he had made the six ding-headed Stem-Branch pairs and six jia-headed Stem-Branch pairs charm successfully, and he had more expectations for it in his heart. He suddenly felt dizzy and was kicked out of that thought.
“Oops!” Mu Yi ’s body swayed, but he caught himself as his head still felt dizzy. Then he realized that his mind and spirit had been exhausted. However, he had a sense of lightness, and his consciousness had never been more active.
His head seemed to be crammed with countless things, most of which were about magic figures, especially the six ding-headed Stem-Branch pairs and six jia-headed Stem-Branch pairs charm, even though he only succeeded once, that experience was firmly imprinted on his heart, and would never be forgotten.
It’s a pity that the moment was so short, Mu Yi thought. He had learned most of the Magic Figures recorded in The True Interpretation of Magic Figures. If it had lasted a little longer, he might have been able to draw the rejuvenation charm.
As for the three really powerful killing moves recorded in The True Interpretation of Magic Figures, they were still not accessible to Mu Yi, so he never tried them.
According to the records left by the old Taoist Priest, the minimum requirement for practicing those three kinds of Magic Figures was to reach the second difficult peak and open the seven mortal forms in the body and the level of Magic Figures needed to reach the third level.
Although he just made rapid progress in the unity of heaven and man, he only consolidated the second one, and there was still a long way to go to the third one. After all, he only knew the six ding-headed Stem-Branch pairs and six jia-headed Stem-Branch pairs charm, and there was also the most difficult one called the rejuvenation charm.
Therefore, Mu Yi didn’t have the right to be proud at all. He still needed to practice.
Thinking of this, Mu Yi ’s eyes fell on the six ding-headed Stem-Branch pairs and six jia-headed Stem-Branch pairs charm on the table. Compared with those in the past, the charm had a golden luster, looked bright and was full of inexplicable breath.
Mu Yi reached out to get the charm and felt it quietly. There was a rune hidden in it. That rune was the key to the success of this charm. With the continuous improvement of his cultivation, Mu Yi was more and more aware of the mystery of charms.
There were also runes in the Bamboo Tree of Life and the copper lantern, and there was a mysterious rune even in Nian Nuer’s eyebrow. These runes were similar to the mysteries of heaven and earth, or the text of heaven, which included all things.
A lot of things became clear once you entered the second level.
“Did you do it?” Mo Ruyan asked in surprise. She also knew that Mu Yi had a problem because he had been drawing the six ding-headed Stem-Branch pairs and six jia-headed Stem-Branch pairs charm all day. Unfortunately, she didn’t know any about it, so she couldn’t help Mu Yi at all. She still worried about Mu Yi every day.
Although she didn’t know what happened to Mu Yi just now, looking at the charms on the table and Mu Yi ’s expression, she found out the truth.
“Of course!” Mu Yi smiled. He was in a good mood at the moment, not only because of his success with the six ding-headed Stem-Branch pairs and six jia-headed Stem-Branch pairs charm but also because of his understanding of the unity of heaven and man and the Magic Figures.
Mu Yi still regretted that it had been such a short moment of entering into the unity of heaven and man. Otherwise, not only could he have drawn the rejuvenation charm, but he could have reached a higher proficiency with Yu’s Steps.
If someone knew Mu Yi ’s mind at the moment, he might have been so envious that he wanted to kill him. The unity of heaven was something that could only be touched after reaching the peak of the second difficulty because only when reaching the unity of heaven and man could the third difficulty be reached, which was also the key to the third difficulty.
However, Mu Yi entered this realm by coincidence. Although he was far away from mastering this realm, he believed that it would be easier to break through in the future after this experience.
Even if there were no benefits, it was still satisfying to learn how to draw the six ding-headed Stem-Branch pairs and six jia-headed Stem-Branch pairs charm.
Mu Yi expected a lot from this charm and wished he could try it immediately.
“Really? Congratulations!” Mo Ruyan was really surprised by Mu Yi. In her eyes, Mu Yi always had a mysterious aura. After all, cultivation and martial arts were two different ways, at least in the early period.
Mu Yi glanced at Mo Ruyan and said, “Congratulations, too.”
“Congratulations to me?” Mo Ruyan looked at Mu Yi puzzled because she didn’t understand why he said that.
“Congratulations, of course. If I am not mistaken, you’ve got a prototype of the gun path now, right? It will only take a while to warm up then you will become stronger naturally. At that time, you will naturally enter the first-class realm. Shouldn’t you be congratulated?” Mu Yi said. Although he had been in the unity of heaven and man just now, and most of his spirit was focused on the Magic Figures, it didn’t mean that he paid no attention to Mo Ruyan.
In particular, Mo Ruyan was so close to him that her changes couldn’t be concealed from him.
Hearing Mu Yi ’s words, Mo Ruyan exclaimed then closed her eyes to feel her state. She had been so focused on Mu Yi that she had not checked her own progress.
She checked it and smiled.
After a long time, Mo Ruyan opened her eyes. She stared at Mu Yi and thanked him sincerely. Without Mu Yi’s sparring practice and seeing Mu Yi’s improvement, it would have taken a long time to fully achieve this step.
Mu Yi had saved her at least one year. She was originally on the threshold, but for many people, if they want to cross the threshold, they couldn’t do it in one night. It would take years or even decades, so she thanked him sincerely.
“Although I helped you to break through to some degree, you wouldn’t have improved without your own cultivation, and you won’t improve further without more work. There are many opportunities around you, but you cannot grasp every one of them.” Mu Yi said casually. He was happy for Mo Ruyan. Although it was only a preliminary understanding, it was very helpful for her to improve her strength.
Mu Yi believed that within a month, she would be able to stand firm in the first-class realm.
It was a pity that there wasn’t that much time left for her to train. The time to open the tomb was coming. Mu Yi didn’t think Leng Yu would wait for them, and Mo Ruyan’s strength was barely enough to participate.
She could be Mu Yi’s helper, so he had made a decision that he would go with her and help her.
“But without you, I would have to spend more time training and there is already so little left,” Mo Ruyan said earnestly.
She believed that Mu Yi could understand her. Mu Yi did understand both the martial arts and cultivation aspects. It was not easy to keep up with either of them after starting out so late.
There were examples of deep cultivation with late coming success, but they were few and far between.
“The stronger you are, the more help you can be to me. While the understanding is fresh, go meditate and digest it. You can take this copper lamp with you. It may help you.”
Mu Yi handed the burning copper lamp to Mo Ruyan. Although it had not been tested, Mu Yi believed that it would be helpful to Mo Ruyan.
“Then I won’t stand on ceremony.” Mo Ruyan took the copper lamp. She knew that it was not a suitable time to be polite. After receiving the copper lamp, she went back to her room, blocking the flames with her hands all the way for fear that the copper lamp would suddenly go out.
She didn’t understand the copper lamp. Ordinary wind didn’t affect the copper lamp. When she was near the copper lamp, her understanding that was about to dissipate came back to her \, so she dared not to delay. When she entered the room, she immediately began to practice.
Mu Yi didn’t immediately test the six ding-headed Stem-Branch pairs and six jia-headed Stem-Branch pairs charm because his mind and spirits were exhausted. He needed to restore them first.
Although he did not have the copper lamp, it didn’t matter for Mu Yi’s recovery. After two hours, Mu Yi opened his eyes and took up the six ding-headed Stem-Branch pairs and six jia-headed Stem-Branch pairs charm and went outside. He wanted to know what was special about this charm that made it so difficult to draw.
