All the disciples of the Shangguan Clan stood straight at the martial arts ground. It was completely silent. They looked at the swollen young lad’s face curiously. Was he the legendary son-in-law?
Uncle Qian was shocked too. He quickly put down the things on hands and rushed over. He knew better than anyone how precious it was to have Tang Tian’s guidance. Two years ago, Tang Tian was just a retainer who was cultivating the fundamental martial techniques. But right now, Tang Tian had become someone who was capable of defeating a strong martial artist like Yu Ming Qiu.
Uncle Qian worried that someone might not know what was good for them, so he wanted to set a strict order. To run their own school of thoughts, the Shangguan Clan was completely sorted out by Shangguan Qian Hui two years ago. Now, even if the Shangguan Clan was weak, it was motivated to look for a chance of survival.
Actually, Uncle Qian was worried that he did not know how many Shangguan disciples had witnessed the battle that Tang Tian defeated Yu Ming Qiu. Within a night, news of this frightening battle, had travelled through all the disciples of the Shangguan Clan.
Almost everyone knew that the son-in-law’s powers were great and profound.
Many even fantasized that, if Young Miss and son-in-law teamed up, then who could be the enemy of Immortal Constellation Mountain?
So when they heard that the son-in-law wanted to personally guide them in their cultivation, all the disciples were excited. They all fought happily. Everyone was looking forward to it.
Yu Ming Qiu, the ferocious character, was cleaned up by Ah Wei and Da Zhu, but in front of the son-in-law, it was not enough.
The first order of business Tang Tian set, was to for everyone to show off their martial techniques that they were familiar with.
“A bunch of garbage!” Bing scanned and said mercilessly.
Tang Tian did not mind: “Wait till you turn garbage into treasure. Godlike Uncle, there’s nothing so glorious as you being the chief military officer of the army!”
Actually, Tang Tian felt the disciples were not too bad. They were all at least level four, their foundations were strong and sturdy, and they were all young. It could be seen that Qian Hui had spent a lot of effort on choosing them.
Speaking of levels, there were many that were the same level as Tang Tian, but in terms of battle strength, he could not find a match.
“Today’s cultivation mission is very simple. I want each and everyone of you to familiarise yourself with your martial techniques by practising them three thousand times.”
As Tang Tian spoke on the state, the audience on the ground gasped. How was it possible to practice it three thousand times in a day? Absolutely impossible! Their standard were all level four. For a rank four martial technique, if they could practice it for seven to eight hundred times per day, it was already good enough. But three thousand times?
Three thousand times? You kidding?
There was a din amongst the disciples. Everyone looked in disbelief. They all felt Tang Tian was just bullshitting. Three thousand times, he sure knew how to boast.
Tang Tian ignored the gazes, his tone turned gloomy: “Why? Who disagrees?”
With quick thinking, Shangguan Wei stood up hurriedly and shouted: “Why are you still standing there? Start practising!”
With that, Tang Tian’s voice rose: “You two, five thousand times.”
Shangguan Wei’s knees went weak, while Shangguan Zhu started right away.
Tang Tian saw some of the people trying to cheat, he immediately mocked: “Three thousand times. I don’t care if you’re willing or not. Whoever does one time lesser, you’ll cultivate here until you’re finished. Don’t try to mess with me. If you want to be lazy, you’ve got to ask my fists.”
Suddenly, Tang Tian’s eyes turned cold. He noticed someone in the crowd was trying to be funny. Immediately, he silently shouted in glee. He was just thinking about making an example, and a possibility arose right in front of him.
With a leap, Tang Tian rose and appeared in front of the disciple.
Without waiting for the disciple’s explanation, Tang Tian grabbed him and smiled slyly: “You’re thinking of being lazy now, are you tired of living?!”
Without a second word, he lifted this disciple. Bang. he threw him towards the bricks of limestone.
With a scream, the disciple fainted!
Tang Tian lifted the unconscious disciple with disregard. He had controlled his strength extremely well. It seemed like a fatal throw, but in fact, it merely made the opponent faint from pain, but he would not get hurt.
“Grab a bucket of water, and freshen him up. Then continue practising.”
Tang Tian’s icy cold words instilled fear in everyone. Even Shangguan Wei and Shangguan Zhu felt it hard to swallow their saliva. Son-in-law was too ruthless.
Originally, they were still excited. Could it be this was what the son-in-law was referring to as the cultivation method?
Everyone started practising seriously. As to completing three thousand repetitions, they would not be able to complete it. Their thoughts were very simple. Anyway, they just had to practise this way. If everybody could not complete in time, would the son-in-law beat everyone up?
Tang Tian scanned through to make sure that no one was trying to be lazy so he started cultivating.
Once he was in the state of cultivation, Tang Tian forgot about everything else.
Tang Tian’s [Concussion Punch] was fierce enough, but he had not comprehended its killing technique. Although it could not be like the past, as long as he cultivated the fist, he could comprehend the killing technique. But Tang Tian’s cultivation method was still the same. He had the same thinking.
The quantity would then result in a change.
Tang Tian focused, one fist after another, without any laxity.
The disciples peeped at Tang Tian, who was focused. When they saw that Tang Tian was practising with them, they were even more curious and so they started peeping even more.
[Concussion Punch] was not a side door fist technique. Many disciples knew of it, but Tang Tian’s Concussion Punch was different from what they knew.
Perfect! It was an incredibly perfect Concussion Punch!
It was the first time they had witnessed such a perfect Concussion Punch. The disciples who majored in Concussion Punch were all infatuated.
One hour later, everyone was so tired. Several even fell to the ground.
Tang Tian, in his state, still did not show any signs of stopping.
“Son-in-law’s body endurance sure is tough!”
“To be able to cultivate [Concussion Punch] to this stage, he must have spent a lot of time!”
Everyone discussed as they took a break.
Two hours later, Tang Tian still did not stop. It could be seen that he had used up a great deal of his energy and he was sweating profusely,
The discussions were softer now. They looked at Tang Tian in awe and respect.
Three hours later, Tang Tian persevered. Underneath his feet was a puddle of water. It was formed by his sweat that was dripping down continuously. Every fist was steady, his gaze was so focused he could not take in anything else.
Everyone was silent at this point in time.
Five hours later, Tang Tian was almost exhausted. He sat down to meditate. Tang Tian placed everything at the back of his mind when he was in the state of cultivating.
Every single disciple was stunned by this scene.
Usually, when they cultivate, many would brag about their hard work, but when they saw how Tang Tian cultivated, they were greatly impacted. It was the first time they saw someone who gave their all in cultivating. That’s right, giving his all! As compared to Tang Tian, their cultivation…
Shangguan Wei and Shangguan Zhu were guilty as hell.
No wonder son-in-law is so powerful!
This thought appeared in everyone’s mind.
No one goofed off. Everyone started to cultivate silently. Was it impossible to do it three thousand times? If they cultivated like son-in-law, they could complete it!
Even the almighty son-in-law was so hardworking, so motivated. He gave his all, so what excuse did they have to be lazy? What other reasons could they give to back out?
In the eyes of every disciple was a blazing fire which quickly grew.
Tang Tian recovered his True Power. He opened his eyes to look at the unusually lively and passionate scene of the disciples cultivating. He was delighted. But in his eyes, he could not help but ask: “Bing, will this really work?”
“If I say so, it will work.” Bing said: “Take note, young lad, you don’t have the authority to question me!”
Tang Tian was suddenly embarrassed. After the fight, although Bing had agreed to the proposal, he proposed that on all cultivating issues, Tang Tian had to listen to Bing.
“Then, I’ll continue cultivating.” Tang Tian continued cultivating once he said that.
Bing observed the disciples that were cultivating on the ground. He looked proud.
Although these rascals had horrible powers, in fact, they had a good amount of will. Bing could accept rookies that were not powerful yet, but he could not stand those who had no will to fight.
Suddenly, Bing was curious about Shangguan Qian Hui. From the disciples below, he could see the standard they would achieve. Although Shangguan Qian Hui did not train soldiers, if she could tell, all these young lads admired their young patriarch.
Seeing all these motivated young lads, Bing started to think that Shangguan Qian Hui was not a simple woman!
The reason Bing agreed to Tang Tian’s request, was not because he was agitated. There was another reason; he wanted to take some burden off Tang Tian. Tang Tian and Shangguan Qian Hui would ultimately be walking the Heaven’s Road, and into the unknown. If the Shangguan Clan did not have the strength to defend themselves, then the two would leave with regrets.
Since that was the case, then he might as well solve it earlier.
It was lucky that a crazy rascal like Tang Tian was here. The others would be motivated by him.
He could then save some words.
“I can’t believe Tang Tian caused such a scene when he just arrived.” Liang Qiu raised his own cup and took a sip: “It’s a pity that Young Miss Qian Hui was out. What a coincidence.”
Han Bing Ning said coldly: “This boy is always so nasty.”
Sima Xiang Shan joked: “Shangguan Qian Hui isn’t here, so I’ll play with Tang Tian first. I’m looking forward to it. I never thought Tang Tian could become so strong…”
After hearing that, Ah Mo Li looked at him weirdly: “Eh, you never once thought of it?”
Sima Xiang Shan fell silent.
Ah Mo Li then stated with an odd face: “Eh, you really never thought of it! Weird! Fundamental Tang is a godlike young lad! It is normal for him to become stronger. But I, Ah Mo Li, will become stronger too! I want to meet Fundamental Tang quicker. I want to spar with him wholeheartedly and see whose improvement was greater!”
“The minister has said that we can’t move around freely.” Sima Xiang Shan was a party pooper.
“Eh!” Ah Mo Li then looked weirdly again: “Why are you so obedient?”
Sima Xiang Shan fell silent again.
Seeing Sima Xiang Shan being bullied, Han Bing Ning and Liang Qiu smirked.
“I want to find Fundamental Tang. Are you guys coming along?” Ah Mo Li raised his hands.
“Me!” Han Bing Ning replied fast and decisively.
“Mmhmm, me too. I’m very excited to meet Fundamental Tang.” Liang Qiu laughed as he said.
The three then turned to look at Sima Xiang Shan.
Sima Xiang Shan’s face twisted and, between the gaps of his teeth, he said: “Okay, fine. Let’s go!”
