Tang San succeeded! He succeeded at the first attempt using the Guanyin’s Tear. His feeble body didn’t affect his mind. It was like when he had successfully fabricated the first piece of the Buddha’s Fury Tang Lotus in his previous world. The feelings in his heart now couldn’t be expressed with words. Even if he had to die at that moment, it was worth it! Tang San still remembered that in his previous world, even the Tang Sect’s Leader could only use the second rank hidden weapon, the Bodhisattva Blood once. No one could perform the Guanyin’s Tear. But Tang San did it well. Now he could confirm that he had reached to top peak of the Tang Sect.
Who said humans couldn’t hurt Gods? Didn’t the Guanyin’s Tear hurt a god? Even without the assistance of the Solid Golden Fly that doubled his attack power, Tang San was sure that Guanyin’s Tear could break Qian Ren Xue’s Angelic Protection. To describe the Guanyin’s Tear, there was only one sentence: “No matter how strong the defense is, never miss it!”
Just a simple sentence but it fully showed how tremendous the Guanyin’s Tear was.

 

Tang San really wanted to laugh out loud. However, he didn’t have enough strength to laugh now.

 

“The first rank hidden weapon of Tang Sect?”
The gold light appeared again on Qian Ren Xue’s body. The gold blood on her mouth had stopped. She was looking at Tang San with complicated emotions in her eyes. Although she got hurt severely, her power was still formidable. She was hesitating whether to violate the rule and kill him immediately.

 

“So, Tang Sect had a god’s inheritance? If not, how could you perform such a strike that even gods couldn’t hold? It must be a god’s inheritance!”

 

Qian Ren Xue muttered.

 

“No!”

 

Tang San said determinedly.

 

“It isn’t God power, but just human’s intelligence. It is the accumulation of all understandings of countless generations of the Tang Sect.”

 

Tang San’s pale face lit up with proud, making Qian Ren Xue dazed looking at him.
The faint gold light was moving on Qian Ren Xue’s body. Her face became more gloomy and undetermined. She had risen her hand several times, but she didn’t do it.
Taking a deep breath, looking at the dead incense not far from there, Qian Ren Xue determinedly said:

 

“You should go when I haven’t changed my mind! Run now! Three days, you have three days to run away as we had set the rules. I don’t need to recruit you anymore. After three days, I will chase after you with all my power as an Angelic God along with my holy weapons. You only have three days!”

 

Tang San was shaken. I won! I actually won! Not only did I win this game but also Qian Ren Xue’s heart. More importantly, if my predictions toward Qian Ren Xue’s attitude and behavior were wrong, I would be a dead body now.

 

“Thank you! In fact, you have had many chances to kill me, but still, you give me a chance. I don’t know why, but I know I’m lucky. Qian Ren Xue, if I defeat you one day, I will definitely spare your life once!”

 

Tang San calmly talked to Qian Ren Xue. His expression was honest. Although he was fragile now, looking at his complexion, Qian Ren Xue could feel the strong confidence and honesty in him.

 

“You have to think carefully about how to face my full murderous intention three days later! You are brilliant, can even be the most excellent control system spirit master that I have ever met. However, if you confront the absolute strength, no matter how smart your plan could be, it will still be useless. Human has limits, but God has none. Tang San, I’ve let you go twice, and you have taught me a lot. Facing an opponent, you shouldn’t give them any chance. I should thank you too!”
Tang San stolidly smiled:

 

“There’s something you are wrong about. God’s power is not boundless. It could be drained too. Next time we meet, I want to see your true god power. See you!”

 

“There’s something you are wrong about. God’s power is not boundless. It could be drained too. Next time we meet, I want to see your true god power. See you!”
Tang San glimpsed at the Sea God Trident pierced into the ground far from him, clenching his teeth. He knew he had no chance to take this divine weapon back. Qian Ren Xue wouldn’t let him take it. But he had drained all of his energy. Tang San turned back, hardly got himself together, tried to hold down the dizzy feeling then urged his Eight Spider Lances to run away.

 

If only I knew I would meet such tremendous opponent, I would ask Little Ao to produce more caterpillars and Solid Golden Fly!

 

Tang San gradually disappeared from Qian Ren Xue’s sight. After a while, she couldn’t hold it anymore, gushed out a mouthful of gold blood then directly sat on the ground. But, an eccentric smile flashed on her face.

 

“Tang San, oh, Tang San! You’re brilliant, but still, you’ve made mistakes. I believe that this is the first time you have ever used this skill. That’s why you didn’t know the true power of it. Yes, it has pierced through my heart, and broken it. If you had accumulated one more percent of your divine power, you could have me killed!”

 

The Guanyin’s Tear had pierced through her heart and exploded it. Her primary meridians there were mashed. Even if she was the god level spirit master, she didn’t have enough energy to launch another attack. Now she had to consolidate all of her god power at her heart to create a new heart to support her body. A God is formidable, but the heart is crucial. With her capacity now, it would take at least three days to heal her heart. She had acted to fool Tang San. She didn’t want him to know how severe her wound was. Only if you got stabbed by the Guanyin’s Tear, you could truly understand how terrifying it was. Qian Ren Xue believed that if she wasn’t a god, she couldn’t survive that strike. Anyhow, she determined not to give Tang San any other chance to perform such strike again. Guanyin’s Tear needs time to accumulate power. Next time I meet him, I have to wear the Angelic Armament.

 

“Thanks for letting me know!”

 

Tang San’s voice echoed from behind her right at this moment. Qian Ren Xue startled, turning around just to see Tang San, who was standing next to the Sea God Trident now. One of his hand clutched the Trident’s handle.

 

How could Tang San be willing to leave like that? The Sea God Trident was his best friend! That’s the glory of the Sea God. If I can keep my life but deny this glory, I will never be the Sea God.

 

After he got out of Qian Ren Xue’s sight, he had released the Vast Sea Protective Barrier, using the hiding ability to get back in hope to take his divine weapon back.
Right when Tang San reached the Sea God Trident, he overheard Qian Ren Xue’s muttering voice, couldn’t help but speak.

 

Qian Ren Xue looked at Tang San with astonishment in her eyes. He was a tough guy without the Sea God Trident. If he could take the Trident back, what would happen? Qian Ren Xue didn’t dare to think about that.

 

“You shouldn’t be incited, yes, you shouldn’t. A fractured heart is a huge matter. Use your divine power to heal it. You should know that even though you have enough power to kill me now, you couldn’t maintain. Even if you didn’t die, your wound could never be healed. Just go with the rules we have set. See you in three days!”
This was the first time Tang San smiled since he had met her in this forest. He looked at Qian Ren Xue, nodded then turned away. He looked so handsome right now.

 

The reason why he didn’t attack Qian Ren Xue wasn’t because he was feeble. He understood very well that Qian Ren Xue was still capable of killing him right now. That was why he remained calm and left.

 

Looking at Tang San’s shadow gradually disappeared, Qian Ren Xue almost spit out blood again. Seeing Tang San in the Star Dou Forest was the second time she had encountered him. He was weaker than her, but still, he could defeat her. Tang San was hurt badly, but still, she lost just like the first time they met! She didn’t want it to happen this way!

 

Three days, Tang San, I really want to know how far you can run in three days!
Clenching her teeth, Qian Ren Xue closed her eyes and started to cure her heart.

 

Tang San was pretty satisfied. He ate some sausages while flying out of the Star Dou Forest. His body was vulnerable now so he couldn’t fly fast. However, his self-curing ability had started to work after those Large Recover Sausages came into effect. Tang San believed that it wouldn’t take long to recover. He could do many things in three days.

 

Tang San held the Sea God Trident tighter. He never felt much affection to the Trident as he had now. Tang San swore to himself that no matter what problem he might encounter, he would never let off the Sea God Trident.

 

The Sea God Trident seemed to understand his thought; it poured a warm flow into his body. The self-curing ability from the Blue Silver Emperor’s right thigh spirit bone was enhanced boosting his recovery speed.

 

Tang San finally got out of the Star Dou Forest after ten hours. If he were in his normal condition, it would take him six hours to do that. If he could fly faster, it wouldn’t take much time. However, his condition was really bad. He had to put all of his effort to travel for ten hours.

 

Fortunately, after ten hours of traveling, his wounds were healed thirty or forty percent. Tang San was both joyful and dazed seeing his spirit power was leaping rapidly. Although he hadn’t been fully recovered, he could confirm that he had broken through level ninety-six, entering a new stage. They were just one level apart, but the spirit power of level ninety-six doubled the spirit power of level ninety-five!
His exploded spirit rings needed three days to recover. Also, these three days was the time Tang San had to run for his life. Now he knew his spirit power had advanced, the chance to escape Qian Ren Xue’s pursuit could be ensured more.

 

Apparently, Tang San didn’t think that he could defend Qian Ren Xue. He didn’t know what kind of divine weapon she had, but certainly, she had the Angelic Armament. That was the six god level spirit bones. The power they held was incredible. After Tang San had won that game, he determined not to encounter Qian Ren Xue again before he became a god. Qian Ren Xue had received many detriments from him; she would never give him any chance to survive.

 

After leaving Star Dou Forest, Tang San traveled for ten more li then stopped and started to cultivate. This place was outside of Qian Ren Xue’s divine sense. He didn’t want to waste everything he had done. His current speed couldn’t help him not to get killed three days later. There was still a long way from this place to the shore. He had to fully recover before arriving there within three days and meet up with his comrades. Once I could enter the vast ocean, it would be like a fish swimming in the sea. Even if she could find me, I would have more advantages fighting in the sea. It would be much better than the Star Dou Forest. If I get killed in the sea, I don’t deserve the Sea God’s inheritance!

 

Tang San sat down crossed legs. His old habit was to put the Sea God Trident next to him. But now he had to change it, putting the trident horizontally on his lap. He wanted to feel his old friend’s existence at any time.

 

Tang San closed his eyes, entering the cultivating state. He beamed a forced smile seeing the damage inside his body. If he didn’t count on the power of the god level Eight Spider Lances, the Blue Silver Emperor’s right thigh spirit bone and the Sea God Trident, he would go into a coma.

 

Today was the first time he had tried the Exploding Ring. He had fully enjoyed the power of this ability. However, now, he saw its side effects. First, it was the dwindling. The recovery speed of his spirit power was only one-fifth compared to his regular speed. The feeling of being feeble got on his nerves.

 

Without the spirit rings, his attributes were much reduced. This affected the recovery speed. At this moment, the primary meridians in Tang San’s body were severely damaged, worse than the time he had absorbed the spirit rings from the Thousand Catties Ants brothers. There were at least three out of five meridians that were damaged at different levels. He didn’t have enough spirit power now. The Wildfire Burns without End, Spring Wind Blows New Life’s effect was strong, but it was very slow.

 

Tang San carefully checked his body’s status then focused on his cultivation. But his heart was sinking. He knew that with his current condition, it would take a day and a half to recover fully. He couldn’t get to the shore within three days, even if he had to risk his life flying there. In other words, Qian Ren Xue could catch him. Although the hiding ability of the Vast Sea Protective Barrier was miraculous, Tang San understood that it was because Qian Ren Xue’s heart was hurt, she was too fragile to recognize him. But if she could reach him after three days, she would use all of her power and her holy weapon to kill him. He didn’t know if he could hide at that time. However, Tang San understood that Qian Ren Xue had her own way to track him down.

 

Although he knew it, he didn’t have any other choice but sit down and cultivate. He thought that the closer he got to the sea, the safer he could be.

 

Tang San was smart, but Qian Ren Xue forgot to mention his sound mind. Through two lives, actually, he was over fifty years old. His characteristics were more mature than his biological appearance.

 

After Grandmaster had accepted him as his disciple, the first thing he taught him was “cold and calm.” He was a control system disciple, if he couldn’t maintain a sound mind, he would never succeed.

 

That was why when Tang San was in danger, he became more cold and calm. Even if the Mount Tai were to collapse in front of him, he wouldn’t change his expression. That was how he could stop the furious storm and do things that ordinary human couldn’t do to create miracles.

 

Although the coming future wasn’t bright, Tang San was still calm, cultivating quietly. He was using all his ability to cure his body, recover one part by one part. He didn’t rush because he knew that he couldn’t make any mistake that could make him lose his last chance.

GOTCHA! HAHAHA. Tell me honestly how many of you got tricked?

[1] Guanyin: Guanyin or Guan Yin is an East Asian bodhisattva associated with compassion as venerated by Mahayana Buddhists. She is commonly known as the “Goddess of Mercy” in English. The Chinese name Guanyin is short for Guanshiyin, meaning “[The One Who] Perceives the Sounds of the World.”

P/s There’s an interesting article about this Goddess and “her” neutral appearance, also about “her” gender. GG if you want to know more ^^

  1. Today’s actually April 2nd…

    Jk I tried. Doesn’t help that the timestamp is right above my comment T-T

  2. I just remembered, guanyin is the goddes at songokong from journey to the west old chinese mythology movie right? One who always aid monk tong in his journey whenever he’s lost his way.
    Ah, how nostalgic.. Lol

      1. I see.. There also another movie foretold of monk tong before he began his journey to the west. I don’t know wether it’s a parody movie or what but the animation looked like kung fu hustle lol. Monk tong was once a god of war using songokong mystical staff. But banished by buddha cause he’s breaking a certain rule. He’s also had a romantic feeling toward guanyin in that movie. Probably that’s the reason she aid him in his quest as a monk. But she’s used to be a man?? Holysh-… Lol

  3. One and half days for recovery, more than 3 days to reach the shore while renxue need 3 days to recover her heart (then go to spirit city to fuse with angel spirit bones, and go to the shore). I don’t know how many days and how faster is renxue. Then tang san go to the sea, kill the whale, finish his test and become god (supposed to be, rigth? It’s not spoiler!), maybe he needs 3 months? I don’t know. So how about the war? It’d be complicated if renxue choose to secure the hill first

    *yuhao, pls don’t say anything haha

    Anyway, thank you for the chapter tomato 🙂 I thought it would be tomorrowe. I was refreshing my browser page to post my comment and then next chapter link just appeared! You got me haha

    1. Anything =D

      But seriously the conditions are those you stated, now we just have to wait and discover the bumps on the road

    2. And just to remind people, when he got to level 89 and got the trident the next part of his trials were to attach 8 rings to his hammer and a ninth one to the other, after that he needed to kill the whale while taking its ring to be the ninth one of his hammer and then try the god sucession trial, i dont clearly remenber if ressurecting xiao wu was part of the trial or not, but anyways thats it for what he needs to do and this was revealed before he left the Sea God Island

      1. Actually, his 8th trial was to revive Xiao Wu and get 6 spirit bones+ the lances and 18 spirit rings. Part of his 9th trial was to kill the whale, and that was mentioned in advance by Bo Saxi.

        1. “There’s one more thing you have to keep in mind, it’s your eighth trial. Raising your spirit to the nine ring level doesn’t just mean one spirit, it’s all your spirits. You’re different from ordinary spirit masters, you possess two spirits. Therefore, after resurrecting Xiao Wu, you will also have to find spirit rings to amplify your hammer as soon as possible. When you return, you must have twin nine ring spirits. This corresponds to the requirements for the eighth trial and counts as passing. Understand?”

          This is the part I get confused on, because she clearly said he needs to have nine rings on both spirits before he can complete the 8th trial. But then she goes on and says to save his last ring and spirit bone for the Demon Whale King, which is his 9th trial.

          “Bo Saixi smiled:
          “If I may give you a suggestion; your ninth trial will be to kill the Deep Sea Demon Whale King. Then don’t waste it. Let him become the last spirit ring of your hammer. He will also give you a spirit bone.”

          So he basically has to pass the 8th and 9th trial at the same time o.O Would’ve sucked if Bo Saixi hadn’t given him that heads up. Would’ve meant a 100k ring and spirit bone gone to waste lol
