Chapter 9: Yuan Tian Stage Two  
This chapter was edited by Chubby 
Because there was no sun, people started to lose their of sense of time. Even though clocks can show the exact date and time, how could anyone differentiate between daytime and nighttime in the darkness? Now, every second, and every minute, is nighttime. Since the Red Shell insects began to appear, people started to exclusively use the 24-hour clock, and scrapped the 12-hour clock to determine daytime and nighttime. The entrance door of building No. 8 was destroyed by the Red Shell insect. No one repaired it. Gradually, people started to move into building No. 8 from other blocks. At 20:00, Chu Yunsheng noticed while looking through the peephole that the landing area beside the stairs outside his flat was filled with people looking for shelter. It seemed that this building was the only safe place to stay. The landing area began to fill with more and more people. About 2 hours later, someone knocked on Chu Yunsheng’s door. Chu Yunsheng did not want to open the door. He could only take care of himself. The life and death battle he fought a few hours ago taught him that. If he wanted to survive in this place where the insects can come out at anytime, he needs to hurry up, and cultivates Yuan Qi. In just these two days, he understood a few more symbols on the book. He discovered that his Yuan Qi level is at “Yuan Tian stage one”. This level is just the beginner’s level. Not only could he not store a large amount of Yuan Qi in his body, but is also limited to a few Yuan Fu and incantations. He relied on Fu and incantations to save his life. He was not like other people who are self-awakening. Those people are extremely talented, although they are limited to have only one element such as ice, fire, or other elements. There are a lot of categories explained in the book. But they can use their power straight away without any medium, as if some kinds of incantations were already sealed inside their body. The ice punch man was a great example. Just an ordinary punch could unleash ice power. This is something Chu could not do. He belongs to a class which requires him to practice by using the original qi cultivation methods mentioned in the book. According to the book, if he could reach the Yuan Tian stage three, then he does not need those mediums. Later on, if he learned the combat skill sets that mentioned in the book, it will be much more powerful if he uses Yuan Fu and combat skill sets together. But for now, he still needs those Yuan Fu in order to unleash the power. On the plus side, he gets to experience different types of elements, and with the help of yuan fu, they are as powerful as self-awakening abilities. At the moment, he could barely make some level-two Yuan Fu. If he wants to make level-three Yuan Fu, then he has to reach Yuan Tian stage two as soon as possible. Level-three Yuan Fu can be repeatedly used. It is not like the low-level Yuan Fu that Chu Yunsheng has right now. Every time when the Yuan Qi inside wasn’t enough, he had to replace the Fu with a new one. According to the book, it is not complicated to reach Yuan Tian stage two from Yuan Tian stage one. All he needs to do is drain the Yuan Qi inside his body, then restore it. Repeating the process for eighty-one times allows Yuan Qi go through and strengthen the channels inside his body. After eighty-one times, he will reach Yuan Tian stage two automatically. But the way he was practising was too slow, like a snail. Apart from eating and sleeping, he used every single second he had to cultivate Yuan Qi, but his Yuan Qi’s concentration increased slowly. With this kind of speed, he needed to spend almost 8 or 9 days to fully restore his Yuan Qi. Not including the time he needs to drain the Yuan Qi inside his body, he would need to spend almost two years in order to get to Yuan Tian stage two. Two years? If it was in the age of light, of course, he would not mind at all. But now, the dangers are everywhere. He almost died when he tried to kill three Red Shell insects, what if he encountered 50 of them, just like what happened a few hours ago? He would not have a chance to escape. In two years, those monsters could kill him so many times. He had to find a better way to practice. Otherwise, even with this powerful, ancient book, he will be dead soon. He took out the book, and turned the pages back and forth, trying to learn something. He believed that there is definitely a better way mentioned in the book. It was just that he knew too few symbols. That is why he could not find it. “It must be there, it must be there.” Chu Yunsheng was trying so hard. He found a few things he thought could be related to Yuan Qi cultivation, but he failed every time. There was one incantation called “she yuan fu” (absorption yuan fu). Chu Yunsheng was not sure about the use of this Fu. He knew the meaning of those three symbols individually, but he could only read one-third of its description. Luckily he could read the symbols that explained how to make this Yuan Fu. This Yuan Fu is a level two Yuan Fu. He has to use all his Yuan Qi to make it. He already used half of his Yuan Qi while testing other Yuan Fu, even he wanted to make it now, he still needed to wait for another 4 days, until he fully restored his Yuan Qi. During these four days, when he felt tired, he would take out his crossbow, and practise his shooting skill. Yuan Qi is very important to him now, he could not afford to miss his target, and he needs to improve his accuracy. After four days of practice, and with the help of “six armour yuan fu”(refer DBA wiki), he was confident that he could hit a target within 30 meters, provided that the targets are not moving. After all, the ability to shoot moving objects can not be trained overnight, it is more important to have the experience. Four days later, he finally completed the “She Yuan Fu”, but when he tried to use it, there was a problem. No matter how Chu was tried to activate it, it would not absorb Yuan Qi. After struggling for a long time, he suddenly had an idea. Since the Yuan Fu cannot absorb the World Original Qi, what if he let it absorb the Yuan Qi that is already purified in his body? When he was just about to give it a try, he was frustrated to find out that the Yuan Qi inside his body was exhausted, and he could not test his hypothesis. Then he immediately thought of the Red Shell insect. That monster has a light red shield, which was definitely powered by the World Original Qi. It also meant that the Red Shell insect definitely had Yuan Qi inside its body. Chu Yunsheng quickly took out the monster’s body stored in the storage Yuan Fu, and started to activate the She Yuan Fu. As he expected, the Yuan Fu shot out a white beam at monster’s body. Then, he saw a streak of milky-like cloud that flew out of the Red Shell insect toward the She Yuan Fu. The process took him just 10 seconds, and the white beam returned to the She Yuan Fu after it completed the absorption. Chu Yunsheng took a close look at She Yuan Fu. There was a flame pattern on the surface of the Yuan Fu that covered ⅙ of its surface. Chu Yunsheng guessed that the flame pattern represented fire element Yuan Qi from the Red Shell insect. But when he just about to store the She (absorption) Yuan Fu, he was surprised to discover that as soon as he sensed the She Yuan Fu, the She Yuan Fu began to pass Yuan Qi directly into his body. Of course, he could stop it, but he did not. He wanted to see what would happen. The whole process was twice as slow as when it absorbed the Yuan Qi from the red shell insect, almost 20 seconds! After the flame pattern disappeared, the Yuan Fu fell to pieces. A level-two Yuan Fu is also a disposable Yuan Fu. But he was not upset when the Yuan Fu was destroyed, instead, he was excited and almost screamed out loud. He could clearly feel that he has restored one-third of his Yuan Qi. Usually, he would need three days to restore this amount of Yuan Qi. How could he not be excited right now? Some Yuan Qi from one Red Shell insect might be lost during transfer, but even then, the She Yuan Fu still restored ⅓ of his Yuan Qi. That means that if he had three monster bodies, he could fully restore his Yuan Qi, without needing to spend 8 or 9 days. Immediately, he developed a new plan, which he has been developing for a few days. He needs to make one She Yuan Fu first, then spend 8 days to restore his Yuan Qi. At the moment, he could shoot 6 frost arrows when his Yuan Qi was fully restored. That means that if he did not miss a target, he is able to freeze six monsters. While a monster is frozen, it cannot activate its shield, so Chu Yunsheng can find another way to kill it. Then, Chu could finally use She Yuan Fu to absorb Yuan Qi from six monsters. The She Yuan Fu Chu Yunsheng tested was a disposable Yuan Fu. It was destroyed because it unleashed all the Yuan Qi stored inside. Just like the other types of disposable Yuan Fu, once it is used, no matter how much Yuan Qi was withdrawn, it cannot be replenished again. Chu Yunsheng must maximise his She Yuan Fu usages. He has to use She Yuan Fu to absorb the Yuan Qi fully and then use it twice. Each time, it will restore his Yuan Qi fully. Theoretically, if he continues with this plan, he has to kill 243 red shell insects before he could reach Yuan Tian stage two. Then, he will be able to make level-three Yuan Fu, and he will not be needing those calculations anymore. This chapter was edited by Chubby
