A new student dared to tell her to not be arrogant. As a "female devil", how could Huang Yanchen stand for that?

"Zhang Ruochen, do you dare to repeat that? You don't think I'll break both your legs and have you thrown out?" Huang Yanchen extended her five fingers. Threads of Genuine Qi began to converge between them, and a small whirlwind formed in her palm.

Zhang Ruochen remained calm and said softly, "Sister Huang won't need to do anything. I'm leaving now."

Having said that, Zhang Ruochen headed to Earth No.1 and began to pack, preparing to move. He did not want to stay in the Dragon Martial Temple anymore. Huang Yanchen was entirely illogical. Staying with her had made Zhang Ruochen feel unsafe, as if his life could be threatened at any moment.

Whoever married her in the future would be damned for eight lifetimes.

"Junior apprentice brother, Sister Chen is just joking with you. Please don't take it to heart." Duanmu Xingling caught up to and stood next to Zhang Ruochen. Narrowing her eyes, she revealed a stunning smile.

"Really?" Zhang Ruochen glanced at Huang Yanchen.

Huang Yanchen stood pencil-straight in the distance. She worked to control her anger and squeezed out a smile, "Of course I was only joking."

"OK then! For Sister Duanmu's sake, I can teach you to practice the Shadow of the Royal Wind Dragon. But whether or not you can practice it successfully depends on your talent."

Zhang Ruochen wrote down the spell for the Shadow of the Royal Wind Dragon, and handed it to Huang Yanchen and Duanmu Xingling. "Now, I can only give you the spell. As for the steps, it's impossible for me to draw its essence at my current cultivation. I can only practice and teach you at the same time."

Zhang Ruochen spoke the truth. Although he was once a warrior at the Completion of the Heaven Realm, he could only draw out the essence of martial techniques that were up to the low-class Spiritual Stage.

The Shadow of the Royal Wind Dragon was a superior-class Spiritual Stage martial technique. Given his understanding of the martial technique, even if he managed to draw the steps, they would only have 10-20% of the essence. Practicing with those steps, Huang Yanchen and Duanmu Xingling would not be able to successfully practice the technique.

Huang Yanchen and Duanmu Xingling took the written spell and read it together. In the beginning, they were very focused, but the more they read, the more shocked they became.

Having finished reading the spell, Huang Yanchen's gaze was like two ice swords. She stared hard at Zhang Ruochen and said, "The spell is extremely exquisite. It is definitely not as simple as a low-class Spiritual Stage martial technique. Exactly what class of martial technique is this Shadow of the Royal Wind Dragon?"

"Can't say."

Zhang Ruochen spoke again, "If you want to learn, then I will teach you sincerely. If you don't want to learn, please go back!"

"We will learn! Who says that they're not learning? I am definitely going to learn!" Duanmu Xingling naturally saw how powerful the Shadow of the Royal Wind Dragon was. Even if she only partially succeeded, it would greatly increase her power in battle.

Huang Yanchen's look was unsettled, "Xingling, you memorized the spell, right?"

"Of course I remembered it. Sister Chen, did you forget that if your Spiritual Power reaches level 20, you will remember everything you see?" Duanmu Xingling smiled and replied.

Huang Yanchen nodded and ripped the spell into pieces.

She was very aware of the price of the Shadow of the Royal Wind Dragon. If someone else were to see it, it would certainly bring them no end of trouble.

Afterward, Zhang Ruochen demonstrated the nine steps of the technique for them, and then explained the 81 different changes.

Because Huang Yanchen and Duanmu Xingling were both top prodigies, they were able to very quickly grasp the basics and learn through analogy, and they quickly began practicing.

Zhang Ruochen practiced along with them and was clearly practicing faster.

After night had fallen, Zhang Ruochen returned to Earth No.1, but Huang Yanchen and Duanmu Xingling continued to practice the technique in the courtyard. They were no less obsessed with this martial technique than Zhang Ruochen was.

Zhang Ruochen had only just reached the Dawn State of the Black Realm, so his Martial Arts realm was comparatively low. He needed to spend a great deal of time practicing his Genuine Qi, and could only spend a limited time practicing martial techniques.

Huang Yanchen and Duanmu Xingling had already reached the Completion of the Black Realm, and so they could spend all of their time practicing martial techniques. This was their advantage!

After returning to the training room, Zhang Ruochen entered the Time and Space Spinel. He consumed a Triple-purity Genuine Qi Pill, and began to absorb it.

He was not lacking in pills and could eat them like candy. As long as they increased his practicing speed it was fine.

After practicing for a day inside the Time and Space Spinel, Zhang Ruochen absorbed 18 Triple-purity Genuine Qi Pills and could clearly feel that the Genuine Qi in his Qi Lake had substantially increased. He had finally consolidated the Dawn State of the Black Realm.

When he exited the Time and Space Spinel, it just happened to be the dawn of the next day. He saw that Huang Yanchen and Duanmu Xingling were still practicing in the courtyard.

Zhang Ruochen looked into the distance and could only see two elegant shadows moving back and forth. Their footwork was elegant and the wind sounded like a dragon's roar as they moved at an astonishing speed.

They lived up to their names of masters of the Profound Board. With just a day and night of practice, they had managed to get a feel for the Shadow of the Royal Wind Dragon. They were almost in the Beginner Realm.

Their current steps were only similar to the Shadow of the Royal Dragon. Only when they achieved Resemblance in Spirit would they be at the level of the Beginner Realm.

Beginner, Small Success, Succeed, and the Perfection of Martial Arts-all martial techniques had these four realms.

Between the two of them, Huang Yanchen was clearly faster than Duanmu Xingling. In at most another day, she would reach the Beginner Realm.

It was to her advantage that she opened a Gale Sacred Mark. The Genuine Qi in her body was of wind nature. Her physical quality and Genuine Qi were both highly compatible with the Shadow of the Royal Wind Dragon, and so her practice was obviously quicker.

"Whew!"

Duanmu Xingling flew over to Zhang Ruochen's side. She used her sleeve to gently wipe the fine sweat on her forehead and said radiantly, "Junior apprentice brother, Sister Huang and I had a discussion. We think it is more suitable to practice this technique in the wild where there is wind. Dragon Martial Temple is all flat ground and there is very little breeze. It is not suitable for practicing this high-level martial technique."

Zhang Ruochen nodded and asked, "So, what do you plan to do?"

Duanmu Xingling replied, "There is a valley in Omen Ridge called Devil's Wind Valley. Hurricanes are common there and it's the perfect place to practice the Shadow of the Royal Wind Dragon. Would you like to come with us?"

Zhang Ruochen asked, "How far is that valley from the Western Campus?"

Huang Yanchen walked over and said, "Devil's Wind Valley is about 200 kilometers away. Given our speed, if we rush the whole way, we could be there in an hour. We are just unsure if you can keep up with us."

Zhang Ruochen smiled and said, "My cultivation has already reached the Dawn State. Although that is still some distance away from you, I shouldn't hold you back."

"You just broke into the Advanced Stage of the Black Realm, how could you have already reached the Dawn State?" Duanmu Xingling had some disbelief as she looked at Zhang Ruochen with doubt.

Huang Yanchen said, "He received 10 drops of Half-Holy Water. Given his absorption speed of Half-Holy Water, it shouldn't have been a difficult matter to reach the Dawn State in such a short time.

"Half-Holy Water is, after all, a treasure that is very efficient for refining the body and increasing the size of one's Qi Lake. In the lower realms, it has very obvious effects on cultivation. Following the development of one's cultivation, the efficiency of Half-Holy Water to increase cultivation gets weaker."

Zhang Ruochen agreed with Huang Yanchen's words. When he was in the Advanced State, he absorbed three drops of Half-Holy Water to reach the Dawn State.

Although he still had eight drops of Half-Holy Water, it would not be enough to reach the Medium State.

So, he planned to use other pills first to practice the Genuine Qi in his Qi Lake to completion, and then take the eight drops of Half-Holy Water to break through to the Medium State.

That was not to say that Half-Holy Water was not powerful medicine, as the main purpose of Half-Holy Water was not to increase cultivation.

"Senior apprentice sisters, I will go back and pack some things." Zhang Ruochen thought about Blackie and was not at ease about leaving him alone in the Western Campus. If there was no one to control him, who knew what trouble he would cause?

"We'll wait for you outside of the main gates of the school. You'd best be quick," Huang Yanchen said.

Zhang Ruochen returned to Earth No.1 and opened the study door. As expected, he saw Blackie sitting on a chair, intently reading a book.

"Blackie, I'm going to Omen Ridge to practice. You must come with me," Zhang Ruochen said.

"OK! I also want to tame a familiar, if I could tame a rosefinch, that would be good! It's a pity that my cultivation is locked in the Yin-Yang Wooden Glyph. There's no way I can tame a rosefinch, I can only tame some lower level savage beasts... Hmm... I guess I'll wait to do that!" Blackie jumped down from the chair, clasped his book, and walked with Zhang Ruochen toward the outside of the Western Campus.

Zhang Ruochen and Blackie had just left the Western Campus when the news reached the ears of Prince Huo Xing.

"You're sure that Zhang Ruochen left the Western Campus alone?" Prince Huo Xing suddenly stood up, and his eyes glittered with cold murderous intent.

A student thought and replied, "With a cat!"

"It's not necessary to report about a cat!" Prince Huo Xing's face revealed a cold smile, and said to himself, "Zhang Ruochen, ah, Zhang Ruochen! You don't take the path to heaven, but beat against the doors of hell. While you remained in the Western Campus, I could not act against you. But now that you have left, death is the only end that awaits you. This time, I will personally kill you."

The student was a little doubtful and said, "Even Feng Zhilin died at the hands of Zhang Ruochen. Given Your Majesty's cultivation, you probably can't kill him."

"Idiot!"

Prince Huo Xing glared at him and said, "Do you think that I will strike personally? The Square Commandery has 400,000 troops stationed around Omen Ridge. I only need to go into one of the camps and choose an elite warrior. To them, killing Zhang Ruochen would be like shooting fish in a barrel."

Not long after Zhang Ruochen had left the Western Campus, Prince Huo Xing also left. He headed toward a battalion that was camped a few hundred kilometers away.

"Senior apprentice sisters! Let's head out now!"

Zhang Ruochen saw Duanmu Xingling and Huang Yanchen on a mountain outside of the Western Campus.
