Chapter 8: Gu Shuyao. 

After about five or six minutes, Yin Xiu stopped. The afterimages also disappeared.

Seeing this, the shock in the ponytail girl's eyes lessened. She took a deep breath and hesitated a little. But in the end, she finally couldn't help it and stepped forward, "Hey, you...who are you?"

Yin Xiu turned his head and looked around before asking with a slight smile, "Me?"

"Hmm (Yes)! Who are you?" The ponytail girl nodded affirmatively, she looked straight at Yin Xiu, and asked again.

"My name is Yin Xiu." The ponytail girl's serious look made Yin Xiu a little speechless, but he didn't turn her down and answered with his name indifferently.

"Yin Xiu?" The ponytail girl frowned slightly. She looked at Yin Xiu stupefied as if she was suspicious by his name.

"What's wrong? Is there anything wrong with my name?"

Yin Xiu smiled and looked at her.

The ponytail girl shook her head and replied, "No. Just that, there isn't a lot of people surnamed Yin."

"Ah, yes. Yin is indeed not a big/popular name." Yin Xiu nodded.

"By the way, my last name is Gu, full name is Gu Shuyao." The ponytail girl seemed to suddenly remember that she had not introduced herself yet, and immediately said her name.

"Well, hello!"

Yin Xiu friendly nodded to Gu Shuyao.

However, Gu Shuyao didn't care about such minor details and instead asked once more: "Your technique was really powerful, much more than mine is. I wonder which faction you learnt martial arts from."

Ah, it's Form-Intention Fist (Xing Yi Quan)."

Yin Xiu responded lightly.

When he was young, he did mainly practice Form-Intention Fist. And it was only later on, that he worshipped several masters one after another and practised other schools of martial arts... Basically, Yin Xiu's martial arts are from all major class handed down in China. 

"Form-Intention Fist?"

Gu Shuyao was a little surprised, she immediately asked: "How old are you? Are you also a student of Yinhai University?"

Yin Xiu could see that the girl in front of him has a straightforward temper, otherwise, she wouldn't be so direct and calm. There seems to be no such thing as 'being polite' in her dictionary.

"I'm not a student in this school. As for my age... Hehe, how old do you think I am?" Yin Xiu asked with a smile. He looked at Gu Shuyao vaguely with a bit of playfulness.

Gu Shuyao obviously didn't notice the hint of playfulness in Yin Xiu's tone. As after hearing what Yin Xiu said, she just looked up and down Yin Xiu carefully.

"Have you graduated from university already? Looks like you should be around twenty-four or five?" Gu Shuyao said in a tone of uncertainty.

Judging from his appearance, she felt that Yin Xiu was only twenty-four or five years old, a few years older than her.


Yin Xiu just smiled, not confirming nor denying. "How about you? How old are you? I think you should have been practising martial arts since childhood, right? You're pretty good." Yin Xiu turned the question at her.

Seeing that he didn't answer her, Gu Shuyao didn't know whether her guess was right or not. Personally, she feels that she should be 80-90 percent correct. After all, Yin Xiu didn’t deny it, did he?

Gu Shuyao would never have thought that Yin Xiu was actually an 'old monster' that's over a hundred years old. Only Yin Xiu's chuckle just now acquiesced to her guess.

So after Yin Xiu asked her back, her attention shifted.

"I'm twenty years old this year. Well, there are still three to four months before I actually turn twenty. I'm a sophomore. It's true that I practised martial arts since childhood, but compared to you, I am still far behind..."

Gu Shuyao responded.

"You don't have to belittle yourself. It's pretty good to be able to practice up to where you are now at your age. If you don't mind, you can try to circulate your dantian breath when you practice martial arts. There may be some unexpected effects..."

Yin Xiu said casually. As for whether Gu Shuyao will try it or not, it's up to her.

The so-called 'good luck' depends on whether one can grasp it. Yin Xiu, who has cultivated for many years, has a deep understanding of this.

Many opportunities in life are around, but most of them are just being passed by, with only a few of them being actually grasped.

If Gu Shuyao can grasp the opportunity he gave her this time, then she will undoubtedly go further on the road of martial arts and will be able to avoid many hurdles.

Although what Yin Xiu gave her was only a very brief sentence, if she followed suit, she would soon realize the tremendous help Yin Xiu's words brought to her.

"Circulate the dantian breath?"

Gu Shuyao muttered suspiciously and then looked at Yin Xiu. She couldn't help asking: "You mean to lift the breath from the dantian, and then let this breath follow along the body (which is circulate) when practising martial arts? Is it right to walk around with such dark energy in your body?"


Yin Xiu nodded in response.

Gu Shuyao has already developed dark energy in her body. Once she exerts her strength, dark energy would erupt and she can easily crush ordinary wood. As for dantian breath, it was not True Qi, it was just a breath of the dantian.

True Qi can only be possessed by breaking through cultivation levels. Gu Shuyao's current cultivation level is obviously far from the point of training Qi.

"What's the use of doing this?" Gu Shuyao asked straightforwardly. She really didn't quite understand the purpose of doing this.

Yin Xiu replied, "After you try it yourself, you will naturally understand the mystery."


Gu Shuyao was still a little suspicious.

At this time, Yin Xiu suddenly said: "Alright, I'll be leaving first, goodbye."

"Ah, oh, good... goodbye."

Gu Shuyao waved her hand subconsciously. She looked at the leaving back of Yin Xiu, she was still thinking about the method Yin Xiu told her.

"Ahhhh, no matter, let's just try. He doesn't look like he is lying to me anyway. What if the method he says is really amazing?"

"At most, if I feel something is wrong, I'll just stop right away. "

Thinking of this, Gu Shuyao no longer hesitated and immediately decided to try the method Yin Xiu just told her...

Yin Xiu did not leave Yinhai University immediately after saying goodbye to Gu Shuyao, and instead wandered around the university. Except for the cedar tree, nothing that Yin Xiu was familiar with, was found in this university.

Over the past eighty years, the changes have indeed been too great. The environment and things familiar to him have long been reduced to ruins, and then it has become the present university.

After spending more than half an hour strolling at Yinhai University, the sun in the sky gradually rose, and Yin Xiu finally left.

On the other side, after Gu Shuyao practised martial arts for half an hour according to Yin Xiu's instructions, she finally felt a slight difference.

The dark energy in her body increased significantly and much faster than usual, especially her whole body which gradually produced a certain rhythm. Her muscles were mobilized, and her movements became smoother. There was a hint of feeling like that of flowing water.

"It's really useful!"

Gu Shuyao showed a happy expression, "It seems that the person named Yin Xiu is really not ordinary. I don't know if he will come here tomorrow..."
