Shen Changqing stood up, looked at Shi Qingsheng and said, "For the matter of the Government Office, I am not going to interfere too much. You can continue with how you dealt with the affairs after Zhao Fang's death."


"Thank you for your trust, My Lord!"


"But I also have a request. That is, all of the things in the inner hall residence has to be changed. During my status as the temporary Governor, I will live here."


"Lord Shen don't worry, I will immediately send someone to fix it!"


For Shen Changqing's request, Shi Qingsheng nodded in agreement.


Shen Changqing was the temporary Governor, so living inside the Government Office was not a problem.


Subsequently, Shi Qingsheng immediately sent people according to Shen Changqing's request.


In less than half a day's work, all of the things were finished.


"Lord Shen, please take a look. Is there anything else you want?" Shi Qingsheng stood to the side, bowing his head and asked.


"It's done well."


Looking at the new and fresh things around him, Shen Changqing nodded slightly.


"Does Lord Shen have any more orders?"


"No more for now, you can go and do your work."


"This humble servant will excuse himself!"  


The Government Office was divided into the outer and inner hall.


The outer hall was the place where cases were handled. There was also a prison cell underground, to facilitate the detention of prisoners. As for the inner hall, it was a residence.


The word "inner hall" was just a superficial name.


In fact, the inner hall was comparable to a small mansion. In addition to the meeting room, it had many rooms and it was equipped with a study.

  

Just that, because it was a government office, there were no servants or maids here.


"The place is big enough, the living space is also spacious. A City Governor's status is really not low!"


After looking around, Shen Changqing sighed.


In contrast to the place where he lived in the Demon Suppression Division, the latter was extremely shabby compared to this.

In the study.


Shen Changqing came here after getting familiar with the environment.


He still needed to digest the things he got from the Demon Suppression Division today.


The Clear Spirit Jade Pendant was an exception. He already knew that it's for keeping records. 

  

The records in the Clear Spirit Jade Pendant would serve as proof of completing the missions given by the Demon Suppression Division.


Once a Slayer was promoted to the Yellow Rank, he would need to complete a fixed amount of missions every year.


He would need to at least eliminate ten demons or monsters each year. 


Of course, since each mission was different and were in various locations. Like when Shen Changqing came to Lin'an City, the Demon Suppression Division would assign a mission that would offset the annual mission.

 

Take Shen Changqing for example. He used a lot of time travel to here, so the Demon Suppression Division let him guard Lin'an City to offset his mission for the next year. This could also be considered a great convenience for him.


Just that, relatively speaking, the mission of guarding Lin'an City was more difficult than the general mission.

 

In the end, the gains and losses will vary from person to person.


When promoted to the Red Black Rank Official Slayer, the annual mission will only require one to eliminate five demons or monsters.


But although the number of eliminations was reduced, the difficulty was raised.


The higher the rank, the number of eliminations required each year will lower. Inversely, the difficulty would get higher.


"I just need to guard the city!"


Shen Changqing sighed and then looked at the porcelain bottle.


Inside were Clear Meridian Pills.


Regarding what was a Clear Meridian Pill, he had not heard much about it. But in Jiang Fu's letter, it was explained.


Clear Meridian Pill!


As the name implies, it was mainly used to open one's meridians.


The transformation from the Qi Circulation Realm to the Innate Realm requires the opening of many meridians. Taking the Clear Meridian Pill can open the meridians and shorten the time Cultivator needed to advance to the Innate Realm.


"The Demon Suppression Division gave me the Clear Meridian Pill. Is it because they are worried that I am not strong enough?"


Shen Changqing wore an odd expression on his face.


The Clear Meridian Pill was indeed a treasure. At least for any Qi Circulation Realm Cultivator, it was hard to refuse such a thing.


Even an Innate Realm Cultivator would benefit from the Clear Meridian Pill, just that the effect would be a bit worse.


The reason being that no matter if one was at the Qi Circulation Realm or Innate Realm, it's necessary to open up the meridians.


Finally, Shen Changqing looked at the book that was neither too thin or too thick.


[Heavenly Martial Astral Qi]!


Just by hearing the name, it was very lofty.


At least it was much better than the [Thirteen Cross Practice] and the [Pure Yang Kung Fu].


The [Heavenly Martial Astral Qi] was indeed higher than the two, because it was the Martial Art from the second floor of the Library.


Turning over the [Heavenly Martial Astral Qi].


After simply looking at it twice, Shen Changqing's attention was instantly drawn in.


•×•×•×•


Unknowingly, it had gone from day to night.


Shen Changqing was still flipping through the [Heavenly Martial Astral Qi].

  

After a long time, he craned his neck a little.


He condensed Pure Yang True Qi on one finger and lit the oil lamp on the table, dispersing the darkness.

  

"The [Heavenly Martial Astral Qi] is worthy of being placed on the second floor. It's much more profound than even the [Pure Yang Kung Fu]!"


Shen Changqing sighed with emotion.


[Heavenly Martial Astral Qi] was also a Martial Art that condenses True Qi and opens up the meridians. But the difference was that it was much more advanced than the [Pure Yang Kung Fu].


The nine levels of [Pure Yang Kung Fu] stopped at the peak of Qi Circulation Realm.


But the 12 levels of the [Heavenly Martial Astral Qi] allows one to enter the Innate Realm.


In addition to that, the Cultivation methods of the [Heavenly Martial Astral Qi] and the [Pure Yang Kung Fu] were also very different.


One of the biggest differences was that how the two Martial Arts opened the meridians were not exactly the same.


As for how many meridians were in the human body, no one was clear about it 


Each Martial Art can open a different amount of meridians.

  

Let's say that to advance to the Innate Realm, one would need to open the eight odd meridians, the Ren and Du two Mai. All Cultivators in the Innate Realm will touch on this point.


But on top of this necessity, some Martial Arts will also involve other meridians.


The more meridians that were opened, the stronger the Cultivator.

  

A Martial Art was considered good or bad, depending on how many meridians it can open.


Obviously, the meridians involved in the [Heavenly Martial Astral Qi] were much more comprehensive than the [Pure Yang Kung Fu]. Except for a small part that overlaped with the [Pure Yang Kung Fu], most of them were not quite the same.


In other words, even though Shen Changqing had the [Pure Yang Kung Fu], he could cultivate the [Heavenly Martial Astral Qi] without any conflict between the two Martial Arts. 

  

Not only was there no conflict, on the contrary, because he would open more meridians, his strength would also increase to a certain extent.


"Originally, because the [Pure Yang Kung Fu] broke through the limit, I had no Martial Arts to Cultivate. Now, the [Heavenly Martial Astral Qi] fills that gap. A Martial Art that allows one to enter the Innate Realm is certainly not ordinary."


Looking at the book on the table, Shen Changqing urged his True Qi. Fire was then ignited.


The book was burned after reading it. That was also the request of the Demon Suppression Division.
