Library of Heaven is Path
1453 Bloodline Enhancemen
"Blood Reservoir?" Zhang Jiuxiao scratched his head in embarrassment upon hearing those words. "That's a place where only the core members of the Zhang Clan are allowed to enter. Someone like me isn't qualified to enter at all…"
The Zhang Clan's Blood Reservoir was a place of utmost importance. Only those whose bloodline had reached a certain level of purity would be allowed to enter the area and cultivate. People like him had no rights to enter at all.
"I'll bring you in," Zhang Xuan said.
If he wanted to raise Zhang Jiuxiao's cultivation from Saint 6-dan Grand Dominion realm to a level where he could subdue experts of Zhang Chun's level, normal training methods wouldn't work at all. After all, the other party didn't possess the Library of Heaven's Path and couldn't cultivate the Heaven's Path Divine Art. On the other hand, the cultivation of its simplified version took a significantly longer period of time.
Given so, there was only one last resort—using the Zhang Clan's Blood Reservoir to alter the flow of time!
With this, they would be able to increase the time on their hand by twelvefold, thus raising the possibility of success significantly.
"You'll bring me in?" Zhang Jiuxiao was taken aback. "Aren't there seals and formations preventing unauthorized personnel from entering?"
If everyone could enter the Blood Reservoir of the Zhang Clan so easily, the Zhang Clan would probably have been destroyed a long time ago!
Considering how his teacher was an outsider who had just arrived in the Zhang Clan, how could he possibly be able to enter the Blood Reservoir, let alone bring him in?
"I might have no way to enter it if it had been a while ago, but right now, it isn't a problem anymore!" Zhang Xuan harrumphed.
Previously, when Zhang Wuchen led him in, he had taken a close look at the formation. Despite its ingenuity, it was still exposed to be riddled with flaws under the discerning gaze of the Library of Heaven's Path. Just using any single one of those flaws was enough for him to sneak in without catching anyone's notice.
Without much explanation, Zhang Xuan led the way forward.
It didn't take too long for them to arrive before the entrance of the Blood Reservoir once more.
"This is the place!" Taking in a deep breath, Zhang Xuan circled around the entrance before stopping at a certain spot and tapping lightly on the formation before him.
There was a slight buzz, and the massive gates sealing the Blood Reservoir slowly opened. At the same time, a small opening appeared in the entrance formation as well.
"Hurry up and enter!" Zhang Xuan quickly walked in, and Zhang Jiuxiao followed closely behind him.
The formation quickly closed up once more, and from the outside, it was impossible to tell that someone had been here.
"This is the Blood Reservoir?" As soon as Zhang Jiuxiao stepped in, he immediately felt his cells trembling in excitement and his Primordial Spirit shaking non-stop.
"Not bad. Try activating your bloodline and see if you can harmonize with the Time Quintessence in here," Zhang Xuan instructed.
"Yes, teacher!" Zhang Jiuxiao nodded before swiftly sitting on the ground to meditate. He activated his bloodline and attempted to forge a connection with the surrounding Time Quintessence.
But soon, he stood up with an awful look on his face.
Till this instant, he finally understood why those of the side family like him wasn't allowed to enter the Blood Reservoir. It wasn't that the Zhang Clan was miserly and was discriminating against them but that... their bloodline was simply too thin!
Even if they were to enter the Blood Reservoir, they would still be unable to fuse together with the Time Quintessence and cultivate like the inner clan members.
And since they couldn't do it, there was no point for them to waste their time coming here either.
"Teacher…" Zhang Jiuxiao looked at his teacher with a look of guilt on his face.
His teacher had gone through all the trouble of bringing him here, but in the end, due to his own problems, he was unable to trigger the Blood Reservoir. Even though this was something which he couldn't control either, he felt like he had let his teacher down.
"Calm down." Seeing that Zhang Jiuxiao was unable to forge a link with the Time Quintessence, Zhang Xuan frowned. "For the time being, you should carry on cultivating first. I'll think of a solution."
"Yes, teacher!" Zhang Jiuxiao closed his eyes and began cultivating.
On the other hand, Zhang Xuan activated his Eye of Insight and began scanning the area.
Beautiful flowing currents reminiscent of rainbows could be seen all around him, but as if oil floating on top of water, Zhang Jiuxiao was simply unable to immerse himself within it no matter how he tried to activate his bloodline.
"It's due the lacking purity of his bloodline…" Zhang Xuan frowned.
The Time Quintessence in the Blood Reservoir was left behind by the founder of the Zhang Clan as a gift to his descendants. While Zhang Jiuxiao possessed the Zhang Clan's bloodline too, it was so thin that he couldn't even activate its ability. As a result, the most he could do was only to draw the rainbow toward himself, but immersing himself completely into it was far beyond his means.
"If only his bloodline is a little purer…" Zhang Xuan couldn't help but think.
In the midst of his lamentation, his Library of Heaven's Path abruptly jolted. Following which, a golden page materialized before his eyes before flying forth with a resounding whistle, heading straight for the cultivating Zhang Jiuxiao.
"Shit…" Zhang Xuan narrowed his eyes in shock.
The Book of Heaven's Path was a weapon which even 9-star poison masters were completely helpless before. Given Zhang Jiuxiao's current strength, there was no way he would be able to withstand it!
He hadn't thought of killing anyone, so why would it fly out all of a sudden?
Zhang Xuan tried to stop the golden page, but it was already too late. It dived right toward Zhang Jiuxiao's glabella, but instead of smashing him into meat paste, it slipped into his mind instead.
Following which, he clearly saw the surrounding Time Quintessence bubbling furiously, gushing toward the meditating young man in the fastest time possible.
"Is this... Bloodline Enhancement?" Zhang Xuan widened his eyes, clearly shocked by the effects produced.
It was just a moment ago that he wished for Zhang Jiuxiao's bloodline to be purified when the golden page suddenly flew forward... Could it be that other than rising his Soul Depth, assimilate the content of the books in the Library of Heaven's Path for his own, sealing Vicious, and crushing others to death, it had the ability to enhance one's bloodline too?
If that was the truth, it would be truly fearsome!
One must know that he had studied unique bloodlines several times, but even with the help of the Library of Heaven's Path, he was still unable to find a feasible way to purify them. Who could have thought that the golden page would actually wield such a capability?
"Teacher, my bloodline…"
At this moment, Zhang Jiuxiao had also sensed the changes ongoing in his body, and he trembled in agitation despite not being too sure what was going on.
"I have helped you purified your bloodline. Here are some pinnacle spirit stones. Use them and quickly make a breakthrough!" Zhang Xuan said as he flicked his wrist and tossed over all three of the pinnacle spirit stones he had left.
Even though he had taken Zhang Jiuxiao as his direct disciple, he still didn't feel too comfortable speaking about the golden page before him. Thus, he decided to simply circumvent the topic altogether.
"Yes, teacher!" While Zhang Jiuxiao had no idea how his teacher managed to do it, he knew that this wasn't the time to be asking about it.
Grabbing one of the pinnacle spirit stones tightly in his hand, he closed his eyes and began furiously absorbing the spiritual energy inside.
Hong long long!
Due to the enhancement in his bloodline, the rate at which he absorbed spiritual energy became much faster than before. All of the meridians which had been blocked previously swiftly cleared up, and it almost seemed as if cultivation bottlenecks was a concept that didn't apply to him.
In the blink of an eye, he had already successfully reinforced his recent breakthrough to Grand Dominion realm.
Knowing that Zhang Jiuxiao had stopped due to the lack of a suitable cultivation technique, Zhang Xuan swiftly tapped his finger and imparted to him a simplified version of the Grand Dominion realm Heaven's Path Divine Art.
With the enhancement in the purity of his bloodline, Zhang Jiuxiao was finally able to draw the surrounding Time Quintessence into his body, and he used this twelvefold slowdown in time to comprehend the cultivation technique he had just been imparted with.
It didn't take him too long to fully grasp it.
At this point, Zhang Jiuxiao was intending to break out of the unique state he was in to make the breakthrough in his cultivation, but Zhang Xuan stopped him. Instead, he imparted to him a simplified version of the Saint 7-dan Phantasmal Space realm Heaven's Path Divine Art as well.
While this cultivation technique had yet to reach the level of a true Heaven's Path cultivation technique yet, it only had a single flaw. Even though it was difficult for Zhang Xuan to swallow, to Zhang Jiuxiao, it could already be considered as an incomparably ingenious cultivation technique.
Still, this single flaw made the simplified Heaven's Path Divine Art derived from it needlessly more complex than it should be, thus making it significantly more difficult to comprehend.
