Of course, Qin Tian did not dare to kill the sow now because it was an important livestock to the restaurant; it gave birth to two piglets annually which were used to make grilled pig. In killing it, Zhang Dafu would surely not let him go scot-free.
Now that he had a level up system, Qin Tian saw himself in a new light and thus, his heart could not help but feel excited.
“Young Master, have you broken through to second-ranked Warrior? You feel so different now,” Meng Lei questioned. The fact that Qin Tian’s Dantian was broken and was thus unable to cultivate was not news to him. However, he was certain that he felt a strong impetus within Qin Tian’s body, which was evident when a person had a breakthrough.
In Tianyuan continent, martial practice is essential in integrating Qigong into Dantian. If the Dantian were damaged, one would not be able to integrate Qigong as the Qigong would instantly vanish; it basically meant that one would not be able to breakthrough no matter how much effort was put into practicing.
This kind of phenomenon where the Dantian becomes damaged was very rare in Tianyuan continent where martial practice was common.
With enough qualifications and opportunities, even an ordinary person can become a ranked Warrior with enough cultivation. However, unlike those people, Qin Tian had to remain as a first-ranked Warrior due to his broken Dantian.
For five years, Qin Tian’s damaged Dantian had brought him a lot of suffering, but now, God had mercy by giving him a level up system. He did not have to depend on Dantian to have a breakthrough; just by killing monsters, he could level up and his Qigong value would increase permanently.
Now that his strength level had been raised to second-ranked Warrior, it was only just a matter of time before he would accumulate enough experience to break through to third-ranked Warrior.
“Practicing hard to integrate Qigong is useless for me now… I just have to focus on killing monsters and I’ll become strong from the experience obtained; just like playing a game…”
“I’ve spent my entire life playing games, so like many other games I’ve played, I shall certainly become the strongest person in this world!”
Looking around and confirming that no one else was around, Qin Tian gave Meng Lei a cautious smile and nodded slightly to signal that he had become a second-ranked Warrior.
Receiving the affirmative from Qin Tian, Meng Lei giggled happily; happier than when he himself had a breakthrough. These years of effort and suffering had finally paid off!
Meng Lei laughed and laughed, until tears of joy came flowing down his cheeks.
Qin Tian patted Meng Lei’s shoulder and asked, “It’s a happy thing. What’s there to cry about?”
The pain in his heart was finally relieved after hearing that Qin Tian was finally able to breakthrough. Wiping away his tears, Meng Lei answered, “No… I am happy… really happy,” before walking away.
Although the two had a master and servant relationship, but as brothers, they had been supporting each other mutually through the years and thus Meng Lei felt that his relationship with Qin Tian was something that the past him would never be able to understand.
If what he experienced just then was his breakthrough to second-ranked Warrior, it seemed that with each level up in his own gaming system, his martial rank would also follow suit.
“If that’s so, that’s just too cool; other people have to train so hard to cultivate and may face difficulties when breaking through. However, all I need to do is kill a few monsters and I’ll level up. This is so advantageous for me… ha ha ha… I’ll definitely become strong soon.” Qin Tian could not help but feel excited; the problem he had faced was finally resolved.
With the sun high in the sky, noon had arrived and people came flocking into the restaurant to eat.
In Qinghe City, there were more than a hundred restaurants such as Furong Restaurant. However, business still boomed to a point where there were almost no empty tables.
“Manager! Why is our food not served yet…?”
“Young man, give us the finest Zhu wine your restaurant can provide.”
“Damn! Why is my beef not out yet?”
Upstairs, downstairs, the restaurant was very busy and Qin Tian, draped with a white towel on his shoulder, was hastily walking around the restaurant with not a moments’ rest. The humble attitude that he carried made many of the customers very satisfied…
In the eyes of the society, he was yet another ‘Inferior’, and no one would feel sorry for the ‘Inferior’, or they themselves would lose their identity and their pride.
Of course, there were also a number of people who openly expressed their unhappiness towards him; such as Qin Kun, the number one bully.
“Everyone, let me tell you something! That kid there is the most useless member in our Qin clan; fifteen years old, and still stuck at first-ranked Warrior. Brother Wang, at what age did you reach first-ranked Warrior?”
“I was five when I reached first-ranked Warrior.”
“I was seven years old when I reached first-ranked Warrior.”
“Useless, did you hear that? You are a disgrace to the Qin clan and you still have the will to live? I would have killed myself if I were you. Ha ha ha ha ha…”
Laughter could be heard in the private room. Qin Tian lowered his head as if their taunts did not concern him.
The one who provided the opportunity for him to transmigrate was none other than Qin Kun, who was sitting right before his eyes. He was Qin clan’s big bully and the great elder’s son; known by many as a tyrant but also a genius to have reached seven-ranked Warrior at the age of sixteen. Qin Kun’s Qigong, compared to many other seven-ranked Warrior, was more vigorous.
He was the product of Qin clan’s careful grooming.
Seeing that Qin Tian had not reacted to his taunts, Qin Kun gave a cold glare.
A thick sputum landed on Qin Tian’s face. And Qin Kun said in a disdained way, “ Get out!”
Qin Tian, without rubbing the sputum from his face, clenched his teeth and walked out of the room before closing the door behind him.
Standing in front of the door, Qin Tian’s body trembled; not with fear, but with anger. This insult… he’ll never forget in his entire lifetime.
After wiping the sputum off his face, Qin Tian narrowed his eyes like a fox, and muttered, “Just you wait and see.”
“Young Master, did Qin Kun bully you again? I’ll get him for you.”
Meng Lei rushed towards the private room furiously.
Seeing the spittle on Qin Tian’s face, he could guess what just happened inside the room. It was not the first time Qin Kun publicly spit on Qin Tian’s face. Who can endure such an insult?
Steaming with anger, Meng Lei wanted to enter the room.
Qin Tian hugged Meng Lei and said, “You are no match for them. What he wants is a reason to beat you up and you rushing into the room would give him a reason to do so.”
Built with a strong physique but with a simple mind, Meng Lei was sometimes reckless when it came to Qin Tian.
“Young Master, let us report this incident to the patriarch.”
“The patriarch?” Qin Tian smiled a few times, not knowing whether Meng Lei was really silly, or just acting silly; why would the patriarch be bothered with this insignificant matter?
Would the patriarch want to offend the great elder because of him?
Moreover, Qin Kun is Qin clan’s most well-groomed member and is the pride of the clan; the youngest star of the clan. How would it be possible for the Qin clan to reprove him just because a useless member told on him?
Just simply impossible.
The world is different from his old world. In this world, society follows the law of the jungle; where the strong feed on the weak and power resolves anything.
Having escaped death, Qin Tian was well aware of this.
“I must become strong.”
