Zero to hero in the martial arts library – Chapter 90

Chapter 90: Higher Floors of the Library

The two of them leaned against the window, speechless.

After about ten minutes, the two of them walked out of the hotel.

Qin Yuyan said quietly,

“When she went in just now, she seemed to be wearing black stockings, but they’re gone now.”

Ye Xiao nodded.

“Her knees are also red.”

“I don’t want to meet him anymore.”

“I don’t want to see her either.”

“Then let’s go.”

Qin Yuyan said faintly, and Ye Xiao nodded again.

The two of them quickly left the breakfast shop and came to the main street. The air was much better.

Qin Yuyan took a deep breath, and her mood was much better.

“Are you going home now?”

Ye Xiao shook his head.

“I’m going to the library to read.”

Qin Yuyan could not help but feel a little surprised.

“When you work in the library every day, aren’t you always reading? Why do you need to read even when you’re on vacation?”

Ye Xiao said calmly,

“There’s nothing to do. What’s the point of not reading?”

“Uh… Is there anything special about reading? For example, does it have any effect on martial arts cultivation?”

“There should be. Isn’t there a saying that goes, ‘Reading more than 10,000 books and cultivating is like having a god!’”

“Is there such a saying?”

Qin Yuyan could not help but frown slightly. Why did she feel that that saying was not said in that way?

However, it was also possible that she had remembered wrongly.

“Since that’s the case, then I’ll go back.”

Ye Xiao did not urge her to stay either.

“Alright, goodbye.”

After saying those words, he turned around and left. Huan Liuli lay on his shoulder and waved her little claws at Qin Yuyan.

Qin Yuyan smiled and waved her little hands as well before turning around and leaving.

That small interlude did not affect Ye Xiao’s mood.

He did not want to go on a blind date, to begin with. He could not be bothered about what the other party did.

What he cared about was going to the library to find artifact-refining cultivation techniques and to properly learn about refining.

However, the search for armament-refining techniques did not go very smoothly.

There were many books in the library that recorded armament-refining, but there were not many types.

Ye Xiao would read one from time to time in the past, but up until now, the divine soul’s Golden Book had only collected a total of five books.

With that amount, it was estimated that there were still quite a few types of books to be synthesized.

Close to noon, Director Ouyang walked over with a displeased expression.

“Ye Xiao, why did you leave by yourself this morning? Linlin said that she couldn’t find you no matter how hard she looked.”

Ye Xiao closed the book and said with an indifferent expression,

“When I went over this morning, I bumped into Miss Qin Yuyan. She also went on a blind date, and then she and I saw your niece Linlin and her blind date enter the hotel. If you don’t believe me, you can call Miss Qin and ask her about it.”

Ouyang Yunzhong’s old face instantly darkened.

“Did that really happen?”

Ye Xiao nodded.

“I have no need to lie to you.”

He carefully stared at Ye Xiao. Seeing that he did not seem to be lying, her expression eased up and she apologized to Ye Xiao.

“I’m sorry, Ye Xiao. I didn’t expect such a thing to happen. It’s my fault.”

Ye Xiao shook his head.

“Director, you don’t have to blame yourself. After all, she’s only your niece. You didn’t raise her by yourself. It’s understandable that you don’t know her background.”

“No matter what, this is all my fault. How about this? I still have a membership card for the Flower Theatre breakfast. There’s still some money inside. Just treat it as some compensation for you.”

Ouyang Yunzhong did not say anything and stuffed a card into Ye Xiao’s pocket.

After that, her gaze landed on the book that Ye Xiao was reading and she could not help but exclaim softly,

“Eh, are you looking at the armament-refining technique?”

“Yes, I’ve been quite interested in this recently.”

“Learning the armament-refining technique is pretty good too. Your cultivation is relatively low and you have yet to awaken your divine soul. It’s not suitable for you to cultivate battle techniques. However, if you can cultivate the armament-refining technique, or the pill-refining technique, as well as the healing technique, you will have many better employment options even if you leave the library in the future.”

Ouyang Yunzhong picked up the book.

“This art of armament refinement is only at the ordinary level. Armament refinement is relatively widespread, but high-level techniques have always been mastered in very few places.

“Our library has a relatively small collection of books. If we were in the Shaolin Martial Arts Academy, we would definitely be able to learn some more advanced arts of artifact refinement.

“I am not lying to you. You know, the cultivation techniques of humans are all developed from the star cores of star beasts.

“Long ago, Shaolin had nurtured many experts and entered the space battlefield to hunt down many powerful star beasts. From there, they obtained a large number of star cores and developed many cultivation methods.

“After thousands of years of development, the people of Shaolin had both joined the army and had their own independent mercenary groups. They killed more and more star beasts and obtained countless cultivation techniques.

“Therefore, within our nine provinces, there is also a saying that ‘Shaolin is the best martial arts in the world’.

“Actually, you should still consider it.”

Ye Xiao’s expression was still as indifferent as before, and he was not moved in the slightest.

“I know what I’m capable of, so there’s no need to embarrass myself.”

No matter how good the Shaolin Martial Arts Academy was, there were still many rules for attending school.

How could it be as free as in the library?

He did not have to do anything, and he had money!

Could there be a more beautiful job than that?

Moreover, he only needed to look at the cultivation technique of the same origin to learn. He did not need to look at overly profound cultivation techniques.

Previously, Fa Zheng had given him the Golden Armor. After Golden Book recorded it, he only refine its basic tactics.

As long as it did not affect his strength, it was the same no matter where he went.

Ouyang Yunzhong sighed slightly. She really felt sorry for Ye Xiao.

It was not easy for an ordinary person to enter the Shaolin Martial Arts Academy in Chu province.

Yet, Ye Xiao had wasted such a good opportunity.

‘Alright then. I just felt sorry and could not help but persuade him.’

“How about this. Since you are not willing to go to Shaolin, go to the upper floor of the library and take a look. There are also some better armament-refining techniques there.”

Ye Xiao was slightly stunned. He looked at Ouyang Yunzhong, who smiled and said,

“You don’t have to look at me like that. Although your strength isn’t enough to go to the upper floor, I’ll allow it. Who asked you to be a veteran of the library? Besides, I’m quite embarrassed that the matter of me introducing you to a partner ended up like this.”

“Then thank you, director.”

Ye Xiao did not bother to be polite with her.

He did not care whether the cultivation techniques on the upper floor were strong or weak. What he cared about was the uniqueness of the origin of the cultivation techniques. It could be different from the few cultivation techniques that he was currently cultivating.

At that time, he would be able to cultivate a few more armament-refining cultivation techniques and then synthesize them into a powerful cultivation technique.

Ouyang Yunzhong smiled.

“It’s fine, go ahead. However, don’t forget to eat lunch. It’s not good for your body to keep reading without break.”

“Got it.”

Ye Xiao replied and took the list. Then, he quickly went to the fourth floor of the library.
