Hai Long's body was in good condition, his vitals were functioning normally,it was just that his spiritual power was practically exhausted and too much mental strength was lost. Adding on to the fact that he was thoroughly shocked, he was currently unconscious. He would be fine after a night's rest. Daoming's innate nature was kind, and treated every disciple of his with utmost importance. It was just that he valued his pride, and also did not have an excellent temper, therefore he seemed strict. Just as he was about to channel his power to aid Hai Long's recovery, he suddenly jumped as though he felt something.
Daoming fiercely widened his eyes and muttered ’’This old sixth, how come he entered the Fetal Formation stage at this time? His mental state hasn't stabilised and there will be danger.’’ He hurriedly channel untainted power into Hai Long's body and left the stone residence.
After Dao Xiuzi left, Ling Wise and Ling Yuanzi also left for closed door cultivation whereas the other 4th generation disciples also returned to the wooden residence at Cloudstroke Peak, feeling ill at ease. As Ling Tongzi was feeling slightly distracted in his mind, he suddenly felt his body jolt up as all his spiritual power surged madly towards the Pingliang vicinity, seemingly out of his control. He shuddered, could it be because he didn't pay attention to his Dao heart and could not manage to synchronise with his magic? As he did not have time to return to his room, Ling Tongzi hurriedly sat himself on the floor and tried to concentrate and control his magical powers. These changes attracted the attention of a few nearby disciples. Ling Yunzi saw green light violently surging outside Ling Tongzi's body and seemingly lost his voice ’’Not good, Junior Brother is about to enter the Fetal Formation Stage. Quick, let's be his Dao protectors and prevent the invasion of evil magic.
’’All of you move aside, stand in the outer circle.’’ Daoist Daoming spoke with a low voice. As a green light flashed, his bloated stature already appeared behind Ling Tongzi, roiling power surged out, as Daoming used his pristine cultivation to restritct Ling Tongzi's disorderly power in an instant. ’’The heart watches over, the mind becomes one, thoughts and internal qi, flow naturally with nature.’’
Listening to his master's voice, Ling Tongzi's psychological state calmed down, under the constraining of Daoist Daoming's powers, the undulating powers around his body also stabilised as well. Fetal formation requires going through a process, this process usually lasted about 3 days. In order to help his disciple overcome this cultivation obstacle, Daoist Daoming did not dare to wander far.
Although 3 days wasn't a long time, it was enough for some people to do many things. On the second day that Ling Tongzi entered the Fetal Formation Realm, under the magic that Daoist Daoming imbued before he left, Hai Long gradually woke up from his slumber. As he stretch his weakened body, his groggy state of mind started to dissipate and the previous happenings started coming back into his mind.
’’Ah! This little Iron Bar saved me. How did it have such strong power?’’ Hai Long didn't know that Reverend Skyrock had already retracted thoughts of attacking at that time, and hence boundless rage for Reverent Skyrock and his Grandmaster Daoist Daoming had arisen in his heart. As he took out the iron bar, Hai Long begrudgingly said ’’Skyrock and Daoming, you two old scumbags, you dared to attack me, you guys just wait, when I get stronger, I won't let you two get away. Eh? What is this place? Could it be they locked me up?’’ Hai Long looked around and saw that his surroundings were pretty bare, apart from the bed he was on, there wasn't any other furniture, not even the simplest of wooden tables like in his old room. Noticing these, it gave Hai Long an even stronger feeling that he was imprisoned.
As he jumped down from the bed, Hai Long felt his entire body give way to weakness in an instant, Originally that stream of warm flow only gave him a slight feeling of warmth. As he moved his body, he couldn't help but feel like he could not adapt to this weakness. As he looked around, he realised that the only window in the room actually wasn't locked and looking at it, it seems like it was big enough for him to crawl through. Hai Long scratched his head as he said to himself ’’Could it be that the old fogey was careless? He didn't even seal the windows. This stone door seems really thick, the window is my only option of escape. I'll first accumulate a bit of spirit power then make my escape. Ah, Junior Masters, why are you guys not here to save me. Could it be that you just watched the old fogey capture me? Looks like I'll have to rely on myself in all things. So what if I'm locked in here, when I become immortal, those people who have done me injustice, I'll make you servants under my feet. In the sky and on earth, only I shall be immortal.’’
After swearing, Hai Long indignantly kicked the stone door beside him. ’’Aiya, this hurts. Eh, why isn't the door locked.’’ That unimaginably thick stone door actually opened in front from his kick. With some suspicion, Hai Long skirted by the side of the door and checked the outside, once he saw that the coast was clear, then he sneaked out of the stone hut. Although he only came here once, he got his Daoist title ’’Spittoon’’ here, hence he could immediately tell that this was the Daoist Daoming's cultivation area. Hai Long scratched his head and suspiciously asked ’’How did I come here? En, it should definitely be that old bastard taking revenge on me, wanting to capture me and slowly fix me up good. No way, I need to get away, if not, that old bastard will definitely toy me to death.’’ As he was about to leave, Hai Long suddenly remembered, Cloudstroke Peak virtually had no land routes down the mountain, there are only sheer cliffs and rock precipices everywhere, furthermore the outer area of this mountain is tightly access restricted, with his current condition, there was no way he could rush out. Hai Long clenched his teeth and muttered ’’Heaven will find a way for determined men, I refuse to believe that there isn't a path down the mountain’’ Thinking till here, he quickly ran out of the Cloudstroke Residence and started to find his escape route.
After two hours, Hai Long who was dripping with sweat, returned to the Cloudstroke Residence, with the mountain wind battering against him, he was seemingly fighting a war with the cold. After searching every corner of Cloudstroke Peak, Hai Long was already demoralised. There was absolutely no way to descend the mountain, the surrounding cliffs and precipices all seemed to be formed by knife cuts.
’’Damnit, why must Daoming the old fogey live on such a forsaken place, could it be that I can only jump down the cliff and commit suicide? No. I need to cultivate to immortalhood, how can I give up on life so easily? Hmph, Daoming, didn't you want to kill me? Even in death, I won't let you have a good time.’’ Under the stoking of his anger, Hai Long started to take out his anger on the flowers and plants grown in the cave residence. These plants and flowers were no exception, all of them were spiritually thriving and of high quality, just that they weren't mature yet. Hai Long's idea was simple, he used the tiny spirit power in his feet and concentrated it in his feet, then trampled on the plants, after not even half an hour, the plants that absorbed heavenly essence in front of the stone hut all turned flat and barren.
