Soaring Of Galaxia - Chapter 7
Chapter 7: Return to the Martial Arts Academy
Translator: Kazeyuki Editor: Jimmy
After he had made the decision to return to the academy, Wu Xinghe was not in a hurry to go back to River County. Instead, he stayed for another month at the Qin house. In this month, Wu Xinghe strictly followed his routine. He woke up when he heard the first crow of the chicken and ran ten laps around Eastwood Town.
Running laps not only helped him to improve his body fitness but also helped him to exercise his endurance. Most importantly, endurance was one of the exam topics in the Martial Arts Student Exam in four years.
One of the reasons that Qin Lianshan had sent him to study at the academy was to help him to prepare for the Martial Arts Student Exam in four years. He wanted him to achieve a decent grade on that exam.
After he had finished his laps, he went to the family training ground to lift iron balls. This exercise helped him to increase his arm and waist strength.
It was already noon when he finished all the exercises.
After a brief break, he practiced martial arts techniques in the afternoon. He had chosen the set of <Fist of King Kong>as his specialized offensive attack after he had combined the masculine route he took in the former world.
Then he ran laps around Eastwood Town until dusk.
In the evening, he closed his doors and studied the dhyana techniques from his previous life.
Qin Lianshan did not have the time to supervise him as he was busy taking care of the family business. On the other hand, Qin Xiu put aside the family business she was responsible for and focused on taking care of her brother.
Qin Xiu stubbornly wanted to take care of her brother even though the family had servants and maids. She insisted on arranging nutritious food for Wu Xinghe. Since she was a girl, Qin Xiu did not meet the physical requirement to practice martial arts. Therefore, she entrusted her childhood dream of practicing martial arts onto her brother.
Wu Xinghe's goal was to complete the training for the stage of ’’Power Force’’ in three to six months.
Then he wanted to recover about seventy or eighty percent of his strength before the ’’Family Class Evaluation.’’
All the hard work he had put in was to work toward the ’’Family Class Evaluation.’’
They will have hope if the family is here.
Of course, this was just Wu Xinghe's initial plan.
He still needed to work hard each day to achieve his ambitions. If Wu Xinghe trained with a carefree attitude and felt that he could slack off because he had his previous experiences, he would most likely not regain the strength he'd had from his previous life!
Wu Xinghe was a grandmaster of martial arts in his previous life. He knew very well that the biggest taboo in martial arts training was overconfidence.
With a goal and a plan, Wu Xinghe stuck to them diligently. Within this month, each day he woke up earlier than the chicken and slept later than the dog. (In Chinese, this meant he worked extremely hard).
A month of time had passed by, unnoticed. Wu Xinghe gradually shook off the discomfort he'd had after his resurrection. He adapted to his role and got along with his new family. Each day, as he spent more time with the Qin family and received their kindness, the more affectionate he became.
In this month, he had also decided to completely abandon the name of Wu Xinghe and assume the identity of Qin Wushuang.
In his previous life, Wu Xinghe was not his real name. Therefore, his action would not count as forgetting his ancestors.He was, infact, an orphan. He did not know his parents nor his family name. An old martial artist had adopted him, and because he also practiced the martial art, he had used ’’Wu’’ as the surname (In Chinese, Wu meant martial art). As for the words ’’Xinghe,’’ the old martial artist had named him with these words for he had hoped that Wu Xinghe could train to the highest level in which he would have the power to blast through a galaxy.
However, Qin Wushuang was not self-satisfied with his memories of the martial arts techniques and the valuable experience of his past life.
This morning, when he had finished his laps, Qin Wushuang had come to the deeper part of the mountain on the backside of Eastwood Town. He took advantage of the good weather and readied his stance to practice the <Fist of King Kong>. Each of his punches struck the trunks of trees that were as thick as a person's wrist. He did not miss a single target.
With the crisp rupturing sound, a tree crashed down as he threw punches.
<Fist of King Kong>was a set of masculine fist technique from the Shaolin martial arts. This method trained the fists to become as hard as iron and sturdy like King Kong. It was the most difficult technique among all fist methods.
After he had finished a set of the fist techniques, he then practiced a set of leg and palm techniques. Finally, he slowly winded down when the sweat had completely soaked his clothes. When he saw the trunks laying under his feet, Wu Xinghe was very pleased because all his hard work through this month had paid off.
Right now, he had achieved improvement with the set of <Fist of King Kong>as his fists now contained the temperament of King Kong. However, it was still far from his peak level and not sturdy enough for him to use it. Even though to Qin Wushuang, who had only resurrected a month ago, it was a huge improvement!
Of course, his current strength was far from Qin Wushuang's expectation. It was only the first tiny step. In this new world, his current power still ranked at the bottom.
At most, his strength was equivalent to Stage Six or Seven of the Power Force and would be enough to pass the Martial Arts Student Exam. However, this force was far too weak to deal with bigger situations such as the ’’Family Class Evaluation.’’
There was still a long road to go to reach the peak of Stage Nine of the Power Force. Not to mention that his goal was to reach the stage of Genuine Force where he would have the ability to produce internal force and have superior exterior technique.
He looked at the sky and saw that the sun had risen. People had started to appear on the road as he looked down the mountain.
Qin Wushuang laughed self-deprecatingly and muttered to himself: ’’No matter what, I have the power to deal with those martial art students when I return to the academy. At least I can meet them with ease, right?’’
Wu Xinghe had been invincible in his previous life. He would become depressed if he could not fight back a few little martial art students.
He did not decide to return to the Academy for revenge. Of course, he would never miss the chance to do it either. Teaching a lesson to a little kid would not be fun. However, to not take revenge would not be his way of doing things if he were in his previous life. Since he had taken over Qin Wushuang's body, he should show a little gratitude, shouldn't he?
The news of Qin Wushuang being alive and the fact that he had returned to the academy caused an uproar. Everyone felt that Qin Wushuang had the ability to survive like a cockroach.
When Qin Wushuang stepped into the Martial Arts Academy, thousands of martial art students came to see him.
Naturally, these students did not understand how Qin Wushuang was still alive since people had officially announced his death.
Since he had managed to survive, why did he return to the academy and not stay hidden in Eastwood Town? Did he not know that he could lose his life anytime if he came back here?
Everyone was curious, why did Qin Wushuang return to the Academy?
For two lifetimes, Qin Wushuang was reborn as a human. Of course, he did not care to explain to these kids. He happily received the attention and returned to his dorm.
Each boarding martial art student had their individual room. Although it was only a room, it helped students to keep their privacy and provided them with an excellent training environment.
As for the reason to return to the academy? Of course, Qin Wushuang had his plan.
However, someone knocked on the door when his butt had not yet warmed the chair.
From his predecessor's memory, Qin Wushuang knew that this person was called Hu Ziyan. He was a martial art student from Eastwood Town.
’’Wushuang, why did you come back?’’ Hu Ziyan asked directly with an anxious tone.
’’What about it?’’ Qin Wushuang asked with a chill voice after he glanced at Hu Ziyan.
Hu Ziyan maintained a close relationship with Qin Wushuang. He was his friend from Eastwood Town. Today was the first time they had met again after Qin Wushuang's accident.
’’Can we talk inside?’’ Hu Ziyan pointed to the dorm.
The two of them walked into the dorm. Qin Wushuang jumped onto the bed and sat cross-legged. He did not ask the reason of Hu Ziyan's visit.
Hu Ziyan carefully shut the door and spoke in a low voice: ’’Wushuang, why didn't you go back to Eastwood? Surely you knew that Zhang Xian and his people deliberately gave you trouble?’’
’’Yes, I know,’’ Qin Wushuang replied.
’’If you knew, why are you still here? I see that Zhang Xian still wants to give you trouble these days. You better be careful. I say, just go back to Eastwood town.’’ Hu Ziyan rubbed his hands. His eyes were caring and anxious because he cared about Qin Wushuang from the bottom of his heart.
’’You came to inform me of this, and you are not scared that they will give you trouble?’’ A rare trace of a playful smile emerged on Qin Wushuang's face.
’’I don't have anything they would want. Anyways, we grew up together in Eastwood Town. Although I don't have the strength to help you, I also don't want to see others bully you. Wushuang, listen to me, go back to Eastwood!’’
Hu Ziyan was solemn when he spoke these words. He looked at Qin Wushuang and waited for his reply.
’’Ziyan, don't ever come here again if it is not an emergency. I will take care of my own business. If you don't want trouble, then don't get involved with these matters. It will not benefit you.’’
Qin Wushuang's words were not kind, but he spoke the truth.
’’Wushuang, you are stubborn! Don't be stupid, and leave as soon as you can...’’
Hu Ziyan suddenly stopped, because he saw Qin Wushuang was staring at him with a pair of stern eyes.
’’If you have finished, then leave.’’
Then, he opened the door, pushed Hu Ziyan out, and shut the door with a bang.
Dumbfounded, Hu Ziyan stood outside of the door for a few minutes. He wondered if that was still his friend, Qin Wushuang? How did he become so unreasonable?
Qin Wushuang lightly twitched his mouth as he also felt somewhat helpless. It was not because he did not want to be friends with him and had become an evil man. However, he first wanted to focus on his training, and second, he did not want to involve the innocent. The situation right now was very harsh because Zhang Xian and his people could give trouble to him at any time.
He knew that Hu Ziyan had come with good intentions. But the better the intentions he had, the more trouble it meant.
Hu Ziyan still needed to stay another three or four years at the academy. If he offended those aristocratic children for him, then he would be in a worse situation.
Qin Wushuang was different. He only returned to the Academy because he wanted to know more about this world and to collect more information about the current circumstances. At the same time, he wanted to wait for some opportunities and to finish some personal business.
In other words, he could leave anytime.
Only, Qin Wushuang did not expect Zhang Xian and his people to be very tolerant this time.
