Volume 1 Chapter 20: Dark, Golden Ball
No lights were turned on in the gloomy room.
In utter darkness, Luo Feng sat on the sofa. He was unable to calm down: ’’This power is too powerful. A regular pistol could only make a dent out of that huge boulder. With my needle, I easily destroyed the fake mountain;it's power is easily tens to hundreds of times stronger!’’
In the war between man and beast that has lasted for a couple dozen years, man couldn't achieve victory because the beasts are too strong.
There are weak and strong monsters in their horde.
Even the weakest monsters can shake off the pistol's attacks. Even the weakest fighter can block the bullet with just their muscles. For the stronger monsters, even military grade weapons cannot harm them. Only heavy class sniper rifles, huge barreled heavy machine guns, high rate of fire machine guns, cannons, etc, can harm them!
Of course, the top monsters like the 'Black crowned eagle' wouldn't even lose a feather after withstanding a barrage from the 20mm fire-god cannon! That, is truly terrifying.
’’I can't believe I have telekinesis, this, could this be.....’’ Luo Feng's heart skipped a beat, ’’Could it be a spirit reader's 'spiritual force'?’’
Luo Feng knew very little about spirit readers.
However, he knew some basic information. Spirit readers were usually powerful fighters who also trained their genetic energy! However, spirit readers not only train the basic genetic energy, but also their second power telekinesis！This telekinesis is called by most, 'spiritual force'.
’’However, I'll have to check later if it's actually spiritual force’’ Luo Feng thought.
Luo Feng has only seen one spirit reader since birth.
And that is the mysterious black robed person chief instructor 'Wu Tong' called captain in Yang Zhou city's limit hall.
’’The needle's power was powerful, but it would be no use against the black crowned eagle. Only a high intensity laser cannon or nuclear weapons could pose a threat to them’’ Luo Feng was clear that, even though his current power was amazing, there are tens to hundreds to thousands of even more powerful existences on earth!
According to the internet, the strongest fighter who slayed the black crowned eagle
His speed surpasses the speed of sound! He can cut the black crowned eagle in half with just a knife! One kick could destroy a six story apartment!
This is the strongest person within all the fighters.
’’The strongest fighter 'Hong', the second strongest 'Thunder God', are treated as equals by the five major countries!’’ Luo Feng took a deep breath. For a country to treat one person as an equal, it's obvious that their powers are insanely high.
’’My needle probably can't even touch their bodies’’ Luo Feng reminded himself: Even though he was powerful, there are still many other powerful people.
Even though he reminded himself this.....
Those fighters are too far ahead for Luo Feng to comprehend. Luo Feng's current power is enough for his family to live a great life.
’’I'm still young, so I might be able to stand in the circle of the strongest fighters in the future’’ Luo Feng thought with excitement.
In this gloomy room, Luo Feng has awakened, so he was too excited to sleep.
’’Whatever, I'm too worked up to sleep now. I guess I'll do some genetic energy training’’ Luo Feng got into the Wu Xin Xian Tian position and closed his eyes to start training.
His body already has some genetic energy and he has previous experience.
So it was very easy to sense the energy.
The genetic energy flowed through his soles, palms, and the artery of his head, ’’It seems like the rate of absorption is faster today’’. The energy followed the five paths into Luo Feng's body. Every cell in every location gulped down this mysterious energy.
With the mitochondrial conversion, the energy turned into genetic energy.
’’Eh? My head.....’’ Luo Feng could feel that a large amount of energy flowed into his brain and gathered there.
After something like a tremor of a soul, Luo Feng surprisingly found out..... that his consciousness has moved to a very mysterious place.
This mysterious place had no borders or walls, it was just an infinite expanse of fog. In this fog, there was a dark, golden ball. This dark, golden ball was like a star that slowly rotated by itself, while releasing a stream of fog. This mysterious place's fog kept increasing.
’’This fog..... is, is the spiritual force?’’ Luo Feng easily felt the energy in the fog;it was his spiritual force that he used to control things.
Luo Feng clearly saw a stream of transparent energy leak into this mysterious place;the energy quickly assimilated into the fog's energy. Luo Feng could feel that the transparent energy was the cosmic energy.
’’This fog is the spiritual force, and this transparent energy is the cosmic energy. The cosmic energy is sucked into here and transformed into spiritual force. My spiritual force extends from my brain’’ Luo Feng was shocked, ’’This place is my brain? Or should I say, my conscious realm?’’
The conscious realm is a special title fighters use for the mind.
’’Why is there a dark, golden ball in the middle of my conscious realm?’’ Luo Feng observed as this dark golden ball constantly rotated by itself and released the fog (spiritual force). As it released the spiritual force, Luo Feng's mind was also comfortable.
’’This dark, golden ball might be the cause for all my comas’’ Luo Feng had an intuition.
’’A dark, golden ball releasing spiritual force?’’
’’In the past, I didn't have any spiritual force. I only had it after this time's coma’’ Luo Feng thought, ’’Then with this time's coma, this dark, golden ball released a large amount of spiritual force. Not only did it grant me the power of telekinesis, but it also enhanced my body’’
His fitness level was strong, but compared to telekinesis, it was nothing.
’’When the prisoners were attacking me, one of them threw a knife. That knife suddenly changed direction when it was about to pierce through my shoulder. I guess that was because of my spiritual force’’ Luo Feng easily deducted the truth from the situation.
Indeed, the dark, golden ball did release a large amount of spiritual force from this time's coma.
However, when Luo Feng first started doing genetic energy training on his first night in jail, the cosmic energy started triggering changes in his conscious realm. Even without the throwing knife, the dark, golden ball was already releasing a large amount of spiritual force. As time passed, it built up and gave him the power of telekinesis.
The throwing knife attack only caused Luo Feng to awaken earlier.
’’There's a 90% chance that this dark, golden ball was acting up and caused my comas as a result. However, now that the dark, golden ball is constantly releasing spiritual force, I shouldn't be going into a coma anymore’’ Luo Feng thought that, like a dam holding back water, the dark, golden ball couldn't release any spiritual force.
Because of that, Luo Feng had headaches every day. Now that there's a channel for the water to drain out, there's naturally no problem anymore.
Dawn of day two. When Luo Feng was leaving the room and went down stairs, he realized there was someone sitting in the lobby.
’’Good morning, Mr. Luo Feng’’ A man in a military uniform stood up and smiled.
’’Hello’’ Luo Feng said suspiciously, ’’Where is this place, how did I get here? Also, I think I've never met you before’’
The military officer smiled: ’’Let me introduce myself. I am Zhi-An region's jail's Tong An. This is my Zhi-An region's military recuperation area. Mr. Luo Feng..... I can't believe that you already passed the prospective fighter exam. Of course, our jail has no right to keep Mr. Luo Feng here, so Mr. Luo Feng has the right to go home now’’
’’Go home now?’’ Luo Feng nodded.
Luo Feng wasn't surprised, since when he beat up so many prisoners yesterday and especially when he left so many dents on the metal tables, it was easy for people to realize his true strength.
’’I want to ask, who was behind all of this?’’ Luo Feng frowned.
The military officer hesitated.
’’If your jail cannot answer, I will contact the dojo of limits and go through Jiang-Nan city's security agency to find everything out’’ said Luo Feng. Once this matter goes out, people will know that a prospective fighter was locked up in a jail and mobbed by prisoners and that the jail tried to hide the offenders.
In the higher authorities of the jail, there'll definitely be trouble.
The military officer laughed: ’’Don't rush, Mr. Luo Feng. It's like this, according to our investigations, a gang leader named 'Zhou Hua Yang' organized this attack. According to our investigation, they wanted to break Mr. Luo Feng's arm and leg’’
’’Oh?’’ Luo Feng frowned, ’’Break my arm and leg? How cruel, they want to take me out? I don't even know this Zhou Hua Yang, who made him do it?’’
The military officer replied: ’’We have already interrogated Zhou Hua Yang. A teenager named Zhang Hao Bai asked him to do it’’
’’Zhan Hao Bai?’’
Luo Feng's gaze was cold, ’’He doesn't know when to quit!’’
’’Indeed, he doesn't’’ The military officer smiled, ’’Luo Feng, you can choose to go through Jiang-Nan city's security agency to detain Zhang Hao Bai. He was the mastermind of a plot to harm a prospective fighter, which is a heavy crime! It's normal for him to get 20 years in prison’’
’’Don't blame me for speaking out of turn, but Zhang Hao Bai's uncle is also a fighter!’’ said the military officer, ’’Luo Feng, you can choose to make his uncle lose face and ask the security agency to detain Zhang Hao Bai..... since the security agency deals with all the fighters' matters and have immense power. Zhang Hao Bai's uncle cannot influence the actions of the security agency at all’’
’’You can choose to make an enemy out of his uncle and deal with Zhang Hao Bai’’
’’You can also negotiate with him in private and make the Zhang family pay money. All of this will be decided by you, Luo Feng’’ The military officer smiled, ’’That's all I had to say. Your cell phone and other belongings are all right here, Mr. Luo Feng’’
Luo Feng nodded.
To negotiate in private and make him pay a large sum of money? Or deal with him regardless of the consequences?
’’Hello, Dad’’ Luo Feng held up the cell phone and called, ’’I left the jail already and I'll be home in a bit to eat breakfast! Don't worry, dad, your son is very strong now, how could there be any problems?’’
