1018 Exposed Identity
Xiao Mo's Unrivalled Combat God cultivation went unusually well beyond his imagination.
In merely five days, he completed level-3 of cultivating. He built three energy circles in his body and spent three days to complete level-4. Then, he built a bigger circle in his body that connected the three smaller circles together without any bottleneck at all. He also completed the one-month mission Lin Huang assigned him, which was breaking through to mortal transformation-level (holy fire-level) successfully.
After that, he spent approximately ten days completing level-5 and level-6 cultivation. He had arrived at perfect-stage mortal transformation-level.
Since then, his cultivation speed had finally slowed down. He spent a full week to break through whereby he got to level-7 of the Unrivalled Combat God while his combat strength had elevated to the ascendance-level (immortal-level).
Even though he slowed down, he only spent a total of 25 days to get from having no cultivation to ascendance-level now which was on par with immortal-level.
What Xiao Mo had no idea about was that Fu Minghan and Qi Hao were the fastest people who cultivated the ancient method a few months ago.
One of them spent 23 days while another spent 27 days to get to mortal transformation-level.
Meanwhile, Xiao Mo only took eight days to break through to mortal transformation-level.
Cultivating the Unrivalled Combat God did not give Xiao Mo any pressure at all. Instead, he gained a lot more confidence from it.
Bloody was satisfied with his progress at the park too.
Although Xiao Mo still did not like crowded places, he began to get used to making small talk with strangers throughout the past 20 days or so. Furthermore, since he had to stay there for an hour, he began to observe the people's daily lives at the park when he had nothing to do.
Exercising, playing chess, drinking tea, dancing, singing…
Although he could not understand most of the things as they seemed like a waste of life to him, he began finding the fun in it.
He even tried to participate in a minority of activities after Bloody encouraged him.
After getting used to it, he heard many stories of other familiars from some talkative aunties and uncles. It was something that he had never heard before and he found it fresh.
Early in the morning, Xiao Mo saw an old man with gray hair and a beard walking toward him not long after he arrived at the park following breakfast.
The old man looked slightly skinny and was approximately 1.8 meters tall. He walked toward them in a pair of mossy green shoes.
The Ninetails Lynx that walked in front stopped all of a sudden while glaring deadly at the old man that was walking toward them.
Soon, Xiao Mo stood still on the bridge. He instinctively sensed a threat from the person, so his heart was racing.
On the other hand, Bloody sensed nothing, perhaps because of its low combat strength.
The old man walked slowly to Xiao Mo and asked while smiling, "Kid, do you know Lin Xie?"
Bloody's guard shot up right away when it heard that.
Aside, the Ninetails Lynx was in a position to attack anytime.
Xiao Mo's eyes became sharp now since he knew about Lin Huang's other identity.
"Don't worry. I've no ill intentions. I just need to ask Lin Xie something."
"I'm sorry. You've got the wrong guy," Xiao Mo answered with a stony face following Bloody's voice transmission, "I don't know any Lin Xie."
"How about… Lin Huang?" asked the old man without giving up.
Even Bloody's pupils shrunk upon hearing Lin Huang's name.
The person clearly came prepared. He had even done a background check on Lin Huang and found out his real identity.
"I don't know him. I've never heard of that name." Bloody got Xiao Mo to decline directly.
"Alright then." The old man nodded while feeling a little disappointed. "Sorry that I behaved absurdly."
The old man stopped his questions as soon as he was done speaking. He walked past Xiao Mo and shuffled away like a normal person.
Xiao Mo only let out a long sigh of relief when the person left his field of vision.
"I think that guy's at least a demigod. He might even be on perfect-stage demigod-level."
"He's here for Master, but he doesn't look like he has ill intentions for now."
"How are you sure that he has no such intentions?" Xiao Mo could not help but probe.
"Do you think a person who manages to find out who Master really is wouldn't find out who checked in to our hotel room?" Bloody asked him back, "He gave up noticing that we have our guard up. He didn't expose our lie. He's actually proving his pure intentions."
"So, do we tell him the truth?"
"No need. He'll definitely come back if there's something urgent. If not, we can wait until Master comes out of his closed-door cultivation."
Bloody did not take that meager episode to its heart.
Xiao Mo stayed at the park for an hour like he usually did. He talked to a few people and returned to the hotel after he was done with his mission. Then, he began cultivating again.
To Bloody's surprise, the old man with gray hair and the beard checked into the suite next door with another middle-aged man in the afternoon. It felt helpless about their actions.
Fortunately, the two demigods did not do anything apart from checking in next door. The most they would do was to greet them when they bumped into each other. They stopped asking about Lin Huang.
Time flew by. Xiao Mo spent 17 days to break through two levels in the method and arrived on level-9 of the Unrivalled Combat God. His combat strength had reached peak-stage ascendance-level which was on par with immortal-level rank-9.
On the fourth day when Xiao Mo broke through to level-9 of the Unrivalled Combat God, Lin Huang finally returned to the hotel when the sky was turning dark.
A white silhouette flashed before his eyes when he opened the door. The Ninetails Lynx was then sitting on his shoulder.
As he was cultivating, Xiao Mo stopped what he was doing and looked at Lin Huang.
"You've cultivated to level-9 of the Unrivalled Combat God?!" Lin Huang was in slight disbelief upon sensing Xiao Mo's aura.
"He performed well at the park too. He completed his mission every day without slacking off and missing anything," Bloody added. It was still in its cat form at the moment. It hopped off from the coffee table and walked toward Lin Huang.
"But there are two strange men looking for you during this period. I've no idea what they're up to. Both of them are demigods and they've been staying next door for close to 20 days. They didn't do anything, so I don't think they come with ill intentions."
As soon as Bloody was done speaking, the doorbell rang all of a sudden.
Lin Huang sensed clearly with his Territory skill that there were two men standing at the door at the moment. One was tall and strong while the other was skinny. The latter was the one who rang the doorbell.
Lin Huang turned around immediately and opened the door.
The old man was stunned when he saw Lin Huang in his own skin. He then asked in a testing manner, "Are you Lin Huang?"
"That's right. Are you looking for me?" Lin Huang raised his brow as he looked at the duo.
