Chapter 1096: The Xue Family’s Guest
“Piece of cake!” w.a.n.g Lin turned to look at the Frost Sutra again.
But as w.a.n.g Lin read, his face began to soften and change. There was indeed a mention of frost, but there was no inherent focus on the element.
“No way!” Squinting his eyes to observe with greater focus, he noticed that the words were phrased in a way that did not support frost as a primary element.
He would have been able to mention the inclusion of frost air in the text, but with so many professionals watching, they’d have been able to tell he was just trying to cover up his own mistake.
Everyone was now aghast at this revelation, and they peered at the sutra in a new light. They noticed the Frost Sutra never explicitly mentioned it was a frost technique.
They always believed it was based on frost due to the Xue family being who they were, and their experience in casting frosty and icy elemental powers. Frost was even included in the sutra’s t.i.tle.
“There’s no need to continue. There is no mention of frost being a core component of the sutra, and yet, the beginning of Jadeskin explicitly refers to a combination of yin and frost. It’s an easy mistake to make,” Han Sen said with a grin.
The Xue family looked at w.a.n.g Lin in shock.
Xue Feiyan then asked Han Sen, “So, what is the problem exactly?”
Han Sen told her. “The Frost Sutra is a yin and soft Qi Gong. The actual presence of frost has nothing to do with an expertise with the sutra. The Xue family possesses frosty powers and three yin pulses. Your frosty talents made the Frost Sutra produce a frost energy. This is what led to a misunderstanding in the first place, and this is what has affected your bodies negatively.”
“The geno fluid increases your yin and frost element. That, combined with your cold place of habitat… Well, problems would have always been difficult to avoid, given the circ.u.mstances,” Han Sen explained.
The professionals glanced over the Frost Sutra and Jadeskin again, and they too were now able to acknowledge the error.
“Mister Han, how do we fix this issue?” Xue Yufeng saw w.a.n.g Lin robbed of his ability to speak, so he asked Han Sen.
Han Sen said, “You have to remove the frost element. If you practice it profoundly, you must ingest something warm to nurse your body. You should also improve Iceheart. And ideally, it would be best if you didn’t live somewhere this cold.”
Han Sen provided the Xue family a solution to their woes, but he did not care if they actually listened and adhered to what they were told.
Everyone was now inching closer towards Han Sen in admiration of his intelligence. w.a.n.g Lin had already snuck away from the hall in shame, but no one noticed.
The Xue family treated Han Sen like an honored guest now, too. They asked him to help personally modify Jadeskin and the geno fluid again. They also wanted him to help them improve Iceheart.
The three other families were happy, too. If this worked, then it meant everyone could practice the Frost Sutra.
Han Sen did not think it would benefit them, though. Without the three yin pulses the Xue family had, it would be extremely slow for them to learn.
It would most likely take members of the other families twenty years to reach a mere beginner status.
Han Sen stayed on their planet for a while, and he noticed a gradual change in the Xue family. He was given genuine respect from everyone there.
Aside from modifying the Frost Sutra and Iceheart, Han Sen spent some time indulging in a number of rare books that were secret to the other families.
He stayed there for a month to establish the basics on their behalf and left the remainder of the work to be completed by the family’s own professionals.
The professionals were not much worse than Han Sen in talent, so there was no need for him to worry about them messing up.
The Xue family, in the meantime, also made plans to leave the planet and make their home in someplace warmer.
Xue Feiyan took care of Han Sen for the duration of his stay there, and she made sure to ask him many questions.
Han Sen answered diligently, and she cherished each answer. The relations.h.i.+p they developed was not too different from one formed by a teacher and a disciple.
When Han Sen left them, he continued modifying his own new Jadeskin. The Frost Sutra was used as a base, but he knew it had to be more than that.
Han Sen needed it to be much better than what it was, so it could provide support for his Dongxuan Sutra. For the cons his signature sutra may have harbored, he hoped his modifications of Jadeskin could rectify them.
But unfortunately, Han Sen could not modify it in the way he did for the Xue family. This would take a lot of time.
Back in the sanctuary, Han Sen brought Disloyal Knight to the Devil’s Realm so they could continue hunting creatures. His badge had almost collected ten thousand Devil Presences, and he was excited to find out what he might be able to trade with the Devil King.
This was the reason why Han Sen had not left the area for a few years.
Han Sen was depressed seeing Little Angel, though. He still had no clue how long it would take for her to evolve.
But the egg of the dinosaur had finally started to show some movement, and just as it did, the sh.e.l.l began to crack. It was hatching.
Han Sen hoped to see how much it had evolved, and what manner of powers it possessed.
Without a doubt, it was going to be a ma.s.sive help for Han Sen’s future adventures.
Han Sen just hoped it wouldn’t run off the moment it was born.
