Aspiring to the Immortal Path

Chapter 9: Washing the Meridians

When Tang Jie woke up, he found himself lying in the bed.

Sitting up, he saw Xu Muyang standing nearby in front of a desk, writing something with his brush.

Without turning his head, Xu Muyang said, “Lie back down. Your Jade Gate was just opened and your Spirit Platform is still unstable. It still needs time to firm up.”

With a flick of his hand, the talisman beneath his brush flew up and attached itself to Tang Jies body.

It was only now that Tang Jie realized that the world looked different, that all of the objects around him had become clearer, the colors were vibrant, the air more beautiful, and his body brimming with strength that seemed like it could never run out.

“Big Brother Xu, are you saying that I can cultivate now?” Tang Jie delightedly asked.

“In terms of aptitude… yes.”

“Wonderful!” Tang Jie was so excited that he wanted to jump, but as he began to move, the talisman on his body flashed. Tang Jie was instantly rendered immobile and forced to lie back down.

“I already told you not to move,” Xu Muyang said, turning around and thrusting the brush at Tang Jie several times. Several threats of light appeared in the air and wound themselves around Tang Jie.

“Big Brother Xu, this is…” Tang Jie didnt understand what was going on.

“A minor spirit-constricting art. It can temporarily restrain the spiritual energy in your body and prevent it from moving around. Last night, your spiritual energy ran amok, doing severe damage to your meridians. You need to rest and recover before you can actually begin cultivation. Spend the next two days taking a good rest. Ive already gotten some time off for you from your job at Anyang Prefecture,” Xu Muyang lightly said.

At this time, Xu Muyang put down the brush and sat down next to Tang Jie. Smiling, he said, “Five cycles of the Jade Gate—medium aptitude, not bad. Even more astonishing is that you did it alone. That you were able to reach this stage is a sign of your astonishing persistence.”

Five cycles meant that Tang Jie had opened five layers of the Jade Gate. The Jade Gates of the Spirit Platform could be divided into high, medium, and low grades. Three cycles and lower was considered low-grade, while seven cycles and above was considered high-grade.

Tang Jie had completed five cycles of his Jade Gate, making him the middle of the middle. Though he wasnt some incredibly talented individual, he also wasnt trash.

After hearing Xu Muyang say this, Tang Jie finally hazily recalled that last night, under Xu Muyangs guidance, he seemingly had charged through five gates.

Charging at the gates brought immense pain, and even with his adult resolve and astonishing persistence, he only managed to reach the fifth layer. After breaking through the fifth layer, he had fallen unconscious, thus putting an end to any further progress.
