Chapter 80: Side Effect of Practicing the Unsurpassable Martial Arts
Leaving the storeroom, Ning Shu saw that the surrounding were heavily guarded – there was a guard every ten steps. These guards had all come from the palace. Li Wen had bestowed them to her. Truly, Li Wen treated the original host really well. It was just that the original host had been submerged in her own sorrows and couldn’t see any of it.
Family, nation, world. There were many things that were meaningful in the world, what need was there to cling so much to one love?
Ning Shu took off her shoes and climbed onto the bed. She placed the book in front of her, then copied the meditation pose depicted in the book. Even she felt like it was a dumb idea to casually copy the movements on the book. What if it ended up causing qigong deviation?
>Qigong deviation is when something goes wrong in spiritual or martial arts training and is believed to result from “improper practice.”<
However, for some reason Ning Shu felt like this book was probably the genuine article. She took a deep breath and was just about to start meditating when she heard the system’s voice.
The system hadn’t made a sound ever since she came to this world. Although its voice was mechanical and emotionless, at this moment, Ning Shu actually felt that it was slightly endearing. To feel that a system without emotions or self-thought was endearing, she must have gone stupid.
“Ding. Martial arts manual discovered. Conduct conversion? Yes/No.” The system’s voice suddenly appeared and gave Ning Shu a fright.
“Once I convert it, can I still learn from the manual?” asked Ning Shu.
“Then convert it.” Ning Shu converted the manual and in the end it only converted for 100 points. So little points.
>What type of points these are isn’t specified. And I don’t remember what they were for either. Xp<
Ning Shu: Pff…
However, the fact that the system acknowledged it meant that this manual was a genuine article. It made Ning Shu relieved and no longer worried about qi deviation occuring.
She sat on the bed and emptied her mind as she followed the motions in the book.
And then… And then after an entire night of meditation, Ning Shu didn’t sense anything different at all. The only thing was, she wasn’t very tired from not having slept the entire night. At the same time, she didn’t feel relaxed either.
Yuan Dong walked in to attend to Ning Shu. Ning Shu soaked her hands in the hot water, then Yuan Dong helped her wipe her hands dry.
Ning Shu was in deep thought. Duan Xinghui would probably be back after just a little while longer, and Er Ya would arrive as well. Then, the true battle would start.
Before that happened, she had to deal with the matter of the betrothal first, which meant that she had to show Li Wen her value. However, she had no idea how to go about that.
During breakfast, Ning Shu had to eat three bowls of porridge and five sesame rolls in order to feel half-full. What was this?
Yuan Dong was also astonished to see the princess’s appetite undergo such a huge change. “Princess, this servant knows that you’re feeling depressed but it’s truly not good to eat too much.”
She really wasn’t eating out of sorrow ah, she was truly still hungry. Even Ning Shu herself didn’t know what was going on.
She kept an indifferent expression on her face as she wolfed down another three steamed buns. As Yuan Dong watched on with a contorting expression, she ate another two sesame rolls.
Only then did she feel her hunger subside.
It couldn’t be that the side effect of practicing the Unsurpassable Martial Arts was that you would become a glutton?
The mental image was too beautiful, Ning Shu didn’t even dare to imagine it.
After breakfast, she returned to her room and started meditating on the bed. She refused to give up just because of this and was determined to learn this Unsurpassable Martial Arts.
And then… And then when it was lunch, Ning Shu ate five bowls of rice and swept all the dishes on the table into her stomach.
This confirmed Ning Shu’s hypothesis that her body was changing. To transform, the body needed a large quantity of energy. It was said that in ancient times, people that practiced martial arts could eat an entire cow for a meal, because their bodies simply needed way too much energy.
Yuan Dong watched the princess worriedly. Anyone would be stunned to see such a beautiful person eat so much. Moreover, where did all the food go?
The princess was acting way too abnomal. Could it be that Princess has really abandoned herself to despair?
Yuan Dong sighed. General Duan ah, General Duan, where are you? Yuan Dong didn’t believe that Duan Xinghui was dead. She felt like he would definitely come back one day.
Ning Shu put down the bowl and burped. Afterwards, she distinctly felt her stomach move to digest the food. Following that, something warm flowed through her body.
Although the manual hadn’t converted for a lot of points, Ning Shu was very happy since it turned out to be useful.
