Chapter 152: The Missed Opportunity in Fangu (Part Three)
However, waterdrops were different. Although they hit Fang Jie from time to time, and Fang Jie’s muscles reacted in split-seconds, Fang Jie detected the changes after repeated attempts.
His muscles would instantly harden after being hit. Since the waterdrops didn’t have a ton of force, it was difficult to detect the response from the muscles.
Fang Jie only managed to detect it after concentrating for a while.
Fang Jie understood that his muscles would respond to external forces. After being hit, that part of his body would harden and block the incoming forces. Since the waterdrops were light, all the incoming forces were negated. However, if someone punched Fang Jie with force, only a portion of the incoming forces would be eliminated.
Fang Jie thought in joy, “If my body continues to grow, will I be able to ignore all attacks in the future?”
After thinking about that, Fang Jie instantly turned around and wanted to ask Qiu Yu. Then, he realized that he was naked and quickly put on his uniform that was already wet on the side.
He jumped out of the waterfall and asked Qiu Yu quickly, “Professor, can I ask you something?”
“What is it?”
Qiu Yu straightened her bangs and waited for Fang Jie’s question.
“Is there such a physique in the world that can’t be hurt by sabers and spears? Something in the real world and not imaginary?”
“Who has it?”
“I heard…” Qiu Yu paused for a second and said with a strange tone, “I heard that the Buddhist Sect has 3,000 golden-body monk soldiers, and they can’t be harmed by sabers and spears. I don’t know if they are born this way, or they cultivated a special technique. Also, the old monk who captured you that day; he mastered a unique technique of the Buddhist Sect. Even the flying swords of powerful cultivators couldn’t harm him, let alone ordinary weapons.”
Fang Jie froze for a second and asked angrily, “How come only the people of the Buddhist Sect have this ability? Isn’t there a cultivator of Great Sui who has this physique?”
“Yes… Luo Yao,” Qiu Yu said after a moment of silence, “If you want to know more about it, you should ask Principal Zhou. I don’t know much about the Buddhist Sect. There is someone else who you can ask, if he is willing to talk to you. However, you can’t find him now.”
“You saw him the other day. There was a senior in a sapphire robe when we attacked that old monk together. He knows more about the golden body of the Buddhist Sect. It is because… he battled those golden-body monk soldiers about 11 years ago.”
“Where is he now?” Fang Jie asked.
“He should be chasing after that old monk. Also, the village woman who saved you that day went with him.”
Fang Jie froze for a second and finally understood why Du Hongxian left so quickly without talking to him. He couldn’t help but think, “So, she went with that senior in the sapphire robe to chase after that old monk. Did I underestimate her before? She is so powerful. Does she know things about the Buddhist Sect as well? Otherwise, why did she chase after that old monk?”
Fang Jie suddenly realized that he missed many people and many things. He wondered why he didn’t realize that both Su Tugou and Du Hongxian were cultivation masters who potentially had battled the people of the Buddhist Sect before. He could have gotten answers to many questions on his mind back at Fangu.
