"I'm alright. I don't feel sick, just a little tired." As Luo Yunyang spoke, he took a deep breath. The skin on his body had become so taut, that it seemed to have the texture of a metal.
Although Lu Xiu wanted Luo Yunyang to have a full physical examination, when he saw how exhausted Luo Yunyang looked, he said softly, "Go rest first. We can test what sort of progress you made in the afternoon. Just remember, if you feel any discomfort, you have to let me know immediately. Got it?"
Xu Zhong watched Luo Yunyang enter a room before turning to Lu Xiu and saying with some apprehension, "Does this mean that Luo Yunyang is alright?"
Lu Xiu shook his head. "I don't know, but at least he didn't turn into a golden statue, like Nie Tianyuan said."
"Yeah, I have no idea how he managed to get through this. Whatever, if he is really alright, then I'll take him out and have some fun!"
Normally, Chief Instructor Lu would have hit Xu Zhong, but this time he actually agreed. He nodded his head and said, "Young people should relax every now and then."
When Xu Zhong, who thought that he had said the wrong thing, heard Chief Instructor Lu's words, he looked sad.
Chief Instructor Lu, who didn't seem to care about this, waved his hands around and said, "Let the students prepare. The source fluid will be distributed in three days. Let's see if they will be able to turn from snakes into dragons. It will all depend on them."
Xu Zhong nodded. According to the rules, the source fluid should have been handed out the previous day, but the process had been delayed because they had been waiting for Luo Yunyang.
The source fluid distribution was a really important matter for the members of the elite cla.s.s.
Their ability to form a source core was really important after all.
Nothing unexpected had ever happened during the source fluid distribution in the past. However, this time Base 7 had three grade source fluids.
Although the Da Governor had given them the authority to hand out the source fluids themselves, choosing who would use the high-grade source fluids would be a headache.
Chief Instructor Lu was under a lot of pressure.
Luo Yunyang didn't return to his quarters in District One. Instead, he went into a room inside the Command Center and sat down.
The past seven days had felt like being in purgatory for him. If he hadn't raised his Const.i.tution to the max and adjusted his Mind whenever he felt like he was going to break, he was certain that he wouldn't have been able to endure it.
At the beginning, the golden body fluid had only burned his body, but after half a day, Luo Yunyang had felt like the liquid had turned into a rock, blocked a path in his body and obstructed his blood and Qi circulation.
One's blood and Qi circulation was something crucial that they could not do without.
When his Mind Attribute was low, Luo Yunyang felt as if he was going to fall into a deep sleep that he would never wake up from.
Just as he had been about to fall into a deep slumber, a sound had roared in his head and made Luo Yunyang sober up quickly.
He couldn't lower his Mind Attribute. He had to remain clear-headed.
10, 20, 30...
The higher his Mind Attribute was, the more painful it felt. The pain, which had felt like being thrown into a furnace, had made Luo Yunyang feel like he was going crazy.
As his Mind Attribute had increased though, Luo Yunyang had been able to sense his body's reactions more distinctively. In the end, he had realized that everything going on in his body was clearly reflected in his mind.
A drop of golden body fluid was dissolving in his body, but the dissolving process was too slow.
Use force! Let it fuse with my body… Let it fuse into my own blood!
This had been Luo Yunyang's only thought at the time. When he had used his mind power on the liquid, the golden liquid's speed had slowly become quicker.
Bit by bit, tiny incomparably st.u.r.dy cells had broken off the liquid.
Suddenly, Luo Yunyang had been able to tell that the golden body fluid was actually a drop of blood.
A drop of blood of unknown origin.
Luo Yunyang, who had eaten Steel-Scaled Python Meat before, knew that a small piece of meat could weigh over five kilos. Although that drop of blood wasn't that heavy, its content had left Luo Yunyang in awe.
He hadn't had any strength to ponder this at the time, as all his effort had been put into visualizing those cells splitting and circulating in his body.
One revolution, two revolutions, three revolutions...
As the golden body fluid had circulated faster and faster, Luo Yunyang had sensed distinctively that it had already fused into his bloodstream, entered his muscles and flesh, and refined itself in his skin.
By the time it was over, Luo Yunyang felt extremely exhausted. He wanted to get some sleep, but he was so alert that he couldn't fall asleep, no matter how hard he tried.
Chief Instructor Lu's agitated words had made Luo Yunyang decide to walk out. He still didn't know that his use of the golden body fluid was in fact something other people had plotted.
He also didn't know what sort of changes his body would experience after using the golden body fluid. Luo Yunyang opened the attribute regulator in his mind.
Although the increase of his Mind Attribute had exceeded Luo Yunyang's expectations, when he thought about the immense pain he had suffered, he actually felt relieved.
According to his Basic Telekinesis Cultivation Techniques, the more he suffered, the greater his improvement would be. Of course, if he wasn't able to endure the pain, he would collapse.
The existence of a new column below Const.i.tution surprised Luo Yunyang.
Strictly speaking, it wasn't exactly below Const.i.tution, but after it. It was probably a sub effect related to Const.i.tution.
Golden Body: 17
What exactly was this? Could there be some other effects to his Const.i.tution? For example, if his Const.i.tution was currently 76, could 56 be his own and 17 belong to the Golden Body?
As he thought over this, Luo Yunyang took a deep breath. Suddenly, he felt his body's tautness increase immensely. There was also a faint golden l.u.s.ter flickering all over his body.
Could he adjust this Golden Body Attribute?
Luo Yunyang tried to change the number that represented the Golden Body, but he was disappointed to find out that the number wouldn't budge.
Was the attribute regulator broken?
Startled, Luo Yunyang quickly raised his Const.i.tution by 30 points. Right after this change, the Golden Body Attribute, which had originally been at 17, became 24.
Const.i.tution: 106, Golden Body: 24
This change revealed the relationship between Golden Body and Const.i.tution, which was directly proportional. The increase of his Const.i.tution Attribute had led to an increase of the Golden Body Attribute as well.
Although this made sense, its effectiveness was a little dubious. After all, if Const.i.tution was raised too high, then his Power, Speed and Mind would be limited.
Mildly glaring golden rays flickered on Luo Yunyang's body. As he saw them, he felt the impulse to find someone to try this out with.
