===021 Advanced Ordinary Warrior===
Through the chatter of the three kids, the surrounding soldiers roughly understood what had happened. Then, they looked at Su Hao with strange eyes, unable to believe it and still doubting if it was true.
Su Hao looked at his father Wu Yuntian for help, but Wu Yuntian just furrowed his brow, lost in thought.
He could only awkwardly explain, “Don’t listen to what Qingqing and the others say. It was just because of good luck that I managed to kill the wolf. When the wolf pounced on me just now, it seemed to stumble a little, and in that critical moment, I didn’t know where I found the courage to swing the knife randomly. I didn’t expect to actually kill the wolf.”
For a four or five-year-old child to independently defeat a strong grassland wolf was too incredible for everyone. But if luck was involved, it was different. Killing the wolf relied completely on luck, and everyone could accept that.
It seemed that all the soldiers agreed with Su Hao’s explanation.
“You’re lying!” He Qingqing immediately shouted after Su Hao finished speaking.
He Jianyong immediately stepped forward and pulled He Qingqing away, saying, “Qingqing, don’t speak. It’s still dangerous here. Lv Gao, you take these kids back first!”
After saying that, he led the soldiers to search the village to see if there were any remaining grassland wolves.
The incident quickly passed, and the story of Su Hao single-handedly killing a green-eyed grassland wolf spread in the village. They believed that there was some luck involved in Su Hao’s feat, but even with luck, not everyone could kill a grassland wolf.
It’s important to note that the average strength of an adult grassland wolf was at the level of an advanced ordinary warrior. The fact that Su Hao was able to kill one showed that he also had some strength. His reputation as a talented warrior also spread in Chashan Outpost.
“Father, now everyone in Chashan Outpost knows that I have started martial arts training. Is this okay?”
Afterwards, Su Hao was still somewhat worried. He was not unfamiliar with the saying, “A tree that stands tallest is often the first one to be destroyed.” He knew that this world was different from his previous life. There was no perfect legal system, so the more talented a person was, the more likely they would be jealous and in danger.
But to be honest, he smoothly got through the crisis, which made him breathe a sigh of relief. He knew that he had a certain ability to protect himself, and there would be fewer and fewer accidents that could threaten him.
Wu Yuntian glanced inexplicably at Su Hao, shook his head, and said, “This is Chashan Outpost, there aren’t that many troublesome matters. Don’t worry!”
Then he turned around and looked at Su Hao seriously, asking, “Xiangwu, tell me honestly, what level are you at now?”
Su Hao himself wasn’t sure about his current situation, so he stated his speculation, “I should have reached the limit that my body can bear in terms of blood energy. If I continue to increase my blood energy, it might be harmful to my body.”
“Is that so?”
“You shouldn’t have logically been able to increase your blood energy so quickly. Could it be because of the ‘Blood Qi Enhancement Wave’?”
Su Hao nodded and said, “It should be. I can also feel the bottleneck in the concentration of blood energy that father mentioned. But I just made a slight modification to the frequency of the ‘Blood Qi Enhancement Wave,’ and the bottleneck naturally broke through.”
Wu Yuntian’s heart skipped a beat. He was speechless. The blood energy bottleneck that had been causing everyone so much headache was effortlessly broken through by his own son’s ‘Blood Qi Enhancement Wave.’
He had been stuck at the position of a high-level elite warrior for five years, and breaking through the quantity of blood energy had become incredibly difficult. In such cases, it usually required intense battles for there to be a chance of breaking through.
A year ago, when he heard his son mention the ‘Blood Qi Enhancement Wave,’ his dormant heart came to life. He tried hard to find this so-called ‘Blood Qi Enhancement Wave,’ but no matter how hard he tried, he made no progress, which made him feel frustrated. Truly, in the world of geniuses, ordinary people couldn’t understand.
Until now, he still only occasionally tried and didn’t hold much hope in actually finding the ‘Blood Qi Enhancement Wave.’
Su Hao expressed helplessness in this regard. The special substance called the ‘Blood Qi Enhancement Wave’ indeed existed, but normal people couldn’t detect its presence.
It was like how everyone knows that when humans encounter dangerous situations, adrenaline is secreted. However, apart from knowing that adrenaline is secreted by the adrenal glands, the conscious brain cannot perceive the existence or amount of this hormone.
Su Hao only managed to discover his own ‘Blood Qi Enhancement Wave’ through the powerful data analysis ability of Pinball Space. He was unable to find the ‘Blood Qi Enhancement Wave’ of others. It could only be said that he was the most special case, using high-tech means to analyze the original principles. For Wu Yuntian, it was beyond his comprehension, like being attacked from a different dimension.
Unless Su Hao’s understanding of blood energy and the special substance, the ‘Blood Qi Enhancement Wave,’ continued to deepen, thereby summarizing a simple method to control the ‘Blood Qi Enhancement Wave,’ it would be possible to teach it to the people of this world.
“Xiangwu, come with me to the courtyard,” Wu Yuntian stood up and walked outside.
Su Hao nodded and followed.
Wu Yuntian extended his palm towards Su Hao and said, “Throw a punch at my palm with full strength.”
“Okay,” Su Hao responded. He walked in front of Wu Yuntian, standing firmly and gathering his energy. The blood energy in his body instantly boiled, and a large amount of energy converted within him. Stepping forward, he threw a punch that hit the center of his palm.
The fist and palm collided with a crisp sound. Wu Yuntian remained motionless, retracting his palm, while Su Hao was pushed back a few steps by the recoil force.
“Father is so powerful!” Su Hao liked praising people, whether it was to their face or behind their back, excluding bratty kids.
Wu Yuntian forced a smile and shook his head. However, Su Hao didn’t see his trembling hand that he had hidden behind his back. Su Hao’s punch had caused his palm to go numb.
Wu Yuntian calmly said, “Your strength has reached the level of a high-level ordinary warrior.”
Su Hao asked in confusion, “High-level ordinary warrior?”
Wu Yuntian explained, “That’s right. Warriors are divided into five levels. The lowest is the ordinary warrior, followed by elite warriors, master warriors, grandmaster warriors, and the highest level, the Ancestral Path warriors. Each level of warrior is further divided into three stages: beginner, intermediate, and advanced. Your strength has reached the advanced stage of the high-level ordinary warrior.”
“And now I am an advanced elite warrior.”
Su Hao nodded and asked, “I see. How long does it usually take for an average person to become an advanced ordinary warrior?”
Wu Yuntian helplessly replied, “Ordinary people cannot comprehend the existence of qi, so they cannot become warriors in the first place. If you want to know the average level of warriors, then to reach the level of an advanced ordinary warrior, it generally takes around 16 years. Those who show talent before the age of 16 are considered to be quite gifted, but it is considered late if it happens after 16.”
Su Hao paused for a moment and pointed at himself, “Then what am I considered?”
Wu Yuntian stared at Su Hao for a long time, but couldn’t say a word.
After a while, Wu Yuntian changed the topic and said, “Xiangwu, since you have reached this level, I don’t have much to worry about. I believe you should already have an idea of how to proceed. Let me tell you now, about the path of a warrior and how you should walk it in the future.”
After a moment of silence, he continued, “There’s not much I can teach you. How far you can go in the future depends entirely on you.”
“Mhm!” Su Hao nodded firmly.
