Soon, the second inscription was completed.
Su Hao took a look and immediately frowned: “There are five new nodes this time; it seems that the number of nodes is not limited to just this. The good news is that I found three stable nodes.”
Su Hao focused his body and mind on inscribing the animal patterns. As long as his energy was sufficient, he would inscribe the patterns, leaving everything else aside.
He could inscribe at least 20 times a day.
Ten days later.
Little Light (It’s nickname of Pinball Space) received more than two hundred records of inscriptions. After continuous comparison and adjustments, the animal pattern structure now perfectly matched Su Hao’s energy. Even if he were to inscribe it immediately, he would advance directly to become a master warrior.
But he still felt that it wasn’t perfect enough. There were still subtle adjustments that could be made to achieve complete fluency.
To pursue the perfect inscription of the animal pattern was unimaginable for others.
For ordinary people, after at least a year of continuous adjustments and the risk of failing midway through the inscription, they would have lost patience. If they could find a structure that could be barely inscribed successfully, they would undoubtedly solidify it without hesitation and advance to become a master warrior.
This was because not everyone had the capability of Little Light to collect and analyze data. The arduous process of adjusting and experimenting would make many weak-willed individuals give up.
Furthermore, without the guidance of Little Light, like a navigation system for inscription, most people would fail halfway when faced with such a complex pattern. Su Hao adjusted the structure again. After the engraving was completed, he observed the dynamics of the symbols. Each node was repeatedly confirmed to reach a smooth state.
He suddenly frowned: “There is a subtle conflict and repulsion in one of the nodes.”
Immediately, he gave instructions to Little Light: “Pinball Space, analyze node 94 and calculate the adjustment orientation.”
“Calculation successful, node 94 has six possible adjustment methods.”
Su Hao exited the ball space once again and began attempting the engraving.
As he became more skilled with the engraving, his speed greatly increased. Soon, the engraving was successfully completed.
Su Hao re-entered the ball space to observe.
“This won’t work!”
When Su Hao tried the fourth position.
A smooth feeling permeated his whole body. Su Hao immediately exclaimed with joy: “It worked!”
He immediately entered the ball space to observe the state of his body.
The symbols on the inside of his chest cavity and between his spine seemed to merge with his body, incredibly coordinated. With his breathing, the muscles would tremble and sway, as if it was innate.
After carefully observing for a moment, Su Hao found that there were indeed no problems. Finally, he sighed in relief: “This structure is it! I can solidify the imprint.”
After exiting the ball space, he glanced at the slanted sunset outside the window and sincerely sighed: “Advancing to the master level is really difficult! It’s unimaginable how people in this world, without the help of computers, can complete such complex engraving! It can only be said that every master warrior is a pride of humanity.”
“Fortunately, I know programming! Knowledge truly changes fate.” Su Hao’s mood was extremely pleasant at this moment.
However, he still had something more important to do, which was to solidify the imprint.
Su Hao calmed down once again and focused his mind on his body.
With Su Hao’s conscious control, the blood and qi that composed the symbols began to boil, squirming inside his body like worms, pushing aside the surrounding flesh and blood, forming a pattern painted with flesh and blood.
Su Hao ignored the itchiness when the flesh and blood were pushed aside, and followed the process of imprinting step by step: “First, clear the flesh and blood to form the pattern, then quickly gather more blood and qi to fill it. It only needs to be maintained for two days to solidify the symbols.”
When Su Hao filled the symbols formed by the pushed aside flesh and blood with blood and qi, he opened his eyes.
Now, he just needed to wait for two days.
Until this moment, Su Hao finally relaxed: “After ten days of intense work and study, I can finally get a good night’s sleep!”
After saying hello to the administrator, Su Hao left and went straight back to his dormitory to fall asleep.
Two days later, as the blood and flesh symbols in his body solidified, he also began to undergo a transformation.The “perception rune” in the body underwent subtle changes. Each node grew small organ-like protrusions that connected the runes with the flesh, merging them together like neural junctions.
Through the magical connection with the body, the “perception rune” linked the nine palaces and established a connection with the blood and qi within them. This allowed the nine palaces distributed throughout the body to form a complete network, with the runes serving as the hub.
The blood and qi in the entire body also connected through this network, forming a unified whole.
The function of this network extended far beyond this. As time passed, it would become a massive reservoir of blood and qi, capable of containing a vast quantity.
The difference between what Old Liu and Su Hao had previously mentioned, about a bucket of water and a flowing river, was not an exaggeration in the slightest.
If Su Hao’s previously stored blood and qi in the nine palaces could be likened to a bucket, then the newly formed network could contain the amount of a river.
But in this network capable of containing a river’s worth of blood and qi, there was currently only a bucket’s worth.
This made Su Hao feel as if his entire body was hollow, once again experiencing “weakness” and “desire”.
The attribute of this rune was perception, which greatly enhanced perception abilities. However, Su Hao currently hadn’t noticed any significant improvement in his perception.
It was speculated that this was because the transformation of the blood and qi had just begun. Either that, or the quantity of blood and qi was too little, requiring him to completely replenish the dried-up river in his body, reaching the level of ‘surging and ferocious” that Old Liu had mentioned, in order to bring about obvious changes.
“Then, the next step is to quickly convert the blood and qi!” Su Hao had a new goal.
Half a month later.
Su Hao, seated on the ground, opened his eyes and felt the blood and qi he had only half replenished. He couldn’t help but be speechless, “In this half month, I’ve been efficiently converting blood and qi every moment, yet I’ve only replenished half? My efficiency is already quite fast. How long would other cultivators need to fully replenish their blood and qi? It’s probably over half a year!”
However, Su Hao overlooked a very important factor.
That was the difference between his rune network and those of others.
When he was inscribing the runes, he strived for perfection, ensuring that every part of the runes flowed naturally, without the slightest hitch.
With perfectly inscribed runes like these, they naturally had the ability to contain a very large amount of blood and qi.
On the other hand, when others inscribed their runes, as long as they operated normally, the requirements weren’t high. As a result, their constructed rune networks weren’t as complete, their capacity for blood and qi wasn’t as much, and the effectiveness of the attributes would be greatly reduced.
If the blood and qi capacity other Grandmasters could contain was likened to a pond, then the capacity Su Hao’s body could contain could be likened to a lake. The two were simply not in the same dimension.
This was the impact of high technology on primitive society, a dimensional impact.
In other words, he didn’t need to worry about other people taking too long to convert their blood and qi. What he needed to worry about was himself.
Su Hao habitually entered the bounce space.
“Age: 10 years and 5 months;

Variable control: Qi Enhancement Function (proficient), ……”
Apart from a surge of qi, there were no other changes.
He checked the log again.
“On the 13th day of July in the year 1532656, there are no new tasks for “The Light of the Universe 2.3”;
Physical condition: healthy, no abnormalities;
“Sensing” rune monitoring is functioning normally, no abnormalities;

Suddenly, a certain entry caught his attention, leaving him stunned.
“Tomorrow and the day after tomorrow will be the two-day Annual Grand Competition, followed by a break.”
Time indeed flies!
