Please, I Really Didn’t Want To Fall in Love With My Master! - Chapter 77
Chapter 77: Ancestor’s Test, Bloodline Awakening!
Li Ran understood.
No wonder the ancestor didn’t respond. So it was all a test!
He carefully observed the enormous stone door in front of him.
The gate was made up of an entire boulder, without any traces of splicing. The intricate lines along the door seemed to be naturally formed.
There was only one spot that could hold a few fingers.
“Open it with my own strength…” Li Ran pondered for a moment. He gathered qi into his palm as he tried to suck the stone door out.
However, the qi was like an ox entering the sea, unable to turn over a single drop of water.
Even though he had used a Daoist technique, the stone door did not budge at all. It was as if all his qi was devoured.
Inside the stone door…
When the Old Master caught sight of this, he was stunned. “What is this kid doing? Don’t tell me he wants to open the door by himself!”
This wasn’t an ordinary stone door. The door was entirely made up of Demon Suppressing Stone.
Demon Suppressing Stones were extremely rare, with the ability to suppress demons. As long as the demon’s strength did not exceed the tribulation stage, all Daoist arts, and divine abilities would be rendered ineffective.
If he wanted to open the door, he could only rely on his pure physical ability.
However, this boulder weighed over hundreds of thousands of kilograms. Who would have such strength?
The ancestor stroked his beard and shook his head. “Hehe, it’s just a good chance to give this kid a show of strength! Leng Wuyan, I can’t beat you, but I can beat your disciple.”
He was both happy and relieved.
On the other side of the door, Li Ran studied the door for a long time before confirming that he could not open the door with the Daoist technique.
It seemed like he could only use his physical strength to open it.
He grabbed the groove and pulled, but the stone door remained motionless.
“It’s indeed worthy of being the ancestor’s test. It’s difficult!” Li Ran exhaled and focused. His muscles tightened as he forcefully pulled the door.
However, just relying on pure power alone wasn’t enough to shake this heavy boulder.
When the ancestor saw this, he smiled smugly. “A mere Golden Core Realm cultivator wants to move this Demon Suppressing Stone? That’s simply crazy… Ah?!”
The next scene left him frozen.
Li Ran’s eyes started emitting divine light.
His muscles started bulging at which his clothes were torn and his body was covered with golden divine patterns.
Roots appeared under his feet and Li Ran exhaled. “Open!”
With a loud boom, the stone door was slowly opened!
The ancestor’s eyes narrowed. “What kind of cultivation technique is this? How could it ignore the Demon Suppressing Stone’s suppressing might?”
Li Ran’s eyes were grave.
His right hand lit up with golden flame, instantaneously lighting his entire body like a humanoid torch.
“H-heavenly Flame? This is… the Burning Heaven Sacred Flame?!”
“Open up!!!” Li Ran’s voice was like thunder, his strength pressed down like a dragon.
With the support of the Burning Heaven Sacred Flame, his bloodstream surged like a river, and his body became steaming hot!
Boom boom boom!
The stone door was opened with a rumble, and the gap grew larger and larger.
The bricks beneath his feet shattered with a bang, and the entire secret ground began to shake. Countless tiny stones fell down!
Following the final explosion, the entire secret ground fell silent.
The huge stone door was pulled to a right angle of ninety degrees. Li Ran and the ancestor looked at each other in dismay.
The Ancestor looked at the muscular man in front of him and his eyes trembled. “You’re really energetic like a horse…”
Li Ran’s body was still covered in wisps of white smoke. He raised his thumbs up and said, “Ancestor’s test is indeed extraordinary. I almost failed.”
“…Who said I’m testing you?”
“When you leave, close the door for me.”
Li Ran put on his clothes and sat in the pavilion, curiously examining his surroundings.
Unexpectedly, such a strange secret realm was hidden behind the ancestral hall of the Li Family.
The greenery was present everywhere. The occasional breeze brought in the fragrance of grass and the sun stood blazing in the clear-as-water sky.
One had to understand that this place was located underground!
It was clearly an independent space similar to a secret realm.
The Ancestor sat opposite him, squinting at Li Ran.
“The monster’s disciple is indeed a monster… no, he’s still my descendant. Wouldn’t I be scolding myself as well?”
The Ancestor cleared his throat. “You’re Li Ran, right?”
“Yes, Ancestor,” Li Ran responded.
“Where did the golden cultivation technique you used just now and the Burning Heaven Sacred Flame come from?” the ancestor asked.
Li Ran replied, “From the secret realm.”
In any case, if it wasn’t reasonable, he would just say it was from the secret realm. As long as he didn’t expose the existence of the system, everything was good.
The Ancestor stroked his beard. “I didn’t expect that you would actually have such an opportunity to obtain the Burning Heaven Emperor’s inheritance… That golden cultivation technique is extremely strange. Even this old man is unable to see through it. As expected of an Ancient Immortal Emperor’s inheritance.”
In his eyes, the Heaven Seizing Technique was even more bizarre than the Burning Heaven Sacred Flame.
This caused him to fall into deep thought.
Li Ran took this opportunity to open the system to check the reward.
【Degree of Completion: Perfect】
【Obtained Super Treasure Chest x1】
He immediately opened the treasure chest.
【Congratulations to the host for obtaining the ability “Bloodline Awakening”.】
The “Bloodline Awakening” is a pretty simple ability to understand: to awaken to the power of one’s bloodline.
“Mysterious…” Li Ran scratched his head. “Could it be that there is something else within the Li Family’s bloodline?”
“Grandson, how has your master been lately? Is she still so violent?”
For some reason, Li Ran felt that the Ancestor was scolding him. Although he was indeed his grandson…
“Ancestor, Master is still so gentle,” Li Ran replied.
The old ancestor puffed his beard and glared at him. “Leng Wuyan and gentleness are the opposite of each other! That madwoman, always holding the sword and shouting to kill people, if it weren’t that I… He paused and swallowed the ‘I can’t beat her” back into his throat.”
Li Ran felt a little helpless.
Master was indeed gentle and cute. Why did no one believe him?
The Ancestor suddenly asked, “When you cultivated with Leng Wuyan, did she ever bully you?”
Li Ran shook his head. “No, Master treats me very well.”
“She was very good to you? Who are you fooling?”
The Ancestor sneered, then said with helplessness, “That’s true. Even if she abused you, you wouldn’t dare to speak of it… If she dares bully you again…”
Li Ran asked, “I’ll tell her ancestor’s name?”
The Ancestor replied, “Just bear with it.”
“……” Li Ran felt that the ancestor had been abused by Leng Wuyan…
The Ancestor sighed. “Ai, if it wasn’t for my Li Family’s bloodline becoming thinner and thinner, would the younger generation still need to take someone else as their master?”
“Bloodline?” Li Ran asked curiously, “Is our Li family’s bloodline very powerful?”
“Not only is our bloodline very prestigious, but we are also the descendants of Immortal Emperors. We were truly a large clan! It was just that our clan had declined.”
The Ancestor waved his hand in a moody manner.
“After so many years, there isn’t a single one who can awaken their bloodline. My hope will only grow dimmer and dimmer…”
He was stunned in mid-sentence as he stared at Li Ran in shock.
At this moment, Li Ran’s body was emitting a faint red light, even his eyes turned deep red.
“By Bloodline Awakening, do you mean this?” Li Ran tilted his head and asked.
The Ancestor: “…”
