Urban Martial Arts System - Chapter 13
“Director Zheng, are you okay?” Fu Xueyi hurriedly supported Director Zheng.
Director Zheng took a breath and finally recovered. “It’s over. How did Young Master Zhou choose martial arts? The Zhou family is so powerful. Isn’t it impossible that they don’t have any good skill?” Director Zheng only tasted bitterness in his mouth.
“Hahahaha, the sins committed by heaven can be forgiven, but the sins committed by yourself cannot. Zhou Ping actually chose martial arts. He is bound to die!” Unlike Director Zheng’s bitter look, Li Xiaoyi felt like she could fly.
“Zhou Ping, Zhou Ping, don’t worry. Even if you die, I won’t give up the ten billion. Hahahaha…”
“Crazy woman! If anything happens to my son, you will be buried with him.” A man and a woman walked in strides. It was Zhou Ping’s parents, Zhou Guorong and Liu Ting.
“Mayor Zhou!” When Director Zheng saw Zhou Guorong, he quickly straightened up.
“Director Zheng.” Zhou Guorong nodded. “We saw Director Zheng’s performance with our eyes. Don’t worry, the Zhou family never treat our friends badly.”
Hearing Zhou Guorong’s words, Director Zheng felt his blood pressure increase. Can I actually become a “friend of the Zhou family”? With this status, being the director of a municipal martial arts bureau is a fart!
“You are Li Xiaoyi?” While Zhou Guorong was dealing with Director Zheng, Liu Ting looked at Li Xiaoyi. “I have heard about your bet with my son. Now, I can tell you with certainty that no matter what the result of this breaking through, Qingyang University will definitely admit him. You still have some time to think about how to fulfill your bet with him,” Liu Ting told Li Xiaoyi.
“You… you are using your power to bully others!” Li Xiaoyi refuted in a nonchalant tone.
“Using our power to bully people? Haha, could it be that my son forced you to bet against him?” Liu Ting frowned and bluntly asked Li Xiaori.
Li Xiaoyi was at a loss for words. After all, it was her greed that made her accept the bet.
“If not, what are you complaining for? I can only say that you are too naive to do things without considering the consequences. Now that you are in trouble, you want to get out of it.
“Of course, you can not fulfill your bet with my son…” Liu Ting smiled lightly.
Just as Li Xiaoyi was about to breathe a sigh of relief, Liu Ting continued, “However, sometimes you may not consider it for yourself, but you should also consider your family.”
When she said this, Li Xiaoyi’s expression suddenly turned hopeless.
At that moment, she really regretted it. Before that, she only knew that the Zhou family was powerful, but she never knew how powerful it was. She saw how the director of the Martial Arts Bureau treated Zhou Ping with respect, as well as how Qingyang University, which was unattainable in her eyes, compromised. She realized how ridiculous her previous thoughts were.
Her father was just a small local official. Although her mother had a small business company, it was not worth mentioning compared to a behemoth like the Zhou family.
If the Zhou family really decided to make a move, the consequences would be hard to imagine.
Li Xiaoyi was really frightened. After knowing that her destiny could not be changed, she could only tremble beside her, unable to speak a word.
Zhou Ping naturally knew nothing about everything that was happening outside. At this time, Zhou Ping was reading ‘Flying on the Grass.’
“Ding… The skill ‘Flying on the Grass’ is detected, do you want to optimize it?” said the system after Zhou Ping finished reading.
“Optimization initiated… Optimization ends.” The speed of optimization was still fast. “As a result, ‘Flying on the Grass’ was optimized to ‘A Reed Crossing the River.’” A stream of consciousness came to Zhou Ping’s mind.
“’A Reed Crossing the River’ is divided into four layers. After training, you can cross rivers and lakes with the help of a reed.”
“Originally, my ‘God-level Iron Shirt’ gave me copper skin and iron bones. Those alloy swords were broken by the shock when they tried to cut my body. But my lightness skill was a shortcoming. A Reed Crossing the River can make up for my shortcomings in lightness.”
“Ding… Does the host want to use promotion value to promote this technique.”
“Promote ‘A Reed Crossing the River’ to the highest level.”
“There are four levels in this promotion. From the first level to the fourth level, you need: 5 points, 10 points, 15 points, and 25 points. A total of 55 points. Do you confirm the promotion?”
As soon as Zhou Ping said that, he felt a shock in his entire body. Then… it was gone.
“It’s over? Why didn’t I feel comfortable this time?” Zhou Ping raised his hand in confusion, only to see that his skin had become more delicate and fairer. “Hey, hey, how come it made me more beautiful?” Zhou Ping couldn’t help but vomit.
After finishing his cultivation, Zhou Ping also decided to start breaking through. But before breaking through the barriers, Zhou Ping still needed to verify one thing.
Step by step, he walked to the side of the pool, and as expected, the entire pool had strong attraction. The attraction was so strong that even a bird could fly within five meters above the water.
“With such a strong attraction, it is not easy to step on the pieces of wood!” The pieces of wood in the corner were so obvious that anyone who was not a fool would realize it was the key to passing.
Although the attraction of the weak water in the pool was strong, it was nothing to Zhou Ping. To Zhou Ping’s surprise, the water in the pool was only about one meter deep. Within the weak water, countless black shadows, which were half a foot long, shuttled quickly.
“These shadows should be the Irontooths.”
Zhou Ping squatted by the pool and put a finger into the weak water. Suddenly, several Irontooths quickly came.
Zhou Ping did not dodge, letting an Irontooth bite his finger.
Several Irontoots went for Zhou Ping’s fingers, but instead of breaking Zhou Ping’s skin, their teeth were broken. Knowing that Zhou Ping was not easy to mess with, the Irontooths quickly swam away.
“As I thought, the Irontooths can’t bite through my skin. The effect of ‘God-level Iron Shirt’ is really strong. Now that I have a peerless lightness skill, this level should be easy.”
Zhou Ping smiled.
