Cultivating the Cosmos - Chapter 7-Skin Reconstruction/Healing Star
I was sitting down, today the moon was not visible and the sun was already in deep slumber, i was sitting in a lonley dark hill far away from my usual spot, grass as tall as an average man surrounded me. I got in the normal meditation position and in my hands held pieces of hard metal with scorching hot tips. normally one would never attampt what i was going to do, absorbing a two elemental Item would only be okay depending on the elements and their strengths, however Metal Ki was difficult to absorbe, and if occompanied by schorching fire Ki even if one was succesfull it would leave behind to much damage. However i had a plan, and even if i didn’t i would do it anyway, i had no choice, i felt too weak, that guy was only at the bone forging realm yet with his strength he could probobly destroy a small hill in a single blow. I felt Jelousy, and yearned for strength, Unlike my previous life I will do what i want when i want and nobody would try to stop me, I want the strength to tremple everyone.
Right now the problem im facing is absorbing Ki into my body, since it strongly rejects me, but recently i discovered something, once Ki enters my matrix and is processed by the radiation of my star, it changes into a new energy, the element is Kept along with its properties but it is basically a new energy that only responds to me as how Ki only responds to the heavens. I realized my star itself was actually made of it, ying and yang is riped into primal energy in the center of my star, and then when it surfaces it it becomes Ki again, but since it is ki not created by the heavens but by me it only responds to me, I call it Qi.
I also realized my strange ability to control it, even when its in the form of radiation, i can expell it from any place in my body, i actually tried to use it to temper my body but something scary almost happened, my star lost too much energy and became unstable, im not sure if it would become a differant type of star like that or go supernova, so i was really scared, luckily i was able to slowly recover the Qi, But how did i create more Qi? by eating? NO! my body actually has a very thin gravitational aura which only affects energy right now, i managed to manifest it when i “zoomed” completely into my star, now that im able to handle the radiation.’Small amounts of Ki in the air was forcefully absorbed by me into my body and into my matrix, then processed into Qi and used to recover my star’s energy. I now realize that to temper my body with the current amount of stars is not enough, but i dont have time to make more stars, the star i have already took probobly ten years to form, therefore I figured a simple way to finally begin my road to cultivation.
Using my Qi Radiation, I cause the Two Ki’s in metal roots/vines to seperate, I quickly activated my gravitational field and absorbed the two energys, as they forcefully enter thorugh my skin covering my belly into my Matrix i felt an imense pain, shoot throughout my lower body and the Ki finally settled inside my matrix, it slowly headed to my star where it began the process of being deconstructed and reconstructed into Qi, however this time i do not allow my the energies to merge with the existing energies in my star, and instead expel them from my star, forming a large metallic cloud, to my surprise the fire and metal Ki’s merged creating a new Qi which i call Steel Qi.
I then control the Steel Qi in my matrix and send it to my Skin, I grit my teeth in anticipation, and just how i expected my skin started bubbling as if it were boiling, a metalic luster invaded the cell walls of my various types of skin cells, the Skin cells gradually gained a new layer of cell walls and support strucures composed of Steel Qi, all while I endured agonizing pain, all my hair then fell out and my already dark red skin started releasing vapor, I felt like a plastic water bottle filled with boiling water, and my skin was an obstruction stoping the water vapor from escaping, but suddenly my skin felt very soft and as if the plastic walls were finally to soft to stop the vapor.
My skin litterally exploded and was vaporized into thin air, below there was a new scorching layer of skin, but unlike a xianxia when you break through ki does not rush in and heal it, my skin was still scorching, but this time it was many times harder than normal skin, it would take alot of force for a normal knife to injure it.
Now it’s time for my stars power to manifest itself.
I finally named the Star type: Healing Star, why did i named it that?
Well because my Star was composed mainly of Water,Nature and Neutral Ki which I subconsciously gathered since I was little, and as one would expect it has healing properties. That was the main reason why i could not use it to temper my skin.
I named the radiation released by It:Healing Star Qi
I start releasing the Healing Star Qi to heal my skin, after four hours my skin finally feels great. I start streaching it and poking it, impresed by it since it felt and streched like skin yet when I flexed it became harder than leather. I let some Healing Star Qi permeate my body and indulging in the great feeling of increase in strength.
”hahaha” I finally took my first step in cultivation, but…. what should i do next?
I need to get stronger to have my revenge, and its going to be difficult without resources, im going to escape and go to a sect…but the only nearby sect is the joyous sect.
