14 On the Way to a Taoist Temple

Bai Bing was not prepared to see that Zhao Hao would agree to sign a confidentiality agreement.

She had met a few civilian superpowered people in the past. After she took out these two agreements, none of them chose to sign the confidentiality agreement and live a commoner's life.

Most of them wanted to become stronger and join the Supernatural Special Forces Squad.

Today, Zhao Hao had taught Bai Bing a good lesson.

"What? Can't I sign this?" Seeing Bai Bing's reaction, Zhao Hao asked with a puzzled look.

"..."

Bai Bing was silent for a while. Then, she took the two agreements away quickly and said as she walked out of the door, "Remember the clauses on the confidentiality agreement. Don't break the law. Otherwise, I will personally arrest you."

 "???" Zhao Hao was very confused.

He suddenly thought of something, so he just asked, "When can I leave? I have something urgent to do."

The Cultivation Talent Pane had reset today, but he had not collected any Red Talents yet. If this was the reason why he could not get 10 Red Talents, Zhao Hao promised himself that he would definitely teach Bai Bing a lesson.

Fortunately, Bai Bing was not an unreasonable person. She turned her head and said to Zhao Hao, "I'll arrange for a chauffeur to send you. Just tell him where you want to go."

After saying that, Bai Bing left the office. Apparently, she was going to report Zhao Hao's decision to her superior.

Zhao Hao was speechless. However, it was of course a good thing that they would arrange a private car to send him. Otherwise, he might not be able to find his way home.

After Bai Bing left, the office returned to silence. Zhao Hao immediately wanted to turn on the simulator again, but he found that the cooldown time was not over yet.

So, he could only wait in silence.

A few minutes later, someone knocked on the door.

A soldier came in from outside. After asking, Zhao Hao found out that he was the driver who was supposed to send him back.

Sitting in a military vehicle again, Zhao Hao felt that everything happened too fast. He found it hard to understand why they had dealt with a superpowered person in such a simple way without even finding out what his superpower was.

In fact, Zhao Hao was not overthinking it. China had a huge territory and population. Although superpowered people were one in ten thousand, there would still be at least a hundred thousand of them throughout China.

Therefore, there was a whole set of rules for superpowered people. If Zhao Hao decided to join, he would either be in training or on a mission for the next six months.

However, if he chose to be a commoner and did not do any harm to the society, the government still respected his choice.

Besides, based on Zhao Hao's resume, he was an unambitious otaku. If such a person joined the organization, who knew what kind of trouble he would cause…

These were the reasons why it had been settled in such a short time.

"Hey, man. Where are you going?" The soldier/driver asked Zhao Hao.

Zhao Hao did not know where this place was, but he did not ask for the location. After all, the location of the military base was definitely a secret.

So, he asked, "Is there any famous Taoist temple, Confucian Temple or martial temple nearby?"

Zhao Hao kept holding onto the fact that he had not captured a Red Talent today.

"Mm? There is one, actually. There's a mountain not far away called Mount Gexian, and there's a temple on the mountain. Legend has it that Iron-Crutch Li once washed his feet there, and there's still a huge footprint of his in the temple. Do you want to check it out?"

After hearing this, Zhao Hao's eyes lit up. Although Iron-Crutch Li was only one of the Eight Immortals in the Taoist pantheon, he was still a disciple of a saint and a disciple of the Ren Sect.

There should be some good cultivation talent on him, Zhao Hao thought. So, he quickly nodded and agreed, "Yeah, thanks for the trouble, little brother. Please take me to Mount Gexian."

The soldier was also an easy-going person. He drove the car right away and brought Zhao Hao to Mount Gexian.

"System, activate the Cultivation Simulator."

[To enable the simulation, you may select only three of the following Cultivation Talents.]

Although the soldier said that Mount Gexian was very close, it would still take more than an hour to arrive.

Zhao Hao did not have time to chit-chat with the soldier. He pretended to be sleeping and quietly activated the Cultivation Simulator.

[Currently available Cultivation Talents: "Lucky Man", "Thunder Spiritual Roots", "Child of Wealth", …]

[Mahayana Holy Body (Red Talent): All your basic attributes increase by 300. This is a unique physique that is rarely seen in a million years. It is the strongest sacred body in the martial arts world. Your aptitude to practice all kinds of Cultivation Methods is the world's highest. Your attack power is twice the original attack power.]

[Born Arhat (Red Talent): All your basic attributes increase by 300. You were born an Arhat, a candidate for a Buddha. You can comprehend Buddhist divine skills on your own and cultivate all kinds of Buddhist Cultivation Methods.]

[Child of Wealth (Purple Talent): Your intelligence decreases by 30. You can obtain luck by giving away your wealth.]

With his real-life experience, Zhao Hao knew that he had to have a Cultivation Talent to help him understand the Bloody River Scripture. Otherwise, the cultivation of the Blood River Scripture would be extremely difficult.

Luckily, there was a talent "Thunder Spiritual Roots" in the Cultivation Talent Pane this time.

[The simulation starts now.]

[On the first day, you did not go and steal any cultivation manuals. Instead, you focused on cultivating the Bloody River Scripture at home.]

[On the second day, your cultivation speed was very fast as you had an extraordinary physique and the Thunder Spiritual Roots that was hard to come by even in a hundred thousand people.]

[On the third day, you continued cultivating it.]

[On the fourth day, a bandit attacked the village. You turned him into blood with a single palm strike, and you gave the Iron-Slashing Sword that you obtained from him to a kid by the roadside.]

[On the fifth day, when you were cultivating, you suddenly heard a knock on the door. When you opened the door, you saw that it was an old granny with the kid carrying the Iron-Slashing Sword that you had given to him. The old granny was one of the villagers of this village, Granny Sun. She gave you five medicinal pills and told you that they were Vitality Strengthening Pills that could increase your cultivation speed.]

[On the sixth day, you swallowed a Vitality Strengthening Pill and entered the Foundation Establishment stage.]

[On the seventh day, you swallowed the other four pills and entered the late stage of Foundation Establishment.]

[On the 11th day, you continued cultivating the Bloody River Scripture. You steadily made advanced progress, and you reached the peak of the Foundation Establishment stage.]

[On the 12th day, you learned your lesson from before, so you were not in a hurry to leave. Instead, you kept cultivating and trying to enter a more advanced stage.]

[On the 15th day, a dark cloud suddenly appeared in the sky. You finally broke through the bottleneck at the peak of the Foundation Establishment stage. After going through the Thunder Tribulation, you reached the Core Formation stage.]

[On the 16th day, you began to stabilize your Cultivation Base in a closed-door cultivation in the village.]

[On the 21st day, you successfully mastered the Bloody River Scripture with great success and entered the middle stage of the Core Formation.]

[On the 22nd day, you were cultivating, and you suddenly sensed something. You flew into the depths of the mountain. In an abandoned Cave Estate, you found a high-grade magic sword.]
