Legendary Armament Canon - Chapter 228
Chapter 228 First-rank Martial Artist, The Return of the God of War (2)
Zhou Shu heard a light noise. He saw a pained expression appear on Meng Bai’s face, and then his body twisted, as if he couldn’t bear the burden.
Zhou Shu frowned slightly. Although his strength was not weaker than any first-rank martial artist, his spiritual essence cultivation was far from the first rank.
He didn’t know what it was like for martial artists to break through from the second rank to the first rank.
Judging from Meng Bai’s current situation, was it the right choice for him to take the pill?
Zhou Shu didn’t dare to interfere rashly. If he affected Meng Bai’s breakthrough, then it would be too late for regrets. Only the first Breakthrough Pill was effective.
Melodious sounds rang continuously. Meng Bai’s body seemed to have been reconstructed by the spiritual qi of heaven and earth. Even with Meng Bai’s willpower, he couldn’t help releasing a suppressed low roar due to the tremendous pain.
At this moment, in Great Qin’s imperial palace, the Qin emperor suddenly raised his head and looked in the direction of the post house where Great Xia’s diplomatic mission was.
“Who is breaking through to the first rank?” the Qin emperor said in a low voice.
“I don’t know,” a minister replied. “That direction is where Zuo Shuzhang’s residence is. Zuo Shuzhang’s cultivation is already at the peak of the second rank. Did he break through?”
Joy flashed across the Qin emperor’s eyes. If Great Qin could have one more first-rank expert, the pressure on Great Qin would be greatly reduced.
“Let’s go and congratulate Zuo Shuzhang.”
The Qin emperor revealed a rare smile.
The Qin Emperor brought a few trusted ministers and headed toward Zuo Shuzhang’s residence.
“Ah!” Blood gushed out from all the pores on Meng Bai’s body, covering his entire body in blood.
The blood was reddish black and emitted a foul stench.
“Great General!” Meng Bai’s guard shouted loudly, his face full of panic.
“Shut up!” Zhou Shu shouted. “If you don’t want to kill the great general, then stop shouting!”
The guard’s expression changed. He struggled for a moment and swallowed the words about to come out of his mouth.
He was no fool. He could already vaguely guess what had happened. But deep down, he found it hard to believe.
It was too unbelievable.
The great general had visited all the famous doctors in the world but was unable to cure his injuries. But the You Marquis was able to cure him with a single medicinal pill?
Not only did his injuries heal, but it seemed like the great general was about to make a breakthrough as well?
The great general was a second-rank expert back then. If he broke through…
The guard’s eyes were full of surprise and joy as he involuntarily looked at Zhou Shu.
What kind of pill was it?
Zhou Shu glanced at him coldly. This glance made him feel as if he had been struck by lightning, and he instantly sobered up.
No matter what kind of medicinal pill it was, it was not something he should be tempted
I saw nothing. I know nothing. I have no idea how the great general recovered from his injuries! the guard thought.
Zhou Shu no longer paid him any attention, and his gaze returned to Meng Bai’s body.
Meng Bai clenched his fists tightly, and in the end, he growled in pain.
This situation continued for some time before he slowly stopped growling.
The pain on his face subsided and was replaced by relief.
At this moment, he still didn’t open his eyes.
The spiritual qi of heaven and earth was still pouring into his body endlessly.
His aura rose rapidly too.
Zhou Shu heaved a sigh of relief. From the looks of it, Meng Bai should have passed the dangerous period and officially begun to break through.
The Breakthrough Pill was indeed effective!
Meng Bai broke through to the first rank and underwent a rebirth. His old injuries naturally healed without any medicine.
An intense storm spread out from Meng Bai.
Zhou Shu retreated until he reached the door.
Meng Bai breaking through was a good thing, but his body full of filthy blood really was too smelly!
Zhou Shu turned around and left the room.
People were already standing outside the door.
How could such a huge commotion not alarm the people of Great Xia?

Yin Wuyou, Lu Wenshuang, Chen Ji, Shi Songtao, and the others all came to Meng Bai’s door.
When everyone saw Zhou Shu come out, their gazes landed on him.
“What happened?” Yin Wuyou was the first to speak.
“The great general has recovered from his injuries, and his cultivation has risen to another level.” Zhou Shu smiled. “Everyone, don’t be nervous. It’s a good thing.”
“The great general has recovered from his injuries?” Yin Wuyou was startled.
She was the one who knew Meng Bai’s condition the best. In the past decade or so, for Meng Bai’s injuries, Emperor Yuan Feng had approached countless doctors.
But none of them had been able to treat the great general. How did his injuries suddenly recover?
“Who cured the great general?” Yin Wuyou asked.
Yin Wuyou understood her father. Although many people said that Great General Meng retired because his achievements were too great, Emperor Yuan Feng had never doubted Meng Bai. He sincerely wanted Meng Bai to recover.
Now that someone had cured Great General Meng, if her father knew, he would definitely reward him heavily.
“I don’t know. Ask Great General Meng yourself later.” Zhou Shu shrugged.
Apart from Meng Bai, only the guard knew that he had given Meng Bai a medicinal pill.
Zhou Shu was certain that Meng Bai wouldn’t betray him. As for the guard, since Meng Bai had him by his side, he should be able to trust him.
In any case, the reason Meng Bai came to Great Qin this time was to seek medical treatment. His injuries completely recovered, which meant he found a famous doctor…
Meanwhile, the Qin emperor and his entourage arrived at Zuo Shuzhang’s residence.
“Greetings, Your Majesty.” Zuo Shuzhang bowed to the Qin emperor in surprise.
The Qin emperor frowned slightly. “Zuo Shuzhang, didn’t you break through to the first rank?”
He could tell at a glance that Zuo Shuzhang’s cultivation level was clearly at the second rank.
“I am incompetent.” Zuo Shuzhang said.
“It has nothing to do with you.” The Qin emperor waved his hand and looked up.
The commotion from the breakthrough had already disappeared, which meant that the advancement had ended.
“Which other second-rank martial artist lives here?” The Qin emperor raised his finger and pointed.
The officials looked at each other and shook their heads.
“Your Majesty, that’s the post house where the Great Xia diplomatic mission resides. Among them, there are second-rank martial artists…” Xu Shi said softly.
“Mm?” The Qin emperor frowned.
“Great Xia’s Princess Wuyou revealed her cultivation base a few days ago. She is at the second rank,” Xu Shi continued.
“She was the one who broke through?” The Qin emperor frowned. That old fellow Emperor Yuan Feng doesn’t have much talent in the Martial Dao, but he has a daughter who is a Martial Dao genius!
On the other hand, he had been a great man all his life, but his sons were all useless!
“I don’t think so.” Xu Shi shook his head. “She should have just broken through to the second rank. I’ve seen her fight before. She’s still far from the first rank.”
“What do you mean?” the Qin emperor said unhappily.
“There is another second-rank martial artist in the Great Xia diplomatic mission,” Xu Shi said softly. “Meng Bai.”
“Meng Bai?” The Qin emperor frowned.
Yin Wuyou was only a junior, so the Qin emperor didn’t pay much attention to her.
But the name Meng Bai didn’t need a prefix.
Everyone knew who Meng Bai was.
Meng Bai, that Meng Bai.
Great Xia’s God of War Meng Bai!
“Didn’t he lose his cultivation due to his injuries?” The Qin emperor frowned.
“It’s like this. When I visited him previously, he was already on the verge of death and didn’t seem to be faking it,” General Wang Mu said.
They were both commanders-in-chief of the military, but Wang Mu and Meng Bai were considered enemies and friends. Like knew
Back when Meng Bai first arrived in Great Qin’s capital, Wang Mu had visited him.
After seeing Meng Bai’s situation, he even sighed with emotion for many days. When he saw his old opponent become like this, not only was he not happy, but he instead felt endless sorrow.
“Let’s go and take a look at the Great Xia diplomatic mission!” the Qin emperor said after pondering for a moment. “Previously, the Great Xia diplomatic mission helped us, and I have yet to thank them personally!”
The eyes of the Qin emperor flickered.
It was naturally a joyous occasion for someone to break through to become a first-rank expert in Great Qin’s capital.
But if it was an outsider, it would not be a joyous occasion.
And if this outsider was Great Xia’s God of War, it would be far from a joyous occasion!
