Chapter 781: The vicissitudes of life

“What do you want?” The big elder stared at Su Hao vigilantly.
Ever since he got tricked by Su Hao, the big elder, who has always been carefree, suddenly became extremely shrewd.
To learn an origin technique? That’s negotiable. As for origin energy, don’t even think about it! There’s no way. It’s not like the big elder doesn’t want to give some, but Su Hao’s consumption is off the charts! Based on the way he cultivates, forget about reaching the world realm, when he reaches the domain realm, the entire Su family will turn poor!
“Big elder, I am not a bad person. Why are you being so vigilant?” Su Hao smiled awkwardly.
The big elder stared at him coldly. What’s left was to write these two words, ‘bad person’ on his face.
“F*ck!” Su Hao noticed that this soft approach wasn’t working and decisively went for… an even softer approach, “Well, Big elder. Think about this, the plan this time, even if I am not to claim credit, at least I had worked hard on it. If not because of me, our Su family will definitely be in deep trouble later. If not for my deed in identifying those three elders, shouldn’t I be given a chance?”
The big elder thought for a moment, and he eased up.
Indeed, even he thought that the problems in the Su family were very serious. However, he still remained wary, “What do you want? I will be frank, there is no energy recovery drug. Not even a chance for us to part with any. Previously, when we helped you breakthrough, those elders literally went back home to recover for a month!”
“Do I look like such a person?” Su Hao used his righteous tone, “How could I let the fellow elders suffer? Last time, it was an accident. After all, this is the first time I am training in the physical route.”
The big elder nodded.
That was true or else, Su Hao would not ask them so many times.
“Then, what do you want?” The big elder thoroughly relaxed and sighed, “Although you’re the Clan Head, the family resources still need to be distributed in a controlled manner. After all, you still need to be responsible for our over one thousand disciples here.”
“Of course.” Su Hao thought for a bit as if he was pondering, “Big elder, I want to go energy warehouse no.1.”
“Energy warehouse no.1?” The big elder’s large pupil suddenly shrunk.
The Su family resources are distributed among five energy warehouses. Compared to the energy warehouse of the Jin family, one can’t imagine how many times larger it is. This energy warehouse no.1 is surprisingly almost equal to the sum of all the other four warehouses.
The energy absorbed by Su Hao in the past, if compared to the energy warehouse no.1, is simply like a drop of water in the ocean.
Logically speaking, as the Clan Head, it’s understandable for Su Hao to use the energy warehouse no.1, but thinking about Su Hao’s terrifying absorption rate, the big elder’s heart couldn’t feel at ease.
“How long has it been since you came to our Su family? As for your responsibilities, you have been pushing everything onto other people since the beginning and yet you already know of its existence?” The big elder said in a skeptical tone.
“Of course not.” Su Hao decisively sold his teammate, “Su Minghui told me about it.”
“That smelly brat.” The big elder hatefully cursed before slowly opening his mouth, “Clan Head, you have a respected reputation. Plus, you managed to solve the Su family’s inner problems. Anyway, no one dares to dream of going to the warehouse no.1 to cultivate. Plus, you should also be well aware of how much energy consumption your ability talent requires.”
The big elder hesitated for a bit before making his decision.
“You can only stay there for a day. After one day is over, you need to leave!”
“This…” Su Hao smiled bitterly, “One day, what can one day do? After breaking through into the professional realm, it’s extremely difficult to raise even one point. Even if I am to cultivate with the same previous speed for one hour, I can’t even improve much.”
“There is no other way. The energy is limited.” The big elder sighed.
“Alright then.” Su Hao reluctantly agreed. After the big elder gave him 24 hours access to the warehouse, he left in satisfaction.
Su Hao’s cultivation is terrifying, but it’s still just the professional realm! As for how he cultivated earlier, everyone had already witnessed it. Even if he’s to cultivate with no limit, how much can he absorb in one day? At most, it would be an absorption worth of half a year. For the energy warehouse, the problem isn’t big.
Moreover, Su Hao as the Clan Head, who just recently had a boost of strength, he needed some time to consolidate his strength. The energy warehouse no.1 is undoubtedly the best choice. Plus, for the big elder, the most important fact is that this is Su Hao’s great achievement; since he has been rewarded, in the future, that can’t be used against the big elder anymore.
“Hehe.” The big elder smirked.
“Sigh.” On the surface, Su Hao seemed to be helpless, but he was secretly delighted.
Su Hao was on cloud nine.
Based on the previous absorption rate, a day indeed wouldn’t improve much of his strength. However, after the recent breakthrough, although his physical fitness is more difficult to improve now, the energy absorption rate has definitely accelerated. To be frank, Su Hao had some expectations on his current limit.
Energy warehouse no.1.
The energy liquid, akin to an ocean, was reverberating.
Su Hao sat cross-legged. Like a small boat, he stayed afloat on the ocean of energy liquid. The surrounding energy was like a fog, surrounding his body while being inhaled by Su Hao.
A moment later, acting as the center point, Su Hao actually formed a huge vortex!
“Pfft~~” Su Hao literally spurted out blood.
The big elder would have never expected Su Hao to resort in such a violent absorption method, facing the energy ocean directly and fully absorbing it! Compared to the calm energy drug, it’s in an entirely different world since the energy contained within the energy ocean of the warehouse is of a violent kind.
Under the impact of this giant force, Su Hao’s body almost got torn apart.
Fortunately, Su Hao’s powerful Potential Release began to play its role at this moment by absorbing the endless energy at an unimaginable rate. Whenever his flesh was about to tear apart, a strange warm heat would emerge in an attempt to repair it.
“This is internal force!” Su Hao was delighted at this turn of events. He never expected that the internal force would actually come to join the fun.
The energy within his body circulated as the impact of the energy ocean, the support of his ability talent, and internal force actually formed a cycle. Su Hao’s poor internal force turned into the perfect link of this strange cycle.
Without any signs, energy flames emerged!
Su Hao’s body was now shrouded in the raging flames! This is the sign of energy consumption being too fast that flames were formed. Last time, more than ten domain espers aided Su Hao in his cultivation. This time, it was Su Hao alone who ignited this flame.
The flames surged.
Su Hao’s facial expression didn’t show any signs of change. His skin kept forming cracks and healed while his bones were now vaguely visible. If someone was here, that person would have fainted from looking at this scene. Su Hao was like a piece of metal being thrown into a fire and being refined by a hammer.
Su Hao sat there calmly. At first, he was barely able to withstand the pain he experienced from the huge energy consumption, but now he already got accustomed to it. On the contrary, it was the burning degree of the energy flame that kept fluctuating according to Su Hao’s breathing.
The flame surged!
The flame receded!
This energy flame seemed as if it was being controlled; what an amazing scene this is. Vaguely, Su Hao’s bones also seemed to be burning under this flame.
Su Hao’s bones emitted an endless golden light.
Two crisp sounds rang out.
The endless energy radiance spread. This time, after the constant destruction and healing of Su Hao’s skin, it no longer showed any changes.
The energy ocean passed through his body, Su Hao’s entire body was unharmed.
After an unknown amount of destruction and healing, his physical body had finally reached a point where he could hardly feel the impact of the energy ocean. As the energy ocean kept rampaging, the bones in his body gradually underwent changes from being hardly able to resist the impact and became literally transparent.
This is merely the strength of his physical body!
Along with the increment of his physical fitness, the first change turned out to be Su Hao’s internal force. With the upgrade of his body, his internal force also steadily increased. Coupled with the support from the energy cycle, Su Hao’s internal force which had stayed stagnant for a very long time finally changed.
It soared up one unit at a time!
The internal force is extremely precious. Every unit increment is very rare. After training for so long, how much did Su Hao have? And now, in this cultivation, his internal force soared!
Su Hao was deeply immersed in his cultivation.
At the same time, from this endless tempering, Su Hao’s physical fitness climbed at a terrifying speed! 3,700 points, 3,800 points, 3,900 points!
Even without testing, Su Hao could feel his body’s surging strength.
In the professional realm, every 100 point increment is comparable to the previous 1,000 points! Each breakthrough would be a hard one. The energy within warehouse no.1 was declining at an alarming rate. If the big elder knew about this, he would die out of anger.
One day passed.
When it was time for his cultivation to end, Su Hao awoke from his slumber. Waking up, Su Hao didn’t dare to move immediately. Instead, he raised his hand slightly.
He threw a punch.
The air became turbulent!
“As I expected!” Su Hao’s eyes shone. His physical strength had increased again. Just with that strength and speed of his punch, if he’s to fight Su Changhong now, he has the confidence to finish the fight in a blow.
Slowly getting up, Su Hao slowly adapted to his new strength to ensure not an incident of uncontrollable strength would occur. After a few minutes of stabilizing himself, Su Hao slowly walked down, sensing the power within his body. Compared to the previous cultivation session, this time, he had improved by a number of times. In fact, Su Hao could vaguely feel the bottleneck.
The state where no matter how much one cultivates and won’t have a breakthrough, for others, they would have to seek an opportunity, but Su Hao lacked only energy.
Without any tests, Su Hao was already aware of the extent of his current strength.
Peak professional realm, 4,999 points!
Su Hao excitedly clenched his fists. However, when he looked back at the inventory of the warehouse no.1, he suddenly became stunned, “Damn, this time, I’m in big trouble.”
