Aspiring to the Immortal Path Chapter 40: Selection (1)

Translated by: Hypersheep325
Edited by: Michyrr

Screams like those of a pig being butchered could be heard loud and clear, causing one's hair to stand on end. At times, it was even possible to hear the lady shout in concern, "Don't shout! Gather your energy! Push! My son, you can definitely endure it. Open… it's open, you can do it…"

It sounded like someone was giving birth.

Tang Jie couldn't help but smile.

The other boy servants mistook this smile for one of self-assurance. Shi Mo glared at him and mouthed several words. Tang Jie could tell that he was saying, 'Don't think you've already won.'

He softly chuckled in reply.

The screams gradually dwindled away. Tang Jie knew that the charging at the gate was over.

A few moments later, Spirit Master Lu appeared with the master and the lady. As they walked, he said, "Congratulations, my master and lady. With four cycles of the gate open, the third young master's talent is not bad."

His talent wasn't bad, but his will was too weak, Tang Jie mentally commented. From Wei Tianchong's alarming screams alone, he had been able to tell that he had failed to fully exhibit his talent. Otherwise, he could have reached five cycles, and with a little more resolve, he might have even reached six cycles.

"In any case, he's still of middling aptitude, much better than Tianzhi… Alas, it seems like the men of the Wei Clan still fall short of the women." Zheng Shufeng ignored the fact that her son was in the lower end of the middle aptitude, instead lamenting how the Wei Clan's sons were worse than its daughters.

Her daughter, Wei Qing'er, had opened six cycles, and she was born with Seven Passion Meridians, making her an excellent match for the arts of the Thousand Passions Sect, so she was the one with the greatest prospects. Wei Qingsong's daughter, Wei Die, had opened five cycles, and she also had a bright future. But the first young master, Wei Tianzhi, had only opened two cycles. While he had managed to get into Basking Moon Academy, he had made little progress and was still working to get into the Spirit Sea Tier. If his luck was bad, the Spirit Sea Tier might be his peak.

As for Wei Qingsong's son, Wei Ming, he had opened three cycles, a head above Wei Tianzhi. This had always left Zheng Shufeng unhappy.

Now that her younger son had opened four cycles and entered the middle grade, so long as he were provided enough resources, he could reasonably be expected to become a peak Spirit Master without a problem, and if he was lucky, he might even have a chance at the Celestial Heart Realm.

Translator Notes

It turns out that Shi Mo simply never had a chance from the start. Truly, Lady Wei is wise.
