Just as he entered the house, Abigail ran toward him and shouted excitedly, “Uncle! I did it. I did it!”
“What do you mean?” Dustin was shocked. “Are you pregnant?”
How could she get pregnant at such a young age? This girl was too wild.
“Gosh! Of course not! I’m still a virgin!” Abigail retorted, rolling her eyes.
“Why are you so excited if you’re not pregnant?” Dustin was speechless. She shocked him for a second.
“Didn’t you teach me the cultivation technique last night? Well, I’m thrilled to announce that I have successfully cultivated my internal energy!” Abigail said, beaming with joy.
“What? So soon?” Surprised, Dustin frowned.
Usually, it would take an average martial artist at least a year or more to cultivate internal energy. Even for exceptionally talented individuals, it would still take several months to grasp the basics. Yet, Abigail claimed to have achieved it overnight. Did she master it that fast?
Dustin was skeptical and reached out to feel her pulse. Indeed, he felt a faint flow of energy circulating in her core. Although the energy was very subtle, she indeed had internal energy.
In other words, Abigail really succeeded!
In just one night, she had achieved what ordinary martial artists would take a year or more of arduous training to accomplish. Her talent was truly exceptional!
Just imagine, while others struggled for ten years, Abigail could achieve the same level of mastery in just a day of leisurely practice. How could anyone compete with that?
Hard work paled in comparison to natural talent.
“So, what do you think? I succeeded, didn’t I? I told you I’m not lying!” Abigail boasted.
“I have to admit you do have remarkable talent. It takes ordinary individuals a year to reach the same level, but
you managed it in just one day. You are truly a rare martial arts prodigy,” Dustin praised with a smile.
“Hahaha… I knew it!” Abigail laughed triumphantly. “Even though I may not be the sharpest tool in the shed.
I’ve never lost a fight.”
“Hmm. Are you saying you’re stupid?” Dustin asked.
“Pffft! No way! You’re the stupid one!” Abigail retorted. She narrowed her eyes and said, “I mean, I may not be good at studying, but I’m excellent at fighting. There’s a saying, how does it go? Everyone is born to succeed!”
“Girl, honestly, with your martial arts talent, you’ll be in high demand wherever you go. All the major sects will compete to recruit you. So, from now on, you need to think about where you want to develop yourself,” Dustin suddenly said.
“Well, I don’t really know yet.”
Abigail scratched her head and said, “Forget it. Let’s not worry about that for now. Since I’m just starting out,
you can teach me first. Consider it a favor to you.”
“A favor to me? That sounds odd.” Dustin raised an eyebrow.
“Think about it. I’m a martial arts prodigy. When I become famous and renowned, won’t you benefit too?” Abigail raised her chin.
“I guess I’ll have to wait for that.” Dustin shook his head.
“Hey! Are you underestimating me? You just said it yourself. I’m a prodigy. One day of practice for me is equivalent to one year for others. As long as I casually train, I’ll soon dominate the martial arts world!” Abigail was quite proud.
“It’s not that simple. Even if you have great talent, you still need to hone your skills.” Dustin chuckled.
“Hmph! That’s just how you mortals see it. You don’t understand the world of geniuses.” Abigail shook her head and asked proudly. “By the way, how long did it take you to achieve the basic level of internal energy? One year or two years?”
Dustin didn’t say anything but instead raised three fingers.
“No way? It actually took you three years?” Surprised, Abigail said, “Gosh, you’re really behind. I finished it in only one night, and you spent that much time?”
“Don’t judge others based on your own limited perspective.” Dustin said unkindly. “It took me three minutes to achieve the basic level of internal energy.”
