As soon as Tang Xin began to speak, she suddenly stopped.
The first option from before was almost synonymous with instant death (or social suicide). Why would there be an option that seems like the “best” choice this time?
Think about it, in a story of the immortal heroes genre, who is the person you must not offend?
Isn’t it the protagonist?
“Getting bored of her” “She’s not qualified,” and “Increase the intensity of bullying her”
These three choices all offend the protagonist to some extent.
But if we’re talking about which one has the most mocking intensity…
That’s right, the first option is still not an option.
Tang Xin took a long breath of relief in her heart.
I’m so damn smart, I’ve seen through the system’s trap once again!
The second option is obviously not the right choice. As per usual, we’ll go with 【Choice Three】.
Tang Xin took two steps forward, chest to chest and face to face with the slender girl.
“What do you want to do?”
Su Ling’s body trembled slightly, and she subconsciously took two steps back.
Without a word, as the junior sister retreated, Tang Xin advanced, pushing her until she was backed against the huge statue of the Xuanling Sect’s founding ancestor in the training field.
Tang Xin stretched out her palm, trapping the sword cultivator girl.
“You, you you…”
Su Ling’s cheeks immediately flushed red, her words becoming a jumbled mess.
【Ultimate move: Wall Slam. For girls under twenty years old, there is an 80% chance of making them give up resistance】
It seems that this time the trigger was successful.
Tang Xin, with her head lowered, spoke in a cold tone.
“Do you want me to continue bullying you?”
Su Ling shivered all over, and immediately petrified on the spot.
The statue of the Ancestral Master is the most eye-catching landmark in the training field. Every morning, disciples who come to practice would pay their respects to it as a sign of reverence.
Now, in this sacred place, such an indecent scene unfolded, and the onlooking disciples were…
“Is it Su Ling again? Did she anger Senior Sister Tang?”
“Looking at Senior Sister Tang’s expression, she’s probably in for it!”
“Awesome, I wish Senior Sister would pin me down under the Ancestral Master’s statue too!”
The onlooking disciples whispered among themselves, seemingly accustomed to such scenes.
Su Ling, the odd one out among the direct disciples, and her conflict with the Chief Disciple Senior Sister, was well known throughout the Xuanling Sect.
【Option three completed, reward: Persecution Gift Pack. Would you like to open it now?】
【Opening… “Cultivation Cheat Finger (Persecution Version)” obtained】
What is this thing?
“You, you, you, you,” Su Ling’s face turned redder than ever, as she shouted and struggled free from Tang Xin’s grasp, running away while turning back to angrily say, “Don’t think you can bully me forever, once I get stronger, I definitely won’t let you off!”
Hmm? Wasn’t it you who came to me on your own initiative this time? How come it’s my fault again?
Tang Xin was too exhausted to retort and simply rolled her eyes at the girl. After she ran off into the distance, Tang Xin continued to check the reward she had just received.
【Cultivation Cheat Finger (Persecution Version): You can obtain points by persecuting others, which can be exchanged for corresponding items in the store.】
【Store function unlocked】
Damn, isn’t this golden finger way too villainous? The world has done you no harm, why would you go and persecute others? Especially in a world where plots like “geniuses are a dime a dozen,” “do not bully the young/poor,” and “what goes around comes around” frequently occur!
【Current Persecution Points: 50】
Huh? I just got this golden finger, and I’ve already done something bad? All I did was corner Su Ling, right?
“Could that also be considered persecuting others?”
Practice reveals the truth, let’s give it a try and see.
Tang Xin looked around and casually picked a female inner sect disciple with a rather ample chest, gesturing for her to come over.
“Senior, Senior Sister, greetings!”
The busty female disciple greeted her with a nervous face.
“You were laughing quite happily just now, weren’t you?” Tang Xin crossed her arms and spoke in an unfriendly tone, “I didn’t see you this enthusiastic during cultivation, but you’re quick to join in when there’s a spectacle. Is this how the elders taught you to behave?”
“I’m sorry, Senior Sister!”
Cold sweat instantly broke out on the disciple’s forehead.
“You’re not sorry to me, but to yourself,” Tang Xin said, “Being careless and muddle-headed, in the end, the one who suffers is you, not me! Do a hundred push-ups, right now!”
“Yes, Senior Sister!”
The busty female disciple didn’t resist at all and started doing push-ups on the spot as instructed.
Hmm, watching her move is quite… pleasing to the eye…
【Current Persecution Points: 65】
My guess was right; persecution doesn’t mean ruining someone’s family and leaving them destitute!
The hundred push-ups were quickly completed, and aside from a few drops of fragrant sweat on her body, the Qi Refining female disciple was perfectly fine.
“I know, you must have been cursing me as a big villain in your heart just now,” Tang Xin patted her shoulder and said earnestly, “It’s okay, curse me all you want if it can make you all take your cultivation seriously.”
The female disciple lowered her head, showing an expression of admitting her mistake.
The second point was confirmed, forcefully whitewashing and stirring emotions would not result in a deduction of persecution points.
That makes things easier!
If it’s this kind of persecution, then I’m actually quite good at it…
After letting the female disciple go, Tang Xin started to check out the newly unlocked feature [Mall].
“Indestructible Celestial Body, points 999999999999…”
“Immortal Artifact Myriad Realms Spirit Boat, points 3141592653589…”
“Ascension Pill of Daylight, points 2200280043967777…”
The items at the very top, which looked incredibly impressive, had so many points that Tang Xin couldn’t even count how many digits there were.
It was clear that these were just bait, meant to be looked at and not seriously considered for purchase before the grand finale.
Aside from these “Immortal Artifacts and Pills,” the rest of the items were categorized from low to high according to cultivation levels.
Currently, Tang Xin could only browse items at the Qi Refining and Foundation Building levels.
There weren’t many items in these two categories, but thankfully, the required points weren’t as exaggerated.
“Based on your needs, the system intelligently recommends: Foundation Building Great Supplement Pill.”
“Foundation Building Great Supplement Pill: A cultivation aid pill suitable for various constitutions. Upon consumption by the host, it can break through to the sixth rank of Foundation Building.”
“Required points: 2000”
Compared to the secret techniques and spiritual tools that cost tens of thousands of points, the Great Supplement Pill seemed much more reliable.
This should be the most suitable item for completing the current main quest.
Two thousand points, if converted to wall pins on Su Ling, would mean doing it forty times… but that’s clearly unrealistic.
Too many wall pins would definitely lose the sense of persecution, and constantly shearing a sheep for wool is not conducive to sustainable development.
Besides, she’s not exactly a gentle and adorable little lamb, is she?
“Hehe, got my favorite candied haw again…”
At this moment, an unsuspecting disciple happily passed by Tang Xin.
Without a second thought, Tang Xin snatched the candied haw from the hands of the disciple, who looked to be about twelve or thirteen years old.
“How many times have I told you, eating something so sweet is bad for your teeth,” Tang Xin said. “Confiscated. You’re not allowed to eat this!”
The little girl stood there, stunned.
【Current Persecution Points: 80】
