Boom! Boom! Boom!
Within Lin Lei’s body, energy was surging within the magic circuit like a torrential river. At the same time, his realm was rapidly rising.
When he finally reached the level of a ninth level sorcerer apprentice, the vast amount of magic force in his body was finally exhausted.
Lin Lei was stunned this result.
He had used the Talent Evolution Card.
His talent had evolved. But after ten years of cultivating, he had only reached the ninth level of sorcerer apprentice.
It must be noted that the average time for an apprentice in the Li Fire Sect to become a sorcerer apprentice was only around ten years.
So after his talent had evolved, he had just barely caught up to the average?
Linley was completely speechless. But after thinking about it, he wasn’t so disappointed.
After all, he had his own system. Today, he had received such a generous reward for his first training session. His talent might continue to evolve in the future.
So Lin Lei resumed his cultivation.
He waved his staff lightly in the air, and a streak of light shot out.
He didn’t know how long had passed.
“Congratulations to the host for finishing ten cultivation sessions. You acquired the profound divine ability: Concealment Technique!”
Lin Lei immediately used the technique, and couldn’t help but raise his eyebrows.
This was indeed a good thing. Not only was it able to completely conceal his aura, it was also able to reveal his strength however he wanted.
But right now, he was still too weak and there was nothing he need to conceal from others.
I must become stronger! Lin Lei thought to himself.
In this world where the strong preyed on the weak, he had to quickly become stronger. Now that he had the system, he didn’t need to fight for resources with others, nor did he need to fight in an extremely dangerous place. All he needed to do was cultivate.
So, Lin Lei continued to cultivate.
Sweat slowly trickled down Linley’s forehead. Although Linley was now a sorcerer apprentice of the ninth level, he was not a sorcerer yet and his magic circuit was still small.
Using fireballs many times in a row had used up lots of his energy. From time to time, he would have to stop and rest.
Casting fireballs repeatedly was very boring for many people.
But Linley didn’t think so. When he was tired, he would sit down and rest. After resting, he would continue. Since he was in the isolation room, no one disturbed him and he could do whatever he wanted.
A month passed.
“Congratulations to the host for completing two hundred cultivation sessions!”
“The reward is three years of cultivation!”
Lin Lei let out a long breath. He had finally drawn another cultivation reward.
In the past month, he had only drawn a reward of one year’s worth of cultivation which had raised him to the peak stage of the sorcerer apprentice of the ninth level. He was only one step away from becoming a sorcerer.
Just as he was about to absorb this cultivation reward, a voice came from outside.
Linley greeted respectfully.
The middle-aged man in front of him was dressed in a black robe. He looked to be in his forties or fifties, and his hair was beginning to turn gray.

The man was called Hugh James. He was the tower lord of the White Tiger Tower, one of the nine tower lords of the Li Fire Sect.
Lin Lei belonged to the White Tiger Tower and Hugh’s disciple.
According to the memory fragments in Lin Lei’s mind, Hugh had treated him quite well.
“During this month here, did anyone make trouble for you?” Hugh asked.
“No. I’ve been quite well in the isolation room. No one has made things difficult for me.”
“If anyone bullies you, just inform me. Even if I’m no longer as powerful as I used to be, protecting you is still a piece of cake.”
Hugh paused for a moment, then let out a sigh.
“Lin Lei, I’ve let you down.
“If you didn’t stand up for Alice who had offended the Holy Maiden, you wouldn’t have ended up here.”
Hugh’s heart was filled with self-blame.
Alice was Hugh’s daughter, and the only family he had in this world.
Growing up together with Lin Lei, she was like his sister.
The Holy Maiden was usually arrogant and domineering. That day, when she was teaching a new disciple a lesson, Alice saw it and muttered some indignant words. The Holy Maiden heard it and gave Alice a lesson as well.
Lin Lei had stood up for Alice and contradicted the Holy Maiden, resulting in his current fate.
Alice was locked up for a only month because her father was a tower lord. In the cell, she was fed well and would be out in a few days.
“Tower Lord, I have always treated Alice as my sister, which was why I stood up for her. You don’t have to blame yourself.”
Hugh was silent for a moment. “I will speak to the sect master. I will get you out as soon as possible.”
Lin Lei shook his head. “It’s fine, Tower Lord. I’m good and safe here. This place is very quiet, and no one disturbs me. I can achieve better cultivation result here with half the effort.”
“You… Are you sure?”
Hugh found it hard to believe. After all, how could one possibly cultivate in such a gloomy place?
Lin Lei nodded seriously. Hugh said, “Don’t worry. If you want to come out, I will get you out no matter what.”
Hugh’s words were firm and resolute. There was no room for doubt.
The two exchanged a few more words, and then Hugh left.
The Grand Disciple Tournament of the Li Fire Sect would come soon. As a Tower Lord, Hugh had been quite busy.
