Chapter 23: A New Type of Torture

A bright light glares down at me, putting me into the spotlight to be viewed. As the audience’s bell-like cheer sounds out, it signifies the ring of the bell to start my daily torture.

I shake in fear as the tall, looming shadow overhead begins to cackle excitedly for his experiment number ??? because I have already lost count of how many experiments have been done to me. All sorts of crazy, gory experiments were performed, and today, it’s the dismember into a thousand pieces, no a million pieces treatment. You think I am exaggerating? No, this is no joke. That madman is seriously going to cut me up into millions of tiny pieces today. Madman’s “slice-n-dice” invention is going to facilitate that.

The “machine” are just basically many Qi-infused knives that can slice my body into thin pieces. Then my body would be sent down the chute to the meat grinder which will dice my sliced up pieces into fine grain, or smaller. It’ll be a wonderful experience, I guarantee it, for the one watching. Unlike the modern machines on Earth, this one has no sound besides the chopping on the chopping board. The grinder is just a Qi killing formation that atomizes those that are trapped in it.

Pretty cool right? Hah! Not to me who’s going into it right now. This might be the last chapter of my story you know. Although I might not die sliced up because it was considered as “medium” damage, being diced into tiny specks would definitely end me-

Right now, I have taken front row seat to the show of Qi infused knives chopping me up to pieces, then my sliced pieces being diced up before those pieces evaporate into the air as smoke. No giant puff of smoke, just gradual smoke- ARGGGGGG! The PAIN!
sigh There’s no physical pain I learned at least, but the mental pain of all the fear, helplessness, and grudge that I receive as feedback from my clone popping is really driving me nuts. Or, it would have, if I hadn’t actually gotten an ability on the first time I went through these experiments a month ago.

[Divine Mental Fortress]
Level : 3 {56%}
This ability’s progress to the next level can be increased by taking mental damage, suffering through mental attacks, or imagining pressure-inducing scenes. Every level increase in this ability reduces mental damage by 1%. This ability also unlocks mental power usage and increases mental power capacity by 5 per level. This ability also reduces the cost of activating divine sense to 1 mental power (MP) per Foot per second. As a perk, this ability prevents the host from perishing due to mental damage.
Current reduced mental damage : 3%
Current mental capacity increase : 15

So what’s this mental and crazy OP power do? It basically just unlocks what would be known as divine sense in cultivation novels. I basically can extend my senses out and see all around me in a radius of X feet depending on how much MP I use. The default base for unlocking the mental power was 5, so now my cap is 20, so I can extend up to 20 feet for 1 second or 5 feet for 4 second. Unfortunately for me, although I can technically “see” everywhere within that 20 feet, it’s pretty useless because it’s just a mere glimpse. The time it takes to actually reach that coverage is also counted in the time of 1 seconds that I use it for. I don’t know how MCs from other novels can have instant coverage and instantly and clearly recognize everything within that range, but I certainly can’t.

Although this was a pretty OP, but training it up is basically a new type of torture. I have to basically create a copy of myself and send him to death while blatantly watching myself being killed in the most cruelest way. Then, I have to suffer from the intense feedback of emotions coming from that kill along with all the disgusting memories of what occur. Awesome. It’s like Re:Z*** MC except that I have a clone instead of going back in time. Did that MC almost go crazy? Yes he did, and so am I, but I am lucky because I have a sing-song cutie comforting me because I’m getting the lap pillow like always.

Still doesn’t counter how much I went through. Multiple experiments per day over a month, how does that mad geezer not get tired. But, alas, at least I learn some stuff from it. I know my weaknesses and how much damage I can take, or at least for my clones. Though I did get some stat raises …

Got some endurance for all that torture, agility from running from a lot of them, intelligence from learning about myself, and comprehension on the futility of controlling life and death. No joke. No strength though because I’m always getting crushed, not crushing others. I also cultivated plenty for the past month, but since most of the time was used on watching myself get killed, I wasn’t able to break through even after a month. No, it’s not because I’m not a genius. That’s only a tiny factor in the view of the big picture. cough

On the other hand, my death related skills haven’t really increased in level because it’s not really me dying, just my clones. Or I would have been the first person to find the easiest way to escape death. Aii~ Mr.Aura would not allow that.

Aii~ here we go again. Happiness~ when my darling Ling’er here feeds me dumplings to recover my Qi. Watching her as she giggles with her bright, sparkly eyes while saying Ahh~ to me. That’s probably the happiest moment of my life, but I know what follows is hell. As soon as I recover enough Qi, I know I have to summon a clone for mad old man over there, or else the one that is in for it would be my main body. Aiii~ but no biggie.

After a month here, I’ve finally found the way to sneak out. Although sneaking my main body out would not happen because I’m tagged with some sort of Qi signaler after the old madman found me trying to sneak out a month ago, I can at least sneak out a clone to start my plans tonight. I haven’t forgotten about the annoying Fan empire.
