Tong Chen also felt that something was odd but he didn’t think it was his question. Instead, it seemed to be the way this disciple thought. What kind of response was that? It was as if he was a chicken talking to a duck.
He hesitated for a bit and finally turned to Mei Chao Bing. This disciple should have understood what he was trying to do and was able to communicate with his junior much better. Why shouldn’t he leave this to him?
“Disciple Mei, you try and teach him while we wait for disciple Shen.” He didn’t bother trying to find any excuse as to why he pushed this task to Mei Chao Bing. Anyway, it should be obvious to everyone who was slightly discerning that he simply couldn’t do it and these were all their own people. At most, he would be slightly embarrassed but his face was thick enough to take that.
Mei Chao Bing simply nodded. “Yes, guardian.” He didn’t doubt that he could teach Yun Bei Fen but he did indeed feel a bit self-conscious about taking over a task from the black warrior.
Could he really teach knowledge about something he himself hadn’t experienced? Even if some was just theory, the black warrior’s understanding of abilities was much higher than his. Certainly, this would show in what they could infer and try to teach others.
Mei Chao Bing felt doubtful but then reminded himself that he shouldn’t think too negatively. Even if the guardian understood abilities better, he clearly didn’t understand Yun Bei Fen well. For this task, the latter might actually be more important. Thus, there was no need to feel self-conscious.
Furthermore, wasn’t the black warrior still standing right there? If he missed something crucial while teaching Yun Bei Fen, he didn’t believe that the guardian would just stand there and do nothing.
No, he would definitely speak up and rectify the situation. Then, the black warrior could explain to him and he could, in turn, explain to Yun Bei Fen until the little bunny understood. It might be a complicated process that could usually be said to include too many people but since it concerned Yun Bei Fen, it might just be right. After all, not everyone needed to be taught the same way.
Reassuring himself this way, Mei Chao Bing walked over to Yun Bei Fen’s side. His little bunny was already beaming, clearly happy that he had managed to get his fiance to teach him instead of the guardian.
Mei Chao Bing felt a bit helpless seeing him like this. Being taught by one of the guardians was an honor and most cultivators in the four great righteous sects would give an arm or a leg to have this opportunity. Yun Bei Fen actually snatched this privilege thrice in a row but still felt that it was better to be taught by his lover. He didn’t even take into consideration that he could teach him at any time. Well, it was also a bit cute.
He reached out and rubbed Yun Bei Fen’s head with a smile before motioning at the place where he had just demonstrated the sword skill. “What the guardian just meant was the specific thought process you went through. After all, every task can be done in different ways. For example, do you imagine everything at once and then follow the whole sequence or do you only imagine parts of it as you follow along?”
Yun Bei Fen’s face lit up as if enlightenment had suddenly fallen upon him. So that was what the black warrior had meant! He really wouldn’t have gotten it if Mei Chao Bing didn’t explain. Well, this just went to show how excellent his senior martial brother Mei was. Even the enigmatic words of the black warrior could be understood in a heartbeat and taught to others.
He allowed himself a moment to marvel at Mei Chao Bing’s genius before focusing on the content of his words. What was his specific process? Actually, he hadn’t really paid attention. Thinking about it now, it seemed he was imagining the whole process first?
Mei Chao Bing saw his excitement turn into doubt and rubbed his head again. “If you’re unsure, you can try it again to see.” Anyway, they still had time. Who knew how sleepless Shen Lei was right now? And even if he made his way over soon, the guardians could test Luo Lin’s ability by themselves while he continued to teach Yun Bei Fen. Or maybe they could just take a break. There were many possibilities of how to go about this.
Next to him, Yun Bei Fen nodded and started over, this time paying a lot of attention to everything he did. It seemed … he really imagined everything first? At the very least, wanting to demonstrate the skill to Mei Chao Bing, he tried hard to memorize everything Zhi Guan had shown him back then. Only when he was sure that he hadn’t missed anything did he move himself.
As soon as he finished his demonstration, he returned to his spot next to his fiance and looked up expectantly. “I really imagined everything first!”
Mei Chao Bing nodded. Seeing his expression, he reached up and patted his head again. “It’s great you figured it out!” Now, what the guardian should have wanted to do was to guide Yun Bei Fen to the point where that image in his mind could be turned into a projection outside his body. The steps to do so … “And when you imagine it, how clear is the picture you have of your first senior martial brother? Would you say it’s very detailed?”
Yun Bei Fen blinked his eyes. He didn’t understand how this was important but since Mei Chao Bing wanted to know, he happily nodded his head nonetheless. “Well, I mostly try to remember how he did it. So it’s as clear as my memory?”
“I see.” Mei Chao Bing’s lips curved into a smile. Yes, he might indeed see what the issue was.
