RMN C539 Imagine an Image Doing Something

Yun Bei Fen didn’t realize that Mei Chao Bing had just managed to cut to the core of the issue. He just knew that his favorite person was smiling at him and immediately beamed at him as well. If they hadn’t been seriously training right now, he would have jumped at him and hugged him as well.

Mei Chao Bing rubbed his little bunny’s head again, wanting to encourage him before they tackled the last hurdle. “So what you’re saying is that you remember exactly what he did and you basically call up that memory when you try to repeat the skill?”

Yun Bei Fen thought for a moment and then nodded. Yes? That seemed to be the case?

Seeing that his guess had been right, Mei Chao Bing gave a hum. “Alright, then I want you to do the following: Try to imagine your first senior martial brother but don’t do it the way you did before by just thinking of a specific memory. Just remember him in general and then try to trace the image in your mind.”

Yun Bei Fen nodded again but it was a lot slower this time, even seeming a little sluggish. Trace the image in his mind … it sounded like he was about to do something complicated again that he wouldn’t understand.

He was a bit worried but since this was Mei Chao Bing who asked him, he would naturally comply. Anyway, as long as he was given specific instructions, he could definitely do it! There was no need to understand all the ins and outs. It was enough if he followed along with the steps.

After giving himself a pep talk, Yun Bei Fen closed his eyes and tried to recall his first senior martial brother. It wasn’t easy. Not because he had no idea what he looked like but because he would automatically think of one of the many moments they had spent together over the years.

He still remembered how he had entered the Teng Yong Sect. At that time, his Master had introduced him to his senior martial brothers, the first one being Zhi Guan. At that time, he had been so small and Zhi Guan had been so tall and with his serious expression, he had been a bit afraid of him. He had warned up to the beautiful and delicate Luo Lin much more easily.

But later, he realized that he could trust Zhi Guan. He might be really big in comparison to him and his expression might not have too many changes on a regular day because his mind was always on his sword practice but he knew that Zhi Guan genuinely cared about him and their two martial brothers.

When he thought of him, he would usually think of that first impression from when he entered the sect or the time when Zhi Guan seriously took him around the sect in his pursuit of Mei Chao Bing, not complaining even once. He was a lot better than his second senior martial brother for sure!

So, of course, there were many good times to remember and recall. To imagine his appearance outside of any of these … it wasn’t impossible but it was difficult for him because his memory was pretty good and he would just automatically recall them.

Mei Chao Bing could see that Yun Bei Fen was having trouble. He wasn’t sure if it was the actual imagining that troubled him or keeping it separate from his memories but either way, it was clear that Yun Bei Fen needed more time to sort this out. He didn’t pressure him either and simply stood next to him quietly, waiting until there would be some progress.

Actually, this task was difficult to handle. The main problem was that he had no real way of knowing whether Yun Bei Fen had done it the ‘right’ way. After all, it wasn’t like he could look into his head and watch the progress. He could only trust that if Yun Bei Fen said he had done it a certain way that this indeed reflected how he had accomplished the result. If not … well, that would make matters more difficult.

According to his own idea, what Yun Bei Fen needed to do to use his ability in the way Luo Lin had shown was to imagine a person doing an action. A memory wouldn’t work because that was simply recalling the past. No, what needed to be there should be an intent directed toward the future.

If he told the guardians as much, he was sure they would get what the difference between the two was. But he wasn’t as sure when it came to Yun Bei Fen. Sure, some parts were obvious but the implications weren’t. And if they took a wrong step at this point which couldn’t be easily remedied because they might not even notice, then the subsequent attempts would only get more difficult. Thus, they had to be very careful at this time.

While Mei Chao Bing was worried about the outcome, Yun Bei Fen finally managed to fulfill the task he had been given. “I did it!” He looked at his fiance with some expectations, his eyes shimmering brightly.

Mei Chao Bing was immediately pulled out of his thoughts and nodded. “Alright. Now, this might sound a bit difficult but try your best to imagine this image you just created in your mind doing an action. Maybe the first step of the skill you just demonstrated.”

Yun Bei Fen blinked his eyes. Imagine the image doing something? This really didn’t sound easy, ah … For a moment, he felt like Mei Chao Bing was indeed asking too much of him but he also didn’t want to disappoint him. Thus, he could only close his eyes again and do his best to do as he was told.

As for the result … well, this kind of matter might need some more attempts. If everyone was able to master their ability in just a day, the guardians wouldn’t be the only known people with abilities at this point in time.
