6 Three Years and Body Strengthening
This clearly was a bit unexpected that there would be a mutation in the bones and Ben who actually meant to spend these three years with his parents creating bonds and also enjoying his time with excitement and joy, actual became a paining hell due to the bones being too heavy for newborn baby, though, it was not to the extent of having some serious issues, there were minor ones like reduced growth of the body, low endurance levels and all the things to which the babies do after a certain age were also pushed back a little which caused panic in Kosaka couple. While this happened our MC here tried a lot to crawl and lots of other exercises and natural things which babies to but due to the condition of his body he was unable to do all this things so an year after his birth, he started trying to crawl and which was a success but due to his low endurance levels and heavy bone weight, after moving a little distance he would collapse which would cause joy and panic together for his mother which was quite ironic, but pushing through all these things without being discouraged and then trying to push himself he created a baby training regime for himself which consisted of crawling and if possible walking and speaking. Whenever he gets tired he takes rest and continue once again while having huge amounts of food which was not ordinary for a baby appetite which also cause trouble for parents this continued for two more years until he attained an age of 3. Ben due to his constant trying in regular exercises and lot of nourishments from food, he was able to get his body adapt to the bones and though there was the case of leaking of aura from his qi, he was able to limit the leakage and was able to finally get his flesh body adapt to his bones. And the other important thing which have happened during this three years was Draig not talking to Ben and was instead sleeping all along even though when he tried communicating with the dragon.
" Hey Draig, wake up. I need to speak with you regarding our training regime ".
' Damn that dragon not responding to me and causing trouble '.
Then he tried waking him up a bit more roughly and after a while there was response from the dragon.
WHAT IS IT! WHY YOU WAKING ME UP? I WAS JUST TRYING TO COLLECT ALL THE AURA SCATTERED IN YOUR BODY SO THAT THE AURA RELEASING FROM ME WOULD BE MINISCULE AND ALSO WE CAN USE THIS FOR STRENGTHENING YOUR QI LATER WHEN YOU START TRAINING AT 3 YEARS. SO, IS IT THAT TIME ALREADY?
"Yes, the great Red dragon Emperor it has already been 3 years and also my bones due to me be being conscious and limiting the aura emitted from my Dantian and you helping me contain all the aura inside you, my flesh body can adaptor to the weight of my bones and right now I am ready to start my training regime though I think there would be small recuperation due to my bone weight during the initial years I guess we can't do nothing about it ".
OH SO THAT'S WHAT HAPPENED PARTNER AND DON'T FRET ABOUT THE RECUPERATION CAUSED BY DRAGON STRENGTHENED BONES IN YOUR BODY. BECAUSE ANY DRAGON POWER MIXED LIVING BEING USUALLY HAVE A VERY DEVELOPED FLEXIBLE BODY AND ALSO BETTER FACIAL FEATURES. SO, WE DON'T HAVE TO CONSIDER THAT AS A TROUBLE. AND ALSO FOR TRAINING REGIME, WHILE I WAS TRYING TO GATHER ALL THE AURA CONTAINED IN YOUR BODY, I ALSO SURFED THROUGH THE MEMORIES WHICH YOU GAVE ME AND THERE WAS AN INTERESTING TECHNIQUE IN ONE OF THE ANIME WHICH WAS CALLED "NARUTO" I GUESS, "THE EIGHT INNER GATES TECHNIQUE". I RECOMMEND YOU TO PRACTICE THE TECHNIQUE. DUE TO THE PRESENCE OF DRAGON POWER IN YOUR BODY THERE WILL NOT BE ANY RECUPERATIONS OPENING THE GATES. ALSO IF YOU TRY HARD ENOUGH YOU MAY OPEN THE GATE PERMANENTLY WHICH WELL HELP YOU IN STRENGTHENING YOUR BODY. SO, WHEN YOU LET LOOSE YOUR ALL INSIDE YOUR BODY AT LEAST AND IF IT HAPPENS TO STRENGTHEN YOUR BONES ONCE AGAIN THERE WILL NOT BE ANY PROBLEMS LIKE THIS IN THE FUTURE.
" Oh interesting! I didn't consider about the technique until you mentioned. Though it was considered one of my favourite Manga I guess I'll have to try it and it seems there is pretty much your possibility of me permanently maintaining the gates opened because of the qi method I am practicing is not comparable to the chakra development method in Naruto series. So, I can possibly open the gates permanently if I change the order of gates which I open to my advantage. But to do that I would need to at least advance the qi gathering stage 3 so that I'll have enough qi to burst open a gate or else I'll be shortage of qi and might not open the gate well as, till now, I did not consciously practice gathering qi. But subconsciously the body itself produced qi. So, I have to check my Dantian and see if there is a possibility if I can achieve a breakthrough to the third layer if not I have to first accumulate all the qi for the further breakthroughs and later start my body tempering. As it always stated in cultivation manual, 'the higher you go the more the accumulation required'. So, let's start with the cultivation first and then go to body tempering".
IF YOU HAVE A PERFECT PLAN FOR YOUR REGIME, THEN GO AHEAD PARTNER. I WILL HELP YOU WHEN THE TIME YOU REQUIRE MY ASSISTANCE. CALL ME IF YOU NEED ANYTHING, BUT IF YOU DON'T, THEN DON'T WAKE ME UP SO THAT I CAN GATHER ALL THE REMAINING DRAGON AURA INSIDE YOUR BODY EXCEPT YOUR DANTIAN.
" Ok then I will see you after I complete my third stage and when opening the gate. Goodbye partner ".
