Chapter 1352: Rules of Core Fusion

“I assume the core inside of you is now at the first stage?” asked Theon .

Jiang Fei replied honestly, “Aye . ”

Rather than giving off a bad impression by trying to hide the truth, it was best to just lay all his cards on the table .

“Mhm,” Theon hummed .

“Master, why do you ask? What stage is your current Core of Will at?” asked Jiang Fei .

“My Core of Will has undergone three stages,” stated Theon, smiling like he was showing off .

“Oh! Where did you manage to get four Cores?”

Jiang Fei had always assumed that he was a special case since he was able to gather two of the same Core . To think that Theon had managed to fuse four Cores together…

Theon laughed .

“That . That thinking of yours . You shouldn’t keep thinking like that . ”

“Whatever do you mean?”

“You’re still too naive . If going through three stages was as easy as finding four Core of Wills, do you really think I would have just taken you in as my apprentice? I would have killed you the moment I felt the resonance in your mind and took the Core for myself,” said Theon laughing sinisterly .


Jiang Fei could not say anything then . He was afraid, terrified even, by the mere suggestion of Theon killing him . Even if he were to escape into the 10th Dimension, who’s to say that Theon could not follow him there? He did after all possess a higher tier Core of Will .

“Calm down . If I really wanted to kill you, you’d never see it coming . Besides, why would I take you in only to kill you now?”

Theon laughed, slapping Jiang Fei on the back . Though it hurt, Jiang Fei felt relieved . That slap on the back was akin to a friendly gesture, the kind that didn’t contain a single shred of malice .

“Fusing Cores is not as easy as you think . Think of squaring the numbers . The first stage requires two original Cores . The second stage would then need four Cores, and the third stage would require eight Cores . If I want to go up another tier, I need to gather eight Core of Wills…” explained Theon .

“That many…”

Jiang Fei had genuinely thought that merely adding one extra Core would suffice but as Theon explained, it was not that easy . If the process were to be written out as an equation, it would be two to the power of N equals X, with N representing the stage of fusion and X as the number of Cores required .

“By the way, what power did you gain after the first stage?” asked Theon .

“Power, Master?”

“The first stage of fusion is the most vital of all as it determines the kind of ability you gain . The later stages of fusion only increase the power of said ability,” explained Theon .

Jiang Fei could not help but think that fusing Cores was not as simple as he thought . To think that the ability gained during the first fusion process would be sealed…

The fusing process changes the basic properties of a Core . Once fused, a Core would not be able to fuse with another fused Core . That is why Theon was willing to take Jiang Fei in as an apprentice . The fused Core within him was useless to Theon . If Jiang Fei had an original Core in him instead, he would not have been so lucky .

“My ability is a sort of personal pocket dimension that only I can freely access . I can also bring objects and life forms that are not too large in there…” said Jiang Fei, not fully explaining his ability .

“I see . So that is how you managed to evade Mashmallow’s attacks,” Theon barked happily as it confirmed what he saw during the incident .

“It takes time for me to drag things like Corvette class ships into the dimension . So… there’s that,” explained Jiang Fei .

“That’s your limit now . After the later stages of fusion, you will find that these weaknesses of yours will be left behind,” replied Theon .

“What is your ability, Sir?” asked Jiang Fei .

“Ah . To put it simply, I am able to use powerful psychic domination to subjugate any life forms with lower intelligence,” explained Theon as he once again smiled proudly .

It was this ability that had allowed him to tame the Ultralisk, the Galactic Specter . Jiang Fei gasped, unable to hide his excitement .


Intelligent beings were weak but with their sheer numbers and proper cooperation, they were able to work together to destroy even galaxies . Even so, they would steer clear of such an Ultralisk, fearing their unknown powers .

“I was lucky . I encountered Marshmallow and subjugated it when it was only a babe . If it had matured a little more, I would need to at least be at the fourth stage of fusion to subjugate it,” said Theon .

To be fair, with his current combat level of 20,000,000, Jiang Fei was already powerful enough to be the strongest fighter in the universe . However, compared to other life forms, including ones with lower intelligence, he was still just average .

Theon chimed in when he sensed that Jiang Fei was sad about his own ability .

“Don’t beat yourself up over it . Your ability has its own merits . For our line of work, a pocket dimension that’s accessible at any time and place is a life saver . ”

Jiang Fei agreed, “True, although my ability isn’t as amazing as yours, it does its job in saving my life . ”

He knew his own ability better than anyone . If he could further increase the Core’s tier, he would be able to throw powerful fighters, life forms, and even large objects into the 10th Dimension . There, where space and time were nothing but an abstract concept, Jiang Fei ruled over all there is .

“In a way, if you could work it out, you could even absorb every powerful attack with your pocket dimension,” suggested Theon .

“It doesn’t work like that but I’ll try . By the way, what are you going to teach me?”

“Mhmmm . Since you also have the Core of Will, you should have bountiful psychic energy . I will teach you how to better weaponize it . ”

“I look forward to your teachings, Master,” said Jiang Fei as he bowed .

Clueless on how to properly use his mental powers as an attack, Jiang Fei had always used it as a defense . At most, he would unleash a concentrated wave of psychic energy to take down foes with weaker mental strength . To put it bluntly, it was an extremely inefficient use of his powers .

Having mastered the power of his Core, Theon had a variety of psychic attacks, making him perhaps the strongest in the entire known universe .

For the next few days and more, Jiang Fei remained on the unnamed planet, receiving lessons from Theon on the art of psychic attacks . And since Theon had officially taken Jiang Fei in as his apprentice, he was thorough with his training .

In return, Jiang Fei had always met Theon’s expectations at every turn . Even though he was not the kind that could fully master it in just one lesson, Jiang Fei still quickly made progress .

He picked up more than tens of different attacks and defensive techniques in just one month, not to mention a plethora of ways to use his psychic powers .

After about a month or so, Theon came to Jiang Fei who was practicing his own Hyper Concentration technique .

“Come along,” he simply said .

Jiang Fei opened his eyes in a flash and jumped to his feet .

“You called, Master,” Jiang Fei replied with respect .

Jiang Fei’s respect for the man had only increased after he had been under Theon’s tutelage for a whole month . The relationship between the two had only drawn closer, bordering between friends and mentor .
