Translator: Darling | Editor: Nebosuke
Ye Zan and his party were led by Yue Lin and arrived at the camp of Yuqing sect in the mountain valley. However, someone came to report that the other four sects had sent people over when they have not unpacked their things yet. And was asking for Jin Dasheng, the leader of the group to come over to discuss something.
“What is it this time?” Jin Dasheng frowned, and he was tapping his palm with a hand fan from time to time.
Don’t think that Jin Dasheng was rude, he is actually a weak scholar. He is always wearing a scholar robe when everyone is wearing a sword robe. Others are wearing taoist crown, but he is wearing a scholar’s headscarf. And it’s not only about his appearance, it is said that he had once taken imperial examinations a few times, but unfortunately, the imperial examination seemed to be more difficult than cultivating. As a result, this Jindan master failed in the exam every time, in the end, he could only give up and accept that he failed.
Although he failed in the imperial examinations, Jin Dasheng still regarded himself as a scholar, he always had a folding fan with him, he loved to join literary competitions whenever he was free. Of course, those scholars in literary gatherings don’t know his true identity, that he was an extravagant young lord of the Fu residence.
Ye Zan smiled while sitting next to him, he took the tea and took a sip and said casually, “Don’t bother about him, it’s just counter soldiers with arms, water with an earth weir.”
Ye Zan is quite familiar with the situation of Yuqing sect now. If it would explain in a word, as long as there is something that happens, it must be about Yuqing sect.
This is actually no longer an issue of deliberate suppression. After all, Yuqing has fallen into a third-class sect after so many years. For some influential sects, the threats to them have long been lost. In the last few hundred years, the only thing that may be counted as deliberately suppressing is the incident of Qi Qianjun. After all, it’s indeed scary to let a busy genius to go mature. Although it’s impossible to bring back the Yuqing sect in its glory ten thousand years ago, it is possible to move Yuqing sect to a first-class sect.
The other aspects they were targeted were actually more due to the fact that Yuqing was weak, it was the same in any world, whenever someone falls behind, he will get a beating. When it comes to the gains, the stronger one always wins. This is not for suppressing, but law of the jungle.
“Martial uncle, do you want to go with me?” Jin Dasheng asked carefully.
“Let’s go.” Ye Zan also simply put down his cup of tea and stood up.
The place where the four sects meet was in the camp of the Qingyuejian sect. The area it occupies was not bigger than Yuqing sect, but it seems that the difference of their sect can be seen at a glance. If the camp of Yuqing sect is an ordinary house, then the camp of the Qingyuejian sect is the mansion of a prince.
As they stood at the gate, Ye Zan couldn’t help but curl his lips. A camp stationed at Mijing, how arrogant.
No one came out to welcome them or no one bothered to come out and welcome them. When Ye Zan and Jin Dasheng came, a disciple of Qingyuejian came out.
Ye Zan and Jin Dasheng arrive at the main hall following the leaf. From outside, they could see the four sects sitting inside, and they seemed to be talking about something.
The master of Qingyuejian is a chubby middle-aged man, the master of Guangfa is a handsome monk with beautiful eyes, and Jinguang and Wuzhu masters are Ye Zan’s acquaintances, Luo Miao and Wang Lianshan.
“Brother Jin you’re here, please come and sit down.” The man who spoke was the master of Qingyuejian, Li Fugui. Don’t look at this man’s pot-bellied appearance, even if his name sounds poor(inelegant), but the people who know him don’t dare to underestimate him.
Although Li Fugui cultivates in jindanjing as well, yet he has refined a set of five-element sword pill, which can be formed into five-element sword arrays. Few monks in the same realm can rarely compete with them. More importantly, Li Fugui’s father is the leader of the Qingyuejian sect, and the master of Yuanying, Li Yuanshao.
Jin Dasheng walked towards the room while Ye Zan followed him, but the disciple of Qingyuejian at the doorway raised his hand to stop Ye Zan.
“Brother, you can’t enter inside.” The disciple did not show any rudeness, since the master of Jindan, Jin Dasheng was in front of him.
Jin Dasheng stopped and turned to look at the disciple of Qingyue, he coldly said, “Move back, if my martial uncle can’t enter, then I don’t have to enter.”
“Huh?” The disciple of Qingyue was stunned. He didn’t know if he was just hearing things. He couldn’t react for a moment. He just glanced at Li Fugui who was inside the room.
In the room, Luo Miao and Wang Lianshan knew Ye Zan’s identity, but they just kept silent and seemed like they were waiting for a show. They can still remember how they lost from this kid at the competition of the outer disciples of Yuqing sect. So how could they say something to help him out?
Li Fugui was surprised, he looked at Ye Zan then he turned to Jin Dasheng, he said, “I think brother Jin wasn’t joking.”
“This is Master Mo’s junior disciple, the martial uncle. Luo Miao, Wang Lianshan, won’t you greet your martial uncle!” Jin Dasheng knew what the two were thinking when he saw them.
Though Luo Miao and Wang Lianshan wanted to ignore them yet it’s impossible since Jin Dasheng already mentioned their names.
This world, giving respect to their seniors is very important, if someone does not respect his senior, it will greatly affect his character, although he won’t be cast aside by the others.
“Greetings martial uncle!” Luo Miao and Wang Lianshan, stood up, clenching their teeth, and greeted Ye Zan who was at the doorway.
Li Fugui has no idea about Ye Zan’s rank. Since Qingyuejian and Yuqing have no relationship, so he doesn’t care about his rank. When Li Fugui saw the expression of the two, he felt it was ridiculous, he said to Ye Zan, “Please come in brother Ye, since you are the martial uncle of brother Jin.”
It can be seen from Li Fugui’s words that the people of the Qingyuejian sect are really arrogant. Although he was smiling, yet he didn’t mention about stopping Ye Zan’s at all, and he did not even apologize to him.
Ye Zan and Jin Dasheng entered the room, they sat down in the seats arranged, and a servant served them with fragrant tea.
After the servants retreated, Li Fugui looked at the people, he coughed and said, “Before you arrive, brother Jin, we are discussing something, and we’re still discussing the same thing, I want to know your opinion about this.”
Their discussion was almost finished when he asked for the opinion of Yuqing sect. The position of Yuqing sect here was obvious. Jin Dasheng was also used to these things, he looked so calm, he said as he fan, “Oh, I don’t know, what is that?”
Li Fugui didn’t answer him, but turned and looked at the two.
When Luo Miao saw him looking at him, he knew that he had to say something, so he smiled and said, “This is the case. We are considering a while if we could make some adjustments to the number of people who would enter Mijing, we might be able to gain more in the Mijing.”
Speaking of it, from the very beginning when this competition started, there have been 10 people from each sect who could enter Mijing. But based on what Jin Dasheng heard, the other parties were aiming for this number of people, he has a bad feeling about it. He couldn’t help but frowned and said, “The competition between the five sects has been more than three hundred years, and each sect agreed to have 10 people in each group back then, so why should we have some adjustments.”
