Zhanxian - Chapter 289
These materials were necessary to construct the Welcoming Array. The intelligence of the Greatest Heaven Sect said that they had enough materials to build a complete array with their materials. Now Elder Zheng actually said that these materials could not be taken out. Didn’t it mean that the Pure Yang Palace had the biggest suspicion?
Originally, there was once a sinister ruin in Pure Yang Palace. The key to this was that the high-level members of the Greatest Heaven Sect were certainly in doubt whether the Pure Yang Palace knew it. Now, with the performance of the Pure Yang Palace, were they the culprits?
Of course, they were correct in such a fine test. Pure Yang Palace had already known all the secrets, and Yang Chen was the one who detonated the formation in their sect. However, who would admit it?
“How can you not get it?”
The anger on the face of the Palace Master was apparent.
“Lord of the Palace, these materials were all good materials for refining flying swords.”
Zheng Feng hurriedly explained, “you forgot, thirty years ago, you told the sect disciple, Gao Yue, to refine a number of good flying sword embryos for the sect. To use them as a re Life Source Magic Weapons for a group of outstanding disciples. In the past 30 years, Gao Yue has successively refined these materials into swords, most of them have been given out. How could they be taken out?”
The reminder of Elder Zheng Feng was what Yang Chen and the Palace Master had discussed as countermeasures. Yang Chen listened in the distance and smiled in his heart. This time, the Island Master of the Green Jade Immortal Island came out, how could they just let these delegates of the Greatest Heaven Sect not eat back their words and leave peacefully.
Listening to this, the Palace Master acted as if he suddenly realized what had happened and slapped his head, “I really forgot!”
After that, he turned to the Greatest Heaven Sect’s delegation like he was very sorry to say, “we have really made fellow Daoists laugh at us, we have already made them into sword embryos. They really can’t be taken out.”
The masters from the Greatest Heaven Sect, headed by Elder Ming, all had a pale facial expression, and looked at the Palace Master without saying a word. Mao Qi was staring at the people of the Pure Yang Palace with an extremely skeptical look. After a while, he said, “they have already been given out, they couldn’t go far, why not let these disciples come. Bring them out, making me and the others see them?”
“That is a good suggestion!”
The Palace Master waved without demur, “the disciples who have won them as rewards are to be called out, the remaining swords are also to be brought out.”
This time, Elder Zheng Feng no longer said anything more, he turned and left. After a while, he came back to the hall with a lot of sword embryos and at least a dozen flying swords.
“I have already told people to call the disciples here, they will arrive in a minute.”
Elder Zheng Feng was very simple this time. When he came back, he returned to the Palace Master and continued, “these are the sword embryos that have not yet been rewarded.”
This scene made the people of the Green Jade Immortal Island and the Greatest Heaven Sect a little confused. However, the Island Master of the Green Jade Immortal Island sat and watched quietly. Mao Qi and the several of the masters he brought, turned their heads and signaled them to look forward.
The two Yuanying realm ancestors were also well-versed in refining, everyone in the field knew. The two walked up unceremoniously, picked up one slippery sword embryo each, looked at their handles very carefully, as if afraid of missing out on the minutest clue.
After a while, the two talents took turns to look at the handles of more than a dozen flying swords. Then turned back to their original seats.
One of the Yuanying realm ancestors smiled and said, “sure enough, Palace Master has an outstanding disciple, Fairy Gao’s refining technique’s essence is as deep as Elder Wang’s. With her Jiedan realm cultivation base, in comparison to all the refining that this old man has seen, her swords are the best.”
His opening words were of recognition of the supreme grade of these flying swords. It was indeed made from the materials in the provided list of materials, but it was not so obvious.
These words provoked Yang Chen’s far-sighted laughter, these sword embryos were all made by Yuanying realm ancestors, even if the level of the refiner was worse, they could make up for it with their cultivation base. Moreover, they let Gao Yue finally process it, not really use spiritual awareness. How could they possibly detect this trick?
Although it was acknowledged that these swords were made of those materials, and the materials were very high grade, the quality of flying swords was equally good. But these materials were only a small part of the quantity, more than half of the quantity was still missing, the same was still enough to arrange a Welcoming Array.
“Reporting to the Palace Master, those disciples have brought them.”
The people waited for a while in the main hall. After less than half an hour, some people came in and reported to the Palace Master.
“Let them all come in, the seniors of the Greatest Heaven Sect want to see them.”
The Palace Master said to him directly.
Soon, a total of seventeen Jiedan realm disciples, walked in a line. There were men and women, standing in the open space, among the crowds. They stood in two rows and quickly greeted the Palace Master as well as all the others in the hall;
“Greetings to the Palace Master! Greetings to the Elders! Greetings to the predecessors!”
Quenching the Life Source Magic Weapon was usually after the Jiedan realm. These disciples were the younger generation disciples who had great potential. They were clearly the backbone of the Pure Yang Palace, but they would not let them temper their Life Source Magic Weapon at this time.
“The seventeen disciples, one of whom has a magic weapon with a golden seal, which consumes the most materials.”
Elder Zheng Feng introduced and even took out a list and handed it to Mao Qi.
Above the list, these disciples were recorded with their merits and when they obtained the sword embryo of the flying swords as a reward making everything clear. What were the names of the rewarded swords, the characteristics, the materials used and their number, the size and weights were also clearly written.
According to the records on the list, the materials that the Greatest Heaven Sect’s report said were basically in it. The numbers and the quoted number of the Greatest Heaven Sect was about the same, the maximum difference was about ten jin. Ten jin of difference in materials was impossible to be enough to completely arrange a large Welcoming Array.
“Hall Master Mao, my Pure Yang Palace is not afraid of the Greatest Heaven Sect, but I feel that the relationship between the two sides that was established with great difficulty, should not be destroyed by the actions of a despicable villain.”
Elder Zheng Feng had everything in hand, naturally he was not afraid to talk, “what words currently does Hall Master Mao have to say?”
After Mao Qi finished reading the list, it was not good to say anything. He only gave the list to the Elder Ming Guangruo who did not say anything and ignored the words of Elder Zheng Feng.
After seeing the list one by one, the Elder Ming had no expressions on his face. Then he finally said slowly: “Speaking of it, it’s all on paper. Where are the products of these materials? It would be good to know that these numbers are also true in reality.”
When the words came out, the faces of the people suddenly changed.
Ming Guangruo had always been sitting, but he had always been like a dead tree, converging and unobtrusive. But this time, his words had shocked everyone.
Saw with own eyes that seeing was believing? It was clear that these disciples would have to take out the magical treasures that were being tempered and let them see.
However, the reason why this Life Source Magic Weapon was called the Life Source Magic Weapon was because it was necessary to use special methods in the process of quenching, to bring the magic weapon into the sea of consciousness for at least to temper for a few decades. Letting the Life Source Magic Weapon and the owner have the same mind, this was the initial quenching of this Life Source Magic Weapon.
The light was the process of this initial tempering, it could not be interrupted, so people who were usually tempering their Life Source Magic Weapon would generally choose not to travel. The rogue cultivators would choose to go into seclusion, and those who belonged to Dao sects, stayed in their sects. They carefully tempered it and did not dare to slack off.
This process could not be interrupted, how could they bring the magic weapon out for others to see? Once interrupted, not only would the Life Source Magic Weapon be damaged, but it would also put the several decades of painstaking efforts to waste. Even their own spiritual awareness cultivation base would be affected.
These dozens of people, even Shi Shanshan had seen that the Pure Yang Palace was preparing to vigorously cultivate these disciples, not to mention other people. In this way, Elder Ming was clearly trying to take the opportunity to destroy the follow-up backbone of these Pure Yang Palace disciples.
This time, it was said by several people, including the Palace Master and several elders behind him.
“These disciples, the least one had been tempered for more than five years. Once they are taken out, they will be seriously injured, and ill.”
The Palace Master was really worried, “how could this happen?”
The disciples who have cultivated their own sect would have to abolish their cultivation base of several decades just to convince the Greatest Heaven Sect. It was impossible to make such a deal.
The Palace Master shook his heads again and again. He was very determined and said to Elder Ming, “I don’t know if Elder Ming knows, but these are the core disciples of my Pure Yang Palace, and they will not do this.”
“My Greatest Heaven Sect too was ruined, the hatred, the lives of tens of thousands of disciples, this enmity must be repaid.”
Elder Ming did not speak at first, but he now had started to speak. His opening tone expressed that his words could not be refused, “if I do not personally check something then it is hard to be considered safe.”
“Is predecessor untrustworthy of my Sect disciples?”
After all, the Palace Master oversaw the whole sect. Some things could not be tolerated by him. His bottom line couldn’t be crossed, “Your Greatest Heaven Sect’s disciple is a disciple, isn’t my Pure Yang Palace’s disciple a disciple? Now, I have to let you deal with them?”
“This is not the case.”
Ming Guangruo was a master of the Dacheng realm, he naturally carried a majestic manner, “it is only a confirmation that the Pure Yang Palace is not the murderer of my sect. If this delays the practice of these disciples. The old man is willing to apologize afterwards.”
It was indeed a big deal for Jiedan realm disciples to receive an apology from a master of the Dacheng realm, moreover, with the status of the Greatest Heaven Sect’s Elder. Switched to the general small martial art sect, under such coercion, they could only comply.
However, the Pure Yang Palace was not the same as before, there was also the Island Master on their side, who was begging for the Pure Yang Palace and Yang Chen’s help. Currently, if the Palace Master did not know the banner of the tiger-skin tree. Then he was a fool.
“Since I just confirmed these disciples of my ancestral hall, they will swear an oath on their heart and swear to ensure that those Life Source Magic Weapon are true. I think this must satisfy the predecessor.”
The Palace Master continued, “There are people from the Green Jade Immortal Island here to act as witness, will that be good enough?”
A vow on their heart, if broken, these disciples could only be trapped in the Jiedan realm during the entirety of their lives. They were the core disciples of the Pure Yang Palace. This method was indeed the safest way that the Palace Master could find without ruining these disciples’ decades of cultivation.
The eyes of the people returned to Elder Ming, waiting for his decision. Mao Qi did not dare to interject and honestly waited for the Elder’s order.
“I do not rely on hearsay!”
Ming Guangruo thought for a moment and still shook his head, “Seeing is believing, if I don’t look at them with my own eyes, I can’t be assured. I have lost tens of thousands of disciples, I must be sure! Still, after that, this old man will personally give them a gift as an apology. But the old man must look.”
“An apology form the predecessor, is it worthy of my sect disciples added up two thousand years of hard work?”
The Palace Master was furious, and facing the elder of the Dacheng realm he did not back off, “is it worth my more than ten Life Source Magic Weapons?”
“How difficult is this?”
The voice of the Palace Master had just fallen, the voice of the Island Master of the Green Jade Immortal Island had rung, “the Greatest Heaven Sect is a big sect, Elder Ming is the one that increases their skill through spirit pills, some are good for magic weapons as well. When the disciples practiced, they will use the spirit pills to make up the lost cultivation. If the magic weapon gets destroyed, then use a magic weapon to compensate. A fair transaction!”
“Island Master, what do you mean?”
Ming Guangruo was furious when he heard the words of the Island Master. With his cultivation and his status, even the Sect Master of the Greatest Heaven Sect did not dare to speak with him in this tone. The Island Master’s cultivation base was just in the middle of the Yuanying realm. Even after hearing his words in such a tone, the Island Master stared coldly at Ming Guangruo face.
“What’s wrong Elder Ming, my Island Master can’t even say anything?”
Ming Guangruo was a master of the Dacheng realm, but Yan Huafeng, who came with the Island Master of the Green Jade Immortal Island, was not weak. He stood up and looked coldly at Ming Guangruo, his angry aura went straight towards Ming Guangruo.
“Is the Island Master of the Green Jade Immortal Island planning to make this deal?”
Ming Guang ignored the anger of Yan Huafeng and stared at the Island Master of the Green Jade Immortal Island while asking aloud.
“I don’t dare, just afraid that one day Elder Ming will find my Green Jade Immortal Island and will use the same reason to ask my sect disciples to abolish their cultivation base. If tens of thousands of your Greatest Heaven Sect disciples die, I don’t really care. My Green Jade Immortal Island can withstand no such loss.”
The words of the Island Master were preposterous but ironic, “an apology can be smoothed out, a good master of the Dacheng realm, a well-known elder, really worthy of the name.”
Who was the Island Master of the Green Jade Immortal Island? The leader of the Green Jade Immortal Island! What kind of grave situation had the Island Master not seen? Despite the lack of cultivation, it was because of the management of the martial art sect that demanded a lot of effort. Which then had led to delays in cultivation promotion. However, in terms of courage, there were still few who could scare the Island Master.
Ming Guangruo was a master of the Dacheng realm, and there was also the advantage of the Greatest Heaven Sect’s illustrious prestige. He also dared to say this to the Pure Yang Palace, but even if you lend him ten times more courage, he would not dare to challenge the Island Master. He could not dare to provoke the enmity between both sides at will.
“If that’s the case, then we will do it according to the Island Master!”
Ming Guangruo was stubbornly staring at the Island Master. He again did not rise in sharp opposition but rather complied.
