Zhanxian - Chapter 290
The strength of the Green Jade Immortal Island could be no worse than that of the Greatest Heaven Sect. The current Greatest Heaven Sect was in great difficulty. Under the circumstance, even if there were secret forces to supplement them, they dare not say that they would win, not to mention that the Green Jade Immortal Island and the Blue Cloud Sect had common interests. It was equivalent to offending both at the same time.
Pure Yang Palace and the Beast Taming Sect allied together would be even more troublesome. Although the strength of the two small sects was not very good, but each sect had a master of the Dacheng realm, the strength of both in unity would be extraordinary.
If Ming Guangruo was arrogant again, he must also consider the consequences inquiring the anger of the Island Master at this time. Although Mao Qi and the others were Yuanying realm masters, this time they were all staring nervously at the old elder. Only when Elder Ming uttered those words could they finally be relieved.
This breath was really unbearable. It was obviously aimed at the Pure Yang Palace. They thought that this time Elder Ming had come strong with 14 Yuanying realm masters and could suppress the Pure Yang Palace. Who would have expected that the Island Lord appeared this time, and even stood side by side with Pure Yang Palace.
However, the discontentment was not enough. The master of the Dacheng realm also had to compromise in front of the Island Master of the Green Jade Immortal Island. This was the shocking power of the Green Jade Immortal Island. Even the Elders of the Greatest Heaven Sect must consider it.
“The ears are imaginary, seeing is believing.”
The Island Master seemed to be trying hard to crack down on Ming Guangruo’s face and said bluntly, “this is just Elder Ming’s’ own words, not to take out the things you want to compensate. Why would the Pure Yang Palace believe that you will give compensation? In lieu of this, could the Dacheng realm master Elder Ming be not so playful?”
If this was the case, the Pure Yang Palace couldn’t get angry with the casual talk of Elder Ming. But now it was from the mouth of the Island Master of the Green Jade Immortal Island. Even if it was not good, it must be considered.
“Can’t take it out? Then change the way.”
The Island Master did not give Ming Guangruo the chance to reply and said directly, “there are all people who have a vow to swear, how? Pure Yang Palace disciple can swear, I’m sure that many of your disciples can also swear?”
This was another army. Since the Greatest Heaven Sect had the idea to destroy a group of reserve core disciples in the Pure Yang Palace, then they must also have the mental preparation for the destruction of a group of Yuanying realm ancestors. Who didn’t know what Ming Guangruo planned? Who had not seen such before? Who wasn’t part of the same world?
It was more difficult for Ming Guangruo to swear than to let him directly compensate for the loss. Losing a magic weapon was just a magic weapon. Let him swear by his heart and risk his inability to improve his cultivation base. He was a prime master at the Dacheng realm. How could he and the Pure Yang Palace’s Jiedan realm disciples swear together.
Moreover, swears on hearts and souls were not so easy to give away. Such a swear with even a little bit of violation could result in countless demons. How could Ming Guangruo say that he had no idea of damaging the Pure Yang Palace core disciples?
It was just that when they set off, they had thought to coerce and lure the Pure Yang Palace to examine their material possessions. Determine whether they were the real murderers behind the scenes or use this opportunity to completely suppress the Pure Yang Palace. Who would have thought that they would encounter such a matter that they would be forced to compensate with medicinal pills and magic weapon on the spot? Now, how could they ever hope to accomplish that?
However, Ming Guangruo was Ming Guangruo, the elders of the Greatest Heaven Sect were not stupid, they immediately thought of countermeasures. On one of his hands, a muddy brown ordinary flying sword instantly appeared.
“This is the old man’s Life Source Flying Sword. If their own flying sword is destroyed, the old man will use his own flying sword to pay for it. Is that enough?”
Ming Guangruo’s sharp gaze stared straight at the Island Master, as if shooting flames.
The Life Source Flying Sword of a great Dacheng realm master was definitely more precious than the Jiedan realm disciples’ Life Source Flying Swords.
If Ming Guangruo actually felt attachment with his own flying sword, obviously he had already reached an extreme.
“Against the seventeen Life Source Flying Swords of the disciples, aren’t you being a big bully?”
The Island Master would not be able to say that Ming Guangruo’s flying sword was not much better than these Jiedan realm disciples and could only talk about the quantity.
Ming Guangruo was extremely angry, but could only say one word, and no more.
Mao Qi and the other dozens of Yuanying realm ancestors who followed him looked at each other. Everyone brushed their hands and summoned their own Life Source Magic Weapons. Fourteen Yuanying realm ancestor’s Life Source Magic Weapons, all were put out in the front. Elder Ming took out his own Life Source Magic Weapon, how could his followers not follow suit?
This showed that the difference between the Greatest Heaven Sect and other sects. Disciples capable of reaching the Yuanying realm were provided the best flying swords by the sect from the beginning, so that these disciples would temper them as their own Life Source Magic Weapons. Even less talented disciples with outstanding potential in the Jiedan realm would deliberately be cultivated.
Other sects would also love to do the same, but they fell short of resources in comparison to the Greatest Heaven Sect. Before in the Pure Yang Palace, there were eight Yuanying realm masters, but none of them had a Life Source Flying Sword. There were no suitable materials available at all, only low-grade materials were used to make Life Source Flying Swords. Such weapons would break after only few uses, they were not worth holding a candle to.
Fifteen Life Source Magic Weapons were placed in front of everyone. Everyone in the Greatest Heaven Sect’s delegation was angry, the subject of the anger was not Pure Yang Palace but the Island Master of the Green Jade Immortal Island.
In this regard, the Green Jade Immortal Island Master did not care, the secret competition between the Greatest Heaven Sect and the Green Jade Immortal Island was not something new. This small matter would not generate any waves in the hearts of the Green Jade Immortal Island’s people?
Everyone knew that these masters’ Life Source Magic Weapons were impossible for the Pure Yang Palace to acquire otherwise. If it was so simple to get a cultivator’s magic weapon, then it would be too easy to cultivate. If they were in the mood, these magic weapons could fly back to their side at any time.
At this point, people in the Greatest Heaven Sect group knew that the people of the Green Jade Immortal Island were with the people of the Pure Yang Palace and were manoeuvring this matter together. The Greatest Heaven Sect had to put up with this farce; there wouldn’t be much loss, at most they would lose some face. However, to attain such an outcome, they still had to satisfy the people of the Pure Yang Palace.
“You only have fifteen swords, the others have seventeen, two are missing!”
Of course, the Island Master could not let the Pure Yang Palace miss out on even a little benefit from it. Since everyone was now in an alliance, it was natural to consider such.
This time, even Ming Guangruo was generous, and he did not hesitate to take two more magic weapons from his body and put them in front. Although these two magic weapons were not his own, they were not the same as the other small ones. They were appropriate to be used as Life Source Magic Weapons.
“Are these enough?”
Ming Guangruo asked and looked at the Green Jade Immortal Island Master.
“Well, now you have shown a bit of sincerity.”
The Island Master was satisfied with the compensation measures and withdrew.
“My Greatest Heaven Sect’s compensation has also been put here, does Palace Master He also express his sincerity?”
Ming Guangruo, this time, finally turned his eyes to the Pure Yang Palace, Palace Master.
At this point, the Palace Master could certainly not hesitate any more, he directed the seventeen Jiedan realm disciples to show their Life Source Magic Weapons that they were refining.
Although there were many unwilling expressions on their faces, these disciples did not oppose the instructions of the Palace Master. Each disciple took out his magic weapon out of his sea of consciousness.
The pain due to taking out the life source magic weapon in the middle of refining could be imagined. Even if they were at the Jiedan realm, they were still considered masters. A painful expression could be seen on these disciples’ faces.
After a while, all the disciples were sweating, soon some began to pull out their own magic weapons. Of course, the fastest one was the one who had spent the shortest time refining. Basically, they were taken out according to the time spent on refining them, from shortest to longest.
After extracting the magic weapons, all the 17 disciples vomited blood. They looked at the Palace Master and asked others to help carry and heal them. This scene let the people of the Pure Yang Palace glare at the Greatest Heaven Sect. However, everyone in the Greatest Heaven Sect did not care about their gazes, they just stared at those magic weapons.
Seventeen magical treasures that had been tempered for a short time were placed opposite magic weapons of the Greatest Heaven Sect. This time, Mao Qi did not wait for Elder Ming to direct the two refiners to check before he did it.
The two masters did the same as before, picking up each one by one, examining them thoroughly. This time though they were even more careful.
It took almost twice as long as the previous inspection, and both traits were checked. After the inspection, no one said anything, just looked at each other and nodded.
This confirmed that the materials used in these things were the same as those shown by the Pure Yang Palace. That was to say, the materials of the Pure Yang Palace were not short, all of them were here.
Those were used in various degrees in these flying swords, some were also partially refined by now but now all of them have become waste. Forcibly interrupting after a weapon reaches partial refinement would render the weapon useless. Basically, these weapons will now be completely scrapped.
“Elder Ming, Hall Master Mao, the materials mentioned by your sect are all here. What further advices, do you wish to impart?”
The tone of the Palace Master was unceremonious. There was also a thick intent of warning in his words. As if saying that, if they have no further demands, they should quickly leave.
Ming Guangruo would not say anything at this time, the facts had proven that all the materials of the Pure Yang Palace were there, and they were not the culprits. Of course, he would not speak.
“This time, it was really harassment of the hospitality of Palace Master He.”
Greatest Heaven Sect Foreign Affairs, Hall Master, Mao Qi brought a smile on his face, “Palace Master He rest assured, I will go back to report to the Sect Master that Pure Yang Palace had nothing to do with this matter. For the arrogance before, please forgive me. I will leave immediately!”
The group of people stood up and rushed to cup their hands to the Pure Yang Palace’s Master, and then directed the same to the side of the Green Jade Immortal Island Master. Ming Guangruo seemed to have thought of something general and curiously asked, “I didn’t know why the Island Master personally visited the Pure Yang Palace. Could I ask, what had happened?”
“This old person came to talk with Palace Master He about the marriage of my sect’s Shi Shanshan with Yang Chen.”
The leader of the Green Jade Immortal Island said very casually, “why? Does Elder Ming’s words mean that we must have first gone to the Greatest Heaven Sect to report this, before we came here?”
It was a secret that they came to the Pure Yang Palace to negotiate about the Questioning Inner Heart Pill. Of course, they couldn’t let the people of the Greatest Heaven Sect know that and the Island Master directly pulled out this very plausible reason. Just like Shi Shanshan was also there, and there had been a rumour about Yang Chen’s affairs, no one could find any fault with this reasoning.
Shi Shanshan was a well-known cultivation genius and Yang Chen’s affairs were not so secret as well. It was quite normal for the two to form a tie. Everyone understood this clearly that the Green Jade Immortal Island wanted to pull Yang Chen through Shi Shanshan. Since Yang Chen could refine the Questioning Inner Heart Pill, it was not surprising that the Island Master of the Green Jade Immortal Island had personally made this trip.
With this explanation, it was a perfect cover for the personal visit of the Island Master. There was nothing more for Ming Guangruo to discuss, he could only cup his hands towards the Island Master, and quickly leave the main hall of the Pure Yang Palace.
Xu Chengxin immediately cleared the hall and showed the delegation out as soon as his eyes met the gaze of the Palace Master. He then himself left to resume taking care of his responsibilities.
The people in the group of the Greatest Heaven Sect walked simply, and no one mentioned the magic weapons left behind. Everyone knew that out of these seventeen magic weapons, only the last two that Ming Guangruo took out, were the gifts for the Pure Yang Palace. The other fifteen pieces are their magic weapons. It was just a trivial loss for them.
“Thank you for the help of the Island Master!”
The Palace Master did not accompany the Greatest Heaven Sect’s delegation but took the lead to cup his hand to the Island Master. Several other elders also expressed their gratitude to the several elders of the Green Jade Immortal Island.
This time it was really thanks to the master of the Green Jade Immortal Island. Otherwise, the Pure Yang Palace could only bear with the enemy weakly according to the predetermined plan. Which was formulated by him, elder Zheng Feng and Yang Chen, culminating with letting the other party leave rampantly. It was with the appearance of the Island Master, not only did they survive the crisis, but they also won two magic weapons as compensation.
“It is only a slight effort on my part, why must you mention it.”
The Island Master smiled and waved, “it was such a spectacle, and it was really important to handle Shan’er and Yang Chen’s actions, so as to avoid Greatest Heaven Sect’s suspicions.”
The Palace Master could only nod. The Island Master said that on the one hand, it was the solution, on the other hand, it was to take the opportunity of the two people to finalize it.
The people of the Greatest Heaven Sect actually acted as notaries in unintentional ways.
In any case, the Palace Master bit his teeth. Extraordinarily Yang Chen was surrounded by beautiful women. What if he married Sun Qingxue? Gong Sunling of his own sect was no exception!
When Yang Chen heard the people leave, he also came to the hall. His spiritual awareness was recovered, and he could not hear the last words of the Island Master.
Yang Chen entered through the door and saw the seventeen magic weapons left by the Greatest Heaven Sect’s delegation on the table. His eyes were bright, “Good things, let us see if these things can stay!”
He did not wait for everyone to react. What was the meaning of Yang Chen? Yang Chen collected the seventeen magic weapons and threw them into the medicine garden. Xiao Tian had long been ordered by Yang Chen to consume these weapons’ spiritual imprints and refine them. He had been lying in wait. As soon as they were thrown, he swallowed them all.
