Chapter 1381 – Heavenly Sword Liu Feiyang
The statement sounded very rude. Although the words were supposed to raise Huang Daoran’s position, it was very inappropriate given the situation. This wasn’t only hitting Zhao Hai’s face, but Huang Daoran as well. And Feng Baiming’s face was also being affected. The people in the hall quickly quieted down because of this Elder’s words. Everyone turned to look at who spoke.
It was an old man wearing dark blue cultivator clothing. Seeing this person, Qing Xuan and Feng Bainming couldn’t help but knit their brows. They were familiar with this man. He was a Hall Elder of the Profound Clear Sect and was in charge of the general education of all disciples. He’s a very important Elder of the Sect.
The scripture hall was where all of the secret techniques of the Profound Clear Sect were stored. There was no need to mention how important it was. This Elder was also the oldest Great Elder in the sect. The reason why he was still a Nascent Soul Expert right now wasn’t because of his lack of talent. Some time ago, the sect was infiltrated by enemies and they were planning to steal from the scripture hall. However, the person was discovered by the Elder. With his Nascent Soul-level strength, he fought hard against a Transcending Tribulation Expert and ended up being seriously injured. But he was able to drive the person off. Then later on, a Great Elder was able to successfully injure that person.
But since he was injured, his hopes of reaching the Transcending Tribulation Stage vanished. Because of his achievements, his status in the Profound Clear Sect was very high. Even Great Elders would give him face.
And with him being responsible for dao lectures and providing scriptures, it can be said that he was a half-Master of all Core Disciples. This made his identity very special in the Profound Clear Sect.
Seeing who spoke, Qing Xuan and Feng Baiming felt awkward. This was a person they couldn’t offend. Things weren’t going very well.
Zhao Hai looked at the Elder and then noticed Qing Xuan and Feng Baiming’s reaction. However, he didn’t care and instead smiled faintly and said, “Elder is right. The Profound Clear Sect is too big for a kid like me. It’s already fortunate for me to meet Sect Master and the Elders of the Profound Clear Sect. This Elder doesn’t need to mind me.”
It might seem polite, but Zhao Hai’s words carried harsh implications. Not only was he going against the Elder, but he was also saying that the Elder was being small.
Hearing Zhao Hai, the Elder’s expression couldn’t help but change. His face showed his anger as he said, “Are you saying that I’m being petty?”
Zhao Hai smiled faintly and said, “I’m just saying that I feel honored meeting the Sect Master and all the Elders. Elder doesn’t need to remind me one more time.”
The color of the Elder’s face turned green. After some time, he calmed down and then coldly snorted as he said, “Young Man, you don’t know the height of the sky nor the thickness of the earth. Let this old man teach you about the world today. I heard that you are strong. Our unqualified disciples really want to see it. I wonder if you dare to fight?”
Zhao Hai smiled faintly and said, “I heard that the Profound Clear Sect is a pinnacle orthodox sect in the Cultivation Realm. Zhao Hai naturally wants to ask for some pointers.”
The Elder looked amused, he laughed and said, “Good, good. Kids nowadays have more courage. What does Daoist Huang think about this?”
Huang Daoran looked at the Elder, then he said, “It’s also good for young kids to see different things.” Then he turned his head to continue talking with Feng Baiming. It was as if he was no longer paying attention to this matter.
The Elder’s eyes flashed an angry color, then he turned his head to Qing Xuan and said, “Sect Master, please allow our Sect’s Disciples to exchange a move or two with Mister Zhao Hai.”
Looking at the Elder, Qing Xuan nodded and said, “Elder, please arrange it.” The Elder’s eyes flashed with glee as he gave Zhao Hai a look before leaving.
When the Elder left, Zhao Hai cupped his fist toward Qing Xuan and said, “Sect Master, this Zhao Hai has offended you. Please don’t take it personally.”
Naturally, Qing Xuan knew about this because he made an agreement with Feng Baiming. Qing Xuan waved his hand and said, “Mister is too polite. This is just comparing notes. It’s a normal matter. Please don’t mind it.”
Zhao Hai looked at Huang Daoran and said, “Master, this disciple shall experience the techniques of the Profound Clear Sect.” Huang Daoran waved his hand and continued talking with Feng Baiming. It seemed like he didn’t treat this matter seriously.
At this time, a clamoring sound was heard outside. Zhao Hai glanced at Qing Xuan who smiled faintly and said, “Mister, let them know that the sky is wider outside the sect. They need to know that there are stronger people in the world.” Then he led Zhao Hai out. However, Huang Daoran and Feng Baiming didn’t go with them.
After everyone left, Huang Daoran covered himself and Feng Baiming with a barrier. Then he said, “Blacksmith, I think that the old guy has really been riled up by Little Hai. Will it be a big deal?”
Feng Baiming shook his head and said, “Don’t worry, I have also told the other Great Elders about this matter. As long as Little Hai doesn’t go too far, nothing will go wrong.”
Huang Daoran nodded, then he sighed and said, “I now know why your Core Disciples are so unrestrained. With such a Elder teaching them, it’s no wonder they turned like that.”
Feng Baiming smiled bitterly. Then he looked at Huang Daoran and said, “Should we go take a look? Although we acted like we didn’t care, I really felt a bit worried.”
Huang Daoran laughed and said, “You’re not worried about Little Hai but your disciples, right? Hahaha. Forget it, let’s go.” Then the two stood up and walked out.
At this time, Zhao Hai stood in front of a large open space. Opposite him were more than 20 Cultivators wearing dark blue robes. The age of these Cultivators varied greatly. The oldest among them was 40 years old while the youngest seemed to be in their teens.
However, Zhao Hai knew that one shouldn’t look at a Cultivator with their age. Some Cultivation Methods could improve a person’s complexion drastically. If one underestimates their enemy because of their looks, then they would surely suffer a loss.
Mo Sheng stood behind Zhao Hai like an iron tower. Naturally, Mo Sheng was clueless about what was happening and looked at the Cultivators with a curious gaze. He had seen a lot of these Cultivators before, but his memory was too bad for him to remember them.
These Cultivators were glaring at Zhao Hai. Who knows what the Elder told them, but he was now standing in front of all these Cultivations. He looked at Zhao Hai with a smile. It’s obvious that he wasn’t planning anything good for Zhao Hai. He seemed happy to teach Zhao Hai a lesson.
Zhao Hai didn’t mind these stares. He turned to Mo Sheng and said, “Brother Mo, stand further back while I play with them. Don’t help me, we’re just playing around.”
Hearing Zhao Hai, Mo Sheng scratched his head and said, “Brother Hai, why didn’t you tell me that you’re going to play?”
Zhao Hai smiled bitterly and said, “I’ll call you next time. But you need to stay back this time. I’ll play with them for a while and then take you to eat delicious food.”
Mo Sheng quickly replied, “I want to eat chicken!”
Zhao Hai smiled and said, “Alright, we’ll eat chicken. But if you want to eat chicken, you have to stay further back.” Mo Shen complied and then retreated more than ten meters away from Zhao Hai.
The Cultivators heard what Zhao Hai said to Mo Sheng. Those who knew Mo Sheng understood that Zhao Hai was coaxing him. However, for those who didn’t know Mo Sheng, they were thinking that Zhao Hai was making fun of them. Their facial expressions turned uglier.
Zhao Hai looked at the Cultivators as he cupped his fist and said, “This Little Brother is Zhao Hai. I came to the Profound Clear Sect in order to meet the Sect Master. Lucky for me, the Elder is giving me an opportunity to exchange notes. This Zhao Hai is extremely honored.”
The Elder looked at Zhao Hai, then he coldly snorted and said, “Alright, talking right now is useless. Zhao Hai, I’ll let you know that there’s other people in the world. Don’t think that you’re a genius.”
Zhao Hai smiled faintly and said, “I just want to exchange notes.”
The ELder snorted, then he turned his head to the Core Disciples and said, “Which one of you will exchange a move or two with Zhao Hai?”
A clamor arose among the Core Disciples before one of them volunteered, “Me! Let me do it!”
The Elder looked at this person and his brows couldn’t help but wrinkle. The strength of this disciple was at the middle in comparison to the other Core Disciples. He wouldn’t be relieved if he fought against Zhao Hai.
Although the Elder seemed to not put Zhao Hai in his eyes, he knew clearly how strong Zhao Hai was judging by the fact that he was able to defend against Huang Daoran. Even if Huang Daoran was holding back, he was still a Transcending Tribulation Expert. His attack would still be powerful even if powered down. Being able to block such an attack meant that Zhao Haiw as strong. If he sent weak Cultivators, then they might not be Zhao Hai’s opponent. He wanted to teach Zhao Hai a lesson, so a loss was not accepted. Otherwise he would be losing face.
At this time, a young Cultivator approached the person who volunteered. This Cultivator seemed to be in his twenties. He cupped his fist towards the person and said, “Junior Brother, let me go first.” This person looked very young to be the senior brother to the person. However, the disciple didn’t object. It seems like his position wasn’t low.
In the Cultivation Realm, seniority among disciples wasn’t decided by age but by strength instead. If you were defeated by your junior, then that junior would be your senior brother from then on. This competitive system caused Cultivators to cultivate diligently.
The other Core Disciple looked at this person and then cupped his fists and said, “So it’s Senior Brother.” Then he retreated.
The Elder looked at this young man and couldn’t help but smile. He nodded and said, “Alright, Liu Feiyang, you’ll fight first.”
Upon hearing this name, Zhao Hai couldn’t help but raise his eyebrow. He heard about Lu Feiyang Before. His nickname was Heavenly Sword Liu Feiyang. He’s one of the most famous Core Disciples of the Profound Clear Sect.
Liu Feiyang went up the stage and then cupped his fist towards Zhao Hai before saying, “This Liu Feiyang has heard Mister’s name. It’s an honor for me to be able to exchange notes with you.”
