Chapter 1804 – Black Turtle Joins
Zhang Feng and Hu Liangchen were surprised when they heard the Black Turtle Ancestor. Hu Liangchen quickly said, “Senior, the entire Northern Divergent Province already knew that your sect is the first in the province to discover the invasion. Moreover, you tried to fight back against the invasion. The Black Turtle Sect has gained the gratitude of the entire Northern Divergent Province. Who would dare detain your disciples? Are they bored of living?”
The Black Turtle Ancestor gave a mournful smile as he replied, “They want to force this old man to submit. The bastards are the Myriad Demons Sect, the top sect of the Northern Divergent Province.”
Hearing this, Zhang Feng and Hu Liangchen were stunned. Hu Liangchen asked, “You mean, the Myriad Demons Sect have detained the disciples of the Black Turtle Sect? Are you sure this information is accurate?”
The Black Turtle Ancestor nodded and said, “I’m sure of it. I saw it with my own eyes. In fact, my disciples didn’t enter the Myriad Demon Sect. They went to Bright Yang City while one of my descendants, the current Sect Master, sent a message to the Myriad Demons Sect explaining what happened. Who thought that they would be captured by the Myriad Demons Sect. Then using the excuse of guarding Bright Yang City from the Heavenly Demons, they began to capture disciples of the sect. A few clever ones managed to escape. This old man knew about this from their mouths.”
Hu Liangchen looked around him as he said, “Senior, this is not the place to speak. Please follow us inside.” The old man calmed down and nodded. Then the group walked inside.
Before long, the group arrived inside the guest hall of the sect. They sat down and then Hu Liangchen introduced Zhang Feng as the current generation’s Gang Leader of the Black Tiger Gang. The Black Turtle Ancestor just gave Zhang Feng a nod. Don’t forget, the Black Turtle Ancestor was an Immortal Expert. He sees Zhang Feng as a junior, he has no need to be overly polite to thim.
After the group sat down, the Black Turtle Ancestor looked at Zhang Feng and said, “Gang Leader Zhang Feng, this old man came to join the Black Tiger Gang. The Myriad Demons Sect thought that they could make me obey using my disciples. However, I won’t let them have their way. This old man is the root of the Black Turtle Sect. Where this old man goes is where the Black Turtle Sect will be. Although I feel sorry for my disciples, this old man wouldn’t be humiliated like this. This old man wants to take revenge.”
Hu Liangchen and Zhang Feng looked at each other and saw confusion in their faces. Zhang Feng replied, “Senior, what made you choose the Black Tiger Gang?”
The Black Turtle Ancestor laughed and said, “Of course this old man will choose the Black Tiger Gang. Looking at the entire Northern Divergent Province, only the Black Tiger Gang dared to stare back into the eyes of the Myriad Demons Sect. Naturally, this old man would want to join the Black Tiger Gang.”
Zhang Feng thought for a moment before saying, “Senior, to be honest, although I’m leading the Black Tiger Gang, there are some things I cannot take responsibility for. I have to discuss it with everyone in the gang. But Senior shouldn’t worry. Since you came to the Black Tiger Gang, no matter what we decide on, we will help you rescue your disciples. Senior, please take a rest first while we discuss. We will give you an answer as soon as we can.”
The Black Turtle Ancestor understood Zhang Feng. In the end, he was an Immortal Expert who suddenly asked to join the Black Tiger Gang. There was nothing normal about this interaction. It was understandable if Zhang Feng decided to discuss it with everyone first.
After the Black Turtle Ancestor was led to his room, Zhang Feng and Hu Liangchen sat down and thought about how to deal with this matter.
Zhang Feng asked, “Uncle Hu, what do you think?”
Hu Liangchen hesitated and said, “Looking at the Black Turtle Ancestor’s face, it doesn’t seem like he’s planning something. However, Little Hai isn’t here. In the Black Tiger Gang, only he could face immortal experts. Elder Hu Shan is in seclusion and cannot go out. If we accept him, we wouldn’t be able to hold him down. He might cause unwanted troubles to the sect.”
Zhang Feng nodded. Then he waved his hand and took out a jade sword message. He wrote something inside before releasing it.
Hu Liangchen looked at Zhang Feng and said, “Little Feng, who did you send the message to?”
Zhang Feng smiled faintly and said, “To Little Hai. I have to ask for his opinion. After all, only he could know if we could manage the Black Turtle Ancestor. If Little Hai is alright with accepting the Black Turtle Ancestor, then we will take the Black Turtle Ancestor in.”
Hu Liangchen nodded, “From what I know about him, there is an 80% chance that Little Hai would agree. That kid is bold.”
Zhang Feng smiled and said, “We still don’t know about Martial Uncle’s situation. If he succeeds in crossing the immortal stage, then the Black Tiger Gang would become even stronger. It wouldn’t matter if we take the Black Tiger Gang in. By the way, Uncle hu, what do you think about the Black Turtle Sect’s disciple? Are we going to rescue them?”
Hu Liangchen thought about it before shaking his head and saying, “We will, but this is not the right time. Did you tell Little Hai about this as well? If we want to rescue them at this time, only Little Hai can make a move. Bright Yang City is now under the full control of the Myriad Demons Sect. Besides Little Hai, the Black Tiger Gang has no ability to rescue people from the city.”
Zhang Feng nodded. And just as he was about to speak, a jade sword message flew in front of him. After reading the message’s contents, Zhang Feng’s expression lit up. Then he said, “Uncle Hu, Little Hai said that we can accept the Black Turtle Ancestor. We’ll give him the status of Supreme Elder. He can also accept disciples from the sect. Little Hai said that we have something we could rely on, so there’s no need to be afraid of the Black Turtle Ancestor.” Zhang Feng didn’t give the jade sword message to Hu Liangchen. This was because the contents of the message involved things that Hu Liangchen shouldn’t know.
Hu Liangchen couldn’t know about Zhao Hai’s Undead. In the message, Zhao Hai told Zhang Feng that the Five Discolored Venerables were in the sect. These five experts were at the immortal stage. With them present, even if the Black Turtle Ancestor tries to do something, the Five Discolored Venerables would still clean him up with ease.
However, Zhang Feng couldn’t let Hu Liangchen know about the Five Discolored Venerables. Therefore, he only said that Zhao Hai had a backing in the Black Tiger Gang. He just didn’t say what kind of backing.
Hu Liangchen didn’t ask either. He just nodded and said, “Alright, that’s good. Then it’s settled. I’ll go and invite the Black Turtle Ancestor and see what he thinks.” Zhang Feng nodded and then Hu Liangchen stood up and left. Hu Liangchen inviting the Black Turtle Ancestor over personally showed how much he valued him. After all, the Black Turtle Ancestor was an immortal expert. He needed to be treated with respect.
Before long, the Black Turtle Ancestor arrived at the reception hall along with Hu Liangchen. Zhang Feng was in the entrance waiting for the old turtle. Seeing the Black Turtle Ancestor, Zhang Feng bowed and said, “Senior, please take a seat.”
The Black Turtle Ancestor returned a casual salute before sitting down. Zhang Feng and Hu Liangchen sat down as well. Then Zhang Feng said, “Senior, we invited you over to tell you that if you still want to join our sect, we will happily welcome you. Senior can become one of our sect’s Supreme Elders. You will be given an allowance fitting a Supreme Elder. However, I have to tell senior something. As you know, Bright Yang City is now under the complete control of the Myriad Demons Sect. It would be very difficult for us to rescue your disciples during this period. But my Black Tiger Gang swears that as long as there’s an opportunity, we will certainly rescue the disciples of the Black Turtle Sect. In the meantime, if Senior wants to accept disciples of the sect, you can. What does Senior think about this?”
Hearing Zhang Feng, the Black Turtle Ancestor’s pupils couldn’t help but narrow. He didn’t think that the Black Tiger Gang would actually let him join. From what the Black Turtle Ancestor could remember, the Black Tiger Gang didn’t have any immortal experts. Such sects wouldn’t normally accept immortal experts from outside. The Black Tiger Gang accepting him this easily only meant one thing. They weren’t pressured by his strength. They weren’t afraid that he would do something to the sect.
Thinking of this, the Black Turtle Ancestor couldn’t help but reevaluate the Black Tiger Gang’s strength. But since he was sincere in joining the Black Tiger Gang, he nodded and said, “This old man has no problems. Then this old man is now officially a member of the Black Tiger Gang. If the Gang Leader needs me, please don’t hesitate to send word.”
Zhang Feng and Hu Liangchen stood up and gave the Black Turtle Ancestor a bow. Then Zhang Feng said, “Since we’re in a hectic period, we won’t be able to offer you a proper ceremony. We pay respects to the Supreme Elder.”
Hu Liangchen also followed, “We pay respects to the Supreme Elder.”
Seeing that the Black Tiger Gang was giving him a lot of face, the old ancestor couldn’t help but feel comforted. He immediately stood up and said, “Thank you. Please don’t be too polite. Gang Leader, please be casual to me. If you have any orders, just tell me.”
Zhang Feng smiled faintly and said, “Senior, there’s no need to worry. For now, the Black Tiger Gang has nothing to do. The Black Tiger Gang has long known about the invasion of the Heavenly Demons, so we have made ample preparations. Senior can take a rest first. If I need Senior, I would immediately have someone call you.”
The Black Turtle Ancestor nodded and said, “Then this old man will ask to be excused.” He gave Zhang Feng and Hu Liangchen a casual salute before turning around and leaving. Outside was a Black Tiger Gang disciple that would lead the Black Turtle Ancestor to his residence.
Looking at the Black Turtle Ancestor’s departing back, Hu Liangchen said, “Little Feng, do we have people in Bright Yang City? If there is, ask them to check to see if what he said is true. If it is, we can accept him wholeheartedly. If it’s not true, then we’ll have to be on guard. Although Little Hai has some arrangements, it would be disastrous if the old turtle makes a move during a crucial moment.”
Zhang Feng nodded, then he said, “I’ll immediately have someone check. Actually, we have quite a few people in Bright Young City. Their identities are very confidential. Moreover, some of them managed to join the Heavenly Yang Alliance. I believe nobody would suspect them of being part of us.”
Hu Liangchen nodded and said, “I hope that the Black Turtle Ancestor is telling the truth. This way, the strength of the Black Tiger Gang would increase.”
