As he ran out of the door, Hai Long was surprised to see several teachers comparable to his master there and there were also many people with cloudlink symbol on them. From their attire,they look like disciples of Cloudlink Sect.
Under the leadership of Ling Yun, all eight masters took their respective seats. “I have met master’s elder brother,they both are fellow apprentices.”
Ling Xiu said with a smile “Fellow brothers no need to be overly courteous.” Ling Xiuzi could not be considered handsome,but in his forehead one could see a strong heroic spirit,his fair skin was surrounded by sparkling beads of light,it was obvious that he had reached a higher realm.
Ling Wise smiled and said “Later, everybody must change the way they address you, since senior apprentice brother has managed to reach the peak of the Peak Ascension Stage. Upon passing the test by Grandmaster you are now already a formal third generation disciple of my sect,and have earned the title of Daoist Xiu. You also now personally own the Stormy Peak, every disciple here bids you farewell.
Listening to Ling Wise’s words,everyone immediately became excited. From their own generation of disciples,someone was finally promoted to the third generation of disciples.They all bowed at the same time and said ” Congratulations Junior-Master.”
Ling Xiu smiled and said “Do not call me Junior-master,i can’t handle that! We all are brothers, it is really awkward.” As his vision fell on Hai Long he said with a smile “I actually heard two disciple’s speaking that last year we received one disciple instead of five. That was you?”
Disappointed by his imaginations not matching with reality,Hai Long nodded and said “You are now a Grandmaster with the two other Masters, now Grandmaster has already become my master’s Junior-Master.”
Ling Xiu smiled and said “You have come here for one year, but it is still this master’s first time seeing you. Last time junior apprentice brother gave you one Yuan-cultivating pill, so I also cannot be stingy. Here, take this.” After saying this two fingers of his right hand pointed at his back and from there flew out a sword which was covered in blue light. The sword along with its sheath i hovered in front of Hai Long as Dao Xiu explained “This is my seven construct double-edged sword! Now that i have ascended to the peak of Peak Ascension realm, it is about time i refine a new weapon. Therefore, I give this to you. After you reach the Soaring Cloud stage you can use it.”
Hai Long was curious about the seven xiu sword,looking at the envious stares of various masters around him,he knew that this sword was definitely something quite good. Receiving the Construct Sword, the goodwill he felt towards his new Junior-master increased greatly. He quickly and most respectfully said “Many thanks uncle-master for gifting me this sword.”
Dao Xiu showed a faint smile and said “Fellow junior apprentice brothers, I must now go to receive the Stormy peak. As for my two junior apprentice brothers, you should go and get together with everyone.” After saying this, he started flying without a sword, and his body became only partly visible as he flew past the clouds.
Hai Long’s attention was totally on the seven construct sword in his hands. It’s scabbard was plain and inscribed on it was only a simple pattern. On the hilt of the sword was a cyan coloured gem,which continuously sent out strong spiritual qi. As if an old interest or hobby was suddenly awakened upon seeing the sword, he felt drawn to see the blade, so he gripped the sword hilt, wanting to bring out the sword from it’s sheath.
A big hand appeared on the sword hilt. “Tan Yu, silly boy, this is not the proper way to use the seven construct sword. “ Hai long looked up, only to see 2nd Junior-Master Ling Wise was already in front of him without him knowing.
Ling Wise explained “The cultivation weapons are divided into four ranks named immortal , jewel, spirit and real.This shaft of the seven construct sword is a high grade good of the spirit rank.The cyan coloured gem on it contains a huge amount of divine and spiritual qi, so as long as you carry it by your side, it will bring huge benefits to you by helping you advance in your cultivation. Before you have reached the soaring cloud realm you should not bring it out of its sheath, otherwise,you might injure yourself.
Ling Yu came up beside Hai Long, and said with a smile “Junior-master is really generous! He actually used this seven construct sword himself. It seems like Grandmaster has bestowed something good to him.” Ling Wise looked at Ling Jade and then said “You, boy, should not envy others. In a few days i will find some precious gem,and help you in embedding it in a flying sword,so you can have a spirit rank flying sword.
Ling Jade smiled with happiness. “Then i must thank senior apprentice brother in advance”
Ling Wise said “Good.” “Now everybody go back to practice, dark clouds weather, is the best time for you all to lay your foundation. In this period one cannot slack off in the slightest,okay?”
While hearing the two words ‘Tan Yu’,Hai Long’s heart became uncomfortable. complying with the order, he went back to his own room. For a child there is no bigger happiness than when he gets to inspect new goods or gifts. He felt like he had to study the treasure he received well.
After playing for one hour ,Hai Long embraced the seven xiu sword as he entered the practice stance. This seven construct sword was really a treasure.In fact, the cyan gem was most suitable for the current Hai Long, after practicing for a night, there was obvious increase in his speed of gathering spiritual qi.
The next morning, Hai Long was the same as yesterday, along with Little Smarty’s monkey group, Guai Ren did not arrive, however he left a stone basin for Hai Long. The stone basin was quite large, after checking the ratio with his hand Hai Long understood that it was a bathtub,specially used to take a bath.
There was no difference in the green liquid and water,they were both tasteless, seems just like bulk green well water. Under the repeated urging of Little Smarty, Hai Long soaked in the basin. The temperature of the green liquid was suitable, and soaking in it brought great comfort to Hai Long’s body. While holding the seven construct sword outside the basin,he unknowingly fell asleep.
In his sleep, Hai Long felt as if scalding hot air currents were flowing in his body repeatedly,the places where they flew through became exceptionally comfortable. Hai long did now know how long he slept, only after Little Smarty pulled more than ten hairs on his head was he awakened from his sleep.
Crawling out of the stone basin and shaking off the water drops from his body while holding his coat to cover himself Hai Long felt as if his body had gone through some changes. As for what the changes were, he could not tell.” Little Smarty, do you know what this thing is?” Hai Long asked as he pointed to the now colorless liquid in the stone basin.
Little Smarty scratched his head,as he made a vacant face.
Hai Long said with a smile “I am really silly! Even if you do know about it, it’s impossible for you to tell me, you don’t know how to speak. Oh! It’s noon already, I must quickly go back.You show me the way back,I cannot quite remember the way I came from.”
After making several noises, Little Smarty launched himself forward, taking Hai Long back through the old route.
