After listening to Ling Yunzi, Daoist Daoming’s face colour sunk, You guys are really good! Now you can take matters into your own hands. Only 3 drops of Ninglu Gel is formed every 100 years, and you gave it away so easily. Didn’t you know, this Ninglu Gel can…” After pausing for a moment, Daoist Daoming turned cold and steered towards Ling Yunzi “Not only did you give away the Ninglu Gel of your own accord, you even accepted a gift from him. Ling Yun, immediately return the grade 5 Purple Lingzhi to Uncle-Master Daoyun when you’re back. I used to think very highly of you, never did I expect you to be so greedy, hmph, we’ll talk more when we’re back.
When Hai Long saw Ling Yunzi trembling with fear after getting scolded, he couldn’t help but rebut loudly, “Master Ancestor, why do you have to be so fierce! 4th Junior-Master didn’t do it. I was the one who took the Purple Lingzhi from Junior-Master Ling Muzi. Furthermore, I already used it to save Little Smarty’s life; hence it’s impossible for it to be returned.
A light flashed in Daoist Daoming’s eyes, Hai Long clearly felt an extremely oppressing feeling coming at him from all directions as it suddenly became harder to breathe.
Ling Yunzi got a shock and hurriedly interjected, “Master, don’t listen to Tanyu’s ramblings, it is indeed this disciple’s fault, if you want to punish, please punish this disciple.”
As Daoist Daoming was contradicted by a descendant disciple in front of all the disciples, anger roiled in his chest, but he knew that today was not the day to let it out, and hence dispersed the oppressive energy with an angry “hmph”.
Hai Long heavily breathed in the fresh air on Heaventake Peak, Daoist Daoming’s doings had thoroughly triggered his obstinacy. He took a fierce step forward and shouted angrily, “What did I do wrong, why are you doing this to me. You’re clearly not fit to be my Master-Ancestor.” His words were loud and shrill, adding on the fact that he imbued some power into his voice by accident, his voice deeply penetrated to every corner of the open area atop the peak. The several hundreds of Cloudlink Sect disciples that gathered all stared in astonishment, Hai Long was clearly the first one who dared to berate a senior generation member atop Heaventake Peak.
Daoist Daoming’s pudgy face turned into a reddish-purple color, his slitty eyes emanated strong killing intent, how could he put down his pride, being outrightly bullied by the junior generation in front of so many others? However, just as he was about to lose control and strike out, a gentle voice rang out, “Martial brother Daoming, what was it that caused you to be in such anger! Whatever the case, it isn’t wise to lose control on Heaventake Peak’s training ground.”
Daoist Daoming turned back, and saw Daoist Daoyun, he coldly snorted, “My Cloudstroke Peak’s business doesn’t need your interference.”
Daoist Daoyun seemingly struck upon an iron nail but wasn’t angry, he floated down beside Hai Long and gently laughed “I heard the whole verbal exchange earlier, although this situation arose because I borrowed those 3 drops of Ninglu Gel, naturally it is my business to interfere. Martial Brother, you’ve already cultivated for 500 years, how can your temper still be so exuberant? He’s the only disciple of the 5th generation, we as elders should show him a bit more favour. The various reverends are about to arrive, how about let’s leave this be? In the future if Martial Brother has any misgivings, do feel free to look for I, Daoyun”.
Daoist Daoming eyes emitted an icy aura: In terms of cultivation, although Daoist Daoyun entered the sect a few decades after me, his cultivation is already one realm above mine, and has entered early Peak Ascension Stage, the two of us have never got along, this time, he must be here to jeer at me so that I won’t be able to dwell in Cloudlink Sect any longer!
Just at this time, Hai Long tugged at Daoist Daoyun’s robe sleeve and said “Grandmaster Uncle Daoyun, why don’t you accept me as your disciple. That fatty Daoming is too fierce, if you don’t accept me, he will beat me to death when we return.
Daoyun jumped in shock, truly no one in the Cloudlink Sect is as audacious as this little brat, he chided “Don’t spout nonsense, towards your Grandmaster, you’re not allowed to disrespe… Ah! Martial Brother, please show mercy!”
*Hong—* A loud noise emerged, Daoming’s 11 disciples all flew out in shock, whereas Daoming and Daoyun respectively back up a step to stabilise their posture. Hai Long who was protected behind Daoyun’s bodily frame, although was not injured, it could be seen that his face was practically pale white with fear. As it seems, after hearing Hai Long’s aggravating words, Daoist Daoming did not care about any taboos whatsoever, and unleashed his wrath towards Hai Long. Fortunately, Daoist Daoyun whose cultivation was higher, noticed early and saved Hai Long’s petty life.
“Who is it that is so bold, to launch attacks on Heaventake Peak’s training ground?” An unsophisticated and feeble voice rang out. Everyone’s heartbeats started picking up pace as though their lives and deaths could be controlled by the voice. An azure light lit up in the distance as the light formed into a gargantuan halo. At the centre of the halo, an old figure shorn with fluttering robes stepped onto a green auspicious cloud that headed over. That old figure’s clothes were simple and his gaze was unfathomably deep yet gentle. Although his demeanour was immortal-like, his presence gave off a refreshing atmosphere. A profound aura shrouded his figure, clearly denoting that his cultivation was unfathomably deep. Seeing this old figure, everyone on the training ground hurriedly bowed and saluted “Junior greets Reverend Boundless”.
As the green cloud dispersed, the halo surrounding Reverend Boundless dispersed, shrunk and levitated behind his back, “At ease. You may all rise. Daoming, Daoyun, what’s the matter? Your masters aren’t here yet?” Reverend Boundless’s cultivation was ranked 6th amongst the 9 Sect Masters of the Cloudlink Sect’s 2nd generation, falling slightly behind Daoist Daoming’s master Reverend Skyrock. He has already cultivated for over 2000 years. As Daoming saw Reverend Boundless, a layer of cold sweat formed on his back as he composed himself and said “Reporting to Reverend, everything is this disciple’s fault, please punish me”.
Reverend Boundless laughed lightly “Cultivation is based upon the heart, your anger is truly excessive. You should know that it is taboo to attack on Heaventake Peak, as it is the closest piece of land from the Immortal World, if you’re not careful and cause Heaven’s Wrath to descend, you might turn this place into a scorched land and become Cloudlink Sect’s criminal, you cannot forget this!”
Hearing Reverend Boundless’s words, Daoming and Daoyun were greatly terrified as they both knelt down. How could they not know what Heaven’s Wrath was? If they encountered the 3 great calamities, the entire Cloudlink Sect won’t be able to defend against it even if they all joined hands. As they realised their mistake, the two started trembling.
Boundless, don’t scare the later generations already. Unless 9 of us older chaps join hands, where would the calamity come from? Just based on their bit of cultivation?” Another mass of green clouds drifted over and landed, an azure halo like Reverend Boundless’s was visible, as the glows vanished, there was another person by Reverend Boundless’s side. This person’s build wasn’t huge, his height was only until Reverend Boundless’s shoulders. In his hands, he clutched a milky white gem which was milky white in colour and perfectly spherical, the gem was about 20cm in diameter and within it, roiling fog could be seen, it looked truly mysterious.
Reverend Boundless smiled widely and said “Martial Brother Skyrock, you stole my stage again. I only wanted to give these disciples a fair warning.” The person that arrived was indeed Daoist Daoming’s Master, Reverend Skyrock.
Reverend Skyrock lightly glanced at Daoist Daoming and said “Daoming, you are getting from bad to worse. Not only is the rate of your cultivation slowing, your nature is also becoming unbearable, at this rate, how are you going to succeed my legacy?”
Daoist Daoming’s heart secretly rejoiced when Reverend Skyrock appeared, with his master here, he started to calm down and become more stable. After hearing his master’s warning, he hurriedly complied and nodded, seemingly becoming a yes-man.
“Puchi~” A gente laughter penetrated the overly tense atmosphere atop the Heaventake Peak training ground, the source of this laughter was Hai Long. Reverend Skyrock wrinkled his brows slightly, and Reverend Boundless looked at the lowest ranked disciple of the late generation with a curious gaze. The fog within Reverend Skyrock’s precious gem started to roil as he faintly questioned, “What are you laughing at?”
Hai Long could be seen as a newborn calf that wasn’t scared of a tiger, he ignored the anxious looks of all his masters and said “Of course it’s hilarious. Towards me, Grandmaster is a flaring tiger, but the moment he saw the two martial ancestors, he was as gentle as a kitten, he’s the model example of someone who takes advantage of the weak.”
The colour on Reverend Skyrock’s face sunk, the kneeling Daoist Daoming emanated a fierce and dangerous aura, Reverend Boundless said “En, you’re truly an interesting child. However you cannot treat your seniors with such lack of manners.” Hai Long scratched his head and replied “Martial Ancestor, I am not being rude! Respect towards the seniors have to be felt in the heart, what’s the point of it being superficial? It’s not that I don’t respect you all, I’m just verbalising my feelings. Could it be that you do not like hearing genuine words?”
Reverend Boundless stared blankly, never did he expect that after living for 200 years, he would be reprimanded by a child slightly over 10 years of age, leaving him with nothing to refute.
