“There are about ten thousand people belonging to the entire Mount Dazzling Gold. According to the logic that a large squadron is composed of a thousand people, this Huang Jing being a large squadron captain ought to make him classified as a high status person on Mount Dazzling Gold.” Thought Qin Yu in his heart.
Qin Yu didn’t know that in the armies of Mount Dazzling Gold, the highest position was that of the ‘Large Squadron Captain.’
As for this Legion Commander of Yuchi City, he was merely a Low Level Heavenly Deity and couldn’t hope to compare to a Large Squadron Captain of Mount Dazzling Gold.
“Hand me the keys.” Huang Jing smiled as he looked at the yellow clothed woman.
The yellow clothed woman immediately flipped her hand and took out thirteen keys. “Lord Huang Jing, these are the keys for the thirteen houses in the North City District.” This yellow clothed woman’s attitude was incomparably respectful.
With a wave of his hand, Huang Jing received the thirteen keys.
“Senior Huang Jing.” That Legion Commander Liu was beaming from ear to ear. “Senior Huang Jing, I don’t know how many cultivators of the Mount Dazzling Army senior have brought with you this time but will those thirteen houses of the North City District be enough for you?”
Huang Jing smiled mildly. “It’s good enough if I have a couple of them share a house.”
“How could we possibly allow you to crowd several into a single …”
“You don’t have to speak anymore.” Huang Jing interrupted Legion Commander Liu’s speech. “Return and tell Uncle Yuchi that I have arrived. Also, tell him that during the time that I am in the Yuchi City, do not allow others to come disturb me.”
“Yes.” Legion Commander Liu said respectfully.
Huang Jing nodded. With a movement of his foot, he disappeared from the sight of everyone present.
On the first floor lounge of the Property Selling Bureau. The group of people were all looking at the location where Huang Jing previously stood before disappearing. They remained silent for a long time.
“That man, I reckon that even if I were to use my Divine Spear Waning Snow, I would still not have the slightest chance of victory over him.” Qin Yu was absolutely certain. “For this man to be able to become a Large Squadron Captain of Mount Dazzling Gold, is he a Mid Level Heavenly Deity or a High Level Heavenly Deity?”
Hou Fei and Hei Yu had also been silent for quite some time.
Legion Commander Liu frowned. He then stopped mentioning the thing about purchasing a house and rapidly left the Property Selling Bureau.
“Mount Dazzling Gold.” Xing Yuan was still remembering these words. “If only one day I can become a cultivator of Mount Dazzling Gold!” Xing Yuan remembered the disdain that ‘Liu Qiyan’ had for him as well as the grandeur of that ‘Huang Jing’ from earlier.
Xing Yuan glanced at Zi Yun beside him. His conviction for training hard became even more resolute.
Soon after, Xing Yuan and Zi Yun had picked a house on the South City District. This house was a bit cheaper. It required only a total of one million nine hundred and eighty thousand Low Quality Divine Spiritual Stones. After finishing purchasing the house and obtaining the key, Qin Yu and them then proceeded to leave.
Nine Crane Restaurant.
The Nine Crane Restaurant was a very well known restaurant in Yuchi City. As Xing Yuan and Zi Yun had purchased a house, they decided to go to the Nine Crane Restaurant and enjoy themselves. As for Qin Yu and his brothers, they naturally also followed them into the restaurant.
Qin Yu and his brothers, Xing Yuan and Zi Yun’s family numbered a total of seven people. The seven of them just happened to fill a table.
“Let’s enjoy ourselves this time around.” Zi Yun frowned her nose and ruthlessly ordered a great deal of dishes. The dishes of the Nine Crane Restaurant were all incomparably tasty and elegant. A lot of their dishes originated from many different cosmic spaces. Furthermore, the ingredients they used for the dishes were also extremely peculiar.
In a single breath, Zi Yun ordered sixteen dishes. They cost over eight hundred Low Quality Divine Spiritual Stones.
“Your mother and I have only been here once when the two of us married. Never had we anticipated for so many years to have passed in a blink of an eye. And now, Little Yun you are also going to settle down and get married.” Said Zi Futian while smiling.
Zi Yun smiled happily. She even glanced at Xing Yuan.
Xing Yuan was also smiling and laughing.
“Brother Xing Yuan, soon, I most likely will be leaving the Sealfeel Village and also won’t be in Yuchi City. Today, I shall accompany you and drink to our fullest.” Said Qin Yu while smiling.
“You’re leaving?’ Xing Yuan said in shock.
Hou Fei laughed and said. “In the future, when we have time, we will come back and visit you. Haha… Mn?” Right when Hou Fei was halfway through his sentence, his gaze shifted towards the stairs. Qin Yu and them also followed Hou Fei’s gaze and looked to the stairs.
They heard a series of footsteps. A group of people walked up from the stairs. The person leading them was precisely Huang Jing.
The footsteps continued. One after another, a total of over thirty people had walked in.
“They are all cultivators of Mount Dazzling Gold.” Qin Yu had determined that in his heart. These thirty plus people, each and every one of them were Heavenly Deity level experts. Because of the arrival of this group of people, the entire restaurant had instantly grown silent. Even if they did not deliberately reveal their strength, but for thirty plus Heavenly Deities to arrive at the same time, that sort of aura had already stunned the majority of the people in the restaurant.
“Large Squadron Captain, please sit here.” Quickly, those Heavenly Deities had seated themselves on five tables. As for the white clothed youngster Huang Jing, he saw Qin Yu and was unable to refrain his eyes from shining.
“Mn, what a coincidence.” The white clothed youngster Huang Jing smiled to Qin Yu and said.
The thirty plus Mount Dazzling Gold’s cultivators all looked to Qin Yu.
“Truly a coincidence.” Qin Yu lightly nodded.
The white clothed youngster Huang Jing said no more. He directly sat down on his own seat. These five tables of people had also ordered some dishes. For this group of people to arrive, they instead caused Xing Yuan, Zi Yun and them to be uncomfortable eating.
“Large Squadron Captain, how long are we staying this time around? I think it’s better for us to stay here for a shorter period of time so that we can return back earlier.” As they were eating, a cultivator of the Mount Dazzling Gold suggested.
“Shorter? While I might be willing to do that, that younger brother of mine might not be willing.” Said Huang Jing with a light smile.
Huang Jing appeared to be a very gentle and quiet youngster. Even his smile expression appeared like that of a woman’s. However, none of those thirty plus cultivators of the Mount Dazzling Gold dared to act impudent in front of him.
“Little young master is too powerful. If we were to go, we’ll only be trampled upon. Large Squadron Captain, please just accompany little young master for us. After all, he is no match against you.” Said a female cultivator of the Mount Dazzling Gold.
Huang Jing shook his head and said. “My younger brother refuses to fight with me. Otherwise, why would I bring you all over?”
“But, the little young master…”
“Fine. This time I will try my best to reduce the time. You bunch.” Huang Jing shook his head helplessly.
“You all, quiet down!”
A cold and clear voice had suddenly resounded through the entire restaurant. Everyone in the restaurant had suddenly stopped talking. Huang Jing and the thirty plus people with him have all looked to the location where the voice sounded from.
“Truly someone with enough courage.” Hou Fei, Hei Yu and them also looked to the originator of the voice in excitement.
The person who spoke was a gray clothed man who sat on the corner of the restaurant. This gray clothed man had a short beard and appeared to be a bit dispirited. Just by looking at this gray clothed man, one would involuntary feel a sense of ‘sadness.’
“Is he an expert?” Qin Yu was also unable to ascertain it.
“Hey, who are you? Did our conversation hinder you?” A robust cultivator of the Mount Dazzling Gold stood up. He shouted at that man in a loud voice.
“Everyone, let’s continue our chat. Don’t bother with that lunatic.” That robust man sat back down. He did not care about that gray clothed man at all.
Immediately after, those thirty plus cultivators continued their conversation. As the cultivators of the Mount Dazzling Gold, there were not many people in the Eastern Region of the Divine Realm that would dare to stop them from talking. At the very least, they have all seen those few big shots before.
Huang Jing however frowned and glanced at that gray clothed man a couple times.
“Quiet down!” That gray clothed man raised his head and said in a cold voice. “This is a restaurant, not your Mount Dazzling Gold. You all are customers and other people are also customers. Do not be too overly rude.”
The thirty plus cultivators of the Mount Dazzling Gold had all grown angry.
However, Huang Jing instead stood up. “You knew that we are from the Mount Dazzling Gold? Looking at your strength, you’re a Mid Level Heavenly Deity. However, you’re not from the Mount Dazzling Gold; which one of the sixty four cities are you from?”
That gray clothed man continued to drink his wine. He had completely ignored Huang Jing.
Qin Yu continued to watch the scene as it unfolded before him.
“Big brother.” Hou Fei’s voice sounded in Qin Yu’s mind. Qin Yu looked to Hou Fei. Hou Fei’s complexion was a bit pale. He said via voice transmission. “Big brother, I kept feeling that gray clothed man is looking at me.”
Qin Yu turned around to look at that gray clothed man. The gray clothed man was currently drinking.
“But he’s not looking at you.” Qin Yu frowned.
Hou Fei’s complexion turned even more pale. “No, I am able to sense that he’s looking at me. Furthermore, he has been oppressing me with his aura.” As Hou Fei said that, beads of sweat rolled down his forehead.
Qin Yu was unable to sense any sort of aura in the surrounding. He was unable to refrain himself from being confused and looking at Hou Fei and then that gray clothed man.
Huang Jing stood and looked at that gray clothed man. He frowned. As for those thirty plus cultivators of the Mount Dazzling Gold, they were quietly staring at Huang Jing and awaiting his orders. Because of this, the entire restaurant had grown silent.
“Huff, the wine’s pretty good.” The gray clothed man raised his head up as he finished drinking his wine. He then stood up. His gaze was cast toward Huang Jing and them. He sighed and then shook his head.
“Motherfucker, a Mid Level Heavenly Deity dares to be this arrogant!” That loud voiced man shouted. He directly rushed toward the gray clothed man. Huang Jing did not prevent his subordinate. That was because he too felt a burst of strangeness.
Qin Yu and them promptly retreated themselves to the corner.
“Zzk zzk~~~” With this loud voice man’s body as the center, countless golden rays of light shot out. Like threads, the golden rays of light formed an enormous cocoon that covered this gray clothed man.
Qin Yu and them were simply unable to see what was occurring within the golden cocoon.
The golden cocoon suddenly shattered. That loud voiced man spurted a mouthful of blood. He flew backwards to where he previously stood. As for the gray clothed man, he continued to stand there. It was as if he had never attacked at all.
“Little girl, did you know that I hate people being noisy the most?” The gray clothed man’s gaze was cast toward Huang Jing.
“Little girl?” Qin Yu also looked to Huang Jing in shock.
Although Huang Jing had appeared to be gentle and quiet, his voice still sounded like that of a man’s.
“You…” Huang Jing eye’s were wide open and displayed a face filled with shock and disbelief.
“I have also came here today because of an important matter. Originally, my mood was pretty good. However, I am unable to even drink in peace. Thus, I believe that… I shall give you all a punishment.” The gray clothed man slightly smiled.
A buzzing noise of air vibration was heard.
Regardless of whether it was Huang Jing, the loud voiced man or the rest of Mount Dazzling Gold’s cultivators, all of them were standing there motionlessly. It was as if they were frozen. That loud voiced man still had his mouth open. However, no matter what, he was unable to close his mouth.
All thirty plus cultivators of the Mount Dazzling Gold were in shock.
Huang Jing, a genius of the Mount Dazzling Gold, possessed strength at the level of High Level Heavenly Deity. A super expert like Huang Jing, against the gray clothed man, was actually unable to resist at all.
A sound like that of glass shattered sounded. Black space cracks actually appeared in the space surrounding Huang Jing. Dazzling golden light was revolving around Huang Jing’s entire body.
The amount of black space cracks became even more and more numerous. At the same time, the width of the space cracks became wider and wider.
“Little girl, you possess some strength and some perseverance.” The gray clothed man slightly nodded. “However, you should stop resisting.”
Right after the gray clothed man said those words, all of the space cracks had disappeared. Huang Jing resumed the state of immobility like that of earlier. Everything was done in vain. Huang Jing looked to the gray clothed man with a gaze asking for forgiveness.
Clearly, Huang Jing also found out that they had encountered a man above them.
“Mn, my mood today is pretty good. I’ll forgive you all.” The gray clothed man slightly laughed. Immediately, Huang Jing and the other thirty plus people suddenly jolted. They had all regained their mobility. However, they all looked to the gray clothed man with gazes filled with shock and horror.
“This time around, it is this junior’s fault for being disrespectful. Thank you senior for your generosity. Let’s go!”
Huang Jing’s voice had actually turned very crisp and mellow. It was clearly that of a woman’s.
Those thirty plus people didn’t dare to speak rubbish at all. They immediately followed Huang Jing and promptly left the restaurant. And at this moment, in the restaurant, other than Qin Yu and his brothers, all of the rest of the people had disappeared. Even Xing Yuan, Zi Yun and the rest had fled downstairs.
Qin Yu felt extremely helpless in his heart.
“Why is this gray clothed man blocking us?” It wasn’t that Qin Yu and his brothers didn’t want to flee.
At the moment when they saw that the gray clothed man managed to stop Huang Jing and them in an instant, Qin Yu and them have immediately felt that the situation had turned bad. All of the people started running downstairs. Zi Yun and them managed to flee downstairs. However, no matter how Qin Yu and his brothers tried, they were unable to flee downstairs. It was as if something was blocking them.
“You three little guys don’t need to worry.” The gray clothed man looked to Qin Yu and his brothers with a smile on his face. “The reason why I have came today is to find the three of you.”
“What might senior have in mind, finding us three brothers for?” Said Qin Yu with a bow.
“All three of you have came from the Immortal, Devil and Demon Realm, right?” Said the gray clothed man with a smile.
“Precisely.” Qin Yu replied.
The gray clothed man slightly nodded. “Do you all still remember… that there was a sentence left in the Immortal, Devil and Demon Realm’s Monkey and Ape Clan’s Inherited Prohibited Area… ‘anyone that managed to master the Heaven Startling Single Stick Strike at the moment of their ascension to the Divine Realm shall become my disciple.’”
Qin Yu and Hou Fei glanced at each other. They looked to the gray clothed man before them with shocked expression.
“You are, you are that senior that had left behind the Inherited Prohibited Area?” Hou Fei said stammeringly.
“That’s right. Hou Fei, I already known everything that has occurred in the Immortal, Devil and Demon Realm. You are a descendent of my Monkey and Ape Clan. Furthermore, you’ve managed to master the Heaven Startling Single Stick Strike. I naturally would comply with my promise. From today on, you shall become my disciple. Prepare yourself, we shall be leaving right after.” The gray clothed man said indifferently.
Qin Yu and his brother’s were all in a state of confusion.
Becoming a disciple? Furthermore, leaving with this gray clothed man?
“But I already have a master!” Hou Fei said hastily.
“You have a master? How come I don’t know about it? Who is your master?” The gray clothed man said with a frown.
“It’s Uncle Lan, oh, Jiang Lan. My master is called Jiang Lan!” Hou Fei said hurriedly.
