“So how is it?” Zhang Ming He immediately asked, the imagery cost him a huge amount of money to be bought from other big powers. He had watched it himself once and was shocked. But if he was to discuss on analysis, no one was Seventh brother’s opponent.
Seventh Brother’s face was solemn: “Such a strong group of people!”
“Bullshit, I know they are strong!” Zhang Ming He was annoyed by his reply.
Seventh Brother was the one who had the best relationship with everybody. He came from a humble background and got drunk on research. He did not have any interest in power or fights, and walked the path of a scholar. No one would offend these types of people. Regardless of who held authority in the future, Honorable Martial Group’s top elders would definitely have a place for him.
The relationship between all of them when they were young was extremely pure and simple, but after the age of 12, everything changed.
Ye Zhao Ge himself did not have any interest in power, but the Ye family behind him wanted him to grow more powerful. Although the Ye Family had Ye Jiu, who took the stage in his generation, he only became a middle rank elder, but the foundations of Honorable Martial Group was profound, and could not be belittled.
“Jing Hao’s improvements are big, and that’s not weird.” Seventh Brother said in a serious tone: “The clan elders who saw good in him were not without reason, his talent is good, has a strong temperament, and the reason why his ranking is not high is because he chose the route to be self enlightened. That route is extremely dangerous, but upon completion, nothing can be compared to him. Seems like now, he has touched the doorstep and has the qualifications to join us. He was beaten so badly by Sixth Brother because he was just enlightened. But, since he did not die, he will definitely continue to improve.”
“Jing Hao is a good person, but his teacher is lacking a bit.” Zhang Ming He disapproved of Jing Hao’s teacher: “If not for his teacher cowering back from the start, nothing would had happened. What’s Cetus Constellation worth? But now that he retreated, Ye Jiu was sent to handle it. For Jing Hao to do this is really untimely, Ye Jiu definitely will not let this matter rest.”
Seventh Brother disliked fighting, so he had no judgements and replied: “That’s a pity.”
“Nothing worth pitying about!” Zhang Ming He retorted: “If not, he could just wait for Saint Bestowal and then come back. Don’t say Ye Jiu, not even the Ye Family can refute him. Alright alright, continue talking.”
“Those four, Ah Mo Li, Han Bing Ning, Liang Qiu and Sima Xiang Shan.” the Seventh Brother said simply: “Ah Mo Li and Han Bing Ning’s potential are the highest, Liang Qiu and Sima Xiang Shan can reach the clan elders rank.”
Zhang Ming he gasped, he was taken aback, there were many grade differences in the Honorable Martial Groups’ clan elder ranks, but upon entering it, there would be a great difference between them and ordinary martial artists. He had recently joined the family matters tasking, and he was very clear: for a family to attain a seat in the Group, other than needing supporters from the top, they also needed supporters in the bottom.
Just like the root system of a tree.
In the family, for the young disciples who have the potential to join in the clan elder ranks, all received great care and nurture. And for Ah Mo Li and Han Bing Ning’s potential to be even higher than that, that meant that they were minimally middle rank elders, and to any family, that was already considered a core power.
But of course, that was only potential. There will always be indefinite changes to potential.
Such a pity, if only he could use them.
“The more important targets, are Ling Xu, Crane and Tang Tian.” Seventh Brother’s expression became more serious, but his eyes had a glint of light.
Zhang Ming He immediately regained his senses: “They three of them should be powerful, right?”
“Extremely powerful!” Seventh Brother could not help but compliment: “Their talents are not inferior to ours.”
“Are you sure?” Zhang Ming He was doubtful: “If you said Tang Tian, I would believe, but Ling Xu and Crane as well?”
Seventh Brother rubbed his nose: “Ling Xu’s spear techniques look like the ancient Aries Constellation spear techniques. He might be the descendant of the Silver Frost Mounts.”
Zhang Ming He was stunned, then laughed: “Then there is some fun, the Silver Frost Mounts are the mortal enemies of Aries Constellation now. Will there be a fight for the Aries Inheritance? Should we go pass the information to Aries Constellation, or not? The one in charge of that is the Qi Family, and we cannot make it so convenient for Qi Shan!”
Seventh Brother Man Yuan ignored Zhang Man He as though he did not hear anything. Qi Shan was their 3rd brother.
“To be able to receive the Silver Frost Mount legacy, he definitely isn’t ordinary.” Zhang Man He muttered to himself. He had already placed Ling Xu in the same standard as himself in his heart.
Regardless whether it was legacy or treasure, the higher grade it was, the higher the requirement needed by the martial artist. Talent, temperament, all cannot be lacked.
The history of Aries Constellation was considered the history of Silver Frost Mounts. The glory of Aries Constellation was the glory of Silver Frost Mount. The Aries Spear of Stars, being the champion under the stars, was definitely not just a brag.
If Ling Xu could truly unleash the Aries Spear of Stars to it’s maximum, he would definitely have the qualifications to rise to the generation’s strongest martial artists ranks.
The legacies of the 12 Ecliptic Planes were not just some average trash.
Of course, if Ling Xu’s talent and temperament was insufficient, then even if he died, no one would bother.
“Crane is the Empress’ nephew.” Seventh Brother sighed: “His talent is also extremely outstanding, and he should be training in the lost [Heavenly Crane Sword Principle] of the Crane Sect.”
“Crane Sect?” Zhang Ming He snorted disdainfully: “That low class place is only so so. If he goes back to Sagittarius Constellation, then he would be considered a formidable enemy.”
Seventh Brother glanced at him, and said: “The Crane Sect is not as weak as you think. In the scholar room, row 122, the 9th cupboard at the 7th row, you can find a book of notes. Inside it are notes written by an elder of Honorable Martial Group, Tian Xia, about 800 years ago, it had a mention of him and Crane Spiritual Master fighting.”
“Tian Xia?” Zhang Ming He’s bright and handsome face cringed slightly, and exposed a thinking look: “Seems familiar.”
Through the history of Honorable Martial Group, they had countless clan elders, and he naturally could not remember them all.
“Elder Tian Xia was an expert in Big Yang Palm, and was the 9th elder of the Second Rank Elders.” Seventh Brother knew all of this knowledge at the palm of his hands: “He stepped into the saint domain at age 62.”
“Saint Domain!” Zhang Ming He’s face exposed a serious look.
In any generation, anyone who stepped into the saint domain were peak experts. Saint Bestowal was the dream of all these people, but the route to it was extremely dangerous. All of them might be brilliant, brimming with talent, or had resources that others could not have, but the number of people who successfully attained the saint domain was very few. No one could be certain that they could eventually be bestowed the saint rank.
Any one of the experts in the saint domain all deserved to be respected and revered.
“In his entire life, he had crossed hands with Crane Spiritual Master three times, and did not win one.”
Zhang Ming He did not have any reply, such a strong record was extremely scary. Zhang Ming He corrected his attitude, he had truly looked down on Crane Sect. Anyone who could develop and establish their own constellation was an expert. Even the Southern Sky 42 Constellations, which were considered run down places in their eyes. The pioneers of the constellations were all experts in their eras.
Although Zhang Ming He did not know as much as Seventh Brother in terms of the history of the Martial Group, but he knew that the Martial Group was not always strong, and many a time the Martial Group had declined and were weak in the course of history. Even their arch enemy Onyx Soul was almost uprooted many times in history.
Heroes have their own stories to tell.
“Look carefully at the wounds of Sixth Brother Ye. The sword wound Crane inflicted did not manage to heal in the end.” Seventh Brother’s round face and small eyes lit up, as though he found something interesting: “I have researched Sixth Brother Ye’s blood meridians, and have always wanted to try to leave a scar on his body, and it took me great difficulty to do so. Sixth Brother Ye’s body is extremely durable, I have tried over 200 ways, and to leave behind wounds that are unable to heal, there are only 3 ways.”
“That sounds very powerful.” Zhang Ming He was drooling: “No wonder Jing Hao’s ancestors did not say anything. If this group continues to grow, they would definitely be something. Jing Hao might not be able to fight them.”
He dispelled the thoughts to rope them in.
Ah Mo Li and the other 3 were fine, but Ling Xu and Crane, one had top grade legacies, another was a disciple of a famous person and had talent and intellect. The two of them would definitely not be able to be roped in by him. He also did not dare, Ling Xu was trouble, roping him in meant that they would become arch enemies with Aries Constellation. Rope Crane in? The Empress would directly slap his face.
Suddenly, he was extremely curious about Tang Tian. With his current position, he might not have the qualifications to pull those two in, but who was Tang Tian to be able to be their leader?
Ling Xu had an explosive temper, Crane was much better, but which aristocratic family disciple would not be arrogant? Yet the two of them actually listen to Tang Tian.
“Then what about Tang Tian?” Zhang Ming He could not stop asking about Tang Tian.
Seventh Brother inhaled a deep breath: “Crane and Ling Xu, although they both have a lot of potential, their strength in the Martial Group is not considered strong. Ling Xu places a lot of importance on his unorthodox methods, obviously he trained by fumbling about by himself. Crane, is more obvious, although there is no resemblance of Qi to the Sagittarius Constellation, he is one with the martial techniques of Crane Sect. From what I know, the martial techniques of Crane Sect are in parts, and in a serious case, seems like Crane just recently found the authentic techniques of the Crane Sect. Both of them do not have any teacher guiding them, and lack the resources, although they rely on their talent and their strengths are good, compared to us, they are still lacking. Don’t even talk about Sixth Brother Ye being able to completely destroy them, if they were in the courtyard of the Martial Group, they would be ranked around 200.”
“But, Tang Tian is different from them.”
These words from Seventh Brother immediately took all of Zhang Ming He’s attention.
“Tang Tian’s strength is very powerful, and if placed in our courtyard, he would be ranked around 50. That was why he was able to continuously injure Sixth brother Ye, and under severe exhaustion, be able to beat him down. But it’s hard to imagine, someone without sufficient resources, lacking the guidance of a teacher, would be able to reach such a standard at that age.”
Zhang Ming He was stunned: “Rank 50? Are you sure?”
Honorable Martial Group and Onyx Soul had a long history, and with regards to the grooming and nurturing of youths, they had found an extremely favorable method. It was exactly them benefiting from their style of grooming their youths, that Honorable Martial Group was able to become as strong as where they were currently.
Robust resources, guidance from famous masters, methods for competitions, any of the top 100 students of Honorable Martial Group, if placed in any constellation, would be the number one student. Every single one of them were all recognized anywhere.
Seventh Brother replied very definitely, a strange dazzling light aura shone in his eyes.
“But, the true reason that caused me to be so surprised, is that Tang Tian is the martial artist with the most complex fighting prowess and the most complicated constitution I have ever seen!”
