Rebirth of the Supreme Celestial Being - Chapter 610
Edited by Ea
Sword Saint Tianshu laughed. “Isn’t it bullying? These senior martial brothers and younger martial brothers are still in the Profound Realm’s Unified Spirit Stage at the highest, and you were already in Earth Realm’s Small Perfection Stage that year. You don’t need to expend much effort to cross swords with Yan Huanyu. You even threw him down in three moves. Didn’t I have to take the initiative to stop such injustice?”
Sword Saint Yaoguang said with a smile. “Back then, after your competition, the Great Hall Master made a decision to let Huarong enter Sword God Hall, not just as a disciple, but to directly replace him as the Second Hall Master. It was the first time in the history of Myriad Dao Academy.”
“I thought at that time that Esteemed Lan Yue was really a reliable person. He recommended Huarong as a guarantee, and he never let us down.”
After hearing this, Esteemed Yaoguang asked Lin Xuanzhi, “What is the relationship between you and Esteemed Lan Yue? Although he is on good terms with us, he never recommended anyone to us before. I haven’t seen you contact him in these years, so I’m very curious about your relationship.”
Lin Xuanzhi considered his words and said, “I didn’t know him at first, but when I first came to Nine Lands in that year, I had many doubts in my heart. I didn’t know what the future would be like, so I went to Fuyao Sect and went to find the man named Lan Yue. I asked him to give me a divination and a glimpse of my life chart. After reading it, he thought that if I joined the secular world, I would inevitably turn it upside down. Only entering Myriad Dao Academy, can I clean away the dust in my heart and live my life in accordance with the rules.”
It wasn’t necessarily true that Esteemed Lan Yue was worrying about Lin Xuanzhi when he recommended Lin Xuanzhi to Myriad Dao Academy; instead, he was worrying about the whole world.
Although the Yin family had different temperaments, their characters were also different. However, as a prophet family, they always held the lifeline of heaven and naturally had a feeling of “helping the world”.
In fact, Lin Xuanzhi concealed some things. The original words of Esteemed Lan Yue were: “Although I can’t see your future clearly, I can see that your destiny is opposite to that of the current second successor of the Qianyuan Dynasty, and it is grand, even more grand than Yan Tianhen’s. But no one can bear this kind of fate. What’s more, I can see that you have demons in your heart.”
“If you are in the secular world, you will rebel within a hundred years and turn the world into chaos. Therefore, for the sake of the world and for your own good, why don’t you go to Myriad Dao Academy within a hundred years. Myriad Dao Academy is a rare place in the world where there is no evil spirit and demonic aura. Although some disciples there have their own thoughts, they are much cleaner than those outside. It’s a rare pure land for people to study every day. Ordinary people in the Academy would not scheme or plot, so their heart demons would naturally disappear.”
However, this was only for ordinary people.
Lin Xuanzhi’s heart demon had always been just because of one person.
When Yan Tianhen was not in front of him, while he was in Little Penglai, his heart was in the secular world, so he tried his best to build the so-called Reincarnation Palace and solicited talents from all sides. On the surface, he was doing business in the gray area, but in fact, it was a tool specially used to collect information about Yan Tianhen.
He was neither sad nor happy. Nothing could surprise him, yet he was extremely stubborn.
He resisted the urge to see Yan Tianhen. He rarely left the sect, but in the end, his heart demon grew more and more fierce. Finally, he still couldn’t help going to the Southwest Land and “ran into” Yan Tianhen. Fortunately, Yan Tianhen sent himself to his side. There were times when even Esteemed Lan Yue made mistakes.
His heart demon had nothing to do with where he was, but only with Yan Tianhen.
So far, no newer student had won.
However, the assessment was based on the scoring system. As long as the new student’s assessment scores were marked above “B”, they would be considered to have passed. Only a few disciples had fallen below that mark.
The onlookers talked about the competition on the stage, and some of them expressed their feelings and admiration of their senior martial brothers. Soon, the round came to Longyao Lingguang and Xuan Ziyun.
The newer students, who’d been looked down and abused by the older students, felt their hearts flourish. They immediately cheered up and shouted as if they’d been injected with chicken blood below. “Come on, Longyao! Longyao, beat him! Longyao, you are the best!”
Of course, the disciples of Xuan Ziyun’s East Courtyard, both new and old, were cheering for Xuan Ziyun. Xuan Ziyun yawned as soon as he came on stage. His eyes were very hazy, as if he had just woken up.
The disciples of the East Courtyard thought he was rather unreliable.
A senior who had a good relationship with Xuan Ziyun sighed. “Ziyun is just too lazy. If he can be more diligent, I wouldn’t have to worry about him giving up.”
Next to him was a new younger martial brother. When he heard this, he nervously asked, “What? Will he surrender?”
“It’s not like he hasn’t done this kind of thing before.” The senior replied, “Before we had another competition with the North Courtyard, he just fought casually. Later, when he was annoyed by the pestering, he stopped and gave up. This kind of thing has happened more than once, and this time, I don’t know if he will be the same as before.”
The younger martial brothers wiped their cold sweat in succession, and their little hearts plopped up, feeling more and more nervous.
On the stage, Sword Saint Tianshu touched his chin. “Xuan Ziyun’s talent is far above Yan Huanyu, but it’s such a pity that this good seedling is wasted.”
Although Sword Saint Yaoguang was Yan Huanyu’s immediate master, he had to agree with Sword Saint Tianshu’s words and nod his head. “Amazing talent and outstanding genius, but in this world of cultivating immortals, there has never been a lack of various talents. Not everyone can become immortals in the end.”
Sword Saint Tianshu frowned slightly. “He is regarded as an important side branch member of the Xuan clan. I found that every disciple of the Xuan clan who has come to Myriad Dao Academy since Xuan Wushe took power has similar styles, and each one is more decadent than the next. It’s just that boy, Xuan Ziyun is particularly lazy and unmotivated.”
When Lin Xuanzhi heard this, he said faintly, “His talent and mind are the best among his peers of the Xuan family. The East Sovereign seems to be interested in accepting him as an adoptive son and handing over the East Land to him. Xuan Ziyun just doesn’t want to blatantly evade, yet he also doesn’t want to force himself to do things he doesn’t want to do. Therefore, he constantly indulges himself, hoping that the East Sovereign would change his original idea.”
“What nonsense!” Sword Saint Yuheng, who was more serious, exclaimed, “He’s treating his future like a joke!”
“It’s not so easy to be the son of the East Sovereign.” Sword Saint Tianshu smiled and said, “I don’t know what’s the big conflict between the East Sovereign and the prophet family. The prophecy 30 years ago, however, has done terrible harm to the East Land. As long as the East Sovereign dares to give birth to an heir, the Purple Emperor will no longer just make a small move and give a warning.”
Lin Xuanzhi looked at the two people who had started to fight on stage and said, “It’s more than just the East Land. At that time, the whole Nine Lands won’t be able to stay out of it.”
Meanwhile, Sinking Star was a legendary sword that could make stars fall.
The grade had not been identified, so it was uncertain for the time being, but one could guess it was at least a spiritual tool or above. Xuan Ziyun’s sword was called Graceful Beauty, and it was also taken from Hidden Sword Peak.
When he’d taken down Graceful Beauty, Sword Saint Tianshu had just sighed with regret and said, “Loss.”
Up to now, no one knew whether Sword Saint Tianshu’s phrase “loss” was referring to Xuan Ziyun losing out or this Graceful Beauty sword’s loss. In sum, Graceful Beauty was also a peerless sword. The wind rose, and the sword fell.
Graceful Beauty and Sinking Star collided with each other in the air, creating a buzzing sound.
Longyao Lingguang had always been an active person. He took the lead in launching an attack, and then rushed towards Xuan Ziyun by using the move “Hidden Moon”.
Hidden Moon was a move that complemented well with Sinking Star. Most of the time, if you chose a sword or a sword chose you, you would eventually pick one that matched your own sword techniques.
Like sword, like man.
Hidden Moon, as the name suggested, would make the opponent unable to see the direction of the sword. Then, with another move called “Rising Star”, he could lock the opponent’s throat unexpectedly.
In the end, Longyao Lingguang was still a little restless.
After Hidden Moon was activated, Xuan Ziyun’s eyes still didn’t open completely and was calm and collected. He even lowered his sword and was just standing on the platform stupidly while holding his weapon, letting the surrounding figures flash and change.
The emperor was not in a hurry, while the eunuch was in a hurry. The disciples below were almost crying out their voices. “Brother Xuan, move quickly!”
“Don’t give up ahhhh!”
“Give him a beating!”
“I’ve bet all my possessions on you!”
At a speed beyond the reach of ordinary people, Xuan Ziyun quickly thrust out his sword to his left and above him, blocking twice. He unexpectedly stopped the attacks with precision.
Cheers broke out on the scene, and Longyao Lingguang showed an expression of disbelief. Then, he was calm once again.
After all, Xuan Ziyun’s cultivation was a small step higher than his.
He was now at the Profound Realm’s Separated Spirit Stage, Major Attainment, while Xuan Ziyun was at the peak of Profound Realm’s Separated Spirit Stage. It was understandable that he could see through Longyao Lingguang’s tentative probing. It was just that Longyao Lingguang didn’t expect Xuan Ziyun to really take this seriously.
But after thinking about it again, he understood that under the eyes of the public, he always had to be serious at the beginning, otherwise he would be called up by a teacher and dragged off by the ear to get lectured and be brainwashed by him. It would have been more troublesome.
Longyao Lingguang’s brain was like eighteen bends of mountain road. In an instant, it was unknown how many matters he thought about.
Longyao Lingguang quickly retreated and used another move called “Shattering Star” to fight hard and slow. He would provoke on one side and poked on the other, slowing the speed down, which seemed to look like a cat and mouse chase.
This was Xuan Ziyun’s least favorite way to fight.
This move, to put it bluntly, was a test of the other side’s patience. It was so slow that it could drive people crazy.
After receiving a few of these attacks, Xuan Ziyun lifted his eyes and said to Longyao Lingguang, who was still testing the waters slowly, “You know me very well, boy.”
