Unparalleled After Ten Consecutive Draws - Chapter 194
Chu Kuangren had accepted the position of the Black Heaven Sect Leader.
Greetings and well wishes were received from everyone.
At that moment, a golden horse-drawn carriage, which radiated with a brilliant light and emanated bursts of unusual Daoist Rhyme, was flying in the distant sky.
The carriage was escorted by a group of armored guards who had ferocious energies emanating from their bodies as if they had been through the hells of war.
Everyone was surprised when they looked toward the skies.
“The Six Stallion Carriage. This is a vehicle only available for use by the members of the Royal Azure Dynasty. Which noble person or royal member would this be?”
“Since Gu Changge is already here, who else would it be?”
Even Gu Changge himself was a little surprised.
However, he had already identified the carriage and knew who it was.
As the curtain door of the carriage opened, a glamorous woman in a gorgeous phoenix robe walked out. It was Princess Linglong.
“It’s normal for her to attend Chu Kuangren’s Inauguration Ceremony. He is her royal fiancé after all.” The crowd discussed.
Princess Linglong came out of the carriage and looked towards Chu Kuangren on stage with a gentle smile. “My royal fiancé, I apologize for the late arrival. I hope you don’t mind.”
“It’s alright, my Princess.”
“Oh my, your outfit for today is quite… Good-looking.”
After Princess Linglong checked Chu Kuangren out, she could not help but praise him with her admired-filled eyes.
“Your praise is undeserved, my Princess.”
When was he ever not good-looking?
“I’ve come today with a decree from my father.”
Princess Linglong then took out an imperial edict which emanated the domineering poise of an Honorable. Upon noticing this, the people from the Royal Azure Dynasty quickly knelt.
Meanwhile, Chu Kuangren stood unmoved as he looked at Princess Linglong and smiled. “There’s no need for me to kneel, right, my Princess?”
“Of course not.”
He did not even have to kneel before the Royal Azure Dynasty King before this. So now that he was the Black Heaven Sect Leader and his current position was equal to the Royal Azure Dynasty King, there was never a need for kneeling.
“By the order of the heavens, the Royal Princess’s fiancé, Chu Kuangren not only possesses a Heavenly form but also an exceptional level of skill and political integrity. Because of this, I have decided to specially appoint the Royal Princess’s fiancé as the Ruler Matrimonial!”
Princess Linglong opened the imperial edict and read it aloud.
Those words shocked everyone greatly.
It was especially so for the Royal Azure Dynasty’s people, who were all dumbfounded.
That title was equivalent to the status of a country’s ruler!
Since ancient times, only less than a handful of people had received that title, and now, it belonged to Chu Kuangren!
“My Royal Fiancé, please accept this decree.”
Princess Linglong walked forward and handed the imperial edict to Chu Kuangren.
“Thank you very much, my King.”
Chu Kuangren received the imperial edict without any fuss.
“You’re still addressing him as ‘King’?” Princess Linglong pouted with slight resentment.
“If so, help me pass my thanks to father then.”
Chu Kuangren replied as he rubbed his nose.
Only then did Princess Linglong smile delightfully. Even if the blossoming of a hundred flowers was hard to compare with that smile of hers.
Many male cultivators could not help but sigh at that sight.
“Chu Kuangren is no doubt a winner in life now.”
“He’s too annoying.”
“Cultivators should not be greedy when it comes to wealth, women, techniques, and land. However, Chu Kuangren himself already possesses all of them. How can it not piss anyone off?”
At that moment, a woman walked out of the crowd.
She was dressed in white and had a calm smile on her face that was warm like a spring breeze. Everyone looked at her surprisingly.
She was the School of White Lotus’s Maiden Sage.
“Besides coming to the Black Heaven Sect to witness the Inauguration Ceremony, the School of White Lotus has something to inform you too, Bachelor Sage.” The White Lotus’s Maiden Sage chuckled.
“What’s the matter?”
The White Lotus’s Maiden Sage then took out a white ancient amulet which was engraved with a white lotus pattern. Mysterious bursts of Daoist Rhyme emanated from it too.
“According to the decree of the White Lotus Leader, from today onwards, the Bachelor Sage is officially appointed as the School of White Lotus’s Supreme Elder. You will be treated as equal to the White Lotus Leader.”
“Bachelor Sage, no, Supreme Elder, please accept this decree.”
The witnessing crowd was dumbfounded.
‘As if the title of Ruler Matrimonial is not enough, now comes the title of Supreme Elder?’
‘F*ck me, what the hell is going on here!’
Chu Kuangren was slightly surprised as well. However, he still accepted the ancient amulet after a short ponder. “Please do thank the White Lotus Leader for me.”
“You’re most welcome, Supreme Elder.” The White Lotus’s Maiden Sage chuckled.
The people from the other orthodoxies already had a rough guess from witnessing that scene.
“Since Chu Kuangren is going to take on the title of the Black Heaven Sect Leader now, if he’s still the White Lotus’s Bachelor Sage and the Royal Azure Princess’s fiancé, it will no doubt mean that the Black Heaven Sect is lower in status compared to the Royal Azure Dynasty and the School of White Lotus.”
“You’re right. That must be why both the Royal Azure Dynasty and School of White Lotus decided to promote Chu Kuangren’s position and status within their orthodoxies. Besides, they’re also taking the chance to strengthen their alliance with the Black Heaven Sect and even deepen their relationship with Chu Kuangren as well.”
“I see, so that’s the case.”
After some thinking, many had figured out the meaning and motive behind the two orthodoxies’ decisions.
Now that Chu Kuangren was the Black Heaven Sect Leader, if they were to let a dignified Sect Leader be a Bachelor Sage or a Royal Fiancé for another orthodoxy, how would the Black Heaven Sect possibly be happy and satisfied about this?
Did that not mean that they had to bow their heads to the two orthodoxies?
That was why those two orthodoxies decided to promote Chu Kuangren’s status to Ruler Matrimonial and Supreme Elder, to which the titles were on equal standing with the Royal Azure Dynasty King and the White Lotus Leader.
Despite understanding the intent behind it, everyone still felt that it was still quite unimaginable.
After all, accepting three titles — Sect Leader, Ruler Matrimonial, and Supreme Elder — within one day was quite a shocking thing for anyone.
“Today is not only Black Heaven Sect’s Inauguration Ceremony, but it’s also the day where the three sage orthodoxies can openly announce their alliance to the world as well.”
“I agree. With Chu Kuangren around, these three sage orthodoxies will no doubt be closely linked with each other. If one of them prospers or declines, then the same thing will happen to the other two as well.”
“What a guy this Chu Kuangren is.”
Everyone was amazed by him.
Just then, an overbearing Sword-based Daoist Rhyme suddenly erupted outside the Black Heaven Sect’s mountain entrance, sending shockwaves like a violent wind sweeping in all directions.
Having felt that surge of sword-based Daoist Rhyme, everyone looked towards the Black Heaven Sect’s mountain entrance.
A straight-browed middle-aged man clad in a green robe was standing there with both his hands crossed. The Sword-based Daoist Rhyme no doubt came from that person.
“The name’s Murong Feng, I’m here to duel with the first rank of the Hundred Sword Spectrum, Chu Kuangren! Chu Kuangren, I request that you show yourself right now!”
The middle-aged man’s thunderous roar resounded through the whole Black Heaven Sect.
Everyone who came to attend the ceremony had a look of surprise on their faces.
Amongst the crowd, Daoist Murong Xuan’s face became paler.
“It’s him, the second rank of the Hundred Sword Spectrum, the Black Warrior Domain’s Murong Feng.”
“The famed One Sword, One Mountain, and Two Clans. This guy Murong Feng is the one in the Murong clan who’s deemed as the number one swordsman in the world below the level of a Sage!”
“Word says that even the head of the Murong clan was no match for him. If it were not for his disinterest in the clan’s position, he would’ve no doubt be the head of the Murong clan by now.”
“I can’t believe that guy actually came to challenge Chu Kuangren. He even picked such a special occasion to do so as well. Tsk, if Chu Kuangren is defeated in the hands of that person, then his honor and prestige as the Sect Leader will greatly drop.”
Everyone looked at Chu Kuangren, curious as to what he was going to do next.
“Honorable Teacher, did we send an invite to the Murong clan?” Chu Kuangen looked at Honorable Xuan Qi and asked.
Honorable Xuan Qi shook his head and said, “The Murong clan is located in the Black Warrior Domain which is quite a far distance away from here, hence I didn’t even bother to send one.”
Moreover, the relationship between the famed One Sword, One Mountain, and Two Clans were never good in the first place. If they were to be invited to attend the ceremony, would that not increase their vexation and make them more annoyed instead?
“Since they’re not invited, I shall send them away now.”
Chu Kuangren replied with a gentle smile.
His figure then turned into a flash of light, disappearing on the spot. Only a handful of people on the scene could truly capture his movements.
“What incredible speed!”
Just when the crowd could react in shock, Chu Kuangren had already arrived at the mountain gate and he stood before the person who ranked second in the Hundred Sword Spectrum.
The moment they met, their Sword-based Daoist Rhymes immediately collided with each other.
