Unparalleled After Ten Consecutive Draws - Chapter 196
“I got it, Brother.”
The Godly Phoenix brushed against Chu Kuangren’s body and said.
“Alright, stop it, many people are looking even though it was quite comfortable,” Chu Kuangren muttered the last part of his sentence softly.
This Godly Phoenix had soft feathers that had a kind of warmth in it. When it was brushing against him, it felt rather warming, and it was actually quite comfortable.
Seeing how a great divine beast was tamed like a pet in front of Chu Kuangren, the few elders who were watching were so surprised that their eyeballs almost popped out.
“Lead Disciple really is one of a kind, achieving the things that we can’t do so easily. I’m impressed, really impressed,” one of the Elders said.
“Still calling him Lead Disciple?”
“Cough, Sect Leader, I mean Sect Leader. I didn’t manage to change accordingly.”
“Oh right, Kuangren, does this divine beast have a name?”
Just then, Elder Ruyan asked curiously.
Chu Kuangren shook his head. “I still haven’t given it a name.”
“Have you thought of a name yet?”
“Yes.” Chu Kuangren caressed the Godly Phoenix’s neck and said, “Since she’s fully red, let’s just call her Lil Red.”
“How can you be so casual about this!”
Elder Ruyan, Honorable Xuan Qi, and the rest were stunned to no words.
It was a divine beast that they were dealing with here!
To name it Lil Red?
If word went out, this would be so embarrassing!
“I think it’s not bad. Lil Red, Lil Red, it sounds quite good. It also sounds very easy to raise.” Chu Kuangren laughed.
“You think you’re raising a pet cat or a dog?”
Honorable Xuan Qi rolled his eyes and said.
He seemed to have given it, that his student was bad at naming.
“Hmm, how about all of you help me come up with a name?”
“No, I want to be called Lil Red. This name is given to me by Brother, so I want to be called Lil Red.” At this moment, the Godly Phoenix suddenly said.
Chu Kuangren looked over to Honorable Xuan Qi and the others when he heard that.
‘See, even she has agreed to it.’
“Godly Phoenix, your name will stick with you for the rest of your life. I don’t ask for it to be a very majestic one, but this Lil Red is way too unflattering.”
“Why don’t you change it to another one?”
Honorable Xuan Qi and the others quickly advised.
They thought of a scenario in the future when Godly Phoenix would battle someone and announce her name to the opponent, that she would say, “I’m Black Heaven Sect’s Lil Red!”
They figured that even the enemy would laugh out loud.
No, she had to change it!
Honorable Xuan Qi and the others persuaded her for the name change as best as they could, but the Godly Phoenix was unexpectedly resilient regarding this matter. No matter what other alternative names they suggested, she would not accept them.
“I don’t want it. I want to be called Lil Red,” Godly Phoenix said. This was the first name that Chu Kuangren had given her, so it had a special meaning to her.
At the side, Lan Yu stared at Godly Phoenix, seemingly understanding her predicament.
After all, her own name was also coined by Chu Kuangren.
No matter how unflattering it might be, she still liked it.
“How about this? Lil Red will be your nickname, but your proper name would be Chu Hong.”
Chu Kuangren stroked the Godly Phoenix’s feathers and said, “Since you call me Brother, then from now onwards, you’ll take my surname.”
Godly Phoenix cocked her head to one side. “Alright, I shall be called Chu Hong.”
Honorable Xuan Qi and the rest of the people exchanged glances with each other as they could only go along with it.
“Fine, fine, Chu Hong doesn’t sound too bad.”
“Sigh, shame that you didn’t use Feng Aotian, the name I suggested. How domineering it would have sounded.”
“The Feng Xiaoyao name that I came up with sounds even better. I was hoping that the divine beast would get to enjoy good fortunes and live a carefree in the future.”
“Chu Hong… well at least it sounds much better than Lil Red.”
The “naming the divine beast” conflict had thus rested.
“Congratulations Host, you have drawn the Starlight Grade Enlightenment Card.”
Eh, an Enlightenment Card of the Starlight grade?
That was some good stuff.
Chu Kuangren opened his inventory to see that there were at least a dozen of them under the Enlightenment Card tab. There were grade variants of Silver, Gold, and even Starlight. Each of them could put someone into a state of epiphany right away.
He stared at these Enlightenment Cards and an idea suddenly popped up in his head.
He walked out of the Daoist Palace.
Along the way, every disciple who met him bowed to show him respect.
“Greetings, Sect Leader.”
“Greetings, Sect Leader.”
Chu Kuangren himself was not at all unaccustomed to that.
From Elder Senior Brother to a Sect Leader, it was just a change of address. As for the other stuff, he had a few elders helping him out.
In truth, besides his switch of identity, he had yet felt any difference between being a Sect Leader versus an Elder Senior Brother so far.
Everything still went on as usual.
He arrived at the Black Heaven Sect’s library where countless sword techniques were stored. His purpose here today was to realize what he had in mind earlier.
He stepped up to the library’s third floor and picked up one of the swordsmanship tomes. He started flipping through the pages and read on. Back then, he had self-created a Sage Ruler Technique in this very library, so he already knew all the sword techniques here by heart.
However, for the last few years, his adroitness in terms of techniques was already incomparable to his past self. Hence, he came back here so he could deepen his understanding of these techniques. He wanted to apprehend them completely and even exceed the technique’s original creators.
He took out a Starlight Grade Enlightenment Card and crushed it.
Instantaneously, he entered a state of epiphany.
He began reading through each book in the library once. Combining the Enlightenment Card with the Meditational Clarity Trait, each swordsmanship book that he read was as though they had been ripped apart and reasserted as he gained a complete understanding of its contents.
After half a day.
A gush of Sword-based Daoist Rhyme was seen surging up into the air from the library.
All the Black Heaven Sect disciples were staggered by it.
“It came from the library. What’s wrong?”
“It’s from the library again? Eh, why did I use the word ‘again’?”
“This kind of Daoist Rhyme is so marvelous. It’s the Sect Leader.”
“What is the Sect Leader up to again? Quick, go have a look.”
All the disciples and elders arrived outside of the library, and when they saw Chu Kuangren reading, they were not surprised at all.
“It really is the Sect Leader.”
“What is the Sect Leader up to this time?”
“Hah, even if the Sect Leader self-creates another Sage Technique this time, I wouldn’t be surprised at all. This really has become a norm here.”
The crowd was already immune to the commotion that Chu Kuangren constantly cooked up. They decided to stick around outside the library and have a look since it would not disturb him anyway.
Elder Ruyan and a few others had arrived as well.
When they noticed the Sword-based Daoist Rhyme that circulated above the library, she did not seem surprised at all. At this point, she was only curious as to what Chu Kuangren would do next.
Deep within the Black Heaven Sect, in a few cottages.
“This little guy has only just become the Sect Leader yesterday, so what is he up to again today?” Black Heaven’s Third Forefather voice was heard from within.
“Heh, my student has humiliated himself in front of you all.” Honorable Xuan Qi, who had just finished building a cottage and joined the cottage group, laughed as he said.
“Ninth Forefather, you’re humblebragging, aren’t you?”
The Ninth Forefather mentioned here was referring to Honorable Xuan Qi.
Everyone there could make out the hidden meaning behind what he just said, and they could not help but feel jealous. Although all of them were from Black Heaven Sect, Honorable Xuan Qi was Chu Kuangren’s teacher, so their relationship would surely be closer as compared to the others.
“Hey, look. There’s a change.”
Just then, the Third Forefather said.
From their spiritual thought, they could feel that the majestic Sword-based Daoist Rhyme atop the library had suddenly started to evolve.
The Sword-based Daoist Rhyme circulated and then transformed into a landscape of mountains and rivers!
Contained within was a Sage’s Aura.
“This is… a Sage Technique!” Black Heaven’s Third Forefather exclaimed.
“This energy indeed points to a Sage Technique. This little guy is truly an extraordinary talent. I can’t believe he has just created another Sage Technique.”
Black Heaven’s Third Forefather expressed his shock.
“Ah, although this isn’t as astonishing as his self-creation of an Emperor Technique the last time, being able to self-create a Sage Technique is already unbelievable for someone at the Battle Monarch Realm. I really have no clue as to how he manages to do that.”
“Hang on, there’s another change.”
The Sword-based Daoist Rhyme flowed in the air above the library and morphed into more various types of conjurations. There was the mid-day sun, the transcendent galaxy, the critters, the frost hale…
Each conjuration had with it the energy of a Sage’s Aura.
Each one of them was Sage Techniques!
