Fantasy: I! Accept disciples and become stronger! - Chapter 12
The members of the Gui family were placed in a quiet and elegant courtyard. Looking at the surface alone, there was nothing special about the courtyard. However, it was impossible to look at the surface alone. The intensity of the spiritual energy here was simply incomparable to the outside world.
“I’m afraid that one day of cultivation in here is equivalent to two or three days in the outside world. If I can continue cultivating here…”
A disciple of the Gui family spoke eagerly as he sensed the incomparably pure and dense spiritual energy around him.
“Don’t even think about it. Other than the young miss, we probably won’t have this chance.” Someone sighed. This cultivation environment was not theirs.
The second Elder smiled and shook his head.
The younger generation of the Gui clan was more concerned about their interests. However, as the second elder of the Gui clan, he was more concerned about the interests of the clan.
With such a powerful master, one could imagine how much Gui Yiyi would accomplish in the future.
The Nascent Soul Realm may not be within her reach but becoming a high-level Soul Condensation Realm expert was definitely within reach. In the future, she could become an elder of the Profound Sword Sect
Although this might not have anything to do with them, do not forget that Gui Yiyi was a member of the Gui family.
The stronger Gui Yiyi was, the higher her status would be. Even the Gui family’s status would rise with the tide. Not to mention anything else, just the words of Elder Xuan’s personal disciple alone was enough to make the Gui family existence that no one in Half Moon City dared to provoke.
In the future, even the Wang Family, whose strength was above their Gui family, would have to be polite to them.
Thinking that the Gui family’s current situation had not only been resolved but also that a Nascent Soul expert had been listed as a backer, the Second Elder was so excited that he couldn’t wait to fly back to Half Moon City and inform the patriarch of this matter.
Of course, the Second Elder knew that this was impossible.
Flying through the air was the sign of a King realm expert. He was a small Soul Condensation Realm expert…
Thinking of the Patriarch, the Second Elder sighed slightly.
Ever since he learned that Duan Li of the Duan Clan had accepted the Witherwood Gate’s elder as his master, the patriarch seemed to have aged a lot throughout a single night. It wasn’t just him, but everyone in the Gui Clan had seen all of this.
For this reason, the Patriarch did not hesitate to put his body down and beg for help everywhere. However, every time he returned, he would return without success. Every time he returned, they would be able to see that the white hair on the Patriarch’s head had increased.
For the sake of the clan, the Patriarch could have been said to have broken his heart.
Half Moon City, the main hall of the Gui family, all of the elders were gathered here, including the Grand Elder.
At this moment, everyone in the Gui family was like ants on a hot pot, anxious and desperate. When they thought of the Gui family that had been passed down for hundreds of years and was about to be destroyed in the hands of their generation, they felt an indescribable bitterness in their hearts.
The noisy hall quickly became quiet due to the arrival of one person.
This person was none other than the patriarch of the Gui Clan, Gui Tiancheng.
At this moment, everyone’s eyes looked at Gui Tiancheng, their eyes carrying traces of hope.
They longed for the good news that the Patriarch had brought back.
“Patriarch, what did they say? The Liao family… Have they agreed?” The First Elder’s voice was somewhat anxious.
“They agreed, but… The Liao family only agreed that they would come forward to help us plead our case, but they would not join in…”
Flying Feathers City was one of the top ten cities in the southern region of Zhennan Province. Its overall strength and scale were greater than Half Moon City.
Flying Feathers City had eight great clans, and without exception, each of them had experts at the eighth level of the Soul Condensation Realm.
The Liao family that the Great Elder spoke of was one of them.
The current Liao Clan’s Patriarch was an expert at the peak of the eighth level of the Soul Condensation Realm!
On the other hand, the place Gui Tiancheng went to was the Liao family of Flying Feathers City.
The relationship between the Gui Clan and the Liao Clan was ordinary. The reason why the two clans were connected was that the ancestors of the two clans were close friends back then. Moreover, the Gui Clan’s ancestor had saved the Liao Clan’s ancestor’s life. It could be said that he owed the Gui Clan a great favor.
The relationship between the two clans back then was pretty good. Although the Liao family didn’t seem to care much about the Gui family, they had always interacted with each other because of the friendship between the ancestors.
However, ever since the ancestors of the two clans passed away one after another, the relationship between the two clans had greatly deteriorated. If it wasn’t for the fact that the Liao Clan owed the Gui Clan a favor, then the two clans would probably have long lost contact.
No matter how deep the relationship between their ancestors was, it was still a matter of the ancestors. Now that the two forefathers were no longer present, the so-called friendship would naturally disappear.
This time, Gui Tiancheng had gone to the Liao family of Flying Feathers City precisely because he wanted to use this favor.
Originally, when they heard that the Liao Clan had agreed, the Gui Clan’s people felt a wave of joy. However, when they heard the condition the latter had just agreed on, more than half of their joy dissipated.
“A promise to speak up? Wasn’t this a just promise? What’s the difference between this and not agreeing? If it wasn’t for the fact that our Elder Ancestor of the Gui Clan saved their Ancestor’s life back then, would the Liao Clan be alive today?”
A member of the Gui family said angrily.
To just speak up? How much was the Liao Clan’s face worth?
Although Patriarch Liao and Duan Li’s master were both at the peak of the eighth level of the Soul Condensation Realm, Duan Li’s master was backed by an enormous creature like the Witherwood Gate. The chances of him giving face to the Liao family were negligible.
“Forget it. As expected, even though the Liao Clan is strong, compared to the Witherwood Gate… There’s still a big gap.” The Great Elder shook his head. Even though he was furious, it wasn’t that he couldn’t understand the Liao family’s actions.
Not to mention anything else, if he was the Liao family, he probably wouldn’t have gotten involved.
If it was just Duan Li’s master, then it would be fine. However, behind Duan Li’s master was the Witherwood Gate, a giant that possessed Nascent Soul experts.
Faced with such a huge monster, the Liao family was extremely likely to be caught in the crossfire if they were to join the Gui Clan.
Thus, even if he agreed to speak up, it was most likely a decision that the Liao family’s patriarch had made after a long time of deliberation. In the Liao family’s words, they were all extremely benevolent and righteous. Who had caused the Gui family to provoke someone that they shouldn’t have provoked?
Everyone in the hall, including Gui Tiancheng, fell silent.
So far, he had thought of all the methods he could think of, and all the people who needed to ask had also asked. All of his relationships had been contacted, but none of them dared to participate.
The members of the Gui family were already in despair.
“Right now, I can only place my hopes on Lan’er’s side.”
Third Elder returned to his chair and closed his eyes.
The Lan’er he spoke of was naturally Gui Lan.
“I’m afraid… I don’t have much hope either. The Profound Sword Sect is an existence even more powerful than the Witherwood Sect. Such a sect isn’t that easy to enter.” The Great Elder shook his head.” This… Perhaps, it’s the end of my Gui Clan.”
Sometimes, he had no choice but to accept his fate.
If this didn’t happen, it wouldn’t take long for the Gui family to surpass the Duan family and become the second greatest clan in Half Moon City. Unfortunately… There was no if.
