Fantasy: I! Accept disciples and become stronger! - Chapter 16
Chapter 16. Gui Xinmeng’s Shock.
There was no suspense in this battle.
The difference in strength between the two sides was simply too great.
Of the three young men and women, the strongest was only at the ninth level of the Qi Foundation realm, and the weakest was at the seventh level of the Qi Foundation realm.
Such strength was not weak in the outside world. No matter how powerful the younger generation was, even if they were compared to some sect geniuses, they wouldn’t be inferior.
But… This was the Yellow Sand Mountain Range.
The bandits who were surrounding them were all at the Soul Condensation Realm.
“Damn it! Those bastards!”
Gui Xinmeng’s beautiful eyes were red. While she was in despair, there was even more humiliation!
With the strength of these bandits, killing them was easy.
But they did not!
The bandits that surrounded them were not only planning to kill them but plan on slowly playing with them until their deaths!
Just as the bandits were playing, a loud and clear cry came from the distant sky.
This cry alarmed many people in this region, including Gui Xinmeng and the bandits who were surrounding them.
Everyone’s eyes simultaneously looked towards the source of the cry.
A fiery red shadow flew over from the sky not far away. As the shadow approached, everyone finally saw its true appearance!
This was a… Flying demon beast!
Those with sharp eyes immediately recognized the origin of this demon beast!
“The Scarlet Flame Sparrow! Furthermore, it’s an adult Scarlet Flame Sparrow!”
“Look… there seem to be people standing on it!”
With the order of the leader, the bandits who were surrounding Gui Xinmeng, and the others instantly stopped their actions.
In this world, there were too many people with strange tempers, and no one could guarantee that the people on the Scarlet Flame Sparrow would not attack due to some odd sense of righteousness. Therefore, it was right to be careful. They were not afraid of ten thousand, but just in case.
In any case, the three of them would not be able to escape. It wouldn’t be too late to kill them, once the Scarlet Flame Sparrow passed.
However, just as everyone thought that the Scarlet Flame Sparrow would fly directly above this place, its wings suddenly slowed down, and then it dives to the ground under the shocked gazes of the bandits and Gui Xinmeng!
The bandits were dumbfounded. Gui Xinmeng and the others were also stunned.
“You three, come up.”
Xuan Yi’s voice slowly sounded when the Scarlet Flame Sparrow landed on the ground.
“Sister Xinmeng! Hurry up!”
At this moment, Gui Yiyi jumped out from behind Xuan Yi and waved her hand at Gui Xinmeng.
“Yiyi! How could it be you!?”
Gui Xinmeng’s mouth opened slightly, her face filled with disbelief.
She was unable to connect this Scarlet Flame Sparrow with Gui Yiyi and the others.
Gui Xinmeng’s vision was naturally not bad.
The Scarlet Flame Sparrow, especially an adult Scarlet Flame Sparrow, was an existence whose strength was comparable to that of her master! Her heart was filled with doubt, but Gui Xinmeng knew that this was not the time to ask.
“Senior brother and sister, hurry up. They are my clansmen.”
Gui Xinmeng’s senior brother and sister were also shocked.
They still knew some of Gui Xinmeng’s origins.
It was said that her clan leader was only at the fifth level of the Soul Condensation Realm.
Could it be that Gui Xinmeng had been lying to them? Gui Xinmeng came from a powerful clan?
No, it was impossible. Gui Xinmeng did not need to lie to them.
Looking at Gui Xinmeng’s appearance, he seemed to be filled with doubt.
The three of them boarded the Scarlet Flame Sparrow. The Scarlet Flame Sparrow flapped its wings and transformed into a fiery-red flying figure that shot into the sky.
From beginning to end, Xuan Yi ignored the bandits, as if they did not exist at all.
The bandits didn’t say a word.
It wasn’t that they didn’t want to, but that they didn’t dare!
When the Scarlet Flame Sparrow disappeared from the horizon, the bandits finally recovered their senses and touched their necks. They discovered that their bodies were soaked in sweat.
The bandit in the lead had a pale face. It was obvious that he had received quite a bit of shock.
At the same time, he felt extremely fortunate that they were not killed by that person.
“Sister Xinmeng, where have you been all these years? You haven’t contacted the clan. We thought…” On the Scarlet Flame Sparrow, Gui Yiyi impatiently asked.
“I… I was captured.” Gui Xinmeng looked a little embarrassed.
“Captured? By Who?” Gui Yiyi and the others were stunned.
“By my master…”
After an explanation, everyone finally understood what had happened.
It turned out that three years ago, on the way back to Half Moon City, Gui Xinmeng encountered a female eccentric. Without saying a word, she knocked Gui Xinmeng unconscious.
As for this strange person, she was Gui Xinmeng’s current master, a very powerful woman with a strange personality.
“If she wanted to take you in as a disciple, then she could have done it the normal way. Why would she knock you out and take you away?” Gui Yiyi could not help but ask. This Master of Gui Xinmeng was too strange.
From Gui Xinmeng’s story, Gui Yiyi learned that Gui Xinmeng’s Master was a peak eighth level Soul Condensation Realm cultivator. With her strength, she could just say that she wanted to take Gui Xinmeng as her disciple and Gui Xinmeng almost couldn’t refuse, but why did she use that method…?
“This… I also didn’t know that it wasn’t just me. Senior Brother Ye and Senior Sister Huang were the same… they are disciples of Master.”
“However, although Master is very strict and her personality is somewhat unpredictable, she is still very nice to us.”
“It’s not that I don’t want to contact the clan, but that my master doesn’t want to. She said we will be allowed to return to our clan after we break through the Soul Condensation Realm.”
“Sister Xinmeng, you….. already at the Soul Condensation Realm?”
Xuan Yi and Second Elder saw through Gui Xinmeng’s strength with a single glance. However, Gui Yiyi and the others were relatively weak, so they couldn’t see anything. Hearing Gui Xinmeng saying this, they thought that Gui Xinmeng had already broken through to the Soul Condensation Realm.
Looking at the shocked gazes of Gui Yiyi, Gui Lan, and the others, Gui Xinmeng shook her head with a bitter smile. “How is that possible? How could it be so easy to make a breakthrough to the Soul Condensation Realm? I’m only at the seventh level of the Qi Foundation Realm.”
“The Qi Foundation Realm… Seventh level…”
Although she wasn’t at the Soul Condensation Realm, her strength was at the seventh level of the Qi Foundation Realm which still shocked the Gui family’s younger generations.
Although Gui Xinmeng was older than them, she was still not too much older. At such a young age, she was already at the 7th Qi Foundation Layer… This kind of talent was no worse than the prodigies of the younger generation who were famous in Zhennan Province.
“But you haven’t broken through to the Soul Condensation Realm. How did you come back, Sister Xinmeng? Didn’t you say that your master wouldn’t allow it, right?” Gui Yiyi was puzzled.
“Originally, it was true. However, a few days ago, something seemed to have happened. Master suddenly agreed to let me return to the clan. I don’t know exactly why.”Gui Xinmeng shook her head.
Xuan Yi was somewhat enlightened when he heard this.
If his guess was correct, it should be related to the Purple Moon Secret Realm that was about to be opened.
“Sister Xinmeng, what about your master?”
“When Master returned to Zhennan Province, she said that she had something to do, so she separated from us. She told us to wait for her in Half Moon City. After she completes her task, she will head to Half Moon City to meet us.”
“Don’t just ask me everything. Yiyi, you have to properly explain to me what’s with this Scarlet Flame Sparrow?”
Gui Xinmeng wasn’t just confused about this, she couldn’t describe it as shocking either.
This was an adult Scarlet Flame Sparrow!
A mature Scarlet Flame Sparrow was also at the seventh level of the Soul Condensation Realm.
After all, her master was only at the eighth level of the Soul Condensation Realm……
“Master gave it to me.” Gui Yiyi’s face turned slightly red as she glanced at Xuan Yi in embarrassment.
Gui Xinmeng’s mouth slightly opened. Not only her, even her Senior Brother Ye and Senior Sister Huang also looked at Xuan Yi with shock on their faces……
They were not to blame for being so shocked. It was truly Gui Yiyi’s words that exceeded their expectations.
Originally, they had thought that Xuan Yi was Gui Yiyi’s friend, but they didn’t know he was Gui Yiyi’s master?
He was too young…
It seemed that he was about the same age as Senior Brother Ye…
Looking at the shocked expression on Gui Xinmeng’s face, Gui Yiyi quickly told her about the situation.
The more they heard, the more shocked Gui Xinmeng and the other two were.
When they found out that Xuan Yi was not only an elder of the Sword Profound Sect, he was also a Nascent Soul expert. They were so shocked that they couldn’t speak.
Nascent Soul Realm.
This young man, who was not much older than Senior Brother Ye, was a Nascent Soul expert!
Gui Xinmeng and the other two knew exactly what Nascent Soul experts were.
That was an existence that their master had to be respectful to and had bow down when she encountered one!
When Gui Yiyi mentioned the Duan family’s sudden disaster, she was still a little worried.
She was not worried about Duan Li’s master.
Her master could deal with a peak eighth level Soul Condensation cultivator.
However, the Witherwood Gate behind that person was a little troublesome.
If the Witherwood Gate behind that person did not participate, it would be fine. Once they did, even her master would be helpless.
When she learned that Gui Yiyi had not only become a disciple of the Sword Profound Sect but had also become had a Nascent Soul Realm expert as her teacher, she was also relieved.
With Xuan Yi present, not to mention Duan Li’s master, even the Witherwood Gate behind them could not do anything to the Gui family!
“Find a place to rest for the night. Let’s hurry tomorrow.”
After leaving the Yellow Sand Mountain Range unimpeded, Xuan Yi glanced at the setting sun and slowly spoke.
To Xuan Yi, it was the same whether he rested or not. Even if he didn’t sleep or eat for a few days, he wouldn’t feel sleepy or hungry, but Gui Yiyi and the others couldn’t.
“We will listen to Elder Xuan.” Everyone naturally agreed.
After traveling for a day, she was somewhat exhausted. Gui Yiyi’s stomach had long since started growling. However, she had been too embarrassed to speak.
The only city in this region.
As the name implied, the City of Chaos was a place of chaos.
Because they were close to the Dark Forest and the Yellow Sand Mountain Range, there were all sorts of people, including mercenaries, adventurers, fugitives, and so on. In short, this was a chaotic and ungovernable city.
There were no rules in the city, and the power balance was complicated. In this place, the person with the biggest fist was right.
By the time Xuan Yi arrived, the sky had already darkened.
In order not to attract the attention of others, the Scarlet Flame Sparrow transformed into an imprint that was imprinted on Gui Yiyi’s brows.
When they entered the city, Gui Yiyi and the others could see the unrestrained gazes of the people around them.
Gui Yiyi and the others were a little nervous. On the other hand, Xuan Yi was just like someone who had nothing to do with those staring at him.
This was related to strength.
To the weak, everything was filled with danger.
As for experts, as long as you were strong enough, any place would be a back garden.
After finding an inn, Xuan Yi walked alone on the streets of the City of Chaos.
When he entered the city, he heard quite a few people talking about a large auction being held in the Chaotic City, and there were quite a few good things.
As there was nothing to do, Xuan Yi planned to go and take a look. Perhaps there was something good about it.
As for Gui Yiyi and the others, Xuan Yi was not worried.
Not to mention the Scarlet Flame Sparrow, Xuan Yi had placed an imprint on Gui Yi’s body. Once she was in any danger, Xuan could sense it in an instant.
The auction house was located in the center of the city. When Xuan Yi arrived here, the auction seemed to have started.
This auction house here was naturally not a simple place. They had to be unique to do business in the City of Chaos. It was said that behind this auction house stood a peak seventh level Soul Condensation Realm cultivator! It was one of the strongest powers in the City of Chaos.
