Fantasy: I! Accept disciples and become stronger! - Chapter 20
The next morning, everyone who had spent an entire night in the Chaotic City set off early.
The incident yesterday caused Gui Xinmeng and the others to have a little more respect for Xuan Yi. Along the way, they were much more reserved. Other than Gui Yiyi from time to time saying a few words to Xuan Yi, the others did not dare to communicate with Xuan Yi at all.
Xuan Yi saw all of this.
He smiled bitterly but did not mind. It would be better if no one bothered him. That way, he could focus on teaching Gui Yiyi.
Xuan Yi planned to raise Gui Yiyi’s strength by a few levels before she arrived at Half Moon City. It would be best if she successfully comprehended the embryonic form of sword intent.
Originally, with Xuan Yi’s guidance, even without the Sword Soul Grass, it was inevitable for Gui Yiyi to comprehend the initial form of Sword Intent. However, the appearance of the Sword Soul Grass had greatly reduced Gui Yiyi’s time needed for her to comprehend the initial form of Sword Intent.
At a certain moment, Gui Yi’s eyelashes fluttered as she sat cross-legged on the back of the Scarlet Flame Sparrow, and her eyes suddenly opened. A wisp of ecstasy was hard to conceal in the depths of her eyes.
Gui Yiyi was interrupted by Xuan Yi just as she spoke.
Xuan Yi’s gaze was gentle as he sent a voice transmission, “Don’t be in a hurry. At that time, the Half Moon City Grand Competition will give that so-called Duan family’s “genius” a pleasant surprise. Haha ……”
The moment Gui Yiyi had opened her eyes, Xuan Yi sensed something.
She had already comprehended the embryonic form of sword intent.
In the entire Heavenly Wind Kingdom, even though there were people who comprehended it, there was no one in the entire Heavenly Wind Kingdom who could comprehend it at the Qi Condensation stage!
Gui Yiyi, who was at the fourth level of Qi Condensation, comprehended the embryonic form of Sword Intent, she would probably have few opponents in the Qi Condensation Realm. An ordinary ninth level of Qi Condensation would probably be defeated in a single strike.
The ability to fight across five or six levels seemed to be extremely exaggerated, but it also benefited from the fact that Gui Yiyi’s strength was only at the fourth level of Qi Condensation. The lower her cultivation level was, the less difficult it would be to fight across levels.
A city appeared in front of Xuan Yi.
This city was Half Moon City.
Half Moon City, in the Gui family mansion.
Patriarch Gui Tiancheng kept pacing back and forth. The situation had lasted for quite some time.
Around the hall sat a group of senior members of the Gui family.
The atmosphere was solemn.
At this moment, everyone was waiting for their last hope.
“Patriarch! They are back! Second Elder, Young Master Gui Lan is back!”
At this moment, a hurried figure rushed into the hall.
Everyone in the hall was delighted when they heard this. Gui Tiancheng rushed out of the hall impatiently while the other senior members of the Gui family followed closely behind.
Gui Tiancheng and the others who rushed out of the hall saw the Second Elder and the others.
However, everyone’s gazes only stayed on the second elder for a moment before they simultaneously gathered on Gui Lan.
It wasn’t their fault. Although almost all of the Gui family’s talented juniors had gone to the Sword Profound Sect this time, in the hearts of all the Gui family’s higher-ups, the one who had the most hope of entering the Profound Sword Sect was none other than Gui Lan, who was the number one junior in Half Moon City. As for the other juniors, in their eyes, the chances of entering the Profound Sword Sect were extremely slim if they were to make a trip.
“How is it? Gui Lan, have you been chosen by the Profound Sword Sect!”
Gui Tiancheng asked first. This question caused all the higher-ups of the Gui family to hold their breaths because Gui Lan’s next answer was extremely likely to affect the Gui family’s survival!
Gu Lan’s expression changed indeterminately as everyone stared at him anxiously.
This expression caused the hearts of all the senior members of the Gui family, including the patriarch, Gui Tiancheng, to jump.
“Lan’ er, tell me! Have you entered the Profound Sword Sect?!”
The Great Elder also urged anxiously.
Gritting his teeth, Gu Lan felt extremely humiliated.
Hearing this, everyone in the Gui family felt as if their hearts had been struck by a giant hammer.
Like the sky had collapsed.
“The heavens are going to destroy my Gui family!!!”
The First Elder closed his eyes as if he accepted his fate.
“Patriarch, don’t worry. Although Gui Lan was not chosen, the young miss was chosen.”
“It’s actually the young miss ……”
“How is that possible? How is Young Miss’ talent comparable to Young Master Lan?”
He didn’t blame everyone for being so surprised. Gui Lan’s talent was so strong that it had already shaken the hearts of everyone. Not only was he the number one genius of the Gui family, but he was also the number one genius of Half Moon City.
Gui Lan, who was known as the number one genius in Half Moon City, wasn’t selected by the Profound Sword Sect. On the contrary, Gui Yiyi, who was inferior to Gui Lan in natural talent, was selected…
Although Gui Yiyi’s talent wasn’t bad, compared to Gui Lan, there was still quite a difference. Even in the Gui family, she couldn’t rank within the top three, let alone amongst the entire Half Moon City.
However, no matter how unbelievable it was, the truth was right before their eyes, and they couldn’t help but believe it.
The second Elder couldn’t be joking about this.
“Second Elder, are you telling the truth?”
Gui Tiancheng’s voice trembled slightly. Just now, when he learned that Gui Lan had not been chosen by the Profound Sword Sect, he had already lost all hope. But now, Second Elder’s words had pulled him back from the abyss.
Even though he knew that Second Elder couldn’t deceive him, and even more impossible for him to joke about such matters, he still couldn’t help but ask again.
“Absolutely.” The second elder nodded his head heavily and continued, “Not only that, but Yiyi has also become a disciple of an extremely powerful elder of the Profound Sword Sect. Patriarch, our Gui family is saved!”
When they heard this, all the higher-ups of the Gui Clan, including Gui Tiancheng, were shocked!
An elder of the Profound Sword Sect!
They knew very well what the words’ elder’ meant.
Although the Profound Sword Sect was not the strongest in Zhennan Province, it was still one of the top sects in Zhennan Province!
Someone who could become an elder was at least the high level of the Soul Condensation Realm!
Gui Yiyi! She had accepted such an expert as her master!
“Good, good, good!”
Gui Tiancheng was so excited that he was incoherent. Fortunately… Fortunately, the Gui family had not been destroyed by him. Otherwise, he would have been a sinner of the Gui family!
“I almost forgot. Patriarch, let me introduce you. This is Elder Xuan of the Profound Sword Sect, Yiyi’s master. This time around, we returned to Half Moon City together to resolve the matter of the Witherwood Gate.”
After feeling excited, the second elder remembered that before he could do anything else he had to introduce Xuan Yi in a hurry.
It was also at this time that the members of the Gui family noticed the young man standing beside Gui Yiyi.
Earlier, almost everyone’s attention had been focused on Gui Lan and Second Elder, not paying attention to Xuan Yi’s existence at all.
When everyone in the Gui family noticed Xuan Yi, they were a little surprised.
This young man who did not seem to be much older than Gui Yiyi was the Profound Sword Sect’s Elder?
Although they knew that they couldn’t judge people by their appearances, Xuan Yi seemed to be a little too young…
“Senior Xuan, welcome, you must have come from afar…”
After chatting for a while, Xuan Yi left with Gui Yiyi.
The day of the Purple Moon Secret Realm’s opening was getting closer and closer. Xuan Yi wanted to increase Gui Yiyi’s strength as much as possible during this period so that she could protect herself after entering the Purple Moon Secret Realm.
Right now, Gui Yiyi’s strength was far from enough.
To the members of the Gui family, there were simply too many surprises today.
First, Gui Yiyi had joined the Profound Sword Sect, and she had even become a disciple of an elder of the Profound Sword Sect.
Then Gui Xinmeng returned.
After some explanation, Gui Tiancheng and the others had also learned about Gui Xinmeng’s experiences over the years.
When they found out that Gui Xinmeng’s master was an eighth level Soul Condensation Realm expert, the faces of all the higher-ups almost burst out laughing.
The Sword Profound Sect, Elder Xuan, and Gui Xinmeng’s master.
Their Gui family was about to rise!
“Right, Second Elder, how powerful is this Elder Xuan? Who is stronger or weaker?”
The one who asked this question was the Grand Elder of the Gui family.
As soon as those words were spoken, everyone’s gazes turned to Second Elder.
They were also extremely curious about Xuan Yi’s strength.
Xuan Yi was too young. If it wasn’t for the Second Elder’s words, they wouldn’t even have linked the Xuan Yi and the Profound Sword Sect’s Elder together
“Hehe, you guys might as well guess.”
The second Elder teased meaningfully.
“Seventh level Soul Condensation?”
A person who could become an elder of the Sword Profound Sect must be a high-level Soul Condensation Realm expert. What was a high-level Soul Condensation Realm expert? A person above the seventh level of the Soul Condensation Realm was at the high levels of their realm.
The one who spoke was Fifth Elder. When he heard this Second Elder glanced at him and shook his head.
“Eighth level of Soul Condensation?”
The second Elder looked at Patriarch Gui Tiancheng and shook his head.
“Don’t let us wait! Hurry up and say it.” First Elder snorted coldly and urged.
When the second elder saw this, he no longer intended to keep his mouth shut. He lightly spat out three words.
“Nascent Soul Realm.”
After a short period of silence, everyone who didn’t know about it widened their eyes as they stared at Second Elder in disbelief.
