Lord Xue Ying - Chapter 1026: Qian Yi Clan and Fan Clan
“Master, he is called Ying Shan Xue Ying, and is a disciple from the Southern Cloud Nation, Ying Shan Clan.” The male kneeling outside reminded, “Old Mother Ying Shan is an enemy of our Qian Yi Clan.”
“Hmph, my Qian Yi Clan has never placed that Old Mother Ying Shan in our eyes before. It is merely Old Mother Ying Shan who keeps holding on to the vengeance.” That violet-robed girl within the bamboo house sneered, “There is no need to bother about that old granny. Just send my invitation to that Ying Shan Xue Ying. As for whether he wants to come or not? That is none of my business.”
“Yes.” The male respectfully acknowledged.
Southern Cloud Sacred Religion, Xue Ying was currently seated cross-legged before his own cavern-dwelling. He sat on a mountain peak beside the coast breathing in the beautiful breeze of the world. He was presently focusing on deducing his own cultivation technique.
There was no other way.
He did not dare to try out moves that were too profound within the Southern Cloud Sacred Religion. One must know that he had finished training the first ten styles of the “Southern Cloud 12 Sacred Styles”, leaving just the final two styles left incomplete. He was trying to grasp those two final styles currently, and the moment he attempted to practice those moves, Xue Ying was sure it would be perceived by the array spirit established by the Southern Cloud King!
Both the Southern Cloud Capital and the Southern Cloud Sacred Religion were essential to the king. It was the territory where he spent a long time building.
This place had stringent security. No holes in it would be left open.
Even the cultivation rooms of disciples were monitored by the array spirit. The moment any ‘holes’ were left open, enemies would definitely make use of them and utilize it to assault the entire Southern Cloud Capital. Given how formidable the Southern Cloud King was, it was impossible for him to leave behind such gaps. One must know that the Great Void Heaven Temple had no place left unmonitored too!
Under normal circumstances, when disciples cultivated within their cultivation room, the Southern Cloud King would not care.
Unless unforeseen circumstances happened!
A young fellow of just five million years old could actually start practicing a technique at the God Yuan Palace ninth level? That was too strange! His actions would definitely be reported upwards by the array spirit.
‘With the status of Southern Cloud King, he should know that there are outsiders who reincarnated into this origin world right?’ Xue Ying thought, ‘I wonder what attitude the king has.’
Was it goodwill?
Or malicious intention?
And whether the number one expert of the primal chaos void, ‘Sacred Master’ had relations with the Realm Heart Great Land?
Currently, Xue Ying’s status had not reached that level yet. He knew too little, and hence, wasn’t willing to gamble! He dared not leave his fate in the hands of someone else. Thus, the most rational decision would be to act as if he was a real talent! Xue Ying would grow according to the category of era geniuses within the Realm Heart Great Land.
He would not be considered as the most talented one in the six great ancient nations, but it was okay if he was the most talented cultivator within the Southern Cloud Nation!
‘I’ve learned quite a few precious techniques within the Southern Cloud Sacred Religion, which means I could simply return back to Ardent Fire City now.’ Xue Ying thought. The tiny area, Ardent Fire City, was a much safer place. The security measures there were not as strict as that within the Southern Cloud Capital! With his current realm, it was impossible for Marquis Ardent Fire to discover his secrets.
Only in the Ardent Fire City would it be most appropriate for him to cultivate all he wanted, and practice the powerful moves.
A figure flew over from the distant.
‘He is here.’ Xue Ying felt a jolt of joy in his heart.
He was not in a rush to leave after learning all the techniques precisely because he was waiting for this day!
“Junior Disciple Brother Xue Ying.” A black-robed male smiled from outside, “I am Tian Chun Xue, a disciple who joined the Southern Cloud Sacred Religion earlier than you did.”
“Senior Disciple Brother Tian.” Xue Ying greeted.
“I came according to my master’s order to invite junior disciple brother over for a banquet.” The black-robed male waved his hand. A dull violet invitation letter flew over.
Xue Ying received it. The moment he saw the two words ‘Qian Yi’, he frowned. After that, his expression became much colder. He flipped through the invitation letter, reading through the content before casually throwing back: “Bring it back with you.”
The black-robed male frowned: “Why? Are you thinking of not showing respect for my master?”
“That time, your Qian Yi Clan has schemed against my Old Ancestor. Have you all forgotten it?” Xue Ying gave a cold snort.
The black-robed male snorted back before turning and left–rather hastily at that.
Xue Ying silently watched on.
Actually, he stayed in the Southern Cloud Sacred Religion precisely because he was waiting for someone. But that person was not from the Qian Yi Clan.
Within the Southern Cloud Capital, three organizations existed that loved befriending experts. One was in the faction under the crown prince! The crown prince was a child that the Southern Cloud King had when he was weak. Even though his talent was slightly weaker, the Southern Cloud King pampered him a lot. This instead resulted in a bossy temperament which the crown prince had! He was someone who exceptionally liked befriending experts from all over the place.
But his scope of view was slightly higher–he would only invite those who were at least at the Primal Chaos realm! And only those who were powerful or had a huge background. He would disdain those who were weaker on either.
Xue Ying came from the Ying Shan Clan and was only a Unity realm expert. It was likely that he would not fall into the scope of view of that bossy ‘crown prince’.
As for the other two organizations that loved befriending experts, both came from the six great ancient nations.
One was Qian Yi Clan from the Moonflower Ancient Nation. The Moonflower Ancient Nation was practically at the bottom amongst the six great ancient nations and was comparable to the Towering Sky Ancient Nation! Nevertheless, it was different from the low-profile Towering Sky Ancient Nation that always remained in hibernation. The Moonflower Ancient Nation focused more on transacting businesses. One could find experts from this nation practically across the entire Realm Heart Great Land. They permeated into various places in search of many ancient remnants left behind by powerful experts; they sought for treasures, absolute arts, and others.
The Qian Yi Clan was a colossal clan with a total of eight Cosmos Gods backing it!
‘Qian Yi Xiao’ was the chief manager of the Qian Yi Clan situated in the Southern Cloud Nation. She was a huge expert at the ninth level and liked befriending with everyone. At the same time, she was increasing the influencing power of the Moonflower Ancient Nation within the Southern Cloud Nation subtly.
It’s a pity…
The Qian Yi Clan had schemed against Old Mother Ying Shan during an adventure to an ancient remnant for the sake of treasures. With the violent temper which Old Mother Ying Shan had, both parties fiercely fought with each other. Nevertheless, the Moonflower Ancient Nation was ultimately one of the six great ancient nations–they surpassed the Southern Cloud Nation in power. A Qian Yi Clan alone had a total of eight Cosmos Gods, of which the Southern Cloud King intervened in the end. Old Mother Ying Shan could only bear this loss she suffered.
‘She is here.’
Xue Ying saw a female figure flying over from afar.
That was a girl garbed in a light blue gown. As she flew over, she smiled: “Junior Disciple Brother Xue Ying, I am Fan Fei Qi and is your Senior Disciple Sister! I came here under orders from my elder brother to invite you over for a banquet.” Saying that a black-gold invitation letter flew over.
Xue Ying received it.
The letter had a single character–’Fan’–on it.
That was the clan he wanted to meet!
Other than the faction under the crown prince, ‘Qian Yi Xiao’ from the Qian Yi Clan of Moonflower Ancient Nation, the other organization was led by ‘Fan Tian Chong’, also from the Fan Clan of Summer Wind Ancient Nation.
The crown prince was slightly more domineering. He did things primarily for his reputation and would take rash actions.
Only Qian Yi Xiao and Fan Tian Chong were genuinely befriending all experts with potential. Xue Ying had reached the God Yuan Palace sixth level within five million years. He was clearly spotted by both and were recognized as a huge and upcoming character within the Southern Cloud Nation.
‘Fan Tian Chong.’ Xue Ying thought.
Fan Tian Chong, being the chief manager of the Fan Clan branch in the Southern Cloud Nation, as long as he befriended the other party, by then, it was possible for him to show the spearhead to Xue Ying. It was merely a look, and Xue Ying believed Fan Tian Chong would not reject.
‘I’ve stayed in the Southern Cloud Sacred Religion until now all for the sake of thoroughly looking at that spearhead and view its profound mysteries.’ Xue Ying thought. Even though he had would only be looking through it once, he would remember most of the profound mysteries inherent. Xue Ying was confident of comprehending more of the Dao of Void according to the profound mysteries in the complete spear belonging to ‘Scarlet Cloud Paragon Master’. Even though Xue Ying had comprehended just part of it, he was confident that the complete absolute art was not any weaker than the “Southern Cloud 12 Sacred Styles”.
Of course, the Southern Cloud 12 Sacred Styles was easier to learn since it was a complete absolute art.
The difficulty of learning the profound mysteries within the spear would likely be ten to a hundred times harder. It required him to ponder over it carefully. But with his foundation, Xue Ying was still confident of doing so. Furthermore, by relying on this spear, he would be able to unleash a stronger power!
“Alright. I’ll definitely attend the banquet tonight.” Xue Ying smiled.
“Junior Disciple Brother Xue Ying, I’ll come and pick you up tonight then.” The light-blue-gowned girl, Fan Fei Qi giggled. She had a relatively good impression of this young man in front of her.
