Lord Xue Ying - Chapter 1282: Taking up a Teacher
Imperial Wind Qing Yin felt complex. Initially, it was her kindness that led her save Xue Ying in Great Wilderness. It was also her admiration and respect for someone that dared to venture into the Great Wilderness alone.
Thereafter when she found out that Xue Ying was an ‘Ascendant’, her curiosity for him grew.
Xue Ying had just landed on this world. In order for him to assimilate himself into this world quickly, he stealthily casted some Dao of Mirage and Illusory Realm technique. Even though it was not done fully without restraints, it had greatly increased his ‘charm’. That time on the huge ship which Xue Ying took out of the Great Wilderness, an absolute majority of guards held favorable feelings for Xue Ying. Only an extreme few like ‘Tie Cheng Liu’ disliked Xue Ying.
And ‘Imperial Wind Qing Yin’ who was influenced by the Dao of Mirage and Illusory Realm became even more favorable to Xue Ying! She even took the initiative to invite Xue Ying as a Cultivation Tutor.
‘I haven’t had thought that he would be so formidable.’ Imperial Wind Qing Yin thought.
“God Monarch Flying Snow.” Imperial Wind Lei said with a clear bright laughter.
Xue Ying and Bat Mountain Master both flew out of the battle platform and came to the side of Imperial Wind Lei.
“Crown Prince.” Xue Ying and Bat Mountain Master bowed slightly.
“God Monarch Flying Snow, this is where you are wrong. You have been so low-profiled previously. Who would have thought that you are so strong––even stronger than Bat Mountain Master.” Imperial Wind Lei laughed at Xue Ying.
“Talking about that, I do have to thank Crown Prince and Third Lady.” Xue Ying stated.
“Thank me?” Imperial Wind Lei felt startled. Imperial Wind Qing Yin was similarly stunned; her mouth was wide open.
Xue Ying continued with a smile: “Actually, I would have been on the disadvantaged end when fighting with Bat Mountain Master previously. It’s because of Crown Prince and Third Lady that I could take on the role as a Cultivation Tutor. And consequently, I was able to exchange for a scripture called within the Scripture Library. It was this scripture that inspired me to comprehend a new killing technique, boosting my strength to a whole new level beyond Bat Mountain Master.”
“What?” Bat Mountain Master felt astonished. The other party comprehended a new killing technique after perusing a scripture in the Scripture Library? In other words, God Monarch Flying Snow was weaker than he just before the other party entered the Scripture Library?
And it was because he had been too careful that led to his action of ‘initiating a spar’ within the Imperial Wind Clan that brought about his defeat?
‘No matter what, I can’t injure him even if I acted earlier on.’ Bat Mountain Master consoled himself.
Xue Ying continued talking to Imperial Wind Lei and Imperial Wind Qing Yin: “That is why I have to thank Crown Prince and Third Lady! Especially Third Lady for saving me when I was at my weakest moment.”
“Haha, this is fate.” Imperial Wind Lei laughed, “How about this, God Monarch Flying Snow, Bat Mountain Master, God Monarch Jian Yin, and fellow ladies and gentlemen, all of you are invited to my Floating Mountain Palace. I’ll be hosting a banquet tonight celebrating the addition of a new expert––God Monarch Flying Snow––in our High Mountain City.”
High above High Mountain City, there were three floating mountains. The energy holding them up was an array at the center.
Imperial Wind Clan constructed a palace above these mountains, transforming this place into the most luxurious entertainment ground in High Mountain City. Currently, there were many experts gathered here in the Floating Mountain Palace. The reason why so many God Monarchs came is to befriend ‘God Monarch Flying Snow’, someone who could even suppress Bat Mountain Master.
“God Monarch Flying Snow, this one is called Chuan Qing. I am just an unremarkable soldier from the Mysterious Fire Army stationed in High Mountain City.” A silver-haired old man chuckled.
“So it is God Monarch Chuang Qing from the Mysterious Fire Army.” Xue Ying acknowledged with surprise.
After scouring through the memories, Xue Ying had a deeper understanding of the various organizations within High Mountain City. He was also relatively familiar with the experts within this place. This ‘Mysterious Fire Army’ represented one of the three transcendental Great Royal Clans in the entire Divine Realm, the ‘Golden Sacred Clan’. Even though the three Great Royal Clans were transcendental and rarely participated in any struggle of the organizations under the world, they still relied on various methods to influence the Divine Realm.
For instance, the ‘Heaven’s Will Clan’. There would be a ‘Heaven’s Will Pavilion’ in almost every great city. For instance, one of the famous great experts in High Mountain City, ‘Xing Pavilion Master’, was the pavilion master of the Heaven’s Will Pavilion located in High Mountain City.
Or the ‘Golden Sacred Clan’ for instance. There would similarly be a small team from the Mysterious Fire Army in almost every huge cities. Most often, they were a team of five. This slight strength would naturally not influence the outcome of any competition between huge organizations. But it would allow the Golden Sacred Clan to have a greater understanding of the world.
“God Monarch Flying Snow, your battle with Bat Mountain Master has happened too quickly. I haven’t had the time to come and spectate before it ended.” Xing Pavilion Master came over to talk to Xue Ying too.
Many experts came to interact with them.
Those who dared to come without any invitation were at least a God Monarch.
Everyone was clear that this huge expert would definitely be able to influence the competition between various organizations in the High Mountain City. In the Divine Realm, ‘teleportation’ had already become a legend! When two cities battled, they had to fly slowly on their battleships before arriving at the battlefield! Just the time taken to fly would take an incredibly long amount of time. Furthermore, they had to bypass the Great Wilderness.
Hence, it was quite rare for great cities to enter into a war.
A great city was like a nation! Like Xing Pavilion Master and God Monarch Chuang Qing, even though behind them was the royal clan, they had long taken root in High Mountain City.
“God Monarch Flying Snow.” Imperial Wind Qing Yin took the initiative to come. She reached the side of Xue Ying before sitting down. There were many other attendants who hurried to pour wine for her.
“Third Lady.” Xue Ying revealed a grin. In the entire High Mountain City, the person whom he had the most favorable feelings for was this Third Lady.
“God Monarch Flying Snow is really impressive! So many God Monarchs are treating you so enthusiastically. Even my Big Brother has gifted you a residence and many attendants.” Imperial Wind Qing Yin muttered with slight melancholy.
Xue Ying was stunned.
This tone did not seem right. He could only deal with it with a smile: “If not for Third Lady’s timely rescue, I might still be trying to survive in the Great Wilderness.”
“Given your strength, God Monarch Flying Snow, I believe you could easily arrive at the nearest Great City after you endured through the most dangerous period.” Imperial Wind Qing Yin softly snorted, “You do know that the previous time I left the High Mountain City is for the goal of seeking Dawn Religion Master as my teacher?”
“I don’t.” Xue Ying felt apprehensive inwardly. Why would I know that you are seeking for a teacher?
Imperial Wind Qing Yin’s eyes were moving rapidly. She softly continued: “It’s a pity that Dawn Religion Master wasn’t willing to accept me as his disciple. That’s right too since I haven’t broken through to the God Monarch Realm yet I have a pile of other issues. Why would Dawn Religion Master accept me?”
Xue Ying continued listening from the side without intervening.
“Not too long from now, I would be visiting Eastern Wood City, or…” Imperial Wind Qing Yin’s voice became softer. No matter what the outcome was, whether she would become a plaything of that Ninth Prince from the Eastern Wood City or for Eastern Wood City to decline them, the Imperial Wind Clan would still face an impending disaster. It was highly unlikely for Imperial Wind Qing Yin to get a teacher any longer after that.
“God Monarch Flying Snow.” Imperial Wind Qing Yin said.
“Mn?” Xue Ying was startled.
“Can you be my teacher?” Imperial Wind Qing Yin suddenly asked.
“Become your teacher?” Xue Ying was startled, “Third Lady, what you cultivate is your bloodline. Is it related to the Void?”
“It isn’t.” Imperial Wind Qing Yin replied.
“Then I can’t really teach you much.” Xue Ying felt helpless.
“I am just asking if you can be my teacher?” Imperial Wind Qing Yin stared at Xue Ying.
“I am a Cultivation Tutor of the Imperial Wind Clan. If Third Lady requires me to provide some guidance, I naturally could do so.” Xue Ying replied.
“I need a true teacher.” Imperial Wind Qing Yin continued staring at Xue Ying.
Xue Ying felt as if this little miss of a great clan had fallen into some sort of remembrance. But to accept her as his disciple? Xue Ying hesitated momentarily before nodding with a smile: “Alright. I can accept Third Lady as my disciple.”
He owed this Third Lady a favor. So let he acquiesce to her request!
He came to this world as a guest without the desire to accept any disciples. But since he owed Third Lady a favor, even if he did not accept the other party as a disciple, he would still find an opportunity to repay this favor.
“Qing Yin formally greets Teacher.” Imperial Wind Qing Yin immediately stood and gave a formal kowtow.
Xue Ying accepted this kowtow.
And not too far away, both brothers Imperial Wind Lei and Imperial Wind Jin watched silently. They were clear that the only opportunity for the entire ‘Imperial Wind Clan’ to survive was with Eastern Wood Clan! Even though their little sister would suffer from a fate worse than death given the reputation of the Ninth Prince from Eastern Wood City, they had no choice. They were doing so for the survival of everyone in the Imperial Wind Clan.
Take on a teacher?
This God Monarch Flying Snow was a great expert ranked in the forefront of the entire High Mountain City. It was not a disgrace for Third Lady from the Imperial Wind Clan to take on this expert as her teacher.
“How many of these people would really live and die for our Imperial Wind Clan.” Imperial Wind Lei and Imperial Wind Jin watched at the various God Monarchs in the palace hall.
The disciples of the Imperial Wind Clan were born with the imprint of ‘Imperial Wind Clan’
But many other experts might perhaps fend off the enemy for the Imperial Wind Clan in the beginning, but the moment the city could barely hold off any longer, those experts might choose to stand by the side. For ‘Devil Heart Cult Master’ to grasp this city, he would require a huge number of experts too. Devil Heart Cult would not be willing to accept a dead city either. Hence, the experts like ‘Bat Mountain Master’, ‘Xing Pavilion Master’, ‘God Monarch Jian Yin’, and many others…
The controller of the city could change!
But these experts would remain!
After taking on a teacher, Imperial Wind Qing Yin was clearly feeling better. She chatted with Xue Ying on many topics, and Xue Ying was also listening to her.
Finally, it was the end of the banquet.
Xue Ying left along with the crowd. It was at this moment that Bat Mountain Master came to the side of Xue Ying. He transmitted a message with a smile: “Brother Flying Snow, the reason why my Bat Mountain had some conflict with you previously is all because of a brat called Tie Cheng Liu.”
“Tie Cheng Liu?” Xue Ying nodded slightly. After scouring through the memories, he had found out about the truth. He knew of that protector who was filled with hatred and dislike for him on that huge ship despite him releasing his ‘charm’.
“I wish to ask Brother Flying Snow how you want to deal with Tie Cheng Liu? I originally wanted to kill him directly, but I wish to ask Brother Flying Snow for your opinion on this.” Bat Mountain Master transmitted over.
