With just a slap, Zhang Jichen fell to the ground. If he had not summoned his protective spirit energy in time, Zhang Jichen would have surely fainted.
Even so, he could not even stand up.
Clearly, he had lost.
He had lost to this frog again.
How could this be?
Zhang Jichen found it hard to accept. How could this perverted frog know martial techniques?
Moreover, Tam’s technique seemed to be several times stronger than the martial technique he used!
However, what Zhang Jichen did not know was that even though Tam had lost the memories of the Wuji Saint, it had not forgotten anything else, such as the martial techniques and combat experience.
How could Zhang Jichen compare to the martial techniques and combat experience of a Saint Stage expert?
Although Tam had not completely fused these things, it was still very much capable of dealing with Zhang Jichen, who had just broken through to the Heaven Stage.
Bai Ye was surprised. This was too fast!
He then sighed and said, “I can’t believe I forgot that Tam has the Wuji Saint’s martial technique. If so, it’s normal for Jichen to lose..”
To a cultivator, the most important thing was cultivation, followed by battle experience and martial techniques.
It was not impossible for a person who mastered powerful martial techniques to fight someone stronger than them. This was also the reason why Zhang Jichen was confident of winning previously.
However, he never expected that not only did Tam know martial techniques, but the level of Tam’s techniques was also far above his. Even if Zhang Jichen had reached the middle-phase of the Heaven Stage, he would still most likely not be a match for Tam.
The difference between the two was too great.
“Master, I won.”
Tam released Zhang Jichen’s fist and slowly retreated.
Bai Ye nodded and looked at Zhang Jichen who was lying on the ground. He sighed and said, “Jichen, looks like you still have a long way to go before you can take revenge.”
After a while, Zhang Jichen got up from the ground and said firmly, “Master, I want to leave the Xuanyi Mountain Sect for the time being and go out to train!”
Bai Ye was stunned. He did not expect Zhang Jichen to suddenly say this, so he was somewhat dumbfounded.
“Master, I want to go out and train.”
Zhang Jichen repeated.
Bai Ye frowned.
“I want to become stronger!”
Zhang Jichen gritted his teeth.
Most cultivators would choose to go out and train after reaching the Heaven Stage to search for their own opportunities.
Even if there were no opportunities in the outside world, one would still benefit from such a trip as it could change their state of mind. Shen Zhiwen and Su Yan were living proof of this.
After losing to Tam again, Zhang Jichen had also arrived at the same conclusion.
Bai Ye thought for a moment and intended to refuse when he heard this, but then he nodded and agreed in the end. “Alright, I can allow you to go out and train, but remember that you must choose to flee as soon as possible when you encounter danger, and you must not act rashly.”
“Thank you, Master.”
Zhang Jichen bowed slightly and looked at Tam before turning to leave.
Of course, he could not leave now. He had to stabilize his cultivation and make preparations.
“Never would I have thought that this matter would have such a huge impact on him.”
Watching Zhang Jichen leave, Bai Ye felt a headache coming on.
Although Bai Ye often bullied and ordered Zhang Jichen around, and even used his body to test medicinal pills, Bai Ye still… loved Zhang Jichen!
“It’s all your fault.”
As he spoke, Bai Ye raised his hand and slapped Tam.
Tam immediately looked aggrieved at his master’s reprimand.
“But that might not be a bad thing for him.”
Qin Jue said meaningfully.
It had to be known that when Bai Ye accepted Zhang Jichen as his disciple, it was because Zhang Jichen was the most talented disciple in the Xuanyi Mountain Sect besides Qin Jue.
However, his cultivation had rarely advanced and had always remained at the Earth Stage. It even took him quite a while to advance to the Heaven Stage.
Now, because of Tam, Zhang Jichen had actually successfully broken through in a few months. It could be seen that the main character template in the fantasy novels was implemented for a reason.
In the beginning of such templates, the main character would be forced to break off a romantic engagement or be humiliated by a large faction. Then, the main character would work hard and advance vigorously, beating all his enemies and finally taking revenge.
Although Zhang Jichen could not compare to those main characters, at this rate, it was not impossible for him to become a Supreme Stage expert in the future.
Sometimes, people needed to be pushed out of their comfort zone in order for them to find out their true strength.
“Uh… Yeah, that makes sense.”
Bai Ye smiled bitterly.
Bai Ye was still very happy that his disciple could become stronger. If Zhang Jichen really became a Supreme Stage expert in the future, perhaps he would even consider passing the sect master position to him.
As for making Qin Jue sect master, Bai Ye didn’t even think about it. With Qin Jue’s personality, making him the sect master was probably harder to do than just killing him.
The two chatted for a while more before Qin Jue left gracefully.
Returning to the cliff, Qin Jue took out the fiend beast meat stored in his storage ring, raised spirit energy flames, and began to roast it.
Not long after, a dense fragrance spread out, and Yun Xi gulped as she drooled.
“Master, can we eat now?”
Yun Xi asked impatiently.
Several breaths passed.
“Can we eat it now?”
Another few breaths passed.
Qin Jue :”…”
When did you become a recorder?
After eating and drinking their fill, the sky had already darkened. The drunk Qin Jue and Yun Xi lay on the grass and slept.
The next day, Zhang Jichen, who had already stabilized his cultivation, was about to leave the Xuanyi Mountain Sect when Qin Jue and Bai Ye rushed over to see him off.
After all, Qin Jue and Zhang Jichen had drunk together a few times before, and every time something happened, Zhang Jichen would inform him. The two of them had a good relationship.
What was worth mentioning was that Zhang Jichen had used some unknown method to hide the two meatballs on his chest.
Thinking about it, if Zhang Jichen did not hide that place, he would probably be laughed at to death by other cultivators.
“Remember, don’t act tough when you encounter danger, understand?”
Bai Ye said earnestly.
In Bai Ye’s opinion, Zhang Jichen’s safety was the most important, so he repeatedly advised him to stay safe.
In fact, with Zhang Jichen’s Heaven Stage strength, as long as he didn’t encounter a Supreme Stage expert, he would be able to escape even if he couldn’t win.
Zhang Jichen was rather touched after realizing that his master still cared about him.
“Also, bring this bottle of healing pills with you. I specially refined it last night. Don’t worry, there won’t be any problems this time.”
Bai Ye handed Zhang Jichen a bottle of pills and vowed.
This bottle of pills was refined by Bai Ye with the various high-level medicinal herbs Qin Jue had given him. It condensed a large amount of spirit qi, so Bai Ye was very confident.
Zhang Jichen :”…”
Why did he feel that it was not that simple?
“What? You don’t believe me?”
In order to confirm that the pill was fine, Bai Ye directly took out a pill and stuffed it into his mouth.
“Look, I told you it would be fine.”
Bai Ye grinned and said indifferently.
In the next second, Bai Ye suddenly frowned and revealed a strange expression.
“What’s wrong, Master?”
Zhang Jichen suddenly shivered. Fortunately, he was the one who had taken the pill.
Bai Ye silently put away the medicinal pill and pretended to be calm.
Zhang Jichen :”…”
It was indeed not that simple!
