Chapter 216: Congratulations From Everywhere
Translator: Atlas Studios Editor: Atlas Studios
In fact, the Three Major Sects and the Six Great Clans had all been warned by the mysterious experts sent by Long Zhen.
Therefore, the Profound Yellow Sect’s decision to acknowledge the Xuanyi Mountain Sect had also made things easier for the Archaic Mysteries Sect and the Sword Sect.
After all, there wasn’t anyone who would be willing to offend a Legendary Stage expert for no reason.
Especially since it was very likely that there was a powerful faction backing this Legendary Stage expert. If they were careless, they would be doomed.
As long as the Xuanyi Mountain Sect had no intention of becoming enemies with them, they could all become good friends.
At the cliff of the Xuanyi Mountain.
When he saw the news on the Spiritnet, Qin Jue was rather speechless.
In fact, neither Bai Ye nor Mu Ziqi had any intention of becoming one of the Four Major Sects.
As mentioned before, Bai Ye’s personality was similar to Qin Jue’s. Apart from pill refinement and cultivation, he basically did nothing. Otherwise, he wouldn’t have been complacent staying in the area after advancing to the Supreme Stage.
If it weren’t for Bai Ye’s personality, the Six Great Clans would not have been able to take over Brilliance City.
As for Mu Ziqi, she was originally from a hidden clan and did not pay much attention to the outside world. Now that she had gotten what she wanted after leaving the Mu Clan to look for Bai Ye, why would she bother caring about such titles?
In any case, the Xuanyi Mountain Sect had now replaced the Thunder Breeze Sect and had become the new fourth major sect. The Spiritnet’s initial doubts had also turned into “congratulations”.
In the beginning, people had doubts because they did not believe that a Legendary Stage expert would suddenly appear in a place like the Xuanyi Mountain Sect.
But now, even the Three Major Sects had acknowledged it, so who else dared to say anything?
Two days later, the Six Great Clans sent envoys to the Xuanyi Mountain Sect and announced their withdrawal from this area. They also handed over Brilliance City.
This decision was made by the six patriarchs after much hesitation.
It couldn’t be helped. If the Xuanyi Mountain Sect only had one or two Supreme Stage experts, they might be able to rely on their own foundation to act like nothing happened and continue to stay in Brilliance City.
However, since the Xuanyi Mountain Sect now had a Legendary Stage expert, they could no longer stay there and not do anything. If they did not leave in time, who knew what would happen? They didn’t want to risk being attacked by the Xuanyi Mountain Sect.
One had to know that even if the Six Great Clans joined forces, they would still not be a match for one Legendary Stage expert.
They might as well be tactful and leave a good impression. Perhaps the Xuanyi Mountain Sect would give them some benefits in the future.
Although Bai Ye didn’t have any interest in Brilliance City, he also did not plan on refusing something that was gifted to him so easily.
Not only was Brilliance City the largest city in a radius of 5,000 kilometers, but its location was also special. Cultivators often passed by there.
Controlling Brilliance City was equivalent to controlling all the Martial Dao factions in this area.
As such, the First Elder, Wang Quan, quickly represented the Xuanyi Mountain Sect and took over Brilliance City from the Six Great Clans.
With the Xuanyi Mountain Sect behind his back, First Elder Wang Quan believed that no one would dare to make things difficult for him.
Moreover, Bai Ye had specially asked Tam to accompany and help out the First Elder.
As for Qin Jue, he had been staying at the cliff during this period. Every day, besides drinking and singing, he would sleep and occasionally chat with Luo Weiwei. His days were relaxed and comfortable.
What was worth mentioning was that Luo Weiwei’s cultivation speed was becoming faster and faster. Furthermore, she also claimed to have been experiencing an indescribable feeling recently, as if something was about to awaken in her.
Qin Jue didn’t pay much attention to this. He dismissed it as a change in physique due to her bloodline being sealed for too long.
On this day, the sun was bright and the wind was gentle.
Qin Jue was lying on the edge of the cliff sleeping when he suddenly sensed someone approaching. He opened his eyes and found that it was Bai Ye.
“What’s the matter?” Stretching lazily, Qin Jue said indifferently.
In his impression, Bai Ye would only come to find him when he had encountered something he could not handle.
“Um… You should know that the Xuanyi Mountain Sect is now part of the Four Major Sects, right?”
Bai Ye rubbed his hands and sat next to Qin Jue.
“Yeah, I’m well aware.”
Qin Jue took out a pot of spirit wine and nodded slightly.
“In two days, the sect masters of the Three Major Sects will come. So will the leaders of many other factions. As the honorary vice sect master, will you make an appearance?” Bai Ye probed.
“What is their purpose for coming here?”
Qin Jue frowned.
“Uh… they said they wanted to congratulate Ziqi for advancing to the Legendary Stage.”
Qin Jue found it to be unnecessary.
“Alright, I understand.”
After pondering for a moment, Qin Jue quickly understood what was going on.
Rather than saying that they were here to congratulate Mu Ziqi on her breakthrough, it would be more appropriate to say that they were here to probe the Xuanyi Mountain Sect.
Those low-level factions might not have any ideas, but the sect masters of the Three Major Sects definitely had ulterior motives.
It was just like how after their visit to the Xuanyi Mountain Sect and realizing the lack of foundation in the sect, the Six Great Clans were unwilling to let go of Brilliance City even though they had declared their intention to leave this area.
If it weren’t for the fact that the strength of the Legendary Stage was too great, they probably wouldn’t have been willing to leave Brilliance City.
Bai Ye wanted Qin Jue to appear only to prevent any accidents from happening.
However, what Bai Ye did not know was that the sect masters of the Three Major Sects had already been warned by an expert that was likely to be from a large faction in the Central Continent. After that, how could they dare to act rashly?
At most, they would just check for any special spirit energy fluctuations nearby.
“Thank you, Junior Brother!”
Bai Ye was overjoyed. He didn’t expect Qin Jue to agree so readily.
“Yeah, I have to go back to sleep.”
With that, Qin Jue directly lay down on his back and ignored Bai Ye.
Two days quickly passed. In the blink of an eye, it was time for the various factions to visit the Xuanyi Mountain Sect.
Before dawn, many air-transportation spirit artifacts had already started appearing in the horizon. At first, only low-level factions arrived, but as time passed, the ranks of the factions who came to congratulate them grew higher and higher. By then, the Six Great Clans had also arrived.
Fortunately, Bai Ye had already made preparations. He had temporarily built a courtyard that was used to receive guests. And it was enough to accommodate more than a thousand people.
“Congratulations on the promotion of the Xuanyi Mountain Sect to the Four Major Sects. This is a congratulatory gift from our Dark Abyss Valley.”
“This is our Pan Gate’s congratulatory gift.”
In an instant, the Xuanyi Mountain Sect became extremely lively. Many leaders of the factions sent congratulatory gifts one after another. They treated Bai Ye so affectionately it seemed as though they were Bai Ye’s brothers.
Their goal was very obvious. They wanted to cling to the Xuanyi Mountain Sect and cozy up to that Legendary Stage expert.
However, up until now, no one had seen Mu Ziqi.
Suddenly, three powerful auras appeared in the distance and quickly swept over. It was as if more than a thousand kilograms worth of weight had dropped from the sky!
“It’s the three sect masters!” Everyone gasped and thought at the same time.
In fact, many of the leaders present were vassals of the Three Major Sects.
It was no exaggeration to say that at least half of the high-level cultivators of the Southern Land were gathered here.
In the next moment, three tall figures appeared outside the Xuanyi Mountain Sect. All of them had heavy auras that were deep and vast, and they gave off an unparalleled feeling.
Apart from the sect masters of the Three Major Sects, who else could it be?
At this moment, an aura also rose from within the Xuanyi Mountain Sect. The owner of the aura looked at the three of them from afar, and was not any weaker than the three of them!
