Wu Zhenjian was in a very good mood today. As a grade four pill refiner, he could be said to have received a lot of attention since coming to Brilliance City. Everyone was extremely respectful to him. Just now, he had even been invited by an elder of the Yin Clan to have some tea. The elder wanted him to join the Yin Clan as a Consecrator, and the rewards he offered were extremely generous.
Regarding this, Wu Zhenjian was incomparably happy. As long as he seized this opportunity, perhaps his Grass Pill Sect could directly enter Brilliance City and they could even become the direct lackeys of the Six Great Clans.
With Wu Zhenjian’s status as a grade four pill refiner, as long as he had sufficient resources, it was not impossible for him to advance to the Supreme Stage in the future.
Once he advanced to the Supreme Stage, the Grass Pill Sect would be an existence comparable to the Six Great Clans.
Wu Zhenjian was very ambitious, so he had never told anyone his inner thoughts, which was to replace the Wei Clan!
Ever since he had entered Brilliance City, this idea had become more and more intense. He had even thought about how he would attach himself to the Six Great Clans and advance to the Supreme Stage, reaching the peak of his life!
If he was lucky, that disciple of his might even be fancied by a woman from a certain clan. It didn’t matter even if she was dozens of years older, as long as they could get married.
With this thought in mind, Wu Zhenjian walked into the courtyard, preparing to mentally prepare his disciple.
Then, he saw Zhang Yang lying on the ground with his eyes rolled back. His body was constantly twitching as if he had just experienced a high tide.
“My dear disciple, what’s wrong? Are you alright?”
Wu Zhenjian was shocked and hurriedly went forward to ask.
Do I look like I’m fine?
“How disgusting. What is this?”
Seeing the sticky saliva on Zhang Yang’s body, Wu Zhenjian had a look of disdain.
Zhang Yang :”…”
Wu Zhenjian was a Heaven Stage cultivator after all. He waved his hand and spirit energy surged, instantly drying the saliva on Zhang Yang’s body. Then, he frowned and asked, “What happened?”
Zhang Yang’s entire body trembled as he climbed up from the ground. He pointed at Qin Jue’s room and said, “Master, you have to avenge me. The person in that room had insulted you. I was so angry that I attacked him. I didn’t expect that he had a particularly powerful fiend beast. I wasn’t his match at all.”
“Impudent! Who dares to bully a member of our Grass Pill Sect!”
Wu Zhenjian was furious and walked towards Qin Jue’s room.
“Sect Master Wu, why are you so angry?”
At this moment, the door to the side opened and a woman walked out, standing in front of Wu Zhenjian.
The woman’s long hair was tied up, and she was charming. She looked poised and noble, filled with the charm of a mature woman, causing one’s imagination to run wild.
Wu Zhenjian’s pupils constricted as he revealed a shocked expression. “It was your Heavenly Note Sect who bullied my disciple?”
Wu Zhenjian was very afraid of this woman. After all, she was a rare sound cultivator.
The so-called sound cultivators were cultivators that used music to attack their enemies. Their techniques were as difficult to deal with as illusions, and in some aspects, they were even more terrifying than illusions.
Therefore, unless there was no other choice, Wu Zhenjian was unwilling to fight with this woman.
“No, I’m not.”
Ye Yao shook her head.
“Then what do you mean?” Wu Zhenjian frowned.
“As the sect master, Sect Master Wu wouldn’t just attack a young man, right?”
Ye Yao smiled and said, “Besides, according to what I know, your disciple attacked first.”
“I can attest to that!”
Mu Xiaoyu crawled out from behind Ye Yao and said righteously.
“I can testify as well,” Liu Ping added.
Ye Yao was rather helpless towards these two disciples. If it weren’t for their request, she would definitely not interfere in their affairs.
After all, Wu Zhenjian was a grade four pill forger.
“Master, don’t listen to their nonsense…”
Zhang Yang didn’t expect the Sect Master of the Heavenly Note Sect to actually speak up for Qin Jue and hurriedly explained.
However, before he could finish his sentence, Wu Zhenjian directly slapped his face and said coldly, “Don’t lie to me again.”
Before Zhang Yang could react, he was slapped to the ground. He gritted his teeth in pain and did not dare to add fuel to the fire.
“Sect Master Ye, I’ve already taught my disciple a lesson. Can you move aside now?”
Ye Yao was stunned. She did not expect Wu Zhenjian to take such an approach at all. Now, even if she wanted to interfere, she couldn’t.
Without waiting for Ye Yao to speak, the door to the corner suddenly opened. Qin Jue walked out with a wine pot in his hand. He looked at Wu Zhenjian and said, “You’re the Sect Master of the Grass Pill Sect?”
Wu Zhenjian looked proud.
Although the Grass Pill Sect had only been established for less than a hundred years, it was the only alchemy sect within a radius of 5,000 kilometers. Just the number of grade three pill refiners alone numbered over a dozen, and with a grade four pill refiner like Wu Zhenjian holding down the fort, no one dared to offend him.
“What? Are you going to avenge your disciple?”
Qin Jue said with interest.
“Hmph, which sect are you from? How dare you bully my Grass Pill Sect.”
Wu Zhenjian released his spirit sense and questioned.
Unexpectedly, Wu Zhenjian didn’t sense any spirit energy fluctuations from Qin Jue’s body. Instead, he found an early-phase Heaven Stage fiend beast in the room.
Wait… what breed was this fiend beast?
Why have I never seen it before?
“Xuanyi Mountain Sect, Qin Jue.”
Qin Jue took a sip of wine and said truthfully.
“Xuanyi Mountain Sect? Could it be the Xuanyi Mountain Sect where Bai Ye lives?”
Although the Grass Pill Sect and the Xuanyi Mountain Sect had never interacted before, Wu Zhenjian had heard of Bai Ye’s name. After all, they were all factions within the Wei Clan’s territory.
Qin Jue was surprised. He didn’t expect that his unreliable senior brother would be so well-known.
“So you’re Bai Ye’s disciple. I’ve seen your master a few times in the past.”
Ye Yao smiled.
“No, I’m not his disciple.”
Qin Jue shook his head. “I’m his junior brother.”
Everyone was stunned.
Bai Ye actually had such a young junior brother.
“My senior brother is in seclusion and can’t leave the Xuanyi Mountain Sect for the time being, so I took his place at this banquet.”
Qin Jue shrugged his shoulders helplessly.
“Are you really Bai Ye’s junior brother?”
Ye Yao could not believe it.
“Hehe, I don’t care what your relationship with Bai Ye is. If you dare to bully a disciple of my Grass Pill Sect, you’ll have to pay the price.”
Wu Zhenjian snorted.
Since Bai Ye wasn’t here, Wu Zhenjian didn’t have anything to fear. So what if Bai Ye was his junior brother? A young man in his teens was someone he could bully as he pleased.
“Sect Master Wu, as the Sect Master of the Grass Pill Sect and a grade four pill refiner, it’s probably not appropriate for you to lower your status to deal with a young man,” Ye Yao said sarcastically.
If Qin Jue was only an ordinary disciple, Ye Yao might not have interfered anymore, but since she knew that this person was Bai Ye’s junior brother, Ye Yao couldn’t just sit by and do nothing.
“What a joke. He used that fiend beast to bully my disciple. Could it be that he wants me to pretend that nothing happened?”
In Wu Zhenjian’s opinion, the reason why Zhang Yang was in such a miserable state was entirely because of that Heaven Stage fiend beast.
However, Wu Zhenjian didn’t care. He had long since reached the peak of the Heaven Stage. To deal with an early-phase Heaven Stage fiend beast was simply too easy.
“Then what do you want?”
Ye Yao did not back down.
The commotion here quickly attracted the attention of the other cultivators in the courtyard. Seeing that it was two Heaven Stage experts confronting each other, they immediately turned into eager spectators.
