Chapter 16 - Tidying Up The Harvest, News Of The Three Disciples
Returning to Reclining Firewood Peak, Ye Changge began to count the harvest of the night.
The first was the Ethereal Song technique. Judging from today's usage, it was very powerful.
Perhaps in the future, he could use it to subdue many divine mutants that had gone astray.
After all, unlike humans, many wild mutants did not have anyone to guide them. It was easy for them to fall into the trap of blindly pursuing power, and their minds would be covered in dust.
Next was the pile of forbidden secret manuals.
After sorting them out, they were actually very comprehensive.
There were sacrificial methods that could collect beliefs. There were also holy scriptures of the ways of killing that could slaughter living beings and their growth.
There were also secret manuals of other races, such as the Demon Sealing War Dragon Portrait.
Although their uses were different, the requirements for cultivating these secret manuals were very harsh, and it was very likely that people would get lost.
In addition, the secret manuals each had their own personality, and they also had powerful strength. If one was not careful, one would not know whether it was a person cultivating, or a cultivation technique controlling a person.
No wonder the sect strictly controlled it. It was estimated that after so many years, many people did not know that the library had these forbidden techniques.
Although the secret manuals themselves still wanted to resist, they could do little in front of Ye Changge, who had already mastered the minor Indestructible Golden Body technique. They only indirectly suppressed him.
Letting out a breath, Ye Changge began to cultivate rapidly.
With his current realm and the bonus from signing in, the entry-level cultivation methods were very fast.
In the blink of an eye, a month passed.
Ye Changge called Li Shiyi back, who was cultivating sword techniques on the mountaintop.
"Your master has recently acquired some secret manuals, so I picked two. You can practice them."
After saying this, he handed over two secret manuals. "Empty Cicada Divine Walking technique" and "Moon Illumination Mystic Body".
Li Shiyi took them and separated them from Ye Changge. The two books trembled faintly again, as if they were about to resist.
Li Shiyi was greatly shocked. Through his palms, two strange auras were transmitted to his body, actually causing the circulation of spiritual power in his body to stop.
At the same time, the "True understanding of the Grand Purity Truth Sword principle" automatically emerged from his storage ring and directly smashed onto the two secret manuals.
In an instant, everything returned to normal.
Ye Changge smiled. "Go and cultivate well."
'It's as I expected of Master. The secret manuals he took out all seemed to have spirituality. Each of them is so powerful.'
With this thought in mind, Li Shiyi returned to his room to cultivate impatiently after bowing.
Ye Changge, whose strength had increased once again, returned to the secret room and began to check his inventory, calculating the materials he needed to collect next.
After all, the Indestructible Golden Body art was a gold-swallowing beast, a bottomless pit. But it was also Ye Changge's strongest and most absolute art.
After a few days, Ye Changge stood at the peak of Reclining Firewood Peak, gazing at the clouds in front of him.
"System, check in!"
"Congratulations, host, for obtaining 400 years of cultivation!"
"Congratulations, host, for obtaining information on the reincarnation of a divine artifact. Do you want to take a look?"
Ye Changge did not expect to be surprised again. He immediately said, "Take a look."
"The Divine Artifact, the Heavenly Star Mirror, was reincarnated. Previously, it gave birth to sentience for the divine artifact and assumed the name of Liang Yueyin. She became the Empress of a generation and established the Heavenly Star Divine Dynasty. After suffering a calamity, she reforged the Heavenly Star Mirror to recuperate."
"Now that the energy is sufficient, she has descended into the mortal world once again."
Hearing this explanation, Ye Changge secretly scoffed.
It was beating around the bush. Did he not just find another good disciple to take in? It was an old routine.
Thus, he found Li Shiyi and said, "I have a feeling that I'll need to go out on a trip. You should build a bamboo house in the mountains."
"Master, is there anyone who wants to live here? Do you have any requests?"
"It should be a newborn girl. I'm afraid that her family will come to live here from time to time. You should make it more spacious." After saying that, he left.
Li Shiyi was left alone, secretly impressed. 'Master is indeed extraordinary. He can actually calculate the fate between a newborn girl and himself.'
What he didn't know was that his younger sister hadn't been born yet.
Following the aura provided by the system, Ye Changge came to a place in the eastern region near the eastern sea.
There was a small city here called Zishan City.
Zishan City faced the sea and was surrounded by a bustling port.
Ye Changge changed his appearance and pretended to be an ordinary young man to investigate on the situation.
In front of a mansion, Ye Changge raised his head.
According to his investigation, there was a faint divine light reflected in the sky ten thousand meters away.
Although it was daytime, with Ye Changge's eyesight, he could still see the starlight high in the sky.
The gatekeepers and guards in front of the Jade Mansion looked at the young man who kept raising his head and lowering his head, wondering what he was up to.
If it were not for the simple and humble manner of the Yu family, they might have chased him away.
"One SSS Grade genius detected."
[ Name ] : None
[ Age ] : Not yet born
[ Innate bone ] : SSS level
[ Aptitude ] : SSS level
[ Cultivation ] : None
[ Talent ] : God Equipment Body, stars fall.
[ Affiliated faction ] : Star Dynasty
[ Remark ] : Star Mirror reincarnated body, expected to be born in half a year.
"Ding! Mission: Take in a disciple."
"Reward: Star-stepping Divine Walking technique."
"Mission duration: Two years."
Seeing this notification, Ye Changge once again felt that the system was peculiar.
Even without reincarnating, he was able to find out what it was. What did it even show? Name, none, age, none.
Furthermore, the note said that she would be born half a year later. The people in this world were also pregnant for ten months. Did the system predict that this third disciple who had yet to enter the sect would give birth prematurely?
"However, with the body of a divine artifact, I think this disciple's vitality will be very strong. The reincarnation of an emperor is probably even stronger than Li Shiyi."
"The fall of the stars sounds like a divine artifact's innate ability. After it turns into a human, it becomes an innate ability."
"Most importantly, if she accepts me as her master, her future will be even more limitless."
Having made up his mind, he walked up and said to the Jade mansion's gatekeeper, "I am a cultivator from the Hidden Edge Sect's Reclining Firewood Peak."
"I passed by your mansion and found that the auspicious star shone brightly and the Heavenly Star descended. I believe that there will be a new girl in your mansion who is fated to be my master and disciple. I have come to accept her as my disciple."
The Jade residence's gatekeeper was stunned by these words and instinctively did not believe them.
However, he saw that Ye Changge's expression was serious and did not have the slightest hint of humour.
Moreover, the Jade residence was a local prominent clan. Not everyone would dare to come and swindle. For a moment, he did not know what to do.
Seeing that he did not react, Ye Changge said, "Please go back and report to your family's manager. Tell him that Hidden Edge Sect's Ye Changge of Reclining Firewood Peak has come to take in a disciple."
The gatekeeper hesitated for a moment before a guard at the side whispered into his ear, "It's better to go in and report. If it's a swindler, just chase him out. If It's true, then please go in."
The gatekeeper nodded and asked Ye Changge to wait for a moment before turning around and running into the Jade mansion.
In the dining hall of the Jade mansion, the head of the Yu family, Yu Shoushan, his son, Yu Chao, and his daughter-in-law, Dong Linglong, were having a family chat after finishing their meal.
"I don't know why, but I've been dreaming of a beautiful star streaking across the sky at night. I don't know if it's a blessing or a curse,"dong Linglong said.
Yu Chao hurriedly comforted her, "Don't panic, my wife. Our Yu family is strict and has been doing good deeds for many generations. With the protection of the Jade Wave Sect and the Vast Sea Pavilion, there won't be any evil intruders."
"Tomorrow, when we hand over the goods with the Green Wave Sect, Chao'er, you can ask for two spirit talismans. Just in case."
Just as they were chatting, the gatekeeper came to ask for an audience.
"Master, a young master came to the door. He claimed to be a cultivator from the Hidden Edge Sect's Reclining Firewood Peak. He said that he passed by the Yu residence and found that the auspicious star was shining brightly and the Heavenly Star had descended. There will be a new young lady who will be his master and disciple."
Yu Chao frowned. "Linglong gave birth to Xiu Zhu two years ago, and the eldest son, Xiu Song, is also a boy. Linglong is not pregnant now, so how could there be a young lady in the Yu Family?"
It was Yu Shoushan who recalled what his daughter-in-law had just said and asked, "The auspicious star shone brightly? The Heavenly Star had descended? Is this related to the meteor dream that Linglong just mentioned?"
"It's not that magical. Father, I'm afraid that he's some swindler in the pugilistic world. Just give him some silver and he'll be fine."
Without coming to a conclusion, he thought about how his family was protected by the Green Wave Sect and the Vast Sea Pavilion. Even if there was a Heavenly Star descending, he would still have to join these two sects.
Thus, he asked the gatekeeper to take out some silver and wanted to get rid of Ye Changge.
Ye Changge, who was treated as a swindler, was not angry. He smiled faintly.
He took out a bottle of pills and handed it to the gatekeeper.
"Your young madam will soon be pregnant, and your unborn young miss will give birth prematurely in about half a year. Just in case, I will leave these pills behind."
"Remember to bring her to the Hidden Edge Sect's Reclining Firewood Peak to acknowledge her as a teacher after she is born."
Without waiting for the gatekeeper's reply, he disappeared without a trace.
The gatekeeper did not even know how Ye Changge left.
If not for the medicine bottle in his hand, the gatekeeper would have thought that everything was just an illusion and that no one had been before him.
He turned around and saw that the guards at the door were also staring at him with their mouths agape.
Knowing that he had met an expert, he quickly went back to make his report.
"Is it really as miraculous as he said? To know what will happen half a year later?"
The Yu family somewhat believed it and just in case, they kept the medicine away.
They also called the monks of the Bibo Sect and the Canghai Pavilion to investigate the situation.
