Chapter 18 - Avoiding The Competition And Quietly Becoming A Disciple
A few more months passed.
The miss of the Jade mansion was named Yu Tianxing. She had bright eyes, as well as teeth, and she was an absolute beauty.
Although she was young, she possessed a strange majestic quality. Whenever she sat quietly in the courtyard, the servants who passed by would not dare to speak loudly.
Meanwhile, the Green Wave Sect and the Vast Sea Pavilion's determination to accept disciples had also become stronger.
On this day, Yu Chao and Yu Shoushan had a secret discussion in the study.
"Right now, both the Green Wave Sect and the Vast Sea Pavilion have their eyes on us. They want to accept Tianxing as a disciple. As such, our family's business has also improved quite a bit."
"However, Tianxing is destined to become a disciple of the Hidden Edge Sect. If they were to find out about this situation, I'm afraid that we would be suppressed. Moreover, the two great sects would not agree either. What should we do?"
Hearing Yu Chao's frustrated voice, Yu Shoushan did not reply immediately.
He raised his head and looked at the ancestral teachings that hung on the wall.
"Let's secretly sell our assets and go to the Hidden Edge Sect."
Yu Chao was stunned by Yu Shoushan's words.
"Tianxing is destined to be extraordinary. Now, both the Green Wave Sect and the Vast Ocean Pavilion are willing to curry favor with our family.
"This has never happened before. The Yu family has been operating in Zishan City for hundreds of years. Although we have been on good terms with the two factions for generations, everyone knows that we are only relying on them.
"This further shows how important and extraordinary Tianxing is. The Hidden Edge Sect's expert had already predicted this previously and left behind medicinal pills to save Linglong and Tianxing.
"His strength is much stronger than that of the Vast Sea Pavilion. If we were to go to the Hidden Edge Sect and make Tianxing acknowledge him as her master, we would be able to hide for a hundred years at most. Once Tianxing grows up, we won't have to worry about the Yu family not flourishing!
"We can still place our hopes on that expert to sit down with us. This is also a chance and source of fortune for us."
Yu Chao himself did not have such confidence in Yu Tianxing, but even so, he realized that his father's expectations were very high.
Filled with pride, Yu Chao said, "Let's do it!"
A few months later, the Yu family decided to give up after realizing that it would not be good to sell off their fixed assets under the surveillance of the two factions.
They bought a high-grade airship at a high price, a secret array treasure that concealed part of their heavenly secrets, and other items. Then, they took the precious treasures that could be stored with the family and any other property that could be taken away before they quietly set off.
At the same time, Ye Changge of the Hidden Edge Sect was at a critical juncture.
He was about to enter the Saint Realm.
After years of cultivation, Ye Changge had accumulated terrifying power.
It was to the extent that his foundation was too solid. Previously, he had only been at the Crossing Calamity Stage, so he had easily killed the Ghost Lord who had also been at the Crossing Calamity Stage.
Under the cave heaven's cover, Ye Changge was ready to communicate with Heaven and Earth and trigger the Thunder Tribulation.
Dark clouds covered the sky, and tribulation clouds quickly gathered.
A powerful pressure suddenly rained down.
At the center of the Thunder Tribulation, a strange eye opened!
The eye was a black hurricane that was spinning intensely, and the whites of the "eye" were flickering lightning bolts.
Ye Changge did not plan on waiting for the lightning to strike him.
He activated the Indestructible Golden Body technique, raised his palm, and waved it fiercely.
A tribulation cloud seemed to be attracted by something and quickly shrank. At the same time, it flew toward the ground, and Ye Changge grabbed it.
"The universe in my sleeve, and Buddha in my palm. This move of mine is called Universe in the Palm."
After he successfully advanced to the third level, Ye Changge played with the tribulation cloud and closed his eyes to comprehend a new realm.
He was already able to see a thread of heavenly secrets at the Entry Saint Realm.
Suddenly, he felt something and looked in the direction of Zishan City.
He gazed past the void and saw a flying spirit ship. The dozens of people on it were filled with panic. A few waves of people were chasing after them.
He also saw Yu Shoushan, Yu Chao, and the others. In the end, his attention fell on a little girl.
"This is my disciple who has yet to enter the sect?"
Ye Changge, who had understood the situation, looked at the tribulation cloud in his hand and flung it.
Thousands of miles away, the experts of the Vast Sea Pavilion who were chasing after them were filled with hatred.
As one of the ten great sects, the experts of the Vast Sea Pavilion never thought that the Yu family would reject their goodwill.
They also never thought that the family would leave without saying goodbye.
"How can the person that our Vast Sea Pavilion has its eyes on be allowed to join another sect? Yu Shoushan, you're really something! You better stop!"
As he spoke, he increased his speed and the sound of waves could be heard from afar.
Suddenly, a strong gust of wind blew over, and a strange black figure appeared.
Upon closer look, all the pursuers trembled in fear.
That was actually a tribulation cloud? Such a powerful tribulation cloud was so close to them.
Before they could react, the Thunder Tribulation was activated.
In an instant, bright lightning engulfed everyone.
The Yu family members on the airship stared at the scene in disbelief.
"What's going on? Why did the Thunder Tribulation suddenly appear?"
Yu Chao had a shocked expression, but something seemed to occur to him, and he looked at Yu Shoushan, "Father, could it be that person who has acted?"
"Regardless of whether it was that person who made the move or not, the problem has already been solved. Let's hurry to the Hidden Edge Sect."
After they made a decision and calmed down, the Yu family's airship started to move again.
Ye Changge called Li Shiyi over and said, "Clean up that small bamboo house that was built half a year ago. Your junior sister will be here soon."
Li Shiyi, who had agreed, began to clean up the house as he tried to guess what his junior sister was like.
Not long after, the Yu family arrived at Faya City. After settling down there, Yu Shoushan, Yu Chao, and his wife brought Yu Tianxing to pay their respects to the master.
The disciples guarding the mountain felt that it was a little strange. Why had the Hidden Edge Sect, which had never participated in sect affairs, become more active recently?
Furthermore, the girl who wanted to pay their respects to their master seemed to be from Zishan City. It was a city close to the Vast Sea Pavilion, so why had she come to such a faraway place.
Reclining Firewood Peak.
When the members of the Yu family saw Ye Changge, they first apologized to him. "Previously, we didn't recognize a true immortal because we didn't believe what you said, Elder Immortal. We came here to apologize."
Yu Linglong also said, "Thank you, Elder Immortal for leaving the immortal pill and saving my daughter's life as well as mine."
Nodding, Ye Changge did not say anything else and turned his gaze to Yu Tianxing.
"Little one, you and I are fated to meet. Are you willing to do acknowledge me as your master?"
"Quick, kowtow and bow to the immortal elder!"Yu Chao anxiously pulled his daughter over and asked her to kowtow to Ye Changge.
The little girl obediently walked forward and kowtowed. "Master, please accept this kowtow from this disciple of yours!"
As she kowtowed, a strange phenomenon unfolded.
The sunlight quickly disappeared, and the stars in the sky shone brightly.
The disciples of the Hidden Edge Sect, who were outside, stared at the sky in shock. They realized that the stars were beginning to move.
A heavy pressure once again pressed down on the mountain.
"What's happening? Is this a reversal of day and night? Who's making a move?"
"This isn't a reversal of day and night. It's the changing of the stars in the sky."
"What is happening to our Hidden Edge Sect today? Why are there such changes and why is there another Thunder Tribulation?"
The heavens were filled with killing intent!
Yu Tianxing had been an emperor in her previous life, and her true body was the divine weapon, the Heavenly Star Mirror. Her existence had been acknowledged by the Heavenly Dao's will of the mortal world.
Ye Changge, who was still in the Entry Saint Realm, could not accept her kowtow.
The Heavenly Dao did not allow it!
Li Shiyi asked in surprise, "Master, what's happening?"
"Your junior sister is of special status. The Heavenly Dao does not allow her to acknowledge me as her master."
Thinking of the two sects that wanted to accept Yu Tianxing as their disciple, Ye Changge smiled. "Fortunately, they didn't accept Yu Tianxing. Otherwise, I'm afraid they would have been eliminated from the eastern region."
The members of the Yu family were completely flustered at this point. The might of the heavens was vast and unstoppable.
Looking at the master and disciple who were chatting cheerfully, Yu Shoushan asked in fear, "Immortal, what should we do?"
"It's fine, we will just block it."
"Wh-What? How do we block it?"
The Yu family members, who could not understand what was going on, did not know what to say.
Ye Changge rushed underground and awakened the Heavenly Mortal Stone Tablet.
"Senior, you should block the killing intent from the heavens. If I were to make a move, I would only be able to shatter the constellations. I'm afraid that it will cause too much damage to the Heavenly Mortal World's Heavenly Dao."
If the members of the Yu family had heard what Ye Changge said, what kind of reaction would they have had?
The stone tablet flickered and suddenly emanated a bright light. It stopped ten thousand meters above the Hidden Edge Sect in the sky.
Waves of magical fluctuations were emitted as if the tablet was communicating with the Heavenly Dao. Loud bangs continued to ring out, and the starlight shone brilliantly.
After a few dozen breaths, the stars in the sky returned to their original positions. The sunlight gradually brightened, and everything returned to normal.
The disciples of the Hidden Edge Sect, who had been trained to handle a series of disasters and huge changes in recent years, did not wait for the sect leader's instructions. They proceeded to take action on their own.
They increased the intensity of their patrols and went to the front of the main hall to wait for information to make arrangements for the aftermath.
As for what exactly happened and why there were such drastic changes, the disciples were not concerned about those things.
"Don't ask, just ask about the foundation of the sect, the sect's secret."
Only the elders in leadership positions, the sect leader, and the first seats were in a terrible state of confusion.
