Chapter 29 - Be Ruthless And Hide Your Trump Card Well
"Come back, quickly!"
The members of the Myriad Swords gate had disappeared without a trace after being killed by a single sword strike. Li Shiyi was still lamenting about how powerful his master was when he suddenly heard his master's voice.
For some reason, Li Shiyi panicked!
Oh no, did he stand out too much and displease his master?
With this thought in mind, Li Shiyi bowed to Sect Leader Ding and the other elders, "This matter has been settled. There are still important matters on Reclining Firewood Peak. I will take my leave now!"
Without waiting for Sect Leader Ding and the others to reply, Li Shiyi quickly dashed to the door and flew out on his sword.
Sect Leader Ding was still immersed in the power of the sword from just now. He did not even have time to react before Li Shiyi vanished.
"That kid ran so fast. What important matters could he have at Reclining Firewood Peak?"
"Haha, I think he's afraid that Sect Leader and chief Qing Cang will attempt to poach him as a disciple again. He fled."
"What are you saying? A powerful sword genius like him should come to my place to cultivate. His Reclining Firewood Peak doesn't have any sword cultivator inheritance."
After an elder said that, the surrounding people all quietened down and looked at him strangely.
"Previously, Shu Ling borrowed a sword from the direction of reclining salary peak. Now, Li Shiyi is also the disciple of reclining salary peak, and the distance between Yunxiao Peak and reclining salary peak is also so close. You still haven't realized who that Great Grandmaster of Sword Arts is?"
When the elder heard the questions around him, he was stunned for a moment and took a deep breath.
"Hiss! It turns out that that brat Ye Changge, had hidden his capabilities so well!"
When Sect Leader Ding heard this, he really despised him.
How could this guy be so stupid?!
Just like when they were apprenticed together, Sect Leader Ding raised his hand and slapped the back of the Elder's head.
"Stupid! Ye Changge is just a junior. He has only cultivated for less than ten years. How could he have such powerful sword cultivation strength? !"
"What sect are we? Hidden Edge sect! Hidden Edge sect has nine lineages. Each of them is different, and each of them has their own foundation!"
"It doesn't really fit our sect's style to hide a great grandmaster of the way of the sword on Reclining Firewood Peak!"
The elders at the side chimed in, "You actually suspected Ye Changge to be that Grandmaster of the way of the sword. Your brain is still as useless as ever!"
Li Shiyi had hurried back to Reclining Firewood Peak. He went directly to Cheng Deyin mysterious cave heaven and met Ye Changge.
"Let me ask you, do you know why I asked you to come back?"
"I disobeyed my master's order and acted too boldly! I admit my mistake, please punish me, Master!"
Seeing Li Shiyi bow his head and admit his mistake, Ye Changge became even angrier.
"Let me ask you, why did you take out the 'Taiqing sword truth' to suppress the moon-slaying sword technique in the end?"
"Well, the Myriad Swords gate was too proud. The sword technique they took out couldn't even compare to the sword truth that you wrote for yourself, Master."
"The others had already decided to run away, and you couldn't stop them at that time. What was the point of doing this? Other than revealing your trump card, what else was there to do?"
"Just for a moment of anger? You revealed all your trump cards?"
"You have to be ruthless. You have already fallen out with the other side, so just kill them all. Later, the other side drew a jade sword, and you obviously couldn't touch them. Why were you still showing your trump cards?"
"Scram, go clean up Reclining Firewood Peak for me!"
Li Shiyi came to realize his faults and blushed. Compared to his master, he was still too young and volatile.
"Yes! Your disciple knows his mistake!"
Then, Li Shiyi quickly left.
In the main branch of the Hidden Edge Sect, Sect Master Ding and Abbot Qing Cang were sitting in the room.
Abbot Qing Cang asked his new female disciple, "Leng Yu, have you sent the moon-slaying sword technique and cloud-slaying sword technique to Reclining Firewood Peak?"
"Yes, your disciple has already sent them over."
"I guess Jianyi is practicing his sword techniques seriously?"
A strange look flashed across Yue Lengyu's face. "When your disciple went, senior brother Li was using a broom to clean the Reclining Firewood Peak seriously."
"Clean? When he uses sword techniques, would he not stir up the wind and clean the dust easily?"
"Your disciple doesn't know."
Abbot Qing Cang and Sect Master Ding looked at each other in dismay. The two of them muttered in their hearts at the same time.
"What kind of background does this Reclining Firewood Peak have? The most important thing for Li Shiyi was to clean it up?"
With a wave of his hand, Abbot Qing Cang asked Yue Lengyu to leave.
"This disciple will take her leave."
Yue Lengyu left the room, quickly walked out and returned to her own residence. She took out a scroll and started drawing quickly.
The drawings were of Ye Changge and Li Shiyi.
Then, she started to write a letter.
"Eleven joined the Hidden Edge Sect for a few months. After some investigation, he discovered that there were all sorts of extraordinary things about Reclining Firewood Peak
"Many crises and changes were related to Reclining Firewood Peak. Several of its disciples were very special.
"Chief Ye Changge hid his powers quite well. Disciple Li Shiyi also seemed to want to hide some aspects of himself. Indeed, he showed extraordinary things because of the changes undergone there.
"Eleven suspects that Reclining Firewood Peak is the hidden branch of the Hidden Edge Sect. It might be an important backup plan of the Hidden Edge Sect.
"Next, we'll think of a way to start from Li Shiyi and get close to Reclining Firewood to gather information."
After keeping the letter and the painting scroll, Yue Lengyu took out a skull. After casting a spell, the skull bit on the envelope and turned into black smoke before dissipating.
Reclining Firewood Peak.
Ye Changge looked at the stars in the sky and silently pondered.
As the Sacred Place of the way of the sword, the actions of the Myriad Swords Gate coming over to ask for the colorful Qi swords for no reason seemed too strange.
First of all, as the powerful Sacred Place, it was impossible for them to ask for the colorful sword just because of their hobby of collecting.
Second, Ye Changge had seen the moon-slaying sword technique. Although it was far from the sword technique provided by the system, it was indeed a very powerful sword technique.
Third, the three people they sent, Chang Jian, Stone Sword, and heart sword, were all extraordinary. It was obvious that they were the people who had obtained the top-tier heritage of the Myriad Swords Gate.
They had sent these three people here with treasures that could allow them to return to the sect quickly.
The things they needed were very important, and they did not want to attract too much suspicion and prying eyes from other factions. Hence, the top-tier experts didn't appear.
"What exactly is a colorful qi sword? If I had known earlier, I wouldn't have needed to use so much strength. Leaving a leader behind might have allowed me to obtain some information."
"However, if we let them live for too long and the 'truth of the Taiqing sword principle is already exposed and the Myriad Swords gate may have the means to quickly pass on important information. We can only kill them as soon as possible."
Once again feeling that Li Shiyi had made a foolish mistake, Ye Changge sent a long-distance message over, "Clean up Reclining Firewood Peak again tomorrow morning!"
Li Shiyi, who did not know what mistake he had made, nodded seriously and planned to clean up Reclining Firewood Peak every day.
This was definitely something that his master had intentionally done. Perhaps it contained some kind of wondrous cultivation theory.
"Could it be that cleaning is also a way of practicing the sword?"
"Oh right, eldest senior brother is cultivating for mortal matters. He fetches water, cuts firewood, and cooks. This must be the teachings of master. I understand!"
From then on, there was a strange rumor in the Hidden Edge Sect. There was a strange way of cultivating on Reclining Firewood Peak. Eldest disciples He Xiuxing and Li Shiyi loved to do housework.
Therefore, the disciples who saw Li Shiyi doing chores began to do chores.
The servant disciples were very grateful to Reclining Firewood Peak.
