Claim to be an orphan's family!
It was a foolproof plan. After all, the little girl is only a toddler. Even if she does not play along or denies the claim, how convincing would her words be? Who would listen to her?
Proof? Evidence? Ming Yue Sect could produce hard evidence in a blink of an eye to show that Yin is a daughter of a sect disciple sent on a faraway mission. Who would dare question? Who would dare investigate the truth?
Even if the Ye Clan wants, they would dare not. After all, the current Ye Sect is in a very delicate situation right now. If Ye Clan offends the Ming Yue Sect, it would be easy to see the future of the once-hegemon of the Leaf City.
The two Great Elders of Ming Yue Sect could be said to be playing dirty, but who among those who have lived for so long not a cunning, old fox? Both Zhu Wei and Yan Yu refused to believe that Ye Mo would send such a precious "gift" to their foo
"Aaah! Grandpa!"A pitiful, heartbreaking little girl's cry rang out from inside the hot springs. Patriarch Shangguan Ke, and the Great Elders Zhu Wei and Yan Yu, along with the others waiting outside, could not help but be stunned.Yin continued to wail. "A-Auntie! Auntie needs help! Quick, help us!"If the maid was awake, she would have puked out blood and fainted once more in anger.She's only fourteen years old! Young, fresh fourteen! Which part of her is an 'auntie'?!In less than a breath's time, the door had been blasted open and everyone ran inside the hot springs, including the guards. Multiple divine senses swept out inside and outside, fearing the appearance of a powerful intruder.'Niu'er' is now a precious member of the Ming Yue Sect, a favored daughter of Heaven and the Saintess-potential that would lead the entire branch to greatness in the fut
"I hate you!!!"Those three words echoed loudly within the empty hallways leading to Zhu Wei's medicinal garden. Yin even tried to push and wriggle herself out Shangguan Ke's arms, even managing to land the soles of her feet on his bearded face. On his left cheek, there was a slightly wet tiny footprint.For a second, the three old men were too astounded to move.Audacious!Completely audacious!A little mortal kid was kicking the face of Ming Yue Sect's exalted Patriarch! And it looked like she did not care a wit that she's trampling on her own grandfather!How dirty are a person's feet? What do they represent? If news were to get around, even if she's supposed to be his only descendant, it would have been completely a humiliation to him and the sect! He would become the laughing stock of Leaf City for years!Shangguan Ke was angered to
Being inside the pocket dimension was like being inside a smaller version of the real world. Just by standing in place, the lands seemed endless. It had its own sky, its own sun, its own water source and its own stable system of heaven and earth qi circulation.It could even be said that if one has enough resources, he or she could wish to live inside a pocket dimension in isolation, there would be no issues at all. This small world was completely self-sufficient.In fact, the heaven and earth qi inside was much, much stronger than outside. An ordinary cultivator was likely to cultivate twice as fast inside, and if he was supported by heavenly cultivation dan and herbs, it could even come close to thrice as fast.The Ming Yue Sect in Leaf City might be just a branch, but still, they had enough resources to invite a powerful space cultivator to create a pocket dimension for Great Elder Zhu Wei. Just from this, the vast we
In a courtyard of Leaf City's Ming Yue Sect. It had been more than half a day since the sun had risen from the east. Now, it was already in the early afternoon. Ye Mo had been waiting for several double-hours, yet there was still no news regarding Little Yin's treatment. To say he was worried sick would be an understatement. He had been pacing back and forth, unable to rest, the moment the elder assigned to assist him brought him to a guest courtyard to stay the night. "Why aren't they telling me any news?" Ye Mo, who refused to leave yet was refused to see Little Yin, was relegated to one of the spacious courtyards prepared to receive important guests. As the Ming Yue Sect occupied a mountain range in the outskirts of Leaf City, they had hundreds of available pavilions and courtyards to be used as housing and accommodation. The size of their territory was only slightly
As soon as she went into her opening sword stance, Zhi Ruo no longer looked like an elegant and fragile princess.Zhi Ruo became a soft sword. She might be a woman in appearance, yet she was also a sword.Sharp. Swift. Agile... Heartless!Yes, she was heartless!She was a woman who loved the sword and the sword alone.She was a girl initially abandoned by all. Her mother had died at childbirth, not that her mother was from any great family to start with. Thus, she had no support and was left to fend off the internal scheming within her clan on her own. If not for Zhi Ruo's superior talent and hard work, she would have been just like any of her father's daughters from a concubine... a mere political pawn without a say about her future.Yes, she is a proud woman. It was because she paved her own bloody path to where she's standing right now! She deserved to be
A few minutes ago, inside Great Elder Zhu Wei's pocket dimensionUnder Yin's constant badgering, the female disciple called Li'er finally could no longer bear it. She was an alchemist in the first place and she was well-known for her soft heart. With the Patriarch giving her a subtle signal of approval, she gritted her teeth and handed Yin several ripe fruits from the nearest tree for her to snack on."What a good, tasty pear!" Yin exclaimed as each bite caused juice to run down her chin. "So good! I feel like I should be eating this as dessert every after meal."Hearing her words, both Shangguan Ke and Li'er nearly puked blood.This is a Red-Veined Holy Golden Fruit, okay?! What were you expecting? Every after meal? Could you afford it? Could your Grandpa Shangguan afford it? Could Great Elder Zhu afford it? F*ck, even this whole branch of Ming Yue Sect could not afford such luxurious treatment!
20 - I'm Just Getting Back What is Mine How could a porky toddler with a weak, injured body manage to sneak out from the divine sense of a hundred-odd-old fogey with a cultivation base on the peak of the Nascent Divinity? How did she slip out from the radar of a cultivator when she's just a mortal who had not even a wisp of spiritual qi cultivated inside her body? How?! Obviously, it's because... It's because... She is Yin! Even just a fragment of a soul, she is still Yin! She's the daughter of Primordial Chaos! The much loved and hated—well, more on the hated part— existence from the long-destroyed Land of Celestial Deities! As one of the first existences, how could she not know how to maneuver around her father's heavenly edicts? How could she not find the loop
21 - Operation Ice AgeGreat Elder Zhu Wei’s pocket dimension had completely turned into a white world, like those lands in the desolate north that were blanketed by ice and snow, covered by gloom and silence, and filled with a raging tempest of pure yin qi.Inside, everything was frozen.The plants, the ground, the air... and the people.Triggered by Yin's divine consciousness, all heavenly treasures and precious herbs that contained yin qi self-detonated. Their spiritual energies dissolved into their purest essence form, and the effect was not simply one yin qi plus one yin qi makes two yin qi. No, the qi they contained were multiplied. The indirect energy alone tore apart the edges of the pocket dimension, causing its space to become unstable, inevitably producing void
