Ye Chen ran to Hengyue Sect in a breath after he left the mountains behind the sect.
The sun already rose now.
Absorbing the essence between the heavens and the earth, the disciples were confused to see embarrassed Ye Chen.
"Thank goodness, she did not recognize me just now." Ignoring the peculiar looks, Ye Chen slowed down and glimpsed at the mountains behind the sect. He was still frightened as if lingering in front the gate of the hell.
Ye Chen calmed down after a long time.
"She did not recognize me?"
"Is she the same girl whom I spent one night with?"
"That is impossible. The two look exactly the same."
Ye Chen mumbled all the way. If the girl he had sex with that night was also in Hengyue Sect, he had to leave here. But if the girl he encountered today looked like the one he made love with, then he did not need to consider so much.
"I did not go inside. I did not. I just stood outside the gate of the spirit mountains." A familiar voice interrupted Ye Chen's thought and noisy reproach was heard subsequently.
"Little bastard, you are still lying."
"You don't behave yourself and stay at the foot of the mountains, but come to steal things."
"You forget your identity."
"Hu Wa." Ye Chen saw the familiar shadow from afar. Indeed, it was Hu Wa.
Now, a group of disciples circled him, some scolded him, some mocked him and the others cursed him. As his body curled up, Hu Wa was black and blue, and he did not dare to raise his head like a culprit committing serious crimes.
"I did not go up, just watched outside the gate." Bending his head, Hu Wa was wronged and sobbed.
"You dare to quibble. Do you want us to beat you again?" A ferocious disciple lifted his palm.
But before he put it down, his arm was grabbed by a hand.
"Are you courting death?" Ye Chen asked gruffly. He treated Hu Wa as his family and could not bear to see that he was bullied.
The disciples surrounding Hu Wa stepped back when they saw Ye Chen.
Albeit an intern disciple, Ye Chen was alien. Zhao Long from Diyang Peak and Wei Yang from Tianyang Peak were defeated by him, which was a warning for other disciples.
"Giving up absorbing the essence of the heavens and the earth, you guys bully a child without any cultivation base. How ridiculous you are!" Ye Chen looked around and sneered, "You can fight with me if you dare to."
The disciples gathered together quickly afterwards.
"It is he who disobeyed sect regulations first." Relying upon their numerical strength, a disciple in white called Xu Ming led the group and smiled coldly.
"The rule that nobody could climb up the spirit mountains except the disciples is acknowledged. But the little bastard named Hu Wa comes up to the mountains secretively. Who knows whether he comes here to steal things or not. "
Ye Chen heard about the regulation before, with his eyebrows wrinkling.
Even though Hu Wa lived at the foot of the spirit mountains, he did not belong to Hengyue Sect, but was the adopted grandson of Zhang Fengnian, who was still a member of the sect albeit banished.
"I did not." As tears tumbled down on his face, Hu Wa explained, "I just stood outside of the gate, and did not go inside. They dragged me there."
Hearing Hu Wa's answer, Ye Chen flicked a cold look at the disciples.
"Little bastard, you dare to lie." Xu Ming blamed Hu Wa and yelled, "I will crack your legs if you continue to lie."
Ye Chen unsheathed Tianque Sword.
"I would like to see whether you dare or not." He cast a cold look at Xu Ming.
"Do you want to bully the weak in daytime?" Xu Ming shouted.
His roar attracted more people to surround and watch.
