The breeze blew by, and the scene was quiet.
After a long while of silence, Elder Han of the Wuxin Clan finally took a deep breath and said, “The Tianyun Divine Thunder Technique really lives up to its name, and the successor of the Tianyun Clan is no ordinary person.”
At this moment, he had already shifted all his attention to Chen Chen, the newly promoted successor of the Tianyun Clan.
Since Duan Bing could qualify to cultivate the Supreme Wang Qing Dao, he definitely was one of the elites of the Wuxin Clan.
There were few in the eight clans in the North who could qualify to spar with Duan Bing, let alone defeat him.
Hence, it seemed that the successor of the Tianyun Clan was not normal…
“What’s your name!”
Duan Bing, who was far away, stood up, wiped away the blood from the corners of his mouth, and looked at Chen Chen indignantly.
“Chen Chen of the Tianyun Clan.”
After answering indifferently, Chen Chen didn’t continue to speak.
In front of the outsiders, he, the successor, needed to maintain his poise and bearing, and maintain his image of being aloof.
Although he did not look behind him, he could sense the gazes of admiration that were being cast at him.
They were all cast from the female disciples of the Tianyun Clan! Such made him feel a little delighted.
‘This damn charm… really can’t be tamed!’
“I shall remember my defeat today! I’ll definitely defeat you in the future!”
While Duan Bing taunted Chen Chen and issued threats, Chen Chen was busy getting amused by his own thoughts.
“System, let me ask you, is there any female disciple who has a crush on me within 30 meters nearby?”
“Yes, there are a total of 18. There is one girl 3 meters behind… another one 7 meters to the left behind you…”
After listening to the system’s reply, Chen Chen suddenly thought of something and replied to Duan Bing faintly.
Duan Bing returned to the spot behind Elder Han sulkily.
The fact that Chen Chen did not even take his words to heart was the reason for his frustration.
“Congratulations, Senior Brother Xiao, you’ve found yourself a good disciple.”
Elder Han said with an insincere smile.
Although Chen Chen had a Postnatal Thunder Spirit body and was very strong, he was still just going through foundation building after all.
At the Foundation Establishment realm, he would not be able to create much of a stir.
The more powerful Chen Chen was, the more he would be valued by Xiao Wuyou.
It would be more meaningful for someone who was valued by Xiao Wuyou, to go to the capital.
“We’ve embarrassed ourselves in front of you, Senior Brother Zhao.” Xiao Wuyou said coldly.
Seeing that Xiao Wuyou was already furious, Elder Han felt that there was no need to continue testing him.
According to the reports from his snitches, the Tianyun Clan had been behaving properly. Hence, he ought to focus more attention on the few sects that had been unruly.
Thinking of this, he smiled and responded, “Since Senior Brother Xiao does not welcome us, we will just leave. The Wuxin Clan is not some unreasonable clan. Your successor can bring one Golden Core Elder and two disciples along with him. Accommodation is provided.”
“Elder Zhao of our sect will come along. As for the two disciples…”
At this point, Xiao Wuyou slipped into hesitation.
This trip was akin to a trip to the dragon’s lair as it was extremely dangerous. Chen Chen, the powerful successor, might be in danger even under the escort of a powerful expert at the Golden Core realm, let alone other disciples.
If they followed Chen Chen to the capital, they would be on the brink of death!
Xiao Wuyou was not a ruthless person. He could not bear to send even the weakest disciples on a path to death.
Just as he was hesitating, a voice suddenly sounded from the crowd.
“Big brother! I’ll go with you!”
After speaking, Zhang Ji made his way out of the crowd and stood beside Chen Chen.
The Alchemy Elder who was near the two, frantically winked at his disciple, Zhang Ji, but the latter ignored the hint.
Looking at Zhang Ji who had a solemn expression, Chen Chen patted his shoulder and said softly, “Good brother!”
Zhang Ji immediately smiled when he saw that Chen Chen did not refuse.
‘Big brother is indeed Big Brother. Not only does he understand me, but he’s also not shy at all.’
However, he didn’t expect to hear screaming from the inner and outer clan disciples not far away, as soon as he stood up.
“Big brother! I’ll go with you!”
“Successor! I’ll go with you! I’ll take care of everything and warm your bed too!”
“Successor! I have a low status of cultivation but I am very diligent! I know that I can’t be an expert until I’ve suffered and endured hardships!”
Chen Chen was touched to see his fellow disciples competing to tag along with him.
‘Doesn’t this group of fools know that this trip is very dangerous?’
It seemed that he had spread and instilled too much positivity in the disciples during this period of time, so much that they had lost a sense of their own strengths.
Watching them with a complicated gaze, Xiao Wuyou was heartened. He could imagine how the Tianyun Clan would prosper once he retired and Chen Chen took over as the clan master.
Unfortunately, time waits for no one.
‘If only the Tianyun Clan was given another ten years.’
After sighing in his heart, Xiao Wuyou looked at Chen Chen.
“Disciple, since everyone is willing to go to the capital with you, choose a candidate yourself.”
Chen Chen felt a little helpless. If possible, he would have just brought Zhang Ji along. He didn’t see a need in bringing another disciple.
However, when he saw the look on Elder Han’s face, he felt compelled to bring another.
“Successor! Take me!”
Staring at the sincere faces, Chen Chen fell into a state of dilemma.
At this moment, the gigantic black boat above them slowly descended and stopped in front of the Tianyun Clan’s entrance.
There were six people standing silently on the edge of the deck, watching the scene with cold gazes.
“I’ve seen that woman wearing the black veil before. She’s You Lanxin, the successor of the Youshui Clan!”
“Then the other five should be the successors of the other sects!”
A few inner clan disciples whispered among themselves while looking at the six successors longingly.
Compared to ordinary disciples, this group was much more sophisticated and domineering.
The difference between them was clear.
Once the elite successors of the 36 clans stood together at the capital, wouldn’t they form a majestic view?
They probably wouldn’t dare to breathe at all.
Thinking of this, many disciples who were less competent could not help but feel weak.
They were not afraid of danger. Instead, they were feeling the fear of not being able to manage such a scene.
Even Xiao Wuyou couldn’t help but be worried… Although Chen Chen was very competent, he was ultimately not experienced in attending grand events.
Moments later, Zhao Xiaoya and a few inner clan disciples who were going through foundation building were the only ones left who dared to follow Chen Chen to the event.
Chen Chen glanced at Zhao Xiaoya, whose face was full of expectation.
However, Chen Chen eventually looked away at the others, and finally fixed his eyes on Sun Tiangang smilingly.
“Junior Brother Sun, we will be traveling far for this trip and the future is uncertain, the status of cultivation of the other Junior Sisters and Junior Brothers is not high enough, but you…”
Sun Tiangang was surprised to hear his words. He would have never expected to be chosen by Chen Chen.
Logically speaking, as the first person to challenge Chen Chen, he had always thought that he was Chen Chen’s rival.
However, now it seemed that he had been over-thinking. Who would bring their nemesis along on a trip?
‘Could it be that Chen Chen had treated me as an underling all along?’
At this moment, Sun Tiangang felt a bit confused.
On the other hand, Chen Chen glanced at the six people standing on the flying boat with a frivolous gaze. He then turned around and asked, “In the clan, you’re the only disciple whose status of cultivation is second only to me. Let me ask you, do you dare to follow me to the capital to take a look at the elites of the other clans in the State of Jin, and find out what is so different about them compared to ordinary people?”
Hearing these words, Sun Tiangang was instantly filled with excitement as he subconsciously exclaimed, “What’s there to be afraid of!?”
