Luo Jie smiled and said: “Shier, get something to eat.”
Guo Shier took out a Rune Bottle.
Smiled and said: “This is a freshly squeezed fruit juice that I made. You should know this thing is good!"
Guo Shier thought about this in Qing Guan City where the fruits are abound. So he specifically collected a group of fruits and processed them with the Four Rune Purification Method. From this he produced a batch of high-quality fruit juice.
The Rune Bottles are amazing. The juices don’t go bad in there so you can pack a lot.
He took out three cups and poured in the freshly squeezed juice.
He said: “Master, give me an icicle.”
Luo Jie curiously asked: “What for the freshly squeezed juice? Here you go…… here is an icicle.”
He effortlessly conjured an icicle from his fingertips.
Guo Shier took the Icicles and crushed them into the cups.
Smiled and said: “Well, you can drink now.”
Ying Mo was very curious. He’s never seen this type of beverage.
Said: “The color looks inviting. Ok, I’ll try it …”
He drank a mouthful.
Smacked his lips, toasted and drunk everything in one go.
Said: “Wow this is so fucking good, one more"
Luo Jie also drank a mouthful.
Praised: “Great, sweet and sour… very good drink.
But his mind was not on it.
Luo Jie asked: “Ying Mo, who were you with before?
Ying Mo put down the cup and heaved a long sigh.
Said: “Old Timer, I was a formerly an Outer Door Disciple at the North Rune Sect.
Luo Jie nodded and said: “I have already seen the marks on your body. It is unique to us North Rune Sect.”
Guo Shier only now understand why Luo Jie would be confident. The reason being Ying Mo was originally from the North Rune Sect.
Ying Mo said: “Alas, the people I followed … died on the very northern wilderness.”
Luo Jie asked: “An Artificer Adept or Caster Adept? How did he die?"
There was a hint of sadness in Ying Mo’s eyes.
He said: “He's a very good Caster Adept, but a little too honest. We were ambushed by another team… we found a very rare Rune tree. It was the famous Exquisite Black Wood.
After this event another team befriended us. That team launched a sneak attack that night.
All my companions … were all slaughtered. I had diarrhea that day. When I got back, they’ve already run away,
Luo Jie asked: “Are they from the North Rune Sect?”
Ying Mo said: “Yes. Everyone was an Outer Door Disciple.”
Luo Jie's eyes flashed an ominous fierce light.
Ying Mo shook his head: “Old Timer that was more than 100 years ago. They’re all dead now.”
Luo Jie asked: “You killed them?”
Ying Mo nodded and said: “Ha! That’s for sure! I've become a wanderer over the grasslands for over a hundred years because of this."
Luo Jie surprised: “So this was the reason you came to the northern grassland? Brat, you're good!"
Guo Shier interposed: “Uncle Ying Mo, everyone on the grassland has nothing good to say about you."
Ying Mo smiled: “I am a Demon. Hahaha!
On the grasslands, I killed those who killed my companions. Just give me a chance, whoever it is. I’m going to kill them! Whether it’s a person or a team … Of course my reputation is bad. I don’t care.”
Guo Shier knew Ying Mo was keyed up.
Nodded and said: “Damn, those people do deserve to die,”
Ying Mo smiled: I’m used to it. Hahaha! Old Timer, I’m probably still on the North Rune Sect’s wanted list.
Luo Jie said: “When I return I'll cancel the wanted record!”
Ying Mo revealed an unexpected expression.
Asked: “Old Timer, you believed what I said?
Luo Jie smiled: “Just check it out. What about it? It's no big deal. Hmmmm. I’ve heard that before. Some scum who brought harm to the Sect. These people, if I were to meet them… I'll kill them.”
Ying Mo sighed: “The Outer Door competition is too intense. Is it still ok at the Inner Door?
Guo Shier nodded and said: “In the Inner Door we also have fights. But it's no big deal. After all, master is from the Inner Door. Hahaha! Before anyone can make trouble, they should consider it.”
Luo Jie said: “Ying Mo, you're already a Marked Warrior Grandmaster. Based on your strength, you have the ability to choose any person to follow. Do you have someone in mind?”
Ying Mo blankly stared. He looked at Luo Jie with a puzzled expression.
Smiled: “Old Timer, are you joking? No Rune Smith Master of Grandmaster Level would accept me. Hahaha! If Old Timer intentionally…”
Luo Jie smiled and glanced at Guo Shier.
Ying Mo is not stupid. He realized Luo Jie wanted him to follow Guo Shier. Ying Mo thought about this for a moment.
Said: “If Shier is willing … I am willing to follow. Alas Old Timer, I Just want a home. Shier is strong. He's even has the level of an Artificer Grandmaster. It’s worth my while to follow Shier.”
Ying Mo promised vibrantly. He was fed up with a lonely life alone. It was more than 100 years of suffering. He would not want to continue this kind of life. Taking advantage of this opportunity, it’s worthwhile to be a follower.
Although Guo Shier is young, his' strength is not to taken lightly. He's completely comparable to an adult.
Guo Shier's heart was pounding. He did not think Ying Mo would really agree.
“Thank you for the admiration Uncle Ying Mo I appreciate it. Although, I have not yet advanced to an Artificer Grandmaster.
I’m sure it won’t be long. I will be able to reach this height!"
He said in a heroic manner.
“That’s what I believe,” said Ying Mo.
I have not seen a child like this little Demon in my life.
Guo Shier was suddenly speechless.
Luo Jie laughed.
Said: “Shier, Ying Mo is a veteran. He is willing to follow you. You cannot neglect him, Ok?
I am responsible for Ying Mo's cultivating system. Later when you advanced to Artificer Grandmaster, you can take over.”
Ying Mo is overjoyed. The only worry in his mind is completely lifted. Marked Warrior Grandmasters are not accepted by just anyone. You should have the strength, but also have the financial resources.
A wandering Marked Warrior Grandmaster covets to follow a Grandmaster Level character, because they can help him go further.
Luo Jie stood up.
Loudly say: “Everybody come over, there’s one thing to announce!”
Everybody stopped what they're doing and one after another came along.
Huo Bao and the rest of the kids went to Guo Shier's side.
Huo Bao asked: “Shier, what’s with the Old Timer?
Guo Shier smiled and said: “Xiao-Bao, just Listen to it.”
Luo Jie said: “Brother Ying Mo has promised to follow Shier. That’s good news. Hahaha!"
Everybody was surprised. Especially the people who came with Ying Mo. They all rushed over his side and quickly inquired. These people are mostly wandering Marked Warrior Masters who are loners. Two of them have just advanced to a Marked Warrior Grandmaster.
Ying Mo yelled: “Fellow Brothers, I Ying Mo was originally from the North Rune Sect.
This time I was fortunate to get Old Timer Luo's invitation. Brothers, I also want to settle down, so I'm going to follow Shier. We have seen Shier's strength. He is worthy for me to follow!"
Guo Shier said: “Everyone, Uncle…”
The crowd quieted down.
“… to be able to have this honor. To be followed by the uncle Ying Mo, this is my luck.
I will treat Uncle Ying Mo as an elder and with respect! Uncle Ying Mo, after all we are family now! ”
Ying Mo's eyes glowed with tears. He did not expect Guo Shier would say that.
With A smile he said: “Ok! I Ying Mo, am home!"
Luo Jie did not let up.
Cried: “Luo Zhan, come over here.”
Luo Zhan came over.
Asked: “Old Timer, do you have any orders? ”
Luo Jie said: “You also advanced to Marked Warrior Grandmaster level.
You’re a part of our clan, but has never followed anyone. Are you willing to follow Shier?"
Luo Zhan is Luo clan's Marked Warrior Master, and did not follow anyone.
In this world, a Marked Warrior Master's best way out is to follow a Rune Smith Master or Artificer Master, followed by a Caster Master.
As for the clan's Marked Warrior Master, that would generally be awkward. Not only there would be countless tasks to be completed, but also you will not receive any cultivating system.
As for following a wandering Marked Warrior Master, there is nothing to discuss. Even eating is going to be a problem.
Luo Zhan froze for a moment. He has already followed and protected Guo Shier for some time. He found the little one very interesting and also admires the child’s ingenuity.
He then laughed.
Said: “That’s great. Shier, do you want uncle to follow you?
Guo Shier is so happy he's almost speechless
He cried joyfully: “Of course! Uncle can help me!”
He and Luo Zhan are very familiar with each other. He also liked Luo Zhan's calm demeanor.
Luo Zhan laughed: “Old timer, I promise to follow Shier. Shier and I hit it off. Hahaha!"
Everyone looked at Shier with unbelieving eyes. That child is incredible. He dares to accept two Marked Warrior Grandmasters. That would take a lot of courage.
Marked Warrior Grandmasters have a high upkeep. The owner is not only responsible for their food and shelter but also their cultivating system. They have to take care of everything.
Luo Jie said: “This time Xiao Feng and Luo Jing also advanced. Both of you are clan-trained. Now that you have advanced I'll give you a reward. Are you two willing to follow me? Hahaha!"
The Old Timer's followers are so many. But there's much more Marked Warrior Masters within the clan. Xiao Feng and Luo Jing are the clan's Marked Warrior Masters that are not part of any retinue. Their position within the clan is just so so. But once they follow Luo Jie, their clan status will be greatly improve.
The two were overjoyed.
Said: “Old Timer, we are willing!”
Luo Jie nodded.
Said: “This is your luck, but it's also my blessing. Later Da-Shan will assign you both a task.
Qi Nan Shan is Luo Jie's Chief Marked Warrior Master; he is responsible for the management of the affairs around him.
Luo Jie said to Ying Mo's friends: “It should be clear to everyone, I am North Rune Sect's Inner Door Artificer Grandmaster Luo Jie. On behalf of the Luo clan, I invite Ying Mo's friends to join.
It's just an invitation. If unwilling, I’m not going to force anyone."
It is normal to send such an invitation, especially an invitation from an Artificer Grandmaster. Anyone will take this seriously.
For Ying Mo's friends a clan's invitation is not very attractive. This is different from following a patron. Clan affairs are numerous. The competition is also more intense. However a Marked Warrior Grandmaster would receive better offerings to enter a clan.
Several Marked Warrior Masters and the two newly advanced Marked Warrior Grandmasters politely refused. But a few Marked Warrior Masters agreed to join.
Luo Jie reluctantly said: “I hope that when everybody goes out, you'll keep the secret about this altar.
Once you spread it, next time you may not have the ability to come … everyone should understand.
Xiao Feng & Luo Jing - Originally part of Luo Zhan's group of Marked Warrior Masters.
