Chapter 89 - Mighty Lin Zhantian
“Old man, in the future, I will certainly return the favor for today!” Ye Xiwen gritted his teeth and said with a lot of sweat crazily dipping down his face.
“You do not have a future!” The old man shouted with a hideous look on his face.
“Stop!” A loud shout came, followed by a big hand that came straight down from the sky and caught that old man’s big hand and directly exploded it.
“What were you trying to do?” A thundering voice resounded in the sky and a figure came down flying. This was none other than Qingfeng Mountain sub-school's former ancestor, Lin Zhantian.
The black clothed old man looked coldly at Lin Zhantian.
“This little beast has severely injured the seed disciples of our Shaoyang sub-school and there's no way for our school to participate in the assessment, this hatred is totally irreconcilable.” That old man said and gritted his teeth.
“Bullshit!” Ye Xiwen gasped for breath then said, “It was them who first came to bully the disciples of our sub-school and were forcefully trying to occupy our courtyard. They even injured my brother and were going to cripple him. They went too far and I was just returning the favor, but I was merciful and did not waste their martial arts. “
“Little bastard, you …” The black clothed old man cursed but it was not that he did not know the ins and outs of whole matter. He was just trying to take advantage of the fact that Lin Zhantian had not come back yet and this was the best opportunity to take revenge on Ye Xiwen, and settle things once and for all. But things didn't go as he had planned after the intervention of Lin Zhantian.
“Get out of here!” Lin Zhantian thundered loudly and waved his big sleeves. Almost instantly, a terrifying force arrived in front of the black clothed old man.
“Poof!” The black clothed old man spurted out a mouthful of blood and his skinny body was sent flying upside down. Only one hit had seriously injured him and he was stunned, staring at the Lin Zhantian because he never thought that Lin Zhantian could actually be so strong.
“Zhen dao …” Black clothed old man muttered while glaring at Lin Zhantian with his fierce eyes, he said: “Lin Zhantian, you’ll regret it.”
“Get lost! No one dares to touch my disciples.” Lin Zhantian said in a strong voice. He had clearly demonstrated the strength of the Zhen dao. The disciples of the Zhen dao realm were called 'true disciples'. Compared to them, the core disciples could only be considered mid-level personnel, but true disciples were considered at the top.
In a major sect like Yi Yuan School Main Sect, only few hundred true disciples were present but the added count of core disciples and inner disciples together was almost one hundred thousand. The gap between the positions of these two parties could be seen just from the numbers.
The black clothed old man looked bitterly at Lin Zhantian, no doubt, if they were not in the premises of the Main Sect, he would have been directly beheaded by Lin Zhantian.
The competition among the sub-schools was allowed as long as there were no direct fights between the factions. From the perspective of the Main Sect, as long as the whole martial arts community was flourishing inside the school, competition was permitted.
The black clothed old man looked towards the disciples of Qingfeng Mountain sub-school and bitterly left.
“Let's go inside.” Lin Zhantian said.
After the return of Lin Zhantian, it seemed as if the Qingfeng Mountain sub-school had suddenly gained back its backbone and the disciples followed him inside happy expressions on their faces.
After hearing about all the events that had occurred during his absence, Lin Zhantian smiled and looked at Ye Xiwen then said: “Good, well done, you are the power and prestige of our Qingfeng Mountain sub-school.”
Lin Zhantian was also surprised in his heart because this was quite unexpected, although he had always been very optimistic about Ye Xiwen, but did not expect that he would actually be able to become so strong that not even the seed disciples would be his match. Those seed disciples were considered elite among the elites and were generally very powerful, but had been surprisingly defeated by Ye Xiwen. Lin Zhantian was overjoyed with these turn of events.
“In my absence, all of you have done very well.” Lin Zhantian said.
“Thanks ancestor for your praise!” Everyone said in unison.
“Now, I will tell you about the reason behind the sudden departure of all the elders, although, this is a major affair, but I think it is necessary for all of you to know about it.” Lin Zhantian said.
The looks of all the disciples suddenly became serious because they knew that a matter which was major for Lin Zhantian could never be trivial.
“This thing is slightly strange. For the triennial assessment examination, all of the sub-schools send their respective elite disciples, but this time, actually disciples of more than thirty sub-schools were attacked, out of which, disciples from six sub-schools were completely annihilated and not even their skeletons could be found.” Lin Zhantian said with a solemn look on his face.
Everyone present there held their breaths, though these sub-schools were just Yi Yuan School's sub-schools and relative to the Main Sect, their strength was not much, but compared to other sects, it was still very large. But these were the elite disciples of various sub-schools, not to mention, they were also being accompanied by a few elders, and these elders were super experts of Xiantian fifth stage or more. How could they dare to touch such a team?
But to be able to completely annihilate such a team of experts, this was not possible for ordinary forces!
“In the past, there have been cases when disciples were attacked, but they were all isolated phenomenon or vendetta, but this time, it is not unusual that out of a total of over one hundred sub-schools, more than thirty sub-schools have been attacked.” Lin Zhantian said, “This thing has caused the Sect to have a high degree of attention to this matter because there may be large hostile forces after our disciples. The sect has sent many experts to investigate about this matter.”
“The reason of sharing this thing with you is because, soon, you will enter the Main Sect, after that, you need to be very careful.” Lin Zhantian said.
Participating in the assessment was especially important for sub-schools because it would get easier for their disciples to be directly promoted to become the inner disciples or core disciples in the Main Sect.
Naturally, those who performed outstandingly in the assessment would get more popular and would be able to get more resources for their respective sub-schools. This was the reason why the elder of Shaoyang sub-school was so frantic.
“Yes!” Everyone said in unison.
