Qin Wushuang said to the seniors after Bao Bao's words: "Teacher, Palace Masters, this Spiritual Infant Fruit is a mature one. Thus, it has extraordinary efficacy. Not only would it repair the dantian, it could also transform the dantian and increase its potential. The Silver Monkey King said that it would not be a problem to enter the Perfect Stage after consuming it. There would be also be a great hope of entering the Void Martial Stage!"
When everyone heard his words, they were at first stunned, then they felt immense joy.
Zhuo Buqn laughed straightforwardly: "Second, this is your good luck, your fortune and fate. You've turned misfortune into a blessing and a profit from this disaster. This is the fortune of the Stargaze Palace and the sign that the Palace will thrive. This is a great fortune, ha ha, great fortune."
Zhuo Buqun was broad-minded and did not show a trace of jealousy. Instead, he was overjoyed at the unexpected good news. The more elite warriors the Stargaze Palace had, the brighter the future it would have. This was an undeniable fact!
Tian Zhixing sighed: "Second, congratulation again, ha ha, Void Martial Force! If a Void Martial Force warrior appeared in the Stargaze Palace, then who else in the human countries would dare to bully us?"
Both Zhong Wuyin and Leng Qiuchi all nodded. Earlier, they did not accept Tan Zhongchi's skill. However, after that battle with Zhao Heng, they finally realized the reason for Tan Zhongchi rankings being higher than theirs. As the Second Palace Master, Tan Zhongchi had strengths that they did not have!
Thus, currently, they did not possess any jealousy toward Tan Zhongchi, but only happiness. They were happy because they were viewing the matter from the perspective of the entire Stargaze Palace. Thus, their breadth of mind and height was completely different than before!
Zhuo Buqun was the first one to calm down. The moment after feeling joyous for Tan Zhongchi, he had already started to expand his thoughts and started to considering a variety of problems.
After a moment of silence, he spoke: "Everyone, let's keep the news of how Second has been healed a secret, don't let any of your disciples learn about it. Currently, besides a few Core disciples that knows Wushuang went to get the Spiritual Infant Fruits, most disciples do not know. To prevent too many voices speaking, we shall seal this news for now. Or else, when the news of us acquiring the Spiritual Infant Fruits spreads to the Nine Palace Faction, most likely, they would change their plans! They would quicken their process to invade the Stargaze Palace."
Instantly, Zhuo Buqun's words caused the other Palace Masters's expression to become solemn. Each of these Palace Masters were superior figures and had naturally analyzed the heart of the Head Palace Master's words.
Since the Stargaze Palace knew the efficacy of the Spiritual Infant Fruits, the Nine Palace Faction might also learn about it. If the Nine Palace had learned how Tan Zhongchi had consumed the fruit and might advance to the Void Martial Force, for sure they would strike first. Or else, with how things were done in the human countries, between the grudge of the Nine Palace and the Stargaze Palace, Tan Zhongchi would seek twice the revenge.
In comparison to waiting for Tan Zhongchi to advance to the Void Martial Force, they would rather move first.
Fortunately, besides the Five Palace Masters in the Stargaze Palace, only those ten Core disciples knew of Qin Wushuang's movements. And those ten Core disciples were the most trusted aides. Naturally, they would not worry about them leaking the news.
"Boss's words are reasonable, we must protect this secret! Even if Second could not enter the Void Martial Force for the time being, he could still make it to the Perfect Stage. By working with Boss and with Qin Wushuang's spiritual bow, it's enough for us to deal with the
Nine Palace. If the Dragon and Tiger sect can join forces with us, we will not be in such a disadvantaged situation when dealing with the Nine Palace Faction!"
From Zhong Wuyin's tone, there contained a wave of strong hatred. He had also participated in that battle before the mountain gate and experienced a deep disgrace.
Qin Wushuang said: "At the moment, it's crucial for Teacher to regain his power, then aim for the Perfect Stage. Let's take one step at a time. The Nine Palace Faction are not so formidable."
"Oh? Why do you say that?"
Qin Wushuang spoke seriously: "The dantian of Zhao Heng, of the Nine Palace Faction was also injured. He sent Zhu Dazhong and his grandson to the Dispersed Praying Mountain to get the Spiritual Infant Fruits. However, I shot that Zhu Dazhong to death with the Graceful Spiritual Bow and avenged my teacher a little. And I captured that Young Master Zhao."
After he had finished speaking, he grabbed the storage sack and let that Young Master Zhao out. Then, he brought Zhu Dazhong's head out.
When the five Palace Masters fixed their gaze on the thing in Qin Wushuang's hand, it was indeed the head of that Zhu Dazhong. His eyes were still opened widely showing his last moments had been filled with resentment and unwillingness.
Zhong Wuyin was the first one to laugh: "Great, great! Nicely done! Zhu Dazhong, the Archaic Mysteries Sect had led the wolf into the den, how come you died first? Ha ha."
Tan Zhongchi seemed to be used to Qin Wushuang's miracles as he sighed: "Wushuang, your growth is very fast. Currently, you are a pillar of the Stargaze like the five of the Palace Masters. You should not feel too proud and must continue the struggle."
Qin Wushuang said respectfully: "I will remember your instructions in my heart."
A light happy expression appeared on Zhuo Buqun's face as he said: "This is a good news, Zhao Heng's dantian was injured and he needs the Spiritual Infant Fruits. This way, the number of Perfect Stages in the Nine Palace has dropped to only two and half. The Stargaze Palace now holds a greater chance."
Bao Bao only smiled while hearing their discussion. However, since Qin Wushuang did not speak, it would be inappropriate for him to interrupt.
Of course, Qin Wushuang had his own reason for remaining silent. He knew that it would not matter if he exposed his own strength. However, it would not be appropriate to expose the secrets of the Seven Deadly Formation Arrays.
It was unsuitable for him to reveal two of his other trump cards, Bao Bao and the Purple Flame Electric Beast. Thus, he was not in a rush to speak about them.
He would wait for the moment when he had trained the Purple Flame Electric beast to maturity to present it as a surprise to the seniors.
Qin Wushuang disliked showing off as a person. Currently, since the Purple Flame beast had not been released yet, he did not want to boast about the uncertain future. This was not his style.
Zhuo Buqun asked: "Second, are you going to keep rest here, or return to the Green Cloud Palace?"
Tan Zhongchi said in a low voice: "Since we need to keep this news confidential, I will stay here. People will make assumptions and cause unnecessary panic if I return to the Green Cloud Palace."
"Makes sense." The other Palace Masters all nodded.
Qin Wushuang said: "I will stay here to serve you."
Tan Zhongchi shook his head: "Wushuang, right now you are a pillar of the Stargaze Palace, how could you waste your time here? My instructions remain the same, go do whatever you want. I will not restrict your freedom."
Zhuo Buqun also comforted him: "Wushuang, since your teacher's dantian is healed, he only needs some time to regain his complete health. If you have the intention, you can protect him for a month. After a month, you will continue your training, how about it?"
A month of time was the approximate time Tan Zhongchi needed to undergo a complete recovery. Since Zhuo Buqun had said these words, the others would not object.
"Third, another winter is here. I need you to be in full charge of this year's year-end exam. I must go visit the Dragon and Tiger Sect to hear Shi Chenglong's intention."
Zhong Wuyin, the Third Palace Master said seriously: "Boss, you are going to the Dragon and Tiger sect at this time?"
"Before I had no time to since we were taking care of Second. For this matter, the earlier the better it would be if we wish to communicate with the Dragon and Tier Sect. We cannot delay and must take the initiative to face it."
Tan Zhongchi had agreed: "Third, let the Head Palace Master go. To deal with the Nine Palace Faction, it's difficult to achieve anything without support for the Stargaze Palace. We must join forces with the Dragon and Tiger sect."
Zhuo Buqun said: "Fourth, Fifth, you two will be in charge of other domestic affairs of the Palace. Each person will take turn to accompany Wushuang to protect Second, how about it?"
All the other Palace Masters nodded in agreement.
"For my trip, it could take as fast as one month or as slow as three months. I will come back before the new year." Zhuo Buqun instructed and all other Palace Masters understood their roles.
The appearance of the Spiritual Infant Fruits and the restoration of Tan Zhongchi had swept away all the depressing atmosphere from these past years. It allowed them to see the vital energy and the future of the Stargaze Palace even if they had to fight against the Nine Palace Faction.
After everyone had left, Tan Zhongchi held Qin Wushuang's hands lightly and patted it slowly. He spoke with a gratified tone.
"Wushuang, in my life, the most successful thing I had achieved was not becoming the Second Palace Master of the Palace, but to have taken you in. Before the other Palace Masters, there are some other words I cannot really say. However, with only you and me here, I would say arrogantly that the future of the Stargaze Palace will shine in your hands! It will reach an unprecedented height!"
"Teacher, I wouldn't dare." Qin Wushuang gave a long sigh.
"Wushuang, a man would never pass their responsibility off to someone else, don't fear. This is the praise you deserve. I am afraid that even that kid, Wei Yi, will look up to you in the future. The Head Palace Master already told me about your Graceful Spiritual Bow, you must treasure this. A divine weapon is like a double-edged sword. If you used it well, it's a divine weapon, if not, you will attract a calamity."
Qin Wushuang nodded: "I will remember your instructions in my heart. I will treasure the Graceful Spiritual Bow with my life."
Tan Zhongchi nodded lightly: "Wushuang, today I feel like I am in a dream. At that moment when my injuries resurfaced, I was already ready to die and carried many regrets in my heart. Before my death, none of my disciples were around. I didn't expect that you, Wushuang, would create a miracle for me."
"Teacher, this is your fate, or else how could I have gotten the Spiritual Infant Fruits in a year?" Qin Wushuang explained in detail his trip from the Stargaze Palace to the Monkey King Mountain. Besides the secret about Bao Bao, he did not hide anything.
Tan Zhongchi wore a serious expression as he thought: "Wushuang, that Miss Mu Rong you talked about is somewhat strange!"
"Teacher, I also find it strange. That Miss Mu Rong appears out of rhe ordinary. I think she is from a spiritual taboo place."
Tan Zhongchi said seriously: "That must be the case, I wonder where she is from."
Suddenly, he laughed: "Wushuang, after all that Miss Mu Rong is not hostile towards you. She must have some positive feelings for you, or else she would not have invited you for drinks."
Suddenly, Bao Bao said: "Miss Mu Rong? Mu Rong…"
"What? What do you know, Bao Bao?" Qin Wushuang asked with curiosity.
Bao Bao frowned his nose and rolled his body to show his thinking pose: "I heard the Silver Monkey King talking about some major powerhouses in the Xuan Yuan Mound. It seems that a human major powerhouse also shares the surname of Mu Rong!"
