The spear move had come abruptly and caught Bao Bao off guard. He jumped to the side to evade this move. Qin Wushuang withdrew his spear and pricked the tip of the spear into the ground. Then, he laughed: "Bao Bao, what do you think of these two spear moves?"
Bao Bao approached him: "Boss, for these two moves, if I am prepared, I don't think it will harm me. However, I was caught off guard when you used it suddenly. Especially that wave of awe-inspiring cold air that had almost made my hands and feet numb. That's freezing power."
Qin Wushuang nodded: "Yes, the name of this spear move is called the Congregated Nucleus Move. It uses my body to communicate with the natural elements. I have practiced a move called the Ice Sword Qi in the past and I had grasped a lot of understanding on how to make things freeze. The moments when my mind wills it, I shoot forward with this spear move."
"Such a strange move, but Boss, next time when I am prepared, you will not be able to threaten me." Bao Bao laughed mischievously.
However, Qin Wushuang said: "This Congregated Nucleus Move is only the beginning. My third move is called Profound Abstruse Move. It is the next stage of the Congregated Nucleus Move. We will try it in the future. Let me remind you. Regardless of this Congregated Nucleus, or the Profound Abstruse, it will not only manifest an icy wind. It could also form other elemental attacks. All of the process is controlled by me."
Bao Bao flashed his tongue and said with a surprised tone: "Boss, how many of the natural elements can you control?"
Qin Wushuang said: "I thought everyone can control the natural power, could it be that a person must select one or a few to control?"
Bao Bao was surprised: "Boss, are you kidding? Although everyone possesses the perception to sense all five elements, in the end, some would have a stronger talent regarding specific elements. And for some elements, some people would naturally be weaker at it. Obviously, when people train, they would pick the ones they have the most potential in to practice. Boss, you are not thinking of becoming an all-around talent, right?"
Qin Wushuang said: "I don't feel any difficulties when using different elements and do not feel much difference. I understand where you are coming from. However, to me, since I don't feel any difficulties in using different elemental forces, why not try them all?"
Bao Bao was dumbstruck at his words as he let out a long sigh: "Boss, could it be that you are a legendary genius?"
Qin Wushuang laughed: "Maybe. Alright, Bao Bao, let's stop with the gossip. Let me ask you, how are those Red Maple elite warriors with the foreign surnames feeling recently?"
"Ha ha, they are all irascible. Only, in the end they still fear the Monkey Clan and would not dare to run away." Bao Bao laughed.
Qin Wushuang nodded: "For these few days, I will observe them from the dark. I will see which ones have good moral characters and which ones don't. For those with the good moral characters, they will be of use to me."
Bao Bao laughed: "Boss, could it be that you want them to seek asylum at the Stargaze Palace, or your Heavenly Royal Mansion?"
"Both will need them. Since they are elite warriors, the more the better."
At any time, Qin Wushuang felt that he did not have enough manpower. Indeed, he was craving talents. Especially at the Heavenly Royal Mansion, besides his father and his brother-in-law, there were almost nobody that could take charge of a section.
"Ok, Bao Bao, take me to the observation area." Qin Wushuang said with a smile.
He arrived at the area housing those elite warriors with the foreign surnames. After observing a while in the dark corner, Qin Wushuang said Bao Bao: "Send someone to call out that Lin Dian. I thought he was good the first time I saw him."
Bao Bao answered and laughed: "Boss, wait here, I will arrange it now."
At the Monkey King Mountain, Bao Bao held the position of heir apparent to the throne. Naturally, he would do business with efficiency. Soon, that Lin Dian was brought to the back of the mountain.
While Lin Dian was heading up the slope, he mumbled: "You are making a move, right? Just be quick if you are going to kill me. What's the point of hiding it? Since I, Lin Dian, am your prisoner, I am not scared of death."
However, Bao Bao said lazily: "Hey, this guy, why do you always think about death. I don't think we talked about killing you guys, right?"
Lin Dian jeered: "If you are not killing us, why are you keeping us here?"
At that time, Qin Wushuang had used the voice perception skill to send his words to the Silver Monkey King. Thus, these people did not know that it was Qin Wushuang's idea to not kill them. Of course, this Lin Dian was kept in the dark.
"Stop talking, go up." Bao Bao pointed to the top.
Lin Dian did not hold back as he knew that at this Monkey King Mountain, he no longer controlled his own fate. Might as well be a bit more straightforward and just go. When he made a turn on the slope, he saw a person standing on the top. Despite his young age, he showcased an extraordinary temperament. Currently, the youth was sizing him up with a judgmental look.
Lin Dian gave a light grunt and walked up boldly: "What, the Monkey Clan is not making the move and you are?"
Qin Wushuang laughed: "Make what move?"
Lin Dian said angrily: "Stop playing dumb, Qin Wushuang right? I heard about your name. In the human countries, you are a good guy. However, at the Dispersed Praying Mountain, I don't admire you.
"Then who do you admire?" Qin Wushuang smiled and did not mind his words.
"No one." Lin Dian was rather straightforward.
"Including that Ye Wentong?" Qin Wushuang asked lightly.
"Ye Wentong? He's only more powerful than me and was born to be the Suzerain of the Red Maple Human Clan. Regarding his moral character, he is of unimaginably inferior quality. Why should I admire him?"
"If you don't admire him, why did you still follow him?" Qin Wushuang asked sharply.
"Besides the Red Maple Human Clan in the Dispersed Praying Mountain, there is nowhere else to establish oneself." Lin Dian laughed grimly, "If I don't follow him, I cannot even stand on my own. Would I go to the Barbarian Tribe? The Monkey Clan?"
Qin Wushuang laughed: "A real man would have found his own footing between heaven and earth, with the head pointed to the sky and feet firmly on the ground. Since you didn't like him, you should not have stayed here."
Lin Dian was not in a happy mood: "Why are you saying these things to me?"
"I only want to ask you, do you wish to make some accomplishments?"
"What if I do? What if I don't?" Lin Dian asked in a low voice.
"If you want, I can point a way for you. If you don't want to, I will let you leave the mountain. Regardless of where you go, I promise that no one will be able to stop or track you." Qin Wushuang said seriously.
"Only, the situation in the Tian Xuan Land works like this. A single tree will not form a forest. Regardless of how strong a person is, in the end, they are only a freelance martial artist. Without an organization, a strong backbone, even in the human countries, you would not be able to make astounding accomplishments."
Qin Wushuang was not speaking these words without thinking. In the human countries, there were some freelance martial artists that did not belong to any sects. However, most of these freelance artists were nameless and unknown. Even if they had used some methods and reached a remarkable stage, they would not become famous.
It was because since you were alone, the others would not fear you.
"Who said that I would be a freelance martial artist? When I go to the human countries to seek asylum at any of the sects, would they not take me in?" Inwardly, Lin Dian had already acknowledged Qin Wushuang's words to some extent. Yet, he still refused to admit it on the surface.
"Yes, with your Advanced Stage, you would not worry whether they would take you in or not. Only, when you go seek asylum at their sect out of blue, it would be difficult to get put into an important position or acquire supreme status. Regardless, they would hold back on you. Did the Elders with the foreign surnames hold core positions in the Red Maple Human Clan? I am guessing not, right?"
Although Qin Wushuang smiled casually, he drew blood on the first prick.
Lin Dian gave a decrepit sigh: "What you said is true. When a person is not born in a good family, and without a sect, would they be destined to be a lonely soul? Is this the fate?"
Qin Wushuang laughed: "Of course it's not fate. What you guys lack is a chance!"
"A chance?" Lin Dian raised his head with surprise and looked at Qin Wushuang.
Qin Wushuang nodded: "Yes, I have a proposition for you. I wonder if you are interested in hearing me out."
"Please speak." Clearly, Lin Dian's tone was much more relaxed.
Qin Wushuang gave a carefree smile: "Since you've heard of my name, you should know where I am from. The country I reside in is a newly risen Upper Ranking Empire, the Great Luo Empire. In the human countries, they are currently stand equal to the Nine Raven and the Sky Travel Empire. We have replaced the position of the Red Dragon Empire. Now, the Upper Ranking Empire had just risen, and is in need of talented people…"
"You are asking me to go to the Great Luo Empire?" Lin Dian asked in a low voice.
"A secular empire is not fun. I am recommending you to my sect—Stargaze Palace!" Qin Wushuang said with a smile, and stared at Lin Dian with luminous pair of eyes. He would not allow him to evade his gaze.
After a moment of serious thinking, Lin Dian said: "I am afraid that your sect would not take in me, a foreigner?"
"Ha ha, don't worry about that. The Head Palace Master and the Second Palace Master of the Stargaze Palace are broad-minded people. As long as it's a person with talent, they would get an invaluable position. The Stargaze Palace is planning to establish a Guardian Court. If you go, you can get a position as the Head Guardian!"
Lin Dian moved his eyebrow: "Head Guardian? What is that Guardian Court? They are only hired thugs, right?"
Qin Wushuang smiled: "The position of a Guardian is above the Shakyamuni and Elders, they only report to the Palace Masters. They would have supreme positions at the Stargaze Palace. No need to worry about people pushing you to the side."
Lin Dian nodded and fell into a brief moment of silence. Then, he asked again: "Why did you pick me?"
Qin Wushuang laughed leisurely: "The first time I saw you, I saw that your moral character is incomparable to those Red Maple Human Clan mob. Perhaps, my judgment will be wrong. But I feel that you are worth a shot!"
Lin Dian revealed a surprised look as he looked at Qin Wushuang. Inwardly, he was emotionally stirred. After having lived for several decades, it was the first time someone had talked about moral characters with him. And it was from a positive angle.
Regardless of the motives behind these words, it was after all, a form of praise!
"What do you think?" Qin Wushuang observed him and knew that Lin Dian was moved. He continued to speak, "Let me say a few boastful words. Today, if you choose to go to the Stargaze Palace, perhaps, in the future it will end up being an extremely smart choice for you. In the past, many people also faced the decision like you did now. They did not hesitate and chose to follow me. Now, each of them feel lucky that they did."
Lin Dian gave a long sigh: "I must admit that you are a successful negotiator! Qin Wushuang, some of the words I previously said, I did not mean it. In fact, since you are able to achieve the Perfect Stage at the age of twenty, not to mention me, even those damned Suzerains of the Red Maple Human Clan were envious!"
Hearing his words, Qin Wushuang laughed. He realized that this Lin Dian had this interesting side. Initially, he thought that this Lin Dian was an old-fashioned and unreasonable person.
