West Radiance Peak.
Even though it was only one of the mountains on Nine Radiance Mountain Range, it was extremely vast, rose and fell continuously, and occupied a few tens of thousands of kilometers.
When one looked down from high above in the air, the entire West Radiance Peace was like a lotus flower in full blood within the vast mountain range. Its petals touched the sky, it was suffused with divine lights, and it was extremely exquisite.
Two streaks tore through the sea of clouds as they flashed towards West Radiance Peak, and they were precisely Chen Xi and Qing Yu who'd just returned from True Martial Peak.
"Junior Brother Chen, you're a disciple that Master just took, so you probably still don't know that our West Radiance Peak is different from the other peaks, and it only possesses six Elite Disciples…" Qing Yu introduced the situation on West Radiance Peak in detail as they flashed through the sky.
It turned out the Madman Liu had only taken a total of six disciples on West Radiance Peak, and there were only seven when Chen Xi was added on, causing it to be pitiably few and far from being able to compare with the other peaks.
For example, the East Radiance Peak had over 1,600 Elite Disciples, and was filled with talents. Moreover, there were countless maidservants and attendants on the peak. It was the strongest peak amongst the 'four Elite Disciple Peaks' of the Nine Radiance Sword Sect.
The so called four Elite Disciple Peaks pointed towards the East Radiance, West Radiance, South Radiance, and North Radiance Peaks.
Besides the East Radiance Peak being filled with talents and flourishing with strength, the South Radiance Peak wasn't weak either. The disciples that cultivated on it were all of the School of Fiendgod Body Refinement, and they were known for being valiant and ferocious.
Besides that, the disciples taken by the North Radiance Peak were all female cultivators, causing it to possess an aloof status, and its strength couldn't be underestimated either. According to what Qing Yu said, the current number one figure amongst the Elite Disciples of the Nine Radiance Sword Sect was a proud female genius from the North Radiance Peak!
Compared to this, only the West Radiance Peak seemed to be rather abnormal by only possessing a mere six Elite Disciples, or seven when Chen Xi was included, causing its forces to be weak to the limit and practically have no sense of existence in the Nine Radiance Sword Sect.
"Why is it like this?" Chen Xi asked curiously.
"This is Master's decision. According to what he said, in the matter of taking disciples, it was fine to not take anyone, but if he did, then he wanted to take the best and most unique. Otherwise, if he took a big pile of trash, they would be pleasant to the eye, but of no use." Qing Yu spoke with a prideful expression, and he obviously agreed extremely with this viewpoint of Madman Liu's.
"Oh?" Chen Xi came to a sudden understanding, and then he rubbed his nose as he said with a smile, "I never imagined that I was actually able to chosen as well, I really do feel slightly overwhelmed by the unexpected favor."
Qing Yu seemed to have thought of something, causing his handsome face to instantly reveal extreme embarrassment, and he really didn't know how to reply.
"Haha! What bullshit uniqueness?! Junior Brother Qing Yu, I never noticed that you who's a rather honest person would actually become so arrogant when boasting as well. Does anyone in the Nine Radiance Sword Sect not know of the name of the 'six idiots of West Radiance Peak?'
"Hey, Senior Brother Du, stop frustrating Junior Brother Qing Yu. He's already extremely pitiable. He doesn't fight back when struck, nor does he talk back when insulted, is there a person more pitiable than him in the world?"
"Hahaha…" Right at this moment, a wave of loud laughter resounded out in the distant sea of clouds, and their voices contained unconcealed ridicule and mocking.
Chen Xi glanced at Qing Yu who was by his side, and he saw the face of this handsome and pure young man was flushed completely red, and he was angered to the point his entire body started trembling. But he puckered his lips tightly and appeared to only dare feel indignant, yet not dare say anything.
"Junior Brother Chen, let's go. Don't pay attention to these bored people." Qing Yu spoke swiftly with a low voice, and his voice faintly carried a trace of terror and worry.
"Wait. Junior Brother Qing Yu, don't blame Senior Brother for turning hostile and being merciless if you dare leave!" A loud shout sounded out.
Accompanying this voice was a wave of roiling in the depths of the sea of clouds, and then a few golden rays of light tore through the sky like waterfalls, and they moved with extremely swift speed to arrive in the blink of an eye.
It was a group of young men and women, they either wore magnificent feather clothes, dazzling armor, or fluttering dresses. The young men were handsome, the young women beautiful and moving, and they were extremely striking.
At the instant they appeared, they encircled Chen Xi and Qing Yu with domineering attitudes. Obviously, they'd done this more than once, and their movements were extremely skillful.
"What are all of you planning to do!?" Qing Yu spoke with a voice that slightly lacked confidence, and it wasn't like questioning tone but rather like the wail of an infant beast when fallen into a difficult position, and the sight of it caused Chen Xi to shake his head.
But Chen Xi didn't say anything further. He'd just arrived at the Nine Radiance Sword Sect, he was a stranger in a strange place, and he could be said to be completely in the dark. So it just happened that he could use this opportunity to properly survey the place he would be cultivating at in the future and find out exactly what sort of situation it was in.
"Hey, this Junior Brother is extremely unfamiliar. He wouldn't be a disciple Martial Uncle Liu just took, right?" One of them laughed with ridicule, and he directly overlooked Qing Yu's threat before raising his eyes to size Chen Xi up.
He wore a black robe, had a white and narrow face, and his eyes were filled with an unruly light. His appearance was somewhat handsome yet his voice was like broken drum, hoarse and sharp, and it was extremely ear piercing and unpleasant to the ear.
"He seems to be so. I heard the various elders headed out in all directions and searched high and low a few days ago, and all of them brought back some young talents that they'd taken as Elite Disciples. This Junior Brother before us is surely someone Martial Uncle Liu brought back."
"Oh, in this way, this Junior Brother is a 'unique' genius as well?"
"Haha! Yeah, unique, exactly!"
All the young men and women brazenly sized Chen Xi up. They held ridiculing gazes as they roared with laughter, and they seemed as if they were looking at an enormous joke.
"All of you… Don't go too far!" Qing Yu was furious to the point his entire face flushed red, and he roared with indignation.
"Too far? Have we gone too far?" The black robed young man with a sharp and unpleasant voice laughed with ridicule as he said, "Aren't all the disciples of your West Radiance Peak unique? Did I say something wrong?"
Qing Yu was angered to the point his chest rose and fell indeterminately, and he was already unable to speak.
Even at this moment, he still didn't have the slightest intention to resist, and the sight of it caused the nearby Chen Xi to sigh. This Senior Brother of mine is truly…too kind hearted!
"Senior Brother Qing Yu, let's go." Chen Xi patted Qing Yu on the shoulder before turning around with the intention of leaving.
He was slightly unable to bear the sight of this any longer, but he thought of how he'd just arrived at the Nine Radiance Sword Sect and it wasn't suitable to cause trouble, so he intended to figure out the situation first before making a decision.
"Oh, okay." Qing Yu nodded repeatedly.
"Wait! Who allowed both of you to leave?" The black robed young man said coldly, "This Junior Brother is new and probably doesn't know the rules of our Nine Radiance Sword Sect clearly. Why don't you stay back and allow us to provide you with guidance?"
"Du Guan! Don't go too far!" Qing Yu's face swiftly turned grim when he heard they wanted Chen Xi to stay back, and he seemed to have recalled a memory that he couldn't bear to recall, causing him to roar with rage. Moreover, his voice started trembling as he spoke because of his agitation.
"We're helping to guide this Junior Brother with good intentions. Junior Brother Qing Yu, aren't you being too rude?" Du Guan chuckled as he spoke unhurriedly.
"Yeah, yeah. The disciple of your West Radiance Peak is the Junior Brother of our East Radiance Peak as well. We're all from the same sect, so what's there to be anxious of when we're just having a conversation together?" The others spoke in support from the side, and they held ridiculing expressions as they spoke sarcastically.
"You…" Qing Yu glared furiously, and his voice trembled without end.
"It's fine, Junior Brother Qing Yu." Chen Xi walked forward as he interrupted Qing Yu, and then he faced Du Guan and the others as he said with a smile, "Since fellow seniors want to guide me, a newbie, then it couldn't be any better. I wonder where we'll start from?"
"Junior Brother Chen…" Qing Yu was extremely anxious. He knew Chen Xi's strength wasn't bad, but the eight disciples before them were renowned bullies of the East Radiance Peak, so wouldn't they be beaten half dead if they offended these disciples?
"Relax," said Chen Xi indifferently via voice transmission.
His voice seemed as if it had magical powers, causing Qing Yu's restless and uneasy heart to become much calmer for no reason or rhyme.
He didn't continue dissuading Chen Xi but explained swiftly. "Junior Brother Chen Xi, the person in the lead, Du Guan, is from the Nethercrow Clan of the myriad of clans from the primordial era. He possesses formidable strength, behaves extremely ruthlessly, and he's already about to advance into the Nether Transformation Realm. Every single one of his henchmen possess strengths that can't be looked down upon, so you have to be careful. Flee if you can't defeat them because you ought to still be able to make it if you turn around and flee to True Martial Peak now."
Chen Xi couldn't help but laugh bitterly without end in his heart. This Senior Brother of mine is too kind hearted in the end, or is it too weak and soft? But his concern towards Chen Xi came from the heart, and this was something Chen Xi was still able to perceive.
Du Guan was stunned as he seemed to have never expected that Chen Xi would actually agree so readily, and then he snapped his fingers as he said casually, "Junior Brother, you have great courage! It's very simple, the rule of our Nine Radiance Sword Sect is…"
"Getting bashed!" A male disciple by Du Guan's side seized the opportunity to answer Du Guan, and as soon as he finished speaking, the others were already roaring with laughter.
The others crossed their arms before themselves successively, and they seemed as if they going to watch a show.
"Right, it's precisely getting bashed." Du Guan said in all seriousness, "There's great attention to be paid to when getting bashed. It must dispel the pride, laziness, arrogance, wildness, and other bad habits you possess. In this way, the state of your minds would become more beneficial to your cultivation."
When he saw Du Guan reveal such an appearance, the female disciple amongst the group couldn't refrain from laughing as she felt her Senior Brother Du was too good at playing tricks on pool, and anyone who fell into his hands would surely be played like a fool.
"Getting bashed?" Chen Xi seemed to be lost in thought as he nodded, and then sighed with emotion. "This is really an indescribably brilliant method."
"That isn't…" Du Guan had a complacent expression as he spoke subconsciously, and then he realized the person that spoke these words was Chen Xi, and his expression couldn't help but go grim as he grunted coldly. "Kid, you motherfucking dare…"
He hadn't finished speaking when he felt something flash before his eyes, and then Chen Xi's figure had actually vanished on the spot.
In the next moment, a resounding slap sounded out. Every saw that Du Guan's entire body was slapped flying, and he didn't even have the time to activate the protective magic treasures in his possession!
A mouthful of fresh blood sprayed out of Du Guan's mouth as his face swelled to the point it was like the head of a pig, and a few teeth were sprayed out along with the blood!
The mouths of everyone gaped wide open, as they never imagined that Du Guan would actually suffer such humiliation!
"Bastard! You're courting death, you're courting death by doing this!" Du Guan was struck by the slap to the point his head droned, and he was completely furious as he let out an exceedingly sharp roar.
Another resounding slap sounded out as Du Guan's entire body was directly slapped flying 300 meters away, and he was struck to the point his nose started bleeding while stars danced before his eyes.
"Isn't getting bashed beneficial to cultivating? Now that I speak of it, Senior Brother Du, you ought to thank me because I'm helping you clear your mind to cultivate." Chen Xi walked forward and spoke with a grin.
