Ch184 – Baili Yunhua
Baili Yunshan revealed a sneer that didnt match his age once he heard that. Him, from the Bai family? Watch how Xiao Ye screws him over later.
This hostile look seemed a bit off. Doesnt Baili Yunshans elder brother want to help him go through the backdoor and send him to study under one of the Bai familys elders?
Why does Baili Yunshan look so unfriendly when it comes to the Bai family
Lin Xuanzhi pondered for a bit, then said, Make sure to put on a good display during the competition later. A few of the Bai familys elders from Sky Peak Sect are watching from the seats, so one of them may discover your potential and be willing to accept you as a disciple.
Baili Yunshan almost jumped up. He said angrily, Thats my Second Brothers own wishful thinking. I didnt want to put him in a spot, so I didnt oppose it when he talked about it to you that day. But Ill tell you the truth; Ive never intended to become a disciple of those Bai dogs!
Lin Xuanzhi could confirm now that Baili Yunshan wasnt targeting anyone from the Bai family specifically, but rather the entire Bai family.
However, his Second Brother was quite insistent on sending this Third Brother to study under the Bai family. This contradiction is a little interesting.
Lin Xuanzhi said, Do you have some sort of misunderstanding about the Bai family?
Their familys just trash. Baili Yunshan scolded with much disdain, I came today to give the Bai family a good, harsh slap in their faces. It would be best if I could make it such that they will never be able to make a comeback forever!
Lin Xuanzhi, That may be a little difficult.
Baili Yunshan was even prepared to pull Lin Xuanzhi to his side as an ally. Lin Dage, if you can get rid of all those people from the Bai family, Ill be your little brother!
Lin Xuanzhi smiled lightly. Okay, whats difficult about that?
Its a promise then. Baili Yunshans eyes were particularly bright.
Its a promise. Lin Xuanzhi thought that the Baili family must have spoiled this third child quite a bit.
On the other side, Bai Susu, who was standing beside Bai Honghu, glared harshly at Lin Xuanzhi. She said to Bai Honghu, Honghu Gege, the one opposite is Lin Xuanzhi. Yanhui Gege and Hongfei Gege got into trouble because of him.
Bai Yanhui and Bai Hongfei were Bai Honghus biological younger brothers. They were supposed to participate in this competition as well, and the three of them had planned to soar to fame here and become the focus of everyones attention.
But nowall of that had been ruined by Lin Xuanzhi.
Bai Honghu narrowed his eyes and said menacingly, Dont worry, Ill definitely show him whos boss.
Bai Susu warned, But Lin Xuanzhi wont be easy to deal with. He has a lot of tricks up his sleeves, you must be careful.
Bai Honghu sneered, Do you think Ill be afraid of him? Watch ba, Ill make him lose face for sure.
Baili Yunsong looked at Baili Yunshan on the stage, who wasnt behaving himself properly as he kept chatting with Lin Xuanzhi and waving his fist at the row of Bai family members opposite, then looked over at Sky Peak Sects side. He couldnt help but let his mouth twitch and say to the one beside him, Lao San is too unaware of the ways of the world. If he expresses his dissatisfaction with the Bai family so clearly, he will definitely be crossed out by the Bai family straight away ba.
Then let them cross him out ma, whats the big deal about that? A family voice travelled over, and it even sounded a bit sloppy.
Baili Yunhua patted Baili Yunsongs shoulder, One of my Dao friends who I cultivate with said that the Hundred Families Gathering started, which was when I found out that you guys actually came to Sky Peak City. Why didnt you notify me of something so important?
Isnt it cause we were afraid of getting in the way of Dages cultivation? Baili Yunsong laughed. He was in a good mood after seeing his elder brother.
Baili Yunhua squinted at Baili Yunshan, whose side was facing him, and smiled, Within the blink of an eye, Yunshan has grown up too. He still had a chubby little face the last time I saw him.
Dage hadnt come home for too long. Baili Yunsong said.
Yeah. Baili Yunhua thought about it for a bit and said with some dismay, If we were to count it, it shouldve been about three years.
Baili Yunsong looked at his Dage, who was so skinny he looked just like a rack of bones now, and felt quite sour. He pondered, then said, Dage, that guy from the Bai family paid us a visit a few times in the past two years as he wanted to find you, but you werent around, and you werent contactable either.
Baili Yunhua paused. He looked at Baili Yunsong, Youre talking about Bai Cangshu?
Yeah. Baili Yunsong nodded. Who else could it be aside from him?
Hes pretty persistent ah. Baili Yunhua couldnt help but click his tongue.
Baili Yunsong asked, Dage, you really dont intend to see him?
Whats there to see? We already fell out so badly the last time. We might really end up fighting again if we were to see each other again. Yet Baili Yunhua smiled lightly, After all, I cant return him a younger sister no matter what. If our parents are willing to give birth to another younger sister, I would be willing to marry her off to him in a decade or two.
Baili Yunsong couldnt hold it back; the corners of his mouth twitched violently.
Dage, although he just leaves without saying anything every time he comes, I could sense that he wasnt there to collect debts or for a younger sister. Baili Yunsong said out of fairness.
Then what did he go over for? Baili Yunhua frowned, Dont tell me he wanted to hit me out of anger?
Dage, could you dare to be a little more positive? He travelled thousands of miles to get to the Baili family, do you think that he did that just for a fight?
Why couldnt he? Baili Yunhua said with great emphasis, That pervert is too terrifying, you cant know what hes thinking about at all.
If he appears at our house again in the future, just close the gates and dont let him in. Baili Yunhua earnestly instructed, Craftsmen cant be provoked, and Bai Cangshu is the most outstanding one to boot. I dont get why you want to let such an obedient child like Yunshan mingle with the Bai family.
Dont mention him anymore, otherwise I might get nightmares at night. Baili Yunhua patted his chest.
Baili Yunsong looked at the tall and handsome man behind Baili Yunhua, whose expression was as cold as frost, and suddenly felt like the world may be ending soon. He kept tossing Baili Yunhua gazes again and again, looking as if he couldnt bear to continue watching any further.
Youve dreamed of me? The man spoke.
Baili Yunhua was stunned. He glared at Baili Yunsong, Why didnt you tell me?
Baili Yunsong felt so wronged. Did you ever give me a chance to talk??
Baili Yunhua glared at him harshly, tossing him a Ill settle this with you next time gaze, before putting on the most sincere of smiles on his face as he turned around to face Bai Cangshu, who was half a head taller than him, Craftsman Bai, long time no see.
Bai Cangshus expression was as cold as usual. He stared at him, You should call me Elder Bai now.
Baili Yunhuas eyelids twitched. We havent met for just three years, and yet youve already turned into an elder now?
Un. Bai Cangshu said, You lost this time.
Baili Yunhua wanted to scold someone, but after thinking about it, there wasnt anything worth scolding. He smiled kindly and said sincerely, Congratulations, Elder Bai. Ever since the first day I met you, I knew you were someone with boundless prospects. Youre probably the youngest elder ever in the history of Sky Peak Sect, right?
Yes. Bai Cangshu nodded slightly. If you had been in Sky Peak Sect for the past three years, then it wouldve been difficult to tell who would have won or lost between us.
Im much worse compared to you. Baili Yunhua smiled, My cultivation hasnt improved much these years, and I probably wont be able to match up to you in the future either.
Bai Cangshus gaze had already shifted from Baili Yunhuas face to the competition venue. The craftsmen competition has already begun, watch seriously ba.
Baili Yunhua replied, There are so many rising stars in the Bai family, there are actually eight participants from your family this time.
Bai Cangshu looked at the third child from the Baili family, then spent a long time looking at Lin Xuanzhi. Not many are worthy. Even all of them added up together cant compare to that young man from the Lin family.
Baili Yunhua had just arrived at Sky Peak City, so he knew nothing about what had happened beforehand.
Nevertheless, to receive such praise from Bai Cangshu made Baili Yunhua extremely curious about him.
The one from the Lin family? Baili Yunhua had seen Lin Xuanzhi as well. That should be the one that used to be called the top cultivator in the past and future five hundred years by Profound Sky Sect, Lin Xuanzhi, right?
You know him? Bai Cangshu asked.
How could I? Ive never been to the East Continent, so I couldnt have had the opportunity to get to know him. Baili Yunhua squinted and studied Lin Xuanzhi appreciatively, who was crafting skilfully, Hes too well-known. Do you still remember when we heard of the name Yu Huarong, making one forget immortals with just one look? We even discussed how good-looking and outstanding this person could be He, and now Ive seen it for myself.
Making one forget immortals with one look indeed. Even if one has never seen Lin Xuanzhi before, one would know who he is with just one glance at him.
Baili Yunhua frowned again and said, puzzled, Isnt he a sword cultivator? Why did he change his profession and started crafting instead?
Bai Cangshus gaze darkened slightly. Have you really been isolated from the world for the past few years?
Yeah. Ive been cultivating arrays in an old forest deep in the mountains and rarely left, so I know nothing about what was happening outside.
Bai Cangshu only said after a long while, Lin Xuanzhis Dantian was destroyed. He awakened his craftsman soulfire, so you could say that he had started halfway.
Baili Yunhuas eyes widened, Hes that amazing?
Bai Cangshu nodded, Very amazing.
Baili Yunhua glanced at Bai Cangshu askance, No matter how amazing he is, he shouldnt be able to match up to you ba?
Thats hard to say. Bai Cangshu turned his head sideways and looked at Baili Yunhua, If you was his younger brother, then youd understand how terrifying his crafting skills now are.
His younger brother? Baili Yunhua asked, What does his younger brother have to do with crafting?
His younger brother is equipped with at least 12 high-grade or top-grade magic tools. Bai Cangshu paused, then looked at Baili Yunhua, Just like you in the past.
Baili Yunhua was stunned at once.
He opened his mouth and wanted to say something, but Bai Cangshu had already turned back to continue spectating the competition. Evidently, he had no intention of continuing the conversation.
Baili Yunhua couldnt help but want to laugh bitterly. In the past he was also equipped with at least a dozen of high-grade and top-grade magic tools that Bai Cangshu had personally crafted.
Within the blink of an eye, three years had passed.
Although he had never seen Lin Xuanzhis younger brother before, Baili Yunhua thought that Lin Xuanzhi must love him a lot.
On the stage, the crafting competition was in full swing.
The craftsmen competition rules were extremely simple. There was no elimination round, only rankings would be determined. After all, every craftsman, no matter their level, was an existence that people respected and yearned for. They couldnt even wait to ingratiate themselves with a craftsman, so no one would even think about eliminating any of them.
In the first round of competition, they had to use the materials that were presented to them by the attendants. Craftsmen needed to select from no less than ten kinds of materials that could be crafted into equipment, and then craft a magic tool.
To ensure that a situation in which crafting would take seven or days would not occur, materials given by the competition each time wouldnt be too high-levelled, but it would be more strange and odd than usual. They would turn into ash if they were just slightly careless, and it was very easy to test how much control craftsmen had over their crafting process.
Lin Xuanzhi just took one look at his materials before he knew that they were used to craft a compass auxiliary tool used to break through hallucination arrays.
No one knew who came up with the theme. But in any case, out of the 25 participants, at least half of them didnt know how to craft it.
