In the Embryonic Breathing realm, there was a vast difference between the levels. One in the intermediate stage of the Embryonic Breathing realm was much stronger than one in the beginning stage of the Embryonic Breathing realm, not to mention the acme of Embryonic Breathing realm.
However, Mo Wen was reckoned to be one without the Cultivation of the Embryonic Breathing realm. How could he be compared to an expert in the acme of the Embryonic Breathing realm? It would be a joke for him to fight the Qin Clan; the ignorant are usually fearless.
"Does the Qin Clan have anybody in the Embryonic Breathing realm?"
Mo Wen smiled. Since there weren't any experts in the Embryonic Breathing realm, the Qin Clan was just as it was. In terms of strength, it paled in comparison to the Changtian Sect.
"There isn't anybody in the Embryonic Breathing realm, but you can't contend against them unless you have some backers," Dongfang Yi rolled his eyes and advised.
It seemed like he didn't think much of the Qin Clan since they didn't have any tip-top experts in the Embryonic Breathing realm. That was a little too arrogant.
Unless Mo Wen had the backing of some influences, he would dare not to think much of the Qin Clan. According to what he knew, Mo Wen didn't seem to have the backing of any influence; at least he didn't find out about it.
Qin Clan had an old fellow in the acme of Embryonic Breathing realm. He was their signature that was enough to allow the Qin Clan to be listed as one of the aristocratic families of the five big ancient martial arts families in the Capital.
Whether Mo Wen was able to counter the ancient martial arts practitioner in the Intermediate stage of Embryonic Breathing realm was still an uncertainty, not to mention the old fellow in the Qin Clan.
"What form do the five big ancient martial arts clans in the Capital exist in? Do they have experts in the Embryonic Breathing realm?" Mo Wen raised his brows and asked.
The ancient martial arts aristocratic families in the secular world and the ancient martial art sects hidden in the deep mountains and virgin forests seemed to have some differences. The ancient martial art sects rarely had contact with the outside world, but the ancient martial arts aristocratic families were almost rooted to the secular world.
In control of the resources and influences in the secular world, they were involved in almost every trade and industry such as the business world and the political arena.
According to Wang Huiru, Qin Clan was a clan that had its own business group and had connections and influences in both military and political arenas in the country.
Compared to the ancient martial art sects hidden in the deep mountains and virgin forests, Mo Wen thought that he would be easily involved in some ways with the ancient martial art aristocratic families rooted in the secular world. After all, he didn't live in the deep mountains and virgin forests, but in the city outside.
Therefore, there was a need to understand these ancient martial arts aristocratic families. The more he knew about them, naturally the less he would be taken advantage of.
For instance, the Changtian Sect, which was rooted in the deep Changbai Mountain range and seldom in contact with the outside, did not have the assets and influence outside. The most they would have was a representative in the secular world.Therefore, they naturally wouldn't have much conflicts with him. Although he had offended the Changtian Sect, it wouldn't be an easy task for the Changtian Sect to find him.
"Among the ancient martial arts aristocratic families, though some of people in the Clan practise ancient martial arts, but they are not pure ancient martial arts influences.In the Clan, other than those family members with enough talents will be practising, there are also many family members who are unable to practise and have to develop in the secular world.Hence, compared to the pure ancient martial arts influence, they can only be considered half ancient martial arts influence."
Dongfang Yi muttered hesitantly and explained slowly, "Capital, a place where the emperor used to reside, had a complex involvement of influences and was also a place where many ancient martial arts aristocratic families were rooted.As for the five big ancient martial arts aristocratic families, they were the strongest five ancient martial arts Clans in the Capital region which surpassed those normal ancient martial arts aristocratic families."
"Regarding whether they have any expert in the Embryonic Breathing realm, there was indeed one in those Capital's five big ancient martial arts aristocratic families.The previous generation Clan Leader of Bi Clan, which was ranked number one among the five big ancient martial arts aristocratic families, was an expert in the beginning stage of Embryonic Breathing realm.He could be said to be the strongest expert among the ancient martial arts aristocratic families in the Capital."
"However, as a whole, the ancient martial arts aristocratic families were not highly positioned in the ancient martial arts world as half of their efforts were put into their operation of their influences in the secular world, so they were not outstanding in terms of ancient martial arts."
Mo Wen could understand Dongfang Yi's explanation.Those ancient martial arts Sects in the deep mountains and virgin forests concentrated solely on practising without distractions.They had the habit of practising hard since young and naturally would have the achievements way higher than those outside.
However, those ancient martial arts aristocratic families in the secular world had too many involvements in many matters in the outside world with many distractions.Under such influence, very few people would practise hard so those ancient martial arts aristocratic families wouldn't produce many experts but a bunch of hedonistic younger generations.
For instance, the Gu Clan Fort at Yuntai Mountain and Zhou Clan Manor, their overall strength weren't strong and had only one ancient martial arts practitioner in the Beginning stage of the Qi Nucleation realm, yet they were able to be self-proclaimed as Kings or Lords and reigned over that area.
Honestly, in this region, there was no real ancient martial arts Sect so in the land of the blind, the one-eyed man was king.
"I think you know about the different strains of the ancient martial arts practitioners.Those ancient martial arts aristocratic families which usually present in the secular world are considered as open ancient martial arts influence while those ancient martial arts Sects in the deep mountains and virgin forests which rarely contact with the outside world belong to the closed ancient martial arts influence.However, there is another kind of ancient martial arts influence which totally isolates from the outside world.They have no contact with the outside world for tens of years or even hundreds of years, which belong to the hidden ancient martial arts influence.The people in there live in the Shangri-la and rarely anyone knows about their situation."
"Therefore, those closed ancient martial arts influences are usually stronger than the open ancient martial arts aristocratic families and they are the main part of the ancient martial arts world while those hidden ancient martial arts influences which exist only in the legends are basically not taken into consideration as very few people know about their strength."
"However, there is always exception to everything.For instance, the eight big ancient martial arts aristocratic families in the ancient martial arts world were not inferior to the ancient martial arts Sects and even stronger than some of the ancient martial arts Sects as almost all the eight big ancient martial arts aristocratic families have tiptop experts in the Embryonic Breathing realm overseeing them.Bi Clan, the leader among the five ancient martial arts aristocratic families, was one of the eight big ancient martial arts aristocratic families in the ancient martial arts world but was the most inferior one."
Dongfang Yi explained to Mo Wen about the situation in the ancient martial arts world systematically.He discovered long ago that Mo Wen seemed to be illiterate in the ancient martial arts world and didn't seem to know anything or else it was impossible not to have little understanding about the five big ancient martial arts aristocratic families in the Capital.
After hearing his explanation, Mo Wen nodded with some clear understanding.As such, only the eight big ancient martial arts aristocratic families in the ancient martial arts world were threats to him and as for the ancient martial arts aristocratic families in the Capital, only Bi Clan would be a threat to him.
With his present Cultivation of Qi Nucleation realm, those normal ancient martial arts practitioners in the Qi Nucleation realm were almost impossible to be his match, even those in acme of Qi Nucleation realm would find it difficult to contend against him.Now, only those martial arts practitioners in the Embryonic Breathing realm could be a threat to him.
Upon comparison, Mo Wen had a grasp of the situation."
"How do you intend to deal with the people of Qin Clan?"
Dongfang Yi raised his brows and asked.He knew that person from Qin Clan had already found Qin Xiaoyou so he would be confronted by Mo Wen undoubtedly and with Mo Wen's temperament, this matter wouldn't be easily settled.
With Mo Wen's present strength, he was basically unable to contend against the Qin Clan, what would he do by then?
However, Mo Wen had joined Huatian Palace now and was a member of the Vermilion Bird Palace Hall so when Qin Clan knew about this, they naturally would not make things difficult for Mo Wen.However, in this way, Huatian Palace would definitely not able to help Mo Wen after receiving such goodwill.As Mo Wen didn't have the honour to be helped, he might have difficulty trying to save Qin Xiaoyou.
"What could I do?"
Mo Wen smiled without commenting further, "Your mission is completed.You can leave this matter alone."
"You behave accordingly then."
Dongfang Yi's lips twitched a bit.His mission is over? Sounds like he was his supervisor.Totally shameless.It was he who forced him and now claimed that it was a mission.
"This is your remuneration for helping me for the past few times."
Mo Wen threw a milky-white pill to Dongfang Yi casually, then he turned around and walked out of his room.Since Dongfang Yi had helped him, he naturally wouldn't forget such favor.That milky-white pill was Vigor Consolidating Pill which was the product of this Changbai Mountain trip.
A Vigor Consolidating Pill's effect was enough to let Dongfang Yi to break through from the Intermediate stage of Sea of Qi realm to the later stage of Sea of Qi realm and if his aptitude was high enough, perhaps he could go higher.
A Vigor Consolidating Pill in the eyes of an ancient martial arts practitioner was priceless and invaluable.The help from Dongfang Yi and this Vigor Consolidating Pill were incomparable so he would definitely look for him in the future if there was anything.
He concocted five Vigor Consolidating Pills of which he had taken one for himself, which was enough as it was pointless to have more.As for Demoness Gong with her Cultivation, it would be as if she had not taken at all, absolutely ineffective.
Hence, he gave one to Dongfang Yi.He was not being stingy, it was redundant in his hands anyway, now he still had the Flame Flower, Blood Mushroom and other spiritual medicines, so he might concoct better pills and even a panacea.
After walking out of the dormitory, Mo Wen went to Shen Jing's home.At this time, there was basically no class so Shen Jing was most probably at home.
He knocked and indeed very soon someone opened the door.
"Mo Wen, you are finally willing to be back?"
Once Shen Jing saw Mo Wen, she was furious instantly and her fury surged in her unknowingly.He left for ten days while he originally said that he would take at most seven days.
"Met with some matter, a very small matter."
Mo Wen managed an awkward laugh and pulled the door open, then brushed aside the hand of Shen Jing which was blocking the door and dodged into the house.
Shen Jing's face went cold and slammed the door closed.With a sullen face, she sat onto the sofa, looked at the wall in front of her sulkily and refused to look or talk to Mo Wen.
"Er.Miss Shen Jing has become more beautiful after not seeing you for a few days."
Mo Wen smiled awkwardly and tried to find something to talk about.He didn't know why Shen Jing was cantankerous for no reason as he was only late for a few days.
Now, he could identify with that statement: Women would have a few days of abnormality every month.
"The school approved your seven days' leave but you left for ten days.What should we do when the faculty audit team is to find out that you have played truant and will the deduct points from the class?"
Shen Jing snorted coldly.If she didn't ask someone in the faculty to intercede, Mo Wen, being someone who played truant regularly, would not be completing the credits for this term and would never be able to graduate in the future.
"So, points were deducted. No issue, I will add them back for you later."
Mo Wen's mind was thinking if he should have "a chat" with the leader in this faculty and add back those points that were deducted.
"Add them back? How are you going to add them back for me?"
Shen Jing glared angrily at Mo Wen.The class attendance points were a determinant in the overall awarding of Excellent class and was linked to her reputation of being the Excellent mentor.With such a student like Mo Wen, how would she be selected as the Excellent mentor leading the Excellent class?
Not mentioning about her love life, she was already annoyed enough with Mo Wen this bastard around.In terms of job now, she was unable to work properly due to him.Especially when he actually disappeared for more than ten days without a sign of him at all.
