Great Heavenly Venerate Rubble’s gaze was fixed on Luo Yunyang. Although he didn’t display his mighty aura, the air of an eighth-level Heavenly Venerate was still far-reaching.
“I’m not afraid to tell you the reason. It is to survive!”
Great Heavenly Venerate Rubble’s words were a tad sorrowful. “Our Patriarch wouldn’t last another Yuanhui.”
A Yuanhui was a very long period of time. For most ordinary human tribes, it was simply a period of time that could only be imagined.
However, for Almighties, especially those from large sects like the Rising Sky Feather Sect, a Yuanhui was too short.
“Without the support of an Almighty, the Rising Sky Feather Sect would be like a piece of meat waiting to be gobbled up.”
“You are sect-less. As long as you enter Hong Meng Sacred Hall, your chances of becoming an Almighty will be very high. Therefore, you are worthy of our selection.”
Luo Yunyang nodded his head gently. He understood Great Heavenly Venerate Rubble’s meaning. After taking a moment to ponder this, Luo Yunyang made his decision.
Although the Rising Sky Feather Sect’s circumstances were the worst, the conditions offered were the best. Even though the other sects rated him highly, Luo Yunyang wasn’t willing to agree to their conditions.
“Alright, I accept!”
After a moment’s hesitation, Luo Yunyang spoke up resolutely.
There was a look of slight sadness on his face as Great Heavenly Venerate Rubble exhaled. He was an eighth-level Heavenly Venerate, yet he had to entrust the fate of his sect to Luo Yunyang, who had yet to even become a Heavenly Venerate. He felt slightly uncomfortable doing so.
“Alright, Yunyang is decisive indeed. Thus, from this day on, you are the Rising Sky Feather Sect’s core disciple.”
As he said that, a token had already appeared in Great Heavenly Venerate Rubble’s hand. “This token is a node that leads to the Rising Sky Feather Sect. Yunyang, you can use this node to enter the Rising Sky Feather Sect. You can take the stuff given to you at any time.”
Luo Yunyang nodded and took the token from Great Heavenly Venerate Rubble. After saying all this, Great Heavenly Venerate Rubble replied, “My disciple, Heavenly Venerate Nong Yue, is outside. Why don’t you two meet?”
Luo Yunyang understood what he meant. However, he really didn’t intend to do that.
“Thank you, Great Heavenly Venerate. However, I don’t wish to be distracted during this period.”
Great Heavenly Venerate Rubble chuckled but didn’t insist. Luo Yunyang had already joined the Rising Sky Feather Sect. There would be many more chances like this. Great Heavenly Venerate Rubble had confidence in his own disciple.
As Great Heavenly Venerate Rubble left, news of Luo Yunyang joining the Rising Sky Feather Sect spread. The majority of the guests that wished to pull Luo Yunyang into their respective sects chose to leave upon discovering that Luo Yunyang had already made his choice.
Although Luo Yunyang was rather valuable in their eyes, these large sects had many choices.
They might feel regret about Luo Yunyang’s decision, but they didn’t have to recruit him at all costs.
Great Heavenly Venerate Astonishing Sky and Great Heavenly Venerate Longxiang exchanged complicated looks when they heard that Luo Yunyang had joined the Rising Sky Feather Sect.
There were no longer any others waiting, so the two of them walked over to the Bloody Blade Monarch, who was in charge of receiving guests. However, the Bloody Blade Monarch told them apologetically that Luo Yunyang wouldn’t be seeing anyone!
The reason could be summed up in just one word——busy. He was busy.
Great Heavenly Venerate Longxiang looked slightly bitter. He felt a little upset at Luo Yunyang for not showing them any respect by acting in this manner.
However, he could only swallow his anger. Luo Yunyang enjoyed the protection of Hong Meng Sacred Hall now, so even an Almighty wouldn’t dare do anything to him. Furthermore, the Rising Sky Feather Sect that Luo Yunyang had just joined could obliterate him at any time.
While Great Heavenly Venerate Astonishing Sky didn’t look too happy, this was just an act he put on for Great Heavenly Venerate Longxiang.
He knew that the reason he had received this sort of treatment was mainly because he had come with Great Heavenly Venerate Longxiang.
He should probably be able to see Luo Yunyang once he came to visit on his own.
“So what if he entered Hong Meng Sacred Hall? Even though Hong Meng Sacred Hall can groom Almighties, they only manage to nurture one or two Almighties each time at best.”
“Most of the others fall!” Great Heavenly Venerate Longxiang said sourly as they left the Immortal Lake Star.
He was infuriated by Luo Yunyang’s cold-shoulder treatment, so his words were filled with bitterness.
Great Heavenly Venerate Astonishing Sky didn’t say a thing. However, he knew that what Great Heavenly Venerate Longxiang had said was the truth. Otherwise, he wouldn’t have come along with Great Heavenly Venerate Longxiang to call on Luo Yunyang.
However, he didn’t comment on the words of Great Heavenly Venerate Longxiang.
Although Luo Yunyang didn’t see Great Heavenly Venerate Astonishing Sky, he still met with an attendant from Hong Meng Sacred Hall through the Hong Mong Realm.
Or rather, this attendant contacted Luo Yunyang voluntarily.
“Mr. Luo, Hong Meng Sacred Hall Elders have already determined that you are amongst the ten strongest candidates. After the third round of selection matches, you will immediately receive the status of a junior student of Hong Meng Sacred Hall.”
This attendant, who was clad in golden armor, said cheerfully, “Because you are one of the most powerful candidates, you have the right to decide who your opponent in the next fight shall be.”
He would be choosing the next opponent?
Luo Yunyang glanced at the attendant and said with a faint smile, “Was it like this the last two times, when I was selected as an opponent by others?”
The attendant replied with a smile, “Mr. Luo, your guess is correct. However, I fear that Yin Yang Zongzi feels remorse about selecting you as his opponent!”
Luo Yunyang didn’t have a favorable opinion of Yin Yang Zongzi. Thus, he didn’t care whether Yin Yang Zongzi felt remorse or not.
He glanced at the attendant in the golden armor and asked, “Do you have any recommendations on who my opponent should be?”
“This is information on all the participants. You can take your pick, Mr. Luo Yunyang.” The attendant in the golden armor placed a set of information in the void. Luo Yunyang appeared slightly delighted when he saw this set of information.
He tapped on one of the images that had condensed in the air. “I want him then!”
In the Three Era Supreme Sect, Profound Calm Zongzi was currently cultivating in a lotus position. He had just been comprehending something rather profound.
“Congratulations, Senior Brother. You rank 32nd on Hong Meng Sacred Hall’s list. You will definitely be entering Hong Meng Sacred Hall,” someone said loudly as Profound Calm Zongzi left his training chamber.
Profound Calm Zongzi felt rather happy about being congratulated. However, he acted as if he wasn’t fazed.
Although the Three Era Supreme Sect was a large sect, it was nothing in the face of Hong Meng Sacred Hall. In all these years, not a single person out of hundreds of Three Era Supreme Sect Zongzis had managed to enter Hong Meng Sacred Hall.
Thus, the entire Three Era Supreme Sect viewed the possibility of Profound Calm Zongzi entering Hong Meng Sacred Hall with great importance. Even the Immeasurable Sacred Mountain had gotten people to sent over various treasured resources for Profound Calm Zongzi to use.
However, what displeased Profound Calm Zongzi was Luo Yunyang. Luo Yunyang, who had stolen an ultimate treasure of the Three Era Supreme Sect, had actually become the number one seeded candidate amongst those who had a chance of entering Hong Meng Sacred Hall. This obviously displeased him tremendously.
If it had not been for the fact that Hong Meng Sacred Hall’s might wasn’t to be trifled with, the Three Era Supreme Sect would have charged towards the Purple Cloud Cosmos long ago. However, even though Eternal Sacred Mountain Sect Master was filled with resentment, all he could do was watch.
“Luo Yunyang, after entering Hong Meng Sacred Hall, I will make you pay the debt you owe me.” Profound Calm Zongzi clenched his fist and muttered resolutely.
Although Luo Yunyang’s performance had been astonishing, Profound Calm Zongzi also had his own advantages. The Three Era Supreme Sect’s three supreme scriptures actually continued with a technique from Hong Meng Sacred Hall.
The two complemented one another. Profound Calm Zongzi was confident that his cultivation base would rapidly improve if he made it into Hong Meng Sacred Hall.
After calling on his master, Profound Calm Zongzi quickly entered the Hong Meng Realm. Because of the seedings, he was concerned about the draw for his next match.
I don’t want to meet any of the top 10 seeded fellows!
Profound Calm Zongzi wished this in his heart and quickly visited the page for Hong Meng Sacred Hall’s selection matches. When he saw his own name on the first line, he felt his entire head buzz.
Being placed in the first row generally meant that the person’s strength was well-respected. Although his strength ranked 32nd, it was still a far cry from the first row.
His eyes rapidly darted to his opponent. The name Luo Yunyang appeared. Profound Calm Zongzi felt his limbs turn slightly numb when he saw this name.
Before the Hong Meng Sacred Hall selection, Profound Calm Zongzi had been itching to lay his hands on Luo Yunyang and get revenge. However, the opponent Profound Calm Zongzi least wanted to see right now was Luo Yunyang.
He wasn’t a match for Yin Yang Zongzi, so he naturally wouldn’t be a match for Luo Yunyang.
After inhaling sharply, Profound Calm Zongzi went to contact his master and report this matter.
Buddha Sacred Mountain Sect Master, who placed great importance on this issue, didn’t say anything. He just contacted the Patriarch of his own sect.
In just a moment, Buddha Sacred Mountain Sect Master had appeared in front of his disciple with a dark face.
“The Patriarch understands that Luo Yunyang has chosen you to be his opponent.” Buddha Sacred Mountain Sect Master’s voice was pained. “This can no longer be changed!”
Luo Yunyang had chosen him. Profound Calm Zongzi had a disgusted look on his face as he rambled somewhat maniacally. “Luo Yunyang is taking this opportunity to get revenge. Master, we can’t let him prevail!”
Profound Calm Zongzi, who always kept his cool, was now in this state. As Buddha Sacred Mountain Sect Master glanced at his disciple, he could only sigh silently.
