I waited till the next morning before breaking the genjut-- I mean the mental Technique that Dark Sect guy used on the entire Sect.
Why didn't I do it immediately that night?
Hey, I still wanted my sleep ok? If I did that then I'll have to deal with the aftermath, no way I'm gonna do that before bedtime.
Well Since there was a dead body in my bed, I had to go sleep in my disciples' room that night instead.
Needless to say, the girls were ecstatic and there was a lot of fluffing and head patting involved before we finally went to sleep.
When everyone else in the Sect finally snapped out of whatever had been controlling them, the first thing they did was to try and push me for the role of Sect Master after I explained to them what had happened.
It was a rather unanimous decision, all of them pointing out how well my disciples were doing and how I had practically saved the Sect from certain destruction.
And to that, all I had to say was, "Aww hell no."
You guys want me to take up a position that could potentially limit my freedom and swamp me with tons of responsibilities? Definitely a no from me. My disciples are responsibility enough already, thank you very much.
No matter what they used to convince me, I had not budged in my decision in the slightest.
"Master? Why? You would definitely make a good leader! The Sect needs your guidance!" Lian Li would plead to me.
Sorry, but not even my dear disciples will make me change my mind on this.
But of course I couldn't just tell them the real reason why I didn't want to take up the role, my reputation is at stake here!
Instead, I told them, "No, such a big responsibility isn't suitable for me. For a Practitioner as young as me to take up the role of Sect Master That will just make the other Sects look down on us no matter what my accomplishments are. There are already others who are more suitable than I am."
Diao Chan chuckled, "Huhuhu~ If there's any Sect that dares to look down on Master We'll give them a good punishment! I'll spank them good~"
I gave her a good spanking for even suggesting that.
I'll admit that I almost wavered when Cai hong had pulled at my sleeve to look at me with sparkly eyes, "Papa no 'Swect Weeder'?"
Ughhh No! I'm doing this for you Cai Hong! Can't you see? If Papa is busy, then there's less time for headpats! That will be an absolute disaster!
So no, I will definitely not take up that role no matter what everyone else said!
Instead, I pushed Elder Qing forward for that role, nominating him to take up that spot since he was my mentor. Surely the mentor who raised me would make a great candidate right?
Even though he had vehemently rejected the notion, everyone began leaning towards my suggestion after I pressured them a bit.
It wasn't even that hard to be honest. It's not like they can force me to do something I didn't want to do anyway.
Elder Qing still wanted me to be the Sect Master and we debated on that topic for quite a while. He eventually relented after I agreed to assist him whenever he required it.
He's a smart man, so most likely he won't bother me that much and I can just continue with my easy life plans.
So in the end, Elder Qing was named as the new Sect Master of Heaven Sect with the condition that I take up the role of an Advisor for him.
And since I was dealing with this new Sect Master thing the whole day, I gave my disciples some time off for themselves.
I wonder what they're doing right now?
I looked up at the sign above the gate, the words "Xi Family Main House" etched boldly on the wood.
To think we allowed such a pathetic thing to exist for so long and allow them to cause trouble for Master No matter, this will be resolved today.
I stepped past the four headless corpses to enter the main courtyard.
There were a few servants around cleaning the area, a few of them noticing my entrance and stopping their work to watch me.
"Can I help you, madam?" One of them asked.
I chuckled, "Ufufufu~ Oh yes, I'm here to kill everyone. So if you would kindly just die?"
The servant looked confused at what I said but before he could even mouth another word, I had flexed my tails and the man immediately combusted into flames, his screams of agony filling the entire courtyard.
Instead of panicking and running away in fear like normal people might, the other servants immediately dropped their tools and unsheathed swords that they had been hiding under their clothes.
As I thought, they were all Dark Sect members.
"Intruder! Raise the alarm! It's a nine tailed fox youkai!"
Soon, the sound of a bell ringing resounded throughout the entire estate, no doubt in a few more moments, everyone would be rushing here.
That won't be a problem for me since I was here to kill everyone after all.
I waited patiently as more guards showed up, all of them pointing their weapons at me while a few who were obviously Practitioners just stood there with both their hands raised.
Knowing that they were waiting for someone important to arrive, I showed them no hostility and just spent the time to inspect my nails.
I wonder if Master likes my nails red or orange? Hmmm I'll have to ask his opinion later. Preferably while he is submerged in my tail while I fluff him. Ufufufu~ Master should be inducted as the new Sect Master by now, right?
Soon enough, a rather old man with a beard that reached his chest showed up haughtily, his eyes darting towards the now charred body lying by the side of the courtyard. A few of them had tried to put the fire out, but my flames won't be put out without my say so, no matter how many buckets of water of they poured on it.
The old fart glared at me, "Who are you? What do you want?"
"Ufufufu~ I already told all of you what I want. I'm here to kill everyone, it's as simple as that."
"We have no quarrel with you, are you doing this just because of the rumours that we are affiliated with the Dark Sect? If it is, I can assure you that--"
"Ara ara? Are you still denying that truth?" I interrupted him with a laugh. "You don't need to pretend anymore you know? We already know who you guys really are."
He narrowed his eyes at me, "We?"
"Ufufufu~ For you all to have inconvenienced our Master, it truly is our folly to have left you all alive for so long. Ah, at least we have managed to use you to establish a form of business to root itself in this city."
His eyes widened when he realised what I meant, "You! You're a member of that damnable 'Master's Church'! Kill her! Do not hold back!"
Ufufufu~ All for Master!
