At Di Lin's residence within the core disciples' residential area, a large number of people had gathered. They were here because the leader of the Di Alliance, Di Lin, had completed his cultivation session at a unique cultivation zone. When he first arrived at the Dragon Phoenix Academy, he was only a ninth-stage Skysoar Realm cultivator. With that strength, it was almost impossible to get on the Dragon Phoenix List.
But he had subsequently become a personal disciple of a previous generation elder. In less than half a year, he reached second-stage Dragon Ascension Realm. His new cultivation base, coupled with his high-grade eight-star physique, allowed him to finally enter the Dragon Phoenix List.
It had been more than a year since he had joined the academy, and he had now reached third-stage Dragon Ascension Realm. His growth had been rapid. Without a doubt, the previous generation elder had exhausted a lot of resources on him. Otherwise, he wouldn't have been able to grow so quickly.
Of course, growing fast had its downside as well. His foundations weren't exactly stable, and if he did not pause his growth to temper his foundations, his future growth would be adversely affected.
Di Lin understood that, so he ended his cultivation session so that he could temper himself and stabilize his foundations before doing anything else. Little had he expected to hear from his elder brother about Xiang Shaoyun the moment he left seclusion. His face turned ghastly as he listened.
His master had told him that Xiang Shaoyun wouldn't have any future due to cultivating nine powers, causing him to ease his worry somewhat toward this nemesis of his. Even so, when he heard his elder brother talking about what Xiang Shaoyun had done, he still did not feel happy.
"Noted. For now, get some people to monitor him closely. The moment he leaves the academy, find a chance to kill him and end this hidden threat once and for all," said Di Lin with a sharp glint in his eyes.
"But since he has his nether prison devil puppet, we're not strong enough to do anything to him," said Di Shang.
"You don't have to be bothered about that. I will think of something," said Di Lin. "Eighth brother, can you get seventh brother here? A great opportunity might appear for us soon. We should get ready for it."
"There's something good coming our way? Ok, I'll go look for him," said Di Shang cheerily.
After drinking for a bit with Huang Tianji and Huang Xiaoyue, Xiang Shaoyun separated from them. Huang Tianji had also hinted at his interest to recruit Xiang Shaoyun, but the attempt was completely ignored. Xiang Shaoyun made his position very clear about the recruitment.
Huang Tianji could see that Xiang Shaoyun wasn't one to submit under anyone. Thus, he stopped persisting. He even warned Huang Xiaoyue to stop creating trouble for Xiang Shaoyun, and he did so right in front of Xiang Shaoyun. Naturally, Huang Xiaoyue was unhappy about it and sat there pouting sullenly.
After Xiang Shaoyun left, Huang Tianji spoke softly to Huang Xiaoyue, "Imperial sister, although his physique is decent, he cultivates nine different powers. He won't have a bright future. Why are you even looking for him?"
"Hmph. I only find him pleasing to the eye," said Huang Xiaoyue.
"Imperial sister, are you lying to even your imperial brother?" said Huang Tianji as he lightly knocked Huang Xiaoyue's head in a doting manner.
Others would think that Huang Xiaoyue was pure and innocent, but Huang Tianji did not share that opinion. In fact, this little girl was extremely wily and had a smart brain. Most people were merely tricked by her appearance.
A crafty look appeared on her face as she said, "I have a feeling he can create a miracle."
Huang Tianji's face shifted as he asked solemnly, "Are you certain?"
"Of course not. It's only an intuition. You know me, imperial brother. My intuition has always been accurate. That is why I tried recruiting him. Alas, that scoundrel actually refused! It's so infuriating!" Huang Xiaoyue said.
Huang Tianji sank into silent contemplation. This was something that could shock the entire dominion. Fortunately, Huang Xiaoyue was merely relying on her intuition. Thus, even if news of what she said spread, not many people would believe her. But for Huang Tianji, her intuition was something worth taking seriously.
As Huang Xiaoyue herself had said, her intuition had always been accurate. Things she sensed had mostly turned out to be true. The Dusk Dynasty called her intuition a talent of prophecy, and it was an extremely rare talent.
"Looks like in the future we will have to get off our high horse and properly befriend this Young Master Xiang," said Huang Tianji with a sigh.
"Let me deal with him! I will definitely be able to make him mine!" Huang Xiaoyue was eager to try.
"You're confident you can subdue him?" Huang Tianji asked.
Huang Xiaoyue shook her head, but a bright look covered her face as she said, "I'm not confident, but this only makes things interesting and challenging!"
"Forget it. It's better you don't bite off more than you can chew. I don't want the dynasty to suddenly obtain a dreadful enemy because of this," said Huang Tianji.
After leaving Huang Tianji and Huang Xiaoyue, Xiang Shaoyun went straight to Lady Shura's villa. He already considered Lady Shura his woman. She had been in seclusion for a month, and he wondered if she had successfully broken through. When he arrived, Lady Shura came out to welcome him. She still wore the same mask, but her eyes were gleaming with a bright luster. She wore revealing armor, accentuating her seductive, alluring figure.
When Xiang Shaoyun swept his gaze over, joy covered his face, and he said, "Looks like you have successfully broken through."
"Yes. Finally. But of course, there is still a clear gap between me and the others," said Lady Shura.
"You don't have to worry about that. We have plenty of time. It's better to build a solid foundation for now. When you eventually use the gold lotus, you will be able to erase the gap," said Xiang Shaoyun.
After leading Xiang Shaoyun into the villa, Lady Shura said, "I plan to take some missions to earn contribution points."
"That sounds good. You should look for Brother Tang and the others as well. Maybe they have the same thought, and we can all go together," said Xiang Shaoyun.
In truth, he had the same thought as well. Although he could earn a lot of contribution points fighting on the ring, he felt like it was time he left and experienced a different environment to further temper his mentality. His current focus should be to reach the Dragon Ascension Realm.
The two immediately acted on their words and went looking for Tang Longfei and Ning Wenhuang. The two agreed after hearing about the reason for their visit. They also needed contribution points. Thus, it was time for them to take some missions, and together, the group headed to the place where missions were assigned within the academy.
The place where all sorts of missions were given out was known as the Missions Hall. The missions offered were of numerous difficulties, and naturally, their rewards were different.Previous Chapter Next Chapter
