“What? Elder Wen…” Yuyin Zi was taken aback, then she glanced at Jia Lan with hesitation.
Seeing this, Jia Lan’s heart sank to the bottom; a trace of sadness flashed in her beautiful eyes.
“We will of course give face to Master’s Senior Wen, but since Jia Lan and Liu Ming have already had an agreement of dual cultivation, according to the information I have received, Liu Ming is not only an apprentice of Fallen Serene Peak’s Yin Jiuling, but he is also favored by Sect Master Immortal Tian. Sect Master even nominated him to participate in the Tianmen Convention. If Nephew Disciple Wen must marry Jia Lan, he must prove himself to be worthy of her.” Tianyin Shangren suddenly said faintly.
“This…” Luo Yuan’s expression also became more solemn after hearing this.
Tianyin Shangren’s slightly cold voice lifted Jia Lan’s spirit instantly. After contemplating quickly, she said with great determination,
“If Senior Fellow Apprentice Wen really wants to marry me, disciple is willing to give him a chance. As long as Senior Fellow Apprentice Wen can defeat little girl, I will go to Fallen Serene Peak personally and break the dual cultivation agreement with Senior Fellow Apprentice Liu. But if you can’t beat me, we will forget about this matter.”
Wen An was overjoyed when he heard the words. As he was about to walk forward confidently, his master glared at him.
Then Luo Yuan said faintly to Jia Lan,
“Nephew Disciple Jia Lan, do you really want to do this? Wen An’s entry to our sect is much shorter than you. I’m afraid it’s not a fair fight.”
With his eyesight, he naturally noticed that Jia Lan’s cultivation was a bit higher than Wen An’s. If the 2 really fought, Wen An’s chances of winning were not great.
“This is a small request from disciple to future husband, and it is also my final concession.” Jia Lan shook her head with a resolute face.
“2 senior sister apprentices, what do you think of this matter?” Luo Yuan pondered slightly, then he looked at Tianyin Shangren and Yuyin Zi again.
Yuyin Zi and Tianyin Shangren looked at each other.
After all, Jia Lan was a disciple of the Piaomiao Peak and because Immortal Tian Ge was involved, they couldn’t force it too much.
“The request made by Jia Lan is not too much. We cultivators should speak with strength.” Yuyin Zi finally coughed lightly and said.
After Tianyin Shangren thought slightly, she also nodded, apparently tacitly acquiescing to this.
“Since the 2 senior sister apprentices also agree to decide this matter with a match, I have no opinion. However, why don’t we change the way of the match? They can invite another disciple of the same generation who has a close relationship with them to have a 2 vs 2 match, how about that?” Luo Yuan frowned when he heard the words, but he suddenly suggested so.
Tianyin Shangren and Yuyin Zi were shocked again when they heard this!
If they both sought help from their peers, Jia Lan would definitely go to Liu Ming, which was a good idea.
If Liu Ming lost in the match, he could only be blamed for his lack of strength. There was no reason to blame the Piaomiao Peak.
But if Wen An lost…
“2 senior sister apprentices, no matter if my Illusion Vanish Peak wins or loses this time, the benefits I promised just now will be honored.” Luo Yuan immediately flicked his sleeves and said boldly after seeing Yuyin Zi’s hesitation.
“Oh, is Junior Fellow Apprentice Luo sure about this?” Tianyin Shangren was surprised.
“Of course, in front of the 2 senior sister apprentices, will the junior make false claims?” Luo Yuan said without thinking.
“It seems that the junior fellow apprentice is very confident in this match. Okay, then it’s decided.” Tianyin Shangren and Yuyin Zi talked with each other immediately, then she made a decision with a chuckle.
Seeing Luo Yuan’s confident look, Jia Lan couldn’t help feeling up and down again. But this proposal was made by her, she couldn’t say anything to change it at this point.
Next, under the witness of the 3 elders, the match between Jia Lan and Wen An was set at half a month later, and the location was on Piaomiao Peak.
“By the way, Zhang Zuo is so confident, have you already figured out a candidate?” Yuyin Zi suddenly thought of something in the end, and she couldn’t help but ask.
“En, there is indeed a suitable candidate. A senior disciple who has been in seclusion for more than a hundred years in the Plague Curse Peak; he has the title of ‘Ten Curses Annihilation’. He just finished his seclusion last month, and this person is my disciple’s cousin.” Luo Yuan yawned and said.
“What, this person?” Tianyin Shangren and Yuyin Zi’s expressions changed greatly when they heard this.
Although Jia Lan didn’t recognize Wen Zeng, she was still stunned upon seeing their expressions.
At this time, Yuyin Zi turned her head and told her disciple some stories about the Plague Curse Peak and Wen Zeng.
As a result, Jia Lan became more startled as she listened. Her face that had just recovered became pale again.
The Plague Curse Peak was a very unique mountain in the inner door of the Taiqing Sect. It specialized in curses and witchcrafts. Due to the technique their disciples practiced, they mostly had abnormal temperaments. Especially this Wen Zeng, not only he had extraordinary strength, his method was also extremely cruel.
It was said that when this person was still in the intermediate stage of the Crystallization Period, he was ordered by his master to go to the extreme north of the Middle Sky Continent with another disciple. They went to the sphere of influence of an evil sect, that had a Real Pellet State powerhouse in it, to investigate a case of the destruction of a dependent family.
After some investigations, the 2 of them had sufficient evidence to prove that this matter was done by members of the evil sect.
As a result, Wen Hu ignored the dissuasion of another disciple and went to the evil sect to demand justice. The elder of the Real Pellet State early stage of course wouldn’t admit it, so they fought directly.
However, what was unexpected was that Wen Hu actually used some kind of strange curse to to battle against the elder for 3 days and 3 nights. In the end, he killed the opponent with curses. The elder’s body and soul were completely annihilated from the world.
Afterward, he simply went on a slaughter and almost bloodbathed the entire evil sect.
After a fight, nearly a hundred disciples escaped to a small mortal city nearby.
But the bloodthirsty Wen Hu directly laid an array outside the city, cursing all the mortals and evil cultivators in the city to death. The city was like a purgatory on earth.
As soon as this matter was passed back, it caused an uproar in the Taiqing Sect. As a result, after a round of debate between the master of the Plague Curse Peak and the law enforcement hall, they deducted his crime with his merit. He was forbidden to step out of the sect for 30 years, which dumbfounded everyone.
If someone else made such an immoral move, his cultivation would either be abolished directly or he would be imprisoned in the Five Mountains Bipolar Hell for a hundred years.
Just when Jia Lan regretted it, Luo Yuan glanced at the change in Jia Lan’s expression. He bade farewell to Tianyin Shangren with a smile and left with Wen An.
“Master, Peak Master, disciple will also step down first.” After Jia Lan bowed to Yuyin Zi with an unsightly expression, she left the main hall with a lost mind.
“She is really aggrieved this time.” Yuyin Zi said with a sad expression after seeing Jia Lan disappeared at the door.
“The benefits that Luo Yuan proposed are so great that you and I can’t refuse it at all. However, do you think this Liu Ming can have a chance to win against Wen Zeng?” Tianyin Shangbian sighed, and she suddenly asked such a question.
“Although Liu Ming had fought with Luo Tiancheng with an even result and Luo Tiancheng has far more potential than Wen Zeng, the cultivation time he has is too short. They can’t be compared at all.” Although Yuyin Zi did not answer the question directly, the meaning of the words was self-evident.
The second morning.
In front of Liu Ming’s cave house, a dim purple light came and stopped in the air above the cave house.
With the mist rising in the morning, there were faint ripples, and a blue silhouette floated down from the purple light.
It was Jia Lan!
This girl stood in front of Liu Ming’s cave house. After hesitating for a while, she finally knocked on the door lightly.
“Junior Sister Apprentice Jia Lan?” The door opened with a creak. Liu Ming, dressed in a black robe, walked out and blurted out when he saw the person at the door.
“Senior Fellow Apprentice Liu, it’s been a long time, am I not welcome?” Jia Lan smiled.
“I just really didn’t expect that the junior sister apprentice would visit suddenly. I naturally welcome you.” Liu Ming was a little strange, but he still looked the same on his face. He turned sideways and let Jia Lan into the cave house and closed the door.
After a while, in the cave house lobby.
“My house is a bit crude. Junior Sister Apprentice Jia Lan, please don’t feel strange about it.” Liu Ming smiled.
He almost had no guests in normal times. The living room was extremely simple. There was only a stone table, a tea table and a few mahogany chairs, which looked a little empty.
“When I was in the Savage Ghost Sect, Senior Fellow Apprentice Liu had been cultivating painstakingly. I have really admired you since then.” Jia Lan shook her head and said admiringly.
“Oh? Junior sister apprentice has recovered your memory?” Liu Ming asked with a move in his mind.
“In the past few years, I have been practicing a mystic art together with my master, and my memory has recovered slightly. When in the Savage Ghost Sect, Brother Liu saved me several times.” Jia Lan’s cheeks were slightly red as she said softly.
“That’s all things in the past. It’s best that junior sister apprentice can restore your memory.” Seeing that Jia Lan could restore previous memory, Liu Ming also showed a hint of joy.
When she was in the Yunchuan Continent and Bieyuan Island, this woman had betrayed the Savage Ghost Sect because she had half of the blood of the Sea Creature Clan. When the 2 came to the Middle Sky Continent and joined Taiqing Sect together, he learned that Sea Creature Clan was also regarded as a branch of the human race, and this woman was also the only old acquaintance from the Yunchuan Continent, so the original grudge naturally disappeared.
Although the 2 have only met a few times in the sect, there was always a close feeling between them.
“Brother Liu, in fact, I came here because I have 1 request.” After sitting down, she sat down, blinked her beautiful eyes and suddenly said while biting her red lips.
“Oh, junior sister apprentice can just say it.” Liu Ming squinted upon hearing this.
TL: If Liu Ming wins, won’t he get a wife for free?
