“Who’s this? Why is he so arrogant?” asked someone.
“You don’t even know who he is? He’s Ye Xiwen of the Tibetan Star Summit!”
“Si, so he’s that Ye Xiwen. He’s truly a terrifying person. Although we’re quite some distance apart, I can still feel a strong oppression coming from him. I almost couldn’t catch my breath!”
“I know, right. He’s truly extremely terrifying. According to rumours, he had already killed a few Half-step Transcendent Realm experts many years ago. Now that he had cultivated in close cultivation for thirty years, who knows how strong he is now!”
“It’s impossible, right? No matter what, it’s just thirty years. Even if the school were to nurture him with utmost priority, he shouldn’t have such a terrifying advancement, right?” said that person filled with doubt.
“You’ll get it if you look at the amount of time he cultivated. Until now, it’s only been more than a hundred years. What were we doing when we were a hundred years old? We were merely standing out more than average. Even so, we were already regarded as prodigies. As for Half-step Transcendent Realm experts, they are legendary figures that we’ve never met before. According to rumours, he is going to be the next-in-line Tibetan Star Son. He would definitely be a huge figure within our school. In fact, the new School Master – Huang Wuji is his senior brother. What’s wrong with him being a little arrogant?”
“Indeed. I saw his attacks thirty years ago during the war. However, he isn’t this terrifying during that time. His strength has increased tremendously throughout the past thirty years!”
“Why do I feel like he’s only a Great Sage? He doesn’t seem like a Half-step Transcendent Realm. Are the rumours mistaken?”
“How is that possible? We don’t even have the qualifications to raise our heads to look at such an expert. It’s normal for you to be unable to see through his cultivation. If even you could tell, that would be the impossible matter!”
Everyone’s discussions were heard by Ye Xiwen. However, he chose to ignore them. It had been thirty years. Within the past thirty years, he had finally entered the Great Sage Great Perfection. For him, this was an extremely important realm. This was the end of the Great Sage Realm, and the start of the Transcendent Realm. It was the realm that would open up a completely new world to him. In this realm, the sturdier the foundations, the higher his future accomplishments would be. In fact, entering the Transcendent Realm would be much easier later on.
He knew that even the tallest buildings would require a sturdy foundation. Compared to thirty years ago, his strength experienced a tremendous growth. Based on his progress, it was naturally incomparable to the ten years of warfare he had gone through. During that particular ten years, he was always fighting with his life on the line. He used all sorts of methods he had in order to survive, and kill more enemies.
However, his accomplishments within the past thirty years didn’t pale in comparison to those ten years either. He wasn’t able to digest all the insights he had acquired throughout the ten years or warfare. During the past thirty years, he had been patching up all the flaws in his cultivation one by one. He only broke through after he completely patched up everything. Naturally, it was to prevent leaving a flaw within, and ensuring the stability of his cultivation’s foundations.
He had experienced the benefits of building a sturdy foundation. It allowed him to challenge someone above his cultivation realm.
In the past thirty years, he and the Star Beast Avatar had been in close cultivation. They continuously studied the spirit remains of the Emergence School Leader, and studied all the information regarding the cultivation realm. He used the mysterious space to study every usable information contained within. After continuous close cultivation, he was only one step away from entering the Transcendent Realm. Only a tiny bit of progress was needed for his ascension.
With the extremely strong innate powers and the innate bloodline of the Star Beast Avatar, his combat prowess when fighting a Transcendent Realm expert would increase tremendously. His original body wouldn’t have such an advantage.
Of course, if his original body broke through via the cultivation of the Tyrant Body, he would naturally put effort in nurturing it. Besides, the Tianyuan Mirror had also reached its final phase of transformation. Very soon, it would complete its breakthrough, and become a Transcendent Tool. With it, it would become one of Ye Xiwen’s major assistants.
Through the discussions of these people, only did Ye Xiwen know that his senior brother was going to inherit the position of the Supreme School Master. If it wasn’t for him coming out of close cultivation in time, he might have missed the ceremony. He had never received any news about it. It was apparent that everyone in the Tibetan Star Summit was afraid of interrupting him, which stopped them from delivering the news to him.
Hearing this news, he felt both happy and worried. Naturally, he was happy because his senior brother was about to inherit the Supreme School Master position. It meant that he had entered the Transcendent Realm. His talents were extremely high to begin with, and he even possessed extremely sturdy foundations for his cultivation after cultivating for thousands of years. In fact, it was much sturdier than Ye Xiwen’s.
In the past thirty years, it was unknown how many resources the school had invested into him. They did whatever they could to increase his cultivation.
At the same time, the more they acted like this, the more it proves that the School Master was having difficulties in surviving. If it wasn’t because of this, they wouldn’t need to pass the School Master position away so hurriedly to Huang Wuji.
He had been in close cultivation the entire time. He could only guess what condition the School Master was in. Not only does the School Master’s condition relate to him, it was even related to the thoughts of the entire True Martial School. Unless he could enter the Transcendent Realm and become one of the powerhouse in the school, it would be hard for him to gain any support.
In fact, if it wasn’t for him entering the Half-step Transcendent Realm, and was someone treated with utmost-importance in nurturing, he might not even know the matters about the Supreme School Master’s body condition. Of course, this matter would have to be kept as a secret. Absolutely no one should get wind of it, no matter if they were the disciples of the school or an external enemy. If the news was spread around, it would definitely cause a huge uproar.
As such, they had to ensure Huang Wuji’s growth as fast as possible. If Huang Wuji managed to enter the Transcendent Realm, nothing would happen even if the news was released.
“Finally, you came out of close cultivation, Ye Xiwen!” The voice of a Wolf Cub that appeared out of nowhere resounded. It pulled Ye Xiwen away from his thoughts. As he looked at the Wolf Cub, the Wolf Cub transformed into a ray of black light, and rushed in front of him. Beside the Wolf Cub was a beautiful woman. Naturally, it was Xiao Ya.
Compared to thirty years ago, the Wolf Cub’s appearance didn’t change much. It still had the appearance of a dog, and on his face was still a despicable smile. The only thing that changed was his strength. It had ascended to the Half-step Transcendent Realm. Its progression speed was much faster than Ye Xiwen’s original body. With its bloodline and innate talent, it would be able to kill a Half-step Intermediate Transcendent Realm expert. It doesn’t pale in comparison when compared to Ye Xiwen.
A sudden sense of emotion surged within Ye Xiwen. Some creatures’ innate talents were extremely high. For example, the Wolf Club, and his Star Beast Avatar. His original body, the physique of a normal human being wasn’t comparable to it at all.
However, after seeing Xiao Ya, only did he realise that there were heaven-defying humans as well. After thirty years, Xiao Ya had also grown a little. Her appearance wasn’t that of an eight to nine years old little girl anymore. Instead, she now looked like a thirteen to fourteen years old teenage girl. Her sky blue dress was laced with silver threads, and the teenage girl’s face looked extremely delicate and pretty. Her skin was snowy white, her brows were curvy, and her mouth was tiny. As she smiled, flowers seemed to bloom. Her appearance resembled a teenage girl in her fourteens, and her silver long hair was tied into two coiled knots. Two silvery threads were hanging beneath her eyes, and were swaying lightly.
Although she looked a little different than she was thirty years ago, Ye Xiwen immediately recognized her. She had truly reached the Intermediate stage. This speed in advancement made all his pride disappear. Within the past thirty years, Xiao Ya did not let time pass in vain. Her speed had far surpassed Ye Xiwen’s advancement in cultivation, even when he had gone from a great mastery Great Sage to a Great Sage Great Perfection Realm.
“See, little girl. I told you that Big Brother Ye would definitely come out of close cultivation today. With a mere calculation through my fingers, I can know everything that happened for the past five hundred years, and everything that will happen during the next five hundred years!” said the Wolf Club with a prideful tone to Xiao Ya. It raised its head and puffed its chest out, as if he was a fake fortune teller. Then, it looked at Xiao Ya with an expression that said – How’s that? Aren’t you in awe of my greatness? Quickly praise me!
Although it didn’t say that , Ye Xiwen was already extremely familiar with it. Just by looking at its expression, he could tell what it wanted to say. He immediately became speechless, and slapped it with his palm.
However, the Wolf Club seemed to have expected it. It immediately jumped away, and shouted in a weird tone, “Gosh, why do you want to hit someone the moment you come out of close cultivation? This is truly unscientific! Luckily, my strength is peerless. Otherwise, I would have been ambushed by you!”
Ever since Ye Xiwen had mentioned the sentence “This is truly unscientific,” it had become the Wold Club’s catchphrase. It almost had to bring it up every single time.
Although it was just a gag, Ye Xiwen felt as if he had gone back to the Earth. He was already very speechless to this despicable wolf, especially after seeing its despicable smile.
Xiao Ya was at the side, quietly staring at the two of them arguing. A smile appeared on her face, and flowers seemed to have bloomed on her face as well. However, she quickly reverted back to her calm appearance. She possessed a natural aura that pushed everyone far away from her.
Ye Xiwen sighed in his heart. As expected, after handing Xiao Ya over to the Fair Maiden Peak’s Chief, she is influenced by that ice cold woman. Last time, Xiao Ya wasn’t like this.
Although she didn’t seem any different, it actually possessed a huge difference. Although Xiao Ya was also quiet last time, it merely felt like she was a quiet girl and an introvert. However, right now, she seemed like she didn’t care for mundane matters anymore, and her expression was extremely cold.
It gave Ye Xiwen a mild headache. If Xiao Ya really became an ice cold woman, Ye Xiwen might go crazy. Luckily, she was just mildly influenced by the Fair Maiden Peak’s Chief.
Ye Xiwen walked to the side of Xiao Ya, and pressed his hand on her small head. He rubbed her head forcefully, and made a mess out of her hair.
“What are you doing…?” said Xiao Ya angrily. Her big pair of beautiful eyes glared at Ye Xiwen. She was angry at Ye Xiwen for messing with her hair.
“Haha, you should be like this. You’re just a little girl. How old are you? And yet, your expression is so stiff. That ain’t good. You should act like this!” Ye Xiwen didn’t care about her anger, and laughed loudly. Although Xiao Ya had grown a little, she was still the little girl that would never grow up in Ye Xiwen’s eyes.
