"Fervent pursuer…" Zhang Xuan was stumped into silence.
He had thought that it was just a simple rivalry, but to think that there would be so much drama behind it!
Then again, he should have thought of it.
Only such an emotion could possibly lead to so many years of persistence from Jian Qinsheng. For example, if he were to steal Luo Ruoxin away, the young prodigy of the Zhang Clan would surely challenge him frenziedly for decades or even centuries to come!
In the first place, those who practiced swordsmanship tended to be extremely obstinate and unyielding individuals, so how could they possibly be able to keep an open mind to other things?
"Indeed. I really have to say kudos to Jian Qinsheng's obstinacy. Even now, he's still unwilling to find another mate. Forget it, let's not talk about them anymore. Well, I do understand that it's important for you to head over to the Zhang Clan." Luo Xuanqing was deeply conflicted.
Killing the man whom his younger sister had fallen in love with was important, but he was not willing to let such a good opportunity to humiliate the Zhang Clan go either.
Due to his younger sister, he had been tirelessly finding ways to put them down, and this was clearly a darn good occasion to do so!
"Indeed. Pardon me for not being of any help to you in this matter." Zhang Xuan shook his head. A moment later, he raised his gaze once more and asked deeply, "Is it the Luo Clan's or Zhang Clan's intention to kill that man?"
"Is there a difference between the two? Even if we don't make a move, the Zhang Clan will very soon make a move too. By then, things would only get far more troublesome." Luo Xuanqing shook his head.
Ever since his younger sister had admitted her love for that man, that man's fate had already been sealed.
There was no way that the Zhang Clan and Luo Clan could allow this ticking time bomb to continue existing.
"Zhang Clan…" On the other hand, hearing that the Zhang Clan had intentions to kill him too, Zhang Xuan clenched his teeth in fury.
How can they have the cheek to call themselves the number one Sage Clan of the Master Teacher Continent when all they do is commit such despicable acts… Wait a moment, they are shameless, that's why!
It was one thing to force Luo Ruoxin to marry the young prodigy of the Zhang Clan, but now, they were even intending to kill him as well. Just how lawless could they get!
"It's fine." Luo Xuanqing sighed deeply. "It goes without saying, but you must keep all of this a secret. No matter the circumstances, it mustn't reach the ears of another soul!"
"Don't worry, my lips are tightly sealed!" Zhang Xuan nodded. "Actually, I think that it would be good for you to discuss this matter with the little princess before making a decision. Otherwise, this incident could drive a wedge in the relationship between you and your younger sister."
"Un." Luo Xuanqing was silent for a moment before nodding slowly. "I'll think about that."
The main issue was that his younger sister was still grounded, and he had no way to contact her, or else he definitely would have found a way to do so.
"I'll be taking my leave first then!" Zhang Xuan clasped his fist before heading for Jian Qinsheng's residence.
Luo Xuanqing watched as Zhang Xuan vanished in the night sky before he shook himself out of his daze. He left the residence, too, but instead of returning back to his own accommodations, he headed to the Hall of Integrity.
Walking up to the counter, he instructed, "I want detailed intelligence about the Hongyuan Master Teacher Academy. It's an organization located in the Qingyuan Conferred Empire."
Since he was unable to engage Zhang Xuan's help for that matter, he had no choice but to do it himself.
"Hongyuan Master Teacher Academy? Noted! Young Master Luo, please give me a moment. I'll look it up right now!"
The attendant was a young lady in her early twenties, and recognizing Luo Xuanqing, she did not dare show the slightest bit of disrespect toward him. She quickly rushed into a room, and not too long later, she returned with a book in hand.
Any information concerning master teachers would have to be submitted to the headquarters, and considering that the Sanctum of Sages was a subsidiary organization of the Master Teacher Pavilion headquarters, there were various channels that they could use to procure the information.
"The Hongyuan Master Teacher Academy is located in Hongyuan Tier-1 Empire, and the strongest expert there is only at Saint 1-dan pinnacle." The attendant began to recite the information in the book.
"Only Saint 1-dan pinnacle?" Luo Xuanqing's cheeks twitched.
Were his younger sister's eyes not a little too poor?
Even the strongest expert in the Hongyuan Master Teacher Academy was only at that level! Just what charm did that man possess to be able to win her fancy, such that she would even go against the Luo Clan and Zhang Clan for him?
"It's a low-ranked Master Teacher Academy capable only of grooming 6-star master teachers, so it's inevitable that the cultivators there would be slightly lacking," the attendant hurriedly replied.
"Where is it located?" Luo Xuanqing asked.
"It's located more than a million li away from here. Saint 8-dan beasts require roughly half a month of flight in order to reach there. Here is a map for your reference," the attendant said as she took out a map and showed it to Luo Xuanqing.
"Half a month? That's still fine." Luo Xuanqing heaved a sigh of relief.
If he could get to the Hongyuan Master Teacher Academy within half a month, he should be able to eliminate that man ahead of the Zhang Clan.
With a quick scan, Luo Xuanqing swiftly memorized all of the details on the map before turning around to leave. However, before he could walk out of the doorstep, he suddenly recalled a matter and turned around to ask, "Do you happen to have any information on some of the more outstanding master teacher from the Hongyuan Master Teacher Academy in recent years?"
Considering how his younger sister liked that man and was even full of praise for him, even if that man's cultivation and master teacher rank were only so-so, he should still at least possess some exceptional talent in some fields!
In a small place like the Hongyuan Master Teacher Academy, he should be able to shine like a pearl amid pebbles, catching the eyes of everyone.
The attendant pondered for a moment before replying, "I'm afraid that I'm unable to access that information with my level of clearance. If Young Master Luo isn't in a rush, I can invite an elder over to help you check on the matter!"
She was only an attendant of the Hall of Integrity, so she could only look into more general information. In order to obtain more detailed information such as the names of the master teachers residing in a location, they would require the clearance of an elder.
After thinking about it for a brief moment, Luo Xuanqing nodded.
If he could find out the identity of the man whom his younger sister liked, he could assign others to do the job in his stead, thus avoiding the long journey down to the Hongyuan Master Teacher Academy.
He waited for roughly an hour on the spot before an elder hurriedly walked out from one of the inner rooms of the Hall of Integrity.
Whether it was Luo Xuanqing's standing as a core member of the Luo Clan or his notorious title as the King of Destruction in the Sanctum of Sages, he was not someone whom ordinary managerial elders could afford to offend.
The elder hurriedly walked up to Luo Xuanqing and retrieved a book from his storage ring. He took a moment to swiftly flip through the entire book before he closed it and said, "Young Master Luo, I have browsed through the records of all notable master teachers in the Hongyuan Master Teacher Academy over the past five years, and there is indeed one who enjoys great fame and prestige there."
"Enjoys great fame and prestige? Tell me more!" Luo Xuanqing's eyes immediately lit up.
"This master teacher came to fame roughly half a year ago. He originates from a humble Unranked Kingdom, and with his own strength, he slowly paved his way up through the ranks. He has successfully crashed two Master Teacher Pavilions, and he has foiled a major ploy from the Otherworldly Demonic Tribe and slain ten Otherworldly Demon Kings and one Otherworldly Demon Emperor, thus contributing immensely to mankind!
"Furthermore, he has successfully built a kingdom into an empire and groomed many talented students. Eventually, he even became the principal of the Hongyuan Master Teacher Academy!" the elder said.
"No doubt about it, he must be the person I am looking for!"
Only their ancestor had ever successfully crashed a Master Teacher Pavilion before. The fact that the other party was able to do it too showed that he was a man of great talent. That aligned with his younger sister's description.
Most likely, that fellow was the person whom his younger sister liked!
"What's that person's name? Is he still in the Hongyuan Master Teacher Academy?" Luo Xuanqing asked.
"This… Young Master Luo, I'm afraid that I don't have the authority to track down his recent whereabouts. But as for his name, I think I should still be able to find it. His name is…"
As he spoke, the elder flipped open the book once more and took a closer look at the records. A moment later, his eyes narrowed in astonishment.
