1659 Let“s Go to the Master Teacher Pavilion Headquarters!
The Luo Clan had arrived imposingly with the burning resolve to humiliate Zhang Xuan and the Zhang Clan, but before anything could happen, they had already acknowledged him as the clan head… Was there a pit in the heads of those from the Luo Clan?
Otherwise, why would they do something as foolish as this?
"I don't know the details either, but I heard that…" The elder suddenly halted at this point. He was not sure if the rumors were true, so he was not certain whether he should report the matter or not.
"Speak. What is it?" Sword Saint Xing asked authoritatively.
"There are rumors that our clan head went to the Jiang Clan yesterday… and shortly afterward, the Jiang Clan conducted an inauguration ceremony and established him as their clan head!"
"…" Sword Saint Xing.
"…" Sword Saint Meng.
Can anyone tell me what in the world is going on here?
The Jiang Clan and the Luo Clan has actually acknowledged someone from the Zhang Clan as their clan head…
Is there a pit in heads of those from the Jiang Clan too?
Could this be some kind of infectious disease among the upper echelons of the Master Teacher Continent? Maybe we should keep a lookout for it.
The Xingmeng Sword Saints fell into a state of confusion. They could understand the words individually, but when those words were put together, it formed sentences that they simply could not comprehend.
And the fact was that the Xingmeng Sword Saints were not the only ones in state of confusion. Everyone in the Zhang Clan was flabbergasted upon hearing the news.
Startled expressions could be seen on the faces of the members of the Zhang Clan as the news swiftly made its way around.
Our clan head… sure is awesome!
To actually become the head of the Three Premier Clans… This was something completely unprecedented in history!
It also did not take long for the news to make its way to the Luo Clan, and everyone was dumbstruck to hear of the matter.
Luo Xuanqing was in the midst of cultivating the Spatial Quintessence of Sealing when he heard the news.
He collapsed to the ground, and his eyes rolled up as he blacked out.
Can anyone tell me what in the freaking world just happened?
Didn't the clan head and the elders head over there to exact vengeance?
Is this what they meant by exacting vengeance?
"It's finally resolved!"
Oblivious to the uproar that he had just caused, Zhang Xuan heaved a sigh of relief and returned back to his room.
As long as the matter concerning the Luo Clan was not resolved, it would have remained a thorn by his side. Left with no choice, he could only summon his clone and put on an entire skit for the Luo Clan. This gave rise to the show that Luo Ganzhen and the others saw.
His actions could not be said to be honorable, but given the current circumstances of the world, he did not have the luxury to be picky with his means. As long as he could resolve the conflict with the Luo Clan and have them willingly collaborate with the Zhang Clan and the Jiang Clan for the crisis ahead, everything would be worth it.
He had only gone out for an entire day, but he had managed to make massive gains.
He cultivated the Soul Quintessence, advanced his soul cultivation to the Aureate Body realm, forged the Ancient Sage corpse into a Soulless Metal Humanoid, collected another golden page, and most importantly of all, become the head of the other two Premier Clans…
It had truly been a fruitful day!
"Since I'm free at the moment, I should advance my Primordial Spirit to Aureate Body realm consummation!"
Taking a deep breath, he activated the formation around the room to keep away any prying eyes before releasing his Primordial Spirit once more.
After being tempered by the heavenly flame tribulation, his soul cultivation had successfully advanced to the Aureate Body realm. However, it was still some distance away from reaching consummation.
Since he had some time, it would be good for him to quickly do so. Otherwise, the massive gap between him and his clone would only slowly drown him in depression.
After all, how could the main body be weaker than the clone?
How undignified was it for the master to be outdone by the clone?
After taking out a couple of cultivation resources, Zhang Xuan's Primordial Spirit began devouring spiritual energy furiously.
Four hours later…
His entire Primordial Spirit was gleaming with a golden sheen, as if it was made out of pure gold.
"I have finally reached consummation stage…" Zhang Xuan's eyes lit up in excitement.
It was a little exhausting, but he had finally done it after four hours of hard work.
"With my soul cultivation and my zhenqi cultivation, even if I encounter an Intuitive Impulse realm cultivator, I will be able to triumph over him with ease. With the Dragonbone Divine Spear in hand, I would stand a chance even against a Sempiternal realm primary stage cultivator!"
Feeling the great power coursing through his body, Zhang Xuan smiled in delight.
Even though his Primordial Spirit was only at Aureate Body realm consummation, it had been tempered by the Saint Ascension Ordeal, lightning tribulations, and the Empyrean Heavenly Flame. In terms of fighting prowess, it was already on par with Intuitive Impulse realm cultivators!
With the Dragonbone Divine Spear in hand, he would be able to subdue even Sword Saint Xing in a direct confrontation!
"I'll be able to protect myself with such strength!"
As powerful as the golden page was, it was ultimately a consumable tool. It would disappear after it was used. The Soulless Metal Humanoid that he had forged from the Otherworldly Demon Ancient Sage was formidable as well, but it was highly demanding on his soul energy, and his control over it was not as sharp as compared to moving his own body.
In the end, there was nothing more reliable than his own strength.
Just as Zhang Xuan returned his Primordial Spirit to his body, he suddenly heard a voice outside.
He quickly tore down the barrier and walked out of his room.
Luo Ruoxin was seated on one of the benches by the courtyard. Upon seeing him, her eyebrows shot up in astonishment.
"You have made a breakthrough in your cultivation?"
It was just a day of absence, but there was a visible difference in Zhang Xuan's aura. It felt much deeper than before, making it difficult for one to gauge the depth of his strength in a single glance.
"I guess so!" Zhang Xuan replied with a nod.
"It's good that you have made a breakthrough. I have to make a trip to the Master Teacher Pavilion headquarters to settle some matters, and I can bring you to the area where Kong shi left behind his superior breakthrough method," Luo Ruoxin said.
"You are going to the Master Teacher Pavilion headquarters?" Zhang Xuan asked in surprise.
"Un. I can see great energy coursing from your body, and it's on the verge of running amok. Without a doubt, it's about time for you to raise your cultivation. This way, even if something happens, you will have the strength to cope, and I'll…" Luo Ruoxin paused for a brief moment before saying, "… also be able to rest assured…"
"Un. It's indeed about time for me to push for a breakthrough!" Zhang Xuan nodded.
The Innate Fetal Poison was simply too smug. He had to achieve a breakthrough as soon as possible and burn that fellow completely with the heavenly flame.
Otherwise, if that fellow suddenly lost its rationality and attempted something, he would really be a goner.
On top of that, if he achieved a breakthrough in his zhenqi cultivation to Great Sage, there would surely be a surge in his fighting prowess once more. Paired together with his Aureate Body realm Primordial Spirit, even without Kong shi's blood droplet, he would be able to defeat any cultivator beneath Ancient Sage!
In other words, even if he encountered the scholarly young man once more, he would be able to apprehend him and force him to spit out the whereabouts of Zhao Ya and the others.
The only consolation for him right now was that Zhao Ya and the others were not in any major danger. As the heads of major powers, they were bound to have soul lanterns. If something had truly happened to them, the Glacier Plain Court, the Poison Hall, and the Yuan Clan surely would have sent word over.
Nevertheless, the close ties between the Hundred Schools of Philosophers and the Otherworldly Demonic Tribe left him feeling rather unnerved. He had to find out the reason behind this uncanny partnership as soon as possible so as to determine whether the Hundred Schools of Philosophers was an ally or an enemy.
"Let's head off then!" Luo Ruoxin said with a chuckle.
"Alright!" Zhang Xuan nodded.
He quickly called Sun Qiang over and delegated some matters to him before the both of them departed from the Zhang Clan.
Shortly after leaving the perimeter of the Zhang Clan, he suddenly recalled that adolescent boy and asked, "Oh right, will Wu Chen be coming along?"
Wu Chen had followed them to the Zhang Clan, but it did not seem like he had seen him around over the past day. Of course, he had also been busy during this period of time, so he was not one to speak.
"He had some matters to attend to, so he left earlier. We are heading to the Master Teacher Pavilion headquarters to find Kong shi's superior breakthrough method, not to pick a fight with anyone. There won't be any danger, so it won't matter whether he's around or not," Luo Ruoxin replied.
"You're right." Zhang Xuan nodded before falling silent.
He quickly went through a map that he had collected into the Library of Heaven's Path and located the whereabouts of the Master Teacher Pavilion headquarters. Following which, he flicked his wrist, and the Dragonbone Divine Spear flew into his hand.
With a thrust of his spear, a dimension rift was torn open, and a passageway appeared before them.
Zhang Xuan took the lead, and Luo Ruoxin followed closely behind him.
The next moment, the duo found themselves standing before a cluster of towering buildings that was reminiscent of the scale of a royal palace.
The Master Teacher Pavilion headquarters!
