1723 The Encounters of the Xingmeng Sword Saints
"Alright, let's hurry up and head over!"
Hu Yaoyao's breakthrough was completely within Zhang Xuan's expectations. As long as the other party was able to receive his guidance humbly, he would be able to make the other party achieve a breakthrough so easily that the other party would begin doubting themself!
This was the ability that he wielded, humble and low profile, just like him.
Knowing that Zhang Xuan had urgent matters to attend to, Hu Yaoyao did not dare to delay him any longer. She followed quietly behind him while reinforcing her cultivation.
They began making their way toward the Temple of Confucius that they saw in the distance.
The magnificent structure floated in the distant sky, appearing vaguely in sight. With incredible speed, the duo flitted over.
Zhang Xuan had expected the journey to be fraught with dangers, but it turned to be so peaceful that it scared him!
Putting aside Otherworldly Demons, he did not even see a single beast along the way.
Ten minutes later, they were finally standing before the magnificent structure. There was a plaque hanging at the entrance with four majestic words calligraphed on them—Hall of Great Accomplishment!
This must be one of the six Subordinate Halls of the Temple of Confucius!
He had learned from Luo Ruoxin that there were six Subordinate Halls to the Temple of Confucius, and each of them corresponded to a Celestial Amulet of Legacy. Without a doubt, the Hall of Great Accomplishment should be one of the six Subordinate Halls.
Mist drifted across the entrance of the Hall of Great Accomplishment, obscuring it from view. Nevertheless, from the tightly shut gates, it seemed like no one had entered yet.
Looking around, Zhang Xuan found four mini pavilions in the area, named 'Warm Spring', 'Irate Summer', 'Cooling Autumn', and 'Frozen Winter'.
Is that the Pavilion of Warm Spring? Zhang Xuan thought as he made his way over to the pavilion marked with the words 'Warm Spring' together with Hu Yaoyao.
This pavilion was not too big. As soon as he entered the area, he saw a huge number of people standing in the vicinity. Some of them were dressed in master teacher robes whereas others wore the robes of their clan or casual wear.
All in all, there were roughly thirty people. Even the weakest of them was at Saint 9-dan.
Upon seeing Zhang Xuan, a couple of figures walked forward to greet him.
Zhang Xuan also recognized them. They were the grand elders of the Zhang Clan.
They had been in seclusion all this while, and they had only arrived in Qufu two days prior.
The current Zhang Xuan had already stripped off his disguise and reverted to his original appearance.
"Xuan-er, you are here!"
Zhang Xuan was just about to ask where his parents were when he heard a voice coming from the distance. Following which, the Xingmeng Sword Saints walked over with hastened footsteps.
Upon seeing that they were not injured, Zhang Xuan heaved a sigh of relief. At the same time, he could not help but notice something that stunned them. "How did you… raise your cultivation so quickly?"
Prior to entering the Temple of Confucius, they had only been at Sempiternal realm primary stage. However, in just a few short hours, they had actually managed to advance their cultivation to Sempiternal realm consummation, thus putting them at the very pinnacle of the Master Teacher Continent!
"We stumbled upon a fortuitous encounter…"
Following which, Sword Saint Xing began explaining with a smile.
Upon hearing his explanation, Zhang Xuan was rendered speechless.
His parents were far more fortunate than him. Instead of the six dimensions, they were teleported straight to the exterior of the Temple of Confucius.
The spiritual energy and teacher's milieu in there were much more concentrated than the six dimensions. Furthermore, it was filled with treasures when they had just arrived. With the aid of those treasures and their Soul Depth of 29.9, it was inevitable that their cultivation would surge by leaps and bounds.
Seeing the incredulous look on his son's face, Sword Saint Meng added with a smile, "Furthermore, we haven't been cultivating for just a couple of hours… Rather, we have already been here for three months!"
"Three months?" Zhang Xuan was taken aback.
It had only been twelve hours since the Temple of Confucius opened, so how in the world could they have cultivated there for three months?
"Your father and I happened to stumble upon a blessed land where the flow of time is accelerated. As such, even though a couple of hours have only passed for the rest of you, we have already cultivated for a very long time here!" Sword Saint Meng explained.
"This…" Zhang Xuan widened his eyes in shock.
Their luck was too overpowered!
It was one thing for them to be teleported right to the exterior of the Temple of Confucius, but they had actually stumbled upon a blessed land with accelerated time on top of that. He could not help but think of the suffering that he had gone through moving from one world to another, battling enemies one after another.
"Do you know where the blessed land is? Could you find it again?" Zhang Xuan asked.
If they could find it, he would head in there and cultivate for a while to raise his fighting prowess before moving on to do anything else.
"I don't think we'll be able to find it anymore. The blessed land activated when we came into contact with its mechanism, and when we were finally done cultivating, it vanished on its own. We tried looking for it afterward, but it was nowhere to be seen… Actually, even without relying on the blessed land, your cultivation speed is already fast enough as it is…" Sword Saint Meng consoled.
"Alright then!" Zhang Xuan rubbed his glabella.Find authorized novels in Webnovel，faster updates, better experience，Please click www.webnovel.com for visiting.
Even though he was gladdened by the advancement in his parents' cultivation, he could not help feeling a little frustrated as well. He had always taken pride in the speed of his cultivation, but after such a long period of time, he was still stuck at Aureate Body realm consummation, yet to take a single step forward at all…
Sighing deeply, Zhang Xuan looked at his parents and asked, "How did you all get straight to the exterior of the Temple of Confucius? I was teleported to the dimensions outside instead. Furthermore… how did the two of you remain together?"
He had been teleported to the forest dimension outside, and he had been unable to find any familiar faces at all. On the other hand, not only did his parents teleport straight to the exterior, from what he had heard from them, it seemed like they had never separated from one another at all.
"This probably has something to do with the Celestial Amulet of Legacy!" Sword Saint Xing replied. "When the Temple of Confucius first opened, your mother, I, and a few other grand elders were in the midst of studying the Celestial Amulet of Legacy. Before we knew it, we had already been teleported here… Furthermore, I can vaguely feel an inseverable relationship between the Celestial Amulet of Legacy and the Hall of Great Accomplishment before us."
"The Celestial Amulet of Legacy?" Zhang Xuan lowered his head to look at the glowing amulet that Sword Saint Xing was holding onto.
It was emanating an aura that seemed to meld perfectly with the aura of the Hall of Great Accomplishment. It felt like they were actually a single entity that had been split in two, and there was a unique resonance between the two of them.
If that Celestial Amulet of Legacy teleported my parents to the Hall of Great Accomplishment, why didn't the one in my hand do anything of that sort? Zhang Xuan wondered in bewilderment.
The Celestial Amulet of Legacy in his grasp was the Prime Amulet, so going by normal circumstances, should he not have teleported straight to the Prime Hall?
So far, he had not even seen the shadow of the Prime Hall. Instead, he was forced to travel through the forest dimension, desert dimension, and snow dimension… He knew that he would face many dangers in the Temple of Confucius, but the least Little Amulet could do was point out a direction for him!
Had he known that Little Amulet was actually so useless, he would have thrown it away back then!
"Since your Celestial Amulet of Legacy resonates with the Hall of Great Accomplishment, why didn't you all enter the Subordinate Hall?" Zhang Xuan asked.
Since they had already reached the destination and had the required Celestial Amulet of Legacy as well, why were they still idling outside the premises?
"We tried, but we were unable to open its massive doors. It's likely that the time hasn't come for it to be opened yet…" Sword Saint Xing replied. "However, based on my observation, it will likely open within four hours or so!"
Through the windows, Zhang Xuan gazed at the nearby Hall of Great Accomplishment and noticed that the massive doors at its entrance were firmly shut, emanating a forbidding air.
Despite the resonance between the Celestial Amulet of Legacy with the Hall of Great Accomplishment, it seemed like they had not fully harmonized with one another yet.
"In the Jade Communication Token, you mentioned that you spotted Zhao Ya's trail. Where is she?" Zhang Xuan asked.
He had been worrying about his students ever since they were kidnapped. While he had reassured himself time and time again that they would be fine, he still could not help but worry about their plight.
"She's…" Sword Saint Xing was just about to answer the question when a resounding explosion sounded in the air. Following which, the pavilion that they were in suddenly began quaking nonstop.
"They are here again…" Sword Saint Xing stood up and narrowed his eyes.
"Who's here?" Zhang Xuan asked with a frown.
"Otherworldly Demons. They know that your father has a Celestial Amulet of Legacy, so they come over every now and then to challenge us!" Sword Saint Meng explained.
Lowering his gaze, Zhang Xuan saw an Otherworldly Demon standing right in front of the pavilion. The Otherworldly Demon was gripping onto a sword in his hand, and he emanated an air of concentrated killing intent.
"Sword Saint Xing, I am Bei Yuan. Do you dare face me in a duel?" the Otherworldly Demon bellowed with a voice reminiscent of a deafening bell.
