Chapter 12: Meeting The Disciple Poacher!
Translator: Sparrow_ Editor: Sparrow_, Yuui
Naturally, the red-robed youth would be shocked. This little boy in front of him was actually at the level of Qi Disciple level 4 at such a young age. This kind of talent was also considered one in a million even in his sect.
“If I bring this little guy back, the elders in the Sect will definitely go crazy, even the Head of the Sect will not be able to sit tight. I would have made a great contribution…” As he thought of this, the red-robed youth’s heart instantly heated up and he looked at Xiao Budian with an evil grin.
Xiao Budian glanced at this red-robed youth cautiously but he still maintained an innocent and naive look on the surface.
The red-robed youth said smilingly, “Kid, where is your family?”
Xiao Budian blinked his eyes, “I came out with my master.”
The red-robed youth asked, “Which sect are you from? Who is your master?” Xiao Budian shook his head, “I don’t have a sect, master is master.”
“Chance! Looks like his master isn’t from a big sect but a wandering cultivator.” The red-robed youth completely relaxed and his face unconsciously revealed a hint of arrogance, “Kid, meeting me today is like striking lottery. Come with me to my Sect and you will be taught supreme Tao techniques and how to achieve the way of the universe.”
Xiao Budian blinked his big, black eyes; his face was filled with an expression of blankness.
The red-robed youth woke up in realization as he called himself a fool. This kid in front of him may be extremely talented but he was still just a child.
Thus, he changed his tone, “Big brother is a disciple of the Intense Flaming Sword Sect. Have you heard of the Intense Flaming Sword Sect? In the entire world, the strongest sect is us – the Intense Flaming Sword Sect. If you enter the sect, no one will dare to bully you again. You’ll be able to do whatever you want.”
Xiao Budian opened his mouth and said, “But I already have a master.”
The red-robed youth smiled faintly, “There’s no harm, you can still enter into the Intense Flaming Sword Sect. Bring me to go see your master, I’ll speak with him. He will naturally agree.”
He laughed lightly while shaking his head, “If that master of yours is really thinking about what’s best for you, he will naturally agree for you to join the Intense Flaming Sword Sect. Only then can you obtain the best development and not let your talent go unrecognised. What can a wandering cultivator teach you? That’s completely wasting and burying your talent.”
After the red-robed youth glanced at Xiao Budian, he continued to say slowly, “Of course, if he wants to join our Intense Flaming Sword Sect and be a guest elder, we won’t reject him. You will be able to meet him regularly; that would be the best for everyone.”
In the red-robed youth’s mind, a random wandering cultivator being offered a place as a guest elder at his sect was really good fortune.
At that point, he’ll unhesitatingly give away his disciple. There won’t even be the need to convince him any further as he would be rushing to come over to the sect.
The red-robed youth was in the middle of his happy thoughts when he saw the little kid in front of him turn around, smile and run away, leaving behind an increasingly smaller figure of his back.
“What’s this?” The red-robed youth blanked, “He’s so happy that he had to rush back to tell that master of his?”
That was what the red-robed youth hoped for, but his instincts told him that things would not actually go so well. The red-robed youth didn’t dare to hesitate as he started to rapid chase after Xiao Budian.
Originally, he did not think he would take much effort to catch up to Xiao Budian, but after chasing Xiao Budian for some time, the red-robed youth received a big surprise.
Xiao Budian let out a long, clear cry. Under the surge of his mana, his skeleton and muscles seemed to connect into a line, turning into a giant dragon.
Xiao Budian was effectively using the Cloud Dragon Disappearing Technique. He was truly like a dragon flying in the heavens, floundering and shifting in the clouds. He appeared in one moment but immediately disappeared in the next, just like a dragon hiding its head and disappearing in the clouds.
Soon, Xiao Budian disappeared from the red-robed youth’s sight, causing him to stop his tracks in shock. He said dumbfoundedly, “My level is Qi Disciple level 6, to think that I would actually be ditched by a Qi Disciple level 4 little kid?!”
What he didn’t know was that Xiao Budian was also very unsatisfied in his heart, “I still haven’t exerted this escape technique to the limit. If it were Master he would ditch that big red monkey out of sight in a flash.”
Xiao Budian was careful and purposely went around the forest in a couple of circles. After confirming that he’d already completely ditched the red-robed youth, he ran back and met up with Lin Feng.
Hearing Xiao Budian retell what happened, Lin Feng secretly furrowed his eyebrows.
Intense Flaming Sword Sect.
Even though the Stone Village elder’s level wasn’t high, he travelled extensively when he was young and was quite knowledgeable. Before leaving Lin Feng had talked with him a couple of times and secretly obtained a lot of information from him.
This Intense Flaming Sword Sect was the same as the Sword of Radiance Sect; they were both part of the few top-level sects in the borders of the Great Qin Dynasty. These sect had countless strong people, a Foundation Establishment stage cultivator like Ye Ge was just a minor character.
What made things worse was that these two sword sects are both members of the Nine Heavens Sword Alliance.
The Nine Heavens Sword Alliance was formed by the alliance of the nine great sword sects. They had always been very close. Moreover, the leader of the alliance, the Mt. Shu Sword Sect, was the supreme holy land of the way of the sword. Together with the Buddhist Great Thunder Monastery and the Taoist Void Temple, they were the three great holy lands of the cultivating world of the Heaven Primal world.
The red-robed youth’s claims that his sect was the strongest sect was undoubtedly a big bluff. Not only couldn’t it compare with the three great holy lands, it was also just a mid-tier sect within the Nine Heavens Sword Alliance.
But there was no doubt that the Intense Flaming Sword Sect was indeed a powerful force in the Heaven Primal world.
Lin Feng glanced at Xiao Budian, the little guy’s black hair reached down to his shoulders, his big eyes are black, bright, and very energetic. His appearance was white and clean; pretty and cute.
“My good disciple, you are like a firefly in the dark, so bright and outstanding. That melancholic look in your eyes, the milk stains remaining at the corners of your lips and your godly talent have all deeply betrayed you, attracting all kinds of people to approach you one after another…”
Lin Feng secretly smiled wryly, the matter of the attempt of someone trying to take his disciple from him reminded him of a pertinent issue.
He could actually be considered an innocent man troubled by his wealth.
Xiao Budian, along with all of Lin Feng’s future disciples, was destined to be a prodigy with heaven-defying talents due to the rigid standards of the system.
If Lin Feng were too weak, even if these disciples themselves didn’t betray him, they would still attract the greed of others.
This was different from him leading the Sword of Radiance Sect to fight the Peach Demon Long Ye. The reason that he dared to screw over the Sword of Radiance Sect was because they were the enemies for Xiao Yan. Thus, the Sword of Radiance Sect was destined to become his stepping stone.
But the Intense Flaming Sword Sect was different, this was an opponent that Lin Feng created himself.
But so what?
Lin Feng laughed coldly. Against this kind of big force, it’s best not to offend them. But since the matter was related to Xiao Budian, there’s only two words Lin Feng can say to them: F*ck them!
He spent such a great effort to take Xiao Budian as his disciple, how could he simply hand him over?
Not to mention the system was still waiting for him. If he didn’t gather 4 disciples approved by the system in a year, the system wasn’t going to be polite with him.
