Chapter 565: Goal of the Little Lolita
Translator: Sparrow Translations Editor: Sparrow Translations
Bai Xiqian’s appearance was refined and her aura was feminine and slightly frail. However, as an immediate disciple of the Great Void Sect, no one dared to underestimate her. Her tone was gentle and soft and well-mannered. She appeared extremely cordial.
She smiled slightly, looked at Luo Qingwu and said quietly, “Little Sister, what’s your name? Do you have a master?”
Bao Qianxi’s intentions were clear. The Great Void Sect intended to accept Luo Qingwu as a disciple.
Everyone around them looked at the little lolita and sighed quietly, “What luck! To be borne with such extraordinary capabilities as a pure Yin being and to be looked favorably upon by the Great Void Sect! She will never have to worry after joining them and she is assured a bright future.”
Some of them who gave the matter a bit more thought re-focused their gaze onto the battle between the Samsara Sect’s Nascent Soul stage grandmaster and Ding Runfeng.
“There were records of the Great Void Sect taking in True Yin beings and True Yang beings as disciples at the same time. Soon after, the two of them became a couple and helped each other. Their achievements were much greater than any ordinary solo true Yin or true Yang disciple.”
“Could it be that the Great Void Sect wishes to recreate that situation?”
When Ding Runfeng battled with the Samsara Sect grandmaster, his gaze continued to sweep the crowd. He noticed Luo Qingwu and his expression did not change very noticeably.
Bai Xiqian could not possibly raise such an issue to Luo Qingwu, who was only about ten years old.
She just looked quietly at Luo Qingwu.
The little lolita batted her eyes and said in a clear voice, “I have no master, but I studied the Tao with my mother and father when I was young.”
“That’s not a problem,” said Bai Xiqian in a gentle voice. “I too learned about the Tao with my family members.”
She extended her palm and lightly held Luo Qingwu’s hand. “Little Sister, have you heard of the Great Void Sect?”
Luo Qingwu nodded and Bai Xiqian’s smile became wider. “Do you know what type of being are you?”
“I know,” Luo Qingwu looked at Ding Runfeng. “I complement him.”
“Exactly,” said Bai Xiqian with a smile. “Have you heard of the name ‘Bright Space Pure Yin Treasure Manual’ before?”
Luo Qingwu was surprised as she shook her head.
The cultivator next to her said, “The Bright Space Pure Yin Treasure Manual was a mantra that perfectly complemented the Pure Yang Righteous Heart Mantra of the Great Void Sect. It is the most suitable mantra for pure Yin beings. When the two of them are combined, they have unbridled potential.”
The cultivators around them began to mutter and all felt that Luo Qingwu was immensely lucky that day. Not only did she come as a pure Yin being, she was able to meet the immediate disciples of the Great Void Sect when she came out for her short excursion. Her innate potential and her fortune must be astoundingly high.
Some jealous onlookers thought, “F*ck, it appears that one’s innate potential is the most important.”
As everyone proclaimed their admiration and envy, Bai Xiqian’s face was without any sign of arrogance. Instead, she appeared slightly embarrassed. She looked apologetically at Luo Qingwu and said softly, “I’m sorry, why not we talk about it elsewhere?”
Luo Qingwu’s face was hard to read as Jun Zining, who was next to her, looked at her and shook her head.
Bai Xiqian, who was good at picking up subtle hints, asked, “Are you worried that you will lose touch with your family members? Don’t worry, I can help you find them. Stuff like this should be discussed with them.”
Luo Qingwu shook her head and said, “No need, my family members are not in Xiling City.”
She paused for a while and looked at Bai Xiqian and said with a smile, “Anyway, with respect to joining a sect, I can make my own decision. I don’t need to ask them.”
“That’s… not really appropriate?” Bai Xiqian smiled slightly. Luo Qingwu shook her head and pointed to Jun Zining by her side and said, “If you don’t believe me, you can ask her.”
Jun Zining was slightly shocked. She felt Bai Xiqian’s gaze on her as she nodded and said, “Right, she makes her own decisions for such matters.”
When everyone heard that, many laughed, “Dumb little girls! It’s either she ran away from her family after a disagreement, or she has already decided to join the Great Void Sect and was scared of missing out on this chance.”
“For every single person that wishes to join the Great Void Sect, they will not hesitate to make the decision. Evidently, the young girl has already made up her mind. Bright future, a bright future indeed.”
Bai Xiqian’s gaze returned to Luo Qingwu as she said, “Is that so…”
Luo Qingwu nodded and said, “Of course, so if I want to join a particular sect, I can head straight there straightaway. I don’t need to seek my family’s approval.”
Bai Xiqian gripped Luo Qingwu’s hand softly and said with a smile, “If that’s the case, then will Little Sister come along with us? However, you have to wait till Senior Ding finishes his fight.”
Luo Qingwu tilted her head and said, “But I didn’t say that I want to join the Great Void Sect. Also, I didn’t say that I will return to the mountain with you.”
That statement stunned the entire crowd.
Ding Runfeng was the first to lose his concentration. He miscalculated his spell formation and he almost fell into his opponent’s trap.
However, he did not need to worry as his opponent lost focus too.
The entire crowd stared in shock at Luo Qingwu. Everyone’s brain was filled with a question mark.
What exactly did this little girl want? Wasn’t she wasting such a great chance? As a pure Yin being, her starting point was way higher than anyone else. With enough cultivation, her path in the future will be much smoother than everyone else’s.
However, being talented did not necessarily translate into success. To turn from a genius to a powerful cultivator, she must turn her potential into actual power.
In the entire Grand Celestial World, genii were like goldfish in a lake. There were too many of them to be counted. However, very few were able to successfully come out top.
Many factors influence the growth of a genius-level person. Any deviation could change his entire fortune.
Also, genius could reach heights that ordinary people could not reach. However, they may not be able to reach their own limits, let alone surpass them.
However, these were all immaterial to the Great Void Sect.
The Great Void Sect possessed the mantra that was the most suitable for a pure Yin being, the Bright Space Pure Yin Treasure Manual. In terms of resources, Mount Baiyun was one of the few Holy Grounds of the Divine Land. The land there brimmed with spiritual energy and could be said to be one the best in the entire world. The Great Void Sect possessed many types of rare herbs and medicines too, some of which were only found on Mount Baiyun.
As the Divine Land’s premier cultivation place, the Great Void Sect was in no way lack of famous teachers and masters. Let’s not talk about those who shut themselves away from the door, there were too many active masters to count anyway. Furthermore, the Great Void Sect’s collection of manuals and books were vast too.
Joining the Great Void Sect was the safest option for someone to maximise his potential as a human cultivator. As there were many hiccups on the path of cultivation, one could not be assured of success. However, by cultivating in Mount Baiyun, the chance of a premature end to one’s cultivation career was extremely unlikely.
The Great Void Sect satisfied all possible conditions. No one on-scene understood why was Luo Qingwu not satisfied.
Bai Xiqian’s smile did not change. She looked calmly at the little lolita.
“Whether the Great Void Sect is good or not, it doesn’t matter to me,” said Luo Qingwu as the smile gradually disappeared from her face. She said seriously, “I already have a sect in mind.”
Everyone muttered, “This young girl really has no clue at all. Why doesn’t she choose the Great Void Sect?”
Luo Qingwu smiled slightly, “There has never been a question about choosing. I myself do not need to make a choice too. From start to finish, I only wish to join one sect, and that’s not the Great Void Sect.”
After she said that, the on-lookers began exclaim in earnest. Luo Qingwu’s speech meant that the Great Void Sect was not eliminated from her heart, but rather, it had never been there.
“Doesn’t that mean that she has rebuked all of Bai Xiqian’s good intentions? She is foolishly brave for having dissed the Great Void Sect. Does her ideal sect not care about its relationship with the Great Void Sect too?”
Bai Xiqian’s eyes flashed as she said, “Do you mean to join the Celestial Sect of Wonders?”
Luo Qingwu batted her eyes and said, “You have recognized me from the very start, so why did you ask?”
“I had some hope,” sighed Bai Xiqian.
The Luo Family was the symbol of the Great Zhou Empire’s power in the Ancient Yuantian World. When Luo Qingwu ran away from home, she was taken in by the Great Zhou Empire’s Chen Yu. After obtaining news from the from the Luo Family, Chen Yu and the Crown Prince of the Great Zhou Empire Liang Yuan then knew about the relationship between Luo Qingwu and the Celestial Sect of Wonders.
The Great Void Sect may not surface much, but their intelligence network was powerful.
“The Celestial Sect of Wonders!” Everyone on-scene was shocked. In their minds, they thought, “The Celestial Sect of Wonders is so attractive that even the Great Void Sect is unable to entice disciples away from an up and rising sect?”
“So that’s what’s going on. The Great Void Sect acted in a more high-profile manner now to suppress the Celestial Sect’s air. However, the actions of this young girl caused the Great Void Sect to lose face. No one would have thought that she would have such strong attachments to the Celestial Sect at her age.”
Bai Xiqian looked at Luo Qingwu and asked softly, “The Master of the Celestial Sect will take you in as an immediate disciple?”
Luo Qingwu nodded and said with a smile, “Even if I’m not Master Lin’s direct disciple, I am still happy to join the Celestial Sect.”
“If I want to join a sect, I will only join the Celestial Sect. That is my heart’s desire and my target.”
She did not care if it ended all hope of her joining the Great Void Sect forever.
Listening to what she said, Bai Xiqian sighed again softly.
Ding Runfeng, from afar, said, “After a thousand years and a thousand seasons, time shall be the best basis of measurement.”
“A comet and a star will come close with one another for a moment. One cannot deny that the Master of the Celestial Sect is extremely powerful, but as to how strong the Celestial Sect actually is, one can only tell afterward. Junior Bai, there’s nothing much to say. She has wasted her potential. Perhaps that’s her destiny.”
At this point, a tall young man stepped out from the crowd and looked at Ding Runfeng and said seriously, “I disagree with what you just said.”
He was extremely skinny and dark and tall. His complexion was heroic and his eyes were alight. He did not appear very old but his expression was solid and uncompromising.
Luo Qingwu and Jun Zining looked at him and smiled, “Senior Li.”
The young man was Li Yuanfang. He nodded towards Luo Qingwu and Jun zining and then his gaze returned to Ding Runfeng. He said seriously, “If she joins the Celestial Sect, her talents will not be wasted.”
“Master Lin’s knowledge is vast and even a single tip from him is enough,” Li Yuanfang’s gaze fell upon the Path of Hell cultivator’s formation. Then he said, “I am not a disciple of the Celestial Sect of Wonders, but Master Lin corrected my spells before. I am willing to show you.”
