As he looked at Tun Tun laugh, Lin Feng, who was sitting in the Grand Heavens Pavilion, did not know what to say.
“You…” Lin Feng shook his head as he did not know whether he should laugh or cry. Then, he began to think seriously if he should confiscate the medicine bottle from Tun Tun for fears that she may ruin the Dark Aqua Xuanming’s life
Jieyu’s advancement into the Advanced Demonic Lord stage and Tun Tun’s return to Mount Yujing were both small matters for the Celestial Sect of Wonders and Mount Yujing
On Lin Feng’s side, there were many things that he needed to do.
While Xiao Yan and the rest went to refine their mantras and instruct their own disciples, they also needed to look after the new Foundational disciples.
As the Celestial Sect of Wonders continued its upward trend and the successive disciples started to enter the Foundation Establishment stage one-by-one, the Foundational disciples were mainly taught by Liu Xiafeng, Zhuge Wanqiu and the other successive disciples.
Xiao Yan, Zhu Yi and the other immediate disciples would occasionally pop down and give lectures, which were targeted at both Foundational disciples and successive disciples.
However, after the Spiritual Conference of the Kunlun Mountains had ended, as they had recently concluded their sect-opening ceremony, many new disciples with no foundation joined the sect. Hence, Xiao Yan, Zhu Yi and the rest were personally involved in the training of these Foundational disciples.
In this process, they too sought to understand the calibre of these disciples.
“In the third sect-opening ceremony, there were many more talented disciples than the previous two sect-opening ceremonies,” said Xiao Yan sincerely. “The top two may be even better than Yuncong in the future.”
In comparison to the previous two sect-opening ceremonies, the Celestial Sect of Wonders was much more famous and prestigious right now. Coupled with a bit of luck, the third sect-opening ceremony could be seen as the best in the sect’s history.
Yue Hongyan smiled and said, “You are referring to Tang Jun and Han Yang, right?”
Shi Tianhao said cheekily, “Big Senior wants Tang Jun, right? Hehe, a Natural Fire-Type Entity and a Fire Lord Body, I recall that such an individual had only appeared once in the history of the entire Grand Celestial World, and that was in the Antiquity Age.”
Tang Jun and Han Yang both went through the trial of the Heart-Revealing Steps. Their performances were the best and Tang Jun himself already possessed the mastery of a Foundation Establishment stage cultivator, which was the highest amongst all Foundational disciples who joined the sect then.
While he was only 15, his potential was exceptional.
Xiao Yan said honestly, “The kid’s innate ability is special, and he has a good mindset too, which I respect.”
He paused for a while and then said, “However, he seems to carry some sort of secret with him. Master mentioned that he may be working for either the Great Zhou Empire of the Lei Family.”
The few disciples nodded their heads. They were all on Mount Yujing but in unison, they cast their gaze onto the Yun Peak.
A light image was projected from there. At the moment, it showed a young boy who was no older than ten. He appeared elegant and his gaze was bright. While he was still a child, one knew that he would become handsome when he grew up.
The young boy was called Han Yang. His performance on the Heart-Revealing Step was as exceptional as Tang Jun’s and way superior to everyone else’s. Initially, when Zhu Yi brought him back to Mount Yujing, it was a rather interesting affair as he had previously been a beggar.
He was intelligent and observant. While he was young, he was full of ideas.
However, he had some personality flaws too. If he wished, he could get along well with many people. However, Han Yang’s personality was rather proud and it appeared that he would only befriend those who took the initiative to befriend him first.
Shi Tianhao smiled and said, “I wonder who will he join, I kind of like him.”
The others all ribbed him, “You really are not bad, eh? Not only did you scam Huang Zhenting, you want to scam another one now? Or did Huang Zhenting disappoint you? Do you want to produce a troublemaker like yourself.”
Shi Tianhao laughed and said nothing. He looked at Zhu Yi and said, “You brought him back Second Senior, don’t you like him?”
Zhu Yi said with a smile, “He is innately good and like a piece of rough jade. He is still young and with the right guidance and cultivation, he will surely become someone respectable.”
With that, Zhu Yi noticed suddenly noticed that Luo Qingwu was staring straight at Han Yang.
“What’s the matter, Junior Luo?” Everyone else noticed what she was doing.
Luo Qingwu regained her senses and said slightly hesitantly, “Earlier on, when I instructed the Foundational disciples, Han Yang feels special to me. How can I describe it? I feel a sense of familiarity with him.”
The few of them looked at each other. Zhu Yi fell silent and said after a while, “Do you mean that you believe that he has potential to become a sword cultivator?”
Luo Qingwu nodded her head and said, “Senior Zhu is right, I feel that he will do well as a sword cultivator.”
“Junior Luo is too cunning,” said Shi Tianhao with a smile. “You are hinting that you want him as your disciple.”
Luo Qingwu smiled and said, “There’s no need for hints, I genuinely believe that I am fated to be his master. Furthermore, now that I have no disciple, my first disciple should someone special, right? Hence, thank you seniors for letting me have my way here!”
Xiao Yan smiled and said, “It’s up to the disciples to choose us first, and only then can we assess them. If he doesn’t choose you, then there’s nothing you can do too.”
Luo Qingwu stuck out her tongue and made a face at Xiao Yan. “Senior Xiao Yan, please don’t bully me. I know that when you guys give lectures, you are subtly trying to get the disciples you want to feel a sense of closeness to you so that they may eventually ask you to be their master.”
The few of them began to laugh.
Yang Qing looked at the light projection, which showed the group of disciples on Yun Peak. “This batch of disciples are all not bad, other than Tang Jun and Han Yang who are the best, the rest are of decent calibre too.”
Wang Lin, who was by his side, nodded his head and pointed to a few of them “That girl, that brother and sister pair and the youth are all good too.”
Li Yuanfang said, “Meng Honglou, Ye Xinhui, Ye Xinxuan, Tan Yunqing.”
Luo Qingwu smiled and said, “Zhou Yuncong, Xu Yunsheng, now there’s a Tan Yunqing. Haha, I wonder why do so many disciples have the name ‘Yun’ in their name.”
Yue Hongyan smiled slightly and said, “Yunsheng learns from his mistake, Yuncong is exceptional, if Tan Yunqing proves to be exceptional in the future, then our Celestial Sect of Wonders would have ‘Three Yuns’. That’ll be interesting.”
Xiao Yan said, “After this spiritual conference, disciples who performed well can take in their own disciples too. At that time, there can be two benchmarks when we assess the successive disciples in the future. Those who pass the higher benchmark can become second-generation disciples while those who pass the lower benchmark can become third-generation disciples.”
Zhu Yi said too, “Other than Sixth Junior and Junior Luo, everyone can name the disciples who they think is capable of taking in disciples of their own. For my Heavenly Temple, I name Ying Luozha.”
Xiao Yan said, “I name Liu Xiafeng.”
There was only Yang Qing left. He shook his head and said, “If Yuncong wants to take in disciples, he must at least form his aurous core and pass the Tribulation of the Yin Fire.”
Xiao Yan and the rest nodded their heads in agreement.
In the Grand Heavens Pavilion, Lin Feng smiled as he listened to their discussions. “They are getting a good eye for talent.”
Unlike Xiao Yan and the rest, Lin Feng could see the values of their four traits.
The main harvest of this sect-opening ceremony was Tang Jun and Han Yang, whose total values were 30 and higher, reaching prodigious levels!
The others, such as Tan Yunqing, Meng Honglou and the Ye siblings were exceptional talents too. The harvest of third sect-opening ceremony was superior to the ones before them.
“Zhou Yuncong, Tang Jun, Han Yang, Huang Zhenting and Yang Tie,” thought Lin Feng, “The second generation of disciples had enough talents. The next group of talents should be reserved for the third generation.”
As he thought about that, he summoned Xiao Yan and the rest to see him in the Grand Heavens Pavilion.
“So, what plans do you have” Lin Feng asked upon seeing them. Xiao Yan and the rest looked at each other. Xiao Yan replied first, “Other than instructing them, nothing much.”
“I plan to bring Yunsheng to the Great Zhou Empire to retrieve his sister,” answered Zhu Yi.
Wang Lin fell silent for a while and said, “I want to go into the Void Battleground and find out more about the Hall of the Dead.” The Advanced Nascent Soul stage cultivator who butchered his family members remained at large.
Yue Hongyan answered, “I am going to do closed-door training and further study the mantra and cultivate my mana in preparation for soul formation.”
Yang Qing thought for a while and said, “Other than continuing to instruct Yuncong, there’s nothing much I have in mind.”
Li Yuanfang replied, “I have nothing in mind too, I plan to either instruct the Foundational disciples or do my own training.”
There was no trace of a smile on Shi Tianhao’s face as he said, “I plan to enter the Void Battleground with Third Senior. There has been no news of my parents and my grandfather hasn’t returned from the Void Battleground for three years already.”
Luo Qingwu replied, “Nothing much for me too. Through this spiritual conference, I was able to use the Ten Terrestial Yin-Terminating Sword in person. From that, I have some new revelations that I need to consolidate.”
Lin Feng nodded his head and said, “I’ve mentioned to you earlier that the Three Mountains of the Ying Sea are about to appear. While we have the rough timing, we aren’t sure exactly when would they appear. Hence, to prevent ourselves from missing out on this occasion, those with nothing to do can follow me to the Ying Sea and familiarize yourselves with the environment there.”
“Wang Lin and Tianhao, go to the Void Battleground and do what you must. It’s alright if you miss out on the voyage to the Ying Sea. In any case, you won’t be short-changed,” said Lin Feng. Wang Lin and Shi Tianhao smiled.
“Hongyan, focus on your closed-door training and Qingwu, while you consolidate your knowledge about your new move, the teaching of the Foundational disciples will be temporarily placed under your charge for now. It is a form of training for you too.”
Hearing that, Luo Qingwu said, “Yes, master.”
Lin Feng nodded his head and pointed at Xiao Yan, Yang Qing and Li Yuanfang. “The three of you, get your stuff and prepare to go to the Ying Sea.”
Then he looked at Zhu Yi and said, “We’ll go with you as we will pass by the Great Zhou. First, we will resolve Yunsheng’s problem, then we’ll head out to the sea.”
Xiao Yan, Zhu Yi, Yang Qing and Li Yuanfang nodded their heads and said, “Yes, master.”
