Chapter 387 – He Will Be Kicked Off The Mountain Tomorrow
Apart from Wu Nian, no one else in the main hall saw Luo Tian in a favorable light.
Everyone wanted Luo Tian to leave.
Starsea Immortal Sect was simply too strong.
In fact, recruiting a person with a crippled dantian into their sect will only result in their immortal sect being laughed at by everyone.
Mount Hua Immortal Sect couldn’t afford to lose any more face.
But… in order for Luo Tian to stay, Wu Nian actually took out the Mount Hua’s Divine Token left to him by his ancestors. One needs to understand that the token’s value exceeded ten thousand top grade xuan stones. It was an item many people in the outside world wished to possess!
With this token, they can be instantly taken in as a disciple of Mount Hua Immortal Sect.
Wu Nian used it to request that Luo Tian, a person with a crippled dantian and unable to cultivate be allowed to stay. This made everyone present dumbstruck.
Mount Hua’s Divine Token invoked the highest authority.
Venerable Yun Ji was stunned upon seeing it. He had a complicated expression on his face as he said: “Wu Nian, you need to reconsider this.”
Venerable Yun Ji then looked at Luo Tian and said: “You are surely an extraordinary person or else you wouldn’t be able to kill the Starsea envoy. But our Mount Hua Immortal Sect is really not suitable for you, and we don’t have a method to allow a person like you with a crippled dantian to cultivate. I hope you can leave on your own volition.”
Luo Tian continued to not say a word.
A belly full of fire was smoldering inside him.
He was really annoyed.
But he promised Wu Nian so he continued enduring. He continued acting like a mute without saying a word.
Wu Nian didn’t hesitate and said: “Sect Leader, there’s no need for me to reconsider. I have already thought things through carefully on the journey back here. I hope Sect Leader will agree to it; Wu Nian will be eternally grateful.”
After saying that…
Wu Nian kneeled on one knee while both his hands held up the Mount Hua’s Divine Token above his head.
The expressions on the Elders present in the main hall drastically changed once again.
“Wu Nian, you… what are you trying to do? He’s a walking disaster! Leaving him around will only cause our Mount Hua Immortal Sect to sink into the pit of despair. We really can’t afford any storms in our current predicament. Let’s say I’m begging you to reconsider for the good of our Mount Hua Immortal Sect!”
“What Third Elder said is correct; you should really reconsider your actions for our immortal Sect.”
“Do you really want to push our Mount Hua Immortal Sect into a bottomless abyss?”
Everyone was trying to persuade him out of it.
Wu Nian was unmoved and continued to request Luo Tian be allowed to stay.
Once the divine token appears, no one can change its course. Unless they were planning to rebel against their ancestors!
Venerable Yun Ji had a painful expression on his face. He walked down the dais and received the divine token from Wu Nian’s hand. “Fine! I will agree to it!”
Wu Nian immediately said: “Thank you!”
“You cannot agree with it! This kid cannot be allowed to stay!”
“He is a scourge; leaving him will be the end of our Mount Hua Immortal Sect!”
“Who can resist the Starsea Immortal Sect? There’s also the Imperial God Immortal Sect who has a marriage relationship with them. Once those two top immortal sects pressure our Mount Hua, who’s going to be responsible for it? We should just send this kid to the Starsea Immortal Sect as a form of account and hope it can resolve our misunderstanding.”
Luo Tian frowned and was about to say something…
When Wu Nian gave him a glance.
Luo Tian held back his words while feeling extremely annoyed. He then said to himself: “They are all immortal sects so why the need to be accountable? If they are so afraid of dying, why continue being an immortal sect? They should just disband the damn place and call it a day.”
One cannot have too much fear and apprehension on the martial path.
When you have too much apprehension, it will only make you fall into a continuous cycle of troubles where it would be difficult to get out of.
This was a big taboo for any martial artist.
If it wasn’t for Wu Nian’s insistence on standing up at Heavenly Sword City and clashing against the Imperial God envoy, Luo Tian would have never followed him to the Mount Hua Immortal Sect.
There was one extremely important reason.
Mount Hua Immortal Sect had a forbidden ground related to an ancient battlefield. Inside were countless ancient demonic beasts, and this was way too attractive to Luo Tian. He currently needed a lot of experience points to level up and normal demonic beasts no longer satisfied his requirements.
It was due to these two reasons that Luo Tian came to Mount Hua Immortal Sect.
He endured it when those Elders in the main hall looked down on him.
The only thing that mattered was him feeling good about himself. As for those hard to hear words, he only needed to endure for a bit and it would be over. There will eventually be a day when these old fogeys will feel ashamed for the words they’ve said today.
Luo Tian had his bottom line so as long as they didn’t touch upon it, everything else can be settled.
At this time, he only needed to endure.
Venerable Yun Ji didn’t say anything further and received the Mount Hua’s Divine Token. “Wu Nian, you need to explain yourself to the Starsea Immortal Sect. The earlier the better; best if you take care of it today.”
Wu Nian stood up and responded: “Wu Nian obeys.”
Right after that, Wu Nian looked at Luo Tian while he awaited Venerable Yun Ji’s decision.
Venerable Yun Ji then said: “I will allow him to stay so you don’t need to worry about it.”
Wu Nian’s mind felt relieved before saying: “Thank you Sect Leader, I’ll be off then.”
Wu Nian walked over to Luo Tian’s side and patted his shoulder. He gave a faint smile that revealed his yellow stained teeth and said: “Kid, don’t disappoint me. I have practically staked everything I have on you.”
After saying that, Wu Nian walked out calmly.
Luo Tian’s mind tightened as he wanted to stop him.
Going to the Starsea Immortal Sect forebode disasters rather than blessings. He was the one that caused this trouble and someone else shouldn’t be the one to settle it. Luo Tian wanted to stop him but Wu Nian sent him a spiritual transmission saying: “There’s no need to say anymore; I firmly believe that I didn’t misread you!”
“Rise up! You definitely must bring Mount Hua Immortal Sect to newer heights!”
Luo Tian clenched his teeth and his fists before sending his thoughts over: “If the Starsea Immortal Sect dares to touch a single hair on you, apart from Li Xue’er, I will send the entire sect to accompany your burial!”
In less than half a second…
Wu Nian had disappeared off into the horizon.
The main hall’s atmosphere turned rather oppressive.
Luo Tian’s expression reverted to his calm look.
Venerable Yun Ji said: “Someone come! Arrange a place for him to stay at Solitary Peak.”
A disciple came into the main hall and made a please gesture to Luo Tian. “Junior brother, please come with me.”
“Sect Leader, you aren’t really letting him stay right?”
“You cannot do that.”
“That kid will bring a disastrous calamity to our Mount Hua Immortal Sect.”
“With a crippled dantian and unable to cultivate – our Mount Hua Immortal Sect has not yet fallen to such a low to recruit a disciple like him. We can’t afford to lose any more face. Sect Leader, please drive him out of our immortal sect.”
Once Luo Tian left, all the Elders asked Venerable Yun Ji to kick Luo Tian out.
Venerable Yun Ji was holding onto the Mount Hua’s Divine Token. He couldn’t change anything for now so his brows were locked and his expression ugly to behold.
The Grand Elder Venerable Hun Yuan walked forward and said: “Sect Leader, Wu Nian made you keep the kid here but we can make him personally withdraw. Let’s have him participate in the assessment. If he fails it, then we have ten thousand reasons to kick him off our mountain.”
“That idea is pretty good!”
“Grand Elder suggested a good move!”
“Upon failing the assessment, he wouldn’t be qualified to stay even if he tries to argue his way out of it. This was a rule set by our ancestors and wouldn’t come into conflict with the Mount Hua’s Divine Token.”
Everyone started smiling.
Their minds felt relaxed now like they had just dropped off a ten thousand jin load.
One of the Elders asked in a worried manner: “What if he passes the assessment?”
“I was observing him. With a crippled dantian, there’s no way he can even pass the first round. Plus, he doesn’t even have any bloodline inheritance inside him so he won’t be able to pass the second round either. Therefore, there’s no way he can pass our assessments.” Elder Hun Yuan smiled confidently.
“Brilliant! What a brilliant plan!”
That kid will be kicked out tomorrow!
