Chapter 390 – This Kid Is Too Arrogant
All the disciples on the martial training field had stopped breathing. With their necks stretched tautly, they were all staring unblinkingly as the divine mirror slowly absorbed the blood essence.
One’s dantian can be poor or even crippled.
But as long as your bloodline inheritance was capable of shocking everyone, you can also stay!
Venerable Hun Yuan and Tian Yuan came a little closer. Seeing Luo Tian’s face filled with confidence, their hearts seem to have risen up to their throats. They were saying internally: “This kid shouldn’t have some type of powerful bloodline inheritance, right?”
“We definitely can’t let him stay!”
The other Elders all had gloomy expressions.
Over ten thousand people had focused their attention on the divine mirror.
The drop of blood essence gradually disappeared.
Xu Shan didn’t blink like he was afraid of missing the results. The moment the blood essence fully disappeared, the divine mirror didn’t have any reaction like it had just absorbed a drop of ordinary blood. Xu Shan subconsciously blurted out: “Normal bloodline, no inheritance!”
“Normal bloodline, no inheritance!”
The sound of his voice was like a tsunami sweeping outwards.
“What I said was correct, right? How could that kid have a special inherited bloodline? That’s simply impossible.”
“His dantian is crippled and he doesn’t have a special bloodline. Kid, quickly scram off the mountain. This isn’t a place where trash like you should be staying at.”
“Quickly scram and stop embarrassing yourself here. Mount Hua Immortal Sect can’t afford to lose face with you around. If other immortal sects knew, we will definitely be ridiculed like crazy. I really don’t understand why Elder Wu Nian would bring a piece of trash up our mountain.”
Mockery! Mockery with zeal!
This was mockery without holding anything back.
They no longer had any scruples. A crippled dantian and no inherited bloodline – just based on those two assessments could determine Luo Tian’s death penalty. There’s no way Luo Tian will be able to join Mount Hua Immortal Sect anymore.
Venerable Hun Yuan and the other inner sect Elders felt their minds relax. They all had a cheerful smile on their faces like they had just solved the biggest problem of their life.
From their point of view, having Luo Tian leave Mount Hua Immortal Sect will automatically solve their world’s biggest problem.
They were afraid of Starsea Immortal Sect.
They were afraid Starsea Immortal Sect would send a punitive expedition over. If that really were to happen, handing Luo Tian over to them will still not be good enough to appease them.
Now that he had failed both rounds, Luo Tian didn’t have a legitimate reason nor was he qualified to stay.
Venerable Hun Yuan was smiling smugly as he said: “What else do you have to say for yourself? According to the rules left by our ancestors, you have been eliminated. Now get down the mountain for me. And you can forget about the 20 top grade xuan stones. I already gave you that chance but you didn’t cherish it. Now you’re being laughed at by everyone. Why did you choose to do this to yourself?”
“This place doesn’t welcome you.”
“You’re nothing but a scourge if you stay here.”
“Elder Wu Nian must have been cheated by this kid, or else why would he bring him up the mountain?”
Many outer sect disciples were taunting and jeering at the sides.
Not a single Elder tried to stop them.
Luo Tian wasn’t even a member of Mount Hua Immortal Sect so they would naturally not make any effort to stop their disciples from taunting him.
Luo Tian faintly smiled and didn’t leave. He looked at Venerable Hun Yuan and said: “Grand Elder – since you keep talking about sect rules established by the ancestors, you should know there’s one rule where prospective disciples with special talents can be recruited by exception.”
“The sect rules specify special talents as Pill concocting talent, engraving arrays talent, forging equipment talent, taming spiritual beast talent etc… a total of eighteen special talents. Grand Elder, did I say anything wrong?”
Neither fast nor slow; neither humble nor haughty.
Luo Tian had a well-thought-out plan. He maintained a confident smile on his face and ignored the ridiculing from the crowd. Why should he bother with a group of clowns?
Venerable Hun Yuan’s expression hiddenly changed as he asked: “You just came to Mount Hua Immortal Sect yesterday so how do you know of such a sect rule?”
Luo Tian smiled and replied: “What’s important isn’t how I know; the key is whether you’re aware of the sect rule or not. If you do know about it, then I am requesting to be assessed on my special talent.”
Luo Tian didn’t know much about them but he was super clear on this one.
On their journey here, Wu Nian already guessed something like this would happen. That’s why he already had Luo Tian learn of this sect rule beforehand.
In Heavenly Sword City, Luo Tian concocted the improved Profound Burst Pill and concocted countless Healing Pills. Venerable Wu Nian was able to get a hold of one of them and found that they were medicinal pills near perfection. Even the Alchemist Grandmasters of the immortal sects couldn’t compare with Luo Tian.
Because of this, Wu Nian wanted to use this method so that Luo Tian could stay at Mount Hua Immortal Sect.
Luo Tian was feeling all sorts of emotions right now. “If I hadn’t promised you beforehand, this daddy would’ve already started raging already.”
Wu Nian had done a lot for him.
Luo Tian promised him so he couldn’t disappoint Wu Nian.
“Is there such a sect rule?”
“How come I’ve never heard about it?”
“How does this kid know of the rules of our Mount Hua Immortal Sect?”
Sounds of discussion were heard everywhere.
Venerable Hun Yuan had a blank expression. Mount Hua Immortal Sect had a lot of sect rules so he wasn’t particularly clear if they had this rule or not.
Xu Shan cupped his fists and carefully chose his words: “Responding to Grand Elder: Mount Hua Immortal Sect’s 58th rule is what he’s talking about, relating to people with special talents. Those that pass the special assessment will meet the conditions for recruitment.”
Venerable Hun Yuan coldly glanced at Xu Shan before scoffing: “Luo Tian, you still refuse to give up huh? Your unyielding attitude is indeed worthy of others to learn from, but you should only insist on things that you are capable of. Do you really think this is possible?”
“With a cripple dantian, can you even concoct pills? Forge equipment? Engrave arrays?”
“These things are something you cannot do, so why keep dragging the inevitable? Just quickly leave. You are the only one losing face if you keep dragging things out. Didn’t you hear the sounds of ridicule from the crowd? What’s the point to keep staying here?”
Concocting pills with a crippled dantian?
Forging xuan weapons?
Isn’t this all a joke?
It was completely impossible.
This knowledge was something even a three year old child knew. The crowd really didn’t know why Luo Tian would continue insisting on staying.
Venerable Tian Yuan coldly sneered and said: “Grand Elder, just let him take the test if he wants to. I refuse to believe he can change the outcome. A dead fish wishes to defy the heavens? I haven’t seen such a thing in my entire life.”
Luo Tian sneered and said: “I have no idea whether a dead fish can defy the heavens or not. The only thing I know is that you will be speechless later on.”
As his voice faded, he turned to Venerable Hun Yuan and said: “I heard it very clearly; the majority of the people here have been ridiculing me. This also means the more that I have to prove to them.”
“And the meaning behind your words…”
“Can’t I just slap their faces?”
Luo Tian’s expression became overbearing while his eyes turned wildly arrogant.
Venerable Hun Yuan’s expression became gloomy as he said: “We have never recruited disciples with special talents in the past, so how do you wish to be assessed?”
Luo Tian replied: “You can send out anyone you feel that aren’t too bad… Alchemy Grandmasters, Forging Grandmasters, Array Grandmasters, Healing Grandmasters, etc. Send them all out. You will see my special talent once I compete with each of them one on one, right?”
Challenging that many at once?!
The expression on those Elders instantly became an ugly looking. This kid was way too arrogant!
