No Way Anyone Believes That My Master Is A Mortal? - Chapter 14
At Silvermoon City, in the Drunken Immortal Inn…
A table full of dishes and fine wine was in front of Chu Yuan.
The fat shopkeeper at the side was like a mudflat as he respectfully waited by the side with an extremely stiff smile on his face.
“Boss, if I had known that you were at the Nascent Soul stage before, I wouldn’t have dared to offend you!
“Erm, the sign at the door was merely a joke. Big boss, don’t be angry. Hey, someone, take off the notice outside. However, leave the portrait behind and write that this person will be forever welcome to our humble inn! On top of that, add on that the person on the portrait does not need to pay a dime for anything in this inn!”
After the fat shopkeeper learned that Chu Yuan was a supreme existence at the Nascent Soul stage, he had no choice but to do what he needed to do.
He immediately cleared the inn and served all the dishes available in the inn to Chu Yuan.
He was afraid that he would make this Nascent Soul bigshot unhappy and that he would destroy his inn with a slap.
Chu Yuan, on the other hand, patted the fat shopkeeper’s shoulder happily and said with a smile, “Right? I knew it. Our friendship is so deep. You can’t have possibly turned hostile so quickly.”
The fat shopkeeper smiled in reply.
“Yes, yes, yes. We do indeed have a deep friendship. A deep friendship.”
However, the fat shopkeeper was complaining in his heart.
If I were a Nascent Soul mighty figure and you were the shopkeeper, would our friendship still be deep as you say?
If I were at the Nascent Soul stage, I would make you understand what it means to tear our friendship apart.
Chu Yuan smiled and took a sip of wine. “Alright, shopkeeper, I won’t hide it from you anymore. I’m the Sect Leader of a sect. This time, I have come down the mountain to take in more disciples. Since you have a wide range of connections, I have decided to come here to ask you for your advice.”
A Sect Leader?
Was there a sect with a Nascent Soul cultivator nearby Silvermoon City?
The fat shopkeeper recalled carefully and realized that he did not know of such a sect.
The sects near Silvermoon City were all small grade-9 sects. Foundation Establishment cultivators were already a rarity, so how could there be a Nascent Soul cultivator?
One had to know that a sect required nine disciples and a Qi Refining cultivator to be considered a grade-9 sect.
Further up would be the grade-8 sect. It required 30 disciples, of which 10 needed to be at the Qi Refinement stage. On top of that, the Sect Leader had to be at the Foundation Establishment stage…
The higher the grade, the higher the requirements.
To have a Nascent Soul existence meant that the sect he was in was a grade-6 sect! Or perhaps a grade-5 sect?
The fat shopkeeper sucked in a breath of cold air.
He had actually scolded a grade-6 sect’s Sect Leader!
He was clearly seeking death!
However, this incident alone was enough for him to brag for his entire life.
The fat shopkeeper said slowly, “So that’s how it is. Big boss, you’ve indeed found the right person. No one has greater connections than me in this city. Since you are taking in disciples, I’ll introduce you to some people. There are quite a few geniuses in Silvermoon City. For example, Lin Fan, who is known as the number one genius of Silvermoon City, has a Fire Spirit Root…”
However, when Chu Yuan heard these words, he rolled his eyes. He did not want a genius.
If a genius were to appear, he would drop by a major realm.
Beneath the Nascent Soul stage was… the Golden Core stage?
If he really took in a genius, what would happen to him?
Other cultivators would normally break their Golden Core to give birth to a Nascent Soul. Would he break his Nascent Soul to give birth to a Golden Core instead?
When Chu Yuan thought of the scene, he couldn’t help but shiver. He hurriedly said, “I don’t want these geniuses! I want information on those ‘trash’ cultivators, people like Ye Luo from the last time.”
The fat shopkeeper was stunned.
You do not want geniuses? You just want ‘trash’ cultivators?
What kind of logic is that?
He looked at Chu Yuan’s serious expression and started to think carefully.
A moment later, the fat shopkeeper clapped his hands and said, “Trash cultivators… Boss, I’ve heard some news regarding this before. In Springfield City, next to Silvermoon City, there’s a genius who has a deep understanding of array formations. It’s said that he was able to set up some low-level array formations when he was merely eight years old.
“It’s said that this array formation genius possesses a Heaven Spirit Root. However, when he was ten years old, he was struck by a bolt of lightning by accident, and his Heaven Spirit Root was completely destroyed. From then on, he was unable to cultivate and was reduced to a piece of trash.”
The fat shopkeeper sighed as he spoke.
An array genius who possessed a Heaven Spirit Root would have most likely reached the Nascent Soul stage or even the Soul Formation stage when he grew up.
Unfortunately, even the heavens were jealous of him.
A bolt of lightning had destroyed the genius.
Chu Yuan’s eyes lit up, and he almost slapped the table in happiness.
It’s coming! Another small cultivation realm was walking toward him.
This was simply a disciple meant for him!
Since a bolt of lightning had struck his spirit root, it meant that he no longer had any spirit root!
If he couldn’t even cultivate, he would be another Ye Luo! As long as he managed to hoodwink him for a year, he would get the reward he wanted easily.
“Alright! What is this genius called? What is his exact location?”
Chu Yuan was extremely excited as he was about to take in a useless disciple again. His cultivation realm could increase again.
The fat shopkeeper replied respectfully, “Boss, his name is Zhang Han. He is currently at Springfield City, in the Zhang family’s mansion. Furthermore, I don’t think his status is very high. After all, he is a piece of trash.”
Chu Yuan did not hesitate and left the inn in a flash, preparing to head to Springfield City.
Before leaving, he left a message for the fat shopkeeper.
“You and I hit it off at first sight. Talking about money hurts relationships. Since you’ve said that everything is free for me in this inn, I can’t let you down either. It’s just that I don’t come here often, so I can’t waste this privilege.
“How about this? In the future, when my sect’s disciples come to Silvermoon City, they’ll all come to visit this inn. You can give them my privileges. Alright, old friend, we’ll meet again!”
Chu Yuan left these words behind and drifted away in a carefree manner.
The fat shopkeeper was so angry that his face even turned green. He had never seen such a shameless Nascent Soul powerhouse before!
It was not enough for him to freeload in his inn—he even wanted to drag his entire sect to freeload!
This, this, this…
Was he even a human?
At the same time, in the Qian Emperor Dao Sect’s main hall…
The Grand Elder was holding the portrait, while the Sect Leader of the Qian Emperor Dao Sect and the other Elders were all looking at it.
“This is a painting formed from my sect’s secret technique? Hiss! Who is in this painting? How terrifying. He dares to even hold the sun, moon, and stars in his hand!”
“No, shouldn’t you be looking at the background of this person? This darkness seems to be the result of breaking space. What kind of existence is this person? He can actually break space and grab the sun and moon!”
“Am I the only one who thinks this person looks a little handsome?”
“With the stars in his hand, he can pluck the sun and moon. There is no one like him in this world! What arrogance!”
Many Elders were amazed. They did not sense anything much except that this person was very handsome and pretty arrogant.
Sect Leader Qian Yuan stared at the portrait and asked, “Is this… someone from the hidden sect, the Daoless Sect?”
The Grand Elder was expressionless as he nodded solemnly. He then told everyone present about everything that had happened near Sky Mist Mountain.
Of course, the part where he had had a conversation with Ye Luo in a ‘kind’ tone was naturally left out.
How could he let others know?
He was the Grand Elder! He still had to protect his dignity!
