No Way Anyone Believes That My Master Is A Mortal? - Chapter 27
In the Daoless Sect’s main hall…
Chu Yuan looked at the cultured and refined young man before him.
Chu Yuan was about to start hoodwinking again.
Although Zhang Han and Ye Luo’s situation was different, Chu Yuan would never repeat the same mistake. He wanted to completely hoodwink him. He wanted to hoodwink him in a way that made it completely impossible for him to comprehend anything.
He had used his Dharmic powers to slash toward the sky the last time when he had hoodwinked Ye Luo. This time, however, he was going to rely on his mouth only.
If Zhang Han could still figure something out, he would call him his father!
When Chu Yuan thought that, he put on a carefree expression and said, “Han’er, tell me, which of the 3,000 great Daos do you want to cultivate?”
You can choose any of the great Daos to learn. I don’t know any of them anyway.
When Zhang Han heard this, he pondered for a moment. Then, he gently said, “Master, this disciple wishes to focus on the path of cultivation and array formations…
“However, my spirit root has been destroyed. Master, please bestow me with a cultivation technique.”
A bolt of lightning had destroyed Zhang Han’s spirit root, and he could not cultivate at all for the past ten years.
If he wanted to cultivate, he had to recover his spirit root.
The reason he had taken Chu Yuan as his Master was precisely because the latter had said that he could help him solve his inability to cultivate.
When Chu Yuan, who was sitting on the main hall’s throne, heard those words, the scene of Ye Luo’s arrival into the sect inexplicably surfaced in his mind.
What they said seemed to be similar?
No, no. I must be the one overthinking things.
“Han’er, it’s very simple for me to solve your problem. However, I can’t solve it for you right now.
“If you want to join the Daoless Sect, you need to meditate on the Dao for a year before you can cultivate. That’s the rule. Look outside at your Eldest Senior Brother. He has to undergo the same process and is spending every day and night trying to gain enlightenment. Although he hasn’t even been here for a year, he’s already become quite powerful!”
Chu Yuan spoke softly as he extended his finger from his wide sleeve and pointed outside the hall.
He realized for the first time… Ye Luo was still useful.
He was perfect as an example.
In the future, if he were to hoodwink his disciples, his credibility would be even higher.
Look, I’ve already successfully taught a disciple. If you can’t comprehend the Dao, it’s definitely your problem. It has nothing to do with me!
However, for Ye Luo to become a good example, he had lost a major realm.
Just thinking about it made his heart ache…
Zhang Han was shocked to hear that his Eldest Senior Brother had yet to cultivate and was merely comprehending the Dao.
Without cultivating to become an immortal, how could one possess such oppressive might? How could comprehending the Dao have such a powerful effect? Why hadn’t he heard of it before?
Zhang Han slapped his head. This was a powerful sect. How could he compare it to his family? It was normal that he had never heard of it.
Besides, it was said that some truly powerful sects had secret inheritances. Perhaps this was the secret of the Daoless Sect.
“Master, I intend to cultivate the Dao of Array Formations!” Zhang Han said gently without hesitation.
The Dao of Array Formations?
Chu Yuan was stunned, but he quickly came back to his senses and said casually,
“Master does have some knowledge regarding the Dao of Array Formations. However, it cannot be taught to you so easily, even if you are my disciple.
“How about this? Master will ask you a question. If you answer it correctly, Master will then teach you the Dao of Array Formations.”
He had to create the right atmosphere before hoodwinking. If he were to start randomly explaining the Dao of Array Formations, wouldn’t it make it easier for others to see that he was merely hoodwinking?
Besides, what if Zhang Han asked him to show an example of what he had said?
If he could create the right atmosphere, it would be much easier to fool him.
As for Zhang Han, his eyes instantly lit up after listening to what his Master had said.
A question regarding array formations?
Although he did not have a spirit root, he was confident he had sufficient knowledge on the topic of array formations. He was confident in his Dao of Array Formations.
Thus, Zhang Han cupped his hands and said, “Master, please ask!”
Chu Yuan stood up and walked to the entrance of the hall with his back facing Zhang Han.
A gentle breeze blew past him, and his snow-white robe and long hair fluttered in the wind. His temperament had inexplicably risen.
“Let me ask you, what exactly is the Dao of Array Formations?”
Chu Yuan tilted his head slightly and glanced at Zhang Han from the corner of his eye.
What was the Dao of Array Formations?
Zhang Han’s eyes turned hazy. Ever since he was young, he had enjoyed studying array formations, and he thus had a deep understanding of many various types of array formations.
But to ask him what the Dao of Array Formations was?
This had confused him.
What exactly was the Dao of Array Formations?
Upon facing Chu Yuan’s gaze, Zhang Han subconsciously lowered his head, not daring to look at him directly.
Time slowly passed…
Ten minutes passed…
Zhang Han’s head was still lowered. No one knew what he was thinking.
Chu Yuan could not hold it in anymore. He had become extremely bored.
Please, I do not want to continue wasting time here with you.
Chu Yuan could not help but ask, “Have you thought it through?”
Zhang Han raised his head and said with some uncertainty, “Master, does the Dao of Array Formations lie in the formation itself? Once the array formation is set up, one would be invincible and be able to fend off a thousand enemies by oneself—”
Chu Yuan didn’t even finish listening before rejecting the answer.
Who cares if he’s right or not?
I am just going to reject every answer you give. I have to create the right atmosphere.
How could he admit that Zhang Han was right?
Therefore, no matter what Zhang Han said, he was going to reject it.
Zhang Han paused for a moment before continuing, “Master, the Dao of Array Formations is about using array formations as the core—”
“Master, the Dao of Array Formations is about transformation. Array formations should be ever-changing—”
“Master, the Dao of array formations is…”
“Master, this disciple is slow-witted and does not know the answer.”
Zhang Han, “???”
Master, are you alright?
Chu Yuan also came to a realization and said without a hint of embarrassment, “If you can’t answer, it’s also considered wrong. Do you have any doubts?”
To be honest, he had been too used to rejecting Zhang Han’s answer that the words had come out of his mouth before he even processed them through his brain.
To say that it was just a slip of the tongue?
If he were to say this to his disciple, this disciple of his would definitely have to leave the sect.
Zhang Han was stunned for a moment. He bowed elegantly and said, “Master, your disciple is slow-witted and does not understand the Dao of Array Formations. I hope that Master can answer my doubts.”
Chu Yuan lifted his head and looked at the sky outside the hall. He remained silent for a long time.
“The most important aspect of the Dao of Array Formations is the Dao. Array formations are dead, but the Dao is alive. Array formations can be broken, but the Dao can’t be broken. Array formations may not exist, but the Dao will always exist. The Dao of Array Formations lies in the Dao, not the array formation itself. I want you to comprehend the Dao. Choosing to focus on the Dao of Array Formations does not mean you are supposed to focus on comprehending every different type of array formation. Do you understand now?”
Chu Yuan spoke slowly, his tone deep and profound.
Then, he glanced at Zhang Han cautiously. He was relieved when he realized that Zhang Han was in a daze.
You don’t understand?
It’s normal that you do not understand what I am saying.
Indeed, the highest realm of hoodwinking was to hoodwink till even I do not understand what I am saying…
