Chapter 5 – My Sect Is Very Abnormal
Fixing a dantian requires treasures of heaven and earth?
This was said to be difficult, but for her… Yuan Chu smiled. Thinking of a place, she flew there directly.
Along the way, Ye Chenyuan’s horizons were broadened greatly by the bustling Heavenly Continent and the coming and going cultivators.
Although he had read many books, reading it in books and seeing it in person was a world of difference!
After a few days of interaction, Yuan Chu could calmly face Ye Chenyuan. The thought of it was truly miraculous; she was the big boss who specialized in fighting over stuff with him in her last life. In this life, she was his master… Therefore, her choices were very important!
She beckoned to him. “Little Yuan Yuan, because the place master is taking you is a bit dangerous and you don’t have any cultivation right now, you’ll have to stick close to me!”
Ye Chenyuan opened his mouth, but in the end still decided to ignore her nickname. He felt places with treasures of heaven and earth weren’t so easy to find. But since she promised so earnestly, he could only agree. “I understand, master.”
A gentle smile followed his words.
Yuan Chu nodded. That Ye Chenyuan could keep smiling despite all the suffering he went through was not bad at all.
Moreover… he was the protagonist! The more than two thousand word description of his appearance in the book was not written for nothing. Even at such a young age, he already possessed such an enchanting disposition. After the last two days of putting some meat on his bones, he was even more delicate and bewitching. Every one of his smiles was refreshing as a warm spring breeze.
Seeing Yuan Chu stare at him, Ye Chenyuan immediately handed over the roasted spirit animal meat in his hand…
That’s right! Yuan Chu was currently roasting kebabs on the (flying) Heavenly Ship, the only top-grade immortal tool she possessed which was also given to her by her mother.
If those old antiques in the Myriad Sword Sect found out, they would drown her in spit!
But Yuan Chu could care less! She beamingly took the proffered kebab and bit into it, reveling in the taste.
The male lead sure was the male lead. The meat roasted by the world’s most perfect man was just too delicious!
Seeing her eat so happily, Ye Chenyuan couldn’t help smiling. He realized this master did not only look like a child; she acted like one too. Watching her non-stop praising him as she ate, he felt like his master was really young, leading to his sometimes forgetting the proper etiquette between master and disciple.
“Master, you still haven’t told me which sect you’re from.”
Yuan Chu smacked her forehead at his reminder. But since her hand was covered in oil, it got all over her forehead. Just as she was about to use a cleaning art on herself, Ye Chenyuan’s napkin already reached her head.
The two froze.
Yuan Chu felt like she lost face! She was an adult, yet she was being taken care of by a child.
Ye Chenyuan was also a bit nervous. Master… wouldn’t accuse him of exceeding his boundaries, would she? How could he suddenly be so careless?
Who knew that after Yuan Chu froze for a moment, she then cast the matter to the back of her mind? “My sect sure is awesome! Have you ever heard of the first of the ten great immortal sects, the Myriad Sword Sect?”
Ye Chenyuan suppressed the nervousness in his heart. He pretended to be calm as he continued wiping Yuan Chu’s forehead. “I’ve heard of it, but…”
But the Myriad Sword Sect was famous for being strict. How could they produce such a lively and quick-witted honorable sir such as master?
Yuan Chu was so small it was pitiful, not even reaching his shoulders. Especially under such close distance, he seemed to be able to smell the milky fragrance on Yuan Chu. Was this really an eccentric old nascent soul who modeled her body like a child’s?
Startled, Ye Chenyuan hurriedly retreated to a side.
Of course, Yuan Chu didn’t notice his abnormality.
“But what?” She teasing smiled and continued his sentence. “But you heard that everyone in the Myriad Sword Sect was a cultivation-crazy old fogey with no worldly desires, and never thought that there would be such a genius like me?”
Ye Chenyuan couldn’t help laughing. He didn’t know why, but when he was with his master, he was always extraordinarily cheerful. Even his smile came from his heart.
He earnestly said, “Yes, I never thought that there was someone like Master in the Myriad Sword Sect. It sure is a prime example of hidden dragons, crouching tigers¹!”
Yuan Chu was filled with pride at his words. Her eyes shone!
“Let me tell you! Our sect… is so abnormal! Aren’t cultivators supposed to follow their heart’s desires? But the Myriad Sword Sect’s morning bell and evening drums are for disciples to learn to not be lazy. And those disciples all wear the same clothes and wield the same swords. Even their expressions are exactly the same! It’s downright terrifying!”
She shivered for a moment. She couldn’t stand those mass-produced replicas.
However, she patted Ye Chenyuan’s shoulder, saying somewhat arrogantly.
“Although the Myriad Sword Sect is scary, it’s still the first of the immortal sects! It’s much better than those something something heavenly law sects! And since you’re with me, you won’t need to worry about those stuffy rules. With me there, no one will dare to bully you!”
The male lead originally joined the Heavenly Law Sect, but he later exterminated the entire sect.
Ye Chenyuan could immediately tell that Yuan Chu’s position in the Myriad Sword Sect was high. “Many thanks for master’s protection.”
“Oh, come on! Stop being so stiff!” She couldn’t take his deadly earnest appearance anymore and hooked her little arm around his shoulder. She continued with boundless enthusiasm.
“You’ll accomplish great things in the future, but you’re too reserved. That won’t do. You have to learn from me; eat and drink in great mouthfuls! Doing whatever you’d like without restraint, that is life!”
With this, she held the kebab to his mouth.
Ye Chenyuan didn’t know whether he should laugh or cry. Seeing her lively eyes, he couldn’t help lowering his head to take a bite out of the kebab. The meat’s fragrance burst out on the tip of his tongue. There even seemed to be a hint of sweetness.
Yuan Chu watched him delicately eat and finally admitted defeat. It seemed that she had a lot to teach him!
They happily passed several days like this. Soon, the Heavenly Ship reached ocean. This ocean bordered upon the Heavenly Continent. On it were countless storms and whirlpools. Once sucked in, anyone under Nascent Soul stage was destined for death!
Now, they stopped before a whirlpool. All of the water around it spun around the whirlpool. And outside the Heavenly Ship was a whole region of thunder and lightning.
But Ye Chenyuan was not the least bit afraid. He asked Yuan Chu, “Master, is that what we’re looking for?”
Yuan Chu nodded. “We just have to go through this whirlpool to get to where I want to go. But this whirlpool has enormous destructive force. Corporeal bodies below Nascent Soul will be ripped apart, and I don’t seem to have anything that can protect you…”
Ye Chenyuan frowned. There were two spirit tools in the Sky Pearl that could get him through the whirlpool, but he couldn’t open the Sky Pearl right now. There was another way to open it… which was that he, as the master of the Sky Pearl, could share the Sky Pearl with someone. If he chose to share it with Master, then Master could use the items in the Sky Pearl.
