Chapter 107 – This is Fame
When hearing the name Jiang Chen, those who were making sorrowful noises on the ground immediately had a change in expression. Their faces turned grey, and they wished to slap themselves a few times.
This was what was called being blind as a bat, to have eyes but fail to recognize Mt Tai. You won’t die if you don’t look for trouble, but this could precisely be described as looking for trouble.
Feeling wrong after taking a beating? Serves you right!
Disciple Huang straight away started crying like a baby, what had he just done? He had been arrogant in front of senior disciple Jiang Chen, and he had even said he wanted to beat senior disciple Jiang Chen so much that even his mother wouldn’t recognize him. He was courting death.
Everyone gazed at the novice disciple who had just fainted. If looks could kill someone, then this disciple would have been killed a thousand times. If it wasn’t for this novice disciple asking for their help, there would have been no way for them to offend Jiang Chen.
This was Jiang Chen. Within just one day, his story had spread across the entire Black Sect. He had gotten first place in the Qi Province compet.i.tion, he had killed Ling Ao and Li Wu Shuang, and he had a fight with Nan Bei Chao in one year. Although they had yet to see Jiang Chen’s face, he had already been the idol of many of the Black Sect disciples.
‘d.a.m.n it, I had the audacity to offend the idol I had yet to meet… There’s nothing wrong with me being beaten until I looked like a pig’s head!’
Not only did they not feel wronged, these men even felt blessed. They were luckily disciples of the Black Sect, and thankfully, Jiang Chen showed mercy. They had heard that Jiang Chen was a cruel man. He dared to kill Ling Ao and Li Wu Shuang in front of Nan Bei Chao and Liang Xiao. Today they had provoked this Jiang Chen, and if he killed them with a slap, then there would be no place for them to complain. The sect wouldn’t punish a genius because of some outer circle disciples.
“All of you b.a.s.t.a.r.ds, hurry up and apologize to senior disciple Jiang! You should all be thankful that senior disciple Jiang is showing mercy!”
w.a.n.g Yun glanced around and scolded loudly.
Hearing this, those disciples didn’t dare show any hesitation. All of them struggled as they stood up from the ground. They couldn’t be blamed for this clumsy response, Jiang Chen had slapped them pretty hard, making it difficult for them to move.
After being slapped and still needing to climb up and apologize, supposing they would’ve felt wronged, but none of them felt wronged at all, just like what w.a.n.g Yun said, they should be thankful to Jiang Chen’s mercy, if it was according to senior disciple Jiang Chen’s approach, they would be dead corpses by now.
Jiang Chen casually waved his hand as he continued walking up the Black Mountain. Yan Chen Yu and Big Yellow followed behind him, proudly ascending the mountain.
w.a.n.g Yun showed a regretful expression when these disciple didn’t live up to Jiang Chen’s expectations, then he once again scolded disciple Huang before he started running to catch up with Jiang Chen.
Disciple Huang sat down on the ground again, he was just like a lost soul. His face had an expression of one feeling wronged. He felt like crying when he thought about his future position in the Black Sect. He let out another loud cry again.
d.a.m.n, he had offended Jiang Chen, how was he going to mix in with the rest of the disciples of the Black Sect in the future? Although he was also an outer circle disciple, could he really be compared with Jiang Chen? Although this was Jiang Chen’s first day here, his position amongst all outer circle disciples was not any weaker than Han Yan’s.
“f.u.c.king idiots! Who was the one in charge of guarding the mountain today?!”
Disciple Huang roared at all the disciples in front of him. It almost seemed like fire was going to shoot out from his eyes. His name was Huang Zheng, and he had been doing pretty well in the Black Sect. However, after what happened today, it could be said that his future was completely ruined.
“Senior disciple Huang, those three were supposed to guard the mountain today!”
One of the disciples pointed out the three novice disciple who were the ones in charge of protecting the mountain today. One of them immediately fainted, and when the other two saw that they were pointed out, their faces immediately turned grey, then they kneeled down on the ground because of fear.
“Senior disciple Huang, we’re sorry, we didn’t know that he was Jiang Chen!”
One of the disciples kept crying. When he recalled that he was checking out Yan Chen Yu in front of Jiang Chen, he started wis.h.i.+ng for himself to die.
“d.a.m.n it, do you have eyes where your b.u.t.t is? Can’t even recognize senior disciple Jiang, are you really guarding this place properly? I, your father, had his future ruined because of you three b.a.s.t.a.r.ds.”
Huang Zheng scolded with harsh words. He walked up and kicked these two disciples onto the ground.
Both of these disciples were crying out in sorrow. In their hearts, they couldn’t help but wish to scold back. Did you, Huang Zheng, recognize Jiang Chen just now? If you could recognize him, would your future be ruined? If you want to blame something, then you can blame your own dog’s eyes! This had nothing to do with us! Just look at that w.a.n.g Yun, perhaps he will get praised by senior disciple Jiang later, and will be protected by senior disciple Jiang in the future. Who would dare mess with him in the Black Sect then?
“Because of you three b.a.s.t.a.r.ds, we offended senior disciple Jiang! Let’s beat them!”
“That’s right! Let’s beat them until even their mothers can’t recognize them!”
The angry disciples had just found a method to release their anger; those three disciples in charge of guarding the mountain had instantly become their targets.
Bang bang bang…..
Ah ahh ahhh……
This was terrible. Nevertheless, this was human nature.
The guard trio had met ultimate misfortune today. They had never encountered anything like this before while they were standing guard. It was just their bad luck to encounter Jiang Chen today.
The unluckiest one was probably the novice disciple who had fainted. He was awakened because of the beating from the others, then he fainted once again because of the beating.
“That’s enough, stop beating them. There’s no use even if we beat them to death.”
Huang Zheng said. If they continued beating them, then these three would definitely die.
“Brothers, do you all still want to get along well in the Black Sect?”
Huang Zheng asked.
“Of course, it has always been my dream to be a part of the Black Sect!”
Someone amongst the disciples said. The Black Sect was one of the Qi Province’s four big sects, and joining it did not only represent one’s status, but being able to cultivate here was also much more beneficial than anywhere outside. There was an underground vein underneath the Black Mountain, this place couldn’t be compared with anywhere else. It didn’t matter if it was the natural Yuan energy in the air, or the cultivation resources, all the disciples on the spot had gone through hard effort in order to become disciples. Of course, every one of them wanted to continue staying in the Black Sect and have a good future.
“After offending senior disciple Jiang, you’re still thinking about how to get along well with him.”
Huang Zheng said again, then he looked at the three novice disciples rolling around on the ground making noises. He was trying his best to resist kicking them once again.
“Then what should we do, senior disciple Huang? Please give us advice!”
Someone said. The situation now was pretty obvious, Jiang Chen had taken first place in the Qi Province compet.i.tion, he had also killed Ling Ao from the Burning Sky Pavilion and Li Wu Shuang from the Heavenly Sword Sect, and he also had an agreement to fight Nan Bei Chao in one year. Such an outstanding genius who was just like Nan Bei Chao and couldn’t be found even in the last thousand years in the Qi Province, now that he had joined the Black Sect, he would definitely get lots of attention from the management. Jiang Chen would just need to mention this event, and none of them would be able to continue staying here.
Even worse, Jiang Chen might not need to say anything. If today’s events were known by others, they would all become public enemies and become the other disciple’s targets. At that point of time, there would surely be someone who wanted to lick Jiang Chen’s boots and find trouble with them. If this truly happened, then they would have a hard time in the sect.
“I’ll go find senior disciple w.a.n.g Yun later and ask him to help us arrange a meeting with senior disciple Jiang Chen. All of us will go and apologize to senior disciple Jiang Chen! At that time, all of you will need to pay some price, take out some Mortal Restoration Pills or treasures that you think are valuable. With senior disciple Jiang’s status, I’m sure he won’t really bother about what happened!”
Huang Zheng continued, “Now let me ask you all, if any of you are unwilling to go or are unwilling to take out money, stand out now!”
Who dares to stand out? Who is unwilling? If some money was enough to solve this disastrous situation, they’ll get exactly what they’ve been hoping for.
Besides, most of the disciples on the spot were from big families in the Qi Province. Those who could come to the Black Sect and cultivate usually had families that were doing quite well, they didn’t really mind paying some price.
“All of us are willing to do this! Senior disciple Huang, we’ll just let you handle this.”
“Fine, carry these three b.a.s.t.a.r.ds as well. Later, ask them if they agree or not.”
Huang Zheng angrily gazed at the trio who were lying on the ground. Nevertheless, he was still thinking about helping them. This proves that Huang Zheng could still be considered a nice guy. If he brought everyone except for the trio to apologize to Jiang Chen, then the trio wouldn’t be able to get along well in the sect in the future.
Being led by w.a.n.g Yun, Jiang Chen and the other two crossed the outer perimeter of the Black Mountain and arrived at the place where all outer circle disciples were staying.
There were a lot of mountains within the Black Mountain range. From the border where the novice disciples were, to the outer circle disciples’ region, then to the inner circle disciples’ zone; they all had their own respective territories.
Besides, the deeper one went, the richer the natural Yuan energies were. This would no doubt serve to increase the healthy compet.i.tion among the disciples.
“Senior disciple Jiang, senior disciple Guan Yi Yun has specifically arranged a special place for senior disciple Jiang to stay and cultivate. He has also ordered that no matter whoever receives senior disciple Jiang, they can not show any neglect. Being able to personally receive senior disciple Jiang, this is truly I, w.a.n.g Yun’s honor!”
w.a.n.g Yun said.
“Where is Han Yan?”
Jiang Chen asked.
“Senior disciple Han immediately entered closed door cultivation upon returning. However, before he began his closed door cultivation, he had had informed all of us, and now everyone in the Black Sect knows that senior disciple Jiang and senior disciple Han are good brothers! I heard that senior disciple Guan Yi Yun also entered closed door cultivation upon returning. Besides, senior disciple Guan has a high position in the sect, and he normally won’t come to the outer circle disciples’ zone. He is someone we all look up to, and this time he came here personally to make arrangements, and this was all because of senior disciple Jiang!”
w.a.n.g Yun said. What he said was pretty obvious, from now on, every single outer circle disciple would take Jiang Chen as their leader. A strong man would be followed blindly no matter where he went, this was one fact that could be applied everywhere.
Jiang Chen nodded his head. Han Yan and Guan Yi Yun entering secluded cultivation at the same time was expected by him. The Ancient Devil in Han Yan’s body was going to awaken, and after this secluded cultivation session, he would be able to break through to the Heavenly Core realm.
As for Guan Yi Yun, he was defeated by Nan Bei Chao in the Qi Province compet.i.tion with just a single strike. His confidence had surely suffered greatly. As a prideful man who would never admit defeat, he wouldn’t allow this to happen again. Therefore, Guan Yi Yun should be attempting to break through to the Divine Core realm during his secluded cultivation.
“Eh, who is that guy? He doesn’t look like someone from our Black Sect, and w.a.n.g Yun is even following behind, it looks like he is being very respectful towards that guy.”
“That’s right, I have never seen him before. A young man who can make senior disciple w.a.n.g Yun nod and bow, I guess he must be someone important.”
“I know! That’s Jiang Chen, I’m sure he is Jiang Chen!”
Along the way, they met a lot of outer circle disciples. All of them were clueless about w.a.n.g Yun’s behaviour, but soon, someone managed to guess Jiang Chen’s ident.i.ty.
