Chapter 108 - Guidance
A young man whom no one had met before was able to make w.a.n.g Yun, a Late Mortal Core warrior, bow his head. Perhaps only the rising star Jiang Chen would be able to do this. It was a pretty good guess.
Right at this moment, two outer circle disciple walked up from ahead. When they saw Jiang Chen, they immediately greeted him.
“Senior disciple Jiang Chen, you have settled your matters! That was fast!”
“Welcome to the Black Sect, senior disciple Jiang Chen! I hope that senior disciple Jiang Chen can guide us in the future!”
The two of them bowed their heads. With this, Jiang Chen’s ident.i.ty had been confirmed. Those who hadn’t partic.i.p.ated in the Qi Province compet.i.tion all had their eyes wide open as they looked at Jiang Chen from head to toe.
“Heavens! He is Jiang Chen, he looks so young, perhaps only 15-16 years old!”
“I heard he killed Ling Ao and Li Wu Shuang while he was only an Early Mortal Core warrior! This man looks so delicate and handsome, it’s hard to think that he is such a fierce man!”
“Lower your voice, senior disciple Jiang Chen will be the outer circle disciples’ leader in the future. He has a fight with Nan Bei Chao one year from now, and he will surely get all the attention from the top management!”
“Wow! Senior disciple Jiang Chen is so handsome, it would be nice if I could be his girlfriend!”
“Get lost! You haven’t even seen your own face, open your eyes and look at that purple clothed girl beside Jiang Chen, she should be senior disciple Yan Chen Yu. If senior disciple Yan is the swan, then you can’t even be compared with a wild goose! Only this kind of girl can match senior disciple Jiang!”
The surrounding disciples’ discussions became heated. Although people were communicating privately with quiet voices, Jiang Chen had good hearing, so he heard every single word spoken. He couldn’t help but laugh and shake his head. He had never expected that even before coming to the Black Sect, he would already become so famous.
Obviously, his fame was spread out by those outer circle disciples who had partic.i.p.ated in the Qi Province compet.i.tion. The Black Sect was only so big, and a big event such as the Qi Province compet.i.tion, it wouldn’t take more than an hour before even the lowest ranked disciple knew the result.
“Alright, alright, carry on with your own matters. Senior disciple Jiang has gone through a long a journey, I will need to bring him to his residence. In the future, if you have any questions regarding cultivation, senior disciple Jiang will show you some guidance.”
w.a.n.g Yun waved at the disciples, then he continued leading Jiang Chen towards the inner part.
Along the way, they met quite a number of disciples who had partic.i.p.ated in the Qi Province compet.i.tion. All of them happily greeted Jiang Chen when they saw him. The disciples of the Black Sect weren’t idiots, pleasing Jiang Chen may not give them any advantages, but it surely wouldn’t bring them any disadvantages either.
Not to mention his relations.h.i.+p with the Little Devil King Han Yan and Guan Yi Yun, just Jiang Chen’s way of doing things alone made him deserving of all the respect.
“Kid, I never expected you to be so famous here. Even I, your father’s glory has been overshadowed by yours, you’re too presumptuous.”
Big Yellow said with a hint of dissatisfaction.
“Don’t speak if you’ve got nothing to say.”
Jiang Chen gazed at Big Yellow. If this dog could behave a little better in the Black Sect, then Jiang Chen would be glad.
“Puppy dog, this is the Black Sect, you better not mess around.”
Yan Chen Yu patted Big Yellow’s head and reminded him.
After following w.a.n.g Yun for a bit, they arrived at the outer circle disciples’ living quarters.
The living quarters for the outer circle disciples were located between the mountains. They were lined up in rows of fine courtyards and ancient buildings.
“Senior disciple Jiang, these are the living quarters for our outer circle disciples. They are normally in the form of courtyards, and the buildings are connected to the underground energy vein. Normally, six people will stay in one living quarter within a courtyard. Late Mortal Core disciples can own an entire courtyard for themselves, and those who break through to the Heavenly Core realm will enter the inner circle.”
w.a.n.g Yun said.
“Who is staying in the same living quarter as me?”
Jiang Chen asked with a smile.
“Senior disciple Jiang is making fun of me. Although you haven’t reached the Late Mortal Core realm yet, but with your abilities, you can defeat every single outer circle disciple here. Therefore, senior disciple Guan Yi Yun had specifically ordered us to prepare the best living quarter for senior disciple Jiang.”
w.a.n.g Yun led Jiang Chen past the area where all the living quarters were located. Behind the living quarters, a very fine courtyard was built. It was located at the top of the mountain, isolated from the living quarters’ area. It was surrounded by mountains and rivers, and there was even a waterfall nearby. The scene was very soothing, the natural Yuan energy was rich, and it was isolated from all the noise coming from the living quarters’ area. This was simply the best place for cultivation.
“Wow, this place is so beautiful!”
Yan Chen Yu was standing on the mountain top where she could view the entire Black Mountain. The feeling of having the view of all the mountains underneath her feet made her feel happy and relaxed.
There were a total of three well built rooms within the courtyard. Aside from Jiang Chen and Yan Chen Yu, even Big Yellow would be able to have a room of his own. This kind of treatment was unique amongst the outer circle disciples.
Pus.h.i.+ng the door open, the decorations in the room were simple. Aside from a bed, there was only a golden praying mat right in the middle of the room. 
“Senior disciple Jiang, this praying mat can communicate directly with the underground energy vein. Cultivating on top of it can yield twice the result with half the effort!”
w.a.n.g Yun explained. This futon was specifically prepared for Jiang Chen by Guan Yi Yun. Amongst all the outer circle disciples, aside from Han Yan, only Jiang Chen had this special privilege.
“En, not bad, senior disciple Guan is very kind.”
Jiang Chen nodded his head. He felt very thankful to Guan Yi Yun in his mind. The residence he had arranged for him was very unique.
“Is senior disciple Jiang satisfied with this place?”
w.a.n.g Yun asked with a smile.
“En, not bad. w.a.n.g Yun, what cultivation skill are you cultivating?”
Jiang Chen looked at w.a.n.g Yun.
w.a.n.g Yun was startled. He didn’t know why Jiang Chen would suddenly ask him about his cultivation skill.
“Senior disciple Jiang, I am cultivating the ‘Water Breaking Script’ from the Black Sect, it is a High Ranked Mortal cultivation skill.”
w.a.n.g Yun replied.
“You’re lying, you’re not cultivating the ‘Water Breaking Script’.”
Jiang Chen casually pulled a chair and sat down on it without even looking at w.a.n.g Yun.
But w.a.n.g Yun’s expression had changed dramatically. He stood still, and he didn’t show a slight hint of his energy, and Jiang Chen was actually able to tell that he wasn’t cultivating the ‘Water Breaking Script’.
“Let me ask you, during the last three months, when the time reaches midnight, does your ‘Origin Pa.s.s’ acupuncture point start hurting? Even worse, during the last few days, has the pain become unbearable?”
Jiang Chen asked.
Now, w.a.n.g Yun’s expression had completely changed. He opened his eyes widely and stared at Jiang Chen. With a trembling voice he asked, “You, how do you know that?”
“Hmph! Still trying to lie to me when you have cultivated wrongly. With your current condition, it wouldn’t take more than two months before you die because of psychosis. Now tell me, what skill are you cultivating?”
Jiang Chen let out a cold snort. If it wasn’t for w.a.n.g Yun behaving well today, he wouldn’t bother showing him any guidance at all.
Hearing that he would die within two months because of psychosis, w.a.n.g Yun kneeled down in front of Jiang Chen, and without daring to hide anything else, he said, “Senior disciple Jiang is truly a genius, you were able to tell my symptoms with just a look! You’re right, the ‘Water Breaking Skill’ is just a cover up method. I am cultivating a Mid Ranked Earth skill called the ‘Cloudy Rock Skill’. I obtained this skill by accident during an expedition. An Earth ranked skill is much more valuable than a Mortal ranked skill, and I was unable to resist its temptation, so I began cultivating it. This skill is really weird, and I have no idea what went wrong. Three months ago, I began feeling pain in my ‘Origin Pa.s.s’ acupuncture point, and to this day, the pain has reached an unbearable state. Please, senior disciple Jiang, I beg of you to save my life!”
If w.a.n.g Yun previously only felt fear towards Jiang Chen, then he had now begun wors.h.i.+pping Jiang Chen like a G.o.d.
“Circulate your ‘Cloudy Rock Skill’.”
Jiang Chen said indifferently.
w.a.n.g Yun didn’t dare show any neglect, he immediately begun circulating the ‘Cloudy Rock Skill’. A cold breeze emerged from his body which contained a slight evil feeling. Jiang Chen looked at him carefully and found out that when w.a.n.g Yun began circulating the ‘Cloudy Rock Skill’, there was an evil light within his eyes. That was a symptom of psychosis.
Jiang Chen asked w.a.n.g Yun to stop circulating the skill and said, “The ‘Cloudy Rock Skill’ by itself is a skill more partial towards yin and coldness. Although it can’t be considered a modest skill, but it’s not an evil skill either. Nevertheless, you have entered the wrong path, turning it into an evil skill. When you first obtained the ‘Cloudy Rock Skill’, you were absorbing the natural Yin Qi at night, and you even absorbed some evil Yin Qi. Cultivating the ‘Cloudy Rock Skill’ with this method can indeed give you a cultivation boost for a short period of time, but because of this, you have also destroyed yourself.
“Mighty senior disciple Jiang, please save me senior disciple Jiang!”
w.a.n.g Yun kept kowtowing to Jiang Chen. The only thing he felt for Jiang Chen right now was that he was a man he highly admired. He had only circulated the ‘Cloudy Rock Skill’ once, and Jiang Chen was really able to tell how he had been cultivating it. w.a.n.g Yun felt like he was a transparent man in front of Jiang Chen, he couldn’t hide any secrets in front of him.
In w.a.n.g Yun’s mind, the young man who sat in the chair in front of him was not a young man any more, but a wise senior who was able to do anything. With just a few words he had made him know the seriousness of the skill that he had been cultivating.
“Stand up and walk towards me.”
Jiang Chen said.
w.a.n.g Yun stood up, then he moved closer to Jiang Chen and respectfully stood in front of him, it was as if he was a child who had just done something wrong.
“I told you just now, the ‘Cloudy Rock Skill’ by itself is a skill that’s more partial towards yin and coldness, but it isn’t an evil skill. You previously cultivated the ‘Water Breaking Skill’, and with this as the foundation, you started cultivating the ‘Cloudy Rock Skill’, and this is the problem. Even worse, you chose a cultivation method you shouldn’t have chosen at all. From now on, you need to completely give up on the ‘Water Breaking Skill’ and start cultivating the ‘Cloudy Rock Skill’ with the normal method. Do not purposely absorb Yin Qi.”
After speaking those words, Jiang Chen pointed his finger out with lightning like speed, precisely hitting w.a.n.g Yun’s ‘Origin Pa.s.s’. w.a.n.g Yun felt hot air flowing into his body. Underneath the impact of this hot air, the pain in his ‘Origin Pa.s.s’ immediately disappeared.
When the hot air diminished, w.a.n.g Yun immediately felt clear-minded and energetic. The abnormal feeling in his ‘Origin Pa.s.s’ acupuncture point was completely gone, allowing him to return to his original form.
“Cultivate the ‘Cloudy Rock Skill’ according to what I’ve told you. Tonight, you won’t feel any pain in your ‘Origin Pa.s.s’. With your talent, it’ll take you at most half a year before you’ll be able to break through to the Heavenly Core realm and become an inner circle disciple.”
Jiang Chen said.
w.a.n.g Yun kneeled down on the floor once again and said, “Thank you, senior disciple Jiang for this great kindness! w.a.n.g Yun doesn’t have much I can repay you with, but from now on, w.a.n.g Yun’s life will belong to senior disciple Jiang! Senior disciple Jiang just needs to tell me what to do, and no matter what it is, I, w.a.n.g Yun will definitely accomplish it without even furrowing my brows!”
