Chapter 872: Conflict
Translator: KurazyTolanzuraytor Editor: JayC
The Five Element Sect was situated atop an enormous mountain.
It was an enormous mountain that seemed like an enormous beast that was lying there in hibernation, and the peak of the mountain was flat and spacious.
On this flat and spacious peak of the mountain were another five precipitous peaks that were joined together.
When looked at from afar, the five peaks were like the fingers of a human, both high and low and pierced into the sky.
“Five Finger Mountain!” After he saw the five precipitous mountains before him, a thought like this emerged in Duan Ling Tian’s mind at the first possible moment.
“These five precipitous mountains are the place our Five Element Sect resides… The highest peak at the center it our Five Element Sect’s Gold Peak.” Chen Wei introduced to Duan Ling Tian, Huang Daniu, and Ye Xuan.
“That’s the Water Peak, the Fire Peak, and the lowest is the Earth Peak… That’s our Wood Peak.” After he introduced the third and fourth highest peaks and the lowest peak, Chen Wei pointed towards the second highest peak and spoke to Duan Ling Tian’s group of three.
Duan Ling Tian’s group of three shot their gazes onto Wood Peak when they heard this.
The Wood Peak shot into the layer of clouds, and its entire appearance couldn’t be seen clearly.
When they saw Chen Wei had introduced the Wood Peak to Duan Ling Tian’s group of three, Ke Zheng and Yang Ling flashed out to fly towards the Wood Peak first.
After a short moment, the two of them became small black dots before the eyes of Duan Ling Tian and the others.
“Let’s go over as well.” Chen Wei called out to Duan Ling Tian and the others before chasing after Ke Zheng and Yang Ling.
Duan Ling Tian and the others followed close behind Chen Wei.
Of course, Ye Xuan was brought along by Duan Ling Tian.
Not to mention Ye Xuan hadn’t stepped into the Void Prying Stage now and was incapable of flying, even if Ye Xuan had stepped into the Void Prying Stage and was capable of flying, Duan Ling Tian would still not allow her to fly herself.
The flying speed of a Void Prying Stage martial artist was no different than the speed of a walking ant when compared with them who were at least existences at the fourth level of the Void Interpretation Stage.
Under Chen Wei’s lead, Duan Ling Tian’s group of three descended onto the vast platform at the mountainside of the Wood Peak.
“Chen Wei, arrange a place for them to stay first… I and your Martial Uncle will go see the Peak Master first. We’ll help them register themselves as official disciples tomorrow.” Ke Zheng left with Yang Ling after instructing Chen Wei.
“All of you follow me,” said Chen Wei to Duan Ling Tian’s group of three before he brought them along to stand in midair above a nearby building complex that stretched out continuously into the distance.
The buildings that formed this building complex were mostly pavilions, and there were also a few buildings that were like palaces.
“The pavilions over there are empty, and they’re cleaned regularly… All of you can stay there for now. If you feel it’s uncomfortable, then I’ll give you a different place to stay later on.” Chen Wei led Duan Ling Tian’s group of three to fly towards a row of pavilions ahead, and they arrived in the sky above a pavilion in the blink of an eye.
Meanwhile, Duan Ling Tian noticed there were many young men and women who flew out from some nearby pavilions, and they sized up Duan Ling Tian, Ye Xuan, and Huang Daniu curiously.
Three unfamiliar faces appearing in the Wood Peak obviously caused these Wood Peak disciples to be rather surprised.
Right when Chen Wei led Duan Ling Tian and the others to descend from the sky and intended to enter the pavilion.
Two ear piercing howls of the wind sounded out at the exact same moment, and the howls grew closer and closer.
After a short moment, two figures appeared in the path of Duan Ling Tian and the others, and they blocked their path.
These were two young men around the age of 35. One wore blue clothes, the other wore green clothes, and their ages were similar to Chen Wei. But, from the ridiculing smiles on their faces, they obviously had come will ill intent.
“Luo Chen, what’s the meaning of this?” Chen Wei’s face sank as he looked at the blue clothed young man and shouted out in a low voice.
Obviously, Chen Wei knew this blue clothed young man.
Moreover, from Chen Wei’s extremely unsightly expression and the cold lights that flickered in his eyes, it could be discerned that Chen Wei had great conflict with this blue clothed young man.
For a time, Duan Ling Tian realized that this blue clothed young man had come because of Chen Wei.
“Chen Wei, what’s this attitude of yours? I’ve just come to see what sort of figures the Wood Peak disciples you and Elder Ke have brought back…” Luo Chen who wore blue clothes smiled indifferently, and then his eyes narrowed as he scanned Duan Ling Tian, Ye Xuan, and Huang Daniu from top to bottom.
“HAHAHAHA…” Suddenly, Luo Chen started laughing loudly without reason nor rhyme, and he laughed to the point tears almost dripped out from his eyes in the end.
“What’re you laughing at?!” Chen Wei’s eyes flickered with a cold light.
Duan Ling Tian and the others couldn’t help but frown.
If it wasn’t because he had scruples as this was the Wood Peak and he’d just arrived, Duan Ling Tian would have been unable to restrain himself from slapping Luo Chen since long ago.
“What am I laughing at?” Luo Chen’s laughter stopped when he heard Chen Wei, and then his gaze descended onto Duan Ling Tian and Ye Xuan. “Chen Wei, you better not tell me that these two are Wood Peak disciples that you and Elder Ke found from outside the sect this time.”
“So what if they are?” Chen Wei replied with a cold voice, and the cold lights in his eyes grew colder.
“I remember that our Wood Peak elders received orders to go out and recruit Void Interpretation Stage martial artists below the age of 40, right? You and Elder Ke bringing back two useless pieces of trash seems to have gone against the Peak Master’s orders, right?” A wisp of ridicule appeared on the corners of Luo Chen’s mouth as he laughed.
“Luo Chen, watch your mouth!” Chen Wei’s face darkened, and he shouted out with a grim voice when he heard Luo Chen call Duan Ling Tian and Ye Xuan trash.
The faces of Duan Ling Tian and Ye Xuan sank as well.
We seem to have only met this Luo Chen for the first time, right? Yet he called us trash when we just met him?
Slight coldness suffused Duan Ling Tian’s eyes as he stared coldly and indifferently at Luo Chen, and the Origin Energy in his body surged.
If this Wood Peak disciple dare call him a piece of trash one more time, he would attack without the slightest hesitation!
At this moment, he was filled with a bad impression of this Wood Peak disciple he’d never met before in the past.
When facing Chen Wei’s grim shout, Luo Chen seemed as if he’d not heard it, and he continued ridiculing. “Or perhaps, you and Elder Ke were truly unable to find Void Interpretation Stage young experts below the age of 40 and found these three to fill up the vacancies?” When he spoke up to here, it wasn’t only Luo Chen who started laughing, even the green clothed young man by his side couldn’t help but start laughing.
“Luo Chen, you’ll regret this!” Chen Wei’s expression became even more ominous, and the coldness in his eyes seemed ready to shoot out as he shouted with a deep voice.
The expressions of Duan Ling Tian and Huang Daniu became extremely unsightly as well.
We’re just here to fill up the vacancies?
“Regret?” Luo Chen was first stunned when he heard Chen Wei, and then he couldn’t help but laugh. “Chen Wei, don’t you forget that our strengths are equal… Don’t hope of gaining an advantage against me!”
“Or perhaps you want to rely on them? Forget these two, perhaps they have some natural talent, but they’re utterly useless to our Wood Peak now!” Luo Chen’s gaze of disdain flashed past Duan Ling Tian and Ye Xuan before locking onto Huang Daniu.
“This big guy seems to be not bad… But, how strong could a person that’s a little over thirty be? He’s at most a martial artist at the first level of the Void Interpretation Stage.” Luo Chen’s gaze that shot at Huang Daniu was still filled with disdain.
Huang Daniu’s face darkened and was slightly unable to restrain himself, and the Origin Energy in his body surged as he was about to make a move against Luo Chen.
But when he heard the voice transmission that entered his ear, it caused him to suppress the impulse in his heart, and at the same time, the corners of his mouth curled into a cold smile, a ridiculing cold smile.
“Luo Chen!” Chen Wei took a deep breath as coldness appeared on the corners of his mouth. “You’re continuously deriding these Wood Peak disciples my Master and I brought back, yet I wonder how strong the Wood Peak disciple you and your master brought back is?”
“The Wood Peak disciple my master and I brought back is naturally stronger than these Wood Peak disciples you brought back! See this person by my side? He’s called Hong Xi, he’s 36 years old, and his strength isn’t inferior to the two of us.” Luo Chen spoke as he looked towards the green clothed young man by his side, and his face was covered in a complacent expression.
At this moment, the gaze of the green clothed young man, Hong Xi, flashed past Duan Ling Tian and Huang Daniu before laughing in disdain. “Two pieces of trash. Even if you join forces, I’ll be able to beat each of you down with a single strike!”
As for Ye Xuan, she was completely disregarded by him.
“Luo Chen, he deserves to be a Wood Peak disciple that you and your master brought back… This Hong Xi’s mouth is as foul as yours!” Chen Wei’s gaze that was icy cold like a blade swept past Hong Xi before descending onto Luo Chen in the end.
“You!!” Luo Chen’s face went grim from being ridiculed by Chen Wei, and he was enraged to the point the Origin Energy on his body surged and seemed ready to surge out.
“Luo Chen, this Hong Xi you brought back ought to have not officially registered himself as a disciple of our Wood Peak, right?” Chen Wei’s face suddenly became serious as he asked.
“He hasn’t.” Luo Chen couldn’t help but be stunned when he saw the changes in Chen Wei’s expression, and he answered slightly unconsciously.
But after replying to Chen Wei, he recovered from his shock, and a wisp of a ridiculing smile appeared on his face. “Chen Wei, why did you ask this?”
“You’ll know very soon.” This time, Chen Wei utterly didn’t spare a glance at Luo Chen, and he only glanced deeply at Hong Xi.
Subsequently, he looked at Duan Ling Tian and Huang Daniu. “Duan Ling Tian, Daniu… The peaks of our Five Element Sect have a rule. Any disciple of a peak that hasn’t been registered officially isn’t considered to be a member of the sect, so even if they’re killed, the Sect won’t pursue the matter!”
Chen Wei’s words caused the eyes of Duan Ling Tian and Huang Daniu to be unable to refrain from glowing.
Luo Chen said in disdain when he heard Chen Wei, “Chen Wei, you wouldn’t be thinking that these two pieces of trash would be able to kill Hong Xi if they joined forces, right? It’s simply a humongous joke!”
The smiles on the face of Duan Ling Tian and Huang Daniu froze completely when they heard Luo Chen.
Their eyes that were filled with coldness locked onto Luo Chen at the first possible moment, and it seemed as if they were waiting for a chance to swallow Luo Chen up.
“It a battle between disciples who’ve officially entered the sect, so long as one doesn’t cripple or kill one’s opponent, then the Sect wouldn’t pursue the matter.” Meanwhile, Chen Wei added.
For a time, the frozen smiles on the faces of Duan Ling Tian and Huang Daniu bloomed once more, and it was extremely brilliant.
“Daniu, which one do you want?” asked Duan Ling Tian.
“Me? I want both of them!” Huang Daniu was stunned first, and he spoke out decisively after he returned to his senses.
“Daniu, aren’t you too greedy? Since it’s like this, then we’ll see who’s faster!” As soon as Duan Ling Tian finished speaking, he’d already flashed out.
