Chapter 69 - My Young Master Wants To Meet You, Bai Xiaochun
A month later, the outer sect disciples of Purple Cauldron Mountain were going crazy. During the past month, Bai Xiaochun’s presence had taught them the horrifying meaning of one living like a Senior Uncle as a duty.
They discovered that wherever you are, so long as it is on Purple Cauldron Mountain, you are not exempt from chancing upon a small swaggering youth failing to mask the glee on his face. And when you do, the youth would cough dryly upon seeing you and even give you an unwanted self-introduction if you haven’t met...
’Senior Uncle Bai’, these three words made their jaws hurt from the uncountable times they had uttered them. However, they didn’t have much of a choice... he was the Sect Head’s Junior Brother, after all. He was senior to all sect disciples, and if a disciple dared disrespect him, they would be violating of the sect rules.
Only after managing to find Zhang Fatso One did the tormented people find peace after Bai Xiaochun’s old friend persuaded him to leave Purple Cauldron Mountain alone. And so Bai Xiaochun went to… Green Peak Mountain.
A month in Green Peak Mountain drove the outer sect disciples there to insanity as well.
Chen Fei’s group of three, in particular, were tormented. Bai Xiaochun’s stay in Green Peak Mountain yielded daily visits to their homes, and nothing short of saying ‘Senior Uncle Bai’ a hundred times before the trio could send him off.
It was to the point where Bai Xiaochun would find even the slightest fault and had the look that said as long as the Chen Fei trio were in the least bit disrespectful, he would report them to the Law Enforcement Agency, making the Chen Fei trio tremble in fear. They were careful the whole day until finally it seemed as though they were wailing and begging as they named Qian Dajin as the instigator of everything and had been tormented until they lost their human form. Only then did Bai Xiaochun let them go and sighed as he left the Green Peak Mountain. He also felt some remorse in what he did.
”Right, the outer sect disciples know who I am now… All that’s left are the inner sect ones. That Qian Dajin, does he really think I’ve forgotten about him?” Bai Xiaochun pondered for a moment before nodding deeply. He felt his current life was quite enjoyable and quickly went off to search for the inner sect disciples.
After that, although his figure still appeared from time time on the three mountains, he mostly dwelled where the inner sect disciples were. With his identity, Bai Xiaochun could enter just about anywhere.
Very quickly Bai Xiaochun got bored. The inner sect disciples were in their cave dwellings, cultivating behind closed doors. He decided to camp outside the cave dwellings for a couple months, waiting for any of them to come out, especially Qian Dajin. Despite Bai Xiaochun standing in front of his cave dwelling for a whole month, Qian Dajin was too afraid to exit and therefore never met with Bai Xiaochun. No matter how much Bai Xiaochun shouted, he never responded.
”I refuse to believe this!” Bai Xiaochun stood before Qian Dajin’s door, attempting to use a formation array to break in. Inner sect disciples’ cave dwellings had very strong protections. Unable to do it alone, he was forced forced to gather a few other disciples for the job.
At this moment, two figures sped to them from the distance, both inner sect disciples, one tall and one short. Without greeting Bai Xiaochun, they calmly said.
”Senior Uncle Bai, regarding Qian Dajin, could you give our Young Master face and drop this matter?”
”Our Young Master holds the title of Shangguan Tianyou” The tall disciple emphasized.
(ED: He was originally introduced back at ch.35 as Guan Tianyou, one of the three outstanding geniuses of the South Bank, but his name is actually Shangguan Tianyou.)
Shangguan Tianyou, that was the name of the head of the only three Heaven’s Chosen among the entire three mountains on the South Bank!
This potential of his could be said to be extremely rare, one that could only be seen in a thousand years. Even if one was an outer sect disciple, there was no guarantee that they would ever become a Foundation Establishment cultivator. That was why the sect did not have that many Elders. However, this Shangguan Tianyou was different from all the others. The South Bank even considered him as their hope to overpower the North Bank. As such, no effort was spared to develop him.
The followers of the Shangguan Tianyou on the Green Peak Mountain were numerous.
Bai Xiaochun remained unperturbed. If it was in the past, he would be afraid, but he would be afraid of death. But that didn’t mean he was timid, so long as death wasn’t an option, his courage knew no bounds.
With his current identity, hardly anything could cause his death. As such, he looked at the duo with disdain and smiled.
”Seeing my esteemed self, the two of you did not even pay your respects. Who gave you the confidence to be so arrogant to even disrespect your seniors? Was it that Shangguan Tianyou?” Bai Xiaochun waved his sleeve as he faintly spoke.
His words caused the two’s expressions to change, the tall disciple looked at him sharply.
”Senior Uncle Bai, be mindful of your words.”
Just as the words left his mouth, before he could even continue, Bai Xiaochun had already disappeared. The tall disciple felt the wind blow as Bai Xiaochun appeared right in front of him.
His speed was so fast, the duo could not even see him. Before they could even react Bai Xiaochun raised his right hand and with a terrifying force it ripped through the air before it landed on the tall disciple’s face.
The disciple’s robes suddenly glowed, exuding a protective layer. That was one of the magical treasures given to the inner sect disciples. But just as the light screen appeared, Bai Xiaochun’s hand slammed on it and broke it apart. It completely failed to stop his palm that carried an enormous force as it landed like a boulder.
Bang. Stars appeared in the tall disciple’s vision as a droning sound appeared in his mind. Blood sprayed out as his body flew dozens of zhang away like a kite, not even a scream left his mouth as he fainted from the pain straightaway.
(ED note: one zhang is approximately 3.58 meters, or 3.64 yards.)
The scene happened too suddenly, stunning the shorter disciple, his mind was abuzz. He instinctively backed away, looking back and forth between his companion and Bai Xiaochun who had slapped him unconscious. He took a deep breath and swallowed loudly.
”You… You…” His body was trembling and his mind was muddled as he pointed at Bai Xiaochun. He never expected the strength of Bai Xiaochun to actually be so terrifying.
Currently, Bai Xiaochun had yet to achieve the eight level of Qi Condensation…
”Senior, are you sure it is appropriate for you, as an Inner Sect Disciple, to point at me in such a manner?” Bai Xiaochun said as he turned to the short disciple and walked toward him.
Screaming, the disciple hastily backed away. Not waiting for him to go too far, the wind whistled as Bai Xiaochun approached, a slap aimed at the disciple’s face.
At that moment, a cold voice suddenly resounded from the foot of the mountain .
”Stay your hand!” As the voice fell, a silhouette quickly appeared.
Bai Xiaochun did not bat an eye, instead he applied even more strength to his palm, sending teeth and blood flying out of the short disciple’s mouth. The disciple’s neck was almost broken as he was flung to the side, unconscious.
Once he was done, Bai Xiaochun flourished his small hand and raised his head to look at the rapidly approaching person from the foot of the mountain. He was a middle-aged man who was actually at the ninth level of Qi Condensation, the same as Chen Heng.
He stared at Bai Xiaochun and started laughing angrily.
”Did you not hear me, damn it, Bai Xiaochun, you…!”
”Pardon me, nephew, do you fancy a slap to the face as well?” Bai Xiaochun smiled, lifting his chin up high. Bai Xiaochun immediately noticed that just like the two before, this man did not have the slightest respect for him, instead contempt permeated down to their very bones as if they were superior to him! He despised such inner sect disciples.
Once his words were spoken, the middle-aged man’s expression flickered and his voice stopped abruptly. The power of Bai Xiaochun’s body caused fear in him. He was also flustered ,and now that he thought back about it, he immediately took a deep breath. Added on with Bai Xiaochun’s status, even the Law Enforcement Agency could not say anything about all of Bai Xiaochun’s previous actions.
”Bai Xiaochun, my Young Master has invited you to pay your respects.” The middle aged man glared at Bai Xiaochun after taking a deep breath, suppressing his anger as he said that he was here on behalf of the Heaven's Chosen, to deliver a message.
In his opinion, however, he felt that his master had done something unnecessary. Bai Xiaochun was merely a disciple that had made a contribution by a fluke, a clown-like figure who had killed a few weak clansmen from a cultivator clan. If it wasn’t for his good luck, he couldn’t have possibly been given such publicity in the Sect. It was really not worth it for a Young Master who was definitely going to be successful and climb up the promotional ladder, even having a shred of hope to become a Core Formation in the future, to send a messenger to relay a message.
Even asking Bai Xiaochun to pay his respects to his master was demeaning in this middle-aged man’s eyes.,
”An outer sect disciple, so what if he is a Heaven's Chosen, why should I be paying my respects to him? He should be the one coming to pay his respects to me!” Bai Xiaochun could clearly detect that Young Master’s pride. Based on his Bai Xiaochun’sstatus, if the other party did not personally come, that is all. If the other party did not personally come and deliver the message, forget it. He had actually asked for Bai Xiaochun to go and pay his respects to him.
He flourished his sleeve and a huge gust of wind blew. The middle-aged man’s eyes immediately burned with anger.
”Bai Xiaochun, my Young Master granting you an audience is already giving you a lot of face, do you have any idea how many people don’t even have the chance to, you…” His face changed as he was just about to leap back. But he was still a second too late, Bai Xiaochun appeared right in front of him, with his palm crashing down.
”How dare you!” The man was at the ninth level of Qi Condensation, and he released its full power. Flashing a hand seal, wind blades instantly appeared, shielding his body. With a shocking roar, those wind blades made contact with Bai Xiaochun’s palm and instantly collapsed, failing to stop him.
Crushing all obstacles in its way, Bai Xiaochun’s palm slammed on the man’s face.
Bang. A scream followed as the man’s body was flung dozens of zhang away before he regained his footing.
”You’re even below Chen Heng, no wonder you bow to someone else, get lost!” Bai Xiaochun swung his sleeve to the side triumphantly.
The man stared at Bai Xiaochun aghast, his body trembling. His left cheek was swollen, blood and teeth spilling out as he backed away.
Bai Xiaochun waited until his opponent left before turning back to Qian Dajin’s cave dwelling, narrowing his eyes. He was scared of dying, so he dealt vindictively with anyone who targeted him.
This Qian Dajin, Shangguan Tianyou or not, Bai Xiaochun wasn’t just going to let him off like this. These days, Bai Xiachun seemed to randomly spent in nonsense and entertainment in the inner sect area, but in fact, he had been doing research on Qian Dajin.
”With you hiding inside, do you think I have no way of reaching you?” Bai Xiaochun snorted coldly, leaving the scene. Using his current status, not long after, a jade slip for an assignment flew out of the Law Enforcement Agency toward Qian Dajin’s cave dwelling, appearing right in front of him.
Just like he had done before, Bai Xiaochun had him conscripted on a dangerous mission. Qian Dajin remained bitter for a long time. He had no choice but to leave his hideout to go on a mission.
However, he had underestimated Bai Xiaochun’s vengefulness. Bai Xiaochun had arranged dozens of missions of this kind for Qian Dajin. He had even personally and secretly contacted Hou Yunfei. The Hou Clan was a cultivator clan and had a Foundation Establishment Ancestor. As such, they had deep inside information. On Bai Xiaochun’s end, he regarded this matter extremely highly, it was natural for Bai Xiaochun to work with Hou Yunfei and Hou Xiaomei.
They would not fail to make Qian Dajin go on missions again and again until an unexpected accident occurs.
The Law Enforcement Agency was not unaware of what Qian Dajin had done. At that time, they did not want the matter to see the light, so it was not openly investigated despite being recorded.
But now that Bai Xiaochun had appeared and happy to take care of it, the agency didn’t resist in the slightest and even felt they owe him for doing all the work himself. In the inner circles of the agency, Qian Dajin was already considered dead.
