None to Humiliate; None to Smack!
The Elder in crimson robes was called Red Flame Elder, the sixth Elder of the Supreme Amethyst Pill Sect. He had lived for innumerable years, and no one could tell his true age. There were rumors that he had transformed from a ray of Red Flame merging with Heavenly Fire, and his Pill-refining technique was extremely famous in the Upper Realm.
There were many other Elders and Disciples following behind him, but he was clearly the leader of their group. There were both men and women in the group of Elders and Disciples, and all of them had Pill Runes condensed in front of their chests to show their identity.
They were the Inner Sect disciples of the Supreme Amethyst Pill Sect. Their cultivation bases weren’t all that strong, though, and they were in the Great-Transcendent Realm.
Right now, all of them were watching Gu Changge with curiosity. They wondered what the rumored Young Master Gu had come to their Supreme Amethyst Pill Sect for? Also, why was the cultivation base of the woman standing next to him so weak? She was merely in the Transcendent Realm.
It’s just that Gu Changge had an esteemed identity, so they didn’t dare speak out casually in fear of disrespecting him.
[1: bruhs, you are only one Realm above her. The audacity!]
Right now, all of them were busy guessing Gu Changge’s intentions in visiting them.
“Young Master Changge, do come inside our Sect and take a seat. It would be rude of us to keep you standing outside our Sect’s gate.”
Red Flame Elder immediately invited Gu Changge into the Sect. Gu Changge responded to him with a smile and followed behind him. Soon, divine rays of light appeared under everyone’s feet, and they headed towards the depths of the Supreme Amethyst Pill Sect.
[Inside a magnificent palace.]
The scent of Pill Incense lingered in the surroundings, giving the palace an ancient aura. Many gorgeous disciples brought tea and refreshments for Gu Changge, and then stepped aside after handing them to him.
“I wonder what brought Young Master Changge to our Sect today?”
Red Flame Elder took a sip of his tea, and then asked in confusion. The relationship between the Supreme Amethyst Pill Sect and the other major forces was relatively good, and there wasn’t much friction between them, so he didn’t think Gu Changge was here to cause some conflict.
Gu Changge showed a faint smile on his face, and responded to the Elder’s question.
“You don’t need to be so polite, Red Flame Elder. In fact, there’s something I need you to do, and that’s what has brought this Changge to visit your Supreme Amethyst Pill Sect.”
“Oh? Could Young Master Changge be here for this girl next to you?”
Red Flame Elder couldn’t help but guess when he heard his words. His gaze also fell on the woman dressed in blue beside Gu Changge. The lady was beautiful, but her cultivation wasn’t all that good. He wasn’t sure about Lin Qiuhan’s identity, so he just called her ‘girl,’ but judging from her appearance, she must have a close relationship with Gu Changge.
Rumors said that Young Master Gu was an extremely indifferent person who looked down on everyone and everything. They said that it was extremely hard to deal with him, but he realized that the rumors weren’t all that correct.
At least, he didn’t feel that Gu Changge was difficult to talk to after their short chat. He even gave him a warm feeling, as if a spring breeze was caressing him. He couldn’t understand how such rumors could spread about someone with such a temperament.
Red Flame Elder couldn’t help but shake his head.
“I brought Qiuhan from the Lower Realm. When I first met her, her talent for Alchemy moved my heart, and I immediately knew that I had to bring her to the Upper Realm. Now that we are in the Upper Realm, I wish to have her join the Supreme Amethyst Pill Sect, so as to not waste her talent.”
Gu Changge said with a faint smile, and didn’t directly say the words that were in his heart: ‘I saw that your Supreme Amethyst Pill Sect’s been down in the dumps lately, so I decided to send you a good seedling.’
He would be too ruthless if he said that to their face. After all, he still needed them to cultivate Lin Qiuhan for him, so he wouldn’t be able to take advantage of them if he rubbed salt on their wounds like that.
It was because of this that he gave them an implicit hint. If they translated his words, they would understand his meaning: ‘Lin Qiuhan is someone I brought from the Lower Realm, and she has a really good talent for Alchemy. Seeing that your lot doesn’t have any good disciple who can carry the mantle of your Supreme Amethyst Pill Sect, I have decided to grace you with her existence.’
Red Flame Elder had a sharp mind, and he immediately understood his hidden meaning, and couldn’t help but show an embarrassed expression. At the same time, he showed an expression of expectation. After all, Gu Changge was the Young Master of the Ancient Immortal Gu Family.
“Young Master Changge’s heart is truly magnanimous! This old man will like to thank Young Master Changge on behalf of the Supreme Amethyst Pill Sect for your kindness.”
Red Flame Elder said with a laugh, and then began scrutinizing Lin Qiuhan’s talent with great seriousness. Lin Qiuhan couldn’t help but show nervousness as he stared at her with a deep expression, but then she recalled Gu Changge was with her and immediately calmed down a lot.
‘Don’t panic! Young Master Gu is standing right behind you!’
Lin Qiuhan said to herself in her heart.
Gu Changge, on the other hand, showed the same smile, and no change could be seen in his expression. He was clear about Lin Qiuhan’s terrifying talent for Alchemy, and even a Heritage as strong as the Supreme Amethyst Pill Sect would need to lower their heads and accept her as a prodigy.
It’s just that he felt kind of bored since no one jumped out to raise doubts and call him out for bragging. After all, if they were following the normal trope, then a bunch of Inner Sect Disciples of the Supreme Amethyst Pill Sect would jump to their toes and ridicule Lin Qiuhan for her weak cultivation base, and her Lower Realm origins.
It was a pity that she had great Fortune, and didn’t need to go through all that.
It seems that after staying by his side for so long, she was no longer able to live through the trope of a waste slapping the faces of those who looked down on her.
Gu Changge felt that life wasn’t interesting. No one questioned him, no one dared to provoke him, and he had no opportunity to use absolute might to smack someone down either.
Everyone feared him too much.
Right then, Red Flame Elder showed a surprised expression as he couldn’t believe Lin Qiuhan’s talent. He didn’t know how terrifying it was when he hadn’t tested her, but now that he had tested her, he understood well the greatness of her talent. After all, talent wasn’t plastered on someone’s forehead. Even if someone had a high cultivation, they couldn’t easily see through someone’s talent.
To find out the depths of someone’s talent, one had to carefully scrutinize them.
After he carefully checked Lin Qiuhan’s talent, he realized that his little girl actually had a terrifying Pill Intent, no, she was born with Innate Pill Intent!
One had to know that Alchemy Grand Masters could only dream of getting their hands on a mere wisp of Pill Intent, yet this girl was born with Pill Intent.
He was shocked and felt incredulous.
No matter which Alchemy Heritage she went to, she would have a promising future!
“This girl’s talent…”
Red Flame Elder was overjoyed — excited, even — and couldn’t believe his own findings. Immediately, he ordered a disciple behind him to bring some Mystical tools to test Lin Qiuhan’s talent.
“Red Flame Elder, how is Qiuhan’s talent?”
Gu Changge asked with a faint smile. He had already expected him to react like that, but he still needed to pretend.
“This girl’s talent is kind of insane. I never thought someone like her would appear in the Lower Realm, and even be discovered by Young Master Changge.”
Red Flame Elder also showed a smile, and stared at Lin Qiuhan with shining eyes as if he was looking at some unparalleled gem.
“Girl, would you like to take this old man as your Master?”
His sudden words immediately confused Lin Qiuhan, and she couldn’t help but wonder if her talent for Alchemy was really all that great. At the same time, she turned towards Gu Changge for help.
“You can decide this for yourself.”
Gu Changge said with a smile, and left the choice in her hands. It wouldn’t be fun if he had to help her decide even on something like her Master. However, he didn’t like how this shady Red Flame Elder wanted to snatch Lin Qiuhan for himself before anyone else.
“Still, I think you should wait for the other Elders to come here, Qiuhan. The Supreme Amethyst Pill Sect has a lot of Elders, so you should pick the one most suitable for you.”
Gu Changge used the word ‘pick’ without any hesitation.
Red Flame Elder couldn’t help but feel his spirits deflate. After all, he was indeed trying to snatch the treasure before anyone else could see it. Alas! Gu Changge ruined his chance with a few words.
As for Gu Changge using the word ‘pick’? He didn’t feel that there was anything wrong with it.
Now, it wasn’t a matter of whether they (their Sect) were willing to accept Lin Qiuhan as their disciple, but whether she was willing to join their Sect! It won’t be long before the other Elders also arrived, so he felt that he had to get her at any cost possible. After all, he probably won’t have the same opportunity again.
As for the Inner Sect Disciples of the Supreme Amethyst Pill Sect? They were shocked, and couldn’t help but wonder just how terrifying the talent of the woman dressed in blue was.
“Little girl, if you are willing to be this old man’s disciple, this old man guarantees you that you will have whatever pill you desire. When it comes to controlling flames, this old man can guarantee that only a few in the Upper Realm are better than this old man!”
Red Flame Elder was prepared to entice Lin Qiuhan at any cost. He wanted to lay the foundation for Lin Qiuhan to choose him as her Master before the others arrived on the scene.
Right then, a group of old and decrepit Elders of the Supreme Amethyst Pill Sect appeared outside the hall in which Gu Changge and the others were sitting. All of these Elders were ancient fossils with terrifying connections, immeasurable resources, and great fame for their skills in Alchemy in the Upper Realm.
“This old man heard that Young Master Changge brought a great seedling for our Sect!”
“Young Master Changge sure has a magnanimous heart. Our Supreme Amethyst Pill Sect is extremely grateful for your favor!”
All of the Elders had terrifying auras. They greeted Gu Changge in haste, and then immediately turned their gazes towards Lin Qiuhan, and stared at her like a bunch of hungry wolves staring at a fat lamb.
They had already heard the details from their informants on the way to this place.
“She has more than one strand of Innate Pill Intent…no, wait…she has so many strands of Pill Intent! How could this be possible?”
“This girl wouldn’t have transformed from some Ancient Divine Pill, right?”
“A talent like hers hasn’t appeared in millions of years! It seems that we can finally raise our heads when the various Sects compete.”
The people in the palace couldn’t help but take in deep breaths. They quickly prepared the Mystical tool used to test talent, and brought it before Lin Qiuhan.
A splendid brilliance, accompanied by a light tremor, bloomed in the center of the palace, and various dazzling scenes emerged and illuminated every corner of the palace. Many of the disciples couldn’t help but close their eyes to avoid going blind from the bright light.
“The results of the test are as expected; this girl has the most suitable physique for Alchemy! Give her to this old man, and this old man guarantees that she will be a renowned Alchemy Grandmaster within twenty years!”
“It’s better if you leave this little girl to this old lady! What if you bunch of old men taught her something wrong and ruined her future? Little girl, you should follow me. I guarantee that you will be a renowned Alchemy Grandmaster admired by myriads of people in just eighteen years!”
“This old man can do that in fifteen years!”
“Fifteen years? Old man, I only need thirteen years and three months! Hehe, little girl, your talent is great, so you should choose this old man as your Master. You will be the next Peak Master of this old man’s Heavenly Pillar Peak, and even becoming the next Sect Mistress won’t be impossible!”
All the disciples of the Supreme Amethyst Pill Sect were shocked and scared when they watched their high and mighty Elders fight over a disciple like old women fighting over cabbage in a village’s market. They couldn’t believe that the Elders they couldn’t even gaze upon on normal days would be fighting among themselves just to take in a disciple!
Lin Qiuhan blinked and looked towards Gu Changge for help; she had never encountered so many people with such oppressive auras in one place, so she couldn’t help but feel lightheaded.
“You can choose on your own.”
Gu Changge said in response.
“No, I will do what Young Master says!”
Lin Qiuhan pursed her lips and threw the ball back to Gu Changge.
‘Why isn’t your brain this sharp on regular days?’
Gu Changge wanted to give her a smack on the back of her head.
“This little girl might as well be my disciple. I only need ten years to turn her into an Alchemy Grandmaster.”
Right then, a gentle voice came from outside the palace, and a gorgeous lady with a smile on her face walked in. Her figure was ethereal, and it appeared as if she had descended from another world. No one could estimate the depths of her might.
All the disciples and Elders in the palace greeted her with extreme courtesy.
As for her words? They were obviously directed towards Gu Changge.
