OMF V3C97 A Meeting with the Elders

<< previous chapter || next chapter >>

At the same time, Sect Master Yuchi Bing Xia was holding a meeting with the Yun Zou Sect’s Elders. Even Grandmaster Zhangsun was present which showed how important this meeting was.
“My disciple Yu Jin sent word over that there is a spiritual disturbance in the Leyuan region. It seems like a special dimension is about to open there that hasn’t been noticed by anyone else yet.”
The Elders went into an uproar at once.
“A special dimension? How could that be? Don’t they always open after a set amount of time? Why would nobody know about this?”
Yuchi Bing Xia didn’t answer and turned to Grandmaster Zhangsun instead. “Yu Jin has gone to the Hei Dian Sect to see what Zhong Jing Yi and your disciple have found out. Should I send him a message to bring those two over to the Leyuan region as well?”
Zhangsun Xun Yi nodded. His disciple wouldn’t need such an opportunity but Zhong Jing Yi would. In that case, Qiu Ling would certainly want to go there as well.
Yuchi Bing Xia nodded and took out a paper crane. He wrote down his message and sent it to his disciple before turning to address the Elder that had spoken before. “I know it seems strange but I trust in Yu Jin’s judgment. Maybe this special dimension has never before opened. In any case, we’re lucky to get such an opportunity.”
“Then what does Sect Master Yuchi propose we should do?” asked another Elder.
“In my opinion, we should set out right now but limit the number of people we take with us so as to not alarm anyone else. I think one or two disciples for each one of us should be alright.”
One of the Elders nodded. “That sounds good to me. Do we know if there are any restrictions on entering the special dimension?”
Yuchi Bing Xia shook his head. “No. When Yu Jin went there the special dimension hadn’t yet appeared. But to make sure that we don’t take the wrong people I would propose to take disciples of the second and third stage. They should definitely be eligible to enter.” He paused for a moment before sighing. “I don’t think that I need to remind you that this might very well be an opportunity to help our sect attain its former glory again. All of you should choose wisely which disciples will profit the most from this opportunity but are also able to bring benefits for the sect. Go now and have the disciples gather here.”
The Elders nodded and stood up. They bowed to Yuchi Bing Xia before all hurrying back to their own peaks to inform their disciples.
Yuchi Bing Xia turned to Zhangsun Xun Yi and bowed himself. “Grandmaster, may I trouble you to bring the disciples over? I dare not leave the sect myself and we shouldn’t send too many of the Elders.”
“Of course. This is for the benefit of the Yun Zou Sect. Furthermore, it’s beneficial to my own disciple as well. I should get involved.”
“Mn. I also fear that something may happen. Yu Jin couldn’t provide much information considering that the special dimension was only starting to appear. We don’t know if there are restrictions or who was the previous Master of the dimension. We know nothing. It really worries me. So … I hope the disciples will be safe with you. If we were to lose them …” He shook his head. He didn’t even want to think about it.
“I’m sure nothing will happen. I don’t know much about your disciple but when I saw him he struck me as someone reliable.”
“Mn. He is.” Yuchi Bing Xia hesitated for a moment. “In fact … I’m considering to pass my position to Yu Jin later on. When you lead the disciples over there have a look at him and tell me what you think.”
“Haven’t you already decided?”
The Sect Master smiled. “Considering my own opinion I have. It’s just that Yu Jin … He didn’t seem all that thrilled at having the opportunity.”
“That’s a little strange, isn’t it?”
Yuchi Bing Xia nodded. “It is. But I never doubted him. He’s a good child. And if he were a spy from another sect, then he definitely would have jumped at just a whisper of inheriting my position.”
“Mn. That’s true. Then maybe something else is bothering him?”
“I think so, too. It’s just that … he doesn’t like to talk. Well, he does if you ask him something but he wouldn’t say anything on his own accord. Maybe that, too …”
“I’ll take a look and tell you what I think. But everything else will depend on you. You’re his Master. If there is anything to talk about, then you should be the one he divulges everything to.”
“Yes. I should be. Maybe I should just ask straightforwardly. I’m just … a little afraid. He’s quite perceptive. If there is anything that bothers him to this degree … I just can’t fathom what it might be.”
“Everything will be revealed in due time. You shouldn’t worry too much about it. Maybe what bothers him will resolve itself soon enough.”
“Mn. I hope so.”
“The special dimension is at least an opportunity for that.” Zhangsun Xun Yi stood up and nodded at the Sect Master. “There is something I should do before leading the disciples over.”
Yuchi Bing Xia lifted his brows. “You …”
“That person in the back of the mountain.” Zhangsun Xun Yi turned around and left the peak without waiting for an answer. These words alone would be enough to let the Sect Master understand.
Indeed. Yuchi Bing Xia didn’t question any longer. He had never seen that person with his own eyes but his Master had told him about him back then. Without him, the Yun Zou Sect would probably be in an even worse situation right now. Naturally, the Grandmaster should tell him if he left the sect for an indefinite amount of time.
Oh. If the Grandmaster left, then … should he go over there to see if that person needed anything? He straightened up just thinking of that. Ah, he’d just ask the Grandmaster when he returned. Until then he should better consider whom to send besides Yu Jin. After all, he could send two people, too.
