OMF V5C32 What an Inner Sect Disciple Needs

<< previous chapter || next chapter >>

Qiu Ling didn’t consider that it was getting late already and barged right into the Sect Master’s palace. He even ignored the disciples that were on watch at the gate and made his way into Yuchi Bing Xia’s study.
“Sect Master!”
Yuchi Bing Xia dropped the brush he had been holding and ink smeared across the document he had been working on. With an incredulous gaze, he looked up to find out who was responsible for this mess. Seeing the long-lost disciple of Grandmaster Zhangsun he stopped caring about the mess. “Qiu Ling!” Ah, getting a talent back was so much more important!
“Mn! Sect Master, I brought you a letter from my Master!” Qiu Ling pretended to be a good disciple and handed the letter over before he sat down. His fingers drummed on the armrest of the chair though. Couldn’t this guy hurry up with reading the letter? He wanted to go back to his beloved to bring him the great news!
Yuchi Bing Xia hadn’t even opened the letter by that time. Hearing the fast rhythm of Qiu Ling’s fingers drumming on the wood his heart sank. It couldn’t be that something grave had happened so that time was of the essence, right? How bad could it be now that not only Yu Jin but even Grandmaster Zhangsun’s disciple had come back? Or … could it be that Yu Jin had indeed angered the beautiful god in his house and now he had turned against them? Or killed his disciple?!
He hastily opened the letter and started reading with furrowed brows. Soon enough his expression blanked. This … What was happening here? It didn’t have anything to do with the beautiful god or the future of the sect. It was just asking him to raise the disciple Zhong Jing Yi from an outer to an inner sect disciple!
Yuchi Bing Xia’s brows twitched. He wasn’t as reclusive as Zhangsun Xun Yi. He also knew about the rumors abound in the sect. “Qiu Ling, say, didn’t Zhong Jing Yi and you break up? Why should he still be raised to the status of an inner sect disciple? That was planned to have your status match so you could marry without trouble, wasn’t it?”
Qiu Ling frowned. “Who said we’re not going to marry? We are! He loves me. He just doesn’t realize it yet. And what does this have to do with each other anyway? He did what you said, so make him an inner sect disciple already!”
“Qiu Ling, Zhong Jing Yi has full spirit veins. His aptitude is extremely low. Raising him to the inner sect was something we only proposed since the two of you wanted to marry. Since that isn’t going to happen there is no need to do anything. He doesn’t have the talent to —”
“Shut up! I already told you we will definitely marry! We didn’t break up at all. Jing’er is just … confused. And it’s your disciple’s fault anyway! So don’t try to wriggle your way out of this!”
Yuchi Bing Xia stared at the disciple in front of him. This was probably the rudest he had been treated in the last few thousand years. This person really had guts! Well, he was the Grandmaster’s disciple and a great talent so he could act like this. The Yun Zou Sect really needed such people. Especially in this situation.
Ah, and he was young and in love. Who hadn’t done something stupid when they fell in love for the first time? Speaking of that … What might his Yu Jin be doing right now? Had he already thought of an excuse to get away from the beautiful god? He had to find one fast or it would be too late. The more time he spent with him, the more troublesome this issue would get.
Anyway, this was about that Zhong Jing Yi now. Well, Yu Jin obviously wasn’t completely unrelated although he couldn’t imagine that Zhong Jing Yi’s feelings were reciprocated. Yu Jin wasn’t like that. He might get confused in front of the beautiful god but certainly not in front of some youth. Especially when he knew that said youth was already engaged.
Well, whatever had happened in the secret realm it didn’t matter to Grandmaster Zhangsun’s disciple. It seemed he was intent on having Zhong Jing Yi be made into an inner sect disciple. Yuchi Bing Xia sighed and stood up. This person was one of their foremost talents. If he wanted the youth to become an inner sect disciple, then the youth would become an inner sect disciple.
At the end of the day, it wouldn’t cost the Yun Zou Sect anything. And hadn’t Yu Jin said that the youth had managed to reach the third stage? That was already very good for someone with full spirit veins. Who knew? Maybe he would surprise all of them and manage to advance even further.
“What are you doing?” Qiu Ling eyed the Sect Master warily.
“Didn’t you say you want Zhong Jing Yi to become an inner sect disciple? He’ll need a jade pendant and a new robe, won’t he?”
“Will he?” Qiu Ling blinked. He honestly had no idea how things worked in the Yun Zou Sect even though he had officially been a disciple for over ten years.
Yuchi Bing Xia took a look at the black robe Qiu Ling wore and sighed. One of their foremost talents wasn’t wearing the official robe of their sect and instead looked more like a demonic cultivator. No wonder the Yun Zou Sect had dropped to the status of a second-grade sect. Would they ever manage to rise to the first rank again? “Yes, he will. I have some jade pendants with me but no robes. So let’s get him one.”
Hearing the Sect Master finally agree to fulfill Jing Yi’s wish, Qiu Ling happily followed him to the storage where the robes for the disciples and the jade pendants were stored together with most resources of the sect.
Mn, was there something else his beloved could need? He looked around but he had no idea what those plants were and the other things mostly were some human stuff too. He really didn’t know what to take. Mn, he should have Fu Min or An Bai take a look at this and choose something.
Eh, come to think of it, could it be he had left Fu Min and Fu Heng in the demon realm?
