OMF V7C105 This Old Friend

“This …” Yuchi Bing Xia’s expression was clearly embarrassed. Receiving the Liu He Alliance’s help was very good but receiving help to this degree … He really didn’t know where to put his face any longer.

Hua Min raised his brows. “Could it be that you’re not sure if it’s worth it? Well, I wasn’t actually involved in the preparation for this and have only heard about it in passing but I think I’ve heard that this person was of the Jian Yi Sect previously. Considering their status whatever that person left behind should be very good.”

“The Jian Yi Sect?” Yuchi Bing Xia looked at him in a daze. That was one of the premier sects, ah!

The Elders on the training grounds also couldn’t keep their thoughts to themselves any longer. “The Jian Yi Sect? Alliance Head Hua, even if that realm was going to open soon, would the Jian Yi Sect even let us in there?” It might not be too difficult for the Liu He Alliance but their sects were something else. They were just first- and second-tier sects after all. They couldn’t compare to these kinds of sects at all. Being able to borrow a bit of the Liu He Alliance’s glory would be great but they didn’t have very high hopes.

Hua Min looked at the Elders as if he didn’t comprehend what they meant. “The realm is going to open anyway. What right does the Jian Yi Sect have to prevent anybody else from going inside? It’s not on their sect grounds, is it?” He huffed as if he really couldn’t imagine this kind of thing and then turned back to Yuchi Bing Xia. “Going over would probably require you to arrange a lot of things. Even if you leave now, I’m not sure you’d be able to get ready that fast since your disciples aren’t prepared to move out unlike the disciples of the other sects. Ah, maybe we should have come a bit sooner. It’s my fault for being shortsighted.”

Yuchi Bing Xia had no idea what to say any longer. While he could only stare at Hua Min in a daze, the Elders of the other sects rapidly thought things through. If there really was a realm opening in the Leyuan region, then that was a rare chance for them and their disciples. Considering that they had brought the best ones with them, they should hurry over as soon as possible. That way, they might be able to be the first to enter the realm and gain the greatest benefits.

Who cared about whether the Yun Zou Sect was already prepared or not? In fact, they’d love it if the Yun Zou Sect’s people would just stay here and deal with whatever other matters they had! It would be great if somebody came over to make some more trouble for them.

The Elders pondered and finally found an excuse one after the other why they definitely had to leave right now. Nobody said it outright but everyone knew that they would go to the Leyuan region straight away and then paint it as a coincidence.

Yuchi Bing Xia stared at all of them in a daze, watching how they rushed off as if they had completely forgotten about why they had come to the Yun Zou Sect in the first place. Well, between finding out just what kind of good thing the Yun Zou Sect had met with and gaining more strength for themselves, they would definitely be more invested in finding opportunities to make their own disciples stronger. After all, knowing what the competitors were up to was important but not as important as increasing their own strength by far.

In the end, the Sect Master could only sigh. He turned to Hua Min, cupped his fists and bowed. “We’ve truly inconvenienced the Liu He Alliance this time.”

Hua Min just waved. “Nothing of the like. It was merely just me saying a few words. It doesn’t matter much.”

Yuchi Bing Xia’s expression became complicated. “How could it be a simple matter? You gave out such valuable information just to drive them off. I’m truly ashamed to have you do something like this for our benefit. I can only hope that you won’t be getting into trouble with the other Alliance Heads.”

Even though the different parts of the Liu He Alliance were rather independent, there were still some matters where even an Alliance Head would have to answer to the others. This kind of thing that concerned opportunities for all of the Alliance’s disciples were certainly something like that. In other words, this Alliance Head Hua might get into a lot of trouble because he had helped them out today. And there was no way for them to make it up to him.

Hua Min looked at him, his gaze subtle. “Sect Master Yuchi, I’m honored that you think I’m such a good person.”

Yuchi Bing Xia could only look at him startled. “I don’t think I understand.”

Hua Min looked to where the Elders and disciples of the other sects had disappeared and shrugged his shoulders. “I’m not that nice. Even though I do want to help the Yun Zou Sect, I wouldn’t make trouble for our Liu He Alliance just for that.”

“But that information …”

Hua Min raised his brows. “That? Ah, I made that up. I guess they will go and wait for a while there and won’t come and bother you anymore. Anyway, if they want to, they can certainly come to the Liu He Alliance and ask about it. In the worst case, I’ll just have remembered it wrong.”

Yuchi Bing Xia looked at him in a daze, not knowing what to say.

On the other hand, Zhangsun Xun Yi sighed. He probably shouldn’t have expected anything else. This person had also been like this when they were young. “Alright, we’ve taken care of this. I’m sure the Sect Master has some other things to do now. The two of us should go and have a talk. I’m sure that’s why you came.”

Hua Min nodded, the small smile that had been hanging on his lips before slowly disappearing. Indeed, there were some things he really wanted to know about. And since he didn’t know just who in the Yun Zou Sect was informed about this, he didn’t dare bring it up even in front of the Sect Master. No, first of all, he should only talk things through with his old friend of his.
