Rebirth Of The Supreme Celestial Being Chapter 658
Chapter 679 - Reaching an Agreement
Edited by: Bree
Esteemed Fu Ye was also shocked. “What does it mean that the seal was broken?”
“It means that person saw all of the contents recorded by Ancestor Cang Rong! So far, no one has seen all the contents in the scroll that Ancestor recorded!” Daoist Ling Qi’s hand trembled imperceptibly, which was probably caused more by excitement than by anger.
The people in the sect exchanged glances and asked each other, “The scroll was already blank when I touched it. I didn’t see anything. Who touched the scroll before me?”
“I remember Dean Wan was in front of me.”
“Sword Saint Tianshu was before me.”
“I didn’t actually touch this thing. I disdain the Rong family’s stuff.”
“I don’t remember any seal being broken ah .”
In any case, after a circle of questioning, everyone looked at each other in bewilderment. Nobody admitted anything.
Seeing this, Lin Xuanzhi thought a little and suggested, “Since this matter is of great importance and we can’t get to the bottom of it on the spot, it would be better to hand it over to the sect to investigate for the time being. The sect can inform Daoist when there are results.”
Everyone in the Rong family looked hesitant.
In fact, this kind of thing was also difficult to say. If they didn’t strike while the iron was hot today, who can say that Myriad Dao Academy won’t cover up for its own people?
However, Daoist Ling Qi was very generous. He gave a big wave of his hand and said, “Since Huarong Sword Venerable has spoken, this one naturally trusts him. Who broke the Ancestor’s seal is merely secondary — what I’m most concerned about is the so-called truth contained inside the scroll.”
Lin Xuanzhi looked at Daoist Ling Qi and also showed a meaningful smile. “Of course. I also want to know what exactly the scroll contained.”
Daoist Ling Qi nodded. “Then that’s settled.”
A Rong family elder frowned. “First Elder, how can it be settled so easily like this? Won’t it make people feel that my Rong family is weak and easy to bully?”
“What are you even thinking?” Rong Shengxiao couldn’t help feeling amused. “After today, everyone in the Nine Lands will know that my Rong family’s Grandmaster First Elder nearly destroyed Myriad Dao Academy’s library. Who would dare to look down on the Rong family after that? Do you really believe my Rong family is an ant that can be crushed to death with one hand? Besides, not all the Divine Clans currently have Grandmaster experts protecting them. They should worry about their own positions instead.”
Daoist Ling Qi swept a glance over all these Rong family elders. Then he looked towards Sword Saint Tianshu.
Sword Saint Tianshu raised his eyebrow. “What are you looking at me for?”
Daoist Ling Qi commented, To enter the Dao overnight k2014; you really are a good sprout. Its a pity to not cultivate the Rong familys Daoist techniques.
Sword Saint Tianshu gave a cold and thin smile as he stroked the peach wood sword in his hand. If I truly cultivated the Rong familys sword technique, then that would be the real pity. Although I have the Rong familys blood, Ive long ceased to be a member of the Rong family.
Daoist Ling Qi sighed. He seemed to think it was a pity and also seemed to be lamenting.
After a while, Daoist Ling Qi spoke, “From now on, all Rong family disciples can come to Myriad Dao Academy to study. No one in the Rong family is allowed to stop them for any reason.”
“First Elder, we absolutely must not! This Rong Chaoxi killed 13 members of the Rong family’s main branch back then. His crimes are heinous and evil, and he is the Rong family’s sinner!” Fairy Bi Yun’s eyes were full of shock. She immediately called his decision into question, her expression extremely ugly.
However, Daoist Ling Qi’s expression instantly turned cold. He swept a glance over these elders who held great power to sway the Rong family and snorted coldly as he berated them, “Although this one has been in seclusion for many years, do you think that made me so blind and deaf that I don’t know anything? Outsiders might not know why Rong Chaoxi entered the Dao overnight and killed his blood relatives, but don’t tell me that you all don’t know either? Covering up monstrous sins, deceiving all levels of the Rong family, and never repenting: if the Rong family falls into your hands, it will collapse sooner or later!”
Everyone in the Rong family kept quiet out of fear and dared not speak.
Daoist Ling Qi had been in seclusion for many years and didn’t ask about worldly affairs. This time, he left seclusion because of the scroll. He personally learned about what happened in the Rong family all these years. Unexpectedly, his questioning made him aware of the event that happened to Rong Chi and Rong Chaoxi many years ago. That event could practically be called the disgrace of the family.
However, the big mistake had already been made. Although Daoist Ling Qi was extremely furious, he was still helpless to do anything. He could only find a way to make up for the mistake.
Sword Saint Tianshu, however, curled his lips and said plainly, “Even if I cut those 13 bastards into a thousand pieces, my anger still won’t be sated. But I have a request — back then, they buried Rong Chi in the Rong family’s ancestral grave. He probably doesn’t want to stay in the Rong family any longer. I want to move the grave for him.”
Daoist Ling Qi stared at Sword Saint Tianshu. After thinking for a moment, he said, “Ultimately, the Rong family owes you this. This one will agree to your request, but similarly, you cannot kill Rong family disciples as soon as you see them in the future.”
“If they don’t offend me, then I naturally don’t care whether they live or die.” Sword Saint Tianshu’s eyes brightened, and he clenched his fist. “I will never be able to settle my hatred against the Rong family in this lifetime, but I’m still capable of just treating each other like strangers.”
“Okay.” Daoist Ling Qi said, “Find a good day and I’ll personally help you move Rong Chi’s grave.”
Tianshu’s eyes were slightly red, and inside his sleeves, his hands shook uncontrollably.
One side hated the other for killing so many Rong family main branch disciples, almost destroying the Rong family’s entire younger generation. The other side wanted to move Rong Chi’s grave for him, but the Rong family would never agree to it.
Although he entered the Dao overnight, his cultivation wasn’t high enough to fight the entire Rong family. It was impossible for him to take Rong Chi’s corpse away after killing 13 people.
So his wish dragged on until now.
Now, someone in the Rong family finally stepped forth and promised that he could take Rong Chi away. His cherished desire was finally complete.
First Elder’s status in the Rong family was supreme. Since he agreed to allow Rong family disciples to study in Myriad Dao Academy, the ban placed by the Rong family was completely lifted.
This could also be regarded as helping Rong Zhishui so that he wouldn’t be punished even more for violating family rules.
As for the theft of the scroll, Daoist Ling Qi indicated that if he could know what exactly was written in it, then he could let bygones be bygones.
Finally, Daoist Ling Qi said to Lin Xuanzhi, “Since you have already entered the Grandmaster Stage, go to the Grandmaster Holy Alliance to make an oath as soon as possible.”
Lin Xuanzhi said, “I will go in three days.”
Thus, Daoist Ling Qi left majestically with all the Rong family members, just like their grand entrance.
After the Rong family members left, those vines that covered more than half of the sect finally pulled back to their original places and turned back into their original states. However, the stone floor had been pushed apart by the expanding willow roots, which left a lot of debris everywhere. The damage was especially severe around the library.
Esteemed Fu Ye felt a lingering fear. He touched his beard and said, “Grandmasters are indeed extraordinary.”
Although Esteemed Fu Ye wasn’t young and had lived for a thousand years, his cultivation was actually half a step away from Grandmaster Stage, so he wasn’t truly a Grandmaster powerhouse.
Wan Miantang also breathed a sigh of relief. “It’s all thanks to Huarong Sword Immortal this time. Otherwise, the library will be destroyed, and we will be forever condemned by history.”
“He can’t be called ‘Sword Immortal’ anymore.” Sword Saint Tianshu responded, “He should be called ‘Sword Venerable’ now. I really don’t know how Huarong can reach such a profound cultivation level after a short time of two years. It’s truly admirable.”
Lin Xuanzhi explained, “It was two years on the outside but already two hundred years inside the Tomb of Youshan. In these 200 years, I’ve cultivated everyday and didn’t slack off at all.”
“Huarong is too modest.” Esteemed Fu Ye sighed. “I’ve cultivated for a thousand years, but right now, I’m still nothing more than a pseudo-Grandmaster. From beginning to end, I couldn’t make a further breakthrough. Yet you only used 200 years to break through the Major Perfection Stage. Your talent is already monstrous — a genius among the rare geniuses throughout history. We are ashamed. In the future, we will need to rely on Elder Huarong.”
Lin Xuanzhi could naturally afford to be addressed as “Elder”. Within two hours, the entire Nine Lands should know that Myriad Dao Academy now had one more Grandmaster, and this Grandmaster was Lin Huarong, the one known as the Light of Daoism.
After this, Myriad Dao Academy could steadily sit in its position as the number one Daoist sect.
With Shen Congrong’s help, Rong Zhishui trembled as he got up from the ground. He bowed to Lin Xuanzhi. “Many thanks to Elder Huarong for his help. Rong Zhishui will never forget this great kindness and benevolence.”
Lin Xuanzhi replied nonchalantly, “You and Ah Hen are brothers, so I naturally have to help you.”
Rong Zhishui couldn’t help feeling guilty. “I dragged him into the water.”
Lin Xuanzhi smiled faintly without answering.
It wasn’t yet clear who dragged whom into the water. However, during the earlier questioning, Rong Zhishui should’ve suspected that Ah Hen was the one who broke the seal but hid the matter for some reason, refusing to mention it. This mistakenly coincided with Lin Xuanzhi’s intentions.
Rong Zhishui was a smart person. If the Rong family fell into his hands in the future, it would be a great help to Yan Tianhen.
Sword Saint Tianshu frowned. “Huarong, you just promised to explain the contents of the scroll to the Rong family. How can you find the records? The Rong family had pieced together parts of the scroll over thousands of years. If we casually make up a story, I’m afraid Daoist Ling Qi will know we’re fooling him as soon as he hears it.”
Lin Xuanzhi curled his lips and spoke with deep meaning, “Didn’t I say earlier that if we want to know the scroll’s contents, the easiest way is to do business with Reincarnation Palace?”
Sword Saint Tianshu also smiled. “Although we said that, not even Reincarnation Palace can know everything from the ancient era to modern times, right?”
They might have mentioned Reincarnation Palace, but it was just a casual idea. Tianshu really didn’t have much hope for this.
No matter how much foundation Reincarnation Palace had, how could its foundations be deeper than that of the Divine Clans or Myriad Dao Academy? Not even Myriad Dao Academy had a sacred record of the Great Immortal-Demon War similar to the scroll Cang Rong left behind. How could Reincarnation Palace know everything in the world?
However, Lin Xuanzhi smiled.
Reincarnation Palace couldn’t guarantee a 100% completion rate of other matters, but when it came to the scroll, he really did have enough confidence to fool the Rong family. So what if they had already read some of the scroll’s contents? Could they know more than Lin Xuanzhi, someone who had personally experienced the Great Immortal-Demon War?
Thus, Lin Xuanzhi assured, “Just leave this matter to me. Sword Saint Tianshu need not worry about it.”
Sword Saint Tianshu raised his eyebrows. “Then I look forward to it.”
After settling the Rong family’s matter, Lin Xuanzhi didn’t remain any longer and returned to Little Penglai.
The Five Elements Converging Soul Plate had already opened on Little Penglai. The island had become a small world that couldn’t be disturbed from the outside.
It wasn’t like Yan Tianhen was wholly ignorant of outside events. Although Lin Xuanzhi left in a hurry, Yan Tianhen still had several subordinates he could use. Ah Bai and Hu Po followed Lin Xuanzhi outside to see the situation. When they returned, they wildly told him how incredible Lin Xuanzhi was.
“The Rong family actually sent a Grandmaster over!” When Yan Tianhen saw Lin Xuanzhi, he immediately changed his posture of lying on the rock to make himself look more distinguished.
Lin Xuanzhi glanced at the two white tigers who had already returned to their true forms and ran away. “The Rong family places great importance on the scroll. It’s the Rong family’s treasure. If someone lost it, they would naturally be concerned.”
Yan Tianhen scratched his face with a guilty heart.
Lin Xuanzhi looked at Yan Tianhen. “You’re the one who broke the seal on it.”
Yan Tianhen, “…”
How come it wasn’t even a question? You’re so sure ah !
“Not just anyone can break Cang Rong’s seal. I also asked Wan Miantang. The scroll was already blank when he touched it.” Lin Xuanzhi asked lightly, “What did you see inside the seal?”
