War Sovereign Soaring The Heavens - Chapter 3774
Chapter 3774 Yang Qian Ye and Du Po Jun
Half a year before the entrance examinations for the Flying Dragon Sect began, people who stayed far away from the Flying Dragon Sect had already begun to travel to the Flying Dragon Sect. Most of these people were sectless cultivators or disciples of powerful sectless cultivators.
Sectless cultivators enjoyed freedom, but they lacked cultivation resources unlike those in a sect or a clan. Hence, their cultivation path was much more difficult. For this reason, they would seize the chance and find various ways to obtain cultivation resources when the Flying Dragon Sect was recruiting new members.
The emperor-rank Flying Dragon Sect was the ruling force in the eastern region of the Eastern Ridge Mansion. The king-rank forces in that area were like stars while the emperor-rank Flying Dragon Sect was like the moon.
The Flying Dragon Sect’s estate was built where nine mountain ranges met. The name of the place was called Nine Dragons Intersection. There were many divine crystal veins in the area that produced divine crystals similar to the one that Huan’er had given Duan Ling Tian when they were in the Devata Realm.
Divine crystals were very precious in the Realms of Gods. A divine crystal was equivalent to 100 divine rocks. Needless to say, divine crystal veins were rare and were only owned by emperor-rank or supreme-rank forces since those that were weaker would not be able to keep their ownership of the divine crystal veins.
At this moment, an old man and a young man hovered in the sky near the Flying Dragon Sect’s estate. The old man pointed up ahead at the nine mountain ranges that resembled nine crouching dragons before he said, “The Flying Dragon Sect’s estate occupies a vast land. The nine mountain ranges and the point they meet are all protected by the Flying Dragon Sect’s Sect Guarding Formation.”
“So this is the place I’ll be cultivating in the future,” the young man said confidently. His appearance was rather average.
“Qiang’er, with your innate talent and your comprehension skills, it won’t be difficult for you to join the Flying Dragon Sect as an outer disciple. Remember to cultivate diligently so you can become an inner disciple as soon as possible,” the old man said kindly, “The Flying Dragon Sect isn’t only recruiting disciples under the age of 5,000, but they’re also recruiting elders and deacons with no age limit. With my strength, I should be able to join as an outer elder.”
Upon hearing this, the young man said with a sigh, “Grandpa, if you were a little younger, you would’ve been able to join the Flying Dragon Sect as an inner elder.”
“Alas, there’s no way to change the past even if I regret it,” the old man said as he shook his head, “I hope you won’t make the same mistakes I made. In any case, it’s not all bad for me. At least, I had years of freedom, free from the rules and restrictions of a sect or clan.”
The old man did not tell his grandson about the secret he had been keeping. He was not confident about surviving his Heavenly Tribulation that would arrive in 300 years. His only wish now was for his grandson to join a strong force like the Flying Dragon Sect before he died.
A king-grade flying ship sailed in the air.
A young man dressed in fine robes looked at a middle-aged man, who was sitting cross-legged, with a frown on his face and asked, “Father, why are you in such a hurry? There’s still half a year left before the entrance examinations for the Flying Dragon Sect begin, right?”
The middle-aged man replied with a smile, “Chong’er, it’s best to arrive earlier. Who knows if there are benefits to showing up early? Moreover, it’s not like we have anything better to do at home.”
“Benefits? What kind of benefits?” the young man asked.
“The first few exams are group exams. If you arrive earlier, you’ll have the time to get to know the other participants. With that, you’ll be able to select the best groupmates. Although the first few exams are easy for you, with competent groupmates, you’ll be able to conserve your strength for the remaining exams.”
Upon hearing this, the young man’s eyes lit up. “Father, you’re truly wise!”
“So you won’t complain anymore?” the middle-aged man asked teasingly with a smile on his face.
The young man said sheepishly, “I’m not as wise as you are.”
“I only hope you’ll pass the entrance examinations of the Flying Dragon Sect. As for the Latent Dragon Grand Contest, I don’t have any expectations,” the middle-aged man said.
“Father, you underestimate me too much!” the young man said as he furrowed his brows, “I’m the strongest among the younger generation in our clan. Although I might not be able to rank in the top ten of the Latent Dragon Grand Contest, it shouldn’t be a problem for me to rank in the top 100!”
The middle-aged man shook his head and said, “Rank in the top 100? My child, I’d be happy if you can rank in the top 500.”
The middle-aged man was rendered speechless by his son’s ignorance. However, he did not think it was surprising. After all, his son was unaware of the kind of people who would be participating in the Latent Dragon Grand Contest. Many young talents from lord-rank forces would be participating in the Latent Dragon Grand Contest, but he and his son were only from a king-rank force. Not only that, but the king-rank force they belonged to was ranked bottom among the king-rank forces under the Flying Dragon Sect.
The young man said confidently, “Just wait and see, father! I’ll definitely rank in the top
The middle-aged man remained silent. In his eyes, his son was like a frog living at the bottom of a well. Perhaps, the Latent Dragon Grand Contest would be a wake-up call for his son. It would make his son realize how insignificant he was among his peers after leaving the clan.
Near the 10,000 Devils Sect.
Three young men stood at the peak of a mountain. Two of them, who resembled each other greatly, stood facing a black-clad young man.
The black-clad young man was tall and burly; he looked cold and unapproachable. His hair fluttered in the air as he stood at the peak of the mountain. He was none other than Yang Qian Ye, the strongest among the young generation in the 10,000 Devils Sect. He was also the son of Lan Qing, the Sect Leader of the 10,000 Devils Sect. Yang Qian Ye did not share the same surname as Lan Qing because Lan Qing had let his son take his late wife’s surname in remembrance of her sacrifice for him.
At this time, the younger one of the duo looked at Yang Qian Ye and asked, feeling heavy-hearted, “Brother Qian Ye, why are you in such a hurry?”
Yang Qian Ye smiled and looked at the young man who had spoken. He was none other than Du Qian Jun, the second grandson of Supreme Elder Du Zhan. He said, “Qian Jun, you and your brother will be joining the Flying Dragon Sect half a year later. The Flying Dragon Sect isn’t like the 10,000 Devils Sect. You must behave yourself and listen to your brother when you’re there.”
Yang Qian Ye’s gaze was gentle when he looked at Du Qian Jun. After all, he had watched Du Qian Jun growup; he treated Du Qian Jun like his brother. Based on how he had given his only king-grade flying ship to Du Qian Jun as a birthday present, it was clear that he doted on Du Qian Jun a lot.
“I understand, Brother Qian Ye,” Du Qian Jun said. Unlike how arrogant he was when faced with Duan Ling Tian and the others in the Divine Sanctuary, he was very obedient when faced with Yang Qian Ye.
After a moment, Du Qian Jun’s eyes shone with excitement as he said, ‘Brother Qian Ye, why don’t you tell that envoy that you’ll only leave after half a year? That way, you’ll be able to watch my performance during the Latent Dragon Grand Contest! I’ll certainly rank in the top 100!”
Before Yang Qian Ye could respond, the young man next to Du Qian Jun said reproachfully, “Qian Jun, don’t be ridiculous! Do you know what kind of status the envoy has? Do you think he’ll entertain your request? You should wish Brother Qian Ye well instead. Hopefully, he’ll be able to make a name for himself in one of the top five emperor-rank forces in the Eastern Region Mansion. With that, our 10,000 Devils Sect will also become famous!”
The young man who had just spoken was Du Po Jun, Du Qian Jun’s biological brother. He was only second to Yang Qian Ye among the prodigies in the 10,000 Devils Sect. Nonetheless, he was not jealous. After all, they had grown up together and were like brothers.
Yang Qian Ye said with a smile, “When everything has stabilized, I’ll visit you in the Flying Dragon Sect. At that time, I’ll prepare a gift for you that’s even better than the king-grade flying ship.”
Unlike Du Po Jun and Du Qian Jun who were joining the Flying Dragon Sect, Yang Qian Ye was about to join one of the strongest emperor-rank forces in the Eastern Ridge Mansion. In fact, he had been recruited by several top emperor-rank forces. It took him a while before he finally chose a sect to join.
