“Even though we have become certain that we want you to lead our people to Hero’s Mountain Villa, you will still participate in the competition in Murong Clan. Two days later, we will be certain of what title we should give you.”
The Murong Clan Master did not seem to have noticed Happy’s complicated expression of surprise and delight. He said, “Eighteen Dragon Subduing Palm might be an ingenious martial art, but do not forget that you are Murong Clan’s disciple. We need disciples like you to inherit Shifting Stars.”
“Good. Since you understand, you may leave now, but do not go far. Two days later, during noon, we will organize our competition in the mansion. On the third day, the disciples who received the top ten ranks in Murong Clan will be led by Yu’er to Hero’s Mountain Villa to bring glory to Murong Clan!” the Murong Clan Master said.
“I will definitely not let down your hopes on me.” Once Happy answered, he left the side hall under Uncle Rong’s lead.
Uncle Rong led Happy around the front yard before he had Happy return on his own to the backyard and told him that the lady was waiting for him there.
Happy was stunned.
When he passed by the area with the rabbits, he could not help but remember the small figure, along with the crispy voice asking the small animals why they refused to eat the carrots.
The area around the rabbit pen was empty.
Happy cast a glance at his Universe Bag and brought out a carrot. He habitually crouched down to extend a carrot into the pen. When he saw a colony of rabbits coming to nibble at the carrot, he could not help but smile. He brought out all the carrots he had and placed them inside one after another to stop the rabbits from fighting over them.
“Happy.” The Murong Clan Lady’s voice came from behind him, and it snapped him out of his slight daze.
Happy quickly stood up. “My lady.”
The Murong Clan Lady’s clear gaze swept past Happy’s face. “We’ve recently taken in a few disciples, but they can’t take good care of the rabbits, and they always get sick. They aren’t as meticulous as you are.”
“Give them some time, and they will definitely be even more outstanding than I am.” Happy smiled. Quite a number of Mu Clan’s members were Murong Clan disciples, after all. “My lady, do you have anything to ask of me?”
“I do. The leader of the young disciples has already been decided. It is you, and I, too, believe that you will use your abilities to prove that you are deserving of this title!
“But I have to give you a reminder. When the Hero’s Meeting begins, the eight aristocratic families who have always borne a grudge against the Murong Clan will definitely take action. However, the master does not wish for you to act on impulse. It would be good if you could act within limits when you attack. Do not readily kill them.”
The Murong Clan Lady had a dejected look on her face.
“Sky Demon Sect has been resurrected, and the disciples of the evil cult all possess extraordinary strength. The five elders of Sky Demon Sect have astonishing strength as well. Their abilities do not lose to those of the sect leaders of the six sects.
“Their Dharma Protector Jin Yin has unfathomable strength, and there are few in the world of martial artists who are his opponent. Their sect master is rumored to be a legendary person in Myth Realm. His strength even surpasses that of Wudang Sect’s Zhang Sanfeng.
“The people from the other sects feel as if they are surrounded by danger, which is why this martial arts tournament is incredibly important. It concerns the survival of all martial artists. If you act on impulse, you will bring damage to the strength of our martial artists, and no sect wishes for a person with a petty heart to be their leader.”
When Happy heard this, he understood what she meant.
By the looks of it, unnecessary deaths would not appear during the martial arts tournament.
However, he wondered whether the Sky Demon Sect was related to the Sky Demon Sect Yuan Mie said was brutally destroyed more than thirty years ago. If it was, then it was not difficult to understand that Sky Demon Sect wanted to take revenge on the martial artists who walked down the righteous path.
Happy did not think deeply about it though
After all, the martial arts tournament was a unique activity the official developers launched, and any other main quest might only be launched during it. If he thought about it right now, it would be too early.
It would be better for him to spend some time to think about how he should handle Zhou Zhiruo and Song Qingshu so that he could get the last page for Nine Yang Divine Skill.
Besides, he might run into One Emperor beforehand during the martial arts tournament. He might also have to fight for a title during the martial arts tournament.
The Murong Clan Lady continued to speak. “Also, remember that Eighteen Dragon Subduing Palm is the ultimate technique belonging to the sect master of Beggar’s Sect. During the tournament, the elders of Beggar’s Sect will definitely come to you. At that time, you might even end up angering Beggar’s Sect and forming a grudge with them.
“The master asked me to tell you to be in control of the situation. Try not to reveal the technique in front of others as much as you can, and if possible, not to use Eighteen Dragon Subduing Palm during the tournament at all.”
Happy was stunned speechless. The Murong Clan Lady’s advice shocked him.
It was also at that moment that he came to a swift realization why Zhou Zhiruo had given up on the two ultimate techniques from Beggar’s Sect without hesitation when they obtained Book of Wumu. It was because it was a sect ultimate technique, and she did not want to bring great trouble on herself.
Happy had been fortunate enough to get two supreme-grade martial arts and two ultimate techniques from Beggar’s Sect, but there was also hidden dangers within it. If he learned two ultimate techniques, he had to pay the price for them. The whole Beggar’s Sect might treat him as a thorn on their side.
When Happy thought of that, he could not help but laugh wanly.
“Thank you for your reminder, my lady, I will be careful.”
He also ran a simulation in his head and came to a decision. During the tournament, unless he absolutely had no choice, he would not readily use Eighteen Dragon Subduing Palm. After all, once he truly came to understand Eighteen Dragon Subduing Palm, its might had increased drastically, and even Zhou Yu was not his opponent. He would not have a problem in getting to the top ten.
“That is good. You can leave now. Since you have some time, why don’t you take up some tasks from Uncle Rong? I heard that Well Lane is not very peaceful lately. You can go take a look.”
The Murong Clan Lady sent him away after that.
Happy obeyed her and went to search for Uncle Rong, and as expected, he gave Happy a quest.
It was a rather inconspicuous quest, and the reward was rather normal. However, Happy practically never returned to Murong Mansion and did not take up any quests from his master’s clan. On top of that, he had performed many boring quests from Wudang Sect, so he took it with the thought of having some fun.
Happy ran into an excited Eleventh Crane when he reached the entrance of Murong Mansion. Eleventh Crane walked ahead of him with a face flushed red with excitement. There was a bow shining with the dazzling light symbolic of a weapon at fourth echelon in his hands, and it was one he had never seen before.
Its limbs were full of power, and its bowstring was as cold as ice. It released an intimidating glare.
Whirlwind Young Li, filled with admiration and harmless envy, was following after Elevent Crane, and a group of Murong Clan disciples who were there to watch the fun were after him.
“This is the one you chose?” Happy quirked his eyebrows slightly, and an admiring look appeared in his eyes.
He remembered that Eleventh Crane’s bow skills were pretty good, and if he chose a fourth-echelon bow Heartless Iron had created, he would be able to maximize his advantage of long-distance attacks. The damage increased by a fourth-echelon bow and a bow technique with a high realm could threaten a normal Inaction Realm martial artist.
“With this, you will have no problem with getting into the top ten, Big Brother Crane. You will definitely head to Hero’s Mountain Villa and join the martial arts tournament. We have one spot less now.”
“… I already told you that I’d treat you.”
“It won’t be enough with just one meal. Happy, what do you say?”
When he saw the group walk toward him, Happy could not help but put on an understanding smile.
Eleventh Crane’s bow technique had always been very outstanding. If he did not neglect his lightness skill, with a good bow in hand, he would definitely become one of the people who would head to the Hero’s Meeting.
There were indeed a lot of talented people from Murong Clan.
