I Just Won’t Play By The Book - Chapter 469
Chapter 469: Seeing the Sun Again
Being sandwiched between two Profound Sages, Jiang Beiran felt like his heart was about to explode.
Turning around, Jiang Beiran recognized the owner of the other voice.
‘The mysterious old man that Lin Shiyun mentioned…’
Although Lin Shiyun was knowledgeable, she didn’t recognize all the Profound
Sages who came this time.
For example, this old man who had suddenly appeared was one of them.
Without waiting for Jiang Beiran to bow, Venerable Wu Xiang smiled and said,””Who are you calling an old ghost?”
Jiang Beiran had goosebumps all over his body when he heard that. The reason for his goosebumps was not the content of the words, but the voice.
This voice was like a song, tender and alluring. Just listening to it made one imagine the image of a peerless beauty.
However, this voice didn’t belong to Lin Yuyan or Lin Shiyun. It belonged to Venerable Wu Xiang.
At this moment, Venerable Wu Xiang was no longer as old as before. With a shake of his body, he actually became a beauty with snow-white skin, a graceful figure, and an otherworldly beauty.
Just by standing there, she was like an orchid in the valley, as clear as a daffodil in the water, with a faint misty charm.
Amidst this stunning beauty, there was also a 30% dignity, 30% playfulness, and 40% otherworldly. It was as if she was not a mortal woman. Looking at her up close, there was a charm that seeped out from her bones. She was born in the mortal world and did not eat fireworks. Her bearing was noble and elegant, making people not dare to look directly at her.
‘Looking up at the green mountains, looking back at the distant evening clouds.’
Jiang Beiran couldn’t help but recite a poem in his heart. He had seen so many beautiful women since he came to this world, but in terms of temperament, none of them could compare to the one before him.
She was like a fairy who had fallen into the mortal world.
She was no longer wearing the Taoist attire she had worn before. Instead, she had changed into a white muslin quilt, giving off a clear and transparent feeling. There was a light purple muslin belt on her shoulders, which fluttered without any wind. She looked exactly like the fairy image that Jiang Beiran had imagined.
‘Good fellow…Was this the reason why she was called Venerable Wu Xiang? What about the living?
If it weren’t for the fact that there were only five people in the cave and that he had not seen her during the long battle, Jiang Beiran would have found it hard to believe that the white-haired old man had suddenly turned into a fairy.
The other mysterious old man did not show any surprise after seeing Venerable Wu Xiang’s transformation. He only smiled and said, “How do you plan to deal with these juniors?”
“Why? Do you want to butt in?” Venerable Wu Xiang asked.
“There’s no such thing as first come, first served. Why am I the one who has to interfere?”
“I’m too lazy to argue with you.” Waving his hand, Venerable Wu Xiang first glanced at Jiang Beiran, then looked around and said, “”To be able to hide under our noses for so long, you’re indeed a young hero. How old are you?”
“Reporting to Senior, Junior is twenty-one years old.”
“Twenty-one?” Venerable Wu Xiang and the mysterious old man were stunned at the same time.
Then, Venerable Wu Xiang suddenly appeared in front of Jiang Beiran like a
ghost and pressed his hand on his chest.
“It’s really 21!”
Venerable Wu Xiang was one of the top powerhouses in this mainland. There were countless geniuses and talents in the sect, but it was her first time seeing someone like Jiang Beiran.
He was only twenty-one years old, yet he was able to set up these three great formations, and each of them was a top-notch formation.
Otherwise, he wouldn’t have been able to hide under their noses for so long.
The other thing was…
He actually survived that move.’
The move that Venerable Wu Xiang had just used was called the Hunyuan Sacred Roar. It was a move that she had just comprehended, so she tried to use it.
As an attempt, some loss of control was naturally inevitable. Although she had tried her best to prevent the explosion of the Mixed Element Pearl from affecting the spirit vein, it was a pity that things did not go according to her wishes.
Jiang Beiran must have been within the blast radius. The fact that he had survived was enough to prove how capable he was.
After sizing up Jiang Beiran, Venerable Wu Xiang looked around again, and the surprise on his face grew even more intense.
“Your cultivation is only at the fifth level of Qi Refinement?”
“I’ve made a fool of myself in front of Senior.” Jiang Beiran cupped his hands.
“Interesting.” Venerable Wu Xiang retracted his hand.” Who did you learn from?”
But before Jiang Beiran could reply, Venerable Wu Xiang waved his hand and said,””Forget it, it’s not important. From today onwards, you’re my disciple.”
The moment Venerable Wu Xiang’s words left his mouth, everyone present was shocked.
“Is he that domineering?
Jiang Beiran had just sighed in his heart when three options popped up.
[Option 1: Become Venerable Wu Xiang’s disciple. [Completion Reward: Yanluo Sword Record (Earth Grade Top -Rank)]
[Option 2: Thank Venerable Wu Xiang for his kindness and inform him that he already has a master. [Completion Reward: Random basic attribute points + ]
Jiang Beiran gasped inwardly. Option 2 was undoubtedly not giving this Venerable any face at all. It was normal for him to be killed by the Venerable so easily.
However, Jiang Beiran had seen too many abnormal things, so he quickly chose to answer the second time,””Thank you for your kindness, Venerable One, for accepting this junior as your disciple. However, this junior already has a master and definitely doesn’t dare to join others.”
[Mission completed. Reward: Strength +1]
Hearing Jiang Beiran’s answer, everyone in the industry was shocked.
‘He actually disrespected a Profound Sage
