Chapter 41 I’m Just Fulfilling Your Wish
Fang Jinyu looked over even though he knew who it was.
It was because Fang Jinyu could sense that the alchemists had already gathered together. However, he didn't look at the Holy Alchemist surnamed Lu.
As the saying goes, "Like Father, Like Son."
Since a son's behavior can be expected to resemble that of his father, Fang Jinyu could know the Holy Alchemist surnamed Lu's personality.
As such, even though Fang Jinyu was surprised that the Holy Alchemist surnamed Lu was persistent in pestering him, his heart didn't waver since the other party was a Holy Alchemist.
Fang Jinyu's gaze shifted to the few alchemists. He noticed that they were all looking at him as if they were enjoying a show. Only Master Qiankun was frowning as if he were hesitating to say something. As for the alchemists who didn't belong to the Tianling Sect, they naturally acted arrogantly and wouldn't care about the matter.
The situation made Fang Jinyu frown, as he suddenly realized something.
It was reasonable for the alchemists who didn't belong to the Tianling Sect to act in such a way. However, when the Tianling Sect's alchemists adopted the same mindset, things started to get interesting.
It was because most of the Tianling Sect's alchemists were born into noble families, and none of them were the sect's ordinary disciples.
Therefore, the reason for their attitude was most likely the matter of the Foundation Establishment Elixir.
Fang Jinyu thought, "As expected, it's all because of the profits. Master Qiankun was also born into an aristocratic family. He always considered himself the leader of the Tianling Sect's alchemists just because of his master. It's why he shows such an expression."
"He looks like he wants to stop the Holy Alchemist surnamed Lu, but he hesitated."
Since Fang Jinyu understood the situation, he didn't care about it anymore. Instead, he had other thoughts.
"Speaking of which, the Tianling Sect's Holy Alchemist who's in a life-and-death closed-door cultivation doesn't come from an aristocratic family either."
The Tianling Sect's Holy Alchemist wasn't important in the storyline. Although he would die as soon as he appeared in the book plot, the book still mentioned his name. Hence, his appearance didn't seem too perfunctory.
However, everyone would ridicule the Holy Alchemist's name when they saw it. His name was Nangong Li.
"Why doesn't the author just name him Han Wan?"
Meanwhile, Fang Jinyu was still in the mood to ridicule Nangong Li.
Since Fang Jinyu remained silent, the Alchemist Lu had no reason to continue speaking. Hence, he could only sneer.
Fang Jinyu couldn't be bothered with him and was about to leave. However, he was stopped by a Foundation Establishment stage cultivator.
The Foundation Establishment stage cultivator cupped his fists and said, "Junior Brother Fang, the peak leader has said that since it's rare for so many alchemists to gather here, he has prepared a generous gift for all of you. Please go and receive it."
Although he was a love-struck lunatic, he was a genuine Core Formation stage sword cultivator. Moreover, he was good at attacking and defending. Thus, Fang Jinyu could only nod in agreement.
When Fang Jinyu went over, the other alchemists also received the news and went over.
On the way, Master Qiankun deliberately slowed down a few steps. When Fang Jinyu arrived, he said, "Junior Brother Fang, do you know that you're embarrassing our Tianling Sect by doing this?"
"What did I do to embarrass the sect?" Fang Jinyu felt as if he was listening to a fantasy story. Hence, he was shocked.
Master Qiankun showed a poker face and continued to say, "Daoist Brother Lu is not only a friend of our Tianling Sect but also a Holy Alchemist. He is a person that can be our teacher!"
Fang Jinyu felt strange and thought, "So, in the end, this guy is still biased. However, it's normal. After all, I'm just the sect's ordinary disciple with no background. Normally, everyone thinks I'm one of the easy pushovers."
Thus, Fang Jinyu deliberately went along with him and asked, "Do you mean…"
Master Qiankun frowned because he was dissatisfied when Fang Jinyu didn't even show his basic form of respect for him. However, when he thought of Fang Jinyu as a frank person who was known for his honesty in the sect, he suppressed his displeasure and continued, "You should set up a banquet and kowtow to Daoist Brother Lu and his son in apology! You should also offer him 500000 spirit stones as a token of apology!"
Fang Jinyu could no longer keep up his pretense and said, "Are you nuts? Or are you out of your mind?"
Master Qiankun was stunned to hear Fang Jinyu's words.
It was because no one had ever dared speak to him in such a rude way. It was especially true when he became a disciple of the sect's Holy Alchemist. He was famous in the sect and all the Foundation Establishment stage alchemists regarded him as their leader.
He became enraged following that.
Master Qiankun glared at Fang Jinyu and said, "What did you say?! Do you dare say it again?!"
"Are you nuts? Or are you out of your mind?" Fang Jinyu readily accepted his request. Since Master Qiankun liked to hear it, he would do as he said! He was just fulfilling his wishes!
Master Qiankun roared, "Bastard!"
Fang Jinyu showed a poker face and said, "I'm not sure whether I'm a bastard, but I'm sure that you're a bastard. How dare your knees be so soft when you're a disciple of the Tianling Sect? Do you typically kneel before people other than our sect? The Tianling Sect is one of the six great immortal sects in Nine Desolations! We even have a late-stage Nascent Soul Grandmaster in our sect! Which sect on earth dares to provoke us? Even the five sects that are also part of the six great immortal sects are only on the same level as us! Do you want me to kneel in front of them? What are your intentions? Also, who do you think you are?!"
Fang Jinyu turned and left after he finished his words. He left Master Qiankun standing there with an ashen look.
Due to the delay caused by Master Qiankun, when Fang Jinyu arrived, he realized that everyone had already received their gifts. However, Ling Xiaojiu wasn't around. A female disciple was distributing the gifts on his behalf.
The female disciple was only ranked 3 in the Qi Condensation stage. She was from the same clan as Ling Xiaojiu. She was supposed to have no connections with him five years earlier, but since she possessed the Tianling spiritual root, her family regained connections with the direct descendants of the Ling family.
According to seniority, she was Ling Xiaojiu's younger sister.
Fang Jinyu knew so much about her because she had appeared in the book. However, she wasn't a good character, so she naturally didn't have a happy ending.
She had fought with the female lead, Su Yier, for Ling Xiaojiu and even tried to harm Su Yier. Hence, she ended up being killed by Ling Xiaojiu.
Of course, the current Ling Wutong hasn't turned even yet. Moreover, she hadn't schemed anyone yet. She was still a weak and gentle young lady since she was still in her prime and had just joined the Tianling Sect.
Ling Wutong was a little shy and said to Fang Jinyu, "Martial Uncle, this is yours."
Fang Jinyu accepted the gift and said, "Thank you so much, Junior Sister Ling." Since there were no restrictive enchantments on the packaging, he could immediately tell what was inside with a sweep of his divine sense.
It was a spirit talisman.
It wasn't an ordinary talisman since it had the Liudao Sect's special mark on it. He could exchange it for a high-tier spiritual alchemy furnace from the Liudao Sect.
Fang Jinyu couldn't help but sigh in his heart, "Ling Xiaojiu is indeed a rich man who is often mentioned in the book!" He had gained advantages on his trip solely because of the item.
However, when Fang Jinyu thought of it, he immediately felt that something was amiss.
No matter how rich Ling Xiaojiu was, the gift was too costly!
At this moment, Fang Jinyu suddenly realized that someone was staring at him. He had thought that it was his enemy, but when he looked over, he realized that it was Ling Wutong.
The young girl was looking at him. When she realized he was looking at her, she quickly looked away with a blushing face.
"Why is this cannon fodder looking at me?"
Fang Jinyu was confused.
So he asked.
When the young girl heard it, she didn't hide her intentions. She was a little shy and said, "Martial Uncle, how do you know that my surname is Ling?"
Fang Jinyu made up a story with a natural expression, "You're only a Qi Condensation stage cultivator, but you can distribute the gifts on behalf of Martial Uncle Ling. Hence, you should be Martial Uncle Ling's younger sister. You can address me as your senior brother and don't have to call me your martial uncle."
