Storm in the Wilderness, Chapter 20: I’m still young
“Big Senior Apprentice-Brother, Big Senior Apprentice-Brother……”
Fatty Zhao Dazhi came running all the way up a mountain, then panting, he quickly arrived in front of people, “Big Senior Apprentice-Brother, quick, Great Elder asked you to immediately go over to Cloud Mist Hall.”
“Fatty, what’s the matter?” Ye Chuan asked.
“Black……Black Cauldron Sect’s Sect Master Tuoba Xiong honored us with his presence, and point……, pointed out that he wanted to meet you. I heard, it’s a good matter as large as the heaven. Big Senior Apprentice-Brother, quick……, quickly go!” Fatty Zhao Dazhi was gasping for breath, and was also unbearably tired as he had dashed all the way to here.
They came quite quickly.
The eyes of Ye Chuan shone, as he was well aware about what was going on. As for Jin Hua standing beside Ye Chuan, he was feeling bitter within his heart.
Although he had already put in poison in secret, and made Ye Chuan gulp down Breaking Yang Water, but seeing good matters was about to come to the house of Ye Chuan in just a moment and get married to the beloved daughter of Black Cauldron Sect’s Sect Master, he was still unhappy inside his heart.
Now, the circumstance had changed, Dragon’s Vein Crystal was already in his hand, so for what reason should that kind of good matter still fall in the hands of Ye Chuan?
Ye Chuan secretly observed the changes in expression of Jin Hua, then calling Fatty Zhao Dazhi, he quickly left straight towards Cloud Mist Sect’s most important place Cloud Mist Hall. And while on the way, he silently circulate Heaven Swallowing Talisman within his body and left behind a somewhat moist footprints on the ground. This moment he was expelling out all of those Breaking Yang Water he had drank just now with the wine. The onlookers were stunned for a moment but they quickly followed behind them, wanting to take a look at what good matter would happen.
Grand Sect Master honoring by his presence, in the history of both Cloud Mist Sect and Black Cauldron Sect, this however was very rare matter. The news of Black Cauldron Sect’s Sect Master Tuoba Xiong personally coming, as if rock falling down into a clam lake, gave rise to heaven shaking waves.
The melodious sound of bells suddenly resounded throughout the sky of Cloud Mist Sect, grandly welcoming the arrival of Black Cauldron Sect’s Sect Master.
After hurriedly arriving at Cloud Mist Hall, Ye Chuan discovered that basically all the high level and elite personnel of sect were already present. Even though Zhu Sijia was wearing ordinary red clothing, but with her curvy figure which was developed in right place, she was particularly conspicuous even among the elite disciples. Moreover just like red flower that had burst forth, she confidently stood in front of other disciples.
Silkpants Jin Hua’s father Jin Zhikun had also came here leading a group of Alchemy Hall’s experts. And when he saw the figure of Ye Chuan, his eyes flashed with fierce cold light, soon after that he put on a false smile on his face.
Beside Great Elder, a nearly two meters tall man with long bread and ferocious gaze seemingly angry and powerful was sitting upright. And from that powerful energy fluctuation surging within his body, he obviously was a Daoist Master realm great expert. With him being able to sit on the same level with Great Elder, it might be assumed that he was Black Cauldron Sect’s Sect Master Tuoba Xiong.
“Ye Chuan greets all of you elders, and Sect Master Tuoba.” Ye Chuan slightly bowed in courtesy.
Long breaded Tuoba Xiong looked over, then sizing Ye Chuan up and down from head to toe with interest, he said, “Youngster, are you the Big Senior Apprentice-Brother Ye Chuan of Cloud Mist Sect?”
“Yes, I am.” Ye Chuan replied.
Tuoba Xiong who had always sat in high position had extraordinary aura. In front of him, not even one Hall Masters of Cloud Mist Sect dared to put up the airs, and just a single look of his would make them nervous, but Ye Chuan however was completely indifferent. Seeing his reaction, Great Elder secretly nodded, but Sect Master Tuoba Xiong however was rather surprised.
“Rank 5 Wuzhe, good, good, this generation’s Big Senior Apprentice-Brother of Cloud Mist Sect is really extraordinary, and talented. He really have a well-deserved reputation, hahaha……” After carefully sizing up Ye Chuan several times, Tuoba Xiong burst into a loud laughter, and all the experts of Black Cauldron Sect that had come together with him also had a smile on their face. The people of Cloud Mist Sect however were rather embarrassed.
Among the disciples around, Rank 5 Wuzhe wouldn’t count as being too low, but if this kind of realm was put onto the body of Big Senior Apprentice-Brother of grand sect, then that was plain losing face.
That was resounding slapping on the face!
The laughter of Tuoba Xiong was incomparably harsh in the ears of other people. Even Alchemy Hall Master Jin Zhikun had unsightly complexion. But the concerned party Ye Chuan however replied without batting an eyelid, as if he was not able to understand the ridicule inside the words of Tuoba Xiong, “In general, I’m not too well-known, but I will continue to make great effort. As a Big Senior Apprentice-Brother of the sect, developing sect is my responsibility.”
The laughter of Tuoba Xiong ceased abruptly, then looking at talking big Ye Chuan, he was dumbfounded. Right now his expression was incomparably brilliant. As for the people of Cloud Mist Sect, they also had similar expression, not knowing whether to laugh or cry.
Even if he don’t understand the meaning of the words of other person, its fine, but taking it seriously and bragging unblushingly, didn’t you Ye Chuan already lose enough face? With this manner, how can there be an alliance by marriage?
People secretly shook their head, Great Elder also was similar, had a kind of useless feeling. Well it seems the alliance by marriage fell flat.
Jin Hua who had arrived one step late was also laughing inwardly. Although he was somewhat frustrated as he couldn’t obtain ‘alliance by marriage’ this kind of good matter, but seeing Ye Chuan would also not obtain this good matter in a moment, he was happy in his heart.
“Hahaha, hahahaha, good, good, Cloud Mist Sect is really nurturing a future pillar of the state.”
Tuoba Xiong burst into a loud laughter again, and outside the expectation of other people, he was not dissatisfied. Right now he was again sizing up Ye Chuan as if he was rather satisfied with him. “From hundred years ago, my Black Cauldron Sect and Cloud Mist Sect have always been in friendly terms with each other, and also gone through thick and thin together. Now new King of Da Qin had just ascended to the throne, and in this state of great confusion, our two great sects needs to unite even more. Yun Feiwu is not here, so Great Elder, let us make an alliance by marriage, let your noble sect’s Big Senior Apprentice-Brother Ye Chuan get married with my pearl in the palm Tuoba Xiaoniao, what do you say?”
“Well, since Sect Master is interested, then this naturally is the best.” Great Elder agreed.
Currently Cloud Mist Sect was steadily declining, but Black Cauldron Sect nevertheless was like the sun at high noon in Cloud Mist Mountain Range, so if two large sect formed alliance by marriage, then it was clearly advantageous for Cloud Mist Sect, moreover they would have one less strong opponent. And as for Ye Chuan, this was a good thing as large as the heaven for him, so there was no reason to oppose.
All those people who had shaken their head and sighed, immediately became excited inwardly. As for Jin Hua, his complexion nevertheless sunk and felt unwell as if he had eaten a dead fly. Ye Chuan who showed this kind of behavior was still able to obtain the recognition of Tuoba Xiong, and continued to form an alliance by marriage, is there any justice in this world? How come such good matters never turned towards him?
Ye Chuan exclaimed, then loudly said, “Great Elder, I’m still young, so I don’t want to get married for the time being. Moreover after learning a lesson through painful experience, I clearly understood that I have no hope for cultivation, so I don’t want to continue to persist on cultivation any more. Furthermore I have already given Dragon’s Vein Crystal which was sealed within my body by Master Sect Master to junior apprentice-brother Jin Hua as a gift. Junior apprentice-brother Jin Hua is powerful, talented and is well-known cultivation genius, so this marriage too, I will give it to him. Moreover, in Purple Cloud Peak, he said to me that he always was secretly in love with Black Cauldron Sect’s Sect Master’s pearl in the palm Tuoba Xiaoniao. And in this life, if he didn’t get to marry her, then he would never marry another woman. So Sect Master Tuoba, Great Elder, considering the infatuated heart of junior apprentice-brother Jin Hua, please help him achieve his aim.”
As a once Heaven Concealing Great Sage, what kind of women Ye Chuan had not seen?
So towards this alliance marriage, he truly didn’t have any interest. Moreover, just like dealing with a man as he deals with you, after getting secretly schemed behind his back, letting this silkpants Jin Hua get married with Tuoba Xiong’s pearl in the palm would be more amusing.
“What? Ye Chuan, you……, you gifted Dragon’s Vein Crystal……”
Great Elder Zhu Huohong was shocked, you can give away Medicine Pill Formula as a gift, but how can you give a marriage? Furthermore, Dragon’s Vein Crystal however was a priceless treasure that was sealed inside the body of Ye Chuan personally by Sect Master, how can you say that you gifted it so easily?
Everyone was dumbfounded, including father of Jin Hua, Jin Zhikun and Third Elder. This change was too fast.
“That’s right, Big Senior Apprentice-Brother has already gifted me Dragon’s Vein Crystal, with this treasure, breaking through to Daoist Master realm is just around the corner. I, Jin Hua, elite disciple of Alchemy Hall greets Sect Master Tuoba!” Jin Hua stepped forward, and respectfully bowed towards Tuoba Xiong in courtesy.
Tuoba Xiong was also very surprised, never expected to have this kind of changes. Sizing Jin Hua up and down, the smile on his face became increasingly brilliant. Compared to Ye Chuan, this Jin Hua in front of his eyes was undoubtedly many times more outstanding. He was a true genius of Cloud Mist Sect. “Good, good, this youngster is really talented, Xiaoniao would definitely like you upon seeing you.”
“Boy, still not paying respect to father-in-law?” Jin Zhikun moved his lips, secretly transmitting his voce to Jin Hua.
Jin Hua was elated and bowed once again, “Jin Hua greets Your Excellency father-in-law.”
Getting married to the pearl in the palm of Black Cauldron Sect’s Sect Master, this was good thing as large as the heaven. God really has eyes, finally it’s my turn!
With strong support of Black Cauldron Sect, how could there be two ways about making Great Elder mere figure head, and grasping the authority of Cloud Mist Sect?
Jin Hua was so wild with joy that he had already forgotten about the matter of how he had persistently pursued Zhu Sijia.
And as for his father Jin Zhikun and backer Third Elder, both of them were also busy smiling.

tall man with long bread – so, he’s eating a footlong sub? 😀
Just to clarify, there is a typo in that phrase – it should be ‘beard’ not ‘bread’!
bread – something people eat (so, long bread could be a baguette 😉 )
beard – facial hair on moustache and chin areas
I realized later that same typo seems to be present in several other chapters of other series, so maybe the TL didn’t understand my comment above.
Thanks for the chapter.
Thanks for The Chapter 😀

Thanks for the chapter! Fishy marriage.
