Vol.3-Chapter 135 – Preparing to Make An Entrance
“I finally understand why the Mysterious Heaven Sword Sect has lasted for so long.”
San Wu turned the buddhist beads in his hand. He had a smile on his face while he watched the situation in the distance.
“It’s not difficult to see that even ordinary disciples of the Mysterious Heaven Sword Sect have courageous auras. It's even more evident among the higher-ups and elders. One can often determine the state of a sect by looking at how their disciples act. Some sects may look like they have a solid foundation and take countless disciples. However, whenever their disciples face any setbacks, they feel like the world is falling apart. Some sects look tepid, but their disciples never forget their teachings. The Mysterious Heaven Sword Sect has been the leader for thousands of years. Even though it’s in gradual decline, it has always kept its original teaching, unlike the Ten Thousand Dao Sect, which has been blinded by its own fame. Also… I don’t think the Mysterious Heaven Sword Sect is as simple as it looks on the surface!”
At the end, San Wu didn’t forget to look at Zhao Jiuge. He had a playful smile on his face—it was as if he knew Zhao Jiuge’s little secret.
Zhao Jiuge was in somewhat of a daze. The aura San Wu had given off just now was not like that of a little monk from some nameless temple. Although it was just for a moment, Zhao Jiuge didn’t doubt himself. In particular, those final words made it sound like he knew what was going on inside the Mysterious Heaven Sword Sect.
The rumors that had been circulating recently stated that after the previous Chief Head Disciple of the Mysterious Heaven Sword Sect, Ceng Qingniu, disappeared, the sect no longer had any disciples talented enough to shake the world. Some people even suspected that the top fighting force of the Mysterious Heaven Sword Sect had died due to old age. The Ten Thousand Dao Sect and Yue Hua Academy had constantly been challenging the bottom line of the Mysterious Heaven Sword Sect. The Mysterious Heaven Sword Sect never reacted, and this lack of retaliation had roused the ambition of the Ten Thousand Dao Sect, Yue Hua Academy, and even other first-rate sects that wanted to replace the Mysterious Heaven Sword Sect.
Zhao Jiuge didn’t even care about the current situation and instead looked back at San Wu. He had a smile on his face as he said, “San Wu, you’re not an ordinary person. From your cultivation and aura, you’re definitely not a disciple from some nameless temple. I had my doubts once I found out about your cultivation, but I wasn’t sure. However, from those words just now, I know I’m not wrong.”
Zhao Jiuge thought that San Wu would panic or dodge his gaze, but none of that happened. With a mysterious smile on his face, San Wu said, “Who I am is not important. The most important thing to know is that I’m your friend and I won’t harm you. As for my identity, I believe you will learn of it later.”
Zhao Jiuge had always been cautious, and San Wu’s ambiguous words had filled him with curiosity. He wanted to ask more, but he saw Pei Su Su wink at him, so he didn’t say anything.
After being together for so long, Pei Su Su had an idea about San Wu’s identity but wasn’t certain. Either way, his identity was extraordinary, but Pei Su Su knew that San Wu was not a bad person. Since he didn’t want to reveal it, there was no need to force him. Plus, she hadn't revealed her identity either. 𝘣𝘦𝘥𝘯𝑜𝑣𝘦𝘭.𝘤𝘰𝑚
Pei Su Su had some worries about San Wu due to her own identity, but it was good enough to know that San Wu wouldn't do Zhao Jiuge any wrong. That’s why she quickly changed the topic to the three people fighting.
Pei Su Su had her arm around Zhao Jiuge’s shoulders, and she jokingly said, “This Music Sword Pavillion’s foundation is not bad, but pretending to be cool before disciples of the Mysterious Heaven Sword Sect is a mistake. The famous Chief Head Disciple of the Mysterious Heaven Sword Sect, Zhao Jiuge, is right here.”
Her goal was to turn their attention to something else.
“Pretending to be cool before the wrong people.”
Pei Su Su’s words caused San Wu to laugh like crazy.
Zhao Jiuge was startled for a moment, then he revealed a warm smile. He didn’t know which side of her was the real her. Sometimes she was like a goddess that was high above, but other times she could laugh along with him. No matter what, he had to admit that she had walked deeply into his heart. Even San Wu had gotten good at talking back after being near her for so long.
Zhao Jiuge thought that he would spend the rest of his life with Pei Su Su, but what he didn’t know was that in the future, he would be entangled in a storm of love and hate with several women.
The sound of the collision of spirit forces spread throughout the area, causing leaves to fall like rain.
There wasn’t much difference between their probing attacks. Leng Rufeng and Luo Xie were able to block Liang Yongtian’s dense spirit force.
Liang Yongtian revealed a smile of disdain. The high-quality spirit treasure in his hand shined, and he released a ray of sword energy. Seeing this, Leng Rufeng and Luo Xie didn’t dare to take it lightly. The two of them quickly used their own flying swords as well.
There was no time to use any sword art. If they tried, the sword energy would hit them before they could do anything. That’s why Leng Rufeng and Luo Xie quickly raised their swords to block.
As inner disciples of the Mysterious Heaven Sword Sect, their swords shouldn’t be this low in quality, but they had just joined the inner sect, plus they came from common households. Normally, people at their cultivation level could complete missions that gave a lot of sect contributions, which would allow them to buy spirit treasure swords, but right now they had to prepare for the Battle Competition, so they had no time to do missions.
Leng Rufeng and Luo Xie’s swords were two precious treasures that Zhao Jiuge had given them after he and Bai Qingqing destroyed Han Songcheng’s nest. During the last two years, they had also completed missions and earned contribution credits, but those had been used on cultivation resources and defensive treasures. Their own strength was the top priority because as long as they were strong, getting treasures wouldn’t be an issue.

Blood-colored and silver-colored lights flashed toward Liang Yongtian’s sword energy. Even with the two of them together, they weren’t able to get the upper hand against Liang Yongtian. Since he was able to become the Chief Head Disciple of the Music Sword Pavilion at such a young age, it was safe to assume that he was quite talented.
Luo Xie’s sword energy collided with Liang Yongtian’s sword energy first, and it melted like ice before a raging fire. Only when it collided with Leng Rufeng’s sword energy was its power exhausted. This all happened in a flash, but the power they had used had taken a while to accumulate.
“That was just a warm up. Now let me show you my true power.”
Liang Yongtian was not shocked that he wasn’t able to do anything to them with his two probing strikes, because they were still disciples of a holy land. But this was for the better because the more difficult it was, the more he could show off to his junior brothers and sister. Liang Yongtian looked at the two of them with disdain—it was as if he could already see their fate.
After he finished speaking, his eyes became sharp and he began to swing his sword. It looked like he was preparing to use the sword art passed down in the Music Sword Pavilion.
The Music Sword Pavilion’s teachings were a bit mixed. The school not only had sword arts, but also taoist laws and other inheritances. They also didn’t just focus on cultivation, instead putting a lot of effort toward poetry and the arts.
Disciples of the Music Sword Pavilion were all versed in the arts. Aside from magic treasures, they each owned a musical instrument as well!
Liang Yongtian was the genius of the Music Sword Pavilion, and he was proficient in various things. However, his favorite was the sword, so the first thing he used was the sword art of the Music Sword Pavilion.
The flowing spirit force was dazzling, and the sword energy released was not fierce but instead rather beautiful. However, it would be a fatal mistake to be fooled by this sword energy. Sometimes, the most beautiful things were filled with danger!
Seeing Liang Yongtian’s fierce attack and beautiful sword art, Leng Rufeng and Luo Xie looked at each other. They saw the determination in each other’s eyes.
They were not a match for Liang Yongtian when it came to cultivation, and their swords were far inferior, but that wouldn’t stop them from matching him with their sword art. While they didn’t understand why Liang Yongtian had decided to start trouble with them, they wouldn't back down, because they were disciples of the Mysterious Heaven Sword Sect. As a sword cultivator from the Mysterious Heaven Sword Sect, they naturally had a fighting spirit against others using swords as well!
Leng Rufeng and Luo Xie looked at each other before shouting out one word together. They then released the Mysterious Heaven Sword Art. They had only learned up to the second layer, but their understanding of it was profound.
Even though the other side was more powerful and had more people, that didn’t stop them from fighting back. What was more exciting than fighting together with your fellow brother? However, they thought fondly of the day when Zhao Jiuge led all the disciples from common households against those disciples from influential families. They both wondered where Zhao Jiuge was training right now.
