When the others heard this, surprise flashed across their eyes: “There’s news about Martial Uncle Wanyan?”
“Yes there is, but why should I tell you?” Wanyan Shisan cast a glance at them, then poured a glass of wine and drank it. He looked so annoyed that the disciples couldn’t help but be surprised.
Why wouldn’t he tell them? They wouldn’t do anything to Martial Uncle Wanyan.
“Waiter, is my food ready? Why are you so slow?” Wanyan Shisan shouted impatiently.
“It’s coming, it’s coming.” The waiter replied as he brought out the dishes of food and placed them on the table. Then he said to Wanyan Shisan: “Guest, eat these two dishes first. The rest will be out soon.” Then he retreated.
Wanyan Shisan picked up his chopsticks and tapped on the table. He glanced at them and said angrily: “Why are you all staring at me? Why aren’t you leaving?”
After he said this, they went back to their rooms to rest and recuperate their bodies.
As for Feng Jiu, she didn’t leave her room till the evening, but the two tiger beasts didn’t follow her. When Wanyan Shisan saw that the two tiger beasts had disappeared, he asked immediately: “Did you send them out again?”
Feng Jiu only said one word, then she went to the first floor and ordered a few dishes and a pot of wine. While she waited for the dishes to be served, she noticed that someone was looking at her. Hence, she followed the gaze and saw two men wearing the Immortal Sect’s robes. Her eyebrows raised slightly and she asked: “What’s the matter with those two? Where did they come from?”
“Apparently they met by chance in the city.” Wanyan Shisan said with a smile. Then he looked at Feng Jiu half-smiling: “I reckon those people are curious about your identity. I heard that they are disciples who have been training outside and haven’t returned to the Immortal Sect for a long time, so when they met those two disciples, they must have inquired about you.”
“Oh, I see.”
She nodded and showed that she understood. Judging by the expressions of the two younger disciples, they probably didn’t recognise her. After all, her appearance at the moment was currently in disguise, and she wasn’t wearing a dazzling red dress. Si Que and Mu Xin probably wouldn’t be able to recognise her either.
In the wing-room upstairs, the disciples looked down at the two other disciples and asked: “Who is that person in the azure clothes? Do you recognise him?”
The two disciples shook their heads: “We haven’t seen him before! We don’t know who he is.”
“Impossible!” One of the men said. After he thought for a while, he said: “The Senior in azure clothes is in disguise. I overheard them talking and Senior Wanyan said that she is actually a woman.”
“I don’t know, I don’t recognise her.” The two of them continued to shake their heads.
Upon hearing this, the man whose surname was Qin asked with a sullen face: “After we left the sect, did any major incidents happen?”
When the two of them heard this, they hesitated for a while, not knowing how to reply. Of course a major incident had occurred during this time, and it was something that shook up the entire sect. Other than the disciples who were practising outside, almost everyone in the entire sect knew about it.
“Speak! Don’t hesitate.” He shouted in a cold voice.
“Senior Brother Qin, during this period of time while you weren’t in the Immortal Sect, some strange things did happen.” The man who spoke paused, then he continued: “Within the Sect, Venerable Si Que and Venerable Mu Xin lost the contest to others and in the end, they acknowledged them as their Masters.”
