Walking out of the Equipment Refining Sect, Xu Que could feel the peace outside the gate. The horrible killing intent, the repulsive blood smell, and the anger had disappeared. Apparently, all the issues had been solved. While they were looting the Equipment Refining Sect, Mo Junchen was getting rid of the bad guys in his sect.
However, when Xu Que stepped out of the gate, he saw another powerhouse who had just reached the summit of the Golden Celestial Stage. He couldn’t hold a candle to a powerhouse who had reached the summit of the Golden Celestial Stage several thousand years ago like Mo Junchen. Now, this guy was kneeling in front of Mo Junchen quietly. It seemed he was waiting for his death and didn’t want to defend himself.
What? Is it necessary? Although the strength gap between them is huge, this guy is definitely able to run away! Xu Que was confused as he touched his jaw. This middle-aged man was weaker than Mo Junchen. However, he was much more powerful than King Refiner Liu who was just at the Initial Stage of the Golden Celestial Stage. Therefore, he had the ability to run for his life. Why did this guy kneel in front of Mo Junchen and wait for his death?
“Why did you do that? You know I honor the aim of the Equipment Refining Sect very much! You know I don’t allow the Equipment Refining Sect to fight for wealth and privilege! Why did you do that?” Mo Junchen asked as he stared at that middle-aged man coldly. Xu Que frowned. Apparently, Mo Junchen knew this middle-aged man.
“I had to do that because it was an irresistible trend!” Without any panic, the middle-aged man replied firmly. However, he lowered his head when he said that and didn’t dare to look at Mo Junchen. This stance was not the result of fear but of the reverence of a junior in front of a senior.
“An irresistible trend?” Mo Junchen was stunned a bit by the man’s reply. He had been trapped in the God of Hell’s Realm for several thousand years. A lot of things had changed in this world. If his sect had to change because of the trends in the world, he couldn’t blame this middle-aged man.
“Right! An irresistible trend. The World of Near Celestials has totally changed. The Heaven Continent is sublime. The Earth Continent and the Xuanhuang Continent will be abandoned, which is totally unacceptable for me because these two continents used to be an integral part of the Heaven Continent. I needed to make some changes, or we will cease to advance forever!” The middle-aged man replied reverently.
“Does Ho Ming know what you are doing?” Mo Junchen asked directly. The middle-aged man trembled a bit and a strand of ironic smile appeared on his face. Then he looked up at Mo Junchen and said with a smile, “So many years have passed, compared to your apprentice, I am still not trustworthy, right? I am your grandson! Grandfather!”
Holy sh*t! Xu Que, who was not far away from them, shouted to himself, widening his eyes. It turns out this middle-aged man was Mo Junchen’s grandson! Mo Junchen also looked like a middle-aged man. It was quite weird when a middle-aged man called another middle-aged man grandfather. However, it was quite common in the world of Cultivators.
“Hey, Guardian Mo, you are scolding your grandson, right?” Xu Que stepped up and said thoughtfully. Mo Junchen sighed and said, shaking his head, “This is a grandson who is not recognized by me. Nobody knew the relationship between us. But…I didn’t expect he would become the deputy sect leader of the Equipment Refining Sect!”
“Please tell me your story!” Xu Que made a gesture of invitation with his hand.
“I really don’t want to talk about it. Maybe I was too strict with my daughter in those years. However, I had to obey the rules of our sect. Otherwise, how could I face my ancestors and seniors?” Mo Junchen said, shaking his head thoughtfully.
Xu Que smiled and didn’t ask for details. He turned to the middle-aged man and asked, “Do you have a story? Actually, I am quite interested in that irresistible trend mentioned by you just now!” The middle-aged man glanced at Xu Que disdainfully as if a man like Xu Que was not qualified to talk to him.
Suddenly, a loud slap echoed. The middle-aged man looked at Xu Que as he covered his face in disbelief. He didn’t expect this leader of that so-called Exploding Heavens Faction, who was just like an ant in front of him, would dare to slap his face in public.
“What are you looking at? You are not happy, right? Your grandfather is my underling and colleague. According to the tradition in my hometown, you should call me Grandpa Xu!” Xu Que shouted at the middle-aged man. The middle-aged man was stunned for he didn’t know his grandfather had joined the Exploding Heavens Faction. Otherwise, he wouldn’t have disrespected Xu Que like that. However, Mo Junchen’s silence told him everything. The middle-aged man couldn’t help but twitch his lips with embarrassment. He didn’t expect his upright and outspoken grandfather would join the Exploding Heavens Faction and call that young man at the Human Celestial Stage Faction Leader! It was so difficult for him to accept the fact.
“Zhang Sui, the Faction Leader is asking you a question. Just tell us what happened!” At this time, Mo Junchen’s face softened. It seemed he had accepted this grandson. Zhang Sui also sighed in relief and said seriously, “You didn’t ask why I did that without telling Huo Ming. Thank you! Finally, I feel your trust in me!” Then a smile appeared on his face. Xu Que noticed Zhang Sui’s smile was from the bottom of his heart as if he had been a small kid who was commended by elders.
“Tsk, tsk, tsk, that’s enough. Just answer my question!” Xu Que urged impatiently. Actually, he could understand Zhang Sui’s reaction. According to the conversation between Zhang Sui and Mo Junchen, Xu Que knew Zhang Sui was the son of Mo Junchen’s daughter, whose marriage had not been accepted by the Equipment Refining Sect, let alone Zhang Sui who was the result of that marriage. So, Mo Junchen didn’t like Zhang Sui at all and even didn’t want to recognize him. Apparently, this was a large hit for a small kid. After all, kids were innocent. However, Xu Que was not interested in the stories of Mo Junchen’s family for his business had the highest priority.
At this time, Zhang Sui changed his attitude toward Xu Que and was no longer concerned with what Xu Que did to him just now. He believed the attitude change of his grandfather had been caused by the appearance of Xu Que. In fact, no one thought Xu Que’s slap was anything serious. After all, Mo Junchen had joined the Exploding Heavens Faction. So Xu Que was qualified to slap the deputy sect leader of the Equipment Refining Sect.
“Actually, Huo Ming knows what I am doing because both of us agree about spreading the influence of the Equipment Refining Sect to all big sects in the six Celestial Realms!” Zhang Sui said. As the current leader of the Equipment Refining Sect and the apprentice of Mo Junchen, Huo Ming had won the trust of Mo Junchen and would follow Mo Junchen’s strategies in ruling the Equipment Refining Sect. However, he had tried to enhance the strength of the Equipment Refining Sect and control all the sects in the six Celestial Realms after reaching an agreement with Zhang Sui. Apparently, something forced them to do so.
“Why would you do that?” Mo Junchen asked at this time. This was the second time for him to ask this question. However, he was no longer as harsh as before. It was not an interrogation but a calm inquiry.
Zhang Sui looked up at the sky and said seriously, “The Heaven Continent is about to change soon! If the Earth Continent fails to board the big ship of the Heaven Continent, we will be abandoned and cease to make progress forever!”
