My Disciples Are All Villains - Chapter 1070 - Compensation
Chapter 1070: Compensation
Gongsun Yuanxuan was the Grand Tutor of Great Ming. He was a famous expert with 12 Birth Charts since 2,000 years ago. Together with another expert from Great Ming, they were known as Great Ming’s Twin Saints. In the white lotus domain, only experts with at least 12 Birth Charts dared to challenge Lan Xihe to a sparring session in the White Tower Council.
When Great Ming’s royal court received news that Lan Xihe was injured and the injuries were not light, they thought it was a great chance to take down the White Tower Council no matter which angle they analyzed it from. Moreover, rumor had it that the White Tower Council was at odds with the Evil Sky Pavilion. Apart from that, the Black Tower Council’s seven towers were recently destroyed, and its Tower Master was recuperating. With the Black Tower Council serving as an example, the Dark and Light Alliance and Great Yuan’s royal court did not dare to act rashly. With all these factors, they truly felt they had been given a golden opportunity to take down the White Tower Council.
Alas, Great Ming’s royal court was soundly defeated.
The snowflake melted into icy droplets of water that rolled down Gongsun Yuanxuan’s cheeks. It felt as though ants were crawling on his face; it felt cold and itchy.
A bone-piercing cold permeated his internal organs that began from his chest. The remnant energy from Lu Zhou’s strike continued nailing him to the ground, rendering him immobile. The temporary numbness he felt slowly gave way to excruciating pain. It had been a long time since he last felt this way.
Gongsun Yuanxuan’s thinking was rather twisted. He wanted to savor the excruciating pain; he wanted to remember this feeling. This pain was nothing compared to the knowledge that he had failed and lost one of his Birth Charts.
That was right. When he was sent flying out of the training hall, one triangle had darkened on his astrolabe. This felt even worse than death!
Lu Zhou remained calm. He was no stranger to this scene. Moreover, he only destroyed one Birth Chart and gained 6,000 merit points; it was nothing to get worked up about. It was expected that the palm strike that contained the supreme mystic power would destroy at least one Birth Chart.
On the other hand, Si Wuya and Lan Xihe were in awe.
Lan Xihe was aware that even if she was at the peak of her strength, she would not be capable of such a feat. It was impossible for her to stay motionless and let Gongsun Yuanxuan’s grand technique hit her without suffering any damages. In the end, she could not help but clap her hands. “Amazing, truly amazing…”
At this time, Lan Xihe’s condition seemed to have improved slightly. Perhaps, it was due to her good mood.
Meanwhile, Si Wuya, the blue-clad female attendant, and a few other female attendants moved to the railings and looked down at Gongsun Yuanxuan who was lying on the ground and facing the sky.
“That’s enough.” Si Wuya transmitted his voice from the 81st floor.
When Gongsun Yuanxuan heard these words, he felt his chest tighten and spat out a mouthful of blood. What familiar words! It seemed like they were mocking him. If he had listened to these words earlier, would he have ended up in such a state?
“Come up,” Si Wuya said before he walked back into the training hall.
Below the white tower.
Many white-clad cultivators hovered in the air as they looked at Gongsun Yuanxuan who was sprawled on the ground.
At this moment, Ning Wanqing flew out of the crowd of white-clad cultivators and asked, “Grand Tutor, are you alright?”
Gongsun Yuanxuan ignored Ning Wanqing. He supported himself with his hands as he sat before he glared at Ning Wanqing. “Did you come to mock me as well?”
“I’m not that kind of person,” Ning Wanqing said. “I just feel bad for the Grand Tutor.”
Gongsun Yuanxuan snorted coldly. “Don’t be hypocritical and smug. The one who defeated me is Pavilion Master Lu of the Evil Sky Pavilion, not your Tower Master.”
“Of course, I know it’s Pavilion Master Lu.” Ning Wanqing was blind; he could never judge someone by their appearance since he could not see them.
“Does this mean the White Tower Council and the Evil Sky Pavilion have been colluding for a long time now?”
“If you want to live longer, I suggest you restrain yourself. I feel like I’m talking to a pig when I’m talking to you. To think you’re the Grand Tutor of Great Ming, a 12 Chart expert. If you think anger can solve your problem, by all means, continue what you’re doing…” Ning Wanqing said.
Gongsun Yuanxuan was about to lose his temper when he heard Ning Wanqing referred to him as a pig, but, after listening to Ning Wanqing’s subsequent words, he felt as though he had been doused with a bucket of ice water. Naturally, he knew anger would not and could not solve his problem.
After a moment, Gongsun Yuanxuan shakily rose to his feet. He patted off the snow on his body before he raised his head to look at the white tower that pierced through the clouds. He sighed.
After sensing that Gongsun Yuanxuan had calmed down, Ning Wanqing said, “I have a piece of advice for you.”
“Speak, I’ll listen,” Gongsun Yuanxuan said.
“Don’t judge the Evil Sky Pavilion using common sense. They’re far more powerful than you think. To be honest, I really want you to die. However, that won’t be beneficial to the White Tower Council for now. Take care.” Ning Wanqing left after he said those words.
Gongsun Yuanxuan was in a daze. To think he was speechless after being scolded by a junior.
In the training hall.
Lan Xihe looked at Lu Zhou’s back skeptically and asked, “Which one is the real you?”
Lu Zhou turned around and said, “That’s not important.”
Si Wuya helped his master out by saying, “Tower Master Lan, why is it so hard to believe? You can maintain your youth; what makes you think my master, whose cultivation isn’t weaker than yours, can’t do the same?”
Lan Xihe nodded and said softly, “You have a point. It’s just that it’s slightly difficult to adapt to the sudden and drastic change…”
Lan Xihe no longer dwelled on the matter. After all, she had lived for so long that she no longer measured someone by their appearance. Although she looked very young, many people treated her like an old witch who had lived for tens of thousands of years. Finally, she asked, “Pavilion Master Lu, why didn’t you kill him? After losing a Birth Chart, he’ll definitely hold it against you…”
Lu Zhou had used up all his supreme mystic power, and he did not think it was worth it to waste his item cards on killing Gongsun Yuanxuan. He did not respond to Lan Xihe’s question directly. Instead, he said, “Not bad. You used such a trick to borrow other’s hand to kill your enemy.”
First, Lan Xihe had used the blue crystal that contained the Great Void energy to lure Lu Zhou over. Then, she tried to instigate him to kill Gongsun Yuanxuan.
Lan Xihe said, “I admit that I have selfish motives… However, Pavilion Master Lu, you won’t just stand at the side and do nothing, right?”
Lu Zhou did not respond to her question again. Instead, he said, “You’ve overlooked a crucial problem.”
“Since I can kill Gongsun Yuanxuan, I can also kill you.”
Lan Xihe was rendered speechless for a moment. It was true that schemes and cunning were nothing in front of absolute power.
At this moment, Gongsun Yuanxuan and flew up to the 81st floor. He clutched his chest as he walked into the training hall with an unsightly expression on his face. After he came to a stop about ten meters away from Lu Zhou, he bowed. “Thank you for showing mercy, Pavilion Master Lu.”
Absolute strength could also easily dispel doubts and suspicions.
At this time, Gongsun Yuanxuan had already completely regarded the seemingly young Lu Zhou as the powerful Pavilion Master of the Evil Sky Pavilion.
“If you’d listened to the advice you were given, you wouldn’t have ended up in such a state,” Lu Zhou said.
“Pavilion Master Lu, you’re right… Please let me live, Pavilion Master Lu,” Gongsun Yuanxuan said bluntly and humbly. However, he could not help but feel stifled inwardly.
Lu Zhou thought about it for a moment before he glanced at the smiling Lan Xihe from the corners of his eyes. Lan Xihe was indeed not simple. How could he let her reap the benefits of his hard work? In the end, he said directly, “If you want to live, send 100 obsidian essences to the Evil Sky Pavilion.”
Gongsun Yuanxuan’s eyes widened when he heard Lu Zhou’s words. How could take out 100 obsidian essences just like that? The bag he brought out earlier only contained 20 obsidian essences.
Even the White Tower Council that had monopolized obsidian essences for so many years only managed to accumulate roughly 100 obsidian essences at most.
“Pavilion Master Lu, can the obsidian essences be replaced with other items? I really don’t have 100 obsidian essences,” Gongsun Yuanxuan bowed and said, “Perhaps, one would need at least 1,000 years to accumulate 100 obsidian essences. Moreover, the White Tower Council had monopolized the obsidian essences for such a long time.”
Lu Zhou said, “That’s not my problem. However, I can give you another option.” Then, he brought out the blue crystal from his sleeve and showed it to Gongsun Yuanxuan as he said, “One of these can be exchanged for half of the obsidian essences I asked for…”
‘Blue crystal?’ Gongsun Yuanxuan instinctively turned to look at Lan Xihe.
