1495 Let Master Tell You

    In the evening, after the disciples in every peak had reported the news to their Masters, the Masters of each Peak were secretly surprised.

    "Really? That Master Third Sun has really gone into seclusion to refine a Heaven-defying pill?" One of the Peak Masters stared at his disciple and asked.

    "Yes Master, I heard it from the lips of Junior Brother Ruan himself." The middle aged man replied respectfully.

    Upon hearing this, the Peak Master frowned: "If it's really true, then why did he tell you? There's something strange about this matter."

    "Master, he had only come to have a chat with me and drink some wine. His Eldest Senior Brother had clashed with their Master because of this matter and was seriously injured as a result. He is still lying in his cave dwelling unconscious at the moment. Junior Brother Ruan was not in a good mood because of this matter, that's why he came to look for me to have a drink with him. He only let slip after a few drinks."

    That disciple continued speaking: "Disciple felt that this matter is of great importance, hence I immediately came to report it to you after I arranged for someone to send Junior Brother Ruan back. If there really is a Heaven-defying pill, then Third Sun Peak's reputation will surely surpass ours. Disciple felt that no matter what, I still had to report this matter to you Master and let you decide what to do."

    After listening to this, the Peak Master stroked his beard and pondered for a while, then said: "Even if this matter is true, what reason do we have for preventing it from happening? If the Sect Master was to find out, I'm afraid...."

    "Master, Third Sun Peak is known to the outside world as being the top of all the Peaks within the Sect. If we were to allow Master Third Sun to refine the Heaven-defying pill, I'm afraid that when all the other Masters see him, they would have to lower your heads and bow to him. It doesn't matter if disciple is ridiculed, but disciple is really unwilling to hear people on the outside about the other Peak as if they can't compare to Third Sun Peak."

    When he heard this, the Peak Master's face sank, and as he was stroking his beard, his hand fell suddenly and tugged his beard causing him to cry out in pain.

    He glanced at his disciple in embarrassment and thought about it, then said: "If this matter is really true, then, come here." He gestured for him to come closer and whispered a few instructions to him, then gestured with his hand: "Go now!"

    "Yes, disciple will go and get it done immediately." The disciple beamed with joy and hurried outside.

    At this moment, Shangguan Wanrong who was unconscious in the cave dwelling in the Ninth Peak awoke upon smelling some pungent medicine. When opened her eyes in a daze, she saw Master Third Sun walking towards her with a whip dipped in liquid medicine.

    "You're awake? It's just as well."

    Master Third Sun stopped about three steps away from her with the whip in his hand and looked at her: "Wanrong, you can't really blame Teacher. If it wasn't for me, you would still be trapped in that Shangguan House, am I right?"

    "Don't worry, I will make sure you play your role to your greatest potential. I won't let you come onto this earth for nothing. No one knows that you are in here with me, so you will still maintain a dignified identity as I, Master Third Sun's core disciple."

    "Spit!"

    Shangguan Wanrong looked at him coldly: "Hypocrite! You're not even comparable to a beast! You have no right to call yourself a Master!"

    "Haha, it's okay. You can scold me all you want! Very soon, you won't be able to scold me anymore." Master Third Sun smiled carelessly and shook the whip with his hand: "Do you know what this is? I have been soaking this whip in liquid medicine from the moment I took you in as my disciple. Do you know what it's for?"

    "I bet you don't know. It's okay, let me tell you. I will definitely tell you and not let you endure this without knowing why."
