    Chapter 501: Reaching Jade Tripod Sect

    Translator: CKtalon  Editor: CKtalon

    In the Jade Tripod Sect, the sect master's cave abode was extremely silent. However, there were what looked to be two Dao Children standing guard at its entrance. Although they looked like Dao Children, however, they were in fact powerful Guardian Generals.

    "Whoosh."

    A white-browed immortal riding a cloud landed at the entrance.

    "Uncle-Master Yang, you are here?" Two figures rushed out of the cave abode. They were two of the strongest figures in Jade Tripod Sect-the sect master and the Dao Protector!

    "Greetings, Uncle-Master Yang." Sect Master Jade Tripod and the Dao Protector bowed with a smile.

    "Okay." The white-browed immortal took the initiative to enter the cave abode. Sect Master Jade Tripod and the Dao Protector followed by his side.

    Soon.

    The three sat down beside a lotus pond inside the cave abode.

    "Uncle-Master Yang, might I know what is it that requires the help of us disciple-nephews?" inquired Sect Master Jade Tripod. He was an eighth firmament Skyimmortal! The Dao Protector beside him was aged in appearance but his strength was even higher. He was a ninth firmament Skyimmortal.

    But strictly speaking, Sect Master Jade Tripod and the Dao Protector were fourth generation disciples of the Primordial Beginning lineage!

    The white-browed immortal was a third generation Primordial Beginning disciple. The Primordial Beginning lineage's Jade Void Palace was strict when it came to accepting disciples, making their numbers rather low. There were a small number among the third generation disciples who were Golden Immortals. The remaining ones were nearly all cream of the crop when it came to ninth firmament Skyimmortals.

    "I've heard that Green Touring Palace's Qin Yun has a son named Meng Huan who is one of your disciples in the Jade Tripod Sect, am I right?" asked the white-browed immortal with a smile.

    Sect Master Jade Tripod and Dao Protector exchanged looks.

    "I just went to make a trip to Jade Void Palace and learned of this matter after getting the information from Qin Yun," continued the white-browed immortal.

    "Yes, Meng Huan's father is indeed Qin Yun," said Sect Master Jade Tripod. "The last time he was here, Qin Yun had used Meng Yiqiu's appearance and identity to reunite with Meng Huan. Later, he forged a new sword immortal lineage and was recruited into Green Touring Palace, so we have always maintained the secret of Qin Yun and his son."

    "Very good." The white-browed immortal smiled with a nod. "I'm hoping that the both of you can help me invite Qin Yun here. His son is in the Jade Tripod Sect, so I'm sure he will definitely come if you invite him."

    "Invite him here to Jade Tripod Sect?" Sect Master Jade Tripod and the Dao Protector were perplexed.

    They placed a great importance on their relationship with Qin Yun.

    In the Three Realms, relationships between immortals were important. If one had a tight relationship with a powerful figure, it could be a life saving factor at critical moments!

    "Might I know why you request this?" pressed Sect Master Jade Tripod.

    A glint flashed in the white-browed immortal's eyes as he said coldly, "To deal with Skyfiends!"

    "I have a vendetta against two powerful enemies that I want to deal with. It's easy to defeat them, but killing them would be very difficult," he said coldly. "Most immortals aim for a carefree life of immortality! Few wish to fight with powerful Skyfiends."

    "Cultivating certainly isn't easy," said Sect Master Jade Tripod with a nod. "The ones fond of bravery and fighting might be able to kill Skyfiends when they engage them in battle, but similarly, the Skyfiends can also kill immortals. Those battles can happen numerous times... but with more battles, the greater the possibility there is of losing one's life. All those years of cultivation would be for naught. We cultivators seek eternal life above all else. And for someone to be close in strength to you, Uncle-Master Yang, they must also be close to that of a Golden Immortal. They will be fully focused on becoming one. There's even less of a chance they would wish to risk their lives fighting Skyfiends."

    "I understand." The white-browed immortal nodded. "I've already found a helper, but I'm still lacking one that's adept at domains. Qin Yun was considered quite good when he defeated Demon King Bear Mountain. However, I felt that his strength was still somewhat lacking. His joining might only serve to get him killed. But then a month ago, the Skyfiend, Palatial Lord Kuishi, attempted to assassinate Qin Yun. Qin Yun managed to resist her most powerful strike, so now I'm certain that he has sufficient strength to help me."

    "Palatial Lord Kuishi attempted to assassinate Qin Yun?" Sect Master Jade Tripod and the Dao Protector were alarmed.

    "Yes. Very few people know of this. It has just only begun to spread in the Three Realms. I also just learned of it," said the white-browed immortal. "I wish to invite such a powerful expert to help me in my battle with the Skyfiends! But even if he abhors evil, inviting him will not be a trivial matter. I know that his son, Meng Huan, is in your sect. Therefore, I'm requesting you to invite him on my behalf. Later, I'll discuss it in detail with him."

    Since his son was in Jade Tripod Sect, if Sect Master Jade Tripod and the Dao Protector were to invite him... Qin Yun would definitely have to at least give them face. It would be much easier to negotiate in a face-to-face conversation.

    "If the both of you are willing to help me, I will be indebted to you," said the white-browed immortal.

    "Alright. I'll invite him now." Sect Master Jade Tripod nodded.

    ...

    Qin Yun and Yi Xiao rode on a cloud as they flew high in the sky, looking down upon the beautiful scenery of the vast lands.

    The Effulgent Great World was huge. Many areas were scenic and pretty, like they were works of a miraculous architect.

    "How beautiful it is. Brother Yun, look at the plains below. There are several canyons in the middle of the plains. At a glance, they look like nine fairies," marveled Yi Xiao as she looked down.

    "Haha, there are even more beautiful places. The ghostly lake ahead is what I describe as fantastic and strange," Qin Yun said casually as he drank from a alcohol calabash. His Intrinsic Flying Sword had been nurtured to its limits for the time being. Without more Water of the First Essence, or other new Connate Wonders, there was no way for him to continue enhancing his sword. Qin Yun accompanied his wife jaunting, but of course, while he enjoyed the natural sights, he was frequently inferring and thinking about his sword arts.

    "Oh?" Qin Yun was somewhat astonished as ripples opened up in the void. On the other end of the void was the side of a lotus pool. There were three immortals there.

    "Sect Master Jade Tripod, Dao Protector." Qin Yun recognized them at a glance. "This white-browed immortal is Yang Song?"

    "Sword Immortal Qin," greeted Sect Master Jade Tripod with a smile. "Are you also now in the Effulgent Great World?"

    "I'm accompanying my wife for a leisurely trip. The scenery of the Effulgent Great World is indeed spectacular," said Qin Yun with a smile. "Sect Master Jade Tripod, is there a reason why you are looking for me?"

    "I have something that requires your help. Sword Immortal Qin, might I trouble you to come to my Jade Tripod Sect? We can discuss it in detail," said Sect Master Jade Tripod.

    Qin Yun glanced at Yi Xiao.

    Yi Xiao said via a voice transmission, "Let's go. Didn't we agree to meet that son of yours in the Effulgent Great World?"

    The corners of Qin Yun's eyes twitched slightly.

    However, a gentleman had to be open and poised. What was there to fear?

    "Alright, we will be there in a while." Qin Yun nodded.

    The void rift closed.

    "Let's go," said Yi Xiao in anticipation.

    "You really are eager." Qin Yun held his wife's hand. "Let's go!"

    They tore through the void.

    Every surge through the void covered a hundred thousand kilometers. They repeated this a few times before arriving at a contiguous palatial complex.

    The Jade Tripod Sect was built on a group of mountains. It was truly an immortal sect. It was filled with array formations, and extraordinary in scale. There were a portion of palaces at the mountain peaks that had clouds swirling around them, making them indiscernible to the naked eye.

    "Whoosh." Qin Yun flew over with his wife.

    He was an outsider, so it was not polite for him to barge through the Jade Tripod Sect's array.

    As he flew, the clouds parted. A group of immortals came to receive him. Leading them was the white-browed immortal, Sect Master Jade Tripod, and the Dao Protector.

    "Sword Immortal Qin," greeted Sect Master Jade Tripod with a smile.

    "Greetings, Sword Immortal Qin. I'm Yang Song," said the white-browed immortal.

    "Greetings, everyone." Qin Yun said politely. Although he had a good relationship with the Jade Tripod Sect due to his son, he was still a Green Touring Palace disciple. The ones in front of him were from the Jade Void Palace. It was only with the rise of the fiendish way that the three Daoist lineages came to be on better terms. At the very least, they maintained a superficial show of unity.

    Sect Master Jade Tripod and company invited Qin Yun to enter the sect. As for the fifth or sixth firmament Skyimmortals behind them, none of them dared to say a word.

    The cultivation world was as such.

    Strength represented one's standing. Palatial Lord Kuishi's battle with Qin Yun was temporarily still a secret. Very few people knew of it, but news of Qin Yun repressing Bear Mountain... was something already known in the Effulgent dominion. As such, his prowess made him stronger than Sect Master Jade Tripod or the Dao Protector. However, the Jade Tripod Sect's backer was even more powerful. There could be seniors descending upon their world to preside over the sect. Sect Master Jade Tripod and Dao Protector were usually sufficient at dealing with most of the ordinary trivialities.

    ...

    Jade Tripod Sect's Ashen Azure Peak.

    There were many Skyimmortals at Ashen Azure Peak.

    "Look, who is Sect Master receiving?" The Skyimmortals looked over. If the fifth or sixth firmament Skyimmortals in the sect barely had the right to follow from behind, these ordinary Skyimmortals did not even have the right to come close. A huge sect followed strict rules like these.

    "Sect Master and Dao Protector. That is Uncle-Grandmaster Yang, isn't that it? The person they are welcoming... seems to be at the Essence Soul realm?"

    "That's Sword Immortal Qin! I've seen his portrait before!" said a Skyimmortal immediately. "He is the only person apart from the Grand Supreme Dao Ancestor to create a new sword immortal lineage in the Three Realms. He only took several decades to cultivate, but he repressed Demon King Bear Mountain! Ordinary ninth firmament Skyimmortals are not even capable of withstanding one strike of his."

    These Skyimmortals looked on in astonishment and envy.

    Having a Dao Ancestor as his master?

    Repressing Demon King Bear Mountain? This was something they yearned for. That was a strength that even their sect master could not come close to.

    "Sword Immortal Qin?" Meng Huan walked out of a cave. He looked outside and saw a group of immortals surrounding Qin Yun and Yi Xiao a distance away.

    He had heard of people talking about Sword Immortal Qin from inside the cave and could naturally not resist coming out.

    "There's no mistake about it. It's my father." Meng Huan naturally recognized at a glance.

    "Junior Brother Meng Huan, why are you out here?" berated a Skyimmortal senior brother. "Aren't you going back in?"

    "You usually abide by the rules. Why are you acting so impudently today?" Another senior brother frowned. "Your duty is to guard the dungeons. You are not to leave at all. If the prisoners inside the dungeon escape, can you shoulder that responsibility?"

    Meng Huan looked at the distant Qin Yun and Yi Xiao flying into a cloud while being escorted by a huge crowd. That was where the sect master's cave abode was.

    "I'll be going back in." Meng Huan did not argue. He walked back into the cave's deep passage and continued watching the dungeons.
