    Qin Yun and Pristine Void turned their heads to look at the source of the voice. As for the disciples of Purple Cave, they looked over in displeasure.

    How dare a mortal speak when two mighty figures were meeting?

    "Senior." The youth knelt down and hurriedly said. "Please take me in as a disciple. You can request me to do anything. Please give me a chance..."

    Qin Yun did a simple inference.

    Inference of the billions of beings in the Great Chang world's past took a toll on him, but to infer a youth at the Connate Golden Core realm? It only took a mere thought for him to tell everything the youth had experienced since he was born. He could even infer all the possibilities the youth would encounter in the future.

    "What a din." Pristine Void frowned and flicked his sleeve, sending the youth flying backward involuntarily. He came to a stop only when he flew to the corner outside the entrance.

    The moment the youth landed, he immediately knelt down. Just as he was about to continue speaking, he realized he could not produce any sound.

    "Brother Qin, let's head in." Pristine Void smiled as he continued leading Qin Yun in.

    The youth burned with anxiety as he tried to speak; yet, he could not produce any voice. His eyes were filled with anxiety.

    Qin Yun gave the youth a glance and smiled before entering the cave abode with Pristine Void. The extremely strong disciples immediately followed. There were also the disciples in charge of closing the main door! The cave abode's main door was usually closed. Only the side doors were used in day-to-day activities. For instance, the Dao Child went in and out by the side doors.

    "Punk, how audacious you are to dare interrupt Sword Immortal Qin and my master." A relatively weak in-name disciple who was a third firmament Skyimmortal berated angrily.

    "It's only because Sword Immortal Qin and Master have a good temper that you were not smacked to death with a single strike."

    The in-name disciples who were lower in stature unleashed a tirade before returning to the cave abode.

    The Dao Child could not help but follow in to listen carefully. As a Dao Child, he did not know of Sword Immortal Qin's accolades.

    "Young Master, are you alright?" The maidservant immediately ran over.

    Kneeling there, the youth's eyes were bright as he whispered, "I'm fine. Perfect Sovereign enjoys an esteemed stature. Although he brushed me away, he did not injure me! Did you see it? When I was begging, Senior Qin actually smiled at me before entering the cave abode."

    The maidservant was taken aback as she slowly nodded. "Yes, that Senior Qin did smile at you."

    "I must have caught Senior Qin's fancy," whispered the youth. "Perhaps, he might take me in as a disciple when he comes out."

    However, the maidservant was somewhat ambivalent and uncertain.

    A smile?

    Her young master had caught his fancy?

    Soon.

    The Dao Child walked out from a side door.

    "Dao Brother, Dao Brother. Tell me what kind of person Senior Qin is," said the kneeling youth.

    The Dao Child walked over and said in excitement. "He's now an extremely famous person in all of the Three Realms. He wiped out countless fiends from the twenty-six dominions of the Three Realms! The Fiend Ancestor even appeared in person but failed to stop him. Furthermore, he is the disciple of the Heavenly Lord of Numinous Treasure. He was even bestowed a Connate Cardinal treasure, the Qingping Sword."

    "He's also a mighty figure?" The kneeling youth was alarmed.

    "What do you mean 'also a mighty figure?' He has killed quite a number that were at the strength of a mighty figure." The Dao Child said with a beaming countenance, "He's the strongest Itinerant Immortal of the Three Realms! It is unfortunate, however, that he's an Itinerant Immortal."

    "He has killed several mighty figure-leveled fiends?" The youth turned even more excited. That was good. Coming under the tutelage of such a master was promising.

    "Itinerant Immortal?" The youth was puzzled. "I heard that there's no hope in Itinerant Immortal cultivation. Why did this senior choose to become a Itinerant Immortal? Was what I knew wrong?"

    The Dao Child curled his lips. "What you know is right. Itinerant Immortals barely live over ten thousand years. That's why you shouldn't count on Sword Immortal Qin. Although he is immensely powerful, he will need to focus on cultivation to break through the limits of Itinerant Immortals. He wouldn't have time to take you in as a disciple."

    "Ah!"

    The youth was taken aback.

    "Stop dreaming. If I were you, I would quickly leave the mountain and stop wasting time here," said the Dao Child as he continued sweeping the grounds.

    "No time for disciples?" The youth was stunned before he gently shook his head. "But he clearly smiled at me? There must be something deeper..."

    "He's mad!"

    The Dao Child curled his lips.

    ******

    Inside Purple Cave, Qin Yun and Pristine Void sat facing each other in a tea room. They were sipping tea which the Perfect Sovereign had made himself.

    The tea aroma was faint, but it filled the room.

    The two discussed Qin Yun's past exploits of sweeping across the twenty-six dominions.

    "You are lauding me. Thank you, Dao Brother Pristine Void," said Qin Yun.

    "There's nothing exaggerated in what I said. The Fiend Ancestor was willing to pay such an immense price for the countless fiend worlds in the twenty-six dominions. You probably could have extorted two or three Connate Pinnacle Numinous treasures from him," said Pristine Void with a smile. "And you were be able to resist the Fiend Ancestor's enticement. Few mighty figures in the Three Realms are capable of doing so."

    Qin Yun laughed.

    The Fiend Ancestor had indeed offered him many deals. He was allowed to request any treasures! He was also tempted with guaranteed reincarnation and the secret of his homeworld.

    "Haha." Qin Yun did not continue. Instead, he looked out and smiled. "If I didn't make a mistake, that kneeling youth outside is fated with you. Why do you continue to have him kneel there?"

    Pristine Void stroked his beard and smiled. "Brother Qin, your inference techniques are quite impressive. We do share a tied fate, but it isn't the right time. He still needs to leave the mountain to experience three life-and-death calamities before he can be recruited! Now, all he has on his mind is revenge. His Dao heart isn't firm enough. Even if he were to become my disciple, what would he amount to?"

    "Three life-and-death calamities?" Qin Yun nodded slightly. "It's said that the Jade Void lineage is strict on accepting disciples. It's indeed as the rumors say."

    "Ordinary in-name disciples can be taken in, but he is someone who will become my personal disciple. I naturally cannot be casual about it," said Pristine Void with a smile.

    "What if he dies during his calamities?" asked Qin Yun.

    "Then, I'll receive him after he undergoes Samsara. He can hone his Dao heart in his next life. If he reaches the requirements, he will become a disciple of mine," said Pristine Void. "If he still can't do so in three incarnations, that will be the end of our shared fate."

    Qin Yun nodded.

    He naturally could not interfere in someone's disciple recruitment process. Furthermore, he only had ten thousand plus years for himself. He had no time to waste on teaching disciples. Even his children were only given simple guidance, allowing them to hone themselves independently.

    "By the way," Pristine Void said with a smile. "Is there a reason you've come to my humble abode? Feel free to say so. I'll definitely help you if it's possible."

    "To be honest, I do have a request," said Qin Yun.

    Pristine Void nodded slightly as he listened carefully.

    "I require the Connate Numinous treasure, the Eighteen Flying Stars," said Qin Yun. "Dao Brother Pristine Void, I hope you would be able to part with it."

    "The Eighteen Flying Stars?" Pristine Void frowned slightly. "That is a Connate Numinous treasure refined by the Ancient Heavenly Courts. It can form domains to trap and kill enemies. It's an extremely powerful and multi-faceted Connate Numinous treasure which I like a lot."

    It was the truth.

    As one of the famous twelve Golden Immortals of the Jade Void Palace, Perfect Sovereign Pristine Void Virtuous was one of the rare ones who were adept at artifact refinement. He had quite a number of Connate Numinous treasures which he had bestowed to his disciples.

    However, he had always kept the Eighteen Flying Stars with him. Having it form a domain to fight enemies was advantageous. It was also good for trapping enemies. As for killing enemies and life preservation, he had even more powerful Connate Numinous treasures.

    "Please raise your conditions," said Qin Yun.

    Pristine Void thought for a moment before saying, "This Eighteen Flying Stars' most important aspect is the domain it can form. Once the domain forms, I hold a terrain advantage! I do not have a second domain-type Connate Numinous treasure. Therefore, if you want to take away my Eighteen Flying Stars... you will have to give me the Great Yin Disk."

    "Of course." Yi Yun nodded.

    The Eighteen Flying Stars was a lot more valuable than the Great Yin Disk.

    "The Great Yin Disk is able to form domains, but the Eighteen Flying Stars is more rounded and a lot more valuable," said Pristine Void. "If you wish to make the exchange, you will have to give me the pair of arms of Star Destruction in addition to the Great Yin Disk."

    Pristine Void's eyes were somewhat glowing. "If you are willing to make that exchange, it's a deal!"

    Qin Yun hesitated for a moment.

    Star Destruction...

    As a Connate Godfiend and a member of the spirit-devouring lineage, he had deliberately stayed at the thresholds of the Skyfiend realm, allowing him to devour countless beings in a Small World. The essence of his cultivation was his pair of arms! It was also the most valuable part of Star Destruction. They were a lot more valuable than the Great Yin Disk or the Sky Scraping Heaven Sealing Chain. They were probably worth half a Connate Pinnacle Numinous treasure.

    Qin Yun nodded after some thought. "Alright, I agree. Thank you, Dao Brother Pristine Void."

    "Haha, I should be the one thanking you, Brother Qin." Pristine Void revealed a look of glee.
