Fighting For A Disciple (4)
Translator:EndlessFantasy TranslationEditor:EndlessFantasy Translation
It was usually the case that a student would be desperate to find a teacher who would take them under their wing, but that was the first time someone looked for a teacher with terms and conditions.
Qing Luo was distraught! She felt it was very unfair! She remembered that she had put in a lot of effort and gone through many examinations when she tried to enter the clan. Hence, she began to blast Gu Xijiu verbally. “Ren Chongsheng, who do you think you are? How can you talk to my master this way? Do you know how many people wish to be his disciple? How dare you propose terms and conditions for being my master’s disciple? Master, this girl is too arrogant; don’t take her…”
“Qing Luo, keep silent!” Spiritual Master Yuhang interrupted Qing Luo. He turned to Gu Xijiu and asked, “What conditions do you have?”
“Firstly, I can be your disciple, but I want the greeting ritual to be waived. Secondly, I want my freedom so that I can come and leave whenever I want; you should not interfere with this. Lastly, I want to be your most senior disciple so that I can help you to guide your juniors.”
Gu Xijiu’s conditions were considered harsh. Even before Spiritual Master Yuhang could say anything, Qing Luo already yelled at Gu Xijiu. “Who do you think you are? We will only recognize our eldest brother as our senior; no one else can replace him!”
Gu Xijiu did not bother with her as she was a Mighty Immortal who was more than 200 years old; she would not take the words of a young girl too personally.
She only looked at Spiritual Master Yuhang and asked, “Deal?”
Spiritual Master Yuhang paused and said frankly, “I can promise you the first two conditions; however, the strongest is always the leader. You can be their leader and guide them on behalf of me without hurting them if you manage to defeat Nianmo.”
It was entirely out of Qing Luo’s expectation that her master agreed on such harsh terms! She even suspected that her master’s brain had gone haywire!
She shouted, “I’ll never obey you!”
Gu Xijiu was finally willing to look at her. “Don’t worry; I’m not interested in guiding you.” She was not a saint and not interested in teaching a stubborn person. In fact, she only wanted to be Shen Nianmo’s guide, and the rest would just be favors.
Qing Luo was speechless; however, she was not stupid. “Ren Chongsheng, you just want to control my eldest brother, don’t you?”
“Hehe! You are smart this time!” Gu Xijiu complimented her and looked at Spiritual Master Yuhang. “So I assume you agree with all the terms?”
Spiritual Master Yuhang looked at Shen Nianmo. He calmly said, “She can be the boss if she can defeat me one year later. Meanwhile, she does not need to address me as Eldest Senior, and I will not address her as my senior either. We will call each other by name.”
Spiritual Master Yuhang immediately looked at Gu Xijiu. “Sounds fair, what do you think?”
In fact, Gu Xijiu did not have a strong interest in the hierarchy; she was just trying to find an excuse to teach Shen Nianmo. She was certain that Shen Nianmo would try his best to practice because of this incident, that was her main objective. Therefore, she happily agreed, “Sure, I’ll call him Nianmo from now onward.”
“Fuyi!” Shen Nianmo corrected her. “You must call me Fuyi!” Otherwise, he felt that she was calling a little boy.
‘Fine, Fuyi.” Gu Xijiu felt the name was lovely, but it also made her feel a little depressed.
