Time proceeded and with a blink, several days passed. In those few days, Chufeng did not even take a step outside. Other than studying the 3rd style of the Three Thunder Styles, he was refining spiritual medicine.
In a short few days, Chufeng went from a wealthy person to a poor person with nothing. But, luckily, his dantian was filled up quite a bit, and with his estimations, he could breakthrough once more after another Spiritual Bead.
But, the Spiritual Medicine Hunt only happened once a year and the Spiritual Bead was a top quality spiritual medicine. If he didn’t rely on Sumei, how could Chufeng have picked up such a deal? So he also knew that wanting to breakthrough again was not easy.
Without him feeling it, the day of the Chu family gathering also arrived. On that day, 3 familiar people came and visited.
“Chuyue, Chuxue, Chuwei?”
Chufeng was a bit caught off guard when he saw the 3 people outside. If wasn’t that strange for Chuyue to come visit. But, he never would have thought that Chuxue and Chuwei could come as well.
“Chufeng, the gathering is almost here. Come with us and we can return together.” Chuyue smiled and said.
“Oh?” Chufeng looked at Chuwei and Chuxue with a bit of hesitation.
“Chufeng, let’s go back together. Everyone’s waiting for you!” Chuxue also spoke, and other than sincere in her eyes there was also deep regret.
“Chufeng, we may have misunderstood some things, but in the end, we are still family. I hope that you don’t put the past in your heart.” Chuwei was also chuckling and there were some hints of admitting his errors in his tone.
Chufeng thought for a while, but still said, “That’s fine.”
Chufeng was not a narrow-minded person, or else he wouldn’t have saved Chuxue that day. In any case, he was also planning to return to the Chu family, so it wasn’t bad to be able to chat with Chuyue along the road.
They arrived at the gate of the Green Dragon School, and indeed, the Chu family members were there waiting for Chufeng. As they looked at Chufeng, their gazes did not contain the past enmity. Rather, there was a bit more respect, and other than the respect there was also some embarrassment and some shame.
Although it was not confirmed, many people knew in their hearts that Chufeng was likely the fierce person that slaughtered the 40 Fierce Beasts. He also got the recognition of the Wings Alliance, so how could they dare to offend Chufeng when he was like this?
Chufeng didn’t think too much about their change. After all, in Chufeng’s heart, he viewed himself as a member of the Chu family. To get along with his family was naturally something that he yearned for.
But he also knew that it was his strength that caused their change in attitude. But why did that matter? After all, the world is as such. Even if it was family, seniors and juniors were divided by strength.
In the middle area of the Green Province, there was a small town that was built against a mountain, and it was called the Mountain Town. The Chu family was the overlord of the Mountain Town, as they had control over the circumference of dozens of miles of land and resources.
[TN: Technically, the town is translated into Leaning Mountain Town, but I just shorted it for the sake of convenience.]
The imposing gates of the Chu family were in front of their eyes. Fast horses arrived, and several impressive, young males and females jumped down. They were Chufeng and the others from the Green Dragon School.
“Look, the young masters from the Chu family have returned.”
“Purple-coloured gowns. Those are the symbols of the inner court disciples of the Green Dragon School right? Impressive. They are indeed from the Chu family.”
“That’s right. Talent is the most important thing on the road of martial cultivation. Old Yang, the boss of the east side of the town used up all his fortune to get his grandson into the Green Dragon School. But after entering for a full 10 years, he was only at the 1st level for his martial cultivation. It is simply incomparable to the Chu family’s young masters.”
“That may not be so. I hear that there’s a person called Chufeng in the Chu family, and even today he’s still an outer court disciple. Because he had no face to see anyone, he didn’t return home in many years.”
“Then you don’t know the full story. Although that Chufeng has the status of a young master, he is not technically part of the Chu family. He was picked up by Chuyuan, so it’s normal even if his talent isn’t equal to the other young masters.”
“Shh, you can’t randomly talk about that, or else you’ll have bad luck if you let Chuyuan hear that.”
The arrival of Chufeng and the others attracted countless observers from the town’s citizens. To them who had nothing to do with martial cultivation, anyone who cultivated were their idol.
“Young masters, you’ve returned.”
After entering the courtyard, the servants of the Chu family all surrounded them, and at the same time, it attracted many of the Chu family’s younger generations.
There were a lot of young people in the Chu family, but they all entered all different types of schools. So, when they knew that the people from the Green Dragon School returned, all the other people from the other schools wanted to see what point Chuwei, Chuyue and the others reached.
“Oh? Isn’t this Chufeng? You’ve finally entered the inner court for the Green Dragon School?”
A sharp, unkind voice could be heard, and several young males and females walked over. The leading person was a handsome young man.
He was called Chuxun, and he was the disciple of the second-rate Thousand Wind School. He was 18 years old this year and he had the cultivation of the 5th level of the Spirit realm. Same as most of the Chu family members, he had also been hostile towards Chufeng since he was small.
“If I remember correctly, you also entered the Thousand Wind School inner court at the age of 15 right?” Chufeng lightly smiled and said.
“Hmph, you are correct, but after entering the inner court for a short 3 years I reached the 5th level of the Spirit realm. Do you think you can even compare to me?”
“Hehe. Entered the Thousand Wind School at the age of 10, but only stepped into the 5th level of the Spirit realm at the age of 18. Such slow improvement, yet displaying such arrogance. Can’t you be any better?”
“You’re looking down on me? Do you want to spar a bit?” Chuxun’s face was very ugly, and he was really impatient to give Chufeng a lesson.
“You aren’t even fit to spar with me.” Chufeng shot him a glance of disdain and walked deeper into the Chu residence.
“Damn! Who gave him that confidence and dared to be so arrogant? He better not participate in the family’s competition or else I would beat him to death.” Looking at Chufeng’s back, Chuxun gritted his teeth in anger.
“Chuxun, I advise that you don’t go and anger Chufeng.” Just at that time, the brothers Chucheng and Chuzhen walked over.
“What is your meaning? You think that I can’t beat him?” Chuxun got even more angry.
Seeing that he was so stubborn, Chucheng and Chuzhen were too lazy to pay attention to him and they went towards their own residence.
“Two pieces of garbage. How did they become so spiritless after one year?” Chuxun glared at the two with disdain.
“The two of them are very correct. As your elder brother, I will also give you a few words of advice. That Chufeng isn’t as weak as you think. I won’t say the specifics, so understand it as you wish.” Chuwei also went up and patted Chuxun’s shoulders.
After that, Chuyue, Chuxue, Chugao and the others also said some words with Chuxun. Although it was very hidden, there were strong warning messages.
“These people. Have they gone stupid in the Green Dragon School? No need to speak about Chuyue, but why are Chuwei and the others so cowardly?” Looking at the leaving backs of Chuwei and the others, Chuxun was a bit lost.
“That’s right. Didn’t Chuwei and the Cheng Zhen brothers annoy Chufeng the most? And also that Chuxue. What happened to them?” At the same time, the people behind Chuxun had confusion on their faces.
They could not understand. Chuwei and the others were always humiliating Chufeng without restraint last year. They left nothing behind and declared Chufeng’s ugly things in the Green Dragon School. Why did it seem that all of them completely changed?
