After hearing Chufeng’s words, Sumei was dumbfounded. She was deeply attracted towards Chufeng, attracted to that type of grandeur. A strange feeling was created. It was her feeling that Chufeng was not lying and he could really do everything that he said.
“Little Mei, I know you won’t be like Situyu and the others, but the truth is that I did offend Gong Luyun. So, I don’t want to spread my trouble to you.” Suddenly, Chufeng spoke.
“Chufeng, what do you mean? The things that happened originated from me. If it wasn’t for me…You would have never done those things. Because of me, you suffered from such a huge grievance. If I left you, would I even be a person?”
“Indeed, Gong Luyun does have quite some influence in the core zone. But I, Sumei, am not afraid of him. Not only inside of the Green Dragon School, even outside, I am not afraid of him either.” Sumei firmly said.
Seeing Sumei act like that, Chufeng really did not know what to do. Was Sumei afraid of Gong Luyun? Of course she was. After all, in the core zone, it was Gong Luyun’s world. Even her elder sister, Surou, might not be able to beat Gong Luyun.
But perhaps because she was afraid could she say those words so firmly. Chufeng could not bear to convince her otherwise because he did not want to betray Sumei’s kind feelings.
“Fine, I really don’t know what to do with you. Since it’s like this, come with me to the martial skill building and let’s take a look.”
“Sure. I was just thinking of cultivating rank 5 skills.”
At that instant, Sumei became that lively and cheerful girl as she ran out while jumping and bouncing. Chufeng also followed up along the road.
The core zone was extremely big but there were only 2000 disciples or so within it. So, after things happened, news spread extremely quickly. For example, the arranged battle between Chufeng and Gong Luyun spread throughout the core zone in a short amount of time.
In addition, Chufeng’s appearance and name was already hung on the announcement boards. So, many people had an impression of Chufeng and on the road towards the martial skill building, almost all the people that saw Chufeng pointed at him and endlessly discussed.
Chufeng already expected that situation so he did not pay any attention to it. Sumei was the same and the two of them talked and laughed as they entered the martial skill building and started to choose the martial skills they wanted.
Although the martial skill building in the core zone was a lot smaller than the one in the inner court as it only had one floor, it was very refined. The worst skills were only rank 3 skills and the best were rank 5 skills.
Of course, other than martial skills, there were even mysterious techniques. But, they were only beginning level mysterious techniques. To the two of them who cultivated in the Breathing Techniques, they were not that useful so their main goal was to choose a martial skill book.
“Rank 5 martial skill, Bow of Hundred Transformations. What a strange name.”
After circling around, Chufeng was attracted towards a book called the Bow of Hundred Transformations. He couldn’t help but flip through it, and as he looked, Chufeng liked it even more.
It was a type of condensation martial skill and the controlling difficulty towards spiritual energy was extremely high. It expelled spiritual energy out of the body and condensed it into weapons for battle. According to what one liked, they could condense it to various shapes.
Knives, spears, swords, halberds, hatchets, battleaxes, hooks, pitchforks, tridents, sticks, lances, clubs, whips, truncheon, hammers, claws. All sorts of weapon shapes could be condensed and formed. The book was even equipped with the attacking sequences of the weapons.
But the hardest to condense was the bow. If the bow was condensed and created, it could use spiritual energy as the arrows and shoot them for over 10 miles. The speed was extremely fast and almost no one could dodge it. It was an extremely impressive method.
So, that was why the Bow of Hundred Transformations, within the rank 5 skills, could be counted as a first-class martial skill. Naturally, the cultivation difficulty was very high as well.
“This one.” After finalizing it, Chufeng took the book and registered it. After waiting for Sumei to choose a martial skill, the two of them walked out of the martial skill building.
But the instant that they walked out of the martial skill building, over 20 core disciples were gathered there. All of the faces of the core disciples were not kind and at that moment, they already surrounded the two people and blocked their escape.
“What are you doing?” Seeing the core disciples that surrounded them, Sumei frowned and loudly questioned.
She intentionally spoke louder. After all, they were still at the entrance of the martial skill building. So, she wanted to draw the martial skill building elder out and get his help.
But it was in vain. The elder clearly heard Sumei’s yell yet completely ignored her. On the other hand, the disciples within the martial skill building ran out and started observing.
“You are Sumei, Surou’s younger sister right?” One of the disciples went up and asked.
“Is there a problem?” Sumei’s face was icy cold.
“Hoho, I hear that you had medium-rank talent and that’s already quite rare even within the core zone. With your talent, I’m sure that in the future, your name could be seen on the Green Dragon Leaderboard.”
“But, with your talent, why are you together with this guy? There’s nothing good about walking so close to him.” Another male disciple laughed and said.
“I stay together with whoever I wish to. This is my own matter and it has nothing to do with any of you.” Sumei coldly said.
“Ho. Sumei, I was just advising you with a kind heart but I never would have thought that you would be so ungrateful. Since it has come to this, I’ll say the truth. Chufeng offended senior Gong and he can’t continue going on this way in the core zone.”
“Today, we’re here give this arrogant brat a lesson for senior Gong. I hope that you stay a bit farther away from him or else you can’t blame us for harming you.” That male disciple’s face also became darker and colder.
“You’re giving me a lesson to help Gong Luyun, or are you using that as an excuse to give me a lesson so that Gong Luyun would have a better impression on you?”
“Trash are indeed trash. Perhaps only all of you could think of that method just to lick Gong Luyun’s boots. But, I’m afraid that you won’t even be able to do that.” Just at that time, Chufeng suddenly coldly smiled. The gazes that he casted towards the crowd was full of disdain and contempt.
Although the group of people were not weak, they were not strong either. They only had the strength of the 8th and 9th level of the Spirit realm. Within the inner court, they would absolutely be counted as the tip, but within the core zone, they were existences at the bottom.
So, Chufeng could guess the reason why they were looking for trouble. Without a doubt, they were trying to use this to attract Gong Luyun’s attention and to gain better impressions. However, with their strength, Chufeng did not even put them in his eyes.
