Zheng Rulai was fuming!
Boundless Sky Palace was his goal for entering Boundless Taixu. Furthermore, he did not feel that there was any difficulty in entering Boundless Sky Palace this time.
In his opinion, it was really simple for him to obtain a Sky Seal Sky Plate. Although there were not many Sky Seal Sky Plates available, there was absolutely no shortage for him.
However, his overconfidence in himself made him suffer, and the one who caused this mishap was Yuan Venerate Kongjing, the leader of the Dakongfan Sect.
Compared to Zheng Rulais status in the Taixu Sect, Yuan Venerate Kongjings name wasnt that well-known. It could even be considered relatively unknown. However, this time, Yuan Venerate Kongjing had actually made Zheng Rulai suffer.
This wasnt because Zheng Rulais cultivation wasnt as good as Yuan Venerate Kongjings cultivation. It was hard to decide which martialist was stronger by comparing their cultivation. After all, Zheng Rulai had been dedicatedly nurtured by the Taixu Sect and was no pushover.
The reason wasnt only that Yuan Venerate Kongjing had a very good helper known as Yuan Venerate Kongwu, who was acclaimed to be unrivaled in speed within the Dakongfan Sect, but also because Yuan Venerate Kongjing was willing to splurge and pay to bring in many lone martialists comparable to the ones from the Sacred Emperor Palace.
Their purpose was obviously to prevent Zheng Rulai from entering Boundless Sky Palace.
Zheng Rulai was very prideful and arrogant. In the beginning, he hadnt thought highly of these lone martialists, but he had realized that he had made a fatal mistake when a Sky Seal Jade Plate had been taken from him.
Unfortunately, it was already too late by the time he realized this!
"How many Sky Seal Jade Plates have you got?" Zheng Rulai asked Yuan Venerate Huang Yue unhappily.
Although Yuan Venerate Huang Yue knew what Zheng Rulai was going to do next, she still answered honestly, "Senior Brother Zheng, we have two!"
The two Sky Seal Jade Plates were fewer than the six or seven pieces the Taixu Sect had been able to obtain in the past. Although Zheng Rulai was disappointed, he also could not blame Yuan Venerate Huang Yue and her party.
After all, he hadnt even obtained a single piece by himself.
The other Taixu Sect core disciple holding on to a Sky Seal Jade Plate became extremely gloomy. Zheng Rulai hadnt gotten any so they should at least contribute a Sky Seal Jade Plate.
Whose Sky Seal Jade Plate was the most suitable?
Definitely not the one belonging to Yuan Venerate Huang Yue! After all, Yuan Venerate Huang Yue had much stronger cultivation than him and she even had many formidable supporters.
It would be difficult even for Zheng Rulai to take away her opportunity.
Zheng Rulai turned toward this core disciple in a very natural manner. Eventually, the core disciple gritted his teeth and said, "Since Senior Brother does not have a Sky Seal Jade Plate, I will give this piece to Senior Brother."
It had to be known that Zheng Rulai was also a man of great dignity. He was really unwilling to take this opportunity from this junior brother.
However, he was more reluctant to give up the opportunity to enter Boundless Sky Palace just like this. After all, this concerned his future achievements.
As he hesitated, a man beside him said, "Senior Brother Zheng, you should not refuse."
"Junior Brother Qin would most likely be killed by the scumbags from the Dakongfan Sect and get left there without obtaining anything if we were to allow him to enter."
"Senior Brother, if you were to go in, even Kongjing would not dare to provoke you! You might even obtain an opportunity greater than Kongjing and compensate Junior Brother Qin adequately afterward."
Junior Brother Qin became even more sullen when he heard this but he also did not dare refuse. Hence, he muttered, "Senior Brother Li is right. Senior Brother Rulai, please do not decline."
Only then did Zheng Rulai take the Sky Seal Jade Plate he was handed. Meanwhile, the others following behind Zheng Rulai turned to look at Yuan Venerate Huang Yue.
In the past, they definitely would not have dared to even think about taking advantage of Yuan Venerate Huang Yue. However, given the opportunities before their very eyes, it was unavoidable that they would be tempted. Although Yuan Venerate Huang Yue was no pushover, it was necessary sometimes to provoke others for ones own benefit.
Yuan Venerate Huang Yue also noticed the shifty glances shot at her. However, she wasnt Junior Brother Qin, so making her hand over her jade plate would be wishful thinking!
She ignored the looks of these people and acted as if she couldnt be provoked. However, although her method might have worked in the past, things were different now.
The man addressed as Senior Brother Li coughed softly and said, "This trip to Boundless Taixu concerns the Taixu Sects reputation. While we were outside Boundless Sky Palace, we did not pay attention to the scheme of Yuan Venerate Kongjing and we suffered a huge loss."
"At times like this, we have to send our strongest forces into Boundless Sky Palace. I felt very good when Junior Brother Qin gave the Sky Seal Jade Plate to Brother Zheng just now."
He then turned to Yuan Venerate Huang Yue and asked, "Junior Sister Huang Yue, do you think what I just said is right?"
Yuan Venerate Huang Yue was furious. This guy was clearly using righteousness as an excuse to take her Sky Seal Jade Plate. He was clearly robbing her, so why was there a need to praise himself in such a high-sounding way?
She was not like Junior Brother Qin, so upon hearing what he said, she smiled faintly. "I totally agree with what Senior Brother Li said. I will definitely fulfill my responsibility and do my best with this Sky Seal Jade Plate!"
Senior Brother Li started fuming when he received this reply.
He eyed Yuan Venerate Huang Yue and said, "Yuan Venerate Huang Yue, do you really think that you are the strongest among us?"
"Even if I am not the strongest among us, Senior Brother Li is not the strongest amongst us after Brother Zheng either." Yuan Venerate Huang Yue knew that she wasnt stronger than Senior Brother Li so she simply changed the topic.
Zheng Rulai did not speak. Although he knew that it would not be good for their team if this continued, he had just taken something that wasnt his so it was best not to further suppress others. After all, this wasnt an honorable move and he still couldnt bear to act righteously after taking things that belonged to others by force.
However, Zheng Rulai still valued Senior Brother Li more than Yuan Venerate Huang Yue, as Senior Brother Li had been able to assist him more when theyd entered Boundless Sky Palace.
"Junior Sister, you said that I am not the strongest among us. Do you think there is anyone better than me among the other Junior Brothers?" Senior Brother Li smirked as he replied sardonically.
He did not glance at the other disciples, but these words werent overly offensive either.
"Im not as strong as Senior Brother Li," an honest-looking man who ranked third in terms of cultivation among the disciples said softly.
He was inferior to Senior Brother Li, so he had chosen to take a step backward when Senior Brother Li had mentioned taking Yuan Venerate Huang Yues Sky Seal Jade Plate. Since Yuan Venerate Huang Yue wanted to cause trouble, he obviously had to distance himself.
Senior Brother Li was very satisfied, but what delighted him was that several other Junior Brothers also stepped forward and said that they werent as good as him.
Senior Brother Li glanced at those who offered to withdraw and smirked. "Junior Sister, what else do you have to say?"
Luo Yunyang could sense Yuan Venerate Huang Yue glancing over. He did not want to participate in such a dispute, but Yuan Venerate Huang Yue was obviously trying to drag him in.
"Junior Brother Yunyang is better than you." Yuan Venerate Huang Yue glanced at Luo Yunyang and spoke firmly.
"Ha ha ha!" Senior Brother Li guffawed as he pointed at Luo Yunyang and said, "Junior Sister Huang Yue, if you said you were better than me, I might still take some time to think about it. But you are saying that Junior Brother Luo is better than me? Are you trying to sow discord between me and Junior Brother Luo?
"Junior Brother Luo came here just to find himself a suitable piece of sky law fragment to form his Dao Energy. Ha ha ha Its hilarious of you to say that he is better than me."
The three Taixu Sect disciples following Zheng Rulai also burst into laughter. In their opinion, Yuan Venerate Huang Yue had just cracked a huge joke.
Luo Yunyang had relied on his fathers prestige in order to obtain a slot to enter Boundless Taixu. It was an indisputable fact that everyone was unwilling to offend him, but saying that he was stronger than Senior Brother Li? How could that ever be possible?
Unfortunately, their laughter did not last long, as they realized that Yuan Venerate Huang Yue and her party did not react to this funny joke.
They actually looked serious.
Senior Brother Li naturally noticed this too. He turned to look at Luo Yunyang and said, "Junior Brother Luo, has your cultivation base really improved? Could you fight it out with me now?"
Before Luo Yunyang could speak, Yuan Venerate Huang Yue interrupted him. "Junior Brother is already very strong to begin with. Its just that he was suppressed by the Vast Sky Sacred Realm because he does not have Dao Energy. In Boundless Taixu, however, there is no suppression from the nine sky laws. Therefore, Junior Brother Luo can fully utilize his abilities."
"Since Junior Sister Huang Yue has so much confidence in Junior Brother Luo, Junior Brother Luo should challenge me. If he loses, the Sky Seal Jade Plate will belong to me."
After he said that, Senior Brother Li stared at Yuan Venerate Huang Yue and added, "Junior Sister Yuan Venerate Huang Yue, dont tell me you do not have the guts!"
"Whats so difficult about this? Since you said so, lets invite Junior Brother Luo to challenge Senior Brother Li." Yuan Venerate Huang Yue replied right away after seeing Senior Brother Li act the way she had hoped.
Luo Yunyang glanced at Senior Brother Li and sneered, "There are plenty of Sky Seal Jade Plates outside. We can steal other peoples Sky Seal Jade Plates. Whats so impressive about stealing our own?"
Senior Brother Lis face immediately flushed, and even Zheng Rulais expression darkened. While Zheng Rulais Sky Seal Jade Plate had been offered willingly by Junior Brother Qin on the surface, it had, in fact, still been forcefully snatched.
"Junior Brother Luo, you dont have to be sarcastic. I will only be convinced if you really obtain a Sky Seal Jade Plate out there."
