Chapter 200: Bad News from Uninhabited Region
This change in attitude really caught Zhao Wan’er off guard. She turned around and saw a dense array of gifts in the Qianqing Hall.
Lin Qingzhu had a headache and didn’t know how to deal with it.
“Forget it, I’ll leave these things here for now. I’ll deal with them when Master comes out of seclusion.” Lin Qingzhu said as she sorted out these gifts.
At this moment, someone walked in. When the three of them heard the commotion, they looked over and realized that it was Liu Qingfeng.
Lin Qingzhu frowned. Why was Liu Qingfeng free to come to Violet Cloud Peak today? According to usual practice, this Eldest Senior Brother would not come over unless he had something to inform her.
Liu Qingfeng slowly walked in and looked at the gifts on the ground with envy. Then, he asked, “Junior Sister Lin, where’s Martial Uncle Ye?”
“My master went into seclusion. Eldest Senior Brother, why are you looking for him?” Before Lin Qingzhu could answer, Little Linglong impatiently spoke.
“He’s in seclusion?” When Liu Qingfeng heard this, the smile on his face immediately disappeared and his brows furrowed.

Looking at his expression, something must have happened. Lin Qingzhu couldn’t help but start to feel nervous.
“Senior Brother, feel free to speak. I’m in charge of Violet Cloud Peak now…” Lin Qingzhu said. She looked very calm on the surface, but she was still quite flustered in her heart.
In the past few months since she took over Violet Cloud Peak, she had only dealt with some small matters and had not encountered any major ones for the time being. This was a sign that something big was about to happen.
Liu Qingfeng’s eyes lit up when he heard this. “I see. Then Junior Sister, come with me. This morning, the Sect Master held a meeting with the seven peak masters in the Jade Pure Hall and invited the various peak masters to go.
“Since Junior Sister is temporarily in charge of Violet Cloud Peak, Junior Sister will represent Violet Cloud Peak to attend…”
His visit this time was purely to inform Violet Cloud Peak’s master to go to the Jade Pure Hall for a meeting. He didn’t expect Ye Qiu to be in seclusion and the person temporarily in charge of Violet Cloud Peak was Lin Qingzhu. However, it did not matter. It was fine as long as someone from Violet Cloud Peak was present. The rest was not important.
Hearing this, Zhao Wan’er couldn’t help but become curious. Then, she continued to ask, “Senior Brother, did something big happen?”
The two of them were caught off guard. Why did the Sect Master suddenly hold a meeting with the seven peak masters? Usually, something big must have happened for such a meeting. Otherwise, the Seven Peaks Meeting would definitely not be held so easily.
Liu Qingfeng shook his head and said, “I don’t know either. Junior Sister, hurry up and go over. You’ll know when you get there. I still have to inform the Martial Uncles of the other peaks. I’ll take my leave first…”
“Alright, Senior Brother, take care.” Lin Qingzhu said lightly. After watching Liu Qingfeng leave, she fell into deep thought.
Zhao Wan’er turned around and said, “Senior Sister, it seems like something big has happened. Hurry up and go take a look. From the looks of it, this matter isn’t small. Senior Sister, you have to be careful. Before Master left, he instructed us not to be too ostentatious and cause trouble before he returned. We should keep a low profile.”
“Alright…” Lin Qingzhu nodded. She had always remembered her master’s instructions before he left and knew what she should do.
Turning around, Lin Qingzhu instructed Little Linglong, “Linglong, I’ll leave first. Today, your Second Senior Sister will bring you to cultivate. You have to listen to your Second Senior Sister, understand?”
“Yes, yes. Linglong understands…” Little Linglong nodded obediently. That once insufferably arrogant little demon king seemed to have learned her lesson recently. She actually didn’t go around hurting others. Perhaps it was because of Ye Qiu’s instructions before he left.
After giving her instructions, Lin Qingzhu walked out of the Qianqing Hall and flew towards the First Peak.
At this moment, Qin Chuan was covered in snow. The entire Heaven Mending Sect was also covered in snow.
Lin Qingzhu flew all the way into the First Peak. She was stunned when she saw the training hall covered in snow. Someone landed behind her.
Lin Qingzhu was stunned. The person who came was actually Liu Ruyan from the Heavenly Water Peak. Could it be that Perfected Ming Yue was also in seclusion?
“Senior Sister Liu, why is it you? Is Martial Uncle Ming Yue in seclusion too?” Lin Qingzhu asked curiously. Her originally nervous mood suddenly relaxed. So she wasn’t the only junior representative. She felt much better now.
Liu Ruyan smiled and shook her head. She was under a lot of pressure, but she relaxed a little after seeing Lin Qingzhu. She replied, “My master has an opportunity to break through. She has been in seclusion for three months and has yet to come out. I’m temporarily in charge of the Heavenly Water Peak…”
Lin Qingzhu revealed a brilliant smile when she heard this. Wasn’t this a coincidence?
“Then… let’s go in together.” Lin Qingzhu smiled and the two of them walked into the Jade Pure Hall.
In the hall, Meng Tianzheng was already sitting in the Sect Master’s seat, waiting.
The Martial Uncles of the other peaks had yet to arrive. He was the only one sitting there worrying.
“Disciple Lin Qingzhu…”
“Disciple Liu Ruyan…”
“Greets the Sect Master…”
The two of them walked into the hall and shouted in unison. Meng Tianzheng was awakened by these words. When he came back to his senses and discovered the two of them, he frowned.
“Why is it the two of you? Where’s your master?” Meng Tianzheng asked in confusion. Lin Qingzhu slowly explained, “Sect Master, my master has already gone into seclusion. Violet Cloud Peak is temporarily under my care…”
After hearing this, Meng Tianzheng suddenly understood and was delighted. “Seclusion?”
This keyword instantly attracted Meng Tianzheng’s attention. He knew Ye Qiu’s current cultivation very well. He had already reached the peak of the Paragon realm when he was at Yun Ding. This seclusion was definitely to break through to the King-Ranked realm. Otherwise, he wouldn’t have gone into seclusion so easily.
Meng Tianzheng was overjoyed when he heard that Ye Qiu had gone into seclusion. All his previous melancholy was instantly swept away.
“Haha, good, good… Looks like my Heaven Mending Sect is really going to produce a King-Ranked powerhouse.”
Meng Tianzheng nodded twice in a row. He was originally feeling quite depressed, but now, he feels much better.
Meng Tianzheng turned around and looked at Liu Ruyan. “Has your master, Ming Yue, gone into seclusion too?”
Liu Ruyan replied seriously, “Sect Master, yes. Master has been in seclusion for three months. She should be coming out soon.”
Hearing this, Meng Tianzheng was elated again. Beautiful… It seemed like my Heaven Mending Sect would have another Paragon expert.
“Alright, since your master isn’t around, you can temporarily take your master’s seat.” Meng Tianzheng waved his hand, indicating for them to take their seats.
Liu Ruyan acted naturally and quickly walked to the Heavenly Water Peak and sat down at Ming Yue’s seat.
Lin Qingzhu stood up and swept her gaze across the hall. Soon, she found Violet Cloud Peak’s seat. It was still that familiar corner. The last time she saw this seat was when she entered the sect. The person sitting in that seat was Ye Qiu.
Lin Qingzhu never thought that she would be able to sit in this position one day. Although she was a junior, her current identity was the temporary master of Violet Cloud Peak. Therefore, she could also sit down.
Lin Qingzhu was delighted as she slowly walked to the seat. She did not expect to sit in her master’s seat.
The cunningness in his heart immediately appeared. How about secretly putting a few needles on his seat when she leaves later and trick her master?
After thinking about it, this scheming thought was killed in the cradle. Forget it. Her master was so good that she couldn’t bear to trick him.
Soon after Lin Qingzhu sat down, the other peak masters arrived one after another.
The last to arrive was Qi Wuhui. As soon as he entered, he asked, “Senior Brother, why did you call us over in such a hurry?”
The peak masters of the various factions were all very confused. Ever since they returned from Yun Ding, they had been preparing for the disciple recruitment ceremony next spring. They were extremely busy.
During this period of time, many large clans in the Eastern Wasteland had frequently sent gifts up the mountain to curry favor with them. But they were so happy that they didn’t do anything and were busy collecting a bunch of treasures. During this period of time, even their dreams were sweet.
It was obvious how influential Yun Ding was. Almost the entire Heaven Mending Sect had benefited greatly.
Looking at their radiant expressions, Meng Tianzheng waved his hand, indicating for them to quiet down. He also knew very well how comfortable they had been during this period of time. He really couldn’t bear to disturb them. However, at this point, he had no choice but to say it.
Then, he slowly stood up and said, “Junior Brothers, calm down. I called everyone here today for an especially important matter. This matter concerns the life and death of my Heaven Mending Sect. We can’t be careless…”
As soon as these words were spoken, the entire Jade Pure Hall instantly turned cold. The smiles on everyone’s faces stopped.
Qi Wuhui’s heart trembled. He had been with Meng Tianzheng for so many years, and judging from his expression, he didn’t seem to be joking. He rarely joked either. He immediately realized the seriousness of the problem.
“Senior Brother, what is it? Tell us…” Qi Wuhui stood up nervously and asked.
“That’s right, Senior Brother Sect Master. What happened? Could it be the previous incident?” Yang Wudi also asked. He hadn’t had enough of his dreams and didn’t want it to end so quickly.
Lin Qingzhu and Liu Ruyan’s hearts trembled when they heard Meng Tianzheng’s words. They knew the seriousness of this matter. They were momentarily flustered. They were still young and had never experienced such a thing. Although they were already mentally prepared before coming, they were still a little frightened. The martial uncles in front asked one after another, but they could not interrupt at all.
Meng Tianzheng continued, “Everyone, calm down and listen to me…”
As Meng Tianzheng finished speaking, the Jade Pure Hall regained its calm. Everyone looked at him. He waved his hand and let a disciple of the First Peak walk in.
The disciple of the First Peak said, “Sect Master, Martial Uncles, Senior Sisters, a few days ago, my two senior brothers and I were training at the foot of the mountain. We happened to hear that there was chaos in the depths of the uninhabited region.
“We were also curious when we first heard about this, so we boldly sneaked into the uninhabited region to investigate the source of the chaos.
“We discovered that a great chaos is erupting in the vast and boundless uninhabited region. The hundreds and thousands of mountains are covered in flames and ferocious beasts are wreaking havoc. Even the ancient ferocious beast and primordial descendants appeared. They were fighting each other like the world would collapse in a moment.
“When we saw that scene, my senior brothers and I were dumbfounded. We didn’t dare to stay any longer and hurriedly ran back to report. Unfortunately, when we were retreating, my two senior brothers died in order to protect me. Only I escaped.”
