HSSB120: Working together in unison
At the Fu Enshu who was looking at him, Yan Zhaoge also didn’t keep her guessing as he smiled, “Two plans, working together in unison.”
“Firstly, when adventuring outside previously, I inadvertently obtained a martial scripture of before the Great Calamity specifically targeted at Maidens of Extreme Yin, the Extreme Yin Scripture.”
Fu Enshu’s gaze flickered as it remained fixated on Yan Zhaoge.
The Feng Yunsheng at the side was slightly stunned, “Extreme Yin Scripture?”
Yan Zhaoge nodded, “That’s right; it looks like you’ve heard of it before.”
Feng Yunsheng mumbled, “I’ve indeed previously heard it…mentioned by some Elders in the past.”
“For Maidens of Extreme Yin like us, in cultivating in other martial arts, we do not hold any special advantages, being no different from ordinary people. It all depends on our personal martial talent.”
“However, it is rumoured that before the Great Calamity, there existed a precious scripture known as the Extreme Yin Scripture, specifically suited for the cultivation of Maidens of Extreme Yin.”
“Using it to cultivate, Maidens of Extreme Yin would be able to achieve much more with less effort. Their cultivation speed in the martial dao increasing greatly aside, it also nurtured their Extreme Yin Physiques, strengthening their Extreme Yin energy.”
Feng Yunsheng looked at Yan Zhaoge, “But ever since the Great Calamity, this martial scripture has been lost to the world, not even fragmented segments of it having been left behind, only staying on in the form of legends and rumours.”
Yan Zhaoge smiled as he waited for her to finish speaking, before he said, “It is precisely that.”
“The method to help you to regain your Extreme Yin Physique was something that I came up with myself, but the inspiration from that stemmed from the Extreme Yin Scripture.”
After saying thus, he looked at Fu Enshu, “In our clan, there are only Grand Master and my father who currently know of this. You are the third person of the higher echelons to know.”
“After I found the Extreme Yin Scripture, you have always been in secluded cultivation. Thus, I could only tell you about it today.”
Fu Enshu nodded, then mentioned casually, “You have made quite a great contribution in this matter. However, since you have the Extreme Yin Scripture, it would be the same if you gave it to me, and I passed it down to Yunsheng.”
Feng Yunsheng and Sikong Qing opened their mouths, but did not speak.
Ah Hu lowered his head and stared down at the floor. Able to speak of something like this as though it was only a completely natural thing-there was only this Elder Fu before them.
Fu Enshu said mildly, “I do not mean to steal your credit; the clan will definitely not withhold the reward that you deserve.”
“I will also have to guide Yunsheng along in her martial cultivation, and it can nicely coordinate with all that as well; why trouble two people on one matter? Zhaoge, your own cultivation can also not be delayed.”
Fu Enshu looked at Yan Zhaoge, “Unless, you have some other thoughts, thus trying to have her by your side every day?”
“Cough, cough…” Ah Hu nearly choked on his own saliva.
The usually cold Sikong Qing also looked curiously towards Yan Zhaoge.
Feng Yunsheng blinked, not giving off the impression of a shy, embarrassed girl at all, her eyes instead containing a hint of a smile as she looked at Yan Zhaoge in a natural, graceful manner.
Having everyone’s gazes all focused on him, Yan Zhaoge’s expression was as per normal as he did not appear pressured in the least.
Fu Enshu said mildly, “If you take charge of Yunsheng’s Extreme Yin cultivation, you will also have to face me often. Because of the problems of the previous generation, when seeing me, you actually also feel a little embarrassed, right? Why would you want to suffer that.”
Her words were even more candid than before. At this, Yan Zhaoge had the impulse to let out a bitter smile.
This senior apprentice-aunt really only cared about her own satisfaction, not so much caring about the feelings of others.
Still, Yan Zhaoge wasn’t actually dissatisfied with that, because while Fu Enshu’s wording was not at all polite, her thoughts were actually also not all that unreasonable.
If he could, Yan Zhaoge would also be happy to leave everything to Fu Enshu, taking on the role of a shopkeeper who just sat back and threw out orders, a carefree and relaxed existence.
As Fu Enshu said, anyway, the credit was already surely his; no one could take it away from him.
But Yan Zhaoge still decided to have this matter firmly within his own grasp.
He had his own reasons for doing so, just that many things, he could not reveal to outsiders.
But whether for overarching or personal reasons, Yan Zhaoge also had to be in it personally this time.
“I do not deny that I admire junior apprentice-sister Feng a lot, but at the present time at least, it has nothing to do with the relationship between a man and a woman,” Faced with Fu Enshu’s questioning, Yan Zhaoge answered calmly, “The reason I suggested myself being placed in charge of junior apprentice-sister Feng’s Extreme Yin cultivation was because I have some thoughts that need to be monitored and followed up with in real time as I constantly observe the changes in junior apprentice-sister Feng.”
Yan Zhaoge smiled, “Whether the Extreme Yin Scripture alone will definitely be able to get rid of the gap between her and the other Maidens of Extreme Yin is still something that cannot be guaranteed for sure.”
“After all, as junior apprentice-sister Feng catches up, the one who obtains the Extreme Yin Crown, with its help, would also experience a great increase in cultivation speed.”
Fu Enshu’s expression turned somewhat more serious, “Just now, you spoke of two methods, working together in unison?”
Yan Zhaoge spoke, “That’s right. The first is the Extreme Yin Scripture, while the second is an idea of mine.”
As he said thus, Yan Zhaoge extended both his hands, clasping them before him, “They all say that yin and yang coexisting is a major dao, but how is the dao of Extreme Yin not another type of major dao?”
“The Extreme Yin Crown-all the Extreme Yin energy under the heavens at its extreme, also makes for an extremely strong foundation.”
“Therefore, everyone tends never to attempt undermining this point.”
“It is only that a too extreme dao-path, while perhaps making for a journey just as long, a peak just as high, itself is destined to be more difficult the further one walks. Even while its end is always in sight, the dao-path will only get narrower and narrower.”
“If under the precondition of ensuring Extreme Yin as a basis, more variations can still be fused within, there would be a much larger space for development, forming a much wider dao-path.”
Yan Zhaoge spoke, “This way, walking along it would also be much faster.”
This time, Fu Enshu did not hurry to question Yan Zhaoge’s words, instead falling into deep thought.
After a while, she finally asked, “Your wanting to find a precious land of solitary yin that also contains solitary yang to assist in the recovery of Yunsheng’s initial Extreme Yin energy also falls along the same line as this, while both of these were the result of your research into Extreme Yin energy, the two thus serving to verify each other. Can the feasibility of this be confirmed?”
Yan Zhaoge nodded, “That’s right; it was the same conclusion that I arrived at from researching into two different pieces of information based off different lines of consideration. Although it still has yet to be completely verified, I believe that this plan, will work.”
Fu Enshu quickly continued, “You’ve also said that this would be under the precondition of ensuring Extreme Yin as a basis. Otherwise, with yin and yang mixing randomly, it would instead harm her Extreme Yin energy, doing more harm than good.”
“This requires the plan to really be able to work. Otherwise, it would only forever remain words on paper, resembling pavilions within the air.”
Yan Zhaoge nodded, “Senior apprentice-aunt Fu’s words make sense; I am in complete agreement.”
“I have always believed that, actions, speak louder than words.”
Saying thus, Yan Zhaoge extended his finger, speedily writing something in mid-air, as though deriving something. His aura-qi left marks behind, not dissipating for a long time.
A strong light abruptly flickered in Fu Enshu’s eyes, not dissipating for a long time.
“Although it is only in embryonic form, it will be sufficient for the Martial Scholar realm.”
She glanced at Yan Zhaoge, not mincing her words, “No wonder you dare to take on all of it yourself; your research attainment in this area is even deeper than my own. If I were persistent in not allowing it, I would instead be holding Yunsheng back, also holding the clan back.”
Fu Enshu lifted her head, letting out a soundless sigh as she gazed towards the skies, “Yan Di, perhaps, you will be surpassed by him one day?”
