Chapter 120.2: The Faint Mist Sect’s Insider Secrets
The arc at the edges of the man’s lips deepened slightly. [Interesting, that’s really interesting. How did this little brat come to know about such secret matters within the Faint Mist Sect? It must be known that these matters are things that many of the inner disciples would not have even heard about before, so where had this youth heard this gossip from?
On the other side, Qing Bei was still talking excitedly and did not notice that a man a short distance away from him was listening intently.
“It is said that the current Sect Leader is known to be a smiling tiger who makes his moves with brilliant execution, killing his enemies without drawing any blood. He was just a distant nephew of the previous Sect Leader and after his uncle died, the sect fell into scattered disarray and chaotic turmoil, very nearly becoming absorbed into the other two great sects. But as a kid who was only seventeen or eighteen years old, he stood forth against all odds and pushed back the covetous reach of the other two great sects, and even assumed the position of Sect Leader. No one in the Faint Mist Sect did not defer to him as anyone who had ill and crooked intentions were struck with terror by his mind blowing ways.”
Hearing him out, Qing Yu’s face was one of intrigue, her eyes shining as she looked his face up and down, almost like she was expecting a flower to bloom.
The youth was suddenly embarrassed. “Why are you looking at me like that?”
Qing Yu shook her head and then clicked her tongue. “I am just curious whether there is anything that you do not know. You can even sputter on so much about old and ancient events that happened more than a decade ago like this, and you were only two or three years old when that happened!”
[Could the kid be involved with some kind of mysterious secret organization behind everyone’s back who specialize in collecting all kinds of unknown secrets pertaining to all these sects and clans in the pugilist world?]
Hearing that, Qing Bei then scratched his head sheepishly and then lowered his voice further as he said: “I have not really gone to investigate into these things, but strangely, whenever I go think about it, all the information will just appear in my mind…..”
He had not even managed to finish his sentence when Qing Yu clamped her hand over his mouth and then said to him telepathically: “You fool! There are all kinds of skilled experts all around here and you dare to say something like that so carelessly. If any of them hears you, they will capture you and crack that brain of yours open to see what is actually inside!”
Qing Bei felt a chill run up his spine from that vehement and vicious expression on Qing Yu’s face. He then blinked his clear eyes innocently to indicate he understood and that he would not speak so carelessly anymore.
Qing Yu then let go of him. She had not known that the kid possessed such a peculiar ability over the years. When one sought to know about something, information would just appear in his mind without having to investigate at all. That….. was like a super divine artifact that gave them an incredible cheat!
Up on the arena, the matches for the inner disciples have already begun and because the top twenty were not due to compete yet, the remaining eighty duelled one on one, where the winning side would remain.
And all those disciples from the outer circle who failed and were eliminated had already been sent out of the boggy marshlands with their memories wiped away after being thrown out of the Faint Mist Sect. Many of them were parasitic worms who had been around since the previous Sect Leader’s time and there were some who possessed just average talent that were similarly thrown out because they had reached the peak of their potential.
