’’For the time being, do not let anyone else know that my cultivation has
broken through to White Lotus Third Grade.’’ Miao Yi instructed, then hid the
lotus outline on his forehead.
The two of them discussed their secret plan in hushed voices, then left the
silent quarters together.
As he saw Qian'Er and Xue'Er outside, Miao Yi stopped in his tracks and
pondered for a while, then took out two Orbs of Will and gave one each to the
two young girls.
The both of them knew this was something good. Once they had successfully
trained their art source, this would be of great benefit to their own cultivation,
so naturally they thanked the Cave Master with expressions of heartfelt joy.
Yan Xiu only looked on and didn't say anything. He knew that Miao Yi did this
as preparation in case he could not make it back, the two Orbs of Will would act
as a sort of reparation for the two young girls on account of their relationship.
They watched as the two young ladies left to gather the cultivators of East
Arrival Cave for departure.
Not long after, at the plaza outside the East Arrival Grand Hall; Zheng Jinlong,
Wang Zifa, Zhu Tianbiao, Qiu Shaoqun, Dan Biaoyi, Shang Youlai, Hou Sheng,
Nan Sisi and Wang Xiuqin, all fell in line on their dragon steeds with their
weapons in hand.
Even the gatekeeper had been called over; every one of them looked at each
other, unsure of what was happening, and why the Cave Master was making
such a big commotion.
Miao Yi walked over slowly from the treasury. He had already stuffed all the
annual gifts from East Arrival City into his storage ring. As he came out of the
Grand Hall he called Charcoal over and leapt onto his steed. He turned to look
at Yan Xiu, who was cupping his fists to send them off, before waving his hand
and saying, ’’March!’’
A puzzled group followed after him as their horses broke into a gallop; their
stomps boomed like thunder with overwhelming momentum.
Qian'Er and Xue'Er only felt that their Cave Master looked valiant, and were
completely unaware to when he would return.
As they journeyed on, Zheng Jinlong could no longer hold back his doubts, and
chased after Miao Yi's back to ask, ’’Cave Master, where are we going?’’
’’You'll naturally find out once we reach.’’ Miao Yi didn't leak any information
out at all.
The group rode to the seaside, and one by one brought their dragon steeds onto
the ship in the dock.
To everyone, the existence of this ship was no secret, but they were curious as
to where they were sailing off to.
With other dragon steeds on the ship, there was of course no need for the Cave
Master's own steed to be the ship's primary driving force.
What's more is that the other dragon steeds were more obedient, and did
whatever the master told them to, unlike Charcoal, who didn't have the selfawareness
that it was a steed with a master.
Seeing others suffering, Charcoal felt a rush of energy, and the beast that Miao
Yi usually had to force or coax into the power chamber, stepped foot inside of
its own accord. With its rump held high, Charcoal made a couple snorts to the
other horses that had to become the driving force, as a display of its status. It
even twisted its butt at the others and flicked its tail around, before finally
leaving, as though asking the others to work hard.
Hou Sheng handled the rudder under Miao Yi's instructions; as the ship headed
out to sea, he immediately steered it towards the south-eastern direction.
The dragon steeds all heeded their master's orders and obediently stood in a
line beside the railing of the ship's deck, facing the great ocean. Charcoal was
the only one that was used to being extremely lax, occasionally falling in line,
bumping its head on this, and hitting its rump on that; it even ran around on
the deck. Its vigor was evident, only that it was a little plump.
Everyone had already gotten accustomed to this Cave Master's steed that
lacked even the slightest ounce of discipline, and had often been left to run
wild in East Arrival Cave. Many of East Arrival Cave's plants and flowers had
been destroyed by this beast. It even ran inside everyone's cultivation
residences where it continued on with its path of destruction, then laid on their
flower gardens and slept.
If it wasn't Miao Yi's steed, everyone would have thought of butchering this
bastard long ago. A steed that didn't behave in a steed's manner, clearly the
Cave Master was the one that spoilt it so.
On the highest deck of the ship, everyone stood behind Miao Yi, facing the
ocean as they rode the wind and broke through the waves.
Wang Zifa and the rest threw a glance to Zheng Jinlong; he could only walk to
Miao Yi's side with much difficulty and ask once more, ’’Cave Master, what is it
that we are supposed to do here?’’
Miao Yi slowly turned around, and smiled to the rest, ’’Doesn't everyone still
remember the fact that I have an alternate source for Orbs of Will? This Cave
Master has not forgotten his promise, so this journey is obviously to share the
rewards with everyone here!’’
The rest of their eyes immediately brightened, 'Could it be that we were going
to get some Orbs of Will?'
Then they listened on as Miao Yi added, ’’Because this matter is of grave
importance, I was afraid that someone would leak out the information, which
was why I didn't tell any of you beforehand. I hope all of you will not blame
As he became used to being the 'esteemed' Cave Master, his tone when
speaking with all of them had gradually become more suited to to the position
of Cave Master.
’’Cave Master's words are too serious!’’
’’Cave Master is wise. This matter is indeed very important, so it was natural to
’’Cave Master can make all the decisions, we will simply heed your orders.’’
The rest of them couldn't hold back their excitement as their eyes shone; one
after another speaking words of flattery.
Shang Youlai, Hou Sheng, Nan Sisi, and Wan Xiuqin were even more ecstatic.
They had gone through a lot of pain these past two years. Originally, each of
them could get two Orbs of Will every year, but then Zheng Jinlong popped out
of nowhere, and the four of them could do naught but take turns readying
three orbs every year to give to Senior Brother Zheng.
They were told to wait until the Cave Master could compensate them for their
share of Orbs of Will from his alternate source, but it had been so long and the
Cave Master hadn't so much as batted an eye at them. They didn't dare speak
their opinions out to the Cave Master or their Senior Brother, so they could
only keep everything to themselves. They even thought that it was only a
method used by the Cave Master in order to subjugate them previously, and in
truth, that the so-called alternate source of Orbs of Will didn't exist at all. Who
knew that the Cave Master would be so appreciative this time around, and was
really going to retrieve the Orbs of Will; it could certainly be said to be a
They no longer looked at the Cave Master the same way.
Only Zheng Jinlong still had some doubts, so he cautiously asked, ’’If I may ask
where the Cave Master is planning to get....’’
Miao Yi swept him a cold glare that stopped him, and said indifferently, ’’It
seems you're really interested in knowing the details first? You wouldn't
happen to be plotting something, would you?’’
’’No! Nothing of the sort!’’ said Zheng Jinlong, anxiously waving his hand. He
knew that he had broken a taboo, and didn't dare continue his inquiry.
Even if the rest of them had doubts, they knew that the Cave Master was sure
to keep this sort of secret to himself, and wouldn't easily reveal it; thus, no one
bothered asking anymore, so long as they could get their Orbs of Will in due
Among them Dan Biaoyi felt a little depressed, as he didn't know that the Cave
Master was bringing them out for this. He was supposed to be the 'spy' that
Yang Qing had sent to East Arrival Cave, and needed to report on East Arrival
Cave's situation at regular intervals.
It really was 'too great'; with this sudden move by the Cave Master, he himself
was already on the ocean and didn't have the chance to pass this information
After that everyone made some idle chatter, Miao Yi then decided to head
downstairs after listening to a bout of empty platitudes, and proceeded to his
own personal room; the largest personal room in the ship naturally belonged
to him, the Cave Master.
Day in and day out, they looked at the ocean during the day, and during the
night they gazed at the black curtain of stars; the world seemed to feel
Days passed one after another; everyone took turns handling the rudder, and in
letting their own dragon steeds become the ship's driving force.
With a dragon steed acting as the ship's driving force, the ship continued to
ride the winds and break through the waves of the ocean at a tremendous
Whereas Miao Yi spent the majority of his time in meditation and cultivated
inside the cabin.
The group of cultivators also didn't fear the boring days drifting on the ocean,
as they could simply use this time to cultivate.
But a month later, the ship still showed no signs of reaching shore. With the
dragon steeds powering the ship's speed, this was very abnormal.
Everyone slowly felt that something was off with the ship's direction; this
direction seemed to be headed towards the Yao Nation, and it especially
seemed like it was headed towards the most chaotic place in the Yao Nation....
the Sea of Constellations!
They were all no longer greenhorn cultivators, so they could vaguely guess
where this ship was headed from the direction of its course, and faintly
suspected that the Cave Master's so-called source of Orbs of Will was to go
hunting at the Sea of Constellations?
