Chapter 1116 I Really Envy These Young People
“Rise, child. Would you like to be my disciple?” Zhang Fan squatted down and lifted Zhou Fan up with his own hands. He released a little Qi in his palm and refined a healing elixir, sending its efficacy into Zhou Fan’s body.
Zhang Fan was now highly respected in the Swordsmanship-seeking Sect, and his strength was high. He had made great achievements again and again, and his prestige was second only to Ding Hao’s. The elixir he took out was not ordinary. The wounds on the surface of the youth’s body healed at a visible speed.
“You… you’re…” Zhou Fan also came to his senses at this time. He was quite dumbfounded at the huge surprise. He said in disbelief, “You’re Senior… Senior Mad Saber?”
“I am Zhang Fan,” Zhang Fan said with a smile.
Unconsciously, after so many years of ups and downs, the previous hunter boy now also had a superior aura. His faint smile was gentle like a breath of fresh air.
Zhou Fan was stunned. Suddenly, he knelt before Zhang Fan and kowtowed a few times. He even got his forehead injured as he said loudly, “It would be an honor for me to be your disciple. Senior, please accept me. I’m willing to pay anything…”
“Silly child, get up.” Zhang Fan smiled and helped the tanned and thin boy up.
“Your name is Zhou Fan, and my name is Zhang Fan. We have the same first name. Haha, alright. From now on, you would be my personal disciple.” Zhang Fan laughed.
When he first saw this tanned and thin boy, he felt a sense of familiarity. Later, when Zhou Fan took the perseverance test, his tough attitude reminded Zhang Fan of the scene when he took the assessment of the Swordsmanship-seeking Sect. At that time, if Senior Brother Ding had not given in at the critical moment, Zhang Fan would have been dead, and it would be impossible for him to have his current fortune.
Moreover, Zhang Fan’s aptitude for martial arts was extremely poor. Even now, his Qi cultivation had only reached the Semi Primordial Realm. He majored in physical cultivation, which focused on perseverance the most. On the contrary, it did not have high requirements for Qi and talent, which just suited Zhou Fan.
Zhou Fan’s face was full of excitement. He knelt on the ground again and performed the apprentice ceremony. His whole body was shining with amazing brilliance again. He was afraid that Zhang Fan would go back on his word. He even cried happily and could not control his emotions.
The countless youths around looked at Zhou Fan with great envious and jealous eyes.
“This tanned boy is really lucky!”
Originally, with his talent and qualifications, he was not suitable to be a disciple of the Swordsmanship-seeking Sect at all. Even if he went to some other small sects, it was believed that they would never accept him. However, the crowd had never expected that such an insignificant nominal disciple test would bother a legendary figure like Zhang Fan, the Mad Saber.
It seemed that Zhou Fan’s performance in the perseverance test had attracted the Mad Saber’s attention.
Now, those teenagers who quit early regretted it. If they had known it better, they would have held on. Maybe they would be valued by the Mad Saber by now if they had endured the terrible pain and persisted like Zhou Fan.
It should be noted that Zhang Fan, the Mad Saber, was a legend of martial arts in Snow Province. He was now a close friend of Ding Hao, the chief of the Northern Region Martial Alliance. Zhang Fan was also a leading figure in the entire Swordsmanship-seeking Sect. Now that Zhou Fan had become a personal disciple of the Mad Saber, it meant that he had skipped the levels of nominal disciples, outside disciples, and inside disciples in an instant and directly became a personal disciple of the Swordsmanship-seeking Sect. His future achievements would be limitless.
Even the two youths who passed the perseverance test with results exceeding first class, the elegant youth Li Yun and the young scholar Mu Tian, looked at Zhou Fan with envy.
Right at this moment, another voice was heard.
“Junior Brother Zhang, I didn’t expect that you would also want to take in a disciple.” A young man in a cyan robe walked out.
He had a warm smile on his face. He was a typical handsome man with a bright aura that made people want to worship him. His voice seemed to have a warm power, which made people feel full of strength.
“This child is fated to be my disciple.” Zhang Fan smiled and said, “Senior Brother Ding, among the peers of our session, you already have several disciples. It’s time for me to get myself a successor.”
“You do have an eye for choosing disciples.” The young man in the cyan robe nodded. He looked at Zhou Fan and said, “This child has an excellent temperament and will definitely become a great talent in the future.” As he spoke, he opened his palm. With a flash of light, a small cyan bottle appeared out of thin air. He handed it over and said, “Martial Nephew, this bottle of Cyan Jade Nine Turns Embryo Elixirs would be my gift for you since it’s the first time we met!”
Zhou Fan blankly stared at the young man in the cyan robe.
He didn’t know this man, but he felt an unprecedented feeling from this young man who seemed to be no different from an ordinary person. Zhou Fan didn’t know how to describe his actual feelings, and he even felt that the young man was more powerful and mysterious than his master.
However, Zhang Fan smiled and said, “Young fella, what are you waiting for? What Senior Brother Ding offers are all treasures. Take it. Even I am envious of this bottle of Cyan Jade Nine Turns Embryo Elixirs!”
At the same time, everyone around them held their breath.
Every teenager’s eyes were shining with crazy light.
They were not fools. Through the conversation just now, they had already guessed who the young man in the cyan cotton-padded robe was. In the Swordsmanship-seeking Sect, except for Ding Hao, the Saber and Sword Addict, who could be respectfully called Senior Brother Ding by Zhang Fan, the Mad Saber?
“Oh my god!”
Everyone felt a little dizzy.
Ding Hao was the chief of the Northern Region Martial Alliance, the martial arts legend of the entire Northern Region, the idol of all the rising stars, the new backing of the Human Clan in the Northern Region, and the most incredible martial arts legend in thousands of years.
He had simply too many legendary titles.
The teenagers did not expect to see this immortal-like figure on the first day they came to the Swordsmanship-seeking Sect.
Even some ordinary disciples of the Swordsmanship-seeking Sect had gone crazy.
Zhou Fan felt that he was unbelievably lucky. He just wanted to enter the Swordsmanship-seeking Sect and become a glorious swordsman to have his and his family’s fate changed. He didn’t expect that such a once-in-a-lifetime good opportunity would come to him.
“Thank… thank you… thank you, Senior Ding.” Zhou Fan was so excited that he could not speak.
He was in a daze.
“Why are you still calling me Senior?” Ding Hao smiled slightly.
“What? Right… yes, thank you very much, Martial Uncle.” Zhou Fan suddenly understood that he was already a disciple of Zhang Fan. According to seniority, he should call Ding Hao Martial Uncle.
The tanned and thin young man with amazing perseverance was so happy that he couldn’t close his mouth. It was as if he had gone foolish.
No one was laughing at him.
The teenagers next to him thought to themselves that if they were Zhou Fan, they would perform even worse than him when they had such an incredible opportunity.
In the crowd, those young men in finery were shocked and scared at this time.
They had recognized that Ding Hao and Zhang Fan were the sect handymen whom they had scolded before. They had never expected that such a thing would happen. What they had done was not right. When they thought that they had dared to be presumptuous in front of the Mad Saber and the other powerful figures, they were so frightened that they almost peed themselves.
Fortunately, Ding Hao did not pursue this matter with those teenagers.
He thought that the temperament of teenagers was always like this. As long as they were lectured after joining the sect, they would not be domineering.
After saying a few words to the elder in charge of the assessment, Ding Hao and the others turned around and left.
The teenagers watched Zhou Fan leave with Zhang Fan with envy and disappointment. Ding Hao did not choose a disciple from the crowd as Zhang Fan did. Also, they had no way to perform their skills. They missed such an opportunity and did not know when it would appear again.
“Senior… Senior Ding, wait a minute. My name is Li Yun. Please… please take me as your disciple…” At that moment, the elegant youth Li Yun had the courage out of nowhere to rush out and shout, trying to strive for a chance.
Mu Tian, the young scholar, also plucked up his courage to say, “Please… please take me in as well…”
The two boys’ minds went blank. They didn’t know how they stepped forward, and even their voices were trembling.
However, to their disappointment, Ding Hao and the others did not stop. As if they had not heard anything, they flashed and disappeared into the distance. It looked like they had integrated into the air.
Looking at the place where Ding Hao and the others disappeared, the two teenagers were extremely disappointed. They felt unprecedented frustration, which made them stay where they were.
The others looked at the expressions of the two young men with sympathy.
However, everyone had already expected this. If it was so easy to become Ding Hao’s disciple, everyone would fight over such a chance. It was not easy to become the disciple of this legendary figure of martial arts.
But at this moment, the elder in charge of the test of perseverance came over and patted the shoulders of the two teenagers, saying, “Young men, you will surpass us in time. You two are the first ones who dare to chase after Great Martial Uncle Ding Hao like this and beg him to take you as his disciples.”
Both the teenagers were extremely vexed with their heads lowered. They were still immersed in extreme disappointment, unable to get away from it.
They were both teenagers with excellent aptitudes. They came all the way to Snow Province. Not only did they exceed first class in the perseverance test, but they also did a good job on other tests. It was a piece of cake for them to enter the Swordsmanship-seeking Sect, which they were very proud of. However, at this moment, they were extremely disappointed and frustrated by the legendary man’s refusal.
The elder laughed and said, “Young guys, you really can’t take a blow. Well, I won’t tease you anymore. Take these two jade tokens. Before the sun rises tomorrow, you will go to the Sect Leader Main Hall with the jade tokens, and Great Martial Uncle Ding will be waiting for you there.”
As soon as he said that, the crowd exclaimed.
The two teenagers also seemed to be struck by lightning. They slowly raised their heads, and a bright light burst out of their disappointed eyes. They looked at the elder in disbelief and asked in a trembling voice, “You… Elder… you mean…”
They could not believe what they just heard.
They were afraid that the elder was only kidding.
The elder said with a smile, “Haha, you’re lucky. Since you’re able to attract Great Martial Uncle Ding’s attention, your future achievements will definitely not be worse than Zhou Fan’s. With these two jade tokens, you would be nominal disciples of the Saber and Sword Addict from now on.”
To be honest, the elder was also a little envious of these young men.
“They are young, hot-blooded, energetic, and have infinite possibilities. In addition, they will have the guidance of Ding Hao, the martial arts legend. I do look forward to seeing what great achievements Li Yun and Mu Tian will have in the future.”
At this moment, Li Yun and Mu Tian were in ecstasy.
