Yang Ruoxu cultivated the Righteousness Sutra and had always been open and honest. He was chivalrous and filled with righteousness.
As for Fang Qingyun’s group, although they spoke of benevolence and morality and said that they were doing it for the academy, they were actually scheming and had other motives.
Now that Yang Ruoxu was out of seclusion and his injuries had healed, he was even better than before—who would dare to take the Righteousness Sword in his hands?
Who was qualified to obtain the Righteousness Sword?
The Righteousness Sutra had been passed down for a long time. However, throughout history, there were not many people who cultivated it and there were even less cultivators who could cultivate it to greater mastery.
In this generation’s academy, Yang Ruoxu was the only one who had cultivated the Righteousness Sutra successfully.
Although Chang Qi claimed to have cultivated this sutra, in reality, he was only at the tip of the iceberg and could not unleash its true power.
Nobody in the immortality cultivation world could guarantee that they had not done anything shameful.
Who could guarantee that they had not done anything wrong?
Who could guarantee that everything they did was honorable?
Even in the entire academy, including the elders, Yang Ruoxu was the only one worthy of wielding the Righteousness Sword, let alone the inner sect!
Fang Qingyun had not expected Yang Ruoxu’s injuries to recover to his peak!
All his plans collapsed the moment Yang Ruoxu came out of seclusion.
There were more than ten thousand people but they were like scattered sand!
Although Fang Qingyun was an inner sect disciple, he was no match for Yang Ruoxu who was wielding the Righteousness Sword.
“So, your injuries have already healed, Junior Brother Yang. Congratulations.”
Fang Qingyun was extremely adaptable and did not intend to fight Yang Ruoxu head-on. Instead, he took a step back and cupped his fists in congratulations.
Yang Ruoxu glared at Fang Qingyun coldly without replying. Thereafter, he raised his head and looked at the skies with a stern expression.
It was originally noon and the sun was blazing.
However, at that moment, dark clouds gathered above the academy and the skies gradually darkened.
Fang Qingyun and the others were shocked when they noticed that!
“He’s about to undergo Tribulation Transcendence!”
The moment that voice sounded, it was like a stone that caused a thousand waves and the crowd exploded!
“Yang Ruoxu encountered such a calamity and actually benefited from it. He is taking the most critical step and is about to advance to the Perfected One realm!”
“Hmph! It’s not that easy! Throughout history, there have been many people who underwent Tribulation Transcendence. However, only 30% of them managed to survive the Six of Nine Heavenly Tribulation and condense their Dao Fruits to advance to the Perfected One realm!”
“No matter what, Yang Ruoxu has already come this far. Many people won’t even have the chance to undergo Tribulation Transcendence.”
“To think that Senior Brother Yang would be the first to undergo Tribulation Transcendence among the hundreds of thousands of fellow inner sect disciples. If he succeeds, Senior Brother Fang will be left behind as well.”
When he heard the discussions around him, Fang Qingyun’s expression darkened. His eyes were filled with shock and jealousy.
However, the phenomenon in the skies had already attracted everyone’s attention and no one paid attention to him.
Yang Ruoxu’s figure rose slowly and everyone watched!
In front of Mo Qing’s cave abode in the legacy ground, a man stood with his hands behind his back. He was tall, had sharp brows and bright eyes with an extraordinary aura—it was Sword Immortal Yue Hua.
Not far away, Fairy Mo Qing flew over.
Sword Immortal Yue Hua hurried forward with a smile. “Junior sister, I’ve been worried about you for the past few days. If you hadn’t returned, I would have been prepared to make a move to explore Avici!”
“Thank you for your concern, senior brother.”
Mo Qing nodded with an indifferent expression.
Although she said it politely, it was as though they were thousands of kilometers apart and were even more distant than before.
Sword Immortal Yue Hua’s expression froze for a moment. However, he regained his smile quickly and asked, “Junior sister, have you found what you were looking for on this trip to Hell?”
Mo Qing replied distractedly.
However, Sword Immortal Yue Hua’s expression changed as he asked with a frown, “You obtained the Saraca Fruit, junior sister?”
“I didn’t obtain the Saraca Fruit.”
Mo Qing was surprised and puzzled as she shook his head gently, not understanding why Sword Immortal Yue Hua would have such a guess.
That was indeed the truth—the Saraca Fruit was taken away by Su Zimo.
Sword Immortal Yue Hua heaved a sigh of relief and chuckled. “I was thinking too much.”
“Senior brother, if there’s nothing else, I’ll go back and rest first.”
Mo Qing said indifferently.
Her words meant that she was sending him off.
Naturally, Sword Immortal Yue Hua could tell. However, he did not leave and took the initiative to invite, “Junior sister, Junior Brother Yang of the inner sect is severely injured and won’t be able to hold on for long. Let’s go check on him together.”
“Junior Brother Yang?”
Mo Qing was confused and could not react in time.
‘Continue pretending. Let’s see how much longer you can pretend!’
Sword Immortal Yue Hua sneered internally but smiled. “Junior Brother Yang Ruoxu.”
Mo Qing frowned slightly and shook her head. “Senior brother, go on. I won’t be going.”
In her opinion, she and Yang Ruoxu were just ordinary fellow sect mates and were not familiar with one another, so there was no need for her to take a look.
Furthermore, Junior Brother Su had already sent the Saraca Fruit over. Yang Ruoxu should not be in any danger.
Initially, Sword Immortal Yue Hua wanted to head over with Fairy Mo Qing to watch Yang Ruoxu struggle on the brink of death. However, he did not expect Mo Qing to be completely uninterested.
When Sword Immortal Yue Hua saw that Mo Qing did not seem to care about Yang Ruoxu’s safety and did not seem to be faking it, he was puzzled as well.
“What’s going on?”
“What went wrong?”
As Sword Immortal Yue Hua pondered, he sensed something and looked in the direction of the inner sect of the academy.
Dark clouds filled the skies and lightning flashed.
Someone from the inner sect of the academy was undergoing Tribulation Transcendence!
“It might be that lad, Fang Qingyun.”
Sword Immortal Yue Hua thought to himself and turned to Fairy Mo Qing, inviting, “Junior sister, someone from the inner sect is undergoing Tribulation Transcendence. Why don’t we go take a look?”
“I’m not going.”
Mo Qing shook her head gently and thought to herself, ‘What’s so interesting about a Tribulation Transcendence?’
Furthermore, she did not like to join crowds to begin with. The Tribulation Transcendence would definitely attract countless people, so she was even more unwilling to appear.
Fairy Mo Qing did not bid farewell either and turned to walk towards the cave abode, leaving nothing but a back view for Sword Immortal Yue Hua.
Sword Immortal Yue Hua was snubbed despite his repeated invites. Feeling disappointed, his smile gradually disappeared.
Right then, a streak of light sped over at an extremely fast speed and arrived before Sword Immortal Yue Hua in the blink of an eye. It was a legacy disciple of the academy, Xiao Li.
Xiao Li shouted from afar.
“What is it?”
Sword Immortal Yue Hua asked with a frown.
When Xiao Li saw Sword Immortal Yue Hua’s frustrated expression, he hesitated for a moment.
Sword Immortal Yue Hua looked in the direction of the inner sect of the academy and asked casually, “Who is the one undergoing the Tribulation Transcendence in the inner sect? Fang Qingyun?”
Xiao Li shook his head and said hesitantly, “It’s… Yang Ruoxu.”
Sword Immortal Yue Hua’s expression changed and the sharpness in his body burst forth. Releasing it, he glared at Xiao Li coldly and asked slowly, “Who?”
Xiao Li gulped.
“His Essence Spirit was severely injured but he can still attempt Tribulation Transcendence?” Suddenly, Sword Immortal Yue Hua’s tone turned extremely sharp.
Xiao Li said, “I heard that his Essence Spirit recovered completely after consuming the Saraca Fruit.”
Sword Immortal Yue Hua’s expression darkened as he asked, “Where did the Saraca Fruit come from?!”
Xiao Li replied, “Su Zimo of the inner sect, the one who condensed the tenth stone step on the Dao Heart Stairs a thousand years ago and was accepted by the Sect Master as an in-name disciple. He obtained it in Avici.”
Sword Immortal Yue Hua narrowed his eyes gradually.
