“I won’t disturb Senior Brother any longer,” Jiang Lan said softly.
Then, he turned around and left.
He didn’t know who he was.
However, based on the other party’s talent and ability, it couldn’t have been comfortable for him to be seen in a sorry state.
Therefore, Jiang Lan had no intention of staying.
He didn’t pay attention to the senior brother’s wet clothes either.
He came here to improve his cultivation, not to make enemies.
However, before he left, he planned to sign in.
Because it was not the Great Dao, he could not constantly sign in here.
That was why the Ninth Summit was his blessed land.
However, it had been so long since he had signed in. Perhaps he could obtain something good.
The gift of the Great Dao could be accumulated.
As for whether it was true or not, Jiang Lan felt that he would know after trying.
“System, sign in at the Peaceful Void Lake.”
[Signed in successfully. Congratulations to the host for obtaining the gift of the Great Dao. You have obtained the Sage Chapter: The Unmoved Sage.]
[The Unmoved Sage: There is no clear boundary between partiality and impartiality. A sage devoid of feelings deals with the people as the dogs of grass are dealt with.]
The Unmoved Sage?
Jiang Lan was stunned for a moment after signing in.
Then, he realized that there was a book in his mind.
The book floated in his mind like a calm lake.
The moment he saw the book, he felt like he could forget everything.
Grace. Hatred. Love. Anger.
Nothing could appear in this book.
Forgetting his feelings meant that he would be impartial. He would not be moved or disturbed by his emotions.
Jiang Lan looked at the Sage Chapter and felt that it was not inferior to the Daoist Scripture at all.
But learning this was equivalent to abandoning his seven emotions and six desires.
Although he pursued being flexible and tolerant like water, it did not mean that he had to give up his feelings.
In the end, he did not pay much attention to the Sage Chapter.
This did not suit him.
Although it was indeed impressive, it was only useful as a reference. It had no direct cultivation value.
He knew himself well enough. He was not one who could be a sage devoid of emotions.
This went against his original intention. He did not want anything that did not go with it.
Jiang Lan then left the Peaceful Void Lake and headed outside.
After passing through the fog, he would probably reach the straw hut from before.
Gu Qi watched Jiang Lan leave. Although he really wanted to ask who he was, there was no hurry.
He would definitely know once he went out.
Then, he looked at his wet clothes.
He hesitated, but didn’t try to cover it up.
Instead, he walked out.
There were many people watching outside the thatched house.
Now, the sound of the waves had disappeared.
They really wanted to know who would come out first.
Usually, whoever came first was the one who failed.
“It’s without a doubt that the senior brother from the First Summit will definitely win.”
“I also think that the senior brother of the First Summit and the junior brother of the Ninth Summit are not on the same level.”
“Yes, the junior brother from the Ninth Summit will definitely head out first.”
Footsteps came from behind the thatched house.
They saw a figure walking out.
“He’s out, he’s out.”
“Whoever appears first is the loser. By the looks of it, he should be a disciple of the Ninth Summit.”
“Yes, from the looks of it, he’s indeed a disciple of the Ninth Summit.”
“We can’t be sure who it is until the last moment. And there are more than two people at the lake.”
Everyone was looking at that figure. They were all very curious as to who he was.
After all, some people had secretly made bets.
The figure became clearer.
Jiang Lan walked out of the fog and appeared beside the straw hut.
There was an uproar after Jiang Lan appeared.
“Didn’t I say that it will be the junior brother of the Ninth Summit? The senior brother of the First Summit will definitely win.”
“Looks like this junior brother is the one who lost. However, you can’t blame him. After all, the First Summit’s senior brother is too outstanding.”
“That’s right. Although the junior brother of the Ninth Summit has an extraordinary temperament, how can the senior brother of the First Summit be compared to this person?”
“Even though he lost, it was still an honorable defeat. The senior brother of the First Summit is still the best.”
“He’s completely defeated. However, they’re technically from two different worlds. There’s nothing else to say about that.”
Jiang Lan didn’t pay any attention to these people. He walked up to the senior and bowed respectfully.
“Thank you for your help, Senior.”
“Go back. Your Master has been waiting for a long time.” The Ancient Wine Daoist looked at Jiang Lan and said.
“Yes,” Jiang Lan replied.
Then, he turned around and left.
It was time to go back and enter seclusion. His gains this time were not small.
The only pity was that the Peaceful Void Lake was not on the Great Dao.
He could not sign in again.
He had yet to encounter a second path of the Great Dao.
Jiang Lan left, but the others didn’t.
“Alright, the one who failed has left. The senior brother from the First Summit should be coming out, right?”
“Let’s ask Senior Brother how he did it.”
“Senior Brother might not say it. But if he does, we will benefit greatly.”
“But it’s good to see Senior Brother’s heroic bearing.”
“Look, he’s coming out.”
At this moment, all of them looked behind the straw hut.
At this moment, a figure walked out.
All of them were looking forward to seeing the victor.
The Ancient Wine Daoist drank his wine and shook his head.
He remained quiet.
The footsteps approached.
He walked out of the fog step by step.
His figure slowly became clearer.
As for those who were waiting for the First Summit’s senior brother, their expressions changed from anticipation to odd.
From odd to doubt.
Then, their expressions went from doubt to shock.
They saw that the person who had walked out was indeed the senior brother of the First Summit.
But what shocked them was that this senior brother…
His entire body…
It was wet.
