“If you don’t talk about this, we can still be good friends.
” “Hahahaha…” Old Monk Fa Zheng laughed out loud.
He had an easy-going personality.
Although he was much older, he was able to have fun with Ye Xiao.
The other martial arts experts from the Shaolin Martial Academy also noticed the two of them, especially that lesser divine grandmaster.
He swept a glance at Ye Xiao, and his eyes revealed some surprise.
Why did that kid give him a feeling that he could not see through him? At first glance, there seemed to be something.
However, at a second glance, there did not seem to be anything.
He was just an ordinary person.

COM Thinking about it carefully, there should not be any problems.
He had cultivated for more than 100 years and was already a lesser divine grandmaster.
In the entire world, very few people would be able to reach that level of cultivation even if they spent their entire lives.
He was just a child.
What could be special about him? He could not possibly be a martial artist of the divine sect, right? That would be too laughable.
In that world, there was no way martial arts experts who could reach the divine sect within 100 years be inferior to that child, right? Shaking his head, he walked forward.
“Fa Zheng, this is the youth with a good temperament that you spoke of?” Fa Zheng nodded and introduced them with a smile.
“Guang Liang, this is the Ye Xiao that I told you about previously.
This child has a good temperament and is very suitable to enter my sect.
Other than being a little foodie, he doesn’t have any other greed.
” Guang Liang nodded.
“Nowadays, Buddhists are no longer afraid of appetite, and this isn’t considered a flaw.
In the path of Buddhism, the most important thing is the word ‘fate’.
For Fa Zheng to take a fancy to you, it can be considered that the two of you are fated.
Can you consider joining my Shaolin?” Ye Xiao was stunned.
Were all Buddhists so persistent in recruiting people? He shook his head.
“Thank you for your kindness, Master.
I don’t have such a plan to do so.
” Guang Liang nodded.

COM “I won’t force you.
However, if one day you change your mind, we Buddhists will always open our doors to welcome you.
” “Thank you.
” Ouyang Yunzhong walked over and looked at Ye Xiao with some regret.
Then, she said, “Master Guang Liang, I’ve already prepared a banquet.
Please come in.
” Guang Liang nodded and everyone quickly entered the hotel.
Ye Xiao did not want to get involved with everyone and walked at the back.
However, at that moment, he suddenly felt that there was something strange behind him.
He turned around and took a look.
In the air, there was a faint and inaudible killing intent.
The killing intent within the seal spread.
However, it was still far from breaking the seal.
Ye Xiao scanned it and found that the other party’s cultivation should be around the cultivation of a Xiantian seventh-grade divine grandmaster.
At first glance, that cultivation did not seem very strong.
However, in reality, Ye Xiao could sense that the aura was not complete.
In other words, it was the same as King El.
It was a star beast that had been split up.
After King El was split up, the cultivation of his avatar was only that of a great grandmaster.
That clone itself was a divine grandmaster.
How strong was its true cultivation? Looks like it was another ruthless character.
It was to be expected as that world was still too dangerous.
He should work harder to improve himself.
He had decided to read another hour of books every day in the future.
No, two hours! After that, Ye Xiao followed everyone and walked into the hotel.
Only two great sect martial artists were left outside, guarding a few cars.
When everything was quiet, a weak and evil thought slowly seeped out from the sealed metal box.
‘Foolish human, you actually cut a part of me and brought me out of Shaolin.
‘You want me to be the core of this city and absorb spiritual energy? ‘How ridiculous.
‘A mere small city is worthy of me being the core? ‘Not to mention that there are no divine grandmasters, even if there are divine sect martial artists, what is there for me to be afraid of? ‘However, this is also a good opportunity for me to break out of the human seal.
‘Feel the pain, lowly human.
’ In the next moment, that thought suddenly surged into the body of one of the great grandmaster monks.
The great grandmaster’s body trembled slightly, and his face began to twist.
However, he quickly returned to normal.
Nevertheless, the evil smile on his lips and the bloodthirsty evil aura in his pupils indicated that he was no longer a Shaolin martial arts expert.
From the corner of his eye, he glanced at the Shaolin grandmaster on the other side.
An aura began to gather in his palm.
However, he had not expected that his opponent’s perception was very sharp.
The moment he attacked, the other sensed something and immediately looked at him.
“Fa Neng, are you alright? Why is your spiritual energy out of control?” Fa Neng’s expression changed slightly, and he immediately withdrew the spiritual energy in his palm.
It’s probably because I’m about to advance soon.
The spiritual energy in my body is always a little hard to control.
” Another great grandmaster revealed an envious expression.
“As expected of you.
Back then, it took me a very long time to advance to Xiantian fifth grade.
I didn’t expect that you would advance again so soon after just entering Xiantian fourth grade.
” “Senior, you flatter me.
It’s all thanks to the good teachings of the masters.
Oh right, Senior, why don’t you go eat first? I’ll take care of everything here.
” “There’s no need.
Eating is just a matter of courtesy.
At our grandmaster rank, it doesn’t matter even if we don’t eat for half a year.
“If you want to eat, you can go in.
I’ll take care of everything here.
” “Alright then.
I’ll go take a look around to prevent any star beasts or beastmen from coming over to cause trouble.
” “That’s good too.
Take care of yourself.
” Fa Neng replied and quickly disappeared from the spot.
‘This fellow’s cultivation is a little high.
The great grandmaster that I invaded is only at Xiantian fourth grade, a level lower than him.
‘Moreover, I’ve only just invaded his soul, so I haven’t completely controlled it yet.
If he were to be disturbed by external forces, it would be very easy for him to suppress my mental energy.
‘Then, my plan will fail.
‘I’d better quickly devour and control his soul.
‘This way, when they seal me and send me underground in Jianghai city, I’ll take the opportunity to launch an attack.
I’ll definitely be able to create an unexpected effect.
’ … On the other side, after the library representatives and Shaolin’s group had their dinner, the lesser divine grandmaster, Guang Liang, and Director Ouyang opened a separate room.
They were probably discussing some important matters.
The other library staff was responsible for receiving the other Shaolin martial artists.
Ye Xiao was naturally responsible for his old acquaintance, Fa Zheng.
The two of them leaned against the window and looked at the scenery outside the hotel.
Fa Zheng said with a faint smile, “Mr.
Ye, I’m afraid you didn’t eat happily today.
” Ye Xiao only smiled, but he was very speechless in his heart.
In fact, when he was at the entrance of the hotel and heard that the lesser divine grandmaster, Guang Liang, said that the Buddhist sect no longer held back their appetite, he had already vaguely guessed something.
However, he had not expected that they were in actuality, so savage.
The monks nowadays not only ate meat, but they also ate abalone, lobsters, and everything under the sun… What happened to the rules and regulations? However, thinking about it carefully, the Buddhist sect did not develop in the past because these rules were too complicated.
If you said that you could cultivate with a clear mind and not allow people to eat meat, many people would not be able to bear it.
Their bodies had a need for protein.
Not everyone could be like the Dharma and become an ascetic monk.
Now, they were allowed to eat meat.
It was said that they were also allowed to marry and find a partner, so many people wanted to become a monk.
If it were not for the rules of the nine provinces, which required a high diploma to become a monk and also required an examination to be accepted, it was estimated that the disciples of Shaolin could account for more than half of the world’s martial arts! The benefits were good and the treatment was high.
They could basically do what ordinary people could do.
It was impossible for them not to develop well.
Ye Xiao looked at the convoy below and said calmly, “Oh right, did your Shaolin companions come to deliver books this time?” Fa Zheng nodded.
“Yes, they sent some books.
They were all copied by my Shaolin disciples, and they are pretty good cultivation techniques.
“In addition, I will also be working at the Jianghai Martial Arts Academy for a period of time.
The Jianghai Martial Arts Academy will open a separate faculty and give it to our Shaolin branch.
Our Shaolin will be in charge of teaching martial arts.
” It was very normal for Shaolin to teach martial arts.
Ye Xiao was not surprised because teaching martial arts did not mean that one would become a Shaolin disciple.
If one wanted to become a Shaolin disciple, one would need the recommendation of a Shaolin eminent monk or go through the unified examination of the nine provinces.
Teaching martial arts was a Shaolin tradition.
It could also be considered as indirectly looking for some genius disciples.
If there were people with good qualifications, they would recommend them and they would be qualified to join Shaolin.
Regarding that point, the nine provinces did not have any rigid requirements.
After all, Shaolin imparting martial arts to the vast majority of people was beneficial to the entire nine provinces.
It was also possible to take a small number of people as disciples.
As long as they were not forced.
Both sides could be considered to have taken what they needed.
The reason why Shaolin was able to obtain the support of the nine provinces was also because of their dedication.
“That’s quite good.
It’s also a good thing to contribute to the martial arts heritage of the human race and nurture the disciples of others.
” “That being said, this penniless monk stayed here not only because of this matter.
There’s also another matter.
It’s because our Shaolin wants to suppress the clone of a powerful star beast in Jianghai city and set up a spirit gathering array in order to increase the spiritual energy in the city.
” “Isn’t bad for you to tell me such a secret?” “That’s nothing.
There are too many such things in the nine provinces.
As long as you don’t go out and publicize it, it’s fine.
“Furthermore, I believe that with your personality, you won’t go to the extent of being so nosy.
” Ye Xiao smiled, and Fa Zheng spoke again, “The star beast sealed this time is very strong.
It’s a peak-stage divine sect star beast’s clone.
Although it’s only a clone, its cultivation is also at the divine sect level, and it has the strength of a Xiantian seventh-grade martial artist.
“Therefore, we still can not underestimate it.
“Our Shaolin, apart from Guang Liang, who specializes in arrays, has also sent out 18 great grandmasters, including me, to set up an array together.
” “It’s very important! What is this star beast that’s so powerful?”
