The Strongest System - chapter-139
Lin Fan knew why they did not want to let him go. What else could it be
other than the fear of him getting harmed?
Possessing ‘Pills Through Thought’…any sect which had this would
definitely care for it beyond anything else. Why would they risk letting
him go out? If anything untoward were to happen, it would be a great loss
for the sect.
Grand Master Yan did not say anything. He was observing Lin Fan silently.
Lin Fan stepped forward, his face resolute as clasped his fists, “I am
very grateful for Grand Master and fellow Senior Elders’ grace for
saving me. Hence, I was able to survive and live on from the giant
calamity previously. But I’ve been in the sect for countless months,
and I’ve yet to contribute anything. Now that the chance has been put
before me, I ask for your blessings and hope you may grant me this
“Junior Brother, that’s not right. You’ve done us great credit in
helping the outer sect disciples to cultivate pills. How can you say that
you’ve done nothing? Furthermore, the journey out there is fraught with
dangers, perhaps even fatal ones. It’s better if you stay within the
sect.” Danding Peak’s Senior Elder voiced out.
Lin Fan was relentless. He would not let it go just like this, “A lesser
celestial beast is far from ordinary. There’s a huge chance that our
disciples heading there would just be slain by it instead. If I was
giving them support by cultivating pills for them, perhaps I can even
help save more of our disciples. I ask for your blessings in granting me
“This…” The Senior Elders looked at Grand Master helplessly. They did
not know what else they could say.
While what Lin Fan said was full of righteousness and devotion, he was
not wrong. They acknowledged the fact he pointed out that if he were to
join the team and cultivate pills from the back…with that godly skill
of his, perhaps he might be able to save many disciples.
The expedition this time round was far from ordinary. While there was the
aim of killing the lesser celestial beast, the main aim was also to train
and toughen up the sect’s disciples.
In the previous forbidden grounds’ expedition, Glory Sect had suffered
huge losses. Especially the loss of an inner sect genius was more than
enough to let the masses feel disheartened.
While this Junior Brother’s cultivation base might not be that high,
his pill cultivation skills were top tier. To the sect, this was
Looking at the hesitant faces of the masses, Lin Fan pushed on even more
determinedly, “The forbidden grounds expedition has caused our sect great
losses. We lost face in front of all the other major sects. For this
Floating Snow Peaks expedition, I MUST make use of my pill cultivating
skills to let our disciples display even greater ferocity and vitality.
The other sects must see Glory Sect’s prowess with their own eyes! I
plead for your blessings!”
They were in an even bigger dilemma now. What Lin Fan said now was
extremely true as well. Glory Sect did lose face during the last
expedition, and became the laughing stock of many sects. Not only did
they retrieve nothing from the previous expedition, but they also lost an
extremely talented disciple for nothing.
That was an immense loss.
If Lin Fan were to head there with the inner sect disciples, perhaps they
could truly regain that face and reputation of Glory Sect.
But it was just that…the more they thought, the more undecided they
‘Pills Through Thought’ was a pill cultivating talent which the world
had not seen for thousands of years. If they were to lose him by any
accident at Floating Snow Peaks, that would be more than just a simple
loss of two geniuses in two expeditions.
“Yes, you may go. But you’re not allowed to use ‘Pills Through
Thought’ in front of any outsiders.” Grand Master Yan spoke with a
twinkle in his eyes.
‘This guy is far from simple. I wonder what’s his motive for fighting
so fervently to head out for. But as long as he’s heading out with our
sect, I doubt it can be anything bad. Well, on the path of cultivation,
naturally one has to be fierce and vigorous. A flower within a greenhouse
easily withers. One can definitely not train to be anything great if
cooped within comfortable shelters.’ Grand Master Yan thought.
“Master…this…!” The Senior Elders echoed in disbelief. They had not
expected the Grand Master to agree.
Lin Fan leaped with joy in his heart, “Don’t worry, master. I will
definitely not reveal ‘Pills Through Thought’ in front of any of
“Yes, and also, in the expedition this time round, you are not to make
any contact with any of the other sects. Do keep that in mind.” Grand
Master Yan warned again.
“Yes.” Lin Fan was happier by the second. He had not expected to convince
them this easily.
The Senior Elders present were unable to make a decision initially.
Hence, they followed along with the Grand Master’s will.
“Junior Brother, please head up to Danding Peak later on and pick up some
medicinal herbs you may require for the expedition, just in case you need
them later on.” Danding Peak’s Senior Elder offered.
“Thank you, Senior Brother.” Lin Fan was touched. He had stolen all of
Danding Peak’s business back at Nameless Peak, but senior brother was
still so generous. One would have to be stonehearted not to be touched.
But to someone of Senior Elder’s generation, it did not matter anymore
as to who was stronger or weaker. All they cared about was for the sect
to flourish. Even if Danding Peak were to disband, it wouldn’t cause
any big difference in the grand picture.
Indeed, one’s perspective of things changed as one progressed upwards
After Lin Fan left…
“Master, are you truly allowing him to go along with the inner sect?”
Senior Elder Wuya asked questioningly.
“Yes. Ever since he was here, I’ve been observing him from the dark
from time to time. While he is cheeky and mischievous, his loyalty to
Glory Sect is certain. Since he wants to explore the world outside, I
definitely can’t keep him in here just because he has mastered ‘Pills
Through Thought’.” Recalling Lin Fan’s various antics on the Nameless
Peak, Grand Master Yan heaved a sigh of helplessness as well.
And what amazed Grand Master Yan further was the fact that Lin Fan was
actually able to help restructure someone’s cultivation foundation.
Now, THAT was pretty unimaginable.
“But what if there’s danger?” Elder Senior of Zhongtian Peak asked.
“Doesn’t matter. I’ve made plans.” Grand Master Yan replied calmly.
“I guess this is good as well. After all, if nothing untoward were to
happen, this man would definitely be the leader of Glory Sect for the
generation.” Senior Elder Wuya had high regards for Lin Fan.
“Senior Brother Wuya, isn’t that evaluation way too excessive? Within
the next generation of inner circle disciples, there are many talented
geniuses as well.” Senior Elder Yan Zhanwen laughed.
He did not agree completely with the words of Senior Brother Wuya.
“Junior Brother, just wait and see.” Wuya smiled gently without naming
All the Senior Elders present laughed heartily. As to who was going to be
the next leader, it did not matter to them. They had no personal agendas.
As long as Glory Sect was to live through the ages and flourish, that was
the best they could hope for.
On the way back, Lin Fan hummed happily. This feeling was good, too good.
He had not expected everything to go so smoothly. Based on that charisma
of his, along with some skillful acting, he bought over those Senior
Elders in an instant.
And now, he was heading to the direction of Danding Peak. Since the
Senior Elder had already said so, he was free to head up to pick up
Back in the past, he had to do it sneakily and stealthily. But now, he
could do it righteously and gloriously. The difference was definitely
When Lin Fan reached Danding Peak, those disciples in charge of the outer
quarters scrambled as far as they could from him, like rats scurrying
back to their nests.
Lin Fan left a deep impression on them. This was a crafty and despicable
fellow who caused their outer quarters’ disciples to have no customers
left at all.
Nowadays, no disciples would head up to Danding Peak for pills. Even
after their Senior Elder’s scoldings and the fact that they stopped
charging fees for cultivating pills, the result was the same.
Back then, it was ten sets of ingredients for one serving, but now, it
was five for one.
Even more so for lower graded pills, they needed to produce one serving
for every two sets.
For the Danding Peak outer quarters disciples, these requirements were
way too strict.
Li Shun was the one who had it worst. In the past, he could still cut
some slack while cultivating pills. But now, he had to use his utmost
Else, if the pills cultivation failed, he would have to shoulder the
And all this was caused by that ba*tard from Nameless Peak.
“Senior Brother Li! Not good! The ba*tard from Nameless Peak is here!”
Just then, a shout of horror came from outside his house.
Li Shun stood up immediately with eyes opened wide. In fact, they were
filled with rage as he stomped his feet and rushed out of the house.
