If the training field had been quiet just now…
The training field now was so quiet that one could hear a pin drop.
Even a pin drop sound on the ground could reach everyone’s ears.
There were even quite several people who felt that they were hallucinating.
“What did he just say?”
“I’m not sure. I might have heard wrongly.”
“I think I heard wrongly too.”
“He seemed to say that he does not want to be the disciple?”
One of them said timidly.
Everyone looked at Lin Qi’s indifferent expression and was certain.
They did not hallucinate.
Lin Qi did say that he didn’t want to!
Daoist Spiritual Master Yunxiao was a little awkward this time.
That was the first time such a situation had happened ever since he was a sect leader.
It was him who rejected others in the past.
Why did a disciple reject him this time?
Daoist Spiritual Master Yunxiao subconsciously thought of a possibility.
Could it be that this Lin Qi was related to one of the elders?
So Lin Qi chose to be the disciple of that elder?
Daoist Spiritual Master Yunxiao said generously when he thought of that,
“Which elder do you want to choose if that’s the case?”
Daoist Spiritual Master Yunxiao asked which elder Lin Qi was willing to choose instead of asking which elder was willing to take Lin Qi as a disciple.
After all, these two questions were different.
All the disciples looked at Lin Qi differently at once.
Everyone could see that the sect master valued Lin Qi very much.
At this moment, all the elders looked at Lin Qi with burning eyes.
Lin Qi naturally had to become a disciple of an elder since he did not want to become the disciple of the elders.
The sect master would always choose them first whenever they met someone with good aptitude and result.
It would be their turn to as elders after the sect leader chose.
How could such a situation happen that day?
Someone rejected the sect master and wanted to become a disciple of an elder.
Although Lin Qi did not explicitly say that he wanted to become an elder’s disciple, that was already the result of everyone’s tacit agreement.
Someone couldn’t say, “I don’t even want to become an elder’s disciple, I just want to be an outer disciple.”
Lin Qi looked at the Daoist Spiritual Master Yunxiao and calmly said, “I don’t even want to become an elder’s disciple, I just want to be an outer disciple.”
Lin Qi turned around and walked down the martial arts stage after saying that.
Everyone was left in a daze.
What was going on?
Lin Qi refused and became an outer disciple?
How was that possible?
A stunning and talented genius rejected the invitation of all the elders of Baiyun Sect and chose to become a puny outer disciple?
Why would anyone want to become an outer disciple after joining Baiyun Sect?
Didn’t he know that one could receive the guidance of the elders only by entering the inner sect?
One had to know that there was a huge difference between being taught by someone and not being taught by anyone, no matter how talented they are.
Although there is a saying that a master led the way into the sect, one’s cultivation depends on the individual.
But there had to be a master leading the way.
No one understood Lin Qi’s choice, but he was calm as ever.
He had already figured out the situation of the Baiyun Sect.
The cultivation techniques learned by inner and outer disciples were almost the same.
The only difference was the status and the guidance of the elders.
However, Lin Qi was only a passer-by in this world.
Lin Qi would leave after reaching a certain level of achievement.
Therefore, the status and position were nothing to him.
And guidance was even less necessary for Lin Qi.
Lin Qi was someone with a system. Did he need guidance?
However, Lin Qi wouldn’t be at a disadvantage if he joined the sect, even he had the system.
Lin Qi came to the test with such attitude.
However, Lin Qi saw the disdain on the elders’ faces.
Lin Qi’s attitude towards such elders was:
‘It’s fine if you don’t worship me!’
‘Did you despise me before?’
‘I’m sorry, I despise you now.’
‘Do you want to use the achievements of cultivating talented disciples to raise your status to the next level?’
‘I’m sorry, I, Lin Qi, am not a fool pave the road for others.’
Daoist Spiritual Master Yunxiao frowned slightly upon seeing that Lin Qi was not joking.
The Baiyun Sect had been established for thousands of years, but there had never been such a disciple.
Was that how unusually talented people act?
But, everyone saw it after all.
Although it was embarrassing to be rejected by Lin Qi.
It would be even more embarrassing if they were angry because of that.
After all, the Baiyun Sect was one of the three major sects.
It even had the vague intention of being the leader of the three major sects.
How could he become angry from embarrassment just because he was rejected?
Daoist Spiritual Master Yunxiao smiled and said in a clear voice upon thinking about that, “Since Lin Qi hasn’t made up his mind on which branch to choose, let him think about it first.”
“He can seek for any of the branches to be their disciple at any time after he has decided.”
“I’ll welcome you at any time.”
“As for now, although Lin Qi is still an outer disciple…”
Daoist Spiritual Master Yunxiao paused slightly and looked at You Yilin at that point.
You Yilin received his master’s gaze and immediately understood. He nodded and said, “This disciple understands.”
Then, You Yilin took Lin Qi away in front of everyone.
Everyone understood upon looking at the direction they were heading.
It seemed that You Yilin was going to arrange a new residence for Lin Qi.
It made sense. How could a genius like Lin Qi squeeze into the same room like everyone else?
Daoist Spiritual Master Yunxiao nodded slightly as he looked at You Yilin leaving the place.
Sure enough, a disciple should be like You Yilin.
He could understand what he meant, and every time he did it perfectly.
The depressed mood of being rejected by Lin Qi was gone in an instant.
At least he still had Yilin, the proud disciple.
Daoist Spiritual Master Yunxiao then said in a clear voice, “Today’s test ends here.”
“The disciples who pass will follow their masters from today on, while the other disciples have to practice hard and strive to pass the test next year.”
Daoist Spiritual Master Yunxiao turned to look at Zhang Wu and said, “Zhang Wu, go back with me. I will personally guide your cultivation in the future.”
Zhang Wu should have been overjoyed when he heard that previously.
However, Zhang Wu was not happy at all now.
It was because he could feel that the attitude of Daoist Spiritual Master Yunxiao towards him was no longer as warm as before.
The reason for all of that was naturally because of that damn Lin Qi.
Moreover, the other disciples there did not look envious at all even when Daoist Spiritual Master Yunxiao had personally promised to guide him in his cultivation.
Everyone was talking about Lin Qi!
“Senior Lin Qi is so powerful. I wonder how the difference between his ability and the senior’s.”
“If only I could be as powerful as Senior Lin Qi.”
“It’s decided. My aim in the future will be to be like Lin Qi and strive to catch up to him.”
Everyone’s address of Lin Qi had changed in an instant.
From junior to Senior Lin Qi!
That was also everyone’s recognition of Lin Qi.
The most eye-catching disciple this year was destined to be Lin Qi.
You Yilin gave a few words of advice and left after sending Lin Qi to his new residence.
Although You Yilin still wanted to chat with Lin Qi a little more, he was, after all, the main disciple and was usually busy.
Lin Qi sat on the bed and began to think about the competition that You Yilin had just mentioned after sending him off.
A competition between the famous sects!
