Chapter 372: Movement
Translator: Mercurial_ Editor: DarkGem
What concerned Zheng Quan, he was the cornerstone of his faction, so he had no choice other than to go attracting people to strengthen it. Clearly, he attached great importance to what he had created.
He also valued the friendships and connections formed in the fifteenth residential area because he had decided to use this area as the foundation of his abrupt rise in establishing himself in the Origin World.
But Luo Honghua was different. Although Zheng Quan was quite concerned about the beautiful Wang Yan being interested in a ‘native’ of the Origin World, but he could accept that. Compared to the broader picture and his future, what was a woman? Even if Wang Yan had extremely high status in their plane, being one of the seven princesses, he could still let it go.
Because in his eyes, the native with the name Li Yunmu was pretty strong.
This young man had kept a low profile and efficiently occupied the fiftieth room, holding onto it with stability. In the fifteenth residential area, there were rumors that Li Yunmu’s strength was sufficient to occupy one of the first thirty rooms.
But in Zheng Quan’s eyes, not only did he possess the strength to occupy one of the front thirty rooms, he had the potential to reach the top ten. However, he only had the potential, not the strength.
Zheng Quan believed that as long as Li Yunmu was provided with enough resources and time to cultivate, then when he established his foundation, he would possess the strength to challenge the masters of the front ten rooms.
Therefore, Zheng Quan had decided long ago that he had to carefully pull this rather promising native to his side. Besides, he was quite certain it would work out because of all of them coming from the same place.
Because of those thoughts, he could tolerate and even instigate contact between Wang Yan and Li Yunmu to pull him into his faction.
When speaking of coming from the same origins, the person which Zheng Quan wanted to pull into his faction the most was Pan Shan.
This person from a fishermen village of Azure Dragon Isle had extraordinary constitution. Before even becoming a physical flux expert, he already possessed the strength of thirty-two oxen.
If Zheng Quan was able to rope him in, he would have gotten himself a valiant general in the future.
But unfortunately, not only did he have extraordinary constitution, but also possessed a keen intuition. He could sense that Zheng Quan wasn’t an honest person, and on top of that was slowly pulled away by Suo Lei.
By then, Zheng Quan had almost given up on them.
“Hmph, this Li Yunmu is really arrogant. He always makes our Wang Yan go and call him, but until now he hasn’t even showed his shadow.”
Although Luo Honghua was stubborn, she clearly understood Zheng Quan’s thought process.
Strength was the final decision making factor in every case. Zheng Quan possessed higher strength and more tricks than her, so she didn’t dare to be too excessive. However, her thoughts were still focused on pulling Wang Yan away from Li Yunmu.
Hearing her words, two of the fourteen people knitted their brows.
“Where has Sister Yan gone?” one of the flux experts asked with anger on his face.
“Where else could she have gone? She once more went to that Li Yunmu’s room at dawn.”
Luo Honghua continued with her schemes and added oil to the fire.
The enquiring flux expert couldn’t help but stamp heavily on the tile below his feet which crushed it to pieces.
“Someone occupying only the fiftieth room. Outrageous.”
But he didn’t continue to show his anger. Although he was one of the few people who owned a room in the front thirty, he didn’t want to create internal strife in the faction at such a critical juncture.
He knew that today’s mission was very important for Zheng Quan. As if called by her nam, Wang Yan returned at that moment.
She was wearing a light yellow long skirt. When she came, as gentle and beautiful as ever, the eyes of the majority of males all lit up.
It was hard to find a noble who would accept close relations with barbarians. But this beautiful noble had such a benevolent temperament that she accepted all barbarians as friends.
Thus, the majority of flux experts and physical flux experts roped by Zheng Quan were extremely attracted towards Wang Yan. As for Luo Honghua, although she was also a noble, her temperament and boorish appearance wasn’t to anyone’s taste.
“I am sorry to keep everyone waiting. Elder Brother Yunmu remains in seclusion, having gotten stuck due to some urgent matter. He asked us to go first and not wait for him; he will meet us on the isle,” Wang Yan said in a apologetic tone.
But her genuine apology and defense of Li Yunmu caused many people in the faction to become jealous.
“Since he isn’t coming, we should leave first.”
Acting as the leader, Zheng Quan had remained a spectator throughout the conversations. Thus, he was the most clear about the general situation and immediately issued the order to set off, seeing that his small faction might get embroiled in an internal strife if they delayed.
Before setting off, he gave a warning glance to Luo Honghua.
Damn it, women are the most unreasonable creatures.
In his heart, Zheng Quan was already getting fed up with Luo Honghua’s tactics. Just because she couldn’t control her desires, that damned woman had surprisingly tried to break his rule by inciting the people of their faction against Li Yunmu. This made Zheng Quan extremely angry.
He began to dislike her even more than Wang Yan who couldn’t control her attraction towards Li Yunmu. After all, she was someone who wasn’t under his control and did not follow his orders. It had to be dealt with, even if she was a descender.
Seeing the vague warning glance from Zheng Quan, Luo Honghua shuddered.
For some reason, she had become increasingly more terrified of her somewhat frightening descender companion. After descending, he had changed and become even more frightening, regardless if it was in terms of strength or temperament.
Soon, with Zheng Quan as the lead, their group which comprised of twenty-three people started their journey. They appeared to be a group of ordinary disciples starting their journey to complete a mission for the sect.
Apart from the fifteen core members, there were eight new members who were being tested. Zheng Quan was cultivating those eight newcomers as reserve strength. The reason why they had been allowed on the journey this time was actually to act as guard and carry out the miscellaneous tasks.
It was clear that even before descending, Zheng Quan and his group had a powerful background who had prepared many trump cards and wealth for them.
Although Zheng Quan wasn’t as wealthy as Li Yunmu, he could still be considered quite wealthy among the impoverished newcomers of Blue Moon Island, once he sold some of his treasures and resources.
A large boat which was more than three meters long was waiting at the internal port of Blue Moon Island. Once their party stepped on it, it quickly rushed into the distance.
Cloud Island was another one of the smaller islands in the vicinity of Blue Moon Sect. It wasn’t the group’s final destination, but the isle closest to their goal, the uninhibited primitive island. Zheng Quan’s plan was to first make thorough preparations and accumulate supplies, while Wang Yan only thought about Li Yunmu timely reaching their meeting point so she could see him again.
