at he found the most pleasing to the eyes and walked in.

Less than an hour later, he walked out of the mining hole, looking unnatural.

This mining hole was very normal and not the one that he was looking for.

After placing a secret mark that was neither too big nor small on that mining hole, he entered another mining hole and continued exploring.



After that horse carriage left Tianqing County, it headed all the way north without any delays on the road.
Therefore, it soon left Tianqing County’s area and approached Wei Prefecture's capital.
But it did not plan on wasting time there either.
After stopping for a bit, they continued northward.

The horse carriage galloped on the official road without any bumpy feeling.

As for demons, they actually encountered more than one.
It was just that Lin Yuan already killed them before they got close to the horse carriage.

As a true-blue Bitter Sea cultivator, Lin Yuan virtually would not encounter any troublesome matter within the borders of the Great Liang Dynasty.

These demons were not his match at all.

Except, everything had an except.
When the horse carriage rode out of Wei Prefecture's borders and reached Liu Prefecture, the horse carriage suffered a demon attack.

The horse carriage was parked overnight in the fields at that time.
There was clear weather with a bright moon.
It was rare to see such weather before entering early spring.

Hence, Lin Yuan who was in the mood borrowed the moonlight and started teaching on a large rock that was by the side.
However, this place was not the Divine Capital's Xie Clan's private school.
There were not that many Xie Clan descendants respectfully listening to him teach here.
There was just one Xie Boyue who was tired until he could not open his eyes.
Both hands supported his head which was still swaying.

Lin Yuan was in the mood to enjoy himself at that time, so he did not care about whether or not this disciple of his was paying attention to the lesson.
He just casually talked about some principles in the sages' books.

But halfway through, Lin Yuan suddenly remembered a certain fellow back then.
On the first day he entered the academy, he questioned that academy dean whose status was god knows how high at the top of his voice: can one really do something for the common people under the heavens after reading finish these sages' books?

At that time, all of the students thought that the guy had lost his mind.
He might even have been directly expelled from the academy because of this rash action.
But in the end, the dean just glanced at him and did not say anything.
That question was naturally unanswered as well.

Just as Lin Yuan who thought of this was about to sigh with vicissitudes of emotion, a gust of demonic wind suddenly howled between heaven and earth!

Lin Yuan suddenly stood up.
His blue long robes were already fluttering heavily in the wind at this moment.

Seeing this scene, Xie Boyue who was no longer drowsy gave a look at Lin Yuan.
Then, he looked over to the horse carriage with worry.
Xie Nandu was still in the carriage.

“Get over there, don't let anything happen to Miss.”

Lin Yuan's expression was solemn.
Immediately after, he started laughing, “A fourth realm demon dares to show yourself so brazenly within the borders of the Great Liang Dynasty.
Do you really want to die?”

A voice sounded out in the dark rather hoarsely, “Leave behind what's in the carriage and I'll let you go!”

Hearing this, Xie Boyue who had just arrived next to the carriage furrowed his brows.
He already held immense hatred towards that demon who did not show its face.
But he still quickly lowered his voice and said as calmly as possible, “Younger Sister Nandu, don't be scared.”

There was just an 'mhm' that came from inside the carriage.

There was no panic.

Xie Boyue felt a little downcast for no reason.

But very soon, he could not care about this anymore.
Because a moment later, he saw his teacher who was usually even-tempered leap up and hovered in the air, and said something extremely domineering.

“Trifling demon! Since you came, leave your head behind!”

Of course, what was even more domineering was that after that, Xie Boyue saw his teacher display his skills here.
It was an extremely exciting battle.

After that, the dust settled.
Although he failed to kill that demon, he successfully repelled it.

At that moment, Xie Boyue already held 120% admiration for his teacher.

He specially ran in front of his teacher and told him his feelings to his face.

In the end, Lin Yuan looked at him and exposed it without the slightest courtesy, “Are you this happy because you feel that I protected Miss?”

Xie Boyue who was still considered steadfast previously turned slightly red.
He could only smile after his thoughts were exposed.

Lin Yuan let out a sigh.
Some things actually did not need to be said, but everyone knew.
Xie Boyue was just a concubine's descendant.
Furthermore, he was a bastard with slightly above-average aptitude.
Barring no accidents, it would be impossible for him to become a great cultivator in his lifetime.
While that young girl in the carriage had long already proven that her future was bright.

Was there any possibility between the two?


If love was an impossibility, it would be better to nip it in the bud.

But, Lin Yuan who had thought a lot just let out a sigh in the end.
He patted his disciple's shoulder and did not lay it bare.

When he arrived at the carriage, Xie Nandu already lifted the curtains and walked out without waiting for Lin Yuan to speak.

Xie Nandu took the initiative to say, “It's a shame that I didn't get to see Mr.
Lin's grandeur.”

Lin Yuan was taken aback.
Then he smiled slightly and shook his head, “There's no grandeur.
I believe that in a few years' time, Miss' splendor would far surpass me.”

Xie Nandu smiled slightly and did not harp on this.
She just arrived at the large rock with Lin Yuan where Xie Boyue already started a fire.

After sitting down, Xie Nandu asked, “I heard that Mr.
Lin was once an academy student too.
Can you tell me about the academy?”

Lin Yuan glanced at Xie Boyue and heaved a sigh.
Having a disciple who easily sold his teacher was not necessarily a good thing.

He nodded his head.
After Xie Nandu went to the Divine Capital, she was destined to not remain in the Xie Clan to cultivate.
It was very likely that she would be entering the academy to study.
It was also reasonable that this young girl who was born in White Deer's Xie Clan wanted to take precautions.

It was just that when he really wanted to speak, Lin Yuan seemed to have discovered that he did not know where to start talking about that academy.

The holy land in the hearts of all intellectuals under the heavens?

Only after musing for a long time, did Lin Yuan slowly say, “A hundred-year dynasty, a thousand-year family.
Also, the foreign cultivator sects and cultivators who had always been around.
The great Liang Dynasty only established its kingdom for 200 over years, but cultivators who are headed by the three sects already existed generation after generation, year after year.
As one of the three sects, confucianism is the only lineage of cultivators out of the three sects that peeled away and really landed in the secular world.
And the academy was established by that sage at that time.”
