Make Bricks Without Straw
Rayleigh engulfed Jared in a hug excitedly. “You’ve done well, Jared! As long as you keep cultivating like this, Ms. Beatrice will get to see the light soon.”
“Mr. Deragon, we can’t stay here any longer. We’ll have to move to another location.”
Since the Deragons managed to find the place, Jared knew it was impossible for Rayleigh to continue secluding himself in Horington for retirement. They needed to move to another location as soon as possible.
“Where are we going?” Rayleigh asked.
“To the Medicine God Sect.”
At the moment, Jared reckoned that the safest place would be the Medicine God Sect.
After leaving Tommy and Phoenix to take over Horington-related affairs, Jared brought Rayleigh, Josephine, and the rest to the Medicine God Sect.
As Josephine, Lizbeth, and Lyanna were injured, they could recover at the Medicine God Sect with peace of mind.
When Jared and his group arrived at the Medicine God Sect, Axton immediately arranged for treatment for Josephine and the rest.
Meanwhile, Rayleigh retrieved the invitation to the Trial and handed it over to Jared.
“Jared, the Trial this time will be more dangerous than the previous ones. So watch your back.”
Rayleigh looked at Jared with concern.
“Don’t worry, Mr. Deragon. I’m stronger now. None of the younger generations can beat me. Besides, I have my official identity. They won’t dare to make a move against me so brazenly.” Jared reached for the invitation as he assured confidently.
Letting out a sigh, Rayleigh replied, “You’re still wet behind the ears. The martial arts world is more complicated than you think. In any case, just be careful.”
He then gave Jared’s shoulder a few pats.
“Got it. Please help me keep an eye on Josephine and the rest.”
With that, Jared left the Medicine God Sect and rushed toward Jadeborough.
There was another day left before the Trial, so Jared had to pick up his pace in order to reach there in time.
Meanwhile, at the Deragon residence.
It was a day before the Trial, and every Sect and family in Jadeborough were making their final preparations. The Trial venue this time was at the thousands of years old Emperor’s Mausoleum. No one knew the danger or the magical items within.
However, it was common knowledge that numerous traps would be embedded within the Emperor’s Mausoleum. Everyone knew the higher the risk, the larger the profit.
“Edgar, your abilities have improved considerably since the last time I saw you.”
Ryker looked at Edgar with pride.
“It was all thanks to my mentor’s teachings, Dad. He had planned to have me focused on cultivation so that I could reach the Top Level Martial Arts Grandmaster after the new year celebration. But my return might have caused some delay to that plan,” Edgar explained.
“My silly son, the Trial this time will be held at the Emperor’s Mausoleum that’s thousands of years old. There’ll be an abundance of magical items and resources within. Once our family has obtained all these, I’ll use all these resources to elevate your level to Top Level Martial Arts Grandmaster as quickly as possible. Who knows, you might even reach the level of Martial Arts Marquis. Imagine, a Martial Arts Marquis at your age, you’ll be the first in history,” Ryker promised Edgar.
“Don’t worry, Dad. As long as I participate in the Trial, all the magical items and resources will fall into the Deragons’ hands,” Edgar replied with confidence and arrogance.
He did have the right to be arrogant. After all, he was already a Seventh Level Martial Arts Grandmaster at a young age. Not many cultivators could reach his level despite decades of cultivation. Moreover, his capabilities were on par with some of the heads of Sects or families.
“Since you said so, I’ll leave everything in your capable hands then.” Ryker laughed.
Godrick, who stood at the side, lowered his head slightly. His current abilities were still far beneath Edgar’s. Even though he had the talent, he lacked the necessary resources. It was like making bricks without straw.
Besides, Edgar was given the resources of the entire Deragon family. That was the reason why he could break through each level so swiftly.
“Godrick, are we still unable to reach Enoch and the other guardians?” Ryker turned to Godrick and asked.
“Not yet, Mr. Deragon,” Godrick answered softly.
