The day for the Liuyan Mountain team to visit was set.
The inner and outer disciples were also warned to cause less trouble, make less of a fuss, and refrain from any behavior that would bring shame.
Xuanling Sect was considered a major faction in the eastern part of Qingzhou and held a place in the Qingzhou cultivation world; they couldn’t afford to be looked down upon by the barbarians coming from the west.
After activating the “Cultivation Cheat Finger (Persecution Edition),” Tang Xin pondered for a moment.
To gain enough points in just a few days, it wasn’t enough to persecute just one or two people; more disciples had to be involved.
Although the chief disciple had the authority to supervise, she was still a disciple after all and couldn’t overstep her bounds by arbitrarily ordering her peers around.
For this reason, she specifically sought out the great elder Xuan Miao.
“You want to conduct special training for some disciples who aren’t serious about their cultivation,” Elder Xuan Miao said, “The idea is good, but won’t it affect your own cultivation?”
“I don’t mind sacrificing a bit personally,” Tang Xin patted her chest and said, “I just don’t want Xuanling Sect to lose face in front of outsiders!”
“You…” Seeing such a chief disciple wholeheartedly devoted to the sect, Elder Xuan Miao was somewhat moved and said, “The sect leader’s decision to choose you as the chief disciple was indeed a wise one!”
“Thank you for the compliment, Elder,” Tang Xin paused, then changed the subject and continued, “But don’t be too happy too soon, Elder. The special training for the disciples will increase your workload, and you’ll have to face it with an even more diligent attitude.”
Elder Xuan Miao’s moved expression froze on her face.
How could she have forgotten about this?!
The disciple competition, Liuyan Mountain’s visit, taking on new apprentices, and now special training… Had she been too busy lately?
Also, she hadn’t noticed before, but how could Tang Xin be so sharp-tongued?
【Current Persecution Points: 90】
While Elder Xuan Miao was at a loss for words, Shui Qiu, who had heard of Tang Xin’s arrival, excitedly rushed in.
“Sister Tang Xin!”
Having not seen her for a few days, Shui Qiu had already changed into the Xuanling Sect’s Taoist robe. The fire attribute qi within her had been cleared out by the great elder, and she looked lively and ethereal, like a water fairy.
Freed from the troubles of the inferior Fire Attribute technique, her talent had already begun to show some promise. Elder Xuan Miao was in the process of selecting a suitable Water Attribute technique for her, hoping to lay a solid foundation.
According to the memories of her past life that had been triggered, when the chief disciple of the Xuanling Sect brought Shui Qiu back to the sect, she hadn’t noticed anything special about her. It wasn’t until the later sect competition, where she and Su Ling both shone brilliantly, that she caught everyone’s attention.
Next, following the antagonist’s line of thinking, it was naturally, “How dare she be more outstanding than me,” “Pretending to be nice to everyone to win over the disciples,” “Hypocritical, ugly woman,” her jealousy exploding, targeting her at every turn.
And then, Shui Qiu, who was once a naive girl that would even invite others to bathe with her, was targeted and bullied into becoming the cold and ruthless “Fairy of Autumn Water.”
Tang Xin, of course, had no intention of punishing her by making her stand on the Cliff of Reflection to face the wind, locking her in a dark room to be frightened, or pouring ice water over her head.
But the points that should be taken, still had to be taken.
“It’s been a few days…”
Tang Xin stared at the blue-eyed girl who looked pleased, admiring, and like a kitten wanting to come closer, and said in a deep voice.
“Did your chest get a little bigger again?”
The blue-eyed girl froze on the spot.
【Current Persecution Points: 140】
“I’m sorry,” Shui Qiu wiped away her tears and turned to run away, “I don’t deserve anything…”
Truly a main supporting character, persecuting her alone was equivalent to persecuting three or four extras.
“You’re being a bit too mean…”
Even Elder Xuan Miao couldn’t help but comment.
Having obtained permission from the Great Elder, Tang Xin randomly selected some disciples from within and outside the Xuanling Sect who were “not very dedicated to cultivation” to start what was called “Devilish Special Training.”
“Senior Sister, I’m dull-witted and don’t have the same exceptional talent as you, this special training is just…”
“Huh? Haven’t you heard that a slow bird should start flying early? Dull-witted, is it? Run thirty laps around the training ground for me, then practice the technique. If you don’t meet the requirements by the time, I’ll explode your head!”
【Persecution Points +10】
“Senior Sister, I’m so exhausted I could vomit, can we not…”
“You can, but then you can’t practice this move 500 times… I’ll give you a little break, 499 times it is!”
【Persecution Points +11】
“Senior Sister, I…”
“Anyone who talks back again, the training volume doubles!”
“I know you all are cursing me as a villain in your hearts,” Tang Xin said emotionlessly while holding a wooden stick, “It’s okay, curse all you want, I don’t care, as long as you don’t embarrass yourselves in front of others!”
With those words, the rate of point increase immediately slowed down.
It really confirms the old saying, whitewashing weakens the effect by three parts…
No matter, isn’t this just a matter of saying a few words?
“Of course, the reason why I suddenly wanted to give you all special training,” Tang Xin continued, “is also related to my recent bad mood.”
After ruthlessly harvesting points from these disciples, Tang Xin then went to the arena construction area.
The Inner Sect disciple in charge, Fang Ling, hurriedly came up to report the latest progress.
“Is this it? Are you slacking off?”
Tang Xin deliberately said so.
“I’m sorry, Senior Sister, I’ll work overtime and make sure to complete the schedule!”
Fang Ling shouted.
Huh, why didn’t I harvest any points?
“You dumb cow, you can’t even complete this simple task,” Tang Xin snorted coldly, crossing her arms, “Give me a hundred push-ups, right now, immediately!”
“Yes, Senior Sister!”
The neutral inner sect disciple didn’t say another word and immediately bent down to start doing push-ups, going up and down.
I didn’t harvest any points from this?
Why is it that when I scold her, when I’m fierce with her, I can’t harvest any points?
Wait, could it be because of my title “Sadistic Queen”? Could it be that scolding people actually brings them pleasure?
“Hold on,” Tang Xin reached out to pull her up from the ground, dusting off the dust on her sleeves with a kind face, “I’m sorry, I was in a bad mood just now, I shouldn’t have scolded you. The construction of the arena is indeed on a tight schedule, it’s normal to be a little late.”
“Se-Senior Sister,” Fang Ling, who was pulled up, trembled like a sieve, “I promise I will complete the task, please believe in me!”
The disciples nearby, hearing the conversation between the two, also buckled down and worked even harder.
“It’s okay to take a break once in a while, don’t wear yourself out… and you guys too, seeing you all tired makes me feel distressed.”
After a few days of this back and forth, Tang Xin finally managed to gather two thousand points and exchanged them for the Foundation Building Great Supplement Pill, entering a state of closed-door cultivation.
And the people from Liuyan Mountain also entered the territory of Xuanling Sect.
“So this is Xuanling Sect?” At the foot of the mountain, a young man with a flame tattoo on the back of his hand sneered, “It looks utterly vulnerable!”
