Sign-In Buddha's Palm - Chapter 91
Chapter 91: A Frog In A Well.
Edited by: Mochiusagi
At this moment, Daoist Zhang felt like an ant that’s looking up at a god.
Daoist Zhang’s consciousness soon faded and he fell to the ground.
“Many thanks Venerable.”
Abbot Hui Wen and the Court Heads could barely react amidst their shock. They faced towards the Back Mountain and bowed deeply.
After a while, all of the natural phenomenon gradually disappeared.
“The strength of the Venerable is becoming more and more unimaginable…” Abbot Hui Wen sighed softly and said with emotion.
So far, Abbot Hui Wen has seen Su Qin strike twice.
The first one was when he killed the Demon Lord and the second one today against Daoist Zhang.
If Su Qin’s first strike felt like the vast Heaven and Earth to Abbot Hui Wen.
Then now, Abbot Hui Wen feels that his strike was like an endless void that encompasses everything.
The Heavens and Earth is vast but it is still limited in the end, however the void is endless.
Of course, if you count the other times as Su Qin making a move, it is certainly more than two. For example, when he broke through the Dharma Court, rescuing Abbot Hui Wen from Cultivation Deviation, and that time with Xuan Ku.
It’s just that in the eyes of Abbot Hui Wen, these were not really ‘strikes’ per say.
The Court Heads heard this and they nodded in agreement.
The Venerable is indeed incredible. A Peak Grade 1 like Daoist Zhang can move unhindered in the world, but he didn’t even stand a chance against the Venerable.
“If it weren’t for the Venerable, we wouldn’t have been Daoist Zhang’s opponents…” The Martial Monk Court Head whispered.
Although the foundation of Shaolin Temple has greatly increased nowadays, there were two more Grade 2 Martial Artists and a Grade 1 Holy Monk like Abbot Hui Wen, along with thousands of Shaolin Temple disciples and so on.
But if they want to block Daoist Zhang, it is as difficult as heavenly ascension.
There’s a reason why a Peak Grade 1 Great Grandmaster overawes the world. It is very much superior when compared to a Grade 1 Great Grandmaster. The latter would just be suppressed by absolute strength.
Otherwise, why did the Demon Lord dare to attack the Shaolin Temple a few years ago and threatened to destroy it?
The Court Heads looked at each other and felt very grateful.
At this moment, the Disciplinary Court Head seemed to have remembered something and asked: “Abbot, what should we do about Daoist Zhang…?”
The other Court Heads and Abbot Hui Wen also remembered this problem and looked towards Daoist Zhang lying on the ground.
The Dharma Courtyard Head braced himself. He cautiously approached and took a glance, he said: “He’s not dead, he just fainted.”
The Court Heads didn’t know what to do.
“Since the Venerable has kept his hand, let’s send him back to Wudang Mountain.” After deliberation, Abbot Hui Wen said.
The Court Heads agreed.
In their eyes, if Su Qin had murderous intentions, Daoist Zhang would have been dead long ago. How could it be that he just fainted if that was the case?
Since Daoist Zhang is not dead, it means that the Venerable kept his hands. In this case, Abbot Hui Wen and the Court Heads would naturally follow Su Qin’s intentions.
“Let’s do this.”
“I will have someone send Daoist Zhang back later.”
Abbot Hui Wen finalized the decision.
Back Mountain Forbidden Area.
Su Qin was sitting cross-legged and a trace of emotion flashed deeply in his eyes.
Once upon a time, Daoist Zhang was still a great character that Su Qin could only look up to.
“So I am already that strong?” Su Qin thought silently in his heart.
Daoist Zhang, who was once an unattainable existence, couldn’t even bear a trace of his aura and fainted immediately.
“However, Daoist Zhang is better than the Demon Lord in terms of fighting strength.”
Su Qin compared Daoist Zhang against the Demon Lord and concluded that Daoist Zhang was better.
In fact, whether it is Daoist Zhang or the Demon Lord, both of them are Peak Grade 1 Great Grandmasters that have been transformed themselves twice. In any era, they are considered as dazzling stars.
But unfortunately they met Su Qin.
“Daoist Zhang’s Tai Chi is interesting. If there are enough opportunities in the future, it may not be possible for him to reach Grade 1 Great Perfection…” Su Qin speculated.
Su Qin’s evaluation of Daoist Zhang was quite high. After all, so far, Su Qin believes that only Xuan Ku is able to do this.
This is because Xuan Ku now has a complete Buddha’s Heart and is often guided by him.
Since Daoist Zhang can walk to this step on his own, this just shows that he is a peerless talent.
As for whether Daoist Zhang can go further, Su Qin can’t exactly say.
Each Arhat or Legend breaks through in a different way, and it is impossible to judge which strand of Qi they would grasp from the Heavens and Earth.
Daoist Zhang was not fully sent back by the Shaolin Temple disciple.
That’s because in the middle of the journey, Daoist Zhang had already woken up.
After a short silence, Daoist Zhang asked the escorting Shaolin Temple disciple to go back, and he returned to Wudang Mountain alone.
Along the way, Daoist Zhang’s mind kept replaying the scenes he had seen in the Shaolin Temple, especially the figure that looked like a real god at the last moment before he lost consciousness.
Daoist Zhang was back on Wudang Mountain.
When the disciples saw Daoist Zhang, they were overjoyed and immediately gathered around. They looked at Daoist Zhang with concern.
“Master, are you okay?” A Wudang Mountain disciple couldn’t help but ask.
They saw that there was something wrong with the Daoist Zhang’s expression at the moment, and he seemed to be in a trance.
“How could I not be?”
Daoist Zhang shook his head and said with a bitter smile.
In his trip, he did nothing, and he did not even have a trace of injury. However, only Daoist Zhang knew in his heart that he might not be able to escape the shadow of the god-like figure in his life.
“Master, what did you see when you went to the Shaolin Temple?”
Zhang Xiao squeezed in front of Daoist Zhang and asked cautiously.
Before Daoist Zhang left, he only left a sentence about going down the mountain to ‘ask for help’, which left many Wudang Mountain disciples puzzled for a long time; but Zhang Xiao guessed that Daoist Zhang was probably going to Shaolin Temple to go see the Arhat.
“What did I see in the Shaolin Temple?”
Daoist Zhang repeated in a low voice, a trace of mockery appeared on his face: “This old Taoist always felt that even if a real Legend strikes at me, it would still take him a few moves before he could defeat and kill me…”
Daoist Zhang slowly raised his head and looked towards the Shaolin Temple: “It seems that this old Taoist is just a frog in a well…”
