Qin Mu was stunned and didn't know who this Dao friend was.
However, Eternal Peace Imperial Preceptor disclosing his worry to him made his hair stood on end. He felt he could be gotten rid of any time, silencing him.
"You don't have to worry."
Eternal Peace Imperial Preceptor seemed to be able to see what he was thinking and said leisurely, "I only felt some emotions in my heart and shared them with you. You're a good listener. If it was Duke Wei that blabbermouth, I wouldn't dare to say much, otherwise the entire imperial court will know about it the next day."
"Duke Wei? Wei Yong seems to be from Duke Wei's family."
Qin Mu blinked his eyes innocently. Duke Wei, a first-ranking high official was also a blabbermouth? Wei Yong's talkativeness was already much of a headache, so he had actually learned it from his family.
Eternal Peace Imperial Preceptor said, "Furthermore, even though you're a sixth-ranking imperial academician and have an official position, you are not part of the imperial court. It's very safe talking with you."
He gave a smile and said, "The most crucial point is that no one would believe what the devil cult master of Heavenly Devil Cult says."
Qin Mu's face darkened. Even though Heaven Devil Cult had a good reputation with the commoners, in the eyes of the imperial court and martial world, they had a bad reputation.
Those few generals came closer to them and one of them bowed, "Imperial Preceptor, Heaven Wave City has already been quelled."
Eternal Peace Imperial Preceptor nodded his head and the few generals looked at Qin Mu, giving off puzzled expressions. Qin Mu smiled and nodded to them.
"This is the first imperial academician of our dynasty."
Eternal Peace Imperial Preceptor said, "Imperial Academician Qin Mu."
These few generals saw Qin Mu appearing honest and magnificent. Even though he was young, he gave people a feeling of reliability. They couldn't help exclaiming, "Academician Qin is truly young yet matured, as expected of the first imperial academician, a person that's erudite."
Qin Mu greeted and smiled, "You have flattered me."
Eternal Peace Imperial Preceptor turned around and looked towards the south, "This battle is only giving them an inkling of what we're capable of, the battle afterward is then the crucial one, keke…"
The few generals felt astonishment in their hearts and they immediately rushed forward, "Imperial Preceptor, your injury…"
Eternal Peace Imperial Preceptor waved his hands and his face was slightly pale. He then recovered and said, "I might have suffered the recoil when killing that devil god just now, it's nothing serious. The rebel army is stationed in the south and I prepare to give them two choices. Pillar of State He."
A general with a square face bowed, "Yes, Imperial Preceptor!"
"Go to the south and tell the rebels there that I'm coming. I'm giving them two choices."
Eternal Peace Imperial Preceptor pointed to the southern borders with a cold expression, "The first choice, I will lead thousands of soldiers and cavalries over and trample all over them, eradicating their cults, eradicating their sects, eradicating their whole families. This is the rules of the imperial court. This is what will happen to the rebels."
Pillar of State General He Xiaopeng listened carefully and Eternal Peace Imperial Preceptor continued, "The second choice is to follow the rules of the martial world, I'll bring the officials of the imperial court over to mark out an area and they would all go there to challenge us accordingly to the rules of the martial world. If they have the ability, they can kill us, or we will kill them. Two choices for them to choose."
Pillar of State He hesitated and said, "Imperial Preceptor, I'm afraid it's a little appropriate to go according to the rules of the martial world, right?"
Eternal Peace Imperial Preceptor said, "Before I entered the imperial court as an official, I was also someone from the martial world so why is it inappropriate? Isn't it the same for Pillar of State General? You have also entered the imperial court from the martial world, am I right?"
Pillar of State He affirmed and said, "I'll head to the southern border right now! However, now that Imperial Preceptor is recuperating, if they choose to go by the rules of the martial world, I'm afraid Imperial Preceptor will get stabbed in the back."
Eternal Peace Imperial Preceptor waved his hand and Pillar of State He left.
"Pillar of State Wei."
"Yes, Imperial Preceptor."
"Dispatch the soldiers and cavalries to cross the river, spreading into the shape of a fan. The east side will move all the way to the east sea, the west side will move all the way to Great Ruins. Pushing forward horizontally. We'll suppress lakes as we cross lakes, suppress rivers as we cross rivers, eradicate cities when we cross cities, push forward to the south."
Eternal Peace Imperial Preceptor said expressionlessly, "We need to let these rebels feel the pressure."
"Wei Wenju receives Imperial Preceptor's command!"
"Yes, Imperial Preceptor."
"Duke is powerful in cultivation and proficient in leading troops, you'll lead the troops straight towards Daxiang of the southern borders. Grand General of Crowning the Army, Grand General of Cherishing Transformation, each of you will lead an army and head off from both sides of the duke to eradicate the left and right city of Daxiang. Pillar of State Shang, you will lead an army and slaughter towards Dayu."
After Eternal Peace Imperial Preceptor dispatched his army and was finished with his instructions, Duke Wei smiled, "Imperial Preceptor, now that we have all gone to work, what about you?"
Eternal Peace Imperial Preceptor gave a smile, "I slowly walk behind you guys and wait for the rebels to make their decision. Furthermore, I still have some injuries on me and need to recuperate."
"Your injury isn't healed yet?"
Duke Wei said in a loud voice, "Then you need to rest for a period of time, isn't the little divine physician beside you? Let him treat you. My wife even ran to Flower Alley of the capital city behind my back. I thought she liked women and went the brothels there for fun, and it ended up she was there to find the little divine physician for a cure. She scared the hell out of me and even made me a little excited. I thought she was into this kind of stuff…"
Eternal Peace Imperial Preceptor coughed dryly and was a little awkward, "It's time for Duke to dispatch your troops. Daxiang is an important ground of the southern borders' army, it's a tough bone to chew."
Duke Wei nodded his head and turned around to leave. He then turned his head back and said to Qin Mu, "Little divine physician, give him a prescription to treat that rigid face of his. This long face can't even squeeze out a smile. Hehe, don't look around, I recognized you. When my wife went to your place for a cure, I had secretly followed her. I was afraid she was sleeping with other women and was even a little excited…"
Qin Mu's expression froze as he waved back at him.
Eternal Peace Imperial Preceptor let out a murky breath and said, "Ignore him, the men of Wei Family are all like this. Their mouths are so big that they could swallow a few cows."
Qin Mu didn't know whether to laugh or cry, it was obvious Eternal Peace Imperial Preceptor had also his own taste of suffering. Duke Wei must have talked a lot of nonsense in front of him.
"Imperial Preceptor, we'll part our ways here," Qin Mu smiled.
Eternal Peace Imperial Preceptor shook his head, "Part our ways, what for? You are still going to follow me to the southern borders. Without you by my side, how are you going to cure me?"
Qin Mu said awkwardly, "Stop fooling around, Imperial Preceptor. You know better than me regarding the injuries on your body. Furthermore, I had brought scholars out for experience but now I have lost these few scholars so I would have to find them in case they die in this chaos."
"You must follow me."
Eternal Peace Imperial Preceptor's face clouded and said, "I'll help you find those scholars of yours. What are their names?"
Qin Mu really didn't want to follow him. Eternal Peace Imperial Preceptor was obviously making all the armies put an immense pressure to the rebels of the southern borders, forcing the sects and families to have no choice but to come kill Eternal Peace Imperial Preceptor under the pressure.
Imperial Preceptor seemed to give them two choices but there was actually only one choice.
If he followed Imperial Preceptor, he would definitely become a target as well.
He was only at Five Elements Realm, how could he be an opponent for this kind of leviathan?
However, now that Imperial Preceptor had given his words, he was unable to reject and could only say the names of Chen Wanyun and the rest.
Eternal Peace Imperial Preceptor raised his hand and a fire cloud soared into the sky. The fire cloud transformed in the sky and formed the names of Chen Wanyun, Yue Qinghong, Yun Que and Si Yunxiang. Another fire cloud then turned into an arrow that pointed towards Qin Mu's location.
Not long later, Chen Wanyun, Si Yunxiang and the rest hurried over. They all had injuries on their bodies. It was obvious that they had also experienced hard battles as well and escaped death. The dragon qilin was also beside them and carried over by the wolf slave.
"Scholars of Imperial College meet Imperial Preceptor!" Chen Wanyun and the rest jumped in shock when they saw Eternal Peace Imperial Preceptor and immediately greeted.
The few of them felt uneasy as Qin Mu had summoned Dutian Devil King and created a huge disaster which caused countless death. They had also taken part in it and were considered accomplices of the imperial academician. If Eternal Peace Imperial Preceptor wanted to punish them, they would definitely be executed as well.
Eternal Peace Imperial Preceptor took a glance at everyone and when his gaze landed on the dragon qilin, he nodded his head and smiled.
The dragon qilin immediately struggled to get up and greeted him, "Imperial Preceptor."
"Big Dragon, why do you still have injuries?"
Hu Ling'er jumped onto the dragon qilin's body and asked bewilderedly as she looked at the wound on his butt, "You can't reach your own butt to lick it?"
The dragon qilin gave a dull snort and ignored her.
Qin Mu went forward and took out a few bottles of dragon's saliva, applying them on the wound of this big fella. The injury on the dragon qilin's body was quite serious as Dutian Devil King's gaze had sliced through the dragon scales on his body and even into the muscles of his butt. Luckily the dragon scales of this dragon qilin was extremely durable and managed to block the gaze of Dutian Devil King or he would definitely be sliced into two halves.
Qin Mu took out a few bottles of dragon's saliva to let Chen Wanyun and the rest to heal the wounds on their bodies.
"Yun Que, Wan Yun, a bottle is ten thousand great abundance coins."
Hu Ling'er reminded with a good intention, "If you don't have the money, you can write a certificate of indebtedness first."
Monk Yun Que's face turned ashen and muttered, "Poor monk is already penniless, I'm truly penniless. After academician coming to Imperial College, poor monk has already become penniless. If I owe so much money, I'm afraid I can only pay them off in the next life. Sister Fox, can you take pity on me…"
Qin Mu didn't know whether to laugh or cry, "Ling'er, stop fooling around. I brought them out for experience so I have the responsibility to treat them when they're injured, let alone I have the reputation as a divine physician. Physicians treat patients like the parents so how can he charge them? After the experience, if they get injured again, you can charge them then. If you charge them now, you'll spoil my reputation."
Yue Qinghong had planned to ask for one more bottle of dragon's saliva as backup and she dropped her thoughts when she heard that. She thought to herself, "He's still thinking of charging money to treat illness. Deep inside him, he's indeed very petty…"
Si Yunxiang was also injured therefore she asked for a bottle of dragon's saliva from Qin Mu. She pulled Yue Qinghong and the two girls ran into the forest to undress themselves before helping each other to apply the medicine on their bodies, preventing scars from being left behind.
"Sister's figure is really good, I'm not as big." Si Yunxiang measured Yue Qinghong and exclaimed in admiration.
Yue Qinghong smiled, "You're still young, when you grow older, they'll become bigger as well. Moreover, it feels slightly uncomfortable when they become bigger, especially when you're running. I'm also not used to wearing a tube top. It would be the best if I could wrap them, however, I can't find a good tailor…"
Si Yunxiang thought for a moment, "I've heard the academician was also a tailor and the clothes he makes are quite nice looking, how about…"
Yue Qinghong jumped in shock and her black eyes stared wide up, "How can I do that? He's a male!"
Qin Mu gathered everyone together and said with a grave expression, "The mission of our training has changed. I will have to follow Imperial Preceptor to the southern borders and enter deep into the enemy's territory. Imperial Preceptor's injuries have yet healed and I have to stay beside him to treat him. If you want to go back, you can leave now."
Chen Wanyun and the rest thought of the crucial point and knew there would definitely be danger laying all over this journey, therefore, they were all slightly hesitant.
Eternal Peace Imperial Preceptor said, "I can give you guys pointers for your cultivation on this journey. The previous time I was invited by your grand chancellor and my lecture didn't last two days. This time I'm giving face to the imperial academician."
Qin Mu was stunned and didn't know who this Dao friend was.
