#19 – Heavenly Academy
Yama sent away Nan Gong while he stayed in the room thinking about various things.
‘Its been around three months since I got here, there are so many things I have noticed going down hill, most of the demons from Hell have escaped, but is it just to this world or are they scattered across different worlds? Just what the heck is happening in Hell!
Regardless of what it is, I am sure that waste of my father should have figured something out unless this was all orchestrated by him just for the purpose of getting back with me?.
Well if it is, he better pray that I fucking don’t get back to hell anytime soon otherwise I will burn that Heaven Hall place of his down till not even the ashes are left!’
Yama was fuming over the various incidents in the past few months, he thought he has found the answers to why he was here but he has been left with more questions to seek answers for and there was only person, he can think to blame and that is the supreme being himself.
Yama felt the urge to go to a church and ask these priests to tell his father to get the fuck down here!
Yama got rid of all these thoughts and walked out of the room as soon as he walked out he was welcomed by staring gazes from the Ye Ming, Heaven Pill House elders and some disciples , he was surprised to see all these people were silently waiting for him.
“Don’t you guys have any better job to do? Why are you guys staring at me!” Yama said trying to break out all the curious gazes at him.
Yama figured that Nan Gong must have left with Lie Wie obviously Lie Wei must have asked Nan Gong what I was talking about and certainly Nan Gong would have not uttered a word of what was discussed inside unless he is tired of living, so that’s the only possible reason why these people were waiting for him all this time.
“Ye Ji, so what did you discuss with Nan Gong” asked Wei Yang.
Yama knew that it was impossible to hide discussions so it was better if he made something up.
“Senior in fact we had a bet inside and I have won, I have made sure that Nan Gong will never challenge any of our disciples in the future even if Lie Wei asks him.” Yama can only say something that will be beneficial for the Heaven Pill House, this way he can keep Wei Yang from pressuring him.
Wei Yang who heard this sized up Yama, It was believable for him as he is sure that Yama will not do anything that will bring harm to the Heaven Pill House as he is a close friend of his father, but at the same time Wei Yang knew it was better not to get on the bad side of Yama, as he knows his talent in alchemy is really good and in the future he can even strive to become a six star alchemist.
Yama producing a one star pill with a fourth grade quality is still a shock to him, Wei Yang has hardly seen anyone do this, even top geniuses in alchemy cannot produce results as Yama, so Wei Yang will not want to offend Yama.
“That’s great! Ye Ji, you have really helped us a lot, I will fulfil your three conditions and you don’t even need to do the pill test either, I have already witnessed your talent, but I do have a request if you don’t mind?”
“What request senior?”
“I know you want to get into cultivation more, I am assuming you will be spending all your time on it, however I would also like you to at least give focus on alchemy once a week or so”
“Certainly senior, I will strive myself to be best in all” Yama said proudly, he has already decided that he will learn everything and to be honest Yama actually doesn’t need to spend any time on alchemy at all, since he has all the knowledge and abilities of the nine star alchemist alchemy was a piece of cake for him.
The only trouble is that he doesn’t have the necessary cultivation rank to concoct other star pills.
“Hahaha.. Great Great! Kid I am going to get you a place at the Heavenly Academy” Wei Yang told Yama.
When the surrounding disciples heard this they started to go onto a commotion.
“Look at that Patriarch is going to get him a place at the Heavenly Academy”
“OMG Heavenly Academy”
“Thats like one of the biggest academies in the whole continent!”
“Yes it is a place where magicians and warriors reside! The academy has tutors which can help students in either fields! Your guaranteed to become a top expert once you step in regardless whether you go on the warrior path or the magician path”
Even the elders of the Heaven Hall started discussing among each other.
“I can’t believe the Patriarch is using up his favour.”
“He must really believe that Ye Ji is a genius that will shake the continent”
“I am telling you that brat is really lucky!”
Yama who can hear all kinds of discussions asked Wei Yang
“Senior…Just what is this Heavenly Academy?”
Everyone who heard this nearly staggered, how can a person in this Kingdom or even in this continent not know about the Heavenly Academy.
“What you don’t know about the heavenly academy?!” Wei Yang was even astonished about the fact that Yama didn’t know, but then when he thought about how he was in a shed for like nearly six years, he had no other choice to believe that Yama had no idea what the academy was.
‘It is truly a bad luck that you have suffered all this time, your talent has been wasted at that clan.’
Wei Yang spoke up again knowing that this was the issue.
“Listen let me tell you, the Heavenly Academy is one of the top and the largest academies in the continent, its that amazing that you can even count magicians from the back of your hand, they have all the resources to train someone up as a warrior or a magician, so someone with an aptitude for magic can become a excellent magician.
It is also the same for warriors, you can become a top expert easily as they will have lots of cultivation to martial resources.”
Yama was excited after hearing this, even thought he vaguely confirmed it from the discussions hearing from Wei Yang himself assures it.
“However… it won’t be easy! I can only recommend you for the test. Only geniuses are accepted at that academy therefore you should learn to know that there is always a mountain above you.” Wei Yang said after seeing Yama’s excited expression.
‘What mountain! I am the lord of hell regardless of how powerful someone, the decider at the end is always me.’
Yama obviously was displeased with what Wei Yang said however he knew that he only said it for his well being, how can Wei Yang know that Yama is not Ye Ji but the lord of hell.
“I will not let you down senior.”
“Good Good! even though I don’t know the content of the test I believe you can pass their test easily.”
Ye Ming was overjoyed by the turn of events, he has never expected Wei Yang to know someone from the Heavenly Academy. Wei Yang knows that is is not a easy feat to get someone into the Heavenly Academy, even though the requirements is not high but they will test someone’s aptitude to see if they can be successful in the future, mostly the nobles and well known clans are the ones who get a chance to get into the academy.
Ye Ming was now praying that Ye Ji gets accepted to the Heavenly Academy, this way it will be very beneficial for the Ye Clan and if somehow the Chen clan finds about the whereabouts of Ye Ji, then they will have to think twice to take action inside the academy, so it is relatively a safe place for Ye Ji.
“Alright brat! Get prepared, you will be leaving in a day or so, the sooner you get there the better, they will be a lot of cultivators coming to that place to take the test.!”
