"You better not provoke me. If you do, I do not care if you are the son of an immortal - I will slaughter you."

The soft tone of his was hidden with cold murderous intent. The elder and the young man shuddered in shock. They did not doubt the truthfulness in his statement.

After the strike just now, the two of them were now swimming near the death line. They truly felt Ling Xian's murderous intent and his determination.

"From now until we leave this ship, I recommend you hide inside your own rooms and never appear in my sight again," Ling Xian warned, "I cannot promise that your heads will still be on your necks otherwise."

Immediately, their hearts turned cold. After taking a peak of Ling Xian vilely, they returned to their individual room without looking back.

All the spectators there felt their hearts turn cold. The way they looked at Ling Xian was full of respect as if looking at a celestial being.

A mere gruntle caused a completion leveled cultivator to bleed from his lips. How overpowering was this?

After making a few statements, the two people with insanely strong backgrounds backed down, how dominating was this?

"Oh my god, that one cold grunt made that completion leveled cultivator bleed. This person here is also a completion leveled cultivator!"

A young man wearing a cotton robe shouted. His expression was very excited as if he had discovered a new continent.

But very quickly, he realized that the way everyone was looking at him was like they were looking at an idiot.

"Isn't that self-explanatory? When he destroyed the Tornado, I knew he was of the completion level. One that is even stronger than that elder!" A middle-aged man screamed out. Other than respect, there was only heat in the way he looked at Ling Xian.

The others were the same. They stared at Ling Xian with heated gazes, as if they wanted to go up to him and praise him.

A completion leveled powerhouse, a character they never get to see ordinarily!

Even though everyone here was of high status or rich, compared to Ling Xian, they were nothing more than the grass on the side road!

In the Taoism community, capability is the most important quality. You can have more wealth than a nation or be strong enough to control the world, but you are still no match for the most capable cultivator!

Regardless of one's background or status, the moment they reach the completion level, their past lives are forgotten, and they rise up to the clouds, high above others!

Therefore, it was natural for everyone to be so excited. The way they looked at Ling Xian was of pure respect and admiration.

Just then, a grey-haired elderly man with a stern expression took out a reflective mirror from his storage pouch. Then, he pointed it at Ling Xian. Immediately, a milky white light began to emit from it.

After a few moments, the milky white light disappeared, and the number "22" appeared on the mirror.

Immediately, the elder gasped in disbelief and said with a trembling voice, "Oh my goodness, this man is only 22 years of age!"

Instantly, everyone was petrified.

22?

A 22-year-old completion powerhouse?!

Everyone gasped. They did not question the elderly because they all recognized the mirror he was holding.

Its name was the Mirror of Translucent Bones. It shows everyone's bone structure and from there, deduce a person's real age. It was the most effective way to judge someone's age.

"Oh my god, is this real? Am I dreaming."

"Unbelievable. A 22-year-old completion leveled cultivator. This is too shocking."

"Wait… a 20 something-year-old cultivator… this sounds a little familiar."

Everyone here was once again shocked as they stared at Ling Xian the way they look at a rare treasure – they wanted to lunge at him and take him as their own.

What does a 22-year-old cultivator mean? Everyone knew well that it meant he had amazing talent and a future that was bright.

A cultivator with such power, how could they not be excited? They wanted to go up and begin networking.

Everyone linked today's incident to the rumor from a few days ago. A guess flashed across their heads.

Is he… the legendary Ling Xian?

Many people had guessed Ling Xian's identity and felt a wave of emotions. The way they stared at his back was getting even more heated.

"Such a young completion leveled cultivator."

Bai Xiao Qi's lips parted as she became overwhelmed. But very quickly, she remembered her idol and mumbled, "Psh… so what you are a little younger? I heard that my idol is also a young completion leveled powerhouse. But he is not annoying like you. You wouldn't even tell me your name."

Feeling everyone's gaze, Ling Xian frowned. He realized everyone had guessed his identity by now. This gave him a headache.

"How troublesome. Is he that bored? Why would he take out the Mirror of Translucent Bones."

Ling Xian blamed the elder and glanced at him. This made the elder's body shiver. He then smiled in an attempt to please Ling Xian.

"Whatever. So what, I am exposed."

Ling Xian shook his head helplessly and descended from midair to return to his own room.

However, as soon as he landed, he became surrounded by everyone. They all smiled a flattering smile and began their chatters.

Their words were colorful and repetitive, but the content was the same.

It was flattery. Pure flattery. They made all the cringe-worthy statements they could. They exaggerated all they could. They talked about Ling Xian's unmatchable talent and how he was the best of the generation. They talked about how Ling Xian was handsome and cool with a broad heart.

Ling Xian was speechless and did not want to continue listening. He suspected that if he stayed, he would hear about how he is a man without an enemy and how he will dominate the world.

"Stop, everyone stop."

Ling Xian put out a hand and said, "I am about to go back to rest. Please let me through."

Hearing this, everyone subconsciously moved and parted ways to make room for Ling Xian.

"Good." Ling Xian nodded in satisfaction and headed towards the storage part of the ship.

People here did not want to let him go this easily. They very much wanted to continue their flattery to pull together the distance between Ling Xian and themselves. However, due to his powerfulness, they did not dare to say anymore. They merely stood where they were and exchanged glances with each other.

However, only one person did not care about Ling Xian's presence, and that was Bai Xiao Qi.

Watching Ling Xian's thin silhouette, her gaze became complex. In light steps, she followed him.

Then, they walked down to the lowest part of the ship.

Ling Xian pushed open the storage room's door and sat down on a black chair. He said teasingly, "Tell me, why are you here?"

Bai Xiao Qi did not answer. She checked out the small and ugly storage room and exclaimed in awe, "This is where you are staying?"

"What, is that a problem?" Ling Xian grinned. He knew why Bai Xiao Qi was so shocked.

It was true. With his status, living in such a low storage room did not match his identity.

This is what people meant by, the name of the mountain does not matter, it is the name of the owner that matters. As a completion leveled cultivator, living here, who dares to think lowly of this place?

Who dares to say this was merely a storage room?
