Aspiring to the Immortal Path Chapter 19: Entering the Estate

Translated by: Hypersheep325

It turned out that when Qin Yuan said 'wait', Tang Jie would end up waiting for several months.

It was the sixth month when Steward Qin finally came with the good news: there was a vacancy.

A few days ago, the fellow responsible for caring for the gardens of the Wei Clan had come down with a sudden illness and died, and this vacancy needed to be filled. When the news got out, the stewards of the Wei Clan all recommended candidates. Steward Qin had recommended Tang Jie.

The next morning, Steward Qin brought Tang Jie to the Wei Estate.

As one of the five great clans of Canglong Prefecture, the Wei Clan's estate was extraordinary.

The estate on its own took up more than half of Azure Cloud Street. It had more than four hundred rooms and six gardens, and it served as the residence for nearly three hundred people.

The ones in the Wei Clan with the greatest seniority were naturally Venerable Master Wei and his wife, Venerable Lady Wei.

This couple had produced two sons and two daughters, all of whom were already married.

The eldest son, Wei Danbai, was the current patriarch of the Wei Clan. He had one wife and two concubines. His principal wife, Wei Shufeng, née Zheng, had given birth to two sons and a daughter. Her eldest son, Wei Tianzhi, was currently attending Basking Moon Academy. The secondborn, her daughter Wei Qing'er, had gone to Illusory Heart Academy of the Thousand Passions Sect. Her youngest son was Wei Tianchong. There was also one son and one daughter who were born from concubines. They had no right of inheritance and no chance at entering an academy. In some aspects, they were worse off than the servants.

The names 'Tianzhi' (Aspiring to Heaven) and 'Tianchong' (Charging at Heaven) indicated the Wei Clan's aspirations: ascending to the heavens.

When Wei Danbai had his first son, the Wei Clan was flourishing in Canglong Prefecture, so he had stopped thinking about how to make money and instead thought about how to cultivate and attain the Dao.

Alas, their foundations were still shallow, and the clan still could not claim to have a cultivator that was truly its own, only Spirit Masters it had employed at heavy price—far inferior to the Jins, Zhangs, and Gus. So long as the Wei Clan could produce a Spirit Master, its prosperity would be ensured for a hundred years. If it produced a Celestial Heart Realm expert, then the Wei Clan would no longer be 'the Canglong Prefecture Weis', but 'the Ling Province Weis'.

As for the kingdom-level clans, that required many Celestial Heart Realm experts, and the clan would need its own legacy that could be passed down.

Putting aside Wei Danbai, the Venerable Master's second son, Wei Qingsong, also had a son and daughter. The elder son was called 'Wei Ming', and the younger daughter was called 'Wei Die'.

Wei Ming had entered the academy last year, but just like Wei Tianzhi, he had a low aptitude, having opened few gates, and cultivation was proving difficult. Wei Qingsong could not afford to give as m
