Chapter 109: Immortal World’s Competition (1)
Ye Yu was inattentive the entire day even as she finished telling fortune for the rest of the disciples and returned to her dorm.
There were all sorts of emotions and overwhelming feelings that filled her mind. She felt a throbbing pain from her temple.
She still remembered how she carelessly asked Xuan Yi once during Jian Sect’s selection ceremony about how he knew the Pearl Mountain contains an item he desired.
Xuan Yi had avoided the topic and didn’t mention it anymore, so Ye Yu hadn’t thought much about it.
She had never thought about going to the event in Feng Huan City, but was it really a coincidence that Ye Fei who had returned to the immortal world after two years of traveling had arrived at the same time as Xuan Yi who coincidentally came to the devil world?
The original novel had hinted that Xuan Yi had contacted many of the buried forces in the devil palace within the Feng Huan City, but she never made the connection to Ye Fei.
After all, as the reader of the novel, Ye Yu reacted the same way as the others. She believed that Ye Fei, the one with the title as the “genius of the two worlds” was the nemesis of the male lead. She never thought that a genius and talented person like him had been living on the streets when he was young and then brought back to the sect by an elder of the Jian Sect…
It seemed like a successful scheme planned in advance in order to conceal his identity.
The gentle and warm senior brother of the Jian Sect, Ye Fei… could he really be Xuan Yi’s subordinate?
Thinking about this sent chills down Ye Yu’s body.
“Host, there is a new mission.”
Right now, the system interrupted Ye Yu’s thoughts.
Ye Yu processed the words and then instinctively knitted her eyebrows, asking, “What mission?”
She hadn’t received a main mission in nearly a year and she couldn’t help but feel ill at ease for receiving one at this time.
The system said, “The main mission is 【Immortal World’s Competition】.”
Ye Yu paused her footsteps.
“…I vaguely remember the original novel’s storyline mentioning this, but didn’t Xuan Yi, Yun Hua, and Princess Ye didn’t participate in it? How could it be my main mission if Princess Ye wasn’t involved in it?”
“This, this…it seems like…”
The system started to stutter.
“Cut to the chase.”
The system said helplessly, “Host, it seems like the main plot had changed again.”
Thinking about the skipping of the storyline, Ye Yu knitted her eyebrows and asked, “What types of changes?”
“According to the most current mission’s storyline, the host needs to attend the lowest realm’s competition of the immortal world’s competition after breaking through the Spirit Realm. In addition…you need to defeat Yun Hua.”
Ye Yu was speechless.
The system confirmed it again and then sighed.
“That’s it. Thankfully, the storyline hadn’t deviated too much…”
“That’s it?” Ye Yu was quite angered by the system and said, “The main mission already wants me to defeat Yun Hua and you’re just saying ‘that’s it?’”
The system was confused and asked, “It’s just the Spirit Realm’s competition and Yun Hua, in everyone’s eyes, is just an outstanding and talented ordinary disciple. Even if host defeats her, nothing big will happen, right?”
Ye Yu sighed.
“Damn, do you really fit the standards of a system?”
The system was speechless.
“Ok. Let me explain. What is Yun Hua’s identity in 《Night isn’t evil》?”
The system hesitated before saying, “The heroine.”
“Right, the heroine.” Ye Yu rubbed her eyebrows and said, “When did you ever see the main lead being defeated by a side lead within an official and magnificent competition, especially under the public’s eyes?”
The system choked.
When it started talking, Ye Yu felt the robotic voice trembling, “So…could it be that the mission was denying Yun Hua’s identity as the heroine?”
Ye Yu asked, “Are you sure you didn’t receive any warnings of the storyline deviating?”
The system checked it multiple times, unsure.
“I really didn’t, host.”
“…Then there are only two possibilities.”
“The first one. There is no warning that the storyline is deviating within the official mission. The second one. The storyline was naturally adjusting to the changes.”
“Adjusting to the changes? Like how Xuan Yi’s heart is on the host? That kind of change?”
The system said with resentment.
Ye Yu said expressionlessly, “So, it’s my fault?”
“Host, then are you doing this mission?”
Ye Yu remained silent for a while before she relaxed and calmed down, starting to walk again.
“I’ll do it. I must do it.”
“Although the storyline might be adjusting itself automatically, the revenge plan will never change.”
“After all, I was the one that picked 500 silvers up. Could I really abandon it?”
“However, because of the changes, I am very ill at ease to receive the missions after this…”
Immortal world’s competition was one of the grandest and magnificent events within the sect.
