Chapter 112: “Fake Competition” and Undermining Someone (2)
“However, I originally thought that the host wants to give Yun Hua some benefits.”
“Then you really don’t understand human nature.”
Ye Yu smiled and said, “Compared to some superficial benefits, she will be more willing to get rid of the person that holds the most threat to her — the person closest to her beloved.”
Ye Yu paused and said, “Especially when she could obtain her motive in an honorable way and I had given her this chance.”
The system said, “I understand now.”
Ye Yu stretched her body and smiled lazily at the bright sunlight.
“Now, I just need to rest and prepare for a ‘fake battle’ later on.”
It was coincidentally Jian Sect’s turn to host this year’s immortal world’s competition.
The day before the competition, there were formidable gigantic birds flying over the sky towards the sect and they were extremely powerful.
Like locusts crossing over.
Ye Yu who had been woken up early had expressionlessly propped her chin up, thinking.
When all the other sects arrived as well, the momentum kept on increasing.
It was finally the second day of the competition and Ye Yu was still yawning, hurrying to the scene right on the dot. She was extremely tired, having not gotten enough sleep.
However, this kind of tiredness kept on continuing until the competition began.
The pairs were randomly picked during the competition and one person from each pair will be eliminated and so on. Ye Yu was going against a scholar of the Tianji Pavilion in the first round.
Originally, everything was normal and Ye Yu just planned on fooling around casually and winning the round.
Up until the scholar standing across her was pointing at her, confused.
“Ah, you’re that —”
Halfway through, the scholar snapped out of his daze and glanced in fear. He clasped his hands and paid respect.
“I am not your match. Goodbye.”
Ye Yu was confused.
Once he finished talking, that person really turned around and left the combat stage.
Ye Yu who was still a bit tired felt much more energetic now.
She glanced at the figure in bewilderment.
Did a strange rumor spread while she didn’t know what was going on?
Ye Yu walked into the next round, muddleheaded.
In this round, she was going against a disciple within the sect. Besides being stunned by her appearance after getting on stage, the disciple didn’t react.
Ye Yu sighed and yawned, ‘bringing’ the disciple down the ring.
The later rounds were quite normal.
Up until Ye Yu met the disciple from Tianji Pavilion again.
This time, the person didn’t even enter the ring, respectfully bowing at Ye Yu.
“Mister, you may go first.”
Ye Yu was speechless.
Was there something wrong with the people of Tianji Pavilion?
After that, Ye Yu patiently observed the next few rounds and noticed a pattern.
If she was combating against people from other sects, there were no problems and everything was normal. If people from Tianji Pavilion were battling with other people, there were no problems as well and everything was normal.
The only exception would be when Tianji Pavilion’s disciples encountered herself. They all glanced at her like she was their ancestor. They admitted defeat before even entering the ring as if she had hired the entire pavilion to help her.
Towards this, Ye Yu felt extremely wronged. She only invited one person and she was from the Yun Sect.
Not only did Ye Yu have detected something was wrong, the rest of the disciples of other sects and the elders naturally detected something too.
For a while, countless cultivators’ gazes followed Ye Yu on the ring not far from the audience stage.
Ye Yu said, “Who did I offend?”
The Tianji Pavilion’s elders who were being questioned gave no responses, instead glancing at Ye Yu intensely, making the latter feel goosebumps rising within her body. She tried her best to recall everything she had done in the past year, but she didn’t know if she had done anything out of the ordinary.
If Ye Yu couldn’t figure it out, other people naturally couldn’t either.
There were all sorts of assumptions.
So, when there were only two disciples fighting for the final title for the Spirit Bud Realm competition in the afternoon, there were rumors that “Ye Yu was actually Tianji Pavilion’s elder leader’s precious daughter.’
Standing within the ring, Ye Yu had clearly seen Yun Hua looking at her in pity.
Ye Yu was speechless.
You guys have gotten it wrong. The person across from me is the ‘precious daughter.’ But she’s not from the Tianji Pavilion, but the Yun Sect, ok?
No matter what the rumors said, the competition still continued.
The people standing in the center of the ring glanced at each other and faintly nodded before actually putting on a decent fight.
After two incense sticks, the competition was over and Yun Hua lost to Ye Yu by a slight margin.
Naturally, the two had put on this show.
Within the competition, there were always rewards for the top 10, but the victor had the most valuable rewards.
Not bothering with the rumors, Ye Yu led the nine other people and walked towards the ‘award platform,’ dispirited.
Nothing happened while they were conferred awards. Ye Yu held the century old valuable spiritual item she obtained and prepared to display this to the audience down the stage like cupping an award when she was stopped by the Tianji Pavilion’s elder.
The old man with a white beard and eyebrows smiled like a trafficker about to abduct a child.
“Lady Ye Yu, are you willing to join Tianji Pavilion?”
