Chapter 113: Connection Through Marriage (1)
Despite how Ye Yu could easily wrap her head around things, she still remained confused a long time after listening to Tianji Pavilion’s elder.
But it seemed like she wasn’t the only one confused. The other disciples from different sects on the ‘award platform’ all couldn’t process the words, staring at the two in shock.
Ye Yu snapped out of her daze and said, “Elder, you must be joking. I…”
“Sigh, I’m not joking.”
The elder with a white beard waved his hands, smiling with wrinkles on his face. “I am genuinely inviting disciple Ye Yu to our Tianji Pavilion to train. I’ll make sure you become an authentic disciple, ok?”
This time, before Ye Yu could say anything, the Jian Sect’s elder in charge of the Spirit Bud competition couldn’t stand it anymore.
“Hong Xuzi, don’t you think you’re not placing our Jian Sect in your eyes? Ye Yu is already a disciple of our Jian Sect. What’s your intention? Digging someone over to your pavilion?”
“Elder Qingyun, don’t be angry. Let me explain.”
Hong Xuzi, the elder from Tianji Pavilion, still smiled and wasn’t angry in any way. “Look at Ye Yu in your Jian Sect. She is just an ordinary disciple and there are countless disciples in the same position as her in the Jian Sect. I am just asking for one disciple, so how does that count as stealing someone?”
Elder Qingyun fumed with anger and said, “Even if it’s just one person, you’re still stealing them. Despite the countless disciples in Jian Sect, how many of them could break through the Spirit Bud Realm within a year?!”
Elder Qingyun was furious, so he didn’t pay attention to his words. The other elders from the Jian Sect from the audience stage held unwell expressions.
Moments later, there were traces of spiritual consciousness being extended within the air.
Ye Yu didn’t need to examine deeply to know that the elders were communicating through consciousness.
The root of the issue was still her.
Ye Yu thought that this was really an unexpected catastrophe, but she looked warmly at Elder Hong Xuzi from Tianji Pavilion.
“Elder, may I ask why you’re asking this? I don’t recall ever interacting with the pavilion before.”
When Hong Xuzi heard this, he smiled.
“An attendant in our sect had passed by Feng Huan city about a year ago and fortunately encountered lady Ye Yu. Speaking of which, lady Ye Yu was in another disguise, but thankfully, the attendant was intelligent enough and notified the elder of the pavilion. People were sent to chase after the lady and investigate your true appearance.”
Speaking of this, Hong Xuzi regretfully sighed. “What a pity that we didn’t find out until it was too late. When we finally made it here, lady Ye Yu was already part of the Jian Sect.”
When she heard that they mentioned Feng Huan city, Ye Yu remembered the one time where she had set up a stall while she was idle, with nothing to do.
Many cultivators had come over, wanting her to tell fortune, so she really didn’t notice the attendant from the Tianji Pavilion. Even more, she didn’t even know if someone was paying attention to her.
Hong Xuzi still laughed, saying happily, “It’s rare for someone to be as talented as lady Ye Yu in terms of telling fortune. If I am right, the ‘little fortune-teller’ that made their reputation in the Jian Sect in the recent year or so is probably lady Ye Yu too, right?”
Ye Yu was speechless.
She didn’t expect to be exposed in public and that suddenly.
She was stunned for a second and didn’t catch the best opportunity to retort, feeling shocked and surprised gazes on her from all sides.
…Unexpected fortune. It was definitely an unexpected misfortune.
Ye Yu was helpless in her heart, but she still struggled.
“Elder, maybe you got the wrong person? In the past, I…”
Hong Xuzi immediately shifted his gaze and waved his hands to someone under the stage.
“Li De, come and tell me if this lady Ye Yu is the same person you saw at Feng Huan city.”
The moment she heard the name, Ye Yu choked.
After two seconds, she stiffly turned around.
As she looked over, she realized that it was indeed her cheap disciple from her past life.
At this time, Li De respectfully bowed and said, “Report to the elder, she really is lady Ye Yu.”
Ye Yu was dumbstruck.
As expected, if she received her disciple’s fee without an honorable reason, she will receive karma sooner or later.
While Ye Yu was helpless and no way out, in the other direction of the competition, there were a few people fighting.
“I’m not going back!”
“Yun Hua, don’t throw a tantrum. If you’re really not going back, what are we supposed to tell the sect leader?”
“I’ll talk to him once I’m back. It has nothing to do with you guys.”
Ye Yu was interested in the conversation and she glanced over.
Everyone’s attention also shifted over.
