Chapter 96: Cliff Jumping (1)
“I think that “this” won’t work out.”
As Ye Yu pushed Xuan Yi away, she thought about the situation and decided on waiting for a good opportunity for an excuse to stop him.
At this point, she naturally shouldn’t mention Yun Hua anymore. The more she mentioned it, the more awful the situation will become. Then, should she talk about her period and stop him from continuing?
Before Ye Yu could come up with an answer, Xuan Yi’s gaze flickered, in a dilemma. In the end, he asked nothing and moved to the side quietly.
Once Ye Yu calmed down, she got back up and Xuan Yi who was sitting across her was silent.
He even seemed a bit well-behaved.
“Sister is right. It won’t work right now.”
Ye Yu didn’t reply.
She had seen through Xuan Yi’s attitude in this life. She could sum it up — A prick.
In the past life, he was deceived by her, and now, he started to dig traps for her.
Even more, she ended up jumping into each one of them.
As expected, after saying this, Xuan Yi glanced meaningfully at her.
“If everything ends and I’m still safe and sound… When that day comes, I’ll make sure my sister falls in love with me.”
“You better not…”
Ye Yu was halfway through her words when the rest of her words were concealed by the loud sound of the clock ticking.
The two looked out of the window in unison, towards the direction of the Jian Sect.
Ye Yu shifted her gaze.
Xuan Yi nodded and said, “There were rumors that the way Jian Sect selects the disciples was passed down by ancient immortal sects. However, all the disciples that attend the competition will be wiped of their memories from the past two rounds and they will only have memories of the third round — Spirit Test.”
He glanced at Ye Yu and said, “Even today, it’s a mystery how the Jian Sect selects its disciples, right?”
Ye Yu’s reaction was very calm as she said, “With your talent, are you really going to worry about the selection?”
Xuan Yi declined the comment and said, “I am used to being absolutely safe.”
“…” Ye Yu pursed her lips and said, “The Jian Sect’s selection ceremony was passed down from the ancient sect. The first round is called the “Heaven’s Platform” and it tests the disciples’ dantian, seeing if they’re fit for cultivation. It requires all the participants to follow the stone ladder and climb up. Those with weaker dantians will find trouble climbing up the ladder. Although they’re just choosing an ordinary disciple, they’re still selecting according to the Jian Sect’s standards. Most of the participants here will probably be eliminated in the first round.”
Xuan Yi listened and nodded softly, no change of expression.
“Plus, in this round, only the name seems a bit terrifying. Everyone dreams of ascending to heaven after this, but in reality, they’re only able to see the actual entrance to the Jian Sect.”
Xuan Yi was slightly stunned and confused, asking, “Then why is it called “Heaven’s Platform?””
Ye Yu grinned and said, “Because in this round, the platform where everyone climbs up is called the “Heaven’s Platform.””
Xuan Yi was speechless.
Ye Yu continued to explain, “The second round is called… “Dragon’s Gate.”” Speaking of this, it seemed like Ye Yu had thought of something and an emotion flickered in her eyes.
Xuan Yi didn’t miss the change in expression and he knitted his eyebrows, asking, “Is the second round very difficult?”
“…The second round is the simplest.”
While saying this, Ye Yu sighed.
“At the end of the Heaven’s Platform, there is a bottomless cliff and I heard that it gives people the chills just looking at it.”
