Chapter 97: Cliff Jumping (2)
Xuan Yi also thought of something and his gaze turned strange, asking, “Could it be that in the second round?…”
Ye Yu sighed again and nodded, “Right, you have jump down the cliff in the second round.”
“The cliff is just a trick set up by the Jian Sect. Behind the cliff, there is another trick and that is the Dragon’s Gate. It is used to test the participants’ body strengths. If they don’t meet the requirements, their memories will be wiped and then they will be spit out of the Dragon’s Gate. Those who meet the requirements will immediately be sent to the third round’s testing location and they will be really entering inside the Jian Sect.”
Hearing this, Xuan Yi had understood the purpose.
“Therefore, in the first and second round, although it seems like they’re testing the disciples’ dantians and body strengths, they’re actually testing the disciples’ nature and temperament.”
“Right.” Ye Yu nodded and said, “This is why the Jian Sect wipes the memories of the disciples’. If this piece of information is leaked, to a majority of the participants, the second round will be of no pressure to them.”
Xuan Yi became silent for two second and looked helplessly at Ye Yu.
“But to sister, even if you know it’s a trick, you probably won’t dare to jump down, right?”
Ye Yu kept a straight face, not replying, but she announced her bitterness in her heart.
If it were up to her, she would say that this round was unfair. These old-fashioned people who came up with the rounds don’t know that there’s a sickness called “acrophobia” which exists in the world!
The corner of Ye Yu’s lips twitched and she shifted her gaze.
“Everyone knows the third round. It’s the Spirit Test. After all, the sense of qi is related to the cultivator’s ability to communicate with heaven and earth as well as the speed to break through the realms…however, to ordinary disciples, this round only serves as a reference in how the disciples will be treated later on.”
After this, Ye Yu paused and glanced at Xuan Yi.
“With your talent, you just need to show off a little to pass the round. However, you should pay attention and don’t act like a competent cultivator. If you’re too outstanding, the spirit gem might explode.”
Xuan Yi listened and smiled, asking, “Sister believes in me that much?”
Ye Yu glanced strangely at him and asked, “Is there a reason why I shouldn’t believe you?”
Xuan Yi said nothing, but trained his eyes on her.
Ye Yu acted like she didn’t see it and turned around to push the door open, walking out of the horse carriage. “Everyone’s at the bottom of the mountain. We should go now.”
About two hours or so, Ye Yu and Xuan Yi arrived at the foggy Heaven’s Platform.
There was no need to mention Xuan Yi’s skills. As the male lead of 《Night isn’t evil》, there was not a second person in the world who was better than him in terms of talent. Although Princess Ye’s talent isn’t better than Xuan Yi, compared to ordinary genius of the two worlds, she could still win them.
This was just the first round in the selection of the disciple. Towards the two of them, it was a piece of cake.
Plus, in order to avoid being in the spotlight, the two even purposefully slowed down and mingled between the participants whose cultivation was in the middle or above the average.
After they ascended Heaven’s Platform, everyone either sat down to rest or stood up.
