Chapter 13 – Someone’s Scheming
Because she became the male lead’s greatest enemy in her last life, Wei Shengji disappeared from the scene. This time, since she encountered him…
Yuan Chu rubbed her chin, her smile full of malice. If I don’t interfere this time, will those two start ripping each other apart? Don’t know how that unparalleled Princess Yunshen looks like. Will she live up to the four words of “national beauty, divine grace”?
Currently, Ye Chenyuan was already deep in the fighting. However, because he stayed on the periphery of the platform, so he didn’t use too much strength because after today’s preliminaries there would be another round. In other words, there would only be two thousand five hundred people left today. He needed to have enough energy to deal with the next round.
A change happened on the platform. After the confusion, a thirty-some person gang formed. The leader shouted, “If we work as one to defeat these people, we will win!”
The formation of their gang made the others panic. It was difficult for one person to resist many, and there was no one to lead a counterattack, so they all avoided the gang. This lead to more gangs forming, and the situation turned unfavorable for those fighting alone.
But Ye Chenyuan narrowed his eyes and thought of a way to break through. He exerted his strength, suddenly drawing near to the person who first organized the groups. Most of the people didn’t have the time to detect his strange steps before Ye Chenyuan snapped the organizer’s foot tendon with his dagger, throwing him off the platform.
Because he was too quick, many thought a sneak attack happened within the group. Thus, everyone feared for themselves. The platform soon changed from a chaotic organization of groups to massacre.
Up on the high platform, Moqi Tingfeng stroked his beard. “This youngster isn’t too bad.”
Yuan Chu was very calm and collected. That’s all it took to be not bad?
“Someone I settled on will definitely reach the top ten!”
A female Nascent Soul below her snorted in contempt. “There are nineteen people past tenth stage Qi Condensing participating in this mountain opening competition including two eleventh stage and one great perfection. A little eighth stage Qi Refiner wanting to enter the top ten is no more than a pipe dream! Be careful of aiming too high or you might not even reach the top one hundred!”
Yuan Chu immediately grew unhappy at her words. She smiled fakely. “Granny Long Xiu, your vision needs improvement. How can you only look at someone’s appearance when judging them?”
Anger appeared on Long Xiu’s elegant face. “Who are you calling a granny?!”
She had long found Yuan Chu unpleasant to the eye. Of the Myriad Sword Sect’s sixteen Nascent Soul peak masters besides Yuan Chu, which one hadn’t spent hundreds of years to climb up to the top? Yuan Chu just had a good mother who was willing to scatter her life’s cultivation for her. And that little brat Yuan Chu’s luck was good too. Not to mention surviving a forceful push in cultivation, her foundation wasn’t destroyed either. Only her realms were unstable. They were dying of envy!
With the addition of the Sect Master’s partiality towards Yuan Chu, she was very unsatisfied. Thus, she absolutely had to suppress someone Yuan Chu regarded highly of!
Yuan Chu made a face. “Whoever answers is the granny!”
She called Long Xiu granny and the sect master uncle on purpose. Deliberately separating the two with a generation, how could Long Xiu not be unhappy?
But Moqi Tingfeng glanced over, and Long Xiu could only choke down her words. “I’m not arguing with a little girl! Just wait and see! That brat you took a fancy to might not even make it to the second round!”
Yuan Chu’s expression turned serious. “Then let’s bet! How about if I win, you give me a cloud swan egg?”
Long Xiu was the peak master of Spirit Beast Peak. However, the cloud swan was a rank six spiritual beast. Could it be she wanted a mount for herself?
She snorted. “What do you want a cloud swan egg for?”
Yuan Chu licked her lips. “To eat!”
Long Xiu stood up in anger! “You dare! Okay, I know now! You’ve been stealing the immortal crane eggs, haven’t you?!”
“Peak Master Long!” Moqi Tingfeng frowned. “You are in public. Watch your words.”
Long Xiu sat down. Still unreconciled, she said, “Senior Brother Sect Master… look at her!”
Upon seeing this, Yuan Chu hid behind the sect master, sticking out her tongue.
Everyone laughed with a bit of helplessness.
“Junior Sister, Little Chu is only six years old. What are you bickering with a child for?”
The peak master of Divine Talisman Peak laughed and stepped in as a peacemaker. “All the disciples below are watching!”
Only now did Long Xiu unwillingly drop the subject. But her heart was still unreconciled; why did everyone stand by Yuan Chu? Back when her mother was alive, everyone turned to her mother. Now that her mother was dead, everyone turned to her!
Her heart was filled with pent-up frustration. Her eyes wandered below to the newly victorious Ye Chenyuan!
His platform had fought the quickest and ended the earliest. The remaining fifty people all passed the preliminaries. Many people shouted happily. Seeing the calm Ye Chenyuan amidst them, Long Xiu sneered.
She couldn’t sort out Yuan Chu. But take care of an outer disciple? Just wait!
Then, she transmitted her voice to her oldest disciple, telling him to handle a task for her…
The preliminaries still continued, but those that finished first could enter the second round. By noon, seventeen thousand-person platforms finished fighting. Ye Chenyuan took advantage of the time to regulate his breathing while paying attention to the talents that revealed themselves during the preliminaries. In his sea of consciousness, Venerable Li said.
“Kids nowadays are truly more and more outstanding by the generation. From what I saw, as long as you don’t encounter that eleventh stage Qi Refining cultivator, Du Sha, you’ll be fine.”
Hearing this, Ye Chenyuan turned to look at a red-clothed twelve-year-old girl. She was also looking at him.
“Even if I do encounter her, I’ll be fine.”
He said this in his sea of consciousness. He smiled faintly and stood up.
After a while, they drew lots to decide the matchups for the next round. Ye Chenyuan unfolded the strip of paper and raised his eyebrows slightly. On it were the two words Du Sha. A coincidence?
No, this world had no coincidences. Then who? He just entered the Myriad Sword Sect not long ago. Who was trying to deal with him?
His looked upwards, full of misgivings.
And from his point of view, he could only see layer upon layer of suspended platforms. Yuan Chu was invisible behind the wispy layer of clouds. Ye Chenyuan’s eyes darkened for a moment then steadied.
What was there to fear? The final top three platform was in front of the sect master. Master was also there. And he would definitely fight his way to her. He refused to let her lose face!
An hour later, the revealed talents were all matched with opponents.
When Du Sha saw Ye Chenyuan, she smiled regretfully. “You’re truly good looking. Too bad you ran into me. Maybe we can still enter the inner sect as senior sister and junior brother, but right now…” She pulled out a red whip and continued, “you can only stop here!”
