Chapter 14.5 – Someone Wants to Steal Master (2)
Du Sha opened her mouth. She didn’t have the time to react before the verdict was declared. “Ninety-seventh platform, Ye Chenyuan wins!”
Smash! Unable to hold back, Long Xiu shattered the cup of spiritual tea next to her hand.
Startled awake, Yuan Chu blurted out amidst her confusion, “Little Yuan Yuan won, right? I knew he wouldn’t lose. I wonder who was unlucky enough to be his opponent…”
Long Xiu seethed with anger at her words. Oh how she hated that she couldn’t quarrel with Yuan Chu! This stupid girl had to be purposefully ridiculing her!
And once Yuan Chu finished speaking, she laid back down on her chair and went back to sleep. Moqi Tingfeng looked at the little girl with helplessness in his eyes. Her tiny stature only took up a corner of the lofty bluestone chair, yet her temper was so big. She angered people to death and never paid with her life.
“Enough…” He looked at Long Xiu, indifferent disapproval in his eyes. “Little Chu is our Myriad Sword Sect’s youngest child. Why can’t you get along with her?”
Long Xiu’s grievance filled eyes reddened. She could bear it before, but now she really could no longer resist!
“You all just continue spoiling her!” With this, she left with a flick of her sleeves. The other elders and peak masters exchanged glances, their gazes helpless. And the sleeping Yuan Chu’s mouth twitched, as if she was having some sort of pleasant dream.
After a day of competition, everyone was a bit tired but still very spirited.
In order to prepare for tomorrow’s competition, Ye Chenyuan didn’t rest. Instead, he practiced his technique under the moonlight, his thoughts drifting towards an unknown direction.
“Kid, you’re not concentrating.”
Venerable Li ridiculed him from within his sea of consciousness. “What, you just met her and now you can’t be apart from her for even a day?”
Ye Chenyuan stopped. His expression was serious as he emphasized, “She is my master. You can’t be so rude.”
Venerable Li snorted. “It’s all thoughts of that little girl. Anyway, as long as you win your way through, you’ll quickly become her disciple. No one’s going to fight with you!”
After all, everyone in the outer sect already knew Yuan Chu was only six years old. They would never choose to be her disciple.”
Ye Chenyuan frowned. Just as he was about to speak, he heard some abnormal movement.
He grasped his dagger in his palm as he spoke. A black figure walked out of the darkness. It was a twelve-year-old youth. The moment he walked out, he raised his chin and said,
“Your vigilance isn’t too bad.” He glanced over Ye Chenyuan and frowned. “Your cultivation is just too poor.”
Ye Chenyuan remembered this person. He was the only greater perfection Qi Refiner in this batch of disciples. And in today’s semi-finals, he struck his opponent off the platform with just one move. He was this competition’s most popular first place candidate.
“What did you come here for?”
The other party snorted lightly and replied, cold and arrogant, “Just passing by. Seems like you’re aiming for first place. Too bad, with me here, you won’t have your way.”
Ye Chenyuan smiled faintly and sheathed his dagger. “The victor will soon become clear.”
About to leave, Ye Chenyuan turned around and heard him say,
“I know why you want to be first place. The top three gets the right to choose their master, but first place gets first pick. I heard this time the sect master will break the rules and accept one person as his disciple. You must want to rush for the sect master’s disciple, right?”
Ye Chenyuan pursed his lips slightly. He had no way of denying it. Who knew that after he walked a few steps, the other person would continue,
“Then you have absolutely no reason to see me as your enemy. Because, I don’t want to become the sect master’s disciple. My name is Wei Shengji. Perhaps we can still become good friends.”
Ye Chenyuan frowned. He gave a sideways glance at Wei Shengji.
Under the moonlight, his white clothes seemed lonely and desolate, his voice cold and cheerless.
“Then who do you want to choose?”
Cutting straight to the point, Wei Shengji seriously said, “Frost Sword Peak’s peak master, Yuan Chu! I want to choose her as my master!”
Bang! As if something shattered, a great amount of killing intent suddenly appeared on Ye Chenyuan, shocking Wei Shengji!
“What? Could it be… you’re also aiming for her?”
With this, Wei Shengji glared at Ye Chenyuan, an unpleasant expression on his face. “Why? Don’t you know Yuan Chu is only six? She is too young to be a good master.”
Ye Chenyuan stepped forward. His face was calm and alienating with a hint of dangerousness.
“And you? Why do you want to acknowledge her as your master?”
Wei Shengji snorted and emotionlessly replied, “Out of Myriad Sword Sect’s sixteen peaks, every peak is allocated the same amount of cultivation resources every year. Meaning, once divided up, few cultivation resources will ever reach your hands. Only Frost Sword Peak currently has no disciples. As long as I acknowledge her as my master, all those resources will be mine!”
“Hmm?” Wei Shengji looked at him, confused.
Ye Chenyuan laughed softly. “I’m the Frost Sword Peak peak master’s personally chosen first and last disciple. You planned this out very well, but Frost Sword Peak will only have me.”
Wei Shengji froze for a moment and then said, displeased, “Since this is the case, you better pray that you don’t run into my hands or else you won’t even have the right to choose a master!”
