Chapter 15 – Privileged Second Generation Immortal
Ye Chenyuan laughed lightly. Standing there, he seemed like an elegant jade bamboo, but his words were like a piercing cold blade.
“I give the same advice to you. Look out for yourself.”
The two exchanged glances then headed towards their respective directions. Once he turned around, the smile on Ye Chenyuan’s face disappeared, his face turning ice cold.
From within his sea of consciousness, Venerable Li said in disbelief, “Good gracious, I never thought there would actually be someone who wanted to choose that little girl Yuan Chu as his master. You really do have great foresight!”
“It doesn’t matter!” After Ye Chenyuan walked a part of the road, he turned back and narrowed his eyes in the direction Wei Shengji had left in. “No matter who it is, no matter how many people want to become her disciple, she is mine!”
It had been so difficult for him to meet someone who would let him feel warmth and happiness. He definitely, definitely wouldn’t let anyone steal her!
In this tense night, perhaps only Yuan Chu slept the soundest. After a night of good sleep, the curtains opened for another day of competition.
After yesterday, only two thousand five hundred were left from the ten thousand competitors.
In a moment, these twenty-five hundred people would enter a round of melee fighting in groups of ten. Out of ten people, only one could win. In other words, after this round, only two hundred fifty people would be left.
In the afternoon, these two hundred fifty people would undergo another round of duels, eliminating another half of them. The competition was fierce.
Ye Chenyuan gazed at the square. There were still twenty five hundred people on the square. After today, there would only be a bit more than a hundred people left. He must be one of them!
During the melee, Ye Chenyuan didn’t suffer many injuries since his sea of consciousness was stronger than everyone else’s, and he advanced smoothly. However, it was unknown whether it was because his luck was bad, because when they drew lots for the duel, he pulled the stick of a late eleventh stage Qi Refiner. In this competition, he had encountered both of the only two late eleventh stage Qi Refiners. It really wasn’t your typical luck.
During the duels, Jiang Yue smiled faintly at Ye Chenyuan. He was only fifteen and he already had a cultivation of greater perfection eleventh stage Qi Refining. He also had single water roots, so he didn’t put Ye Chenyuan in his eyes at all.
Before the match, Venerable Li warned him. “Although I shouldn’t meddle in a match between you little kids, facing that little guy won’t be simple. His foundation is stable. Both his cultivation and spirit weapons are stronger than yours. This time, I’m afraid it will be difficult I’d you want to win.”
Ye Chenyuan tightened his grip on the dagger in his hands. In his sea of consciousness, he asked Venerable Li, “What about divine sense? Can I defeat him with that aspect?”
Venerable Li replied, “Although your divine sense is higher than his, but because he has the ancient Jiang clan meridians, he has an innate resistance to divine sense. If you want to defeat him with divine sense, you must be two realms higher than him. In other words, late stage Foundation Building. Otherwise, your attacks won’t affect him very much.”
Ye Chenyuan’s mood grew even more grave. It seemed that this fight wouldn’t be easy.
“You’re Ye Chenyuan, right?” A black-clothed Jiang Yue smilingly pulled out his spirit weapon: a fan. He fanned himself. “Actually, I really admire you. But in the following match, I won’t be soft on you.”
Ye Chenyuan sighed deeply and calmly returned his greeting. “Dao friend, don’t worry. I will also go all out!”
With this, the two attacked almost simultaneously!
Their figures, one black and one white, moved as fast as lightning. They started with an attitude of going all out, making the sect master softly exclaim in surprise when he glanced over at them.
“What’s wrong?” Yuan Chu followed Moqi Tingfeng’s gaze downward. Also surprised, she thought: Isn’t that Jiang Yue? He was Ye Chenyuan’s future number one little brother. He was an existence with good character and fate. Adding on Jiang Yue’s ancient Jiang clan meridians in addition to his having the guidance of famous teachers ever since he was little, Ye Chenyuan really might not be able to win…
Yuan Chu sighed. Fine, the top two hundred wasn’t bad. She had already decided to accept Ye Chenyuan as her disciple anyway.
Just as she was about to give up, Ye Chenyuan was sent flying by Jiang Yue’s attack. If Ye Chenyuan hadn’t stabbed his dagger into the edge of the platform at the last moment, he would have fallen down from the fourth platform!
However, even if he hadn’t fallen down, he wasn’t doing well.
The entrance competition didn’t restrict them from using spiritual pills and medicine. After all, dealing with multiple matches in one day required massive amounts of spiritual energy to be replenished.
But most people wouldn’t use many spiritual medicines during the competition since the entrance competition wasn’t the only way to enter the inner sect. The goal of its existence was to select the elites and choose personal disciples.
Although the people who were eliminated couldn’t become personal disciples, as long as they were assessed by the inner sect, they could still enter the inner sect and then wait another three years.
Thus, few would use spiritual pills in this kind of competition. After all, spiritual medicine was very valuable.
But Jiang Yue was different; his family’s wealth was vast. Plus, this time he was aiming for the sect master’s personal disciple, so not to mention spirit replenishing pills, he even ate fourth rank spirit congealing pills like candy. All of Ye Chenyuan’s attacks on his sea of consciousness were slowly resolved. Moreover, Jiang Yue’s true power was already higher than his with a very stable foundation… Ye Chenyuan discovered he wasn’t Jiang Yue’s opponent at all.
The sect master stroked his beard in regret. “This child isn’t bad. However, under the limits of his cultivation, he’ll probably stop here.”
Yuan Chu didn’t get the chance to speak before Long Xiu smiled ambiguously and said, “What did I say? The disciple a certain someone regarded highly of didn’t even reach the top one hundred!”
Yuan Chu frowned at her words. “I’m still better than a certain someone. The disciple she decided on was eliminated on the first day!”
“Enough, enough…” Moqi Tingfeng was somewhat helpless. That the only two Nascent Soul peak masters in the sect, who had an age difference of two hundred years, could actually bicker like this was such a headache.
Yuan Chu was too lazy to argue with Long You and broke eye contact first. At this moment, Ye Chenyuan was knocked down once more and then got up again.
Jiang Yue covered his face, feeling extremely unwell. His opponent’s true strength had exceeded what he had imagined. Even if he was continuously eating spirit congealing pills to heal, he still wasn’t having an easy time.
Originally, he saw that he was stronger than Ye Chenyuan in every aspect; this would be an easy victory. But he never thought that his opponent’s divine sense would be higher than his own. The spirit congealing needle couldn’t defend against him. His abundance of pills was now reduced to almost nothing.
Seeing Ye Chenyuan stand up again after receiving an attack with all his strength put into it, Jiang Yue frowned, his face pale. “You should admit defeat. You can’t be my rival! And even if you’re eliminated now, with your strength you’ll definitely enter the inner sect. You’ll still have a chance three years later. Why must you fight so desperately?”
“I can’t wait three years…”
Ye Chenyuan used all his power to stand up. After knowing that Wei Shengji also wanted to become Master’s disciple, he was all the more unwilling to wait!
He wanted to become Master’s only disciple, to seize first place. He wouldn’t give someone else any chances!
