Chapter 17 – Master Is Angry
“Impudent!” Suddenly, a wave of pressure even more powerful than the two weighed down on them. Moqi Tingfeng slowly appeared upon black clouds, his displeased gaze sweeping over Yuan Chu. “Being discourteous, you still don’t withdraw?”
Only now did Yuan Chu humph at him as she stood behind Moqi Tingfeng.
Jiang Li greeted Moqi Tingfeng. “Sect Master, you have to give our young master justice, please! Our young master is clearly stronger than that person, yet he was hurt by him. He definitely cultivates some harmful skill. Asking Sect Master to reject this person’s competition qualifications!”
“For what?” Yuan Chu couldn’t help shielding Ye Chenyuan. “They’re both unconscious right now. At most, it’s a tie!”
“Hmph. Our young master wouldn’t lose. A tie is even more impossible!”
However, at this moment, the motionless Ye Chenyuan coughed twice. The sound seemed particularly sudden in the moment. Everyone looked over. They simply couldn’t believe that Ye Chenyuan hadn’t fainted after such a serious injury…
“Are you okay?” Hearing his voice, Yuan Chu hurriedly ran over to Ye Chenyuan’s side. But upon seeing this, Moqi Tingfeng stopped her. He told everyone,
“The competition’s rules. Anyone who loses consciousness, dies, or falls off the platform loses. If this child can still stand up, this round is his win.”
“Sect Master!” Jiang Li was very unsatisfied. If it was an ordinary sect, the other party would’ve given the Jiang family face and went with the flow to reject Ye Chenyuan’s competition qualifications, biased to let the Jiang family win. However, the other party was Myriad Sword Sect’s sect master. The Myriad Sword Sect was the head of the ten great immortal sects, and they were famous for following rules. It seemed that if the opponent stood up, then their Jiang family would lose today…
Thinking of this, he furiously glared Ye Chenyuan where he lay blood-soaked on the ground. It was all because of this brat! If not for him, based on their young master’s true power, he definitely could’ve become the sect master’s inner disciple!
If looks could kill, Ye Chenyuan would’ve died a hundred times in this moment.
But he wouldn’t surrender.
Right now, Ye Chenyuan was in an entirely unconscious state. However, there was one sentence he heard. That was, as long as he stood up, it was his win…
Thinking of this, his hands braced against the ground. One of his hands was twisted into a strange position. The onlookers felt pain just by looking at it.
Why was this necessary? Encountering an influential family like the Jiang family, a smart person might have directly surrendered. If the Jiang family remembered his kindness, perhaps he would have gained even more benefits. However, this fellow didn’t get it. He insisted on clashing with their young master. Now, even if he did win, he would become the target of public criticism. Perhaps no peak master would dare to accept him.
Ye Chenyuan shook his head. Everything appeared in double vision. He couldn’t see anyone clearly, nor could he figure out where he was. He only knew his sea of consciousness was injured, and his head felt like it would split. He only knew he really wanted to just lie down and sleep, never to wake up.
However, in this moment, he smelled a sweet milky fragrance. That fragrance was the sweetness he had never felt before in his ten years of cold and desolate life…
He wanted to hold onto it forever. He had to win! Finally, Ye Chenyuan stood up!
Even with injuries all over his body, he still stood up. This willpower was truly admirable!
Moqi Tingfeng narrowed his eyes. Despite Jiang Li’s gloomy expression, he calmly said, “Okay, this fight, Ye Chenyuan wins.”
With this, he turned and disappeared. And as Ye Chenyuan fell down once more, Yuan Chu stably held him up.
Now, Ye Chenyuan was a bit clear-headed, his head no longer assaulted with wave upon wave of dizziness. He could even see Yuan Chu’s face.
“Master…” He laughed hoarsely. “I won…”
After which, he fainted and knew nothing more.
When Ye Chenyuan awoke, the sky was already bright. He panicked and sat up. Displeased, Yuan Chu said, “Who told you to sit up? Go lie down!”
He turned his head. He could see Yuan Chu standing at the doorway with her hands at her hips. He was first a bit ashamed and then anxious as he asked,
“Master, did I win?”
Yuan Chu really didn’t know what to tell him. Ye Chenyuan truly was a very clingy person, but at the same time, he also had a good understanding of drawing on advantages and avoiding disadvantages. Basically, he was two-faced and cunning. Why was it that right now, she couldn’t see the two-faced, only the dumb? Where was that male lead from her last life who battled her in wits and bravery go?
With concern, she sat down next to his bed. “Win win win, you almost lost your life! And you’re still worried about the competition?!”
Ye Chenyuan felt a bit guilty seeing her anger. In fact, he valued his life very much. However, during the competition, he only had to remember that if he lost, someone would choose Yuan Chu as his master before him. He only had to think of this, and he wasn’t willing to admit defeat even in the face of death!
But under Master’s rage, how should he deceive her?
“Hmph!” Yuan Chu’s head turned the other way.
“Hmph!” Yuan Chu turned her head the other way, and her delicate lips were stuck up in a pout. That “fiendish” look was very “scary”.
Ye Chenyuan suppressed the impulse to pull her cheek. He lowered his head and earnestly said,
“I’m sorry, Master. I shouldn’t have been like that. I was wrong, I won’t do it again…”
When he finished speaking, he coughed a few times. Yuan Chu’s eyes quickly swept over. Seeing his overly pale face, she couldn’t quite bear it. He was clearly a young boy, but he was fiercer to himself than those old devils. It was really…
He was already like this; she couldn’t truly blame him. Although her face was stiff, her tone had relaxed.
“You really won’t do it again?”
“I won’t! I guarantee, Master. I will never let you worry again!”
Yuan Chu stared at him wide-eyed. “Who’s worried about you! Hmph!”
“Yes, yes, everything Master says is right.”
Ye Chenyuan had a look of complete obedience. Yuan Chu realized that even if she wanted to be angry, she couldn’t.
She sighed, her voice full of arrogance as she said, “Enough, just don’t be like this in the future, okay? You scared me to death! When I brought you back, you were just like a dead person!”
Seeing her stormy expression begin to clear up, Ye Chenyuan hurriedly nodded. “I will definitely remember Master’s teachings!”
Yuan Chu nodded as she pulled out a medicinal pill.
Ye Chenyuan obediently ate it, filling his role of the complacent child.
Yuan Chu sighed again. “Enough, rest well. Don’t go to the following competitions. I’ll accept you as my disciple anyway.”
“What?” The smile on Ye Chenyuan’s face suddenly changed. “I… why can’t I go?”
Yuan Chu rolled her eyes. “Have you seen yourself? The remaining one hundred people are all the elites of the group, and the individual competitions start tomorrow. You can’t recover in one day. Do you possibly want to fight for your life again?”
Only now did Ye Chenyuan realize there wasn’t a trace of spiritual energy left in his body. Cracks had appeared in his sea of consciousness because of the extreme pressure.
