Chapter 21 – An Uncertain Feeling
Seeing this, Venerable Like said, annoyed, “A month in the Sky Pearl is a day outside. Naturally, your master has gone to participate in the competition!
Before Venerable Li could finish speaking, Ye Chenyuan had already disappeared! He finally remembered he was still in the competition. To think that he had forgotten something so important. Could he make it back in time? He had to!
At this moment, the law enforcement elder had just called Ye Chenyuan’s name. If he didn’t come after the first call, they would automatically go to the next match. If he didn’t come after the second call, it would be counted as forfeiting.
The sect master wasn’t surprised when he didn’t see Ye Chenyuan. After all, he was hurt so badly the day before, even if he did come today he couldn’t get very far.
He asked Yuan Chu, “That boy… how is he?”
Yuan Chu was sitting in her seat bored stiff. “He’s badly injured. He needs to recuperate for about ten days to half a month…”
She wasn’t able to finish speaking when a boy in blue-black clothes appeared at the scene.
“Wait! Which sect’s disciple are you? You cannot fly your sword during the competition!”
Ye Chenyuan hurriedly jumped down from his sword. He greeted the overseeing senior brother.
“Sorry. I’m Ye Chenyuan. I’m late because something came up. I hope that Senior Brother will let me pass.”
“Ye Chenyuan?” The twenty or so year old youth frowned. “You’re that one from yesterday, the one that interfered with all of the platforms’ competition progress with his spiritual waves?”
When he said it like this, Ye Chenyuan was a bit embarrassed. Yesterday… his movements were too big, but because he gained from misfortune, his divine sense was now already at late stage Foundation Building.
Seeing that Ye Chenyuan seemed very honest, he didn’t say anymore and let him through. “Alright, hurry up and go in! They already called your name. If you’re not there the second time they call for you, it counts as forfeiting!”
“I understand. Many thanks, Senior Brother!”
Ye Chenyuan hastily entered.
Yuan Chu really didn’t know what to say when she saw that Ye Chenyuan had actually come. This little brat was too willing to risk his life.
She said to her uncle sect master sitting next to her, “Lord Sect Master, I… have to go do down…”
Moqi Tingfeng glanced at Ye Chenyuan and nodded. “Go.”
Yuan Chu smiled at him and hurriedly slipped away.
Then she appeared in front of Ye Chenyuan.
“Why did you come?”
Yuan Chu looked at him, worried.
“Master!” When Ye Chenyuan saw her, his eyes couldn’t help but light up. “I’m completely healed. I can still continue!”
Plus, he was a bit stronger than before. He could face an eleventh stage Foundation Builder at eighth stage Foundation Building. Now that he was tenth stage Foundation Building, he was filled with even more confidence.
Yuan Chu frowned at his words. With no explanation, she grabbed his hand and reached out with a thread of spiritual force, examining him.
It was clearly an ordinary checkup, but for some reason, today was different.
Ye Chenyuan lowered his head to look down at the hand holding onto his. It was delicate, tender, and adorably chubby. Her fingers were soft, yet her palm was scalding. It was like an electric shock, giving him the immediate impulse to withdraw his hand.
But how could he be willing to let go? He let her spiritual force flow into his body without any resistance. In his mind, he couldn’t help but think of her kiss from that moment of desperation… His face reddened again!
After she finished examining him, she withdrew her hand. “Your body truly has healed, but the hidden injuries still remain. If you’re injured again, they will likely erupt. I don’t recommend continuing. You… eh? Why is your face so red?”
“Huh? Oh, it’s nothing, I… It’s too hot!” Ye Chenyuan realized what he was saying and hastily changed the topic. “Master, how about this… Let me participate in the competition. I guarantee I definitely won’t try to show off or get hurt. Is that okay?”
Seeing how persistent he was, Yuan Chu couldn’t say anything against him. She sighed like a little adult. “Enough. I’ve lost to you! But there’s one thing I have to make clear. All of Myriad Sword Sect knows I’m only six years old. They will not choose me to be their master. You can be at ease!”
Ye Chenyuan didn’t refute her words. He smiled, looking very obedient. “Then, Master, I’ll first go and get ready. It’s almost my turn.”
“Mhm. Go, go. Remember, you can’t overexert yourself!”
“I understand, Master!”
His eyes followed her until she left his sight. Only then did Ye Chenyuan unwillingly pull back his gaze. Master fussed over him because she cared about him. His current situation truly wasn’t suitable for such fierce fighting. However, even if he couldn’t be honorable, he could still use crooked means!
Ye Chenyuan smiled faintly. Only now did he have some of the qualities of the two-faced male lead. After he made up his mind, he turned. With a sweep of his divine sense, he walked towards Wei Shengji, who had just finished his match.
Now, Wei Shengji wore a set of black clothes. As a great perfection Qi Refining cultivator, it was difficult for him to encounter a worthy opponent. The only two he had recognized as his opponents were already eliminated by Ye Chenyuan, so his matches were effortless.
Seeing Ye Chenyuan walk over, he raised his eyebrow slightly. He stared at him, his arms crossed. “Why did you come?”
Yesterday, Ye Chenyuan was badly injured. He had seen it himself. He thought Ye Chenyuan wouldn’t come today, so he had one less formidable opponent. Who would’ve known he still came. Such a pain.
Ye Chenyuan didn’t like him either. But right now… He laughed. “Senior Brother, Wei Shengji, I came to make a deal with you.”
The two walked to a side.
Wei Shengji’s expression was cold. “What are you trying to do?”
Ye Chenyuan replied, “Senior Brother, you’re very short of cultivation resources, right?”
This question triggered a rapid series of changes in Wei Shengji’s expression. His cold face nearly faltered. He wanted to say he wasn’t short of resources, but in reality, he couldn’t even afford another set of clothes to change into.
Ye Chenyuan grew up amid contesting. He knew it all with just a glance.
Wei Shengji angrily retorted, “What does that have to do with you?!”
Ye Chenyuan was definitely mocking him! Thinking of this, Wei Shengji turned to leave, yet he heard Ye Chenyuan laugh and say.
“Junior Brother isn’t talented. Currently, I’m a rank two alchemist. Occasionally, a third rank pill is nothing difficult. If Senior Brother can agree to do one thing for me, I’ll provide the pills you need in the future.”
This was bribery?
Wei Shengji turned, sneering as he raised his chin. “I get it. You know you aren’t my opponent, yet you still want to get first place, so you ran over to bribe me, right?”
Ye Chenyuan kept on smiling. “I’ll add a fire-attribute top-grade spirit weapon.”
This played down sentence stopped Wei Shengji’s ridicule in its tracks.
Spirit weapons were divided into spirit weapons, precious weapons, soul weapons, immortal weapons, and divine weapons.
