Chapter 22 – Seen Naked
A top-grade spirit weapon was enough for him to use until Nascent Soul! It was truly extravagant!
Wei Shengji wordlessly swallowed his drool. Just as he was thinking about how he should agree, Ye Chenyuan thought he was hesitating, so he added without a second of delay.
“Two spirit weapons.”
“Deal!” Wei Shengji took the chance. He still wasn’t sure what Ye Chenyuan wanted him to do, but his miserly self expressed that as long as it wasn’t murder and chaos, he could agree to any condition!
Seeing him nod, Ye Chenyuan laughed relaxedly.
“What do you want me to do?” Wei Shengji belatedly asked.
“I want you to fight your way to the finals!”
“Hmm?” Wei Shengji frowned at him. “Then you want me to lose to you in the last round?”
This wouldn’t be an issue. Wei Shengji thought to himself. Compared to two spirit weapons which suited his attribute, first and second place weren’t any different to him.
“No.” Ye Chenyuan shook his head. He couldn’t have his opponent let him win in front of all the elders and the sect master. Even if he still won, his master would lose all face.
Thus, he said, “I’m giving you these things because I want you to promise to use your full strength to fight to the final round. If you get first place and the privilege to choose your master, I want you to choose anyone other than Frost Sword Peak’s Yuan Chu.”
His calm words were a bit unfathomable to Wei Shengji. “That simple?!”
Ye Chenyuan gave him so many benefits just for him to compete seriously and not choose that six-year-old as his master? This… Ye Chenyuan was actually just a big spender, wasn’t he?
Ye Chenyuan nodded. “Right, and you already agreed.”
“I did agree…” Wei Shengji was still in disbelief. “But what if another dark horse fights me for first place?”
Ye Chenyuan confidently laughed at these words.
“As long as you can fight to the final round, I will do my best as well and then fight you in the final round!”
He had promised his master to not use all his strength. But in this competition, he had already eliminated the most threatening two competitors. He believed the remaining people, other than Wei Shengji, wouldn’t require him to use his full strength.
This way, as long as he and Wei Shengji both reached the final round, the possibility of someone else choosing Master was eliminated. He just needed to use his true strength and go all out.
Amid Wei Shengji’s confusion, the elder was already calling Ye Chenyuan’s name. Ye Chenyuan nodded at Wei Shengji and walked onto the platform.
His opponent was a twelve-thirteen-year-old girl with short hair. Like him, her cultivation was tenth stage Qi Refining.
Ye Chenyuan smiled as he perfunctorily greeted her. But after the greeting came an agile attack that showed a whole different side of him! “Thanks for letting me win.” He had effortlessly defeated his opponent.
Just as he expected, it wasn’t very difficult to defeat the people he encountered in the following days. Every win let him advance a platform higher. It wouldn’t be long before he reached the final round.
And to regulate the hidden danger, he cultivated in the Sky Pearl every day instead of sleeping. A day outside was a month in the Sky Pearl; going like this, he’d definitely be fully recovered by the final round!
But Ye Chenyuan’s only disappointment was… Master never entered the Sky Pearl after that first time…
As a matter of fact, since Ye Chenyuan shared the Sky Pearl with Yuan Chu, as long as she wasn’t any farther than a thousand li (500 km) from him, she could enter the Sky Pearl with just a thought and share the resources within it.
Yet after Yuan Chu sealed Ye Chenyuan’s divine meridians, she never entered the Sky Pearl again. However, he quickly recovered from his disappointment. Master must not have wanted to interrupt his cultivating, so she didn’t come to visit him. Therefore, he should work diligently!
Thus, in the Sky Pearl, Ye Chenyuan doubled the difficulty of his devilish training! At this, Venerable Li was both grateful and depressed. Grateful because this host of his was a good successor with ambition and good innate talent. Depressed, as he was being so serious because he was someone else’s disciple!
He had urged him for so long, yet he didn’t choose him as his master. In the end, he was taken by a six-year-old. How infuriating!
As he practiced his movement technique in a formation, Ye Chenyuan shivered. Weird, could it get cold in the Sky Pearl?
Finally, Ye Chenyuan, who had practiced in the formation for seven days without stopping in the formation, collapsed from exhaustion. He rested in the Sky Pearl. After being at the pinnacle of tiredness, sleep still was the best way of regulating. And now, Yuan Chu entered the Sky Pearl.
As the other owner of the Sky Pearl, Yuan Chu only needed to think and she could see inside the Sky Pearl. Naturally, she saw all of Ye Chenyuan’s diligence. She was very grateful for it, but her reason for not entering was very simple…
Because Ye Chenyuan had a habit. Usually, when he was tired, he’d take off his clothes and bathe in the spiritual spring. He’d take off his clothes! She’d see it very clearly!
Yuan Chu’s heart collapsed at the thought of this! She had seen the ten-year-old male lead naked! As the first female to see the male lead naked, did she have to take responsibility?
The more she thought about it, the worse her headache got. And she had accidentally stolen the male lead’s first kiss. Although she never mentioned it, she still remembered it! She feared… was the male lead still innocent?
Later, she must kindly remind him about this. In the Sky Pearl, he should just use a cleaning art when he’s dirty. Why must he take a bath?
It was fine since he was still young, but what about the future when he became a heaven-shaking lady-killer? Should she look or not?
Seeing Yuan Chu’s expression twist, Venerable Li flew over.
“Little girl, you’re worrying?”
Yuan Chu stopped and decided to remind Ye Chenyuan through Venerable Li. This kind of thing was hard to say directly.
“Venerable Li… You know I’m sharing the Sky Pearl with Ye Chenyuan right now.”
“Yes, is there anything wrong?” Venerable Li curiously hovered around her.
Yuan Chu coughed dryly twice. “It’s nothing much, just… Be more careful when you say bad things about me to Ye Chenyuan because I can see and hear everything in the Sky Pearl with just a thought!”
She emphasized the words “see” and “everything”. She had said all this; Venerable Li should understand what she meant, right? Even if he didn’t, after he told him, Ye Chenyuan should be more alert the next time he undressed, right?
Who would’ve known that after Venerable Li heard this, he grimaced and said, “Little girl, I didn’t mean to say you were short and fat. You wouldn’t warn me specifically because of that, right? I’m already this old, can’t you be a bit more tolerant toward me?”
Yuan Chu fell down in laughter! She tried to keep herself together, her face red.
“Just… tell Ye Chenyuan what I said when he wakes up!”
