1688 The Prizes for the Inner Disciple Competition
Before You Chuyun came here, he had done a risk assessment. Although Chu Yunfan was being targeted by Wang Yifan and looked like was in a dangerous situation, Wang Yifan couldn’t just attack as he pleased. And Chu Yunfan had Yi Yunyao, who was a true disciple, backing him up. This reduced the threat Wang Yifan posed to the minimum. Although it was still dangerous, it was not impossible for Chu Yunfan to come out on top.
Chu Yunfan looked at You Chuyun with a faint smile and then said, “In that case, tell me why I should accept you. What can you do for me?”
You Chuyun answered, “Senior Chu, although you’re powerful, there are some things that are better when working together. There are many things that I can do for you. I can gather information for you. In the future, when you become a true disciple, I can help you manage your mountain residence. On top of that, after you’ve participated in the inner disciple competition, it’ll only be a matter of time before you become an elite disciple. You will surely enter the Imperial Court, whether it is in literature or martial arts. You will need your own people to help you, correct?
“Most importantly, if you intend to fight for the position of sect leader, I will not only help you gain momentum, but more importantly, whether we have enough power will test the management ability of each true disciple. After all, we can’t hand over the Flying Celestials to a martial artist who only knows how to cultivate.”
You Chuyun was straightforward, and Chu Yunfan nodded. He understood that the sect leaders of the Flying Celestials were all talented in both civil and military affairs. They were not just martial artists who only knew how to cultivate and fight. How well these true disciples managed their forces was also an important part of the assessment. Of course, there were some people who didn’t care about this and were only focused on advancing bravely in martial arts.
“Well said.” Chu Yunfan nodded and looked at You Chuyun.
When You Chuyun was talking, he had been staring at You Chuyun to make sure that You Chuyun was not lying. With Chu Yunfan’s current ability, if he couldn’t tell, then it could only be said that You Chuyun’s acting skills were too good. However, he didn’t care because he was confident that You Chuyun wouldn’t be able to withstand a single blow from him even if he wanted to counterattack.
You Chuyun’s words did make sense. Chu Yunfan had to nurture some team members.
“In that case, you shall follow me from now on. In the future, when I come into wealth, you will receive a portion,” Chu Yunfan said.
“Thank you, Senior Brother!” You Chuyun said.
As Chu Yunfan spoke, he waved his finger and a pill fell into You Chuyun’s hand. “This is the Abstract Yang Pill. It’s extremely beneficial to the cultivation of the Abstract Observance Stage. It should be sufficient to help you break through to the late Abstract Observance Stage. Consider it a greeting gift,” he said.
These were the leftover portions from when he made the Sky Demon Pill. In reality, he had quite a lot of these pills. Although the effect was pretty good for ordinary Observers, the effect for him was better than nothing. His strength was now many times stronger than an ordinary Observer, and the effect of such ordinary medicinal pills on him was slim to none.
Therefore, he made these Abstract Yang Pills to reward his future subordinates. He had not expected to put them to use so quickly. He thought that he would only be able to use it when he became an elite disciple. Although these pills were refined from the leftovers of the Sky Demon Pill, they were still rare and good things for ordinary inner disciples. They just were not very useful to Chu Yunfan.
“Thank you, Senior Chu!” You Chuyun was instantly overjoyed.
Why did so many people like to follow the strong? Even if they had to lower their heads and do things for these geniuses, it was because they could obtain all kinds of benefits. Even if it was something that these geniuses and experts did not need, just a little bit of it was a rare good thing for them.
If one had been full of pride before entering the Flying Celestials, then after entering the Flying Celestials, one would no longer have any. All of one’s pride would be polished away.
You Chuyun was a famous genius back in his birthplace. However, in the Flying Celestials, geniuses of his level could be found everywhere. There was even no lack of monstrous geniuses. Those people were the true favored sons of heaven, and it was simply impossible for them to compare with these favored sons of heaven.
Ten years of experience was enough for him to understand that rather than thinking about those useless things, it was better to obediently rely on a monster. On the contrary, his cultivation would advance faster then. Wasn’t this the most beneficial way?
If he didn’t have this Abstract Yang Pill and relied on his strength to step into the late Abstract Observance Stage, he would need at least a year’s time. Now, he only needed at most a month to advance a step further. The late Abstract Observance Stage was considered outstanding among the inner court disciples. And this was just the beginning!
“In the future, I will go through fire and water for you, Senior Brother,” You Chuyun quickly promised.
Chu Yunfan smiled and said, “I don’t need you to go through fire and water for me. There’s only one thing I need right now. Do you know who I should pay attention to in this inner disciple competition? You’ve been in the sect for longer than me, so you should know more about it than I do. Also, I heard that the rewards for this year’s competition seem to be more than before, right?”
You Chuyun hurriedly nodded. “That’s right. In the past, the rewards for the inner sect competition were just ordinary, but this time is different. I heard that Senior Wang Yifan suggested that it be several times more generous than before. Not only is there a million middle-grade spirit stones, but there’s also a Flying Celestial Fruit and a powerful top-grade spirit weapon.”
Chu Yunfan compared this to what he knew. It was indeed several times richer. In the past, the winner would only be given 200,000 middle-grade spirit stones, but this year, there was an extra million. This was simply a windfall.
“What is the Flying Celestial Fruit?” Chu Yunfan asked.
“The Flying Celestial Fruit grows on a divine tree on the Flying Celestial Peak, the main peak of the sect. It only blooms and bears fruit once every thirty-six years, and only thirty-six Flying Celestial Fruits are produced each time. Only the sect’s grand elders get to enjoy the fruit. It can cleanse one’s meridians and marrow, improve one’s aptitude, and improve one’s cultivation at the same time. It’s not something that can be simply bought.
“Though, I do wonder why it’s being used as a reward this year…” You Chuyun mused.
