Chapter 783 Pavilion Attendant Master of the Wind Pavilion
"You will be the deputy director of the Wind Pavilion!"
Everyone looked dumbfounded at the slender figure behind the document files as this sentence spread throughout the spacious golden hall of the palace.
Even Gu Yan stood there with his mouth open, wondering if he had heard wrong.
Wasn't Chi Jing furious before? What changed suddenly?
Behind Gu Yan, Gu Xi's mouth trembled uncontrollably. If it weren't for the shred of rationality left in his mind that made him aware of where he was, he would have already roared out loud.
Shouldn't that rude boy be expelled from Tianyuan Utopia? How can he jump from an ordinary member to a deputy pavilion master?
How crazy was this jump?!
While Gu Yan and Gu Xi were surprised, Yi Yan and Yi Qiushui were not much better. Especially Yi Yan, who immediately exclaimed, “Lady Chi Jing, please don't joke. How can Zhou Yuan become deputy pavilion master?”
He thought that Chi Jing had been deliberately ironic out of anger; Otherwise, it would be difficult to explain the sudden change.
Yi Qiushui also did not dare to offend as he muttered in a low voice, “Lady Chi Jing, it is already an honor for Zhou Yuan to be part of the Wind Pavilion.”
Gu Yan and Gu Xi breathed a sigh of relief when they heard this. They also thought that Chi Jing was simply being ironic.
However, not even a single ripple could be seen on Zhou Yuan's face. He lowered his gaze, giving off a deferential and respectful appearance.
Chi Jing did not pay attention to Yi Yan or Gu Yan. His clear and bright eyes were firmly fixed on Zhou Yuan as he scratched deep marks on the table.
A moment later, the stormy waves in his heart gradually calmed down as he said indifferently, “I'm not joking. The fact that Zhou Yuan was able to defeat Mo Yuan at the middle stage of Divine Dwelling is already a proof of his talent. “He has the qualifications to become a deputy ward master.”
A look of disbelief crossed Yi Yan and Yi Qiushiu's faces as they finally realized that Chi Jing was serious.
The position of pavilion master was currently vacant and there were only two deputy pavilion masters, who were currently the highest ranked in the Wind Pavilion. If Zhou Yuan became a deputy pavilion master, wouldn't that be equivalent to reaching the sky in a single step?
On the other hand, Gu Yan's face turned uncontrollably pale. "Lady Chi Jing, how can an outsider who knows nothing be eligible to become one of the deputy pavilion masters of the Wind Pavilion?"
Expressionlessly, Chi Jing uttered, “If I say he is eligible, he is eligible.”
Gu Yan froze, his eyes flashing with fury. He didn't know why Chi Jing would suddenly change his mind. It felt like he was being played with.
“Even Mo Yuan is not qualified to become a deputy master of the Wind Pavilion. Even if he has defeated Mo Yuan, it means nothing,” Gu Yan said in a low voice.
"If I say it does, it does." Chi Jing was still cold and indifferent.
Although enraged, Gu Yan also understood Chi Jing's position and status. He had the right to appoint a deputy pavilion director for the Wind Pavilion. In the end, he could only protest, “Although Lady Chi Jing is one of the Five Great Elders, I will definitely report this matter to my sect master!”
He pulled up his sleeve and turned around.
The sect master he was referring to was naturally the sect master of the Heavenly Spirit Sect, who was also one of the five great elders in charge of the Tianyuan region.
Gu Xi quickly followed him, casting a fierce glance at Zhou Yuan before leaving.
Chi Jing did not raise his eyes even once during his departure.
Once the two left, Yi Yan and Yi Qiushui exchanged a puzzled look. Likewise, they couldn't understand why Chi Jing would have a sudden change of attitude towards Zhou Yuan, but ultimately, it was a good thing.
“Zhou Yuan, hurry up and thank Lady Chi Jing,” Yi Yan reminded.
Zhou Yuan nodded and said respectfully, "Thank you, dear."
Chi Jing glanced at Zhou Yuan, and then said to Yi Yan and Yi Qiushui: "You two go out first, I have something to say to Zhou Yuan."
Yi Qiushui and Yi Yan could see the confusion in each other's eyes, but they did not dare to ignore the order and immediately left the golden palace hall.
After leaving, Yi Yan's face was still crossed with disbelief as he continued to shake his head. He was clearly still upset about what had happened inside.
“Why would Lady Chi Jing give the position of deputy pavilion director to Zhou Yuan?” Yi Qiushui couldn't help but ask.
The status of the Wind Pavilion master was equivalent to an elder like Yi Yan, and the position of deputy pavilion master was not much lower. If Zhou Yuan were a Nascent Source stage expert, Yi Yan would not be surprised by this treatment, but was merely a mid-stage Divine Dwelling practitioner!
Has something like this happened before?
Yi Yan couldn't help but mutter, "Could... Lady Chi Jing have taken a liking to Zhou Yuan?"
Yi Qiushui immediately blushed and said irritably, “Grandpa, what are you talking about? What kind of status does Lady Chi Jing have? How high are your standards? How could she… I’m not saying that Zhou Yuan is not good, but this is impossible?”
Yi Yan smiled uncomfortably and then turned to look at the golden palace. If Chi Jing heard what he had said, an attack of suffering would probably await him.
Therefore, he could only continue shaking his head. He finally said, “From the looks of it, maybe Lady Chi Jing wanted to show Gu Yan who is the boss. After all, the Celestial Spirit Sect has often upset or stressed Lady Chi Jing.”
Yi Qiushui nodded. This was the only reason that could explain what happened. But for Zhou Yuan, it was as if a cake had fallen from the sky.
Inside the hall of the golden palace. After Yi Yan and the others left, Chi Jing spoke calmly again: “All secret guards, withdraw.”
The subtle waves of Genesis Qi in the golden palace hall faded away, and Zhou Yuan could also sense that the watchful gazes in the darkness were gone.
He was finally able to breathe a sigh of relief.
He raised his head in amazement because Chi Jing's figure had already mysteriously appeared in front of him like a ghost as he stared at him without blinking.
At the same time, Zhou Yuan could detect an indescribable feeling of oppression gradually spreading from Chi Jing's body.
Chi Jing asked slowly, “You, where did you learn the Primordial Chaos Divine Whetstone Visualization Method?”
When Zhou Yuan secretly activated the Primal Chaos Divine Whetstone Visualization Method, Chi Jing felt a very familiar aura, because she also cultivated this technique…
Under Chi Jing's watchful gaze, the space around Zhou Yuan had solidified, blocking all of his escape. Right now, even if he wanted to blow up his Divine Dwelling, he most likely couldn't do it.
But Zhou Yuan remained surprisingly calm as he replied, “Is there anyone else besides our teacher who can teach the Primordial Chaos Divine Whetstone Visualization Method?”
Chi Jing's expression trembled. Slowly, he said, “Are you saying that my master gave it to you?”
"What proof do you have?"
“Is the visualization method of the Divine Whetstone of Primordial Chaos not enough?” Zhou Yuan asked.
"Is not sufficient."
Zhou Yuan pondered for a moment before reaching out his hand. Light shone on his palm. The next moment, a black speckled brush appeared.
Chi Jing stared at the very familiar Black Brush and touched it gently with a trembling hand. Zhou Yuan could see that his clear and bright eyes had become blurred. Finally, a tear slowly rolled down her cheek.
She murmured with a trembling voice: “The Heavenly Yuan Brush…”
