Chapter 789 Serving as Deputy Pavilion Master
What Yi Yan said caused a commotion in the crowd of people below.
Even the eyes of Chen Beifeng, who had always seemed completely indifferent, were shining brightly.
Among the four pavilions, only the Wind Pavilion's pavilion master position had been vacant all these years. And in the many years that Chen Beifeng had been in the Wind Pavilion, he had always coveted that position.
However, the Wind Pavilion was still under Chi Jing's control, and Chen Beifeng was on the side of the Heavenly Spirit Sect. This was the reason why Chi Jing had never given him a chance and had instead sent Ye Bingling to suppress him.
But what puzzled him was why Lady Chi Jing, who had always prevented the Wind Pavilion from choosing a new pavilion master, would agree this time.
“Is it because of the pressure from the Heavenly Spirit Sect, the Profound Crystal Clan, and the White Clan?” Chen Beifeng muttered to himself. No matter what the reason, this was a once in a lifetime opportunity.
The pavilion masters of the four pavilions had always enjoyed a status similar to that of the elders of the Tianyuan region. For people of the Divine Dwelling stage, this was the best shortcut to ascend to heaven. Otherwise, if they were to follow the traditional route and become elders, they would have to wait until they reached the Nascent Source stage. And it was unknown how many years of training it would take.
Although the position was said to be an elder position unique to those at the Divine Dwelling stage, the cultivation resources they could enjoy were no less than those of Nascent Source stage elders. Therefore, the pavilion master selection of the four pavilions had always been extremely fierce.
The current Wind Pavilion almost ranked last among the four pavilions. If he were in one of the other three pavilions, Chen Beifeng might not have the strength to compete for the position of pavilion master.
But the good thing was that, in the Wind Pavilion, only Ye Bingling could pose a threat to him. So I had a great opportunity.
As for Zhou Yuan, the new deputy pavilion master, Chen Beifeng didn't care too much. Even if he had displayed his strength in front of him, in truth, his strength could only be used to scare Jin Teng and had no effect on him.
Ye Bingling's pretty eyes also shone, and her stunning face immediately became solemn. He came to the Wind Pavilion on behalf of Lady Chi Jing, and his most important task was to prevent Chen Beifeng from gaining the title of pavilion master.
However, Lady Chi Jing had held onto the position of pavilion master and was unwilling to let it go. Now that he was suddenly thrown out, Ye Bingling needed to fight with all his might this time.
No matter what, he couldn't let Chi Jing down.
Zhou Yuan, who was on the platform, narrowed his eyes slightly. Then, his gaze fell on Chen Beifeng, and he vaguely sensed a dangerous aura from the wave of Genesis Qi emanating from him.
Chen Beifeng was much stronger than Mo Yuan and Jin Teng.
“Since he is in the top 100 of the Divine Dwelling List, he must be strong,” Zhou Yuan muttered to himself.
Zhou Yuan evaluated his own strength and means at this moment, and found that he was not sure of winning if he faced Chen Beifeng now.
This was because some of his trump cards were missing compared to when he was in Cangxuan Heaven.
For example, Silver Shadow. This battle puppet was Zhou Yuan's best trump card, which had helped him turn the situation around many times before. But after he had entered the Divine Dwelling stage, Silver Shadow had almost no effect on him, unless he could make it evolve once again. Although Yaoyao had already deduced the evolution method, Zhou Yuan still did not have time to test it.
The disappearance of the Cangxuan Holy Seal also occurred.
The Decoding Saint Rune, the Earth Saint Rune, and the Heavenly Punishment Rune, as well as the fourth Saint Rune, had returned to the Saint Seal to release the remnant soul of the ancient Cangxuan ancestor hidden in the Cangxuan Saint Rune. But when he later split the Cangxuan Saint Seal, the four Saint Runes also disappeared in the explosion.
To be precise, it was not a disappearance because Zhou Yuan vaguely felt that the four Saint Runes seemed to have been drilled into his body at the moment the Cangxuan Saint Seal was split.
But no matter what Zhou Yuan tried, he couldn't find the four Saint Runes hidden in his body.
So for now, the Saint Runes that he had once relied on were also useless.
And the lack of these trump cards undoubtedly had a considerable impact on Zhou Yuan's combat strength.
“It seems that I also need to practice in these two months. At the very least, my spirit must break through to the materialization stage." Zhou Yuan's spirit was currently at the advanced corporeal stage and was not far from the transformational stage. But if he could make a breakthrough, it would help him a lot.
And if it was possible, he needed to evolve Silver Shadow.
Since arriving in the Tianyuan Region, Zhou Yuan had always been on the go and had been unable to find a quiet time to practice. Now that he had met Senior Sister Chi Jing and joined the Wind Pavilion, he should fully focus on cultivating.
Others may not know it, but he knew well that the selection of the pavilion master in two months was an opportunity that Chi Jing had given him. Therefore, he had to win the position of pavilion master no matter what.
The three people who were eligible to compete for the position of pavilion master had numerous thoughts running through their minds. The other members of the Wind Pavilion were also extremely worried about this, but their eyes constantly flickered between Chen Beifeng and Ye Bingling.
"It seems that we are finally going to have a pavilion master, and if our speculation is correct, it will be Chen Beifeng or Ye Bingling."
“Sigh, so what if we have a pavilion master? Our wind pavilion has been very weak over the years. Which of the other three pavilions gives us any importance?”
"Yes, even if Chen Beifeng and Ye Bingling's strengths were ranked among the deputy pavilion masters of the four pavilions, they would only be considered average."
"It's all because the Heavenly Spirit Sect and the others joined together to empty the Wind Pavilion."
“The current pavilion master of the Mountain Pavilion, Han Yuan, was also from our Wind Pavilion. In the end, however, he joined the Profound Crystal Clan! What an ungrateful wretch!”
“Sigh, people always want to ascend to higher places. "Supreme Sovereign Cang Yuan has been missing for many years, and as a result, Lady Chi Jing's influence in the Tianyuan region has also been affected."
Low murmurs and whispers spread, but the faces of many Wind Pavilion members were a little gloomy, as if the many members were thinking about something unpleasant.
On the high platform, Yi Yan frowned and coughed softly, “I have informed everyone of the news, so those who are qualified to compete, do your best. In two months, Lady Chi Jing will come to watch the battle.”
As his voice faded, he turned to Zhou Yuan and Yi Qiushui and said, “During this time, you must stay on Wind Island.”
Zhou Yuan and Yi Qiushui nodded.
Yi Yan's figure faded and reappeared on the white lion carriage. The white lion walked away with a loud roar.
After Yi Yan left, Chen Beifeng indifferently looked at Zhou Yuan without saying a word, then turned around.
Many members of the Wind Pavilion also couldn't help but laugh to themselves. Generally, according to the rules, if there was a new deputy pavilion master, the other deputy pavilion masters would usually greet him. But it was obvious that Chen Beifeng was not very impressed with Zhou Yuan.
As everyone laughed, they suddenly saw a beautiful silhouette approaching Zhou Yuan.
It was the famous ice beauty of the Wind Pavilion, Ye Bingling.
