Chapter 823 Pavilion Master of the Wind Pavilion
"Congratulations, pavilion master!"
As Chi Jing's clear voice rang out, the countless figures around the lake cupped their fists in greeting and bowed respectfully. There were also deafening voices of congratulations.
Many eyes focused on Zhou Yuan, curiously studying the new talent from the Tianyuan region who amazed the world with his feat.
Within the Tianyuan Region, the position of the pavilion master of the Wind Pavilion was not low and was higher than that of the prefecture lords. If one were promoted to pavilion master, one's status and identity would be equal to that of an elder of the elder committee.
This situation was quite rare in the Tianyuan region because the elders of the elder committee were almost all Nascent Source stage experts. If it were somewhere else, they would have become an influential leader of an area. Therefore, the pavilion masters of the four pavilions possessed a special status. They could only be chosen from an institution like the four pavilions that brought together sky-proud youth from all over the world.
Zhou Yuan stood in the void without a wave of emotion on his face and only bowed with a cupped fist salute in each direction.
Then, he landed on the side of the Wind Pavilion.
There, Ye Bingling, Yi Qiushui, Liu Zhixuan, and many members of the Wind Pavilion quickly greeted him.
"Welcome, pavilion master!"
Everyone bowed one after another with respectful looks on their faces, and even the neutral members immediately showed their loyalty.
Evidently, everyone was very clear about the future of the Wind Pavilion, and Chen Beifeng had become the past.
"I didn't think you would become my superior." Ye Bingling revealed a faint smile on her icy and beautiful face.
Two months ago, when Zhou Yuan had just arrived at the Wind Pavilion, Ye Bingling would have never thought of this scene. At that time, he thought that it would be very difficult for someone like Zhou Yuan, who had suddenly appeared, to gain a foothold in the Wind Pavilion. Who would have thought that he would not only settle down, but also win the position of pavilion master!
Zhou Yuan felt a little embarrassed. After all, it could be said that he blocked Ye Bingling's path and snatched his place.
Although he had achieved this with his own ability, their relationship was quite good, so it would inevitably become a little awkward.
"Don't worry, when I become the main pavilion master, I will give you the position of pavilion master," Zhou Yuan said.
Ye Bingling rolled her eyes.
This guy is too ambitious. Has he just become the pavilion master and is already coveting the position of chief pavilion master? Do you really think that Lu Xiao, Han Yuan and Mu Liu, the other three pavilion masters, are made of clay?
In front of these three people, Chen Beifeng didn't even have the qualifications to be arrogant.
On the Fire Pavilion side, Lu Xiao remained silent as he looked at the collapsed platform in the middle of the lake, but anyone could see that his face was turning dark.
His plan had been ruined.
Chen Beifeng's defeat not only caused their plan to fail, but also cut off their Heavenly Spirit Sect's best chance of getting their hands on the Wind Pavilion.
However, despite the fury in his heart, Lu Xiao still did not lose his temper. He took a deep breath to suppress his anger and said, "Interesting, I didn't expect to miss something."
Han Yuan also frowned. "Since a pavilion master has appeared in the Wind Pavilion, it will undoubtedly have an impact on the structure of the four pavilions."
Previously, the Fire Pavilion had joined forces with the Mountain Pavilion, and the Forest Pavilion was weak on its own. As for the Wind Pavilion, it was like a tray of loose sand, unable to come together. This led to the Fire and Mountain Pavilions dominating the four pavilions and obtaining the greatest benefits and rights of expression.
But now there was a new pavilion master in the Wind Pavilion. Once Zhou Yuan joined the Wind Pavilion, the weight that the Wind Pavilion had on other pavilions would also increase as a result.
And that could harm the profits of the other pavilions.
“The Wind Pavilion has been in disarray for too long and talented people have joined our side. It would be difficult for them to recover, even with Zhou Yuan. There is nothing to fear,” Lu Xiao said indifferently. "And one pavilion master is probably not enough to shake the current structure of the four pavilions."
Although Zhou Yuan's victory against Chen Beifeng was wonderful, for Lu Xiao and others, it was just a good show.
After witnessing Zhou Yuan's strength, Lu Xiao would pay more attention to Zhou Yuan, but it was not enough to make him fear Zhou Yuan.
Han Yuan nodded and laughed: "Then I hope this new pavilion master knows what to do."
As the clamor sounded around the lake, at the highest point of the audience, Sect Master Xuan Kun's eyes flashed. He stood up slowly and said, “Grand Elder Chi Jing, since the Wind Pavilion has a new pavilion master, then the main pavilion master battle should also be included on the agenda.”
“In the past, you had always postponed the main pavilion master battle on the grounds that there was no pavilion master in the Wind Pavilion, but now you can't continue to do so, right? If so, the other three great elders would probably disagree.”
Sect Master Xuan Kun remained calm and did not seem disappointed by the Heavenly Spirit Sect's defeat; Instead, in the blink of an eye, he set his sights higher.
As long as the main pavilion master position was controlled by the Heavenly Spirit Sect, they could still take control of the four pavilions in the future.
Chi Jing cast a sidelong glance at Sect Master Xuan Kun. She naturally saw through his plan. But this time she didn't disagree and instead nodded gently. "Then let's set it for eight months from now."
Sect Master Xuan Kun coveted the position of head pavilion master, and she was the same.
She had objected in the past because she knew that the position would certainly fall into the hands of the Heavenly Spirit Sect, but now it was not the same. Zhou Yuan's appearance gave Chi Jing hope.
Although there might be a difference in strength between Zhou Yuan and the other pavilion masters. She believed that if she gave her younger younger brother some time, it would be difficult to say who is the strongest and the weakest. No matter what, he was a disciple chosen by his master.
Seeing Chi Jing agree so easily, even someone like Sect Master Xuan Kun was shocked for a moment. He immediately cast his abyss-like eyes on Zhou Yuan's figure in the distance.
Could it be that he was counting on the new pavilion master of the Wind Pavilion?
However, although Zhou Yuan was quite capable, how could he compare to Lu Xiao and Han Yuan?
Suspicious thoughts came to Sect Master Xuan Kun's mind. Then he said in an indifferent voice: “Eight months is probably too long. I heard that the other regions are already preparing for the nine regions tournament. “No one is sure when the tournament will be scheduled, so it is best to complete the main pavilion master battle within two months so that the newly appointed main pavilion master has time to unify the four pavilions.”
Although she didn't know exactly what Chi Jing was planning, the cunning old fox Xuan Kun still had no intention of letting her do as she wished.
Chi Jing shook his head. "Two months is too soon, then four months."
He looked at Sect Master Xuan Kun and said with a smile, “Sect Master Xuan Kun is too impatient.”
Sect Master Xuan Kun chuckled, “I'm not impatient, I'm just worried that it's too late. I don't want our Tianyuan Region to rank last in the nine regions tournament because of this. Without a doubt, this would make our supreme sovereign lose face.”
"But since Grand Elder Chi Jing has said so, let's set it for four months from now."
Finally he took a step back. He had managed to cut the originally suggested time in half, which could already be counted as a small victory.
Finally, Chi Jing stepped forward and scanned the crowd. His clear voice rang in everyone's ears again.
“The pavilion chief for the Wind Pavilion has been decided, but the position of pavilion chief chief of the four pavilions has been vacant for too long. “So, after discussion with the other grand elders, four months later we will open the main pavilion master battle in response to the upcoming nine-region tournament.”
"And in this battle for the position of main pavilion master, the winner will be rewarded with a small holy technique."
These words seemed simple, but when they spread, the originally clamorous crowd fell silent. After a few breaths, a monstrous uproar broke out as if the world was about to collapse.
The uproar was much greater than when Zhou Yuan won the position of pavilion master.
