Chapter 825 Newcomer Ceremony
Without a doubt, the Wind Pavilion was enveloped in a festive atmosphere in recent days. After all, the position of Wind Pavilion Master had been vacant for years, resulting in the Wind Pavilion becoming a loose pan of sand. Without the command of a pavilion master, the Wind Pavilion ranked last among the four pavilions.
The other three pavilions, especially the Fire Pavilion and the Mountain Pavilion, were constantly stealing young talents from the Wind Pavilion, which was the main reason why the Wind Pavilion was weakening over the years.
And now, there was finally a new pavilion master, and his strength was quite extraordinary. Obviously, this was a great thing for the Wind Pavilion.
As for the groups that had originally supported Chen Beifeng, they began to quickly split up, including the pavilion commander Jin Teng, who previously followed Chen Beifeng's command. At this moment they were in a very awkward situation, so they wisely kept quiet and did not dare to make trouble.
Everyone understands that from then on, the Wind Pavilion would belong to Zhou Yuan. And even if Chen Beifeng recovered from his serious injuries, he would most likely be suppressed as well. Perhaps he couldn't even protect his position as deputy ward director. If Chen Beifeng was in such a situation, what about them?
Jin Teng and the rest prayed that Zhou Yuan would forget about them, so how could they dare to make trouble?
The center of Isla de Viento, Lake Espejo.
On the small island in the middle of Mirror Lake, there were two tall towers, one of which was a general affairs building for members of the Wind Pavilion to take on tasks and receive their salaries. The other was the pavilion master tower, but this building had been empty for several years and was only now opened again after Zhou Yuan was promoted to pavilion master.
The pavilion's main tower had been carefully cleaned these two days, and Zhou Yuan had moved out from his small building.
On the courtyard on the roof of the building, Zhou Yuan stood with his hands clasped behind his back. He surveyed the area. Surrounding the clear and sparkling lake were several training fields. At this moment, there were many members of the Wind Pavilion doing their daily routines, practicing and learning from each other.
After a moment, he withdrew his gaze and looked outside the main pavilion building, where there was someone loitering.
“That man's name is Li Jian, right? She is looking for you?" Zhou Yuan turned his head and looked at Ye Bingling, who was next to him.
“You don't need to worry about an ungrateful wolf like him. Now he wants to turn his back on Chen Beifeng and go back.” Ye Bingling sneered coldly.
When Chen Beifeng tried to attack them using the Mark Capturing Rune, Li Jian was the first to join his side. If other people had done this, Ye Bingling would have understood; but she was the one who helped Li Jian get promoted to pavilion commander, and he still betrayed her in the end, which undoubtedly made her angry.
Seeing this, Zhou Yuan casually said to Yi Qiushui next to him: "Then look for an opportunity to remove him from the position of pavilion commander."
In the Wind Pavilion, his words decided everything. Even if he wanted to deal with a pavilion commander, he didn't need anyone's consent.
Yi Qiushui nodded. Zhou Yuan seemed to be the master of the wind pavilion, but in reality she was the one who took care of the numerous affairs. He originally thought that he had gone beyond his authority, so he tried to report everything to Zhou Yuan so that he could make a decision.
But Zhou Yuan only tried for half a day and then refused again and again because he found that compared to these trivial matters, he would rather go find someone to fight with.
Before, when he was deputy ward director, he didn't have so many things to pay attention to, but now he realized that controlling a ward didn't seem to be as enjoyable as he expected.
After seeing Zhou Yuan's resistance to these matters, Yi Qiushui had no choice but to let him become an impromptu manager.
When Xiao Hong, Lu Mingyue, and the other pavilion commanders saw Zhou Yuan withdraw a pavilion commander at will, they couldn't help but let the emotions of reverence rise in their hearts.
"Qiushui, you really are a treasure," Zhou Yuan couldn't help but congratulate Yi Qiushui for taking care of the Wind Pavilion's many affairs in an orderly manner. Without Yi Qiushui, there was no telling what sorry state he would end up in.
Yi Qiushui shot him an angry look. But although the affairs of the Wind Pavilion were a bit cumbersome, it was not a big deal to her. She had secretly controlled Xiaoxuan Prefecture before, so she could easily handle these matters.
“I can help you with these little things, but for the four pavilion conference tomorrow, you have to attend it yourself,” he said.
Zhou Yuan's eyes narrowed slightly when the four pavilion conference was mentioned. “I feel like it's not good at all. Do you know what the four pavilion conference is for?"
Ye Bingling pondered for a moment and said, "I think it has something to do with the upcoming newcomer ceremony."
"Newcomer ceremony?" Zhou Yuan blinked.
Seeing Zhou Yuan's puzzled look, Yi Qiushui couldn't help but clutch his head and gritted his teeth. “Didn't I collect all the information yesterday and put it on your desk? Didn’t you read it?”
Zhou Yuan laughed awkwardly and yawned towards the sky.
Yi Qiushui no longer had the energy to criticize the pavilion master's irresponsibility. She explained: “Every year, proud new heavens from various areas will come to Tianyuan Utopia. They will arrive at the four pavilions after being checked. “This is the ceremony for newcomers.”
“The newcomer ceremony is extremely important to the four pavilions, because it represents fresh blood and there are also some good seedlings among them. If you can take them in, they will greatly improve the strength of the Wind Pavilion.”
“So the four pavilions will always compete for a share in each newcomer ceremony.”
"But not the wind pavilion."
"What do you mean?"
“Previously, according to the regulations, each of the four pavilions had a 25% participation, which could not be exceeded. However, since the Wind Pavilion did not have a pavilion master, he was naturally not eligible to participate in the pavilion master conference. In the end, Lu Xiao and Han Yuan swallowed the portion of Wind Pavilion newcomers,” Ye Qiushui explained.
Zhou Yuan frowned. "How much have they swallowed?"
"Almost everyone," Ye Bingling replied, his face a little worried. “At the annual newcomer ceremony, the Fire Pavilion and the Mountain Pavilion were always the fastest to catch people. In the end, some unattractive talents were thrown to the side of the Wind Pavilion. "So in the last two years, our base has gone from bad to worse."
The corners of Zhou Yuan's mouth twitched. Lu Xiao and Han Yuan's manners were too ugly.
Zhou Yuan thought for a moment and then calmly said, “I can’t handle how they were in the past, but now that I am the pavilion master, they have to return everything that belongs to us.”
"I don't take advantage of anyone, so no one can take advantage of me."
He had now become the pavilion master of the Wind Pavilion, so this was his territory. Even if they were only Divine Dwelling stage experts, in the future, one of them might occupy a high position in the Tianyun Region. Naturally, he had to defend his part.
Yi Qiushui and Ye Bingling exchanged a look. If this were the case, the next day's pavilion keynote would be a great event.
"There is one more problem."
Yi Qiushui bit her red lips lightly and said, “Even if we recover our share, I am worried that there is still no way to win against the Fire Pavilion and the Mountain Pavilion at the newcomer ceremony. Nine out of ten of the top talents will choose them. As a result, we can only get unwilling newcomers.”
"Because?" Zhou Yuan asked.
Ye Bingling sighed helplessly and said in a heavy voice: "For the salary."
