This had to do with the difficulty of cultivation. In fact, Jiu Lang could ’ve had an upper core elder ’s support, but it didn ’t fall through. Everyone, including Wei Wuyin, had their hearts clench when news spread of a possible backing of an upper-tier core elder. Luckily, the core elder wanted what Jiu Lang wasn ’t willing to give: her primal yin and body.
If she had the backing of that elder, Wei Wuyin was sure he ’d already be dead, so would all her enemies. There was no doubt in his mind. That was the influence and power of upper-tier core elders.
As for Elder Ji, his actions declared his intent.
Elder Ji turned towards Wei Wuyin and slightly smiled.
Wei Wuyin couldn ’t help but nod in approval, then his eyes flashed with various faint illusory images. No one knew he was in the crowd or noticed him watching, just Elder Ji, so he decided to thoroughly pull this elder into his fold.
Elder Ji ’s eyes widened in shock. This reaction caught the eyes of elders who were curious about his actions. A load of transmissions came into his crystal suddenly, but he didn ’t answer. He calmed himself down and shut down communication with everyone. His eyes turned calm and he went back to acting as protector.
Inwardly, his heart was beating fiercely. ”He ’s reached Yin Form before thirty?! Incredible cultivation talent! To rise from an honorary disciple to a core disciple, birth metal qi and establish yin! His future…if I side with him early, perhaps the hardest hurdle of the Qi Condensation Realm, the sixth phase of False Reality, would be a possibility! ” As his mind cycled through various scenarios, he realized no core disciple could hope to match Wei Wuyin ’s momentum in the last two hundred years, a span of time inclusive of four core disciple generations.
The subtle actions started to become blatant. Su Mei in the battle felt odd. She could feel essence energy funneling through the soles of her feet. It entered her body, pure and powerful, and strengthened her qi and physique.
The essence energy originated from the platform and miraculously increased her body ’s durability and toughness. As she circulated her qi, she also noticed that her recovery rate had increased. She was shocked at what was happening.
”Blatant cheating! ” An inner elder a part of Tao Gui ’s faction, having supported him, shouted in fury. The rage in his eyes were clear, but had no outlet.
”Cheating? Pfft. You ’re blind, Elder Ji would never cheat. He ’s only ensuring that he can better save our sect ’s disciples by connecting them with the platform ’s defensive energy. Acting as he should. ” The female outer elder from earlier brazenly and shamelessly stated. She was someone from Wei Wuyin ’s faction, so she would obviously shift the narrative.
The earthen energies of the platforms were entering the bodies of Wei Wuyin ’s members throughout. They were suddenly stronger and filled with boundless stamina. Anyone could see that Elder Ji was manipulating the platforms to influence certain members in a positive way.
Not only that…
”Absolutely fucking shameless! ” An inner elder who was a part of Jiu Lang ’s faction cried with grievance. If it was just helping certain members, fine, but the earthen energies were attached to his faction ’s outer disciples. However, instead of receiving a boon, they were weighed down and were acting as if they had to carry a large boulder on their shoulders.
It was appalling as some of his disciples were killed then and there. Their lives reaped because of this disadvantage. Some even had bright futures. This wasn ’t even the start, as some members cried for surrender, but was met with weapons of death as their reply. Then, their dead bodies would be sent into the ground as if it was delayed by an accident.
Wei Wuyin couldn ’t help but grin at this point. To think Elder Ji was so decisive. He hadn ’t obtained the backing of a single core elder before, yet immediately obtained the support of an upper-tier core elder, and one of the top three. It was quite interesting how quick things shift.
The battle for the Outer Competition caused many dismayed words to sling, but no one took it up with Elder Ji. This was clear that none of them had the courage to question him.
Even the other core elders watching remained silent, only lamenting at their failure with gathering intelligence. If they had known that Elder Ji was a part of Wei Wuyin ’s faction, or any faction, they would ’ve elected someone else to take responsibility. Someone neutral.
The first part of the competition soon ended. Su Mei stood proudly on her platform. She was alone and had a blade drenched in blood, her eyes icy-cold yet filled with pride.
The several hundred lone standers proceeded to the next competition. The rest of the participants were divided into ten groups. Ten platforms were used and people entered at random. The fight then was more intense, but with Elder Ji ’s support, Wei Wuyin ’s faction obtained four spots out of ten, with Su Mei occupying one of the platforms.
These ten would be promoted to the inner disciple status, and a few were even crying. One was on his knees, tears falling without end. Another yelled in triumph like a ferocious lion. Su Mei ’s eyes were in a daze as her labored breathing was met with applause. The crowd ’s excitement felt incredible to her, but all she could do was look towards a smiling figure.
Wei Wuyin gave her a smile and an approving nod that said, ’You lived up to and exceeded my expectations. ’
