1642 One Move Is Enough
Although Chu Yunfan had slaughtered Grand Xia experts who had wreaked havoc in the Violet Thunder Sword Domain like pigs and dogs, they were in fact the cream of the crop among the various small and medium-sized sects and families. They definitely had the talent to enter the Abstract Stage.
Everyone followed Fang Yu’s instructions and split into two groups. Then, balls of light appeared in front of them. They knew that they had to enter if they wanted to take the test. This was especially true for the Golden Cores who saw each other as opponents. There were a total of more than 100,000 of them, but only a few thousand of them could join the Flying Celestials.
By the time they held another recruitment, most of them would have passed the age limit. Such people generally wouldn’t have too high of an achievement, and the Flying Celestials wouldn’t even spare them a glance. Although they were absolute geniuses in the eyes of ordinary people, what the Flying Celestials wanted was the geniuses among geniuses. Ordinary geniuses were not even worth paying attention to.
Everyone jumped in. However, when it was Chu Yunfan’s turn, he did not dive in. After everyone had entered the ball of light, Chu Yunfan was the only one left.
“Why aren’t you going in to take the test?” Fang Yu asked.
“I would like to apply for the inner disciple test,” Chu Yunfan said plainly.
“You?” One of the disciples laughed. “You’re only at the peak of the Golden Core Stage, yet you dare to apply for the inner disciple test? Do you think that the peak Golden Core Stage is only a little bit away from the Abstract Stage?”
“Does the Flying Celestials have a special rule that Golden Cores aren’t allowed to participate in the inner disciple test?” Chu Yunfan asked.
The disciple was immediately stumped by the question. He flew into a rage out of humiliation and berated, “Sharp-tongued brat. The sect did not specify that Golden Cores could only participate in fringe disciples test, but you don’t understand the difference between Golden Core Stage and Abstract Stage. An idiot like you who looks at the sky from the bottom of a well isn’t qualified to participate in any part of the test!”
The disciple released his aura, throwing straight at Chu Yunfan like a storm.
Chu Yunfan was like a small boat under the pressure of this aura. He could capsize at any time, but he didn’t move. He was like a reef, allowing the rain and wind to blow past him as he remained steadfast.
Fang Yu was moved by this sight and a strange look flashed through his eyes. Then, he picked up a bamboo scroll and injected his divine power into it. A light screen appeared in front of him, showing Chu Yunfan’s identity information.
“Chu Yunfan is from the Violet Thunder Prefecture. He’s recommended by Senior Yi Yunyao.” Fang Yu read this aloud and was instantly stunned.
Not only Fang Yu, but even the other disciples looked at Chu Yunfan in astonishment. They recalled that the Violet Thunder Prefecture was a province that had been conquered by Grand Xia just last year. It was said that there was a serious gap in martial arts in that place. It had been many years since there had been a master. Even a Golden Core was already considered a peerless master there, and a Core Former was already seen as a kingdom guardian.
In their eyes, this was a joke. It was simply laughable. However, it was precisely because they knew this that they were a little stunned. How could a peak Golden Core appear in that backward area? Of course, to them, it was not even worth mentioning, but in the Violet Thunder Prefecture, Chu Yunfan was considered a rare talent.
“Hahaha! So you’re a bumpkin from the Violet Thunder Prefecture.” The disciple who had mocked Chu Yunfan earlier was even more sarcastic now. “You must’ve stayed in that backward place for too long. You think our sect is on the same level as your hometown.”
Fang Yu glanced at Chu Yunfan and said, “Since Senior Yi recommended you, I will make an exception and give you a chance. Luo Buping will test you. Three moves. If you can last three moves, I will let you participate in the inner disciple test.”
“Three moves? Hahahaha! I’ll take him down in one!” Luo Buping laughed sinisterly.
A cold light flashed in through the man’s eyes. He had already made up his mind to make Chu Yunfan suffer. Although he could not kill Chu Yunfan because of Senior Yi, he could still cripple Chu Yunfan’s martial arts.
“You’re right, I only need one move,” Chu Yunfan also said indifferently, completely disregarding Luo Buping.
Luo Buping charged forward, sweeping out with his sword. He seemed to have transformed into an immortal from beyond the heavens.
“Transcendent Flying Celestial.”
With this move, the entire air collapsed on a large scale. The sky shook violently with the momentum of a landslide and tsunami.
“Luo Buping is being reckless. He’s using the Transcendent Flying Celestial to deal with a Golden Core.”
“That’s right. Even I’m not familiar with this move. If he doesn’t control himself, he’ll kill Chu Yunfan.”
“He is a talent recommended by Senior Yi.”
When the disciples saw this scene, they said that it was bad, but their faces were filled with ridicule. In their eyes, Chu Yunfan was as ridiculous as a monkey who didn’t know the immensity of heaven and earth.
Just as the sword was about to pierce his throat, Chu Yunfan shouted, “Sword, come to me!”
The surrounding spirit energy formed a sharp sword in his hand. Chu Yunfan jumped up and faced the incoming sword light.
“You want to fight me with a mere sword light? Let’s see how you die!” Luo Buping sneered when he saw Chu Yunfan rushing forward with a sharp sword condensed from spirit energy.
The sword lights collided in the air, forming a terrifying collision. The disciples, who had been mocking Chu Yunfan, were shocked upon watching the shocking scene. Chu Yunfan cut Luo Buping’s sword light with one strike, and then the sword light landed on Luo Buping’s body with an unstoppable force.
Luo Buping screamed and he was blasted away. A huge hole appeared in his chest and blood splattered everywhere.
