Chapter 373: Fire Spreads Around Li Xian Sect
Four hours later, Chu Yun suddenly slipped in a daze in her seat, not moving at all. She was focused on the “chess” in her hand.
Chen Chen and Li Xiang were getting impatient. Just as Li Xiang was about to urge her, Chen Chen suddenly realized that something was wrong.
“Wait, something seems to have happened to her.”
“What’s wrong?” Li Xiang asked in surprise.
“She seems to have had an epiphany.”
Chen Chen muttered to himself. He was speechless after he said that.
To be able to have an epiphany after playing cards, wasn’t this a little too exaggerated? Could it be that this woman really connected it to the Heavenly Dao?
Li Xiang’s eyes were full of envy when she heard this. However, she could not be envious of things like epiphany.
She could not do anything to interrupt Chu Yun’s epiphany in front of Chen Chen.
Therefore, she could only carefully observe the “chess” in her hand, wanting to see what was so mysterious about it.
Just like that, Chu Yun sat quietly for half a day and night until she woke up in the morning of the next day.
Chen Chen and Li Xiang followed behind her and sat quietly for half a day and night. They witnessed Chu Yun step into the peak of the Void Refinement realm from the late stage of the Void Refinement realm.
Chen Chen was still fine. After all, he had also had an epiphany.
However, Li Xiang’s feelings were a little complicated. After all, the only thing that she was stronger than Chu Yun in was combat strength.
Now that Chu Yun had stepped into the peak of the Void Refinement realm, even her combat strength had probably surpassed hers. In this way, wouldn’t she be stronger than her in all aspects?
Moreover, she was the disciple and adopted daughter of the sect leader. This made her somewhat inexplicable in her heart.
“Congratulations for stepping into the peak of the Void Refinement realm, Fellow Daoist.”
A voice sounded by her ear. It was Chen Chen congratulating Chu Yun.
Hearing this, she realized that she had lost her composure and hurriedly said, “Junior Sister, Congratulations on your breakthrough in cultivation.”
“It’s all thanks to Fellow Daoist’s chess set!”
Chu Yun said excitedly. Feeling her cultivation level, she looked at Chen Chen with eyes full of gratitude.
Chen Chen laughed dryly. If the gamblers in his previous life knew about this, they would probably find another reason to play cards.
‘Why can’t I have a breakthrough when playing cards while others can?’
Chen Chen thought to himself. As he thought about it, he suddenly felt bored, so he tactfully gave the order for them to leave.
“Fellow Daoist, since you’ve already succeeded in breaking through, then quickly go back and consolidate your cultivation. Moreover, the two of you have stayed at my place for a night. If others know about this, it will inevitably cause misunderstandings.”
Hearing this, Chu Yun stood up, bade farewell, and turned around to leave.
Li Xiang’s heart was filled with unwillingness. She still wanted to play this chess game a little longer to see if she had the chance to have an epiphany. However, after seeing Chen Chen’s tired eyes, she had no choice but to give up this thought. She also stood up and left.
On the other side.
After Chu Yun returned, she immediately went to see her master, Perfected Yun Yue, and told her the news of her breakthrough.
When Perfected Yun Yue learned that her disciple had broken through, she was naturally in an extremely good mood and immediately rewarded Chu Yun with a lot of things.
One had to know that she might not be able to catch up to Li Xian in this lifetime, but her disciple was able to surpass Li Xian’s disciple. This was also a form of comfort to her.
After a long time.
Perfected Yun Yue asked in a deep voice, “How’s that matter going?”
Chu Yun’s expression stiffened when she heard this. The matter that her master had mentioned was naturally the matter of sending people to seduce Chen Chen and make a cuckold of the sect leader.
Before yesterday, she had only suspected that Chen Chen might know that her master and the sect leader were on bad terms. However, after experiencing a certain method of playing chess yesterday, she was certain of this matter.
Chen Chen definitely knew about the tricks in the sect. He had even advised her through the method of playing chess!
That method was called “fighting the sect leader”. When the three of them played chess, one of them would become the sect leader while the other two would think of a way to win against the sect leader.
This was simply a blatant hint! She was shocked at that time!
“Why? Did something go wrong?” Perfected Yun Yue frowned slightly and asked when she saw that her disciple’s expression was a little strange.
Chu Yun hurriedly lowered her head and softly said, “Master, Chen Chen is extremely guarded. Moreover, it is very likely that he has seen through our intentions. Therefore, I think….”
“You think that this method that I have thought of won’t work?” Perfected Yun Yue’s tone turned cold.
Chu Yun braced herself and told Perfected Yun Yue everything that had happened over the past few days.
Perfected Yun Yue’s face twitched a little after hearing the name “fighting the sect leader”.
Although beauty was tempting, if Chen Chen knew that there was a trap behind the word ‘lust’, it was basically impossible for him to fall for it as long as he was not a fool who only knew how to use his lower body to think.
Looking at it this way, it really wouldn’t work.
“Master, I also know that the reason that Chen Chen came to our Li Xian Sect was because he was coerced by the sect leader. He himself isn’t the kind of vile person who sells his looks to get close to women.”
Chu Yun said in a low voice.
Daoist Master Yun Yue was flustered when she heard this. She waved her hand and said, “Forget it if it doesn’t work. Let’s put this matter aside for now. Tell me about that chess game first. What exactly is going on? It actually gave you an epiphany.”
When it came to “chess”, Chu Yun’s interest was immediately piqued. She took out a set of “chess” made of Spirit Stones from her storage ring.
She had copied Chen Chen’s set of chess. Whether it was the size or the symbols carved on it, they were all exactly the same, except that the material was much better.
“Master, this is how the game is played.”
The next day.
There was a rumor in the Li Xian Sect. It was said that the second Senior Sister of the sect, Chu Yun, suddenly had an epiphany and her cultivation level reached the peak of the Void Refinement realm in one go. She surpassed the eldest Senior Sister, Li Xiang.
And the reason that the second Senior Sister was able to have an epiphany was said to be because she played a strange chess game.
This chess game contained the Heavenly Dao. Playing this kind of chess game could increase one’s understanding of the Heavenly Dao.
This rumor became more and more bizarre. When it reached the end, some people even said that playing this chess game could directly increase one’s cultivation level.
But no one knew exactly what this chess game looked like and what the rules were.
It was not until a few days later that the complete appearance of the chess game was spread out.
After a few days of brewing, all the cultivators in the Li Xian Sect were already very curious about the ‘Heavenly Dao chess game’. Therefore, as soon as it was spread out, it caused a wave of excitement in playing chess.
From some high-level cultivators in the Spirit Severing stage to some cultivators who had just stepped into the path of cultivation and had yet to reach the Core Formation realm, all of them were thinking about the ‘Heavenly Dao chess game’.
In order to truly experience the great joys and sorrows of life, every time the cultivators played a game of chess, they had to take out a large number of stakes.
As for Chen Chen, he went into closed-door cultivation in silence for a month. During this month, not only did he consolidate his cultivation level that was at the peak of the Void Refinement realm, but he also raised his body refinement cultivation to the peak of the Essence Soul realm. At the same time, he also practiced his secret techniques more skillfully.
After he came out of seclusion, he subconsciously used his divine senses to check out the scene in the sect.
In the end, he saw a scene that shocked him greatly.
Almost half of the disciples in the sect were playing cards. Some of the cards they used were made of bamboo, some were made of Spirit Stones, and some were made of wood.
Although the materials were different, the expressions of the users were similar. All of them were so excited that their faces were flushed. Some of them were the higher-ups of the sect.
“What’s going on?”
Chen Chen was confused. ‘Could this have something to do with me?’
Thinking of this, he couldn’t help but shiver.
At this rate, when Li Xian came out of seclusion, a group of gambling saints would appear in the sect.
‘Would she kill me, the instigator?’
Before he could continue thinking, the door of the cultivation room was opened, and Li Xiang rushed in.
Compared to a month ago, her temperament had changed drastically. There was an additional ruffian aura around her.
“Chen Chen, I knew you had come out of seclusion. Let me ask you, do you have any other ways to play chess?”
