Chapter 208: Choosing a Trial Party Leader

It is said there are eighteen celestial fraternities big and small that are taking part in the Empyrean Warrior Labyrinth and there are always more than a hundred thousand golden celestials.

Even though it is difficult to meet a fellow associate cultivator inside but there will always be thousands if not hundreds in any same trial level due to the large numbers of golden celestials.

The Empyrean Warrior Labyrinth is a place where the golden celestials can take their trials and be rewarded handsomely. Therefore there is a powerful restriction in this place that only allows only the golden celestials to enter this place. With such a powerful restriction, the rewards for the trials naturally must be satisfying to the golden celestials in order to entice them inside.

It is said that every golden celestial must at least enter the Empyrean Warrior Labyrinth once in their lifetime in order to pass through their rite of passage to become a true celestial.

There are also many golden celestials that will always enter the Empyrean Warrior Labyrinth each time it has appeared, especially the autonomous celestials.

The trials of the Empyrean Warrior Labyrinth are never easy, especially the encounters with the other golden celestials. It is even harder when there are a huge disparity between the fifth realm cultivators and the seventh realm cultivators.

Therefore there is another restriction. The higher the cultivation realm of the cultivator, the slower their recovery rate is. The higher level that they are in, the more that they will be restricted.

Although a seventh realm golden celestial saint is much superior to the fifth realm and the six realm golden celestials but they had to be careful about using their profound strength recklessly because of the restriction to their profound strength recovery. This restriction is placed mainly to prevent them from constantly looking to fight with the other lower cultivation realm cultivators.

Most of the other celestial fraternities had another rule of their own and that is an unspoken rule; the cultivators from their same celestial fraternity should not fight against one another except for some exceptions.

The Desolate Celestial Fraternity prevents cultivators below the seventh realm from fighting against one another in the trials of the Empyrean Warrior Labyrinth. This is to prevent their fraternity cultivators from killing all their brightest talents as golden celestials are too precious to lose.

The only exceptional are those golden celestials that are on the hit list like the Evil Cultivation Palace.

But they are always stories of cultivators pretending to be golden celestials of a certain celestial clan or another celestial fraternity to sow discord. Therefore there is always a general mistrust among the golden celestials that are taking the trials.

So there is another hidden rule in the Empyrean Warrior Labyrinth; fifth realm cultivators should not be attacked unless they are courting their own deaths. Anyone that attacks a fifth realm cultivator may have a malicious intention and everyone should gang up against the offender.

Little Princess said. “The trials inside the Empyrean Warrior Labyrinth will last for 6 months. In theory we’ve got only 1 month for each level but if we want to go to the upper level swiftly, we should advance quickly for the lower levels so that we have much more time for the upper levels. It is because this will make sense since the upper levels will be much harder and we will spend a much longer time there. Does everyone agree?”

Ji Yuan nodded and said. “I do agree but we also need to appoint a trial leader. Therefore I suggest that I will lead our party…”

Shui Xisi interrupted with a soft chuckle. “Since I am a peaked great saintess, I should be the leader of our trial party…”

“No! I should be the trial leader. I’m also a peaked great saintess so I should take charge.” Bai Qianfeng insisted.

Little Princess immediately frowned. “It should be the one with the most trial experiences. Cultivation level does not have anything to do with this.”

“I agree! I have been to thirty-three trials and have extensive experiences in the trials.” Ling Feiyue chuckled. “I should be the trial leader.”

Shui Xisi and Little Princess were astonished. “Serious? You have been to so many trials?”

Ling Feiyue grinned. “That’s right. I have the most extensive experiences in the trials…”

Bai Qianfeng disagreed. “Sorry Sister Feiyue. Although I don’t have much experiences for trials but this is an immortal trial and I know more about immortal trials than anyone of you.”

Shui Xisi immediately frowned. “This is talking big!”

Ji Yuan was also interrupting. “Listen to me. I should be the trial leader. That is because I am your lord except for Sisi here and moreover I am really good in the trials…”

Shui Xisi protested immediately. “Then how many trials have you been?”

Ji Yuan frowned. “Five?”

Shui Xisi: …

Shui Xisi: …

Shui Xisi: …

“Are you joking? That is too little…”

Even Little Princess was saying. “Ji Yuan, you move to one side first. You’re too inexperienced…”

Bai Qianfeng agreed. “Yes it is too inexperienced. No wonder you are acting so noobish inside the Dream Trial…”

Ji Yuan: …

Ji Yuan: …

Ji Yuan: …

Ling Feiyue immediately came to the defense of Ji Yuan, “Actually our lord here had been to three of the lower trials a hundred times each. He is quite experienced…”

Little Princess, Bai Qianfeng and Shui Xisi were all laughing jovially. “It is just some low level trials and should not be counted as having experiences. I’ll suggest we remove the low level trials as counting as experiences….”

Ji Yuan: …

Ji Yuan: …

Ji Yuan: …

Ji Yuan immediately took out his divine sword. “Look! I should be the leader because I have an immortal-step divine sword…”

Shui Xisi interrupted him as she immediately took out her immortal-step divine sword. “I have one too plus my cultivation level is higher than you.”

Ji Yuan: …

Ji Yuan: …

Ji Yuan: …

Ling Feiyue said. “This can’t do. I suggest we vote for the leader instead. This is the fairest.”

Shui Xisi hummed, “You are all ganging on me because you are all sisters and are all close to Ji Yuan!”

“But this is only fair. If not we will be struck in this place.” Ling Feiyue pointed out.

Little Princess and Bai Qianfeng slowly nodded and they were forced to agree.

Eventually even Shui Xisi and Ji Yuan nodded their heads too.

Therefore they had decided on a secret vote to pick a leader.

And the result of the voting revealed that everyone got a vote.

Everyone: …

Ji Yuan was startled. “Are you all voting for yourself?!”

“Aren’t you as well?” The other maidens pointed out.

Ji Yuan: …

“Let’s have a revote again but this time, no voting to yourself.” Ji Yuan suggested.

Bai Qianfeng smiled. “I have a better idea. Why don’t we ask Xiang Li to vote for the leader instead since she likes all of us?” She was confident that Xiang Li would vote for her because they are the best of friends.

“That is a good idea.” Ling Feiyue and Little Princess agreed.

Shui Xisi was the only one that had protested but she was in the minority so her protest did not count.

Shui Xisi: …

Ji Yuan agreed as well so he called to his soul sea. “Xiang Li, please appear and vote for a trial party leader among us. We need you to choose a wise and brilliant leader.”

Xiang Li curiously appeared and asked. “Appoint a trial party leader?”

Ling Feiyue smiled. “That’s right. Can you help us?”

Little Princess put on her most mesmerizing wiles. “My dear Xiang Li, do you like me?”

Ji Yuan protested immediately. “We are choosing a capable leader and not a beauty contest. Choose me Xiang Li!”

Bai Qianfeng smiled to Xiang Li. “Do you agree that I will make the best leader?”

Xiang Li nodded immediately with a soft chuckle. “Yes, yes!”

Everyone: …

Bai Qianfeng laughed. “Then can I be the party leader?”

Xiang Li chuckled. “Can I vote myself to be the trial party leader? I’m really good with the trials…”

Everyone immediately cut her short. “No! You have to vote for one of us.”

Xiang Li: …

Xiang Li: …

Xiang Li: …

“Pick me Xiang Li…”

“I am the best leader…”

“Xiang Li, do you love me?”

“Aren’t we sisters, Xiang Li?”

Shui Xisi immediately stomped her foot. “This is too ridiculous! Why don’t we present why we are fit to be a capable leader in front of Xiang Li and let her pick one of us base on meritocracy instead? This is fairer this way.”

In the end, everyone was forced to agree with Shui Xisi; this was the fairest.

Therefore one by one they had all prepared their cases and started to present to Xiang Li.

Ling Feiyue delightfully said. “I have been to thirty-three trials and have extensive experiences…”

Little Princess laughed softly as she displayed her mesmerizing wink at Xiang Li. “All my trials are major trials and I’ve been to more than ten major trials…”

When Ji Yuan saw Little Princess’ expression, he thought. “I will choose her to be the leader if she can be like this all the time…” It was hard to resist the mesmerizing charms from Little Princess when she had chosen to display her feminine wiles.

Shui Xisi put on her most impressive wiles as she giggled. “Remember that I am the Matriarch Palace Mistress of the Water Melody Palace…”

Bai Qianfeng smiled gently at Xiang Li. “Aren’t we best friends? You can trust me to lead all of us out of the most perilous situations…”

When it was time for Ji Yuan to present his case, he said with great confident. “I am the Great Hero Ji Yuan and everyone looks up to me…”

When everyone had presented their cases to Xiang Li, they asked him. “So Xiang Li, so who will the trial party leader?”

Xiang Li laughed. “Naturally it is my Big Brother! He is the best and the most awesome!”

All the other maidens: …

Ji Yuan laughed jovially. “Naturally I am!”

“From now onward, I will be your party leader and the dominant alpha of the party. All of you must listen to my instructions. Haha.”

He had said to Xiang Li in his soul sea. “Xiang Li, if you can vote for me then I can promise you that we will have the most awesome banging experiences in the trial. You won’t regret it if you vote for me!”

Xiang Li asked innocently. “And what if I do not vote for Big Brother?”

“Then you won’t get any awesome experience because I will be a monk in the trial.”
