When a person faced the corpse of his previous life, how complicated would it be?
Xiang Nan looked at Bai Muchen face to face. That was the face he had seen countless times in the mirror.
This feeling was too familiar. It was as if Xiang Nan was looking at himself in the mirror. However, this feeling was too unfamiliar. In the mirror, he was still himself. However, standing outside the mirror, he was already Xiang Nan.
Xiang Nan was furious in his heart. He had never known that the corpse of his previous life had always existed, and that it had been desecrated by the Profound Sky Sect.
At this moment, Bai Muchen was only an empty shell, and even his martial arts talent had been sucked away by Xuan Qingzhu.
Xiang Nan was in a trance.
The disturbance in the scenes surrounding the sect ranking competition had gradually subsided. Although the major sects were protesting, they could not give a reasonable reason. In the end, they could only accept fate's arrangement and choose to continue participating in the sect ranking competition.
As a result, the situation became much more subtle.
The reason for that was because the Heavenly Profound Sect and Feiyun always held a challenge competition. In other words, the two sects would not fight each other.
Xuan Qingzhu also announced on the spot that the rules of the sect ranking tournament had been adjusted accordingly.
The original rule was that the sect ranking tournament was divided into three stages. The first stage was called the arena audition tournament.
Every challenger had to defeat a disciple of the Heavenly Profound Sect and a disciple of the Flying Cloud Sect in the arena competition. Only by winning a total of two times would they be able to win the arena audition and enter the next stage.
But now, the number of Sky Profound Flying Cloud Sect disciples was nearly three times that of the challengers, so the number of challengers who wanted to win would have to increase!
Right now, a group of challengers like the Haoran Sect had to win six battles before they could advance to the next stage.
This rule was incomparably exaggerated! To the challenger, the disadvantage was unimaginable.
However, no one was able to resist, because at the beginning, six sects challenged two sects. This was a great disadvantage for the two sects. Now that the situation had changed, the challenger had no reason to demand so-called fairness.
The arena for the first stage of the audition was set up in Star Watching City and was divided into groups by random allocation.
Each challenger stepped onto the arena and randomly selected six number plates to be his enemies.
At this moment, the drums and gongs of the audition arena competition had already sounded.
The challenger was composed of six major sects. Their 213 disciples first drew lots to decide who would be the first to step onto the stage.
The result came out very quickly. It was a female disciple from the Divine Feathers Sect.
The moment this female disciple stepped onto the arena, the crowd immediately cheered. Under the gazes of the crowd, this female disciple took out six number plates from the chest in succession, representing the serial numbers of the six challenged disciples.
The competition began in the eyes of everyone.
A disciple of the Heavenly Profound Sect stepped onto the arena and nodded to the female disciple of the Divine Feathers Sect. After that, another bronze gong sounded and the competition officially began.
The female disciple of the Divine Feathers Sect was at the 1st level of the Heavenly Yuan Realm, and her age was about one or two years older than Caixia.
The male disciple of the Heavenly Profound Sect was also at the 1st level of the Heavenly Yuan Sect, but before that, he belonged to the Primordial Chaos Sect! He was part of the defection.
The female disciple of the Divine Feathers Sect seemed to be extremely angry. She first insulted the disciples of the Black Sect and then rushed forward.
The two of them quickly clashed, and the Heavenly Profound Sect disciples had the advantage.
After the Black Sect disciples found an opportunity, they used the sharp sword in their hands to cut open the arm of the female disciple of the Divine Feathers Sect.
"She's already poisoned." The madman elder stood beside Xiang Nan and explained, "The duration of this poison is slow and persistent."
"This female disciple's willpower will constantly weaken. Weakening her willpower means that her combat strength will greatly decrease."
"When she truly starts to be completely controlled by the will toxin, she will fail completely and announce her submission to the Profound Sky Sect on the spot."
"Such a situation will not arouse the suspicions of the audience. Everyone only thinks that she has surrendered to the power of the Profound Sky Sect, not been controlled."
Sure enough, Xiang Nan looked at the battle scene exactly as the madman elder had said.
After the female disciple of the Divine Feather Sect was injured, her combat strength began to decline continuously. Her speed, strength, and the speed at which she released her Essence did not show any signs of weakening. However, her reaction, judgment, and fighting enthusiasm decreased in all directions.
If a person's speed of reaction and ability to judge enemy moves decreased during a battle, then defeat would be a foregone conclusion.
That day, the male disciple of the Black Sect kicked the female disciple of the Divine Feathers Sect away.
The female disciple lay on the ground, panting for breath for a long time before she stood up. Her expression was lonely and she sighed deeply. "The Profound Sky Sect is unstoppable. I have already sensed my own insignificance."
"I, Miao Hongcui, hereby announce that I will officially leave the Divine Feathers Sect today. I am willing to join the Profound Sky Sect to pursue higher-end martial cultivation."
Once these words were spoken, the entire audience erupted into an uproar!
The direction of the Divine Feathers Sect was rare. There was no reaction at all. They were no longer willing to say anything to this kind of disciple who had defected from the sect.
As for Xuan Qingzhu, who represented the elders of the Sky Profound Sect, he smiled and said, "I accept your request. Since you are already a member of our Sky Profound Sect, then this battle will be considered null and void. Next, you will represent our Sky Profound Sect and continue to fight."
As a result, the challenged had another participating disciple, and the challenger had a corresponding one less.
Following that, the battle continued. The challenger drew lots again and a male disciple from the Starsea Sect stepped onto the arena …
"You saw it." The madman elder said to Xiang Nan, "Isn't my masterpiece amazing?"
Xiang Nan's eyebrows furrowed tightly. This couldn't go on! Challenger Fang simply couldn't last until the end, there was no one left to fight!
When the auditions were over, all the participating disciples would become members of the Profound Sky Sect. At that time, the second stage of the sect ranking competition would not even need to begin.
The madman elder said to Xiang Nan, "These poisoned disciples will be surrounded by a very, very faint layer of will toxin. This will toxin can't be detected. It is lifeless, odorless, and colorless, but it will affect people nearby."
'"If you stay with them for too long, your will will also be eroded, so if you want to perform well, start body refining."
"Xuan Qingzhu intentionally made you one of the signboards of the Profound Sky Sect. This is the best time for you to display yourself."
Xiang Nan did not hesitate any longer. He knew that he had to make a decision quickly. He nodded and said, "Alright, I accept body refinement."
After saying that, he had already drilled into the tree hole uncontrollably.
At this time, a large number of meridian-shaped fibrous roots wrapped around Xiang Nan's body. Those fibrous roots were like blood vessels that connected to his skin.
Then, an incomparably familiar foreign will suddenly rushed into Xiang Nan's mind.
