Qiao Qianzhi clapped Ye Xiaotian on the shoulder and said, “Yuan Tou is done for.”
It was difficult to foster an Inner Yard disciple, and, furthermore, that man was one of the new 33 and had a bright future ahead of him.
Despite having a somewhat stained record, given that no one was perfect, his flaws were forgivable.
In this world, no one paid particular attention to someone’s flaws. What people did pay attention to was how powerful a person was.
“It’s a pity…”
Ye Xiaotian simply sighed. The path to reach the Great Path was fraught with incidents, and it wasn’t uncommon to see someone gone due to one of such incidents.
He turned around and added, “We’ll try one last time when we open the gate of the place normally a day later.”
“Sure.” Qiao Qianzhi agreed to it without any hesitation. He then turned around to look at Zhao Xidong. “Time to get to work.”
“We’ve been waiting just to do that.”
Zhao Xidong all of a sudden had a piece of grass dangling from his mouth that no one recalled him putting there, and there was a cynical look in his eyes. He then disappeared from where he stood with the wheel in his hands.

Xu Xiaoshou glanced at the others, finding that everyone other than Luo Leilei and Mo Mo still seemed somewhat puzzled…
“These guys really are slow at picking up on things…” he thought.
Zhao Xidong then continued, “This type of incident didn’t happen in years past, and even if someone was lucky enough to chance upon such treasures, it would still be difficult for them to break the seals.
“However, those treasures shall be the prizes of any who succeed in doing so.”
