6. Entrance examination (Part 1)




After getting on the ship and ‘washing’ her clothes clean, she looked around the ship. She was very worried that people would notice her wearing clothes different than them and think her as a weirdo. But after seeing the ship full with people of different kinds and wearing various clothes, her heart calmed down. She noticed that she wasn’t the only one who looked foreigner in this cultivation settings? Half of the people were wearing traditional clothing where the other half….. what the hell is that?

There were people who were wearing a rag or mop on their body. Some even decorated their body with full of feathers, and some had bones hanging on their necks and hands, as if they were boarded straight from Amazon jungle. But the one that caught her eyes most was a pair of men wearing bedsheets, they only had holes on both of their sides to show their hands but their head was completely buried under the bedsheets. At least cut a hole to show your head brothers. Did she actually came to a costume party?

Compared to these people, Shi Xia suddenly felt her own clothes were more suitable for this era of the country, or wherever she is.

“Hey, girl! Why are you always spacing out? Come and sit down!” A few steps away where she stood, two men wearing chicken feathers all over their body beckoned to her in a friendly way, “the ship has sailed, sit down or you will be knocked down by the wind.”

Only then did Shi Xia realize that the ship had already started and sailed over the sea a while ago. She hesitated a little before going over to the men wearing “chicken feathers”. When she went close to them, one of them immediately moved away and gave her the seat.

“Thank you.”

“You’re welcome. When you are in a different place, everything becomes unrecognisable.” One of the Chicken Hairs smiled nervously, “My surname is Lu, given name Ren, and this is my brother Lu Ser.” He pointed to another chicken-haired man next to him and said, “We are both from Qi, I wonder what your name is, Miss?”

The corners of Shi Xia’s mouth twitched, Lu Ren* and Lu Ser*, your names are so tasteful ah.


[T/N: Lu Ren means stupid person and Lu Ser is literally, loser.]

“My surname is Shi…” saying this, Shi Xia suddenly remembered the warning of that white clothed cultivator and changed the sentence, “I am …… from Liang.” She told the city name heard from Xuan Lin.

“You a girl, coming here from such a faraway place must not be easy.”

Shi Xia remembered the heartbreaking history of her tearfull adventure as her face turned green. She stiffly smiled and said, “it was …… okay.” At least she is still alive.

“At least you reached here, we brothers search for this place for whole five years.” Chicken hair had a look of understanding and sympathy on his face, “only then we found the pier taking disciples to immortal sect.”

Shi Xia froze, remembered that she still didn’t know where this ship was taking them. Taking the chance she asked, “Brother Lu Ren, do you know where this ship is going?”

Lu Ren looked at her with a puzzled look, “Of course it is going to the Yuhua Sect. You aren’t going to Yuhua Sect to cultivate immortality?”

“Cultivate immortality?” Shi Xia suddenly became excited, she pulled the chicken feather’s hand and asked, “There are immortals in the Yuhua Sect?!” Then wouldn’t there be hope for her to go home?

“How come you don’t know anything about it?” Lu Ren had a face of ‘how on earth did you come here’ look. The brothers sighed thinking that she may have brought up carefully and didn’t know much about cultivation, so they started to explain like older brothers.

After some rough explanation from chicken hair brothers, Shi Xia finally understood that she was actually thrown into a kind of world where status depends on strength. In simple terms, this is not a divine fantasy world, but an immortal world. The people she saw flying in the sky with swords before were not real immortals, but immortal cultivators.

That’s right. People here, who are considered mortals can also become immortal through cultivation, but the immortal cultivation world is hidden from the world’s path, and only those who have the destiny can step into it. And now, she is going to the Yuhua Sect, equivalent to an immortal cultivation vocational and technical college, specializing in teaching people how to cultivate to become an immortal.

But it is not easy to cultivate immortality, it is difficult for mortals to discover the existence of the immortal world, and even if they do, whether they can find a good immortal sect is also a problem. Even if they find a good sect and good teachers, it depends on qualifications, enlightenment, etc.. These are all determining factors.

“That means there are no real immortals in this world?” Shi Xia was a little discouraged.

“Immortals? Yeah, there are naturally immortals in the immortal world, how could they easily come down to mortal realm?” One of the chicken hair brothers said with a righteous face, “but the ability of immortal cultivators should not be underestimated, especially those with profound cultivation of the venerable. I heard that some great immortals cultivatate for more than a thousand years. They become so powerful that even moving mountains and turning over the sea is not a problem. For us mortals, this is considered to be a god, right?”

“Powerful?” Shi Xia’s eyes lit up, could their great power can help her send her home?

“That’s right.” He suddenly said with an excited face, “I heard people say that there are two great ancestors in the Yuhua Sect, with unfathomable cultivation. When the Devil cultivator was rampaging on the mortal realm a hundred years ago, it was one of the great ancestors who repelled the Devil several times. Only to keep the peace of the immortal cultivation world for these hundred years.”

Ancestor? In Shi Xia’s mind came the face of Yuanwu’s fierce and somewhat inexplicable great ancestor in white clothes that saved her from Black Fury. It can’t be a coincidence that he was one of the ancestors, right?
