Chapter 22: It’s The Same No Matter Who Comes
Translator: Dragon Boat Translation Editor: Dragon Boat Translation
Even Chen Wu and the others couldn’t help but sweat for Lin Bai.
“In the world of martial arts, speed is the only thing that can not be countered. His speed has already reached the limit. Lin Bai doesn’t seem to have much of a chance of winning.”
“Although Lin Bai is powerful, he had already expended a lot of energy fighting the two of them just now. He might not be able to deal with him.”
The crowd began to belittle Lin Bai, causing the members of the Wind and Cloud Dojo to be in an uproar. On the other hand, Chen Wu was calm and composed, as if she was certain that Lin Bai would win.
“Senior sister, why aren’t you worried?”
Chen Wu silently looked at the arena, her watery eyes brimming with trust. “I believe in him.”
The instant her voice fell, the outcome of the battle between the two had already been decided.
Golden feathers danced in the air, scattering down like snowflakes. Accompanied by tiny bolts of lightning, they appeared even more beautiful and colorful.
It was just a little tiring.
The originally awe-inspiring Nine Evolutions Thunder Condor had now turned into a bald bird. However, its body was huge, and from a distance, it looked like a big meatball.
If it weren’t for the people from the Thousand Beast Chamber of Commerce, everyone would have laughed out loud by now. Even so, everyone’s shoulders were still trembling. One could imagine how hard it was to hold in their laughter.
The expressions of the people from the Thousand Beast Chamber of Commerce were not good, especially Wan Heliang. His face was so gloomy that water could almost drip out of it.
“Useless trash.” He gritted his teeth and squeezed out a sentence.
The other members of the Thousand Beast Chamber of Commerce lowered their heads in shame. They were proud of being the best among their peers, but now, they had all fallen into the hands of an unknown person.
The most important thing was that that person was only at the Houtian level four. If word got out, the Thousand Beast Chamber of Commerce would lose all its face.
Lin Bai calmly said, “Next.”
This sentence was like a demonic tune. When the members of the Thousand Beast Chamber of Commerce heard it, they actually showed some fear, so much so that they looked at each other. No one actually dared to go on stage.
After all, a few of the best fighters had already been beaten down by Lin Bai.
“You bunch of useless people. At such a critical moment, you actually can’t use any of them. What’s the point of feeding you?”
Wan Heliang was flustered. His expression was sinister as he looked at Lin Bai on the stage. “If that’s the case, then I’ll go up personally!”
“Young master, you can’t do that!”
When the Thousand Beast Chamber of Commerce and the others heard this, they were a little anxious. “This kid is a little strange. I don’t know what his background is. Previously, Sun Zeming, Li Zhanghong, and the others were all defeated –”
Before he could finish his words, Wan Heliang’s expression was dark, and his gaze was frighteningly cold. “You mean that I’m inferior to him?”
Seeing that he was so insistent, the crowd couldn’t persuade him any further. Moreover, although Wan Heliang’s personality wasn’t good, his strength was unquestionable. He was even above the three of them, so it shouldn’t be too much of a problem.
Seeing Wan Heliang personally step onto the stage, many people revealed different expressions.
“Now there’s a good show to watch. Even the young master of the Thousand Beast Chamber of Commerce has personally stepped in. Who do you think will win this time?”
“It’s hard to say. Although Wan Heliang rarely makes a move, his strength is not to be underestimated among the younger generation. As for Lin Bai, his three consecutive victories are enough to show his strength.”
“If you ask me, this Wan Heliang will definitely lose. Since the three great experts have already lost, it doesn’t matter if he goes up too.”
That person opened his mouth and wanted to say something, but his companion beside him gave him a crazy look. Only then did he notice that the faces of the people in the Thousand Beast Chamber of Commerce was getting darker and darker.
His companion lowered his voice and reminded him:
“You don’t know your limits when you speak. So what if that Lin Bai is powerful? He has no one behind him, so how could he possibly fight against the Thousand Beast Chamber of Commerce, which has a strong background?”
The whispers of these people also reached the ears of Lin Bai and Wan Heliang.
Wan He Liang’s ugly expression eased a little. Even so, the viciousness in his gaze could not be hidden. If he had only wanted to teach Lin Bai a lesson before, now he was filled with killing intent.
“You do have some ability and luck, but you will stop here because you’ve met me.”
Lin Bai was a little impatient. “Why does your Thousand Beast Chamber of Commerce always say such nonsense before the battle starts? You’ve already seen the fate of the first three people. You won’t be the last.”
Arrogant! Too arrogant!
Not to mention the people from the Thousand Beast Chamber of Commerce, even the people from the other factions could not help but cast sidelong glances when they heard these words.
“It’s a good thing to have strength, but to be overly arrogant and overconfident is to overestimate oneself.”
“Does this kid really think that we are just putting on a show? He actually dares to say such words.”
“Can he beat everyone in the arena to the ground all by himself!”
The people below the stage discussed animatedly, but the battle on the stage had already reached a stalemate.
Following Lin Bai’s loud shout, “Octane Blast!”
The violent airflow swept across the entire stage, causing everyone to step back one after another. They were afraid of being affected by this force, and several cracks had already appeared on the floor tiles on the stage.
They were all traces left behind by battle techniques and spiritual energy.
Wan Heliang immediately took out a transparent defensive barrier. The surface of the barrier rippled with a transparent water light, and it looked very extraordinary.
However, in the next second, his face turned deathly pale. The defensive barrier actually shattered completely. Under the impact of the spiritual energy, it was actually like a thin layer of paper. He suddenly spat out a large mouthful of blood.
Seeing the scene in front of them, the members of the Thousand Beast Chamber of Commerce were so furious that their eyes almost popped out of their sockets. One after another, they stood up from their seats, and Wan Chaozong, the Grand Elder of the Wan family, was even more furious.
“Who exactly is this kid? Does anyone here know him?”
However, after a round of questioning, everyone shook their heads, indicating that they didn’t know.
“He should be a high-level member that the Wind and Cloud Dojo randomly pulled over from the martial arts association. I don’t know the exact details.”
Wan Chaozong took a deep breath and cupped his hands towards the people from the Broken Sword Escort Agency and the Green Lotus Medicine Shop:
“This kid is really detestable. If I don’t teach him a lesson, I’ll really be unable to resolve the hatred in my heart. I hope that everyone can lend a hand.”
The people from the Broken Sword Escort Agency had always had a good relationship with the Thousand Beast Chamber of Commerce. They didn’t want to offend them, so they naturally agreed.
“Since brother Wan has said it, we naturally have to do it.”
As for elder Xie from the Green Lotus medicine shop, although he had a kind face, he was used to being the one who took matters into his own hands. When he saw that the Broken Sword Escort Agency was also on the Thousand Beast Chamber of Commerce’s side, he immediately said without hesitation.
“Don’t worry, Brother Wan, we will definitely do our best to help you vent your anger!”
After saying that, he took out his own signature product. It was a medium-level mystic grade small fortune pill.
This pill could double a person’s cultivation in a short period of time!
The elite disciples of several factions took the pill together and walked towards the arena.
