Translator: Atlas Studios Editor: Atlas Studios
As everyone looked at Situ Qiong who was dressed in white from head to toe, they felt that he was ridiculously handsome.
“Wow. It’s Situ Qiong.”
“We haven’t seen him dressed like this for so many years.”
“In the past, whenever he had a match, the venue would be filled to the brim with people. I never thought that we would be able to watch him compete today.”
“He hasn’t changed at all. He’s still as handsome as ever.”
With everyone’s cheers, the atmosphere instantly heated up even more.
But then, in similarly dressed fencing attire, Gu Jingze walked out.
He held a mask in one hand and an épée in the other.
With one person on the left and one person on the right, he and Situ Qiong stood facing each other.
Everyone present went into a frenzy.
“Good Lord, it’s Gu Jingze. It’s Gu Jingze in the flesh. He’s so handsome.”
“How can Gu Jingze be so handsome?”
“Good gracious. It’s the first time I’ve seen him dressed like this. He looks- looks exactly like a prince.”
The knickers wrapped tightly around his legs looked like knightly attire. Gu Jingze’s figure was already tall and upright. The knickers made him look even more slender and clearly accentuated his high waist.
Gu Jingze’s bodily proportions were simply great. His legs were particularly long.
Yu Minmin covered her ears to block out the explosive noise. She said to Lin Che, “Good Lord. These young’uns are too good at shouting.”
Lin Che could not be bothered with such exclamations. She merely looked at the two people down below in slight worry.
They were really going to have a match.
“Seriously… what exactly are they up to? They’re having a match just because they said they would. Really… they’re too immature.”
“Why? Haven’t you heard this saying?”
“If you have money, you can do whatever you want. It describes them perfectly.”
Gu Jingze put on the electric foil jacket and looked at Situ Qiong across him.
Situ Qiong returned the gaze.
“You’ve already attracted so many people here. You’re really not afraid of losing, are you?” Situ Qiong said.
Gu Jingze did not know why there were so many people here either. Nevertheless, he did not really care.
At this moment, he could see nothing but Situ Qiong and the only thing on his mind was the competition between them.
“If you’re afraid, I can have a private match with you,” he said.
Situ Qiong smiled. “Everyone says that I’m egotistical. I didn’t expect you to be even more arrogant than me.”
Gu Jingze said, “No, I’ve never been arrogant. I’ve always preferred to take action directly as opposed to merely using words.”
“Fine. Without further ado, let’s begin.”
The two of them finally stepped onto the piste that was smack in the middle of the gymnasium.
The people above seemed like they were about to rush towards the center. The girls were not at all reserved and continued shouting and cheering.
The scene was truly more frenzied than that at any concert Lin Che had ever seen.
Lin Che did not know why she involuntarily felt anxious as she looked at the two people standing there.
Did Gu Jingze know how to fence?
She never knew that he could fence.
However, a prodigal genius like Gu Jingze was good at so many things, some of which she was indeed not aware of.
But when Lin Che looked at the two of them right now, she really did not know what to do. She kept wondering how good of a fencer Gu Jingze was and whether he was a brilliant one.
Even though she did not know who was the better fencer, she knew that Situ Qiong was a professional. Thus, he had to be a formidable fencer.
In that case, would Gu Jingze lose?
She did not want Gu Jingze to lose. She did not at all want him to lose. Her heart would ache if anything remotely bad happened to Gu Jingze.
However, if Situ Qiong lost, would he lose all hope again?
Lin Che did not want that to happen either.
Caught in a dilemma, she clasped her hands together as she sat there. She wondered irritably to herself why they had to insist on having a match. Furthermore, when these men got stubborn, they didn’t listen to a single word of advice. It made her feel even more frustrated.
The noise on the piste jolted Lin Che out of her nonsensical thoughts.
Whether she wanted it or not, the match had already begun.
Gu Jingze’s épée darted forwards.
Although she was no professional, Lin Che recalled what Situ Qiong had once said: The best defense was an attack.
Gu Jingze was probably putting these words into action right now.
Lin Che had never seen Gu Jingze fence before. However, Lin Che could tell from his very first move that his movements were precise and his figure ramrod straight. He was definitely comparable to a professional. When Lin Che saw this, she immediately understood.
Gu Jingze knew how to fence.
There was no doubt that he was Gu Jingze. He was immensely good at everything.
His perfectionistic attitude molded him into such an attractive Gu Jingze.
Meanwhile, Situ Qiong did not lack in comparison at all.
Their movements were equally swift. Although laypersons could not tell who exactly was the better fencer, they would not forget this scene for the rest of their lives.
Naturally, everyone could easily watch a professional fencing match. However, it was certainly not easy to catch such an exciting match between Gu Jingze and Situ Qiong.
The spectators continued to cheer and shout as they looked at the two people on the piste. It was difficult to tell who would win because their scores were so close.
Instantly, Lin Che became even more troubled.
She looked at the score and felt that she would be very upset and very worried no matter who lost.
She was at a loss as to what to do.
However, the spectators had already split themselves into two sides of their own accord.
One side was shouting: Gu Jingze, you’re so handsome and all the best!
The other side was shouting: Young Master Qiong, you’re doing great! You must win!
Yu Minmin’s eyes were fixed on the match. She merely came to watch the fun and did not care who would win and who would lose. Right now, as she was watching the match, she could not help but say, “I didn’t know that Gu Jingze was so good at fencing.”
She raised her head to look at Lin Che. “But he’s too vicious. Look at him being so aggressive all the time. I think he’s definitely treating the sword in his hand as a chopper. He’s wishing that he could hack Situ Qiong to death one hit at a time.”
Lin Che glared fiercely at Yu Minmin.
Just then, on the piste, Gu Jingze launched another attack. Situ Qiong turned his body and avoided the hit. Then, he turned his arm and made a sudden thrust. Gu Jingze dodged swiftly and easily blocked his épée.
Gu Jingze made another speedy attack. Situ Qiong retreated and was nearly forced all the way to the back. Just when everyone thought that he was about to lose, he suddenly dodged and quickly attacked again. With this, he immediately turned the tables.
The people who had been shouting were so nervous that they did not even dare to let out a breath.
It was because the score was about to hit 45 points. The match would end when someone obtained 45 points.
The last few attacks were truly crucial.
Gu Jingze extended his épée yet again.
Situ Qiong dodged it at lightning speed.
The crowd drew in a breath.
People who knew the sport were discussing the match.
“This is certainly comparable to a professional match. I didn’t expect Gu Jingze to be so brilliant.”
They had initially come here with the intention to watch the excitement. However, they did not expect the match to be so exciting.
“These wealthy men probably learn everything. After all, they have the money to learn whatever they want to learn.”
“What do you know? It’s certainly not easy to learn it so well as he did. Gu Jingze either trained really hard or has a natural flair for it.”
At this moment, the score turned even again.
It was time for the last match.
The person who got the last point would be the winner.
