Chapter 4035: Wanqi Hong’s Turn
Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
As soon as Lin Dong Lai’s voice fell, Wang Zhu Bai from the Profound Jade Mansion’s Fortune Sect made a move. His Divine Energy burst forth as he charged toward Yuan Mo Yu from the Green Province Mansion’s Howling Heaven Sect. He cast the profundities from the law he comprehended and attacked with all his might with his prominent divine artifact.
The crowd was surprised to see Wang Zhu Bai going all out as soon as the fight began. However, it did not take long for them to understand Wang Zhu Bai’s decision.
There was no doubt that Wang Zhu Bai was no match for Yuan Mo Yu. As such, it was best for him to attack with all his might as soon as the fight started. If he could catch Yuan Mo Yu off guard with his first attack, he might have a chance of injuring Yuan Mo Yu, increasing his chances of ending the fight in a tie.
However, there were people, including Duan Ling Tian, who thought it was a futile move even if it was the best move. It was unlikely that someone like Yuan Mo Yu would be caught off guard by the attack.
Similarly, the high-ranking officials from the various forces did not think Wang Zhu Bai’s attempt would be successful even if they understood that this was his best choice given the circumstances. With this move, at the very least, he had a sliver of hope of ending the fight in a tie.
“Although this is the best move, it comes with risks as well. If Wang Zhu Bai fails, he’ll be in an even more disadvantageous position. He might not even be able to hold on as long as he originally could if he fails…”
Everyone watched closely as Wang Zhu Bai’s terrifying attack swept toward Yuan Mo Yu.
In just a moment, a streak of energy swept out, easily destroying Wang Zhu Bai’s fierce attack.
Yuan Mo Yuan was unscathed, looking majestic and overbearing. Before Wang Zhu Bai could mobilize his Divine Energy again, he made a move.
A loud explosion rang in the air as a mushroom cloud appeared under Yuan Mo Yu. He flew toward Wang Zhu Bai with a fan in hand. This was the first time he had used his prominent divine artifact during the Seven Mansions Feast.
“Yuan Mo Yu is using his prominent divine artifact!”
“Wang Zhu Bai is amazing even if he loses this battle. He managed to force Yuan Mo Yu into using his prominent divine artifact!”
Yuan Mo Yu was not very famous in the past. His only claim to fame was that his great-grandfather was an advanced Emperor of Gods. Nobody knew about his strength until recently when he displayed his ability in the Howling Heaven Sect. From then on, he was known as the strongest young disciple in the Howling Heaven Sect.
Swoosh! Swoosh! Swoosh!
A violent gust of wind swept toward Wang Zhu Bai when Yuan Mo Yu waved his fan. He hastily retreated, but unfortunately, Yuan Mo Yu’s attack breached his defenses thunderously and struck him. The injury he suffered from this attack was minor, but his expression changed when he saw Yuan Mo Yu waving his fan again. This time, the wind sweeping toward him was even stronger than before. He quickly cast his bloodline power before a blood-red barrier appeared around him.
Boom! Boom! Boom!
The wind struck the barrier violently, and it did not take long for the barrier to shatter. With that, Wang Zhu Bai was struck again. This time, he spat out mouthful after mouthful of blood, severely injured.
‘Wang Zhu Bai’s barrier from his bloodline power is much stronger than the ones conjured by prominent divine artifacts,’ Duan Ling Tian thought to himself, surprised by Wang Zhu Bai’s bloodline power.
‘Yuan Mo Yu’s going to attack again…’ Duan Ling Tian could sense that Yuan Mo Yu had only used roughly 50% of his strength so far. Moreover, Yuan Mo Yu’s Divine Energy was regenerating very quickly as well. Previously, he had heard from Zhen Ping Fan that Yuan Mo Yu’s great-grandfather, an advanced Emperor of Gods, had created a technique that was stronger than any rudimentary forms of the Four Daos of Heaven and Earth.
“It’s the Triple Storm Technique!”
“Yuan Mo Yu is using the Triple Storm Technique!”
“His great-grandfather had taught him this technique because he’s the most outstanding out of all his descendants.”
“There’s another wave left! If Wang Zhu Bai doesn’t surrender, he’s going to be severely injured to the point where he won’t be able to continue fighting later…”
Before Yuan Mo Yu launched the final wave of attack of the Triple Storm Technique, Wang Zhu Bai called out weakly, “I… I surrender…”
Following that, Wang Zhu Bai hurriedly took a few divine pills to heal his injuries. Following that, colors returned to his ashen face.
Needless to say, one was prohibited from consuming divine pills during a fight.
“The Triple Storm Technique is indeed as powerful as rumored,” Wang Zhu Bai said after he recovered slightly. He cupped his fists together at Yuan Mo Yu and exchanged tokens before he flew away. Although he was defeated, he was not discouraged. On the contrary, he grew even more motivated. He did not think it was embarrassing to be defeated, but it would have been embarrassing if he had surrendered without a fight.
“Wang Zhu Bai will be outstanding in the future if he doesn’t die prematurely,” Ye Chen Feng said. This was a rare compliment coming from him. Apart from Duan Ling Tian and the other six strongest participants, he had not praised any of the other participants.
Liu Feng Gu nodded. “He accepted his defeat very well. Moreover, he seems even more motivated and determined than before. He has the potential…”
“We’ll have to see if the Fortune Sect has a discerning eye and nurture him,” Zhen Ping Fan added.
The young disciples from the Pure Yang Sect were quite surprised and skeptical that three elders from the Pure Yang Sect praised Wang Zhu Bai. Only those who were outstanding like Duan Ling Tian, Ye Ying Cai, Yun Ye Wei, Yang Qian Ye, and a few others understood the three elders.
Soon after, everyone’s attention shifted to Wanqi Hong who held the 29th token.
“It’s Wanqi Hong’s turn!”
“He was defeated by Duan Ling Tian previously.”
“He was really foolish. He wasted so much time fighting for the first token. If he knew he was going to end up with the 20th token, I’m sure he would’ve withdrawn from the fight sooner.”
“Alas, he couldn’t predict the future.”
At the same time, Lin Dong Lai said, “Will the 29th participant please step into the battlefield?” When Wanqi Hong flew over, he continued to say, “You can challenge anyone from the 21st to the 28th place. However, since the 21st participant has just finished his fight, he has the right to refuse your challenge.”
Wanqi Hong nodded. “I understand, Elder Lin. There’s no need for you to remind me as I’m familiar with the basic rules of the Seven Mansions Feast. I’d like to challenge the 22nd participant.”
The 22nd participant was from the Divine Morning Mansion. Unsurprisingly, he was quickly defeated and severely injured by Wanqi Hong with just two moves.
Wanqi Hong did not hold back when he attacked. He was furious that he failed to obtain the first token and was mocked by some disciples from the Pure Yang Sect. As such, he vented his anger on his opponent. With his victory, he rose to 22nd place.
Not long after Wanqi Hong left the battlefield, the 28th participant flew into the battlefield. He was from the Feudal Lord Mansion. He knew very well he was no match for Yuan Mo Yu and Wanqi Hong so he did not hesitate at all as he challenged the 23rd participant.
