The middle-aged woman dropped down in the middle of the arenas, where every contestant could get by jumping a little bit.
All of the contestants jumped down from their arenas to draw the lots. And Bai Feng was amongst them.
He looked a little bit out of place compared to all of the prodigal-looking contestants who wanted to impress the observing elders who were out of sight.
Every one of the contestants was more flamboyant than the other. the only normal-looking people were Bai Feng and Chen Lingxi.
Bai Feng wore his normal casual clothes without the apron, and Chen Lingxi wore a pink shirt with mesh under armor. That was visible through a small gap between her shirt and her chest. She also had her red hair done in a ponytail so it wouldn't get in her eyes when she fought.
Everyone else was more or less looking quite weird, just like that dainty young man that first arrived, even though he was one of the more normal-looking ones. It seemed this tou
Bai Feng couldn't sense where the attack was coming from. But he was certain that it would come. He could feel it. His skin was getting goosebumps from his senses. It was going to be something big. Suddenly, white, almost invisible threads started to appear all over Bai Feng in the form of a cage. Then, the cage caught on fire as it slowly made its way towards Bai Feng, trying to catch him inside of it like a pig to the slaughter. Bua Jing's voice was heard from everywhere near the arena as a burst of chaotic laughter ensued at the same time: "Forfeit if you don't want to become cut meat!" Upon Bua Jing's words, the cage started to move closer and closer towards Bai Feng, trying to intimidate him into giving up and forfeiting the match. Bai Feng didn't say anything as he glanced at the flaming threads which were surrounding him. He decided to touch one of the threads to see how sharp it was. He easily ignored th
The two new fighters were two men.The one on the right was called Shen Mu, and the one on the left was called Bing Dong.Shen Mu was an aloof person who stood at 1,75 meters. His temperament was cold as he scoffed while he glanced at Bing Dong.He wore an azure blue eyepatch on his left eye- which was assorted with his blue shoulder-length hair.He wore a battle uniform with the characters of strong on its backside. It consisted of a white gi with a small blue sash that kept his gi pants on his lower side. And he was barefoot.He looked rather skinny, but his muscles were well defined. But the thing that set him off apart from the rest was his stance. It gave the feeling of innate aggression.At a second glance, his Qi aura was quite intimidating and as cold as his surface personality.Bing Dong looked to be a rather simple young man with an average build and height. He stood around 1,72 meters, and he sported a crew-cut hairstyle.
The auras of the two ladies started to increase in strength as they glared at each other.A clashing of wills started in the air as lightning sparked between the two girl's gazes.Chen Lingxi didn't say anything else as she dashed forward towards Ju Fen with a surprising amount of speed. Her body was lowered, and she seemingly danced as she ran step by step towards Ju Fen with an outstretched hand, ready to pierce her stomach.Ju Fen's eyes were moving at quick speeds as she calculated the route that Chen Lingxi was taking, then she smiled and sidestepped the strike before raising her hand and striking the incoming surprised face of Chen Lingxi with her elbow.Chen Lingxi could feel the blood starting to gush from her nose, and her eyebrows wrinkled up into a frown as she clutched her nose to stop the bleeding before doing a cartwheel backward to create some distance between herself and Ju Fen.Chen Lingxi couldn't help but note that she underestim
Chen Lingxi tried to pull all ounces of willpower from her body to dodge the incoming needle. That was going to knock her cleanout. She could feel time slow down around her as the needle was getting closer to her forehead as her eyes analyzed the needle. She realized that the blunt end was going to strike her forehead and not the sharp end. It seemed the Ju Fen was still scared about what could happen if she injured Chen Lingxi. She started to think of any way to mitigate the damage to the point that she wouldn't be knocked out, but her Qi reserves were empty. She could feel her body was getting quite cold as she wasn't used to not having Qi circulating inside her body. Suddenly, her eyes glowed up. She knew what to do to avoid the needle, and it was so simple. She was using everything she had to stand up right now, so she just let go, and her body fell atop Ju Fen's she grinned as she dodged the needle one meter away from it hitting her forehead.
Bai Feng gently held Ming Li in his arms as he wanted to help her off the arena. If Chen Lingxi was conscious. She would have surely been quite angry and jealous of the current situation of Ming Li, even though she wouldn't know why. Fortunately for Bai Feng's mental well-being. 20 minutes wasn't enough time for her to regain consciousness due to her extreme exhaustion. Also, she wasn't fed the pill. The pill needed to be taken while conscious, or there might be side effects. It didn't matter if you fell unconscious after as long as you took the pill while you were awake. Because of Ju Fen's and Chen Lingxi's unconsciousness, they couldn't draw the lots yet, so they had to wait. But Bai Feng had moved on to the next part of the tournament. He let Ming Li down on one of the benches near the arenas. They were meant for the people who lost and were unable to move because losers didn't get the privilege of getting one of these pills that w
Lang Lue was a young man, actually from his looks, he seemed to be the youngest out of the remaining contestants. He was quite short, standing at 1,53 meters, and he had a boyish young face, a head marred with wild golden hair and green pupilless eyes. He was wearing a royal black face mask that hid his mouth. And he seemed to have quite long ears. He wore a nonconforming outfit with his looks: a black gi jacket with a white undershirt and black gi pants, along with sandals. He seemed to be rather bored as his eyes were dropping. And he could barely keep himself awake versus his opponent. Mia Shu was the last female in the batch besides Chen Lingxi after Ju Fen's loss. She was of average height, standing at around 1,65 meters, and she also looked quite average. There was nothing of note on her, black eyes, black hair. A pretty plain face with no features that could be called unique nor ugly. She would be the type of person that
Bai Feng was still on the fence regarding Chen Lingxi. Her actions back then had marked him by quite a bit. And made him understand that Chen Lingxi was a person that he shouldn't associate with.She was dangerous because she always had her way due to her father letting her do whatever she wanted without any repercussions. That moment when Mo Pian had tried to tell her off angered her so much that she almost killed him, and this wasn't a normal reaction by a long shot.Wanting to kill someone and acting on that because they disagreed with you or what you did was something only psychopaths would experience and do.Bai Feng was someone who didn't know much about bad people as he lived in a relatively normal mountain village, and he had never interacted with a bad person up till then, but the moment he met Chen Lingxi. He realized that she was bad.Willing to discard a person's life over a petty argument showed how much she looked down on the life of normal
Chen Lingxi looked at the referee, and she wanted to argue. She didn't want to fight with Bai Feng so soon. Chen Lingxi wanted to fight him in the finals if it was possible. It was quite poetic and the way she wanted it to be. Two new friends fought their way out to the finals of the sect's tournament. Chen Lingxi's fantasy was crumbling in front of her. She didn't even get to fight in the semi-finals! She had observed Bai Feng's fights, and she realized that she might lose. However, she was also prideful, and she wouldn't throw the match because she foresaw her loss. Arguing with the referee would be useless. Regardless that it was her mistake that led them to this situation. She wanted to get up to the arena, but her step faltered before she concentrated and jumped up before waving towards Bai Feng so he could do the same. Bai Feng looked at her form up onto the arena, and he didn't know what to say. Her hesit
