Chapter 983 The Opener
You Wanren got up from the ground. He couldn’t help spitting out a mouthful of blood and his chest felt like it was on fire.
Fang Qiong’er felt a little embarrassed and said, “I’m sorry, Senior Brother. I just improved my cultivation, so I can’t control my strength well and hit him too hard.”
Qin Haodong waved his hand and said, “It’s nothing. He’s just the second substitute. We don’t need him to compete anyway.”
When he heard this, You Wanren spat out another mouthful of blood. This was too much.
At this time, his heart sank and he was in dismay. “She is at the middle stage of the Combination Realm now!”
He could understand why Murong Jinghong was able to step into the middle stage of the Combination Realm. After all, her previous foundation was clear.
But Fang Qiong’er was only at the final stage of the Voiding Realm before. In just a few days, she had also improved to this realm. When did the masters at the middle stage of the Combination Realm become as worthless as sweet potatoes?
In any case, he had seen that his cultivation was indeed the weakest among the seven people.
Qin Haodong looked at him with a smile and said, “So? Do you still want to challenge?”
You Wanren had even been beaten by Fang Qiong’er, who was the weakest. If he continued to challenge, he would have to fight against Yun Qianqian, the first substitute. What was the point of fighting for a substitute position?
He wiped the blood from the corner of his mouth, gave a cold harrumph, and said nothing more.
Qin Haodong said, “Since no one has any objections, then let’s go.”
The Martial Arts Practice Field of the Rosefinch Royal Family was filled with nearly ten thousand people. All the civil officials, military officials, and nobles in the kingdom were here to watch the competition.
In the stand, King Liu Zhaoji sat in the middle with the first prince Liu Hong next to him.
After Qin Haodong and the others arrived, they immediately attracted these people’s attention.
“Do you see that? That’s the Tortoise Kingdom. They always end up last…”
“There’s no way out because they are too weak. If they are not at the bottom, who would be…”
“Although I’m not sure who will be the champion this year, I’m sure that the last place must belong to the Tortoise Kingdom…”
When she heard all the scathing remarks, the Little Witch said angrily, “They are so snobbish. Wait and see. When I beat up the students of Rosefinch Academy, let’s see if they would still be so snobbish?”
Qin Haodong said, “Everywhere in the world, winners are like kings. They will naturally shut up when they see our strength later.”
After everyone was seated, it was time for the competition to begin. Liu Zhaoji began to speak in the stand.
“We extend our warmest welcome to the students of the Dragon Academy, the Tiger Academy, and the Tortoise Academy to our Rosefinch Kingdom and for participating in the exchange conference this year. The purpose of the exchange conference between the Four Kingdoms is to study and improve our skills together…”
Qin Haodong looked at Liu Zhaoji, who spoke so confidently at the stand. He found it funny. This kind of scene was somewhat familiar. On earth, whenever there were large-scale activities, the leaders would talk in the same way.
The long speech lasted for half an hour. Only then did Liu Zhaoji say, “For this exchange conference, our Rosefinch Kingdom has specially prepared generous prizes.
“No matter which academy wins the first place in the competition, they will get one low-level Immortal Crystal.”
As soon as he said that, all the people in the whole field became excited. Generally speaking, Immortal Crystals were legendary. Even the low-level Immortal Crystal was considered an extremely rare treasure.
The Rosefinch Kingdom was so generous and offered a low-level Immortal Crystal as the prize. Did they think that their team was sure to win the championship?
Qin Haodong felt sleepy due to the long speech. When he heard the words “low-level Immortal Crystal”, he suddenly perked up.
One low-level Immortal Crystal had already improved his cultivation to the middle stage of the Combination Realm. If he could find two more, he estimated that his cultivation would be improved to the late stage of the Combination Realm.
There was a trace of complacency on Liu Zhaoji’s face. Obviously, he was very satisfied with the sensational effect he had caused.
He continued, “Apart from this, the top three teams of the exchange conference will also have the opportunity to cultivate in the Rosefinch Spiritual Spring for one day…”
In other people’s eyes, the Rosefinch Kingdom’s decision to let the top three teams of the exchange conference cultivate in the Rosefinch Spiritual Spring for one day was to humiliate the Tortoise Kingdom.
Four teams participated in the exchange conference in total. The top three could enter Rosefinch Spiritual Spring for cultivating. The Tortoise Kingdom would be the last team and could not enter the spring. How could the Tortoise Kingdom accept this?
Based on the past records of many years, there wasn’t a single person who didn’t believe that the Tortoise Kingdom would be the last team.
Qin Haodong was extremely thrilled. Apart from the other things, just these two prizes were enough to make him feel excited.
After Liu Zhaoji finished speaking, it was time to draw lots for the competition. The leader of each academy went up to draw lots to determine their opponent.
As the leader for Tortoise Academy, Qin Haodong went up to the front of the stand.
The first prince Liu Hong was in charge of drawing lots. He held a paper box in which were three paper strips of paper crumpled into balls.
The process was very simple. The host, the Rosefinch Kingdom, would be the first to draw. The remaining two academies would naturally become each other’s opponents.
Qin Haodong glanced at the three paper balls with his Divine Consciousness and found that one of them vaguely had the mark of Spiritual Sense.
Sure enough, as the host, the Rosefinch Kingdom had done something. According to his guess, the paper ball that was marked must have the name of Tortoise Academy on it.
They all wanted to compete with the weakest. The Rosefinch Academy was the host and had this opportunity, so they definitely wanted to obtain some benefits from it.
From their perspective, the team that competed with the Tortoise Academy in the first competition would get many benefits. Not only could the team save their strength after winning, but the team would win the support of the spectators present and the morale of the team could also be greatly boosted.
Sure enough, after the draw began, the Rosefinch Academy’s leader reached out and grabbed the paper ball that was marked.
When Liu Hong announced the result, the crowd cheered. In those people’s eyes, the Rosefinch Academy had won the first round of the competition.
Qin Haodong couldn’t help sneering. He didn’t know if the Rosefinch Academy could still laugh later.
Li Mengyao smiled as well. Everything was going according to her plan. As long as the plan went smoothly, the Dragon Academy still had a chance to win the championship once more.
Everything was prepared. The opening match of this exchange conference was between Rosefinch Academy and Tortoise Academy.
Rosefinch Academy’s leader was called Chen Xuanshuang. She was a cold and elegant woman whose cultivation was at the middle stage of the Combination Realm.
Qin Haodong was secretly curious. She was from Rosefinch Academy. Shouldn’t she be one with a fiery nature? Why was the leader so cold?
After the teammates from both sides entered the preparation area, Chen Xuanshuang said to the teammates behind her, “As the opener, our Rosefinch Academy only can win and there is no room for defeat. Who will fight in the first round?”
“Leader, leave it to me to compete with the weak Tortoise Academy.”
The speaker was a tall male student named Liu Baigang. His cultivation was at the early stage of the Combination Realm. He was not a master in Rosefinch Academy.
Much like the others, Chen Xuanshuang did not take the Tortoise Academy seriously.
In her heart, her real opponents were the Dragon Academy and the Tiger Academy. To compete with the Tortoise Academy, sending a person at the early stage of the Combination Realm was enough.
“Go ahead. Remember that you can only win. Don’t lose.”
Liu Baigang said proudly, “Leader, don’t worry. If I can’t even defeat the Tortoise Academy, it would be better to kill myself.”
Then, he strode to the arena in the middle of the Martial Arts Practice Field.
Qin Haodong saw his cultivation clearly. He said to Fang Qiong’er, “Junior Sister, you compete in the first round.”
No one had any objection to his order. Fang Qiong’er went up to the arena one step at a time.
After both sides were ready, the referee proclaimed the start of the round.
Seeing Fang Qiong’er, Liu Baigang laughed and said, “Your Tortoise Academy is not strong, but it has many beautiful women. Sister, you’d better go back and let a man compete with me. Generally speaking, I don’t hit women.”
A hint of disdain flashed across Fang Qiong’er’s face. “With your low cultivation, we have flattered you too much when we took you on as an opponent. Unfortunately, our Tortoise Academy has no one weaker than me.”
Hearing these words, the crowd around burst into an uproar. No one had thought that the weakling Tortoise Academy would be so arrogant. It seemed that she did not take the Rosefinch Academy seriously.
“Don’t waste time. Don’t stand on ceremony. Teach her a lesson…”
“She dares to look down on Rosefinch Academy! Even if she is a beauty, she can’t do that. Teach her a lesson…”
“I can’t believe a weak woman dares to say that. We must let her see how powerful our Rosefinch Academy is…”
That was the advantage of staging the competition on home ground. The people around were angry because of her words and kept cheering for their own members.
Liu Zhaoji sat in the stand, tasted the exquisite fruit, and said, “The Tortoise Academy is getting increasingly worse. In the past, although their strength was weak, they still knew how to be modest. These people who came here this time don’t know the immensity of heaven and earth.”
Liu Hong said, “As the saying goes, one would only give up only at the sight of the gallows. They will know how powerful our Rosefinch Academy is later.”
Liu Baigang said, “Since you are so stubborn, don’t blame me for being rude.”
After that, he raised his hand and suddenly delivered a punch. Although this punch looked sloppy, in fact, he was not careless at all. He used Rosefinch Academy’s most powerful skill, a phoenix dancing in the nine heavens.
With his punch, the fierce energy instantly turned into a soaring phoenix and then rushed toward Fang Qiong’er with overwhelming momentum.
Although he was only at the early stage of the Combination Realm, the temperature around seemed to rise by several degrees when he punched with all his might.
Liu Zhaoji nodded and said, “Not bad. He has this cultivation at such a young age. In the future, he will definitely be the backbone of our Rosefinch Kingdom.”
Liu Xiaofu said, “Your Majesty, the participants this time are the strongest students in the history of our Rosefinch Academy. Our goal is to win the championship…”
Speaking of this, her cold face burst into a smile. However, right at this moment, her eyes suddenly widened and she stared at the arena as if she had seen something unbelievable.
Fang Qiong’er started to make her move. Without any flashy actions, she just raised her hand and hit out with her palm. It was like an adult was beating a child.
This casual palm strike instantly disintegrated the momentum of that phoenix which then dissipated into the air.
However, her palm strike didn’t stop, and directly slapped Liu Baigang in the face.
Liu Baigang had exerted all his strength to use this phoenix dancing in the nine heavens skill, which was full of power. He didn’t expect that his trump card would be blasted into nothingness by the other party in an instant.
Before he could react, he felt a painful blow on his face. Then, his body flew out like a kite with a cut string and fell outside the arena with a plop.
She won with a single move. Moreover, her move was very casual. The entire area instantly fell silent.
No one expected this to happen in the first round. The mighty Rosefinch Academy that was going to become the champion actually lost.
The member whom they had confidence in could not even withstand one move of his opponent. He lost and suffered an embarrassing defeat.
Liu Zhaoji, Liu Hong, and Liu Xiaofu who were sitting in the stand were struck dumb and seemed to be frozen in their seats. They didn’t understand how Tortoise Academy who had always been weak, could become so formidable.
Even Li Mengyao, who knew the background details, was shocked. Originally, she thought that the strongest members of the Tortoise Academy were only Qin Haodong and the Little Witch. She did not expect that this female student would be so powerful.
