Promotion from ‘Snake’ To ‘Wolf’
Being unable to kill Long Xian Li, and with his identity blown, Fu Su naturally had to give up the competition, but the masked lady could still participate, since her identity was unknown. Just by changing her mask, no one would know who she was.
But who was the Blood Noble? Sensing the Evil Qi in his body, that strange and bizarre Qi… It wasn’t Spirit Demon Qi or Evil Qi, and it slightly resembled something like Demonic Energy.
“Is he from the Demonic Continent?”
Returning back to Qin Creek, Su Yun was in deep thoughts in his own cave. How can he be a Demon, he had a totally different feeling from the people of the Demonic continent.
“Can he be another kind of Demonic monster?” Su Yun quietly thought.
Just then, Hong Yan walked into the cave, but her expression was red and angered, as though she was flustered from getting tickled.
“Hong Yan, what happened?” Su Yun asked.
Hong Yan was extremely furious: “Bei Xuan Ming, that nasty person, he actually dared to beat Shen Hao to that extent, he truly is too despicable! That group of despicable people! They are truly undisciplined and out of control! Wait until I meet them, I must definitely beat them down, and help brother Shen Hao vent his anger!”
It seemed like she knew what happened to Shen Hao.
“Bei Xuan Ming’s group has power that is not simple, you better watch yourself.” Su Yun said.
The two of them talked for a little longer, then they sat down cross legged and began meditating.
Time passed by quickly. In a blink of an eye, a new day had arrived.
The two of them left the cave, and once again headed towards the gigantic statue. At that moment, the statue was surrounded by a vast crowd, with an unknown number of people gathered together.
The people who lost the competition of ‘Promoting From Insect to Snake’ did not have to leave Qin Creek, they could stay and continue watching the competition, watching the experts crossing blows could benefit them as well.
Su Yun and Hong Yan found Wang Zhong Shan and Li Qing. Without question, everyone of them were enraged by what happened to Shen Hao.
What made Su Yun surprised though, was that in the group, not only did Hong Yan pass, even Wang Zhong Shan had smoothly won his first round, while the remaining people were eliminated.
However, Wang Zhong Shan’s complexion was not as good as the day before, it was clear that the battle had exhausted him, and it would most likely be difficult for him to advance any further.
“Bei Xuan Ming’s group has arrived.”
When everyone was talking casually, Li Qing suddenly said it with a whisper.
Everyone turned to look at the entrance. Bei Xuan Ming led his group of people, but upon seeing Wang Zhong Shan and the rest, Bei Xuan Ming’s lips rose.
“Brother Wang, are you alright? Your complexion don’t seem so well.”
Seeing Wang Zhong Shan’s pale face, Bei Xuan Ming immediately asked while waving his fan.
“Very soon your face will be uglier than mine.” Wang Zhong Shan growled.
“Hahahaha we will see.” Bei Xuan Ming objected, laughed and led his people away.
“Despicable bastard.” Hong Yan was so angry that she was trembling.
Wang Zhong Shan kept his gaze, then consoled his groupmates: “Alright alright, everyone, don’t get angry, let’s get ready and win today’s competition.”
They did not bother with Bei Xuan Ming anymore, and prepared themselves.
The competition started in the afternoon, where everyone’s face were extremely dark.
The promotion from Insect to Snake had already eliminated half of the participants. The remaining participants might not be considered outstanding, but at least they were not some backwater cultivators, and the pressure was heavier.
From time to time cultivators would enter the competition grounds, and the place was buzzing with activity. Bursts of light would suddenly erupt from the groups, attracting everyone’s attention, it was the aura of light from the participants.
A group of white clothed spirit cultivators with masks walked into the competition grounds. They walked around the grounds, inspecting all the arenas, then casually sat in their previously allocated places. They were the Mountain River List’s acknowledged crew.
Su Yun sat by the side of the arena, awaiting the information from the mark. Hong Yan, Wang Zhong Shan and the rest were also seated by the sides, inspecting their treasures.
“Hey, tell me, where do you guys think the seeded participants are at now?”
Li Qing, who was at the side, used his Profound Spirit Qi to check the treasure ‘formless apple’ in his hand, and asked.
“Definitely in the Sacred Palace in Qin Creek.” Hong Yan pouted.
“I wonder if I, Li Qing, will ever have the chance to step into the Sacred Palace in my life!”
Wang Zhong Shan laughed out loud and patted Li Qing’s shoulder: “We will definitely have the chance.”
“I wish.” Li Qing laughed bitterly.
Just then, a beautiful woman quietly walked over and stood in front of Su Yun.
Wang Zhong Shan and the rest stopped what they were doing, and turned to look.
They saw a snow white slender figure, wearing a veil, the fairy that had devastatingly beautiful looks, Long Xian Li, was actually standing in front of them.
She stood there quietly. The gentle wind blew on her long black hair, revealing her face which caused everyone to focus on her, seemingly distracted.
A Beauty! Everyone immediately became moved.
“Elder, is this your old friend?”
Bai Yan Shan, Wang Hao, Zhang Kai Feng and the rest all walked over from behind, looking at Wang Zhong Shan and the group.
Long Xian Li did not reply to Bai Yan Shan, her eyes gently looking at Su Yun.
“You’re here to participate in the River Mountain List?” She asked gently, her voice was also very gentle, causing people to feel as if they were cleansed.
Su Yun who was meditating opened his eyes, he looked at Long Xian Li, without uttering a word, he nodded.
Bai Yan Shan, who was at the side, was startled. Seeing the eyes beneath the mask, her expression was astonished.
“Why does his eyes look so familiar?” Bai Yan Shan thought.
Long Xian Li looked at the rest. She then saw Wang Zhong Shan and said: “I remember you, you’re from the Wang Family of Long Ao Nation’s Sky Dragon City right?”
Wang Zhong Shan anxiously stood up, and immediately greeted: “I am Wang Zhong Shan, I greet Clan Elder Long.”
“Hong Yan greets Clan Elder Long.”
“Li Qing greets Clan Elder Long.”
Everyone started to respectfully greet her.
“Everyone, there is no need for the courtesy, all of you are Sky Martial Continent’s young talents. Sky Martial Continent will be relying on all of you for protection.”
Long Xian Li nodded her head. Seeing that Su Yun was not going to say anything, she stood there for a moment. Finally having nothing to say, she bit her lip, and turned to leave.
This made everyone suspicious.
What was the relationship between Wu Yun and Long Xian Li?
When the Immortal Sword Sect’s people left, everyone’s gaze all landed on Su Yun.
From there, everyone could confirm.
Su Yun was not a disciple from the Immortal Sword Sect!
Just that, not one of them saw it appropriate to seek Su Yun’s identity, and did not even look at each other. Although he had not interact with them for long, they all knew that Su Yun would not hurt them.
Just then, the heavy and low pitch chime sounded from afar. Following that, everyone in the competition grounds stopped moving, the stages shot out dazzling light auras, and almost at the same time, every participant’s mark in their arm all started to light up.
Everyone had gotten their information.
“I’m number 9!”
Hong Yan and Wang Zhong Shan called out their numbers, then looked at Su Yun.
Su Yun took a deep breath, and stood up.
“Everyone, do your best!”
Li Qing said.
They nodded, then headed to their respective stages.
“The second round of the Mountain River List’s selection competition’s ‘Promotion from Snake to Wolf’ is about to begin, all participants get ready.”
“Following this, we will announce the rules of the competition.”
A Qin Creek Protector used his Profound Spirit Qi to speak to the large audience, his voice resonating towards the entire competition grounds.
Everyone started to listen, no one dared to say a word.
When the series of words were finished, every participant started to find their stage and started ascending them.
Hong Yan did the same. She was lucky that stage number 9 was not far, so she saved a bit of time.
“Ah, so you are number 9.”
Just as Hong Yan was about to step up, an ear piercing voice came out.
She turned her head to look, only to see Chi Xiao Luan standing on the road, looking at her disdainfully.
“You’re number 9, too?” Hong Yan’s hand clenched.
“Unfortunately, no.” Chi Xiao Luan said, then laughed: “Don’t be anxious, there will be an ending between us. You better not disappoint me and fail here. I will wait for you in the next round.”
“Humph, you better take care of yourself first!” Hong Yan said angrily: “You better not stop at the snake rank! If not, it would be such a joke!”
“Heh, you think I will lose? You think too much!”
Chi Xiao Luan laughed disdainfully, then turned and left.
Hong Yan stared at her till she left. She was so angry, she was grinding her teeth. She wanted to immediately fight with Chi Xiao Luan. The entire way here, she did not know how many times she was ridiculed by her, and she could only respond by staring back. She still clearly remembered all the unforgivable acts Chi Xiao Luan had done.
“I will definitely defeat her!” Hong Yan reaffirmed herself.
Just that when the thought came up, it immediately disappeared.
She stared with her eyes wide open, at Chi Xiao Luan’s location, watching her as she gradually ascended the stage. Her expression gradually turned from anger to surprise.
“Tha… That stage?”
It was stage number 51.
Su Yun had his arms folded at his chest, with eyes closed, waiting quietly on the stage. When the opposing person walked up, he slowly opened his eyes.
In front of him was a lady dressed in a red skirt, and looked to be very young, but there was an evil air on her face. Carrying a slender Tang Knife in her hand, she raised her head to look at her opponent, and as though she was looking at herself, her face was immediately filled with shock.
“I didn’t expect my opponent this round would be you.”
Su Yun’s mouth curved into a slight arc, his eyes squinted as he stared at the lady in front of him.
Chi Xiao Luan did not expect that her second round would actually be him either!
She gasped heavily with a complicated look in her eyes, containing a trace of fear and a trace of unreconciliation.
Finally, the unreconciliation won over the fear.
“Wu Yun! Don’t you look down on people! Do you think I am afraid of you? You are wrong!”
Chi Xiao Luan knew that Su Yun was not simple. She growled, then took out the weird pearl from her storage ring and immediately swallowed the pearl.
“Second round, Promotion from ‘Snake’ to ‘Wolf’ match, participant Wu Yun against participant Chi Xiao Luan, will now commence!”
The judge waved his hand as he growled.
In that moment, Chi Xiao Luan’s body erupted with a huge large aura, a bright tight armor enveloped her body, and after that, the blade in her hand became a light blade. With a growl, she became a beam of light as she quickly sped towards Su Yun.
She shot out like a shooting star!
