Chapter 83 (The Courage Challenge – 12)
“Humph, so intimate. I’ll humiliate you in a moment!” Murong Shan Shan said, gnashing her teeth.
Cocoa looked at her in surprise, “What happened? Who’s bothering you?”
Murong Shan Shan showed a gloomy face, “It’s nothing. Throw a curse on their archer, and first concentrate all forces on her to kill her!”
The beautiful host, Fei Er, she had changed her clothes into a pure white uniform. Swinging her ass on the stage, she announced loudly, “The next match will be the final of the first Courage Challenge group competition. It is now Beijing time at 12:40. I know a lot of you haven’t eaten your lunch yet, but this match will surely be a wonderful game and make all of your waiting worth it!”
Fei Er paused a moment and then said, “Next, both sides please come up to the stage. The match will start in 30 seconds!”
Our team and Murong Shan Shan’s team were sent to the game stage almost at the same time. Although both sides knew each other, but, the situation was still intense. Murong Shan Shan tightly gripped her sword, coldly looking at me without saying anything.
Xu Lin bit her lips, “A Swordsman, a Thief, two Mages, and one Cleric. Lin Fan, you know them better, what’s our strategy?”
I looked puzzled at Murong Shan Shan and then whispered, “Murong Shan Shan’s operating skill and explosive power are very frightening. Also, don’t take lightly the attack power of the Thief. Those two Mages were picked by her, so their skill and equipment shouldn’t be that bad. Cocoa is just average, she isn’t as fierce as Murong Shan Shan. Xin Yu and I will first quickly kill the Cleric, Cocoa. Sister Lin and Xue Han, both of you have to watch out for Murong Shan Shan’s skill, [Sword Qi]. It can reach a target at a distance of 5 yards, and its attack power is very strong. You should try to avoid being insta-killed!”
Then I added, “Li Qing, use your summon to interrupt the Mages spell casting. If there’s a chance, sister Lin and Xue Han should slow Murong Shan Shan movement with your magic. But, in any case, avoid contact with her, especially Xue Han. If you’re dead, then our chance of winning will be greatly reduced.”
Lu Xue Han blinked her beautiful eyes, smiled and said, “I’ll do my best!”
The system started the countdown for the beginning of the match:
Right at the beginning, Murong Shan Shan got cursed and her speed was lowered. But, still, her movement was fast. I immediately rushed toward Cocoa.
Cocoa had thrown a curse at me as well!
With a decisive decision, I immediately activated [Haste], and my movement speed returned almost to normal. Cocoa who had just thrown a curse was hit by Aeon Flux and got stunned. Without any reserve, I unleashed [Combo] and [Heavy Strike] at once.
Four red numbers emerged from Cocoa’s head, and she became the first player who left the game!
Before I could even be happy, a woman’s scream rang up behind me…
Who was it? Who was dead?!
Within a white light, I could only see the remnants of Xin Yu’s shadow. Traces of frost could still be faintly seen on her body. Stealing the Heaven revoked his flashing blue dagger and continued to rush toward Lu Xue Han who wasn’t far from there.
F*ck! Xin Yu had been instantly killed by Murong Shan Shan’s Ice Blade and Stealing the Heaven’s ambush!
Lu Xue Han’s situation was also dangerous!
Murong Shan Shan’s Night Elf’s Sword was flowed with a swiveling light, and a wisp of blue ripples flowed on the edge of the sword…
Not good. She was going to use her skill that she was proud of, [Sword Qi], against Lu Xue Han!
It was already too late to save Lu Xue Han, so I could only change my target toward the two Mages in front of me. When they saw me coming, a Mage immediately dodged to the left. However, he was already too late. My Sword of Darkness covered in ice crystals already crossed in his escape route…
I used [Frozen Blade] for the very first time in this tournament!
The effect of 1.5 times damage wasn’t the same. I continued to swing the sword, resulting of the loss of the Magician’s life!
I glanced back, and the scene I didn’t want to see the most still happened!
The Thief’s dagger flashed in a green light. Although Lu Xue Han cleverly maneuvered from his side to escape, but, the poisonous dagger still accurately hit her. In the next second, Murong Shan Shan’s [Sword Qi] also fell upon Lu Xue Han…
Did the Heaven doom us a losing fate? Even the Sword Qi critically hit Lu Xue Han, and her beautiful figure gradually faded away from the stage…
“So terrible. The killing is so fast!” I groaned silently and dragged my sword toward the other Mage. He was clearly terrified by my last attack and quickly moved to the right. But, he was still hit by my [Combo], although not getting maximum damages. Three attacks only resulted in the normal half damage, but still caused the level 26 Mage to lose half of his Health.
On the other side, Xu Lin had been pushed back by Murong Shan Shan and Stealing the Heaven. The Thief had already increased his speed to 150%, making him seemed like a blur. Even with her excellent operating skill, she was still hit by the poisonous dagger. With her speed reduced by 50%, in front of two high-attack close combat professionals, she immediately became a lamb waiting to be slaughtered.
My Sword of Darkness slashed across the Mage’s back. He wobbled a bit and then turned into a white light!
Almost at the same time, Murong Shan Shan had sent Xu Lin out of the arena. Although Li Qing attacked the Thief together with her summoned pet, but her attack power was simply too low. She had attacked him for so long only to knock out half of the Thief’s Health.
“Kill the Summoner first!”
Murong Shan Shan rapidly reversed her course. She quickly waved her sword and fired her powerful [Combo] and [Heavy Strike] toward Li Qing. This low Health Summoner was killed instantly.
It was already too late for me to save Li Qing. In just two minutes, the situation had been turned completely in Murong Shan Shan’s favor. They still had a full-Health Swordsman and a half-Health Thief, and on the other side, I was the only one remaining from our team. To add to that, the CD time for Stealing the Heaven’s Stealth skill had worn off. My heart almost sank to hit rock bottom when he suddenly disappeared into the void.
Murong Shan Shan didn’t rush to attack. With a laugh, she leaned her sword on the ground and sweetly said, “You never expected this, right?”
I didn’t dare to answer her. The Thief had probably already snuck up behind my back. His Ambush and Backstab attack couldn’t be ignored. Even my high Defense of 363 wouldn’t be able to handle it completely.
The scene became very awkward. Murong Shan Shan smiled very sweetly, but she didn’t make any movement. It seemed that she was afraid of my powerful attack, and she was just waiting for the Thief to attack me and then she would give me the killing blow.
With the voice, the Thief had finally made his move!
