“Big Bro Sima, we don’t have to be so sneaky.” Shen Yuan touched the mask on his face, feeling extremely uncomfortable, and could not resist saying.
“Low-key, low-key.” Sima Xiang Shan said softly. He was wearing a woman mask dressed to the nines, dressed up gorgeously, and those who did not know, would think that he was a woman.
Shen Yuan’s gaze landed on Xiang Shan’s mask, and he felt like retching. Big Boss Sima’s habits were always queer. Luckily my mask is more normal, just an ordinary clown mask.
“Let’s go and watch the guy that defeated you.” Xiang Shan’s voice came from behind the mask, always with a hint of trouble that makes one’s hair stand on their ends, and made Shen Yuan have goosebumps all over his body.
Big Boss Sima’s power was deep and unfathomable, so much that even the strict principal had to treat him favourably.
Shen Yuan had just come out from seclusion, and was dragged by Big Boss Sima.
Suddenly, Xiang Shan stopped in his tracks, and turned.
Shen Yuan was distracted, but immediately acted and turned his body as well.
Not far behind them, three ladies who were wearing veils and bamboo hats, had their gazes distantly looking over.
“Han Bing Ning.” Xiang Shan quietly said to himself.
Shen Yuan’s eyelid jumped, and his complexion changed. Of the entire Star Wind City, the only two who could contend with Big Boss Sima, were Han Bing Ning and Liang Qiu! Shen Yuan had actually exchanged pointers with Big Boss Sima a number of times before, and Big Boss SiMa’s power led him to feel that he was unable to resist.
But Han Bing Ning, was a martial artist who was able to contend directly with Big Boss Sima.
Why was she here?
Cai Xue was like a little bird that had escaped its cage, she was extremely cheerful, and although she had a veil and bamboo hat on her, her youthfulness and vivaciousness could not be masked: “Senior Sister is too powerful! The Principal actually agreed to let us out today, I did not expect that!”
“Although there is nothing much to see during the preliminary competition, it is good to come out to take in some air.” He Xiao Qin was still rather happy. These days, the Principal personally supervised their trainings, and practically everybody was whining for days.
Senior Han actually brought them to the Principal, claiming she wanted to bring them to watch the preliminary competition at the Star Wind Martial Meet. At the point in time, they were so worried. Senior had to find a more reliable excuse to leave the school.
Why would the principal agree to a shoddy excuse to watch the preliminary competition?
Yet they hadn’t expected that the Principal would agree right away and exhorted them to watch the fight carefully.
Cai Xue and He Xiao Xin were both muddleheaded. Watch the fight carefully? What’s there to watch at the Martial Meet preliminary competition?
“Senior, which competition shall we watch?” Xue Cai asked curiously.
Han Bing Ning was just about to reply, when suddenly, she had a sensing in her heart. She stopped her footsteps, raised her head and looked forward. Cai Xue and He Xiao Qin who were standing by her side sensed something was weird and so they followed Han Bing Ning’s gaze and looked forward. Their gazes were as sharp as swords as though it was going to pierce through the thin veil.
Not far away, two men in their masks were looking straight at them.
“Sima Xiang Shan.” Han Bing Ning’s icy cold voice made Cai Xue and He Xiao Qin’s faces changed drastically.
These four words and those weird masks seemed to add on a gush of luster to be feared of.
The two sides just looked from at each other from afar.
“Hey, hey!” behind the rich masks came a shrilling laughter. Sima Xiang Shang seemed to have found something interesting.
“This is interesting.” Han Bing Ning said coldly behind the mask. A tinge of playfulness flashed across her beautiful eyes.
The hostility displayed by both sides disappeared into thin air suddenly.
Sima Xiang Shan looked at them before he disappeared in the crowd with Shen Yuan.
A flash of horror struck Xue Cai and He Xiao Qin’s eyes. The two looked at each other in dismay. Previously, they did not understand why senior would bring them to watch the preliminary competition or why the Principal would agree to this so easily. But right now, they found out Crystal Sky’s Sima Xiang Shan also came down personally, so there must be some powerful figure here.
However, since when did such a powerful figure appear in Star Wind City?
Xue Cai and He Xiao Qin said together.
“Let’s go.” han Bing Ning threw out two words coldly and walked forward.
Xue Cai and He Xiao Qin hurriedly caught up with her.
“It seems to be this place.” Wang Zhen said casually.
Ming Guang lowered voice suddenly: “Bro Zhen, there seems to be a lot of people following behind us.”
“Many people?” Wang Zhen replied with an oh: “Relax, that has got nothing to do with us.”
“Nothing to do with us…” Guang Ming did not understand why did Bro Zhen got such confidence.
“Come, let’s go in.” Wang Zhen walked into the viewing platform of the plaza without turning back.
Ming Guang heart was very curious. Even though Bro Zhen had a good temper, to personally attend and watch a preliminary competition, such things had never happened before.
What kind of person was worth Bro Zhen’s to make a trip down?
Wang Zhen and Guang Ming came the earliest. There was no one else on the viewing platform. Guang Ming looked around at the viewing platform: “Bro Zhen, did we come to the wrong place?”
“Oh, it shouldn’t be wrong.” Wang Zhen replied.
Ming Guang shook his head continuously, the viewing platform was pathetically small. And there was no one there. There were too many preliminary competitions commencing at the same time. On top of that, the fighters were mostly all with lower standards so basically there would not be any audience. Usually the ones who would watch are the family and friends of the fighters.
A big group of people rushed in. when they saw Wang Zhen and Guang Ming, their eyes lit up immediately and gathered around them. With such a small viewing platform, it was flooded with people.
Guang Ming saw the rush of people coming in and his scalp got numb: “Bro Zhen, they really followed us here.”
“Oh, that’s alright.” Wang Zhen replied casually. His gaze was set tightly on Tang Tian who was snoring loudly at the corner of the stage.
“May I ask if you’re the student Guang Ming from the Beast Academy?” A beautiful girl squeezed her way through and looked at Guang Ming with adoration.
All the bad feelings Guang Ming was feeling faded away immediately. As he was preparing to pose handsomely, he saw the entrance from his corners of his eyes and his eyes congealed.
Wang Zhen seemed to feel the same way too, he turned his head and set his gaze at the entrance.
“Why are there so many people!” Shen Yuan was shocked. This was only a preliminary competition yet the viewing platform was full. This is not logical.
It was a bottleneck at the entrance of the viewing platform. They could not squeeze their way through.
Right at this time, Han Bing Ning and her juniors from Northern Yan Academy came by their side.
“What a coincidence. I never thought that Miss Bing Ning would be so interested in Tang Tian.” Sima Xiang Shan smirked. His words sent chills to her spine.
“Didn’t Senior Sima come as well?” Han Bing Ning said with her icy cold voice, without any undulations.
Xue Cai and He Xiao Qin stared at the two from Crystal Sky Academy with an unfriendly look. Crystal Sky and Northern Yan was naturally unfriendly to one another as they were both ranked either first or second.
“Please excuse me as I make the way for Miss Ning.” Sima smiled sneakily. He took a step and walked towards the viewing platform.
Sima Xiang Shang’s footwork was extremely light such that it did not make a sound at all. It was as if there were a dark and gloomy halo covering his silhouette. It was a qi so dangerous that it covered the entire plaza instantly.
Instantly, the group of people who were blocking the entrance of the viewing platform all turned pale. They turned their heads and looked at Sima Xiang Shan in fear.
“Please excuse me.” Sima Xiang Shan’s voice was gentle and soft, yet his voice could be heard throughout the entire plaza.
Everyone gave way subconsciously.
Sima Xiang Shan then turned sideways and made an inviting gesture.
Han Bing Ning nodded at him to give thanks, then she walked along the small and unoccupied space towards the viewing platform. The people who were in the way avoided intuitively.
Three mysterious women with veils and two mysterious men with masks, appeared at the small viewing platform unexpectedly, attracting all other gazes instantly.
The five of them never thought the viewing platform of the preliminary competition would be so small that it could only hold two to three hundred people. Where they competed, the viewing platform could hold up to thousands of people so they dressed in disguise, in hopes to not attract any attention.
However, in this plaza which could only hold two hundred odd people, these five could not be discussed conspicuously. They were the moonlight in the darkness, and were extremely eye-catching.
After that, they saw Wang Zhen and Ming Guang.
Wang Zhen could recognize the two of them immediately. Confused he asked; “Why are you dressed like this?”
They were no strangers to one each other, and had sparred several times. Wang Zhen was one of the big shots in the Beast Academy. Both of their statuses and experiences were not much difference.
Others on the viewing platform heard and listened attentively. With Wang Zhen speaking with such familiar tone in his voice, these five people must have remarkable origins.
Be it Sima Xiang Shan or Han Bing Ning, they were stumped by Wang Zhen’s word. Could he pretending to not know them?
“Senior Wang Zhen.” Han Bing Ning greeted politely and took off her veil. Xue Cai and He Xiao Qin quickly followed suit, and also took off their veils and conical hats.
The viewing platform instantly exploded.
“Miss Bing Ning!”
Within the ear splitting clamours, Han Bing Ning remained expressionless, without a change in her expression.
“Big Zhen, you always make things difficult for me.” Annoyed, Sima Xiang Shen sighed and took off his mask.
The loud clamours came to a stop and the agitated audience immediately became stoned faced.
Sima Xiang Shan!
The plaza was dead silent.
The fear was like a plague spreading through and it climbed onto the faces of these people and right into their eyes.
Sima Xiang Shan smiled with his eyes squinted. He looked very ordinary and he seemed gentle and friendly.
But no one thought this way.
Sima Xian Shan!
Ever since Qian Hui left Star Wind City, Sima Xiang Shan had dominated the position of number one in Star Wind City, but he was treated very differently from Qian Hui. Sima Xiang Shan’s reputation was vicious and it could make a crying baby stop crying.
Cruel, vicious, short-tempered, insane…
Very powerful, weird personality had caused everyone to fear for his existence.
This…what exactly is this preliminary competition about!
In the dead silence, Tang Tian opened his eyes in a daze.
Huh, where did all these people came from…
Tang Tian looked over at the viewing platform with his drowsy eyes. Out of a sudden, he noticed Han Bing Ning.
Tang Tian became energetic instantly and waved his arms high up towards the viewing platform shouting.
“Aha, young lady! Did you come to witness a legend of a godlike young lad fighting? Wahaha, young miss, you have precise foresight!”
The deadly silence was broken with Tang Tian’s shoutings. All the gloomy and panic-stricken atmosphere was gone abruptly.
Everyone set their gaze on Han Bing Ning.
It seemed as though Han Bing Ning’s face did not change, but somewhere everyone could not see, the fingers that were holding onto the sword were turning white.
This was the first time she had ever wanted to dig herself into the ground.
