Chapter 705: Bai Hao Entering The Arena
Translator: KurazyTolanzuraytor Editor: Jay
At that time, Bai He had taken Duan Ling Tian and ZI Shang to be his stepping stones for today.
But now amongst the two people that he’d taken to be stepping stones, one had defeated him with a single move, whereas, the other defeated Ye Xiao, who was stronger than him, with a single move.
How could he accept this?
“Could it be that I really am going to be ranked sixth? The bottom?” The corners of Bai He’s mouth were filled with bitterness, and his eyes were filled with unwillingness as his heart became warped and frenzied. “Duan Ling Tian surely acquired repeated fortuitous encounters to possess this cultivation at such an age… Why?! Why can Duan Ling Tian and Zi Shang obtain fortuitous encounters, yet I, Bai He, have none?”
“I hate! I hate!! The heavens are unfair! The heavens are unfair!!” At this moment, Bai He seemed to have completely forgotten that his birth was thousands of times better than Duan Ling Tian and Zi Shang.
He was the son of the Darkhan Dynasty’s Emperor, the respected Second Prince of the Darkhan Dynasty who received the reverence of all, whereas Duan Ling Tian and Zi Shang were only from a tiny Imperial Kingdom.
It was even to the extent that Duan Ling Tian was even from a tiny Kingdom beneath an Imperial Kingdom, and it was even inferior to Zi Shang.
“Duan Ling Tian, nice!”
Meanwhile, the group of young geniuses of the Darkstone Dynasty praised excitedly in succession.
The young geniuses of the other Empires were influenced by this as well. “Who said that there aren’t experts amongst us who came from the Empires? The Darkstone Empire’s Duan Ling Tian used a single move to defeat the young expert of the Darkhan Dynasty that has become famous for many years, Ye Xiao!”
“Duan Ling Tian, you can do it! All of us that are similarly from the various Empires are proud of you!”
“Right, we’re proud of you! We hope you can aim your sword for first place!”
“Aim your sword for first!”
In the nine second-class spectating areas, the young geniuses of the various Empires were in an uproar.
Presently, amongst the six ninth level Void Initiation Stage young geniuses that stood in the sky above the Cage Battle Arena, only Duan Ling Tian came from an Empire and was a young genius recommended by an Empire.
In the eyes of the young geniuses of the various Empires, at this moment, Duan Ling Tian was representing the honor of all of the young geniuses from the various Empires.
In the sky above the Cage Battle Arena, Duan Ling Tian withdrew to the side.
“Brother Ling Tian, even though I was mentally prepared long ago that you’d be able to surpass me sooner or later… But never had I imagined that your strength has already surpassed me in the Dynasty Martial Competition today.” Zhang Shou Yong looked at Duan Ling Tian with a complicated gaze as he sighed via voice transmission.
“Big Brother Zhang, you don’t have to belittle yourself… Your Earth Concept is much stronger than the Concept I’ve comprehended, as it can already materialize.” Duan Ling Tian shook his head.
“So what if it can materialize? It’s still only a ninth level Elementary Concept. It’s fine if I’m facing someone with a strength that’s equal or inferior to me, but if I encounter a freak like you, just your speed already far surpasses me. So even if my Earth Concept can materialize, it won’t be of any effect to you.” Zhang Shou Yong spoke truthfully.
“No matter what, as things are now, besides Bai Hai who hasn’t fought, you’ll surely the first amongst the five of us to break through to the Void Interpretation Stage!” said Duan Ling Tian.
He was extremely confident of Zhang Shou Yong in this matter.
Once Zhang Shou Yong broke through to the Void Interpretation Stage, it would be sufficient for Zhang Shou Yong to easily crush all of them who hadn’t broken through to the Void Interpretation Stage.
“I hope so.” Zhang Shou Yong nodded.
“Next!” Meanwhile, the old man spoke out once more.
At this moment, no one made a move and the atmosphere became slightly strange.
Presently, the gazes of most people had descended onto the white colored figure in the sky above the Cage Battle Arena, and it wasn’t Zi Shang but Bai Hao.
Bai Hao was recommended by the Imperial Family and was the person that presided over the martial competition yesterday, and to most of the people present, he was covered in mysteriousness.
Up until now, only he hadn’t fought yet amongst the six young geniuses that were competing in the ranking battles for the top six.
The other five ninth level Void Initiation Stage young geniuses, including Duan Ling Tian, had now looked over at Bai Hao in unison as they awaited Bai Hao’s entrance into the arena.
Finally, under the gazes of everyone present, Bai Hao flashed out to arrive at the central area of the sky above the Cage Battle Arena.
“Bai Hao has entered the arena!”
“I wonder who he will choose to be his opponent.”
“We’ll know soon enough.”
Numerous gazes constantly stayed on Bai Hao.
In the end, Bai Hao chose his opponent, “Zhang Shou Yong!”
Zhang Shou Yong was stunned he heard himself being challenged by Bai Hao, and then he flashed out to stand in confrontation with Bai Hao. In his hand, the wine gourd appeared out of thin air before he started pouring wine down his throat.
After a short moment, Zhang Shou Yong put down the wine gourd and looked at Zhang Shou Yong with a serious expression.
Obviously, he realized that Bai Hao wasn’t simple.
“Even though Bai Hao attacked once yesterday, it was only briefly… But even in that brief moment, besides revealing a cultivation at the ninth level of the Void Initiation Stage, he also revealed a ninth level Fire Concept.” Duan Ling Tian’s gaze descended onto Bai Hao as his expression became slightly serious.
He kept having the feeling that when Bai Hao attacked yesterday, besides not utilizing a spirit weapon, Bai Hao might have still been holding back.
“Let’s begin.” Bai Hao spoke indifferently, whereas, at practically the instant he finished speaking, Zhang Shou Yong moved.
Zhang Shou Yong raised his right leg before fiercely stomping it out, smashing the enormous brick that appeared out of thin air beneath his feet into pieces before his entire body relied on this repulsive force to charge towards Bai Hao like a cannonball.
Everywhere Zhang Shou Yong passed, the howls of the wind resounded out as explosions of air rose and fell without end.
Under the gazes of everyone present, Zhang Shou Yong held tightly onto his wine gourd with a raise of his hand, and then he pulled his shoulders backwards, causing his entire body to seem like a heavy bow.
Along with Origin Energy blooming out from Zhang Shou Yong’s hand and gushing into the wine gourd, Earth Concept followed out like a shadow, causing the surface of the wine gourd to be covered in a layer of earthen yellow clothes.
“Ha!” As Zhang Shou Yong shouted out explosively, his body that had been pulled into a bow abruptly straightened out, and the wine gourd in his hand flew out with a swish, and it seemed to have transformed into an earthen yellow colored bolt of lightning that shot towards Bai Hao.
At the same time, Zhang Shou Yong flashed out and followed close behind the wine gourd.
In the sky, ancient horned dragon silhouettes condensed into form successively and dashed out along with Zhang Shou Ying, seeming to be telling everyone in the surroundings that he’d already exerted his full strength.
One wine gourd, one man, one ahead while the other behind, flashing towards Bai Hao.
Duan Ling Tian saw a seven foot long spear appear out of thin air in Bai Hao’s hand and flowing lightly revolved around the spear, causing one to know with a single glance that it wasn’t an ordinary spear.
“Grade three spirit weapon?” As a genuine grade three Weapons Craftsman, Duan Ling Tian recognized the grade of the spear in Bai Hao’s hand with a single glance.
“Flamecloud Spear!” Bai He’s pupils constricted, and his expression was slightly unsightly, as envy filled the depths of his gaze.
He was able to recognize that the grade three spirit weapon in Bai Hao’s hand was precisely the sole grade three spirit weapon possessed by the Darkhan Dynasty’s Imperial Family, and it was grasped in the hand of that existence of the Imperial Family.
Yesterday, he’s gone to see his father to ask his Imperial Father to assist him in borrowing this grade three spirit spear, yet he was refused by his Imperial Father.
Never had he imagined that the grade three spirit spear he was unable to borrow had appeared in Bai Hao’s possession today.
As far as he was concerned, if he possessed this grade three spirit spear to rely on today, then perhaps he didn’t have to be afraid of Zhang Shou Yong and Ye Xiao, and at the same time, he wouldn’t have lost at the hands of Zi Shang within a single move.
Why was this grade three spirit spear lent to Bai Hao, but not to me?
“Bai Hao uses spears?” When he saw Bai Hao maintaining a calm expression even when facing the wine gourd that approached menacingly, Duan Ling Tian’s expression became serious.
Finally, Bai Hao moved under Duan Ling Tian’s gaze.
Bai Hao held the spear with a single hand as Origin Energy skyrocketed on his body, and then strands of material red colored energy emerged from his body. When the red colored energy covered his Origin Energy, his Origin Energy shook abruptly before transforming completely crimson red.
For a time, Bai Hai and his spear were within a raging red colored sea of flames.
“Materialization of Concept again!” When he saw Bai Hao who was completely covered in the red colored flames not suffer the slightest bit of injury, the corners of Duan Ling Tian’s mouth couldn’t help but twitch.
Bai Hao’s Fire Concept had actually already touched the threshold of Intermediate Concept, and it wasn’t inferior to Zhang Shou Yong’s Earth Concept.
Finally, Bai Hao moved, he flashed out as if he was a large fireball that tore through the sky, and it caused the sky to be covered in a scorching aura that moved to directly intercept the enormous wine gourd that Zhang Shou Yong smashed out.
Suddenly, Bai Hao held the spear with both hands before raising it up above hit head.
In the next moment, an ear piercing howl of the wind sounded out instantly, and it was like thunder that reverberated in the ears of all.
Bai Had had swung down the spirit spear he raised up to smash towards Zhang Shou Yong, whereas, the spear in his hand seemed to have transformed into a rod at this moment.
The spirit spear in Bai Hao’s hand descended to fiercely smash onto the wine gourd that flashed directly towards him, and the scorching flames swept out to instantly collapse the material ‘earth’ on the surface of the wine gourd.
It wasn’t just that, after his spirit spear shattered the material Earth Concept on the surroundings of the wine gourd, it continued to descend onto the wine gourd, causing another enormous bang to sound out and the wine gourd was directly blasted flying.
The wine gourd that was blasted flying collided with Zhang Shou Yong who was following behind it, causing Zhang Shou Yong to be knocked flying.
“Pu!” Zhang Shou Yong was hit by the wine gourd without the slightest preparation, causing his face to go ghastly white as he spat out a mouthful of blood, and he was only capable of stopping his flying body after being knocked flying for a period of distance.
Bai Hao on the other hand, had already put away the grade three spirit spear in his hand, and the flames on his body died out along with this.
“You aren’t a match for me.” Bai Hao’s gazed calmly at Zhang Shou Yong as he spoke indifferently.
Zhang Shou Yong didn’t deny what Bai Hao said, and he withdrew to the side after putting away his wine gourd.
“Bai Hao is victorious!” Meanwhile, one of the old men recovered from his shock and announced the results, whereas, the Cage Battle Arena was filled with clamorous noise now.
“What happened earlier? The Imperial Family’s Bai Hao used that spirit spear as a rod, and with a swing of his rod, he blasted Zhang Shou Yong’s wine gourd flying?”
“Not only did he blast the wine gourd flying, he even injured Zhang Shou Yong.”
“I only saw the ancient horned dragon silhouettes that appeared in the sky when Zhang Shou Yong attacked… But I didn’t see it clearly when Bai Hao attacked.”
“I didn’t see it clearly either.”
