Dragon-Marked War God - Chapter 92
Chapter 92 - Yi Qing Zi Admits Defeat
When Jiang Chen stabbed his long sword into Ling Ao's chest, the entire square turned silent. Everyone in the square had their eyes wide opened as they held their breaths, it was as if they couldn't believe what they had just seen.
After that, the storm arrived.
’’Oh my god, what did I just see? He killed Ling Ao, he really killed Ling Ao!’’
’’What a daring man! Nan Bei Chao even shouted at him, telling him to stop, but he still killed Ling Ao! He didn't even give Ling Ao the chance to surrender! This is madness!’’
’’Too cruel! I have grown this old, and I've finally witnessed a true ruthless man! He has my respect!’’
’’Exciting! The Burning Sky Pavilion's outer circle disciple representative was killed on the fighting stage! This is a big loss for the Burning Sky Pavilion! But, there's nothing wrong with what Jiang Chen just did. Earlier, Ling Ao was fighting with the intention to kill, he wouldn't have let Jiang Chen live if their positions were reversed. Since he tried killing Jiang Chen, can't Jiang Chen try to kill him back? This is a fighting stage of life and death, once you enter, you will be putting your life at stake. Besides, Jiang Chen had already offended Nan Bei Chao, and with Nan Bei Chao's personality, he wouldn't have forgiven Jiang Chen anyway. Therefore, whether he killed Ling Ao or not, Jiang Chen couldn't have changed his destiny. He had the courage to kill Ling Ao, he has really won my respect!’’
The square started boiling, this scene was just too exciting. The number one genius of the outer circle disciples from the Burning Sky Pavilion was killed, this was such a sensational moment.
Right at this moment, the way everyone looked at Jiang Chen changed once again. Aside from the newfound respect, there was also fear. This was an incredibly ruthless man.
Standing next to the fighting stage, Han Yan, Li Wu Shuang, and Yi Qing Zi's expressions had changed. They had all placed Jiang Chen high in their minds, especially Han Yan who had a feeling that Jiang Chen could fight on equal grounds with Ling Ao. But, never had they expected that Jiang Chen would kill Ling Ao in such a cruel and resolute manner.
’’This guy... Just what background does he have?’’
Han Yan had a bitter smile on his face. Now he had finally seen the real Jiang Chen. He couldn't help but recall what happened in the Silver Moon Restaurant. Looking back at the scene from before, even if he didn't help Jiang Chen that day, Jiang Chen would've been able to save himself.
Of course, if the Little Devil King knew what Jiang Chen had done to Silver Moon City after he left, he might have started coughing out blood.
On the other side, Big Yellow was walking around with pride and whistling towards those who had placed their bets. All of them had darkened faces now, wishing they could hang Big Yellow and skin him.
’’What's there to be so happy about? The competition isn't over yet, he only killed Ling Ao!’’
’’That's right, Ling Ao isn't on the same level as the Little Devil King and Li Wu Shuang, what's there to be so happy about you dead dog! Later, when that kid loses, you'll have to spit out all of your Mortal Restoration Pills!’’
The crowds spoke in a fierce manner.
’’Really? Since you are all so confident, let's have another bet! This time we'll bet with a 1 to 100 ratio!’’
Big Yellow showed an ugly smile to the crowd as he said, ’’Who wants to bet? Hurry up and place your bets now! 1 to 100 ratio! You won't get any chances like this in the future!’’
Yan Chen Yu who stood aside kept laughing, this evil-minded dog was just too shameless.
But too bad, this time, no matter how hard Big Yellow tried pushing, nobody was willing to fall for his schemes anymore. Not everybody were fools, when they witnessed Jiang Chen's abilities, they lost all confidence in betting. Even Ling Ao was killed, so it's hard to tell if the Little Devil King and Li Wu Shuang were capable of defeating Jiang Chen.
They couldn't be fooled by this dog anymore. Not to mention the 1 to 100 ratio, even if it was a 1 to 1000 ratio, they wouldn't place any bets at all. This dog was just too insidious.
On the fighting stage, Ling Ao was completely breathless. Jiang Chen slowly drew out his sword, and Ling Ao's dead body fell down from the fighting stage. A generation's genius had ended his journey here.
Nan Bei Chao's face turned pale from the anger. His face twisted and he openly unleashed his killing intent towards Jiang Chen.
’’When I said stop, did you not hear my words?! How dare you disobey my order?!’’
Nan Bei Chao's voice was so cold that it could send shivers down one's spine. Everyone could tell that this rare genius who only appears once every century was completely pissed off. Just now, right before Jiang Chen killed Ling Ao, Nan Bei Chao had shouted at him, telling him to stop.
Jiang Chen slowly swung his sword to get rid of the blood smeared on it. He stared back at Nan Bei Chao without any fear and said, ’’Why should I listen to you? Can you change the rules of this competition? Ling Ao never surrendered, so according to the rules, I am allowed to kill him. Does this have anything to do with you?’’
What Jiang Chen said had made Nan Bei Chao speechless. That's right, although he was the most important person amongst those who were hosting this competition, he still couldn't change the rules or interrupt anything. Ling Ao didn't surrender, therefore, Jiang Chen had a valid reason to kill him.
’’Jiang Chen is right, Nan Bei Chao. The Qi Province competition is open and fair to everyone, you have no right to stop Jiang Chen from killing Ling Ao.’’
Guan Yi Yun opened his mouth and said. Although he wasn't a match for Nan Bei Chao, as the representative of the Black Sect, he still had the guts to say this much.
’’Fine, let the competition continue.’’
Nan Bei Chao said with an indifferent expression. He didn't even take a second look at Jiang Chen, but everyone could tell that Nan Bei Chao was really furious at the moment. After the competition, he would surely try to get his revenge against Jiang Chen.
Jiang Chen turned around and jumped off the fighting stage. A disciple from the Burning Sky Pavilion ran to the fighting stage and carried Ling Ao's dead body away. When this disciple left the fighting stage, he gazed at Jiang Chen with eyes filled with fear.
Today, the Burning Sky Pavilion had suffered great losses. Ling Ao was a gifted talent, and he would soon be able to break through to the Heavenly Core realm and be promoted to an inner circle disciple. Although he might not be able to achieve something big like Nan Bei Chao, he could at least be someone really important within his sect, someone whom those ordinary geniuses couldn't compare with. Without being rude, ten Late Mortal Core geniuses wouldn't be as important to the Burning Sky Pavilion as Ling Ao.
When the battle reached its current state, it was considered the highlight of the competition. Those ordinary geniuses had been eliminated, and what was left now was the best amongst the best, geniuses amongst all geniuses.
Below the fighting stages, there were only four persons left. Jiang Chen, Han Yan, Li Wu Shuang and Yi Qing Zi.
This lineup really made people excited. At the same time, it also made people let out a sigh. According to everyone's estimations, those who were supposed to be standing here right now was Ling Ao and the other three. However, Ling Ao was already dead, and he was replaced by a dark horse. To the four big sects, this was a huge blow in their faces.
’’Draw your plate.’’
Nan Bei Chao waved his hand and threw out another four wooden plates. On top of them, 'One and 'Two' were written. The four of them casually grabbed a plate. Jiang Chen turned his plate around, and on top of it was a 'One'.
Two figures simultaneously jumped onto the first fighting stage, these two were Jiang Chen who was dressed in white, and Yi Qing Zi who was wearing clothing that barely covered her body. Yi Qing Zi was seductive, and everyone single one of her movements was enough to scratch one's heart.
Jiang Chen and Yi Qing Zi drew the same number, so naturally, the Little Devil King and Li Wu Shuang who had been enemies for a long time drew the same. They stood on top of the second fighting stage now.
’’Something exciting is going to happen, none of these four are easy to deal with! Especially the Little Devil King and Li Wu Shuang, both of them have really strong and powerful tricks hidden up their sleeves, this is so exciting!’’
Everyone was really excited. Many people had come here to watch the Little Devil King and Li Wu Shuang, and now they were finally going to fight each other. This would be a fight between a dragon and a tiger.
’’Who do you guys think will win?’’
’’The Little Devil King and Li Wu Shuang both have their own abilities, it is hard to say who will win... But that slut Yi Qing Zi will not be Jiang Chen's match! At most, Yi Qing Zi is at the same level as Ling Ao, and Jiang Chen killed Ling Ao without much effort. I'm sure he'll be able to kill Yi Qing Zi as well!’’
’’It's hard to tell, the Valley of Happiness' Seduction Skill is unparalleled in this world! There's an old saying that heroes are always attracted to beauties, and Yi Qing Zi's Seduction Skill and her ability to confuse is not something that ordinary men can resist!’’
Discussions could be heard everywhere. It wasn't until now that the true highlight of the Qi Province competition would begin. The battle between the four strongest geniuses. A battle that could make the spectators so anxious that they had to hold their breaths.
On the first fighting stage, Yi Qing Zi stood opposite of Jiang Chen. Her body was soft and curvy, as if there were almost no visible bones inside her body. A pair of seductive eyes checked out Jiang Chen, she scanned his body from bottom to the top. After a while, Yi Qing Zi couldn't help but let out a sigh. She then told Jiang Chen, ’’Brother Jiang has some really good abilities, Yi Qing Zi really respects that! I surrender!’’
Yi Qing Zi admitted defeat straight away even before the fight had begun. What had just happened? Everyone was startled.
’’What's wrong? How come Yi Qing Zi admitted defeat straight away? She hasn't even moved her hands?’’
’’What kind of magical powers does this Jiang Chen have? Even the genius from the Valley of Happiness admitted defeat straight away!’’
Another turmoil appeared in the square. Many of the people couldn't understand the reason behind Yi Qing Zi's surrender. Even if Yi Qing Zi was weak, she shouldn't have surrendered before the fight begun.
Jiang Chen cupped his first towards Yi Qing Zi with a slight smile on his face. Others had no idea why Yi Qing Zi surrendered, but he did.
Yi Qing Zi didn't admit defeat before trying to fight. When she landed on the fighting stage, she had immediately applied her Seduction Skill on Jiang Chen and tried to confuse him. But, she had never expected that her Seduction skill would have no effect on Jiang Chen. Jiang Chen's mental capacity is beyond her imagination.
And this was the real reason why Yi Qing Zi had admitted defeat. Her actual combat strength was almost the same as Ling Ao's, and the only thing she could depend on to win this fight was her Seduction Skill. If her Seduction Skill was useless, then there would be no reason for her to try fighting.
Besides, Yi Qing Zi had already witnessed Jiang Chen's approach. He was not someone who would show mercy just because she was a girl. If he had killed her in the fight, it wouldn't be worthwhile.
’’Hehe, brother Jiang is a really special man! If you have time in the future, please come to the Valley of Happiness and look for your little sister! No matter what your request is, little sister will fulfill it!’’
[TL: She refers to herself as little sister]
Yi Qing Zi laughed and jumped off the fighting stage. Her words were meant to openly seduce Jiang Chen.
She surrendered so casually, she was even happy and didn't mind it at all. Perhaps only those from the Valley of Happiness were able to do this.
Jiang Chen never took a second glance at Yi Qing Zi. She was just another low class woman, he never looked at one more than once. Compared to Yan Chen Yu, these women from the Valley of Happiness are just some wild chickens.
’’Damn it, don't tell me that Jiang Chen is really going for number one?! I just bet another 200 Mortal Restoration Pills... Damn it, I was really fooled by this damned dog!’’
’’I think Jiang Chen has at least an 80% chance of winning the next round! In the fight between the Little Devil King and Li Wu Shuang, both of them will end up wounded for sure, and no matter who wins, his combat strength will be reduced by a lot, then he won't be a match against Jiang Chen who is still at his strongest!’’
’’Damn it! I was fooled by that damned dog! I hope something unexpected happens, if not, I'll suffer a great loss!’’
All of those who had bet felt really upset and wished to knock their heads on the floor.
