Dongfang Changjin sighed softly, "Rongyue of the Medicine Order is the person that I am most worried about. If the representative of the Medicine Order turns out to be her, you must concede no matter what! Nothing is more important than your lives. As long as you're alive, there's still a chance!"
Just as she spoke, the City Governor's voice could be heard from the front.
"In the second round of the competition, number one will go against number five, number two will go against number six, and number three shall go against number four!"
Hearing this, the insufferably smug Gu Ling suddenly began questioning.
"Are you kidding me? We're going against the Dark Yin Palace? Why didn't we get the Dongfang Family? If we go up against the Dongfang Family, our Gu Family will certainly win!"
The Dark Yin Palace, in the eyes of the secular world, were equally matched in power with the Medicine Order. But the powers of Zuo Shangchen of the Dark Yin Palace are shrouded in mystery. He has never allowed anyone to have any knowledge of his exact rank!
Hence, anyone who has gone against a member of the Dark Yin Palace will certainly die without question!
"How unfortunate," Zuo Shangchen lightly raised his lip. "I really was hoping to have a duel with the Dongfang Family members, especially my Xiao Yun'er."
If Gu Ruoyun was still here, she would certainly be fiercely cursing this showy little fox from the bottom of her heart.
Honestly, amongst all the participating organizations, she only feared Zuo Shangchen the most. This imp seems to have purposely concealed the true extent of his powers, even she could not sense a thing.
"Which one of you is going to participate this round?"
Dongfang Changjin looked at her team members and asked.
Everyone fell silent. No one uttered a single word.
They all wanted to fight the Medicine Order. Hence, no one was actually interested in facing number five — the Tianqing Order.
Right as Dongfang Changjin was spiraling into a particularly difficult situation, a young, tender voice said, "I'll go."
Hearing this, everyone turned their heads. Their gaze fell on the little lord's adorable face.
Bai Chuan bit his lip but his small face carried a maturity far beyond his years. His eyes sparkled with determination and the profound experience of a small adult.
"I want to try. May I?"
Dongfang Changjin was in a daze and knit her brows in confusion.
It's not that I don't have faith in Bai Chuan, but this guy only looks to be about ten or twelve years old at the very most, she thought. And the participants in the trials are ranked as low-level Martial Kings at the very least. If I let this kid go up there... Wouldn't that be equivalent to sending a lamb into a slaughterhouse?
"Let him go. When it comes to facing the Tianqing Order, Bai Chuan would have a better chance."
Wei Yiyi slowly chimed in as she glanced at Bai Chuan.
Actually, Gu Ruoyun had permitted Bai Chuan to join the competition for selfish reasons! Even though Bai Chuan's current level of strength wasn't exactly powerful, prior to this, Gu Ruoyun had given him a book of cultivation skills!
That book was not about gaining strength in power but about rapid cultivation!
Bai Chuan had always remained within the compound of the Devil Sect and has never had any experience in battle. So she had asked Wei Yiyi to bring Bai Chuan along to the Trials.
Dongfang Changjin sighed, "The Tianqing Order isn't very powerful but they still have a few expert cultivators in their ranks. You must be careful. If you're really unable to beat them, admit defeat. We'll regain our points in the subsequent battles."
Bai Chuan raised his twinkling eyes and smiled shyly, "Actually, even I don't know if I'll win but I'll do my best. I won't let you all down."
Then, he slowly walked into the arena under the gaze of the crowd.
Suddenly, a sharp-eyed observer caught a glimpse of Bai Chuan and burst out laughing. He laughed so hard that he cried and exclaimed exaggeratedly, "Am I looking at this right? The Dongfang Family is sending a little boy to the arena? Haha, have they lost all hope for victory?"
