Just as she finished speaking, the noise of the crowd began to turn into voices of mockery.
Honestly, it would be impossible to count the number of geniuses in the mainland, the crowd thought in unison. And there would still be a lot of other greater geniuses to come. To claim that she was the number one in all of history is a little over the top. Besides, if Gu Tian and Dongfang Yu were pieces of trash, then who are we?
Hence, Xueyi was presently unaware of the fact that she had greatly offended a lot of people...
The young woman in white aimed a fierce attack towards Gu Ruoyun's chest. Gu Ruoyun raised her sword, blocking the attack just in time. Her body was forced backwards just from the sheer force of the movement.
"Gu Ruoyun, do you now understand what it truly means to be a genius?"
The mystery girl sneered. She raised her arrogant face to glare frostily at Gu Ruoyun, "In my presence, anyone can be considered a good-for-nothing. You are no different. What's so great about a nineteen-year-old low-level Martial Emperor? I'm much younger than you and so much more powerful. What right do you have to act with such arrogance?"
Bang, bang, bang!
Countless attacks pelted towards Gu Ruoyun completely without care. The aftermath of the blows revealed the woman in white's insane expression. Her eyes, red with bloodthirsty hatred, were absolutely terrifying.
"Go to hell! You go to hell!!!"
How could I not hate this woman? She fumed. It was she who had destroyed everything I had! If she does not die, I will never be able to get over this pit, not in this lifetime!
"Master, watch out!"
Wei Yiyi panicked, staring dead-on at the fight in the arena. She never expected for the Medicine Order to have hidden away such a strong cultivator!
Can my Master handle this? She wondered.
"Are you done?"
In the arena, a gentle breeze could be felt. Gu Ruoyun stood tall against the gentle breeze as she sent a clear, cool gaze towards the young woman in white, who was charging towards her in an attempt to attack once again. "If you are truly a high-level Martial Emperor, perhaps I would not have a chance to defeat you at all. However, you have merely used mystical means to force yourself into a breakthrough and to give the impression of an increase in your power. You have not truly reached this rank. Hence, it is far easier to deal with you than a true high-level Martial Emperor."
Utilizing mysticism to forcibly raise one's power was vastly different from an actual breakthrough.
The foundations in the former are unstable and the powers obtained from it will be superficial. Only a true breakthrough can truly provide one with all the powers that one would receive in that rank.
This was why Gu Ruoyun was not in the least bit worried.
"What did you say?"
The woman in white paused in her steps with a terrifyingly ugly look on her face. Then, she fiercely gritted her teeth and continued charging towards Gu Ruoyun.
"Gu Ruoyun, no matter what you say, it's useless! Today, you must die right here!"
As she watched the white figure whirling towards her, Gu Ruoyun slowly raised her sword. Instantly, the outline of a white pale dragon slowly appeared on its blade and charged towards the woman in white, opening it's mouth with a loud roar.
The dragon's roar was deafening, it was as if a great thunderstorm had exploded into her ears. But before she could make sense of the situation, the pale dragon swatted its tail and sent her flying into the air. Then, she landed on the ground with a loud crash!
Fresh blood flowed from the young woman's mouth. She raised her head and glared with furious hatred towards Gu Ruoyun, stubbornly unwilling to resign herself to defeat.
Gu Ruoyun waved her longsword once again and the pale dragon let out a loud roar. It breathed fire towards the woman in white's face, sending her unbearably delicate figure flying out out of the way.
The crowd gaped in shock and did not speak for a very long time.
Did she win?
Did she actually win? In the face of a high-level Martial Emperor? And... She'd won so easily?
"It seems that that white pale dragon was the very same one that she had once fought with," the Honorable Sir Tianqi gaped in astonishment.
So she had actually managed to tame that pale dragon, he mused. And it's become the weapon spirit of her spiritual weapon.
"This girl never ceases to amaze me." He muttered.
