Translator: Misty Cloud Translations Editor: Misty Cloud Translations
Nothing much happened in the days that followed. She thought that the Region Competition would be delayed with what had happened with the Princess Consort, however, to Sima You Yue’s surprise, not only was it not postponed, the people who were arrested at the Region Competition last time had turned up.
“Father, they are?”
Murong Hui saw the people she was referring to and understood what she meant. He said: “They are resources. The Prince made them choose between death and allegiance, and they made a wise choice.”
Sima You Yue understood, they had to swear their allegiance to the kingdom so that they could survive.
In the last round of promotion, there were one hundred and fifty two people. Although the numbers were much smaller, the competition was even more exciting.
Before the games started, the Prince of Great Yu and the Second Prince walked in.
Although everyone didn’t know about the turmoil at the time, the news of it still spread later on. Therefore, no one was surprised at the Prince and Second Prince’s good health. They were just curious about who had healed them.
The Prince stood on the podium and spoke to the competitors below: “Everyone here is an elite who has been selected by thousands of people. The loss of one person is a huge loss. Therefore, from today onwards, the rules of the game will be changed, you will stop and not take each other’s lives.
Everyone understood that the previous rules were changed by the Princess Consort. Now that the matters regarding the Princess Consort had been resolved, naturally, the rules would be changed back. It was just a pity for those who had died.
Sima You Yue and Fang Ying Han went to draw their numbers together and then they went to register their numbers with the umpires.
“Murong Xi.” A man dressed in black stood beside her. When he saw her number, he said: “I look forward to our competition.”
Sima You Yue raised her head and looked at him: “You Tian Ran, are we in the same group?”
“Yes.” You Tian Ran took out his number which was the same as Sima You Yue’s number, seventy.
“I look forward to getting advice from you.” Sima You Yue smiled at him, then she left with Zhang Ming Da and the others.
“I didn’t expect Young Miss’ opponent to be You Tian Ran.” Zhang Ming Da said and looked back at him, then he whispered to Sima You Yue: “Young Miss, I heard that You Tian Ran is very powerful!”
“Yes, he is at the middle stage of the Underworld Saint.” Sima You Yue said, “There are seven mid-level Underworld Saint people. I didn’t expect to be so lucky to run into him so soon?”
“Young Miss, he’s staring at you, he seems to be very interested in you.” Fang Ying Han said.
“That’s normal.” Zhang Ming Da said, “Who isn’t curious about Young Miss now? They all probably want to see Young Miss’ strength!”
“Yes, not only them, we are also curious!”
“That’s right Young Miss. Why don’t you tell us where you get your strength from?” Zhang Ming Da asked cheerfully.
“What’s there to tell, you can see for yourselves when the time comes!” Sima You Yue hadn’t planned on explaining to them anyway. If she told them now, there would be no mystery left.
Besides, what if she scared them and they did badly in their competition as a result?
Zhang Ming Da looked at Sima You Yue and his lips curled up. He complained in a low voice: “Young Miss is not fun.”
Sima You Yue smiled at him, even if she refused to tell them, what could they do to her, beat her?
Zhang Ming Da was heartbroken, could he? Of course not! Therefore, he felt even more heartbroken.
Very soon, the first batch of competitors entered the Realm. There were only sixty competitors in each round now, and there were thirty rounds. Sima You Yue watched the first group of people compete, and without the Princess Consort’s monopoly, the game was much milder.
However, it was also more exciting.
It seemed that the Region Competition had only just started properly now.
Sima You Yue watched each group of competitors carefully as some of them might be her opponents next time. Although she was confident in her own abilities, she preferred to know her enemy well.
An hour later, the first thirty groups had finished competing, and the next thirty groups were next. Fang Ying Han and Zhang Ming Da were in this group. Regrettably, neither of them were promoted to the next round.
Now, all of Vast Region’s hopes were pinned on Sima You Yue alone.
When Fang Ying Han and Zhang Ming Da came back, they both acted a little strangely.
“If it had been Zi Ping he would have been promoted to the next round. But he didn’t get the chance.” Zhang Ming Da said reproachfully.
“It doesn’t matter, you have already tried your best.” Murong Hui said, “This result is much better than the previous years.”
“You encountered Underworld Saints as opponents, you just have to work harder in the future.” Sima You Yue comforted them.
“Although we have been eliminated, this is much better than what we expected before we came here.” Zhang Ming Da said, “We will be able to see Young Miss compete in a while. I am really looking forward to it!”
Sima You Yue glanced at him, this guy’s mood changed so quickly!
About an hour later, the second round of games was over. The remaining sixteen groups entered the Realm of Emptiness after they had received their talisman.
Because the number of competitors was half of what it had been before, everyone had a better view of the games.
After You Tian Ran entered the Realm of Emptiness, he flew into midair and waited for Sima You Yue. When he saw Sima You Yue walk in, he waved his hand and said: “I know you can fly.”
Sima You Yue smiled and lifted herself up on her toes, then she flew into the air to face You Tian Ran.
“I guessed right!” You Tian Ran said, “Young Miss Murong, please.”
When Sima You Yue saw that he hadn’t called his contract beast out, she didn’t call Onyx out either. The two of them confronted each other with their underworld skills.
The spectators were surprised that she hadn’t called out Onyx, they thought that she was going to use Onyx right till the end!
“Look at the speed of her underworld skills! Her underworld skills seem to follow one after another!” This was the first time everyone had seen her use underworld skills and they were amazed by her speed.
“Look at her underworld skills, they are not of an ordinary grade!”
“You Tian Ran is a middle stage of Underworld Saint and she hasn’t even conceded a move yet. It seems that she really has strength and she doesn’t only rely on her contract beasts!”
When Sima You Yue was in the Realm of Emptiness, she was unable to hear the discussion that was going on outside. However, she could guess what their expressions would be when they saw her using her underworld skills.
You Tian Ran’s strength was indeed not low, his underworld skills were faster than that of ordinary people too. She was able to match his strength without exposing more strength, and the gap between their strength was not much. Later on, when there was a gap between their exchange of blows, she teleported and appeared directly behind You Tian Ran. She ended the game when she placed her long sword on his shoulder.
You Tian Ran hadn’t used up all of his underworld skills and he felt a little unwilling to give up as he felt the cold temperature of the long sword. However, he dissipated his spiritual energy and said: “I’ve lost.”
Sima You Yue withdrew her long sword and said: “You let me win.”
You Tian Ran turned around and saluted to Sima You Yue: “Your talents are truly hidden. To be honest, your strength is far more than that, isn’t it?”
