This youthful advanced level pill refiner paled as his limbs turned icy. He was in disbelief as he crumpled to the ground. He pointed at Ji Anyun and roared, "You broke the rules! You broke my concentration!"
That was too much!
Everyone was speechless, even the people from the Butterfly School twitched their lips in exasperation.
To be honest, even they felt that he had gone overboard!
Pill refining is all about one’s abilities. If you failed this time, you just lost a round, not the whole world, is it necessary to break down like that?
Furthermore, you were the one who tried to distract others with your car crash like singing!
They just turned back and said that your singing was horrible, yet you have the audacity to scream at them?
Even though they were on different camps and were upset about losing, a loss was a loss!
Everyone could see that this young advanced level pill refiner lost this round because he crumbled after seeing the 64 exquisite pills refined by Ji Anyun.
After the Purple Cloud School people recovered from their shock, they exploded into catcalls.
Even though there weren’t many of them, they were all cultivators, and when they catcalled at the top of their lungs... it was a sight to behold.
The ones watching were not just people from the two schools, there were also people who came over to spectate the competition.
These were all neutral parties and they didn’t prefer one school over the other.
The youthful advanced level pill refiner from the Butterfly School was also too ungraceful in defeat.
As such, these people cheered with the Purple Cloud.
To be honest, there were some from the Butterfly School who wanted to cheer too, but they suppressed it.
What the hell was this? Really! Where did the school find such a piece of trash?
Hearing the cheers from his surroundings, the youthful advanced level pill refiner paled.
At this point, the Sky Dazed School student who was the judge for the day asked flatly, "Butterfly School representative, do you admit defeat?"
"I... admit defeat!"
This pale faced youth blushed and finally spat out the three words. Then, he turned and walked off the stage.
He could not possibly stay here any longer.
The lips of the student from the Sky Dazed School twitched and his eyes flashed with mockery.
If you can’t take the pressure, why bother being a hired representative? How shameful!
However, he couldn’t be bothered to say such a thing and immediately declared the Purple Cloud School as the victors.
"Purple Cloud School, one win, three points gained!"
Ji Anyun stood calmly on stage as she smiled at the people from the Purple Cloud before bounding off the stage
She came in front of Chu Yu, "Old Song, I didn’t embarrass you did I?"
Chu Yu smiled and nodded, "Good job!"
Ji Anyun smiled, then returned to her seat.
A group of Purple Cloud School students came over to congratulate her.
The first battle was a great head start.
Ji Anyun had given the Purple Cloud School an opening gift and this excited everyone.
Chu Yu smiled faintly. Even though he had predicted this before, he was still happy with the result.
He was probably even happier than when he defeated others.
The people from the Butterfly School left, their heads drooped.
This was their only match for the day.
The unranked schools competed based on total points.
Losing a single round was not the end of the world, but they weren’t happy about it.
e Purple Cloud School still had a battle challenge for the day.
They sent a youth, about 18-19 years old.
This youth bunned up his hair, and his eyes were clear and bright. He looked extremely delicate and he wore a green robe. After he went on stage, he stood there silently, awaiting his opponent.
At this point, the other school arrived.
It seemed like they didn’t really bother with this particular competition. Only seven or eight of them came, and they barely arrived on time.
Another 18-19 year old youth, wearing a black robe and radiating with a valiant aura, took to the stage.
This competition’s judge was also a student from the Sky Dazed School.
He looked at both parties and said, "The competition is a friendly one. Learning is the most important thing here. If you fall off the stage or are unable to retaliate, you will be given a loss. You can use weapons during battle, but try to avoid lethal strikes. However, the blade is blind, so be prepared to bear the consequences once you come on stage!"
As he spoke, he glanced at the two teens, "Are... you both ready?"
Both of them nodded.
No one really bothered with a competition between two unranked schools.
However, there were more people spectating this round as compared to the pill refining round.
There were more than a thousand spectators.
Some of them were even recording the battle using memory crystals.
There were many cultivators in the Mirror World who could not make it for the championship.
As such, such a broadcast was well received.
However, for a competition like this, those who watched were generally people from both schools.
However, they still made up a significant number.
The Purple Cloud School’s youth cupped his fist, then prepared for battle.
His opponent did the same.
Then, they started to battle.
The two youths were King’s Realm cultivators.
They were equally matched. After a few rounds of testing each other out, they retrieved their best weapons.
They wanted to end the battle quickly.
The opponent offered up a black string.
He bellowed, "Restrain!"
Everyone thought that this was a restraining string, especially since the youth had yelled restrain.
They did not expect that the string would become like an arrow after it was released!
It was like a thrown spear!
It immediately flew towards the Purple Cloud Youth’s forehead.
"This is too despicable..."
The last statement was said by Chu Yu.
The Purple Cloud School’s youth had a blue shield appear in front of him, then... he threw a pill at his opponent.
"What is that? Why does it look like a pill?"
"Pill? What is that for?"
"Is he trying to gift his opponent a pill?"
"Has he been scared sh*tless... and thought that was a magical equipment?"
Everyone on scene and watching the broadcast were all lost.
At this point, a loud explosion rang out.
The opponent was immediately sent flying.
The spear, which was suddenly not controlled, fell to the ground with a clang.
The Purple Cloud School youth’s defensive screen also disappeared. He stood quietly, slightly ashamed.
Since he had sent his opponent flying off the stage, he was victorious.
The judge immediately announced a Purple Cloud School victory.
The Purple Cloud School cheered enthusiastically.
They had gotten two victories for a total of six points.
This was a pretty good result.
All of a sudden, a furious voice was heard, "This is cheating!"
Everyone’s gaze fell on that youth. His face was charred from the explosion and his clothes were also shredded by the blast.
He was also bleeding from multiple places.
Chu Yu had already weakened the Explosive Pill to the lowest power.
He even split them into levels. There were those for King’s Realm cultivators, as well as those for Supreme Realm cultivators.
After all, this was a competition, not a killing contest.
If they blasted their opponents to death, even if the Purple Cloud School could become a superior school, they will be annihilated soon after.
The Sky Dazed School student, who was the judge for that round, asked icily, "Are you questioning the fairness of the competition?"
The youth who had been blasted was speechless. No matter how unwilling he was, he had to accept this fact.
He had been defeated!
How could he use underhand tactics and blame others for doing the same?
He was just extremely unwilling to accept the fact that he had lost. Furthermore, he did not know what his opponent did, thus, he shouted in frustration and angst.
Now that he had calmed down, he could only admit depressingly, "I’ve lost..."
For the first day, the Purple Cloud School had won both their rounds!
Even though the Purple Cloud School had gotten such a result before, this was the first time they got it with such ease!
After the competition, this round of competition made waves on the internet.
There was quite a discussion going on about what exactly the Purple Cloud School student threw.
Many of them played back the recording on their memory crystals and magnified the item to it’s maximum. They all thought that it was a pill.
"There are pill inscriptions!"
"Who amongst us has seen an exploding pill?"
"That’s bullsh*t, how can pills explode? That must be some equipment or product!"
Many people carried on discussing, but the Purple Cloud remained silent on this matter.
This was their secret weapon!
The Purple Cloud School strategy was for the Pill Refining Section to get all the points whilst the Battle Section just did their best!
If they could breeze through this competition and let the pill refining section enter the main competition, that was all they wished for.
After all, even with the Explosive Pill, there were too many schools and there would be one or two extremely talented individuals. When facing those people, victory could not be guaranteed.
Xu Xiaoxian followed Chu Yu back to the Purple Cloud School’s residence. She did not return to her room, opting to come to Chu Yu’s room.
She looked at Chu Yu, "It looks like I underestimated you, a saint’s technique... is really powerful. But, aren’t you afraid that people may devise a defence against it with you showing it so early?"
Chu Yu glanced at her, "There isn’t any saint technique."
"How uninteresting." Xu Xiaoxian sat on the chair, her legs crossed as she looked at Chu Yu seriously, "In order to be a dark horse and shine in this competition, you must not be too soft!"
"What do you mean?" Chu Yu glanced at her.
"If I didn’t guess wrongly, the pills you gave to those students are weakened versions. A true Explosive Pill is not like that. A real Explosive Pill is an attack pill that can seriously injure a True Lord cultivator."
Xu Xiaoxian looked at Chu Yu calmly, "Even if you don’t refine something that powerful and continue with your compassionate methods... you will be countered one day. And they will use a more powerful technique to completely smash your students!"
Chu Yu frowned and glanced at Xu Xiaoxian.
"Then, you all will get the short end of the stick. So, you better raise its power level." Xu Xiaoxian said seriously.
