Lulu’s grandfather, Lei Wang looked down upon the audience and he spoke without opening his mouth .
“Silvaria World Institute school activity, shall now begin!”
“These are the rules . ”
“There are no hard and fast rules on how to swing your sword, you can maim your opponent but killing is outright forbidden . Anyone who disobey this principle will lose not just his right of participation but lose access to Silvaria World Institute, forever . ”
“The matchup will be conducted randomly . The crystal ball shall decide the matchup from among the 100 particpants . Victor will proceed, loser will lose this round of tournament . ”
“The last 10 participants will get special prizes from the school board . The higher your rank, the better the reward . Try your best and improve by learning from each other . ”
“Some of you might be worried that you are going to go up against a strong opponent and it will affect your ranking . After this event, the ranks will be personally adjusted by me so don’t worry too much about it and just go all out . ”
A lot of the participants sighed in relief when they heard Lei Wang . They are going to feel so bad if they got matched up with a top 10 ranker and get sent to the bottom of the ranking .
Lei Wang smiled and with a wave of his hand a crystal ball appeared in front of him . The ball projected something into the sky . It’s a name list of the participants . Like a lucky draw machine, the names started jumbling around .
“let’s kick things off…”
The names started shifting around and his wave of hand actually intesified the speed of rotation . The participants started getting excited .
A lot of the students are secretly praying that they aren’t picked as a match for one of the top 10 rankers . It won’t look too good if they get knocked out so soon .
The result appeared after a brief while . Wu Yan looked at the result intently .
Lei Wang had an amusing look . He read out the result .
“First round, Wu Yan vs Qing Jing Hua! Would the contestants please proceed to the arena!”
Wu Yan pursed his lips . A cold and sharp gaze fell upon Wu Yan as he pondered whether it is good or bad luck that got him this first round .
He looked back and saw a delicate and pretty girl looking at him, or rather, leering at him . Wu Yan felt a bit confused .
Puzzled, he observed the girl and he silently wondered .
Did I do something to her? I wonder why she is glaring at me…”
Fei Fei saw the girl and she quickly filled in the blanks for Wu Yan, all while grinning in amusement .
Wu Yan asked her .
“Sister Fei Fei, are you familiar with that girl?”
“Of course, I am . ”
Fei Fei laughed and she threw Wu Yan a cheeky look .
“She’s your opponent, Qing Jing Hua . ”
Wu Yan isn’t surprised by this . No matter how he sliced it, she didn’t look like she’s enamored with him . Wu Yan didn’t need any other reason other than the fact that she is his opponent in the comoing match . He knew one thing, she’s very prejudiced against him as if she knew who he was .
Fei Fei laughed as she enjoyed Wu Yan’s confusion . She decided to spill the beans .
“Qing Jing Hua is a member of th eSea of Thick ice . Moreover, she’s the better half of Bing Ling, the leader of Sea of Thick Ice . ”
Wu Yan had a 囧 expression . His eyebrow jolted and his lips twitched at the thought of fighting the girlfriend of his enemy .
Bing Ling also frowned . He didn’t expect Qing Jing Hua to be matched against Wu Yan . This won’t end well…
Bing Ling knew how tought Wu Yan is after a round with him . He knew Qing Jing Hua had practically no chance of winning against Wu Yan .
Bing Ling turned towards Qing Jing Hua .
“Qing Jing Hua, if you can’t do it, just give up, there is no shame in doing so…”
Qing Jing Hua flinched, she lowered her head but she acquiesced anyway .
“I understand, Young Master Bing Ling…”
Bing Ling started getting anxious .
Qing Jing Hua is his better half, he knew she is just saying it without actually meaning it . If push comes to shove, she would not admit defeat .
Bing Ling sighed .
“Don’t force yourself, I would rather not see you get hurt . ”
Qing Jing Hua beamed up .
“I understand, Young Master, I am going to make sure I go all out and protect myself during the fight!”
Bing Mian curled his lips, he is very resentful and frustrated . Qing Jing Hua is about as strong as him so he knew she was no match for Wu Yan .
“Participants, take your positions!”
Lei Wang declared . Qing Jing Hua leapt up and she landed on the arena . Bing Ling smiled at her gallant appearance .
Wu Yan shook his head . He felt helpless he had to do this but an opponent is an opponent .
Wu Yan disappeared on the spot while re-appearing on the stage, having seemingly teleported there . Everybody cheered at his ridiculously fast footwork .
Qing Jing Hua turned grim . Wu Yan’s lean stature belied his terrible strength, she could feel a domineering aura coming from him . She reckoned she is not going to win without going all-out right at the start of the battle .
She flipped her hands and two morningstars that looked like Rare armament appeared . Just by swinging the weapon the arena shook and gale was generated .
Wu Yan wanted her to apologize for looking so cute while holding such deadly-looking weapons .
Qing Jing Hua raised an eyebrow at Wu Yan .
“Not taking out your armament?”
Wu Yan smiled . He got into a fighting stance while silently answering Qing Jing Hua .
Qing Jing Hua didn’t say anything more . She rushed Wu Yan with her morningstars in hands .
Wu Yan scanned her . He raised a finger and he snapped his finger . Suddenly, the space around the arena shifted .
Ripples expanded from behind Wu Yan, it’s like there’s a vertical lake that is perpendicular to the ground behind Wu Yan . The space turned into a reddish hue .
Black iron blades appeared from within the ripples . The swords appeared to be suspended in the air .
A rough calculation would show that there are thousands of swords, at least .
The crowd is stunned, the participants are stunned, Qing Jing Hua is stunned, only the directors of the school don’t look like they are fazed at all .
What is going on here!
