Yu Qing kept moving backward and accidentally fell onto the floor . She looked at the black shadow charging toward her fearfully . Only then did Yu Qing clearly see that it was a bear cub with brown fur . Only its neck area was light gray, vaguely glowing with a golden light .
Fourth-grade fiend—golden mane bear .
Yu Qing felt frightened . This is Mu Hongyu’s fiend? It is already very hard for an average person to get a third-grade fiend . Even people from the royal family might not have a fourth-grade fiend . Not only did Mu Hongyu have one, but it is even a cub .
Cubs were not as guarded against humans, and they were very easy to discipline . It seemed like this golden mane bear cub truly listened to Mu Hongyu .
Just when Yu Qing was petrified, Congcong had already pounced over and bit Yu Qing’s neck .
Fiends grew up very quickly . This golden mane bear cub was only a small ball of fur when they first discovered it, but it had already grown a lot in less than a month’s time . Even its claws and teeth were sharp .
The golden mane bear cub had a fourth-grade fiend’s bloodline, so it naturally had immense combat power . When Congcong sensed that Mu Hongyu was in danger, it was furious and naturally charged toward Yu Qing without a care in the world .
Its sharp jaws reflected a fearsome gleam .
Yu Qing’s entire person completely froze .
It would be dangerous if Congcong actually bit her neck .
Without thinking, Yu Qing raised her arm to stop the golden mane bear cub, planning to fling it away . However, this move did not leave any marks on the golden mane bear cub .
Congcong merely moved its body slowly and directly bit Yu Qing’s arm .
“No… Ah!” When Yu Qing saw the golden mane bear cub’s actions, she sensed that something was wrong and planned to retreat . However, it was too late .
The golden mane bear cub had already harshly bit her arm . Congcong’s sharp teeth directly pierced through her skin .
Blood spurted out .
The excruciating pain made Yu Qing’s face turn white . She instinctively used her strength and kicked the golden mane bear cub away .
Her clothes were torn, revealing her white arm . However, an entire piece of meat was ripped off her forearm .
The wound was so deep that one could see her bones .
Upon seeing her bloodied wound, Yu Qing almost fainted, and her heart trembled . This wound will definitely leave a scar!
When the golden mane bear cub was kicked into the air, Mu Hongyu hurriedly went forward to catch it, and she hugged it tightly .
After returning to a familiar embrace, the golden mane bear cub finally spat out the piece of meat . But Congcong still stared at Yu Qing ferociously, planning to charge at her at any time .
Chills were sent down Yu Qing’s spine when she saw its gaze . Her originally arrogant and delightful expression had completely disappeared; it was replaced with immense hatred and indignance .
She held her arm, and tears quickly welled up in her eyes as they fell down like rain . “Mu Hongyu, I have nothing against you! Why did you treat me like this?”
Her pitiful look immediately made people’s hearts ache .
But Mu Hongyu did not buy Yu Qing’s tactic as she sneered and said, “You should admit your defeat in a competition . I just treated you however you treated me . You’re very scheming and manipulative . How will it be so easy for you to win against me without using much effort?”
She touched the golden mane bear cub’s ears and smiled . “Is there a rule that says that I can’t summon my own fiend during the Qing Jiao Competition?”
Yu Qing was stumped and looked terrible .
Mu Hongyu was right; there was indeed no such rule . There were even times when the person with an advanced fiend would be the target of everyone’s envy . Thus, nobody could say that Mu Hongyu did a forbidden thing when she summoned her golden mane bear cub .
However… Yu Qing’s arm!
“You can’t fight anymore . Do you want to continue?” Mu Hongyu looked down at Yu Qing from above . “Congcong hasn’t played in a long while . Do you want it to accompany you?”
“No! No!” screamed Yu Qing as she widened her eyes in horror . If I continue, who knows what this beast will do to me? If it bites my face…
Many thoughts flashed across her mind . Yu Qing suppressed her anger, but she still looked pitiful . She choked on her tears and said, “I-I admit defeat!”
Originally, she was well prepared to get a good ranking in the Qing Jiao Competition . Hence, she decided to minimize her force wastage during the competition’s early stages . She wanted to save her force for the competition’s later stages .
However, she did not expect Mu Hongyu to come out of nowhere and directly cut her journey short . If she knew about this earlier, she would’ve ended the battle earlier on and not leave any chances for Mu Hongyu .
But it was too late now .
Mu Hongyu grumbled . This woman really knows how to attack and hide appropriately . She knows that she has no chance of winning, so she decisively admitted defeat . An extra look at this sort of scheming person will dirty my eyes .
“Congcong, let’s go!” Mu Hongyu then hugged Congcong and turned around to leave .
When she walked two steps out, a gentle yet strong voice suddenly sounded . “Ms . Mu, at the end of the day, this competition is for everyone to learn from each other and improve . It’s too overboard for you to be so harsh toward Yu Qing, right?”
Mu Hongyu followed the voice and looked over .
Situ Xingchen had stood up at some point . She looked calm, but her words had deep meaning . This move of hers immediately hushed the entire arena .
Everyone’s gazes gathered on her .
Mu Hongyu knitted her brows . “I’m overboard? Did you see that she was the one who played tricks first? I just retaliated . Can’t I do even that?”
Situ Xingchen gently smiled . “Ms . Mu, please don’t misunderstand . I’m just stating facts . Yu Qing was too bent on winning, so she used some tricks . However, this isn’t a major issue . After all, you weren’t exactly harmed, right? On the other hand, she… She’s a girl after all, so it’s not nice to leave such a scar on her arm . ”
Mu Hongyu found it ridiculous . “What has her having a scar got to do with me? We are comparing our abilities in this arena . Do you mean that I need to carefully consider if I will hurt her when I make a move? What’s the point of competing then? Everyone should just go home now . ”
Mu Hongyu was very straightforward and honest with her words, which made Situ Xingchen difficult to back away from the situation . However, she had always been on good terms with Yu Qing . If Situ Xingchen just let this slide, Yu Qing would’ve suffered for nothing .
The smile on Xingchen’s face faded . “However, if Yu Qing didn’t take the initiative to admit defeat just now… Ms . Mu, you looked like you were going to let the golden mane bear cub take her life . I believe everyone clearly saw that you had no intention of stopping it . So you should at least apologize to Yu Qing, Ms . Mu . ”
Mu Hongyu was so angry that her face flushed red . Why does Situ Xingchen make it sound like it’s my fault?
“Eldest Princess Situ, your words are a little too extreme . ” Chu Liuyue suddenly stood up and spoke in a seemingly smiling manner . “Hongyu was bent on winning, so she summoned her fiend . Even though she didn’t stop it in the end, it’s not a major matter . After all, Yu Qing has willingly admitted defeat, and Hongyu didn’t even cause any more severe injuries, right?”
“It’s hard to discipline golden mane bear cubs . When the cub saw that its owner was being attacked, its natural instinct was to fight for her life, yet it had to swallow this anger . I don’t think this is very good for its development, so shouldn’t Yu Qing apologize to Hongyu and the golden mane bear cub as well?”
