The whole square was dead silent.
Nobody would’ve ever expected Jiang Yuan and Chu Liuyue’s battle to get to this stage.
Chu Liuyue actually managed to break apart Jiang Yuan’s forceful attack! Chu Liuyue seemed like she was about to be defeated, but everything changed in the blink of an eye!
Not only was she not defeated, but she even managed to injure Jiang Yuan severely! Even though she was not in a very good state herself, she managed to turn the highly skewed match into one where they were on equal footing!
Even though both sides were hurt, Chu Liuyue was clearly in a superior position!
Everyone was dumbfounded.
Bearing the pain, Chu Liuyue got up slowly. She swallowed all the blood back down and looked at her palm. Her right palm—which had been holding the dagger—had frostbite from the ice ball. In addition, her palm was bloodied when she forcefully removed the dagger earlier.
Her crimson blood slowly froze into ice crystals—which would fall to the ground if touched.
Chu Liuyue looked up and stared ahead.
Jiang Yuan had just managed to catch his breath. He met Chu Liuyue’s gaze, and his heart trembled!
Chu Liuyue’s usually clear and bright eyes were burning with crazed passion. She was injured all over, but she did not seem to care about it. There was only one thought in her heart—To win!
Jiang Yuan’s insides were churning. He watched everything clearly and carefully when Chu Liuyue battled Lei Mingwei yesterday. He thought that he knew her well, but he had still underestimated her willpower!
When the Ghostly Eye Heavenly Ice exploded, Chu Liuyue was right next to it. The force flung her away, and Jiang Yuan believed that her injuries were not much better than his.
Her right hand was frostbitten, so it clearly could not be used anymore. But her eyes were cold and determined as if she did not feel pain.
Is this really a fourteen-year-old young lady?! Chu Liuyue’s determination astonished him.
“Do you want to continue?” Jiang Yuan asked as he glanced at Chu Liuyue’s right hand.
Without batting an eyelid, Chu Liuyue switched the dagger over to her left hand and gripped it slowly. “Why not? I haven’t won, so we obviously have to continue!”
Jiang Yuan took a deep breath. “In that case… take this!”
He began to circulate the force around his body before he finished his sentence! He opened his palm, and the green force quickly gathered and formed a spear!
The spearhead was extremely sharp and pointy!
After forming the spear, he moved and headed straight for Chu Liuyue!
Chu Liuyue’s gaze turned cold, and she steeled herself to attack!
Over at Tian Lu Academy’s area, the people’s hearts were back in their throats—before they could even relax—when they saw Jiang Yuan strike again.
Mu Hongyu could not help but mutter, “Oh no! Jiang Yuan’s forte is actually the spear? Won’t Liuyue be at a disadvantage then?”
Cen Hu widened his eyes. “That might not be the case. Liuyue is really strong!”
Mu Hongyu was worried and anxious. “But she’s already injured, and she can only use her left hand now! Jiang Yuan’s clearly not easy to deal with! Liuyue is pushing herself too hard!”
Cen Hu asked, “If it were you, would you concede now?”
Mu Hongyu took a deep breath. Of course not. Liuyue definitely won’t concede then.
The two clashed!
When Jiang Yuan’s spear struck, Chu Liuyue moved her waist and managed to dodge the attack just like that!
Her left hand then struck and hit the spear at an eerie angle!
The spear was surprisingly strong, so Chu Liuyue’s attack did not manage to sever it!
The spear bent and bounced back with an incredible amount of force!
Chu Liuyue’s wrist trembled and was flicked away as she stumbled backward!
Jiang Yuan pushed on and thrust the spear toward Chu Liuyue’s left shoulder!
Chu Liuyue’s right hand was basically useless now, so the match would be over once she lost the ability to attack with her left arm.
Chu Liuyue placed the dagger in front of her to block!
The clashing weapons made a noise similar to nails on a chalkboard!
Chu Liuyue gritted her teeth. She raised her arm and scratched the spear’s body with her dagger.
Sparks flew everywhere!
Jiang Yuan was surprised. Looking at the speed and force in which she retaliated, Chu Liuyue clearly understands spears well! But there was no hint of that at all… Chu Liuyue is good at concealing herself!
“I didn’t expect you to be so familiar with spears as well, but I’m taking this match!” As Jiang Yuan spoke, he infused all that remained of his force into the spear!
“King of Ten Thousand Spears!”
The spear shook violently.
In the next instant, countless spears appeared around it!
Chu Liuyue’s heart sank! This is Jiang Yuan’s true trump card! I could break apart the Ghostly Eye Heavenly Ice earlier, but now I’m in danger!
The spears were not illusions; they were made of Jiang Yuan’s force! Most importantly, their strength was not any weaker than the one in his hand!
“Go!” Jiang Yuan cried out as he tossed the spear.
At the same time, the surrounding spear images flew towards Chu Liuyue.
In an instant, Chu Liuyue was completely surrounded!
Fu Yunshan nodded contentedly. “Jiang Yuan has grown again. He can even summon six spear images now. Even though he’s hurt, and his strength has decreased, it’s enough to take down Chu Liuyue.”
He had always had high hopes for Jiang Yuan. Looking at it, Jiang Yuan would not disappoint.
Everyone in Nan Feng Academy was relieved when they heard Fu Yunshan’s words, and happy expressions appeared on their faces.
“Jiang Yuan pulled all of this off even though he’s just a beginner stage-four warrior. If he weren’t injured, he could probably be compared to an advanced stage-four warrior!”
“That Chu Liuyue is quite hard to deal with… But she’s nothing in comparison to Jiang Yuan.”
“Actually, I feel that she’s not that strong. It’s all just because of that dagger. Now that Jiang Yuan is using all his energy, she’s not his match at all. How could she possibly break those six spear images…”
The person speaking stared blankly at the arena as if they had choked.
“What’s wrong? What are you looking—” The person next to him looked up impatiently when he realized his friend had stopped speaking. However, he was also stunned!
In the area, all the spear images surrounding Chu Liuyue had stopped!
They all froze half an arm’s length before her!
One more step forward, and they would hit Chu Liuyue easily! But it was like there was an invisible barrier blocking everything outside!
Someone cried out, “It-it’s a Xuan formation!”
Everyone looked over when they heard it and saw silver rays of light interwoven around Chu Liuyue to form a large barrier that blocked off all the attacks.
“She’s a Xuan Master!”
