Chapter 921: Accompany Her
Zhao Zicheng actually admitted defeat just like that! The moment he said it, the surrounding crowd revealed conflicted expressions.
Actually, they had already predicted this ending when they saw the previous scene.
Zhao Zicheng clearly had no more combat power. If he continued dragging it, he had no chances of winning.
He was covered in injuries, but on the other hand, Rong Xiu didn’t even move an inch from start to end. In the entire match, the latter just raised a hand and casually drew two strokes!
There was no need to continue battling.
Zhao Zicheng should admit defeat at this point, but… Who would’ve expected such an ending 15 minutes ago?
Zhao Zicheng was an eighth-grade Xuan Master!
“Elder Chen Ke, did you see it clearly just now? That… Is it a Xuan formation?” The few royal family elders standing at the side couldn’t help but ask softly.
Elder Chen Ke knitted his brows tightly and took a deep breath in. “That is a Xuan formation!”
Upon hearing this, the few elders exchanged glances. “But what kind of Xuan formation behaves in that manner? Only two forces intertwined… How can it break an eighth-grade Xuan formation so easily?”
However, Elder Chen Ke stared at Rong Xiu closely and didn’t explain further. Why… What else can it be? It is naturally because the ‘cross’ formation Rong Xiu executed was much stronger than Zhao Zicheng’s!
Normally speaking, the higher one’s Xuan Master level, the more control one had over their force. In this kind of situation, the more complicated the Xuan formations were, the greater the power.
This was also the reason the crowd was confused over Rong Xiu’s victory.
To a normal person, his item definitely couldn’t be counted as a Xuan formation. However, it clearly encompassed a stronger suppression than an eighth-grade Xuan formation as it managed to destroy it!
Elder Chen Ke vaguely recalled that there were rumors about how a top Xuan Master could simplify complicated Xuan formations into minimalist drawings and have them encompass terrifyingly strong suppression!
Could Rong Xiu… be like this?! But those that can reach such a level are all…
“Where did this Rong Xiu come from?” Elder Chen Ke couldn’t help but ask.
“He is Country Yao Chen’s Seventh Prince and Yue’er’s fiancé.” At this point, Shangguan You also recovered his senses. When he heard Elder Chen Ke’s hushed question, he solemnly replied.
The few elders were stunned. Country Yao Chen? Isn’t that the place Chu Liuyue came back from? It seems like it’s just a subsidiary country in Tianling… How can it have such a strong warrior?!
Shangguan You sighed deeply, but the waves in his heart continued surging as he looked at Rong Xiu with admiration. He then glanced at Chu Liuyue and sighed emotionally with deep meaning. “What Yue’er said was true!”
This Rong Xiu’s talent and capabilities aren’t weaker than hers! Just based on his talent as a Xuan Master, he can surpass Zhao Zicheng! This isn’t even mentioning how he has a legendary fiend! Even if his background is lacking, all of this is already enough!
That previous tinge of doubt had completely disappeared!
Shangguan You was then thoroughly relaxed.
Chu Liuyue blinked and was caught between laughter and tears. Actually, even she didn’t know that Rong Xiu was so strong in this area…
Even if it were me, I might not be able to fight against that attack. How exactly… did Rong Xiu get to this cultivation level?
Shangguan You stood up and looked at Rong Xiu. “Rong Xiu, you… are great!”
Rong Xiu nodded with a smile and bent his back to bow. “Your Majesty, you’re too kind.”
“How is this being kind?!” Shangguan You’s first impression of Rong Xiu was already very good. Now that he personally witnessed the latter’s abilities, he admired this young man even more. “You deserve it!”
Rong Xiu’s brows moved slightly, and he smiled with deep meaning. It seems like this meet-the-parent session went quite smoothly.
Shangguan You’s gaze turned, and he looked at Zhao Zicheng. “Someone, quickly bring Second Young Master Zhao down to rest!”
Zhao Zicheng’s face was a mixture of white and red as he immediately said, “Your Majesty, thank you for your offer, but I’m fine. I can go back by myself.”
It’s already enough for me to lose this match. If someone helps me off, I won’t have any face left for myself.
Zhao Zicheng wiped away the bloodstains from the corner of his mouth as he clenched his teeth and looked at Rong Xiu. “You are strong.”
This sentence had no mockery or jealousy as it was honest from his heart. He really admired Rong Xiu.
“I admit that I’m not good enough, and I’ll admit defeat. Tomorrow, I’ll leave Xi Ling and won’t disturb you again.” When Zhao Zicheng said this, his heart seemed to be pricked countless times by a silver needle, and he was extremely hurt.
He turned around and glanced at Chu Liuyue.
A faint light flashed across his eyes before disappearing. Then, he smiled. Even though I didn’t get back what I’ve always wanted this time, I don’t regret it. I’ve said and done all that I should have. I have no more regrets!
“Please… Take good care of her in the future.” Zhao Zicheng held his chest and harshly coughed.
Rong Xiu’s eyes turned slightly deep. “She’s the apple of my eye. Of course, I’ll dote on her a thousand times more than anyone else.”
“That’s true. I thought too much.” Zhao Zicheng smiled in a self-mocking manner. This man is completely different from Jiang Yucheng. He can give her the best.
Thinking of this, Zhao Zicheng turned around to leave.
Rong Xiu walked toward Chu Liuyue.
The moment he took two steps, Zhao Zicheng stopped, turned around, and asked rather hesitantly, “Can I ask you a question?”
Rong Xiu glanced at him from the corner of his eye.
Zhao Zicheng held his breath and asked, “How… did you train to this level?”
Rong Xiu thought of something as an extremely faint and slight smile appeared on his face. “Yue’er taught me.”
I have no interest in the Xuan Master path. I just trained in it to accompany her for a while longer back then.
