Chapter 739: Idiots Must Die!
Translator: AL_Squad Editor: Chrissy
As the most important event in the past hundred years in Nine Regions, in less than a year, the Grand Competition had spawned many duels destined to be recorded in history.
During the opening match, there were Xuan Mo’s Yin and Yang Divide and Daoist He Tu’s Yin and Yang Embodiment. Later, when the Union of Ten Thousand Immortals was in an unfavorable situation, Wang Lu planned an amazing comeback. These were all classic battles that were well-known and memorable to countless people.
However, compared with today’s big match, the previous battles seemed insignificant.
In many people’s eyes, perhaps in the next few hundred years, there would be no more such a dramatic fight in Nine Regions. To some extent, this match would rewrite the history of Nine Regions.
When Zhu Shiyao stepped on the stage to fight against Senior Gem Emperor, everyone thought that it was a hopeless fight. However, after the fight, it quickly ushered in an unexpected major turning point.
Zhu Shiyao launched a sword strike, and Senior Gem Emperor disappeared.
During the whole time, it took to finish a cup of tea, the entire Central Arena was deathly quiet. Zhu Shiyao put on her heavy glasses and expanded the power of the Stellar Eyes to the limit. Within the audience, people couldn’t help but also help Zhu Shiyao find her opponent.
After no one knows how long, someone finally asked a question.
“Wouldn’t this mean that we win?”
This was, of course, an incredible conjecture. Many people wanted to laugh when they heard about it.
However, the next moment, the person who spoke presented a piece of evidence that could not be ignored.
“Because those Earth Immortals don’t look right.”
People immediately turned their attention to the Earth Immortals sitting on the rostrum. Sure enough, the Earth Immortals who came out to watch the fight looked very serious!
Before this, no matter how big a scene appeared in the arena, they remained indifferent and never doubted their leader. But now, they showed hesitation, confusion, and even panic.
Therefore, the people of the Union of Ten Thousand Immortals began to realize gradually that perhaps Senior Gem Emperor might not come back.
No matter what the reason was, according to the rules of the competition, when a party failed to respond to the fight for a long time, it would be judged as a passive match and counted as a loss. And now, the countdown for the passive match was getting smaller and smaller while Senior Gem Emperor still hadn’t appeared.
As a result, more and more people heard the news and prepared to witness this historic scene.
It seemed that the Union of Ten Thousand Immortals finally saw the dawn of victory in the Grand Competition.
Although the victory of this match was rather baffling, a win is a win. According to the words previously said by Senior Gem Emperor, as long as the Union of Ten Thousand Immortals could win her in any match, she would admit defeat on behalf of the Earth Immortals camp. However, in the past month, people had been used to seeing all heroes of the Union of Ten Thousand Immortals fell into pieces in this competition arena. Those peerless masters who used to be aloof and excelled in the past couldn’t even win a single victory.
However, after this match, perhaps people would soon see Senior Gem Emperor bow her head. As long as people thought of that scene, many people became excited with passion. Many even couldn’t help but cheer in the audience. This kind of emotion spread rapidly so that the audience soon began to hear songs about Zhu Shiyao made and performed by the cultivators themselves.
In their opinion, this indifferent and low-key Elder Sister of Spirit Sword Sect was, at this time, more lovely than anyone in the world!
However, at this time, Zhu Shiyao let out a sentence.
One sentence destined to be recorded in history, and would be remembered by countless people for their entire lives.
“I… give up.”
No one could accurately describe the mood of people in the audience at that moment. From the fiery volcanic crater to the cold howling wind and snowfield, this change happened perhaps in no more than one-thousandth of breath’s time.
“What did she just say?”
On the rostrum, the Red Robed Elder opened his eyes wide and kept pulling his ears with his hands, as if he couldn’t believe what he heard.
Zhu Shiyao, who had already won the victory, said that she had given up.
What was wrong with her? Could it be that Senior Gem Emperor abandoned her royal dignity and began to quietly control Zhu Shiyao’s wit with some secret evil means so that she would admit defeat?
That’s impossible! With the power of Senior Gem Emperor, she could destroy Zhu Shiyao just by breathing, why would she do it sneakily?
This could only mean that Zhu Shiyao made her own decision!
The two Supremes on Red Robed Elder’s sides were also shocked that they almost dislocated their chin.
The next moment, one of them, who was from the Royal Soldier Sect and who pursued the decisive way of attack, suddenly slapped his jaw back, which made a clicking noise! Then he shouted, “Contact the Elder of Spirit Sword Sect at once! Tell them to come quickly to discipline their traitor!”
However, no matter how quick this Supreme react, it was still too late.
In the arena, Zhu Shiyao carefully put away her glasses and shook her head in frustration. The next moment, she took a step out of the arena.
When this step was taken, there was no room for turning back.
Many sighed with anger, which then weaved into a sea of disappointment in an instant. Several grumpy cultivators even showed murderous looks toward Zhu Shiyao, ready to question her intention.
However, before these people arrived, someone came first.
Daoist Master Feng Yin cut through the void and came to the City of Immortals from an untold distance and stood beside Zhu Shiyao.
When he appeared, the murderous looking cultivators could not help but stop, not daring to get close. It was one thing to question a Jindan Stage Zhu Shiyao. It was another to question the leader of one of the Five Uniques.
Fortunately, it seemed that Feng Yin didn’t intend to protect her too much as he questioned her, “Yao’Er, what’s going on?”
Zhu Shiyao looked at Feng Yin with some embarrassment. After a moment, she nibbled her lips and suddenly stabbed Feng Yin with the big Golden Sun Sword in her hand.
This was undoubtedly an act of defiance, but Feng Yin didn’t seem to care. He let the sword light flashed in front of him, which stunned him, followed by him sighing helplessly.
Zhu Shiyao was not good with words, so it was hard for her to explain things with words. But, it didn’t prevent her from resorting to the sword—using the sword language to explain.
Not only Feng Yin who could understand Zhu Shiyao’s sword light, but many other cultivators near her also understood the meaning of the sword light when they saw it.
“Senior Gem Emperor is a great expert that possessed great magical power that could crush me without even lifting a finger. I have tried my best to find a chance, but I can’t even trace her whereabouts. My eyes are full of lines of nothingness, I can’t even see the chance to win. In this case, I have to admit defeat.”
After hearing this explanation, the people present could not even speak.
Although in their hearts they seemed to rain curses at her and roared: Are you an idiot?! If the other side runs away, then she’s not in the arena, so of course, you can’t see any trace of her, you blind f*cker! What the hell were you thinking? You can’t even understand such a simple truth!
However, looking at Zhu Shiyao’s delicate and timid posture, who could say that out loud?
From the appearance alone, it was hard to imagine that she was actually the strongest of her peers. Even Wang Lu didn’t have a sure chance of winning against her—of course, people didn’t know that Wang Lu had already entered Yuanying Stage. However, people truly understood why Spirit Sword Sect would continue to train new people after having Zhu Shiyao until Wang Lu appeared.
Because this Elder Sister was really unreliable! With this kind of IQ, it was really difficult for anyone to give her any kind of responsibilities! She couldn’t even fight well! If she were to be given the leadership position in the future, it was highly likely that Spirit Sword Sect would finish!
Amidst the silence, Zhu Shiyao frowned and raised her sword again.
“Master, did I do something wrong?”
Feng Yin smiled and shook his head, saying, “No, you did nothing wrong.”
Zhu Shiyao was a bit uneasy, “I-I am not good enough, right?”
“No, you’ve done a good job. The opponent is the top character in the Earth Immortal camp. So, it’s normal for you to lose.”
With that, he turned his head and said to everyone around him, “Yao’Er… She did make a low-level mistake in the fight, but perhaps because of this, she didn’t make a bigger mistake.”
“This is a victory that we shouldn’t have.” Feng Yin lightly said, “A one where we have an unfair advantage.”
Naturally, some people immediately countered, “But, it’s after all, still a victory. At this time, it’s ridiculous to pay attention to what kind of victory it was!”
Feng Yin replied, “Ridiculous? Do you dare to say in front of Senior Gem Emperor that we won with a clear conscience?”
“… At least, she ought to accept her defeat.”
“It’s true that Senior Gem Emperor is not a sore loser, but it doesn’t mean that she’s a pedantic fool.” When Feng Yin said that, he saw that there were already a lot of people around him who agreed with him. But there were also many people who still didn’t understand.
So he had to make it clear.
“This victory could only be given to us by Senior Gem Emperor, not by us.”
When it came to this, unless someone was extremely dull, he or she ought to understand this truth.
At this moment, there was a burst of laughter, “Hahaha, well said.”
Hearing this voice, Feng Yin was slightly startled. He said, “Four Element Supreme?”
The speaker was Four Element Supreme. He came from the stand as he spoke. At the same time, the crowd involuntarily separated themselves, leaving him a wide passage—such as the treatment of a Supreme.
“Indeed worthy to be the leader of Spirit Sword Sect. If you didn’t interfere, I’m afraid everyone would make a big mistake on impulse today. Our future is to cooperate sincerely with the Earth Immortals. If we lose the most important thing, which is the mutual recognition of a formal victory, how could we fight together in the future?”
Four Element said that as he shook his head. Then he came to Feng Yin and smiled, saying, “Daoist Master Feng Yin, this time, I really want to thank your Spirit Sword Sect for the help.”
Feng Yin froze for a moment, and then returned the gesture with a polite smile. However, before he spoke, he saw a black ray of light.
Almost subconsciously, Feng Yin summoned his Stellar Sword, which could block the black light from his body.
At this time, it was fortunate that Feng Yin had the Stellar Eyes who could see through the attack one step in advance. If he responded even a tad slower, the black light would already be on his body.
However, although Feng Yin had stopped the attack, it was too late to protect the people around him.
In an instant, Four Element Supreme had sent a bit of black light into Zhu Shiyao’s eyebrows!
“Hahaha, this is my gift for you, Daoist Master Feng Yin. I hope you will like it.”
Before that voice was over, Four Element Supreme had turned into a group of clear shadows, which dispersed under the angry thunderous sound of Feng Yin’s sword.
