In the arena, a gangly looking fellow stood in opposition to Wu Yan. The guy is about as built as a bamboo pole, his special student uniform seemed oversized on him. Although he looked corny this seemed to be a rather characterizing trait of his.
Chester: Level 67
Everyone started discussing and chatting away. Nobody in school is ignorant of Chester’s identity as the leader of one of the major factions. Only someone like Wu Yan who is foreign to this world would need an update from someone else to remember who his opponent is.
Chester still remembers how his faction and the other factions got challenged by Wu Yan. He and the others almost lost that day but to think they would meet so soon again, fate really has a way of putting those at odds to meet once more.
Wu Yan shut out all the static noise coming from the crowd. His opponent is just an opponent that escaped a beating due to the interruption that occurred before. It didn’t matter if Chester made an appearance that day, none of the opponents present that day could pose a threat to him.
The opponent, however, doesn’t think so.
He stared at Wu Yan with an icy look. He grasped his knuckles. He’s the scion to a great and powerful family, he has to defend more than just his strength, he has to protect his honor.
Wu Yan smacked them right in their metaphorical honor balls. His attitude, his way of talking rubbed each of the leaders the wrong way.
Chester felt complex regarding Wu Yan, he wanted to praise him for his strength, but he can’t ignore how he dishonored him. Moreover, he also wanted to recruit the guy while giving him a lesson in respect.
He held back his thoughts regarding Wu Yan, they are now fighting in a tournament, he had no spare margin when going up against a worthy foe like Wu Yan.
He raised his dou qi and brought out a spear.
The spear danced in the air as he performed spear arts with it. He did an elegant spin on the spear before pointing it at Wu Yan. His swift and fluid movements garnered him the cheers of the crowd.
Wu Yan examined Chester who had a grim look. He might appear unfazed but he is secretly happy.
Looking at the spear Chester is using he can’t help but silently snicker. Looks like this round is going to be another easy win.
Wu Yan looked at Lei Wang who stood atop the VIP platform and he gave him the signal.
Not failing to notice, Lei Wang smiled and he declared the start of the battle.
“Let the first fight of the second round, begin!”
The mood of the spectators immediately changed into one of utter hype.
One of them speed ran his way through the first 5 floors of the arena tower while the other had the strength of a ranker infinitesimally close to the top 10 rankers.
This fight might turn out to be the most exciting battle yet.
The two of them emitted aura to intimidate one another. It was so intense those spectators closer to the arena had to hold their breaths.
When the tense mood reached its climax, the situation quickly changed.
A figure drew afterimages as he charged like a meteor towards the other.
When one of the figures met with the other figure, Chester struck out a quick jab with his spear. This lightning-fast strike got deflected with a palm smack by Wu Yan. The spear struck the ground close to Wu Yan.
Grimacing for a bit, he quickly pulled out his spear and maneuvered to Wu Yan’s back before he unleashed a torrent of spear jabs.
Wu Yan smiled as he sensed the attacks.
Ding ting twang
A series of metallic noise rang. Chester flinched when he noticed Wu Yan had pulled out a black sword in the brief moment he moved to his back.
It’s his signature iron sand sword.
Wu Yan grinned and he jumped back while throwing his sword in the air. When the sword stayed fixed some distance above him, he pointed at Chester.
Countless people noticed this move. They gasped at the thought of what’s going to happen next.
Indeed, the space around the arena turned crimson red. The initial sword marked the start of a barrage as countless sword responded to the call.
Chester’s hair stood on ends. Those blades could come all at once from any direction, no matter how strong he is he still felt stressed going up against this technique.
Chester roared and he shot a spear beam at Wu Yan.
He didn’t care what Wu Yan is going to do, he’s going to strike first, even better if this restricted his movements.
One of the blades shot down and intercepted the spear beam. The spear beam dissipated after taking down the sword, turning it into a cloud of iron dust.
The swords might have been augmented by Knight of Owner but they are still D rank equipment. C rank equipment can easily shatter them in prolonged confrontations.
But, an iron sand sword can be reformed at will, and that’s where it gets good.
The iron dust scattering in the wind stopped midair and gathered back into the form of a sword with a spark of electricity as the catalyst. The sword looked like it was never broken in the first place.
Chester almost pinched his thighs. He wanted to scream out loud. How does one go about fighting an opponent where offense and defense won’t work.
Wu Yan smiled. He commanded the swords to fly towards Chester. The swords that looked like a locust swarm minced anything in its path as it worked its way to the target.
Bam bam bam bam bam
The swords are like tiny missiles that destroyed the arena while landing furiously on Chester. Dust clouds clouded one’s view of Chester.
After a brief moment of continued bombardment, the iron sand swords stopped and flew back into the red space around the arena. The swords disappeared into the portals.
Everyone stared wide-eyed at the arena. Lei Wang waved his hand and a gust of wind blew away the dust clouds in the arena.
Chester could be seen lying on top of the arena in a ragged manner. He is down for the count.
“Victory goes to Wu Yan!”
Wu Yan threw a vague reference.
Well, that’s what you get for being a Lancer.
