Chapter 231: This Powerful Already
Whoosh – !
After seeing his opponent’s appearance, the Bloodthirst Knight still didn’t say anything. However, two dashes of red sword energy shot out from the mass of warrior energy that was surrounding him. Like two lightning bolts, they cut through the air and flew towards Fei.
“This is the “Bloodthirst Sword Energy”, Kelud’s combat technique. I have to warn everyone that you shouldn’t try to block it if you are not at least a five-star warrior.” Matt Razi’s voice sounded in everyone’s ears. His tone was calm, and he was doing his usual casting job.
At the same time.
As if he didn’t sense the danger, Fei didn’t move at all. The sharp wind created by the two sword energy cut off a few of his black hair, and the crowd gasped. However, he suddenly reached out and grabbed onto the two bolts of sword energy! In the next second, the two sword energies turned into bloody mists and disappeared.
“Good. Breaking the energy with his bare hands. The King of Chambord’s strength is impressive as well!”
Matt Razi squinted his eyes as he saw this. But this expression disappeared right away as he clearly commentated on the battle so more than ten thousand people in the crowd could understand what was happening.
The air-piercing sounds didn’t stop.
After seeing his initial attacks didn’t work, Kelud’s face was still very calm. With his red bloody Warrior Energy around him, he waved his hands and several sword energy bolts that were even stronger than the two before appeared and dashed towards Fei. Like rain in a storm, these sword energies surrounded Fei, and the entire stage was turned to red as if it was a sea of blood.
Fei wasn’t scared. He stepped forward rather than backing off.
With his hands at his back, he looked at the bloody sword energies that were dashing towards him with a cold expression on his face.
Tink! Tink! Tink!
Sparks flew everywhere, and it sounded like numerous weapons collided with each other.
Waves of gasps sounded around the stage but when the sword energies were about to hit Fei, a layer of a crystal-like shield appeared in front of Fei. Although it was really thin, it was really firm. All of the bloody sword energy was turned into bloody mists and soon disappeared as they collided with it!
At the same time, a few sword energy bolts slid by Fei and dashed towards the outside of the stage.
“S–t! Save me!”
“Ahahah……. Help! Save me……”
The people who were watching the battle got frightened as they saw the powerful sword energies dashing towards them. Their faces paled since they were weak and weren’t as powerful as Fei. If their bodies were hit by these energy bolts, they would die instantly.
A section of the crowd became chaotic.
At this moment, something occurred.
Every stone that made the First Sword-Testing Stage lit up with a sky-blue light shining within. Then, a powerful magic surged as these lights merged like rivers going into the sea. These lights raised into the sky and made a half-spherical semi-transparent shell that covered the stage. It blocked all the sword energy, and no one in the crowd got injured.
This was the Seven Star Water Magic Barrier – [Heavenly Water Screen] that was set up here by the Royal Mage Capdevila.
This Magic Barrier was a very famous Water Magic spell that offered a lot of protection. With this here, the residual power and forces from the two warriors would be kept inside, and the people in the crowd wouldn’t be harmed. At the same time, the stage would be protected as well.
After seeing this, the crowd calmed down and sat back down.
On the stage.
After both initiations failed, Kelud frowned as a murderous light appeared in his eyes.
He finally made a move, he also took one step forward.
With his bloody warrior energy around him, his body suddenly flashed through 30 meters and appeared at a spot that was 3 meters away from Fei. The bloody warrior energy filled the space around them……
Kelud clenched his fist and punched out.
It was loud like thunder.
All of the bloody warrior energy was pulled by this punch. Together with this fist, the energy rushed toward Fei liked a tsunami. The huge force created a ton of wind, and Fei’s black hair and dark red cape fluttered. Both his long black hair and cape were at a right angle to his body.
When faced with this huge devastating strike, Fei’s response was simple.
He stepped out.
He punched out.
Although this punch wasn’t as fancy as Kelud’s where he pulled in all the red warrior energy around, it had a pure crystal like force around it. Boom! Like a hot knife piercing into butter, the redness in front of Fei exploded and shattered.
The two fists collided with each other.
At that moment, time and space seemed have taken a pause. Nothing explosive or magical that the crowd thought would occur didn’t occur. Everything was so calm that it looked like nothing happened.
The two fists were right on each other.
There was no surge of power.
As everyone was surprised, something occurred.
Waves of lights were sent out like someone dropped a rock into a calm lake. Clear lights mixed with redness struck onto the stage and the magic barrier round after round, and the magic barrier lit up even more as if it was trying its best to hold this force in it. As the magic barrier got bluer, the lights shone even brighter! Half of the sky was lit up, and the crowd heard a sound of water flowing.
The explosive force that everyone was waiting for appeared.
Although they knew they were being protected by the level 7 magic barrier and the force on the stage won’t get to them, the people in the crowd still started sweating and shouting out in fear.
On the stage –
The red figure flashed and returned to where he was standing before.
As the red energy and dust settled, both parties were standing at their initial spots without any wounds on their bodies. Kelud still had the red warrior energy surrounding him, and Fei was still standing there with hands behind his back and his cape fluttering in the wind. From the look of it, nothing changed.
“What happened? Who won…….”
The crowd was confused to what happened after that one impressive encounter. They were all quiet and were waiting for an explanation.
Most of the people here were one or two-star warriors; they were weak and didn’t have much understanding of power. For them, they didn’t catch what happened after the explosion, and they couldn’t tell exactly who had the upper hand.
In the VIP area –
“Hehe, this King Alexander is interesting. He didn’t show any signs of weakness when facing the Seventh Executive Knight. I’m not sure how long he can last in this duel. Eh…… A man like this is worthy enough for our Dean Family to take in……” The future leader of Dean Family took off his eagle mask and thought.
Not too far from him, Beyoncé of the Beag Family did show anything on her cold and elegant face, but the leader of Beag Family patted his thighs and shouted, “Nice!”. People around him looked at him and thought: “Who exactly is he rooting for?”
“In this first round…… King of Chambord and the Bloodthirst Knight are evenly matched!”
Matt Razi’s voice sounded again. The crowd finally heard the person who they wanted to hear from, and no one doubted his comments. This strange and mysterious man who loved gold and wine had judged more than a hundred duels like this and never made a single mistake.
A lot of people were surprised.
They didn’t expect that the King of Chambord could actually hold up against Kelud who had such a vicious name.
Although the news that the King of Chambord defeated the Tenth Executive Knight Chris-Sutton at Dual-Tower Mountains were passed around the campsites, some people still didn’t believe it. Also, the Tenth Executive Knight was young and had just gotten promoted. He had limited experience, and wasn’t a six-star warrior yet. However, Kelud on the other hand was a warrior from the generation before Fei, and he had been a six-star warrior for a long time. His name was known around the empire, and he had been through numerous battles …… after comparing, most people bet on Kelud to win.
And to a lot of people, Kelud would win this duel easily.
The only thing that they weren’t sure about was how many rounds this young king can go with Kelud.
This was the question that almost everyone wanted to know.
However, Matt Razi who had never made an error before said the young king of Chambord matched up to Kelud in the first round…… “Could the King of Chambord be this powerful already?” This was the only question on people’s mind.
