Chapter 4 Emperor comes out, All Beasts Silent
All of the magus beasts in the arena seemed to suddenly stop breathing. None were brave enough to make a sound.
When the presence swept, the silent beasts laid on the ground, their legs giving out. The flying beasts in the air seemed to be in choke holds, falling to the ground. Under everyone’s gaping gaze, they bowed their heads in that direction, losing their fighting spirit.
From all the beasts roaring to complete silence took just a moment. Looking over, there were no magus beasts on the platforms who were still standing, including many divine beasts!
Only Lil’ Nine was proudly raising his head, his eyes glancing across the magus beasts. His eyes carried an innate majesty, like an emperor patrolling his subjects.
Silence! A strange silence!
The wind blew by. Even the participants of the competition were stunned as well, forgetting that this was a good chance to kick the people around them off the platform. They were overwhelmed by this scene that had never appeared in history before.
Because there were many magisters attending, and many magus beasts, even though some possessed divine beasts, there would be competition between divine beasts of the same rank. They would be hostile to each other, and most of the time, their presences would cancel each other out. Such a situation of complete silence would not occur. This scene of all paying respect was so magnificent!
All gazes followed the magus beasts to Aofeng. This youth with blue eyes and blue hair entered their sights.
The people who had come here were not rookies. Most of the experts had a great understanding of magus beasts. So when they saw all the beasts bowing to the human form Lil’ Nine and Aofeng, the hundred platforms were in an uproar.
“Heavens, super-divine beast!”
“His Excellency Qin Aofeng’s super-divine beast!”
“Just as much of a freak as in the rumors!”
On the distant main platform, VIP seats had been set up. Venerable Swordsman Lei Ting and the other experts were watching from there. Yun Lu of the Central Cloud City and Shang Qian of the Radiance Magus Church had come just to see Aofeng’s strength. The two of them were in great shock at this scene right when the competition started.
The two of them quickly jumped up, walking to the banister and bending down as though they wanted to see more clearly.
“The sky shakes, the earth moves, the emperor comes out, all the beasts are silent!”
A cool voice sounded behind the two of them. Yun Lu and Shang Qian looked back, and saw a blue-eyed man in sky blue robes slowly walk up to them, a proud smile on his face. He seemed to be speaking to himself, “The little guy even has such a magus beast. Ah, I do not know how many other secrets there are.”
“The emperor comes out, all the beasts are silent? Your Excellency Lan Xiu, you…you are saying that this is an emperor type super-divine beast?” The two old men shouted. They had gotten more shocks in the last few days than in the hundred years before this.
The beautiful man was Lan Xiu, who had come to watch. The great battle a great event for Karroll. The imperial school had sent representatives to attend. Lan Xiu rarely appeared at large events like this. But before he managed to find Ye Sha and the others of the battle hall, he first found this person.
Aofeng particiating was within Lan Xiu’s expectations. But starting with a scene of stunning all people and beasts silent was really unexpected.
Lan Xiu smiled at the two and nodded, explaining, “An adult super-divine beast usually looks like a man in his twenties. But look at how old the little guy looks.”
The magus scholar and venerable swordsman rank experts had stunning sight. Hearing this, they looked, and they saw Lil’ Nine’s current appearance. They sucked in a breath.
A youth fifteen or so. This was the growth stage! In the growth stage and able to take human form, he must be a higher ranked emperor type super-divine beast. Everybody knew that the earlier a magic beast could take form, the higher ranked they were. Some divine rank magic beasts were even able to take human form when they were a baby.
There were few human form super-divine beasts on the continent. Ordinary celestial rank experts could not ever be in contact with emperor type super-divine beasts. Some had never even heard of this. Most of the people present thought that Lil’ Nine was just a normal super-divine beast. Only those in the fifth rank, magus scholars and above had heard of this. Supposedly, when emperor type super-divine beasts became adults, they could reach high star-levels. If they had a strong bloodline, they could even break through the barrier of divine rank!
In the secret information of the Central Cloud City and the Radiance Magus Church, they had mentioned that Aofeng possessed a super-divine beast. But they did not know the actual level. Seeing it with their own eyes, they saw that this was an emperor type super-divine beast. Aofeng’s value in their eyes increased again.
“There is a need to report to the archbishop (castellan), otherwise, the old man will steal from me!” The two both thought inside. Then they found excuses to leave, hurriedly going to their residences to use magic mediums and report the situation.
Divine rank, what concept was this? Thinking of the status of that person in Central Cloud City. If not for that divine rank expert, how could Central Cloud City have such a high status that even the Radiance Magus Church, who had the faith of the continent, was a bit lower? To be able to reach divine rank, even if it was just the potential, this person would become someone that any faction would do their best to train.
“Starting by releasing a super-divine beast, so arrogant!” On a distant platform, Yun Cheng’s face turned black. A layer of blue shamanic power was channeled to his six star divine beast, the Bone Patterned Blood Lizard, making it alert.
High level magic beasts had an advantage against lower level magic beasts. During the battle, one had to use some shamanic power to fend off the other, and it took a lot of shamanic power to fend against the presence of a super-divine beast.
Li Zhen snorted coldly. “So what if it is a super divine beast? That super-divine beast has not matured at all, and can at most use two to three tenths of its power. Also, I am a venerable swordsman. The presence of a super-divine beast is ineffective against me. I am its bane. Just watch. Once his team and ours are on the same platform, it is his time to die!”
“Yes, even Lan Xiu cannot help him during the Great Duel.” Yun Cheng viciously nodded.
Over on Aofeng’s platform, the teams close by wanted to cry. “The presence of this super-divine beast is too much!”
The magic they poured into their magus beasts quickly flowed away like water. Their magus beasts could stand back up without trembling, but even though they had stood up, they were still in low spirits. They could not attack Lil’ Nine and Aofeng. How could they fight?
Experts in celestial rank or who had sacred beasts could manage to fight. But even so, they used up their power quickly.
A freak was unreasonable!
Using Lil’ Nine’s power, Aofeng and the others started to act, kicking most of the teams around them off with one strike. Then they moved outwards, gradually over the entire platform. When things started to move on this platform, light appeared on the other platforms. Chaotic battle started!
The people who had some power hid far away like frightened rabbits, not willing to meet them. Aofeng’s team was made out of celestial rank experts. No one would come to try them. Even if a rare few had some ideas, they could only bow their heads in the face of the super-divine beast.
“Ah, Your Excellency Qin Aofeng, do not kick, do not kick, I, I will go down myself……” one magister saw Aofeng dart in front of him and hurriedly shouted. Then he quickly jumped off the platform. Aofeng was both amused and exasperated.
“Aofeng, it is about enough. Let’s not go make trouble for other people. Just rest in this corner. If anyone makes trouble for us, it will not be too late for us to act then.” Right now, this was just the selection. They did not even need to summon their magus beasts. Qin Aotian did not want to waste power, and sat down to rest.
The people who had been running around in the crowd, coming back to sit down. Lil’ Nine stood at the front with a smile. No magister dared to cross the line. On this side, there was fierce fighting, on the other, some people were idly chatting. This ridiculous scene caused the eyebrows of the referee on the side to raise up high.
The heated battle continued for a long time. The selection only ended when the sun was high up in the sky. The ten teams of each platform were selected. Because there were so many people this year, the slots were full. From a hundred platforms, a thousand teams were chosen.
After the ones who were eliminated were led away, Aofeng and the others were asked to wait at the side.
There was a deafening roar. Under everyone’s shocked gazes, the platforms slowly started to move, and after they came together, they formed ten large platforms. Each one was made from ten of the original platforms. A hundred teams to each. This time, the battlefield was much larger. Everyone then drew lots again and went into their platforms.
“Central Cloud, this time, we are in the same group as them.” Once Aofeng entered the platform, she saw the Central Cloud battle team not far away in their white robes.
There were five people in the Central Cloud battle team, and one youth from Qin Lu’s party who was selected to make up the numbers. They looked over with hostility. They were young and proud. They thought they were from Central Cloud City and were the best. They had no respect for Qin Aotian and Qin Aofeng.
Yun Qinghong hurriedly reminded the others. “Be careful, the Central Cloud battle team is not just strong. When five of them are together in a team, they can use a strange five energy battle formation. In terms of crowd attacks, their attack power will increase many fold. A battle formation created by several normal celestial magisters can break the defenses of a magus scholar expert.”
“Formation? I want to see!” Aofeng had heard of the power of some formations before, and did not dare to be careless. She became alert and told Lil’ Nine there was no need to be polite and use his presence to pressure them.
As expected, when the second round started, the five members of the Central Cloud City quickly flew to five corners of the platform. Then, the leader, a young person in his twenties, shouted, “Five Energy Battle Formation, activate!”
Blue energy pillars shot up out of the five equally spread out points, made from shamanic power. The faces of the five high level celestial magisters turned pale. The world outside the formation seemed to be blocked out. Lil’ Nine’s presence could not affect outside!
