Chapter 376: You Are the Dog, The Watchdog (6)
“In addition, I have another piece of good news to tell everyone in advance. First place in this year’s competition will be accepted as President Wu’s personal disciple, so everyone, please work hard!” At this moment, the host’s voice sounded from the inner area of the competition venue, and this also indicated that the competition was about to begin.
The moment the host finished speaking, the audience immediately erupted in applause. The representatives of the various branches participating in the competition were even more excited…
“Little Lan Lan, why didn’t you tell me that first place will be accepted as a personal disciple by that fellow surnamed Wu?” Leng Ruoxue said with some dissatisfaction. Hmph! She wanted to win first place, but she didn’t want to become someone’s disciple. That fellow wasn’t qualified to be her master.
“I just found out too. But usually, first place in the competition will basically be accepted as a disciple by the president of headquarters,” Lan Ming explained.
“Oh, looks like this person surnamed Wu intends to replace him. Little Lan Lan, if your master doesn’t come out, this Wu guy will control the headquarters in the future. No, it will be controlled by the Sun guy,” Leng Ruoxue said understandingly. This Wu guy’s ambition was obvious, and he was closely related to the Sun family!
“Alas! My master…” Lan Ming frowned helplessly. Of course, he also hoped that his master could leave seclusion early. But he couldn’t go to the secret room to drag his master out if his master didn’t come out himself! Moreover, he couldn’t enter either!
“Hmph! Your master better not come out of seclusion now, or I will definitely bite him,” Icy said impatiently. Icy wouldn’t let Lan Ming’s master go after he managed the Mystic Association Headquarters to this extent.
“…” Lan Ming didn’t know what to say. Why does this puppy always want to bite Master? How did Master offend this puppy? Master! Take care! There’s a puppy waiting to bite you outside!
While Lan Ming was letting his imagination run wild, the competition officially began…
For today’s matches, there were a total of ten arenas, and matches would take place at the same time. The participating representatives would go on stage in accordance with the prearranged order. The winner would advance directly, and the loser would have to compete in another round.
“Old Zao, you’re the first to go on stage among us. All the best!” Lan Ming reminded Old Zao as he looked at him.
“Yes, don’t worry. I’ll definitely start with a bang for everyone,” Old Zao promised with a smile. Hehe. He might be the weakest among them, but he was an artificer! He had long prepared a secret weapon. Moreover, he had several dragons, so he wasn’t afraid of any opponents at all.
Leng Ruoxue’s gaze had been watching every move on the field. The ten groups currently fighting on the field were not very strong. But the one who made her take a second look was the man in his early thirties on Arena 9.
The man was tall, had an ordinary appearance, and wore ordinary clothes. Although his strength was only at Mystic, the aura on his body was not at all inferior to the Elementary Mystic he was fighting. So Leng Ruoxue believed that this man would definitely be able to amaze the world and become a powerhouse above everyone with time.
As for his opponent, even though he was an Elementary Mystic, he likely ranked at the bottom among Elementary Mystics. So Leng Ruoxue was more optimistic about the ordinary-looking man in their group.
“Little Lan Lan, who are those people on Arena 9?” Leng Ruoxue asked curiously.
“Let me take a look. Uh, that man is from Thousand Willow City, and the other person is from Sun Zhou City and Zhou Kun’s group,” Lan Ming said as he looked at the name list in his hands.
“Oh,” Leng Ruoxue answered lightly and stopped talking.
“Little Snowy, which one do you think is better?” Lan Ming asked curiously. He didn’t believe that this girl was just asking casually!
“That linen-clothed man,” Leng Ruoxue said calmly, ignoring the unfriendly gazes of Zhou Kun and the others not far away.
“Hmph! Your vision is really not good. That man from Thousand Willow City is only a Mystic. How can he beat an Elementary Mystic? This is too funny,” someone from the Sun Zhou City’s Mystic Association said with a displeased face.
“Little Snowy, do you really think that man from Thousand Willow City will win?” Lan Ming also said in disbelief. On the Boundless Heaven Continent, wanting to defeat the strong as the weak was very difficult. Therefore…
Leng Ruoxue ignored the Sun Zhou City’s mystic and said to Lan Ming with a chuckle, “Little Lan Lan, want to bet?”
“Okay! What do you want to bet on?” Lan Ming said with interest.
“Ten million purple gold coins. Give me ten million if I win. If I lose, you can pay me ten million less. How about it?” Leng Ruoxue said with the expression of the Big Bad Wolf tempting Little Red Riding Hood.
“…” Lan Ming was a little speechless when he heard this bet. Why is this girl thinking of amassing wealth all the time! He had really never seen such a materialistic person in his thirty-odd years of life.
“I’ll bet with you. But if you want to bet, bet big. How about a hundred million purple gold coins?” The mystic from Sun Zhou City just now jumped out impatiently with a provocative face before Lan Ming could answer.
“Okay! I have no objections. But are you sure you can take out a hundred million?” Leng Ruoxue asked with a light smile. How could she not want someone rushing to give her money?
“Of course I do. Do you know who I am? Why wouldn’t I be able to fork out a hundred million purple gold coins?” the mystic roared furiously. Damn ugly monster! How dare she suspect that he couldn’t produce the money. This was simply the greatest humiliation to him. His family was one of the wealthiest families apart from the Three Great Families. Hmph! He would definitely crush this ugly monster with money later.
“To be honest, I really don’t know who you are. This young lady only recognizes money and not people. If you want to bet with me, take out a hundred million purple gold coins first. Otherwise, go wherever you want to go!” Leng Ruoxue said without negotiation.
“Okay, isn’t it just a hundred million? Here. It’s simply a drop in the bucket for this young master and not worth mentioning.” The mystic took out a silver card that was usable across the entire continent and handed it to Leng Ruoxue for her to check.
