Chapter 365: The start of the battle on the Grievance Settling Platform!
Translator: GodBrandy Editor: Kurisu
Although it was supposed to be three days later, there were only two days and a half left before the start of the battle. In the wee hours of the 21st, the battle on the Grievance Settling Platform finally started.
The Chu Family decided where to hold the battle, while the Illusory Sword School decided the time...
After looking at the sour expression of the leader of the Chu Family, the mood of the school head of the Illusory Sword School got much better. He knew that the talented Chu Chu was bound not to step on the Grievance Settling Platform.
Everything was proceeding as 'that mister' predicted. At this time, the Chu Family was like a plump piece meat, just waiting to be swallowed down.
However, even a wild beast would fight desperately if cornered. Hence, he needed to strike them hard first.
Since the two supervisors from the Eternal Sword Sect hadn't arrived yet, he could use a few tricks to lower the morale of the opposite party even further.
Therefore, he respectfully said to the two figures in the rear, "I request you gentlemen to show a bit of your strength to the people of the Chu Family, letting them know how short-sighted they are."
The two figures faintly smiled and nodded, their expressions enigmatic. The duo stood up and stepped out of the camp of the Illusory Sword School, turning towards the camp of the Chu Family.
In the next moment, they released their strength and a huge amount of spiritual energy gushed out of their bodies, with a faint golden light appearing on their faces.
They were Fifth Stage Golden Core Spiritual Emperors!
The overbearing aura of two respected Spiritual Emperors shrouded the camp of the Chu Family. How could cultivators of the First, Second, or Third Stage resist the aura of someone of the Fifth Stage?
Most of the members of the Chu Family had a terrified expression on their faces. Even the face of the family leader became a little paler as he stubbornly stared at those two Spiritual Emperors!
The Illusory Sword School has two members of the Fifth Stage?! Impossible! If they had two Spiritual Emperors as members, they wouldn't be a mediocre second-rate school!
The two Spiritual Emperors kept their aura on for around three breaths. Afterward, they restrained it once more and coldly smiled at the people of the Chu Family, turning around and returning in the rear of the camp of the Illusory Sword School.
"Xu Zheng!" The family leader of the Chu Family clenched his teeth and said, "What do you think you're doing? You can't have helpers fight for you on the Grievance Settling Platform!"
"Hehehe I know well that helpers can't fight on the Grievance Settling Platform." Xu Zheng faintly smiled and said, "These two seniors are guests of our Illusory Sword School. After hearing that our school was participating in a battle on the Grievance Settling Platform, they decided to come over and take a look. They're just bystanders and have no intention to participate in the battles."
These two Spiritual Emperors had been invited here by 'that mister' to help the Illusory Sword School.
The leader of the Chu Family tightly clenched his fists even if they weren't going to participate, just with their presence, those two Spiritual Emperors would exercise a lot of pressure on the people of the Chu Family.
As if that wasn't enough, the aura they released just now completely crushed the morale of the Chu Family. Even the clansmen that were going to participate in the battle on the Grievance Settling Platform had been influenced by their might. It was unlikely that they would be able to fight at their full strength now.
The leader of the Chu Family clenched his teeth so hard that they almost broke. He hated the fact that the Chu Family was so weak and couldn't afford to invite powerful reinforcements.
Amidst the people of the Chu Family, Soft Feather furrowed her brows. Although the aura of those two Spiritual Emperors didn't have that much of an effect on her, she still felt uncomfortable when that power oppressed her.
She rubbed her body, somewhat frustrated, and muttered, "Why is Senior Song not here yet!"
He clearly said he would set out on the 18th, and two days and a half later, he's still not here? Did he get lost?
In the dark.
Soft Feather's senior brother, Liu Jianyi, opened his mouth wide Shiet, just when I got lazy and took a nap, two Spiritual Emperors suddenly appeared and used their aura to intimidate Junior Sister Soft Feather?!
'If they dare to act against Soft Feather, you know what to do, right?' Venerable Spirit Butterfly's words reverberated in Liu Jianyi's mind.
What should I do? Should I kill those two Spiritual Emperors? That's going to be troublesome!
Just as he was in deep thoughts, his phone suddenly rung. After unlocking it, he discovered that it was a call from Venerable Spirit Butterfly.
"..." Liu Jianyi.
F*ck, did teacher hid a camera on my body so that he could monitor my actions? Is that why he immediately called as soon as something happened to Junior Sister Soft Feather?
Liu Jianyi stiffly greeted, "Hello, teacher. How are you?"
"I'm good." Venerable Spirit Butterfly's voice transmitted from the other end. "Jianyi, get ready to receive an express delivery. I'll use a flying sword to send an item there in half an hour. Pass it to Soft Feather as soon as you receive it."
After hearing this much, Liu Jianyi heaved a sigh of relief. "Sure, no problem."
"Right, how is Soft Feather doing lately? Is everything okay?" Venerable Spirit Butterfly asked.
"Everything is fine. There are some minor problems, but I can take care of them," Liu Jianyi said as he clenched his teeth.
"Good, good remember, don't slack off and immediately kill anyone who dares to harm Soft Feather! Let them know that the Spirit Butterfly Island mustn't be messed with if you can't defeat them, give me a call. I'll rush over there in an instant," Venerable Spirit Butterfly said in a grave tone.
"Teacher, I understand!" Liu Jianyi clenched his teeth.
After hanging up, Liu Jianyi sighed things were going to get busy, and he would have to separate from his beloved laziness for a while.
However, his opponents were two Spiritual Emperors what a headache.
He had told everyone that he was a Fourth Stage Innate Realm, wouldn't it give rise to suspicion if he were to suddenly kill two Spiritual Emperors?
If he were to reveal his true strength, how could he keep slacking off and reap benefits from the confusion!
Around ten minutes later.
Two lights flashed on the Grievance Settling Platform. They were the two Spiritual Emperors of the Eternal Sword Sect.
Now that they were here, the battle on the Grievance Settling Platform could officially start!
The battle between the Chu Family and the Illusory Sword School was divided into three categories.
Juniors below the age of sixty were going to participate in the first category. Both sides would send three people each that would fight a one-versus-one battle to decide the winner.
Core members below the age of 150 were going to join in the second category. Likewise, both sides would three people each that would fight a one-versus-one battle to decide the winner.
If both sides were to obtain a victory in each category and end up in a tie, they would send their strongest members to fight it out in the third and last category. The faction capable of winning two out of the three categories would be the final winner.
The three disciples chosen by the Illusory Sword School for the first category were all at the First Stage Dragon Gate Realm.
The jump through the dragon gate was a bottleneck that had blocked many cultivators of the First Stage. If you were to fail the jump, your cultivation would drop by a small realm, and you would have to practice again to gather enough qi and blood to try to jump through the gate once more.
Many cultivators would reach the First Stage Dragon Gate Realm while 20-30 years old and spend the next 30-40 years trying to jump through the dragon gate.
The Illusory Sword School hadn't been too lucky. Amongst the disciples that were nearing the age of sixty, not even one had successfully jumped through the dragon gate, reaching the Second Stage.
On the other side, only two of the three disciples of the Chu Family that were supposed to participate showed themselves. They too were in the First Stage Dragon Gate Realm. Chu Chu was the third participant however, she had yet to arrive.
