I cannot understand.
The interior of the Palace was vast, as though it was an entirely new world.
Many large statues stood erect all around, there were males and females, some dressed in armor, some in light robes. All of their appearances were blurred, but the time they were cast was obvious, some were very new, and some were extremely old. They stood by the sides of the Palace like big mountains, in perfect rows.
On the left and right walls were simple dark yellow relief sculptures, every single one of them were lifelike, giving off a feeling that could shock the heart.
When Su Yun walked in, there were already countless people inside, other than the dozens of white robed and white masked Qin Creek Protectors, inside the palace sat four pale people.
The four of them had the clothes of the Qin Creek people, yet they did not have masks.
They kept their sunken yet spirited eyes opened, looking at every participant that entered the Sacred Palace.
Behind them were many circular array formations.
These array formations were either red, yellow, black or purple, every formation sealed a treasure, the array formation blocked the Qi of the treasures, disallowing people to sense the grade of the treasures, but even without sensing the Qi of the treasures, people could tell that they were not of the ordinary objects. And behind the arrays where the treasures were kept, was a gigantic circular array formation, this dazzling and splendid array formation shot a gold light into the sky, inside the halo of light, there was a gigantic mythical lion leaping around, it was extremely mysterious. There were no treasures inside, and no one knew what it was for.
When Su Yun entered the Sacred Palace, his eyes were immediately plastered onto the array formation.
“Are those the prizes of the Mountain River List ranking competition?”
His heart started to pulse quickly, an obvious look of passion appearing in his eyes.
Walking to the center of the Sacred Palace, Su Yun followed the rules and greeted the four pale Qin Creek Elders with a cupped fist.
“Junior Wu Yun, greets the four seniors.”
The four of them were the officials of the ranking competition, and were also the peak existences of Qin Creek. Although no one knew if there were anyone leading the entire Qin Creek, it was obvious that the people currently in charge were the four of them.
Su Yun quietly used the Heavenly Scale Divine Eye to size up the four of them, but realised that he could not see through their strength, as he was unable to even catch a hint of any profound spirit force fluctuation.
They should at least be of the Spirit Star Realm, and their stages must not be low either.
He secretly thought.
The four of them nodded, an old man within the four with a thick bulky whip of hair behind his head spoke out.
“Wu Yun, you have earned the qualifications of the competition, please sit quietly by the side to wait. When everyone gathers, the competition will then begin.”
Su Yun cupped his fists and followed behind the two of them.
There were many youths of both males and females seated at both sides, all of their Qi were strong, they were of a different class of people that Su Yun had interacted before.
Everyone here was young, but surely, in the future, each and every one of them would be powerful major characters that will shake the world.
Su Yun found a place to sit and closed his eyes to meditate to wait quietly. A few sinister eyes from far away looked over and landed on his body, but he did not sense them.
Just then, a light sound came out from the big doors, following that, two figures walked over.
“Junior Xiao Chuo, greets the four seniors!!”
A sweet sounding and pretty voice that carried some degree of heroic spirit came out from person.
Before Su Yun could open his eyes to look at the person, he then heard another voice inside the Sacred Palace.
“The Valkyrie has arrived!”
An unknown person shouted out. The Difference Between the Two Types of Participants
So the Valkyrie was called Xiao Chuo.
Su Yun opened his eyes and looked over. The lady was dressed in black garments, with bright eyes and teeth, and her skin looked as though she had makeup on. Her figure was extremely alluring, delicate and sensual, with a graceful posture and noble temperament, her eyes and lips, every word and action looked as though she was from the Temple in the Heavens, without any flaws, especially the vaguely clear smooth and round hips concealed by the black garments. Her long, slender legs seem to be filled with power. But the one that stole people’s heart and soul away was her full chest that she proudly puffed up, and her slender waist making people have the urge to hold her tightly. The curves of her body showed off her beauty, she did not seem to look mature, but to already have this appearance, in the future where she fully ripens, even one look or smile from her could most likely cause a person’s bone to melt, and soul to fly to the sky.
Many people were entranced by her absolute beauty and temperament. The other ladies flashed looks of disgust, she lightly swept her gaze across everyone, causing them all to tremble with a chill, the cold intent across their back made it seem as though it was instead, a wild beast staring at them.
Valkyrie Xiao Chuo bowed and then went to the front most right side and sat down quietly, and the other person who followed and sat beside her, was the young lady in the forest who wielded the blade and sword.
The valkyrie was a seeded participant, and naturally could join in the Mountain River Sect, while the young lady under her had participated in the selection competition and fought her way up the dragon group, allowing her to participate as well. But it seemed as though her only goal was just to personally wait on the Valkyrie.
“Valkyrie’s name is truly not a facade, that appearance and aura, is truly more powerful than what the rumors say!”
A languid voice came out from the side. Su Yun turned to look and saw a young man whose face was like jade, wearing a green crown on his head and holding a wooden staff in his hand, smiling towards Xiao Chuo.
His name was Yan Yu, who was a seeded participant from Flaming Dragon Pavilion, nicknamed “Yang Fire”, his Scarlet Star Spirit Qi was unfathomable, and it was said that he could easily burn an entire forest and mountain.
But, when he said those words, Valkyrie actually turned a deaf ear to him, she quietly closed her eyes and relaxed herself, as though she did not year Yan Yu’s words. Even the young lady called Xiao Xue, Valkyrie’s servant didn’t even look at him.
This was basically not putting Yan Yu in their eyes.
Yan Yu’s face immediately changed, his expression extremely ugly.
But with Valkyrie’s strength, even when Yan Yu was awkward, he did not dare to make a sound.
Just at that moment, a laughter came out.
“Hahaha, Valkyrie can’t even be bothered to look at you, and you’re still thinking to try to make connections with her? What a joke, hahaha!”
The one who spoke was Xiao Yuan Ba, who was a participant that fought his way up to selection competition into the dragon group. He was very huge, his hands held onto his dual wield hammer, wearing a treasure armor, his entire body was filled with explosive power.
But when he said that, Yan Yu’s face immediately became colder.
“What are you? Just a selection competition member, you actually dare to speak against me? Seeking death!”
When he said that, Yan Yu actually jumped to the center of the Hall, taking out his gold order badge from his waist, raising it above his head, he shouted: “Participant Yan Yu, with accordance to the Mountain River Order, I issue a challenge!”
Su Yun did not understand.
But in the next moment, the four elders that were seated at the front opened their eyes at the same time and looked at Yan Yu.
“Who do you want to challenge?” One of the elder asked.
Yan Yu turned, using his staff, he pointed at Xiao Yuan Ba and said: “Him!”
The old man looked at the startled Xiao Yuan Ba with his yellow eyes, and asked: “Participant Xiao Yuan Ba, there is already a participant challenging you, if you do not accept, then you will be deemed as failed and unable to participate in the competition later. If you accept this challenge and win, you can continue to participate, and obtain a higher ranking. Please tell me your choice.”
“What? There is such a thing?” Xiao Yuan Ba and many people were also unclear of the ranking competition’s rules.
In the ranking competition, participants were free to issue challenges, but they were only allowed to accept a challenge in an allocated amount of time, and cannot issue more challenges in that same time. In the challenge, the loser will instantly drop in ranking and and would unable to participate in other rounds to obtain a higher ranking, while the winner can instead continue to compete, but in the following round, he will exempted by one round.
“Xiao Yuan Ba, The Mountain River List Rules were long announced, it was your fault that you did not listen, who can you blame? Now that you have provoked Young Master Yan, hehe, let’s see how you die!”
“You are bold, but also a stupid dumb nut, what about it? You dare to mock Young Master Yan but dare not accept the challenge?”
“Such a coward! Bah!”
A few selection competition participants who wanted to fawn on Yan Yu all stood up and started to criticize XiaoYuan Ba, trying pressure him.
Xiao Yuan Ba’s face turned ugly, he was a man who spoke quickly without thinking, but he never expected himself to land in such a situation.
But he was merely startled, scared? He did not even know that word.
“Bah! Coward? Who the f*** said I am a coward? I am not afraid of what Yan to the Yu! Since I dare to speak, I dare to challenge! If you want to fight, then let’s fight, who’s afraid of you!”
Xiao Yuan Ba spat in his palms, rubbing his hands together, he pulled his hammers and walked up.
“I will make you pay for your arrogance.” Yan Yu revealed a sinister smile.
One of the four elders, a lady cultivator, stood up. She extended her old palm, drawing two halos in the air, the symbols in the halos moved, the words gently floating as though they were living creatures.
“Can the two participants come and choose your battle agreement.”
“The first type is a ‘sparring agreement’, agreeing to it is to agree to exchanging pointers, and not to harm each other, stopping after an allocated time.”
“Another type is a ‘fight to the death agreement’, agreeing to it is to agree to fight until one is dead, life or death does not matter, only when one is dead will the agreement be completed, please make your choice.”
“Since we are fighting, naturally it is the fight to the death agreement! Exchange pointers? Restraining of the arms and legs, naturally our strength will not be displayed.”
Yan Yu laughed, and directly walked to the halo with the fight to the death agreement, he then pressed his hand on it, then turned to look at Xiao Yuan Ba with provocation.
“Yuan Ba, don’t be rash, he is a seeded participant, and is very powerful! Choose the pointers agreement, according to the competition rules, as long as one person chooses the pointers agreement, then the competition will be about exchanging pointers, he will not dare to harm you!”
The spectators shouted anxiously.
However, Xiao Yuan Ba has long since been angered by Yan Yu’s provocation. He bellowed, then walked forward and smashed the fight to the death agreement with his fist.
In that moment, the pointers agreement crumbled, and the fight to the death agreement transformed into two golden liquid that flowed into the two person’s arms.
A strange scene occurred.
In the center of the Palace hall, a golden square frame appeared which continued to spin and then expand. After expanding, it suddenly blossomed out like a sun, and in the blink of an eye, it formed a golden absolute domain.
The domain separated the inside from the surroundings, and Su Yun who was on one side of the domain, was unable to feel the Qi of the person sitting opposite side from him.
Is this the battleground?
Su Yun looked at the domain carefully.
Suddenly, his entire body felt uneasy, as though someone was watching him carefully.
He looked around, and was amazed to see the two people in the corner who were looking at him.
One’s eyes were of passion, another harbored hatred.
They were from the Valkyrie Xiao Chuo and the Servant Xiao Xue.
(TN: Xiao Chuo is pronounced Cell Thrall, Xiao Xue is pronounced Sell Shred without the d. The difference is that Cell’s tone is going upwards, while Sell’s tone is going downwards, they are different Xiao(s). 1)Xiāo, 3)Xiǎo, 4)xiào. There is a second one, but I could not find the symbol for it.)
“Seems like I have been recognized.”
Su Yun secretly sighed.
But for now, I have no time to communicate with them, seeing how Yan Yu is doing things, I am afraid my battle with Profound Sky Sect will come rather quickly.
When the absolute domain appeared, there were more people entering the Sacred Palace in succession, but they were blocked by the absolute domain, and could only stand at the door and wait for the match to be over. Other than the participants, no one else were able to enter the domain.
Just then, Yan Yu leaped out, like a big bird, he gently floated into the domain, following that, he did a hooking action with his finger, provoking Xiao Yuan Ba to enter, causing his blood to boil.
“You don’t know what’s good for you!”
Xiao Yuan Ba roared, he carried his hammer and rushed into the domain.
“You will be dying in a few minutes, before you die, do you have words that you want to make clear?”
