Choice Of Master (2)
Translator:EndlessFantasy TranslationEditor:EndlessFantasy Translation
Among all the defeated competitors were people from all three kingdoms. The people of the Celestial Kingdom chose to give up the fight willingly, as their competitor was the prince himself. There was nothing they could do but to give up.However, the same respect was not shown by the people of the Devil and Monster Kingdoms. After taking a few defeats, they joined hands and fought the duo together.
These people were no ordinary warriors. According to the ranking of the Celestial Kingdom, these opponents were at least Golden Immortals and above. Some had even achieved the level of a Mighty Immortal.
When these people worked together and raised the siege, it would become a rather difficult battle even for Gu Xijiu and Yun Yanli. Fortunately, the prince’s cultivation had reached the level of a Mighty Immortal. From the fight, Gu Xijiu also realized that her strength was sufficient, even in a foreign land. Her level of spiritual power was comparable to Yun Yanli’s, or probably higher.
In addition, her battle experience was an advantage. When the real fight began, she commanded many moves and saved Yun Yanli from making a lot of unnecessary mistakes.
In the beginning, Yun Yanli was not really sure if he should follow all of her commands, as he was worried that she might take him the wrong way. When he finally tasted the victory made possible under Gu Xijiu’s lead, he began to trust her completely.
Their excellent teamwork had eliminated dozens of competitors along their way. When they finally arrived at the valley, there were only seven or eight remaining teams.
Those teams were certainly made up of elite fighters; they were equally outstanding in both Kung Fu and strategy. Seemingly staged, all of them worked together and laid siege to the duo.
Apparently, the main reason behind their teamwork was to eliminate the powerful duo first; only then would they compete for the magic weapon among themselves.
Under the intense circumstance, both of them had to fight an extremely tough battle against 20 fighters, whose Kung Fu were well–matched.
Gu Xijiu made a prompt decision that she would be the one defending the competitors, while Yun Yanli would seize the window and pull the weapon out from the stone.The golden ruler could already be partly seen.
To his disappointment, Yun Yanli could not remove the ruler at all; it was like it had completely merged with the stone into one.
Yun Yanli’s strength was strong enough to lift an entire mountain with his spiritual power, but he could hardly pull the sword out.
He was unprepared for the sudden bounce from the power of the ruler. He snapped backward and almost cut himself under his opponent’s sword.
Luckily, Gu Xijiu was there to pull him back, preventing his flesh from being torn apart. The slight delay gave their opponents the opportunity to make a dash for the ruler.
Gu Xijiu was anxious. Quickly, she teleported and grabbed the ruler in her hand right away. She had obviously taken the lead. Others decided to give up their attack at Yun Yanli. Instead, they turned and launched their attacks simultaneously at Gu Xijiu.
Without having much thought, she exerted her strength and pulled the ruler out of the rock very easily. Under the gleaming golden light, all the weapons that were aimed at her were immediately shattered into pieces.
With a sword in his hand, Yun Yanli rushed to her side to help. Unfortunately, the ruler caused the same damage to his sword without taking any sides.
Most of the magic weapons would pick the masters of their choice. Obviously, Gu Xijiu was chosen to be the master of the golden ruler. It was best for others to give up hope of owning it.
Despite being unhappy about the result, they were willing to acknowledge their defeat. Since the magic weapon had already chosen its master, there was nothing else they could possibly gain from the place. Thus, all of them left immediately.
Gu Xijiu did not really like the golden ruler. She thought that it was too fancy and glamorous, so she preferred something modest.
