Jian Zu really didn’t want Qian Jin Cai Yue to fight. She had a very powerful background; back in the days, someday had tried to kidnap her and in the end her enemies had been destroyed. The Celestial Pavilion of Enchantments was extremely cruel and merciless!
Therefore, Jian Zu didn’t want any of his people to fight against Qian Jin Cai Yue!
Qian Jin Cai Yue frowned and said unhappily, “I am already a student of the university. I am naturally qualified to participate in the Competition, right? Hey, are you afraid of me even though I’m a girl?” pouted Qian Jin Cai Yue, pulling a long face and staring at Jian Zu.
Jian Zu frowned again. He was losing face again…
After a long time, Jian Zu finally clenched his fists and shrugged. Who the disciple of the University of Stars and Clouds was didn’t really matter, actually. As long as he defeated Godly Ancestor Xing Yun, then that was the main thing.
“Alright, Miss Cai Yue, as long as you’re happy,” agreed Jian Zu, smiling indifferently. He was gradually feeling confident again.
“Sword Ancestors University, whom did you choose?” Jing Rui asked Jian Zu. Jian Xuan’s sword cultivation had been crippled by Lin Feng, so Sword Ancestors University only had three disciples left.
Among the three disciples, two had the strength of the top of the sixth Great Supreme God layer and one of the seventh. He chose the strongest of them.
“Jian Ding Tian, go!” Jian Zu shouted resolutely. The disciple he chose was a man in blue-green clothes. He had a short sword and the strength of the seventh Great Supreme God layer. He was Jian Xuan’s fellow disciple.
Jian Ding Tian landed in front of Qian Jin Cai Yue. Marrying Qian Jin Cai Yue was one of his dreams, so having her right in front of him made him feel as if he were in a dream. He was amazed that his goddess was in front of him.
He didn’t say anything, of course. He tried to pretend he felt cold-headed.
“Miss Cai Yue, I don’t want to fight against you. I would like to fight against Lin Feng. He crippled my fellow disciple’s sword cultivation, I need to avenge him. Please move away,” Jian Ding Tian requested.
All the members of Sword Ancestors University hated Lin Feng and wanted to make him pay. They wanted to cut him to pieces.
Lin Feng got ready to fight, but Qian Jin Cai Yue stretched out her hand and stopped him. Because of what had happened the previous evening, Lin Feng didn’t dare touch her again, so he withdrew.
Qian Jin Cai Yue glanced after him and grinned. Then she turned around and smiled at Jian Ding Tian icily, “Your opponent today is me. It’s the first fight I’m going to have for the University of Stars and Clouds, don’t ruin it!” she stated icily. She looked sinister and ice-cold, extremely sly and vicious.
Qian Jin Cai Yue clenched her fists and an ice-cold Qi emerged above the stage. The crowd at the foot of the stage was startled by the ice-cold energies; some of them staggered and nearly fell down.
Qian Jin Cai Yue had the strength of the sixth Great Supreme God layer, but her terrifying Qi was as powerful as the Qi of a cultivator of the seventh or even higher Great Supreme God layer. The crowd was seeing the University of Stars and Clouds, which used to be despised and scorned, rise!
Thanks to Lin Feng, the University of Stars and Clouds was in the top eight and qualified for the quarterfinals. Now Qian Jin Cai Yue was in the University of Stars and Clouds, and they had even higher chances of moving onto the higher ranks.
Jian Ding Tian watched her coldly. He really didn’t want to fight against Qian Jin Cai Yue, but he had no choice. Those were the rules. He could also give up, but he didn’t want to.
“Miss Cai Yue, be careful!” said Jian Ding Tian, grasping his sword. He charged her and turned into a ray of sword light. He thrust straight towards Qian Jin Cai Yue’s chest like a bullet.
When he attacked, all the disciples and guests at the foot of the stage glared at Jian Ding Tian in fury and hatred. Jian Ding Tian suddenly felt the pressure and was soaked in cold sweat.
He ground his teeth and continued moving towards Qian Jin Cai Yue as fast as he could.
Qian Jin Cai Yue’s expression didn’t change. She calmly watched the sword move towards her. At that moment it was half a cun away from her, she suddenly raised her hands and a seven-colored beam of light emerged from her hands and surrounded her.
Jian Ding Tian’s short sword reached her chest, but nothing happened, her top just tore a little. It didn’t reach her skin, so she wasn’t injured at all. Jian Ding Tian looked grim. He knew he had to fight seriously, or he would lose quickly!
“Heavenly Sword Transformation!”
He made a full rotation while brandishing his sword. A two-meter-wide circle appeared all around him, as if it were about to envelop the whole world. The light circle was trying to make all the Qi of the universe turn into sword Qi.
It was ice-cold, piercingly cold!
Lin Feng was startled. Jian Ding Tian’s attack was quite powerful. If Lin Feng had fought against Jian Ding Tian, he would have needed to use his full strength from the beginning to stand a chance of winning.
Jian Ding Tian was a young genius. He was much stronger than all the other pieces of trash!
Qian Jin Cai Yue was still standing there. The seven-colored light beam which emerged from her hands grew more and more dazzling. It was like a rainbow was trying to envelop her. Qian Jin Cai Yue’s expression had become quite stern after seeing Jian Ding Tian’s terrifying attack.
“Seven-colored World!” she shouted. The light danced around in the sky. It seemed like a part of her body, like an extra hand. It suddenly turned into a world, a seven-colored world, before it enveloped Jian Ding Tian’s sword energies.
Slash, slash, boom, boom!
The ground started shaking violently. The crowd at the foot of the stage was astonished, and their expressions changed drastically. They had just seen Jian Ding Tian’s sword energies get destroyed by the seven-colored world. In the end, they had melted!
After melting, the sword lights became a part of the seven-colored world. Time passed and another light beam appeared, but nobody noticed it because it was too faint.
Lin Feng sensed it very keenly. Qian Jin Cai Yue’s seven-colored world had absorbed the sword energies and now a new color had appeared. It was a new light beam, a new color. But Jian Ding Tian’s Qi was a bit weak, so he didn’t notice anything.
For Qian Jin Cai Yue this battle had already been very profitable; her body had reacted thanks to Jian Ding Tian’s sword lights.
Jian Ding Tian looked miserable, a rare occurrence. He couldn’t believe what had just happened. The seven-colored world attack had destroyed all his sword energies? It had absorbed everything, and even worse it had helped Qian Jin Cai Yue become stronger?!
His Qi was now extremely weak. If he hadn’t been leaning on his sword, he would have lost his balance and fallen down the stage.
When Jian Zu saw that, he closed his eyes. He was disappointed. Even though he knew how strong Qian Jin Cai Yue was, Jian Ding Tian was supposed to be at least as strong as her. But she had destroyed him as if they belonged to two different worlds.
Qian Jin Cai Yue looked and laughed at Jian Ding Tian. She hadn’t even used a real attack and Jian Ding Tian had already lost.
“You didn’t withstand two attacks. I won. Hehe!” said Qian Jin Cai Yue grinning in cruel scorn. She raised her left arm, the seven-colored light beam flared. Her Qi was even more bewitching.
There was an explosion. The light beam which emerged from Qian Jin Cai Yue’s left hand turned into an imaginary sword. It looked exactly the same as Jian Ding Tian’s sword.
A sword streaked across the sky! Blood splashed!
Her enemy couldn’t stand back up!
Qian Jin Cai Yue looked at Jian Ding Tian expressionlessly as he lay there on the stage. She then went back to Lin Feng.
“I’m Cai Yue, a beam of light!” tittered Qian Jin Cai Yue, pouting and looking at Lin Feng. She giggled and walked away.
Lin Feng was astonished. He knew he had to be careful now. Qian Jin Cai Yue was too strong!
If he had fought against Jian Ding Tian, even if he had used his full strength, he couldn’t have defeated Jian Ding Tian in four attacks, or using just a few attacks in general. But Qian Jin Cai Yue hadn’t used her full strength at the beginning, only for the last attack, and Jian Ding Tian had still suffered a crushing defeat.
She was Cai Yue, a beam of light! (Translator’s Note: Cai means rainbow colors, so she’s joking about her name and her attack)
What was wrong with Lin Feng? He took a deep breath and couldn’t calm down.
Lin Feng couldn’t believe it. Everybody else was astonished, too. They couldn’t believe their goddess of beauty could be so aggressive and violent. She had just crippled Jian Ding Tian’s sword cultivation with her last sword attack! He would never be able to practice sword cultivation again!
Jian Ding Tian and Jian Xuan had suffered the same fate, but it had been much worse for Jian Ding Tian. Qian Jin Cai Yue was a woman and Jian Ding Tian was a man, and he was the first young genius of Sword Ancestors University. He had suffered a crushing defeat to a woman, Qian Jin Cai Yue!
The atmosphere was completely silent.
Jian Zu looked glum and clenched his fists. He could now only rely on himself to win. He had to defeat Godly Ancestor Xing Yun to eliminate them.
