PMG Chapter 1634: End of the Second Round
After Hen Chang Tian, Si Man Nan and Ge Qing Feng finished their weapons. Even though it was difficult to say how strong someone could really become at their age, it was obvious that Hen Chang Tian and the three others had the most potential.
The crowd in the Yan Clan’s bleachers were smiling happily. They chatted with the strong cultivators from Sword Mountain. On the Mu Clan’s side, some people looked upset, while some only frowned. Only the leader of the Mu Clan looked indifferent, calm and serene. Nobody could guess what he was thinking.
“With that speed, they can probably finish in the top hundred this round, but they won’t rank in the top ten in the third round.” thought Mu Lin Xue’s uncle, looking at Lin Feng and Mu Lin Xue. At least he hoped Mu Lin Xue wouldn’t rank in the top ten in the next round.
More and more people managed to make level two weapons. The participants who weren’t done were getting more nervous. The ground would shake every now and then as cauldrons exploded. It was easy to make mistakes, especially under such pressure. Even some participants who were outstanding were so nervous that they made mistakes.
Some who failed tried again, but they had less time, so it was less likely they’d make it.
Since Yan Feng was already done making a level two imperial weapon, more people had turned to look at Lin Feng and Mu Lin Xue.
Mu Lin Xue and Lin Feng were still concentrating, nobody could distract them. Their movements were perfect, as if they had been coordinating with each other for a long time already. Lin Feng finally finished hammering the weapon, so now, Mu Lin Xue was putting on the finishing touches.
“Relax, everything will be fine.” said Lin Feng after he saw that Mu Lin Xue was sweating a lot. He whispered this in her ear while using his sleeve to wipe the sweat off her forehead.
Even though Mu Lin Xue was a genius, she hadn’t been through as much as Lin Feng in her life. That tournament was extremely important to her, more so than to Lin Feng. But she felt relieved to see Lin Feng so calm. She took a deep breath and continued.
At that moment, the Weapon Manufacturing Master in the golden-purple robe was sitting at the very top of the bleachers, in front of him were the three masters in golden-red clothes. One of them looked at Lin Feng and Mu Lin Xue and whispered, “This time Chang Tian is working by himself, and everybody noticed Yan Feng, but there are some discreet geniuses.”
With his experience and advanced age, he could see through some things. People who looked ordinary were often the strongest ones. Of course, that was not guaranteed.
“Who’s that?” asked a professor next to the one in golden red clothes. He was referring to Lin Feng and Mu Lin Xue.
“You mean that girl? I know her, she’s from the Mu Clan, and her name is Mu Lin Xue. She’s very talented from what I’ve heard. The little boy from the Yan Clan wants to marry her but she doesn’t want to.” replied another professor smiling indifferently. They didn’t know all the young people from Gold-Fire City, but they knew the most famous ones, including Mu Lin Xue.
“I’m not talking about her, I’m talking about the little boy next to her.” said the professor smiling. He was interested in Lin Feng. He had noticed how incredible Lin Feng’s deployment spells were, not having made any mistakes. Even though he looked ordinary, he could become an incredible deployment spell caster in the future. It was difficult to know how strong such people really were, but Lin Feng didn’t look nervous at all, he even cheered Mu Lin Xue up.
“I don’t know but he’s just Mu Lin Xue’s assistant. I don’t know if he’s a member of the Mu Clan or not, but do you think he’s that good? I can ask around for you.” said another professor, smiling.
“No need, I still want to watch him. What about you, buddy? Anyone worth watching?”
“Haha, it’s a secret!” said a professor laughing wholeheartedly.
“At the end of the tournament, I’ll also know who the strongest ones are, so if you say nothing now, you won’t be able to choose anyone then.” said the other one laughing.
“Fifty-six people are already done making level two imperial weapons. My fire isn’t powerful enough, I still need to improve it.” thought Mu Qing Ying.
“Done!” shouted Mu Lie extremely loudly. Mu Lie and Mu Yu raised their heads, they looked overjoyed. They had done it!
“Good!” Mu Lin Xue’s uncle stood up and shouted with joy. Mu Lie and Mu Yu were a great team, they were even better than Lin Feng and Mu Lin Xue. After the tournament, Mu Lie and Mu Yu would become the heroes of the Mu Clan.
Mu Lin Xue was calm with Lin Feng standing beside her. With him there, it was as if the outside world had nothing to do with her. She didn’t rush like most others.
Sixty-three people had succeeded and at that moment, Lin Feng and Mu Lin Xue’s imperial weapon rose up in the air. It was a sword. Mu Lin Xue smiled thinly. She didn’t even raise her head to look at the sword, she instead turned to Lin Feng and smiled thinly, but she didn’t look surprised though.
“Lin Feng!” said Mu Lin Xue. Lin Feng smiled, “You’re not going to thank me, right?”
“No, I’m just thinking, maybe we should make love at some point.” said Mu Lin Xue jokingly. With that, Lin Feng smiled wryly.
Hmph! Mu Lin Xue also smiled wryly after she saw that, she even stuck her tongue out.
“Sister Lin Xue, congratulations!” said Mu Qing Ying. She admired Mu Lin Xue. Even though she had given up during the second round, she felt even more determined after watching Mu Lin Xue.
“Someday, you’ll do it too.” said Mu Lin Xue, smiling at Mu Qing Ying. Mu Qing Ying nodded and looked at Lin Feng. He looked calm, as if they hadn’t worked so hard.
“It’s almost the end, you’ll definitely rank in the top ten Sister Lin Xue!” said Mu Qing Ying.
“Top ten?” Mu Lie groaned coldly and said, “You ranked sixty-four in the second round, how could you rank in the top ten you morons?”
Mu Lin Xue calmly glanced at Mu Lie, but said nothing. To her, Mu Lie and Mu Yu were insignificant.
“Hehe, Lin Xue, you’re soon going to join my clan soon!” said Yan Feng. Mu Lin Xue glanced at him mockingly, she didn’t even reply to him. No matter what he said, she despised him.
When the hundredth team rose up in the air, one of the professors in purple stood up and smiled, “Alright now, those who have been eliminated can move away.”
Many people then left. Very quickly, only a hundred people were left on the stage. The tournament was nearing its end!
