Jiang Chen suddenly realized that bringing Yan Chen Yu along with him was not the real problem. Big Yellow was the one who brought trouble... No matter where this cruel dog went, he would always become the center of attraction by instantly attracting haters everywhere. The next day! The sky was still dark, but Whirling Sun Square was already filled with people. Even though the square covered an area of more than 10 miles, it was still filled with people. The once a year Qi Province competition was Whirling Sun City’s biggest event, and it always garnered lots of attention. Boom! Boom! Boom! Boom! Following the beating of war drums, the previously noisy square immediately quieted down. The beating of the war drums signified the start of the competition. The war drums sounded out from all four corners of the square, each beat started out loud, but would gradually fade, shaking everyone on the spot. The war drums had been passed down since ancient times, and were a symbol of battle. At the battlegrounds, warriors who heard the war drums would immediately feel their blood start boiling. At all four sides of the Whirling Sun Square, there was a long and wide passage. On the top of each passage, a few giant words were written in gold. Above the East passage was, Black Sect. Above the West passage was Heavenly Sword Sect. Above the South passage was Burning Sky Pavilion. Above the North passage was Valley of Happiness. These were the designated passages for the four big sects. Even though the square was crowded with people, no one dared to get close to the passages. After all, no one wanted to do anything that could disrespect the four big sects, as they all knew that although this competition was called the Qi Province competition, it was actually a competition between the four big sects. “Look, the disciples of the four big sects are about to arrive!” Someone whispered. Following the beating of the war drums, some figures started emerging from all four passages. They were walking towards the Whirling Sun Square with proud expressions. Most people respected these disciples, while others envied them deeply. The disciples of the four big sects all walked with pride, some even had their eyes pointing towards the skies, expressing unprecedented arrogance. The respectful and envious looks made them feel satisfaction. Every single disciple who walked out from a passage was at the Mortal Core realm. Judging by their looks, the weakest one of them was at the Mid Mortal Core realm. The Early Mortal Core warriors didn’t even have a chance to participate in the competition, and the Mid Mortal Core warriors who were participating were amongst the best. Normal Mid Mortal Core warriors wouldn’t dare come here, as it would only serve to disgrace themselves. At the east side, where the Black Sect was, all of the disciples were wearing white robes, and on their chests wasan embossed golden [一] symbol, this was the Black Sect’s symbol. On the other side, the Heavenly Sword Sect disciples wore matching plain yellow robes with a short sword embossed on their chest. As for the Burning Sky Pavilion, they wore black robes and looked serious. The only difference here was the Valley of Happiness. The amount of disciples from the Valley of Happiness was only half of the the other sects , and the majority of them were girls. These girls were wearing a variety of colorful, patterned dresses. All of them were both sexy and seductive. Some female disciples even exposed parts of their bodies, wearing nothing but a thin transparent shirt. Their curves and sexy bodies could easily be seen. Which caused blood to start running out people’s noses as soon as they witnessed these girls. “Damn! Those chicks from the Valley of Happiness are really sexy! If I could spend a night with them, it would be worth any price!” “If you have the talent then you could just join the Valley of Happiness, then you would be able to sleep with them every single day!” “It’s not that simple, the Valley of Happiness focuses on mating cultivation, and it is considered an evil method! The requirements for the disciples is really strict, especially for the male disciples! I heard that you need to go through an assessment to test your compatibility with the mating cultivation, and it’s really hard to make them even consider you!” ………… When the girls from the Valley of Happiness appeared, they instantly attracted all eyes. Amongst the four big sects in the Qi Province, the Valley of Happiness had the least disciples, but their combined strength was not to be underestimated, especially their seduction skills, which were unparalleled under the sun. Besides, the female disciples from the Valley of Happiness are were very slutty, by using their seduction skills they managed to get a lot of support from the different powers, resulting in the Valley of Happiness having deep roots in the Qi Province. There were even some disciples from the other three sects who enjoyed affairs with the disciples of the Valley of Happiness. “Every one of those girls are sluts! I’ll make them all my human pets sooner or later, kaka!” Big Yellow was laughing out loudly. Those who were near him instantly got frightened. They walked away from him and kept a distance of at least 1 meter. This dog was really cheap, how dare he say that he will make all disciples from the Valley of Happiness his human pets? Standing near this dog might get them in trouble. “Damn dog, no one would think you were stupid if you just keep your mouth shut!” Jiang Chen was speechless. “Mind your own business, get lost!” Big Yellow didn’t show any respect. “Look, that’s the Little Devil King from the Black Sect!” someone shouted. Upon hearing this, many people shifted their gazes towards the direction of the Black Sect. Jiang Chen also turned his gaze, and he saw the last man to come out of the passage. That man wearing a blue robe, looking handsome and suave, was none other than the Little Devil King Han Yan who had helped him in the Silver Moon Restaurant. All other disciples from the Black Sect were wearing white robes, he was the only person wearing a blue one. It could be considered a special case considering the fact that he was famous even amongst the other geniuses. “This Little Devil King is a rare genius from the Black Sect, and his potential is even greater than Guan Yi Yun’s! His future achievements are definitely going to be far above Guan Yi Yun’s. I heard that he has the bloodline of an ancient devil in his body! Once his bloodline is awakened, he will become really terrifying!” “The Little Devil King will most likely get first place this time!” The appearance of the Little Devil King caused some turmoil at the scene, this was the aura of a genius, no matter where he went, he would immediately be the center of attraction. “Look! Li Wu Shuang from the Heavenly Sword Sect is here as well! Looks like this time he’s the only one who can compete with the Little Devil King.” Someone pointed at the last young man who was wearing a yellow robe that came out from the passage belonging to the Heavenly Sword Sect. The man resembled an iron tower, and he was emitting an aura of explosive strength. “This Li Wu Shuang is not a simple man, I’ve heard that he went into a Combat Soul warrior’s secret realm and obtained some great skills from that Combat Soul warrior! His strength is terrifying, his body is even comparable to demon beasts, really terrifying!” “Li Wu Shuang is really terrifying! Receiving skills from a Combat Soul warrior? That’s extremely fortunate! There isn't even a single Combat Soul warrior in the entire Qi Province!” “Ling Ao from the Burning Sky Pavilion and Yi Qing Zi from the Valley of Happiness are here as well! Both of them are the strongest outer circle disciples of their respective sects! They also have the abilities to fight with the Little Devil King and Li Wu Shuang, but their chances of winning are lower.” “It’s hard to predict what will happen! A lot of things have changed this year, no one can guess the final results. Don’t forget, during the inner circle competition, Nan Bei Chao who appeared out from nowhere won!” “That’s true, Nan Bei Chao was a dark horse… I wonder if another dark horse will appear in today’s outer circle competition, if there is one, then this will truly become exciting!” ………… Discussions were everywhere, everyone was focused on the Little Devil King Han Yan, Li Wu Shuang, Ling Ao and Yi Qing Zi. Each of the four big sects had their own representatives, and these four disciples were the most obvious ones. If nothing special happened then the top 4 spots would go to these 4 disciples. Jiang Chen roughly counted in his head. The Black Sect, Heavenly Sword Sect and Burning Sky Pavilion each had nearly 200 disciples each participating today. The Valley of Happiness had less , with about 70-80 of them. Although the Qi Province was the smallest province on the Eastern Continent, it was still a huge and diverse land, with geniuses everywhere. In each of these big sects, there were more than ten thousand disciples, and most of them were outer circle disciples at the Mortal Core realm. Of those who came to participate in this event, many of them were only here to gain experience. A competition with more than 700 participants, and only 30 of them being able to advance to the second round… The rate of elimination was just too high. All the disciples from the four big sects were walking towards the center of the square in their own groups. They all stopped next to the Stairway to Heaven. Boom! Boom! Boom! … The beating of war drums was getting more rapid, many people were holding their breath. They all knew that four Late Heavenly Core warriors were about to appear on top of the Stairway to Heaven and release their auras. Four figures flew in like meteors from four different directions and landed on top of the Stairway to Heaven. When the crowds saw their faces they almost jumped up from the ground, they were startled with their mouths wide open. Because, these for people were not like those from the previous year. Last year they were all elders from the four big sects. The four people on top of the Stairway to Heaven were three men and a woman, and they were all young. “Heavens! It’s them who is responsible for handling the assessment this year?!” “Damn, aren’t these the top 4 from the inner circle competition? Guan Yi Yun from the Black Sect, Liang Xiao from the Heavenly Sword Sect, Bai Hua Die from the Valley of Happiness… Even Nan Bei Chao from the Burning Sky Pavilion is here!” “That’s Nan Bei Chao? he is so young! He really is a rare genius! Being able to witness their faces with my own eyes really made the trip here worth it!” ………… With the arrival of the four big geniuses, the scene immediately got heated. There were a lot of people among the crowd who had missed the inner circle competition, and felt disappointed for not being able to witness the dark horse themselves. But, they never expected that they would have a chance to see him in person today. Jiang Chen’s vision stopped at the top of the Stairway to Heaven as well. The charm of these four geniuses was really extraordinary. Guan Yi Yun and Liang Xiao could be considered be normal. However, Nan Bei Chao who was wearing a golden robe, with his long blonde hair waving in the wind, and his sharp facial features making him look mighty, unleashed the aura of a superior person. Even Jiang Chen who was once the greatest Saint in the world couldn’t help but nod his head in approval. “This man is talented. Compared to those geniuses in the Divine Continent, he is not inferior to them in the least. I didn’t expect this small Qi Province to have such a man!” Jiang Chen thought to himself. The natural energies automatically surrounded Nan Bei Chao, this clearly showed that he was someone with a great destiny. By comparison, Guan Yi Yun and the other two were just ordinary. An upward curve appeared on Jiang Chen’s lips. His hot blood started boiling. Initially he had no interest in the Qi Province, but he had never expected to meet someone like Nan Bei Chao. This instantly ignited Jiang Chen’s fighting spirit. Nan Bei Chao stood in the middle of the Stairway to Heaven’s top; obviously, this group was being led by him. He casually raised his hand, then the beating of the war drums immediately stopped. “I won’t explain the rules for the first round. As usual, we only need the top 30. As for the rewards for this year’s competition, I won’t announce it now. Let’s begin.” Nan Bei Chao said casually as if he was a king giving out an order, giving off a feeling of someone who can’t be reached.
