A note from TheCrow

Yeah, couldn't find a suitable title so I just put that one... *sigh*

 I would appreciate if you point out the mistakes you find so I can fix them.

"It seems the guest you invited is actually not bad, Senior Bai."

Meyzu said that while having a smug look on his face, the disgrace he suffered earlier was returned when he saw Arthur's body sent flying out of the arena. 

"Indeed, Senior Bai, that young man has a promising future, for him to cause Yun to be in such a miserable state is a great feat."

Kilan, who was supposed to side with his Race, praised Arthur and completely disregarded Yun for he didn't care about Yun a lot, what he cared about most right now is appealing to Bai Lingyue and possibly gain a favor or two."

He showed his usual friendly smile as he gazed at Arthur, who slowly stood up and went to the table he was sitting at previously.

Bai Lingyue didn't comment on this as his eyes were fixated on Arthur, who was making his way to his seat. He didn't appear depressed about Arthur's lost as his(Arthur's) face was expressionless without regret or unwillingness.

"Ha ha ha, I told you to back off earlier but you didn't heed my warnings, serves you right! It's for the strong people to fight and not weaklings like you."

Yun's mocking voice rang in the silent garden, he looked at Arthur with eyes full of contempt and sneering. Although he was saying that, his appearance didn't look that good to be honest. With wounds all over his body and most of his robe ripped apart from the thunder explosions, his exterior appearance couldn't be worse.

With Zodaik's black robe covering his body and head, Arthur silently sat on the chair and didn't speak a word, after a few seconds, he grabbed a piece of meat and stuffed ii in his mouth, he chewed slowly and the chewing sound could be heard as no one spoke and merely stared at him.

"Ha ha ha, he is an odd entity, although he lost, he is so calm. I wonder if you could introduce me to him?"

Granny Shishu had an interest in Arthur when she saw his skills with lightning. Despite being only basic lightning, he used it in so many manners and his prowess with it is unbelievable. 

Her relationship with Bai Lingyue was very close so she rarely called him 'Senior' like the others as she was older than him and they were close friends. If he could introduce Arthur to her and this junior accepts joining her clan, it'll be beneficial to her. 

"Would you believe me if I said I never talked to him or met him?"

With some kind of strange technique that allowed Bai Lingyue to speak with Shishu telepathically, he transmitted that to her with some a curious and surprised tone.

Granny Shishu frowned when she heard that, she didn't maintain her frown as to not alert the others and replied to him

"You do not know him? Then how come you said you invited him?"

"It seems the guest you invited is actually not bad, Senior Bai."

Meyzu said that while having a smug look on his face, the disgrace he suffered earlier was returned when he saw Arthur's body sent flying out of the arena.

"Indeed, Senior Bai, that young man has a promising future, for him to cause Yun to be in such a miserable state is a great feat."

Granny Shishu frowned when she heard that, she didn't maintain her frown as to not alert the others and replied to him

"You do not know him? Then how come you said you invited him?"

She knew him for a long time and he would not casually things like that, especially to help or protect a total stranger.

"It's true, today is the first time I see him, however, that woman with the mask is the one I invited, she was supposed to be with a man but apparently he did not come such a shame."

The sharp eyes of the old woman shifted from Azure Bai to Lucy, who was calmly sitting at a table in the area designed for experts and clan masters. She was sitting alone and wearing a simple dress and her appearance was average, or so the people thought but she had a stunning beauty under that mask. Shishu saw the silver hair and the real face of Lucy but she wasn't that surprised.

In high-Realms, beauties were everywhere, when women reach a high-realm, they can practice techniques that allow them to maintain their youth. There is treasures and ancient items that could do as well. Even Shishu used it back then but she aged after a long time passed as she didn't break through for a very long time which made her body age as well.

"Does they come from a high-Realm? That boy has a perfect control over the Lightning, it's even better than 'Miya'."

"Even I do not know what their origin is, I met them at the Treasure Pavillon and we became friends then. I didn't see them fight but even without that they had many... many unique and special things about them."

Bai Lingyue didn't say any details but just from the way he spoke, you know he gave them a high evaluation which surprised granny Shishu.

"Anyways, it is quite unfortunate that the boy lost, I guess the opponent was a bit too much for him to handle."

Listening to her, Bai pondered about the last battle as was unsure of what happened, after remaining silent for a period of time, he spoke telepathically to her again.

"About that.... he should have won, I'm not sure if controlling Lightning like that consumes his Nether Energy at a very fast pace or if it's another thing, but I'm sure he could have won but...."

"But what?"

"... But he didn't. It's whether he purposely lost or he has a very weak defense to not withstand even a simple punch."

Bai Lingyue put his hand on his chin and continued thinking about the fight while gazing at Arthur's figure. He simply couldn't believe that his assumptions are incorrect as he was never wrong to this degree. Unfortunately, the truth layed before his very eyes.

...

Yun sat cross-legged and recuperated some of his energy, the last battle was tough for him as Arthur was not some weakling, he only mocked him like that to not appear weak, he wanted to maintain his oppressive and arrogant attitude to display his might in front of the old ones.

After spending 15 minutes recovering and using some expensive Healing Potions he had in his storage, Yun changed his robe and wore another one which was exactly the same.

As he finished readying himself, he did not descend from the arena but looked at the top geniuses left from each faction, his gaze only focused the five of them.

One was the other genius of the Monster Race, the lich from the Undead Race and the three youths from the three clan alliance.

"I wonder if this Young Miss is free to exchange some pointers with me?"

Yun was gazing at the green-haired girl from the Lightning Fox Clan, he didn't recover fully but he could still fight so he chose his next opponent by challenging her.

Miya, who was silently sitting at a table with her friends was a bit startled to be picked first, however, she didn't show it on her face.

With a gentle smile, she nodded at Yun and said

"If Young Master Yun is fine with me then I would be glad to exchange some pointers with you."

As she said that, she got up from her seat and slowly floated toward the arena. She was like a fairy as her long robe fluttered by the passing wind. She had a serene and calm face and held a soft and long white saber.

Her floating seemed slow but she arrived on the arrived in the blink of an eye. Seeing that she already unsheathed her saber from its scabbard, Yun took a fighting stance and said

"Whenever Miss Miya is ready."

Her only reply to him was a quick dash to his direction, purple lightning twirled around her saber but it appeared to be calm and not raging like the normal nature of any lightning.

Miya's speed was incredible as few spectators couldn't keep up and only saw a purple blur rush at Yun. Seeing the enemy coming at him, Yun punched the air with his gauntlets which created a tremor through the whole arena but didn't cause any actual damage.

No golden light appeared like earlier, not even the golden seal was present, it was only a simple but terrific punch. The wind twisted where the gauntlet punched and a horrifying outburst of wind compressing was created from the punch. It looked like the air was twisting from afar, even the incoming purple snake created by Miya's slash was sucked in the twisting wind.

The calm Miya retreated hastily when she saw that, she didn't dare get near it as she felt imminent danger from it.

No explosion happened, after twisting for a bit, the wind returned to its usual calmness and what was left was the figure of Yun punching the air. After blocking Miya's attack, Yun jumped toward her with a speed equal to hers.

Being the genius she is, it took her only a split second to recover from that powerful attack of his. Purple lightning appeared all around her body and even strands of her hair turned purple.

'bzzt' 'bzzt'

Lightning sounds rang out in the arena and soon, a 2-meter purple lightning snake twirled its body around Miya's. It hissed at the incoming Yun. Once he was close to it, it spat a huge purple lightning ball which flew at Yun with insane speed, he couldn't react in time at it was already upon him in a split second.

In such a desperate situation, he lifted both of his gauntlets to defend against the lightning ball but unfortunately, it was futile as the lightning ball sent his body flying high in the air and it quickly invaded his body.

Seeing that he was severely injured by the ball and falling to the ground with blood gushing out of a grievous wound created by the lightning ball. Yun bit his tongue to remain conscious and shifted from falling to crazily flying to Miya.

She presumed the fight ended and was about to call the snake back when she suddenly noticed the crazed Yun fly toward her. She panicked as it was only a spar and there is no need to injure him any further or he would die, however, seeing that there was no choice, she lifted her white saber vertically and pushed the tip of it on the arena's ground.

Once that happened, the snake turned into a huge purple lightning net that circled above her and formed a huge lightning sphere similar to a net that covered her and Yun.

Of course, this did nothing to him apart from imprisoning him inside it but he could care less about that, with a roar Yun punched out again at Miya when he was only a couple of meters away from her.

The moment he punched out, the purple lightning compressed in an unbelievable speed and struck his back, the golden robe he was wearing burned and he was pushed on the ground making his punch useless as his gauntlets hit the ground just like he did.

While groaning, Yun struggled to stand up but the purple net was pressing against him so he could not retaliate.

Seeing his desperate tries, Miya sighed and approached him, she squatted and softly shook her head as if indicating for him to stop but she was surprised to see him show a smirk once she squatted near him.

She didn't know but she felt danger, the purple net that was containing him suddenly enveloped him and threw him outside of the arena, making his body all bloody.

...

Seeing this scene, Lucy who was quietly sitting alone took out a talisman from her storage and secretly slammed it under the table. Although she intended not to alert anyone, her actions were instantly seen by Bai Lingyue, who was keeping a close attention to the fight and her at the same time.

He didn't what the talisman did and was curious about why she was doing, he didn't say anything and remained silent while frowning. No one knew what he was thinking as he gazed at her and the talisman stuck on the table.

Miya remained silent but a bit startled by that grin of Yun, maybe it was disgust or her instinct telling her to retreat, fortunately, she reacted before he did anything and sent him flying away from her.

Unlike the previous matches, she didn't remain on the arena and returned to her table, she didn't want to show off and would only fight when her name was called.

People from clan were cheering for her and the Monster Race was feeling a bit gloomy seeing what happened, they were angry but could not vent their frustration as Yun lost fair and square. They were only a bit angry for she didn't need to injure him this much, especially the last attack, it was too vicious for a fairy like her.

No fights continued and after resting for thirty minutes, the white-haired youth from the Monster Race walked up the stage and challenged the lich.

This was a fight everyone was excited to see, their attention was fully focused on the fight as the lich summoned some powerful specters that are tough to deal with. These decayed and creepy looking monsters that floated around the lich and damaged the white-haired youth from afar were quite annoying to deal with.

The youth surprisingly used a big red bow that shot magical arrows filled with a destructive and unique fire.

Fire and Thunder are considered the weakness of all evil, including the specters, so when he continuously shot the almost invisible arrows from that bow, specters were falling left and right.

The crow of spectators was cheering for both parties and the battle reached its climax after a few minutes.

At such a time, Arthur, who was silently eating some meat for a while ago finally made a move. His body floated close to where Lissandra and the 7 strong figures were sitting. He didn't float too high to not attract attention.

Although he wished not to be spotted, his action was seen by the 7 seven figures, who unlike the others, still paid attention to the surroundings, especially Azure Bai who was intrigued on why Arthur approached them slowly as if he was trying to sneak.

Meyzu, who was displeased with Arthur since the beginning had enough of it and glared angrily at the incoming Arthur, he waved his hand as if getting rid of a bug and said

"Wh---"

Before he could finish, Arthur did something that made him swallow back his words. Countless cylindrical objects appeared around him, they were grey and green in color and had some weird words on them. There was a mind-boggling amount of them as they fell from the air.

Meyzu didn't expect Arthur to do that, he didn't what they were but just doing this was disrespectful to them so he was planning to punish Arthur no what happens, after what he did, not even Bai Lingyue can help him leave unscathed.

Contrary to what the others thought, this was totally intentional by Arthur, he was grinning under the black robe as countless objects were taken out of his storage ring
