Chapter 378: This King has been targeted!

“Thank you for buying This King three seconds. It doesn’t matter if This King managed to defeat Leonis, nor does it matter if it was a one-shot. Most importantly, we never took a step back.”

When the three people heard this, they smiled and felt their hearts turn slightly warm.

Liu Yu said with a laugh, “Congratulations for defeating Leonis and becoming the champion of the Braveheart Martial Arts Tournament. You have become the fifth trial-taker that managed to clear the seventh level in the history of mankind!”

Pulp Farmer said with a praise, “Shi Xiaobai, I am not even won over by Speechless Li, but today, you have won me over. No wonder Sunless likes you to even ignore her own way of the sword. You are indeed very excellent.”

Feng Yuanlin said, “Boss Shi Xiaobai, regardless of the case, I’m definitely viewing you as my boss. Please take me in as a cheap lackey! Haha, to one-shot Leonis in his fourth form. Regardless if it’s true or not, it will definitely become the fifth legendary story once it spreads out of the Nine Revolutions Transcendental Tower. Furthermore, you have done so many deeds in the Nine Revolutions Transcendental Tower. Your reputation among the rookies must have exceeded Speechless. Hehe, you could definitely even become a celebrity hero in the future. When the time comes, I’ll be a lackey of a celebrity hero. That would be sweet!”

The three looked rather excited. A land of trials at the Psionic Mortal Realm was nothing much, but the Nine Revolutions Transcendental Tower was different. This land of trials was related to the four famous legendary figures, and happened to tie in with the four ages of humanity.

Overlord Ji Feng began the warring ages. There were frequent wars, with skirmishes between countless countries, all because of Overlord Ji Feng.

And later, Sword Immortal Xu Taibai began the age of the sword. Wars were no longer fought between armies. Because of his appearance, it became a fight between the strong. The strongest person of a country would spar, directly deciding the allocation and distribution of land and resources!

As for the Conquest King’s appearance, he ended the ages of the sword and warring ages. This was because the Conquest King had nearly conquered the entire world. A massive country was established, putting an end to war. Weak countries could only tremble in fear. At that time, there was a temporary peace.

And after the Conquest King became the Original Sin of Calamity, the world fell back into chaos. As time went by, there were more and more alien species and biological creatures from other worlds that invaded humanity. It resulted in the theme to become—survival!

Only after the Hero King’s appearance, with him single-handedly establishing the hero system, creating the strongest age of humanity that was struggling to survive that lasted for thousands of years. As such, it was currently the Age of Heroes!

These four legendary figures had legendary stories could not even be described using several thick compendiums. However, they all had a common point. They had cleared the Nine Revolutions Transcendental Tower’s seventh level at the Psionic Mortal Realm. Furthermore, only the four of them had managed to clear it!

It was apparent that the four legendary figures had already revealed talent and strength that exceeded their peers when they were at their weakest stage in life.

As a result, the worth of the Nine Revolutions Transcendental Tower might have been a coincidence, but it made it different!

As people were good at finding patterns, there was talk that when the fifth trial-taker that cleared the seventh level of the Nine Revolutions Transcendental Tower would appear, humanity’s fifth age would not be far!

By placing the glorious term ‘age’ on a rookie sounded forced regardless of how one looked at it, but the stories of the four legendary figures left behind such a possibility, allowing people to choose to believe in it.

No one had managed to do it for thousands of years.

But Shi Xiaobai had managed to do it!

If it were anyone else, they would be extremely thrilled because it meant a limitless bright future. It would bring attention from the entire country, or even the entire world, but Shi Xiaobai clearly did not know the meaning behind this. Even if he knew, he would not be overly excited.

Compared to the excitement Pulp Farmer and company were feeling, Shi Xiaobai was much calmer. His eyes even revealed a hint of sadness.

Liu Yu asked curiously, “Benefactor Shi Xiaobai, you don’t look especially happy?”

Shi Xiaobai gave a helpless smile. He obviously could not feel happy. He did not plan on participating in the Braveheart Martial Arts Tournament, and defeating Leonis to become champion was never in his plans.

Shi Xiaobai sighed and said, “There’s something that This King needs to ask of you. This King and Sunless had arranged to meet in the seventh level, but from the looks of it, This King will probably have to go first. If you were to meet her later, please explain the situation for This King. Remember to tell her not to force herself to reach the eighth level. We shall meet outside the trial.”

Shi Xiaobai was a person who thought extremely highly of his promises. Furthermore, he understood Sunless’ personality. If she did not meet him in the seventh level, Sunless would keep waiting. Although it was unknown how long she could last in the land of the trials, she would definitely stay till the final moment.

Sunless was a sword fanatic as well as a path fanatic. She would walk a single path and never make any turns.

Pulp Farmer and company nodded their heads solemnly. Shi Xiaobai had protected Sunless in the fifth level and all three of them were present. They knew the reason why Shi Xiaobai made such a promise back then, and knew the effects of such a promise.

At this moment, Feng Yuanlin suddenly thought of a strange question and asked, “Eh? Didn’t Boss Shi Xiaobai defeat Leonis? Why hasn’t he been sent to the eighth level?”

With this said, the rest were lost.

Liu Yu thought for a moment and said, “Maybe becoming the tournament’s champion is the true trigger condition? The tournament’s organizing committee has yet to officially announce that Benefactor Shi Xiaobai is the champion of the tournament. In the morning tomorrow, it will be announced and with Benefactor Shi Xiaobai’s status as champion decided, only then would everything be set in stone.”

This explanation sounded like the most reasonable explanation at that moment.

A few people found it suspicious but did not put it to heart. In fact, defeating Leonis should have been considered clearing the level. Now, it was probably just following the necessary process.

The next morning, the announcement of the tournament’s champion was made. A few Transcendent officials personally brought the champion trophy to Shi Xiaobai and company’s resting place.

But after a few hours, Shi Xiaobai was still not sent to the eighth level.

Liu Yu frowned. “What happened? Benefactor Shi Xiaobai has defeated Leonis. It was witnessed by This Penniless Priest. His status as champion has been confirmed, but why hasn’t he cleared the level?”

Pulp Farmer and Feng Yuanlin frowned deeply as well, unable to comprehend the situation.

However, Shi Xiaobai gave a relieved smile. Last night, he already had a guess, and now, the situation was confirming his guess!

Shi Xiaobai whispered, “The reason is simple. The condition to clearing the level is to gain the approval of the assessment program. If This King isn’t wrong, This King has been targeted by the assessment program!”

  1. Looks like he is doing everything the others did before he goes up. Maybe even something that none of them did. I only hope the rest of the stories are not as long-winded as this one. The author needs to improve his pacing.

    1. He spends so long setting up face slaps that fights take 20 chapters instead of 2… hes been in this tower for 170 chapters already…

  2. “A few people found it suspicious but did not put it to heart.” A few? With SXB they are 4 witch is a few, so did they all or did one or two find it suspicious? Why wright a few at this moment when there is only 4 character gatherd?
