“What?” A ten thousand square-meter wine cellar? It’s unheard of! How rich must he be? This is the break boss needs to get rich!
When the waiter returned, he brought along a shrewd-looking elder who seemed around sixty years old.
Distillate was almost pure alcohol. It could easily be used to light a fire. However, it was extremely good for Huo Yuhao, since it contained no impurities. He immediately made a high bid for all the distillate in the bar, and even pre-ordered another batch.
They left Gao Dalou in the bar. Huo Yuhao left him a note to set their next meeting. The bar would naturally take good care of him, since he was a friend of their newfound rich client.
Huo Yuhao had already controlled himself… he didn’t steal Gao Dalou’s carving knife.
Huo Yuhao and Wang Dong’er returned to the Ming Yue Hotel with more than a hundred kilos of distillate, but he didn’t drink it right away. After he returned, he immediately entered a cultivation state as he laid down flat. He activated all his soul power and cultivated the impurities and remaining alcohol within the liquor.
The Continental Elite Youth Soul Master Tournament had reached the round-robin stage, and the Tang Sect finally caught a breather after facing two consecutive tough opponents. They defeated the next four opponents they faced easily. With their immense abilities, they managed to make their way to the top of their group after winning six out of six matches. They had one foot in the quarterfinal.
Besides the Tang Sect, there was another team in their group that won all their matches... Shrek’s team! In the first five matches of this round-robin stage, they had snatched easy victories. Under Wang Qiu’er’s leadership, and with their extraordinary abilities, they managed to overcome the Clearjade Sect, too. It was also on that same day that the team and vice-team leaders, Cain and Xue Bing, were unfrozen.
However, the Tang Sect didn’t know that Cain disappeared after the Clearjade Sect was eliminated from the tournament…
The Tang Sect didn’t depart the venue after they easily won their sixth match. They sat in the VIP resting area, all of them with serious expressions on their faces.
The next match was the clash of the day. The most established two teams in the history of the tournament were about to fight against one another!
On one side was the Sun Moon Imperial Soul Engineering Academy, who had won four out of their first five matches under Xiao Hongchen and Meng Hongchen’s leadership. On the other side was Shrek, led by Wang Qiu’er!
For both parties, this fight wasn’t just about the qualifications for the next round. It was a life and death battle, a battle of glory!
The enmity between both academies was simply too deep. In this round-robin stage, the Sun Moon team had already lost to the Tang Sect. If they lost again, Shrek would advance with the Tang Sect into the quarterfinals. If they won, the Tang Sect and Shrek Academy would face off in the next match. The Tang Sect and the Sun Moon team would advance if the Tang Sect won. If the Tang Sect lost, all three teams would be tied on the number of wins, and points would be used to calculate which two teams would advance. While the Tang Sect had maintained a hundred percent record so far, their points weren’t very high because they kept on preparing themselves for the team fights. The point difference between Shrek’s team and the Sun Moon team was almost negligible, and the gap might be widened in this match.
The Sun Moon team had no other way out, they had to win this match. If they won, they could ensure their spot in the quarterfinals as long as they achieved a huge victory in the last match. The Sun Moon Imperial Soul Engineering Academy wanted the Tang Sect and Shrek’s team to fight one another for the other spot!
It was the same situation for Shrek Academy. As long as they defeated the Sun Moon team, they would definitely qualify with six victories in the bag. Whether they were going to be the winner or runners-up of their group would depend on their last match with the Tang Sect.
Wang Qiu’er slowly stood up. She didn’t walk towards the waiting area. Instead, she turned around and looked at her teammates.
“Do all of you remember what I mentioned yesterday?” she asked.
“Yes!” All of Shrek’s team members acknowledged her words. They sounded very excited, and the rest of the teams in the waiting area were drawn to them.
Not only were the spectators monitoring this match, even the rest of the teams were watching this match very closely! Shrek’s reputation was too well-established. The reputations of both academies meant that this faceoff between both teams was bound to be an extremely intense one!
Dai Huabin was closest to Wang Qiu’er. Right now, his eyes were burning as he looked at her. It was as if she were his idol, his enthusiasm was bordering on fanaticism!
It wasn’t just him. Everyone from Shrek recalled what Wang Qiu’er had said yesterday.
“Tomorrow, we are going to face the Sun Moon team. Do all of you know why the Tang Sect gave up against them in the earlier round, but fought them in the first match of the round-robin stage? Let me tell you! It’s because the Tang Sect was afraid that we would lose. They did their best to weaken the Sun Moon team and give us a greater chance.
“Tell me, do we need them to create this fighting chance for us?
“We came here for Shrek’s glory! If not for the fact that Shrek’s Seven Monsters are representing the Tang Sect, we would only be substitutes! During the last tournament, I wasn’t even at Shrek Academy yet! But I heard of their performance. They were only substitutes then! What happened? They brought back the title. Let me ask all of you... do all of you have the heart of a champion?
“We are members of Shrek, the glory of Shrek, and the radiance of Shrek. Our advancement will not arise because of anyone’s help, but our own abilities. Tomorrow, I’ll tear the skin off whoever dares to look down on us! Do all of you understand? We are not only going to show the Sun Moon team why we are strong; we are also going to show the Tang Sect that they can’t underestimate us! Let’s show them that we are champion material! We’ll win tomorrow’s fight! Shrek...will...win!”
Wang Qiu’er’s wild words were still ringing in the ears of every member of Shrek’s team. Her voice, which inspired their passion and excitement, raised their fighting spirits to unprecedented levels. So what if it was the Sun Moon Soul Engineering Academy? So what if it was the Tang Sect? They were representing Shrek Academy – a team that had never lost this tournament before! They were fighting for Shrek’s glory! Right now, they could finally chant this slogan in front of everyone!
Every time they thought of this, their auras would turn ferocious, and their fighting spirits were fired to the limit!
Wang Qiu’er saw the fire in everyone’s eyes and nodded. She said evenly, “Follow me.” After she finished speaking, she turned around and faced the stage. As she turned, her gaze met Huo Yuhao’s. As their gazes met, Huo Yuhao saw the look of perseverance in her eyes as she led Shrek’s team towards the stage.
What left everyone from the Tang Sect shocked was that Shrek’s team didn’t send out their standard seven members to compete. They switched their personnel in such a crucial match.
Wang Qiu’er was in front, while Dai Huabin, Zhu Lu, Ning Tian, and Cao Jinxuan followed behind. The last two weren’t Xie Huanyue and Wu Feng. They were Lan Susu and Lan Luoluo!
In terms of individual abilities, Lan Susu and Lan Luoluo were only some of the best in the outer courtyard of the academy! They only had four rings, and were only Soul Ancestors, they hadn’t made it into the inner courtyard yet. But Wang Qiu’er had chosen the two of them to compete in such an important match, and left out Wu Feng and Xie Huanyue, who were both in the inner courtyard.
Huo Yuhao was more shocked that Wu Feng didn’t pose any objections, even though she was such a proud character. He couldn’t see any dissatisfaction from her.
Impressive, Wang Qiu’er!, Huo Yuhao complimented her in his heart. He had to admit that Wang Qiu’er’s leadership skills were very strong, she was able to easily handle her bunch of tough and arrogant characters. He couldn’t claim that he was at her level.
On the other side, everyone from the Sun Moon team also entered the waiting area. Xiao Hongchen and Meng Hongchen looked very serious. To the two of them, this was also a life and death battle. Their clash against the Tang Sect had left them depleted, and they now had no choice but to use their substitutes. Even though Xiao Hongchen and Meng Hongchen were very strong, the overall ability of the Sun Moon team had dropped.
Very soon, both parties entered their respective waiting areas. The entire place also went silent. Xu Tianran had already arrived on the main stage. He was very excited for today’s fight, too. Yesterday, he had personally gone to visit the Sun Moon team, and promised them heavy rewards if they won this match. If they could win this match, Xu Tianran promised them the title. In the quarterfinals, they wouldn’t have to face the Tang Sect. That was because the Tang Sect could only face them in the final, and the Tang Sect’s next opponents included the Holy Ghost Sect!Previous Chapter Next Chapter
