Chapter 622: Sorry, I Didn’t Hold Back Enough and Injured You!
The situation on the stage was very clear. Jiang Leng had sunk into passiveness.
“What’s going on now?”
The audience didn’t understand. Why did Jiang Leng merely assume a defensive posture against Miao Rui?
Although he would be able to block temporarily, there was no way he would be able to channel enough strength if he didn’t use any techniques. He would be surrounded by perils.
“Jiang Leng, hit him!”
Ying Baiwu shouted loudly.
(Hehe, he won’t be able to do so!)
Miao Rui sneered in his heart. Right now, his confidence was off the charts. He trusted the ability of his amnesia jellyfish.
“Junior brother Jiang, the correct method of winning against me isn’t attacking me first. Rather, you should attack the amnesia jellyfish.”
Miao Rui guided.
Honestly speaking, this couldn’t be counted as Jiang Leng having misjudged the situation. Usually speaking, the close-combat strength of a spiritual controller would be incomparably weaker than their summons. After all, if their summons were weak, who the hell would want to spend time to subdue and train them?
However, Miao Rui’s amnesia jellyfish was actually the opposite. Its close-combat strength was extremely weak, but its long-range attack was extremely strong.
Given Jiang Leng’s speedy attacks, Miao Rui truly didn’t dare to be certain that he would be able to block all attacks if they were aimed at his jellyfish.
“However, it’s already too late to say anything now!”
Miao Rui revealed a smile and calmly pierced out with his sword. (I’ve won this battle, aiya, is this action handsome enough?)
As his sword pierced out, Miao Rui even had the mood to adjust his direction of attack to flaunt his pose. After all, only handsome guys would be able to get love from the girls!
However, at the instant the longsword pierced through Jiang Leng, his body vanished with a swishing sound.
Miao Rui was badly shocked. (How can you still use a cultivation art?) He also realized that there was a high possibility that Jiang Leng might appear behind him. Hence, he leaned forward and exerted force with his leg, wanting to avoid any attacks. Sadly, he was still too slow by half a beat.
It was as though Jiang Leng had performed instant teleportation. His shadow flashed and he appeared behind Miao Rui. After that, he ruthlessly stabbed his dagger at the back of Miao Rui’s head.
Miao Rui’s eyes rolled back and he directly fainted. Fresh blood flowed forth like a waterfall, moving down his throat and back, drenching his shirt.
Jiang Leng looked at the amnesia jellyfish.
Its tentacles were wavering. They instantly dropped down and it pressed itself onto the ground.
This was an indication of submission.
“The intelligence of this species of darkness is so high!”
Ying Baiwu was shocked. (You even know how to avoid calamity and seek fortune?)
“For such a rare yet non-extinct species of darkness to survive, it’s definitely no kind soul.”
From the mysterious species of darkness encyclopedia he had obtained from the system, Sun Mo knew that on the Darkness Continent, humans were not on the top of the food chain.
There were also some mysterious species of darkness that developed their own civilization.
“We admit defeat!”
Bai Shuang called out and jumped onto the stage, quickly going over to check up on Miao Rui’s injury.
“Teacher Bai, I acted in moderation!”
If it wasn’t for the fact that his teacher had headhunted Bai Shuang to the Central Province Academy to teach, Jiang Leng would absolutely not explain more given his personality.
Bai Shuang thanked him.
As expected, after Tong Yiming had just announced that Jiang Leng was the victor, Miao Rui woke up. He then gritted his teeth in pain.
He subconsciously touched the back of his head and felt blood on his hand.
Miao Rui who always liked to act as a gentleman cursed out loud. Luckily, it was the back of his head. If Jiang Leng hit his face instead, wouldn’t his appearance be damaged? How would he chase after girls in the future?
“Sorry, I didn’t hold back enough and injured you.”
Jiang Leng apologized.
When they heard this, Li Ziqi and Tantai Yutang burst out into laughter.
It was very rare for Jiang Leng to speak, but his toxic tongue skill wasn’t weak at all. He was able to ‘kill’ the moment he spoke. Evidently, he was doing so in reply to Miao Rui’s arrogance before the start of their battle.
Miao Rui’s countenance turned dark.
Bai Shuang spoke and rapped her hand on Miao Rui’s head.
Miao Rui screamed in agony and had a bitter look on his face. “Teacher, I’ve got an injury there. If you continue hitting my head I might become a retard!”
“In that case, do you still dare to brag in the future? Don’t assume that others cannot hear the underlying meaning of your words. I’ve long since said that you can be as arrogant as you want to only after you won. But before you win, you have to seriously treat every single opponent!”
Bai Shuang lectured, “Your greatest problem is that you assume with the amnesia jellyfish under your control, even if you cannot win, you won’t lose.”
“I was wrong!”
Miao Rui hurriedly apologized. After that, he looked at Jiang Leng and felt very curious. “Why didn’t you forget your cultivation art?”
Honestly speaking, Jiang Leng’s final strike scared Miao Rui. He felt as though Jiang Leng had really teleported.
Jiang Leng didn’t speak.
“Earlier, you pretended to lose your cultivation art and didn’t use any moves. Was that a battle strategy to lure me in?”
Miao Rui continued to ask. He had to make sure he got this answer. After all, the darkness ability of the amnesia jellyfish was his greatest reliance.
But now, it was ineffective when facing Jiang Leng.
Bai Shuang was also looking at Jiang Leng, waiting for his reply. She was also interested in this.
Jiang Leng shook his head.
Miao Rui’s lips twitched silently, musing that he would be a fool to trust Jiang Leng. His deadman face was just too badass.
“Do you know many types of cultivation arts then?”
Bai Shuang suddenly thought of a possibility. The lightning of the amnesia jellyfish had taken effect, but because the number of times Jiang Leng was hit was simply too little and the number of cultivation arts he knew was too many, he didn’t forget all of them.
Jiang Leng nodded.
“Is this true? You must be bragging, right?”
Miao Rui was shocked. According to his knowledge, Jiang Leng should have temporarily forgotten ten cultivation arts. (How old was this deadman face?)
(Did you start learning cultivation arts ever since you were in your mother’s womb?)
One must know that the flash had performed by Jiang Leng earlier definitely belonged to a top-graded art.
“There’s no solution to it, I have a good teacher!”
Jiang Leng turned his head and shrugged.
The gazes of everyone turned to Sun Mo and were filled with envy.
“It’s a reality now. The word ‘cripple’ on this youth’s forehead was engraved there for the sake of him acting cool and to lure people into complacency as part of his battle strategy!”
“That’s right. In the future, if we encounter people with the word ‘cripple’ on their faces, we must not believe any of them.”
“That has to depend on what is the word tattooed on their face. I feel that if someone has the word ‘love’* tattooed on their face, they should be a good person.”
The audience discussed fervently, but no matter what, this battle was extremely fascinating and they even saw a mysterious species of darkness.
“Teacher, I was lucky to not have disgraced you!”
Jiang Leng came back and reported to Sun Mo.
“Your excellence already made me speechless. I can only smile!”
Sun Mo felt very satisfied.
Jiang Leng was indeed one of his personal students that could make him feel at ease. Although he was very quiet usually and had a low sense of existence, if one was to say who was the most reliable among Sun Mo’s students, he was definitely it.
The deadman face, who always had no expression, actually revealed a bashful smile this time around.
(Being able to receive the recognition of Teacher feels really good!)
Favorable impression points from Jiang Leng +200. Respect (8,700/10,000).
“Teacher Sun, where did you obtain all this information from?”
Li Ruolan was curious.
Earlier, she noticed that even a few of the major characters on the judging panel clearly revealed focused expressions when they saw the amnesia jellyfish. Most probably, they had never seen it before. There was no need to mention the other great teachers. Everyone had been whispering to each other, discussing it.
Sun Mo’s words were concise and comprehensive.
Gu Xiuxun was unable to restrain her laughter.
Li Ruolan suddenly felt like smashing the image-recording stone in her hand into Sun Mo’s head. (No matter what, I’m a rank #11 beauty reporter on the Beauty Rankings, okay? I’m both talented and beautiful. Can it be that my charm is so low?)
“That Jiang Leng is so powerful!” Han Xi sighed. “If there’s no accident, the champion would probably be one of Sun Mo’s students!”
“Yeah, maybe all three of his students will take the top three!”
An examinee beside her involuntarily agreed when he heard this. Sun Mo’s personal students were truly so strong to the point where others could only feel envy.
“Teacher, I will defeat them for sure!”
Hua Jianmu didn’t want to see his teacher being disappointed and gave a guarantee.
“You should try your best to gain more experience for now. In the future, if you encounter them, you might be able to defeat them. But for this time around, just do your best and learn.”
Han Xi persuaded.
She knew Hua Jianmu’s personality, so she feared that he might really put his life on the line trying to win. If that was the case, he would be courting death.
After hearing this, Hua Jiamu’s expression stiffened as an indignant feeling appeared in his heart. He no longer spoke, but he clenched his fists with even more force.
“Teacher, just watch me. I will definitely defeat those geniuses and become the champion!”
At this moment, Hua Jianmu was brimming with confidence. Even the goddess of luck was on his side, allowing him to find the dawn potion that was extremely valuable and expensive. That was the best proof.
(This time around, I will become the most dotted son of heavens!)
The competition continued and not long later, it was Ying Baiwu’s turn. Her opponent was none other than Duan Qiao.
“The two of you, please exchange greetings!’
Tong Yiming reminded them.
Duan Qiao glanced at Fang Wuji who was below the stage and felt a little regret. But even so, he cleanly clasped his fist and spoke, “Student Ying, I forfeit!”
A commotion shook the entire scene. But some people realized what was happening because Duan Qiao was Fang Wuji’s personal student.
“There’s no need for this. I will defeat you!”
Ying Baiwu frowned. She didn’t need a charity like this.
Duan Qiao smiled and prepared to walk down the stage.
“Wait a minute!”
Sun Mo persuaded and then looked at Fang Wuji. “Teacher Fang, you have already forfeited once. There’s no need for your personal student to do the same, right? As a student, they wouldn’t have many opportunities to participate in such a great competition. If he gives up now, it will be too much of a pity. After all, who doesn’t wish to become the champion?”
After hearing Sun Mo’s words, loud sounds of discussion rang out from the crowd. After that, applause followed. Some of them even did a standing ovation.
Sun Mo’s character was truly flawless.
One must know that if his opponent forfeited, his personal students would be one step closer to becoming the champion. However, Sun Mo didn’t need this. He wanted Fang Wuji to consider more about his student instead.
This was the character all good teachers should have.
For a time, the waves of favorable impression points were like heavy rain from the sky, flooding his vision.
 Author making a reference to a character named Gaara (Manga: Naruto), he has the word ‘love’ tattooed on his forehead.
