881 One Against Six!
The six masked Spirits were the petal, the white, the black, the fire phoenix, the swordsman, and the Flame Spirit. Seeing them standing in the air all at the same time, many people who had wanted to join the competition hesitated. More than half of them really did not need to join at all, since they would in no way get the title.
However, it was their ambition to trade blows with strong people and to present themselves before so many people. That being said, as more and more participants died, many of them started to ask themselves whether it was worth doing. Some of those who had already gained golden-word titles were satisfied, so they did not have the intention to join again.
However, they were also afraid they would be thought weak and timid. In this way, they looked toward Jiang Chen. Jiang Chen became the center of attention. People only cared about one thing — whether he would go into the arena. The title Future Sword Venerable was quite great for the human race. It was not inferior to Sky Dominator at all.
However, taking his way of doing things into consideration, if he flinched at such a crucial moment, people would laugh at him, especially the Spirits. Most Spirits hoped Jiang Chen would fight and get killed. In the human race, even Ning Haotian and Jiang Zhe could not help Jiang Chen. Not to mention the six Spiritual Sons and Ladies.
"Jiang Chen, don't go," Zhou Jianfeng said.
The Icy Spirit and the Cliff Mountain did not want Jiang Chen to take the risk, either, since the situation was quite unfair for him.
"Jiang Chen, admit you're a coward, and just forget it."
"Yeah. Aren't you always claiming you are strong? Then why do you flinch at such a crucial moment?"
"Stop putting on airs. All you can do before the Spirit is to bow down at our feet!"
"Go back to dominate the human race. Don't make a fool of yourself here!"
Sarcastic comments were coming from everywhere. It was sad that these remarks were not only coming from the Spirits, but also from the human race. Men's minds are unpredictable. Some people were jealous of Jiang Chen, since he had become quite famous. They wished he would fail as soon as possible. Some people just secretly feel good when others fail.
"You're so noisy," Jiang Chen said in a low voice. Suddenly, everyone went quiet in order to hear what he was saying.
"You'll be disappointed." Jiang Chen flew into the air and entered the arena as he spoke.
In this way, there were seven competitors in the air. The six masked Spirits and Jiang Chen.
"Stop looking at me in this way." Jiang Chen perceived the six masked Spirits' gazes behind their masks. One of them seemed quite unfriendly. Certainly, it was from the Fire Spirit's Spiritual Son.
Then, all of a sudden, another two participants from the human race, who were as brilliant as Jiang Chen, came up into the air. They were Ning Haotian and Jiang Zhe.
"Jiang Chen, how dare you." By then Jiang Zhe felt he had seen Jiang Chen's tragic destiny. He was quite complacent.
"I gave up the title Sky Dominator to go all-out to kill you!" Ning Haotian said.
People's assumptions were confirmed. He had held back.
"What a pity. I'm alone. Now all of you will have the chance to kill me."
Sizing up the eight people before him, Jiang Chen said, "Are you going to make a queue or should we play Rock, Paper, Scissors?"
He was much more optimistic than people had thought possible. He knew what kind of situation he was in. He was not in the arena because he had been goaded. Actually, Jiang Chen had made up his mind as soon as the four golden words had appeared. No matter what the title was, he would have competed for it. He knew it would be very difficult. It could be the most dangerous situation he had ever run into in his life.
Besides the six masked Spirits, Ning Haotian and Jiang Zhe were also very strong.
"Stay out of this." The masked Spirit who had gotten the title Future Spirit Emperor suddenly said to the others. In this way, those who were still hesitating had to give up.
"Don't worry about me." Jiang Chen also stopped his friends from joining. He did not want to see them push themselves too hard. A fight of such a high level was very dangerous.
In the end, only nine competitors would compete for the title Invincible God of War. They were six Spirits and three humans.
"Jiang Chen, don't be so proud," the Future Spirit Emperor said. He did not think Jiang Chen would be the star of this fight.Find authorized novels in Webnovel，faster updates, better experience，Please click for visiting.
"Eliminate the humans first," the Future Spirit Emperor added.
"You think you are already the Spirit Emperor? Even if you are, you don't get to order us around," a masked Spirit protested.
It was interesting that there was no way to know who was speaking, since their voices were produced by spiritual power. However, it did express the other five's discontent. Even though they had agreed to eliminate the humans first, they would not accept his orders.
"Why don't you elect an emperor first? We'll have some fun by ourselves here," Ning Haotian said.
"Jiang Chen, let's start our Divine Martial Trial," Jiang Zhe said.
The six masked Spirits stopped speaking. They were communicating through holy awareness. They started to act when Jiang Zhe was about to approach Jiang Chen.
Jiang Zhe was on guard immediately. He could not afford to be absentminded.
People found the masked Spirits' plans were exactly what the Future Spirit Emperor had said. They were going to eliminate the humans first!
Jiang Chen, Ning Haotian, and Jiang Zhe were facing two masked Spirits each.
"Don't let things get more complicated. Just quit." The Future Spirit Emperor said again. People felt extremely curious about the face behind the black mask. By then no one knew from which Spirit clan he was.
The two standing before Jiang Chen were the Spiritual Son of the Fire Spirit and the Spiritual Son of the Flame Spirit.
Ning Haotian was facing the Spirit wearing the white mask and the swordsman.
Staring at Jiang Zhe, the Future Spirit Emperor said, "I'll give you five seconds to reconsider this."
In theory, such a comment would not work at all. The threatened party would not obey so easily under so many people's gazes.
"Jiang Chen, if you can win the title, I'll admit my defeat in our Divine Martial Trial." To everyone's surprise, he did talk Jiang Zhe out of it. People did not even understand why he had bothered to go onto the arena.
However, the Future Spirit Emperor had anticipated that. He came up to Ning Haotian with another masked Spirit. He said, "You have five seconds too."
Ning Haotian gnashed his teeth. He would have had a chance if it was one to two. However, he was now more pressured since Jiang Zhe had quit. But even if he quit, it would not look as convincing as Jiang Zhe's case. People could have assumed Jiang Zhe was using these Spiritual Sons and Spiritual Ladies to kill Jiang Chen. But what excuse could he use?
If he were me, he would quit too. Throwing Jiang Chen a glance involuntarily, Ning Haotian thought. Three of the five seconds had passed.
No! He would not quit! Neither will I! I'll catch up with him!
Ning Haotian looked ferocious. He said at the fourth second, "Okay." Then, he went back to the platform. He was heavily sweating and extremely pale, as if he had just been saved from drowning in a river. Even if others would not despise him, his weakness was unacceptable.
"There is no hope at all if the six masked Spirits fight together." The six masked Spirits did not discuss this strategy with each other at the beginning, but when they decided to collaborate, Jiang Zhe chose to quit.
"What about you?" The Future Spirit Emperor came up to Jiang Chen. He sounded sarcastic.
People burst out laughing. Since Ning Haotian and Jiang Zhe had given up, Jiang Chen would have to fight alone against six Spirits. Even an idiot knew what was the right thing to do.
Jiang Chen raised his chin, putting his right hand on the Red Cloud Sword on his left side and his left hand on the Heavenly Fault Sword on his right side. His arms stroked one after the other. Both of the swords were drawn out.
"Cut the crap. Let's fight!"
