to enter the inner sect.
Besides being obsessed with the sword, he was also wealthy, handsome, and charming, making him the dream partner for many female cultivators and the favorite topic of discussion and competition among the sword cultivators who wanted to surpass him.

The disciples from both sects who had finished their battles soon gathered around, and even the two managing senior brothers and elite disciples from the top ranks of both sects looked curiously over.

Zhao Keran was anxiously holding the Revival Pill in her hand, deeply worried.

Just when her heart was in turmoil, a burst of spiritual light appeared in the sky, and the hazy yellow array that obstructed their view slowly dissipated.

“He’s coming out! He’s coming out!”

In this battle, the Clearwater Sect was undoubtedly defeated.

The disciples of the Mountain and Sea Sect were delighted, while the Clearwater Sect members felt disheartened and silent.

However, as the array dissolved, a slender figure in blue emerged.

She had a rosy complexion, sweat on her forehead, and was breathing slightly heavily, yet she walked out calmly.

On the other hand, the other disciple of the Mountain and Sea Sect, Xiao Qi, who was among the top three in the outer sect rankings, was nowhere to be seen.

Everyone was taken aback.

“Sister, are you injured?”

Zhao Keran hurriedly ran to Lin Shuang and checked her all over.

“Did you take the Revival Pill?”

Xiao Qi, who was sitting in meditation, shook his body.

He was the one who took the pill.


He was the one who got beaten!

“The winner of this round is Mountain and Sea Sect’s disciple, Xiao Qi.” The supervising senior disciple of the Mountain and Sea Sect smiled, scanning Lin Shuang’s weak cultivation and recording it with a pen.

Xiao Qi’s chest hurt, and he looked at the Mountain and Sea Sect’s senior disciple.

His lips moved, and his eyes gradually turned red.

‘Ah, it’s almost an incense stick’s worth of time.
I’ve sweated a lot.’

‘Troublesome… When the isolation array opens, should I say it’s good that I won or that I lost?’

‘If I say I won at the Qi Refining Ninth Layer, my little junior sister, Senior Brother Xu, and the master who passed on the techniques will all ask me at least three rounds of questions about my cultivation.
Explaining my cultivation issue will take at least an hour and a half.’

‘And that might cause other outer sect disciples not to believe me and challenge me.
But I don’t need to burn fat for half an hour every day… If I have to deal with it every day, I’ll waste at least two hours every week…’

‘But if I say I lost, it might affect the allocation of the spiritual springs, and it might slow down my progress of reaching 100 Dantian breakthroughs to the Condensing Yuan realm.’

In a daze, Xiao Qi recalled the fragmented mumbling he heard when his spiritual Qi shattered just now.

One hundred Dantian…

He turned his head to look at Lin Shuang, who was being protected by others.
She appeared innocent and delicate, and he couldn’t discern whether everything that happened just now was a dream or an illusion.

“In that case, you should just say you admit defeat later, because today we don’t fight against women, okay?”

Xiao Qi was stunned, and when he saw Lin Shuang smiling at him with her eyebrows raised, all his grievances and indignation surged.

She had even thought of an excuse for how he lost!

Looking at the disciples of the Mountain and Sea Sect waiting for the outcome of their battle after the isolation array opened.

Looking at the senior disciple of the Mountain and Sea Sect who thought he had won and recorded the result.

Xiao Qi was filled with sadness and anger, and he gritted his teeth and lowered his head.

“What… what did you say?”

“???”

“What, what did you say?”

The scene fell into silence.


The recording senior disciple of the Mountain and Sea Sect had his pen ink smeared.

Xu Rui, the senior disciple of the Clearwater Sect, had his Eight Trigram Sword trembling behind him.

Zhao Keran was stunned and forgot to blink.

“It’s impossible, Xiao Senior Brother, how could you lose to someone at the Qi Refining Third Layer!”

“Xiao Qi, are you sure you didn’t make a mistake?”

But in an instant, the array stone emitted a radiant light because the outcome was decided, shooting into their waist tokens.

【Lin Shuang: Disciple of the Clearwater Sect, Qi Refining Third Layer】

【Spring Robbing – Victory (9 victories, 6 absences) 】

【Contribution to the sect: 500 points】

【Due to defeating an opponent from a higher realm, contribution doubled to 1000 points】

【Updated ranking of Clearwater Sect’s outer disciples: 18888 → 17291】

【Xiao Qi: Disciple of the Mountain and Sea Sect, Qi Refining Ninth Layer】

【Spring Robbing – Defeat (13 victories, 1 defeat) 】

【Deducting contribution to the sect: 500 points】

【Updated ranking of Mountain and Sea Sect’s outer disciples: 3 → 5】

The words on the sect tokens appeared, hovering in the air.

Silence.

A suffocating silence.

“She ranks 18,000th… and she won against Senior Brother Xiao, who is third…”

“Senior Brother Xiao dropped out of the top three… and she’s still ranked 17,000th…?”

Putting their cultivation levels and rankings side by side was simply ridiculous.
