“Xu Xiaoshou won”
“Xu Xiaoshou won!”
The battle had ended.
The barrier fell.
The loud cheers coming from the spectator seats startled Xu Xiaoshou.
He turned around to take a look.
“Wow, when did so many people come” he thought.
“All of the outer yard disciples who were at the Chuyun Platform are here!”
Many junior disciples were in tears amongst the spectators.
Xu Xiaoshou didnt know what they were crying about and could only assume that theyd gone insane.
Passive Points 324.”
Passive Points 1125.”
Xu Xiaoshou glanced at the notification panel and nearly fell to his knees in shock.
What was this
He could understand the first wave of doubt that hed received.
After all, Xu Xiaoshou had become the champion of the group-stage competition even though his cultivation level was only Level Five.
He would naturally be doubted to some extent.
Even though Liu Zhen and Zhou Zuo were also on the stage, anybody with eyes could tell that they had slacked off during the competition.
That meant that Xu Xiaoshou was obviously the champion.
As for the “respect” hed gotten after that…
He couldnt really explain that!
Also, it seemed like it was the first time this had appeared on the notification panel.
Over a thousand Passive Points
Xu Xiaoshou was dumbfounded.
Hed been fully concentrated on getting beaten up to earn more Passive Points and hadnt realized that hed become a determined individual whod never give up before turning the tide and achieving glory in the eyes of the spectators!
After all, in the eyes of the people whod come later, he was a living sandbag being beaten up by the other competitors.
Those people were beasts.
How could they be so heavy-handed with him Look at Xu Xiaoshous face.
It was all green and purple…
Oh Why were his injuries so minor
The judge walked over with a tray in his hand, his face expressionless.
The prize was a single ring.
Xu Xiaoshou raised an eyebrow.
A space ring
That was a valuable item.
Hed never be able to afford such an item, even if he sold both his yard and his black sword.
He picked up the ring and pointed toward the judges trembling hand.
He then said sincerely, “Thank you, but you need not be excited for me.”
The judges hands trembled even more when he heard this.
Do I seem excited Holding this tray is the only thing keeping me from unleashing my fury.
The judge didnt feel like hed participated very much at all during the battle, other than interfering with a few battles, which made him feel a great deal of despair.
Hed wanted to do his job and fulfill his responsibilities well.
However, hed been forced to stand off to the side and do nothing.
Xu Xiaoshou had fooled him since the beginning.
It was only after the battle had ended that hed realized that Xu Xiaoshou had a darned Innate Stage physical body!
“I was wondering where the two auras of an Innate Stage fighter had come from.
I didnt expect it to be him!” he thought.
The judge pushed down his emotions and coldly waved his arm.
“Keep it up!”
Then he turned around to leave.
Xu Xiaoshou felt that the judge was acting a little strange.
However, he returned the gesture and said to the judges receding figure, “Ill keep working hard!”
The judges hand trembled, and the tray flew out of his hands.
“Oh, my sword!” Xu Xiaoshou shouted behind the judge.
The judge pounced forward to catch the tray hed thrown.
Then he tossed the sword backward without turning his head around.
Xu Xiaoshou knitted his brows as he looked at the judges back.
He couldnt help but mutter, “Hes acting so strangely!”
Everyone in the spectator seats was shouting.
At the beginning, only a few young girls had been shouting, but by the end, the people around them had become so embarrassed that they were being stared at that theyd started shouting along with them.
Xu Xiaoshou felt very embarrassed.
He didnt know why these people were acting so crazy.
However, they were shouting his name and all looked very excited.
Thus, he waved at the spectators.
Dont stand on formalities.”
Rao Yinyin stood up and stretched.
She pulled down the hem of her dress that the young lady had pulled to the top of her thigh and teased, “You can go and look for your Brother Little Beast now!”
Su Qianqian smiled, revealing the dimples in her cheeks.
“Theres no need.
Its just great that Brother Little Beast doesnt have to leave the spirit palace now.”
“Look at how agitated the girls beside you are.
What if they snatch your Brother Little Beast away from you”
“What are you talking about!” Su Qianqian blushed.
“That thought hasnt crossed my mind.”
“Oh Is that so”
“Im ignoring you!”
Su Qianqian leapt off her chair, her head accidentally knocking into Rao Yinyins chest.
She lowered her head and picked up her large sword before running away.
“Tsk tsk, how cute…”
Xu Xiaoshou noticed the two of them.
There werent many Innate Stage auras in the area.
While his Innate-Stage physical body wasnt easily detectable, that didnt mean that the auras of other Innate Stage fighters werent.
At the very least, their ethereal demeanors were completely different from those of the girls who were screaming his name.
“Its been a long time…”
He was busy looking in the direction the young girl was running when he noticed the girl in the red dress walking behind her suddenly look back at him.
She winked at him and smiled.
Passive Points 1.”
Xu Xiaoshou was still a little distracted, but he was so surprised he almost vomited blood when he saw the new notification.
Some things should be left unspoken.
You dont always have to announce these things!
Everyone whod come was a Spiritual Cultivator.
Even though theyd been his fans just now, theyd never do anything out of character.
Um, at least in public…
Xu Xiaoshou moved to leave, but Elder Qiao appeared before him.
“What an impressive lad.
To think that you were able to turn the tide even after you got beaten up like that.
You sure have your methods!”
Elder Qiaos expression turned dark.
“You didnt notice me, did you All your attention was focused on those two girls”
“Hehe!” Xu Xiaoshou said as he walked.
“How could that be Werent you the first to come here!”
Xu Xiaoshou was relieved.
Fortunately for him, hed made the right guess.
Hed also changed his tone so that his words sounded like a statement rather than a question.
Elder Qiao didnt see through his lie.
“When did you achieve an Innate-stage physical body You dared to keep it from even me” Elder Qiao questioned.
“What You dare to ask me this question” he thought.
Xu Xiaoshou instantly felt indignant.
“Didnt I tell you last time that Ive reached the Innate stage You didnt believe me then.”
The last time
Elder Qiao remembered the last time theyd met in the Spiritual Affairs Division and smiled awkwardly.
“At that time… Only a ghost wouldve believed you!”
Seeing that Xu Xiaoshou was about to act up again, he quickly took out a pill bottle and stuffed it into Xu Xiaoshous hands.
“You mustve been injured!
“Here, Ill give you this.
Go back and tend to your wounds well.
Ill see you next time!” He instantly fled after saying his piece.
Xu Xiaoshou was speechless.
“Did he have to do that” he thought.
“All I was going to do was curse a little.
I wouldnt have chewed you out.”
He looked at the pills that Elder Qiao had given him, and felt his heart warm…
Elder Qiao, pills…
Xu Xiaoshou suddenly shivered.
Xu Xiaoshou washed up after returning to his room, then lay down on his soft bed that had been cleaned.
He felt comfortable.
Even though he had predicted it, actually becoming the champion of the group-stage competition and achieving the best accomplishment hed had in three years still felt like a dream.
All he could say was that the Innate-stage Strengthen was an extremely terrifying technique!
In the past, he wouldnt have lasted even a second under such an attack.
However, now, all he had were a few superficial wounds, and his muscles and nerves were a little strained.
His injuries were basically non-existent.
The swelling and bruising on his face could be healed in just one training session.
He thought about the pills that Elder Qiao had given him.
He didnt dare to use them.
Xu Xiaoshou took out the champions ring and established ownership over it with his blood.
He saw that there was a space that was about half the size of a house within the ring, and became elated.
There werent many things in the ring, only a hundred Spirit Crystals and a bottle of pills.
Most of its value came from the ring itself.
Xu Xiaoshou took out the pill bottle and had a look.
Spiritual Cultivation Pills…
He was shaken.
He quickly put the items back, alongside a few of his miscellaneous items.
It felt great to have a small storage space everywhere he went.
He wasnt in the habit of wearing rings.
Thus, he threaded a piece of string through the ring and made it a necklace.
This was the first victory hed had in this arduous life.
It was very memorable.
He had to treasure the ring.
He lay on the bed and adjusted his posture so that he could achieve the greatest comfort.
“Then, here comes the main event…” he thought.
“How many Passive Points did I gain from being brutally attacked during that pitiful battle”
Aside from stealing a few glances at his total Passive Points earlier during the battle, hed held himself back from looking at the value throughout the battle.
Hed tried his best to ignore the number at the bottom of the interface all for this moment!
Xu Xiaoshous heart beat wildly.
He looked at the very bottom of the notification panel in the red interface.
He was overcome with happiness, so much so that he felt a “buzz” in his brain.
The notification panel in his mind went dark and then came back on again.
His fingers cramped up as he subconsciously counted, “One, two, three…”
“Five… Five digits!”
Passive Points: 17660.
