Chapter 2445: Admit Defeat
Translator: Henyee Translations Editor: Henyee Translations
Cao Mengde’s victory was too simple and overbearing. He killed the enemy with one blow as if it were a piece of cake for him.
At this moment, even an idiot wouldn’t dare to underestimate Cao Mengde.
But someone was still puzzled. “Did this guy cheat? Did someone give him the small seal that spewed out of his mouth?”
Someone sneered. “Are you stupid? Even if the small seal was a cheat, he grabbed Liu Mu’s full-strength attack so easily. Do you think that the legendary useless Cao Mengde can do that? To be honest, even I had to avoid that attack he launched just now.”
Someone was horrified. “Was Cao Mengde hiding his strength?”
Someone sighed. “A playboy hides his real strength, accumulates his strength, and soars to the sky when there is a chance for him, which sounds like a story.”
On the Cao Family’s side.
The patriarch of the Cao Family said, “This boy has mastered the Purple Demon Divine Fire and the Mystic Sky Seal Technique. His physique is worlds apart from what I saw in the past. I think he must have sealed his strength in the past. His overall strength is currently between the Star Path and the peak-level late-stage Star Transformation Realm. However, because of his good foundation, he is much stronger than ordinary late-stage Star Transformation Realm cultivators. With such talent, I’m afraid it won’t be long before he advances to the peak-level late-stage Star Transformation Realm.”
These words were rather ear-piercing to many people, but they didn’t care about a mere peak-level late-stage Star Transformation Realm cultivator. What they cared about was that since they had guessed Cao Mengde’s plan, if these people were left to their own devices, one day they would suffer backlash.
Not only the Cao Family, but the Wu Family, Li Family, and Zhou Family also realized the problem. Since Cao Mengde had hidden his strength, what about the others?
They couldn’t help but think that these people must have already been prepared to betray them!
Normally, these super clans wouldn’t care at all. It was just a useless disciple of their clan. However, these people were now together with Han Fei, this lawless guy.
Although these big clans looked down upon Han Fei too and thought that Han Fei was almost certain to die, they didn’t want to take any risk. In the fourth round of qualifiers, how many strong masters of their clans had died? Of course, Cao Mengde and the others were no match for them. Then who had helped them? The answer was obvious at a glance.
At this moment, on Han Fei’s side, Feng Xingliu shouted angrily, “Sure enough, all of you hid your strength. Humph, you liars! If you hadn’t hidden your strength, why did you suddenly become so strong?”
Wu Bufan chuckled and said, “Brother Xingliu, don’t be angry! We had no choice in the past, but now we don’t have to hide anything. You can watch as much as you want in this round.”
Han Fei suddenly said, “Hey! Miss Wushuang, I heard that the Capital of Horror is short of talents? What do you think of Cao Mengde and the others?”
How could Wushuang not understand his meaning? But even if she understood, she couldn’t make any promises now.
The relationship between the Capital of Horror and the Divine Capital Dynasty was indeed mediocre, and even more so with the Gate of Heaven. However, this didn’t mean that the Capital of Horror would offend the big clans in the Divine Capital Dynasty for the sake of Cao Mengde and the others.
If they were ordinary itinerant cultivators, she would have accepted them now. But now, she wasn’t sure.
Under the gaze of Zhou Run and the others, she said, “Not bad. If you all hide your strength, it should be a matter of time for you to break through to the peak-level late-stage Star Transformation Realm. The Capital of Horror is naturally short of talents. I’ll ask my queen when I’m free.”
Han Fei nodded slightly, but he already had a rough idea in his heart. If she could accept them, Wushuang wouldn’t bother to ask. Since she was going to ask, it was hard to say if she would accept them.
The best place Zhou Run and the others had thought to go was the Capital of Horror. This was because the Capital of Horror didn’t have a good relationship with the Divine Capital Dynasty, and the people in the Capital of Horror were lawless.
Once their true strength was unleashed, it meant that many peak-level late-stage Star Transformation Realm experts wanted to join them. Although the Capital of Horror was huge and powerful, they certainly wouldn’t reject any peak-level late-stage Star Transformation Realm cultivators who took the initiative to submit.
However, even Zhou Run had neglected one thing. That was, was it worth it? If it was a real competition, even if they were descendants of big clans, the Capital of Horror might accept them.
However, they collectively defected from their families now, so the result was hard to say.
However, Han Fei added, “Well! I was thinking that if they could go there, maybe I could go to the Capital of Horror someday.”
Zhou Run’s pupils were constricted slightly. Han Fei’s words implied their relationship. If the Capital of Horror accepted them, then Han Fei might also go to the Capital of Horror.
As he expected, Wushuang’s tone changed. “Men’s friendship is indeed strange. Then remember to come to the City of Horrors more often in the future. We can discuss cultivation experiences. Don’t just talk about it.”
“Hahaha! I will. To be honest, I’ve been meaning to go there for a long time, but I’ve been busy with something. When I’m done, I should be able to take the time to wander around.”
Feng Yu listened by the side and thought to herself, What is Little Junior Brother up to? Wushuang is a Heavenly Talent of the Capital of Horror, but Little Junior Brother was definitely not hitting on her.
But it didn’t matter. This was his own path. He could take it however he wanted.
“Cao Mengde wins…”
Cao Mengde only used one move the whole time. This was the battle that ended most quickly so far.
In the same realm, under the careful screening of the four rounds of the qualifiers, he could still kill his enemy in one go. It could be said that even most peak-level late-stage Star Transformation Realm experts couldn’t do it.
However, Cao Mengde did it. He caught the attention of many people.
Unfortunately, none of the main powers expressed whether they would accept Cao Mengde or not.
The strong could have personalities, but it didn’t mean that they didn’t know the ways of the world. Except for a few powers in the East Sea Divine Realm, no other forces dared to accept Cao Mengde.
These major powers knew very well that they might be able to take Cao Mengde alone, but they couldn’t take all those defected playboys.

Of course, if Han Fei was willing to choose a power, these people would definitely scramble for him. In their opinion, it would be enough if they could recruit Han Fei in this round of the hundred-thousand-year competition.
The only headache was that if they accepted Han Fei, they would have to face the pressure of the Gate of Heaven and many big clans. Therefore, until the last moment, there were still variables.
When most of the powers didn’t take action, the beautiful woman from the Capital of Horror said, “Go tell Wushuang to invite Han Fei. If he’s willing to come to the Capital of Horror, we can help him solve his conflict with the Gate of Heaven and the big clans of the Divine Capital Dynasty.”
The sixth day.
It was finally Zhou Run’s turn. Unlike Cao Mengde, Zhou Run was a controller. He didn’t defeat the enemy with one move like Cao Mengde, but his opponent lay on the ground without even touching the corner of Zhou Run’s clothes.
In comparison, Wu Bufan’s battle on the eighth day was much fiercer. Cao Mengde’s battle style was powerful, while Wu Bufan’s battle style was fierce and insidious.
He seemed to draw on the strengths of Cao Mengde and Zhou Run. This guy only used three moves and laid a trap that cut his opponent into pieces.
Following that, Luo Dafei, Li Chen, and Mu Nan continued Cao Mengde’s fighting style. They had been holding back for years and had a lot of trump cards, so it was easy for them to catch their opponents off guard.
And the ultimate moves they had been holding back were definitely not ordinary techniques.
Therefore, their performance in the first round was too eye-catching. Except for Zhou Run, the others all ended their battles very quickly.
Han Fei’s game was the 808th game in the eighth arena.
While Han Fei was waiting to fight, Feng Yu, Wushuang, and the others had all finished their battles. Only Feng Xingliu would fight later than him.
On the 40th day, it was finally Han Fei’s turn.
The referee shouted, “The eighth arena, the 808th round. Participants Han Fei and Qin Feng, please enter the arena quickly.”
At this moment, Han Fei and the others stopped eating hot pot, mainly because they had eaten too much. They had taken turns cooking many times, and the essence of hot pot and barbecue had long been learned.
At this moment, only Han Fei, Feng Xingliu, and Zhou Run were still gathered together.
At this moment, it was finally his turn. Han Fei grinned and said, “It’s finally my turn. Sure enough, this competition that happens once every 100,000 years can’t be finished without a few years!”
Feng Xingliu said with a black face, “I’m in the second arena, the 998th battle. I’m afraid I still have to wait for a long time.”
Han Fei patted Feng Xingliu’s shoulder and said, “This is only the first round. What’s the rush? There are still seven rounds to go.”
Hearing the words “seven rounds”, Han Fei’s mouth twitched, not to mention Feng Xingliu. Although watching others fight could absorb a lot of things, he couldn’t stand watching them all the time.
It was finally Han Fei’s turn to fight. In the arena, the young man opposite Han Fei looked solemn. He said, “Han Fei, I know you are very powerful. I have a very strong technique. Do you dare to take this move of mine?”
Han Fei smiled. “Okay! The stronger the better.”
Qin Feng smiled creepily. “Starlight.”
Qin Feng pointed a finger at the air.
Many people who were watching the game were lost for words.
Someone was sweating. “Wait, what are you doing? You’re only pointing a finger at Han Fei?”
Someone was lost for words. “I’m not bragging, but I bet Qin Feng will be beaten up in the next second.”
Someone shook his head. “I can’t bear to watch.”
Han Fei, on the other hand, felt that this move of Qin Feng was a bit like All Great Daos in One Sword. However, it was a kind of energy compressed to the extreme. If that was all, Qin Feng was too weak.
However, in the next moment, with a crack, Qin Feng actually severed one of his fingers. That finger burned his flesh and blood and turned into a sword, suddenly bursting out with a terrifying speed nearly nine times the speed of light.
Because the space of the arena was limited, no one noticed anything yet. They only saw that Han Fei was holding a terrifying sword light that was like a starlight with one hand and seemed to be observing its essence.
Han Fei nodded slightly. “This strike can’t be said to be strong, but it’s already not weak. It’s a pity that you haven’t incorporated enough Dao runes and your understanding of the Great Dao is not enough yet. Otherwise, this strike would be even stronger. Next…”
“I admit defeat.”
Han Fei was about to speak, when his opponent directly admitted defeat.
Han Fei was dumbfounded. I waited for 40 days to fight you, and you admit defeat so quickly? Did you beat me for nothing?
More importantly, the referee raised his hand and said matter-of-factly, “The eighth arena, the 808th battle, Han Fei wins.”
Han Fei: “…”
