Little Fox was deep in the game.
Suddenly, the corner of Little Fox’s lips curled up in a radiant smile. She quickly placed the white piece in a spot.
Suddenly, the white pieces merged into an immense force, turning the board into a dragon that started to soar!
A surge of wisdom erupted, shooting out like a volcano, and the skies above them turned into a massive vortex.
Under everyone’s eyes, the board was emitting an intense light. With the power of Wisdom manifesting into a dragon, it soared in the skies.
It was incredibly terrifying.
“Brother Li, I told you my technique will definitely win, but you’re still so careless. Hehehe.”
Little Fox’s eyes were narrowed as she laughed, incredibly pleased with herself.
Yet, Li Nianfan’s expression did not change at all. A smile appeared on his face as he looked at Little Fox in amusement.
Shaking his head, he said, “There are no unwinnable scenarios in the world. If you’re too eager and end up ignoring your opponent’s set up, you’ve committed a major mistake.”
After that, he placed a black piece on the ground!
At that moment, a black light surged into the sky!
The white aura that covered the sky had been pushed away by the surge of dark energy. The dark energy turned into a giant with a gigantic ax in hand, standing in the skies.
The ax chopped right into the white dragon!
“Ah, how did this happen?!”
Little Fox widened her eyes, looking at the chessboard in this belief. Only after a moment did her head slump down in disappointment.
She said reluctantly, “Brother Li, you’re so strong. I can’t fool you.”
Li Nianfan smiled and said, “You’re already quite good. As long as you learn to look at your opponents, not many people will be able to beat you.”
After teaching Little Fox a lesson, he felt quite good.
Outside the courtyard, Jiang Liu and the Elite King finally snapped out of their stupor as the laws dispersed.
They had greatly benefited from the experience. Xiao Chengfeng’s power was rapidly surging out of his body. In the air, there was a strange sound that sounded like a lock had been broken open.
He had officially turned into a Wisdom Dictator!
Just from the the laws that were formed from a single chess match, he had managed to step into the realm of a Wisdom Dictator!
It was way too unbelievable.
However, Xiao Chengfeng’s seemed quite down. He was not really all that happy. Instead, he felt that it was a huge pity
“Ah, I just managed to understand a tiny fraction of that and managed to breakthrough. I couldn’t understand more because my cultivation’s far too low. I wasted such an amazing chance for no reason. How sad is that!”
Xiao Chengfeng slapped his thigh, feeling like ripping his heart out. “Alright, you can’t forcibly wish for these things. Let’s hurry up and see the expert,” Jiang Liu urged.
Right after that, they composed themselves before knocking on the door.
Knock knock knock.
Xiao Bai opened the door.
“Thank you, Xiao Bai.”
Jiang Liu and Xiao Chengfeng said at the same time before they entered the courtyard. “Oh, you’re back.”
Li Nianfan let out a smile when he saw the two of them. He said curiously, “How are the results?”
Jiang Liu had asked him for leave to participate in a swordsmanship conference, so Li Nianfan wondered how it turned out.
“Thanks to Lord Saint, everything went smoothly. We even got the Sky Melting Sword.”
Xiao Chengfeng showed them the Sky Melting Sword.
The blood-red Sky Melting Sword shone like a piece of red jade. It was obvious it was extraordinary at first glance.
Li Nianfan praised, “Not bad, you actually managed to get a prize.”
To be able to get a prize meant that they had probably gotten good results at the conference. It looked like the two of them must have really done well.
After pausing, he said, “Alright, since you’re here, why don’t you have a meal. It’s to celebrate your good results.”
“Thank you, Lord Saint.”
Xiao Chengfeng and Jiang Liu were ecstatic. They felt like the expert was rewarding them for their good work.
As they ate, Jiang Liu and Xiao Chengfeng had wanted to talk about the Wisdom Pill Pavilion. However, the expert was right next to them. They were worried they would disturb the expert’s cultivation and make him unhappy, so they were forced to hold back.
Ah, it seemed like they would have to figure it out themselves.
Once they all had their fill, Jiang Liu and Xiao Chengfeng bid their farewells.
However, just a moment after they left the courtyard, Li Nianfan noticed that Xiao Chengfeng had left the Sky Melting Sword behind.
Li Nianfan frowned. “Oh my, we were just having a meal. How did they forget the sword?”
“Master, I’ll go give it back to them.” Blackie’s eyes opened as he immediately stood up. “Alright.”
The moment Li Nianfan said that, Blackie bit the Sky Melting Sword and ran out of the courtyard.
Jiang Liu and Xiao Chengfeng had arrived at the foot of the hill. They had been preparing to discuss how they would get rid of the Wisdom Pill Pavilion with the Heavenly Palace when Blackie caught up with them.
“Woof woof, stay there!”
Blackie turned into a shadow as he stood in front of the two of them.
“Lord Dog.” Jiang Liu and Xiao Chengfeng immediately had a serious expression.
“What brings you here, Lord Dog?”
Blackie tossed the Sky Melting Sword to the two of them. “You left your sword back there. Master had me send it back to you.”
Jiang Liu exchanged a look with Xiao Chengfeng. Both of them were obviously confused.
Xiao Chengfeng could not help but say, “Lord Dog, isn’t the expert gathering the Battle Spirits? I deliberately left the Sky Melting Sword behind. Why is he giving it back?”
“Since master’s giving it to you, you should use it.”
Blackie had a casual tone, “With how strong he is, he wouldn’t use these Battle Spirits at all. He definitely wants them for the people by his side. Who else uses swords other than you?”
Jiang Liu needed to chop wood, so the Sky Melting Sword was useless. It would only be useful in Xiao Chengfeng’s hands. When Xiao Chengfeng heard that, he felt his blood boiling emotionally.
‘It’s an absolute honor!’
Xiao Chengfeng immediately cheered loudly in his heart.
All of the seven Battle Spirits were amazing objects. They were all the peak of treasures.
For the expert to award him one was enough to show him how much the expert treasured him!
At that moment, Xiao Chengfeng cried.
He bowed to the courtyard as he choked, “I, Xiao Chengfeng, thank you for your reward. I won’t disappoint you!” Blackie asked, “You seemed to be very hesitant when you were eating just now. Is anything wrong?”
Xiao Chengfeng was overcome by his emotions and was still sobbing. So, Jiang Liu had to explain.
“Lord Dog, it’s like this. We noticed a place with a lot of gray mist…”
“So that’s what happened.” Blackie nodded. His eyes glinted as his tail started to wag. He said impatiently, “Where’s the Wisdom Pill Pavilion? Bring me over to cause some trouble. I’m so bored staying in the courtyard.”
“What? You’re bored over there?!”
Blackie’s words completely stunned Xiao Chengfeng and Jiang Liu. They stared at Blackie.
The courtyard was absolutely a holy land for cultivation. Even putting aside the environment within it, just a chess match was full of Wisdom.
Jiang Liu and Xiao Chengfeng had benefited so much just from a sliver of what was inside. Staying in the courtyard would greatly exceed their imaginations.
Yet, Blackie was saying he was bored?!
He did not know how blessed he was!!!
Blackie sighed. “That’s right, it’s really boring. I either listen to them play music or look at them draw. I even have to look at them play chest. It’s so boring. You really don’t understand my suffering!”
What was there to understand?!
Who was it who did not understand?!
If they did not know that they could not beat Blackie, Jiang Liu and Xiao Chengfeng would have beaten the dog up. Whether it was the music or the drawings, or even the chess game, they were all incredible opportunities.
If it was in the outside world, people would put their lives on the line for it. Yet, he did not want it?!
He really was a dog!
The two of them were jealous to the point of shaking
Damn, they really were failures compared to a dog!!!
