The green-robed youth looked at the white-robed youth with an ugly expression. The injury from this kick was not serious, but it made him feel ashamed. The white-robed youth was obviously much younger than him. But in terms of strength, the white-youth man could easily defeat him. He found this somewhat unacceptable.
What he had never anticipated had happened.
It was like a heavy slap, making him dizzy for a moment.
After saying this sentence, the white-robed young man became slothful again and approached Ye Xiwen. He sat down in a chair in front of Ye Xiwen mindlessly.
“My name is Bai Hanmo. I think you are pleasing to the eye, let’s make friends!” Bai Hanmo looked at Ye Xiwen and said with interest.
“Ye Xiwen!” replied Ye Xiwen lightly. The two of them had completely ignored the sour green-robed youth.
Although this Bai Hanmo was a bit slothful, Ye Xiwen found it comfortable to mingle with such a person.
The green-robed youth glanced bitterly at Bai Hanmo and then at Ye Xiwen, as if to engraved both of them in his mind. Then, he quickly turned around and left.
Everyone here seemed to be mocking at him, filling his heart full with resentment.
“You also came to this gathering organized by Sister Yao!” Bai Hanmo said with a slight smile.
“Well, I received an invitation previously, so I came!” Ye Xiwen nodded.
“So you know Sister Yao?” Bai Hanmo suddenly became interested.
“We have some connection!” Ye Xiwen brushed it off. He didn’t know what the relationship between Bai Hanmo and Yao Qian was, but this white-robed youth always addressed Yao Qian as Sister Yao. Their relationship should be alright.
“That’s great, let’s go together. I haven’t seen Sister Yao for a long time!” Bai Hanmo clapped his hands and exclaimed, completely like a child.
Ye Xiwen thought for a while. Initially, he planned to eat something before going, but since the change of events had developed into this, it didn’t matter anymore, “Okay, let’s go together!”
The gathering of young experts was also held in the Sunny Bamboo Chamber of Commerce. From time to time, young experts were entering. There were many warriors spectating on the sidelines. They were either not qualified to participate, or they were older than the requirements.
They came all the way to the outskirts of the Sunny Bamboo Chamber of Commerce, but they were stopped.
“What? Sister Yao and I are so familiar with each other. Do you still need me to run through the assessment!?” Bai Hanmo exclaimed in dissatisfaction.
It turned that cultivation realm at Transcendent Realm Second level was the prerequisite to gain entry. Assessment was a must to prevent the warriors falling short of the standard from entering the venue.
But no matter what Bai Hanmo said, the Sunny Bamboo Chamber of Commerce’s escort was still strict. Ye Xiwen noticed that Bai Hanmo was already impatient. When he was about to explode, he unexpectedly chose to compromise and came to a massive stone monument next to him.
There was a nine boxes grid on this stone monument, each of which represented one level. As long as the warrior striked with his full might, the amount of box lit represented his total strength.
Of course, this method was quite common, but it could only be used as a reference. This did not fully represent a warrior’s combat strength. After all, overall combat strength did not lie only on qi or physical strength. Speed, martial arts mastery, and so on made a huge difference too.
But for basic testing, it was enough!
“Boom!” Bai Hanmo didn’t say much, and hit it with a punch.
Four of the nine dim boxes lit up. Bai Hanmo did it in ease. He then glanced at the guard. Did you see that? How is it? How dare you look down on me!?
But seeing that the guard didn’t care at all, he was a little depressed.
After Bai Hanmo, it was Ye Xiwen’s turn. He hit it directly with a punch. Only two of the nine hidden boxes lit up. He barely passed.
Many onlookers didn’t pay any further attention when they saw this result. It was just a pass. Only Bai Hanmo glanced at Ye Xiwen in surprise. He knew that Ye Xiwen’s true combat strength would be far above the Transcendent Realm Second level. However, Ye Xiwen managed to control his output. It was much more difficult than him showing off Transcendent Realm Fourth Level casually.
Although Bai Hanmo was a little slothful, he was an alert person.
Bai Hanmo noticed a young expert next to him approached arrogantly. He said with great dissatisfaction, “Why do I need to go through assessment? Don’t he need to do that?”
The guard glanced at him disdainfully and said, “He is a good friend of our young boss. A well-known expert on the Top 100 List too. Naturally, he doesn’t have to go through the assessment!”
The hidden meaning was: Who are you? I have never heard of you!
This made Bai Hanmo on the side depressed, but Ye Xiwen next to him was unfazed. He was familiar with that person. That person was none other than Qi Dong. To his surprise, this fellow also escaped from that burning corpses’ pursuit.
“That person is Qi Dong. I’m not mistaken. I didn’t expect him to appear this time!”
“What’s peculiar about this? He also attended the previous two gatherings. Who doesn’t know that he is also an admirer of Muse Yao. He often appears where Muse Yao is!”
“Isn’t Muse Yao the Unparalleled Sword’s admirer?”
“Who can be so sure of this!?”
The discussion nearby reached the ears of the two of them, making Bai Hanmo even more depressed. Suddenly, he turned to Ye Xiwen and said, “Elder Brother Ye, I support you to pursue Sister Yao. Compare this to Qi Dong, you are much better! Worst comes to worst, you’re better than the Unparalleled Sword with facial paralysis!”
The unsuspecting Ye Xiwen almost choked. What the hell are you talking?
Ye Xiwen was speechless. That Qi Dong was bad mouthed all of a sudden. Worse still, Unparalleled Sword had facial paralysis. Although he had encountered the Unparalleled Sword twice, they had not chatted. The first time was when he was still in a restaurant and the second time was in Holy Realm Dwellers’ Mansion. The Unparalleled Sword was so fast that Ye Xiwen could not follow his sight on the Unparalleled Sword.
“That person is Ye Xiwen. Am I mistaken?”
“You’re not wrong. It is definitely him. Hiss, he is too courageous. Although the Vanishing Shadow Poisonous Crocodile Clan experts have relaxed a little bit on hunting him down, he actually dares to appear here. He is courting death!”
“Indeed, I heard that E Ying die in his hands. This gathering will become more lively!”
“Brother Ye, you are so famous!” Bai Hanmo looked at Ye Xiwen as if he was a miracle in the world, making him somewhat speechless.
It would be a matter of time before being recognized. Perhaps he did not leave a deep impression on Sunny Bamboo Island. At that time, everyone paid attention to Crown Prince Crocodile and Unparalleled Sword. However, with E Ying After dying in his hands, his popularity also soared instantly.
Ye Xiwen didn’t want to say anything more. He pulled Bai Hanmo in. He suddenly felt that going along with Bai Hanmo was a mistake.
When Ye Xiwen entered, he found that the crowd had reached more than 200 people. Most of them were young Transcendent Realm Second Level experts. There were a few Transcendent Realm Third Level and Fourth Level warriors standing out in the crowd.
These were the young experts who were well-known in the parameter. Although they couldn’t make it to the Top 100 List, they were also rare elite experts among the younger generation. There were at least several times this number of experts who couldn’t get in.
On the platform in the middle of the venue, a group of about seven or eight people stood on it, forming a completely incompatible scene with these people below. The eyes of the young experts below were facing the eight warriors on the platform.
Ye Xiwen looked over and saw a few acquaintances. Of course, Qi Dong stood on a platform. Scarlet Thunder Immortal stood beside him, which Ye Xiwen did not expect.
Beside Qi Dong, two young men stood beside him; one on the left and the other on the right.
In addition to them, there are two sea clan experts, one was the Vanishing Shadow Poisonous Crocodile Clan and the other was Jade Shadow Sea Snake Clan. Obviously, the warrior on the platform was E Hong and Bi Lixuan.
At this time, the two of them were obviously cold and hostile to each other. Thinking of what Ye Xiwen had heard previously, it must be because of Bi Chen.
It was a pity that Ye Xiwen killed Bi Chen previously. He didn’t inspect on Bi Chen’s memory at the time, so he didn’t know what happened to Bi Chen that caused him to be under Jade Shadow Sea Snake Clan’s pursuit.
What surprised Ye Xiwen was that the previous green-robed youth was standing next to Bi Lixuan. It seemed they had a close connection.
These warriors were obviously better than those below, at least they were at the Top 100 List.
“Why don’t I see Sister Yao?” Bai Hanmo glanced, then asked.
“She is the host; she should come last!” replied Ye Xiwen immediately.
“That’s right. Elder Brother Ye. It’s quite fun on the platform. We should go up too. Let’s go!” Bai Hanmo was a little bored when he noticed Yao Qian was not there. Then again, his next thoughts excited him.
“Then, let’s go up together. It’s a good opportunity to greet my acquaintances!” Ye Xiwen glanced at Scarlet Thunder Immortal on the platform, and said coldly.
The two of them morphed into two bolts of light and arrived at the high platform. It immediately attracted the attention of the experts who were gazing at the platform.
“Who are these two warriors? They dare to rush up directly. Don’t they know that this high platform is only qualified for the Top 100?”
“Haha, this will be an exhilarating performance. If they are not strong enough, they will probably be thrown down the platform on the spot!”
“They are not the first. This will be interesting!”
Many warriors were wondering how Ye Xiwen and his partner dared to rush up. Most importantly, the spectating warriors were waiting for them to be embarrassed as if seeing the two of them made a fool of themselves would improve the spectating warriors’ mood.
