Chapter 3594: Switching the Balls
“Chang Yang, first place, two hundred thousand five-coloured immortal crystals!”
Jian Chen studied the tablet that was engraved with words as he made his way through the streets of the Observance Heaven City, carefully sensing the power inside.
He discovered that the power of seals within the tablet definitely did not originate from Yu Changkong alone. Apart from him, he sensed the power of several dozen other seals from the tablet that was only the size of a hand.
On top of that, these powers were divided into two levels.
“The first level should correspond to Hundred Immortal Commandants like Yu Changkong, while the second level should belong to Thousand Immortal Generals.”
“This tablet alone contains the power of so many officials of the Observance Heaven City. Looks like these people are all supporters of the gambling parlour,” Jian Chen thought to himself.
Before he knew it, the match to determine the top six finally arrived. Five huge projections suddenly appeared over the Observance Heaven City.
The upcoming battles were clearly different from before. During the previous rounds, the outside world was unable to spectate the battles.
But from this round onwards, each round would be made public to the outside world.
Jian Chen and the ten other competitors were forcefully transported to an independent space by the power of the Observance Heaven City again.
It was the same place, except only the eleven of them remained from the initial one hundred and seventy three.
Jian Chen subconsciously studied the ten others and discovered that they were all filled with energy. Perhaps they had not returned to their peak conditions, but they had recovered at least eighty percent of their full strength.
Very soon, eleven balls of light appeared above their heads.
Everyone subconsciously turned towards the eleven balls of light. Their eyes burned with eagerness.
That was because there would be another bye for this round. The person who drew the bye would not have to participate in the fighting and would directly advance into the top six.
At the same time, that was also the last bye available.
After the top six came determining the top three!
The last three people would have a battle royale to determine the final victor.
“I wonder who’ll receive the bye this time,” Xia Mingtian of the Immortal Feather sect looked at the eleven balls of light in the air and murmured to himself.
“There’s someone who received every single bye earlier. Who knows what kind of luck he has. It’s impossible for him to receive another bye this time, right?” a middle-aged man in black robes said indifferently.
He was a great elder of the Vanishing hall. He was called Dun Xu.
The Vanishing hall was not as great as the twelve courts of heaven, but they were not much worse either. They were renowned throughout the world.
“Hehehe, if that guy gets the bye again this round, I think we don’t even need to compete anymore. He can just take first place. That’s because skipping two rounds in a row is already unprecedented. If he receives a third bye, he’s clearly been decided beforehand already. No matter how we fight, we’ll just serve as foil to him.” Zi Huaiyu of the Luo clan smiled.
“The posts of the Observance Heaven City have always been earned through strength. How can you say it was decided beforehand? There’s never been any precedent for that either.”
“Indeed. The artifact spirit of the Observance Heaven City is renowned for its impartiality. It has always strictly adhered to the rules its master set down in the past. Why would it demonstrate favoritism towards others?”
“Zi Huaiyu, you’re thinking too much. The artifact spirit of the Observance Heaven City is different from the artifact spirits of other sovereign god artifacts. Here, no one will receive any special treatment unless they are direct disciples of Grand Exalts personally accompanied by the Grand Exalts. However, why would the disciples of Grand Exalts participate in these battles? With their identities and status, they can directly enter the sacred land to cultivate.”
Some Immortal Emperors retorted what Zi Huaiyu said. They did not agree with her.
Zi Huaiyu smiled and did not take any of it too seriously. After all, she had lived for several million years as well. She was obviously aware of the rules of the Observance Heaven City. She had only said that as a side remark.
For a moment, everyone’s eyes were glued on the balls of light above. They wavered; no one took action.
“Since the seniors are all waiting, then let me kick it off.” Jian Chen was unconcerned. He did not have to worry about the depletion of his energy due to his Chaotic Body, and the existence of the Source of Life allowed him to completely ignore any injuries.
As a result, whether he received the bye or not truly held no importance to Jian Chen.
Jian Chen reached out and casually chose a ball of light.
Very soon, the eleven balls of light had all been chosen. However, everyone only clutched their balls of light. No one opened them.
Clearly, they all desired the final bye very much.
Having come so far, there were some differences in strength, but it could not be too much. Every single battle basically required their full strength. If they could avoid a round, it would hold great significance to the battles afterwards.
Crack! With that, someone crushed the ball of light in their hand. A golden number immediately floated out.
“Sigh!” Someone let out a sigh filled with disappointment.
Shortly afterwards, these sounds rang out again and again. The balls of light were crushed one after another and golden numbers floated out.
Nine of the eleven balls of light had been crushed. In the end, only Jian Chen and Zi Huaiyu remained.
For a moment, everyone looked towards Jian Chen and Zi Huaiyu.
“Hmph, I refuse to believe that you will receive another bye.” Zi Huaiyu snorted gently. Her gaze wandered around the ball of light in her hand as she immediately became filled with mixed feelings. That was a result of both excitement and uneasiness.
Right when Zi Huaiyu was about to crush her ball of light, she suddenly raised her head and said to Jian Chen, “Chang Yang, can we exchange our balls of light?”
“That’s obviously not a problem.” Jian Chen smiled and tossed the ball of light in his hand over without any concern.
He did not care about missing out on a round because that was not important to him.
Zi Huaiyu also tossed her ball of light towards Jian Chen. She caught Jian Chen’s ball of light and closed her fingers around it. It shattered with a crack.
Immediately, a streak of dazzling golden light emerged. A golden number floated out.
Zi Huaiyu shuddered and immediately blanked out.
It was not just her. The other Immortal Emperors all narrowed their eyes in disbelief. The same person would receive the third bye!
This was definitely unheard of.
“I didn’t expect my luck to be so good. I’ve actually received another free round.” Jian Chen smiled easily and immediately crushed the ball of light in his hand. Sure enough, it was empty inside.
“The bye originally belonged to fellow Yu. Fellow Yu, I just struggle to understand how you managed to pull off something like this.”
“Great elder Yu was actually… I don’t even know what to say anymore.”
“Hahaha, you just gave away your bye like that. Zi Huaiyu, this is what you chose yourself.”
The nine other Immortal Emperors present were all amused by this dramatic turn of events, while Zi Huaiyu’s face became extremely ugly. She was filled with regret.
But in the end, she could only let out a sigh and accept her bad fortune. She entered the ancient battlefield without muttering a word.
Watching Zi Huaiyu leave, Jian Chen shook his head gently. Perhaps he was the only one aware that the outcome would be the same regardless of whether he switched his ball of light or not.
No matter which ball of light he took, he would receive the bye.
The three consecutive byes left Jian Chen extremely certain that the artifact spirit of the Observance Heaven City was secretly assisting him.
Very soon, the ten competitors entered the ancient battlefields. Only Jian Chen remained in the waiting area.
The projections of the five battlefields also appeared in the Observance Heaven City, drawing over everyone’s attention.
As they watched the devastating battles of the Immortal Emperors, everyone also discussed the person who skipped this round. Sighs of amazement rang out everywhere.
“It makes no sense. It makes no sense at all. Apart from Chang Yang, all of the Immortal Emperors are at the Ninth Heavenly Layer, yet so many of them have been eliminated, while Chang Yang who’s only at the Sixth Heavenly Layer is able to enter the top six.”
“A mere Sixth Heavenly Layer Immortal Emperor can actually fight his way into the top six. Just the thought of that is terrifying.”
“What do you know? It was all luck that Immortal Emperor Chang Yang could make it into the top six. He alone received three byes. This clearly isn’t fair to the other competing Immortal Emperors.”
Jian Chen was unaware that he had already become a hot topic in the Observance Heaven City. Currently, he sat in the air as his gaze moved between the five battlefields, focusing on the battles of the others.
This round lasted for almost a month before coming to a complete end. The five victors exited the ancient battlefields with injuries.
With that, the top six had been determined, and Jian Chen became one of them effortlessly.
