I Am A Prodigy - Chapter 786
Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
Anthony was still holding onto the short sword in his hand. His eyes were full of solemnity.
Sean, sporting his head full of blonde hair, smirked arrogantly.
“From the looks of it, England is prepared to fight,” Sun Hongtao said in a deep voice.
“I hope England can severely injure the Murican team,” Jingshan said with anticipation, “Come On! ”
“Anthony versus Sean. Let the match begin!”
Following the referee’s order, Sean went on the offensive.
His weapon was a longsword. In an instant, the entire longsword was covered in a layer of golden light. It was extremely dazzling. At the same time, a sharp aura spread out, hurting the eyes of the observers.
“The metal element is sharp indeed!” Zheng Dali said in a deep voice, his eyes filled with fear. “If us martial artists fight with him, we will be at a disadvantage!”
“In the earlier stages, awakened ones do have an edge over martial artists as their abilities are very focused and extremely refined.” Tie Jun said.
“As I said before, what you are training is spiritual energy while they are trained in the elements. They are two different attributes and each has their own strengths. Are you comparing spiritual energy to metal element’s sharpness? Isn’t that using the enemy’s strength to fight against your own weakness?” Sun Hongtao said lightly.
Ye Lingchen watched the match. However, it was undeniable that in the early stages, when there were not so many tricks to utilize the spiritual energy of a martial artist, an awakened fighter would indeed have a certain advantage against a martial artist.
Lightning flashed under Anthony’s feet, and his body turned into an afterimage as he retreated rapidly.
Sean’s longsword shot out a streak of golden light, easily sinking into the ground and leaving a deep mark.
The next moment, Sean looked in the direction where Anthony had retreated. He raised his longsword up high, and a golden swordlight soared into the sky. An even greater sword Qi was released and slashed toward Anthony!
Wu Tianbao explained, “Anthony is injured, so he wanted to avoid a direct confrontation and drag it out. However, Sean clearly did not let him have his way. His attacks had been suppressing Anthony all the while, forcing him to fight head-on!”
The longsword swept across the ring and golden light exploded. Dust and rocks flew everywhere.
Within the dust cloud, an electric arc suddenly shot out, heading straight for Sean’s face!
Sean’s expression remains unchanged. The longsword in his hand stabbed out, easily cutting through the electric arc. However, right at that moment, another electric flash appeared right under Sean’s feet!
Anthony’s body slid against the ground. The short sword in his hand rolled with the electric current, stabbing straight into Sean’s abdomen!
It was a high speed surprise attack, like a venomous snake!
However, when the short knife stabbed into Sean’s body, the sound of metal colliding rang out.
“Is that an armor?!”
Jing Shan’s eyes widened. “The defense is crazy. This is against the rules. He’s actually wearing armor?”
“It’s not armor! ” Tie Jun said directly, “It’s the metal element’s defense!”
“That’s right. Besides being sharp, the metal element also has another characteristic, which is hardness,” Sun Hongtao said lightly.
Everyone frowned slightly. The advantage of an awakened was too obvious.
After missing the first attack, Anthony was also slightly stunned. Then, he narrowly avoided Sean’s follow-up attack.
Ye Lingchen frowned slightly.
Sean must have purposely created an opening to bait Anthony’s attack. However, why did he not attack immediately? If he had not missed, the victor would have been decided just then.
However, when Ye Lingchen noticed the electric current on Anthony’s short blade, a glow of revelation appeared in his eyes.
It was the numbing effect of the electric current!
Indeed, one had to pay special attention to the characteristics of the awakened ones when battling them.
“Anthony’s power is a little lacking,” Wu Tianbao said suddenly.
Indeed, not long after he finished speaking, Sean’s golden sword light slashed onto Anthony’s thigh. Fortunately, the people from England shouted out their surrender at the first moment, so the injury was not too serious.
“It’s a pity that Anthony is injured. Otherwise, it would have been an even more exciting battle,” Wu Tianbao said regretfully. “Next, let’s invite the second participant from England, Joey, to the stage.”
Joey was an earth element awakened one, and his specialty was strength and defense. However, he was already injured, and after exhausting a great portion of Sean’s spiritual energy, he was defeated.
Right at that moment, Sean chose to leave and switch, sending Owen in.
“What a pity. ”
Sun Hongtao sighed lightly, “Murica is too cautious. If Sean continues to fight, he will most likely be injured by the third participant from England and he will pose less of a threat to us.”
After saying that, he even glared at Ye Lingchen. ‘See how cautious and how much he loves himself?”
Ye Lingchen curled his lips in disdain.
There were only a few chances in life to show off, how could he miss it?
Owen was of water element and was up against Alex of the metal element.
Although Alex was of the same metal element as Sean, the two went on completely different paths.
One controlled metal, while the other enhanced metal with the ability to penetrate and defend. It was unknown whether it was because of the different awakened abilities or due to differences in training directions.
Thinking about it, the awakened ones were the same as the martial artists, having different factions.
Owen’s weapon was a whip. During the battle with the Deutschland, he once showed an attacking move that caught Ye Lingchen’s interest.
Ye Lingchen had been curious about how Owen could attack using water element. Later on, he found out that Owen covered his whip with water, drenching the whole whip in it. It was only two meters long, but it had a swinging reach of over ten meters.
Moreover, this whip was really like a water dragon. It could change its shape at will, making it hard for people to defend against it.
A wet towel can be very painful when hitting people. The power of the water was very strong. One whip was comparable to a machete.
Murica was so cautious that they defeated England without any unexpected outcomes.
With the referee’s announcement, that afternoon’s match ended.
The two contestants were China and Murica. In two days, they would compete in the finals.
After that, it would be the Sun Nation against England, competing for third and fourth place.
That night, Ye Lingchen and the others did not talk about the tournament anymore. Instead, they had a good rest, which was rare for them.
The next day.
In the morning, Tintu fought against Deutschland.
Although Tintu suffered significant injuries, Deutschland was not much better off either. Moreover, the participants from Deutschland were not very powerful. Naturally, Tintu turned out victorious.
In the afternoon, Hellas was fighting against the Stick Nation.
There was no competition at all and Hellas advanced without any issues.
Sung-Yoon Lee’s face was dark and gloomy, so much so that one could wring ink out of it. He looked at Ye Lingchen and wanted to slaughter him.
If it were not for Ye Lingchen’s ruthless attacks, they would not have been in such a situation. All of Stick Nation’s battle power had been destroyed, and there was not even a single person left standing.
Ye Lingchen ignored Sung-Yoon Lee’s gaze. He even found it laughable.
‘What’s this? The last place dares to have an opinion about the champion?’
