“Alright, I’ll help you contact him.”
After Lugh left, the lady at the front desk sighed. “It seems like there’s a reason why he became a genius at such a young age!”
Early the next morning, Lugh left Skylight City in a military vehicle.
He was the only one in the vehicle!
The soldier who was driving complained, “Brother, I thought I could have a holiday today!”
Lugh closed his eyes and leaned against the chair. He smiled and said, “Then I’ll tell you another piece of unfortunate news. I’ll be coming to the training ground tomorrow and the day after. I’ll have to trouble you then.”
Hearing Lugh’s words, the driver suddenly had the urge to cry.
In the guest house, Grandet met Sang Kun in the cafeteria.
“Captain, where’s Lugh?”
Sang Kun swallowed the bun and said, “He’s probably at the training ground by now.”
Grandet suddenly lowered his head and sighed. “I’m really convinced.”
Viniya also sighed. “I’m most afraid of people who are more talented than you, and also work harder than you… What should I do?”
Viniya put down the breakfast in her hand. She had not even taken a sip, but she already felt full.
Some people could not help but admire her.
Lugh did not care about what others thought. He just wanted to raise the level of his Rainbow-Colored Glazed Psychedelic Butterfly as soon as possible.
As the sun was about to set, the driver sent Lugh into the hotel.
Three days later, the Rainbow-Colored Glazed Psychedelic Butterfly was upgraded to High-Grade Bronze.
It was at this time that the Southwest City-State’s Youth Genius Tournament was about to begin.
Drawing lots and arranging the competition.
Under the commands of Skylight City, it proceeded in an orderly manner.
The numbers of Lugh and the others would also be re-numbered, but this time, Lugh got Number 7.
Sang Kun told him that the number was custom-made by Skylight based on their strength.
Those with numbers 1 to 25 didn’t participate in the drawing of lots. Participants from numbers 26 to 50 drew lots to choose their opponents.
This way, the stronger participants wouldn’t leave the stage early.
On the day of the competition, when it was Lugh’s turn to go on stage, he noticed that the number of spectators around him was gradually increasing.
“This is the person who eliminated Mo Yun!”
“Number 7 should be a Gold-Grade Beast Master. Mo Yun didn’t lose unjustly.”
“I heard that Quinn issued a challenge to him!”
“With Quinn’s strength, he definitely won’t have any problems.”
Lugh’s opponent was Number 39, a Silver-Grade Beast Master.
To be able to draw a top-five opponent, it could only be said that he was unlucky.
Lugh was still the same as before. The Stormhawk dealt with the opponent’s flying-type pet, then he would personally go up and get rid of the opponent’s Beast Master.
Ever since he obtained the Berserk Bear, Lugh had liked the feeling of close combat.
After two matches in a day, Lugh successfully made it into the top eight.
To Lugh’s surprise, the Gold-Grade Beast Master Number 6 ranked ahead of him was actually eliminated by a Silver-Grade Beast Master.
As a result, only six Gold-tier Beast Masters and two Silver-Grade Beast Masters remained in the top eight.
Skylight City once again announced that they would rest for three days, and the final ranking competition would be held three days later.
Rest for three days?
Of course, Lugh wouldn’t rest for three days obediently.
When he got rid of the lady at the front desk, the driver once again sent him to the training ground. The driver once again had a sad expression on his face, wanting to cry, but no tears came out.
“Why is it you again?”
Three days later, the Rainbow-Colored Glazed Psychedelic Butterfly upgraded to Top-Grade Bronze.
And the final match had arrived.
The final match had arrived as well.
Every Beast Master had to compete with seven other contestants for a full seven matches.
In the end, the rankings were based on the winning rate of the seven matches.
Skylight City was rich and powerful. In this Southwest City-State grand competition, the Beast Master who won first place would receive a reward of ten million federation coins and a Pavilion of Treasures 70% discount VIP card.
Second place would receive 5 million federation coins and a Pavilion of Treasures 50% discount VIP card.
Third place would receive 2 million federation coins and a Pavilion of Treasures 20% discount VIP card.
Fourth and fifth place would receive 1 million federation coins, sixth to eighth place would receive 500,000 federation coins, and a Pavilion of Treasures 10% Discount VIP card.
With these VIP cards, one could enjoy discounts at various branches of the Pavilion of Treasures, as well as participate in all sorts of preferential treatment.
Even Lugh admired this Pavilion of Treasures. This advertisement was indeed powerful.
The eight contestants stood in a row on the arena, receiving the cheers of the audience.
Among them, Quinn and Edward’s name appeared the most.
Quinn turned his head to look at Lugh, but Lugh was in a daze and didn’t notice him.
Quinn and Edward were the number one and number two geniuses of Skylight City respectively.
They had many supporters in Skylight City.
At this time, the Guardian of Skylight City, General Paul, who was in charge of the Southwest region of the Federation, would also appear.
Lugh had heard from Sang Kun that General Paul, who was in charge of the Southwest region, was at least at the King-Grade, or even stronger.
With him overseeing Skylight City, Skylight City was as stable as Mount Tai.
Paul brought the other upper echelons of Skylight City’s military to sit in the audience seats that had been prepared beforehand. The head judge announced that the competition was about to begin.
A middle-aged judge in a military uniform slowly walked to the center of the arena and announced loudly, “The first match: Lugh from Seven Star City versus Edward from Skylight City. Please come up to the stage.”
Paul smiled and said to the people around him, “Are there people from Skylight City coming up to the stage in the first match?”
Paul’s subordinate said to him, “Yes, this is arranged. Each contestant will have to go against the other seven contestants, and the final ranking will be based on the win rate!”
“Mm, not bad. It’s very fair.”
“Edward is very outstanding. He’s already a Gold-Grade Beast Master at such a young age.”
“Yes, it’s a good thing that there are so many talents.” Paul nodded and asked, “What about Lugh?”
“Sixteen years old, a Gold-Grade Beast Master.”
Paul was a little moved.
“But Lugh shouldn’t be Edward’s match. He’s too young, and doesn’t have as much actual combat experience as Edward.”
Paul nodded, agreeing with his subordinate’s thoughts.
Almost everyone in the audience cheered Edward on in unison.
Lugh and Edward arrived at the arena.
Edward looked like an ordinary person, but he had a strong sense of confidence.
When he saw Lugh, he smiled and said, “I didn’t expect to meet you first.”
Lugh said nonchalantly, “It’s okay. We’ll meet sooner or later.”
The referee loudly reiterated the rules of the competition and asked the two contestants to release their pets.
Edward immediately released three Low-Grade Gold pets.
As usual, Lugh only released the Stormhawk.
[Ding! Mission announcement: Defeat Edward.]
[Mission Reward: You can choose a divine pet to fight and its talent will be raised by one level.]
Hearing the system announcing the mission, Lugh was in a great mood.
Lugh was a standard quest maniac. The more missions the system gave him, the better.
The referee looked at Lugh and asked, “Are you ready?”
“We can start now!”
“Then, I announce that the competition has officially begun!”
All the spectators who had watched Lugh’s battle immediately looked up at the sky.
Edward directly ordered, “Golden Vulture, Golden Feathered Body!”
In the air, the body of the Golden Vulture instantly turned golden.
Obviously, Edward knew that Lugh’s Stormhawk was extremely powerful!
“Stormhawk, Chain Wind Blades!”
The Stormhawk continuously flapped its wings, and the huge green wind blades directly attacked the Golden Vulture.
“Golden Vulture, freeze! Charge up and engage in close combat.”
Edward knew that in terms of speed, his Golden Vulture was completely incomparable to the Stormhawk.
In the previous competitions between Lugh and the Stormhawk, the Stormhawk had relied on its speed to directly crush its opponent.
If one wanted to deal with the Stormhawk, the best thing would be to get close to it and finally catch its opponent.
However, something that made Edward feel despair happened.
The Golden Vulture’s Golden Feathered Body only managed to block two of the Stormhawk’s wind blades before its defense was broken through. Its skin and flesh were split open by the wind blades, and it directly fell from the sky.
“How is that possible? Your flying-type pet beast is also just a Low-Grade Gold beast. How could it break the Golden Feathered Body so quickly?”
Lugh replied casually, “Its attack power is also relatively strong!”
At this moment, the battle on the ground erupted.
Edward led the two pet beasts and directly charged at Lugh.
