Chapter 7: A Flea and A Giant
Translator: Henyee Translations Editor: Henyee Translations
The ring area was about the size of a football field. At this moment, it was already crowded with people.
The Skyfire Base was controlled by Wolf Walk Guild, so were the bookmakers of gambling here.
A large sum of money was bet on Li Xiaonian’s victory. As the vice-president of the guild, Lang Burang immediately received the news.
Hearing this news, Lang Burang frowned and said to Xiaolang, “Don’t save him any face in the match. In any case, we must win. There are big customers betting on June’s win.”
Slightly surprised, Xiaolang asked, “Big customers? How big?”
Lang Burang answered calmly, “900 gold coins, bet on June to win within six minutes, and 10,000 gold coins, bet on June’s win.”
Xiaolang’s heart trembled. Ten thousand gold coins, which was a million yuan. In the entire Skyfire Base, except for Tianyu, he really couldn’t think of any other player who could bet so much money in one breath.
“Tianyu?” Xiaolang looked at Lang Burang.
Lang Burang nodded his head. “Very likely.”
Langxiao frowned. “Do June and Tianyu know each other?”
There was only one reason for Tianyu to bet so much money on June’s win, that was, he was quite familiar with June and believed that June could easily win. Otherwise, only a fool would do this.
“I don’t know. I hope it’s not what we think.” As he said, Lang Burang rubbed his head. “The Red Legion does prohibit its members from joining any guild, not even temporarily.”
Li Xiaonian squeezed into the crowd and tried to get in the ring.
As soon as he approached, he was immediately squeezed out by a group of players and they stared at him unhappily.
“What are you doing? Didn’t you see that there is no place in front? Stop squeezing, you idiot!”
The corner of Li Xiaonian’s mouth twitched slightly. “I’m June. I need to get in the ring. Please let me pass.”
Everyone couldn’t help laughing.
“You? June? Why don’t you say you’re the brother of the president? That excuse would sound more convincing.”
“Dude, you know what, before you, three players claiming to be June had already squeezed to the front. We’ve been fooled by the three bastards. We’re pigs if we believe you.”
Li Xiaonian had no choice but to set his ID to visible and looked at them. “Now, pigs, can you make way?”
The word ‘June’ was displayed right above his head.
Seeing this, the surrounding players all looked embarrassed and couldn’t help but make way.
When Li Xiaonian walked a little far away, they immediately began to complain.
“F*ck, I really want to kill that bastard. We just said that casually, and he actually called us pigs.”
“Humph, we’ll have plenty of chances to laugh at him when Xiaolang beats the hell out of him. Just wait and see!”
In the ring, Xiaolang and Li Xiaonian looked at each other.
For some reason, Xiaolang suddenly felt an invisible pressure while facing Li Xiaonian who was standing casually.
It must be the big bet that pressures me. Yes, it must be so.
After figuring it out, Xiaolang felt somewhat relieved. Looking at Li Xiaonian, he solemnly said, “In order to show my respect, I will do my best in this match. I hope you won’t let me down.”
Li Xiaonian who had just gained ten years of fighting memory saw through Xiaolang’s timidity at a glance. He smiled. “I told you that I can beat ten of you put together alone. Come on, don’t waste my time.”
Being provoked over and over again, Xiaolang was angered.
Li Xiaonian ignored the opponent and clicked on the combat menu.
System: “You initiated a challenge invitation to Xiaolang. Challenge mode: no level difference mode.”
System: “The opponent accepted the challenge. Since the opponent has reached level 10, your level is temporarily raised to level 10, with health +90, strength +10, constitution +10, dexterity +10, and intelligence +10.”
System: “Please select a weapon.”
There was a row of weapons on the virtual interface of the ring, including swords, knives, shields, magic wands, pistols, sniper rifles, boxing gloves, etc., all of which were common level-10 equipment.
Li Xiaonian chose a dagger at will and clicked OK.
System: “Weapon selected, the battle will start in 10 seconds…10…9…”
Xiaolang chose a shield and a giant axe. After the countdown started, he noticed that Li Xiaonian had selected a dagger, and he scowled.
Even under the professional restraint, June only chose a dagger as his weapon, which was simply an insult to him.
Xiaolang was angry, and the audience in the audience was also in an uproar.
“F*ck, f*ck, I thought June would choose a pistol or a sniper rifle and slowly exhausted Xiaolang’s energy, but he actually chose a dagger.”
“Damn it, did June give up the game?”
“Crazy, he must be crazy.”
System: “The battle begins.”
As soon as the restriction disappeared, Xiaolang yelled coldly, “Rage!”
In an instant, Xiaolang’s body swelled rapidly, his muscles bulged, and even the hair on his skin grew thicker.
In a blink of an eye, he became a giant with a height of 2.5 meters. In the rage state, giants’ HP would increase by 30% and strength by 20%. However, although he seemed very powerful, the shortcoming was obvious. In the rage state, it was easy for the player to lose part of his mind.
Like an angry bull, Xiaolang pounced on Li Xiaonian, yelling fiercely, “I’m gonna make you die a miserable death.”
Twirling the dagger deftly in his hand, which danced at his fingertips like a dancing elf, Li Xiaonian just quietly watched Xiaolang rushing at him.
Xiaolang reached him in a blink of an eye and let out a violent roar.
The giant axe turned into a roaring tiger, rushing towards him.
When Li Xiaonian was about to be hit, he made a stop gesture. “Hold on, I have something to say.”
Xiaolang, infuriated, seemed to be able to kill Li Xiaonian with this blow, but his strong confidence caused him to deflect his axe abruptly.
The giant axe hit the ground to the left of Li Xiaonian, leaving a half-meter deep hole on the ground.
Li Xiaonian smiled and stepped on the giant axe. With a slight kick, along the axe, Li Xiaonian easily climbed onto the shoulders of Xiaolang.
“Big guy, what I want to say is that how can you listen to your enemy in battle? You’re so weak and stupid.”
As he said, the rough dagger was deftly thrusted into Xiaolang’s head.
Weakness attacked, damage doubled.
A deep wound appeared on Xiaolang’s head.
“F*ck! I must bite you to death!”
Fooled by Li Xiaonian, Xiaolang almost went mad in anger. He waved his thick palm backhand, trying to slap Li Xiaonian flying.
However, like a flexible monkey, Li Xiaonian grabbed Xiaolang’s hair with one hand, and jumped backwards. After avoiding Xiaolang’s hand, he swung from Xiaolang’s left shoulder to his right shoulder like playing on a swing.
At the same time, Li Xiaonian’s dagger ran across Xiaolang’s cervical spine.
Weakness attacked, damage doubled.
“Ahhhhh!!!” Xiaolang went mad.
Being humiliated by Li Xiaonian, he lost his mind, discarded his weapons, and wildly thumped his own body with his two huge palms, trying to kill Li Xiaonian.
Unfortunately, he underestimated Li Xiaonian’s flexibility.
Li Xiaonian’s small body jumped up and down on Xiaolang’s body, sometimes hiding on his back, and sometimes in his ribs, and he didn’t forget to stab Xiaolang with the dagger from time to time. No matter how fast Xiaolang tried to slap him, Li Xiaonian could always dodge his palms easily.
Seeing this scene, the audience was all dumbstruck.
“Well… it’s the first time I saw a giant being teased like this!”
“Why do I feel that June is like a flea, jumping up and down, and Xiaolang is tickling himself, scratching here and there.”
“Uh, I feel that way too.”
Four minutes later, Xiaolang’s body flashed gray and was forcibly teleported to the edge of the ring. At the moment, his face was gloomy and scary.
System: “You won the challenge.”
Li Xiaonian smiled faintly, glanced at Xiaolang who seemed still unable to accept the result, and said, “Sorry, Captain Xiao, I won. Could you please get me a Skyfire Base Pass?”
Seeing Li Xiaonian win, the onlookers were all infuriated.
“This game doesn’t count. You cheated.”
“Yes, you cheated. If it weren’t for you asking for a stop suddenly, how could Captain Xiao lose?”
“He cheats, he cheats! This game doesn’t count.”
Cries of anger burst forth from the crowd.
They had no choice. They had all bet on Xiaolang’s win. If Li Xiaonian won this game, they would lose money!
Li Xiaonian looked at the audience and shrugged. “I don’t mind a rematch. It’s up to your captain.” Then, Li Xiaonian looked at Xiaolang. “Hey, big guy, do you want a rematch?”
Xiaolang’s face turned purple with anger and shame.
After the battle ended, he had calmed down. He knew that although June seemed to cheat, the result wouldn’t change much even if they fought again. This guy was strong, very strong.
Everyone looked at Xiaolang, eager to hear the word ‘rematch’ from his mouth.
Li Xiaonian jested, “Actually, if you rolled all over the floor just now, you could easily crack my trick.”
Lang Burang knew he had to do something now. He knew Li Xiaonian won this game with his own strength. He stood up and beckoned the crowd to calm down. “As everyone can plainly see, we’ve lost, but our Wolf Walk Guild can afford to lose. After all, June is an elite of the Red Legion. It’s not a shame to lose to him. Only by acknowledging the strength of others can we face ourselves.”
Lang Burang was really a worthy head of the Wolf Walk Guild. He resolved the embarrassment of Xiaolang’s defeat with only a few words.Read latest Chapters at wuxiamobile.com Only
After pacifying the crowd, Lang Burang looked at Li Xiaonian. “Brother June, I am Lang Burang, the vice-president of the Wolf Walk Guild. Let’s have a chat?”
What a hypocrite!
Li Xiaonian sneered in his heart but still smiled. “Okay, after all, I’m going to stay at the Skyfire Base for some time. Perhaps I’ll need President Lang’s help.”
He had no choice. Although he seemed to be powerful, he was desperately outnumbered by the Wolf Walk Guild. After all, he only had strong fighting skills, but facing a large number of hot weapons, he could only run away.
He was not strong enough yet, so he had to put on a false mask.
