In the afternoon, Lin Feng went back to the stage to get ready for the duels for the top three.
"I have four cards; three of these cards have a number and one of them doesn't, the ones who get the one without a number are eliminated.
"The eliminated one can always challenge a university, and if they win they will be in the top three; if they lose, they will just be eliminated.
"It's not about fairness. It's about strength and resourcefulness. Therefore, don't call the rules of this round into question.
"Alright, draw a card!" Jing Rui ordered calmly. He didn't sound too enthusiastic. The disciples at the foot of the stage were surprised by his reaction.
It was a competition and his rule WAS unfair. The university which would draw a card without a number would be half eliminated and would need to defeat another university to have a chance of being in the top three... that was just outrageous!
The three remaining ones, they would all be extremely strong, so the fourth would be under pressure. Nobody thought the University of Stars and Clouds were going to be eliminated. Thanks to Qian Jin Cai Yue and Lin Feng, they could easily finish first!
Godly Ancestor Xing Yun was also really strong. So, the fourth university definitely wasn't going to be the University of Stars and Clouds.
"Come pick up cards and bring them to your representatives," ordered Jing Rui, glancing at the disciples of the four universities.
Lin Feng glanced at Di Shang. Di Shang understood and nodded, going up to the center of the stage.
Gigantic Hawks University sent Di Xia, so the two brothers would confront each other. The atmosphere on the stage was quite cold.
Di Xia glanced at Di Shang disdainfully. "Heheheh! I hope you won't pick a blank card."
"Hehe, mind your own business!" replied Di Shang. He didn't fear his brother, but one could feel the hatred they had for one another.
Jing Rui didn't pay any attention to them. He just waited for the four disciples to bring the cards back to their respective representatives.
Bai Tang was chosen to pick the card for Bai Clan University.
Jie Yu picked the card for World Dragon University. He felt perturbed, as the weakest university in the top four was World Dragon University. Thanks to Qian Jin Cai Yue and Lin Feng, the University of Stars and Clouds would be sure to finish in the top three!
Therefore, Jie Yu hoped he wasn't going to get a blank card. If he did, then their university would be forced to challenge someone, and their chances of winning would be quite low. It would be much harder to finish in the top three if they picked the blank card.
World Dragon University would be happy to finish in the top three. When a university finished in the top three, they were automatically qualified as a core university for the following Great Competition of the Universities, and didn't need to go through the preliminary exams.
Jie Yu was lost in thought for a few seconds, then picked a card, quickly and resolutely. Bai Tang also picked up a card.
In the end, Di Shang and Di Xia picked up cards at the same time, glaring at each other aggressively. Neither of them was going to submit.
"I'm not!" shouted Bai Tang when he opened the card. "3" was written on the card. He was so happy he shouted it out loud.
"Haha! Neither am I! Neither am I!" shouted Jie Yu, laughing wholeheartedly. "1" was written on his card.
World Dragon University wasn't half-eliminated, either!
They were lucky. So now, it was between Gigantic Hawks University and the University of Stars and Clouds.
Di Shang took a deep breath and slowly opened his cards. "2" was written on it. He sighed in relief.
"Neither am I," said Di Shang, glancing at Lin Feng and Godly Ancestor Xing Yun.
Lin Feng nodded. Since they hadn't picked up the blank card, things were going to be easier for them.
As for Gigantic Hawks University, Di Xia looked very unhappy. He crushed the card in his hand, but it was useless, as it didn't matter anymore.
"Gigantic Hawks University, are you going to challenge any university?" Jing Rui asked calmly, glancing at Godly Ancestor Ju Ying.
Godly Ancestor Ju Ying looked at Godly Ancestor Xing Yun, Bai Nü, and Godly Ancestor Jie Long. He didn't really pay any attention to Bai Nü; she was Ancestor Nü's daughter, it was better not to offend her, and he wasn't one to dare otherwise.
When Ancestor Nü was furious, it always ended up in a bloodbath!
Godly Ancestor Jie Long also had a strong connection to the World Dragon Clan. The World Dragon Clan was a second-grade influential group and a Dragon Clan; it was better not to offend them, either!
So, only the University of Stars and Clouds was left. Even though the disciples were strong this year, it was better to offend them than the others. Qian Jin Cai Yue had just become a student there, so Ni Huang wouldn't say anything.
After all, there was no connection between the University of Stars and Clouds and Ni Huang. She didn't care about the University of Stars and Clouds.
Thus, Gigantic Hawks University chose their opponent!
"University of Stars and Clouds," said Godly Ancestor Ju Ying, pointing to the people from the University of Stars and Clouds.
Di Xia was overjoyed and clenched his fists, staring at Lin Feng and Di Shang ferociously. Lin Feng had looked at him disdainfully, so Di Shang's older brother also sneered at Lin Feng disdainfully.
It was time for revenge now!
"Uncle, I want to fight," Di Shang said to Lin Feng. Lin Feng was a bit surprised, but when he saw Di Xia's ferocious expression, he understood.
The two brothers had something to prove and it could only be proven on the battle stage. They had to show everybody!
"Alright, you can go," Lin Feng agreed, nodding and slapping Di Shang's back.
Di Shang clenched his fists and took a deep breath, then flashed forwards. He represented the University of Stars and Clouds this time; if he won this fight, the University of Stars and Clouds would finish in the top three. If he lost, the University of Stars and Clouds would be eliminated!
Therefore, he knew that he had to give it his best shot. On top of that, he wanted to get his revenge. He was angry, so he would be merciless.
When Di Xia saw Di Shang who the fighter on the other side was, he immediately agreed to fight!
Di Xia and Di Shang looked very similar. If one didn't look carefully, one would think they were twins.
Many people knew they were brothers and sworn enemies, and they really wanted to kill each other. Many people found that very strange.
"No bullshit. The loser can piss off. Will you dare fight?" sniffed Di Xia, smiling icily and mockingly.
Di Shang nodded heavily. Their Qi was sharply opposed to each other emerged and rolled out in waves. "Of course I will fight! You'll suffer a crushing defeat!"
"Haha! My little brother, have you forgotten what happened back in the days? Do you really think you can defeat me?" said Di Xia mockingly.
Di Shang glared at him. He clenched his fists and his Qi became even fiercer, spilling over the edges of the battle stage.
"Stop talking shit! Take this punch, brother! I've become much stronger!" shouted Di Shang angrily, throwing a punch at his brother as he appeared in front of him in the blink of an eye. His Qi was powerful.
His Qi weighed hundreds of millions of jin, leaving Di Xia extremely surprised. He had the feeling there was something wrong. Back in the days, his little brother used to be a piece of trash; how could he have become so strong?
He had the strength of the sixth Great Supreme God layer, which already proved there was a problem. But Di Xia had the strength of the seventh Great Supreme God layer; even if Di Shang weren't a piece of trash anymore, then Di Xia still had the advantage and he would still win this fight.
At least, that's what he thought.!
Di Xia was confident that Di Shang would never be able to compete with him. He threw a punch back, still looking indifferent.
But Di Xia had underestimated his brother. Di Shang wasn't a piece of trash anymore. He wasn't the piece of trash everybody used to humiliate in the clan. He was the pride of the University of Stars and Clouds, one of the eight young geniuses of the University of Stars and Clouds.
Di Shang's punch was terrifying. He had learned a lot from Lin Feng's fights. The punch attack he used was very aggressive. He had learned it from Lin Feng's "Aggressive Punch" attack.
When their fists collided, Di Xia's expression suddenly changed. He realized he had made a huge mistake, but it was too late.
Phwap! Di Xia was blown away by Di Shang's punch. He nearly fell off the stage.
Everybody went silent. When Lin Feng and Qian Jin Cai Yue saw that, they were surprised. Di Shang had been quite discreet about his real strength!
With that attack, Di Shang had just defeated Di Xia. Thanks to Di Shang, Gigantic Hawks University wouldn't be able to finish in the top three. They were thoroughly eliminated!
Godly Ancestor Ju Ying was astonished. He couldn't believe it. Everything was supposed to happen like that, except they were supposed to win in the end!
But it was a fact, they weren't going to finish in the top three.!
"No! Impossible! How is that possible? How could I lose against a piece of trash?! No!! AAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!"
Di Xia sat up, his face distorting in astonished fury. He stood up, clenched his fists, and charged towards Di Shang like an arrow, his Qi surging around him.
"You piece of trash! I'm going to kill you! AAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!" shouted Di Xia furiously. He wanted to kill Di Shang.
Di Shang was already walking back to the edge of the stage and he was just in front of Lin Feng at that moment. He hadn't thought Di Xia would attack him by surprise, and his expression changed drastically. He didn't have time to turn around and counterattack!
"Piss off!" shouted Lin Feng and Qian Jin Cai Yue, both throwing a punch at the same time. Their godly auras flared, and they both attacked Di Xia at the same time. When they hit him, he was blown away and spun limply through the air.
He crashed at the foot of the stage and a gigantic ten-meter-wide crater appeared!
The crowd at the foot of the stage didn't dare speak. They just looked at Lin Feng and Qian Jin Cai Yue.
Aggressive! Really aggressive!
They had both punched Di Xia so violently, he had even crashed at the foot of the stage!
Now that Di Xia had crashed at the foot of the stage, Gigantic Hawks University was really eliminated!
