Chapter 832 –Mental Power Competition Part 5
Strong mental power came rushing over toward Mu Ru Yue once she stepped a foot into the Alchemy Tower, making her subconsciously startled for a moment. Moreover, all of the competitors had been scattered to other places once they entered the Alchemy Tower. Hence, she was the only one standing among the grasses…
Suddenly, rustling sounds were heard from among the grasses, making her raise her head to look at the source of where the sound was coming from. Yet, an enormous figure leaped out of the grasses, directly pouncing toward Mu Ru Yue…
Out of habit, Mu Ru Yue lifted her Heavenly Dragon Flame Sword to battle it. Yet, she shockingly realised that she couldn’t utilize the energy in her body…
“It is no wonder why he said that we can only use mental power to battle as there’s a restriction in this tower.” Mu Ru Yue withdrew her sword. Just as she wanted to release her mental power, the enormous tiger had already neared her. Its sharp claws struck toward Mu Ru Yue.
Mu Ru Yue couldn’t dodge it in time so its claws had dug deeply into her shoulder. Her blood stained her entire robe, dying her robe red…
“This place similarly doesn’t allow the use of energy to dodge. In other words, everyone in here will just be like ordinary people other than being able to use mental power!”
Mu Ru Yue’s gaze became increasingly focused.
‘If that’s the case, I won’t be able to use my other power…’
The tiger had once again leaped toward her while she was in thoughts. Mu Ru Yue instantly retreated a couple steps back, making use of her agility to dodge the tiger’s attack. The robe that was covering her arm was clawed even when she tried to dodge the tiger’s attack.
She hastily closed her eyes to circulate her mental power. Suddenly, a sword had materialised before her. Yet, the sword shattered under the might of the tiger’s claw before she could release the sword.
Mu Ru Yue was forced to retreat a couple steps back, coughing out a mouthful of blood. She wiped off the blood remnants at the corner of her lip with her gaze brimmed with excitement.
“So mental power can be used like this in battle. The Central Region hadn’t used such a way of using mental power to fight. Moreover, I didn’t come to the Eastern Island in my previous life so I only know that mental power can be used in such a fashion at this moment…”
‘The Eastern Island is really far away from the Central Region so I naturally didn’t come here in my previous life. If it wasn’t for Madam Sheng Yue, I similarly wouldn’t have come to this place…
‘Thus, this is my first time knowing about this.’
‘The demon beasts on the first floor are rather weak. The demon beasts will get increasingly stronger as I advance to the next floors. Thus, I should practice on how to use my mental power before heading upwards…’
Mu Ru Yue withdrew her gaze upon thinking about that with a smile. She fearlessly looked at the enormous demon beast that had charged at her once again…
The spectators outside of the Alchemy Tower would not be able to visualise what was happening within the Alchemy Tower, but there were different coloured lights that could be seen being emitted from the Alchemy Tower. Each of those light represented a competitor, allowing them to know which floor the disciple was on.
Mu Ru Yue’s light was white.
They could see that all of the other competitors had advanced to the second floor. Moreover, Su Ning and another guy had charged to the third floor. Only Mu Ru Yue had stayed on the first floor…
“She is too weak as expected!”
Chuan Gu sniggered.
‘She is too weak with her current might. Not to even mention Su Ning, she definitely won’t be a match to any of the other competitors.
‘I really don’t know where her confidence comes from to participate in this competition, filled with excitement.’
“First floor… She is still on the first floor.”
“Can it be she had found a place to hide? But it is useless doing that. She will be disqualified from the competition if she fails to reach the fifth floor by half the day…”
“Hehe! I’m guessing that she actually wanted to give up on the mental power competition but was too embarrassed in admitting it. Hence, she will be staying on the first floor until the competition ends…”
