Chapter 1039 - Top 500
"I did not know you know the student of Lady Vivian?" Elina asked as Ellen and Madeline went back to their platforms as the Champions.h.i.+p was about to start formally in a minute.
"We are childhood friends," I replied, "You are lucky to have to have her as your friend," she said as she looked at lady Vivian.
I just smiled at that, though I am happy Ellen was able to find such a powerful teacher; I had no wish to make use of her powerful teacher.
If I wanted to, I would have easily erased the criminal tag of mine with the help of her teacher, but I did not do that. Though it is an undeniable fact that some of the help I took from her had the hands of her teacher, still that help was within limits.
As I was in my thoughts, the champions.h.i.+p formally shouted, the old can came center of the stage and started to say something. This Old man is head of Continents affairs and is quite powerful but not as powerful as the people sitting here.
He started his speech and it lasted for fifteen minutes before the performance of some famous Idols, which had lasted for the rest of the forty-five minutes before the champions.h.i.+p had finally begun.
In the five hundred meters arena, platforms started popping up one by one, until their number reached hundreds.
There are millions of people that have registered for the Champions.h.i.+p all over the continent of which Million have been selected, and now these million will fight from which Top 500 will be selected.
These preliminary rounds for Top 500 will last for eight days before another five hundred will be added, and the real Champions.h.i.+p will begin.
Ellen and I are part of that five hundred lists; it is made from winners of a compet.i.tion held in the different countries and persons referred by the people that sit on the platforms.
For eight days of compet.i.tion, I will not even have to lift the sword to fight, and it is a good thing for me as I will have enough time to comprehend the Art; I just hope I will be able to do it as, without it, I will have no chance against Ellen.
Earlier I was not able to sense her power, but the feeling of a threat she had given me enough for me to know that with my current strength, I am not a match for her. I will need Art if I want to fight against her.
As the people platforms erected, people started to enter them. I looked at Arena # 27 specifically as Jill is going to fight there.
As I was looking, she entered the Arena #27, opposite to a beefy guy named Gavin, who is holding a huge sword.
This guy is pretty powerful, a peak Adamantine. To others, he may have been a tough opponent and would have been lord over the fight, but in front of the jill, he is nothing.
If the feeling that Jill gave me is right, then this Peak Adamantine boy named Gavin is ant to her, she could easily defeat it.
Soon both of them came face to face, and that beefy guy said something to her while laughing lecherously while Jill stared at him without change of expression, and just as the referee started the fight, she disappeared from her and the next moment, bloodied Gavin crashed out of the Arena.
"This is a girl you were talking about, right?" Professor asked. I had told the professor about Jill and feel I am getting from her; it would be great if she can recruit Jill.
I had offered Jill about joining our organization, but she said she would think about it after the compet.i.tion was over. It is very clear that Jill is aiming for the Supreme Organisation, and I do not blame her for it.
If the professor had not saved me, I would have also partic.i.p.ated in the Champions.h.i.+p with the aim of impressing people of the Supreme Organisations.
It is a little regretful that Jill will not be able to join our Organisation; from the sense, I was able to get from her, she is very powerful, and people from these nine organizations would be able to see it clearly.
These people's main purpose to come here is to find seeds for their compet.i.tion, and with their level, they would barely miss any good seeds, so it will be very unlikely that she will be joining our organization, which is not a Supreme Grade Organisation.
After Jill's battle is finished, another fight began right at the next moment; every minute, there is a fight going on every one of those hundreds of platforms, and to my utter surprise, more than half of those entering the arena are Admantines.
This is quite a surprising thing; I've read the data on the past Championsh.i.p.s, and there were never this many Admantines in them. h.e.l.l, there were never 10% of Admantines as they are right now.
Fight after fight kept happening on every platform, and people from egg tower looking every fight very carefully, with their level of strength concentrating on all hundreds of fights and watching carefully, is not a problem.
Since the fights started, the Professor had barely talked a few words. She would always focus on the fights that are happening in the huge Arena, like other people in the Tower; she is completely focused on the fights that are happening below.
I watched the fights for half an hour before I drank a few drops of Soul Tempering Essense and started comprehending my Art.
Professor had told me I did not have to watch all the fights, and if I wanted, she could teleport me back to the mansion after the first hour.
I am going to ask her to teleport me back to the mansion after half an hour. Seeing the power of Ellen, I am feeling intense pressure. I am pretty sure if we fight, she will try to finish me off soon as possible; she will not show mercy, especially to me.
So, I had to increase my strength, even if I did not feel able to beat her, I had to be powerful enough to fight her to draw or at least last an hour against her.
