Chapter 1056 - Top 5
"Now, it is time for the last battle of the Top 10." The Host said as Jill returned to the Partic.i.p.ants Area. "Ellen Ashford Vs. John Hall." The Host called.
This is the last fight of the Top 10; with it finished, the Top 5 will be selected, that will be quarter-final, only winning the match will be one reach the semifinals that will happen today.
Ellen and John went out through the two doors and minutes later; they reached the Arena where their fight started with the permission of the referee.
The strange thing happened as the fight started, unlike her opponent John, Ellen did not use her bloodline. She had just summoned her white sword and moved to fight.
A frown couldn't help but appear on my face when I saw her body, even Edmond and Jill, who gave me the same feeling as she had shown some of their power when fighting.
Soon the frown eased on my face, Ellen is not someone who will get drunk on power and think less of her opponent, especially at this stage, and I was right when I saw the momentum Ellen is moving toward John and got quite shocked.
Her speed is great; I could see the resistance of Air when she moved through it, though her speed could not be compared to speed; it is extremely fast, a little slower than what I got when I activated the full power of my runic armors speed formations.
Which is a shocking thing as she is just using just her physical energy, not her bloodline? Even if she had hidden the visual effect of the activation of her Bloodline, the energy fluctuation would be sensed no matter how much energy control she had, but there is nothing.
It is quite difficult to gain such immense physical strength while still being a knight. It is likely the work of her bloodline; it is strengthening her body pa.s.sively; it is quite common for a bloodline to do that.
The more powerful the Bloodline is, the more pa.s.sively it will strengthen the host's attribute, and since Rachel's Bloodline is an Apex bloodline, it is not that surprising for her to have such scary physical strength.
Finally, both of them clashed and were equally matched, which seems to make John unhappy as the fury dawned on his face, and he started to attack crazily while Ellen was defending against them at the east.
Despite using his full power and Art, John is still incapable of pus.h.i.+ng Elena; he could only fight her to a standstill.
Here in the Partic.i.p.ants area, the four of us watched the fight very very carefully. Ellen is going to win, and there is no doubt in that, so we are watching every move carefully to create a plan to defeat her.
It is especially true to Edmond and Jill, who both were till now watching the leaning relaxdaily from their chairs have not strained up and now watching the fight with their abilities.
The fight continues with John using all his abilities while Ellen is calmly countering them. This lasted for five minutes before Ellen launched her offensive and started to push back against John.
My expression couldn't help but change, seeing that I know things will happen but did not happen this quickly. Ellen continued to push back, and three minutes later, her while the sword was on the neck of John.
There was quite dessapointment on John's face when a sword appeared on his neck, but he accepted defeat, and both of them walked out of the Arena in deafening cheers of the audience.
"Well, quite a fight, isn't it?" The host said to the audience as she appeared on the Arena; to her question, the audience cheered loudly, showing their emotions.
"Now that the Top five had been selected, It is time for Quarterfinals." The Host said amidst the cheer of the audience as she looked at a screen where projections of five frames were floating.
"As per rules of the Champions.h.i.+p, Edmond Soren will directly be advanced to semifinals as he finished the battle quickest while the remaining four while will have to fight battles to advance into it," she said. The frame of advance, Edmon flew to the Semifinal Bracket.
"Now, it is time for the 1st match of the Quarterfinals." The host said, and frames started. I watched the frames with bated breath as there is a very high chance I will fight those fights.
"The Battle will be between Camilla Johnson and Micheal Zaar." The host announced and finally released the breath that I did not know I was holding.
A faint smile appeared on my face as I saw the name of Camilla. I am very happy it is Camila as I was very sure I would have been no match against Jill and Ellen; they would finish me off within five minutes.
I smiled at my friends as I got up from my spot and walked toward the Arena. This time the audience was even crazier, but I had little experience; I smiled and waved at them as I walked toward the Arana.
Soon, I reached the Arena and came face to face with Camila, looking at me without expression. The only emotion she had on her is battle intent; her eyes are burning with it.
All her intel, abilities, and battle flashed before, and I knew I had to use most of my power from the beginning. She will be harder to deal with than Simon with her Level 10 Elemental const.i.tution.
She had not used the power of her Elemental Const.i.tution last time when she fought against George, but I am very sure she will use continuation now, which will boost the power of her Level 4 tremendously.
It is a good thing I had comprehended the 1st Chapter of my Eldritch Sword Art; otherwise, I would have had no hope to win this round.
"Both of you ready?" The Hostess/Referee asked, and we nodded in unison.
"Fight," she said and disappeared from her spot.
