Chapter 1471 - Emily Vs. Elijah
"It is time to begin the last phase of the World Championsh.i.p.s, The Top 100," Marla said, and the audience cheered out loud; this was the moment they were waiting for.
It had been nearly two hours since we sat in the partic.i.p.ant's area; there had been performances from celebrities, speeches from leaders, and the introduction of the partic.i.p.ants, it made the crowd quite bored, and now they want to see some blood.
"Lets begin the first battle then," Marla said, and projection of Top 100 appeared, and they shuffled till two projections moved out of them.
"The First Battle will be between Emily August of Silverstone Academy Versus Elijah James of Sundering Peak," Marla announced, calling out two partic.i.p.ants from the Partic.i.p.ants area.
Two of them got up and flew toward the arena, "That boy going to get crushed by Emily, it would be lucky if he would be able to last more than ten minutes," Mary said beside me, and Elina nodded in affirmations.
Elijah James is a short, shy-looking young man, is one of the three people from the Emperor Grade organization that we're able to reach the Top 100; the other two are Elina and Me.
He is quite good for Emperor Grade organization, able to win ninety-three matches of his group to reach the Top 100, but barely, some of his fights seemed really desperate, so unless he is hiding his strength very well, Emily will chew him up and throw him out.
The whole arena shouted as the countdown finished and Emily moved; she did not want to give any chance to her opponent as she moved with blurring speed and attacked him with the art.
People thought it is game over from him seeing Emily had attacked him with pretty powerful attacks that would throw him out of the arena, but nothing of that sort happened.
Black runes flashed across his spear as he whipped it toward her coming sword, effectively neutralizing her powerful attack without with shake.
"My G.o.d, he was hiding really well," Elina said in surprise. The attack of Emily was the most powerful attack he had faced in the champions.h.i.+p but seeing how easily he had countered it, it became very clear that he is hiding his power.
"This is Champions.h.i.+p; many people reveal their true power, which they hadn't revealed till now," I said with a smile.
What is happening is nothing surprising; the only surprising thing is the way he has hidden it. He is so good at hiding his strength that even those who had watched his battle frame by frame were not able to say truly he is hiding his strength.
Teams of thousands of people from many organizations dissected every match of the Top 100 hundred to get a gleam of their ability, many organizations have published their results, and nearly all of them said Elijah is his limit.
He able to fool them all means his control over his body and energy is really good, and Emily will have to work really hard to defeat him.
Emily seemed to understand this as well, as she is using one powerful move after another, and she is not holding back any, as Elijah seemed to have to have a hard time defending against Emily's.
She is making him take a step back as he defends against her moves; a few minutes later, some of his bones cracked, and his mouth became b.l.o.o.d.y by vomiting, seeing the state of her opponent, a confident smile came across her face as she is sure that she would win.
This time, I had reserved my judgment of the battles as I am still feeling that there is something more in Elijah; it is too early for one to say Emily will win; I have the feeling that Elijah is still hiding and would reveal that power soon.
Ten minutes later, when lots of his bones broke, and his mouth had become even more bloodied when suddenly Elijah revealed his power.
He coated his speak in black tar-like energy and tore through the powerful attack of Emily before whipping his spear at her head that had made her crashed on the ground hard and unconscious.
It took few moments for the audience to register what happened; the last attack had been too sudden. Nearly all the audience throught that Emily would win, but at the last moment, Elijah burst out with great strength and finished the fight in a single move.
CHEER CHEER CHEER
The moment they realize Elijah's victory, they let out a huge cheer, bringing the smile on Elijah's face who went to his knees due to tiredness; the last move seemed to have tired him quite a lot.
This tiredness could be fake, or it could be real; the last attack was very powerful, and he made it seemed like he prepared for this attack for a while before launching at the perfect moment.
The next opponent of Elijah will have quite a dilemma in figuring out the real strength of his opponent.
"Winner is Elijah James!" Marla declared ten seconds after Emily failed to wake from her unconsciousness.
As Marla declared the winner, people came with a stretcher and carried Emily away while Elija weakly flew toward the Partic.i.p.ants area.
Clap Clap Clap
We clapped as he entered the Partic.i.p.ants area; with the way he fought the match, he deserved our applause. Whether he has more hidden power or not did not matter; winning is the end goal here, and if one wants to use a little insidious strategy, it is their choice.
"Wow, that was quite the end; I did not believe it would end like this," Marla said expertly, drawing out a chuckle from the audience.
"It is time for the second battle," she said as projection appeared in front of her, and they began to shuffle before two images came out.
"Mary St John of Bloodsun Vs. Nathanial Walsh of Wisdom Tower," Marla announced. "Good Luck," Elina and I said in unison as Mary got up from her seat and flew up toward the huge arena.
