Volume 5: Chapter 12 – The Tournament Begins

I nodded with sparkles in my eyes . Mu Zi said vigilantly, “What are you doing? Since you have packed up already, you should go back and rest up . I know that you’re tired . ” After she said that, she got out of her bed and pushed me out of the room . I instantly felt a sense of loss . I worked so hard for nothing today . I looked at the closed door and shook my head as I sighed . I just swayed back and forth as I headed back to my room .

Mu Zi’s door suddenly opened . She ran out of the room in a bouncing and vivacious way . She placed her arm around my neck and kissed my face . I was stunned beyond belief . Mu Zi, taking advantage of this, dashed to her room while I stood there in a daze, unable to react .

I touched the spot her moist lips had pressed on just a moment before . I felt a sweet feeling filling my heart . Even though I was unsatisfied, it was still better than nothing .

It seemed that the strength I showed had frightened the Vice Principal and Principal of Forest Dragon . They didn’t invite us to join them anymore . The Vice Principal of Forest Dragon came to our rooms this morning .

When I opened the door, I saw him . I politely said, “You’re here . Please come in . ”

The Vice Principal of Forest Dragon sat on the couch . “Tomorrow is the competition . How are your preparations?”

I chuckled and said, “We didn’t know how to prepare . We left it as it is and planned to just compete . So how are we going to compete?”

The Vice Principal smiled . “With your capabilities, this competition will be a breeze for you . You will fight with all of the competitors that the other academies choose . Everyday, you will fight two matches . If you win against the last competitor, the championship will be yours . If any of the other academies win against you, that academy will become the champion . ”

I was startled and frowned . “In other words, it will be a tag battle . ”

The Vice Principal awkwardly smiled . “It wasn’t arranged like this at first, but the strength that you had shown us was too powerful . Thus, after discussions between the academies, we decided to use this way to compete . ”  

Ma Ke walked out at that moment . “This method of competition is too unfair . You said you had discussed this with a few of the other academies? Did you discuss this with us? If you want to compete in such a manner, we won’t participate . ”

‘That’s true . If we compete in that manner, even if we are strong, we will definitely pay a price for the last victory . ’ I thought for a while . “How about this? We will follow your arrangement, but only if we are allowed to compete once a day . You need to at least give us some time to rest . ”

The Vice Principal thought for a moment and replied, “Alright . We will go according to what you have requested . I will head back first to change the arrangement . ”

After we bid this devious old man away, we had a group meeting to decide how to deal with the situation .

Si Wa said, “I knew the incident from that day would influence the competition . It has actually become a tag battle . ”

Ma Ke replied, “That’s right! It was unreasonable for them to make the decision to compete in this manner . ”

I replied, “Stop arguing already! It is already finalized . It’s more important to think of a way to deal with the situation . I believe the reason they arranged this tag battle is to decrease our strength before defeating us with a strong opponent at the end . Thus, they will arrange for the competitors to be from their weakest to their strongest . In every match of the competition, it will be a best of five battles . In other words, if the starting competitors are weak, we will be able to win this competition easily . In order to have resting time, I suggest that we fight in two groups . This way, we can rest a day . ”

Mu Zi replied, “How can our team of five separate into two groups?”

I chuckled, “Isn’t that easy? Si Wa, Mu Zi and me will be a group and Ma Ke, Hai Yue and me will be the other group . ”

Hai Yue replied, “Won’t you be competing every day that way?”

I shrugged my shoulder and said, “It shouldn’t matter . I doubt that they could withstand more than a few of my attacks, so it shouldn’t be too tiring . ”

Ma Ke replied, “The suggestion that Boss came up is the best solution right now . Since it is like this, Boss, Mu Zi, and Si Wa will compete first . You must win all of the matches . ”

I smiled . “Relax! Don’t you believe in me? It won’t be a problem . If we meet with an extremely strong person during the second part of the competition, I have a secret weapon . ”

Ma Ke was startled but made a realization . “Xiao Jin?”

I nodded . “That’s right! It’s him . When Xiao Jin and I combine our might, it would even cause some trouble for Teacher Zhen . Hehe . ”

Mu Zi pulled me and asked, “Who is Xiao Jin?”

I replied, “If you give me a kiss, I will tell you . ”

Mu Zi hit my head and said, “Don’t even think about that! If you don’t want to say so, then forget it! Who would really want to know about that?”

I rubbed on the spot she had hit . “If you don’t want to kiss, then forget it . Why do you need to be so fierce?” This made everyone break into laughter .

We wore our magic robes the next day . I wore the light magic robe that Teacher Di had given to me, which is white with golden edges . Mu Zi wore a green magic robe to represent that she uses wind element magic . Hai Yue wore a blue magic robe to represent that she uses water element magic . Ma Ke wore a red magic robe to represent that he uses fire element magic . And lastly, Si Wa wore a yellow magic robe to represent that he uses earth element magic .

After putting on their magic robes, everyone looked unusually energetic . When the five colours merged together, it attracted a lot of attention . When we reached the battle arena of the Forest Dragon Magic Academy, there was a vast crowd in front of us . The interiors filled with teachers and students from the academies while commoners crowded the outer area, full of excitement in lieu of the coming matches .

Our arrival stirred up a commotion within the arena after we entered . . The Vice Principal came over and said, “You have arrived . The other competitors of the five academies have already arrived . ” After he said that, he led us to where the competitors are .

There were a lot of people sitting at a side . They must be the competitors from the five advanced academies .

The Vice Principal said, “Since all of the competitors are here, let’s start the competition . ”

After we all nodded in agreement, we walked to the center of the 3000 square meter competition ground . He announced, “Everyone please keep quiet as the competition is starting . In this round of the competition, the Royal Advanced Magic Academy will be facing the Bi Si Pu Advanced Magic Academy in a tag battle . Can both the teams please decide quickly on their arrangement of competitors and give them to me . ”

The arrangement in the competition was chosen by both teams . It was impossible to know who the opposing team would send out, so it was definitely still stochastic .

I walked over and gave him the match line-up\ . The first battle will be me; the second battle will be Mu Zi’s turn; the third battle will be Si Wa’s turn; the fourth battle will be  Ma Ke’s turn; and lastly, it will be Hai Yue . We would definitely not allow our opponents to persevere to the end .
