1516 The Competition 2

    Gasp!

    As soon as Su Lin had spoken, forget about Mu Ying, even the faces of Dong Fang and the others have turned ashen.

    Regardless of who Mu Ying's opponent was, he could always admit defeat and forfeit the competition. However, they did not expect that he would be facing Su Lin this time! Knowing Su Lin's personality, she would never spare anyone related to Gu Ruoyun!

    "Gu Ruoyun, keep a close eye on the arena and pay attention, this fellow will serve as a warning to you!"

    Su Lin then scoffed icily and turned towards the arena.

    A layer of cold sweat had formed on Mu Ying's forehead and his eyes were also filled with panic. One could imagine the kind of pressure Su Lin's words have brought upon his heart.

    "Mu Ying, if you can't fight her, admit defeat! There are rules in this arena. If you admit defeat, she can no longer attack you." Lu Yun raised her willowy brows as her eyes filled with anxiety.

    Mu Ying took a deep breath and forced himself to calm down. He then nodded gently, "Alright, I understand."

    "Hold it."

    Gu Ruoyun cried out softly to Mu Ying when she saw that he was about to walk onto the stage.

    Mu Ying shivered and turned around hesitantly. "Lady Gu, is there anything else?"

    The crowd watched as Gu Ruoyun slowly walked towards Mu Ying, and secretly stuffed a pill into his hand. "Once you enter this fight, Su Lin would never let you admit defeat so easily. Hold on to this pill, it can heal you no matter the injury."

    Mu Ying nodded solemnly and replied in a hoarse voice, "Thank you..."

    He then turned around and continued to walk towards the stage.

    After Gu Ruoyun has returned to the crowd, Dong Fang asked puzzledly, "Lady Gu, what did you say to him?"

    Gu Ruoyun only shook her head and did not reply Dong Fang. She then fixed her attention onto the arena. Her chilly eyes were calm and showed no signs of emotion.

    ...

    Mu Ying clutched the sword in his hand and slowly opened his mouth, "I conc..."

    As the saying goes, a wise man submits to circumstances and Mu Ying was not that stupid to allow himself to be tortured by Su Lin! Hence, he had decided to concede defeat upon stepping onto the stage. Who would have thought that before he could finish his sentence, a fist landed heavily upon his chest and sent his body flying out of the way before he crashed into the furthest corner of the stage.

    It goes without saying that Su Lin has very good control over her power. Even after heavily injuring Mu Ying, she did not allow him to be thrown off the stage.

    After all, if he had been thrown off, the result would be the same as Mu Ying conceding defeat and she would not be able to torture him!

    "If you were unlucky enough to meet your demise on this stage, don't blame me. If there's anyone to blame, blame Gu Ruoyun! It's all her fault!" Su Lin walked towards Mu Ying and placed her foot on his throat. She pressed down violently and he was unable to make a sound. "If you had not interacted with Gu Ruoyun so often, you wouldn't die here! However, you're far too stupid! By associating with her, do you not know that there are many people who wish to have her killed?"

    Su Lin laughed icily and spoke with an eerie voice, "Oh, that's right, you're probably not aware of why the members of the Underworld would help me. It's because I'm more sensible, unlike Gu Ruoyun who knows nothing about the ways of the world! She even had the gall to reject the members of the Underworld. She had clearly dug her own grave by doing that! Even if she dies, it's a well-deserved punishment!"

    "Cough, cough!"

    Mu Ying coughed but his voice was quieter than an insect's as if it was stuck in his throat.
