Lin Qi had his hands behind his back, and his face was as calm as the wind at that moment.
And, Ming Wu had been blown off the arena by the strong wind just now.
Whoever fell off the arena would be considered to have lost.
Therefore, Lin Qi naturally won that round.
However, almost everyone couldn’t see how Lin Qi did it.
“How did that storm form?”
“I don’t know. I didn’t see it. Senior Lin didn’t move at all.”
“Did that end just like that?”
“I thought there would be an intense battle. I didn’t expect it to end in an instant.”
“Yeah, I thought so too. I didn’t see it clearly at all.”
The disciples below the arena had begun to discuss among themselves at that moment.
Almost everyone was curious about how Lin Qi had created that storm just now.
Ming Wu from Golden Mountain Temple also had this thought in his mind.
Ming Wu was currently kneeling on one knee below the arena, looking at Lin Qi in disbelief.
He didn’t see how Lin Qi had made his move at all.
Moreover, he didn’t hold back his strength.
He used all of his strength to charge at Lin Q just now.
He wasn’t careless at all!
However, it happened suddenly.
It wasn’t until he was blown off the arena that he realized that he had lost.
Although he was confused, Ming Wu slowly stood up and put his palms together towards Lin Qi.
“Senior Lin, you are indeed formidable.”
“Ming Wu admits defeat in this match.”
Ming Wu bowed slightly as a form of respect after saying that.
It had to be said that Ming Wu was indeed worthy of being an outstanding disciple of the Golden Mountain Temple.
He still lost with great grace, even if he lost.
Guan Zhen nodded his head in approval in the viewing gallery.
“Although Monk Ming Wu lost, he still has great grace. He is a talent that can be created.”
The old monk pressed his palms together and laughed softly.
“Senior Guan, that’s high praise. The young benefactor, Lin Qi, Senior Guan’s disciple, would be the one with a talent that can be created.”
Although Ming Wu had lost, the old monk did not seem to care about winning or losing. Instead, he praised Lin Qi generously.
That point made the other people in the audience feel a little more admiration for the old monk.
As expected of a Buddhist disciple, he looked down on fame and fortune.
However, they were still focused on Lin Qi.
“Senior, did you see Lin Qi’s technique just now?”
Guan Zhen turned to look at Daoist Spiritual Master Yunxiao and asked softly.
Daoist Spiritual Master Yunxiao frowned slightly and shook his head.
“Not only did I not see it clearly, but I also don’t even know what technique Lin Qi used.”
Then, Daoist Spiritual Master Yunxiao turned his head to look at You Yilin and asked with a frown, “Yilin, what cultivation technique did you teach him that even I can’t recognize?”
You Yilin smiled bitterly and said upon hearing his master’s question, “I didn’t teach him any cultivation technique. I only took him to the study room.”
Daoist Spiritual Master Yunxiao asked again when he heard that, “Did he only go to the study room? Didn’t bring any cultivation technique with him?”
You Yilin shook his head and said, “No, at least he said he didn’t bring any cultivation technique with him.”
Daoist Spiritual Master Yunxiao’s frown deepened this time.
Daoist Spiritual Master Yunxiao, as the sect master, was not just a figurehead.
He knew clearly what cultivation technique was in the study room.
Although he didn’t dare to say that he had cultivated every cultivation technique to the extreme, he still understood it more or less.
But he couldn’t see through Lin Qi’s technique.
Not only that but there was also another problem now.
Daoist Spiritual Master Yunxiao’s frown deepened at the thought of that.
Lin Qi only went to the study for a while and didn’t bring any technique with him.
Could it be that Lin Qi could learn such a powerful technique just by looking at it for a while?
Daoist Spiritual Master Yunxiao didn’t believe it.
There was only one explanation left then.
Lin Qi stole the cultivation technique but didn’t register it.
Besides that, Daoist Spiritual Master Yunxiao couldn’t think of any other explanation.
Moreover, even Daoist Spiritual Master Yunxiao couldn’t recognize this cultivation technique!
Daoist Spiritual Master Yunxiao could only think of one answer for such a cultivation technique.
It was the cultivation technique in the jade box in the study.
That was the only cultivation technique that Daoist Spiritual Master Yunxiao didn’t know.
Not only did he not know it, but he also didn’t even know what effect it would have when he cultivated it.
It would be too unbelievable if Lin Qi mastered the cultivation technique left behind by his senior.
It would be far more important than the matter of Lin Qi stealing the cultivation technique.
Daoist Spiritual Master Yunxiao subconsciously looked at Lin Qi, who had already walked down the arena.
“That kid is lovable and hateful…”
Lin Qi returned to Guan Zhen’s back after the competition.
Guan Zhen didn’t ask about the cultivation technique under Daoist Spiritual Master Yunxiao’s instruction.
He had to wait until the competition was over before asking if he wanted to.
After all, the people from the other sects were all here, so it was not the right time to ask.
“Lin Qi, you won the match beautifully.”
Guan Zhen turned his back to Lin Qi and gave him praise.
Lin Qi, on the other hand, answered humbly, “It’s all because of master’s good teaching.”
The audience could not help but look at Guan Zhen upon hearing that.
They did not expect Guan Zhen to be able to teach such an outstanding disciple. It was admirable.
However, they knew their matters well.
Guan Zhen knew it better than anyone else, even though Lin Qi said so.
He had taught Lin Qi almost nothing in the past month.
All of that was the result of Lin Qi’s cultivation.
Not only did he not teach him, even Guan Zhen, his master, could not see what cultivation technique Lin Qi was using.
The people from other sects would probably laugh their heads off if they knew that.
Therefore, Guan Zhen only nodded slightly and continued to watch the next match.
Initially, Lin Qi wanted to relax and watch the other matches.
But, a strange feeling suddenly rose from the bottom of his heart in the next second.
That feeling was as if he was being stared at by someone.
Lin Qi looked to the left subconsciously.
Sure enough, a young man in a red robe on the left was looking at Lin Qi with fighting spirits.
Lin Qi only felt that it was childish, facing such a “Look of Challenge”. He continued to watch the competition after chuckling.
Although Lin Qi didn’t know that young man, he had heard Guan Zhen mention the person in front of him before.
The sect master of Baihua Valley, Hua Wuchang.
The Baihua Valley was one of the three great sects of the Central Plains.
It was as famous as the Baiyun Sect and the Golden Mountain Temple and could be considered a powerful sect.
The young man must be an outstanding disciple of the Baihua Valley since he could stand behind Hua Wuchang.
The next round of the competition ended just as he was thinking.
The host elder said in a clear voice, “The next round will be between the Baihua Valley’s Hua Tianci and the Beihai sect’s Wang Lang!”
Then, a voice came from the left side of Lin Qi.
“Tianci, this match is up to you. Don’t embarrass me.”
