The English team consisted of three men and a woman. The woman stood out among them; even though she was wearing an ancient costume and accessories, she still had an elegant demeanor. Her golden pupils displayed a hint of nobility; humbling the others.
The golden-eyed girl was being modest and polite. She immediately greeted the crowd elegantly as she walked onto the stage.
Mu Nujiao responded politely, too. The atmosphere was a lot different than when the team was fighting the Egyptian team.
However, despite how polite the English team was, the pressure that the Chinese team felt did not fall even the slightest. It did not feel pleasant at all.
“My name is Ayleen. It’s my first time visiting China. I am pleased to meet you,” the golden-eyed woman smiled. She seemed to have a good impression of Mu Nujiao.
Mo Fan nudged Li Kuang on the elbow and said softly, “That woman is pretty tall, but her chest is quite big too!”
Li Kuang immediately glanced forward and was shocked to see the huge cleavage peeking through the round collar of the uniform the woman was wearing. It was rare to see someone with such a remarkable physique in their country!
“What are you two thinking about!?” snapped Mu Nujiao. “Focus on the battle, be serious!”
Bai Dongwei glanced at the advisors before hesitantly declaring the start of the battle hesitantly.
The four representatives of the English team did not attack first. They were smiling calmly, as if they were treating the Chinese team to a meal instead of having a duel.
“What the heck are they smiling at? Dongfang Lie, give them a big one!” said Mo Fan.
“Don’t tell me what to do!” Even though Dongfang Lie was not too pleased with Mo Fan’s order, he still gathered his flames right away.
It was not like Dongfang Lie had not improved lately. Everyone could tell that his Fire Element Soul Seed had grown a lot stronger. Its aura was already stronger than Mo Fan’s Rose Flame.
“Fiery Fist: Fiery Dragon!” Dongfang Lie immediately cast his strongest attack at the start of the battle!
The spell he cast was stronger than the fourth tier Fiery Fist: Nine Dragons. The nine dragons had all combined into a single fiery dragon, sweeping at the English team in a blaze of fire.
The Fiery Dragon sprang forward at a remarkable speed. The representatives of the English team were quite surprised by the spell.
Fifth-tier Fiery Fist? Mo Fan opened his mouth wide. He was quite shocked when he saw the fiery dragon ramming forward while uttering a menacing cry.
Dongfang Lie grinned. If he had not learned the fifth-tier Fiery Fist, he would never have dared to challenge the English team. The advisors happened to be watching the battle, too. Perhaps they would be impressed by his performance, giving him a better chance to join the national team.
The golden-eyed Ayleen opened her mouth slightly. The red light of the flames shone on her fair face.
“This is a country with concealed talents indeed! Even a talented person like him is only a mere defender at the Training Hall!” exclaimed Ayleen.
While giving the compliments, a purple-blue Star Pattern appeared under her feet. After the first Star Pattern was drawn, the second, and third Star Patterns appeared quickly. They circled around the golden-eyed woman Ayleen and formed a Water Star Constellation, setting off the sacred, glamorous woman with its brilliance!
“Water Curtain!” She tapped softly at the air in front of her. A watery rune spread swiftly and formed a barrier made from a waterfall hanging before the English team.
Even though the Fiery Dragon looked unstoppable, it was immediately extinguished by the Water Curtain when it collided with the watery barrier.
The seemingly unstoppable spell was gone within the blink of an eye. The Water Curtain perfectly nullified the Fiery Fist: Fiery Dragon.
“This…” Dongfang Lie was stunned.
How could anyone cast an Advanced Spell so quickly? What the heck could he possibly do? Even by using all he had, he had no chance of breaking through the defense of the Water Curtain set up by the golden-eyed woman!
“She is so adept at casting the Advanced Spell. It’s a no-brainer who’s going to win the battle!”
“England is really a place with crazy talents. That girl is only in her twenties, yet she is already so adept at casting the Advanced Spell…”
The battle had only just begun, yet a sense of hopelessness and despair already surged through the spectators when the outcome suddenly became predictable.
“I’ll handle the offense, it’s been a while since my William last had his exercise,” said Sade, who was standing beside Ayleen.
As Sade uttered a chant, the Door of Contract slowly opened, and a griffin covered in golden feathers sprang out. It let out a long cry and soared rapidly into the air. The light from the ceiling of the Training Hall shone on the griffin’s feathers and reflected sacred lights across the stage.
The golden griffin beat its wings. Its sharp eyes locked onto Dongfang Lie, who had attacked the English team first.
The creature was like a giant, golden sword, diving down from the sky, aiming to slash the person on the ground in half!
Dongfang Lie was stunned. He quickly fled for his life.
“Save me, save me!” yelled Dongfang Lie.
“Forest of Kun!” Mu Nujiao reacted swiftly and quickly summoned a huge shrub consisting of dense thistles to block the golden griffin.
“You’re only getting yourself trapped!” Sade smiled.
The man in a handsome suit beside Sade smiled too. His eyes emitted a dark purple flicker, which turned into a cracking bolt of lightning flying to the space above Mo Fan and his crew.
“Thunderbolt!” The voice of the man in the suit sounded imperious. Lightning bolts struck down at the ground fiercely, each producing sparkles across the place.
The man’s Lightning Spell was relatively quick. Normally, Mo Fan’s Thunderbolt would only summon a dozen or so lightning bolts, but the man had already sent out more than thirty, and it still showed no sign of stopping. The Forest of Kun was hindering the team’s movements, and the lightning bolts were able to find their targets easily.
Mo Fan was in a fairly good spot, since he could endure some hits with his Lightning resistance. However, the others were all in a pinch. They almost had to use their defensive equipment.
“Attracting lightning by oneself!” A flicker of lightning burst out of Mo Fan’s body, absorbing the energy of the Lightning Element around him.
It was quite easy to redirect lightning bolts. Mo Fan had turned himself into a lightning rod, forcing the lightning bolts to focus on him.
“Back to you!”
The lightning bolts surrounded Mo Fan. Before they inflicted any damage to Mo Fan, he quickly used his Lightning Seed Qianjun to unleash a horizontal lightning arc…
The lightning arc basically cleared a path for the other lightning bolts, leading right in the direction of Ayleen and her crew!
The man in a suit was stunned when he saw the lightning bolts coming back at them.
“Using lightning to direct lightning… interesting, let me handle the guy with lightning!” the man in the suit grinned.
The man left the team and constructed a Wind Track. He was guiding the lightning bolts away using the same method.
Mo Fan clenched his fist. He suddenly detonated the energy of the Lightning Seed Qianjun while the man in a suit was confidently playing with the lightning bolts.
The Lightning Disaster turned the lightning bolts into a cage entrapping the man in a suit. His face turned pale immediately as he summoned his armor in a panic to defend himself.
The man in a suit, Herbert, had a dark face when he realized he had been set up!
He did not expect his opponent to have the fourth-tier Thunderbolt, nor did he expect the man to have such outstanding control that he was able to hide the enormous energy of Lightning Disaster in just a single Thunderbolt…
“Herbert, you’ve been too careless,” criticized Ayleen when she saw Herbert already pulling out his Magic Armor.
“Humph, as long as the outcome is the same, leave the lightning guy to me!” Herbert answered in a serious voice.
A golden, brilliant light encapsulated Herbert as several Star Patterns appeared under his feet. The Star Patterns intertwined and drew a complete Star Constellation.
The faces of the defenders turned paler when they saw the brilliance of the Star Constellation emitting from Herbert’s figure.
Another Magician able to cast Advanced Spells adeptly, and he seemed to be an Advanced Lightning Magician!
Herbert already had his eyes on Mo Fan. Countless beams of light appeared around him and turned into arrows scattered across the place.
“Go!” Herbert fired all the light arrows in Mo Fan’s direction.
Mu Nujiao, Dongfang Lie, and Li Kuang spread out immediately. Mo Fan was running away, yet the light arrows were chasing after him like homing missiles…
“Space Rhythm: Time Stasis!”
Mo Fan drew the silver Star Pattern when he realized he could not run away.
The space around Mo Fan came to a near-halt all of a sudden. Even the airflow had slowed down significantly.
The light arrows that were chasing after Mo Fan slowed down as they entered the field.
“Space Element!?” Herbert was astounded when he saw his Advanced Spell losing its effect.
“Telekinesis!” The light arrows slowed down after entering the space under the effect of the Time Stasis. Mo Fan immediately used his will to construct a wall to intercept the arrows…
“Damn it!” Herbert was annoyed when he saw his Advanced Spell being nullified by an Intermediate Spell and a Basic Spell.
“Griffin, attack him!” The summoner Sade gave the command to the golden griffin flying in the air when he saw Herbert’s attack failing to achieve its goal.
“I don’t need your help!” snapped Herbert furiously.
“Winning is our primary focus,” Sade replied, ignored Herbert’s temper.
The golden griffin swung its sharp claws as it ambushed Mo Fan from behind at a remarkable speed.
“Back off!” Mo Fan used his will to stir up a strong gust of wind, trying to drive the golden griffin back.
However, Mo Fan had underestimated the golden griffin’s strength. It provided some resistance to the fierce beast, yet it was not enough to stop the beast’s claws!
