When they returned to the place where the duels were taking place, Mo Fan learned that the outcome had been decided. However, there was something wrong about the atmosphere.
“It seems like something has happened,” Mo Fan went closer and saw Jiang Yu was injured, then glanced at Li Kaifeng, who was suffering serious injuries on the dueling ground.
The duels were fiercer than he had thought. Jiang Yu had a few deep cuts on his body. Blood continued to pour out. He was swaying back and forth, as if he was going to fall to the ground at any second.
Li Kaifeng was in a worse state. He had lost his right arm. It was lying far away in the dust.
“Meow!” Night Rakshasa’s triangular yellow eyes were glaring at Li Kaifeng. Her pitch-black fur was standing upright, while her voice was extremely chilly.
It was obvious that the Night Rakshasa was extremely furious. It was even displaying a strong murderous intent at Li Kaifeng!
“Jiang Yu, ask her to stop!” Feng Li said sternly.
The Night Rakshasa did not listen to Advisor Feng Li’s order. Her claws were stained with blood from Li Kaifeng’s arm. For some reason, Li Kaifeng had totally infuriated the Night Rakshasa. She was aiming her attack at Li Kaifeng’s neck.
Li Kaifeng was already at his limit. Mo Fan was extremely shocked. What reason could have provoked Jiang Yu’s Night Rakshasa to kill Li Kaifeng!?
“Come back!” Jiang Yu clenched his teeth and gave the Night Rakshasa the order with a pale face.
The Night Rakshasa did not listen. Her speed was shocking, and her movement was unpredictable, as if she could walk in the air. Just as the Night Rakshasa had almost reached Li Kaifeng, several Giant Shadow Spikes suddenly appeared around her and formed a binding formation, immobilizing the speedy creature.
The Night Rakshasa was a Darkness Creature. Normally, the Giant Shadow Spikes were ineffective against it. However, the Night Rakshasa suddenly stopped in the air. Her claws were less than thirty centimeters away from Li Kaifeng.
Li Kaifeng was frozen in his spot. He could feel the death directed at his neck!
Jiang Yu glanced at Feng Li in silence. He immediately opened up his Contracted Space and withdrew the Night Rakshasa into it.
The Night Rakshasa was unwilling to go back, and let out a furious cry…
“I’ll spare your life for now, but this isn’t the end!” Jiang Yu held his wounds. His face was utterly cold, unlike his usual gentle expression!
Li Kaifeng had lost his wits, as if he was having trouble believing the outcome.
He had lost the duel, even after he had cast the forbidden spell!
Nanrong Ni proceeded to treat Li Kaifeng’s wounds, since they were slightly more serious. Jiang Yu walked to one side and sat down to take a rest. He took out some serums to treat his own wounds.
Mo Fan was stunned. He could not picture what had happened at all.
Mo Fan went over to Jiang Yu and took out some of his good serums to help Jiang Yu with his wounds.
While Mo Fan was helping Jiang Yu treat his wounds, he finally realized how terrifying they were. If the cuts were any deeper, they would have torn his organs apart. Li Kaifeng was so close to killing Jiang Yu!
“What the hell happened?” Mo Fan turned around and looked at Zhao Manyan.
“Li Kaifeng used a forbidden spell. No one knew he practiced a spell that has been strictly forbidden by the Magic Associations of the five continents !” Zhao Manyan hissed.
“Forbidden spell?” It was obvious that Mo Fan was not familiar with the term.
“Look at his blood; does it have a strange, blue color to it?” Zhao Manyan pointed at Li Kaifeng, whose blood was pouring out on the dueling ground.
Mo Fan took a closer look and discovered that the blood did indeed have a hint of blue, like some kind of blue ink.
“It’s the Blue Blood Bizarre Magic! It’s able to draw a huge amount of energy from the caster to multiply the power of their spells. It’s difficult to control how much energy is being drawn and how many times the damage of the spells is amplified. In addition to that, the process of learning it is quite inhumane, so the Magic Associations have listed it as a forbidden spell. In the early days, there was an organization called the Profound Mana Association. Its members practiced the spell, and ended up killing lots of people. Since then, the organization has been blacklisted by the world,” said Zhao Manyan.
Forbidden spells and Forbidden Curses were two different things. Forbidden spells were unorthodox magic with uncontrollable power that could harm the caster or other people when practicing it.
Magic continued to evolve, and the spells of many Elements were not necessarily the same as they had been in the very beginning. People had been exploring, searching for new Elements and new power, just to give humanity a better chance of survival in this world full of dangers.
These new Elements usually had to go through long periods of experimentation, testing, and validation before they were officially listed as orthodox magic. As for other new magicks, everyone was forbidden to use them apart from the people conducting experiments with them.
Blue Blood Bizzare Magic was an example of the forbidden spells. It was an ability obtained from the most dangerous Azure-Blue Sea Monsters, able to directly amplify the power of a Mage’s spells. However, the process of learning it was said to be rather sadistic. On top of that, the difficulty of controlling its power and the harm inflicted to oneself when using it were the main reasons it was prohibited.
The spell that Li Kaifeng had used in the duel was the Blue Blood Bizarre Magic. He had obviously violated the rules, and had almost killed Jiang Yu when using it, hence why the Night Rakshasa was so infuriated!
The World College Tournament strictly forbade any forbidden spells. If anyone was discovered using them, the team would be disqualified, and would receive serious punishment. Li Kaifeng had obviously crossed the line by using the Blue Blood Bizzare Art just to win the duel.
Luckily, it did not result in anything too serious. After all, even though the Blue Blood Bizzare Magic was listed as a forbidden spell, it was not regarded as an evil spell. Even evil spells were further classified into different groups. For example, the magic that the Black Vatican used to turn living humans into Dark Beast Monsters and Cursed Beasts was one of the worst evil spells, despised by the entire world!
“We aren’t going to disqualify anyone from the team just by looking at the results of the duels. After all, someone forcibly disqualified a member recently in the wild. But, Li Kaifeng, what you did has really disappointed us,” Song He sighed.
Li Kaifeng was the son of the president of the Education Union. He obviously had a bright future ahead of him. It was not necessary for him to rely on the forbidden spell just to win a duel.
“I’m sorry, advisor, I didn’t want to leave the team. I really want to take part in the tournament in Venice,” Li Kaifeng apologized
“We aren’t the one you should apologize to,” Dean Song He said.
Li Kaifeng finally calmed down. He glanced at Jiang Yu who was treating his wounds. He slowly rose to his feet and walked toward Jiang Yu.
“Your injuries…” Nanrong Ni was trying to tell him that his wounds were not healed yet, but Li Kaifeng continued to walk toward Jiang Yu.
“I’m sorry, I was too desperate to win the duel. It’s my first time using the spell, so I didn’t know it would go out of true control so easily. I hope you understand that I only wanted to win. I never wanted to do any harm to you. I swear, I won’t touch anything like it again in my life,” Li Kaifeng bent forward and apologized sincerely to Jiang Yu.
Jiang Yu looked at him with a cold expression.
Li Kaifeng maintained the same posture, as if he would stay there until Jiang Yu was willing to forgive him.
“Forget it, I didn’t control my Contracted Beast, and she almost killed you,” Jiang Yu said in the end.
Jiang Yu was relatively easy-going on the team. He had never gotten into a fight with anyone on the team. They all wanted to win and earn their reputation in Venice, so it was understandable that someone would act a bit more radically.
“Thank you for your understanding,” Li Kaifeng held his bleeding stump and went back to Nanrong Ni’s side.
The little disturbance was soon over. The advisors did not come to take anyone away. They were just bringing Mu Ningxue back to the team.
The numbers on the team remained the same. The team had an empty slot when Mo Fan got rid of Lu Yilin. As such, there was no need to disqualify any of the current members.
Seeing that Li Kaifeng was very sincere with his apology, the advisors only took away the resources allocated to him as a punishment instead of disqualifying him. He was allowed to stay on the team until the next adjustment. The advisors would then decide if he was worthy to stay on the team or not.
“Mo Fan, come over here!” Feng Li was wearing an unpleasant look after what Li Kaifeng had done.
Mo Fan’s brain started to buzz. He had a feeling that he was in trouble.
“Advisor,” Mo Fan obediently showed up.
“Don’t you think I can forgive you just because of the impressive deeds you’ve done in the past. Why didn’t you let us handle Lu Yilin instead? Do you seriously think we’ll go easy on him just because of his background? You piece of shit, do I look like that kind of a person? I would still put him in jail for plotting against his teammate even if he was the son of Heaven!” Feng Li scolded the crap out of Mo Fan.
Mo Fan subconsciously moved further away with an innocent look.
“The Lu Clan is already asking me to hand you over, do you understand?” snapped Feng Li.
“I could guess it,” Mo Fan said.
“Don’t you think it’s over!. Even if you have all the reasons to justify yourself, you’re not allowed to kill him!” Feng Li said.
“I didn’t kill him.”
“What you did was no different than killing him. Did you feel great? Are you proud of yourself? You undisciplined, disrespectful, lawless prick! If it was anyone else, I’d surely ask them to pack up their stuff, and get the hell out of my sight!” Feng Li scolded him without lowering his voice.
“Hehe, so that means you’ve helped me settle it!” Mo Fan smiled shamelessly.
Feng Li was so pissed that he totally ran out of words. He had never seen any student like Mo Fan!
“How could I possibly settle it for you? I’m only doing my job as an advisor! The Lu Clan won’t trouble you as long as you’re still a representative of the national team. However, as soon as the World College Tournament ends, they will surely get their revenge! They will still follow the rules on the surface, but you will know what they can do behind the scenes when the time comes!” Feng Li said.
“Hehe, thanks for reminding me!” Mo Fan smiled again.
“…” Feng Li was left speechless.
– This kid!-
Any other student would be scared out of their wits after being scolded by him, yet this kid clearly knew he was being warned about the Lu Clan’s conspiracy behind the scenes. That being said, the Lu Clan did not dare to act too recklessly, as Mo Fan was still in the right!
