Jiang Yingying’s match went very smoothly as well. No one could stop her with just one move. The two of them had made those people look at them with new eyes, and no one dared to look down upon them.
“Fang Zhan, how many more matches do I have next?” Samuel asked Fang Zhan after the grading.
Fang Zhan was not surprised by the result. After all, he had personally experienced the strength of Samuel. A Yellow level man was nothing to him.
If it hadn’t been for the rigid rule of Tianqi, Fang Zhan would have thought that Samuel would have been able to participate in the Xuan Level grading competition directly.
“No,” Fang Zhan said with a smile.
“No more?” Samuel was surprised. There were so many people participating in the grading competition. How could there be only one opponent for him?
Fang Zhan patted Samuel on the shoulder and said, “Just now, all your opponents forfeited. No one dares to fight with you. Of course, there will be no competition.”
Samuel touched his nose and said with a smile, “Don’t you think I am too high-profile? Will I become a thorn in some people’s side?”
“In Tianqi, you don’t need to keep a low profile, because this is a place to talk with strength. If you don’t keep a high profile, how can you let others know how powerful you are? Now you and Yingying can directly reach the Xuan Level, and you can set off immediately to participate in the earth-level grading contest,” Fang Zhan said.
Samuel put his hands on the back of his neck and said with a calm face, “I didn’t expect that the Tianqi, which is pursued by countless martial artists, is just so-so.”
Fang Zhan shook his head and reminded Samuel, “Don’t be careless. There is a big gap between the strength of the Yellow level and the Earth level. Your next opponent is not so easy to deal with. In addition to dealing with the people of the Xuan level, there is also a test for the experts of the Earth level. This is your real challenge.”
“For me, the real challenge is the devil king cave.” Samuel said. Progressing to the Earth level was just a threshold, so it was not a real challenge for him.
The reason why Samuel was so confident was that he could now feel the echo of the skull power and his own power. He could even feel that he had reached a new realm. His body was constantly absorbing the endless power of the skull, which made his strength rise very quickly.
Earlier, Samuel had been worried that his level-up competition would be thwarted. However, now that he had the strength of his skull, the level-up competition became much easier.
Fang Zhan knew that Samuel’s goal should indeed be placed in the Devil King’s Cave, because this was the expectation of Elder Yi for him. But the grading game was also not to be underestimated. This was the prerequisite for whether Samuel could go to the Devil King’s Cave.
“Don’t be too arrogant, or you will suffer a lot,” Fang Zhan reminded him.
Samuel did not expand, not because he did not care about the upcoming ranking game, but because he was now fully confident that he could do it.
The news of Samuel’s promotion soon reached He Xiaoxiao, but she still showed disdain for him. Because in He Xiaoxiao’s eyes, the Yellow Level was the lowest level. It was nothing for Samuel to win such a ranking game.
“It seems that Samuel does have some strength. There is a reason why Elder Yi can value him.” A man with thick eyebrows and big eyes, with a strong back and a stocky waist, said in a low voice. He was He Xiaoxiao’s father, He Qingfeng, the master of the three halls!
He Qingfeng’s name was very elegant and difficult to relate to him, because his physique was as strong as a black bear. Such a person should have a very fierce name.
“Dad, he just beat a yellow-leveled player. Is that good enough?” He Xiaoxiao said disdainfully.
He Qingfeng smiled faintly. In the face of his daughter, he would never show a strict attitude. Even if he knew Samuel was a person that could not be underestimated, he would not blame He Xiaoxiao for her attitude toward this matter.
“My good daughter, what kind of person is Elder Yi? Will he really let a good-for-nothing be his apprentice?” He Qingfeng said with a smile.
He Xiaoxiao had already regarded Samuel as her enemy in her heart. No matter how powerful Samuel was, she would not admit it in her heart. And now she only had one request—she wanted Samuel to die.
“Perhaps Elder Yi took his money. Isn’t Tianqi talking about it now?” He Xiaoxiao said.
He Qingfeng couldn’t help laughing. Only idiots would talk like this. Who would take such nonsense seriously?
The Tianqi did need the support of some big families in the secular world, or they would not be able to maintain it. After all, people here also needed to buy clothes, but it did not mean that the Tianqi was a place where people could buy it at the cost of money.
Moreover, as the head of the four gates, how could Elder Yi be blinded by money?
“Silly girl, do you think Dad will be bought over by money?” He Qingfeng asked.
“Of course not.” He Xiaoxiao said without thinking, “Dad is so upright. How can you be bribed by money? Besides, the three halls have never been short of money.”
“Since I’m not short of money, why would Elder Yi be short of money?” He Qingfeng said.
This sentence made He Xiaoxiao not know how to refute it. She could only act like a young lady and said, “Dad, can’t you go with my wishes? Why do you insist on going against me?”
Seeing that He Xiaoxiao seemed to be angry, He Qingfeng quickly said, “Yes, yes, yes. My good daughter is right. It must be that old guy is short of money.”
“Humph.” He Xiaoxiao raised her head coldly, which made He Qingfeng smile bitterly.
“Dad still has something to do. You can play by yourself first.” Helplessly, He Qingfeng had to find an excuse to escape.
He Xiaoxiao’s expression gradually became gloomy. Samuel won the grading contest in a very easy way, and all his opponents gave up, which showed how powerful he was.
Although He Xiaoxiao did not want to admit it, she was not stupid. Samuel was able to show such a strong deterrence, which was enough to show Samuel was not a simple person.
However, the stronger Samuel was, the more unwilling He Xiaoxiao was to accept this fact.
“No, I have to find a way to stop this good-for-nothing,” He Xiaoxiao gritted her teeth and said.
Never offend a narrow-minded woman. Otherwise, the trouble she caused was unimaginable.
Samuel did not know that his attitude towards He Xiaoxiao had caused a lot of trouble. Because in his opinion, it was just a small matter. After all, he had a wife and a child. It was reasonable for him not to care about other women.
In the new environment, Samuel found that there was a huge difference in treatment between the Yellow-level and the Xuan-level. The living environment was better, and even the food was of higher grades. This was a very obvious class system.
“Nowadays, everyone is equal. I didn’t expect that there would be such an obvious difference in the level of Tianqi,” Samuel said with a look of lament.
“Brother Samuel, equality is just a slogan. In fact, there is no equal at all,” Jiang Yingying said.
“That’s true. Those with different abilities will naturally have different positions. How can they be equal?” Samuel nodded and said.
Since Samuel and Jiang Yingying had become famous in the Yellow-level battle, many people at the Xuan-level had heard about their deeds, so the appearance of them attracted many people’s secret attention. Some of them looked at the two with new eyes, while others thought that winning the Yellow-level competition was nothing, so they turned up their noses at them.
However, Samuel never cared about these things. No matter what these people thought of him, his goal now was Devil King’s cave. This was the only way he could find out about Tianqi’s secrets and solve the greatest confusion in his heart.
