Vol.1 – Chapter 91 – Xu Taiping fought against Gong Sun, and Taiping won against Gong Sun

Xu Taiping looked over and found that the list of opponents had already been posted.

“When the time comes, please give me a lot of guidance, Senior Brother Gongsun.”

Xu Taiping calmly arched his hand towards Gongsun Sheng.

He thought of this as his opponent coming to greet him in advance.


Gongsun Sheng smiled and then looked at Xu Taiping with a sneer, saying, “You are worthy?”

At the words, Xu Taiping frowned.

He didn’t quite understand why Gongsun Sheng was so hostile towards him.

“Do you know Lu Chen from the Fifth Peak?”

Gongsun Sheng asked.

Hearing the name “Lu Chen,” Xu Taiping’s brow furrowed.

“I’ve heard of him, but I don’t know him,” he replied.

“To tell you the truth, my former junior brother didn’t like you very much, so after the list of opponents came out, he specifically asked me to come and tell you that he plans to leave you half crippled in the match later.”

Gongsun Sheng looked at Xu Taiping with a sly smile.

Hearing that Lu Chen had a grudge against him, Xu Taiping immediately thought of Liu Qingmei and her sister, Liu Zijin. But upon careful consideration, Lu Chen should not have known that he was the one in the Red Maple Forest that day.

Could it be that just because I contradicted him a few times that morning, he has been holding a grudge until now?

Xu Taiping speculated in his mind.

If that’s the case, then Lu Chen’s narrow-mindedness is truly unprecedented.

“Are you suggesting that I should voluntarily withdraw from the match now?”

Xu Taiping looked up at Gongsun Sheng.

“If you’re smart, that would be best,” Gongsun Sheng sneered.

He was at the end of his rope. His provocation was fake, but his threat was real.

Gongsun Sheng had watched both of Xu Taiping’s matches at the Dragon Gate Meeting. Although he considered himself unafraid, the opponent’s tactics greatly depleted the opponent’s true energy. He didn’t want to affect the next match because of Xu Taiping, so he thought to come and threaten him in advance.

Even if the threat didn’t work, it would at least disturb his state of mind.

“We’ll meet on the stage.”

Xu Taiping answered very decisively, then turned and walked towards the edge of the stage.

This surprised Gongsun Sheng a little.

“Kid, don’t toast and not eat the punishment…”


Gongsun Sheng had just wanted to step forward to stop Xu Taiping, but suddenly several bursts of air exploded above his head, followed by several figures landing in front of Xu Taiping in succession.

“Little Taiping!”

In the midst of the figures, a girl in a red dress quickly stepped forward towards Xu Taiping.

Xu Taiping was first stunned, then his eyes lit up, pleasantly surprised, “Sister Linglong!”


“Long time no see, Little Taiping.”

At this time, Qingxiao and Zi Yan also walked up to Xu Taiping.

“Big Brother Qingxiao, Sister Zi Yan!”

Xu Taiping greeted the two of them happily.

He had thought that Linglong and the others had forgotten about him, but today they actually came to greet him in person.

“Taiping, don’t lose to these useless people.”

At this time, Lin Buyu also walked up to Xu Taiping and, as she spoke, turned to look at Gongsun Sheng.

“What do you mean?”

Gongsun Sheng was about to get angry, but Dugu Qingxiao suddenly appeared in front of him.

“Gongsun Sheng, have you fallen so low that you have to rely on threatening an outer disciple to win?”

Qingxiao stared coldly at Gongsun Sheng as he spoke.

As he said this, his heavy pressure was like a fierce punch, heavily hitting Gongsun Sheng’s chest.


Gongsun Sheng snorted and then gave Xu Taiping a fierce look, saying, “We’ll meet on the stage!”

With that, he turned and left without looking back.

“Brother Qingxiao, you shouldn’t have provoked Gongsun Sheng at this time. It’s not good for Taiping.”

Zi Yan said with some concern.

Xu Taiping didn’t expect that Sister Zi Yan and the others would not only come to greet him in person, but also be concerned about his match.

This long-lost feeling of being cared for by others made him feel inexplicably warm.

“Sister Zi Yan, you don’t need to worry,” he smiled and shook his head at Zi Yan, then said, “I won’t lose to that Gongsun Sheng.”

“The match is about to begin, please leave, unrelated people.”

At this moment, the voice of the invigilator resounded through a sound transmission talisman once again in the sky above the Sword Control Platform.

“Little Taiping, remember, don’t try too hard in the match later. Even if you can’t win at the Seventh Peak Meeting, we will find a way to bring you to the Seventh Peak this time.”

Seeing the invigilator coming towards them, Zhao Linglong quickly reminded Xu Taiping with a rapid speech.

And this sentence was the main purpose for her to come and see Xu Taiping.

Xu Taiping was stunned at the words.

In fact, during this time, people from various peaks had come to him through the West Wind Pavilion to show their goodwill, but no matter what conditions they offered, they couldn’t compare to the promise Zhao Linglong made to him today.


To the surprise of Zhao Linglong and the others, Xu Taiping suddenly smiled and shook his head at them.


Hearing this, Zhao Linglong and Qingxiao were all stunned.

“I will definitely fulfill the promise I made to Sister Linglong and the others, win the selection at the Seventh Peak, and become an official disciple of the Seventh Peak.”

Xu Taiping looked at Zhao Linglong with a serious expression.

At the words, Zhao Linglong and the others stood still in place, not knowing what to say for a moment.

“You guys, leave quickly. The match is about to begin!”

At this time, an invigilator came up behind them and sternly reprimanded them.

“I’ll be waiting for you, little junior brother.”

Qingxiao smiled and patted Xu Taiping on the shoulder, then took Zhao Linglong and left with his sword.”Back then, I casually told him to cultivate diligently and to participate in the Seventh Peak selection after three years. I never expected he would actually remember it until now.”

On the flying sword, Zhao Linglong looked back at the young man behind her and murmured with a sense of emotion.

“With such determination, even if he doesn’t become a cultivator, he will surely achieve something significant in the future.”

Zi Yan also commented on Xu Taiping with a serious face at this time.

Previously, she hadn’t thought highly of Xu Taiping, considering he was merely a mortal with ordinary bones. Her attention to him was mostly due to Dugu Qingxiao and Zhao Linglong, but now, Xu Taiping’s resolute gaze made her understand why, after three years, Qingxiao and Linglong still couldn’t forget this young man.

“The first match, Xu Taiping versus Gongsun Sheng!”

Moments later, Xu Taiping and Gongsun Sheng ascended the platform one after the other, and the examiner on the platform used a voice transmission talisman to announce their names once again.

“Don’t think that just because you have Dugu Qingxiao as your backer, I wouldn’t dare to kill you. You’ll regret not withdrawing from the competition earlier.”

On the platform, Gongsun Sheng clenched his fists, warming up his muscles while giving Xu Taiping a cold stare.

His threat had backfired, resulting in humiliation, which made him extremely displeased.
