Chapter 288 Senior John Doe’s Disciple
Today’s consultation meeting was very different from the past.
Although in the last two months, every time people would be waiting for the mysterious man. But this time, there were more people waiting. The sound of discussing was loud.
The whole manor was filled with different people.
Elder Yi had expected that this would happen, so he prepared dozens of chairs in advance and even put some tables and wooden chairs on the aisles to the garden. But it was not enough, so many people stood around in huddles.
Elder Yi could do nothing about it.
After all, the manor was already filled to capacity.
“It’s 7:30 pm. Why doesn’t he come?”
“Yeah, when does this thing start?”
“It’s usually 7:00 until 10:00 at night, but lately it’s been uncertain when to start because we have to wait for the mysterious man.”
“What a big shot! Should we all wait for him?”
“Maybe he’s not coming.”
“Maybe John Doe knew that things were getting out of hand and that martial arts practitioners were coming from all over the country, so he was frightened and decided to stay at home.”
When they were waiting, many outsiders started to roast John Doe.
Of course, they were just whispering and didn’t dare to be blatant.
Another ten minutes had passed.
“Who is the owner here?”
Suddenly, an impatient voice was heard.
The crowd followed the voice and found it was a young man wearing a white robe.
He rose from a round table with a sullen look on his face and shouted, “Are you going to mess with so many practitioners here?”
When that came out, Elder Yi, sitting beside the ring, stood up quickly.
“Sir,” Looking at the young man, Elder Yi narrowed his eyes slightly. When he saw that the young man was actually a grade-two Martial Superior, he immediately said politely, “What can I do for you?”
“Hmm.” Seeing that the owner of the manor was a grade-two Martial Superior, the young man snorted coldly and said, “Did you promise that the mysterious man will show up at this meeting?”
“Yes, I did.” Elder Yi nodded.
“Where is he?” The young man sneered at him. “Maybe it was the people in Jiangjing who made up this mysterious man. When John Doe sees so many warriors coming from all over the country, he is afraid to come out.”
Hearing that, Elder Yi’s face darkened.
It was clear that he was picking on him. The misunderstanding would be greater if he let it go. But if he argued with him, he couldn’t prove the existence of John Doe, unless he was here himself.
What a dilemma!
“How dare you, a nobody, speak like that?” Suddenly a disdainful laugh came from the crowd.
When he heard that, the young man’s face changed and he became furious.
He was a grade-two Martial Superior. There were not more than ten people who were more powerful than him.
How dare anyone scold him?
All the people present turned their heads and looked for the direction of the voice.
The man who spoke just now was He Gaoming.
The locals in Jiangjing city were surprised.
“Why is he standing up?”
“He is one of those who got the guidance from John Doe and broke through to the Martial Superior level.”
“He could not have broken through or improved so quickly if it had not been for John Doe, so he should stand up for John Doe.”
Compared with the native people of Jiangjing, other people acted differently. Some people were confused and some of them smiled waiting to see the drama. The powerful warriors sneered when they looked at He Gaoming.
They could clearly see that He Gaoming was a grade-one Martial Superior, but that young man was grade-two.
The young man glared sullenly at him.
“You should be the one to answer that question.”
He Gaoming sneered and said, “You think I can just let you slander my master?”
People froze when they heard that.
“Is he John Doe’s disciple?”
“I didn’t know he had a disciple.”
“It’s strange that the disciple had come, but his master didn’t.”
Outsiders couldn’t help asking.
The locals, however, were dumbfounded.
“When did you learn from him?”
“Since when did John Doe take you as his disciple?”
“Ha-ha, we appreciate that you want to stand up for John Doe, but you can’t just impersonate his disciple.”
“You’ve got to be kidding me. When did John Doe become your master?”
People were asking questions constantly.
Even Elder Yi was looking at He Gaoming with a surprised face.
“He had taught me before, so I’m his disciple.”
He Gaoming glanced around. “Once a teacher, always a teacher. Even though my master only taught me for a few minutes, it was those few minutes that made me his disciple!”
Everyone was speechless.
“If you say so, I’m his disciple too.”
“Me too. Me Too.”
“He had taught all of us that day, so that meant we’re all his disciples?”
“How could a grade-one Martial Superior dare to brag here?”
The young man sneered and yelled at He Gaoming, “Go out of here!”
Hearing that, He Gaoming shook his head calmly and said, “The barking of the dog is really annoying.”
“Who are you calling a dog?” The young man’s face was dark with rage.
“Look at you, why did you admit it so quickly?” He Gaoming grinned.
He looked rather annoyed. All the people present couldn’t help laughing at him.
As a result, the young man thought that everyone was laughing at him, and suddenly became angrier.
“Swish!” He didn’t say anything and just rushed to the ring.
Then he stared at He Gaoming with a cold face. “You’re the disciple of the man who does not dare to show up, right? Then come to the stage, let’s see what you got. Is your strength as weak as your attitude?”
All the people present were stunned.
They all knew that He Gaoming just broke through to grade one, but the young man was grade two. That was a huge difference.
He Gaoming would be digging his own grave if he came up to the ring.
Of course, there were some people in the crowd who would love to see some conflicts, so they were eager to see He Gaoming fight with the young man.
He Gaoming burst into laughter before these people could make a sound.
“Why not?” He Gaoming rolled his eyes at the young man and then strode into the ring with a fearless look on his face.
“Hmm.” The young man sneered.
He was already in a rage, but because this was Elder Yi’s place and he was in Jiangjing, he didn’t want to recklessly make a move, so he took the opportunity to rush into the ring.
What he didn’t expect was that He Gaoming really took the bait.
He would definitely make He Gaoming regret making this decision when he came to the ring.
How could he possibly let a grade-one Martial Superior insult him like that? He could never get over it if he didn’t show his strength to He Gaoming.
“You have guts, though.”
When He Gaoming came on the ring, the young man snorted.
“If you want to fight, then fight. This is a ring, not a street. If you want to curse, go to the street.” He Gaoming said.
He then moved your hands, showing the Dragon-Tiger Shape.
He Gaoming’s martial arts methods were Xingyi Fists, but it was a pity that there were few complete Xingyi Fists nowadays. What he had learned was only the dragon and tiger shapes.
But that was enough for him.
“Go to hell!” He Gaoming’s words irritated the young man again. He immediately gathered all his internal forces and burst out a powerful strength, striking towards He Gaoming.
“Maybe you’re the one to end up in hell.”
He Gaoming shouted and moved quickly, confronting the young man’s strike.
The next moment, “Bang!” a loud sound of explosion spread.
People could see that a wave of force appeared when their fists met in the air.
It was like two opposing circles.
Martial Superiors knew that this was the collision between internal forces.
As a grade-two Martial Superior, he should have had all the advantages, especially when He Gaoming just reached grade one.
However, the current situation clearly showed that the internal Qi of two people were even closer to balance!
How could it be?
The powerful warriors were shocked.
The other onlookers were also surprised to see that He Gaoming had taken a blow from the opponent and he didn’t seem to be hurt at all.
He Gaoming actually block the young man’s attack?
This was incredible.
On the ring, “Hmm?” The youth was intimidated.
“Is that all you got?” He Gaoming sneered and then waved his hand, fiercely striking the young man.
“You’re so dead!” The young man yelled.
Being looked down upon by a person who was inferior to him, the young man was irate.
“Ah!” He roared.
A wave of air burst out from his body. He started to wave his fists madly and fight against He Gaoming.
“Clap, clap, clap…” There were a lot of bangs sounding.
Below the stage, the crowd was shocked.
No one expected that the grade-one Martial Superior could actually compete with a grade-two Superior.
Did he really become John Doe’s disciple?
Otherwise, how could he possibly possess the ability of the mysterious man? Obviously, he knew how to use the strength of being the weaker one.
The battle between practitioners was quick.
They could quickly finish the battle if they didn’t meet an opponent whose strength equaled theirs.
And this one was no exception.
“Bang, bang, bang…”
After a series of violent collisions, there was a huge sound of a bang.
A figure flew out of the ring.
At that moment, the whole manor was in deadly silence.
