Chapter 198: Easy Victory
Audrey flexed her wrist slightly as she looked at Hobart, who was standing opposite her.
Usually, she did not notice that now that she was standing in the arena and looking at his face to face, Audrey realized that Hobart had a unique aura about him.
That aura was extremely reserved, like a lion that had yet to awaken, looking straight at his prey.
“I believe that everyone should be clear about the rules of the competition. Then, the competition shall begin.”
The teacher standing beside the stage gave the order.
Everyone immediately held their breaths.
Hobart was clearly a person who kept his word. Since he had already said it, he would naturally do as he had just said.
Dou Qi immediately surged around him. Countless amounts of energy burst out from his body, causing everyone present to suck in a breath of cold air.
After all, this force was too powerful. They simply could not resist such a powerful force. Even if they were standing dozens of meters away, they could still feel the terrifying pressure.
“Isn’t this too frightening? As expected of Hobart. He actually gave us such a strong pressure right from the start.”
“Didn’t we know long ago that Hobart has always been very strong here? Most importantly, why is Audrey standing beside us still looking indifferent despite being so nervous?”
“I don’t know. Is she scared silly? After all, no matter how you look at it, an alchemist has no chance of winning against a battler.”
“I really hope that Audrey can take out a few more bottles of high-grade potions from her pocket. That way, she can at least hold on for a while.”
Genuine laughter could be heard as Klein stood by the side and silently observed Audrey’s expression.
Just like the first time they had met, Audrey had always had that same expression. She was indifferent and seemed as inviolable as a snow lotus on a high mountain. However, she gave off a very mysterious feeling.
It was because of this that Klein had some interest in this person in front of him. Naturally, he was a little worried about the arena they were in.
Hobart’s strength was without a doubt. As long as one was good at playing with them, everyone knew that Hobart was really very strong. It could be said that he was the most talented in cultivating Dou Qi among the few of them.
He had originally thought that the two of them would fight for a period of time. He did not expect that they would actually meet at the very beginning.
Just what kind of luck was this?
Klein gently pursed his lips. If it was not because this matter was too important, he would even have other thoughts.
For example, to persuade Hobart to be gentler with this beautiful girl in front of him.
Klein felt that this idea of his was a little laughable. Hence, he laughed softly and continued to seriously watch the match on the stage.
Hobart had clearly prepared his own Dou technique. He did not give Audrey any time to catch her breath.
It seemed like he was planning to strike a fatal blow. He had used a level two Dou technique right from the start. Looking at the longsword that was mixed with an earthen yellow light heading towards her, Audrey had already heard the exclamations of the surrounding crowd.
After which, everyone was stunned to find that Audrey did not have any intention of dodging.
Everyone thought that Audrey had already given up on struggling. Otherwise, she would not have been able to react at all. However, they did not expect that the moment the longsword was about to pierce through her chest, Audrey had already disappeared from her original spot.
The scene was in an uproar.
Why did not they feel anything? She had already disappeared in front of their eyes.
Even if she had a Dou technique, it was impossible for her to be in such a state, right? Moreover, she looked at Hobart on the stage, who had a look of not being able to react at all. She forcefully withdrew her longsword and somewhat managed to stabilize her body.
“It can’t be, right? Why did she suddenly disappear? Didn’t you feel any aura?”
“No, why didn’t I feel any aura at all? Even if she used a Dou technique, it’s impossible for her to not be able to emit any aura, right?”
“I think so too. Could it be that she drank the medicine before the competition started?”
Everyone began to guess. After all, they were shocked by the scene in front of them. No matter what, they had to give themselves a reasonable explanation.
At this moment, a figure quietly appeared on the stage.
It was unknown when Audrey had appeared behind Hobart.
At that moment, Hobart immediately reacted. He flicked his wrist gently and thrust his longsword behind him. Unfortunately, it missed and the ghost-like figure disappeared once again.
What kind of fighting technique was this? Hobart was a little suspicious as he stood on the stage and carefully sensed the aura coming from his surroundings.
Everyone held their breaths as they waited for the next result.
At this moment, the azure-colored figure once again appeared in front of everyone’s eyes.
However, this time, Hobart did not dare to make another move.
This was because a small and exquisite dagger had already arrived in front of his neck.
“I can confirm that you are indeed very strong, but… your perception is a little weak.” Audrey smiled. “How is it? Do you want to continue?”
Hobart could already feel the pain. As long as he made a slight movement, that hard dagger would not hesitate to cut through his skin.
He was silent for a moment. Although he was unwilling, things had already developed to this extent. No matter how much he struggled, it might not be of any use.
A crisp sound rang out. The long sword in Hobart’s hand fell to the ground.
