All of the spectators were stunned.
In this day and age, someone was actually requesting to be barred from the competition
Xiao Qixius expression darkened.
He had thought that it was a grave matter.
What contestant didnt consume a few pills before the start of the competition to boost their abilities There werent even rules that prohibited a competitor from using pills to recover their spiritual strength.
“Hurry up and get out of the arena!”
Xiao Qixiu was furious.
He nearly drew his sword and thrust it at Xu Xiaoshou.
There was a bitter expression on Xu Xiaoshous face.
He said, “If not for the fact that I really took too many drugs, I wouldnt have to come to look for you.
I really need help!”
He looked behind him.
There was a bunch of angels in white robes sitting there.
Xiao Qixiu frowned.
This young man really was anxious.
Also, his stark-red body…
What was going on here
He knew that Xu Xiaoshou had an Innate-stage physical body, so what kind of item was this that it was capable of making him experience such adverse side effects
“Get over here!” Xiao Qixiu pressed his hand onto Xu Xiaoshous chest, and a terrifying scorching energy instantly assaulted him.
He smelled the scent of flesh burning and immediately pulled his hand away.
He didnt have an Innate-stage physical body.
The spectators were dumbfounded.
“Oh f***, just what kind of drugs did Xu Xiaoshou take To think that it managed to injure Elder Xiao.”
“This is insane.
Did he really take drugs And he dared to come here to turn himself in”
“If it was really as he said, I would think that he had no other choice.
Haha, this is too funny!”
Even Xiao Qixiu was startled.
He quickly enveloped his palm with his spiritual source to eliminate the scorching aura.
However, his palm had already been burned.
He had disregarded Xu Xiaoshous symptoms and touched him without protecting himself with his spiritual source first.
He ended up paying the price for that with a burned hand.
“The Infernal Fire Seed”
“Elder Sang must have gone mad,” he murmured to himself.
“Didnt the Infernal Fire Seed once cripple a person with an Innate-stage physical body”
Xu Xiaoshou nearly peed his pants when he heard this.
He fearfully looked at Xiao Qixiu, his eyes full of questions.
Xiao Qixiu awkwardly stroked his hand as he realized that Xu Xiaoshou had overheard him muttering to himself.
“That item is great,” he quickly added.
“Its your good fortune.
Theres nothing wrong, theres nothing wrong…”
Xu Xiaoshou was about to explode.
“What do you mean that theres nothing wrong” he thought to himself.
“Didnt you just say that it once crippled a person with an Innate-stage physical body”
“I heard everything!” he said slowly.
“You heard wrong!”
“Sigh!” Xiao Qixiu sighed.
He patted Xu Xiaoshous shoulder and said, “Go back and rest.
Do your best.
Fight through the pain!”
Passive Points 1.”
Xu Xiaoshou was gobsmacked.
“That wasnt the answer I was looking for! I want medical attention!” he thought.
“I dont want to be burned and crippled!”
Xiao Qixiu no longer cared about Xu Xiaoshou.
He got him to squat in the corner and announced the start of the competition, then went at his own pace and started drawing the pairings.
Everyone in the spectator seats grew interested.
What was going on
Xu Xiaoshou had admitted to taking drugs and requested to be barred from the competition, yet the judge had disregarded his claims and wasnt even going to give Xu Xiaoshou medical attention
“Hahaha, this is too funny.
What happened here today is a lesson that the evils we bring on ourselves are the hardest to bear!”
“Xu Xiaoshou is so pitiful.
He took drugs and ended up in this state.
“Please give him some medical attention.
Hes about to turn into braised meat… Haha, I cant hold it in any longer!”
Xu Xiaoshous upper body was bare, and he was becoming terrifyingly redder and redder, and there was steam rising from his body.
He dejectedly returned to his waiting area.
“How could he be so merciless He didnt even get a medical worker to look at me…”
Xu Xiaoshou secretly mulled over the situation.
He had gained something by coming here.
At the very least, he had obtained some critical pieces of information.
The Infernal Fire Seed had once crippled a person with an Innate-stage physical body!
He seemed to have heard that name before…
Judging from the information that Xiao Qixiu had accidentally revealed, Xiao Qixiu knew about the item he had consumed… the Infernal Fire Seed
Also, Xiao Qixiu might know the detestable old man.
This was the reason why Xu Xiaoshou didnt continue with his antics.
“They are partners in crime…”
Xu Xiaoshou sat down cross-legged and continued expelling the scorching aura from his body a little at a time.
This was all he could do for the time being.
However, this terrifying scorching energy gradually seeped into his energy reserve as he refined it.
“Wont it eventually burn my energy reserve”
Xu Xiaoshou felt indignant.
He had unknowingly got done in by the detestable old man.
He suddenly remembered what Xiao Qixiu had said about this being his good fortune.
Perhaps that detestable old man had given him the Infernal Fire Seed to get him to successfully refine it
Now that it had come to this, he was no longer hung up on how this item had once crippled a person with an Innate-stage physical body.
No one was going to help him, so he had to depend on himself.
The screen above the arena flickered.
Names were chosen, and two people walked into the arena.
The spectators were joyfully shouting.
The atmosphere inside the arena was charged with energy.
Xu Xiaoshou, on the other hand, was trying his best to refine the seed.
He took out the Red Gold Pill and took a whiff of it from time to time, using the high to neutralize the pain and heal his injured body.
Passive Points 1.”
Passive Points 1.”
The notification panel in his mind refreshed every second.
Xu Xiaoshou was constantly being burned.
On an average day, the number of passive points he was gaining wouldve made him happy, but now…
Hehe, it had once crippled a person with an Innate-stage physical body.
That sentence was like a nightmare, continuously coming back to haunt him.
“Sigh, do I still have to participate in the competition Whats going on
Even though he was trying his best to hang in there, his condition was terrible.
The meridians in his body were being severed one after the other, then restored time after time by the Red Gold Pill.
The pain was unimaginable.
“Oh, maybe I can dispel this scorching energy through battle”
Sometime later, Xu Xiaoshou, who was sitting cross-legged on the ground, had a stroke of inspiration and abruptly stood up.
That idea might work!
He looked at the arena.
Many pairs had already been drawn, however, his name hadnt been picked yet.
The most eye-catching person in the arena right now was a man in white robes.
His expression was cold, and he was wielding an Ice Stream Sword.
His attacks turned his opponents into ice sculptures as he sliced his way to victory.
“Zhao Qingteng, victorious!”
Xu Xiaoshous eyes glimmered.
He really wanted the other party to slice him with his sword.
Hed feel so comfortable he might explode!
However, Zhao Qingteng…
He was an Innate-stage fighter!
This made him a little nervous.
The screen flickered again.
Two names appeared in bold on the screen.
As soon as the announcers words fell, the spectators erupted with excitement.
This was the second time this had happened.
The first time was when the Innate-stage fighter Zhao Qingteng had entered the arena.
“Hes here, hes here, Xu Xiaoshou!”
“Open your eyes wide, Sandbag Xu is coming!”
“Oh Why is he called Sandbag Xu”
“You dont know Let me tell you, that Xu Xiaoshou…”
Xu Xiaoshou immediately flew into the arena from the waiting area and once again ran to Xiao Qixiu.
“Give me treatment if I defeat this person!” he pleaded.
Xiao Qixius expression turned dark.
What kind of candidate was this
“Im a judge,” he thought.
“Who do you take me for You ran over here to talk to me like this!”
One of the people from the panel of judges behind Xiao Qixiu was elated.
“Look at Boss Xiao.
Xu Xiaoshous only just come up to him, and hes already starting to get frustrated!”
He was quite happy and observed Xu Xiaoshou with curiosity.
“Go back and stand in your corner!” Xiao Qixiu scolded.
Xu Xiaoshou pointed to his neck.
It was billowing smoke.
There was an unpleasant look on Xiao Qixius face as he looked at Xu Xiaoshou.
However, he was the judge, so it wasnt like he could do anything to him.
“Look, this area is already burned red.
Im a candidate.
I have the right to receive treatment!”
“Hehe, you did this to yourself before the competition, so it has nothing to do with me!”
Xiao Qixiu did want to treat Xu Xiaoshou, but even the best medical worker present, much less himself, wouldnt be able to help him, so all he could do was get Xu Xiaoshou to fight through the pain.
Xu Xiaoshous eyes glimmered when he heard this, and he said, “Thats right.
Since I did this before the competition, it has nothing to do with you, but if I get injured during the competition, you have to treat me!”
“Yes, thats right!” He nodded hard, then muttered loudly to himself, “Furthermore, according to the rules, you have to restore me to tip-top form!”
Xiao Qixiu looked really angry now.
“Where are you, Zhang Fei Hurry and come into the arena!”
