Painting Of The Nine Immortals Chapter 674The giant Sun was shedding down an infinite amount of light.
On top of the field, Ling Xian was breaking arrays with lifts of arms as he strolled through room after room. Every time he flapped around his sleeve, an array was lifted. Every time he took a step, he was in the next room.
His casual and at ease behavior was as if he wasn't here participating in a contest, but was taking a stroll in his backyard.
This made everyone at the scene a little startled. Only after a while did people began to scream.
"Who is this person? How is he breaking arrays in such a fast speed?"
"Yeah, I've never even seen that man. But since the competition started, three hours have passed and how come I never noticed there was such an insane person?"
"None of this makes any sense. For someone with such a speed, why is he only at the 100th room?"
"There is only one explanation. That person had just entered the rooms so none of us noticed."
Everyone chimed in to discuss. During this time, the young man had broken through another ten rooms.
Ling Xian's speed was far too shocking. On average, he was lifting one array per second. How dominating was this?
Logically speaking, someone so capable would've caught everyone's attention a while ago. Yet none of these people saw him. This naturally made everyone curious.
The other participants in the room were also in shock and in confusion.
Because since he started, Ling Xian had surpassed many participants. Every time he came to a new room with someone in it, that person would be too startled to move. After he left after a flap of his sleeve, that person would be in extreme shock.
What could they do? He was far too insane.
He broke an array with the lift of his arm after he walked into each room and he never rested for more than three seconds. At least until now, there was no room that could contain him for more than three seconds.
This was just unbelievable!
Therefore, every time someone saw Ling Xian's silhouette, they would be dumbfounded by his behavior.
Fang Yuan was one of them.
He was inside room 199 and was currently third out of everyone.
He was satisfied with this result. Because he already knew that there was no way he would be able to beat Ta Ba Feng. This was why his goal was to try to be in the top three and aim for second.
Now that he was ranked third, of course, he was very happy about it. However now, he was facing a pickle.
Because the array in the room he was in was far too complicated. It had already trapped him for more than 30 minutes and no matter how hard he pondered, he couldn't find a solution.
"Damn this array. The competition is designed for new pupils but why is this array so difficult?" Fang Yuan was cursing and cursing at the designer of this array.
That was true. Compared to the usual, the arrays at this year's competition had increased in difficulty. This was why after three hours had passed, the majority of the people remained between the first 100 and 200 rooms.
Even the array master, Ta Ba Feng, was only at his 400th room.
"Dammit, I don't have the slightest idea. Who was this goddamned genius that set this up?" Fang Yuan continued to seek a solution as he cursed more at the designer of this array.
As he cursed on and on, his expression suddenly changed as he shifted his gaze to the person behind him.
He saw a 17 to 18 years old young man walking through the wall and softly landing on the ground.
"Very sensitive senses you have."
Looking at the frowning man, Ling Xian grinned and asked, "What number is this room?"
Fang Yuan froze but quickly grinned, "Have you gone confused? You don't even check the room number?"
"I did. But I forgot." Ling Xian grinned as well.
Because his speed of lifting arrays was far too fast at one per second, he began to forget just how many rooms he had passed.
"You have a very bad memory."
Fang Yuan glared at him and pouted, "This is room 199."
"I'm only at 200?" Ling Xian frowned, not happy with this number.
Fang Yuan froze again and laughed, "Young man, do you know what you are saying? It's not easy to reach the 200th room. Did you think you were as insane as Ta Ba Feng or something?"
"I am not Ta Ba Feng, but, I am better than him." Ling Xian revealed a smile. His voice was soft and slow, but it was full of confidence.
This once again startled Fang Yuan. Very quickly, however, he smiled in disdain, "Fella, if you want to talk big, you still need a limit. Do you know who Ta Ba Feng is? He is a Heaven's Favorite who's reached the master realm. At the very least, he's passed 400 rooms."
Pausing, he continued, "Though we are both participants and we are competitors, I can't help but respect him. Who do you think you are? You just reached room 200 and you dare to say you are better than him so shamelessly?"
Hearing this person's continuous words, Ling Xian shook his head and laughed, thinking that if you knew how long it took me to get room 200, you wouldn't be talking like this.
"Whatever. I am too lazy to talk to you."
Ling Xian chuckled, "But, as a thank you for answering my question. Let me help you solve this array."
Then, he softly stepped forward and faced the wall. However, just as he was about to lift his arm to lift it, Fang Yuan began another round of mocking.
"Stop it now. It's as if you could break the array just like that."
Fang Yuan continued to pout and challenge, "You know, I have been here for 30 minutes and I haven't been able to find a solution. What makes you think you can just lift it."
"You are giving me your face to slap." Ling Xian smiled and shook his head.
"Slapping my face?"
Fang Yuan laughed out loud, "Haha, this is funny. If you want to slap me in the face, you have to be somewhat capable."
He then looked at Ling Xian in a challenging manner, "Young man, I sure want to see how you plan on slapping me in the face."
"You will find out soon enough."
Ling Xian smiled while shaking his head. He then rolled up his sleeve and unleashed a wash of Qi. Immediately, the array was lifted and a hole appeared in the wall.
Then, he stepped forward. The wall closed behind him, leaving behind only a taunting statement that echoed throughout the room.
"To punish you for laughing at me, I have repaired the array in this room. Take your time trying to solve it."
At this, Fang Yuan became completely unmoving and his taunting grin froze on his face.
He lifted it?
He really lifted it with a flap of the sleeve?
Fang Yuan's eyes widened as he stared at the wall before him.
Only after a long while, did he recollect himself. Then, the room began to echo with his angry voice.
"What the hell! Why did you have to be so insane!?"
Fang Yuan cursed loudly. When he thought of what Ling Xian said before he left, he became even more furious.
The array had been lifted yet Ling Xian repaired it. This meant he had to break down the array himself from the start. Why would he be furious?
If I knew how insane you were, I wouldn't have laughed at you!
Fang Yuan cried tearlessly. As he remembered how difficult the array before him was and how he could've easily left a moment ago, his heart began to bleed.
