 Shiyu stared at the row of bruised faces for a moment.  Suddenly, she heard a muffled yelp and turned just in time to see Dong-Fang Zhen skidding across the floor towards them.  “This-”  Dong-Fang Zhen suddenly leapt back to his feet.  There was a boot print on his face, “Damn you! What kind of evil bitch attack someone’s face!?”
Lin Fan got off his chair and moved forward to the platform. Catching sight of his fellow Champion, Dong-Fang Zhen cried, “Brother, you must avenge us!”
Lin Fan turned, studied the bruised and broken faces of his companions and said, “I shall do my best,” and leapt onto the stage.
Shiyu took out some medicine and began handing them out to her friends, “Why is that person fighting again?”
Normally, in a 1 vs 1 fight, both sides would rotate their people for the battles.
“That girl is a one-man team!” someone said. “She had fought all of us except Lin Fan and Qing Chen. If those two lost their fight, we’ll really lose face.”
“To think that we won against the Fire Wolves only to lose against a weak woman… I feel terrible…” 
Shiyu vaguely listened to their complaints as her eyes were drawn irresistibly towards the stage where a tall girl with a good looking face was staring arrogantly down at them.
There was a flash of something familiar in that girl’s arrogant stare.
Well, seeing how she had already reached Core Condensation 9 at such a young age, it was not surprising for a girl to be so filled with pride.
Neither Lin Fan nor the girl were chatty people, after the initial salute, they began to fight.
Both were sword users and were the type to fight head-on. Lin Fan’s swordsmanship was fiercer with more powerful strikes while the girl’s technique was more refined. Nevertheless, the two collided with uncompromising strength, causing even Shiyu to feel excited about the fight.
On the stage, the two traded blows. At first, the girl had the upper hand with her more refined technique and Lin Fan’s powerful blows were parried away. However, a dozen moves later, Lin Fan appeared to have familiarised himself with her moves and soon began to match and later overpower her.
Although the girl was higher than Lin Fan in terms of Cultivation, she had already fought a few others before this. Therefore, the difference was not large. Moreover, anyone familiar with Lin Fan would know that he could explosively improve when facing a more powerful opponent.
People who had fought with Lin Fan would know. The longer the fight, the lower their chances of winning.

Three servants watched the fight closely from the stands. One of them shook their head and sighed. “That youth is still young, but his battle experience is already very high. Third Miss would find it a little difficult to win if their Cultivation realm is the same.”
“Rather than a little, it should be very difficult. Third Miss has already been weakened from the earlier fights. Moreover, that youth seemed to be getting stronger the more he fights… Third Miss is about to lose!” a second servant shouted.
At his cry, all three stared as the two fighters leapt to the air. Their sword clashed and Tan-Tai Chu was thrown to the ground. Before she could do more than push herself up by the elbows, Lin Fan’s sword tip was pointing at her chest.
“You’ve lost,” Lin Fan said as he wiped away the blood trickling down one cheek.
Tan-Tai Chu laid there, half reclining as she stared up at the injured teenager before her with disbelieving eyes.
“How could I lose!”
Lin Fan’s sword stabbed forward another inch. Without the slightest pity, he said, “If you don’t admit defeat, I’ll have to send you down.”
“Hah!” Tan-Tai Chu laughed contemptuously. “Can you?” Suddenly, the energies around her body soared. The suppression on her body broke and her Cultivation rapidly went up.
Who could have expected this change? The Dean’s pupils shrank and a trace of anger flashed across his face, “Divine Transformation realm!”
Immediately, he and Elder Feng rushed towards the stage. However, before they could reach the platform, someone rushed in front of them.
“These two sirs, it’s best not to intervene the competition on the stage,” the visitor smiled amiably, but he would not allow them to pass.
Shiyu and the rest also tried to rush over to the stage. However, as soon as they stood up, a thick wall of ice suddenly surrounding the area, blocking everyone in. Shiyu, who possessed the Ocean Heart Flame, flashed past the wall of ice. The old man who performed the Ice Seal was shocked. When he caught sight of Shiyu’s face, he was dumbfounded.
This… they look the same!
Nevertheless, he still managed to keep blocking Shiyu from approaching the stage. Uncertain who she was, he did his best not to hurt her even as he blocked her.
While all this was happening, Lin Fan had already reacted. When he realised that his opponent was a Divine Transformation powerhouse, he quickly backed away. However, when the girl flashed forward with her sword, he could not help but tremble with excitement as he rushed to meet her attack. 
The girl swing her sword, Lin Fan’s sword went forward.
Their swords collided in mid-air. The collision of Spiritual energy against Spiritual energy distorted the air and exploded in an ever-widening sphere. The stage below them was affected first, crumbling into dust and scattering to all directions.
When the dust gradually disappeared… everyone saw that the stage had disappeared. What was left was a large pit. Not only that, even the walls of the stadium had suffered from hairline cracks spreading like spider webs.
Everyone fell silent. Just then, they heard a cough from the middle of the pit and a figure staggered up right from within the pit.
The person was in tatters, but they could still tell from the black sword that it was Lin Fan.
“I win,” he said, looking down at his opponent.
Tan-Tai Chu’s eyes widened. She struggled but could not find the strength to push herself upright. When she struggled too hard, blood bubbled from her mouth.
They were  at least three levels away in strength. A Core Condensation 8 should be nothing against a Divine Transformation master! Moreover, how could he resist her final move?
Lin Fan grinned, his teeth were very white. “You forget. This is the Ninth Realm.”
Outside, Shiyu was shocked when she saw Lin Fan stood up. Even though she understood that ML and FL could often overpower stronger opponents so long as the power disparity was not too much…
It was one thing to know it and quite another to see it, ah!
Now that the battle was over, the old man who had been blocking her disappeared to check on the girl, allowing Shiyu and the rest to break free from the seal and rushed over to Lin Fan.
Lin Fan’s body trembled and everyone hurried over to support him. Some supported his body while others acted as escorts as they walked out of the stadium.
On the way out, Shiyu could not help but cast one last look at the girl surrounded by the two old men.
The girl’s gaze was on Lin Fan. Her expression was complicated. There was anger and incredulity, and a touch of something else.
Shiyu looked away. However, one thought pinged within her mind… According to a novel’s common sense, the average mob sister would obsess over the ML and eventually fall in love with him…
Has Lin Fan’s peach blossom arc arrived?

 Adjusted Details for Logistic Purpose: The chapter opened with Dong-Fang Zhen’s POV for 2 paragraphs, ending with ‘Bro! You must avenge me!’ which was probably mostly for comedic purposes. Switched them all to Shiyu’s POV since the rest of the paragraphs after that are under Shiyu’s POV until it switched over to the Servants’ POV  Added Detail for Comedic Purpose: Since the author wants the opening sentences to be funny…  ¯\_༼ ಥ ‿ ಥ ༽_/¯ Who said that? You want to die?  Adjusted Details for Corrective Purpose: Original text was ‘they were only one step away’. Lin Fan was Core Condensation 8, so the difference has to be at least 2 or 3 ‘steps’ away, depending on how you count it.
