“Gong Xi Gong Xi Gong Xi Ni~~”

The Chinese New Year songs were still being performed. Meanwhile, in the waiting room, Ye Cang and the others had entered into the final battle. 

“The descended Saint Joan of Arc, the ultimate form of the 10th Yama - Dark - Ying Zheng, Mew, and the Mad King of Martial Art - Guan Yu. This is going to be hard. If one makes a move, everyone would follow suit, especially when SpyingBlade is the strongest for now. The Nine Yamas summoned the 10th Yama, True - Yama - Ying Zheng. Ying Zheng, who is in his dark form has a ghostly body of the holy king. He has an immunity skill which would reflect damage to a particular target.”

“I think Lele’s Mew is the only one that can counter-attack Yin Zheng in the dark form. If they were to fight in a one-on-one battle, their strengths are quite similar. Mew has psychokinesis while Ying Zheng has a ghostly body of the holy king. They are a nemesis to each other. The coverage attack of psychokinesis is not reflected by Ying Zheng’s skill but the ghostly body would be filled with the conquering power of Yama as it absorbs the attack. Similarly, Ying Zheng’s spiritual attack would trigger Mew’s nerve system and enhance its cells, pushing it to evolve. If Mew evolves into Mega Mew, it would be a stalemate. It’s going to be difficult for everyone. Nobody would dare make a move or a step. We shall see whether Lil’White is able to draw the card - Holy Quenching, evolving his Iris Flower War Banner into Iris Flower Spear and activating its special skills to purify the dark form. But even so, if SpyingBlade got himself the King of All Times, his Ying Zheng would turn into the real Qin Shi Huang. It would be even harder for everyone. There are three strategies for the Nine Yama deck and obviously, SpyingBlade is using the Ying Zheng strategy. I bet he has a backup plan if his dark form is being eliminated. That man is evil.” ThornyRose shook her head. 

Hey, hey, do you people still remember that we have a performance to do? We have to get up there now. Wu Na pondered and stared at the four of them who were still playing. Afraid to say anything, she sighed deeply. 

The emcee once again got up the stage after the songs were finished. “I know everyone has been waiting for this significant moment. Without further ado, let’s welcome the performance brought by the heroes of China! The Oath in the Blossom Garden - Mad Crazy Dance!”

“Damn it! It’s finally the Three Brothers’ turn! I almost fell asleep! Hey, wake up! Wake up! Everyone, wake up! The Three Brothers are gonna perform! The King of the Holy Elephant! Goddess Zuo Yiyi and the others! Wake up quickly! Hype it up!”

“Oh finally! Alright, let me lead the slogan! Three, two, one! The stars have fallen!”

“Shut the hell up! Why are you shouting when they aren’t even here yet! Come on! Be more precise!”

As there was no sight of the performers, the emcee broke the awkwardness. “Let’s welcome!”

A few moments later, the stage was still empty. Silence filled the atmosphere. 

“If we’re not able to see the Three Brothers or you, the organizer lied to us, I’m pretty sure the consequences are not something imaginable…”

“I’ve wasted four hours watching these nonsensical performances. If I’m not able to see the Three Brothers and their show, I would mail you guys 30,000 blades every day! They are already on their way alright.”

“30,000?! That’s so little! I personally contribute 300,000 blades! Let’s mail together, everyone! God damn it! Let’s bury the federal Radio and Television Administration!”

Seeing approximately 3 million comments appearing out of a sudden, which includes 2 million threatening letters, the director shivered. “Hey, let’s go! Let’s find out what’s taking them so long!”

Upon entering the waiting room, the director saw the group crowding around to observe  Ye Cang and the others playing the X-hero card game. His chest felt heavy for a second as he was beginning to rage and shout at them but he did not have the courage to. Can’t these people just put their game on hold? Don’t they know which is more important? “Ladies and gentlemen, it’s time to perform~ Everyone is waiting!”

“Give us a moment. We’re almost done here. It’s ending soon! It’s the most intense moment!” Ye Cang complained, neither wanting to budge nor feeling the slightest sense of responsibility 

“Hey, you, don’t make me lose my focus. I’m using my psychokinesis to guess ZhaoZhao’s cards!” Lin Le was staring at SpyingBlade seriously. 

“Director Zhang, what do we do?” The assistants beside the director were sweating. 

With everyone ranting and shouting outside, the director ground his teeth. “We’ll put this scene on live! Let the audience see what they are doing…”

“Don’t you think it’s a bad idea? The Three Brothers would be mad at us.”

“At least it’s better than getting buried in blades as you step out of the office, isn’t it?!”

Suddenly, the live stream changed to the scene behind the stage. Everyone was watching the four of them playing their card game. Surprisingly, the audience did not complain but commented.

“Oh, so that is why. Well, it’s indeed impossible to leave such a match. 10th Yama, the mad King of Martial Art, Mew, and descended Saint Joan of Arc. It is indeed intense.”

“True. Hey, look! Root Emperor - Brother Le is trying to peak SpyingBlade’s card with psychokinesis. I bet he is trying to find out whether his opponent has the King of All Times.”

“Damn it! It would be so much better if the live stream showed their game earlier. It’s itching to know how they got themselves into this situation! What a waste of time watching those meaningless performances! I don’t care! I’m still mailing the blades! Maybe I’ll just reduce the amount!”

“That’s right! It’s a six-man game. I want to know how Roar Emperor’s God Erlang got disqualified! There’s the Son of Mountains and Seas on the table too!”

“The one having the 10th Yama is the Frenzied Shadow - SpyingBlade! It’s his turn now! Let’s see what he gets! Damn! It’s really the King of All Times! He placed it in the ambush area! Acting Emperor is getting into trouble now! Even if the Holy Spear purifies the dark form, it would trigger the King of All Times. Once it’s activated, he can follow up with the Conquering The World card and it would be gg for everyone!”

“Brother Le has gotten the ultimate evolution card - the growing hormone antidote of Kentucky Fried Chicken! Mew is about to evolve into Mega Mew!”

Knowing that it was his last chance, Ye Cang drew a card and hoped for the best. With a cold smile, he said. “Bye everyone! Activating skills! The Saint’s Holy Song!” 

“Shit!” SpyingBlade blurted.

“Remove all non-holy series hidden cards, evolution cards and equipment cards on the field! And sacrifice one card on your hands to me! Come on. Come on.” Ye Cang started to collect the cards, feeling so satisfied. Seeing FrozenCloud not letting go of her own ultimate card, he snatched it from her. “Give it to me! Let me see. Yo! It’s the Peerless King of Martial Arts! This is luck! Come on Lele! I knew you have Mew’s Storm of Psychokinesis. OldZhao, let me see what you’ve got! Oh! It’s Conquering The World! Discard these three cards and I shall draw three new cards. Holy Quenching! Evolving into Holy Spear! Purify OldZhao’s ghostly body of the holy king! Due to the effect of the song, I’ll be entering into the dead status! Activating Brave Sacrificial! Hold on! I’m not done yet. Together with the Holy Sword of Heavenly Flame! Activating Purging Holy Flames! Haha! The winner is me! Haha!”

“It’s time to go! It’s time to go! It’s all Brother Lil’White’s fault that we’re late for the performance.” Lin Le got up calmly and mumbled as he walked away.

“The team leader has no time management at all. Everyone is waiting for us.” FrozenCloud followed up. 

“I knew it. You couldn’t be this lucky. It’s just because it’s past 12 a.m. You’ve just used your little luck that just got replenished this new year. *Sigh*” Staring at the clock pointing at 12 a.m. sharp, SpyingBlade shook his head sadly and headed to the stage. 

“Sister Rose and everyone, my brother’s luck has been completely used. Please take good care of the treasure chest beside you, okay!” Zhang Zhengxiong shook his head as well with his arms crossed. 

“......” Ye Cang was just standing awkwardly, staring at their backs as they complained. “My luck has no limits! It’s destined! All of you are just jealous of my divine hand!”

Everyone turned around and gradually sighed, not batting an eyelid on him.
