Chapter 1269: The Princess Wins!
Translator: Atlas Studios Editor: Atlas Studios
If Xia Wanyuan wanted to get a piece of land from Earl Dray, Xia Wanyuan naturally had to make a bet.
She looked at Earl Dray. “What do you need me to do? Please tell me.”
Earl Dray thought that he would definitely win, so he was thinking about his gift very seriously.
Li Qingxue crazily hinted to Earl Dray.
Receiving Li Qingxue’s hint, Earl Dray thought for a while.
He could tell that his daughter had taken a fancy to Jun Shiling.
Men looked like they had a good relationship with their wives now. As long as another woman was by his side,
It would not be long before the man fell for her.
Other than being a general, Earl Dray was also a person who knew how to play with power.
The Second Prince of England, whom he supported, was almost as powerful as Prince Charlie.
If Li Qingxue could really marry Jun Shiling, with a powerful force like the Jun Corporation joining, the second prince’s chances of winning would be stable.
Hence, Earl Draynodded at Li Qingxue and looked at Jun Shiling.
“I want to ask CEO Jun for a chance. My daughter is about to stay in China permanently. When the time comes and she enters CEO Jun’s territory, please help her more.”
Jun Shiling’s expression was calm. “There’s no need for me to guide the daughter of the Dray family.”
Only then did Earl Dray turn to look at Xia Wanyuan. “Mrs. Jun, the prize I want is that when Li Qingxue goes to China, please allow her to learn in the Jun Corporation.”
It was not strange for Earl Dray’s words to fall into everyone’s ears. After all, the success of the Jun Corporation was there. Everyone wanted to go in and learn, but they did not have the chance.
These words had another meaning in Xia Wanyuan’s ears. Xia Wanyuan chuckled. These people had racked their brains to want my position as Madam Jun.
“No problem.” Xia Wanyuan agreed.
If they wanted it, it depended on whether she was willing to give it to them.
Hearing Xia Wanyuan’s words, Li Qingxue’s eyes revealed excitement.
In literature, perhaps she could not compare to Xia Wanyuan, but in terms of martial arts, her father was the most amazing general in England. He would definitely be able to compare to Xia Wanyuan.
Seeing that the bet had been agreed, the surrounding people felt that this matter was interesting.
After all, Xia Wanyuan looked really thin and small, and Earl Dray looked like he could pick her up with one hand.
Jun Shiling wrapped his arm around Xia Wanyuan’s waist and looked at her worriedly.
He was not worried about Xia Wanyuan’s ability, but Xia Wanyuan was still pregnant. He was worried that something would happen.
Xia Wanyuan gave Jun Shiling a reassuring look.
“Don’t worry, I only agreed because I know what I’m doing.”
If it were anyone else today, Xia Wanyuan would not be so confident.
However, after saying a few words to Earl Dray, Xia Wanyuan had a certain understanding of his personality.
Sometimes, one did not need much strength to deal with such a man who only used violence and brute force.
In her previous life, when Xia Wanyuan’s master was teaching her martial arts, he considered that she was a girl.
There were fewer direct moves like that. Most of them taught Xia Wanyuan how to deflect a thousand pounds with four or five moves and how to borrow strength.
Earl Dray was already prepared. Seeing that Xia Wanyuan and Jun Shiling were still talking, a hint of disdain flashed across Earl De Lei’s eyes.
“Mrs. Jun, if there’s anything inconvenient, you can say it now. We can cancel it.”
Xia Wanyuan patted Jun Shiling’s hand and walked to Earl Dray.
“There’s no inconvenience. How can we compete? Do as you please.”
Xia Wanyuan’s words were quite confident, and the surrounding crowd was a little shocked.
They even wondered if Xia Wanyuan knew who the man standing in front of her was.
This was a fierce general!
However, Xia Wanyuan stood there quietly, neither servile nor overbearing, her expression calm. The confidence that came from her bones made one’s heart feel an inexplicable trust in Xia Wanyuan.
“Brother, what are you worried about?” Seeing Wei Zimu’s uneasy expression, the corners of Yu Qian’s lips curled up slightly as he took a sip of red wine.
Wei Zimu knew that Xia Wanyuan was very amazing, but he could not help but worry. “Is my worry in your way?”
Yu Qian smiled and did not answer. Instead, he looked at Xia Wanyuan, who was not far away.
Xia Wanyuan’s tone and attitude angered Earl Dray greatly. He looked at Xia Wanyuan angrily.
Facing Earl Dray’s anger, Xia Wanyuan still did not react. She only asked again, “What are we competing in?”
Earl Dray took a deep breath. “I heard that Madam Jun’s swordsmanship is amazing. Let’s compete in swordsmanship.”
Earl Dray had always looked down on those so-called swordplayers.
Because to him, who had experienced life and death on the battlefield, that kind of sports sword competition was no different from children playing house.
In their training, blood was needed.
Over the past few days, he had always heard others praise Xia Wanyuan’s swordsmanship, but he had never taken it to heart. It was because of this.
“No problem.” Xia Wanyuan nodded. “Please.”
The two of them walked to the tidied area in the middle of the hall.
A staff brought up the protective suit and sword.
Earl Dray looked disdainfully at the protective suit in the staff’s hand. “Women have to wear protective suits for fencing. I’m not wearing this!”
In Earl Dray’s expectations, Xia Wanyuan would be defeated by him in less than a move. He would not be able to use the protective suit at all. He could not even be bothered to unsheathe his sword.
The staff had no choice but to look at Xia Wanyuan.
Xia Wanyuan calmly took the protective suit.
She was confident that she could defeat Earl Dray and protect herself.
There was no conflict between protecting herself and having good swordsmanship.
Soon, she came out after changing.
Earl Dray looked at Xia Wanyuan disdainfully.
As expected, women were useless and afraid of death. “Please. Why don’t I give you three moves first?”
Xia Wanyuan took the sword from the side. “No need.”
Earl Dray casually took the sword in his hand. “Then, sorry for the offense.”
The two swords were unsheathed at the same time. The blades flickered silver under the light, causing the surrounding onlookers to take a step back.
Although Earl Dray’s character was average, he was able to become a general of England, so he naturally had his countrymen’s skills in martial arts.
Looking at his aura as he held the sword, Xia Wanyuan understood that this person was very different from the athletes on the fencing field in the past.
Xia Wanyuan focused her entire heart on the sword in her hand. With a slight movement of her wrist, she stepped forward with the sword.
Earl Dray had always been in a 30% strength state. He had originally wanted to finish Xia Wanyuan in one move.
However, when Xia Wanyuan stepped forward with her sword, Earl Dray’s expression suddenly changed.
Because he sensed a powerful sword momentum from Xia Wanyuan. It could only be displayed in a battle between experts.
Earl Dray was shocked. It seemed that Xia Wanyuan was indeed something.
He quickly adjusted his condition and raised his sword to fight.
Because Earl Dray had underestimated his enemy, Xia Wanyuan had obtained some advantage in their first move.
Earl Dray was forced back half a step by Xia Wanyuan.
From these few seconds, he already knew that Xia Wanyuan’s strength could not be underestimated.
Hence, in the following competition, he adjusted his mentality and used all his strength to fight.
At the end of the day, Earl Dray was a general who led troops to fight. He was very strong, and Xia Wanyuan was fighting him.
In the hall, sword shadows flickered, and the crisp sound of the swords hitting each other seemed to hit everyone’s hearts.
To everyone’s surprise, everyone thought that Xia Wanyuan would quickly be defeated. However, after dozens of moves, Xia Wanyuan still maintained a draw with Earl Dalei.
Everyone was shocked. That was Earl Dray.
Regardless of whether Xia Wanyuan could win this competition or not, to be able to maintain a draw with him for so long was already quite amazing.
At this moment, in the competition venue, Earl Desire was feeling more and more powerless.
Xia Wanyuan’s strength attack was actually not strong, but she would borrow the power from Dray to counterattack.
When Earl Dray attacked, he felt that he could not do anything to Xia Wanyuan if he hit cotton.
However, when Xia Wanyuan counterattacked, he could feel the power he had just released completely rebound.
Xia Wanyuan’s own strength, coupled with his own, made him unable to resist at all.
Gradually, even the surrounding crowd could tell that Earl Dray was starting to fall into a disadvantage.
At this moment, Xia Wanyuan’s sword moves suddenly became faster, dazzling everyone. One could almost only see afterimages.
Xia Wanyuan’s sudden change caught Earl Dray off guard.
He responded in a panic, but he lost his head.
At that moment, Xia Wanyuan found his fatal weakness. She slashed over and hit him.
The tip of Xia Wanyuan’s sword was pressed against Earl Dray’s apple.
As long as he took another step forward, Earl Dray would definitely die.
“Okay!!” In the silence, Prince Charlie was the first to clap.
Looking at Earl Dray’s defeated expression, Prince Charlie was in a good mood. This Dray brought his forces to oppose him all day long.
Now that Xia Wanyuan had won, Prince Charlie felt relieved. His eyes lit up as he looked at Xia Wanyuan.
As expected of my idol. She’s too amazing!!!
Looking at the cold sword in front of him, Earl Dray was in disbelief.
How was that possible? How did I lose to Xia Wanyuan!!
Prince Charlie was very happy, but the others were not.
After all, Earl Dray was a general of England. If word got out that the general of England could not defeat a woman from China, it would be too embarrassing.
Hence, someone under Earl Dray stood up. “Earl Dray has been busy with the banquet recently. He must be tired.”
“That’s right. It’s understandable for us to make occasional mistakes in this kind of thing. I think just competing once in swordsmanship doesn’t mean anything. We should implement the best of three according to international practice.”
“Yes, yes, yes.” The others hurriedly echoed, “It should be two out of three rounds. There’s no winner in a sports competition.”
Hearing everyone’s discussion, Xia Wanyuan’s eyes were filled with disdain. She looked at Earl Dray. “What do you think, Earl?”
Sensing the strange gazes on his face, Earl Dray’s face flushed red.
Although it was very embarrassing, he still raised his neck.
