Blacksmith: You Are Making Mjolnir For The Forging Exam? - Chapter 40
Chapter 40: Conflict in the Arena
Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
It was precisely due to the enmity between Wei Jiaming and Wu Mo that the two chambers of commerce directly clashed.
On both sides of the arena stood people from both Treasure Pavilion and Unique Treasure Hall.
Treasure Pavilion’s manager, Gao Yue, raised his head to look at the arena. Wei Jiaming was showing off his might, and the fist hidden behind his back could not help but clench.
As a native of Shanglin City, he naturally knew that the Wei family was inextricably linked to Unique Treasure Hall. He also knew that the target of this incident was the rich second generation.
“Manager Gao, there are less than ten minutes left until the start of the match. Do you want to contact Mr. Wu again?”
At that moment, the few staff members standing behind him could not sit still any longer and immediately asked in a low voice.
Gao Yue frowned slightly. He swept a glance at the burning gazes around him. Although he felt a little uneasy, he still believed that Wu Mo would definitely rush over.
“Don’t panic. Since Mr. Wu said that he would help us settle this, he definitely won’t go back on his word,” Gao Yue said in a low voice.
Then, his gaze landed on the group of people on the opposite side of the arena.
More than ten people came from Unique Treasure Hall. Among them were the Five-star blacksmith, Wei Ying, and two cultivators whose cultivation bases even he could not see through.
Behind the few cultivators, an old man with a slightly hunched figure caught his attention.
He thought to himself, that person should be the steward of the Wei family. The act of contacting the media to create publicity should also have been planned by the other party.
As this thought flashed through his mind, Gao Yue slowly retracted his gaze.
He originally wanted to wait for a period of time, but at this moment, the other party seemed to be unable to restrain himself.
“Hey, Manager of Treasure Pavilion, is your family’s special consultant coming or not? Don’t tell me he escaped before the battle?!”
Wei Jiaming stabbed his spear into the ground and said with a mocking expression.
The many blacksmiths behind Wei Ying also echoed his sentiment.
“Sigh, how pitiful. Such a huge chamber of commerce actually relies on a student to turn the tide. If I were Treasure Pavilion’s manager, I would have to commit suicide to thank the world.”
“You’re right. That kid must be scared. After all, Young Master Wei is very powerful. No one of his age can compare to him. It’s normal for that kid to be scared.”
“The time is almost up. Are we going to compete or not? I’m afraid he really is too afraid to come.”
Right then, not only the people from Unique Treasure Hall but even those who were watching the show could not wait any longer and started to protest loudly.
After all, they were all ordinary people and had their own jobs. If it was not for the fact that watching the show would broaden their horizons, they would not waste their precious working time and come over to watch the people from the two chambers of commerce fight.
Seeing the crowd protest, cold sweat broke out on Gao Yue’s forehead.
His heart was a mess. Just as he was feeling anxious, the crowd on the right automatically opened up a path.
“Holy sh*t, that kid is really here!”
“Everyone, get out of the way! Don’t delay the competition!”
With the sound of a commotion, everyone immediately turned their attention over.
They saw a youth wearing a light silver cloak and holding an inconspicuous short stick, rushing over.
The youth was dressed in a simple blacksmith’s outfit. He did not wear any armor that could defend him, and he did not even have a decent weapon.
He looked like a blacksmith that could be seen everywhere in the city.
He did not look like he had prepared meticulously at all.
When the onlookers saw that Wu Mo actually came to accept the challenge dressed in this outfit, they burst into laughter.
“D*mn, am I seeing things? could he be the one who boasted about signing a bet with Unique Treasure Hall?”
“Oh, my god, he’s actually dressed like that. He doesn’t look like he’s here to participate in the chamber of commerce competition. He’s just here to work!”
“I’m dying of laughter. Could it be that this person called Wu Mo has already decided to give up?”
The surrounding crowd widened their eyes, but most of them were mocking him mercilessly.
They thought that Wu Mo was simply there to make a joke.
The many media outlets standing not far away from the arena were also shocked. They thought that they would be able to capture a soul-stirring scene of the competition, but now that they saw one of the contestants actually look like that, they were instantly disappointed.
The people from Treasure Pavilion were standing not too far away and observing. At this point, their hearts could not help but drop.
How could Wu Mo’s attire withstand the long spear in Wei Jiaming’s hand?
In a defensive equipment competition, one should at least wear a piece of armor, right? However, other than a silver cloak on Wu Mo’s body, there was only a cast uniform stained with dust. There was no defense at all.
The difference between the two sides was so great that unless Wu Mo was a powerful cultivator, it was impossible for him to win this competition.
Thinking of the bet that Wu Mo had made with Wei Ying of the Wei family last week, the faces of Treasure Pavilion’s staff members turned pale.
If this situation continued, Wu Mo would not be able to last even one round. By then, the entire Treasure Pavilion would probably be destroyed.
After three to four years of hard work, it was now going to become someone else’s dowry. They simply could not accept this outcome.
“Manager Gao, what should we do this time? I’m afraid you’ve trusted the wrong person!” a few young receptionists said in despair.
The few blacksmiths hired by Treasure Pavilion also had extremely ugly expressions as they spoke unwillingly.
“Manager Gao, why don’t you let me go? Even though I don’t have any defensive capabilities and my equipment isn’t stronger than the Soft Golden Silk Armor, I won’t lose so badly.”
“That’s right. Manager Gao, please think twice. That person is tarnishing the reputation of our Treasure Pavilion!”
At this moment, the few blacksmiths could not sit still anymore. They could see the outcome just by the equipment on Wu Mo’s body. They could not calmly face such a defeat no matter what.
Store Manager Gao looked troubled. He began to struggle in his heart, wondering if he had done anything wrong or if he had misjudged Wu Mo.
However, Gao Yue still believed that Wu Mo was a blacksmith with great potential. As long as the latter was given a certain amount of time, the other party would definitely be able to rush out of the sky of connecting city and become a phoenix that roamed the nine heavens.
However, at first glance, the equipment on Wu Mo’s body did not look like something he could win the competition with at all.
Therefore, at this moment, Gao Yue was in a conflicted state. After struggling for a few seconds, he let out a long sigh.
“Everyone, don’t be impatient. I believe that Wu Mo is definitely not an ordinary person. The reason why he is like this should be that he has his own plans. After all, he is a talented person who can forge an Interspatial Ring. It is impossible for him to be completely unprepared.”
After he spoke, Gao Yue’s breathing became heavy.
This was because he knew that with a single thought, he could decide Treasure Pavilion’s survival. If there were any problems in the future, how would he be able to live up to the years of cultivation that the main store had given him?
