Three hours later, it was still dark.
Xiang Nan had already heard Su Ran get up. She did not turn on the light and was only dressing up by the hazy night.
"Get up. Follow me." After Su Ran settled himself, she called out to Xiang Nan.
"So early?" Xiang Nan looked at the sky and said, "You've only slept for less than three hours."
Su Ran said, "I've already said that my life is very fast. You have to quickly adapt. Today is the first day of the competition. I have a lot of things to do. Hurry up."
Xiang Nan didn't care. He didn't sleep much anyway. He just got up and washed casually before following her down.
In the Crystal Palace Restaurant, Su Ran sat at the dining table, eating while encouraging her team members.
"I've chosen all of you carefully. You will definitely get good results in today's battle! Understood!"
The ten young contestants nodded in unison, "Don't worry, we'll definitely be able to do it!"
"Look!" Su Ran pointed at the contestants and said to Xiang Nan, "This is youthful energy!"
"Look at you again. You're so lazy all day. You don't look like a person who does big things."
The ten contestants immediately looked at Xiang Nan proudly. One of them said in a strange tone, "Yes, we rely on our strength. We are not like some people. We can live a good life with just one face."
Xiang Nan knew that they were talking about him, but he wasn't interested in seeing these little bastards with incomplete fur.
Then Su Ran casually took a few mouthfuls and said, "Follow me. I've invited the best combat mentor in the city while the competition hasn't started."
The group arrived at the training ground on the first floor.
An old man was standing there arrogantly.
The ten contestants hurriedly lined up and waited nervously.
The old man nodded and said, "A mob."
Su Ran hurriedly said, "Mr. Wu Xiu, for my sake, guide them. Although they are young and have little experience, they are all good seedlings."
The old man stroked his beard and nodded, "Alright, if it weren't for you Su Ran personally inviting me, I wouldn't have wasted precious time."
"You should learn from it as well." Su Ran pushed Xiang Nan and said, "Only a good heart is not enough. Strength is the most important!"
"Yes." Xiang Nan nodded.
Mr. Wu Xiu was practicing the contestants, while Xiang Nan was watching boredom from the side.
Xiang Nan's attitude made Su Ran very angry, but after saying it a few times, Xiang Nan was still like this, and she had no other choice.
"Come, come, Brother Xiang Bei, let's go outside and have a chat." The twelve guards couldn't bear to watch any longer. Two of them walked up and carried Xiang Nan out of the training ground.
At the entrance, a guard said to Xiang Nan, "Kid, don't think that you can act so arrogantly here just because you look good."
"Now that Miss Su Ran is protecting you, you can't say for sure in the future."
"What do you mean?" Xiang Nan asked.
Twelve people surrounded Xiang Nan. One of the strong men said, "What do you mean? I'll teach you a lesson!"
"Brothers, attack! Let him know what martial arts are!"
"Don't regret it." Xiang Nan said.
The twelve men had already pounced on him.
In less than three seconds, the twelve people lay on the ground and snorted.
Xiang Nan wiped the blood from his fist and said, "Since when do you want to play? Come and find me. You can stay with me at any time."
The guards were so frightened that they didn't dare to say a word.
"Stand up and clean up. I didn't hit you in the face. No one else can tell." Xiang Nan waved his sleeves and turned around to enter the training ground.
The twelve of them looked at each other in horror.
The competition had officially begun.
The scene was still bustling with activity. Xiang Nan, as Su Ran's personal guard, stood in the lounge and watched the match proceed.
At the same time, his eyes swept across the spectator stands, searching for Old Man Tian Ji.
Why hasn't this Elder of Heavenly Secrets appeared yet? He came out earlier and got the Profound Ice Bomb earlier so that he could meet up with Xiao Jun and the others in the north.
The first day of the battle was exceptionally exciting. All the contestants put their lives on display.
Su Ran's team's results were not bad. He had fought three battles and won two battles. Only one of them had lost to Xue Bufan's team. This made Su Ran very unhappy.
Xiang Nan changed his appearance and claimed that he didn't want to cause more trouble for Su Ran.
Su Ran looked at Xiang Nan's new face and felt that he had deliberately made himself ugly.
"Your disguise technique is quite exquisite. Even I can't see any flaws." Su Ran looked at Xiang Nan curiously.
Xiang Nan, on the other hand, was still observing the audience. For some reason, he felt that there was something wrong with the atmosphere today.
There was nothing wrong with the specifics, and it could not be said.
There was always an inexplicable feeling that someone was eyeing the contestants. To be exact, they were eyeing the competition.
The people from Su Ran's team had just finished their match today, and it was only noon.
Su Ran brought the guards and Xiang Nan back to his lounge.
People came and went in the corridor, and the military guards of the arena strictly guarded every checkpoint.
Xiang Nan followed Su Ran through the corridor, but he had a bad premonition.
In the lounge, Su Ran was sitting in front of the dressing table, simply eating. Her right hand was holding onto the chopsticks, and her left hand was still drawing an eyebrow.
Outside the lounge, a group of Su Ran's admirers would rush in from time to time, clamoring to see Su Ran.
"The match is over. There's another performance tonight." As Su Ran ate, he said, "I'm going to leave in a while to meet an old friend."
"Prepare yourselves. Escort me out. Don't get blocked. Otherwise …"
Before he could finish his words, a loud shout suddenly came from the corridor, "Who is it, retreat!"
Immediately after, there was the sound of someone falling to the ground.
Su Ran's expression changed. The twelve guards immediately pulled out their weapons and blocked the door.
The door of the lounge was knocked open and a group of people rushed inside.
Xiang Nan's heart skipped a beat. Everyone in the corridor had been killed. There must be experts among these admirers!
"Let's go!" Xiang Nan's left hand protected Su Ran and rushed out.
The twelve guards were the first to throw the crowd out and fight in the corridor.
"Don't hurt civilians! Don't hurt civilians!" Su Ran shouted loudly.
A soldier rushed over from the other side of the corridor, but he heard a lot of weapons handing over, followed by a large group of people collapsing.
However, it was not the soldiers who were kidnapped, but a large group of admirers.
There were even two so-called admirers with half of their intestines hanging on their hands!
Xiang Nan narrowed his eyes and whispered, "Those who come are not kind! Quickly leave!"
He protected Su Ran and quickly walked towards the other end. Su Ran was already stunned by the scene in front of him!
"Miss Su Ran, can you shake hands with me?"
The crowd rushed up. As they shouted, one of them held a dagger and stabbed towards Su Ran's waist through the crack in the crowd.
Xiang Nan grabbed the man's wrist with his left hand and slashed down on his shoulder with his right hand. The man immediately lay on the ground, his shoulder bones shattered and his bones stabbed into his heart. He died on the spot.
Another person flashed in, his right hand condensing Yuan Qi, slapping towards Su Ran's back.
Xiang Nan circled back, pushed Su Ran forward with his left hand, and slapped Wei Tuo's palm on the sneak attacker's palm with his right hand.
The sneak attacker's entire right arm exploded with flesh and blood, but he died in the air.
"Let's go!" Xiang Nan pulled Su Ran and ran quickly.
Su Ran was so scared that her face paled, but she gritted her teeth and didn't cry.
