Restoring the puppets wasn't a difficult task. The key was to use some expensive materials for forging.
Because Su Ran's battle puppet had won, although he was injured, it was not fatal.
Repairing it was relatively easy.
However, if the three puppets wanted to recover to their peak state, they would need at least 30 million gold coins. Su Ran had only earned 16 million tonight, so he could only repair the three puppets.
Seeing the three wounded puppets being played around in the hands of the Xuandao cultivators, Su Ran's eyes were red and his heart was extremely nervous.
"Can you fix it before dawn?" Su Ran asked nervously.
A Xuandao cultivator glanced at Su Ran and said, "Almost. Fortunately, your three puppets didn't hurt any vital parts."
"The few of us are the top puppet cultivators of Amethyst City. Just put your heart into your stomach."
Su Ran leaned against the chair and was pushed awake. She hurriedly asked, "How is my puppet?"
Xiang Nan said, "Almost. Although it has only been repaired by 70%, it should be able to participate in the competition. Don't worry, it doesn't matter."
"That's great." Su Ran suddenly came to his senses and said, "Let's go. Our match is in the morning. Hurry up and go over. I want to cheer for the team members."
Xiang Nan took the puppet and sent it into the arena.
At the entrance, the three contestants were extremely nervous. Today was the tenth day of the competition. After today, the last two days would be the finals, and it was also a team competition.
It could be said that today's battle was of utmost importance. The more puppets left behind, the more advantages there would be in the team competition.
It was Su Ran's turn to play.
Amidst the cheers of the audience, the team member controlled the puppet and nervously stepped onto the main arena.
And this battle happened to encounter Xue Bufan's squad!
Xue Bufan's puppet had obviously used even more expensive refining materials. The entire puppet was emitting a faint golden color, making it look incomparably sturdy.
"Heh, Ran Ran." Xue Bufan stood beside Su Ran, hugging his shoulders and smiling, "I gave you a chance, but you didn't appreciate it and refused to follow me."
"Today, I will make you regret it."
Su Ran glared at Xue Bufan.
Xiang Nan dodged and stood between the two of them. He said to Xue Bufan, "Isn't it enough to get beaten up? Get lost! Otherwise, I'll break your leg in front of everyone."
Xue Bufan was so frightened that he shrank his neck. He was still very afraid of Xiang Nan in the depths of his heart. This kind of rich family disciple was spoiled for the rest of his life. Anyone who really raised their eyebrows and beat them up fiercely would have an indissoluble fear in their hearts.
Xue Bufan looked at Xiang Nan with resentment and gritted his teeth, "Alright, now you guys are going to be tough on me. In a while, I'll make sure you don't get off the stage!"
The game has begun.
Xue Bufan's team members fought with Su Ran's team members. The two puppets fought back and forth, fighting like tigers and tigers.
However, Xue Bufan's team member was a middle-aged man with close to a thousand battles experience. Obviously, he was not something that a brat like Su Ran's team member could compare to.
From the beginning, Su Ran's puppet was suppressed and beaten.
Later, Xue Bufan's puppet split Su Ran's puppet in half.
Immediately after, Xue Bufan's team members stepped forward and trampled the members of Su Ran's squad to death on the arena!
When the puppet lifted its right leg, the corpse of the trampled team member was still stuck under its feet!
"You!" Su Ran was so angry that her face turned red. She angrily scolded Xue Bufan, "You must have done it on purpose! He clearly can stop, why must he kill someone!"
Xue Bufan shrugged his shoulders, "How could there be so many misgivings on the battlefield? Life and death are the most normal laws."
Su Ranming knew that Xue Bufan was deliberately trying to look good on himself, but there was nothing he could do about it.
However, an even worse situation has emerged.
One member of the squad was killed on the spot, while the other two members found Su Ran at this time and wanted to retire!
"What?" Su Ranru was stunned by the lightning.
One of the team members apologized. "I really can't fight anymore. I'm no match for those people. Furthermore, I don't want to risk my life just because of a match."
Su Ran said, "I will give you the best treatment. I will let you live well, eat well, drink well! Even the expensive food that I can't bear to eat is provided to you in unlimited quantities every day!"
"I gave you the highest crowd! The best care, but you all want to abandon me on the spot!"
The team member gritted his teeth and said, "I'm sorry, Miss Su Ran, but I really don't want to die. Just pretend that I'm ungrateful. I really can't play this match. I'm sorry."
After saying that, the team member turned around and left.
Su Ran rushed forward, unable to pull him back.
In the end, the team member was so impatient that he even threw Su Ran out.
Xiang Nan rushed up and hugged Su Ran, then slapped the team member and sent him flying.
The team member's face was covered in blood as he glared at Xiang Nan angrily.
"You can choose to protect yourself. That's your right," Xiang Nan said coldly. "But since you are willing to be an ungrateful person, you should at least show the humility you deserve, not be so rude to your former employer!"
"Forget it, forget it, let him go." Su Ran leaned against the wall dejectedly. She no longer cared about that.
The last member also walked over hesitantly and said, "I..."
"What? Even you want to leave me?" Su Ran smiled miserably, "In order to repair the puppets for you, I have been forced to take out all my belongings."
"I'm sorry." The team member bowed deeply to Su Ran and said, "I'm the only one. Even if I win today, I won't be able to face the team competition alone tomorrow and win."
"Miss Su Ran, it was me who let you down. I'm sorry."
After saying that, the team member carefully circled around Xiang Nan and ran away.
After the organizers learned of the news, they publicly announced it.
All the spectators were incomparably surprised as they looked at Su Ran with sympathetic eyes.
Su Ran stood on the field, under the arena, his entire body was covered.
She looked up and saw countless sympathetic gazes. She saw someone shaking his head and someone laughing. She only felt that the sky was spinning and the entire world had turned black.
"Are you alright?" Xiang Nan leaned over and whispered.
Su Ran lowered her head. After a long time, she gritted her teeth and said, "No! Even so, I can't give up the competition!"
"Since they won't help me, I will personally go on stage!"
"What?" Xiang Nan was shocked, "Are you crazy? You want to fight in person? Furthermore, you are not a competitor, so you are not qualified to participate in the arena competition, right?"
Su Ran made up her mind and said forcefully, "Yes, the name of the puppet is registered in the competition, not the name of the contestant. I can go on stage at any time and replace any contestant."
Xiang Nan was so angry that he shouted angrily, "Why didn't you tell me about this earlier?"
Su Ran was shocked. She subconsciously shrunk her neck and said, "Why are you so fierce all of a sudden?"
Xiang Nan was used to fighting in the Martial Arts Arena. He subconsciously believed that talent was the most important thing and could not be replaced. He had never heard of someone who would not change weapons.
But in this kind of puppet competition, it was actually to register a "weapon", not a contestant! Contestants can be replaced at any time!
Xiang Nan shook his head and sighed, "Since that's the case, it'll be much easier."
"Don't try to be brave. I've seen you before. It's just a beautiful trick."
"From today onwards, I will help you play the game."
Then Su Ran was stunned, "Can you do it?"
"Remove the word" Mo "." "Do you know how many people are willing to spend countless amounts of money to hire me?" Xiang Nan laughed.
"You've picked up the treasure. The arena competition is as easy as the back of my palm for me."
"But you only know how to fight, but you've never controlled a puppet." Su Ran was also excited, but he was still worried in his heart, "Fighting with puppets is different from fighting with the body."
"Just get used to it. There shouldn't be a problem." Xiang Nan twisted his neck and said, "The next match is in the afternoon."
"Before that, take me to familiarize myself with the way the puppets are used. Tell me everything you know."
"Don't worry, I'll help you get back all the face that others have lost!"
