322 Victory 3

 Qi Xia leaned against Tang Nazhi's shoulders as he smiled at Shen Yanxiao, who stood on the stage. Yan Yu and Yang Xi had also rushed to the venue, and they were equally happy when they witnessed Shen Yanxiao's glorious moment.

At that very instant, the first-year students all cheered in excitement while the faces of the second and third-year students were drained of all colors. It looked as if they could not even keep their spirits up.

A junior had cruelly shamed their classmate, so how would they have the motivation to hold their heads high in front of the first-year students?

Shangguan Xiao had lowered his head in silence amid those joyful cheers. He had used one of the most potent intermediate-level potions, and yet that was still not enough to go against Shen Yanxiao. He had been thoroughly defeated.

That was his first defeat to someone in the Herbalist Division, so that particular setback had crushed his confidence.

He had left the arena discreetly so that no one would notice his exit. Everything that happened at that moment seemed like a mockery toward him.

The number one student in the Herbalist Division had been defeated by a first-year junior who had only been at the academy for less than half a year.

He could not face the reality of his defeat.

The competition ended with Shen Yanxiao's overwhelming victory. The teachers gave a few more instructions to Shen Yanxiao before they told her that she could go.

Before Shen Yanxiao could even step out of the venue, a tall figure lifted her.

"Haha, little girl. You are really an unexpected one!" Tang Nazhi laughed loudly as he boosted her. It was an effortless movement due to Shen Yanxiao's weight.

Shen Yanxiao was stunned when she was lifted to the air. However, when she saw Tang Nazhi's brilliant smile, she did not know whether she should laugh or cry.

"Hey, idiot! Let me down now!" Even though she had the physical attributes of a child, she still had the mentality of an adult. So how could she endure it when someone physically lifted her?

"Nope!" Tang Nazhi said with a chuckle.

"Hey, that's enough!" Shen Yanxiao glared at Tang Nazhi speechlessly. Why did it look as if he was happier than she was even though she was the one who won the competition?

Qi Xia and the others had also walked toward them. All of them smiled when Tang Nazhi lifted Shen Yanxiao.

"Hey, you three bastards. What are you laughing at? Tell him to put me down quickly." Shen Yanxiao glared at them moodily. She had attracted everyone's attention when she was announced the winner of the competition. Coupled with Tang Nazhi's excitable actions, the students at the arena were all staring at her.

"Nazhi, put her down." Qi Xia laughed softly as he persuaded Tang Nazhi to put her down. It was a rare occasion where it looked like even he was in a good mood.

It was only then that Tang Nazhi released his hold on Shen Yanxiao.

"Great job! Your brother here shall play host and treat you to a good meal." Tang Nazhi laughed as he patted Shen Yanxiao's head.

"That's a must, of course. After all, I've helped to save you tons of money." Shen Yanxiao quirked her eyebrows. She had indeed helped to save the large sum of gold coins that Tang Nazhi had prepared for the bet.

"Yes, yes, yes, my dear lady. You're the best," Tang Nazhi said in a child-like tone as if he was trying to humor a little kid.

Shen Yanxiao rolled her eyes at him.

"Yes, that's right. I did hear something about a wager between TangNazhi and Shangguan Xiao. Since you've won, how are you planning to handle that wager?" Yan Yu asked with a smile.

It was only then that Tang Nazhi recalled the terms of his bet with Shangguan Xiao.

"I'll let Xiaoxiao handle it. That Shangguan Xiao kid was very proud, was he not? Since he had wanted to expel me from the Herbalist Division, let's see who's leaving now."
