“You…” Xia Yan stepped forward to argue but was dragged backward by Jiang Xiao.

However, just in terms of physical attributes and quality, Jiang Xiao was definitely inferior to her. That also caused him to be dragged away by her.

Seeing that something wasn't right, Li Weiyi hurriedly tried to help forcefully pull her back.

Xia Yan was boiling with fury, and she seemed to be yelling, but Jiang Xiao covered her mouth.

“You can't get into a conflict with the rescuers. Calm down!” Jiang Xiao exclaimed anxiously.

Xia Yan abruptly recovered from the shock and then stopped struggling.

Jiang Xiao's words reminded everyone.

The soldier said in a deep voice, “I'm asking you again, do you have any objections?”

“All of you, don't talk to him,” Jiang Xiao said while adjusting his headband and aiming it at the soldier. At the same time, he pressed the invisible earphone and said, “Referee, can we apply for an inspection of this situation?”

Since his earphones were connected to the other members of the team, they could obviously be connected to the referee too.

A man said in a low voice, “What's there to check?”

Jiang Xiao said, “It's unreasonable for us to be rescued this time. It's completely unnecessary.”

The referee said the exact same thing as the soldier did. “You have no right to question the judgment of the rescuer.”

Jiang Xiao said, “We don't have the right to do so, but the organizers do. All humans make mistakes, and so will the rescuers. Everyone has video recordings, and people all over the world are watching. The Ancient Warriors had all been silenced by me. Han Jiangxue had already begun releasing Chain Lightning, and the enemies had no means to retaliate.

“Not all contestants have to flee when they run into Ancient Warriors. You can check on our battle performance in the past day. I hope you will investigate this situation.”

Jiang Xiao continued, “We can forgo the battle spoils, but we shouldn't be considered to have asked for aid this time.”

After hearing those words, the soldier's face turned sullen, and a look of menace formed in his eyes.

After a while, the referee's response could be heard coming from the invisible earphones. “The standard review will be conducted uniformly after the compet.i.tion. Regardless of which party violates the rules, all violators will be strictly sanctioned. Jiangbin High School, continue with the compet.i.tion.”

Jiang Xiao and the others looked at each other with solemn expressions.

It's the National High School League, which the entire world is watching, and something like this actually happened!?! 

They're really daring, eh!?!

“I hope he really made an error in judgment,” Xiong Chumo said softly.

Everyone turned their heads and looked at her. “I really hope he made a mistake in judgment. Otherwise…”

Everyone panicked because that was indeed the truth.

If the soldier was really r.e.t.a.r.ded, it would be a blessing in disguise.

However, if he had done it deliberately, it would be hard for them to compete.

Jiang Xiao knew that this was just an unrealistic fantasy.

The soldiers rushed into the realm of his Sound of Silence, and it was impossible for them not to detect that the Ancient Warriors had been suppressed and controlled by others. Han Jiangxue had also thrown out her Chain Lightning, and the overall situation had already been set. It was impossible for the soldiers to make any wrong judgments.

Or maybe, the soldier can't stop because of inertia? Or is he coveting the Star Beads? 

Truth be told, Jiang Xiao hoped that the soldier was just too prideful and didn't want to stop halfway, lest others think that he made a mistake in judgment. Hence, he forced himself to go through the motions.

No matter what the situation was, Jiang Xiao had no reason to respect someone like him.

Jiang Xiao waved his hand at the soldier smilingly and said, “Friend, the Star Warrior Officers have their respective areas to guard over. Where's yours?”

The soldier was dumbfounded.

Jiang Xiao smiled and said, “I just thought I should stay away from you. These mates of mine have worked hard for several years, and they train hard day and night. They want to stand out and shine during this year's National League. We don't want to be rescued by you again and end up being thrown out of the compet.i.tion.”

With a sullen expression, the soldier yelled, “Shut up!”

Numerous pop-up messages appeared on the screen of the live-stream. The matter had clearly attracted a lot of attention and discussion.

“Hey, this little toxic healer has such a sharp tongue, eh?”

“The toxic healing king is telling the truth. We have worked so hard to break through Beijiang and make it to the National League. We've been doing well in the preliminary round, but we ended up having to pay for someone else's mistakes? Why is this acceptable?”

“Is this a dirty trick?”

“I don't know. All the cameras are showing flames. It's too chaotic. I feel that the two teams were really in a critical situation just now, however.”

“This is a National League, and the whole world is watching. It's impossible for them to pull any dirty tricks. We'll wait for the referee's report.”

Su Rou also had a solemn expression. From the perspective of the team just now, it was indeed chaotic, thus making others think that the two teams were in trouble. However, Su Rou believed that something was fishy.

He tossed the bird onto his head and turned to look at her. “It calls you Mommy while I call you Sissy. Nothing wrong with that.”

Xiong Chumo was speechless.

The yellow-green parrot tilted its head and looked at Xiong Chumo before calling, “Sissy, Sissy~”

Xiong Chumo's face turned pale!

It's difficult to learn to be obedient, but it's a piece of cake to be led astray. 

Who are you calling Sissy? I'm your mother! 

I need to save myself from the embarra.s.sment.

The yellow-green parrot stood on Jiang Xiao's head with one foot raised. It used that foot to gesture in a certain direction. “Squeak~ Squeak~ Squeak~”

Everyone was taken aback and looked around, only to realize that they seemed to have heard the sounds of boxes being opened.

They suddenly recovered from the shock and looked at the yellow-green parrot. They wondered, This parrot actually make such a sound? 

Everyone thought that a chest was being opened because of how vivid he sounded.

The yellow-green parrot hopped on one foot and gestured in another direction while mimicking the interesting sounds of friction.

Was it trying to mimic the sounds made by the treasure chests when the students opened the ones on the first few floors?

What kind of bird is this?

Kid, you're very spiritual, huh? 

Han Jiangxue nodded thoughtfully and said, “Let's go.”

Having verified the location, everyone moved forward quickly, and at the same time, a mysterious cloaked man walked out of the entrance of the hall on the fifth floor.

“This is my jurisdiction.” The soldier in the camouflage uniform's voice came from afar, and he said, “Please leave.”

The cloaked man hung his head low and remained standing quietly.

The soldier in camouflage uniformed seemed rather hostile as he strode forward and said, “This is my jurisdiction…”

All of a sudden, the cloaked man revealed the stone chisel and stone hammer in large cuffs and walked towards the soldier in the camouflage uniform.

The soldier's expression suddenly changed as he quickly retreated while the cloaked man sped up…
