46 Impress Him

"S-Senior Xie!" Zhong Yilan almost lost her calculated elegance when she stammered. But she regained her composure quickly and said, "That's so kind of you to motivate Yun Qing-er like this.

"If you can challenge him, Zhong Yilan, I don't see why I cannot."

I nodded. "If I could have the honor, I'd like to challenge you first during the tournament."

"You can't!" Zhong Yilan exclaimed before Xie Lun replied. "You made a bet with me first!"
