"Alright! Will the first 16 contestants enter the arena please! Go onto your ring that the tag has allocated you!" A voice came from nowhere reverberating throughout the entire colosseum.
When Maria and the spectators had heard that, they all immediately turned their attention towards the middle of the colosseum.
'Hey! That's Chad! It looks like he was unlucky enough to go first… Sigh, whatever, I already bet for all of them so this should be alright. I can't wait to see how much coins we earn after this!' Maria thought to herself happily as she completely threw Chad aside and only prayed he won.
'You better win Chad! If you don't, I will tell Sylvie! And I will give you a form of punishment! You shall not make us lose a single coin!' Maria warned him mentally.
"Who is sneezing - I mean who is talking bad about me behind my back?" Chad muttered to himself as he rubbed his nose. He looked around at the spectator stands and realized he could not see anybody.
After observing for a while longer, he realized there was glass surrounding them. It was to protect the spectators and also hide them from the participants.
'I wonder how durable this glass is…' Chad thought to himself as he no longer focused on the glass that could not be explained by logic and decided to focus on the opponent that was on the ring with him.
"Well then, nice to meet you. The name is Chad, let's have a great match shall we?" Chad said as he stretched out his hand for a handshake.
"We don't do that here in the Underground World. You better get used to it." His opponent said to him as they looked at him coldly. Obviously itching to punch Chad in the face.
"Well then, is that so. I wish you the best of luck then." Chad said as he got his cards out from his deck.
The arena got silent as they all waited for the referee's count.
"Begin in 3!"
"Start!" The referee said as the matches started in sync with his signal.
"Die, kid!" His opponent shouted at him as he dashed towards him with his blade. When he had reached Chad, he grinned. Bringing down his blade on Chad's head he was already happy he had won his first match.
However, he did not know that the goddess did not favor him. Him being overconfident and him lowering his guard had caused him his downfall.
"Earth Card: Iron Shield!" Chad said as he threw a card right in front of him.
"Wha-!" His opponent cried out in shock as he rebounded off the shield sending him flying back.
'Where did that shield come from? What?' His opponent thought inside his head confusedly. He decided to proceed cautiously now, as his opponent was definitely not a simple one.
'Heh, I already have him set up for my trap. As long as he charges one more time, he is done for." Chad said as he held a card behind his back.
