"So youre Sword Genius? You dont look like you're anything special." The young lady commented as she checked Lin Huang out.
"Im just an ordinary person, theres nothing special about me." Lin Huang nodded.
"Can you take off your mask?" The young lady asked.
"Sorry, I cant do that." Lin Huang rejected directly.
"Why not?" The young lady did not give up.
"Because Im ugly, I dont want to scare people away." Lin Huang came up with an excuse.
"Nevermind then!" The young lady knew that it was just an excuse to mess with her.
Although it was the first time meeting Ebonella, Lin Huang knew her well. She had a variety of combat styles so Lin Huang spent more time studying her videos.
"Are you here for the points as well?" Lin Huang was curious as she did not look like a greedy person. Ever since she entered the top 10, she hardly challenged anymore and most of the time, she was invited to battles by the system instead.
"Of course not, Im not interested in points or rankings," Ebonella said.
Just when Lin Huang wanted to ask her the actual reason she accepted the challenge, she spoke again.
"Im interested in you."
It was chaos among the audience as she said those words.
"The beauty is confessing her love in public!"
"Sword Genius is so lucky!"
"Is this love at first sight?"
Ebonella seemed to realize that what she said might be misleading so she added, "Im just curious about the person who managed to break The Final Fortress' defense."
"His defense was powerful but there was an obvious flaw. Since long as my attack was stronger than his defense, it was not difficult to break through it. There was no skill needed." Lin Huang said.
"Tell me what are my flaws then." Ebonella smiled at Lin Huang.
"Do you really want to know? What Im going to say might not be something you want to hear." Lin Huang smiled.
"As long as its reasonable, theres nothing that I cant accept." Ebonella crossed her arms.
As they spoke, the countdown ended. However, they did not have the plan to attack anytime soon.
"Alright, I shall tell you then." Lin Huang nodded.
"You are similar to the Gold-Armored Ape that the Imperial Censor summoned earlier."
"You" Ebonella became furious as she listened to what Lin Huang described her. However, she wanted to let him finish so she tolerated, "I'll kill you if you dont give me a reasonable explanation!"
The audience gasped as Lin Huang compared Ebonella with the Gold-Armored Ape.
"The Gold-Armored Ape isnt weak at all, no matter how you slice it. Its strength, explosive power, and speed were immensely powerful. However, among all the summoning monsters, it's hard for it to climb to the top. Since it was good in all aspects, it caused the ape to not reach its peak."
"Just like you, you have strong strength, speed and explosive power with rich combat experiences as well as the mastery of the battle rhythm. You have many combat styles so nobody can foresee which weapons you're going to use. There seems to be no flaw. However, thats your biggest problem. You can never peak."
"Unlike the defensive ability of The Final Fortress, the attack ability of Yu Moli and the speed of Explosive Female Demon, their combat style was structured by their biggest advantage. You have no advantage in your combat style so you're easily affected by those who have superior combat strength during battles. As soon as your rhythm is affected, the only thing you can rely on is to change your weapons to adjust your rhythm. When you encounter opponents who can adapt to the battle rhythm quickly, you'd have to change weapons many times to defeat your opponent. A simple battle would then become difficult and drain all your energy"
Lin Huangs analysis made many in the audience realize that the Ebonella would always change her weapons rapidly in battles. Although Ebonella knew Lin Huang was right, she did not want to admit it.
"Hmph, I dont accept your explanation. How dare you say Im similar to a Gold-Armored Ape You are the one who's like a Gold-Armored Ape. Your and your entire family are Gold-Armored Apes as well!" A white paper umbrella appeared on in Ebonella's hand. She pointed the umbrella at Lin Huang and opened fire.
Her attack speed was much weaker than Explosive Female Demon. Lin Huang did not even activate his Blood Spirit wings as he walked towards her with Cloud Steps . Seeing Lin Huang approaching her, Ebonella attempted to change the form of her weapon. The umbrella rotated and transformed into a spear. The spear was long and seemed like a dragon lunging towards Lin Huang. She attempted to get Lin Huang away from her with the length of her spear.
However, it was a naive thought. Lin Huang avoided her attack easily and walked towards her again. Ebonella was shocked, she pulled out a short sword from the middle of the umbrella and stabbed it towards Lin Huangs chest. Suddenly, a sword appeared in Lin Huangs hand and before the short sword managed to reach him, a purple glow flashed in the air. Ebonella stopped moving. As she looked at her waist, blood continuously came out of it.
"How did this happen"
"Your sword is slower than mine." Lin Huang put his sword away and explained. Ebonella was sliced in half and disappeared from the ring.
"Congratulations. You have won the battle!"
"You managed to kill your opponent in one hit, you have obtained 2 points!"
Many of them did not expect the battle to end so fast, including Lin Huang himself. If this happened five days ago, the battle between him and the Ebonella would be dreadful. However, since Thunder Sword was upgraded to Thunder Sting , his speed was more than three times faster than before which allowed him to kill her in one hit.
"Its the 89th battle now, my next opponent should be Yu Moli!" Lin Huang was excited as Yu Moli was a powerful opponent. Moreover, as long as he managed to defeat him, the multiple of points from the 90-win streak would allow him to accomplish the mission that Mr. Fu assigned him.
Everyone in the audience was anticipating the last match. After the body of Ebonella disappeared, Lin Huang was sent back to the original point in the arena. His opponent, Yu Moli appeared as expected
