“The second match will be Wen Jingxuan versus Yun Tianbei!” The deep voice sounded once again from the Blood Battle Platform.
The atmosphere was drabber compared to Lu Bowen’s battle. Luochuan smirked as he returned to his seat. He was about to sprout some cynical remarks when he was stopped by Ke Linqi’s glare.
Luochuan feared Ke Linqi greatly. Therefore, he swallowed the words on the tip of his tongue when he saw Ke Linqi’s death stare.
Wen Jingxuan, who was wearing blood-colored robes, looked quiet and easy-going. Yun Tianbei, who seemed at ease in his golden garment, appeared to shine brighter than most.
The two of them stood on the high platform, facing each other and giving off a picturesque vibe.
Neither of them said anything, yet when the two men landed, they immediately locked gazes with each other.
They did not move or take out their weapons. However, the risks involved as they just stood there were frightening.
The Blood Space Ruler and the Pure Sun Ruler did not speak. Although this level of competition was like child’s play to them, the intense atmosphere of this tense match excited both rulers as they waited with eager anticipation.
Luo Yunyang also looked forward to this!
He knew that the moment Wenjing Xuan or Yun Tianbei made a move, it would definitely be an earthshaking blow.
This strike would determine the winner and the loser of the match.
It was uncommon for Star-Grade martialists to compete in terms of raw power or control over Origin Source Laws.
This sort of battle might seem shocking and thrilling, but comparing people of the same level would actually only look aesthetically pleasing.
What they were competing over was their control and use of their cultivation paths. This kind of competition would usually end with a single blow.
Time ticked slowly, yet nobody, not the two competitors or the spectators, showed any sign of annoyance.
In fact, no one even showed any form of impatience.
Lu Bowen coughed softy before quickly covering his mouth.
What he needed right now was to find a place to rest. However, he refused and firmly insisted on watching from the stands.
Time continued to pass slowly. From his position, Luo Yunyang was able to clearly see that beads of sweat had started to form on Wen Jingxuan’s brow.
However, Wen Jingxuan was still as unmoving as a rock.
Although Yun Tianbei hadn’t started to perspire yet, he had also started to look anxious.
“Kill!” Yun Tianbei spat out before his hands moved, conjuring countless flaming spots that looked like stars in the sky and bored towards Wen Jingxuan.
Every flaming spot was very small. However, as they fused together, they appeared like an entire constellation of stars.
Luo Yunyang didn’t dare look down on these flaming spots, as every single one of them possessed an unimaginable amount of power.
These spots were spinning rapidly like a spiraling galaxy in the universe that was solely under Yun Tianbei’s control.
They were everywhere! There was no place to hide or evade them!
Wen Jingxuan did not move. He seemed stunned as he stood in place, oblivious to the blazing ball of fire heading towards him.
Some blood disciples watching the match felt as if they were on the battlefield themselves. They couldn’t help but cry out in alarm as they watched Wen Jingxuan remain motionless.
These exclamations didn’t seem to affect Wen Jingxuan or Yun Tianbei as the flaming spots hovered in the void like stars in the sky.
The atmosphere seemed to stand still at the moment.
However, when the first speck of flaming star nicked Wen Jingxuan’s clothes, he suddenly moved!
The sword in his hands went straight for the concentration of flaming stars.
“Great move!” The first person to say something wasn’t from the Bloody Massacre Path. It was Ke Linqi from the Fiery Sun Path.
The golden-robed Ke Linqi was shining like a blazing sun in approval. There was no sarcasm in his words whatsoever.
Wen Jingxuan stabbed his long sword right into the flaming star. The star wasn’t too big, yet when it came into contact with Wenjing Xuan’s long sword, a large amount of energy erupted from it.
The flaming star cracked a little during this collision with the long sword. As little cracks appeared on it, the flaming star that was about to consume Wen Junxuan seemed to stop in its track as it hovered in mid-air.
Suddenly, everyone understood that Wen Jingxuan’s sword had tackled the heart of the problem.
His sword had already located the nucleus of Yun Tianbei’s flaming star. Once the star was broken, he would win the fight!
Countless fists clenched tightly for a moment.
Luo Yunyang’s fists were also clenched. He didn’t know what would happen next. Right now, he only felt his heart beat faster as he awaited eagerly the upcoming victory.
Yun Tianbei’s sleeves flapped constantly as the stuck flaming star was cracking uncontrollably.
However, despite the cracking sounds it made, the star still did not shatter!
Wen Jingxuan started to turn pale slowly as the flaming spots on the star began to fall again.
They kept falling bit by bit!
This was the moment of victory or defeat, the moment of life or death!
No one dared make a sound or even breathe. Everyone knew that the battle between these two had reached its final climax.
A drop of the flaming star fell onto Wen Jingxuan’s body and scorching flames engulfed his body in an instant.
Meanwhile, Yun Tianbei waved his arm, instantly extinguishing the golden flames that had already wrapped around Wen Jingxuan.
Although Wen Jingxuan was gripping his sword, his hands were shaking.
“I lost!” he said as he looked at the flaming spots around him while sheathing his sword. His eyes were filled with melancholy.
“If this competition had only been between the two of us, then I would have admitted that you won by finding my flaws. I guess you were always ahead of me during this battle!” Yun Tianbei told Wen Jingxuan. “Your battle consciousness is very strong, but your cultivation base is still considerably weaker than mine, which resulted in your inability to break my flaming star’s core. You are a respectable opponent!”
Wen Jingxuan smiled bitterly before he turned and cupped his hands in salute in the direction of the Blood Space Ruler. Then, he walked over to Lu Bowen’s side.
Two defeats in two battles!
If they had suffered two defeats in two battles in the past, the morale of the Bloody Massacre Path’s elites would have taken a hit. However, although they were down two to zero, the morale of the Bloody Massacre Path disciples was still unprecedentedly high.
Even the Blood Space Ruler had a smile on his face.
He was already prepared to lose these battles. However, the disciples who had taken part in these fights hadn’t disappointed him. There were huge flaws in terms of Origin Source Laws in the Bloody Massacre Path’s Sky Book, yet as long as their spirit was undefeated, the Blood Space Ruler would still find ways to make up for it.
“Seems like the Bloody Massacre Path has qualified successors!” The Pure Sun Ruler smiled at the Blood Space Ruler as he spoke. “Those two are good seedlings.”
The Blood Space Ruler nodded and replied proudly, “Not too bad!
During the lull, Tie Wudi, who was supposed to be taking part in the third battle, came out. He was holding a giant blade and seemed to radiate an invincible power that intensified with every step he took.
His opponent was also a tall, big man in a scarlet robe. The man, who had a rosy face, was holding a scarlet axe.
It was Chi Tianya from the Fiery Sun Path, who cultivated the Berserkers Path. This path was composed of raging wind and blazing fire, so he grasped the tempo of the battle firmly in most battles.
However, Chi Tianya discovered that everything was out of his control this time. As he faced this person, he felt instinctive dread.
This dread made him feel uneasy. By the time he was ready to launch an attack, Tie Wudi had already swung his blade.
Two people, as well as a blade and an axe, clashed frantically in mid-air!
The rolling flame and the boundless power of the metallic blood burned the entire Blood Battle Platform into a crimson color. In an instant, it became difficult to distinguish anything clearly. No one knew what was iron, what was blood, and what was human flesh…
They kept fighting in a battle that made everyone’s blood burn.
Almost all the spectators couldn’t help but stand up. The arrival of such an explosive battle was a huge surprise.
However, at the same time, they also felt extremely happy and hopeful. They were looking forward to the outcome of this battle and the result of the final collision.
The collision resonated throughout the Blood Battle Platform like the sound of primal chaos. The bloody ray and the scarlet ray which had originally occupied the Blood Battle Platform dispersed immediately.
Everyone witnessed a scene that every Bloody Massacre Path disciple would never forget—Tie Wudi, who was left with one arm, was holding his blade against Chi Tianya’s neck. Although Chi Tianya wasn’t injured too seriously, he was in a very vulnerable spot. The blade pressed against his neck could take his life at any moment!
Even though he was holding the blade against Chi Tianya’s neck, Tie Wudi had lost an arm and sustained hundreds of intricate scars on his chest. He was also missing a leg.
However, all he needed was to move a little and Chi Tianya would be dead!
“I have been defeated!” Chi Tianya’s voice sounded dry as he gazed at the demon-like Tie Wudi.
However, there was nothing but respect in his eyes as he looked at Tie Wudi in this horrendous condition. Although his injuries would heal up shortly given the Bloody Massacre Path’s abilities, by enduring so many attacks in order to set up a fatal blow, he had gained Chi Tianya’s respect.
This was their first victory!
No one cheered or said anything. However, there was a sparkle in most people’s eyes!
