“This is not an equal match!” Wen Jingxuan exclaimed. Although he was already plastered with quite a lot of medicine, he still seemed to be lacking in strength.
After all, he had consumed too much of his energy a short while earlier.
Tie Wudi, who had a newly-regenerated set of hands and legs and was currently rejuvenating his strength in a crystal glass, lamented, “If Luo Yunyang was given 100 years, he might just be able to reach the highest standards of the Great Chaotic Hole Path. If that happened, we might just achieve victory.”
“There is also a possibility that he might blow himself up before that happens!” Lu Bowen chimed in with a soft chuckle.
Of course, he was only joking. He didn’t mean anything by that.
Since they didn’t have any expectations for this battle, the disciples from the Bloody Massacre Path were rather relaxed.
The humiliation they felt didn’t go away, but the fact that they expected nothing naturally helped them calm down.
“Go ahead and make the first move!” Ke Linqi said faintly. “However, if you cannot handle this anymore, you can ask me to stop!”
Ke Linqi seemed to have great poise at this point in time. However, this was only because he felt certain of his victory.
Luo Yunyang was disgusted by Ke Linqi’s attitude. It seemed as though Ke Linqi disregarded him completely as a competitor.
“Thanks, the same goes for you. If you cannot handle this, you may also ask me to stop!” Luo Yunyang said. Deep inside, he felt a little annoyed. However, he remained calm and composed on the outside.
Ke Linqi stared blankly at Luo Yunyang for a moment before breaking into a faint smile. This lad was too young and immature to be saying this. Did he actually think that he would win the battle by saying a few bold words?
He found it funny that Luo Yunyang was talking big at such a crucial juncture. However, as he took note of Luo Yunyang, he sensed some sort of threat about him.
It was an instinctive threat!
This threatening sensation made Ke Linqi stay vigilant. He suddenly realized that the young man standing before him didn’t seem as weak as he had imagined.
When Luo Yunyang spoke, a blade appeared in his hand. The blade, which was blood-red, had the curvature of a crescent moon.
It was a blade familiar to every single disciple of the Bloody Massacre Path. One could purchase a blade like that at only a cost of five star dollars.
“Since you are unresigned, I will just have to teach you a lesson!” Ke Linqi said as he drew a long golden blade. The blade, which was about seven feet long, had lots of adornments and slightly resembled a pike.
“The Golden Sun Blade is a treasured weapon of choice for the Great Unrivaled Sun Path that is separated into 1,000 layered waves, or an ocean that forms a world…”
The Pure Sun Ruler’s face broke into a faint smile. Ke Linqi had definitely not disappointed him.
When Ke Linqi had first entered the arena, he had been worried that he would be too arrogant to allow the Bloody Massacre Path to save any face.
What they wanted was to browse through the Sky Book, not let their disciples engage in a life-and-death battle against the disciples of the Bloody Massacre Path. Furthermore, at that point in time, victory was already theirs.
Although there was still one last battle, from the Ruler’s point of view, victory was in the bag.
He had already instructed Ke Linqi to be courteous during the battle. However, he never would have expected that this young lad would use the Golden Sun Blade.
That… That would be giving them too much face!
When he glanced in the direction of the Blood Sky Ruler, he saw that he was smiling in a similar fashion. Obviously, the Blood Sky Ruler knew the capabilities of the Golden Sun Blade, as well as its significance.
“Senior Brother Ke Linqi is really going overboard!” Luochuan said unhappily. “The boss has already instructed us to be polite to our competitors. Doing this would totally cause us to lose their respect!”
Zuoshu kind of disliked Luochuan. Since the battle outcome wasn’t decided yet, it was useless to speak so much about it. In this case, there was no need to jump to conclusions.
However, he didn’t express any of his thoughts openly. Instead, he just said, “Things are not as simple as they seem!”
“Our boss might have just met a worthy opponent.”
“Ha ha ha! Are you kidding me, Zuoshu? How is that even possible? I have done a background check on that lad, and it turns out that he’s just a brat who entered the Blood Spirit Sky recently.”
“Even if Yang Shang was the opponent standing before us, he still would be no match for our boss!” Luochuan added disdainfully.
Zuoshu believed that it was pointless to keep reasoning with Luochuan. That chap was beyond redemption. Who was he to determine the outcome of a battle that hadn’t even started yet? Furthermore, judging by his courage to step forward and fight, Luo Yunyang definitely was no simple opponent.
Fools often spoke faster than they could think. Hence, Zuoshu did not react much to anything Luochuan said.
Luochuan could tell by Zuoshu’s reaction that the man disliked him. He secretly hated Zuoshu’s chilly attitude towards him, but dared not have a fight with Zuoshu.
“Take this!” Ke Linqi said with a wave of his blade. The large, mighty Golden Sun Blade exuded 1,000 golden rays that shot in Luo Yunyang’s direction!
This was a mystic art of the Great Unrivaled Sun Path that could only be unleashed by the Golden Sun Blade. This mystic art was called 1,000 Layered Waves.
The 1,000 Layered Waves was an encompassing move. Each layered wave got increasingly powerful. Thus, most opponents who fought against Ke Linqi knew that the moment this move was used, victory was more or less guaranteed.
Furthermore, when caught by 1,000 Layered Waves, struggling to get out was no easy task.
In the whole Blood Spirit Sky, perhaps only Yang Shang and Tie Wudi would be able to break free from the 1,000 Layered Waves. This move was so powerful that even someone as skilled as Wen Jingxuan might struggle to break out of it.
The moment that Luo Yunyang seemed to be completely surrounded by the 1,000 Layered Waves and about to be consumed, he waved the blood-red blade quickly.
A blade-light shot forward and headed towards the surging 1,000 layered golden lights.
“He’s overestimating himself. How is it possible for him to even deflect the 1,000 Layered Waves in a single move?” Luochuan said in contempt as he watched Luo Yunyang wield his blade.
He had always disliked Luo Yunyang. Thus, his words got even meaner when he saw Luo Yunyang wield that clumsy, blunt-looking blade.
However, before he could finish speaking, a black shadow started to appear within the golden rays. In the blink of an eye, numerous golden rays were enveloped by the revolving black shadow.
An explosive clanging sound rang out as a series of collisions occurred. Then, the black shadows and golden rays parted again.
Actually, it seemed more like the golden rays rushed out of the encirclement of the black shadows.
Both Luo Yunyang and Ke Linqi appeared on the stage again. Ke Linqi was still holding the dazzling Golden Sun Blade in his hands. However, there were droplets of blood dripping down the hand that wielded the blade.
Ke Linqi was injured!
There were frightened, panicked looks on everyone’s faces when they saw the droplets of blood. They never would have expected that someone as strong and powerful as Ke Linqi would actually get injured during a brawl like this.
Nobody had expected this!
However, the Blood Sky Ruler did not look impressed. He was able to feel the difference in terms of cultivation base between Luo Yunyang and Ke Linqi. He also believed that he knew what Luo Yunyang was like.
Luo Yunyang had only comprehended a small part of the Great Chaotic Hole Path. Thus, he was able to create some mystic arts based on it.
While these mystic arts had unexpectedly injured Ke Linqi, they still were no match for a top-tier entity like the Blood Sky Ruler himself.
“How is that possible? How can Ke Linqi be hurt?” Luochuan said as he watched in horror.
As far as Luochuan was concerned, Ke Linqi was invincible and second to none in terms of skill. Thus, it was just not possible for him to get defeated.
However, Ke Linqi had actually gotten injured this time. Furthermore, the person who had injured him was someone entirely unexpected!
Even Zuoshu, who was usually calm, had stood up unconsciously.
“He’s using the Great Chaotic Hole Path!” Zuoshu said confidently after scrutinizing Luo Yunyang.
“The Great Chaotic Hole Path? You guys are really trying!” the Pure Sun Ruler said indifferently.
The Blood Sky Ruler shook his head silently. He knew what the Pure Sun Ruler meant. Actually, he really hadn’t been that willing to let Luo Yunyang cultivate the Great Chaotic Hole Path. Learning it had been Luo Yunyang’s own choice.
“The Great Chaotic Hole Path? I would never have expected that there would still be people who are cultivating the Great Chaotic Hole Path in the Bloody Massacre Path.”
Ke Linqi continued to allow the blood to drip from his hands as his gaze remained focused on Luo Yunyang. The way he stared at him was similar to the way a hunter stared at his prey.
“I think it was a pity that I never got to witness the Great Hole Chaotic Path with my own eyes. I must admit that I am very lucky indeed to have been able to witness it here thanks to the Bloody Massacre Path.”
Ke Linqi shook his head as he added, “It is a pity, though, that your Great Hole Chaotic Path is still lacking a bit. Just a little more and you would have been able to break my 1,000 Layered Waves. However, you have already reached your limits when it comes to this move!”
“What a pity!”
“There’s nothing here to regret. Your Golden Sun Blade wasn’t fully unleashed either. How would you even know that this strike is all I can do?”
As Luo Yunyang kept staring at Ke Linqi, the crescent blade he was holding vibrated gently. “Your 1,000 Layered Waves wasn’t too bad, but now it’s your turn to experience my strike! This move is called Breaking Mountains And Rivers!”
As these words left Luo Yunyang’s mouth, his body flickered. The blade in his hands was instantly waved and black rays pressed forward.
The crowd of Bloody Massacre Path disciples was roused the moment everyone heard about the Breaking Mountains and Rivers.
Luo Yunyang had not lost yet. He didn’t just possess the basic technique of the Great Chaotic Hole Path. Besides the move he had just used, he also had some other tricks up his sleeve.
Perhaps Luo Yunyang wouldn’t just save the Bloody Massacre Path’s dignity. He certainly had a chance to get a draw, or even bag a victory against Ke Linqi!
Many pairs of excited eyes stared closely at Luo Yunyang’s every movement. Although his moves seemed ordinary right now, no one had ever seen before these variations of the Great Hole Chaotic Path. Hence, they kept staring excitedly as this sequence of events unfolded before their eyes.
Ke Linqi didn’t say anything. However, the moment Luo Yunyang was about to advance, the Golden Sun Blade in his hands flickered and transformed into a golden world.
This was the Self-Created World of the Golden Sun Blade!
