Chapter 703: Fire Drawing Assistance From The Might Of Wind
Translator: KurazyTolanzuraytor Editor: Jay
Practically the instant the enormous clang resounded out, the eardrums of many people in the surroundings of the Cage Battle Arena split open, and some spectators with low cultivations that were unprepared even bled from their seven apertures and were in extremely sorry states.
“Luckily, I was prepared this time.” Many people had hurriedly stretched out their hands to cover their ears when they saw Zi Shang take out the zither, and when they saw many people in their surroundings bleeding from all seven apertures, their hearts were filled with a feeling of being fortunate.
Along with Zi Shang’s palm slapping onto the row of zither strings on the face of the zither, an enormous clang resounded.
With the center of his palm as the center, an energy that was terrifying to the extreme instantly swept out in all directions, and it was a formidable area attack that he’d executed by combining the zither in his hand with his Origin Energy and Concept.
Besides carrying raging milky white Origin Energy, the extremely terrifying energy contained strands of azure energy and red colored energy mixed within.
The red colored energy raged and skyrocketed more and more intensely, and it was actually raising by itself by relying on the azure energy.
“Fire drawing assistance from wind!” The sudden scene before his eyes caused Duan Ling Tian to be unable to help but be shocked.
Subsequently, Duan Ling Tian noticed that along with Zi Shang’s palm descending onto the zither, before the phenomenon of heaven and earth could condense into form, Zi Shang had actually directly put away the zither in the blink of an eye, whereas, the Origin Energy vortex that revolved ceaselessly at the center of his palm and contained Wind Concept and Fire Concept had vanished along with the disappearance of the zither.
In the sky, the phenomenon of heaven and earth that hadn’t had the chance to condense had instantly dispersed.
Instantly, only a single thought remained in Duan Ling Tian’s mind.
“He wouldn’t be thinking that this strike of his was sufficient to defeat Bai He, right?” Duan Ling Tian’s heart jerked as an insane thought arose in his mind.
In next to no time, Duan Ling Tian realized that he’d guessed correctly.
The energy that had swept out into the surroundings after Zi Shang’s palm descended onto the zither, had formed into an Origin Energy vortex that revolved ceaselessly as well, and combined with the azure and red energies, it seemed like a swiftly revolving wheel of fire and wind.
Within the Origin Energy vortex, the red colored energy swiftly grew under the supply of energy from the azure colored energy.
Along with the growth of the red energy, the strength contained within the Origin Energy vortex grew stronger and stronger, and it wasn’t the slightest bit affected by Zi Shang’s lack of further action.
Bang! Bang! Bang! Bang! Bang!
The Origin Energy vortex spread out ceaselessly and carried the might of fire and wind as it suddenly shot out, causing a wave of deafening explosions of the air to resound out in the sky.
It wasn’t just that, besides the single sword light that was closest to Bai He, all of the other 9 sword lights that were condensed from the three foot long blade in Bai He’s hand were shattered by the Origin Energy vortex.
After the Origin Energy vortex shattered the nine sword lights, it didn’t lose momentum in the slightest as it continued to sweep out in all directions and envelop Bai He.
Another enormous bang sounded out, and Bai He and his sword were swept into the Origin Energy vortex.
At this moment, even if Bai He mobilized all the Origin Energy within his body in time, it would still be difficult for him to resist the Origin Energy vortex.
Under the gazes of everyone present, the spirit sword in Bai He’s hand was very quickly swept flying by the Origin Energy vortex, and it fell onto the Cage Battle Arena, whereas, Bai He himself was instead carried along by the Origin Energy vortex to take a few tens of spins, shaking him to the point his countenance was ghastly pale and blood sprayed from his mouth. If this were to continue, he would obviously die.
Right at this moment, the two old men that presided over the martial competition moved at the same time.
One of them saved Bai He, while the other obliterated the Origin Energy vortex with a raise of his hand.
Even then, the Origin Energy vortex still carried along a wave of violent winds that swept out towards all direction, and it caused the clothes of most people to flutter.
At this moment, only the sound of Bai He breathing heavily and the whistling sound of the violent winds remained…
Numerous gazes descended in unison onto the white clothed young man in the central area of the sky above the Cage Battle Arena.
Since the beginning until the end, the white clothed young man hadn’t moved in the slightest, and he stood there unmoving like a mount, with an expression that seemed like it wouldn’t change even if Mt. Tai collapsed before him.
“Second Prince has lost just like this?” The spectators in the surroundings of the Cage Battle Arena successively recovered from their shock, and all of them revealed astonishment and felt it was difficult to believe that everything they saw earlier was real.
Some people even felt they were dreaming.
But when they stretched out their hands to fiercely pinch their own thighs, the pain they felt seemed to tell them that they weren’t dreaming.
“Zi Shang is victorious!” Along with the old man in the sky above the Cage Battle Arena speaking out, the outcome of the battle had appeared.
Meanwhile, everyone was jolted awake from their shock.
“Too terrifying! Zi Shang is too terrifying!”
“He isn’t just terrifying, he’s simply abnormal! It was nothing when he killed that Darkmoon Sect’s Head Disciple before the phenomenon of the heaven and earth could condense into form. After all, his opponent was only an eighth level Void Initiation Stage martial artist. But earlier…”
“Earlier, when facing the Second Prince, one of the three publicly acknowledged strongest young experts of the Darkhan Dynasty’s younger generation, he actually defeated his opponent with a single move! Moreover, the phenomenon of heaven and earth didn’t even have the time to condense into form.”
“As the saying goes, dogs bite…. Looks like these words aren’t the slightest bit mistaken!”
The entire Cage Battle Arena was in an uproar because Zi Shang had defeated Bai He with a single move.
The faces of many people had even flushed red, and they were extremely excited.
It was as if the one that defeated the Second Prince wasn’t Zi Shang but them instead.
“This…” In the first-class spectating area that belonged to the Imperial Family, the black clothed old man was completely stunned.
Zi Shang was his personal disciple, and logically speaking, no one would understand Zi Shang better than he did.
But now, the skill Zi Shang revealed had instead caused him to feel unfamiliarity.
Especially the Origin Energy vortex that appeared as Zi Shang raised his hand, it was obviously an extremely formidable martial skill, yet he’d never seen or heard of this martial skill before.
The Emperor who sat by the old man’s side couldn’t help but gasp.
“Zi Shang is actually so strong?”
“Perhaps Zi Shang’s strength is even equal to Bai Hao…” When he recalled the scene from before, the Emperor couldn’t help but be shocked in his heart.
At this moment, the Emperor didn’t feel the slightest bit of displeasure because Zi Shang had defeated his son.
As far as he was concerned, it was a good thing for both him and the Imperial Family that a young genius that was stronger than his son was able to appear in the Imperial Family.
This meant that the members of the Imperial Family had the chance to go further on the stage that was the Martial Competition of the Ten Dynasties.
At the beginning, the Emperor had a disappointed expression when he glanced at the distant Bai He who had a ghastly pale countenance.
Subsequently, the Emperor seemed to have thought of something, and he started to laugh heartily.
“Hahahaha… Zi Shang, you’ve done well. Your strength has really give me a pleasant surprise! Let’s not talk about your reward for the ranking battles. I’ll decide now that after the Dynasty Martial Competition ends, no matter how your ranking is, I’ll give you an extra 10,000 low grade Origin Stones!” The Emperors words had suppressed all the clamorous voices in the Cage Battle Arena, and it clearly spread throughout the entire Cage Battle Arena.
For a time, the Cage Battle Arena was deathly silent, and only the Emperor’s laughter remained.
10,000 low grade Origin Stones?
Numerous burning gazes firmly locked onto Zi Shang from the surroundings of the Cage Battle Arena, and they wished for nothing more than to take his place.
“As expected of our Darkhan Dynast’s Emperor! Not only does he not feel ashamed and angered from the Second Prince being defeated, he’s still rewarding the person that defeated the Second Prince.”
“His Majesty is wise, long live his Majesty!”
In next to no time, many spectators in the surroundings of the Cage Battle Arena weren’t the slightest bit stingy with their words of praise to the Emperor.
“Thank you, your Majesty!” After Zi Shang heard the Emperor, he was slightly shocked, and he hurriedly expressed his gratitude after recovering from his shock.
Originally, even though he was mentally prepared to defeat the Second Prince today, he was slightly worried about the Emperor’s attitude…
After all, the Second Prince was the biological son of the Emperor, whereas he was only an outsider.
Now it would seem that he’d overthought things.
If it was said that whose expression was the most unsightly right now, then it would undoubtedly be the Second prince, Bai He.
After being defeated by Zi Shang, Bai He felt ashamed and wished for nothing more than to dig a hole in the sky to conceal himself.
To think that he, the dignified Second Prince of the Darkhan Dynasty, one of the three great young experts of the Darkhan Dynasty’s younger generation had actually lost at the hands of person of lowly birth, how could he endure this?
Most importantly, he’d used voice transmission to shame and provoke Zi Shang on many occasions earlier.
At this moment, he felt that everything he did earlier was like himself slapping his own face.
Now, Zi Shang is probably bursting with laughter in his heart, right?
Unconsciously, Bai He’s body started to lightly tremble, and he was furious to the limit, yet just happened to be unable to do anything.
“How can Zi Shang possible possess such strong strength is such a short period of time?” But, at the same time that Bai He felt fearful towards the strength Zi Shang revealed, his heart was filled with envy. “Exactly what fortuitous encounter did he obtain…? Why wasn’t it me that obtained that fortuitous encounter?!”
As far as Bai He was concerned, if he obtained the fortuitous encounter Zi Shang obtained, then perhaps he’d have already broken through to the Void Interpretation Stage now.
He hated! He envied!
Unlike Bai He’s hate and envy, Duan Ling Tian’s eyes lightly narrowed as he looked at Zi Shang. “I truly never imagined that Zi Shang possessed such a formidable strength now… Especially his comprehension of Wind Concept and Fire Concept can be said to be at the highest level.”
As the saying goes, while amateurs watched the show, the experts watched the skill involved.
Earlier, ordinary martial artists were utterly unable to notice the Fire Concept that was still ceaselessly growing after Zi Shang put away the zither, but Duan Ling Tian had seen it clearly.
“Fire drawing assistance from the might of wind, and it grows stronger and stronger… This is basic common sense. Yet very few martial artists are really capable of comprehending Fire and Wind Concept and using Wind Concept to drive the growth of Fire Concept.” This was something that Duan Ling Tian was extremely clear about from the memories of the Rebirth Martial Emperor.
“Supposedly, if the method of allowing using wind to drive the growth of fire was used well, it was even possible to use Wind Concept to increase the Fire Concept’s level while in battle!” Duan Ling Tian was extremely sure that when Zi Shang attacked, the Fire Concept had surely been improved quite a bit by the Wind Concept.
Otherwise, it would be impossible for it to so straightforwardly defeat Bai He.
“Besides that, the martial skill Zi Shang executed earlier isn’t ordinary…” Needless to say, after Zi Shang defeated Bai He with a single move, Duan Ling Tian had looked slightly more highly upon Zi Shang.
