Chapter 708: The Unusual Change In Zi Shang
Translator: KurazyTolanzuraytor Editor: Jay
Of course, there were still many people that knew what fueling Fire Concept with Wind Concept meant.
Along with the discussions of the people that knew the facts, it wasn’t long before the entire Cage Battle Arena understood what fueling Fire Concept with Wind Concept meant. “So this fueling Fire Concept with Wind Concept is actually a skill, and one can rely on the might of Wind Force to improve the might of Fire Concept!”
“Zi Shang has actually comprehended a skill like this, it’s truly shocking.”
“According to the experts present, martial artists below the Void Interpretation Stage are rarely able to comprehend this sort of skill… Zi Shang is the first Void Initiation Stage martial artist they know of that was capable of comprehending this type of skill.”
“He’s worthy of being a young genius that’s recommended by the Imperial Family! Experts are really as numerous as the clouds in the Imperial Family… Not to mention that both the young geniuses that have made an appearance today are stronger than the Second Prince.”
Similar discussions entered completely into Bai He’s ears, causing his body to start trembling, and his fists had unconsciously been tightly clenched together.
“Zi Shang!” Bai He gnashed his teeth as cold lights flickered within his eyes.
Bai Hao was stronger than him, and he could only admit it.
But Zi Shang who was someone of lowly birth in his eyes had actually trampled on him, so how could he endure this?
In the sky above the Cage Battle Arena, Zi Shang and Bai Hao attacked once more, and the situation of the battle was extremely intense.
In terms of strength, if Zi Shang didn’t use his technique of fueling Fire Concept with Wind Concept, he was inferior to Bai Hao, but once he utilized that technique, he completely surpassed Bai Hao.
Of course, his technique of fueling Fire Concept with Wind Concept required a certain amount of time to accumulate strength, and it was precisely because of this that Bai Hao was able to grab the opportunity to try his best to suppress Zi Shang and not allow Zi Shang to willfully increase the might of his Fire Concept.
With Zi Shang’s current strength, he was at most capable of increase his Fire Concept by two levels.
But now, every time he increased it by a single level, he wouldn’t be in time to continue making it increase as he would become entangled with Bai Hao, causing him to utterly not be able to increase his Fire Concept by two levels.
After increasing his Fire Concept by a single level, his strength was only equal to Bai Hao, and coupled with them being on par in terms of combat experiences and martial skill, the battle had temporarily come to a tie.
Suddenly, Duan Ling Tian left the sky above the Cage Battle Arena and returned to the second-class spectating area where the members of the Darkstone Empire were seater, and he sat back by Su Li’s side.
“Duan Ling Tian, who do you think will win?” Su Li couldn’t refrain from asking when he saw Duan Ling Tian return.
“I don’t know.” Duan Ling Tian shook his head and said truthfully, “Based on the current circumstances, so long as Bai Hao doesn’t give Zi Shang the chance to increase his Fire Concept by two levels, it would be very unlikely that Zi Shang would be capable of defeating him.”
“Whereas if he gave Zi Shang the chance, or perhaps if Zi Shang grabbed onto an opportunity to increase his Fire Concept by two levels in one go, then it wouldn’t be impossible for Zi Shang to defeat Bai Hao.” Duan Ling Tian finished speaking in a single breath.
Su Li nodded with understanding as he felt this way as well.
Clang! Clang! Clang! Clang! Clang!
Zi Shang held the zither with one hand as Origin Energy that was followed by Fire Concept and Wind Concept raged on his other hand, and it ceaselessly descended onto the zither strings to resound with a wave of ear piercing zither sounds.
At the same time, numerous attacks that were like flame wheels ceaselessly swept toward Bai Hao.
Bang! Bang! Bang! Bang! Bang!
When faced with Zi Shang’s repeated attacks, Bai Hao wasn’t willing to show weakness, and the spirit spear in his hand was raised and smashed down repeatedly like a spirit rod, and it successively smashed Zi Shang’s attacks into dispersal.
He didn’t dare dally in the slightest bit as he knew that once he gave Zi Shang an opportunity to take advantage of, he would lose for sure.
In the sky above the Cage Battle Arena, the situation of the battle was intense, and it caused the spectating crowd to be bedazzled.
“I truly never imagined that the former member of the five great young masters of the Azure Forest Imperial Kingdom, Zither Young Master, would actually possesses such a formidable strength now… I wonder exactly what fortuitous encounter he obtained?” Su Li had a complicated gaze as he lightly sighed.
Su Li’s words arouse the resonance of Duan Ling Tian and Long Yun. Both of them were from the Azure Forest Imperial Kingdom like Zi Shang, and both of them had some relationship with Zi Shang.
So they felt it even more deeply.
“Hmm?” Duan Ling Tian who was originally silently watching the battle suddenly noticed that his Spatial Ring was lightly trembling, and even though the trembling’s frequency wasn’t high, he was still able to sense it clearly.
“What’s going on?” Duan Ling Tian thought in his heart as his mind entered within the Spatial Ring.
Instantly, the events within the space of his Spatial Ring caused him to be unable to refrain from being stunned.
He noticed that the Devilseal Tablet that was originally silently placed idly at the side had suddenly seemed as if it had gone mad, and it ceaselessly knocked against the space within his Spatial Ring.
The things in the space within his Spatial Ring were in a complete mess from being knocked around by it, and everything was scattered around as if his Spatial Ring had become a rubbish dump.
“This is…” At the same time that Duan Ling Tian’s expression froze, he couldn’t help but recall that at yesterday morning, the space within his Spatial Ring had suffered an inexplainable ‘attack,’ causing the things within his Spatial Ring to be in disorder and scattered all over.
At that time, he didn’t know what had happened, whereas, he understood completely now, and it turned out that it was the Devilseal Tablet that did it.
“What exactly is going on?” Duan Ling Tian was completely ill at ease when encountering something like this as there was utterly no similar records within the memories of the Rebirth Martial Emperor.
Logically speaking, the space within a Spatial Ring was only capable of storing things that didn’t possess life. This was an iron law within the Cloud Continent, whereas the Devilseal Tablet was something without a life, as the soul within it had already been exterminated all those years ago. So logically speaking, it would be impossible for it to contain life.
But now, the unusual movements of the Devilseal Tablet caused Duan Ling Tian to be slightly perplexed. “Based on the actions of the Devilseal Tablet, it seems to want to charge out of my Spatial Ring?”
But even though the movements of the Devilseal Tablet were forceful, it was incapable of shaking the space within the Spatial Ring.
The solidity of the space within the Spatial Ring was unimaginable.
At this moment, Duan Ling Tian even had the desire to let the Devilseal Tablet out.
But practically at the exact same time, his intuition told him that if he let the Devilseal Tablet out, it would absolutely not be a good thing.
So he endured his desire.
“Wait… There’s surely a reason why the Devilseal Tablet would be like this!” Duan Ling Tian took a deep breath as he came back to his senses, and his gaze descended onto the two people that were fighting intensely in the sky.
With just a glance, he noticed that something was off.
“Between Zi Shang’s brows…” Duan Ling Tian noticed that a small black dot had appeared between Zi Shang’s brows at this moment.
The small black dot was ceaselessly enlarging, and it seemed as if it was taking root and growing.
“What’s that?” Duan Ling Tian was dumbstruck as he gazed at the space between Zi Shang’s brows.
Meanwhile, he noticed the commotion made by the Devilseal Tablet in his Spatial Ring had become greater. “Could it be that the unusual actions of the Devilseal Tablet are related to the small black dot that’s ceaselessly enlarging between Zi Shang’s brows?” When he thought up to here, Duan Ling Tian felt that it was slightly unbelievable.
Even during his two lifetimes, the Rebirth Martial Emperor had never encountered such a strange thing, yet he’d actually encountered such a strange thing now.
Could it be that the small black dot that has appeared between ZI Shang’s brows is related to the Devilseal Tablet?” Now, Duan Ling Tian could only think like this, but even after thinking for a long time, he still couldn’t wrap his head around it.
“Look, quickly! There seems to be something between Zi Shang’s brows.”
“That’s a black colored flame brand. No! I remember that there wasn’t such a brand between Zi Shang’s brows earlier.”
“I still remember that there was no such brand between Zi Shang’s brows earlier… What exactly is going on?”
A wave of confusion arose in the Cage Battle Arena as they were shocked by the peculiar scene before them.
A brand appearing out of nowhere on a person’s face, and it was even an obvious brand caused others to feel a chill run down their spines and their scalps go numb.
At this moment, even the Feng Clan’s Eldest Master, Feng Wu Dao, the Emperor, and the black clothed old man by the Emperor’s side, unconsciously became tensed and extremely serious.
Because the scene before their eyes caused them to feel astonishment.
“That small black dot has become a black colored flame brand in the blink of an eye?” After the small black dot appeared between Zi Shang’s brows, Duan Ling Tian’s gaze had never left it, and he clearly saw the changes between Zi Shang’s brows.
“The Devilseal Tablet seems to have gone into a greater frenzy…” Duan Ling Tian noticed that after the small black dot between Zi Shang’s brows became a flame brand, the Devilseal Tablet within his Spatial Ring seemed as if it had gone mad and madly collided all around the space within his Spatial Ring.
If it wasn’t for the space within his Spatial Ring being sufficiently solid, it would have probably knocked a hole open long ago.
“What exactly is the flame brand between Zi Shang’s brows? Why is it able…?” Duan Ling Tian thought in his heart, but his thoughts hadn’t finished revolving when his pupils couldn’t help but constrict, and his face was covered in astonishment as if he’d seen something terrifying.
At the exact same time, Zi Shang who was in the sky above the Cage Battle Arena and had a flame brand appear between his brows had put down the zither in his left hand before his right hand suddenly formed into a fist.
No one noticed that at this moment, Zi Shang’s eyes had dimmed down slightly.
Subsequently, he stepped out slightly stiffly, and it was this step that caused him to vanish before the eyes of everyone. In the next moment, he’d already arrived behind Bai Hao, causing Bai Hao to be unable to react in the slightest towards all this.
At the same time, Zi Shang’s fist smashed out, and he didn’t even rely on the amplification of his spirit weapon to smash his fish towards Bai Hao.
Everywhere his bare fist passed, the sounds of air exploding rose and fell, and the airflow in the sky seemed to have been completely extracted.
The might of his punch shook the heavens!
“Stay your hand!” The Emperor’s face went grim as he shouted out in alarm.
The two old men in the sky above the Cage Battle Arena had reacted as well, and the moved out with the intention of stopping Zi Shang.
Even though they didn’t know what had happened to Zi Shang, but the strength that was contained on Zi Shang’s fist caused them to fear from the bottom of their hearts.
At this instant, Zi Shang wasn’t a Void Initiation Stage martial artist in their eyes, but an existence that wasn’t inferior to them.
The two old men flashed out and pounced towards Zi Shang.
But unfortunately, their speeds were fast, yet Zi Shang was faster, and his fist blasted with out with terrifying strength that raged and skyrocketed as it smashed towards Bai Hao without holding back in the slightest.
Bai Hao’s expression instantly went pale when he heard the sound of something tearing through the sky behind him.
Never had he imagined that Zi Shang’s strength would increase so greatly in an instant, and Zi Shang had actually arrived behind him right under his very eyes.
