AST 1942 - Youth Wasted Without Acting Pompous
“Oldie Xia, you brought this young brother so high up that I want to try my luck up there,” A deep and sincere voice was suddenly heard.
Qing Shui followed the voice and saw a wild old man. Qing Shui knew who he was, the strong warrior of the Moonwolf Empire. It was as powerful as the Great Confucian Empire and seemed to be even greater now.
They came out, now everyone wanted a piece of the Great Confucian Empire.
The Old Ancestor laughed, “Sha Langfeng, think wisely, you are a man of honor. Yet, the title doesn’t count today, it would be shameful if you lose.”
“A warrior needs to be prepared to get defeated, it is fine to lose. Failure is not fearful; a failure can probably lead to a breakthrough,” Sha Langfeng said coldly.
Sha Langfeng was an elderly but he only looked slightly older than a normal middle-aged man. A man like this in the Main Continent was usually at his peak of cultivations. He would hardly achieve any other breakthrough even after a hundred years.
Hence, Sha Langfeng wished to make further progress. If he stayed stagnant, he would probably remain constant for the rest of his life.
The Old Ancestor of the Xia Clan returned to his seat. The situation was within his expectations, he still felt that Qing Shui was unpredictable and mysterious. Thus, he had a feeling that Qing Shui would bring a miracle. When he was coming down, he looked at Qing Shui with a smile.
Qing Shui glanced at the old man speechlessly, but he was not against it. Qing Shui was impressed by the old man, everything he did and his manner was very comforting. Besides, Qing Shui knew he would need the old man’s help in the future.
Though the old man had only a few years of life, Qing Shui could extend it for several tens of years. This was the limit, Qing Shui could not change one’s destiny despite his magnificent Art of Healing. The old man’s aging process was irreversible, but with Qing Shui’s Art of Healing, he could help the old man live for another ten of years.
It was long enough to do many things.
After all, Qing Shui was reluctant to stay forever and become the protective shield of the Great Confucian Empire. The Thirteenth Prince needed time to be strong, and with the presence of the old man, he could continue guarding the Great Confucian Empire and his friends.
Sha Langfeng walked in the direction of the Sacred Royal Stage. He was not too tall with just a slightly imposing stature which felt like a mountain. Apart from that, his entire body gave out a fierce and wild aura.
“Young man, I won’t hold back, the sword has no eyes, watch out!” said Sha Langfeng to Qing Shui in a cold and brutal tone.
Qing Shui nodded, “Come on!”
Sha Langfeng’s fighting spirit was rising rapidly like an exact substance.
Moonwolf Fighting Spirit!
Sha Langfeng belonged to the royal family of the Moonwolf Empire and had a very high position. Otherwise, he would not come to this kind of event. The royals of Moonwolf Empire obtained the inheritance from the Moonwolf Emperor. The people from the Sha Clan learned the inherited battle skills from the Moonwolf Emperor, it was a family inheritance. Only one would awaken the blood of the Moonwolf Emperor from the Sha Clan. Thus, he might not be the Great Moonwolf Emperor, but he surely had a royal inheritance.
Sha Langfeng was the strongest man in his generation besides the one who awakened the blood of Moonwolf Emperor.
Moonwolf Fighting Spirit increased the strength greatly. Besides, it also improved the speed, ability to break the defense, and the eyesight massively.
Qing Shui operated his battle skills instantly and increased his strength. The opponent was strong, and without the Immortal Dao Divine Origin, Qing Shui would never win over him. The previous defense was impressive enough, but Qing Shui could not guarantee that it could block the opponent’s attack.
Now, with his existing defense and the Parry Heavenly Fate Treasure Pagoda, Qing Shui was sure that the opponent could never break his own defense. At Sha Langfeng’s current level, Qing Shui was invincible.
Sha Langfeng had about 150 million Dao Force, the Parry Heavenly Fate Treasure Pagoda could block up to 200 million Dao Force…Let alone his total defensive power which was 300 million Dao Force.
Qing Shui did not take out any weapon.
“You don’t need a weapon?” Sha Langfeng frowned while asking the question with his swords in hands.
Sha Langfeng’s weapon was a Double Sword, two short swords which were simple and deadly. It was good at short distance attack, especially daunting for fast warriors.
“I will use it when I need it, no bad feelings, come on!” Qing Shui felt a bit pompous. However, Qing Shui felt alright to face Sha Langfeng like this. In the past life, there was a saying of ‘youth is wasted if one does not act pompous’. Though Qing Shui was no longer a teen, he was still young. In another ten years, he would not even have the desire to act…
“Take it then!”
Sha Langfeng appeared calm but he knew this young man had extraordinary strength. A great confidence came from one’s strength. Hence, Sha Langfeng acted more carefully and his fighting spirit boosted.
Sha Langfeng gave a loud growl, it was not thunderous and deafening, but it was so magical that it almost paused the time. Yet, it was in fact, disturbing one’s spirit energy instead of stopping the time. That slowed down the opponent’s response and subsequently hampered his judgment.
This was a powerful battle skill, if performed well, it could kill the target with a single hit. Plus, the Moonwolf Inheritor was naturally fast, he could destroy the target in the first encounter.
The legendary warrior who awakened the blood of Moonwolf Emperor practiced the Moonwolf Growl well enough to make the target dizzy. The time of effect depended on the target’s strength and resistance. It was a very terrifying ability. In the battlefield, one could get killed upon dizziness in the blink of an eye.
Every warrior, including warriors who trained their bodies, had different body constitutions. For example, though one trained his eyes so that he could block swords and knives with his eyelids, the same thing couldn’t be said for his chest. Not everyone owned the Parry Heavenly Fate Treasure Pagoda like Qing Shui, that item which enabled perfect barrier. No one would be able to harm Qing Shui physically even during sleep if the Parry Heavenly Fate Treasure Pagoda was not broken.
Qing Shui used the Heavenly Vision Technique. Thus, the opponent’s speed reduced at once.
It was not about being dependent on the skill but more about getting assistance from it. Qing Shui wanted to master the Heavenly Vision Technique so that he could apply it optimally the next time he met capable warriors. It was not dependence as long as it was his passive ability. Even for the Emperor’s Qi, Qing Shui could use it as a killer move. A technique like this was applied with consciousness regardless of the proficiency, an active type of ability. Hence, he would only apply it when necessary.
Qing Shui advanced with bare hands and performed the Taichi Fist!
Qing Shui struck on Sha Langfeng’s wrist with the Disheveled Wild Horse. The opponent had a quick response, he twisted his wrist immediately and aimed his sword at Qing Shui’s throat. Another hand swiped towards his eyes. Suddenly, a great volume of blood flashed over Qing Shui’s eyes.
