AST 1810 - Spar
Qing Shui thought that it might be because of this matter that caused Huo Feng to fall for Shen Huang. In addition, from his observations earlier, Qing Shui knew that this love might not be the love between males and females, but was rather that of kinship oenixinstead.
Upon thinking of this, Qing Shui couldn’t help but continue surveying Huo Feng. This person seemed normal but Qing Shui always felt that there was a trace of sinisterness in his eyes.
“Do it. If not, you will definitely lose. I will give you the chance to attack.” Huo Feng stepped out and spoke to Qing Shui while Jin Feng watched from afar.
Qing Shui nodded his head. He had around 3 million Dao of resist strength and was able to instantly use 2 million Dao’s worth of destructive strength. However, he didn’t wish to injure them.
The more he looked, the more he felt that there was something wrong with this man. Maybe, that man was crazy. This wasn’t mercy to enemies. Neither way, Qing Shui would still be careful. With his current strength, the two shouldn’t face any danger as long as he doesn’t use paragon strike.
Qing Shui took out his golden battle halberd but he didn’t weaken his opponents’ strength or speed. After that, he directly used the Nine Palace Steps and dashed his way over.
A simple move, but right now Qing Shui’s strength wasn’t weak. Even if Huo Feng fought with Qing Shui, he wouldn’t gain any advantages.
The moment Qing Shui moved, both Huo Feng and Jin Feng were caught off-guard. They must have noticed that the young man before them definitely had strength that wasn’t inferior to them at all.
If they had known that Qing Shui had such an overwhelming defense and that instant violent strike, they would never have dared to seek for a spar against Qing Shui. One must know that 2 million dao strength might cripple them and if Qing Shui’s attack were to strike against their crucial parts, they might even die.
Behind Huo Feng, a pair of red wings appeared. The wings were very large, over ten meters and yet, there were surprisingly agile. Huo Feng’s speed instantly increased many times as a fire phoenix sword shot toward Qing Shui.
Qing Shui didn’t pay attention to the sword but he knew it was not a simple one for sure. There was a vivid and lifelike engraving of a red phoenix on the sword and it was able to emit fearsome fiery energy.
Fire Phoenix slash!
A torrent of flame spewed out, instantly manifesting into a fiery phoenix that shot towards Qing Shui, locking onto him.
Although its speed wasn’t fast, the aura of the attack continued to increase. However, Huo Feng had no idea that Qing Shui could disregard 70% of spirit energy attacks, not to mention he also had a high resistance towards fire.
The attack was extremely powerful, but that was because he purely infused his spirit energy into the fire-based attack. Qing Shui dashed right past the manifestation of fire phoenix as his golden battle halberd stabbed out.
When Huo Feng saw Qing Shui barging through his attack with no injuries, he swung his sword outward to meet with the halberd.
Qing Shui’s technique was extraordinary because he had cultivated Taichi and his defense was impervious to most things. Although his strength was roughly the same as his opponent, he was able to hold his ground due to his defense.
Qing Shui would only retreat if his opponent’s strength was much greater than him. Therefore, when Qing Shui discovered that the difference between their strengths was only roughly 10,000 Daos, he was able to clash against Huo Feng in quite a relaxed manner. This was the benefits of being proficient in Taichi.
Jin Feng was extremely shocked. An indescribable light gleamed in his eyes, radiating sharpness. He unconsciously clutched the golden sword in his hand, as if he was making a decision.
However, at this moment, his heart pounded when he sensed a familiar aura. His gaze returned to normal and a smile appeared on his face.
Since the beginning, Qing Shui had already noticed that aura. His spiritual sense was very mystical, as though it had a will of its own. He knew that the aura belonged to Shen Huang. She was just hiding nearby. Qing Shui was very happy with her appearance, as that meant she was worried about him.
She was worried that he would come to harm and would die so soon after joining the Phoenix God Organization. She didn’t appear earlier because she wanted to know what Qing Shui was capable of.
Qing Shui didn’t really attack. He just defended. Instead, it was Huo Feng who became more and more flustered when he couldn’t defeat Qing Shui despite spending such a long time. His attacks grew sharper and sharper.
“I’m going to use my killing technique. You better be careful.” Huo Feng said to Qing Shui.
At this moment, Qing Shui felt a little joy because Huo Feng still warned him in advance. He believed that the personality of this man wasn’t bad. He nodded his head, “Bring it on!”
“Stay your hand! Do you really need to see blood in a spar?” Shen Huang’s voice rang out as she appeared between Qing Shui and Huo Feng.
The unique rhythm of her voice made Qing Shui extremely comfortable. He didn’t expect the voice of this woman would be so soul-stirring.
Huo Feng was very obedient to Shen Huang. He instantly stopped and looked at Shen Huang in shock, “Huang`er, when did you arrive?”
Shen Huang glanced at them and spoke, “What are you all doing? Did you forget what I had told you before?”
Huo Feng stuttered, glancing at Shen Huang and then towards Jin Feng.
“Huang`er, it’s I who told Huo Feng to come with me. Don’t be angry. I just wanted to take a look at Mister Qing, this dragon among humans, wishing to recruit him.” Jin Feng answered.
Qing Shui didn’t feel weird with regards to the interactions among the three. It seemed like their relationship truly wasn’t bad but now, Qing Shui could be sure that Huo Feng was a little crazy.
Shen Huang didn’t seem to be very interested in Jin Feng, not even glancing at him as she spoke, “I do not wish for the matter today to happen again. If not, we will be enemies from now on.”
“Huang`er, don’t worry. It definitely won't happen again. I will listen to you.” Jin Feng hurriedly said.
He had a very masculine look but with that current expression and tone, he looked like Guo Jing from the Condor Heroes (a popular wuxia novel) in Qing Shui’s previous world, seemingly very honest and simple.
Shen Huang’s eyes flashed with a trace of reluctance but didn’t say anything.
Although Jin Feng still had a smile on his face, his gaze was different. A cold smile could be seen in his eyes. As he stared at Shen Huang, corrupted thoughts filled his mind
Qing Shui had noticed Jin Feng’s expression. He then looked at Shen Huang before saying, “Thank you!”
