iwen’s eyes had turned ice-cold. Chi Tian was indeed very strong. He was a well-known figure among the heaven’s pride experts. He was powerful-enough to be ranked as a top expert among his peers. So, Ye Xiwen was extremely glad that this man had considered him as a ‘whetstone’ for honing skills.
Ye Xiwen’s golden divinities began to seethe upon his golden body. His golden divine clothes seemed as if they had begun to boil. The golden divine waves under his feet set-off a huge tidal wave. Ye Xiwen raised the tip of his long sword, and coldly looked at Chi Tian.
"Bang!" Chi Tian moved. His mount looked towards the sky, and roared loudly. Its four hooves touched the ground, and the space began to tremble. It seemed as if the sky would collapse and fall onto the Earth. He rushed forward. His lance was pointed at Ye Xiwen.
Chi Tian arrived in front of Ye Xiwen within the blink of an eye. He swept out his lance; the weapon was even longer than Ye Xiwen’s height. It seemed as if it would stab Ye Xiwen to death the very next second.
However, Ye Xiwen finally moved at this time, and brandished his long sword.
"Clang!" a huge explosive sound of the collision of iron and gold metals sounded. The tip of the sword collided with the point of the lance. These two men looked like two formidable gods fighting on the earth. Both of them retreated several steps under the impact of the terrifying force. The space under their feet broke into pieces as they retreated. And, a loud rumbling sound echoed.
Their murderous auras overflowed the sky. Their attack-power had dropped significantly from the time they had begun their fight. However, their movements were still astonishingly fast. They would use hundreds of moves against each other within a split second. The speed of their movements was comparable to that of lightning piercing the atmosphere.
The complementary waves of their fight had bulldozed countless mountains. Their battle had been nothing short of an enormous disaster for this microcosm. In fact, the entire microcosm would soon get smash into pieces if they weren’t careful.
Everyone was scared; especially the experts of the younger generation. They found themselves merely mediocre after having watched a fight of this level. Such fighting strength was enough to place them right under the sage realm. However, the younger spectators had merely cultivated for a few years. They were nothing in front of these two experts.
The ferocious fight between these two men suddenly came to a halt! The lance was trembling in Chi Tian’s hand. A terrified look flashed in his eyes. He had fought many people. However, he had become invincible ever since he had practiced the Barbarian God’s Real Body. So, most people didn’t dare to fight with him. And, he had killed his opponents in one move even if anyone had dared to challenge him. However, nobody had dared to fight with him the way Ye Xiwen had…
He suddenly recalled that the Titan Body had died at the hands of Ye Xiwen. He hadn’t believed this rumor at first. However, he was finally somewhat convinced that Ye Xiwen could’ve well killed the Titan Body. After all, so many people wouldn’t maliciously spread such kind of news if it were false…
[Damn that rumor!]
Chi Tian cursed. He had never doubted Ye Xiwen’s fighting strength. However, he hadn’t believed that Ye Xiwen would possess enough fighting strength to contend against him.
After all, most physiques were inborn. And, perhaps many other special physiques had been created with the help of systematic methods like Chi Tian’s. However, Ye Xiwen’s physique wasn’t innate. He had cultivated it on his own since he used to be a Houtian expert. Moreover, it used to be an incomplete power technique back then. It was a high-ranked technique that had been created by an ancient powerhouse, but a massive amount of energy must be required to cultivate such physique. He would obviously know this fact because his own physique was acquired; not innate. But, how did Ye Xiwen cultivate his physique on his own?
What was more terrifying was the fact that he found himself getting suppressed by Ye Xiwen to some extent…
"Clang!" the sound of metallic vibrations spread in the sky. The energy soared to the clouds. Ye Xiwen didn’t give Chi Tian any chance to respite, and his long sword immediately swept down towards Chi Tian to crush him.
These two men had started to resort to extreme methods. They had basically gone all out. It seemed as if each one of their attacks was aimed to kill. There was nothing fancy about these attacks.
The long sword in Ye Xiwen’s hand wasn’t brandishing extraordinary sword moves. It was only unleashing basic sword moves. However, Ye Xiwen’s hands possessed incredible might, and it seemed as this might was enough to destroy the Heaven and extinguish the Earth. He then went towards Chi Tian with such incredible power in an attack.
"Clang!" Chi Tian had no choice but to move forward to face the attack. He couldn’t afford to show any weakness at this time. He was guessing that Ye Xiwen would soon get exhausted, and wouldn’t be able to continue thereafter. But, he wasn’t up for this kind of a fierce struggle at the risk of one’s life. So, he would by no means believe that Ye Xiwen was actually feeling more at ease.
Both sides went all-out. They didn’t use any fancy and gorgeous attacks. It was a collision of sheer powers. No fancy means would last in front of such brute power.
Ye Xiwen and Chi Tian were habitual of suppressing their opponents. They would allow their opponents to use a thousand techniques. However, they would use only one move to crush the opponent. It didn’t matter whether their opponent could take their move or not. In fact, an opponent would still fall into their routine if the-said individual was able to take their move. However, the opponent would get killed if they couldn’t take that one strike.
There was no other way!
"Bang!" the two collided once again. Their figures interlocked in midair, and blood splashed out.
Everyone stared with eyes wide opened. Who had gotten injured?
Everyone was secretly guessing. Who had gotten injured? Chi Tian appeared rather tall when he was seated on his Barbarian Beast. And, the beast was even bigger than him. In fact, they looked like a small mountain. Ye Xiwen was slim in contrast. However, he had given a tough fight to Chi Tian. And, his body was also extremely tyrannical.
Both these men possessed iron-like bodies. So, who among these two had gotten injured?
The movements of these two men had been lightning fast. Most people hadn’t been able to track their movements as a result. They had only seen the blood splashing out. So, it was hard to tell who had gotten injured…
The two men broke the interlock, and staggered away from each other. The wind blew, and carried a faint smell of blood with it. The tall body of Chi Tian was still seated atop that Barbarian Beast. But, it was shaking, and blood was gushing out of his body. Ye Xiwen had opened a huge wound in his chest. In fact, that wound was so deep that even his bones were clearly visible through it.
Countless people had opened their eyes wide to see this scene. They didn’t even blink. Everyone had been more optimistic about Chi Tian before the fight had started. But, they didn’t know much about Ye Xiwen’s situation. Chi Tian’s Barbarian God’s Real Body had become famous countless years ago. This had left them to have more confidence in Chi Tian. So, Chi Tian’s victory would be a normal scenario in their eyes.
In fact, several people had bestowed blind trust in Chi Tian. They had felt that he’d kill Ye Xiwen with a bang.
However, the first person to get injured wasn’t Ye Xiwen. It had turned out to be Chi Tian! This had left everyone extremely amazed.
"Chi Tian has sustained injury. How’s this possible?" countless people exclaimed with doubts in their hearts. The disciples of the Fire Cloud Cave especially couldn’t believe their eyes as they saw this scene unfold. They had been very confident in Chi Tian’s abilities. These disciples of the Fire Cloud Cave had seen his might before. He was considered as a top-notch expert in the younger generation of the Fire Cloud Cave. In fact, he had subdued the other heaven’s pride experts in his sect to earn the big opportunity of participating in this competition.
Chi Tian was the only major contestant to participate in this competition from the Fire Cloud Cave’s side. The first reason behind this was the heavy losses that the Fire Cloud Cave had suffered after they had come under the joint attack of the Hundred Barbarians Cave and Devil Worship Cult. And, the second reason was because he had suppressed the other heaven’s pride experts.
This was also the usual practice for the southern barbarians. Only the most outstanding disciples could have the Barbarian God’s Real Body among the many disciples. And, only the most talented one among them would be trained to cultivate it to the fullest.
Chi Tian had participated in this competition to win the championship. He didn’t know that he would bump into Emperor Chen and Xuan Yuan Twin Stars here, and would end-up being ranked third favourite. And now, he had become the first one to get wounded in his fight against Ye Xiwen.
[My god, how could there be so many evil geniuses!]
