When Fang Zhengzhi connected that to the fact that the disciples of Ling Yun Tower repeatedly shouted at each other to keep calm and stay undistracted, he finally understood what was happening.
It was distraction!
The disciples of Ling Yun Tower seemed to be distracted when he was spouting nonsense and singing. The distraction was the cause to their injuries.
“That’s wrong! They didn’t injure themselves… They were injured by their fellow disciples!”
Fang Zhengzhi’s eyes lit up when he realized that. He seemed to have finally understood what was going on as he looked over at the disciples on the ground again.
They managed to synchronize their Dao techniques by employing a strange but special mechanism so as to increase their combat strength exponentially.
However, in order to achieve that, they had to be extremely calm and needed to fulfill a certain condition.
In other words, if the disciples of Ling Yun Tower could not successfully fuse their power with their fellow disciples, they would be treated as a ‘foreign body’. Therefore, they would be injured by their fellow disciples’ Dao Techniques.
That would explain how Fang Zhengzhi’s nonsense and his singing had managed to injure those disciples with their own Dao techniques.
“I see!” Fang Zhengzhi’s lips curled into a smile subconsciously, because this reminded him of a classic physics experiment in his previous life.
It was a very simple experiment: Set up a few hundred pendulum clocks in the same area and mess with their pendulums so that they are swinging randomly and completely out of sync.
However, after a period of time, something magical would happen. The pendulums that were swinging randomly would slowly synchronize themselves and oscillate at the same frequency.
The theoretical explanation for this phenomenon, was that each pendulum would emit a special ‘sound pulse’ that would affect the surrounding pendulums.
By putting this into concept, each disciple could be treated as a pendulum clock. When a disciple used her Dao technique, it acted as a sound pulse which would turn the other disciples into pendulum clocks as well.
Following which, each disciple would use a special technique to combine her Origin Energy with that of the first disciple, or in other words, become a part of it. After that, it would appear as if all the disciples were using the same Dao technique. This was impressive!
Fang Zhengzhi truly didn’t expect someone in this world to understand such a concept, and even applying it to the usage of Dao techniques.
It seemed like scientific knowledge was important regardless of the world one was in. Listening and learning about science was the only way to become a true master.
Fang Zhengzhi sighed emotionally, and he couldn’t help but remember a classic phrase that he came across frequently in his previous life.
“Study hard and do it hard!”
“Why is it ‘do it hard’?”
Whatever, Fang Zhengzhi never cared about details anyway. At this moment, the thing that he wanted to do most… That was wrong.
Fang Zhengzhi shook his head and discarded all distractions. After all, he had already discovered the true cause behind this.
In that case, the next step was easy.
He had secured victory as he understood both himself and his opponent.
Fang Zhengzhi already knew how the disciples of Ling Yun Tower were able to use the same Dao Technique. He was ready to take it to the experimental phase.
As an aspiring youth, Fang Zhengzhi’s motto had always been: If the enemy doesn’t move, neither will I. If the enemy moves, I will… Move randomly!
At the moment, he had a strong urge to move randomly, and he did!
When a Ling Yun Tower’s disciple shouted ‘Move’, Fang Zhengzhi did the same almost simultaneously.
More importantly, when Fang Zhengzhi shouted that, a dazzling jade-green radiance appeared on his body as the same time.
Of course, the disciple that shouted ‘Move’ was also glowing. However, it was a deep-blue light unlike that on Fang Zhengzhi’s body.
The two lights almost appeared at the same time, following which, something strange happened.
The deep-blue light started spreading in all directions, with that disciple at the center of it. This was nothing abnormal.
However, what was abnormal was that, a jade-green light was spreading around Fang Zhengzhi as well. Although it didn’t cover much area, it contrasted sharply with the deep-blue light. The two lights soon collided against each other with a loud “Boom!”.
The deep-blue light which was absolutely overpowering obviously suppressed the jade-green light. That naturally injured the disciples glowing with the jade-green light severely.
“What’s going on?!”
There were disciple screaming from surprise and disbelief, together with the sound of blood spurting.
The outcome was clearly visible.
Over 20 disciples trembled as blood flowed out through the corner of their mouths.
Of course, Fang Zhengzhi remained unaffected.
This was because he adaptively converted the jade-green light on his body to the deep-blue light that was coming for him.
It was a deep, deep blue…
Everything took place very quickly and suddenly, but the effectiveness was outstanding. At the very least, the disciples of Ling Yun Tower, including Cang Yue, were struck dumb.
“How is… How is this possible?!” Cang Yue was overwhelmed with disbelief and she looked towards the disciples on the ground. She had never lost her cool like this before.
Ping Yang and Lin Mubai were equally shocked. Even Qian Ye’s expression changed completely when she witnessed this.
Everyone already stunned when Fang Zhengzhi taunted Ling Yun Tower and started singing ridiculous songs, but now… Only after they witnessed the collision between the two lights, did they realize that there was something more unbelievable than Fang Zhengzhi’s lethal singing. Furthermore, it took place right before their eyes.
“How did he do that?” This question appeared in everyone’s mind, including Ping Yang, Lin Mubai, Cang Yue, and all of Ling Yun Tower’s disciples.
They thought Fang Zhengzhi got lucky when he came up with the singing strategy to distract them. They believed that it was a coincident.
However, when Fang Zhengzhi said “Move” and successfully led over 20 disciples to use the same Dao technique as him, no one dared to say that he was just being lucky anymore.
“This guy is truly a prodigy!”
“This is impossible! How did he do that!”
The disciples’ astonishment turned into fear. They feared Fang Zhengzhi from the bottom of their hearts.
Meanwhile, Fang Zhengzhi was oblivious to their emotions. After the success of his first experiment, he wanted to up his game again.
He wanted to turn his passiveness into aggressiveness.
He was a man after all, so he didn’t want to remain passive when hundreds of women were forcing themselves onto him.
He needed to turn over and be the aggressor instead, because he was an aspiring youth with dreams and responsibilities.
Therefore, he moved again, only this time it wasn’t just verbal. He literally charged towards the disciples of Ling Yun Tower.
“What is he trying to do?!”
“He’s coming towards us!”
“Stop him, stop him now!”
While the disciples were astonished and agitated, they heard two simultaneous “Move” again. Following which, the same thing happened.
Two rays of lights appeared and collided against each other nonstop.
As the initiator, Fang Zhengzhi adaptively changed his Dao technique at the moment of collision again and escape unscathed.
However, Ling Yun Tower’s disciples couldn’t change their Dao techniques so rapidly, so a dozen of them ended up badly wounded.
Fang Zhengzhi was smiling so brightly.
No one said that he could only defend himself against their attacks. Hence, he decided to move around like a flickering light.
“Come on, let’s keep moving!”
“I don’t mind if you guys move even faster, regardless of what you do, there aren’t many new tricks left!”
“This is too slow, why don’t you follow my tempo instead!”
“Unity is strength, it would always be easier to break a single pair of chopsticks than breaking 10 pairs of chopsticks. However, if I’m using a knife, 10 pairs of chopsticks wouldn’t work either.”
“If you can’t fight it, just relax and enjoy it. The outcome would be the same anyway.”
While Fang Zhengzhi was busying moving around, he didn’t forget to keep spouting nonsense. He was having so much fun dancing and jumping around Ling Yun Tower’s disciples.
Meanwhile, Ping Yang and Lin Mubai were completely stunned.
“He…” Lin Mubai wanted to say something, but he didn’t finish his sentence because he couldn’t think of something appropriate. This was meant to be a test that couldn’t be passed even if Fang Zhengzhi was much stronger than these disciples, but it unbelievably ended up like this. “Incredible” wouldn’t be enough to describe what had happened.
However, a sudden change occurred again.
No one knew if it was because Fang Zhengzhi got too lucky, or if he was simply jumping around too much.
After bouncing around randomly, a miraculous scene took place. The entire Ling Yun Tower’s formation went haywire.
As a result… Fang Zhengzhi’s Dao technique managed to overpower all the other disciples’ Dao techniques. In fact, over 80% of the disciples were using the same Dao technique as him.
Fang Zhengzhi was also surprised to see this, and he subconsciously glanced at Qian Ye.
“Is she still treating this like a show? Is this… Really so entertaining?” Fang Zhengzhi couldn’t understand why Qian Ye would rather watch her disciples collapse than to admit defeat.
The outcome of this test was already so obvious, but Qian Ye hadn’t said a word yet.
Fang Zhengzhi couldn’t figure out what she was thinking.
However, he was certain that he couldn’t let Qian Ye watch this ‘show’ without paying a price. At the very least, she had to purchase a ticket or something.
“Come on, let’s move together!” Fang Zhengzhi smiled and punched towards Qian Ye.
The red light that shrouded Ling Yun Tower moved in the blink of an eye and crashed towards Qian Ye with an unimaginable speed.
“What?! Leader, watch out!” Cang Yue’s expression changed. She couldn’t react to Fang Zhengzhi’s sudden attack in time.
Qian Ye was also caught off guard. After all, even she herself didn’t expect to see this happening. She could never imagine that Fang Zhengzhi was able to ‘control’ Ling Yun Tower’s disciples.
“What’s going on?!”
“How did he manage to control Ling Yun Tower’s disciples?”
Ping Yang and Lin Mubai were equally taken aback. This was too strange and illogical after all.
No one could figure out what was happening.
However, Fang Zhengzhi wasn’t surprised by the result of his action, because he was well aware that the ‘pendulum clock’ that was leading the others, was the core of the formation. Putting it bluntly, all the other ‘pendulum clocks’ were just following the motion of the core. Although they could control their attacks accordingly, they could never go against the command of the core ‘pendulum clock’.
That was the difference between the leader and the followers!
“Fang Zhengzhi!” Qian Ye finally said something, and she was visibly angry unlike before.
Truth be told, no one else could remain calm if he or she was put in the same situation. As the leader of Ling Yun Tower, she was attacked by her own disciples. Furthermore, they were under the command of an outsider!
This would definitely be humiliating if it got out. However, what was more humiliating was that she had to follow Fang Zhengzhi’s movement.
The faint golden light in her eyes was replaced by a red light, one that was identical to that on Fang Zhengzhi and all the Ling Yun Tower’s disciples’ bodies.
Just as Fang Zhengzhi had said, Qian Ye did something that she herself couldn’t believe. She was moving together with him.
Silence ensued. Everybody, including the disciples of Ling Yun Tower, Cang Yue, Ping Yang, and Lin Mubai, went dead silent.
