The sound of blades crossing sounded for the umpteenth time . It’s a fight between swordmasters, every time the crowd thought one of them can’t block an attack, they block it .
It’s a very spectacular display of sword mastery .
The crowd sang praises and rained down cheers upon the two fighters . Hinagiku had changed the students’ opinion of her .
None of the crowd think that any one of the newcomers is an easy target . These special students are all very strong individuals .
This excluded Flandre-chan who has her powers sealed for the time being, nobody would expect a kid to bring them any entertainment during a fight .
Hinagiku unfurled a piercing storm of sword jabs . In the blink of an eye, Hinagiku struck out a 5 hit combo that forced Vishi back .
Not giving him a room to relax, Hinagiku went into a dash as her pink hair danced in the wind due to her speed, she looked like a sakurcolored flower in that battlefield .
Vishi had more strength than Hinagiku, when he retreated, Hinagiku got close but Vishi struck out with his arming sword .
His arming sword glowed brightly due to the infused dou qi . He unleashed a sword beam from the arming sword, the golden beam with massive energy in it headed towards Hinagiku in the form an arc .
Wu Yan yelled out . He grabbed onto the railing with all his might while watching the match in an anxious manner . Her fighting style is different from Vishi who relied on his overwhelming dou qi, Hinagiku used pure skills and strength to unleash her attacks .
In terms of power, Hinagiku is weaker, the only thing she can use is the technique she developed during her student years in Hakuo .
Her kendo foundation and the effect of leveling up had made her a very strong person . The downside of her technique and strength meant that she can only do close ranged attack and she didn’t have fancy attack skills .
It’s an unknown whether or not Hinagiku can sustain this fight while defending against Vishi’s dou qi attack .
Hinagiku glanced at Wu Yan and she could see that Wu Yan is really worried for her .
It’s like time had stopped . Exposed to dou qi attacks, her eyes flashed .
I don’t want to see your worried expression anymore…
But, Yan, just let me be selfish one more time…
Hinagiku had a firm expression . Shirosakura brightened as if responding to her resolve .
Hinagiku raised Shirosakura and she charged towards the beam contrary to the crowd’s expectation . She sliced at the sword beam .
Wu Yan, Mikoto, Fei Fei, and Lulu cried out .
The frightening power in that sword beam made Hinagiku wince from the vibrations . She started feeling a heavy sensation in her chest . However, she didn’t retreat, she psyched herself up with a battle cry and she pushed forward while stomping with her hands firmly holding onto the blade .
Her powerful advance managed to crack the sword beam .
“Hey now, you’ve got to be kidding me…”
Vishi is flabbergasted by this scene . He had an ominous feeling when he saw how his dou qi beam got cracked .
But, before Vishi can react in time, Hinagiku gnashed her teeth and she yelled before giving another mighty push with her crystal sword .
Like an old rag, the crystal sword split the beam in half . The remnants of the sword beam scattered into Hinagiku’s background .
“What the f…”
Vishi almost cussed . His full power sword beam got split in half like some third-rate cleaning rag .
Vishi didn’t stop to realize that Hinagiku isn’t done just yet .
Hinagiku leveraged her momentum and tossed her sword at Vishi . Shirosakura flew at Vishi while splitting the air .
Vishi panicked and he immediately retreated away but it’s the same situation as Hinagiku was in before, there is no leeway to dodge .
The tip of the sword is already very close to his face . He could see the fine grains of the sword and he would be hard-pressed to imitate Hinagiku’s counter .
Vishi chose to unleash his dou qi and use the force to repel the sword .
Since Hinagiku simply threw the sword, the force from the unleashed dou qi repelled the sword quite easily .
However, Vishi thought wrongly if he thought Hinagiku didn’t factor this in .
He knew this won’t end well when he heard the sound .
Hinagiku grabbed the sword that was flying away and she slapped Vishi’s body with the side of sword like a bat .
Vishi flew away and crashed hard into the ground . He endured the intense pain coming from his chest and the sword appeared this time, with its tip pointing at his forehead .
The crowd went silent .
Vishi looked at the sword and he looked at Hinagiku who is both pale and panting hard at the moment .
The crowd looked at each other as if to confirm that just happened . They cheered, nay roared in elation .
Hinagiku won everyone’s respect and applaud .
Her comrades all sighed in relief before they smiled at each other .
“What an agile one . ”
Lei Wang laughed out loud .
“Formidable strength, quick mind, and wonderful technique . I should have expected as much from one of the teammates of that young fellow . ”
The higher-ups all nodded, they thought very highly of Hinagiku’s performance as well .
Lei Wang stood up and he declared the winner .
“Victory goes to Katsura Hinagiku!”
Everyone got hyped up as well . Another ranker had risen up as one of the new top 10 rankers . Moreover, she is one of the newcomers .
Hinagiku came back to a sea of cheers and hugs . Wu Yan felt a bit of pain when he saw Hinagiku’s pale face, he caressed her face while whispering into her ears .
“Take a good rest…”
Hinagiku nodded and she closed her eyes while Wu Yan stroked her .
