Through the fight with Zhao Muzhi, Qin Wushuang had gained plentiful.
During this battle, he didn’t expect that without his knowing, he had understand how to "do two things at once". It was a state in defiant of the nature order to use two techniques with two hands at the same time.
For this technique, he did not practice it intentionally at this world. However, he had practiced many times when he was living in the former world. The instant when he battled Zhao Muzhi, it was as if all the memories had connected from the former world in which he could perform this "multitask" technique perfectly without any sluggish. Everyone at the scene were shocked with their mouth wide open.
On the resting day, Qin Wushuang summarized the gains and losses from these five round of competition. Apparently, he had grasped more understanding in terms of combat experience.
In the sixth round, Qin Wushuang did not have any burden. Regardless of the opponent, he would use all his effort.
However, from the bottom of his heart, he does hope to fight with Wei Yi. Although with his current strength, he was not on par with this figure that had the Spiritual Roots and in the Middle Stage of the Spiritual Martial Force. Despite this fact, he does hope to fight with him.
He wanted to find their difference from this battle.
The contesting day of the sixth round arrived as promised.
The location of the draw was still at the big square outside the main palace. When the best four had produced, regarding the exact ranking, many Stargaze disciple already had a clear positioning.
Only, there were still some suspense that stimulated the nerves of these young disciples. They desperately wanted to know whether someone would unleash all their strength before the Senior Brother Wei Yi.
Under the gaze of tens and thousand eyes, the draw ceremony was conducted again.
Again, Qin Wushuang’s name got drawn first. Per the rule to this round, the participant that got his name drawn first would go draw his opponent.
Then, the remaining two people would fight each other.
As if he knew everything, Qin Wushuang walked up casually. Before he had extended his hands, he turned around and smiled. He glanced through the faces of three people, and finally, he stopped to look at Wei Yi. Showing an expressionless face, to Wei Yi, he did not care the opponent.
Vividly, he hoped that Qin Wushuang would be his opponent. He wanted to use this chance to probe the strength of this person.
No one cheated and no one had arranged anything. However, it seemed that somethings were set as pre-destined. Earlier, Qin Wushuang had a strong prediction.
The name he drew was the person he had wanted—Wei Yi.
When Wei Yi’s name got announced, a trace of playful smile appeared on Wei Yi’s face. And the tens and thousand Stargaze palace disciples that watched the show also emerged waves of thunder like cheers.
It was the result they wanted. All disciples at the Stargaze Palace knew that in the past years, anyone who got Wei Yi as the opponent would only resist as a sign of token. No one would use all they got to fight Wei Yi. Those who dared to fight with Wei Yi with everything all faced with the same result. They were beaten off the stage, without any signs of respect.
Thus, regardless of Zhou Fu or Miao Zhongxia, everyone knew that they would only fight to deal with the scene. They would never use all their efforts.
However, Qin Wushuang, the dark horse deserved everyone’s expectation. From him, they discovered a pressing forward temperament.
Perhaps, something never occurred before would get written differently with Qin Wushuang’s actions?
Perhaps, before Wei Yi, this figure that had the absolute authority, Qin Wushuang would show a performance full of vitality?
For these two, one of them had acquired perfect scores at the Advanced disciple exam sixteen years ago. And the other had repeated this honorable achievement.
Everything seemed to have gotten arranged as fated. For sure, the two stars of the Stargaze Palace would shine from this battle!
For Qin Wushuang, not only had he caught up to Wei Yi’s ranking competition record, he had advanced and surpassed him.
Now, he had made it all the way to become one of the best four!
Regardless of whether he could advance another step, his performance for this first year would surpass the past Wei Yi.
Wei Yi, the one with the Spiritual Natural Roots and who had maintained all the records from all aspects, someone had finally appeared to re-write it! And this person had already arrived before him aggressively.
Everyone wondered, how would Senior Brother Wei Yi deal this Qin Wushuang? Would he suppress him without showing any courtesy, or to exhort? Would a hero want to value another talent and to sympathize aze him?
Wei Yi’s face still appeared emotionless as if everything had nothing to do with him. To him, any opponents appeared no different.
However, since Qin Wushuang had drawn his name, he still felt somewhat happy from the bottom of his heart.
Along the way, Qin Wushuang had disqualified many of his Junior Brothers. Vividly, the momentum from the Second Palace Master had emerged roots to be on par with the lines of the Head Palace Master.
Although the Head Palace Master had reminded Wei Yi, from the bottom of his heart, he could not let go his intention to compete. He was unwilling to see that someone had actually used such speed to surpass his record.
He would not wish to see that someone could threaten his superior position among the younger generation at the Stargaze Palace.
The expression of the Head Palace Master also appeared as still as the water of the well. From the surface, one could not see his inner thoughts. Yet, he was having some complicated feelings.
This battle arrived like a coincidence, and just in time.
He wanted to use this battle to observe Wei Yi and to test whether his two times of reminders had worked.
Tan Zhongchi also had some complicated feelings. On one hand, he already got to known Qin Wushuang’s attitude on that day. Regardless of whom he meets, he would not comprise. It was an attitude that Tan Zhongchi wanted to see.
On the other hand, he must admit that although Qin Wushuang might be outanding and had exceptional talent, he still had some distance away from the current Wei Yi.
After all, Wei Yi had the natural Spiritual Roots. He had been nurtured with the path to Upper Sky since the moment he had entered the Stargaze Palace. Through sixteen years of efforts, he had already entered the Middle Stage of the Spiritual Martial Force for two or three years.
Tan Zhongchi knew better than anyone else the difference between a Middle Stage martial artist and one at the Initial Stage of the Spiritual Force. It was a difference in stages and difficult to make up.
Now, he could only hope that Wei Yi would not go overboard during the fight with Qin Wushuang. He wished he would not injure Qin Wushuang deliberately.
Qin Wushuang’s mind was as still as the calm water. He had a deep impression of Wei Yi the first time when he saw him at the Nature Manifestation Valley. He did not carry too much good feelings nor bad feelings towards this Senior Brother.
However, after the gambling competition, he learned that those group of people came to threaten him came from the line of the Head Palace Master. Behind him, more or less were Wei Yi’s intention. This had made him somewhat annoyed.
If Wei Yi only had such temperament being the leader of the younger generation of a sect, then Qin Wushuang would not emerge any sense of belonging to this group.
Only after Qin Wushuang had walked up to the martial arts stage, Wei Yi had approached at an unhurried pace as he jumped to the stage.
Carrying a trace of smile, Wei Yi opened to speak: "Qin Wushuang, I already heard your name when I was at the Virtuous Cloud Summit. Only, at the Nature Manifestation Valley, I didn’t know that young hero is the famous Qin Wushuang."
Qin Wushuang smiled lightly: "I feel deeply honored to be in the eyes of you. For today’s battle, I would use all I got, and you don’t need to hold back. I would say nothing even if you were to beat me in one move. I would not feel ashamed; it would only encourage me to practice harder."
Qin Wushuang remained calm and undaunted. He had nothing to hid his inner thoughts. He did not now want others to know that Wei Yi needed to hold back to fight him.
For this fight, he knew that he would not win. Yet, he still wanted to try.
For this fight, he would not ask for win or lose, but the process.
Hearing the words from Qin Wushuang, Wei Yi put on a serious expression and nodded: "If that’s the case, I would not hold back. I would like to see you being the dark horse, how are you much more exceptional than others! In fact, for these years, no one had appeared to let me fight without holding back!"
When he said here, he glanced at Qin Wushuang meaningfully and added: "Hopefully, you would be an exception. You would let me use all I got and enjoy the adrenaline from the duel!"
He did not bluff or praise himself. It was the honest truth. For these many years, when he had stood on the top spot, no one had been able to challenge his position and force him to use everything he got.
In the end, he felt lonely at the top. It was because of this state, as time passed by, it allowed him to not been able to use a one hundred percent right attitude to face a threatening challenge.
Qin Wushuang laughed: "Ok!"
At this moment, the two youngest and the strongest disciple of the Stargaze Palace would beign their fated battle.
Strangely, for this time, Qin Wushuang did not carry any weapons. He stood on one side of the martial arts stage empty-handed as straight as a tall and light as a gentle tree.
"Where is your sword and whip?" Wei Yi asked lightly.
"Senior Brother Wei Yi, for a fight between elite warriors, the sword and the whip are in my heart. When the time is right, they would come out." Qin Wushuang said lightly.
"Without the sword, you would not take three moves." There was a trace of arrogance from Wei Yi’s tone.
Qin Wushuang shook his head with a light smile: "Senior Brother Wei Yi, you linger on the shape of the sword inwardly, it seemed that you hold some grudge. During the battle, for sure, you would not achieve the state of abandoning all distractions."
Wei Yi could not help to laugh: "Dress up as the god, and playing the devil. I will try that in your heart, what kind of state would you use the so-called sword."
As soon as his words dropped, suddenly, he initiated the temperament from his entire body.
With this initiation, in between the sky and earth, clouds seemed to have travelled over and cover the sky.
Instantly, a large wave of Qi had emerged from Wei Yi’s body. Like the violent wave and storm, this wave of Qi had formed a giant whirl pool that exposed his treacherous temperament. It was as if he could go out of bound and devour everything within his vision.
Those tens and thousands of disciples watching from beneath the stage could not help to tremble as their expression also changed drastically.
Such powerful temperament and devouring power!
