This way, regardless of how apparent Qin Wushuang’s disadvantage seemed, he did not allow Wei Yi to launch the final attack. It caused the audience members to separate into two different sides.
A part of them felt that Qin Wushuang’s pessimistic fighting style was a method of escape.
The other portion were all deeply impressed. Regardless of the methods, he was able to hold on under Wei Yi’s strong attack, this was strength!
To someone like Wei Yi, a supreme authority that had not received any true challenges forever, it was a breakthrough. Perhaps, this breakthrough would create a new situation—Wei Yi’s absolute power among the younger generation would start to falter as people start to doubt him.
Even if Qin Wushuang were to lose this fight, they had reason to believe that within five to ten years, would he not be able to catch up to Wei YI? Or surpass him?
Wei Yi was a legendary figure. He had the Natural Spiritual Roots and was at the Middle Stage of the Spiritual Martial Force!
However, Qin Wushuang, the dark horse also had extraordinary experiences! He had suddenly emerged from the Bai Yue Country, the victor of the martial arts student exam and had achieved Upper Sky by himself. He had killed Li Wuji, the head disciple of the Old Devil Ji Yin and killed two Martial Saints. Next, he was the victor to the gambling competition and acquired perfect scores in all six categories in the Advanced disciple exam.
After he had entered the Core ranking competition, he had surmounted all difficulties and made it into the top four!
Although he appeared to have the total disadvantage right now in his fight with Wei Yi, at least, to this point, Wei Yi had not yet beaten him.
To a dark horse, it was a great victory to have Wei Yi use all he had and still not be unable to beat him in a short time. After all, it was his first year participating in the Core ranking competition!
Definitely, his future would be on to look forward to.
From afar, the five Palace Masters, eight Shakyamuni, the sixteen Elders and the ten Palace Emissaries all fixed their gazes on this battle.
As for the battle between Zhou Fu and Miao Zhongxia, it seemed that everyone knew the result and did not even have the interest to watch. In the past, such battles have happened before and there would not be any surprises.
Still, the Third Palace Master did not feel convinced when Qin Wushuang had beaten his disciple. He joked: "Second, your dark horse has truly turned into a dark horse this time. See how he jumps and prances."
Tan Zhongchi sighed: "If it was Zhao Muzhi on the stage, he most likely would not even have the skill to jump around. Don’t you see that Wei Yi has already used his full power? Besides using his trump cards, he is most likely using everything."
Zhuo Buqun pretended to not hear their argument. Currently, he was not thinking about the inter-faction rivalry, but an extremely serious and microscopic problem.
Only, he felt he had no one to talk to as someone in his position.
Qin Wushuang absorbed the surrounding Qi at will. His entire sea of Qi was filled with the Spiritual Qi. It was like a balloon brimming with air and had reached a point of saturation.
Regardless of his own Spiritual Qi or the Qi absorbed from Wei Yi that could not be fully merged, it had reached an overflowing state.
Qin Wushuang knew that finally, it was time for him to unleash the temperament and the Qi he had been accumulating for a while.
Earlier, he knew that with his Initial Stage Spiritual Qi, he would not have the skill to confront Wei Yi head on.
However, after having absorbed so much Qi, his sea of Qi was like an automatic machine gun full of bullets. It was only waiting for him to pull the trigger.
If he could unleash the Spiritual Qi he had accumulated from his own body, Qin Wushuang believe that he would have the qualification to confront
with Wei Yi head on!
Invisibly, Qin Wushuang’s strategy had solidified into the best feature from the concept of "To beat others with borrowed power"!
Again, Qin Wushuang opened his throat and gave a long whistle. Like a celestial dragon breaking through the air, this long whistle had immediately helped him to initiate his Qi.
Instantly, he seemed to occupy half of the background.
Inwardly stunned, Wei Yi realized that regardless of Spiritual Qi or the temperament, Qin Wushuang’s roaring power had become much richer than the previous instance. It was as if the power had doubled!
"Senior Brother Wei Yi, how about taking three of my sword moves?"
Qin Wushuang laughed and waved his arm. Instantly, he held the Violet Sun Sword tightly in his hand. Through the sword, he brought out all the Spiritual Qi from his body and sent out a startling red light to the sky.
The galloping sword light slashed directly toward Wei Yi’s chest.
There was an overflowing temperament.
As if possessed by a celestial being, Qin Wushuang had completely changed from his previous embarrassing state. What he had was the momentum, determination, and courage to fight to the end.
Wei Yi frowned slightly and inwardly, he felt surprised: "How is it possible?"
During the usual days, Wei Yi had also sparred with many elite warriors. He had organized his own set of analysis through observing the opponents. After observing the Upper Sky battles, he had some knowledge of Qin Wushuang’s Spiritual level. He knew that Qin Wushuang would never have the courage to confront him head-on.
However, right now, Qin Wushuang was rushing toward him without holding back. After sending out that sword move, vividly, he seemed to have the strength to fight him on equal grounds.
The Spiritual force carried by this sword attack even caused his face, an elite warrior at the Middle Stage of the Spiritual Force, to change color! He could not help but feel astonished.
"Could this Qin Wushuang have concealed his strength and already had the power of a Middle Stage?"
After using the to absorb the Spiritual Qi, Qin Wushuang had already stabilized his stage and was close to the peak state of the Initial Stage. Currently, he had also absorbed much of Wei Yi’s Spiritual Qi. After unleashing it along with his own Qi, of course, he had the momentum to fight on an equal footing with this warrior at the Middle Stage!
Most likely, besides Qin Wushuang, no one would know the secrets within it. After all, there were too many marvelous things that existed.
In a real battle, he had absorbed the Spiritual Qi of the opponent and used it as his own! If it were any other ordinary Initial Stage martial artists, they would face an immediate death with their arteries incinerated by that Qi absorbed from someone at the Middle Stage.
However, ever since Qin Wushuang had encountered that fortuitous opportunity at the Great Cang Mountains, his body had experienced an unknown change. Its endurance was unpredictable.
Indeed, he had no problem absorbing the spiritual Qi unleashed by Wei Yi.
In a hurried state, Wei Yi did not dare to lower his guard. He stepped backward slightly, flicked his sleeve and a thin blade of delicate texture appeared in his hand.
Everyone beneath the stage was surprised. They opened their mouths widely as they watched this unimaginable scene.
They thought that their eyes had gone blurry. Before, they all felt that Qin Wushuang had reached a state of exhaustion with no more energy.
Suddenly, this guy developed such strong battle will as fierce as a tiger. He had initiated an offensive attack on Wei Yi.
And Wei Yi’s reaction made these people even more stunned!
In fact, Wei Yi took a little step backward. Although it was a little step, it was the first step back that Wei Yi had ever taken on the martial arts stage after he had become a warrior at the Middle Stage!
"No wonder this Qin Wushuang is the strongest dark horse! Surely, he would feel proud to be able to cause Senior Brother Wei Yi to take a step back. For this fight, even if he is to lose, it is enough for him to look down on other young disciples. He has done something astonishing that no one else has or could do!"
"Yes, Senior Brother Wei Yi is even using a weapon! This Qin Wushuang is strong. In fact, we need to thank him. If it wasn’t due to his craziness, we most likely won’t even know what mysterious weapon Wei Yi is using right?"
"Right?" Tsk tsk, just by looking at this blade, it is not an ordinary object! Could it be a weapon at the Middle Stage?"
Revealing a solemn expression, Wei Yi swung the blade as thin as the wings of the cicada’s wing and spoke: "Junior Brother Qin, I admit that you are the strongest opponent I have ever met since I entered the Middle Stage! You should feel proud for making me using this Cicada Sword!"
Qin Wushuang laughed: "Stop with the extra words, second sword move!"
He pointed with the tip of his toe and his entire body, along with the sword rolled into a ball to attack the part below Wei Yi’s stomach.
Wei Yi’s face turned cold. This Qin Wushuang was showing crazy attacks as if he did not care about the consequences! Judging from his actions, it seemed that he was not competing but fighting for his life.
However, it was this type of desperate attack that made Wei Yi even angrier.
He decided that despite the risks of getting berated by his teacher, he would defeat this Qin Wushuang. He would not even care if he were to injure him seriously!
He pushed forward with the Cicada blade and a wave of white light flickered out from the tip of his blade.
As soon as he pushed forward the cutting edge of the blade, the blade light rushed out like a wild beast.
Like the cold stars from the sky, this wave of blade light carried an extremely unbearable presence toward Qin Wushuang. Apparently, this presence was the Upper Sky natural power. However, this natural power was completely different from the ones he had touched before.
It was a tyrannical, harsh, and mysterious presence.
Wei Yi twitched the corner of his mouth and felt overjoyed when he saw Qin Wushuang still charging forward without a care: "Qin Wushuang, Qin Wushuang, even if you were at an equal stage of Spiritual Qi, your level is still less than mine. Don’t you know that at the Middle Stage, I can already separate the elements of the natural power?"
An elemental attack was to extract the initial elements from the natural power. Naturally, the offensive power was extremely pure and much stronger than the ordinary Upper Sky Spiritual Qi!
Although Wei Yi’s blade attack had low elemental energy, vividly, it already carried some initial mysteries of the metal element.
As soon as the blade approached him, Qin Wushuang felt an unprecedented murderous intention. It was rich and sharp.
Suddenly, Qin Wushuang opened his mouth to reveal a smile. Like a slippery fish, he flashed to the left side of Wei Yi. Next, following the momentum, he raised his left hand and pushed forward a bullet-like Young Shang Sword toward Wei Yi’s chest. And his footsteps still maintained the forward speed!
Unable to avoid it, Wei Yi also shot out a palm attack with his left hand towards Qin Wushuang’s open chest.
Qin Wushuang was hit by Wei Yi’s powerful palm and he flew backward like a kite with a broken string.
And with a glowing red light, a giant hole appeared in Wei Yi’s right shoulder as blood flowed out endlessly. He stepped backward in extreme shock.
For this fight, neither side had won!
