When Qin Wushuang was hit by Wei Yi’s palm attack, he only felt a wave of Spiritual Qi penetrating through his chest that traveled through all the arteries in his body. The penetrating power of the metal energy caused him to feel extremely uncomfortable.
He continuously moved and dropped onto the other side of the martial arts stage. Immediately, he started to use the to absorb the invading Qi into his sea of Spiritual Qi by force.
Although he had a quick reaction, that invading force still caused huge pain to his body.
He suppressed the pain, which felt akin to blades cutting him up inside his entire body, and his face twitched into a smile. That expression carried a swift and fierce unruliness.
To Qin Wushuang, he had experienced too much life and death battles in his former world. He had a completely different experience than Wei Yi, who had grown up in a greenhouse.
He did not fear injuries or life and death battles. In a flash, he found a chance to force a draw.
That’s right, he had found the opportunity! Initially, there was a huge difference between him and Wei Yi regarding the stages. Although he had absorbed Wei Yi’s Spiritual Qi, he could only grasp the chance to fight equally with him for a short time. This chance would disappear in a blink.
It was that chance that forced both sides to lose the possibility to fight again. Qin Wushuang was feeling extreme discomfort in his body.
However, currently, Wei Yi was also not having a good time.
His right shoulder had been penetrated by the and it was an extremely serious injury. He held the shoulder and fixed his gaze on Qin Wushuang with a gloomy face. This was the first opponent that had made him suffer injuries!
Qin Wushuang showed a willful smile: "Senior Brother Wei Yi, your attack was quite strong! However, you also suffered a lot from my attack, right?"
Wei Yi was surprised. He had used the abstruse aspect of the metal elemental power to attack. Although it only contained traces of the elemental energy, to an Initial Stage warrior, an attack from a Middle Stage warrior should be fatal. He didn’t expect that Qin Wushuang would withstand his attack and not fall off the stage.
He would never know that at that moment when Qin Wushuang’s body was falling back, he had already forcefully absorbed a portion of the invading Qi into his body.
Plus, when he had entered the Palace a while ago, the reward he had chosen, the "Cang Cloud Armour," had also helped to reduce a portion of the attack power.
Most importantly, after Qin Wushuang’s body went through that mysterious baptism through the Great Cang Mountain, it had developed an unknown and powerful regeneration ability.
Thus, although this attack was strong, it did not force Qin Wushuang to fall to his death.
If it were any other young disciple in the Stargaze Palace, they would most likely have died on the spot when they took Wei Yi’s attack. Thus, it was apparent to see how much Wei Yi despised Qin Wushuang in his heart.
These two remained unmoving and tried to probe whether the other party had the power to attack again.
On the stage, Tan Zhongchi was feeling pleasantly surprised and shocked. Earlier, he was sure that Qin Wushuang was still far from being able to compete with Wei Yi. For this battle, it would be counted as a win if he could hold on for a little more than half an hour.
However, he didn’t expect that Qin Wushuang would push Wei Yi to this extent. And in that instant, he felt that he had mistakenly believed that he had witnessed Qin Wushuang initiate an attack on Wei Yi. And his temperament at that moment was not less than Wei Yi’s.
On the other hand, the Head Palace Master was silent. He appeared to be extremely calm and one could not see through his emotions. It seemed that his most prized head disciple being brought into a position of suffering along with the enemy was not something u
In fact, not only was Zhuo Buqun not unhappy, he even felt somewhat joyous.
It was a situation he had hoped to see. The moment had finally arrived. Indeed, it was two fortuitous events occurring simultaneously.
For the first piece of fortune and source of joy, Wei Yi had finally encountered a rival among the younger generation. He would no longer be the person that went unchallenged nor would he have to continue to live a lonely existence at the peak. It would become extremely advantageous to his future growth. Perhaps, this feat would allow Wei Yi to break through the cognitive barrier and advance.
The second joy was that another elite genius had appeared in the Stargaze Palace. It would definitely be advantageous to the long-term growth of the Stargaze Palace.
For the current Stargaze Palace, it appeared to have a large foundation and in a peaceful state. However, the political powers at play in the Tian Xuan Land were as deep as a giant ocean. One would never know what you would face in the next moment. Perhaps, it would be a violent storm, an earthquake or a tsunami. Any at moment, there would be perilous situations with great waves.
To the entire Tian Xuan Land, the existence of the Stargaze Palace was not as high a position as the one they held in the Great Luo Empire.
Not to mention the other factors, the surrounding Empires would pose a deadly threat to the Stargaze Palace and launch destructive attacks on the Great Luo Empire.
Thus, at any time, the development of Stargaze Palace should focus on defending against foreign enemies to deal with the bigger picture in the Tian Xuan land. They should never lose sight of their primary goal due to internal conflicts.
What would one need for development? It would be talents!
They did not lack talent in the young generation. Indeed, there was a group of exceptional young people that was growing.
However, this group of young people did not form a general system and lacked some outstanding stars. Wei Yi, his head disciple would be one of them. He had the natural Spiritual Roots and entered the Middle Stage at such young age…
However, since a young age, Wei Yi had stayed above others. As a result, it caused him to not be able to lower his attitude. Regardless of how he tried to remind him, he lacked some crucial pointers when dealing with the general outlook.
Now, Qin Wushuang had emerged to meet a historic destiny. It was a shower of rain that had arrived at the right time and made Zhuo Buqun feel extremely satisfied. Qin Wushuang’s appearance would not only change the situation in the young generation of disciples at the Stargaze Palace, to some extent, he would also stimulate Wei Yi to unlock the most out of his potential of his Natural Spiritual Roots.
Inwardly, the other Palace Masters felt somewhat anxious and on tenterhooks as they could not guess Zhuo Buqun’s true intentions from the light expression on his face. At the same time, they also felt upset in every possible way with Qin Wushuang’s emergence from out of nowhere. Though, there wasn't much jealousy as Qin Wushuang would be good to the Stargaze Palace.
They were not exactly happy when they thought about how, from now on, the Green Cloud Palace would suppress them firmly. They felt somewhat aggrieved.
Leng Qiuchi, the Fourth Palace Master suddenly spoke: "Head Palace Master, for this battle, these two are all injured. If they keep fighting, it most likely won’t have a good ending. Should we stop them?"
"Right, let’s end it as a draw. If they continue to battle, they will develop personal grudges." Tian Zhixing, the Fifth Palace Master was also unwilling to see two exceptional young people become fire and water.
Zhuo Buqun said lightly: "While they are on the stage, the intentions of us old people should not influence them. Whether to fight or to stop, let them decide."
The remaining Palace Masters all shook their heads and sighed inwardly. They thought that the Head Palace Master was most likely angry at the current result and that he did not wish to end the fight in a draw.
Only, Zhou Buqun had different thoughts. He hoped to let Wei Yi experience more challenges on this martial arts stage. The more he experienced the obstacles, the more thoroughly Wei Yi could understand in later days.
Besides, Zhuo Buqun had also experienced a type of coarse and wild potential from Qin Wushuang. He really wanted to know how much more surprises this young man would have.
Through this journey, Qin Wushuang brought everyone too much shock and surprises. Even Zhuo Buqun, the Head Palace Master did not expect earlier that he had the power to injure Wei Yi at his current stage.
He never expected that after being hit by Wei Yi, Qin Wushuang stood his ground.
With his shoulder injured, it would not be convenient for Wei Yi to raise his arms. Of course, it was not easy for him to move his feet as well. If he moved in large steps, his injuries would get in the way.
However, apparently, he would not feel reconciled if he were to give up now. In the past Core ranking competition, he had never failed. Never had someone appeared to make him use more than thirty moves.
However, for today, not only had he used all his power and his weapon, he had even been injured! This situation had never appeared before. Right now, he could not accept it calmly.
Inwardly, he made a determined plan and thought: "Today, regardless of how much worse my injuries are going to get, I must beat this Qin Wushuang off the stage!"
When he thought here, he was set on the idea and fixed his gaze on Qin Wushuang and said: "Junior Brother Qin, I am surprised by your strength. However, your actions have also deeply wounded my pride. Today, I will beat you off this stage regardless!"
Still, Qin Wushuang carried that recklessly smile: "Senior Brother Wei Yi, if you are not afraid that you’ll worsen your injuries, cause internal damage to your sea of Spiritual Qi and influence your future training, go ahead and try. I promise that I won’t be the one to fall first!"
If it was the previous moment, Qin Wushuang would never speak with such confidence. However, he was experiencing a tremendous shock inwardly. He found it hard to believe that he felt that his injuries were regenerating itself at a devilish speed.
The speed of this regeneration was even more effective than any pills. It seemed to resemble that legendary Great Luo elixir potion that could "Bring life back from death and meat from white bones."
Naturally, Qin Wushuang was extremely surprised by this change. At this moment, his confidence also grew tremendously. He knew that regardless, he would not lose today’s fight.
Thus, with this confidence, he no longer had the eagerness to defeat Wei Yi as he wanted to earlier.
In the depths of his heart, Qin Wushuang hoped that they would end this fight in a draw.
He didn’t know how he had arrived on this thought. However, what he didn’t know was that he was slowly perfecting his temperament.
He had charged into this stage with his momentum as a dark horse. In fact, he could stop according to the situation. Although it would a dash to the sky by defeating Wei Yi at this moment, to a new person, it would not be a matter of success in the long term.
Only, he discovered that Wei Yi did not understand his thoughts. From his tone, apparently, he had become deeply frustrated and planned to fight head-on with Qin Wushuang despite his injuries.
However, to Qin Wushuang who was experiencing a whole new change in his body, how could he fear this fight?
Wei Yi handed the Cicada Sword to his left hand. Although to an elite warrior, changing the sword hand to the left would have some influence, it was not fatal. Despite the effect on his speed, he would overcome it.
It was because that he no longer planned to tangle with Qin Wushuang. He decided that it was time to use his trump cards!
