A trace of surprise emerged on Hong Yinchuan's face. This was the first time!
Ever since he had stepped onto the path of martial arts, this was his first time being at a disadvantage during a duel with another young disciple! He didn't even see how the other party had made his move and the power of his three fists had been reflected back. For such method, even his teacher Zuo Tianci had never learned it!
"Yinchuan, don't underestimate the enemy. This Qin Wushuang is not an ordinary Stargaze disciple!" Zuo Tianci was hiding his presence in a corner of this city gate. He did not expose himself and only reminded his disciple by sending his voice through spiritual sense.
This was his first step in destroying the Great Luo Empire. He would defeat the Stargaze's young generation at first, then he would step out and kill all five Palace Masters during the crowning ceremony. He would toss the Stargaze into the eternal abyss completely!
This time, Zuo Tianci had gone through a serious planning process. He knew that it sounded beautiful to slaughter all people of the Stargaze Palace. However, it was not feasible to carry out.
Firstly, the other countries would surely become alarmed if he created a nasty impression of brutality and ruthlessness.
Secondly, if he was too tyrannical, the other countries would become dissatisfied and form an alliance to target the Nine Palace and the Red Dragon Empire.
From beginning to end, the Nine Palace had never really stood firm in court of public opinion. One could say that they had set out without a just cause.
Thus, they were different than the Stargaze and the Archaic Mysteries sect. Regardless from the viewpoint of morality or justification, the Stargaze Palace had maintained the high ground when they destroyed the Archaic Mysteries sect.
From the standpoint of justification and morality, the Archaic sect had betrayed the three Empire alliance and invited the Nine Palace to interfere in eastern affairs. They had almost led to the annihilation of the Stargaze. It was reasonable and fair for the Stargaze Palace to seek revenge and crush the Archaic.
However, the Nine Palace Faction was never in the right. Initially, they had become enemies with the Stargaze because they had lusted over the eastern territories and the Endless Eastern Sea.
The situation this time was not a private event. Clearly, it would not work if he were to try and destroy the Stargaze Palace publicly before all those powerful sects from different Empires.
However, if he used the name of suppression and revenge, it would work for him to challenge the five Palace Masters of the Stargaze Palace. Once he made a move, he could kill all five Palace Masters of the Stargaze. Then, the Stargaze would fall into a hopeless situation without a leader.
This plan was much more reasonable than last time's impulsive actions.
Inwardly, Hong Yinchuan was stunned after he heard Zuo Tianci's message in his head. A moment ago, he had indeed looked down on his enemy when he was fighting with Qin Wushuang. It was only because from beginning to end, Qin Wushuang did not display any skills that could be on par with him.
This way, he could not help but to become overconfident.
He didn't know it was Qin Wushuang testing his skill and his spiritual strength.
Through this test, naturally, Qin Wushuang had a deeper understanding of Hong Yinchuan's methods. When he saw Hong Yinchuan stepping forward from the border line, Qin Wushuang laughed at him: "No need to step forward in such a hurry, the line will not accuse you of losing without cause. To beat you out the line, it will be done through a justified way. Everyone should be able to see it clearly and would not object."
With an ashen face, Hong Yinchuan did not speak a word. Right now, he clearly saw that if he spoke too much, he would slip up at some point for sure. This Qin Wushuang was a grandmaster at acting from beginning to end. A moment ago, he almost fallen into his trap as he had kept a low-profile.
Of course, Hong Yingchuan would not fall for the same tricks twice.
He grabbed something from his back and pulled out two short sticks. Both hands held one stick and he had connected the two into a long staff. Next, he swing the long staff in the sky and in a flash, a shiny spear head appeared on one of the tip of the staff.
This spear head appeared extremely resplendent and carried traces of coldness. With one look, it would stir your soul.
Hong Yingchuan shot the spearhead in a few swings. Suddenly, waves of strange sounds echoed from the spearhead that caused the sky to emit a hiss.
"Qin Wushuang, let this Wind Cloud Spear send you off!"
Before the sound of his voice had disappeared, the formation of his spear moves were finished. Instantly, he struck forward with his arm. As if his arm had extended infinitely, the Wind Cloud spear carrying with it traces of coldness, formed into a fatal attack as the wind pushed the clouds away.
As soon as this cold light had formed, it instantly emitted a wave of powerful cold intentions as if it could freeze one's soul. Although the spear had only pointed at one place, wherever it went, the air it touched formed an icy line and emitted popping sounds.
Qin Wushuang twitched his mouth and flicked his sleeve. He initiated his temperament and send out a wave of "Sun Flame Power" from the centre of his palm. With a whooshing sound, it moved to engulf that icy line.
At the same time, suddenly, Qin Wushuang twisted his body and disappeared from the spot.
One, two, three…
One after another, a residue shadow continuously appeared inside the circle. This residue shadow would disappear into nothing after stopping for a moment. Due to this, it caused Hong Yinchuan's spear attack to pierce nothing.
However, Hong Yinchuan was not depressed as a playful smile emerged on the corner of his mouth. Suddenly, he said :"Since you like to dodge, then I will make it so you have nowhere to go!"
As soon as he had finished speaking, he shot the spear forward and swung it through the air. Instantly, the residue shadow of the spear flashed in the sky for a moment. Hong Yinchuan's body moved rapidly and he swung the Wind Cloud Spear into the sky like a flying dragon. Each time he swung the spear, it seemed as if he had added a lock to this ten metre area.
With one lock adding on top of another, in a moment, he had locked this area. Next, Hong Yinchuan drew the spear like a pendulum and countless attacking airblades flew at Qin Wushuang.
When the ten metre space was spliced into countless little spaces by these airwaves, it instantly shrunk Qin Wushuang's area of movement.
Suddenly, Qin Wushuang drew his body in and many of the residue shadows fixed itself at one place. Then, he stopped at a corner in the rear. Even so, there was still a trace of a light smile on the corner of his mouth.
It was as if he still had control of such a devastating situation.
"Mister, I waited for you for a long time, is this all you've got? Is this your most proud skill, as the number one disciple of the Nine Palace Faction?" Qin Wushuang did not disguise the mockery in his voice, "Next, it's my turn!"
Hong Yinchuan gave an evil grin: "I am not afraid of you making a move, I am just afraid that you might be hide your head like an ostrich."
Qin Wushuang said lightly: "I have not made any moves because I wanted to give you time to make a few more moves and truly experience how weak you are. If I were to make a move, I would never blabber on like you guys! In three moves, I will definitely make you fly out of this circle. If that's not the case, then it's my loss!"
These words were spoken with power and confidence as if in his eyes, this number one disciple of the Nine Palace was nothing more than weeds on the roadside.
Hong Yinchuan's expression became cold: "Three moves? Kid, you are mad!"
Qin Wushuang laughed: "This is not madness, I'm just stating a fact!"
After he had finished speaking, he pulled out the Fury Dragon Soul in his hand. As soon as Qin Wushuang held the Fury Dragon Soul, instantly, it was as if a spiritual beast had awakened and an awe-inspiring presence could be felt. It coiled in the sky and before he had moved, it already exhibited a strong engulfing force.
With a light chant, Qin Wushuang already started to move with his footsteps. In a swing, a completely unrushed whip swung at Hong Yinchuan.
When this whip was only halfway there, it changed into countless sweeping attacks and unlocked all the space sealed by Hong Yinchuan.
In a whoosh, the power of the whip turned into ten thousand fathoms of great waves and flew at the head of Hong Yinchuan.
Hong Yinchuan knew himself that his Wind Cloud Spear was already showing tremendous force over the temperament. After all, it was a weapon at the Perfect Stage level.
However, instantly he had experienced the so-called true temperament when Qin Wushuang swept this whip at him. Indeed, this whip showed surging power that was like a mountain and sea. It was not something his Wind Cloud Spear could take on.
He immediately followed the power of this whip and retreated to the side at a rapid speed.
When Qin Wushuang saw this scene, he said lightly: "Second move!"
With a whoosh, like an earth dragon, the entire Fury Dragon Soul swept through the ground. It swept across the ground as if sweeping to all corners.
This sweeping move was profound as it had blocked off all of Hong Yinchuan's paths of retreat.
With the initiation from the power of this whip, the entire ground seemed to be filled with reverse currents and five times the gravity. Once a person became trapped, most likely they would not even be able to lift their feet.
Terror-stricken, Hong Yinchuan finally realised how terrifying his opponent was. He flew to the sky and used the Wind Cloud Spear to support his weight. At the same time, his body twisted in the sky continuously like the sparrow hawk for he tried to escape from Qin Wushuang's power.
The corner of Qin Wushuang's mouth raised upward lightly as he still spoke with a lightly tone: "Third move!"
After he had finished speaking, Qin Wushuang's imposing manner changed dramatically. As if he had turned into a furious guardian deity, an enormous power gushed out as he waved the whip across the sky.
Vaguely, the Fury Dragon Soul seemed to have restored its vitality and was bestowed with a genuine life force. Like a resurrected fury dragon, it swallowed the clouds and blew out fog at the sky.
A flying dragon had appeared in the sky!
This move was world-shaking.
This move seemed to engulf the starry galaxy!
Regardless of how much Hong Yinchuan tried to dodge, all his abilities were shown to be useless before this powerful engulfing power. His body dropped at a high speed as if been pulled by the invisible power.
Qin Wushuang followed his dropping velocity and wrapped Hong Yinchuan within the airflow. He wrapped him tightly and threw him to the ground.
A wave of dust spread to both sides on the ground. Like a speeding train, Hong Yinchuan's body dashed forward!
When his body touched the ground, it had fallen thirty metres away.
Almost at the same time, a wave of cheering erupted from all around! Those disciples of the Nine Palace could not accept this reality. In between a few breaths since Qin Wushuang had pulled out the Fury Dragon Soul, the overwhelming tide of the battle had turned!
Indeed, it was a mere three moves. And it was a continuous three moves. As if the plot was already written beforehand, Hong Yinchuan did not even have time to react and had been thrown outside the circle.
This defeat had arrived in a flash during the height of the battle. It had happened when Hong Yinchuan was at the peak of his temperament and when he thought he had the win in his hand. Suddenly, the situation had changed and next, he was beaten to total collapse…
Hong Yinchuan's body touched the ground and he spat out a mouthful of blood from his ashen face.
