Book 8 Chapter 71 The Greatest Battle
The instant Teng Qingshan’s words resonated throughout Tianfeng City, the entire Tianfeng City seemed explode as numerous Martial Cultivators and citizens stormed to the streets and to the balconies from within their houses. Although it was snowing heavily, everyone wanted to see the legendary Blazing Flame Martial Immortal—Teng Qingshan!
“The Blazing Flame Martial Immortal is going to challenge the Tianfeng Martial Immortal?”
“Where is he? I can’t see him.”
As the snowfall was too heavy, only some people near the Helian Residence could see him.
“Teng Qingshan, I didn’t expect you to have the guts to challenge me. Since you wish to embarrass yourself, I will fulfill this wish of yours!” Throughout the entire Tianfeng City, an indifferent voice rang out. The moment the people heard this voice, they trembled. The over a million people in Tianfeng City knew this voice belonged to the Tianfeng Martial Immortal!
The Tianfeng Martial Immortal was about to fight with the Blazing Flame Martial Immortal?
“Quickly! Let’s go to Helian Residence!”
“Go to Helian Residence quickly!”
The people in the entire Tianfeng City dashed wildly toward the Helian Residence. A great battle between two great Martial Immortals had never happened for several hundred years in the Duanmu Continent! The Martial Immortals might have fought secretly, however, a public fight between Martial Immortals which allowed even the ordinary people to see had never happened before!
If a person could see the great battle between Martial Immortals, then they could die with no regrets!
It was a frenzy! The people of the entire Tianfeng City had gone crazy!
The several ten thousand members of the Helian Clan and the elite soldiers gathered in the Helian Residence. A great number of people gathered in the four streets around the Helian Residence, And all of them looked up toward the sky at the Fiery Blaze Divine Bird. It was enveloped by flames and looked very conspicuous in the snowy white surroundings.
TLN: Just in case anyone misunderstood, Helian Residence is the inner city of the Tianfeng City. It’s called Helian Residence because only members of the Helian Clan stayed in the inner city.
A handsome man holding a long spear in his hand stood on the back of the Blazing Flame Divine Bird.
On top of the Tianfeng Palace in the Helian Residence, there stood a silver-haired man dressed in black cloak while carrying a black divine sword. One Emptiness Realm Expert was in the sky, and the other was on top of the palace. Their gazes clashed in the sky, and both had the intention to kill each other!
“The Martial Immortal will definitely win.”
“The ancestor will definitely win.”
TLN: Think about it. This guy has been alive for like four hundred years. So he must have kids, and his kids must have lots of kids. You know how in ancient China, the people marry early and have kids early? So it’s definitely possible for him to have GREAT GREAT GREAT GREAT GREAT GREAT GREAT x 10 GRANDKIDS. LOLOLOL. kthxbye.
The several ten thousand members of the Helian Clan watched on silently. Everyone↴—the white-haired elderly, young children, and even the babies who were held by their parents—were watching this fight, the great battle between Martial Immortals!
“It’s about to start!” At the Rising Sun Restaurant, the Dreamy Cloud Martial Immortals and the others smiled as they looked through the window at the sky above the Helian Residence.
Under the watch of over a million gazes, Teng Qingshan and the Tianfeng Martial Immortal stood in their own respective domains. Both of them could distinctly sense each other’s auras.
“It’s no wonder you dared to challenge me. You actually comprehended one more type of Dao.” In his own domain, the Tianfeng Martial Immortal could distinctly sense Teng Qingshan as a giant ball of fire formed with a ball of golden flames at the center. The hot fire and the dazzling golden glow shocked the Tianfeng Martial Immortal.
“What Dao did the Tianfeng Martial Immortal comprehend?” Teng Qingshan perceived the Tianfeng Martial Immortal as a gloomy ball formed by intense silver and grey lights.
The two scrutinized each other, and soon after…
“Clang!” The Tianfeng Martial Immortal drew out the black divine sword which he carried on his back, and a beam of light flickered in his eyes.
“Haha… Helian, take this!” Teng Qingshan suddenly leaped down from the Blue Luan and descended toward the Tianfeng Palace from a high altitude of several hundred Zhang. Simultaneously, a golden glow and fire pranced all over his entire body, making him look like a meteor falling toward the ground. Teng Qingshan even used the Power of the Heavens and the Earth to accelerate the descent!
The speed of the fall was so fast that even the heavens and the earth trembled.
A roar which sounded like the cry of a tiger rang out. Entwined by the golden flames, the long spear pierced through the heavens and the earth like a large electric drill. Along with the force of the fall, the unparalleled force pierced toward the Tianfeng Martial Immortal. The power of this spear immediately caused the several ten thousand clan members to turn pale in fright.
“Eek!” The Tianfeng Martial Immortal appeared horrifyingly sinister as he emitted a weird, high-pitched cry.
HIs sword was enveloped by the gray and gloomy yet dazzling glow. With a force that seemed to be able to tear the heavens and earth apart, the Tianfeng Martial Immortal forcefully blocked the strike of the long sword which descended from the sky.
“Boom~~~” The earth rumbled.
The Tianfeng Martial Immortal, who had originally been standing on top of the Tianfeng Palace, was blasted downward, smashing through three layers of the Tianfeng Palace and into the ground. Due to this crash, a horrifyingly huge hole appeared in the building. The terrifying attacks of the two Emptiness Realm Experts produced a fallout which crushed the entire Tianfeng Palace instantly. The Steel Sword Martial Saint, who had reached the peak of Innate Realm, escaped rapidly in embarrassment.
Everything within the several Zhang wide area was transformed into ruins. Before the aftermath of the Power of the Heavens and the Earth, the walls of the courtyard crumbled like bean curd. It completely collapsed, and the ground sank one Zhang down. Dust and smoke filled the air, while the accumulated snow was blasted away.
The clashing sounds of Teng Qingshan’s and the Tianfeng Martial Immortal’s weapons made many clan members cover their ears in pain.
Additionally, their eyes widened and their mouths agape.
Be it the one hundred thousand people within the Helian Residence or the millions of people gathered outside the Helian Residence, all of them were astounded.
This was what a fight between Martial Immortals was like?
Compared to this fight between Martial Immortals, the past scene of the travelling cultivator killing their opponent and causing blood to splash over a distance of five steps just seemed like a joke; something that wasn’t worth mentioning.
Teng Qingshan was also blasted back by the terrifying impact of the rebound, causing him to fly upward several Zhang.
“As expected, the Tianfeng Martial Immortal is very strong. This ‘Vermillion Metal Tiger Roar’ borrowed the force of the fall, yet he managed to defend against it.” Teng Qingshan descended onto the ground with his heart filled with surprise and admiration. Actually, the Tianfeng Martial Immortal could have just dodged the strike, but because he was proud and looked down on Teng Qingshan, he didn’t dodge.
As such, a direct clash between the strongest strengths occurred.
“Whoosh!” Enveloped by a cold glow, the Tianfeng Martial Immortal burst out from beneath the earth and stood on the ground.
“Teng Qingshan, I didn’t expect you to possess control of 60%,” the Tianfeng Martial Immortal said in a cold voice.
However, Teng Qingshan immediately noticed the bloodstains on the cloak beneath the glow which enveloped the Tianfeng Martial Immortal.
“Helian, I borrowed the force of the fall and performed this strike, yet you dared to block against it forcefully. Now, you are probably heavily injured.” Teng Qingshan’s imposing manner grew even more intense. The strength of both their strongest attacks was similar. Now, one was attacking after a fall from an altitude of several hundred Zhang, while the other was defending forcefully from the same spot. It was obvious who had a disadvantage.
The Tianfeng Martial Immortal scanned the surroundings and said to himself, “I didn’t expect Teng Qingshan to be this powerful. Even if I defeat him today, the Helian Residence would turn into ruins and almost half of my several ten thousand clan members would die.”
The Tianfeng Martial Immortal had originally thought he would definitely win. Therefore, he had taken up the challenge in Tianfeng City.
However, the current situation showed that if the fight continued here, the entire Helian Residence would probably soon turn into ruins.
“Haha, Teng Qingshan. We can’t fight freely here. Let’s go out and fight,” the Tianfeng Martial Immortal’s voice resounded. He moved swiftly in a weird manner, instantly leaving a gloomy and glowing afterimage. The members of the Helian Clan only blinked once before they lost sight of the Tianfeng Martial Immortal.
“Helian, you are afraid, aren’t you? You sure fled quickly,” Teng Qingshan guffawed. Enveloped by golden flames, Teng Qingshan moved, and each of his steps covered a distance of one Li.
Teng Qingshan’s speed was even faster than ‘Close yet Worlds Apart,’ the highest level of the 《Crossing World》
One of the two great and powerful experts was fleeing, while the other pursued him.
“Did you say I was escaping?” The Martial Immortal had already left the Helian Residence and entered the east region of the Tianfeng City. He suddenly turned around, and in a weird motion, he instantly approached and encircled Teng Qingshan.
“So fast.” Teng Qingshan was shocked. He immediately turned and defended against the intense strike of the Tianfeng Martial Immortal’s sword.
The Tianfeng Martial Immortal had actually changed his direction through an impossible angle. He moved in an arc, and the instant he arrived behind Teng Qingshan, he borrowed the force of his motion. The power of the black godly sword in his hand was immediately increased drastically to the limit.
“Oh, no.” Teng Qingshan had no time to perform the Vermillion Metal Tiger Roar. He could only defend with the move, ‘Transmutation Unity Qi.
His 《Earth Element Fist》 had only reached the eighth move, while both his 《Metal Element Fist》 and his 《Fire Element Fist》 had already reached their final moves. However, in terms of defense, although his 《Earth Element Fist》 had only reached the eighth move, the defense of Transmutation Unity Qi was still stronger than that of the other two types of Dao.
Teng Qingshan was caught off-guard. Like a meteorite, he crashed into the wall of a rich man’s mansion. He then smashed into the rock garden and a few rooms. Over half of the mansion was instantly destroyed. Teng Qingshan immediately flipped over and stood up from amidst the ruins.
“Eh?” Teng Qingshan isn’t hurt?” The Tianfeng Martial immortal was extremely shocked and said to himself, “Previously, in Tianfeng City, he clashed with me directly. The impact of the rebound was so forceful that even with the protection of the Power of the Heavens and the Earth, I still coughed up blood. This time, he wasn’t prepared. Therefore, he should be more heavily injured than me.
TLN: I will cough water for you.
The body of an Emptiness Realm Expert was very weak. Although the body had been nurtured by the Power of the Heavens and Earth, it was already considered good if the physical strength could reach up to several thousand Jin.
However, Teng Qingshan’s body could be compared to the godly swords and the trenchant weapons.
It would be hard to shake Teng Qingshan with a force which could make him cough blood?
“Helian, your dodging and weaving body art is really not bad.” Teng Qingshan walked out from the ruins. His face appeared slightly red as he said, “However, it is useless against me.
“The speed of your dodging and weaving is obviously slower than mine. You were able to dodge my sword once. Let’s see how much more you can dodge.”
The Tianfeng Martial Immortal’s body instantly transformed into seven to eight streaks of flowing light, entwining around Teng Qingshan. Although it appeared to be seven or eight streaks, there was only one streak of light. It looked like this because the Tianfeng Martial immortal was dodging in an unpredictable manner within a small area at an extremely fast speed. Teng Qingshan’s 《Water Element Fist》 had only reached the sixth move, therefore, his Swimming Pisces Body Art couldn’t compete with Tianfeng Martial Immortal’s body art.
“It’s useless!” Teng Qingshan guffawed.
He grasped the Reincarnation Spear and thrust it out at lightning speed. The weird thing was that Teng Qingshan’s arms were like noodles, capable of attacking from different unfathomable angles instantly.
Furthermore, Teng Qingshan’s waist could allow his body to turn 360 degrees, reaching its limit. The flexibility of Teng Qingshan’s body was even stronger than the Ancient Yoga Grandmaster. His body and limbs could attack from unimaginable angles, which complemented Teng Qingshan’s weakness, which was having a slow evasion speed.
Teng Qingshan was capable of not only blocking against every strike but of threatening his opponent as well!
The Tianfeng Martial Immortal transformed into a gust of black wind as he surrounded Teng Qingshan and attacked repeatedly. Everywhere that the two passed while fighting turned into ruins! The Emptiness Realm Experts possessed endless amounts of the Power of the Heavens and the Earth and inexhaustible Innate True Origin. So, they could fight without any of those worries. At this moment, the houses of the wealthy people, the restaurants, and stores had all become ruins.
The two Martial Immortals were like two gods fighting.
“Oh, no. If this continues, how many people will die?” Teng Qingshan roared.
With a twirl, he performed a strike of the move, Toxic Dragon Drill, forcing the Tianfeng Martial Immortal backward. Teng Qingshan then hastily performed his Qing Gong, then with a flash, he appeared one Li away.
“Helian, let’s fight outside the city.”
“You must be afraid! You want to escape, don’t you?!”
The Tianfeng Martial Immortal pursued Teng Qingshan hastily.
The two Martial Immortals dashed and fought simultaneously.
“Rumble~~” The east wall of the Tianfeng City trembled and rumbled. A hole several Zhang wide appeared on the tall, thick, and great wall, and numerous crushed stones flew in all directions. When the numerous people watching from the east side of Tianfeng City saw the several dozen Zhang wide hole, they were shocked.
Clashes which sounded like the heavens were falling and the earth was rending resonated outside the city.
“Outside the city!”
“Quick go outside the city.”
The crazy Martial Cultivators dashed outside, hoping to see the greatest battle they could imagine. Recklessly, all of them performed Qing Gong and rushed out the city.
