Chapter 35: Not Lost
Because Zhang Yi’s sword was so bright and clear, when it appeared in everyone’s sight, it appeared to be made from the most perfect jade in the world . But when the first line of light made contact with his sword, and the light dimmed, it was like a mark had been etched onto his sword . The mark revealed the original stone color, and the lingering energies fell like dust from cut stone . As more glowing lines of light collided with his little sword, the glowing sword grew dimmer as though it was turning back from jade to stone .
Yet no one scolded Zhang Yi right now .
Even Murong Xiaoyi was looking at Zhang Yi and his sword with shock and even awe . Even she could sense his sword … this stab was very strong .
She sensed the profound seal essence but could not understand . She could notunderstand how Zhang Yi’s sword was stabbed forward without any technique, but still could met every line of light coming at him .
She could not understand yet Le Yi from Yellow Heaven Daoist Sect could .
Because Zhang Yi’s sword essence seemed to cover the entire world . His thoughts and sword essence were all straight, yet they managed to forcibly change the flow and rules of primal energies of the universe in this area . His body and his sword also gave off a presence he was familiar with .
So as Zhang Yi’s sword slowed and grew dimmer, changing back into an ordinary stone sword, his expression grew more serious . The power accumulated in his body surged forward without reservation into the glowing lights .
Zhang Yi’s expression did not change . His stone sword grew dimmer, but in his perception, the light in his energy sea grew brighter and hotter .
Following his thoughts, the light filling his energy sea flowed out along his meridians and surged into his stone sword . His dim stone sword lit up again .
The heavy atmosphere was dissipated by waves of gasps . Many people stopped breathing and looked in disbelief at Zhang Yi’s sword .
In their senses, what Zhang Yi gave off now was not vital energy but seals . To their incomprehension, these seals were unlike ordinary true seals that would only display their destructive power after being activated by vital energy .
The seals coming off Zhang Yi’s body were themselves power directly channeled into the sword! The almost still stone sword continued to shine and then advanced!
Le Yi took a deep breath and looked in admiration at Zhang Yi and his sword . He admired not just because Zhang Yi could comprehend such seal essences and produce such a powerful blow . He could not imagine him creating such a powerful attack while maintaining his posture in the face of the scorn of his classmates .
He knew that right now, he and Zhang Yi were competing purely in cultivation and resolve . So he did not hold back at all . All the glowing lines coming off his body flew towards the other against the incoming sword .
Zhang Yi’s sword immediately produced dust and smoke . His arm and entire body trembled fiercely . As he instinctively pondered if his body could tolerate this, blood already spilled from his lips .
The light in his stone sword immediately disappeared . All the grand appearances immediately returned to earth . His sword turned into an ordinary and small stone sword .
Ahead of the sword were multiple lines of light . In everyone’s imagination, if this sword advanced, this sword would be cut, and Zhang Yi would endure unimaginable injury .
Yet Zhang Yi did not retreat .
To him, both Min Mountain Sword Sect’s sword essence and the seal essence he comprehended at Celestial Seal Sect were material things he could use . But his sword and his resolve were himself and his life .
He decisively stabbed towards the last few lines of light . Enormous forces cut on the stone sword in his hand .
Multiple clouds of dust rose . Everyone stopped breathing when no mark was left on this ordinary looking sword .
Zhang Yi’s body shook multiple times and he vomited blood, his boots split open, feet rubbed against the gravel on the ground and created a bloody mist . But at the same time, a wave of pleasure formed within him .
The sword essence of his attack was finally at ease, and the material item became bonded to him . In this breath, his life connected with the sword in hand .
This sword finally turned from Xue Wangxu’s sword to his sword . Piety, respect, nostalgia, protection, inheritance … all kinds of strong emotions turned this sword into his . A powerful and new presence rippled from the blade .
At this time, the pair of old eyes watching Zhang Yi from high up in the mountain finally filled with emotion and admiration . Some sincere sighs also sounded left and right of the owner of these eyes .
The sword essence of Min Mountain Sword Sect, the seal path moves of Celestial Seal Sect, the sword of White Goat Cave . They merged into one on this humble youth .
The sky above Le Yi’s head split apart, turning into countless yellow streams of energy moving outwards .
He could not stand upright and fell to the ground . All of the injuries he had endured in consecutive battles erupted out now . He sprayed a mouthful of blood which appeared bright in the falling sunlight .
Zhang Yi’s sword continued to advance, flicking upwards like a curved goat’s horn flicking up in front of Le Yi . The sword light left clear marks in the air .
Zhang Yi put his sword away and looked apologetically at Le Yi on the ground .
Le Yi felt sorrow, but seeing Zhang Yi who also was covered in blood, his gaze was respectful .
“I …” He prepared to admit defeat, convinced .
When he said the first word, Murong Xiaoyi and all of Zhang Yi’s classmates had very complicated emotions .
Murong Xiaoyi looked unblinkingly at Zhang Yi . She was filled with shock and felt ashamed thinking of her previous attitude towards him .
“I forfeit . ”
To everyone’s surprise, Zhang Yi spoke before Le Yi and said, “I lost … much of my attack did not originate from Celestial Seal Sect . ”
Murong Xiaoyi’s eyes were wide . She could not speak and did not know what to say .
Just now, Zhang Yi was undoubtedly Celestial Seal Sect’s hero . If he stood there and accepted the forfeit, he would be the hero of Celestial Seal Sect and the target of admiration from all young students . Including her!
If Celestial Seal Sect lost, they had to give up their sect . But now, Zhang Yi had forfeited . She could not understand but for some reason, she did not hate Zhang Yi right now . A strange feeling spread through her body .
Le Yi stilled . He had been interrupted from what he wanted to say . His expression turned serious .
He stood up and looked gravely at Zhang Yi, saying, “Winning is winning, losing is losing . Regardless of your attack, you come from Celestial Seal Sect so you are a disciple of Celestial Seal Sect . So … I still admit defeat . ”
The noise in the surroundings disappeared immediately . Many Celestial Seal Sect students, especially Zhang Yi’s classmates, felt great guilt . They thought unconsciously, from when they had seen him, they had felt natural repulsion and never looked at him like he was a Celestial Seal Sect disciple like them .
Zhang Yi looked at Le Yi and felt great respect . He also did not know what to say .
At this time, an aged voice came from the mountain path . “None of you has lost . ”
Hearing this voice, Zhang Yi’s eyes widened in disbelief and he instinctively turned around .Please download our sponsor's game to support us!
