Xu Ye kept quiet.
“That was what I saw.”
Xu An Zhong was sitting down and taking food from the table, and gobbling it down. After standing guard outsidethe city for the past few days, he hid himself in the mountains, just to shadow Echo Hill Castle, he slept and ateoutdoors, and if not for him having trained bitterly before, he might not had been able to take it.
After a long while, Xu Ye opened his mouth: “You’re saying, that was Lu Tian Wen?”
This information had greatly spooked him, to the point that he had difficulty swallowing it down.
“Yes.” Xu An Zhong replied ambiguously. He was somewhat pleased as he admired to shock on his older brother. Tilldate, his brother had always been the smartest, almost as if he could foresee the future, and he never ever thoughtthat he would ever witness his older brother revealing a strange and shocked face. His brother always smiled faintlyand was unfathomable, as well as being extremely profound.
Xu An Zhong had long digested the shock in his mind.
He sipped on a glass of water and stopped for a moment, then said: “That was Thunder Wind Spear Lu Tian Wen, Idefinitely saw it! Only that Thunder Wind Spear can be so destructive, to the point that even I dare not go close, andcould only watch from afar. Rank 39 on the List of Powerhouse, truly ferocious!”
When Xu An Zhong said the two words ‘truly ferocious’, he spoke it through gritted teeth.
The battle had greatly affected him, regardless if it was Lu Tian Wen or Ghost Face Mask, both their strengths farsurpassed his.
After his recent closed door training, his strength had took a qualitative leap, although on the surface he remainedcalm without revealing anything, but in his heart, he was filled with unprecedented self confidence. In the past, healways thought that he would never be unable to catch up with his brother, but currently, he could see his back view.
After he witnessed the powerful battle between the two,&nbs
p;all of his self confidence instantly disappeared into smoke.He thought that his sword heart was as tough as steel, but now he could only laugh bitterly at it, so when he saw theshock on his brother’s face, he felt that his already broken sword heart had recovered slightly.
As expected, happiness came from comparison.
“Tell me everything in detail.” Xu Ye’s expression was extremely serious, as though a calamity was about to strike.
Xu An Zhong thought about it in another way, if Lu Tian Wen were to rush up their doors, Purple Cuckoo City, otherthan the Qin Family, no one would not be able to escape his grasp.
“When Lu Tian Wen appeared, he did not have any intention to hide himself, and attacked the Echo Hill Castledirectly. The first one to stop him was Han Bing Ning. Han Bing Ning exchanged around 10 moves with him beforesustaining an injury.’
Upon thinking of Han Bing Ning, Xu An Zhong was immediately filled with respect towards her, under that immensepressure, yet she was able to persist for so long, although the other party was a lady, but she had the heart of aswordsman.
“She exchanged more than 10 moves with Lu Tian Wen?” Xu Ye’s expression was strange.
“Yes.” Xu An Zhong squinted and thought about it carefully, before confirming: “16 moves.”
‘16? Are you sure he is Lu Tian Wen?”
Xu Ye’s expression could no longer be expressed with the word weird.
At that moment, Xu An Zhong understood how his older brother felt, Yes, a random person jumped out and foughtoff 16 attacks coming from Lu Tian Wen, that was something people would find it hard to accept.
After being quiet for a long time, Xu Ye then asked again with difficulty: “After that?”
“After that, it was Ghost Face Mask’s turn.” Xu An Zhong recalled the scene of that day, and his voice involuntarilytrembled slightly: “He wielded a blade. At that time, I felt that it was strange, because Ghost Face Mask never used ablade. He suddenly appeared beside Han Bing Ning and took over, and then slashed towards Lu Tian Wen’s spear.The attack was balanced, and then Ghost Face Mask threw Han Bing Ning to safety. He suddenly turned andappeared in front of Lu Tian Wen and threw another blade. That blade was extremely strange, as though it was heldhigh up naturally and then dropped without any additional force, almost like a, almost like a guillotine.”
Xu An Zhong’s fingers, which were on his knees, trembled slightly, which even he did not realise.
Xu Ye listened extremely attentively, he was able to imagine the fight scene, and within Xu An Zhong’s tremblingvoice, he could sense an indescribable fear and anxiousness.
Xu An Zhong stopped, he kept quiet, and the vein at his forehead and hand would twitch once in awhile, one couldsee that his heart was thumping quickly. He tried his best to control his emotions, but he was unable to struggle freefrom the impact of watching the fight.
Xu Ye did not make a sound, he could see Xu An Zhong’s struggle, and he himself was overwhelmed by shock.
After maintaining silence for five minutes, Xu An Zhong’s dry voice came out: “Lu Tian Wen was sent flying.”
Xu Ye was startled, and then opened his eyes wide: “Lu Tian Wen was sent flying?”
“Yes.” Xu An Zhong took a deep breath and continued: “He flew all the way out. Ghost Face Mask’s body appeared totake a step back, but he suddenly shot forward, not fly, remember, but shot forward! His strange footwork, the airbeneath his feet compressed into something like a bowl, and when he stepped on them, he would borrow themomentum to rush forward. It was extremely fast! To the point that I could not see him! He shot forward to Lu TianWen and slashed out the second time.”
At this time, Xu An Zhong’s voice was no longer trembling, he stood up, his face flushed slightly red, his voice filledwith some excitement: “The blade came from bottom up, as though it could even slice through the sky. Lu TianWen’s reaction was extremely fast, his second spear was also very ferocious, along with a vortex, the blade andspear collided. This time, Ghost Face Mask was at the disadvantage and was sent flying out, Lu Tian Wen was evenmore miserable, he was drilled directly into a mountain.”
Xu Ye was dumbstruck, ~drilled directly into a mountain….~
“At that time, Lu Tian Went went berserk, he rushed out, and all around him, there was wind and thunder, and at hisspear tip, he released ripples, causing all the wind and thunder to condense, and then he thrusted out. Ghost FaceMask raised his blade, but he had a very strange aura around him….”
Xu An Zhong spoke very quickly, along with his red face and hands flying wildly, he looked like a lunatic.
“Lu Tian Wen’s spear, seemed to fly towards Ghost Face Mask’s blade, the blade shattered, but Lu Tian Wen’s spearaura suddenly swelled up like a balloon. Bang, it exploded! Lu Tian Wen was instantly charred black, while half ofGhost Face Mask’s body was also almost destroyed. Then did you know what I saw? I saw Ghost Face Mask’swounds quickly healing and growing….”
“Life Laws!” Xu Ye was beyond shock this time, his face was so distorted that his face would have permanentlybecome disfigured if it went any further. He himself trained in the Life and Death Laws, so he was not unfamiliartowards Life Laws.
~How is that possible…..~
“That’s right, he used Life Laws, hahahaha…..”
Xu An Zhong laughed like a lunatic, his face was completely red now, he suddenly spat out blood and fell to theground, his face as white as paper.
Xu Ye’s face changed, he placed his hand on Xu An Zhong’s forehead and sent in a bit of Life laws into Xu An Zhong.After that, he heaved a sigh of relief, Xu An Zhong was safe, and it was better for him to have spat out the blood thannot.
~But, the battle actually made an expert like Xu An Zhong to be bedevilled…..~
(TN: I think people would come to know 心魔 as a heart demon in other novels, but I would use bedevilled as itmeans that he is being tormented by it.)
Xu Ye was completely shocked.
After a long while, the shock gradually disappeared, and he went into deep thoughts.
~Seems like, many things have to be re–planned again.~
Echo Hill Castle was burning hot.
Scarlet red molten steel poured out of the furnace, following an aqueduct that was dug prior, it flowed into manymolds.
Whoosh, water was poured onto them, the blood red blade body calmed down, and the water sizzled.
“There is no need to polish it or grind the edges, we need to hurry, get another furnace.”
Ming Zhu rolled up her sleeves, her face was covered in soot, all the Xue Family were females, and she had no otherchoice but to get them to smelt the weapons. Everyone knew that they were in a predicament, and withoutcomplaining or whining, all of these delicate ladies buried their head in the work.
Luckily for them, it was the simplest method of smelting, otherwise, Ming Zhu and the girls would not have theability to do so.
Although it was rather tough work, but fortunately, the group of delicate ladies used large carriages to carry theBoard Guillotine Blades to the training grounds, and could speak with confidence: “These are made by us workinghard and painfully, you guys cannot lose, ok!”
When have the group of powerful men ever received such treatment, the flirtatious words of the ladies instantlyaroused a layer of goosebumps on their bodies, and their fighting intent soared all over, like raging flames. All ofthem picked up the door sized Board Guillotine Blades and patted their chests, sounding like metal striking metal,their domineering and lofty nonsenses all started coming up, all the weird punishments, all the slicing and dicing, allthe beating the enemies to a pulp, their morale were greatly boosted.
Of course, Tang Tian was not so vulgar, he only had Qian Hui in mind.
He was thinking on how to bring the Heavy Demonic Execution into a hand blade technique.
Although it would lack the advantage of a weapon, but a fist and a palm’s movements were much more intimate and smooth, and Tang Tian felt that his own body was stronger than any average weapon.
As for mimicking blades with his hands, Tang Tian was extremely familiar with it, in the past, there was an old man who said he was suitable to become a Close Quarters Combat Expert, although he still had not realised it yet, but his skills at close quarters combat had truly gotten much stronger.
Finger techniques, palm techniques, kicking techniques, consecutive and connecting attacks, these were martialtechniques that he was the best at.
After trying it out for a couple of times, Tang Tian found a knack to doing it.
But there was a great difference between a real blade and a hand blade technique, after testing it out many times, hecould completely use his hand as a blade, but Tang Tian still felt that there was an awkward feeling.
~Why do I feel like this?~
Tang Tian pondered extremely hard, he quickly found the problem, it was the final variation.
A real blade’s final variation would be the locking of the wrist, while the final variation of a hand blade was thefingers. That meant that, using a real blade to use Heavy Demonic Execution was perfect. But using his hand blade touse Heavy Demonic Execution, there was still space for variations.
It was Tang Tian’s first time encountering such a situation, additional space for variations would cause people to beat a loss.
It was the problem of having a bowl too big that one will never be able to fill it up completely with rice.
But Tang Tian did not want to waste the additional space for additional variations, because it meant that there wasstill leeway. Fights between experts usually depended on a slight line of mistakes.
A hand blade was much more suitable to unleash the Heavy Demonic Execution than a real blade, but only Tang Tian could do it, because of his extremely strong physique, his hand was able to utilize the Origin Force in his body, but if it was another person using his hand to unleash the technique, his hand would be like a balloon that over expanded, and exploded.
Tang Tian became immersed in it.
He still had not gain any enlightenment towards [Sacrificial Execution] and [Demonic Desolate Execution]. Herealised, by starting from [Devil, I, execution], every slash would no longer require just technique, but requiredconforming the focus to correspond with the technique.
He was able to use [Devil, I, Execution], which was by experiencing the blank state of mind that was void of struggleand entanglement, by conforming his state of mind to the technique, he was able to allow the Origin Force in hisbody to reach a strange state of equilibrium, which was like the sunlight piercing through the dark clouds after astorm, revealing the calm after the storm.
That was why the power of his blade was able to enter Lu Tian Wen’s spear aura before exploding.
Tang Tian did not know how to describe it, but he was able to experience his Origin Force conforming with his stateof mind, which allowed the Heavy Demonic Execution to attain its brilliance.
The Heavy Demonic Execution was not as simple as he thought, as even the descendants of the Xue Family also lostthe way to use it. Simply look, Tang Tian could only speculate on the last two techniques, he knew that their powerwas not small either, and that the power that he could currently unleash still paled in comparison to the twotechniques.
~What is Sacrificial? What is Demonic Desolation? I can’t understand them.~
Tang Tian firmly believed in practising over and over again, to him, geniuses practised their thoughts and their mind,but the godlike young lad always used his muscles to learn.
~Perspiration will never lie, yes, the body will always be truthful!~
