Chapter 904 - Ah Xin Requests to Battle
Translated by: Berrrybunz

The storm of sword lights continued for a full ten minutes, and after the last sword light shattered, the entire world seemed to have suddenly quieted down.
The dazzling shattered auras lit up the Ocean of Peace, the deadly beauty had become extremely calm. Unknowingly, everyone had held onto their breaths, afraid that they would break the silence.
Only Qiu Tian Qing's pupils were constricted, he had sensed danger.
The aura had changed slightly, it was obviously peaceful and calm, however, for some reason, Qiu Tian Qing's sense towards danger had not lessen, but instead increased. Qiu Tian Qing knew that something was wrong. He looked around carefully, but did not notice anything out of the ordinary, the Ocean of Peace waves were calm, the surface of the water was bright and clean, resembling a black mirror.
The unease in Qiu Tian Qing's heart became even more intense.
Inside the trading ship, Ah Xin wiped away the tears from his eyes, he stood up, as though nothing had happened.
Regardless if it is being moved or hurt, regardless if it is a longing or a hope, these feelings are for oneself, not for others, and not for others to know, everything that one feels, should always be for oneself, for the true longing in one's heart.
Aside from Qian Hui and Xiao Man, no one knew that inside the trading ship in the distance, there was an old young man that had lost his voice while crying bitterly. Even if they knew, they might not be able to understand, ten thousand years was simply too long, too long that one could witness the transformations of the world, too long that things might have remained the same, yet the people had changed, so long that promises could be destroyed.
~Who would be so idle? One would already have his hands full with one life, how could they tolerate so many years.~
An old monster that had experienced ten thousand years, with the grief and emotions that went on and on, if Bing and Screw were to know about it, who knew if they could accept it.
Upon thinking about how his devastated appearance had been witnessed by the busty lady with the blade, Ah Xin felt sad. ~It's over, it's over, I will be ridiculed by her, I wonder when will I be able to gain back my image.~
~How can the busty lady ever understand such delicate emotions~, he mourned in his heart. ~Sigh, how will I ever show my face in front of her from now on? Such a headache.~
All of these thoughts went through his mind, but his heart calmed down.
He suddenly bowed respectfully to Qian Hui: "This subordinate requests to go to battle!"
The obsession of his former comrades were present in front of him, all of them had wasted the precious Ocean of Peace, causing him to have the urge to beat them up.
Qian Hui did not say anything, but looked straight at Ah Xin earnestly.
Ah Xin had a bright smile that resembled the sun, with a slightly frivolous and anticipated look, without a trace of sorrow.
Although the Ah Xin in front of her looked not much different from how he was ordinarily, Qian Hui could feel that he was serious and longing to go to battle. Ah Xin and Xiao Man were Qian Hui's right hand and left hands, and she understood them very well. Xiao Man loved to fight, but Ah Xin did not have any passion or excitement towards battle, if he did not have to fight, he would not fight. If he could spend 10 minutes to resolve a battle, he would never spend 20.
It was the first time he had initiated to go to battle.
After thinking about how Ah Xin had cried and wailed previously, Qian Hui did not hesitate: "Alright!"
"Thank you, young miss!" Ah Xin bowed respectfully to Qian Hui.
When they had first met, he was defeated and held hostage by Qian Hui, before choosing to join her as a subordinate, but willingness was out of the question. Qian Hui's standard in controlling a battle earned his respect, but it was not enough for him to surrender his loyalty, it was just that he did not want to disappear from the world.
~I have already lived for so long, before finding the answer, dying is not worth it.~
That led to a common occurence where he would do his job, but would not put effort, and compared to Xiao Man, he was not qualified at all. But what surprised him was that Qian Hui was never unhappy with him because of it.
Qian Hui was firm and independent, she had her own view point, and practically ignored his irresponsibility.
Xiao Man frequently found trouble with him was most probably because of that. The difference between them was that Xiao Man was loyal to Qian Hui.
When he thought about that, he felt embarrassed. He never thought that when he requested to go to battle, Qian Hui would actually agree instantly. Ah Xin understood that regardless of what reason it was, the understanding itself was something rare to see.
His gratitude to her was from the bottom of his heart.
Xiao Man's face turned cold, she snorted: "If you throw our face in front of our in-law, you can just slit your own throat."
Qian Hui, who stood there coldly like a Goddess of War right from the start, had her face flush red upon hearing what Xiao Man said, she glanced at Xiao Man, but did not say a word.
Ah Xin laughed out loud, upon thinking about showing off his noble aspirations, he was interrupted by Xiao Man: "If you want to go, then go, stop dawdling!"
Ah Xin's laugh was cut shot, he then cleared his throat.
Suddenly, a thunderous roar exploded out from the distance: "To actually dare go against the rules of the Holy Bell in Saint Continent, and to attack the Prestigious Qiu Family. Still trying to act sneakily, why are you not surrendering yourselves!"
An army that looked like fiery clouds flew over.
The generals and soldiers of the army were donned in furious red capes, all of their expressions were cold and indifferent, and anyone could tell from one look that they were warriors that had gone through hundreds of battles. The military general in the lead had a robust and domineering body, with a squarish face and thick eyebrows, the most prominent part about him was his fiery red hair.
Red light flashed in the sky, as though meteors were soaring down from space.
The sky about 300m away from Tang Tian suddenly exploded, with fiery serpents dancing all around. When the fiery light dissipated, the army appeared, revealing their true faces.
"General Qiu!" The robust man in the lead bowed at Qiu Tian Qing.
Qiu Tian Qing bowed slightly: "I never thought that such a small matter would actually call for General Huo. But this battle is a personal grievance related to my Qiu Family, I hope that General will not intervene."
General Huo spoke uprightly: "The Holy Bell has rung, and we are in a dire situation where everyone has a great undertaking, the Qiu Family is a huge pillar to our Honorable Martial Continent, how can we let such small fries delay you here?"
Qiu Tian QIng hesitated for a moment, he understood what the other party was saying. The other party had made his intentions clear, at such a crucial moment, no one should be causing other issues, and if there were any struggles, they should be dealt with quickly.
Qiu Tian Qing knew that their conspiracy was extremely huge, furthermore…..
He glanced at Tang Tian, and a sneer appeared on his face, he nodded his head: "General, be careful, they are not the Honorable Martial Banner of Knights."
Right from the start, he suspected that they were the Banner of Knights. Both parties had resentment towards each other, Sophie had been abundantly clear when she raised her blade at the Qiu Family, which also led to his mistake.
But upon crossing hands, he understood that the other party were not the Banner of Knights.
Holy Flame, he did not sense any traces of the Holy Flame, if the opponents were the Banner of Knights, it was impossible. Holy Flame was the source of power for any Knight, and in such an intense battle, it was impossible to disguise it.
Tang Tian was startled, he never expected that Qiu Tian Qing would realize that they were not the Banner of Knights. It meant that their plan to disguise as the Banner of Knights to stir trouble had gone to dust.
General Huo stared coldly at him, and spoke indifferently: "To dare pass yourselves off as the Banner of Knights, your guilt has just increased! Today, even Temple can't save you!"
Right at that moment, a chuckle sounded out from the hostile battlefield, which could be heard from anywhere.
"Who said that we were pretending to be the Banner of Knights?"
A spirit general had unknowingly appeared near Tang Tian.
Ah Xin took his time, leisurely walking in mid air, with a heck care attitude: "We are the Iron Mask Army of the Mace Field Family. The Qiu Family and our Mace Field Family has grievances, that I do not need to say. Or could it be that your distinguished self wants to intervene?
Qiu Tian Qing and General Huo were both startled.
~Mace Field Family?~
They had thought of all sorts of possibilities, but they never thought that it would be the Mace Field Family. A low level Prestigious Family had ran to a top rated Prestigious Family to say that they have grievances.
That completely toppled their common sense, it was too absurd.
~Since when have the small prestigious families dare to go against a top rate Prestigious Family?~
~And, since when, has a low level small Prestigious Family actually have such a powerful army?~
On the trading ship, Xiao Man was furious: "Isn't he very clever usually? Why did he reveal our identities?"
Qian Hui's eyes sparkled, she chuckled: "I feel that he handled it rather well. Since we can't pass off as the Banner of Knights, then the name of Mace Field Family is the next most suitable. Ah Xin's mind is truly working very quickly."
XIao Man's eyes flashed with a look of joy, but she snorted: "Lucky guy."
Qian Hui took a glance at Xiao Man and giggled, but did not say a word.
Xiao Man instantly felt uncomfortable, and whined: "Young Miss, what is that expression of yours?"
Qian Hui blinked her eyes: "Take a guess."
Xiao Man frowned.
In the air, General Huo did not believe Ah Xin's words, he sneered: "Truly, if one doesn't see his own coffin, he will not shed tears, you're still not willing to give up at such a time and want to make things even more complicated, you're seeking death!"
Ah Xin was not afraid at all, he bowed at Tang Tian: "In-law, I wonder if you can hand that sword and this battle over to this subordinate?"
Tang Tian thought about Ah Xin and Bing's relationship, and thought about their identities as people from the Southern Cross Army, and realized something. ~That's right, this sword contains the auras of Ah Xin's comrades.~
Without saying a word, he threw the Undying Sword over to Ah Xin: "It's yours from now on."
Ah Xin trembled, he caught the Undying Sword clumsily. Even if Tang Tian had used it for a short moment, everyone could tell that the sword was not ordinary. Tang Tian actually gave the sword to him….
Ah Xin looked at Tang Tian, although he could not see Tang Tian's expression which was hidden behind the mask, but his eyes were as clear as water.
Tang Tian truly did not have any hesitation when he gave the sword, it was an instinctive move.
Tang Tian's emotions towards the Undying Sword was mostly shock towards their obsession. He was respectful and felt honored and excited to be able to fight with the seniors, but he knew that the legend was theirs, the conviction was theirs, the emotions belonged to them, to the Southern Cross Army.
~I want to create my own legend, I want to write my own convictions~. Right from the start, that was how Tang Tian was. Even though he had inherited many things from the Southern Cross Army, but he had never felt that he was living to revive the Southern Cross Army.
His legacies were Ursa Major Constellation, Three Spirits City, Southern Alliance, and the Godlike Young Man!
His companions were Bing, Crane, Little Xu Xu, Big Brother Jing Hao, Sai Lei, Pi Pa, Bell…..
~I am not alone at all, and I don't have to be envious of others!~
The emotions invoked by the sword did not belong to him, but to Ah Xin, that was why Tang Tian felt that it was right to hand the sword over to Ah Xin, and the Undying Sword would be happy as well.
Ah Xin bowed respectfully to Tang Tian, and spoke: "I request in-law to support my rear."
With that said, he held onto Undying Sword and stepped onto the Ocean of Peace.

With one step, his figure turned blurry. Ah Xin landed on the Ocean of Peace.
He had a complicated look, solemn, excitement, emotional, reminiscent, his heart had a thousand of emotions, but all of which flashed past his eyes before he regained his tranquility, and he became as calm as water.
The anger in Qiu Tian Qing's heart soared.
He had fought with an unknown man to a stalemate for too long and did not win, and most of the time, he was the one under pressure. This made the arrogant Qiu Tian Qing extremely furious. And the sudden emergence of the Huo Family who stated they were there to help added fuel to the fire.
Qiu Tian Qing did not want the help from the Huo Family at all, he had confidence that he could destroy the enemies. ~If I can't even handle these unknown people and request help from the Huo Family, what will it say about me? If they are truly who they say they are, how much face will I be throwing away!~
~To be unable to handle a small prestigious family, what kind of first rate prestigious family are we? What is worse is that this will make the others think that our Qiu Family is weak, for them to lose confidence in us at such a crucial period, it will undoubtedly be a huge hit for our family.~
~One careless move and the whole game will be lost.~
But after thinking about it over and over again, for the sake of the grand plan, Qiu Tian Qing suppressed the rage in his heart, and accepted the Huo Family's help. He had to admit that taking care of Temple was the most important matter.
Although he had agreed to the Huo Family, Qiu Tian Qing still held anger in his heart. In that moment when he saw how the opponent's main general leave the battlefield and allowed his spirit general subordinate replace him, he could not suppress the anger in his heart.
Who did not know of Qiu Tian Qing, who had gone through hundreds of battle and was famous all around? Which enemy of his would not tremble in fear when going into battle against his powerful army?
Since when, had some random person looked down on him?
Qiu Tian Qing took a deep breath, his facial expression turned sinister: "If I do not cut your corpses into pieces today, I am not Qiu Tian Qing!"
All of his subordinates behind him trembled in fear, they knew that the Master was truly infuriated.
Qiu Tian Qing was not joking, the atmosphere instantly changed, and the endless Autumn laws inside the Qiu Offense Institute started to revolve. ~Clang clang clang~, chain like sounds suddenly appeared as the thin layer of frost on the ground suddenly broke apart as though something was dragged through it.
The mist in the Institute started to shrink, and the Institute that was initially shrouded by the mist appeared once more. When everyone looked at the Institute, they were surprised.
Every soldier of the Qiu Offense Army was equipped with grey armor with faint gold lines. All of their faces were pale white and expressionless, with a grey mist churning in their eyes. Every single soldier emitted a faint coldness, and within a radius of seven inches of their feet, autumn frost could be seen, their bodies emitting extreme killing intent.
Ji Ze's pupils instantly constricted, Law Armor!
In the Sin Domain, Law Armors were common. In truth, armors produced by Laws were the most common occurrence. But, for the most common method to reach into the half step law Domain, that was rarely seen. The gold lines on their armors were casted by Laws.
Ji Ze had never seen so many soldiers being able to produce the same armor before. But his eyes were sharper than the rest, he was able to tell that the grey armors were not ordinary, as though there was an invisible connection between them.
He thought about the chain like sounds.
Ah Xin acted as though he did not see the transformation within Qiu Offense Institute, he gently caressed the sword blade as he observed the ghastly cracks all over the sword. The Ocean of Peace beneath his feet remained calm, revealing an oppressive silence.
~The familiar aura, the familiar emotions, the familiar shouts and roars, that's right, even after ten thousand years, it is still so familiar. That's right, after ten thousand years, we are still able to meet.~
A heartfelt smile appeared on his face, as the air around him remained still. His eyes lit with light aura, like a full moon revealing its brilliance.
~Since you guys can't rest in peace, then let us fight together!~
"Everyone, come out!"
He raised Undying Sword and shouted out.
Following his sword movement, figures gradually surfaced out of the surface of the Ocean of Peace.
The figures that looked to be made out of mist had red crack lines all over their bodies that looked like red blood streaks that made them striking. They were like clay statues that were destroyed and built up repeatedly, as they stood extremely still and extremely quietly.
The palm in which held the Undying Sword trembled, countless of information passed from the Undying Sword to Ah Xin's heart, causing countless of flashbacks to occur. He finally understood what happened, and finally knew what happened in the Ocean of Peace within the ten thousand years.
He bit his lips tightly as he focused ahead, forcing his tears to not flow.
~So this was what went on in your ten thousand years…..~
His eyes swept across every figure on the Ocean of Peace, all of their faces were blurred like mist, he was unable to call out their names, but he knew who they were. All of the scars and bruises that occupied every corners of their bodies resembled heated wires, not a single one of them was a complete person.
Ah Xin felt as though a knife had stabbed into his heart, but the smile on his face remained, an extremely intense cold aura was emitted from his body, making him look and feel like a demon that had walked out of hell, just that he was smiling.
He raised the sword and roared loudly: "The spirits of our soldiers will never dissipate, the battlefield is eternal, our hearts hold the cross, we will never fall."
All of the illusory figures trembled, they raised their heads and looked at the Undying Sword. Previously, they were like dead creatures without any signs of life, but after hearing Ah Xin's words, it felt as though they had found their consciousness.
Ah Xin was releasing pressure from his body, causing the air around him to distort, his usual passive face released an extremely sharp aura that prevented people from looking straight at him.
His eyes were red, his expression solemn, the sword tip was aimed to the sky, with a sincere and disdainful attitude, he was honest and arrogant as each word sounded out like hammers striking down from the sky.
"The Ninth Ordinance of War, Army General Xin, holds full authority of controlling the army, all units, heed my call!"
His powerful voice resonated across the entire Ocean of Peace.
All the silent and blank illusory figures suddenly did the same action, all of them stepped onto the surface of the ocean, bang, they were in sync that only one sound was heard, producing shockwaves into the sea that reached over 10m.
The illusory figures stood as straight as spears as they raised their arms and bowed to Ah Xin. They replied: "Salute!"
Their voices were as one, like thunder exploding, causing the sky and earth to tremble.
Observing from the distance, General Huo revealed a look of shock, ~What kind of army actually wields such a might?~
All of the illusory figures seemed to have congealed slightly, and even the red streaks seemed to become brighter.
General Huo's face changed, all of the dead illusory figures that stood before him suddenly released a terrifying aura, as though they had suddenly come alive.
Tang Tian was dumbstruck, ~Ge….general!~
~Southern Cross Army's General….Ah Xin is actually a General!~
Tang Tian was extremely familiar with the ranks of the Southern Cross Army, but, General…..
Tang Tian was frightened, General was only second to the position Marshall in the army ranks, and what was even more frightening was the command a General wielded, a commanding power of 2 million soldiers, a General could incite a campaign.
~Ah Xin's rank is actually higher than Uncle Bing, that is truly terrifying.~
On the trading ship, Qian Hui and Xiao Man had shocked looks, ~General….placed anywhere, in any army, they were the pinnacle of existence.~
Xiao Man stared blankly at the imposing Ah Xin, she was unable to place the man who looked like a God of War in front of her with the usual sloppy person that she always kicked around.
General Rank, Xiao Man had a deeper understanding of such a thing, as the Ophiuchus Army was Southern Cross Army's mortal enemy in the past. Xiao Man had good talent, but only reached the rank of Captain in the Ophiuchus Army, with a commanding power of a thousand men, so how could she not know the concept of a General?
It could be said that aside from being the Commander's second hand man, he held even more authority than the deputy regimental command, because the Deputy Commander was usually responsible for logistics.
~So this guy is actually such a powerful figure….~
Unknowingly, Xiao Man felt disappointed. She did not know why the past Ah Xin made her feel more relaxed and at ease.
Qian Hui and Xiao Man were like sisters. Qian Hui immediately sensed Xiao Man's downcast emotions, and being intellectual, she immediately guessed the reason, and spoke intentionally: " I never thought that Ah Xin used to be quite powerful, I truly couldn't tell. I made him your assistant, and he actually had the capabilities to do things but hid them so well, humph, you better use your Zanbato and smack him hard."
Xiao Man instantly woke up, ~That's right, no matter how powerful he was in the past, so what if he was a General? If he doesn't listen to me, I can smack him! No matter how big he was, he is still smaller than our Master! Come to think of it, no wonder he is usually so efficient, a General is truly different, he has a different touch to things.~
Xiao Man smiled happily as she hugged the Zanbato, a sinister look flashed past her face.
Qiu Tian Qing had a completely different shock from the rest, as he felt the instant danger. In Honorable Martial Continent, only the Five Great Generals could be considered Generals, and no one else had the qualifications.
~But, so what?~
The killing intent in Qiu Tian Qing's eyes soared, the Five Great Generals were powerful, but he had never felt that he was inferior to them. He felt that they had the title of Great General was the benefit of being under Temple.
The Qiu Family also had a general, the genius Qiu Xu Hua.
From young, Qiu Xu Hua had always been his most direct competitor. Furthermore, it was because Qiu Xu Hua had defeated him and earned the opportunity to join Temple, therefore he was able to become one of the Five Great Generals.
Right from the start, he had always been living in Qiu Xu Hua's shadows. But he had never given up, from [Autumn Wind Offense] to [Autumn Frost Cold Field], he took one step at a time to reach where he was.
No one knew that the Five Great Generals were his imaginary enemies. It was a pity, the majority of them were placed away from him, thus he never had the chance to prove himself.
But, he was finally faced off against a General.
Although he did not know which army the enemy hailed from, but anyone with the rank of General were not insignificant, and did not earn it by a fluke. Duties cannot determine strength, but an army rank was enough to say everything.
The fighting intent in him soared to an unprecedented level, having the opportunity to fight against a General was hard to come by.
~This is the true test.~
Qiu Tian Qing had a calm expression, he knew that it was his own thoughts gnawing away, as the matter had always revolved around him like a ghost. If he did not destroy it, he could never improve in the future. As long as he defeated this tangle in his heart, his future would be limitless.
~Come, let us fight.~
He soared into the air. By his side, 5000 grey armored figures flew, the sound of chains sounded out in the air, but no one could see the chains.
This was the Qiu Offense Army's first time initiating the attack since the battle started. The intense desire to battle caused Qiu Tian Qing to be unwilling to adopt the defensive position.
They were like a pack of grey clouds, as they floated towards Ah Xin.

Tang Tian looked at General Huo, upon seeing the hesitation in his eyes, he retracted his gaze. If he were to take action, Tang Tian would react instantly. He had never heard of the Huo Family and did not care about them. He reckoned that they were about the same as the Qiu Family.
He was more interested in seeing how Ah Xin would fight.
Tang Tian watched as the illusory figures seemed to become slightly more real and spirited, causing Tang Tian to think that they were not the same. ~This should be their own power~, Tang Tiang had heard of Ah Xin's first sentence before. When Tang Yi walked out of the Spirit Chamber from the first time, he had said the same words.
~The Southern Cross Army is truly unfathomable.~
But what Tang Tian felt awed at was not that, it was the spirit of the Southern Cross Army, their brand and their faith. Tang Tian had seen many strong powerhouses, for example, Temple. But he had never seen the same spirit that the Southern Cross Army had in other places.
Ordinarily, such emotions would disappear after a long time, but when the Bugle Horn of the Southern Cross Army was blown, the countless figures rose up from the dust of history and gathered under the same flag.
The merciless time and the cruel world could destroy their bodies and wipe their memories, but the deep marks and conviction left in their spirits were eternal.
~Even after ten thousand years, they are still as passionate, how can that not obtain the respect from others?~
The Ocean of Peace was no longer an Ocean of Peace, but a battlefield. Ah Xin's robes fluttered in the air while he stood upright, the long sword was placed in front of him, as though he had returned to the flames of war of the past, as though he could see the smokes and battles.
Ah Xin who stood on the Ocean of Peace released a dominating aura, amongst the countless of images, he was extremely striking with his lofty radiance.
He looked ahead and roared: "Blow the horn!"
20 illusory figures moved, and a low bugle sound resonated through the entire Ocean of Peace.
Tens of thousands of meters away, Bing, who had his head buried in files, suddenly looked up, his eyes filled with joy and disbelief. Inside the Honorable Martial Roar, Screw who was resting suddenly opened his eyes, the eyes that were lost had become clear. Inside the Savage Continent, One of the commanders fighting against Mu Zhi Xia's army suddenly trembled. He raised his head, the fatigue that was originally written all over his face had disappeared, his eyes so sharp that it looked as though he could see through the skies.
No one knew of these events, everyone's eyes were fixated on the battlefield.
More accurately speaking, they were attracted to Ah Xin. Spirit Generals were rare in Sacred Saint Galaxy, and inside Saint Continent, where the present families were prestigious families, no one had a spirit general, but naturally knew of them. Ordinary spirit generals were unable to attract their attention, but they knew how powerful top grade spirit generals were.
For example, Sophie, a Spirit General that led the Honorable Martial Banner of Knights.
For example, the mysterious Bing of the Southern Alliance, an outstanding commander.
To the prestigious families, although a powerful spirit general like Sophie was good, but she was not as attractive to them as a commanding type Spirit General.
They had never heard of the General rank spirit general in front of them. Even the mysterious Bing of the Southern Alliance was definitely not a General.
How could such a matchless Spirit General that had appeared in front of them not capture their attention. They were equally curious, how powerful was a General Spirit General?
When the Bugle horn was sounded, the entire Ocean of Peace surged with black light auras. These black auras slipped into the illusory soldiers. As for the soldiers that had blown the bugle horns, they started to return back to the formation.
All of these illusory soldiers moved silently, but everyone could hear their footsteps in their hearts.
Pa pa pa.
The footsteps were in sync, and in a few seconds, their formation was completed.
Ssssi, General Huo took a deep breath. To a military general that was skilled with formations, he was clear of what was happening.
The orderly formation was extremely tight, their killing intent seemed to congeal into a substance like flow, the Ocean of Peace beneath their feet frozen from their killing intent, while the air flow above the Ocean of Peace seemed to slow down.
In the air, Qiu Tian Qing's expression changed. Previously, when Ah Xin made his move, he did not feel threatened. But after the illusory soldiers revealed their killing intent, it made his heart jump. ~They are true elites that had gone through hundreds of battles, even the subordinates in my charge cannot release such killing intent.
The more one goes through battles, the more congealed their killing intent. The killing intent emitted by the illusory figures was something Qiu Tian Qing had never seen on any other armies before. ~This is an army that had experienced a chaotic world, only those legendary armies can congeal such killing intent.~
General Huo was also able to see it, and was trying his best to recall, ~In which legendary army in history is there a famous general called Xin?~
Compared to General Huo's surprise, Qiu Tian Qing was much calmer. It was not that his psychological state was better than General Huo, but because he was in a state to fight, his attention had become more focused, and he did not have as many complicated thoughts.
Although he was surprised, he was not afraid.
~So what if you were from a legendary army? No matter how powerful you were in your past life, you have died for so long, how much can you do now?~
~I am Qiu Tian Qing, the man who dares challenge the Five Great Generals, you think I will be afraid of some young man and his legendary army of shattered spirits?~
In the air, Qiu Tian Qing's eyes flashed with a glare, he gave the order: "Battle formation, Clear Autumn Chains."
The Qiu Offense Army soldiers opened up their arms, the gold lines on their bodies lit up and like snakes, swam along their arms and to their palms, causing their palms to light up with grey light auras.
Every palm extended out grey chains, and were like growing grey vines that extended out endlessly.
Clang clang clang clang.
The sound of the chains squirming caused other people's heart to palpitate.
Ten thousand grey chains descended from the sky like ten thousand growing grey vines, the scene of it was extremely pressurizing.
No one had seen such a majestic and strange sight before, causing their scalps to go numb.
General Huo's mouth was wide opened as he watched the Qiu Offense Army in the sky. ~How powerful is Qiu Tian Qing?~ He could not believe his own eyes. The first rate Prestigious Families were all strong and hid their powerful military generals, and that was nothing to be surprised about.
But the Qiu Family already had Qiu Xu Hua. The highest quality of a military general could be said to be the Five Great Generals, and that was a quality that every family yearned for.
The Qiu Family was able to live and prosper in the circle was because of Qiu Xu Hua's existence. Any of the Great General existence were powerful assets.
So when General Huo saw Qiu Tian Qing's strength which was not inferior to Qiu Xu Hua, how could he not be dumbstruck? To him, it was completely absurd.
~Were the Qiu Family so strong?~
Ah Xin did not even look at the densely cluttered grey chains closing in on him but calmly adjusted the formation.
"The left three sections, move ahead ten steps."
"Right two sections, ascend 21m."
"Middle three sections, ascend yourselves by 45m."
He was thorough and straightforward, his expression calm, his voice clear and articulate, his orders were straightforward without beating about the bush. What was even more surprising was that his orders flowed on like water without any hesitation or pause, as though he had long formulated the plan and was simply saying it out.
But everyone knew that it was impossible for him to make prior preparations to counter the chains.
As expected of a general rank spirit general!
No one knew how many times they were moved, but right at that moment, every single person were feeling moved at the same time.
Compared to the strange sight of ten thousand chains descending from the sky, Ah Xin's side looked extremely calm. But, under his fluid commands, the tight and strict formation quickly transformed. Every order he gave would change the formation, the movement of the illusory soldiers were extremely concise like Ah Xin's commands, straightforward without any hesitation.
Instantly, everyone's attention were placed on the formation above the Ocean of Peace, they were like toy building blocks arranging themselves according to Ah Xin's commands, with the exact rhythm of his commands, the formation kept moving.
One side would ascend while the other descended. The formation kept on changing in Ah Xin's hands.
The grey chains descended onto the army from the sky, but the air above the formation seemed to have an invisible wall that blocked the grey chains.
Qiu Tian Qing sneered.
The grey chains wrapped around this invisible wall, forming what looked like a fence with Ah Xin and his formation trapped in the middle, while the other end of the chains entered the Ocean of Peace.
The ten thousand chains erected and became extremely straight like spears, the gold lines on the chains lit up and formed a gigantic prison.
~It's finally finished!~
Qiu Tian Qing's eyes flashed with joy as he roared: "Go!"
Mist started to diffuse from the chains, along with the decaying aura. Qiu Tian Qing's heart was extremely pleased, ~With the finale set, the enemy can't survive this.~
That was the true killing technique.
When the grey chains descended, Ji Ze was not able to comprehend anything. But when the grey chains formed a prison and when the gold engravings appeared, he quickly realized what was going on, and his face instantly lost color.
The chain prison had already formed a Law Domain that was difficult to approach.
An Autumn Law Domain!
Inside this domain, Autumn Laws were greatly strengthened, and any life would quickly wither and decay. If it was a live human being inside, he would quickly grow old.
It was different from Time Laws, the aging of Autumn Laws was not formed by the flow of time, but by directly turning the life into its late age, that was the most terrifying part of the Law.
Ji Ze was prepared to rush forward, when his eyes coincidentally met Tang Tian's, and he stopped himself.
~Boss doesn't seem worried at all~, he thought. ~With Boss foresight, he should be able to see what I can see. Why isn't he anxious at all?~
~Unless he sees something that I didn't?~
Ji Ze who was secretly looking at Tang Tian suddenly noticed the excitement in Tang Tian's eyes, he immediately thought that he had missed something.
He suppressed himself and turned his eyes back to the Ocean of Peace.
His eyes suddenly lit up as he could not hold back a gasp.
Inside the chains, Ah Xin had completed his formation, causing everybody's eyes to tremble.
What a strange formation!
The entire formation looked like a sword that was pointed to the sky, the illusory soldiers were stacked layer by layer, forming a robust "Sword body".
No one could understand it, no one had ever formed such a strange formation before. It is crucial to know that formations required research and analysis, no formation could be easily formulated and casually set up.
Ah Xin floated to the highest point, the position of the "sword tip".
He raised his head up and looked to the sky, his face revealing a smile, and then did something out of everyone's expectations.
