Translator: Lordbluefire Editor: Lordbluefire
The fight grew more and more intense. Xiao Yu was able to integrate with sword sages and used their strength. To many people, this was the first time they personally saw how strong Xiao Yu was. Many people sighed in admiration for him. As expected of a supreme peak-level genius of the Sword Spirit Sect. Who would be able to obstruct him?
However, what was even more shocking was Qin Wentian’s strength. This mysterious challenger that had defeated three governors truly had the power to challenge Xiao Yu. Each of his attacks was laced with boundless radiance, he was like a divinity of light. Not only that, he seemed to have a buddha-type astral soul that gave him a transcendent aura.
Also, the fist of light he punched out was able to split themselves into more filaments, transforming into millions upon millions of strands of fist light. Each of the split attacks actually had the same degree of power as the original one, capable of crushing all the manifested sword sages.
Everyone could very well tell that Qin Wentian’s cultivation base was lower compared to Xiao Yu. He was only at the mid-stage of the emperor realm and was actually so tyrannical to this extent. How terrifying was this? This meant that if he broke through to the peak-stage of the immortal emperor realm, it was possible that Xiao Yu would be defeated and the possibility of this was very high. From a certain perspective, this meant that in terms of combat prowess and talent, this mysterious challenger was even stronger when compared to the supreme genius of the Sword Spirit Sect, Xiao Yu.
Despite continuous.y clashing, Xiao Yu had no way to take down Qin Wentian. The light in his eyes gleamed brighter as he launched more soul attacks. However, Qin Wentian’s eyes similarly shone with their own light, he wasn’t afraid to match Xiao Yu’s stare. Regardless of soul attacks or material attacks, Xiao Yu had no way to take down his opponent. This caused him to feel a sense of shame. A mid-stage emperor was capable of fighting him to this degree? How would the others view him?
As he thought of this, his killing intent grew even stronger. In the air, boundless star light cascaded down as the manifested sword sages all fused into one before they integrated with Xiao Yu as one entity. At this moment, Xiao Yu’s aura started to skyrocket. He was undergoing an intrinsic transformation. His eyes shone brighter, his aura was more violent as the pressure around him increased substantially. His sword intent alone seemed capable of tearing the skies asunder.
Swishing sounds rang out as screams echoed in the distance. The spectators were all extremely fearful and hurriedly stepped back even further. At the same time, they unleashed their energy to defend against sword intent in the area. Just this random strand of sword intent was already enough to kill bystanders. There were now multiple people with their arms severed or their bodies being pierced through. This was simply because they suffered the aftershocks of the battle, the two participants in combat didn’t intend to do this. One can only say that Xiao Yu no longer had a way to fully control such an immense burst of power which resulted in strands of his sword intent leaking out.
Xiao Yu stepped out, his entire person seemed to transform into a shadow. At this moment, Qin Wentian stepped into a domain filled with swords. It was like he was trapped in an illusory world. Xiao Yu slowly approached, a giant face appeared before Qin Wentian as the energy of this world transformed into boundless slaughter intent, slamming into Qin Wentian’s body. It was impossible to defend against, such an attacking method was way too domineering.
Qin Wentian inclined his head, the Xiao Yu currently seemed to be a sword sage incarnate. Right now, a golden light cloaked his body in layers, as Qin Wentian radiated the vajra holy will. In addition to the undying attribute he controlled, he had a truly undying and indestructible body. He allowed the fearsome slaughter intent to pierce him, but they did nothing to hinder his movements. His eyes gleamed with sharpness as giant palm imprints imbued by the power of radiance shot through the air, slamming towards Xiao Yu’s gigantic body.
But at this moment, Xiao Yu seemed to have melted into nothingness. Those powerful palm imprints simply passed through him, unable to hit their target. This scene caused Qin Wentian’s expression to turn heavy. No matter how powerful his attacks were, what use were they of if he couldn’t hit his target?
“This must be Xiao Yu’s void body, it’s too powerful. The mysterious challenger might be terrifying but it is still impossible for him to win against Xiao Yu.” Although the spectators were in some danger, no one could bear to leave. The fight had completely exceeded their imaginations, no one had thought that they would witness such a fascinating battle today. As expected of a battle between two superstrong experts, they felt that they have not made this trip in vain.
“HOW CAN YOU WIN AGAINST ME?” A voice layered with tyranny thundered from Xiao Yu. He pointed his finger and stabbed towards Qin Wentian. In an instant, numerous sword rivers formed as the surrounding space was torn apart. When the sword rivers slammed into Qin Wentian, his golden body started to crack and crumble from the impact, but an immensely strong source of vitality from his Ancient Tree Astral Soul granted him an insane recovery speed. He stood there, enduring his opponent’s attacks with ease.
“Tell me how can you kill me then.” The radiance from Qin Wentian’s body was as bright as ever, illuminating the skies and earth. Countless swords of light formed as they shot towards Xiao Yu.
“There’s no such thing as a truly undying body. As long as you are human, you will die.” Xiao Yu’s voice rang out thunderously, as tyrannical as ever. He walked step by step closer to Qin Wentian, the killing energy from the void grew more intense the closer he was to Qin Wentian. He wanted to shred Qin Wentian’s body into pieces, completely killing him.
So what if Qin Wentian had an undying body? He could still kill him.
Qin Wentian’s white robes fluttered in the wind. When facing the tyrannical Xiao Yu, his aura didn’t weaken in the slightest and actually became stronger instead as the radiance radiating from him grew more brilliant. Finally, Xiao Yu appeared before him, stabbing his finger aiming for the center of his forehead. At this moment, the power of numerous sword sages gushed forth from Xiao Yu’s finger attack, it was capable of eradicating all existences. No one could block such a strike.
RUMBLE~ Terrifying sonic booms rent the air. Xiao Yu’s attack had landed, causing the hearts of the spectators to tremble. This time around, Qin Wentian would die for sure. No matter how strong his undying body was, it was impossible to block such a tyrannical attack.
“You are right, there’s no one who can truly escape death. Even for a body of void that you possess, you can still be killed.” Qin Wentian’s voice was calm. He grabbed out in the air, augmenting his technique with the power of God’s Hand. A fearsome devouring vortex appeared in the air, enveloping Xiao Yu. Xiao Yu’s body melted into the void once more, but Qin Wentian wasn’t aiming for his body. He was aiming for the part of the void Xiao Yu disappeared into.
In this area, even if you are in the void, you would still be destroyed.
The vortex transformed into a terrifying storm of destruction that ravaged the void. Xiao Yu gritted his teeth as he started trembling. A few moments later, he was forced out from the void as his body gradually appeared. His eyes shot out beams of killing energy, wanting to tear Qin Wentian apart.
“BOOM!” The storm of destruction grew fiercer, the power of the laws of light, of devil, of space, everything was fused together.
“ARGH!” A voice ragged with pain rang out. Xiao Yu’s body gradually turned corporeal as his entire being kept shaking like he was under a terrifying pressure. He felt like he was on the verge of an explosion.
“Governor Xiao, you have lost.” Qin Wentian spoke. With a blast of his palm, Xiao Yu was sent flying away like a kite with a broken string. Fresh blood leaked from his mouth, the energy of sword sages completely dissipated and his aura was far weaker than before, no longer appearing like the tyrannical governor he was.
When Xiao Yu slammed into the ground, everyone was still lost in shock, with the scenes of the earlier battle replaying in their minds.
The supreme peak-level genius of the Sword Spirit Sect, the youngest governor of Lifelong City, was actually defeated today. He was defeated by a young and mysterious challenger who only had a mid-stage immortal emperor cultivation base.
The Xiao Yu currently, was already someone ranked within the top three among the 36 governors in Lifelong City. He was actually defeated by a mid-stage immortal emperor young man. If this was before, this would simply be unbelievable. However, the reality was as such. Xiao Yu was completely defeated.
Two of Xiao Yu’s beautiful concubines rushed to his side to help him up. However, Xiao Yu pushed them away and spoke in a low voice, “Scram.”
Xiao Yu at this moment, all his pride and arrogance had completely shattered. The two beautiful concubines paled. They understood what this battle meant to Xiao Yu. As one of the supreme geniuses nurtured by the Sword Spirit Sect, when had Xiao Yu ever suffered such a huge defeat before?
All his glory, reputation and pride vanished completely with this defeat. From this point, it was evident just from the look in everyone’s eyes when they looked at him now.
The number one governor of the northern city regions in Lifelong City, had fallen from his divine pedestal in such a pitiful manner.
When everyone turned their eyes to Qin Wentian again, their gazes were already different. Before this, all of them thought that Qin Wentian was just an ignorant fool wanting to court death by using Xiao Yu as a stepping stone to shoot to fame. But now, they finally knew that this challenger was no ignorant fool. He truly had the power to rise to the top.
As for that old man who spoke to Qin Wentian before, his heart pounded violently. He was still in a daze, he had no way to regain his calm.
Qin Wentian actually won, defeating Xiao Yu.
His gaze remained fixed on Qin Wentian. After that, he only saw Qin Wentian turning around as he departed, not even leaving his name. The challenger was as mysterious as ever, coming and going like the wind. Nobody knew of his identity and where he came from.
The northern city regions, Lifelong City, as well as the Spirit Sword Sect. All of them were completely shocked.
The youngest governor of Lifelong City, the peak-level supreme genius of the Sword Spirit Sect, someone who got famous by challenging others, Xiao Yu was actually defeated by a mysterious mid-stage immortal emperor.
This mysterious challenger had already challenged four governors consecutively and won every battle. This caused many other governors to feel trepidation in their hearts, they were worried that this mysterious challenger would suddenly appear in front of them before the grand banquet starts. If the mysterious challenger challenged them and won, their reputations would all go down the drain.
However, that mysterious challenger seemed to have vanished completely. He didn’t appear all the way until the grand banquet started. He didn’t challenge anyone else, but there were countless people hoping for him to appear again. All of them wanted to know who he was and where he came from.
