Profound Sky Sect Members
Elephant to Lion!
The current number of participants that were left was around 300 people. Sky Martial Continent was so huge, how terrifying was the scale of 300 people compared to the entire continent? These 300 people, all of them could be considered geniuses, all of them were exceptional geniuses.
Till here, even with his cultivation in the sixth stage of the Spirit Soul Realm, Su Yun dare not treat them lightly.
Although the opponents he faced were mostly at the fourth stage, the treasures on them were definitely not normal. Only the big powerhouses were able to groom the geniuses, and these existences were never lacking in terms of good treasures.
Su Yun walked into the Engraved Snow Plains, nearing the competition site, he could hear the bustling noises from the venue.
For the last three competitions, Qin Creek would hold it on the outside, so more and more spirit cultivators would be able to view the competition of the geniuses just by entering the Engraved Snow Plains. Adding the eliminated participants, the current seats in the Engraved Snow plains was not limited to only 10 thousands of people, adding all their breaths together, the convergence of air was enough to form a huge and powerful flow of air.
When Su Yun walked into the competition grounds, a few of the stages were already fighting passionately, the spectators were all fixated on the stages. Su Yun took a glance, noticing a neighboring stage, a beautiful lady dressed in blademaster clothes, holding onto a sword, was ferociously attacking her opponent.
Bai Yan Shan!
The Swift Wind Spirit Qi revolved around her body non stop, she was very focused and meticulous, her swordplay was firm and precise, fiercely slashing her way through. She was overbearing, completely suppressing her opponent. Regardless of cultivation level, Profound Spirit Qi, techniques or aura, her opponent was losing to her.
In a short period of time, Bai Yan Shan’s strength was overpowering like a heavenly warrior, and only extraordinary people could compete against her.
Su Yun secretly thought.
(TN: the chinese version talks about how Bai Yan Shan’s strength seems to rise to an unknown amount, like an arrogant woman of the heavens, but it sounds really weird so I went with ‘like a heavenly warrior’)
“Participant Wu Yun enters the stage!”
Just then, a judge shouted on the stage, pulling back the gazes of the spectators.
The moment Su Yun stepped into the competition grounds area, countless people who had watched his matches before all started to shout enthusiastically.
“Quickly look! Wu Yun is here!”
“You must win!”
“I want to see if Wu Yun is truly as mysterious as what the rumors say!”
The competition grounds was in an uproar, the noises continued nonstop.
Wang Zhong Shan, Li Qing and the rest were seated down at the spectator stands, and waved at Su Yun.
When Qin Creek held the competition outside, Wang Zhong Shan brought in his guards who were outside, and made them look after Hong Yan. Then, he himself ran out to watch the competition. Although he had lost, the following competitions were still very attractive to his group.
Under the waves of shouts, Su Yun walked to the center most arena.
Everyone focused their attention on him.
“Next, can we please invite participant Sun Zhi Miao.”
The judge spoke again.
With that, a group of people walked towards the arena.
There were two people, one tall and one short, one bulky and sturdy while the other was skinny, the skinny one had long hair, while the bulky one had a crew cut, the two of them were dressed in grey and black gowns, steadily walking over.
When the two of them entered, the crowd’s yelling and shoutings became excessive.
“Sun Zhi Miao? God, is he the Sun Zhi Miao who dealt with Gu Yuan Xin in just 5 moves? I never thought that Wu Yun would meet him.”
“Gu Yuan Xin? Sun Zhi Miao? Who’s that?”
“Idiot, you don’t even know who Gu Yuan Xin is? He is the absolute genius from our Northern Continent region, it was said that every time he fought, the battle would not last longer than one incense stick of time, he cut through everything in his path and is said to be invincible. Everyone thought he would be able to rush up to the dragon group easily, and join in the Mountain RIver List ranking competition, but who knew that in the eagle to elephant promotion match, he met Sun Zhi Miao, and guess what happened?”
“He was beaten by Sun Zhi Miao in 5 moves?”
“Damn it, how do you know that?”
“You idiot, didn’t you say that just now?”
“But since you said that, this means Wu Yun is in trouble! Gu Yuan Xin is a genius, but he was so easily resolved by Sun Zhi Miao, doesn’t that mean that Sun Zhi Miao is a genius within geniuses? Hehehe, I wonder how many moves Wu Yun can take”
“Don’t think that Wu Yun fought easily before. Gu Yuan Xin is an exception, in the Mountain River List, who knows how many expert cultivators there are, no can predict what will happen next! Talents are everywhere, only the absolute geniuses can maintain their positions! But we should still watch seriously and see if we can learn a few things from their fight.”
Su Yun glanced at the two people approaching, but then he saw that the two of them were talking between themselves and did not even look at him, and stopped only when they reached the side of the stage.
“Good luck, Junior brother.”
The sturdy and strong man said, and then went to the seat by the side.
The skinny and long haired man laughed, then stepped into the arena.
The two of them entered the arena and stood facing each other.
The judge walked in, while the official started to speak.
“The fifth match, ‘Elephant to Lion’ promotion round! Coming from Sky Dragon City of the Long Ao Nation, we have participant Wu Yun, against the disciple of Profound Sky Sect from the Southern Continent, Participant Sun Zhi Miao, can both participants get ready.”
Profound Sky Sect?
Su Yun’s heart jumped, he stared at the frail looking man, a trace of rage flashed past his eyes beneath the mask.
“Oh? Do you have any enmity against Profound Sky Sect?” Sun Zhi Miao who was opposite him laughed and spoke out.
Su Yun frowned slightly: “Why do you say that?”
“Because I saw rage in your eyes.”
“Your observational skills are good.” Su Yun took a deep breath, the look in his eyes recovering the tranquility.
“Your strength is good too.” Sun Zhi Miao said without restraint.
Su Yun did not reply. He took the Engraved Dragon Blade out from the sword sheath, he held the Death Sword in one hand and the Engraved Dragon blade in the other, staring at his opponent wholeheartedly.
Sun Zhi Miao also took out his weapons. It was neither a blade nor a sword, but a pair of gloves.
The gloves were a light brown color, on its surface was covered with small symbols that were densely packed together, anyone who saw them would feel their skin go numb.
Sun Zhi Miao activated his Profound Spirit Qi, adopted a stance like a tiger ready to pounce.
“Our Profound Sky Sect is not some third-rate sect, and we have provoked many people. You’re called Wu Yun right? I do not know what enmity you have with my Profound Sky Sect, but today, I will make you give up on my Profound Sky Sect! I will let you completely let go of the hatred you have for my Profound Sky Sect!”
His mouth curved up in a sinister way: “I will use my absolute strength to make you give up!”
Su Yun did not say a word, but his pure black eyes that were like abyss released a berserk aura that was extremely dense and cold!
Below the stage, Long Xian Li was seated alone.
The number of sects that participated in the Mountain River List competition were many, and for the sake of protecting their geniuses, the sects have sent out strong clan elders to lead the troops, tyrants who were currently at the site of competitions, who were not present at the previous few rounds. But with the upcoming matches, there was nobody absent, since it was the last two matches, and it concerned their sect’s people whether or not they would be able to enter the ranking competition, and concerned the glory and benefit to their sect, so why would they be absent now?
Bai Yan Shan who was on stage was intensely crossing swords with her opponent, but Long Xian Li could not help but turn her gaze and look at the people on the other stage.
Suddenly, her body quivered, and she immediately regained her senses.
“What am I doing? Why am I always thinking about Su Yun? This man killed Clan Elder Shen Hong, and his offense cannot be pardoned! If he apologizes for it then fine, but if he is not willing to, I must definitely teach him a lesson, and help get justice for Clan Elder Shen Hong!” Long Xian Li secretly thought in her heart as she pondered.
At the other side.
Wu Can Mian gasped heavily as she went down the stage, walking towards two masked people who were closeby.
Then, the two of them looked at the stage.
Seeing that, Wu Can Mian turned and look, seeing the person on the stage, her eyes immediately squinted.
“Isn’t that the one who saved Long Xian Li?” She chuckled softly.
“He’s called Wu Yun right? He came representing the Wang Family from Sky Dragon City of Long Ao Nation.” The person in the mask beside her spoke: “But how come I never heard of him before? It seemed like he came out of nowhere.”
“You must be careful, his strength is unfathomable, if he wins against Sun Zhi Miao, you are not allowed to meet him! You must definitely be attentive, our goal is just to enter the dragon group and climb our way into the Mountain River List Ranking competition, before that, you cannot lose.”
“Naturally, that isn’t a problem!”
Wu Can Mian folded her arms and laughed: “I am not like someone who did not even fight and lost his qualifications. Heh, seems like everything will depend on me.”
When she said that, the person in the mask beside her had a change of face, somewhat annoyed, he then snorted, but did not say a word.
Just then, a clear and crisp sounded out from the stage, followed by the Judge who roared loudly: “The competition will now begin!”
In a moment, the aura in the arena immediately became tense.
The people around all turned to look, all of them holding their breaths.
But, when the competition began, the two people did not rush over, instead, they circled each other and opened up, wanting to open up the distance to attack.
Sun Zhi Miao danced along with his gloves, causing a series of wind to flow from his fist. Su Yun quickly flung the Engraved Dragon Blade and released Sword Qi.
Fighting is definitely not a brainless and rash sport. Su Yun and Sun Zhi Miao had not seen each other fight in their previous matches before, so both did not know how the opponent would attack, or what kind of tactics they would use. If they were to rush in brainlessly, then they would be at the losing end.
Initially, Su Yun could maintain his rationality, but thinking about how the opponent was from the Profound Sky Sect, the group that caused everything to happen, his mind started to be filled with an unspeakable rage. The blood in his body started to blaze for no reason.
If not for Profound Sky Sect’s order, why would the Su Family do anything to Qing Er? If not for Profound Sky Sect’s underhanded actions, how could he fall? And why would Qing Er go missing for no reason?
The more Su Yun thought about it, the angrier he became, the more that continued, the more he wanted to smash the opponent to pieces! He wanted to unleash all of the hatred and anger.
Just then, a strange energy swept through all the meridian channels in his body.
Sou sou sou sou
Sun Zhi Miao moved fluidly while releasing punches, his footwork was so agile he looked like a dancer, while both of his hands released bomb like attacks, waves after waves of explosions were produced around Su Yun.
Finally, Su Yun did not want to contend any longer, his eyes darkened as he stepped forward and rushed towards Sun Zhi Miao.
He was unable to control his strength under his violent and raging Qi, as he rushed forward like a tank punching through the forest.
Seeing that the opponent was rushing forward brainlessly, Sun Zhi Miao immediately laughed out loud.
“Wu Yun, I thought you were powerful, but in the end you cannot hold it back any longer, seems like you are only so so!”
With that said, Sun Zhi Miao fiercely used his hands and struck forward like hammers.
“Heaven Upheaval Earth Splitter!”
He bellowed out. Sun Zhi Miao’s seemingly frail and weak body was actually able to produce such an earth shaking and powerful energy that was released from his fists, flowing into the ground, actually causing the entire stage to crumble, the surging energy rushing forth at Su Yun.
All of the spectators around leaned unsteadily side to side, they were shaken from the waves as well.
What an attack! It truly was world-shaking.
Su Yun who was rushing towards Sun Zhi Miao’s chest started heating up, his legs becoming heavier, Monarch Occult Force was activated, and a wave of even more tyrannical True Divine Spirit Qi exploded out.
Sun Zhi Miao’s eyebrow twitched, he felt that it was very queer.
A person who uses the sword, don’t tell me he possesses True Divine Spirit Qi?
Before he could think any further, a leg fiercely kicked towards him.
Sun Zhi Miao blocked in panic, raising both of his arms, locking the leg, but the leg seemed to be deliberately placed there, continuing to apply brute force, flinging Sun Zhi Miao into the air.
Sun Zhi Miao’s heart dropped, he never would’ve thought that a person who used the sword could have such strength.
In a panic, he touched the storage ring on his waist.
Su Yun’s face beneath the mask became very sinister, he immediately raised the Engraved Dragon Blade and fiercely slashed towards Sun Zhi Miao’s body who was in midair.
He did not leave a trace of mercy or leniency, harboring the intent to destroy and kill.
