Everyone below was shocked.
Countless people started standing up, their eyes were wide open, seeing Zhang Kai Feng’s dead body, they all exclaimed.
“Wu Yun! Y-you dare to kill?”
“Heavens! Judge! Wu Yun killed a man! He killed Zhang Kai Feng!”
“It was intentional! He did it intentionally!”
“Right, Wu Yun killed him intentionally, he has violated the competition rules! Wu Yun, you dare look down on the rules and publicly killed a man! What do you have to say for yourself?”
“Wu Yun, you are ruthless!”
Very quickly, the groups of people all started to shout all sorts of scoldings, their voices were together, their words as sharp as swords. Everyone condemned him, with all their anger against him, denouncing him together.
Just then, Long Xian Li who was on her throne could take it no longer. She stood up and shouted fiercely with her beautiful looks: “Wu Yun! You! You’re so ruthless! You dare to kill people from my sect! I, Long Xian Li, cannot live under the same sky as you!”
“Brother Wu Yun! I never thought you were such a person!”
Another familiar voice came out.
Su Yun looked over, only to see Wang Zhong Shan and the rest were also standing and pointing at him, denouncing him.
“It was just a competition, h-how could you do such a thing?”
In a blink of an eye, Su Yun already became the number one enemy, receiving the condemnation of the crowd.
The judge rushed to the stage, and went to inspect Zhang Kai Feng’s body, then shouted loudly: “Participant Wu Yun! You intentionally murdered a man, and violated the Mountain River List Competition rules, I will officially announce and formally strip your qualifications, and you will be punished accordingly! Men, bring Wu Yun down to be locked, he will receive his punishment after the Mountain River List Competition, and his cultivation and talent will be destroyed!”
Sou sou sou sou!
In a blink of an eye, the surrounding 4 Qin Creek Protectors all rushed to the stage, attacking Su Yun.
“Stand down! Wu Yun!”
The Qin Creek protectors bellowed as they released their sharp and cold blades.
Wu Yun looked at them, turning his head and look at all the spectators, he was alone and had no help, suddenly, an indescribable feeling flashed past his mind.
“Could this be?”
Sou sou sou sou sou!
The few sharp blades pierced over, fiercely stabbing Su Yun’s chest, an abrupt and intense pain soared from his chest, with blood spewing out from it.
Su Yun did not resist or even dodge!
Instead, his confused and startled face, slowly regained his tranquility.
He raised his head, looking at the dead Zhang Kai Feng on the ground, he suddenly waved his hand, controlling Engraved Dragon Blade that directly flew out and fiercely attacked Zhang Kai Feng’s dead body.
Just as the sword was about to stab Zhang Kai Feng’s head, the surrounding suddenly twisted, the Qin Creek Protectors all disappeared, the excited spectators beneath the stage all became quiet, all of them sitting and watching with focus. Even the enraged judged, were quietly standing in front of the stage at the moment, watching everything that was unfolding in the stage seriously.
As though all of that did not happen!
It was all an illusion!
As expected! So everything that happened just now was an illusion.
Su Yun regained his senses, only to see a dim yellow sword imprint array beneath his feet, while Zhang Kai Feng stood there with his fingers pointing on his sword blade, urging the sword energy.
But not long after, Zhang Kai Feng retreated a few steps, his body shivered, and all the Swift Wind Spirit Qi around his body became chaotic, he anxiously calmed his Qi, and stabilised his body. After getting back his breath, he looked at Su Yun.
“I never thought you would be able to break my sword’s illusion world! Powerful! If it was an average person, they would long be trapped in the illusion without knowing, they would be in so deep, they couldn’t free themselves, then I can take advantage of that. I never expected you to guess it, how did you see through and find out about it?”
“Seeing through it was easy. Although you used the illusion world to confuse me, you do not know me, nor do you know my teammates. If I were to kill you in the competition, they would definitely not condemn me, but in the illusion, they were scolding me so frantically, that made me think it was fake.”
“Is that so? I was even hoping that their attitude towards you could cause a serious blow on you!”
“Maybe it would have, but there is still another reason!” Su Yun said indifferently.
Zhang Kai Feng immediately asked.
But Su Yun did not say anything, his gaze quietly looking at Long Xian Li.
The Long Xian Li in the illusion world was too abnormal, making him suspicious of it.
Seeing Su Yun not saying a thing, Zhang Kai Feng did not ask further, he snorted and said indifferently: “Regardless of it, you were lucky just now. I did not hope to use that technique to win against you! We have dragged this long enough, it is time to end it!”
With that said, he tossed the flexible sword into the air, and quickly took out an unpolished gem from his storage ring which he threw towards the flexible sword. Forming hand seals and chanting, his mouth muttered very quickly, no one knew what mystical technique he had activated.
The sword in the air started to spin very quickly, in a blink of an eye it smashed the unpolished jade that turned into fine powder which landed on the sword blade. Even before a second had passed, the flexible sword turned into a jade sword.
The jade sword flew quickly, striking Su Yun.
“Immortal Sword Sect’s Imperial Sword Technique!”
Someone beneath the stage exclaimed.
When the jade sword closed in on Su Yun, it suddenly changed into a graceful, agile jade dragon. Opening its mouth wide, it swooped in, trying swallow Su Yun.
Su Yun became alert, he retreated a few steps and used his sword to block.
The jade dragon struck the sword blade, causing Su Yun to retreat even further, the unreasonable energy was enough to crush a mountain into pieces and split the ground into two. Who knew if Su Yun could take the hit.
“Such power, Immortal Sword Sect’s Imperial Sword Technique truly is extraordinary!”
Su Yun praised in his mind, but by no means would he surrender. He kept his cool and activated his Spirit Essences, fiercely pushing out Profound Spirit Qi, both arms brimming with energy, he clashed head on on the jade dragon’s head.
The jade dragon was pushed back, it spun in the air, and then with an even more imposing might, it rushed towards Su Yun.
It resembled a dragon, but it was ultimately still a sword.
Su Yun stared at Zhang Kai Feng who was behind with his hands forming seals and controlling the jade dragon. His eyes became gloomy, and he threw the sword in his hand.
However, he did not throw the Engraved Dragon Blade, and instead flung the Death Sword.
Engraved Dragon Blade’s grade was too low, it could not compare to the Jade Sword, and he could only rely on the Death Sword.
Su Yun, with a single hand formed a hand seal from the Limitless Sword Manual, instigating energy into the Death Sword. Although the Death Sword was still in its sword sheath, its imposing might was apparent. Regardless of what grade magic item it was, energy is still spiritual in nature, and that aspect is where the Death Sword won against many other swords.
Seeing the incoming powerful Death Sword, the spectators all held their breath.
Majority of the people were already looking to see what sect technique it was from.
“Immortal Sword Sect’s imperial sword technique’s forte is in its quickness and skill, when the sword flies, it can change with 10 thousand variations, and is able to advance in different movements in different situations. Wu Yun’s Imperial Sword Technique is somehow more spectacular, it is somewhat mysterious, but the sword’s ruthlessness is deeper, who knows where he learnt it from.”
“Young Master Wang, is Wu Yun a member of your Wang Family?”
“Honestly, will Zhang Kai Feng lose this match?”
“Who said Zhang Kai Feng will lose? No one heard of Wu Yun’s Imperial Sword Technique before, he definitely isn’t an opponent of our Immortal Sword Sect’s Imperial Sword Technique, all of you just wait and see!”
Just then, a low sound sounded out, only to see the Death Sword and the jade dragon fiercely clashing in the sky, a tyrannical wave of spirit force emitting out, the jade dragon was suppressed.
It roared frantically, as though it was trying to shatter the Death Sword, but even with its immense strength, it was unable to do anything to the Death Sword.
If it was the Engraved Dragon Blade, it would most likely shatter under the Jade Dragon, but the Death Sword’s firmness was something unfathomable.
Both swords continued to strike each other, causing the striking sounds to continue incessantly.
It should end soon.
Su Yun sighed in his mind, he suddenly raised his hands and waved them down.
The Death Sword suddenly released a fluorescent sword image which flowed through the Jade Dragon’s long body and straight for Zhang Kai Feng.
Everyone was shocked.
Zhang Kai Feng was even more astonished, perspiring with cold sweat.
He immediately turned his body and dodged to the side. But as he dodged it, his movement caused his focus to falter, and the Profound Spirit Qi on the jade dragon immediately became weak.
The creaking sound came out as the jade dragon was immediately struck apart by the Death Sword, instantly plummeting to the ground. Nothing could stop the Death Sword, so it immediately flew towards Zhang Kai Feng.
Zhang Kai Feng’s face changed, he anxiously activated his Qi to pull the Jade Sword back, but it was too late, the Death sword reached him first and smashed onto his head.
Zhang Kai Feng was unable to make out a word, he helplessly retreated. But as he moved, a figure suddenly swept to his side, and a fist struck heavily on his chest.
The unreasonable strength that came out of the fist erupted and spread through his entire body.
Zhang Kai Feng felt his blood and Qi fly into a turmoil, his throat became sweet before spitting out a mouth full of blood.
The Death Sword took the chance to strike again, hitting Zhang Kai Feng’s head, causing him to flip. Suffering the heavy strike, he immediately lost consciousness and fainted.
The Profound Spirit Qi on the stage gradually dispersed, the intense battle finally ended, and the audience flew into an uproar.
No one would have thought that Zhang Kai Feng would lose like that.
Because of Long Xian Li, Su Yun did not continue attacking, he kept his stance and retrieved back the Death Sword, quietly waiting at the side for the judge to announce the outcome.
The judge ran over quickly, checking on Zhang Kai Feng who had fainted, he stood up and shouted: “The competition is now over. Winner! Participant Wu Yun. Wu Yun will be promoted as a participant of the dragon group, and has earned the chance to participate in the Mountain River List Ranking Competitions!”
With that said, the audience that became quiet for the announcement immediately flew into an uproar once again.
“Wu Yun! Good job! Haha!”
“I knew you would win!”
“Where did you learn your Imperial Sword Technique? Even Immortal Sword Sect’s Imperial Sword Technique is not your opponent?”
“Haha, I won! I won big this time!”
Someone shouted gleefully, he was truly happy that Wu Yun had won and was promoted, but there were people who were happy for winning their bets as well.
Of course, there were rude remarks as well, the people that lost their bets were angered, to the point that they wanted to go up the stage to beat Zhang Kai Feng to death.
“F***, we bet so much on you, and you actually lost!”
“Immortal Sword Sect’s face has been lost by you! Useless brat!”
“You Immortal Sword Sect People claim to be number one with the Imperial Sword Technique, but from what happened today, it does not seem like so!”
There were countless people hurling abuse and ridiculing Immortal Sword Sect people in anger, all of the disciples wanted to seal their mouths, but then, Long Xian Li spoke out.
“Please send Kai Feng to treatment!”
That gentle and sweet voice, similar to the sound of nature, spoke out elegantly: “Do not be angry with them, let them be angry. In the world, there are bound to be winners and losers, winning or losing one round is nothing much, loosen your way of thinking! If your state of mind is not calm, you are unable to see on a higher level. Alright, let us go.”
With that, she stood up and left.
Seeing that, the disciples could only hold back their anger and turned to leave.
Su Yun heaved a sigh of relief on the stage, his fist faintly clenching.
“Finally, I have entered the ranking competitions!”
He muttered lightly.
Since I am here now, there isn’t much more I have to do!
“Participant Wu Yun!”
Just then, the official below summoned him.
Hearing that, Su Yun saw the official retrieve a golden order badge and passed it over.
“This is the Sacred Palace Qualification Order, you have already fought your way to the ranking competitions, and hold the chance to enter the sacred palace. Hold it well!”
