“Did the Principal actually go crazy! To cause so much trouble for everyone.” Fu Da could not help but complain.
A few days ago, the Principal suddenly made an announcement, If the school could not obtain good results for this year’s Star Wind Martial Meet, the subsequent two years worth of holidays would be cancelled, and the announcement was aimed at all students and teachers.
The Principal of Crystal Sky Academy’s authority was extremely heavy, and nobody could say otherwise. Anybody who has stayed in Crystal Sky Academy before would know that the Principal’s words were never empty.
At that moment, people in Crystal Sky Academy were squealing like pigs and running around like dogs.
All the teachers were like springs, day and night squatting down to observe students, adding more classes, all kinds of additional special training, there was no day and no night of actual combat practise.
All the students of Crystal Sky Academy felt that the suffering was too much to even say anything. There were rumours that those who skipped classes, or were even just late, under the enormous pressure due to circumstances, would be punished severely. In the past, all they had to do was spend a little bit of money to bribe the teachers, and they could have free days for themselves. But now this method was useless, as the teachers were merciless and strict due to the threat from the Principal.
No one could escape their classes, and everyday the students who suffered the punishments, stood along the corridors.
Fu Da was the one suffering the punishment that day.
“If not for those three assholes.” his follower who was familiar with inside information said in a low voice: “Do you remember the three country bumpkins from that day? At that time, I saw them enter our school, and felt something off about it. However, I never expected that because of them, we have such a big calamity!”
“You are talking about those three country bumpkins?” Fu Da asked. He also saw the three of them that day, but he did not think to link these two matters together.
“That old man is Caramel Academy’s Principal, and the other two guys, one is Ah Mo Li, the other is Tang Tian, you should know, they have caused a sensation these few days!”
Fu Da nodded his head: “Yea yea i’ve heard of it, Mad Bull Ah Mo Li changed schools. But why would they have anything to do with our principal? Did they accidentally offend the Principal?”
“I am not clear about what exactly happened either. But I heard from a few people, that Principal and that old man quarreled in the Principal’s office. After that, this matter blew out!” The follower continued to rant.
“That cannot be.” Fu Da did not believe a word, as if he heard a joke that could no longer be funny: “A broken school like Caramel Academy, what is there to fight about? Unless he wants to compete with us at the Star Wind Martial Meet? His brain must be fried.”
He was not one to brag, because what school was Crystal Sky Academy? It was Star Wind City’s number one school! Caramel Academy was third last, which meant the two of them had nothing in common to compete. If not for the transfer school issue, Fu Da would had never even heard of that school’s name.
“This world’s got too many people who are over their heads.” The follower shrugged his shoulders and continued: “Their brains are fried, we are just lying down and still get caught in the crossfire!”
“It truly is!” Fu Da opened his big mouth along with his startled face.
“That‘s true” The follower felt bitter.
Fu Da felt an anger swelling from within: “That group of trash, it’s ok that their brains are dead, but they came and implicated us! No way, we cannot let it end like this.”
“What do you want to do?” The follower suddenly sprang up with energy.
Fu Da laughed: “ They wish to fight with our Crystal Sky Academy at the Star Wind Martial Meet? These toads did not even look in the mirror, what qualifications do they have to rely on themselves? What a joke! I will make them realise the truth is far from what they have ever thought.”
“You mean you wish to….” The gleam of light shone in the follower’s eyes.
“Ha, we do not need to wait for the Star Wind Martial Meet, we will just find a few guys to teach them a lesson. Don’t they wish to participate in the Martial Meet? Then we will beat them up until they are unable to join!” Fu Da eyes were cold, sneering: “They think with just one Mad Bull Ah Mo Li, they can turn the tables? Beast Academy doesn’t even dare to compete with us Crystal Sky, with one Ah Mo Li, they become so arrogant? Dispose of them!”
“Yes, we shall find a few guys! Fuck, this unpleasantry, must get out!”
Very quickly, Fu Da’s suggestion rapidly spread amongst the students whom responded. Once they thought about their current hellish situation, all of them turned mad with anger.
Fu Da did not expect for so many people to reply.
However, to not attract the attention of the teachers and receive more punishment, they finally chose two really strong students, while the rest covered for the two of them in class.
Shen Yuan, third year student, Crystal Sky Academy rank nine.
Yang Yong, second year student, Crystal Sky Academy rank twenty two.
Both of them disappeared.
It was unsure if it were because of cultivating the Crane Body, but the Cycle of Hardship wasn’t tiring at all. Tang Tian’s to date Flash Fist, had already been perfected, and he could freely use any way to release the Flash Fist.
After meditating for an hour, his fatigue was wiped clean. Cultivating in the Crane Body led to a huge increase of True Power regeneration.
According to the comprehension of the Spirit Card, the Crane’s Body was only the beginning stage of the Crane-Style Qi Manual and was definitely far from the end. Tang Tian’s Crane Body could only be considered the fledgling stage. He needed to open up more smaller qi channels to strengthen the Crane Body. After strengthening the Crane Body, the crane would become vivid and realistic, its power would be formidable.
When he had cultivated to that stage, with a thought, he could solidify the Crane body inside and his body would surge with True Power. In a blink of an eye, the True Power would be released and was indestructible. It was soft yet firm.
Tang Tian felt that his luck was on a roll.
The Crane-Style Qi Manual was exactly the best complement to the Southern Cross Hardship Plate. Not only did it help him cultivate martial techniques, it could also increase his True Power by leaps and bounds.
This was what Tang Tian needs; non-stop cultivation, and repetitions of hardship.
What was simpler than that?
Tang Tian was brimming with expectations for his body. He did not know how or what would happen if he cultivated the Crane Body till its pinnacle.
Tang Tian laughed out loud, jumped from the floor and ran out of his room. He could not wait to spar with Ah Mo Li.
Ah Mo Li was sweating like crazy on the training grounds. In his hand, he held onto a wooden blade that was almost as big as him. He shouted repeatedly but just as in the past, Old Fart Wei could not be seen anywhere.
Unknowingly, Tang Tian felt that Ah Mo Li was far more hardworking than usual. In reality though, Ah Mo Li had actually always been so hard working, Tang Tian had just never truly witnessed him train. However, now when he looked at the silhouette of Ah Mo Li, Tang Tian could not help but have a sudden thought: “Is Ah Mo Li more hardworking than me?”
Oh, it should probably be a misconception.
Tang Tian shook his head, left that useless thought at the back of his head. With a thought, True Power poured into both his legs, sending him flying out like an artillery shell, straight towards Ah Mo Li who was training.
“Housefly Cow! Receive my blow!”
Tang Tian shouted while in the air, twisting his fist and throwing a punch.
Ah Mo Li had already felt Tang Tian approaching, and suddenly flipped the large wooden blade in his hands, spinning his enormous body around with unspeakable nimbleness.
“Fundamental Tang! Let me witness your latest improvements!”
Ah Mo Li laughed out loud, with his large wooden blade welcoming Tang Tian who was in the air, and chopped downwards.
The large wooden blade released a jet black blade image, with a heavy sound, flying towards Tang Tian.
Ah Mo Li was not able to instigate True Power, but his blade power was strong as though he was pressing onto the mountains causing others to feel as though they had no escape route. Ah Mo Li was born with the strength of a god. As the wooden blade was made from the hardwood in the forests and was as hard as a door, it weighed more than a hundred kilograms.
With that heavy chop, the might was astonishing!
With a calm heart, Ah Mo Li could clearly feel his own improvements. With this chop, it was like weight lifting was easy, it was clear from the strength he portrayed that he had taken a qualitative leap compared to his previous self.
However, Ah Mo Li did not expect Tang Tian, who was in mid air, to not have any intention of dodging.
Was Fundamental Tang crazy?
Ah Mo Li was slightly confused. Fundamental Tang’s body features were all outstanding, but he would definitely not withstand this attack. Even himself would not be able withstand this attack unarmed.
In mid air, Tang Tian pulled out a fist!
When he pulled out the fist, the fist instantly disappeared.
Ah Mo Li was mentally shocked. The last time Tang Tian used the Flash Fist, he was completely suppressed and ever since then, he was depressed. Although Tang Tian was in a berserk state previously, and was overflowing with power, Ah Mo Li felt that it was certainly not the reason why he was suppressed.
Let me see how much of your Flash Fist has improved!
Ah Mo Li’s heart became clear, and his blade power was even more sophisticated. The black shadow of the blade was similar to the lean and strong statue of his body.
A gloomy wind disappeared, and his blade power which was as heavy as the mountains, became light and swift. No matter which direction Tang Tian’s Flash Fist appeared, they would all crash into the blade.
Tang Tian’s fist suddenly appeared from mid air.
Wait a minute!
Ah Mo Li suddenly concentrated, and his frame of mind totally shattered, as he stared blankly at Tang Tian’s fist.
A pale and white aura was enveloping Tang Tian’s fist.
White Fist Aura!
Impossible! The first thing that popped up of Ah Mo Li’s mind, was these three words. How can a Flash Fist produce White Fist Aura? How is that possible!
The Flash Fist technique is a rank two martial art….
Yet the White Aura on the fist was clearly distinct, although the White Aura was rather faded, it was definitely White Fist Aura without a doubt.
Ah Mo Li was awoken from his daze, brought back from his shock.
At that moment, the huge wooden blade and the fist that was enveloped in the White Fist Aura, clashed.
A sound like metal and stone clashing rang, Ah Mo Li could only feel a strong power reverberating from his hand, his palm was hot, almost causing him to be unable to hold on to the huge wooden blade.
White Fist Aura!
It is the true and real White Fist Aura!
Right at this time, Ah Mo Li had no doubt in his heart, the ray of light glowing from Tang Tian’s fist was White Fist Aura!
After the fright, Ah Mo Li’s heart was filled with a strong will to fight, Fundamental Tang, I will not lose to you. As though his body were a mountain, he turned and firmly planted his foot on the ground. Then, he lifted the giant wooden blade in his hands.
“Fundamental Tang, you actually comprehended the White Fist Aura! Ha ha, I can finally let loose and fight happily with you! Come, Fundamental Tang, test out my [Groundbreaking Chop]!”
That blade that Ah Mo Li made was powerful and heavy. Although Tang Tian’s fist was enveloped by the Fist Aura, he still took a few steps back. He felt his shoulder went limp and painful.
This barbaric bull really had too much strength!
At this time, Ah Mo Li was inviting him to fight with much excitement. Tang Tian suddenly retracted his fist and revealed a neutral smile, waved his hand: “Ahha, Housefly Cow, I just wanted to say hi to you. Now that I’ve done that, uh, I still have things I have to do, you can play by yourself…”
With that, he quickly escaped as though his feet were dipped in oil.
Ah Mo Li looked on in a daze, as Tang Tian’s back disappeared right in front of him. Then, he vomited a pool of blood just like a cotton ball was being punched.
Promptly, a roar resounded through the forest.
“Fundamental Tang! You asshole!”
Tang Tian laughed out loud, flicked his sleeve and turned to leave.
