* We accidentally left out the end of chapter 31 when it was first released so adding it here incase you already read chapter 31.
The viewing platform instantly exploded.
“Miss Bing Ning!”
Within the ear splitting clamours, Han Bing Ning remained expressionless, without a change in her expression.
“Big Zhen, you always make things difficult for me.” Annoyed, Sima Xiang Shan sighed and took off his mask.
The loud clamours came to a stop and the agitated audience immediately became stoned faced.
Sima Xiang Shan!
The plaza was dead silent.
The fear was like a plague spreading through and it climbed onto the faces of these people and right into their eyes.
Sima Xiang Shan smiled with his eyes squinted. He looked very ordinary and he seemed gentle and friendly.
But no one thought this way.
Sima Xian Shan!
Ever since Qian Hui left Star Wind City, Sima Xiang Shan had dominated the position of number one in Star Wind City, but he was treated very differently from Qian Hui. Sima Xiang Shan’s reputation was vicious and it could make a crying baby stop crying.
Cruel, vicious, short-tempered, insane…
Very powerful, weird personality had caused everyone to fear for his existence.
This…what exactly is this preliminary competition about!
In the dead silence, Tang Tian opened his eyes in a daze.
Huh, where did all these people came from…
Tang Tian looked over at the viewing platform with his drowsy eyes. Out of a sudden, he noticed Han Bing Ning.
Tang Tian became energetic instantly and waved his arms high up towards the viewing platform shouting.
“Aha, young lady! Did you come to witness a legend of a godlike young lad fighting? Wahaha, young miss, you have precise foresight!”
The deadly silence was broken with Tang Tian’s shoutings. All the gloomy and panic-stricken atmosphere was gone abruptly.
Everyone set their gaze on Han Bing Ning.
It seemed as though Han Bing Ning’s face did not change, but somewhere everyone could not see, the fingers that were holding onto the sword were turning white.
This was the first time she had ever wanted to dig herself into the ground.
“Senior sister, who is he?” Cai Xue asked with a curious expression.
Senior sister actually knows this person, Cai Xue and He Xiao Qin looked at each other, and their minds were filled with curiosity. Thinking again, their Principal had allowed them to go out, did the Principal know about this too? Looking again at the stage’s super luxurious viewing platform Lineup, the Star Wind City’s top three strongest students and other experts coming in one by one, although Beast Academy’s Liang Qiu was not present, there was Wang Zhen who came personally, it was clear that there was someone with a degree of importance.
Could it be that Star Wind City had produced another genius?
Also, he and senior sister look like they are on good terms…
Yet they both knew clearly, the attitude that senior sister gave to males.
“He is Tang Tian.” Han Bing Ning forcing herself to be calm, striving hard to suppress herself from the greetings Tang Tian said to her that brought her intense embarrassment.
“Ah! He is Tang Tian”
“He is Tang Tian?”
Cai Xue and He Xiao Qin gasped simultaneously, both of them had a face of disbelief. The guy below was actually Tang Tian? The legendary ultimate retainer student, the rubbish student who was chased out of the school the Tang Tian? The Tang Tian that Qian Hui adored that year?
Qian Hui… could it be…
Cai Xue and He Xiao Qin looked at each other again, they both clearly knew that their senior sister somewhat worshipped Qian Hui.
Cai Xue hesitated for a while, but could not take it in any longer and stuttered: “Senior Sister, Liking Qian Hui is not a problem, but liking her man, that is a bit….”
He Xiao Qin was more straightforward, with a stern face: “Senior sister, there are plenty more fishes in the sea, why should you pick this broken shoe!”
Han Bing Ning’s mouth twitched, she resisted the urge to pull out her sword and cut the two people beside her, composed her tranquility and calmness, turned to look at the two of them with a serious face: “You two are thinking too much, in truth i only like women,”
Cai Xue and He Xiao Qin’s expressions froze, they were stunned, astonished to the point that they could not say anything.
Han Bing Ning turned back, as if she did not say anything.
At that point of time many people already recognized Tang Tian who was on the field.
“He is Tang Tian, wasn’t it said that Tang Tian was a rubbish student?”
“Yea, he retained for five years, if not a rubbish student then what?”
“But why are there so many big shots running here? Are they bored until they have a pain in their balls?”
“Eh, maybe being bored is true, but pain in the balls? You look down on the big shots’ balls already, their entire bodies are made of copper or iron, even the balls are balls of steel…”
The group of people tried their best to keep their volumes down, but Sima Xiang Shan and the rest had sensitive hearing, and could hear everything clearly, yet once they heard those piercing words, the group of power big shots subconsciously crossed their legs.
As the referee entered the arena, he was shocked by the entire prosperous crowd that was at the scene, and he almost suspected himself of walking to the wrong place. Looking on the stage those few suspicious faces, led his heart to jump, his scalp to go numb. Just by casually picking any person there, any of their competition would immediately become the hottest match under the sun.
Sima Xiang Shan, Han Bing Ning, Wang Zhen….
Having been appointed as the Martial Meet’s judge with over five years of experience and qualifications, how could he not recognize those people?
My god, is this…this the preliminary competition?
In the nick of time, the other participant entered the arena, allowing the judge to regain his senses.
A swift and fierce shadow, stepped onto the arena, his voice seemed to have a trace of murderous intent: “Can i ask, is this arena 3897?”
As the judge looked at the contestant clearly, his mind shivered with cold.
He was half naked waist up, waist down he wore a simple and crude pants made from animal skin, he was dark with a hint of metal luster, barefooted, and in his hands was a copper rod, both ends of the rod were wrapped in a ball of minute convex needles. Yet the most impressive thing that left a deep mark to other people, was actually his eyes.
Swift and fierce yet brimming with murderous intent!
“Oh?” Ming Guang expressed an unexpected look: “Looks like that guy’s power is not bad!”
Wang Zhen agreed: “Seems like his battle experience must be plentiful.”
Sima Xiang Shan sat slightly straight, Shen Yuan face showed astonishment.
Han Bing Ning squinted her eyes, while Cai Xue and He Xiao Qin who were beside her, face became more serious.
The judge had seen all sorts of participants, and with one look he could tell, the young man who was barefooted carrying the copper rod, was definitely up to no good.
“Yes.” The judge nodded.
The barefooted youth turned to look at Tang Tian.
Tang Tian eyes brightened, immediately waved his hand to greet: “Ah ha, young man, You are my opponent?”
The barefooted youth turned to the judge: “Can we begin?”
The judge immediately asked Tang Tian: “Are you prepared?”
“I was born ready.” Tang Tian loudly shouted.
Just as his voice was out, the youth disappeared into the air, a wind from the rod suddenly appeared behind Tang Tian’s head.
Tang Tian was surprised, he did not expect that when the opponent said fight, it meant that he would instantly fight, but his reaction was super fast, he stooped down, pulling his left leg behind.
Tang Tian’s hind leg was stopped by the copper rod of the barefooted youth.
Both of them simultaneously took a few steps back, and was once again separated.
“You actually dare to sneak attack!” Tang Tian’s smiling face was gone, and what replaced it, was a nasty face, staring at the opponent, he coldly snorted: “You’re finished!”
The barefooted youth expression was indifferent, as if he did not hear what Tang Tian said.
Tang Tian bent his waist, spread out both of his arms, his ten fingers distantly locking in to the opposite barefooted youth.
Han Bing Ning who was watching from the stage, suddenly recalled the day when Tang TIan was up against the Ink Black Iron Rhino, and it was exactly the posture he was in then.
In a flash, it was like Tang Tian changed into an entire new person, his face had not an inch of laugh, both eyes were steady and calm without a hint of movement. Spreading out his arms, every muscle in his body was clear and distinct, with solid contours defining the muscles even more, brimming with masculinity.
Sima Xiang Shan who was sitting slightly straight, his eyes move slightly, and he sat even more straight.
Everyone else who felt the change in Tang Tian, who were initially discussing spiritedly at the spectators stand, immediately quietened down.
The opposite barefooted youth also noticed Tang Tian’s change, his eyes flitted a hint of vigilance, the long copper rod in his hand swiftly extended straight, with the rod head pointing straight at Tang Tian.
Although the barefooted youth felt an intense oppressive feeling, his eyes did not show any sign of fear, with an ominous glint sparkling, his body disappeared in front of Tang Tian’s view again.
At the same time, Tang Tian squinted his eyes and stared, upper body swung like a pendulum, in an instant his movements became blurred.
The long copper rod swept towards his body.
The long copper rod had not touch the ground yet, but the energy split the ground open, and countless ground remnants flew out.
Tang Tian’s fist came out and bore towards the barefooted youth’s left rib without any sign.
The barefooted youth’s power was more than average, the long copper rod just came into view, but it seemed like he anticipated Tang Tian’s attacks, and his body instantly rolled to one side, dodging Tang Tian’s Flash Fist, at the same time he used the tail of the rod, like a poisonous snake, ‘Pa!’, hitting Tang Tian.
Tang Tian unexpectedly stepped on an aerial stake, like sliding on ice, brushing past the venomous snake like part of the rod.
The barefooted youth spun his body like a spinning top, fully straight out towards the other direction, before pulling back the heavy long copper rod.
Wengggggg! (Buzz sound)
A deep and resounding sound came out from the rod, causing people’s heart to palpitate.
Tang Tian jumped away to one side.
The barefooted youth body was like a roly-poly doll, leaning to the other side, bring the rod again and sweeping that area.
From the change of the rod’s sound, Tang Tian knew that the rod’s power became stronger once again!
The barefooted youth once again leaned toward the other side, the long copper rod once again gaining in strength, the rod starting to become blurry, unable to catch with the naked eye, and the wind brought about by the moving rod increasingly terrified the spectators.
Tang Tian already saw through a few of parts of the technique. The barefooted youth was using his body as an axis, bringing the movement to the rod’s body. Everytime he leaned to one side, the copper rod’s power would increase. Now that the barefooted youth was like a fast rotating spinning top, the power in his copper rod was profoundly deep, any strike or hit would be terrifying, as long as he was caught in the sweep for a bit, most likely he would lose his fighting strength. Just by looking, the barefooted youth’s rod shadow was very chaotic, but it covered maximum range.
This point was learnt from Tang Tian continuously dodging and watching.
What is this rod technique…
“What is this rod technique?” Ming Guang who was on the stage could not help but ask: “It is a queer way to attack.”
“[Confusing Splitting Wind Rod Technique].” Wang Zhen had some knowledge on this: “This type of rod technique is cultivated by very few people.”
It was the first time that Ming Guang had heard of such a rod technique, and was astounded; “Why? It feels powerful! Little i did expect for preliminary competitions to have these kind of Powerful contestants!”
“Confusing Splitting Wind Rod Technique, you must be naturally gifted as it utilises pure strength to prevail.” Wang Zhen explained: “As the body movement brings out the rod power, you can see his form, is like a drunkard, but on the contrary, it is a hidden danger. Once the Confusing Splitting Wind Rod Technique dance is started, he will hold the advantage.”
“Then isn’t Tang Tian in danger? Ming Guan raised his eyebrow.
“The best timing to counter Confusing Splitting Wind Rod Technique, is during the first few hits of the rod, at that time the power of the rod has not been amplified. Now that the rod power has layered multiple times, it’s genuine deep power is shown.” Wang Zhen said.
Hu Hu Hu! (sound of rod moving quickly)
The heavy and profound copper rod had enough momentum to swing at a very high speed, bringing about a sound that flooded the entire area. All the broken stones and sand on the floor continuously got flung up, and then got crushed again by the rod’s afterimage.
The barefooted youth’s body outline was totally shrouded by the Rod’s afterimages.
It seemed like a tornado was wreaking havoc, rumbling on the tiny arena.
Tang Tian did not expect that his first opponent would be so powerful.
However, he did not get fazed by the opponent’s rod power.
His gaze was focused, all the distracting thoughts were flung to the back of his head, his opponent was like a small gale, everything that passes through, becomes like sand and stones.
The copper rod was roughly about 30 kg, once the dance had started, the power was terrifying.
Tang Tian stopped moving, and directly faced his opponent.
The brass colored rod images suddenly changed directions, loudly crashing towards Tang Tian.
Tang Tians expression was calm and peaceful, looking at the opponent, his body slightly leaning forward, right fist kept at his waist.
The spectators on the spectator stand, were immediately taken aback. Such a heavy and powerful copper rod, to take it head on with force, was literally digging his own grave.
Tang Tian doesn’t want to live anymore?
Tang Tian’s left leg suddenly heavily stamped on to the floor, the peaceful and calm face, suddenly turned sinister, his left leg released power, and like an arrow, his entire being leapt forward.
Tang Tian’s every step was unmatchably heavy, deeply sinking into the ground!
In everybody’s dumbstruck eyes, Tang Tian was like a crazy wild bull, bringing up countless of earth and soil behind with him, rumbling and following him rush towards the gale.
However, Tang TIan who looked sinister to everyone, actually had a peaceful and calm gaze, although this power in many people’s eyes would cause them to choke or suffocate, in his eyes, this was still not strong enough!
By his side, there was Housefly Cow who had such perverse and abnormally huge manic power! And let’s not even start with Big Bro Stone Head, that kind of ultimate perverse steamroller! Even if they had to randomly pick anyone from the quarry, randomly brandishing their huge hammer’s power, they were all much more terrifying!
Young man, you do not know what your grandpa had to go through to become what i am today…
