Two blazing red fist seals whistled, side by side.
It was as if time started to become unusually slow. The two fist seals got bigger and bigger in front of Tang Tian, and the Crane Body in him seemed to awaken. Those wings started to spread open.
The True Power in his body, in all parts of the body, including the True Power that had yet to be used before, was all moving.
A crisp cry of the crane rang in his heart.
Tang Tian’s heart was blank. When he shook his body, he shot a strike forward suddenly!
Crescent Step Rushing Fist!
Power passed through both legs and into the rocks, welcoming the two fist seals. His fists rushed out without any fanciful acts!
The fireworks exploded right in front of him. Tang Tian’s Crane Body wings shook, and an electrifying energy burst out, flowing within the meridians of Tang Tian’s body, down through his legs and into the ground.
The rocks around Tang Tian’s legs all shattered into fine powder!
Tang Tian’s body disappeared once again.
It was another Crescent Step Rushing Fist!
Another strike happened!
Once Tang Tian’s body shook, and the ends around his shoes and pants all disintegrated into fine powdery pieces
With another burst of energy from his legs, he continued to rush forward with his head buried down. Tang Tian was very clear that, if he could not close up the distance between his opponent and himself, he would never be able to win.
A ray of bright light flashed in front of him. Tang Tian moaned in a low voice and pulled out both his fists once again.
The red sparks burst in full bloom like fresh flowers. In a split second, it blossomed in front of Tang Tian. In a flash, Tang Tian’s body shook, and his face was pale. But he continued to dash forward with his head down, it was not the time to use Great Avalanche yet…
Wang Zhen’s icy face actually revealed a tinge of shock. Tang Tian had already rushed half the distance, yet his expression had not a single change. It was only his gaze which was blazing like a hot red iron, extremely excited and crazy.
Rings of fire spiralled from Wang Zhen’s legs continuously. They accumulated non stop and flowed into his fists continuously.
The fist seals turned from bright red to a dull red, before they completely turned black.
The black fist seals covered Wang Zhen’s fists. The chilling, dangerous qi filled every corner.
Wang Zhen had not comprehended the killing technique of the Flash Fist, but he had comprehended the killing technique of the Chain Cannon Fist.
[Double Black Ally Cannon Kill]!
Tang Tian, this will be the end!
The expressionless Wang Zhen muttered silently in his heart.
His arms, as straight as pens, sunk backwards heavily. Wang Zhen retreated three steps back before he dissipated this strong counterforce.
The two black fists seal flew across like two fatal artillery shells, creating obvious ripples around them.
There was an intense danger locking onto Tang Tian. Tang Tian perspired, and his hair stood. It was impossible for him to dodge it. But, as long as he pulled through this, he would win… to pull through it, he still had Great Avalanche…
Tang Tian opened his eyes wide and lowered his body. He stared and followed the black seals that were coming right at him. Suddenly, he pulled out both of his fists.
Countless blazing flames engulfed Tang Tian. all of a sudden, a black lump of fire exploded.
The temperature of the black fireball was astonishing. The rocks around it started to melt. It was such a weird black fire, as if it were a black fire flower blooming, raging with flames, and had no intention to put down the fire.
In Wang Zhen’s eyes, his excitement died down slowly. Both of his arms dropped down. Tang Tian’s stubbornness was far beyond what he had expected. He was definitely a stubborn rascal. He actually made himself initiate the killing technique.
What a terrifying energy it was, that was circling within Tang Tian’s body. The black fireballs seemed to be able to destroy everything. When Tang Tian’s fists knocked against the black fist seals, the fist seals shook tremendously with energy as if there were an electrical shock flowing through into Tang Tian’s body right away. In Tang Tian’s body, the Crane Body immediately dispersed.
The energy barged around aimlessly and flowed through Tang Tian’s meridians, muscles, and internal organs, destroying everything. Tang Tian’s True Power seemed weak, like a paper lake, under this horrifying shock of energy.
Destruction, destruction, and destruction!
When the shock of energy flowed from the third tier Dantian pool into the second tier Dantian pool, it knocked against the second Crane Body which was in deep sleep.
The second Crane Body seemed to be awakening right away, moving its wings slowly.
Wang Zhen looked on quietly, as the black fireballs took in and sent out. The black flame that [Double Black Ally Cannon Kill] formed had to undergo the highest pressure in the fire element. The temperature that it emitted or the extent of destruction it could bring about, were both extraordinary in the Chain Cannon Fist.
Although Wang Zhen had long cultivated this technique, it was the first time he used it in a battle.
Its power was indeed stronger than what he had imagined!
Under Wang Zhen’s calm disposition, there was some pity in his heart. As the black flame started to die out, Tang Tian’s body was charcoal black as he laid on the floor motionlessly.
Tang Tian, you could not just die like this…
Wang Zhen thought quietly in his heart as he looked intently at Tang tian. As he wanted to leap into the white ray of light above him.
“Hey… we’re not done yet…”
A hoarse voice came through behind Wang Zhen’s back. He stopped his footsteps and turned around.
Tang Tian was struggling on the floor as he attempted to climb up. His body was burnt and his clothes was completely ruined. Wang Zhen knew Tang Tian’s inner body was injured badly. [Double Black Ally Cannon Kill] contained an absolute burst of energy. All of Tang Tian’s internal organs were probably broken.
“I suggest you don’t move as this will only worsen your injuries.” Wang Zhen said calmly: “It’s impossible for you to win. There’s not a need to fight anymore.”
“He… who said so…”
Finally, Tang tian stood up, on the verge of collapsing. He looked up, his face was black and his hair was burnt. He looked extremely ugly.
“The outcome of this battle is very clear. You have tried your best.” Wang Zhen was still calm: “This is only a sparring session, between academies. To lose your life for this is unnecessary.”
“Hehe….” Tang Tian looked ugly as he laughed. His body had stabilized. He looked at Wang Zhen as if something was rushing in his gaze: “Unnecessary?”
The second Crane Body in his body kept changing, slackening the pressure on the first Crane Body, which started to accumulate again.
The energy that was absorbed into Tang Tian’s body seemed to be attracted by a magnet, it started flowing towards the second Crane Body. The second Crane Body seemed like an endless black hole, sucking in all the destructive energy continuously. The petite second Crane Body started to swell.
He started muttering to himself.
“In the past, no one liked you. They mocked you, looked down on you and feared you. You had no friends, no smile. Everyday you lived your life coldly, now, you live each day happily. You have friends, you smile and turned into an idiot. All of the foolish things you wouldn’t have done in the past. You help each other and laugh at one another, you motivate one another. You all say you have dreams, all noble dreams. They don’t get it. You say the both of you fight side by side, never giving up, never retreating. In such a place, how is there not a need to?”
Tang Tian looked at his own palms with his head down and muttered to himself.
“I’ve said it, I will claim victory for this place. I want to clinch first place!”
“I’ve said, that no matter what reasons Old Fart Wei has, I will always help him!”
“I’ve said that even if I had to die, I still have to claim my victory!”
Tang Tian raised his head, his eyes blazing with fire. He clenched his opened palms tightly.
“How can I admit defeat!”
“You’ve underestimated me!”
His roars were like a beast’s. Tang Tian suddenly turned into a ray of black shadow and rushed towards Wang Zhen.
Wang Zhen’s pupils restricted, it was too fast!
With a crisp sound of the joints, Wang Zhen’s arms were as straight as pens, raised up high like lightning, pointing at Tang Tian.
The red fire elemental True Power seemed to emerge at the same time, accumulating in Wang Zhen’s fists in lightning speed. Even when the scene had such a twist of events, Wang Zhen’s eyes were still cold as ice, as cold as iron.
The blazing red fist seals appeared on his fists like lightning.
A chilling whistle resounded once again.
A flash of red light.
Specks of red fire once again exploded. With one Minute Collapsing Fist, Tang Tian smashed the red fist seal into pieces.
Tang Tian was faster now!
Wang Zhen was as calm as usual. His arm sunk back slightly, dong, followed by a blazing red fist rushing at Tang Tian!
“Go and die!”
Tang Tian’s roar was like a cry of a beast. His expression was sly. With another fist, he crushed the fist seal into pieces.
It was the first time Wang Zhen’s facial expression had changed. His pupils became small like needles.
It was nothing big when Tang Tian crushed the cannon fist with one fist, but earlier, when he crushed the cannon fist seal, his footsteps would pause for a moment. And Tang Tian had just crushed the cannon fists twice in row now, but his body did not seem to be affected at all!
Did he become stronger…?
Wang Zhen groaned. His body shook and floated behind.
As he flew back, he continuously threw fists at Tang Tian. Rays of red light rushed towards him at an astonishing rate!
Bundles of fireballs exploded in midair continuously. A blurry black shadow leapt along the road of flames. Every step he took was so heavy the rocks cracked and were crushed into millions of pieces. And it happened all within a split second, like lightning!
Once again, the True Power within Wang Zhen’s body started to rush forth wildly. His icy cold eyes glimmered with a crazy light. With a rapid speed, the black fist seals were formed.
[Black Double Ally Canon Kill]!
Right now, Wang Zhen did not hold back, he stared closely at the crazy shadow who crushed things into fine powder, accompanied by several explosions.
Since you want victory even if you have to die, then so be it!
A strong billowing force almost tossed Wang Zhen away as his glimmering, iron-like face turned white like a piece of paper.
However, his gaze still held full confidence. He followed the two fast black fist seals closely with his eyes.
In a moment’s time, Wang Zhen calmed down. The victory he wanted was here.
The crazy shadow had no hesitation, no fear. It was determined like a razor sharp knife as it knocked against the black fist seal ferociously.
Tang Tian’s charcoaled black face revealed two rows of snow-white teeth. Biting hard, he squeezed two words from his teeth.
With a fist, he pulled towards the two black fist seals. At the same time, a crisp cry of a crane rang in his heart.
It was the end… Wang Zhen’s eyes were peaceful, without too much surprise. With such a vicious and strong attack, it was already beyond his limit. Under extreme pressure, his [Black Ally Cannon Kill] aggregated all of his martial technique essence, it was his peak!
A light and soft, almost unheard, sound rang in Wang Zhen’s ears like thunder.
With a rapid twist, the two black fist seals, filled with great destructive power, were like loosened black snowballs, collapsing weirdly into small pieces!
How was that possible…
Wang Zhen’s mind was blank, his hands cold. The black shadow in front of him disappeared, yet he was oblivious.
With a sudden pain in the back of his neck, Wang Zhen’s vision turned black all of a sudden, and he lost consciousness.
Tang Tian’s heavy breaths resounded through the caves.
Victory…I won…I really won…!
Tang Tian stared at his palms in disbelief.
