Countless sparks cracked in front of Tang Tian.
The shrivelled body of Ghost Claw was just like copper. He was not moving one bit. Ghost Claw’s hands were moving at an astonishing rate. Fireworks could definitely be seen with each claw he pulled.
Huo Qi screamed like a beast. He attacked like wild, raging waves, while Ghost Claw was like the reef, no matter how wild the waves were, when they hit it, they would crash into it and dissipate.
Tang Tian was in shock.
Huo Qi was much more powerful than just now. But even so, he still could not do anything to Ghost Claw.
Tang Tian was unfamiliar with this powerful and mighty Ghost Claw.
Each claw was super agile, just like it was sliding in the air, it brought along with it a series of fireworks.
It was fierce!
Each claw was violent. Not hurried, not weird, but violent. Plus, it was fast and powerful. When it collided with Huo Qi, there was not a bit of leeway.
As for Tang Tian’s current strength, when he confronted a sixth level martial artist, he would not lose out. But when he confronted Huo Qi, he didn’t even have the strength to defend. Which level was Huo Qi at? Tang Tian thought about it, he was probably at least a seventh level.
What would Huo Qi be at after fusing with the tall man?
Tang Tian could not judge. He could differentiate that Huo Qi was much more powerful after he was fused.
Ghost Claw’s power, was just what Bing had said before, at the seventh level.
A Seventh level Ghost Claw and a fused Huo Qi. Both parties should be on par.
What he was witnessing made him feel that Ghost Claw had a higher chance of winning.
As if knowing Tang Tian’s doubts, Bing’s voice emerged from Tang Tian’s heart.
“Are you thinking it’s weird? Actually, it is. That is the true martial technique. Ghost Claw’s True Power was not considered powerful, but he created the Fire Scythe Ghost Claw. With the work he created for the claw, it was considered a master level. Be it a mechanical weapon in the army, or the Star Treasure Research of the Honourable Martial Group, or this method which you are witnessing- relying on a spirit general to battle, the true decisive outcome of a battle, is still in martial techniques.”
“The reason I’ve always been asking you practice your martial techniques again and again, is because only in that way, will you be able to grasp such precision of the martial technique. Other objects, such as treasures, mechanical weapons and instincts, et cetera. Their existence was just to better maximise the power of your martial techniques.”
“Watch this battle closely. A master level claw’s work is rare.”
Hidden in the dark, Kong Yi Yu looked at the shrivelled silhouette. Her eyes lit up.
Fire Scythe Ghost Claw!
She knew all the seniors and experts of the Honourable Martial Group, like the back of her hand. How could she not have heard about the known Fire Scythe Ghost Claw? But when she saw the Fire Scythe Ghost Claw, she fell in love with it.
She just got to the eighth level. In terms of true power, she was stronger than Ghost Claw, but if the two were to battle, she knew for sure that she was not his match.
Indeed, he was a master level claw artist!
If any martial technique got a breakthrough into the master level, it meant that its powers were enough to breakthrough all levels and its limitations. In front of her were the sparks flying. Each claw senior Ghost Claw used was pleasing to the eyes.
Although agile and fast, it was hard to catch with the naked eyes. On the contrary, you might feel that each claw was pure and clean.
But all these clean and pure Fire Scythe Ghost Claws were easily blocked by Huo Qi.
She looked on in awe. She had to admit, senior Ghost Claw’s comprehension for his martial technique was stronger than hers by a fold. She had just witnessed such perfection of the claw technique.
Tang Tian actually had senior Ghost Claw as his spirit general. It seemed like he obviously had senior Ghost Claw as his martial spirit. No wonder when she saw Tang Tian’s armour, she felt a sense of familiarity. It was the Blue Peacock Armor.
Tang Tian’s power shocked her. The legendary Fire Scythe Ghost Claw would be formidable in the future. Immediately, she was enticed, as if her heart were pulled by a rope.
But when Jing Hao appeared, she knew the show was going to end.
Although Jing Hao was not as strong as her, within the martial group, his foundation was much stronger and sturdier than hers.
What a pity…
The pull disappeared. She looked with admiration and appreciated Ghost Claw’s Fire Scythe Ghost Claw. Fire Scythe Ghost Claw, in the Honourable Martial Group, was considered high level. Although she heard about it many times, it was the first time she saw it.
Her eyes landed on Huo Qi, who was screaming non-stop, and she felt weird,
She never thought… it was all true…
All these people would definitely become the Honourable Martial Group’s enemies!
Very quickly, Tang Tian was attracted to Ghost Claw’s Fire Scythe Ghost Claw.
He was unclear if senior Ghost Claw did it on purpose, but each of his claws made Tang Tian infatuated. It was just like every small detail was clearly displayed in front of him. There was nothing complicated, but it carried an indescribable grace and mystery.
Tang Tian had sparred with Ghost Claw once, so he had experienced for himself the power of the Fire Scythe Ghost Claw. Although at that time, Ghost Claw was extremely reduced in power, but this time, Tang Tian had an affection for Ghost Claw’s technique.
He could not describe this feeling.
In front of him stood Ghost Claw, honourable and just. Without an ounce of stealth. But Tang Tian knew, Fire Scythe Ghost Claw could also be gloomy and eerie. He learnt that once.
Tang Tian had placed all the battles behind him. In his eyes, he could only see the clean and pure claws. One after another.
Out of all martial techniques types, the claw arts were weakest in terms of pure strength, but Ghost Claw’s Fire Scythe Ghost Claw was on par with Huo Qi. Huo Qi’s strength was astonishing. It was greater than Tang Tian’s, but no matter how Huo Qi attacked, he could not advance.
Tang Tian’s gaze was locked onto Ghost Claw’s five fingers as they were covered in sparks.
He thought about using his five fingers rubbing against the air to form sparks. That was hard! Tang Tian had startling instincts. For Ghost Claw to swipe his fingers in mid air to bring about ripples, everything was being caught by him.
Wait a minute!
Tang Tian was energetic.
Senior Ghost Claw’s five fingers created ripples when they swiped across the air. That was his characteristic. The ripples were dense and flat, just like a submarine being very close to the surface of the water, creating ripples.
Was this the secret of the Fire Scythe Ghost Claw?
Tang Tian kept his gaze on. With his right palm, he hooked his fingers and mimicked Ghost Claw’s actions subconsciously.
Right at this moment, a huge, sturdy and barefooted man, with a messy hair, flew from afar. His clothes were all worn out. On his back he held a huge and wide blade.
The barefooted man looked around and saw Jing Hao. His eyes lit up, but just as he saw the spirit general Jing Hao was fighting, disgust filled his eyes.
Moaning, he bellowed: “Xiao Jing Hao, move away!”
Once Jing Hao heard that, he froze, but in the next moment, he scruffled to the side.
The barefooted man brandished the blade in his hand and roared: “Exterminate!”
A ray of earthly yellow emerged from from the sky and fell to the ground just like a waterfall.
The floor shook. Everyone stumbled. A yellow blade radiance covered their vision and caused momentary blindness.
When the rays dispersed, everyone was shocked by what they saw.
At least a few metres wide and long, straight gorge was formed, separating the Yu Clan into two!
Huo Qi was shocked by the barefooted man’s blade. Without hesitating, he turned and ran.
Ghost Claw seemed to be shocked by this blade as well. He stood in a daze, but after which, in his deep, dark eyes, it was suddenly blazing with fire. He raised his head and whistled. The whistle was piercing to one’s ears and like a spiralling green smoke, it was never ending.
He raised his right arm and hooked his five fingers towards the direction Huo Qi disappeared into.
“… you must not be reconciled to…”
“Sparks from the Fire Scythe Ghost Claw, must burn their eyes!”
Eerily, this voice resonated in his head.
Ghost Claw kept his wrist still. Moving his hands slowly, he used his True Power. He had such a strong presence. Beneath his foot, the floor started to crack at a startling rate.
“Huh?” The barefooted man was moved. He looked over. What a strong presence!
Kong Yi Yu was stunned too. Senior Ghost Claw, how could you be so powerful?
Everyone had not stabilised themselves from the shocking barefooted man’s blade and suddenly, out came a stronger qi!
All kept their gaze towards the qi.
They saw a moment they would never forget in their lifetime.
As he dipped his wrist, his black, metallic fingers rushed over.
In the glimmering ray of light, his five fingernails exploded in splendid light and shone onto the shrivelled body. His right claw was fully submerged in the glimmering white radiance.
Very quickly, the light on the five fingers turned into incandescence.
A radiance so white, shone on the faces of everyone, which were painted with fear. Even the stronger martial artists, like Kong Yi Yu and Jing Hao, were stunned by this incandescence.
The light engulfed Ghost Claw’s body and everything turned fuzzy.
Everyone could only see a ball of glimmering incandescence that hurt their eyes.
Within the ball of light, five black metallic fingers suddenly grabbed hold.
A ray of eye-catching lightning!
The only word that could describe this ray of light would be lightning.
Glimmering, blazing, extreme, and rotten!
A black lit pit extended from beneath Ghost Claw’s legs to far up front. All the things the pit touched, turned into dust and disappeared.
In a split second, the glimmering radiance cast a blank sheet of whiteness in everyone’s vision. They could not see anything. That strong and breathtaking qi stunned everyone in this piece of whiteness.
When the white ray disappeared, the shrivelled body was emitting an indestructible qi!
Even the barefooted man’s face congealed. In his eyes spelt shock. He exclaimed: “Fire Scythe Ghost Claw!”
Jing Hao was completely taken aback. He had witnessed how Tang Tian convinced Ghost Claw and the Blue Peacock. Senior Ghost Claw actually appeared right in front of him and was much stronger now…
Ghost Claw stood up slowly, and the flame within his dark, deep eyes disappeared.
“All the sparks Fire Scythe Ghost Claw picked up, must burn their eyes!”
Like an ordinary man, he bent his back and slowly walked over to Tang Tian.
All eyes were once again on Tang Tian.
