Chapter 129 – Success [Second Change]

The 293rd time!
Compared to the previous times, Tang Tian’s speed had reduced greatly. But upon a closer look, one would realise, his change in rhythm had become even more difficult to comprehend.
Beside Big Nine, he was like a fluttering butterfly, seemingly slow, but those weapons always scraped past him a few millimetres short, and fell to the empty space.
Suddenly, his waist was like a flexible wheat stalk, lightly swaying to the left, but was instantly followed by a faster dodge to the right.
The tip of the sword grazed past Tang Tian’s waist.
Tang Tian seemed to have expected it. His right leg bounced off like a venomous snake, swoosh, bringing with him a round of dazzling sword brilliance.
Piak, his leg struck the sword’s body right in the centre, and the long ready Crane Body Energy gushed out with a beak-like sharpness.
Number 11’s skinny body shuddered, and was sent flying as though it was struck by lightning.
Tang Tian’s move just now was to purposely induce number 11 to make a mistake. Number 11 was the craftiest and most dangerous, it was the first that Tang Tian needed to destroy.
Tang Tian did not care about number 1, who was charging over, his Scattering Vortex dragged Big Nine into a stagger, and boom, Big Nine stepped on a bronze figure. Number 1 did not guard against Big Nine’s moves, and hurriedly halted its moves.
Big Nine’s position started to change, the other bronze figures could only change their positions accordingly, but Tang Tian was suddenly like a spirit, bouncing up from Big Nine’s foot, and it just happened that the multi-handed monster triplets were in one straight line.
Tang Tian was like a spirit, suddenly appearing beside bronze figure number 4, with a deep inhalation, rising True Power, and shake of the hand, number 4 was induced to attack subconsciously, both legs were like heavy axes, exchanging blows!
The sharp Tan Tui did not use Crane Body Energy, this time the Heavenly Dragon Energy was used.
Tan Tui with Crane Body Energy incorporated, was like two razor-sharp axes, while Tan Tui with Heavenly Dragon Energy incorporated was like two hammers. Tang Tian’s two legs were not reserved, and gave his all.
For Number 4 it was akin to being struck by two hammers, and flew out rigidly, as number 5 and 6 were also on the same line, it was instantly like falling dominoes, all messed up.
Tang Tian curled up his body, and returned to number 9’s side, another Scattering Vortex, causing Big Nine to fall backwards.
Taking advantage of the time when Big Nine tried to stabilise himself, he suddenly appeared before number 1, and executed the Great Monument Palm.
Number 1 valiantly exchanged blows with him.
But the surrounding air wavered, number 1’s punch suddenly gave way, and Tang Tian’s Great Monument Palm was like a gigantic monument, landing right on number 1’s fist.
Number 1’s body trembled.
Tang Tian groaned, for this palm, he used his entire force. But he progressed instead of retreating, both legs drawing out two rays of sharp brilliance, piang piang, went into number 1’s joints, both elbows of number 1 were sent flying straight away.
Tang Tian curled back in Big Nine’s shadows.
Surrounding Big Nine’s massive body, he perfectly controlled Big Nine’s body, and a few bronze figures would be hit by the Great Monument Palm occasionally, and sent flying.
The figures around him reduced.
Following the crash of Big Nine onto the floor, only Tang Tian was left standing in the whole area.
Hoo… … hoo… …
All Tang Tian heard was still his bellow-like gasping, the wide and empty Chamber of the Eighteen Bronze Figures, was now deadly silent.
Looking at the bronze figures heaped on the floor, Tang Tian was transfixed, he almost could not believe his eyes.
He…… he really did it… …
The breakthrough of the Chamber of the Eighteen Bronze Figures!
An overwhelming sense of achievement that he had never felt before, filled every cell in his body. His bloodshot eyes stared in marvel at his palms, but very soon, the marvel turned into an uncontrollable ecstasy.
“Bastard! I did it!”
Tang Tian jumped to the bronze figures’ sides gleefully, “Haha! I’ve said it before, I’ll definitely defeat you, these bastards! Hahahaha! I’m indeed a godlike young man!”
Beneath his feet, the bronze figures were scattered everywhere, some with deformed joints, some with their parts scattered everywhere, the wide and empty chamber was filled with echoes of Tang Tian’s gleeful declaration of victory.
But…… so tired… …
Seemed to be a little tired… …
The highly strung up nerves for a whole 293 battles were finally loosened. Fatigue and weariness quietly crept upon him like the tide. He tried to force open his eyelids, but unknowingly, they got heavier and heavier, and the world before him began to be enveloped in darkness, little by little.
How could a godlike young man like him become tired……
Just a little sleepy… …
Tang Tian crashed to the floor and, seconds later, his snores rang into the skies, while his stomach rose up and down regularly.
When Bing arrived, he saw a soundly asleep Tang Tian, drooling quietly, forming a shining line. He had totally no image, like a kid that was tired after playing, sleeping soundly.
The fast asleep face had bruises all over, and was almost unrecognisable. His clothes were torn and tattered, the skin that was exposed was full of injuries as well.
Although the injuries sustained inside the chamber were not fatal, the pain would not be any lesser. However, on Tang Tian’s face, not a single bit of pain could be seen, his face was radiant with a content smile like an infant, his wide opened mouth slightly closed and opened regularly in sync with his snores.
293 battles… …
How did this fellow win… …
Such an important battle, he actually missed it… …
Bing opened up the Chamber of the Eighteen Bronze Figures without ever thinking that Tang Tian would pass. He just wanted to give Tang Tian a goal, so that he could mature faster.
But this fellow, he actually passed the Chamber of the Eighteen Bronze Figures……
No, he dominated it!
Bing looked at Tang Tian silently, unable to calm his mind for long.
When Tang Tian woke up, he instantly felt hungry and thirsty, his limbs wobbly, his eyes shone green, and he hurriedly dug out some food from the Aquarius Martial Cabinet, rushed to the poolside like a gush of wind, flopped at the side of the Bronze Waterway, and began gulping water.
The food that Tang Tian brought with him was non-perishable dried goods, he had no time to care about the texture, and started gulping them down.
Eat eat eat…….
Tang Tian actually cleaned out all the food in the Aquarius Martial Cabinet in one shot.
“There’s actually none left……” Tang Tian rubbed his belly with a tinge of dissatisfaction, his belly obviously rounded.
Bing floated in like a ghost, the colourful poker-face chimed, “Yo, the kid is awake. You could actually break through the Chamber of the Eighteen Bronze Figures, I’m really amazed!”
“Wahahahaha! That’s true, such a short-sighted fellow like you, Uncle, how could you understand a godlike young man, and the enormous potential he has!” Tang Tian was not the least bit humble, with a face of smugness, he laughed out loud to the sky, arms akimbo, without image.
Bing smiled cheerily, “That’s right, that’s right, then let’s begin a new challenge! A kid should be constantly challenged! So that your enormous potential can be stimulated.”
Tang Tian shuddered, his smugness gone with the wind, he tried to find a way around, “Aha, no hurry no hurry! We’ll find Qian Hui first, after finding Qian Hui then we’ll start, the days are long, the days are long.”
The Chamber of the Eighteen Bronze Figures had already been so terrifying, the other challenges……
Tang Tian remembered, when Bing mentioned the Chamber of the Eighteen Bronze Figures, he had said that amongst the most painful trainings in the recruit training camp, the Chamber of the Eighteen Bronze Figures was only in the top three, this meant there were still two other trainings that were similar to the chamber.
At the thought of this, Tang Tian’s scalp went numb.
Now, whoever mentioned training to him made him nauseous.
293 battles, almost 300 battles, even if it was eating 300 buns, it would make one vomit too.
“Bing, we have already wasted a lot of time, we need to hurry up.” Tang Tian changed the topic, “Let’s start to open up the road now.”
The corner of Bing’s mouth curled up, “Are you sure you are well-rested?”
“Of course!” Tang Tian smacked his chest, “Absolutely fully recovered! This godlike young man is full of energy! Come on, let’s open up the Southern Cross Constellation tunnel!”
Soon after, his tone changed, with a squint, he copied the demeanour of experts, lowered his voice, and growled, “My axe has been unbearably thirsty and hungry!”
“Then come on.” Oddly, Bing did not mock Tang Tian, but turned and walked outside, “Oh yes, I’ve prepared a new mount for you.”
“New mount?” Tang Tian was stunned, “Little Ostrich was pretty good.”
“Don’t forget that you killed Kong You Lin, so the things of Southern Cross Army are too eye-catching.” Bing reminded, “I’ve asked Sai Lei to reassemble one for you.”
Tang Tian, who was following behind Bing, stopped and pointed to a distance with a stoic face, “That’s the new mount?”
Bing smiled and nodded, “That’s right!”
“Are you sure this thing won’t collapse under my weight? My gosh, what kind of ostrich is so skinny?” Tang Tian’s face darkened, “That crazy woman must still be harbouring hatred for the past events, and is doing this on purpose to make me suffer.”
The mount before him had notably shrunk in size, the Bronze Mechanical Ostrich used to be taller than Tang Tian, with thick and strong legs. But the ostrich before him was one that seemed on the verge of starvation, a bag of bones, and it was only half as tall as the Bronze Mechanical Ostrich. Both of the legs were thin, like matchsticks.
What made Tang Tian go crazy was that it was actually fully bright red!
An unfriendly voice rang from behind Tang Tian, “This is Flamingo!”
Sai Lei’s eyes were electrifying, cold and full of vengeance, “Are you insulting my creation? Huh, kid? If you don’t have an eye for goods, shut up! Compared to the Bronze Mechanical Ostrich, this is far more outstanding. Its weight is only one third of the Ostrich, this means that its exhaustion will only be one third of the Ostrich as well. Its speed, compared to the Ostrich, is not any slower, and the crux is, its speed in short distance sprint could be comparable to the speed of rank six light body techniques!”
“That incredible?” Tang Tian was intimidated, but he still found it hard to believe.
“Why don’t you try it? Kid!” Sai Lei was arrogant.
Without further ado, Tang Tian jumped onto the Flamingo, the Flamingo was like a gust of wind, and started to run around the Martial Arts Square.
Tang Tian stimulated the Flamingo to sprint and cheered at the same time, he fell for the Flamingo quickly. The Flamingo was indeed outstanding, its steps were much lighter than the Ostrich, almost noiseless, unlike the noisy clambering of the Ostrich.
Sai Lei snorted and turned to busy herself.
“Uncle, let’s go!” Tang Tian yelled, and stimulated the Flamingo to rush out.
Very soon, Tang Tian reached the place where he previously met the Star Spirit Snake, but the place was now empty.
Bing lead the way, the duo trode onwards carefully. But the duo did not expect that along the way, they would actually not find even a single Star Spirit Beast.
“Are you sure we’re not going the wrong way?” Tang Tian asked Bing.
Bing was somewhat uncertain, “It’s definitely this way, the other path is very covert.”
His eyes suddenly lit up, “Yes, it’s here, look! This Rock Pass, crawl in!”
Tang Tian was energised, and hurriedly crawled into the Rock Pass, after many turns, around an hour later, a Starry Door appeared before them.
