An unprecedented danger made Tang Tian unprecedentedly focused. The might of Magic Flute was larger than he thought, just the number of such terrifying Vacuum Balls indicated that he was definitely of Heaven’s Road level martial artist calibre.
What to do?
Looking at those approaching Vacuum Balls, all of a sudden, Tang Tian actually did not know what to do. To him, this was an extremely rare situation. Even Bing, who was so picky, had nothing but praises for Tang Tian’s battle wits, and thought that Tang Tian was a talented battle machine.
But faced with such horrifying Vacuum Balls, Tang Tian for once felt helpless.
Just like his first practice with Light Balls, that entire sky of Light Balls had rained down on him, how fearful and helpless he was back then… …
Wait, Light Balls training!
How did he break through the Light Balls training?
Intuition, he followed his intuition!
Tang Tian’s heart calmed down. Now, his intuition was far stronger than back then. And although these Vacuum Balls had strong power, their speed was slow, and much lesser than the number of Light Balls!
Tang Tian, during battles, was extremely quick-witted, and he soon thought of an idea.
He started to take the initiative to change his position, although the entire sky of Vacuum Balls seemed scary, the previous situation of the air feeling like a wall had disappeared. Instead, Tang Tian had no restrictions in movements. The number of Vacuum Balls was shocking, and densely packed, but before Tang Tian’s 18 times level of intuition, there was space to take advantage of!
Space! Right, space. If he has space to move, it meant that he could take initiative, for a tiny bit of initiative to Tang Tian now, was akin to a life-saver.
Tang Tian’s body shook, and arched his body into an odd shape in mid air, and passed right through the fissure along one stretch of air bubble.
Tang Tian’s move instantly alarmed the other air bubbles inside the lighted screen. He was like a piece of enticing meat, and the air bubbles were akin to sharks which smelt blood. Other than the slowness of these sharks, the level of dangerousness was almost similar.
All the air bubbles paused and charged towards Tang Tian again.
Tang Tian took the opportunity to lie flat, stuck close to the ground, and climbed into a fissure that he could pass through, his back was less than 1cm away from the nearest Vacuum Ball.
All the air bubbles in the lighted screen, changed their direction again.
Outside the lighted screen, the crowd, who was ready make their moves to save him, was dumbfounded. Inside the lighted screen, Tang Tian was like an extremely agile monkey, moving between the fissures of the air bubbles with much agility, and all kinds of unimaginable moves. All the air bubbles were turning in circles along with him. Every time they saw that he was about to drown in the air bubbles, Tang Tian would always manage to avoid danger by a few centimetres.
Everyone was transfixed.
This reflex ability… … was too psychotic… …
The densely packed air bubbles made their eyes blurry by just looking, while Tang Tian needed to find a space to dodge into in a split second, and then complete his dodging via various weird poses. The air bubbles in the lighted screen seemed to be stirred into a huge mess by him.
How did he do that?
Tang Tian inside the lighted screen, did not seem human at all.
The little girl’s mouth hung wide open, and had completely forgotten about closing it. It was the first time that she saw that her teacher was actually so formidable! She dared say, none of all her previous martial techniques teachers could do something like that.
Di Heng Zhan and Gu Xue naturally could not digest it either, even Ling Xu, this stubborn fellow, was also stunned speechless. Thinking back on his horrible skills, Ling Xu was extremely ashamed. Compared to the agile monkey-like Tang Tian, he himself was like a weight!
Qing Luan, however, felt that this scene was extremely familiar. Previously, her Shaky Sword Wings had been completely suppressed by Tang Tian. That scene was almost identical to the scene now. Tang Tian was crumbling, but he just did not fall!
What made her depressed was, she did not even know why Tang Tian would not fall.
Suddenly she felt much better. She was curious, Magic Flute’s emotions now, was it about the same as how she felt?
Magic Flute suddenly stopped, and looked at the scrambling Tang Tian with much interest.
“To be able to train your intuition to such a state, and use it so well, you are the first I’ve ever met.”
Magic Flute’s voice was beyond pleasant. One could tell, his tone was full of approval and amazement, and not in the least repulsive. He was like a friend, giving his frank comments.
However, apparently not everyone thought so.
Bing howled in Tang Tian’s heart, “Ah pui! Bastard! You are actually being ridiculed by such a fellow! Such a fellow, we have killed numerous amounts of them back then, you are actually being ridiculed by such a fellow, this definitely cannot be tolerated, humiliation, definite humiliation!”
“Shut up!” Tang Tian roared in response.
He had to be fully focused. To be able to maintain the situation, and Bing’s howls, instantly made him vexed.
“The glory of Southern Cross Army cannot be tarnished like that, you useless bum, seemed like I have been too relaxed with you, even this bastard of battle power five, you can’t even defeat… …”
Bing’s incessant talking, completely enraged Tang Tian, and he bellowed, “Shut up!”
Bing quieted down, anyway, he has made Tang Tian furious, thus his aim was achieved. He simply sat down with a face of relaxation to watch the show, and smugly told Ghostly Claw, “This fellow was still saying Ling Xu was The Furious Ling Xu, but he forgot that he himself was the same, he can’t charge without some force pushing him from behind.”
Tang Tian was indeed incensed, a burning fire of rage was bubbling in his chest.
Magic Flute’s words entered his ears. Initially, he felt that the opponent was rather polite, but now he felt that it was extraordinarily displeasing to the ears.
“What a pity, my abilities have dropped to a common state, One Tune Seven Deaths, I can only perform the first three tunes of deaths. However, if you can block down this three tunes, you will have the qualifications to obtain this thing.”
“First Death Thousand Floating Vacuum, Second Death Thousand Blade Twist, Third Death Slow Flute Resonation. All the best to you.”
Magic Flute placed the bronze flute at his lips once more, his blue eyes gleamed, and blew an extremely sharp note.
The sharp sound of the flute was like a needle, and pierced through all the Vacuum Balls.
Tang Tian’s expression changed. What was to follow, no one was clearer than him, this was the thunderstorm-like Vacuum Death!
Without thinking, Tang Tian bellowed, “Peacock!”
The silver armour suddenly lit up, and completely covered Tang Tian from head to toe. A gush of energy filled every corner of him, this was the first time mustering up all his powers after he broke through level six.
The sharp hiss that made everyone’s scalp go numb, suddenly rang.
Inside the lighted screen, it instantly became a chaotic slaughterhouse. Numerous air flows were pulled along, like pieces of sharp air blades, flying around arbitrarily.
Tang Tian lost the space to dodge.
Every corner inside the lighted screen was filled with the scary air blades. They were of different sizes, but the might was shocking.
Numerous sparks flew from Tang Tian’s silver armour, Tang Tian’s body shook like a sieve. It was too dense! As though a raging thunderstorm, it was so dense that he totally could not catch his breath, and had no time to counter-attack.
But he knew, there will only be one chance.
When he was comprehending Vacuum Death before, he had thought of how to crack this move. The method to crack this move was very simple, he just need to throw out another Vacuum Ball in the instant when the airflow was being pulled. Once this Vacuum Ball shattered, it would pull all the air flows towards it, like a vortex.
Under such wild attacks, Tang Tian could not even move one of his fingers. Every feather on his armour would have to endure many more attacks of the air blades, and his entire body was enveloped in a layer of sparks.
How could you be ridiculed by such a fellow… …
Bing’s howls were still echoing in his ears.
Tang Tian with his eyes red, suddenly roared, and channelled his energy from his toes, up his legs, waist, spine, towards his hands layer by layer. After level six, Tang Tian had an unprecedented control of his body. Before level six, he definitely was unable to do such a thing.
However, this was also his first time doing so, summoning up his entire body’s power so completely.
The powers that were amassed layer by layer formed into a flood, as though breaking twigs, Tang Tian stared with his eyes rounded and angry, and punched out!
The silver fist, passed through layers of airflows, a transparent light cover lit up from Tang Tian’s right fist, and expanded. The Light Ball that was produced from Tang Tian’s punch, actually swelled to the size of a bamboo basket.
“Hmm?” Magic Flute was a little surprised, his blue eyes, revealed a look of astonishment. But in the blink of an eye, he understood Tang Tian’s intentions, and laughed lightly.
What a smart lad!
Like the sound of glass shattering, the light cover of Tang Tian’s fist, instantly shattered.
All the air flow gushed like floodwaters into the area of the light cover, those shockingly powerful airflows, were now fully pulled into this amazing attraction.
Tang Tian’s surrounding airflows, were pulled towards the shattered part of the light cover. Around 3 metres around Tang Tian’s perimeter, actually became empty.
Vacuum Death countered the denser version of Vacuum Death!
Tang Tian gasped for air, his face still with a look of disbelief. He still could not believe that he actually broke Magic Flute’s Second Tune of Death! Very soon, the face of disbelief turned into that of utter happiness. He has sufficient reasons to be overjoyed, for this was his brainchild after much exploration. The moves that he had explored, saved him at the crucial moment.
Nothing felt even more accomplished than this.
His entire body felt weak, under such suffocating conditions just now, the punch that was thrown out, was a counter-attack under desperation, and almost expended all his energy.
Regardless of True Power, or energy, was all exerted over his level.
The exhausted feeling made his entire body sore and weak. However, he was long used to exhaustion, and he knew that, at this time, he must not relax.
Once he relaxed, his strength would instead be unable to recover, and his battle spirit will be affected as well.
He panted heavily, every joint in his body, had a stab of pain, this was the after-effects of overuse of his powers. However, these pain to him now, was instead a good thing, so that he could focus.
He widened his eyes, and stared menacingly at Magic Flute.
Magic Flute clapped, with a face of approval, “With your level, to be able to break two tunes really amazed me. Could it be that this era has improved so much more?”
He looked at Tang Tian’s expression of trying hard to brace himself.
He smiled warmly, “Don’t worry, I’ll let you fully regain your energy. The little girl was right, this is a test, not a trap. I’m really looking forward as well, to be able to find a person who qualifies to possess it.”
Tang Tian was stunned.
