The sound of the steel sword being bitten and breaking, sounded like a crisp from a biscuit, and everyone heard it. The halved sword blade fell and splattered in many pieces, seemingly in slow motion, everything was crystal clear.
The clear and crisp sound of the broken sword, in the midst of silence, was extremely piercing to the ear. But no one said anything, as everyone was utterly stunned by the nature of the attack and the result. Even Wu Hou and Ming Hou, were at a loss.
The three spirit generals behind the starry door, were like three wooden puppets aligned perfectly, all of them had the same stunned face.
“Do we need to consider increasing his meal standards?” Bing gasped, he had taken so many recruits, but had never seen anyone before who could use their teeth to bite and break the opponent’s sword.
And everything was because of one steamed bun…
The normally cultured and refined Magic Flute’s current expression was extremely sluggish.
Ghost Claw suddenly said: “Never ever underestimate a dedicated foodie regarding food!”
Shua, Bing and Magic Flute both turned their gaze at the same time, their surprised look staring at Ghost Claw.
Ghost Claw treated the situation lightly, and was unruffled.
It was strangely quiet, the two elders were apparently shocked by Tang Tian.
Exactly at this moment, Qing Luan rushed over holding a big bag, panting. She had urgently rushed to the kitchen, swept everything that could be eaten in the bag, and then grabbed the bag and ran back with all her might, she was completely oblivious to what had happened.
The bag held so much that it was taller and bigger than her, it looked like she was carrying a small mountain when she ran over.
The cloth bag was thrown onto the floor, Qing Luan gasping for breath: “See if it is enough?”
In the midst of the deadly silence, her voice was very loud.
The cloth bag was opened, and a mountain of food appeared before everybody, all sorts of meat, vegetables and fruits piled up like a mountain, it was taller than her.
Tang Tian who was currently chewing the steamed bun, eyes suddenly expanded, the originally faint green eyes suddenly released an even brighter ray of light, he bellowed, rushing straight for the mountain of food like a wild beast.
He devoured ravenously, like a gale sweeping up the dead leaves, causing people’s hair to stand, the distinct chewing sound spreading across the entire field. Tang Tian’s big mouth was like a black hole, once entered nothing could come out, Tang Tian did not even spit out the bones.
Everyone could not stop reliving the scene where the sword was broken, causing their heads to feel numb.
Qing Luan just noticed that the surroundings were extremely quiet beyond normal, and Tang Tian was crouched there acting as though there was nobody else present and happily chewing, and immediately became at a loss.
How could Qing Luan ever had experienced such a situation?
The scene before her was so strange that she almost wanted to start crying.
Everyone’s gaze was focused on her, yet nobody said a thing, so much that not even one sound was made from them.
Qing Luan looked at the young lady pleadingly, but she was nowhere better, her eyes were wide opened, as she just stood there stunned watching Tang Tian eating like a wolf.
She was dumbstruck by the scene of Tang Tian biting off Xia An’s steel sword.
After half a day, did she finally reacted, a ray of light erupted from her eyes, her emotion was stirred, little teacher was….too domineering!
It was definitely domineering.
The 2 strongest Master Hous of the 13 governments, the 2 elders from the elder’s group, all stood there quietly watching Tang Tian indulge. This scene was already very domineering.
Slowly, the shock in everybody subsided, and everywhere started to buzz with sound.
Everyone suddenly realized, the mountain in front of Tang Tian was gone. Tang Tian laid on the ground, showing off his obvious round tummy, and spreading his hands out.
The young lady only reacted after a while, her face changed, not good, he is falling asleep…
Last time it was her who witnessed him falling asleep in front of her.
The young lady started to panic. This is not the time to be sleeping!
She was prepared to rush forward.
Suddenly three rays of light lit up beside Tang Tian, and 3 spirit generals suddenly appeared out of the light.
Magic Flute gently said to the young lady: “Let him sleep for awhile, he is too tired.”
Ghost Claw had a cold face, his eyes drooping low. Bing was controlling the Saber toothed tiger, glaring around like a tiger watching his prey.
Just as the 3 spirit generals appeared, their aura swept the entire field, those who were getting restless, immediately pulled back. While Wu Hou and Ming Hou’s face changed even more, and the two elders were surprised even further.
They were people who knew what is what, they naturally knew what was powerful.
Such a strong aura!
The one who gently stopped Princess Ming Zhu, Magic Flute, his presence was also out of the ordinary. The mechanical weapon that the mechanic was using, was actually the Southern Cross Army’s self created mechanical weapon!
The only unremarkable one was Ghost Claw, he was a frail and skinny old man, amongst the three, he was the most ordinary. But for some reason, looking at this super ordinary old man, that cold gaze, actually caused everyone to have a feeling that he was confident of his own power.
Wait a minute…
This fellow…actually has 3 spirit generals!
Everyone’s face changed entirely.
Xia An’s face was still showing shame and resentment, from young, he had never received such huge shame, and in front of everybody…
He could imagine, when tomorrow comes, all sorts of information would spread like wings spreading out to take flight. Xia An’s sword was actually broken by a lunatic using his teeth! And that lunatic, actually ate a mountain of meat in front of everybody, then fell asleep!
Upon thinking about it, the anger and shame wormed into his heart.
Xia An bellowed resonated through the entire field, he was in a rage, the true power in his body reaching the peak, becoming as quick as lightning, even though the sword he held was broken, but the power that it was releasing, was actually as powerful as lightning!
Wu Hou’s face fell, not good!
But the distance between him and Tang Tian was currently very far, and in the middle of them was Ming Hou, he was unable to intervene.
Ghost Claw who had his eyes closed suddenly said, while the other two were not so surprised. Ghost Claw was different from Bing and Magic Flute, he was the most badly damaged, and it required him to consume a spirit nucleus every time he came out. Initially Bing did not plan to let Ghost Claw out, but Ghost Claw spoke out on his own, and that was when Bing realized, Ghost Claw’s fighting intent was out!
So Bing did not hesitate to use a spirit nucleus, and summoned Ghost Claw out.
Magic Flute smiled, and automatically retreated a step, showing that he was giving way. Bing followed along and retreated half a step, his face anticipating a good show.
Ghost Claw, whose eyes were always closed, suddenly opened them.
The light in the grey eyes suddenly glowed brighter, his fighting intent much stronger than ever before. He had to admit that Tang Tian’s diligence and hardwork, was stronger than him when he was younger.
Although he did not speak normally, it could all be seen in his eyes.
His own creation had a successor, and for a spirit general like him who was badly injured, it had already exceeded his purpose of ‘living’. That was his own creation, and…
He had a very small selfish wish.
Previously it was just a thought, that was already long forgotten from his memories. Until the day Gu Xue used the Monarch Yearning Strike, his memories were like a flood, in a moment engulfing him.
Grandmaster martial technique!
That was his dream, a dream that he had always left incomplete!
After personally witnessing the Monarch Yearning Strike, this thought had always been stuck in his mind. Especially seeing that Tang Tian was always so hardworking and risking his life, he suddenly had that little thread of hope.
It was like his world was suddenly alive again, his long dead and still heart, was once again beating.
He had found the reason to ‘live’.
The grandmaster grade Fire Scythe Ghost Claw martial technique!
This goal was still far-fetched, but there was nothing compared to this that could push his will to ‘live’.
And the push for him to fight!
In his eyes, Xia An rapidly grew bigger, the astonishing aura and pressure growing stronger, as if that it could blow Ghost Claw away any moment, but Ghost Claw did not move an inch, and his grey eyes seemed to be burning.
Come on! Come on!
The long gone and lonely voice in his heart seemed to be shouting, he felt that his own ice cold heart, was burning like metal!
There are some dreams that will always be that simple!
There are some reasons, that will always be that simple!
There are some battles, that will not let you be yourself!
Ghost Claw suddenly straightened his crooked back, his frail and weak figure, looked valiant and strong again. In that moment, he was the same as when he was in his prime, thirsting for battle! In that moment, he could feel himself being alive!
His five fingers opened up with the friction sound coming out, sounded like a knife unsheathing, resonating throughout the field.
Ghost Claw opened up his arms, his claws like hooks.
Zi la la!
Two rows of eye catching sparks lit up, one left one right, like two rays of fire archs sweeping past. The bright, blazing light caused the people around to be instantly blinded.
Xia An was currently stuck in the air, his sinister face was frozen in place, as he blankly stared at Ghost Claw who was almost within reach, the broken sword in his hand was actually grasped in place by Ghost Claw’s claws, not being able to move a single inch!
He nailed through!
Ghost Claw’s ten fingers had completely bore through his broken sword, all of the ten fingers were stabbed into the blade’s body, and came out of the other side.
Xia An, who did not think about preparing and employed a huge amount of strength to attack, was injured. But at that moment, he had not noticed it, but blankly stared at Ghost Claw who was right in front of him.
How is that possible…
He had clearly used all his strength for that move…
Ghost Claw nudged, and the remaining half of the broken sword, immediately crumbled into pieces.
Xia An’s eyes became bloodshot, both of his hands became golden in color, his palm brandishing into a sword shape, he pierced towards Ghost Claw!
This strike a feast for the eyes, as it was so sudden and fast.
Jet black five fingers which were like hooks, not knowing when were already retracted to his chest, stably blocking Xia An’s sword palm, causing sparks to fly everywhere.
The other claw brought for another wave of sparks, grabbing onto Xia An’s other sword palm!
Xia An’s face finally changed color.
At this moment, he had finally realized the opponent’s strength, it was something he could not possible contend against. Making a prompt decision, he freed himself and retreated, he had finally come to realize, it was better to lose his face than to throw his life away!
In a flash, he had distanced himself over 10 metres.
Although he did not understand why the opponent did not give chase, he could finally exhale and take a breath. Such a far distance, basically the opponent could not do anything to him, and he finally felt that he did the right thing.
Suddenly, his body became unable to move, his facial expression immediately changed to fear.
The dazzling bright light, had instantly engulfed his vision.
His despaired and frightened voice was so weak under the dazzling and piercing light.
When the light finally dispersed, the frail figure stood there high and mightily.
