Bang Bang Bang!
Tang Tian’s messily blocked the attacks of the Stone Gravel Beasts. To him, The attacks from the normal Stone Gravel Beasts were not a big threat, but every time the blood rush shield blocked an attack, a warm flow would enter his body.
This was definitely not a good experience, the scalding, painful feeling, one time after another entered all his muscles and bones. He did not know how the blade shield soldiers of the Ophiuchus Army handled it, but to able to take this pain, they must had been outstanding to do so!
Tang Tian clenched his teeth and persevered.
After giving Bing the invigorating hit last night, it had made him extremely addicted to it. He wished to have another bout at it, and he suspected that the blade shield soldiers from the Ophiuchus Army in the past were addicted to the weird feeling too.
Alright, I shall not think about the Ophiuchus Army….
After sustaining a few hits, Tang Tian realized he had not reached the peak yet.
The Stone Gravel Beast King of the horde noticed Tang Tian earlier, and from the beginning, it was already cautious. But once it realized Tang Tian was just raising the shield, and like a ball being hit around by the Stone Gravel Beasts, he did not have any movements of attack.
It did not hesitate, and decided to attack!
Quietly, it wandered craftily amongst the Stone Gravel Beasts.
When one of the Stone Gravel Beasts raised its boulder fist to attack the blood rush shield, it moved in to attack, its speed faster than any other Stone Gravel Beast, bringing its metal fist, suddenly appearing behind Tang Tian.
This fist did not cause any sound, its shoulder was as flexible as noodles, without any sign it appeared behind Tang Tian. It’s eyes shone with a hint of craftiness, although its power was much stronger than the other Stone Gravel Beasts, why should it face the front of the enemy and attack?
Countless enemies had fallen beneath its feet, it’s horde, was bigger than the other hordes, because it was smarter. Those that believed in their own power, how would they understand the marvel of intellect? Oh, I will definitely not tell them!
The Stone Gravel Beast King happy gaze suddenly congealed, the faint blood red shield, suddenly appeared in front of its fists.
It felt that its fist had just hit onto a tough boulder, no, it was harder than boulders!
Tang Tian was always secretly taking precautions, his intuition was raised to its limits, his messy usage of the shields defensive techniques, if he wished to unleash the power of the shield, he needed to use his high intuition to release it.
Looking at his messy movements, it was because he did not how to use the shield defensive martial techniques.
But, after being tossed around by Bing yesterday, he still managed to polish it a little, as his fundamentals were extremely sturdy. With good fundamentals, adding on his abundant fighting experience, and adding on he had a great training partner, Tang Tian had some results.
Although his blocks were not accurate enough, and definitely not sightly. He was able to block the attacks from the Stone Gravel Beasts, and his movements were rather stable. His outstanding fundamental martial techniques, were showing their results, even though his shield defense techniques were not completely familiarized, but he was able to handle it.
When the Stone Gravel Beast King quietly appeared behind him, Tang Tian already felt its existence.
He immediately raised his guard, blocked the fist of the Stone Gravel Beast, and specially left a bit of strength, and blocked the sneak attack of the Stone Gravel Beast King.
Never did he expect this Stone Gravel Beast King to do a sneak attack!
A surge of large energy flowed from the shield, causing Tang Tian to become stiff, the Stone Gravel Beast King was definitely worthy of its name, the power of the punch, was far stronger than the ordinary Stone Gravel Beasts.
The warm flow scattered throughout Tang Tian’s body, suddenly increasing the amount by a large amount, sii, Tang Tian inhaled cold air, it was so painful he clenched his teeth.
Seeing that its sneak attack that it was proud of failed, the Stone Gravel Beast King was somewhat angry, but with its craftiness and cunning personality, it did not go in full force when attacking Tang Tian.
Tang Tian could only continue using the shield to block.
Very quickly, the Stone Gravel Beast King realized, although this enemy was sturdy, but he did not retaliate. It’s guts gradually grew bigger and bigger, and its attacks became more and more fierce.
Bang Bang Bang!
It was obvious Tang Tian was put in a more difficult situation, but the Stone Gravel Beast King did not notice the persistent face Tang Tian had behind the blood rush shield, that was not panicking at all.
Tang Tian’s body trembled slightly, it was the same feeling he had last night, as the countless minute warm flows started to converge together again, instantly filling up Tang Tian’s body!
Tang Tian’s eyes suddenly lit up.
The Stone Gravel Beast King suddenly realized the enemy in front of it had disappeared, eh…
The front of the shield, fiercely banged into the Stone Gravel Beast Kings forehead.
Like a ripe watermelon suddenly being hit by an iron board, the brains of the Stone Gravel Beast King, immediately crumbled into countless grains of sand.
To be able to fling Bing controlling the Sky Tiger into the sky like an artillery shell, the power in the hit was devastating, and definitely scary. Today after experimenting, this hit to Tang Tian was even more enjoyable, and even stronger.
Xia Yu who was far away swept past by coincidence. Witnessing the universally shocking scene, his entire person was dumbfounded like a statue. Only after a while did his lips tremble again, his eyes that lost focus, slowly regained its senses.
Who exactly…is that brat?
He looked at Tang Tian in fright, that hit was practically not in the laws of humanity. That sudden change in movement, was unreasonable, that amateur posture of holding the shield….
That attack, was like a nightmare that surfaced in front of him. The entire head of the Stone Gravel Beast King, was instantly obliterated into sand! He could not see the technique, could not see the changes of the martial technique, only the force, the barbarous and unreasonable force!
Even now, the Stone Gravel Beast King’s headless body stood in its position, not moving an inch.
For many years, Xia Yu had not received such a scare.
He was definitely a barbarian!
God, I have simply gone crazy, why did I agree with Guo Dong, to make an enemy out of this person?
A scene of his own head being blown off by that blood red shield immediately formed in Xia Yu’s head….
XIa Yu trembled, the black feathers on his body falling off from fright.
“Let’s go!” Blind Chord Old Man said, at that point of time, he could not care about anything else, his dry voice filled with anxiety.
Go? The lady in black was stunned, she subconsciously blurted out: “Master…”
How could Blind Chord Old Man care about her? He had already felt the dangerous aura coming from the people flying towards them at high speed, the strong sense of danger had shrouded his entire body.
It was the strongest feeling of danger he had ever felt!
Blind Chord Old Man knew what that meant, so he did not hesitate to attempt to escape.
At this point in time, the lady in black just realized that a few figures were already reaching them, the dangerous Qi of the opponent caused her to be unable to move.
Crane glanced at the lady in black, the corner of his eye twitching, why is it the same outfit again….
His hand movements were even faster, holding onto his sword hilt, without unsheathing his sword, he moved slightly, and in the sky a white halo light beam appeared. The halo light beam hissed as it flew towards the lady in black.
Her face turned pale, she could only feel that her vision was completely covered by the halo light beam, and what made her panic even more was, she could not move! Her entire body, not even one finger was unable to move.
What…. What sword arts is this?
The halo light beam struck her.
Her entire body went numb, and immediately fainted.
Blind Chord Old man knew that the moment of life and death had come, and this right hand holding the Erhu suddenly pulled onto the strings, Zheng!
A formless wave of energy, scattered forth.
Yi Tian and Hu Xing’s brains vibrated, and their hand movements immediately became sluggish.
Xie Qing’s heart jumped, he vibrated the sword in his hand, the sword cry sounded out in his heart, allowing him to cancel out the sound wave.
Just as the three people were being forced to retreat by Blind Chord Old Man, a black shadow, suddenly rushed forth.
Crane’s expression was solemn, the ancient sword in his hand swung out along with the sheath, and a clear sound of a crane cry, suddenly transmitted out from the sword body!
The air in the five metre circumference, was spurred by Crane’s sword. As countless streams of air rushed forth along Crane’s hand towards the ancient sword, the streams of air converging into a vaguely seen current, Crane who flew out with the sword, was like a big black swan, shaking his feathers!
Crane Sect’s Absolute skill, [Crane Dance]!
Crane was already strong, Tang Tian did not leave anything out and taught all that he knew on the Crane Body Energy to him, where Crane was already so close to learning it from the sect, and after breaking through to learning it, he was welcomed to a brand new wide panorama, where many places which he did not understand, were all completely comprehended by him.
The past few days he had once again learnt the martial techniques of the Crane Sect, once again learning everything once, where he begun to understand everything deeply.
He and Tang Tian were different, he was extremely familiar with all the martial techniques from the Crane Sect, and was just lacking the Crane Body Energy, which was the key to everything. Now that the key had been found and unlocked, in his eyes, all the martial techniques of the Crane Sect, were unprecedentedly clear.
Until this moment, he did not have a profound understanding of the broad and deep Crane Sect’s martial techniques.
Crane Dance was one of them.
The posture of Crane Dance was confident and graceful, something everyone learnt when they were accepted into the sect. But everyone thought, the graceful movements of the Crane Dance were just to toughen the muscles and the bones, until now, in Crane’s hands, with the Crane Body Energy, Crane Dance could finally shine and show off its true power!
Crane Dance was a technique capable of assimilating with the other Crane Sect martial techniques, the quick and graceful postures, were able to let the martial techniques of the Crane Sect become stronger, but harder to improve.
Crane’s sword move, was using the Crane Dance.
Blind Chord Old Man’s expression fluctuated, the broken sound of the sword, pierced into his heart! He could tell from the flutter of Crane’s robes, it was like watching a black swan dancing with its wings, the energy so agile and strong!
The face of the mute servant changed, he was unable to escape at the moment, he flipped the palm-leaf fan in his hands once, causing his palm to ignite and covered in flames, and struck towards Cranes sword. The blaze was tightly plastered to the mute servant’s palms, and the air around it, quickly became red.
Crane’s expression did not change in the slightest, only his pupils, were so bright that no one could stare straight at them.
His heart was extremely excited, for he was able to use the real martial techniques of the Crane Sect, he was able to use the real complete martial techniques of the Crane Sect!
From this day onwards, Crane Sect will once again be revived with glory!
Today’s battle, is the first battle where Crane Sect has found their honor!
Crane was extremely emotional, the Crane Body Energy in his body was roused to its maximum, the ancient sword in his hand trembled, and released a tall, upright and unyielding sword cry that pierced the heavens!
Crane’s Cry to the 9th heaven!
