Unique martial technique, only with a unique martial technique could this be possible!
Those three words, locked down Yong Qiu’s state of mind like a nightmare, his eyes filling with fear. The scene in front of him only further confirmed his fear.
He stared blankly at the sparks that blossomed like fireworks, and Feng Chou’s blade aura that was unable to move forward. The aftermath of the berserk force dispersed everywhere, blowing all the sand up.
The figure that was within the light was fairly discernible, the surrounding blinking fireflies or stars sparks floated down gently, as though they were not of the same world.
Is this a unique martial technique….
Yong Qiu forgot about the battle, the fear in his eyes unknowingly disappeared, as he watched the beautiful scene in front of him.
It is really beautiful….
Suddenly, he was interrupted by a whistling sound of Feng Chou, and felt a different feeling. He looked towards Feng Chou’s body, and was taken aback.
Feng Chou body was continuously releasing grey flames, it was actually… combusting its martial spirit!
Yong Qiu was stunned.
He was not extremely familiar with Feng Chou, as a concealed weapon martial artist, spirit generals were his best helpers. As spirit generals had time limitations, they were considered consumables, and he had used many spirit generals before. Feng Chou was one of the more excellent ones, with eighth level power, and outstanding blade techniques, it was able to help Yong Qiu extremely well.
Yong Qiu barely knew Feng Chou, only that he heard that it was a famous blade user in its previous life.
Feng Chou’s decision on combusting its martial spirit, surprised Yong Qiu. He had summoned many spirit generals before, but there was not one who would voluntarily combust its martial spirit. Spirit generals had intelligence, they knew that after combusting its martial spirit, despite the short gain in power, their life would end!
Feng Chou actually voluntarily chose to combust its martial spirit!
Feng Chou’s entire body was releasing grey flames, within the increased blade aura, its lifeless pupils suddenly seemed to be brimming with life. Once the spirit general combusted its martial spirit, the link between the spirit general and owner would be cut.
Combusting the martial spirit, the True Power on its entire body boiled. Feng Chou looked at Tang Tian in front of him, as countless memories in his past life flooded his mind.
Unique Martial Technique!
His lifelong goal!
He suddenly lowered his head to look at the blade in his hand, something that was so familiar to him, felt so foreign. In his distant memory, which was already very fuzzy, in a place full of snow, a figure of a young man tirelessly training his blade technique, was actually very clear.
Reminiscing of his goals and and ambitions of his youth, his vigorous wild young heart, his mouth exposed a smile.
Such a beautiful time….
Although his desire never came to fruition, but, he did not disappoint that beautiful time!
30 years of being a famous bladesman, he never feasted nor sought pleasure. With his blade as his only companion, he remained lonely till he died. Thinking about his deathbed, his good friend was puzzled and shocked by his decision. His good friend also did not understand his pride on being willing to become a spirit general, being ordered about, being muddleheaded after life?
Feng Chou suddenly raised his head, and looked at Tang Tian’s dazzling and sparkling fireworks.
Because…. I have personally witnessed, a real unique martial technique!
Because…That is a dream which I have never fulfilled in my life!
Even if I die without peace, even if I have to go so low as to serve others, even if all hope is lost….the dreams of my youth will never fade!
Finally I can see it…. It was perfect!
There are no more regrets.
Gazing at the splendid firework like sparks, Feng Chou’s eyes expressed satisfaction. Suddenly, the grey flames on his body increased sharply, his legs becoming so fast that they disappeared, like reaching the limit of a candle.
Feng Chou’s eyes became high spirited.
Then, let me show you, my blade technique!
Waving the blade in his hand slowly, one blade after another was released!
The blade aura was like snow, layers upon layers, a shade of indigo in between the layers, appeared to be extremely cold and lonely.
The snow like dense layers, looked like a painting.
This is my blade technique, [A Thousand Mountains, The Evening Snow]!
Feng Chou’s ugly face was filled with immense pride.
In the dry desert, snow actually started to float down.
Yong Qiu watched blankly at the combusting figure amidst the snow, watched the blade auras that were drawn like a painting, as though he could not believe his own eyes. He suddenly realized, he might be missing something important.
Tang Tian’s ice blue left eye, released a ripple for the first time.
What he was surprised was not the stunning blade technique of Feng Chou, but the combusting figure. It was as though a soft part in his heart was gently touched, this feeling, was like a ripple that occurred in a lake in Tang Tian’s heart, and his state of mind was once again calm.
Just that, his heart also felt respect.
The beautiful blade auras, gave Tang Tian a feeling of danger like never before. Feng Chou’s True Power could definitely suppress Tang Tian, if not for Tang Tian’s unique martial technique, he was definitely unable to contend against Feng Chou, even the [Concealed Wind] and [Air Shield Strike Technique] was useless against it.
But facing Feng Chou who had let go of everything and combusted himself, Tang Tian was forced to a desperate situation!
Tang Tian who was extraordinary calm, used the Heavenly Light Pellet Crane without hesitation. A crane cry sounded out inside his body, and the True Power of the Heavenly Light Pellet came gushing out like a tide, immediately entering every part of his body.
The surging True Power entered his body, causing Tang Tian’s left eye to become even more pure blue.
The abundant True Power caused Fire Scythe Ghost Claw’s might to increase.
Tang TIan’s sixth level of True Power was currently his biggest shortfall. Fire Scythe Ghost Claw was originally a seventh level martial technique, and he had to use it with difficulty. And by combusting his True Power, it had transformed Fire Scythe Ghost Claw into a unique martial technique, but at the same time, the requirement for True Power became even higher.
After the evolution of the Peacock, the endless Peacock True Power caused Tang Tian’s power to increase exponentially.
But now that the Peacock armor was destroyed, and without the Peacock True Power, Tang Tian’s True power was insufficient, and once again exposed to this weakness, he had no choice but to use the Heavenly Light Pellet Crane.
The surging True Power caused his ice blue vision to become even clearer.
The beautiful blade aura when seen from the ice blue vision, its speed got analyzed. The ice blue eyes showed a trace of admiration.
A blade technique crafted with a talented heart and after being polished and trained thousand times!
The layers of blade auras, piled up generously to a shocking degree. The bit of touch between the layers had instigated a locking reaction. The most miraculous thing was, all these blade auras that looked as though it had many weaknesses and loopholes, was actually a trap.
If the opponent was to attack these traps, the layers of blade auras would collapse, and would cause a loud bang.
But… that did not mean that it had no loopholes!
Tang Tian’s left eye was able to play down the speed of the blade auras, and in his vision, they became translucent with lines and fulcrums. All the simple lines were like minute poles, balanced layers upon layers, to perfect equilibrium.
Tang Tian’s gaze landed on all the fulcrums between the blade auras.
[King Peacock Eyes]!
Suddenly, Tang Tian had an enlightenment. King Peacock eyes could pry into methods to break martial techniques below the unique martial technique grade.
Under the ice cold calmness, Tang Tian could make accurate judgements. The blade techniques of Feng Chou, were extremely close to being a unique martial technique, roughly at the standard of [Concealed Wind] and [Air Shield Strike Technique].
All these seemingly simple layers of balanced poles, took Feng Chou countless hours of sweat and tears.
The fulcrums were the perfect targets, but Feng Chou had spent so much time on [A Thousand Mountains, The Evening Snow], how could he not know the importance of the fulcrums? So he knew that he had to protect them.
If Tang Tian’s True Power was the same as Feng Chou, then using with just Fire Scythe Ghost Claw, he could directly attack those fulcrum points.
Using strength to break through would always be the best way!
But sadly, his True Power was far from Feng Chou, and by attacking the fulcrum points, he would be countered by the dense blade auras that would explode on him.
Thus his target was the fulcrum points underneath Feng Chou’s left ribs, roughly half an inch of space.
He turned his body, and appeared like a demon right at that spot, the sparks of Fire Scythe Ghost Claw piercing through in a flash.
Feng Chou was taken aback, he did not understand why Tang Tian would attack there. He did not believe Tang Tian could see through [A Thousand Mountains, The Evening Snow], why would Tang Tian do this?
Although he had his suspicions, the blade in his hand reacted to it.
In a flash the blade aura blasted out, the snow white blade aura was like a bloodthirsty shark, brazenly attacking. It was as though the beautiful snow blade had come alive and quickly flying over.
The Sparks of the Fire Scythe Ghost Claw clashed into the snow white blade aura.
Just at this time, The fingers on Tang Tian’s other hand blossomed rays of light.
[Demon King Blazing Firefly]!
Five fireflies gently flew to the fulcrum point below Feng Chou’s left rib. The blade auras surrounding the point were already attracted to Tang Tian’s initial attack, and had became weaker. The five fireflies landed on the point and exploded.
Just then, Feng Chou understood what Tang Tian was trying to do.
Demon King Blazing Fireflies explosion had caused the fulcrum point to collapse, and all the beautiful blade auras had lost control due to it.
The snow white blade auras, scattered with the wind.
The grey flames on Feng Chou, had already burnt to his chest, he had not a bit of anger, but laughed instead.
“I understand it now! I finally understand it now! hahahaha!”
The sky filled of blade auras disappeared, and Feng Chou was burnt to the point where he was only left with a head, floating in the sky. He had already combusted neck down.
“Thank you!” Feng Chou suddenly smiled at Tang Tian.
The ugly face actually had a serene and satisfied look.
Achieving my dream before burning up all of my martial spirit, I am really happy….
Suddenly, out of the corner of his eye, a figure flashed past.
Tang Tian suddenly appeared in front of him, extended out his hand, and grabbed him by his forehead.
Feng Chou was suspicious, what is he trying to do? He did not show any more signs of threat….
Suddenly, a wave of bizarre energy enveloped him, and he momentarily went blind, finding himself in a completely foreign place.
In the vast hall, a poker face spirit general stood there quietly.
Suddenly, Feng Chou could sense a difference. The expression on his face immediately turned to shock. The grey flames that had burned to his head, had slowly disappeared.
How could the combustion of the martial spirit be cut short? Absolutely impossible!
Upon combustion, unless it was finished, the martial spirit would not stop burning.
But, the grey flame was extinguished….
Where…where is this?
The poker face exposed a wide smile.
