Ling Xu’s situation was much better than Tang Tian.
Single Blade’s blade technique were quick and agile, his changes of movements were extremely weird, causing Ling Xu to be secretly surprised. But, his Pointed Sea Spears were like the nemesis of the blade technique. His Pointed Sea Spears were constantly changing, and would not be influenced by the opponent.
Single Blade was also surprised, A cavalry such like Ling Xu, their spear techniques were usually fierce and in a straight line, but he did not expect that Ling Xu’s spear techniques, were all over the place, full of twists and turns, which was unconventional.
The Pointed Sea Spears was like a swamp, with a suction force seemingly coming out from it. For some reason, when the spear aura swept past a few times, Single Blade’s heart would immediately be filled with an extremely strong feeling of danger.
Single Blade’s heart was alarmed, he knew it could not go on like that any further.
On his face, black and yellow traces suddenly appeared, like the markings of a bee.
Ling Xu’s heart suddenly trembled, the opponent’s Qi suddenly became even more swift and agile, and he could not lock him down at all.
Suddenly, Ling Xu’s eyes retracted, Single Blade’s right hand disappeared in the air.
Without waiting for him to respond, a clump of fine blade aura suddenly appeared in front of his face. Every piece of the blade aura was roughly the size of a small fingernail, but with its quantity and being densely packed together, it looked like a bike of hornets. Countless cold auras flashed amongst some of the blade auras. One look and anyone could tell it was extremely dangerous.
[Blade of Bees]!
The blade aura that resembled a swarm of bees was extremely fine and thick. When the spear aura crashed onto it, it caused countless sparks to be produced. The volume shrunk by half, but it broke through Ling Xu’s Pointed Sea Spears.
Ling Xu was taken for surprise, with a thought, Flamingo instantly retreated. His fingers constantly twisted, and im a moment his spear auras was released again.
Only after breaking through two layers of the spear sea consecutively did the blade of bees disappear.
Single Blade did not give chase. He too needed to take a breath. Ling Xu’s Pointed Sea Spears was filled with a viscous attractive force, if he was somewhat careless, he would be caught into the technique. This was the first time he was experiencing such a bizarre spear technique.
Both sides quietly stared at each other.
Ling Xu squinted his eyes at Single Blade who was standing straight in front of him. The black and yellow criss cross bee patterns, covered Single Blade’s entire body, making him brightly colored. Ling Xu’s heart had a trace of suspicion, for some reason, the opponent’s blade technique made him feel a sense of familiarity.
This sense of familiarity, came from nowhere. Ling Xu could dare swear that it was his first time meeting such a weird blade technique.
Single Blade felt that the temperature of his blood was slowly dropping, he exposed a smile filled with cold intent, and he tightened the grip of his blade.
Single Blade’s figure disappeared.
Ling Xu’s heart jumped, at the same time, a cold intent emerged from behind his neck.
Without thinking, Ling Xu immediately lowered his body, and went to a crawling posture on Flamingo’s back.
A fine blade aura swept past the top of his head, the cold blade aura caused Ling Xu’s hair to stand. A lump of silver hair on the back of his head was cut off, and drifted with the wind.
Ling Xu had plenty of fighting experience, and Flamingo communicated with him through his thoughts. It did not move forward, but suddenly jumped backwards.
Single Blade’s second attack struck the air, and his heart was taken aback. Many martial artists, upon meeting a sneak attack from the back, their first reaction would be to move forward, to try and escape the enemy.
Ling Xu’s unpredictable action, allowed him to have the time to catch his breath.
The Pointed Sea Spears erupted out again.
Single Blade’s figure disappeared, but this time Ling Xu was prepared, he gently twisted his fingers, and Pointed Sea Spears transformed into a sphere shaped spear attack, covering his entire surroundings.
Regardless of where Single Blade was going to sneak attack from, he would be exposed to the canopy of spears.
Eh, where is he.
Ling Xu suddenly realized, Single Blade had disappeared, and his face instantly changed, not good, above me!
The shadow beneath his feet started to saturate.
Using his extreme speed, Single Blade raised the blade in his hand high, countless fine blade auras that resembled a swarm of black bees buzzed around his blade.
[Cloud Blade of Bees]!
The eyes of single blade flashed a cold aura, he had decided to end the battle quickly. The [Cloud Blade of Bees] consumption of Qi was immense, and Single Blade rarely used it. But the first to have miscalculated, the one who got broken through, was actually the head Meng Wei.
His hand, using a minimal range of movements, formed countless of minute blade auras, all of them continuously spitting out from his blade body, and all entering the [Cloud Blade of Bees].
The Cloud of blades became more and more condensed, while Single Blade exposed a strained expression. His gaze was fixed on Ling Xu.
Go and die!
Single Blade who was dropping down from the skies, exposed a strict expression, and fiercely chopped downwards.
For some reason, Ling Xu who was below him exposed a weird look.
“Hey, Zhuo Yan, what’re you doing?” Ouyang Shi glanced at Zhuo Yan who was watching the screen with a weird face: “Are you not going to rest? You have your test in the afternoon.”
“I am watching people fight.” Zhuo Yan did not turn his head to reply, he looked rather delicate and pretty, with a refined look, holding onto a bucket of puffed rice(popcorn), and said while speaking: “All the tests are always on the same o’ things, why the need to rest?”
Ouyang Shi wanted to cry, to think that he forgot that he was talking to a scholar.
Without looking at Ouyang Shi, Zhuo Yan spoke with the puffed rice in his mouth: “This can be hailed as the fight that will transform everything. The big powerhouses under the heavens will change from here on out. Be passionate, young man; if you miss this battle, that will be the regret of your life…”
Ouyang Shi was slightly moved, but after thinking about the teacher who would be the examiner of the afternoon test, his heart shivered.
If the scholar does not take the test, the teacher will just talk to him.
If Ouyang does not take the test, The teacher will beat him to death.
‘I almost made a huge mistake, I must definitely not be swayed by this asshole, but….’
“Where is the battle?” Ouyang Shi asked, he hated himself for not being disciplined enough.
“Lupus Constellation.” Zhuo Yan did not notice Ouyang Shi’s change of expression, his attention was fully on the screen.
“Ha!” Ouyang Shi thought he finally found an opportunity to mock the scholar, so he earnestly accused: “Brat, you must put your heart in the right place! Lupus Constellation? What rural place is that? To be able to inflict a heaven changing transformation? Only constellations such as ours, of The 12 Ecliptic Palaces, have the qualifications to do so!”
“Wu…..” Zhuo Yan’s reply caused Ouyang Shi to feel that Zhuo Yan did not even listen to his “teachings”. Just as Ouyang Shi was about to attack the fellow once again, Zhuo Yan suddenly opened his mouth: “Talking about it, that fellow holding the blade, seems like he has the blood meridians of the Qiao Feng Constellation.”
(TN: I could not find the real constellation of 雀蜂, I doubt it’s real…If anyone knows of it, please do let me know!)
Ouyang Shi was shocked, and shook his head: “How is that possible? Weren’t they annexed by our Aries Constellation? Hey, did you learn your history for nothing?”
Qiao Feng Constellation was an ancient constellation that disappeared. If it was another constellation, Ouyang Shi might not know, but for Qiao Feng Constellation, every student of Aries Constellation knew of it, because the one who annexed Qiao Feng Constellation was the Aries constellation.
Suddenly Ouyang Shi thought of the identity of the scholar in front of him, feeling that it was impossible for him to make a mistake, he moved closer. When he saw the single armed swordsman, he could not help but exclaimed out.
“That IS the blood meridian of Qiao Feng Constellation!”
“It is, it is.” Zhuo Yan said very quickly, the speed so fast it was as if he had fireworks in his mouth, exploding out in a straight line, flying out from his mouth, he blabbered: “Qiao Feng Constellation, should we go and capture that guy to research? This is hard to come by opportunity. The origins of our Aries Constellation and Qiao Feng Constellation are very deeply connected, who knows, we might find something interesting from it…”
Ouyang Shi’s heart was stirred, but he kept his calm, and he kept telling himself: “Don’t go, don’t go…..
“What about the test?”
Once he said that, Ouyang Shi wanted to find a piece of Tofu to smash himself to death.
(TN: meant that he found himself saying something really stupid)
“Test? There is such a good opportunity in front of you, and you’re actually still thinking about the test? Is your mind that shallow? Ok, I admit I have seen wrong in you! At most it is just a month of bittership, and that is the harshest punishment we can face, senior, think about it, with this one month of bitter work, exchanged for a once in a blue moon opportunity, for what reason would you reject…”
Zhuo Yan starting spouting out a huge amount of words, immediately causing Ouyang Shi to feel blur.
“Ok! I’ll go!”
Once he said that, Ouyang Shi immediately woke up from his slurred state, and immediately regretted it, and said: “What I meant was…”
Zhuo Yan patted heavily on Ouyang Shi’s shoulder, and interrupted, a face full of revere towards Ouyang Shi: “As expect of Senior Ouyang! Your intellect and drive is not something the other students have. Dream, your dream is so worthy of admiration! Only people like you, are fit to have such dreams. We will definitely return with a rewarding journey, and at that time, everyone will be so surprised by our findings, that even Senior Ji Ling would be so surprised and admire senior’s achievements, she will definitely fall head over heels for senior. Now we only have one simple problem, our travel expenses! We only need 600 thousand star coins, to be able to fulfil this grand plan!”
Ji Ling…. A figure appeared in Ouyang Shi’s mind, and out of passion, he blurted out.
“I have one million star coins!”
Zhuo Yan clapped his hands, and vehemently replied: “Now that even our last hurdle is gone, what can stop us from realising our grand plan? Time is of the essence, Senior Ouyang, let us move out!”
Only after Ouyang Shi stepped out of the door, did he finally regained his senses.
His expression froze on his face, wait a minute, what did I just see….
“I just knew it, senior. You’re so heroic, you definitely will not look forward and back, and definitely not fear the unknown. Because Senior keeps his promises, and with every saliva of yours, you can pin down simple men…”
But Zhuo Yan and Ouyang Shi did not notice that, on the screen behind them, a monstrous face had appeared on Ling Xu.
Meng Wei looked at Tang Tian in shock.
Tang Tian’s left eye, had suddenly become blue, glowing like ice cold sapphire.
It was the same face, that was still dripping with perspiration, but he had an ice cold and indifferent look, as though the young man standing in the air had changed to another person.
How can a person’s temperament, have such drastic changes?
Meng Wei’s heart was shaking indescribably, Tang Tian who was in front of her was brimming with a dangerous aura.
His ice blue left eye…..could that be….
From a distance, at a different corner, many voices started speaking.
Pavo Constellation, Lang Yu who was sitting inside the palace hall watching the battle suddenly stood up. He stared at Tang Tian in the screen, his face in disbelief: “King Peacock Eyes!”
Qiu Zhi Jun’s eyes suddenly exploded out with light, his robes flew out as he rushed forward, his mouth saying three words: “King Peacock Eyes!”
King Peacock Eyes!
