Guang Wu looked at the white robed young man seated on the Flamingo in alarm.
After consecutively exchanging over 20 attacks, Ling Xu was still fine, without signs of fatigue. From the start, Guang Wu thought Ling Xu was strong, but he still had the confidence to suppress him. Especially when Ling Xu’s True Power was less vigorous than his, Guang Wu viewed it as a weakness.
Facing an opponent with weaker True Power, the best method would be to clash head on, abandon all the stylish attacks, and use force to gain victory.
So, Guang Wu, who was experienced, did not hesitate to start clashing.
But after over 20 attacks, Ling Xu’s qi meridians were not in the least bit exhausted at all. On the contrary, he was getting more and more brave, the power of his spear getting heavier and heavier.
What kind of freak was this fellow?
No wonder Guang Wu was suspicious, on his blood blade, there were a few traces of silver scars, and no matter how hard he tried to urge his True Power, he was unable to remove them. What were they?
Ling Xu stroked the silver spear in his hands, his blazing orange pupils appeared to show an indescribable firmness.
The dreams of the [Hercules’ Nightmare] was as if it was a lifetime ago. The bedevilment in his heart was far stronger than ordinary people, so the fight in the [Hercules’ Nightmare] was extremely bitter for him.
Silver Frost Mount, his bedevilment was actually the Silver Frost Mount.
“Silver spear should be as soft as snow, and be as pure as the clouds. Sheep Horn Wind Bells, the cool breeze will never capture your sound. The sun shines, but no shadows can be overcast, for the spear will always be too straight. Overwhelm my heart, stars protect my soul….”
(TN: I have decided to change from the original sentence to the current one. This feels more fluid and oriented to Chinese. The meaning still stands.)
The melodious song kept playing continuously in the [Hercules’ Nightmare]. The grey, vague image and his overwhelming spear intent caused his heart and soul to quiver.
After bitterly training his spear technique, his comprehension of the Pointed Sea Spears of Silver Frost Mount, no, Aries Spear of Stars, was enlightened extremely quickly. Gradually, Ling Xu could feel the profound mysteries of the Aries Spear of Stars.
His Pointed Sea Spears were continuous and unending, which seeks victory through quantity. But the Aries Spear of Stars was completely different. It was said to change the complicated to simple, the spear aura was like stars, every spear was extremely heavy. Borrowing the momentum as a cavalry mount, the power of the spear was much stronger. The moment he started fighting with the Silver Frost Mount, Ling Xu immediately experienced the Silver Frost Mount’s spear tip, causing him to fly out directly.
The fine spear tips had an accumulated force that was terrifying.
Ling Xu suspected that what his Teacher passed down was not complete. The difference between Pointed Sea Spears and Aries Spear of Stars was only a few minor differences, but yet the result was two totally different types of spear techniques.
Ling Xu, who was infatuated with his new spear technique, greedily and crazily absorbed everything.
He did not remember how many times he fought inside the dream, he fought and copied the techniques without caring about fatigue, as he practiced the Aries Spear of Stars.
He could not understand why his own bedevilment would be the Silver Frost Mount. He thought his bedevilment would be the traitor. But, inside Hercules’ nightmare, there was not much time for him ponder.
He finally emerged out of the bitter fight. Heaving a sigh of relief, he raised his spirits.
Ling Xu looked at Guang Wu, who was in front of him, feeling extremely happy. He was suppressed in the Hercules’ Nightmare from start to end, and did not win against the Silver Frost Mount, and did not know how he managed to get out of it.
But after being suppressed for so many days, even when he knew that the opponent was the legendary Silver Frost Mount, Ling Xu’s heart still stifled an evil fire. His character was fiery and explosive, anything that made him unhappy, he would want to make a move. The evil fire in his heart, being helpless against his powerful enemy, only caused it to become stronger.
Guang Wu’s intent to meet force with force, was also his wish.
And, although the Hercules’ Nightmare aided him in training his spear techniques, it was still in a sort of dreamlike state, and was not real. Ling Xu touched his silver spear. Although the feeling was familiar, it was still different from inside the dreamland.
From the start, his spear techniques were somewhat shaky.
As it happened, Guang Wu planned to win by force, and gave him buffer time to continuously withstand 20 attacks, allowing Ling Xu the become more familiar. The concept of the Aries Spear of Stars was gradually unleashed, thus the force of his spear became heavier and heavier.
His silver hair fluttered along with the wind, his face expressing the intent to fight, this type of assault was his favorite way of attacking. In Hercules’ Nightmare, he learned an extremely useful practical skill, and that was for the man and mount to be as one!
The Silver Frost Mount had displayed to him what it meant to have the man and mount be as one.
His teacher had passed on early, so the Pointed Sea Spears was mostly him fumbling about. He enjoyed the feeling of assaulting while sitting on Flamingo, but he did not polish on the profound skill behind it.
So the Silver Frost Mount had showed him the power of being one with the mount, which opened his eyes and allowed him to be enlightened on how a mount could be used.
This was Ling Xu’s first time putting it to use.
After being unsuccessful the first few times, it made him grasp a better feel for it. Flamingo was a mechanical beast, but the level of consumption of star rocks for a mechanical beast was not much different from him using True Power.
The most important point of man and mount being as one, was that the usage of True Power between the two must echo each other.
After trying it out multiple times, Flamingo gradually understood Ling Xu’s intent, and the True Power in it’s body suddenly increased.
The blaze of Flamingo suddenly gushed out onto Ling Xu’s body, enveloping Ling Xu entirely. One man and one mount, became a blazing fireball, their might explosively increasing.
Ling Xu was joyous, Success!
Flamingo’s flame did not cause him to feel hot, but it was an indescribably warm and comfortable feeling. Most importantly, the qi of him and Flamingo had become one.
Just like that!
Flamingo was equally excited, when assaulting, it suddenly let out a cry, and increased it’s speed even further!
Ling Xu who was seated on top had his vision become extremely shaky, but his surroundings actually became extremely clear, as though everything was within his palms.
Ling Xu became thrilled, the feeling was too good!
From being somewhat shaky to being familiar, meeting force with force allowed the stifling evil fire in his heart to be cleansed. At the moment, being enlightened on man and mount to be as one caused his entire being to reach its peak, regardless if it was Qi, vigor, or spirit.
The might of the assault had become unprecedented.
Guang Wu’s face changed, he only felt the intense flame rushing towards him. The temperature of the surrounding air seemed to come to a boil, the bone piercing killing intent filled the atmosphere.
He felt as if he was standing in a sea of fire, and started to have the feeling that he had nowhere to hide.
His mind warned him of the unprecedented feeling, he knew it was already time for him to struggle with all his might for his opponent was too strong, to the point that it shook his spirit!
At that moment all he could think of was to retreat, or he would end up dying. Directly fighting for his life might leave him with an opportunity to live. He had killed countless people, and although he was terrified of the imposing might of LIng Xu’s assault, but in that moment, he could still make a judgement.
Guang Wu with his disheveled hair growled, instigated all of his True Power, looking slightly crazy, the clothes all over his body started to swell, as the blood aura suddenly became extremely dense, to the point it became dark red like blood plasma.
The blood aura of his blade was astonishing, as countless blood plasma gathered around the blade’s body, it was as if he just came out from the land of Asura. Even the surrounding light aura was absorbed by the dark red blood aura, becoming pitch black, increasing the strange coldness around.
Traces of immense cold and terrifying dark red light aura flashed past his eyes. He bit down on his lips, keeping some of his blood in his mouth, waiting for the right time.
Just at that moment, Ling Xu moved in.
The raging flames surged, the power surging like thunder accumulating, and a cold aura blossomed inside the red flames.
Inferno Silver Spear!
Guang Wu discarded all the distracting thoughts, suddenly spitting out the blood in his mouth, he burst out: “Chop!”
This was his life saving technique, [Blood Thunder Melody]!
Ling Xu felt his chest tense, the devilish music passed through his brain, in a moment causing all the blood in his body to freeze. He was immediately stunned, what martial technique was that! Just at that moment, the Sheep Horn wind bells on his silver spear suddenly rang extremely softly, but sounded like a clap of thunder in Ling Xu’s ears. He only felt his brain buzz, and then his body relaxed, the strange cold shackles suddenly disappeared.
Guang Wu’s sinister face and the dense blood blade was suddenly right in front him.
Ling Xu instinctively thrust his spear out!
The silver tip that was soaked in the silver liquid, accurately struck Guang Wu’s blood blade edge!
Guang Wu’s sinister face immediately became terrified in disbelief!
The blood blade immediately exploded out into fragments in front of Ling Xu, and without thinking, Ling Xu flicked his wrist.
A regiment of flames stepped on the sand, a red oppressive trace was smeared in the air, and like the wing, it brushed past Guang Wu.
Guang Wu was like a wooden puppet. Maintaining his slashing posture, he did not move an inch.
A few seconds later, a drop of blood started to flow from his forehead.
Guang Wu’s head was instantly smashed without any warning, the headless body fell on the floor like a wooden stake.
Ling Xu stopped and turned, his heart was stirred with a trace of disbelief.
I actually…..actually killed that old man!
Is this Aries Spear of Stars?
Was this the technique of the Silver Frost Mount?
It really… really is strong! Such a strong technique, how could it be defeated?
Teacher, did you see that? Little Xu has become even stronger than before!
He was extremely excited, he had not one drop of True Power left in his body, although his spear was extremely formidable, but it had cleared all of the energy in his body. He did not feel tired at all, his entire being was immersed in the joy and ecstasy.
Yong Xian Zhong, who was leisurely watching the fight suddenly stood up, he watched in shock as Guang Wu fell, as though he was struck by lightning. The attack was simply so extraordinary.
That was Guang Wu….
But Yong Xian Zhong was still accustomed to such a scene. Although his heart was shocked, his face still acted calmly.
He turned his face and looked at the fire that stopped, and was speechless.
The intense flame gradually dimmed down, the white clothed young man’s figure appeared in his vision, exposing a weary look, even the spear in his hand was trembling, as though the attack had consumed everything from him.
Ling Xu did not have any more energy to fight.
Yong Xian Zhong could not feel the least bit of scorn for him. His rank and Guang Wu’s were not far apart, so although Guang Wu could not defend against that assault, would he be able to?
Yong Xian Zhong was not sure.
Who is that boy? What spear technique was that?
Crane was equally surprised, he naturally believed in Ling Xu, but he did not think that Ling Xu would defeat Guang Wu so quickly, and was actually ready to jump in to help.
He did not think that Ling Xu would actually become so strong!
Crane’s calm pupils actually flashed a trace of excitement and fighting intent.
As expected of the descendant of the Silver Frost Mount!
Crane involuntarily clutched the Crane Sword in his hands tightly, and could not help but be overwhelmed by emotions.
Everyone had become strong!
