Dominating Sword Immortal - Chapter 207
Chapter 207: Competitions (Part Three)
Translator: Sheryl Editor: Hitesh
Turning her head to look for Ye Chen, Guo Lanyue thought to herself, 'You see? This is the
power of our Seven Nights. Each one of them is the top of the top young generation. In the
whole South Rudra region, even the rank 6 martial institutions could not compete with the
Moon Pavilion. The Seven Nights are destined to become famous around the world.'
’’Hey! Executive Guo! Stay with us!’’
The Sixth Night took care of a rank 6 beast that was attacking towards Guo Lanyue who was
looking for Ye Chen, reminding her that she was still in a battle.
Guo Lanyue smiled with a little bit of embarrassment. There were too many people and beasts,
and Ye Chen seemed to prefer to lay low. She could not find him anywhere.
Among the younger generation, the person with the highest profile was indeed the warrior who
was ranked twenty-five in the last Hidden Dragon Rank - Wu Liangyu. He moved his wings, as
the pitch-black light brightened. Endless angled attacking waves were layered together,
forming a typhoon like attack. It kept attacking the beast wave after wave.
’’That is so crazy! This one attack killed at least hundreds of beasts, which included three rank 6
’’The Crow Man had become so famous around the South Rudra region because of his Black
Crow Great Art, and now Wu Liangyu has become even stronger than the young Crow Man. A
typical peak-level Late Clasping Yuan Realm warrior could probably not beat him.’’
’’The tenth level of Black Crow Great Art, how depressing it is for the rest of us?’’
Looking at those deep marks all over the ground, all the warriors nearby could not help but
think. 'How impressive! This guy is the top warrior of the young generation that had come to
the Gold Tripod City after all. This Hidden Dragon Rank, he could probably reach the top
twenties, maybe even top fifteen! It will shock the whole South Rudra region!
’’Huh! Murong Qingcheng, in the competition of that last Hidden Dragon Rank, I knew you did
not use all your strength. You had only used the sixth realm of your Sky Demon Great Art
instead of the seventh realm that you had already reached. And right now, you should probably
be at the eighth realm already. Although the Sky Demon Great Art is only a top rank Earth
Realm martial skill, there should not be too big of a gap. With the tenth level of my Black Crow
Great Art, I will definitely beat you for real this time. Not only will I beat you, but I will also
show you my power and make you mine! As for the upcoming Hidden Dragon Rank
competitions, I will definitely make it into the top ten. Moreover, with the secret arts that I had
prepared especially for that competition, who in the top ten could be my opponent?’’ Wu
Liangyu could not be more proud. The Black Crow Man had three disciples. The other two had
only trained the Black Crow Great Art to its seventh or eighth level. He was the only one who
had reached the tenth level. Mastering a top rank Earth Realm Martial Art to its tenth level
within two years of time, it was definitely a short time for it.
Imagining himself in that competition of Hidden Dragon Rank, Wu Liangyu could not help but
A black blasting wave spread out from Wu Liangyu's body. All of the beasts that had surrounded
him were all blown away. Their bodies had all been shattered while they were in the sky.
’’Lone Peak Kill!’’
Giving up on the wide-range attacks, Ye Chen focused on the preparation of fusing his Lone
Peak Thirteen Swords. His body shifted everywhere; each step he took he would throw out a
sword attack with his Star Scar Sword. And with one sword attack being thrown out, a beast
would be killed, even those at rank 6 level.
’’Faster! Faster! It has to be faster!’’
Directly starting from the sword movement was quite slow for the fusing part, so Ye Chen
thought of another way. He wanted to use his fastest speed to perform his Lone Peak Kill, and
then maybe he could sense that extreme Zen from that extreme fast speed. And his Lone Peak
Kill was just lacking that little Zen. Only by understanding the Zen would he be able to fuse the
Lone Peak Kill faster.
Shoo! Shoo! Shoo!
Ignoring people's confusion, Ye Chen had performed his Separating Flying Art to its limit. His
sword light kept flashing like the stars in the sky. Each sword had been stabbed out at different
angles, but one could easily tell the similarity between each sword attack.
Beasts after beasts fell down, each wound on their bodies being fatal.
’’What a sharp sword art this person has? One sword attack takes out one beast?’’
’’Yah, you are right! If I were his opponent, I would not be able to dodge that sword attack. And
although those sword attacks seemed to be thrown at a regular speed, it still somehow gives me
’’It was regular speed? Why would I feel it was so fast that I could barely follow?’’
’’Yah! It was super fast!’’
’’It was not that fast, I reckon...’’
The beasts in the front were not high ranked ones, and the rare rank 6 beasts that had attacked
towards them had also been killed by the mighty warriors. So, a lot of the warriors were not
stressed out at all. They started to put their attention onto the young generation. There were a
lot of people watching Ye Chen. But soon, they began to argue whether Ye Chen's sword attacks
were fast or not. Some of the people thought it was extremely fast, while the others disagreed.
’’No! I feel like his sword attacks are getting faster!’’
’’That's weird. Why do I feel it's getting slower and slower?’’
Soon, they started another argument.
Ye Chen did not care for people's discussion. He carried on doing whatever he was doing.
A rank 6 beast did not react on time, and a couple of holes appeared on its neck while the blood
kept shooting out.
’’Indeed. It is working.’’
Ye Chen did not put in too much thought when he threw out the last sword attack. However, its
speed and power were surprisingly powerful, and even a rank 6 beast was not able to react
before it got killed.
’’But, I am still stuck at learning the extreme Zen. Maybe, I should start thinking in the opposite
direction... learning the extreme fast from the extreme Zen.’’
Ye Chen somehow seemed extra calm while thoughts kept flashing through his brain. It was
like he was his own audience, that he was only watching himself performing the Lone Peak Kill.
Listening to his own voice in his mind, he could not feel more at peace.
In most people's eyes, the sword in Ye Chen's hand had disappeared. That beast in front of him
had lost the hope to live, and all the other beasts around them had become slower and slower.
The only thing that had not slowed down was the sword in Ye Chen's hand, which even though
was invisible at this point. If it wasn't for the fact that each sword he threw out would bring up
small patterns in the air, there was no way that the crowd would be able to tell if there was a
sword in his hand or not. And the most frustrating thing was that even though a lot of people
were able to see through the route of that sword attack, somehow those beasts seemed to be
even faster than them, jumping in front of the tip of the sword.
’’How bizarre! Have you noticed that?’’
There were a lot of Clasping Yuan Realm warriors that had come to the Gold Tripod City, which
included a lot of peak-level Late Clasping Yuan Realm warriors who were even more powerful
than most of the young Hidden Dragon Rank warriors. Some of them could even kill the top
rank 6 beasts such as Wind Wolf, Demonic Bear. Ten meters away, there were indeed two people
like that watching Ye Chen at the moment. The guy on the left said as he frowned after killing a
rank 6 beast casually.
’’His sword art is sometimes fast sometimes slow... he must be trying to figure something out!’’
’’My old pal, I think you are wrong this time. Actually, his sword art was at the same speed the
whole time. Maybe only one sword attack sometimes was super fast.’’
’’Eh? Let me see.’’
After hearing his friend's opinion, the person on the right was intrigued.
Soon, he said as he forced a smile, ’’Indeed, you were right. It turned out I had been fooled by the
intent of that sword art. Most of the times, his sword art had not changed at all... I wonder what
kind of intent is that?’’
’’Making people feel it is sometimes fast, sometimes slow... I think it would be the poetic
’’The Poetic Prospect?’’ That person looked at the speaker in shock. The two had a similar
cultivation which was the peak-level Late Clasping Yuan Realm. But he knew that the other
person was able to kill the Ancient Breed Wind Wolf, who was also way more experienced. With
his eyes, he would be able to tell more then he knew. So he was really intrigued and wanted to
hear the explanation.
The other person shook his head, ’’The mountains and the rivers are sometimes far or
sometimes close, and the sword art would seem sometimes fast and sometimes slow. In
another word, it indicates the illusion of space. If you are standing close by, the sword would
obviously arrive faster; if you are standing quite far, then the sword would arrive one step
slower. The young man had used the poetic prospect to perform his sword art, which would
create an illusion of the conception of space. It could confuse its opponent and make them
make a bad judgment, which is quite scary. Think about this, if a warrior was temporarily
confused about the space around him, what would happen?’’
The person on the right let out a breath and said, ’’It will lead to his death, of course.’’
’’Indeed. If this man keeps growing at this rate, his sword art will grow to an incredible level
which would be unimaginable.’’
’’That magical? Weren't you able to tell the trick by only a single look?’’
’’Guilty. I was once honored to talk to a sword artist who had mastered the sword intent. He said
that holding a sword in one's hand would create a distance between him and the opponent
without weapons and that distance would represent space. Therefore, sword artists should
train to use that space. If they don't put the effort in training the sense of space, then their
sword intent would just be like beasts locked in the cages. Their whole life would be limited.’’
’’Sword artist with fully mastered sword intent?! Umm...these people are mental. Well, they are
still quite rare. They all say that there are three thousand primary styles of martial arts, but
each style has a different developing path. Among those three thousand, the sword art is
definitely focused on killing. One sword attack kills one person, ten sword attacks kill ten
people, which would be the killing machine as it's expected.’’
’’The sword artists who truly master the sword intent would be the true sword artists. Only they
would be able to train their sword art to the higher level and only they would be able to see
through the sword intent.’’
Ye Chen did not hear the two. If he could hear them, he would have been surprised. He had just
learned about the illusion of space after he fused his Lone Peak Thirteen Swords. He would have
been shocked if he learned about the fact that they knew about this already, and even in greater
Actually, Ye Chen had no idea about who powerful he truly was. The real sword artist would
only realize the use of the illusion of space after they mastered the sword intent. However, he
had only trained to forty percent, and had already made a breakthrough in his sword intent. If
that sword artist who had mastered the sword intent knew about this, he would have been even
more shocked. Only people who did not use the sword and had little idea about this would not
pay any attention to it at all.
’’Fast as it was slow, slow but still fast. I think I have already reached that poetic prospect. I still
need a little bit something before I am able to combine the two.’’
Before he realized it, Ye Chen had already fused the tenth movement of the Lone Peak Thirteen
Swords, which brought the power of the Lone Peak Kill to the next level. It also allowed him to
have a deeper understanding of the fast-slow illusion also known as the Poetic Prospect.
Unfortunately, space never changed, what changed were the people. When facing a powerful
opponent, it would be harder to fool him; when facing a sword artist when the same level of
sword intent, its effect would also not be as efficient, which would not be able to kill the
opponent with one sword attack.
’’Faster! Faster! Faster!’’
’’Slower, slower, slower!’’
Ye Chen was slightly confused. He kept performing that one sword attack repeatedly, hoping to
make some new discoveries in order to have the opportunity to make a breakthrough.
All the beasts who were trying to attack Ye Chen were quite frustrated. If Ye Chen was using all
his power to kill them, they would only feel powerless. However, now Ye Chen would not give
them any chance, throwing out causal attacks as all the beasts would just be killed without
knowing how. Their darkened pupils reflected all their fellow beasts' figures continuously
being killed and falling down onto the ground just like themselves.
The battles lasted from the noon to the evening. Millions of beasts had been killed, and so did a
lot of warriors as well. The ground was covered by unrecognizable flesh and broken weapons.
The blood was flooding the area like a river, dying the ground around the Gold Tripod City a
bloody red, which looked extremely frightening.
Ye Chen, who never seemed to be tired, was still flying everywhere. And wherever the sword
light touched, there would be the manifestation of death.
One could easily realize that his sword art had made some improvement, giving people a really
casual feeling. It looked like Ye Chen did not spend any effort at all. Right then, Guo Lanyue had
finally found Ye Chen.
