Realms In The Firmament - Chapter 241
Chapter 241 - Use You To Break Through 1
The thing that a woman cares the most was her appearance. And then it boiled down to the weight and the waist. Ye Xiao had actually offended Wen-Ren Chu-Chu on both. That was certainly asking for a beating.
A while ago, Wen-Ren Chu-Chu was a bit jealous. She just didn't think it would be appropriate to say it out. Now it was her chance to beat him up.
Her attacks were fast like the winds and heavy like the storms. From top to bottom, she used her fierce spiritual power to lock the space. Apparently, she was trying to prevent Ye Xiao from dodging away.
At the beginning of the fight, Ye Xiao was able to handle it easily. He didn't need to fight with full effort. One reason was that he had been so close to the Grade of Tianyuan. That meant he was much improved than usual this time. There was another reason. It was that Wen-Ren Chu-Chu's attacks were immature for Ye Xiao, even though her attacks should be almost perfect in the Land of Han-Yang. Ye Xiao could defend against her attacks with both his eyes closed. The Xiao Monarch had been through countless of battles. He used to fight a lot. He had seen so many outstanding attacks.
And Wen-Ren Chu-Chu was merely a young disciple in the Misty Cloud Palace.
Practice makes perfect. No matter how good a martial art was, it would bring different impacts in different people's hands. For example, Bing Xin-Yue and Wen-Ren Chu-Chu, Ye Xiao could easily handle Wen-Ren Chu-Chu, but he truly didn't have the confidence to deal with the much experienced Bing Xin-Yue.
It worked the same way if there was a fight between Ye Xiao and Xuan Bing, who was the prime grandmaster of the Misty Cloud Palace. Even if they had the same strength, Xuan Bing could play Ye Xiao as she wished. That was how experience could make a difference.
However, within a short time, Wen-Ren Chu-Chu realized the truth. She knew that it would be impossible for her to take down Ye Xiao. So she changed her strategy. She waved her hand and her spiritual power spread out and became a huge net. The net was getting close to Ye Xiao from all directions.
That was an area of effect. It narrowed the space where Ye Xiao could move to. From outside to inside, apparently, she was using her spiritual power, which was stronger than Ye Xiao's, to restrain Ye Xiao.
[I have a better cultivation capability. Now I am indeed taking advantage of you on this. So what?!]
Her little hands were full of power. They seemed slow, but in fact, they were extremely fast. The spiritual net that looked like a spider web formed an attacking area that covered everything around Ye Xiao.
Ye Xiao had a sharp spiritual sensation. He noticed that something was wrong in an instant. And he felt that he was becoming slower and slower. The space around him was locked by a powerful energy. The space where he could move to was getting narrower and narrower. Yet he didn't panic at all. His eyes were even sharper. He was defusing the impact of Wen-Ren Chu-Chu's attack bit by bit.
While he was fighting, he kept compressing the spiritual power in his dantian. He was trying to compress the energy into a minimal scale and then burst it at once. The compressed energy always made a huge impact. It should be able to break down a part of Wen-Ren Chu-Chu's spiritual net.
In fact, Ye Xiao had a better option. If he used the gelid qi and the scorching qi at the same time, and then let it explode, it would consume less energy but a much more powerful impact. And if he used the Demonic Weapons at the same time, he could completely destroy the spiritual net for sure, even if Wen-Ren Chu-Chu was stronger than he was in terms of cultivation capability.
Yet he didn't do it. He just chose to compress the energy and burst it out to create an area of effect. It could stop the net from restraining him completely.
Wen-Ren Chu-Chu was happy that he did so though. [The more you burst your compressed energy, the weaker you will be after that. A few more times later, you will use up all your energy and you won't be able to restore it. My cultivation capability is much higher than yours. I can definitely fix my spiritual net faster than you can destroy it. It will tidy you up sooner or later.
And when that moment comes, you will be exhausted and you will have no choice but to give up under the suppression of my spiritual net.
Humph! When that moment comes, I am going to teach you some lessons!]
She made up her mind. Although she knew that fixing the net would cost more energy than destroying it, she still kept doing so. She even intentionally slowed down her attack. She just wanted Ye Xiao to burst a few more times and wait for the moment when Ye Xiao was exhausted. That was what she would love to see.
Ye Xiao was calm. He kept compressing his energy, busting it again and again. And he kept moving inside the space where he was still able to, so that he could dodge the attacks from Wen-Ren Chu-Chu. Again and again, he was striking with a powerful explosion fiercely. As he had stricken more and more, his strikes were getting less and less frequent. Yet he didn't give up. Even though he was already gasping and sweating, he didn't give up. He just kept compressing every single piece of energy inside his body.
When Wen-Ren Chu-Chu saw him like that, she felt soft in her heart. So she slowed down even more, so that he could have some time to rest for a second. Ye Xiao didn't feel grateful at all. He cursed, ’’You mad woman! You are overweight, yet you don't want people to tell the truth. I wasn't lying. Should I be blamed because I told you the truth? Where is justice? Besides, your waist has always been thick. Now it has just grown a bit thicker. You are used to having such a big waist. Why does it matter that it got a little bit thicker? You haven't done a good job in keeping yourself fit. Why blame me? I should be the one who needs to wash my eyes after looking at you. And you actually got to me first!’’
After hearing Ye Xiao's outburst, the flame of anger in Wen-Ren Chu-Chu's heart once again burned like hell. Her face turned both red and cold. She was furious, so she attacked again with even more killing intent. It was so much fiercer now though.
Ye Xiao became busier in handling her attacks. Yet he didn't stop sneering, ’’Well, someone had their weakness pointed. Now you are angry because of shame, right? It is not your fault to have such an 'unsightly' appearance, but you showed up in front of others and it hurts people's eyes. Isn't it your fault? It is your fault and you actually started to beat me up... Ouch... Damn it. You actually beat me for real... No matter how you beat me, you still have a fat body and a big waist... Lady Wen-Ren, you have to bravely face the reality. It is cruel, but reality is real. That is the gods' will...’’
Wen-Ren Chu-Chu was more than furious this time. She was so furious that it seemed that her hair was all standing up because of anger. She didn't feel tired at all, yet she was gasping because she was so pissed. Her attacks became so much heavier now.
