Realms In The Firmament - Chapter 246
Chapter 246 - The Unnatural And Incredible Martial Art
Wen-Ren Chu-Chu was surprised. [He had just broken through a higher level. How come he has such a huge power?
Is the martial art he is cultivating much more powerful than the Ling Xiao Ice Art?]
She only had such a thought for a second before she started to think that it was a stupid conjecture. [Ling Xiao Ice Art is the best martial art in the whole Qing-Yun Realm. It beats all the other martial arts in the Qing-Yun Realm. How could he, a man from such a low-class realm, have a martial art that is better than Ling Xiao Ice Art?!]
On the other side, Ye Xiao shouted loudly under the suppression of the Ling Xiao Ice Art. He actually didn't step back. Instead, he fiercely moved forward, producing a much bigger pressure on Wen-Ren Chu-Chu.
[That is truly abnormal!] She thought.
Yet she didn't know that it wasn't Ye Xiao's best strike yet. It was only for distraction.
Once he started with this movement, he needed to make some certain gestures to move his body in order to adjust his position. He wanted to regulate his Jing and Mai and then compress the energy in his dantian so that his body would follow the movement of the spiritual qi in the world.
At the end, he would burst it all out, which was the final step of this attack.
What he was doing now was to accumulate the energy of the strike. All that he did was to dodge from the opponent's attack. In one hand, he would not be disrupted, in the other hand, he would not get hurt.
This strike had a name 'Trapped Dragon Launched To The Ocean'. The 99 rolls in the air made him look like a dragon making waves in the ocean and suddenly rushing out from the water. It rampantly kept spinning on the sea as it made huge waves.
When it rushed forward spinning, the sea seemed to be its weapon surging forward to the enemy with it.
When it was done making waves, the waves were already reaching the sky.
And then it would just rush forward!
Wen-Ren Chu-Chu was looking at this with astonishment in her eyes. One after another, blue streams formed into a blue long dragon that was approaching her.
The dragon was actually as powerful as the ones she created earlier by using the Ling Xiao Ice Art. Its eyes were vigorous, and it looked like a king descending the world with the aura that was looking down upon all of the world.
It was like a sovereign of the whole world staring at its people solemnly.
Its power seemed to contain the energy from the ancient time. It was invincible. Wen-Ren Chu-Chu felt that she got hit badly, and no matter what she did, nothing helped her even a bit. Her power seemed to have disappeared. She flew away like a leaf blown by the winds before she had the time to stabilize her body.
After rolling in the air for several times, she actually stepped back several steps on the ground before she could finally stood still.
Her eyes were full of fear.
Even Bing Xin-Yue couldn't help but keep her eyes opened widely.
Wen-Ren Chu-Chu lost.
For Bing Xin-Yue, it wasn't so surprising that Wen-Ren Chu-Chu would lose. She already knew that it would happen. Wen-Ren Chu-Chu was below Feng Zhi-Ling on attitude, vigor, experience and all other aspects. At the moment, Feng Zhi-Ling had just reached a new level, and his cultivation capability had just increased a lot. It was quite reasonable that he could defeat Wen-Ren Chu-Chu.
Maybe he just took an advantage of Wen-Ren Chu-Chu's tiny mistake, or her disrupted mind, or even used his own powerful vigor to suppress her and took her down in surprise. It was nothing unexpected. It was all reasonable!
However, the final strike that decided the result of the fight. Although it still depended on their attitude, mind states, experiences, and in some ways, on their own real strength, Wen-Ren Chu-Chu was still well above Ye Xiao in cultivation. Yet in such a fair fight, she actually lost it to a man who had just reached the Grade of Tianyuan and was far weaker than her. And it was an ugly failure.
That was unexplainable!
The result was unbelievable.
Ye Xiao got to the ground slowly. He stood in front of the two ladies. He was polite and casual. He smiled and said, ’’Thanks for the help.’’
Bing Xin-Yue had already known what he had been planning. Even Wen-Ren Chu-Chu understood it later at the end. So it was understandable to them why Ye Xiao would say so.
Bing Xin-Yue smiled, ’’You're welcome.’’
Wen-Ren Chu-Chu stepped forward and asked with surprise, ’’How did you do that? That suicidal way to break through?’’
Bing Xin-Yue was happy to know the answer too.
’’I am a dan-maker. Things that mean death to ordinary people don't really seem so to me.’’ Ye Xiao smiled and said, ’’There is a special martial art in my sect. It is called Robe Transposition...’’ He smiled with a complex expression and said, ’’As long as the opponent is weaker than me, I can use such art to absorb their spiritual power and pour it all into my dantian. Even if I couldn't break through, the mass of energy would stay in my dantian temporarily until all of it is vented out. It is not a perfect way though. If I couldn't break through, the temporarily staying power would still hurt my physical body. I wouldn't get killed, but I would still be injured. For people in my sect, there is always a treatment to recover ourselves from that injury. When such a mass of energy works well, it always helps me improve to a new level. It is a tricky way to improve myself, but it saves my time after all.’’
Bing Xin-Yue was enlightened. She said, ’’I see. There truly are endless weird things in the boundless world. I didn't expect that there would be such kind of martial art in this Land of Han-Yang.’’
She came to an understanding all of a sudden. What Ye Xiao said was reasonable enough to explain everything.
However, she was still shocked, ’’It is not a perfect way, but it truly is an unnatural and incredible martial art already.’’
Wen-Ren Chu-Chu nodded in agreement.
It was fanciful. 'Unnatural' could be a proper word to describe it. Whoever had such a martial art, whenever he or she was about to get to a new grade, he or she could just go get a big fight.
It was better than most of the martial arts that required the cultivators to keep staying in their own places while cultivating secretly.
Some people had been staying in one place to cultivate for their whole lives and still couldn't get a breakthrough. What Feng Zhi-Ling did was totally different and better.
It was quite a fierce and straight way to forcibly break through a new grade.
After a fight, if you broke through, then you broke through;if you didn't, then you didn't. It was easy and clear!
As for the injury, it was a problem after the breakthrough though.
First chapter in a while. Rain had some IRL matters and couldn't translate. RITF should be back with regular releases soon. As for the missed chapters, we'll also do our best to catch up.
