Sha Tongtian had been painstakingly training in sword technique. He had just reached the intermediate stage of the Crystallization Period 2 years ago. It could be said that his progression in cultivation was the fastest among the new inner disciples of the Tianjian Peak. At that time, he also caused a lot of heated discussions.
Not long ago, he mobilized a lot of resources from his family and put in tons of effort to forge a true spirit flying sword. It gave a great boost to his strength.
Now Sha Tongtian was a little surprised that he couldn’t sense Liu Ming’s aura, but he was more confident in his own strength, so he challenged Liu Ming without thinking much.
“Alright, since Senior Fellow Apprentice Sha has this interest, I will accompany you.” Liu Ming thought slightly before agreeing to it.
Several other Tianjian Peak disciples whispered to each other for a while, looking at Liu Ming with different expressions.
After all, Liu Ming’s reputation was not small among the recent disciples. Now he agreed to fight with Sha Tongtian, this of course made them very excited.
“Very well, we don’t need to go too far; just go to the nearby Yuanming Peak’s arena will do.” Seeing Liu Ming agreed, Sha Tongtian said with a smile while stroking the sword pouch on his waist.
Liu Ming naturally had no objections.
As a result, Sha Tongtian’s figure blurred, then he blasted toward a certain direction in a pure white sword light.
Seeing this, the few people beside hurriedly followed up.
Liu Ming smiled faintly. A black light rolled up from beneath him, slowly following the crowd.
In a short while, they came to the arena under a huge mountain peak nearby.
At this time, it was early in the morning. There were a lot of inner disciples who came to have practice matches. The arrival of Sha Tongtian and others caused a commotion.
Obviously, Sha Tongtian had quite some reputation in this peak.
As for Liu Ming, his appearance was ordinary. Except for the major competition, he hadn’t appeared in the sect in recent years, so no one recognized him.
Liu Ming naturally didn’t care about this. He just quietly followed Sha Tongtian and the others to the largest arena in the middle and waited quietly.
Seeing this, the disciples who were scattered around naturally understood what was going on. They gathered one after another. After a while, they surrounded the arena, and kept whispering one after another. Obviously, they were all speculating that the famous sword cultivator was going to fight with someone here.
Not long after, a white long rainbow whizzed from the distant horizon.
Before everyone recovered their senses, the white rainbow had landed in front of Sha Tongtian and the others. After the white light faded, a middle-aged man in a white robe was revealed.
The entire arena became silent at once.
“Elder Long!” Sha Tongtian and others immediately bowed to the middle-aged man in a very respectful manner.
Liu Ming also bowed.
The man in a white robe was a cultivator of the Real Pellet State. It should be the elder of the Yuanming Peak who was invited by Sha Tongtian as the referee.
Someone from Sha Tongtian’s party stepped forward and explained the situation to the man in a white robe in a low voice. Hearing the words, the man in a white robe casually glanced on Sha Tongtian and Liu Ming, nodded and said,
“Since 2 nephew disciples are going to have a match, I will personally host it. However, remember to not deliberately hurt the opponent and stop when the results are clear. “The man in a white robe solemnly warned.
Both Liu Ming agreed and jumped at the same time. The next moment, they appeared on the arena, facing each other.
Seeing this, the man in a white robe waved his sleeves, and a layer of white semicircular enchantment suddenly formed around the arena.
The audience onlookers saw the situation on the field, and there was a commotion, and they all watched attentively.
When the man in a white robe glanced over Liu Ming on the field again, a strange expression flashed in his eyes, but his calmness was restored right after.
He had naturally discovered that if Liu Ming’s aura was vague; he actually couldn’t check his cultivation, but he wouldn’t think that Liu Ming was at the Real Pellet State too. Instead, his aura was just concealed by a spiritual weapon. He didn’t care much about this.
“Since I knew that Brother Liu had broken through the Crystallization Period, I have been eager to have another hearty battle with you. Unfortunately, I was busy with something in my family at that time, then Brother Liu quietly left the sect again. So, this battle has been dragged to the present. ” On the arena, Sha Tongtian said coldly.
“Oh, is it possible that Brother Sha was still upset about Junior Sister Apprentice Jin back then?” Liu Ming raised his eyebrows and asked rhetorically.
“I have long forgotten about Junior Sister Apprentice Jin. Now I just want to fight with you to see who’s better.” Sha Tongtian said faintly. As he finished, an astounding sword intent rose up from him.
Seeing this, the onlookers whispered for a while.
“Brother Sha is so confident that you can win against me, is it because of a true spirit flying sword?” Liu Ming showed a spurious smile.
As he said, he glanced at the white sword pouch on Sha Tongtian’s waist unintentionally.
“Brother Liu can even sense my true spirit flying sword in the sword pouch. It seems that you make some improvement in sword skills, then it is even more worth fighting.” Sha Tongtian’s face was slightly startled, but he calmed down and said.
Then he slapped the sword pouch on his waist, and a pure white sword light soared into the sky. A giant white lotus bloomed in the air, exuding bursts of chilling air.
“Brother Liu, you first.” After Sha Tongtian released the true spirit flying sword, his confidence was boosted. He laughed coldly.
In the audience, many disciples who watched the game were cheering.
“Senior Fellow Apprentice Sha’s cultivation seems to have taken a step further, I think he is almost at the peak of the Crystallization Period intermediate stage.”
“Senior Fellow Apprentice Sha is a genius, we really can’t compare with him!”
“Compared with when he fought Emerald Cloud Peak’s Senior Fellow Apprentice Luo half a year ago, there seemed to be more spirit patterns on the Ice Glass Flying Sword. Its power seems to have increased by a lot. Senior Fellow Apprentice Sha will definitely be able to get his revenge!”
In addition to the arena, the middle-aged man in a white robe showed some praise seeing the snowy lotus blooming around Sha Tongtian.
Liu Ming smiled and shook his head. The lotus flower cast by the sword qi was the sword qi transformation in the sword technique. Sha Tongtian had already been able to transform into a dragon with a flying sword a long time ago. His talent was indeed good.
However, when he released the sword qi like this, showing the most subtle part of the sword art unreservedly to the opponent, how could he still unleash the surprise factor of the true spirit flying sword?
Liu Ming hadn’t realized that his vision and insights had already surpassed the level of the Crystallization Period, and his understanding of cultivation had gradually changed from the simple exterior to the essence. How could an ordinary Crystallization Period cultivator like Sha Tongtian be comparable to him?
After a slight sigh in his heart, he pointed at his forehead with a sword gesture. An astounding golden sword shadow flashed out.
The next moment, a rumbling sound came!
A golden light flashed wildly, and it blasted forward at lightning speed. An endless golden sword qi instantly swept the entire arena.
The simplest sword controlling attack was to pierce straight out without any fancy moves. He injected a huge spiritual power into the Void Sword, relying on brute force to deal with everything.
The dazzling sword light seemed to be a brutal beast, rushing directly toward Sha Tongtian.
Sha Tongtian was taken aback. He didn’t expect Liu Ming to have a true spirit flying sword too, and he could even launch such a violent attack.
He also couldn’t care about letting Liu Ming make a move first. He roared and changed his gestures swiftly. The white lotus in the air dissipated. A sword turned into a white cold light to face the golden sword light.
2 sword lights, 1 golden and 1 white, crashed into each other suddenly.
For a time, the space above the arena had a few continuous explosions. The golden and white auras intertwined and flickered, becoming dazzling!
However, after 2 seconds, the white sword qi collapsed gradually. The dazzling golden light burst out of the shattered white sword qi. After a flash, it appeared in front of Sha Tongtian, then it stopped abruptly, turning back into the 2 inches long golden flying sword again.
The cold light on the tip of Void Sword flashed slightly. It was less than 3 inches from Sha Tongtian’s forehead.
Sha Tongtian felt a chill on his forehead. A stream of blood flowed down silently. Although the Void Sword had not really touched his skin, the invisible sword qi it cast left an inch-size wound on his forehead.
Sha Tongtian’s face was instantly pale and bloodless, and his eyes were full of unbelievable expressions. He raised his arms tremblingly and pointed at Liu Ming not far away. Suddenly, he felt a chest depression before spouting a patch of blood.
The snow-white flying sword also fell from mid-air and pierced into the ground. After a few jumping a few times like a fish, it calmed down completely.
, Liu Ming just smiled faintly and waved 1 hand. The Void Sword returned to his sleeve in a golden light.
Under the arena, there was already no sound; all the disciples surrounding the audience were dumbfounded.
Especially the disciples of Tianjian Peak, they widened their mouths in shock.
A moment ago, Sha Tongtian still looked confident, but the moment the fight started, he was defeated utterly.
“Liu Ming wins!”
The middle-aged in the white robe, who was the referee, couldn’t hide the surprise in his eyes. After announcing the result, he launched a white symbol on the arena; the surrounding enchantment slowly dissipated.
The 2 Tianjian Peak disciples immediately flew onto the arena, took out elixirs and gave them to Sha Tongtian.
Although Sha Tongtian was not directly attacked by Liu Ming’s sword, the true spirit flying sword connected to his mind was forcibly broken by the Void Sword in the previous blow. It not only caused some injuries to his body, but the flying sword’s spirituality also suffered a little damage.
Of course, he didn’t know that Liu Ming deliberately held back his power.
Otherwise, with Liu Ming’s current spiritual power, using the Void Sword at its full power would slash the true spirit flying sword in half.
TL: So, if he and Jin Tianci have a rematch, who will win? Btw, why is his master calling him back hurriedly?
