Chapter 334: The Ten Great Practitioners (Four)
Ming Dong’s match was right after Jian Chen, so after the announcement, he and his opponent entered the Space Gate.
Almost as if arranged by the heavens, Ming Dong’s opponent had been one of the two people that had mocked them, Kazda Fei.
Before he had left, Ming Dong had a small grin on his face, “Jian Chen, I have to chop this guy in half.”
Slapping Ming Dong on his shoulders, Jian Chen gave him an encouraging look without saying anything.
Kazda Fei had a dark smile on his face as he spoke, “How coincidental, my opponent is you? It seems that God no longer wishes for you to remain alive and allowed me to take control. Kid, aren’t you supposed to be mad? You’ll be mad soon enough.”
Hearing those words, Ming Dong leaked some killing intent into his words as he spoke, “Spare me your big words, wait until we get into the arena. I'll make it so you can't even cry anymore.” With those words, Ming Dong immediately walked through the Space Gate and into the arena.
“Hmph, even with death near at hand, you are so arrogant still.” Kazda Fei spoke in disdain as he walked into the arena.
“Begin!” As soon as the two men entered, a loud voice called out to them again.
Instantly, a large amount of killing intent flowed from Kazda Fei as he stared at Ming Dong like a bloodthirsty magical beast. A Radiant Saint Force attributed sword appeared in his hand, forming a two meter long longsword. The longsword emitted a bright milky light that made it seem as if it were a divine sword.
“Go and die!” Kazda Fei roared as he flew toward Ming Dong with his sword swinging fiercely toward him.
With a small laugh, Ming Dong took out his cyan colored sword before disappearing from view. In a flash, he flew toward Kazda Fei and almost as if his sword had blended in with the wind, it streaked across Kazda Fei’s waist with a cyan glow, leaving behind a fierce looking wound.
Ming Dong’s speed was unbelievably fast to the point where even Kazda Fei wouldn’t be able to keep up. Feeling the wound on his waist, Kazda Fei could only see his hand drenched in his own blood.
With an ugly expression, Kazda Fei tried to figure out just when he had been injured. He had insulted and threatened that Ming Dong wouldn’t be leaving the arena alive, but he didn’t think that in the very first exchange, he would be the one damaged. This was a shame that could not stand.
“Brat, you’re dead!” Kazda Fei’s glare grew dark before a milky white glow emerged from his wounds at the same time as he was talking, causing his wounds to heal quickly.
Ming Dong sneered in disdain, “I’ve heard that you cultivators with a Radiant Saint Force are not killable and are called the undying. Today we’ll see just how undying you actually are.” With that, Ming Dong flew toward Kazda Fei and disappeared within the next instance.
“What a fast speed!”
“Heavens, for his speed to be that fast, could he be a wind attributed Heaven Saint Master?”
Outside of the arena, many people cried out in amazement as they saw the speed that Ming Dong had just revealed.
Even Kazda Fei grew deathly serious as he watched Ming Dong flash away. As soon as he grew close, Kazda Fei immediately shouted out loud as he brought his Radiant Saint Weapon toward Ming Dong’s chest. However, he had managed to only cut into an empty space where Ming Dong’s mirror image had been.
“Crap!” Kazda Fei exclaimed at this bad development. Without a second’s worth of a reaction, a sudden stinging pain could be felt from behind as a cyan colored sword stabbed through his chest.
Kazda Fei shouted out in anger as he dashed forward so that the sword would be taken out of his body. In the next moment, a large amount of Radiant Saint Force coursed through his body to treat the wound. While the wound on his chest wasn’t fatal, it was still a heavy injury that would impact his fighting ability.
“Brat, you’ve truly angered me. I’ll definitely smash your body into pieces!” Kazda Fei’s eyes grew bloodshot as he glared at Ming Dong with a furious expression.
“You truly do think yourself as invincible. If I wanted to kill you, then I would have stabbed your heart earlier and killed you.” Ming Dong laughed as if he was playing around with him.
With a furious snarl, Kazda Fei immediately burst with Radiant Saint Force before forming a silver white armor that covered his entire body sans his eyes.
Kara Ga and Zaar Ere looked at the armored Kazda Fei with a look of surprise before Zaar Ere mocked him, “What a nuisance, he reaps what he sows. Now that he took out his Radiant Saint Armor, he has truly lost all face.”
Kara Ga stood by Zaar Ere’s side with an ugly look on his face, but not a single word was spoken.
The other competitors had been stunned by Ming Dong’s speed. Although Ming Dong wasn’t all that old, his strength wasn’t weaker than anyone else here. His speed was especially fast and made everyone think that he was actually a Heaven Saint Master. That was because his speed had already far outstripped the realm an Earth Saint Master could attain, and even a Sixth Cycle wind attributed Earth Saint Master wouldn’t be able to reach such a speed.
Seeing the protective armoring on Kazda Fei, Ming Dong was a bit dazed. This was the very first time he had seen such a thing, but he laughed anyways, “Did you think wearing a tortoise shell would protect you?” With that, Ming Dong disappeared once more before reappearing behind Kazda Fei and slashed onto Kazda Fei’s chest.
“Bang!” A loud sound was heard as Kazda Fei flew back with a clear imprint on his chest armor.
Ming Dong shook his slightly numb right hand as he muttered, “What a thick tortoise shell.”
Kazda Fei glared venomously at Ming Dong as he raised his sword above his head, “Brat, you’ve been aggressive enough. I’ll send you on your way now, Absolute Truth--First Cross!” Radiant Saint Force surged out from Kazda Fei’s body as he brought his sword up. At the same time, a powerful amount of pressure suddenly came crashing down on the entire arena, causing Ming Dong to find it hard to breathe. Although the pressure had not affected the barrier, the entire arena was affecting even the outside area, causing everyone on the outside to feel the mountain-like pressure as well. The pressure was so much that none of them felt as if they could move and instantly went pale as their blood escaped from their faces.
“This is a Heaven Tier Battle Skill, he’s using a Heaven Tier Battle Skill!” A white haired elder cried out in shock, causing everyone else to pale at the overwhelming power. At the same time, everyone stared in excitement at Kazda Fei. Regarding Heaven Tier Battle Skills, they were a once in a millennia opportunity to become rich. Not a single person wanted to miss this, even the Heaven Saint Masters were all staring intensely at Kazda Fei. This was because Heaven Tier Battle Skills were extremely expensive and some Heaven Saint Masters didn’t even have a single Heaven Tier Battle Skill.
Seeing Kazda Fei’s battle skill, Ming Dong had a serious look at last, “Don’t think that you’re the only one with a heaven Tier Battle Skill, I’ll show you the power of an Advanced Heaven Tier Battle Skill.” With that, an equally large amount of energy began to ripple out of Ming Dong before collecting together in his sword.
In the next moment, a stronger wave of pressure blew back and returned the pressure given to him by Kazda Fei’s battle skill. Its power had reached even the outside area where countless of Great Saint Masters coughed out a mouthful of blood as their faces grew even more pale.
Suddenly, the entire crowd began to push backward as the ones incapable of enduring the pressure tried to escape. All sorts of panicked cries could be heard.
“Heavens, this is a Heaven Tier Battle Skill….”
“Two Heaven Tier Battle Skills are about to clash, who’s going to be the winner and who will be the loser?”
“With two Heaven Tier Battle Skills about to clash, this will cause even the heavens to shake. Who knows whether or not the arena will be able to handle it, everyone get back!”
“For two Heaven Tier Battle Skills to go head to head, what result will happen, we’ll find out soon enough…”
The power from the Heaven Tier Battle Skills of Ming Dong and Kazda Fei had caused a panic as everyone from Great Saint Masters to Earth Saint Masters all flew into an outrage. Not a single of them had seen such a clash like this before.
While the Heaven Tier Battle Skills continued to build up power, Ming Dong and Kazda Fei both continued to hold back, at their level, they needed to build up power for the full power.
The wind began to grow turbulent as a strong gale was whipped up around the two competitors while they initialized their Heaven Tier Battle Skills. The pressure was enough for Great Saint Masters to be forced back, and even some Earth Saint Masters were forced a few steps back.
By this point, only a few of the Heaven Saint Master experts were within twenty meters of the arena without any pain. However, each one of them had a layer of Saint Force protecting them.
While it took some time to explain, it had only taken a few moments. In the end, both battle skills were fully prepared.
“Absolute Truth--First Cross!”
“Sword of the Tyrant--Heaven Shaking Blade!”
