Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
After dealing with the tree demon, Azuras gaze landed on Ye Xiao.
“Youre really interesting.
In all these years, other than the four sovereigns of the nine provinces, I havent seen a human who can reach your level.
“Looks like theres going to be some fun today.
“I hope you can be a little stronger and dont let me down too much.”
Ye Xiao did not reply.
To Azura, that battle might be a very fun game.
However, to Ye Xiao, that was not even considered a game.
Within the same level, there were really not many who could arouse his interest.
Not wanting to waste too much time, Ye Xiao immediately made his move.
The Heaven-cleaving Sword was swung out.
The sword ray was like an Azure Dragon that shot straight into the clouds and met with Azura.
Azura also swung out his sword.
The two sword rays were mixed with thunder and lightning respectively.
They withstood the spiritual energy and collided with each other in an instant.
After a violent explosion, another mushroom cloud appeared in the sky.
However, that explosion was only the beginning.
It was like a starting gun.
The moment the explosion sounded, the two of them disappeared on the spot at the same time.
Everyone could not help but exclaim.
The speed of Ye Xiao was really too fast.
It was so fast that even martial arts experts at the divine grandmaster rank like them could not keep up with their speed.
They could not see their figures clearly at all.
They could only barely see the sky as countless dark shadows flashed past.
That was because the two of them were too fast, leaving behind flowing light and dark shadows.
Even Beitang Ce, who was at Xiantian ninth grade and possessed an eye technique, was dumbstruck.
His fire spirit eye was definitely able to surpass ordinary Xiantian ninth grade in terms of detection.
Even so, in his eyes, it was only slightly better than the others.
He could only see afterimages一he was barely able to catch up with the twos speed and determine their positions.
Other than that, he could no longer see their faces clearly.
Boom, Boom, Boom, Boom, Boom…
In the next second, a series of lights suddenly exploded in the sky.
Each light represented a fight between the two, and everyones hearts couldnt help but tremble.
Because they carefully counted, this light seemed to have reached tens of thousands of times!
How fast was it
How many seconds did it take
The two of them had reached such a level
If they were given a minute, that meant that they would be heaven-defying.
Even ten Zhong province cities would not be enough for them!
Ten seconds later, there was not a single cloud in the sky.
It was clean and there was nothing.
The golden light from the explosion produced by the battle between the two continued to light up.
That light even blocked out the sunlight in the sky.
Finally, in the most powerful explosion, the two figures separated from each other and stood proudly in their respective spots.
Then, at that moment, everyone could finally see the difference between the two of them.
In that instant, Azura began to pant slightly.
It was very obvious that the battle just now was about to reach the zero boundary point for him.
As for Ye Xiao, his expression did not change and his heart did not beat.
There was no reaction at all.
Was Ye Xiao was actually stronger than Azura
Heavens, Azura was already almost a divine beast, equivalent to a human lesser King realm martial arts expert.
Ye Xiao was actually stronger than him!
That meant that… Ye Xiao was already infinitely close to that realm
At that moment, everyone felt that their blood could not help but begin to boil.
The human race was actually going to have another martial arts expert of that level.
The heavens favor!
The heavens favor!
Beitang Ces eyes were even moister.
An old man like him placed more importance on the human race and the future of the nine provinces than anyone else.
Now, a genius with such monstrous talent had appeared in the human race, and it was even a fellow countryman from the nine provinces.
He was truly happy from the bottom of his heart.
“Its been a few hundred years! A dragon has appeared in the nine provinces again!”
Azura looked at Ye Xiao in an instant.
His eyes were throbbing with a crazy light.
Although he was a star beast, at the same time, he was also a martial arts fanatic!
The stronger Ye Xiao was, the more excited he was.
He had already recovered his breathing and his panting had evened out.
He looked at Ye Xiao with some excitement on his face.
“You shouldnt have used your full strength yet, right Interesting, really very interesting!
“Not only have you cultivated sword techniques, but youve also cultivated many other martial arts! Including mental cultivation techniques, what youve cultivated is not only one imperial technique but definitely more than that.”
In the end, he was indeed worthy of being a martial arts expert at the level of Azura.
After exchanging blows, he very quickly figured out Ye Xiaos path.
However, that also made him understand that there was still a chance of victory between him and Ye Xiao.
Ye Xiao was only stronger than him in terms of endurance.
The mental cultivation technique that he cultivated was also an imperial technique.
As long as he did not engage in a prolonged battle with Ye Xiao and decided the victor in one move, that battle would be over.
“Theres no need to waste time.
Next, lets decide the victor in one move!”
Ye Xiao naturally knew what he was thinking, but he still nodded his head.
If one did not dare to kill the king, how could one be the king
Since one wanted to become a prodigy, ones mental state had to be strong enough!
If one did not even dare to accept the other partys challenge, that would be too laughable.
On the path of martial arts, the most important thing was ones mental state.
If ones mental state cowered, on the path of martial arts, there was a possibility that one would come to a standstill!
Moreover, who could guarantee that he would lose
He would definitely be the last person standing.
“Good! 10,000 swords returning to the origin!”
Azura instantly bit his finger, and in the next second, his true form appeared in the air.
It was a Sword Dragon that was as tall and mighty as a mountain!
After he transformed into his true form, his aura had been further enhanced, reaching an even stronger level.
After transforming into his true form, his body began to emit countless rays of golden light.
That was his ultimate skill, Myriad of Swords to the Origin!
He squeezed out t10,000 rays of light, which was equivalent to all of his strength, and then combined them into one.
That move was 100 percent capable of killing enemies of a higher cultivation level.
In other words, with his current lesser divine beast cultivation, that move was not any weaker than a divine beasts cultivation level.
Once the Myriad of Swords to the Origin was unleashed, the heaven and earth changed unpredictably.
On the ground, countless swords and weapons began to tremble at that moment.
That extremely terrifying scene caused countless martial artists to start trembling.
One second, two seconds, three seconds.
Finally, the Myriad of Swords to the Origin was completed.
Along with Azuras earth-shaking roar, in the next second, countless sword lights began to shoot toward Ye Xiao.
Ye Xiao also made his move at that moment.
He was using the Imperial Sword Art!
Out of all his cultivation techniques, only the Imperial Sword Art was the most suitable to deal with the Myriad of Swords to the Origin.
That was because the Myriad of Swords to the Origin was a sustained type of sword technique, while the Imperial Sword Art was a continuous amplification type.
The Myriad of Swords to the Origin was the condensation of 10,000 attacks into a single point.
As for the Imperial Sword Art, the power of each sword would be stronger than the previous one.
However, the Myriad of Swords to the Origin had 10,000 attacks while the Imperial Sword Art only had 108 attacks.
From that point of view, the imperial Sword Art would definitely be at a disadvantage against the Myriad of Swords to the Origin.
However, Ye Xiao was not a fool.
Other than the imperial techniques that the Golden Book divine soul gave him, he would also develop some special moves.
As an example… Fusing the Imperial Sword Art with the Heaven-cleaving Sword.
Every attack of the Imperial Sword Art was a Heaven-cleaving Sword!
With that, the upper limit of the Imperial Sword Art was greatly increased.
When the two fused, the power was boundless.
The sword moves of the two directly collided at the instant they made their moves.
However, they did not explode.
Instead, they formed two colliding sword glows.
They were dead set against each other and did not give in to each other.
Then, the sword moves at the back charged in frenziedly again, amplifying the previous sword glows.
The speed at which the Imperial Sword Art was executed was clearly slower than the Myriad of Swords to the Origin.
After clashing for a second, the opposing formation of the two had already begun to move, moving toward Ye Xiaos side.
That meant that Ye Xiaos sword moves could not resist the Myriad of Swords to the Origin.
Everyones hearts were in their throats.
If Ye Xiao was defeated, then everyone present, including the citizens of Zhong city, would all be annihilated today.
Whether Ye Xiao won or not would directly affect the lives of all of them.
In the huge eyes of Azuras Sword Dragon, a wild joy was revealed.
The battle had only just begun, and Ye Xiao already could not hold on any longer.
The Myriad of Swords to the Origin still had a lot of strength, and he had yet to unleash the later moves.
That battle was for sure won by him.
That sword ray had already closed in on Ye Xiao.
1,000 feet, 800 feet, 500 feet, 300 feet…
In another seven seconds at most, Ye Xiao would die without a doubt!
Even though the Myriad of Swords to the Origin had already closed in on Ye Xiao, Ye Xiaos expression did not show the slightest hint of panic.
He continued to attack indifferently.
The 10th sword, the 11th sword, the 12th sword… Every time he attacked, the power would be a little stronger than before.
When the sword ray arrived at the 49th sword, the situation finally began to reverse.
The sword ray that had already arrived in front of Ye Xiao and was less than 30 feet away suddenly stopped!
The 50th sword!
The sword ray formed at the front of the Myriad of Swords to the Origin was actually forced back a step by Ye Xiao at this moment.
Everyone could not help but clench their fists in excitement and shout out.
Azura was momentarily stunned, but very quickly, his expression turned cold as he used an even more powerful strength to activate the Myriad of Swords to the Origin.
The speed of the Myriad of Swords to the Origin was increased, and its power was even greater than before.
However, even so, even if Ye Xiao still swung out each sword steadily, the sword ray was still continuously retreating towards him.
Azura finally began to panic.
Although he was a martial arts fanatic, it did not mean that he was not afraid of death.
He had dared to fight with Ye Xiao just now purely because he felt that he would not lose.
At that point, he finally felt the terror of Ye Xiao.
He would lose!
He would be killed!
He began to use all his strength to urge the Myriad of Swords to the Origin, striking out all the remaining sword rays in an instant, fusing them into the sword rays at the very front.
That sudden imbalance of spiritual energy directly detonated the sword rays at the very front!
