Chapter 702: Bai He Challenging Zi Shang
Translator: KurazyTolanzuraytor Editor: Jay
“Looks like Zhang Clan’s Zhang Shou Yong has already touched onto the Intermediate Earth Concept… With the ability he utilized earlier, it won’t be long before he’ll be able to officially comprehend Intermediate Earth Concept and even break through to the Void Interpretation Stage!” There was no lack of Void Interpretation Stage experts in the surrounding first-class spectating areas of the Cage Battle Arena, and they saw through the ability Zhang Shou Yong utilized earlier.
“Exactly! While similarly at the ninth level Elementary Concept, yet once one touches on Intermediate Concept, one’s strength would obtain a great increase! At least, before others that possessed a similar cultivation, one would be in an undefeatable position.”
“When facing an opponent like this, unless one’s movement technique far surpasses the opponent to the point of being able to dodge the material Concept executed in combination with Origin Energy… Otherwise, it would be extremely difficult to defeat the opponent.”
Many spectating Void Interpretation Stage experts spoke out with their views.
Even though their voices weren’t loud, yet it clearly spread throughout the deathly silent Cage Battle Arena, and it caused everyone to hear it clearly.
“So that’s how it this, Zhang Shou Yong has actually touched the threshold of Intermediate Earth Concept.” After he consumed a healing medicinal pill and recovered slightly, Ye Xiao soared up into the sky and looked at Zhang Shou Yong with a complicated expression.
He originally thought that he could defeat Zhang Shou Yong today and wash away his shame.
But unexpectedly, the outcome was similar to the last two times.
He still lost to Zhang Shou Yong.
“Intermediate Earth Concept!” Bai He looked at Zhang Shou Yong with a slightly dark expression, as when he heard the discussions of the Void Interpretation Stage experts, he understood that he wasn’t a match for Zhang Shou Yong.
At least he wasn’t a match for Zhang Shou Yong now.
If he exerted his full strength, his strength was even inferior to Ye Xiao, and it was utterly impossible for his movement technique to be faster than Zhang Shou Yong.
He suddenly noticed that he’d actually unknowingly become the one at the bottom amongst the three publicly acknowledged most outstanding young experts of the Darkhan Dynasty.
This caused him to be slightly unable to accept this.
In next to no time, Bai He’s gaze moved onto Duan Ling Tian, and after it flashed past Duan Ling Tian, it descended onto Zi Shang. “Fortunately, there are these two fellows to be at the bottom… In this way, even if I’m inferior to Bai He, Zhang Shou Yong, and Ye Xiao, it wouldn’t be too shameful.”
At this moment, Bai He completely didn’t realize that he didn’t quite understand the true strength of Duan Ling Tian and Zi Shang.
Even though the two of them had fought earlier, they’d instantly killed their enemies and even the phenomenon of heaven and earth hadn’t condensed into form before everything was already over.
Amidst the waves of praise from the surroundings of the Cage Battle Arena, Zhang Shou Yong’s expression remained unchanged as he moved to the side, and his gaze flashed past Duan Ling Tian, Zi Shang, Bai Hao, and Bai He.
He was extremely curious about who would be the next to enter the arena.
“Who will be the next to issue a challenge?” Meanwhile, one of the old men looked at Duan Ling Tian’s group of four.
“I’ll do it!” A light shout sounded out as a black clothed young man had already arrived at the central area of the sky above the Cage Battle Arena.
Presently, the person in the arena was none other than the Darkhan Dynasty’s Imperial Family’s Second Prince, Bai He.
“The Second Prince has entered the arena!”
“I never imagined that the three publicly acknowledged strongest young experts of our Darkhan Dynasty would enter the arena so quickly… I wonder who the Second Prince will choose as his opponent.”
“No matter who it is, the Second Prince’s chances of victory are much greater! His strength isn’t inferior to Zhang Shou Yong and Ye Xiao.”
The surrounding crowd of spectators discussed animatedly.
Many people praised Bai He up to the skies, and it caused Bai He himself to feel his face go slightly hot.
Perhaps his strength wasn’t inferior to Zhang Shou Yong and Ye Xiao in the past.
But now, he knew he wasn’t a match for Zhang Shou Yong and Ye Xiao.
Of course, if he was challenged by Zhang Shou Yong and Ye Xiao, he would still fight and absolutely not admit defeat directly.
As the Second Prince of the Darkhan Dynasty’s Imperial Family, he had his own arrogance and pride, so even if he wasn’t a match, he would fight to the end and reveal his strength and natural talent that far exceeded ordinary young geniuses.
Along with Bai He’s gaze flashing past Bai Hao, Duan Ling Tian, and Zi Shang, the Cage Battle Arena went deathly silent as everyone had held their breaths.
In the end, Bai He’s gaze locked onto a person.
A young man that wore white clothes.
“Zi Shang!” The person Bai He challenged was exactly Zi Shang, the former Zither Young Master of the Azure Forest Imperial Kingdom’s five great young masters.
This caused many people to be surprised.
After all, amongst the people that Bai He could choose to challenge, two of the three people were members of the Darkhan Dynasty’s Imperial Family, and they were on Bai He’s side.
Originally, most people thought that he would choose to challenge Duan Ling Tian.
But the outcome exceeded their expectations.
“I’ve never heard of Zi Shang in the past… But his strength is extremely strong, as he killed the Darkmoon Sect’s Head Disciple, Feng Yu, with a flick of his finger.”
The gazes of many spectators descended onto Zi Shang.
The Darkmoon Sect’s Head Disciple Feng Yu had a cultivation at the eighth level of the Void Initiation Stage and had comprehended ninth level Sword Concept. He could be considered to be a top eighth level Void Initiation Stage young genius in the Dynasty Martial Competition today.
But an existence like this was annihilated with a single flick of Zi Shang’s fingers.
Only an instant passed from when Zi Shang attacked to the point Feng Yu died, and even the phenomenon of heaven and earth hadn’t had the time to condense in to form, clearly showing the how swiftly Zi Shang attacked and how strong his strength was.
When faced with Bai He’s challenge, Zi Shang flew out with a calm expression.
“Big Brother.” On the first-class spectating area that belonged solely to the Darkhan Dynasty’s Imperial Family, Zi Yan clenched her fists tightly, and her peerlessly beautiful face was mixed with slight worry.
Even though she knew her older brother was a ninth level Void Initiation Stage expert now, the Second Prince Bai He had stepped into the ninth level of the Void Initiation Stage since long ago.
“Don’t worry, even if Zi Shang is inferior to Bai He, he wouldn’t face any danger to his life.” The black clothed old man noticed Zi Yan’s anxiousness and couldn’t help but smile as he consoled.
“Exactly.” The Darkhan Dynasty’s Emperor nodded.
Obviously, no matter if it was the black clothed old man or the Emperor, neither thought that Zi Shang would be able to defeat Bai He.
After all, Bai He had always been an outstanding talent amongst the younger generation of the Darkhan Dynasty, whereas Zi Shang had only just risen swiftly.
As far as they were concerned, Bai He’s foundation was much more solid than Zi Shang, and if nothing unexpected happened, then Zi Shang would surely lose.
“Zi Shang!” In the spectating area of the Darkstone Empire, Long Yun’s gaze descended onto Zi Shang, and it flickered with a bright light.
As a figure that was once one of the five great young masters like Zi Shang, Long Yun’s attention towards Zi Shang wasn’t inferior to Duan Ling Tian’s attention to Zi Shang.
He felt his own fortuitous encounters were already shocking, yet Zi Shang’s fortuitous encounters seemed to be even more shocking.
Exactly how strong is Zi Shang’s true strength now…?
He was extremely curious about this.
In the sky above the Cage Battle Arena, Duan Ling Tian and the others stood far away as their gazes descended onto the two young men that stood in the central area of the sky above the Cage Battle Arena.
A black clothed young man and white clothed young man stood facing each other in the sky.
“Zi Shang, truthfully speaking, I was really surprised when I saw you possessed a cultivation at the ninth level of the Void Initiation Stage today… But I want to tell you that even if your cultivation is equal to mine, you’re bound to be the stepping stone of I, Bai He, for your entire lifetime!” Bai He looked at Zi Shang as he provoked via voice transmission, and he obviously wanted to infuriate Zi Shang.
But unfortunately, Zi Shang had a calm expression when facing Bai He’s provocation, and he replied indifferently via voice transmission. “Second Prince, who will be whose stepping stone is still unknown now… But you’ll know soon enough.”
“Zi Shang, you’re courting death!” When Bai He who wanted to provoke and infuriate Zi Shang head then, he instantly burst into rage and then his figure flashed out to charge straight towards Zi Shang.
In the sky above him, 12 ancient horned dragon silhouettes instantly condensed into form, and accompanying this was a three foot long blade that had flowing lights revolving upon it appeared in Bai He’s hand, causing another 7 ancient horned dragon silhouettes to appear in the sky above him.
Grade four spirit sword!
In the end, along with a strand of peerlessly sharp aura flickering on the three foot long blade, another nine ancient horned dragon silhouettes condensed into form and coiled down from the sky above him.
It wasn’t just that, there was another aura mixed within the Origin Energy on Bai He’s sword, and it was the aura of an Advanced Force.
2,000 ancient mammoth silhouettes condensed into form along with the appearance of this Force.
The strength of 28 ancient horned dragons and 2,000 ancient mammoths, this was Bai He’s full strength.
Bai He’s speed was extremely swift, and he seemed like an arrow that left the bow to arrive before Zi Shang in a short moment.
“Die!” Suddenly, Bai He’s gaze went slightly cold as the grade four spirit sword in his hand curved in an arc and flashed out swiftly.
The instant that Bai He struck out.
Swish! Swish! Swish! Swish! Swish!
A wave of sword howls resounded out, and they rose and fell continuously.
It was the grade four spirit sword in Bai He’s hand that had condensed ten sword lights condensed into form from Origin Energy that appeared out of in air from all directions before piercing towards Zi Shang.
Everywhere the sword lights passed, the airflow in the sky surged and the light howls of the wind it emitted were slightly ear piercing.
When faced with Bai He’s move of taking the initiative to attack, Zi Shang didn’t have any intention of dodging, and with a raise of his left hand, a simple and unadorned zither once again appeared in his hand.
Under the gazes of everyone present, Zi Shang’s right hand abruptly raise up as raging Origin Energy coiled on his palm.
It wasn’t just that, at the center of his palm was strands of deep azure colored energy and red colored energy that were weaved together, and the red colored energy seemed to be gradually strengthening.
Fire drawing assistance from the force of the wind!
All of this happened in the blink of an eye.
Practically at the same instant, Zi Shang moved. He slapped out his palm and the Fire Concept and Wind Concept condensed in the center of his palm instantly warped and revolved to form a deep vortex.
“He’s going to…” Duan Ling Tian was slightly puzzled by Zi Shang’s actions.
Because Zi Shang’s palm wasn’t slapping out at Bai He, but was instead targeted the zither in his own hands.
More precisely speaking, it was heading towards the row of zither strings on the face of the zither.
Swish! Swish! Swish! Swish! Swish!
Right at this moment, the ten sword lights Bai He shot out was less than a foot away from Zi Shang, and they were about to penetrate Zi Shang’s body.
Finally, the revolving vortex on the center of Zi Shang’s palm crashed down to slap onto the row of zither strings on the face of the zither.
Instantly, the row of zither strings trembled in unison before emitting an ear piercing and enormous clang.
